Black Belly Wife ch 22.1 - Secret of the Earrings

The next morning, when Murong Yun Shu woke up, the first thing she saw was a pair of saddened eyes.

"Miss, you finally woke up," said the feeble Lu'er.

"Mmm," Murong Yun Shu sat up. The next thing she saw was Nie Qing sitting not too far away staring at her with some sort of mystifying coldness as though she's an nemesis of his. Coolly she asked, "Is Master Nie hungry or just didn't sleep well?"

"What. Are. We. Going. To. Do. With. Feng. Ling?" asked Nie Qing one word at a time through his gritted teeth.

"You haven't gone to get her back yet?" Murong Yun Shu frowned. She seemed quite displeased at the way he was treating her fiance's "friend"'s sister.

"Didn't you say you are the one who's in charge?" growled Nie Qing.

Murong Yun Shu looked like she was finally following what he was saying, "She's still in the room."

"Which room?"

Murong Yun Shu cast him a look as though she didn't even want to bother answering his question. She tucked on the clothes that she was wearing then turned to Lu'er, "Get some hot water, I need to bathe and change."

Nie Qing was immediately embarrassed, he blushed and reluctantly got up and headed toward the door while mumbling something to the effect of "this woman is ridiculous."

Murong Yun Shu pretended she didn't hear anything, with a hair clasp she wrapped her hair up, looking like a married woman.

Lu'er looked at her wordlessly, there were towels that she could use, yet everytime when miss bathe she always wrap her hair up like a married woman.... maybe she's just dying to get married.

Nonetheless, there's a more serious problem right now.

"Miss, our baggage was gone and this town is so remote, what are you going to change into?"

"Go look under the bed."

Lu'er blinked cluelessly, but followed her words and looked under the bed. Shortly she exclaimed in excitement, "Miss! It's really under the bed!"

"Mmm, now go get hot water."

Lu'er held the baggage in her chest and looked at Murong Yun Shu hesitantly. Finally she swallowed all the questions that she has and left to get water.


An hour or so later, Murong Yun Shu finished bathing and changed into an outfit that's so white it made her seemed out of this world. A golden ornamental hairpin helped holding up her girly bun, her thick and water fall like black hair flawlessly flowing down her back; there were barely any make up on her oval-shaped face but her elegance came innately. Her look was peaceful and her pace flawless. She looked like a other worldly fairy.

She walked straight toward the table where Nie Qing and company were seated. None of the diners in the hall were able to take their eyes off of her.

"Murong, you are so pretty today!" praised Feng Ling.

Lu'er nodded vigorously in agreement. She has always said that white is the best color on miss.

Nie Qing just kept on drinking his tea without ever looking up.

"We leave in 15 minutes," said Murong and headed toward outside.

"Wait, miss, don't you want to have breakfast?"

Murong Yun Shu frowned lightly, and answered her question with another question, "You seriously have appetite?"

Lu'er blinked, why wouldn't I? Then she suddenly remembered all the snakes from yesterday, the content in her stomach started to roil, " I am done." Now even the steam buns looked like snakes....

Nie Qing abruptly stood up, indicating that he's done eating.

Feng Ling was clueless about what was going on. Her stomach was growling. She slept all night long under the bed and missed dinner. Now she's starving, "Wait! I haven't even started yet! We are going to be in the carriage for hours, what say we sit here for a little bit and let me finish my breakfast? Please, Murong?"

Murong Yun Shu cast her a glance, "I'll be waiting outside." Even the smell of food made her nauseated.

Lu'er and Nie Qing followed her out, leaving Feng Ling there stuffing her face with steam buns and porridge.

When the three of them stepped outside the inn, the coachman was already waiting outside with the carriage. Murong Yun Shu was just about to step onto the carriage when Lu'er asked, "Miss, did you really summon those snaked yesterday?"
