The Cannon Fodder and Villain’s Happy Ending - Chapter 94
Du Ruo also knew what had happened to Xia Lian, and it was precisely because the servants in the Yuan Xian courtyard were so restless that Empress Wei rewarded her to Jiu, so that the girl would not get angry and suffer from her incompetent servants.
Xia Lian thought too highly of herself, the incident happened 11 days ago. Even if she had lost a tooth, she should have recovered by now!
Xia Lian didn’t come in today, it was obvious she was intentionally trying to embarrass Jiu.
Du Ruo frowned and scolded: “How dare she! If she was sick, she should just go home, what if she had infected the mistress!”
Du Ruo looked over to Qin Jiu: “Mistress, since Xia Lian is severely ill, we should just let her go.”
“Kick her out then” Qin Jiu replied.
The pair worked well together.
Du Ruo’s work style had always been clean and quick, she handled her affairs briskly and immediately instructed the servant : “Immediately kick out Xia Lian!”
Chun Xi and the other servants exchanged glances, no one dared to move.
Even if Xia Lian was slapped in public, the next day, the Marquess family rewarded her, which made them feel at ease. It didn’t matter that they were slapped, as they were given a reward!
Initially, they should have welcomed the third mistress today. However, Xia Lian wanted to prove her loyalty to Lady Su and pretended as if she had fallen ill.
Chun Xi and the others knew about this, but they hid the truth from Qin Jiu.
Qin Jiu looked around at the servants that froze in place, she frowned and said:” The servants in Zhong Yi resident are indeed unruly!”
“If no one wants to obey my instructions, everyone should be kicked out.” Qin Jiu said in a casual tone, “Later, I will ask the Empress to send over a few more servants like Du Ruo, I feel more at ease with them.”
Du Ruo was happy, her smile was as bright as a flower, she bowed and said: “Mistress, it’s my pleasure to serve you.”
Chun Xi and the other servants frowned.
They all knew if Empress Wei took up the issue, they would definitely be kicked out. Once they were chased out, the lady would not use them anymore.
Du Ruo did not hold high hopes on them, she walked out by herself and strided proudly ahead.
After a while, only then Chun Xi and the others realised what Du Ruo was going to do and hurriedly catch up.
Du Ruo went out of the room and simply asked one of the maids in the yard, : “May I know which room does Xia Lian live in?”
The woman was startled by Du Ruo’s abrupt question, she then pointed in a direction: “The first room in the back house.”
Du Ruo went straight to the back house where the servants lived, she kicked open the door to the first room.
Du Ruo rushed in.
Xia Lian, who was hugging onto the quilt, was still pretending to be ill. She sat up subconsciously, and looked at Du Ruo in confusion.
Du Ruo harshly flipped away her quilt and said: “The mistress will not use a sick servant! Shoo Shoo Shoo!”
Xia Lian furrowed her brows: “ Who are you……” How dare she have the audacity to kick her out!
While she was speaking, Chun Xi entered the room.
She was afraid that Xia Lian and Du Ruo would fight so she quickly grabbed Xia Lian’s arm and said: “ Xia Lian, this is Du Ruo, she was sent here by the Empress.”
Chun Xi lowered her voice and whispered into Xia Lian’s ears: “ You should look for Mrs Su first, don’t go head on against her.”
To defeat a person, one should always look for their master. If she hit Du Ruo, she would be disrespecting the Empress!
Xia Lian was reluctant to do so and her face looked pale. Chun Xi quickly dragged her away before she could do anything.
Du Ruo then calmly walked out from the back house, a bunch of servants had gathered outside, all looking at Du Ruo with intense expressions.
Du Ruo coldly places her hands on her waist, with one finger pointing right at them: “Why are all of you here, there is still plenty of undone work!”
At this moment, the seamstress came by to hand over the new robe.
The mama in charge saw as Xia Lian was rushed out embarrassedly, and that Du Ruo was arrogantly lecturing the others, her expression darkened.
The mama acted as if nothing had happened and greeted Du Ruo, she then followed her back inside.
