WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE - WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE Chapter 55 - In Gathering, Waves surged Forward Dramatically
“Uncle, thank you. No matter what kind of person I will be in the future, I will always respect and cherish you the most!” Bai Aoxue looked at Ye Zhaojue seriously.
No one understood the meaning of her words, but Ye Zhaojue faintly felt that what Bai Aoxue said were not simple.
But Bai Aoxue was his niece and his most cherished relative. He believed in her.
“The little girl has grown up. Let’s go. It’s time to go to the palace!” Ye Zhaojue looked at Bai Aoxue in front of him who was still very young but pretended to be mature.
“Ok! Uncle, since today you are the leading role, we should enter the palace earlier.” Bai Aoxue nodded.
When Bai Aoxue got up, there was a guard who crawled his way into the front hall.
“Reporting to General, an unruly woman is creating a disturbance outside of mansion. She claims to be the Princess of Mobei and let you go out!” The attendant looked at Ye Zhaojue anxiously.
After listening to that attendant’s words, Bai Aoxue unexpectedly raised up her eyebrows. She did not think that this Mobei princess would chase her uncle to here. It seemed that something must have happened between her and uncle.
“Boss, what’s wrong with this woman? She chased you from Mobei to here!” Xingzhi looked at Ye Zhaojue with puzzle, while there was some gloating in the words.
Everyone had different expressions. They all looked at Ye Zhaojue weirdly.
“Uncle, what’s the matter?” Bai Aoxue also felt that this thing seemed not to be so simple, which could see through the look of Xingzhi.
Ye Zhaojue restlessly rubbed his brow: “Aoxue, I will explain this thing to you later. Now, we should go to the palace.”
Bai Aoxue saw that Ye Zhaojue didn’t want to say more, so she didn’t question him.
Seeing Xingzhi, who stood aside, made eyes at her, Bai Aoxue could not help laughing.
Following Ye Zhaojue out of the front hall, Bai Aoxue and others have already heard that sweet but unruly voice before they reached the gate.
“Ye Zhaojue, go out! Do you think everything will be fine if you keep hiding?!” If people listened carefully, they would hear that she spoke in a sobbing tone.
Bai Aoxue saw Ye Zhaojue frowning, and he quickened his pace.
When Bai Aoxue and others went out of General’s mansion, they saw a woman dressed in a foreign costume, riding a horse and looking anxiously at the gate.
Bai Aoxue observed the woman’s face. She seemed to be older than she was. She was not tender and delicate like most of the princesses or official ladies.
To a large extent, she was casual and free-spirited emitting from the inside.
Being lack of young and tender, her cute face was sturdier. She was an expert of riding, which could be seen from her riding position. After all, people in Mobei grew up on horsebacks.
“Miss, their costumes are so beautiful!” Mumian quietly approached Bai Aoxue and said.
Bai Aoxue nodded after hearing that. The custom of Mobei were really beautiful and unlike those in Chengxi which would trip people if they walked carelessly.
A few small silver bells on her waist showed her open mind and enthusiasm. Her hair was combed by a jewel which represented her princess status, making her clever and unrestrained.
The princess named Luoyan saw Ye Zhaojue out and quickly dismounted from her horse.
“Ye Zhaojue, you finally came out! I thought you were going to be a coward!” Luoyan quickly walked to Ye Zhaojue and said sweetly with her hands putting on her hips.
When the words fell, she also pouted angrily which seemed super cute.
“Princess Luoyan, don’t you should rest at post house now? Why do you come here?” Ye Zhaojue slightly frowned and said indifferent.
When Luoyan heard Ye Zhaojue’s direct questioning, on the contrary, she didn’t know how to react.
Although the people of Mobei were all cheerful and not care about trifles, Ye Zhaojue’s direct questioning has really made Luoyan lower her head awkwardly.
Ye Zhaojue saw that Luoyan did not reply, and then he said faintly: “I will set people to send Princess Luoyan back to the post house to rest. There is a banquet tonight.”
When Luoyan heard that Zhaojue was going to set someone to send her back, she immediately raised her head and looked at Ye Zhaojue with shock: “You know why I am here. Ye Zhaojue, you don’t have to pretend that you don’t know. Don’t I come here for you?”
After Luoyan finished, she found that her voice was a little bit loud because excitement. All passers-by looked at her simultaneously.
Ye Zhaojue looked at the people around calmly, then those people know how to behave in this delicate situation and scattered.
“Your Highness, if you need to see me, you could let the ambassador send me the letter. I will indeed go to greet you. However, princess, your rash behavior would affect your reputation.” When Ye Zhaojue saw the grieved appearance of Luoyan, he couldn’t help softening his tone.
“My reputation? Hum! Hasn’t my reputation already been ruined by you long ago? Do you say so because you don’t want to take responsibility?!” Luoyan did not calm down because of Ye Zhaojue’s soft tone. Instead, she kept questioning.
Those people, who stood behind and watched the show, were all choked with laughter, which made their face red when they heard Luoyan’s words.
Bai Aoxue only felt shocked when she heard the words of Luoyan, since she believed that Ye Zhaojue was not such a person. There must be some misunderstanding.
“Princess, you are ruining your reputation by saying so. An honest person fears no gossip. I had no choice but to take you away that day and I have already gone to imperial palace and apologized. The emperor of Mobei has already forgiven me. Why does princess keep being overbearing?” Hearing Luoyan say so, Ye Zhaojue frowned.
