Gu Hua followed the blue stone path and leisurely walked. From far she heard laughter like tinkling bells. She raised her eyebrows and followed the sound toward the courtyard. Stepping into the courtyard, she saw a group of maids and housekeepers standing in front of treasury room. Each of them held a delicate ebony wood box. In the boxes were sapphire hairpin, ruby earrings, jasper bangles and other varieties of dedicate jewelry, each one of them extremely valuable. A young girl in pink skirt was fluttering here and there between the dedicate jewelry, wearing this and that. Her smile was brighter that the flowers. Upon noticing Gu Hua standing at the entrance the maids and housekeepers turned around and casually bowed, "Young Mistress" Except the girl in pink, every single person of general's household has became well aware about the drastic change happen in Gu Hua's character, also how she has deal with everything that recently happened. So now no one dare to be disrespectful toward her. Gu Hua smirked and slowly walked toward them and said, "Cousin what are you doing here?" Upon hearing the cold voice the girl in pink, Song Qingyan followed the direction of their glances and saw Gu Hua. She her a glance and carelessly said," Cousin grandmother saw that I was wearing too plainly so she has decided to gift me some aunt's jewelry and is letting me choose." Song Qingyan is the wife-born eldest daughter of Wu An Gu's household and is Gu Rou's only daughter. Thus she was extremely pampered by the Gu's dowager. Every time she visited to the mansion, she would dress plainly and when she goes back, she would be well adorned and full of dedicate jewelry. Gu Hua sneered internally and slowly said," If grandmother is gifting you things, you should be picking from grandmother's treasury. Why are you picking from my mother's dowry " Song Qingyan froze midway while wearing an earring and frowned. Previously, when she has visited the mansion, she had always taken jewelry from here and Gu Hua never said anything. Today, she actually mercilessly questioned her, what's wrong with her. "Your mother is my aunt. It's not too much for her to gift me a few pieces of jewelry right" "If my mother had personally said that she's giving it to you, that's call gifting. Taking the jewelry without my mother's permission is called thieving and robbing. On the last few words, Gu Hua's voice grew heavy and her tone was merciless sneering. Song Qingyan reddened and glared at her, "Your mother has been dead for so many years, how am I supposed to speak to her Gu Hua, enough is enough, don't be too much." Gu Hua's face darkened and coldly said, "My mother's jewelry is being stolen by others. I've only asked a question and that's considered too much. Then isn't it worse that you as a noble's daughter is stooping to steal others jewelry" "I am not stealing anything," Song Qingyan said fiercely, "I took the key and opened the lock and openly took out the jewerly." Gu Hua's mouth curled slightly she was just waiting for her to say that " Who is the keeper of the treasury keys" The servant lowered their heads, silent, but whether intentionally, their eyes caste glances to the side. The thirty plus year old maid stood out again, a look of surprise appeared. She can't understand why Gu Hua is asking same question again, a complicated expression flitted pass her face. It was after a while before she said "It's me" "Somebody, darg her away and hit her a hundred times with the paddles then sell her" Gu Hua ordered harshly. The old maid was shocked and shouted in surprise," Young Mistress, what have I done wrong."
