Chapter 300: She Must Die
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Not only did they go for New Year’s visits, but their hands were not empty. It’s not a problem to be generous with gifts.
They were welcomed wherever they went. If it weren’t for the need to visit the Xiao family, the Duke insisted they stay for a meal.
They were very pleased with this in-law. Every year, their gifts never fell short,
and though all the items were edible, each one was cherished like a treasure.
No matter what, good relations must be maintained. However, upon seeing
Qiao Mai, the Duchess glared at her until she left.
Unfazed, Qiao Mai thought it was for the best. She liked the appearance of someone wanting to be angry but not daring to show it.
The Xiao family was even more satisfied with this in-law. Unlike the Duke’s family, everyone would gather in the living room to express their welcome. No one rolled their eyes or showed disdain.
They dared not; after all, General West Gate and Yuan Jiaqi were of the same rank, though one was martial and the other scholarly.
Unlike the Duke’s mansion, where aside from the royal family, they regarded no one highly.
Having not eaten at the Duke’s residence, they wouldn’t eat at the Xiao family either. After the New Year visits, the children eagerly rushed home.
They headed straight for the snowfield. Qiao Mai went along and taught them how to ski while Yuan Jiaqi watched from the side.
When he wasn’t on duty, he would spend all his time with Qiao Mai, like her shadow.
The children played in the snow so much that they learned to ski in one afternoon. Chuan’er even tumbled a few times, but nothing serious happened.
The highly skilled Fengyun brothers slid with finesse. Qiao Mai looked around.
“We’re missing a resting place. I’ll arrange for several wooden cabins to be set up here when I have time.”
Yuan Jiaqi glanced at her, wondering if she meant just arranging or making them appear out of thin air.
Qiao Mai threw him a flirtatious glance, knowing he had many questions, but she didn’t want to say more at the moment.
This New Year was a joy for the children.
However, the Liu family didn’t fare well. As soon as they reported the case, their gate was draped with white cloth the same day.
While other families celebrated the New Year happily, they were mourning, and it was inappropriate to report the death on such a festive day. Fortunately, the body wouldn’t rot on such a cold day.
Yet, the city knew about the Liu family’s loss.
At this moment, Royal Physician Liu seemed deflated like a balloon with the air let out, crying with a mournful face, sitting slumped in a chair. On New Year’s Day, such an event occurred, and a temporary mourning tent had to be erected in the front yard.
Staring at the white mourning tent, he remorsefully pounded his head.
“It’s all my fault. If I had stopped him and prevented him from doing something wrong, this wouldn’t have happened.”
His appearance aged ten years instantly. Just then, his wife walked to the door and happened to hear these words, so she rushed over.
“Lord, what did you let our son do?”
“Sigh. I didn’t tell him to do anything. He volunteered.”
“What are you hiding from me?” “You’re better off not knowing.”
“If you don’t say, I’ll go to the court.”
Madam Liu had suffered from the loss of her son at an old age and had already been heartbroken. Now, her husband knew the truth but didn’t tell her. She grabbed his front clothes.
“Wife, calm down.”
“Quickly say it. What happened?”
He glanced at the living room. Seeing no outsiders, he explained the situation to his wife.
At that moment, Madam Liu stood there in shock. “Our son drugged Madam
“Hush, lower your voice. If people find out, this is a grave crime that can lead to the extermination of our family. After all, Miss Mu is a princess.”
“How dare you? How dare you? We are supposed to be physicians saving lives, yet you planned to harm the child in her belly?” “We only wanted to teach her a lesson.”
“Does she owe us anything?”
“Although she doesn’t owe us, she leaked the prescription secretly.”
“That’s her prescription. Why shouldn’t she decide when we didn’t fulfill our promise on this side?”
“Sigh, it was my momentary greed and resentment that led to the bitter consequences today.”
“Are you saying our son’s death is related to Mr. Yuan’s wife?”
“What else? Our son did this, and immediately afterward, he died. She is most probably involved.”
“Yes, though she has a point, it doesn’t justify killing our son. I must avenge my son.”
“Wife, you better be careful. The enemy is in the dark, and we are in the light.’ “Humph, she must die no matter what!”
“Wife, do you remember the black-clothed men on the streets of the capital some time ago?”
“I remember. What about them?”
“There were ten of our family’s shadow guards among them and others. Four or five dozen shadow guards died. That night, I sent them to investigate Lucky Garden, and they were all wiped out. The Qiao family must have a skilled master.”
“Humph, a master? I don’t believe it. Does their family have a master even more powerful than the top martial artists in the martial world?”
“Wife, it’s better to be cautious.
“Don’t worry. I’ll immediately write a letter to my family. A few people are enough to exterminate that woman’s family.”
Royal Physician Liu listened to these words with great satisfaction. Despite knowing he was wrong, he still felt elated. After all, he lost not only money but a son. This was already a deep-seated hatred.
At this point, he no longer cared about right or wrong. The Liu family couldn’t have dreamed that their opponent was so powerful, unknowingly dooming themselves.
Royal Physician Liu had planned to visit Madam Qiao to ensure the safety of his family. However, with his wife’s words, he suddenly became confident.
Madam Liu is a relative of the Martial Arts Alliance’s leader. Their relationship is not distant.
She still didn’t know that her relative, the Martial Arts Alliance’s leader, had long since passed away, and the deputy leader had also gone with him.
By this time, the martial world was already concealing hidden dangers, and the smell of blood was faintly detectable. Everyone wanted to become the leader and have people obey their commands.
Qiao Mai naturally knew she had caused a disaster. So, when she left Tianshui Town, she bought three squirrels from the platform.
They looked inconspicuous, sitting in the trees every day. However, when it came to fighting and killing, they were powerful.
In the capital, due to the larger mansion compared to Tianshui Town, she bought six squirrels in one go.
These squirrels were herbivores, but they were all fifth-level spiritual beasts.
Fighting against the top-notch experts in the martial world was as simple as drinking water. She now had six sheep and nine squirrels.
They were all fed with her elixirs and pills. Due to the contractual relationship, as her cultivation increased, they benefited as well.
Squirrels were small and could hide in the corners of the house, making them inconspicuous.
They were even better at hiding and taking enemies by surprise than formidable assasins. Qiao Mai was waiting for some people to throw themselves into the net.
Of course, she didn’t tell Yuan Jiaqi about such a significant matter.
She would only mention it if he encountered it. Otherwise, she would keep it in her heart.
On the third day of the New Year, the Liu family sent people to report the death to all families. They went to every family except Lucky Garden. Both sides understood each other’s intentions.
On the fifth day, the Liu family completed the funeral. Still, Madam Liu paced back and forth in her bedroom.
She wrote a letter and received a reply. Although no one was sent, she was informed of a significant event. She was deeply shocked.
She could hold her head high in her husband’s family because she relied on the strength of her maiden family. Now, with the Martial Arts Alliance’s leader and deputy leader killed overnight, she lost the backing.
Not to mention sending people, they were currently overwhelmed with their troubles.
Madam Liu wept bitterly for a while, then quickly picked up the letter to reread it. Overwhelmed by distress, she had overlooked some details in the letter.
When she saw that the leader’s death was the same as her son’s, she immediately slumped to the ground..
