My favorite character is here ^^.
“What are you doing?”
At this time, a middle aged man wearing blue robe rushed over. He glared once fiercely at Su furen on the ground. Then he quickly glances at Chen wang, Jiang Mu Chen. He said in a low voice: “What matter can’t wait till we go back to the fu to discuss it? Why must you be a disgrace in front of everyone? Do you know that today’s Lao Tai Jun’s birthday? If you make Lao Tai Jun unhappy, can you take that one yourself?”
Su furen has been reprimanded by her own husband without reason. Her heart felt many grievances, but she still didn’t dare to get up. She only can raise her head to look at Su Yuan. With a sad voice, she said: “Daren, is this qie’s1 fault? Because Yue er fell into the water, she is lying with fever in bed. But Miss Yun is persistently refusing to admit her mistake. Instead, she taught qie a lesson. This is really difficult for qie.”
After saying that, that Su furen seemed really afraid. She quickly lowered her body and didn’t speak anymore.
The minister of justice, Su Yuan frowned. That pair of eyes tainted with hostility glared at Yun Qian Meng. Then he said while frowning a little: “Miss Yun, our two families are related. I can be considered your jiujiu. Qian Yue is your biaojie. Just what unpleasant things happened between you and biaojie that you need to push her into water? You know that women put most importance on their appearance. What motive do you have for trapping Yue er in such injustice? Did somebody instruct you? Today, if you say the name of that person behind you, jiujiu can assure you that this family scandal will never get out. Otherwise, come (people)!”
While talking, Su Yuan began to shout at the guards to take Yun Qian Meng away.
Qu Fei Qing saw that Su Yuan was so vicious and wanted to harm Yun Qian Meng, the pair of hands hidden under the sleeves turned into fists.
The furens and Misses, whom just now were speaking for Yun Qian Meng, are aware of the use of torture by the minister of justice. They were somewhat afraid and shutted their mouth. They just stood at the side to watch.
Yun Qian Meng’s gaze needs to pass through Chu Fei Yang and Jiang Mu Chen before it went to Su Yuan.
Su Yuan was dressed in a golden sapphire robe of the officials of the second rank. It made him seem really imposing.
It’s just that it was because Su Yuan has been the minister of justice for a long time that his body and eyes exuded deep strong aura. Moreover, there seemed to be a lingering smell of blood from the prison on his body, making Su Yuan look scary. No wonder those furens and Misses immediately shutted their mouths. Presumably, everyday, they didn’t hear any less of the fame of the minister of justice.
And the dialogue between Su furen and Su Yuan just now, is to put the charges on Yun Qian Meng for pushing a person in water. The motive is really evident.
But Su Yuan can be like this in front of Jiang Mu Chen and Chu Fei Yang, is presumably because there is someone more powerful than Yun Xuan Zhi behind him. Otherwise, with the relation between Su Yuan and Yun Xuan Zhi, surely he wouldn’t dare to let her be a disgrace in front of everyone. And just before Su Yuan opened his mouth to blame her, he glanced once at Chen wang. Althought, it’s only one glance, but it made people feel odd. And Chen wang also didn’t stop Su Yuan like how he stopped Su furen. This move also lets people wonder.
However, Su Yuan’s shout didn’t get any guards, but it made Chu Fei Yang chuckle.
Now it seems that he finally noticed Jiang Mu Chen and Chu Fei Yang. A bit frightened, he bowed to the two people and said respectfully: “Xiaguan2 was rude. I didn’t pay attention and didn’t see that wangye and Chu xiang are also here. I hope that you won’t blame me because I was worried about my daughter. As for my wife, she doesn’t know the rules and has offended you two. Please, asking wangye and Chu xiang to also forgive her.”
Jiang Mu Chen was cold like always. He coldly swept his gaze over that minister of justice, Su Yuan without a word. His body is still standing in front of Su furen, blocking her.
Chu Fei Yang’s lips slightly lifted. The perfect arc immediately calmed many ladies. And he himself didn’t care. He glanced once at Jiang Mu Chen and Su Yuan.
That pair of eyes, blacker than ink, is smiling, making Su Yuan shiver a bit involuntarily. On his ear only sounded Chu Fei Yang’s light voice while asking: “Su daren’s family teaching is really good. You don’t even see what kind of place this is and let your wife use violence. Do you know, if this gets to the emperor’s ear, what the fate of Su daren will be? Surely, ben3xiang doesn’t need to remind you, Su daren as the minister of justice must’ve understood. The thousand and one punishment of the prison is really interesting.”
