“Since you trust her so much and feel that she could not have done anything deliberately harmful, wouldn’t it be more appropriate for the judicial authorities to intervene and find out the truth and clear her name?”
Master Kwan choked for a moment.
There was a part of the guests who had a hint of a good look on their faces as well.
Tsk, this Lu family and Guan family, it looks like they’re on a collision course.
I don’t know if it’s really for a child, or if it’s something else.
Just then, the old man suddenly turned pale.
He covered his chest and gasped for breath, his whole face suddenly turning red as if he couldn’t breathe.
When the Guan family saw this, their faces changed dramatically and they all jumped over at once.
“Quick, call a doctor!”
The good news is that the doctors at the Guan family are standing by, and after examining Ann just now, they didn’t leave right away and stayed outside waiting for orders.
This time even rushed in, opened the medical kit and gave first aid to the old man.
Xu Hui was so anxious that her eyes were red and she just couldn’t cry.
She turned to look at Jenny and pleaded with a compassionate tone, “Young Lady Lu, I know that you and Clara have never dealt with each other, she has done many wrong things to you in the past, and today you caught her in the act, so naturally you don’t want to let go.
But after all, today is our old man’s birthday banquet, the big day, I hope you can see the old man’s health is not good for the sake of the old man’s sake, to be forgiven and forgive people.
If you’re not satisfied with the apology Clara gave you, I’m here to apologize again on her behalf, please forgive me, if you must pursue this to the end today, it’s our old man’s life you’re after.”
Next to him, Guan Jili also said with a heavy face, “Clara is a member of our Guan family, she did something wrong, and I, as an uncle, am also responsible.
So if you’re going to pursue this, why don’t you pursue me?She didn’t intentionally kill anyone left or right, but she was just back from outside, timid, and afraid of being blamed or misunderstood.
If anything really happens to this little girl An’an today, I won’t say a word if you want her to pay for her life, but in the current situation, An’an is fine after all, and I hope that you will be kind enough to let her live, as well as our old man.”
The room was in an uproar at that.
Obviously, this is to roast Jenny Jing over the fire, if she still takes into account half of the friendship between the Lu and Guan families, she will have to let Clara go.
Jenny also really didn’t expect that things would develop like this when it came to the end.
She looked coolly at Guan Jili and said in a deep voice, “Uncle Guan and Second Aunt have spoken up to this point, if I were to pursue it, wouldn’t it be too callous of me?”
Old Mrs. Cen also frowned tightly and gave the Guan family a somewhat disgusted look.
But in the end, for the old man’s sake, didn’t say anything.
Master Lu had already leaned over at this time, concerned about his old brother’s health.
The good news is that the doctor was familiar with Master Guan’s condition, and within a few tries, he saved the man and fed him the medicine, which eased up a lot.
“Lao Guan, how are you?Still holding up, right?”
Master Guan nodded, his face getting a little better.
He looked up, at Jenny, his clouded eyes devoid of any emotion.
“It’s good that you think that way, don’t worry, I’ll take this favor today, I’ll pay you back in the future, and never let Ann suffer this grievance for nothing.”
“As long as Master Guan’s health is fine, after all, I just want justice, but I’m not going to force out a life for a justice.”
Master Kwan stalled again.
Anyone with a discerning eye could hear that she meant that he was taking his own life to force her.
But he couldn’t say anything, because it was true.
Jenny Jing and said: “As for this favor, there is no need for you to take responsibility for her, I always like to do things one person and one person, the matter has come to this point, just for your old face, I will not pursue the judicial authorities over there, but an apology should have the appearance of an apology.
Second Miss tonight, even if she didn’t really want to intentionally lure Ann into the water with a toy butterfly, it’s true that she caused her to lose her footing and fall into the water, and it’s true that she escaped on her own after the incident despite her death.
When the matter was revealed, and all the blame was laid on the maids, it was also true that three sins added up to spoil the whole birthday feast this evening.
Not only should you apologize to Ann and me, but it seems you should also bow to the maid, Rain, and all the guests whose good mood you have disturbed this evening, don’t you think?”
Clara could barely hold back, so she wanted to break into a rant.
However, the words came to my lips, but in the end, I was still raw.
Master Guan’s face was also livid.
Even Guan Jili, his face was ugly as hell.
They were not fools and would not fail to see Jenny’s intentions.
On an occasion like today, it was no longer a trivial matter for Clara to make a scandal like this.
As soon as tonight broke up, there was a guarantee that by tomorrow afternoon, tonight’s events would be well known in Kyoto’s upper echelon of celebrity circles.
