Everything was perfect in the current Qi fu. The only thing marring that perfection was Qi RongYue. Her existence reminded him all the time that he once relied on a merchant’s daughter’s dowry to rise up in officialdom.
That day, Qi YongChun went to Pengcheng government’s prefecture and dissolved the father-daughter relationship between Qi YongChun and Qi RongYue. He also sent someone to the Qi family ancestral halls and struck Qi RongYue’s name off the genealogy records. From now on, Qi fu and Qi RongYue had no relationship.
Née Liang sent Nanny Li to the farmstead personally at night to kick out Qi RongYue and Xue’er. Let them fend for themselves on this cold winter night. If they died, it was for the best and exactly what they wanted.
After doing all this, the wife and husband sat at home, waiting for Marquis Yongping fu’s people to come.
But they waited and waited and no one from Marquis Yongping fu came. Qi YongChun felt something was wrong. Even if Marquis Yongping fu did not want to find fault with a weak woman, but Pengcheng’s head of the Zheng family was not easy to talk to. That Zheng Wenfan was only a fifth-rank senior provincial government official, but he came from Marquis Yongping fu and never put his immediate superior officer [Qi YongChun] in his eyes.
Now that this happened, how could he possibly have given up the opportunity to censure and hold him accountable?
The more he thought, the more he felt something was wrong. Qi YongChun sent men to the Zheng family for news. Marquis Yongping Shizi had not yet woken up and was looking hard for a doctor. They had no time for anything else.
Qi RongYue and Xue’er were kicked out of the farmstead by Nanny Li and Wang pozi. As Qi RongYue expected, they were given no time to get dressed or retrieve their belongings. Fortunately, Qi RongYue had great foresight and already wore the clothes and packed the belongings on her body. Even if they were kicked out, at least they wouldn’t freeze to death.
