Chapter 262: Because It’s Free
Ning Shu thought about it, then took out a banknote and said, “Here, take this money. From now on, get some food for us once a day. And when you buy stuff, change out of that black outfit. You can go, I don’t want to see you right now.” Ning Shu waved dismissively at the hidden guard.
The hidden guard stuffed the banknote in his clothes. Ning Shu added, “Go to a bank to exchange the banknote for some loose silver, don’t try to buy things directly with the banknote.”
The hidden guard nodded and said, “I know that.”
Ning Shu: …
For some reason, this guy felt really unreliable.
The hidden guard jumped right back out through the window and disappeared.
At night, when Situ Qingyu came, he prepared an abundant feast of exotic delicacies for her. Ning Shu was extremely worried. Someone that was suddenly particularly attentive for no reason was either a traitor or a bandit.
After she ate this, the next scene would probably take place on the bed.
Pei, can’t you feel this ma’am’s disdain? What exists that this big sis hadn’t eaten before?
Situ Qingyu towered over Ning Shu and spoke as if he was giving a great charity. “This general had this meal specially prepared for you. You should just throw your steamed buns away.”
Ning Shu shook her head. “This miss likes eating those steamed buns. I’ve eaten too much of these delicacies in the past, so I’m changing up the tastes.”
Situ Qingyu laughed coldly. “Is it because of the prince regent? I heard that the prince regent had helped you out of a difficult situation at the store. Is that why you like eating those steamed buns so much? Because he helped you obtain them?”
Ning Shu: This imagination, this logic… unbelievable.
She was eating the buns because they were free.
When she didn’t respond, Situ Qingyu took it as silent affirmation and immediately roared, “Mu Yanmeng! You actually dare to look down on this general!? Today, whether you like it or not, you will eat this meal!”
“Ding, trauma points +5. Current number of trauma points is 35.” 2333 showed up again to brush up his existence.
Ning Shu was not used to having a system with such a strong presence. In the past, the system barely made a peep in the duration of the entire task, but this upgraded system was popping up all the time. It was seriously annoying.
2333 seemed to sense Ning Shu’s dislike as it said sulkily, “I just wanted to let you know how the task was going, how could you be annoyed with me? Wuuwuuwuu, you’re hurting my feelings…”
When Ning Shu heard the system’s extremely sorrowful crying, she shuddered. Fuck, this system seemed really shameless.
She had barely done anything, but the trauma points had already reached 35. These trauma points were all the result of Situ Qingyu angering himself.
His own sense of inferiority caused him to be affected by everything she did. Any causal move she made was able to deepen the shadows in his heart.
Tsk tsk tsk. It seemed it really wasn’t possible to become a male lead if you didn’t have a flaw.
Ning Shu lifted her chin and said with scorn, “What’s so special about this? In the past, this miss ate things like this every day. This miss had long gotten tired of this type of food, yet you’re putting it out as if it was so special? What a disgrace.”
Situ Qingyu’s facial color turned ashen. He glared at her as he said, “Every time I see you act like you’re above everyone else, I feel the urge to crush your pride and have you crawl beneath my feet.”
He felt himself inferior and also couldn’t tolerate others acting arrogant? Unbelievable.
