WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE - WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE Chapter 34 - Allies Take What They Need Individually
“The emperor really over praised me. Besides, I didn’t deceive anyone. It is just that people always like to hearsay.” Bai Aoxue appreciated the awkward appearance of Jun Wuhen.
After listening to Bai Aoxue’s words, Jun Wuhen thought carefully. He was indeed heard from other people. And he initially greeted this marriage to Bai Suxue, but Bai Qiwei recommended Bai Aoxue and said she was easier to be controlled.
Now it seemed that the people in the world were all wrong, so were Bai Qiwei and him. All this was because they listened to others.
Seeing Jun Wuhen thinking, Bai Aoxue slowly got up from the soft chair.
“Tell you the truth. Aoxue is just a woman who pays no attention to the outside world. I have lived in hot water every day since my mother passed away. I thought that my whole life would just be like this.”
After glancing at Jun Wuhen, Bai Aoxue then continued: “But my sister and her mother are aggressive, and I deserve to die. I know that Your Majesty’s order cannot be violated. I have no complaints about which one I will marry and what I only want is getting back my own things!”
Jun Wuhen stared at Bai Aoxue without blinking since he was afraid of missing any expression of Bai Aoxue.
However, he was still disappointed. Bai Aoxue did not change from the beginning. She was always calm and persistent.
Those two contradicted expressions let Jun Wuhen’s suspicion about Bai Aoxue fade a little bit.
“Do you think I should trust you?” Jun Wuhen said faintly, sweeping away his restlessness and anxiety.
“Shouldn’t Your Majesty believe me?” Bai Aoxue did not answer Jun Wuhen but asked him.
Looking at Bai Aoxue and listening to her question, Jun Wuhen got more interested in her.
“Haha, tell me, why should I believe you. If you want to recapture all of your property, you can ask Ye Zhaojue for help. Why do you choose me?” Jun Wuhen laughed.
Bai Aoxue heard the words of Jun Wuhen and then burst into laughter.
“Your Majesty, are you making fun of me? If Your Majesty didn’t put me on the cusp today, how would Aoxue need to do this? I am jumping into the trap that you have set this morning.” Looking at Jun Wuhen, Bai Aoxue said slowly.
Although Jun Wuhen was shocked, he kept silent and waited for the rest part of Bai Aoxue’s speech.
“What Your Majesty did today is forcing me to be obedient. If you haven’t done so, I may have a better choice. But now, I have to find the greatest shelter.” Bai Aoxue continued.
Jun Wuhen noticed ridicule from her indifferent and ethereal voice.
“Since ancient times, those who suit their actions to the time are wise. I just want to live, and I believe that Your Majesty can protect me. This is my choice.” Bai Aoxue said her decision in one breath.
Success or failure depended on this move.
“Bai Aoxue, you are really smart. You know how to seize the opportunity and occasion. If I kill such a talented person, I am the guilty one.” Jun Wuhen looked at Bai Aoxue with appreciation.
Although his words were vague, Bai Aoxue knew that Jun Wuhen has already had decision in mind.
“I said that I just want to live and recapture everything I have lost!” Bai Aoxue looked at Jun Wuhen with firm eyes.
“Recapture everything that you have lost! Good point! You are similar to me since we both aim to recapture everything we’ve lost. Luckily, you are a woman.” Jun Wuhen seemed to be in sigh.
Bai Aoxue just laughed after hearing to Jun Wuhen’s words.
“Well, you could go back. If there are any tasks, I will send someone to inform you. Now you just need to be at ease and wait for the wedding.” Turning around and waving his hand, Jun Wuhen said to Bai Aoxue.
Bai Aoxue slightly saluted and said: “Forgive my retreat. Your Majesty please also rest earlier.”
Then she turned and walked toward the door.
When Bai Aoxue turned away, Jun Wuhen also turned around. He watched Bai Aoxue’s pretty and graceful figure gradually disappear behind the bead curtain.
“Bai Aoxue, Bai Aoxue. I hope that you won’t let me down! This is the only bet in my life!” Jun Wuhen looked at the place where Bai Aoxue disappeared, and then he faintly whispered.
Bai Aoxue slowly walked out of the royal study room but looked back when she was about to step out of the door.
She looked at Jun Wuhen standing with hands behind his back, while that bright yellow royal robe was covered be a lonely atmosphere.
Bai Aoxue thought secretly: I have always been different from you. I had never gotten it before, so I didn’t lose. And you had got it, but you lost it! It was doomed that we would be opposites forever!
Turning around quickly, Bai Aoxue left the imperial study room without any nostalgia.
“Miss Bai, you’re coming out. Let me walk you back?” Eunuch Zhao immediately sprung to ask Bai Aoxue when he saw her.
“Thank you, Eunuch Zhao. But Eunuch Zhao, you should still stay here waiting for His Majesty. I remember the routine and I can go back by myself.” Bai Aoxue tactfully refused Eunuch Zhao’s kindness.
Eunuch Zhao thought Bai Aoxue was reasonable, so he nodded: “So Miss Bai, please go back soon since it’s getting late. You should go back to rest earlier.”
After saying goodbye to Eunuch Zhao, Bai Aoxue trotted back to Moyu Hall.
When Bai Aoxue went back to Moyu Hall, Hongxiu and Wenxi were still outside. They immediately came to greet Bai Aoxue when they saw her coming back.
“Miss Bai, you are back. We should go get some hot water for you to take a bath.” Hongxiu said tamely.
Bai Aoxue also felt weary today, so she nodded: “If there is Sappanwood, you could put some of it into the water.”
