The porcelain cup fell to the ground with a crisp cracking sound.
“What did you just say? Say it again!” Mrs. Qiao angrily looked at the two nieces who were kneeling down.
Du Shiwu didn’t reply, just hung her head and wiped the corners of her eyes without tears.
Du ShiQi said aggrievedly: “Auntie, my sister and I were not those people who like to complaint. It was indeed the second cousin’s behaviour that not only humiliated our Du family, but also greatly disgraces the Qiao Family.”
“Yes, even we sisters were shameful, after all, it was because we accidentally broke in first, but the outsider said that the second cousin ordered someone to drive us out of Qiao’s Mansion for the sake of the slave servant girl?”
Mrs. Qiao kept her face down and did not speak.
Of course she knew that Fang Han was not an insignificant maid, and she also knew that these two girls did not accidentally enter Qiao Bai Rong’s study by mistake.
However, Qiao Bai Fong did not admit these two cousins from Du Family, but also expelled them directly out of Qiao’s mansion. Wasn’t this too much?
Moreover, she also saw that that mean servant Fang Han wasn’t pleasing to her eyes for a long time. Made her irritated with hatred. So, now it seems that this is a good opportunity to sack her.
After making up her mind, Mrs. Qiao said to her servant next to her: “Is the second young master in the house right now?”
“No, the second young master is probably not in the house at this time.”
Mrs. Qiao nodded, “Go see Fang Han if she’s around. Bring her here.”
Fang Han was ordered to “rest” at home again today and did not follow Qiao Bai Rong out for business meetings.
After had a long chat with him, her heart felt a lot more settled, and she was no longer as anxious as before.
She was so used to be busy in the past, and now she suddenly became idle, which made her quite unaccustomed. Finally, she went to Qiao Bai Rong’s study and took a few books to read and lay lazily on the bed.
Of course, it was Qiao Bai Rong’s bed. She didn’t have her own room now.
After reading a few pages, she heard the noise coming from outside. She was puzzled and was about to get up to see what was going on. Unexpectedly, several stout waists to push in and grabbed her.
As soon as Fang Han saw Mama Wei, she knew indeed from LanXuan Garden, and as expected that Du was going to take the opportunity to deal with her, but her only saviour, the big boss, wasn’t around. This is not good.
“Cheap maid, you’re slacking around in the broad daylight and dare you can lie down on the master’s bed?” Mama Wei scolded her and slapped her arms.
Fang Han was in pain. She wanted to struggle but she was held firmly by other servants. From the corner of her eyes, she saw Lu He’s figure flashed away at the door. She was slightly relieved when she knew he was rushing to rescue her.
However, the current situation is still very troublesome, she was afraid that some suffering is inevitable.
She secretly scolded herself for having a very good life in the past few years, and she didn’t even have the basic vigilance.
“Bring this low-rank cheap maidservant back to LanXuan Garden and let Mrs. Qiao teach her a lesson instead of second young master.” Mama Wei said proudly.
Fang Han was taken to Mrs. Qiao at the end.
Mrs. Qiao sat on the chair and did not look at her. She slowly blew the hot tea in her hand, and said, “I heard that you urged the second master to throw the two cousins out of Qiao’s house yesterday?”
Fang Han was speechless. This called the desire and sin. Why? After the two Du ladies appeared yesterday, apart from sneezing, she did not even make any other sound during the entire conversation. How could this called urging the Boss to throw them out?
However, since Mrs. Qiao’s purpose was to take the opportunity to expel her, any excuses from her were useless at this moment.
“Why don’t you speak, so you agreed as well?” Mrs. Xiao sneered.
No matter what she said, the result will be the same isn’t it? Fang Han rolled her eyes secretly.
However, in order to delay the time, she could only act to cooperate, pretended to be horrified: “Madam, slave has never been disrespectful to the two cousins, I don’t know where madam heard about this?”
Mrs. Qiao’s face sank, and she put her tea cup down, “Are you questioning that I fabricated the facts to frame you?”
