Chapter 20 – Simply unbelievable
Su Luo coldly smiled, “If I go whenever you tell me to, wouldn’t I lose a lot of face?” In Su Luo’s impression this Madam Su is not benevolent. The original soul that inhibited Su Luo’s body suffered countless losses at the hands of Madam Su and and Nanny Gui.
Nanny Gui coldly smiled and scornfully said. “ Fourth miss, you’re joking right?”
“This Miss never jokes.” Su Luo replied seemingly crossed her arms over her chest and seemed serious replied.
Nanny Gui narrowed her eyes and a vicious light flashed across her eyes. “Since Fourth Miss does not appreciate my kindness, then this servant will no longer be polite.”
Although she said she was the servant, there was no trace of respect in her expression and her actions were even more ruthlessly disrespectful. She casually took a few steps forward and appeared by Su Luo’s side. Her strong hands, like those used to catch baby chickens, extended toward Su Luo’s throat.
Su Luo’s eyes contained a frigid light.
Even a servant dare to hit her? Looks like Nanny Gui is impatient to die.
Right at this time of imminent peril, when the burly hands were about to seize Su Luo as Nanny Gui’s eyes flashed with victory, the situation suddenly reversed!
“AHHHH——” A miserable scream broke from Nanny Gui’s mouth and she looked as if her right arm was in pain as she covered it. The pain was so fierce that cold sweat started dripping off Nanny Gui’s face.
Of course Nanny Gui was in extreme pain. Since Su Luo was knowledgeable about human anatomy, when she fought, she directly hit the critical points on Nanny Gui’s right arm. Her movements were clean and neat without a hint of sloppyness.
Su Luo crossed her arms across her chest and calmly looked at her with a taunting, cold smile on her face.
“H-how do you know…. this isn’t possible!” Nanny Gui looked astonished and was obviously aghast.
“Oh?” Su Luo faintly sneered.
Nanny Gui painfully took a deep breath. She secretly cried to herself; illusion, it must be an illusion. Forth Miss is a good-for-nothing who doesn’t know any martial arts. How could she possibly beat me?
Thinking up to here, Nanny Gui released a evil laugh. “Since Fourth Miss refused my polite request unless I force you to, then don’t blame this old servant for being impolite!”
Nanny Gui used her other hand, curved into a steel claw, and reached toward Su Luo’s neck. She didn’t believe that she could not grasp the weak Fourth Miss, who did not know martial arts, with this method.
Suddenly, a black shadow flashed across Nanny Gui’s eyes. Su Luo’s figure had already disappeared from her line of sight.
However, in that short time, Su Luo aimed her foot at Nanny Gui’s butt and kicked.
It was this exact Buddha Mountain Shadowless Kick, that kicked Su Wan into the lotus pond yesterday. This kick was even more powerful now; it directly sent Nanny Gui into the wall three meters away.
Afterwards, a loud violent crash resounded.
The wall had not been repaired for many years now. Thus, it wasn’t very solid. The wall shook violently a few times and did not collapse, but some powdered mud broke from the wall and dropped to the ground. At this time, Nanny Gui had already passed out from hitting the wall.
Su Luo’s display of power stunned Lu Luo so much that her jaw dropped to the floor.
“M-M-Miss?” Lu Luo was so surprised that she could not speak in complete sentences.
Looking at the Miss who, with one kick, sent Nanny Gui into a dead faint, Lu Luo firmly rubbed her eyes. She still could not believe her eyes.
“Oh.” Su Luo softly sighed. With one hand under her chin, she pondered over how she was going to deal with this old witch.
From Su Luo’s previous memories, she recalled that these past years, Nanny Gui continuously bullied her. Even worse, she deliberately asked the kitchen to send pig feed for her to eat! When she was sick, instead of giving her medicine, she replaced the medicine with urine! The original Su Luo angrily protested but Nanny Gui actually used large needles to poke her!
This kind of old witch, it’s best she dies!
Just based on that hit, she should be out cold for a few days.
