Wake Up, I'm the Former Villainess - Chapter 7
The sky showed sunlight rays, and the brilliance of morning light and night pearls intertwined, falling on Nian Nian. The little small girl had a snow-white face, misty apricot black eyes, and her childish look was extremely cute.
Teng Yuanzhou suddenly understood why Xiao Yi took the risk to hide her. Who wouldn’t like such a cute little girl?
He shook his head, “You are Xiao Yi’s friend, so you are my friend. I listen to Xiao Yi.”
Nian Nian thought: How old is Teng Yuanzhou? Obviously he’s older than Xiao Yi, but he unconditionally obeyed Xiao Yi’s arrangement?
Teng Yuanzhou scratched his head and said with a smile, “Since Xiao Yi asked you to hide here, you can safely hide. I will bring you food. With Xiao Yi here, he will definitely be able to protect you.”
He also trusted Xiao Yi’s abilities too much.
Nian Nian couldn’t help being curious, “How old is he? Why do you believe in him so much?”
Speaking of that, Teng Yuanzhou struggled, “You don’t know, Xiao Yi always has a way.”
Seeing that Nian Nian didn’t believe it very much, he was unconvinced and said, “Not long after I was on duty in the kitchen of the prince’s residence, the dessert was stolen, and the steward investigated the matter. They probably thought that it was easy to bully a newcomer, so those old people united to frame me saying that I ate the dessert in the kitchen to drive me out. When Xiao Yi knew about it, he gave me an idea to make the real thief show his face.”
Nian Nian curiously asked, “What idea?”
Teng Yuanzhou said, “He asked me to go to the steward and tell him to spare me once, and if I commit another crime, he would expel me. As a result, within a few days, the dessert was stolen again, and everyone said it was me again. The steward scolded me and said that I was going to suffer myself, the batch was mixed with medicine, which he was going to use to poison mice. If I ate it secretly, I would suffer soon. As a result, the person who really stole the dessert was frightened, sneaked out to vomit and was caught.”
Nian Nian wondered, “The steward helped you?”
According to reason, Teng Yuanzhou was a newcomer, how could the steward cooperate with him to lie?
Teng Yuanzhou said, “The steward originally refused, but Xiao Yi went to see him and gave him a list of how much silver he deducted and what he took back from the kitchen. The steward was caught off guard and had to help me once.”
Nian Nian couldn’t help but glance at the sleeping Xiao Yi: I really can’t see that the little guy is so capable. It takes a lot of time to investigate these things.
However, she asked doubtfully, “How could he be beaten like this if he is so powerful?”
Speaking of that, Teng Yuanzhou became angry, “He got in others’ ways and was framed.”
Nian Nian was surprised, “Is there such a thing?”
“That’s right,” Teng Yuanzhou said angrily.
After Xiao Yi arrived at the palace of Shunning County, he was assigned to the stables. He had a beautiful appearance, was not afraid of hardship, was not afraid of fatigue, did not cause trouble, was practical and willing to do it, and was appreciated by the steward. He was willing to study hard and took good care of the horses he was responsible for. The steward recommended him to the county lord Fuxiang and transferred him to take care of the county lord’s love horse red tail.
After Xiao Yi arrived at the Palace of Shunning County, he was assigned to a stable. He had a beautiful appearance, he was not afraid of hardship, tiredness, and troubles. He was steadfast and willing to work. He was willing to study hard and took care of the horses he was responsible for so smoothly, and the steward recommended him to Princess Fuxiang, who was transferred to take care of the princess’s horse, Hong Wei.
Unexpectedly, that actually harmed him.
Originally, Princess Fuxiang’s horse was taken care of by a son of a royal family named Duan San. Duan San was robbed by Xiao Yi of his work, so he regarded him as a thorn in his eyes. He united with a group of royal family sons to secretly make trouble for him and make trouble for him everywhere.
The contradiction broke out in an arrangement given by Princess Fuxiang the previous day. She asked Xiao Yi to take Hong Wei and accompany her to Xiyuan for a ride that afternoon. Duan San heard the news and immediately got mad. This honor had always been his.
Duan San got jealous, moved crookedly, and quietly fed Hong Wei with croton during the night. With Hong Wei having diarrhea, Princess Fuxiang was furious, and personally drove to the stable to hold him accountable. Xiao Yi realized that there was something wrong with Hong Wei, and pleaded with Princess Fuxiang to find out the truth, but Princess Fuxiang thought he was a sophistry, so she indiscriminately punished him.
Nian Nian: … The original owner really succeeded. At a young age, she almost killed someone because a horse had diarrhea. No wonder Xiao Yi almost bit her finger off from hate.
Teng Yuanzhou’s eyes were red when he said, “Xiao Yi was beaten to death. Duan San did not let him go. He encouraged the steward to move him out of his original house and throw him into Liyuan. Liyuan is originally a place for people who are seriously ill and have no family to pick them up. It’s a remote and dilapidated place. Few people come here. When they came here, they basically lived and died on their own. If the second girl was not kind enough to give medicine and he was not lucky enough to meet you, Xiao Yi might have died.”
Nian Nian’s eyes moved slightly, “The second girl?”
Teng Yuanzhou nodded and looked at her with sympathy, “You are also suffering. You have followed the princess. Over the past year, the people around the princess have changed and they didn’t have a good end. No wonder you have to run away. If you follow the second girl, how can you fall into this situation?”
Nian Nian’s mood was subtle: No matter how cruel the original owner was, she was still a little girl who was just seven years old. How can Teng Yuanzhou describe her as a great devil? And this second girl is quite popular at a young age.
