Chapter 314: Could not help but laugh

Translator:Dragon Boat TranslationEditor:Dragon Boat Translation

When the two of them were done packing, Xiao Yuanshi personally sent them back to the Xiao residence.

Very quickly, many people in the capital heard about this news.

Xiao Yuanshi brought his younger son and daughter back to the general’s residence as guests because of guilt.

However, because his children wanted to do good deeds, he did not agree.

Therefore, in a fit of anger, he directly sent them back to the Xiao residence.

Because of this, Xiao Yuanshi was scolded by everyone again.

They even ridiculed him for wanting to take the credits and even erect a memorial tomb.

When Xiao Yuanshi heard about this matter, his eyes were red with anger.

He could not help but smash the items in his study room for the first time.

“Retribution, these are my retributions.”

If Xiao Hanzheng or Shi Qingluo weren’t the ones who had released this news, he would be willing to write the word ‘Xiao’ upside down.

He had spent so much money and was bullied and cheated every day.

In the end, he still ended up badly. It was too infuriating.

After smashing things in his study room, his personal attendant walked in.

“General, Madam is crying at the door and insists on seeing you.”

Xiao Yuanshi could not help but have a headache. “No!”

The moment he said that, Ge Chunru had already rushed into the study room by herself.

Her face was covered in tears. “General, how could you do this to me?”

Xiao Yuanshi rubbed the space between his brows. “What’s wrong with you? I’m frustrated now.”

Ge Chunru couldn’t care less about this at this moment.

She immediately ran over and threw herself into Xiao Yuanshi’s arms. “General, you have to stand up for Chunyi!”

When Xiao Yuanshi heard this, he originally wanted to push her away, but he changed his action to hug her.

His eyes flashed. “What’s wrong with your brother now?”

Ge Chunru cried until she was out of breath. “The old Xiao’s people not only stole Chunyi’s silver, Eldest Grandson Xiao even sent him to the mine.

“He almost froze to death. He couldn’t eat or wear well and had to work hard every day.”

She received a letter from her brother’s friend.

After reading it, she felt like it was a bolt from the blue.

She didn’t expect old Xiao’s people to be so vicious.

Not only did they discover and steal the silver, but they also treated her brother in such a way.

After her younger brother was born, their family’s conditions had improved a lot, so they had not suffered much since they were young.

After she followed Xiao Yuanshi, her younger brother had the same living standards as the young masters of other families.

How could he endure the life of mining?

The people of the Xiao family were not here.

Otherwise, she would have strangled them to death personally.

Xiao Yuanshi pretended to be surprised. “What? Are you serious? How dare Eldest Grandson Xiao do this?”

Ge Chunru said in tears, “I didn’t expect him to be so bold.

“General, this is a letter Chunyi asked someone to write for him. It must be true. Otherwise, he wouldn’t know that my brother had 30,000 taels of silver and was robbed by the Xiao family.

“You must stand up for Chunyi. Quickly send someone to the northern border to bring him out of the mine.”

Xiao Yuanshi was annoyed, but he said, “Okay, I’ll send someone to the northern border to check if it’s true.”

However, he did not say that he was going to bring him out.

Ge Chunru did not hear the hidden meaning in his words. “I know that you are the best.”

She could not help but take the initiative to suggest, “General, didn’t the emperor ask you to return to the northern border? Why don’t we set off now?”

She could not be at ease if she did not see her brother’s safety with her own eyes.

If he was really sent to mine, then she had to quickly bring him to her side to recuperate.

These words successfully made the guilt in Xiao Yuanshi’s heart disappear completely, and his face darkened even more.

As expected, his mother was right.

In this woman’s eyes, her younger brother was more important than her husband.

He said unhappily, “Nonsense. The emperor asked me to reflect on myself for three months before going to the northern border. If I go now, wouldn’t that be disobeying the decree?”

Ge Chunru’s heart was in a mess now. “Then, then why don’t you go and request from the emperor if you can return to the northern border earlier?”

