王爺你好賤 Chapter 19 – Imperial House’s face completely thrown away

19


“Sister, she don’t know how to swim, what to do?” Zhu JiLan went to Zhu JiXiang and whispered.

Zhu JiXiang glared at her to shut her up.

“Even if the Princess want to kill people, it is none of our business. Go and stand at the side.”

At first, she thought the stream not more than a meter deep, but the moment Zhu WuXin was thrown into the water, and her foot cannot reach the bottom, she realized the depth of water was actually higher than her height. Indeed, she cannot swim. No matter it’s paddling forward or backwards, she is completely a ‘dry duck'[1]. So, when she was sinking into the water, she can only desperately cry for help. She can’t even feel the pain from her back injuries anymore, the only thing she can do right now is keep flopping like Hell. Not letting herself sink any further. But she is a dry duck after all, her flopping didn’t helped much.

When she used up her last breath, suddenly with a splashing sound, a figure jumped into the water. Separated by the transparent stream water, she saw a magnified face approaching hers. Then, something soft touched her lips, wet yet warm tactile sensation, causing her to instantly open her eyes. Someone jumped into the water to give her a breath of air. Then, her lips were covered up with icy cold water again.

Shortly after, she was rescued by him from the water. Just that, the moment she was laid down on the ground, the first thing she did was not to see clearly who is her savior, and also not to curse at anyone.
But to immediately flip herself over on the ground. Only God knows, that short period of time she was lying down on her back, the excruciating pain she felt.

At this moment, Xiao Lian came back holding a pile of food. Seeing her own master lying on the ground, she threw aside the items in her arms and ran towards Zhu WuXin, “Miss, Miss what happened to you?”

“Cough cough cough, Xiao Lian, I …cough cough cough, I’m fine.”

Seeing that she was rescued, all the people present let out a cold sweat.
No matter how much the Emperor spoils Ning An, she was out in the public eye. If she really killed someone, it’s inevitable that everyone at the scene will be implicated.

It is fine as the Crown Prince arrived right on time. Ning YeLan saw someone taking care of her, discreetly stood up, and grabbed Ning An to one side, berating her in a low voice, “Ning An, as a dignified Princess, you casually took other people’s life as a joke.”

“Our royal family’s face have been completely thrown away by you![2] You go back to the Palace this instantly.”

Ning An, who already has been covered with a new thin muslin, righteously said, “One smelly servant girl if died, then it’s dead. Nothing so great about it.”

“Crown Prince brother, she dared to make a fool out of me, this is the one making our royal family’s face completely thrown away.”

Ning YeLan instantly scowled, “If you still don’t want to leave, do you want to wait for me to call Old Nine[3] over here?”

“Crown Prince brother, you are biased, I knew you from the start has always dislike me, I hate you I hate you……”

Ning An’s tears came as soon as she willed it, she yelled and cried then ran away.

As for those surrounding Zhu WuXin saw Ning An ran away, they afraid that if the Crown Prince want to put the blame down, they cannot afford the responsibility. So, one by one they asked to be excused, following Ning An to leave.

Ning YeLan’s gaze stopped at the small pavilion a distance away from the stream. After a long while, he retracted his gaze and walked towards Zhu WuXin.
