Chapter 584- Jealous Ye Wu Chen Part 6
Mu Ru Yue’s eyebrows rose as she swept a gaze through the crowd. Her gaze then landed on an enraged face as she commented, “Liu Yu?”
Liu Yu had changed tremendously since the last time they met several days ago.
Her face was no longer as radiant and glossy, but yellow instead. Even her hair was as dry and rough as sickly grass. She was skinny to the point that she might be blown away by the wind any moment. Yet, her eyes were filled with malice.
Mu Ru Yue didn’t expect Liu Yu would attend tonight’s banquet. But it was obvious that her days weren’t good. Otherwise, she wouldn’t be in such a sorry state.
“Cough cough.” The Emperor coughed drily before he continued, “Since everyone is here, I will introduce a couple of people to you.”
He turned his head toward Ouyang Yun Jin and Ouyang Jing upon saying that and introduced them with a smile, “The two of them are the young master of the Ouyang family, Ouyang Yun Jin, and Lord Ouyang Jing.”
The crowd was startled as they lifted their heads to look at the two.
Some people even began to grow stirred up after a moment.
Even though the ages of the two were rather high, they were still handsome, full of vitality, and possessed a great grandeur, especially Ouyang Yun Jin. He had sword-like brows and an icy gaze. His pair of eyes looked strict. If he were slightly younger, he would definitely win many of the young ladies’ hearts.
Of course, there were several maidens that were willing to be their concubines due to their powerful family background…
“There is also…” The Emperor’s gaze shifted to Dongfang Jun and continued to introduce, “This is the young master of the Dongfang family, and the lady beside him is his fiancee.”
Some girls shifted their gazes from Ouyang Yun Jin to Dongfang Jun’s handsome face after hearing the Emperor’s introduction.
No matter if it were age or appearance, Dongfang Jun was superior to Ouyang Yun Jin.
It was a pity that such an outstanding man already had a fiancee, shattering the hearts of many maidens…
Dongfang Jun didn’t seem to notice those heartbroken gazes. He just raised his head to chug a bowl of wine into his stomach. He looked gloomily at Mu Ru Yue, his gaze cold…
But he couldn’t do or say anything as Nangong Zi Lan was by his side! He also definitely couldn’t make her notice his love affair with Xiao Yue before she married him!
Mu Ru Yue smirked as she received Dongfang Jun’s sinister gaze without fear.
“I wonder if he will be this calm if he were to know of the matters I had Xiao Bai and Xiao Yue do…’
“Your Majesty,” The Empress smiled noblely as she glanced at Mu Ru Yue and Ye Wu Chen. With a flash of light across her eyes, she asked, “Your servant has a suggestion but she doesn’t know if it can be implemented.”
The Emperor frowned, but agreed, “Empress, you can say what suggestion you have.”
The Empress smiled elegantly and suggested, “Your servant has a nephew that hasn’t married. I have taken a fancy to Lady Mu. How about bethothing her to your servant’s nephew as his wife? I don’t think I will be dishonoring Lady Mu with this suggestion.”
She smirked slightly as she said that. She had a really graceful smile, but her eyes were sinisterly cold…
She had seen that His Majesty was watching Mu Ru Yue with a different kind of gaze previously.
‘Can it be that His Majesty wants Mu Ru Yue to enter the harem? I definitely won’t allow it. I must make the first move!’
The Empress had truly misunderstood the Emperor this time. He was just showing Mu Ru Yue a cordial smile due to her relationship with the Ouyang family. The Ouyang family held superior influence after all.
He was indeed trying to curry favor by fawning on Mu Ru Yue, but in the Empress’s sight it became ambiguous…
