This portrait of An Lingyue was a bit different from what Nalan Yanming showed her, but it was still the unparalleled beauty that could make the whole world move.
The woman in the painting had a cool look, and her brows were thin. Her expression that was looking in front was just like a noble princess or the fairy from heaven.
An Lingyue in the painting had a face very similar to Hexi, but her expression was completely different from Hexi’s impression.
The woman who leaned against the window and looked at Nalan Hexi had a pair of tender eyes and a gentle smile that would even enthrall the sun, moon and stars.
However, An Lingyue’s eyes in the painting were extremely cold like a blade.
Moreover, Hexi couldn’t help but look at Nalan Ziyun beside her. I look so similar to An Lingyue, but Nalan Ziyun doesn’t have any similarity with her at all.
Of course, he is a fake one, so it’s reasonable if he doesn’t look like An Lingyue.
Nalan Zhengze’s fingers lightly touched the edge of the portrait, and his voice was filled with deep sorrow, “Your mother was very talented and beautiful in her lifetime, and it is precisely because of your mother’s help, we Nalan Mansion will only have our current status today. It was unfortunate that she passed away in her early life. Your mom’s body was not in a good condition after giving birth to you two. She passed away a few years later. Whenever I think of your mother, I will feel so sad that I can’t eat and sleep. I was even more afraid you two would be sad, so I sent you two separately to another courtyard and the Qixing Palace since young. Ziyun, Hexi, you won’t blame me right?”
Nalan Ziyun hurriedly said, “Don’t say that, dad. You sent us away because you love mom too much. Why would we blame you? Hexi, don’t you think so?”
Hexi chuckled lightly, “Since brother said so, then that’s the case.”
Nalan Zhengze was a little dissatisfied with Hexi’s weird tone, but he still continued, “Ziyun, Hexi, your mother told me during her lifetime that when she passed away, she would leave the most important things to you for custody. You can take it out when Nalan Mansion is in a crisis so that you can let Nalan Mansion regain its prestige. Of course, your merits for Nalan Mansion will also be remembered. In the future, all the resources of Nalan Mansion will be left to you.”
Nalan Zhengze then sighed, “To be honest, now our Nalan Mansion is in crisis. In this Yanjing City, there is a powerful force in the dark that wants to annex the four major families. Now Murong Mansion and Ouyang Mansion are gone, our Nalan Mansion will be the next. For Nalan Mansion, are you willing to give me the things that your mom left for you to save the Nalan Family?!”
“Of course we are willing!” Nalan Ziyun said quickly. “We are the people of Nalan Family; we have the blood of Nalan Family. The honor and disgrace of Nalan Family are related to our future. If the mom’s relics can save Nalan Family, I think mom will certainly be willing in the afterlife. Sister, do you think so?”
Hexi smiled without saying anything. She just let him perform as he wished.
Nalan Ziyun said anxiously, “But father, mom’s relics are not with me. Sister is older than me. Mom had asked sister to take good care of me. I think mom must have given the relics to sister. Sister, now that the situation is critical, you should hand over what mom left behind!”
Hexi showed a timely confusion on her face, “I’m sorry, I don’t understand what you are saying? You said that mom left relics, so what are the relics? Does the clothes that mom made for us count?”