Su Yuan felt that the volume of Chu Fei Yang’s voice isn’t high. His voice is moist. But why does he feel cold sweat forming on his back? In particular, Su Yuan is in the morning court together with Chu Fei Yang. Naturally, he knows Chu Fei Yang’s strategies. Normally, he is always smiling, but when on the battlefield, Chu Fei Yang is a cold-faced general. The skill of murdering a person without blinking an eye, has been seen by this minister of justice. He as the minister of justice who tortured many people, will also tremble at that sight.
And now Chu Fei Yang is speaking for Yun Qian Meng. Su Yuan needed to weight this relationship very well. Should he vent the anger for his daughter and humiliate Yun Qian Meng in public or should he give Chu Fei Yang face and let the matter go?
While thinking like that, Su Yuan’s eyes secretly looked at Jiang Mu Chen. He saw that Jiang Mu Chen didn’t have any sigh of interceding for Yun Qian Meng. His disturbed heart gradually returned to its place.
Just now Su Yuan’s back was slightly curved. He actually straightened it up without anyone noticing. With an expression more gloomy than grilled meat, he looked at Chu Fei Yang. He said: “Xiangye, this is xiaguan’s family matter. Please asking xiangye to make it easy and let xiaguan get things clearly with this niece.”
Yun Qian Meng saw that the other is entangling himself like snake around her. She gradually became angry. The smile one her face became more brilliant. She slowly stepped forward. Those sparkling eyes revealed an unattainable wisdom and they emitted a light. But they are also as cold as the winter snow. For a time, it let Su Yuan who thought that Yun Qian Meng is easy to bully, flashed surprise.
“Thanks xiangye for your help.”
The scene just now, Yun Qian Meng saw it. Although Chu Fei Yang’s words are slacking, but the meaning of those words is helping her.
Yun Qian Meng’s logic has always been: if I get one slap, I’ll pay them back with ten slaps. Moreover, this case is just a fight between words. There’s no difficulty. Why should she be stingy? She can better be generous and let Su Yuan has a level of fear. This is also a good thing to her.
It’s the same as Yun Qian Meng thought. Hearing her saying thanks, Su Yuan and Jiang Mu Chen, they both frowned at the same time. But Su Yuan’s gaze is on herself and Jiang Mu Chen gaze is hitting sparks with Chu Fei Yang’s gaze. It almost seemed like fireworks.
Yun Qian Meng did as if she didn’t see the subtle reaction of these people. She looked smilingly at Su Yuan and calmly said: “What Su daren just said, let this little girl be very confused. Can Su daren point a thing or two out?”
Su Yuan saw that Yun Qian Meng is still maintaining a calm expression, his heart was surprised. Especially when remembering about the past few days, xiaomei, Su Qing’s letters mentioning the change in Yun Qian Meng. He only said that Su Qing is oversensitive, but it seemed today, this Yun Qian Meng seemed to have reincarnated. Reincarnated into a different person. And also seeing that today there are many people present, his heart is more cautious. He is always himself that he shouldn’t be a fool in front of everyone.
While thinking like that, Su Yuan’s exuded evilness. With a face full of loving smile, he looked at Yun Qian Meng. Gently, he asked: “Don’t know what niece doesn’t understand. Although you and I didn’t see each other often, but we’re still relatives. If niece has something that you don’t understand, you can directly ask. Don’t need to be so stiff.”
Yun Qian Meng saw that Su Yuan is now pretending to be friendly, her heart felt disgust. She calmly asked: “My mother’s home is Fu Guo Gong Fu and the houye here is my real jiujiu. I don’t know since when Su fu’s Su daren has become my jiujiu. Can it be that you are separated from the fu, changed the ancestor’s surname and is unwilling to be a descendant of Qu family? This made little girl very puzzled. Asking Su daren to carefully explain and also let the furens and Misses present get more experience.”
After those remarks, those furens and Misses held up their hands to block their lips. It’s just that those eyes, revealed their expressions. This Su daren has probably become everyone’s laughing stock.
Su Yuan didn’t think that Yun Qian Meng will let him lose so much face in public. And he didn’t know that she will ridicule him in public. For a time, the smile on his face disappeared and put a vicious expression. The hatred in his eyes is enough to let Yun Qian Meng die eight to ten times.
