Season 13


( Young Master Huo’s Big Wedding (6)

Thank goodness the Maybach was spacious enough…

She knelt in front of Huo Mian. “Cousin Mian, I’m sorry for stealing Auntie’s jewelry.”

“Why did you do it?” Huo Mian glanced at her icily.

“I… I was an idiot… Auntie had so many but barely wore them, so I thought I might as well trade them in for a ring.”

“Haha… are you saying that you have the right to take something for yourself, as long as the owner doesn’t use it?” Huo Mian had never met someone who would find excuses for stealing.

“No, I was an idiot. Cousin Mian, I’m sorry, I know what I did was wrong. Please don’t call the police. I don’t want to go to jail, I’m still young, jail will ruin my life…”

“Imagine how sad my mom will be if she found out what happened… I can’t believe she invited you into her home.” Huo Mian looked at Yang Xiuping with slight disappointment.

Yang Xiuping was her mother’s niece, but she was still capable of doing something as despicable as theft.

“Cousin Mian, please don’t tell Auntie, she’ll be really sad. She’s treated me well, I don’t want her to be disappointed in me…”

“What were you thinking when you stole her jewelry?”

“I… I was possessed by my greed… I didn’t want to be poor anymore… I grew up in the mountains and never owned anything nice. Ever since I came to the city, I noticed that you guys all lived in tall buildings, ate good food, wore expensive clothes, and used high-end things… I’m really jealous… Cousin Mian, each of your bags cost hundreds of thousands of yuan. It’s more than I would ever earn my entire life.”

“You shouldn’t take things for granted. If you want something, you must invest an equal amount of effort to get it. You can’t reap where one has not sown and wait for meatballs to fall out of the sky. All you see is my luxurious life, but you weren’t there when my life was on the line. Do you have any idea what I’ve been through?”

Yang Xiuping looked down in silence upon hearing this…

“You can’t use poor as an excuse… Theft is a character issue.”

“I know, Cousin Mian, I know what I did was wrong. I won’t ever do it again… Please don’t arrest me, okay?”

Yang Xiuping reached out to grab Huo Mian’s arm as she begged her, again and again.

Huo Mian could tell she was really scared, but…

“If you had known things would come to this, why did you steal in the first place?”

Huo Mian didn’t feel bad for Yang Xiuping at all, since her apology was too little too late.

If Huo Mian didn’t force Yang Xiuping into confessing, the latter would’ve thought what she did was smart and would keep denying her cousin’s accusations.

But Huo Mian saw through Yang Xiuping’s tactics almost immediately; there were just too many loopholes.

Huo Mian didn’t expose Yang Xiuping in front of her mother not to save face for her cousin.

Rather, it was because Yang Meirong had high blood pressure and heart conditions; her health might take a toll had she realized her favorite niece stole from her…

“Get up, I won’t call the police.”

“Really?” Yang Xiuping was elated. Then, she immediately got up and instinctively brushed the dirt off her knees, as if she was out of the woods…

“But…” Huo Mian added, and Yang Xiuping’s hands froze for a second as she looked up at Huo Mian.

“But I have two conditions you have to fulfill.”

“Tell me, Cousin Mian, I’ll do anything, as long as you don’t send me to prison,” Yang Xiuping said, scared out of wits.

“First, take this ring to the shop and trade back my mother’s jewelry. Then, quietly put them back… If she asks, tell her you found them somewhere in the house. She’ll believe you.”

“Okay…” Although she didn’t want to part with her diamond ring, Yang Xiuping was even more scared of Huo Mian calling the police. Therefore, she immediately agreed.

“Second… After you do that, you will find an excuse to leave my house. I don’t care where you go, back to the village or somewhere else, but… you can’t continue living here, you’ve got to go.”

“Cousin Mian… I know what I did was wrong, please give me another chance, okay?”

Yang Xiuping obviously didn’t want to leave…

She had a place to eat and live. With barely had any work to do, she even earned 3,000 yuan every month, so of course she didn’t want to leave.

At Yang Meirong’s house, she basically lived the life of a rich socialite, which was perfect for her lazy personality.
