Guan Yue Wan’s face changed slightly, and her guilty conscience became even more obvious.
At this time, even as dazed as Ji Yunshu, he sensed that something was wrong.
He looked at Jenny and then turned to look at Guan Yue Wan, his eyebrows locked up deeply.
“Wan Wan, do you know something?Don’t be afraid, I’m here, if you want to talk about it, say so.”
I said, and took her hand, trying to use it to give her some strength.
Guan Yue Wan’s eyes flashed with a tangled colour and did not open her mouth.
Jenny wasn’t in a hurry and kept waiting for her quietly.
That necklace has a longer chain, and when it’s worn, the pendant is usually hidden in your clothes.
And she rarely wore low-necked clothes, so there was no way she would have known that the pendant on the necklace was ruby if she hadn’t already known the necklace.
Guan Yue Wan was so torn now, so there must be something else going on.
Now that the matter had been punctured, she knew that if Guan Yue Wan wanted to talk, she would definitely say it, and if she didn’t want to, there was no use pushing her even if she was in a hurry.
Moreover, her current relationship with Guan Yue Wan wasn’t bad, as Ji Yun Shu and Biden Lu were good brothers, and she and Guan Yue Wan were quite a bit like sisters-in-law.
If Guan Yue Wan wanted to go on well with Ji Yun Shu in the future, she would definitely not do anything to hurt her.
In fact, Jenny had guessed correctly.
After half a struggle, Guan Yue Wan decided to tell the truth in the end.
She looked at Jenny, a hint of hesitation on her face, and tangled, “Jenny, I’ve actually… seen that necklace you’re wearing before.”
Jenny raised an eyebrow.
“Where did you meet?”
“I don’t remember much, it was when I was very young, I think I went back to my old house to play with my cousin’s aunt, and I saw it in her room, but I don’t remember much about it exactly, it was a long, long time ago.”
Jenny Jing’s face changed.
“Who is Aunt Cousin?”
Ji Yunshu explained, “The Guan family has only one daughter in the first line, Wan Wan’s cousin aunt, which of course is Guan Ji Wan.”
Jenny shook fiercely.
How is that possible?
Guan Yue Wan looked at her shocked look and added evenly, “But I only have a vague memory of it, I only think that the one you were wearing before is very similar to the one I saw when I was a kid, as for whether it’s the same one or not, I’m actually not sure, so it’s possible that I’m overthinking it.”
Jenny Jing looked slightly pale and did not speak.
For some reason, she suddenly remembered what Kelly Wang had told her a long time ago, when she had retrieved this necklace.
She said, “Jenny, one day you’ll regret it!
Why would she say that?
What could she regret?
Jenny suddenly didn’t dare to think that something, like a seed buried deep in the earth, was suddenly about to break through the ground at that moment.
Guan Yuewan saw that she didn’t look too good, and momentarily regretted it, blaming herself for not having started this topic.
Just then, Ann, who had been sitting next to her with her eyes wide open, eating a lollipop as she watched blankly as the adults spoke words she couldn’t understand, suddenly brightened up.
Happily, he shouted “Daddy” and ran towards the door.
Jenny came back to her senses and looked up, and it was indeed Biden Lu coming over.
The frozen atmosphere was instantly lifted by his arrival, and Guan Yuewan and Ji Yun
Shu stood up and greeted Biden Lu with a smile, “Second brother, you’re here.”
Biden Lu hugged Ann and nodded towards them.
Upon glancing back, I noticed that Jenny didn’t look too good.
He frowned and asked, “What’s wrong?What were you guys talking about?”
Guan Yue Wan and Ji Yun Shu both turned pale.
Biden Lu’s name of protecting his wife was famous among his brothers, and if he knew that he was the one who had upset Jenny Jing, he might suffer some kind of retaliation.
Thus, Ji Yunshu spoke with extreme eye contact, “That second brother, we still have things to do, so we’ll pass without disturbing the gathering of your family of three.”
Saying that, he pulled Guan Yue Wan and hurriedly left.
Lu Jing gave them a deep glance and sat down next to Jenny with An An in his arms, softly saying, “What did Ji Xiao Si say to you?”
Jenny shook his head.
She paused, looked up at him, and said in a deep voice, “It’s not Dr. Ji, it’s Guan Yue Wan.”
Biden Lu’s brows knitted together.
“It’s nothing really, it’s just about the necklace my mother left me, Guan Yuewan said she had seen it in the Guan family when she was a child, I find it a bit strange, reasonably speaking, my mother has nothing to do with the Guan family, and couldn’t have appeared in the Guan family a decade or two ago, but Guan Yuewan said she had seen it, I’m a bit confused….”
Biden Lu’s face was slightly pale.
“Did she say when she saw it?”
