A car slowly entered the old Yun family home, joining several other cars that were also parked in the courtyard.
"Young Madam!" Xie Shiyi looked anxiously at Yun Bixue.
Yun Bixue patted Xie Shiyi's hands. "Relax, I have long prepared for this day."
Since her grandfather had already allowed her to act freely, she had no hesitation.
When Yun Bixue arrived at the main hall, all eyes simultaneously fell on her.
A black gown with a long trail complemented her elegance and glamor. Her hair was pulled back into a high ponytail.
On her slender neck hung a lustrous jade necklace that showcased her. It highlighted how gorgeous and luxurious she was. She looked remarkably dazzling and striking.
Everyone seemed to be in disbelief as they blinked their eyes. Was this the same Yun family's Young Lady who had virtually no presence?
Yun Bixue gave a sweeping look over the guests in the main hall and scoffed. The Shen family, Qin family, and Su family had all sent their representatives. It seemed like she possessed some standing that could make Old Lady Shen's guests turn up.
With that glance, she took in every single expression from the crowd.
Su Lengxian couldn't reconcile with the person she saw before her. Was this the same Yun Bixue who had been previously abandoned by her Su Family?
Why was she so dazzling now? Even as a female, she couldn't redirect her line of sight.
Yun Mengshi widened her eyes pitifully, but her fists were tightly clenched—so tight that it could almost cut her palm.
It was Old Lady Shen who reacted first. Propping herself up using her walking stick, she trembled as she rose. "Bixue is back! Quickly come here. This child, Grandma had told you to come at 10, but it is already 12 o'clock. You had agreed to return, and I thought you weren't coming anymore!" Old Lady Shen spoke in an affectionate manner.
Yun Bixue also smiled gently. "Grandma, I prepared a jade statue of the Goddess of Mercy for you. You did not like the accessory that I gifted you previously. You said you were exhausted from slogging all your life and wanted to rest and be leisurely. The best option would be to be religious. I entrusted someone to find this statue, but I could only purchase it after some time."
Accepting the box made of jade from Xie Shiyi, she opened it.
A few people exclaimed. Such a valuable item; Yun Bixue is really thoughtful. This is invaluable and can not be bought with just money.
The hearts of Old Lady Shen and Shen Wenqi instead skipped a beat. Through her words, Yun Bixue was undoubtedly insinuating that she wished for Old Lady Shen to retire and wash her hands off the Yun family's affairs. How could that happen! When did that lass become so eloquent?
Old Lady Shen recovered shortly, delightfully accepting the gift from Yun Bixue. "Bixue, you sure are filial. You are so kind to your grandma. No matter how weary I am, I cannot give everything up. I will still worry myself over the current circumstances of our Yun family, but I truly cherish your gift. Quickly take a seat. Allow me to introduce everyone; this is the decision maker of the Qin family. You can address her as Aunt Qin. This is whom you had previously asked Grandma about, Young Master Qin Huailing. I believe you have already met him several times before; this is your uncle, Shen Wenqi... You should already know the rest of your peers, so I will not introduce them one by one."
Hearing Old Lady Shen's words, Yun Bixue scorned but still greeted her seniors in succession. In response, everyone spared no compliments on her beauty and consideration.
When Yun Bixue took notice of Qin Huailing, her gaze shuddered. This ethereal charmer appeared to be only about twenty years old.