However, although Su Yuan is angry, he also knows that gossip is a fearful thing. If this matter isn’t properly handled, he fears that the censor who has nothing to do, will send a dagger to him in front of the emperor about wronging an innocent lady. By then, even if he can keep the position of the minister of justice, his reputation will have been shattered.
It’s just that this Yun Qian Meng in front of him is really hateful. He pointed all fingers at her just now, but she is able to save herself like that. It can be seen that if this woman isn’t removed, he is afraid that she will be a threat to his xiaomei, Su Qing.
Thinking like that, Su Yuan’s expression turned more serious. The words coming out of his mouth are now more irritating: “Since Miss Yun doesn’t recognize the affection between you and me, then benguan4 doesn’t need to give Miss Yun face. Just one thing, benguan will not let the matter of my daughter falling into water today, go.
“How will daren not let it go? Is it that you are using the torture from prison against little girl or is it that you are going to frame little girl? Moreover, just now, I have said everything clearly to Su furen. If you don’t have evidence, you must not casually frame people. Moreover, daren is the minister of justice. You can’t be suspicious of someone so easily. If it’s so, does daren think that the emperor will still be at ease to let daren deal with the cases? Can it be that the emperor isn’t afraid that daren will be swayed by personal connections, judge the case wrongly and arrest the wrong person? Or is it that Su furen and Su daren saw little girl push Miss Su into the lake? Or is there a witness or evidence?”
Yun Qian Meng saw that Su Yuan became ruthless. She didn’t want to lose, she immediately began a battle of words with him.
When the war of words fell down, the hearts of everyone are praising this Miss of xiangfu for her eloquent tongue. They also generated a sense of disgust for Su Yuan who got his position as the minister of justice through connections.
Although Su Yuan’s isn’t a match for Yun Qian Meng at a battle of words, but after all, he has been the minister of justice for so many years. He is well versed in all means of interrogation. He looked at Yun Qian Meng and suddenly smiled insidiously. He asked: “What if there’s evidence and witnesses? Miss Yun pushing people into water is the same as murder. This is a severe offense. I don’t know if by that time, Miss Yun can still be so tough.”
Yun Qian Meng saw that the other apparently came prepared; she actually felt it’s very funny. She didn’t get angry. Her heart is very calm. Suddenly, she increased her volume and said to the crowd: “Today, every furen and Miss is present, Chu xiang is present, Chen wang is present. I ask everyone to testify for Qian Meng. I’d like to see what that evidence and witness of Su daren are that you can be so sure.”
While talking, Yun Qian Meng took a few steps forward. She doesn’t need Chu Fei Yang and Jiang Mu Chen’s protection. She stood in front of Su Yuan. That pair of eyes full of cheerful determination looked straight at Su Yuan, waiting for him to come with the evidence.
But how can Su Yuan be afraid of a little girl? He smiled coldly towards Yun Qian Meng. He took a flower shaped jade pendant from his sleeves. That jade was wrapped in lavender colored silk. It’s obviously a pendant worn by women on their waist.
Everyone’s eyes looked at Yun Qian Meng. She is dressed in purple today. For a time, everyone discussed. It seemed very unfavorable for Yun Qian Meng.
What Su Yuan wants is this effect. Sometimes, pressing a suspect may not let the suspect confess, but the pressure of the public can defeat the physiological denfense of the suspect. The suspect will then easily surrender.
But Su Yuan don’t know that Yun Qian Meng was the head of the narcotics department in her past life. This kind of childish trick is just ridiculous in her eyes. She continued to smile at Su Yuan without speaking and let everyone point at her leisurely.
In contrary, it was Su Yuan who was stunned. He didn’t think that Yun Qian Meng will still have the gall to be so cunning and dared to use silence to deal with him. He opened his mouth to interrogate: “Miss Yun must recognize this jade pendant. It’s just that I don’t know why Miss Yun’s pendant has been tightly grabbed in the hand of my daughter. Presumably, when my daughter was pushed into water, she took it form Miss’s body.”
After that remark, the front yard roared. Those furens, Misses and gentlemen, all looked at Yun Qian Meng. They saw that the beauty wasn’t afraid.
Chen wang’s cold eyes also looked at Yun Qian Meng. Chu Fei Yang is also staring at Yun Qian Meng. His eyes are shining with curiosity. Presumably, he is looking forward to the next excuse of Yun Qian Meng.
