The news was quickly spread around the imperial capital, and Baili Hongzhuang started to become a very influential figure in the city.
Baili Hongzhaung refused to sell her immortality pills to the General’s Household, and had even crippled Baili Haoxuan’s hand in front of everybody’s eyes!

Prime Minister Li Chengqian’s people, and those who weren’t on good terms with Baili Zhentao were all enjoying the chaos. Who knew Baili Zhentao would be so blind?

In their opinion, between Baili Zhentao’s 3 children, Baili Yuyan, Baili Haoxuan, and Baili Hongzhuang, Baili Hongzhuang had the most potential.

But now, she had become Baili Zhentao’s opponent!

It was just too funny- a single Baili Hongzhuang could beat Baili Zhentao left and right!

Jingli Garden.

“I heard you taught Baili Haoxuan a lesson today?” Dibei Chen asked, smiling.

Baili Hongzhaung nodded a little, “News spreads fast in the Imperial City.”

It had only been a short 4 hours since it happened, but so many people already know.

“Baili Haoxuan is Baili Zhentao’s treasured son. Now that you’ve crippled his hand, I’m afraid that Baili Zhentao won’t forgive you.”

Baili Hongzhuang raised her eyebrow. She wanted to know why Dibei Chen mention such a thing.

“I think we should marry earlier. Once you’re my wife, Baili Zhentao no longer have the least bit of influence over you. What do you think?” Dibei Chen smiled as he looked at Baili Hongzhuang.

Baili Hongzhuang was a little startled, she never expected for Dibei Chen to come out with such a story.

Her mind thought rapidly as she gazed at Dibei Chen. Suddenly, she smiled, “Good!”

Baili Hongzhuang was still under Baili Zhentao’s influence. Outsiders didn’t know what happened inside the General Household’s walls, so many people in the Imperial City were calling her unfilial and disrespectful.

Dibei Chen saying such a thing now meant he was worried for her.

Seeing Baili Hongzhuang agree so happily, Dibei Chen’s smile grew more and more brilliant. His eyes that were like shattered gems glittered brightly.

“If you don’t mind I’ll start preparing the betrothal gifts.” Dibei Chen grinned quietly.

Baili Hongzhuang slightly frowned, “I’ve cut off all ties with the General’s Household, so I wouldn’t be marrying from that house.”

“No problem.” Dibei Chen wasn’t surprised, “So then how about you marry from Jingli Garden?”

Baili Hongzhuang smiled. Her actions would’ve certainly been seen as random or stupid by others, but Dibei Chen always understood what she thought.


“Little Lord, Baili Zhentao was furious when he heard about what happened, and was preparing to go teach Lady Baili a lesson at Godly Doctor Square.”

Hei Mu’s face was heavy as he reported to Dibei Chen.

“Should I send some people to teach Baili Zhentao a lesson himself?”

Although he knew his lord would refute it, he just couldn’t help it.

When Lady Baili wasn’t good, she was treated unjustly by the General’s Household. Now, Baili Haoxuan even threatened to kill her, saying she was an unfilial daughter.

Before when Baili Yuyan had blinded Lady Baili, they’ve never seen Baili Zhentao give Baili Yuyan the slightest bit of punishment!

“Send someone to warn Baili Zhentao. Make sure not to expose our identity.”

Dibei Chen’s eyes glimmered with cold light. Baili Hongzhuang was one of his people, whoever dared to bully her, he’ll never let off!

When Hei Mu heard Dibei Chen’s words, he couldn’t help but stare at him, stunned. Usually when he proposed the idea, his little lord would never agree. How could it be different now?

Could it be because of…… of Lady Baili?
