Chapter 22 : My Little Girl (12)
Sheng Lingyun snorted disdainfully. he only regards women as toy, naturally, his emperor’s elder brother will not make trouble with him just for a woman. But now, he had been punished with house arrest for a month. It was already hellacious for him to restrain himself from going out. Yet his emperor’s older brother even decreed that he’d visit the Yulin Academy again and this annoyed him.
Therefore, after walking around the large Yulin Academy for most of the day, he refused to go and attend the class. He kept strolling around the Yulin Academy.
As he was passing by Tenth Class, he caught a glimpse of something and could not help but pause and turn back. He looked in from the hallway window.
Sheng Lingyun saw a little girl sitting beside the window. This little girl was different from other girls he had seen before.
She had dainty eyebrows and a beautiful pair of eyes, which were focused on reading a book. The eyes themselves were clear and dark, appearing lively and deep. Her appearance was simply beautiful.
After a while, she bowed down again to write something. Her small white fingers held the writing brush, and the small and delicate words under the book were as delicate as green bamboo. Her small white fingers held the writing brush, and the words that appeared underneath were as delicate as young bamboo.
But the thing that intrigued him the most was that this little girl had a diligence and gentleness to her that other women did not. It was different from the women who dressed up beautifully and usually caught his eye.
Sheng Lingyun narrowed his eyes as he stared at the person beside the window. He murmured to his servant, Zhao Qi, “After school, ask the girl if she is free to come to Yun Palace.”
Zhao Qi followed his master’s gaze to the girl. He understood that the Seventh Prince had taken a fancy to her. But this put him in a tough spot, as he tried to explain, “This matter might be a little difficult, Your Highness. Most of the students in the academy have at least some influence…”
He had noticed the girl’s temperament, which was also unlike ordinary people…
Sheng Lingyun sneered, “No matter how big her background is, how could it compare to mine? In fact, I have taken a fancy of the little girl, which is nothing short of a blessing for her.”
Zhao Qi knew that this was what Sheng Lingyun’s heart desired. He could merely sigh inwardly and nod in response.
After the class was over.
Shu Nuan was about to get up and leave, when suddenly the youngster sitting in front of her turned around to greet her.
“Hello! My name is Su Hai, the son of Prince Jun. And you are? How come I’ve never seen you before?”
Shu Nuan gave him a surprised look, and replied, “My name is Shu Nuan.”
Su Hai laughed out loud, “I know, Master Gao introduced you! I asked about your clan.”
Shu Nuan didn’t wish for Sheng Qianmo to become unhappy from her associating herself with his good reputation in the academy. So she hesitated for a moment, and then answered in a muffled voice, “I’m from the Shu Nuan Clan.”
Su Hai laughed even more, and exclaimed, “You are so funny!”
Shu Nuan quickly got up and tried to leave, only for another voice to stop her from behind.
“Shu Nuan of the Shu Nuan Clan! My name is Yue, can we be friends?”
This voice belonged to the same person who she had heard shouting when she had entered with Master Gao. Shu Nuan turned back and saw that he was a youngster garbed in luxury, with a beaming smile on his face.
His face was devoid any negative emotion.
Shu Nuan looked at him directly, and rejected, “I don’t want to be friends with you.”
“Hey! How can you be so stingy? I am not making fun of you!”
Su Hai was overjoyed, and said, “Shu Nuan! Don’t be friends with this fellow, be friends with me instead!”
The atmosphere of the 10th Class was quite good, and a few people laughed or played as they walked out of the hall.
But since Sheng Qianmo had said that he would send someone to pick her up, Shu Nuan waited outside Yulin Academy.
What Shu Nuan had not expected was that, after waiting for a while, a person came up to greet her.
