I’m Pregnant with the Villain’s Child - chapter 169
The relationships between mother-in-laws and daughter-in-laws were usually complicated since ancient times . However, Mother Lu treated her very well . She didn’t want Lu Beichuan to neglect his mother because he had gotten married . That would hurt Mother Lu’s feelings .
“Don’t worry . I prepared a gift for mom too . ”
“That’s good . ”
Ye Zhen’s sweet smile made Lu Beichuan feel as if he was walking on clouds, but he maintained a lofty cold look . He secretly decided to keep searching for things that his wife would like . He would give them to her as Valentine’s Day presents, wedding anniversary presents, birthday gifts, etc .
“Alright, let’s go inside first . ”
While indifferently striding back into the villa, Lu Beichuan held Ye Zhen’s hand and the corners of his lips instinctively curved up .
Ye Zhen’s blood jade bracelet was a unique attraction . As they were walking to the side hall, many of the guests’ gazes were attracted to her snow-white wrist .
The married ladies in the villa’s side hall saw Ye Zhen coming into the hall and immediately noticed the blood jade bracelet that she was wearing . However, the people here had seen a great deal in their lives and stunned surprise wasn’t something that was allowed to exist on their faces . None of their expressions changed as they silently observed .
It was Mrs . Lu, who asked in surprise after seeing the jade bracelet that Ye Zhen was wearing, “Zhenzhen, this is . . . ”
Ye Zhe smiled . “Beichuan gave this to me . ”
As soon as Mrs . Lu heard that it was a gift from Beichuan, she pretended to be angry by saying, “Very good, everyone look, Beichuan has forgotten his mom now that he has a wife . When Beichuan buys something for his wife, he doesn’t even think to get something for his mom while he’s at it . ”
Ye Zhen quickly smiled and said, “That’s perfect then . Since mom likes this jade bracelet, I’ll give this jade bracelet to mom . Anyways, Beichuan has prepared a gift for mom too . We’ll just switch presents . ”
She started to pull the blood jade bracelet off her wrist .
Mother Lu smiled as she poked Ye Zhen’s forehead . “You sly girl . How could such an eye-catching color be suitable for a woman of my age? You’re making a joke at mom’s expense . ”
“How would I be able to? Mom, you’re so young . When we go out shopping, the store employees are sure to mistake us as sisters . ”
One of the married ladies teased, “You have such a sweet-talking daughter-in-law and such a cute grandson . How enviable . ”
Mrs . Lu only pursed her lips into a smile and didn’t say anything .
“Zhenzhen, your bracelet is made from blood jade, right? I remember that blood jade of that quality is very rare . I like to collect jade too . I’ve bought a lot, but I haven’t been able to acquire a piece of blood jade . For Beichuan to buy a piece and one of such good quality, he must have put in a lot of effort . . ”
“Is blood jade that precious?”
“Of course, something that has high demand but limited supply will always be valuable . Beichuan is truly very attentive .
Ye Zhen smiled . She didn’t feign humbleness . She carefully stroked her blood jade bracelet and said, “Yeah, Beichuan is truly very thoughtful . ”
Her heart wasn’t made of stone . Regardless of Lu Beichuan’s original intention and purpose, she couldn’t find any fault with how well he had treated her during this period of time .
The sounds of laughter and congratulations in the villa lasted from the afternoon to dusk . Zhouzhou’s lively first lunar month birthday celebration finally came to an end when the sky had turned dark .
At the end of the celebration, Lu Beichuan stood outside the front doors to send off the guests while the servants tidied up the villa .
When Lu Beichuan turned around to go back to the villa, the older butler was standing in the doorway .
The older butler slightly bowed . With a solemn expression, he said, “Young Master, Old Master is requesting that you go to his study . ”
The old butler’s tone was outside of Lu Beichuan’s expectations . “What happened?”
The old butler slightly shook his head . “You’ll know once you go there . ”
Lu Beichuan walked upstairs to the study .
At this moment, the rest of Lu’s were already gathered there .
