Chapter 731: We Have To Get The Jade Back
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Old Madam Yang turned off the stove. “Don’t even think about it. That jade belongs to Yaoyao.”
He Xiaoman pressed her temples. “You are so stubborn. Huo Yao is from the Huo family and isn’t your biological granddaughter. How can you give her such an expensive piece of jade?”
The moment Old Madam Yang heard what He Xiaoman said, she frowned and corrected He Xiaoman. “That is just an ordinary piece of jade and isn’t worth anything.”
“How could that piece of jade be worthless? Never mind. You are from the countryside, so you know nothing about jade. Just give it to me. I really need it..” He Xiaoman did her best to sound gentle.
“I can’t give it to you. Just give up already,” said Old Madam Yang composedly before hanging up altogether.
He Xiaoman instantly became livid when she heard the dial tone. “This old woman is too much.”
He Xiaoman called Old Madam Yang again, but all she received was an automated message saying her phone was off. She felt absolutely furious.
Lu Xia glanced at He Xiaoman and asked softly. “Mom, what did Granny say?
“She wants to give the piece of jade to Huo Yao,” replied He Xiaoman helplessly.
Lu Xia looked frustrated as well. The jade was intended for Old Madam Yang’s biological granddaughter. Was Huo Yao fit to own it?
Huo Yao had already reunited with the Huo family, but she continued pretending to be Old Madam Yang’s filial granddaughter. Did Huo Yao even want their family heirloom?
How could someone as disgusting as Huo Yao exist?
“No matter what, we have to get the jade back. We can’t let the old lady give it to that stupid girl,” said He Xiaoman deeply.
He Xiaoman paced up and down the living room with the phone in hand before she suddenly said, “This won’t do. I have to go back tomorrow.”
She was worried that Old Madam Yang would really give the jade to Huo Yao.
Lu Xia thought about what happened today and said softly, ” Mom, I think you shouldn’t go for now. Those people from the Huo family are all ruthless.”
He Xiaoman looked at the bruise on her palm before she stomped her foot infuriatingly. Moments later, she stopped talking about going home the next day.
Meanwhile, Old Madam Yang retrieved a cup after hanging up the phone and seemed preoccupied as she poured the ginger tea from the small pot.
It was a small stainless pot and its handle was hot, but she wanted to pick it up with her bare hands.
Huo Yao was leaning against the door frame lazily when she saw this. She quickly walked over and held Old Madam Yang’s hand before she touched the pot handle.
She said somewhat solemnly, “It’s burning hot. How can you pick it with your bare hands?”
She reached out for a towel nearby and covered the handle before pouring the ginger tea into the cup.
Old Madam Yang finally snapped out of her daze. A smile suddenly emerged on her wrinkled face. “Well, what do I have you around for?”
Huo Yao glanced at her. “Don’t even try to talk your way out of it. What happens when I am not around? What is going to happen if you get hurt?”
The moment Old Madam Yang heard about Huo Yao leaving, she instantly looked sad. She quickly recalled something and raised her head.
She giggled and said, “I will be careful. As for you, you have already spent several days here. I am sure your parents miss you, so you should go back as soon as possible.”
“Are you trying to drive me away?” asked Huo Yao, leaning against the side.
A sour taste rose in Old Madam Yang’s mouth, but she swallowed it and did not dare to make eye contact with Huo Yao. Instead, she said softly, “After all, this isn’t your home.”
Her voice trembled as she spoke.
