Zi You estimated that the plot would soon be carried out. This was just the calm before the storm. The Spring Festival was almost here. Her slag father was about to return. Shui YouLian’s last letter said, “Bieqie is more than two months pregnant and cannot serve Laoye. Laoye has named a Sixth Yiniang in Quanzhou. Bieqie is afraid that he will bring her back.”
Zi You wondered kind of expression Wang Yiping would have when she saw the pregnant Fifth Yiniang and the sweet and delicate Sixth Yiniang. Should she tell her ahead of time and make her stressed? It could also speed up her plot.
Otherwise, she and her grandfather would go up into the mountains to train soldiers. It would take at least half a year.
“Bieqie pays respects to Xiaojie. Is Xiaojie going to Furen’s courtyard to visit Furen?” As Zi You was thinking, she encountered Second Yiniang and Third Yiniang.
The two curtsied to her. It was Second Yiniang, the only person who had a Shu son from the first household, who asked the question.
It was unclear if Mu YingRui was oversexed that led to his ineffective sperm. He had a lot of women, but not many children. Now that Zi You was studying medicine, she finally understood that when men did that too much, sperm count would decline and women were less likely to conceive.
He was really reaping what he sowed. Zi You looked at the Shu son next to Second Yiniang. He had his head lowered and not as clever as uncle’s sons. She secretly sneered in ridicule, but had a faint smile on her face. “Second Yiniang and Third Yiniang just left mother’s place with brother?”
Although Second Yiniang and Third Yiniang were Mu YingRui’s concubines and of an older generation than Zi You, they still had the statuses of servants. Zi You was a master. Old General Mu would never let his precious granddaughter curtsy to lowly concubines.
Thus, the two saw Zi You and obediently curtsied to her, albeit full of reluctance.
Everyone in the house was afraid of Old General Mu being unhappy. Therefore, they were even a bit timid when they see Zi You.
