Chapter 9 – General’s Young Lady vs. Transmigrated Illegitimate Younger Sister (8)
Gu Shengyin and her maidservants had somewhat dazed expressions.
“Junzhu?” Hu Zhu seemed rather worried about Gu Shengyin. Even though other people were not aware of the engagement between her junzhu and the Crown Prince, they were all very clear about what their duties to their junzhu were, and this was clearly awful. Today, the actions of the Crown Prince and Jiang Yunshan were simply a slap in the face to Jiang Lingzhen.
Gu Shengyin’s face was still somewhat pale. Based on the personality of the original Jiang Lingzhen, if she discovered this kind of thing, she would inevitably not inform her parents. She might even order her maidservants to keep their mouths shut and not leak any information of this event.
She, Gu Shengyin, was definitely not willing to do so! Why should she let off that dog couple so easily!
(E/N: 狗男女 [gǒu nán nǚ] – meaning: dog male and female; means a cheating couple or couple with shi—-bad personalities)
Wencheng chang gongzhu could see at a glance that there was something wrong with her baby after she came back.
“Ah-Zhen, what happened? Did you encounter something that made you unhappy outside?” Wencheng chang gongzhu asked with a distressed look on her face.
When Jiang Lingzhen saw her mother, the emotions she had kept bottled up erupted. She instantly threw herself into Wencheng chang gongzhu‘s arms and cried.
Wencheng chang gongzhu suddenly started panicking. She was always noble and composed on the outside but Jiang Lingzhen was her only daughter who she loved dearly from the depths of her bones. She was the pearl in her heart. Moreover, ah-Zhen had always been in control of her emotions. Where would you ever see her crying like this?
No matter how she coaxed her, Gu Shengyin only continued crying and would not say anything.
Gu Shengyin, of course, would not say that she was wronged. The more she said she was not wronged, the greater the anger Wencheng chang gongzhu would have. Although this behavior somewhat took advantage of her love for her daughter, Gu Shengyin thought of the fate of the original Jiang Lingzhen and the Jiang family and could only supress her personal feelings.
“What happened when you two went out with the junzhu today?” Wencheng chang gongzhu‘s sharp gaze shot towards Hu Zhu and Lin Liang.

Hu Zhu and Lin Liang naturally did not dare conceal the matter. Trembling with fear, they knelt down on the ground and said that they saw the Crown Prince and Second Young Lady having improper relations today.
“Absolutely disgraceful!” It was unknown whether Wencheng chang gongzhu was scolding Crown Prince or Jiang Yunshan. “This…This is simply bullying!”
She had never expected that, in the pure land of Buddha, under her own eyes, the two would actually do this kind of dirty thing.
“Ah-Zhen.” Wencheng chang gongzhu gently pulled Gu Shengyin into her arms.
“Tell Mother, do you actually like the Crown Prince?”
Gu Shengyin stared blankly for a moment. She had a bewildered expression with reddened eyes and nose, which seemed exceptionally pitiful. She shook her head and whispered: “I don’t know.”
The original Jiang Lingzhen naturally liked him, but that was after marriage. Before that, Jiang Lingzhen had simply held a favorable impression of the Crown Prince. Since she had changed to Gu Shengyin, it was impossible that she would have a positive attitude towards him.
Seeing her like this, Wencheng chang gongzhu relaxed.
The reactions of her daughter clearly indicated that she was not emotional. Today, she had been greatly insulted. It was probably because the Crown Prince’s behavior had hurt her face.
She breathed a sigh of relief. This was much easier to handle. If ah-Zhen really had feelings for the Crown Prince, she would have to spend effort to dissuade her daughter. No matter what, this type of Crown Prince was unlikely to be a good match.
She stood up and told the servant girl to fetch some hot water before turning towards Gu Shengyin, who was staring blankly ahead: “Ah-Zhen, look at Mother.”
Gu Shengyin looked at her a bit hesitantly.
“You are the daughter of this chang gongzhu, the only legitimate daughter of the great Jiang General, and have been bestowed the title of Langhua junzhu by the Emperor.” Wencheng chang gongzhu looked at her proudly. “No matter what, you can lift your chin proudly. People like the Crown Prince and Jiang Yunshan are not worth your tears!”
I bet no one in the capital city can beat her status. Badass dad, princess mom, having her own title…Whoever gets to marry her will feel like winning the lottery 😉
