The young kid nudged Su Man, who was next to him, with his hand and
smiled mischievously and asked, “Dear Bai Ye, is your heart racing? For
all you know, you might really want to hear Beauty Su confess to you.”
He seemed to hear somebody’s heart racing and deliberately asked that.
While he actually should not be blamed for being less of a friend, such a
situation was indeed extremely rare to come by. When did one see Bai Ye
secretly plant his ear against the wall? That was a first.
When did one hear Beauty Su confess? That was as impossible as pigs
flying. The young kid hence pricked his ears, afraid of missing even the
slightest of the juicy conversation that followed.
Bai Ye doped-slapped him and wanted to pull him back by his collar. As
though planting his ear against the wall to eavesdrop was not
embarrassing enough, he was being this openly teased by the young kid.
Bai Ye’s clean image was instantly tarnished, and he hence decided to
go the whole nine yards.
“You’d better laugh as gently as you can. I will murder you if Su Man
hears it.” Bai Ye gave a gesture and the young kid smiled even more
mischievously. The young kid managed to make Bai Ye, a calm person, blush.
Princess Yashan did not seem to be able to get an answer, and she would
not stop until she got one. Her persistent gaze landed on Su Man. He
seemed a tad sad whilst looking at her somewhat hopefully. She was afraid
that he really loved somebody else and hoped that he did not love
While she could not wholly describe her complicated thoughts, her gaze
said it all.
She really liked him, and it was since young! She got to know Su Man, who
was distant and of few words, during a palace banquet back then. Although
Su Man was a dignified person, he was much less popular than before and
quietly sat at the furthermost corners of the room. His stunning looks
were nothing short of unique.
While many royalty and dignitaries were hoping to hit him up because of
his looks, they were intimidated by his coldness and did not dare to make
further conversation. Princess Yashan was curious as to why this youth
was so special. It was after asking her mother that she learned about the
calamity, stemming from mistakes the royal family made, that befell the
Su family and bereaved him. Despite his deep-seated grudge against the
royal family and hence hatred for them, his identity meant that he had to
avail himself, however unwillingly, for such occasions.
Princess Yashan, hoping to make up for the past, approached him. The
closer she approached him, the more she was charmed by his character. Her
heart, for all these years, was enthralled by him, and she hoped that he
would return her gaze and take pity on her so that she would get together
with him in the future.
Her parents, more likely than not to make up with Su Man, did not oppose
Princess Yashan’s attempts to get together with Su Man. Princess Yashan
patiently waited as Su Man did not actively approach women. While he did
not have any women who would threaten her by his side, she was not
worried that Su Man would fall in love with somebody and waited patiently
for the day he would see the good in her.
As she waited whilst the seasons passed, she did not see him show
feelings for her. Two other princesses who looked up to Su Man as much as
Princess Yashan did and were extremely close to the latter sarcastically
suggested that it was just her wishful thinking.
She had no intention to rebut them and allowed the rumors to flow. If it
were all true, how could she handle it? She was unwilling to allow her
feelings for him for all these years to go to naught.
“Su Man, yes or no? Is it that difficult for you to tell me that?”
Seeing how Su Man remained mum for a long time, Princess Yashan’s
hopeful gaze gave way to a sad gaze. It was extremely rare for Su Man to
not answer her.
Unless he silently admitted and that she understood in her heart, she
wanted him to be upfront about it so that she could give up on him out of
heartache. When she gave up on him, nothing else hence mattered.
“Yashan, we’ve been friends for a very long time. You’re bright
enough, and surely you can make sense of all this?” Su Man plainly said
with a slight heartache. “I’ve always thought I could help you, but I
am sorry I can’t.”
As a princess, Yashan rarely had her say in marriage as she would be
married to a royalty, either local or foreign, for an alliance. She could
never marry a commoner, and he knew that she wanted freedom.
He had thought about it and knew that he would not love anybody else.
While marrying her and giving her freedom had some good in it, he did not
thoroughly discard the idea nor call Yashan out on her intention.
It was just a shame that the best-laid plans of mice and men often went
awry. Little did he expect himself…
“Yashan, if you do not like Prince Charles, you can let the fourth
princess have him. Since His Excellency dotes on you this much, he will
not insist you marry him. You’re still young, and you will meet
somebody whom you really fancy in a few years. His Excellency will try
his best to make your wishes his command,” Su Man replied in reason.
As a cold person, Princess Yashan was the only person he cared for as a
sister. While he wanted her to live well, he could not provide it for her.
Princess Yashan smiled bitterly. Any girl who encountered somebody as
eminent as Su Man would definitely yearn after him for their whole lives.
Who else, save Su Man, could stir their hearts even more?
Like dragons and fishes, no other men could be compared side-by-side with
“Who is she?” Princess Yashan asked sadly as she bitterly thought
about who else was better than her and more worthy of Su Man’s heart.
Who exactly was she? She thought about everybody she knew and felt even
bitterer as no names came to her mind.
