Chapter 186 – Confrontation at the scene (3)
Su Zian thought that Beichen Ying was referring to the crown prince and Su Xi’s matter. A smile appeared on his solemn and cold face: “Indeed, I’m indebted to His Highness the crown prince’s undeserving kindness, this really is Xi’er’s fortune.”
Who knew that Beichen Ying would frown, he was used to speaking directly and annoyedly said, “What does this have to do with the crown prince?”
“Huh?” Su Zian stared blankly at him.
Before, he had said he would achieve meteoric success, could it be that he was not referring to the crown prince and Su Xi’s matter? Then….what could it be?
Beichen Ying placatingly clapped Su Zian’s shoulder: “The number one person in the capital, did you forget who it is?”
“Jin, His Highness Prince Jin?” Su Zian subconsciously blurted it out. His speech even begin to stammer.
But after speaking this sentence, he immediately felt that something was not quite right. Because in this great hall, the person seated at the highest position was His Highness the crown prince…
The crown prince had always been secretly competing with His Highness Prince Jin. Although everyone knew that every quality he had couldn’t be compared to His Highness Prince Jin, nobody dared to say this to his face.
For a moment, Su Zian saw His Highness crown prince’s complexion turn dark in an instant, his regret made his intestines turn green.
Madam Su saw that the atmosphere was amiss, and she hurriedly stepped out to resolve the embarrassment. She smiled in a sweet-tempered manner and softly spoke, “The Venerable Beichen Ying really likes to crack jokes. His Highness Prince Jin and our Su Manor never had any dealings. Don’t know which family’s good news you are congratulating about?”
His Highness Prince Jin was placed on a pedestal, he was like an exiled immortal from the nine layers of heaven. Ordinary people could only profane him.
Su Manor always had a clear view of things and knew it was hard to become his Highness Prince Jin’s follower. Therefore in this world, they could only follow in His Highness the crown prince’s footsteps.
With just this one sentence by Madam Su, she clearly stated that there was no relationship between Su Manor and His Highness Prince Jin.
Also because of this, His Highness the crown prince’s complexion, which was as black as the bottom of a pot, gradually started to recover. Even though it was still stiff, but it was not as ruthless as before.
However, it seemed as if Beichen Ying had enmity towards His Highness the crown prince.
From the time he entered until now, he didn’t even bother to say hello to the crown prince. He completely took the empire’s crown prince as invisible. Considering Beichen Ying’s mysterious and terrifying family background, His Highness the crown prince could only suffer this humiliation and swallow it.
Beichen Ying faintly smiled and cast a quick glance at the crown prince. He turned his head towards Su Zian and smiled, “The Great General Su, Madam Su, your news is really lacking. Could it be that you don’t know His Highness Prince Jin, towards a Miss in your family…”
His gaze swept around, seeing everyone’s interest and attention was hooked by him. It seemed as if Beichen Ying had let something slip, and giving a few ‘hey hey’ dry laughing sounds, “Chuckle, chuckle, chuckle, cannot say, cannot say…The mysteries of the heavens must not be revealed.”
Even though he stopped the conversation in time, however, the first half of the sentence was obviously enough of a hint.
His Highness Prince Jin towards a Miss in your family…in addition to Beichen Ying’s congratulating left and right. What did this signify? Surely even an idiot hearing it could understand.
Could it really be true? Su Zian and Madam Su’s heart momentarily rose to their throat.
If His Highness Prince Jin really fell in love with their daughter, how great a fortune was that? Capable of enticing his Highness Prince Jin, for Su Manor it was simply like reaching heaven in a single bound!
Su Zian became excited.
Madam Su also became excited.
Consequently, both of their eyes simultaneously landed on Su Qing standing at the side.
The second Miss from the Su family was born from the first wife, her status was honorable and she was absolutely beautiful to look at. Even more hard to come by was that she was amazingly gifted. Her cultivation speed in the entire Eastern Ling Empire’s younger generation was among the top five.
What was more, Su Qing was a disciple of Grandmaster Lan Hai.
