In the Imperial Capital, there were influential officials everywhere. At its best, the Lin family was a second-rate family. The families present today were more or less of the same standing as the Lin family.
They considered themselves to be extremely important and looked down on this and that. However, when they encounter people who were truly identifiable, they were the first to be frightened.
If it were not for Old Master Lin, Lin Wanwan would have really been annoyed with such an occasion.
Lin Siqing smiled and said, “Wanwan, why did you come over empty-handed? Haven’t you prepared a gift for Grandpa?”
Lin Wanwan looked at her and saw the glimmer of cold light in her eyes. She was disinterested.
Senseless. Hadn’t she said enough?
“I did. It’s arriving in a while.”
Since Lu Zhanbei had promised her, he would definitely get it settled.
Lin Siqing covered her mouth and laughed. “It looks like you will be giving us a big surprise. I’m very much looking forward to it. After all, you personally told us three days ago that you would prepare a birthday gift that would shock all of us. I trust you would live up to our expectations.”
She deliberately raised her voice. These words clearly reached the ears of everyone and caused a commotion.
Upon hearing this, Lin Wanwan did not say yes or no.
She knew very clearly Lin Siqing’s intentions. She had wanted to raise Lin Wanwan up high so that if her birthday gift turned out to be not very good, everyone would attack her.
It had only been a few days since she’d seen her. This little slut was getting more adept at scheming.
Seeing that Lin Wanwan ignored her, Lin Siqing clenched her fists tightly by her side. She looked towards Jiang Jiyue, who was next to her, and said in a gentle voice, “Let’s take out the gift we have prepared for Grandpa.”
Jiang Jiyue waved his hand and took out a rectangular gift box from the exquisite gift bag handed over by the waiter.
Lin Siqing received it and presented it to Old Master Lin with both hands. Respectful words could be clearly heard.
“Grandpa, this is the birthday gift Jiyue and I are giving you. May your happiness be as immense as the East Sea, and may you live as long as the Zhongnan Mountains.”
Upon hearing this, many guests cast curious gazes over.
Without waiting for Old Master Lin to receive it, Matriarch Lin had already snatched the box over and rapidly opened it.
When she saw what was inside, she was so shocked that her hands trembled slightly.
Seeing her look of agitation, a few gossipers came together and leaned over. They saw a pair of jade bracelets and a pair of jade earrings lying in the box.
This jade was of a green so pure that it was without any impurities. People in the know immediately pointed out the origins of this jade and exclaimed, “This is emerald green imperial jade!”
Emerald green imperial jade
This was the most expensive jade with the best quality. Even a small piece would cost an exorbitant amount.
Lin Siqing had actually given him a whole pair of jade bracelets and earrings!
A conservative cost estimate of these two items would be more than 30 million yuan.
Even though most of the people present were not lacking money, they could not help but feel shocked when they saw Lin Siqing produce emerald green imperial jade worth over tens of millions of yuan.
Matriarch Lin was so excited that she beamed with delight. She pulled Lin Siqing’s hand over. As she patted it, she complimented, “You’re indeed Grandma’s best granddaughter. I haven’t doted on you for nothing!”
Even a fool could tell that although Lin Siqing was celebrating Old Master Lin’s birthday on the surface, the gift was obviously prepared for Matriarch Lin.
Everyone clearly knew about this but pretended not to know. Everyone had on a look of appreciation.
“Big Miss had really gone to a great length. Her filial piety towards her grandpa and grandma is so touching!”
“Striking with emerald green imperial jade accessories at once. I would be satisfied if my daughter were half as sensible as Big Miss.”
