TOFUH – Chapter 141.2 – Emptying the Liao Family

 . . .


The people of Fucheng were talking, but unlike before, they didn’t overwhelmingly blame Wen Yingniang anymore.

Wen Yingniang’s reputation was poor enough, there was no point in repeating it.

On the contrary, the Liao family . . . tsk, tsk, it turned out that all the money they spent before came from their daughter-in-law’s dowry.

Wen Yingniang didn’t want to stay in the Liao family any longer, so when she calculated the dowry, she was straightforward and brutal: she moved away all the valuable things except the calligraphy and painting accumulated by the Liao family for generations.

“This is the decoration from my parents’ room, how has it become part of your dowry too?” Liao Qinghe’s expression became extremely ugly when he saw the people Wen Yingniang had called to move things from his parents’ house.

“I helped your family to pay off their debt. This is to settle that debt.” Wen Yingniang smilingly took out an IOU.

“That’s the antique I bought!” Seeing the vase in his study being removed, Liao Qinghe’s expression turned even more ugly.

“You bought it with my silver!” Wen Yingniang said.

When Wen Yingniang wanted to take someone into Liao Qinghe’s residence, Liao Qinghe finally couldn’t stand it any longer and yelled, “Wen Yingniang, don’t go too far.”

“What! Your Liao family still wants to withhold my dowry? Do you want me to call a few more people to judge and help me spread your words?” With that, Wen Yingniang directly let people push open the door. After she had called all the shopkeepers and staff from her shops, she no longer cared about the maids and servants of the Liao family.

Wen Yingniang and Liao Qinghe slept in separate rooms. Liao Qinghe never let her come into his room often, yet Lu Luan was lying in Liao Qinghe’s bed drinking . . . bird’s nest?

Wen Yingniang snatched the bowl of bird’s nest and directly let it fall to the ground.

“Ah!” Lu Luan cried out in shock.

“Wen Ying Ninag!” Liao Qinghe was also dumbfounded.

“This bird nest is also mine,” Wen Yingniang said. This bird’s nest was sent to her by her mother to nourish her body, so it naturally belonged to her.

After going around the house, Wen Yingniang directly asked people to move all the valuable things away.

Lu Luan while lying on the bed originally wanted Liao Qinghe to stand up for her but became dumbfounded after seeing such a scene. What the hell is going on here?

Lu Luan was not the only one dumbfounded; Father and Mother Liao were also the same.

How did the Liao family’s things all become Wen Yingniang’s? Unexpectedly, Wen Yingniang said all those things were hers by right and even came up with evidence to prove that they should be hers.

Wen Yingniang was very straightforward as she moved all the valuable things away and emptied the treasury. She threw down some IOUs and said, “The money I spent to repair your family mansion and the money I spent for you all these years, I won’t ask you for it. From now on, we will have nothing more to do with each other!”

Father and Mother Liao were full of grievances, but there was nothing they could do about it.

“Wicked woman! Wicked woman!” Father Liao could only stare at Wen Yingniang fiercely; he didn’t believe that this woman could still find a better man than his son!

Her current behavior was definitely to force them to take back the letter of divorce, but they would not grant her this wish! He would make this woman beg them!

Wen Yingniang didn’t know that the Liao family was still thinking like that at that point.

She sent all the assets of the Liao family to a house in Wexing Province and found her own staff and people from the Jinzhen Escort Agency to watch over it. As for herself . . .

Wen Yingniang looked at Zhao Jinge, who had been protecting her faithfully all this time but was a bit distracted at the moment. “Your house is very big, so you should have a vacant courtyard, right? Can you let me borrow it for one night?”

Her mansion was not properly cleaned up yet, so after moving her things there, it would be very messy. There were also not enough servants, so she couldn’t live there for the time being. She might as well go to Zhao Jinge’s place and borrow a room for a while.

The Zhao family had a vacant courtyard, which was completely empty and cleaned up before they moved in, ready to live in . . . 

Zhao Jinge nodded in agreement and said, “Then shall we go back?”

“Are you in a hurry?” Wen Yingniang asked.

Zhao Jinge nodded.

“What are you in a hurry to go home for?” Wen Yingniang asked again. After the sudden separation and divorce she was in a bad mood, but not long after her mood calmed down and her temper also became better.

Zhao Jinge was in hurry to go back because he missed his child and Jiang Zhen, but if he said it to Wen Yingniang, he would simply be poking her scars . . . so he just paused for a moment before saying, “I’m hungry.”

Wen Yingniang was stunned but then also said, “I’m hungry too.”

“My mother should have someone cook something delicious. Let’s go back,” Zhao Jinge said.

From what Zhao Jinge said, was he letting her eat with them?

Wen Yingniang suddenly looked forward to it a little.

Although the Zhao family and the Liao family were not close to each other, they were not far away.

In fact, the big families of Wexing Province, except for those living outside the city, didn’t live far from each other.

