Reborn: Femme Fatale First Daughter - Chapter 711 - The Mysterious Nunnery
Chapter 711 The Mysterious Nunnery
Mo Xuetong didn’t know that Qin Yufeng had warned Mdm Yu. When she returned to King Xuan’s Manor that day, she asked Mo Feng and Mo Ye to keep an eye on Old Madam Qin. According to the time, if Old Madam Qin was really shocked, she was most likely to take action at that night. However, what surprised her was that before she got news about Old Madam Qin, she received news about Mdm Yu.
It was said that Mdm Yu burnt some letters and even secretly dug out some things buried in Old Madam Qin’s backyard. Then she set them all on fire and burned then to ashes. Those things were similar to what Yu Feng gave to Mo Yufeng. Mo Xuetong had already investigated it clearly. Originally, it was Yu Feng who gave these to Mdm Yu.
Of course, the evidence was in line with that that Mo Yufeng knew.
The frame-up was affirmed at once!
Without the so-called “evidence” in Mdm Yu’s hands, the matter about Mo Yufeng could not bear closer analysis. On the one hand, it helped Mo Xuetong; on the other hand, Mdm Yu got rid of this matter. No matter what the result was, it had nothing to do with her, let alone the Qin family.
It changed from a situation where both sides were injured to a win-win situation. It was most likely Qin Yufeng’s move.
Only this man could easily solve the problem between her and the Qin family!
Originally, Mo Xuetong was very grateful to the Qin family. Generally speaking, the Qin family had taken her in when she had nowhere to go; furthermore, they had had her well-fed; on the surface, they treated her well; and Old Madam Qin had taken good care of her, but Mdm Yu was the exception.
Because of Auntie Fang, Mdm Yu had always been hostile to Mo Xuetong. When she first woke up, Mdm Yu was the one who was plotting against her and almost killed her. In her past life, she had allowed Yu Sirong to harm her at will and ruin her reputation again and again. The girl had even disfigured her. Mo Xuetong would never believe that Mdm Yu was not involved in this matter.
In this life, Mdm Yu didn’t harm her as obviously as she did in the last life, and Yu Sirong had gotten what she deserved. Later, Mdm Yu even forced Auntie Fang to leave the Qin Manor for the sake of the entire Qin Manor. But no matter what, Mdm Yu had never been kind to Mo Xuetong, and the latter did not have a good impression of the former.
To be a hunter or a prey, in this life, Mo Xuetong had placed herself in the position of a hunter. If Mdm Yu insisted on going ahead with her plan and wanted to support Yu Feng and Mo Yufeng, Mo Xuetong did not mind giving her push again to make her doomed eternally. In her past life, she had learned a lesson paid for with blood, and she understood that being benevolent would only make others think that she was easy to bully, and would be bully her to death.
However, since Mdm Yu had already indicated that she would withdraw, Mo Xuetong did not pursue the matter further. In general, there was no direct grudge between Mdm Yu and Mo Xuetong. Mdm Yu was just Auntie Fang and Mo Xuemin’s accessory. Furthermore, it also related to the entire Qin Manor that had done her a favor and Qin Yufeng who was extremely resourceful.
If possible, Mo Xuetong did not want to be Qin Yufeng’s enemy.
The present situation was as good as it got!
Mo Ye reported the other message to Mo Xuetong the next morning. In fact, she had returned after midnight. However, when she returned to the courtyard, Feng Yuran’s people were already waiting outside. Knowing that Feng Yuran had returned, she did not bother them and returned to her room to rest.
The next day, after Mo Xuetong woke up and washed up, she came to tell her.
“Is it really a very small nunnery?” Mo Xuetong frowned as Mo Lan was combing her long hair. She looked at her pale face through her makeup mirror and asked.
“It’s a very small nunnery, but it’s heavily guarded. Mo Feng and I didn’t dare to get too close to it. At the gate of the nunnery, there were many well-trained guards. They looked like secret guards,” Mo Ye answered after thinking for a while.
The two of them went there as they followed Old Madam Qin’s sedan chair. If Old Madam Qin had not led the way, they would not have thought that they would have found such a small nunnery in the middle of nowhere. The nunnery was not big, and there was only one main hall. Besides, it did not have many worshippers.
Old Madam Qin’s sedan chair stopped at the door and she went in with an old maidservant, without even taking a personal maidservant.
The one who opened the door was a very old nun. When she saw Old Madam Qin coming, she did not say anything and let them in. Mo Ye and Mo Feng were far away from them. However, by the light, they found that the nun and Old Madam Qin seemed to be familiar with each other. The nun naturally let them in and closed the door behind them.
“Then… didn’t you hear anything?” Mo Xuetong asked after pondering for a moment.
“We stood too far away, so we didn’t hear anything. But Mo Feng and I didn’t dare to go away, so we stayed at the door of the nunnery until Old Madam Qin came out in the middle of the night. The one who sent her out was a nun whose hair hadn’t shaved, and there was another nun who was holding a lantern by the side. Under the light, we couldn’t see them clearly, but it seemed that the woman with hair was not young as the nun holding the lantern helped her walk.”
Mo Ye was not sure about the situation in the room. The light was dim and it was so far away that she could hardly see anything clearly. Fortunately, she and Mo Feng were both martial artists and had better eyesight than ordinary people. They could vaguely see the general situation.
