Chapter 19: A Pheasant Compared to a Phoenix

Liu s.h.i.+mei was slightly surprised.

Ninth Brother, who seemed to be laughing and joking, was actually being meticulous. He was probably deliberately mentioning her marriage, right?

The Imperial edict bestowing marriage was a foregone conclusion, and they could not change it. They could only try their best to make Liu s.h.i.+mei’s life in the Imperial Family better.

At the mention of this marriage, Liang Wei’s expression turned ugly. “King Dun Yu is a fool. I’m afraid I’ll have to pay more attention to him in the future. However, in this old man’s opinion, it’s still better than being the Crown Prince’s wife.”

The Liang family really dared to say anything behind closed doors!

Liang Yi’s lips curled up evilly. “I think so too! After entering the Crown Prince’s Residence, if s.h.i.+mei is bullied, we might not be able to stand up for her. But this King Dun Yu… Hehe!”

They were all worried about her, and Liu s.h.i.+mei did not want to hold back. “Grandfather, don’t worry. This matter happened so suddenly that I had no choice but to choose this path. Fortunately, King Dun Yu’s heart is pure and he’s like a child. After all, children are very obedient if they’re taught well.”

That being said, a good daughter had been schemed against and forced to marry a fool. Everyone’s faces were no longer smiling.

At this time, Madam w.a.n.g found the list of dowries. “s.h.i.+mei, ah, you take this list back and compare it with what your father shows you. If they are not willing to give it, you can ask your uncles to help you get it. We can’t let that Madam Zhang swallow our Young Miss’s things!”

Liu s.h.i.+mei took it with a smile. “Then may I trouble any of you to lend me a brush and ink? I’ll make a copy as a backup. I don’t want some people to get angry and tear up the original list.”

“s.h.i.+mei, you’re so smart!” Madam w.a.n.g’s eyes flashed with admiration.

Liu s.h.i.+mei stayed at the Liang family until after dinner. Several aunts dressed her up and gave her a box full of jewelry.

Liang Xun, the eldest brother, led his four younger brothers and rode on tall horses to escort Liu s.h.i.+mei back to the Grand Chancellor’s Residence.

Originally, Liang Yi did not have a chance, but he knew how to get close to Liu s.h.i.+mei. In a short while, he became familiar with Liu s.h.i.+mei, and this opportunity came.

He did not ride a horse, but sat on the shaft of the carriage outside, talking to her the whole way.

When the Prime Minister’s Residence learned that the Liang family had come, they found out that the Eldest Young Miss Liu, who had disappeared for the entire afternoon, had actually gone to the Liang family to get help!

The Liang family had sent a group of juniors, all of whom were military officials below the third rank. Naturally, they did not pose much of a threat to Liu Fuyun.

However, this was also the Liang family’s att.i.tude.

The Liang family’s men all looked strong and st.u.r.dy, not comparable to the Liu family’s weak scholars.

In the hall, Liu s.h.i.+mei stood at the front with a smile on her lips. “Father, Grandpa sent my brothers to deliver a list of Mother’s dowry. Please take a look!”

Needless to say, Liu Fuyun’s expression was extremely ugly, and Madam Zhang was even more furious!

Earlier, Liu s.h.i.+mei did not seem to have much confidence when she spoke. However, After going to the Liang family, she changed into a set of silk clothes, and her hair was full of gold jewelry. She looked as n.o.ble as a G.o.ddess in the clouds!

Liu Yan’er, who was beside her, could not even be compared to Liu s.h.i.+mei.

No, there was no comparison at all!

It was like a pheasant compared to a Phoenix!

Liu Yan’er was even more jealous, and she clutched her handkerchief tightly as she thought, ‘Why don’t I have such a good maternal family?!’

However, when it came to dowry, Madam Zhang felt a little relieved. “s.h.i.+mei, I’ve already said that I won’t covet your mother’s dowry. It’s such a small amount anyway. I’ll keep it for you to supplement your makeup when you marry into King Dun Yu’s residence. Now, you’ve called all your cousins over…”

“Wait,” Liu s.h.i.+mei reached out and motioned for her to stop. She then interrupted, “May I ask, Madam Zhang, all of my mother’s dowry… Do you think of it as a small amount?”

She took out a roll of dowry list that she had copied down. She unrolled the paper, which rolled from her feet all the way to Liu Fuyun and his wife before it stopped! It was as if she was rolling out a red carpet!

Everything was written on paper. It was black and white evidence!

“Now, Father, Madam Zhang, can you please tell me how much my mother’s dowry is?”
