[Ding, affection has increased by ten. Mission completion rate is now 40%.]
This was her promise to him, an eternal promise.
But she never thought that what she exchanged for this promise wasn’t equal treatment.
She woke up only in the afternoon the next day and dressed alone, she didn’t see a trace of Xiao Tian.
Normally when she woke up, Xiao Tian would come over with a tub of water for her.
She didn’t care at first since she normally didn’t come back for several hours when she went to the imperial kitchen.
But when she didn’t come back after the moon came up, Luo Qing Chen felt that something was wrong.
There was nothing unusual in the yard. She opened the door to ask the guard, “Did you see Xiao Tian today?”
“Xiao Tian was called away by an old housekeeping maid this morning.” The guard thought for a bit before saying, “It seems like it’s been several hours.”
“Housekeeping…..” Luo Qing Chen knitted her brows to ask, “Do you remember who it was?”
“I can’t remember that clearly.”
Luo Qing Chen nodded and didn’t ask anything else.
After all, other than keeping her in and keeping her safe, these people definitely didn’t care about where her maid went.
She didn’t know any housekeeping maids, but…...the previous host had a few memories.
One of them had a large mole on the right side of her cheek, but the important thing was…...she used to be a servant of the Yue Family.
Although the level two teleport did make her a bit tired, it wasn’t to the point where she would faint.
The maids of the palace weren’t as harmonious as they seemed, there were many sly maids and servants who were secretly taken care of.
Maids going missing in the palace was already a normal thing.
In a corner with no one around, she took out the Phoenix Dance Sword and headed in the direction of the maid quarters.
But she saw two maids coming out with buckets filled with blood.
She quickly found a corner to hide herself to listen to their conversation.
“Ai, that maid really is pitiful. That kind of punishment was no different from dying from a thousand stabs.
“Shh, be quiet. It was miss Yue’s orders, we can’t discuss this.”
“Quickly! That person won’t last another half an hour.”
Yue Cai Zhi…...
Luo Qing Chen gritted her teeth and knocked out of the girls while putting the Phoenix Dance Sword in her right hand at the neck of the other girl as she said in a cold voice, “Where is the maid Xiao Tian you caught?”
“Xiao…...Xiao……” That person said in a trembling voice, “She’s…...being kept in a hidden room.”
“Bring me to her.” The Phoenix Dance Sword created a line of blood on the maid’s neck.
She immediately said with a nod, “Don’t kill me, don’t kill me…...I’ll take you there……”
It was very dark in the hidden room, she couldn’t see a thing.
Luo Qing Chen could hear the sound of blood dripping and there was a strong scent of blood in the air.
She raised her right hand and the end of the Phoenix Dance Sword knocked out the maid.
When she took two steps forward, she saw a bit of light. There were two old maids who were torturing the young girl tied to the board with various tools.
She didn’t have any blood in her face, all her blood had almost dripped out.
“Miss Yue wants you to poison the imprisoned princess, but you won’t, so you deserve to die!”
“Ai, dying only after fifteen out of thirty sets of torture tools, it really isn’t interesting at all.”
