Chapter 35: Sea Accompany with Songs and Sheng
Bai Aoxue looked at Jun Yeyan who stared at her without blinking, her heart was flustered. She said viciously: “Don’t you leave? What are you doing here?”
Jun Yeyan looked at Bai Aoxue’s flustered face, only feeling her extremely cute.
And Jun Yeyan also found that, in fact, Bai Aoxue was neither expressionless nor emotionless. She also had the bashfulness of young girls.
It was just that Bai Aoxue was too competitive. She never expressed her emotions. Although such a person had a strong mind, she would still be tired most of the times. Bai Aoxue maybe just liked this.
Nowadays, Bai Aoxue would show expressions besides indifference in front of him. Jun Yeyan felt sincerely pleased since only in this way did Bai Aoxue look like a living person.
Jun Yeyan also believed that Bai Aoxue would gradually open her mind to him. Of course, the premise was that he needed to work hard.
“It seems that you don’t want me to leave.” Jun Yeyan said to Bai Aoxue with an arch tone.
When Bai Aoxue heard Jun Yeyan, she only felt that this person was so narcissistic.
“Oh, I think you’re over confident. If a person has absolute glamour, his self-confidence would be understood. However, being self-confident without charm only makes people feel that this person is extremely narcissistic!” Bai Aoxue sneered.
After hearing the words of Bai Aoxue, Jun Yeyan almost became breathless. He didn’t expect Bai Aoxue to be so biting!
But then on second thought, realizing that he was just the ugliest prince in the history of Chengxi Dynasty, he was relieved.
“Shouldn’t you feel happy for having such a confident husband, my wife?” Jun Yeyan suddenly said.
Bai Aoxue was stunned for a glimpse about Jun Yeyan’s words. She then unspeakably looked at Jun Yeyan.
She didn’t expect that Jun Yeyan would be so— funny, right, funny. He even mentioned husband and wife.
“You didn’t take medicine today before going out? Come back to take your medicine.” Bai Aoxue pushed Jun Yeyan.
Jun Yeyan heard a string of approaching footsteps at the same time, so he didn’t think too much about Bai Aoxue’s words.
“I am leaving. Take care of yourself. Now you are besieged on all sides. If there are any unexpected accidents, you could give me signals. I will come for you.” Jun Yeyan warned Bai Aoxue, while stuffing a bamboo roll into Bai Aoxue’s hand.
Jun Yeyan turned quickly when Bai Aoxue was just about to talk. Leaving her no chance, he jumped over the window frame and then disappeared into the darkness.
Bai Aoxue looked at the bamboo roll in her hand. It was a delicate tiny green roll with a small word ‘yan’ in the corner.
What Bai Aoxue didn’t know was that there was only one person who had this bamboo roll in the whole Great Continent.
If you can get this bamboo roll, you can make a storm in Great Continent.
When Bai Aoxue was still thinking, she heard the knocking sound of Hongxiu outside the door.
“Miss Bai, you can wash up now.”
“Oh, okay. Put it there and I am coming. You can go back to take rests.” Bai Aoxue put away the bamboo roll and said indifferently.
Bai Aoxue went to rest after simply cleaning herself. As for what kind of trouble they would encounter after going back to Prime Minister’s mansion tomorrow, she was too lazy to think about.
“Miss, it’s time to get up. Eunuch Zhao has already sent some people here.” The first thing Mumian did after getting up was to harass Bai Aoxue.
Bai Aoxue, who was still asleep, frowned slightly when she heard Mumian, but did not open her eyes.
Mumian looked at the appearance of Bai Aoxue and knew that she was tired in the past few days.
She was also very distressed, so she didn’t plan to call Bai Aoxue again. She would let those people wait if they wanted to.
Thinking about this, Mumian leisurely walked away and sat on the chair by the window, waiting until Bai Aoxue woke up naturally.
And Bai Aoxue went to sleep after finding no one bothered her.
