Dai Zhiman took a seat. This was her first time participating in the Tianxiang Auction with a first class seat.
At first, she was very excited. But when she thought about Baili Hongzhuang in her VIP box, she felt a burst of anger. How could that woman be able to get a VIP box!
At that time, as one of the Imperial City’s cultivators who took Azure Water School’s exam and passed, her future was limitless.
This was her first time coming back, so she thought that she would become the center of attention. But no, everyone was talking about Baili Hongzhuang instead!
Asking around a little, she was astonished. How could Baili Hongzhuang get Azure Water School’s invitation letter?
As Azure Water School’s student, she clearly understood just how significant an invitation letter was. But, that only made her feel even more jealous!
And the thing she couldn’t stand the most…… was that Baili Hongzhuang was actually married to Dibei Chen!
How could that be!
Baili Hongzhuang picked up the auction’s catalog. Earlier, she’d never even got to take a look. So now, she just wanted to see if there was anything she wanted in the auction.
At this moment, Zhao Yunxi inspected Baili Hongzhuang’s face and suddenly spoke: “Baili Hongzhuang, do you know why Dai Zhiman was so intent on attacking you?”
Baili Hongzhuang raised her eyebrow, “Because I got Azure Water School’s invitation letter?”
Zhao Yunxi nodded but then shook her head, “That’s only one reason. There’s another reason for her hate.”
A touch of confusion fell into her eyes, black like a deep pond. Other than that, she didn’t know why Dai Zhiman would suddenly pick a fight with her ah.
Shao Zifan immediately thought about Zhao Yunxi’s words, and his face immediately turned a bit helpless.
“What is it?” Baili Hongzhuang asked.
“In the past, Dai Zhiman liked Dibei Chen.”
The words rang still. Baili Hongzhuang widened her eyes in shock. She thought of many possibilities, but never believed that it’d be because of that!
Dibei Chen, Dai Zhiman actually liked Dibei Chen?
“Even though both of Chen Wangye’s legs are crippled, many women inside the Imperial City still admire Dibei Chen. After all, a man with such beauty and grace is truly rare in the world.”
“Originally, the Emperor had intended to betroth Dai Zhiman to Chen Wangye, especially since everybody knew that she liked him. But in the end, Chen Wangye refused.”
“Over the past 3 years, the emperor had been constantly finding marriage canidates for Chen Wangye, but Chen Wangye didn’t agree once.”
Zhao Yunxi looked at Baili Hongzhuang, her face somewhat strange, “But then when Prime Minister Li proposed the idea to betroth you to Chen Wangye, he actually agreed!”
That was something almost nobody could believe.
Until now, Chen Wangye always refused to get married, tactfully declining the Emperor and paying no mind.
But with Baili Hongzhuang, Dibei Chen not only did agree but even dared to offend the General’s Household and made a big display of sending the betrothal gifts just to have the perfect wedding with Baili Hongzhuang.
From this, it was obvious that Dibei Chen truly loved Baili Hongzhuang.
With such a big gap, how could Dai Zhiman accept it?
Baili Hongzhuang’s eyes twinkled with astonishment. Seeing Shao Zifan nod along, she knew that everything was true.
It seems that she was disdained because of Dibei Chen’s charm ah. Women in the Imperial City just loved him too much.
“So it’s like that.” Baili Hongzhuang smiled.
“But, now at least there’s proof that Chen Wangye really has great taste,”
Zhao Yunxi looked at Baili Hongzhuang. At first, she couldn’t understand why Dibei Chen ignored the other girls and chose trash instead.

Thank you for chapter 🙂 I kinda miss cute interactions between Baili Hongzhuang and Dibei Chen.
Thank you for the chapter!!!
Thanks for this chapter. I missed DC when is he back?
I’ll be glad when Dibei Chen returns. Hongzhuan should not have to face all these problems without him. This young lady Dai Zhiman is a bit much.She has started her death march already.She should mind her own relationships.
Thanks for the chapter!
Thanks for the chapter 💜
Thanks for the chapter. I kinda miss Dibei Chen. Wonder when he will show up.
Thank you for the chapter. I like that the author slipped him into the conversation, even if she won’t bring him back into the story just yet. Many things happen because of him, but with that, we needn’t actually see him for a while yet.
duh, our Chen has the best taste there is, only her can match him under the heavens
I also miss Dibei Chen and wondering when Hongzhuang will open her heart n admit she loves him 😔😔😔
