She paid more attention to Shao Wanru than to Shao Caihuan, but Shao Wanru was lowering her head to apply ointment to Shao Caihuan.
Her eyes were lowered, so she didnt seem to notice Shao Yanru looking at her.
“Third Sister, Ill go outside first.
You can join me after you take care of it.
Were sisters, I will not harm you.
I will definitely help you find out who did it!” Shao Yanru said softly, as if she didnt mind Shao Caihuans offense.
“I will change my clothes and come over later!”
“Big Sister, let me go with you!” Shao Wanru put down ointment.
Shao Yanrus face darkened, and her eyes fell on Shao Wanrus face silently and sharply.
Shao Wanru looked right into her eyes.
“Thank you, Fifth Sister.
Third Sister needs to be taken care of, and you can stay here to take care of her!” After a long while, Shao Yanru put on a smile as soft as ever.
She had regained her composure at this time, and would never do anything inappropriate again!
“Big Sister, let Fifth Sister accompany you.
I will be worried if you are going over by yourself.
I was too angry and rude just now!” Shao Caihuan gritted her teeth and said coldly.
She had found something wrong, so she didnt want Shao Yanru to have time to do something unfavorable to her or destroy any evidence.
Shao Yanru looked at Shao Wanru, and then Shao Caihuan with a look of hatred.
Knowing that she couldnt get away at this time, she frowned and said, “If this is the case, thank you, Fifth Sister!”
With that, she turned and walked out.
“Fifth Sister, you should follow along!” Shao Caihuan said.
Shao Wanru nodded, and followed Shao Yanru out of the inner room and went outside.
In the outer room, Miss Yu and Miss Di had already arrived.
They stood tremblingly on the side, but Wang Yuxin had not arrived yet.
Shao Wanru calmly glanced at the faces of everyone in the house and followed Shao Yanru out.
A palace maid was cleaning the venue not far from the porch.
Shao Wanru did not follow Shao Yanru into the room.
She guarded the door, stood by the porch, and her eyes fell on the face of the palace maid who was cleaning the ground outside.
The maid looked around, and when she found that no one was paying attention to her, she was about to turn back.
But she suddenly met Shao Wanrus gaze, and couldnt help but quiver.
Shao Wanru walked over slowly, and the maid lowered her head as she was standing on the side of the road, not daring to move.
Although Shao Wanru seemed young, her aura made the palace maid too intimidated to move.
“I heard your name is Han Dan” Shao Wanrus eyes fell on the palace maid.
“Yes… I am Han Dan!” Han Dan lowered her head respectfully.
Shao Wanru glanced at her silently.
The feeling of being seen through made Han Dan nervous, and Shao Wanru stared at her intently for a long time.
Before Han Dan could breathe a sigh of relief, Shao Wanrus words almost made her fall to the ground.
“If the grass on the wall of this palace sways with every wind, it will surely be uprooted in the end!” Shao Wanru said slowly as she turned around and walked back slowly.
Han Dan stood on the spot with cold hands and feet.
She looked at Shao Wanru, who was going away, in horror, and her hand holding the broom was trembling slightly.
Before things became clear, she really wanted to please these two young ladies at the same time.
Before these two young ladies stood out, this method was actually very good.
Many people in the palace would do the same.
They generally wouldnt expose their hole cards or go all-in on a beauty who hadnt done anything particular yet.
In fact, it was not just Shao Wanru and Shao Yanru.
She had also chosen another young lady.
Sending certain messages to these young ladies to maintain a good relationship with them was just the first step.
But Han Dan was intimidated now.
Shao Wanrus maid had suppressed her before.
Although she had promised to testify, she still hesitated.
Shao Wanru had read her wind, which made her fluster.
Shao Wanru returned to the porch and didnt glance at her again, but the maid still felt that her gaze seemed to be everywhere.
She didnt dare to arouse her suspicion at this time, which would certainly offend her.
At this time, she should go to the back of the house to see if there was any news from Shao Yanru, because when she was in the porch just now, she saw Shao Yanrus maid making a gesture to her.
However, Shao Wanru was standing in the porch, so the maid didnt dare to go to the back of the house or look at Shao Wanru.
She began to sweep the ground with the broom.
Shao Wanru didnt wait at the door for very long before Shao Yanru changed clothes and came out again.
Then, the two of them went to the middle room together.
Soon after they entered the room, they heard hurried footsteps behind them.
They turned around and saw that Wang Yuxin appeared at the door with an extremely grave expression on her face.
Wang Yuxins gaze fell on Shao Wanrus undamaged face.
Seeing that there was nothing unusual with her face, she sighed in secret.
When the Nanny in charge sent someone to ask her to come over, she didnt make it very clear, so Wang Yuxin had thought something went wrong with Shao Wanrus face.
Now that there was nothing wrong with it, she felt relaxed.
