They only wanted to go home as soon as possible.
There were no more delays on the way.
They arrived at Anping County eleven days later.
Liu Zijin and Wang Huilan returned home.
As it was already late, they stayed in Anping County tonight.
When they came back, County Magistrate Wang was the happiest.
His son-in-law had passed the intermediate examination and Wang Huilan was pregnant.
It was a double blessing.
Su Chong, Su Hua, and Zhou Heng were all on the list.
They were on good terms with Liu Zijin and would be friends in the future, so County Magistrate Wang welcomed Su Xiaolu and the others warmly.
Liu Zijins mother was also present.
She was extremely gentle.
She held Wang Huilans hand and instructed her to take note of many things.
She even picked up a drumstick for Su Xiaolu.
After dinner, Su Xiaolu took the initiative to take Madam Lius pulse.
Liu Zijin was a little nervous.
“Xiaolu, is my mother alright”
Madam Liu smiled and said, “What could be wrong with me I ate and slept well.”
It was just that she had been a little worried during this period of time, but this was not an illness.
She would be fine when Liu Zijin and Wang Huilan returned.
Now that her son had passed the exam and his wife was pregnant, she was no longer sick.
Wang Huilan also looked at Su Xiaolu worriedly.
Su Xiaolu smiled and said, “Its nothing.
Shes just a little weak.
Just rest well.”
Madam Lius body was very deficient.
She wasnt seriously ill.
It was a disease that had accumulated over time.
This couldnt be recuperated well.
Madam Lius lifespan would be shorter than ordinary people, but there was no need to say this.
Only by relaxing ones mentality and living a positive life would ones health improve.
Madam Liu smiled and said, “I knew it.
Dont worry now.”
Liu Zijin smiled gently and did not say anything.
Her days were getting better and better now.
He really hoped that Madam Lius health would be good and she could enjoy his happiness.
Wang Huilan said to Su Xiaolu, “Xiaolu, please give my mother-in-law a nourishing prescription.”
Su Xiaolu nodded.
This was a small matter.
Madam Liu held Wang Huilans hand and patted it.
Her gaze was gentle.
This daughter-in-law of hers.
“Lanlan, dont worry about me.
You must rest well after the long journey.
Its been hard on you.”
Madam Liu looked at Wang Huilan gently.
Madam Lius concern warmed Wang Huilans heart.
She shook her head and said, “Granny, Im fine too.
Liu Zijins gentle gaze landed on Wang Huilan, and her eyes were filled with smiles.
Su Xiaolu packed her things and went down to rest.
They stayed in the princes mansion for the night and set off the next day after having breakfast.
Liu Zijin and County Magistrate Wang came out to send him off.
Liu Zijin patted Su Chong and Su Huas shoulders and said, “Ah Chong, Ah Hua, if youre engaged, you must send a letter to me.
Brother Heng too.
I must go to your wedding banquet.”
Su Chong and Su Hua were not young anymore.
It was time to get married.
When they returned this time, they would be in boundless glory.
Perhaps someone would settle the marriage.
Su Chong was a little embarrassed.
He nodded nonchalantly.
Su Hua smiled and nodded.
Zhou Heng was distracted for a moment.
He nodded gently.
After bidding farewell to Liu Zijin, the few of them drove the carriage back to Goathorn Town.
Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao anxiously counted the days.
When the good news came but the children had yet to return and they heard that there was a plague in Furongzhou, the couple could not sleep or eat in peace.
Su Xiaoling also copied the Buddhist scriptures for blessings over and over again, silently praying that Su Chong, Su Hua, Zhou Heng, and Su Xiaolu would return safely.
Lin Pingsheng would also ask Lin Yaoyao to come over every day to see if Su Chong, Su Hua, and Zhou Heng had returned.
It was already the 23rd of October today.
Su Xiaoling woke up early to prepare the food.
Then, she put away the copied Buddhist scriptures in the basket and left after informing Su Sanlang and Madam Zhao.
She wanted to take it to the temple and burn it.
As soon as she went out, she saw Madam Wang and Old Master Su bringing Su Dalang and Su Erlang over.
Su Xiaoling frowned and said, “Dont come.
My family doesnt welcome you.”
Ever since the good news seven days ago came with the possible bad news, Madam Wang had brought Su Dalang and Su Erlang here every day.
Today, even Old Master Su was here.
They had come to get Su Sanlang to return to the family clan.
They also wanted to adopt Su Shun as Su Sanlangs son.
Even though the real news had not been sent back, they were still certain that Su Chong, Su Hua, and the others were all dead.
Looking at these people, Su Xiaoling could not help but hate them.
Su Xiaoling wanted to stop her, but she was pushed to the side by Madam Wang.
Madam Wang spat in disgust.
“Wretched girl, get lost.
You have no right to speak in this house.”
Madam Wang was not so polite.
She pushed Su Xiaoling away and entered.
Su Dalang and Su Erlang also glared at Su Xiaoling.
Old Master Sus expression darkened as he looked at Su Xiaoling.
