37 What's the matter, ex-grandma?

Translator: Dragon Boat Translation Editor: Dragon Boat Translation

As soon as Xiao Hanzheng agreed, Shi Qingluo let go of his arm.

It made him feel helpless. This woman was making him disposable.

"Are you sure you can heal that purple chrysanthemum? It looks like this flower is going to die soon."

Shi Qingluo raised her eyebrows. "You don't believe that I can heal it?"

Xiao Hanzheng shook his head and explained, "No, I'm just afraid that you'll be deceived by Bai Xu."

Bai Xu was a businessman, and he was afraid that he might deceive his little wife.

When Shi Qingluo heard his words, her smile became even brighter. "That's more like it.

"But he won't be able to fool me like this.

"Don't worry, I can treat these flowers."

Seeing that she was so confident, Xiao Hanzheng smiled and said, "Mmm, it's good that you know what to do."

"You accepted his payment first?

"Otherwise, it would be impossible for you to buy so many things back."

Shi Qingluo replied, "I accepted a deposit of 5 taels of silver first."

Then, she curled her lips and said, "This was only because I mentioned you. Otherwise, he wouldn't believe me."

Xiao Hanzheng chuckled and said, "We are husband and wife. Believing in me is the same as believing in you."

Shi Qingluo looked up at his handsome face with a smile on it. 

His face was exceptionally beautiful, and she couldn't help but pinch the side of his face.

"My husband is so good at talking."

Xiao Hanzheng held her small hands that were causing trouble on his face.

It was warm and very soft, and his heart seemed to warm up a little as well. "I'm telling the truth."

Shi Qingluo chuckled. "Then I like to hear you tell the truth."

Xiao Hanzheng…

His little wife's mouth was not only fierce, but also very sweet to coax others.

Suddenly, there was a knock on the door, breaking the warm atmosphere of their conversation.

Xiao Hanzheng and Shi Qingluo said at the same time, "My/your grandmother is here."

After saying that, the two of them looked at each other and smiled together.

Shi Qingluo said, "I'll go and open the door. You sit down over there."

Xiao Hanzheng let go of her hand. "Okay!"

Shi Qingluo walked over and opened the door. 

She saw an old lady who looked a little bitter and mean standing at the door.

A young woman dressed like a servant was supporting her.

Behind her were not only Mdm Wu and Mdm Wang, but also two young men who looked older than Xiao Hanzheng.

Shi Qingluo pretended not to know them. "You are?"

Old Lady Xiao snorted coldly. "I am Xiao Hanzheng's grandmother. Who do you think I am?"

Only then did Shi Qingluo put on a look of sudden realisation. "So it's his ex-grandmother. What can I do for you?"

Old Lady Xiao had already heard a lot about Shi Qingluo from her two daughters-in-law.

She said unhappily, "What nonsense are you talking about?"

"An elder came to a younger generation's house, and you didn't even invite me in?"

She looked at Shi Qingluo with an outrageous expression.

Shi Qingluo looked surprised. "Didn't we break off ties and split up the family? If you're not my ex-grandmother-in-law, then who are you, Old Lady Xiao?"

"You!" Old Lady Xiao choked.

But this was the truth, and she couldn't deny it.

She snorted coldly. "Even if we break off our family ties, it won't change the fact that I'm Xiao Hanzheng's grandmother."

Shi Qingluo nodded. "Blood ties indeed won't change, but we're already in the records of both the clan and the yamen, so you're just my ex-grandmother-in-law."

Old Lady Xiao…

This daughter-in-law that Xiao Hanzheng had found was simply too unlikable.

She said with a sullen face, "I came to see Zheng'er."

Shi Qingluo looked as if she had seen a ghost. "You finally remember about your ex-grandson?"

Old Lady Xiao…

Don't think that I didn't hear your sarcasm.

Shi Qingluo's reaction made Old Lady Xiao feel rather uncomfortable.

