Quick Transmigration: The Second Female Lead is Poisonous - Chapter 31
In a dark room, Fengguang who had inhaled a sleeping drug was feeling dazed. Originally she was already in a deep slumber and on top of that, she had inhaled the drug, so technically, she shouldn’t be able to wake up. However, she had added an anti-poison trait to this body. It wasn’t much but at least she wouldn’t lose her complete consciousness. When the two men moved her, she had woken up.
“Innkeeper, you’re so quick-sighted. This girl is so tender and soft. She’ll definitely sell for a pretty penny.”
“Women disguised as men are such a common occurrence. You think they can escape my sight?”
“Yes, yes, Innkeeper is the smartest.”
“However, the man in the room is missing. Seeing how he let the woman sleep on the ground, I don’t think their relationship is very strong. So if he comes back looking for her, we’ll just say she ran off.”
“Yes yes yes, Innkeeper really does think of everything.”
Fengguang was feeling hazy. Her hands and legs were tied up against the chair. In the dim environment they were in, the two men before her hadn’t noticed that she was awake. She recognized them. They were the owner of the inn and his employee.
The innkeeper with the moustache gleefully continued. “Only a few days ago, Goulan House was rushing me for fresh products and today, a foreigner actually delivered themselves to me. No one can stop fortune when it comes.”
The employee earnestly added, “Yes, even the heavens are helping Innkeeper make money.”
The innkeeper swept his eyes over Fengguang. “The product this time is very exceptional. She will definitely sell well. Once I get the money, I’ll first pay you and then afterwards… I hear the widows in the east of the city that don’t have money to bury their dead husbands are very beautiful and young…”
The employee’s expression indicated he understood instantly. “If the innkeeper likes to have more company, why don’t you take in a concubine? It’ll be more lively.”
“A concubine, hm, that’s not a bad idea. Very reasonable.” The innkeeper’s eyes lit up.
Suddenly, sword light flashed
Unbeknownst to anyone, a tall man suddenly appeared in the room. His tone was playful as he said, “It’s simple if you want a concubine. Innkeeper, you can die first and then after the deed, I’ll burn a paper figurine to accompany you in Yan Wang’s palace1.”
After a ‘CHI’ sound, a gash abruptly appeared on the innkeeper’s neck and as fresh blood gushed out, he directly fell onto the floor.
The blood had splattered all over the employee who was standing close by. He only reacted after a few seconds had passed. He was sitting on the floor crying out because his legs gave out.
The man casually dug into his ear. “Too noisy.”
His sword left the sheath for a brief moment and when it returned into the sheath, there was the sound of a human head hitting the ground.
The impact of what Fengguang had witnessed made her go pale.
“I nearly forgot there was still a woman here.” He appeared a bit vexed as he went over to undo her ropes. Fortunately for Fengguang, his body blocked her view of the bodies. “Miss Xia, are you able to walk on your feet?”
She quickly nodded her head in reply, afraid that her legs would be the next to be cut down by his sword.
“Good.” Fengguang obediently tried to appease him as he turned to head out when suddenly a hand pulled on his sleeve. Was she really so scared she couldn’t walk…?
He turned to her, wanting to say she’s troublesome but saw that Fengguang was nervously pulling on his sleeve with one hand and pointing in a direction with the other. She carefully said, “I saw that they put a lot of bills in a box over there. We… We can first take the money.”
This way, they wouldn’t need to sell her accessories. Yes, the clothes they were wearing and the money to stay in the inn were all from selling the pair of earrings she was wearing. As for why he didn’t have money, it was because Seven was usually the one who kept it for him.
It was as though a light had shimmered through his dark gem-like eyes and they curved as he smiled. “That is a good suggestion.
