WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE - WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE Chapter 28 - Feigned Civility
How couldn’t Bai Aoxue catch Bai Suxue’s sarcasm? She picked up her eyebrows slightly: “What a pity. His Majesty still summoned me even out of official reasons, unlike you, my sister. It’s too hard for you to see him.”
Bai Suxue angrily shivered after listening to Bai Aoxue’s words.
“Don’t you know, my sister? Expect for good things, going to see His Majesty also could due to bad things. There is no turning back for you this time.” Bai Suxue gnashed.
“Thanks for your concern, sister. I will definitely have a good look at the emperor of Chengxi dynasty for you this time, although you can’t.” Bai Aoxue always could touch her sore spot with one sentence.
For example, now, Bai Aoxue’s words made Bai Suxue speechless.
Yes, although they were the daughters of an official family, it was difficult to see the emperor, not to mention that she was just the daughter of a concubine without status.
“Behave yourself, sister.” Bai Suxue glared at Bai Aoxue.
“Thanks for your blessing words. However, sister, aren’t you leaving yet? I need to freshen up. You can’t afford the consequence of wasting my time.” Bai Aoxue’s eyes were cold, without a touch of fluctuated emotions.
When Bai Suxue heard it, she choked her angry when she just wanted to release: “Sister, take your time. Please forgive my retreat.”
Bai Suxue, at this moment, hated Bai Suxue in heart. She looked at Bai Aoxue’s small yard with hatred before leaving.
“Just marry a good-for-nothing, bitch!” Bai Suxue glared at the small courtyard.
A few maidservants, who stood beside her, quickly bowed their heads and dared not to say a word after listening to Bai Suxue.
Bai Suxue looked at those maidservants beside her and became angrier.
“I got angry when I saw your coward faces! You are lions among sheep while sheep among lions!” Bai Suxue left quickly after she finished her words.
But she didn’t see those maidservants looking at her with eyes full of disgust.
Mumian, on the other side, looked at Bai Suxue’s departure and couldn’t help saying: “Miss, this second daughter is obviously not a kind person. She even congratulates you. So vicious is she. ”
Bai Aoxue looked at Mumian’s annoyed appearance and stopped her business in hands to see her.
“Mumian, this world is just like this. Even if you can’t wait to kill that person, but more often, you still have to greet her with smile.”
Mumian wondered: “Miss, why would things be like this?”
“Hypocrisy, blackness, deceitfulness, these are human characters. Although they are very annoying, people have to behave like this most of the time.” Bai Aoxue solved Mumian’s problem with faintly voice.
“Miss, then, do I have to behave like that too?” Mumian innocently looked at Bai Aoxue.
Bai Aoxue reached out her hand and touched Mumian’s head: “You don’t need to, Mumian. You just need to be yourself and trust me.”
And I would guard your naiveté and let you keep being innocent forever. Bai Aoxue secretly continued her unfinished words in mind.
Mumian heard the words of Bai Aoxue, nodding equivocally.
But she didn’t know Bai Aoxue’s determination.
“Well, Mumian. Comb a simple hairstyle for me.” Looking at Mumian who strived to think, Bai Aoxue couldn’t help interrupting her.
After listening to Bai Aoxue’s words, she got rid of thoughts and pulled Bai Aoxue on the stool in front of the bronze mirror.
“Miss, what color do you want to wear in palace?” Mumian combed Bai Aoxue’s hair and thought about clothing for Bai Aoxue at the same time.
“Well, just that fiery red dress. Red is always my favorite color. It is as glory as the sun.” Bai Aoxue knew that it was also important to choose an appropriate dress.
“Well, Miss, what else do you want? I will go get you that dress.” Mumian satisfactorily looked at Bai Aoxue.
Bai Aoxue looked at the familiar face in the bronze mirror. She became faintly absentminded.
