“Young lady, are you from around here? 1 don’t think I’ve seen you before,” Gao Lin asked.

There were not many people who could manage to survive in this country after coming from their home country and most of them were familiar with one another. If any family had such a beautiful daughter, they would have long bragged about it and would not have kept it a secret until now.

“We’re not from here. We’re here for a holiday,” Qiao Mei replied honestly.

“Then you’d better leave tomorrow. That person just now… he’s a very dangerous man! You must leave town as soon as possible! Otherwise, he’ll come looking for you! He’s probably investigating your background at this moment!” Gao Lin said nervously.

Xia He looked at Gao Lin in shock. They were just here for a holiday. How could they have encountered a baddie just like that? If she had known earlier, she would not have allowed Qiao Mei to buy this set of jewelry!

“Perhaps you shouldn’t buy it…” Xia He tugged at the corner of Qiao Mei’s top and whispered to her.

“It’s fine. Since I have already bought it, I’m not afraid that he will come looking for me,” Qiao Mei said firmly.

“It’s really not worth it to offend the richest man in Sky City for these few pieces of jewelry. I have also asked around just now and found out that that person is not to be trifled with!” Xia He said.

“That’s right, young lady. Your friend is right, but 1 really need the money. My grandson is still waiting for treatment in the hospital. If you really don’t want to keep the jewelry, you can sell it to Zhang Cheng! You can even ask for 10 million! He will definitely give it to you!” Gao Lin said determinedly.

He had already sold the jewelry to Qiao Mei. If it eventually ended up in Zhang Chengs hands, then that meant it was fated to be. However, Gao Lin would feel better if it happened this way. Qiao Mei selling the jewelry to Zhang Cheng was different from him doing it. He did not want to let down his elder sister.

“If I say that the jewelry is going to be my family heirloom, then it will definitely be my family heirloom. Don’t worry, Grandpa Gao,” Qiao Mei said seriously as she looked into Gao Lin’s eyes.

“Thank you… Thank you all…” Gao Lin said, feeling touched.

After hesitating for a while, Qiao Mei asked, “Grandpa Gao, can I ask for your sister’s name?”

“l don’t mind telling you. Her name is Gao Tao. The reason why Zhang Cheng is so insistent on buying this set of jewelry is because he used to be my sister’s fiancé,” Gao Lin said with a sigh.

Qiao Mei had really guessed correctly. The person in front of her was her grandmother’s biological younger brother, and that Zhang Cheng was the man who hurt her grandmother back then and almost caused her to lose her life in the fire.

“Goodbye, Grandpa Gao. Have a safe trip. Your grandson will be fine,” Qiao Mei said.

“Thank you.” After saying that, Gao Lin drove to the bank to cash out the check from Qiao Mei. After that, he looked at the money bag on the front passenger seat and started to cry.

He did not expect the Gao family to be in such dire straits by the time he was the head of the family. If he had discovered Zhang Chengs plan earlier, the Gao family might still have a chance of getting through this. Perhaps the Gao family might still be the richest family in Sky City now and his grandson would not be seriously ill in the hospital.

Unfortunately… this could only be a part of his imagination.

Sitting in the car on the way back, Qiao Mei hugged her bag with a great deal of satisfaction, but Xia He was not feeling so calm. Her mind was filled with what Gao Lin had just said. What should she do if Zhang Cheng really wanted to target them? If he found out about the small town where they lived, the three children might be in danger!

“Why do you insist on buying this set of jewelry? What’s so special about it?” Xia He asked with a frown.

“l like it a lot. Besides, there are many stories about this set of jewelry. I’ll tell you about it later,” Qiao Mei said.

Qiao Mei definitely could not tell Xia He that this set of jewelry possessed superpowers. Even Xia Zhe did not know about this. When it was time to reveal the truth, she would just tell Xia He that this set of jewelry used to belong to her grandmother.

They did not return to the villa where they stayed earlier. Qiao Mei brought Xia He to a property near Xia Zhe’s office. Although the area of the place was only about 100 square meters and was not as comfortable as the big villa, at least it meant that Zhang Cheng could not find them for now. They would have to take one day at a time now.

Zhang Cheng was in a very bad mood. The people around him could feel his angst and no one dared to provoke him, afraid that they would lose their heads if they accidentally said something wrong.

Zhang Cheng got into his car and said to the bodyguard in front, “Let’s go home.’

“Sure,” the bodyguard replied..
