Chapter 66 – The Duke’s Heir vs Abandoned Woman’s Counterattack (6)
Gu Shengyin went through her memories again and finally remembered who this magician in red clothing was.
Joanna Raymond, daughter of the Imperial Finance Minister.
The entire Carter Empire knew that the Duke of White Rose and the Finance Minister were not in harmony. When discussing national affairs, the two parties would always disagree with each other and no one could do anything about it.
Because of this situation, the younger generations of the two families also disliked each other.
Another reason why Joanna did not like Veronica was because everyone always compared them.
If it was just a simple comparison, she wouldn’t care. However, the problem was that, even if she did not want to admit it, Veronica Lawman really was better than her, Joanna Raymond.
The two of them were of the same age. Joanna was already a junior ranked magician this year. According to the ranks of magicians, from the beginning: apprentice magician, senior magician, master magician, magician guide, magister, great magister, and sage.
As a 13 year old being able to practice to master magician rank, Joanna was undoubtedly a genius.
However, Veronica was also 13 years old, yet already a great swords master. In the same hierarchy, the swordsmen were divided into the following: swordsmen, senior swordsmen, sword masters, great swordsmen, great sword master, legendary sword master, and sword saint.
According to the ranks, great sword master was equivalent to magister, which were two ranks higher than Joanna.
Over time, Joanna would subconsciously avoid Veronica.
Everyone knew that on occasions where Lady Veronica of the Lawman family appeared, Raymond family’s Joanna would be no where to be found.
Lilith was a good friend of Veronica. In this type of situation, she naturally had to speak up.
At this time, the boss came out holding a bag of fresh plant fiber in his arms.
“I’m really sorry, Lady. The plant fibers has been sold in advanced by her Highness.” The boss felt very embarrassed towards Joanna.
Joanna looked at Gu Shengyin and said: “How much did you buy it for? I’ll pay double for the plant fiber.”
Gu Shengyin’s answer to her was to pay the boss crystal coins, take the plant fibers from the owner’s hands, and put it into her space ring.
“You!” Joanna became angry. What she couldn’t stand the most were the lofty appearance of the Lawman family. It was as if she was a jumping clown in their eyes.
Gu Shengyin thought in her heart: This back pot is not mine to carry. With a facial paralysis character design, there is no way for me to give you a smile ah.

“Veronica Lawman, stop!” Joanna threw a fireball towards Gu Shengyin, which almost landed on her clothes. If she did not avoid a bit, it was estimated that, at this moment, the entire gown could not be worn.
Gu Shengyin gave Joanna a look. There was a trace of anger in her eyes.
Joanna felt a bit guilty. She had only wanted to stop Veronica. She did not think that her emotions were out of control causing her to lose her aim.
However, in front of the Lawman family, she absolutely could expose any weakness. She raised her chin: “This lady wants you to stop. I want the plant fibers in your hand.”
At this time, Vera stretched out from Gu Shengyin’s bosom and cried out softly.
Joanna’s expression changed: “What is in your arms, a Siamese cat?”
Gu Shengyin did not speak.
Joanna appeared somewhat pale: “I asked him so many times, yet he refused to give one to me. Originally, it was sent to you!”
After a moment, Gu Shengyin came to understand what Joanna wanted to do with the plant fiber.
She suddenly felt that Joanna, this girl, was a little pitiful. It was no more than a story of falling flowers yearning for love, but the heartless brook rippling on.
But sympathy was sympathy! She could not get Vera’s rations out!
