Wretched Original Spouse vs Top Mistress (7)
At that time, he simply thought that whoever had the honor of marrying that kind of little girl would certainly hold her in the palm of his hands and love her dearly for a lifetime. Who would have thought that such a joke would unexpectedly come out from Zhenbei Wangfu.
However, he also knew that if this matter really spread out of hand, it would be a huge blow towards Taifu fu and her reputation.
“Zhen will send down a decree and rebuke how Zhenbei Wang‘s family management is not strict enough. Grandmother, please take care of your health.” Ultimately, he thus said.
The act of Princess Ronghua crying was originally exaggerating her true thoughts and feelings. Now that she received the desired result, she no longer continued.
Meanwhile, Meng shi was sitting in Zhenbei Wangfu’s hall.
“I don’t know what matter Meng furen had come for?” Although Zhenbei Wangfei was surprised how the other person had turned up without being invited dressed in such a careful way, not to mention Taifu fu being heavily trusted by the Holy One and Meng shi being a future relative by marriage, she still put on a smile across her face.
Meng furen gently raised the teacup in front of her with her hand and lightly blew on it several times. In the end, she did not speak.
“I don’t dare undertake Wangfei‘s great kindness. Merely, I heard that an orphaned biao xiao jie grew up together with shizi in Zhenbei Wangfu. I don’t know if it is possible to meet her?” Meng shi indifferently said.
Hearing Ming shi mention Zhang Mingshu, Zhenbei Wangfei‘s complexion obviously became unnatural.
When she heard the other person’s words, she laughed: “Furen is talking about my maiden family’s niece, Mingshu. I pitied her still being young in age yet losing both her parents, so I took her in and raised her. How did Meng furen know her?”
Meng shi gently placed the teacup on the table. Although the action was not strong, the teacup still made a “ke” sound.
Meng shi had a smile yet not a smile: “I originally did not know; however, a few days ago as luck would have it, I went out to handle affairs and saw your family shizi and a white-clothed woman appearing intimate. Even furens were part of the onlookers speaking, which gave me a fright.”
Her expression completely cooled down: “I never knew when I, Liang Mengshi, had such a daughter!”
Zhenbei Wangfei‘s expression finally changed.
She was never inconspicuous and her son also never tried being low-key when he was outside. In the capital, the people who were aware of the marriage between Zhenbei Wangfu and Taifu fu were more than a few.

She said with a strong smile: “There must be a misunderstanding…”
Ming shi did not yield one bit: “Then, may I ask Wangfei to explain what the misunderstanding is to me?”
Suddenly, there was a delicate voice coming from outside the door: “I heard that a guest came, I…”
Meng shi raised her head and looked over. She saw an elegant and supple white-clothed silhouette heading their way.
She saw that her face was like a hibiscus, her eyebrows like willow leaves, her mouth appeared cinnabar red. She was indeed a rare beauty.
Meng shi sized up her clothes, already having an answer in her heart.
“Might I assume this is the renowned Zhang xiao jie?” Meng shi began speaking.
Zhang Mingshu was somewhat curious: “May Xiao nǚ1, Zhang Mingshu, know who furen is?”
Meng shi‘s smile had a profound meaning: “I am Liang Taifu fu‘s mistress2. I don’t know if Zhang xiao jie is aware of who I am?”
Zhang Mingshu’s complexion became pale.
Of course she knows where Liang Taifu fu is, and is even more aware of who this furen is!
The mother of Biao ge‘s future wife!
Seeing the appearance of her on the verge of collapse and also the distress that was suppressed in Zhenbei Wangfei‘s eyes, Meng shi already knew the result in her heart. Not wanting to see their faces anymore, she got up and left with a sneer.
