Chapter 11: The main culprit
At this moment, the main culprit that had turned Chu Shao Yang’s wedding hall into this mess was currently taking Xiao Ru for a stroll in the back gardens.
Xiao Ru’s eyes shined like the stars and her mouth was wide open. Her face was filled with worship as she looked at Chen Ning.
The performance that young miss had just shown, it was as if she was a completely different person. She was so stunned that her eyes almost popped out.
It was too great!
“Silly girl. If you don’t close your mouth, be careful that birds don’t poop in it.” Chen Ning looked at her.
Xiao Ru suddenly closed her mouth.
“If there is anything you want to ask, then ask it now. There are no outsiders here.” Chen Ning swept across her surroundings.
Xiao Ru had just closed her mouth, but it fell down once again in shock.
She had actually wanted to ask the young miss a question, but before she could even open her mouth, the young miss had already guessed what she was thinking.
Was the young miss the little bug in her stomach? She silently whispered in her heart.
“Silly girl, the expression on your face tells me everything.” Chen Ning asked her again, once again guessing what was in her heart. She smiled and said, “What you want to ask me, should be how I knew Chen Bi Yun was pregnant right?”
Xiao Ru’s mouth was already as wide as it could as her eyes stared wide.
Could the eyes of the young miss see through people’s hearts? What she was thinking, the young miss could see it all with a single glance.
“Shh, stop being so excited. Chen Bi Yun being pregnant, anyone with eyes could see in a single glance.”
Hearing this, Xiao Ru’s little face fell.
Was young miss saying that she didn’t have eyes?
Seeing Xiao Ru’s crying face, Chen Ning realized her own slip of the mouth and quickly went to comfort her, “I wasn’t talking about you. I was saying that idiot Chu Shao Yang didn’t have any eyes.”
“But, but young miss, since this servant couldn’t see through second miss, her that…….What about that?” Xiao Ru’s face turned red as she slowly said this one sentence.
“What about that?” Chen Ning deliberately teased her.
“It’s, it’s…..that!” Xiao Ru anxiously stomped her foot as her face turned red. She was embarrassed to say the word “pregnant”.
She remembered it very clearly, the dress second miss wore was very form fitting. Her waist was very tight, it did not seem like the waist of a pregnant person.
Chen Ning pinched the small, embarrassed face with a smile. She smiled and said, “Alright, I won’t tease you anymore. Do you remember what Chen Bi Yun looked like when she gave me the tea in the hall?”
“Of course I remember it. This servant was afraid second young miss would play a trick so I wanted to tell young miss to be careful. I never would have thought that young miss would be nice to her and even remind her of the water on the floor.” Xiao Ru indignantly said.
“She definitely wanted to play a trick, but of course I wouldn’t give her that chance.” Chen Ning smiled and then said, “As for reminding her of the water on the ground, of course I’m not that nice. Do you remember after I reminded her, what she did?”
Xiao Ru tried remembering for a bit and then said, “Second young miss seemed to instantly step back, then servants came over to dry the floor.”
She remembered complaining in her heart about her young miss. Why did she remind Chen Bi Yun? Wouldn’t it be better to let her fall down on the floor?
“That’s wrong.” Chen Ning corrected her, “When she backed up, the first thing she did was cover up her lower abdomen with her right hand. Then she took a step back.”
“But why did second young miss first cover her lower abdomen first?” Xiao Ru distractedly asked.
“That’s a good question!” Chen Ning smiled and said, “That is the key to the problem.”
