Old Madam kneaded her glabella and spoke in a deep voice, “Alright, cut the crap! Yu Miao Qi, you are more distressed about Chang Ya Fu than your elder brother. After all, you were raised outside and don’t consider yourself a member of the Yu family. If next time you join hands with the outsiders to make things difficult for Xiang’er, you can go live independently with your mother in the village. Our Yu family cannot tolerate someone who lives off one person while secretly helping another.” Once the words faltered, she looked at the granddaughter who was fuming with anger and waved helplessly, “How so do you want to settle the score with Chang Ya Fu? With your infamous reputation, people will even think you deliberately slandered her should you state the actual situation and who will believe you? And if too much is said while she seeks death again, you will not be able to get rid of this taint.”
The action of the Chang family was really disgusting, seeing that Yu Xiang is notorious hence putting the blame on her. As Yu Xiang had offended so many noble ladies, these people would naturally be more tolerant of Chang Ya Fu as fellow sufferers commiserate with each other that some even had the desire to support her. Using this driving force as pretext, Chang Ya Fu will find another household in no time.
This is using her granddaughter as the stepping stone to trample on ah! Feeling suffocated, Old Madam, however, could not think of a foolproof solution for a while. Seeing her distress, Yu Xiang hugged her arm and comforted her softly, saying that she could bear it for the time being and would unlikely cause any trouble. She only went out with Lin Shi’s mother and daughter after waiting upon her to wash up and lying down.
After all that was said, was she still not having to put up with this trifles anger? Gossip is a fearful thing that no matter how powerful Yu Xiang is, isn’t she still no match to the discordant of public opinion? In the end, she is still only an attractive but useless paper tiger! Thinking so, the corners of Yu Miao Qi’s mouth could not help but reveal a slight smile of contempt.
The three of them were about to go their separate ways at the intersection when Yu Xiang was heard calling out softly, “Elder Sister, let’s go play in my courtyard?”
There was hesitation shown on Yu Miao Qi’s face.
“Why? Afraid of me?” Yu Xiang raised an eyebrow that her already gorgeous face brought out a sense of overbearingness.
Feeling herself a head shorter than her for no reason, Yu Miao Qi immediately smiled, “How could that be, let’s go.”
“Qi’er … “ Lin Shi tugged at her sleeve and shook her head slightly.
“How old is Elder Sister? Can’t even walk after straying away from Mother? I am not even a tiger, will I possibly eat you up?” Yu Xiang covered her mouth and laughed lightly.
Yu Miao Qi brushed Lin Shi away and followed her with her two main maidservants. As soon as the group of people walked into the small picturesque-like courtyard, Yu Xiang had the door closed and pulled Yu Miao Qi to her knees by her belt. With one hand she roped her arm behind her back and another pinched the thin skin of her face as she revealed a gloomily eerie smile.
The two main maidservants turned pale with fright and about to step forward to help but were kicked over by Tao Hong and Liu Lu then pinned to the ground and unable to move.
“Yu Xiang, what do you want to do !?” Yu Miao Qi was beyond shocked that her voice took on a tone of broken shrill when she questioned.
“What do I want to do, it should be what is it that you want to do! Was it not for the sake of substantiating the rumors that I had bullied and humiliated Chang Ya Fu that you took the initiative to comfort Chang Ya Fu today? Which daughter would dare to marry into the Marquis manor having such a terrible sister-in-law. Grandmother is not aware yet at this moment but when she figures it out, she will definitely send me out to move the new sister-in-law in. You just can’t bear to see me well-off? Where have I provoked you?”
The pressure of the fingers that pinched her face got stronger and stronger, causing Yu Miao Qi to suck in her breath due to pain but she was so full of hatred that she could not even resort to open her mouth and could only glare with reddened eyes.
Yu Xiang sneered, “Yu Miao Qi, if you don’t provoke me, I won’t spur you either. If you insist on going against me, I will have to lift this skin off your face.” Saying that, her fingertip scratched along the skin and flesh ruthlessly.
“Please don’t pinch anymore. I was wrong. I was just jealous of the dotings that Grandmother and elder brother bestow on you to oppose you at every turn. From now on, I will not dare anymore, please let go! If you let me go, I will be conscientious in the future and will voluntarily detour when I see you, is that okay? Okay?” A sharp sting told Yu Miao Qi that her cheek had been nicked by Yu Xiang’s pinch and if she did not apply the medicine in time, it might leave a scar. If such, what hope is there to think about in this life?
What kind of a well-bred lady is this person but actually more ferocious than a savage bandit and more vicious than an evil spirit who can do anything perverse when she is offended. Yu Miao Qi was really fearful this time. She sobbed bitterly and chaotically frightened witless when tears trickled down and drenched the wound causing her acute stinging pain.
Only then did Yu Xiang felt pleased looking at this embarrassed face of snot and tears. She released her arm and the pinch on her face then pushed her away before taking out a handkerchief to leisurely wipe her own fingers as she spoke softly, “This is precisely right. We are after all sisters born of the same mother, so why bother make things difficult for each other? If you are willing to behave well, I will never touch you. Okay, okay, why are you crying? What’s the big deal?”
Throwing away the handkerchief, she waved her hand at Tao Hong, who was sitting on Bao Sheng’s back, “Go, bring me the amethyst stasis ointment in my trousseau.”
Complying, Tao Hong kicked Bao Sheng once before running inside the room. Bao Sheng hurriedly climbed up to help her master and whimpered, “Third, Third Young Miss, you are too much. You see you’ve pinched our Young Miss’ face like this, if the Marquis and Old Madam are to ask…”
Yu Xiang interrupted her casually, “Come on, there’s no need for elder brother and Grandmother to ask, just simply go complain to them if you feel aggrieved. Go, go, take the medicine.”
Running over hastily, Tao Hong stuffed the medicine bottle into the choked Bao Sheng’s hand.
Yu Miao Qi was dying to get as far away from this devilish Yu Xiang as possible, so she stopped the two indignant maidservants with her glance and stumbled away. In the future, she would never dare to enter this courtyard again. She had come here twice and both times, she had been threatened by Yu Xiang which was truly a nightmarish experience.