Yun Qian Meng looked at the jade pendant that is shining under the light. She also saw Su Yuan’s well thought expression. She didn’t explain, but asked: “Where is the witness?”
Su Yuan was slightly stunned. He is puzzled about this move of Yun Qian Meng. She is just a little girl who is fooling around. He fears that she won’t shed tears before seeing a coffin. So he fulfilled Yun Qian Meng’s curiosity. He shouted to behind him: “Miss Xing, please come out.”
Xing Jin Die who rushed out of Huan Xi yuan to repair her make up, is now neatly dressed. She slowly walked out. At the same time, her mouth didn’t stop moving. While looking at Yun Qian Meng’s face, she has an expression of wanting to harm her (YQM).
“I can testify. It was indeed Yun Qian Meng who pushed Yue jiejie into water. Furens, you’ve all been deceived by Yun Qian Meng. This woman is ruthless. She felt jealous of Yue jiejie and wanted to take her life. The heart is so vicious; really let me feel chill as a woman.”
Yun Qian Meng looked at the Xing Jin Die, who does more harm than good. She felt that this whole thing is a farce. She also saw that Su Yuan wouldn’t give up before getting rid of herself, so she no longer retreated. She smiled coldly at Xing Jin Die and asked: “When Miss Su fell into water, Miss Xing was no longer in Huan Xi yuan. Could it be that Miss Xing is clairvoyant that you can hear the dialogue between I and Miss Su and also can see the moment when Miss Su fell into water? I actually didn’t know that in our Xi Chu country has such a talent as Miss Xing. When going to war, our Xi Chu will be invincible.”
After some mock and ridicule, that little face full of make up of Xing Jin Die broke. The whole face suddenly turned grim. She hopped while pointing at Yun Qian Meng and scolded: “Yun Qian Meng, it’s obviously your poisonous hands! Now you are shamelessly denying! This is a despicable means and you are the eldest Miss of xiangfu! And your mother is a Miss of Fu Guo Gong Fu. Really let people look down on your mother’s family!”
Really don’t know if this Xing Jin Die’s head also went into the lake and is now full of water. While talking she didn’t bother with the occasion and the place. She is simply pointing at Yun Qian Meng’s face and scolding Fu Guo gong Fu. For a time, everyone stopped their gaze from watching the spectacle. They walked back a few steps to not become a suffering fish. The moment Xing Jin Die’s words left her mouth, Su Yuan’s heart is calling bad.
Although Su family and Fu Guo Gong fu’s relation isn’t very good because of their two daughters. But for many years it was a thin layer of dough. Today, because of the trouble that this Xing Jin Die caused, will let the matter of the Misses fighting in the homes because of jealousy; raise again the issue between the two fus. Seeing that Emperor Yu Qian personally came to Fu Guo Gong Fu to celebrate, this Fu Guo gong Fu must be deeply favored. This is not a place where a small Su fu can crash with.
Thinking like that, Su Yuan hid his domineering aura a little. Eyes with a touch of worry looked at Chen wang. But the other party still looked calm and cold, making it clear that he is the impervious Chen wang.
The words of Xing Jin die stung Yun Qian Meng’s heart. That kind of sudden pain seems to go deep into the bones. The pain will be infinite.
Yun Qian Meng knows that this is the past that is left in this body. The longing for a mother’s love is hidden deep in the heart.
Today, because of her own matter, it lets the Yun furen who has already passed away, receive such great insult. It let Yun Qian Meng get really angry. The originally calm aura surrounding the whole body has been broken.
An icy and chill air went straight at Xing Jin Die. At this time, the voice of Yun Qian Meng is cold as snow. Very cold.
“Miss Xing is born from a family with etiquette. You must certainly know to respect someone else’s mother. Although the emperor isn’t the empress dowager’s biological son, but he is polite and respectful towards the empress dowager. He is a model of a dutiful son. But Miss Xing’s parents are still alive and have a good family background, but you don’t understand this principle. Is it that Xing daren isn’t strict or is it that Miss Xing is originally such a domineering person to be so disrespectful to someone who already passed away? Moreover, everyone present is presumably aware that Miss Xing’s father is the subordinate of the minister of justice. Where is the justice? Are Su daren not afraid that people will think that Su daren borrowed the court for personal use and intent to rebel?”
