WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE - WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE Chapter 53 - Let’s Go Home
The surrounding people shouted excitedly: “Generals is back! Our General returns in triumph!”
People shouted happily and excitedly. It was not difficult to hear from their voice that everyone sincerely respected Ye Zhaojue.
Ye Zhaojue vigorously jumped off the horseback. The crowd automatically gave the way for him.
Ye Zhaojue walked quickly to Jun Wuhen with one knee kneeling down: “I, Ye Zhaojue, pay respect to Your Majesty!”
Jun Wuhen immediately stepped forward and handed Ye Zhaojue. He said: “General Ye, you’re dispensing with politeness. I’m really moving to see all the trouble you’ve taken!”
Ye Zhaojue got up and stood beside Jun Wuhen: “Your Majesty over admired me. It’s my honor to serve for Chengxi! And I could take all the bitterness and adversity with a smile!”
The people around Ye Zhaojue were all moved and even worshipped him more after listening to his words.
“I’m very pleased that you can think so! Ye General, thank you for all the tough work. Today, you should enter the palace together with me. I’ve prepared a banquet to welcome you!” Jun Wuhen looked at Ye Zhaojue and said with satisfaction.
After hearing the words of Jun Wuhen, Ye Zhaojue frowned slightly and said: “Responding to Your Majesty, I haven’t been back for years and I miss my niece very much. Please allow me to see her first.”
Jun Wuhen understood from Ye Zhaojue’s words that he loved Bai Aoxue very much. He certainly knew that Bai Aoxue was going to get married, so he didn’t stop him.
“Well, General Ye, you could go. You should come to the banquet tonight together with Miss Bai.” Jun Wuhen said considerately.
“Thank you, Your Majesty! The ambassador of Mobei is coming together with me this time. Steward Bai, please arrange accommodations for them!” Ye Zhaojue faintly looked at Bai Qiwei who stood behind Jun Wuhen.
Jun Wuhen forgot the ambassador of Mobei for a moment because of the return of Ye Zhaojue. He said in a hurry: “Oh, my poor memory! Don’t worry, General Ye. I will tell them to arrange!”
“So, please forgive my retreat!” Ye Zhaojue left after saluting to Jun Wuhen.
Everyone saw Ye Zhaojue go to a corner. They made way for him, but no one left.
Their eyes were closely following Ye Zhaojue only because Ye Zhaojue was the unbeaten god of war in Chengxi Dynasty. A man who was admired by everyone!
Bai Aoxue, who was standing at the corner, looked at Ye Zhaojue who stepped toward her. She slowly retreated instead of being indifferent and cold like she used to be.
Mumian who stood beside her also found the abnormality of Bai Aoxue. She stretched out her hand and grasped that of Bai Aoxue: “Miss, that is your uncle!”
Bai Aoxue looked at Mumian with surprise, while saw that Mumian looked at her firmly. This kind of gaze made Bai Aoxue, who was originally anxious and restless, calm down a lot.
“Thank you, Mumian!” Bai Aoxue gripped Mumian’s hand.
Taking a deep breath, Bai Aoxue stopped retreating. There were less anxiety and irritability in her eyes. Raising her head, she looked at Ye Zhaojue who came to her with vigorous strides.
Only then did those people notice the beautiful image that has been standing in the corner.
“Who is that?” The people were puzzled and whispered.
They looked at Bai Aoxue with scrutiny, doubts and envy.
“You are stupid! That is the niece of General Ye! She is Bai Aoxue, the first daughter of Prime Minister!” A person who has seen Bai Aoxue said so.
And everyone found that the first daughter of Prime Minister who remained low-key had unrivalled beauty. Her atmosphere which was emitted from the inside was also comparable to that of Ye Zhaojue.
Bai Aoxue didn’t care about these gazes. At this time, she was a girl who saw her relative. Her happiness, grievance and admire were tangled together.
“What a virtuous beautiful young lady! I really didn’t see her wrong!” The man who stood on the restaurant appreciatively looked at Bai Aoxue, while the cinnabar mole in the middle of his eyebrows exposed his identity.
This person was not someone else but the Peerless Prince who was praised by Nanyue’s people—Qi Liange!
Suxiao stood beside him. The stunning his eyes flashed away. That day in the dark alley, they didn’t see the appearance of Bai Aoxue.
However, they saw her during daytime today. Standing in the crowd with a red dress, Bai Aoxue was so dazzling that people were reluctant to move their eyes from her.
Suxiao had to admire his master’s eye for beauty.
Looking at his niece in front of him, Ye Zhaojue felt that she was different from what she used to be.
Those deer-like eyes have disappeared which were now replaced by stubbornness and arrogance. She was no longer weak and craven. Instead, she was so cold which could freeze people.
Now she was like a star, making the place where she stood shining and letting people want to approach her involuntarily, even though she was cold.
Looking at Ye Zhaojue in front of her, Bai Aoxue didn’t know what to say.
However, approaching Bai Aoxue, Ye Zhaojue slowly reached out his hand and gently stroked Bai Aoxue’s head like he used to. That was a warm and intimate move.
“Aoxue, your uncle is back.” Ye Zhaojue’s original cold face became so gentle that everyone’s eyes popped with surprise.
However, Bai Aoxue was going to tear because of Ye Zhaojue’s move.
She was a person who never knew what affection of family was. She lived in deception and fraud and intention of surviving. Such a life made Bai Aoxue dare not to demand affection between blood relationships excessively both this life and the life in the preceding world.
