500 The Truth (3)
She pretended to be fine when facing him. There were a few times when he saw her crying alone. Coupled with the gossip around him, the guilt in his heart reached its peak.
Even at that time, he was still pretending to be mute. He went around looking for scar removal medicine to help her remove those ferocious scars.
However, it was useless.
It was not until a while ago, the day before General Xiao suggested booking a date for the marriage with Miss Yun.
He sent the medicine over and bumped into the drunk Feng Manman, although she didn’t remember it after she woke up.
However, he remembered that she threw herself into his arms and cried, saying that no one would want her anymore.
At that time, he suddenly woke up. He knew that it was impossible to remove those scars, but he was still looking for medicine.
Including when she said that she wanted to read, he taught her how to read.
All he did was to ease the guilt in his heart.
However, this was not enough to make up for it.
He had caused her to lose her marriage and ruined her life. He owed her this. He should take responsibility.
Xiao Ruoshui rolled her eyes. If this person in front of her wasn’t her biological brother, she wouldn’t have bothered.
She walked over and squatted down beside Xiao Qirui. “You know Father’s temper better than anyone. Even if you cancel your marriage with Sister Yuwan, he won’t agree to let you marry her.”
Xiao Qirui pursed his lips and did not say anything.
Xiao Ruoshui was furious and said angrily, “Are you really going to abandon your mother for a woman? Are you going to fall out with your family because of her?”
Xiao Qirui still didn’t speak.
Xiao Ruoshui took a deep breath. She was not angry. This was her biological brother, the person she and her mother could rely on in the future.
After comforting herself, she took two steps forward and squatted in front of Xiao Qirui to look at him. “I know why you want to marry her. It’s just a few scars, right? Can’t you just treat her?”
Xiao Qirui opened his mouth. “It can’t be cured. I’ve tried.”
Xiao Ruoshui was delighted. She had guessed correctly.
She took out a small round box from her pocket. “That’s because you didn’t find a good scar removal medicine. I spent a lot of money to buy this. As long as she uses it, she can definitely remove those scars.”
She had to spend a lot of money on Shen Yijia’s food. She even had to work hard for two hours.
Xiao Qirui glanced at the porcelain box and was about to say something when the door of the ancestral hall opened. The soldier reminded her, “Eldest Miss, it’s time.”
“Got it, got it,” Xiao Ruoshui said angrily.
However, after confirming that her brother did not like that woman, she was relieved.
She patted Xiao Qirui’s shoulder. “Stay here. Leave the rest to me.”
After leaving the ancestral hall, Xiao Ruoshui went straight to the small noodle shop.
There were no guests in the noodle shop. Feng Manman was sitting in the hall, writing.
When she saw who it was, she was stunned for a moment. She quickly stood up and asked, “Do you want to eat noodles?”
Xiao Ruoshui glanced at the brush, ink, paper, and inkstone on the table.
The paper was top-notch Clear Heart Paper. One piece cost nearly a hundred copper coins.
There was no need to mention the others.
Xiao Ruoshui gritted her teeth. She didn’t need to think to know who gave it to her. Even Xiao Qirui couldn’t bear to use such paper.
He actually gave it to someone to practice calligraphy.
This prodigal man!
Seeing that Xiao Ruoshui was silent and only staring at the table, Feng Manman put away the things in embarrassment.
“I’m Xiao Qirui’s sister.” Xiao Ruoshui went straight to the point.
Feng Manman paused. “Brother Xiao…”
On the other side, Shen Yijia asked Mo Yuan to send Wang Mingan home and patted Brother Hao’er’s head. “You did well.”
Brother Hao turned his head awkwardly.
He had already written the beginning, but Wang Mingan came to him and said that he wanted to sell the novel.
He could only bring Wang Mingan home.
Although his sister-in-law had also praised him, he still felt uncomfortable.
He thought for a moment and stammered, “Sister-in-law, actually, I wrote one too.”
Moreover, it was definitely not inferior to what Wang Mingan had written!
“Huh?” Shen Yijia was stunned. It took her a long time to react. She smiled and said, “What book did you write?”
Brother Hao blushed and took out the booklet he had written.
Shen Yijia took it and flipped it open. She read the first few lines and could not help but laugh out loud.
“Sister-in-law.” Brother Hao suddenly regretted it.
Shen Yijia held back her laughter and rubbed Brother Hao’s head. “You wrote well, but you still have to focus on your studies. Our family isn’t short of money now, right?”
It turned out that not everyone could write a novel.
