As An Immortal, I Only Learn Forbidden Skills - Chapter 750
750 The Deal
Xiao Yu’er did not believe it at all. Her eyes were filled with vigilance. “No matter what, I won’t let you take the jade bracelet.”
Jiang Ming saw through Xiao Yu’er’s thoughts and continued to comfort her. “I will definitely not take this bracelet. If you don’t mind, I just want to look at it.”
Although he was telling the truth, there were many loopholes in his words. If one listened carefully, they would understand what he truly meant.
Xiao Yu’er did not notice the loopholes in Jiang Ming’s words and immediately began to consider his request.
After thinking about it, Xiao Yu’er made a decision.
Her thoughts were rather simple. Her simplicity made her seem rather innocent.
Xiao Yu’er pulled up her clothes and sat on a stool at the side. She looked at Jiang Ming and said seriously, “I hope you can answer a few questions. If you can’t, then you can forget about seeing the jade bracelet. Also, I have some conditions!”
Jiang Ming agreed immediately. “What do you want to know?”
He wanted to see the jade bracelet.
Hearing this, Xiao Yu’er felt a little strange. “Is this bracelet very important to you? Do you have some kind of relationship with the owner of this bracelet?”
She was extremely curious.
Seeing the curiosity in Xiao Yu’er’s eyes, Jiang Ming did not know whether to laugh or cry. He coughed and said, “We’ve met two or three times. Nothing special happened, so don’t overthink.”
Xiao Yu’er was instantly disappointed, but she did not say much. She just sighed and said, “What a pity.”
“Alright, quickly tell me your conditions. What are your conditions?”
Jiang Ming went to the main topic.
Xiao Yu’er looked at Jiang Ming, and her eyes suddenly turned cold. “Ning Caichen, I want you to help me kill someone!”
His tone was very determined and sharp. There was also a tinge of deep sadness in it.
Jiang Ming could see Xiao Yu’er’s emotions and asked curiously, “Ms. Xiao, can you tell me what happened?”
Xiao Yu’er was stunned for a moment before slowly revealing her past.
“I was originally the free and unfettered Ms. Jiang of the Fengyu Kingdom. I wandered around and set up a shop wherever I went. However, I was framed and manipulated by that person. In the end, not only did I lose my shop, but I was also forced to become a prostitute. I became a hostess in the Ruyi Pavilion, and I was the best here.”
In the end, Xiao Yu’er spoke bitterly, her eyes filled with confusion.
Jiang Ming could roughly understand Xiao Yu’er’s feelings, so he also talked about his own experiences in order to win her trust. “Although it was not as bad as what happened to you, I was almost chased away from where I was.”
Xiao Yu’er’s jaw dropped, and she sized up Jiang Ming. “With your outstanding ability, how could you be chased away?”
“What do you mean? Do you think that I’m powerful?”
Jiang Ming held his chin and asked. There was another layer to his questions.
Xiao Yu’er frowned and replied seriously, “Lord Ning Caichen, I think you have a good temperament and know a lot of things. I’m sure you’re quite powerful.”
Jiang Ming’s mind wandered, and he vaguely remembered the scene of Prince Qiqihar arguing with him. He shook his head for a moment. “People are selfish. You’re still too inexperienced.”
Xiao Yu’er was stunned for a moment, as if she suddenly remembered something bad. Then, she smiled bitterly. “That’s true. I’ve experienced this kind of thing before. It’s just that I’ve been living very comfortably recently and have forgotten about these things. That’s why I’m so naive now.”
“So, Ms. Xiao, do you plan to stay here for a long time?”
Jiang Ming casually chatted with Xiao Yu’er.
In his opinion, Xiao Yu’er’s experience was quite tragic.
No matter what, Xiao Yu’er’s personality was good. She did not vent her frustrations on others because of her bad experience.
Xiao Yu’er became confused. “I don’t know either. Maybe I will stay here, maybe I won’t. The main thing is that I don’t know where to go when I leave this place.”
Jiang Ming was stunned for a moment and said in a strange voice, “Since you’re the young lady of the Jiang family, you should have learned a lot of things. Won’t you be able to support yourself with your skills? How can you not know anything?”
Xiao Yu’er was at a loss. “Who am I? I’m just a woman from a brothel.”
“Did someone abduct you and bring you here? Anyway, based on how popular you are now, you can redeem yourself and live a new life.”
Jiang Ming spoke to Xiao Yu’er, trying to let her see the value of her life.
Upon hearing Jiang Ming’s words, Xiao Yu’er looked at him in surprise and said, “How did you know that I was threatened and abducted?”
Jiang Ming did not expect that he would be right. He felt even more sympathy for Xiao Yu’er.
“The person who threatened me is Madam Zhenguo’s good friend, the wife of the king of the Fengyu Kingdom, Liu’er Yuanyuan.”
Xiao Yu’er did not think there was anything to hide from Jiang Ming.
Jiang Ming tried his best not to laugh.
He felt that this name was really funny. How could someone come up with such a name?
However, that name was given by their parents, so it was not easy to change it.
“How did Liu’er Yuanyuan threaten you?”
Jiang Ming immediately asked.
Unexpectedly, Xiao Yu’er started crying when she spoke. “Liu’er Yuanyuan took away my indwelling contract and forced me to stay in the Ruyi Pavilion. If I’m not in the Ruyi Pavilion, she will sell me elsewhere.”
Upon hearing this, Jiang Ming asked, “Ms. Xiao, so your condition is for me to get the indwelling contract?”
“Yes, there’s also… something else I want to ask…”
Xiao Yu’er pursed her lips and instantly became serious.
Seeing Xiao Yu’er like this, Jiang Ming probably realized the gravity of the situation and said, “Just say it, Ms. Xiao. I can handle it.”
“I accidentally locked that bracelet. I had to use Madam Zhenguo’s gold bracelet to open it. However, Madam Zhenguo’s gold bracelet is very expensive.”
Xiao Yu’er told Jiang Ming about the origin and story of the gold bracelet and showed him a portrait of Liu’er Yuanyuan.
“Leave it to me.”
Jiang Ming agreed directly and went out, but he accidentally bumped into Liu’er Yuanyuan.
He followed her and waited until Liu’er Yuanyuan entered a room. He created a small hole in the door and looked inside.
Liang Sisi came over and called out softly.
“Shh, someone is saying something.”
Jiang Ming looked at Liang Sisi, signaling for her to be quiet.
Liang Sisi immediately covered her mouth and nodded.
Seeing that Liang Sisi had quieted down, Jiang Ming continued to look through the hole in the door.