Bai Aoxue slept well, while that eunuch waiting outside suffered a lot.
After dressing and making up leisurely, Bai Aoxue found that the sun has already been shining.
“Mumian, did His Majesty send someone over?” Bai Aoxue looked at Mumian who rested on the chair by the side.
When Mumian found that Bai Aoxue has already dressed up, she stood up and said: “Miss, I didn’t know that you can sleep for such a long time. Now it is already lunch time. That little eunuch has been waiting outside for a long time.”
After listening to Mumian, Bai Aoxue vaguely remembered that when she was sleepy, Mumian seemed to have called her.
“Let’s go, we should go back.” Bai Aoxue stood up and stepped towards the door.
Mumian also quickly followed her. Mumian adored this now powerful Bai Aoxue very much.
As soon as Bai Aoxue walked out of the inner room, she saw Hongxiu and Wenxi waiting for her.
When they saw Bai Aoxue coming out, they immediately came to greet her.
“Miss Bai, are you leaving?” Hongxiu asked nervously.
When Bai Aoxue saw Hongxiu and Wenxi’s expression, she knew that something had happened.
“Yes, what can I do for you? Why are you hesitating?” Bai Aoxue asked them, looking at them with a stern sight.
These two people knew that Bai Aoxue was sagacious, but they didn’t expect that she could see it from one glance.
Hongxiu and Wenxi turned panic when they faced Bai Aoxue’s straightforward questions.
Bai Aoxue didn’t ask any further but patiently waited.
In the end, it was Hongxiu who nerved herself. She looked up at Bai Aoxue and said: “Miss Bai, this is the case. Today, His Majesty let Eunuch Zhao inform us that we will follow you and serve you from now on.”
After listening to Hongxiu, Bai Aoxue raised up her eyebrows without surprise. She knew it. How could Jun Wuhen trust her to stay alone outside the imperial palace? He would definitely set one or two eyeliners and monitored her every move.
“Oh? Why does His Emperor want you to follow me? I don’t lack of maidservants.” Bai Aoxue asked indifferently.
When they heard Bai Aoxue’s question, they were surprised. If she were like most people, she would feel deeply grateful to emperor’s blessing. However, Bai Aoxue asked for the reason.
Wenxi understood why His Majesty said that they couldn’t treat Bai Aoxue as an ordinary people.
However, Hongxiu was puzzle by Bai Aoxue’s question. She didn’t quite understand why His Majesty would give them to Bai Aoxue.
“Responding to Miss Bai, His Majesty said that none of those slaves in Prime Minister’s mansion can be your able aider. His Majesty let us stay with you and protect you.” Wenxi said calmly.
“Protect me? Do you know martial arts?” Bai Aoxue pretended to be surprised.
Looking at Bai Aoxue’s surprising expression, although ridiculing her in mind, Wenxi still said calmly: “Yes, though we are not good at it, we can still protect Miss Bai!”
After listening to Wenxi’s words, Bai Aoxue looked at Hongxiu and asked: “Hongxiu, do you want to stay in the palace or leave with me?”
Hongxiu heard Bai Aoxue, looking at her surprisingly with a pair of big eyes.
She was sold to the imperial palace since she was a child. After a series of training, she could finally live as a normal person.
But she was told to follow Bai Aoxue. Although she did not understand the reason, she knew that everything was the order of His Majesty and she wouldn’t go against it.
Today, Bai Aoxue took the initiative to ask her, which gave her a feeling of being treated equally.
“Miss Bai, I am willing to follow you and live outside the imperial palace!” Hongxiu firmly looked at Bai Aoxue.
After listening to Hongxiu, Bai Aoxue smiled and said: “So, you can follow me.”
Although Wenxi was wondering why Bai Aoxue didn’t ask her, she didn’t think too much because she has completed her task for being allowed to follow Bai Aoxue.
However clever Jun Wuhen was? He knew that Bai Aoxue would suspect, so he only sent one of his people to become Bai Aoxue’s maidservant.