Su Man frowned and gently said, “You don’t know that person.”
“Who is it? I want to know!” Princess Yashan had a persistent gaze
that reflected her insistence and determination.
Given who Su Man was, nobody could force him to talk.
Princess Yashan, as though she was on the Siberian plains, felt a
chilling cold run down her heart that froze her blood over. She, who had
her whims and fancies since young, was never so badly affected.
It felt like a living hell.
She felt utterly terrible and wanted to find somewhere where she could
cry it all out. Seeing his calm face, however, stemmed her tears and
stifled her breathing despite the visible heartache and agony she
Everybody could tell how despondent Princess Yashan had become.
“Yashan…” Su Man gently said.
“Enough! Why don’t you tell me who that person is? I just want to
know where I have fallen short. I will not do anything to her, so why
don’t you tell me who she is?” Princess Yashan sadly asked and looked
at him dejectedly. A gentle grudge emanated from her brown eyes.
As though Su Man was in thought, he frowned harder and fell silent.
Seeing as he eventually did not speak, Princess Yashan laughed
hopelessly. “Su Man, are you lying to me because you deliberately want
to turn me down?”
“Absolutely no!” Su Man frowned. “I will not lie!”
Su Man would rather tell the truth at the expense of utterly
disappointing somebody than hide anything unless there were things he did
not want to say. If he spoke, he was definitely telling the truth. That
was Su Man’s strength.
Precisely because she knew that Su Man was such a person, Princess Yashan
realized that her words were so laughable to the point she could not
convince herself. If she still remained as hopeful, she would not hurt as
Her heartache would not be that suffocating.
“Since that’s the case, the questions stop with me. So be it,”
Princess Yashan closed her eyes in agony. As a princess, she had her
dignity. She closed her eyes so that others would not see her cry.
Her pride would not allow her to shed even the slightest tear before him.
“Would you still marry Charles then?” Su Man asked.
Princess Yashan gradually opened her eyes and calmly said,” I don’t
know. My feelings are in flux, and I need to really think about it.”
While she came with a hope that Su Man would be the knight in shining
armor who would free her from this grandeur cell of a palace and lead
carefree lives forever, she did not expect herself to become this
Her heart was utterly aching, and her thoughts scrambled by him. She did
not want to think about anything.
Su Man was not in a rush to find out and slowly said, “Give it some
thought and be more self-focused when making the decision. Do not force
Princess Yashan nodded and smiled bitterly. Since she was never going to
marry Su Man, then so be it. Any decision she would make from this point
would be forced, the question being how forced.
“Are you really planning on not telling me?” Princess Yashan asked in
a last-ditch attempt. “We’ve been friends for so long, and you are
still unwilling to come clean with me?”
Su Man raised his eyebrows and looked at the corner silently.
Princess Yashan finally gave up and smiled bitterly before taking a sip
of flower tea.
The young kid did not hear Beauty Su confess and was slightly
disappointed. “Bai Ye, Beauty Su did not admit his feelings for you.”
Bai Ye gently smiled. “You’re still young, you damn rascal. You’ll
know when you grow up.”
While those on the sidelines would never be as clear of these convoluted
thoughts as those in the thick of it who felt every bit of it, his heart
was clearly beating to a different beat and took a while to slow down.
Even men have their emotional weaknesses.
He jabbed the young kid’s arms and plainly said, “Time to back off
“Go back and tend to your sister,” Bai Ye said. The young kid knew
that Bai Ye wanted to speak to Su Man alone and could not help but praise
him. Damn, he quickly made sense of the situation.
Bai Ye looked at the young kid disdainfully, who then said, “Since that
princess has not left yet, why should I? I’ll hang around.”
Bai Ye gritted his teeth.
As Princess Yashan stood up and bade farewell, Su Man also stood up and
walked up to hug her. He whispered some words into Princess Yashan’s
ear, and her face suddenly changed. “How could you…” Her voice
“So… I’m sorry Yashan,” Su Man slowly said.
Princess Yashan seemed to be relieved, and then saddened. She closed her
eyes and slightly looked up to prevent her tears from falling. She
eventually opened her slightly teary eyes and congratulated him with
gritted teeth. “Be happy!”
“Thank you so much!”
Despite her immense unwillingness, she endured it and turned to walk away.
As Bai Ye hurried for the young kid to get up, the young kid suddenly
pushed Bai Ye forward. Bai Ye did not expect the young kid to pull that
off and was caught off guard. He almost knocked into Princess Yashan, who
was coming out.
Both of them were caught off guard, and the young kid gestured for him to
keep up and laughed as he went away. F***! Bai Ye gritted his teeth. He
played into the young kid’s hand again. He would settle the score with
Princess Yashan looked at Bai Ye, and then at Su Man with a weird look.
“What are you and Ning Ning doing here?” Su Man asked.
“Strolling around!” Bai Ye calmly replied.
