Chapter 683: Labeled Insensible
Ning Shu went to see Zhi off on the day that the group was going to the trade fair. Zhi had lots of big and small bags filled with things in hopes of trading for goods at the fair.
When they got to the place of offering, Ning Shu met Qian Jia’s gaze head on, then rolled her eyes and ignored her.
She turned towards Zhi who looked both excited and nervous to say, “If anything happens, go to the male beastmen who are leading the group. They’re older and have more experience dealing with problems.” And their eyes weren’t filled with just Qian Jia.
Rely on the young male beastmen? What a joke.
Zhi nodded, then she asked, “Cao, do you want anything? I’ll bring it back for you.”
“I’m fine.” Ning Shu then pressed a bag of poison into Zhi’s hand and said, “If you encounter danger, scatter this, but make sure not to inhale it.”
Zhi tucked away that unknown powder carefully as she nodded.
When Qian Jia saw that Ning Shu completely ignored her after just rolling her eyes, she headed over towards Ning Shu and Zhi.
“Cao.” Qian Jia called out to Ning Shu.
Ning Shu glanced over and said offhandedly, “What do you want? You want to fight again? You clearly know that I don’t like you, but you still insist on showing your face. You did this on purpose, didn’t you? You’re making all the male beastmen turn against me on purpose.”
“Oh great divine maiden, I was wrong, alright? I won’t argue with you again.” Ning Shu rolled her eyes. “Stop making the male beastmen attack me please. I get it already, all the male beastmen here like you. Every time you lose a strand of hair, they want to just throttle the life out of me.”
“Cao.” Zhi pulled at Ning Shu.
Qian Jia’s face flushed red and she said angrily, “You sure like to stir up trouble! I just wanted to talk to you about the spots. You’re young and you have a bad temper, so since this is the first time that female beastmen in the tribe are participating in the trade fair, we thought it’d be better to have Zhi go instead.”
“Enough, you don’t need to say any more. You’ve already taken away my spot, but you also want to label me as someone who’s insensible and has a bad temper? Divine maiden, you’re the noble divine maiden, the envoy that the Divinity sent, how could you do something like this?”
Ning Shu’s tone was filled with mocking. After trolling someone, she still wanted that person to think that she was a good person? Did she think that the whole world was stupid? And she was also trying to ruin her relationship with Zhi.
Qian Jia didn’t know how to communicate with this female beastmen at all. She was so despicable!
“Cao, don’t cause trouble again,” said Kai when he saw that Qian Jia and Rui looked displeased.
Ning Shu spat at Kai. “When did I ever cause trouble? I didn’t even want to pay attention to her, she was the one that ran over to talk to me. After she took away my spot, could it be that I should kneel down to thank her?”
“Don’t talk to me, I don’t want to see you. My pa must’ve been blinded to have saved someone like you.” Ning Shu’s face was filled with contempt.
Kai’s expression darkened. He had never noticed that his future mate was actually this kind of person. He rubbed his temples. Being talked to this way in front of Qian Jia, especially since it was his future mate doing it, caused him to feel like a beast was gnawing at his heart. He felt embarrassed, resentful, and even a little scared that Qian Jia would look down on him.
Cao and Jia’s current relationship was really bad. If he really became mates with Cao, then he probably wouldn’t be able to interact with Rui’s family anymore.
Cao was seriously an insensible female. She put people on the spot every time she got angry.
“Cao, can’t you talk properly? Can’t you see that Jia’s trying to explain things to you?” said Kai with a sigh.
Ning Shu: …
