Lord Chu’s Wife is Wild - Chapter 166
Matriarch Chu had never seen the Third Prince before and did not know what he looked like.
When she lived in the capital, the Third Prince had not been born yet, so when she first saw Lu Zhou walking over, she did not do anything.
However, she was curious about that unusual silver hair. As such, she couldn’t help but take a few more glances.
“Third… Third Prince!”
When Yu Linglong turned her head to see who it was, she hurriedly stood up and looked at this person with astonishment.
When these words were said, Matriarch Chu was momentarily shocked.
When Fu Xianyun heard his wife’s exclamation, he suddenly looked up. When he saw who it was, he was also a little surprised.
“Greetings, Third Prince!”
Mdm Chu and Matriarch Chu, who had just snapped back to their senses, hurriedly stood up and bowed slightly.
Lu Zhou waved his hand to signal them to take their seats.
Chu Sihan was relatively calm in the face of their shock.
He stood up and bowed slightly to Lu Zhou before taking a seat.
Lu Zhou had just sat down when Lu Sheng brought over his cutlery.
“Shenger, come and sit here.”
Lu Zhou pointed to his other side and gestured for Lu Sheng to take a seat.
“No, please sit down. I still have work to do.”
She could feel the tension at this table even from afar. She did not want to make herself uncomfortable here.
His “Shenger” made everyone except Chu Sihan stare at Lu Sheng’s back dumbfounded.
Fu Xianyun looked at Lu Sheng, who left, and then at Lu Zhou, not knowing what to ask.
“I wonder… what is the relationship between the Third Prince and Miss Lu?”
Mdm Chu suppressed her disbelief and asked Lu Zhou.
She really could not understand how a mere peasant girl like Lu Sheng knew such a high and mighty figure like the Third Prince.
One had to know that this was a person that even their Chu family couldn’t get close to!
Lu Zhou looked at her with feigned confusion.
Chu Sihan introduced, “This is my mother.”
“So, it’s Mdm Chu.”
Lu Zhou pretended to be enlightened and said with a faint smile, “Shenger is my only disciple. This girl is young and ignorant. If she does anything wrong in the future, I hope that Mdm Chu wouldn’t hold it against her for my sake.”
Mdm Chu’s heart sank.
How could she not tell that the Third Prince was warning her?
She was just complaining about Lu Sheng’s background when Lu Zhou came over and slapped her in the face.
Even though she rarely returned to the capital, she knew how much the Third Prince was doted on.
Not only did the Emperor dote on him, but even the Eldest Prince doted on this younger brother.
He remembered that when Dong Qiang Country’s Princess Liuyang and the Eldest Prince got married, Dong Qiang Country had sent an envoy to deliver congratulatory gifts. Among them was a pair of priceless Yueming Pearls.
At that time, in the royal court, the Third Prince had taken a fancy to this pair of Yueming Pearls and praised them.
Without another word, the Eldest Prince gifted this pair of Yueming Pearls to the Third Prince.
Although the envoy of Dong Qiang Country was dissatisfied, he could only praise the princes of Xue Yue Country to be truly close brothers.
There was even less of a need to talk about the Emperor. On the day the Third Prince was born, he was directly conferred the title of prince. He was even bestowed with servants, silk and satin, as well as a newly built mansion.
This was a great honor. After all, none of the princes had received such treatment when they were born.
Unfortunately, Concubine An had a short life. She passed away a few years after giving birth to the Third Prince.
The An family only had one daughter, Concubine An. Moreover, not long after Concubine An entered the palace, her parents passed away one after another due to illness. Thus, the huge family assets were directly inherited by Concubine An.
After Concubine An passed away from her illness, everyone in the palace coveted this huge fortune. The Empress and the Crown Prince even wanted to take over the An family’s assets.
Thus, they had privately mentioned to the Emperor that they wanted to raise the Third Prince.
