Chapter 90 (part 1): Inciting discord
“Murong Qingyan, what did you come here for?!” Seeing Murong Qingyan, Murong Qingxue’s face warped with hatred fiercely glared at her: “I’m telling you now, don’t become complacent! Don’t think that you winning this time is something great! It’s because of my carelessness that I’ve lost to you! I’ll certainly get my revenge!”
“Ha-ha, what’s wrong with your acting today?” Murong Qingyan ridiculed her back: “Truly, should have let Nangong Ye come and take a proper look at you at the moment. Don’t know whether he would still be able to love you so tender once he had seen this sinister expression of yours.”
“Finally you’ve spoken your mind!” Self-satisfaction appeared on Murong Qingxue’s face. “You’ve treated me like this because of older brother Nangong, but, sadly, you’ve greatly miscalculated. Even if you’re not a waste anymore, brother Ye won’t ever have any other feelings towards you apart from loathing.”
“So it’s like this?” Murong Qingyan shrugged without care listening to Murong Qingxue’s provocation: “According to your logic, at the very least, Nangong Ye and I still have a little bit in common. That is, we both loathe each other.”
“What do you mean?” Murong Qingxue knitted her brows, hearing disregard in Murong Qingyan’s voice.
“It’s very simple.” Murong Qingyan’s lips once again curved into a smile: “He, Nangong Ye, can’t stand me, and I, Murong Qingyan, can’t stand him either. Even if he didn’t break off the engagement, I would never marry him.”
No matter whether it was Liu Mei or Murong Qingxue, neither of them believed her words. Everyone knew that Murong Qingyan was head over the heels for him.
“Murong Qingyan, you’re not welcomed here,” Liu Mei said, standing up, as she pointed at the door: “Please, leave.”
Although she spoke unyielding, she didn’t dare to act out of line. She also understood that the current Murong Qingyan was no longer a waste. If she acted out, she might be the one to suffer a loss in the end.
“Ha-ha, concubine Liu, why are you this anxious!” Murong Qingyan not only didn’t leave, she actually leisurely took a seat. “I’ve come today to visit my little sister, and, naturally, there’s something I must let her know of.”
Liu Mei’s expression immediately turned sour as soon as she heard the way Murong Qingyan addressed her.
Ever since the head of the Family started to regard Murong Qingxue with importance, her own status rose accordingly. There weren’t people anymore who would dare to use this word ‘concubine’ in her face. Now, being called like that by Murong Qingyan, she couldn’t help but be reminded her of that girl’s missing mother, Chen Ruoshui.
Unwillingness welled up in her heart, if it weren’t for Chen Ruoshui’s existence, she would unlikely be a mere concubine, forever. Now, Chen Ruoshui was no more, and Murong Qingyan would not remain for a long time in this world as well.
Thinking thus, Liu Mei felt a burst of delight. Since that time, she let a person secretly add a slow-acting poison to Murong Qingyan’s food. Even if Murong Qingyan was no longer a waste now, but so what? She would definitely die very soon, even with her Xuan Li would be unable to save herself.
Noticing a touch of viciousness in Liu Mei’s expression, Murong Qingyan turned to Murong Qingxue and suddenly asked: “Murong Qingxue, don’t know, whether you’ve felt something that there was something amiss with you?”
Agnie’s still speechless corner:
To those lucky souls who had the fortune to miss my previous post (not the chapter), I hereby sum up its general idea (I’ve slept on it, and I’m almost over the scare. Almost.):
Due to a surprising (and frightening) increase in the size of the chapters of IWM (from 1-1,2k to 6-10k words), the count per week will be based on the number of words to translate, which is going to be up to 6-7k words at best, meaning 0,7-1 chapters of the new size or 5-7 old chapters.
Thank you for your patience and understanding! *deep bow*
And even greater thank you to those kind souls who took their time and effort to
pacify cheer me up and heal my bleeding heart! m(_ _)m Since I can’t contact you any other way, do check a reply in the comments section!
