Revenge of the First Daughter - Chapter 285
Chapter 285 Flat Wife Status
The next morning, a mist enveloped the entire horizon. A fiery red sun slowly rose from the horizon, illuminating the entire world. Strands of sunlight scattered down, slowly blowing away the mist in the air.
Yun Xiao slowly exhaled a breath and quickly walked towards the master bedroom. She saw that Madam Lu and Yun Maozhe had already woken up. At this moment, they had already washed up and were sitting at a table, waiting for Yun Xiao to eat.
Yun Xiao smiled in surprise and said, “How is Mother’s body?”
Madam Lu was a little shy and nodded her head gently. “It’s almost done. I made you all worry yesterday.”
Yun Xiao pounced forward and hugged Madam Lu’s arm in a spoiled manner. “I’m worried that she’s not a legitimate mother.” She felt a little sad in her heart. If she went a step later, then Madam Lu would really be in trouble at that time.
Looking at Madam Lu with a gentle smile, she was indescribably satisfied.
Madam Lu rubbed Yunxiao’s hair and whispered, “Since you’re here, let’s eat first. At this moment, everyone is hungry.”
Yun Xiao looked at the table. It was filled with delicacies, and she was happy in her heart.
After accompanying her parents for breakfast, Yun Xiao winked at Yun Maozhe.
Only then did Yun Maozhe say, “Yun Niang, Xiao Xiao told you yesterday, what do you think about letting Brother Yang marry Second Miss Lan?”
Madam Lu was stunned. She did not expect that Yun Maozhe would actually ask about this topic. Her expression was low. “It’s all up to Master’s will. If Master does not agree, I will definitely not agree.”
“Xiaoxiao has already told me about this matter. I agree. Although this method is very vicious, we are all thinking about Second Miss Lan.” Yun Maozhe said this with a helpless expression.
Madam Lu was shocked by Yun Maozhe’s words. She raised her head and stared at him blankly, “You agree?”
“That’s right. Leave this matter to Xiaoxiao. You can rest.” After experiencing so many things, Yun Maozhe didn’t have the slightest bit of hatred towards leaving things to Yun Lai to do.
After Yun Xiao sent Lu shi and Yun Maozhe away, she heard Steward Li come to report that the Taoist priests they had invited had arrived.
Yun Xiao asked Butler Li to bring the Taoist priest to Yun Yao’s courtyard first. After putting on her cape, Yun Xiao brought Qing Mo and Chun Lan to Yun Yao’s courtyard as well.
Along the way, they arrived at the courtyard very quickly. Yun Xiao saw five Taoist priests. At this moment, four Taoist priests were standing in four directions with peach wood swords in their hands. The other Taoist priest wore a ghost mask on his face. He pointed at the peach wood sword and continuously danced in the courtyard to expel ghosts.
Yun Xiao stood at the entrance of the courtyard and looked at everything in the courtyard. She chuckled and said, “Look at this Taoist priest, he did a good job.”
Hearing this, Chun Mei’s face turned slightly pale. She believed in ghosts and gods, but judging from the girl’s appearance, she didn’t seem to believe it.
Hearing Yun Xiao’s words, Qing Mo’s ice-like face also became slightly loose.
By the time the french ritual was over, it would be less than half an hour later.
The Daoist Priest in the middle had a serious expression as he walked to Yun Xiao’s side, looking like he was about to say something.
Yun Xiao asked Chun Lan to give them a bag of silver and said, “May I know what Chun Lan has to say?”
The Taoist priest carefully put away the silver and said loudly, “Thank you, young lady. The dirty air in this courtyard has been expelled by the Poverty Taoist. However, the third young lady of the mansion can’t stay here anymore.”
“Why is this?” Yun Xiao was surprised, as if she didn’t know anything.
The Taoist priest stroked his beard. He said softly, “The manor’s third young lady is a dragon and phoenix among men, Wangfu Wangziwang Clan, However, these blessings would not come until they were married, Furthermore, to be honest with Fourth Young Lady, “The Third Young Lady of the manor has gone through this ordeal. She has an aura that is hard for ordinary people to detect. This aura can keep ghosts away. However, there is something filthy in this courtyard. Although she dares not approach the Third Young Lady, she has been staring at the Third Young Lady. If you don’t want anything to happen in the manor, the Fourth Young Lady should let the Third Young Lady leave this place first.”
