Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack - Chapter 31
Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 31
Wenren Yunfei had been desiring that phoenix pearl for a long time. It had been a gift bestowed by the emperor. There was no way Wenren YunFei wouldn’t come when this was used to lure her. This pair of scum man and woman had hurt the original XunMi so harshly. Thus, she’ll now let them know what the saying “one will treat you the way you treat them” means.
Something that made XunMi pleased was that the original soul had a similar personality as hers. The original had the additional feel of a well-balanced woman of ancient times, but she was also an independent, strong, and proud woman.
When she was done, she walked to the doorway fiddling with a spray bottle filled with knockout drops in her hand. She planned to greet Wenren YunFei with the mist as soon as she pushed open the door to enter.
Soon, footsteps could be heard from outside. XunMi’s lips curved into a demonic smile.
“Second younger sister, I heard that you wanted to give your big sister something. What is it?” Wenren Yunfei eagerly rushed in without even knocking on the door. The sight in the room before her didn’t even register yet before she heard a voice call out, “Big sister.”
Instinctively, she turned her head. A faint smell wavered into her nose. The last thing she saw before she sank into darkness was Wenren XunMi’s face.
Xiao Xiang had shut door the moment that Wenren YunFei entered the room. As her young miss’ trusted servant girl, she knew that young mistress definitely had something up her sleeve. “Young miss, why did you knock Eldest Miss unconscious?”
Although Xiao Xiang could guess a bit of the reason, she couldn’t entirely understand the reason for her young miss’ actions.
XunMi put back her knockout drops. “Xiao Xiang, quickly change her into the wedding clothing.” She also sprang into action, dragging the numerous matchmaker aunties on the ground to behind the folding screen. Xiao Xiang also moved quickly. By the time XunMi came back out, Wenren YunFei’s light pink long skirt had transformed into the bright red wedding dress. XunMi nodded her head in satisfaction: “Xiao Xiang, remember. From now on, that is your young miss, the Second Miss of the Prime Minister. When the crown prince and his entourage come, tell them that I had just chatted with my big sister and felt down-hearted about leaving the prime minister residence, causing me to fainting from the strain of crying.” In ancient times, no one would take off the veil before the traditional kneeling ceremony during the wedding. Even if anyone did, it was fine.
XunMi walked over to the dressing table, picking up the cinnabar inside the makeup box while observing the female lead. En, her looks are not bad. But they are still inferior to mine.
It was mainly because she didn’t have that natural innocence and yet still stubbornly attempted to fake it, causing her pretty face to lose much of its color. Meanwhile, XunMi’s face was glamorous. When she wasn’t smiling, she emitted a cold and elegant atmosphere. Once she smiled, a fresh and clean feeling would hit onlookers in the face. That small red birthmark under her right eye gave her extremely beautiful face an extra layer of uniqueness.
XunMi dabbed a dot of red onto the corner of Wenren YunFei’s right eye. Leaning back to admire her work, she placed the cinnabar down when she was satisfied with the view from the side profile.
“Young miss, don’t worry. I won’t let anyone notice anything. It’s just that…” She hesitated, looking at her all around outstanding, much more superior young miss with worry.
XunMi lightly rubbed Xiao Xiang’s head, smiling widely. “Xiao Xiang, you’ve been by my side for this long, you also know about the crown prince and my sister’s love affair. If I marry over, the only thing waiting for me is an abyss. As a good sister, I naturally should help them achieve what they truly want. For the time being, I’ll hide away. Tomorrow morning, I’ll pretend to have been kidnapped and run back from outside. If my mother comes in to talk, you must relay my message to her. Xiao Xiang, my life and freedom are in your hands. When everything is done, I’ll send you and mother back to the Duke’s estate. We won’t stay here to suffer.”
The prime minister estate was like a pool of quicksand. With one careless move, you would fall in, unable to ever get back up. Xiao Xiang solemnly nodded her head: “Young miss, don’t worry. Please be careful out there, young miss.”
Ever since she was bought by young miss, allowing her to escape the fate of being sent to brothels, Xiao Xiang had sworn to be loyal to young miss. Young miss was so good to her. Now that she had a chance to help young miss, she was very happy. “Xiao Xiang, you also must take care of yourself. Tomorrow I’ll come pick you up.” XunMi gave Xiao Xiang a quick hug, then rapidly stepped onto a stool and climbed out the side window.
Xiao Xiang then placed the stool back in its original spot. After making sure her young miss had safely left the yard, she shut the window. Coincidentally at the same moment, a knock came from the front door. Madam’s voice could be heard from outside. Xiao Xiang followed young miss’ instructions, bringing Madam before quickly passing on young miss’ words.
Shangguan Yan was a governmental official’s daughter, as well as the Duke’s legitimate daughter, married into the prime minister estate for 20some years. She had already lost affection for the prime minister. If not for her son and daughter, she would have already left to become a nun. This time around, she had heard of the crown prince and the Eldest Miss’ love affair. Yet, as the legal but not in favor wife of the prime minister, she didn’t have any say. Moreover, the other party was the crown prince, the emperor’s son. She thought she would be forced to watch her daughter jump into a pit of fire. She didn’t factor in how smart her daughter was, or that she would plan a switcheroo. She believed in her daughter’s abilities. Now that she could let go of her worries, all she had to do was wait for the time to pass.
Meanwhile. XunMi had escaped from the back garden, appearing in a small alley. Looking around, she was completely disoriented. She had met a group of guards on patrol near the door. In the pursuing chaos, she dodged into the neighboring family’s yard. After finding her way out of that yard with difficulty, she somehow ended up here. “BaoBao, come out. Didn’t you say you were useful? This is the time to display your use!! Give me a map, find Building 1.”
Her first order of business at Building 1 was leaving them a list. She needed someone to protect Xiao Xiang behind the scenes, while simultaneously monitoring Wenren YunFei. As a 21st century college student, her ideology and that of the people of this time shouldn’t be on the same wavelength. XunMi was worried that she wouldn’t do as those books say, where the transmigrating character creates guns and explosives. If that happened, then XunMi would really cry.
While the system was unlocking the difficulty levels of the worlds, it had also explained that if the host were to find any objects that exceeded the dimension during the mission, then the host must eliminate it. Or else, that world’s mission could only be counted as volunteer work. Fuck volunteer work. She put her hard work into doing the mission to gain points, not to do volunteer work!
She had already asked BaoBao why there would be such a provision. BaoBao explained that when things that exceed the dimension appear, it is very likely to lead to the collapse of that world.
[Crycrycry~~~ Host, there’s good news and there’s bad news. Which one do you want to hear first?] BaoBao feebly appeared in physical form and slowly floated towards XunMi.
XunMi’s forehead creased, gnashing her teeth to say: “Tell me the good news.”
[The good news is that I do have a map! I just haven’t enabled it…I can only give locate things. And to locate, I must first have their coordinates.]
Seeing his host’s face darken, BaoBao shivered in the air.
“Then is the bad news that you cannot locate Building 1?”
