WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE - WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE Chapter 36 - The First Beauty
“Cousin, my mother was really put into the ancestral hall by Bai Aoxue!” Bai Suxue said to gorgeous Su Mengrou who stood in front of her.
Looking at Bai Suxue who stood in face of her anxiously, although Su Mengrou felt disdainful, she didn’t show any intolerance and impatience since she could only depend on them now.
“Suxue, don’t worry. Tell me what is going on?” Su Mengrou gently comforted Bai Suxue.
Although Bai Suxue was jealous of Su Mengrou’s beautiful appearance, since they have been in the same shoe, after suppressing all emotions, she told Su Mengrou all of the details.
“Has Bai Aoxue really changed that much?” Su Mengrou couldn’t believe what Bai Suxue said.
How could she not know what kind of person Bai Aoxue was? She used to get involved when Bai Suxue bullied Bai Aoxue.
Bai Aoxue’s cowardice was notorious. Everyone who lived in the capital knew it.
However, some people have told her now that Bai Aoxue didn’t look like herself anymore.
“It’s true, my cousin. How can I lie to you? My mother has gone to the ancestral hall, and my father was hurt by Bai Aoxue in the arm!” Looking at Su Mengrou’s skeptical eyes, Bai Suxue said anxiously.
Su Mengrou was in great astonishment when she heard that Bai Aoxue even dared to hurt even Bai Qiwei.
“When did she become like this? Do you know the reason?” Su Mengrou calmed her mind and asked calmly.
Although the character of a person was acquired, Bai Aoxue’s dramatic change has really made Su Mengrou unable to believe.
“Once a time, I pushed her down the pond, but she actually survived. From then on, she became arrogant and erratic. She only said that she has seen through life and death, not afraid of anything anymore.” Bai Suxue faltered.
“You actually want to murder her? Suxue, Suxue, how can you have such a thought? She is your sister.” Su Mengrou looked at Bai Suxue with a grieved appearance.
She was secretly shocked; however, how ruthless Bai Suxue was.
She only felt that Su Mengrou was blaming her when she listened to her words. She yelled: “Su Mengrou, I let you come here to discuss the countermeasures. You need to find out your identity. You are not qualified to tell me what to do!”
When Su Mengrou listened to Bai Suxue’s words, her face turned white, and she harbored hatred in heart.
Su just came from a businessman’s family. If it wasn’t because Su Qianqian who married into the Prime Minister’s mansion, perhaps she was still unknown, not to mention can be called as—the first beauty in Chengxi!
Everyone else said that the Su family gained advantages from Su Qianqian. It was the so-called when a man got to the top, all his friends and relations got there with him.
But she was unwilling. She was talented and beautiful. If Su Qianqian didn’t marry into the Prime Minister’s mansion and cover her glory, maybe that person would notice her.
Now, she had to rely on Su Qianqian and her daughter. How could she not hate her cousin!
Swallowing the grievance in heart, Su Mengrou stared at Bai Suxue with her lovely eyes and said: “Cousin, you misunderstood me. I just said that because you are too careless. What are you going to do if uncle knows it? Although uncle loves you every much, Bai Aoxue was his daughter anyhow!”
Though Bai Suxue was still angry after listening to Su Mengrou’s words, she knew that Su Mengrou was good for her, so she no longer showed Su Mengrou that look.
“Cousin, you don’t need to worry about it. My father has already known it, and he did not punish me. So, it can be seen that Bai Aoxue is worthless in my father’s eyes!” Bai Suxue said proudly.
Su Mengrou was shocked by the cold-blood of Bai Qiwei after listening to what Bai Suxue said. He would completely abandon it if it was useless. It was really the typical practice of Bai Qiwei!
“That’s good. I am also relieved.” Su Mengrou pretended to be relieved.
“By the way, I heard that she was going to marry 5th prince, is it?” Su Mengrou acted to be inadvertent, while she got nervous because of this question.
When Bai Suxue heard the question raised by Su Mengrou, she suddenly felt better and changed her angry expression.
“Yes, my father said that His Majesty granted this marriage to them. She will marry that ugly prince after ten more days!” Bai Suxue guffawed.
However, when Su Mengrou heard this answer, the only remaining fluke in her heart was completely annihilated.
“But, isn’t it that Bai Aoxue has changed? Is she willing to marry 5th prince?” Su Mengrou asked while grasped Bai Suxue’s arm agitatedly.
Su Mengrou’s hand was so strong that Bai Suxue was pinched badly.
“Cousin, let it go! What are you doing! One of them has an ugly face and the other is talentless. They are just prefect for each other. Do you think it is wrong?!” Bai Suxue shouted.
Su Mengrou was also awakened by the scream of Bai Suxue. She awkwardly loosened Bai Suxue. Looking at the exploring eyes of Bai Suxue, Su Mengrou had a sudden panic.
“Suxue, I am sorry! I am too excited at that moment, and I wasn’t aware of my strength. I am also happy for those two useless people being together. What a perfect match!” Su Mengrou concealed the pain in her heart.
When Bai Suxue heard it, she immediately smiled: “I know it! You must be as happy as I am, cousin. Bai Aoxue deserves that!”
Looking at Bai Suxue who was gloating, Su Mengrou only felt that there were thousands of knives scraping her heart, and she has already lost the sense of pain.
“Miss, those in the front yard reported that the first Miss came back with a eunuch in the imperial palace!” A maidservant respectfully said outside the door but dared not to step into the room.
When Bai Suxue heard that Bai Aoxue came back, her eyes were cold while lit up when she heard that someone came from the palace.
“Cousin, let’s see what is that eunuch coming for!” Bai Suxue said excitedly, and she dragged Su Mengrou to the front yard without asking for her permission.
