The Fierce Illegitimate Miss - Chapter 110
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
When he heard that something was wrong with Concubine Dong, General Yu was less nervous.
Concubine Dong was just a concubine who can’t even leave the door, and she was not spoiled. What can happen? Even if she died, it was nothing.
Seeing Concubine Mei still hesitating and not daring to speak, General Yu couldn’t help but urge: “What the hell is it, you can tell me.”
Concubine Mei calmed down, she lowered her head and dared not look at General Yu’s face, and said as quietly as a mosquito, “Concubine Dong…she ran away.”
General Yu was taken aback for a moment, and he could hardly believe his ears: “What? Ran away? What do you mean by that?”
He originally thought that Concubine Dong would be ill or dead, and it was no matter even if she died, but Concubine Mei said Concubine Dong had run away? What was she running from?
Concubine Mei’s lips trembled, and she whispered: “Master, don’t be angry. It’s…that’s what happened. Today we went out early in the morning for the third lady’s affairs. When I came back, there was a maid reporting it, saying that Concubine Dong was missing. Even the gold and silver jewelry, antique calligraphy, and paintings in her room are gone, and…she left a letter for you, Master…”
General Yu snatched the envelope in Concubine Mei’s hand and looked down hastily. The more he looked down, the darker his face became. Before finishing reading it, General Yu tore the letter in his hand to pieces and shouted: “This bitch!”
On most days, he regarded Concubine Dong silently. General Yu didn’t take her seriously at all. Who knew this enigma had such an idea. Not only did she run away, but she eloped with a servant!
With General Yu’s violent temper, how could he let people give him such a big green hat!?
Naturally, Concubine Mei had read this letter a long time ago, but she dared not show that she knew the truth at this moment. She stood nervously beside General Yu, really afraid to speak, yet she dared not tell another bad news. General Yu: “…Well, there is also Brother Yuan. Concubine Dong also took him away.”
These words seemed to pour gas on the fire, and General Yu jumped into a rage: “Bitch, even my son was taken away? What a harlot—”
Seeing the appearance of General Yu, Concubine Mei had no doubt that if Concubine Dong appeared in front of them now, she would definitely be beaten to death by General Yu.
Actually, she knew that Concubine Dong eloped with someone. Concubine Mei was still very happy. Although Concubine Dong was not threatening to her, because of Yu Weiyuan, Concubine Mei always wanted to step on Concubine Dong. This time she didn’t even do anything, and Concubine Dong ran away by herself.
Now, in the Yu house, Mu Shi was dead, Concubine Dong eloped with someone else, and Concubine Mei had become the only wife, and no one can shake her status anymore.
It’s just that this excitement could only be buried in the bottom of her heart. She never dared to show it on her face. At this moment, she had to persuade General Yu and help her find Concubine Dong by any means.
“Master, don’t worry, I will send someone to find her, and I will definitely get Concubine Dong back.”
That being said, she definitely didn’t want to get Concubine Dong back again. In her heart, it would be best if Concubine Dong died outside.
General Yu said angrily: “Hurry up and send someone to her! If you find her, kill her directly, you don’t need to bring her back!”
Although he didn’t care about this little concubine who had long been out of favor, this matter is about his own face. His own woman ran away with a servant. If word spread, it would be strange if this big man was not laughed at.
Besides, Concubine Dong ran away, but Yu Weiyuan was his own son, and his son was living outside, being raised by others, and calling someone else his father. This was a shame for a man.
So he must chase Concubine Dong and kill this bitch to get rid of his anger.
Concubine Mei was overjoyed when she heard General Yu say this. With General Yu’s words, she could justifiably let Concubine Dong die outside.
Seeing General Yu’s attitude, she showed no regard for Concubine Dong’s past affection. Concubine Mei was complacent in her heart, but she did not expect that Concubine Dong’s present was actually her own future.
Concubine Mei didn’t worry at all right now. Now she was the mistress of the Yu Mansion and the only woman of General Yu, with General Yu’s child in her belly. For her, her life was peaceful.
Concubine Mei concealed the joy on her face and comforted General Yu for a long time before she walked out with excuses.
After the initial joy of receiving the news faded, Concubine Mei thought about it again. She couldn’t help but feel a little surprised. Concubine Dong had a soft temperament. How could she suddenly run away with someone? To be able to pack up the things in her room, she must have prepared carefully. Where did she have the courage and where did she get the idea?
The more Concubine Mei thought about it, the more she felt that this incident was strange. After standing at the door thinking for a moment, she walked out.
Outside the house was icy and snowy, but the room was steaming, and a large wooden tub was filled with warm water, which steamed the entire room with mist.
In the thick mist, the girl’s eyebrows were extremely delicate, and her fair complexion seemed to be crystal clear, glowing with a soft pink color.
