WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE - WILD PRINCESS: MARRYING AN UGLY PRINCE Chapter 69 - One Appointment for One Person Only
When Jun Yeyan heard that sound, his hand that opened the door was stiff in the air, while the person who spoke behind him did not move forward, as if he was waiting for Jun Yeyan’s answer.
Jun Yeyan put down his hand in a huff then picked up an elegant smile calmly. He slowly turned and said: “Xue is my fiancée. Why shouldn’t I come to see Xue?”
“Hum! Your Highness, do not forget that Aoxue hasn’t married you yet. Even if you are engaged, you can’t break into her room!” His angry voice indicated that he was going to fly into a rage.
Looking at Ye Zhaojue who was angry, Jun Yeyan said: “Your words are inappropriate, uncle. My heart could be seen by the whole world. I have such reckless behaviors just because I miss Xue so much.”
“Even if you miss Aoxue, you should come in through the main entrance. You even don’t know where the main entrance of General’s mansion is, do you?” Ye Zhaojue bantered with Jun Yeyan.
When Bai Aoxue went back together with him yesterday, he felt that something was wrong, which he did not notice at the beginning. He kept feeling that there was a faint bloody smell in the air.
He wasn’t alert until early morning, when Uncle Fu said that Mumian went to him and asked for a lot of white gauze. He was very worried about Bai Aoxue, so he came over and looked at her. As luck would have it, he met Jun Yeyan unexpectedly.
Looking at Ye Zhaojue who frowned, Jun Yeyan did not panic. He said: “Excuse me, uncle. I originally planned to visit you in a few days, but I didn’t expect that I would be so rude today.”
Ye Zhaojue, who was originally thinking, was also called back to himself by Jun Yeyan’s voice. He looked at Jun Yeyan seriously: “If it is not because of Aoxue, maybe I can’t have any intersection with you, Your Highness.”
When Jun Yeyan listened to Ye Zhaojue’s words, he nodded in agreement.
Although he knew that Ye Zhaojue was talented and brave in the past, Ye Zhaojue did not pose a threat to him, so he did not care about him all. However, fate actually played a trick on him. The person that he did not care about was the closest relative of the people he loved most now.
Seeing that Jun Yeyan also agreed with his words, Ye Zhaojue continued: “I thought you might not be what you looked like, but I had no more interest in knowing you. I have been fighting for Chengxi for so many years. The only reason is that I only want to pretend Aoxue from being bullied. When someone wants to bully her, her uncle is a general who can protect her.”
There was firmness in Ye Zhaojue’s eyes that even couldn’t be surpassed by Jun Yeyan. The firmness in his eyes meant that he would protect Bai Aoxue with his life.
“Now, Aoxue is going to marry you. If she is forced by His Majesty, I will definitely turn the whole Chengxi upside down, but Aoxue told me that she was willing to marry you. I owe her too much and I didn’t shoulder responsibility as an uncle, but since this is Aoxue’s choice, I will not stop her.” Ye Zhaojue looked at Jun Yeyan without blinking.
After listening to Ye Zhaojue’s words, Jun Yeyan did not express any opinion. He also looked at Ye Zhaojue seriously.
“I didn’t want Aoxue to be involved in your royal family. I was afraid that Aoxue would become a prey in such an intrigue. However, it seems that I thought too much. I have underestimated Aoxue and you. But this is also good. I will go back to the battlefield anyway. If one day I sacrifice, Aoxue will be alone. Now she has you, at least Aoxue will not feel lonely.” Ye Zhaojue smiled with gratification.
Looking at Ye Zhaojue who considered the interests of Bai Aoxue, Jun Yeyan was filled with emotions. Ye Zhaojue might not be a successful big brother, but he was a successful uncle.
He was in the position of Bai Aoxue to consider the benefits for her.
“Uncle, please rest assured. I will not let Xue feel lonely in my whole life.” Jun Yeyan looked at Ye Zhaojue seriously.
Such a heavy conversation was like an oath that deeply imprinted on Jun Yeyan and Ye Zhaojue’s hearts.
This was an agreement between men but only for one person.
Looking at Jun Yeyan’s firm eyes, Ye Zhaojue discovered that he had never seen this 5th prince who was described as a shame of Chengxi in legend carefully. Perhaps if he had observed him earlier, he would found his distinctions.
Just from this pair of wise eyes that were full of thought, people couldn’t think that he was a good-for-nothing. Surely enough, rumors could only be rumors.
Presumably those who looked down on Jun Yeyan would regret and even thump their chest and stamp their feet!
“I hope that Your Highness will not let me down. Xue has suffered too much. I hope that she can live a happy life in the future. If Your Highness can’t do it, I will sacrifice everything to ruin you!” Ye Zhaojue said seriously and solemnly. His eyes were bright and shining.
Jun Yeyan also knew that Ye Zhaojue was the kind of person who would do what he said. If he really upset Bai Aoxue, Ye Zhaojue probably would risk his life to fight him.
Jun Yeyan’s silence made Ye Zhaojue frowned, but he did not say anything.
It seemed that after half a century, a fit of laughter which was like the sound of nature was poured out from Jun Yeyan’s thin lips that were bent. A breeze kissed over, and the smell of dew in the air was surprisingly fresh.
“Haha, don’t worry, uncle. My willingness to protect Xue is ten times even a hundred times and a thousand times more than yours!” Jun Yeyan stared at Ye Zhaojue without blinking. His glistening eyes were lovely.
