Chapter 123: Yu Yunxi Is Caught

Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation

After thinking about it, Yu Yunxi opened the window and left with a grave expression on her face. However, as soon as she climbed out, she saw more than a dozen bandits blocking her way. The person in the lead was one of the people she met at the beginning.

“Hmph! I was wondering why you had such tender skin. You even dared to say you’re the Vice Leader’s man! You’re a spy! Tie her up!”

Yu Yunxi’s expression changed.

‘How did they discover me so quickly? They clearly didn’t notice anything earlier…’

Yu Yunxi’s gaze was dark as thoughts raced through her mind. Suddenly, an outrageous idea appeared in her mind.

‘Could it be…’

When she looked up, she saw a few bandits approaching her. She said icily, “Since you discovered my identity, I have nothing to hide. You should know that the people you kidnapped are from Marquis Jian Zhong’s Residence. Princess Consort Rui is also among them.”


‘Why did the Vice Leader capture Princess Consort Rui? She’s from the imperial family!’

The bandits’ expressions changed immediately.

At this moment, a tall and thin man walked over and smacked one of the bandits’ head and said, “What are you panicking for? As long as we kill this woman, who would know that we kidnapped Princess Consort Rui?”

The man was stunned by the slap. He looked up, ready to lose his temper, but when he saw the other party’s face clearly, a fawning expression appeared on his face immediately.

“Brother Fei, why are you here? What orders does the Vice Leader have for us?”

‘This man is the Vice Leader’s man?’

Yu Yunxi studied the other party.

Brother Fei snorted. “Vice Leader is very angry. How did you guard our base? How could you let someone sneak in?”

“Brother Fei, we know our mistakes! We didn’t expect this woman would be so bold as to claim she was the Vice Leader’s man…”

Yu Yunxi’s expression grew even more solemn as she listened to them. Not only did they know she snuck in, but they also knew she was a woman. At this moment, she was even more certain of her speculations. Flames of fury burned in her heart immediately.

When the group of people came to tie her up, she remained expressionless and did not struggle.

The door was kicked open, and Yu Yunxi appeared in front of the Jian family again.

“This… County Princess, you…” Lady Zhang stared at Yu Yunxi with wide eyes. She thought that Yu Yunxi would be able to help them a lot if she scouted for information outside. Unexpectedly, Yu Yunxi was caught so quickly.

‘As expected, she’s useless…’ “Go in.”

A bandit pushed Yu Yunxi in.

Yu Yunxi’s eyes flashed with killing intent, but she quickly suppressed it. She slowly walked to a corner and sat down.

The bandits looked around and made sure no one was missing before they closed the door. This time, they made sure to lock the door.

“County Princess, didn’t you go out to scout for information? How did you get caught?” Lady Zhang asked awkwardly. If one listened carefully, one would be able to hear the resentment in her voice.

Yu Yunxi ignored Lady Zhang and studied the room coldly. Suddenly, she saw a hole in another corner. The hole was only the size of a fist so no one could escape from it. However, it was not difficult to send messages through the hole.

“County Princess, I’m sorry. We’ve implicated you,” Jian Xin said. She was sweating profusely and her breathing was weak, but she still apologized to Yu Yunxi. Her expression was one of guilt at this moment.

Yu Yunxi took the initiative to check Jian Xin’s condition before she tapped a few acupoints.

With this, Jian Xin’s pain eased a little.

Yu Yunxi grabbed Jian Xin’s hand and whispered, “Princess Consort Rui, are you injured? I suddenly remembered that I have medicine to treat external injuries…’

Upon hearing this, Lady Zhang said anxiously, “Medicine to treat external injuries? That’s great! Earlier, Si accidentally cut her hand! County Princess, hurry up and give Si the medicine.”

“Oh? Is that so?” Yu Yunxi turned around, sweeping her cold gaze across Lady Zhang and Jian Si. Her gaze was sharp and carried a silent sense of oppression. It was as though she could see through people’s thoughts.

Jian Si’s eyes flashed briefly before she quickly turned to the side and whispered, “Mother, it was just a small injury. There’s no need to trouble the County Princess.”

“How can you say it’s a small injury? You’ve been practicing the zither since you were young,” Lady Zhang said sternly.

Yu Yunxi found their exchange amusing. She said icily, “Marchioness Jian, we don’t even know if we can get out of here alive, but you’re actually thinking about the Third Miss playing the zither?”

Lady Zhang frowned and said unhappily, “Didn’t you say that you’ve called for reinforcements? We’ll definitely be fine.”

“Reinforcements? We don’t know if they’re here to save us or kill us yet,” Yu

Yunxi said.

Upon hearing these words, the expressions of the people in the room changed.

Jian Zhong had been an official of the imperial court for many years, he was naturally much more quick-witted. He frowned and asked solemnly, “County Princess, what do you mean?”

“Nothing much. I just wanted to say that the reinforcements from Prince Rui’s Residence might not be able to find their way here,” Yu Yunxi said indifferently. Then, she looked at Jian Si with a piercing gaze.

Jian Si’s body stiffened, and her expression grew even more unnatural than before.

At this time, Jian Xin launched into another painful coughing fit.

Yu Yunxi turned to look at Jian Xin. Jian Xin’s appearance reminded her of herself when she was pregnant with Yu Junjin. A hint of gentleness could be seen in her eyes as she softly said, “Hold on a little longer. Someone will definitely come and save us…”

“Do you really think so?” Jian Xin gripped her sleeves tightly, wrinkling them. Her beautiful eyes were wet with tears.

When Yu Yunxi looked into the other party’s eyes, she saw despair, causing her heart to tremble. It seemed like Jian Xin had resigned herself to death.

“Jian Xin, listen to me. Even if you don’t have a child, there are still many people who care about you. Qian Qing still has something to say to you,” Yu Yunxi said anxiously as she grabbed Jian Xin’s hand.

“County Princess, why are you mentioning your maidservant at this time?” Lady Zhang said unhappily.

“Shut up!” Yu Yunxi snapped as she turned around to glare at Lady Zhang. Her eyes shone with murderous intent.

Lady Zhang froze, clearly frightened by Yu Yunxi’s appearance.

Yu Yunxi said through gritted teeth, “Your eldest daughter is dying, but you don’t care at all. All you care about is your other daughter’s hand injury!”

“Xin said she was fine, right? As a mother, how could I not worry about my daughter?” Lady Zhang retorted.

“Enough! What kind of situation do you think we’re in now? Shut up,” Jian Zhong reprimanded Lady Zhang, trying his best to suppress his anger.

Lady Zhang, who was scolded by two people consecutively, naturally became even more unhappy. She sat down next to Jian Si sullenly.

‘Si is still the best. No matter what, Xin has married Prince Rui.. She’s no longer part of the family…’
