WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE - WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE Chapter 58 - Affection Linger in His Mind
When she listened to the words of Jun Yeyan, Bai Aoxue felt the warmth from him. Besides, she looked at Jun Yeyan with less alienation and indifference, which were not discovered by herself.
Perhaps, she gave Jun Yeyan privilege in his silent concern.
How could Jun Yeyan not feel the change of Bai Aoxue? Different feeling welled up within his heart in which happiness took the biggest portion. Yes, that emotion was happiness.
He hasn’t felt happy for years, while those emotions that have left him long ago were all brought back by Bai Aoxue.
“I will be with you tonight. We could eat and drink as casual. It’s better to let Jun Wuhen lower his guard. Besides, those pills must be poisons. I believe that Jun Wuhen will not be stupid to kill us during banquet. At most, he may get some poisons that could control us. Although this is very risky, as long as I have tasted it, I can concoct its antidote no matter what kind of poison it is.” Bai Aoxue said seriously.
Jun Yeyan was a little bit astonished after listening to Bai Aoxue’s words. It was no wonder that he has been smelling a faint scent of medicine from Bai Aoxue. Bai Aoxue even would do such things.
But since Bai Aoxue has never told him, there must be her reasons, and he would not ask more questions.
At least now Bai Aoxue has told him, which showed that she had begun to open her heart to him.
“I will eat it. You can find an excuse that you don’t feel well. Such a dangerous thing only needs to be tried by myself alone.” Jun Yeyan didn’t want Bai Aoxue to take risks.
Bai Aoxue listened to the words of Jun Yeyan and shook her head in disapproval: “Since you trust me, I will go forward and take risks with you. This is my life creed.”
Looking at Bai Aoxue’s insisted appearance, Jun Yeyan found that Bai Aoxue always had her own little persistence which he could not refuse.
“Xue.” He opened his thin lips and said his favorite nickname.
Bai Aoxue didn’t know why Jun Yeyan said so, but she still whispered: “Yes?”
Her sound was weak and light which was like the sound of a mosquito, while her voice was still caught by Jun Yeyan.
“Let me hug you. Suddenly I want that kind of warmth that belongs to me. I think you can give it to me.” Jun Yeyan said with a faint smile, but there was a loneliness in his voice which wasn’t difficult to be heard.
Bai Aoxue was shocked by the desolation of Jun Yeyan. She always believed that Jun Yeyan was the kind of person who would not show his emotions just like her. She would never show her feelings.
For those people like them, emotional exposure was a fatal weakness, but today’s Jun Yeyan actually made Bai Aoxue feel his loneliness. How could this not shock Bai Aoxue?
Bai Aoxue did not answer because of the sudden shock. However, Jun Yeyan turned quickly and took Bai Aoxue into his arms with one hand, holding her back with his slender arm.
Being caught off guard, Bai Aoxue fell into Jun Yeyan’s hug. When she wanted to break away, she stopped struggling when she realized the loneliness of Jun Yeyan and desolation which he gave out.
Bai Aoxue gently felt the breath of Jun Yeyan and the temperature of his head resting on her shoulder.
Jun Yeyan saw that Bai Aoxue did not break away from him, the face under the mask revealed a satisfied smile. Those cold phoenix-like eyes and thin lips all bent out of beautiful arcs.
He was satisfied like a child who was rewarded.
Bai Aoxue’s petite figure has been enveloped in Jun Yeyan’s arms. Bai Aoxue felt a kind of unusual warmth from the hug of Jun Yeyan.
She liked it very much.
“Xue, maybe I should tell you a story one day.” Jun Yeyan’s lonely voice came into Bai Aoxue’s ears.
With less of his intoxicated charm of the past, the sound was more childish and naughty.
Bai Aoxue actually felt that she was detoxicated in Jun Yeyan’s tone like this.
She always knew that Jun Yeyan was mysterious, but she was not curious because everyone had their stories, didn’t they?
Could a good-for-nothing let the next master of Nalan family follow him so faithfully?
Could a good-for-nothing contempt for everything and have such an imposing manner which made people worship?
Could a good-for-nothing have such fascinating and powerful martial arts which were enough to fear none of his opponents?
Only common people could be confused by the illusion, witnessing him as a carp that wanted to jump over the gate. In fact, he was a gold fish scale which was ready to shake the world. One day, he would turn to a dragon.
And Bai Aoxue believed that this day was around the corner!
Both of them cherished this hard-won warmth. This was the warmth with full security that Bai Aoxue has never felt before and for which she exposed her back fearlessly.
Jun Yeyan was enjoying the rare obedience of Bai Aoxue, but he was thinking cunningly that he should play more emotional cards when he got along with Bai Aoxue in the future.
You could see that Bai Aoxue didn’t push him away.
Being caught off guard, Jun Yeyan who was thinking with proud was pushed away by Bai Aoxue. He looked at Bai Aoxue with doubt, while he saw her put the middle finger behind the mouth to warn him to be silent.
Jun Yeyan also found that he did not realize that someone approached because of his distraction.
He also shocked about Bai Aoxue’s vigilance who could be alert to the surroundings while appeased him. It could also be seen that how strong her sense of alertness and self-protection were.
Listening to the footsteps which approached them then leave, neither of them spoke first.
When Jun Yeyan wanted to talk, he was interrupted by the evasively voice of Bai Aoxue.
