Everyone busily walked forward to help Yun Qian Meng walk out of the room. Yun Ruo Xue who was standing in the middle has been pushed aside. Seeing everyone treat Yun Qian Meng like something precious, a touch of jealousy flashed through her eyes. Casually she hung her head and bowed with a really pitiful expression to the leaving figure of Yun Qian Meng.
Yun Qian Meng already walked to door but was dissatisfied that Yun Ruo Xue was still in the room. She turned, walked to Yun Ruo Xue, grabbed Yun Ruo Xue’s clenched hand and said with a concerned voice: “I haven’t had the time to ask how meimei’s head injury is. Is it better?”
A moved expression immediately appeared on Yun Ruo Xue’s face. With red eyes and a choking voice she said: “Thank jiejie for jiejei’s concern! Everything is well with meimei. Moreover, there’s the Ningzhi cream that jiejie sent over. Meimei used it for a few days and the scar on my head already disappeared very much. I haven’t yet thanked jiejie yet jiejie is already concerned about meimei. It really lets meimei feel flattered. Now I just want to get along with jiejie and to go together to waizumu’s birthday!”
The topic changed to the birthday again. Yun Qian Meng patted Yun Ruo Xue’s hand lightly. With a trace of being in a difficult position she said: “Meimei, your wound hasn’t stabilized yet. Carefully recover by Su yiniang’s side. Perhaps if you communicate with Su yiniang, maybe she’ll think it through. Jiejie will be waiting for your good news.”
After saying that, Yun Qian Meng smiled faintly and left with everyone. She only left Shui er and Ping er to wait here.
Yun Ruo Xue saw that everyone has left. It’ll be unhelpful to stay here. She masked her face full of anger and left with her maids from Qi Luo Yuan.
After paying her respect to Yun Qian Meng, Liu Han Yu approached Yun Qian Meng and whispered something. Yun Qian Meng narrowed her eyes. Liu Han Yu was with a lost expression. Her heart must not feel good, but still letting her to tell old madam and Yun Xuan Zhi about this matter. In front of Liu Han Yu’s puzzled look, Yun Qian Meng went with all her maids into Bai Shun Tang1.
Because of Yun Ruo Xue and Liu Han Yu, Yun Qian Meng almost got delayed for an hour. Fortunately, Yun Yiyi likes to sleep late. When Yun Qian Meng went to pay respect to the old madam, Yun Yiyi‘s eyes was full of sleep while she walked in a very slow pace out from her room. The maids in the room saw such a childlike Yun Yiyi, and then smiled. Old madam and Yun Qian Meng’s eyes were full of affection for Yun Yiyi. The old madam pulled Yun Yiyi to let her sit on the same armchair as her. One hand stroked Yun Yiyi’s hair. She said full of heartache to Yun Qian Meng: “This girl must’ve been tired from playing yesterday. Today she couldn’t wake up. No wonder I said how come I didn’t see her shadow after half a day.”
The meaning of those words on the surface is talking about Yun Yiyi, but the real meaning of those words is talking about Yun Qian Meng.
Presumably, yesterday Yun Yiyi must’ve reported every word back to old madam and old madam is not satisfied with the answer regarding the Ningzhi cream. So she seized the opportunity to say these words, alluding to Yun Qian Meng that because of some trivial matter she is late.
In front of this senseless fight, Yun Qian Meng laughed it off and also said with hidden meaning: “It’s just that meimei is too polite. All the way she was saying thanks, letting granddaughter feel a little embarrassed. After all we’re all family; sending a gift to meimei is what this jiejie should do. But meimei was too grateful; making granddaughter wants to be good to her.”
Old madam hearing Yun Qian Meng said that, the smile in her eyes shook a little and the smile on her face paled.
Yun Qian Meng is obviously saying that she is less than a little girl. She received Yun Qian Meng’s gifts, but didn’t show any gratitude.
But to let old madam who has backbone to throw back all the gifts to Yun Qian Meng is absolutely impossible. After all, all the jewelries she received are good things. Besides they came from Fu Gui Tang2.
With the personality of the old madam who loves wealth and expensive goods, must’ve hidden the jewelries in a deep place. Until the day of Lao Tai Jun’s birthday will she wear them to show her position in Xiangfu2.
- Bai Shun Tang is a part in the prime minister’s resident. The old madam is staying there with her grandchildren from her second son.
- Fu Gui Tang is the most famous and best place in the capital for selling jewelries. The jewelries from that place are expensive.
- Xiangfu is the prime minister’s resident.