By then, Clara’s reputation would be severely damaged.
But even so, Master Guan helped her support her, and no matter how bad her reputation was, she was still the high and respected Miss Guan.
Everyone knows that the old man Guan is partial to her, even if he is not satisfied, he doesn’t dare to say anything.
But if tonight, she bowed low and apologized to all the guests as well as the servants, it would be of a completely different nature.
Imagine, a high and mighty lady, bowing and apologizing one by one to those guests and maids whose status is not as high as hers in normal times, if such things were to be spread out, how could the Guan family’s face be put aside, how could Clara’s face be put aside?
By then, she’ll be a complete and utter joke!
Like a clown who, even in the most honorable of capacities, will be laughed at for the rest of his life because he once bowed his head to someone else!
This is something that people in high places will not tolerate!
“Jenny, isn’t this a bit too much…”
Guan Jiming also made a sound at the right time.
Jenny smiled: “Uncle Guan, when we were young, our teachers always taught us that we should admit our mistakes and correct them.
So why is it that now that we’ve grown up, changed identities and changed circumstances, the truths that we used to hold as truth feel too much?
Moreover, I’m doing this for your own good, the Guan family is a big family in Kyoto after all, and often times everyone goes out and represents not themselves, but the entire Guan family.
If Clara can abandon a child in the water today because she is afraid, she may not necessarily make some serious mistake next time, and if she makes some irreparable mistake, won’t it be too late to repent?”
So today, I just want to make her remember on behalf of Second Uncle that there are some mistakes that you have to admit when you’ve made them, and if you don’t want to lower that noble head, it’s better not to make such a mistake so that she’ll remember it well next time, don’t you think?”
Guan Jiming was momentarily speechless.
After chewing over her words, it even made quite a bit of sense.
And so he didn’t say anything else.
Jenny Jing squinted at Clara.
“Now, then, please start apologizing.”
Clara’s face was green and white, looking at Jenny Jing’s smiling and smug look, she just wanted to rush up and tear her apart immediately.
She bit her lower lip and turned her head in humiliation to look at Master Kwan.
But Master Guan was so livid and tense that he didn’t even glance at her.
Clara’s heart thudded.
She looked at Guan Jili again and saw him nod slightly to himself, so she knew that there was no more room to maneuver on this matter.
Despite having a thousand reluctance and unwillingness, he could only step forward and say to Rain, “I’m sorry.”
Xiaoyu had been in the Guan family for two years, and usually met these hosts with respect, when had she been apologized to by them?
At this point immediately panicked and waved his hand.
“No, it’s okay.”
Clara clenched her fists hard, her teeth clenched, and walked towards another guest, repeating to him, “I’m sorry.”
The guest also took a step back and said it was okay.
Clara moved on to the next guest.
And so it was repeated for over half an hour before all the guests were finally apologized to.
Clara swore she’d never said so much sorry in her life, though most of the people, with the Guan family’s face in mind, didn’t dare to take it big or show any funny expressions.
But there were still a few in the middle, and they couldn’t help but laugh.
Such an atmosphere, such a laugh, clearly carries an element of irony in watching a joke.
Clara’s face became even more embarrassed, almost turning purplish red.
Master Kwan, however, had long since been unable to watch, and simply had his wheelchair pushed and turned into the lounge.
After half an hour, this “apology meeting” finally came to a successful conclusion.
The birthday feast, too, came to an end with such comical scenes.
The excitement was seen and congratulated, and the guests naturally began to disperse.
Jenny Jing was satisfied with the final result, so before leaving, he went to say hello to Master Guan.
Master Guan was so angry that his eyebrows weren’t eyebrows and his eyes weren’t eyes that he didn’t even bother to look at her.
But Jenny didn’t care, still smiling after the process, before leaving with An’an.
On the other hand, Gu Changhai had watched the entire evening in his eyes, and although he didn’t say anything on his lips, his heart had grown dissatisfied with Clara.
He’s right to want to target the Lu family, so even though he knows about Clara’s past and her history with Jenny Jing, he can still let bygones be bygones as long as she’s willing to marry over with 15% of Guan’s shares.
But that doesn’t mean that he’s willing to let his son marry a dumbass who just causes trouble!
In Gu Changhai’s opinion, it didn’t matter whether Clara harmed An’an or not.
The important thing is that she’s not able to fix the mess she’s caused on her own.
How can a woman who doesn’t even have the skills to clean up the mess be worthy of his son, and what qualifications does she have to enter the Gu family?
