Bailing Wan’er seemed surprisingly composed when she lifted her head and locked her gaze on him. No one could imagine how much she hated and despised the Imperial Court. But she was aware that she should not let vengeance overtake her before she had the ability to take revenge. She should lie low so the Imperial Court did not see her as a threat and would not take their guard up against her.
“Don’t worry. I know what I can and can’t do. I have no right to talk about revenge if I can’t even control my emotions.” Bailing Wan’er replied calmly.
It turned out that Han Jingru worried for nothing. He could not detect the slightest hint of resentment in her gaze. Her eyes were cold and her tone was indifferent.
Han Jingru was relieved she was able to look at the situation realistically. It was still not the time for revenge and she had to get her act together before she was ready to do what she was supposed to.
Outside the house, a clamor of voices broke the silence as two groups of people from different directions met at the entrance.
It so happened that people from the Wang and Xie family ran into each other, each bringing elaborate gifts for Han Jingru.
