Rebirth Of An Abandoned Woman - Chapter 58
Chapter 58: Shi Second Ma'am Returns Home
What really scared her was Shi Second Mistress. If not for Shi Lian and her servant appearing at the scene, Shi Second Mistress would surely make her be the scapegoat! At that time, the other three maidservants present were all under her, and sealing their mouth would be effortless! Shi Lian's appearance at the scene made her uncertain whether she had seen it or not, and thus, Sang Wan was let off!
Sang Wan simply could not imagine, how Wang Shi would think if it were her who 'pushed' Shi Second Ma'am into the pond, and Gu Fangzi would definitely make a huge fuss about it! After all, Shi Second Ma'am held no grudge against her nor would she want to point a blade at her. Even so, there were no excuses that could be made other than her being careless. But such an excuse lacked concreteness which would require the listeners to use their imagination.

After today, she would absolutely never return to the flower garden. And even if she had to, there must at least be one person from her side! Sang Wan secretly thought to herself.
In no more than two days, Shi Second Ma'am's mother and sister-in-law arrived at the Shi family's household. Seeing her family's own daughter lying on the bed in distraught, Mistress Zhou felt extremely sad and cried while pointing accusations. That Zhou's daughter-in-law was also a good one, comforting her mother-in-law, while also pointing her accusations. The mother-in-law and daughter-in-law then scolded Shi Second old Master and Shi Second Mistress until their faces turned red with embarrassment. In the end, Wang Shi had to come forward to mediate, saying a few good words to appease Mistress Zhuo, before using her authority as the Old Master's wife to scold the Shi Seconds. Only then did Mistress Zhou finally kept her tears reluctantly.
In a matter of course, Mistress Zhou demanded to have their daughter returned home to recuperate. Immediately, Shi Second Mistress because anxious and disagreed strongly. Having a son who ran away with a tavern lady was already embarrassing enough. Now to have her daughter-in-law return to recuperate, just what would the public say about them!
Was there any reason for Mistress Zhou to take into account for Shi Second Mistress's fear? She then began complaining of her own daughter's grievances again, and questioned when her son-in-law would be back. Shi Second Mistress was at a loss for words and could only watch as Mistress Zhou ordered her servants to pack her daughter's things. On the same day, together with her daughter, they left the Shi household.
Sang Wan heard it all from Liu Ya and could not help but envy Shi Second Ma'am secretly. At the very least when she returned, Shi Second Mistress would no longer dare to treat her again like before.
There was no such thing as a wall that cannot be penetrated. Originally, the news about Gu Fangzi marrying in was not supposed to be publicly announced until Sang Wan took the initiative to mention it upon Shi Fengju's return. However, in less than twenty days, the members in the household, from top to bottom, had somehow already knew of it.
Gu Fangzi met with Wang Shi and seeked for forgiveness, saying that when her father was in the household at that time, she should not have disclosed it to him for she did not think that he would openly come at her aunt for betrothal gifts so shamelessly until everyone in the household knew. She also apologized for not being careful and accidentally called her cousin-in-law ’’Sister’’!
Wang Shi never had any expectations of Gu Jin's mouth. Gu Fangzi revealing it to him was only in hopes that stop from coming over, but who knew it would have the opposite effect?
Wang Shi had nothing left to say and sighed, ’’Enough! Since this matter is already known throughout, there's no need to hide it anymore! Prepare what is needed to be prepared! When Fengju returns, we'll just carry it out and end it without any more complications!’’
Gu Jin's ruckus was getting from bad to worst, and Wang Shi was struggling to come to deal with him. What she did not know was that everything was plotted by Gu Fangzi, to force her to make an early decision.
Gu Fangzi felt perfect happiness, although her face showed a sense of gratitude as she spoke well-behaved to let her aunt be the one to decide!
Wang Shi smiled and nodded before having someone call for Sang Wan to discuss.
Sang Wan sneered in her heart. Of course, Gu Fangzi would certainly not be willing to let her do the favor for Shi Fengju, and not let her have the opportunity to show her ’’generosity and virtuousness!’’. She had already expected a possibility of this matter being leaked.
Nevermind, early or later, things would still end up the same! However, if Gu Fangzi thinks she would just sit there idly, then she was wrong!
Sang Wan face wore a natural smile and spoke gently, ’’Mother, rest assured for our Shi family isn't one which has never taken a concubine before! before! Everything will go accordingly with the customs! Although with the amount of time left, preparations may be done hastily, but I'm sure the difficult isn't huge and a certain standard should be guaranteed!’’
Hearing those words, Gu Fangzi's face darkened a little.
She was Big cousin's sweetheart, her aunts blood niece, and also one who grew up in the Shi family's household where she now manages the entire household! She, Gu Fangzi, how could she be put the same as other concubines out there?
Wang Shi was surprised for a moment and seemed to have heard that those gentle words from Sang Wan did not seemed quite right. But the thought of wanting to point it out was covered by the thought that she was just overthinking a little too much.
’’What you said isn't wrong,’’ Wang Shi hesitated for a moment be speaking, ’’Our Shi family has so many people, no matter the time, this is not something that cannot be accomplished.’’
’’Like Mother said!’’ Sang Wan smiled, ’’Our Shi family is one who follows custom. Even if time is of the essence, we're still one to follow it, otherwise, our reputation would be joked upon!’’
’’Yes! Yes!’’ Wang Shi loved listening to such words and could not help but smile as she nod numerously.
With that, the foundation of the matter was settled! Just an ordinary setting when receiving the concubine! Gu Fangzi gritted her teeth angrily and could not help but regret a little.
