王爺你好賤 17 – Engagement gathering (iii)

17


Zhu WuXin touched the side of her cheek, which has suffered a tight slap.
The next moment, she mercilessly backhanded that person, returning the slap back to her.

Unfathomable mystery[1], why is it the people in this period like to slap people in the face so much! Especially this person in front of her, slapping people the moment we met, who the Hell she think she is!

That person in front of her obviously didn’t expect Zhu WuXin would hit her, she was stunned for quite a while before start shrieking, “You dare to hit Bengong!”[2]

“Princess[3], are you okay?”

Zhu JiXiang saw that the Princess was slapped, immediately rushing over and loudly scolded Zhu WuXin, “Worthless thing who don’t value its own life, you even dare to hit Princess Ning An! Servants, come and drag her out for me!”

“You dare?”

“Hold on!”

Both WuXin and Ning An spoke at the same time.

“You hit Bengong today, Bengong won’t let you off that easily!” roared Ning An.

Meanwhile, in a small pavilion a distance away across the stream, an eunuch asked in a small voice to the person before the small coffee table, “Ninth Prince, do you want to go take a look?”

The Ninth Prince, Ning Lian Xia leisurely put back the fan in his hand, waved his hand to dismiss the notion saying, “This temper of Ning An can’t cause any big deal.”

“Yes.” The eunuch retreated outside.

Ever since the marriage matching gathering started, Lian Xia has already noticed Zhu WuXin who was sitting beside the stream, eating non-stop. From the distance, it’s obvious that the things she ate were all the usual food he has been eating to the point of getting sick of it. But he don’t understand why, she ate it like it’s scrumptious, it makes him want to go over and get a taste. It seems to her, that eating is much more important than searching for a man (to marry).

Furthermore, her expression of being happy and content, raising her head lazily and basking in the sun, is just like a painting of tall trees with bright, clear sky. And she, is the person who brings out the essence of the painting. From the moment he saw her, his gaze has never left her. At first, he was wondering if she is a Miss from any House. Just that when he saw her attire of rough material clothing, totally lack of elegance, he dismissed his thought. But then, there were slightly air of elegance emitting from her body, she doesn’t seemed to be common maidservants.

Who is she actually?

All kinds of guesses are making Lian Xia very curious.

Not to mention she even hit Princess Ning An. It was known that Ning An is famous in the entire Capital for being arrogant and despotic, there were less than a few of people who don’t afraid of her. That being said, this girl dared to give her a slap. So he decided to take a look how would she deal with this matter.

And also take a look, as she seemed to be an interesting girl.


[1] : 莫名其妙 – Meaning to indicate something you don’t understand or a mystery

[2] : 本宮 – I was torn between putting Bengong or Me (with a capital M) because Bengong looked terrible, while Me doesn’t show much strength and ME sounds like screaming. Btw, Bengong is how people from the Imperial Family address themselves to other people.

[3] : 郡主 – She should be a Princess , but not sure why wiki said the title Junzhu was given to daughter of Qinwang (Blood-related Prince). I will translate it as Princess because after reading Chu Wang Fei , I realized how puzzling it is to have the characters to be called by their name, their title, their positions.

[Translator note : Ninth Prince has appeared. YAY! XDXDXD I like his face the most because he’s cute~ XDXDXD
