WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE - WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE Chapter 43 - Prepare the Bride-price
“Forget about it. I don’t need to say so much if you have your own plans. But are you really going to marry that hot-tempered Bai Aoxue after ten days?” Nalan Youhong still asked unwillingly.
After listening to Nalan Youhong’s words, Jun Yeyan slowly looked up at him. His dark and deep eyes seemed to say: “You even ask me this. Are you an idiot?”
“Of course, otherwise how can the game continue?” Jun Yeyan leisurely picked up an exquisite white jade cup then sipped the tea.
Nalan Youhong listened to the words of Jun Yeyan, and then sighed slightly: “Fine, this is your choice. It’s up to you.”
Nalan Youhong’s impression of Bai Aoxue was not bad, but he felt that Bai Aoxue and Jun Yeyan were the same type of people.
Their naturally characters which controlled others and their indomitable and stubborn momentum were completely the same. It was indeed not a good thing for these two people to live together.
Both of them were strong. They would not give up or compromise. If they lived together in the future, they would have many contradictions, which was not what Nalan Youhong would like to see.
Since Nalan family followed Jun Yeyan, they used the whole family as a stake. They could not afford to lose the foundation and everything of the past hundred years.
And Jun Yeyan cannot afford to lose, either.
He carried too many people’s hopes and duties, and he was destined to be a king.
How could Jun Yeyan not tell what Nalan Youhong wanted to say? However, what he chose and what he decided was worthy of a try.
“I know what you’re thinking about. Aren’t you curious about who will bow first if two people of the same character are living together?” Jun Yeyan lazily glanced at Nalan Youhong.
Nalan Youhong’s interest that was suppressed by the rationality came out after listening to Jun Yeyan’s words. He was interested in it at the first place, while rationality had always taken the upper hand.
“To be honest, I am very interested in Bai Aoxue. She is not as arrogant as those official ladies. It is funny even just to think about you and her future life!” Nalan Youhong said trickily.
After listening to Nalan Youhong’s words, Jun Yeyan leisurely stood up and said: “Do you think you have the possibility of laughing at me?”
Nalan Youhong frowned about what Jun Yeyan said. When he was about to talking, he was interrupted by Jun Yeyan.
“Go help me prepare the bride-price. I want my bride-price to be matchless in this world. I will greet my little princess with glory!”
Jun Yeyan was still indifferent, but what he said shocked Nalan Youhong.
“Yan… are you serious!?” Nalan Youhong’s eyes were full of incredulity.
“What can’t be done by such a prince like me to cheer a beauty up?” Jun Yeyan did not answer Nalan Youhong directly, but these words made Nalan Youhong completely speechless.
Nalan Youhong looked at Jun Yeyan in astonishment. It wasn’t because he didn’t understand the character of Jun Yeyan that he kept asking. It was because he knew him too much about that he could not believe the person in front him was the real Jun Yeyan.
He had seen Jun Yeyan’s cold-bloodedness and indifference. He knew that Jun Yeyan was heartless and careless when Jun Yeyan smiled and walked out from the cave of the bones with a bloody sword at the age of ten. He knew he was a complete demon.
In order to survive, he can be cruel to himself, not to mention others.
Now, he treated Bai Aoxue like this, which made Nalan Youhong doubt. Even if he was called as incompetent trash, Jun Yeyan would never behave like this in the past.
Now Nalan Youhong didn’t know whether it was good or bad for him to do that for Bai Aoxue.
When Nalan Youhong was just about to talk, he suddenly saw a man in black appear in the bamboo forest.
Jun Yeyan looked at the man who knelt on the ground in front of him with one knee: “What is it?” That indifferent tone was entirely different from when he was joking with Nalan Youhong.
“Miss Bai has just gone out and encountered an assassin.” That man in black still knelt on the ground.
When Jun Yeyan heard that Bai Aoxue was attacked, his first reaction was worry. After stabilizing the mind, Jun Yeyan asked indifferently: “How is everything going?”
“Miss Bai is fine. Those assassins actually come from a small organization that is unknown to all in society. Three of them in total were all killed by Miss Bai with one move. Their hirer is Miss Bai’s sister.” The man in black reported seriously.
When Jun Yeyan heard that Bai Aoxue didn’t get hurt, the fear in heart also slowly disappeared. However, once he thought that Bai Suxue employed killers, a fierce light flashed across his eyes.
“Keep following her. Don’t let her get hurt. If she is injured, you won’t need to come back to see me.” Jun Yeyan looked at the man on the ground.
After listening to the words of Jun Yeyan, although he was slightly surprised, he dared not to ask.
“As you wish!” The man replied respectfully.
“I don’t want to hear the existence of that third-rate organization anymore. I only give you two hours.” Jun Yeyan said faintly.
It seemed that they were talking a very common thing. In fact, hundreds of lives would be killed. This was the cold-bloodedness of Jun Yeyan. Hundreds of lives can be killed during a chat.
“Got it! After Miss Bai left, Qi Liange, the prince of Nanyue, appeared. He has been observing Miss Bai in secret.” The man in black said nervously.
In fact, at the beginning, he deliberately ignored this thing, but he did not dare to hide it. He had to say it at the end.
When Jun Yeyan heard his subordinate’s words, he was quite surprised that Qilian Song saw Bai Aoxue and was dominated by unhappiness.
