Moreover, this darned girl must have had something to do when she was going out. Otherwise why would she insist on going alone?
Wang Yiping thought of this point and immediately put on a concerned face for Zi You. In front of Mu YingRui, she grabbed Zi You’s hands. She softly asked, “You’er, let mother accompany you. A precious Xiaojie like you with only a few maidservants, what will we do if there’s an accident?”
Zi You agreed readily. “Then You’er won’t go. Originally, You’er wanted to personally shop for grandfather, father and mother’s Mid-Autumn Festival presents. Now it seems I can only use the existing materials on hand and create them myself. But father, it would be good if mother doesn’t dislike it.”
Wang Yiping immediately pretended to smile happily. “Good girl! You should not follow your grandfather and uncle and wield knives and spears. It’s better for girls to be gentle, quiet and dignified. You’re almost twelve years old. Late next year, we’ll have to set a marriage for you. It’s better to learn more needlework and etiquette. Laoye, after Mid-Autumn, how about I find a retired teacher from the Imperial Palace to teach You’er in the Manor?”
With a face of tenderness and worship and a coquettish voice, she whined, “Laoye, Laoye is a famous talent Great Yan’s. Of course, his daughter would have befitting speech and manner. Laoye, is what I said correct?”
Whether it was the eyes or the voice, Mu YingRui’s passion was provoked. Zi You found it nauseating.
Mu YingRui didn’t say anything but his eyes were flirting with Wang Yiping. He lightly and frivolously smiled, “Furen has always been virtuous and knowledgeable. Whatever Furen says is correct. You’er, remember your mother’s words and don’t disobey her.”
Mu YingRui spoke to Zi You, but the last sentence was not said gently, instead with a slight hint of warning.
