音又幽幽道:“敢问老太太,其他兄弟姐妹,有知道这事的没有呢?”老太太答道:“兹事体大,你们这一辈,原来只有你二姐姐知情。你三 哥哥出仕在外,就不叫他烦心了。连你大哥哥,也是中了举,必有功名在前了,这才叫他知道的。”那就是明柯不知道。或者老太太不知道他 知道。宝音只当博取老太太欢心、听了宫中秘辛,冤情就能水落石出,想不到明柯和老太太不是一路的,还要撬开明柯的嘴。宝音正沉吟,老 太太又道:“而今你也知道了,开春后,照你二姐姐的意思,我们就将带你进京。你珞表姊,她父亲对你大舅的学士保举,出了大力,想必你 也听说过。这个恩情,我们要还,故此开春后带她一起进京,苏家的秘密是不会告诉她,你也千万死咬了,什么都莫告诉她。进得京后,你爷 爷对她自然另有安排。”宝音一一应下。答应一件事,是这样容易的,只需“喏”一声便可以,肺腑间的疼痛煎熬,自己慢慢消化,别人不必 知道。老太太抚慰宝音,道她辛苦甚了,且回去歇息,其他话慢慢再说。宝音正要走,老太太忽叫住她:“孩儿转来。”宝音住脚,回头,不 知她有什么话讲。老太太看了她一会儿,点头赞道:“你跟你四姐姐能和睦,我很高兴。”是。老太太也知道明秀支持的是福珞。寿宴胜负已 分后,宝音还能与明秀一起提祝寿糕篮上来,固然明秀心怀宽广,宝音与人相处的能耐,也可见一斑。这才是真正促使老太太在寿宴后就公布 决定的原因。她认为宝音肩上,已经可以压下担子去了。第七十章 死因初晓谁怜月(3)宝音带着老太太沉甸甸的嘱托回屋来:“介入皇家子 嗣秘闻,苏家要么今后飞黄腾达,要么死无葬身之处。昭华嫔压下命,苏家避无可避,过河的卒子只有向前。”老太太愿宝音勇往直前,立下 奇功,宝音却不再有那份忠心,不能横竖横的为老太太赴死。从前,老太太对她好,她事事为老太太呕心沥血,末了一条命填给黄表纸,也填 得过了。今后,她还想慢慢儿享受人生,才不愿入宫厮杀。她有办法回绝老太太,那也是她的杀手锏,即使在进京前一天,使出来都有效,包 福珞只能独自儿进京去,老太太那个珍而重之的秘密,也只有向外姓人袒露了,不知这外姓人乐不乐意听。而在那之前,宝音想,还是得先打 问出明柯的秘密。为什么,非害她不可?那金像,明柯为什么非要拿到手;拿到后,又为何还是送回来?勒索银钱的,是明柯么?明柯要那些 钱作什么?要问个端详,也有法子,好在是明柯现如今天天的来女学给明灵送吃的玩的,寿宴前几天,宝音已经旁敲侧击了明柯,明柯不但赌 虫亏空大,而且除了田庄之外,似乎还在外头有生意,仿佛跟明蕙也有牵连,这之中,都涉及资金。宝音接下去要问的,是明柯为什么要拿浑 金像,是否知道
