The Anarchic Consort Chapter 230
This woman was indeed the object of their ridicule. Whenever she saw Young Noble Murong, her eyes would not even move away from him. Unfortunately, she grew up to have this ghastly appearance. If he did not know now that she was flush with cash as well as the boss of Profound Heaven, he would not even want to spare a glance at her hideous face. In all likelihood, when she heard him say this, she would be ecstatic with this promise of marriage.He had deceived so many people with this trick. He even hooked up with the Defense Division's third young lady, not to say about this leftover woman who was thrown out from her family.
Thinking of this, the man's smile grew even brighter.
He still yet to know that under Helian Wei Wei's youthfulness and pretence as a dim young girl was a mercenary queen.
As far as Huai An's hooking up with Helian Mei was concerned, there absolutely was no proof.
"Since you know that I don't even know you, then why don't you hurry up and leave?" Helian Wei Wei narrowed her eyes like a cat who was about to stretch its claws.
Huai An's face stiffened. He did not expect to get such an answer at all. It was as if his face was slapped in front of everyone.
Since the "tender and soft as water" move did not work, Huai An simply sneered, "Telling me to leave? The Defense Division has received my betrothal gifts, so you tell me to go now? Where do you put the matchmaker's words."
The people present looked at one another. According to the rules, once the betrothal gifts were received, it meant consent and the couple must marry. Otherwise, one would suffer rebuke from the public.
Helian Wei Wei did not care about this at first. She remembered that the Third Prince once told her something concerning reputation, so she could only hold her temper and not swung her first at Huai An.
Come to think of it, this proposal came too suddenly. She just announced her identity, and immediately such a shameless man showed up and said that he had given her betrothal presents.
Anyway, somebody wanted to get her to marry on purpose!
As for this Huai An, he must have been a scum in spite of his jade-like appearance.
If she married him, not only would he not treat her well, he might have other plans in mind as well.
And the person who arranged all these accepted betrothal gifts well in advance while also let her not even have the chance to refuse the marriage. What a malicious mind!
Helian Wei Wei's eyes were cold, her gaze swept toward Master Huai An's waist ornaments. The corners of her mouth curved up, "You talked about betrothal gifts earlier. I have not even seen those. Go find that person who received it from you instead."
"Do you think of reneging on the promise?" Huai An took a step forward, "Those betrothal gifts are now in the Defense Division. Madam Su has already taken care of them for you, just waiting for you to get married. Wei Wei, why are you so stubborn? Don't you trust that I will treat you well?"
Huai An was a clever man, he knew how to be firm first and then soft.
This way, it didn't sound too harsh in other people's ears. People would only think that Helian Wei Wei used the betrothal gifts and refused to admit the consequences.
If this was accepted without any problem and everything had been arranged properly, it is tantamount to accepting the marriage. What's more, all made the point that Helian Wei Wei was in the wrong!
Helian Wei Wei snickered, "Since the one receiving the betrothal gifts and made this arrangement is Madam Su, why don't you marry her instead?"
"Helian Wei Wei, you.you!" Huai An was so angry he almost couldn't maintain his demeanour. Finally, he took a deep breath, "How could you say such a thing? So disappointing."
Hearing these words, people shook their heads, thinking that even if Helian Wei Wei had a good future, she was also vicious. Her stepmother was so kind to her to even take charge of her marriage. However, she did not understand gratitude, being an example of a person who was unable to tell good from bad.
At this time, Helian Jiao Er and Helian Mei arrived. Helian Jiao Er saw the matchmaker who was kicked to the ground by Helian Wei Wei and cried out in alarm, "What's the matter? Granny Zhang, aren't you here to announce the marriage for Master Huai An. How could this turn to a mess?"
"Miss Jiao Er." the matchmaker seemed to have seen a relative and wiped the blood on the corner of her lips. "What sin did my ancestors committed? I had good intentions to help out but was beaten up badly. I have announced so many marriages, and have never seen anyone like this..." Granny Zhang wanted to talk about the little slut, but when her eyes met Helian Wei Wei's gaze, her body shivered and changed what she said stiffly, calling out "It is so difficult to persuade Helian's Eldest Miss."
Helian Jiao Er, like a goddess, mercifully wiped the old matchmaker's face with a handkerchief. She turned her head toward Helian Wei Wei and said, "Elder sister, Grandma Zhang has good intention. How can you do this to her?" Mother's heart yearned to give you a marriage, you did not care about it, but also made everyone so embarrassed."
"Good intention?" Helian Wei Wei curved the corner of her mouth to a smile, "What kind of good intention is it, to introduce the man who hooked up with Third Sister to me? What was she thinking? People who didn't know would believe that I, Helian Wei Wei, was a love-struck fool who wanted to rob her sister's man. I'm not like you, who couldn't help put her hands on her own sister's man."
With this remark, Helian Wei Wei simultaneously slapped the three people's faces. Pow pow pow!
Everyone knew that the last thing Helian Jiao Er wanted to mention was that she did intentionally want to rob Helian Wei Wei's marriage. However, because the Third Prince chose a concubine, she immediately pulled out, and this trick could not pass scrutiny.
He Lian Mei shouted loudly because of her guilty conscience, "Who do you say is hooking up?
Helian Wei Wei, I warn you, don't throw mud at people!"
"Throwing mud at people?" Helian Wei Wei quickly moved with small steps and brushed past Huai An. In her left-hand palm, there was a beautiful small handmade pouch, "Third Sister, your name was written on the top of this pouch. How come this hung on this man's body?"
Helian Mei's face was drained of its colour!
Even Helian Jiao Er did not know that there would be such a thing. She looked back at Helian Mei and clenched her teeth, this matter had made a lot of damage!
What a big mess!
An unmarried woman's pouch hung on a man's body. Needless to say, everyone knew what was going on.
People, one after another, turned their gaze at Helian Mei and Huai An.
Huai An's complexion became ugly, he stretched his hands to wrest the pouch from Helian Wei Wei's grasp.
Unexpectedly, Helian Wei Wei flung her head back, grabbed Huai An's arm, and threw him on the ground with a beautiful throwing technique. Her fingers gripped Huai An's throat elegantly, her voice cold: "Still fancy me and want to take me as a bride? Are you taking me, Helian Wei Wei, as a fool? It would be profitable for you to say, who exactly gave you the idea and what's the matter about those betrothal gifts?"
