340 The Sooner They“re Married, the Better
“Can Feng Qingtian satisfy you as much as I can? You little sl*t.”
It was almost an hour later when Nan Ningxin came out again. The maids outside were all waiting anxiously.
Gu Bailu and Feng Qingtian had tea in the living room and talked about the history of the Murong family while they waited for Nan Ningxin.
“Why is Miss Nan still not here? My lady, rest assured, nobody will bully her after she’s married. There’s no need to hide her anymore.”
Gu Bailu was puzzled over what was taking Nan Ningxin so long.
There was no way that woman would be this patient now that Feng Qingtian was proposing.
It almost seemed as if she didn’t want to marry him.
“I’ll have someone check on her. She may still be getting dressed.”
Lady Murong sent another person to bring Nan Ningxin out.
“I don’t think Miss Nan wants to get married,” said Gu Bailu unconcernedly.
Lady Murong looked at Feng Qingtian, who had been silent the entire time. His eyes, however, were filled with affection as they remained fixed on Gu Bailu. His love for her was obvious.
Lady Murong had never seen him look at Nan Ningxin that way.
Lady Murong had been cherished by her husband her entire life. She could read a man’s eyes very well.
She was slightly worried that Ningxin wouldn’t be cherished after she was married.
However, there was no choice for Ningxin now. Besides, she had always liked Prince Zi.
“I’ll go take a look.” Lady Murong’s husband rose and went to get Nan Ningxin himself.
Gu Bailu waved her hand at Qin Shou and said, “Here is the letter of proposal. Please take a look, Lady Murong. We haven’t made all the preparations, but for the sake of Miss Nan’s reputation, we intend to hold the wedding tomorrow in case she’s hurt by rumors.”
Lady Murong read the letter of proposal and saw that Nan Ningxin would marry as a wife.
She grew happy and said, “It’s not wholly appropriate, but it’s true that the wedding should be held as soon as possible. You’re very considerate.”
Gu Bailu rose. “Since Miss Nan isn’t coming out, we’ll go back now. It’ll be a busy day tomorrow. We have to prepare.”
Feng Qingtian rose too and put his hand on her waist. “Let’s go.”
Lady Murong naturally sensed that Feng Qingtian wasn’t enthusiastic.
It was understandable. Nobody would be happy to marry a woman who had been sullied by someone else.
Lady Murong wasn’t bothered by his attitude, and simply saw him off with the other members of the Murong family.
The servants who carried the bridal gifts into the Murong family house were all excited.
“Young master, Prince Zi is truly generous with the bridal gifts,” said Murong Huangtang’s guard delightedly.
Murong Huangtang wasn’t very happy. “I don’t think Prince Zi sincerely wants to marry her. It would be a shame for my cousin to marry him.”
Murong Huangtang thought that his cousin would be happier if she married him instead.
“There’s no choice now. The miss is…”
The miss wasn’t pure anymore, and the old lady wouldn’t allow Murong Huangtang to marry her.
“I don’t care if she’s a virgin or not, as long as she’s good in bed.”
His cousin’s body and legs would be enough for him to enjoy for years.
Nan Ningxin was finally done getting dressed. She grinned in delight when she saw the bridal gifts in the yard.