"Where's Mdm Kong? Tell her to come and see me."

She still preferred to interact with Mdm Kong.

Shi Qingluo opened the door. "My mother is busy in the backyard and isn't free. If there's anything you need, just look for me. I'm in charge of this family now."

Old Lady Xiao's expression turned even uglier. "You really have a big mouth."

Seeing the door open, she unceremoniously walked in.

However, the servant girl beside her was stopped by Shi Qingluo.

Shi Qingluo said bluntly, "Our family doesn't welcome a servant girl who is an outsider."

Xinghong's face changed slightly as she looked at Old Lady Xiao aggrievedly. "Old lady, I..."

Before she could finish her words, Shi Qingluo interrupted her. "It's useless to call anyone. My family doesn't welcome you."

Old Lady Xiao said unhappily, "She's now my servant girl."

Shi Qingluo looked at her without giving her any face and said, "If you want to bring her along, then don't go in."

Her gaze landed on the two men, and her hands clenched into fists. 

"Although I don't hit old people, I can hit people of the same generation as me."

Mdm Wu and Mdm Wang had personally seen it, and they had even experienced Shi Qingluo's martial prowess.

Mdm Wang immediately said, "Mother, if that's the case, then let Xinghong wait for us outside the door, or we can go back to the old residence first."

She absolutely believed that this wretched girl would strike on her son.

Madam Wu was also afraid that Shi Qingluo would touch her son, so she followed suit and advised, "Mother, let's go in and see Zheng'er. It's indeed not good for Xinghong to follow him."

She was certain that if Old Madam insisted on bringing Xinghong along, the wretched girl would definitely not let her in.

Old Lady Xiao thought to herself, these two daughters-in-law who were always valiant were actually cowardly. How embarrassing.

Xinghong wondered, who was she actually hindering?

Even though Old Lady Xiao did not really believe that Shi Qingluo would make a move, she still turned to Xinghong after some thought. "You can go back first."

Xinghong felt really wronged this time. "Old lady, I want to serve you."

Shi Qingluo stabbed a knife in the side. "Serving is fake, but wanting to spy on the old lady is real, right?"

She then said to the old lady, "Ex-grandmother, her master is the one in the capital. She won't listen to you."

Old Lady Xiao also understood that this wretched lass was openly trying to sow discord.

However, as this made her uncomfortable, she looked at Xinghong with a dark expression. "If you don't listen to me, you can go back to the capital to look for your master."

Don't think that she was a fool. 

This servant girl was obviously serving her, but in her heart, she did not respect her.

Disobeying this wretched servant girl in front of her was disgracing her and making her very unhappy.

These words made Xinghong's expression successfully change. She bent her knees and said, "Yes!"

She glanced coldly at Shi Qingluo as she was forced to leave the courtyard, but she didn't return to the old residence either.

Shi Qingluo also gave her a cold look. "Servants must speak like servants. Don't think that just because her master has flown up to the branches and become a sparrow, they can be arrogant too."

After saying that, she ignored Xinghong and gestured to Old Lady Xiao. "Ex-grandmother, Please!"

Old Lady Xiao snorted and walked into the courtyard with the support of Mdm Wu.

Shi Qingluo looked at her and could tell that she was in good health. She looked as if she wanted to be an old matriarch, a classic example of a hypocrite.

After letting Mdm Wang and the two young men in, Shi Qingluo closed the door and fenced off Xinghong's angry and exasperated gaze at the same time.

As soon as Old Lady Xiao entered, she saw Xiao Hanzheng sitting calmly in the courtyard with a complicated look in his eyes.

When the two young men saw Xiao Hanzheng, they subconsciously shrunk their necks. Clearly, they were a little afraid of him.

Xiao Hanzheng stood up with a cold attitude. "What's the matter, ex-grandma?"

He had learned this title from Shi Qingluo, and he felt that it suited him very well.