Even though the combination of her naturally rosy lips, lovely face together with those phoenix-like eyes seemed to have an air of contradictory, Bai Aoxue made people feel that there was a unique charm of her.
Her black hair was made to form a Jinghong bun by Xiangxue, making Aoxue’s fair face more beautiful and gorgeous.
“Miss, come and change clothes. We need to hurry up. We can’t let Eunuch Zhao wait too long.” Mumian brought that dress for Bai Aoxue.
Bai Aoxue quickly changed clothes with the help of Mumian. She couldn’t handle those ancient complicated clothes all by herself.
“Miss, you are so beautiful. I can say that you are the most beautiful lady in the whole capital. Others dare say it was the niece of Concubine Su, humph! How can she compare to my Miss!” Mumian looked at Bai Aoxue obsessively.
Bai Aoxue smiled slightly: “Our Mumian has a good taste. I have always been a beautiful girl.”
“Of course, you have always been the most beautiful one. It’s really a blessing for that 5th prince to marry you!” Mumian agreed with Bai Aoxue.
After listening to Mumian, Bai Aoxue shivered.
And Jun Yeyan, who was in the palace, sneezed inelegantly.
“Royal brother, what’s wrong?” The man looked at Jun Yeyan casually.
“Thanks for your caring, royal brother. I’m fine.” Jun Yeyan said with a playful smile.
The Emperor’s eyes were dark and deep. After listening to the words of Jun Yeyan, he said: “Good. Miss Bai should be in the palace in a minute.”
Listening to the man’s words, Jun Yeyan said without a trace of surprise: “It’s just a timid woman. Fine, I’ll marry her as my official wife. Anyway, women are everywhere.”
“Hahn, royal brother, what a kind heart you have! She is the daughter of Prime Minister Bai, anyhow.” The man smiled faintly.
Jun Yeyan knew that this man was testing him. He answered without leaking flaws at all: “Giving her that position is already a blessing. It’s best for her to stop fantasizing about other things!”
When the man heard Jun Yeyan, he smiled and shook his head. “Royal brother, you really need to change your temper. I don’t want you to offend Prime Minister Bai in this summoned marriage with her daughter. He is a two-dynasty’s old head.”
“Old head, so what? His daughter is timid and weak. Neither did she have virtues nor talents. Do you even want me to love and spoil her forever!?” Jun Yeyan said arrogantly.
Looking at Jun Yeyan, although the man had doubts, he stopped questioning.
“Alas, that’s all. I just hope that you will not blame me in the future.” The man looked at the Jun Yeyan.
Jun Yeyan listened to the man’s words: “Royal brother, you can rest assured. It’s just for show. I don’t care.”
Bai Aoxue, on the other side, who has just been dressed up, was about to set off.
“Mumian, where is Eunuch Zhao waiting?” Bai Aoxue asked, looking at the Mumian.
“Miss, Eunuch Zhao is in the front hall. Let’s go.” Mumian reminded of Eunuch Zhao who was still waiting, and then hurriedly took Bai Aoxue out.
“Mumian, let’s slower down a little bit. It will be fine for him to wait for a while.” Bai Aoxue saw the nervous and rash appearance of Mumian.
“Miss, we need to hurry up since we have been delayed for a long time. Eunuch Zhao will get angry.” Mumian shook her head seriously, rushing out with Bai Aoxue.
Bai Aoxue didn’t refute Mumian anymore. She secretly complained: Mumian’s character needed to be changed.
Following Mumian trotting to the front hall, Bai Aoxue saw Bai Suxue at a distance.
Of course, she also saw a middle-aged man with a proud look beside Bai Suxue.
When Bai Aoxue approached, she heard Bai Suxue denigrating her.
“Eunuch Zhao, Suxue has informed my sister. I think she has already got and is cleaning up right now.”
“Hum! I didn’t expect this Miss Bai to be so arrogant! Keep me waiting so long!” Eunuch Zhao apparently was dissatisfied with Bai Aoxue’s late arrival.
