“ Before, she was always running rampant, acting arrogantly like a peacock. Now she doesn’t even dare to leave her room and reveal her face.”
“It serves her right! I’ve always hated her attitude. Now I doubt that the Crown Prince will marry a woman covered in pockmarks!”
Zhao Yunxi laughed, pleased. She truly hated Li Yuyue’s high and mighty attitude, swaggering around the city.
Baili Hongzhuang had a faint smile on her face and didn’t speak.
“This is already His Highness’s second engagement. If this one is canceled as well, then…”
Shao Zifan looked distracted. If this got out to the public, the Crown Prince would be reduced to a joke.
If the engagement was canceled again and they needed to find another woman to become the Crown Princess, then…… His Highness’s marriages would be viewed as a funny tale for all of Feng Bo country to hear.
Thinking of this, everyone couldn’t help but look at Baili Hongzhuang, secretly sighing with regret. “His Highness truly had no eyes!”
Not long after, Xuanyuan Huan arrived at Tianxiang Trading Commerce.
But when he entered the hall, Xuanyuan Huan felt as if everyone was looking at him strangely.
His normally proud and arrogant face was currently a little helpless.
First, he wasn’t able to get first in the hunting competition. Now, there was a problem with his fiancee.
Before he came, he had overheard his parents discussing whether or not to once again cancel the engagement, making him feel very powerless.
He really had no idea why he had such bad luck!
Nothing was going in his favor!
The originally loud crowd suddenly became quiet.
Baili Hongzhuang looked at the auction hall. The bright lounge was enough to house hundreds of people with room to spare, arranged to display a quiet yet refined elegance. A single look could tell that the decor, although valuable, wasn’t the least bit overwhelming.
That, was where the auction would be held.
“Wait a bit for me, I’m going to the treasure room.” Baili Hongzhuang suddenly spoke.
Shao Zifan looked at Baili Hongzhuang, surprised. “You’re going to sell something?”
Baili Hongzhuang smiled faintly and nodded, “Right.”
“Although you can bring items to sell in the auction before it starts, selling it now, it would only be able to make the next auction. You can’t catch the current one.”
“It doesn’t matter. I’m just going to look around.”
Baili Hongzhaung still smiled. If they didn’t accept the treasure, it’d be because it didn’t have enough value.
If it was worth enough, even if it was too late, they would still devise some way to let you sell it in the auction.
Seeing Baili Hongzhuang enter the treasure room anyways, Shao Zifan and Zhao Yunxi glanced at each other before shrugging.
Baili Hongzhuang entered the treasure room and saw an elderly 60 something old man, his hand propping his chin as he slept. His head moved from time to time but never fell onto the desk.
“Senior.” Baili Hongzhuang called out.
But the senior was clearly still sound asleep. Baili Hongzhuang’s voice wasn’t enough to wake him.
Baili Hongzhuang raised her voice, calling again.
The old man was awoken by the noise, his chin knocking heavily on the table.
“Aiya!” The old man rubbed his chin, panting with rage as he spoke, “Who interrupted this old man’s sleep?”
Baili Hongzhuang smiled, “Senior, I came to sell something.”
