The palace maids jumped in fright. The storage ring was a very expensive and rare magic equipment.
"Princess, this servant noticed that your hand had nothing when we returned to the palace. Maybe, it was dropped along the streets?"
Princess Cang Xia turned pale, today's the Mountain Goods Day, with so many people visiting that place, god knows where she dropped it.
Wait, she remembered the ring was still on her when Huan Qing Yan covered her with the gunnysack, it must have dropped after that…
Princess Cang Xia shouted, "Quickly get men to search for it! That includes the corpses of those imbeciles, it might have been taken by them when this princess was unconscious."
"Also, Huan Qing Yan that b*tch is also highly suspicious, I lost the ring due to her attack on me, send some men to find her and get it back…"
At that moment, a servant reported from outside the palace building, "Your highness, Lady Huan Meng Yue wishes to meet you."
When Princess Cang Xia heard her name, a glint of anger flashed within her eyes. All of this started because of this woman called Huan Meng Yue, she was the one that gave the idea and suggested the circumstance on when to strike! These led her to experience this disgraceful incident today; being called the concubine of this man-loving Hu San as well as being beaten up was the greatest disgrace she had ever felt in her life.
"Are all of you dead? Quickly arrange a bath and cosmetics for this princess…"
The palace maids holding on to warm bathwater were already on standby outside the building, upon her words, they quickly entered and serve her.
Huan Meng Yue waited outside for quite a while, the servant doing the reporting did not come out.
She understood that Princess Cang Xia was angry at her for the incident.
But she herself was not frustrated, her face continued to display a calm disposition.
Only after an hour had passed did the servant come out to bring her in.
Within the palace building, Princess Cang Xia was wearing various gold and silver jewelry, displaying a luxurious image that would astound people.
"Greetings, your highness." Huan Meng Yue performed a deep bow.
Princess Cang Xia replied in a bad mood, "Huan Meng Yue, are you here to laugh at this princess? You learnt about what happened to this princess today already? I warn you, if you dare to spread word about today's incident…"
Seeing that the princess did not even serve tea nor ask her to seat and instead, warned Huan Meng Yue immediately after meeting her, Huan Meng Yue casually walked over the debris on the floor and stood beside the princess, "Princess, please rest assured. Meng Yue belongs to Lord Ninth, while Lord Ninth is your brother from the same mother, how could Meng Yue do such things to you?"
Princess Cang Xia's face was covered in a thick layer of cosmetics to hide her bruises, her face uncontrollably twitched due to pangs of pain as the cosmetics came in contact with her injuries.
"Then why are you here for?"
"Lord Ninth had also learnt about today's matter, he had instructed me to send you some ointment, this is the Nine Dew Congealing Rouge, it accelerates the recovery from bruises. I had also brought along some food that could boost the recovery of the body."
A servant carrying a large box was following Huan Meng Yue when she visited. Upon hearing Huan Meng Yue's words, the servant quickly opened the box and displayed the items.
Princess Cang Xia expression only turned slightly better.
"Now that you mentioned Ninth Brother, I am beginning to feel angry again. His token is in the hands of that b*tch! It is because of his token that allowed that b*tch to turn the situation around! On top of that, woman, your scheme is a total failure and not enough to trap Huan Qing Yan. That b*tch is not only exceptionally cunning, she also has a way with words. It caused this princess to experience a great loss. Now, my good reputation is tarnished."
Cuppa: That’s all for today. Cya tomorrow!
