Phoenix Against the World Chapter 19
Feng Beiyue lightly glanced at the door and opened it, “Come in.”
Peixiang was overjoyed and hurriedly carried the basket inside.
“This is the food that the kitchen had specially made for Concubine Qin, I deliberately left some for Princess, eat some and see if you like it.” Peixiang said as she put the food on the table.
Three dishes and one soup, this treatment was much better than before. Previously, the Princess would only receive a few cold steamed bread.
Feng Beiyue lifted up her chopsticks with one hand and with the other she propped up her chin, “You stole some food, not afraid that Concubine Qin would find out?”
“Princess must be joking, you are the legitimate master of this household.” Peixiang hurriedly knelt down and knocked her head three times on the ground, her white forehead became red, “Before, this maidservant had a lard of a heart and offended Miss, but I know that a great person like you would not hold a grudge against small, insignificant people like me”
Feng Beiyue used the chopsticks to put some food into her mouth, leisurely eating, it was her first time eating ancient Chinese food, it tasted really good, not bad. She was not afraid that Peixiang would poison her, even if she borrowed ten-times her courage, she would dare not.
“Peixiang, I’m going to tell you right now, yesterday I had wanted to kill you.”
“Yes, yes, thank you Miss for not killing me!” Peixiang continued to kowtow (bow her head on the ground)
“You can get up.” Feng Beiyue motioned her with her hand, “There are a few things I want to ask you.”
“Miss, please ask, whatever this one knows, this one will tell you all!” Peixiang faithfully replied.
After last night, Peixiang had thoroughly understood that this Princess was not the same cowardly, incompetent Miss as before. Certainly, Princess Long’s mansion would have a big change soon!
Concubine Qin and Concubine Snow, at the end of the day, are only the Master’s Concubines. Afterall, this is Princess Long’s mansion, they don’ t have the right to make any big decisions.
When Princess Long was alive, even the head master of the household did not have the right to speak. But now that Princess Long had passed away, she left behind her distinguished identity, her royal blood, the Princess seal, and many riches!
Even though Princess Long had long been gone, the Great Queen (Princess Long’s mother) still misses the Princess and would come to visit during festivals. The emperor would also give a lot of precious treasures to Princess Long’s mansion.
These were not for the Xiao family, but for Princess Long!
In the past if the Princess hadn’t been so cowardly, then it was natural that all the goods should belong to her and be taken back by her. If she did that, not even Concubine Qin would dare to scold her, not to mention a mere servant.
Hmph! If she followed the Princess, in the future when the Princess takes charge of Princess Long’s mansion, then she would also be promoted! She would no longer have to be a timid servant girl!
Peixiang was thinking how bright and beautiful her future would be, at the same time, Feng Beiyue had already seen through her intentions. Beiyue was accustomed to people’s hearts, how can she not know?
But she did not say anything but just simply asked, “These years, all of Princess Long and my money, who was the one managing it.”
Sure enough, the Princess had begun to ask about the money!
Peixiang’s face changed and had forgotten to report what she knew.
Princess Long was loved and revered by the country. Everyone loved Princess Long, so people were very hard-working and the annual taxes given to her were also very large. Her treasury was simply full of riches and treasure!
