WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE - WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE Chapter 21 - Conspiracy and Suspicion
Su Qianqian held Bai Suxue who fell to the ground, staring at Mumian and said: “Mumian, I feel sorry!” she gnashed, without a slightest hint of guilty.
Mumian, who stood behind, did not retreat, looking at Su Qianqian in the eye: “Concubine Su, you shouldn’t feel sorry for me. You should feel sorry for the lady who has passed away and my Miss who was once weak. You couldn’t be clearer about how the lady used to treat you. While the lady died, you treated my Miss like this.”
Mumian’s sharp language irritated Su Qianqian : “Don’t you feel guilty? Although I only know a few words, I still have the minimum conscience. I would accept your apology. What I only hope is that you will not set my Miss in trouble.”
Resisting resentment and anger in heart, Su Qianqian turned her face to the other side and no longer took care of Mumian.
Bai Aoxue sneered and looked at Qiwei Bai: “Father, this is the case today. I am tired and want to go back to rest earlier. If you hope I can marry 5th prince, it would be better for you to take good care of those miscellaneous freeloaders in our mansion. Do not make troubles at my place so that I can also have some leisure time when I stayed at prime minister’s mansion. Therefore, you will have fewer headaches concerning my uncle.”
Bai Qiwei knew that he had a big loss this time.
Although he had a lot of dissatisfactions with Bai Aoxue , after listening to her words, he also knew that he can only let her leave. This time he suffered a huge loss which cannot be told to others.
“Besides, father, you should go to see a doctor about your hand as early as possible. If it is late, there is no good to be disabled. What would happen if Chengxi Dynasty’s prime minister can’t write? Don’t you think so, father?” Bai Aoxue “warmheartedly” remained of him.
Bai Qiwei felt the pain in his arm, although he did not believe that it was as serious as Aoxue said.
But just in case, Bai Qiwei swung his sleeve hardly, regardless of Su Qianqian and her daughter, and strode out with a group of attendants.
Watching Qiwei Bai’s departure, the light of hope in Su Qianqian ‘s eyes became weaker and weaker until it disappeared.
Bai Aoxue didn’t care about Su Qianqian and her daughter. There was a long time ahead anyway.
“Concubine Su, I hope you can remember this lesson clearly. Next time, I will not be so nice. Especially you, my little sister, I will spare you this time. I wouldn’t be bothered if you want to kill me. I just hope that you can cherish your life.” Bai Aoxue glared at them.
After that, she left the small courtyard slowly with Mumian and Xiangxue.
The servants in the yard all gave the way for them. Their cautious appearance made Mumian could not help smiling. She laughed and said: “Miss, I never thought there would be such a day. You are really powerful.”
After listening to Mumian’s words, Bai Aoxue smiled slightly. That mild and bright appearance was entirely different from the bloodthirsty mania appearance she just showed.
But no matter what she looked like, Bai Aoxue was gorgeous.
Although her face was not soul-stirring at the first glance, it was hard for people to forget at the first sight. She had a more and more charming air that only belonged to her.
“Mumian, I said, if anyone bullies you sometime, just hit back. No matter who he or she is, I will fight back for you, understand? You can’t hide the truth again like this time when you are wronged in the future.” Looking at the severely swollen cheeks of Mumian, Bai Aoxue felt distressed.
Mumian heard the words of Bai Aoxue , holding back tears and nodding harshly.
Xiangxue looked at Bai Aoxue and Mumian standing aside. She couldn’t help feeling jealous of their friendship.
In this world, there were few Misss like Bai Aoxue who shielded her servants, and loyal servants like Mumian were also rare.
Xiangxue can’t help being depressed and gloomy when she thought of it. However, she did not find that her every moves were caught by Bai Aoxue .
Back to the small courtyard, Bai Aoxue sent Xiangxue to get the ointment of relieving swelling, to reducing the swelling of the cheeks of Mumian. She began to think about her next move.
Bai Aoxue knew that Su Qianqian and her daughter would not leave the matter at that, especially Su Qianqian , who was disgraced like that. How could such a person not take revenge?
Bai Qiwei could be left aside for the moment. Bai Aoxue herself was now sole and weak. It could be better if she was alone, but now there was a Mumian who even could not protect herself.
If Su Qianqian really took actions, it may be implicated Mumian. Bai Aoxue didn’t want to see that happen.
Looking at the dim sky, Bai Aoxue murmured: “Maybe, it is not a bad thing to bet.”
After Su Qianqian and her daughter were carrying back to their room by the servants, they began to take the angry out on them instead.
“You bitches! Just watching my performance, really happy, aren’t you?!” Su Qianqian pulled a maidservant’s hair nearby and cried ferociously.
“Forgive me, Miss, I didn’t I was also very sad about your suffering!” The maidservant, who was caught in her hair, flowed out the tears of pain and hurriedly shouted.
“Humph, you bitches, if you dare to spread today’s happenings, you should be careful of your life! All of you get out!” yielded as she soothed Su Qianqian .
After the servants heard that they could leave, even rolling and climbing, they rushed out of Su Qianqian ‘s room like being absolved.
Su Qianqian looked at the servants who fled as if they’ve escaped from a disaster. Her hatred towards Bai Aoxue in heart was even deepened. That angry turbulent in her eyes seemed to erupt.
“Mother, don’t be angry, we must teach Bai Aoxue that bitch a lesson! How dare she treat us like this? She really doesn’t know who she is!” Bai Suxue also hated Bai Aoxue .
Fortunately, Bai Aoxue did not treat her like what she did to her mother.
There was always a bit of happiness of surviving.
