Chapter 108: Bloody Scene

“Cai Ling, do you remember which hand those people touched you with?” Bai Luochu stunned everyone with a single question .

When Cai Ling was questioned, she didn’t know what was going on . She didn’t know how to reply as it was really chaotic earlier and she couldn’t remember who touched her . She had no choice but to reply honestly, “Mistress, this servant doesn’t remember . ”

“Oh?” Bai Luochu turned around and let out a pretentious smile . “If that is so, cripple both their arms . ”

The madam’s face turned ghastly . These guard servants had a sturdier figure than regular manservants and if their hands were crippled, they couldn’t continue working as hired guards any longer . Wasn’t she making things difficult for them?!

When did Luo Chu become so merciless?

The aunt was shocked . Even though Luo Chu was stubborn, she had always been a kindhearted person . Whenever she encountered those beggars on the street, she would be more charitable than those young masters and ladies from the renowned aristocratic clans . The current Luo Chu seemed completely different .

This lass has really changed . This will not do, I have to hurry back and inform my husband . We need to come up with a new plan to deal with her . If only we knew that this would happen . . .

When the madam thought up to this point, she didn’t dare to continue her line of thought .

Bai Luochu took out the dagger at her waist and handed it to Cai Ling . “Do it . Cut off the tendons in their hands and legs . It’s fine to leave them with enough strength to do some hard labor . ”

Cai Ling faltered when she received the dagger and didn’t move for a moment . Commander Ying might have warned her that she would have to face a storm of blood in the near future, but Cai Ling was merely a little girl who hadn’t seen much of the world . It was difficult for her to carry out Bai Luochu’s instructions .

“What’s wrong? Are you scared?” Bai Luochu looked at Cai Ling and she immediately understood what the little servant girl was thinking about .

“When these people were hurting you, they didn’t think of the consequence . Since they dared to make the first move, they should be prepared to be punished . ” Bai Luochu’s anger had already subsided and she spoke casually .

“Mistress, this servant will do it now . ” Cai Ling walked beside these people silently . Those sturdy-looking guard servants didn’t even dare to move . They had no choice but to obediently wait for the final execution .

Cai Ling did what she was told . In the beginning, she hesitated, but afterwards, her hand moved and her dagger swooped down swiftly . Those movements were quick and merciless . The entire courtyard was left with the sounds of dagger cutting up flesh, the anguished wails of the guard servants, and the sound of blood dripping on the ground .

Qianqian and the madam were so frightened that they turned speechless . Had it not been for someone supporting them, their legs would have given in .

Right at this moment, Bai Luochu spoke up . “Aunt, do you know what I have been doing for the month I left home?”

The aunt naturally didn’t dare to make a sound and could only look at Bai Luochu with a horrified expression . Bai Luochu revealed a smile and carried, “So I . . . raised a dog . This dog couldn’t be tamed no matter how I tried . In the end, it turned around and bit me . I became so angry I had it slaughtered . It’s just a pet dog anyway . ”

How can she be talking about a dog? She is obviously referring to us! It seems like Luo Chu does know something . This won’t do, if this carries on, I might end up worse than those guard servants . We have to come up with a plan right away!

The aunt sprang up and wanted to take her leave . However, Bai Luochu wouldn’t allow them to come and go as they please .

“Aunt has always been a kindhearted person . Since you brought these guard servants over, your niece shall not keep them here . Aunt should bring them back . After all, they were punished because they carried out your orders . ”

When Bai Luochu gave the order, the people who were originally howling in pain turned their resentful eyes to Qianqian and her mother . If looks could kill, the two of them would be dead beyond a doubt .

“Of course . Hurry up and follow me . ” When the aunt was speaking, she tilted her head towards the sky . She didn’t dare to look them in the eye .

The madam led the guard servants out of the courtyard, leaving behind a trail of blood .  

When Bai Luochu saw the two of them leave, she brought Cai Ling back into the room . She activated the mechanism once again to release Ying Lan .

“Mistress, is everything resolved?” Ying Lan emerged and immediately asked with concern .

“They will not be disturbing me for a period of time . There is nothing else right now and you may return . Five days later at 5pm, we shall conduct our first meeting here . ”

Ying Lan caught the subtle smell of blood in the air and felt a little suspicious . “Is Mistress injured? I can smell blood in the air . ”

“We are fine . I asked Cai Ling to cripple the hands of those guard servants as they made a move on her when I wasn’t around . How dare they… I asked Cai Ling to personally cripple them . After all, one cannot rely on others to take revenge . ”

“Did you really do it yourself?” Ying Lan turned to ask Cai Ling .

It was obvious that Cai Ling had yet to calm down as she nodded absentmindedly . She then spoke a moment later, “I was a little scared in the beginning . However, I recalled how those people didn’t hold themselves back when they attacked me . Had it not been for Commander Ying who taught me the mantra and martial art moves, I would have died before Mistress got the chance to save me . The more I thought about it, the less afraid I became .

Ying Lan heard the response and laughed rather delightfully . “Hahahaha! Mistress, didn’t I get it right? With this servant girl by your side, it’s like adding wings to a tiger . ”

“Who asked you to speak out of turn? I could see the good in Cai Ling before you said anything . Hurry up and return, don’t waste time . ” Bai Luochu might behave as though it was nothing, but in her heart, her impression of Cai Ling improved once again . In times to come, Cai Ling would definitely become one of her dependable subordinates .

When Ying Lan saw that his mistress was chasing him away, he bade farewell and returned to the Remote Paddy Inn through the tunnel .

After Ying Lan left, the mistress and servant duo had nothing to talk about for a moment . After a long while, Cai Ling broke the silence . “Mistress, this servant will ask someone to clean up the blood at the entrance . ” After she spoke, she turned around and went outside .

Bai Luochu understood that the incident had a considerable impact on Cai Ling’s life . She quickly decided to enlighten Cai Ling .
