Chapter: 145.2 out of 171
Wei Chang Yin hadn’t been able to walk since he was eight years old after a horse had stepped on his leg and injured his bones and muscles. It had already been over ten years since that accident. Not only did his wounds have to heal, he also had to learn how to walk again. Fortunately, the servants had been massaging Wei Chang Yin’s leg every day and the muscular dystrophy hadn’t been significant. So, it wasn’t too difficult for him to practice walking.
Wei Luo saw Liang Yu Rong walk to Wei Chang Yin’s side and say a few words to him. But, he shook his head in refusal.
Wei Chang Yin said, “You don’t need to help me. You just have to stand in front of me. I’ll walk towards you.”
Liang Yu Rong couldn’t let go her worries and asked, “What if you fall down?”
Wei Chang Yin smiled and stretched his hand out to stroke her head, “You’ll be standing in front of me.”
Liang Yu Rong bit her bottom lip. That was true. If he started to fall, she would definitely rush forward to help him. As a result, she reluctantly agreed to his idea.
Liang Yu Rong stood ten steps away from Wei Chang Yin. As Wei Chang Yin went one step forward, she would take one step back. She slowly guided him forward. After they had walked for about fifteen minutes, Liang Yu Rong was worried that Wei Chang Yin would be tired. So, she stopped underneath a plum tree. She wanted to let him rest for a bit. “Big brother Chang Yin, let’s rest for a bit after you reach here. I feel a bit tired.”
He knew that she had said she was the one feeling tried instead of saying it was him because she was worried about hurting his self-esteem. Wei Chang Yin lowered his head and chuckled. He actually wasn’t a sensitive person, but he felt very comforted by Liang Yu Rong’s attentiveness. He said, “Okay.”
Wei Chang Yin slowly walked the remaining the steps. His leg wasn’t fully recovered and his calf would tremble with each step. He had only walked for a brief period of time, but his forehead was covered in sweat. However, there wasn’t the slightest sign of pain on his face. He still had usual carefree and light-hearted expression. If Liang Yu Rong didn’t clearly know about his condition, she would have thought he was feeling relaxed.
Just as he was about to reach her side, he suddenly stopped walking, flung the cane to the ground, and opened his arms towards Liang Yu Rong. He said with a faint smile, “I can’t walk anymore. Yu Rong, come and help me.”
Without saying a word, Liang Yu Rong rushed forward. She wrapped her arm around his waist and said, “Didn’t you say you could walk by yourself? You wouldn’t agree to letting me help you.”
Wei Chang Yin smiled and didn’t say a word. Actually, there were only two steps left. He could have finished walking forward. It was only that he suddenly wanted to hug her.
Liang Yu Rong absolutely didn’t know his true thoughts. She ordered a servant to push the wheelchair over and helped him sit down in the wheelchair. She asked, “Big brother Chang Yin, are you tired? I’ll push you back to our room to rest.”
Wei Chang Yin said, “I’ll just rest underneath the tree. I still want to walk a little bit more later.” He looked towards the room, “Is Ah Luo inside? Go inside and keep her company.”
Liang Yu Rong finally remembered that Ah Luo was still in the room. She hastily went back to the room and said, “Ah Luo, sorry to keep you waiting…”
A servant girl wearing a pink jacket and skirt stepped forward and said, “First Young Madam, Princess Consort Jing has already left.”
Wei Luo was a person with a high level of discernment. Liang Yu Rong and Wei Chang Yin were in their honeymoon period where they were stuck together like glue. It wouldn’t be good for her to forcibly break them apart.
After leaving Banyan Tree Courtyard, on the path to the main room, she saw two people standing in the verandah. It was a man and a woman. The man was Wei Chang Hong. The woman was wearing a peach colored jacket with a pattern of flowering branches. From her style of dress, she was this household’s servant. Wei Luo couldn't hear what the servant girl was saying to Wei Chang Hong. She saw him furrowing his eyebrows and looking very serious. After he reprimanded the servant girl, the servant girl lowered her head in shame and ran away.
By an unlucky coincidence, she ran past Wei Luo.
Wei Luo clearly saw her face. She was one of the fourth madam’s servant girls, Rui Zhu.
Wei Luo walked over to Wei Chang Hong and asked, “Chang Hong, what are you doing here? What happened with that servant girl?”
Wei Chang Hong said, “That servant girl tripped and I happened to catch her, so she wanted to give me a handkerchief.” When he said up to this point, he was already very clear about her intentions. He faintly furrowed his eyebrows and said, “I didn’t accept it and told her stay within the boundaries of her position.”
Wei Luo hadn’t expected that fourth aunt would have a servant girl like this. Wei Luo wasn’t happy. Wei Chang Hong was definitely outstanding, but not just anyone could cling to him as a way to improve their social standing. That servant girl’s courage wasn’t small. She dared to focus her attentions on a younger master from a duke family. She said, “I’ll tell fourth aunt about this matter, so don’t concern yourself with this matter. If something like this happens again, handle it the same way as today.”
Wei Chang Hong nodded and walked with her towards the main room.
Wei Luo suddenly thought of something important. She turned her head and asked, “Chang Hong, has daddy started looking for a marriage partner for you?”
Wei Chang Hong's footstep froze for a moment, but he quickly caught up to her, “He has.”
Wei Luo asked with great interest, “Do you know which families he’s look at? Did he bring you over to look?” She stopped at the verandah outside of the main room and grabbed Chang Hong’s sleeve, “Do you have a girl that you like?”
Wei Chang Hong also stopped walking. After thinking for a while, he finally said, “Fourth aunt looked at the girls from Marquis An Ling’s household for me.” He looked at Wei Luo before saying, “I didn’t like them, so I asked father to refuse.”
Wei Luo asked, “Why? Are the girls from that family not good?”
Wei Chang Hong said, “It’s not that. I just don’t want to marry them.”
Perhaps, it wasn’t meant to be. Wei Luo knew that this matter couldn’t be rushed or forced, so she was very open-minded. “Then tell me, what type of girl do you like?”
Wei Chang Hong didn’t immediately reply. He gaze shifted to look at something behind Wei Luo. When he looked at Wei Luo again, there was a hint of a smile in his eyes, “Naturally, it’s someone that’s similar to Ah Luo.”
Wei Luo didn’t notice his strangeness and only thought he was joking. She didn’t take his words seriously at all.
However, as soon as she turned, she saw that Zhao Jie was standing at the doorway. There was a smile at the corner of his mouth as he asked word by word, “Ah Luo, where did you go?”
Baby Jing asks for help: “As expected, younger brother-in-law is provoking me. What should I do? I’m anxiously waiting for answer.”
Offered solution: Beat him to death.
