Chapter 35: Reuniting with an old acquaintance
The next day, Li Wei Yang went to pay her respects to Lao furen as usual but was unexpectedly stopped halfway on the route.
“Isn’t this San Biaomei?” A voice was heard from the pavilion.
Bai Zhi saw a group of young girls approaching and her facial expressions became tense.
Li Wei Yang followed her line of sight and saw a few young girls walked towards her in big steps; leading the group was Gao Min who they just saw yesterday. Gao Min’s eyes lightly squinted, “Li Wei Yang!”
Gao Min was Wei Guo furen and Marquis of Bo Chang’s eldest daughter; she had a well-respected reputation and was also skilled in music and literature so she was well-known in the capitol. Yesterday, she suffered from Li Wei Yang’s tactics so she couldn’t wait to seek her revenge today.
“Li Wei Yang, yesterday you had your share of fun!” Gao Min has a tall stature; she was older than Li Zhang Le by a month. At this moment, she was looking down onto Li Wei Yang.
“I am unsure what is the meaning behind Min Biaojie’s words.” Li Wei Yang brushed off her words as she calmly spoke.
This yatou is brazenly arrogant. A hint of rage flashed across Gao Min’s eyes.
“If you know that I am your Biaojie, why don’t you greet me?” Gao Min’s willow-leaf shaped eyebrows rose, her voiced questioned loudly.
Li Wei Yang lightly smiled, “Wei Yang grew up in the countryside and so don’t understand these etiquettes, please don’t be offended.” After she finished speaking, her eyes turned towards Li Zhang Le, who was standing on the side. Seeing her calm expression, Wei Yang knew she must have been the one who instigated Gao Min to seek trouble with her.
Gao Min coldly laughed: “Kneel and admit your fault!”
Her manners were arrogant and overbearing making Bai Zhi angry to the point of reddening her eyes.
Li Wei Yang looked at Gao Min, her face showed a hint of cold malice, Gao Min thought highly of herself so she always stepped upon others as if they were ants. These type of people are very abominable: “Wei Yang don’t know what fault to admit?”
“You are at the very least a prime minister’s qianjin, the daughter of an eminent family. You should cultivate your character and behave ethically but you deliberately covered up your servant’s misdemeanor and continue to make up excuses. If I spread words about your evildoings so that everyone would know, you don’t even have to think of marrying someone in the future!”
Gao Min’s words were malicious, Li Zhang Le’s expressions were calm as if she didn’t hear a single word. Li Changxi heard it from the side and her lips raised slightly with a grin. Whether it was dajie Li Zhang Le or sanjie Li Wei Yang, whoever fell from disgrace, she will still be in joy. It was only Li Changxiao, although she didn’t speak a word, whose expressions revealed worries.
“So I am wrong from the start ……” Li Wei Yang looked at her as if she was speaking to herself.
“Of course you are wrong! And you are very wrong!” Gao Min raised her chin slightly and looked down at her from her position, “If you kneel and plead for forgiveness now, I will consider letting you off. Or else, if yesterday’s matter was made public, then your reputation will be ruined!”
Li Wei Yang surprisingly showed a cold smile.
“Kneel and ask for forgiveness?” Li Wei Yang suddenly walked one step forward, looking directly into Gao Min’s eyes.
“You want to let everyone know about yesterday’s matter? Then should we let everyone know that your Er ge is a pervert, a fool who tried to assault a woman but was beaten up as a result!”
“Or should I tell everyone that it was my dajie Li Zhang Le who secretly met up with your Er ge, but was discovered by my poor San di. So they both teamed up and beat San di up severely, attempting to kill off a witness!”
“Min Biaojie, I am merely the daughter of a concubine. Do you think the people of the capitol would be more interested in my obstinate and unreasonable behavior or the love life of the prime minister’s well-reputable daughter! If you let everyone know about this, it would ruin me but also your beloved Da Biaomei!”
These words one by one pounded at her face, originally overbearing and arrogant, Gao Min’s expression changed and uncontrollably retreated a step backward.
