WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE - WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE Chapter 37 - To Destroy Flowers
When Bai Aoxue heard her name, she raised up her eyebrows beyond expectation. She turned around to the direction of Cangsheng but saw him firmly looking at her.
Bai Aoxue probably knew what of kind imperial edict it was.
Stepping forward, Bai Aoxue slowly knelt down and said: “Bai Aoxue, the daughter of a minister, receives the imperial edict.”
At the same time, those people in Prime Minister’s mansion kneeled together with Bai Aoxue.
“Long live the emperor!”
No longer being hesitated, Cangsheng opened up the imperial edict and read: “Divine rights come from Gods; His Majesty enacts the imperial edict. I grant Bai Aoxue, the first daughter of Prime Minister Bai, who is elegant and has a pure heart, who is kind and gentle, to my royal brother who is the 5th prince of Chengxi Dynasty. I am happy to announce this news. Their wedding is held after ten days. And I wish that they will love and cherish each other for the rest of their lives!”
He finished the imperial edict in one breath, and then he was surrounded by silence.
“Thanks for His Majesty for granting marriage to us. Aoxue is greatly appreciated!” Bai Aoxue’s indifferent voice sounded in the quiet front yard.
There was no trace of emotion in Bai Aoxue’s voice. Everyone wanted to hear more but Bai Aoxue no longer spoke.
Bai Aoxue took over the imperial edict from Cangsheng’s hands and looked at everyone.
But everyone’s eyes were filled with shock. They all thought that the current Bai Aoxue may resist, but never expect that Bai Aoxue would receive the imperial edict so easily.
Bai Aoxue’s lips slightly curled and tilted, and it was rosy without using lipstick. Her smile was just like the melting of the first snow. The present were all flipped.
“How? You don’t come to congratulate me? I have to leave in ten days. Aren’t you guys happy?” Bai Aoxue was laughing, but the words she asked actually influenced everyone.
“Bai Aoxue, stop being so mad! I will see whether you could still laugh after a few days!” Bai Suxue looked at Bai Aoxue’s smile and only felt it unusually sarcastic.
Bai Suxue, who did not think too much, immediately stood up and yelled.
Looking at her sister who had the same blood as her, there was nothing but indifference in Bai Aoxue’s eyes.
At this time, Bai Aoxue felt grateful that the original Bai Aoxue had already passed away. If she were still there, would she still have the courage to live after seeing her sister and her families treat her like this?
Just when Bai Aoxue was about to talk, Cangsheng who couldn’t stand it anymore replied: “Miss Bai, don’t forget that I haven’t let you up yet. You are greatly disrespectful to His Majesty!”
At this time, Bai Suxue discovered that everyone around her was still kneeling on the ground including Bai Aoxue. Only she stood because of being emotional.
Bai Suxue’s face turned pale immediately.
“Suxue! What are you doing! Kneel down!” Bai Qiwei punished her loudly.
After hearing the voice of Bai Qiwei, Bai Suxue got back to herself and quickly knelt on the ground.
“Please forgive me! Please forgive me, His Majesty! I didn’t mean to offend!” Bai Suxue explained with anxiousness.
She forgot that the emperor was not here at all.
No longer taking care of Bai Suxue, Cangsheng turned his head and looked at Bai Aoxue: “Miss Bai, take it!”
Bai Aoxue withdrew her doubtful sight and then received the imperial edict from Cangsheng: “Thanks for His Majesty’s grace!”
“Miss Bai, you could stand up.” Cangsheng also knew that Bai Aoxue had doubts, but he didn’t explain it.
“Well, since I have completed the task leaving by His Majesty, I will not stay too long.” Cangsheng took one step ahead of Bai Qiwei.
After Bai Qiwei listened to Cangsheng words, he only had to nod: “So, I won’t keep you.”
Then he walked out of the front hall with Cangsheng.
Before leaving, he glared at Bai Suxue who had been kneeling on the ground.
Bai Aoxue looked at Bai Qiwei leaving with Cangsheng. When she was about to leave, she heard Su Mengrou’s voice.
“Bai Aoxue, I should congratulate you! You are so lucky!” Every word she said contained soft thread.
Bai Aoxue listened to Su Mengrou’s words and said with a frank smile: “Yes, I am lucky. However, I don’t need your congratulations.”
Su Mengrou got anxious when she heard that.
“Bai Aoxue! Don’t be so unreasonable. Do you really think that you are so great relying on your identity? At best, you are just a castaway!” Su Mengrou sputtered.
Bai Suxue who knelt on the ground also said loudly when Bai Aoxue was just about to talk: “My cousin is right. You are a waste abandoned by father! Do you think that marrying a prince is great? You are a perfect match! One is ugly and the other is a weak loser!”
Listening to Bai Suxue’s words, Bai Aoxue was not angry but laughed. “You are both eloquent. Please continue. I’m listening, I won’t leave until you two finish.”
Bai Suxue and Su Mengrou looked at each other. They didn’t get used to it when they saw Bai Aoxue look like this.
“What have we said? We just said the truth. How? You Bai Aoxue are wronged?” Su Mengrou covered up her mouth and smiled.
Bai Aoxue, who stood aside, can endure, while Mumian cannot. She shouted: “You two don’t go too far. You don’t deserve to take about what kind of person my Miss is!”
Although Hongxiu and Wenxi were shocked, they did not have the intention of defending their Miss.
When Su Mengrou listened to Mumian, she snapped a furious reply: “Cousin, I can’t image that there is such a mean servant in Prime Minister’s mansion. She even dares to interject the conversation of Miss. I’m going to slap her face hard today!”
