Rebirth: Pampered Wife’s Counterattack - Chapter 744 - New Trick
Chapter 744: New Trick
Bai Jingrou was extremely angry. At the same time, however, she also felt some fear.
She had investigated secretly and learned that Ji Qing, who was previously locked up in the storeroom, had disappeared. It was as though she had vanished from the face of this earth. It was likely she was already dead.
It seemed like taking a gradual approach against Fang Xinxin was no longer a good idea.
She needed to eliminate her with one blow and settle this once and for all.
Recently, Fang Xinxin felt especially happy everyday.
This was because she had already gone blind in her previous life around this time. In this life, however, her vision remained as sharp as ever.
However, she did not let her guard down.
For her, an extremely life-threatening event would occur at around 5:00 p.m. in the evening today.
Based on her recollections, a servant from the old mansion would soon come to inform her that Bai Qinghao was inviting her to a restaurant outside for a meal.
At that time, she had followed the servant out and in the end, a car sent her flying on the streets. Thankfully, she did not pass away from the event. However, her body was paralysed for the rest of her life.
In her blind and paralysed state, Bai Jingrou and her family had criticised her for running about the streets despite being blind.
As she had already offended all the Bai family’s elders by then, aside from Bai Qinghao, no one from the Bai family supported her.
She even tried to commit suicide twice, but was stopped by Bai Qinghao on both occasions.
Back then, the fake Fang Lilan’s identity was not exposed. Fang Manxue had also been safe and well.
Bai Qinghao had made use of the Fang family’s safety to threaten her into remaining alive.
In this lifetime, the fake Fang Lilan was already dead. Fang Manxue had also received the punishment she deserved. She had been disfigured and suffered daily beatings in prison.
Fang Xinxin’s eyes were also unharmed.
Naturally, she also would not allow anyone to land her in that paralysed state once more.
As expected, an unfamiliar maid hurried over to her side and politely said, “Madam, Young Master informed me to take you to ‘Imperial Capital’ Restaurant for a meal. The table has already been reserved. Would you like to head over there now?”
Fang Xinxin leaned back against the reclining chair in the yard. Her gaze was cold as she sized the maid up. “What’s your name? What are your duties here? I’ve been in the old mansion for quite some time now but I’ve never met you. Look into my eyes and answer my questions!”
The maid did not expect her to ask this. She faltered for a moment before returning her gaze. “I am Ah Cai. I was newly hired to take care of the gardens.”
“Who was it that hired you?”
“It was… Butler Bai.”
Fang Xinxin brought her phone out and dialled the old Butler Bai Mingde’s number. He responded that he did not hire someone like this.
Ah Cai lowered her head and peeked at Fang Xinxin secretly. She wasn’t sure what the person on the other end of the call told her. She felt uncertain and flustered.
“Who sent you to harm me?” Fang Xinxin asked casually.
A hint of panic flashed past Ah Cai’s expression. “Madam, I’m not sure what you’re talking about.”
“Bai Qinghao is away on a business trip and will only return tomorrow. How could he possibly invite me to dinner?” Fang Xinxin smiled coldly. “Moreover, Butler Bai says that he never hired you.”
Ah Cai knew that she was completely seen through and immediately thought to escape. However, her expression suddenly turned slack and her movements became stiff.
“Go on. Change into a new set of clothes and replace Fang Xinxin to go meet Bai Qinghao.”
A voice repeated endlessly in her mind.
Ah Cai’s gaze was blank as she followed the instructions.
Fang Xinxin’s gaze was frigid cold as she watched her from behind.
In her previous life, after her accident, Bai Qinghao had sent someone to capture Ah Cai. However, she had stubbornly refused to reveal the person behind the accident even if it meant it would cause her own life.
As for that driver who hit her, he had killed himself on the spot ‘out of fear’.
Someone was putting in this much effort to paralyse or even kill her.
