Finally, Yan Chen realized that something was wrong as she was getting skinnier and skinnier. He asked her the reason behind it, but Little Fox did not want to say bad things about his mother. Otherwise, people would think that she was trying to drive a wedge between the mother and son. She was also worried that she would distract Yan Chen's attention, so she just shook her head and claimed that she was feeling unwell.
Meanwhile, Yan Chen's mother was also concerned about Little Fox's health. When she saw that she was getting thinner, she quickly ordered her servant to cook the best supplements to help Little Fox recover. There were several times when she cooked the soup and sent it to Lan Waihu in front of Yan Chen. Her actions touched Yan Chen's heart a lot.
He thought that Lan Waihu was feeling unwell so he decided to bring her out to relax. He traveled for a few days with her and managed to help her become more energized.
However, because of this, Yan Chen's practice was delayed for a few days, and so they were scolded by Yan Chen's father!
Yan Chen's mother secretly nagged Lan Waihu as she deemed Little Fox as the culprit. She almost pointed to Little Fox's nose and blamed her as the vixen that caused Yan Chen to be unable to practice correctly.
Little Fox always thought that she was being scolded because she was not progressing well enough. She tried very hard to improve herself. However,she finally realized after a while that regardless of how hard she tried, she would never be good enough for Yan Chen's mother. Mainly, it was because his mother had always despised her all this while! The only reason she allowed Little Fox to stay in the house was mainly to please Yan Chen.
Yan Chen's mother had never intended to allow Little Fox to be Yan Chen's wife. Everything she did was intended to make Little Fox feel bad and hopefully give up the idea of marrying Yan Chen. She wanted to force her to leave Yan Chen.
Little Fox finally understood her intentions after she had suffered for three months in Yan Chen's house ever since the arrival of Leng Wushuang.
Leng Wushuang had a good family background. The Leng family had been a prominent family for centuries, and Leng Wushuang was the favorite daughter of the Leng family. She was pretty and had good personalities. She looked elegant and demure, and her movements were very ladylike.
The Leng family had been close to the Yan family for many generations. Furthermore, the master of the Leng family was the best buddy of Yan Chen's father. Even before both Leng Wushuang and Yan Chen were born, both of their parents had jokingly said that if they both had sons or daughters, they would make them take an oath of brotherhood or sisterhood. However, if one of them had a son and another one had a daughter, they would form an in-law family.
Of course, it was just a joke, and they forgot about it in due time.
Later on, the Leng family moved somewhere far away, and the relationship between both of the families grew further apart. They had not contacted each other for many years.
However, the Leng family had moved back this time around. The lady master of the Leng family always brought her daughter, Leng Wushuang, to visit the Yan family. Though Leng Wushuang was about the same age as Little Fox, she could sing and dance very well. She was also good at talking and was well behaved. Therefore, Yan Chen's mother liked her a lot. What defined her, even more, was the fact that Leng Wushuang was said to have come from the Blue Fox family lineage!
The grandmother of Leng Wushuang was once the servant to the king of the Blue Fox family.
As the king of the Blue Fox owed the grandfather of Leng Wushuang a favor, he betrothed his servant to her grandfather. Soon after that, they had a daughter, who was the mother of Leng Wushuang.
The Blue Fox family was of noble descent, and so those who had even a little lineage of the Blue Fox family was usually envied. It was said that if an ordinary man were to marry a girl with the Blue Fox family lineage, it would help them to improve their external ability. It was even better than marrying an alchemy furnace!
It was said that the grandfather of Leng Wushuang used to be just an ordinary man. However, after he married the servant, his spiritual power improved from level five to level eight in only three years. It became a legendary story that was shared throughout that generation.
According to the legend, anyone who had the Blue Fox family lineage would secretly receive the protection of the Blue Fox family. The family would become prosperous, and their lifestyle would get better and better.