Yun Qian Meng’s words are strong and fierce, but it also has a lot of grievances. Especially when talking about the deceased Qu Ruo Li, the whole body is covered in grief. For a moment the furens and Misses thought about her poor life. Immediately eyes full of blame shot at Xing Jin Die. And the gentlemen opened their mouth to hep out. Especially, Yuan Qing Zhou is the loudest while accusing minister Su.
When did Xing Jin Die saw such a scene? Everyone is wishing to devour her, scaring her that she immediately sat onto the ground. The legs are a mess, the hands are also a mess and she cried.
Just now Yun Qian Meng is pushing such a big hat down his head, making Su Yuan’s face also paled down. He looked at Jiang Mu Chen with pale face and quickly clarified: “Wangye, xiaguan is very loyal to Xi Chu, to the emperor. Asking wangye to see that. You must not listen to Miss Yun’s nonsense and framing xiaguan.”
Jiang Mu Chen saw that Yun Qian Meng easily makes the crowd go against Su Yuan and he also saw Yuan Qing Zhou wishing that he could rush forward and beat someone; he immediately looked at Yun Qian Meng. He stared at her back and issued a warning: “Miss Yun is a lady from a good family. You should not interfere in matters that women shouldn’t interfere with. The empress dowager is the model amongst women. How can Miss Yun being the biological niece of the empress dowager not know these rules?”
When Chen wang’s cold voice fell down, the chattering calmed down. But Yun Qian Meng didn’t look back. She is still standing with a straight back at the same place. It’s just that in that pair of red eyes flashed coldness. She was about to open her mouth, but a lazy voice grabbed the turn: “Benxiang’s view is the opposite of wanye. Benxiang do not think that Miss Yun is interfering with the affairs of the court. As long as they are citizens of Xi Chu, they will feel concern for their country. Can it be that wangye doesn’t wish that the citizens’ hearts is with the country? If that is so, what hope is there for such a country?”
The opinion of Chu Fei Yang lets the people quietly nod their heads. Despite being attacked by Jian Mu Chen’s authority, Chu Fei Yang has withstood his attacks.
Hearing that, Jiang Mu Chen looked sideways and faced Chu Fei Yang who always kept a smile on his face. Two pairs of cold eyes touched in the sky. It felt like the sea that hit the reed. Really difficult to tell who will win.
“So, when women talk about the affairs of the state, it can be interpreted as concern?”
Jiang Mu Chen narrowed his eyes and looked at Chu Fei Yang. He felt that Chu Fei Yang’s performance today is making him angrier than that day in the hall. (when he helped YQM break off the engagement in chapter 2 or 3).
Chu Fei Yang just shrugged his shoulders. With a touch of innocence, he said: “When did wangye heard a half word about the affairs of the state from Miss Yun’s mouth? Miss Yun is only having some doubts about Su daren’s official ways. Even in everyone’s fus, the old madams will teach their children and grandchildren about loving the country. The furens will also remind their darens to be an uncorrupt official. How come concern becomes interference in the state affairs at wanye’s?”
Jiang Mu Chen didn’t think that Chu Fei Yang will be so annoying. His originally reasonable words being rebutted by him (CFY) became pale and feeble. Now it seemed that Chu Fei Yang’s words are the right ones.
Su Yuan saw Chu Fei Yang who never bothered with anyone is actually helping Yun Qian Meng. His brows couldn’t help but knit tightly together. Looking at Xing Jin Die who was sitting on the ground and crying, he felt more disgusted.
But now they fought for a few times. If he withdraws now, isn’t it saying to everyone that he framed Yun Qian Meng? In the future with what face can he still sit firmly in the position of the minister of justice? By that time, he fears that tomorrow morning in the emperor’s hands will be one more scroll criticizing himself.
Thinking like that, Su Yuan let his heart become ruthless. He raised the pendant in his hand and walked around the yuan to let everyone take a good look on the pendant in his hand. After that, he stood in front of Yun Qian Meng again and demanded: “Asking Miss Yun to talk about the matter of this pendant. I think that my daughter won’t take Miss Yun’s personal thing away without reason. If Miss Yun admits now, I will let bygones be bygones. Otherwise, don’t blame benguan for being heartless!”
After saying that, Su Yuan put on his authority as an official and coldly humphed at Yun Qian Meng.
