王爺你好賤 45 – The more it's prohibited, the more the urge to do it

45


Although it has been said before, Crown Prince has warned Zhu WuXin not to think about the matter of that laughter anymore.
But humans are just like this, the more it’s prohibited, the more the urge to do it.
The more you can’t know, the more you want to know.
Even with the threat of life and death, perhaps as long as it haven’t reach the doorstep, you won’t really feel the fear.
Thus, after a few quiet days and all sorts of inquiries, Zhu WuXin acted on this afternoon.
She knocked out a maidservant who was delivering lunch meal, then put on her clothes and ran straight away to that courtyard.
But upon approaching the yard, she saw the door of the courtyard was affixed with a seal.
This was not the only strange thing.
Even the chain has been changed.
In addition to that, the weeds have been cleared and the walls have been cleaned out of dust.
If not for the desolate smell accumulated over a long period of time that penetrated deeply into the walls, Zhu WuXin would have thought herself searching the wrong place.
What is really happening?
Full of suspicion, she went back to her bedroom.
The moment she returned, she immediately tied up the maidservant then dragged her to the side of a corner, waiting for her to wake up.
Once the maid woke up, Zhu WuXin didn’t even gave her the opportunity to be shocked and directly asked her, “Where is the person in that courtyard, that you sent meals to everyday?”
“I, I don’t know ah. I was only arranged to send meal starting a few days ago. Today, today ….”
Actually, what the maidservant really wanted to say was “Why the Earth are you wearing my clothes, couldn’t be the one who knocked me out was you!”
Zhu WuXin took the sword she borrowed and slashed upwards from the shoulder, interrupting the maidservant’s irrelevant words.
With the expression ‘If you don’t tell me the truth, I will disfigure you’ on her face, she asked, “Do you who was the person being locked in there?”
“I, I don’t know.”
“Nn?”
The Palace maidservant was scared by Zhu WuXin’s imposing manner, started crying.
“I really don’t know ah. Miss, can you be kind and let me go ba.”
“I just know it, that all the servants who sent meals to that courtyard will somehow inexplicably died.”
“I don’t want to send ah, but the eunuchs have put down the order. If I don’t send, then I will be thrown into that courtyard.”
“I’m afraid ah…”
Zhu WuXin saw her cried like it’s raining, it can be heard from her tone that it gave off the same feel as the Crown Prince at that time.
Who exactly was that person, to be able to terrify the people in the Palace to this point?
“What else do you know?”
“I, I don’t know.”
Zhu WuXin took a look at her face and knew that the Palace maidservant still have things she didn’t said.
Putting the knife directly on her neck, “If you don’t say it, I will immediately throw you into that courtyard.”
When she heard that she will be thrown in, the maidservant jumped up in fright.
“Don’t ah, Miss don’t! I’ll say it, I’ll say it.”
“I came into the Palace not very long ago, but all the eunuchs and maidservants will warn me that I definitely cannot take a step into that courtyard, nor have anything to do with the courtyard.”
“The courtyard is a taboo in the Palace, no one can discuss about it or they will be beheaded.”
“I also heard from a jiejie who sent meals before said that the man in the courtyard have a name. That was said by the jiejie before she died in his hands.”
Zhu WuXin’s expression went cold, “What name?”
