The Reborn Young Master’s Pampered Cousin (52)
Bai shi’s complexion changed drastically, and she said fiercely, “Sure enough, he is a wolf pup who doesn’t know good from bad. Someone come, tie him up and drag him back! And immediately send the young miss home.”
With that, several male servants immediately rushed in and tied up Qi Chimu.
Bai Weiwei was also ushered to the carriage by a cluster of maidservants.
At this time, she couldn’t immediately change her words and say it was a joke just now.
Bai Weiwei turned her head and saw that Qi Chimu’s gaze was fixed on her, fire burning in his eyes.
He suddenly let out an incomparably mocking laugh, then lowered his gaze and said nothing. His entire being grew colder and more violent.
Bai Weiwei was brought home. After speaking those words that dropped the favorability–
–she waited for the sound of the plummeting favorability.
But by the time they arrived at the Bai family, there was still no notification.
She had no idea if Qi Chimu had been beaten to death.
She pressed a hand to her forehead and watched the maid rushing back and forth with warm water and pouring it into a large tub.
Bai Weiwei rubbed her temples and finally couldn’t resist asking the system: “When will it finish, the side task?”
System: “Still a bit longer. The original used too many tricks to bully the male lead in the last life. The side task picked the main bullying events, but it can’t take too much bullying.”
Bai Weiwei: “Can I find out what the next mini task is?”
She had to repeat the bullying pattern of the last life, but those bullying methods were broken.
She couldn’t refer to any of the information before rebirth.
System: “… it’s random and can’t be checked beforehand.”
Bai Weiwei also fell silent before letting out a sigh. “What use do you have other than chatting with me or roasting me ah.”
System, with a face of virtuousness: “I can also buy you discounted goods.”
Bai Weiwei held her head in despair. Their friendship was over, break off ties with this trash system.
She felt that this kind of side task was a hell mode. There was no end, and just as she got a bit of favorability she was forced to pierce the capture target with a knife.
Even if she used up all her brainpower, she couldn’t capture him.
She finally knew why the main mission was so long and didn’t toss the host around so much.
Bai Weiwei had been undressing to take a bath, but as soon as she lifted her skirt and saw the cloth tied around her knee, she thought for a while and let the skirt fall back down.
She said, “This era is very old-fashioned ba?”
The system munched on a chunk of dried instant noodles1 and immediately replied, “Extremely old-fashioned. If a woman’s feet were seen by a man, they would no longer be chaste and would hang themselves. There’s also drowning in a bamboo basket for adultery2 and being burned at the stake for sleeping around before marriage.”
Bai Weiwei’s complexion darkened. Wasn’t this too old-fashioned ba.
The maid had already finished drawing up the water and wanted to wait on her while she bathed.
Bai Weiwei immediately put on a pale and haggard look, looking at the maid with empty eyes.
Then she said weakly, “I will bathe later.”
She looked completely battered.
The maid hesitated before withdrawing.
Then Bai Weiwei expressionlessly stared at the door. Finally, she saw the maidservant by Bai shi’s side come running in.
She hurriedly reached up to mess up her hair, then deliberately tore the hem of her skirt, making it look more tattered. Finally, she rubbed her eyes to make her look more sad and miserable.
Good, she had the image.
The maidservant had indeed come to ask her to go to the house in the rear courtyard.
It was used all year round to punish servants who had made a mistake.
As well as punishing sons and daughters who had done something terribly wrong.
When Bai Weiwei was invited into the room, she saw Qi Chimu bound to a pillar inside. His head hung low, and his body was covered in bruises.
Bai shi was sitting in a chair, trembling with anger.
