Why Don’t You Follow Benwang? 1
“No way, it’s not possible. Besides, you’re not my type. I don’t want to stay with you all my life. I also want to find someone when I leave the palace in the future, find the one who should be my beloved, and then get married and have a baby.” Qu Tan’er shook her head suddenly, and was more worried that Mo Liancheng would directly pull her into the bridal chamber. In order to avoid any more dreaming, she just directly made everything clear.
“What do you think of Benwang?” Mo Liancheng asked lightly, his smile unabated. He didn’t pay much attention to what she said.
“You’re fine.” Good enough that she wants to escape.
“Why can’t Benwang be your beloved?”
“Oh? Is there such a thing?”
“Well, if the interest and will isn’t there, then they are born to subdue each other. They should not interact with each other.” Qu Tan’er thought for a moment and replied to him with a serious face.
“However, I think you are quite agreeable. Why don’t you just follow Benwang?”
“Don’t force yourself. Since everyone can’t get along, it’s better to get together casually and part casually, isn’t it?”
“Get together and part casually?” Mo Liancheng raised his eyebrows and stared at her. The smile at the corners of his mouth became thicker and heavier, but why did there seem to be a gloomy atmosphere?
“Well, this problem is simple. You just need to write down the words “xiushu”1, and these two words are easier to write than “take a hike”. Just a few strokes… Come on, write.” Qu Tan’er smiled and kindly took out the clean paper and laid it flat in front of Mo Liancheng, even a little bit eager to write it on his behalf.
At present, the bed has been found. It’s better to leave early so as not to have more dreams at night.
“It’s really easy.”
“Ha ha, yes, it’s easy.” Qu Tan’er smiled flatteringly while looking at Mo Liancheng’s beautiful eyes, and never had they looked so amiable.
“When Benwang rises to heaven, it’s not too late for you to ask again.”
Suddenly, Mo Liancheng’s flat sentence made Qu Tan’er’s little face black and her smile froze. A few seconds later, she recovered and said with a serious expression, “Mo Liancheng, you also know that I’m from the Qu household, and of no use to you. Drive us out early. In this way, won’t you be worry-free and trouble-free?”
She didn’t understand. She had said everything so clearly, why didn’t he accept the proposal?
After a long time, Mo Liancheng slowly opened his mouth and said, “Benwang just said that it’s not too late for you to ask when Benwang is dead someday.”
Qu Tan’er was silent. Completely speechless.
Suddenly, Mo Liancheng’s faint eyes flashed and he smiled and said, “Benwang just confessed, and all matters in the residence will be in your charge in the future. At any rate, you are also the princess, and this is your duty. If there is anything you don’t understand, ask the housekeeper directly. However, the exception is that you can’t leave the house casually.”
“Wh? What did you say?” Qu Tan’er was shocked and stared at him in a daze. She didn’t understand.
“Benwang believes that you just heard it clearly.”
“You give me the power of the residence? You’re also letting me take care of the affairs of the residence?” Qu Tan’er asked, really wondering if this person’s head was rusty, otherwise…
“You don’t have a fever today, do you?” Qu Tan’er’s eyes twitched, and her whole face was almost black.
“It’s a pity that the water you brought didn’t actually burn Benwang. Otherwise, you might really see Benwang with a fever.”
“…” Qu Tan’er squeezed her red lips and was silent again.
It turns out that… he understood things very well.
