It wasn’t that the three girls and their parents held no suspicions towards Zi You getting injured.
Four girls went into the mountain together, but three of them were fine and only Zi You was injured. It was said that she sent the other three girls back first and stayed alone in the mountain. That’s how she put herself in danger.
But why did she stay in the mountain alone? Why didn’t she return from the mountain with the three girls? When asked, the three girls shook their heads. “I don’t know. You’er didn’t say.”
Duke Anguo furen had these doubts and asked Old General Mu about them when she went to visit Zi You.
Old General Mu had a good explanation. “That’s because the child wanted to learn medicine. She wanted to catch some small animals on the mountain to practice medicine on and was found by people with bad intentions. You’er had said that it was fortunate that she sent her three jiejies away. Otherwise, she would have implicated them. I also think that that was a blessing among misfortune.”
The three families were suspicious, but they understood. Although Zi You was a military family’s descendant, she was still a noble blue-blooded xiaojie. She naturally didn’t want anyone to see her doing something vulgar as catching animals. Even if they were close friends, she didn’t want to leave a bad impression on them.
Old General Mu was secretly relieved when he saw that the three xiaojies and their families were no longer suspicious. He was also very gratified about his granddaughter’s ability.
He didn’t expect his granddaughter’s Worriless Pill was so effective. Liu Ruixue, Xia Ruoqing, and Ji Bingyu only remembered that they went into the mountain with Zi You and were later sent by Zi You back to their homes.
A cold light flashed in Zi You’s eyes when she thought about the vicious attack that day. She smiled comfortingly at Duke Anguo furen. “You’er understands, godmother. You’er will pay more attention in the future. Don’t worry. In fact, this is also good. This can train You’er’s courage. Otherwise, You’er might turn into a coward on the battlefield with grandfather and uncle. Let’s treat it as experiencing war early.”
