Chapter 231 - You Are Indeed A Lucky Star From Heaven
Xie Xingli was so excited that he couldn’t speak. His chubby and round face was filled with emotion.
Xie Yinxiang secretly glanced at Gu Nuo’er and thought of the princess’s encouragement to her.
She mustn’t just sink into oblivion like this. She had to grow up early. That would be the greatest comfort to her deceased mother.
She would only be able to fight back after she had become better!
Xie Yinxiang slowly lowered her head and sobbed. “I’ve caused Father a lot of trouble these past few days. I didn’t want to say it because I was afraid.
“I was scared that it’d damage Father’s dignity. However, the princess has advised me today and she hopes that I’ll tell you the truth. Otherwise, Father will always be kept in the dark. It’s my fault.”
Xie Xingli quickly said, “It’s no trouble, no trouble at all. You’re my daughter. Isn’t it only right for me to take care of you?! From now on, don’t think about anything else. Rest well and take care of your body. Father will arrange for a few more maidservants to attend to you.”
After saying that, Xie Xingli looked around and pondered for a moment. “This courtyard is too small. I think we’ll get someone to tidy up Xiaoxiang Court for you to move into today.”
Madam Xie was shocked. “Husband, didn’t you say that Xiaoxiang Court is to be left for Liuhua to live in when he turns eight years old?”
Xiaoxiang Court was the largest and most classically and elegantly decorated courtyard in the residence.
Moreover, it was behind Xie Xingli’s main courtyard. There were artificial mountains, flowing water, as well as a small pond with a stone bridge inside. It was very beautiful.
Madam Xie had long come to a consensus with Xie Xingli that it would be left for their youngest daughter, Xie Liuhua.
But now, the princess had only made a single visit and the courtyard was to be given to Xie Yinxiang?!
Xie Xingli was very angry at Madam Xie’s relentlessness.
“Yinxiang has been pestered by a malicious ghost for my sake. I’m just giving her a comfortable courtyard to stay in. What’s wrong with that?”
Madam Xie immediately scolded unhappily, “But you have to discuss this with me first!”
Xie Xingli glared. “Why should I discuss anything with you? Don’t forget who’s in charge of this family!”
Madam Xie was furious and was about to retort when her youngest daughter behind her tugged at her sleeve.
At this moment, Xie Xingli was in a fit of anger. Fighting head-on wouldn’t do the mother and daughter any good.
Instead, it would let Xie Yinxiang, the only daughter left behind by Xie Xingli’s previous wife, be able to take full advantage of them.
Xie Xingli realized that Gu Nuo’er was still beside him and restrained his temper a little.
He turned to face Gu Nuo’er respectfully, his expression mostly filled with smiles and gratitude.
“Your Highness, this subject doesn’t know I can thank you. His Majesty is right. You’re indeed a lucky star from the heavens to have resolved such a huge problem for this subject.”
Gu Nuo’er put her hands behind her back and said softly, “It can’t be considered resolved. This bad ghost will still pester Elder Sister Yinxiang for a few years. She will have to suffer a lot~”
Xie Xingli quickly said, “Princess, don’t worry. This subject will definitely take good care of my daughter and not let her suffer for nothing.”
That was right!
Gu Nuo’er was very satisfied.
“Uncle Xie, then don’t forget to let Elder Sister Yinxiang go to school! She’s already so pitiful. You can’t disallow her from studying too!”
“Yes, yes, yes. This subject will make all the arrangements. Princess, thank you for your trouble.”
Gu Nuo’er waved her small hand, her eyes pure and clear. “Uncle Xie, you’re being distant by saying this. You usually share my father’s burdens. This small favor is nothing to me.”
The child looked at the rainy sky. “Oh, it’s getting late. I have to go back to the palace too~”
Xie Xingli quickly bowed and said, “This subject will go arrange a carriage for Her Highness now. Yinxiang, send the princess to the door first!”