Yu Linglong closed her eyes and soaked in the hot water, feeling that her whole body was soaked in the hot water, her tight nerves were completely relaxed, and she enjoyed this rare pleasant time.
Her little hand, which was as moist as white jade, ran across her neck unconsciously, and she couldn’t help but pause slightly when he touched the string.
It had been a few months since she met Feng Xuanyuan on the mountain. These days, she tried her best, but she couldn’t untie it or break the rope at all. She used knives, scissors, chisels, fire, and more. It had been a while, but this tough rope was exactly the same as Feng Xuanyuan had said, and she couldn’t get it off at all.
After a long time, she also gave up this kind of futile effort. It didn’t hurt or itchy anyway, so she decided to keep wearing it.
As she was thinking about it, Xuan Cao’s voice suddenly sounded outside the screen: “Miss, Concubine Mei is here.”
Yu Linglong paused and said, “I see. Let her wait outside.”
Without thinking about it, she knew what Concubine Mei was here for.
Yu Linglong slowly got up from the bathtub, and just as her slender feet left the water, she heard a soft creak from the roof above her head, which was particularly obvious in the silent night.
With a sneer on her face, Yu Linglong casually drew an outer shirt from the screen and put it on.
The wide coat couldn’t hide her curvy figure, and the end of her long hair was dripping with crystal drops of water, which exuded crystal light under the golden candlelight as if covering her whole body. The hazy brilliance, like the fairy Lingbo and the graceful spirit Luo, made it difficult to take your eyes off her.
As if she was not aware of the strangeness on the top of her head, Yu Linglong walked around the screen slowly and summoned Xuan Cao to serve her and put on her clothes.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
Her wet hair was casually pulled up in a bun, and Yu Linglong left the inner room.
Concubine Mei has been waiting outside for a long time. Seeing Yu Linglong coming out, she quickly stood up and said with a smile, “Fourth Lady.”
Yu Linglong nodded and sat down at the seat of honor, then signaled to Concubine Mei: “Sit down.”
Concubine Mei leaned to sit down, and couldn’t wait to say: “Fourth Lady, Concubine Dong eloped with someone!”
Yu Linglong wasn’t surprised. She took the tea offered by Ling’er as if she hadn’t heard her and faintly responded.
Concubine Mei couldn’t help but become anxious: “The money and things in her room have also been taken away. That’s worth a lot of money!”
Concubine Dong had been in the Yu Mansion for so many years. Although she was not very popular, taking the jewelry, calligraphy, and paintings awarded by Lady Yu, Mu Shi, and General Yu, and the things she accumulated, plus Yu Weiyuan’s things, was no small thing.
Concubine Mei didn’t care much about how Concubine Dong ran, who she eloped with and whether she would be caught and killed by General Yu. What she cared about were the jewelry and antiques.
Why did she try her best to get this position today? It was not for her status and money. A few months after she took over the Yu house, Concubine Dong ran away a lot of things. Could she feel bad?
Yu Linglong looked at Concubine Mei’s distraught and pretty face. She gradually showed a deep smile.
Concubine Mei was still talking about what Concubine Dong had taken away when Yu Linglong suddenly interrupted her: “Can I ask, how did Concubine Dong run?”
Concubine Mei said immediately: “Of course she ran with the servant—”
Yu Linglong snorted coldly: “Really? I really didn’t see that Concubine Dong was such a person. She stayed in the dignified general’s house, but she wanted to elope with a lowly servant and lived the days of being hunted and wandering around the world. Even the future of her son was ignored. Is it possible that her brain is broken?”
Hearing the strong irony in Yu Linglong’s words, Concubine Mei was startled: “Fourth Lady, what do you mean by this?”
Yu Linglong simply picked up the words: “Concubine Dong didn’t run any sooner or later. Isn’t it a coincidence that she ran at this time? I think it’s fake!”
Three years after General Yu went, Concubine Dong didn’t say she wanted to elope with someone, but she ran away with someone at this time, and even her son was taken away. This thing was done so decisively. She didn’t escape after General Yu returned, so what exactly did Concubine Dong do to have the courage to break with the Yu house in this adventurous way?
Concubine Mei could not help but clenched the veil in her hand, her eyes became alert: “Fourth Lady, do you mean I forced Concubine Dong away?”
Yu Linglong looked down and took a sip of her tea, and said pointedly: “If she doesn’t leave any way out, she will either be driven to a dead-end, or she will be dead.”
After saying this, Concubine Mei’s eyelids immediately began to jump.
“Are you to blame me for driving Concubine Dong away?” Concubine Mei’s voice couldn’t help but gradually became sharp, “Fourth Lady, you have not yet left the gate. If you marry in the future, you will understand why I did this!”