That’s what it is! Fang Han was disdainful in her heart, but on the surface she still had to say respectfully: “Slave had no intention of this.”
“Well, let this be aside beforehand. It is said that when Mama Wei saw you, you were actually lay on the second young master’s bed reading books.” Mrs. Qiao took the books on the table that were brought back by the Mama Wei. “These books belong to the second young master’s study. You are just a little maid. You dare to touch master’s things. You are indeed very brave.”
“Mrs. Qiao, slave had the permission from the second young master to take the book.”
“Nonsense, his two cousins were driven out of Qiao’s mansion not even step into his study. How could it be possible to lend the book to someone like you? A low cheap slave servant maid?” Mrs. Qiao shouted.
In fact, this is simply finding fault. No one in the mansion knew that Qiao Bai Rong’s rule about forbidding anyone to come near to the study, except for Fang Han.
But precisely because of this, Mrs. Qiao hated her even more.
Fang Han sighed softly, “If the lady doesn’t believe slave, you can ask the second master after master returns home.”
“No, I do not know that the second master is so generous to his servant, because he had never been that kind before. Also, our Qiao Mansion does not need such a lazy and liar slave. Somebody, drag her down and beat a hundred boards.” Mrs. Qiao stared at her with a sneer on her lips.
Everyone could not help but grasped.
Generally, a maid will be disabled after being beaten up to thirty or forty boards. A hundred boards will obviously kill Fang Han.
Even if Fang Han really made a mistake, she wouldn’t be guilty of death. Obviously, Mrs. Qiao’s purpose was to get rid of her. Whatever she said before were all excuses.
Mrs. Qiao was in a very good mood, she was looking forward to Qiao Bai Rong’s reaction when he found her beloved maid killed after returning home.
Since he didn’t give any respect of the Du family, she would not make him feel any better either.
Fang Han was pushed in the yard, watching two servants walking towards her with thick sticks. Although she had known for a long time that she would inevitably to have bitterness as a maid, but she still couldn’t help being frightened when she saw the stick.
Oh my God, if the big boss doesn’t come back soon, she might really be beaten to death!
When the stick fell on her body, although it made a loud noise, Fang Han unexpectedly found that it was not as painful as she thought.
Of course, it still hurts but it’s still tolerable.
She turned her head slightly suspiciously and met the sight of the servant who held the baton, and saw that the party winked at her quickly.
When her mind turned, she immediately guessed that the other party must be Qiao Bai Rong’s people.
These domestic servants who were specialize in execution obviously were well aware of the skills of beating people. It looked the same at first glance, but the result can be quite different.
However, even though this was specially arranged, a hundred boards were still not easy to handle. When he hit fifty or sixty times, Fang Han began to sweat in pain, and her lips were bitten from time to time, and her mouth was full of blood taste.
Just when she felt that she was about to faint, suddenly she heard a commotion. Before she realized what had happened, she found that the person who hit the board had stopped immediately.
“Second Young Master, you can’t go straight to the Mrs. Qiao’s courtyard. You have to let the maid give an announcement…” a panicked female voice shouted.
Fang Han heard Qiao Bai Rong’s icy voice.
“You can all break into my room to catch my people when I am away, so why can’t I come to look for people?”
Fang Han and the servant who was incharged of baton were relieved when they heard this voice.
Anxious Qiao Bai Rong rushed into the courtyard soon. When he saw the person he imagined was pressed on the ground, her clothes were stained with blood, his expression was even more gloomy and scary.
He pushed away those who were holding Fang Han, and hugged her up with distress.
“Han Han, are you alright?” Saw her face pale as white as paper, he suddenly had the urge to kill.
“Second Young Master, I really didn’t urge you to drive the two cousins out, nor did I steal your book…”
Oh, the savior finally came to rescue. Fang Han couldn’t help being moved to tears, and her current tragic condition made her look even more miserable.
Qiao Bai Rong saw that she was full of tears. Not only felt as if someone had pierced his chest with a knife and then he turned around a few times. The pain made him even hard to breathe.
