Chapter 9 : A Malicious Servant Domineering Her Master (Part II)
"Who is the one that is gossiping?" Jiang Ruan stared at her, curving her lips lightly with a smile. The edge of her eyebrows rose flippantly, as if she was a different person. Immediately, her allure shone through. Although Chun Ying was a lady, Jiang Ruan's charm captivated her to the point of speechlessness.
"Don't tell me that you are the one who was making thoughtless remarks?" Jiang Ruan's next sentence reined Chun Ying's train of thought back on track. Stunned, she shook her head subconsciously, "Of course, it wasn't me."
"A dog is raised to bite outsiders and not the people it is supposed to protect. If the dog insists on causing a ruckus when it meets them, do you know what its ending will be?" Jiang Ruan asked her.
Chun Ying shook her head.
"Of course, it will be braised into a delicious delicacy." Jiang Ruan spoke softly, slowly emphasizing over the last two words. Chun Ying pinned a blank stare on her. Under the sunlight, Jiang Ruan's fair skin and beautiful facade seemed rather ghastly. Chun Ying unconsciously took two steps backwards, "M- Miss, Auntie Lan has been waiting in the house."
Bai Zhi and Lian Qiao's expressions twisted simultaneously. As a servant, she dared to use the word 'wait'. She had no sense of respect at all. The Zhang Lan family acted too wilfully with their usual lip service. On the surface, their pretense did not allow anyone to raise any issues of their shortcomings but in private, they were extremely harsh towards Jiang Ruan.
"Is she waiting for me now?" Jiang Ruan raised her head slightly, "Let's go then. I wouldn't want to let her wait for too long." She caressed her jacket's dark green button.
In the house, two people sat in front of the brazier. A young girl of thirteen cuddled in a middle-aged woman's embrace and spoke critically, "It is so cold in here. There is even an unpleasant stench wafting about. It is of no wonder that her body always smells so awful."
"Fang'er, don't speak nonsense," the woman admonished, "Regardless, she is our master. You shouldn't mistreat her too excessively. This might be used against us." Although it was meant to reprimand, her tone was full of love.
The young girl straightened into a sitting position, "How can she be considered as our master? Look at her wretched and poor appearance. Our master has already given up and stopped caring about her. I know how to handle her. Mother, look at this golden hairpin on my head. Is it pretty?" She tilted her head, exposing its golden base inlaid with grain-sized pearls.
Slightly tanned, her facial features were common. She wore a brand-new, pink satin jacket with embroidered peony. A purple dress skirt with a red layer was wrapped around her lower half and a long string of multi-colored jade hung on her waist. A pair of eight treasures earrings dangled from her ears. There was a large, golden necklace looped around her neck. Although she was merely a daughter of a servant in the residence, her manner of dressing was on par with a wealthy household's daughter.
"The quality is not bad. Fang'er wears it beautifully," Zhang Lan praised.
Chen Fang laughed gleefully. She was about to say more when a soft voice spoke from outside, "Auntie Lan has waited in my house for such a long time; is there an important matter?"
