Chapter 505: Long Yang Was Delighted

“Who was it?” asked Lu Liangwei curiously.

She already had a few suspects in mind, but she was not sure which one of them was the culprit.

“The Prudence Consort, Ji Linghui,” said Madam Lin slowly.

Lu Liangwei was a little surprised. “Her?”

“Yes.” Madam Lin nodded. “She bribed Situ Xu, the young master of the Situ Family. The Situ Family happened to have some ties with the House of Swallow Snow, so they came to the House. Supervisor Chen was in charge, but he didn’t know the relationship between you and me and accepted this contract.”

Lu Liangwei did not expect that the fragile-looking Ji Linghui would have connections with people from the martial world.

Looking at her daughter’s startled face, Madam Lin said, “Sometimes, the most unlikely person is, in fact, the likeliest one.”

Detecting the melancholy in her tone, Lu Liangwei could not help thinking to herself, ‘Has Mother experienced something like this before?’

“What’s going on between you and the Emperor?” Changing the subject, Madam Lin looked at her closely, her gaze serious. As she had yet to reveal her identity before this, it was inappropriate for her to ask such a personal question no matter how close they were. However, it was different now, and she was asking her as her mother. “Did the Emperor force you into this?”

Lu Liangwei shook her head quickly. “It’s not like that.” Although the Emperor had indeed forced her at first, she no longer rejected him after that. Not wanting her mother to misunderstand the Emperor, she said earnestly, “His Majesty is really nice.”

Madam Lin was a little jealous to hear her daughter speak of the Emperor so trustingly. After thinking for a while, she asked probingly, “Which… stage are you at?”

Lu Liangwei was stunned for a moment, and when she realized what she was referring to, she blushed furiously. “Mother, don’t overthink it. Nothing’s happened between His Majesty and me, and he’s also very respectful.”

However, Madam Lin was still not at ease and became worried instead. “You haven’t married him yet, and you’re already defending him in every possible way. You’ll definitely suffer in the future.”

Lu Liangwei was a little embarrassed. “I’m not defending him. I’m just telling the truth.”

Looking at her daughter’s face, Madam Lin took her hand and said earnestly, “My girl, you should never give your heart to a man easily. Otherwise, if things change in the future, you’d suffer…” I don’t want you to follow in my footsteps.

She did not utter the last part.

Lu Liangwei nodded. “I know.” She understood that her mother wanted the best for her. Moreover, her mother had a point.

If men got what they wanted too easily, they would not cherish it as much.

Madam Lin’s heart ached as she looked at her daughter’s youthful face.

Her daughter was getting married the next day. At such a young age, she had to…

Thinking of what would happen in the bridal chamber on her wedding night, Madam Lin felt even more upset.

Her flower-like daughter was going to marry an old man. The more she thought about it, the more uncomfortable she felt.

Her fiance was the most honorable man in the kingdom, and he was also handsome and looked younger than he should be, but his age was still an unchanged fact.

A sudden idea came to her.

Should she pull some tricks and sabotage that scumbag Emperor’s wedding night?

Their heartfelt conversation in the carriage closed the distance between them even more. The last trace of unfamiliarity had also disappeared, and all that was left was intimacy.

Long Yang was riding alongside the carriage and caught snippets of the conversation inside, but he did not hear what Madam Lin said. It seemed that she had deliberately lowered her voice to prevent other people from eavesdropping.

However, that was not important. What mattered was that Weiwei had defended him in front of her mother.

A small smile appeared on his lips.

Compared to Long Yang’s delighted mood, the Lu Family men were currently much more miserable.