“Of course you didn’t. I drove those two women out, and I agreed with you to take the book.” He took a deep breath and sneered: “Regardless right or wrong, which stupid fool actually directly ordered to punish you?”
She was beaten in LanXuan Garden, who else gave the order? What Qiao Bai Rong said was obviously not a question, but a curse.
Mrs. Qiao, who had just walked out of the room, heard this sentence and said angrily: “Bai Rong, what is it for you to rush into LanXuan Garden like this?”
“So this is LanXuan Garden? How can my servant be punished here?”
Mrs. Xiao was so speechless, after a long time she said, “Well, it’s not that you have spoiled your servants so lawlessly. There is no distinction between master and servant. What’s it like for a slave not do anything during the day and lay on the master’s bed?”
“Let’s not mention that I let her rest in my room today, but even she was really being lazy in my room. I wonder who can enter my room without permission?”
Mrs. Qiao was speechless.
Qiao Bai Rong ignored her and directly bowed his head and asked Fang Han, “Han Han, who was the one who trespassed in my room and arrested you?”
Fang Han didn’t answer, but just glanced at Mama Wei who was at the side.
Qiao Bai Rong read, cold smile, “Okay, very well. Since you have hit hundred boards to be lazy in the room, so it’s not too much to hit fifty boards for trespassing master’s house?”
Mrs. Qiao heard this and her face changed, “Nonsense! Mama Wei is from LanXuan Garden, what is it got for you to deal with?”
“Mother’s words are so bad, Fang Han was able to take the punishment here. Mama Wei is not a member of my courtyard, and she dared to break into my room. How can she not be punished?” He glanced to the servant beside him. “Hurry up and don’t you press the people down to hit the board?”
The people in Qiao’s Mansion were all aware of the current affairs. Except for Du Family and their maids, the lower class all knew who is the most offensive in this family – The master.
Therefore, someone immediately stepped forward and pressed Mama Wei to the ground and struck her with a stick.
The sound was no different from Fang Han hit just now, but Fang Han knew that Mama Wei could not get through those fifty strokes, and the two servants who were executed were very good skilled.
“Stop it!” Now Mrs. Qiao was anxious. Mama Wei has been by her side since childhood, loyal for decades. Although two of them were masters and servants, but they were actually as closed as sisters.
Mrs. Qiao angrily and hatefully said to Qiao Bai Rong: “Get them to stop, I was the one who asked Mama Wei to go there!”
“I know mother wants to speak for Mama Wei, but even mother didn’t have reason to order anyone to search her son’s room. Mama Wei knew she would be punished even knowing that her master was wrong but also didnt discourage her. So, she should be punished.” Qiao Bai Rong was annoyed that she deliberately killed Fang Han, and naturally it would not make mother feel better. “However, for the sake of Mama Wei’s faithful service to mother over the years, she should be reduced to thirty boards.”
Anyway, whether it was thirty or fifty, she will be dead.
If you dare to hurt HanHan, you have to pay the price, no matter who it is.
Since Madam wanted to kill his beloved, he would use his best way to kill mother and kill Mama Wei who she valued most.
“Second Young Master, it hurts so much…” Fang Han gently pulled his sleeve.
Although it was very pleasant to watch bad guys get their karma, she wanted to go back to rest soon.
“I’m sorry, I will take you back right away.” Qiao Bai Rong’s eyes were full of self-blame and heartache, “Don’t be afraid, I will find the best doctor to let you recover as soon as possible.”
With that, he strode away with her in his arms, no matter how many people were watching.
In the next few days, Fang Han almost lived a life like a pig, lying on Qiao Bai Rong’s bed all day, eating and sleeping.
Qiao Bai Rong was probably afraid that her pain would be severe, and asked the doctor to add presciption to relieve pain and sleep well. As a result, she was drowsy most of the time.
In addition to office hours, Qiao Bai Rong almost guarded her, and when she opened her eyes, she would look at him with deep meaning.
In this case, Fang Han could no longer pretend that she could not see his affection for her.
