Chapter 75: Intended Plan (Part 3)
At the moment, it was a mess in Cai Yun Yuan.
Shen Gui just left but before he did that he gotten into a big quarrel with Ren Wan Yun. Ever since the day Shen Xin returned on Old Shen Furen’s birthday, Shen Gui was in conflict with Ren Wan Yun on the matter. In fact Shen Gui knew about Shen Miao’s confinement but to him, once anything went wrong he would push everything to Ren Wan Yun.
For him and Shen Wan to walk to this point today, it was all due to the people’s connections that Shen Xin left behind. Even though they both have a certain status in court today, if Shen Xin had the intention to do them harm, Shen Gui’s and Shen Wan’s careers would inevitably be in a mess. This was a world where military were respected. Even though the civil officials ridicule the Generals for being unruly and brute, whoever had the military power, whoever will be the most important force in Ming Qi. The Emperor would naturally protect the General as compared to the civil officials.
In the past both brothers were able to keep the act up without leaking a drop of water, and Shen Xin was also willingly to look after them. Who knew that this time Shen Xin saw for himself that Shen Miao was trapped in a sea of fire. Shen Xin valued Shen Miao like his life and would do anything in a fit of anger which made Shen Gui flustered. Ever since Shen Xin returned, Shen Gui was extremely irritable but Ren Wan Yun happened to mention about withdrawing from the marriage at this time. It was practically adding oil into the fire, so all the dissatisfaction that he had with Ren Wan Yun was unleashed.
Today was the same, he got into a furious fight with Ren Wan Yun and put his foot down that Shen Qing must marry into the Huang family. Shen Gui flicked his sleeves and left Ren Wan Yun who was gasping for air as she almost fainted.
“Animals! Animals!” Ren Wan Yun stroke her heart and her lips were trembling.
Shen Gui did not care for the happiness of his daughter, and set his heart climbing up the Huang family for his own career advancement, and that made Ren Wan Yun so angry that she could throw horses and men off their feet. Now that Shen Xin had returned, Luo Xue Yan was not someone who one could get along easily. If it was not because the matter was extremely confidential, if Shen Xin and wife knew that she had the idea of exchanging the marriages, she was afraid that they would have the heart to kill her. Even if Shen Xin and wife did not discover it this time, the matter on the fire at the ancestral hall had already estranged the First household from them, thus it would be harder to do harm to Shen Miao in the future.
Ren Wan Yun could not wait to cut Shen Miao up into thousands of slices. In the beginning it was Shen Miao that schemed against Shen Qing. If it was not for Shen Miao, then how would Shen Qing end up being forced to marry a cut sleeve. Now that Shen Miao had Shen Xin’s protection, it would be difficult to take action in the area of marriage.
“Furen, please cool down.” Xiang Lan cooled down Ren Wan Yun and spoke, “One’s must not destroy the body with anger. The returning banquet is in a few days’ time. If that happens then it would not be convenient to move it.
Ren Wan Yun eyes moved and a grim smile appeared on her face, “You are right. I must not destroy my body with anger. During the returning banquet… During the returning banquet, I want that little slut to live worse than death!” She turned her head and looked at Cai Ju, “Did the letter reached to Prince Yu residence?”
“It is already sent over.” Cai Ju carefully said.
“Since my Qing-er’s ending is not good, that little slut better not be thinking of escaping!” There were traces of a sneer in Ren Wan Yun’s expression as she coldly laughed, “I cannot do anything to her as Shen Xin is there protecting her, but if they have the ability then they should go against Prince Yu.” She was alike to a vicious snake as she said gruesomely, “There will be someone that will take care of her!”
The residence of Prince Yu of the First Rank.
In the magnificent and grand main hall, there was a beautiful Persian dancer wearing a thin piece of clothes dancing. Those fair bare feet were stepping on the soft carpet and there were coloured bells dangling around her ankles, as they rang a sweet dingling sound following the dance moves. Her snake-like body was dancing vicariously.
High up on the seat was a male who had an ugly and hideous face and an empty left leg. It was Prince Yu. At the moment there was a petite girl kneeling next to him. That young female was around eleven or twelve and she was very young and very beautify but her eyes were filled with fear. At this moment she was no more than an inch away, pounding lightly on Prince Yu’s leg.
This young female’s fair body was covered with purple and blue bruises. Upon a closer look, there were red whip marks. It was obviously she had experienced a painful and excruciating torture.
Prince Yu looked at the contents of the letter and he suddenly laughed and violently smacked the lion head on the seat. The young female screamed in shock and quickly fell onto the ground as her entire body could not help but trembled.
“Shen Xin…” A few words were chewed out of Prince Yu’s mouth. “Shen Miao… Actually dare to play around with this Prince.”
After what happened that night, because he had found other interesting things, he had thrown it to the back of his mind. For Prince Yu, these young ladies were only interesting toys and were the same as rearing those cats and dogs. As for what would happen to them later, he does not care one bit. Combined with Shen Gui’s concealment, he did not discover anything wrong.
Until this letter came, he finally recalled that there were some odd things that day. That Shen Miao had such good means that not only she counter checked Ren Wan Yun, she also played with him.
In Ming Qi, Prince Yu of the First Rank was considered a son of the Imperial family. Other than the Emperor, everyone would have to be courteous and give in to him. Shen Miao was a little girl and even dared to step on his dignity under her feet. If previously he only felt interested in playing with Shen Miao, this time Prince Yu had truly became furious and his murderous intention was ignited.
It is just that now Shen Xin was still protecting her in the Ding capital. How can he take action? Or could it be possible to eliminate Shen Qiu.
Prince Yu of the First Rank touched his chin and a trace of extreme viciousness flashed in his eyes.
