Chapter 120: Back to Xiao Palace

Qiao Tian Chang frowned. He had always been thinking that the robbery was related only to the Qiao family, so he had subconsciously neglected other possibilities. If what Ning Meng Yao had said about Xiao Zi Xuan was true, then does it mean that Prince Xiao and the Qiao family also had some mutual secret ulterior motive?

 “I will order Lei An to investigate this matter.”

“Sure, do what you have to do.” Ning Meng Yao sneered. She didn’t understand what national affairs were, but if they really wanted to cause trouble to her, then she wouldn’t show any mercy.

Qiao Tian Chang sighed. Watching Ning Meng Yao, he suddenly realized that this woman was like a dearest treasure to him, one that he couldn’t say no to.

“Yao Yao, what do you want to do? I can help you if you want.” Although he had no real power in his hands, it was no problem if he had to retain a person.

Ning Meng Yao looked sideways at Qiao Tian Chang: “What’s your true identity? Xiao Qi Tian isn’t a simple man too, am I right?”

She wanted to ask about that before, but she never had the chance to do so. Now that he had promised to support her, it was only natural for her to question his true identity.

Looking at Ning Meng Yao and seeing her questioning eyes looking back at him, he couldn’t help but smiled coldly: “It doesn’t matter who I was before, I’m just a hunter in White Mountain Village now. Xiao Qi Tian is just a friend of mine, he won’t hurt us.”


“I know.” Ning Meng Yao nodded.

Would Xiao Qi Tian dare to hurt them? Didn’t he gained quite a bit of benefit through their relationship? In the past two months, he had earned at least 200,000 silver yuan’s, and he didn’t even had to do anything significant other than providing raw supplies.

Qiao Tian Chang pinched Ning Meng Yao’s nose: “He has business with you now, so naturally he wouldn’t try to do anything to you.”

“Like what?” Ning Meng Yao raised her eyebrows at Qiao Tian Chang and scoffed.

Qiao Tian Chang laughed and said nothing. As long as he was with Ning Meng Yao, he wouldn’t let Xiao Qi Tian lay a finger on her.

“This incident has something to do with Yang Xiu Er. She met with Xiao Zi Xuan’s servant.”

“Really? What are you going to do?”

Ning Meng Yao sneered at Qiao Tian Chang’s words: “What do you think?”

Those who dared to scheme against her should be ready to be oppressed.

“Well, as long as you are happy.”

Ning Meng Yao looked at Qiao Tian Chang, she couldn’t help but smile: “You really know how to spoil me.”

“This is for the best. I’ll love you so much that it’ll chase away those others who say that they love you, then you’ll never leave me.” Qiao Tian Chang whispered into Ning Meng Yao’s ear.

As his breath tickled her in the ear, she held her hand out and pushed his head away: “Don’t whisper into my ear like that.”

While the two of them were speaking intimately, Xiao Zi Xuan’s face was pale.

Looking at the four alluring women in front of her, she demanded: “What did you say?”

“In all due respect, we are the ladies that the Marquess has arranged for the young master.” One of the women in a pink dress bowed respectfully and gracefully.

Xiao Zi Xuan grasped the edge of the table tightly with both hands as she glared at the women.

She was pregnant with his child, yet that old woman actually sent these women to her husband. It was like that old woman simply does not respect her at all.

“Get lost!”

Seeing the vicious look on Xiao Zi Xuan’s face, the four ladies looked at each other. They had no choice but to go back to the Marquess.

“Marquess, the princess does not wish for us to serve the young master. We told her that it was you who sent us but she chased us away,” said the woman in a red dress while her head was lowered. 

The Marquess was furious: “Why that little…”

“Marquess, this is bad. The princess said she wants to return to King Xiao’s residence.” The servant who was sent by the Marquess to take care of Xiao Zi Xuan, said anxiously as she ran in.

The expression on the Marquess’s face became even uglier than before. She looked at the four ladies that she had arranged: “While she’s away, I’ll leave the four of you to serve my son. If you do well, I’ll reward you. If not, don’t blame me for your punishment.”

The Marquess had only prepared these women for her son, and Xiao Zi Xuan already wanted to return to her family. Did she think that their palace wasn’t comparable to the Xiao’s? Did she want to look for the Xiao’s for support? I would like to see if Princess Xiao will support her or not. One should know that King Xiao had many concubines. Besides, he also had two side wives, and they were all prepared by the King’s wife herself.
