It’s Dark, The Moment To Do Great Things 2
“One gold bracelet.”
Then write it down and put in the gold bracelet.
“One jade ruyi1… Damn, I don’t know if these things are worth selling. If they are not worth it, won’t I really starve to death on the street? I don’t think so. These things look pretty and should be worth a few zeros.” Qu Tan’er spoke out loud as she made a record.
The moon was dark and the wind was strong. Sure enough, it was time to do great things, but… Her gaze swept around slightly. Dark was one thing, but why did she feel a chill emanating from the soles of her feet?
“It seems that Lord Qu is still good to you. Unexpectedly, none of the dowry given is bad, and all the gold, silver and jewelry are complete.” Suddenly, a voice rang out.
“It’s okay, but it’s too little, otherwise…” Qu Tan’er replied unconsciously, but in the middle of the words, she suddenly stopped and trembled all over, doubting whether she had hallucinations in her ears just now, otherwise…
However, after waiting for a long time, no one was talking behind her or making any sound. Then… she slowly turned around and raised her eyes to see who was standing behind her, but behind her, she didn’t even see a ghost. No one? How could anyone talk?
“Hmm, am I seeing ghosts?” Qu Tan’er felt a little cold in her heart and swore.
“You’re not seeing ghosts. You’re seeing people.”
“Ah, ghost!” Qu Tan’er wasn’t paying attention. When she turned around, she saw a shadow standing in front of her. For a moment, she was so scared that she fell back and sat down.
“Does Benwang look like a ghost?” Mo Liancheng raised his eyebrows gently and watched her panic with indifferences. When he turned his eyes back to the treasure chest just covered in the newly dug pit, a seemingly faint smile came from the corners of his mouth.
“Just like a ghost.” Qu Tan’er didn’t even think about it, so she nodded directly.
Her heart was still beating wildly, but now not only her heart, but even her eyelids. If the twitching of the left eyelid foretells fortune, and twitching of the right eyelid foretells disaster2… Sadly, the twitching was in her right eye.
Sure enough, as soon as this man appeared, nothing good happened to her.
“Oh, that’s how it is.”
“What’s the matter?” Qu Tan’er curled her lips, climbed up from the ground, glanced at him, and then looked at the box in the pit. Fortunately, it had already been covered.
“Must there be a matter for one to come?” Mo Liancheng spoke casually.
“Thank you for your concern. Your princess is fine now. She is in good health, healthy and in a good mood, so you can rest assured.”
“Did Benwang say I came to see you?”
“…” Qu Tan’er was so depressed that she almost rolled her eyes.
She has long said that scary people will scare people to death, and the way he just scared her, sooner or later, she will be scared so much that she won’t even be able to find her three immortal souls and seven mortal forms3.
“These things are my dowry. I didn’t steal anything from your house.”
“Oh, is it so?”
“That’s right. If you don’t believe it, you can ask someone to check if there is anything missing in the snow courtyard. I didn’t take anything in your house.” Qu Tan’er said it seriously and didn’t mean to joke.
“You seem to forget that you are the princess of this king. If the snow courtyard is given to you, it is yours. Take whatever you want.” Mo Liancheng leaned against the tree and spoke lightly, and after taking his eyes back from the box on the ground, he kept staring at her.
