Ouyang Ke started to bend her knees to kneel down. With so many maidservants around, if this was spread out, wouldn’t it turn into Ouyang Nuan bullying her own sister? Ouyang Nuan looked at Hongyu and Hongyu hurried to support Ouyang Ke and pull her up. “What is Second Xiaojie saying? What anger and what offense? First Xiaojie didn’t mention it to anyone!”
“Hongyu is right. I thought meimei came to find me for something important. I didn’t put the earlier events in my mind. Baihe was at fault. She bumped into meimei. It’s good that you weren’t injured. You were just impulsive. You didn’t need to come here specifically to apologize.” Ouyang Nuan looked at Ouyang Ke’s expression and coldly sneered in her heart. If you really came to apologize, why did you make so much noise? Isn’t it to let other people know that you came here? If I really let you kneel down, people who don’t know the story will think that I’m bullying you!
“Don’t stand out here, Second Xiaojie. Enter the room,” Wenxiu and Zilin advised. Ouyang Ke entered the room. Hongyu helped her sit down before returning to stand next to Ouyang Nuan.
Ouyang Nuan comforted, “Meimei should advise mother when you go back. It’s normal for sisters to quarrel. Have her rest well so she won’t get sicker. It is difficult for Li Yiniang to manage the household alone.”
Ouyang Ke originally had her head lowered. When she heard these words, she hated that she couldn’t slap Ouyang Nuan. But she remembered Nee Lin’s words and she hardened her heart. She suddenly stood up and kneeled down to Ouyang Nuan. Everyone in the room was stunned. Fang mama hurriedly took the maidservants out and left only Hongyu behind.
“Jiejie, what happened today was my fault. Although you and I are not born from the same mother, we still grew up together. I always saw you and brother as biological siblings…… When brother fell into the lake, I was so anxious that I did not sleep for a whole night.” Ouyang Ke wiped tears off with her handkerchief.
She said pitifully, “Mother sincerely loves you both and treats you both even better than how she treats me sometimes. When she heard that I offended jiejie, mother was extremely angry and told me to come here to apologize to jiejie. I also feel that I wronged jiejie, so I have to come here……”
Ouyang Nuan looked her crying pitifully like pear blossoms in the rain. She then thought of how Ouyang Ke admitted that Nee Lin planned her brother’s death, when she was by the riverside in her previous life. She knew that Ouyang Ke and Nee Lin were acting to gain her trust. The smile on her face turned gentler, but held a touch of imperceptible coldness.
