Venomous Empress Reborn - Chapter 670 - 670 Going to Prison (3)
670 Going to Prison (3)
The commoners passing by the Shen mansion would point at it and gossip. As they spoke, they talked about the mighty general, Shen Xin. Two years ago, Shen Xin insisted on splitting up with the Shen family. Later, they removed Shen Xin’s name from the family genealogy. Unexpectedly, it was a blessing in disguise for Shen Xin and his family.
When Shen Miao heard this, she only smiled indifferently. Luo Tan clenched her fists and said angrily, “They deserve it. Back then, they humiliated First Uncle and Aunt. If they knew that the first branch was unscathed, they would probably be boiling with anger.”
Luo Ling thought for a moment and shook his head. “What crime did Third Master Shen commit to deserve such a severe punishment?”
Shen Miao said, “It’s rare to see His Majesty so angry. I guess he must have done something atrocious. Anyway, it has nothing to do with us.”
Luo Tan nodded. “That’s right. Then let’s wait and see.”
Shen Qiu looked at Shen Miao with a worried expression and wanted to say something but hesitated. After Luo Ling and Luo Tan left, Shen Qiu did not leave. He pulled Shen Miao into the room. After locking the door, he asked Shen Miao, “Sister, did you do it?”
Shen Miao didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. “Brother, why are you blaming me for everything? I don’t have the ability to tell His Majesty what to do.”
Shen Qiu rubbed his forehead in frustration and said, “Sister, I know that there are some things you don’t want to tell me. However, things in the imperial court are not as simple as you think. Sometimes, it looks like you’ll win, but a sudden turn of events will pull into the abyss…”
After he rambled on, Shen Miao said helplessly, “Brother, to be honest, this has nothing to do with me. Shen Wan was imprisoned because Chen Ruoqiu stabbed him in the back. Back then, Chen Ruoqiu and Shen Wan had an ugly fallout. Do you think Chen Ruoqiu will let it go?”
This time, it was Shen Qiu’s turn to be surprised. He asked, “Chen Ruoqiu?”
“Chen Ruoqiu has lived with Shen Wan for so many years and knows everything about Shen Wan. It’s easier for her to stab Shen Wan in the back than for others.” Shen Miao said, “Shen Wan was harmed by his wife and got the entire Shen family in trouble. What does it have to do with me?”
When Shen Qiu heard that, he thought for a moment before looking at Shen Miao suspiciously. “How do you know so much about this?”
“I can’t wait to see them suffer, so I planted some people in the Shen mansion to monitor their every move.”
“It’s too much of a coincidence…” Shen Qiu widened his eyes and looked a little comical. “Sister, are you the one fanning the flames?”
Shen Miao smiled. “Brother, think whatever you want. All I can say is that I’m not in the slightest bit involved in any of these.”
Shen Qiu looked like he was blown away. “Why are you so bold? If you…”
Shen Miao interrupted him. “Brother, when did you become so wishy-washy? It’s just a small matter. The Shen family deserves it for falling into such a state. If Shen Wan didn’t divorce Chen Ruoqiu, why would Chen Ruoqiu stab him in the back?”
Shen Qiu was dumbfounded by Shen Miao’s words and attitude. It was not until he was sent out of the courtyard by Shen Miao’s maid that Shen Qiu came back to his senses. He suddenly slapped his forehead. Shen Miao was clearly dodging his question. He did not know where she learned this trick. She was bold enough to use the officials of the imperial court as her chess piece, but she made it sound like she was extremely innocent. Shen Qiu was surprised. When did Shen Miao learn to lie without changing expressions?