Jenny was stunned, and only then did he remember, shaking his head incessantly, “No, I forgot to ask.”
Soon, Jenny Jing found an opportunity to ask Guan Yue Wan alone.
But Guan Yue Wan actually couldn’t remember much, only that it was when she was only a few years old, and since her father was still close to this side of the old mansion at that time, she would often have the opportunity to come over and play.
But then their father was abandoned by the side of the old house, and they had fewer opportunities to come to the old house, and as time went by, they basically wouldn’t come over without something special.
It was just a couple of years of more opportunities as she grew up and stood out from the younger generation.
Therefore, if her memory was correct, the time she saw the necklace could only be a few years old.
Jenny didn’t seem too disappointed after hearing that, though he still hadn’t set a specific time.
It’s nothing more than speculation on their part to go around this.
Guan Jiwan had died, and whether the necklace had anything to do with her or not, it had no meaning now.
To her, it was just a relic her mother had left her, a memory.
Having figured this out, Jenny didn’t dwell on it, and after the evening meal, he followed everyone to the open-air garden at the back.
The garden is built on the water, with a large fountain in the middle, near the lawn on this side, there are many small tables and bar, with a variety of drinks and snacks, and a professional band playing at one end of the lawn, quite a bit of western style.
An An was taken away by the old lady, so Jenny Jing was left alone with Biden Lu.
Tailor Feng and Kepler and the others were also here, and although Jenny Jing was still full of opinions about Kepler, it was difficult to put on a good face since today was Master Guan’s birthday banquet, so he didn’t say anything.
A few people gathered and chatted for a while, and then they saw a soft figure not far away coming this way.
“Lu Shao, Feng Shao, Ji Shao, Miss Hua, Sister, you’re all here.”
Clara greeted everyone in one breath, her tone gentle and her smile sweet.
She was wearing a white evening gown with diamonds on the chest, looking gorgeous and generous, with a fishtail design that outlined a slender figure, straightening her neck as if she were a proud and holy princess.
If I hadn’t known her already, I would have been fooled by just looking at her appearance.
Ji Yunshu gave her a slight nod, and Nina Hua snorted, deflecting her head and not bothering to pay attention to her.
Clara didn’t feel embarrassed when she saw this and smiled, “Today is Grandfather’s birthday banquet, thank you very much for coming over to visit, I’ll toast to you all on behalf of Grandfather.”
Nina Hua sneered, “I’ve seen many people in this world who don’t know what they’re doing, and it’s the first time I’ve seen someone like this who doesn’t know what they’re doing and is using a chicken feather as a token arrow, don’t think you can really change your skin and turn from a pheasant into a phoenix, not knowing that your chicken feather tail is already showing, just waiting to be laughed at.”
Tailor Feng couldn’t help but puff out a laugh at the words.
In terms of poisonous mouths, it was Nina Hua’s mouth that was the most poisonous.
Of course, if Jenny and Biden Lu deride people, they are no less derisive, but they are rather noble and never bother to spend much time with such people.
Clara’s smile was slightly stiff, but in the end, it had been years of cultivation, and now the characterization was long gone.
She quickly calmed down and regained her composure, saying softly, “I know Miss Hua has always had some misunderstandings about me, but that’s okay, as they say, as time goes by, I believe that when the days are long, Miss Hua will believe that I’m not the kind of person you think I am.
And if you want to talk about pheasant to phoenix, compared to me, it seems that some people are more suitable for this phrase, after all, I am at least the grandfather’s own granddaughter, I can have everything today, that is called ancestor recognition.
Unlike some people, who can rise to the heavens in one step with just a single tool and a face, and be on par with the world from then on, so if you really want to talk about it, it’s more appropriate than me to say that!”
Nina Hua necked furiously.
“What did you say?”
Biden Lu and Kepler’s faces also sank.
Clara, still with that smiling and relaxed look, softly said, “Why is Miss Hua so angry?You wanted to discuss about the pheasant and the phoenix, I just discussed it with you on a matter of fact, Miss Wahl is so angry, is it because I accidentally said something?
Oh, I’m really sorry if I’m right, I’m just saying it off the cuff, and please don’t just take a seat, or it wouldn’t be good to have a misunderstanding, don’t you think?”
Nina Hua was so angry that his face was green and white, but in front of so many people, and it was someone’s birthday banquet, he always had to consider Master Guan’s face, so it was not good to tear his face in public.
Jenny secretly tugged at her sleeve.
She raised her eyes to look at Clara, the corners of her lips curved up in a beautiful curve, and said in a warm voice: “Second Miss Jing can explain a common saying so clearly and thoroughly, it seems that you haven’t missed studying these five words, in that case, I’ll give you seven more words, more action, more righteousness, more death!
