The Crown Prince I’m Raising Has Turned Evil - Chapter 99-2
On the other side, Xia Jun Shu walked out of the Buddhist hall and spotted Yu Ran Xiang sitting in the yard sewing something. In front of her on the table was a pile of discarded embroidered pouches. As a noble lady, she was never interested in crafts or needlework. This would be her first time picking up the needle to work on a project.
Xia Jun Shu’s heart inexplicably thumped in her chest. In the past, when her daughter had been fond of the Crown Prince, she would have always been trailing behind him wherever he went. But after what happened afterward, she became afraid to get close to anyone, especially males.
Not only that, but she also sharpened her hairpin like a knife, as if she would pull it out and stab someone at any point in time.
But only in front of Xie Lin Lang, her daughter couldn’t help but let down her guard. Even someone like her, who had never touched the needle in her life, would spend multiple nights staying up late to sew a pouch for him… Was she acting like this because she was interested in him?
Xia Jun Shu was rather worried.
She thought for a bit, then sat beside her daughter and spoke with a heavy heart.
“Hm?” Yu Ran Xiang answered without turning her head as she continued working on her handkerchief.
“Do you… Do you like Xie GongZi?”
Yu Ran Xiang’s hands abruptly stopped at that question!
As she was in her own yard, she didn’t wear a veil above her head. On her sickly face, her pair of eyes appeared extra large and pitiful.
Only after a while did she laugh and say, “No, I don’t.”
Yu Xiang Ran put down the needle and thread in her hand and looked towards the sky, “How can someone tainted like me still expect to be able to marry anyone, much less someone like Xie GongZi? Mother, you haven’t seen the way he stood on top of the city walls, how fierce and powerful he was. I can’t even begin to imagine what kind of person would be up to his standards.”
Hearing her daughter’s words, Xia Jun Shu’s heart ached terribly. If it wasn’t for that incident, her daughter could have chosen anyone she wanted. Why did fate have to be so cruel to them? What had they done to deserve this?
Xie Lin Lang brought over a box and was just about to knock on the door before she overheard their conversation.
Yu Ran Xiang had feelings for her?
And the reason she couldn’t express them was that she didn’t feel worthy?
Xie Lin Lang couldn’t help but feel regretful. If she was a man, she might not even hesitate to charge in there right now and tell her, “I’ll marry you.”
Yet, she was a woman. She couldn’t take up Yu Ran Xiang’s time with a false marriage; she had to stop her feelings from growing before it’s too late…
However, she had to think of a solution that would not harm her and would create a chance for her to face her trauma at the same time. Yu Ran Xiang was a very sweet girl and she wasn’t going to let a few scums hold up the rest of her life.
Well, it had been decided! She was going to help guide the young lady so she can regain her confidence!
Thus, the manor entered a frighteningly tense atmosphere for the next few days. Every day, Xie Lin Lang dragged an unwilling Yu Ran Xiang out to shop and to go out for nature walks. As a result, the various big and small tasks in the manor naturally fell upon Qin Jue to complete.
Originally, Qin Jue felt guilty for taking such a long time to return and letting Xie Lin Lang shoulder too much burden by himself. Hence, he had been intentionally handling all of the affairs to let him rest a bit more.
However, his goal was only to let him relax for a while, not to have him stick to his cousin like gum day after day!
A ‘Ka-Chak’ sound rang in the air as the brush in Qin Jue’s hand cracked in half. The servants that passed by the study couldn’t help but shiver, afraid that something was going to go down soon.
