When maid explained her purpose for coming here, Gu Xiaoran was slightly surprised, but she still had a very happy expression on her face. "You're saying that Second Madame wants to give me some food?"

Look at you, looking as if you've never eaten your fill, what a pity. Looking at Gu Xiaoran's expression, maid did not notice the slightest bit of change and was full of contempt for her.

At the same time, she felt a tinge of sympathy for Mei Qing. It was really pitiful to follow such a master. She probably didn't even have a single bounty on him.

However, this feeling disappeared in an instant. maid didn't have the slightest bit of respect on her face, and her tone held a hint of contempt. "That's right, Second Wife said that she had matters to attend to today, so she rushed to use the carriage. I'm really sorry for having the second miss walk back from the palace."

"Second Wife specifically ordered the kitchen to cook a few more dishes for Second Miss since she wanted to compensate Second Miss."

Mei Qing, who was standing at the side, gritted her teeth. Walking back from the palace? So how many dishes did he make for the compensation?

Even if he had come back from the palace in a carriage, it would still have taken him an hour. Now she was forced to walk back from the palace. Wasn't this bullying!?

Before Mei Qing could say anything, the servants had already brought the so-called "compensatory" dishes over and placed them on the table in Gu Xiaoran's room. They looked like they were about to apologize.

The food was more sumptuous than usual, but Mei Qing preferred not to have it.

"The two of you are really too …" He was bullying her! Gu Xiaoran interrupted her before she could finish her sentence. She feigned surprise as she looked at the dishes on the table and pulled Mei Qing to her seat. "Mei Qing, the food today is too great. Are you hungry? Sit down and eat together with me."

The servants in the room, who had yet to leave, were looking down on Gu Xiaoran for her hungry ghost look. At the same time, they were envious of Mei Qing for being able to sit at the same table as their master and eat.

However, it didn't take long before they tossed aside their own thoughts. What was there to envy about eating with such a master? She had suffered a lot after following such a master, but when she thought about it, Mei Qing's daily life was much worse than theirs.

Gradually regaining a sense of balance in their hearts, the servants no longer said anything and retreated. When Mei Qing and Gu Xiaoran were the only ones left in the room, Gu Xiaoran motioned for Mei Qing to close the door.

"Miss, they are clearly bullying us, why would they endure this humiliation!" Mei Qing, who had closed the door, sat in front of Gu Xiaoran with anger written all over her face. "This servant looks at Second Wife on purpose. If she's really in a hurry, she can use her own carriage in the mansion. Why did she run to the palace and ask for Miss's carriage?"

"Two hours to go back and forth. Is this how she was in a hurry to use the carriage?"

This lie was not accurate at all and was extremely perfunctory the moment she heard it. It was no wonder that Mei Qing would be so angry.

On the other hand, Gu Xiaoran acted as if nothing had happened. Listening to Mei Qing's angry words, the corner of her mouth slightly raised, "It's my honor to have maid, who thinks for my sake, by my side."

Mei Qing's anger dissipated when she heard Gu Xiaoran's words, and her eyes turned red. "Miss …"

For a moment, Mei Qing didn't know what to say. Her eyes were red as she looked at Gu Xiaoran. Tears welled up in her eyes. She was touched, because Gu Xiaoran's words affirmed the value of her existence.

At the same time, she felt guilty for not being able to help her master even after her master was bullied to such an extent.

Gu Xiaoran's heart was moved as well. She looked at Mei Qing with a bitter smile, "Look at you, your tears are about to fall. Hurry up and wipe them away."

Mei Qing burst into laughter as tears fell from her eyes. She hurriedly wiped her tears away and looked towards Gu Xiaoran with a smile. "Miss likes me so much. In the future, wherever Miss goes, servant will follow."

"Miss, you're not allowed to abandon Mei Qing."

Gu Xiaoran didn't say anything, but nodded her head resolutely. No matter what, she would definitely let Mei Qing live a good life with him in the future.

Seeing her young miss' response, Mei Qing finally smiled. She took the chopsticks from the table and handed them over to Gu Xiaoran. "My lady must be hungry. Eat quickly, otherwise the food will get cold."

At this point, Mei Qing couldn't help but twitch her mouth, as if the dishes on the table were Second Wife. She viciously said, "We must eat all of these dishes, drink their blood and eat their meat!"

Gu Xiaoran couldn't help but laugh, but she stopped Mei Qing's movements and lowered her voice, "Not only can we not eat all of these dishes, we can't even touch them."

This time, Mei Qing was a little stupefied. "Miss, why can't we eat these dishes?" If they treat you like this, even if they eat up all these food, they will still let us down. "

Gu Xiaoran saw that not a drop of the juice had spilled on the table. Everything seemed normal, but in her mind, this was the most abnormal image.

Fully aware of Mei Qing's doubt, Gu Xiaoran pointed at the dishes on the table, "Don't tell me you don't find it strange?" "Although servants usually bring in food, they always pass it to us directly."

