HongSan poured more tea to his cup, not wanting to delve on the topic he inadvertently raised.
Changing the topic, he said, “I think it’s about time.”
“To marry Liu SuSu, what’s difficult was not how to capture her heart but Prime Minister Liu’s.”
That’s right, ancient people paid attention to how the families are well-matched in terms of social status for weddings.
People with high positions and big powers, especially.
“Brother, there’s nothing to worry about. You see our Zhu House is the richest House, and we even have a Princess in the family.”
“The Prime Minister definitely can be rest assured and leave his daughter to you.”
Zhu WuXin patted the table with confidence.
“Maybe”, HongSan replied with uncertainty, tried to change the topic without batting an eyelid.
He really don’t want to talk too much about his marriage with her, though Zhu WuXin really don’t care about that.
She casually chatted with HongSan for a while then went for dinner.
After dinner, she went back to her own room to count the tips she received today.
Smiling happily, she hugged the silvers and went to sleep.
As for the question why didn’t the two troublemaker Misses of Zhu House looked for trouble with Zhu WuXin, that was because HongSan was home.
They were afraid of this second older brother.
Don’t just see how nice HongSan treated Zhu WuXin, because when he gets angry even Zhu Hou was scared.
They were just some small fry, how would they dared ‘nothing better to do and messed on Taisui’s head ah’1.
Moreover, Zhu WuXin went out early in the morning. When she woke up, those two were still dreaming in their bed.
When she came back at night, she was always together with HongSan.
So the two Misses didn’t get any chances to pick on her.
Naturally, they wouldn’t know about her working in the restaurant.
Because of these, Zhu WuXin was able to live some rare quiet days.
But then, Zhu WuXin was not able to live quietly for long as her trouble-provoking fate started to play again.
She just don’t understand, why was it so hard to let her enjoy comfortable days!
Bright skies and light breeze, on this day Zhu WuXin was just a step out of the house when a black sack was pulled over her head.
Zhu WuXin wanted to want to scream out, but a shiny sharp knife was plunged into the sack, scaring her to turn completely silent.
She can only use silent protest to express her struggle to fight.
Just that it seems the sack contained sleeping drug, Zhu WuXin felt like the air was thin on top of her head and passed out.