“It’s getting late and we should go there now. If we arrive after Jun Wuhen, it’s not decent.” Bai Aoxue’s eyes twinkled.
She looked around, which made her more delicate like common girls and approach secular desires.
Jun Yeyan has already pulled back his loneliness and desolation as if they didn’t show up. However, Bai Aoxue knew that just now Jun Yeyan revealed his truest side.
But she also knew that if she wanted to live in such a troubled world, she must learn to how to pretend.
“Let’s go. Just look at how would they run wild.” Jun Yeyan ridiculed.
When Bai Aoxue listened to the words of Jun Yeyan, her mouth quivered. She was speechless about Jun Yeyan’s words, while she also knew that tonight wouldn’t be calm and safe. So, let’s see how these people play tricks!
When Bai Aoxue just moved her forefoot, Jun Yeyan followed her immediately. Bai Aoxue found that Jun Yeyan tended to go in together with her, so she turned to look at Jun Yeyan.
“It’s not good for us to go in together. After all, we haven’t gotten married. Besides, Jun Wuhen will doubt us.”
Bai Aoxue has seen how paranoid Jun Wuhen was. He arranged people to monitor her and call it by the fine-sounding name of serving her. Now he even tried to poison her.
If she and Jun Yeyan were really seen by Jun Wuhen, then he would suspect her more.
Jun Yeyan also saw that Bai Aoxue hesitated, but he disdainfully smiled: “What are you afraid of? What can he doubt? You are mine in the first place. Besides, we enter the palace together, presumably he has already known it now. Don’t forget we are in his territory.”
Bai Aoxue listened and nodded silently. Yes, Jun Wuhen’s eyeliners spread the whole imperial palace. Perhaps they reported him since they appeared at the gate of the city.
And she disappeared with Jun Yeyan, and if they went back separately, they would be more paranoid.
Thinking about this, Bai Aoxue looked at Jun Yeyan and slightly nodded while once she saw glistening Jun Yeyan’s eyes, she embarrassedly bowed her head.
Not knowing out of illusion or a moment of absent-minded, Bai Aoxue actually felt that today’s Jun Yeyan was surprisingly gentle. His eyes actually spoiled her with a trace of sultry love.
Bai Aoxue shook her head in amazement. She definitely saw it wrong. There wouldn’t be any other emotions in Jun Yeyan’s eyes besides sarcasm, indifference and coldness.
Although Bai Aoxue deceived herself, there was indeed a trace of love in Jun Yeyan’s eyes which he didn’t notice.
The relationship between them was changing during their confrontations and appreciation towards others. It was just that they were slow in reacting.
When Bai Aoxue and Jun Yeyan appeared together in the Imperial Garden, it did cause a quite big sensation.
The sharp-eyed little eunuch who was waiting in front of the banquet immediately cleared his throat when he saw Jun Yeyan and Bai Aoxue walking towards them.
“Welcome 5th prince and the first daughter of Bai!”
Everyone didn’t think too much when they heard Jun Yeyan’s name, while everyone had to think about it when they heard Bai Aoxue.
It was already known to all that they have engaged. Many people thought that they were a perfect match, but more official sons were pity for Bai Aoxue.
Although Bai Aoxue was weak, she didn’t go so far as to have a bad reputation, which all should give credit to Su Qianqian’s ability of fabricating and spreading rumors.
Besides, since Bai Aoxue remained low-key and she was not allowed to attend various family feasts by Bai Qiwei, all kinds of rumors and fabrications were getting more and more wild.
Although Bai Aoxue was not pleasing, she indeed had a family background that everyone envied. The fact that she had a father who was Prime Minister and an uncle who was General were enviable.
Marrying Bai Aoxue, who looked like this, was even good just for show. Unfortunately, she was taken over by this useless ugly prince. How could those official sons not feel regret?
If it was once said that they felt pity for the background of Bai Aoxue, their mood could only be described as distressed when they saw her.
“Hiss…” The stunning sounds filled the banquet.
Though Bai Aoxue did not get dressed up delicately, one glance of her made those official sons lose their souls. Only then did everyone genuinely realize what was called glittering.
In fact, Bai Aoxue did not make any movements. She was looking for Ye Zhaojue immediately after she entered the Imperial Garden. She glanced at the surroundings, while she was praised by everyone as glittering.
Jun Yeyan felt unhappy when he saw everyone watching Bai Aoxue like this. He slowly walked in front of Bai Aoxue and blocked the sight of everyone.
“Why is it so quiet? Are you guys satisfy with my little princess?” Jun Yeyan looked at the crowd pleasantly and said slowly.
However, everyone presented was on edge. They felt that the original mild weather was now as piercing as ice.
“Hhh… 5th prince, please don’t blame us! we all see Miss Bai for the first time. Being surprised is inevitable. It is no wonder that Prime Minister Bai has never let Miss Bai show up. She turns out to be such a stunning beauty. If I have a daughter like Miss Bai, I will also keep her from showing up!” A middle-aged man with a big belly looked at Bai Qiwei obscenely.
When Bai Qiwei heard the man mention him, he said awkwardly: “Lord Li over praised her. My daughter always likes to stay alone since childhood, and I cannot bear to bother her, so there is no chance for everyone to her.”
The people present all nodded after listening to Bai Qiwei. After all, Bai Aoxue was really cold and noble, and her eyes did not fall on anybody from beginning to end.
But those who knew the truth couldn’t help scorning Bai Qiwei as cunning.
