gfu supposed to carry on like this? Do they not want to keep their dignity?”

That was right. Jiang Mingyue fidgeted with her fingers. Regardless of how it was considered, this was Tushan Wangfu conceding defeat to Emperor Dongsheng.
If Emperor Dongsheng thought of it this way and Tushan Wangfu conceded to it, then that was the Tushan father and son swearing their allegiance to Emperor Dongsheng.
It had absolutely nothing to do with her, Jiang Mingyue.

“As for what exactly is so bad about Zhao Qingrong, I’m currently still not too clear on that,” Old Madam Xu said, “But we just need to remember that this woman is not a good person.”

“Grandma!” Jiang Yue’e took a glance at the direction of the gate of the reception pavilion and said softly: “In any case, she is still a princess.
So don’t scold her anymore.”

“The heavens didn’t tell me to shut up, yet you—wretched little girl—are telling me to shut up?” Old Madam Xu was immediately provoked and offended by Jiang Yue’e’s words.

When Jiang Mingyue saw her elder sister stand up and admit her mistake, her mouth moved but didn’t voice any words. Old Madam Xu, this grandmother of hers, prioritised filial piety, so she naturally pressured her daughter-in-law, Zhao Qingrong, greatly.
Moreover, compared to Old Madam Xu who was currently shamelessly scolding Jiang Yue’e, Zhao Qingrong was actually pretty prideful regarding all other matters, aside from when she shamelessly wanted to marry into the Jiang family no matter what.
As for the Jiangs’ own Old Madam Xu…?

“What is face? Face is just a fart—worthless!” the old madam said loudly.

Jiang Mingyue pursed her lips and smiled. Look at that.
How could Zhao Qingrong possibly win against this old madam?

“Besides, was your face given to you by Zhao Qingrong?” the old madam questioned Jiang Yue’e.

Jiang Yue’e was already regretting it. Why was she unable to control her tongue?!

“I saved the life of His Majesty the Emperor!” the old madam said.

Not again! The old sir covered his face with his hand that was as big as a palm-leaf fan.
His family’s old lady was once again going to recount that time!

Jiang Mingyue continued fiddling with her fingers.
That year when Emperor Dongsheng fell into dire straits, his bodyguards had all died.
With the assassins dispatched by the Beloved Imperial Concubine Gao-shi [1] on his tail, Emperor Dongsheng fled for his life and jumped into a lake.
If her old madam hadn’t pulled him out, Emperor Dongsheng would have become a water ghost.

Emperor Dongsheng hid with the Jiangs’ for half a year and acknowledged Old Madam Xu as his adoptive mother.
The Jiangs had four children.
Aside from the eldest son who stayed behind to farm, the other three left with Emperor Dongsheng.
In the end, the only one who managed to stay alive was the Jiangs’ second son—Jiang Ruqiu.
That was why Jiang Mingyue inwardly shed a small handful of tears for Zhao Qingrong.
As long as Old Madam Xu did not kill Zhao Qingrong, Emperor Dongsheng could indulge his adoptive mother in doing whatever she wanted and pretend he couldn’t see any of it.


[1] ‘Beloved’ is an adjective for the title of Imperial Concubine, so the full title is ‘Beloved Imperial Concubine’.
The [-shi] indicates that it is the clan/maiden name.
