From her young husbands words, Shi Qingluo had roughly pieced together the truth.
She smiled meaningfully and said, “We are indeed fated.
I have an old immortal as my master, and you have a divine doctor as your master.”
The two masters who had passed away were really useful to take the blame.
Xiao Hanzheng smiled lightly and squeezed her hand.
“So we are destined to be a pair.”
Shi Qingluo asked, “Young Master Fei is also a young master from an aristocratic family in the capital”
Judging from his words and actions, he wasnt from an ordinary family.
Xiao Hanzheng nodded.
“Thats right, he was a young master from a high ranking aristocratic family in the capital.”
Meeting Fei Yuzhe was a completely accidental bonus.
Shi Qingluo curiously asked again, “Comparing his and Mo Qinglings portfolio, who is stronger”
Xiao Hanzheng replied, “Each of them has their own strengths.
/ please keep reading on MYB0XN0VEL(d0t)C0M.
“Although Mo Qinglings father is unreliable, he has a maternal clan that he can rely on.
In addition, his own abilities arent weak.
His future is boundless.
“Fei Yuzhes family background is more prominent.
His uncles in the Feis clan all have a position and earned some achievements in the imperial court.
“He is the noble son of a scholar family.
“In addition, he isnt the eldest son of his fathers first wife.
Therefore, he wont be taking the imperial examinations to become an official.
His family will pave the way for him.”
“Although he doesnt have a future in the imperial court, he is easy going and is on good terms with many people.
“Furthermore, he has a powerful background, with very strong networking.”
In his previous life, he did not have much contact with Fei Yuzhe.
He had only heard of him.
In the capital, Fei Yuzhe was a well-known young master of a noble family who knew how to eat, drink, and have fun.
After this encounter, he found that his character was indeed not bad, and he could befriend him.
Shi Qingluo was born into a wealthy family, so she roughly knew Fei Yuzhes identity and social status.
She asked again, “Is his nephew seriously ill”
Otherwise, as an aristocratic son living in the capital where there wasnt a shortage for good doctors, he wouldnt need to be sent to a village for treatment.
Xiao Hanzheng said, “Yes, the main reason is that his illness is a little special.
It just so happens that I know how to treat this illness.”
He had encountered similar cases before, and he had tried to cure them using his own method according to his masters medical books.
Therefore, he had some experience.
Shi Qingluo nodded.
“When they come back from the capital, our new house will be almost ready.”
Since they were coming here for treatment, they should be staying too.
The craftsmen that her young husband had hired to build the house were very experienced.
In addition, there were many helpers, so their efficiency was excellent.
In ancient times, it wasnt popular to build high-rise buildings
They were all bungalows, which sped up the construction even more.
Now, the construction was already half done.
As for the courtyard, they would slowly decorate it after the new house was done.
Xiao Hanzheng nodded.
“I think so too.”
The new house that his little wife and he had planned out together wasnt small.
It was also divided into two smaller areas.
One was mainly for their own family, and the other was separated by a small garden to host guests.
Fei Yuzhe would be sending his nephew over.
It was also convenient for them to stay there.
Shi Qingluo smiled evilly.
“When the time comes, well tell Fei Yuzhe more about what that scumbag father and that woman did.”
She did not find it troublesome at all to tarnish that scumbag father and that womans reputation.
Xiao Hanzheng smiled lightly.
He didnt think of this.
However, not that his wife mentioned it, it was possible.
The Fei family had produced a great scholar who became a civil official.
Fei Yuzhes grandfather was the current minister in the Ministry of Rites, while his biological uncle was a yushi 禦史 (a supervisory official in charge of supervising officials appointed by the emperor).
If Fei Yuzhe were to spread the story of his scumbag father, it would at least affect his scumbag fathers reputation among these civil officials.
If Old Lady Xiao and others who went to the capital and tried harder, it would definitely affect that scumbag fathers career.
Shi Qingluo giggled, “I wonder if the old lady and the rest have arrived in the capital.
I really want to see a good show with my own eyes.”
They could only wait for a letter from Eldest Grandson Xiao in order to watch the show.
Xiao Hanzheng replied, “Based on the dates, they should be arriving in the next few days.”
They had originally planned to rob their carriage midway, but he and his wife were afraid that the troublemakers would not do their job well.
It would be troublesome if they starve to death or met with an accident midway.
So they rearranged the route and let them encounter the bandits when the carriage was about to reach the capital.
This way, even if they beg for food, they could still make it to the capital.
As he had to sort out the medical books and meet Fei Yuzhe, he was away for more than 20 days.
If those troublemakers walked fast enough, they should arrive soon.
Shi Qingluo nodded.
“Thats fine, as long as they dont die, its good.”
She saw that Xiao Hanzheng was a little tired from all the commuting.
“Go and rest.
Ill call you after dinner.”
Mother Xiao had gone to the fields with her two children and hadnt returned yet.
Xiao Hanzheng was feeling tired since he had not slept well recently.
On the other hand, in the capital.
Old Lady Xiao and the others were in tattered clothes.
Their hair was in a mess as they appeared at the capital gates of the capital in an apologetic state.
When they saw the capital gates, tears welled up in their eyes.
They had finally arrived.
Otherwise, they would really go crazy.
They had thought that it would be safer if they did not take the water route, but they had unexpectedly encountered bandits.
Not only did they take away all the money they had brought with them, they also took away all their luggage, leaving them with just a set of clothes that they were wearing on their body.
Thus, they could only beg along their way to the capital.
For nearly 10 days, who knew how much suffering they had endured.
On top of being unable to fill their stomachs daily, but they also slept outdoors.
In the beginning, they scolded Shi Qingluo for encouraging them to come to the capital to seek refuge.
Gradually, they began to scold Second Son Xiao for being unfilial, forcing them to sneak around in order to seek refuge in the capital.
As they suffered more and more, their resentment towards Second Son Xiao grew with each passing day.
In the past few days, they had suffered even more.
They were so hungry that they felt dizzy but still had to walk fast.
They had never suffered like this before.
This was especially so for Old Lady Xiao and Old Master Xiao, who scolded their second son in their hearts every day for being unfilial.
If he was right in front of them, Old Lady Xiao wouldnt be able to hold her temper to hit him.
Her eyes reddened as she was supported by her two daughters-in-law while they walked towards the capital gate.
At the capital gate, they were stopped by the guards.
A guard shouted, “What are you doing Wheres your road guide”
Under Old Master Xiaos instructions, Eldest Son Xiao hurriedly took out the road guide from his bosom and handed it over.
Fortunately, he kept the road guide close to him at that time.
Otherwise, they wouldnt even be able toenter the capital.
The guard took the road guide and looked at it.
Then he asked, “What are you doing in the capital”
He continued with disdain, “The capital is an important place.
Its not a place where you beggars come to ask for food.
I advise you to quickly return to where you came from.”
This is not a place for you to stay.
Faster get lost.” Another person waved his hand impatiently.
The members of the Xiao family were stunned.
They werent beggars, and definitely not here to ask for food.
They couldnt stand this insult.
Thinking back to what Shi Qingluo had said, if anyone stopped them from entering the capital or going to the generals residence, they would pull out Second Son Xiaos name.
They would even have to show their prestigious front in an imposing manner as the family members of a general.
Thus, Eldest Son Xiao took a deep breath and pretended to be arrogant as his legs trembled.
“Are you blind Do you know who we are”
Shi Qingluo also taught him these phrases.
The guards muttered to themselves, this was the first time they had seen beggars who were so arrogant.
They were also unhappy.
“Who are you If you cant tell us, well put you all in jail.”
How dare you call them blind These beggars had too much guts.
