“I’m fine.” She patted her elder brother and smiled faintly at Old Madam then looked at Yu Miao Qi before she spoke word by word, “Don’t ever tell me what I owe you in the future. What I owe you is merely riches and status but you owe the blood feud of a broken family. If you really want to talk about it, I ought to kill you to avenge my parents’ death.”
She took out a dagger from the hidden compartment in the armrest of her wheelchair and thrust it with force on the table, the muffled thud sound caused Lin Shi and Yu Miao Qi trembled in unison.
“But considering your surname is Yu too, I won’t touch you. You stay away from me in the future. Where there is you there is no me and where there is me there will be no you, remember?” Her tone was gloomily cold.
Such a blatant threat, yet Old Madam and Yu Pin Yan did not stop her. One had the eyes closed and pretended to take a nap while the other wholly absorbed on drinking tea. The large hand hidden under the table could not stop itself from tugging the younger sister’s small fair hand, kneading and fondling it.
“Remember.” Lin Shi pressed her daughter’s head to agree then stood up and said, “As long as you don’t drive Qi’er out, I’ll leave immediately.” It was not possible for her not to leave. Although the poisoned jujubes incident was over, who knew what those female guests thought in their heart. This is considered as the most effective explanation by divorcing her and sending her back to her maiden family where no one can say anything.
Yu Si Yu, who had remained silent, spoke in due course, “Mother, you are going to leave just like this? Have you forgotten something?” As she said that, she patted the thick piles of account books with a thud.
Yes, there are still more than sixty thousand taels of silver that her daughter lost. Lin Shi only remembered this and was somewhat unable to stand properly as she placed her hand on her head and swooned. The total of all her dowry was only worth twenty thousand taels of silver, where could she find another forty thousand taels? Go back and ask her Shu elder brother for help? If he knows that she is no longer the wife of the Marquis, perhaps he will be the first to pummel her while she was down.
The beads curtain tinkling and jingling by the blast of cold wind which clearly was very pleasing to the ears, yet it felt extremely desolated to Lin Shi’s hearing. Holding her tears, she knelt down again at Old Madam’s feet. Kowtowing, she tried to say something but finding herself at a loss for words. The evidence is conclusive and the consequences are so severe that she had no room to even plead for mercy.
Old Madam still had her eyes closed and pretended to sleep but Yu Pin Yan suddenly spoke, “Forget it, you can go.” This would be the last time he treated Lin Shi with leniency.
Lin Shi cried the tears of joy and naturally said, “Since Yan’er is no longer pursuing the matter, then I will leave all the dowry to Qi’er. After I leave, I hope you two siblings can reconcile and mutually help each other. Your father is still watching over you from the nether world and he certainly doesn’t wish you both to come to this point.”
Yu Pin Yan, Yu Xiang and Yu Si Yu all looked odd while Old Madam opened her eyes abruptly. She slammed the rosary in her hand severely on the table and shouted herself hoarse, “You get out of here! Get the hell out of here! I don’t ever want to see you again!”
Lin Shi was scared out of her wits that instantaneously felt limp and fell to the ground. Putting his cup of tea down, Yu PinYan spoke in a deep voice, “Go pack your things. I will personally send you home once you are done.”
Yu Miao Qi wanted to help support Lin Shi, but seeing Ma Momo calling two maidservants over who dragged and tugged Lin Shi away, she could only stand awkwardly in place.
Old Madam did not even look at her and sighed, “Xiang’er, you already know what sins Yu Miao Qi has made. That’s right, top scholar Shen is your Di elder brother. What are you thinking presently? Do you have any plans?”
The nuance of Old Madam was asking Yu Xiang if she wanted to acknowledge and return to her ancestry. Naturally, it is necessary to acknowledge and return to her ancestry but Yu Xiang was not familiar with Shen Yuan Qi after all, and to run over to live with him all of a sudden, she would feel more or less unadaptable. Moreover, she has just expressed mutual affection with her elder brother and it’s exactly the sweetest and loving moment, hence she is really reluctant to leave.
Yu Pin Yan did not say a word, only the hues of his eyes slightly dimmed.
Yu Xiang glanced at him quickly and replied slowly, “Since he is my Di elder brother, I should naturally … “
The latter part of her sentence was forced back before she could finish when her forehead was abruptly slapped by Old Madam, “You this damn child! Fancy my Yu family’s hard work in nurturing you for fifteen years and you can actually just leave when you say so! I originally thought you are different from that white-eyed wolf Yu Miao Qi but I did not expect you to be a cold-hearted and heartless one! I’ll let you go! I’ll let you go! See if I will break your legs!”
In passing, Old Madam picked up her walking cane and knocked it on her leg, causing Yu Xiang not knowing whether to laugh or to cry as she bore into her elder brother’s arms and shouted, “Don’t beat me Old Ancestor. My legs are precisely broken anyway! I’m not leaving, I won’t be going anywhere!”
Holding her tightly to shield her in his arms, Yu Pin Yan laughed happily, “Old Ancestor, calm down. Xiang’er is not going anywhere. She is born a member of the Yu family and dies a ghost of the Yu family. If she dares to leave, I can still catch her back even searching through heaven and earth.”
Old Madam actually did not hear the profound meaning of his words as she merely waved her hand in satisfaction.
 嫡 (dí) – Legitimate.