Yun Qian Meng is unyieldng. She casually looked at Su Yuan, who puts a personal thing of an unmarried woman into the crowd. She knows that today, Su Yuan not only want to charge her with pushing someone into water, but he also wants to destroy her reputation. With such an ulterior motive in his heart, he really is the brother of Su Qing born from the same mother. They are equally vicious.
The crowd saw the happenings just now, the felt some pity for Yun Qian Meng. But seeing the evidence in Su Yuan’s hand, they looked at Yun Qian Meng with compassion.
The anger of Yun Qian Meng now turned into laughter. It’s just that the smile didn’t reach the eyes. That pair of frost cold eyes looked at Su Yuan. Clearly and plainly, she said: “Is Su daren really the minister of justice? With just a mere jade pendant, you concluded that little girl is the assailant? If that is so, then little girl needs to argue very well with daren. Firstly, today is Lao Tai Jun’s birthday. People are coming and going from Fu Guo Gong Fu. Every furen and Misses are dressed very well today. If they are not careful and dropped something while walking, is very normal. Secondly, every furen and Miss saw, when Miss Su fell into water, Qian Meng immediately went to rescue her and also wanted to grab Miss Su to not let her fell into water. And while in the rush, Qian Meng also accidentally pulled off Miss Su’s belt. In contrast, in order to survive, Miss Su naturally can also grab something that is the nearest to her which is anything on my body. This is also something that can be justified. Thirdly, Su daren as an official from the outside, naturally you can’t enter Huan Xi yuan. But you didn’t go seek the truth and considered Qian Meng as the assailant just based on rumors. This really let people’s heart get the chill. In the future, if someone from Su family is in trouble, who will still dare to reach out a helping hand? Can it be that others aren’t afraid that Su daren will falsely accuse them? Fourthly, Su daren just said that because of face, Su daren will not let this matter go public, but at this time so many people are standing here. Qian Meng tolerated again and again and didn’t want to damage Miss Su reputation, but Su daren seemed like you wanted to make this into something big. You saying one thing but doing another thing, where is the official’s reputation? Qian Meng doesn’t even need to explain this.”
Qu Fei Qing saw that Yun Qian Meng is thinking really well. Every sentence is like a dagger to the heart. For a time, she couldn’t help but raise the flag and shout in her heart for this biaomei. She actually forgot the fact that just now Su Yuan made her tremble.
From the beginning Su Yuan wanted to take away Yun Qian Meng to the prison and torment her. But today, not only Chen wang is here, even Chu Fei Yang didn’t move half a step. Now, not only did Yun Qian Meng point out every flaw, but now everyone also knows about the embarrassing matter of Su Qian Yue falling into water. It let Su Yuan don’t know what to do for a moment. He can only look down and reprimand his wife.
“Weren’t you following Yue er? How could you let such a thing happen to her? How are you being this mother?”
That Su furen received the hint by her own husband, her body moved: “Laoye, qieshen was indeed following Yue er, but at the time she fell into water, qieshen was almost scared to death……”
“Was Su furen following Miss Su? Why didn’t I see you? Did furens and Misses whom were present, see? Or should we ask the little maid who received the guest today to see if furen came together with Miss?”
Yun Qian Meng won’t give the other the space to breath. Since today they have fallen into her hands, even if they don’t die, they need to be skinned.
That Su furen was lying with her eyes open. She was afraid and lowered her head. The contempt in the eyes of the furens and Misses is enough to let her not be able to lift her head again in this lifetime.
Su Yuan saw that Yun Qian Meng is forcing people to death, his face was full of disgrace. His foot landed on Su furen’s back. He cursed: “Slut, you didn’t find out the truth and framed the innocent. How should meimei continue to live in xiangfu?”
Su furen being treated like that by her own husband has long ago been too frightened. She kneeled on the ground and begged for mercy. No matter how pitiful she is now, no one felt sympathy for her.
Yun Qian Meng saw how Su Yuan is putting on a show and also heard him mentioning Su Qing, her heart got chillier. She raised her voice and said: “Even if Su daren knows that Qian Meng has been wronged, little girl is asking for an explanation. Su furen didn’t separate the white from the black and let little girl’s reputation be damaged. How can little girl swallow this blackened name without reason? If so, who will later want to work with father? How can father stand in the court? And where would Fu Guo Gong Fu’s face be? Little girl wants to go report it and let the emperor wash away the grievances for little girl.”
