Chapter 588 – The secret to her background (2)
Su Luo faintly felt that her background contained a huge secret, and this secret would topple all her former knowledge.
“I will tell you if you accompany this king to eat some breakfast.” Nangong Liuyun said with an air of complacency.
Su Luo was restless in her heart, yet her face kept smiling: “Okay.” Nangong Liuyun liked to use this trick the most, Su Luo was already used to it.
There was nothing to eating breakfast, in any case, she was rather hungry.
Nangong Liuyun pulled Su Luo along by the hand, two people unhurriedly walked and were sightseeing the scenery along the way. Afterwards, they slowly walked towards the dining hall.
The breakfast was very sumptuous.
They were only the two of them, however, the dishes arranged on the round table was packed full to the brim. Just seeing it made people drool.
Su Luo did not wait for Nangong Liuyun to say start and just started to eat right away.
When Nangong Liuyun saw this, he smiled bitterly and shook his head.
Although this girl’s expression didn’t change, but her heart might have some issues with him right now.
Just when he was smiling bitterly, suddenly, a crab stuffing steamed dumpling was placed in his bowl.
Su Luo smilingly looked at him: “Why are you looking at me? Eat ah.” Finished eating, he could explain her background, she was waiting for it after all.
“This king’s Luo girl is beautiful, far more tastier than these food.” Nangong Liuyun proudly picked up the crab stuffing steamed dumpling. He politely and gracefully started to eat.
Su Luo sent a glare towards him: “Have you eaten your fill yet?”
“Just this anxious?” Nangong Liuyun raised an eyebrow and laughed.
“Precisely just this anxious.” Su Luo glared at him. Concerning their background, who wouldn’t be anxious?
Su Luo was continuously glared at him while he was eating his meal: “This time, you ought to have finished eating right?”
After Nangong Liuyun had enjoyed finishing that crab stuffing steamed dumpling, he then unhurriedly put down his chopsticks.
“Fine, since it’s like this, this king will tell you.” Nangong Liuyun lovingly and in a spoiling manner flicked the tip of her nose, “But after knowing the truth, you cannot cry.”
“Are you truly taking me as a three years old child that still cries? Don’t think of me as so childish okay?” Su Luo gave him a push, “All right, I am properly prepared mentally, quickly tell me.”
“Uh-huh.” Nangong Liuyun lightly coughed to show the importance of this, “This background of yours, mentioning it is really complicated. Up until now, this king still has not completely investigated it thoroughly.”
“Then reveal everything you already know, maybe I can offer a bit of insight.” Su Luo looked at him with determination.
“This talk must start from fifteen years ago.” Nangong Liuyun held Su Luo’s hand as he slowly narrated some of the matters he had investigated.
This was a very common and melodramatic story.
In those days, Su Zian extremely doted on a young concubine, Yang Shi, who gave birth to a baby girl. Because it was a difficult birth, Yang Shi fainted on the spot, and that infant hadn’t been born for long before it stopped breathing.
That day, there was a different, natural phenomenon, the whole sky was multi-colored, a rainbow was spread out. A divine bird flew in a circle above the entire imperial capital.
At this auspicious moment, if it was spread out that the great General Su’s manor had a dead infant, then that was very ominous. With regards to Yang Shi, that was like drowning in calamity.
Yang Shi’s wet nurse was extremely anxious, but luckily, she picked up a female infant in front of her door called Su Luo. This was indeed a golden opportunity bestowed by the heavens ah.
In order not to let Yang Shi lose being favored, the wet nurse then changed the female infant into an undergarment personally embroidered by Yang Shi. She placed the infant in a red swaddling cloth and delivered her to Yang Shi, then switched out the dead infant.
Yang Shi was dizzy, she was completely unaware that her own biological daughter had already died. Now, the baby girl lying beside her was already not her own.
Seeing Yang Shi showing deep affection towards the little girl, the wet nurse really didn’t dare to speak about the real situation.
