1311 The Woman Who’s More Beautiful Than Anyone
The Third Prince laughed. "Look, how's this? It's not bad, right."
"It is not bad."
"Sit down, sit down. See, the ladies here are not bad. If you like any, you can take one back."
"There's no need."
"Hey, how do you know you don't like any if you don't take a look? I bet there's someone here you'll like." Third Prince said as he found a comfortable spot to rest. He clapped his hands and the attractive lady outside came in with a tray of floral wine that was of perfect temperature.
Gu Jingze took a sip and put it aside.
The Third Prince knew how to enjoy his life. He asked, "Do you think your nation's royalty of the past lived life like this?"
Gu Jingze glanced at him. "No, you're living it up more than them."
"That is because I'm exhausted every day. For nothing, I must cooperate and put on a show for the television. If I don't enjoy and relax, life would be meaningless."
"Haha, this is called idling."
"It's only because all the men in your Gu Family love fighting for power. If not, with your family's wealth, you guys could be enjoying life much more than me. Look at you. Instead of enjoying your life, you want to head out for work and make yourself so tired."
Gu Jingze replied, "Yes, it's my own fault."
He was not going to explain himself. In fact, everyone had the right to live the life they wanted. If the Prince liked living a certain way, and he himself preferred another, there was no way to explain.
At that moment, the beauties entered one by one.
A few beauties came in with the first clap of his hand, swaying their hips as they walked followed by a scent. It was a scent that did not irritate and seemed of taste.
In different forms of shape and beauty, the women were dressed in a simple white dress, as if they were ancient fairies, feminine and delicate.
Gu Jingze had no emotion on his face and only looked briefly before picking up his floral wine to drink again.
Third Prince said, "Come, pick one."
Gu Jingze looked at the women and though they were beautiful in their own ways, he was not interested.
He raised his eyebrows. "None is as beautiful as my wife."
Third Prince replied, "Ha. How beautiful can your wife be? I don't believe it. These few women are specially selected by me. You can say that they are the country's gems."
"I'll not say a word anymore since you've not seen the world."
"You…" The Third Prince was not angry but looked at him amused.
The two of them knew each other quite well and so their conversations were casual.
The Third Prince answered. "Fine, fine. Since it's like this, then here comes the next batch."
The next few women who came in brought about a sense of style like they were from the ancient Tang dynasty. They had exquisite makeup on and were wearing bright colored clothes. Luxury seemed to be written on their clothes, making people feel that there's light in front of their eyes.
"How about this batch?" Third Prince asked.
Gu Jingze still shook his head.
Third Prince slapped the table. "If you still don't pick one in the next round, I'm going to lose it."
Gu Jingze replied, "Up to you."
He picked up his floral wine indifferently. Third Prince clapped his hands again and people continued coming in.
The next batch of women who entered had a veil over their faces, making it unclear to see their features. Like flowers in the mist, all that can be seen was just a subtle hint of their eyes. The clothes they had made them look graceful like they were beauties emerging from the mist. They were upright like flowers yet gentle like raindrops, bringing a bout of coolness and joy.
Third Prince said, "See, these are not bad right? I think the culture of your C Nation has a kind of mystical beauty. It's really beautiful. This, isn't this that kind of beauty?"
Indeed. Although there was not a clear visual on their looks, these beauties were enough to make the hearts of common men skip a beat.
However, Gu Jingze remained silent and shook his head after taking a glance. "Forget it. You enjoy yourself, I don't know how to appreciate it."
"Hey, don't be such a wet blanket. Since you're already here, you might as well give it a try."
"There's no need at all. Just ignore me and enjoy yourself."
"No way. I've already said I would present you with one, and I shall. Come, the one in the middle. Come and attend to Mr. Gu. If you do it well, he'll take you home and it'll be wealth and luxury for the rest of your life. You'll have the wind if you want the wind, the rain if you want the rain."
The beauty slowly walked over.
Gu Jingze started frowning. "Keep your distance."
Third Prince said, "Don't worry. I've said it. I've already prepared the medicine for you, you can have her without any worry."
"I told you, it's not about the medicine. I will not do anything that will betray my wife."
"Your wife wouldn't even know."
"But I will. And my heart won't be able to bear it."
"That's just your wife. What's this about bearing it or not?"
"Other than her, I have no feelings for other women. Only disgust. But I'm here on your account. Please ask her to leave. If not, I would hate to ruin our relationship if she takes another step and I do something."
"Haha, I bet you won't."
"I'm serious." Gu Jingze assured.
Third Prince said, "You can try. If you really hurt her, I'll take responsibility. But if not, then you've lost for today and if you lose, I'll expect a forfeit."
Gu Jingze frowned again.
Third Prince thumped his chest and said, "This beauty is really exquisite. You can try if you don't believe me."
"Exquisite? I don't want her."
"Haha. You'll know I'm not lying the moment you try. Go ahead."
The beauty continued to get closer. Gu Jingze warned, "Keep coming close and don't blame me for being unkind."
However, the beauty still continued inching closer. Gu Jingze moved back and looked up at her, giving a stern warning.
But the beauty suddenly lost her balance and fell over.
Gu Jingze could not react in time.
In an attempt to get himself away, he grasped the woman's wrist and felt that something did not seem right.
This wrist… This body…
He said aloud immediately and then took a good look.
It was indeed Lin Che.
Even though a lot of effort was put into veiling the woman, this particular body, scent, and weight.
He pulled her arms away and took the veil off her face.
In an instant, a face as bright as emerald and decked in a misty outfit appeared in front of him.
She blinked her black eyes and looked at him. The blink of her eyes was like the stars of the sky, lighting it up.
It left one's heart dazzled.
This get-up of hers was too beautiful, more so than any wonders of nature.