However, Ye Zhaojue’s seemingly random movement opened Bai Aoxue’s heart which she guarded such a long time.
This was her long-awaited family relationship which was never out of reach and vulnerable. It appeared in front of her virtually. She could feel Ye Zhaojue’s concern.
She could feel Ye Zhaojue’s broad and strong palm. She could also feel that Ye Zhaojue built a small harbor for her.
Bai Aoxue has never shed tears. Whether encountered irresponsible life of vagrancy or killed people for one mantou or undergone various cruel training after she was adopted by the organization, she never cried.
However, such a small warm behavior still let Bai Aoxue shed tears.
Bai Aoxue still did not think that she would cry since she tried so hard to held tears back.
“Uncle….” Bai Aoxue looked up. She wanted to see Ye Zhaojue, but the tears blurred her gaze.
Ye Zhaojue looked at Bai Aoxue, who choked like a kitten, only feeling pain. Bai Aoxue was his only relative in this world and also was his most loved kid.
When Ye Zhaojue heard the repressed cry of Bai Aoxue, he only felt that his heart was stuck by a needle.
“Aoxue, I am back, and I will not leave in the future. I won’t allow anyone bully you again!” Ye Zhaojue gently wiped the tears of Bai Aoxue and said softly.
And when Mumian, who stood aside, saw Bai Aoxue crying, she couldn’t believe what she saw then she also started to sob.
Since Bai Aoxue woke up, Mumian only found that she was strong, unyielding, deceitful and cruel, but now Bai Aoxue made Mumian feel sad for her. She almost forgot that Bai Aoxue was also a child who needed love from her family.
In the distance, when Jun Yeyan just wanted to leave, he saw the tears falling down from Bai Aoxue’s cheeks. He was suddenly stunned and then clenched his hands and released. His eyebrows entangled together.
That was a side of Bai Aoxue whom he has never seen before. That was the real Bai Aoxue whom he wanted to hold in his arms and loved.
Bai Aoxue raised her hand and wiped the tears forcefully: “Look at me! You just come back today. I should be happy. How can I cry?!”
Ye Zhaojue looked at Bai Aoxue who behaved like this and sighed: “You don’t need to pretend to be an adult in front of your uncle! Our Aoxue just need to be happy. I will shoulder everything for you!”
When Bai Aoxue listened to Ye Zhaojue’s words, she only felt her nose twitched. She held back her tears and said: “Uncle, I have grown up!”
Ye Zhaojue laughed straightforwardly after hearing Bai Aoxue: “Yes, our Aoxue has grown up, and she would still cry when she sees her uncle!”
“Uncle!” Bai Aoxue listened to Ye Zhaojue’s jokes and pretended to be angry.
“Boss, is she the little niece! She is unexpectedly beautiful! But boss, shouldn’t we go home first? There are many people here!” An uncle with whiskers interjected.
Bai Aoxue looked up and saw that they were indeed witnessed by many people. The most important thing was that some emotional people even cried with them.
Bai Aoxue has never felt so embarrassed. She hurriedly pulled Ye Zhaojue and said: “Let’s go home, uncle!”
Ye Zhaojue was visibly moved when Bai Aoxue said those two word “go home”. He originally waited for his sister to tell him go home for so many years, while he only waited for her bones instead of his sister.
He has actually waited for so many years for his niece to say go home to him.
Now, this tough man had tears in his eyes just because of two words of Bai Aoxue.
“Sure! Let’s go home! Go home now!” Ye Zhaojue shook his head and said.
Bai Aoxue knew that Ye Zhaojue loved her as if she was put on his palm. She also knew that this kind of family relationship was a luxury for many people. Now since it was given to her, she would definitely cherish it!
At this time, Bai Aoxue discovered that Ye Zhaojue was followed by his soldiers.
They were all passionate young man who defended the country, while shed tears because Ye Zhaojue’s excitement.
“Little niece! You don’t know that boss was worried about you most when we were in Mobei. Boss would write a letter to arrange his inheritance every time before we marched to the battlefield. He was afraid that if he had sacrificed on the battlefield, you would have no relatives in this world.” Uncle whiskers’ eyes flashed with tears.
After listening to the words of uncle whiskers, Bai Aoxue felt that the softest place of her heart was pinched forcefully by someone. That pain was excruciating.
“Boss mentioned you a lot. He said that you are sensible and lovable. Every time he came back from the battlefield, he would say that ‘I’m glad that I’m alive, so I can see Aoxue’. Every time I heard those words, I was particularly sad. Little niece, you really have a good uncle!” Uncle whiskers slowly said.
And Bai Aoxue listened to these words, only felt that her nose was particularly sour, and her eyes were blurred with tears. Her body could not stop shaking. This was her uncle who was worried about her most in this world.
“Uncle…, thanks for telling me this. My uncle is my only relative and my most cherished family in this world!” Looking at uncle whiskers, Bai Aoxue said with gratitude.
When Ye Zhaojue saw the two people whispering, he knew what his soldier was saying. He then frowned slightly: “Xingzhi, what are you talking about! Go to get the horse!”
The uncle named Xingzhi laughed and said: “I didn’t say anything! Why would I say things? I just said that the little niece is so beautiful!” He then went to get the horse swiftly.
Looking at uncle Xingzhi who was leaving, Bai Aoxue smiled.
“Hey, let’s go home!” Bai Aoxue smiled at Ye Zhaojue, while that smile captivated many.
Just when Ye Zhaojue just wanted to nod, a delicate and clear voice sounded.
“Ye Zhaojue! Do you want to leave me here??”
