at in terror: “I’m sorry.”

“Old Madam.” With a few tall and strong family servants helping clear a way through the crowd for him, Shen Qi—Jiang Yue’s husband and the Ningguo Gongfu’s second young master—squeezed into the center.
Shen Qi’s leg had a deformity, so he had a rather tough time limping his way in, and his face was covered in sweat.

“Why are you here?” Old Madam Xu felt rather sorry for her second son’s son-in-law.

“Old Madam, you’re fine, right?” The moment Shen Qi arrived, he first asked whether the old madam was fine.

“Aiyo,” the old madam immediately prepared to once again cry to the heavens and yell to the earth.
She could not let this little rascal from the Wei family get off so easily.
Did this little rascal think she did not know that he was her grandsons’ greatest foe at the Imperial College? Every single time her grandsons got lectured and punished by the teachers at the Imperial College, it was due to a matter which was incited by this third son of the Wei family.

Yet Jiang Mingyue reached out with her hand and tugged on the old madam, shaking her head at the latter.

The old madam said in discontent, “Just let it go like this?”

“Let’s follow Brother-in-Law’s decision,” Jiang Mingyue whispered.

Jiang Ruqiu was not in the capital, their old master was not present, and Jiang Yu and Jiang Xian were still too young to represent the family.
However, Shen Qi had hurried over at this time; this brother-in-law of hers was sticking his neck out for the Jiangs.
This was good.
He was someone they knew.

Shen Qi shot a very swift glance at Jiang Mingyue.
This sister-in-law of his was normally someone who was not charming but rather a strong-minded person who fought with sharp stabs.
He never imagined that she would actually be so sensible today.

“Kneel!” Old Mr Su chided Wei Ziting at this very moment.

While Wei Ziting was still hesitating, Old Mr Su gave him a kick behind the kneecaps, essentially kicking him into a kneeling position on the ground.

“Kowtow to the old madam and apologise,” Old Venerable Su hurriedly ordered Wei Ziting.

Since today’s matter had already gotten to this point, inviting Wei Xiangfu’s old matriarch over would just make things worse.
Both Wei Xiangfu’s old matriarch and Old Madam Xu were elders, so they could not say who was older or that they were being startled and tired out by the younger party.
This meant Wei Xiangfu’s old matriarch had no way to compete with Old Madam Xu.
Unlike Old Madam Xu, the old matriarch of Wei Xiangfu was unable to risk everything to win this fight.
So what could Old Venerable Su do? He could only get Wei Ziting to apologise until Old Madam Xu was satisfied.

Old Venerable Su was actually throwing caution to the wind at this time.
‘In any case, Old Madam Xu, you can’t demand for the life of the Weis’ third son right here on the street, right?’

“I can’t accept it.” Old Madam Xu gave a supercilious look.

“Grandmother,” Shen Qi quietly called out to Old Madam Xu.

“Brother-in-Law, you should wrap things up here,” Jiang Mingyue stated.
Then she tugged on her family’s old madam and said, “Grandma, let’s go wait in the carriage.
With Brother-in-Law here, the Weis’ Third Young Master won’t dare to do anything to our eldest son anymore.”

The corner of Brother-in-Law Shen’s mouth twitched.

Everyone: “…”

‘Second Miss, your Jiang family really did not suffer much losses.
You can’t even let the Weis’ Third Young Master off upon your departure?’ When the surrounding crowd saw this, they all sympathised with the Weis’ Third Young Master.
‘Just how many basins of poop were dumped on his head in this short period of time?’
