The Cannon Fodder and Villain’s Happy Ending - Chapter 96
Qin Jiu waved her hands and said, “ It’s okay. There is no need to tell my aunt about such a small matter.”
Later, Qin Jiu asked someone to clean up after her, she only ate the snacks that she had brought from the palace for dinner.
The two little maids in the corner winked at each other and exchanged weird glances.
Just like pebbles thrown inside a lake, there were ripples forming in Guan Xiang courtyard. Not only did their servants know about the dinner incident, the servants from the other yards also heard about it.
During breakfast the next morning, Qin Jiu didn’t allow the servants to serve her. She just took a breakfast box from her stash and asked Du Ruo to follow along as she headed out.
They went out from Guang Xiang courtyard, headed east, passed by a few small alleyways and trails, until they arrived at a small bamboo forest.
They looked at each other and smiled, Qin Jiu carried the breakfast box and hid behind a fake stone, Du Ruo, on the other side, stood in the middle of the path.
Moments later, a servant dressed in green carried a food basket and walked towards them.
The servant in green instantly saw Du Ruo.
Of course she knew who Du Ruo was, everyone in the residence knew that this hot tempered servant was awarded to the third mistress as a reward by the Empress. As soon as Dou Ruo arrived at the Marquess Residence yesterday, she already kicked Xia Lian out from Guang Xiang courtyard.
The servant carefully walked forward, she knew that Du Ruo wasn’t someone easy to deal with.
Seeing as she walked to the side of the fake stone, Du Ruo rushed forward and blocked the servant’s way, she sternly said: “ Is everyone in Marquess residence pigs?!”
“If this was so, I’m curious as to what Mrs Su eats, is she intentionally trying to embarass my mistress!” Du Ruo reached out and tried to snatched her foodbox.
The servant in green was shocked, she stepped back and finally came to a realisation: Du Ruo is here to cause trouble!
A disdainful expression was plastered on her face.
It was just normal food, Mrs Su didn’t lessen the third mistress’s food portion. The cooks would sometimes make mistakes. No matter how she tried to justify, Mrs Su would be in the right, the third mistress had nothing compared to her.
However she didn’t dare to say these thoughts out loud to Du Ruo. If Du Ruo destroys the food box, Mrs Su can’t punish Du Ruo and she’ll naturally be the unlucky one.
The servant begged Du Ruo: “Dear sister, let’s talk it out…….”
Du Ruo didn’t budge and tried to snatch away the food box in her hand. The servant was afraid that the food in the basket would spill and quickly put it aside on a stone pier. After, she grabbed Du Ruo’s arm and walked to another direction so that they were away from the food box.
“Sister, your wish is my command, is there a problem with the third mistress’ meal? The servant smiled apologetically, “This is a minor issue, I will mention it to Mrs Su and she’ll punish the cooks!”
“Don’t be angry, it’s bad for your health.”
The servant was busy coaxing Du Ruo, and had no idea that Qin Jiu was hiding behind the fake stones, she quickly switched the two food boxes, and hid back behind the rocks.
Du Ruo saw as Qin Jiu had completed her mission, her gaze flashed, she continued to murmur angrily: “Not a single cook in the Marquess Residence can make good food, what a shame!”
At this moment, ten feet away from them, came a short and fat woman, she shouted: “Ying’Er! Why are you so slow! Mrs Su is already awake!”
“I’m coming!” Ying Er quickly replied.
She quickly turned over and picked up the food box, she didn’t notice that the foodbox was lighter, and rushed away.
After Ying’Er and the plump woman went inside the yard, Qin Jiu walked out with a new food box.
Du Ruo smiled and thought to herself: No wonder the Empress is so fond of her!
Du Ruo took over the food box in Qin Jiu’s hand, and the both hurried off to another direction, they walked to a deserted place, only then, they opened the food box.
Mrs Su’s breakfast was scrumptious, there was a snow white pau, a bowl of wontons, a plate of sweet and soft golden jujube cakes, and also a bowl of fragrant egg porridge, that goes with a small plate of pickles. The food smelled amazing.
Qin Jiu was satisfied, and went back to Guang Xiang with Du Ruo.
