It seemed like Chu Wang Mansion's and Chu Xiang Mansion's restlessness had angered her grandfather, who had always been protecting her. Today, he had deliberately come to kill these despicable people!
However, such a simple thought had already been speculated and weighed by those lords. It was likely that they had already thought of hundreds and thousands of such ideas!
"You're still laughing!" "This is a crucial moment to whether or not you want to become Princess Consort Chu!" Others could not see Yun Qian Meng's expression, but Qu Fei Qing, who was sitting beside her, could see it clearly. Seeing her younger cousin acting as if it had nothing to do with her, Qu Fei Qing immediately became anxious and reached out her hand to gently pinch Yun Qian Meng, reminding her in a low voice!
"Don't worry, cousin!" How could the succession be so easily decided upon? Furthermore, the people present were only Tier 3 and above officials, and Chu Wang was so important that the Emperor would not immediately come to a conclusion at this banquet! Besides, you will never be able to get away with the things in this world. Even if you snatch them away, you will lose them! "Cousin, don't worry. Grandpa and Darling are both confident in our abilities!" The last sentence was to explain to Qu Fei Qing that Chu Fei Yang was actually a participant in today's events!
By passing the matter of Chu Wang's heir to Emperor Yu Qian on the surface, she indirectly shifted the gazes of the assassins in the dark to Chu Wang Mansion's residence, which would also be safer compared to the Chu Xiang Mansion!
However, to Qu Fei Qing, Yun Qian Meng's ability to underestimate the esteemed princess consort that everyone had taken a fancy to was admirable! Those who had thought that Meng'er wanted to be the princess would never have thought that Yun Qian Meng didn't have any fantasies about that position at all!
"If that's the case, then I will pay more attention to the prince!" "Prince, please take a seat!" Seeing that Chu Wang was not about to decide on the next Chu Wang, he smiled and motioned for Chu Nanshan to sit down. He then looked at the still standing Rui Wang, and after giving a few words of explanation to Eunuch Yu, he slowly spoke to Rui Wang, "Fourth Brother, follow Eunuch Yu to change your clothes!"
"Thank you, Imperial Brother!" The Rui Wang bowed respectfully to Emperor Yu Gan, and then followed Eunuch Yu out of the hall!
The crowd, however, did not notice that Matriarch Gu and Ji Shuyu were exchanging glances with each other!
It was unknown whether it was because the two of them were preoccupied, but they felt that when Emperor Yu Gan had scanned the young ladies, he had slightly paused on Qu Fei Qing's body!
If it wasn't for Chu Wang stepping out to speak, Emperor Yu Qian would have already chosen Qu Fei Qing as princess consort Rui. It was unknown if it was a coincidence or not, but both of them were filled with gratitude towards Chu Wang!
Chu Nanshan, on the other hand, had returned to his previous sickly state. From time to time, he would cough a few times and even instruct Chu Feiyang to pour some tea.
The hall resounded once again with the sounds of singing and dancing. There were waves of undercurrents hidden within the depressed voices, but they were concealed by the luxurious images on the surface!
"Cousin, that person in the amber brocade robe must be Hai Jun Wang of the Hai Mansion!" At this moment, Xiahou An approached Yun Qian Meng. She stared into the sneering eyes of Hai Chen Xi and asked Yun Qian Meng!
"It's him!" Seeing that Xiahou An was smart enough to guess Hai Chen Xi's identity, Yun Qian Meng nodded with a smile. She was curious as to why there were other nobles in the hall, and why Xiahou An was only staring at Hai Chen Xi.
When Xiahou An heard Yun Qian Meng's question, a tinge of anger surfaced on her face. When she saw that Hai Chen Xi had quietly left the main hall, she could not help but retract his gaze and angrily said, "Who would know him!"