Could it be that in the future, if she causes trouble outside, she’ll have to let the Gu family wipe her ass?
Therefore, before leaving, when Gu Changhai greeted Master Guan, he didn’t agree when Master Guan mentioned Clara and Gu’s youngest child’s marriage again.
He smiled, “The two young people are still young now, plus Yixuan has been running away recently and has no character, I’m afraid that the back has wronged Miss Guan Er, so there’s no need to rush this matter, let the two young people get along with each other again and really get familiar with each other before we talk about it.”
He didn’t flatly decline, for the old man’s sake.
But how could Master Kwan not understand what he meant?
It was clear that we were talking about it before, and just because this stunt happened tonight, we started pushing the issue that they didn’t know each other well and that we should take the long view.
It’s still because you saw what happened tonight and you’re afraid that Clara will cause trouble for the Gu family later?
Master Guan was furious, but again, he could not blame anyone else for his own shortcomings.
Broken teeth and blood swallowed, Clara’s performance tonight was in front of him, and even if Gu went back on his word, he would have nothing to say.
The rest of the guests had dispersed after sending off the Gu family.
Only then did Clara cautiously walk into the lounge.
At this point, she and Master Kwan were the only two people in the lounge.
The rest were busy with the aftermath of the birthday feast, while the servants and caretakers were guarding the door, and no one was allowed in without the old man’s orders.
Clara called out with a guilty conscience, “Grandpa.”
Master Guan turned his back to her with an expressionless “hmm”.
“Tonight, you know what went wrong?”
Clara bit her lower lip, because of the humiliation, a face to this day is still red and blushing, eyes with tears, pitiful and aggrieved to the point of frustration.
“Tell me, why are you targeting that kid?”
Clara was silent for a moment and didn’t utter a word.
She put her hands in front of her, strangling one side of her skirt, her head slightly bowed, standing in the light with a sense of weakness that I can only pity.
Kwan frowned, pushing the wheelchair around.
“Still won’t tell the truth to Grandpa?”
Clara knew that she couldn’t hide this from Master Guan, after all, the lie she had made up on the fly wasn’t that clever.
Even most of the guests this evening were not convinced by what she had to say.
It just wasn’t in the way of the Guan family’s embarrassment to say it.
At this point, facing Master Guan’s stern gaze, only after a long while did she whisper, “Because I want to take revenge.”
Kwan quirked an eyebrow.
“Revenge for what?”
Clara suddenly burst into tears.
She cried so hard, her tears smashing down like large pearls off the string, choking, “I’m sorry, Grandpa, I didn’t want to, I don’t know why I was so haunted at the time, I knew that child was innocent, but I still wanted to kill her.”
Master Guan was a little impatient.
“I’m asking you what revenge you want.”
Clara sniffed her nose, before saying, “When I was with my ex-husband, I was pregnant once, and the child was almost formed, but my sister caused a miscarriage, and I have always held a grudge.
When I came to Kyoto, I found myself alone, and she was able to enjoy family life with Ann, and it made me think of that child I used to have, and with hatred in my heart, I wanted her to have a taste of that, and that’s why I couldn’t think of making a move on Ann at once.”
She said, having begun to lose her voice.
“I’m sorry Grandpa, I really didn’t expect it to end up like this, it’s all my fault for embarrassing you and offending the entire Lu family, I’m sorry.”
Clara apologized repeatedly, though tonight, those three words had been said so many times that she was on the verge of throwing up.
But she knew that in front of Master Kwan, she had to lower her stance and put on a show.
At the very least, she couldn’t let Master Kwan be completely disappointed in her and give her up.
Sure enough, Master Guan looked at her and said in a cold voice, “Do you know what your biggest mistake is tonight?”
Clara was stunned.
Looking at him blankly, he shook his head.
“Your biggest mistake was that you didn’t kill the other guy with a single blow now that you’ve done it all, thus leaving them breathing room and a chance to turn around and deal with you again.”
He sighed and said in a deep voice: “Today is fine, just a child, and the whole incident has nothing to do with family interests, but if in the future, whenever you want to deal with a person, you must remember, to fight a snake to fight seven inches, either not to do it, when you do, must be deadly, can never give the enemy room to maneuver, otherwise, you are not only easy to give up, but also very likely to even get the original good!Even the situation can’t be grasped, and it sets you on fire, understand?”
Clara was startled.
She couldn’t believe it, as if she couldn’t believe that these words would come out of Master Guan’s mouth.
Master Kwan smiled coolly.
