WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE - WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE Chapter 24 - Plans and Tracking
Su Qianqian together with other concubines in the mansion has taken away the remains of Bai Aoxue ’s mother after her death just as Bai Aoxue expected.
What Xiangxue reported when she came back was similar to what Mumian said.
“Miss, according to the information I just got, that rice shop has been profitable for all these years, while the antique shop is not doing well since Concubine Su is arrogant and often takes advantage of the guests. Now few people visit there.”
After listening to Xiangxue’s words, Bai Aoxue sneered, and then slightly nodded, indicating that Xiangxue was allowed to continue.
“Even though rice shop is profitable, its profit is used to patch up the deficit of antique shop because of the huge loss of the restaurant. Concubine Su basically did not make any money in the past few years.” Xiangxue immediately finished.
“Why didn’t Concubine Su transfer the ownership of the restaurant to someone else?” Mumian was puzzled at aside.
“She dared not. She can’t get through my uncle unless she was tired of living. Not to mention what my father would say. “Clever of Aoxue answered Mumian.
“But, Miss. I just know that it seems that she has been keeping in touch with buyers these days. She wants to transfer the restaurant.” Xiangxue shot the news she pried.
“Miss, what should we do? This is left by my lady for you!” Mumian couldn’t calm down. She hurriedly shouted.
Bai Aoxue also fell into meditation for Xiangxue’s words. And she didn’t even think about that Su Qianqian would be as bold as brass.
“Xiangxue, do you know whether Concubine Su has found a buyer?” Bai Aoxue turned to look at Xiangxue, asked calmly.
“Miss, I heard that Concubine Su has found a few buyers, but they all know those twists and didn’t want to get involved. They all refused Concubine Su.” Xiangxue saved the surprised news for last.
Mumian, calmed her mood a little and just wanted to talk after she heard the words of Xiangxue.
“However, there is a buyer who has taken a fancy to the location of the antique shop. He has already signed a contract with Concubine Su and only waits for signature and title deed.” Xiangxue said, leaving no time for Mumian to come to herself.
“Buyer, who is he?” Bai Aoxue knew that this man was apparently not an ordinary people since he dared to get involved in such a trouble.
Xiangxue secretly observed the expression of Bai Aoxue but was still disappointed. Bai Aoxue did not show a trace of surprise or confusion.
“He belongs to Nalan family—ranking first among the Four Families of Great Continent. The person who wants to buy the restaurant is the next landlord Youhong Nalan.” Xiangxue told Bai Aoxue what she has inquired.
“Youhong Nalan? Ah, I don’t expect this naïve young man Nalan would want to roil the water even more turbid.” Bai Aoxue smiled gently.
She was not frightened by Youhong Nalan’s title and family background at all.
“Miss, what should we do now? I heard that Youhong Nalan is crafty and odd. He is not easy to be convinced.” Mumian looked at Bai Aoxue anxiously.
Xiangxue, after hearing that “crafty and odd” of Mumian, twitched the corners of her mouth.
And looking at entirely different expressions of them, Bai Aoxue guessed that Xiangxue and Youhong Nalan had some special relationship although she did not say anything.
“Mumian, don’t worry, even though Concubine Su wants to resell the restaurant, it belongs to me. She had no choice.” Bai Aoxue comforted Mumian.
“Yeah, Mumian, you don’t need to worry. Miss has her own ways. We need to have faith in her.” Xiangxue also hurriedly comforted innocent Mumian.
Mumian also felt that she should give Bai Aoxue more trust.
The grievances and humiliations of Mumian for these years have been dissolved by Bai Aoxue and were paid back to those people.
This kind of Bai Aoxue had a convincing momentum and an air of assuring.
Stareing at the ever-changing facial expression of Mumian, Bai Aoxue immediately knew what she was thinking.
“Miss, Concubine Su is such a jerk. We cannot let things happen like this as she wished!” Mumian sternly looked at Bai Aoxue .
Bai Aoxue just smiled after listening to Mumian.
As for how to tame Su Qianqian and her daughter, Bai Aoxue has already had her plans. If they didn’t go this far, Bai Aoxue will not do anything. Since they were impenitence, they should go to hell.
She never felt that she was nice. In such a complicated world, if she wanted to live, the only way was to be stronger.
She could survive from thousands of people and stood proudly at the top mountain in the preceding world.
Then, now in the troubled era of cold weapon, she would certainly be able to stand on the peak and live a free and unfettered life!
“Well, Mumian, don’t worry. We need a long-term plan about how to defend them. You could leave and take a rest since it’s already so late.” Bai Aoxue looked at Mumian and Xiangxue, and what was on her mind was not about Su Qianqian .
After listening to Bai Aoxue ’s words, Mumian and Xiangxue presented respects, and then slowly retreated.
Bai Aoxue looked at the dim sky and sighed slightly.
Stepping forward to the bed, she took out the nocturnal subterfuge cloth that she wore last time from under the bed.
“Something exciting would happen tonight.” Looking at the houses with flickering lights outside the window, Bai Aoxue said to herself.
