Chapter 18: Move Swiftly, Quietly Dispose Of Them
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Your Majesty, so you were here. You sure didn’t make it easy for this qie to find you.” Yao Su Luan’s emergence interrupted Ye Hong Yi’s thoughts.

Zhen really doesn’t want to see that lowly woman even for a second, even if it’s her ashes.” Ye Hong Yi controlled the loathing in the depths of his eyes and turned his gaze towards Yao Su Luan. Please do not copy or host elsewhere.

“This qie knows Your Majesty does not like it. This qie also feels ashamed to have that sort of sister. It is rare to have such a benevolent monarch, to be even willing to give her an honorable funeral, she must have had several lifetimes worth of good luck.” Yao Su Luan’s cloudy pupils abruptly flashed as she resentfully spoke.

“Your Majesty, it looks like it’s about to rain. How about this qie accompanies you back to the room? If you don’t like, it’s fine if this qie accompanies you back to the palace.” Seeing Ye Hong Yi silent, Yao Su Luan’s cherry lips slightly curved, both her hands wrapped around Ye Hong Yi’s arm as she coquettishly suggested.

“In order to not break the ancestral custom, zhen will stay one night in Xiang fu. It’s been a difficult day, zhen is also tired, let us head to your room to rest.” Ye Hong Yi indifferently spoke. Yao Su Luan was naturally uncontrollably happy and immediately pulled Ye Hong Yi towards Plum Pavilion.

Until the footsteps gradually grew far away, only then did Yao Mo Wan walk out with heavy steps from behind the fake hill. Seeing Ye Hong Yi and Yao Su Luan’s figures gradually grow indistinct, Yao Mo Wan only felt as if her chest was being cruelly drilled into by an awl, until it was broken to pieces. After it ached until numbness, all that was left was hate.

“Miss, those ministers in the front hall all left. Big Madam has returned to the Bamboo Wish Pavilion, lao ye is resting in the front hall and Liu Xing’s side has finished all their preparations.” After spotting Yao Mo Wan next to the fake hill, Yue Ting steadily walked over and reported in a low voice.

“Tell Liu Xing to carry out everything according to plan.” The light voice carried bone-chilling cold. Yao Mo Wan’s beautiful pupils abruptly flashed coldly, her lips curled into a slight, ice-cold curve.

Inside the Bamboo Wish Pavilion, Dou Xiang Lan laid down on the chair, straining to take the tea cup Ping Zhi handed over. Please do not copy or host elsewhere.

“During her life she obstructed my sight, even after death she doesn’t let me rest. I had to waste my time keeping watch beside her coffin the entire day, I couldn’t even drink a sip of water. Seriously wretched luck! Hit over here, this leg is so sore I can’t even lift it anymore!” Dou Xiang Lan fiercely drank a mouthful of tea as she complained.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Big Madam, quell your anger. In any case this is the last time. In the future, whether it’s Mo Wan or Yao Mo Xin, they won’t ever appear in front of Madam again.” Ping Zhi half squatted as she massaged Dou Xiang Lan’s leg and attentively placated her. Please do not copy or host elsewhere.

“En, if I think about this, my heart does feel a bit better. It’s just that as long as Yao Mo Wan doesn’t die, I won’t be able to breath freely.” Dou Xiang Lan slowly leaned her body against the chair, her red phoenix eyes ruthlessly narrowed.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Big Madam, when do you plan on dealing with that imbecile?” Yu Xuan asked.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“You also heard what lao ye said that day in the main hall, we’ll wait a few days before discussing it again. Ah, that’s right, did those hoodlums hand over Yu Xing?” Dou Xiang Lan suddenly recalled her little darling and immediately sat up and asked.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Replying Big Madam, the hired thugs we sent over caught them and beat them half to death but still couldn’t get Lou gongzi‘s whereabouts out of them. This servant reckons that they really don’t know.” Ping Zhi surmised.

“Even if they don’t know don’t let them off easy. Tell the subordinates to move swiftly and quietly dispose of them. A perfectly living person, how could you guys be unable to find him!? Send some more people to search! It was rare for me to finally find someone so close to me in this lifetime, I couldn’t bear it if something happens to him!” Dou Xiang Lan’s slender willow leaf brows slightly knitted as she spoke anxiously.

Right at this moment, an old servant suddenly ran in, his hands were even holding a box.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Reporting Big Madam, a few moments ago there was someone outside that handed this box to this servant, saying this servant should personally hand the box to Big Madam, you.” The servant spoke as he carefully placed the box on the table.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Alright, you can withdraw.” Ping Zhi saw that master was a bit impatient and immediately waved to indicate for the servant to withdraw. Please do not copy or host elsewhere.

“What is this? You open it to take a look.” Dou Xiang Lan did not object and lifted the tea to take a sip. Ping Zhi also didn’t mind it, thinking it was just some gift for Big Madam from someone that wanted to walk through Master Xiang’s backdoor so *she* immediately stepped forward to open the box.

For some reason, so far there’s no indication of what gender the servants beside Big Madam are. I’m assuming they’re girls.

“Ah—” At the instant the box was opened, Ping Zhi’s eyes suddenly turned round, her face became deathly pale and her entire person retreated and dropped to the floor, trembling nonstop.

“What is it?” Dou Xiang Lan looked questioningly towards Ping Zhi then got up to walk to the box. When she saw the bloody human head inside the box, the tea cup in Dou Xiang Lan’s hand fell to the floor with a ‘bang’. She was completely terrified and rooted to the floor.

Ping Zhi resisted her fear with great difficulty and staggered to climb up and close the door tightly. Then, she walked with stumbling steps to Dou Xiang Lan’s side and spoke, trembling. Please do not copy or host elsewhere.

“Madam…… Madam, that looks…… like it’s Lou gongzi’s head……”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Yu Xin…… Yu Xin ah! Who was it? Whose evil scheme was this?I will get revenge for you! Ah!” Dou Xiang Lan who returned to her sense suddenly lunged at the box and held Lou Yu Xin’s head in both her hands. Her tears gushed forth as she sobbed loudly. Seeing Dou Xiang Lan like this, Ping Zhi secretly was glad that today was Yao Mo Xin’s memorial service. Otherwise, crying like this without any cause or reason would definitely attract people’s attention.

“Big Madam, don’t be like this. The dead can’t be revived ah, if other people found out it wouldn’t be good.” Even so, Ping Zhi still prudently consoled her. Just as Ping Zhi gathered up her courage to help Dou Xiang Lan up, she suddenly spotted a note stuck onto the box.
