“Who does B*tch refer to?!”
“B*tch is talking about you!” Madame Duke Changning replied without hesitation.
“Hehe.” Gu Chaoyan smiled with a mocking tone, “You know yourself pretty well, Madame Duke Changning.”
Hearing what Gu Chaoyan said, Madame Duke Changning realized that she had been tricked by her. So she raised her hand to slap Gu Chaoyan, but before the hand landed upon her, Gu Chaoyan already took hold of her wrist.
“Madame Duke Changning, please watch out.” Gu Chaoyan said coldly without letting go. Madame Duke Changning felt so much pain that her face got twisted.
Seeing the scene, Madame Gu walked up. She said with a serious expression on her face as she bellowed, “Chaoyan!”
Gu Chaoyan let go of her.
Madame Duke Changning stumbled, looking very messy.
Before she steadized herself, Gu Chaoyan snapped. “The two maids were hit because they hit my maid. Those who have no rules are definitely to be punished. But Madame and Prince call me evil without understanding the full story, which means that you are wronging me. In this land, wronging and spreading scandal is against the law.”
“Madame, I suggest you not spread rumors in the court like a nosy old woman.” Gu Chaoyan reminded her with a mocking tone, “There are many rumors about me, and I don’t need one more. However, if you, Madame, get recognized as a nosy old woman, that wouldn’t be good for you, would it?”
Madame Duke Changning’s face sank as she stood back on her feet with her maids’ help. And she did not continue to lunge at her.
They were in the imperial court. The court was not a place for her to lose her manners.
Duke Changning’s Mansion might be in the higher rank, yet they had a different family name as the imperial family, so they were not worth mentioning here in the court at all, especially when no men in the mansion had been given any good jobs.
She could only wait to deal with this ugly girl.
Madame Gu glared at Gu Chaoyan with displeasure, thinking that she had caused too much trouble. She walked past her and came to Madame Duke Changning. “Don’t worry, Madame, we will give you a very satisfying result when we get back home.”
Hearing what Madam Gu said, Madam Duke Changning was quite glad. The expression on her face turned better.
She would very much like to see what Gu Chaoyan would receive as punishment to have offended her in this way!
Due to Madam Gu’s apologetic tone, Madame Duke Changning regained her arrogant manner. “I won’t worry a thing when you are taking care of this matter, Madame Gu.”
Madame Gu smiled.
The gang were just about to walk on, when the sharp-eyed Madame Duke Changning saw Lord Huai who was coming this way.
That was Lord Huai!
She gave Lu Jiming a push. Although Duke Changning’s Mansion and Lord Huai did not have a deep relationship with each other, Madame Duke Changning remembered that when Lu Jiming was cancelling the engagement, Lord Huai did attend the meeting. So it meant that Lord Huai had the intention of befriending Jiming. After all, Jiming was such an excellent man and it was quite normal that Lord Huai would like to be his friend.
Lu Jiming instantly understood what happened.
He would not have approached Lord Huai of his own accord before, but since Lord Huai showed up at the cancellation of his engagement and now Lord Huai was approaching them instead of avoiding them, Lu Jiming went up confidently towards him, assuming that he was here to greet them. “Unexpectedly, we are meeting here, Lord Huai!”
“Please, Lord Huai, come to our mansion for some tea when you have time. I haven’t thanked you for what you did for me the other day.” Lu Jiming said with a smile.
Instead of looking at him, Zhou Huajin walked past him and came to the Gu Family.