Xiangxue and Mumian who just retreated each returned to their room.
Xiangxue, deftly closed her room door and then took out what she needed from a bag in front of the bed after checking around carefully.
Bai Aoxue would be shocked if she saw the scene, because the thing that Xiangxue took out was nothing else but a suit of nocturnal subterfuge clothed a night-walker needed.
Swiftly putting on the suit, Xiangxue immediately turned from a petite maidservant to a powerful mysterious night killer.
Secretly opening a slice of a window, Xiangxue looked around with vigilance and then quietly closed the window after making sure that Bai Aoxue and Mumian have turned off the lights in their rooms.
But in the next moment, a petite black figure quickly disappeared into the darkness by virtue of moonlight.
This person was not someone else but Bai Aoxue ’s new maidservant Xiangxue.
Xiangxue quietly left Bai Aoxue ‘s small courtyard. She was careful but inevitable negligent. Smart as she didn’t notice that she was followed by someone.
If she looked back, she might see a familiar figure and a pair of eyes which blazed like torches.
In fact, Bai Aoxue never went to sleep. She has already changed her clothes before Xiangxue.
If she was right, Xiangxue must have a leader. Yesterday, she intended to let her share a room with Mumian, so she had no chance to leave.
She therefore must find an opportunity to report a series of events that happened in the mansion in the past two days.
And Xiangxue was told to do things by Aoxue today. There was no time for her to leave except evening. After everyone has rested, Xiangxue got her chance.
Besides, at night, guards of Prime Minister’s mansion would also low down their security precautions.
This was the best occasion for Xiangxue.
Bai Aoxue did not believe that Xiangxue would not take actions tonight, so she was waiting for her. Aoxue asked them to go to rest earlier in order to follow Xiangxue and then find the person behind her.
Xiangxue was probably equipped with some martial skills. Although Bai Aoxue ’s physical fitness was not as good as she used to be, she could still keep up with Xiangxue.
Carefully following Xiangxue, Bai Aoxue was wondering who actually let Xiangxue spy on her and what was his purpose?
If he was the one that she guessed, then she would ask for his intentions!
Bai Aoxue followed Xiangxue along the way, her doubts slowly faded away through observing the surrounding environment.
Until Xiangxue went to the back door of a mansion, the doubts in Bai Aoxue ’s mind disappeared completely.
Hiding herself in the darkness, Bai Aoxue calmly looked at Xiangxue who was whispering codes to an originally lazy-looked guard.
Bai Aoxue sneered and thought: This 5th prince’s mansion was really not as same as rumor said.
Indeed, just as Bai Aoxue suspected at the beginning, Xiangxue came to the residence of 5th prince.
When Xiangxue approached her in the beginning, Bai Aoxue started to suspect whether the people behind Xiangxue was Nightmare.
After all, it was impossible for a submissive young lady who was harmless and with no advantage to bring threat to anyone.
If that person was Nightmare who has seen her and talked to her, then it would be different.
Watching Xiangxue enter that mansion, Bai Aoxue steered by those attendants and jumped onto the high wall then disappeared quickly.
Looking at Xiangxue who entered this mansion quickly and familiarly, Bai Aoxue sneered.
Luckily, she was Bai Aoxue . She was cold-hearted and merciless. She trusted no one and had no sympathy.
If she believed in Xiangxue at the beginning, she would have no accompany expect the God of Death.
Bai Aoxue followed Xiangxue cautiously.
Looking at the familiar scenery, Bai Aoxue had no mood to appreciate.
When Bai Aoxue followed Xiangxue and stepped into the bamboo forest, her mind was already as clear as a mirror.
The bamboo forest was still the same as a few days ago when she arrived. Lush bamboos shadowed the sky, connecting like a sea.
Beautiful and elegant.
Perhaps no one has ever thought that 5th prince’s mansion, which seemed in ruins from the outside, was actually a paradise.
When Bai Aoxue came to the place she has been a few days ago, her thoughts were complicated.
The hot springs were still there, but the person who had been in it has long since disappeared.
“Miss, Xiangxue has something to report.” Xiangxue’s respectful and excited voice also pulled back Bai Aoxue ’s wandering thoughts.
Looking at Xiangxue who knelt on her knees and looked at the ground, Bai Aoxue knew that the people in the Bamboo House must be Xiangxue’s Miss.
Time slowly passed away, but no sound came from the room. It made people wonder if there was anyone in the room.
But Bai Aoxue knew that there must be someone in the Bamboo House. That weak but swaying light was like a mysterious guide.
In order to assassinate somebody in preceding world, she could be motionless and could eat nothing for three days.
This kind of experience also made Bai Aoxue particularly sensitive about sounds and perception.
From the slightly open window, Bai Aoxue could perceive the slow and long breathing of that people in the house.
Xiangxue still knelt on the ground. Neither did she get up or say anything. Bai Aoxue hid in darkness and observed carefully.
Just when Bai Aoxue thought that the people in the house would not speak, a light male voice flowed out like a vintage wine.
“Oh? What is it?”
