Chapter 165: Xiao Yan’s Murder Attempt
Ning Shu could sense that there was something off about the atmosphere in the house lately. No matter what she was doing, she sensed that someone was watching her.
And the spy even harbored malicious intentions. The hairs on her back rose from the feeling of danger.
Ning Shu dared to use this body’s head as a wager, this was definitely that bastard, Xiao Yan’s doing. Ning Shu tried to find the person who was watching her but wasn’t successful.
Hence, she could only focus on being even more careful. One thing that made her happy was the fact that their plot to make the Xiao family collapse was almost complete.
She still had to face Madame Su’s ridiculing and taunting everyday, but she just treated it as a dog’s dying barks.
When Ning Shu didn’t bother to respond, Madame Xiao hated her even more and started using different methods to torment her. For example, she would order the servants not to wash Ning Shu’s clothes or not to prepare her meals. In short, she made Ning Shu’s position in the house so low it couldn’t even compare to that of a servant.
Madame Xiao would often mock her for being a chicken that couldn’t pop out any eggs. Ning Shu was speechless. There was once an egg, but you guys had already smashed it.
Madame Xiao’s actions were purposefully rubbing salt on Ning Shu’s wound. Every time this body heard words like this, it would react with hatred and hurt.
It was a good thing it was Ning Shu facing Madame Xiao right now. If it had been the original host standing there, she would’ve already been driven crazy by Madame Xiao.
It seemed like the current Madame Xiao hated her even more than she had in the original storyline. It was probably because she done far worse things than the original host.
Meanwhile, Master Xiao acted like he didn’t see anything, which was clearly tacit approval.
Ning Shu didn’t mind their attitude at all. The only thing she cared about was the person in this house that was watching her with such a malicious gaze.
It had already been half a month since Xiao Yan left. This made the people in the Xiao family look at Ning Shu with even more disdain.
Ning Shu: …
This particular night, Ning Shu was sleeping when her heart rate suddenly sped up irregularly and her body abruptly became covered with sweat.
When she opened her eyes, she found that there was something glinting with cold light above her.
Her body reacted faster than her brain and instinctively rolled to the side. Following that, she heard the sound of a knife stab onto the bed.
Fuck! Someone was trying to kill her with a knife! Ning Shu was stunned for a moment by this simple and crude method. She had thought of countless possibilities, but had never considered that this person would use such a straightforward method.
The person turned to run so Ning Shu reflexively kicked that person. Following that, there was a thud as the person hit the ground.
Ning Shu quickly opened the lights and turned to look at the person on the ground. It was a woman and she was still holding a large knife in her hand. It was a knife big enough to chop through bone. Had this knife successfully cut her, her head would already have been separated from her body.
The sudden bright light pierced the woman’s eyes so she lifted her arms to block it. Before she could react, Ning Shu had already snatched away her knife.
Following that, Ning Shu violently kicked her a couple times. The middle-aged woman’s wails of pain immediately broke the silence of the night.
Ning Shu grabbed the woman by her collar and dragged her into the living room.
