Doctor Lin applied the ointment onto Li Chang Xi as she stared at him with a hopeful gaze.
The doctor sighed and said, “Wu xiaojie, it’s impossible for your face to heal and look as it was before.”
Li Chang Xi’s expression immediately changed. She smashed the tea cup on the ground and sobbed. Si yiniang Zhou shi and Li Chang Xiao hurriedly rushed over with a handkerchief in hand.
Da furen’s cold eyes glanced over Siyiniang Zhou shi. Zhou shi came from Jiang Nan. She spoke with elegance and genteel. Even the way she behaved was delicate. She was talented in poetry and artwork. Furthermore, she had a curvy and voluptuous figure which was very attractive, even after she gave birth to Li Chang Xiao and Li Chang Xi. Therefore, she was doted on by Li Xiao Ran.
Looking at these mother-daughter trio, Li Zhang Le slightly furrowed her eyebrows. Nonetheless, the slight movement of the eyebrows caused Doctor Lin to take in a sharp breath. No wonder everyone was always saying the Prime Minister’s first daughter was beautiful like a fairy. They were definitely right.
Da furen softly coughed, causing Doctor Lin to snap out of his daze.
“Doctor Lin, Wu mei still hasn’t married. A woman’s beauty is very important to her. Please do everything you can to help. Also, you must keep this a secret so that words don’t get around.” Li Zhang Le’s tone was gentle and fluid.
Doctor Lin thought, not only was Da xiaojie remarkably beautiful, she was also very kind-hearted. The combination was such a rare sight. He clasped his hands together and said, “Da xiaojie, regarding Wu xiaojie’s scar, I will definitely do everything that I can. As for keeping this matter a secret, this isn’t the first time I’ve worked for Li jia. Da xiaojie, please do not worry.”
Li Zhang Le nodded then instructed a servant to lead the doctor out.
In the room, the sobbing was still going on.
“What are you crying about? Haven’t you scared enough people?” Da furen stonily asked.
Li Chang Xi was aggravated. She was bawling to the point it was hard to breathe. Beside her, Si yiniang witnessed the scene with pain. There was resentment in her eyes.
“Furen, this time you must avenge for Chang Xi!”
Da furen slammed the tea cup on the table. Her expression was one of anger. “Avenge, avenge! All you know is to avenge. This is because Wu yatou messed up, otherwise, things wouldn’t turn out this way either.”
Si yiniang froze then tears began to fall from her eyes, aggrieved.
Da furen hated this face of Si yiniang the most. The only reason she was being tolerant of these three was because she had a use for them later on.
“Si yiniang, there’s no need to agonize. Mother didn’t say she would ignore you guys either. However, San mei is really too good at her speeches. Not to mention, father has trust in San mei’s innocence as well. Even if mother wants to defend Wu mei, there is nothing else she can do,” Li Zhang Le placated. Her words were obviously targeting Li Wei Yang.
As expected, Si yiniang had a look of hatred.
It was clear that it was Xiao Wu who had bothered San jie first. Consequently, she brought about her own Karma. The corner of Si xiaojie, Li Chang Xiao’s mouth twitched, but she couldn’t utter a word.
Da furen’s tone became a lot friendlier. “Wu yatou grew up beside me. To see her wounded like this, how I can not feel pain? I didn’t expect for Wei Yang, despite her young age, to be so vicious and wicked. Now she has ruined Wu yatou’s beauty. Haiz, but right now, she is lao furen’s confidant. Laoye has trust in her as well. Even if I have something in mind, I won’t be able to use it. You guys go back first. Give me some time to think this through thoroughly.”
Si yiniang suppressed the feeling of resentment and helped Li Chang Xi up. Li Chang Xiao turned and glanced at Da furen, who was sitting inside the room. She felt that, even though Da furen had a kind face on, but under the light, somehow she seemed extremely cold.
Li Zhang Le watched the retreating figures as her gaze became icy. “Mother, what happened today. . .”
Da furen grinded her teeth together with loathe. “I did not expect for this San yatou to be such a dangerous character!”
