Pampered Poisonous Royal Wife - Chapter 348
~ THIS IS SO STUNNED ~
Shen Binghuai’s expression did not loosen the slightest: “Lord Su is of a higher rank than this official. This official does not have the right to investigate rashly. I still need to report this matter to the Emperor and ask for his permission.”
“Alright, the commotion in the house is really ominous. I’ll send Lord Shen out.” Su Wenyuan nodded. Now that things had developed to this point, he couldn’t hide it anymore, even if he wanted to. The group of idle censors might already be writing their reports, so he had to think of a way to salvage the situation.
Shen Bingshuai took two steps before he suddenly stopped and said to Su Qing and Mu Yunyao, “If Your Majesty allows us to investigate this matter, we will need Madam Su and Miss Mu’s cooperation in the coming period of time. The maidserevants under Miss Mu are important witnesses, and I hope that Miss Mu can restrict them further.”
Mu Yunyao bowed towards Shen Binghuai with gratitude in her eyes. “Yes, please be at ease Lord Shen. I’ll take care of the maids under my command and won’t let anything happen to them.”
Shen Binghuai asked Yun Chun, Jin Lan, and others to be witnesses. So, if anyone wanted to cause trouble for them in the following time, they would have a purpose to intimidate a witness, and it would be the truth. With just a single word from him, she could openly save Jin Lan, Yun Chun, and others.
Shen Binghuai nodded, turned around, and followed Su Wenyuan out of the East Courtyard.
The Old Madam Sun’s face suddenly turned ugly. She looked around the messy courtyard and said to the Eldest Madam coldly, “Although the matter has yet to be decided, I do not dare leave the matters of the residence to you anymore. From today onwards, the authority to manage the household will be transferred to the Second Madam. Have someone hand over all the book accounts and keys to her, and You will be staying at ease in the East Courtyard to recite a prayer and pray. Without my orders, you could not easily come out again.”
The Eldest Madam’s expression was extremely unsightly. She had lost her authority to manage the household and had been ordered to restrict her movements. It could be said to have lost all face. “Yes, Mother.”
The Old Madam turned her head to look at Su Qing and Mu Yunyao. Her tone was much gentler, but her eyes were filled with ice as she said, “You two can go back to Jiyue Pavilion. I will have the doctor come over later to help you take a look at your injuries. He also comes over to take a look at Yun Chun, Jin Lan, and the rest. It is expressly rare for these girls to protect their master loyally, and this is hard to come by.”
Mu Yunyao nodded. “Thank you, Grandmother. But, that 80,000 silver bill … If Eldest Uncle and Aunt has a tight hand, I can extend the time for a few more days. However, we’ve already found a place for Ni Yun Fang and Bu Xian Luo. We are waiting for the silver to start anew and began to renovated.”
The Eldest Madam’s gaze was cold as she stared at Mu Yunyao. “Don’t deceive others too much.You know exactly what happened the two hundred thousand taels of silver banknotes? You should be clear in your heart!”
Mu Yunyao seemed to have received a shock and frightened, so she slightly quivered. She raised her head and looked at the Old Madam, “Grandmother, look at Eldest Aunt….”
The Old Madam Sun’s face darkened. After coldly sweeping a gaze at Mu Yunyao, she said to Eldest Madam, “Eldest Daughter-in-law, give Yao’er the eighty thousand taels of silver. Since it’s not your own money, you should be afraid of getting burned if you keep it in your hands! The noise in the yard was outrageous, so I should hurriedly order people to clean it up and tidy up. My head really hurts so badly, so I’ll head back to Ninghe Yuan first.”
“Respectfully send off Grandmother.”
When the Old Madam left, the Eldest Madam raised her head and looked at Mu Yunyao with a venomous expression. “Mu Yunyao, you should be proud of yourself now!” At first, she thought that it would be foolproof against Mu Yunyao, but unexpectedly, nothing happened to Mu Yunyao at all. Instead, she suffered heavy losses and didn’t benefit her in any way. Even she lost the authority to manage the household and was grounded. She would still have to pay eighty thousand silver taels!
Mu Yunyao raised her hand and gently caressed her cheek. “The slap from Eldest Aunt before was really ruthless. I’m afraid this bruise will only disappear after the Autumn Hunt. I really don’t understand what you’re thinking, Eldest Aunt. In any case, I was asked by the Emperor to participate in the September Autumn Hunt. Aren’t you afraid that the Emperor will pursue this matter after you openly made a move against me?”
The Eldest Madam trembled all over with anger. She naturally knew that Mu Yunyao will participate in the Autumn Hunt, but she didn’t put in her heart. The Emperor had only set a precedent for her on a whim, so how could he possibly value her?
Seeing the Eldest Madam’s expression, Mu Yunyao chuckled, “But I still have to thank Eldest Aunt. If you hadn’t intervened today, then I wouldn’t have been able to live a peaceful life in the future. From now on, Mother and I can finally live in the Su family safely. ”
“You … You… You bitch!” The Eldest Madam wished she could tear Mu Yunyao apart. However, it was indeed, as she said, from today onwards, no one in the Su family would dare to slight them. After all, the Eldest Madam, who had been in charge of the Su family for so many years, had easily capsized. Who would be so unlucky as to go against her?
Mu Yunyao chuckled, “How can Eldest Aunt say something so vulgar? Aren’t you afraid to teach Elder Sister Yuyi bad things? I remember now that the Emperor ordered all the young ladies should attend the Autumn Hunt in September, presumably to let Grand Princess Yi De take a closer look at many young ladies ’ temperaments.
“During the Mid-Autumn Festival banquet before, Elder Sister Yuyi had won first place, attracting the admiration of everyone. Originally, the chances of being chosen by Grand Princess Yi De was extremely high, but now that her arm has been broken, I’m afraid she won’t have the fortune to do so.”
The Eldest Madam heavily panted as she felt her chest suffocating. She stared at Mu Yunyao for a long while before she actually couldn’t catch a breath and fainted on the spot.
Su Qingwu quickly stepped forward to catch her, raising his head and looking at Mu Yunyao with a solemn gaze.
How could she pass out just like that?
In her heart, Mu Yunyao felt that it was a pity. After coming in contact with Su Qingwu’s line of sight, she smiled: “Cousin, why are you looking at me like that?”
“Yunyao, do you have to make a ruckus until the fishes die and the net breaks?”
“I don’t know if the net is broken or not, but the fish definitely aren’t going to die. It’s like what Eldest Aunt said, I grew up in the countryside. I’m from a lowly background, but my life is very hard. Even if I lay a net, I have to be able to cover me!” Mu Yunyao’s gaze was cold, while her black and white eyes emitted an imposing aura. Formless killing intent and evil spirits surged out, causing Su Qingwu to feel a chill in his heart.
Su Qingwu was a little tongue-tied for a while, and then he said, “We are all one family, and our blood is connected. If the Su family has fallen down, it will not be good for you….”
Mu Yunyao laughed coldly and smiled at Su Qingwu, a strange light flashing across her eyes: How can there not be any benefits? As long as the Su family is unlucky, she will be happy. If she is happy, she can earn more silver taels. Isn’t that a benefit?
“It’s getting late. Mother, let’s go back.”
Su Qing nodded. She also did not want to continue staying in the East Courtyard. Looking at the Eldest Madam’s face, she felt an inexplicable sense of sympathy for her. Family members, blood relatives, all of these were just jokes. It was only when she really got involved that she realized the unique indifference and cruelty of the Su family.
