Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-256
Zuo Shangchen’s lips held a touch of a smile, his indolent manner
wrapped around the back of his head, his beautiful eyes shot a glance at
the blushing Xiang’er, and lazily opened his mouth, ” This prince enjoys
taking up two seats for himself.”
What he really meant was, he wanted to take up two seats in a table for
four, and there was no space for her now.
Unfortuately, Xiang’er did not understand what Zuo Shangchen had meant.
She observed the smile on the man before her, thinking that he had a good
impression on her, and her heart began beating happily. Her eyes shot a
glance at Gu Ruoyun who was seated next to Pang Ran and said, “Excuse me,
miss. May I have a seat? I am the daughter of the Prime Minister. If you
would give me your seat, I will give you as much gold as you want!”
She thought that the plainly dressed woman who came with Pang Ran must
certainly be the kind of woman who has sold herself in order to curry
favor with influential officials. Such a disgusting woman simply isn’t
fit to sit with me! She thought. If it were not for the sake of
maintaining a good impression on the Fourth Prince of Vermillion Bird
Country, she would have ordered someone to kick her out long ago!
As for the reason behind Zuo Shangchen’s visit, she believed that it
was because of Pang Ran, seeing as he was the Sixth Prince of Black
Tortoise Country, having some form of acquaintance with Zuo Shangchen
would make sense.
Gu Ruoyun tapped her finger, her pure and delicate face filled with a
smile, “It’s not that I won’t let you have my seat, but the price of
it is quite high.”
“Name your price. I will pay it.”
A scornful glint flashed across Xiang’er’s expression. I was right, she
thought, this woman has no shame, she would sell her body for a small
Ironically, Xiang’er had completely forgotten that she herself had
approached them after hearing about Zuo Shangchen’s identity. If Zuo
Shangchen were not the Fourth Prince of Vermillion Bird Country, she
would have arrogantly decided that the latter was not fit to even speak
“As long as you can pay the price, I will sell this seat to you.” Gu
Ruoyun put down her teacup, her clear, beautiful, smiling eyes observed
Xiang’er’s disdainful expression, she nodded her head and said, “The
price of this seat, is a country! If you can present me with a country as
a gift, then I will sell it to you. This is still considered as
friendship price, otherwise, I would not sell it to you for even one
Xiang’er’s expression changed greatly. The nerve of this woman, she
thought angrily, opening her mouth to ask for a whole country, this is
considered friendship price? Friendship my little sister!
“Miss, you’ve treated me in such a way, despite my good intentions.”
Taking a deep breath, Xiang’er clenched her hand into a fist. Her
snow-white complexion exhibiting clear fury, “Are you not sitting with
His Royal Highness, Pang Ran, the Sixth Prince of our Black Tortoise
Country for the purpose of obtaining glory, splendor, wealth, and rank?
Why pretend to be noble and virtuous in front of everyone? I will give
you one thousand pieces of gold, now give this seat to me! You’ll never
earn so much money in your life if you do not rely on the Sixth Prince.”
This woman is such a fake! Xiang’er thought. If she were not a woman
who coveted riches, she would never have taken a fancy to a
good-for-nothing like Pang Ran! At the end of the day, Pang Ran is the
Emperor’s favorite, so if she could become the Sixth Prince’s wife,
wouldn’t she be enjoying endless splendor and riches?
It seems that I would have to speak to my father about this. A cunning
and unlawful woman is scheming on getting close to the Sixth Prince. Let
father remind His Imperial Majesty, lest the naturally naïve Sixty
Prince be discarded in circles around a woman with such intentions.
However, upon Jin Xiang’er’s words, the faces of the two men turned
Pang Ran angrily slammed his hand on the table, his eyes spitting with
rage. Gu Ruoyun was a great benefactor to him, and he would never allow
anyone to insult her innocence.
“Little sister” mentioned by Xiang’er is actually the Chinese equivalent
of “Pussy”. I used “little sister” because I figured that a refined lady
like Xiang’er probably wouldn’t actually use such language.
