WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE - WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE Chapter 63 - Jun Wuhen’s ruse
“Ahahah!” The screams of the women rose in the banquet one after another.
Bai Aoxue couldn’t hear them at all. At this time, she only saw the blood spilling from the corner of Jun Yeyan’s mouth and his body slowly falling to the ground.
Jun Yeyan still smiled when Ye Zhaojue and Nalan Youhong together helped him up. However, his charming phoenix-like eyes were now tightly closed.
Bai Aoxue stood up and wanted to go there and see him, but she knew that she couldn’t do it at least now. If she took this step, Jun Yeyan’s hard work would become useless.
“Jun…” The shouting in the throat made Bai Aoxue feel hurt from the throat to the heart.
Not wanting any other people to notice her abnormality, Bai Aoxue bowed her head and held breath, waiting for the pain of the heart to pass.
And when Jun Wuhen saw that Jun Yeyan was attacked by the poison, he couldn’t restraint his excitement. The time that the poison took effect couldn’t be more appropriate.
Although thinking this in mind, Jun Wuhen still hurriedly got up from the seat and ran towards the direction of Jun Yeyan.
“Brother! Men! Find the imperial physician! Hurry up! Go find the imperial physician! What happened to my brother?” Jun Wuhen shouted himself hoarse.
Looking at Jun Wuhen’s appearance at this time, those people present all felt that Jun Wuhen was a sage emperor who loved his younger brother, while nobody could expect that it was this person who was outwardly kind but inwardly cruel made Jun Yeyan like this!
Glaring at Jun Wuhen, Bai Aoxue swore that she must make Jun Wuhen suffer a thousand times of pain that Jun Yeyan suffered today. She would let Jun Wuhen regret!
Since Jun Yeyan spit blood, the banquet was chaotic. Everyone has forgotten about the outcome of the competition.
And Luoyan wouldn’t request them to announce the results unreasonably. After all, the poisoned person was the husband of Ye Zhaojue’s niece.
Thinking of this, Luoyan turned her head to look at Bai Aoxue who had no action. This was the first time that she looked at Bai Aoxue very carefully.
She found that Bai Aoxue stood in the crowd and bowed her head, making it unable for people to see her expression at this time, while Luoyan could feel her anger. It was a kind of anger with violent temper.
She, who was petite, wore a dazzling red dress with ink hair scattering on the back, and she was so stunning that people couldn’t move their eyes away from her. Luoyan, however, was even more amazed by Bai Aoxue’s forbearance.
Maybe others didn’t feel it, but she was very familiar with such emotions. She could feel the forbearance of Bai Aoxue. She indeed had inquired about the news of Bai Aoxue.
Most of them said that her mother died early, so she was weak and was bullied, but now the appearance of Bai Aoxue was not like that she would be bullied at all. Luoyan has always believed in her instincts.
Not until a group of imperial physicians rushed to here did Luoyan regained her gaze.
“Physician Zhang, come over quickly. What happened to my brother?” Jun Wuhen hurriedly shouted as if he clutched the last straw.
Those imperial physicians dared not delay. They came over and said: “Let His Highness lie down. Standing would make him feel even more painful!”
When Ye Zhaojue and Nalan Youhong listened to him, they immediately put Jun Yeyan down to let imperial physicians check.
The scene was quiet. Physician Zhang carefully took Jun Yeyan’s pulse.
“Reporting to Your Majesty, His Highness is poisoned!” Physician Zhang said to Jun Wuhen in dismay.
“Poison? What kind of poison? Is his life in danger?” Jun Wuhen shouted with emotions.
When Physician Zhang saw that Jun Wuhen worried like this, he hurriedly replied: “Reporting to Your Majesty, I can’t find out what poison it is right now and I still need to prescribe medicine carefully, but there is not life-threatening to His Highness.”
After listening to him, Jun Wuhen immediately shouted: “Useless! Why should I keep you if you can’t tell what kind of poison this is?”
When Physician Zhang heard Jun Wuhen’s words, he was immediately terrified: “Please spare me, Your Majesty! The most urgent task now is to send His Highness back to sleeping quarter and to settle down. The air here is turbid, which is harmful to him!”
Jun Wuhen nodded thoughtfully after listening to Physician Zhang’s words. He said: “Hurry up! Send my brother back to Muxiao Temple! Meng Fei, come over!”
“What is the command, Your Majesty?” Meng Fei saluted respectfully.
Jun Wuhen nodded then said: “You send people to move my brother to Muxiao Temple carefully together with Physician Zhang and his group. Then you will bring all the people that my brother made contact with today to the royal study room. I will question them by myself. Presumably, the poison was put by one of them!”
“As you wish!” After saluting, Meng Fei started to make arrangements.
Bai Aoxue, on the other side, smiled silently after listening to Jun Wuhen’s words.
Jun Wuhen today would definitely choose a scapegoat. The chosen one was really unlucky.
“As for today’s thing, everyone in this room is suspicious. I hope that you won’t leave this place before I find the culprit!” Jun Wuhen looked at Jun Yeyan who was lifted away and said lightly.
And what could they say after Jun Wuhen’s words? They could only remain silent.
“Prince Peerless and Princess Luoyan, as for today’s business, I will definitely set another banquet for you as an apology, and I hope that you can stay here.” Jun Wuhen looked at Qi Liange, who wore a smile, and Luoyan, who was expressionless.
Both Qi Liange and Luoyan knew that today’s business was nothing but a conspiracy. After all, they were not on their own land, so they still tried to avoid disputes with Jun Wuhen. They then nodded to show agreement.
