The word “grandniece” managed to make the head madam’s two female guards feel disgusted. The two asked Feng Yu Heng some follow-up questions. After being certain of this matter, they immediately sent Feng Yu Heng off. One of them then quickly entered the temple to report.
Feng Yu Heng was perfectly content with being chased away. Humming a song, she walked along a small path in the palace that was covered in snow. Just like this, she casually returned to the new courtyard, and she made use of her space once more to enter the room again.
Madam Lu was still laying there with the bridal veil covering her face. A voice, however, came from the outside. After a bit of an uproar, an old woman’s voice heavily said: “What is it. I haven’t come out of the temple for so many years that the servants of this palace don’t even recognize me?”
Once this was said, a group of servants kneeled on the ground and said in unison: “This servant greets head madam!”
The earlier old woman’s voice was raised once more, asking the servants of the courtyard: “Where did this new wife come from?”
One of the servants said: “This servant is not very clear. I just heard that she came from the central region. It seems that she is from Xiao Zhou.”
The old woman snorted then said: “The Duan Mu family does indeed have a branch family in Xiao Zhou. That old bastard is even willing to put his hands on the younger generation of his relatives!” She paused then suddenly said: “Open the door! I’m going in to take a look!”
How could the servants in the courtyard dare to object the head madam’s order. Moreover, whenever a new madam entered the palace, they should be going to kowtow to the head madam.
A young servant trotted toward the door, and Feng Yu Heng was about to dive back into her space; however, she suddenly heard a voice come from outside the door. It was a man, saying in a loud voice: “Dear wife! How come you’ve come out of the temple today? Could it be that you also heard that this leader was about to bring in a 13th concubine, and you personally wanted to come and take a look?”
Feng Yu Heng’s eyes lit up. Her small success caused her to curl her lips up. She knew that Duan Mu An Guo had arrived. The leader of the three northern provinces had betrayed Da Shun and defected to the enemy, Duan Mu An Guo. The grandfather of the third prince and gatekeeper of Da Shun’s North, Duan Mu An Guo, she would finally have a chance to meet him.
Feng Yu Heng was very frank, snuck into a closet that she had already scouted out. She then opened the closet a crack, allowing her to see the people that walked into the room.
Hearing the sounds, Duan Mu An Guo definitely did not come here alone. She had already heard about the custom of guests playing pranks on the newlyweds in the bridal chamber. When it came to women, Duan Mu An Guo loved liveliness. The previous night, the granny had told her how she should resolve the situation if guests did come to play pranks. She trusted that there would definitely be officials from the North behind Duan Mu An Guo. In fact, there should even be guests from Qian Zhou.
This was the surprise that she had been waiting for! Duan Mu An Guo, since this imperial daughter has come. How can I not provide you with a gift.
The chatter outside grew louder, and there were still people shouting and screaming to see the new wife inside. Duan Mu An Guo was clearly in quite a good mood. After letting out a loud laugh, he said to the head wife: “Madam, come inside with me. Have that girl kowtow to you.”
The head madam snorted coldly, “She should indeed kowtow to me. After all, I am also considered her elder.”
“Hm?” Duan Mu An Guo was stunned then said: “Dear wife, you must have become muddled from spending so much time in the temple to say such nonsense. Let’s go! Come in with me!”
Once this was said, the sound of footsteps grew louder. That lock went “clank” and someone twisted it off before a servant could unlock it. The door was then pushed open, and Feng Yu Heng saw an old man in his 70s walking in. He looked to be in good health, and a red glow could be seen on his face. While walking, a wind could be heard blowing. It was very majestic and mighty.
She squinted her eyes, a cold light appearing in them. Duan Mu An Guo, if she brought out a handgun at this moment, she could kill him on the spot, and she could ensure that nobody could discover her movements.
But this could not be done. Xuan Tian Ming’s army was still on the way. Outside of the North, Qian Li’s soldiers hidden all over. If Duan Mu An Guo died right now, the three northern provinces would immediately be taken over by Qian Zhou. These people that had been citizens of Da Shun would all become citizens of Qian Zhou. Something that had belonged to Da Shun for a few centuries would be destroyed in an instant. This was something that she could not do.
Feng Yu Heng settled herself down and did not continue to think about what she could not do. She just stared at Duan Mu An Guo, adjusting her position to keep an eye on where he moved. Very quickly, the front had become the back, as a rowdy group of people filled the room.
Suddenly, she heard Duan Mu An Guo let out a “huh” sound from the front. He then laughed once more. While laughing, he said to the granny at his side: “You’ve done a good job of teaching! As I said, granny Li is definitely an expert in teaching the girls. This girl is actually so sensible, climbing into bed on her own.”
Feng Yu Heng looked through the gaps in the crowd and saw that Duan Mu An Guo was extremely addicted to sex. He actually reached his large hand under the blankets in front of so many people. With a lusty smile on his face, he felt around for a long time, and the smile on his face gradually went away.
The granny had a pair of very observant eyes. Upon seeing Duan Mu An Guo’s expression, she immediately realized that something was not quite right. This new wife actually did not wait for the master to enter before climbing into the sheets. This was completely off!
Just as she was about to say something, the head madam, who had been watching coldly from the side, spoke up. It was still the same old voice, saying: “What is it. Is there some kind of special feeling when feeling your own grandniece? How does it compare to the other women?”
