Chapter 201: Royal complaint
“Princess consort!” Chun Tao opened her mouth wide with surprise. She felt that this was inappropriate, but she couldn’t tell why.
Does the princess consort really not want to win his highness’ favour?
“This is the Flowing Cloud Pavilion and this princess makes the final decision. Chun Tao, go and act out this princess’ orders.” Chen Ning said with a serious look on her face.
Chun Tao’s heart skipped a beat and went to fulfill the orders.
She did not dare come close to Mo Chuan and paid her respects from afar.
“Bodyguard Hei, please come with this servant.”
Mo Chuan’s eyes twitched a few times. He took in a deep breath and decided that from this forward, he would accept this new alias.
He looked over at Chen Ning and then walked into the courtyard without a single word. Chun Tao run fast to chase after him.
Chen Ning felt that it was very funny. His back was tall and straight, his pace was very calm, just like a proud crane.
This is interesting, she actually made an assassin her bodyguard. This was truly quite interesting.
Xiao Ru quickly came back to the Flowing Cloud Pavilion with Xia He.
When she saw Chen Ning, she broke out in tears. She rushed at Chen Ning while being choked up by tears, not being able to say a single thing.
“Silly girl, why are you crying? Aren’t I perfectly fine right now? I’m not even missing a single hair. If you don’t believe me, how about you count them?”
Chen Ning smiled as she patted her back, teasing her on purpose. Her heart was very moved at this moment.
Xiao Ru raised her tear soaked eyes and blew her nose before saying, “Young miss, this servant thought that I would never see you again in this lifetime. Wu, wu, wu, wu, wu!”
“Alright, stop crying. If you keep crying, your eyes will become like rotten peaches and you’ll be incredibly ugly.”
Hearing this, Xiao Ru quickly wiped her tears. She sobbed as she said, “This servant’s eyes are not rotten peaches. Young miss, you only know how to scare this servant.”
She circled around Chen Ning several times and when she noticed that she was uninjured, she let out a sigh of relief. Her cheeks were puffed out as she viciously scolded, “That bastard highness! This servant hates him to death! He really is a heartless evil villain! Young miss, if something really happens to you, this servant will definitely not let off that bastard highness!”
She had personally witnessed Chu Shao Yang whipping the date red horse’s butt which scared the young miss’ horse causing it to jump over the fence and that’s why she hated Chu Shao Yang to this point. She no longer whispered anymore as she continued to loudly insult that bastard highness.
Chun Tao and Xia He were scared to the point where their faces turned white as they quickly covered Xiao Ru’s mouth.
“Little sister Xiao Ru, you mustn’t insult his highness like this, this is a major offense. If it was heard by his highness, then you would lose your head.”
“I’m not afraid of losing my head. Chu Shao Yang is a bastard, a bastard, a giant bastard!” Xiao Ru’s face turned red as she continued letting out insults.
Chen Ning felt this was funny and interesting. She smiled and said, “Xiao Ru, tell me, if I were to really die, how would you go against that bastard highness?”
Xiao Ru did not even think before blurting out, “This servant would make a royal complaint! This servant does not believe that there is no law in this world. Even if no one takes responsibility for the young miss, I believe that the emperor will stand by justice and will not let the murderer go.”
“Royal complaint?” Chen Ning felt this was strange as she asked, “You can see the emperor?”
Xiao Ru was like a deflated balloon as her little face looked down. She said in a frustrated manner, “I can’t.”
The emperor lived in the heavily guarded royal palace, he was not someone a simple servant like her could see!
