Chapter 109: Deceiving Uncle Sheng (6)
Ning Cheng Yuan and several nobles looked at Shu Nuan. They thought she would speak Sheng Qianmo’s name. After all, he was her only backing.
But Shu Nuan remained silent. The little girl didn’t seem afraid of bringing trouble to Sheng Qianmo’s reputation, but she was still something else. She just sealed her lips.
“What a haughty girl! Whose child are you? You are such a disrespectful person that you really do not deserve to study in such a place as the academy. Put her in a dungeon!”
After the empress commanded in her fury, Ji Xili couldn’t help but frown and remind her, “Empress Dowager, so many students are watching. Why don’t you listen to what she has to say first?”
Sheng Zhiyu and Ning Cheng Yuan nodded to agree with her. The empress dowager’s attitude turned calmer upon hearing her. Sheng Zhiyu saw the change and pulled out Sheng Gu out of the dowager’s arms. He frowned, and asked, “How old are you? Can’t you explain this?”
“Does Fifth Uncle also care for her more?”
The princess cried and stared at him.
“…I just want you to make things clear.”
The dowager glanced at Sheng Zhiyu and then looked at the princess in a soothing way.
“Little Gu, you speak. What’s the matter?”
“I was talking with my classmates, grandmother. Suddenly, she rushed in and hit me. The students here can testify,” she said between sobs.
The students who’d been present testified for Sheng Gu one after another. It had been their first time seeing Shu Nuan be so rude.
Shu Nuan was still calm and, in the end, opened her mouth.
“Sheng Gu sullied my reputation first.”
Without waiting for someone to ask, Sheng Gu stared at Shu Nuan and said, “When have I slandered you? Do you dare to say you didn’t enter the academy relying on my Fourth Uncle? Didn’t you make him treat you so well by crawling into his bed? You dare say… Wasn’t it you who went to the medicinal hall yesterday to buy musk?”
Hearing these words, the dowager looked incredulously at Shu Nuan. Then, she stared at Sheng Gu, and her expression became grave.
“Little Gu, what are you talking about? You were raised by your Fourth Uncle since you were young. How can you slander your Fourth Uncle’s reputation?”
Sheng Gu was stunned and said, “I don’t dare, grandmother. It was this slave girl who seduced Fourth Uncle… It is all her fault…”
The one who was shocked the most was Ji Xili.
She looked at Shu Nuan with a complex expression and thought of the scene when she’d hit Sheng Gu. Her mind was in turmoil. She couldn’t say why it was, but perhaps because she hadn’t expected Sheng Qianmo would set his heart on such a girl…
Ning Cheng Yuan told Sheng Gu to stop talking. He looked at Shu Nuan, and said, “You can speak now.”
Shu Nuan lowered her head and muttered, “It was the Fourth Prince who gave me the opportunity to take the academy’s entrance test, but I passed it on my own. Your Highness, you say I won his favor with skills in bed, but did you see me in bed with the Fourth Prince with your own eyes? If not, how did you draw your conclusion? Besides, if I go to the pharmacy to buy musk, does it have to mean I’m the one pregnant? Her Highness slandered me twice, but there was no evidence at all. Isn’t Her Highness in the wrong?”
Sheng Gu couldn’t help but grit her teeth. She yelled, “You’ve really spoken well! Shu Nuan, you spoke of the matters between a man and woman in front of the empress dowager. Do you still have any shame left?”
Shu Nuan gave her a cold gaze, and refuted, “Wasn’t it the princess who first said that I’ve good skills in bed?”
