She only wished to marry the Ninth Prince and no one else.
Yet unexpectedly, things changed greatly from what she had planned. The Young Mistress did not want Lord Ninth Prince and along with it her plans and ideas.
However, her heart belonged to the Ninth Prince long ago. That vulgar Young Master Hou was someone whom she would never accept.
She did not wish to marry to that kind of a man.
Huan Meng Yue walked about aimlessly in low spirits, ignoring the serving girls who were beginning to grumble beside her. Her mind was filled with the noble image of the Ninth Prince but unfortunately, she never had the courage to look at him straight in the eye…
If she was to get married, then it would mean that she would lose any shred of hope to be together with the Ninth Prince. Why did she live under the charity of someone else? Why did she act cautiously and meekly throughout her life?
Isn’t it because she believed that there would be hope in the future? Since she would no longer have one, why bother to continue living?
When Huan Meng Yue thought till this point, a vicious emotion that she had never felt before began to surface.
The group were walking past the large pond of the garden, Huan Meng Yue looked at her surroundings before jumping into the pond when the serving girls let their guards down.
When Lou Xiang reacted, she screamed, “Someone please help! Miss Meng Yue fell into the water!”
Bai Cheng Feng did not sleep a wink last night.
He had been busy with the investigation ever since he left the banquet yesterday. When he rushed to the mountain cave that held more than a dozen corpses, as expected, he confirmed that all the deceased were spirit masters.
Not only were there commoner Spirit Masters, there were also non-locals within the group.
Most of them were in a state that made it difficult to identify them. When he finally managed to identify one, it was a grand-nephew of Imperial Censor Wang who had been reported missing.
Therefore, Bai Cheng Feng went to the Wang Estate for a visit and to investigate for clues.
Coincidentally, the Huan Estate was just beside the Wang Estate while the back garden of the Huan Estate was only separated by a wall from the Wang Estate.
Bai Cheng Feng had no intention to visit the Huan Family but when he heard the cries for help saying, “Someone please help… miss… fell into the water, someone help…”
Miss fell into the water?
Was that Huan Qing Yan?
This was a good chance for him to get close to her so Bai Cheng Feng did not hesitate to take action.
He was currently a Six Star Spirit Master and easily reached the back garden of the Huan Estate with a few jumps. When he saw Lou Xiang, he recognized her to be Huan Qing Yan’s servant which led him to further confirm that the it was Huan Qing Yan who fell into the water.
Without a word, he dived into the water immediately.
Very quickly, he managed to pull up a slender figure with him out of the surface. The person was wearing green and had a fair white face. Although unconscious, her palm size face and attractive features made her exceptionally alluring.
However, this was not Huan Qing Yan!
Bai Cheng Feng frowned and finally remembered after searching his memories, wasn’t this that timid servant girl who was Huan Qing Yan’s studying companion? Bai Cheng Feng had his sights on the Huan Estate, so he made sure to do his homework on Huan Qing Yan as well as the people around her.
However, that timid girl never gave him a strong impression, in addition, he was not interested in weak women as this type of women could not help him at all.
Yet unexpectedly, when he saw this little girl with an exquisite face and a soft body, it was a new type of allure for him.
However, he was still someone who had seen his fair share of beauty so the attraction ended there. Since it was not Huan Qing Yan, he had no intention to waste anymore time, as he was about to throw the girl onto the shore towards the group of serving girls, his mind suddenly shook for a moment…