Bai Aoxue smiled indifferently and walked slowly into the front hall.
“Eunuch Zhao please don’t say this. I cannot know that you would show up today. Moreover, if I don’t dress up carefully and present myself before His Majesty unkemptly, he would get angry.”
Hearing an indifferent and ethereal voice coming from outside, Eunuch Zhao quivered and immediately turned to look at the lady at the door.
That fiery red robe looked like a tailor-made for her. She was graceful and elegant like a dazzling swan.
“Miss Bai?” Eunuch Zhao asked uncertainly.
After listening to Eunuch Zhao’s uncertain tone, Bai Aoxue smiled with a hand covering her mouth: “Eunuch Zhao, you’re really over praising me. Please call me Aoxue.”
When Eunuch Zhao heard Bai Aoxue’s words, he also determined that the woman in front of him was Bai Aoxue. Although he was puzzled, he did not show it.
“Miss Bai. You over praised me. I’m just a servant.” Looking at Bai Aoxue, Eunuch Zhao rarely let go of his pride.
He knew that this Bai Aoxue was not to be trifled with at the first glance. How could those rumors in the world be so out of the way?
“Eunuch Zhao is one of His Majesty’s favorites in palace. How could I over praise Eunuch Zhao?” Bai Aoxue looked at Eunuch Zhao modestly.
Bai Aoxue knew that people like him enjoyed compliments. Therefore, she would naturally take advantage of this character.
Sure enough, after listening to Bai Aoxue’s words, Eunuch Zhao swept away his unpleasantness: “Miss Bai, please don’t praise me anymore. We are still going to see His Majesty as soon as possible.”
“Eunuch Zhao, you’re reasonable. I feel sorry for wasting your time.” Bai Aoxue knew that Eunuch Zhao was popular in the imperial palace.
“It’ nothing, it’s nothing. I come here out of the blue. It’s not your fault, Miss Bai.” Looking at Bai Aoxue’s sincerely appearance, the impression of Bai Aoxue in his heart got improved.
Bai Suxue, who stood aside, looked at them with hatred in mind, acting as if nothing had happened.
“Sister, how honored you are to let Eunuch Zhao wait so long.” Bai Suxue said as if nothing has happened.
“This isn’t something that needs you to worry about. If you say fewer words, I am probably on the way to the imperial palace now.” Bai Aoxue looked at Bai Suxue indifferently.
It was this expression in her eyes that shocked Bai Suxue.
Eunuch Zhao, who was watching Bai’s daughters, followed Bai Aoxue to leave the front hall. An inexplicable light flashed away from his eyes.
Sitting in the stable carriage, Bai Aoxue slightly closed her eyes and rested; while Mumian, who sat beside her, was too excited to sit still.
“Miss, how fortunate I am to sit in a royal carriage!” Mumian wept excitedly.
At this moment, Bai Aoxue was thinking about the emperor’s intentions.
When she was just about to speak, she was interrupted by the voice of Eunuch Zhao outside the carriage.
“Miss Bai, it’s here.”
Looking at the whole imperial palace which was the most distinguished and most imposing place in Chengxi after getting out of the carriage, Bai Aoxue signed with emotions.
It was the place that enormous women dreamed of. It was also the place that enormous women buried their youths and enthusiasm of love.
Following Bai Aoxue, Mumian tremblingly stepped towards palace. Her fear towards the palace was stronger than any other emotions.
Along the way, Bai Aoxue carefully observed the entire palace. All guards were elites of martial arts.
It was always played on TV that there was no return of an assassin once he entered the palace.
“Miss Bai, His Majesty is inside the Hall. You could just walk in. Remember trying to be silent. Don’t make His Majesty unhappy.” Eunuch Zhao was not annoyed with Bai Aoxue, so he warned Bai Aoxue.
Bai Aoxue nodded calmly and walked in the Hall which symbolized the royal status of the emperor.
