Gu Xijiu recalled that the stepmother of the original owner, who was the current wife of the General, had a special hobby. She liked using the charcoal that was personally chopped by Gu Xijiu during the winter. Her demands were taken strictly so the daily life of Gu Xijiu was to clean herself up before heading into the firewood field to chop the firewood for her mistress.
Gu Xijiu rubbed the area in between her eyebrows. This skinny body was easy to be transformed if she took care of herself a bit more. However, the large birthmark on her forehead was a bit difficult to remove.
She heard some noisy footsteps outside in the yard and a few seconds later, someone knocked on the door heavily and loudly.
Gu Xijiu stood up slowly. It was finally time and the drama was going to start now.
She slowly tied up her hair and washed her face before she proceeded to slowly walk out from the house to the yard.
Some people standing outside the yard were in an intense discussion.
"Did she really go out to look for some other man? Is she not at home?"
"Definitely. Last night she was seen outside the wall. I never expected that this young girl would be so indecent!"
"Sigh, it seems like I should not have given her the chance to exercise her independence by allowing her to stay here alone. Now she had committed a shameful act and put the family to shame!" There was a soft bitter female voice. This was the current, Mrs Gu.
"Mom, seventh sister, fifth sister, there is no evidence yet. We should not simply guess. Let's go to the courtyard and find out." This gentle voice belonged to her second sister, Gu Tianqing.
"I don't believe that Xijiu is such a person! She is usually very law-abiding." This sound was quite cool and bright and thanks to the memory of the original owner, Gu Xijiu could recognize that this was the voice of her fianc.
"My Royal Highness may not know, but some people are born with the talent to disguise their true nature. My sixth sister usually looks cute but who knows what is really on her mind? Dont forget that her mother was someone who abandoned her own husband and ran away "
"Shut up! Come and kick the door!" A loud voice said. It was General Gu, the cold-hearted father of Gu Xijiu that she rarely met.
Good, everyone is here today. It seemed like the person who trapped her wanted to kill her.
The small courtyard had only two common doors which were easy to be kick open. In just a while there were already more than 10 people who had rushed inside and the courtyard was congested
These people came in aggressively but were stunned for a moment when they saw the girl who was standing and leaning against the door. Everyones expression changed - especially Mrs Gu and the twelfth prince, Rong Jun, who was the fianc of Gu Xijiu. Even Gu Tianqings facial expression changed slightly.
General Gu was the first to react. He stared at Gu Xijiu with a pair of fierce eyes and asked angrily, "Whats wrong with you? Why did you not open the door even though you were at home?"
Gu Xijiu stood there holding her arms. She quickly glanced at everyone and finally looked at General Gu and spoke, "General Gu, I am your first precious daughter. Have you ever seen any precious daughter open the door by herself?"
Even though Gu Xijiu looked ugly, she had a pleasant voice. Even now when she spoke, the tone was as cold as though an ice bell had echoed slightly in this small courtyard.
