Wretched Original Spouse vs Top Mistress (13)
Zhang Mingshu had already pondered about a Meng family in the capital secretly; however, there were many people surnamed Meng solely in the capital, and there were no fewer than ten families. She could not guess which family Gu Shengyin was in. (张明姝已经暗暗的思索了一下京城姓孟的人家，无奈孟氏是大姓，光是京城之中，就不下十家，她也猜不出来顾盛因到底是哪一家的小姐)
When Gu Shengyin took off her veiled hat to eat, Zhang Mingshu felt that the room had brightened.
She was usually conceited about her own appearance, but she did not think she would meet someone who would make her look like dust. (她素来自负自身容貌，却不想，随处遇上的一个人，居然将自己比到了尘埃里)
She pressed down the jealousy in her heart and smiled: “Meng jiejie is really beautiful and really lets people feel ashamed.”
Gu Shengyin brightly smiled: “For people like us, there is no need to rely on beauty to serve others. There’s no need to take it so seriously.” (顾盛因粲然一笑：“我们这样的人家，又不用靠着美貌以色侍人，又何必太把它当回事儿呢)
These words happened to stab Zhang Mingshu’s soft rib1.
Yes, for xiao jies of high officials like Meng jiejie, all of them would have a father or elder brother who could take charge. Relying on their family status, they could find a good son-in-law. Where would they need to be like her, advancing one step after another just for the sake of her future? (对呀，像是孟姐姐她们这样的高官小姐，所有的一切，都有家族父兄为她们打点，凭着门第就可以觅得佳婿，又哪里需要像自己这样，步步为营，为自己挣一份前程呢)
Following that, her mood was somewhat lacking. Gu Shengyin also saw her expression and knew that she had a lot of thoughts in her heart. Rather than sitting there for a while, she departed.
Only, when Gu Shengyin left, she did not anticipate that she would be seen by a certain someone.
Qin Shao recognized her at a glance. It was his xiao shimei, Liang Chenyu, who came out from the large courtyard.
According to reason, the two of them are not too familiar with each other. He did not pay too much attention to this xiao shimei before, but somehow, even if she wore a veiled hat, he could still recognize her with a glance.
It was just that Liangfu seemed to not have a residence here?
He was doubtful and commanded the person at his side: “Investigate who the owner of this house is. Additionally, check what my xiao shimei did today and who she met.”
He was worried that she was deceived because she was young.
The secret guard nodded before suddenly asking: “Xiao shimei?”
Qin Shao said faintly: “The daughter of Teacher’s family.” (秦韶淡淡道：“老师家的女儿)
“Subordinate understands.” The secret guard was surprised. He didn’t expect the Holy One, who was very serious with Taifu, would unexpectedly match courtesy with a fellow disciple(?) (属下明白。”那暗卫心中吃惊，没想到太傅圣眷居然如今深重，今上竟真的以弟子礼相称)
Gu Shengyin was not aware that her whereabouts were being checked by someone.
By the time Qin Shao returned to the Imperial Palace, the things that he wanted to know had already been checked clearly.
If you aren’t already doing so, please read this at the original site, jiamintranslation.com.
“You’re saying that house was arranged by Zhenbei Wangfu for that biao mei who had an affair with Zhenbei shizi?” Qin Shao was furious when he heard this.
It turned out that Zhenbei Wangfu’s decision was to just change places and to taste honor? Zhenbei Wangfu, very good. (原来敲打一番，镇北王府做出的决定就是换个地方，好吃好喝的荣养着)
“Then, how did xiao shimei know that person?” Seeing xiao shimei‘s appearance today, there was no anger and did not seem to appear to know the hidden matters. (那小师妹如何知道那一家的？”看今日小师妹的样子，未有气愤之色，不像是知晓其中事情的样子)
“Liang xiao jie‘s encounter with Zhang Mingshu was just a coincidence…” The secret guard elaborated on the encounter between the two at Western Pavilion.
If Gu Shengyin heard this, she would have certainly exclaimed in admiration at the secret guard’s capability; even the slightest detail was not overlooked.
In other words, xiao shimei basically does not even know who Zhang Mingshu was? She still thought she made a new friend?
Qin Shao inexplicably felt distressed towards that girl with little deer-like eyes who aroused people’s pity. (秦韶莫名的为那个有着小鹿一样眼神的姑娘感到心疼)
“Okay, you can go first.” He waved his hand for the secret guard to retreat and stood alone, sinking into contemplation.
Rage welled up in his heart towards Qin Yuanzheng. He was indignant towards Qin Yuanzheng because he had such a good fiancee, yet his heart was still remembering a woman who did not know honor and shame for hooking up with her biao ge.
