WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE - WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE Chapter 67 - The Past Has Faded Like a Puff of Smoke
Looking through the window cautiously, Bai Aoxue saw a tall figure which was surprisingly weak under the bright moonlight.
He put his hand on the window and leaned on the relief wooden ledge. The original scarlet bloodthirsty eyes were now as deep as lakes.
Bai Aoxue resisted the overwhelming pain which seemed to swallow her and looked at Jun Yeyan as if nothing has happened. She then asked: “What are you doing here? Do you know the consequences if Jun Wuhen notices that you are not there?!”
Although Bai Aoxue tried her best to tolerate, her tone was a little bit shake due to pain.
Jun Yeyan, who sat on the edge of the window ledge, looked at Bai Aoxue who was calm and restrained. There was an impulse to hold her into his arms.
This impulse came so fast that his body acted first before his head responded.
Jun Yeyan leaped gently, as if there was a transparent arch bridge between him and Bai Aoxue. After jumping in the air, he quickly came to Bai Aoxue’s side.
Before Bai Aoxue made any response, he already held Bai Aoxue, who was petite, into his arms.
Somehow, when he looked at Bai Aoxue who curled herself in the corner of the bed, he lost his mind. He only felt that such a petite person should be cherished.
Only by holding her in his arms could he stopping thinking that Bai Aoxue would leave at any time.
Jun Yeyan embraced Bai Aoxue tightly as if he was afraid that Bai Aoxue would disappear. He felt that her body was stiff for one fleeting moment. He felt that she was shaking due to pain.
In the chest, there was some unprecedented satisfaction and peace. He knew that they came from the person in his arms.
However, Bai Aoxue was stunned because of a series actions of Jun Yeyan. She did not expect that Jun Yeyan would do so…
It was undeniable that she was in love with this embrace that made her feel warm. Even the piercing pain was not important because of this embrace.
This burning warm went into her flesh. She didn’t want to leave.
Bai Aoxue let herself leaning on the chest of Jun Yeyan, feeling his strength and his strong heartbeats.
“Rat-rat…” His heartbeats were sounding near her ears. They were unceasing just like his life. This was the first time that Bai Aoxue was so close to a life.
Listening to his heartbeats, she felt at ease. Bai Aoxue slowly closed her eyes and felt the silence of this moment.
Looking at Bai Aoxue who was so obedient, Jun Yeyan smiled, but he did not forget that Bai Aoxue was shaking.
“Xue, eat this. You will be fine after eating this.” Jun Yeyan put a creamy pill aside Bai Aoxue’s mouth, waiting for her to eat.
Bai Aoxue immediately knew what it was after she smelt it. She shook her head gently: “Why didn’t you eat it?”
After hearing the words of Bai Aoxue, Jun Yeyan smiled lightly: “I’m waiting for you to detoxify me, so I don’t want to eat it.”
When Bai Aoxue heard his words, she knew that Jun Yeyan said this because he wanted her to eat it. She was uncomfortable and happy at the same time.
“Those poisons has already set your body in a mess. Now even a little bit of poison would kill you!” Bai Aoxue looked at Jun Yeyan seriously.
Looking at Bai Aoxue’s serious face, Jun Yeyan said with a smile: “I’m tough. You don’t need to worry about me, and you can detoxify me only if you are healthy.”
“You…” When Bai Aoxue was just about to speak, Jun Yeyan put the pill into her mouth one step ahead of her.
The pill that immediately melted in her mouth made it impossible for Bai Aoxue to spit it out. She glared at Jun Yeyan with resentment.
“Jun Yeyan, if I don’t save you, you will have a big loss.” Bai Aoxue made fun of Jun Yeyan.
When Jun Yeyan heard the words of Bai Aoxue, he smiled lightly: “Even so, I want you to be out of pain.”
When Bai Aoxue, who was annoyed at the first place, listened to the words of Jun Yeyan, she was stunned. She knew that Jun Yeyan was special to her. He always had methods to lead her into the trap that he made for her step by step.
And she seemed to be glad. Since Jun Yeyan treated her like this, she was afraid that she couldn’t stick to the faith in her heart firmly. She was afraid that she, who was fearless, would have weaknesses and flaws.
Thinking about this, with weak body, Bai Aoxue forced her to break away from Jun Yeyan’s embrace, while Jun Yeyan held Bai Aoxue even tighter in case Bai Aoxue would leave as if he knew her thoughts.
Bai Aoxue was originally weak since she was tortured by pain. Now since Jun Yeyan was holding her so firmly, she knew that Jun Yeyan would not allow her to leave.
Looking at Bai Aoxue who wanted to escape, Jun Yeyan stretched out his hand and stroked her head: “Xue, don’t move. I will tell you a story.”
When Bai Aoxue listened to Jun Yeyan’s words, she rolled her eyes indecently, but she did not struggle anymore. She snuggled against Jun Yeyan, waiting for his story.
When Jun Yeyan saw that Bai Aoxue was so well-behaved, his original gloomy mood became clear. This time, he would not hurt her again!
“Actually, the poisons in my body were given by my mother. My mother belongs to a faction in society. She met my royal father during his travel incognito and then fell in love with him. Since she looks alike royal father’s lover, she was brought to imperial palace. ” Jun Yeyan watched Bai Aoxue and said slowly like telling a story.
