Miserable Official Wife vs Mistress With Upper Hand (2)
After reading the whole story line, Gu Shengyin asked the system what the timeline was and breathed a sigh of relief.
Fortunately, it was when the heroine, Liang Chenyu, had not yet married. It was not the fourth year of Xiande1. Apart from Liang Chenyu having just reaching the marriageable age, she still had one year left before marrying into Zhenbei Wangfu.
After reading the original story line, Gu Shengyin had already thought of how to properly deal with that pair of a slag man and lowly woman.
Qin Yuanzheng? Don’t you like your biaomei2? I can help fulfill your wish. When I am helping you fulfill your wish, I don’t know if you would still be so happy.
Zhang Mingshu? Aren’t you whole-heartedly devoted to your biaoge3? If he doesn’t love you, I’d like to see what you, an orphan, could rely on to stand in a filthy place like Zhenbei Wangfu.
She slowly got up. The maid keeping watch outside the canopy veil heard the movement and promptly helped her pull aside the veil.
“Is the Young Lady awake?”
“En.” Gu Shengyin responded lazily.
The cotton curtain embroidered with a light-colored coiled orchid was carefully rolled and fastened at the sides. The maid, Jianjia, looked at Gu Shengyin’s face that was gradually blooming4 and held her breath.
Even if she grew up with the Young Lady, she couldn’t help but blush every time she saw the Young Lady’ lazy appearance in the morning.
Not overlooking the envy in the maid’s eyes, Gu Shengyin thought to herself that this Liang Chenyu should have an elegant appearance.
Sure enough, although she was still young in age, the delicate and beautiful face of the girl who appeared in the mirror had just begun to bloom just enough to see how beautiful her appearance in the future would be.
Was Qin Yuanzheng blind? How could he leave such a beauty like this alone?
After the maid had finished tidying up her appearance, Gu Shengyin went to pay respects to her elders just like how she did every day in the past.
If you aren’t already doing so, please read this at the original site, tranquillibrary.com.
Taifu fu‘s Lao tai, also known as Liang Chenyu’s paternal grandmother and Eldest Princess Ronghua, was considered to be a senior in the clan. She was the current Emperor’s closely blood-related paternal grandaunt and was also close friends with Lao Zhenbei Wangfei back in the past.
“Grandma’s Yu’er, you have finally come.” Eldest Princess Ronghua was nearly 60 years old and had taken excellent care of her health. Her fine black hair, with not one bit of white hair, was carefully rolled up into a bun and decorated with dove egg-shaped ruby head ornaments in different sizes, manifesting a refined appearance.
Eldest Princess Ronghua had numerous grandchildren but only had three granddaughters. Out of the three, Liang Chenyu was the most favored.
Gu Shengyin blinked and took advantage of cuddling into her grandmother’s embrace like a spoiled child: “Today, isn’t Yu’er the first one to pay respects to grandma?”
Eldest Princess Ronghua laughed: “Yes, yes. Grandma’s Yu’er is the most filial.”
This was heard by the Second Young Lady, Liang Jinyu, who just came in. She covered her mouth and smiled: “Grandmother, you have so many Yu’ers, which Yu’er is the most filial?”
Eldest Princess Ronghua was truly amused this time: “Your mouth is so poor. My Yu’ers are all the most filial.”
In fact, everyone all knew that the Yu’er in Eldest Princess’ mouth was only Liang Chenyu.
Liang Chenyu was the eldest granddaughter of Taifu fu. When she was born, she was named Chenyu and everyone in the family called her Yu’er as her nickname. It wasn’t until the Second Young Lady, Jinyu, was born that everyone remembered that this generation’s granddaughters all had the character ‘yu5‘. Could it be that all would be called Yu’er?
After some discussion, it was ultimately decided that Yu’er was Liang Chenyu’s exclusive name. The rest of the granddaughters would be called by the second character in their name. Second Young Lady Liang Jinyu was called Jin’er and Fourth Young Lady Liang Linyu was changed to Lin’er.
As for the concubine-born daughters, they were not ranked in the family.
From this, the extent the family favored Liang Chenyu could be seen.
