It was really difficult to decide. If she told her, wouldn’t that add to Liu Ruixue’s troubles? But if Zi You didn’t tell her, then wasn’t that harming her?
After Zi You knew about Taizi and Shangguan Lingluo’s scandal, she was really in a dilemma. She wanted to tell her aunt, but she was afraid that her aunt would ask her how she knew such a secretive matter. How could she reply then? Tell her that she and Shangguan LingRan scouted out Taizi fu and that she personally witnessed it? Wouldn’t that scare her aunt to death?
She also could not tell Old General Mu. If he knew that she did such a dangerous thing, he would certainly ground her and never let her set foot outside the house again.
Zi You thought and decided to test Liu Ruixue first. If she really liked Taizi and wholeheartedly wanted to marry him, then Zi You wouldn’t say anything.
When she married him, Zi You would do her best to lessen the hurt that Taizi would cause her.
But if Liu Ruixue did not want to marry Taizi, then Zi You would tell her the whole truth and help her think of a way to leave Taizi.
Zi You made up her mind and arrived at Duke Anguo fu. She handed an invitation card over and Liu Ruixue personally came out shortly to meet her. She was very happy to Zi You, but said worriedly, “I was just thinking that I have to visit you one of these days and you’ve come. How are you? Are your injuries healed? Are you uncomfortable anywhere?”
Zi You pulled her hand and smiled as she hurriedly shook her head. “Don’t worry, Xue jiejie. You’re about to get married in half a year. Is your dowry prepared? Is your wedding gown finished?”
Liu Ruixue’s face turned red and she shook her head worriedly. She forced out a smile. “What is there to prepare? I will just be a cefei. It’s said to be a consort, but how is it really different than a small concubine? Not to mention……”
Liu Ruixue changed the topic. If she had any fantasy towards the outstanding and elegant Taizi before, she was disappointed in him, now that she had seen his schemes to marry Zi You at all cost.
Zi You looked at her expression and didn’t say anymore. She was in a dilemma once again. Should she tell her about Taizi and Shangguan Lingluo?
