Chapter 831: The Matter’s Blown Up
Shi Guangjin simply hadn’t imagined that this miss from the Qiao Estate would be totally different from all the females he had encountered in the past.
She was someone who readily went on the attack, and showed no mercy at all when it came to killing.
How could Elder Hu and him be a match for the other party’s four to five people? Seeing that he was about to get wrecked, Shi Guangjin immediately shrunk behind Hui Feng like he had caught a life-saving straw.
Meanwhile, Hui Feng had yet to figure out the situation when he saw State Duke of Qing’s Estate’s third young master’s cowardly appearance, and he was involuntarily taken aback.
“Step aside!” Yet before he could sort things out, a chilly voice rolled into Hui Feng’s ears like a sudden clap of thunder.
He jolted in fright, thinking: This voice is?
When he turned around to see, his jaw nearly dropped in shock!
“This general greets the crown prince consort!” Hui Feng hastily recollected his shocked expression before stepping forward with cupped fists and a lowered head.
Qiao Mu merely glanced at him with her icy gaze. “This person offended me in front of the palace gate. Should he be punished?”
Hui Feng swallowed his saliva and only felt that things didn’t look too encouraging. Looking at the crown prince consort’s cold-hearted and unfeeling expression, it couldn’t be that in front of this Huabei Gate, she wanted to…
“How did this Third Young Master Shi offend the crown prince consort?” Hui Feng could feel cold sweat about to start running down his forehead, and he scolded every single one of Shi Guangjin’s 18 generations of ancestors in his mind!
This motherf*cking guy just had to be blind and enrage the crown prince consort of all people!
Was this someone who would easily let you off?
“He intended to knock over my carriage, plotting to murder me.”
Plotting to murder? This charge was certainly extremely severe! Hui Feng hastily turned around to glare at Shi Guangjin. “Audacious Shi Guangjin!”
Seeing that the situation was looking grim, Shi Guangjin immediately cried out his grievances loudly. “There are so many carriages coming and going on this official road, so any one of them could serve as a witness! My carriage was the one that was knocked over! How did the situation reverse, saying I was the one who wanted to…”
Slap! Qiao Mu brandished her sleeve, and another big slap struck on Shi Guangjin’s other cheek from a distance.
It was great now, with both of Shi Guangjin’s cheeks completely matching. They had puffed up, just like fermented buns, except for the fact that they were a bit red.
“Did I allow you to butt in?” Qiao Mu asked coldly.
Hui Feng’s eyelid jerked continuously, and he inexplicably wiped the sweat on his forehead with his sleeve.
In the past, he had invariably heard He Tian and them prattling over how their future crown prince consort was not one to be pushed around, and that it was okay to offend anyone else, just not the crown prince consort…
Previously, when he saw the crown prince consort, Hui Feng still couldn’t conceptualize this image concretely. He only knew that the crown prince consort had a rather cold personality and was expressionless towards everyone..
It was only at this moment, after personally witnessing how she dealt with Shi Guangjin, that Hui Feng had finally gained a preliminary understanding of the crown prince consort.
“It’s a misunderstanding, a misunderstanding.” Seeing that this situation was getting a bit out of control, the elderly man hastily went up to smooth things over.
When Shi Guangjin ordered the manservant to crash into the Qiao Family’s carriage while they were inside the carriage earlier, he had tried talking him out of it. Unfortunately, Shi Guangjin didn’t listen, which ended up blowing into this mess now.
At this moment, their State Duke of Qing’s Estate’s carriage was lying on its side, while the crown prince consort’s carriage had come to a stop, so the entire road was blocked.
Consequently, the carriages following after them had no option but to stop. The noble ladies and young misses alighted from their carriages, while the young sirs and young masters dismounted from their horses, watching the commotion over on this end from far away.
The State Duke of Qing’s Estate had truly humiliated itself this time.
“Where are the crown prince consort’s royal guards!” Qiao Mu shouted coldly.
“Here!” Lightning and company assembled behind her with a whoosh, each of them with upright postures and backs as erect as pines and cypresses.
