Chapter 377: The Truth (2)
Shangguan Yan sneered. “Your analysis is reasonable. So you’ve been keeping quiet just now because you’re thinking of how to slander me. It’s a pity not to be a consultant since you’re so eloquent.”
Concubine Meng could feel that Shangguan Yan was angry. Her heart skipped a beat and she suddenly felt an inexplicable fear. Shangguan Yan was definitely not a pushover. Otherwise, she would not have subdued the servants. However, she was the concubine of the eldest branch and had never fought with Shangguan Yan, so she was not as afraid of Shangguan Yan as she was of Eldest Mrs. Xiao. However, after Shangguan Yan said a few words, she began to feel uneasy.
She’s caught between a rock and a hard place, so she had no choice but to lie.
Concubine Meng, who had made up her mind, clenched her fists and knelt on the ground. She said with an aggrieved expression, “Second Madam, what do you mean? What do you mean by I’m slandering you? I’m just telling the truth. If you don’t like to hear it, I won’t say it!”
Shangguan Yan snorted coldly. “You were the one who wanted to say it just now. Now, you’re the one who doesn’t want to say it. Who do you think you are!”
“I wouldn’t dare.” Concubine Meng knelt down aggrievedly.
‘???s ??????? ?s ?????? ?? NovelBin. ???.’,
“You said I did it. Where’s the evidence?” Shangguan Yan asked.
Concubine Meng lowered her head. “The kitchen is filled with Second Madam’s people. Where can I find evidence?”
Shangguan Yan suddenly sneered. “Why don’t I help you find it?”
Concubine Meng was stunned.
Shangguan Yan looked at the chef and said, “Who went to the kitchen today and who passed the dishes? Tell me in detail.”
“Yes.” This was a matter of life and death, so the chef did not dare to be careless. From the first thing he did when he woke up and entered the kitchen, a few servants in the kitchen added to what he had missed.
Shangguan Yan said unhurriedly, “In that case, the sweet potato leaves were made under Second Miss’s orders?”
“Yes.” The chef nodded.
Shangguan Yan said indifferently, “Eldest Master Xiao was originally going to eat in Eldest Madam’s courtyard, but he changed to Concubine Meng’s courtyard at the last minute. His attendant even ignored your objections and took away the dishes on the stove, including the plate of sweet potato leaves that had just been stir-fried?”
The chef hurriedly said, “That’s right. The eldest branch’s dishes aren’t ready yet. Eldest Madam instructed us to cook for the second young miss first before cooking for the eldest branch.”
Shangguan Yan stroked the handkerchief in her hand. “Can I understand it this way? If Eldest Master’s attendant didn’t come and take the dishes without permission, then the sweet potato leaves that were served with croton would appear at the dining table of the Bluecloud Pavilion?”
Concubine Meng’s eyebrows twitched! Eldest Mrs. Xiao paused.
Shangguan Yan turned to look at Eldest Mrs. Xiao. “Sister-in-law, even if I’m a god, I didn’t expect Big Brother to go to the kitchen to snatch food.”
There was no need for Shangguan Yan to say this. Eldest Mrs. Xiao had also understood it. That plate of dish was clearly targeted at the women of the Bluecloud Pavilion, and Shangguan Yan’s daughter-in-law was there. No matter how crazy Shangguan Yan was, she would not lay her hands on her daughter-in-law. Moreover, anyone with a discerning eye could tell that Shangguan Yan was very satisfied with her daughter-in-law.
If it wasn’t Shangguan Yan, then only this slut was left!
The chef suddenly said, “I remember! Concubine Meng’s maidservant went to the kitchen to urge the dishes!”
“It’s indeed you!” Eldest Mrs. Xiao stood up, walked up to Concubine Meng, and slapped her! “B*tch! It’s not enough that you harmed Ziyue once, you’re doing it again so quickly! It seems that you hate me and blame me for punishing your daughter, so you have to teach me a lesson!”
Xiao Yan was gone, and Xiao Ziyue was her only child. This b*tch could not bear to see her having a good life!
Concubine Meng did not expect that she had overlooked such a big flaw. Therefore, it was not unreasonable to say that the heavens had eyes. She crawled to Eldest Mrs. Xiao’s feet with her swollen cheeks and said stubbornly, “Madam, I didn’t!”
“Get lost!” Eldest Mrs. Xiao kicked her away.
Eldest Mrs. Xiao did not believe her. If she was a good person, she would not have seduced her husband back then. Her husband did not force her. She was willing to be a concubine and wanted to snatch her man!
Today, it was fortunate that the old man was blinded by lust and snatched the plate away by a freak combination of factors. Otherwise, who knew what would have happened to her daughter if it entered her stomach? Thinking of this, Eldest Mrs. Xiao even wanted to kill Concubine Meng!
Eldest Mrs. Xiao picked up the cup on the table and threw it at Concubine Meng. A bloody hole immediately appeared in Concubine Meng’s head.
Xiao Zilin was frightened. She cried and knelt down to hug Eldest Mrs. Xiao’s leg. “Mother! Aunt’s innocent! Let her go…”
