Chapter 151: I’ll cripple her loved ones first
Third Son Shi and his wife knew about the health issue that Xiao Hanzheng mentioned.
When they went to the county town, the doctor said that Mdm Niu’s health had deteriorated because she had multiple childbirths in succession, so it was a little difficult for her to get pregnant in the next few years.
That was why Third Son Shi was so eager for the old immortal to show himself and bestow his wife with a son.
Now, Xiao Hanzheng told them that she could get pregnant after taking medicine for half a year.
Both of them were very happy. “Okay, as long as I can still be pregnant.”
The two of them did not doubt Xiao Hanzheng’s medical skills.
Didn’t they see that the nobles in the capital came to this small village to see Xiao Hanzheng?
They weren’t fools and wouldn’t look for Xiao Hanzheng if he didn’t have a good grasp of medical skills.

Third Son Shi said, “Then I’ll have to trouble you to write a prescription. I’ll go to the county town tomorrow to get the medicine.”
Xiao Hanzheng nodded. He got up and went to his study room to write a prescription and handed it to Third Son Shi.
After getting the prescription, Mdm Niu suddenly thought of something.
“Oh right, the illegitimate daughter that the Wu family is going to marry Fourth Son Shi came with another woman with a demonic aura around her. I overheard the servant girl saying that she was sent from the capital.”
Two days ago, when she went to the Wu family with her mother-in-law, she heard Wu Xixi’s servant girl saying it when she went to the latrine.
Shi Qingluo raised her eyebrows. “Demonic aura?”
Mdm Niu said, “She looked like a demon. Those women that men wouldn’t be able to keep a distance with when they see her. With one glance you can tell that she’s a perverted vixen.
“I don’t know if she was sent here to seduce Fourth Son Shi.”
With Mdm Niu’s brain, she naturally wouldn’t have thought that this servant girl was here to scheme against her son-in-law, Xiao Hanzheng.
But others were smarter and knew that those sent from the capital were that woman’s people.
Obviously, that woman wouldn’t sacrifice a beautiful girl to scheme against Fourth Son Shi.
Shi Qingluo praised Mdm Niu. “Very good. If you encounter something like this next time, you can come and tell me.”
Then, she went to get a bag of milk candies for her. “Take them back to nourish your body.”
Mdm Niu smiled as she took the candies. “No problem. If I hear anything in the future, I’ll come and tell you.”
This girl didn’t seem to be that annoying anymore.
No matter what, she crawled out of her own stomach.
As long as she could give birth to a son, she would write off past matters of having a daughter that jinxed her and caused her to suffer from a difficult labour.
Third Son Shi and his wife did not sit for long and left very quickly.
Fei Yuzhe looked at Shi Qingluo and her husband curiously. “You won’t let it go just like that, right?”
Xiao Yuanshi’s wife really had a venomous heart.
If he were her, he would definitely not let it go just like that.
Tarnishing her reputation was insufficient for him to vent his anger.
Xiao Hanzheng had already thought of how to take revenge. There was a trace of coldness in his eyes.
He only said a sentence, “If she wants to touch my loved ones, I’ll cripple her loved ones first.”
That woman had repeatedly tried to scheme against his little wife and had already stepped on his bottom line.
He had originally planned to take action after his imperial exam next year, but now he couldn’t wait any longer.
That woman had placed all her hopes on Ge Chunyi.
He should cripple Ge Chunyi’s plan to return to the capital after establishing some achievements at the border.
Xiao Hanzheng narrowed his eyes. Originally, he wanted to wait for Ge Chunyi to have some achievements first before making a move. Now, he would make sure he wouldn’t be able to reach the border.
Not sure why, Fei Yuzhe seemed to feel a sense of solemnity from Xiao Hanzheng.
He did not ask for specifics, but his short reply was sufficient.
It seemed like Xiao Hanzheng was going to attack first.
Fei Yuzhe thought further. “If they find out that we’ve dealt with Xiao Yuanshi and his wife in succession, will it affect your imperial examinations?”
