Chapter 159: Heavenly chicken laying eggs
Xiao Ru suddenly realized something and then she asked, “Then young miss, can you guess who put the basket of eggs at our door? This servant has already asked Chun Tao and Xia He, but they don’t know anything either. Moreover, there are only the four of us in the Flowing Cloud Pavilion and no one else here. Before going to sleep last night, this servant made sure to check all the doors and windows and they were all locked, so where did this basket of eggs come from? Could a heavenly chicken have come to our door in the middle of the night and laid these eggs?”
Her round little face was filled with confusion.
Hearing the words “heavenly chicken laying these eggs”, Chen Ning’s heart suddenly skipped a beat and she began to think of Chu Shao Bai.
Could it be that Chu Shao Bai sent this basket of eggs?
But didn’t he leave filled with anger?
With his personality, it was impossible for him to come back.
But if it wasn’t Chu Shao Bai, where had these eggs come from?
“Xiao Ru, let’s keep these eggs for now. As for that basket, place it by our door before going to sleep and perhaps another basket of eggs will appear tomorrow.”
Chen Ning pursed her lips into a smile.
She had been joking, but she never thought that Xiao Ru would actually put the eggs away and the place the basket in front of the door.
Chen Ning couldn’t help breaking out in laughter.
She looked at these round eggs and then looked at the fireworks that Xiao Ru bought and a wonderful idea appeared in her mind.
“Go out for now, I want to be alone for a bit.”
She chased out Xiao Ru, Chun Tao, and Xia He. She told them that no matter what happened or what they heard, they were not allowed to come in.
The three maids did not understand what she was doing, but they could only helplessly look at each other.
Chen Ning had locked herself in for an entire day.
If it wasn’t for the sounds coming out of the room occasionally, they three maids would have thought that she disappeared.
Chun Tao and Xia He had finished making dinner, but they just carried it to the door. They did not dare to bother Chen Ning, so they could only wait outside.
After the food turned cold, they just swapped it out for warm food. The cycle of cold and warm food continued.
All the way until the evening.
Suddenly a deafening explosion came from inside of the room.
“Thunder! Thunder!” Xiao Ru screamed out as she tightly covered her ears. Her face turned pale with fright.
“The sky is falling, the sky is falling!” Chun Tao and Xia He hugged each other as they trembled. It felt like the entire house was trembling.
After a while, they realized that it wasn’t a lightning strike and that deafening sound had come from Chen Ning’s room.
“Young miss! What happened? Young miss, say something! Young miss!”
Xiao Ru was the first one to rush over. Her two fists desperately pounded on the door.
Her heart was filled with fear and she was only thinking one thing. Something must have happened to the young miss!
That deafening sound must have been the fireworks she brought back and the young miss might have been blow up.
The more she thought about it, the more afraid she felt. Her face was covered in tears and her voice went hoarse from shouting.
“Princess consort, are you in there? Are you alright? Please say something!”
Chun Tao and Xia He tried to smash the door open.
Finally, Chen Ning’s voice slowly sounded out the room.
“What are you three girls shouting for? I’m not dead yet.”
The voice sounded very tired, but it really was Chen Ning’s voice.
