Qin Zening pursed his lips mockingly.
He didnt care whether Qin Xin went to the second branch or not.
He was already eighteen.
Sooner or later, he would be able to leave the family and live alone! He was fine as long as Qin Xin wasnt under his parents name!
Qin Xins eyelashes trembled a little as she looked at Qin Zhun.
She was tempted.
Second Uncle is a Marquis.
And with my name recorded under Second Uncle, I will be a noble rightfully.
Even Qin Guis wont be as noble as me!
“I guess, thats okay.” Madam Qin nodded, again and again.
“Qin Zhun, lets put Xiners name under yours.
Lets say that your wife gave birth to her in exile!”
“Mother, this doesnt seem right!” Marchioness Su hesitantly said hesitatingly, “Im afraid no one will believe that our family threw two girls away in three years long exile.”
When they brought Qin Xin back then, they had said to outsiders that the daughter of the eldest branch was accidentally lost in exile.
If the daughter of the second branch was similarly lost in exile… this will be nothing more than treating others as fools.
Although the emperor and empress might know what was going on but it still needed to be hidden from the outside world.
Qin Zhun also started hesitating.
Marchioness Su is indeed somewhat reasonable.
Besides, Xiner will be Second Princes concubine, or even the queen.
We cant have her origins unclear.
It wont sound good in the future history books.
Since she is going to be in the second branch, we have to make it foolproof at least!
“Mother.” An intelligent gleam flashed past Qin Zhuns eyes.
“Do you remember that when I was away fifteen years ago, AYuan was with a child.”
When Qin Zhun spoke of this, not just Madam Qin remembered but even Marchioness Su recalled.
Fifteen years ago, Marchioness Su was indeed pregnant with a child.
But it wasnt long before Marchioness Su received the news of her paternal grandmothers death.
Presumably, she was pregnant after the death of her grandmother.
According to the rules, she must observe mourning.
So the couple discussed and quietly decided to abort the child.
So, not many people knew about it.
“If that child was born, he would have been half a year older than Xiner.” Madam Qin was also tempted.
This is just perfect!
We can say to the outsiders that because MarchionessSu was in the period of mourning but was reluctant to abort the child, she secretly gave the child away to others after he was born.
She didnt bring it back until she returned to the capital, and that too under the elder branchs name.
But now that the real daughter of the eldest branch was back, they could only take the child back to the second branch.
Although it doesnt sound very good to have the child during mourning but its well within reasons as Marchioness Su followed Qin Zhun and hadnt received the news in time.
And at the end of the day, they were left with no other better way.
Qin Zhun could only bite the bullet.
“Then, lets do this.
After the elder brothers daughter comes back, I will write Xiners name under ours and open the ancestral hall together.”
“Good, good.” Madam Qin nodded her head in a hurry.
This is indeed the best way to have it both ways!
Her husband had agreed.
Even her mother-in-law had agreed.
Although Marchioness Su was feeling a little unhappy, she knew that there was no room for her to talk about this matter.
So, she readily agreed.
Sure enough, Qin Zhun gave her a grateful glance.
He felt that Marchioness Su bore the overall situation in mind and put general interest above all.
