Chapter 47: Meeting Again (3)
As he entered, he saw that the door was open with the courtyard full of guards on horse. Inside them, was a man wearing gold clothes and he was staring down at Zhou Xiaoxiao.
Wang Xun flipped over the wall and stood next to Zhou Xiaoxiao.
“Who are you? You guys are not the guards in our city of Feng Xiang. Why are you entering the house without permission?”
Zhou Xiaoxiao reached out her hands to keep him behind her.
“This is his royal highness Yan Wang, don’t be rude brother.”
Wang Xun heard that Cheng Shizhao is from the noble family of Wang Sun, and suddenly he lost his imposing manner.
The guard behind Cheng Shizhao scolded “Noble family handling affairs, unrelated people move out of the way!”
Due to his lower status, Wang Xun dare not speak against him, but he also doesn’t want to leave. So he stepped back two steps.
Zhou Xiaoxiao looked at Cheng Shizhao, and at the same time tried to think of his purpose for being here.
She said to Wang Xun in a low voice, “brother, this is unrelated to you, leave as soon as possible.” With one hand behind her back, she made a sign for the number two.
She doesn’t know if there will be any use in notifying General Yu, but she has to think about the safety of Wu DaoQuan and his wife.
Wang Xun hesitated, but Zhou Xiaoxiao turned and pushed him away, “leave!”
Wang Xun had no choice but to leave.
Cheng Shizhao sneered and said “you even have something going on with a low ranking captain, no wonder you are a woman of easy virtue.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao became outraged, but she in her previous life, she’s a grown adult in the working field many years. So she isn’t a young teenager who doesn’t understand anything.
She understands in a world like this, noble families like Cheng Shizhao, can easily take her life since she’s only a commoner.
Zhou Xiaoxiao looked at the people from the house of Wu that are isolated, and tried to control her emotions. Using a moderate voice, she said “If you have any problems, please come inside and have a talk, there’s no need in bothering other people.”
Everyone entered the house.
Soon, the door outside the small hall was filled up with guards.
However, on the inside, there’s only Zhou Xiaoxiao and Cheng Shizhao.
Cheng Shizhao sat on the owner’s seat, lightly tapping the leather whip in his hand, and squinting his eyes at her.
He couldn’t tell what’s special about this woman, or how she could make someone with a noble character like Zigui** turn into apostasy.
This woman is currently wearing male outfit, with a male hairstyle. Her ordinary face still had some flour stuck on it. You couldn’t see any charm from that woman.
Zhou Xiaoxiao wasn’t frightened when he entered the house, nor did she show any sense of flattery towards him.
“Very courageous. But don’t have your hopes up, Zigui is at somewhere else right now so he won’t be here.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao calmly stared at him, and waited for him to continue.
“I don’t have patience for a woman like you. To be honest with you, if you still think you can enter the royal family, aunt will no longer tolerate you.” Cheng Shizhao frowned while touching his chin, “right now, I have another path for you. I have a house located at Jing Jiao, and I can move you there. I will teach you for a year or so on how to behave like a woman, and if you learn well, I can grant you a lifetime of wealth.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao suppressed the upsettness in her heart to avoid fighting with him, but she also didn’t want to say more to him. So she said “thank you for your highness. But I don’t want any wealth, as long as I can stay safe in this world, it is enough.”
The man sneered in response; Zigui risked his life so many times, just for some garbage like this.
Cheng Shizhao heard the perfunctory tone in Zhou Xiaoxiao’s words and was angered.
