Wife, You Can't Run After Eating - Chapter 22
Does this mean reward?
Feng Zhiyao’s expression was stagnant. Does this mean that she can propose the idea of having a joyful night with a beautiful man as a reward?
When she turned around, she slowly raised her head and took a glance at Xuanyuan Haofei who had a purple and gold crown tied into his hair. His already handsome face became even more imposing when he wore the luxurious brocade.
“Is Yao’er afraid to stay here to face me because you’ve received my annulment letter? Or is it because of the other people? Or did you not want to stay here and appreciate the Epiphyllum flowers with everyone because you are trying to put the blame on Qiong’er? Wouldn’t this look bad on Qiong’er?” His cold words were full of ridicule!
Xuanyuan Haofei had an arrogant posture and his thin lips pursed slightly which made his handsome features appear even more phoenix-like, making him more awe-inspiring and inviolable.
At this moment, he was no longer the Xuanyuan Haofei who was friendly to everyone. Instead, he was the emperor’s seventh son who had been endowed with unique advantages and incomparable dignity!
Bastard, it was you who wanted to break off the engagement which forced the original Feng Zhiyao to die. Okay?!
And now he’s actually pushing all the blame onto her!
Feng Zhiyao slightly lowered her eyelashes, her expression appeared frosty!
“Feng Zhiyao, is it that you are too embarrassed to stay?” Xuanyuan Lingxi thought of the last grievance she experienced and quickly took the opportunity to taunt Feng Zhiyao.
“Seventh brother, don’t embarrass her anymore. She just had the engagement annulment letter handed to her in person. Why bother being so aggressive now!” The white-clothed young man, who had been drinking tea with his friend, couldn’t stand it anymore; he tried to persuade him to stop. He looked about one or two years older than Feng Zhiyao.
“Eighteenth brother!” Xuanyuan Haofei only harshly called out the ranking of the white-clothed man and ignored him.
Feng Zhiyao looked over at the white-clothed man who was called the ‘Eighteenth brother’, and she couldn’t help but be shocked!
He was wearing white clothes that curled like a tree of jade with green mountains and water, full of the essence of heaven and earth. He was like a Kunlun jade1, falling in the southeast corner of China, that exuded a touch of brilliance.
As expected, he was an authentic royal product. Such a fine product!
Such a beautiful young man. Feng Zhiyao couldn’t help but appear stupefied! However, a few moments later, a discordant voice rang in her ears again.
“What, are you scared?” Xuanyuan Lingxi saw that her eighteenth elder brother, Xuanyuan Haoyun, was doing her a disservice and immediately glared at him. She still pulled the topic back to Feng Zhiyao.
“You really want me to stay? Okay, then tell me what type of reward can you use to get me to stay and compete with you?” Feng Zhiyao’s words were light but it also made Feng Zhiqiong, Xuanyuan Lingxi, and Beitang Zixuan almost wanted to blow their tops off.
The atmosphere suddenly became tense!
“Eldest Miss!” Ziyun voiced, slightly frightened. She now understood that the Second Miss did this all to come for the Eldest Miss! How shameless. She snatched the Eldest Miss’s fiance and now she’s gathering people together to bully the Eldest Miss. This is no longer acceptable. But how is it that the Eldest Miss’s face showed no signs of nervousness at all?
It was truly like an emperor who was in no hurry while the eunuch was anxious to death!
Feng Zhiyao just smiled with her charming eyebrows and her eyes fell upon Xuanyuan Haofei’s handsome face. However, the words she spoke addressed Feng Zhiqiong, “Meimei, What do you think we should compete with? Piano, chess, calligraphy, or painting? Or do you want to do poetry?” It seemed like the ancient people played with these types of little things?
Her face clearly had a light and moving smile, but the ridicule in her words was like a sharp sword made of crushed ice, stabbing straight into Feng Zhiqiong’s heart.
“Jiejie, are you agreeing to stay?” Feng Zhiqiong wanted to attack back, but when she thought about the finale of her plan, she smiled gracefully. This caused others to really think she was genuinely being friendly.
“It’s just this reward from his Royal Highness Prince Qi. Can you specify what it is?” Ugh, she didn’t want to waste her brain cells. She had to make extra money anyway.
