Chapter 40: A Cold and Merciless Viper
Wenxi walked too anxious to miss the most important news.
“I come here just to tell you one thing. Suxue asked me to help her find some killers to assassinate Bai Aoxue, and I have contacted some. They will do it tonight!” Bai Lei looked at Su Qianqian and said coldly.
“What are you talking about?! How could Suxue be so impatient! And you even allow her to mess things up!” Su Qianqian said fiercely while came forward to grab Bai Lei’s collar.
Bai Lei looked at Su Qianqian whose behaviors were crazy and pushed Su Qianqian impatiently: “You are the one who make Suxue the way she is! I just came here today to inform you this news. Please behave yourself!”
Bai Lei was about to leave when he finished his words.
But how could Su Qianqian allow him to? Su Qianqian rushed forward to Bai Lei and said: “You’d better made it clear today. Otherwise, you can’t leave!”
Su Qianqian was extremely mad at Bai Lei. How did Bai Lei dare to treat her like this in the past? But now, what Bai Lei has done made Su Qianqian feel at a loss.
Su Qianqian only wished that Bai Lei could apologize to her, so that she could act as nothing has happened.
“Su Qianqian, put away your aggressive character. When Suxue was born, I said that we should leave to live a peaceful life, while you didn’t want to. You sacrificed our family for your prosperity and shameful vanity! Now, since no one can turn back, we should take a plunge!” Bai Lei looked at Su Qianqian and said calmly.
There was no love in those eyes anymore.
Su Qianqian was shocked by Bai Lei’s words, but she could not deny. Bai Lei was all right. It was she who did not want to leave. It was all because of her.
She used to be one of Bai Qiwei’s concubines, but she hooked up with the housekeeper and even was pregnant. She was also favored by Bai Qiwei since she was pregnant.
The love of Bai Qiwei made her lose her identity. She thus fell in love with right which could control everything, and the feeling of standing high above the masses.
After she gave birth to Bai Suxue, she could not live without everything of Prime Minister’s mansion. She loved the life of having such a high status. She could not live the life of those ordinary people!
And she began to squander Bai Lei’s love unscrupulously.
“Alas!” Bai Lei looked at the stunned Su Qianqian. After sighing heavily, he left the hell without looking back.
Su Qianqian looked at Bai Lei’s leave but could not do anything.
Tears already covered her cheeks.
Bai Aoxue, on the other side, just had dinner and prepared to list the properties that were taken away by Su Qianqian.
Standing in front of the desk, Bai Aoxue used ink that Mumian has already prepared to write.
She would definitely get back that antique shop since it belonged to Bai Aoxue. She must get back everything that belonged to Bai Aoxue.
They could be left for Mumian as dowries.
She could not stay in Chengxi forever. Until the end of her cooperation with Jun Yeyan, she would leave.
She definitely would take a good trip in this world in order not to waste the chance of transcendence.
But Mumian couldn’t be with her like this. From now on, she would start to find a good man to whom she could entrust Mumian. Only in this way could she leave without concern.
Sutian Continent was so big. There were so many places that she has never been to. She once thought about that she should live a free life in nature. Now how could she not prepare for her future since she could fulfill her dream?
Different from her who could do as she wished in her life, Mumian was a good girl. She sincerely hoped that Mumian could be happy instead of accompanying her, drifting from place to place and living a homeless life.
Thinking of this, Bai Aoxue also quickly listed a series of things left in the memory of the predecessor.
“Miss, are you resting? Wenxi has something to report!” Just as Bai Aoxue’s pen was moving swiftly like a dragon, Wenxi’s voice rang outside the door.
When Bai Aoxue heard the voice of Wenxi, she said without stopping the movements of her hands: “Come in.”
Wenxi listened to Bai Aoxue’s words, and then gently pushed the door. She went in after carefully checking around.
“Miss”, Wenxi stood behind Bai Aoxue and saluted.
And Bai Aoxue has been writing at the desk and did not turn around. She just asked: “What did you find?”
After listening to Bai Aoxue’s words, Wenxi only felt that Bai Aoxue was too complicated to see through. Or should she say could not be seen through at all.
People said that she was weak and incompetent. However, in these two days, she only saw cold-hearted, calmness, composure, cunning and changeable from Bai Aoxue.
Just like now, Bai Aoxue had her back to her. She may be able to guess the expression of Bai Aoxue but can’t guess Bai Aoxue’s emotion.
No longer thinking, Wenxi looked at the back of Bai Aoxue and said: “Miss, I followed your dispatch to the ancestral hall and saw the housekeeper of Prime Minister’s mansion enter the ancestral hall.”
After Wenxi finished, she wanted to see how Bai Aoxue would react.
But Bai Aoxue only slightly raised up her eyebrows after listening to Wenxi’s words, her pen still moving.
“Oh? Then? You didn’t finish. Continue.” Bai Aoxue said without special attention.
Listening to the faint voice of Bai Aoxue, Wenxi completely understood. Bai Aoxue wouldn’t have other expressions if even the sky collapsed.
“I heard from the words of Steward Bai and Mrs. Su. They… Mrs. Su and Steward Bai…they…” Wenxi was a bit embarrassed. After all, such a scandal was embarrassing from anyone’s mouth.
And Bai Aoxue was also a member of Prime Minister’s mansion. Even if Bai Aoxue hated Su Qianqian, she would still be influenced.
