Bai lang, was in absolute disbelief. A youthful, tender face stared back at her, the young girl in front of her was just touching the age of puberty at ten. From the bare memories bai chen got from the girl, she's just a door mouse concubine daughter that was never that interesting. A slow, sensual smile unfitted for her face at that age form on bai lang's lips.
Bai lang squeezed the tender flesh of her arms, legs, thighs and barely developed breast. The havens have not forsaken her, this body that she was now in was a far cry; from her bed ridden, sick and older previous self. She was still in disbelief, but bai chen was also happy to be rid of that awful life.
"Third miss, this servant is coming in."
Bai lang moved from the full-length mirror and to the table and chair in the middle of the room. The young servant girl who came, looked to be the age of fifteen to eighteen. Her features were not that well developed to be called a grown woman.
Seeing bai lang awake, the servant was glad. The fever, she thought, was going to kill her young miss, had past, and she was happy to see that the young miss was up and about.
"Master will be happy to hear that the third miss is awake. Should this servant call the third concubine?"
The third concubine was this body's biological mother." No need." Bai Lang replied. She hardly thinks that the third concubine cares if her daughter is alive. She has been in this body for almost a full day and other than this servant, no one else came to visit her. what were the odds that, in her previous life; her mother was dead. She was the only di daughter, but was not loved by her father, and was treated like a concubine born.
And now she was a concubine born, her existence is still like a small fly that these people can squish and do as they please.
"Inform father of my recovery, and send my apologies to him for not greeting him today; it will take a few more days for my body to fully recover."
The young servant bowed. "I will relay your words to master,"
While she was leaving, the young servant looked back at bai lang puzzled. She had served the third miss for a while and doesn't remember her being this eloquent. Something is different about the third miss.
Something wrong?" bai lang's voice gave the young servant quite the scare. She did not realize she had stopped walking and was still staring at bai lang.
"Nothing's wrong, third miss. Forgive this servant." Bai lang waved the servant away, watching as she skidded away. Bai lang had silently gazed at the young servant's facial expression the entire time she was looking at her. She only felt that this servant was really open and apparent about her feelings, this servant was one to keep around.
Bai ling took several days to assimilate herself with her new body's, life, and surroundings. She'd spend this time period asking the young servant girl she had come to know, as Lou Meng, questions about the Bai's Fu, each time earning her a suspicious look.
In that several days of not seeing anyone, bai lang had learned much about the fu she now lives in. she knew that she was zhu country, the chennai empire was made up of three main kingdoms, and there was numerous minority counties.
Ka'an being one of the major kingdoms spans the entire northern continent, holding a majority of the men, but is the least viable for growth, Ka'an has bold ambitions; but was inhibited from declaring war due to horun. With a size almost as large as ka'an, horun was known for their steel and iron, weaponry and production.
Horun is close allies with zhu country that she is now in. Bai lang closes the book in her hand and walks to the door leading to the front room, bai lang and her mother the third concubine share the courtyard, though she had not seen the woman since being reborn.
Bai lang was just about to open the door when she heard the muffled tones of voices. Though low bai long was able to pinpoint who's talking and about what.
The third miss seems to have changed. She has been acting quite unlike her usual self. I think she's possessed." lou meng said.
Another person, probably a maid snapped back at the servants."Enough!" Do you know what you are saying?" Third miss possess, you're the one who is possess. Have you any idea that uttering such nonsense will get you all beating to death?"
"It's true. She's not like the young miss I know." one servant wanted to more s to lou meng they all that the third miss was not like the one they knew.
"I am telling the third concubine." Lou meng declared. A shuffle could be heard after that and bai land imagined that the other maid was trying to prevent lou meng from leaving.
A flash of ruthlessness crossed Bai Lang's eyes as she pushed the door hard causing it to slam open frightening the two in mid scuffle.
"What are you doing?" Bai lang tried to sound angry with her childish voice. The maid release lou meng and the two dropped to the ground kneeling.
"Lou meng, I have been calling you for ages to prepare my bath and you're here playing. Do you want to be punished? Would ten slaps from the rod be enough?"
Feeling bai lang would make due with her threat, lou meng began banging her head in the ground. "Forgive this servant, young miss. It will not happen again."
"It better not." having gotten the green light, lou meng jumped and ran off to prepare bai lang's bath.
Lou meng, who turned around to look at bai lang, was startled to see her looking right back at her. It was then that it cemented in lou meng's head and heart that bai lang was indeed possessed.
Bai lang tried to keep the killing intent out of her heart. She's a young child, something like that might be taken for someone who was really possessed, she was sure of that; this girl was a pushover before dying, so much like her, bai lang, in her previous life. She Bai lang had to do some wicked things in the name of survival, before falling sick, and dying.
Bai lang looked down on the other servant who immediately greeted bai lang once her attention was on her. "This servant greets a third young miss."
"What is your name?"
"Replying to third miss, this servant's name is Qian."
"Qian." Bai lang said. "You should learn from lou meng's mistakes. Gossiping about your master can and will get you in trouble."
Quian was trembling in front of this barely in her teens young miss. Although her childish voice didn't give her threat justice, quian knew it was a warning.
"You know what to do, right?" Qian nods her head and waits for bai lang to leave before crumbling to the ground. She knows what to do alright, Keep her mouth shut, that she'll do.