Hearing this, Yun Xiao’s face turned pale. She unconsciously took a step back and said with a frightened expression, “Thank you for your guidance, Master.”
After sending all these Taoist priests away, Yun Xiao instructed Chun Lan, “Go and learn from my father everything that the Taoist priest said just now.”
Chun Lan immediately trotted away.
At this moment, Yun Xiao’s expression had returned to normal. She squinted towards Qing Mo and said, “Have you done what I asked you to do?”
Qing Mo said respectfully, “Don’t worry about me.”
At the same time, there was a rumor circulating throughout the capital that the eldest young master of the Shen Clan had run into a ghost last night. He was possessed by a fierce ghost and could not be driven away by the Taoist priest. This ghost occupied the eldest young master of the Shen Clan and was unwilling to leave. The eldest young master of the Shen Clan was also unconscious.
It was only one morning that everyone in the streets and alleys knew about this matter.
Just as the rumors spread, a few Taoist priests walked out of the Yun Clan and said, “This Shen Clan’s Third Young Lady’s life is really good! Not to mention the Wangfu Wangziwang Clan, even with the help of immortals, even harsh ghosts are afraid!”
This time, these words had only been spoken for half an hour, and they had already spread throughout the capital.
Yun Xiao counted the hours and went to the main courtyard to talk to Madam Lu.
At this moment, Qiushuang walked in carefully and said respectfully, “Madam, Madam Shen is here.”
When Yun Xiao heard that Madam Shen had come, the corner of her mouth unconsciously hooked into a faint smile. She waved her hand at Qiushuang and said, “Since Madam Shen has come, please invite Madam Shen in.”
After Qiu Shuang went down, Madam Lu looked at Yun Xiao with a bitter smile on her face, “You can go inside and sit for a while.”
Yun Xiao nodded and walked into the inner room. However, before she left, she did not forget to remind him, “Mother, did you remember what I said?”
Madam Lu replied, then waved her hand and said to the smiling Yun Xiao, “Why don’t you hurry in? Otherwise, Mrs. Shen would have already come.”
As soon as Yun Xiao’s figure disappeared from the room, she saw Madam Shen, who was dressed in a lake jade-colored Jade Cloud Pattern with beads facing the peacock brocade, walking in.
Madam Shen’s face was painted with exquisite makeup just like the last time she entered the Yun Clan. However, this makeup was slightly awkward.
After entering, she saw Madam Lu taking a sip with her teacup in hand. She smiled and said, “I heard that Madam Yun’s health is not good these past few days. I just got a hundred-year-old ginseng in these past few days. It just so happens that I can help Madam Yun recover her body.”
The Yun Clan is rich, do you want anything? Therefore, Madam Shen thought about it at home for a long time before finally deciding. In the end, she gave a hundred-year-old ginseng. Although she felt pain in her flesh, she had to grind her teeth to give it to her son.
This hundred-year-old ginseng was not common, and it could be given to the Yun Clan.
Madam Lu did not look at the brocade box in the hands of the maidservant behind Madam Shen. She only smiled and said, “A noble lady like Madam Shen can come to our Yun Mansion because she thinks highly of our Yun Clan. I dare not accept a gift.”
She still remembered the matter of Madam Shen coming to the Yun Clan to retreat from Xiaoxiao’s marriage. At that time, Madam Shen had given them enough embarrassment. If she did not save some face today, Madam Lu would not agree.
Madam Shen’s expression turned awkward when she saw Madam Lu’s words. However, she still walked forward and smiled. “Madam Yun is really good at joking. The girls in the mansion are all dragons and phoenixes amongst humans. The last time they left the family, it was our Shen Clan’s fault. Didn’t I come here today to apologize?”
Madam Lu even smiled and said, “Apologize? It’s been two months. What kind of apology are you going to say?”
