WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE - WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE Chapter 32 - The Origin of Moyu Hall
After Bai Aoxue entered Moyu Hall, Eunuch Zhao left the two maidservants and then retreated.
Looking at this elegant and chic environment, Bai Aoxue also couldn’t help falling in love with Moyu Hall in mind.
“Miss Bai, if you have orders, you can command us.” The respectful voices of the two maidservants also made Bai Aoxue realize that she was still under surveillance.
“Well, I know, I need nothing right now. You can retreat.” Bai Aoxue nodded faintly.
“Okay, if you have any needs, you can call our names. I am Hongxiu and she is Wenxi.” Hongxiu and Wenxi just wanted to retreat after saluting respectfully.
And Bai Aoxue looked at the two maidservants and suddenly remembered something she almost forgot.
“Hey! You wait. I have some questions for you to answer.” Bai Aoxue hurriedly stopped those two maidservants.
Hongxiu and Wenxi immediately stopped when they heard Bai Aoxue’s words.
“Please go head, Miss Bai. As long as they are the things that Hongxiu and Wenxi know, we will solve your problems one by one.” Wenxi said cleverly.
Bai Aoxue knew that these two maidservants belonged to Jun Wuhen, so she did not intend to beat around the bush.
“Here is the case. When His Majesty let me stay in Moyu Hall, I noticed that those present were shocked, but I don’t know the origin of this Moyu Hall.” Bai Aoxue said while observing expressions of the two maidservants.
As expected, Bai Aoxue founded that panics flashed away from their faces.
“Presumably, you two have been in the imperial palace for a long time. I hope that you can tell me what kind of residence this Moyu Hall is.” Bai Aoxue swiftly changed the subject; her eyes were firm.
The two maidservants did not expect that Bai Aoxue would ask questions so directly.
From their point of view, for such an official daughter, even if she was confused, she would not directly ask questions. Even if she asked, it would be euphemistic.
But Bai Aoxue was really straightforward. She was so straightforward that overwhelmed them.
Looking at these two hesitated maidservants, Aoxue knew what they were thinking.
“Actually, even if you don’t tell me now, I will know sometime. But if I don’t know it now, I will probably do some improper things. When His Majesty calls to account, you will be beheaded.” Bai Aoxue smiled.
When the two maidservants heard Bai Aoxue’s words, they also felt that she sounded reasonable.
The two looked at each other and both got affirmation in their eyes.
“Miss Bai, in fact, we don’t know much.” Hongxiu nervously looked at Bai Aoxue.
“Even if you don’t know much, you indeed know something. You should know what to do. I won’t hurt you. After all, there are no enmity and hatred between us.” Bai Aoxue looked at the two maidservants and said.
They listened to Bai Aoxue’s words and made decisions.
“I hope that Miss Bai will not be shocked. In fact, we were surprised when we heard that Miss Bai would live in Moyu Hall. But we servants dare not speculate His Majesty’s mind.” Wenxi looked at Bai Aoxue seriously and said.
Bai Aoxue listened to Wenxi’s words and raised up her eyebrows slightly. It seemed that this Moyu Hall was indeed important and mysterious.
“Shoot.” Bai Aoxue nodded, indicating that they can continue.
“Moyu Hall was built when the deceased emperor was still alive. There was only one person who had lived in here. That person was the beloved woman of the deceased emperor. Later on, the deceased emperor had made regulations before he passed away. Except for the empress of Chengxi, no one can live in here. Otherwise, she would be put to death.” Hongxiu finished her words in one breath.
However, Bai Aoxue’s expression didn’t change, let alone being shocked or flattered.
After listening to Hongxiu’s words, Bai Aoxue guessed the trick of Jun Wuhen.
He used Moyu Hall to push her on the cusp, letting her become the target of the public criticism. Both concubines and ministers would want to get rid of her who suddenly emerged in the halfway as “Cheng Yaojin “.
But if her father didn’t love her and abandoned her like valueless rubbish, even if she was the honorable first daughter of Prime Minister’s mansion, she only had one way to go which led to death.
If she wanted to live, she could only seek for the blessing of Jun Wuhen.
That flicker of hostility in Bai Aoxue’s eyes was unable for Hongxiu and Wenxi to notice.
“Who is the woman that used to live here? Where is she now? Do you know it?” Bai Aoxue wanted to know who had lived here.
“We don’t know that. We are only told by the old generation of the palace that the mother of the 5th prince, the deceased Her Highness Yuanshuang, was so favored because of looking like her.” Hongxiu was actually very curious about what kind of legendary woman can get such favor.
After listening to Hongxiu’s words, Bai Aoxue nodded thoughtfully, while Wenxi, on the other side, made as if to speak but then stopped.
“Wenxi, are you going to say something?” Bai Aoxue said faintly.
“This is the case. That woman seemed to be a saint of a heresy in the circle of swordsmen. Because of her injuries, she happened to be taken back to the palace by the emperor who was travelling incognito. After the recovery, she left.” Wenxi said with a panic sight.
Bai Aoxue listened to Wenxi’s words and felt that there was something unreasonable, but she could not figure it out at the moment.
When she noticed Wenxi’s panicked eyes, Bai Aoxue knew that Wenxi knew more than that. But these things were not related to her. Besides, she was not interested in affairs of the royal family.
“I see. Thank you for telling me this story. Since it’s already late, you could go to rest.” Bai Aoxue smoothly gave each of them a silver ingot.
The two didn’t reject. They took over the silver ingots of Bai Aoxue and retreated after saluting respectfully.
