But then, he heard two decisive words.
Shangguan Qi picked his ears and looked at Hexi in disbelief, “Third Miss, did you not hear my question clearly just now?”
Hexi smiled slowly.
Her facial features weren’t outstanding usually. When she smiled, her eyes became brighter than the stars and clearer than the crystals. However, there was a touch of coldness in her eyes.
Hexi casually said, “Your Highness is so young, but your ears already **. I said that I don’t want to marry you as a concubine. Do you hear clearly this time?”
“You–!!!” Shangguan Qi’s face suddenly became gloomy.
The other people in the room also dropped their jaws, and they were speechless for a long time.
Shangguan Qi suppressed the raging anger in his mind, and he asked in a deep voice, “Nalan Hexi, you are just a concubine’s daughter in the Nalan Mansion area. I’m the crown prince of the Jin Ling Kingdom, the future emperor. Am I still not worthy of you?”
Hexi sneered without saying anything.
The crown prince could not understand the sarcasm in this sneer. He thought she had her own reasons, and he couldn’t help but cough and calmed his attitude, “Third Miss, if you have something unspeakable that makes you not dare to agree on it, you can tell me. As the crown prince, is it that I can’t help you out?”
As he said, Shangguan Qi subtly glanced at Nalan Zhengze and Nalan Feixue.
“Something unspeakable?” Hexi said casually, “I would rather be a beggar’s wife than an emperor’s concubine…Well, does this reason count?”
When Hexi said this, there was a commotion in the hall.
Shangguan Qi looked at her with contempt and disgust in his eyes.
It turns out that this woman rejected me because she doesn’t want the position concubine and wants to become the real princess.
With her ugly appearance and useless physique, she wants to become a princess. Isn’t that a disgrace for me?
It’s already my greatest gift to give her the position of concubine.
This woman is not yet satisfied! Her ambition is too big!
The others couldn’t help but look at Hexi mockingly. Such a useless daughter of a concubine actually has such an ambition? Is she not afraid of being laughed at?
Nalan Ziyun saw the unsightly face of the crown prince, and her heart was full of gloat.
Nalan Hexi, that idiot, thinks that she can earn a good future for herself by playing hard to get? Can she look at herself first? Now that she offends the crown prince, let’s see how she can solve this!
Hexi seemed to be totally unaware of the weird atmosphere of the hall. She just smiled and said, “Since the marriage has been rejected, if there isn’t anything else, I will leave first.”
After speaking, she turned around and left.
Shangguan Qi shouted furiously behind her back, “You stop!”
Hexi paused slightly, but she didn’t turn around. She just raised jer brows and looked in the direction of the door.
The door was suddenly opened slowly by a manservant, and someone said excitedly, “Master, madam, the eldest miss… eldest miss is back!”
At the next moment, a woman wearing a yellow embroidered shirt and a white gauze slowly walked into the hall.
The woman was only in her early twenties. She was tall, and she had exquisite features. Her black hair was combed up, revealing a smooth forehead and fierce eyebrows.
Her whole body revealed a kind of cold and alienated breath, but it did not hinder the amazingness of her beauty.
