Chapter 415 – Forced Marriage Part 1
No matter how Mu Ru Yue was, she was his wife. As her husband, how could he bear it when people vilified her? Wouldn’t that be a question of his sight? Furthermore, how could the eldest young mistress of the City Lord’s manor be comparable to the woman by his side?
Dong Fei Ran thought about the purpose of the event today so he forcibly suppressed his heart felt displeasure. With a stiffened smile, he tried to salvage the situation as he apologised, “Mister Wu Chen, I had overstepped my boundaries. How about heading in to attend the banquet now?”
Ye Wu Chen’s gaze was sinister and cold, but he didn’t continue to bicker with him. With a slight smirk, he smiled charmingly and replied, “Ben Wang’s mood is rather good today so I won’t continue to bother with you. If there is a next time, it will be the annihilation of your City Lord’s Manor!”
When he turned to look at the peerless girl by his side, his purple eyes were filled with happiness as he said, “Mu Er, let’s go.”
Mu Ru Yue smiled and nodded. She was previously worried that Ye Wu Chen would really destroy the City Lord’s Manor in his fury. They had come here with objectives this time so since they hadn’t accomplished them, there were still a use for keeping the City Lord’s Manor intact…
In the luxurious banquet hall, a few maids carried in splendid dishes as they entered the hall. Everyone walked in and sat in their seats with the lead of the City Lord. It was obscure as to whether this was done intentionally, but the City Lord purposely placed Ye Wu Chen’s position near him.
At that moment, a pink figure like a peach blossom entered from outside, momentarily attracting everyone’s gazes.
The young girl in pink clothing had an innocent and adorable appearance. There was a large butterfly knot tied at the front of her chest and coupled with a scallop necklace around her neck; she seemed to be a naive and innocent little girl.
The young girl was about fifteen years old. Her skin was white and tender. She had a doll-like face with an agate pair of large eyes. When her long eyelashes fluttered, a pure ray of light glimmered in her eyes.
She was like an immature child, expressing an innocent smile.
The young girl walked before Dong Fei Ran and twirled around at the centre of the banquet hall. She giggled adorably as she asked, “How do you think I look today?”
“Haha! ” Dong Fei Ran laughed and commented, “This is my daughter. Her appearance can enamour the world. She can easily suppress others’ beauty, no matter how she dressed.”
When he said that, his eyes filled with affections. To parents’ eyes, their daughter was the most outstanding and was incomparable to others. But it was sufficient for just him to think that and it was quite inappropriate of him to say his thoughts at such a large event.
There were several ladies that came to attend this birthday celebration. His words was akin to offending everyone…
Suddenly, a stifled laughter was heard from his side.
“Enamour the world? Isn’t that phrase used to describe a courtesan?”
Dong Fei Ran’s expression changed drastically as he shot a sharp gaze toward the white-robed young girl sitting quietly there. He then asked grimly, “What did you just say?”
Mu Ru Yue smirked as she placed the teacup in her hand down casually. She then turned her head to the charming man by her side. With raised brows, she asked, “Husband, did I say anything wrong?”
The word ‘husband’ pierced through Ye Wu Chen’s heart. His purple eyes became gentle and with a smirk, he replied charmingly, “Whatever my wife says is right. If you say she is a courtesan, then she is; although I don’t think she has the qualification to be a courtesan with that kind of appearance…”
