Xu Xiaoshou looked quite stunned. In a dazed manner, he asked, “Why are you telling me all this?”
“Why? Hehehe… why?”
Lan Xinzi’s shoulder could not stop shaking, and she appeared unable to contain her crazy laugh.
Such a childish question?
Were there so many “whys” around this world?
Why did you not ask why I was born a servant, eh?
Why did I not dare to kill the kid from the Zhao family who dared to laugh at me, even though I became one of the Inner Yard Thirty-three, eh?
Why did I get to where I am now, something I could only dream of in the past, but still failed to get what I wish for?
The Spirit Palace—it was just like how Zhao Qingteng put it, had now become a prison for her.
Lan Xinzi suddenly walked up to Xu Xiaoshou and lifted his chin. In a chilling tone, she said, “You tell me why I am telling you all of this, then.”
Her emotional state instantly took a turn for the worse, and she howled in a shrilled voice. “Someone who’s been caged can only remain silent and has no right to ask why!”

“You are sick.”
To everyone around them, the remarkably calm voice sounded like it came from a grim reaper.
Lan Xinzi looked down at her body and could not believe what just happened.
The bloody hole in her chest was the size of two fists. It was a solid testament of why she was not the only one who wanted to kill Xu Xiaoshou when she first saw him.