After Su Mengrou finished speaking, she walked toward Mumian. Her original beauty and brightness were all disappeared.
When Bai Suxue heard the words of Su Mengrou, her mind was dull for a moment. It was already too late to for her to stop Su Mengrou.
At the moment, all Su Mengrou thought was that: If I can’t beat her Miss, can’t I slap the servant? Today I was going to hit the face of you, Bai Aoxue!
Su Mengrou, who was immersed in her own fantasy, did not see that Bai Aoxue’s calculated eyes.
Bai Aoxue looked at Su Mengrou who came to Mumian, playing with the oiled paper umbrella, which was forgotten to take away by Cangsheng, and then said: “Wenxi, slap her twenty times.”
Wenxi, who was originally planning to enjoy the show, was a little shocked when she was called by Bai Aoxue. She asked: “Miss, me?”
Bai Aoxue listened to Wenxi’s words and turned to her direction: “I don’t like to repeat. If there is a second time, you could just leave.”
Wenxi was stunned about Bai Aoxue’s words. Bai Aoxue was indeed temperamental. She hurriedly said: “You are right. I will not commit again!”
After finishing speaking, Wenxi quickly walked towards Su Mengrou.
And Su Mengrou has not come back to herself from this series of things. She just wanted to hit Mumian.
Wenxi walked among Su Mengrou and Mumian, and then looked at Su Mengrou: “Forgive me for the offense, Miss. Twenty slaps.” Leaving Su Mengrou no time to react, Wenxi slapped Su Mengrou in the face.
Wenxi was a martial artist. That slap of her caused a clear handprint to appear on Su Mengrou’s original rosy cheek. Her small face was already red and swollen.
Su Mengrou covered her face and looked at Wenxi with livid disbelief: “Hey! You bitch! You dare to hit me!?”
Hearing Su Mengrou yelling at her, Wenxi frowned and said loudly: “I am the maidservant given to Miss by His Majesty. It is my duty to protect Miss. Now you offend Miss, you should be punished!”
After Wenxi finished, she gave another slap to the cute face of Su Mengrou.
When the people present were all thinking that Su Mengrou had to suffer that slap, Su Mengrou had cleverly escaped.
Bai Aoxue unexpectedly raised up her eyebrows. This Su Mengrou actually hid some talents.
Wenxi was quite unpleasant about Su Mengrou’s escape: “Miss Su escaped for what? Do you want me to report to His Majesty?”
Bai Aoxue listened to Wenxi’s words and appreciated it. This Wenxi was really smart and knew how to use her advantages.
Bai Suxue, who stood aside, wasn’t in the mood to care about these things. At this time, she was entangled in jealousy. She did not think that Bai Aoxue could actually get the appreciation of Jun Wuhen.
In the mind of Bai Suxue, granting maidservants to Bai Aoxue represented that Jun Wuhen’s appreciation.
Su Mengrou, on the other side, was in a dilemma.
If she didn’t hide, her face would get wounded thanks to the vicious attack of Wenxi. She would not be able to attend various banquets or go out to meet people. Besides, there would also be unnecessary gossips.
But if she hid, then Wenxi could say that she violated His Majesty. At that time, taking off a layer of skin would be the best result!
Thinking of this, Su Mengrou was annoyed in her mind. She did not think that Jun Wuhen enacted the imperial edict at today. Bai Aoxue accepted it with pleasure was even harder for her believe.
Today, the acceptance of Bai Aoxue made her far from that person. But she was not reconciled at all!!
It was she who found that person. He was clearly belonged to her. She worked so hard for that person. But now he became out of reach.
How could she didn’t harbor hatred? How could she be reconciled!
Thinking about this, Su Mengrou raised her head and looked at Bai Aoxue with resentment: “Bai Aoxue, you should stop being arrogant like this! One day, you would be stepped on by me!”
Bai Aoxue looked at Su Mengrou, and only felt that Su Mengrou’s resentment against her was unreasonable.
It was normal for Bai Suxue or Su Qianqian to hate her. But Su Mengrou has never been offended by her. On the contrary, she often bullied Bai Aoxue, who was once weak, together with Bai Suxue.
“Hey, I am stepped on by you? Don’t say that I didn’t give you chances. Today, I, Bai Aoxue, swear. If you have such ability, why do you need to rely on the concubine and her daughter of Prime Minister’s mansion? Wenxi, slap her!” Bai Aoxue sneered.
After receiving Bai Aoxue’s instruction, Wenxi no longer relented. She quickly slapped both cheeks of Su Mengrou with lightning speed.
This time, Su Mengrou did not evade. Instead, she took the twenty slaps.
Wenxi walked back to Bai Aoxue and respectfully said: “Miss. Twenty slaps. No one missed.”
Bai Aoxue nodded with satisfaction: “Very good! Remember, today’s move is called “destroy flowers”!”
When Wenxi heard it, she felt that it was reasonable. When she turned around, she only saw that the corners of Su Mengrou’s mouth were bloodshot, and her cheeks were swollen like pig’s heads.
Su Mengrou raised her hand stiffly and pointed at the direction of Bai Aoxue: “You, you, you, you…you wait!” Then she fell backwards to the ground.
Bai Aoxue looked at Su Mengrou pass out and smiled coldly: “Let’s go. The farce is over.”
After that, she took the lead and walked out of the front hall.
Mumian and other people also followed quickly.
They only left the stunned Su Mengrou, the scared Bai Suxue, and the servants who were watching the play.
When Bai Qiwei came back and saw the scene in the front hall, his anger also rose to the critical point.
