Reborn: Femme Fatale First Daughter Chapter 534
Chapter 534 Will the Two Maidservants Remain?
This incident finally escalated. Yu Mingyong caused a new incident after the previous one in King Xuan’s Manor. This time it was Minister Lian’s Manor. He not only caused trouble but also beat Lian An. However, this time was different from the previous ones. Yu Mingyong felt that he was on the right side, so when he saw a team of soldiers appearing, he consciously dragged Lian An who was covered in bruises and asked the government to hold justice for him.
Looking at Lian An who panted like a dog due to beating, and then at the large crowd in front of him, the soldiers really couldn’t figure out who was the wronged person, but in fact, they had to deal with the matter. The gate of Lian’s Manor was crooked because of their fight.
With such a big incident and the fact that Minister Lian of the first-rank was still beaten up like that, the whole court’s decency was lost. Emperor Zongwen was furious and immediately called Lian An into the Qianqing Palace. He scolded Lian An and also smashed a full stack of memorials to the throne on Lian An’s head. Lian An couldn’t even say a word because of the smash. He knelt there tremblingly, so scared that he almost fainted, but he claimed that he was wronged.
As things went to this point, it wasn’t Lian An who lost face alone, and the entire dynasty official was disgraced. Emperor Zongwen had to take care of it, and Consort Zhao said that Lian An took in the He brothers, which was equivalent to saving them. Besides, Second Miss He who was said to have connections with Yu Mingyong and Lian An had disappeared again.
This was hard to convict. Consort Yu also came to the Emperor every day and cried to complain that her younger brother was being fooled.
In the end, Emperor Zongwen ordered to demote Lian An from the minister of Ministry of Works to assistant minister. The poorly performing brothers of the He family were expelled from the capital. Yu Mingyong won Emperor Zongwen’s reward this time. He ordered the dissolution of his engagement with Second Miss He and gave him a good marriage, which made Consort Yu smile happily.
She was clear to her younger brother’s matter. She didn’t expect him to marry a girl from a good family. She felt as if her head could be lifted higher.
Of course, thinking of it must be Consort Zhao’s idea to marry He Yuxiu to her younger brother, she was full of hatred. Consort Zhao even dared to make a loose woman marry her younger brother and caused her younger brother to be cuckolded. How could Consort Yu not hate her? She would never spare Consort Zhao.
She thought cruelly in the palace, and Madam Lian was venting her anger outside the palace. She had almost smashed everything in the house. In fact, she had already returned that day. She originally wanted to spend the night on the mountain, but after a while, someone came to report to her that Minister Lian got into trouble.
Hurrying down the mountain, she saw Yu Mingyong clamoring to block Lian An there. Then seeing He Yuxiu’s seductive face, she understood. Sitting in the carriage, she felt as if everything turned dark before her eyes. If it wasn’t for several older maids to pull her, she wouldn’t have contained the urge to rush over and beat him.
“Lian An, I’m working hard for this family, but you, you did this kind of thing avoiding me. Don’t think I don’t know what you and Consort Zhao did. After so many years, the woman has been fine, but I didn’t expect you still miss her and don’t take me seriously.”
Madam Lian was so mad that she snarled like a crazy.
“Dear, dear, don’t say that, don’t say that. It can cause death.” Lian An was so frightened that he felt cold. He hurried over to pull Madam Lian, trying to cover her mouth. “Can this be said? It will cause decapitation.”
“You adulterers will be beheaded. It has nothing to do with me,” Madam Lian shouted and shook off Lian An’s hand. “Don’t think I don’t know, He Yuxiu’s eyes are particularly like hers, and you like Ming Yu and Ming Xia because they look like her. Okay, I will go to the palace now to see the Emperor and ask him to complete your bitter couple. I will ask to quit.”
For so many years, she had been carefully supporting Lian An, and self-disciplined. And instead of being arrogant, she was gentle to people. It was for his sake. She didn’t expect Lian An, who said that he had nothing to do with He Suzhao, to still miss that woman.
How could this not make Madam Lian hate?
“Dear, dear, you can’t really say that. You are killing me. Even if you don’t consider for me, consider for our son, do you want our son to be beheaded, Dear? It was really an accident this time. It was the woman who seduced me. A servant told me that He Yuxiu was found, and I went to have a look. Then I had a meal there, but when I woke up, I was in bed with her… I really don’t know anything. I just wanted to take her here to see her father and uncle.”
Lian An acted, pointed to the sky, and promised, “Dear, 10 years ago, I still have her in my heart, but now, dear, don’t you see it? I only have you and our son in my heart!”
This matter had finally passed now. Lian An hadn’t been relieved yet, and if the relationship between Consort Zhao and him was exposed, he would definitely be killed.
As Lian An looked guilty, begged for mercy, and talked about their son, Madam Lian’s anger slowed down a bit. If Lian An really had a relationship with Consort Zhao in the palace, he would be sentenced to death. If the Emperor was furious, he might even sentence the entire Lian family to death. Thinking of their dear son, Madam Lian felt bitter and hateful.
