Chapter 303: Victory, she must depend on herself
An excited glow flashed in the eyes of the youths. Looking at the eldest princess, they saw her raise the horse whip in her hand before letting it fall.
“Let the hunt begin!”
As soon as her voice fell, the fiery youths charged off like runaway horses. With a longbow on their back and riding their horses, they charged off into the forest of the hunting ground.
Chu Shao Yang was at the head of the pack. His purple robe fluttered in the wind as his jade flower horse raised the dust, disappearing in the blink of an eye.
The only three people left in the central area were the eldest princess, Ye Ting Xuan, and Chen Ning.
“That stinky brat, running off without even waiting for you! He really deserves to die!” The eldest princess angrily waved her whip. Staring in the direction that Chu Shao Yang ran off to, her heart was filled with grievances for Chen Ning.
She wanted to repay Chen Ning and that’s why she came up with this method for them to make up, but she never thought that it would fail like this.
Seeing Chu Shao Yang ignore Chen Ning like this, she felt broken hearted. She was afraid that Chen Ning would be hurt, so she grabbed Chen Ning’s hands and said, “Ning’er, you should go into the forest with me and Ting Xuan. We’ll take care of you.”
Chen Ning shook her head with a smile and said, “Eldest princess, it’s better if you go with husband Ye alone. If I win the hunt, people will say that the princess is bias and favouring me.”
She mounted her date red horse. With a kick of her legs, the date red horse charged after the crowd, charging into the forest.
This was a large forest with dense trees and many plants, it was a good place to hunt.
She was lagging behind the crowd. When she entered the forest, the youths charging into the forest had already disappeared.
With shaded ground and the trees covering the sky, it was like she was the only person in the world.
Chen Ning casually took the bow on the horse’s back and then took out a golden arrow. There was a bronze band casted on the arrow that had a “Ning” letter on it.
Spring was the season when animals began coming out and adding in the fact that the hunting ground was filled with animals, there were all kinds of rabbits, pheasants, and all kinds of other small animals that could be seen.
She was not in a hurry to shoot prey and just leisurely rode her horse through the forest.
The competition lasted for eight hours, so she had a lot of time to spare.
Chu Shao Bai indeed did not make it back in time for the hunting competition to help her. Chen Ning knew that something must have delayed him, but it was a good thing she already thought of a way for her to win.
She even rejected Mo Chuan’s offer of secretly helping her.
If she was going to win, she had to depend on herself to win in a fabulous manner!
“Idiot! She hasn’t even gotten a rabbit and she wants to win against this king? In your dreams!”
A sudden burst of horse hooves sound rang out and the jade flower horse disappeared as fast as lightning. On the back of a horse, the handsome youth’s purple robe fluttered in the wind. It was Chu Shao Yang.
His horse’s butt was covered in all kinds of prey, ranging from rabbits, pheasants, and does.
Each piece of prey had a white feathered arrow coming from it that had a “Yang” character engraved on it.
He coldly looked at Chen Ning before pushing his horse past her without any hesitation.
Everyone praised him for being the God of Arrows. He had only entered the forest for a while and he had a full harvest, so much that even his horse could not carry it all.
Chen Ning knew that he had returned to the hunting grounds with his prey, but she revealed a wide smile.
She believed in her horse and pushed deep into the forest. She saw a giant tree not far ahead of her that was at least two person wide. On its straight trunk it was covered in little blue flowers.
She urged her horse closer and reached out to pluck one, but she suddenly heard a sharp cry coming from behind her.