“What exactly are you saying?” Duan Mu An Guo became furious, lifting the blankets. A woman’s body without any reservation lay completely naked on the bed in front of everyone.
Nobody had reacted to what had happened, but they all reflexively stared wide-eyed at the bed. Looking over, these men that were similar to Duan Mu An Guo not only did not feel any lust for the body that lay there, but they were also all shocked. Someone had even shouted: “Wasn’t it said that the new madam was just 13-years-old? This…”
These words represented what everyone was thinking. It also represented what Duan Mu An Guo was thinking. He immediately glared at the granny. At this moment, the granny was kneeling on the ground. With the trembling, she had almost become a puddle of mud, but she could not understand why had a young girl become… “Huh?” The granny was stunned and quickly looked up at the bed, finding that the person on the bed did not move, and the face was still covered.
At this time, Duan Mu An Guo began to holler: “Who is she? Who exactly is she?”
The granny, however, was truly shocked. She recalled what the head madam had just said. What was it… grandniece? Could it be… “Could it be that’s madam Lu?” She shrieked in a daze. Pointing at the bed, she said: “Master, that might be madam Lu! Your grandniece, the madam Lu that came from Xiao Zhou!”
Duan Mu An Guo did not manage to react in his anger. At this time, the head madam was a bit muddled. When she had heard grandniece, she had thought younger. After all, Duan Mu An Guo loving younger girls was something that everyone in the North knew. But at this time, the one lying on the bed was clearly a middle-aged woman, and this old woman was so fat that her belly and waist seemed to blend together. This sort of person could not possibly have caught Duan Mu An Guo’s attention.
Although the head madam had not come out of the temple for many years, she could still be considered to be a little smarter. She immediately realized that she had been plotted against. The opposition had used this method to get her out, to have her see this play. It was clear that the goal was to drag her out of the temple and push the relationship between her and Duan Mu An Guo even further into disrepair.
Unfortunately, she clearly knew that there was a scam here, but she was already standing here. In regards to Duan Mu An Guo’s dumbfounded expression, just looking at him once would be completely unbearable.
The head madam took a deep breath then took a couple steps forward, removing the head cover herself. This immediately revealed madam Lu’s horrified face.
Duan Mu An Guo took a deep breath, fire shooting from his eyes. He had subconsciously pulled out a sword from his attendant’s hands then moved to fiercely stab at the bed.
The attendant was quick to react, immediately stopping his movements. He then urgently said: “My lord, do not be rash. She has clearly had her acupuncture points pressed. There is a conspiracy at hand. If she dies, the truth will be lost!”
Duan Mu An Guo immediately calmed down. In the end, he was the one that controlled the three provinces. He was already old, but his mind could not be compared to the average person. At the time that it was revealed, an anger had filled his heart, but now that he had calmed down, he had already made a few guesses. He gestured for the attendant to release madam Lu’s acupuncture points. That person was not polite, going over and pressing a few points on her body. Madam Lu could then be heard screaming, as she dove under the blankets, trembling in fear.
Feng Yu Heng sat in the closet, holding her small face in her hands, as she experienced the joy of watching this play. The observing crowd began to quietly discuss how lord Duan Mu had brought his own grandniece to his bed. She figured that based on their ability to gossip, as long as this matter made its way out of the palace, everyone in Song Zhou would know about it within half a day. Of course, she definitely did not believe that this would cause any trouble for Duan Mu An Guo, but it would have the effect of disgusting some people.
She, Feng Yu Heng, had quietly snuck into the North. How could she leave quietly too? Visiting without bringing gifts was not her style.
In the inner room, Duan Mu An Guo had already inquired about the entire situation from madam Lu. He then confronted the head madam’s female guards and verified with the granny that this was an “escaped girl” situation. Duan Mu An Guo immediately took a deep breath. In his many years, based on his understanding of Da Shun, especially after one year of secret investigation, the girl that he had wanted to bring in, why did it sound more and more like imperial daughter Ji An, the capital’s malignant star? Could it be… that she had already entered the North?
“Quickly!” A cold look exploded into Duan Mu An Guo’s eyes, as he loudly ordered: “Lock up the palace and all of Song Zhou’s gates. Immediately begin searching the palace and the city. That girl must be caught alive and brought back! Remember, she must be caught alive!”
After saying this, he dispersed the crowd then quickly walked out. Right before leaving, he did not forget to take care of madam Lu: “Take the one on the bed out and have her executed!”
Nobody expressed any objections to this. Madam Lu was very quickly dragged off, and the once lively room was left completely empty. Feng Yu Heng came out of the closet and moved her body. Moving on tiptoe toward the door, she was about to take a look out; however, who knew that an unexpected sound would suddenly come from the roof.
She was shocked and immediately realized that the roof had already been taken over by Duan Mu An Guo’s hidden guards. Based on a hidden guard’s abilities, they would definitely be able to capture her.
Without saying a single word, she moved her right hand to her wrist and prepared to enter her space. At this time, however, an arm wrapped around her neck from behind and pulled her back at an oddly fast speed. They then leaped up and hid in the beams above the ceiling.
Feng Yu Heng was extremely shocked. Moving her wrist, she was about to bring out a tranquilizer needle to take care of the person that had attacked her; however, she heard a familiar voice say: “You idiot, don’t move!”