Chapter 21 – The long awaited day
At that moment, Su Xi quickly entered into the courtyard from the doorway. Her face brimmed with joy.
She was wearing a wide crimson sleeved flowing fairy top with a loose grass green pleated skirt decorated with misty flowers. Wrapped around her waist was a golden silk belt that blinds the eyes. She was like a freshly blooming lotus; youthfully delicate, lovable and charming.
Everything was beautiful except for one small glaring mistake; there were too many gold and silver jewelries on her body. It seemed as if she was wearing all the beautiful jewelry from the jewelry box; it was flamboyant, vulgar and tacky.
Today was the day Su Xi looked forward to for a long time.
Early in the morning, she was excitedly sitting in the main hall, shifted from left to right, but Su Luo still had not arrived. She finally couldn’t wait any longer and personally went looking for Su Luo.
She was just about to ridicule Su Luo, when she saw Nanny Gui laying on the floor, uncertain if she was dead or alive. An alarmed feeling flashed through her heart; her wide eyes glared at Su Luo and angrily said. “Nanny Gui kindly come to invite you, what exactly did you do to her?”
Su Luo innocently spread her hands. “ I didn’t touch her at all.” But I did kick her with my feet.
Su Xi didn’t hear the deception in Su Luo’s words. She wrinkled her eyebrows in displeasure.
“Then how could she have ended up this way without reason?” Su Xi angrily asked.
In her eyes, her mom’s right hand Nanny Gui was obviously more important than this Fourth Elder Sister Su Luo.
Su Luo’s innocent face, containing an expression of ‘you ask me who am I to ask’, gently moved her lips. She thought about it and hesitantly said. “Just when Nanny Gui was walking she accidentally hit the wall. After that, she fainted. It was really weird.”
“How is that possible! Fourth sister, when you lie, don’t you even write a rough draft?” Su Xi sneered again as her shady eyes stared at Su Luo.
Su Luo helplessly replied: “Who really knows? Even if you don’t believe me, there is nothing I can do. But recently a lot of unlucky things happening in the manor is real. This morning, I heard the servants outside saying that a ghost came out of the lotus pond. They say that the ghost, looks ferocious, with a wide bloody mouth….”
Lotus pond being haunted…. These words stabbed at Su Xi’s heart. Because if it was really haunted, than that ghost was her, Su Xi.
“Shut up!” As Su Xi thought about yesterday’s embarrassment, her face start to color with anger. She quickly change the subject. “Okay, since Nanny Gui wants to faint, then let her faint. Quickly. ome with me to the main hall to greet the crown prince.”
Su Xi did consider the possibility that Su Luo did the deed, but not even a single trace of battle was in the room. Also Su Luo was a good-for-nothing, how can she possibly be a match for Nanny Gui, who was a second step Warrior? So she directly ruled out the possibility that Su Luo was the attacker.
SInce it couldn’t be explained clearly, then she’ll just ignore it and drop it.
Su Xi allowed no explanation and dragged Su Luo out with her. She was afraid that Su Luo would run away if she let go. If that happened, then the person who would suffer a loss would be her, Su Xi.
Because breaking off this engagement required Su Luo to be physically present; it required her to hear the imperial decree with her own ears to complete the ceremony.
Su Luo coldly turned her head and glanced at Nanny Gui.
She originally worked hard for Su Xi, but in the end, didn’t she just get casually discarded? She wondered how Nanny Gui would feel after waking up and finding out about how Su Xi easily abandoning her.
Su Manor Main Hall.
The main hall was extremely large. The floor was covered in red carpet. There were two rows of eight seats on each side, each was made from the precious Purple Fir Wood and gave off a natural gorgeous, luxurious and expensive air.
The reason why the Purple Fir Wood was expensive, was because it only grew in the Dark Forest, where many magical beasts roamed. Thus, the transportation cost for the wood was prohibitively expensive.
Only similarly powerful and wealth families like the Su Manor could extravagantly afford to make furniture out of the wood.
