The Fierce Illegitimate Miss - Chapter 24
Xu Wang’s gaze softly rose from Yu Weiwu’s body on the ground. He forgot about Yu Linglong’s face, and for a moment he couldn’t clearly see the delight on her face.
In front of his eyes was an elegant, outstanding young woman who had vented her anger. In her crystal clear eyes, he could see a dense contempt, like she really didn’t just hit Gentleman Wang.
Mu Shi hid off to the side, trembling with fear. In this atmosphere, she didn’t dare gasp, and even more, she didn’t dare speak.
It was like the air in the room was frozen. No one knew what this quarreling Xu Wang’s response would be.
He closed the fan in his hands, and then chuckled: “Since Fourth Sister likes this horse, the Wangs will give it to her.”
After speaking, he got up confidently, and surprisingly walked out the door, and didn’t look into the matter any further.
As he was walking out the door, he turned around, and in his mysterious eyes was a complicated expression, and he sized up Yu Linglong.
“You are very special.”
He threw out this thoughtless sentence, and then he turned around and left.
Special? Yu Linglong snorted cooly. This little Wang Ye had really eaten his fill, or he had never seen this kind of formidable younger sister, did it feel fresh?
However, she had no time to surmise Xu Wang’s mood, and she lowered her head to look at Yu Weiwu who was still on the floor struggling to get up, as well as a shivering Mu Shi. Yu Linglong snickered.
“Does the lady really want to see me off?”
Mu Shi thought she would only give one good beating, and the second she heard Yu Linglong’s question, she unexpectedly stared blankly at where she was.
This wasn’t nonsense, right, all her dreams were about rushing this demon out the door, to get rid of living in fear every day, but how dare she say these things!
“Linglong, I…I don’t mean that,” Mu Shi let out a flattering smile with great effort. “You also saw what just happened, Xu Wang criticized you violently, I must lecture him…”
“So you just want to hand me off to other people, to preserve peace in the household?”
Yu Linglong sat her delicate body down in the imperial chair, and her aura was so strong, Mu Shi and Yu Weiwu were unable to raise their heads.
Mu Shi’s words were blunt. In her mind, the daughters of large families are used to contribute to the family, especially the daughters of concubines from humble backgrounds. As long as they can keep the family safe, be magnanimous, and sacrifice a little concubine, what’s the big deal?
When everyone thinks this way, the approach is not surprising.
But this rule was completely invalidated when she met Yu Linglong. She doesn’t care how you did it before, as long as no one messes with her safety and interests, then no one will think about it!
Seeing that Mu Shi was so embarrassed she didn’t know how to answer, Yu Linglong smiled contemptuously.
If Yu Linglong was still a concubine’s daughter, regarding Mu Shi’s actions, unfortunately, she could only accept a compromise and allow others to determine her fate. Just like after Yilan’s death, the only way out was to return to the Yu family, to attach herself to Mu Shi’s life.
But she is not Yu Linglong, she is the sister of the underworld, Yu Mei!
This is an era where the weak are prey to the strong. Years of experience in the underworld had allowed her to see through this world. If she wanted to survive, she can only make herself stronger, rely on others, and sooner or later everyone will be taken advantage of or even killed.
Destiny brought her to the Yu household to become Yu Linglong, but that doesn’t mean that she will accept Yu Linglong’s fate. No matter what environment she’s in, she will not change herself, let alone let her feel wronged!
Just like right now, she looked at mother Mu Shi and her son in a condescending manner and said lightly: “You think I’m not pleasing to look at, I think you’re not pleasing to look at. In this case, let us make an agreement: You pay me five hundred taels of silver a month, I’ll live in Pinlan Park, I won’t bother you, and you don’t harass me.
Since it’s ancient times, it’s better to be honest. Don’t offend me, and I won’t offend you. It’s best if the two are irrelevant. She didn’t bother to fight with these people because all their conspiracies and tricks seemed to her to be as naive and ridiculous as children playing.
Mu Shi was so shocked that she couldn’t say anything. Five hundred taels a month!? Did she want to kill her? Her biological daughter Yu Qianjiao’s monthly allowance was only twenty taels, and Yu Qianfang and Yu Qianliu only had twelve taels per month. This Yu Linglong said five hundred taels, enough to feed fifty concubines!
But did she dare say this? Even her own son who was a military guard was beaten on the ground by Yu Linglong, did she dare refuse her?
Yu Linglong crossed her legs and casually looked at Mu Shi’s pained expression.
These people wanted to use her as a tool, so she was also not kind to them. Last night she went to Zuixianlou to spend twenty taels on food and clothing. She felt that five hundred would almost be enough for a month.
She understood the argument that no matter if she was in ancient times or modern times it was the same, without money she would be in a very difficult situation. Before she decided what the next step would be, she decided to make Mu Shi bleed a lot, which would give her a small lesson.
Just slaughter your silver, what can you do?
After hesitating for a long time, Mu Shi plucked up her courage and said with a sad face: “Ling Long, it’s not that I refuse to give it to you, it’s that the family doesn’t have that much money. Besides, I gave you so much yesterday…”
Under Yu Linglong’s fierce gaze, Mu Shi’s voice got smaller and smaller, and in the end, she could barely hear it.
Yu Linglong looked at Mu Shi coldly: “You think I want more!?”
Mu Shi was quick to deny: “No, no, no, I mean five hundred taels a month, the family really can’t afford that much…”
After meeting Yu Linglong’s cold eyes, Mu’s voice stopped abruptly.
Right now, did Mu Shi dare bargain with her?
“Too much? Okay, one thousand taels per month.” Yu Linglong blew on her pink nails. “If not, I will burn the Yu family compound tonight!”
Mu Shi sat on the ground. Her brain hurt as if it had been cut out of her skull. A thousand taels of silver! Just because she hesitated for a while, the number doubled!
Moreover, looking at Yu Linglong’s posture, Mu Shi could absolutely believe that when she said she would burn the place, it was more than a verbal threat.
In just two day’s work, the Yu family had already suffered a crushing defeat. No matter how much she could appease Yu Linglong, she really couldn’t imagine what terrible things this concubine could do.
Just treat it as bankruptcy to avoid disaster and first answer her requests, otherwise, she will not be able to pass the current barrier.
“Yes…” The aunt, who had always been arrogant, lowered her high head in front of the concubine. “Within three days I must send the silver to Pinlan Park.”
Yu Linglong stood up: “Okay. Also, from now on, don’t control me. Otherwise, I won’t let you off as easily as today!”
Mu Shi lowered her head and her body was trembling violently from pain and fear. Is it easy to let it go today? She had lost face in front of Xu Wang, her son was knocked to the floor and was still unconscious, and Yu Linglong even said that she was magnanimous!?
This concubine, where did this demon come from!?
