Chapter 671 The Crazy Madam Of Duke Xing
Shao Wanru had already arrived in the yard. As soon as she sat down, she was summoned by Madam of Duke Xing. She slowly drank a cup of tea and went to Madam of Duke Xing’s yard with Yujie and Qing’er.
The moment she entered the yard, she saw a few rough old maids waiting outside the main room and looking at her fiercely.
When they entered the room, there were another two old maids waiting inside.
Madam of Duke Xing, who was sitting on the top, had been waiting with a livid face and fuming with anger. When she saw Shao Wanru coming in, she slammed her hand on the table and shouted angrily, “Someone comes to take down this girl who has framed her Big sister and beat her 20 times.”
Thinking of the message from Shao Yanru that she had fainted again, Madam of Duke Xing was so angry that her eyes were full of madness.
Her beautiful daughter had been carefully brought up, but now fell into such a situation. How could she not hate Shao Wanru so much that she wanted to beat Shao Wanru to death?
Two rough old maids in the room were about to step forward.
Qing’er and Yujie hurriedly warded them off in front of her.
Shao Wanru sneered and looked up at Madam of Duke Xing, who was so angry that she lost her mind. She said, “Second Madam, what do you mean? I don’t know how I offend you to the extent that you want to take my life. At least, I am the offspring of Great Elder Princess. Not anyone can take my life as he wants!”
It was quite blunt to call her Second Madam!
The two rough old maids looked at each other and involuntarily stopped.
They obeyed Madam of Duke Xing, but they couldn’t gamble their lives. Just now, they only thought that Madam was the master of the backyard, but they didn’t think that the Fifth Miss was not only related to Duke Xing’s Mansion.
“Beat her! If something happens, I will take responsibility. This is Duke Xing’s Mansion, not Rui’an Great Elder Princess’s Mansion. Even Great Elder Princess can’t intervene in disciplining the younger generation of other mansions!” Seeing that the two old maids were scared, Madam of Duke Xing screamed in anger.
She hated Shao Wanru so much at this time that she couldn’t wait to beat Shao Wanru to death right now and avenge her daughter.
The two old maids hesitated for a moment and had to continue moving forward.
“How dare you! Don’t you know who you are? If you dare to reach out your hands, I’ll chop off your hands and feed them to the dogs!” Before they approached, Qing’er had already shouted. She pushed out hard, and the old maid in the front couldn’t stand still anymore. Her fat body took a heavy step back and hit the old maid behind her. The two old maids tripped over each other and rolled together.
Madam of Duke Xing pounded the table and stood up. She said in a harsh voice, “How dare you disobey your elder!”
“Are you my elder?” Shao Wanru pushed away the two servant girls in front of her and walked forward slowly with a smile on her face. However, the smile was very cold and inexplicably made people feel a strange chill in their hearts.
“Madam, you really think highly of yourself. My mother is Infanta Qinghua, and my father is the Heir of Duke Xing. As what kind of elder does Madam want to beat me to death? Is it because Madam has been in charge of Duke Xing’s Mansion for a long time and really thinks the whole world belongs to Duke Xing’s Mansion that Madam can beat whoever you want to death!”
Her words were very soft and almost gentle, but the meaning in her words made Madam of Duke Xing feel as if she had been poured with a basin of ice on her head. She felt cold all over, and her strength had almost dissipated.
How would she dare to say such outrageous words?
“You… you dare to say such things. Aren’t you afraid of… being killed without pardon?” Madam of Duke Xing’s face was pale and her voice was trembling.
Shao Wanru’s words were not only outrageous but also rebelling the emperor. Even Duke Xing’s Mansion couldn’t bear them.
“Second Madam, are you afraid of such words? You even dare to extend your hands in the palace! Someone in the palace should have helped you when something happened to Miss Wang, right? It’s the same this time. I don’t know which consort in the palace has been helping you all the time!” Shao Wanru took a few steps forward with coldness in her eyes.
It was about three years ago when Wang Yishu had suddenly fainted in the palace. If someone hadn’t sent messages to the palace, she wouldn’t have fainted in the Imperial Institute of Medicine for so long.
Madam of Duke Xing had not been called “Second Madam” for many years. At this time, it was mentioned by Shao Wanru with a creepy feeling, as if something broke out of the soil beyond her control.
“You… you are presumptuous! Come on, shut up Fifth Miss’s mouth so that she won’t say something outrageous!” Madam of Duke Xing had been in charge of the family for many years, so she was no longer the cousin Miss raised in the mansion at that time. Although her soft spot had been stabbed, she scolded Shao Wanru harshly just after a moment of calm.
It seemed that the matter of Wang Yishu had to speed up. She couldn’t allow Wang Yishu, the scourge, to be alive.
No one had mentioned this before, so her methods could be slower and more natural. But now, she couldn’t do like this anymore, and there was a hint of cruelty in her eyes.
Seeing that Madam of Duke Xing was at a disadvantage, Nanny Sheng immediately raised her voice and shouted, “Come here and shut up Fifth Miss and take her away to beat her as punishment!”
A few old maids who were guarding the door hesitated for a moment, but they still came in. Each of them was tall and stout, and obviously very strong.
“How dare you…” Yujie looked warily at the old maids coming over and said in a stern voice.
