Chapter 925: Misfortune
Mo Chuan nodded with a smile. He looked over the box and the smile on the corner of his lips couldn’t help expanding.
“Ning’er, I’m afraid you’ll lose again. You can’t escape those two cups of wine.” He said with a smile.
“I haven’t guessed yet, how do you know I’ll lose…..Ah, this is the Eldest Princess’ gift!” Chen Ning looked at it and the writing on the box was very heroic, just like that of a man’s. This was the Eldest Princess’ handwriting.
The Eldest Princess’ thoughts were simply as hard as Chu Shao Bai’s to guess, so she really was about to lose.
Who would know what kind of gift the Eldest Princess would give!
Chen Ning raised the gift box and suddenly felt it sink in her hands. She quickly used force so the box didn’t fall to the ground.
This present didn’t look too big and it was around a square foot, but it was heavy. She shook it and there was no sound that came from the box. It was clear that the present completely took up the space inside the box which made her even more curious.
“Mo Chuan, you’re right, I can’t guess it.” She sighed in frustration.
“Then just casually give a guess. The Eldest Princess’ mind, even I as her royal brother can’t guess it. Who knows what they girl would give, so if you guess wrong, I’ll drink these two cups for you.” Mo Chuan smiled as he rubbed her head, comforting her.
He didn’t want her to be drunk, he would rather have himself be drunk.
“Alright, I’ll just casually guess since you’re taking this punishment for me.” She tilted her head and turned her eyes as she said with a smile, “Then I’ll guess. There must be that sword that never leaves the Eldest Princess in here.”
“No, a sword is a weapon, how could the Eldest Princess give it as a gift?” Mo Chuan shook his head.
“Wouldn’t we know just by opening it and looking at it?”
Chen Ning smiled as he placed the box on the table. The box was just too heavy and her wrist were already numb after a while.
She reached out to the open the seal on the box. She placed her hand on the lid and prepared to open it.
“Eldest Princess, what present did you give the emperor?”
Ye Ting Xuan quickly followed behind the Eldest Princess, but very quickly he was thrown behind by the Eldest Princess.
But the Eldest Princess became slower as time passed until she finally stopped moving.
Ye Ting Xuan caught up panting, grabbing the Eldest Princess’ shoulder.
The Eldest Princess slowly looked up and here eyes were filled with a look of regret and fear, “Ting Xuan, I, I…..” She forcefully bit her lip.
“Speak, what misfortune did you cause.”
Ye Ting Xuan seemed much calmer than the Eldest Princess. His voice had a calming power to it that made the Eldest Princess want to purse her mouth and cry.
“Ting Xuan, I don’t dare go. Help me stop them, don’t let them open the present!” She was like a child that had made a mistake, as she held Ye Ting Xuan’s sleeve.
This was simply not like the Eldest Princess who was stronger than any man Ye Ting Xuan knew.
Ye Ting Xuan took a deep breath, “Tell me, what present did you prepare for them?”
“It’s…..It’s…..It’s……” The Eldest Princess stuttered before finally saying, “It’s a snake, a very, very poisonous snake…..”
Ye Ting Xuan didn’t dare believe his ears, “You actually…..Don’t you know the emperor is most afraid of snakes! He…..He was injured when he was bitten by a poisonous snake as a child and almost died! You’re too willful and bold. You…..You…..” His body began to tremble.
