Although Xiao Zi Xuan had a decent smile on her face, the veins on her hand that was grabbing on the quilt, were close to bursting; the hatred in her heart was even worse than that.
She had already compromised, what more did he want? He couldn’t expect from her to give away her position as the Prince’s wife?
Ling Luo stood by the window for a while, then went back to the bed and looked at Xiao Zi Xuan saying: “You’re pregnant now, you need proper rest.”
“I’ll be out for a while, then come back to accompany you later.” A faint smile showed on Ling Luo’s face. It looked as if he really cared for her but only Xiao Zi Xuan knew how alienated that smile was.
Xiao Zi Xuan didn’t want to be angry at this moment, so she smiled and nodded. “You go and do your stuff. I have my maids here, so you don’t have to worry about anything.”
“Well then, I’m relieved.” He stood up and left without any hesitation.
Watching Ling Luo’s figure leaving, the smile on Xiao Zi Xuan’s face gradually faded, her face became scarily gloomy.
“Do you know where that woman is?”
Xiao Zi Xuan closed her eyes. When she opened them again, they were cold and bloodthirsty.
It was night time, Ning Meng Yao was preparing to go to rest, then she heard some sounds coming from outside.
When she was going to go out to have a look, Qiao Tian Chang came into her room: “Stay inside.”
“I think there’s an assassin.”
“Assassin?” Ning Meng Yao looked at Qiao Tian Chang, puzzled. Who would want to kill her?
“I think it’s from Ling Luo. Perhaps it should be more accurate to say that it’s from his wife.” Qiao Tian Chang answered Ning Meng Yao.
He had seen Ling Luo’s wife before. Although she looked like a pleasant woman, she was secretly very sullen and sinister. Many of her servants had been murdered by her.
Ning Meng Yao was stunned for a moment. Then she smiled ironically: “So that was it. And here I wondered which terrible person had I provoked.”
It was really ridiculous. Ling Luo just came by not long ago and that woman couldn’t wait to kill her already.
Perhaps that royal daughter was worried that Ling Luo would bring her back and then she would threaten her position while she was pregnant.
But, maybe he thought too much about it. Ning Meng Yao had never thought about the matter at hand. She couldn’t be bothered about the threats made by the woman that likes Ling Luo.
“Just stay here. Your subordinate, Qing Xuan and I will deal with that intruder.” Qiao Tian Chang bowed his head to kiss her cheek, then turned around and went out. Soon, Ning Meng Yao heard sounds of a fight outside.
Ning Meng Yao wanted to help, but she, too, knew that it was too dangerous.
She could deal with some ordinary people, but not with martial arts experts.
As she waited anxiously, the noise outside gradually disappeared. Only then did Ning Meng Yao dared to go out. Outside, she saw seven or eight bodies lying in the yard; Qiao Tian Chang also caught one person.
“He must be Xiao Zi Xuan’s secret guard.”
“Secret guard? Oh, that woman really looked up to me. In order to deal with me, one single woman, she hired a secret guard.” Ning Meng Yao exclaimed in mockery.
Qiao Tian Chang looked at Ning Meng Yao with worry in his eyes. When he wanted to speak, Ning Meng Yao continued: “Qing Shuang, I’ll hand over this person to you.”
“Very well, Miss.” Qing Shuang appeared from the darkness; his eyes flashing with an obvious sneer.
Qing Shuang wasn’t lacking in anything at the moment, except for the fact that he needed people for his medicine testing. An average person wouldn’t be able to bear the side effects of the medicine. He thought to himself that this secret guard should be able to withstand it for quite a long time as compared with other test subjects.
Xiao Zi Xuan was still waiting for her secret guard to bring her good news.
However, there weren’t any good news, instead she received a few bleeding heads.
Looking at those wide eyes staring back at her from not far away, Xiao Zi Xuan screamed: “Ah…”
The people outside heard her terrified scream and quickly pushed the door open. When they saw the heads, they also screamed. Those brave enough quickly went to look for Ling Luo and Hou Ye.
When Ling Luo came over, he saw the pale face of Xiao Zi Xuan who was sitting on the bed. She looked like a little fragile girl and he pitied her a little.
“Clean up this place.”
“It’s okay, I’ll bring you to my place.”
Xiao Zi Xuan was taken aback for a moment, then nodded.
