Chapter 165 – To unrestrainedly fight with outrageous people
"Great aunt as well as the several other aunts, Qing-Yan doesn't have other meanings. I just felt that my parents like peace, so since there are more people in Chu family, then there will be more people shooting off their mouths. It's hard to avoid feeling uncomfortable staying in such a place. That is why I had the thought of moving them out." Chu Qing-Yan didn't mince words. Just now she already saw their attitude to her parents, besides not shorting their food and clothing, the other respects really made people angry.
"More people then there will be more people shooting off their mouths? Qing-Yan, what do you mean by this? You are making oblique accusations to say we are harsh to your parents?" Madam Wang was unable to hold back, her tone was rather displeased.
"Qing-Yan doesn't mean it like this." Chu Qing-Yan was too lazy to debate this with her.
Chu Qing-Yan unrestrainly stood in the middle of the hall with an elegant and exquisite beauty, like a flower that was just about to bloom.
The several young girls present suddenly discovered that in such short several months of not seeing her, this Chu Qing-Yan had become more lustrous and beautiful. Moreover, she had gotten taller. Her appearance right now was really different from when she first arrived in the capital. The several young girls started to be jealous in their hearts. But after thinking that Xiao Xu was a abandoned prince that had passed his time of popularity and was now useless, their hearts immediately felt better.
In fact, a person's jealous heart was just like this. When you envy someone, you would conjure things from the selfish dark side, then mysteriously add on many bad conjectures. Afterwards, the inner heart would feel content, as if saying. 'Look, you are also like this and nothing more.'
"Confucius said 'to honor old people as we do our parents. To care for other people’s children as one's own.' Ninth younger sister, when facing the elder generation, you must have the appearance the younger generation should have. Otherwise, you will be denounced by others." Chu Cun-An the bookworm stood up, using the attitude of an older brother to teach her.
"Confucius also said 'what you don't want done to you, don't do to others.' You guys dine on lavish meals but let my parents drink clear broth and eat tofu. Don't know where you guys' so called 'treated my parents well' comes from?" Chu Qing-Yan didn't care if she tore face with them. In any case, since Big Block of Ice had spoken, she didn't mind having a catfight with them.
"Confucius said——" Chu Cun-An continued to say Confucius but Chu Qing-Yan had already become impatient and interrupted him.
"Don't always say Confucius this and that. He doesn't have that much time to come and manage such trifling matters coming from you. You should just be well-behaved and read your books. Don't always shake and sway your head, otherwise you will really become a pedantic bookworm." Chu Qing-Yan hated people like him the most, who were always pretending to be sage like, opening and closing his mouth would always be 'the ancient people had said', spending idle days by saying they would die for a good cause, when among brothers, they would pretend to be righteous, believing themselves to be infallible.
"You——" He had always been the pride of the family but was lectured by this sister that was younger than him by several years. Chu Cun-An was so infuriated that his whole face became red. Since he boasted about his accompanishment and good manners, he couldn't behave like a female, shouting abuse like a fishwife. He could only angrily say. "Confucius said only a female and nasty person is difficult to raise!"
"No better or worse than you. Don't forget the person who raised you and gave birth to you is also a female." Chu Qing-Yan didn't waste any effort and easily counterattacked.
Chu Cun-An almost spat out blood from being angered. He tossed his sleeves and sat down.
Her own son was being scolded so terribly, from the corner of her eyes, Madam Xing saw third master Chu's wife Madam Wang laughing behind her sleeves. Her heart was very upset and she stood up. Her whole face was full of an expression of being wronged as she said to Xiao Xu. "Your Highness Prince Ying, you can see that although Qing-Yan is still young, her temper is quite big. Today, she dared to be disobedient to the elders and disrespected her cousins in front of you. If it continues like this, don't know what she'll be like in the future?"
The hidden meaning being that now she was so daring, in the future she would be even worse. So the meaning was for His Highness to scold her.
Madam Xing thought that her sowing dissension would be effective, but Madam Xing guessed wrong. If it was not for Xiao Xu giving Chu Qing-Yan face, he simply would never take a step into Chu Manor. Now she wanted Xiao Xu to scold Chu Qing-Yan, then that was even more impossible.