“I haven’t seen the Eldest Miss of the Prime Minister’s family in so many days. You really have become admirable.” Beitang Zixuan commented word for word. She didn’t expect that she, with a big chest and no brain, would be so arrogant. It’s as if the knowledgeable people/educated people aren’t worth her attention. Okay then, don’t blame her, Beitang Zixuan, for not showing any mercy to her!
Beitang Zixuan’s words finally drew Feng Zhiyao’s attention to take a good look at her. She did look good and is a beauty. It’s just too bad that she’s way too thin. Compared that with Feng Zhiyaos’s siren-like, voluptuous figure, it’s like a difference between heaven and earth.
Tsk, isn’t it just the ‘top talented lady’ that the old emperor himself appointed? No wonder, she was so confident. Fine, if you want to compete, then let’s do it. Just don’t pee your pants later when you lose!
Xuanyuan Haoyun glanced at Beitang Zixuan and secretly sighed. She underestimated the enemy too much. It can be said that she had already lost her momentum!
When Wen Xingyuan heard Beitang Zixuan’s sarcasm, he knit his eyebrows. It could be said that he watched Zixuan grow up. He had a good idea of her talents and her capabilities. An average lady is probably not her opponent, but Feng Zhiyao…it’s hard to say!
Li Minshan gave Feng Zhiyao a confident smile, with encouragement in his eyes. He was looking forward to seeing this battle between the first beauty and the first talented woman!
“Hmph. Don’t lose too ugily when the time comes!” Su Muyan snorted coldly, and the contempt in his eyes was even worse. In his heart, he had been blaming Feng Zhiqiong for inviting Feng Zhiyao which really disappointed him.
“Zixuan, you’re the first talented woman personally appointed by the emperor. Don’t take this opportunity to bully others!” Beitang Ziqian was quite proud of the name his little sister had received. Although he seemed like he was scolding her, he was actually insinuating that Feng Zhiyao would lose.
“Big Brother, I’m not! Right? Eldest Miss?” Beitang Zixuan had a warm smile on her face.
Feng Zhiyao nodded when she heard her words and smiled silently. It’s just who’s actually bullying who?
After a while, she noticed that the Prince of Qi didn’t say anything——
“I dare to ask your highness, Prince Qi. What is the reward?” Seeing Feng Zhiqiong’s lips slightly raise, Feng Zhiyao guessed something internally. This was the “Hongmen Banquet” set up by Feng Zhiqiong! She deliberately redirected the conversation to the issue of the reward again!
However, since she was already here, she will courageously face this challenge. No one can make her feel threatened in this world!
“Eldest Miss, if you lose, wouldn’t it look bad on your reputation?” Beitang Zixuan remembered that her looks aren’t that bad either, it’s just that she was only awarded the first talented woman title while Feng Zhiyao is only a good-looking girl. Her piano, chess, calligraphy, painting, poetry, and singing skills can’t compete with her, so Beitang Zixuan always looked down on Feng Zhiyao.
“How do you know that I will lose? Or are you afraid of competing with me?” Feng Zhiyao sighed and then came straight for Beitang Zixuan!
What’s wrong with these people? Do they want to compete or not?
“Zixuan jiejie, you should compete with Feng Zhiyao on behalf of all of us!” Xuanyuan Lingxi immediately looked down and smiled sinisterly. She feared that the world wouldn’t be chaotic.
“This king will give you a thousand silver notes! This is really good for your winning prize!” Xuanyuan Haofei wasn’t as aggressive as he was before, and his tone relaxed slightly.
“It’s too vulgar to just have the reward to be just one thousand silver notes! Why don’t we add some more rewards?” Li Minshan smiled radiantly and took off a delicately carved token off of his waist.
“Soul Chasing Order? Brother Li, such a big reward? Isn’t it too much!” Beitang Ziqian looked shocked at what Li Minshan was holding in his hands.
What was the Soul Chasing Order? It can give immorality!
As long as the order to capture souls is issued by the soul seizing manor, even if the person being hunted down is dead, he must be dug up with great difficulty. Of course this is a bit exaggerated, but it also illustrated the horror of this soul-chasing order!
When Feng Zhiyao heard the three words: “Soul Chasing Order”, she couldn’t help but frown!
Ahhhhhhhhhh! Can she just ask him to change the reward? For example, if she wins, let him, the handsome Li, accompany her to XXOO for a night.
