Chapter 10 Let’s Try the Bridal Chamber

I see, she wants to test his attitude towards this marriage arrangement.

If he stubbornly clings on, then she’ll have to use some devious means to break off the engagement!

Yan Zhen pondered for a bit, and gave a response that fit both the plot and his character:

“I don’t like having my lifelong affairs arranged by others. However, considering my grandfather’s feelings, I will do my best to fulfill his wishes.”

Huang Fu Wenqing’s eyelashes fluttered, and her gaze became even more gentle.

It seems he, like her, doesn’t want his marriage to be arranged. She was such a fool in her previous life, never considering his feelings before trying to break off the engagement, making him suffer so much injustice.

The more she thought about it, the more guilty and sympathetic towards Yan Zhen she felt.

“I’m sorry, Yan Zhen.”

“It’s not your fault, you don’t like this marriage either, do you?”

“I… “

I really like it, because you are the one I’m engaged to.

Huang Fu Wenqing wanted to say that, but was afraid of startling Yan Zhen, as it was too sudden.

It’s better to take it slow and get closer to him –

No, that’s not right! Huang Fu Wenqing suddenly realized that since she had reincarnated, she should be more direct. Dragging it out would allow other women to get ahead.

She knew better than anyone how charming her beloved was. 

Her master, who was both the current Imperial Preceptor and the Grand Mistress of the Cloud Heaven Palace, she was cold in temperament and single-mindedly cultivated, remaining unmarried even in her thirties, unmoved by the fervent pursuit of various Sword Kings, Knife Kings, Pill Kings and Array Kings. Yet it was the then merely Mystic Scholar-level Yan Zhen who had captured her heart.

Even her little junior martial uncle, ranked 9th among the “Eight Immortals of the Cloud”, also harbored subtle feelings for Yan Zhen…

Besides that, there was also the white-rich beauty manager of the Cross-domain business association, who on the surface addressed Yan Zhen as brother and sister, but everyone could see the romantic interest in her gaze towards him, except Yan Zhen himself.

Not to mention the Queen of the neighboring kingdom, known as the “Thousand Slaughters”, and the Queen’s mortal enemy, who were also not unfamiliar with Yan Zhen.

If he hadn’t been so focused on cultivation, he would have had a harem by now.

Now that she has reincarnated, she should seize this rare opportunity, take the lead, and secure a future happiness for herself and her master!

Huang Fu Wenqing composed herself, then shyly but earnestly said:

“This marriage arrangement, I don’t find it unpleasant at all, especially after seeing you again!”

This was said in a somewhat roundabout way, but with some thought it could be understood. However, Yan Zhen found it incomprehensible.

How could this sound like she had feelings for him? Huangfu Wenqing should be here to break off the engagement, shouldn’t she?

Yan Zhen secretly glanced at the system interface displaying the script, searching for usable lines of dialogue, but found not a single one!

In fact, ever since leaving the hall, he had been improvising the whole time.

– System, what kind of script did you give me?

【Improvisation can truly test one’s acting skills. Keep it up, host! Mwah~】

Damn @#$%^&* this f*cking system!.

Yan Zhen cleared his throat and said:

“Wasn’t this our first time meeting?”

Huangfu Wenqing smiled and shook her head:

“Of course not, this is our third time meeting.”

Third time? Don’t lie to me, I’ve read the entire script, and this is the only time.

Yan Zhen looked puzzled. Huang Fu Wenqing took the initiative to explain:

“When I was five years old, it was my grandfather’s birthday, and Uncle Yan Lie brought you along too. I remember, I accidentally fell into the pond back then, and the new dress I had just bought was all soaked. I cried loudly, but you ran to the shore and pulled me up, comforted me, and even gave me a candied haw to eat… That was our second meeting.”

Huh, was there such an event? It’s not written in the script! Could it be an extra plot? I was too careless, didn’t expect there to be an extra!

– System, quickly patch up my script!

【Your request has been received, please wait patiently.】

“The second time? Then what about the first time?”

Huang Fu Wenqing chuckled:

“The first time was naturally when we were just born, didn’t Uncle Yan Lie tell you? When we were just born, we both cried loudly, but when the elders put us together, we immediately stopped crying and even reached out our little fingers to hook together. That’s why they took it upon themselves to arrange our marriage engagement… I’ve watched the recordings made by my grandfather many times, and every time I see you, I feel a sense of predestined connection.”

The young lady turned to look at the young man, her gaze burning with intensity.

Both her words and her eyes were conveying her current feelings.

Yan Zhen was not the wooden male lead of a harem novel, so naturally he could hear the implications in her words. But he also knew that “she likes me” is one of the three major illusions in life.

Moreover, the Huang Fu Wenqing in the script was not like this at all. Even if there was a gap between the script and reality, it shouldn’t be this big.

Don’t be deceived, this is a sweet trap, Huangfu Wenqing is just trying to lure him into being a lecher. He just needs to cooperate with her performance.

“Ahem, so Wenqing, what are you trying to say?”

“Don’t you understand yet?”

Huang Fu Wenqing tightened her grip on Yan Zhen’s hand, her fingers slowly intertwining with his.

The nearly twenty-year-old bachelor Yan Zhen had never experienced such a situation before, and his body stiffened involuntarily.

“I understand, but not completely.”

“Hehe, then turn your head and look into my eyes.”

After a light chuckle, Huangfu Wenqing reached out her free hand and turned Yan Zhen’s face towards her without asking.

Their eyes met, and Yan Zhen almost drowned in the endless affection in his fiancée’s gaze.

The delicate white hand on his face was as smooth as jade, emanating a faint fragrance, and the soft thumb gently caressed his cheek, sending tingling sensations.

“Do you understand now? If you still don’t, then…”

Before she could finish, Yan Zhen saw Huangfu Wenqing slowly lean in towards him, and then felt a soft, jelly-like sensation on his lips.

She… she kissed him?

Yan Zhen’s eyes widened in disbelief.

Is this an illusion? How could Huang Fu Wenqing possibly kiss him?

Even if it’s a beauty trap, the sacrifice is too great. Her character wouldn’t do something like this!

However, the beautiful face in front of him and the softness on his lips were reminding him that this is reality.

This aloof fiancée, the master’s disciple, the princess bestowed by the king, who should have come to break off the engagement according to the script, was now gently sucking on his lips, kissing him tenderly and clumsily, yet full of affection.

She was confessing to him in this direct manner.

They’ve only met a few times!

– Should I continue to cooperate with her performance, or firmly resist?

– But is this even a performance anymore? If not, then what should I do? But what if it is?

– I, I, I…

Yan Zhen was dazed, momentarily frozen in place, allowing Huang Fu Wenqing to kiss him, even unaware of the small tongue that pried open his teeth and slipped inside.

After a long while, their lips parted, leaving a silver thread of saliva between them.

Both their faces were flushed to the ears, their panting breaths hot and moist against each other.

“Now, do you understand?” Huangfu Wenqing bit her lip shyly. “If you still don’t, then…”

She suddenly pushed Yan Zhen down onto the bed, then climbed on top of him, leaning close to his ear to whisper the rest:

“…then let’s just consummate the marriage right here.”

What to do? Accept the offer and see the world falling apart? Or find some kind of way to break the engagement? Difficult choice.


World end or marriage end… 😅