And Bai Aoxue and her gang here have also successfully returned to Prime Minister’s mansion.
“Miss Bai, we arrive at Prime Minister’s mansion.” Outside the carriage, the tender voice of Cangsheng sounded.
Bai Aoxue opened her eyes from catnap and said: “Okay.”
After receiving the message of Bai Aoxue, Cangsheng slowly lifted the curtain. Then Bai Aoxue, with the help of Mumian, leisurely walked out of the carriage.
The sun was shining outside. Bai Aoxue used her hand as shelter to block out its glaring light.
But in the next second, Bai Aoxue felt cool overhead. She found that Cangsheng held a delicate and elegant oiled paper umbrella once she turned around.
Bai Aoxue sent back a faint smile to Cangsheng while didn’t realize that her smile let somebody flipped.
“Thank you, Cangsheng.” Bai Aoxue said lightly.
On the other side, Hongxiu who came down from another carriage naturally took over the oiled paper umbrella.
“You are welcome, Miss Bai. This is my duty.” He did not insist and handed the umbrella to Hongxiu.
Noticing that there were onlookers, Bai Aoxue didn’t want to hesitate and took people into the Prime Minister’s mansion.
“Miss, you are back.” Those servants, who were working, gingerly greeted Bai Aoxue one by one when they saw her.
Bai Aoxue looked at these servants and slightly nodded in response.
“Miss, my lord is waiting for you in the front hall. He let you to see him when you come back.” Emerging from somewhere, Steward Bai walked to Bai Aoxue.
Bai Aoxue raised up her eyebrows beyond expectation. She did not expect that Bai Qiwei would see her so soon. It seemed that he wanted to grab some news from her.
“Lead the way.” Bai Aoxue didn’t reject since she also had something for Bai Qiwei.
Steward Bai glared at Bai Aoxue, and then turned around to lead the way.
Bai Aoxue certainly did not miss the hatred in Steward Bai’s eyes, but she did not know when she made Steward Bai resent her.
Thinking about Steward Bai’s expression, Bai Aoxue only felt that there were other factors involved!
When she came to the front hall, Bai Aoxue saw Bai Qiwei who sat in the main seat. At this time, his one hand was hanging, and the other health hand was holding a cup of tea.
Bai Aoxue entered the front hall without squinting. She looked Bai Qiwei in the eyes when she raised her head.
“Father, I wonder why you let me come over?” Bai Aoxue asked directly.
When Bai Qiwei heard it, the flames of his fury were burning up. He didn’t expect Bai Aoxue to be so arrogant even if he was so tolerant.
“Can’t I call you when nothing is happening?” Bai Qiwei resisted the anger in his mind.
Bai Aoxue, who knew that Bai Qiwei was fighting with his anger, sneered: “Father, if you have spare time, you’d better deal with those trifles at home. After all, now, I am also very annoyed.”
Raising his head, Bai Qiwei glared at Bai Aoxue: “What do you mean?!”
“Concubine Su is really bold. She swallowed up all the dowries that my mother left me. Now she even wants to pawn them. Father, you don’t know that, do you??” Bai Aoxue smiled faintly.
Hongxiu and others, who stood aside, were shocked. They did not expect that the relationship between Bai Aoxue and Bai Qiwei was hanging by a thread.
Just as Bai Aoxue wanted to continue, there came a delicate female voice.
“Aoxue, you can’t say that. My aunt is only temporarily managing them for you. How can you think of my aunt like this?”
Bai Aoxue’s lips slightly curled and tilted. She didn’t realize that someone would stand up for Su Qianqian. She slowly turned and looked at that girl.
Bai Aoxue looked at the girl in front of her. This girl was slightly similar to Bai Suxue. Her every twinkle and smile were exceedingly fascinating and charming.
If there was no mistake in Bai Aoxue’s memory, this girl was Su Qianqian’s niece who had the name of the first beauty in Chengxi—Su Mengrou.
Bai Aoxue looked at Su Mengrou without blinking. The smile at the corners of her mouth became more and more brilliant.
Everyone looked at these two outstanding girls and only felt that they could not move their eyes.
“Who are you to call me Aoxue? Didn’t Concubine Su teach you the etiquette of what do you need to call me? Hm?” Although wearing with that faint smile, every word that Bai Aoxue said was sparkling as a gem.
When Su Mengrou heard Bai Aoxue’s words, the originally pretended smile on her face completely disappeared. She shockingly glared at Bai Aoxue.
Su Mengrou did not expect that Bai Aoxue would provoke her and left her no room for negotiation at the first time she met the newly-born Bai Aoxue.
“Miss Bai, I know I was wrong!” Swallowing resentment, Su Mengrou gnashed.
Bai Aoxue looked at Su Mengrou’s appearance and nodded with satisfaction: “Good. Next time you’d better remember that when I talk to my father, there is no space for you to interject. It’s alright this time.”
After Bai Aoxue finished, she no longer looked at Su Mengrou. Instead, she stared at Bai Qiwei.
And Bai Qiwei felt depressed of the indifferent and sharp eyes of Bai Aoxue.
But when he saw Cangsheng behind Bai Aoxue, his eyes lit up.
“Cough. I don’t know what you come here for today?” Bai Qiwei pretended to cough.
Cangsheng had already been shocked by Bai Aoxue’s courage. Now Bai Qiwei’s words reminded of him that he still had tasks in addition to escorting Bai Aoxue.
“Prime Minister Bai, you are being too polite. And I specially came here for the imperial edict of His Majesty.” He said neither humbly nor pushy.
After finishing his words, he additionally glanced at Bai Aoxue, then he proceeded after making sure that she had no reaction: “Bai Aoxue, receive the imperial edict!”
