“Cousin!” Luo Tan slapped her thigh. “I knew you weren’t a pushover. I’ll do the same to Gao Yang if he dares to take women back. It’s not like I can’t find another man.”
Feng Anning was caught between laughter and tears.
“Don’t worry.” Shen Miao comforted them. “I’ll be fine. Those officials have been targeting me for a long time. When have they ever succeeded? Who said that women should be virtuous? It’s just a shackle given to women by the world. If he treats me well, I’ll treat him well with all my heart. If he doesn’t treat me well, I won’t hesitate to abandon him.”
“That’s true.” Luo Tan nodded.
The two of them chatted with Shen Miao for a while. Seeing that Shen Miao did not seem to take this matter to heart, they were relieved. After Luo Tan and Feng Anning left, Xie Shu and Xie Wu came to look for Shen Miao.
“Mother, are aunties looking for you because those officials wanted to send their daughter to the palace?” Xie Wu said as soon as he entered the hall. He had a lively personality and had already learned a lot of bad things from Xie Jingxing at a young age.
Xie Shu reprimanded, “Brother, don’t spout nonsense.”
Xie Wu said, “Mother, you can’t agree to let other women enter the harem.”
Shen Miao was amused by him and asked, “I wonder what your father will feel if he finds out that his son is sticking his nose in his harem.”
“If those strange women enter the palace, I will be worried. Mother is powerful, and those women are not your match. However, if those women use some method to get pregnant with a son, they will probably target Elder Brother. You know that Elder Brother is an upright person and disdains these dirty tricks. When the time comes, it won’t be a small matter.”
Xie Shu was extremely helpless. “Second Brother, stop spouting nonsense.”
“You’re actually thinking ahead for your brother.” Shen Miao smiled and said, “Shu hasn’t said anything yet.”
“Mother.” Xie Shu said, “Although Second Brother is spouting nonsense, I also think that if possible, it’s better not to let any women enter the palace. Back then, in order to be with Father, you suffered a lot. Father also promised you that he would only be with you for the rest of your life. I don’t want you to be sad.”
Shen Miao looked at her two sons and couldn’t help but feel sad. Back then, after giving birth to Xie Shu and Xie Wu, she fell into a deep sleep for a year. It was probably because of this that after they grew up, Xie Shu and Xie Wu were especially close to her. No matter what happened, they would always stand on her side.
“I know. I’ll handle this matter.” Shen Miao smiled. “Don’t worry. Everything will be fine.”
“But Father hasn’t made it clear yet that he doesn’t want to have any other women.” Xie Wu said, “Mother, aren’t you worried at all?”
“Wu, if you still question your father’s loyalty, I’ll tell him,” Shen Miao replied with a smile.
Xie Wu cleared his throat. “Well… I naturally believe in Father. Mother, then I won’t disturb you anymore… Take your time… If you have any problems that you can’t solve, call us.” Xie Wu pulled Xie Shu and ran away.
Shen Miao looked at their backs and couldn’t help but rub her forehead. She really didn’t take this matter to heart, but others were worried for her. Over the past few days, Shen Xin, Luo Xueyan, Feng Anning, Luo Tan, and Ji Yushu had all come to look for her and told her seriously that this matter couldn’t be tolerated. As a matter of fact, she couldn’t be bothered with these things. If Xie
Jingxing really wanted to have other women in the harem, she wouldn’t be able to stop him. Of course, although she couldn’t stop him, she wouldn’t let it develop either.
At night, Shen Miao sat in the Palace of Earthly Tranquility and read. The autumn day was very cool. As she read, she felt that someone was standing behind her. Without looking back, Shen Miao knew who it was. As expected, the next moment, Xie Jingxings voice sounded in her ear. “Shen Jiaojiao, it’s already so late.. What are you reading?”
