The woman’s words seemed to be targeted at Yun Bixue.
Yun Bixue looked at her and frowned slightly. She couldn’t recognize the person, but it felt like her words were filled with jealousy and malicious intent.
In Ning An City, there was no need to pick a fight with someone just because of a few words.
Yun Bixue replied calmly, “Since you’re the boss of Star’s Fate Jewelry, you know so much about this. I guess your husband has given you a ring. Is that why you have this sentiment? I wonder what your ring’s design is? Maybe I can use it as a reference.”
Hearing Yun Bixue’s rebuttal, the woman’s expression changed. She forced a smile and said stiffly, “That is of no concern to Miss Yun. After all, you’re the customer, while I’m the boss. I just have to serve you well. I look forward to your next visit.”
Yun Bixue noticed the stiff expression on the woman’s face and her eyes narrowed slightly, emitting a dangerous look. Without a word, she turned and left.
As soon as she stepped outside, the salesladies erupted into chatter.
“Was that really Miss Yun, Young Master Xie’s wife? She didn’t look like it. Wasn’t it said that she was adored? Why doesn’t she have a ring?”
“You can’t just trust those rumors. She’s not wearing a ring and came to look at them herself without Young Master Xie’s company. What does that say?”
“That Young Master Xie is just playing with her and that others have a chance as well?”
“We can’t just say that, but without a marriage and a ring, not even a ceremony, it feels like she’s not treasured.”
“You have a point. What is the Yun family in front of Young Master Xie’s eyes? Those things, like she was a treasure in Young Master Xie’s eyes, were probably just staged press releases.”
“Boss Jiang, take it easy. From what I can see, Young Master Xie is trying to protect his political image. He might not really adore his wife.”
Yun Bixue just stepped out of the jewelry shop and was standing near the entrance, so she could hear the conversation inside very clearly. Even though she told herself not to mind it, she still felt fury rising within her.
She couldn’t stand it when others badmouth Xie Limo. No matter how he treated her, they had no right to question him.
Furthermore, from the conversation, the woman in black’s surname was Jiang. Was she from the Jiang family in Tian Jing City? The Jiang family was the backer of the Xu family, so why were its members here at Ning An City?
She had a string of questions she wanted to ask, but she didn’t have answers to them, so she simply lowered her head and looked at her empty ring finger. After a moment, she quickly shook her head and walked away.
Jiang Jingshan stared at Yun Bixue’s departing figure and sank into deep thought. Somehow, just by looking at her, disgust would well up within her. It felt as though she had forgotten about something, but even when she thought about it carefully, she couldn’t remember anything.
She had never met Young Master Xie before, but she felt that Yun Bixue was not that fantastic. With the power Young Master Xie held, how could he fall in love with such a woman?
Jiang Jingshan was overconfident. Perhaps it was her overconfidence that caused the demise of the Jiang family.
“You can come out now. She left already.”
The moment she finished speaking, Xu Miaodan walked out from the side door. She removed her sunglasses and nodded respectfully towards Jiang Jingshan. “Thank you, Boss Jiang.”
“There’s no need to be so polite. The Xu family is under the protection of the Jiang family, and that includes you. What is there about this Yun Bixue that makes you waste so much of your effort?”
Xu Miaodan’s beautiful lips tilted up into a smirk and said, “It’s not that I want to waste my effort. Someone has something against her, so I’m just using her to vent my anger.”
Jiang Jingshan furrowed her brows and adjusted her earring. “I won’t ask too much about your personal matters, but you need to make sure that it won’t hurt the Xu family’s reputation, especially the Jiang family.”
