Four hours later, their group arrived in the Nan Chao Country.
When she came out of the horse carriage, there were a few beams of sunlight that fell on her face.
She narrowed her eyes to look at the people moving around, feeling that this scene was familiar and unfamiliar.
She was finally…..back……
“Hey! That mute, didn’t you hear what I just said?” Mu Jiao charged forward and wanted to grab her skirt, but she skillfully turned around and beautifully avoided it.
Luo Qing Chen gave a shrug with a face as calm as water. She looked like she didn’t care at all which made Mu Jiao’s face turn green.
“We’re about to enter the palace.” An envoy looked over at them and tried to mediate, “Please don’t fight.”
“I don’t care, you apologize to me!” Mu Jiao didn’t back off as she put her hands to her hips and looked at her with an angry look.
Could it be that this person was a fool! This treasure can’t talk, how can she apologize?
“Your highness, don’t make it hard for princess Mu Xue, alright?” The envoy knitted his brows and said, “Everyone is waiting! How about we enter the palace first?”
“Oh.” She proudly looked up and said, “How could I forget? You’re a mute!”
Luo Qing Chen cursed in her heart, but her expression was still without any fear. She didn’t forget to stick out her tongue, not caring about the other side’s taunting at all.
There was a saying: I love seeing you trying to kill me, but you can’t do it! Anger you to death!
As expected, when Mu Jiao saw Luo Qing Chen’s appearance, her proud look turned green.
Another woman beside her who was also a princess said, “Is there a need to compete with a mute? She just looks a bit good, so she’s here to fill the numbers.”
Luo Qing Chen naturally knew that although the five of them had similar identities, there were higher and lower.
One was a princess and the other four were daughters of kings.
[TL Note: They both translate to princess, but the first one is the princess of the emperor and the others are princesses of kings.]
In terms of identity, Mu Jiao was higher than them. Then adding in the fact that she was a mute princess, others naturally looked down on her.
“That’s right, it’s dirtying my mouth to talk to her.” Mu Jiao gave a soft snort and moved forward without looking back.
Luo Qing Chen looked at her back and gave a cold laugh. Would Nan Yi Sheng like this kind of person? He would cut her head off to give her a stool!
At noon, the envoy took the five of them into the palace. When she walked into the palace, her heart kept beating fast and her palms were covered in sweat.
She could feel her tension and she kept thinking of how they would meet.
Would he…..recognize her……
It was a pity that the five of them were placed in the Center Hall and they weren’t summoned at all.
The envoy brought back many treasures and fabrics when he came back. He said with a sigh, “King Nan Chao is busy with government affairs and doesn’t have time to see the princesses. These things were given by King Nan Chao to the princesses, they represent the good relation between the Nan Chao Country and the Mu Country.”
“What does King Nan Chao mean by this? We aren’t worthy?” Mu Jiu crossed her hands and angrily rolled her eyes at Luo Qing Chen, “Is it because we have a mute here?”
“Princess, you have wronged princess Mu Xue. King Nan Chao doesn’t even know how many of us came, so it’s impossible to know that there’s a mute among us.” The envoy looked at Luo Qing Chen and couldn’t help speaking up for her.
“I say, are you in bed with this mute!” Mu Jiao pointed at his nose and said, “Why do you always speak up for this mute?”
There was a ‘pa’ sound that followed as Luo Qing Chen raised her hand without a word to slap Mu Jiao’s face.
She moved very quickly and when Mu Jiao had reacted, she was already on the side making a pot of tea for herself, looking quite relaxed.
