Chapter 6: I was so good at handling this matter

Shi Qingluo had an even better understanding of Mother Xiao’s personality.

She was a good person, just too kind that she became an easy target for bullying.

She gave Mother Xiao an assuring glance.

She raised her eyebrows at Mdm Wang. “I’m not going to meddle in this matter today.”

Mdm Wang, the wife of the Xiao family’s eldest son, was a famous shrew in the village. She was unrivalled among all the women in the village. Few people dared to provoke her.

Now, seeing this thin and weak little girl was meddling in her business, she flew into a rage.

“I’ll teach you a lesson first, then this b*tch will be next.”

She got up and wanted to shake off Shi Qingluo’s hand that was grabbing her arm, but no matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t break free.

So, she used her other free hand to slap Shi Qingluo’s face.

Shi Qingluo raised her hand skilfully and pushed the back of her palm forcefully.

“Smack!” Mdm Wang ended up slapping her own face.

Shi Qingluo chuckled. “I didn’t expect that you like slapping yourself, on top of being a slut.”

Mdm Wang remained speechless.

Then, full of anger, she pounced on Shi Qingluo and wanted to pull her hair. “Little slut, I’ll beat you to death!”

Shi Qingluo grabbed Mdm Wang’s arm and pulled her in the direction of her pounce. She bent her knees and hit her stomach a few times.

“Ah!” Mdm Wang could not help but scream out in pain from being hit.

Then, Shi Qingluo kicked her to the ground again.

Shi Qingluo snorted coldly. “If I see you bullying Mother Xiao and her daughter again, I’ll beat you up every time I see you.”

Shi Qingluo’s kicks left Mdm Wang lying on the ground. She was moaning while hugging her stomach.

She looked at Shi Qingluo fearfully.

She could feel that this wretched girl was a martial artist.

She was filled with hatred but did not dare to beat her up again. Instead, she decided to put the blame on Mother Xiao.

She was prepared to teach this b * tch a good lesson after Shi Qingluo left.

Everyone in the courtyard was stunned, especially Mother Xiao and Xiao Baili.

This was the first time they saw Mdm Wang being beaten up.

They were also in awe that Miss Shi was very amazing.

After Shi Qingluo settled Mdm Wang, she turned to look at the old granny of the Wu family.

She threatened, “I’m the protector of Xiao Baili. If your Wu family wants to capture her and to be buried with her future husband, I’ll have no choice but to send everyone in the Wu family to accompany Young Master Wu in the afterworld.”

The old granny didn’t expect herself to be so unlucky to meet this jinx again.

She was even more surprised that this little bastard had fighting skills comparable to the Wu Family’s bodyguard, on top of having the little balls that could blow people up.

She snorted coldly. “If you dare to use that thing to blow up the Wu Family, you will also be sent to the prison to await your death sentence.”

Shi Qingluo looked at her as if she was looking at a fool. “Why should I blow it up myself. Since Xiao Baili is going to be buried with all of you, how can she not die the same way. It would be so lonely and depressing if she died alone.

“Wouldn’t it be better if I gave her a few black balls and let her bring the rest of the Wu family to the afterworld as her companions? So what does that have to do with me? Why should I be jailed and executed!”

The old granny remained silent.

Was she speaking a human language? She was too shameless.

Although Xiao Baili was gentle and meek, she was not stupid.

She did not know what little black balls Sister Shi was talking about, but she could tell that this old granny from Wu family was very afraid of them.

Hence, she immediately said, “Even if I have to die, I will also drag the members of the Wu family to die with me.”

She added, “Thank you, Sister Shi, for helping me. I will do this myself. I will not implicate you.”

A hint of a smile appeared in Shi Qingluo’s eyes.

Xiao Baili was very smart and quick-witted. She had a bright future.

The old granny’s face instantly darkened. Clearly, she had not expected this young lady of the Xiao family to react in this way.

However, she did not dare to gamble either.

