"Okay." Unexpectedly, Nian Xiaomu laughed when she heard what Cheng Xiulu said.
So, she was harboring this thought.
Nian Xiaomu raised her eyebrows and exited the room.
"Madam, your water." Nian Xiaomu lifted her arm and placed a cup of boiling hot water by the side of her bed.
Without looking, Cheng Xiulu reached out for it while lying down.
She let out a piercing scream immediately when her hand came in contact with the cup.
"Ouch!" She retracted her hands in an instant and jumped right out of bed from the burn.
She aggravated the wound on her butt in the process and had no choice but to land back on the bed painfully.
Furious, she had the urge to pour the scalding hot water on Nian Xiaomu. Then, she realized that Nian Xiaomu had already retreated outside the door with her arms crossed as she stared at her.
She couldn't splash the water on her from this distance!
"Madam, why are you so careless? Look at me, I remembered that I was almost scalded by your soup, so I mindfully distanced myself the next time Madam handled something," Nian Xiaomu stared at her and said slowly, a corner of her mouth raised in ridicule. The way she glared at her was so grim that it seemed like she couldn't wait to devour her.
Cheng Xiulu gritted her teeth in anger when she heard her.
Though she had the urge to order Nian Xiaomu again, she was also afraid that she would make trouble out of nothing.
Yet, she wouldn't be willing to let her off just like this!
"Madam, the hair clip that you ordered previously has arrived." A servant of the small courtyard entered the room with a box in hand.
Nian Xiaomu prepared to find an excuse and take her leave when she saw that someone else was here, but heard Cheng Xiulu point at her and say, "Nian Xiaomu, bring it over here."
She stopped in her tracks, her eyes sinking.
Her patience was on the verge of being exhausted.
If Cheng Xiulu still wanted to overdo it, then don't blame her for being rude!
Nian Xiaomu reached out and took the box, walked to the bed, and passed it to Cheng Xiulu. "Madam, your hair clip."
"Are you blind? Can't you see that I am injured and have difficulties moving about? Open it up and let me take a look." Cheng Xiulu looked anxious; it seemed that she cared quite a lot about this hair clip.
"Be careful! This is a diamond hair clip. If you break it, you wouldn't be able to compensate even if you had 10 of them!"
Nian Xiaomu seemed to have understood clearly.
It was something expensive, so no wonder she was so tensed up about it.
She reached out, opened the box, and brought it over to Cheng Xiulu.
An exquisite and lavish hair clip laid silently in the box.
Resplendent rays emitted from the refraction of the light.
"Take it out and put it on me." Cheng Xiulu took just a glance at it and wanted to get up anxiously, but laid back down after she irritated her wounds.
"..." Nian Xiaomu stared at her and stayed still at her position.
She didn't have the time to waste here; she had to return and help Xiao Liuliu change her dressings.
"You can leave after you put the hair clip on for me," Cheng Xiulu seemed to know what she was thinking and yelled at her through clenched teeth.
When she heard this, a hint of smile flashed past her face. She took the hair clip out of the box and clipped it in Cheng Xiulu's hair at will.
"In that case, I shall not disturb your rest."
She took a step back. Before Cheng Xiulu had the chance to regret, Nian Xiaomu took another step and left the room.
As Cheng Xiulu stared at her back view, her expression turned sinister.
She took a piece of paper from the side, wrapped the hair clip, and removed it from her hair.
As she looked at the pressing resplendence of the diamond hair clip, a pleased look appeared at the corner of her mouth. "Nian Xiaomu, let's see how I will tame you this time around!"
When Nian Xiaomu returned to the living room in the main villa, she realized that Xiao Liuliu was missing.
Just as she wanted to ask the butler about this, the butler pointed upstairs. "Young Master brought Little Miss upstairs. He wanted you to head up immediately after you got back."
"..." Nian Xiaomu was stumped for words for a moment. Noticing the queer expression on the butler's face, she went straight up without further questions.
Just when she reached the master bedroom and was hesitating over whether she should knock on the door, a voice filled with magnetism sounded from inside, "Come in."
