Chapter 98: The Western Nobleman and the Unfortunate Princess (9)
A glint flickered across Yu Chu’s eyes.
Sasha’s gaze was too bothersome, like that of a slithery viper eyeing its prey. Yu Chu felt goosebumps form all over her skin.
Sasha’s voice also brought the stiffened Yin Sha back to her senses. The black-haired maid cast a wary and fearful look towards Sasha, appearing as if she hadn’t understood the latter’s words.
Yu Chu cooperatively shrunk backward, and she similarly revealed a fearful and puzzled look on her face.
Sasha beckoned to them and said with a smile, “If you come over, I will take care of you from now on.”
She pointed to the men outside the cell and slowly added, “With me watching over you, they wouldn’t dare to touch you~”
Her soft, smiling voice was gentle and filled with comfort.
Yin Sha’s eyes instantly lit up.
Yu Chu, on the other hand, pursed her lips.
She clearly remembered that those men seemed to be afraid that they might become one of the empire’s ‘citizens’ in the future. Not to mention dragging them out and touching them; they didn’t even dare to approach them. This was enough to prove that they were safe and sound for the time being.
Perhaps Yin Sha found this kind of guarantee too worthless, like an empty promise that the other party could renege on a whim.
However, Yu Chu would rather believe in this ‘worthless’ law than someone of unknown origin.
Humans were unpredictable by nature.
She quietly cast a glance at Yin Sha sitting next to her and noticed that the latter was a little swayed by Sasha’s words. However, there was still a trace of hesitation on Yin Sha’s face. She seemed worried that this might be a trap and was afraid of the dangerous consequences. She even turned and looked back at Yu Chu.
Yu Chu sneered in her heart and moved her body slightly, making it seem as if she was in a hurry to get up. Yet, when she supported herself up from the ground, her hands didn’t manage to support her weight, and she fell back down again.
Sure enough, when Yin Sha saw that, she immediately struggled to get up and took advantage of Yu Chu’s fall to walk up to Sasha.
Yu Chu looked away and remained silent.
This woman…really renders me speechless. I don’t even know where to start…
Yin Sha was afraid of Sasha, but she was even more fearful of Sasha taking Ai Chu under her wings. Then, she would be left alone to fend for herself in this dismal situation.
Thus, she didn’t hesitate to leave Ai Chu behind, pushing the latter into her dreaded situation.
Yu Chu lowered her eyes and heard Yin Sha timidly say, “Lady… Lady Sasha…”
She even respectfully addressed the other with honorifics.
Sasha cast a meaningful glance at Yu Chu sitting in the corner.
One of them had a malnourished and sickly appearance, while the other had a pleasant, ruddy complexion. However, it was obvious at a glance that the one sitting at the corner was more attractive in terms of appearance.
But…this one is also not bad.
Sasha reached out to pull Yin Sha and made the latter sit beside her on the soft rice straws. Yin Sha naturally understood Sasha’s position in this cell, so she was quite flattered by this gentle treatment.
Her fear gradually disappeared, and she turned to look at Yu Chu with a smug look on her face. She was very complacent about her good fortune. She then retrieved her gaze and looked towards Sasha, eager to express her gratitude.
However, Sasha wasn’t looking at her at all. Instead, she was smiling at Yu Chu. “Little Beauty, pay attention and watch carefully~”
Yu Chu was dumbfounded. Yin Sha also couldn’t help but reveal a puzzled look.
Compared to the women’s startled cries and the men’s gasping sounds outside, it was as silent as the dead inside the cell. Only Sasha’s face was reflected in the deathly pale moonlight, her expression a bit peculiar.
The other women bowed their heads and remained silent.
Sasha licked her lips and suddenly turned over. The dumbfounded Yin Sha was pushed down firmly. Even though she was lying on the soft straws, she still felt waves of pain. Her eyes widened in shock.
Sasha straddled her, her cold hands snaking into her clothes. She pinched Yin Sha’s waist and turned to look at Yu Chu and intimately said, “Look carefully and serve me properly tomorrow~”
Yu Chu’s calm expression finally cracked.
Her three worldviews were utterly shattered.
Hi everyone, hope you had a nice weekend! Oeff… this arc has a much darker tone than the previous two arcs~ So far, my fav is the mermaid arc, which one is yours? XD
Btw, my friend, Dreamer, has just finished translating one novel called Reborn to Love Lord Qiansui and she is currently busy translating I Married an Exasperating Eunuch. Feel free to check them out if you are looking for something new to read!
- Reborn to Love Lord Qiansui is a novel about Zhao Zimu, the female lead, who is reborn and wants to repay the male lead for his kindness in her past life. The male lead is a powerful eunuch at court. They call him ‘Lord Jiu Qiansiu’, which meant that he was ranked below one person (the emperor) and above everyone else. Many people hate him because of his power and the female lead will melt his heart gradually. It is a slice of life story with very good reviews on novelupdates.
- I Married an Exasperating Eunuch is a novel about Chen Hui who time-traveled into the body of someone who had been sold by her father to a eunuch. She used her wits to bootlick the eunuch and flatter him to live a good life. This is a romance novel with a comedic undertone. If you like thick-skinned and witty female leads, then this is the novel for you (^_^)~
That’s it for today! Till Wednesday~
