Ning Huang is after all, came out from the same womb as the Crown Prince.
Their tempers were alike.
Looking at the Zhu WuXin lying on the bed, her eyes immediately turned red.
She held Zhu WuXin’s hand and asked, “WuXin meimei, do you still remember me? I am Ning Huang jiejie.”
[Translator note : I’ll stop holding on to the Sister term, and start using the chinese word instead. I think it sounds more natural.
For those who don’t know, Jiejie means Elder Sister while Meimei means younger sister.]
Zhu WuXin squeezed a bit her hand, to signal that she remembered.
But actually, how does she know who on Earth is this onion ah.
She was actually concentrating her whole body focus to the movement outside.
Ning Huang rubbed her eyes a bit, not staying inside any longer and rushed out shouting, “Father, how can you do that to her!”
Turning his head to Ning Huang, the Crown Prince asked, “You knew her?”
“I do. I met her once when I just married into Zhu House. She was always getting bullied.”
“I remember back then she was still very small. Now she have grew into a big girl.”
Saying up to this point, she turned to look at Zhu Hou, “Father, how did you promised me back then?”
“You said you won’t let her get bullied again, so how do you explain this?”
Zhu Mo frowned, family shames must not be spread outside.
He does not want Ning Huang to be involved in the conflict between Zhu Hou and Zhu WuXin.
Walking up to the front, he pulled Ning Huang away but she heavily shook away his hand.
“Zhu Mo, do you still remember how did you replied me when I asked you where did WuXin went to?”
“You said she was married to a great family, living well and happily.”
“You go and see for yourself, the condition she is in right now, is this your so-called happiness?”
“Ning Huang, I…..”
Ning Huang interrupted his words. “Zhu Mo, Benwang has considered ‘seen both of you father and son wrongly.'”
Finishing her words, Ning Huang didn’t look at them anymore and turned to the Crown Prince, “Brother, we immediately go back to the palace to get her some treatments.”
He nodded, and helped Ning Huang put on her coat then packed up to leave.
Before they left, Crown Prince particularly stopped in front of Zhu Hou.
Nobody can hear what was said between those two.
But everyone saw the moment Crown Prince went away, Zhu Hou’s face instantly paled.
A great birthday party, was completely destroyed.
“Father, didn’t you told me that WuXin was married? What is going on with the incident happened today?”, Zhu Mo asked Zhu Hou in person after all the guests dispersed to leave.
Zhu Hou said in a deep voice, “These days I was busy with JiLan’s birthday celebration, completely forgotten about her. This old man didn’t think that the Crown Prince would found her”
Not speaking, Zhu Mo gave him a cold snort.
Zhu Hou looked at him and said, “You should hurry up to find Ning Huang, can’t offend Ning Huang just because of the wretched girl.”
After a long moment of silence, Zhu Mo opened his mouth, “Father, you also knew Ning Huang is a warm-hearted person. After saving WuXin once that year, she kept talking about her.”
“No matter how much you ignored those who used underhand methods to bully WuXin, I can still ‘open one eye and close one eye'.”
“Because just like you, I also hated her so much. But no matter how it is, those were minor arguments and bully, it can’t cause any big trouble.”
“But now, you are attempting a murder! Do you know that! To add on it, you even lied to me!”
“Presumptuous, you dare to talk to this old man in this manner!”
“Father, where did your cleverness went to?”
Zhu Mo was so angry he started trembling, “I asked the servants just now, the injuries behind WuXin’s back were done under your order. You were also the person who gave the order to prohibit anyone from giving her food.”
“What else do you want to hide? If WuXin really died, you think you will be fine if the Crown Prince didn’t found her?”
“Don’t forget there’s still a ‘Lu' alive in this world!”
“Now it’s good (sarcasm), Ning Huang ignoring me now. You are troubling me to death!”
After saying that, Zhu Mo flapped his sleeves and left.
Zhu Hou looked at the chaotic and disorderly condition of the inner hall, his face getting paler and paler.
