Minister Go held his chest, his son lost nearly 500,000 gold coins for a mere prostitute and that to after making crown prince angry, where does he put his father's face, who killed his own best friend to make King Lee So Jun trust him and this stupid son of his went out and got on war with Crown Prince himself. Gritting his teeth he said "you will be house arrested in ancestor's chamber till I tell you to come out and forget about wasting money, I will break your leg if you even peak out of the room".
Reaching home he ordered " don't give that Choi Du Mi any milk today, let that brat starve for his sister's smartness".
Back in Brothel as Crown Prince got ready, Su Mi soaked in milk and herb water.Lin Hua stood near her in servile attitude " I did everything that you said please stop whatever you are doing".
Few hours back
While Lin Hua still tried to hold her superiority over Su Mi , suddenly time stopped for her and when she came back she was standing on the edge of the terrace of the brothel building. She screamed, but as if no sound will come out.
With panicked eyes she looked at Su Mi who was eating apple while sitting on the few chairs that were placed for some customers. With small voice she asked " what is happening, what are you doing to me".
Su Mi paused from eating and played with the apple " you will not ask any questions and do whatever I tell you to do. Do you get it ". Lin Hua nodded sweat ran out of her forehead " let me come down please, I hate heights".
Su Mi smiled " I know, when you were small your mother used to make her people hang you from this terrace and you would accept anything to escape that".
Lin Hua shivered " no one, knew about this part of the childhood. Men that were used to hang her were killed by her hands and they would never dare to croak a word of this brothel outside. That was how they were trained and how could a girl that never came out of her house could do that".
Su Mi smiled " stop wondering, how am I doing this, let's see I will let you come down if you give blood oath to heavens to be my servant in this brothel".
A/N : People believed that blood oath was most powerful and truthful of all and one can give it just once in his or her life, to your true master and it can't be forced and once broken, painful death was confirmed.
Lin Hua shook her head " I can't I am already bound by someone who actually owns this place and once bound I can't make other promise".
Su Mi nodded " she already knew that, it was just a test to know if she will speak the truth because to control someone's action by words was a heavy load on her and once used , it would tire her out badly that it will be difficult to even hold a spoon let alone stand up".
Lin Hua was brought down, she was still trying to come out of it when she felt pain on her thighs. She looked horrified at the scratches she gave herself on her thighs that it was bleeding badly.
Su Mi laughed " you must be thinking something ill about me, because whenever you do, you will harm yourself and the harm will depend on the severity of ill intention you have for me, looking at your scratch it must be small ill intention. Am I right Lin Hua".
Lin Hua ran out to her room and took a deep breath, she was already on servile contract with this brothel's true owner but now she had another master living in her own house.
Next two hours, she tried to control herself from harming herself but even if she would curse Su Mi, she would scratch herself. One time she almost poisoned herself when reality set in that Su Mi was controlling her somehow. But she could not find the way she was doing this to her.
So, she gave direct orders to her servants
" Su Mi will be given second biggest room and she herself delivered the letter when Su Mi asked her to do it and made the auction more for Su Mi's benefit because Princes can be appeased but not this magic that Su Mi was capable to do".
Su Mi smiled " Lin Hua how can you say that, when your nightmare just got started, go get ready, you need to sleep with Crown Prince next". Lin Hua got startled " what, how will this be possible. He will find out soon enough".
Su Mi patted her shoulder " did you find out when you stood on that terrace".
Lin Hua nodded, when Su Mi laughed like a tinkling bells " don't worry, as a woman I won't do this with you, I will just use you to bring him superficial pleasure and next thing he will be sleeping till morning".
Lin Hua nodded but her mind shadowed with how powerful and wicked this woman was.