"It's because this King has spoiled her, does Madam Xing have an objection?" Xiao Xu said indifferently and didn't even bother to look at her.
Madam Xing choked and suddenly didn't know what she ought to say. Her face had already turned red from embarrassment.
And only now did the rest of the people realize a matter. That was that Chu Qing-Yan already had His Highness Prince Ying, this huge tree to lean on, then if they clung to Chu Qing-Yan, wasn't it also equivalent to cooling off in the shade of this huge tree?
This thought had just taken form in their minds when Chu Qing-Yan started to speak. "Since nobody has any objections, then this matter is decided like this."
Elder Madam Chu immediately tried to stop this and spoke up. Her normally sharp and unkind expression now tried hard to pretend to be affable. But because she often had on a stiff stern face, she looked about thirty percent fierce and another sixty percent terrifying with a smile on her face. Not only Chu Qing-Yan, other people couldn't bear to see it too. One after another, they turned their faces away.
"Ninth girl, don't act like such a outsider to great aunt. We are all one family, why live in two different homes? If you are worried your parents will suffer grievances, great aunt can guarantee. As long as great aunt is alive, I won't let your parents be bullied."
Chu Qing-Yan laughed coldly in her heart. If it weren't for you setting an example as head of the household, how could my parents' situation in Chu Manor be like this?
"Many thanks to great aunt's kind intentions. Qing-Yan gives her thanks once again." Chu Qing-Yan's face still had an expression of refusal.
Chu Zhi-Ming stood up in a rage. But he dared not point at Chu Qing-Yan, so he turned toward Daddy Chu to roar. "Elder brother, don't forget who is your benefactor. If it was not for Chu family, how could you have your current status? 'Raise a rat to bite the sack' is talking about people like you!"
Daddy Chu glanced at him in bafflement. "I didn't see you raise a rat ah. Little flower also didn't go bite your family's rat ah!"
Chu Zhi-Ming was somewhat regretful. He shouldn't pick a pushover to pinch because his body would be splashed with the juice.
But Chu Qing-Yan had already been provoked into anger. People that bully her parents, she definitely won't let off.
Since they had already said it so clearly, then she was also unwilling to leave them a bit of face.
"Second uncle, you said these words wrong. If it weren't for my father's war exploits from back then, how could Chu family have this manor to block the wind and rain? Ten years ago, you guys wouldn't listen to explanation and drove my parents out of Chu family. Did you ever think of how to write the six words 'bite the hand that feed you'? This period of time when I entered Prince's Manor, you guys received a lot of congratulatory gifts. You privately embezzled those that entered the warehouse, yet still won't treat my parents well. If it was not for me giving material assistance, what kind of appearance would this place have now? Did you guy ever think of how to write the six words 'kick the benefactor in the teeth'?"
Chu Qing-Yan stressed each word as she unhurriedly said this. Her gaze swept by the people seated. None of them dared to lift their heads to meet that pair of clear and penetrating eyes.
Elder Master Chu and Elder Madam Chu's faces were red from being angered, but they couldn't say a word, after all, what Chu Qing-Yan said was the truth. But they didn't feel ashamed, rather they felt Chu Qing-Yan had a gift for gab and couldn't be exploited by them anymore. So their hearts were full of anger from this.
With the cold eye of a bystander after the little guy fought with this outrageous family, Xiao Xu stood up in satisfaction. Afterwards, he said to Gu Rong and Gu Yi. "A fixed date is the same as an accidental date. Then just move today!"
The matter of moving house was set.
Chu family's people didn't dare to say another word.
Xiao Xu swept a glance at the people present, and in a clear and cold voice said. "This king doesn't want people to bother this king's father-in-law and mother-in-law from this day forward. Therefore——"
His gaze pressed down slightly and everyone lowered their heads and nodded one after another in agreement. They didn't even dare to breath loudly.
Chu Qing-Yan didn't take notice of father-in-law and mother-in-law, these words. Her heart was very happy. Big Block of Ice, from his expedition on the battlefield had a strong aura coming from his whole body that couldn't be hidden!
Only Daddy Chu's gaze flashed slightly.
