“You are very proud of your talent in chess, calligraphy, and paintings. But for me, I only need to call the palace guqin, calligraphy, and painting master.” Lin Chujiu spoke very slow. Her face looked very serious, but her words have a different taste.
“If Wangye wants to listen to guqin, I only need to give a command, and there will be the best guqin master in the world that will play for him. If Wangye wants to play chess, then there will be a chess master that will play with him. If Wangye wants to enjoy calligraphy and painting, there will be the best artist. It’s very easy to do these things. So, is it worth to show off your talent? Can you learn and play much better than the guqin master? Can you compare with those famous master?”
Lin Chujiu said and paused a bit. Seeing Nannuo Yao’s face full of disapproval, she laughed again and continued: “I know Princess Nannuo what you Yao wanted to say, Lin Chujiu you have no talent. It’s useless for you to learn these things. But… … why don’t you ask all the unmarried men here, which one they are willing to marry, the woman who is proficient in chess, calligraphy, and painting or the woman who has a good family and a good wife?”
Nannuo Yao know the answer without asking, of course, it’s the latter.
Nannuo Yao shouted: “Xiao Wangfei, you really made a good argument to find a reason to save yourself. But, what we are talking about is chess, calligraphy, and painting, not conditions for choosing a wife.”
Lin Chujiu's words looked reasonable, but she just certainly want to change the topic.
“Well then, let’s talk about the chess, calligraphy, and painting.” Lin Chujiu said in a good tone: “Princess Nannuo Yao, you want me to teach you these, right?”
Lin Chujiu's face was full of smiles as if the victory was within her grasp. Nannuo Yao was very upset inside her heart, but still nodded her head: “Yes.”
“You can’t even compare to the palace guqin master, what do you want me to teach you?” Lin Chujiu was not afraid to offend Nannuo Yao. After all, if she won’t offend her, will she stop targeting her?
“You dare to compare me to a guqin teacher?” Nannuo Yao’s eyes widen inconspicuously.
She is an imperial princess, does she need to compare herself to a mere music teacher in the palace?
Lin Chujiu shook her head. “No, I don’t compare you with the guqin teacher. You can’t compare with our East Palace guqin master. Princess Nannuo Yao, if I were you, I won’t humiliate myself further.”
In Lin Chujiu's opinion, whether Nanno Yao was acting stupid or not, she had already shamed herself today. What’s the point of showing off her skill after continuing stepping on the east people’s head? Will the east people still look highly of her?
“Xiao Wangfei, you insulted me, I…” Nannuo Yao’s roar in anger, but she hadn’t finished her words when Lin Chujiu interrupted her: “You want to fight with me? Sure, what’s the prize?”
“What, what do you mean?” Nannuo Yao stuttered for a moment.
“You want to fight with me, right? I agree, but if I win, what’s the prize you will give me?” Lin Chujiu repeated her words again. Nannuo Yao was so angry that she gritted her teeth.
When did she say she wanted to fight with Lin Chujiu?
“Aren’t you challenging me? If not, Princess Nannuo Yao, you better sit down on your place now. Although the imperial family of the south doesn’t have much face, I advice you to still act like an imperial princess and keep the last face of your family.” Lin Chujiu’s words were not polite, and again, she spoke about the shallowness of the imperial family of the south.
Just because she is a guest in the east, does she think people of the east will completely tolerate her?
Nannuo Yao’s body trembled in anger, but she didn’t continue to argue with Lin Chujiu. Instead, she looked at the emperor: “Huangshang, is this how your east people treat your guest?