"Even if they were to bring it in, they would just casually place it on the table. How could it be like this? It's so perfectly placed that even the juice doesn't come out. Don't you think it's strange?"

With that said, Mei Qing actually noticed it. She looked at the dishes on the table in surprise. "It really is like that. Usually when they bring the dishes in, they just want to throw them onto the table. Why are you so impatient today?"

"Miss, could it be that they're acting like this because the food was given by Second Wife?"

Mei Qing nodded her head and looked in Gu Xiaoran's direction. However, she noticed that Gu Xiaoran had a serious expression on her face, as if she was considering the real reason behind all of this.

"Let's not talk about the problems with the dishes first. Do you really think it's possible for Second Wife to apologize to me based on her character?"

Seemingly sensing the severity of the problem, Mei Qing's brows were knitted tightly. After considering it in her heart for a while, Mei Qing's face was filled with fear. She suppressed her voice to an extremely low pitch, "Miss, they wouldn't be trying to kill us to keep our mouths shut, right?"

It had to be said that Mei Qing was an extremely intelligent maid. Although she was usually a bit carefree, she still had some care and attention towards girls.

Now that she thought about it carefully, it was exactly what Gu Xiaoran thought in her heart. Gu Xiaoran didn't say anything. She looked at Mei Qing, who was standing in front of her, and didn't know what to say.

Mei Qing was a good girl, so it was really unfair for her to be by her side. The future was still long, and she had no idea what dangers lay ahead. If Mei Qing stayed by her side, she was destined to face these hardships together with her.

However, she didn't have the qualifications to decide her future life for Mei Qing.

Once again, her expression returned to indifference, but it was filled with an unprecedented seriousness and seriousness. Gu Xiaoran looked at Mei Qing in front of her and said word by word, "What if I say yes?"

Mei Qing, who was sitting on the opposite end of the table, was obviously startled. She stood up from her stool. "Young, young miss …"

Mei Qing was afraid, Gu Xiaoran thought. He was afraid that his words would come true, and that he would not end up well in the future. However, if he wanted to follow her, he needed not only loyalty, but courage and stability.

"Are you afraid?" Gu Xiaoran looked at Mei Qing, who was standing in front of her. Gu Xiaoran looked at Mei Qing, who was standing in front of her, but she asked every single word of hers.

In her heart, she was actually even more conflicted than Mei Qing. She wanted Mei Qing to stay by her side, but she was worried that something unexpected, such as death, would happen when Mei Qing was with her in the future.

Mei Qing didn't know what was on Gu Xiaoran's mind. After hearing Gu Xiaoran's words, she was also silent for a long time. However, she wasn't silent because she was afraid, but because her young lady seemed to have changed.

In the past, the Miss would never say something like this today, where she would easily say things like "silence after killing" without the slightest change.

Yes, that terrible illness. Was it because of that terrible illness that made Miss think clearly?

"This servant is willing to stay by Miss's side, no matter what happens!" Thinking of this, Mei Qing immediately stood up from her seat and knelt in front of Gu Xiaoran with firm words.

Gu Xiaoran didn't think that Mei Qing didn't know what it meant to be by her side. However, the matter was far more complicated than Mei Qing had imagined, because she was destined to become Shu Jinghan's enemy in her entire life.

"Mei Qing, I hope you can figure it out before you answer me, because things are far more complicated than you can imagine. If you were to follow by my side, even the slightest bit of carelessness would cause you to lose your life. "

Her words were very clear. Mei Qing didn't know why she was so sure, but she could understand what these consequences meant.

Mei Qing didn't stop for long. She looked at Gu Xiaoran with a serious expression and said, "Miss, there's no need to say anything. Mei Qing knows." Regardless of life or death, Mei Qing is willing to follow by Miss's side. As long as Miss doesn't mind Mei Qing's stupidity, Mei Qing is willing to do anything. "

What kind of ability did she have to make Mei Qing, who was standing in front of her, so dead set on him?

Gu Xiaoran's heart was greatly moved. She used both hands to help Mei Qing, who was kneeling in front of her, up. "Mei Qing, as long as you don't let me down, even half of my meat will be eaten by you."

She couldn't let the people around her watch her eat meat while others drank soup. As a person, the most important thing was to face each other with one's heart. Gu Xiaoran firmly believed that this would allow her to go further on this path.

"Thank you, Miss!" Mei Qing nodded. She did not doubt the authenticity of Gu Xiaoran's words. Because all these years, she knew best what sort of person Gu Xiaoran was.

Even though her life had been tough, Gu Xiaoran had never treated her badly. Sometimes, even Gu Xiaoran herself couldn't fill her stomach, but she never let maid starve to death.

What reason did she have not to believe Gu Xiaoran?

The master-servant duo, who had revealed their feelings to each other, looked at each other and smiled even more intimately than before. They both looked at the dishes on the table. After exchanging glances, they had already decided on how to handle the dishes.

Outside the room a figure flashed past the room as he heard the sound of burping and smacking.

On the other side, Zhan Chuyan also encountered an unprecedented problem.
