Chapter 68: Priceless Treasure
But before Jiang Ran could finish, Jiang Guo took a step forward and picked up the book very carefully.
“Where did you find it? I’ve asked someone to look for this unique copy for a long time, but I still couldn’t find it!”
It was a chess book, and Jiang Guo was a chess addict. He had asked someone to look for this chess book a year ago.
He had just learned that an old man had this chess book in his possession.
Jiang Guo had even offered a high price to buy it, but that old man refused to sell it no matter what.
He had never thought that this chess book would appear in front of her like this.
“That’s great! Jiang Yu, how did you know that I’ve been looking for this ancient book!”
“This is a priceless treasure!”
In an instant, many people could tell that the gift that Jiang Yu had taken out was not some piece of trash, but something priceless.
Jiang Yu was also stunned for a moment. She did not understand why it was a tattered ancient book. However, she believed that the gift that Mo Long prepared would not be wrong.
Now that she saw how much Jiang Guo liked it, she immediately understood.
Jiang Ran stood awkwardly on the spot. Her fingers were still pointing at Jiang Yu. She was thinking that after today, Jiang Yu would definitely have a bad reputation in the circle of wealthy families.
Who would have thought…
Jiang Hai also heaved a sigh of relief. He quickly looked at Jiang Ran and said, “Didn’t you say that this thing is not valuable? Why aren’t you apologizing to your sister?”
“Dad! I… I originally thought that this was a tattered old book. I also reminded my sister not to make mistakes for her own good. I didn’t expect that I was wrong.”
Jiang Ran quickly changed her excuse and apologized to Jiang Guo, “Uncle, I’m sorry. I was rash.”
Jiang Guo was still happy, so he didn’t care about such a small matter.
Only Jiang Yu said coldly, “Oh, you thought it was an old book? I remember that you haven’t even seen the gift I prepared, my good sister!”
Jiang Yu’s words made Jiang Ran feel extremely awkward.
“Sister, I really did it for your own good. I thought you were short of money recently and couldn’t prepare any gifts. I’ve apologised to you okay?”
Seeing that all the guests were looking in her direction, Jiang Ran’s expression changed.
Jiang Ran gritted her teeth and immediately acted like they were sisters.
“Heh!” Jiang Yu snorted coldly. She was about to say something when Jiang Hai interrupted her. “Alright, let’s go in quickly. Your uncle still needs to entertain the other guests.”
Just like that, a farce was forcefully interrupted by Jiang Hai.
He did not want to see his two daughters continue to clash at such an occasion.
No matter who won the argument, he would be the one who would lose face.
Jiang Guo looked at Jiang Yu in a new light. He immediately smiled at Jiang Yu and said, “Jiang Yu, hurry up and go in. You and Yao’er will also meet. Both of you are of the same age. There will definitely be something to talk about.”
Jiang Yao was the young miss who was engaged today.
Jiang Yu paused for a moment and did not say anything in the end.
She just nodded lightly and walked in.
However, she felt rather sad in her heart.
She did not expect Jiang Hai to believe Jiang Ran’s words and accuse her before she had even verified it clearly.
And after she had proven her innocence, Jiang Hai still protected Jiang Ran and did not let her make a fool of herself.
In other words, Jiang Ran was the young miss whose identity could not be tarnished. And it didn’t matter what happened to her, right?
Jiang Yu was a little unhappy.
She greeted Jiang Yao, but Jiang Yao probably didn’t know her very well, so she ignored her. Instead, she chatted and laughed with Jiang Ran. After all, the two of them had been in contact since they were young.
They had a lot of common topics.
When Jiang Hai saw Jiang Yu’s dull look, he immediately shook his head in his heart.
No matter how well-dressed Jiang Yu looked, she grew up in the countryside and had no ink in her stomach. When she came to such an occasion to socialize with socialites, Jiang Yu couldn’t say a word.
She looked as if she was mute.
