Chapter 257: Words will always have an effect
Although he knew that it was Chen Bi Yun’s fault, Chu Shao Yang was not willing to bow down. He picked up Chen Bi Yun and rushed off to the Intoxicated Flower Pavilion.
He did not look at Chen Ning standing by his side or the kneeling horse grooms at all, he just left without saying a single word.
Xiao An Zi and the guards acted like they had been pardoned and ran off to go find the doctor.
The horse grooms kneeled on the ground, not daring to get up. They were all trembling with pale faces, as if they had just lost both their parents.
“Humph, dare to commit the act, but not daring to own up to it. What does his words count for, what kind of shit highness are you!”
Chen Ning watched Chu Shao Yang’s back and saw he did not turn around. She disdainfully curled her lips.
She looked down at the horse grooms and then slightly raised her brows, “What are you kneeling for? Get up and bring the horse back to the stables. Be sure to tie them up properly. If there is a next time, this princess will not be able to save you.”
“We servants thank the princess consort for saving our lives!”
The horse grooms did not get up and continued to kowtow towards Chen Ning.
They were all clear that they had been saved by the princess consort. If it wasn’t for the princess consort revealing the truth, they would have been ghosts dying from injustice.
While they felt grateful to Chen Ning, each and every one of them was filled with extreme hate towards Chen Bi Yun.
That evil woman, using this kind of method to frame the princess consort. She almost harmed them to lose their lives. She really was evil!
“Forget it, forget it, this princess didn’t do any favours for you. As long as you don’t harm this princess, then this princess will be grateful to you.”
Chen Ning smiled as her eyes fell onto a single horse groom. Then she rode off on the date red horse while laughing.
That horse groom was the one who had taken one hundred silvers from Chen Bi Yun before. He was too ashamed to lift his head and his back was covered in a cold sweat.
After Chen Ning left the horse track, she did not return to the Flowing Cloud Pavilion. Rather she rode the date red horse out of the king’s palace and wandered around the streets.
“You’re letting Chen Bi Yun off this easily? Why did you not reveal her true face?” A voice suddenly came from behind her.
She did not have to look back to know it was Mo Chuan. With a smile, she said, “You saw everything?”
“Un.” Mo Chuan revealed himself. He took the rein from her hand and guided the horse for her.
Chen Ning was stunned for a bit, but then she revealed an uncaring little smile. She would let him lead the way and not ask where they were going.
“Even if I expose her true face, what does it matter? No matter what she does, she will always be a pure and flawless white lotus in Chu Shao Yang’s heart. Even if she’s wrong, he would forgive her. If she killed anyone, he would say that they deserved to die.”
She spoke in a soft and gentle voice that was completely calm, as if it was someone else’s matters.
Mo Chuan was silent. He could hear a bit of sadness and helplessness from her voice, but seeing her face, he could not see a single bit of sadness at all.
“What I said yesterday will always count!” He suddenly said.
Chen Ning immediately understood what he meant. He was saying that he was willing to kill Chen Bi Yun for her.
She slowly shook her head, “If it wasn’t for the fact that she had Chu Shao Yang’s child in her stomach, she would be dead already.”
Chen Bi Yun did indeed deserve to die, but wasn’t her child innocent?
If it wasn’t for the fact that she was pregnant, how could Chen Ning allow Chen Bi Yun to live to this day!
Mo Chuan did not say anything. He could kill a person without any hesitation, but if it was to kill a pregnant woman, even he couldn’t do that!