It seemed that his precious item has been peeked, which made the good mood of Jun Yeyan disappear instantly.
“Really? You mean that Qi Liange saw Bai Aoxue kill people?” Jun Yeyan’s voice was as light as ever, while Nalan Youhong and that man all noticed the difference.
Nalan Youhong took a few steps back. That man in black bowed his head and accepted the destiny: “It’s my fault. Please punish me, Your Highness!”
Jun Yeyan looked at the man in front of him and said: “Yan Feng, how many years have you followed me?”
The man named Yan Feng looked up at Jun Yeyan and said: “Responding to Yours Highness, I have followed for you more than seven years.”
From the beginning, when the young Jun Yeyan gave him a meal, he swore that he would follow him with his life. Now, his vow has followed him for seven years.
He never regretted following Jun Yeyan. Jun Yeyan was the belief of these people who risked their lives.
After Jun Yeyan listened to Yan Feng’s words, he smiled faintly and said: “Yan Feng, do you think that I am the kind of person who treats my brother like this just because of such a small thing? I said that I would never take Qi Liange seriously. You don’t need to worry.”
“People always say that Qi Liange’s talent and ability excel the rest. What would happen even if they think so? Do I, Jun Yeyan, need to measure people with worldly vision?” After a pause, Jun Yeyan said aggressively.
After listening to the words of Jun Yeyan, Yan Feng and Nalan Youhong deeply trusted him from the bottom of their hearts.
“Well, you should go to work. Do not let any of them survive. Cut their hands and feet then throw into Bai Suxue’s room as a punishment. No matter who is present in the future, you could show up as long as she is in danger.” Jun Yeyan stared at Yan Feng who was stunned.
After listening to the words of Jun Yeyan, since Yan Feng knew that Jun Yeyan was uncompromising, he quickly left after saluting.
And Nalan Youhong here was shocked by the hidden ability of Bai Aoxue.
A weak woman dealt with three killers just in one move. It cannot be done by some ordinary people.
Jun Yeyan looked at the incredible appearance of Nalan Youhong and pulled out a folded paper from his sleeve: “Remember to help me prepare. I will visit Prime Minister’s mansion tomorrow. You only have one night.”
Instead of caring about Nalan Youhong’s reaction, Jun Yeyan inserted that paper in Nalan Youhong’s hand and turned away.
Nalan Youhong slowly returned to himself only after watching the leave of Jun Yeyan.
When he opened the paper in his hand, Nalan Youhong almost fainted.
Fiercely squeezing with both hands, Nalan Youhong smashed the original neat paper. Nalan Youhong looked around and even didn’t find the shadow of Jun Yeyan.
“Jun Yeyan, you are forcing me to die! You make me prepare so many things for one night. Even a dun is better than you!!” Nalan Youhong hoarsely screamed towards the direction of Jun Yeyan’s departure.
If you listen carefully, you could hear the anger and despair in that voice.
Unfortunately, Jun Yeyan has already left.
And here, in Prime Minister’s mansion, Bai Aoxue was originally reading a book in silence. Hongxiu and Mumian stood aside.
The quiet and peaceful environment was broken by a scream that shook the clouds.
Bai Aoxue frowned slightly. She knew who it was when she listened to that voice.
“What happened to Bai Suxue?” Bai Aoxue asked faintly.
Mumian and Hongxiu looked at each other speechlessly. In fact, they were also very curious.
“Let’s go to see her.” Bai Aoxue put down the book in her hands and gracefully stood up.
Mumian and Hongxiu were waiting for Bai Aoxue to say that. Following Bai Aoxue with excitement, they went to the small courtyard of Bai Suxue.
Looking at those pale servants, Bai Aoxue became more and more confused.
Bai Aoxue couldn’t help but speed up.
When Bai Aoxue heard the vomiting sounds one after another after entering the small courtyard, she frowned with disgust.
“What happened inside?” Mumian hurriedly asked when she saw a pale maidservant running out from the courtyard of Bai Suxue.
The maidservant was originally scared, so she witnessed Bai Aoxue as a savior. She rushed to Bai Aoxue and said: “First Miss! There are many people’s hands and feet there! All hands and feet are piled up in Second Miss’s room like a mountain. A lot of blood!”
Bai Aoxue unexpectedly raised up her eyebrows and looked at the frightened maidservant: “Where is Bai Suxue?”
“She is in the room. We heard her cry and immediately rushed in. We saw a lot of hands and feet, all of which were just cut down. They are bloody.” That maidservant seemed to be remembering, her eyes were out of focus.
Bai Aoxue looked at her and knew that she was terrified since she had never seen such an occasion.
“You could go to rest.” Bai Aoxue faintly told her while walked into the courtyard of Bai Suxue without stopping.
Bai Aoxue saw a large number of attendants searching around when she entered the yard, and a lot of servants who were frightened.
They all respectfully saluted Bai Aoxue.
Bai Aoxue straightly walked into Bai Suxue’s room. She saw the blood in the room meandered like a brook. That rust-like taste stimulated people’s noses.
“Mumian, you stay outside. I will go in with Hongxiu.” Bai Aoxue looked at pale Mumian who was scared by blood.
Mumian also knew that this was not the time to pretend to be strong, so she nodded then quickly walked out of the room.
