Qi RongYue secretly smiled. This girl wasn’t stupid. “‘Other people’ naturally includes the fu’s furen and laoye. Of course, if your life is under threat, you can act according to the circumstances. But you must keep in mind that I am your only master. Other than me, you don’t need to pay attention to anyone else.”
Xue’er nodded, “Nubi understands!”
“Xue’er, do you know why I chose you?”
Xue’er shook her head, “Don’t know.”
“Because you are bold. I like girls who are bold. But bold does not mean reckless or ignorant. Do you understand?”
Xue’er was never dumb. She immediately understood Qi RongYue’s meaning. She busily nodded, “Nubi understands!”
Her eyes still fell from time to time on the steamed meat buns. Qi RongYue smiled, “The meats buns are poisoned. You better not eat that. You can eat the other stuff.”
Xue’er was shocked, “Someone wants to hurt Xiaojie?”
Qi RongYue shallowly smiled, “Many people want to hurt me in my past and present lives. But I am still alive. The heavens are fair!”
The things that happened quickly spread to Qi fu. In the warm, east side-room of QingYun Pavilion, Da furen was in the seat of honor. She was holding a filigree enameled hand stove. The sunlight shining on her white, round face made her complexion look even better.
Wei yiniang [concubine] stood behind Da furen, kneading her shoulders and neck. Da furen was so comfortable her eyes were half closed. Her lips unconsciously curved up. That little slut wasn’t in the house and she felt her whole body become more comfortable and relaxed.
