Chapter 11: A Schemer’s Plan
When she turned back, Bai Aoxue saw a man several steps away.
The well-proportioned figure, slender, tall and strong, was the perfect embodiment of strength and beauty.
The water drops flowing down slowly from the black hair were an exceptional lure. The jade mask on his face would always aroused people’s imagination because they wanted to know how he really looked like.
The splendid and mysterious black robes on his body highlighted his momentum like a dark lord.
Bai Aoxue cast a glance at Jun Yeyan, but quickly retraced her eyesight. This subtle movement instantly aroused Jun Yeyan’s interest. But Bai Aoxue didn’t know all this.
“Foolish as I am. I don’t know when I became the hostess of the palace,” Bai Aoxue said with her hand touching her hair casually. The other hand in her sleeve was ready with the poison she made that morning.
Jun Yeyan raised the brow with a smile and said: “You will be the hostess of the palace in several days, but why are you so urgent to visit me?”
After heard what Jun Yeyan said, Bai Aoxue frowned and said, “If I don’t want to marry you, nobody can stop me. Since you are not the man as it’s rumored, I think I need to think about myself.”
“Also, don’t think highly of yourself. As a curious girl, I just want to see how you look like.” Bai Aoxue changed the topic and said to Jun Yeyan with an ironic look.
She believed her instinct. Perhaps Jun Yeyan didn’t look like what people said. Every man had a story, and Bai Aoxue wasn’t interested in those stories.
“It looks like the fifth prince doesn’t look like what they say. Is this breaking news?” Bai Aoxue looked at Jun Yeyan with an ironic look.
After she finished speaking, Bai Aoxue discovered there was an obvious change in Jun Yeyan’s breath.
She cast a casual glance at the man, but discovered he was gazing at her, full of smile.
“Oh. I marvel at the surprised change in the first daughter of the prime minister. You don’t look like what they say either. Do you think you have a retreat, my pussy cat? Do you have any alternative rather than marrying the ugliest prince in the history of Chengxi Dynasty?” Jun Yeyan said in a joking manner.
“It doesn’t matter who I marry. It’s just a deal. Since you can decline the marriage, why don’t you do it? Why? Do you think you can extract some use value from me?” Bai Aoxue asked him in a stern voice.
Bai Aoxue knew Jun Yeyan had his agenda like her.
“You will know my agenda eventually. I don’t want an inquisitive hostess. I need a dutiful woman who follows the code of etiquette. I don’t care about who she is. Any girl will do. This is His Majesty’s decree. I cannot decline it,” Jun Yeyan said to Bai Aoxue who seemed to care about nothing at all now.
How didn’t Bai Aoxue, a clever girl understand what Jun Yeyan implied?
If Jun Yeyan were an authentic useless man, perhaps Bai Aoxue would happily accept the marriage.
But Jun Yeyan was obviously a sly schemer although he was the best disguiser. It seemed that he had aroused the suspicion from the Emperor
If she married the man, perhaps she would be a sacrifice someday. This was a bad deal. Bai Aoxue would never accept it.
Looking at Jun Yeyan who assumed that he was in control of everything.
Bai Aoxue said with a smile, “Although you have 99% control of the situation, I’m still the 1% unstable factor. This is a deal in exchange of my life. I wouldn’t accept it.”
After heard what Bai Aoxue said, Jun Yeyan raised the brow with a smile and then said, “It seems that you, the first daughter of the prime minister is a cheater or a fake. As I know, Bai Aoxue is a submissive girl. And you, although you are good at disguising, I would never think I recognize a wrong person because your breath is inseparable from thousands of floating corpses.”
Bai Aoxue was shocked by what he said Except the beings of her race, nobody felt her breath.
But Jun Yeyan felt it which meant he was like her. He also killed numerous people just to survive,
“Humph. Bai Aoxue is me. I’m Bai Aoxue,” Bai Aoxue feigned a composed expression, smiling coldly.
Actually, Jun Yeyan was just guessing. Jun Yeyan, although a clever man and a power manipulator, would never think that Bai Aoxue was an alien or the Sura from another world in the 21th century.
“It seems that you wouldn’t collaborate with me, my pussy cat. If you refuse to marry me, do you know how you will be punished?” Jun Yeyan said in a joking tone.
He wanted to see a flustered expression on her face because he became more interested in her.
But he was disappointed.
Bai Aoxue said coldly: “Nobody would disobey His Majesty’s decree, but am I a lamb to the slaughter?”
“There is a saying “If the monks escaped, there is still the temple!” Jun Yeyan reminded her “kind-heartedly”.
After heard what Jun Yeyan said Bai Aoxue knew he meant the people of the prime minister. She was stiff for a moment. When Jun Yeyan thought she might change her mind.
Bai Aoxue sneered, “My family members? Ha-ha. I don’t have so many dignified family members. Don’t worry! As for those in the prime minister’s mansion you mentioned, they have no relationship with me. I don’t care about who is alive or dying.”
After she finished speaking, Bai Aoxue turned back gracefully and was ready to leave.
Looking at Bai Aoxue’s back Jun Yeyan didn’t stop her.
What shocked him more was her coldness like him.
“You will be back, my pussy cat,” Although still domineering, he began to have another expectation.
