Yu Lanxuan deliberately insulted Zi You to make trouble. She did not expect for Zi You to turn the tables. She was scared until her face turned white. She quickly shut her mouth and didn’t dare to sow any more dissension. On the contrary, she comforted Zi You, “Don’t be angry, jiejie. Don’t bother with them. Forget it.”
“I can’t let it go,” Zi You coldy said. “I will tell this matter to grandfather. He’ll make this matter known to the Emperor. It must be investigated. At that time, meimei must testify.”
Zi You deliberately acted like she was furious and that she wouldn’t let the matter rest. She looked at Yu Lanxuan.
Yu Lanxuan was terrified. She suddenly fell to her knees and knelt in front of Zi You. She lowly cried, “Please don’t, jiejie! It’s my fault. I shouldn’t have spoken nonsense. Jiejie, please don’t tell Old General Mu. Spare Xuan’er’s family!”
Zi You pretended to not understand. “What does it have to do with you? You didn’t say those words right? Even if the Emperor hands down punishment, it has nothing to do with you. So why would your family need to be spared?”
Yu Lanxuan kowtowed like pounding garlic. Her tears flowed. “But if they don’t admit it, who can prove it? They would be sure to blame me then. Since I spoke of the matter first, then wouldn’t the unlucky one be me?”
“Oh…” Zi You pretended to suddenly realized. “Let’s forget it this time then. Huh! If there’s a next time, I will definitely tell grandfather and seek justice.”
The unlucky Yu Lanxuan tried to steal a chicken, but ended up losing the rice to lure it with. Only when her little head was bleeding did Zi You finally let her off.