She could only make do the best she could after the mistake and just continue on with the mistake like this.
Chapter 589 – The secret to her background (3)
Before five years old, because when she was born there was the different natural phenomenon and the multi-colored lights, Su Luo had a blessed childhood of having everyone circling around her wishes.
Yang Shi also, because of Su Luo, was unfailingly pampered and spoiled by Su Zian. Even Madam Su’s all kinds of jealous hatred could not do anything about Yang Shi.
The wet nurse, seeing this situation, naturally concealed everything in the dark tightly, not daring to leak out half a sentence.
However, a person relying on looks, once the looks declined, love also slackened. The love ran out and then the kindness disappeared.
Su Zian did not dote on her as in the past, then Yang Shi, lacking resourcefulness, naturally would be overthrown by Madam Su.
The pitiful Yang Shi, even till death, she did not know that Su Luo was not her biological daughter. Her biological daughter had already died at the time of her birth.
Yang Shi, when alive, had already given back the contract of servitude to the wet nurse. The wet nurse already didn’t have any fondness to remain at Su Manor and left right away.
As to Wang Laoqi, he was the person the wet nurse later married. The wet nurse’s relationship with Wang Laoqi was very good, as a result, when she was not careful, she told this matter to Wang Laoqi.
However, a secret, if only one person knew it themselves, then that could be called a secret. If it was known by a second person…this secret simply could not stay a secret, simply impossible to continue guarding it.
Nangong Liuyun tenderly comforted Su Luo by stroking her hair: “In the beginning, this king did not believe it, after thorough investigations from many angles, then I was convinced that what Wang Laoqi said was the truth.”
“So, to say it clearly, I am not the biological daughter of Su Zian, right?” Su Luo had one hand holding up her chin, her expression the same as always.
Hearing she was not Su Zian’s biological daughter, Su Luo let out an enormous breath in relief.
She was not very fond of Su Zian, if her body did not have his blood flowing through it, Su Luo naturally was very happy.
But Su Luo also knew that with Su Zian’s easily swayed temper, in the future, he certainly would be out of luck. At that time, if she was hindered by filial piety and did things that violated her own wishes, then that would really make a person be out of sorts.
“Yes, you are not Su Manor’s Fourth Miss.” Nangong Liuyun firmly held her hand, without the identity as the Fourth Miss of Su Manor, she would merely be introduced as a commoner.
“Then this truly is too great, I really am afraid of inheriting something bad from his body.” Su Luo happily smiled, “Why is it you didn’t tell me earlier? This is a good thing, why must you conceal it from me?”
“You, this girl, really….” Nangong Liuyun forced a smile and repeatedly shook his head, looks like before, he was worried over nothing.
According to normal reasoning, knowing their father and mother were not their biological ones, wouldn’t they be heartbrokenly grieving while weeping to the skies and grabbing at the earth? This girl’s reaction was often surprising.
In fact, how could he know? This fourth Miss Su was not the fourth Miss Su, her inner being had already been switched to another person.
The current Su Luo had completely no feelings towards Su Zian, this cheap father, and she had no impressions of Yang Shi that had died earlier. Not being their daughter, as far as she was concerned, this was a good thing.
“Since I am not Su Zian’s daughter, then who are my biological parents? Were you able to find this information?” Su Luo had both hands cupping her face, looking at Nangong Liuyun with puzzlement. She hoped her biological parents were not troublesome characters.
Nangong Liuyun slowly shook his head, somewhat defeatedly sighing: “Very difficult to check, I need time.”
“Don’t you find this odd?” A sharp light flashed through Su Luo’s eyes, “At that time, Yang Shi’s daughter had just stopped breathing and I was placed at the wet nurse family’s doorway. How can there be such a timely thing? This point, isn’t it worth being suspicious of?”
“Yes, at that time, the wet nurse was being used by someone.” Nangong Liuyun seriously said to Su Luo. “ If Yang Shi’s infant daughter hasn’t died, she could not possibly offer you shelter.”
