The Princess Consort Has A Lethal Destiny - Chapter 745 - Can’t Tell the Difference
Throughout her trip, Yu Xian also thought the outside world was as free as when her parents were alive.
She… did not want to be a monkey or a bird in a cage, living a miserable life.
Her parents were gone, and her grandparents did not have any feelings for her. They just bullied her and wanted to take over the family business that her parents left behind…
She did not want the family business anymore, but it made no sense. She did not want to give herself away and let them take advantage of her.
“Cousin, why don’t I stay here? Brother Xie and the others treat me very well. You don’t have to worry,” Yu Xian said.
“No! W-What will happen if you stay here?!” Zhou Weizong was anxious.
Yu Xian frowned. “Cousin, since you can’t protect me completely, if I go back with you, I’ll be in the tiger’s mouth. I’ll be sending my own flesh and blood into someone else’s mouth for nothing! I’m older now, and I’ve been oppressed by them all these years. Now, I’ll never be that stifled fool again. It’s just too dumb!”
Zhou Weizong was stunned.
What stifled fool? The nonsense his cousin said… She must have learned it from Xie Pinggang!
Of course, Zhou Weizong did not know that his cousin had always been like this.
Yu Xian’s father was once a general of the Dong’an navy. She had followed her father to mingle among the soldiers since she was young, and her words inevitably carried a bit of manliness. It was only after her parents passed away that she was locked up in the courtyard for three years that she learned a little bit of manners.
However, her temperament could not be changed.
“Cousin, you guys are close friends, and you can take care of me. It really doesn’t matter if I stay here!” Yu Xian was very determined.
As for whether she wanted to marry or not, she did not care.
When Zhou Weizong saw her like this, he became anxious. He simply told the truth, “Brother Xie! Initially, I didn’t want to tell you much about this matter. Now that we’ve come to this, I can’t hide it from you anymore. The reason why I can’t let Yu Xian continue staying here with you is because… She’s not my cousin brother at all, but my cousin sister! Yu Xian is a woman. If she stays here for long, how can she get married in the future?!”
When he said that, Xie Pinggang burst into laughter.
“You’re too good at spewing nonsense. Can’t I tell the difference between a woman and a man?” Xie Pinggang rolled his eyes.
“You really can’t tell the difference, even I was almost fooled by her. She really is my real cousin sister! It’s just that… My uncle used to have a bad temper too. Maybe it’s because of his influence that my cousin has become so androgynous!” Zhou Weizong felt it was a pity.
She was a woman!
Xie Pinggang looked at Yu Xian suspiciously.
Yu Xian also sighed and said calmly, “What’s the difference between a man and a woman? My abilities have always been real. I’m competent in teaching Second Young Master Xie! I don’t even mind!”
Xie Pinggang nodded. “I… really don’t think it’s a problem.”
It was pretty good no matter if she was a man or a woman, right?!
It was just that he wanted her to teach martial arts, not to sleep with him. Why did he need to make such a clear distinction?
Zhou Weizong was dumbfounded. He stood up anxiously and stomped his feet. “No, no, no. How can a woman stay at your place? If word gets out, it will tarnish her reputation!”
Xie Pinggang knew that it would be terrible for him to keep her to himself.
“Cousin, my reputation has already been tarnished back in Dong’an. After my parents left, all the friends in my hometown think I’m incomparably vulgar as I learned martial arts from my father when I was young.. Everyone said that I was a hag, so my grandparents were going to betrothe me to an old man. Although I’m rude, it’s not to the extent of being matched with a person who is dying, right? And I heard that he had lost three wives! If my parents were alive, they’d rather have me being a martial arts instructor than suffer this pain!”
