Chapter 916 Palace Maids Who Teach
“Actually, Countess Yong could take responsibility for this matter!” Mr. Liu said meaningfully.
This time, Mr. Liu not only attracted Duke Yong and Di Rufeng’s attention but also attracted Chu Liuyue’s attention. Chu Liuyue asked, “What do you mean?”
“Your Highness, what I just said is the worst plan. Now, this matter has just started. If Princess goes to the yamen and takes responsibility for it, saying that it is just a misunderstanding, the Emperor will not dig too deep in this matter. He would think it is just a dispute of the inner court between the mother-in-law and daughter-in-law and he does not have that much energy to deal with the matters in the backyard!” Mr. Liu said.
“A dispute between the mother-in-law and the daughter-in-law?” Chu Liuyue repeated. Then his eyes lit up, and he couldn’t help clapping his hands, saying, “Great, great!”
If it was a dispute between the mother-in-law and the daughter-in-law, then it would be the least serious matter. Even if it was a scandal, it was impossible for the Emperor to carefully investigate such a trivial dispute between the mother-in-law and the daughter-in-law that happened in the backyard.
“But… who should take the responsibility for this?” Di Rufeng said in a pained voice. He had a bad feeling.
“Of course, Countess Yong will suffer from some grievances to admit that it was her mistake. Comfort the Princess. I heard that Prince doesn’t treat Princess well, so you should ask Prince to accompany Countess Yong to go and persuade Princess to withdraw her complaint from the yamen. Whoever started the trouble should end it. That’s the best!” Mr. Liu analyzed.
“But the reputation…” Di Rufeng said in a low voice. Although he had no special feelings for Countess Yong, if Countess Yong took the blame, it would inevitably involve him and affect the reputation of the entire Duke Yong’s Mansion.
Moreover, in this case, Countess Yong would end up meditating in the Buddha Hall if she was not divorced.
It was not that he felt bad about making Countess Yong meditate in the Buddha Hall, but because most of these girls he kept were managed by Countess Yong and Old Madam. If Countess Yong was unhappy and made a scene about it, it would be a big deal!
“My wife knows that I’ve been keeping a group of girls, and she oversees it. If she takes the responsibility this time, I’m afraid… I’m afraid that she will make a big deal out of it!” Di Rufeng said unpleasantly.
He had to say that.
Mr. Liu thought for a moment and said, “If that’s the case, maybe you… you will have to do more things!”
“What… what kind of things?” Di Rufeng asked, and his face changed dramatically.
After a pause, Mr. Liu said, “After Countess Yong invite the Princess back, Countess Yong could pretend to fall ill and couldn’t even get up. In this way, there will be less talking about Duke Yong’s Mansion and the Emperor won’t suspect us!”
“Uh… okay!” Di Rufeng said with his hands trembling.
“Duke Yong, I will remember your kindness. Don’t worry. I will only need your wife to look sick, and nothing should happen to her. If there is a chance in the future, I will definitely make your son an official. After all, I am grateful to the Duke Yong’s Mansion!” Chu Liuyue stood up, bowed deeply to Di Rufeng, and said to him.
How could Di Rufeng dare to accept his courtesy? He hurriedly leaned to avoid it and said with a bitter and mixed expression on his face, “I’m at your command, Your Highness!”
What else could he do at the moment? He could only do what Prince Yue wanted. Otherwise, the whole mansion could not bear the anger of the Emperor. He had done this kind of thing for Prince Yue earlier. In fact, he was on Prince Yue’s side. But Prince Yue had not yet become the new emperor, so it would be a disaster for his family if the Emperor found out he chose the other side.
Compared to his wife, the execution of his entire family was much more horrifying…
It was dark. Chu Liuchen got up from the darkness. He looked at the petite girl in his arms and then walked over quietly. He put on the outdoor robe, and when he got outside, Xiao Xuanzi had already been waiting outside.
“How is it going?” Chu Liuchen stood in the yard with his hands clasped behind his back and asked coldly.
“Everything is ready. Don’t worry, master!” Xiao Xuanzi said in a low voice.
“What about Chu Liuzhou?” Chu Liuchen asked with cold eyes.
“The matter has been exposed. Prince Zhou is still awake and so is Prince Yue. Duke Yong has entered Prince Yue’s Mansion and hasn’t come out yet!” Xiao Xuanzi said.
Chu Liuchen raised his head. Under the moonlight, his handsome face showed a trace of coldness and cruelty that he had hidden in the past. At the moment, he was more like an elegant Asura looking down at the world in his cold eyes.
When Shao Wanru told him that Chu Liuyue was Fanglan Embroidery Shop’s secret boss, everything had been set up. He had been waiting for a suitable opportunity to reveal it.
Chu Liuyue would inevitably avoid trouble, but no matter how hard he tried, it would be difficult for him to adapt to the volatile situation. Moreover, Chu Liuzhou was cruel, and he had also been keeping an eye on Chu Liuyue…
When Shao Wanru woke up, Chu Liuchen was nowhere to be seen.
She guessed that he went to practice martial arts. After marrying into Prince Chen’s Mansion, she knew that although Chu Liuchen looked a little weak, like a sick noble young master, in fact, he had good health. Especially, he began practicing martial arts at an early age. Although he was interrupted from time to time due to his illness later, generally he had been keeping this habit for many years.
