Although the maids at Fu Guo Gong Fu works pretty fast, but because the dowry of Qu Ruo Li is really too large, everyone was busy for the whole night before everything was cleared out of Su Qing’s chamber.
At midnight, old madam accompanied Ji Shu Yu and advised Yun Qian Meng to go back and rest. And Ji Shu Yu is watching over the maids that are bookkeeping and she personally saw the maid move all the object to Yun Qian Meng’s Qi Luo yuan. After that she was relieved.
Yun Qian Meng got a headache from looking at all the things in her yard. For a second, she actually admired Su Qing. That woman to get Qu Ruo Li’s dowry actually made a secret chamber that can fill the entire dowry and many other treasures.
Of course, Mi mama and Mu Chun are helping the maids of Fu Guo Gong Fu move some of the most valuable things into the inner chamber.
Yun Qian Meng saw that Ji Shu Yu has been busy the whole night because of her, her heart felt guilty. She held Ji Shu Yu’s hand and said with heartache: “If jiumu isn’t dissatisfied, jiumu can rest here before going back.”
Ji Shu Yu saw that she really cares for her, but Lao Tai Jun is still waiting for the news. So she smiled and touched Yun Qian Meng’s slightly pale face because of staying up and said while smiling faintly: “No, I still have to go back and report to Lao Tai Jun. But you need to go back and rest well.”
While talking, she handed the books to Yun Qian Meng and carefully said: “Carefully compare if it’s the same as previously. If one is missing, jiumu will certainly get it back for you.”
Yun Qian Meng seeing that Ji Shu Yu until this moment is still thinking about her matters, felt somewhat moved. She took over the books with both hands. With many emotions, she said: “Pity of the two corals. The benevolence that Fu Guo gong Fu has for Meng er will be difficult for Meng er to repay it in this lifetime.”
Ji Shu Yu seeing that when she says those words, she was really solemn, felt a little surprised. After half an incense stick did she gently embrace Yun Qian Meng who is still very young but who let people heart aches. She said: “You’re jiumu’s niece and also jiumu’s child. Moreover you’re Fu Guo Gong Fu’s child. Wouldn’t mother treat a child like this? You, this child, don’t be so distant. Be careful that jiumu won’t help you anymore in the future. Moreover, exchanging two corals for Ruo Li’s dowry is not a loss sale!”
Yun Qian Meng stayed quietly in Ji Shu Yu’s embrace, feeling the mother’s love that she didn’t have in the two lifetimes. This soft and gentle embrace bears immeasurable power and made Yun Qian Meng’s impetuous heart quiet down.
The maids at the side seeing that the sky was getting bright, kindly reminded Ji Shu Yu that she should go back to Fu Guo Gong Fu, otherwise Lao Tai Jun will get anxious.
Ji Shu Yu seeing that she spent the whole night on xiangfu knows that she indeed can no longer delay. She gently released Yun Qian Meng. With worry, she said: “The next few days, you need to be careful while dealing with everyone. If you can’t hold it down anymore, you can bring Fu Guo Gong Fu and the empress dowager out!”
Hearing that, Yun Qian Meng couldn’t help but laugh with her. It’s as if she is unreasonable and insisting on using power to suppress others! However, in Yun Qian Meng’s heart there was obviously a knife. If it wasn’t because of Ji Shu Yu’s status last night, she fears that she really couldn’t have suppressed old madam!
Su Qing vomited blood and fainted is because her status is too humble. This is also the most important reason why Su Qing would lose from the beginning.
Originally, she wanted to bring Ji Shu Yu till xiangfu’s door, but Ji Shu Yu stopped her at Qi Luo yuan’s door. At the same time, Ji Shu Yu got closer to Yun Qian Meng. Slightly worried, she whispered: “I heard your uncle’s children have been brought to xiangfu by old madam. Is that real?”
Since Ji Shu Yu asked, she naturally knows that it’s real. Yun Qian Meng also didn’t hide and nodded with a light smile. She told Ji Shu Yu about old madam’s plan.
