SOOEW Chapter 74 – The Emperor who tried to seize his wife XXXV
“Mother……” Song Xun, who was on the bed, had unknowingly woken up, and weakly grabbed the corner of her clothes, “Mother, don’t cry…… “
When Song Xi saw this, she quickly took Song Xun’s hand. Although she knew that it was her father who wronged Wen Ying first, Song Xi was afraid that while Wen Ying was excitable, she might do something to Song Xun. “Xun’er, you woke up, is there anywhere that’s uncomfortable……”
“Sister, you don’t need to be like this.” He paused, and weakly whispered: “Actually I know……”
Everyone in the room looked at him.
“Mother was always tender towards me, letting me run around in her house. Once, I heard her and Sister Qiu Se’s conversation. It was Dad who wronged her. Dad is too bad.”
Song Xi was shocked, “That snack……”
“Sister, you’re so stupid.” The fatty laughed, his plump face squeezed into a ball, “How can I like to eat the same dim sum all the time? Mother must also think that I won’t like to eat it anymore, and tossed it. However, I want to eat it, and if I feel uncomfortable, it can make mother feel better, and that brother or sister feel better……”
Wen Ying’s eyebrows moved, and Song Zheng looked at his son, but couldn’t say a word.
“Also, sister, didn’t you also not stop it?”
Song Xi was stunned.
“You knew from long ago that the snacks were poisonous, right?” That’s why she has been persuading him not to eat things from mother, he was saying as he was thinking. “However, mother has long stopped from placing the nasty tasting □□ inside. Rather, sister, the day before, what did you feed me? It tasted too terrible!”
“That was good for you!” Song Xi quickly explained, “The medicine I asked for from the imperial palace can clear out all the toxins that you have accumulated, and it happens to be……” It can also be used to expose stepmother.
She paused in the middle of speaking because she felt the unbelieving gaze from her father.
She didn’t think there was anything wrong before, but she suddenly became nervous.
And Song Xun’s words made her feel a little bit astonished after thinking about it. When the doctor ferreted out the □□, he said, “Fortunately, the amount administered is small”. It seems that it does not mean that she has taken the medicine in time, and the amount is small, but rather, her stepmother quit ahead of time.
But why did her stepmother stop?
She remembered the only difference between the two lives. It was the hardship of the bandits. In her last life, there was no Majesty, so she always lived in hatred. Yet in this life, what her father couldn’t give her, maybe his Majesty can give her. Hence, she came out of her hatred.
Yet, she only used the past to judge her stepmother.
“Song Xi.” Wen Ying held Song Xun’s hand and said softly to her, “I really wanted to treat you well. I only wished that you would not live to be like me.”
In the palace, Wei Lingheng also received news about what happened between them. He felt distressed, yet was also able to see the light from this incident. So he invited Song Zheng into the palace. Song Zheng seemed to have a detailed discussion with him, and then he took Wen Ying into the palace secretly.
The two had just gotten into the carriage, and Song Zheng’s henchmen reported: “My lord, Imperial Preceptor Sun has agreed to the invitation, and it is set at noon the day after tomorrow.”

“……there’s no need.” Song Zheng raised his hand and rubbed his eyebrows. “Prepare a gift for me to apologize to Imperial Preceptor Sun.”
The henchmen nodded suspiciously and stepped back.
“What’s wrong?” Wen Ying asked softly.
After that day, the two seemed to be back to the original point, and they couldn’t say more than a few words a day. When the two people used to get along, she had always been talking about trivial things in his ears. He seldom responded. Now she doesn’t say anything, but he seems to always remember those words in his head.
He explained in a low voice: “Previously, I thought that your Majesty wanted you, just to seek excitement. Although I am a courtier, I can’t let him do such a thing. So I want to ask Imperial Preceptor Sun to advise his Majesty for me. But now, there is no need……”
Wen Ying smiled and said, “Thank you very much.”
He used to think stubbornly and did something very wrong. But he also has some advantages. He can protect his wife, instead of using his wife for seduction, and selling his wife for glory. He is already much better than many men.
Entering the palace was just for a meal accompanied by their husband and wife pair.
It was a very ordinary meal, and the dishes are not luxurious. After Song Zheng hesitated for a while, he personally filled her bowl with soup but was stopped by Wei Lingheng.
Wei Lingheng shook his head, “She doesn’t like the taste of shiitake mushrooms. Let’s change to crucian carp soup.”
While he was giving him advice in his mouth, his hand actually personally reached out to scoop up the soup and place it in front of Wen Ying.
Song Zheng was silent, without saying a word.
After that, Wen Ying was reading in the side hall, and Wei Lingheng had another conversation with Song Zheng. As they left, she and Wei Lingheng looked at each other from a distance, and they had a tacit understanding that was difficult for others to intervene in. Song Zheng just watched.
It wasn’t until they returned to the house, when she got out of the carriage, he suddenly grabbed her hand and said in a low voice: “Peipei, I will treat you well in the future.”
Wen Ying looked at him without giving any answer.
They all know, it’s too late.
Three months later, a fire broke out in the Song Mansion.
The flames seemed to be licking the night sky, and Song Zheng stood in front of the house in the upper room, with the fire shining on his face.
In the fire, he seemed to see her smile, her dimples blooming, and it was so sweet: “Husband……You didn’t like me calling you like this before, because this is a name that only my eldest sister can call, and I used to worry about it. But this is the last time I will call you this, husband, you have to take care.”