If Xiao Hanzheng destroyed that woman’s loved ones, nobody knew if they would counter attack with a huge blow.
Shi Qingluo said, “It’s fine. They won’t dare.”
Fei Yuzhe was a little confused. “They won’t dare?”
Weren’t they always scheming against each other? How would they not dare.
Shi Qingluo smiled mysteriously. “After next month, they definitely won’t dare to disturb us easily at least for this period of time.”
Next month, they would hand over the seeds once the corn ripens.
The nation’s food supply was at stake, so the emperor would protect them no matter what.
As long as Xiao Yuanshi still had a sound mind, he could only endure it first and continue to endure further.
He would not go against the emperor at a critical moment.
Otherwise, if something happened to them right after they offered these high yield seeds, how would the people in Daliang think of the emperor?
Daliang was only established recently, and its foundation was still not very stable.
As long as the emperor was not a bad ruler, he would not discard those who had helped him.
Xiao Hanzheng also thought of this as well. “That’s right. Don’t worry, Brother Fei. We have a way to solve this.”
Fei Yuzhe, who was about to ask if he wanted his help, swallowed his words.
In front of Xiao Hanzheng and his wife, it seemed that it wasn’t easy for him to do them a favour.
Nevertheless, he was even more curious on how Xiao Hanzheng and his wife would force Xiao Yuanshi and his wife to not disturb them temporarily.
Otherwise, once Liang Youxiao and Xi Rui succeeded, with Xiao Yuanshi’s intelligence, he would definitely be able to guess that the two of them were behind this.
After all, Liang Youxiao had stayed in Xiaxi village for a period of time.
It would be too coincidental for him to cause trouble right after he returned to the capital.
If that woman’s loved one was destroyed, she would probably relate it to Xiao Hanzheng and his wife.
So how could those two still be able to endure them further?
However, seeing that Shi Qingluo and her husband were obviously unwilling to tell him, it wasn’t convenient for him to ask no matter how curious he was.
He could only wait and watch the show. Anyway, he wouldn’t need to wait too long.
The next day, Xiao Hanzheng said that he had to go to the prefectural city for a few days.
Shi Qingluo didn’t ask what his little hubby was going to do, but she knew that he was definitely going to fight back. This was enough.
She was very delighted that she was her husband’s bottom line.
Fei Yuzhe also guessed that Xiao Hanzheng was going out this time to cause trouble.
He was waiting to watch the show.
Xiao Hanzheng made a trip to the prefectural city and returned three days later.
He also brought back Liang Youxiao’s letter from the county town.
He and Shi Qingluo finished reading it together.
Shi Qingluo chuckled and said, “No Wonder Liang Youxiao wants to go into business. He has the potential to be a profiteer!
“He made the emperor’s uncle take the bait. He’s about to make a move.”
Xiao Hanzheng chuckled. “He is a different type of dandy.”
Shi Qingluo agreed very much. “Indeed.”
Other dandies only wanted to eat, drink, and rely on their families for success.
Only Liang Youxiao had the ambition to start a big business.
Shi Qingluo chuckled. “According to him, they’ll take action next month, and our corn will be ready just in time.”
Xiao Hanzheng smiled knowingly and squeezed her hand. “That’s true.”
Half a month later, Ge Chunru sent her brother out of the capital with teary eyes.
Apart from being reluctant to part, she was also looking forward to her brother’s return from his successful career and for him to glorify the Ge family again.
A few days later, Ge Chunru was listening to music in the backyard in a good mood.
Suddenly, their housekeeper ran in hurriedly.
Ge Chunru asked unhappily, “Why did you come in so hurriedly?”
The housekeeper panted and braced herself to say, “Madam, young master’s leg was cut off after leaving the capital. He was on his way back to return to the general’s residence.”
Ge Chunru’s expression changed drastically. She looked as if she could not believe the situation. “What? How is this possible?”
Then, she stood up abruptly. However, she felt dizzy and blacked out.
