Su Mo Li soothed the sad Old Madam Su and waited for her to fall asleep before returning with Cheng Tao to the Cui Zhu Courtyard.
Huang Fan had already prepared a bath and clean clothes.
Cui Zhu Courtyard was very quiet, and the maids went about their duties.
Meanwhile, in the Meiyuan Courtyard, Su Jia Xuan was gripping her handkerchief, her small face full of tangled expressions.
Finally, she seemed to have figured something out and stood up: “Dong Zhi, Second Sister is being punished, let’s go and see her.”
Dong Zhi was slightly startled, her eyes full of worry: “Miss, do you really want to go?”
Su Jia Xuan pursed her lips and nodded her head vigorously.
When the two arrived at the ancestral shrine, they heard Su Xin Zhen inside, cursing Su Mo Li.
Su Jia Xuan stood outside and bit her lip, her childish voice sounded: “Big Sister did nothing, the wrong person is Second Sister, why is she still so abusive to Big Sister ……”.
Dong Zhi sighed but didn’t know how to answer Su Jia Xuan properly.
“Xuan’er? Are you coming?” Su Xin Zhen seemed to have heard Su Jia Xuan’s voice and immediately raised her voice to ask.
Su Jia Xuan didn’t answer, but walked in, “Second Sister.”
The moment she saw Su Jia Xuan, Su Xin Zhen’s eyes lit up, and she quickly got up and grabbed Su Jia Xuan’s hand, “Good Sister, go and beg Father to let me go.”
Su Jia Xuan stared at her, “But Daddy told you to reflect here, does Sister know she’s wrong?”
“Ha Ha!” Su Xin Zhen laughed sarcastically, “What’s wrong with me? She should never have come back! If she hadn’t come back, how could I have been punished!”
Su Jia Xuan looked at Su Xin Zhen incredulously, “But you were the one who pushed Big Sister!”
“You shut up!” Su Xin Zhen turned back sharply, “Am I your sister or is Su Mo Li your sister? Why are you helping Su Mo Li in every way?”
“Su Jia Xuan, don’t you forget that you are my own sister from the same father and mother!”
Su Jia Xuan opened her mouth, a hint of grievance appeared on her small face, “Master said, if you know your mistake, you should correct it, not to mention that Big Sister is also my sister.”
“In the end, you just don’t want to go to Daddy’s to plead for me, right?” Su Xin Zhen looked across at Su Jia Xuan with mockery on her face, “I see, you want me to be punished by our father, you want Father to dislike me so that you can be Father’s favorite child, right?”
Su Jia Xuan’s face turned white: “I didn’t, I didn’t mean it …… obviously Sister you’re wrong, you ……”
Su Xin Zhen slapped Su Jia Xuan directly in the face.
Su Jia Xuan, who was only an eight-year-old child, stumbled and almost fell to the ground.
“Second Miss, you, how could you hit Third Miss!” Dong Zhi was full of incredulity, hugging Su Jia Xuan and looking at the slap mark on her face, her heart ached.
Su Jia Xuan was stubborn not to let the tears fall, instead, she pursed her lips and whispered, “Dong Zhi, let’s go.”
Su Xin Zhen who had hit Su Jia Xuan was also stunned, and only reacted when Su Jia Xuan had left, rushing to Su Jia Xuan’s back and shouting, “Xuan Er you come back! You get back here!”
However, no one paid any attention to her.
When she left the ancestral shrine, Su Jia Xuan’s tears fell down.
“Third Miss, I’ll go get the doctor.” When Dong Zhi saw this, she was about to go outside, but was stopped by Su Jia Xuan, who whispered, “Let’s go back, I’ll sleep for a while.”
Dong Zhi was very anxious, but Su Jia Xuan was very determined, and could only lead her back to Meiyuan Court, where she slept for an hour.
After an hour’s sleep, Su Jia Xuan seemed to forget what had just happened and plunged into the small kitchen.
Li Qianshi, who got the news, hurriedly came to Meiyuan Courtyard and saw Su Jia Xuan sitting in the kitchen, frowning slightly: “Xuan’er, your sister didn’t do it on purpose, but you too. Why did you go to the ancestral shrine?”.