Only one of the two was his subordinate, and the other was used as cover. In this way, Bai Aoxue wouldn’t easily suspect any of them.
However, although he knew that Bai Aoxue was smart, he didn’t realize that Bai Aoxue had such a thorough understanding of human’s mind.
In this game, Jun Wuhen has lost the advantage.
Bai Aoxue no longer hesitated, walking out of Moyu Hall with Mumian and others.
Bai Aoxue, who came out, saw that little eunuch who was waiting at the door.
“Hey, Miss Bai, you finally came out. I’ve waited for you for a long time.” That little eunuch immediately came to greet me with a bright smile when he saw Bai Aoxue.
Bai Aoxue found that this little eunuch should be young and pretty. Unfortunately, he was a eunuch.
How cruel the ancient imperial palace was! It would never be merciless towards the weak.
“It’s Aoxue’s fault to let you wait for such a long time. And your last name?” Bai Aoxue stepped forward and took some pieces of silver ingots from Mumian then handed them to that little eunuch.
The little eunuch did not reject. He smiled and took over Bai Aoxue’s rewards: “Miss Bai, that’s very kind of you. My name is Cangsheng.”
Bai Aoxue listened to Cangsheng’s name and praised: “Does it come from ‘Still water run deep. Songs accompany with sea and Sheng’?”
“Yes, it’s Cangsheng from ‘Songs accompany with sea and Sheng’.” He said to Bai Aoxue with smile.
If his laugh was a false cover at the beginning, then now his smile contained more sincerity.
“Good name!” Bai Aoxue praised.
“Thank you for your admiring, Miss Bai. I didn’t expect that this name is coming from a poem.” He exclaimed.
Bai Aoxue listened to his words but smiled and asked casually: “Did 5th prince come out of the imperial palace first?”
When Cangsheng heard it, he immediately answered, “Yes, there are still things that need to be dealt with by His Highness, so he went out of the palace first. He let me tell Miss Bai that he will visit your house within the next few days.”
Bai Aoxue looked at the flowery courtyard and raised her hand to caress her hair on the temple gently.
“Since it is the case, let’s go.” Then she went to the gate.
Everyone also quickly caught up.
When they walked out of the palace gate, Bai Aoxue sat on the horse carriage that has prepared by Jun Wuhen before and went to Prime Minister’s mansion.
Looking at the palace which gradually drifted away, Bai Aoxue had no nostalgia at all.
“Miss, why do you need so many attendants? Don’t you require me anymore?” Mumian kept being silent until she got on the carriage.
Bai Aoxue looked at Mumian’s aggrieved face and said: “They were given to me by His Majesty. Do you want your Miss to defy the imperial edict! Moreover, since they follow me, you can also do fewer things. They know martial arts, so they can protect you when I am not there.”
Mumian listened to Bai Aoxue’s words, and her face turned red. She didn’t think so much at all. At that time, she had only one thought which was that Bai Aoxue didn’t need this useless her anymore.
Now Mumian was moved about Bai Aoxue’s words. She did not expect that Bai Aoxue has made this decision for her sake.
“Oh… Miss, I was wrong. I didn’t even think of these.” Mumian looked at Bai Aoxue with red eyes.
Bai Aoxue looked at Mumian who was going to cry again and immediately said: “That’s ok. No one would blame you. Don’t cry. You need to remember that everyone could be left by me but you.”
Mumian heard the words of Bai Aoxue and nodded.
However, Prime Minister’s mansion, on the other side, had an uninvited guest.
“Suxue, you said that my aunt was set to ancestral hall by that go-for-nothing Bai Aoxue?” This girl’s appearance was somewhat similar to Bai Suxue.
However, she was much more beautiful than Bai Suxue. That face was delicate and attractive even without using make-up. Each leisure look of her was full of brightness.
This girl was not someone else; she was Su Mengrou, who was known as the first beauty in Chengxi.
