Chapter 4: The Fight
In just a moment, Murong Xin Lian returned back to normal.
Looking at that ordinary face without any special trait, Murong Xin Lian’s heart felt another round of unwillingness. Everything about her is better than Murong Qi Qi, but her humble origin is a thorn inserted deep in her heart. Moving slightly, the pain will make her unable to breath, really uncomfortable!
“Second jie, can it be that you are jealous of third jie?! I heard that you really admire Jing wangye, ah!”
Murong Qing Lian with a face full of innocence, grinned.
“Such a pity, ah! Jing wangye and third jie already have an arranged marriage. This is probably the so called fools have fool’s luck! Second jiejie, you and I don’t have that life. We might as well take the time to upgrade ourselves and become the champion on the competition between the four countries. Maybe you will then get an ideal husband!”
Murong Qing Lian has an innocent face, but every word coming out of her mouth is like a thorn. These words seemed like they are consoling Murong Xin Lian, but actually they are fanning the fire. They only lack oil to put on the fire.
Sure enough, the women from great families are not easy to deal with!
Murong Qi Qi continued to put an innocent expression and did as if she didn’t understand Murong Qing Lian’s words.
Being stimulated like that by Murong Qing Lian, Murong Xin Lian’s resentment is like a snowball; the more you roll it the bigger it gets. She also knows that Murong Qing Lian is waiting for her to make a joke of herself, but what the other party has said is the truth. The future Jing wangfei is standing in front of her. This is something that no matter what she do, she can’t ignore.
But even though her heart is uncomfortable, she can’t afford to lose to Murong Qing Lian.
“The way fourth meimei speaks is really interesting. Jing wang is good at everything. The feelings I have for him is like worshipping a hero! Third meimeihave such blessing is her good fortune, isn’t that right?!”
“Hehe……,” Murong Qing Lian chuckled loudly.
“Second jie, if you really like Jing wangye, you might as beg third jie to let her speak good things of you and make Jing wang take you in. Although a cefei1can’t be compared to a zhengfei2, but it’s still more decent than a qie. Meimei’ s planning wholeheartedly for you, ah!”
While bullying Murong Qi Qi, these two sisters are one mind, but privately these two people are not satisfied with each other.
The reason is really simple. Although Murong Tai has seven concubines, but the ones he pamper the most are these two’s mothers and that’s why they are born. And their mothers are also rivals of each other. The two’s struggle will of course continue on the next generation.
Murong Xin Lian saw that Murong Qing Lian is ridiculing her in front of Murong Qi Qi, her expression immediately fell.
“Fourth mei, what do you mean? Are you bullying me because I’m from the illegitimate line? Don’t forget, you are also from the illegitimate line! Later when you get married, you will also only be a qie!”
“Second jie don’t have to worry about this!”
After listening to Murong Xin Lian’s words, Murong Qin Lian snorted. She has long hated Murong Xin Lian’s actions. Now she (MXL) is talking words with thorns, Murong Qing Lian is also not easy to deal with.
“Daddy said as long as I can get a place in the athletics tournaments, he will find me a good husband. But er jie you have trained so hard, but you are still only at the third level. If I were you, I will hide my face in my sleeves in shame and wouldn’t come out to meet with people!”
Murong Xin Lian knows that her talent in martial arts is not as high as Murong Qing Lian. This is also exactly why when they are fighting, Murong Tai will be biased towards Murong Qing Lian. Now Murong Qing Lian is obviously humiliating her, how can Murong Xin Lian accept this?
Seeing Murong Xin Lian grit her teeth, Murong Qing Lian is in a good mood. She put her hand on her mouth and snickered.
“Aiya, I’ve forgotten, second jie is now the number one beauty of the capital, how can this face be hidden? You should let people see it more often! Maybe someone will fancy your beauty and directly carry you into a room. Then you can tell daddy about this!”
Murong Qing Lian has Murong Tai’s love, so she is used to being arrogant. While talking she won’t go easy on people, on contrary is Murong Xin Lian who always wants to protect her ‘virtuous’ image. Faced with the eloquent Murong Qing Lian, Murong Xin Lian can only face defeat.
Cool! Really cool! Seeing these two sisters fighting each other, Murong Qi Qi is the happiest person on the scene. What is this called? Cats and dogs! The more they fight, the happier she is!
They have come with the intention to humiliate Murong Qi Qi, but in the end she was humiliated by Murong Qing Lian. How can Murong Xin Lian accept this? No matter what, Murong Qing Lian let her lost face in front of the rubbish Murong Qi Qi. This is something she can absolutely not accept.
“Use your whip to paint her face!”
While Murong Xin Lian is really furious, a voice reached her ears. Not waiting for Murong Xin Lian to understand where these words come from, her hands began to move. She raised the whip and whipped Murong Qing Lian’s face.
The one who just now was as proud as a peacock, immediately covered her face and screamed. She stared at the whip in Murong Xin Lian’s hand. Her eyes are full of unbelievableness.
“Second jie, you actually want to ruin my looks? Murong Xin Lian, shame on you!”
Murong Qin Lian pulled out a sword and pointed it at Murong Xin Lian.
“Fourth meimei, don’t be impulsive, ah!”
Seeing Murong Qing Lian like this, Murong Qi Qi’s heart almost lost breath because of laughing, but she put an anxious expression.
“Second jie didn’t do it on purpose!”
“Get out of my way! This is none of your business!”
How would the furious Murong Qing Lian listen to Murong Qi Qi’s ‘persuasion’? The sword in her hand stabbed Murong Xin Lian at her soft spot.
“Miss, be careful, ah!”
Murong Xin Lian’s maid Fei Cui anxiously warned Murong Xin Lian.
“Zhen Zhu, beat that maid to death!”
Murong Qing Lian can’t take Fei Cui’s expression. She immediately gave her head maid Zhen Zhu an order.
“Beat her fiercely!”
Receiving miss’s command, Zhen Zhu also didn’t think much, rushed and slapped Fei Cui twice in the face. Her action is fierce and skillful. After a moment, she left five fingerprints on Fei Cui’s face.
“You dare to slap me?”
Fei Cui is now seeing stars because of Zhen Zhu. She followed Murong Xin Lian and has always been a head maid, when has she been bullied like this? She immediately went into a fight with Zhen Zhu.
“Don’t fight anymore! Second jiejie, fourth meimei, if you have something to say, talk, don’t fight anymore!”
Murong Qi Qi hid in the corner. From time to time, she will shout. While she is tired from shouting, Su Mei handed her a slice of melon to soothe her throat.
While Murong Xin Lan’s whip shot out once again, Murong Qi Qi’s voice once again came over.
“Fourth meimei, your face is bleeding. If you don’t treat it, it’ll leave scars!”
Murong Xin Lian’s hand flicked once again and the whip went to Murong Qing Lian’s face. The whip left a print on both side, very symmetrical.
“Aiya, second jiejie, how can you be so cruel?! Even if you’re jealous of Fourth meimei, you don’t need to be like this!”
Murong Qi Qi ‘exclaimed’ in surprise.
With Murong Qi Qi fanning the flames, Murong Qing Lian’s anger is rising. The sword went to Murong Xin Lian’s body mercilessly. A thin hole is left in Murong Xin Lian’s left arm. Finally the sword crossed Murong Xin Lian’s forehead.
