Chapter 16: They Are So Prosperous That Even the G.o.ds Hate Them

Half an hour later.

Liu s.h.i.+mei was wearing a yellow-colored patched robe. There was only a silver ta.s.seled hairpin in her hair. She brought the only servant girl left with her, Mo’er, and walked to the Liang Residence, which was three streets away from the Grand Chancellor’s Residence.

The Liang family’s gate was clearly open, but she stood hesitantly in front of the gate. The gatekeeper looked at her and asked, “This young lady… You’re the Grand Chancellor’s Eldest Young Miss Liu, right?”

Liu s.h.i.+mei was slightly stunned and stopped in her tracks.

“Yes!” Mo’er replied.

“Don’t leave, Eldest Young Miss Liu!” the gatekeeper said. He entered the manor as if his b.u.t.t was on fire.

Not long after, a group of people walked out of the Liang Residence!

The leader was a brawny old man with white hair and a white beard, and behind him was a row of men and women in all kinds of clothes!

It was so aggressive that it felt like they were out for a gang fight!

Especially those men, all of them looked strong and majestic. They were indeed generals!

Mo’er was shocked. “Miss, it seems that almost all the men in the Liang family have come out… Why do I feel like they’ve been waiting for you in the manor?”

Liu s.h.i.+mei also felt the same way.

She took a step forward and was about to bow down when she was pulled into the house by a strong arm. “Oh, s.h.i.+mei, you’ve finally come to Grandpa’s house!”

Liu s.h.i.+mei was still in a daze even after she entered the hall and sat down.

However, she liked the way he addressed her.

Compared to ‘maternal grandfather’, ‘grandpa’ was more down-to-earth.

“s.h.i.+mei, you haven’t been to Grandpa’s house for many years, so you don’t recognize everyone, right?”

The man with white hair and beard was the previous mighty general, Liang Wei, the father of Liu s.h.i.+mei’s mother, Liu Ruyi. His finger swept the room, pointing at the middle-aged people to the young men and women sitting in the hall. He said, “Your First Uncle, First Aunt, Second Uncle, Second Aunt, Third Uncle, Third Aunt… Sixth Uncle, Sixth Aunt, Seventh Uncle!”

Liu s.h.i.+mei was shocked.

Oh my G.o.d!

She had seven uncles? It was a group of uncles! She was dazzled by them and could not remember any of them!

The Fourth Uncle and Fifth Uncle were currently guarding the border, so they were not in the manor. Besides them, the rest of the Liang family was present. That Seventh Uncle was only 20 years old. He was not married yet, so there was no ‘Seventh Aunt’!

Liang Wei then pointed at the group of young men and even children standing behind the seven elders. “This is Big Brother, Second Brother, Third Brother… Ninth Brother, Tenth Brother… 16th Brother!”

Liu s.h.i.+mei was dumbfounded again.

This Liang family must have flourished to the extent that even the G.o.ds would be angry at them!

More importantly, this great general Liang’s children were all men. Did he not even have a single daughter?

She was busy greeting everyone when she saw Liang Wei laughing. “Now that s.h.i.+mei is back, our Liang family finally has a daughter!”

Those cousins immediately surrounded Liu s.h.i.+mei.

Compared to the Liu family, which was a family of scholars, this family of generals was indeed more down-to-earth. This group of people did not care about the trifles, and the entire hall was filled with heroic spirit.

From Liang Wei’s introduction, she could tell that this group of brothers did not have the word ‘cousin’ in their address. Did that mean that they wanted to be her real brothers?

Liang Wei was clearly very happy as he continued, “Back then, when your mother insisted on marrying Liu Jun, that s.h.i.+fty-eyed and rotten civil official, I was very against it! However, the Imperial edict had already come down, so we had no choice but to agree! Liu Jun is really a jerk. He didn’t let you go back to Grandpa’s house all these years. When your brothers see you outside, they don’t even dare to greet you for fear that you’ll dislike them!”

Liu s.h.i.+mei could understand why he said he was afraid she would dislike it.

The current Shu Dynasty placed more emphasis on literature than martial arts, and Liu Fuyun was the head of civil officials, looking down on the families of military generals. Furthermore, Liu s.h.i.+mei was famous for her talents and was taught by Liu Fuyun. They were afraid that she would not like them!
