Mother Xiaos face could not help but darken.
She asked, “It cant be right Are you saying that he wants to reconcile with me”
Shi Qingluo nodded.
“Thats most likely the case.”
Mother Xiao was baffled.
“Would he be willing to let that delicate wife of his suffer”
Shi Qingluo said, “He might be trying to coax you back to be his wife.
So my siblings and I will have to mend our relationship with him.”
After he heard that, he could roughly guess his scumbag fathers motive.
He had to admit that his biological father was still as scumbag as he had been in his past two lifetimes.
Mother Xiao instantly felt a chill run down her spine.
“He wants to go back to his roots, but Im not going to.”
Now that she had seen through Xiao Yuanshis true nature, she would not be so foolish as to fall for his trap again.
However, that scumbag man had really gone too far.
He actually wanted to use his feelings to scheme against her again.
Shi Qingluo patted her hand gently to comfort her.
“Mother, dont be angry anymore.
If theres a chance in the future, give him a few more slaps to vent his anger.”
She suggested, “Or find an opportunity to put a gunny sack on him and you can go beat him up to vent your anger.”
Their scumbag father was really too much.
He actually wanted to make a move on her mother-in-law again.
Shi Qingluo looked at her mother-in-laws fair and tender skin.
She was already a beauty to begin with, and now that she was getting younger and younger, perhaps the scumbag fathers intention wasnt just to scheme.
He was interested in his ex-wife.
After all, many scumbag men were like this.
When a woman loved him to the point of being humble and giving him everything, he felt that the love that came knocking on his door was meaningless, so he treated her harshly and changed his heart.
When this woman suddenly stopped loving him one day and became more and more beautiful and glorious, a scumbag mans gaze could not help but be attracted to her again.
The more she treated him indifferently and gave him a slap in the face, the more he felt excited.
He wanted to conquer her again and make her bow down to him.
Especially if there was another outstanding man beside her, a scumbag man would feel even better about his ex-wife.
Then, she would be even more attractive.
Actually, Shi Qingluo was quite looking forward to a day like this.
Their scumbag father was interested in her mother-in-law, but she told him to get lost.
Mother Xiao thought for a moment and nodded.
“Thats not a bad idea.”
She even rubbed her hands together, wanting to put a gunny sack on her ex-husband.
Xiao Baili also said excitedly, “Mother, Ill help you put the gunny sack.”
Xiao Erlang was looking forward to it.
“Mother, Ill help to pass you the rod.”
The gloominess on Mother Xiaos face was swept away.
The best thing this scumbag man had done was to let her have three filial and sensible children.
Xiao Hanzheng was speechless.
His little daughter-in-law was really good.
She had led his mother, brother, and sister astray.
Mother Xiaos mood was much better after having a conversation with her children and daughter-in-law.
She had recently fallen in love with cooking, and her cooking skills had improved.
The dishes she cooked were no worse than those cooked by the restaurants chefs.
So, she dragged her daughter, who also liked to cook, to the kitchen.
After Xiao Erlang finished his homework for the day, he went out to visit the manor with his servant boy.
Only Xiao Hanzheng and Shi Qingluo stayed.
“Old Xiao, I think you can give the letter you prepared to Ge Chunru now.”
“Anyway, your scumbag father and the others are going to the northern border.
Why dont we let them go to the northern border and create more tensions among each other
“Its a good opportunity for Ge Chunru to see her brothers miserable state with her own eyes.”
According to the news sent from the northern border, Ge Chunyi was sent by Eldest Granson Xiao to dig a mine.
He almost froze to death in it.
Because he had lost a leg and had to dig with his crutch, he would often fall down and be ridiculed by others beside him.
If he couldnt finish his work, he would starve.
If it werent for that scumbag fathers people taking care of him behind his back, Ge Chunyi would probably have died.
If Ge Chunru, who loved her brother dearly, knew about this, it would be terrible.
If she knew that her husband was behind this, she would definitely look him to settle the score and make a scene.