Yun Qian Meng shook her head and snickered when she saw her angry expression. She couldn't help but mock herself for overthinking things. Even if she had met Xiahou An, it was unlikely that she would fall for Hai Chen Xi so quickly! Not to mention that even if Hai Chen Xi was capable of standing up to Chu Feiyang, Xiahou An wouldn't lose her composure like this!
As she spoke, everyone saw the neatly dressed and neatly groomed Rui Wang appear at the entrance of the great hall together with the handsome and noble royal family. They could only see him following behind Eunuch Yu as he solemnly walked into the great hall. Out of the corner of his eye, however, he saw the ladies of each family. He even paused slightly when he saw Xiahou An's heavenly beauty!
Xiahou An was so focused on making a fool of herself in front of Hai Chen Xi that she naturally didn't notice any details, but Yun Qian Meng had noticed that her attention was focused on everyone in the hall!
Seeing the stunned expression on Xiahou An's face, Yun Qian Meng's heart skipped a beat. She smiled as she pulled Xiahou An up and said in a low voice, "I was pretty drunk just now, why don't you accompany me outside to dissipate the smell of alcohol!"
With that, without waiting for Xiahou An to speak, she quietly pulled her out of the hall!
"What happened to Cousin?" To walk in such a state while feeling lightheaded, be careful of falling down! " Xiahou An only laughed when the two of them walked out of the main hall!
Although Xiahou An had only been with Yun Qian Meng for a few days, she knew that Yun Qian Meng was an extremely calm and collected person. She did not show any signs of anxiety in front of outsiders.
Hearing the girl's mockery of her, Yun Qian Meng sighed in her heart. If she knew that the Rui Wang had his eyes on her, she would probably jump up and help her escape this calamity. She would be extremely sad!
"Is Cousin dizzy?" "How about I help you go back to the mansion first!" Seeing that Yun Qian Meng was sighing with her head lowered, Xiahou An was filled with concern!
"It's fine!" It would be better if she came out! "Follow me around and wait until the palace feast is over before you go back!" With that, Yun Qian Meng brought Xiahou An along as they walked along the bluestone path!
At this time, the auspicious snow had just melted, and the temperature was extremely low. The melted snow gradually condensed into ice that threw itself onto the limestone, so the two of them were very careful with every step they took. Otherwise, if they fell, not only would their bodies hurt, they might even be mocked and slandered by the people in the palace!
"Cousin, can you smell a faint fragrance wafting in the air?!" After leaving the grand hall where the incense had been burned, Xiahou An's voices were immediately silenced by the fragrance of the incense!
"This is the fragrance of the La Mei Flower!" "This time of the year is the season for the flowers. The fragrance is fresh and refreshing. If you put one in your room, the fragrance will last for a long time. It will be much more comfortable than burning incense!" Yun Qian Meng looked at the direction she was standing at, and an image of a palace that might be planted in her mind appeared in her mind!
"Then, Cousin, let's go back!" "I've never seen such a flower in Luo City!" After listening to Yun Qian Meng's narration, Xiahou An's curiosity were piqued. They tugged on Yun Qian Meng's sleeves and shook it coquettishly, making Yun Qian Meng feel really uncomfortable. She raised her hand and tapped her forehead, and could only compromise, "You can't pick every single plant and tree in the palace, much less break every branch and branch!" "However, if we put La Mei flower in the lotus bag, I believe the Imperial Guards won't be able to check it either!"
Seeing Yun Qian Meng agree, Xiahou An smiled and nodded. She immediately took out the delicate lotus bag from her belt and held it in her hand, following Yun Qian Meng as she walked along the wall.
Yun Qian Meng, on the other hand, followed the scent towards the area where the fragrance was coming from. In the courtyard behind the main hall, she saw a few La Mei flower. They smiled at each other and quickly walked to the tree, quickly picking the flowers that were blooming!
"I didn't expect Madam Chu to have such a good mood, picking flowers here!" Unexpectedly, just as the two were in the middle of picking, a slightly cold and mocking voice was heard!
