“Big Brother Ji, were you mad at me?”
A flattering smile bloomed on Baili Hongzhuang’s face as she walked over to face Ji Wenbin.
Since she’s come here, the first person to treat her with kindness was Ji Wenbin.
She didn’t want to let such a thing to ruin their relationship. Those who sent help in one’s hour of need must always be treated seriously.
“How could I dare be mad at you?” Ji Wenbin’s cold voice revealed a trace of dissatisfaction.
“Big Brother Ji!” Baili Hongzhaung called out, “You should also know that I was in a special situation at that time. I was grounded by the General, so if I used my real name, it’d become very disadvantageous. I could only use an alias.”
“Apart from this, I’ve never done anything to deceive you.”
Ji Wenbin still didn’t say anything. When he had heard the news earlier today, he had nearly jumped out of his skin in shock. He never thought the friend he was so proud of would’ve actually lied to him.
“Since Big Brother Ji doesn’t want to see me, I’ll leave first.”
Baili Hongzhaung’s face turned sad and lonely as she turned to walk toward the doors. But in her heart, she secretly counted.
“Wait!” Ji Wenbin’s voice rang out as he sighed helplessly. “I know your situation was forced.”
When he had first found out about Baili Hongzhaung’s lies, he was terribly angry. But then when he calmed down and thought about it, he felt that she really did have her own difficulties.
Then as he listened to her words, his resentment melted away, leaving only worry and concern for Baili Hongzhuang.
“Hehe.” Baili Hongzhaung smiled happily, “I knew Big Brother Ji was highly principled, and could understand my plight!”
Ji Wenbin couldn’t be as happy as Baili Hongzhaung, “I heard you and Prince Chen would be married in a month’s time. Is this the truth?”
“Why did the Emperor grant the marriage so abruptly?”
“Because His Majesty was unhappy with me!”
Baili Hongzhaung smiled. She was unflattering in the Emperor’s eyes, so it was only reasonable to marry her off to Dibei Chen.
“So then, are you really willing to marry Dibei Chen?”
Other people might not know, but Ji Wenbin knew clearly that Baili Hongzhaung and Dibei Chen were both very familiar with each other.
Before, he had seen Dibei Chen sevral times in Godly Doctor Square. Was it him who asked the Emperor for the engagement?
“I think Dibei Chen isn’t bad.” Baili Hongzhuang laughed lightly, “At least, a lot more reliable than Xuanyuan Huan.”
Even if Ji Wenbin decided to speak more useless words, what could he do? After all, this was the Emperor who laid down the decree.
But he still couldn’t help but ask. He wanted to make sure Baili Hongzhuang didn’t regret her decision.
“Decided.” Baili Hongzhaung’s voice was quiet , but firm.
Baili Hongzhuang bought a large pile of herbs in Ten-thousand Medicine Lane. Since opening Godly Doctor Square, her business was thriving and she no longer had to calculate and confirm which herbs she needed to get.
Watching Baili Hongzhaung buy so many herbs at once, Ji Wenbin was puzzled, “Hongzhaung, what are you doing with so many herbs?”
Baili Hongzhuang smiled, “It’s a secret, I have some stuff to do.”
Ji Wenbin couldn’t help but laugh, dumbfounded. Baili Hongzhuang was intentionally acting mysterious, provoking his curiosity. He no longer continued to ask.
Putting all the medicine into the Heaven and Earth bags, Baili Hongzhuang left for Heavenly Jewel Pavilion.
Heavenly Jewel Pavilion was the largest shop in the Imperial City for all things cultivation. It’s size was incomparable to others.
This was a place only the rich could go.
