Chapter 699 – The grieving Li family (6)

Li Aoqiong, who was pretending to be an ostrich, waited until after all of them had left. Only then did he return to the Li family’s home in the imperial capital while carrying Li Yaoxiang on his back.

After he returned, Li Aoqiong decided it was an important matter that must be kept secret and would not say a single word.

Li Yaoxiang was even more eager to treat that day’s matter as garbage to be expunged. Naturally, he would not bring it up again.

Even if they did not want to mention it, but others could not help it.

How could Beichen Ying and that group of lively children be capable of enduring the silence in order to keep this secret?

After they returned, not only did they spread it, but they also helped to publicize the Li family’s secret without restraint!

The most important point was to publicize Li Yaoxiang’s being completely empty in that place.

For a period of time, almost the entire imperial capital had flared up.

Li Yaoxiang, that was Jade Lake’s Li family’s Second Master, whose existence was so high up. who would have imagined he was actually…..

“Oh, heavens. Did you know? Jade Lake’s Li family’s Second Master is actually… Hey, I’ll just only tell you, you better not tell anyone else.”

“That’s right, that’s right. Did you know? Jade Lake’s Li family’s Second Master is actually… Hey, I’ll just tell you alone, you must never tell it to anyone else.”

“Unexpectedly, the man in the Jade Lake’s Li family is an eunuch. I’ve heard that place really wasn’t capable… Hey, I’ll just tell you alone, don’t spread it around.”

“Have you heard it yet? It’s being said that the Jade Lake’s Li family’s next generation are not their biological children. They were adopted because that Master is an eunuch and can’t have kids. Hey, I’ll just tell you alone, don’t spread it around.”

“Hey, I’ll just tell you alone, don’t spread it around…”

Everyone warned others not to talk about it, but they themselves had their own friends and family. How could this sort of world-shaking gossip be kept inside? If they did not talk about it, their whole body would feel uncomfortable.

Hence, everyone all stated not to tell anyone else, yet they themselves would secretly tell others.

This kind of gossip was like a rolling snowball – the more it rolled, the bigger it became. In less than an afternoon’s effort, it was completely well-known by everyone in the imperial capital, even the food market’s expert, the raggedly-clothed beggars, the unskilled laborers on the dock…..

The oldest being a seventy-year-old elderly woman and the youngest was a three-year-old child. Everyone knew the Second Master in the Jade Lake’s Li family, Li Yaoxiang, was actually a damned eunuch!!!

When the Jade Lake’s Li family returned to their senses, they were already powerless to reverse this desperate situation.

They were so furious, they nearly passed out.

Flustered and exasperated, the Jade Lake’s Li family went to find Emperor Jing and requested him to issue an imperial edict to deal with these gossipers.

However, the always remote and aloof Jade Lake’s Li family, had quite clearly always used prestige to intimidate those beneath them. To deal with these sorts of gossiping matters, clearly in the area of public relations, it seemed they were rather incapable. They only knew how to use military force to suppress.

However, this sort of gossip-like rumours and slanders, the more it was repressed, the more it would rebound. After all, the mouths were grown on the bodies of others.

Emperor Jing also wanted to help, but he was also less than capable to deal with it.

Because fellow countrymen’s love for gossip was rooted in their innate nature. How could this be changed by an imperial edict?

The sages had already said it before, rumours could only be stopped by a wise man, forceful methods will not be able to stop it.

Consequently, the more the imperial court tried to stop it, the crazier the populace’s secret discussions on this became.

First, it was spread around that Li Yaoxiang was a damn eunuch, after being passed around, it became Li Yaoxiang had an adulterous relationship with his sister-in-law. Consequently, he was castrated by Jade Lake’s number one Master. Until later it emerged with the conclusion that Li Aoqiong, Li Yaoyao, and so on, were not given birth by the Jade Lake’s number one Master…

The populace’s craving for gossip, was like a raging flame.

Of course, among these, naturally, Beichen Ying and friends could not be left out in adding fuel to the fire.

Seeing a servant come holding the report about the latest rumor, Beichen Ying covered his belly and rolled about on his bed.

    To keep a secret never let it leave your mouth, the moment it leaves the mouth it’s not a secret anymore. Beside if you don’t want something to spread then don’t do something for people to talk about!!!
    Bad new travels faster than good new!!!

    I read a story somewhere about a king from old times who wanted to spread a piece of news as far as possible and as fast as possible, and was stumped on how to accomplish that, so he sought advice from his wise and trusted minister.
    The minister replied: “If this is what you want, then the matter is simple. Please leave it to me!”
    The king was stunned, yet he trusted his minister greatly, and so he waited curiously to see what the minister will do.
    The minister called over a palace maid who happened to pass by, and then whispered some words into her ear. The maid nodded vigorously, and then quickly left. The minister then simply told the king to wait half a day, and then send someone into town to confirm how far the news had spread.
    The king was puzzled, only half a day? How for would a piece of news spread in only half a day? But since the king trusted his minister, and still did as he said.
    After half a day, the king sent people to confirm the situation, and when they returned, he was amazed to hear that the news had already spread very far and wide…
    So, he called the minister over and asked him how he managed to accomplish this? What exactly did he say to the maid? Did he tell anyone else?
    The minister simply replied: “Your Majesty, I only told that one single maid, and I only told her the piece of news you wish to spread.”
    The king was even more confused and puzzled now, “then how exactly did you manage making the news spread. This far and wide?”
    The minister replied: “I only added one more sentence to her.”
    The king asked, unable to hold his curiosity back: “Which is?”
    The minister replied with a slight smile: “I just told her, ‘never, ever tell this news to anyone’.”

  15. thanks!

    “Hey, I’ll just tell you alone, don’t spread it around…”
