Chapter 92, part 6: The Winner
“Here today, I, Murong Qingyan, renounce engagement between myself and Nangong Ye of Nangong family.” The simple and beautiful voice rang in the square: “Henceforth, our future weddings have nothing to do with each other. I, Murong Qingyan, don’t have Nangong Ye in my eyes¹.”
Saying so, not waiting for the reaction of the crowd, Murong Qingyan turned around and left the ring right away.
Looking at the confident and relaxed back of the leaving Murong Qingyan, some people thought, that the rumors couldn’t actually be relied upon. So much so that even quite a few females felt admiration towards her after witnessing this display.
At his seat, Nangong Ting’s complexion resembled pig liver. He had never expected that in the end, Murong Qingyan would deal him such a blow. After today’s events, his Nangong family’s face would be swept to the floor.
Good, very good, Murong family, Murong Qingyan, you had truly gone too far!
“Master Murong, since Murong Qingyan said so, I’m afraid there’s no need to proceed with the wedding between our houses.” With a cloudy expression, Nangong said looking at Murong Qingyan: “Our earlier intention of switching wedding partners now seems to be wholly unnecessary. Our unworthy Nangong family cannot afford your families’ noble maidens.”
Abruptly, Nangong Ting flicked his sleeves and turned to leave.
Originally, Murong Xiong wanted to say something, but opening his mouth, he couldn’t say anything in the end.
He wasn’t prepared for such turn of events. Meanwhile, in his heart he also was angry, how could Murong Qingyan dare say those things during such an occasion?
Although Murong family received the title of the First family, Murong Xiong still counted a lot on the marriage between the two families. Yet, now, due to Murong Qingyan’s move, not only the wedding fell through, it also gave birth to the enmity between them.
But if one looked for the most shocked and dismayed person amongst the audience, it would be no one else but Murong Qingxue.
She had totally not anticipated this development of the situation. She thought that older brother Ye would definitely emerge victorious, but ultimately it was Murong Qingyan, this cheap girl, who won the championship.
Once she saw that Murong Qingyan had won, she almost failed to restrain her emotions, as she was desperate to jump into the ring directly to kill Murong Qingyan while she was elated with her victory.
What made her gnash her teeth in hatred even more, was what Murong Qingyan said in the ring after winning.
When she heard Murong Qingyan’s words, an indistinct premonition dashed through her heart. However, she could never imagine that because of Murong Qingyan’s action, Nangong family would rescind the engagement.
Ultimately, Murong Qingxue couldn’t take the news and to everyone’s surprise, fainted right then.
Amidst the chaos, no one noticed a man dressed in black, sitting in the loft not far from the arena as he watched the finals from the beginning till the very end.
As he saw Murong Qingyan’s latest performance, he couldn’t help a smile raising at the corners of his mouth: “What a fascinating little thing. Whenever I see her, there’s always something interesting going on.”
The guard standing beside the man, couldn’t suppress the shock in his heart, for never before he had seen such a sincere smile on his Lord’s face. However, even though his heart was startled, nothing was revealed in his expression.
- ‘Don’t have him in my eyes’ – another way and the one that was easier to understand to say it would have been: ‘don’t like him’, but I frivolously decided to go with a literal translation. Because… you know… if you don’t have someone in your eyes, you not only don’t like that person in the romantic sense of the word, you also don’t have the basic respect for that person. It’s like a punch in the gut and the groin at the same time, muahahaha. Oh, the beauty of the languages! I bow down to you!
Agnie’s little betting corner:
Fainted?… Murong Qingxue has fainted? …
Some time ago I’ve read amongst the comments that there was erm, a guess (a hunch? An ominous premonition of a trope?) that MQX was pregnant.
So, guys, wanna bet, whether she’s pregnant or not? (I honestly don’t know, yet)
You, guys, pick a side, and if the majority (even if it’s 1:0, or 1:2) is right… I promise I’ll get you an extra part of a chapter (6th) in the upcoming week after author lets us know how it actually is.
But, please, those who know, No Spoilers! Let’s be fair!
Aaaand… you’ve noticed, you’ve noticed, right? The ML was there! But why did he disappear so fast, boohoo, bad ML!