Yu Linglong sneered, raising her cold eyebrows slowly, and looking at Concubine Mei: “Are you talking to me?”
Concubine Mei shrank, her eyes drooping involuntarily.
This young girl always had a kind of intriguing majesty, which was terrifying.
Concubine Mei’s voice slowed down a bit and said, “Fourth Lady, this property will be gone if it is gone. It’s just that the master has said that he has to catch Concubine Dong and the others, and she must be killed before she can rest. What should I do about this matter?”
Yu Linglong smiled faintly: “It’s about this time. I’m afraid they have already left the capital.”
Listening to Yu Linglong’s calm words, Concubine Mei’s heart suddenly throbbed. She raised her head suddenly and looked straight at Yu Linglong. Her tone of anger could not be concealed: “You knew they ran away? You knew!?”
Yu Linglong smiled coldly at Concubine Mei’s unexpected and annoyed look.
She naturally knew about Concubine Dong. Since the last time Concubine Dong left her, she had been looking for a way out for herself. In the end, she chose the taciturn but very thoughtful Yu family servant. The two of them started seeing each other secretly and finally discussed elopement together. Yu Linglong saw everything.
She just watched indifferently and did not reach out to obstruct them. There was nothing to miss in this Yu Mansion. Concubine Dong wanted to escape, and she would not stop her.
The little hand flicked the tea gently, and Yu Linglong said calmly: “Yes, I knew it a long time ago.”
Shocked by this, Concubine Mei suddenly stood up: “Then why don’t you tell me!?”
If Yu Linglong told her in advance, then she could make preparations early. Even if she let Concubine Dong away with one eye closed, at least she could keep those things. That was a few thousand taels of silver!
Seeing Concubine Mei sternly asking, Yu Linglong frowned slightly, looked at her a little impatiently, and said coldly: “Why should I tell you?”
Concubine Mei was speechless. She knew how cold and domineering the fourth young lady in front of her was, and how serious she was. She also knew that Yu Linglong was now the actual controller of the Yu house, but she never expected this. The young woman had such a great ability to play with everyone, including herself, at such a young age.
She thought that she would be able to slowly get rid of Yu Linglong’s control by gaining the power of the manager of the house, but Concubine Dong told her that she had no way to defeat Yu Linglong. In front of Yu Linglong, she was not even an enemy. She can only be regarded as a puppet being manipulated.
The anger of being despised came spontaneously, and Concubine Mei was guilty to remember that she had now established herself in the Yu house and had the highest status among the female family members.
She had everything she wanted, so why should she be at Yu Linglong’s mercy!?
The flattering smile on her face was swept away. Concubine Mei said with a calm face: “Fourth Lady, don’t you want to cooperate with me anymore?”
She knew that Yu Linglong was willing to help her for the 30% of the Yu house’s income, and now the Yu house’s money was in her hands. If Yu Linglong was unwilling to help her, she would be happy to save the money.
Anyway, her goal had been achieved. Whether Yu Linglong continued to help her or not had little to do with her.
Her heart was so cold. No matter how you help her when she is in trouble when she is proud later, she will not care about your former kindness.
Concubine Mei thought that Yu Linglong would take the 30% of the silver into consideration and compromise with her, but she was wrong.
Yu Linglong smiled contemptuously when she heard her arrogant words.
“Cooperate with you?” She exhaled through her petal-like lips with cold air, “You’d better look at your position. We are not cooperating, but you are listening to me.”
Concubine Mei was trembling with anger, she stood up quickly: “Fourth Lady, don’t deceive me!”
She was the one who worked hard and blamed her, and she was the one who acted as a horse. Why should Yu Linglong be readily available and cheap!? She was not willing to help her, and wanted her to continue listening to Yu Linglong’s orders? Why!?
Seeing that Concubine Mei dared to disobey her, Yu Linglong said coldly: “Remember, if I can give it to you, I can get it back again.”
There were no eternal friends in this world, only eternal interests, not to mention that Concubine Mei had never been her friend.
Concubine Mei looked straight at Yu Linglong, her body trembling uncontrollably, not knowing whether it was because of fear or anger.
After a long time, Concubine Mei suddenly turned around and left without a word.
Behind her, Yu Linglong slowly showed a cold smile.
It seemed that this woman who had been pretending to be weak finally tore off her face and revealed her true colors.
Yu Linglong put down the porcelain bowl in her hand and instructed Ling’er faintly: “Go and bring me the fruit box.”
Ling’er immediately took the fruit box and placed it on the table next to Yu Linglong, and said, “Miss, these are the tangerines that were just brought in today. Do you want to try them?”
Without hearing Ling’er’s words, Yu Linglong picked up the knife in the fruit box and suddenly shot it over the window screen!