“Knowing your sister is angry, you still said those words to anger her, you this girl is really ……”
Su Jia Xuan focused her eyes and looked at Li Qianshi before opening her mouth slightly: “Mother, I was worried about my sister, that’s why I wanted to go over there ……”.
Li Qianshi saw this and sighed: “Just wait until your sister has calmed down, then you go and apologize to your sister. You are sisters in the end, and your sister will not blame you.”
“Mother ……” Su Jia Xuan hung her eyes, her eyelashes quivered, “Mother thinks it’s my fault?”
The gentle question stunned Li Qianshi, who then said: “Mother knows that Xuan’er is well-intentioned, but Xuan’er, how can you say that your Second Sister is wrong? What’s wrong with your Second Sister?
After all, you’re still young and don’t know anything, you’ve hurt your Second Sister’s heart by saying these things you know?
So wait until tomorrow, then go and apologize to your Second Sister, she is already in a bad mood after being punished by your father, and this will make her even more heartbroken.
You’re her own sister, you can’t turn to an outsider.”
Su Jia Xuan looked up to Li Qianshi and saw that Li Qianshi’s eyes were full of impatience, and her mouth turned downwards: ” Okay.”
Dong Zhi saw this on the side and felt anxious. Obviously, Second Miss was wrong, why should Third Miss apologize!
Only when she saw Su Jia Xuan’s well-behaved appearance did Li Qianshi showed her satisfaction: “Good, you shouldn’t stay in the kitchen every day, Mother has something else to do, so I’ll leave first.”
She said, reaching out her hand to touch Su Jia Xuan’s head, but Su Jia Xuan dodged it.
Li Qianshi didn’t think much about it and left directly.
Su Jia Xuan did not leave the kitchen, she sat in her seat straight into the evening before she developed a high fever.
This alarmed the people of the Prime Minister’s Residence, and all the people flooded into the Meiyuan Garden.
After Su Mo Li showed her face, she turned off the path and came to the ancestral shrine.
There were two old Momos guarding the entrance to the ancestral shrine, but it was already late at night so they were dozing off directly.
Su Mo Li lifted her right hand and opened it.
When the breeze blew, the powder in the palm of her hand directly scattered.
The two old Momos fell asleep directly.
Su Mo Li walked into the ancestral shrine dressed in white, the faint candlelight flickered a few times. She turned her head and took a look at Su Xin Zhen who was lying asleep on the ground.
Reflecting on herself?
Not long after, Su Mo Li walked to Su Xin Zhen, Cheng Tao and Huang Fan jumped straight in through the window, holding two buckets of well water in their hands. Not a single drop spilled on the ground.
The two of them came over.
Su Mo Li lifted one bucket and poured it directly on Su Xin Zhen.
The water from the well was freezing cold, and even though it was summer, it was still very bone-chilling.
Su Xin Zhen was just about to scream when the Cheng Tao struck her mute acupuncture point.
Therefore, she could only open her mouth wide and jump up.
When she saw Su Mo Li, her eyes widened, and she seemed to be shocked to see Su Mo Li here.
Su Mo Li quirked the corner of her lips, her pair of eyes full of deep emotion. The previous weakness was nowhere to be seen!
Reaching out, she dragged Su Xin Zhen over, holding her head directly into the bucket of water: “Didn’t Second Sister want to jump into the pool? To make up for Second Sister’s regret, I specially fetched several buckets of water for you to play with ……”.
The rising voice was echoing hollowly in the ancestral shrine.
Su Xin Zhen reared up from the bucket and looked into the laughing eyes of Su Mo Li, her eyes suddenly became frightened, and she couldn’t help shivering.
“Sister, have fun, Elder Sister will definitely accompany you to the end.” Su Mo Li said and once again pressed Su Xin Zzhen into the water bucket.
Su Xin Zhen struggled as she was suffocated, but was firmly held down by Su Mo Li.
As death suffused her body, Su Xin Zhen was afraid ……
When Su Xin Zhen thought she was going to die, she suddenly breathed in some air, but in the next second, she was once again pressed into the water.
One after another, it was life was worse than death.
Half an hour later, Su Xin Zhen was paralyzed on the ground, gasping for air.
Looking at Su Mo Li’s back as she departed, Su Xin Zhen gulped, she was the devil, she was the devil!
The author has something to say: The next chapter continues to screw Su Xin Zhen.
