Tough Princess : Once Upon a Brothel - chapter 70
Seeing Madam Yang hesitating, Mo Li said again, “Madam Yang, you are approaching old age, and the matter of Young Master Yang has made the people of the Blossoming Peach lose their backbone. So, they have no intention of running the business. Sooner or later, they will be dissolved. Why not let my master purchase it at this time!”
Madam Yang couldn’t help feeling depressed after hearing this. The person in front of her had mentioned all her worries, and she said, “I agree to be bought, but I have a condition!”
“Please say it, Madam Yang.”
“The girls of the Blossoming Peach must continue staying here. If they don’t want to leave, you can’t force them to leave.” So, Madam Yang told him about the conditions of the purchasing.
Mo Li didn’t even think about it, “Madam Yang, trust me. My master will not force others to do what they are unwilling to do.”
They came to an agreement and clinched the deal at three thousand taels!
After have signed and have made his cross, Mo Li left.
Madam Yang summoned Qibao and Xian to support her go to the front yard.
Seeing Madam Yang coming out, the girls went forward and gathered around her!
“I come to tell you a piece of news. From now on, the Blossoming Peach has purchased by others, and I should also take a rest.”
As soon as she said these words, the girls all asked, “Madam Yang, do you abandon us? Since the Blossoming Peach is purchased by others, where can we go in the future?”
“Girls, you don’t have to worry about it. I have talked to that man about the conditions. You can stay here for work. I am old, and we have been through the case of Zijin. I feel keen that my ability falls short of my wishes, but you have to cheer up and be not like this every day,” Seeing the girls be like this, Madam Yang was also very uncomfortable. After all, she had also spent some years with these girls.
Hearing Madam Yang saying so, the girls couldn’t help but weep again.
They didn’t blame Madam Yang, and they just blame themselves for their unkind fate. Because when they finally felt that they could see the daylight, their Young Master had gone.
Now the Blossoming Peach, which was their livelihood, had also been bought. Although they could stay and continue working here, their hearts are empty.
Seeing that the girls were in low spirits, Xian said aloud, “Please! Even if the Young Master is no longer here, we still need to earn our bread. In the past, Young Master thought everything for us. However, eventually, we still need to do some of these things by ourselves. Come on, everybody cheer up, and we can’t resign ourselves to destiny!”
Hearing Xian saying so, the girls all bowed their heads. It was true. They were too dependent on their Young Master so that they were more and more dispirited after the Young Master left.
Seeing the subtle changes on the faces of these girls, Madam Yang knew that Xian was near their thoughts.
She called Qibao to accompany her, and went back to the residence which was bought by Yang Zijin for her before!
From then on, the girls of the Blossoming Peach seemed to be changed totally, and they did the works that they used to do before.
Everything went well, but the mysterious person who bought the Blossoming Peach never showed up!
During these days, Jiang Wei reported the changes of the Blossoming Peach girls to Yang Zijin.
Yang Zijin was very satisfied after hearing it. “Maybe these girls could know what they want only after having experienced these things!”
Soon Yang Zijin was fully recovered!
Yang Zijin, who was in the house, suddenly thought of her elder brother Pei Moning. She thought it would be terrible. With her elder brother’s temperament, he would definitely go to find these mountain bandits!
After a while, she got down and called the pigeons. She bowed her head to think for a moment, and wrote, “When the moon climbs up to the willow, come with the pigeon.”
Watching the pigeon fly away, Yang Zijin meditated that she hoped that his elder brother had not started to move yet!
Jianghu Martial Club.
Pei Moning also was thinking in the room. He was going to disband the students in the martial club, to close the martial club, and to find the mountain bandits who had robbed Yang Zijin with his friends. He wanted to destroy them completely and continue to idle in the country!
Thinking of this, Pei Moning saw a carrier pigeon stop in front of his window. He frowned slightly, and got up to remove the small bamboo tube on the carrier pigeon’s leg and took out the letter.
Looking at the familiar font on the letter, Pei Moning can’t help but get excited. “Is Yang Zijin still alive?” He thought. But on that day, he watched Yang Zijin’s burial by himself. However, how could he explain the handwriting in the letter!
At this time, Pei Moning was very conflicted. He was very anxious to get out of the city and check it out immediately. Finally, the night fell!
Pei Moning chased in the same direction as the pigeons flew, and saw that the pigeons entered a yard. Pei Moning leaped and got into the yard.
Seeing a room with lights on, Pei Moning made a sound at the door on purpose.
Yang Zijin heard the sound outside the door, “Brother, are you here?”
Hearing the sound of Yang Zijin, Pei Moning pushed the door and came in!
Seeing Yang Zijin, Pei Moning took a few running steps, and hugged Yang Zijin tightly.
“Oh… oh… brother… you are going to strangle me.” Yang Zijin coughed for Pei Moning’s reining.
Pei Moning loosed his arms and said excitedly, “Are you okay? I am so happy. I have said there is no way that Pei Moning’s sister died like this.”
“Okay, brother. I regard you as a social elite. Now you just look like a kid.” Yang Zijin could not help but ridicule him. She had never seen her brother be like this!
Then Pei Moning told her about his doubts, “What the hell is going on?”
So Yang Zijin told him that she was about to restore her identity.