And Jun Wuhen, who found that no one had other opinions, nodded to Eunuch Zhao.
“Set out for Royal study!”
“Wish you a good trip!” The people followed Jun Wuhen with their eyes.
And Bai Aoxue was thinking how to see Jun Yeyan.
“Miss Bai, were you with 5th prince today?” Walking to Bai Aoxue, Meng Fei asked, being neither humble nor haughty.
Bai Aoxue found that everybody around was looking at her as if they were watching a show. She couldn’t help raising up her mouth and said: “I was with 5th prince today, and I won’t embarrass you. I will go with you.”
“So, I am very grateful. Please, Miss Bai.” Meng Fei had a good impression of Bai Aoxue, so he didn’t make thing difficult for her.
Bai Qiwei, who was beside Bai Aoxue, coldly watched her leaving with Meng Fei. He was indifferent as if Bai Aoxue had nothing to do with him.
Only Ye Zhaojue looked at Bai Aoxue in anxiety, but he did not miss the reassuring gaze that Bai Aoxue gave him when she left.
When Bai Aoxue walked by Nalan Youhong, she said with a low voice that only they could hear: “I want some wine in Jun Wuhen’s cup. Try to get some for me.”
After she finished, she left quickly without any flaws.
And when Nalan Youhong listened to the words of Bai Aoxue, he knew that there must be problems in the wine that Jun Wuhen drank. Watching the view of Bai Aoxue’s back, he couldn’t help falling into meditation.
Coming to the royal study room, Bai Aoxue saw someone who bent his back standing in front of the door.
“Miss Bai, His Majesty has been waiting for a long time.” Eunuch Zhao saw Bai Aoxue coming, then he immediately greeted her.
Bai Aoxue looked at the royal study and then looked at Eunuch Zhao. She couldn’t help sighing in mind. Within a few days, she came to the royal study again.
“Eunuch Zhao, you’re too polite.” Bai Aoxue said faintly without a trace of fear or panic.
Eunuch Zhao nodded and said: “Miss Bai, please. His Majesty is waiting inside.”
“His Majesty, Miss Bai has arrived.” Eunuch Zhao respectfully said towards inside.
When Bai Aoxue listened to Eunuch Zhao’s words, she knew that Jun Wuhen just wanted to call her over. He didn’t intend to interrogate her at all.
“Come in.” The sound of Jun Wuhen sounded from inside which interrupted the thought of Bai Aoxue.
Watching Eunuch Zhao open the door, Bai Aoxue walked in and saw Jun Wuhen in front of the desk.
At this time, Jun Wuhen was wiping the statue that was given by Qi Liange at the banquet as if he was wiping a treasure.
Bai Aoxue could not help wondering. Wasn’t this statue sent to his palace? Why did it appear here?
“Are you puzzled? I finally let people move this statue here. After all, I feel that life lacks vigor if I can’t see her. I just want to be with her all the time.” Jun Wuhen looked at the statue with love in eyes.
Looking at the nerveless side of Jun Wuhen, Bai Aoxue did not speak. She was waiting for the next sentence of Jun Wuhen.
“Do you know who this statue is ?” Jun Wuhen touched the slender fingers statue carefully and said.
Bai Aoxue still didn’t talk. Jun Wuhen’s appearance made her feel that he was not quite right in the head. She also believed that even though she didn’t ask, Jun Wuhen would explain to her.
“Let me tell you. This woman, this woman is the mother of 5th brother. The one who abandoned my love but vainly hoped that royal father would love her!” Jun Wuhen looked at Bai Aoxue with crazy eyes.
And Bai Aoxue still looked at him indifferently without shock or disgust.
“So? You let me come over for what? I am not interested in listening to your old stories.” Bai Aoxue said faintly.
Jun Wuhen looked at Bai Aoxue with rounded eyes after listening to her words.
“Hahaha ….” After a while, he laughed like he was crazy.
Looking at Jun Wuhen’s appearance, Bai Aoxue did not say anything.
“You are not interested now, and I hope you will not be interested in the future!” After his laugh, Jun Wuhen looked at Bai Aoxue seriously.
Bai Aoxue did not answer Jun Wuhen. She just watched him without blinking.
“You are curious about how Jun Yeyan get poisoned, aren’t you? The poison is called broken bones on the tenth day. As the name suggests, it will not kill him immediately, but it will attack him every ten days. Every time he would feel so painful that he thought every bone is broken. He will be tortured and feels that dying is better than living.” Jun Wuhen smiled evilly.
“I tell you this today since I want you to know that if you don’t want to feel that pain, it’s best not to have any disagreement. I can let you live and I can also make you die!” Jun Wuhen uttered the latter sentence between clenched teeth.
After listening to Jun Wuhen’s words, Bai Aoxue smiled silently: “So, you also put poison in my cup too?”
Jun Wuhen didn’t say anything, while he tacitly acknowledged.
“If both of us were poisoned, why that poison didn’t take effect on me but him?” Bai Aoxue feigned ignorance.
Jun Wuhen looked at Bai Aoxue as if he was trying to make a hole on Bai Aoxue.
“You don’t need to know that. If you are loyal to me, I won’t let you experience that pain. After a while, you should go to see my brother. And you should ask him by the way, whether his mother gave him something or not. And I will keep the antidote for you. If you don’t get that information, there is no antidote for you at night when the medicine takes effect.” Jun Wuhen laughed.
No longer looking at Bai Aoxue, he continued to wipe the sculpture as if that was his most beloved person.
