Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 40
Bai Ling nodded his head and picked up a pair of chopsticks. He prepared to act at a crucial time.
XunMi looked at the noisy crowd below her, silently thinking about how much these resembled a food market.
“Who are you.” The storyteller came back to his senses, immediately remembering how this woman had interrogated him.
“I am the ugly, viciously intended Wenren XunMi you were speaking of.” Stepping further down the staircase, she continued, “Even though I don’t know when I, Princess RouJia, became like this, I still must thank you for letting me know that behind my back so many people were jealous of me.” Wenren XunMi had her own pride. As a talented noblewoman, she would never bend her proud spine. Moreover, she was now the Princess RouJia, a title personally gifted by the emperor. So why would she throw aside her self-respect?
An commotion sounded through the crowd. They had made so many guesses regarding her identity, yet they hadn’t dared to guess that this woman would actually be the subject of their conversation. As their IQ came back on line, they began to think about what they were just doing. Weren’t their actions the equivalent of saying the emperor had bad eyesight? That was a crime that could be punished with a beheading!
The storyteller himself was also blank. He had felt danger emitting from XunMi. He was a bit terrified to feel this upper class nobility from someone that he held disdain for.
“Guards, come take this sir away. Investigate him under charges of slandering a princess, questioning the decisions of the emperor, and spreading false claims.” Two guards came in and dragged the storyteller away. The loud complaints of the storyteller was abruptly ceased by a hand over his mouth.
XunMi sighed with relief and prepared to leave when she felt a brush of wind along with a gasp of shock. “Young Miss, be careful!”
” Big Sister!” Hearing sounds of people inhaling and sucking in their breath, XunMi was still a bit puzzled.
What happened? Xiao Xiang’s face was still stuck in alarm while her little brother revealed his fright. Wait, how come her vision was so clear? Fuck, where was her muslin veil? Who did this, who would be such an asshole as to lift her hat? Didn’t they know that veil was a product of the system? It cost her a lot of points, okay. If it was damaged, where did they want her to go to complain?
XunMi, who still hadn’t completely understand the situation, was busy bemoaning in her mind and completely missed the reactions of those around her. She painfully picked up the veil from the ground, lightly patting it as her voice coldly rang out, “Don’t you know carelessly touching a woman is a discourteous thing? You really have left an impression on me.” Damn it, the veil really was damaged. Her points were gone for nothing. Her heart was heavy, she needed consoling.
Standing at the third floor window and maintaining his position after shooting out his chopstick, Bai Ling’s face had already turned to red. By his side, Nangong Muchen and Guan ShengQing also had their eyes wide open in disbelief. This was the person they had said was too afraid to show herself in public? This was the Wenren XunMi that FeiFei said was jealous of her beauty? Who could tell them whether they were seeing realty or an illusion?
With such an appearance, why would she be afraid of showing herself in public, why would she be jealous of others? Her captivating peach blossom eyes alone could have men falling on their knees at her feet.
Currently, that angry gaze added color to her spirited eyes, amplifying her unlimited beauty. If she was considered ugly, then there would be no pretty women on earth.
“I’m…I’m sorry, Miss Wenren. It was not deliberate. I’m sorry.” Bai Ling spoke unsmoothly, feeling even more embarrassed as she attentively gazed at her veil. “Since I ruined your veil, how about I give you another?” It seemed like she really liked that veil. Since he had so impudently damaged it, she must be very upset.
“My wangfei does not need your help.” Zongzheng Mufeng walked forward with a darkened face. He had woken up early to see his belle, only to find that she had already left. When he quickly made his over, he found his belle disobediently attracting bees and butterflies. The thing that made him want to kill someone was that this damned man dared to seduce his belle. Was he tired of living?
The scene sank into a state of silence. In capital city, no one didn’t know of this man.
When Bai Ling saw An wang, he panicked. He couldn’t let An wang find out that he was the crown prince’s secret guard.
“Belle, it’s only been a day and you’ve provoked so many houseflies for me to smack? Tell me, how should I punish you?” Zongzheng Mufeng was really angry. Yet he couldn’t bare to be angry at his belle, so he could only be angry at himself. He acted too slow. If he was quicker, then he would have gotten rid of those moth-like things already.
XunMi smiled lightly, is her husband jealous? It was quite a sight. But he shouldn’t be too jealous, or else going crazy with jealous wouldn’t good.
“Then, my punishment would be treating Prince to tea at the Duke’s estate. As thanks, would An wang be willing to gift me a veil?” She raised her veil, giving off a playfully distressed smile.
In an instant, Zongzheng Mufeng’s anger disappeared like air leaving a balloon. “I’ll gift myself to you as thanks. A veil is not enough.” He took the veil from XunMi and handed it over to An Yi, ordering him to buy a few similar veils. In regards to his belle’s decision to wear a veil, he could only raise both hands and feet in support. How could her beauty be seen by these kind of people?
The two left laughing cheerfully, leaving a stupefied audience and numerous stunned men on the third floor.
“This woman really was Wenren XunMi? Can somone pinch me?”
“Wow, today I’ve finally seen for myself what ‘beautiful capable of causing the downfall of an empire’ means!”
“To be honest, the Eldest Miss can’t compare in terms of beauty.”
“Who spread those rumors?”
“I think they came out of the Prime Minister’s estate.”
“It seems like it was Eldest Miss’ closest maid who said that the legitimate daughter, the Second Miss, was bullying the Eldest Miss and was jealous of her.”
There was too much sensational news today. They needed to go share this with others.
“Even standing so far away, I still can’t forget her bright eyes.” Bai Ling muttered, unsure whether he was speaking to himself or to the others.
“If this woman-unless she’s hidden herself well- isn’t as malicious as Feifei said she was, then that means…” Nangong Muchen didn’t finish the rest of his sentence, but the two people listening understood. Even if their hearts were biased towards FeiFei, they still had logic.
As the prime minister’s legitimate daughter, wasn’t she already noble? Possessing such a magnificence, why would she need to make herself dirty and ugly?
“Then why would FeiFei tell us differently?” Guan ShengQing hesitatingly asked. The three of them all liked FeiFei because she was kindhearted and adorable. But that didn’t mean they were willing to be deceived.
