Chapter 145: Five finger mountain
“Humph!” The eldest princess gave a cold snort and she did not have a smile on her face at all. Without saying anything, she raised her right hand and slapped at the right side of Chu Shao Yang’s face.
If Chu Shao Yang did not react fast enough, he would have suffered a five fingered mountain on his face.
“Royal aunt, let’s stop for a minute. Your nephew has something to take care of.” Chu Shao Yang jumped back and flew out of the ring.
Out of the corner of his eyes, he saw Housekeeper Xu rushing over.
“You can’t win so you’re running away?” The eldest princess was having fun fighting, so how could she let him leave? She kicked out once again, aiming right at Chu Shao Yang’s butt.
Chu Shao Yang did not have time to dodge and her kick landed right on target. He fell face first with a putong sound, eating a faceful of mud.
He was angry and unhappy. He stood up like a carp jumping up and spat out a mouthful of dirt, then he angrily glared at the eldest princess.
“Royal aunt, sneak attacking like this is going against the Jianghu rules!”
The eldest princess made a “pei” sound, “Stinky little brat, your palm technique isn’t all that great, so don’t brag about it in front of this princess in the future.”
“Yes, yes, yes, thankfully I had royal aunt’s guidance, otherwise your nephew would not have figured out that I had been cheated by my teacher. Please wait a minute royal aunt, your nephew is going to change clothes and then I’ll lead royal aunt to see the princess.”
Chu Shao Yang could be considered quite clever, immediately giving a very haughty reason.
The eldest princess did not doubt him. Seeing that he was personally coming with her to see Chen Ning, she just nodded.
Chu Shao Yang instantly pulled Housekeeper Xu into an empty corner and spoke with a calm expression on his face, “How are things going?”
Housekeeper Xu swallowed a mouthful of saliva and worked up the courage to first report Chen Ning’s first condition.
Chu Shao Yang’s face was calm as water, declining to comment.
She wants to live in the Flowing Cloud Pavilion? She’s dreaming! But with the current situation, he had no choice but to agree even if it made him reveal an ugly expression.
“What does your highness think about this?” Housekeeper Xu looked at Chu Shao Yang’s face with a heart filled with anxiety.
“Humph!” Chu Shao Yang gave a deep snort.
A stone fell to the ground in Housekeeper Xu’s heart.
He knew that his highness’ snort signified that he agreed to this.
“What is the cheap woman’s second condition?” Chu Shao Yang said through clenched teeth.
“……” Housekeeper Xu did not dare to say it.
“Yes, your highness. The princess’ meaning is that she wants your highness to personally ask her and then she’ll leave the wooden hut for the Flowing Cloud Pavilion!”
Naturally Chu Shao Yang was filled with anger hearing this. He was so angry that his face turned green.
“There’s no need to even think about it! She wants this king to personally ask her? What kind of thing is she!” Chu Shao Yang was thoroughly enraged. If Chen Ning were to appear in front of him now, he would not have hesitated in strangling her to death.
“Your highness, please calm your anger.”
Housekeeper Xu had already expected his highness’ reaction, so he instantly knelt down.
“Your highness, please listen to your servant for a second. You need to make a tiny sacrifice to do big things. You are a person that does great things and the princess is just a trivial woman, there is no need to lower yourself to her level. Since the eldest princess wants to meet the princess, why don’t you just bring the eldest princess to the wooden hut and let them meet?” He honestly said.
Chu Shao Yang felt his temples painfully throbbing with a “tu, tu”. As well his chest felt like it had been blocked by a large ball of cotton, making it hard for him to breath.
He knew that Housekeeper Xu’s words were reasonable, but once he thought about himself asking that cheap woman for something, he couldn’t help feeling a deep anger filling his mind and he was filled with killing intent.
He sent out a large slap out at Housekeeper Xu’s face and then followed up with a kick, knocking Housekeeper Xu to the floor.
“You waste, you idiot! This king sends you out to do something and you accomplish it like this? Do you still want to keep your position as the housekeeper!”
