328 The Result Is Ou
“Maybe my granddaughter truly was drugged.”
Lady Murong immediately made the decision. “Alright, let’s examine your body. If you’re incomplete, we’ll ask him to take responsibility, but you must think twice before you make any decision. There will be no turning back.”
After a long hesitation, Nan Ningxin said solemnly, “My reputation has been ruined with or without the examination.”
“That does make sense. Let’s do it then.”
Lady Murong asked Gu Bailu, “Let’s invite a midwife to examine her. Will you get one, or do you want me to?”
Gu Bailu nodded her head. “Any midwife in your house will be fine.”
Gu Bailu allowed Lady Murong to use her own midwife because it would make Nan Ningxin think that her trick had worked.
Lady Murong was very satisfied with her attitude. She immediately summoned her most capable midwife and asked her to take Nan Ningxin to a room.
Gu Bailu sat down and enjoyed the tea, and Lady Murong simply stared at her without saying anything.
“My lady, are you angry that someone like me stole your grandson-in-law?” Gu Bailu asked.
Lady Murong snorted. “I don’t think you’re as simple as you look.”
She didn’t think that a good-for-nothing loser would be able to captivate Prince Zi.
She was certain that Gu Bailu would’ve been killed a long time ago if she were really useless.
Gu Bailu smiled. “Lady Murong, you can see through me, but you can’t see through your granddaughter?”
Lady Murong pulled a long face. “What do you mean?”
“Do you really think Murong Lanyi eloped with someone?”
Lady Murong’s face changed greatly. “Why do you know about Lanyi?”
The scandal of the Murong family had been kept a secret all this time. Nobody knew that Lanyi had gone missing. They thought that she had gone out traveling.
“How can I not know? I even know where her body is buried.”
“What? Lanyi is dead? That’s impossible!” Lady Murong slapped her hand on the table and stood up. “Don’t think that you can make things up just because you’re Princess Zi.”
Gu Bailu shrugged. “If you don’t believe me, there’s nothing I can do, but I need to remind you that your granddaughter is not as innocent as she appears. If you’re interested, you can ask Murong Huangtang about Murong Lanyi.”
Lady Murong snorted. “You’re just slandering Ningxin because you’re afraid that she’ll steal your position, right?”
“She failed to obtain it after years of work, what’s there for me to be afraid of? Just forget what you heard if you don’t believe me.”
Gu Bailu focused on the tea and stopped talking.
After all, to be the leader of a big family, Lady Murong couldn’t be a fool, and she would definitely investigate the matter if she grew suspicious.
If she couldn’t find any clues that Murong Lanyi had eloped, she would certainly believe Gu Bailu.
In that regard, Gu Bailu believed that Lady Murong was more reliable than Murong Huangtang.
She had followed Nan Ningxin back to the Murong family house precisely to talk to Lady Murong.
Otherwise, she would’ve already ended Nan Ningxin back in Prince Zi’s house.
Very soon, the midwife returned with Nan Ningxin, an awful look on her face.
Nan Ningxin had changed into another red dress, which made her look like a pink lotus flower blooming at the beginning of summer. The midwife walked to Lady Murong and whispered something to her, and Lady Murong sighed. “Princess Zi, it seems that you do owe me an explanation.”
