Chapter 962 - Didn’t Anyone Tell You?
It was clear at a glance that they were familiar with each other.
If Lu Zheng and his wife did not like Xu Yini, there would never have been the rumors that the Xu family would be marrying into the Lu family.
Although Xu Yini had a bad temper and had done some unseemly things in the past, her family background, appearance, and education were all very impressive.
A few years ago, she had been one of the most admired socialites in the Capital.
The Xu family and the Lu family were old friends. Xu Yini had been calling Lu Zheng and his wife “Uncle” and “Aunt” since she was young.
How could Shen Li compare to this?
When Zhou Lan heard this, her heart finally wavered.
“What you said makes sense. Then… Xu Yini…”
Yu Yu shook her hand.
“Actually, she didn’t do it to help us. She did it to help herself. But no matter what, it’s fine as long as the outcome benefits us, don’t you think so?”
When Yu Yu walked out of the residential area, the sky was already completely dark.
She walked towards the underground garage.
After facing great difficulty while dealing with Yu Ming and Zhou Lan, she was exhausted and feeling a little nauseous.
However, she still had to endure it.
When she thought about how she would have to deal with the series of problems later on, she felt even more annoyed.
She still had to speed up the progress on the Yu Corporation’s end…
As she was thinking about this, her phone suddenly rang.
Yu Yu frowned and impatiently took out her phone. However, when she saw the caller ID, her expression instantly changed.
She looked left and right to make sure that there was no one around before she picked up the call.
Her voice was very low.
“Why are you calling me again?”
A man’s laughter came through the receiver.
“Second Miss Yu, I know that you’ve been very busy recently and I don’t want to waste your time, so I’ll be direct. I’m a little short on money recently and I’d like to ask Second Miss Yu for help.”
Yu Yu frowned.
“Didn’t I just give you a sum of money?”
“Ah, I’ve come to look for Second Miss Yu after having spent that sum.” The man was still smiling. “To Second Miss Yu, that bit of money is nothing, right?”
Yu Yu took a deep breath.
“I haven’t had much recently either. Let’s discuss it after some time later.”
“How can that be? People will die if they don’t have money.” The man spoke in a joking manner. “After all, I’m not Yu Cheng. If I were in prison, then I could live without money.”
Yu Yu clenched her fists tightly.
“How much do you want?”
“Not much, just double what you gave me last time.”
“You!” Yu Yu took a deep breath. “I’m warning you! Don’t go too far!”
The man seemed to be a little surprised.
“Me, go too far? Second Miss Yu, no matter how much I go, how can I compare to you? You seem to have forgotten how your brother became addicted to drugs, right?”
“Tell me, if the Yu family found out that you were the one who personally sent him down this path, how would they react?”
The dim yellow light from the street lamps shone on Yu Yu’s pale lips.
After a long while, she gritted her teeth and said, “Understood. I’ll transfer the money to you.”
The other party responded cheerfully.
“Second Miss Yu has always been very efficient. I hope you won’t disappoint me.”
Yu Yu hung up the phone.
She closed her eyes as she felt the strong urge to throw her phone away, but in the end, she endured it and turned around to leave.
That morning, Xu Yini received a call saying that the earrings she had ordered had already arrived in the Capital and invited her to the store.
She carefully tidied up her appearance before leaving.
At 11 a.m., she arrived at CHUIN’s only physical store in the Capital.
This was a high-end brand on the same level as G&S in the heart of the Capital. Its prod store was over a thousand square meters.
When Yu Yu arrived, there was no one in the store. It was extremely spacious and empty.
A store assistant eagerly came up to her.
“Miss Xu, the earrings you ordered are inside. Please follow me.”
Xu Yini frowned.
“Where’s your store manager?”
Every time she came over, the store manager would always personally receive her. Why was it just a store assistant this time?
The shopkeeper noticed that she was angry and quickly apologized with a smile.
“I’m really sorry, Miss Xu. The store manager is busy at the moment and can’t spare any time, so I’ll be serving you for the time being.”
Xu Yini was still dissatisfied.
“What else is so important? The store manager is in charge of that pair of earrings. Of course, he should come now.”
After all, this was luxury jewelry. If the customers were not satisfied with the goods, immediate action would have to be taken after.
The store assistant looked hesitant, but seeing that Xu Yini was not going to let the matter go, all she could say was,”The store manager is on the second floor, receiving another VIP.”
Xu Yini glanced upstairs.
The money she spent at CHUIN every year was more than seven figures. Even though she had come here today, she had to wait behind someone else?
The shopkeeper asked carefully, “Miss Xu, why don’t you take a look at the earrings first? The store manager should be done soon…”
Just then, footsteps came from upstairs.
Xu Yini looked up and saw that the store manager from CHUIN was leading a person down.
“Miss Shen, please watch your step.”
The store manager’s smile was very polite and warm.
Xu Yini’s expression instantly changed.
So, that so-called distinguished guest was actually Shen Li?!
As if sensing her gaze, Shen Li suddenly stopped and looked at her.
Their eyes met, and the atmosphere became tense.
Xu Yini looked her up and down from head to toe. She thought of something and sneered,”Isn’t it too late to remember to order a gift now?”
She had rushed to buy so early, yet even she had not been able to get the three rubies that she liked the most. Now that Shen Li was here, wouldn’t she only be able to pick from the leftovers?
Shen Li frowned slightly.
The store manager next to her realized that Xu Yini had misunderstood, so he quickly explained.
“Miss Xu, I think you’re mistaken. Miss Shen is here today to pick up the brooch that was custom-made here for Eldest Madam Gu.”
The moment these words were said, the shop fell silent.
Xu Yini’s expression had become somewhat unsightly. Only then did she see that Shen Li was indeed holding a bag in her hand.
So, she was to pick something up for the eldest madam of the Gu family…
Shen Li ignored her and followed the store manager down the stairs. She said goodbye again and looked as if she was about to leave.
Xu Yini looked at her and a light suddenly flashed through her mind.
Shen Li’s footsteps paused, and she turned around to look at her.
Xu Yini looked her up and down, and suddenly smiled.
“Shen Li, don’t tell me you still don’t know?”
Shen Li frowned slightly, and a hint of impatience appeared in her eyes.
This reaction, in Xu Yi’s eyes, immediately confirmed her guess.
She looked somewhat incredulous, but there also seemed to be a look of mockery and happiness on her face.
She enunciated each word clearly as she said, “Uncle Lu Zheng and Aunt Fang are unexpectedly coming back… Didn’t anyone tell you?”
