Liu Wei assumed the girl was blankly staring’ at her because she had been “electrocuted” by her handsome appearance in male clothing.
As much as she wants to be ugly, a female crossdressing as a male could nowhere be close. In the past at Qu Jiang prefecture, she frequently had many matchmakers who tried to matchmake her because of her face. Although they all know that he has a son, that did not stop the matchmaker from coming to his residence to attempt to arrange a marriage.
Because of the big commotion in the area, they had attracted many stares from the surroundings. Liu Wei did not want to attract attention. She turned to Rong Leng and said, “Let’s eat first.”
Rong Leng did not make a sound. He carried Liu Xiao Li and walked up the stairs. Liu Wei followed behind.
The shopkeeper was the last, and as he left, he turned his head and ferociously shot a glance at the young girl.
After the four people disappeared, the girl who was standing at the same spot finally came back to senses. Then, she broke out into a cold sweat.
She, she is……
Hearing someone was calling for her at the back, she turned her head and saw Xuan Er carrying another wine jar walking towards her.
Noticing the scattered wine jar pieces next to where Yue Er was standing, Xuan Er jumped, “What happened? Did you break the wine jar? Elder Maid Qin wanted them. It costs twenty silvers per jar. If you let Elder Maid Qin know that you smashed twenty silvers, she is going to skin you alive.”
Yue Er also knew that she would suffer when she returned. But right now, to her, there was something else more important, “Xuan Er, just now I saw someone……”
“Saw someone? Who? Goddess of Mercy? If that was not the Goddess of Mercy, you can save your breath. Right now, only the Goddess of Mercy can save you.”
“No, I saw the first ……”
“Alright, alright. I don’t want to know who you saw. Let’s get back quickly. You are so dead. I don’t want to die together with you. I still need to quickly send the wine to Elder Maid Qin.” As Xuan Er said, she hugged the wine jar tighter and quickly walked out of the restaurant.
“Hey, you wait……” Yue Er quickly chased after her. But when she walked to the restaurant’s entrance, she stopped and frowned as she turned her head looking at the second floor.
She does not know if she had mistaken the person for someone else. The person just now, even though that was a man, that face……
Yue Er had followed the first young lady ever since she was five years old. She could remember clearly the appearance of the first young lady and the man just now obviously has the exact same face as the first young lady.
Yue Er wanted to chase them to make sure, but she is merely a servant girl from the prime minister’s residence. The other party, instead, is a nobility entertained personally by the shopkeeper. Why would they care about her?
At that thought, Yue Er became extremely dejected. In the end, after Xuan Er’s urging, she cannot help but leave. In her mind, she was thinking about how Elder Maid Qin would discipline her when she gets back.
Ever since the first young lady left, none of the people who served the lady had an easy life. After the young lady escaped, those who served her had a board each. Some of them were unlucky and died from that.
It was only because she had the protection of her cousin, who was serving the old lady, that she managed to overcome that disaster. But even so, she is still a cleaning servant girl at the outer courtyard.
When she thought of that, she could not help but recall the gentleman she just saw.
That man, with the young lady, what sort of relationship do they have?
Are you still alive, first young lady?
A girl who stayed in her chambers all year round. How could she go missing in a single night?
Unless, like what those gossipy elder maids said, the young lady had eloped with a man?
Yue Er shook her head and got rid of all the thoughts she had. She turned back and took another look at the tiny restaurant behind her. Her mind had thousands of thoughts.
