My Crown Prince Consort Is a Firecracker! - Chapter 68 - A Violent Treatment
Anyone who stepped into their own home and was welcomed by a cup of boiling tea thrown at them from out of nowhere would not be able to suppress their rage.
Qiao Mu was no exception to that. Although her stoic little face remained expressionless, the fury in her eyes could not be restrained anymore, and a blast of icy air shot out of her.
When she looked up, she saw Elderly Lady Qiao sitting in the chair in the middle of the courtyard while her youngest aunt, Qiao Wenjuan, and her youngest aunt-in-law, Xu Jiao, stood on each side of her like guards, sharply watching the newcomer, Qiao Mu. Both of their eyes revealed their contempt and ridicule.
Seeing her own house occupied by Elderly Lady Qiao and her cohorts, Qiao Mu seethed with anger. Words could not describe the restless emotions that boiled within her eyes.
She expressionlessly glanced at Elderly Lady Qiao before heading to her room without sparing them another glance, unwilling to acknowledge them. Whoever wanted to talk to them could do it for her! In any case, she did not wish to waste even a word on this hag.
Her condescending attitude caused Elderly Lady Qiao to shoot up from her seat with anger. She pointed at Qiao Mu as she furiously shouted, “Stop! Kneel down!”
Elderly Lady Qiao’s fingertips were trembling from how angry she was. In all the years that she had been in charge of the Qiao Clan, her sons and daughters-in-law have all been extremely respectful toward her and obeyed her every order. When had she ever seen such an insolent rascal who dared to ignore her ‘royal edict’ and challenge her control over the family? How preposterous!
After having her mind strained for so long, Qiao Mu uneasily returned home and was finally able to rest. Who would have known that the old woman would be waiting for her here? It truly irritated her!
Two old stocky women stepped forward with their hands on their hips as they stood side by side, blocking Qiao Mu’s room doors and forcing her to stay inside the small courtyard.
Icicles nearly formed from how cold Qiao Mu’s eyes were. She stared at the two old stocky women who obstructed her way like she was looking at a corpse. “Move. Otherwise, don’t blame me for being impolite.”
“You dare!!! Are you trying to revolt!” Elderly Lady Qiao, née 1 Wang, was hovering between life and death from how enraged she was, the veins on her forehead pulsing.
“Whoever prevents me from resting, then I will make them pay for it!” Hearing a cutesy childish voice saying such murderous words was truly stupefying.
“Let’s see if you dare to hit… You!”
Bang bang. In a flash, Qiao Mu sent two kicks toward each of the old stocky women’s legs. The sound of bones cracking accompanied sharp miserable screams from the two of them. It hurt so much that they were bending over.
Xu Jiao was flabbergasted for a moment before releasing a sharp screech. “You d*mn girl, you actually dared to attack your grandmother’s servants!”
“Are you deaf? I already warned you all to back off. Are my words truly that incomprehensible?” Qiao Mu sneered and packed another punch toward one of the women’s stomachs, sending her scuttling back on the ground several meters away, collapsing underneath Elderly Lady Qiao’s feet with an anguished howl!
The other woman’s face immediately drained of color, and she continuously retreated back. She needed no further action from Qiao Mu before automatically scrambling back, throwing herself at Elderly Lady Qiao’s feet and continuously bawling, “Old Matriarch, save me! Old Matriarch, save me!”
How dull! Qiao Mu’s eyes emitted a cold glint as she expressionlessly swept her eyes over Elderly Lady Qiao.
Elderly Lady Qiao was startled by her icy gaze and staggered back a few steps, nearly falling over.
The people scrambled to support the old woman. Elderly Lady Qiao’s chest was heaving from how angry she was, and her lips trembled as she cursed, “You, you little vermin, you dare to actually attack your elder! Quickly! Seize that little vermin for me! Beat her, mercilessly beat her! Beat her until she’s dead!”