After taking Wen Yingniang and Wen Yingniang’s subordinates to the Zhao family house and walking inside, Zhao Jinge saw Jiang Zhen and Zhao Mingzhu.

In a few days, Zhao Mingzhu would be one year old and could stand on her own, but she still refused to walk. At the moment, Jiang Zhen made Zhao Mingzhu stand and crouched two or three steps away from her, trying to coax her to walk. “Mingzhu, come to father!”

“Come here quickly. Daddy has something good here.”

“Mingzhu . . .”

Zhao Mingzhu was not moved and just pursed her lips and looked at him seriously, not moving at all. Hearing the footsteps of Zhao Jinge and seeing him come in, she  hurriedly stretched out her hand to him, her eyes blinking as if she was about to cry.

Obviously, she was wronged by being forced to walk.

Zhao Jinge was a little distressed at the moment, but he didn’t dare to hug her rashly and just looked at Jiang Zhen and said, “Can I hold her?” 

Jiang Zhen said before that if he wanted to discipline his children, others should not interfere.

“I’ll do it.” Jiang Zhen picked up Zhao Mingzhu quickly and said to Zhao Jing, “Go and eat.”

He spoke to Zhao Jinge first then he looked at Wen Yingniang: “Liao . . . Madam Liao, do you want to eat together?” Since she already came in, it was necessary to greet her.

“Alright.” Wen Yingniang replied as she looked with complicated expression at the child in Jiang Zhen’s arms that stretched out her hands to Zhao Jinge, wanting to be held by him.

She felt that she had been deceived. She used to think that Zhao Jinge was just like her, had to support his family but had no children . . . but the truth was Zhao Jinge obviously had a child!

If she had a child . . . Wen Yingniang sighed, not even daring to think about it.

Zhao Liu and Zhao Fugui had already heard about Wen Yingniang’s matter.

They lived in Hexi Village before, where marrying a wife was difficult. Basically, no one would marry more than one person. After hearing about Wen Yingniang’s experience, they naturally felt very sympathetic toward her and entertained her warmly.

The food of the Zhao family was very ordinary, and Wen Yingniang had never come in contact with people like Zhao Liu and Zhao Fugui before, but she unexpectedly adapted very well.

When she got divorced, even her close subordinates looked at her with strange eyes. Many people have advised her not to get close, but this family’s attitude toward her was very normal.

Wen Yingniang ate something and went to rest for a while. Jiang Zhen was finally able to bring Zhao Jinge into the house.

“You followed her to the Liao family. What happened?” Jiang Zhen asked, while putting Zhao Mingzhu on the edge of the bed and letting her walk slowly while holding her.

Zhao Jinge quickly told him everything he encountered and then added. “Miss Wen is a very strong person.”

“She is quite powerful.” Jiang Zhen nodded. If it was the modern times, it was estimated that she would mix very well with the strong women, but unfortunately, she was born in ancient times . . . 

“However, how can you praise others so much? You also brought someone home without saying a word . . .”

Jiang Zhen’s expression didn’t look good when he spoke, but Zhao Jinge was no longer afraid. “And then?” He always felt that Jiang Zhen was going to make some strange request again . . .

“Wait, go to the table,” Jiang Zhen said.

“!!!” Zhao Jinge was dumbfounded. “On the table?”

“That table is quite beautiful, but it will look even more beautiful with you lying on it,” Jiang Zhen said. Zhao Mingzhu’s crib was placed next to their big bed, which originally was not a problem, however . . .

The night before last, he and Zhao Jinge made out in bed, intending to have a good time. They were surprised to see that Zhao Mingzhu had awakened at some point. She was holding the edge of the crib while standing and staring at them. Seeing him look over she showed him a big smile.

Even though children didn’t understand many things and they were covered with a quilt that day, Jiang Zhen still felt very uncomfortable.

So It would be better to change the venue. For example, the room outside their bedroom was quite good. There was a table, a few chairs, and a booth with a couch bed so personal servants could sleep there. . .

They could always go to sleep in another place after they finish.

“What if the table collapses?” Zhao Jinge said a little helplessly. That table was quite small, and he was quite heavy . . .

“I’ll hold you to keep you from falling.”

“. . .”

Zhao Jinge finally agreed, and the table didn’t break. This feeling . . . was quite good. He felt quite good. 

Wen Yingniang also unexpectedly felt very relaxed and even quickly fell asleep.

The Liao family however, was doomed to be unable to sleep that night.

After Wen Yingniang left, they found out that they were quite poor.

Liao Qinghe and his parents became extremely anxious, and some people were even more anxious than them.

Lu Luan followed Liao Qinghe because she wanted to live a good life, but as a result . . . 

The Liao family had been emptied?

The servants of the Liao family felt the same as Lu Luan. Some of them couldn’t even stand the situation. The money of the Liao family actually belonged to Wen Yingniang? And now Wen Yingniang is gone?

If they knew this, they would not have protected Lu Luan before!

Now . . . the Liao family shouldn’t need so many subordinates, right? What are they going to do in the future?