Listening to the hesitated voice of Wenxi, Bai Aoxue knew that it might be something shameful.
“What’s wrong? Is there anything that is difficult to say?” Bai Aoxue asked faintly.
Wenxi looked at Bai Aoxue’s petite figure and made up her mind: “Mrs. Su and Steward Bai have hooked up a long time ago. Bai Suxue, your sister, was actually their child!”
Wenxi said the news in one breath, and suddenly felt a relief.
“They deceived everyone. Bai Suxue was not the child of Prime Minister Bai. They had a dispute in the ancestral hall today, therefore they spilled the beans.” Wenxi continued after a pause.
After finishing her words, Wenxi looked at Bai Aoxue without blinking.
And Bai Aoxue felt the news exciting when she listened to Wenxi’s words.
But it wasn’t exciting enough to shock her.
After all, in such an era, men had wife and concubines. There always some women who were left out and then hooked up with servants secretly behind their husbands. It couldn’t be more normal.
Bai Aoxue finally finished the list. She slowly put down the pen in her hand and turned to look at Wenxi.
Wenxi saw Bai Aoxue turning around, thinking that Bai Aoxue may be shocked, angry and embarrassed.
But in the next second, when she saw the expression of Bai Aoxue, the shocked person became Wenxi.
Perhaps Bai Aoxue, who stood in front of her, wouldn’t have other expressions in addition to indifference. Then now, Bai Aoxue’s eyes were like curved crescents after listening to this news.
Bai Aoxue was actually happy in her heart. This news was enough for her to prevent Su Qianqian and her gang from making a turn. Besides, it could also give Bai Qiwei a heavy blow.
She was quite happy, so Bai Aoxue showed a rare sincere smile.
Wenxi was shunned by Bai Aoxue’s smile.
Bai Aoxue in front of her eyes was extraordinarily gorgeous. Although Bai Aoxue was very beautiful when she was indifferent, now Bai Aoxue’s smile reminded people of melting snow.
The phoenix-like eyes turned into crescents. The sunlight seeping in through window shined on Bai Aoxue. Her robe was red like a fire and her ink-like hair was soft and flowing, making her whole person unreal.
However, Wenxi felt a little cold-hearted. She didn’t know what would make a people like Bai Aoxue feel sad.
If she used to think that she was cold, now cold-blooded could also be added.
Although Bai Aoxue was laughing, Wenxi has seen the thrilling cold light from her seductive eyes.
She was like a snake which has long been aiming at her prey. Her cold eyes seemed to be highly poisonous. Her body was icy and even so was her blood.
Bai Aoxue was such a person. Her skin was made of ice and snow. She was beautiful and attractive. Perhaps others would saw her as a snow lotus in full blossom on top of the snowy mountains at the first glance.
In fact, she was the cold-blooded snake which had cold skin and was fickle.
In this world, in addition to prey, perhaps nothing would be noticed by her eyes and her heart.
Bai Aoxue looked at the Wenxi who was in a daze: “This news really helped me a lot. Don’t worry; I will put in a good word for you in front of His Majesty.”
Wenxi, who was in a trance, felt worse because of what Bai Aoxue said. She did not expect that Bai Aoxue had already seen through her thoughts.
“Thank thank thank…thank you, Miss.” Wenxi said with tremble.
She suddenly found that Bai Aoxue actually shared too many similarities with Jun Wuhen.
“If there is nothing else, you could go back. Keep spying at Su Qianqian. I hope that no mistakes are made. This time, I will send them an unforgettable big gift!” Bai Aoxue said with a slight smile.
After listening to Bai Aoxue’s words and saluting silently, Wenxi quickly retreated.
Bai Aoxue, who was originally planning to rest, remembered something that had been put aside. Finding it still early, she then quickly got out of the yard.
Bai Aoxue, who left, didn’t let Mumian and others know.
At this time, Bai Aoxue was going to the antique shop in capital which was taken by Su Qianqian.
Although she said that she intended to get Bai Aoxue’s things back, it was still necessary to investigate. After all, she was now weak. It could help her see the situation.
She didn’t intend to rely on the power of Jun Yeyan unless there was no other way.
Leaving from the backyard of Prime Minister’s mansion, Bai Aoxue walked along the alleys. Now, it was not appropriate for her to appear in front of the public too much.
Bai Aoxue walked for a distance and found some abnormalities behind her. At the first place, she thought it was a group of hooligans, so she didn’t think much.
But now, Bai Aoxue found that at least three people were following her.
Everyone was trained. They walked so quietly that barely made sounds. If it wasn’t because of her years of vigilance and sensitivity, it may be difficult for her to notice.
Bai Aoxue also knew that those comers were not friends. Besides, she chose small alleys today. These people were obviously well prepared.
Thinking of this, Bai Aoxue didn’t move but stopped.
“Follow me for so long. Aren’t you going to come out?” Bai Aoxue turned around, looking at the dark alleys and smiling faintly.
And when Bai Aoxue finished, three masked men came out from the dark.
“Would you want to take my life? Let me think about who your hirer is?” Bai Aoxue looked at these men and teased.
Finding Bai Aoxue have no trace of fear, these men got confused.
“Bai Suxue or Bai Lei?” Bai Aoxue did not care about the changes of them but said to herself.
“However, it doesn’t matter. Because none of you will leave alive!” when she finished, each five fingers of Bai Aoxue curved into claws and rushed to the three like gliding.
