My Crown Prince Consort Is a Firecracker - Chapter 2287
Chapter 2287 The Capricious Fourth Duan
“Your Highness! I really do have a token for my orders!” When Wu Nuomei was rummaging about her clothes, she heard the sound of wind blowing past her ears.
Shadow had kicked her up onto the wall again without warning!
Her face flushed red from anger, and she beat the wall while shouting, “Don’t kick me if you have the guts!”
Duan Yue’s carriage arrived at the Fengyuan Gate after half an hour.
By this time, the carriages parked there had already formed a long line.
The emperor was not only bringing his favored consorts on this winter hunt. The talented sons and daughters of aristocrats, court officials, and patrician families were also coming along.
The Minister of the Left, Wu Yong, was searching for his troublemaking daughter among the crowd.
When he saw that His Highness the Chen Prince’s carriage had arrived, he hastily dismounted his horse to greet him.
Everybody followed suit after Minister Wu. They bowed to greet His Highness the Chen Prince.
This Chen Prince, who had just returned, was not to be underestimated.
He had soared to the skies in one move and had overturned everyone’s views of him.
The demon emperor’s blood that no one had inherited for so many years had actually chosen him.
It could not be denied that this prince had heaven-defying fortune!
“Ah!” A female scream came from the crowd.
One of the young ladies had gotten spooked by the three swallowing wolves who were snorting furiously, and fainted.
That family’s servants fell into chaos at once. One person pinched her philtrum to bring her back to consciousness, while another scrambled to feed their young lady medicine.
A cold snigger could be heard through the thick carriage curtain.
“The daughter of Ultramarine Province’s Li Clan, which is known as one of Phoenix Imperial City’s three great patrician families, actually fainted from the sight of a mystic beast. Truly an eye-opener for this prince.”
Some low sniggers could be heard among the crowd.
A manager of the Li Clan protested with a flushed face, “This, this naturally is not! This…”
How could he say that this girl who fainted was merely a normal daughter who was born of a concubine in their clan?
Daughters of concubines like these who were quite pretty would usually be offered up to nobles to warm their beds. They were naturally not the talented girls that the clan focused on nurturing.
Their Li Clan had brought along this daughter of a concubine on this winter hunt to hopefully charm someone in power, and especially royalty, with her looks!
Yet who knew that this would happen? There was a reason that these people were unpresentable.
She had fainted from the scare of His Highness the Chen Prince’s swallowing wolf before they had set out!
This truly disgraced the family clan.
“Fourth Brother!” A superficially smiling voice came from beside them. “The ladies of the Li Clan are delicate, so you shouldn’t be reprimanding them. Even though these swallowing wolves are low-tier mystic beasts, they still are scary to girls!”
The crown prince, the second prince, and the third prince alighted from their carriages and walked up. They were accompanied by a chilly young man on a horse.
Duan Yue glanced over at the other person and recognized him as the Qing Vassal Prince Rong Qing.
Duan Yue also alighted from his carriage and cupped his hands insincerely toward the crown prince. “Brother, I feel that since Imperial Father has decreed this winter hunt, those who are going should have at least passable cultivation.
“I have no interest in joining a hunt with rotten apples! If they are all weaklings like this, this prince will be returning to his estate.”
Duan Yue’s bored expression made everyone’s mouth twitch.
The crown prince Rong Li hastily called after him. “Fourth Brother!”
“His Majesty the Emperor is here!”
“Her Majesty the Empress is here.”
“Noble Consort Duan is here…”