The first thing you need to know is that you can’t be a part of the team, and you can’t be a part of the team without being a part of the team.
A smart person would know that in a situation like this, it’s the right thing to do with your tail between your legs, and yet you keep on provoking
We, what?Is it that Miss Kwan’s seat is uncomfortable and you want to come down for a walk?”
Clara’s face turned suddenly pale.
She stared at Jenny with a deadly stare, the gaze seemingly quenched with poison, hating to poison her to death right away.
Jenny Jing was fine with it, she had already gotten tired of fighting with Clara over the years.
The look in her eyes didn’t kill her at all.
Biden Lu spoke at the right time beside him.
“If I were Second Miss Jing, I wouldn’t be here to speak sarcastic words, but instead, I would guard the old man well, burning incense and worshipping Buddha every day, begging him to live a long life, after all, this fake is a fake after all, and if anything happens to the old man, I’m afraid that by then it won’t be us who would want you to be in trouble the most, but those around you, Second Miss Jing, what do you think?”
Clara’s face turned pale again.
However, this time she didn’t say anything else, just then Guan Jili sent someone to call her over, so she snorted and turned around.
Nina Hua looked at her departing back and sneered in disdain, “Villainous!”
Jenny couldn’t help but laugh and turned to look at her, “What are you getting angry with her for?It’s not like you know what she’s like on the first day, and you don’t have to affect your mood for nothing.”
Nina Hua was still a little angry.
Holding his arms, he looked depressed.
“I just don’t like the way she looks like that, what the hell, she really thinks she’s the mistress of the Guan family, I don’t know who was driven out of Visterdem like a lost dog in the first place!”
The smile on Jenny’s face faded.
She looked in the direction Clara had left, thoughtful.
“The fact that a lost dog was able to climb back up to where she is now in just a few months just highlights how good she is.”
Nina Hua sneered.
“The scourge of a thousand years!”
“It’s not going to be a scourge on us left or right, and the gods that the Guan family themselves invited back will be let them work it out in the end.”
The group stopped dwelling on the matter and changed the subject of conversation.
On the other hand, Guan Jili brought Clara to a corner and said in a gloomy voice, “What did you just say to them?”
Clara lowered her head slightly, looking like a coward, “Didn’t say anything, just saw an acquaintance, so I went over to say hello.”
Guan Jili said in an angry voice, “What greeting?Don’t you know who you are?Who are Jenny and Biden Lu?You know they’re looking at you badly and still run over there of your own accord, you’re really having a good day trying to get yourself in trouble aren’t you?”
Clara pursed her lips.
She looked up and gave Guan Jili a glance that showed a few hints of aggravation.
“Uncle, I actually didn’t want to take the initiative to go over there, but everyone out there knows that my sister and I had a big problem before, and now that I’m back in the Guan family, the past is still going to have a big impact on me.
It’s true that the Jing family was sorry to her in the first place, but this matter has nothing to do with me, so I was thinking that I could repair my relationship with her, so that as long as she’s willing to forgive me, the people outside will see how close I am to her and naturally won’t say anything else, so it’s good for me and you, isn’t it?”
Guan Jili looked at her with cold eyes, his face still gloomy.
“You think I’m going to believe you when you say that?You and Jenny’s grudges can’t be forgiven with an apology?
How many times have I told you to behave yourself and not to cause trouble for me, and you’ve taken those words at face value haven’t you?”
Clara was scolded, and Rao, no matter how good natured, could not help but raise a few flames.
She bit her lip, unconvinced, “Even if she’s offended, what can she do to me?I don’t believe she would dare risk making the old man sick again by telling the truth!If that’s the case, but if anything happens to the old man, she’ll be the sinner of the Guan family, and then, not to mention the Guan family, the Lu family’s old man will have a problem with her.”
Guan Jili didn’t expect her to say that and was momentarily speechless.
Looking at her again, I can’t help but be a little more wary.
“I’m warning you, don’t think that you have this leverage to do what you owe for Sokuya, our goal is not in Jenny, if you delay business because of your whims, I will never forgive you.”
Clara was not even slightly impressed by the words.
She squared down and said warmly, “Uncle, don’t worry, I won’t delay the business.But I do worry a bit, will someone be jealous of me and run to Grandfather to say something, one person said I’m not afraid, but if there are more people saying it, Grandfather will inevitably not get suspicious, what should I do then?”
Guan Jili looked at her with a meaningless sneer.
“What are you afraid of?The worst that can happen is that I’ll drag you to a paternity test. You’re already a child of our Guan family, so there’s no need to be afraid.Don’t you think?”
He said, the tone of his voice suddenly chilled, the gaze with a trifle mocking, like populated with ice, causing Clara to shudder.
She even bowed her head and said respectfully, “Yes, I know.”