Su Qianqian looked at her daughter’s face which was distorted by hatred. Her only thought was that her daughter has resolutely given up her. Suddenly, Su Qianqian could not help but feel sad for her rest life.
Qiwei Bai’s attitude towards her today and Bai Suxue ‘s decisiveness—the daughter of her own who gave up her for the sake of profit—were all thanks to Bai Aoxue .
Perhaps Su Qianqian also understood that these were all excuses for blaming on Bai Aoxue ..
“Suxue, I am unreconciled! I can’t stand losing to that bitch Bai Aoxue. I will certainly give today’s insult back to Bai Aoxue thousands of times harsher!” Su Qianqian said in a fury, clenching Bai Suxue ‘s hand.
“Rest assured, mother, we must not let Bai Aoxue be proud for too long! Now, we still need to wait for the end of this thing and then teach her well. We must think of a way to ruin her so that she cannot raise her head in front of the world anymore. I wonder whether she will raise her head that high when I look at her.” Bai Suxue looked at Su Qianqian and said angrily.
When Bai Suxue thought of Bai Aoxue ‘s proud appearance these days, the hatred in her heart became deeper. No matter how deliberately she modified her expression, there was no such momentum in her as in Bai Aoxue .
She showed such an awe-inspiring momentum as if Bai Suxue was lower than her. Bai Suxue was more and more unwilling when she thought of this and the murderous look on her face seemed to become more and more obvious.
Su Qianqian understood the mood of Bai Suxue , just as the same as she faced the mother of Bai Aoxue when she married the prime minister.
Unwillingness, jealousy, resentment, all kinds of emotions intertwined, letting her embark on this path that she cannot turn back.
And her daughter, now on the same path as her, was unable to be stopped. She could only help her daughter go smoothly on this road.
Su Qianqian explained cautiously: “Suxue, you should go to see your father first. He is also injured. Now you can say something more to him, and let your father stand firmly at your side. When your father asked about me, you could say that I was ill thanks to Bai Aoxue ’s behavior today and I have already gone to the ancestral hall. Don’t lose your temper in front of your father. This is good for you, do you understand?”
Su Qianqian also knew that now she should go to the ancestral hall and practice abstinence from meat and say prayers.
In order to give Bai Qiwei an image of forbearance, Su Qianqian must go to the ancestral hall.
“Mother, I know. Is that you really need to go to the ancestral hall for a month? When mother leaves from the hall a month later, Bai Aoxue has already been married. How could we retaliate at that time?” Bai Suxue was still concerned more about how to punish Bai Aoxue.
“You don’t need to worry about this. When mother takes actions, I will let the servant inform you. Now you should hold your breath first. Don’t act rashly!” Although Su Qianqian had a plan in her heart, she still needed to think twice about it.
It may be upset by Bai Suxue if she told her the plan right now. Thinking of these, Su Qianqian intended to slow down for a few days.
Bai Suxue also knew that Su Qianqian has always had a lot of plots; therefore she followed Su Qianqian ‘s words.
“Then you should also clean yourself, and then go to the ancestral hall. I will come to see you, mother. Just let me know whatever you need. Take care of yourself.” Bai Suxue did not forget to tell before she left.
Su Qianqian looked at Bai Suxue ‘s figure fading away, sighed slightly and got up to clean herself up.
“How is my lord’s hand?” Lei Bai, housekeeper of the prime minister’s mansion, asked the doctor nervously.
“Steward Bai, this is a serious injury. What caused my lord to be hurt so severely? Luckily, this treatment is timely. If there is a little delay, perhaps my lord would lose this hand.” Haunting by that, doctor said and looked at Qiwei Bai’s red and swollen hand.
Bai Qiwei listened to doctor’s words. Although he was shocked, he did not show it.
He used the other hand to hide embarrassments, covering up his mouth slightly and coughing: “Well… it is just a little injury. When I came back today, it was so dark that I didn’t notice the threshold. It happened and here I am.”
Looking at the suspicious doctor, Bai Qiwei continued: “My hand… how many days does it take to recover?”
When the doctor listened to Qiwei Bai, he showed an appearance of I knew it: “Days? You overestimated me. And My lord, even the most famous medical doctor may take half a month to let you recover.”
“I am not talented enough. You can only recover in one month at the earliest. As for full recovery, it may take a little bit longer. You hurt too badly.” The doctor looked at Qiwei Bai’s complexion, carefully telling the answer that Bai Qiwei inquired.
The housekeeper, who stood aside, looked at the face of Bai Qiwei turning from red to black, knowing that Bai Qiwei was on the edge of flying into a rage. He immediately said: “If this is the case, then please leave me go get medicine for you with doctor, my lord. Please also take a break.”
Physician also knew that it was not as simple as a wrestle, but he knew that sometimes ignorance was the best.
When he heard housekeeper’s words, he nodded, holding his own medicine box. Then he followed the housekeeper, and then left the yard of Qiwei Bai.
After listening to the doctor’s words, Bai Qiwei was silent.
In the beginning, perhaps the pain made him forget to think, but Qiwei Bai, who calmed down, began to sort out his own ideas and recall what happened just now.
Bai Aoxue was just a young girl who was waiting to get marry. Nobody has ever taught her martial arts since childhood, but the power she showed today cannot be compared by a submissive girl.
And all the changes in Bai Aoxue presented these days have also caused Bai Qiwei to suspect. Whether he has been neglected her for so many years or Bai Aoxue has always been hiding herself made him know nothing about her was unknown.
Perhaps all of this should be reconsidered from the beginning.
When Bai Qiwei was thinking, Bai Suxue rushed to the court of Bai Qiwei with her maidservants at the same time.
