WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE - WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE Chapter 61 - Displaying Charm and Being United Through
Bai Aoxue nodded towards Cangsheng without letting people notice.
Seeing Bai Aoxue understand his meaning, Cangsheng was relieved.
In fact, even he didn’t understand why he was risking his life to help Bai Aoxue. However, when he thought that on one warm and sunny day, a girl in red dress said that still water run deep and songs accompany with sea and Sheng, he didn’t want her to be in danger.
In such a cold palace, there could be such a fire-like girl who gave him a trace of warmth. Although he could lose his life, he wanted to protect her.
And he also knew that a woman like Bai Aoxue deserved him to give everything.
“Today, General Ye returned triumphantly, which make us extremely happy. Now everybody joins me in a toast to millions of brothers and passionate men of Chengxi!” Jun Wuhen’s high-pitched voice echoed in the Imperial Garden.
He also made Cangsheng come back from his thoughts.
Jun Wuhen’s words warmed up the atmosphere that was originally lively. All the men and women present all raised their glasses.
“I toast to those men who built and protect Chengxi!” Jun Wuhen raised the glass. Raising his head, he drank the wine in the glass straightly.
And Jun Wuhen’s movement made all officials follow him.
“His Majesty is right! Let’s drink it!” Bai Qiwei also appealed to the public.
Bai Aoxue glanced at Bai Qiwei disdainfully, while her eyes kept watching Jun Yeyan.
She then saw that Jun Yeyan faintly smiled: “Your Majesty is reasonable. Although I don’t understand how to kill people in the battlefield, I do admire General Ye. General Ye and I will soon become a family. Today, I will drink this glass of wine first! At our wedding, I will indeed serve a glass of wine to uncle!”
When everyone listened to the words of Jun Yeyan, they only thought that this good-for-nothing prince seemed to be different from the past, while they could not distinguish what it was.
After Bai Aoxue listened to the words of Jun Yeyan, instead of being angry, she suddenly thought that glass of wine of Jun Yeyan was poisonous. Or should she say that the whole pot of wine was poisonous.
Although Bai Aoxue knew that Jun Wuhen wouldn’t let people spot a weak point from that Jun Yeyan was poisoned at the banquet, she was still worried. This kind of worry was the emotion she has never had before.
Then she saw Jun Yeyan quickly drank the glass of wine after speaking. Bai Aoxue had her heart in her mouth all of a sudden.
Jun Wuhen was also nervous. This was the occasion that he was waiting for.
Jun Wuhen’s hanging heart wasn’t put down until Jun Yeyan drank the wine. The smile on the corner of his mouth was getting more obvious. As soon as he thought that Jun Yeyan was tortured, he felt good.
When Bai Aoxue saw Jun Yeyan didn’t have adverse reaction, she slightly calmed down.
At this time, Bai Qiwei, who sat beside Bai Aoxue, sneered fiercely.
The reason why Bai Qiwei behaved like this was easy to guess. Jun Yeyan didn’t mention him just now, which apparently embarrassed him. How could he not be angry?
Bai Aoxue didn’t in the mood to argue with Bai Qiwei. She watched Jun Yeyan nervously. Bai Aoxue did not find out that Jun Yeyan has already taken up half of the scenery in her eyes somehow.
When Jun Yeyan looked up, he saw the nervous appearance of Bai Aoxue, and the pond in his heart began to ripple again, letting his calm mind moving restlessly.
Bai Aoxue saw Jun Yeyan also looking at her. Opening her rosy lips, she just wanted to talk, while found that it was not the appropriate occasion. She could only look at Jun Yeyan silently.
“Reassured, I’m fine.” With the breeze, a short sentence wafted to Bai Aoxue’s ear, which was enough to make her feel at ease. Bai Aoxue knew that it was the sound of Jun Yeyan.
At this time, everyone toasted to Ye Zhaojue. Bai Aoxue also picked up the glass. The air was filled with a touch of wine.
Just when Bai Aoxue picked up the glass, she already felt a few gazes.
Paying no attention to them, she raised up her mouth and smiled. Bai Aoxue sniffed the wine as she drank it.
Within seconds, Bai Aoxue already knew the ingredients of the poison in the wine. She drank them all straightforwardly then put the glass on the table.
Jun Wuhen finally nodded with satisfaction. After all, both of them drank the wine under his observation, so that he had nothing to worry about.
Looking at Jun Wuhen’s satisfactory appearance, Bai Aoxue disdainfully sneered. She thought in mind: Jun Wuhen might never expect that the poison he ordered people to put could be detoxified in just a few minutes. If he wanted to threaten them with antidotes, he probably would be disappointed.
Looking at Jun Yeyan who was also worried, her mood suddenly changed. She felt a little bit sour and a little bit sweet, while this feeling was not bad.
Bai Aoxue blinked toward Jun Yeyan sweetly. Originally, she wanted to tell Jun Yeyan that she was fine, but Bai Aoxue didn’t know that her cheerful appearance is another kind of amorous feelings in someone else’s eyes.
She, who has always been glamorous and noble, swept away the image of the past. Now she was clever and lively. Besides, she was surrounded by flowers in full blossom, which made people think that she was a fairy of flower.
Jun Yeyan was thinking like this. He now had an impulse of hiding Bai Aoxue from being peeked by anyone else.
