Chapter 155 – Secrets revealed (7)
Lu Luo’s entire body was trembling, but she still firmly insisted. “The Miss really is in her room. This is the absolute the truth. The Miss these days never steps foot outside of the door. She had been copying the sacred scriptures inside her room as blessing prayers for Lord Su. How could the third Miss slander the Fourth Miss in such a manner?”
“Sneer——,” Su Wan let out a sneer. She could not be bothered to waste her breath with this girl’s nonsense..
“Honorable Father, whether the Fourth younger sister is present or not. Why should we believe the words of a servant girl? This is what is called don’t believe what people tell you until you see if for yourself. If we go in and have a look, then wouldn’t the whole truth be revealed?” While speaking Su Wan pushed open Su Luo’s bedroom door.
At this time, Lu Luo lifted her eyes. She had a having been wronged expression, crying with a tone of complaining. “The Third Miss, it is reasonable to say that this servant can not say anything against you. However this servant is still so bold as to ask this sentence on behalf of the fourth Miss. The Third Miss, do you harbor any ill intentions?”
“What did you a loathsome servant girl say? Dare so far as to say this to a master of the house. Don’t want to live right?” Su Wan thought this was inconceivable,?the always cowering Lu Luo dared to oppose her in front of her face as if she was striking the drums and calling for a challenge. .
“The third Miss, just a while ago, you broke and entered, destroying the door to this courtyard. Now you also brought Lord Su here full of rage. What is your plan? What kind of offense did the Fourth Miss commit against you that you would treat her like this?” Lu Luo’s red rimmed eyes had tear drops rolling out.
“You, a mere servant girl dares to speak such nonsense!” With victory in her grasp, she was being delayed by this servant girl’s excuses. Su Wan’s eyes were like sharp swords that pierced toward Lu Luo. She made a firm decision once she had taken care of Su Luo afterwards she would definitely not let this servant girl live.
Ha ha, could it be that this servant girl actually thought by stalling for time Su Luo would actually come back? Dream on.
“The third Miss, the fourth Miss is already so pitiful. Why would you maliciously slander her? How would such unwanted slander benefit you? Please let go of the fourth Miss, alright?” Lu Luo raised her eyes full of tears but firmly and determinedly stared at Su Wan.
“As expected. The servant girl taught by the fourth younger sister is also rude, vulgar and unreasonable.” If it was in the past, Su Wan naturally would order people to beat Lu Luo to death with a wooden stick. However because Su Zian was present she could not reveal her wicked nature.
Therefore she only sneered. “Saying this lady maliciously slandered her master? Ha, ha, Lu Luo servant girl. If your Miss really is inside than this lady will kowtow to her and pour her some tea as apology!”
Barely finished speaking, her hand already touched the door to the inner bedroom.
The door was heavily pushed open.
Su Wan with her face full of confidence entered behind Su Zian. Her face was brimming with a victorious smiling expression. Because after today’s event, the Great General’s Manor Su Luo would already have ceased to exist here. This person would became history.
However when she saw clearly saw the situation within the room, the glorious smiling expression on Su Wan’s mouth immediately froze. It was so stiff that she almost pulled a muscle.
She look as if seeing a ghost at Su Luo who sat at the desk with an upright posture, her hands holding a brush conscientiously writing. She heard a exploding sound in her mind and then it became blank.
Really saw a ghost!
How could this be possibl
Su Luo her, how could she be here!
Furthermore like Lu Luo said, she sat upright in front of her desk, brush by brush earnestly correctly copying the sacred scriptures. A huge pile of paper was placed by the side of her desk, those fine and neat words at a glance could tell took a lot of effort.
Clearly, clearly a quarter of an hour before Su Luo was not here….
Su Wan immediately became dumbfounded. She felt that she was as stupid as a pig. She was also the stupidest and most foolish of all pigs….
Chapter 156 – Secrets revealed (8)
Su Luo lifted her eyes up and looked at them. She then put down her brush and got up.
Su Zian’s complexion in a split second became unsightly. His cold gaze swept past Su Wan in a quick glance. He turned his head toward Su Luo, frowned, and then opened his mouth to speak. “These last few days, you have remained here, never leaving once?”
Su Luo’s expression was composed. Without any indignation or heat she faced her father and with a rather puzzled expression said. “Daddy, wasn’t it you who commanded that this daughter was forbidden to go out? How could this daughter go anywhere?”’
Such a simple sentence, but it caused Su Zian to choke until his complexion changed.
This daughter’s words were ordinary, but why did they feel as sharp as a sword? Moreover, the sentence struck at the most crucial points, cutting people off until they had nothing left to say?
Su Zian felt somewhat awkward.
Right now, Su Wan had landed in a quandary.
Privately in Su Wan’s heart, she had believed Liu Ruohua because Liu Ruohua had no reason to deceive her. Furthermore, Liu Ruohua previously had not known that Su Luo had escaped from her forced confinement. Therefore, Liu Ruohua’s words had a certain amount of authenticity.
However, in actuality, Su Wan had no choice but to suspect that the reason she couldn’t find Su Luo in her courtyard before was because Su Luo and Liu Ruohua had arranged to set her up. They had made her jump into a trap.
Currently, Su Wan’s expression fluctuated indeterminately. It was suddenly bright then dark for a while, it was as if she was unable to make a firm resolution on her feelings.
Su Zian originally had thought that this daughter would say something and save him from embarrassment. However, he had never thought that Su Wan would be so useless. He lightly coughed and deliberately frowned. While staring at Su Luo,he said, “You truly have never left this place?”
“These past days, daughter has continuously copied the sacred scriptures. I have spent countless hours meticulously copying every page. Granted, even if I could go out, this daughter wouldn’t have the time to.” Su Luo said this very innocently, her dark pair of eyes were like limpid, watery mist. She looked at her cheap old man with an expression of having been wronged.
Sure enough, Su Zian was again deceived by such behavior. His expression eased and he asked another question. “What about that Jade Lake’s Fairy? You really have never offended her?”
Su Luo feigned innocence and asked, “The Jade Lake’s Fairy? Did she come to the capital? Such a pity. All along, this daughter had been locked up in her courtyard, couldn’t even take a single step outside. Otherwise, I could have secretly run over catch a glimpse of her. I heard that the Jade Lake’s Fairy is very beautiful!”
“Cough, cough, cough.” Su Zian felt that his face had started to turn red.
Su Luo obviously had never even seen the Jade Lake’s Fairy, how could she offend someone she had never seen? Besides, the Jade Lake’s Fairy was at Sinking Sunset Peak which was hundreds and thousands of kilometers away from here. How could Su Luo in such a short time have run over to see the Jade Lake’s Fairy and then even offend her?
That huge pile of sacred scriptures, without a month of two of labor, how could it have been transcribed? Look at this girl, she had even lost some weight.
His thinking had been too muddled. He had actually one-sidedly believed only Su Wan’s words and in a rage had run over to interrogate Su Luo.
Once he recalled this, Su Zian felt an unprecedented shame towards Su Luo. In contrast, he felt an unprecedented disgust in regards to Su Wan. This Su Wan, recently she had become more and more outrageous. It seemed that letting her out of her courtyard had been the wrong decision.
“That being so…” Su Zian just wanted to let this spectacle pass and pretend as if it had never happened.
However, how could Su Wan let Su Luo go. “Father, where there’s smoke, there’s fire! This daughter is telling the truth. This news was not relayed to this daughter by a stranger, but by Prime Minister Liu’s family’s third Miss Liu Ruohua. From her own mouth, this daughter heard that Liu Ruohua came across fourth younger sister at the Sunset Mountain Range!”
