As the second son of the house, HongSan need to help big brother ZhuMo to take care and keep an eye of various business. He can’t keep on staying in Zhu House all the time.
So, right after Zhu WuXin’s fever receded, he packed his things to start his journey to Jiangnan to audit accounts. HongSan gifted Xiao Lian to WuXin as her personal maidservant. Zhu WuXin stood by the mansion front door to say goodbye. HongSan really wanted to bring her with him together on this journey, but helplessly she replied that her body and bones were not in good condition, and refused to agree no matter what.
Actually, it’s not because Zhu WuXin don’t want to go, it’s just she felt that it’s not the time yet. Running away silently, with tail between legs, that’s not her style. Other than that, HongSan is the Second Young Master of this House, even if she wanted to run, where can she go? Sooner or later, he will still need to go home. If that’s the case, she might as well stay back and re-establish her own image.
Zhu WuXin smiled widely and said, “Brother, you can go. This time if anyone come to bully me, I will pull out their tendons and flay their skin”
“Don’t worry, don’t worry, I’m not the same as who I was before. I can protect myself properly.”
HongSan patted her head and smiled, “You must take good care of yourself.”
After saying that, he got up the carriage and left.
Waiting until the shadow of his carriage shrunk to the size of a small dot, then only Zhu WuXin starts going back into the mansion. But, as soon as she reached her court, she was blocked by someone.
“What are all of you doing?”
Pushing away the errand servants, Zhu WuXin roared at Zhu JiLan.
[Translator note : 1 ]
“You can’t see ah? Searching thing ah.”
Zhu JiLan looking calm and composed, drinking tea at the side.
“You all quickly search it out for me, if can’t find it I’ll have your skin peeled out!”
Really thought WuXin is a soft persimmon  , if want to pinch then can pinch?
“All of you, stop at this instant!” Zhu WuXin roared at the errand servants.
Due to losing influence for such long time, nobody listened to her. Zhu WuXin started to get irritated.
“Zhu JiLan, what exactly are you searching for?”
“Of course looking for my earring. Previously when I visit you, I realized it’s missing after I went back to my room. So, I brought people to help me look for it. Sister, hope you don’t mind oh.”
“If it’s really not at your place, your little sister me, will definitely give you a good explanation. But then, seeing sister you looked so agitated, couldn’t be the earring was really dropped here and you hid it?”
“Oho, quite skillful in weaving story to frame person ah,” Zhu WuXin sneered.
Then, Zhu JiXiang also fan into the flame at the side.
“Sister, you don’t have to be so angry. Sister Lan is young, so she’s willful. You as a sister older than her, ought to yield to her.”
“Yield to your mom’s head!”
If Zhu WuXin wanted to scold people, she will just scold.
From when she was young until now, she have never encountered such damned maltreatment before. Grabbing the tea in front of Zhu JiLan, WuXin splashed it towards her.
“Aiya, really sorry, sister. My hand injury haven’t healed yet, I thought to drink water, why did it slipped ah.”
Zhu JiLan was about to flip out, when an errand servant holding two items suddenly shouted “Found it, found it!”, before rushing out.
Zhu WuXin turned her head towards the sound, this feeling is good (sarcastic), feels like ‘My Fair Princess' is omnipresent. If you add also YiRong mama, then this scene is a perfect match!
[Translator note : YiRong mama is the servant of the villain Empress in the drama My Fair Princess.]
