Cold winds suddenly rose in the inky darkness of the night, making the decay on the dilapidated residence door more noticeably appalling as it rattled in the wind.

A few elder maids passed through the courtyard hurriedly. A servant with a wider figure than the rest, who wore a green robe with her sleeves rolled up halfway, headed towards the innermost room with a food basket in hand.

A strange odour permeated throughout the residence. A slightly younger maid, trailed behind her and whispered, "The smell is really unpleasant. I don't know why Master arranged for that thing to be there. It is quite scary." When she got to this point, she could not resist crying out in shock and edged herself closer to whisper into the head elder maid's ear to continue, "It couldn't be for-"

"Wang [1], speak less." The green-clad elder maid was slightly annoyed. "If anyone around us overhears, you won't be spared."

[1] Wang(王贵家) - When you're a servant, you're referred to as belonging to someone's family or clan since you're considered their property. Hence, this is more of Wang's family maid, or Wang's family servant.

Wang silenced herself hastily.

Arriving at the entrance, a young, round-faced maid emerged from within and accepted the food basket, before entering the house again. After a moment, she carried an empty food basket out. The green-clad elder maid took it and spoke to the round-faced maid, "Master ordered us to bring the person into the room."

"Is this for-" The round faced maid was alarmed.

"We do not need to know." Sighing, the green-clad elder maid summoned Wang. "Come here and bring the person over there."

A lamp lit the house, brightening the hall slightly. Wang pinched her nose, only noticing the thing that sat in the wooden basin after several moments had passed. Seeing it for the first time, she almost threw up. Over the course of the past few days, even if she had delivered food daily with the green-clad elder maid, she had never seen the person inside clearly.

The thing in the wooden basin could no longer be referred to as "human". All four of her limbs had been severed, her rod-like body propped up, as it swayed in the wooden basin. Her hair was bunched together, with small bits of debris scattered throughout. It vaguely looked female.

The green-clad elder maid stared, sympathy flashing through her eyes. Although she did not have an inkling of this lady's identity, this lady had already been crippled to this extent, which really made her pity the lady. Furthermore since Master had suddenly ordered them to bring her out today, things did not bode well for her.
