Elder Li knew what was going to happen, but for the sake of playing along, he asked, “Your Majesty, why did you summon this man to the audience hall?”
“It’s not a big deal,” Ning Xiaoyao said cheerfully, “I’m just getting my fourth uncle out of his family—that is, severing his ties to his clan.”
“……..” said the officials. Isn’t that a huge deal?!
Having been born and raised in the apocalypse, Ning Xiaoyao naturally had no idea how customs worked in this world. Those who wanted to leave their clans not only had to open the ancestral halls and burn incense in respect to the deceased, but also a.s.semble all the elders in the family and leave the record of separation in the hall as a formal farewell to the ancestors. They also needed to make a record with the local authorities and other trivial details to make the severance official.
“Grand Preceptor, ah,” Ning Xiaoyao said carelessly. “Fourth uncle will be his own man from now all. I’ll have someone pick up my fourth aunt later.”
Xie Anwu only have one wife and no concubines. The couple had yet to bear any children, which was why Xie Anwu dared to sneak his wife out of the estate and hide her away before leaving the clan on his own.
Grand Preceptor Xie said, “His wife isn’t at the Grand Preceptor’s estate.”
“Oh, that saves time, then,” Ning Xiaoyao said. “But we’ll still need to get fourth uncle’s possessions from the estate. I’ll have someone pick them up.”
“Possessions?” Grand Preceptor Xie smiled coldly.
“That’s right, he’s still your son. Grand Preceptor, could you bear to let my fourth uncle and aunt starve to death?” Ning Xiaoyao asked. “That doesn’t sound very good.”
Grand Preceptor Xie replied, “Isn’t Your Majesty on best relations with him?”
“Whaa?” Ning Xiaoyao’s eyes widened. “Grand Preceptor, do you mean to say that I should raise your son for you? Sure, we’re on good terms enough to be pals, but does that mean I’m capable of keeping him alive?”
“……..” said Grand Preceptor Xie. None of the other officials could understand it either. Why does Grand Preceptor still try to talk back against His Majesty? It’s obvious he’s no match for the emperor.
Grand Preceptor Xie looked towards Xie Anwu next, who had already stood up and lowered his head after he didn’t catch his father’s glance the first time. Grand Preceptor Xie asked, “You’re really cutting yourself off from the clan?”
Hearing this, Ning Xiaoyao grew a little nervous. But Xie Anwu only nodded once and said, “Yes, your son is unfilial.”
“Grand Preceptor doesn’t want you to be filial,” Ning Xiaoyao interrupted. “He’ll be less vexed once you’re gone and he can’t see you anymore. Fourth uncle, ah, where will we ever find a son as filial as you under the Heavens?”
Xie Anwu’s face turned red at Ning Xiaoyao’s words. His Majesty’s too good at spewing nonsense.
Grand Preceptor Xie looked at Ning Xiaoyao and said, “How did Your Majesty know that this subject found the sight of his son weary?”
