Chapter 290: Meeting Again

Pei Rumo didn’t expect a grown lady like Zi Su to clearly guess his thoughts. He was placed in a tough spot as a wave of discomfort swept through his body.

Pei Rumo coughed twice before replying, “It isn’t really the case. I just feel that Luo Chu is more easy-going when dealing with Pei Qingfeng.”

Zi Su frowned and fell silent for a moment. She thought for a long time before speaking up, “I don’t think so. I feel that Young Lady Luo Chu treats everyone with her icy-cold expression. If she treats anyone nicely, medicinal ingredients would be involved. She treats medicinal ingredients like treasure. Sometimes, I will feel goosebumps on my body when I look at her dealing with her medicinal ingredients.”

Pei Rumo was regretful he asked the question. Zi Su was the same as Bai Luochu. They were both blockheads when it came to relationships.

“Alright, you may be dismissed. Tomorrow morning, help me to deliver an invitation card to the general’s residence.” Pei Rumo didn’t wish to carry on talking about it and he quickly changed the topic.

Zi Su knew that he was chasing her out and she dismissed herself.

Just as Pei Rumo was thinking of whether or not he should leave the room, a pigeon flew through the window with a message slip on its legs. He opened it and read the large words, “Young Lady Luo Chu has returned to the general’s residence.”

Pei Rumo sighed. He felt that he was treating her differently because of her talent.

In the general’s residence, Cai Ling was sneezing constantly. Bai Luochu had been vexed over the sudden appearance of the mysterious faction but she lost her ability to think because of little Cai Ling.

But how could she force Cai Ling to stop sneezing? Bai Luochu didn’t blame her and she asked, “What is wrong? Did you catch a cold?”

Cai Ling shook her head and confessed to Bai Luochu, “I didn’t. When this servant was young, I suffered from an illness that hadn’t been completely cured. If I caught a cold, I would have collapsed a long time ago. I wouldn’t be able to stand here. This servant doesn’t know what is going on as well… I feel that my nose and ears are always twitching. Who is talking about me behind my back?”

Bai Luochu felt it was rather funny as she didn’t expect her personal servant to be so superstitious. She didn’t say anything and turned her gaze to stare out of the window.

Since Bai Luochu returned to the general’s residence, Cai Ling felt that there was something off about her. Since Bai Luochu didn’t say anything, Cai Ling didn’t dare to be nosy. Now that Bai Luochu had spoken up, Cai Ling mustered her courage and asked, “Mistress, since you came back, it seemed like there were a ton of things on your mind. This servant didn’t dare to ask but will Mistress be able to tell this servant what happened?”

Bai Luochu turned back abruptly and looked at Cai Ling. When she saw the little lass’ concerned expression, she couldn’t help but rub Cai Ling’s head, “Nothing major. Perhaps, it is just my groundless fears.”

When Cai Ling heard Bai Luochu’s reply, she knew that she wasn’t going to get an answer. A dispirited expression appeared on her face but she still consoled Bai Luochu, “Mistress, if there is a problem, never take it on alone. Don’t forget you still have us and a whole group of helpers from the Palace of Brilliance Resurgence behind you!”

Bai Luochu felt much better after listening to Cai Ling. “I know. There is no need to worry about me. Nothing has happened yet. Even if something comes up, we will definitely be able to handle it together… Right?”

Cai Ling nodded her head forcefully.

Bai Luochu felt that after her reincarnation, the most fortunate thing that could happen to her was to meet all these companions.

From the looks of it, the mysterious faction that entered the capital might not be a threat to herself and the Palace of Brilliance Resurgence. However, Bai Luochu felt as though something big was about to happen. Taking a look at the sky, Bai Luochu saw thick layers of clouds that hid the moon. Cold wind howled as it blew through the land and the plants in the courtyard seemed as though they were about to be ripped off their roots. It seemed as though disaster was about to befall the land.

Bai Luochu wasn’t a superstitious person and she calmed down before going back to cultivate.

Early the next morning, just as Bai Luochu was having her breakfast, someone made a report. “Young Lady Luo Chu, the First Prince’s residence sent someone to deliver an invitation card. The young attendant isn’t the one who came. The newcomer is a young lady and she said that she had to meet you.

Bai Luochu stopped chewing for a moment.  It isn’t strange for Pei Rumo to send someone to deliver an invitation card. Neither is it strange for him to arrange for a lady to deliver the card. If she insists on meeting me...

Once the thoughts formed in her mind, it wasn’t going to stop. Bai Luochu immediately asked the guard to bring the lady inside.

Zi Su followed the guard all the way to Bai Luochu’s courtyard and gently knocked on the door. 

“Please enter.”

 Zi Su then unhurriedly opened the door and bowed to Bai Luochu as she gave her greeting, “This servant greets Young Lady Luo Chu. It has been a long time since we last met. I trust Young Lady Luo Chu has been well?”

Bai Luochu was overjoyed to see Zi Su, “Zi Su, it really is you! It has been such a long time! I thought that I would be able to see you during my meetings with His First Highness. Today is actually the first time we meet again.”

Zi Su responded with embarrassed laughter, “That’s right, Young Lady might not know this but since Young Lady left the residence, Master sent me out. I only came back recently. Furthermore, Master has the intention to nurture little Ming Lu. It just so happens that Ming Lu is recuperating right now because of his sore muscles.”

“After such a long time, you have matured quite a bit. You were a responsible person when serving me. Right now, it seems like you have grown even more.” Bai Luochu noticed that Zi Su had changed and she couldn’t help but praise her.
