Ms. Fang smiled briefly. “Well, I didn’t tell you earlier because I was worried about any unforeseen changes!”
Second Uncle and Third Uncle suddenly ran out of words.
They exchanged a look between themselves and left. They went into the field and started to watch the people doing the rakes.
They had taken advantage of the first section of the family, but it felt as if they had turned hollow inside their hearts.
They did not seem to feel that good…
Infact, they started to feel even more jealous.
They could not help but feel emotional. It was so good to be rich and have a rich daughter-in-law!
But their eldest sister-in-law had coaxed Ms. Qiao for her dowry. She must be spending Ms. Qiao’s money which she had brought to her own pockets.
But that was her daughter-in-law!
Ms. Qiao was so stupid as to have been cheated.
Maybe they could even let their own daughters-in-law and daughters trick Ms. Qiao.
When Shao Yunduan returned from the school, he brought an invitation for Qiao Xuan.
It was from the Qiao Family.
Shao Yunduan did not turn it down directly and instead, brought it home.
Qiao Wei was setting up a feast for viewing flowers, and had invited Qiao Xuan for it.
Qiao Xuan pursed her lips. She was indeed very uneasy about the invite!
“If you don’t want to go there, you can turn it down with an excuse!”
Shao Yunduan was annoyed too.
He felt so horrible to see his wife being bullied yet he could do nothing about it.
He had been a calm person all through his life. He used to study hard for his parents so they could live a better life, that was all.
But at this moment, he had developed a profound eagerness – to accumulate power.
If he could become stronger, just a little bit more powerful, he could do something about the situation.
Qiao Xuan chuckled. “Of course I will go there. She can’t kill me, can she? I know what she is like. If I don’t go over, she will make a big scene.”
Shao Yunduan had predicted that she would react like this, so he added. “I will go there with you. I will be waiting for you outside the mansion. Don’t stay for too long, just find an excuse to leave early. Maybe Young Master Xie’s jade can be of some help…”
It could definitely be of some help…
For someone like him who was going to participate in the imperial examination, he knew clearly what Xie Jingrong’s jade could do. But he, without hesitation, let his wife have it.
Qiao Xuan chuckled and suddenly found that this little person was lovely. She was so lucky to have found him!
“No, no, we should not use this jade for such small things. Don’t worry, Qiao Wei is arrogant, and incapable. I am capable of handling her!”
“If she just wants to take advantage of me verbally, I won’t react to it and laugh with her. If she dares to do something physically, I am not afraid of that, either! I am the Second Miss, which I can use to frighten people every now and then!”
This girl looked beautiful, confident and generous. Her eyes were sparkling, and she was so clever!