It could also be seen that Ye Zhaojue’s limited patience was going to drain.
And Bai Aoxue also uncovered the ins and outs of this affair from Ye Zhaojue’s words.
While Luoyan listened to Ye Zhaojue’s words, she felt incredible and looked at Ye Zhaojue sadly.
“Ye Zhaojue, I’m blind to see you as man who is upright and never stopping to flattery! Bah!” Luoyan glared at Ye Zhaojue angrily. After she finished, she quickly mounted the horse and drove away.
Only Ye Zhaojue who was puzzled and a group of people who couldn’t help laughing were left under the flying dust.
Bai Aoxue looked at Ye Zhaojue who has not figured out the situation. She only felt that her uncle’s EQ was extremely low.
Mobei was a country which had simple folk customs and admired force.
Men and women of Mobei were all good at fighting on horsebacks. Those women didn’t like those of Chengxi and Nanyue who just understood sewing or stayed at boudoirs quietly. They could also fight and conquer their enemy on the battlefield like men.
But Mobei had an unwritten rule. If a woman on the battlefield was taken away by the enemy, the woman belonged to that man no matter what.
And there was no exception including the royal family!
Bai Aoxue learned these all from the whole history of Great Continent.
Now although Ye Zhaojue apologized after he took Luoyan away, Luoyan has already belonged to him no matter what his purpose was. This was the fact that the people of Mobei have recognized.
And Bai Aoxue looked at the appearance of Ye Zhaojue and figured out that he didn’t know such a rule.
Bai Aoxue could also see the admiration for Ye Zhaojue from the eyes of Luoyan. Otherwise, as a princess, even if she didn’t obey such a rule, no one dared to say anything.
However, Luoyan must admire Ye Zhaojue, and the emperor of Mobei probably also valued Ye Zhaojue, so he agreed that Luoyan followed Ye Zhaojue to Chengxi.
The united marriage of Mobei this time probably would disappoint everyone. There may be many official gentlemen who dressed up meticulously and waited to be noticed by Luoyan.
Thinking about this, Bai Aoxue looked at Ye Zhaojue and felt embarrassed. Whether or not should she tell such a message to Ye Zhaojue?
After all, she also wanted to see a good show of her own uncle!
Just as Bai Aoxue was thinking, she felt that someone beside her was pulling her sleeves.
Bai Aoxue turned her head and saw Xingzhi pulling her sleeves and shaking head in a funny way.
Looking at Xingzhi like this, Bai Aoxue also understood the idea of Xingzhi. Perhaps everyone knew this thing, but they hid the truth from Ye Zhaojue.
Bai Aoxue sympathetically glanced at her uncle. She patted Ye Zhaojue’s shoulder in old manner and said: “Uncle, I am standing on your side!”
“Hm, I know!” Although Ye Zhaojue didn’t understand what it was, he was still touched then replied.
“Let’s go! Go into the palace!” Feeling bored, Ye Zhaojue swept away the crying face of Luoyan when she left from his mind, striding forward and mounting the horse.
Bai Aoxue walked to the front of the carriage and said: “Uncle Xingzhi, can you share the carriage with me and tell me about the scenery of Mobei? I want to hear it so much.”
After listening, Xingzhi’s eyes shone: “Of course! I can talk three days about the scenery in Mobei!” After that, he quickly entered the carriage and did not give Ye Zhaojue a time to refuse.
Looking at Xingzhi and Bai Aoxue, Ye Zhaojue shook his head and felt funny, but he did not say much.
“Uncle Xingzhi, why don’t you tell my uncle the rule of Mobei?” Bai Aoxue asked as soon as Xingzhi entered the carriage.
Xingzhi looked at Bai Aoxue who was interested: “Little niece, you see, boss is not young any more, but he still hasn’t get married. We are very worried about him!”
Bai Aoxue listened to the words of Xingzhi and nodded in agreement.
“We found that this Princess of Mobei is a straightforward person unlike those women who just stayed in their boudoirs. Such a woman is the best for boss, so we also want to set them up. He also needs a woman to take care of him.” Xingzhi signed.
Bai Aoxue agreed with the idea of Xingzhi. However, what would happen if Ye Zhaojue didn’t like Luoyan?
“What if my uncle doesn’t like her?” Bai Aoxue asked in confusion.
“You can rest assured that this. I think that boss appreciates Luoyan very much. That girl Luoyan fought several times with us. She is talented, so boss cherishes her. There will always be feelings between them!” Xingzhi said with a sinister smile on his face. After that, he also looked at Bai Aoxue with a “you know” look.
Bai Aoxue looked at the appearance of Xingzhi, and her mouth shivered, but she also agreed with the idea of Xingzhi. Feelings still needed to be developed slowly.
“Aoxue, Xingzhi, come down. We arrive at imperial palace and we need to walk in.” Ye Zhaojue’s voice suddenly passed into their ears, which shocked both of them.
They look at each other with surprise and prayed in their hearts that Ye Zhaojue didn’t hear their conversation.
After calming down, Bai Aoxue slowly walked out of the carriage, and she then heard a seductive male voice. Yes, the voice was indeed seductive! Although using seductive to describe a man’s tone was inappropriate, while this male voice was an exception.
“General Ye, I’ve been looking forward to meeting you for a long time!”
Bai Aoxue slowly turned her head along the source of the sound.