Immediately she fell to the chair beside her and cried, “Lian An, why did I just fall in love with you, a useless man? When you went to a brothel, you were attracted to that kind of a person. Later, you stopped seeing her, life returned to peace. But you are involved with the He family. If I had known this, I should have listened to my father’s advice to refuse to marry you, in case my son is involved.”
Although she was still crying and cursing at this time, her voice was unconsciously lowered, and after the madness, she knew what she was doing.
Lian An wiped the cold sweat on his forehead, knowing that the important part must have subsided. He immediately came to coax, “Dear, I’m sorry, rest assured, from now on, the whole manor will be in your charge. If you don’t like those concubines, you can drive them away and sell them. As long as you and our son are fine, it doesn’t matter what will happen to me.”
He said in a sincere manner while holding Madam Lian’s hand to slap his bruised face. “Dear, as long as you forgive me, I am willing to do whatever you ask me, but you can’t speak that matter. It doesn’t matter if I die, I don’t want it to affect you and our son. For so many years, you have been with me. I did not make you enjoy your every day but caused such a thing. I am really sorry to you and our son.”
After he finished speaking, he went to the table and picked up the teacup personally, pretending to be very sincere and saying, “Dear, for so many years, you know if I’m good to you. How can you treat me like that when I was deceived? Dear, we married young and we will accompany each other when we are old. I always want to go on like this with you…”
His last word was full of emotion and tears welled up in his eyes.
Even though Madam Lian was full of hatred, thinking of her son and the fact that Lian An was really good to her for so many years, she felt painful and bitter. Tears were flowing down. She directly rushed over, grabbed his clothes, and thumped on him. “Why were you so stupid? It has been so many years; how dare you still have contact with this woman? You are risking our lives for her.”
“Yes, yes, dear, I won’t do it again, but this time it was really the little slut who fooled me.” Lian An put down the teacup and reached out to hug Madam Lian. He coaxed her and promised.
Madam Lian finally finished venting her anger. She sat in a chair, gasped, and asked Lian An, “Was it really that little slut who fooled you?”
“Dear, how can you not believe me? If I really wanted to do something, I would do when this little slut appeared specifically in our manor… Why should I wait until now to make such a thing?” Lian An said hurriedly.
In fact, he really thought about it, but He Yuxiu didn’t like him at that time, and there was Consort Zhao in the palace, so Lian An was really afraid to do too much. As a result, he only kindly and friendly talked to He Yuxiu for a while.
Not knowing what he thought, Madam Lian nodded and said, “Well, since that’s the case, I believe in you again, I hope this won’t happen next time. If you see that little bitch, just directly beat her do death. No matter what, it’s indeed true that you are related to her now.”
“Rest assured, dear, when I meet the little bitch, I will never spare her. This is all her fault. I’ll send someone to investigate,” Lian An said coldly. Under the lights, his swollen face was gloomy and ugly. This was all caused by He Yuxiu. If the Emperor in the palace knew the reason he had He Yuxiu by his side, his entire family would be destroyed.
His mind was now full of his own career; he didn’t care what soft words He Yuxiu said in his arms. As long as he thought that the existence of He Yuxiu might expose Consort Zhao and his secrets, he wanted to kill her. There was no warmth in his heart now.
“Since you have decided, I won’t say anything. What are you going to do with Ming Yu and Ming Xia, the two bitches?” Seeing his expression, Madam Lian knew that he really wanted to kill He Yuxiu. She felt relieved in her heart. She had been with Lian An for so many years, so of course, she knew that Lian An looked gentle on the surface, but he was actually vicious, and would not leave his enemy alive. So she changed the subject, stared at Lian An and asked.
“It’s up to you.” Seeing his wife staring at him closely, Lian An had to ignore the grievance in his heart and hurriedly said. If he answered slowly at this time, Madam Lian would make a scene. He had been taking a fancy on the two maids, but he didn’t get a chance to take action. At this point, he had to respond to his wife.
“Okay, since you said that, tomorrow I will ask a trafficker to sell them a good price. According to their coquettish looks, I think they can sell a good price,” Madam Lian said coldly, staring at Lian An with a fierce gaze, as if he was a little bit unwilling, she would pounce on him to bite.
Selling a good price? In which place could she get a good price for them? It was in the brothel. Thinking that the beautiful girls were going to be sold to the brothel, Lian An trembled with heartache, but he didn’t dare to show it on his face. He carelessly said, “Dear, let alone a brothel, even if they are sold to those private places, I do not care. I only have you in my heart.”
Madam Lian’s anger turned to happiness. She was no longer angry. She got up, picked up the medicine on the corner of the table, put the medicine on Lian An’s face. After Yu Mingyong’s beating, and then the Emperor’s smash with the stack of memorials, Lian An’s face had already been swollen like a pig’s head and looked really ugly.
At the dark corner outside the door, two trembling girls helped each other to go out, not daring to make a sound. As lights falling on their faces from the edge of the window, one could find that their faces had no trace of blood. They didn’t expect Madam Lian who had been gentle and a little jealous to be such a vicious person. They now only wanted to escape as soon as possible
