Old Madam Wen said indifferently, “Since you are back, please sit down, I have a happy event to tell you.”
Wen Qi Qi asked curiously, “What is the happy event?” In her heart, she knew that if the Old Madam could call it a happy event, it must be related to Wen Ruyi.
What, did Wen Ruyi gain the favor of Gu Heng?
Sure enough, in the next moment, she heard Old Madam Wen say with a smile, “I heard Madam Chen say that your Third Sister has now gained the favor of the Emperor and has been directly appointed as a Jie Yu.” As she said this, she glanced at Xu Shi. (TN: Jie Yu is ranked 3/8 where 1 is the Empress. She used to be 7/8)
Xu Shi understood what she meant.
Since Madam Chen knew the news, she would naturally have known about it as well.
Indeed, she had heard about Wen Ruyi’s promotion to Jie Yu, but she didn’t think it was a happy event, so she didn’t mention it in front of Old Madam Wen. Of course, she also admitted that she just deliberately didn’t want Old Madam Wen to know about it.
When Wen Qi Qi looked at her, she saw that the corner of Old Madam Wen’s mouth was curled up and could not be suppressed. Her gaze flashed, she nodded and agreed: “That is indeed a happy event, no wonder Grandmother looks to be in very good spirits today, and she seems to be several years younger. I really hope that Liu Jie Yu can make Grandmother so happy all the time. “
Old Madam Wen’s smile froze on her face and she frowned, “What Liu Jie Yu, that’s your Third Sister.” It should be called Wen Jie Yu.
Wen Qi Qi looked at her in surprise, “Grandmother doesn’t know?”
“What don’t I know?” Old Madam Wen was a little impatient. When she saw this granddaughter, her eyelids jumped for no good reason.
“Liu Jie Yu’s name was given by the Emperor himself. Liu Jie Yu said in front of everyone at that time that she didn’t know our Wen House, let alone remember you, Grandmother. Therefore, even if she is named a Jie Yu now, her name is still Liu Jie Yu, not Wen Jie Yu, and she has nothing to do with our Wen House.
After all, Grandmother loves her and is happy for her now that she is doing well.” Wen Qi Qi said unhurriedly.
The more Old Madam Wen listened, the more uncomfortable she became.
Wen Qi Qi was talking about Liu Jie Yu as if she was talking about a stranger who had nothing to do with them.
She was so happy when she mentioned Wen Ruyi, but now it was like a joke.
“She has lost her memory and doesn’t remember, but she is still a member of our Wen Mansion.” Old Madam Wen frowned and said unyieldingly.
“That’s what Grandmother thinks, not what Liu Jie Yu thinks.” Wen Qi Qi said without haste.
“What kind of bastard words are you saying?” Old Madam Wen became annoyed, “What do you mean by what I think and not what Liu Jie Yu thinks?” How could she say that Liu Jie Yu didn’t know her and yet she seemed to have to be related to Liu Jie Yu?
Wen Qi Qi said: “Grandmother, I know it is difficult for you to accept it, but the fact is that Third Sister is Third Sister and Liu Jie Yu is Liu Jie Yu. She has said in front of everyone that she doesn’t know our Wen family, so isn’t it a bit inappropriate for you to continue to attach yourself to her ……” At the end of the sentence, her voice was getting smaller and smaller.
Old Madam Wen was so angry that her chest rose and fell sharply.
It was only after a long time that she trembled her lips and said, “You must not instigate. I do not believe that Ruyi is that kind of person who forgets her roots ……”
“A person who forgets his or her roots can be seen to have a selfish and self-serving nature.” Wen Qi Qi interrupted, and with a change of tone, added, “I also do not believe that the Third Sister will be this kind of selfish, self-serving, forgetful person.
However, why does she have to clear her relationship with us when she opens her mouth, even though my grandmother and I treated her so well? I am really too sad ……” After saying that, she took a handkerchief to wipe the corner of her eyes with a look of extreme sadness.