Yuan Qian Meng has an expression full of righteousness. The eyes are full of grievances, but they are also unyielding. Even facing with a person like Su Yuan who is covered in a strong aura, she didn’t flinch. It let all the furens and Misses whisper about all the things between xiangfu and Su fu.
And Yun Qian Meng saying one, she won’t do two. She lifted her legs and walked towards the inner yuan……
At this time, Yun Ruo Xue who has been silent for a long time, suddenly rushed in front of Chu Fei Yang. Her eyes stared straight at Chu Fei Yang and said clearly: “Xiangye, little girl is willing to prove that Yun Qian Meng pushed Yue jiejie into water.”
Chu Fei Yang glanced at Yun Ruo Xue. He also saw that Yun Qian Meng turned back. He smiled: “What explanation does Miss Yun have? After all, this Miss Yun is your sister. She probably wouldn’t frame her own sister because of her biaojie.”
Yun Qian Meng heard Chu Fei Yang’s words. Although, he sometimes seemed to be helping Su Yuan and sometimes he seemed to be helping her, but every word of Chu Fei Yang is precious. It seemed like a normal question, but every word is reminding her how to rebuke.
For a time, the always calm expression of Yun Qian Meng, moved slightly. Seeing that face of Chu Fei Yang which has a too brilliant smile, she unconsciously frowned: “Xiangye couldn’t have forgotten that I and meimei is born from the same father, but different mothers. And meimei and Su daren are the ones who are really jiujiu and niece. Qian Meng is dull and reckless, only saying everything at any kind of occasion. Asking xiangye to release Qian Meng to let me go report.”
It seemed that Yun Qian Meng didn’t say anything, but in fact she said everything.
Who doesn’t know that ugly matter of xiangfu? Su Qing getting favor let every yiniang in the fus became cocky. How can the official wives and these legitimate daughters not hate Su Qing?
After Yun Qian Meng’s words fell, Yun Ruo Xue felt that her front and back are burning with gazes. For a time, she couldn’t keep going.
However, she has been caught by Chu Fei Yang’s handsome face in front of her. She didn’t want to miss such a good chance.
But at this time, came a figure from the back yard. That figure rushed straight to Yun Ruo Xue and pulled her. He shouted in a low voice: “You, an unmarried daughter, how can you freely speak with a man?”
Yun Ruo Xue raised her head and saw that Yun Xuan Zhi has come. Her heart bursted with joy. She was about to tell her daddy that she has set her eyes on Chu Fei Yang, but she saw that Yun Xuan Zhi’s expression is too serious. For a time, she had some fear and didn’t dare to open her mouth.
At this time, Yun Xuan Zhi’s attention is on his eldest daughter. Just now a servant came to report what happened at Huan Xi yuan. Although he knew that Su Qing’s family is obviously making things difficult for Yun Qian Meng, but today they are standing in Fu Guo Gong Fu. At this time, the emperor and the empress are here. Does Su Yuan really want to thoroughly lose face? Such nonsense regardless of the occasion. Tomorrow, that Qin censor presumably will make things difficult for him (YXZ) again.
Yun Xuan Zhi was weighing how he should explain to Lai Tai Jun, when from the backyard came another person. The houye of Fu Guo Gong Fu, Qu Ling Ao with a noble air, came out. When he saw the niece who he hasn’t seen in a long time, that pair of eyes smiled. He softly said: “Meng er has suffered. The emperor and the empress dowager are summoning you.”
“Did the little emperor also come? Houye, really sorry, benwang is late!”
By this time, from Fu Guo Gong Fu’s main entrance, walked in, a man of about sixty years. He has a tall posture. Although he is old but his appearance is still handsome. That pair of eyes doen’t lose to the youngster. He is dressed in a purple robe of a qinwang and he called himself ‘benwang’. It let Yun Qian Meng be curious about his identity.
“This younger one greets wangye! Welcome wangye. This really lets Fu Guo Gong Fu be graced, how can there still be talk about being late?”
Qu Ling Ao recognized that person and immediately greeted with a sincere smile. He, being a duke, bowed to this old man who just came.
The crowd heard Qu Ling Ao’s reminder and saw that Qu Ling Ao is really courteous to this person, their hearts were startled. They didn’t think that today they will see the Chu wang, who people can rarely see. They followed Qu Ling Ao and respectfully saluted: “Greetings to wangye, wangye thousand, thousand, thousand years!”
