Tang Xinyue started to think. What could she possibly do to amend the situation?
Not long before now, Fan Lingxin would give the necklace to Qin Huiying, and she would be berated for being unthoughtful.
Tang Xinyue displayed an awkward smile as she tried her hardest to think of a solution. All she could think of was to delay Fan Lingxin giving her gift, and not bring up the topic.
"How do I look?"
Qin Huiying showed off her new earrings. Her friends all said they were jealous in good jest, except for one.
Mrs. Tang glared at the earrings that her daughter gave Mrs. Li. She was envious of the gift.
But she reassured herself. Right now, Tang Xinyue's image is getting higher in the eyes of Qin Huiying. When the time comes, I will suggest for his son to divorce that bitch and marry my daughter.
Oh, speaking of gifts, where is Fan Lingxin's?
Mrs. Tang sneered inside as she spoke.
"Ms. Fan, where is your gift?"
Qin Huiying stopped talking and also looked at Fan Lingxin. All of the people in the room's attention were on her.
She smiled and put her left hand on the table. A box came with it.
"Mother, here is my gift to you." She gave it to Qin Huiying, who was skeptical about her present.
Tang Xinyue panicked. Why this... this idiot mother of mine!
Just as Qin Huiying was about to open the box, Tang Xinyue abruptly stood up.
"What's wrong, Xinyue?" Qin Huiying was concerned.
"I... I will admit it now. Actually, Fan Lingxin was the one who bought the earrings, while I am the one who bought that..." Tang Xinyue confessed with a lowered head.
Fan Lingxin interrupted her. "But Sister Xinyue-"
"Shush, Lingxin... Don't implicate yourself into my mistakes.
"So, these earrings are from you?" Qin Huiying scoffed.
Looking at Tang Xinyue who had "play along" written on her face, she eventually nodded. "Yes."
"Well, thank you." Although she disliked Fan Lingxin, she had to admit, these earrings did look nice on her.
Fan Lingxin's eyes sparkled. Ever since she first met her mother-in-law, she never got any words of appreciation from her. Naturally, hearing Qin Huiying thank her for the gift delighted her.
After that, Qin Huiying opened the box.
Inside was a pendant.
She pulled it out with a touched face.
"Oh...! Xinyue, you are so thoughtful!"
Seeing the content of the box, Tang Xinyue's eyes widened. This wasn't a just necklace, it was one with a pendant!
It was completely different from her past life.
She whispered to Fan Lingxin's ear. "Where is the necklace?"
With a clueless face, Fan Lingxin responded, "Li Xia took it, and gave me this last night."
Last night? Why did he give this to her last night?
What changed in the events last night... I confessed to him that it was me who drugged him.
That means, he prepared another gift so Fan Lingxin wouldn't give the gift I prepared for her.
