Chapter 934: Maid who pulled the fang
Ye Ting Xuan fell into deep thought.
He believed the Eldest Princess’ words, but he also believed that this was someone’s trick.
Did someone secretly swap them, switching out the defanged black python the Eldest Princess put in for this black snake with white spots?
But who did it? What is their goal? Could it be they wanted to harm the emperor? The Empress Dowager? Or was it Ning’er?
This was confusing!
Even with how smart Ye Ting Xuan was, there was just too few clues and he couldn’t figure out a single thing.
The only thing he could find out was that the person who prepared the package was in the Eldest Princess’ palace and it was someone close to her.
So he had to find that person!
Otherwise this could happen again. Next time, what kind of trick would be played? Who knew who the next target would be?
Thinking of this, a chill ran through Ye Ting Xuan.
“Princess, did you personally catch this snake?”
The Eldest Princess shook her head and said, “Of course not, I sent people to buy it from the market, but I personally watched them defang it. I also personally placed the snake into the box, but I don’t understand why it would become this black snake with white spots!”
“Oh, who was the one who defanged this snake then?” Ye Ting Xuan’s eyes slightly narrowed.
“It was one of my maids. I just asked who dared defang a snake and she bravely volunteered. She was very clean in defanging the snake and I even awarded her two silvers.” The Eldest Princess said.
“You have this skilled of a maid in your palace? Why didn’t I know?”
“She has already followed me for several years, I also didn’t know she had this kind of skills. Ting Xuan, when did you become interested in the maids in my palace?” The Eldest Princess asked in a depressed voice.
“I’m not interested in the maids, but I am very interested in this maid who defanged the snake. Eldest Princess, immediately return to your palace and find this maid. You mustn’t let her escape and you can’t let her die, I have some things I want to ask her.”
Ye Ting Xuan said with a serious expression.
The Eldest Princess had a temper, but she wasn’t a fool. She immediately understood, as her brows instantly furrowed and she tightly clenched her fists.
“This girl is truly daring, actually daring to play tricks under this princess’ eyes. I’ll go to the palace now and if it was really done by this girl, I’ll flay her! Even peeling her skin won’t be enough to vent my anger! I…..I want to ask her, just what deep grudge she has with Ning’er and why she would use this kind of poison to harm people!”
She was so angry that her tears almost came out, but they were burned away by her flames of rage.
Turning around, she left with quick steps.
“Eldest Princess, wait a minute.”
Ye Ting Xuan thought of something and chased after her, saying, “You can’t spread this matter or there will be panic. Also, that maid might not be the one behind this, there may be another main perpetrator behind her. You have a rash personality, you won’t be able to find anything. You just need to watch over this person, I’ll ask everything when I come back.”
“I understand, I’ll immediately head to the palace. If that maid has run away, I’ll chase her to the ends of the earth! If I can’t find anything, I…..I’ll give this life to Ning’er!” The Eldest Princess stomped down and turned back to look at the unconscious Chen Ning lying in the bed.
“Ting Xuan, if Ning’er…..No matter what the news is, whether it is good or bad, you have to let me know immediately.” She tearfully said.
