Xia Muqing frowned and asked, “Who are you calling a beast?”
Xia Jingtian glowered at her.
“That beast is playing a trick on me.
Hand her to me.
” Xia Muqing hugged the phoenix and asked, “What are you here for?” Recalling his intention, Xia Jingtian unwillingly shifted his gaze away from the phoenix and tidied his clothes.
He then spoke with the authority of a father, “You don’t know how to invite your father properly?” Xia Muqing nodded and said, “Follow me.
” Her reaction made Xia Jingtian even angrier.
He was the master of the Xia residence.
Why did he need Xia Muqing’s consent to enter a courtyard? No one in the entire Xia residence had dared to treat him like this.
This strengthened his resolve to marry Xia Churan to the king as well.
Xia Muqing sat on the main seat and skipped all formalities.
Xia Jingtian, who was about to walk over, stopped in his tracks and turned stiffly.
He was angry but he didn’t reveal.
He looked troubled as he said, “Muqing, after what happened yesterday, Churan really can’t face anyone.
” He waited for Xia Muqing to ask, but after a long time, she still didn’t answer.
The atmosphere was a little awkward.
Xia Muqing noticed that his expression was terrible and asked, “What happened to her?” Only then did Xia Jingtian continue, “It was because she accidentally fell into the water yesterday and King Zhennan saw her…” At this point, he paused for a moment and looked at the expressionless Xia Muqing.
He continued, “So she felt ashamed to live.
She wanted to die and she flung herself against a pillar.
” He deliberately made it sound more serious as he waited for Xia Muqing’s reaction.
Xia Muqing was very polite this time and immediately asked, “Is she dead?” Continue reading on MYB0X N0 VEL.
COM Xia Jingtian didn’t expect her to say such a thing.
He was stunned and didn’t know how to answer.
Xia Muqing continued, “If she died, will the Xia residence have to prepare for a funeral? This is a huge matter.
Did you inform Concubine Ruan?” Seeing that she sounded as if Xia Churan had really died, Xia Jingtian quickly interjected, “She’s not dead yet.
” Xia Muqing asked with a look of pity, “Then why did you come to find me?” The corners of Xia Jingtian’s mouth twitched.
Was she really hoping that Xia Churan was dead? He didn’t dare to give her a chance to speak again.
Without beating around the bush, he stated his purpose.
“Since King Zhennan has already seen Churan’s body, I want you and Churan to marry him together.
But don’t worry, you will still be the legitimate wife of King Zhennan.
After Churan enters the king’s residence, she’ll just be a consort.
She won’t threaten your position.
” He paused for a moment before continuing, “Moreover, you two are sisters.
King Zhennan will definitely take concubines.
You two will be able to help each other.
” Xia Muqing waited until he was done before saying, “What’s the use of telling me this? You should look for King Zhennan.
” Xia Jingtian had an odd expression on his face.
How would he dare to look for King Zhennan? He replied, “I came to ask you to tell King Zhennan about this.
” Xia Muqing looked at him in shock.
“You want me to go? Is it really acceptable for an unmarried lady like me to become a matchmaker and knock on my future husband’s door?” Xia Jingtian also felt that it wasn’t appropriate.
But he couldn’t look for King Zhennan either.
Xia Muqing was the most suitable person for this.
“I also feel that this matter is a little inappropriate, but…” “In that case, please leave,” Xia Muqing interrupted him and said.
Xia Jingtian saw that she was obviously sending him off, and he could only flick his sleeves and leave.
At this moment, everyone in the city had heard about the rumors.
Even everyone in King Zhennan’s residence had heard of this matter.
