Chapter 21: Shrunken Dowry

“What do you think, Father?” Liu s.h.i.+mei did not want to waste time on Liu Yan’er, so he stared at Liu Fuyun.

What she wanted now was the capital for her to become rich in the future!

There was no rush to settle the score and take revenge. There was no need to focus on one thing while losing the other.

Liu Fuyun had already lost all his face after being forced by a bunch of juniors. How could he still maintain a good expression?

He lowered his head and glanced at the list of dowries laid out on the paper, then looked at Madam Zhang. “Since the Liang family has come to ask for it, our Liu family is a big family, why would we covet such things? Madam, please count the items and hand them to s.h.i.+mei! At the very least, she’s going to be a princess soon!”

The last part of his sentence was quite interesting, as if it had a hidden meaning: In any case, the person you’re getting married to is a foolish Prince. When you get married, just bring your mother’s dowry. Don’t think that the Grand Chancellor’s Residence will give you anything else!

No matter how unwilling Madam Zhang was, she had no choice but to accept it.”Yes, Grand Chancellor!”

This matter was temporarily put to an end.

However, Liu s.h.i.+mei knew that this was definitely not the end!

They would definitely come for her little by little. In the future, she would deal with things as they came.

She sent her brothers out of the Grand Chancellor’s Residence. Liang Yi asked worriedly, “Are they really that honest?”

“They aren’t!” Liu s.h.i.+mei pursed his lips and said coldly.

Liang Yi frowned and asked again, “Then what will you do?”

If the Liang family had one or two unmarried daughters, they could still have an excuse to stay the night. However, these were all older brothers, and they could not stay in the Grand Chancellor’s Residence to keep an eye on the Liang family.

They did not even have a single unmarried daughter!

Liu s.h.i.+mei smiled at her brothers who were worried about her and said, “It’s fine, I’ll just deal with things as they come

“Thank you, Brothers!” She bowed again.

“You’re already calling us ‘Brother’, so why are you still being so polite with us?” Liang Yi chuckled and could not help but reach out to touch the black hair on her shoulders.

Although it was rude, it was intimate.

Liu s.h.i.+mei laughed when she saw the ‘it feels so good to touch my sister’ look on his face.

As someone from the modern world, she preferred this kind of intimacy and did not mind it. She smiled and said, “Then I won’t be sending you off, take care, Brothers!”

Mo’er was standing behind Liu s.h.i.+mei, was she became extremely excited as she watched the few people leave on their horses. “Young Miss, I can’t believe it! Madam Ruyi’s family is so nice!”

Liu s.h.i.+mei’s lips curved up. “Yes. However, things were not over yet. Mo’er, let’s get our spirits up and have a good fight tomorrow!”

After getting the confirmation, Liu s.h.i.+mei went to Madam Zhang’s place the next day to collect her rightful things!

Madam Zhang’s face was tense as she brought Liu s.h.i.+mei to the warehouse. “There are quite a lot of things to look for, so it’s better if we spend more time checking through them. Can’t you wait for two more days?”

The fake gentleness from before was completely gone.

Liu s.h.i.+mei did not care.

It was a large sum of wealth that a person was forced to spit out and swallow. Even a n.o.blewoman would not be able to keep her face!

She took Nanny Li and Mo’er with her. The three of them spent the entire day checking the list of all the dowry that Madam Ruyi had left behind.

It was already evening when it was finally over.

“Young Miss,” Nanny Li said, her face pale. “It’s quite a large amount, but it’s still far from what Madam Ruyi left behind!”

Liu s.h.i.+mei stared at the list that the Liang family had brought out. There was basically only one tick under three or four items!

The account book was very detailed, and the whereabouts of these things were written in it.

Mo’er said angrily, “They’re using Madam Ruyi’s dowry as gifts, aren’t they too much? I can see that there are many fake accounts! These old ink marks might be a part of their planned invasion, but these few… It was clearly newly written! Looking at the ink marks, it’ll only be two days!”

Liu s.h.i.+mei stared at the list, and then at the items in front of her. She was silent for a while before saying, “Nanny Li, call a carriage over and bring everything to the Liang family!”
