The Anarchic Consort Chapter 229
Whenever Helian Wei Wei heard the word "financial backer", the corner of her mouth automatically curved. Without any fuss and with absolute loyalty, she declared, "If you need help in the future, just let me know."
"OK." Baili Jia Jue's thin lips quirked up. His thoughts unknown, his face bewitching.
"Oh, that's right." Helian Wei Wei put the umbrella down. "Where did you go yesterday? I looked for you for half a day, since I wanted to go watch the armament auction together."
Baili Jia Jue paused. He answered a question with another question, "Armament auction? What armament auction?"
Standing by his side, Shadow sighed heavily. Your Highness, that's enough already. Obviously, you participate in that armament auction.
Did you forget? You even gave a pile high of those armaments as betrothal gifts for the princess. But as a result, she ignored you instead.
Baili Jia Jue swept an indifferent glance in his direction.
Shadow immediately stood ramrod straight, his expression wooden.
Helian Wei Wei marvelled at this pair of master and retainer. "You haven't heard of the Profound Heaven's auction?
"I stayed home the whole time recently." Baili Jia Jue told the truth, these two days he cooped up at the palace. He thought of ways to look down on his prey and to tear her claws off.
This obviously lead those who heard it get ambiguous ideas.
It's possible that he's really a two-faced, black-bellied one.
Helian Wei Wei also did not pester him anymore and only said that she would bring him there later.
Baili Jia Jue listened calmly. When he was about to send Shadow out, sounds announcing a good news rang out from afar.
"Congratulations, Miss Wei Wei, congratulations!"
Helian Wei Wei turned round. She saw a lady clothed in a matchmaker garb stood at the academy's gate. The lady's dress was pretty nice looking and her hair was decorated with a dangling ornament. When she spotted Helian Wei Wei, she hurried toward her. "Miss Wei Wei, it's a joyous occasion, truly joyous event!"
Helian Wei Wei knew that woman. She was the capital's well-known matchmaker, granny Zhang. She could manage anything as long as you have money. Through her hands, many young girls were ruined. One example among many, she duped those girls' parents to let them marry old men.
When she and Murong Changfeng got engaged, this lady came frequently to the Defense Division in the guise of advising her. In reality, it was thanks to this woman that her engagement was called off early. Originally, it was also through her that the Murong family issued so many conditions. For what purpose did this hired thug come running to the White Academy today?
"How do I not know of this joyous occasion you are speaking about?" Helian Wei Wei narrowed her eyes. A lightning chill streaked across her pupils.
The matchmaker was unaware that the current Helian Wei Wei was different from before. She thought Wei Wei only acted more calm and cool-headed, not as stupid as before, and said, "I only received the news of this wedding just a moment ago. So how would Miss Wei Wei know? There is no hindrance, so I am here to give you the news in advance. The Lord will arrive in a while."
When Helian Wei Wei heard that, she grimly laughed, "There is no need for him to come. My appetite is already ruining by your coming here. I don't want to use force. You'd better return."
"Miss Wei Wei, watch what you are saying." Granny Zhang proved herself tough.
Her face was still smiling, there was no change at all in her expression after listening to Helian Wei Wei's words. However, the corner of her mouth was stiff, "I know that Miss Wei Wei blamed me for coming in front of you talking about trivial matters. However, I sincerely wish you well. It is difficult to enter Prince Murong's family. What would you do if you get bullied there? As a matter of fact, Miss Wei Wei has a predestined affinity with the Huai An family at the capital. Their ancestor was a government official and your status also match. The crucial point is that Master Huai An's heart is already set on you. He made many inquiries to this old woman about Miss. His appearance is exceptionally handsome, his disposition is also elegant. In the whole capital, he can be ranked on the top. Isn't this a grand, joyous event?
Hearing that, not waiting for Helian Wei Wei to open her mouth, Shadow stared blankly.
This person came to act as matchmaker for the future princess' wedding?
He paused, his eyes glanced toward at Baili Jia Jue. Shadow could not read his master's expression at all since Baili Jia Jue's eyes were covered with gauze. However, he could see the master's thin lips.
Helian Wei Wei's grew profoundly colder. "You said this Master Huai An, I've never heard about him before, how can this be a great joy?"
Granny Zhang exclaimed, "Miss Wei Wei, don't worry. Master Huai An has arrived."
The other party was not only deliberately misinterpreted her words but also shouted in a loud voice, thus making the whole White Academy knew.
Helian Wei Wei looked at her. She suddenly sneered and kicked the old lady's body!
How would she know that Helian Wei Wei could be this ferocious? Her forehead knocked the tree with a thud, it hurt so much that she could only hold her stomach and wailed.
Helian Wei Wei grabbed the woman's chin, her voice fierce, "Don't let me hear you say it for the second time. I will cut your tongue that spread this wedding lies and feed it to the dogs!"
Granny Zhang was thoroughly intimidated by Helian Wei Wei. How could those eyes possess that kind of look, as if wanting to kill her?
The old lady was greatly shaken.She felt strangely cold as if her whole body was thrown into an ice cave. This has even made her regret taking this business.
At that moment, a person came from a distance. He was dressed in a brocaded silk, his hand carried a folding fan, his appearance exuded elegance. Seeing the matchmaker lay on the ground, he directed his eyes toward Helian Wei Wei, and with gentleness like water said, "Miss Wei Wei, you're still the same as the first time I saw you, you have a straightforward temper, regardless of the law and of natural morality. However, please don't blame the matchmaker granny. Lay the blame on me, since I was too anxious and made her come here and made the announcement. I was afraid Miss Wei Wei forgot about me. After all, at that time, only Prince Murong occupied your heart."
After saying that, the man acted as if he was deeply hurt and heaved a long sigh.
At this time, many academy students had already gathered and surrounded them.
All the people watching were touched by this man's words.
After all, Helian Wei Wei, as well as these academy students, were just in their teens. They were at the age when love first awakened. There was always fantasy above love mentioned in the books, additionally, few people dare to say so frankly of love. Hence, these two or three sentences have already tugged at their young maidens' heartstrings.
The man looked around him and knew that his words had made an impact. He was an expert in dealing with young girls let alone the love-struck fool, Helian Wei Wei.
