Male Wife - Chapter 26
His first wife Lady Gan is a real noble lady with outstanding education and upbringing, if not for the family accident. He heard that Luo Momo came from the palace after being expelled because she offended an indecent nobleman. She never mentioned the past and others could only guest one or two.
Thinking of the past, Xie Liangbe couldn’t help but sigh, his first wife Gan is a good wife, every man’s dream, and she is beautiful, virtuous and not jealous. He never worry about family affairs, he can spend money if wants, if you want to take a concubine, take a concubine…Looking at Madam Lin now, he became annoyed. Madam Lin is gentle but harsh, charming but irritating and less generous and dignified, moreover there is always a problem.
The accounts are always unclear.
He didn’t suspect that Madam Lin is secretly moving his money to fill her pockets, he just feel that Madam Lin’s skills are not enough. He is often pitted by people, he don’t want to be underestimated and cover his face but the days have grown and the small number has rolled into large amount.
But it will be different if he change to Luo Momo.
Luo Momo has enough skills, it is impossible for such things to happen. If it happens, she is the servant and he is the master. He can punish her whenever he wants.
Thinking about it this way, Xie Liangbe’s heart blossomed and he felt that his son is very promising and with all said his heart is at peach!
“Okay, just do it!”
Madam Lin, bit his tongue.
She didn’t see it coming, this cheap bastard was hidden deep enough! Was he able to expect her reaction ahead?
No, Luo Momo is too difficult to deal with, it took her several years, if it weren’t for a series of calculations to trick the lives of two cheap species together, she would not be able to get the stewardship.
Does this person has to come back?
“Luo Momo would be oldest in the mansion, yes she has experience and it is suitable for us to feed her but she is very old and has a serious illness before. I can’t support this, whether she can manage the household is yet to be known…” Madam Lin looked at Xie Liangbe, “Master is kind, so you can’t let her get tired.”
Xie Liangbe hesitated.
He’s not afraid of her dying, but afraid of his reputation.
Xie Tingyue smiles: “No need to worry, I brought Luo momo”
Madam Lin had blood choked in her throat and almost sprayed it out!
Stupid! This is stupid!
She couldn’t help but scold herself, this bastard suddenly mention Luo Momo, he prepared enough to dug a hole and wait for me to jump in. Now that Luo Momo is mentioned, Luo Momo will of course be able to come! Why was she not able to for see this!
As Xie Liangbe nodded, a woman with long face and round bun on the back of her head, wearing dark blue dress walked in.
Her sideburns are white *showing some spring and autumn but the whole person is meticulous, hair properly combed, her clothes are all clean there are no folds at the corners. Standing with straight back, the rhythm of bowing and saluting, even the distance of each step, they all seem to have been measured with ruler. This person who has engraves the rules on her bones.
(TL: *idiom- old)
“This old slave pays respect to the master, the madam, the second young master and the new son-in-law”
Not to mention her abilities, just the short walk in and salute are enough for people to admire!
There is no problem with her physical health!
“Good!” When Xie Liangbe saw the old servant he thought of his first wife and his heart was upset. When his first wife passed away Xie Tingyue and Xie Tingxing were most concerned about. Over the years, he was also busy and neglected them somehow. “Luo Momo can come back. The second child is already married and I can feel relieved, but Xing’er is skinny, and was sent to academy to study. Now he doesn’t even want to go back home. Now Luo Momo will take care of it for me.”
Luo Momo’s eyes dropped slightly, always keeping her eyes on the ground.
The response is not long but the posture was strong enough.
Xie Tingyue smiled: “I went to pick up Luo Momo because I wanted to employ her, but it seems that she is more needed her at home.”
Xie Liangbe looked at him and smiled very satisfied: “It can be seen that, father and son are in same heart!”
Seeing that the situation is fixed, Madam Lin knew that today’s result could not be change, so she cried while pulling the veil: “This concubine will reflect on her wrongs, this concubine has nothing to worry about now, the only thing that troubles me now, is master…The winter is here, the night will be long and cold, this concubine can’t wait on your side, Master must pay attention to your body…”
This thoughtful words are full of hidden secrets.
The night is long, there is no bed warmer, you think about me more when your lonely.
