The Royal’s Cute Little Wife - Chapter 13.3
‘Just leave’, Xie Zhen thought. ‘Since, the side concubine made mother unhappy. It’s better if she leaves.’ She patted the snow off her body and stood up. “You’re going to help me this time”
Xie Xun nodded her head and no longer dared to shout.
They built a snowman in the backyard, while the adults saw them off in the front yard.
Xie Liqing and Madam Leng personally escorted the King of Dongping to the door, said some polite words, and then gave him a few blankets and mattresses. Only then,did they allow the King of Dongping and Madam Qin to go into the carriage. During this time, Xie Liqing didn’t glance at Madam Qin. While, Madam Qin’s eyes were red, and she kept her head down from the beginning to the end.
Madam Leng discovered that she wasn’t carrying the baby today. When she looked back, she saw the Mama carrying a swaddled cloths in her arms. She thought it’s her baby.
The King of Dongping was the first to step into the carriage and waved goodbye to Xie Liqing. He looked at Madam Qin, who was sitting beneath the carriage, and a dark light flashed through his eyes. He then suddenly teased her: “What, do you want to stay here?”
Madam Qin hurriedly shook her head, she then stepped on the yellow wooden stool to get inside the carriage.
The King of Dongping didn’t say much, but his attitude towards her was even worse than yesterday.
This made Madam Leng dwell further. Could it be he knew something? However, his attitude towards Xie Liqing was very polite and courteous. No different from yesterday, devising making people feel suspicious.
As the carriage gradually drew farther away, Xie Liqing took off his cloak and draped it over Madam Leng before taking her back into the house. “Let’s quickly head back. Don’t stand here and catch a cold”
As they walked, Madam Leng asked, “How is the relationship between the King of Dongping and the princess?
Xie Liqing replied, “I don’t know. However, I heard that the Princess of Dongping has a resolute and decisive personality. So she manages the royal place with subservience”
She has a fierce personality. To put it bluntly, her temperament was quite straightforward. Thus she could not tolerate unjustness.
After listening to Xie Liqing’s explanation yesterday, Madam Leng was perplexed. Why did she (Concubine Qin) want to return when she was the one who racked her brain to enter the royal place with so much difficulty. From what she could see, Madam Qin must have suffered in the hands of the Princess of Dongping and found it difficult to get along with her. Only then did she remember how good Xie Linqing was to her.
Madam Leng squinted at Xie Liqing. Her eyes were clearly doubting his vision.
Xie Liqing immediately embraced her into his arms. He really loved her. Despite being in the courtyard, he lowered his head and suckled her lips. “ At the moment, Your husband only likes you. You are the only person in my heart.”
Madam Leng let out a soft groan as she bit her lips.
In the backyard, with the help of Xie Rong, Xie Zhen and Xie Xun finally made a snowman.
The snowman had a round face, two black eyes, and red lips, it also wore Xie Zhen’s swan fur hat. Xie Zhen pointed at the snowman and said, “Does it look like Ah Xun?”
Xie Xun pouted her little mouth. “I think it looks like Sister.”
The two of them debated for a long time about who the snowman looked like. One said it looked like ‘Ah Xun’, while the other said it looked like ‘older sister’, and thus neither could come to a conclusion. Xie Zhen turned and ran to the corridor. The soft suede boots made a thumping sound on the board. “I will call mother to have a look”
With that being said, she ran to the Leng Residence’s main room.
There were no servant girls at the door of the room. She pushed the door twice but it didn’t open. As it was locked from the inside. She knocked on the door curiously “Mother?” she called out.
But, there was no one answer.
She was about to call again when she heard a strange sound coming from the inside. She put her ear on the partition fan. Only to hear a gasping sound and a low moan from her mother.
What was that sound?
She became curious and she wanted to hear it again. But, before she could, she was picked up by Shuang Yu. Shuang Yu blushed as she carried her away from the door. “Second Miss, Young Master Li has come to see you.”
When Xie Zhen looked up, she saw Li Yu in a black fur cloak, standing on the other side of the corridor. Looking at her with his small fair looking face.