“If mother wants to make it difficult for her, there are plenty of methods. We should wait for an opportunity when lao furen and father are not at home and all we have to do is directly kill her.” Li Zhang Le casually enjoyed a cup of tea, but her voice sounded like she was killing an ant. If there was an outsider in the room right now, they would not be able to believe those vicious words could come out of the famous and beautiful Da xiaojie of the Prime Minister’s estate.
“Even though your father doesn’t say it outright, but he is already suspicious of me. If I do something right now, I will be giving others the opportunity to grab a hold of my weakness. I will lose more than I gain. It’s better to let someone else do the dirty work.”
The daughter naturally is the one to understand the mother best. Li Zhang Le had obviously guessed Da furen’s intention. Smiling, she said, “Si yiniang is quite the devil. Will she let us manipulate her?”
Normally she wouldn’t but the circumstance right now. . . Da furen smiled.
Wu xiaojie getting into an incident, Da xiaojie was the most concerned for every day she came to visit. Not only that, she also prepared the meals. She was regretful for not taking better care of her little sister. She had even taken the bird’s nest that Da furen had given to her, thoroughly prepared it, and brought it over to Li Chang Xi. Everyone saw it. They felt that Da xiaojie was even more compassionate and open-minded.
During this time, nothing happened to Li Wei Yang. She slept and ate normally. She was not worried about Da furen or Si yiniang bothering her because she understood Li Xiao Ran’s personality. After this incident, this Prime Minister father of her will know that there was someone in the estate with ulterior motives. On the outside, Li jia have always been harmonious and has a strict hierarchy but now, someone’s life was threatened. If he continues to pretend to be blind, his reputation, esteem and career will be affected. Everyone in the Li’s estate won’t be able to escape either. So, one can see that there will be some peaceful times in Li jia.
However, even though those people weren’t going to come look for, it didn’t mean she will do the same.
Half a month later, the first time she paid a visit to Shuang Yue Ge (Twin Moon Chamber) to see Li Chang Xi, she coincidentally met Li Zhang Le coming out of the chamber. Under the sun, her face had obviously been carefully made up, making her even more charming. She was dressed in a silk coat with floral patterns. At a simple glance, the long dress with peony flowers could be seen peeking out, layers upon layers with incandescent beauty.
Li Wei Yang blinked several times, a beaming smile on her lips. “Da jie.”
Li Zhang Le smiled and nodded at her. There was no change in her expression as she said, “San mei, are you here to visit Wu mei?”
Li Wei Yang nodded. “Da jie looks very happy. Is there some good news?”
Li Zhang Le blinked prettily. There was a subtle hint of mirth hidden in her eyes. “It’s almost the end of the year. Da ge is coming back soon. Haven’t you heard, San mei?” Once she finished speaking, the servant girl beside her spoke up to remind her that Da furen was anxiously waiting for them. Li Zhang Le grinned then left.
Li Wei Yang watched her retreating figure. She was contemplating when Zi Yan, who was standing behind her, softly sighed.
“Da xiaojie is so beautiful.”
“Da shaoye is coming back soon?” Meanwhile Bai Zhi questioned.
The two maids’ point of interest was completely different.
Li Wei Yang briefly glanced at Bai Zhi, impressed. On her lips was a barely noticeable frosty smile. That’s right. The Li’s Da shaoye, Da furen’s biological son, Li Min Feng was coming back. In the first lifetime, he was Tuo Ba Zhen’s good friend, confidante and loyal subject. She remembered the chaos in that previous lifetime, remembered when she kneeled down to beg him, but he simply slammed the door in her face and refused to see her.
He had given her one sentence: “Simply an insignificant concubine’s daughter but you’re overestimating yourself!”
Overestimating yourself. Li Wei Yang lifted her head and looked at the bright sunlight. Suddenly she turned around and walked towards Shuang Yue Ge.
Abruptly, Bai Zhi said, “Xiaojie! Wu xiaojie, she—” Li Chang Xi was definitely going to bawl her eyes out and scream at the top of her lungs.
Li Wei Yang didn’t turn around but merely smiled. “Knowing there’s tigers on the mountain, that is why we go. Let’s go. I have my own reasons.”
