The Dowager Lady's shrewd eyes narrowed. When Gu Hua's and Gu Ming's mother died when they were young, and she was not their directly related grandmother. Her youthful son and daughter are also not exactly Gu Hua's and Gu Ming's uncle and aunt. If Gu Hua sues her and her children for conspiring to take their private assets, outsiders will definitely believe them.
"Qingyan, go home and bring back all the jewellery you have taken." The dowry in the treasury are all valuable items and she had been eyeing them for a long time and had been prepared to split them evenly between her Ye'er and Rou'er. However, these things have to be done quietly and can definitely not let outsiders know about it.
"Grandmother!" Song Qingyan looked at Wu, teary. Those pieces of jewelry were very delicate and beautiful, and she liked them very much. She didn't want to return even a single item. Grandmother can't help her fight for it?
"What now? You don't listen to me anymore? Quickly go back and return the jewellery." Wu 's face darkened. Returning the jewellery now is to pacify Gu Hua so that she will not pursue this issue. When Gu Hua lets her guard down, she will slowly scheme and swallow all the dowry in that entire treasury.
Looking at her strict expression, Song Qingyan froze and pitifulness accumulated in her eyes. Grandmother actually reprimanded her because of Gu Hua, how hateful! "Humph!" Song Qingyan stamped her feet and ran out wiping her tears.
"My mother's dowry is registered in the bureau. Any jewellery lost will be written on the list. I hope that when Cousin Qingyan returns the items, they are all real and not mixed in with fake items to hoodwink me."
The cold caution rang out and Song Qingyan paused, turned towards Gu Hua, gritting her teeth, "Don't worry cousin. Yan'er is also the first wife's daughter of the General's Mansion. I have countless jewellery, it is not worth it to steal such a bit."
"That's great then!" Gu Hua casually replied, obviously not believing her.
Song Qingyan choked, anger stuck in her chest, unable to get out. She hatefully glared at Gu Hua and furiously walked out. Originally, she really had planned to casually return two boxes of jewellery to hoodwink Gu Hua. She didn't expect that Gu Hua would uncover her ploy and now she must return the real and beautiful jewellery. How very hateful!
Gu Hua then remind Wu to tell Gu Panpan and Gu Yiyi to return the item as well.
Wu's lips moved and she was just about to teach them a lesson when Gu Hua spoke up first, "Since Cousin Qingyan and other two will need at least two hours before they can return the jewellery, Hong Qi, lock the treasury first and bring the key over."
"Yes, ma'am!" Hong Qiu curtsied and locked the treasury door before putting the key in Gu Hua's hands. Gu Hua planned to personally oversee the treasury.
Wu's eyes flashed and she loudly said, "Nobles in the Capital always pass the key to their personal maids to manage. As a noble lady, you actually want to personally manage these material goods. Are you not afraid of becoming a laughing stock"
"I don't have any old maids that I can trust so I can only personally keep the key. When I find someone I can trust, I will naturally pass the key to her. Grandmother need not worry." Gu Hua slowly said, rebuking her words.
Wu choked and a dark haze flashed beneath her eyes, looking at her retreating back. If the treasury key is in Gu Hua's hands, she wouldn't be able to find a chance to swallow the dowry within at all.