“There’s no need to be surprised, since you’ve entered our Guan family and become a member of the Guan family, you’ll understand these truths sooner or later.
Since time immemorial, no one in a high position has ever had completely clean hands and always needed some means to strengthen his family and position.
Don’t look at the Lu family as if they are acting high and mighty on the surface, as if they have no quarrel with the world, but in reality, that pair of grandparents have done no less evil than your grandfather.
And all these years, if it wasn’t for the fact that Biden Lu has been expanding his territory and encroaching on the power of several families outside the order, how would we have thought of using marriage as a way to stay safe?
Everything is forced, I’m old, which day in the future closed eyes, the family will have to rely on your two uncles to run, but they are wise and more than enough, but not at all in the outside, will only consistently consume itself in the internal struggle.
That’s why I called you here and gave you shares, so that you can play a binder role in the middle, I know you can do it, you’re smart, not even worse than your two uncles, as long as your heart is in the Guan family and you’re dedicated to it, the rest, Grandpa won’t even bother with you, understand?”
Clara’s heart vibrated and nodded.
“I understand, Grandpa.”
Kwan closed his eyes tiredly and waved his hand at her.
“Well, I’m tired, so get out and let the nurses in.”
Only then did Clara respectfully answered yes and turned around and walked out.
On the other hand, Ann came home with Jenny, took a shower, and lay down on the bed so that Jenny could tell her a story.
Because the little one was in shock today, Jenny didn’t trust her to sleep alone and planned to stay with her for the night.
As soon as she finished telling a story, the little gnome suddenly asked, “Mommy, did that Auntie Maya push Ani into the water today because Ani shouldn’t have overheard her talking to Grandpa Kwan?”
Jenny was stunned.
She said softly, “Didn’t you say that she and your Grandpa Kwan didn’t talk about anything?”
The gnome frowned.
“It’s nothing that was said, but I always thought that the two of them had a strange, somewhat bad look about them.”
Jenny was slightly startled.
A child’s intuition is the most accurate.
Even though she might not understand those meanings in the other’s language, she could feel right from the expression and the atmosphere, the good and evil of the other.
She just didn’t understand something, Clara was clearly Guan Ji Ming who had found her.
By all rights, she should have been on the same side as Guan Ji Ming in the Guan family’s camp.
And why would he be talking to Guan JiLi on the side?
She pondered for a moment and softly reassured, “Maybe, but that’s okay, we didn’t mean for Ann to eavesdrop, right?”
Ani nodded heavily.
“So whatever the reason, she shouldn’t have done this to you, it’s her fault, we don’t have to think about it too much Ann.”
Ann gave an oddly understanding “Oh”.
Soon, the child was tired, so Jenny didn’t continue to tell her stories, and only after lulling her to sleep did this turn off the lights and rest herself.
At this point, off the family.
As Clara was about to return to her room, she saw a faint dusting of white on the door handle of her room.
She gave a slight pause and looked around to make sure no one was around before heading to the other end of the hallway.
“Uncle, you wanted to see me?”
In the darkened room, Clara looked at the man standing in front of her and asked in a warm voice.
Guan Jili’s face was incomparably ugly.
“How many times have I told you not to mess with the Luke’s, and then you go and do something to that kid right after I’m done with you on the front foot, are you really tired of living?”
Faced with Guan JiLi’s anger, Clara shrank slightly, clearly afraid.
But she had the audacity to explain, “I didn’t mean to kill her, just because, she saw us talking together and I was worried about what she heard…”
“What did you say?”
Guan Jili was stunned.
Clara pursed her lips, “It was just now, when you asked me to meet you in the back garden, she secretly heard everything we said.”
Guan JiLi instantly changed his face.
He was silent for a moment, his eyes becoming birds of prey.
“Are you sure she heard it all?”
Clara also gently knitted her brows.
“I guess so, I didn’t find out about her until after you left, but she was running too fast to catch her, so I just used the butterfly toy to draw her out afterwards to silence her, I didn’t think it would end up like that.”
Guan Jili stopped talking for a moment.
He was trying to remember what he had said to King Maya tonight.
After going over the memories, it was a small relief to make sure there wasn’t any particularly obvious evidence.
“Just, she’s a child, she can’t suspect anything, even if she told Biden Lu and the others, it’s just suspicion at most, we are already nephews, it’s normal to stand together and talk for a while, but you, don’t be so shocked, the slightest stirring of the wind and then kill someone, do you still think this is a small place like Visterdem?If something happens, our entire Guan family will be buried with you, do you understand?”
Clara slightly bowed her head and softly said, “I understand.”