“In the beginning, as everyone thought, royal father gave mother whatever she wanted. Then mother was pregnant, which made father love her even more. I was born in the expectation of mother. Originally, she loved me very much. However, perhaps because royal father saw through something after that, he was more and more indifferent towards mother. In order to gain his love, mother even tried to take advantage of me.”
When Jun Yeyan said these words, there was a smile on the corners of his mouth. Bai Aoxue looked at Jun Yeyan silently, while she felt that he was deeply hurt at that time.
Although neither did she have parents that loved her nor a family, she had not experienced such a pain as Jun Yeyan who was used as a bargaining chip to change love by his mother who loved him.
Besides, she hurt him like that. Maybe he didn’t know that when he was young, but how could he not understand since he had already grown up?
Looking at Bai Aoxue who worried about him, Jun Yeyan smiled and said: “I’m alright.”
“You can continue if you don’t go crazy.” Bai Aoxue ridiculed, hoping that she would relax the tension.
“Mother was a poison master. She fed me with all kinds of toxins. Although those toxins would not attack me immediately, they would slowly erode my body. When I was getting weaker and weaker, my mother sent someone to inform royal father. However, he didn’t do anything. Instead, mother felt slighted even more, which made her mad. “Jun Yeyan recalled the past. Although he was sad, Bai Aoxue, who was in his arms, made him sober up.
“When she saw that this trick would get her nowhere, she even passed on her resentment to me. She thought that I shouldn’t have come to this world. Because of me, royal father didn’t love her anymore. She then sent me out of imperial palace to the martial faction she used to belong to. At that time, I was thirteen years old.” Jun Yeyan held Bai Aoxue even tighter, while his strength revealed his mood at this time.
Feeling the emotions of Jun Yeyan, Bai Aoxue put down her raising hand then raised it up again. She finally put her hand in Jun Yeyan’s palm.
Jun Yeyan felt that Bai Aoxue’s cold hand was on his palm. His original changeable mood gradually calmed down.
“I had lived in that martial faction for only two years, but it was the most unforgettable two years in my life. In those years, I worked hard to practice martial arts and then survived from death. At that time, what supported me to insist was the intention of slaughtering all the people in that faction!” Jun Yeyan didn’t want to talk too much about those dark years.
“Two years later, mother took me back, and that faction was also destroyed within one night. On the second day after I went back to imperial palace, mother treated me very well just like what she did when I was a child. However, I didn’t expect it to be the warning signs of being pushed down the hell. “Jun Yeyan said calmly, while Nalan Youhong, who was beside them, was hot with emotions.
Bai Aoxue looked at Nalan Youhong with puzzle: “What happened?”
Nalan Youhong slowly shook his head and did not say anything.
Jun Yeyan knew Nalan Youhong’s thoughts, but he still wanted to tell the whole story to Bai Aoxue. This time, with Bai Aoxue in his arms, he could feel himself, who was originally irritable and changeable, was now peaceful like a pond of still water.
“On that day, I was unconscious after eating the cake that my mother had made for me. When I woke up, there was only a sea of fire which even covered sky around me. Only mother’s light blue dress was fluttering. At that time, I knew that mother finally lost royal father. She, whose temperament was extreme, decided to let royal father repent of her death. As for me, a person who should not come to the world, should leave with her to let everything return to where it was.”
Listening to Jun Yeyan’s voice that was husky and deep, Bai Aoxue knew that Jun Yeyan was trying to tolerate.
“That day, the fire of the Aster Hall was soaring. I belonged to the first group which arrived at there. We saw a faint dancing figure through fire. In order to save Yan, I rushed into the sea of fire in desperation, then I saw Concubine Su holding a sharp knife then plunging into Yan’s heart. When I pulled him out of the sea of fire, the blood on his body was flowing like a brook which was reflected in many people’s eyes. ” Now, the speaker was Nalan Youhong who had been silent.
Those memories were what he didn’t want to face in his entire life. He didn’t know how could Concubine Su be so cruel that she even wanted to kill her own son. At that time, Jun Yeyan’s vacant-looking eyes were extremely desolate.
After listening to Nalan Youhong’s answer, Bai Aoxue didn’t expect that the ending of Concubine Su would be like this. She didn’t expect that Concubine felt that Jun Yeyan should not come to this world till her death!
Such a woman didn’t deserve to be a mother!
“After that, I was lucky enough to survive, but I was also disfigured because that fire. Royal father loved me very much, which brought about hatred and scruples of all parties and unceasing assassinations. In fact, it was royal father’s scheme. He originally planned to let Jun Wuhen to succeed the throne, but he was afraid that Jun Wuhen would be assassinated. Therefore, I became a substitution of Jun Wuhen. He then successfully becomes an emperor.” Jun Yeyan continued after Nalan Youhong’s words.
When Bai Aoxue listened to Jun Yeyan’s memories, she was agonized. If Jun Yeyan’s mother was still alive, maybe she would send her to death first.
All Jun Yeyan has suffered were because of her ridiculous love!
It was no wonder that when Jun Yeyan saw that sculpture, there was hatred and endless grief in his eyes. How could he not have a longing for his mother’s love when he was a child? However, his love was ruined by Concubine Su’s cruel treatment time after time.