Ji Shu Yu frowned. Yun Qian Meng laughed like clear wind and softly said: “Jiumu doesn’t need to worry too much. No matter how good they are, they aren’t father’s children. Meng er have a pretty good idea what’s going on.”
Ji Shu Yu saw her indifferent and calm appearance, the heart that was originally hanging, slowly came down. She let Yun Qian Meng quickly go back inside to rest. She herself went fast back to Fu Guo gong Fu with the maids.
Yun Qian Meng went back inside. Mi mama and Mu Chun were still moving the things. Seeing her coming back, Mi mama put down the things in her hand and said: “Miss, this old servant will serve you to rest.”
Yun Qian Meng shook her head: “No need. The sky is already bright. You help me freshen up. I need to go over to zumu’s to pay respect. Shui er and Bing er will look over these things. When we come back we can orden them.
Originally, Mi mama wanted to persuade Yun Qian Meng to rest well today, but then she thought that miss got such a large dowry, old madam must be unhappy. If miss don’t go pay respect because she has Fu Guo Gong Fu’s backing, old madam will surely let miss wear small shoes (making the days hard for YQM). So, she and Mu Chun helped Yun Qian Meng. One went to take water; the other took out clean clothes. They helped Yun Qian Meng clean her face and dress. Then they went to old madam’s Bai Shun Tang.
But old madam didn’t rest for an hour, so she naturally didn’t get up. Yun Qian Meng waited outside for a long time. Then they followed Rui mama into the inner chamber. They paid respect towards old madam’s bed. Then they silently left Bai Shun Tang.
At this time a crying sound can be heard from Feng He yuan. When Su Qing woke up, she saw that her secret chamber has been evacuated by two thirds, for some time she fell in front of the door of the chamber. She burst into tears while her hands slammed the carpet.
“Furen, furen, you can’t be too sad, ah! Don’t forget that in your belly, there’s still little master!”
Wang mama’s heart also felt pain. She knelt beside Su Qing. One hand held onto Su Qing, the other patted her chest to help Su Qing breath.
But how can these enter Su Qing’s ears? She never thought that this little slut, Yun Qian Meng will be ruthless to this extent. She (YQM) nearly evacuated her (SQ) whole Feng He yuan. Just thinking that the wealth that she has been hiding for over ten years has been taken by others, Su Qing felt that the blood in her body has been evacuated making it difficult to breath.
Yun Ruo Xue who came at this time, hid in the chamber and looked at the image of her mother crying. Her heart felt really regretful. Originally, she thought that Qi Ruo Li’s dowry is no different from ordinary people. But yesterday, when she saw the yard filled with treasures, she wished that she could be killed by slamming against a pillar. Those priceless treasures were originally hers, but now have been taken by that slut Yun Qian Meng with treacherous tricks. Yun Ruo Xue was so angry that she wanted to immediately rush to Qi Luo yuan to die together with Yun Qian Meng to amend for this. Only, Yun Ruo Xue also thought that she already lost such a significant amount of wealth; she definitely must not offend Yun Qian Meng because of this. Otherwise, the opportunity that she had gotten to attend to birthday in exchange of the dowry, will go to waste.
Yun Ruo Xue shrunk at the door and put all the things together. Although her heart regrets it very much, but the things are as they are now. To get the dowry back from Yun Qian Meng will be impossible. It would be better to put all focus on the birthday and find the mister right who everyone will envy. By that time, see how she’ll deal with Yun Qian Meng. Thinking like that, in Yun Ruo Xue’s eyes couldn’t help but show a trace of pride. But it has been seen by Su Qing who at this time looked back. Su Qing got up from the ground. Before Yun Ruo Xue could react, she (SQ) was already in front of her (YRX). A right hand flew towards Yun Ruo Xue’s face. A ‘pa’ sound has beaten Yun Ruo Xue senseless and also has beaten the tears out of Su Qing. Su Qing pointed at the door and shouted: “Get Lost! Get lost!”
