Pampered Poisonous Royal Wife Chapter 436

~ EMBRACE OVER THE QUILT? ~ 

As soon as Yue Wang finished speaking, the entire room fell silent.

Su Qing couldn’t help but cough, “It’s getting late. Yao’er, let’s go back and rest. If the snow stops tomorrow, we will still have to go down the mountain.”

Grand Princess Yi De nodded. “That’s fine too. Yunyao, you go back first and rest. Have Junyue’s residence arraged?”

“When I came, I was in a hurry. I thought I would go down the mountain after seeing Imperial Aunt. But I didn’t expect that the snow to be this heavy. Baohua Temple has a bed in one of the rooms, so it’s not a big deal to sleep for one night.” After Yue Wang finished speaking, his gaze fell on Mu Yunyao.

Mu Yunyao lowered her eyes, her expression tranquil.

The Grand Princess Yi De nodded. “Mm, then you should rest earlier.”

“It’s already dark, and the snow is falling heavily. I’ll send Yunyao to her courtyard to rest.”

Mu Yunyao finally raised her head and opened her mouth to refuse. However, she saw that Grand Princess Yi De and Su Qing were both looking at her. The words of rejection stuck in her throat, unable to come out.

After pausing for a moment, the Grand Princess Yi De seemed to understand something and slightly nodded her head, “Go.”

Mu Yunyao silently stood up and followed Yue Wang out of the door.

After the two of them left, Su Qing could not help but be filled with worry, “Mother, you said Yao’er and His Royal Highness Yue Wang....”

“What do you think of these two?”

“To tell you the truth, in the past, when we were in Jingling City, I had already come in contact with tHis Royal Highness Yue Wang. At that time, I did not know his true identity and only thought of him as a merchant from the Capital. After careful observation, I felt that this person’s appearance and virtues were extremely compatible with Yunyao. After that, he left Jingling City and returned to the Capital. It was truly a pity in my heart for a long time.… I never thought that the next time we meet, he would have already become His Royal Highness Yue Wang, and Yunyao had to call him Uncle now....”

Su Qing truly felt sorry for Yunyao. She had carefully observed Yunyao and could tell that she had also been moved by Yue Wang. After going through things in her previous life, Yunyao had been extremely cautious of others. It’s not easy to give up one’s feelings, and who knows what’s going on in the end?

The Grand Princess Yi De’s expression deepened, and she smiled slightly, “You don’t have to worry about it. The matters of the children should be left to them. We as elders only need to support them after they make a decision.”

Su Qing hurriedly looked up and said, “Mother, could it be that you....”

She was most concerned about her daughter. Therefore, after seeing Mu Yunyao with worries, she also persuaded that as long as the child can be happy, she doesn’t care about reputation and seniority. In addition, even though it was easy for people to criticize an uncle’s marrying his niece, it wasn’t as if something had never happened before. As long as the two of them feel happy, the others are not important.

She was only worried that the Grand Princess Yi De wouldn’t accept this. After all, as the Grand Princess of the Dali Dynasty, she attached great importance to etiquette, and she also wanted to protect the Imperial Family’s prestige. If the Grand Princess objected, in order to not make things difficult for her, Yunyao would also think twice and even miss out on a good fate.

The Grand Princess Yi De patted Su Qing’s hand, “You are not born to worry about your life, so you just need to wait and see the result with peace of mind. Whatever they choose in the end, I will protect Yunyao from getting hurt.”

Hearing her words, Su Qing suddenly became happy, “Thank you, Mother.” With this guarantee from Grand Princess Yi De, Yunyao no longer had to worry about that so much. Besides, she still hadn’t found any evidence to prove her identity. If Yunyao chose to be together with Yue Wang in the end, then she would probably stop investigating. Thus, everyone would assume that Yunyao was just the granddaughter recognized by the Grand Princess and that she did not actually have a blood relationship with Yue Wang.

On the other side, Yue Wang was holding an umbrella as he walked beside Mu Yunyao. Hearing the creaking sound of his feet stepping on the snow, he asked aloud, “Do you like the snow lion?”

Mu Yunyao slightly turned her head. The sky had already darkened, so she could only see Yue Wang’s rough outline, but she could not tell what his expression was, “Is it possible that Your Royal Highness Yue Wang is coming up the mountain and really wants to build a snowman for me to see?”

“Yes.” Yue Wang nodded solemnly.

Mu Yunyao pursed her lips. She really didn’t know what to say, “Please go back, Your Royal Highness Yue Wang . I can go in myself.”

“I don’t know how long it has been since the Baohua Temple’s bedding has been changed. It’s hard and icy to the touch, and there’s not even the slightest bit of warmth on my body.” Yue Wang lowered his head to look at Mu Yunyao and started to complain in a soft voice.

Mu Yunyao felt an itch in her ear as the low and deep voice flowed into her heart. She wanted to rub it with her hands. “It’s just a matter of making do with one night, and the conditions in Western Guangdong are even worse. Didn’t Your Royal Highness Yue Wang stay there for eight years?”

“It’s easy to go from frugal to extravagant, but it’s hard to go from extravagance to frugality. No one bothered with it in the past, so I didn’t overthink it. But now that I have someone to complain to, I find that I can’t bear it. This is really difficult....” As Yue Wang spoke, he carefully looked at Mu Yunyao’s expression. He recalled in his heart the words Eunuch Cheng said and felt that he could be even more pitiful, “Yunyao, do you think there will be bugs on those bedding in Baohua Temple?”

Hearing these words, Mu Yunyao almost threw the oil-paper umbrella in her hands at Yue Wang’s face, but listening to his tone, she couldn’t bear it, “You … You just wait here.”

Seeing Mu Yunyao turn around and walk towards the courtyard, Yue Wang couldn’t help but smile, “Alright.”

Jin Lan and Jin Qiao hurriedly greeted them, “Miss, the snow outside is getting heavier and heavier. It must be peculiarly cold tonight. This servant has taken the initiative to add more quilts to your bed.”

Mu Yunyao walked over to the bedside, folded the quilt, and held it in her arms before walking towards the door.

Jin Lan and Jin Qiao were at a loss. “Miss, if you don’t think it’s necessary, please give the quilt to this servant. This servant will put it away.”

“No need. I’ll be back soon.”

The quilt was very thick, and when Mu Yunyao just picked it up, she seemed alright. But, after walking two steps, she felt that it was so heavy, and her vision blocked, making her very difficult to walk.

She managed to get to the door, but just as she was about to step out of the doorway, she felt she had hit a wall. She was caught off guard, her feet slipped, and she fell to the ground. Suddenly, she was buried in the quilt: “Hmm....”

Yue Wang had already seen Mu Yunyao carrying a soft quilt in her arms. Her two hands could not reach her head, so she could only tightly grasp the sides of the blanket. Her steps were slow, and she took every step seriously and carefully. Her appearance was a bit clumsy, making him want to hug her in his arms and rub her against him.

Twisting his fingers, he discovered that he was becoming more and more greedy.

In the past, Yunyao had been on guard. All he wanted was for her to let go of her vigilance and accept himself. When she relaxed, he could only hope that they would be together again. After they had confirmed each other, he thought he could get closer to her.

As he thought about this, he purposely stood in the middle of the doorway, watching her holding Jin and being bumped into his arms step by step and awkwardly. Then, just as she was about to fall, he caught her through the blanket.
