Hearing these words, Zi You’s mood improved for some reason. She lightly smiled as she replied, “Yes, Chennu’s appearance is vulgar. Chennu cannot compare to the Shizi whose beauty can captivate birds and beasts, exceeds the natural world, and is capable of causing the downfall of a country.”* [All idioms to describe devastatingly beautiful females]
“Darned yatou, you dare to insult Ye as a woman?” Shangguan LingRan roared, but his eyes held a smile.
He hated people saying he was better-looking than women the most. Mu Zi You not only said it, but she said it in front of imperial grandmother and so many palace maids.
But he was actually not angry. Instead, he was very happy. What was this?
It must be this darned yatou! She casted a spell on him. Let’s see how he would take care of her in the future when they meet. Shangguan LingRan bared his teeth and made all sorts of angry faces. But the Empress Dowager saw that upward tilt of his lips. How could she not understand?
The Empress Dowager looked at this and looked at that. Her heart couldn’t help but be very happy. Her own grandson had eyes on the top of his head. He didn’t put any guniang in his eyes. It seemed that he liked this Mu Zi You.
The only regret was that the guniang is too young. She was only twelve years old this year. Her grandson had to wait three years for her to reach marriageable age. Three years later, her grandson would be nineteen years old. Wouldn’t that be too old?
The Empress Dowager hesitated and didn’t immediately bestow a marriage. As a result, nothing happened. What happened afterwards would exceed everyone’s expectations.
Also, this could be blamed that Shangguan LingRan wanted to keep his pride. He refused to admit that he liked a twelve-year-old little girl, so he did not insist that his imperial grandmother bestow a marriage. This scoundrel would bang his head in deep regret later on. This would happen in the future. Let’s not talk about it now.
