Chapter 13: Recovering the Dowry as Capital

Madam Zhang’s face turned red.

What was the logic?

This logic was clear – when Madam Ruyi was pregnant, Madam Zhang hooked up with the Grand Chancellor, and they had a child before they were married. They had a child in less than eight months.

Liu Yan’er was an illegitimate child!

It was just that the Grand Chancellor had announced to the public that Liu Yan’er was a premature baby in order to maintain his dignity!

“Liu s.h.i.+mei, don’t talk nonsense!” Liu Yan’er’s face also turned ugly.

Liu s.h.i.+mei sneered and said, “When the upper beam is not right, the lower beam will be crooked. Like mother, like daughter, you’re both vicious! Liu Yan’er, I still haven’t settled the matter of you harming me, but you’re not my target today, so you should take the chance to catch your breath!”

She turned to look at the furious Madam Zhang and said, “Madam Zhang, although you’re now the rightful first wife, you can not take my mother’s dowry. Hurry up, hand them over!”

The original owner of this body loved literature and art, because the Grand Chancellor treated her as a p.a.w.n to get close to the royal family, and had never treated her badly.

She had never thought about the daily necessities, so she naturally did not care about whose pockets the dowry went to after her mother’s death!

But now, Liu s.h.i.+mei’s thoughts were different!

She came from an evil society where she could not live without money. She had no family or friends in this world, and only money could give her a sense of security!

If she did not settle the matter of the dowry, she would have no place in King Dun Yu’s residence in the future. Therefore, the most important thing now was to get her mother’s dowry back!

“Your mother didn’t have any dowry!” Madam Zhang looked away and did not meet Liu s.h.i.+mei’s eyes. She was determined not to admit that she had stolen Madam Ruyi’s dowry!

“Hehe!”

Would Liu s.h.i.+mei believe it?

That was impossible!

“Madam Zhang!” she said firmly. “My mother is from the Liang family. You know the Liang family, right? My grandfather was the former mighty general. How could he not have a dowry when he married his daughter? Do you want me to go to the Liang family and ask?”

The Liang family was a family of military generals, but Lian Po was old. In a time of peace, the general did not have much to contribute. After her grandfather stepped down as general, the Liang family’s situation was not as good as before, and it did not live up to its reputation.

However, generals all had explosive tempers. If her grandfather really knew that Zhang family actually dared to steal his deceased daughter’s dowry, he would probably immediately come to kill this woman!

They were a bunch of uncouth people. If they could solve the problem with their hands, they would definitely not bother to even talk to you! If he could kill someone with one punch, he would definitely not waste his energy on a second punch!

After Madam Ruyi died of illness, the Liu family gradually cut off all contact with the Liang family. Liu s.h.i.+mei was still young and ignorant at that time. The Grand Chancellor did not allow her to visit her maternal grandfather’s house, so she really did not go to the Liang family. Over the years, they gradually drifted apart.

“Liu s.h.i.+mei, don’t be anxious.” Madam Zhang rolled her eyes and changed her strategy. “As the Grand Chancellor’s wife, I have a first-rank official’s life at hand. How could I covet your mother’s dowry? I’ve been saving this for you. I was planning to add more makeup when you marry into the royal family. I didn’t think that…”

It was impossible for a concubine to be conferred the t.i.tle of Imperial Concubine. However, after the Liu family’s eldest son, Liu Quan, pa.s.sed away, Liu Fuyun used many favors to get such an Imperial Concubine from the Emperor for the sake of his second son, Liu Anhe’s future!

“Didn’t think of what?” Liu s.h.i.+mei sneered and glanced at Liu Yan’er, who was standing behind Madam Zhang.

Liu Yan’er must have been scared after being beaten up by her, so when she saw her, she was a little timid.

“Madam Zhang, you’re not thinking of using my mother’s dowry to add makeup to your daughter’s face when she marries into the royal family, are you?” she said with a cold smile.

Madam Zhang’s face froze.

That was precisely her plan!

If Liu Yan’er could be chosen as the Crown Princess, the dowry of the Grand Chancellor’s Residence would be quite significant. However, if she could use Liu s.h.i.+mei’s things as her dowry, wouldn’t that be more decent?

Seeing the mother and daughter like this, Liu s.h.i.+mei understood. It seemed that her mother had left her a lot of dowries!

“Madam Zhang, this belongs to my mother. In the past, I was young, ignorant, and didn’t care about these things. But now that I’m engaged, shouldn’t you hand over what belongs to my mother?”