After listening to Yang Zijin, Pei Moning tapped hard on Yang Zijin’s head and sneered, “I dote on you so much. As this is such an important thing, you are holding out on me.”
“Big Brother, I didn’t tell you for the sake of everyone!” Yang Zijin said, holding her head painfully.
“For everyone? You have harmed the girls of the Blossoming Peach, and now the Blossoming Peach has also been….”
Speaking of this, Pei Moning suddenly realized, and then he said, “Could it be that the mysterious person, who has bought the Blossoming Peach and hasn’t shown up, is also arranged by you secretly?”
Yang Zijin nodded with a smile.
“You are so smart. It turns out that everything is in your plan!” Pei Moning looked angrily at Yang Zijin.
But they didn’t know that there were two eyes which were staring at what Pei Moning had done to Yang Zijin from the roof!
They greeted each other for a long time. Then Pei Moning asked Yang Zijin, “When are you going to restore your identity?”
“Let’s wait for some days. We could discuss it until everything has been settled.” Yang Zijin replied after thinking for a second.
Then she said, “I still need to bother you to go to the Blossoming Peach to take care of the girls in recent days.”
“No problem, I will definitely go to visit them!”
They chatted for a while. Seeing that it was not early, then Pei Moning left.
When Pei Moning was gone, the person who had been staring at them on the roof flashed into the house!
Unguarded, Yang Zijin was frightened. Only after she found that it was Shuo Ling, she was relieved!
“What? Do you have something on your conscience?” Shuo Ling’s tone was cold.
He had been here for a long time. He heard the movement in Yang Zijin’s house, so he hopped up the roof and lifted the roof tiles to look into the house.
He saw Yang Zi talking and laughing with a man and their movements were intimate. However, Shuo Ling couldn’t help feeling that he thought too much after hearing Yang Zijin calling him elder brother. But he still felt angry.
“It is midnight. You got into my house like a ghost, and you even blame me?” Yang Zijin treated Shuo Ling with disdain and said angrily.
He stayed on the roof for most of the night. Unexpectedly, she complained about him. He pushed Yang Zijin to the bed suddenly. There was a cold light in his eyes, “The person who has just left. Who is he?”
“Who is that person? What is that to you?” Yang Zijin turned her head to the other side.
“You don’t tell me? Then I will eat you tonight!”
Although Shuo Ling had heard Yang Zijin calling him elder brother, he still wanted to hear Yang Zijin tell him by herself.
It was the same trick again. Yang Zijin had no choice but to say, “He is my sworn brother who worships in the society.”
Although Shuo Ling’s face didn’t change after hearing it, he felt so pleased with himself.
He kissed slightly on Yang Zijin’s face, and then he got up with satisfaction and talked about the business, “Empress Dowager is going to hold a welcoming banquet in the Royal Palace three days later. She will give you the name Allure. Zijin, you get ready these days.”
“My lord, you came here so late just for telling me these things?” Yang Zijin also quickly got up and looked at him with a puzzled face.
When asked by Yang Zijin, he froze for a while and coughed slightly, “Otherwise?”
He wouldn’t admit that he couldn’t help coming here because he wanted to meet her.
Yang Zijin was speechless!!!
Then Shuo Ling lay down on the bed with clothes, “It’s late. Let’s go to bed!”
It seemed that Shuo Ling was going to sleep over here again.
“What? Why don’t you sleep?”
Yang Zijin had to lie down beside Shuo Ling tamely, smelling the ambergris of Shuo Ling. She soon fell asleep. When she woke up the next day, Shuo Ling was no longer in the house.
As expected, when it was not yet noon, Duke of Mu let someone send her clothes, rouges, accessories, and some commodities for girls. They also sent her a maid.
The maid dressed her up and took her back!
It seemed that her father had prepared quite well!
The maid took out a white damask dress, and let Yang Zijin put it on.
Yang Zijin, who had never worn women’s clothing, felt awkward to wear it on her body. At this time, she sat in front of the bronze mirror and let the maid dress her up.
“Well. Infanta, are you satisfied with this?” The maid asked Yang Zijin after the make-up.
Yang Zijin looked at the bronze mirror carefully. She saw that the maid had made her hair into the hairstyle of the young ladies. There was a gold lily hairpin on her head, and her face was slightly powdered. She looked pure and fresh. Yang Zijin was a little shocked.
She was so beautiful in women’s clothing. Unexpectedly, she was bland in appearance in modern times, and once she had passed through, she turned out to be such a gorgeous!
Yang Zijin couldn’t help but feel very satisfied with this face.
Everything was ready. Then they walked out of the door. The maid helped her get on the carriage that Duke of Mu had already prepared. Behind the carriage followed a group of guards. Of course, the show should be well put on. Then they headed for the Jing City in formidable array.
When they arrived in Jing City, the people were attracted by Yang Zijin ’s carriages. There were gold and silver on the carriages. A gust of wind passed, and the curtains were gently blown. They could see Yang Zijin who was inside through the gap. She looked so extraordinary and outstanding. Everyone can’t help guessing that it must be a king’s or a minister’s daughter who returned to the city.
The carriage stopped at the mansion of Duke Mu. Some people watched from far away.
Seeing that Duke of Mu and others were at the door, the people couldn’t help wondering who was sitting in the carriage? This person actually let Duke of Mu wait at the door, so it seemed that the person in the carriage must be something!
So, they continued watching.
