Suddenly, the quiet atmosphere of the spirit herb store startled them. As they turned to look at the direction where the stares of the people had gathered, they saw a huge mountain-like figure.
Even though Feng Ruqing had lost a lot of weight and slimmed down, she was still akin to the size of a large mountain compared to Tan Shuangshuang.
The middle-aged woman sensed Tan Shuangshuang’s uneasiness, so she patted her hand and comforted her with a smile.
Immediately, her cold eyes looked upon Feng Ruqing, as she bowed politely and said, “Greetings, Your Royal Highness.”
Feng Ruqing frowned a little. She didn’t anticipate her meeting with Liu Yuchen’s mother and Tan Shuangshuang at the spirit herb store.
In the past, it was because of the princess that Lady Liu fainted due to her uncontrollable anger. Which led to Liu Chen abandoning the princess that indirectly caused the death of the princess in the chancellor’s manor.
Seeing Feng Ruqing silently standing there, Lady Liu felt a knot in her heart.
No matter how the princess acted, the Liu family had always shown her respect. The princess not only forbade Tan Shuangshuang to enter the manor, but she also did not allow Yuchen to take in concubines. Plus, she even got rid of all Yuchen’s concubines. Even though the princess did all those, Lady Liu still respected her and would not cause her any trouble.
Sadly, Yuchen did not like Feng Ruqing. Aside from Feng Ruqing’s family background, all her other traits were not as good as Tan Shuangshuang. That was why she would rather allow Tan Shuangshuang to marry into her household, than to have a member of the imperial family which was obnoxiously rude.
Tan Shuangshuang lowered her gaze as she spoke in a frail manner, inducing empathy from others.
“I know you’re angry that I snatched Yuchen from you, but I’ve already talked to Yuchen. From now onward, I shall no longer force him to love me. I just hope that your highness will just spare the chancellor’s household.”
Lady Liu quickly grabbed hold of Tan Shuangshuang’s hand. Her heart stung with pride and happiness.
“Shuangshuang, my dear child, you’re too kind hearted. It must be painful for you to do this.”
With a pale look upon her face, Tan Shuangshuang shook her head. She replied with a smile, “Aunt Liu, Shuang’er isn’t suffering. It’s only natural for a man to have three of four wives. How can Shuang’er ever force him to be with only me for the rest of his life? If Yuchen has more women, then there will be more people helping the Liu family to give birth to the new generation, keeping the bloodline going. Shuang’er will be beyond happy, so what’s there to suffer?”
“You’re just comforting me, how can you not feel the pain in your heart? No one will ever want to share their man. But you’re willing to do this for Yuchen. This proves that you’re the only one in the world who would love Yuchen with all of your heart.”
Lady Liu patted Tan Shuangshuang’s hand. She smiled a little and said, “Don’t you worry. I will definitely let Yuchen officially marry you and welcome you into our home.”
Her words were spoken intentionally in front of Feng Ruqing.
Feng Ruqing loved Yuchen deeply. In Liu’s household, other than the concubines, everyone else obeyed her orders, but Lady Liu didn’t even bat an eyelid at her.
She could treat anyone cruelly but in order to win Liu Yuchen’s heart, she did not have the guts to mistreat Lady Liu.
Feng Ruqing laughed. Her laughter was sudden, it rang aloud in the quiet spirit herb store.
Lady Liu raised her brows then faced Feng Ruqing and asked, “What’s the meaning of this, Princess?”
“Oh nothing, I totally agree with you. In this world, there’s no one else as matching as Tan Shuangshuang and Liu Yuchen. I honestly and sincerely wish them all the happiness in this world. I hope that they will never be apart from one another. At least they won’t go around hurting other people.”
Lady Liu didn’t understand her meaning at first. But after a moment, it struck her. Her eyes were filled with disbelief.