Seeing everyone salute him, that Chu wang laughed. He said heartily: “Everyone doesn’t need to be so polite. This old one came today, just to ask for a cup of wine from Lao Tai Jun.”
While talking, those shining eyes of Chu wang lightly swept once over Chu Fei Yang. But aside from showing some signs of surprise when Chu wang arrived, Chu Fei Yang returned to his original expression.
“Inviting wangye to follow this young one inside. When mother sees that you’ve came to celebrate, she will certainly be very happy.”
Qu Ling Ao gave Yun Qian Meng a glance to let her follow him closely. He respectfully led Chu wang to Rui Lin yuan.
Yun Xuan Zhi saw that Lao Tai Jun’s face is really big. Even Chu wang, who closed himself for decades, has come. He glared more fiercely at Su Yuan and then rushed to keep up with Qu Ling Ao.
Chu Fei Yang saw that Chu wang went to Fu Guo Gong Fu’s inner yuan, his mind was not at ease. So he also rushed and followed them.
At this moment Jiang Mu Chen couldn’t see Chu Fei Yang and Yun Qian Meng being alone with each other. He coldly swept over the disgraceful Su Yuan. Without a word, he went into the inner yuan.
For a time, the two most stunning women of the men went into the back yard. And the two most handsome men whom the ladies fancy have also gone into the back yard. They felt that it’s uninteresting now. They began to whisper about the embarrassing Su couple.
“Ling brat, your Fu Guo Gong Fu is really popular, ah. It’s not lifeless like my Chu wangfu. There isn’t even a shadow of a woman there.”
All the way, the maids saw that Chu wang has so much spirit; the corners of their eyes didn’t forget to steal a glance at Chu Fei Yang who was walking behind Chu wang.
Chu Fei Yang’s eyes full of deep inquiry, were on Yun Qian Meng.
Qu Ling Ao heard that, felt some shame. He didn’t know why Chu wang has come today. Seeing him so relaxed now, Qu Ling Ao didn’t know how to answer.
“Well, Chu wang is still strong. If wangfu is lifeless, you can take some beautiful women. This adds more life and also more sons.”
How can that pair of eyes of Chu wang which was hiding something, escape Chu Fei Yang’s eyes. Hearing Chu Wang talk about this matter, Chu Fei Yang rebutted him without being polite.
But Chu wang did as if he didn’t hear Chu Fei Yang’s sarcasm. The smiling eyes immediately looked at Yun Qian Meng. Seeing this little girl closely, she is more elegant and refined. The wisdom breathing from that body let Chu wang be endlessly satisfied. He pulled Qu Ling Ao who was between them and stooped beside Yun Qian Meng. He whispered: “Yatou, are you betrothed?”
Since coming to the ancient times, Yun Qian Meng hasn’t seen such a straightforward person. Although this Chu wang has a noble identity, but he is approachable. In particular that pair of smiling eyes didn’t have any schemes in them. So she smiled: “Answering wangye’s question, I don’t.”
Chu wangye seemed very satisfied with Yun Qian Meng’s answer. He nodded and said three times ‘good’. Then he pulled Qu Ling Ao who has been pushed aside, forward. He asked seriously: “Houye, the door of my wangfu isn’t low, right?”
Originally, Qu Ling Ao thought that Chu wang was just casually asking, but now seeing that his eyes is really serious and earnest, his heart made a thump sound. Thinking that Chu wang has passed sixty years and Meng er just got the hairpin (15 years), his heart is calling bad. He was looking for words to refuse, but Yun Xuan Zhi words came from behind: “Wangfu’s door, even my xiangfu’s door is far behind. Wangye is too modest!”
Hearing that Chu wang didn’t answer. Chu Fei Yang frowned. And Chen wang was looking with complex eyes at Yun Qian Meng.
For a time, everyone went silent because of Yun Xuan Zhi’s words.
Is ironic, how YXZ will arrive at the exact moment that YRX is in trouble and he didn’t arrive when YQM was arguing for so long. Besides, he didn’t even hesitate to give YQM away to a sixty year old man. How can a father be like that?
To avoid misunderstanding, Chu wang isn’t asking for himself. He is asking for CFY. In the next chapters, he’ll fight with the Lao Tai Juns for YQM and he thinks CFY is being too passive making him frustrated.