Yun Ruo Xue’s mind went blank and looked at Su Qing’s grim expression. Her heart suddenly was afraid. She isn’t loved by the people of xiangfu. If Su Qing also doesn’t want her, her situation can already be imagined.
Yun Ruo Xue didn’t think about it anymore. She reflective knelt down. She held Su Qing’s legs and wailed loudly: “Mother, what’s the matter with you? All of this has been dug by Yun Qian Meng tempting me to jump in. How can you put the blame on me? I just wanted to find a good home for myself and that can also help little brother in the future. Mother, ah, you can’t drive me away. I’m your biological daughter, ah. You doing this, isn’t it hurting yourself? Is it happy like this? If Yun Qian Meng knows that our mother-daughter relationship is broken, won’t she be laughing at us in secret?”
But the Su Qing of today has made up her mind. No matter how much Yun Ruo Xue cried for mercy, the firm look in her eyes never changed.
In Su Qing’s eyes, she regarded Yun Qian Meng as her enemy even before she was born. Su Qing has never been relent to this enemy. A few times, she even wants to put Yun Qian Meng to death. Therefore, Yun Qian Meng doing this, she can only blame herself for being not as good as others. Aside from feeling heartache for the dowry, her heart didn’t move much.
But Yun Ruo Xue is different! When Su Qing was pregnant with Yun Ruo Xue, she put all hope in the child in her belly. Although later, Yun Ruo Xue was born as a girl, but after all she is Su Qing’s first child. Su Qing is naturally fond of this little baby girl. So the maternal love she gave Yun Ruo Xue is more than what others imagined. But now, the one that let her loss the dowry to others, isn’t someone else, but Su Qing’s eldest daughter, the apple of her eye. How can her heart not be cold? How can she not hate?
Yun Ruo Xue has been exploited by Yun Qian Meng for herself. She disregarded the upbringing of so many years. This is real betrayal! It hit Su Qing more than losing the dowry.
Now Su Qing doesn’t want to see Yun Ruo Xue. She just want that she (YRX) stays far away from her and hope that she (YRX) not appear in front of her. She also hopes that the stupidest of Yun Ruo Xue won’t hinder the future of the child in her belly.
But Yun Ruo Xue is unwilling to let go. No matter how Su Qing looked, no matter how cold Su Qing looked at her, she knows that if she let go, she’ll become a child like Yun Qian Meng who doesn’t have a mother to care for her. She doesn’t want it to be like that. Before everything has been schemed by Su Qing for her. If in the future, she is left by herself, she really doesn’t know how to live on. Not to mention that now in the fu, there’s an old madam who dislikes her. So she knows that if she lose her mother’s protection, she doesn’t know if the old madam would find an ordinary family and hastily marry her off.
Thinking of that, Yun Ruo Xue burst into tears. She didn’t care about image and pasted her face on Su Qing’s legs. She cried while shaking her head and didn’t let go. It angered Su Qing till she frowned. She gave Wang mama a glance to let her drag Yun Ruo Xue out.
But after all, Wang mama has watched Yun Ruo Xue grown up. Although, second miss is unreasonable, but in Wang mama’s heart, she still loves Yun Ruo Xue. Now, Wang mama needs to look at how the relationship between mother and daughter is broken. Wang mama’s heart is really unwilling. So she tried to help Yun Ruo Xue: “Furen, ah, miss is still very young and since she was little she grew up under your care. Naturally, she won’t have much scheme. But that Yun Qian Meng isn’t the same. In order to survive in xiangfu, she hid too well all these years and actually fooled everyone. Until today did she reveal her fox tail. Comparing the simpleness of second miss and the calculations of the eldest miss, of course she’ll lose. Eldest miss wants to use second miss, it’s simple and easy. Today, if you broke of the relationship of mother and daughter, do you think eldest miss will still be lenient towards second miss? I’m afraid that if second miss experience hardship, the one who will be in pain is still furen, ah!”
