Without waiting for Huan Qing Yan to reply, treating her as though she was air, Huan Meng Yue turned her head and smiled at Bai Cheng Feng, "My Lord, I will line up beside Young Mistress, you should return. Thank you for graciously accompanying Meng Yue in person, Meng Yue is deeply touched."
Bai Cheng Feng acknowledged her with a grunt and left only after his gaze of reluctance lingered on her figure for a while.
Once Bai Cheng Feng left, the gentle smile on Huan Meng Yue also slowly receded.
"Come to think of it, I must really thank Young Mistress. If you had not brought people to interrupt the good session I was having with my Lord, it might have taken Meng Yue a while before I could stay in the Ninth Prince Estate and unable to spend such wonderful days with the Ninth Prince."
This b*tch had only left the Huan Estate for a few days and she already began to reveal her true nature.
When she saw Huan Qing Yan in the past, she would be exceptionally polite and respectful, greeting her properly whenever they met but now, she immediately began to provoke her upon meeting.
As expected, she was exactly the same as the previous life.
Huan Qing Yan replied, "Oh? A married woman went about to seduce a man and even stayed in that man's house. From your point of view, do you feel it is something to be proud from your point of view?"
Huan Meng Yue gritted her teeth and replied, "That marriage was something that all of you forced on me, I will rather die than to accept it, so it does not count. My Lord and I are both mutually willing parties."
"What a joke. Which daughter's marriage is not arranged and agreed by her parents? As for mutually willing parties? That leaves one to wonder. Are you sure you did not use some underhanded methods that could not be mentioned to seduce Bai Cheng Feng?"
An expression of shock flashed across Huan Meng Yue's face for a moment before it quickly calmed down.
"That's unexpected. Who knew that the Young Mistress is getting more and more sharp-tongued. Are you envious of Meng Yue? My Lord cares for me because I also possess an Egg Star Talent and have also become a spirit chef within three days…"
"Envious of you? Indeed, this Young Mistress rejected the emperor's decree of an imperial engagement with Bai Cheng Feng in his face, yet you can stomach a trash of a man like Bai Cheng Feng and treat him like a treasure, this is truly something that this Young Mistress is unable to be cocky about. Aren't you ashamed?" Huan Qing Yan replied instantly.
"Huan Qing Yan, the me today was different from the me of the past, you better learn to be polite when you speak to me, Huan Meng Yue! What's more, you insulted Lord Ninth, someone like you who grew up acting spoilt and being pampered by your parents has no qualifications to demean Lord Ninth, who do you think you are? You do not want Lord Ninth? Lord Ninth is not even attracted to you in the first. In the past, he was just giving your father some face so he had to put up an act…"
If not for the people surrounding them, plus because her star talent was not as high as Huan Qing Yan, at Chicken Egg Star level and had awakened later than Huan Qing Yan, Huan Meng Yue would have wanted to give Huan Qing Yan a slap.
She had imagined this scene more than a few thousand times, if she obtained the chance to rise up and become powerful, she would make everyone within the Huan Estate to kneel in front of her and submit to her.
"So you are confident that he is not just putting up an act with you too? That he would definitely marry you, a person with a husband, as his main wife? Aiyo, be careful that you might only become a concubine and come running back to our Huan Family for support after being beaten up by the main wife in the future! I would surely laugh myself to death." Huan Qing Yan decided to give her another mental attack.
Yet unexpectedly, the fuming Huan Meng Yue suddenly calmed down, it was as though someone had pulled her out of that state.
What was displayed was that light gentle smile that she always used in the past.
"Young Mistress, Meng Yue grew up with the Huan Family and had always viewed Young Mistress as a real sibling. The future is still long, Meng Yue would surely find a chance to take care of the Huan Family…"
