(A Ring In The Grass (10)

Qin Zhi’ai balanced her body, frowning, and looking down carelessly out of pure curiosity. Then she fixed her eyes on the grass.

A sky blue gift box was lying on the lawn that had been mowed a few days earlier.

Although the gift box was slightly dirty from the rain, it was still obvious that it was a brand new gift that must have been bought recently.

Qin Zhi’ai squatted down, freeing a hand, and picked up the gift box, taking it in the palm of her hand to measure it with her eyes. Then, without thinking too much, she opened the gift box.

A delicate and sparkling diamond ring came directly into her view.

The perfect cuts of the diamond sparkled brightly under the sun. Its glow was so dazzling that she had to squint her eyes to clearly see the style of the diamond.

The diamond was pink, heart-shaped, and as big as a pigeon’s egg. The style of the ring was simple but elegant. The diamond sparkled brightly with a breath-taking pink glow. No matter who saw it, their heart would be filled with pure surprise and excitement.

Qin Zhi’ai knew the logo on that gift box. Even if one bought the most common style of that brand of diamond ring, the price would be staggering, not to mention a custom design like this one. Besides the egg-sized diamond, the ring was also surrounded by a lot of smaller diamonds, thus the price must have been too expensive to imagine.

While she continued to wander, Qin Zhi’ai picked up the diamond ring from the gift box, held it up in front of her, and observed it carefully.

Except for Gu Yusheng, she and the housekeeper were the only ones left in this villa. If she had been the real Liang Doukou, she could have still afforded it. However, both she and the housekeeper were in debt, and even the sum of their lifetime earnings couldn’t pay for this diamond ring. So it must have been Gu Yusheng…

Before Qin Zhi’ai had finished considering who would buy it, she saw the words carved on the ring: ” little troublemaker.”

Little troublemaker?

Gu Yusheng always liked to call her that.

So, as she had thought, he had not only bought the ring, but he had bought it for his little troublemaker?

And it was because of her that he called Liang Doukou little troublemaker.

The blood in Qin Zhi’ai’s whole body seemed to coagulate in an instant.

The previous afternoon, before he had left the bedroom, she thought she had seen him throwing something out of the window.

She was so tired at that time that she had thought she was hallucinating.

Subconsciously, Qin Zhi’ai turned her head, looking to the second floor. The place where she was standing at this moment was facing the main bedroom window.

Her brain was suddenly blank. This time, not only did her blood seem to coagulate, but her heart and breathing stopped for an instant. The flowers in her hands fell out of her grasp and sprinkled on the ground.

After taking a nap and preparing lunch, the housekeeper went upstairs and looked for Qin Zhi’ai everywhere without seeing her. The housekeeper went out of the house, looking for Qin Zhi’ai everywhere from the front yard to the back yard, only to see that Qin Zhi’ai was standing stiffly on the back lawn, illuminated by the sun.

At noon in early autumn, the sun was still a little hot. Only when the housekeeper approached did she see clearly that Qin Zhi’ai’s little face was sunburned, and sweat was rolling down her cheeks.

The housekeeper hurried up to her. “Ma’am? You’re not well yet. Why are you standing here?”

Qin Zhi’ai was immersed in her own world, not noticing that the housekeeper was approaching or hearing her words. She was holding the ring, her eyes fixed on it.

“Ma’am?” The housekeeper gently shook Qin Zhi’ai’s arm.