It was only then that Guan JiLi turned to leave.
Clara was relieved, touched her hair, and was heading back to the garden.
However, at this moment, there was a sudden “pop” sound.
She was slightly stunned, and then her face changed dramatically.
It was dark up ahead, and the moonlight and lights weaved in and out of shadows on a few flush flowering trees in the corner.
A shadow reflected in the cloister behind the marble portico, silent and ravenous all around.
Clara’s heart pounded furiously.
She looked around to make sure no one was around, before carefully walking towards the place where the noise had just come from.
It was only after walking over to the tree that I realized there was indeed no one under the tree.
Although it was a Qi people tall tree, the crown was fat and the branches below were only waist high, if a normal person wanted to hide here, they would have to cat their waist, it was impossible to escape so quickly.
Was she mistaken?
Kyo was secretly relieved, thinking that maybe it was a feral cat from whoever was around here, or the sound of the wind blowing small rocks off the flower pots!
She put her foot down and was about to leave, when something diaphragm under her foot.
Clara was slightly stunned and took a step back to see a pink Peculiar Piggy hairpin lying on the grass.
She frowned slightly and bent down to pick up the hairpin.
There was no dew on the top of the hairpin, and it still had the residual warmth of a silky human body, which had obviously been dropped there not long ago.
Such a hairpin would obviously only be worn by a child of a few years old, and there were no such girls in the Kwan family, and there were very few guests who brought children with them today.
Except for her….
Clara’s gaze suddenly went cold.
Jenny Jing and Biden Lu accompanied Tailor Feng and a few others to chat for a while before leaving the back garden to go to the front to find Master Lu and the old lady.
The old man and the old lady were old enough to dislike the noise of the young people, so they had been chatting with Kwan in the lounge.
Also with them were Gu Changhai and the old lady of the Feng family.
When Jenny passed by, Ani happened to be being held by a maid and was walking to the lounge.
Jenny shouted, and Ann’s eyes lit up as she heard the turn back.
As soon as he threw away the maid’s hand, he pounced in the direction of Jenny and Biden Lu.
Ann is slowly growing a little taller now, and her health is improving, so she’s a lot stronger than before.
Biden Lu was worried that Jenny Jing would be jumped over by her in her high heels today, so he took a step forward and picked her up in advance.
Ann didn’t care, hugged Biden Lu’s neck and said happily shouting, “Mommy, where have you been?I haven’t seen you all night.”
Jenny Jing laughed, “Mommy and Daddy went to talk with your Aunt Yao Yao and the others, why are you out here by yourself?What about not being with Grandma and Grandpa?”
Ann wrinkled her little nose and said in dissatisfaction, “Grandma and Grandpa are talking all the time, it’s not funny, Ann doesn’t want to play with them.”
Jenny couldn’t help but laugh.
The maid with her next to her explained, “Miss An’an wanted to go to the bathroom, so the old lady asked me to take her there, just finished and was about to go back!Just saw you guys coming.”
Jenny Jing nodded and said to Biden Lu, “Let’s go in as well.”
Biden Lu nodded, and they walked to the lounge with the child in their arms.
The lounge was chatting animatedly, and when he saw them come in, Master Guan greeted them with a smile.
“The land boy and the land daughter-in-law are here too, come in and sit down.”
Jenny then sat over with Biden Lu, and seeing that the youngest Gu was also sitting opposite, with Gu Changhai, positioned particularly close to Master Guan, his heart was about a few points clearer.
“I’m very happy that everyone is here today, it’s been a long time since our four big families have had a really hot and lively gathering like today.”
Kwan sighed and sighed.
“My health has not been very good, Guan family these years, fortunately, you three families to take care of, in fact, I know in my heart, my unworthy sons and grandsons, all day long, except for the flowers and wine, hooking hearts, nothing else.
But as the saying goes, “Children and grandchildren will have their own blessings.” When I’m old, I don’t care what happens to them, and I don’t want to care.If all of you here can’t see past it in the future, if you can give a helping hand, my old Guan’s spirit can rest in peace in heaven.”
A group of people in the audience frowned as they listened.
But it wasn’t that the old man’s words were so awkward, it was that on a joyous occasion like today, these words of life and death were a bit of a deal breaker.
It was not like a birthday banquet, but rather like an explanation of the aftermath.
One of the most gloomy faces, of course, is the one that has been standing behind the old man, Ji Mingli.
Jenny Jing slightly dropped his eyes and smiled, “Grandpa Guan this is not right, the other people in the Guan family I do not know well, so I do not understand, but I know Uncle Guan Er, is actually a dragon and phoenix among people, not to mention among the peers, even the younger generation, may not be able to stand out, Grandpa Guan do not be too presumptuous.”