Xiao Yuanshi was furious. He could not help but push Ge Chunru away from his arms. “You are simply bewitched.

“The emperor was already punishing me, and it was because of my relationship with you.

“Now you want me to go against the imperial edict and apply to go back to the northern border early because of your brother.

“Do you want me to lose my position as a general?”

Now that he had not even been appointed to a position at the northern border, he would be foolish enough to take the initiative to apply to go early.

If he was not allowed to lead the army, or if he was given a low official position, who would he cry to?

This woman was too outrageous.

Ge Chunru felt wronged. “How could I possibly think that way?

“I’m just worried about my younger brother.”

She cried angrily. “You said before that you would support me no matter what. It has only been a short while, and you’ve already changed.”

Her younger brother had been harmed by his family. What was wrong with them going early?

She did not believe that the emperor would do anything.

After all, he still had to rely on her husband to guard the border.

Xiao Yuanshi’s heart turned cold when he heard her grumbling tone.

He had finally realized that it would be fine if the matters did not involve her sister and brother.

However, if something happened to those two, Ge Chunru would make a scene.

She did not understand his painstaking efforts at all and did not spare a thought for him.

He thought for a moment and said, “Then I’ll get someone to send you to the northern border first. I’ll look for you after my orders are given.”

Ge Chunru looked at him in disbelief. “If I go first, how would the old Xiao family listen to me?”

How could Xiao Yuanshi treat her like this?

Her brother was about to be tortured to death.

Why was he so unconcerned? This was too much.

Xiao Yuanshi was furious when he saw her like this. “I said I can’t go against the order. What can I do?”

He asked with a sullen face, “You’re worried if I send someone to take a look. I asked you to go first, but you refused. What exactly do you want?”

Ge Chunru saw his attitude towards this.

If this happened in the past, he would have coaxed her and let her be.

“Xiao Yuanshi, how dare you scold me? How can you do this?”

She couldn’t help but push Xiao Yuanshi a few times. “You are too much and scolded me. What about you saying that you would spoil me and love me? You are too much.”

Xiao Yuanshi was already frustrated, and he was annoyed by Ge Chunru’s unreasonable behavior.

“Can someone send madam back to her courtyard.”

After all, she was the woman he liked.

He did not lay a hand on her, but he was so annoyed that he did not want to see her again.

At this moment, Ge Chunru was so angry that she had lost her rationality.

She refused to let go. “I’m not, I’m not going back to my courtyard. Follow me to the northern border.”

This made Xiao Yuanshi even angrier.

He pushed her away completely and walked away quickly.

Ge Chunru chased after him, but Xiao Yuanshi’s men forced her back to the courtyard.

She cried again, making Tao Liu, who had received the news, laugh uncontrollably.

If Ge Chunru continued to make such a fuss, Xiao Yuanshi would not be able to keep up with her no matter how much he loved her.

He heard that Xiao Hanzheng still had plans, so he could not let Ge Chunru go to the northern border first.

Thus, when Xiao Yuanshi came to see her at night, Tao Liu swayed him through pillow talk.

On the surface, she was worried about Ge Chunru’s safety when she went to the northern border alone, but in reality, she was just trying to sway him through pillow talk.

She even deliberately emphasized that if Ge Chunru went alone first, what would happen if she cause a ruckus that tarnished the reputation of the general’s residence?

Xiao Yuanshi had already felt a little guilty because of Ge Chunyi’s matter.

He was also afraid that Ge Chunru would go and accidentally discover that he had done something behind her back.

Thus, he had his people to completely ground Ge Chunru.

Other than her usual social activities outside, she was not allowed to leave the courtyard.

This made Ge Chunru even angrier.

She would often make a scene in the courtyard, so that even Xiao Yuanshi did not dare to go to her courtyard.

Because of this and Xiao Yuanshi’s deliberate concealment, Ge Chunru still did not know that Tao Liu was pregnant.

The two people, who were once said to be true lovers, both felt resentment toward each other and gradually drifted apart.
