Chapter 1243: Young Master Huo’s Big Wedding 4

'No, I don't go out that often…" Yang Xiuping began to panic as if she had something to hide.

Huo Mian raised an eyebrow. "Oh, yeah? When I was watching the surveillance footage on my phone just now, I noticed that recently, you've been leaving early and coming home late. I thought you got yourself a boyfriend."

"No, I… sometimes I leave the house in the morning to buy groceries and then walk around the city during the day," Yang Xiuping continued denying Huo Mian's accusations.

The truth was, Huo Mian didn't really watch the surveillance footage. She just mentioned it randomly to test out Yang Xiuping's reaction.

However, the latter immediately got antsy, proving that she wasn't mature enough and panicked at the first sign of crisis…

"Oh… don't worry, you don't have to be nervous, I was just asking." Huo Mian smiled.

She and Qin Chu already had some noodles at Ah-Xin's Ramen, so neither of them was hungry.

Just now, Huo Mian asked her mother to make them some beef patties so she could ask Yang Xiuping some questions alone.

After a quick bite, Huo Mian and Qin Chu got up to leave…

Huo Mian held her mother's hands and comforted her, "Mom, don't worry about the jewelry, I'll buy you some more. They're not worth getting angry over."

"Mhm, it's okay, I don't have to wear them. Don't buy me any replacements, I'm not a big fan of jewelry anyways."

"I know." Huo Mian smiled. While she was heading out, she tilted her head and glanced at Yang Xiuping. "Xiuping, come out with me."

"Oh, okay." Yang Xiuping froze for a second. Then, she headed out the door with Huo Mian with a confused expression on her face.

"Honey… I need to mail Zhixin some of his things. Can you go to his room with Mom and get them, so I can mail them out tomorrow?"

"Sure." Qin Chu knew what Huo Mian wanted to do, so he went up to Zhixin's room with his mother-in-law without another word.

After Huo Mian walked out with Yang Xiuping, she unlocked the doors of the Maybach and got onto the back seat. Then, she patted the seat beside her. "It's cold outside, let's talk in here."

"Okay." Yang Xiuping nodded. Then, she got onto the backseat and sat down beside Huo Mian.

"Xiuping, how… do you think my mother treats you?" Huo Mian asked gently.

"Auntie treats me very well."

"What about me, how do you think I treat you?"

"You treat me like family, Cousin Mian." Yang Xiuping was a little scared of Huo Mian, so she acted reserved in front of her and wore an unnatural expression on her face.

"Since we treat you well, how can you have the audacity to steal my mom's jewelry?"

Huo Mian asked this question extremely calmly, but Yang Xiuping felt like her head was about to explode…

When they were inside just now, Yang Xiuping thought Huo Mian was going to let this incident slide; they were so rich, so why would they freak out over losing some jewelry that was worth no more than twenty or thirty-thousand yuan?


This was why Yang Xiuping decided to steal jewelry rather than money.

Back then, she thought that since Yang Meirong didn't look in her jewelry box very often, it would be a long time before she noticed that whatever was inside had disappeared.

By then, she would've spent all the money she got from the jewelry, and no one would be able to directly accuse her of theft.

Therefore, she was shocked that Huo Mian was so sure that she was the one who stole them.

She thought her cousin was only suspicious of her, but she wouldn't have the guts to openly hold her accountable.

"Cousin… Mian, are you joking?" Yang Xiuping's smile was really ugly, and Huo Mian looked into her eyes. "No, I'm completely serious."

"Cousin Mian, I really don't know what you're talking about." Yang Xiuping tried her best to maintain her composure while playing dumb.