Bai Aoxue was disgusted with Jun Wuhen’s behavior. If Jun Wuhen knew that she intended to approach him from the beginning, and then submit to him, she wondered what kind of expression he would show.
Bai Aoxue faintly smiled and thought secretly in mind: Jun Wuhen, as thoughtful as you were, you would not expect that you have already fallen into the trap of others!
It was called that a mantis caught a cicada, a yellowbird behind!
“Miss Bai, I have brought Mumian over for you.” Just as Bai Aoxue thought, Eunuch Zhao’s sharp voice was also coming.
“Miss! Miss! I am coming. Where are you?” The excitement voice of Mumian emitted from outside the door.
Bai Aoxue heard her and quickly walked towards the door.
“Creak”, the quaint carved wooden door was pushed open lightly. Mumian’s lovely small face showed up in front of Bai Aoxue.
“Thank you, Eunuch Zhao. Did Mumian bring any trouble to Eunuch Zhao?” Bai Aoxue said with a pair of smiley eyes.
“Hhh, how is that coming from? This girl Mumian couldn’t be more lovable, and I like her very much.” Eunuch Zhao looked at the Mumian and laughed.
Bai Aoxue knew that Mumian was pleasing since she was innocent and clean like a piece of white paper. This was also one of the reasons why Bai Aoxue wanted to protect Mumian.
There were fewer people like Mumian in the whole world. Every time she looked at Mumian, Bai Aoxue felt that transcending to here was the happiest thing for all these years.
Even in the face of all the spite and frame-up in Prime Minister’s mansion, in the face of Jun Wuhen’s tricks and using, in the face of the cooperated relationship with Jun Yeyan, she could keep going.
“Thank you for your praise, Eunuch Zhao. Aoxue is really ashamed of wasting your time today. Since it’s already late, Eunuch Zhao, please also rest early.” Bai Aoxue agreed with what Eunuch Zhao said.
“If that’s the case, I’d better retreat. If Miss Bai has any need, you could call the two servants outside the door.” Eunuch Zhao retreated after dinning to Bai Aoxue.
“Miss, where are we? Why are we spending the night here in the palace!?” Once Eunuch Zhao left, Mumian immediately kept asking Bai Aoxue.
“This is a yard where His Majesty has let me stay. You don’t need to worry about it.” Bai Aoxue gently tapped Mumian’s head.
“But, Miss. When I came over with Eunuch Zhao, everyone looked at me with a strange expression!” Mumian said in confusion.
When Bai Aoxue listened to the Mumian, a thrilling light flashed across her eyes. She guessed that some garrulous scaremongers must be gossiping.
“It’s okay. Don’t care about what they say or what they look at. We only stay in the palace for one night then leave tomorrow. Don’t care.” Bai Aoxue patted Mumian’s hand to comfort her.
“I just feel that they must take about Miss again secretly. I hate them speaking ill of you. Miss, you are undoubtedly so kind.” Mumian pouted.
When Bai Aoxue listened to the Mumian’s words, she burst into laughter: “There are enormous people who don’t like me in the world. Am I going to make all of them like me? Isn’t it tired? Just go to rest. ”
Once heard Bai Aoxue’s words, Mumian thought that Bai Aoxue was reasonable.
“Miss is right. I won’t care about other people’s views in the future!” Mumian looked at Bai Aoxue with a burning gaze.
“Uh-huh. Go to rest.” Bai Aoxue nodded.
Jun Wuhen, on the other side, has just lulled Liu Manyun to sleep.
When Eunuch Zhao saw Jun stepping out of the bedroom, he immediately sprung up to greet him.
“Your Majesty, where are you leaving for now?” Eunuch Zhao asked, stooping his body.
“Royal study room. Send someone well in defense to Moyu Hall to inform Bai Aoxue. Let her come and see me. Be careful. Don’t let other people know.” Jun Wuhen said indifferently.
Eunuch Zhao was shocked about Jun Wuhen’s words, but he didn’t dare to ask.
After letting the Mumian go to rest, Bai Aoxue felt that someone was watching her secretly, but this kind of gaze was not dangerous. Bai Aoxue knew who the person was without thinking.
Observing the pattern of Moyu Hall, Bai Aoxue actually liked it very much. The elegant and indifferent atmosphere was probably similar to the people who have lived before.
Thinking about this, Bai Aoxue was just about to stand up when she noticed an air of an unfamiliar person has broken in.
A beam of light flashing across her eyes, Bai Aoxue knew that Jun Wuhen’s servant has arrived.
“Who are you? Do you know what your punishment is for breaking in the imperial palace at night?” Bai Aoxue pretended not to know who came in, a pair of beautiful eyes flashed fear.
“Miss Bai. Please forgive my boldness. I’m sent by His Majesty. Please go to the royal study!” The man of course saw the panic in the eyes of Bai Aoxue. He said with a calm voice.
“It’s already getting late. Are you bluffing!?” Bai Aoxue asked doubtfully.
“Miss Bai, please don’t be suspicious. I am the captain of imperial guards Meng Fei, and I would not lie or hind the truth.” The man named Meng Fei patiently explained to Bai Aoxue.
And he also took out the token of his title and gave it to Bai Aoxue.
Bai Aoxue heard what Meng Fei said, and she thought: This Jun Wuhen moved indeed carefully. Even the captain of guards was sent out.
After taking the token, Bai Aoxue observed it thoroughly and then said: “Aoxue doesn’t know what the tokens in the palace look like. But Lord Meng doesn’t look like a liar. So, Aoxue will go with Lord Meng.”
