“Aiyo, Young Mistress, you have come on the right time. Master had just returned and is currently talking with Madam. Please stay and have lunch in the Happiness Joy Courtyard. What would you like to have?”
Huan Qing Yan pondered for a moment. Father was also here?
That’s great, it would save her the trouble of making another trip. “Just do as you deem fit, bring all the delicious ones.”
The housekeeper smiled and acknowledged her request before instructing the kitchen to increase the meal portions. The Young Mistress had an appetite that no one dared to belittle.
As she entered the building, she heard two middle-aged individuals talking about daily topics.
Huan Qing Yan said immediately, “Papa, mama, I wish you good health.”
Huan Bei Ming was a meager middle-age man who has a courteous and gentle character. Upon seeing Huan Qing Yan, even his eyes were smiling, “Little Yan, your etiquette is getting better and better, good.”
Madam Huan was in her thirties, her face glowed while her bearing was graceful, and said, “Your papa was just asking what you have been doing over the past couple of days. Did you have anything that you especially liked… eh? Little Yan, how come you are covered in leaves? Which forest pit did you fall into?”
One could not help but be impressed at Madam Huan’s sharp eye. Huan Qing Yan laughed foolishly and said, “You got it correct. I fell into the small forest behind the garden while playing with the swing, but no worries, I am fine.”
Madam Huan jumped in fright. From the garden to the forest was a distance of over a few dozen meters. She immediately stood up and looked at Huan Qing Yan in detail, “Did you get hurt from the fall? Have you got the servants to call a doctor?”
Huan Qing Yan shook her arms and legs to show that she was alright, “Really, I’m fine and not hurting anywhere. I fell into a pit covered with thick layers of leaves so there’s no need to call a doctor.”
“The kid’s father, this is no joke, please come and check Little Yan’s pulse…”
Huan Bei Ming held Huan Qing Yan’s beefy cute hand and felt for her pulse, “No problems, her skin is solid.”
Huan Qing Yan giggled, “With so much fat on me, of course my skin is solid. There’s no need to worry papa, mama. Oh, where’s Xing Han?”
Huan Xing Han was her young little brother who had yet to reach six years old.
Seeing that she was fine, Madam Huan resumed her graceful bearing and said, “Qing Cheng brought him out to play.”
Huan Qing Yan eyes turned cold. Although in name, Huan Meng Yue’s role was to accompany her to study and learn, but the Huan Mansion had always treated her like an adopted daughter. She was also very close to little Xing Han and has earned the title of Miss Qing Cheng* from the servants.
(Cuppa: The name meant devastatingly beautiful, the kind that could cause wars because of it, thus devastating.)
It was exactly such a person that stole Huan Qing Yan’s fiancé as well as everything that was hers…
She was a key target of the reincarnated girl’s revenge!
However, there was no hurry to deal with her for now. She must first settle the engagement with the Ninth Prince.
Huan Bei Ming saw that his daughter’s expression got somewhat weird and asked in concern, “Little Yan, do you have something on your mind?”
Huan Qing Yan swept her gaze and looked at the serving girls within the building, “Papa, Mama, your daughter has something to say.”
Huan Bei Ming and his wife exchanged a puzzled look, it was rare to see their daughter showing such a serious look and wondered what has happened. Madam Huan nodded her head and commanded all the servings girls to leave.
“Little Yan, what’s the matter?”
Huan Qing Yan replied, “Papa, Mama. Your daughter has heard stories about a homicidal maniac murdering people within the capital. Is that true?”
Madam Huan turned stiff, “Which gossiping serving girl is scaring you with the stories? There’s no need to be afraid. The homicidal maniac will not dare to come into our mansion when your father is here.”
“Mama, that’s not what I am trying to say. Your daughter is not afraid about the homicidal maniac coming into our mansion. Your daughter is afraid that the homicidal maniac will go to the Ninth Prince Mansion. Rumor has it that this homicidal maniac is actually a Greater Demon that specializes in killing Spirit Masters to dig their hearts out to eat…” Huan Qing Yan said.
