Zi You knew this was the face her aunt was giving her. She knew her aunt was still not in favor of her sons learning martial arts.
Zi You did not reveal it or explain. She would wait until she taught her aunt’s two sons into well-rounded, in both civil and martial talents, and let her aunt be convinced then.
In her previous life, after Zi You’s death, Née Liu also followed. Her heart hurt thinking of the three weak underage boys left behind.
In this life, she must let uncle’s sons become pillars of society versed in the pen and the sword and able to stand on their own.
Zi You silently swore an oath. She took out the Jasper hairpin she bought for Née Liu and smilingly inserted it into her hair. “Thank you aunt, for believing in You’er.”
Née Liu looked at the hairpin. It was pure Jasper without any blemish. She knew it was expensive.
Her heart happy and touched, Née Liu feigned anger, “Really, you bought so many slaves and not even a beaded flower for yourself. But you bought me such a valuable hairpin…this child…You didn’t buy your mother a present? Although… after all…”
Née Liu looked at Zi You with a distressed face. She didn’t know how to express her meaning.
She didn’t have to explain and Zi You already understood. Wang Yiping was hypocritical but still her legitimate stepmother. If she did not perform well, an un-filial hat would be put on her and she would be scolded.
Zi You peacefully smiled and comforted Née Liu, “Rest assured, aunt. You’er understands. I have gifts for both father and mother.”
