Perhaps it was because no one had ever refused him outright before, or since Baili Hongzhuang was simply too beautiful, but he had always dreamed about her.
The dress Baili Hongzhuang wore today exuded a fascinating charm. His feelings to the ministers’s young misses faded away in a split second, replaced by a brilliant light as he looked at her.
In his eyes, there was only Hongzhuang.
When the maidens who were trying to attract Xuanyuan Huan’s attention saw Baili Hongzhuang steal their limelight, their expressions all turned ugly.
“Today’s the drafting feast for his highness, so what’s Hongzhuang doing here!”
Voices of jealousy and discontent spread amongst the crowd. Although she had previously rejected the Crown Prince, many people wondered, could she have had a change of heart?
Baili Yuyan directly stepped out of the crowd and spoke, “Hongzhaung, this is a banquet hosted by the imperial family. You who’s not even the daughter of an official or minister, how could you be here?”
After her words were spoken, everybody’s eyes landed on Baili Hongzhuang’s body. Even the distant Emperor and Empress silently noted down the fact.
Baili Hongzhuang laughed enchantingly. Although it wasn’t as elegent, it invoked a different kind of charm.
“Sister, you don’t recognize me?”
Her cold voice was mocking as she stared at Baili Yuyan, enjoying the look on her face.
Listening to her familiar voice, Baili Yuyan turned as pale as a ghost, watching Baili Hongzhuang, stunned as she asked, “You…..y-you are?”
Baili Hongzhuang spoke slowly, her voice firm and unquestionable.
I am Baili Hongzhauang!
Today, she had told everybody her true identity.
Everybody stared at Baili Hongzhaung in shock. None of them were strangers to this name!
The abandoned Crown Princess!
The General Household’s second miss who was unable to cultivate, that trash!
With such a reputation, Baili Hongzhaung was like a joke in everybody’s eyes, just a pitiful creature that a few sympathize with.
But staring at that radiant figure in front of them, they were just simply unable to link the two together.
“Impossible, how could you be Baili Hongzhuang!”
Baili Yuyan’s eyes widened as horror seized her heart, too panicked to even consider trying to maintain her image.
Compared to Baili Yuyan’s blundering, Baili Hongzhuang was indifferent, every move appearing elegant.
“We’ve been living together for more than 10 years, so even if you had blinded me, I’ve never forgotten how you looked. But you can’t recognize me even as I stand right in front of you. I’m really saddened.”
Baili Hongzhuang smiled, casually saying the bloody facts as if they weren’t about her.
Everybody was in an uproar. The crowd all forgot about the evening banquet, immersed in Baili Hongzhuang’s words.
“Hongzhuang, she’s actually the General Household’s trash miss, Baili Hongzhuang!”
Although they had felt that the name Hongzhuang was a little familiar, none of them thought that the two names would be connected!
“Baili Hongzhuang said Baili Yuyan blinded her?”
“Baili Yuyan even robbed her little sister’s fiance, so why couldn’t she have blinded Baili Hongzhuang as well?”
