Ye Jiu and Wan Xiang looked at each other and smiled as they continued to work.
At the request of Old Madam Chu, Ye Jiu ate her lunch at Old Madam Chu’s place.
After drinking some soup, Old Madam Chu looked in Ye Jiu’s direction.
Ye Jiu felt Old madam Chu’s gaze and put down her spoon as well. She looked back at her.
“Doctor Mu came in the morning.” Old Madam Chu turned to ask Ye Jiu, “How did you come up with the idea to make me do a checkup?”
Ye Jiu was stunned for a moment, then she said, “This old lady that I knew also had symptoms of sleepiness…”
“Her family didn’t take it seriously until…” Ye Jiu said and paused. “It was already too late when they sent her to the hospital…”
Hearing Ye Jiu’s words, Old Madam Chu nodded in understanding.
In fact, the old lady that Ye Jiu mentioned was none other than old Madam Chu in her previous life…
Ever since Ye Jiu came to the Chu family, she had no one close to her…
In her previous life, although she held grudges against her, Old Madam Chu had always treated her with tolerance.
No matter how much she went overboard, Old Madam Chu would only scold her verbally, but behind her back, she would do everything she could to protect her.
She knew that Old Madam Chu pitied her…
“If it weren’t for you…” Old Madam Chu shook her head and smiled bitterly. “Uncle Wang is the same. He always does useless examinations!”
Ye Jiu smiled and did not reply.
Uncle Wang would arrange for Old Madam Chu to have a physical examination every year.
In fact, he would remind the servants to pay attention to Old Madam Chu’s diet every time, and he would also suggest dietary treatments.
However, Old Madam Chu always found Uncle Wang’s prescriptions unpleasant and troublesome, and she was always stubborn and disobedient.
The servants in the house could not dissuade old Madam Chu, so they could only change her diet to improve her health.
The chefs in Old Madam Chu’s house were probably worried that Old Madam Chu would dislike the vegetarian dishes if they tasted too bland.
Therefore, although Old Madam Chu ate vegetarian dishes every day, the amount of oil and salt did not decrease too much…
“If Grandma likes sweet things, why don’t you ask Nanny Li to make more vegetarian desserts? It’s better than eating those candies…” Ye Jiu carefully exposed old madam Chu’s “bad habit”.
Old Madam Chu immediately frowned and looked a little dissatisfied.
“You little girl, you have nothing to do these days. How dare you nag at me!” Old Madam Chu said angrily.
Nanny Li stood at the side. She wanted to laugh but did not dare to. She could only help and say, “Old Madam, are you complaining that my cooking skills are not good?”
“My pastries are not as good as those candies?” Nanny Li looked at Old Madam Chu with some grievance.
Old Madam Chu waved her hand and said, “Alright, Alright! Stop singing along with me!”
“I’ll listen to you guys!” Old Madam Chu said and could not help but laugh.
She naturally knew that Ye Jiu and Nanny Li were “working together” for her own good.
The meal ended in a harmonious atmosphere.
In the afternoon, while Old Madam Chu was taking a nap, Ye Jiu decided to have a chat with Sun Jing.
“Auntie Sun…” Sun Jing’s room was not closed. Ye Jiu stood outside and knocked on the door.
“Come in!” Sun Jing did not stop what she was doing and continued to type.
Ye Jiu walked into the room and sat down on a chair made of bamboo vines.
After sitting for a while, Sun Jing finally finished her work.
She walked to Ye Jiu and said, “Sorry to keep you waiting.”
Ye Jiu shook her head and pointed at the teacup in front of her. She said apologetically, “I didn’t ask for you just now and I ended up troubling Xiao Mu to prepare some tea.”
Sun Jing smiled and said, “I can’t take care of anything when I’m busy… It’s good that you’re like this…”
Seeing that Sun Jing did not blame her, Ye Jiu smiled even more happily.
“Actually, I came to find you to ask about the bracelet…” Ye Jiu lowered her voice and said.
Sun Jing hesitated for a moment and then nodded. “I should let you know too…”
Ye Jiu returned to her room and sat on the sofa in a daze.
From Sun Jing, Ye Jiu knew the origin of the bracelet.
The bracelet was originally one of Old Madam Chu’s dowry.
When Chu Xi was born, Old Madam Chu gave the bracelet to her eldest son and grandson.
To the old people who had traditional beliefs, the eldest grandson was always special!
After Chu Xi and Lin Ying were engaged, the bracelet was given to Lin Ying as a token.
However, Chu Xi’s body was weak, and the doctor determined that he would not live past 30 years old…
Old Madam Chu felt sorry for her grandson, but she had no other choice…
Later on, the Lin family came to break off the engagement, and they even returned the bracelet.
Although Lin Ying was staying at the Chu family every day, the bracelet would never be given to her again!
When Chu Xi left the Chu family to recuperate abroad, he personally went in front of Old Madam Chu and handed the bracelet back to her.
Old Madam Chu also knew what Chu Xi was thinking…
She took the bracelet back. The bracelet was just a dowry for her. There was no other meaning behind it!
Although the matter of Chu Xi’s engagement being annulled caused a stir, only the Chu family and the Lin family knew about the bracelet.
After all, it was a thorn stuck in her throat…
Since Ye Jiu mentioned it, Old Madam Chu decided to sell the bracelet to gain some merit for Chu Xi.