If this wretch from the Shi family really gave Xiao Baili the explosive black balls, wouldn’t they really accompany their young master to the afterworld?

Of course they wouldn’t want to…

The old granny looked at Shi Qingluo with a gloomy gaze and said, “Last time, you were saving your own life, so it’s understandable. But now, you are meddling with other people’s business. This would definitely offend my Wu Family.”

Shi Qingluo curled her lips in disdain. “What is great about the Wu Family? Isn’t it just a wealthy merchant in the county town? What else could y’all do?”

She curled her lips arrogantly. “Since you say so, then I will really meddle in your business.”

“It’s not just Xiao Baili. If I hear that the Wu family is going to buy more people to be buried with a dead man, I’ll run over and give them the little black balls and let them bring your Wu family up to heaven together.

“If you don’t believe me, you can take a gamble.”

Those innocent young ladies shouldn’t be ruined by the Wu family.

The old granny was holding her anger so much that she was about to suffer from internal injuries. “Alright, our Wu family will remember this. Just wait!”

She had only brought two servant girls today. It was impossible for her to take Xiao Baili away from that f*cking bastard.

She was really afraid that Shi Qingluo would be wicked enough to sacrifice the entire Wu family.

The young master only had one breath left.

If they couldn’t take Xiao Baili away today, they probably wouldn’t be able to find someone to be buried with him.

A priest had said that only a living girl would suffice.

The Wu family would not forgive this little bastard for ruining their plans.

Shi Qingluo shrugged nonchalantly. “I’m waiting. Take your best shot.”

She wasn’t afraid of a wealthy merchant in a small county.

Especially in this ancient era made up of farmers, workers, and merchants, she had plenty of ways to counterattack.

She had many ideas. The worst-case scenario was that the Wu family would cause trouble for her.

She would take out a few things to seek refuge with someone stronger than the Wu family in exchange for protection and suppression from them.

The old granny could tell that Shi Qingluo was not afraid of the Wu family’s revenge.

She felt stifled and aggrieved.

“Let’s go back to the city!”

She snorted coldly and was about to leave with her servant girls.

Third Son Xiao’s wife, Mdm Wu, who was still holding Xiao Baili’s hand, changed her expression and hurriedly went forward to stop her. “Old granny, why are you leaving so soon?”

The old granny glanced at her. “If you can’t make up your mind, then don’t come to the Wu family and say that you are interested in a marriage.”

If she didn’t know that the Xiao family had a military general in town, she would have vented her anger long ago.

After saying that, she didn’t stay any longer and brought her people out of the courtyard.

Mdm Wu and Mdm Wang were left in a daze.

At this moment, an old man in his sixties held Xiao Erlang’s hand and brought a few middle-aged men in.

Mdm Wu saw him coming and looked away. She forced a smile and said, “Village chief, why are you here?”

Chief Xiao glanced at Mother Xiao and Xiao Baili who were crying miserably on the ground.

He looked at Mdm Wu and Mdm Wang with an ugly expression. “Hanzheng has already moved out and cut off his ties with the Xiao Family. Why are you here to sell his sister?”

Mdm Wu said embarrassedly, “Chief, you’ve misunderstood. We didn’t sell her.

“My mother-in-law helped her arrange a good marriage. We’re here to help her in it.

“Well, they didn’t agree, so the people from the county’s Wu Family also left.”

One hundred taels of silver just flew away. Her heart was bleeding.

Chief Xiao said with a cold face, “You know very clearly what the truth is.”

He warned again, “Xiaxi village’s Xiao Clan has never had a history of selling girls to be buried with the dead, and we won’t allow such things to happen. If you dare to disobey, our clan will not tolerate it.”

Mdm Wu was unhappy, but she could only nod and smile apologetically, “Yes, yes, I understand.”

Then she ran out to support Mdm Wang, whose stomach was still hurting.

When she passed by Mother Xiao, she gave her a sharp look and uttered, “B * tch, you watch out.”

Then she left the courtyard.