“Fifth Miss is so arrogant that her words may bring harm to the whole mansion. It is reasonable for Madam to punish you!” Nanny Sheng sneered and said without backing down.
She was not only Madam of Duke Xing’s henchman but also used to be Duke Xing’s wet nurse. Therefore, she was very dignified in the mansion. How could a little servant girl do against her?
Several rough old maids saw that Nanny Sheng was very powerful, so they immediately became bold and walked towards Shao Wanru with fierce faces.
Qing’er wanted to take action, but Shao Wanru reached out to grab her sleeve and shook it secretly. She couldn’t let others know that Qing’er has learned martial arts. The reason why she brought Yujie and Qing’er here was to make people think that Qing’er was just like Yujie, a servant girl with greater strength than ordinary people.
Qing’er understood Shao Wanru’s meaning and nodded at her silently. She took a few steps forward to help Yujie block a few old maids who rushed over fiercely.
Although there were a lot of old maids, Qing’er and Yujie were quite strong, especially Qing’er. Although she couldn’t show her martial arts skills, she could poke their acupoints. She didn’t use much strength, but could still make the old maids’ limbs sore and weak for no reason so that they couldn’t exert much strength.
With her secret behavior, Qing’er and Yujie managed to block a few old maids.
Shao Wanru took a step forward. Her jade-like delicate face had a sharp evil spirit. Her long eyelashes fluttered, and her eyes seemed to be immersed in the ice that had been frozen for thousands of years.
“Second Madam, do you really think that you can control the whole Duke Xing’s Mansion? In the future, everything will belong to Hao’er. You… just take charge of the internal affairs for the time being. Hao’er will be the only master in the future. You are not the master and don’t have such wishful thinking! Madam of Duke Xing? What a joke!” These words came out of Shao Wanru’s mouth one by one, with strong hostility.
Madam of Duke Xing was so scared that her face turned pale, and then she trembled with anger. It took her great effort to climb up to the position of Madam of Duke Xing, but no one knew this. How could she not be angry when she thought that everything she had struggled to get would eventually belong to someone else?
Her fingers were tightly clasped on the fence of the big mahogany chair, and her teeth were almost stuck into the flesh. At this moment, there was only one crazy thought in her mind that she would drag Shao Wanru and her brother away, and beat them to death. Duke Xing’s Mansion was hers, and could only be hers.
She thought so in her heart. After the corners of her eyes twitched twice, she couldn’t help screaming, “Everything in this mansion is mine. In the future, the Heir of Duke Xing can only be my son. You and Shao Yuanhao, that little bastard, no one know if you are the children of the Heir of Duke Xing. Who knows whether Infanta Qinghua was dissolute? How can he inherit Duke Xing’s Mansion?”
Her son being Heir of Duke Xing was Madam of Duke Xing’s obsession.
She had mastermind with painstaking effort for so many years in order to let her son successfully take over Duke Xing’s Mansion. How could she allow Shao Wanru and her brother to intervene in and ruin her plan?
It turned out that Madam of Duke Xing had this thought. There was a trace of fierceness on Shao Wanru’s face, and she had already understood some conjectures in her heart. No wonder Old Madam’s attitude was so strange. It was because of this thought that Old Madam didn’t want to see her real granddaughter at all.
Thinking that her father and mother had been forced to die and even their innocence was suspected after their death, Shao Wanru couldn’t wait to kill Madam of Duke Xing in front of her. She always felt that there seemed to be something fishy in the whole Duke Xing’s Mansion. It turned out that the problem was here!
If she hadn’t forced Madam of Duke Xing to tell the truth today, she might never know why she had been treated unfairly and her brother Hao’er had been brought up in a terrible way, although they were all her grandchildren?
“Pa!” Shao Wanru failed to slap Madam of Duke Xing hard in the face because Nanny Sheng stood in front of Madam of Duke Xing, and she was slapped in the face. Then Nanny Sheng’s legs went soft, and she seemed to be tripped over something and fell back heavily. Her fat body directly pressed on Madam of Duke Xing’s body, which made her scream.
“Nanny Sheng, get out of my way. I want Second Madam to make it clear!” Shao Wanru reached out and grabbed Nanny Sheng’s neck. Then she pressed back hard and saw that the hairpin on Nanny Sheng’s head was inserted into Madam of Duke Xing’s face, and then she pulled her neck back hard.
Suddenly, a sharp bloodstain appeared on Madam of Duke Xing’s snow-white face.
“Ah!” Madam of Duke Xing screamed in pain and desperately tried to push Nanny Sheng away. Unfortunately, most of Nanny Sheng’s body fell on top of her, so she could not get up for the moment.
“Come on, come on, take her away!” Madam of Duke Xing shouted loudly and kicked hard at Nanny Sheng’s foot, trying to kick Nanny Sheng away from her. Nanny Sheng screamed in pain and struggled. Not only did she fail to struggle up, but she also lost more strength. Her body pressed hard on Madam of Duke Xing, which only made Madam of Duke Xing scream!
Everyone was stunned and looked at the scene in front of them in disbelief. No one knew what to do next.
“What happened here? Why did I hear Madam of Duke Xing swearing so viciously from a distance? Old Madam, is this the Madam in your mansion? I’ve never seen such an indecent Madam, who is like a shrew in the marketplace. Duke Xing’s Mansion is really out of the ordinary!”