“Did you, did you feel… that woman’s behavior… is different from others?” Mo Xuetong asked as she pondered.
“Different?” Mo Ye thought for a moment and answered hesitantly, “I… I don’t think… Old Madam Qin was going to… visit a friend. When she walked out the room… Old Madam Qin even… bowed to that woman respectfully. It’s more like… that woman’s status is higher.”
Mo Ye wasn’t sure about it. As such, she was afraid that she would mislead her mistress. Then she added, “I couldn’t see it clearly. That’s what I felt. I might have seen wrongly.”
Old Madam Qin already had a very noble status. She had a son of a third-grade official, as well as a grandson who was a talent and prepared to soar into the skies. Even noble madams like the Fu General’s wife did not dare to receive a big bow from Old Madam Qin.
However, in the dark night, Mo Ye saw that Old Madam Qin had given a bow to the woman who had been sent Old Madam Qin out. How could Mo Ye not suspect that she had seen wrongly? What kind of status did the woman own that Old Madam Qin even bowed to her respectfully? She even bent over and was about to kowtow to her. Even though Old Madam Qin was quickly pulled up by the nun, she still stood up and gave a bow.
“Do you remember the location of that nunnery?” Mo Xuetong took a deep breath and closed her eyes excitedly. When she opened her eyes again, they were still as calm as water!
“I’ve kept its location in mind. Do you want to have a look, My Lady?”
“Not now, I’ll go there in a few days.” She had thought about whether she should go or not. Even if she went, it was not now. Old Madam Qin just went last night, and if she went to that place today, she was obvious telling others that she had been paying attention to Old Madam Qin’s move and had been keeping an eye on her. Even the slightest movement in that place would attract people’s attention.
Mo Xuetong did not want any change to happen before she was fully prepared.
Some things had been in her mind for a long time, and she was not in a hurry now, so she did not mind waiting for a few more days.
Mo Ye thought for a while and asked, “Then I’ll ask Mo Feng to keep an eye on that place. You can know immediately if anything happens.”
“There’s no need. Even if you keep an eye on that place, you won’t find anything. However, if Mo Feng goes there and is discovered, it will alert them.” Mo Xuetong took a hairpin from the dressing table and handed it to Mo Lan. She couldn’t help looking at the bracelet on her wrist with a thoughtful look in her eyes.
She didn’t mean to say those unpleasant words, but she did not know what to say!
If the situation over there was really as she had guessed, the slightest movement would immediately scare the people away. When they left, it would not be so easy to find them. They would be more cautious. The fact that Old Madam Qin had not visited them for so many years showed how careful they were.
No one knew about their existence. However, they did exist. This also indicated another fact—some people had been protecting them and did not allow them to be disturbed by the outside world. Was this their unique way of self-protection? Mo Xuetong did not comment. However, she pressed hard on the corner of the table. There was a wave of anger in her heart. She could not spit it out even if she wanted to.
An unconscious hint of indifference and mockery unconsciously painted her face!
Noticing that Mo Xuetong was angry, Mo Lan waved at Mo Ye, who was about to speak, gesturing for her not to say anything else. When she saw that Mo Ye had left, she quickly combed Mo Xuetong’s hair. Glancing at Mo Xuetong, who looked clearly distracted, in the mirror, she also left quietly.
Mo Lan was very convinced of Mo Xuetong. No matter what decision Mo Xuetong made, she would support her. Her mistress was no longer that coward and useless young lady. What she should do was to listen to her mistress and carry out her orders. Mo Xuetong was often distraught and dazed recently. It was obvious that she had encountered a difficult situation.
If she wanted to say it, she would naturally tell it to them. If she didn’t say it, it meant that it was useless to tell it to them. Then what they could do now was to serve her well. As for other things, Mo Xuetong had her own way to deal with them.
Mo Xuetong did not think about it for long. Soon, she called Mo Lan and the others in. Mo Yu placed breakfast on the table. Mo Xuetong had half a bowl of porridge and told them to remove it. Tomorrow, she would return to the Mo Manor to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival. She would take some things that were useful for her.
Mo Xuetong was Consort Xuan, so it was impossible for her to return to the Mo Manor on Mid-Autumn Festival and leave Feng Yuran alone in King Xuan’s Manor. Otherwise, Feng Yuran would not agree, and it was also a breach of etiquette. As such, Mo Xuetong would return to the Mo Manor to celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival tomorrow. Mid-Autumn Festival was considered a big occasion. On that day, the Mo Manor would also invite other close relatives to dinner.
It was a lively reunion. It was the same idea for girls of the Qin Kingdom, who had gotten married, returned to her parents’ home for Mid-Autumn Festival.
People would find a time within two or three days before Mid-Autumn Festival to go home and get together with their relatives and friends. If a family had many daughters married off, their daughters would make an agreement to go back to their parents’ home on the same day. Now that Mo Xuetong was the only married daughter of the Mo Manor, she didn’t have to go to so much trouble. Furthermore, she was the noble Consort Xuan. All she had to do was inform the Mo Manor before she went back!
However, there were still some things that she had to take. Furthermore, she had especially gotten someone to send a letter to King Chu’s Manor. Mo Xuetong had already prepared for this for a long time. Her maidservants took the order and left. They were all prepared to be assigned their tasks…
