The Royal’s Cute Little Wife - Chapter 13.2
Before, he would eat two more portions of sweets
Xie Liqing frowned. He was truly angry. They were people who had a family, why did she keep pestering him like this? He said, “That was before, now I don’t like it anymore. Concubine, please go back early, you’ve been out for so long, so it’s inappropriate.”
After speaking, he took his wife and daughter and was about to leave. But before he could take two steps, Concubine Qin refused to give up and actually tried to stop them.
Xie Zhen had been curious for a long time. Standing in front of Madam Leng and Xie Liqing, she raised her snow-white childish face. “Is the lady the side concubine of the King of Dongping? “
Madam Qin looked down at her and nodded slowly.
She was even more curious. She tilted her little head and blinked her big eyes. “Then why don’t you stay with the King of Dongping? But accompany my dad instead?
Concubine Qin was speechless.
She waited anxiously and expectantly for Madam Qin to answer, yet no one answered her. After a long while, she still didn’t get an answer, she pursed her lips in frustration. Thinking of the scene she saw at the beginning, “ You even held my father’s hand, why did you hold his hand? Father’s hand can only be held by mother.”
As she said that, she turned around and grabbed the hands of Madam Leng and Xie Liqing respectively with her chubby hands. She then placed their hands together and said, “This is how it should be!”
After accomplishing her goal, she smiled contentedly, her smiling face as bright as a delicate flower in the winter snow.
That smile pierced into Madam Qin’s eyes, hurting her. She helplessly watched as Xie Liqing held onto Madam Leng in one hand and the little girl in another as they walked further and further away. The family of three were happy and harmonious, making her seem even more lonely.
After walking through the moon gate, reaching a place where Madam Qin could not see, Madam Leng resolutely shook off Xie Liqing’s hand.
Xie Liqing’s heart thumped, trying to hold her hand again, but she avoided.
He suddenly had a bad premonition and turned to look at Madam Leng. She looked at him calmly, with a sneer on her lips, and asked slowly, “Cousin?”
He had a terrible headache.
Madam Leng thought for a moment and said word for word, “And do you still like lotus root powder sweet osmanthus cake the most?
It seems that today he wouldn’t be able to pass this trial if he doesn’t speak the truth. For a while, Xie Liqing didn’t know where he should start. He has never told Madam Leng about his past. After all, he was easily tempted when he was young. So he wasn’t able to bring himself to speak. Moreover, ever since he had married her, he had experienced many ups and downs. He liked her more and more day by day and thus that past with his cousin was even more insignificant.
He didn’t say it out loud because he felt it was unnecessary. Since it has been so long. If not for the King of Dongping bringing Concubine Qin here, he probably wouldn’t have remembered.
Xie Linqing softened his tone and tried his best to coax her: “That’s all in the past. When have you ever seen me eat sweet cakes? Chanyu, Don’t you know my love for you… ?”
Madam Leng glanced at him, “What are you thinking?”
He choked as he was about to answer when he looked down and saw little Xie Zhen listening to him.
Xie Zhen’s large black eyes blinked as she saw Xie Liqing stopped talking. She quickly pulled on his clothes and asked: “Daddy, what are you thinking?” 
Xie Liqing immediately realised that he had lost his old face. He waved his hands to chase her away. “Young children are not allowed to listen to adult talks”
As he spoke, he told Mama Chen to pick her up and carry her inside.
Xie Zhen hasn’t heard enough. She wriggled on Mama Chen’s shoulder twice. Though she didn’t like it, she was still taken away.
The only people left in the courtyard were Madam Leng and Xie Liqing. Madam Leng didn’t say a word, implying: Speak then.
Xie Liqing coughed. In the courtyard, there were countless pairs of eyes watching him. He felt it was detrimental to his dignity to express his feelings to his wife in public. He wanted to take Madam Leng back to the house, but Madam Leng was more stubborn than him. She just stood there and didn’t want to move until he had finished speaking.
He could only say, “Beside the two girls, you are the only woman in my heart”
It snowed all night, and the next day the yard was covered in snow.
Xie Zhen and Xie Xun work together to build a snowman. Xie Zhen stood on a foot-stool and tried to plug a carrot nose. Xie Xun suddenly shouted, causing Xie Zhen to fall off from the foot-stool.
“Why are you shouting?” She angrily asked her sister as she sat in the snow-covered in it.
Xie Xun pointed at the front courtyard and swiftly remembered, “The King is leaving today…”