Xiahou An's hands trembled slightly, and they immediately fell back down!
As for Yun Qian Meng, she furrowed her brows as astonishment flashed in her eyes. After which, she turned around and saw Hai Chen Xi standing behind the two of them. At this moment, he gave off a feeling of unruliness, but the glint in his eyes was so intense that no one would dare to underestimate him!
Especially when he had appeared behind them just now. Yun Qian Meng hadn't detected his presence or footsteps, which was enough to show that Hai Chen Xi was extraordinary. It made people even more wary of him!
However, if Hai Chen Xi wished to see them screaming in panic, his calculations were wrong. Yun Qian Meng smiled elegantly as he spoke, "Hai Jun Wang is joking!" "I just didn't think that you would have such a good mood to enjoy the plum blossoms!"
"It's just that I don't have the interest of a madam. Not only do I have to admire the plum blossom, I also have to pick the plum blossom! "I believe that when Chu Wang mentioned the matter of attacking the viscount just now, Madam must be extremely happy in her heart!" As he slowly approached the two of them, Hai Chen Xi had a casual smile on his face. However, the crunching sound of snow under his feet was as terrifying as what he had said!
Yun Qian Meng then took Xiahou An's hand and gave the best place to admire the plum blossom to Hai Chen Xi. She then brought Xiahou An out, keeping a distance of twenty feet from Hai Chen Xi calmly and rationally.
"The Hai Jun Wang must be joking. Although the matter of him being the lord is a big matter for the Chu Clan, it is not something women and children can participate in. How could I dare to casually express my opinion? I have my grandfather and the emperor to decide, and no one else has any room to peck at me!" Yun Qian Meng skillfully avoided Hai Chen Xi's question, but at the same time, she was also secretly mocking Hai Chen Xi for being so nosy! When had the people from the Hai Mansion come to criticize and criticize the Chu Clan? If that was the case, then Hai Chen Xi probably wouldn't have been able to take the seat of the Hai Jun Wang!
Hearing Yun Qian Meng using words to attack him, Hai Chen Xi's eyes lit up. He felt that Yun Qian Meng was as sharp as he remembered. He couldn't help but think of that night when he was on the boat. She was also the one protecting her cousin.
But unfortunately, that night, before they could finish their conversation, Hai Tian had already broken it. And this time, there was another impetuous little girl standing beside her!
The faint smile in his eyes was still there, but the gaze that turned towards Xiahou An now contained a hint of sharpness, causing her to feel chilled. She immediately met the gaze of the bottomless Hai Chen Xi, and felt that his eyes were filled with frost, but also with a pool of water that concealed it. Her heart trembled slightly; she didn't know what kind of man he was, or why he had such an extreme expression!
"An'er, you still haven't met Hai Jun Wang!" "This time, the one who is on good terms with the Prince of Northern Qi is the younger sister of Hai Jun Wang, Princess He Shun!" Seeing that Hai Chen Xi was looking at Xiahou An with a trace of coldness in his eyes, Yun Qian Meng immediately spoke!
Xiahou An kept the lotus bag in their hands and pinned it to their waists. They slightly blessed Hai Chen Xi as they greeted him lightly, "Greetings, Hai Jun Wang!"
Hai Chen Xi, on the other hand, didn't pay too much attention to Xiahou An. He turned to Yun Qian Meng with a faint smile in his eyes, while his mind echoed the words Yun Qian Meng had said when she introduced him to Xiahou An!
It was just that she was not used to being stared at by Chu Feiyang's cousin with eyes filled with killing intent, so Yun Qian Meng used this chance to introduce them to one another and inserted some information about Hai Tian into her words to divert her attention!
It was no wonder that Chu Feiyang had set his eyes on Yun Qian Meng. For a woman with Seven Apertures Mystical Heart, it was no wonder that Jiang Muchen was so regretful that he wished he could destroy the Chu Xiang Mansion!