Su Man coldly harrumphed. Given how huge the Su mansion was, it
definitely took some effort to stroll to the corner of his room to listen
Bai Ye then curtly turned toward Princess Yashan and bowed before
introducing himself and exchanging a handshake with her. They somewhat
knew each other since Bai Ye was the representative figure of the men in
the terrorist organization. He was also known as the living book of
He was well-looking and well-mannered.
While he was cold and easy-going, he was affable should he want to be
Princess Yashan formally curtseyed back and looked at him and Su Man
before smiling in relief. “Su Man, it’s okay. I’ll head back
myself. You should have a word with him. I’ll make a move first.”
“Dana will see you out,” Su Man gently replied.
“Okay!” Princess Yashan gently smiled and turned away. She secretly
sighed. To think that such a man would… That tinge of unwillingness
disappeared and she smiled. When she smiled, her pale face became less
She had lived for Su Man for so many years, and it was time she
experienced a rebirth and lived for herself. Whether she would marry
Charles, she would live well for herself.
Su Man looked at him coldly and walked inside. Bai Ye followed him, but
he did not have anything to talk about. “The seventh princess is really
beautiful,” Bai Ye randomly rambled.
“All of Arabia knows that,” Su Man gently replied. While he seemed to
be easy-going, he could not help but clench the fists below his long
sleeves and calmly sat down. He took a jade cup and got some flower tea
for Bai Ye.
“Were you looking for me?” he asked the obvious with a dull look.
Bai Ye, in deep thought, frowned and looked down. How should he begin the
question? The courage he had mustered outside did not seem to be enough
before Su Man. Bai Ye, feeling as though he was lacking his stand, was
It seemed that all the courage he had mustered, seemingly dismissed by
Beauty Su’s cold gaze, was for naught.
Su Man was also extremely patient, and this was the second person to test
his patience. A cunning smile flashed over the face that looked down, and
he already found it difficult to observe it, let alone Bai Ye.
“Su Man, what did you tell Princess Yashan earlier?” Bai Ye pondered
for a moment and gave up indirectly approaching the question and went for
the chase. Third Young Master Ye’s suggestion was to directly approach
the issue at hand.
“Didn’t you hear everything?” Su Man gently replied.
“I meant what she said before she left, what you said to her when you
hugged her.” Bai Ye’s keen observation of Princess Yashan’s face
left him guessing that he definitely told her something.
He definitely told her who she liked.
As he thought about the possibility of his guess, Bai Ye’s heart
thumped uncontrollably and he shuddered. Like men who were never nervous
until they came under fire, he experienced a nervousness he had yet to
He could not wait to hear Su Man’s answer.
“Why should I tell you?” Beauty Su coldly frowned.
Bai Ye frowned as he looked at him. Beauty Su calmly looked at him
without the slightest guilt. Bai Ye must have been dreaming to hope that
he would admit without him saying anything.
Bai Ye felt a trepidation creep up on him as Su Man looked at him
emotionlessly. Nobody, even him, had the courage to admit his feelings
Beauty Su was getting impatient from the waiting and put down the jade
cup. “I’m getting a little rest in the afternoon, so dispense with
yourself,” he gently said.
Then, he stood up and seemed to be about to return to his room. Bai Ye,
somehow muscling up his courage, suddenly grabbed Beauty Su’s arm.
Beauty Su frowned and slowly turned around and looked at him quizzically.
Bai Ye’s palms were sweating. While he had known Su Man for a long
time, the two of them rarely had physical contact. Save the few times
they had unintentional physical contact, Bai Ye still kept a distance
He tightly held onto Su Man’s hand for dear life as he gritted his
teeth and stood up, facing him. One could not tell that Bai Ye was taller
than Su Man unless they stood close to each other.
He was giving it all.
Bai Ye looked into Su Man’s eyes and calmly asked, “Su Man, do you
Su Man, not expecting such a bashful person to become this forthcoming
this suddenly, was caught off guard. He was expecting Bai Ye to take his
time. None of the ways he considered were able to address the sudden
question popped before him.
He was, for a moment, a little taken aback.
Although Su Man was used to managing how nervous he was and making out
how the situation developed, the situation at hand was a little
unexpected. He had ways to manage Bai Ye and also have Bai Ye take the
This was a slight exception.
Beauty Su, in that instant, could not think of anything to say. He was
calm as usual and this was no exception. While he was slightly taken
aback, he recovered his cool and slowly said, “Why the question?”
Bai Ye gritted his teeth and looked at him dangerously, hoping to tease
out the slightest unease or same nervousness in his gaze. It was to no
Bai Ye was a little flustered. He already asked as such, and he dared to
ask him what he meant?!
This pretty mouth said the things that left people utterly aghast.
Actions, perhaps, would better express his thoughts…
Bai Ye’s parched throat gulped.
It was perhaps the fragrance of the flowers, or the charming beauty of
the person before him that left Bai Ye in a trance. Bai Ye suddenly
hugged Su Man’s waist and pulled him back before turning sideways and
suddenly kissing him on his lips…