“As the saying goes, enemies are better resolved than formed. I am here to sincerely apologize. I hope that Madam Yun will forget about the past because of the relationship between our ancestors, right?” Madam Shen knew that she was in the wrong this time. If it weren’t for Shen Yingfan, she would have already broken her sleeve and left. But for her son, she could only endure it.
Normally, she always listened to how virtuous Lu Clan was. She thought that she had come to give the Yun Clan face so that they could not wait to marry their daughter to Shen Yingfan. However, judging from Lu Clan’s expression, she felt that something was wrong.
‘”The relationship between the two ancestors? I still remember two months ago, Madam Shen did not say that.” Although Madam Lu’s temperament was gentle, she naturally knew what she should know. Moreover, if it wasn’t for the fact that the Shen family had withdrawn from their marriage, why would her daughter have been pointed at all the time? ”
“Madam Yun, it was really my fault that day. Please don’t be angry. Today, for the sake of the children, we will each step back. How about it?” Madam Shen was able to manage the Shen Clan in an orderly manner in the Shen Clan, so she still had some methods.
“Oh? According to what you mean, how does Madam Shen intend for me to concede?” Madam Lu choked on Madam Shen for a few times. The anger she had been suppressing had finally dissipated a little. However, the words she said were filled with dense sarcasm.
Madam Shen’s face turned green and pale. “Madam Yun also knows that our Shen Clan is going to marry a girl from Duke Xiao’s Mansion. This matter has been discussed again. We can only wronge Third Young Lady as a concubine.” Seeing Madam Lu’s uncertain expression, she continued, “Actually, this is not bad. No matter what Third Young Lady says, she is just a concubine.”
“What’s wrong with the concubine? Isn’t the concubine’s daughter from my Yun Clan? My Yun family’s daughter is never a concubine, “Lu shi threw the teacup in her hand heavily on the table and sneered at Madam Shen,” to discuss marriage with the Duke of Xiao Manor? Mrs. Shen, are you looking down on my Yun Family’s girl? I remember the eldest young master of the Shen Clan a few days ago, but he kept saying that he wanted to marry Yao’er as his main wife. Why did the Shen Clan go back on their word after just a few days? Aren’t the Shen Clan afraid that the world will poke your bones? ”
If Yun Xiao hadn’t told her about these things earlier, Madam Lu wouldn’t have tried so hard to fight for Yun Yao’s seat. Moreover, she had always been puzzled in her heart. How could she have such a request for her daughter, who was inappropriate to Yun Yao?
However, Madam Lu’s words were well known to everyone, making Madam Shen unable to refute them.
Madam Shen was scolded by Madam Lu, and her expression was extremely embarrassed. She wished to tear down Yun Mansion. “Then what should Madam Yun say?”
Madam Lu smiled faintly. “Since your Shen Clan has also said that they want to discuss marriage with Duke Xiao’s Manor, our Yun Clan is a merchant’s house and cannot compare to Duke Xiao’s Manor, so we will not fight. However, I want to earn a flat wife position for Yao’er and marry Yao’er with the gift of a flat wife. If Madam Shen does not agree, there is no need to talk about this matter.”
Madam Shen’s face hesitated. She did not like Yun Yao, but her son was still lying on the bed. In just one night’s time, he was no longer human. She did not dare to delay any longer. She was afraid that a ghost would kill her son at that time.
After thinking for a while, he could only clench his teeth and agree, “Alright, I agree.”
Looking at Madam Shen’s changing face, Madam Lu felt a little happy in her heart. After Madam Shen left, Yun Xiao happened to walk in. Madam Lu couldn’t help but feel curious, “Xiaoxiao, why did you fight for Yun Yao’s wife’s seat today?”
Although Madam Lu was kind-hearted, she knew that Yun Yao had robbed her husband, who was supposed to be her daughter.
Madam Lu’s heart had always been on edge in response to this.
“Mother will know in a few days.” After Yun Xiao finished speaking, she pressed Madam Lu down and sat down. “Mother, your body is not fully recovered yet. We have already done what we should do. The rest will depend on Third Sister’s good fortune.”
At this moment, Qiushuang said outside, “Fourth young miss, third young miss wants to see you!”
