Chapter 1065: The Beggar In Front of the Marquis’ Manor IV
The skirt’s seam was enhanced with fine, soft, and elegant blooms.
The beggar lifted his head and saw a beautiful face.
He felt in his heart just the way he did back then.
But there was clearly only bitterness left now in this situation.
Lady Yuan pulled a money bag out of her lapel and placed it in front of the beggar. Her voice was warm and soft, like a spring breeze.
“You can’t stay in marquis’ manor, take this money and go.”
The beggar looked at the bag of money that was thrown in front of him. His eyes were red but he did not take it.
A servant behind the girl shouted at him coldly. “Beggar, why don’t you accept the money given by my lady? My lady is Prince Zheng’s most favored woman. If you offend my Lady, marquis will not let you go!”
“Servant!” Lady Yuan frowned and shouted coldly. “Enough.”
“Lady, I’m just…”
“Shut up!” Lady Yuan looked unhappy. There was anger in her eyes.
The servant quickly shut her mouth and she dared not say anything more.
The lady was only a concubine, but marquis always favored her. Otherwise, he would not have ordered everyone to address her as ‘Lady’.
Lady Yuan would be promoted to Manor Lady sooner or later.
So, no one in this marquis’ manor dared to offend Lady Yuan! One word from her would make the marquis kill all those who disobeyed her orders.
The beggar’s body was cold and stiff from the servant’s words. It took a long time before he bent down and picked up the money bag on the ground; his voice was somewhat choked with emotions. “Thank you, Lady…”
Lady Yuan let out a soft sigh and shook her head with a bitter smile.
Ever since the You family had been exterminated and Sir Ye had died without so much as leaving behind a body, she had never been this soft to anyone.
In her life, all that left to do was revenge!
To get revenge, she was willing to lose her conscience and even destroy everyone in the marquis’s manor!
But after seeing this lonely and helpless beggar, her heart softened.
And that was all she could do for him.
Lady Yuan turned around and walked past the beggar without so much a glance back.
The skirt’s horn that was enhanced with finely shredded petals floated passed his eyes and disappeared along with the light breeze, only a whiff of fragrance remained.
The beggar covered his eyes with his hands as tears flowed through his fingers. He stumbled to the ground and started weeping inconsolably. The tears kept flowing, but he was still unable to make even the slightest sound of grief.
No matter how warm the sunlight was, it could never warm his heart.
They did not even need to see each other again.
Five years ago, he had escaped death and cultivated for the whole five years. He then returned to Tianyue Kingdom only for revenge.
He was like an evil spirit crawling out of hell, with no other thought except revenge!
But the woman he had once loved the most had become his enemy’s woman.
How ridiculous was that?
He was laughing inside, but his tears flowed uncontrollably and he seemed to be venting out all the pain he had kept in those days.
Not far away, Lady Yuan, not knowing why, turned her head to look back at the beggar behind her.
When she saw the beggar was lying on the ground and crying out as if in pain, she frowned. “What’s wrong with him?”
The servant sneered disdainfully. “Maybe it’s been a long time since he has seen so much money that it made him excited for a while. Lady, this kind of person shouldn’t…”
Lady Yuan raised her hand and slapped the servant’s face.
In the blink of an eye, a mark of five fingers appeared on the servant girl’s cheeks.
She kneeled on the ground in fear and kowtowed in front of Lady Yuan.
