Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Granny Qin was stunned by Feng Ruqing’s sudden rebuke and stared anxiously at her. This old servant was assigned by Noble Consort Rong to stay with Feng Ruqing because she chased away those who were loyal and cared for her. Now that the princess had thrown her out of the princess chamber, Noble Consort Rong would definitely not spare her life.
“Your Highness, please have mercy on me and let me stay with you.” Granny Qin kept bowing to the princess, her voice trembling in fear.
“Take her out and kill her.” Feng Ruqing waved her hand in annoyance.
“This old servant chooses to leave the palace.” Granny Qin had nearly burst into tears. She thought that the princess had changed and would show her mercy. Little did she know that the princess was still ruthless and ill-tempered as she was before.
‘Does she truly think she could leave the palace safe and sound? She knows too many secrets of Noble Consort Rong. Noble Consort Rong would never let her off.’ Feng Ruqing’s lips curved into a mocking smile.
At Hua Qing Palace, Liu Rong sat comfortably on the couch, staring at the servant who was kneeling before her.
“Feng Ruqing threw Granny Qin out of her chamber?” Glared balefully and was no longer as gentle as she used to be.
“Feng Ruqing is truly different now.” Liu Rong lowered her eyes, her hands on her knees balled into fists. She could feel the pain on her hands as the nails dug into her palms.
After the near-death experience, Feng Ruqing had gone beyond her control.
“Did she go anywhere today?” Liu Rong asked after pondering for a while.
“Her Highness went to the Southern Bamboo Grove besides meeting His Majesty.”
Liu Rong slammed the table as she got up. She quickly regained her composure as she suddenly remembered that she was still in the palace.
“What’s wrong with Qing’er? The state preceptor is extremely vicious. She should not go into the Southern Bamboo Grove.” She bit back her anger and furrowed her brows.
‘No way! Feng Ruqing went into the Southern Bamboo Grove even though I frightened her off? I must meet her.’ Seeing the drastic change in Feng Ruqing, Liu Rong could not help but panic.
“Get me to the Serene Palace. I want to meet Qing’er.”
The name ‘Serene Palace’ was given by the emperor as he wanted his most beloved daughter to live a joyful and carefree life. The love of the emperor toward Feng Ruqing was something that Feng Rushuang could never have.
‘The love of His Majesty and Serene Palace all belong to Shuang’er. No one can take it away from her. Since leading Feng Ruqing astray does not seem to work, I must think of a way to get rid of her.’ Liu Rong clenched her fists tightly with a determined look on her face.
It was a pity that when Liu Rong reached Serene Palace, Feng Ruqing had left the palace together with two servants. She could not help but leave reluctantly.
In Southern Street, a modest yet solemn manor stood in the center. There was a plaque that was hung on the wall with glittering gold words—Princess Manor. It was astonishing and overwhelmed with loftiness.
“His Majesty is truly amazing. He has actually gotten this manor ready in half a day time. However, the plaque is too glaring. Liu Li, get someone to change the plaque as fast as possible.” Feng Ruqing walked into the manor as soon as she ended her sentence.