Looking at Jun Yeyan, Ye Zhaojue knew that his words were sincere, and he was more satisfied with him. Nothing could make him happier than finding a good husband for his niece.
“I only have one niece and I only hope that she can be happy. I missed so much time because I didn’t understand Xue’s mother. Now, I don’t want it to happen again.” Ye Zhaojue seemed to recall his sister. He sighed and said so.
Jun Yeyan also knew that Ye Zhaojue and Bai Aoxue’s mother were very close to each other. Ye Zhaojue brought Bai Aoxue’s mother up alone, so he was like half a father. However, Bai Aoxue’s mother died early, she had been buried before Ye Zhaojue came back from the battlefield.
This may be the biggest regret and sore point in Ye Zhaojue’s whole life.
What Jun Yeyan and Ye Zhaojue did not know was that, only one door away, Bai Aoxue woke up when Ye Zhaojue arrived, but she did not speak. Instead, she kept listening to the conversation between Ye Zhaojue and Jun Yeyan.
She always knew that Ye Zhaojue was thinking for her interests in everything, but when she heard Ye Zhaojue’s words now, she was sad and happy at the same time.
In the past, she thought that happiness was breakable. she would never be the one that was blessed, but since she came to Great Continent, she discovered that fate played a friendly trick on her.
Now, her happiness was touchable and could be hugged. She no longer needed to live just for living itself. She had relatives whom she cared about and who cared about her.
She also found reasons to live a good life!
Thinking about this, Bai Aoxue took a deep breath then gently pushed the door with a bright smile on her face.
Hearing the sound of door, Jun Yeyan and Ye Zhaojue almost turned around at the same time.
Looking at Bai Aoxue’s happy smile that came from her heart, Jun Yeyan knew that she heard their conversation, because Bai Aoxue was now natural and bright. She wouldn’t be like this before.
When Ye Zhaojue looked at Bai Aoxue who stared at him with a smile, he actually blushed. He was perturbed because he didn’t know how much Aoxue had heard his sentimental words.
He didn’t know that Bai Aoxue heard them all.
Bai Aoxue immediately knew what Ye Zhaojue was thinking from his embarrassed appearance. Bai Aoxue, who did not intend to uncover him, smiled and said: “Why did you come so early, uncle? I was having a good sleep, but I woke up when I heard your voice just now.”
After listening to Bai Aoxue’ words, Ye Zhaojue was relieved since he knew that Bai Aoxue did not hear much.
If his niece had heard those sentimental words that he said, he would feel too ashamed to show his face.
“Cough… Uncle Fu said that you let Mumian find a lot of gauze for you last night, so I worried if you were injured. So here I am.” Ye Zhaojue pretended to cough.
Bai Aoxue was shocked when she listened to Ye Zhaojue’s words, but her expression didn’t change. She said without showing any emotions: “Uncle, you think too much. How could I get injured? As for the gauze, I indeed need to use it. Don’t worry about me, uncle.”
After listening to Bai Aoxue’s words, Ye Zhaojue wanted to ask more questions, but Jun Yeyan spoke before him.
“Since Xue has already woken up, I should go back. I’ll visit uncle with vintage wine some other time.” Jun Yeyan looked at Bai Aoxue with a smile but talked to Ye Zhaojue.
Looking at Jun Yeyan’s smile, Bai Aoxue felt panic then lowered her head.
When she listening to the words of Jun Yeyan, she became very nervous. She didn’t understand why Jun Yeyan was so eager to promise. They agreed that they would only help each other to solve problems. After that, she would leave.
But now what Jun Yeyan said made her calm heart ripple.
When she looked at Jun Yeyan’s eyes, she also flustered. Bai Aoxue could not understand her behaviors.
Ye Zhaojue looked at Bai Aoxue then looked at Jun Yeyan. He said: “Sure. But I hope that Your Highness will remember to go in through the main entrance next time!”
Ye Zhaojue’s meaningful words made Bai Aoxue’s mouth quiver.
She didn’t expect that her uncle, who was so cold, had such a humorous potential.
After listening to Ye Zhaojue’s words, Jun Yeyan nodded and looked at Bai Aoxue: “Xue, I am leaving. You should take care of yourself.”
“Just go.” Bai Aoxue urged Jun Yeyan.
Jun Yeyan did not linger. He tipped his toes lightly then flew away.
This fascinating act stunned Ye Zhaojue. Jun Yeyan really surprised him today. He was shocked even if he had a strong psychological endurance capacity.
Looking at Ye Zhaojue’s expression, Bai Aoxue resisted her smile and said: “Uncle, are you shocked? I was also a little surprised at first.”
“Girl, you know it long ago. Why didn’t you tell me?” Ye Zhaojue pretended to be angry.
Bai Aoxue stuck out her small tongue. Her cute face was lovely.
“I thought that you would know it, uncle. You don’t blame me, do you?” Bai Aoxue smiled.
“Ah… never mind. Since this is your choice, you should not regret. As long as you are happy, how can I blame you?” Ye Zhaojue sighed.
“Thank you, uncle. I will not let you down!” Bai Aoxue swept her clever look and said seriously.
“Go to groom and wash then have breakfast with me. His Majesty specially let me have three days off, so I don’t need to attend the morning audience with him. I can be with you.” Ye Zhaojue rubbed Bai Aoxue’s little head.
When Bai Aoxue was about to talk, a figure quickly rushed into this quiet little courtyard and yelled: “General! Some people are stirring up trouble at General’s Mansion!”