Moreover, his martial arts skills were quite good!
This reminded Shao Wanru of an incident that happened a long time ago. At that time, Chu Liuchen climbed over the wall to look for her.
Hearing Shao Wanru’s voice, Yujie and Qu Le immediately came in to serve her.
“Where is the Prince?” Shao Wanru sat in front of the dressing table and asked. It was getting late and there were no elders in Prince Chen’s Mansion that Shao Wanru had to greet. She felt embarrassed that she went to bed so late recently. She went to bed after they talked for a long time yesterday.
“Prince has already had breakfast. He said you can have breakfast by yourself. He went to deal with the affairs in the front yard!” Yujie answered with a smile.
Before their master got married into Prince Chen’s Mansion, Yujie and Qu Le were a little worried, but now all their worries were gone. Prince Chen really cared about their master. Princess was the only one that he cared about, and there were no other girls. Moreover, all the servants serving Prince were eunuchs. There was never any young girl close to him.
Thinking of this, Yujie suddenly thought of something and said, “Miss, the supervisor asked for your opinion about how to deal with the two palace maids.”
“The palace maids?” Shao Wanru froze for a moment and did not catch what she meant.
Her confusion was completely different from her usual shrewdness and powerfulness. In fact, she looked like a little girl now. The two servant girls couldn’t help laughing.
“Princess, they are the two girls sent from the palace to teach Prince how to consummate his marriage!” Qu Le explained with a red face.
Her words were obscure. Shao Wanru blinked her eyes twice, suddenly realized what they meant, and couldn’t help blushing.
“What did Prince say?” Shao Wanru asked.
“Prince said it’s for you to decide. If you don’t like them, you can throw them out of the mansion straight away!” Yujie said with a smile.
How could she like this kind of girls? Shao Wanru rolled her eyes secretly. A legal wife who had just married into the mansion would never like these girls who taught her husband how to consummate his marriage.
Fortunately, Chu Liuchen did not allow them to get close. He left them in a secluded courtyard since Empress sent them over.
But the current situation was indeed a bit difficult to deal with.
“Princess, I heard that the two palace maids both have powerful backgrounds. That’s why they can get into Prince Chen’s Mansion. They are unlike the palace maids sent by the Empress in the past; those maids were directly thrown out or even killed!” Yujie said in a low voice.
Before Shao Wanru got up, Yujie specially inquired about the two palace maids. She had heard that previously none of the palace maids could stay in Prince Chen’s Mansion. What backgrounds did they have?
“What do you mean?” Shao Wanru asked curiously.
If they were ordinary palace maids, they could not stay in Prince Chen’s Mansion. According to her understanding of Chu Liuchen, he would not listen to anyone’s advice. If he wanted to throw them out, he would. If they made him unhappy and dared to seduce him, they would not even get out of the Prince Chen’s Mansion alive.
With such a bad reputation, no palace maid dared to come to Prince Chen’s Mansion after that.
“Princess, I’ve inquired about it. One of the two palace maids was sent by Empress Dowager, and the other was chosen by the Empress. The one sent by Empress Dowager seems to be related to Nanny Wei. She seems to be Nanny Wei’s niece. Although the relationship is far-fetched, she is related to Nanny Wei. The Empress Dowager also likes her very much in the past,” Yujie said.
“The palace maid sent by the Empress also has something to do with the Empress. She seems to be a relative of the Empress’ family. Her ancestor was a palace official. Later, something happened, and her whole family became servants. The Empress pitied her and left her in the palace. Now she is favored by the Empress!” Yujie added.
Shao Wanru’s eyes darkened, so both of them had powerful backgrounds and could not be treated as before.
“They want to see me?” Shao Wanru’s watery eyes were slightly cold, and she had an idea in her mind. No one had mentioned this matter in the past few days. It could be seen that these two people had been restraining themselves. Now they couldn’t restrain themselves anymore?
“According to the supervisor, it seems to be true!” Yujie said with anger.
Their identities were unusual, so it was not easy to deal with them. Thinking that her master had just married into the mansion and there was already so much trouble, Yujie was angry on behalf of Shao Wanru.
No matter what, they were just two palace maids. It was impossible for them to get superior to Princess.
“Let them be. I don’t have time for them now!” Shao Wanru waved her hand lazily and said. Not everybody could meet her at their will. “Do they really think they have become superior to me?” Shao Wanru sneered in her mind.
She didn’t care what their backgrounds were. Since they got into Prince Chen’s Mansion, they had to obey the rules of Prince Chen’s Mansion. Of course, it would be better if they got anxious.
Subconsciously, she knew that these two palace maids were not ordinary people. They were closely related to the Empress Dowager and the Empress. If they were ordinary people, they would not be sent into the mansion. “What are they after? Is it only Chu Liuchen? They know that Chu Liuchen would not like them. Even if they are backed by the Empress Dowager and the Empress, so what?
“Then, why did they enter the mansion?
“Are they trying to drive a wedge between the Empress Dowager and Chu Liuchen, or are they trying to drive a wedge between me and Chu Liuchen, or do they have other purposes?” Shao Wanru wondered.
At present, she was not sure, so she decided to stay calm and deal with it. She wanted to see if the two palace maids who got into Prince Chen’s Mansion would feel anxious!
Anyway, they would feel anxious, and she just needed to bide her time…
