Lin Shi’s face was rather embarrassed when she saw no one bothered about her. Luckily, she didn’t care about anything except for her husband. She quickly adjusted herself and spoke, “You have sufficient manpower. Shouldn’t you speed up your younger sister’s…”
Yu Pin Yan slammed the bowl on the table and looked at her coldly, “Mother, don’t talk too much when you eat!” Then he lowered his head to look at Xiang’er and found that her face was confused, and the frost in his eyes slightly melted slightly.
Was that why she was here? The son who grew up under her knees and her daughter who she had never seen before, which was more important? The Old Madam trembled with anger. Because the word ‘daughter’ always comes out from Lin Shi’s mouth, and she often chose such a time to say so. At this time, the Old Madam’s expectation of her own granddaughter was even worse than before, until she became indifferent.
It was not that she didn’t want her to return, but could she let her grandson rest for a few days? He just returned from the battlefield filled with gunpowder, and she couldn’t help looking for someone. What do you think he was? A stone that didn’t know what being tired was or emotionless?
The Old Madam suppressed her anger and looked at Yu Xiang. She gently spoke, “Xiang’er, Grandmother has something to say to your mother. You can go back first.” After saying that, she ordered Ma Momo to pack up some good dishes and let Tao Hong and Liu Lu carry it back.
Yu Xiang didn’t want to know of her pedigree now, so she obediently agreed. Yu Pin Yan carried her back and put ointment on her bruised forehead. He coaxed her to finish the meal and then returned to the main hall.
As usual, Lin Shi wiped her tears with a handkerchief in her hand. When she saw Yu Pin Yan has returned, she choked and said, “I know that the battlefield is dangerous, but isn’t dangerous for my daughter to be out on the streets? The world is so chaotic, and the Shen family does business. It’s only in a short time that they become rich or destitute. What good life can my daughter live in their family! It can’t be compared with you who is in a high position and very rich….”
“Shut up! Do you think our glory and wealth are brought by a strong wind? They were all fought by Yan’er! Other than your daughter, in your heart, is there a position for Yan’er? Is he blood related to you?” The Old Madam flew into a rage and slammed the table that produced a loud sound.
Yu Pin Yan grabbed her wrist and gently stroked it. Then, he said coldly, “Mother, I’ll send someone to look for her. Even if you turn over Lingnan, I will find her for you. When my younger sister returns back in the future, you can live with her.” Don’t cause more problems for me! After I returned this favour, I wouldn’t care twice about you!”
Lin Shi didn’t understand what he was implying but the Old Madam did. Looking at her grandson, she twirled the Buddha beads and finally sighed. Forget it, to have such a mother, who could always maintain that flesh and blood kinship? To get to this point, Lin Shi herself asked for it!
Lin Shi stopped crying and walked away.
After a quarter of an hour, the Old Madam asked in a low voice, “Is Xiang’er asleep?”
“Yes.” Yu Pin Yan nodded.
The Old Madam sighed as she looked at the beam in the room, “Your mother is not very caring, but your younger sister is sincere. Being blood related is false, but the love for you isn’t artificial at all. Did you think the bruise on her forehead was because she hit the doorpost? It’s because she prayed everyday for your blessing. It’s gone today, but tomorrow she will kowtow endlessly without caring for her life. Even myself can’t bear to see it!” She wiped the tears from the corner of her eyes and continued, “When your younger sister returns, don’t put Xiang’er aside and stop caring about her!”
Yu Pin Yan felt a lump in his throat. He raised his hand and poured a glass of liquor. He responded in a hoarse voice, “Look at what you had said. How could I leave Xiang’er alone? Although she isn’t my blood-related younger sister, she is closer to my sister in terms of affection. Don’t worry, Grandmother. Even if i treat everyone else badly, I can’t treat Xiang’er badly. By the way, is Xiang’er in good health?”
“She’s currently doing great now. A month after you left, she suddenly had heart pain, and the physician couldn’t find out why. Before she was ill, she seemed to have a nightmare and yelled, “Elder brother move away”. The Old Madam looked into her grandson’s eyes inquiringly.
Yu Pin Yan’s eyes flashed slightly. He took out a deformed copper coin from his pocket and said with a wry smile, “There are miraculous things like spiritual communication in the world. At that time, I was killing the enemy. I was in a trance when I heard Xiang’er telling me to move away. Then, I avoided the cold arrow from the back of my heart and the copper coin blocked the enemy’s attack. I only had chest pain for half a month, but my skin wasn’t hurt. When I kill the enemy on the battlefield, even Xiang’er was made to suffer. What’s Buddha going to do? I killed lives, punishing me would suffice.”
Yu Pin Yan never believed in Buddhism, but was forced to believe it at this juncture.
The Old Madam was stunned for a long time before returning to her sense and quickly comforted, “How is that a sin to Buddha? This is the Buddha’s protection. Look at it, who in the world has such a great fortune as you, you can even escape death? Don’t think about it, it’s great that you are back!” After saying that, she took the copper coin and touched it again. From then on, she believed that Yu Xiang was a Taiyi nobleman.
Yu Pin Yan bid farewell to the Old Madam and went straight to Yu Xiang’s courtyard. The little girl slept very sweetly, her mouth opened slightly and she breathed out a breath of lotus fragrance. Yu Pin Yan came close to look at her blue forehead and used his fingertips to depict her more and more delicate facial features. He only felt that immersed in the blood, her cold and hard heart was completely softened.
He took off his boots, removed his combat robe, lay down next to her, and closed his eyes peacefully.
Tao Hong and Liu Lu didn’t know whether to wake him up and had to find Ma Momo.
Ma Momo looked into the room, waved her hand and said with a smile, “Let the Little Marquis sleep well! Why’s there so much rules between siblings!” It was time to let the young Marquis gain more of Miss Xiang’er’s blessing! What an auspicious day, that the Madam has ruined!
