Bai Suqing didn’t sense any danger nor did she sense the gaze on her. She was only annoyed that Mu Rulan had such luck to be able to escape danger this time. But so what? She still had thousands of ways to deal with her. The only problem now was time.
The next day. Translated by The Novelst
Early in the morning, Bai Suqing left the house, having been released for the day from school using the excuse that it was the anniversary of her grandfather’s death so she wanted to visit his grave. She bought a bouquet of flowers on her way, and as she walked she left the main route to the graveyard and instead made her way through a remote path.
After walking for some time, she arrived to an area filled with abandoned factories. Looking at the empty, deserted cement factories, she had an on a mystifying smile. She walked in the direction of a closed iron gate.
She knew that after she pushed open the door she would be able to obtain a very useful dog. She could always train a disobedient wolf into a loyal dog, as long as she used the correct methods.
The clanging of the iron gate opening echoed far into the distance. Inside, it was dark, despite the sun shining brightly outside. The atmosphere alone could cause a person’s heart to beat slightly faster.
As soon as the sunlight illuminated the inside of the factory, Bai Suqing was finally able to see the interior clearly. She saw Zhou Yaya sitting on the ground, her back against the innermost wall. Zhou Yaya’s gaze was clearly dazed, directed at the entrance, but Bai Suqing wasn’t able to take a good look at her face. Bai Suqing looked surprised, dropping her flowers as she immediately took large steps toward Zhou Yaya, “Yaya? Why are you here? What happened? Are you alright?”
Zhou Yaya didn’t respond, her cold gaze resting on Bai Suqing for so long that her expression turned stiff, before finally saying, “Why did you come here?”
Bai Suqing felt inexplicably nervous, feeling that somehow something had gone wrong. She pointed at the flowers dropped by the entrance and said, “I… I wanted to visit my grandfather’s grave, but I got lost, so I was wandering around and I ended up here…”
“Really?” Zhou Yaya nodded in understanding. “I see. Can you help me up? This drug makes my body weak.”
Bai Suqing was relieved. She lifted Zhou Yaya and heard her say: “Not sure if I can break the habit…”
Bai Suqing, now relaxed, subconsciously replied: “I’ll help you overcome your addiction.”
Before Bai Suqing could even react, Zhou Yaya was raging, pulling herself away from Bai Suqing’s grasp. The sound of a heavy slap resounded in the empty factory, the force pushing Bai Suqing to the floor. She was completely dazed, but before she could recover her senses, Zhou Yaya had already started to beat her with her arms and legs.
Bai Suqing had no choice but to cover her head in an attempt to protect herself, before she could even begin to react: What- what exactly happened…
“You little b*tch! I’m going to kill you! Go die! Die!!” Zhou Yaya was really trying to beat her to death. The bodyguards hiding behind the door stood motionless. Mayor Zhou had told them: as long as the person didn’t die, let Zhou Yaya be. His precious daughter had encountered such a terrifying situation; of course he wanted the perpetrator cut to pieces.
In order to capture the person who had done this to her, Zhou Yaya had hid in this place for over two days, waiting in ambush. She had thought of countless possibilities, but she’d never imagined that the person was actually Bai Suqing!
Zhou Yaya, in her mind, had subconsciously tied the two incidents involving the same hooligans together. Which meant that if Bai Suqing was the perpetrator, then that meant from the first time they’d met this woman had already plotted to harm her simply because she had talked back to her in impatience?! Too evil, this woman was too evil!
Both her eyes were red with anger, and she didn’t stop kicking Bai Suqing who was sprawled on the floor, like she had a bottomless well of strength. As soon as they noticed Bai Suqing seeming cease movement, the bodyguards came out and stopped Zhou Yaya from injuring her further. She couldn’t kill Bai Suqing. Even if she meant to, Mayor Zhou definitely wouldn’t want his treasured daughter to do it on her own.
Bai Suqing could never have imagined that things had actually gone this way. She had planned everything well, but something seemed to fall short. However, her mind turned quickly: even if Zhou Yaya believed that those people had been arranged by her, there would be no evidence to pin it on her as long as she refused to admit it. That meant that ultimately, nobody could do anything to her!
Bai Suqing was sent to the hospital. After Zhou Yaya had thoroughly vented her anger, she naturally wouldn’t let Bai Suqing die easily. She would definitely torment Bai Suqing slowly, for the rest of her life!
Zhou Yaya asked someone to place a call to the Mu Family, but no one answered. Both elders were away, while Butler Zhou was in the garden, pruning away. So she called Mu Rulan directly instead.
The student council office.
A snowy white hand softly hung up the phone. Mu Rulan laughed out softly.
She took out a 20-centimeter tall puppet doll from her bag attached to strings. She softly pulled at one string, and in response the hands of the puppet started moving. Tap tap tap, the puppet doll walked slowly toward the edge of the table, and then with a pak, it fell to the ground. Both its hands and legs were separated, making it look like a clown with a blood-red lipstick print.
It must be painful to fall to pieces, right? Was it as painful as what she’d been through in the past? Probably not. But not just yet… we’ll do it slowly, my dear. Slowly… so that everyone would follow the lines on her hand. Each of their movements must be under her control, or else… Devote all your limbs and even your internal organs…
Mu Rulan picked up the doll, smiling warmly. Her eyes were on the odd-looking puppet doll, infatuation clear in her gaze…
In the hospital. Translated by The Novelst
Bai Suqing’s injuries were all superficial. It was just that the wounds appeared very serious. She was sitting at her hospital bed, crying loudly like her liver and intestines had been cut. Zhou Yaya, her arms folded over her chest, was standing to the side while looking at her.
“Huhuhu… I really didn’t. You’re so mean, how could you be like that… Huhuhu… I really just wanted to visit my grandfather’s grave, I’m telling the truth huhuhu…” Bai Suqing was almost unable to breathe, she was crying so hard.
The nurse couldn’t help but take a swift glance at the furious Zhou Yaya, before looking back to Bai Suqing’s weak appearance. Bai Suqing was covered in bruises, making the nurse feel that she was pitiful.
In this world, the weak would always try to evoke pity, so they could receive better treatment when compared to the strong. Bai Suqing knew very well how to take advantage of the feelings of others.
