Crossdressing Female General vs Alluring Malicious Beauty (16)
When Jiang Huan arrived, Gu Shengyin was a little surprised, but still ordered the servants to invite him in before going to change her clothes.
“Is Shi’an looking for me for something?” Gu Shengyin asked.
Jiang Huan had come to find Gu Shengyin in the spur of the moment, but what could he actually say to her? Say that he saw Shuhe with another man in the royal gardens acting flirtatiously?
These words, even if the two of them had an excellent friendship, would still hurt him.
Jiang Huan cracked a smile: “I just left the palace and your residence happened to be on the way, so I came in to take a look.”
Gu Shengyin thought to herself, this is definitely not on the route out of the city, but didn’t say anything out loud.
Jiang Huan couldn’t help but feeling a little discomfited. Ever since he had heard Fu Yunzhen’s drunken complaints, he had felt as if his heart tangled into knots, but he wasn’t sure how his friend felt about the matter. After all, many people would consider being able to marry the princess as a great honor, even if the princess would not be like an ordinary wife.
He hesitated for a long while, before finally asking: “What do you think about your engagement with Princess Shuhe?”
Gu Shengyin’s expression fluctuated slightly, before she smiled: “Why did Shi’an suddenly think of this matter?”
Jiang Huan studied him carefully, and didn’t miss the unnatural stiffness that flashed across the other’s expression after he spoke.
“Last night you spoke a bit while drunk, so I had some questions,” He spoke directly.
Gu Shengyin’s expression changed and, as Jiang Huan looked at her with a serious face, knew that there was no way for her to brush the situation aside, and couldn’t help but crack a bitter smile.
“You already heard what I said, Princess Shuhe personally came to find me and told me that she didn’t like me, and ordered me to cancel the marriage contract.”
Gu Shengyin continued placidly: “I am indifferent towards the princess, but this marriage was originally bestowed by His Majesty. How could simply being unwilling resolve this matter?”
Jiang Huan didn’t know how to describe how he felt in his heart, but when he heard the other say that he had no feelings for the princess, a secretive joy flashed through him.
He studied Gu Shengyin: “What if I can persuade Imperial Brother to cancel the marriage? Is Yunzhen willing to give up this honor that ordinary people could never dream of?”
Gu Shengyin glanced at him: “So in Shi’an’s heart, I, Fu Yunzhen, am one that would be greedy for glory and wealth? Not to mention…”

She stood proudly: “This Yunzhen only wants glory that comes from my every strike of the sword and blade on the battlefield. Something like a wife with high status, I would never lack!”
Jiang Huan finally laughed: “This is the Fu Yunzhen that I knew you were. Don’t worry, I will solve this issue for you.”
However, Gu Shengyin shook her head: “There is no need to trouble yourself, Shi’an, I’ll solve this matter myself. Since Princess Shuhe disdains me, this Fu Yunzhen is unwilling to pander to the arrogant.” Don’t joke, her goal wasn’t simply to cancel the marriage matter. She still remembered the assassination attempt at the capital gates; Princess Shuhe wanted to brush by the matter so easily, but Gu Shengyin would not let it pass.
Jiang Huan furrowed his brows, feeling that this matter wasn’t easy to resolve, and that it would undoubtedly be better for him to intervene instead.
But seeing Gu Shengyin’s determined expression, he swallowed back the words he wanted to say. Since Yunzhen was so insistent, then he’d let him do as he pleased. If things didn’t work out, then at that time he could go speak with his Imperial Brother then.
Gu Shengyin moved quickly.
The source was unknown, but a rumor slowly spread: The beauty of the capital, Princess Shuhe, was in an affair with the eldest son of Duke Zhu’s residence.
