“Back then, you were left outside because of your father’s negligence. It wasn’t easy to find you back, but you suffered in the general’s residence. Those Ning family members who took you in are people your father should thank. Not to mention Erlang, it’s only right to take care of everyone in the Ning family.”

“Besides, Yueyue, Grandmother is about to return to the General’s Residence. Don’t you plan to leave your cousin and second brother in the General’s Residence to accompany Grandmother?” An Ning said with a smile.

Hearing An Ning’s words, Ning Yue couldn’t help but want to cry. “Thank you, Grandmother, for doing so much for me.”

“I didn’t do it for you. That old woman has done so many things to hurt me. Shouldn’t I do something? Since I want revenge, returning to the General’s Residence is what I should do. Yueyue, Grandmother will look for you after a while, okay?”

Hearing An Ning’s words, Ning Yue nodded desperately. “Okay!”

“Yueyue, be good. When you leave for Laifu Village, I’ll have to return to the General’s Residence too,” said An Ning.

“Grandmother, let’s send you back first before leaving for Laifu Village,” Ning Yue said.

An Ning rejected Ning Yue’s kindness. “No, returning to the general’s residence is my business alone. How can I implicate you? You have to take good care of the two babies. I don’t want to find out that they’ve lost weight when I visit you later.”

“Grandmother, I…” Ning Yue was about to say something when she was interrupted by An Ning.

She looked at Jiang Ying and asked, “Young Master Jiang, can I trouble you with something?”

“Please speak,” Jiang Ying said.

“I want to trouble Prince Jiang to help me take care of Ning Yue. It’s been hard on her. I also want to find a man who likes her, takes care of her, and shelters her,” An Ning said.

Through their interactions over the past few days, she could tell that Jiang Yue probably liked Ning Yue. He also had the strength and capital.

Hearing An Ning’s words, Jiang Ying was overjoyed. He happily promised her, “Grandmother, don’t worry. I’ll definitely do my best to take good care of Yueyue.”

After receiving Jiang Ying’s assurance, a relieved smile appeared on An Ning’s face.

“Grandmother, I’ll take care of myself. I don’t need any men.” Ning Yue blushed when she heard that her grandmother had sold her off without warning.

“Alright, there’s nothing else. You two take your time chatting. I’ll go out and prepare first.” An Ning smiled and left the living room.

After what An Ning had said, Ning Yue was no longer in the mood to chat.

It wasn’t that she wasn’t in the mood. She just felt embarrassed.

She and Jiang Ying shouldn’t have reached that stage yet, right?

Just as she was about to tell Jiang Ying that she was leaving, he grabbed her hand.

“Let me follow you. I want to be by your side, your knife and sword. I’ll cut whoever you want me to. I’ll stab whoever you want me to stab.”

Jiang Ying’s words touched Ning Yue.

He knew in his heart that Ning Yue was not a woman who was willing to hide behind a man. She was more willing to use her own hands to start a good future.

Hearing Jiang Ying’s words, Ning Yue couldn’t help but laugh.

“You know the assessment, right? Just like how everyone has to pass the village examination before they can become the top scholar, you’re still in the assessment stage. If I think you’re suitable after the assessment, you can stay,” Ning Yue said.

“No matter what dangers and difficulties there are ahead, I’m willing to accept your assessment. Moreover, I’ll definitely complete the assessment. Only I can stand by your side.”

Hearing Jiang Ying’s words, Ning Yue’s face turned even redder. It was as if Jiang Ying was by her side no matter what happened. Moreover, even when she did bad things, Jiang Ying was with her.

From the preliminary look of it, Jiang Ying was still considered passable, but…

Who knew? They could worry about that later. Right now, the most important thing was to pack their bags. They were ready to return to Laifu village.

This was because if the Prince of Qi and Prince Ning rebelled, they would definitely pass through Prince Jin’s territory. She was worried about the people from the Ning Family Village.

Jiang Ying couldn’t stay in the capital forever. If there was really a war, he had to rush to the front lines.

At the thought of this, Ning Yue simply went to look for Gu Yu and asked about the emperor.

When he heard that the emperor had recovered and there was no need for them to stay, they immediately decided to return to Laifu Village the next day.

“Alright, I was about to tell you about this too. I heard something bad from the emperor, so we have to rush back.” Gu Yu said.