Although Hongxiu was confused when she heard that, she did not ask too much. It was Wenxi, who stood aside, who was slightly surprised.
Bai Aoxue didn’t care about her reaction since Wenxi was not simple at the first place.
But now all of this had nothing to do with her. As long as they didn’t provoke her, everything would be fine. If not, they would have no other end but death.
“Okay, please go to rest first. We will move the tub into your room when everything is settled.” Finding Bai Aoxue was tired, Hongxiu couldn’t help but said so.
Bai Aoxue nodded and said: “Thank you for your hard work.”
Hongxiu and Wenxi were almost flattered when they heard Bai Aoxue’s words: “Not at all. Not at all.”
Bai Aoxue said no more and quickly walked into the inner room.
Bai Aoxue, who entered the house, saw Mumian keep circling the room.
“Mumian, didn’t I let you to rest? Why are you still waiting for me now?” Bai Aoxue pretended to be angry.
When Mumian saw Bai Aoxue come back, she immediately ran to her: “Miss, I can’t fall asleep unless you come back.”
Bai Aoxue couldn’t help laughing when she heard what Mumian said. She said: “Well, didn’t I come back? Now go to rest. I will take a break after washing. We still have to go back to Prime Minister’s mansion tomorrow morning.”
When Mumian saw Bai Aoxue’s back, her hanging heart was also settled. And she also felt tired.
“Miss, please also take a break earlier. I’m going to bed now.” She said to Bai Aoxue while at the same time yawned inelegantly.
“Ok. Look at you. You can’t even open your eyes.” Bai Aoxue gently pushed the Mumian.
Bai Aoxue didn’t walk to the inner room until watching Mumian fall sleep.
Once entering the inner room, Bai Aoxue felt a breath that did not belong to her.
That man took the lead when she just wanted to speak.
“You finally come back. You still know the road, don’t you?” The joking male voice floated out of the dark room.
Bai Aoxue’s first reaction was to look out. She calmed down after making sure that Mumian didn’t hear him.
“Well, do you come to interrogate me since you don’t believe me?” Bai Aoxue went into the inner room and looked at Jun Yeyan who was leaning against the window.
Jun Yeyan overlapped his hands, his black-ink hair scattered casually just like smooth silk beneath the moonlight.
Looking at the Bai Aoxue who slowly walked in, Jun Yeyan cannot deny that Bai Aoxue amazed him today.
He has seen thousands of women in red dresses, but he has never seen such a unique woman who could make the red dress so free and easy.
It seemed that this red robe just existed for her. The natural indifference temperament matched with the red robe of Bai Aoxue, which was like a fire, was contradicted and neutral at the same time, especially those pair of phoenix-like eyes that seemed to ignore everything worldly, narrow and charming.
“I just come to see whether you’re lost or not. At least we are in partnership. How can there even be no trust between us? You tell me?” Jun Yeyan asked casually.
After listening to the words of Jun Yeyan, Bai Aoxue slightly stunned.
“Trust?” Bai Aoxue seemed to ask herself.
After a long time, Bai Aoxue raised up the corners of her lips. Jun Yeyan was intoxicated with that unspeakable charming of her.
“Unfortunately, trust you? I can’t make it!”
Jun Yeyan was originally obsessed with that nebulous smile of Bai Aoxue, but he suddenly returned to him after listening to her words.
Sweeping the frivolity of the past, Jun Yeyan faintly narrowed his long phoenix-like eyes and looked at Bai Aoxue with coldness and aggressiveness.
It was not a day or two for Bai Aoxue to deal with Jun Yeyan, knowing that it was the precursor for him to fly into a rage. However, she was not obliged to flatter him. There was nothing between them except cooperative relationship.
“Don’t you know that cooperation means you need to give your collaborator one-hundred- present trust? Isn’t there a phrase called cold lip, decayed teeth?” Jun Yeyan looked at Bai Aoxue without blinking.
After listening to the words of Jun Yeyan, Bai Aoxue sneered: “Hey, don’t you know ever trust anyone easily? Maybe one day he will push you down the abyss behind you!”
When Jun Yeyan heard what Bai Aoxue said and just wanted to be angry, he saw Bai Aoxue’s eyes were full of melancholy, so he slightly withdrew his anger.
“Since I, Jun Yeyan, decided to trust you, I will always trust you. I don’t care what you have experienced. If you want to cooperate with me, you should show your sincerity since the stakes of this game are our lives.” His unquestionable voice let Bai Aoxue speechless.
Jun Yeyan looked at silent Bai Aoxue and said: “Since you have the courage to cooperate with me, it is best for you to trust me. There is no betrayal. When things are settled, we don’t interfere with each other for the rest of our lives!”
Bai Aoxue did not argue with him after listening to what Jun Yeyan said.
Bai Aoxue also realized that perhaps it was Mumian, who accompanied with her after she arrived at this different world, which made the homeless Bai Aoxue become indecisive and overcautious.
Should she stop being unrestrained and unhurried just because of coming to a different world and facing such a difficult situation?
The answer was of course not! Who was Bai Aoxue ever afraid of!
“It’s my life that I’ve bet. If you think I will be afraid, you are wrong. I, Bai Aoxue, would never be irresponsible. Since I have cooperated with you, you won’t be betrayed. You can rest assured.” Bai Aoxue was stunned by Jun Yeyan and said so without hesitation.
Jun Yeyan looked at Bai Aoxue whose eyes were glaring like the most shining star in the night sky, firm and unswerving.
This side of her was indeed the most attractive Bai Aoxue!
