Chapter 33 Lake tour
Don’t know who spread out Murong Qi Qi’s ‘A glance at the mundane world’. Now in the entire capital, no matter where you go, you will hear people hum: “I’m crying today but I’ll laugh tomorrow. This is hard to explain and you don’t know why I’m so proud……”
When they got to know that this song was sung by the primce minister’s rubbish third miss, the whole capital was stunned. Plus, those rumors that Su Mei released before, everyone thought it’s the truth!
It turned out that the evillest people are prime minister’s second miss and Jing wang 1 Longze Jing Tian! These two has long has a dark commitment and affair. It turned out that the most wronged person is third miss Murong!
Smarter people deduced many things from one case. Just thinking back at the rumors about Murong Qi Qi when she just returned to the capital, moving the brains a little, they guessed that it’s second miss who let them out to deliberately ruin third miss’s reputation! For a time, the citizens of the whole capital stood at Murong Qi Qi’s side without second thought.
“Is this song really made by Murong Qi Qi?”
When Longze Jing Tian heard people play ‘A glance at the mundane world’, he was surprised. Such a song, such a state of mind, is actually made by the Murong Qi Qi he abandoned? What kind of person is she? Why does he suddenly have some regret? Regretting to so easily gave her freedom……
Longze Jing Tian’s expression fell into Murong Xin Lian’s eyes making her heart become grimmer. This Murong Qi Qi still hasn’t dispersed!
Don’t need to guess the happening of the outside. It must’ve surely been done by her (MQQ)! What should she (MXL) do? If wangye gets interested in Murong Qi Qi, by then will her position not be affected? Although she wants to kill Murong Qi Qi, but Murong Xin Lian still hasn’t recovered from using her inner energy that time. Using martial arts, won’t be able to do it……However Murong Xin Lian grew up playing schemes. Just slightly moving her brains, she thought of a way to deal with Murong Qi Qi.
“Wangye, this song is really made by third little sister.”
Murong Xin Lain still maintained her loving and gentle appearance.
“Wangye, chenqie 2 really wants to invite two little sisters to tour on the lake. Before, our sister’s relationship was very good. Now we are suddenly separated, I somewhat miss them.”
“Do as you like!”
With Longze Jing Tian’s words, Murong Xin Lian sent out invitation to the four great families’ misses and young masters. Not only that, Murong Xin Lian also invited princess Ping Yang, Longze Yu Er. This time she must let Murong Qi Qi lost face, utterly lost face!
“Miss, are you really going?”
Su Yue read the content of the invitation to Murong Qi Qi.
Murong Qi Qi picked up pieces of a white dress.
“Second big sister personally wrote the invitation, if I don’t go won’t it be like not giving her face?!”
When Murong Qi Qi arrived at the east lake with Su Yue, almost all the other people have arrived. After going on board, Murong Qi Qi met some acquaintances. She nodded at Li Yun Qing, Shangguan Wu Ji and Bai Mu Fei. Murong Qi Qi sat down on a ventilated place
As Jing wang’s cefei, 3 Murong Xin Lian is dressed very grandiosely. She is Longze Jing Tian’s first consort. Even if it’s only a cefei, but the other princes are still young and hasn’t married. Moreover, Jing wangfu 4 doesn’t have a wangfei5, so Murong Xin Lian’s status can be considered very high. Now she completely looks like the hostess and made the arrangements.
On the boat the men sat at a side drinking wine. The women sat at the other side.
“Is miss Bai’s hairpin made by Guang Hua gongzi6? How beautiful!”
When Duanmu Yi Yi saw the lifelike begonia flower, the envy in her eyes became apparent.
Sure enough, it’s like how Murong Qi Qi predicted. Bai Yi Yue really suits such begonia flower.
Murong Qi Qi smiled at Bai Yi Yue. It’s seems that her taste is very good.
“Ah, you also know it’s beautiful?”
The moment Duanmu Yi Yi saw Murong Qi Qi she thought back about that night her tendons were cut. The eyes looking at Murong Qi Qi are becoming more hostile.
“I thought you don’t understand anything and is an idiot!”
Su Yue behind Murong Qi Qi rushed forward. She raised her hand and gave Duanmu Yi Yi a resounding slap on the face. The boat turned quiet. Everyone looked at Murong Qi Qi’s side.
“You, you dare to hit me?!”
Duanmu Yi Yi turned frantic. One hand is covering her cheek, the other is pointing at Murong Qi Qi and Su Yue. Her finger is trembling.
“The one I hit is you,” Su Yue humphed. “My family’s miss is personally bestowed the title of princess Zhao Yang by the emperor, is Bei Zhou country’s Nan Lin wangfei. If you still dare to speak so presumptuous then it won’t be as simple as just slapping, you!”
People couldn’t pick thorns from Su Yue’s words. When Duanmu Yi Yi is mocking Murong Qi Qi, her voice was very loud. Everyone on the boat heard it. If Murong Qi Qi really pursue the matter, then the one who will have to take the consequences will be Duanmu Yi Yi.
But being taught by such a girl, no matter what, Duanmu Yi Yi can’t swallow this anger. She withdrew her sword and wanted to fight, but her ears heard Murong Qi Qi cold and leisurely voice: “Can it be that miss Duanmu is feeling hot and want to go into the lake for a bath?”
Don’t know why, but this voice made Duanmu Yi Yi shiver. The weather is obviously very hot, why is she feeling so cold?!
A storm has been resolved by Murong Qi Qi, made Murong Xin Lian feel a bit cold. She immediately stood up and greeted everyone with a smile. But unexpectedly Longze Yu Er at a side opened her mouth gloomily: “Princess Zhao Yang’s temper is really big. Your maid even dare to hit the empress’s niece!”
Her relationship with Duanmu Yi Yi has always been good. Since the moment she knows that Duanmu Yi Yi’s hand has been hurt, she complained for her. Now she saw that Murong Qi Qi is so arrogant; hitting Duanmu Yi Yi in front of her, Longze Yu Er totally thinks that Murong Qi Qi didn’t give her face.
“Thanks for your praise! Bengong’s 7 people are naturally different!”
Murong Qi Qi did as if she didn’t hear the anger in Longze Yu Er’s words.
Even Longze Yu Er didn’t expect Murong Qi Qi to have such a thick face.
“Servants, drag this cheap maid out and give her twenty slaps with the wooden stick,” said Longze Yu Er suddenly pointing at Su Yue.
Murong Qi Qi is still leaning softly on the cushion with one hand propping her chin. She looked pollution free white rabbit and doesn’t seem to be nervous for her maid.
“Bengong is unhappy seeing her. She hinders bengong’s eyes, affects bengong’s mood and made bengong lose appetite. You say, do these count as reason?”
After Longze Yu Er’s voice fell, a grin appeared on Duanmu Yi Yi’s red and swollen face.
“Is still princess who is the best! Still not coming to drag this cheap maid down?!”
Not waiting for the people to move, Murong Qi Qi laughed.
“A few days ago, the aunt who came to teach me etiquettes said wangye’s body is not good. If chongxi,8 it’s the best to come in pairs and asked if bengong has a suitable candidate. Today, bengong saw princess Ping Yang and miss Duanmu. I feel one of the two of you are a suitable candidate. Who should I tell wangye to choose? This is really giving me headache…….”
