Not long after, the brother and sister entered the main hall.
The two bowed to Gu Heng and Gu Lin Chao according to the etiquette of Huijiang.
“Prince and Princess Tuo, please be excused.” Gu Heng raised his hand vaguely.
Only then did Tuo Qingye and Tuo Jiang Hua, straighten up.
Prince Tuo Qingye said, “This time this Prince was ordered to come to Daye for two reasons. One is for the sake of friendship between the two countries, and the other is ……” He paused and looked at his sister beside him, “My sister has always yearned for Daye, and is extraordinarily fond of the customs and people of Daye. Therefore, this time, I want to choose a husband-in-law to marry in Daye.”
Gu Heng said, “Then I wonder if the Princess has found a suitable candidate? If not, I will immediately order the Ministry of Rites to select a husband for the Princess.”
A rare trace of shyness appeared on Princess Jiang Hua’s face. She hung her head slightly, but her big eyes quietly looked at Gu Heng.
Gu Heng was stunned and had a bad premonition in his heart.
In the next moment, he heard Tuo Qingye laughing lightly, “Your Imperial Majesty the Emperor is young, handsome, and extraordinary. Yesterday at the banquet, my sister fell in love with you at first sight, and has long fallen for you, and has already decided to marry only the Emperor.”
When this statement was made, the hall was silent.
The courtiers were all surprised.
Gu Heng was even more stunned.
Only Gu Lin Chao’s face was calm.
Gu Heng was the Emperor after all. After being stunned, he quickly recovered and said with a smile, “Prince Tuo can’t joke about this.”
Without waiting for Tuo Qingye to speak, Tuo Jiang Hua grabbed the first step and said sharply, “There is no joke. Jiang Hua just likes His Imperial Majesty the Emperor.” After a pause, and afraid of scaring people with her bold words, she hurriedly remedied the situation, “We Huijiang women, unlike the women of Daye, are not as subtle. In our country, if there is someone we like, we will be brave enough to say so. Your Imperial Majesty, Jiang Hua is in love with you and wants to marry you, so please make it happen.”
This time, Gu Heng’s face could not be maintained.
He had always appreciated women who were gentle and subtle, and he had always disliked and loathed women like Jiang Hua who were bold and straightforward and could be described as unashamed.
Especially now, Tuo Jiang Hua even in front of the whole court, boldly showed him her love, and said she wanted to marry him. This made him a little embarrassed, but also extremely angry in his heart.
But after all, they are ambassadors from a bordering country, if he refuses directly, he is afraid that the peace between the two countries will be broken.
He was silent for a while and had to turn his head to Gu Lin Chao for help, “Imperial Uncle, you see this ……”
The two siblings are already aware of the Princess’ feelings, but after all, the Princess is not an ordinary woman and cannot be treated like an ordinary woman, so the Emperor still needs to consider this matter carefully. “The two of you may want to go back to the Palace to rest, as soon as there is news, this King will immediately sent someone to inform the two of you.”
Gu Heng smiled and breathed a sigh of relief.
Tuo Jiang Hua’s face showed disappointment, but she did not dwell on it too much.
Tuo Qingye’s right hand was placed on the left side of his heart, “Since how, this Prince and Princess will go back to wait first.”
“Someone, send out the Prince and Princess.” Gu Lin Chao ordered in a deep voice.
“Prince and Princess, please.” Immediately, someone came in and took the two out.
As soon as the two left, a courtier immediately said, “Your Imperial Majesty, I think that taking Princess Tuo as a Consort will be beneficial to our great cause, so please think twice, Your Imperial Majesty.”
“Yes, Your Imperial Majesty, Princess Tuo is the most favored Princess of the King of Huijiang. If Your Imperial Majesty marries her, the diplomatic relations between the two countries will be more solid. Please think twice, Your Imperial Majesty.” Immediately, some courtiers seconded the motion.
“I also ask Your Imperial Majesty to think twice ……”
Translators Note: We’re 1/7th of the way there so yayayayay. 100 down, 590 to go
Also I really can’t stand hypocrites like Gu Heng. You don’t want to be treated like a child by your uncle yet you want him to solve all your problems??? He’s a p*ssy😡
Also I like bold girlies like Jing Hua. Confess your love 😂
Ellie: He’s being a typical teen, hates being treated like a child, but doesn’t want to make the big decisions. Too bad for him, Emperors don’t get to be teens.
