When Cheng Yujin heard this voice, she was stunned.

She suddenly stood up and looked at the door with wide eyes. A servant girl rolled the curtain on the door, and a tall figure walked in.

His face was cold, his eyes were without the slightest ripples, and there was no particular emotion on his face. Cheng Yuanjing’s height was considered tall among men. Unlike Huo Changyuan’s sturdiness, who looked like a military man at first glance, Cheng Yuanjing’s figure was slender and straight. He looked elegant and handsome from afar, but when he walked closer, one could see his broad shoulders, slender legs, and thin waist.

His appearance was a bit too excellent to be a mere mortal. Although his tall and elegant figure was eye-catching, the most conspicuous part of Cheng Yuanjing was the indifference and majesty on his movements and gestures.

This was a temperament that was cultivated by someone who was born to stand and rule above others.

Standing inside a room full of womenfolks, Cheng Yuanjing, who was already taller than the average man, was even more eye-catching. After he came in, the people who were still aggressively eloquent until now suddenly were stifled. Those who had been sitting stood up unconsciously, while the servants standing on the side kept their eyes down on the ground and held their breath.

Cheng Yujin was too shocked upon seeing Cheng Yuanjing that she stood up quickly. Fortunately, others also reacted similarly to her. In a room of flustered women, Cheng Yujin’s movement was not so abrupt. Cheng Yujin ignored Old Madam Cheng and the others and immediately walked towards Cheng Yuanjing. When she arrived in front of Cheng Yuanjing, she hesitated again: “This little girl pays respect to Ninth Uncle. Ninth Uncle, why are you here?”

Right after speaking, Cheng Yujin saw Du Ruo behind Cheng Yuanjing. Cheng Yujin’s eyes blinked, and she figured it out in an instant.

Seeing that Cheng Yujin has figured it out, Cheng Yuanjing nodded and didn’t say much. “I happen to met your servant girl halfway. Since I also have something to say to everyone, let say it now.”

Cheng Yujin understood. Du Ruo indeed went to Qingfu Junzhu according to her instruction. However, Qingfu Junzhu refused to get involved in this muddy matter. Du Ruo had no choice but to run to Cheng Yuanjing for help.

Cheng Yujin winked at Du Ruo several times. Right now, she felt really miserable. Cheng Yujin could only tactfully apologize to Cheng Yuanjing: “Ninth Uncle, it’s just a small matter. To disturb you over this, this little girl is really ashamed.”

Cheng Yujin was indeed feeling embarrassed right now. She didn’t expect that Du Ruo would go to Cheng Yuanjing. To have this kind of thing actually known to the crown prince, Cheng Yujin didn’t know whether to blame Du Ruo or herself. In fact, she couldn’t blame Du Ruo. Cheng Yujin knew Cheng Yuanjing’s real identity. Thus, she dared not to offend or to step the boundary. Instead, she was meticulous in pleasing Cheng Yuanjing every time. But Du Ruo was ignorant. She didn’t know the truth and only knew that her Miss was very close to the Ninth Master and often ran to his courtyard. Thinking this way, it was no wonder that Du Ruo would go to Cheng Yuanjing to ask for help.

It was such a great offense, but now Cheng Yujin had to face it…she felt embarrassed, but also equally puzzled. Du Ruo didn’t know the truth, so her action was justifiable. But why did Cheng Yuanjing agree to come? He was the honorable crown prince. Sooner or later, he would leave the Cheng family. Why did he lower himself to meddle with the conflict between womenfolks?

“It’s okay.” Cheng Yuanjing didn’t seem to care. “It’s not just you, but I also have something to say. Since everyone happens to be here with the Marchioness today, let’s talk about it now.”

Helped by her servant girl, the Old Madam also stood up. Whenever she saw Cheng Yuanjing, the Old Madam would inevitably be reminded of little Xue-shi and couldn’t have a good expression. However, her words were very polite. It was completely different from facing Cheng Yujin and Ruan-shi: “Ninth boy, why are you here?”

Cheng Yuanjing replied: “Just a small matter.” After a pause, he continued nonchalantly: “I remember that right before the Marquis passed away, he made clear a lot of things. However, looking at Marchioness and the others now, I’m afraid that you still don’t quite understand.”

Old Madam Cheng and Ruan-shi’s expression suddenly stiffened.

“That day, the Marquis said that seniority has to be put in order, and the younger generations are to be treated equally regardless of gender. Although Cheng Yujin’s marriage contract was canceled, she has the right to the dowry. To move her belonging to someone else for an inexplicable reason is unacceptable. Second Madam Cheng has accepted the two thousand taels from the Marquis, which means you accepted his arrangement. But now you said that the Marquis’ arrangement is not appropriate, on what basis?”

Cheng Yuanjing’s tone was flat and calm, but it was even more imperious than a loud scolding. Ruan-shi looked embarrassed. She pursed her lower lip and said: “I did this, isn’t it for the sake of Yichun Marquis manor? Besides, only our family members are present there at that time, and no one else would know…”

“Why wouldn’t anyone know?” Cheng Yuanjing looked at Ruan-shi indifferently. “Even if no one else knows, what does second Madam plans to do?”

  1. Wow, I really didn’t expect Qingfu Junzhu to simply wash her hands of Yujin’s matter. I thought she would jump at the chance to fight with the Second branch. What a b*tch! (please, pardon my rudeness)
    Thank you for the translation <3

  2. Yeah, I agree with upstairs that I thought Junzhu would’ve fought if only to preserve her face in the family, not allowing her “daughter” and therefore herself to be taken advantage of… but I guess the plot device needs CYJing to be involved 😁

    Thanks for the chapter 👏