Li Zhang Le’s entire face whitened and as for the others, they were stunned. They have never seen such aggressive behavior from Li Wei Yang.
Gao Min expressed: “Do you really dare? Do you really dare?”
Li Wei Yang just nonchalantly stood there and stared at them: “What is there that I dare not to do!” She caressed her sleeve and clearly spoke out each word, “You are fed up with me and I don’t want to lay my eyes on you. Since we can’t bear the sight of one another, I hope that if Min Biaojie sees me from now on, please stay at least three feet away from me.” After she finished saying her words, she turned preparing to leave.
“Li Wei Yang!” Gao Min angrily shouted, “You uneducated thing! Watch me tell……”
“Tell my fuqin?” Li Wei Yang forcefully turned her body, eyes shooting out cold beams, making her not seemed like a fragile thirteen-year-old maiden girl: “Go ahead, I am sure he will appreciate Min Biaojie poking her nose in his business by helping him teach his daughter! The words you’ve spoken last time, I believe fuqin hasn’t completely forgotten them yet!”
Gao Min was trembling with anger, her face turned white; she couldn’t utter a single word as she stared at Li Wei Yang.
Li Zhang Le originally wanted to the arrogant Gao Min to punish Li Wei Yang but seeing the situation, she had no choice but to keep her calm and gently said: “Min Biaojie, our Sanmei grew up in the countryside, she is still young and doesn’t understand much, if she has offended you, please don’t take it too personally.”
Hearing this, Li Chang Xi smiled and said: “Sanjie, having dwelled with these bumpkins for a while, she can only become more and more vulgar and ignorant, it’s best that you return back and become more educated. That way you can avoid being unpresentable and also cause us to be laughed at by others.”
Li Chang Xiao bit her lips, she wanted to speak for Li Wei Yang but in the end held back.
“Oh? You dislike the fact that I am making you all lose face?” Li Wei Yang’s eyes were like kindling iced fire: “Dajie, wumei, every year during your birthday, father would do everything he can to prepare presents for you, these beautiful silk are made by naïve girls who work days and nights, even to the point of blinding their eyes to produce these; these glamorous bear skins were caught by these rough hunters who ambush for days in the severely cold winter snow; these invaluable mermaid tears were fetched by these lowly commoners who sacrificed their life in the ocean. The things you eat, drink, walk with, which of these did not come from the low and vulgar people that you all look down upon? Taking from the commoners, but keep hurling a mouthful of insults, so who is after all low and vulgar!”
Hearing this, everyone was completely distracted. Seeing Li Wei Yang’s delicate features revealed an inexplicable chilled smile, they didn’t know how to react but to be frightened.
Li Chang Xi saw Li Zhang Le’s expression showed embarrassment and hastily said: “Da jie, don’t be too concerned with her! Let’s leave!”
“Yes, you all are such highly dignified people, it’s better that you don’t put too much thought into words spoken by a vulgar naïve girl like me. When rubber and porcelain touch, no one knows which will break!” Li Wei Yang laughed grimly, to live once more, she will not swallow the insult silently and definitely will not hold back because of respect. Since they’ve approached her, then she will not let them off that easily!
“Hahahahaha!” Suddenly, the clear laughter of a man echoed from the mountains behind.
Everyone was astonished and saw two young gongzi gracefully walking towards them. In front of them was a debonair, handsome young man who was wearing a bamboo green changshan with inked lotus sewn with gold threads. He wore a silver fox-skinned cloak on the outside and his jet black hair was held up by a yuguan; his handsome appearance could match the beauty of a woman. Li Changxi saw him and smiled happily: “Da ge, you’ve returned!”
Li Min Feng grinned: “Let’s not talk about this now, all of you quickly greet San dianxia.” Before finishing his words, everyone saw a tall, handsome young man who was wearing a mink-furred jinyi, calmly walked over in a leisurely manner.
Everyone stood still in wonder……