Because of Wang mama’s talking, the original unshaken heart of Su Qing shook a little. And then she saw the gauze wrapped around Yun Ruo Xue’s head, tears fell onto her face. Her eyes became swollen and her heart has some unwillingness. But Su Qing’s heart still has some anger. To let her immediately forgive Yun Ruo Xue will be somewhat difficult. She closed her eyes, bit her lips and thought about the words that Wang mama just said.
Yun Ruo Xue saw that someone is speaking for her, immediately released Su Qing and rushed to Wang mama. Full of tears and snot, she said: “Mama, mama, you know that mother normally loves Xue er the most. Help me ask for forgiveness. This time, it really wasn’t intentional! Zumu and Yun Qian Meng joined hands to scheme against me. How would I know there are so many turns and curves?! I actually dragged mother, ah! If I knew that Yun Qian Meng didn’t have good intentions, even if I cut my hair and become a nun, I’ll definitely not pester mother to let her surrender the dowry! Mama, I know I’m wrong. I beg you to say some good words to mother. Mother is also pregnant. She can’t get angry. Mama, Xue er begs you……”
Till the end of her speech, Yun Ruo Xue tears streamed down. Her hands tightly held Wang mama’s waist. At the same time, she let herself into Wang mama’s embrace. She wished she could paste herself onto Wang mama’s body.
Wang mama seeing her crying so sadly, her heart softened more. She continues to persuade Su Qing: “Furen, second miss is a piece of meat that fell from your body, ah. Do you really have the heart to not care about her anymore? See how pitiful miss is. The gauze is still on her head and she is crying like this. In the future if it leaves a root for illness, what can be done, ah?!”
While speaking, Wang mama carefully untied the gauze on Yun Ruo Xue’s head. She discovered that scar seemed to have healed, but inside the wound there’s yellow pus. Wang mama is suddenly scared. The hand holding the gauze trembled. Frightened, she looked at Su Qing.
Su Qing’s heart already softened because of Wang mama’s persuasion. Now, seeing Wang mama’s strange movement, she also followed Wang mama’s gaze and looked at Yun Ruo Xue’s forehead. Immediately her heart felt light. She almost fell. She immediately helps Yun Ruo Xue stand and said with pain in her heart: “Xue er, just now mother was wrong. Mother shouldn’t have gotten angry at you, but in the future, you’re also not allowed to be like that anymore. Otherwise, this xiangfu will really not have place for us anymore.”
Yun Ruo Xue saw that Su Qing finally have forgiven her, she smiled through tears. She helf onto Su Qing’s waist and wouldn’t let go. But Su Qing is looking worried t Yun Ruo Xue’s head. She pulled Yun Ruo Xue apart and asked: “Didn’t you put medicine on time on the scar on your forehead? Why did it become so scary?”
Speaking of that, Yun Ruo Xue also has many doubts in her heart. She had let the doctor check the Ningzhi cream and confirmed that it wasn’t poisoned before applying it. The scar on her forehead looked like it healed, but the pus inside the wound grew bigger and bigger. These past few days, it emitted and odor. It scared her, so she can only continue to wrap a thick gauze around it to avoid being laughed by people.
Su Qing listened to Yun Ruo Xue, her heart is also full of doubts. She took over the Ningzhi cream from Yun Ruo Xue and carefully examined it. She didn’t find any abnormalities, but Xue er’s wound got more serious letting people unable not to suspect that Yun Qian Meng did something.
“Wang mama, hurry and ask Wei doctor to come!”
Seeing that Yun Ruo Xue’s injury can no longer be delayed, Su Qing let Wang mama invite the doctor that is specifically in charge of her pregnancy, come over.
Wang mama hearing that and knowing that it’s important, immediately left Feng He yuan to invite Wei doctor over.
As you may have seen, the chapters of CWF are really long. So there may not be many updates. Besides, I’ve some personal problems that I need to fix.
I really wish I had one of those mamas. They are so loyal to their master. For those who have forgotten about the Ningzhi cream; the cream is something that can cure scars, but if used too much will have the opposite effect. The cream is gifted by YQM to YRX. YQM took a bet that YRX will use too much so causing the scar to become more serious.
