Chapter 199: You Think I’ll Eat Her?

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

Wen Mo let out a sigh and looked at his grandfather with concern.

Old Master Wen was clearly annoyed and said, “Hurry and go over there. Do you think I’ll eat her?”

Wen Mo awkwardly smiled and said, “Alright, 1’11 sit over there.”

Old Master Wen nodded.

Once Wen Mo had moved away, Jiang Ling’er spoke up, “Old Master Wen, please go ahead and tell me what’s on your mind.”

Old Master Wen frowned and said, “When we returned home yesterday, Nuan Nuan had an outburst, and she even coughed up blood.”

Jiang Ling’er was shocked to hear this news. She couldn’t understand why Wen Nuan was taking it so hard. But then she realized that Wen Nuan had gone from being the family’s favorite to suddenly facing opposition from everyone, which would be difficult for anyone to endure.

Jiang Ling’er asked with concern, “How is she now? Can I go see her later?”

Old Master Wen remained silent.

Seeing that he didn’t respond, Jiang Ling’er grew more emotional and said, “I’m begging you, let me visit her. Maybe I can help her ease the emotional turmoil.”

“How will you help?” Old Master Wen asked.

He looked at Jiang Ling’er with some suspicion. He didn’t want his granddaughter to get too close to Jiang Ling’er. However, if Jiang Ling’er was not capable, Nuannuan wouldn’t have taken her seriously.

Jiang Ling’er was silent for a moment before she said, “I think there are two reasons for Nuannuan’s behavior. First, she’s not satisfied with the arranged marriage, and second, she senses your bias against me.”

Old Master Wen was taken aback. He hadn’t expected Jiang Ling’er to think along the same lines as him.

Old Master Wen asked, “So, what do you suggest we do to help her overcome this… emotional turmoil?”

Jiang Ling’er pondered for a while and then replied earnestly, “Regarding the arranged marriage, don’t force her. Let things develop naturally. Don’t talk about how great the other person is in front of her, and don’t mention how you’re pushing this arrangement for Nuannuan’s sake. Ultimately, whether they end up together depends on their fate.”

Old Master Wen stated, “But Xiaofang is a very good man.”

Jiang Ling’er let out a soft sigh and said, “Old Master Wen, do you know that another woman once bore this man’s child? If the child hadn’t passed away, that woman would have become his wife a long time ago.”

Old Master Wen sighed lightly and said, “I’m aware of what you’re talking about. However, Xiaofang is also a victim. He was deceived as well, but because the other party was a woman, he believes he is in the wrong. Since the situation has already occurred, he feels responsible, as a responsible man should.”

Old Master Wen told Jiang Ling’er about this because he did not want her to misunderstand the Fang Family’s Young Master.

Jiang Ling’er couldn’t help but smirk inwardly. A responsible man, indeed!

Jiang Ling’er continued, “Old Master Wen, you are a person of great principles, and it’s understandable. In your perspective, he didn’t do anything wrong, and he’s very responsible.”

After a brief pause, she went on, “However, have you considered that if that child were healthy, that woman would be considered a good person? In your view, this highly responsible man would have married another woman.”

Old Master Wen’s mouth twitched. That’s right, no matter how good he was, Xiaofang would not have been a suitable match for the Wen family.

Jiang Ling’er looked at Wen’s grandfather and continued, “He was able to easily accept responsibility towards another woman. In that case, what benefit is there for your granddaughter in this marriage arrangement? A responsible person indeed deserves praise, but not all responsibilities are shared equally, don’t you agree?”

She contemplated for a moment and added, “If 1 were to suddenly accuse you of misconduct and then sit on the ground crying, forcing you to apologize, would you admit to your wrongdoing?”

Old Master Wen frowned and responded, “I’m not at fault, so why should 1 apologize? I’m not a young man anymore. Why would I molest a young girl like you?”

Jiang Ling’er smiled and said, “You’re not at fault? Your fault lies in being alone with me. Haven’t you heard that men, no matter how old, tend to favor young and beautiful girls?”

Old Master Wen was momentarily speechless. According to Jiang Ling’er’s analysis, Xiaofang was indeed at fault.

After a short silence, he said, “But to have people believe you, someone needs to back up your words.”

Jiang Ling’er responded seriously, “Rumors can be stopped by wise people. Do you think there are many wise people?”

Jiang Ling’er glanced at Old Master Wen.

Then she continued, “Some people say that you are an upright man with a good character and would never molest a little girl. Some people say that 1 am a good person, so why would 1 malign an old man? Some people will say that you do not think highly of me, so 1 purposefully frame you. And some might even say that 1 would be a fool for falsely accusing someone who could wipe out the Jiang family.”

After saying this, Jiang Ling’er paused for a moment again and then said, “In short, some people will side with you, but there will also be people who will help me..”
