Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack - Chapter 273
Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 273
Nian WenHao frowned. “Is there anything special about that young lady?”
If he didn’t ask, his heart couldn’t settle down.
“Reporting, sir. The lady seems to have just returned from studying overseas.” The soldier shut his mouth after speaking. As for the matter of her fighting on even grounds with their Marshal, and especially what their Marshal liked, he wouldn’t say. That he answered this commanding officer’s words was only because these things had already become well known by everyone during the day.
In order to be capable of serving at the Bandit Marshal’s side, even the small soldiers had to be quick-witted. Especially the guards at his front gate, after all, must understand how to weigh other’s words and observe facial expressions to know who to confront and how to respond.
Nian WenHao wanted to rush in directly. Someone who had just returned from studying overseas—who else could it be besides his little sister?
A raging flame ignited in the pit of his stomach, but there was nowhere to vent.
“I want to see your Marshal. Just say Nian family’s Nian WenHao is visiting.”
Damn it! Damn it! This damned bandit! First thing he snatched up their Nian family’s darling. Really asking for a slap in the face!
The soldier returned to the gate to stand motionlessly. He spoke again, his tone remaining respectful: “I’m sorry, sir, the Marshal is already resting, and he has ordered that he will not be seeing any guests. He’d ask sir to please come again tomorrow morning.” He bowed to Nian Wenhao and responsibly and diligently resumed standing guard.
Nian WenHao was about to burst with rage, but there was no other way. He couldn’t just force his way in. Not to mention, he was afraid of hurting ShuRong. The gun in his hand only had four rounds, which was not enough.
Had he known when he left the garrison today, he would have brought the latest Browning equipment.
He angrily pulled Nian ShuRong away and left. He would come back again tomorrow.
XunMi was unaware of the matters concerning the Nian family. When she awoke, she felt full of vitality.
When she opened the door, she saw a small leather suitcase in the doorway. En, she knew that this had been brought back by her body’s original owner. It seemed that after the bandit had kidnapped her yesterday, someone had retrieved the things she had dropped. Not bad.
As soon as she brought the suitcase inside, someone knocked on the door. XunMi turned and opened the door. There stood two serving girls, one holding water and the other holding toiletries. She let them in.
“Miss, this slave is called YuLan. Whatever you need in the future, do not hesitate to tell me.” The serving girl wearing a pink linen dress and her hair in two sheep horn braids bowed to XunMi and introduced herself.
“Miss, this slave is called ShuiXian. I will take care of you together with YuLan Jiejie.” Another girl in the same pink linen dress and two sheep horn braids who looked more lively than the previous YuLan also spoke.
XunMi nodded, “I am Nian XunMi.”
“What, you are Miss Nian?!” The two girls exclaimed simultaneously. Their eyes were opened wide in astonishment. There’s no way their reaction wouldn’t be noticed by XunMi.
“En? Is there a problem?” She could see from this body’s memory that the original was a very clever and lovable child.
YuLan and ShuiXian knew that they had overreacted and quickly explained, “No, no.”
YuLan continued, “Both I and ShuiXian are locals from Li Hua Province, so we are familiar with the people and matters of Li Hua Province. The Nian family is very well-known, and we also know of the Nian family’s young miss. In particular, about Miss Nian, Nian XunMi, known as Li Hua Province’s number one treasured daughter. We have all been fortunate to hear of your past achievements. So we were surprised just now. We hope the young miss can forgive us.”
YuLan and ShuiXian prepared to kneel, but XunMi swiftly stopped them and pulled them up.
“I’m not such a petty person. I don’t have many rules here. You just have to do your work well. You need not be afraid of me. I don’t eat people.” She couldn’t help but tease them. XunMi’s mood had improved.
She let the two serving girls prepare water for her, then she took a bath, changed clothes, and went downstairs.
She was going to find her husband who had become a bandit marshal. She also remembered what was forgotten yesterday, that her parents were still waiting for her.
She had suddenly disappeared yesterday without warning. It could be assumed that they were very anxious.
In addition, there was also the relationship between the original body and the Female Lead. From the original story, it could be seen that the Female Lead was a daughter of the Nian family.
What about her original body then? What was her identity?
“Ziju BaiLin, don’t bully people too much! You dared to kidnap my little sister!” As she reached the top of the stairs, XunMi heard the somewhat familiar angry voice below.
Searching through her memory, she immediately placed it. It was the voice of the original body’s older brother.
She was very satisfied with her original body’s relatives this time. The two households had peaceful and amicable relations. This kind of family affection was really nice.
Leaning on the railing, she listened quietly to the developments below, and in passing took a look at her inventory.
She opened the control panel and found that the content had been updated.

She looked in heartbroken silence as her inventory held fewer and fewer things.
But what the heck was that weapon manufacturing? Don’t tell her she had to research artillery?
“Goddamnit! Ziju BaiLin, do you have the guts to fight with me?!”
Nian WenHao was completely out of control. He’d tried to reason with him in every way possible, but this bandit wouldn’t let his sister come out, let alone let him see his sister and take her home.
Thinking about it, he felt sad. He unexpectedly did not have the qualifications to be his own little sister’s big brother.
“Nian WenHao, you are not my opponent. Get lost. My wife is mine, don’t think about it.”
Ziju BaiLin didn’t give Nian WenHao any face. He was the one who came to steal his wife. What place did politeness have?
Look, this is the thinking of a bandit. Clearly he’s just XunMi’s brother.
The two masters of the Nian family were also red in the face with anger. Fortunately, they did not bring the three women today, otherwise who knows what would come of that anger.
“Marshal Ziju, we respect you as a war hero. You like our daughter. Yes, you can get married if you want to. But you can’t just kidnap someone like that, and take my daughter by force regardless of her wishes. If my daughter were willing, then even if you were a beggar, I, Nian BingRong, would not oppose it. But if my daughter is not willing, then even if you are the Warlord Marshal who controls the entire Western Region, my Nian family would definitely never compromise.”
 So as far as I can make out, this hairstyle is like Dutch braid pigtails. Here’s a picture of singer G.E.M. sporting the hairstyle.
 It’s common for serving girls to be given themed names. These girls are both named after flowers: YuLan’s name means magnolia and ShuiXian means daffodil.
 Jie, Jiejie, or Da Jie mean older sister. Blood relationship unnecessary, and here, unlikely.
 I’m really not sure about this last one. The first part is a phrase from the Book of Rites (a classic Confucian text), and the second part refers to a well-known encyclopedic dictionary. If I later find out what this is supposed to be, I’ll let y’all know.
