Chapters 50 - 50
And Lan Xiu, after leaving Lin Ruo Xi's courtyard, had returned to the Grand Lady's residence. Seeing the Grand Lady sitting alone at the table, she went up to greet him.
"Lan Xiu is back? What happened to that girl Ruoxi? " Although Grand Lady's tone was calm, her eyes were filled with worry.
Lan Xiu was also considering whether she should speak out the words of the doctor just now, when she heard the words of the Grand Lady, "Is it very serious? Lan Xiu, don't you think I'm too heartless? "
"No, Eldest Miss did something wrong, so she naturally has to be punished. Grand Lady doesn't need to think too much into it. Just a moment ago, Lan Xiu went over to ask around, and Qing He said that Eldest Miss was fine. " Lan Xiu walked behind Grand Lady and massaged her shoulders.
The Grand Lady heaved a sigh of relief, "It's good that you're alright, otherwise I would really have something on my mind."
"Grand Lady, it's said that there is one thing that is very strange." Lan Xiu decided to say it out.
"What is it?"
Lan Xiu repeated the doctor's words to Grand Lady, and then asked: "Doesn't Grand Lady feel that it's strange? Why is Qing He hiding this from me? "
Grand Lady didn't answer Lan Xiu. After pondering for a while, she only muttered to herself, "Looks like this matter isn't over yet."
However, things did not go according to what the Grand Lady or Lin Ruo Yin thought. Three days had passed and Lin Ruo Xi's courtyard had still not made a sound. It was so quiet that people almost forgot about their existence.
Lv Yu took Lin Ruo Yin's medicine from the kitchen and was about to bring it back to her room for Lin Ruo Yin to drink, but she kept feeling that someone was staring at her. But when she turned around, the people in the kitchen were all busy with their own things. No one cared about her at all.
"Strange, could it be that we've run into evil?" Lv Yu was so frightened by her own thoughts that she quickly carried the medicine outside.
When they passed by the garden, they heard someone talking about something interesting, so they wanted to go over and listen too. When they went back to their rooms, they would tell the story to the Miss. But who would have thought that when they just walked a little closer, they would hear that the one they were talking about was none other than her Miss.
"Do you know? So the cosmetician was called over by the Third Miss. "
"So the most poisonous thing was actually the Third Miss."
"Yeah, everyone says that the more beautiful a woman is, the more vicious her heart is. That's right."
Everyone was discussing amongst themselves, and did not notice Lv Yu who had already walked over to them.
"Hey, what are you guys talking about? My Miss is the best, you are not allowed to speak ill of her. " Lv Yu set the medicine aside and stuck it in her waist to defend her Miss.
As if they did not expect that they would be caught spouting malicious words, these people turned around in embarrassment, realizing that Lv Yu was the only one who looked down on her.
"Everyone in the palace is saying that Third Miss was the one who brought cosmetician here, and it was her who deliberately framed Eldest Miss." Someone was the first to speak.
"That's right, the people of the Eldest Miss are so kind, and treat me so well. How can you do such a thing? It must be because the Third Miss found someone to cast some spell on the Eldest Miss that they ended up like this. " Someone quickly echoed.
"You are all spouting nonsense. You must have obtained the benefits from the Eldest Miss and are now slandering our family's Miss." Lv Yu was so angry by their words that she almost burst out smoke, but she didn't know how to speak as much as Miss and Hong Mei, other than shouting that they wronged their enemies, she really didn't know what to say.
Seeing Lv Yu trying to protect her own Miss, someone laughed out softly and said: "I see that you are still young, so I kindly reminded you that you don't know your own limits, and that your Miss might want to deal with you next."
"You're lying!" When Lv Yu got anxious, the Miss would not want to kick her out.
"Lv Yu, you little girl, you were really tricked by your Miss. Did you know that when she was locked in the woodshed that night, your Miss went to the woodshed?"
"Liar, Miss never walked out of his room that day." Lv Yu remembered clearly that Miss had gone to bed early.
"You are really stupid, can you guard your Miss for an entire night? Even the doctor said that Eldest Miss's body was covered with whip wounds, but the old master had only given him a stick, where did the whip wounds come from? Other than your Miss, who else could it be? " Someone spoke in a clear and straightforward manner, making Lv Yu unable to say a single word.
At this moment, someone shouted, "Senior Sister Lan Xiu is here."
When everyone heard that it was Lan Xiu the Goddess, they knew that she hated being talked about by her servants the most. If they were to say a few words in front of Grand Lady, they wouldn't be able to stay any longer.
In just a blink of an eye, everyone had dispersed, leaving only Lv Yu alone, who was still fuming in anger.
"You're still not leaving?" A male voice came from behind him. Lv Yu turned around and saw that it was Xiao Bei.
Lv Yu was extremely happy when she saw Xiao Bei. She thought for a while and asked, "So it was you just now? You helped us again. "
Xiao Bei glanced at Lv Yu, but he did not have any intention to talk to her. Just as he was about to return to the kitchen, he saw Lin Ruo Yin walking over from afar.
The wound on her face had almost completely healed, and it was almost impossible to see. As Xiao Bei watched her slowly walk closer, he was actually stunned and he even forgot to greet her.
"Why are you here?" Lin Ruo Yin was grateful to Xiao Bei, but seeing him like this, she felt that he had some kind of power, hence his voice was also a little cold.
Seeing Miss like this, Lv Yu remembered that he had helped him just now, so she walked over and said: "Miss, just now there were a few people speaking ill of Miss, Lv Yu was so angry that she almost got into conflict with them. Luckily Xiao Bei helped me."
Hearing Lv Yu's words, Lin Ruo Yin finally looked straight at him. The thing that impressed her the most was that pair of eyes. If it weren't for those eyes, she wouldn't have saved him on the spur of the moment. However, he had long since returned her kindness.
"Thank you so much." Lin Ruo Yin said to Xiao Bei as she softened her tone.
Xiao Bei finally regained his senses and thought back to how he looked just now. He lowered his head in embarrassment and said: "Miss is joking."
"Are you joking?" Lin Ruo Yin's tone was slightly raised, as if she was not satisfied, and said while looking at him: "I was very serious. If it wasn't for you last time, I would have had my face disfigured. Come to think of it, I really should thank you properly. "
"This is what I should do, not to mention that the Miss is my savior." Xiao Bei finally raised his head and looked at Lin Ruo Yin.
Lin Ruo Yin looked into his eyes. The profoundness within them seemed to be like the vast starry sky.
At this moment, the atmosphere was rather delicate. And the one who destroyed all of that was none other than Lv Yu who did not know how to judge the situation, she suddenly screamed: "Ah, the Miss's medicine is cold!"
Facing such a Lv Yu, Lin Ruo Yin could only laugh helplessly, telling her to quickly cook another bowl, and then return to her room.
"Miss, wait a moment." Xiao Bei suddenly called out to her.
