39 An Evil Sneer
Su Xi might be easy to fool, but Mrs. Su was probably not that simpleminded. That was why Su Luo had to gain the upper hand by acting first and kill Nanny Gui to end the trouble once and for all.
In light of Nanny Gui's offensive conduct and criminal abuse of the original Su Luo, she deserved to die a long time ago.
Plus, taking out Nanny Gui was as good as taking out Mrs. Su's right hand. It would make things much easier for Su Luo in the future.
It was an excellent chance to kill two birds with one stone. So, Su Luo killed Nanny Gui without hesitation.
Still, she allowed the young maidservant to live, only knocking her out.
She still had a good use for the young girl and would count on her testimony when the time came.
Su Luo moved even faster after dealing with Nanny Gui and the young girl. She shot off like a flash of lightning.
She rushed non-stop to the Cosmos courtyard where Su Jingyu lived. Her small figure was as agile as a cat.
Before long, she arrived at the Cosmos courtyard.
Instead of going out for the night, Su Jingyu had stayed in his room and was practicing.
"There is an assassin!" Su Luo altered her voice and loudly cried out.
She had created a disturbance outside on purpose so that people inside would see a dark figure leaping into the courtyard.
"Assassin! Catch the assassin!"
More and more people started to shout hastily.
Su Jingyu frowned disapprovingly. The commotion had interrupted his practice.
But the noise outside seemed to grow louder and louder.
He had no choice but to stand up and go out to have a look.
However, just as he was walking out the door, Su Luo stealthily snuck into the room.
Looking at the empty inner room, she cracked an evil smile. She was waiting eagerly for the drama that was about to unfold.
Su Jingyu, you decided to go out and left me a chance to get in. Don't blame this on me later.
Su Luo quickly pulled out the small casket in her pocket and took the Heavenly Spirit Water from inside. Just as she was going to shut the casket --
In the bright candlelight, she saw a piece of paper, old and faded, underneath the jade bottle. She picked it up and took a closer look, realizing it was something resembling a map. She couldn't tell for sure since the lines were twisted and crooked.
In addition, the map was not complete. It was probably only one-fourth of the whole map.
What map was this? The edge of the paper had turned yellow. It seemed to have been there for quite some years. Frowning, Su Luo was a little puzzled.
Still, it was probably something valuable considering it was placed together with the Heavenly Spirit Water. Su Luo couldn't leave the paper to Su Jingyu no matter what.
It would be foolish of Su Luo not to take it. She decisively tucked the map into her pocket.
Then she took off her ninja suit, the face mask, and the headscarf, stuffing everything, including the casket, underneath the bed.
She moved swiftly and finished everything in no time.
The black ninja suit was crammed under the bed, but a small corner of it was left out intentionally for people to see. Su Luo looked at it and sneered.
Su Jingyu, was it fun to frame someone else? I hope you enjoy it and don't get yourself killed this time. Your sister still has more games waiting for you.
Su Luo glanced through the room one last time and made sure she didn't leave anything incriminating behind. She jumped out of the window. Her small figure disappeared immediately in the darkness of the night.
On the other side of the mansion, after Nangong Liuyun saw Su Luo's signal telling him she had left, he promptly changed his direction and followed her. He led the crowd behind him to the Cosmos courtyard where Su Jingyu lived.
Since they were framing the theft on Su Jingyu, they needed to put on a play.
