Chapter 42: Pointing at a monk to call her a donkey’s butt
Once Mother Lin was angry, it was not a small deal. She did not have any expressions on her face, but her eyebrows hung low and her eyes were very sharp.
The maids by her side all became silent.
“Who is the servant serving the princess in this courtyard?” Mother Lin coldly said.
Inside the room, Chun Tao and Xia He both trembled at the same time. Their faces turned white and their eyes filled with fear.
“Reporting to Mother Lin. It is the two servants Chun Tao and Xia He.” Maidservant Feng fawningly replied.
“Very good. The princess doesn’t know the rules since it is her first time here, but do these two cheap servants not understand that they have to help the princess by teaching them to her? Chun Tao, Xia He, come out now!”
Mother Lin heavily slammed her crutch on the ground as she sternly spoke.
She had been a nanny in this king’s palace for many years, of course she understood how to hit a dog for the master to see. If the maidservants at her side was beaten, it was equivalent to slapping the master’s face, making the master feel even more embarrassed.
How could Chen Ning not understand why she was insulting other people?
But she just smiled and completely ignored her.
Chun Tao and Xia He were shivering in fear. The two of them knew that if they went out, they would be taught a severe lesson by the law maids outside. With Mother Lin in a rage, it was even possible that they would been beaten to death.
But the two of them did not dare to disobey. Mother Lin’s words in this palace was just like an imperial edict, no one dared to disobey.
Their legs went soft as they trembled and walked towards the gate.
“Chun Tao, Xia He, stop right there!” Chen Ning suddenly coldly said.
The two maidservants couldn’t help stopping where they stood.
“What this princess told you yesterday, have you already forgotten today? This princess has said that as long as you are my people, you only have to listen to this princess’ orders in the prince’s palace. What cats and dogs? Such a dubious person calling out, their just letting out farts!” Chen Ning raised her hand and heavily slammed it on the table.
This one slap on the table was like a very crisp slap on Mother Lin’s old face, making her face turn into a grimace.
Cats and dogs, dubious person!
This princess was clearly pointing at a monk to call her a donkey’s ass
[TL Note: This is an idiom meaning pointing at a monk’s bald head and comparing to a donkey’s ass, tldr – insulting someone]
She was so angry that she began to tremble. Her eyes flashed with a severe and vicious glint as she pointed her crutch at the door, “Come, drag out the little slut that dares to disrespect me and beat her up!”
Her mind was already filled with a heavy killing intent.
After pausing for a bit, she then coldly said, “The princess sneaking out of the palace means she’s broken the family’s laws. His highness has commanded this old servant to properly teach the princess a lesson. This old servant doesn’t dare go against his highness’ orders, so this old servant will just have to teach the princess about the rules of the palace.”
She looked around her and all the maids knew what Mother Lin’s meaning was. She wanted them to not be gentle and to make sure to beat her to death.
Mother Lin had a sinister expression as she gave a cold laugh.
Does it matter that the other side is a princess? She was just following his highness’ orders. Even if she beat her to death, it wouldn’t be blamed on her.
Because once the sky falls, his highness would be there to support her!
“Yes!” Over ten family law upholding maids aggressively charged into the room.
Once Chun Tao and Xia He saw this, their faces turned completely white and could not help shrinking back. Only Xiao Ru, who even though was afraid, still moved forward and stood in front of Chen Ning.
“Such bold slaves, I want to see who dares to make a move against the princess!” She loudly shouted with gaping wide eyes.
“Move out of the way!” The maids held up their sticks. Who actually put Xiao Ru into their eyes?
A maid smashed her stick down into Xiao Ru’s knees. Xiao Ru gave a pitiful cry and fell down onto the ground.