Love begets hate, and only a dog-eat-dog show would be exciting.
Xiao Hanzheng chuckled and said, “I think so too.
“But Im going to change the content of the letter to let Ge Chunru know that it was Eldest Son Xiao who threw Ge Chunyi to the mining zone.
“When she reaches the northern border, she will be able to stir trouble with the old lady and the others first.
Then, she will deal with the old Xiao family in a way that will make the old lady and the others hate her even more.
“If I let someone reveal that it was my scumbag father who was behind it, she will go back to the northern border and stir trouble with him.
“When the old Xiao family know that they have been manipulated by the scumbag father, they will also hate him and create trouble.
“In this way, my scumbag father will not have much energy to develop his career in the northern border and make contributions before returning to the capital.”
His scumbag father was an expert in military affairs, and he was indeed capable on the battlefield.
Therefore, he had to make his scumbag fathers life miserable every day, so that there wouldnt be a chance for him to climb up again.
He had to pay the price for scheming against his mother, brother, and sister.
Shi Qingluo smiled gently at her black-hearted husband.
“Youre still the ruthless one, but I like it.”
Her plan was to let Ge Chunru and that scumbag father fight.
Now that her husband was even more ruthless, he had to involve the old Xiao family as well.
It would indeed be more exciting if the three parties fought.
The main reason was that the three parties were not good people.
They would not have to feel bad about it even if they fought.
They could even vent their anger.
Xiao Hanzheng looked at her and said jokingly, “I was also led astray by my wife.”
When he thought of this, he had indeed learned it from his young wife.
If this happened in the past, he would probably have directly schemed against his bad father and made him lose their position or something like that.
How could it be so fun to vent his anger and excitement by creating more tension like this
Shi Qingluo rolled her eyes at him in exasperation.
“You are bad to begin with, and you even threw the blame on me.”
Xiao Hanzheng smiled.
“Yes, yes, Im bad too.”
He was deeply moved.
“Birds of a different feather dont flock together, do they”
Shi Qingluo glared at him.
“Were clearly eliminating evil for the people, how are we bad”
Xiao Hanzheng laughed out loud.
“Yes, were both good people.”
If his scumbag father and Ge Chunru heard these words, they would probably spit in their faces.
Shi Qingluo suddenly thought of a problem.
“Remember to deal with that servant.
You cant keep such a betrayal.”
Xiao Hanzheng nodded.
“Dont worry, Ill deal with it.”
Because they rarely stayed in this manor, and because he had just received it from the emperor, he didnt change all of the servants here.
Now it seemed that he still had to handpick all of them and change his servants.
This matter also made him more vigilant.
As the two were talking, Xiao Hanzhengs personal attendant knocked on the door.
Xiao Hanzheng let him come in, “Whats wrong”
His personal attendant replied, “Master, Prince Yi wants to see you.”
Xiao Hanzheng was stunned.
“Please invite him to the living room.
Ill go over now.”
Shi Qingluo was also a little puzzled.
“Why did Prince Yi manage to find you here for a meet up”
Xiao Hanzheng was also surprised initially.
Then, he remembered that in his previous life, Prince Yi liked to rest in his hot spring manor during winter.
He guessed that it might be a coincidence.
“Maybe he lives nearby and heard that we were here, so he came to see me.”
Shi Qingluo nodded.
Then you should go.”
Xiao Hanzheng nodded and changed his clothes.
Then, he went to the room in his manor meant to host guests.
When he entered, Liang Yulin was already sitting and drinking tea.
There were also some gift boxes placed beside him.
“Greetings, Prince Yi!” Xiao Hanzheng entered the door and wanted to bow.
Liang Yulin stood up and raised his hand.
“Theres no need to be so pretentious outside.”
Xiao Hanzheng did not argue and straightened his back.
“Please take a seat, Your Highness!”
He then sat across from Prince Yi.
“Your Highness, are you here to look for me to treat your illness and recuperate”
