40% When the Empress Counterattack / Chapter 8: A Man (2)

Chapter 8: A Man (2)

The man's cold gaze swept in my direction for a second before continuing speaking with father.

It's just a glance but it affect my whole being so much.

My heart shivered.

My whole body was shaken.

All I heard is my chest, beating hard like a horse that was freaked out by something.

'Why is this evil b*stard here?!'

'Why is this heinous murderer here?!

This feeling... I only felt this feeling, this overflowing loathing and hatred when my family was beheaded in front of me.

My loving father.

My gentle and kind mother.

My doting brave big brothers.

They died...

And it was all because of this unfeeling man!

That face... That devilish face that I want to die horribly.

But in the end, I died in the past before him.

I died but he is still living there.

He has a thick yet perfectly formed eyebrows. Set of electric blue eyes that can captures ones soul, beautiful but a danger and coldness was hidden behind its beauty . A well shaped nose paired with a pink lips, his beauty can make the people forget their names was, just by looking at him.

A formidable and mountain like aura surrounding him, pressuring everyone who's near him.

This traits of him... I didn't forgot them, even in my dying breath, I looked at his smiling and victorious smirk before I breathed my last breath.

He is also the one who hired those assassins to kill me, together with the other officials who hate the vixen Imperial Noble Consort,Bai Xiu Lan . I am certain of it.

I calmed my tense nerves and looked again in their direction. I am afraid I will blow up here, so it's better to go out.

" I will be going father. I... I am not feeling well."

I managed to said these words calmly, even in my state, I can mask my fluctuating emotions perfectly. An ability I acquired living in the Palace for how many years.

I didn't wait my father's reply before going out from the office.

I have a lot of questions in my mind right now. It's best to unwind and find a place where I can think without worries.

It takes me an almost an hour before reaching a park.

Children are running playfully. Their laughter is so loud that everyone basically heard them but no one stopped them. Children's laughter is sweet and lively, making the people also smile.

There is also a lot of couples, talking happily with each other.

Seeing this scene, I remember my childhood with my family.

We laughed together.

Cry and play together.

Without any care for the world.

So carefree.

Like a family of birds.

Who also fly together to reach their destination.

I thought it will continue that way... How I wish.

After entering the palace, I suffered with how many years.

And finally gained power in the harem... And even in the court.

I gained power so does my family, Bai.

After I became the Imperial Noble Consort, my father was also promoted from fifth rank official to a first rank official.

My mother was titled a first rank lady.

My two brothers also bestowed upon by the Emperor the title of a second rank generals.

My family became a large clan that no one could be trifled with.

And because of it, it elicited the envy and jealousy of other big family and high rank officials.

Thus, every morning court they would accuse my father and brothers of anything that would ruin them, to ruin the Bai's.

They even plotted many schemes but my family managed it with my help and some of those family who supported and on friendly terms with the Bai's.

But who would have thought that one of father's best friend betrayed him.

My father fell with one of their scheme.

And it ruined it all...

It ruined my world...

Sorry for not updating! I am so addicted in this certain game that I can't think of anything but to upgrade to not decrease my rank ( in the game.)

First. I will write our MC's past, for us to understand her better.

So next chapter or two will be Bai Xiu Lan's past.

And thank you for reading! - FairyofFrost

    Have you quitted the game yet? That's what I do too with games to be in the rank or something but some event on another I won't be able to play then I will just quit altogether because its not worth the effort if I'm not at least in the top rank anymore.
