Chapter 39: Eldest misss trap within a trap

    At the moment, Wang mama was too busy to care about other things, allowing the few yatou to change the sheets on the bed, while she helped Yun Ruo Xue back into the room. But Yun Ruo Xue grabbed both her arms with mysterious strength, shouting wildly, "mama... mama... I didn't... I don't know anything......"

    Wang mama endured the pain on her arms, and gently consoled, "er xiaojie, nubi also knows. nubi knows that you are being wronged. But what happened tonight was seen by all the servants, there's no use even if we shout to the heavens at the moment! But don't you worry, nubi will definitely, before we reach Su city, dispose of that Zhang Ming. By then, even if we've returned to the xiangfu, da xiaojie also can't do anything to us! What's more, right now, there is a little shaoye in furen's belly, who dares to make a move against us?"

    Yun Ruo Xue listened tearfully to her analysis and gradually stopped shivering, but still continued sobbing. After all, she was an unmarried well-bred young miss; even if this incident was the result of another's scheme, when this matter gets spread out; don't talk about marrying to princes and nobles in the future, she was afraid that her daddy would strike her name off the genealogy books!

    Furthermore, Yun Ruo Xue had received her fill of love and pampering from the moment she was born, living a life of luxury in the boudoir. But if because of tonight's event, she was to be reduced to a commoner, this was to her, an even worse fate than death; what more to mention the mockery and ridicule she would receive from other noble young misses then!

    After coaxing Yun Ruo Xue to bed with great difficulty, Wang mama didn't dare to leave her side again. Holding Yun Ruo Xue's hand, she leaned on the headboard and replayed tonights events in her head!

    She had earlier informed Zhao Ming about the eldest miss's room, and had sent a yatou to keep watch from a hidden place in the aisle. When the yatou had screamed about the rapist, she was guarding right outside the second miss's room. After the second miss had dashed out, she had properly closed the door to her room, and didn't see anyone on the bed then!

    But how, in the blink of an eye, did that properly closed door become wide open? And the person that was supposed to appear in the eldest miss's bed, was unexpectedly lying down unclothed in the second miss's sheets!

    The more Wang mama thought over it, the more she felt apprehensive. Especially, at this hour, Yun Qian Meng and Yun Yan were both fully clothed; she was afraid that this time, she had fallen for Yun Qian Meng's trap within a trap!

    The only thing she could do now is to cut the weeds and eliminate the roots. Zhao Ming must not continue to exist, otherwise if xiangye puts the punishment rod to use, that Zhao Ming will confess about furen's plan!

    At that time, even if xiangye still doted on furen everyday, this matter of endangering the di young miss, even xiangye would not be able to look away!

    This time, the eldest miss had really been a step ahead of them. She had likely anticipated that furen would take action on the journey from the start. First she pulled the second miss along, then waited for the opportunity to push everything onto the second miss's body. This vicious thinking, unexpectedly came from the hands of a fifteen-year-old girl, causing Wang mama to feel cold sweat on her back. Without sleeping for the entire night, she stood up and looked at the hazy light outside. From her bosom, she fished out a bag of powder and poured it into a teacup, then carried it to walk out of the room......

    In another room, Yun Qian Meng and the others had a good sleep. As daybreak shone through the cotton curtains into the room while carrying some warmth, everyone's feelings naturally improved!

    Mu Chun somewhat panicked, carried the breakfast and entered, "xiaojie, Captain Liu just came to report. He, he said that the lecher from last night unexpectedly escaped!"

    Mi mama was carefully cleaning Yun Qian Meng's hands with a warm handkerchief. When she heard Mu Chun's words, her heart momentarily tightened. She raised her eyes to look at Yun Qian Meng, saw that she was unperturbed, and steadied her own mind. Seeing that Mu Chun was making much fuss about nothing, she couldn't help but reproach, "You are xiaojie's personal maid, how can you forget your propriety at any encounter?"

    At Mi mama's reminder, Mu Chun's face reddened. Pushing down the nervousness in her heart, she carefully put down the breakfast, then gently said, "xiaojie, if that lecher comes back again, what should we do?"

