Chapter 711 The Empress Regnant’s Enchanting Consort (43)
Feng Ling was happy that Bai Weiwei still loved her.
After getting dressed, she was immediately sent to the ceremony.
Bai Weiwei, wearing a red robe, had her hair combed into a bun and held together by a simple jade pin. Her face was not powdered, but she still looked beautiful enough to be the center of attention
Feng Ling looked at her in surprise. “Weiwei, did you finally decide to forgive me?”
Bai Weiwei looked at the time.
Feng Yunian’s inspection would end and he might be back tonight.
The side task had to be resolved quickly.
Not bothering to look at Feng Ling, she fiercely grabbed her wrist and dragged her over to immediately finish the conferral ceremony.
The newlyweds were in a rush to get married.
The empress had given her orders: the sooner, the better.
In a quarter of an hour, there would be an extra box of gold1. The empress was as impatient as though there was a pair of wind-and-fire wheels under her feet2.
This was the fastest conferral ceremony in history.
Many were intrigued.
The empress wanted to establish her consort quickly and the jovial ceremony was solemn, to be completed with two bows.
Feng Ling panted, “Weiwei, I didn’t think you were so impatient!”
Bai Weiwei expressionlessly agreed: “Haha, very impatient.”
Impatient to dump you.
At last, the magistrate exclaimed: “Wife and wife bow to each other.”
Bai Weiwei quickly pulled Feng Ling’s head and bowed her own, creating an illusion that they bowed to each other.
The magistrate smiled, “Send the bride to the bridal chamber!”
Bai Weiwei trembled, “There is still a bridal chamber?”
System: “Let me check.”
Bai Weiwei: “What will you check? What will two women do in a bridal chamber together? Go to the kitchen and grab some cucumbers?”
【Ding! The side task is complete. In response to the fundamental policy of keeping away a yellow environment3, the bridal chamber will be censored4.】
Bai Weiwei sighed and touched her face, “It’s not easy being a beauty.”
System: It also understood what it was like to be a handsome beauty.
Feng Ling shyly glanced at her and gripped her sleeve, “Weiwei, we are now wife and wife.”
She knew that Weiwei had a sharp tongue but a soft heart5, but she, nonetheless, loved her very much.
Bai Weiwei nearly flung her off.
The sound of the horses’ hooves rumbled and shook the ground and the iron troops emerged as though from hell. They broke the door down and entered6 with a murderous spirit.
Bai Weiwei was taken aback. A rebellion?
Among the black horses, a white horse distinctively stood out.
Feng Yunian sat on the horse, his inky eyes like bottomless pits.
He lowered his head, and his eyes fell on Feng Ling, who stood behind Bai Weiwei, holding her sleeve.
At that moment, his heart seemed to have been crushed completely. The sharp pain rushed through his body and he felt like his brain could burst. All the goodness of the past crumbled away like dust.
There was nothing but bitterness and a bit of love left.
Gnawing at him.
All Bai Weiwei could think of was f*ck when she looked at him. He came back too early and at the wrong moment.
Feng Yunian sat on the horse and stared at the two with silence on his face.
The gaze of catching an adulterous pair!
Bai Weiwei responded immediately, “Listen to me, it’s not what it looks like.”
Feng Yunian got off his horse and walked over. He smiled, “Don’t worry Your Majesty, I know everything.”
Bai Weiwei felt that his smile was wrong. She tried to explain, “I treat her…”
He suddenly grabbed her hand harshly.
Bai Weiwei noticed the man whose calm eyes were brooding with anger.
Feng Yunian’s words were filled with an infinite coldness. “I know she’s your true love and I am just a disgusting substitute.”
When did he find out?
That wasn’t the point.
Bai Weiwei promptly changed her expression to an affectionate one. “No, you…” are wrong.
Her mouth was agape and she suddenly blacked out, falling in Feng Yunian’s arms.
He embraced her with red eyes and maliciously turned towards Feng Ling.
“Clear this place and kill everyone who participated in the empress conferral ceremony.”
He would not let go, even if he had to burn every jade and stone7.
He would be the only one.
