Chapter 543: His Majesty Didn’t Bully Me

“Grandmother…” She said reluctantly, “I’m not grown up yet.”

“Yes, yes, my Weiwei is a little girl who never grows up.” The Dowager Duchess laughed heartily.

Aunt Lan could not help laughing too as she came to Lu Liangwei’s rescue. “Madam, it’s rare to have Miss Weiwei back. You should let her sit down.”

The Dowager Duchess finally remembered and tapped her own head. “Blast my memory, how could I stand here and talk all this while? Sit down, my girl. Aunt Lan, go bring one serving of the snacks from the kitchen so Weiwei can grab a bite first.”

“Right away.” Aunt Lan went off happily.

Lu Liangwei’s heart was warm as she sat down beside the Dowager Duchess.

Looking at the familiar place and the old woman’s kind smile, she felt unusually warm inside. There was really no place like home.

Although the Emperor treated her well, she still thought that it was better to be with family.

If possible, she did not want to return to the palace.

The thought made her a little downcast.

When the Dowager Duchess saw this, the smile on her face faded, and she held her hand and asked, “What’s the matter? Did the Emperor bully you?”

Lu Liangwei shook her head. “His Majesty didn’t bully me, he treats me very well. It’s just that I can’t bear to part with you all. I feel a little sad just thinking about going back in the afternoon.” As she spoke, her eyes reddened.

She was not a sentimental person, but after transmigrating here and replacing the original host, she received so much affection in this home that she could not bring herself to give it up.

She was saddened to leave home so suddenly.

She was still fine these two days in the palace, but now that she had returned to her natal home, she could not help feeling sorrowful.

She wished that she could just stay at home and not go anywhere.

The Dowager Duchess’s heart ached when she saw this, and she took her into her arms and caressed her. “I know how you feel. When I was young, I was just like you. No matter how wonderful your husband’s home is, how could it compare with the natal home that raised you? I even cried when I got married, and the day I visited my natal home, I lingered and refused to leave. Your grandfather was so anxious.”

Hearing this, Lu Liangwei burst out laughing.

It was hard to imagine that her strong and bold grandmother had cried when she was young.

She could not help chuckling as she visualized that scene.

Grandfather must have panicked at that time, right?!

“What happened after that?” Lu Liangwei asked.

“Your grandfather loved me very much, but he was a hot-headed young man. When he saw me crying, he panicked and didn’t know what to do. In the end, I gave in and went back with him because I saw him all sweaty and distressed. Think about it, a tough man like your grandfather was so worried that he almost knelt and kowtowed to me. How could I not go back with him?”

The corners of Lu Liangwei’s mouth lifted, and the disappointment in her heart dissipated. Emotion filled her heart as she held her grandmother’s wrinkled hand.

Perhaps, every young woman felt the same way as her when they got married.

The Dowager Duchess stroked her hair. “Are you not so sad anymore after listening to my story? This is a phase that every woman has to go through. It’s human nature. After a while, you’ll get used to living in the palace, and you won’t feel this way anymore. When that time comes, you probably won’t want to come back even if we ask you to.”

“I won’t do that,” Lu Liangwei retorted.

The Dowager Duchess did not mind either, but she said earnestly, “You’re still young. When you have children in the future and have things to do, you won’t have time to think about all this.”

Children?

Lu Liangwei placed a hand on her lower abdomen subconsciously.

Two nights ago, Long Yang did finish inside, and she did not take any medicine afterward.