He knew that such an impulse was not unreasonable. He wanted to do so long ago, but he has always resisted it.
But today he found that such an impulse has become stronger which was serious enough to prompt him to act.
Taking a breath, Jun Yeyan suppressed the thoughts in his heart. He no longer looked at Bai Aoxue in chase of calmness in mind.
When Cangsheng saw Bai Aoxue drink the wine, he was desperate instantly. He did not understand why Bai Aoxue would to do this, but he felt that she didn’t care of her life.
That wine was obviously poisonous, but she still drank it. He thought that Bai Aoxue should not be like this.
Thinking about this, he lost his footing then and staggered. Eunuch Zhao, who was around him, saw his abnormality. He quickly handed him: “What is it? We are in a banquet now!”
After being warned by Eunuch Zhao, he also came back to himself and stood up straightly. He then said: “Nothing. I was just a little dizzy. Thanks for your concern, Eunuch Zhao.”
When Eunuch Zhao saw his pale face, he thought that he was exhausted because of the banquet, so he whispered: “If you are particularly tired, you can go to rest now. I could arrange you to other place.”
Cangsheng looked at Eunuch Zhao with gratitude: “Please don’t worried about me. I can stick to it.”
Seeing that he insists, Eunuch Zhao appreciated him even more. He nodded and said: “Fine. It’s better to stick to it if you still could, but if you’re really tired, you can tell me secretly.”
“Thank you for your concern, Eunuch Zhao.” Cangsheng whispered.
And Jun Wuhen, who was happy now, didn’t notice the abnormality.
Bai Aoxue was sitting on the seat boringly. The banquet was indeed as what was in TV series. Everyone was hypocritical. After roosting, it was the time for the ladies to perform.
They competed talents and appearances in order to achieve that position.
The idea of an ancient woman was actually the same as that of a modern woman. They all hoped that they could become a phoenix one day.
However, Bai Aoxue did not expect that Liu Manyun, who was stupid, began to show her stupid skill of making a mess.
“Your Majesty, since today is so lively, I think it is really boring if there are no singing and dancing shows.” Liu Manyun looked at Jun Wuhen tenderly.
When Jun Wuhen heard Liu Manyun’s words, he really felt it reasonable. He said: “My love is reasonable. Well, I have an idea. All the ladies present here can show their talents. I will grant a good marriage to the winner.”
After listening to Jun Wuhen, the women present were all excited and whispered, while Bai Aoxue felt disdainful about Jun Wuhen’s words. This was clearly equivalent to a blind date.
Bai Aoxue only felt that the people around her now had a heavier breath. When she turned around, she saw that Bai Suxue was staring at Qi Liange.
Bai Aoxue couldn’t help sighing for Qi Liange, and she was also amazed about Bai Suxue’s speed of changing the object.
But no one thought that there came a little interlude at this time.
“I’d like to ask Lord Chengxi, do those women present also include Luoyan?” The clear voice of Princess Luoyan also quieted the surroundings.
Everyone didn’t know what Luoyan’s purpose was. They couldn’t help looking at Jun Wuhen.
However, Jun Wuhen just smiled and said: “I am talking about all women. Of course, Princess Luoyan is included.”
When Luoyan listened to his words, she smiled, which was rare. She said: “Can I choose my own husband if I am fortunate enough to win?”
After listening to Luoyan’s words, some people felt excited, while some people were scornful about her or envied her.
Jun Wuhen still smiled: “If you win, you can choose your husband. There will be no objection.”
Perhaps Jun Wuhen was sure that Luoyan would choose him. After all, every woman in the world wanted to become his concubine.
But the next sentence of Luoyan beat the confidence of Jun Wuhen to the bottom of his heart.
“I trust you, Lord Chengxi. If you keep your promise, I will do my best to win. If I win, please grant a marriage to me and General Ye Zhaojue!” Luoyan said fearlessly, but her words shocked everyone present.
Bai Aoxue had already known what Luoyan was going to say when Luoyan made the arrangement with Jun Wuhen, but Bai Aoxue still laughed when she heard Luoyan’s words. It was Luoyan’s destiny to marry Ye Zhaojue.
Ye Zhaojue was indifferent by nature, but he treated his loved ones with his heart. Presumably after he fell in love with a person, he would keep her company for the rest of his life.
A woman like Luoyan was passionate like fire. She was also bold and unpretentious. It was hard for people to dislike her. If she could marry Ye Zhaojue, the collision of ice and fire would indeed produce different sparks.
Bai Aoxue sincerely hoped that they could be together. Although her uncle couldn’t act first, it would come out the same way if Luoyan made the first move. They would walk those remaining ninety-nine steps together.
After Jun Wuhen listened to Luoyan’s words, the stiff smile on his face was particularly ridiculous. He was shocked and stunned.
Those people present all had their own opinions after listening to Luoyan’s words. Some of them admired Luoyan, while some of them disdained her.
But she did not care about them. Bai Aoxue looked at Luoyan who stood uprightly then looked at her uncle who was in a daze. She smiled secretly.
Luoyan seemed to be unable to hear what those people around were talking about. She looked at Jun Wuhen without blinking.
Jun Wuhen, who just came back to himself from shock, looked at Luoyan angrily. There was raging fire in his eyes. He tried to resist his resentment and said: “What did you say just now, Princess Luoyan? I didn’t hear it clearly.”
