“Don’t cry, meimei. I have never blamed you. I’m very happy that you can say such words to me already!” Ouyang Nuan seemed to pleasantly comfort her. She personally pulled her up and sat her in a chair. Then she signaled to Hongyu to fetch water.
After Ouyang Nuan repeated that she didn’t blame her, Ouyang Ke finally reluctantly left. She seemed to be very reluctant to leave her jiejie. Ouyang Nuan thought that although Ouyang Ke was easily irritated, she was Nee Lin’s daughter in the end. The hypocrisy of the two people was really as if they were carved out of a mold.
Fang mama looked at her Xiaojie. “Xiaojie, did Second Xiaojie come to apologize to you?”
Ouyang Nuan gently nodded. Fang mama couldn’t help but sneer. “She was just brandishing her teeth and claws to hit you. Now, she knew that something was wrong, so she came to apologize. How can things be so easy?! Don’t be deceived by her, Xiaojie.
“You don’t know that Second Xiaojie is young, but she has a lot of schemes. She has been secretly going to Laoye to complain that Shaoye bullies her. The heavens know that Shaoye has never paid attention to her and never bullied her! At such a young age, she’s already telling tales. There must be some conspiracy. You have to be careful!”
Ouyang Nuan smiled. “Yes. She smiled so sweetly that I’m afraid Nee Lin promised her something. We have to be careful.”
That night, Ouyang Nuan dawdled and did not go to sleep. Instead, she was reading under a lamp. Fang mama and Hongyu did not urge her, making the first-rank maidservants Wenxiu and Zilin feel strange. Normally, First Xiaojie went to sleep very early. Why did she change her habits tonight? She even had everyone stand guard outside and didn’t light the lanterns? But they knew that the First Xiaojie was different from the past, so they didn’t dare to ask. They could only stand guard outside the house.
They could only hear the sounds of the night watchmen in the quiet night. Ouyang Nuan turned a page over and inadvertently saw Fang mama who was guarding. She put down her book and said, “Fang mama, go rest. It’s fine with Hongyu guarding here.”
“First Xiaojie, I feel uneasy and certainly won’t be able to sleep. But do you really think that they would be so bold? After all, this is the inner courtyard. Who would dare……?”
“I forced Ouyang Ke’s true appearance out today. Nee Lin loves her daughter, so she will certainly make a move ahead of time. I think that it’s going to be either tonight or tomorrow night. It’s better to be careful.”
“Who is it?! Why are you sneaking around?!” Ouyang Nuan finished speaking and a mama in the courtyard suddenly shouted.
