“How would this servant dare to?” Su Xi-er replied deferentially.
“You better not...” Pei Qianhao didn’t continue, but the meaningful look in his eyes made the implication in his words clear.
Recalling the times they had been together, Pei Qianhao knew that Su Xi-er was a unique woman who wasn’t afraid to speak her mind, and who wasn’t timid and scared like other maidservants. Although I can read many other people easily, she is the only one who I can’t see through at a glance.
The horse carriage travelled for a long while before finally stopping at a place called ‘Zhao’s Flower Shop’.
Pei Qianhao had just dismounted the carriage when he turned around to help Su Xi-er off as well.
However, Su Xi-er didn’t see it. Instead, she lifted up the carriage curtain before nimbly jumping off on her own.
Pei Qianhao’s face darkened as he retracted his extended hand without another word. Turning his attention to the flower shop, he could vaguely see flowers peeking their heads out like shy little beauties.
The imperial guard beside them noticed the air around them was strange, but Su Xi-er’s face remained unruffled.
When Uncle Zhao, the shop owner, saw that noble guests had arrived, he immediately came out of his room and grinned to welcome them. “Hey, dear customers, are you here to look at the flowers? My small shop has all different types of flowers that are all blooming, and extremely beautiful.”
Pei Qianhao looked at Su Xi-er and said with a deep voice. “Let’s go inside and take a look.”
Before he stepped forward, the sound of horse hooves could be heard in front of them. An imperial guard from the Prince Hao Residence arrived on a horse with a solemn expression. Quickly dismounting, he handed a letter to Prince Hao and whispered, “Your Highness, a letter from Commander Wu.”
Pei Qianhao took the letter, glanced at Su Xi-er, and instructed, “Go in first, this Prince will be there soon.”
“Oh.” Su Xi-er didn’t stay, and followed Uncle Zhao into the shop.
Although Uncle Zhao had never left Moon County, he could still tell that the person in front of him was a noble. Just looking at that man’s disposition, he could tell that he was either a rich man or a nobleman from a big place like the capital city.
Adding on to that, the young lady next to him was beautiful and wearing expensive clothes. It isn’t hard to tell that this couple is extraordinary.
Noting this, Uncle Zhao didn’t dare to be careless, and carefully answered to these noble guests.
“Miss, there are all types of flowers in this little shop. What type of flower do you need? This humble one can take you over to have a look.”
Su Xi-er waved her hand. “No need. I am just looking around until the Young Master from my household comes in.”
“Oh, good good.” Despite him saying that however, Uncle Zhao still didn’t dare to be careless, and carefully served her. He followed two steps behind her and explained things here and there.
Outside, Pei Qianhao held the letter from Wu Ling in his hands. The entire thing was filled with Wu Ling’s writings about each crime that Pei Yong had committed. Even one of these crimes was already enough to condemn Pei Yong to a terrible death!
His face became dark and cold. He looked at the imperial guard next to him and instructed, “You, take this Prince’s verbal edict and go to the small county past the border. Meet with Wu Ling and return to the capital of Beimin to capture Pei Yong!”
The imperial guard hastily nodded. “Yes.”
Pei Qianhao only turned around and entered the flower shop when the guard was far away.
Su Xi-er was just browsing casually and didn’t see him walking in from the outside.
She had just walked in front of a cluster of Magnolia Coco, looking like a placid young lady as she stared at their pure white petals.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