She took a few steps forward and saluted the Nanny in charge.
Seeing that everyone was there, the Nanny in charge cleared her throat, and her eyes fell sharply on Wang Yuxin.
“Miss Wang, tell me why did you put incense in the incense burner yesterday”
She came straight to the point.
She had asked the other two young ladies, and known what had happened last night.
“Nanny, I didnt ask anyone to put the incense.
I didnt know what the incense was about.
It had nothing to do with me.
It was just that Third Miss Shao insisted yesterday that it was me, but I knew nothing!” Wang Yuxin looked extremely innocent.
“Miss Wang, this is the palace.
No one can do whatever he wants!” the Nanny in charge looked at Wang Yuxin and said coldly.
Wang Yuxin lowered her head nervously, clasped her hands, and felt a little flustered.
She gritted her teeth and said, “Nanny, I know were in the palace, and I dare not do anything wrong.
Besides, Third Miss Shao and I have no grudge against each other.
Why would I try to hurt her”
Only the testimony of a maid of Shao Caihuan couldnt prove much.
Even if the maid insisted it was her that did it, she might as well insist that the maid had said so to pass the buck.
After all, Shao Caihuans maid was no superior to her maid.
The imperial physician was sitting next to the Nanny in charge.
He stared at the half-burnt incense sheet and didnt pay attention to their conversation.
The incense sheet somehow reminded him of something, but he couldnt recall it now, so he could only continue to think hard with a frown.
“Miss Wang, do you think that just a maid cant prove anything” Seeing that Wang Yuxin was so stubborn, the Nanny in charge banged heavily on the table.
“If this is the case, then dont blame me!”
With a wave of her hand, the maid behind Miss Di took a step forward and knelt in front of the Nanny in charge.
“Nanny, I also saw Miss Wangs maid doing it.
I was standing beside Miss Wang.
I couldnt see it at first, but it just so happened that I saw the maid look up at the people around carefully.
I was surprised, so I paid more attention to her and saw that she took out a small paper bag from her arms and put the things in the bag into the incense burner quickly!”
“Nonsense!” Wang Yuxin froze and glared at the maid.
The maid timidly ducked to the side and looked at her master, Miss Di.
“Miss Di, why didnt your maid say it yesterday Why now” Shao Yanru raised her eyes and looked at Miss Di with doubt in her eyes.
The Nanny in charge also looked at her with doubt.
“Miss Di, what is going on” This was something she had just asked, but she hadnt expected that someone would have asked it last night when this maid of Miss Di had said nothing.
“Last night…it was so chaotic.
If my maid said anything…it would be adding fuel to the fire.
Besides, there was nothing wrong with Fifth Miss Shao then!” Miss Di lowered her head and said.
Judging from Miss Dis timidity, they immediately understood what was going on.
Miss Di seemed to be someone who didnt want to offend others.
She did not say it last night for fear that she would offend Wang Yuxin.
Besides, Shao Wanru just felt uncomfortable at that time and it was not a big deal.
She would probably recover soon.
Thus, Miss Di hadnt wanted to offend other ladies who entered the palace with her.
“Nanny, could you tell from the words of two maids that it was my maid who did it Please do me justice!” Wang Yuxin was still not convinced, and gave Miss Di a resentful stare.
Then she turned to the Nanny in charge and shouted loudly.
Miss Yu, who was standing beside her, seemed to want to say something, but seeing Wang Yuxins fierce eyes, she didnt dare to say anything.
She just lowered her head and pinched the corner of her clothes.
If possible, no one would want to make enemies.
“If it were not Miss Wang, it must be someone else.
When I walked in, I smelled something strange, but all of you said it was okay.
Now it is my Third Sister who had an incident, so the other ladies must have something to do with it.
If it wasnt Miss Wang, could it be Miss Di, Miss Yu, or my Big Sister” Shao Wanrus gaze calmly swept across the people present and analyzed.
Among the several ladies last night, Shao Caihuan and Shao Wanru were the least suspicious.
It seemed possible to be one of the other ladies before the real culprit was found.
She had just been paying attention to the reaction of Miss Yu.
If there was any other lady who could see what was going on that day, it must be her.
She was sitting on the side of Wang Yuxin, and she looked like a meticulous girl.
It was just that she was obviously trying to protect herself by playing it safe!
“If we couldnt get to the bottom of it, youll all be kicked out the palace.
The palace wont allow such evil beauties to stay!” The Nanny in charge threatened with cold eyes knowingly.
If they didnt explain it clearly, all of them would be sent home!
With that, the faces of Miss Di and Miss Yu turned pale, and they looked panicked, and even Shao Yanru looked terrible.
No one wanted to be expelled from the palace over such a thing at this time.
“Nanny…I…I also saw what Miss Wangs maid did last night!” Miss Yu couldnt hold on.
She looked at the Nanny in charge in a panic.
