Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 54
“Hey, did you hear? There’s a special woman in the brothel.”
“I already heard. I even know the woman, she was once called Wenren Yunfei.”
“Wow, she can’t really be that shameless? Isn’t she the number one beauty?”
“Only a brothel would be able to support this kind of woman.”
“Didn’t she use to be the prime minister estate’s eldest miss? What happened?”
“You might not know. Wenren Yunfei’s mother was actually a beauty from a brothel too.”
“The one that was really popular before disappear into thin air?”
“No wonder. With that kind of mother, it wouldn’t be hard to understand how this woman is also like that.”
As the two walked, they heard that the majority of the people were chatting about the same thing. There was only one main lead in all of their stories: Wenren Yunfei.
XunMi was a bit puzzled. What happened? It hadn’t even been two days. How did this Wenren Yunfei put herself into a brothel? A brothel in ancient times was the equivalent of modern day’s redlight district. But if you want to escape the brothel, you’ll first need to have someone willing to help you. Even then, it’s hard to say if you can successful secure a peaceful life for yourself afterwards.
“Is there anything Prince needs to tell me?” XunMi smiled at the man sitting across from her. She didn’t miss the obvious disdain and hatred on his face.
“She wanted to get someone to ruin your face, so I had someone ruin hers. Afterwards, I gave her a skin mask that resembled her original face and left her in the brothel. Since she is so lacking of men, I wanted to be the good person and help her out.” Zongzheng Mufeng was honest and spoke innocently.
“Hahaha…” XunMi snorted, her husband was so cute. If only he wasn’t so perverted, then he would be absolutely perfect.
“Yes, you’re right. Since the female lead had already fallen to this level, the mission should be pretty much done. But there were still those few men. She had originally planned to steal them away from her. However, she discovered that those men were all braindead, they can create trouble on their own. They didn’t need her to add fuel to the fire.
“Nangong Muchen’s entire savings have just about been spent. It’s near impossible for him to try to rebuild Nangong family’s business. Guan Shengqing spends his whole day wondering where his kindhearted fairy has gone. His father has completely lost hope in him. Bai Ling has also given up. Out of those three, he’s living the best currently.
Belle, tell me. If the crown prince knew that his previous crown princess even tangled with his secret guard, what do you think he would do?” Zongzheng Mufeng played with his teacup with a mischievous expression on his face.
XunMi raised her eyebrows, “It would be an exciting reaction. I’m quite itching to see it. The crown prince is preparing to rebel. If he found out that he has been completely betrayed at this crucial time, it would definitely be very interesting.” Because of her interference, Wenren Yunfei wasn’t able to continue on her original path. She didn’t seduce the grand general. Naturally, the grand general and the other men were then unable to provide the crown prince with support now. If he wanted to successfully seize the throne, the crown prince would need all of the power of the main leads’ halo.
“It’s getting late. Let’s go home.” Zongzheng Mufeng supported his Belle up. The two walked out side by side.
Nearby, a man sat at a table, silently watching their disappearing figures with a gloomy expression.
“You’re not going to say hi?” Zongzheng Mufeng quietly asked.
XunMi smiled, “No need. It was only a small act of kindness anyway.” She knew that Xiao Jing had done a lot for her behind the scenes. For example, the news of Wenren Yunfei and her men’s behavior in the outskirts of town had been able to travel so fast and ferociously because he had been helping to spread it.
Zongzheng Mufeng didn’t speak. He had investigated Xiao Jing’s identity on the first day. If not because he was doing so much to protect his Belle, he would have already gotten ride of this love rival.
Three Days Later.
On a moonless, windy night, the crown prince played the bugle horn signal. For the whole night, the palace was well lit, blood dyed the flowers red, and corpses piled on the roads.
Taking advantage of this time, the emperor used the crown prince’s hand to eliminate those disloyal, uncontrollable court officials. During morning court the next day, when the emperor still hadn’t showed up, the court began to panic.
Everyone had heard the big movements from last night but they had all been to scared to get involved. Moreover, the emperor had already ordered to seal off the entire palace. Even if they wanted to contribute, they didn’t have an opportunity.
In the imperial study room, Zongzheng Mufeng sat on the side, with the crown prince pathetically kneeling in the center of the room. The emperor had not arrived yet.
The crown prince couldn’t believe that, even with such a meticulously thought out plan, he had suffered a crushing defeat.
“If you can’t understand, then stop thinking about it. You’ll only make that stupid brain more stupid in the process.”
“It’s you, An wang. It must have been you.” The crown prince violently yelled. He had been on the verge of success. Just one more step and he would have been able to sit in that throne. But in the end…
Zongzheng Mufeng looked down at his nephew, “You are delusion if you thought someone like you could sit in the throne.”
As a crown prince, he never understood to cultivate his moral character or his image. Instead, he greedily thought of that throne that was to be his sooner or later, even doing something that had completely ruined his own future. Zongzheng Mufeng really didn’t know how the imperial family’s genes had cultivated such stupidity.
“The throne was always mine to take, I was just speeding the process along. What’s wrong with that? I know that An wang also wants sit in that throne, right? Unfortunately, you are only an An wang, you’ll never have that opportunity.” The crown prince was already delusional, even daring to boast so shamelessly in the imperial study room. His expression that said ‘I am the greatest, I am right, if you don’t agree then you are wrong’ really made people want to punch him in the face.
Zongzheng Mufeng didn’t feel like talking to someone without a brain. Seeing his imperial brother coming in, he quickly excused himself. He was afraid that if he stayed any longer, he wouldn’t be able to hold back the urge the little scum of a crown prince.
He arrived back at his estate, smiling when he saw his Belle. Her soft and warm smile in the spring breeze immediately cured away his anger.
He reached out and pulled her into his arms, sighing contently. “My Belle is the best.”