After all, she was not in the position to mention any requests. Gu Fangzi could not help but think, if Big cousin were here, she could just privately tell him whatever's been kept in her heart!
She secretly felt a sense of regret for pushing the matter. But thinking about, her Big cousin? He even wished for her to ’’believe’’ in him until god knows which monkey year it may be! Compared to that, better accept the benefits now than call quits!
Sang Wan then laughed, ’’Although the household had always been managed by Younger Sister, something like her own marriage shouldn't be handled by herself! If word got out, it'll be terrible! Mother, if you believe in Sang Wan, Sang Wan shall lend a helping hand!’’
’’Good! Good!’’ Before Gu Fangzi could refuse, Wang Shi was pleased and nodded again and again. She could not help but smile at Sang Wan, ’’My child, Mother was worried that your heart might hold some ill intentions! But to think you are so unexpectedly generous and virtuous! Then, for this matter, I shall leave it to you ’’
’’That wouldn't be good, right!’’ Gu Fangzi anxiously spoke without spoke without care, ’’Sister has never handled managing before, will Sister be able to do it? If the slightest mistake were made, wouldn't our Shi family lose face? Moreover, if Sister is working so hard for me, I will definitely feel in debt!’’
Wang Shi did not hesitate to ask Sang Wan after hearing Gu Fangzi, ’’That is also so, Sang Wan, will will you be able to handle it?’’
Nanny Li had never liked Gu Fangzi's frivolous behavior because behind it was definitely something sinister. She secretly sneered and smiled, ’’Missy, there's no need to worry about that! Whatever the Ma'am doesn't know, with just a call, laonu shall do it! Laonu wasn't able to witness the young master's marriage, but now that young master will be getting a concubine this time around, laonu will be more than happy contribute! Miss Gu, there's also no need to feel in debt at all!’’
Gu Fangzi's heart turned gloomy, but she could only follow with a smile. ’’For Nanny to be so caring, Fangzi shall give her thanks!’’
Nanny Li waved it away and spoke bluntly, ’’Miss Gu, there's no need to thank an old lady like me! This old lady only wishes to be able to contribute to young master, and is something laonu ought to do! Laonu doesn't deserve Miss Gu's thanks!’’
The meaning was clear. What I do has nothing to do with you, Gu Fangzi. Even if the young master would be receiving someone else as a concubine, I would still do the same for her!
Gu Fangzi's smile was grim and she glanced at Wang Shi to show her grievance.
Wang Shi returned a comforting look. Of course, she could not reprimand Nanny Li, and she smiled, ’’Since that's the case, then it's settled! This matter will be handled by Sang Wan, if there are any problems, just seek Older Sister for help.’’
Sang Wan quickly affirmed, ’’Mother, no need to worry. Nanny is experienced. I will humbly seek her advice and discuss everything with her!’’
’’Laonu, also, will fully support Ma'am! Nanny Li affirmed right after.
Gu Fangzi's immediately felt dizzy after hearing those words.
Unexpectedly, something which gave her even more of a headache happened right after when she heard Nanny Li asking, ’’Missy, there's also a matter which laonu may be speaking too inappropriately! The hierarchy of the household cannot be put into chaos. When Miss Gu enters the Shi family, she would be the concubine! The household already has a Ma'am, there's no sense to make a concubine manage the household. Missy, ’’
Wang Shi could not help but glance at Sang Wan. The thought Wan. The thought of Gu Fangzi's matter had already brought about injustice to her daughter-in-law. What's more, her daughter-in-law's performance in the Zhuang family's household already displayed how capable she was. And with Nanny Li and the management team, letting her manage the household would definitely be more sensible.
Besides, letting the concubine manage the household is indeed unpresentable!
And so, she nodded and smiled, ’’I have almost forgotten if you hadn't mentioned it! That would be the case, Sang Wan ah, you shall be the one to manage the household from today on! If there's something you do not understand, seek advice from Nanny Li and the management team! Oh, there's also Fangzi! She's very familiar with it, so you can ask her too! Fangzi, I hope you won't hide it all to yourself ah!’’
Gu Fangzi felt so nauseous that she almost vomited out blood! Just what is this? She hasn't even entered the Shi family yet and was already left with nothing!
’’Aunt!' Gu Fangzi was so furious that she could almost breathe fire, but on the surface, she showed a happy smile and acted flightily, ’’Fangzi wouldn't dare! From today on, we're a family! Even without Aunt saying it, Fangzi will definitely give support and help Sister manage the household!’’
Wang Shi somehow did not hear Gu Fangzi's implied meaning and nodded with a smile, ’’Hearing you say that, Aunt is relieved!’’
What a shameless woman, how did the young master fancy such a person! Nanny Li sneered secretly and spoke, ’’Missy, since everything has been settled, laonu thinks that picking a day to send Miss Gu home should be done as quickly as possible! The sedan chair must be carried out from the Gu family house in any case ah!’’
Gu Fangzi was taken aback by her words and became speechless.

’’You're very right,’’ Wang Shi straightened her brows and smiled a little, ’’Thankfully, you've reminded me. Otherwise, I might have forgotten about it! A matter simply doesn't need two people to handle;for this matter, Sang Wan!’’
’’Mother, rest assured. In two days time, Sang Wan shall arrange for it to be done and have a carriage send my younger sister home! The chamber in the household should also hurry with the cleanup!’’ Sang Wan smiled.
Nanny Li then added, ’’Miss Gu, do remember to hand over the keys before leaving so that everything can be done smoothly. Otherwise, things might get troublesome.’’
’’That is of course!’’ Gu Fangzi squeezed out those words from her mouth. The smile on her face exposed a little of her dissatisfaction.
