Let their reputation stink together, in the future when they were tied to all sorts of ugly rumors, they would truly be labelled as a couple engaged in an illicit affair. Let’s see if they can enjoy life when that happens!
At that time, she would like to see how Huan Meng Yue can become that pure and noble Goddess of the empire.
Or how Huan Meng Yue could harm her!
When Bai Cheng Feng heard her request, he naturally was not willing.
His attraction towards Huan Meng Yue was currently at its peak, without sealing the deal with her at least once, how would he be willing to let her go? Therefore, he unhappily replied, “We can discuss about his matters in the future. Imperial Censor Wang, let us go.”
Imperial Censor Wang had not spoken throughout the whole situation; however, he was the most affected by this situation!
His grandnephew’s case was pending Lord Ninth’s investigation, yet the Lord was flirting with a woman in here… this was an absolutely disrespectful act towards him! After all, he was still a veteran official that served the empire for over forty years, yet he was placed below a mere woman!
Bai Cheng Feng knew he was at fault and thus tried to use Imperial Censor Wang’s case to sidetrack the situation.
This made Imperial Censor Wang uncomfortable.
He was someone who had served two generations of the dynasty, being immersed in the politics and responsibilities of the empire for so many years, proves that he was quick-witted and knew his way with words.
Since Lord Ninth was not giving him his due respect, then Imperial Censor Wang would not make it easy for him to escape this situation.
Therefore, he replied solemnly, “My Lord, this old subject feel that you are not solely at fault, I believe that Demoness must have done something to confuse you. That woman is properly engaged yet she still tried to charm you, this shows that she is also a woman who ignores the etiquettes of a married woman. My Lord should not mind this type of women, if you have needs, my estate possesses many beautiful and young girls…”
The inner part of the room and the outer portion was only separated by a wall screen, therefore Huan Meng Yue would surely have heard the conversations that went on.
After Imperial Censor Wang’s words, a clear crisp sound of a teacup being shattered could be heard coming from the inner room.
Bai Cheng Feng’s face darkened, “Good, all of you are truly good! This prince is only interested in a woman, is there a need to go this far?”
“Ninth, whether there is there a need of not, let me accompany you to ask your Lord father about it then.” Marquis Ping Qiu truly could no longer bear with how the situation was moving towards.
Bai Cheng Feng was vexed, he glared at Huan Qing Yan viciously. His instincts were telling him that everything must be related to Huan Qing Yan, the timing and place was just too perfect. Suddenly, a flash ran passed his eyes as he remembered that cup of tea…
However, that tea had been consumed to the last drop, he had no means to prove his suspicions.
Huan Qing Yan dare not looked at his gaze directly and had tactfully head towards the inner portion of the room, “I shall go ahead and take a look at Meng Yue, I am worried she might overthink things and commit suicide…”
Huan Qing Yan was the most relaxed about the possibility of this outcome amongst everyone in the room.
This type of woman would never commit suicide, she just wished to stir things up and hoped to make a big fuss out of this incident.
The greater the impact it had on these old and prestigious men, the easier it would be for her to execute her plans in the future.
No matter how hard Bai Cheng Feng tried, today’s incident would be something that he would never be able to contain and control.
Huan Qing Yan not only went in, she also instructed the group of serving ladies at the back with a loud voice, “From now on, make sure at least twenty people guard the Moon Court at any point of time and ensure Meng Yue’s safety, in case she takes things too hard. In addition, assign some high star spirit masters also, in case an incident happens.”
At that moment, Huan Meng Yue could not bear with how the situation was heading any longer and came out of hiding.
She was worried that she would once again be kept under house arrest by the Huan Family, if that happens, she worried they would tie her up and marry her off to that Young Master Hou and lose any chance of being together with Bai Cheng Feng.
Since many people had already seen her with Bai Cheng Feng, her reputation was more or less gone, there was no need for her to continue to be reserved.
