On the contrary, Xue Cai composed himself at this moment and gently supported her arm as he said, “Aunt, Xiao Cai has come to see you. If you have any words, let’s go in and say.”

The young man had a sallow complexion, purplish black lips and a painful expression. The uncle brought over a canteen and fed that gentleman a few mouthfuls of water. Then, he asked his comrades, “Still no news of Old Ge and the others?”

The person who he asked shook his head. “There are many crossroads here and it’s a heavy downpour now. I’m afraid that they won’t be able to find us in a short while.”

Moreover, that kind of wonderful fiancé’s family, that kind of wonderful husband, it’s a wonderful marriage affinity that doesn’t even come when you pray for it. What are you scared of?”  

“I’m scared……” Maybe because her Mother’s voice was too gentle or maybe because the scenery outside the window of the buds just beginning to bloom was too beautiful, Jiang Chenyu allowed herself to be immersed in those countless wisps of complicated delicate feelings and said her most sincere words, “I’m scared that Gentleman marrying me is a calamity and not a fortune.”  

Madam Jiang was stunned. “What?”

I kicked the door open with one leg. The people inside all turned around to look over. As soon as Grand Tutor Xie saw that it was me, he wanted to reprimand me a few words out of habit. My two eyes turned red as they spurted flames and he was frightened until he closed his mouth.

Second Imperial Prince, Xiao Li was sitting upright in the main hall. When he saw me, he revealed the exemplary smile often seen on the faces of politicians. I looked at him sideways and rolled my eyes superciliously at him.