    When Yun Qian Meng saw that Mu Chun was sincerely concerned about her, her slightly pursed lips faintly perked up and exhibited a dull yet cheerful smile. Receiving the porridge bowl that was arranged by Mi mama, she used a spoon to stir the steaming hot White Fungus porridge, and lightly said, "No need to worry! After last night's event, Captain Liu will definitely tighten the security. Besides, the coming resting spots are our own villas, we can be more at ease!"

    However, Yun Qian Meng didn't tell them that this series of events were exactly as she had told her jiumu. Hence, the things that were to follow, Yun Qian Meng knew like the back of her palm!

    But she was still puzzled by one thing. That day, she had only hoped her jiumu would be able to send guards from Fu Guo gongfu to help her. But the one that appeared before her yesterday, was her da biaoge Qu Chang Qing!

    Even though Yun Qian Meng and Qu Chang Qing had never really interacted, her da biaoge was was a strict and staid person; at a young age, he had already risen to the position of assistant minister in the military, absolutely not the kind of person that liked meddling in other people's business. But this time, why did he come to wade the dirty waters of the xiangfu?

    "xiaojie, the porridge will get cold. We still need to hurry on with the journey, in case anyone else gets any rotten ideas!" Mi mama saw that Yun Qian Meng was only staring at the porridge in her bowl, but hadn't taken even a mouthful, also worried about the earlier events, and only spoke to remind her/

    Hearing this, Yun Qian Meng faintly nodded, then simply ate a small bowl of porridge and two pieces of corn cake, then got up to leave the room.

    Yun Yan had already brought her servants to wait outside the door. Seeing Yun Qian Meng come out, she hurriedly bowed, "Yan'er greets jiejie!"

    "We sisters need not be so polite!" Yun Qian Meng had a smile on the corner of her lips while Yun Yan had personally come forth to support her, carefully helping her down the stairs!

    Last nights events had caused Yun Yan to truly realize, dajie Yun Qian Meng was really her lucky star!

    If Yun Qian Meng didn't give her a heads up last night, she was afraid that the person who would be selfishly accused would be herself! By then, even if she had ten mouths, she wouldn't be able to clear her name!

    Thinking back on how last night, Yun Ruo Xue, who was always bossy and domineering, had become speechless, Yun Yan felt cold sweat on her back, and couldn't help but let our a deep breath, feeling even more admiration towards Yun Qian Meng!

    When everyone had already boarded their carriages, Yun Ruo Xue just drowsily started to get up. Only even after she had sat on the bed for a long time, she didn't see Wang mama who was on the stool come over to serve her. Thinking back to last night's disgrace, Yun Ruo Xue grabbed a pillow and threw it towards Wang mama, "What are you dreaming about, can't you see that I've gotten up?"

    Wang mama had been staring entranced at the cup on the table, and had not been paying attention the situation around her. Her face was directly struck by the pillow, but she didn't dare to raise her temper, only pushed down the worry in her heart and helped Yun Ruo Xue to freshen up and eat breakfast!

    Yun Ruo Xue also didn't have much of an appetite, carelessly ate some pastries, and picked up the teacup nearby, but had it quickly snatched away by Wang mama. "Wang mama, what are you doing?"

    Seeing that Wang mama's expression was not right, Yun Ruo Xue lost her temper and pointed at her nose to scold, "Even you dare to oppose me head-on! You don't want to live anymore?"

    Wang mama quivered from head to toe, and finally clearly saw the situation before her. She hurriedly apologized, "xiaojie, don't be angry. This tea is cold, drinking it is not good for the body. nubi will pour you a new cup!"

    As she spoke, Wang mama turned and poured the tea into a bonsai by the window, then took out a clean teacup, poured a cup of hot tea and passed it into Yun Ruo Xue's hands!

    By the time Yun Ruo Xue stepped out of her room to continue on the journey, two hours had passed. While Yun Qian Meng and Yun Yan didn't voice out any complaints, the servants who had to wait outside could only feel angry but not say anything!
