Chapter 103 Extra Second Half: Helian Ronghuan’s pre-marital anxiety disorder
A cool breeze rolled the fallen leaves, blowing over Yan Changqing’s almost petrified figure.
Yan Changqing: …
The sound of the shattering tiles attracted the other performers. They were a little disdainful when they saw the ability of the No. 1 dancer in Dongyun, and rolled up their sleeves one by one to show it in front of Yan Changqing. Yan Changqing was a little bit overwhelmed, and was speechless for a long time before asking with difficulty: “…You…are you also willing?”
“Of course.” The number one pianist in the world had just come down from the stage. He raised his head and slightly bounced off the rubble on his chest and said disdainfully, “Heh, who in the world can force me to do something? I do this quite often, It’s just rubble on my chest. It’s a way to keep fit from my ancestors, especially for calming oneself. When I play a song that is very depressing, more melancholy, my chest is often quite stifled, so I always use this to relieve myself. This is just a cup of tea’s work and I can make money and make myself feel better, why not do it?”
“Yes, yes.” The royal chef of the palace nodded with a smile: “My ability to breathe fire was the first trick my master taught me when he brought me into the palace. In the palace, good coal and charcoal are used, so my ability is useless. It was not until today that I met the Second Highness, I finally had the opportunity to show my skills, I am really grateful to the Second Highness!”
Each one introduced themselves and their unknown skills. Yan Changqing was speechless, not knowing how to respond. Fortunately, Helian Rongchuan’s personal servant appeared in time and finally pulled Yan Changqing out.
“My lord, I’ve been looking for you, everyone is waiting for you to greet your relatives.”
Yan Changqing was stunned for a moment, then looked at Jiu Jin inexplicably.
“Welcome? Whose relative?”
“Oh, of course it’s our Second Highness!”
Yan Changqing remembered that Helian Rongchuan told him a few days ago that he wanted to continuously give him surprises at the contract ceremony. But this morning, this person said to prepare well, and disappeared. Could it be that this so-called “welcoming relatives” is the next “surprise” he prepared?
Yan Changqing suddenly had a bad premonition in his heart.
However, without waiting for Yan Changqing to refuse, Jiu Jin called a few servants who was already prepared to force him out.
A red silk cloth nearly 100 meters long and 2 meters wide had been laid on the lush grassland. In the distance, a sedan chair carried by eight people was accompanied by a suona, gongs and drums busily stepped on the red silk and carried it over. It was getting closer, and closer, and the guests at the banquet on both sides gathered around the red silk. In high spirits, they stretched their necks to watch the excitement. Because most of the herdsmen here have never seen the true face of Helian Rongchuan, they didn’t understand what the “contract” was for, just that the second prince of Dongyun was marrying. They mistakenly regarded Yan Changqing as the Second Highness in their mouths, chatting excitedly.
“Oh, I never expected our Highness to be so handsome, no wonder girls like him everywhere…” An aunt pointed at Yan Changqing with a look of admiration.
“Didn’t you say that our Second Highness is famous for being cheeky? Why is his face so red when he saw the bride’s sedan chair today, and he doesn’t even know where to put his hands?” Another auntie covered her mouth and grinned.
Being stared at by so many eyes, Yan Changqing was extremely embarrassed, neither entering nor retreating, so he blushed and stood in front of the red carpet.
This Helian Rongchuan!
Standing behind him, Helian Jue and Jiujin shivered silently, and could not help but take a few steps back.
Finally, in a burst of music that almost shattered the eardrums, the sedan chair slowly stopped. The curtain of the sedan chair was lifted, and a figure came down, dressed in the same scarlet wedding dress as Yan Changqing, but covered with a red hijab.
“Pfft!” He Lianjue, who didn’t know it, sprayed Jiujin all over with the horse milk wine she had just drank in her mouth, and coughed again and again. The crowd watching the lively scene around and was also dumbfounded. They blinked hard one by one.
Finally someone whispered: “God, how can this bride look so… strong?!”
“Aren’t they, tsk tsk, look at those broad shoulders, those thick arms. My cows can’t pull her…” A herdsman whispered.
“Why does your second highness want such a girl! Look at this tall person, it looks more like a man wearing a wedding dress!” Someone looked regretful.
“Hey, look ladies, isn’t it a good thing to have a strong body? No matter how tall, short, fat or thin, isn’t she the same when she turns off the lights and takes off her clothes? Besides, she’s so strong, she can work alone while farming cattle and sheep during the day.Second Highness, has save a lot of business troubles!”
“Hahaha, you poor b*stard really doesn’t know…”
Amidst the laughter, Yan Changqing’s face was half red and half white, and he walked stiffly in front of the sedan chair, holding the “bride” – Helian Rongchuan’s hand. In front of everyone’s eyes, Yan Changqing had to keep an embarrassed but polite smile while quietly approaching Helian Rongchuan, who was wearing a red veil. He gritted his teeth and said word by word,
A good contract, where did the sedan chair come from? Why is there a red veil? !
Helian Rongchuan smiled wickedly under the veil, didn’t say anything, just silently held Yan Changqing’s hand, like stroking a fried kitten. He gently patted the back of his hand.
Yan Changqing had to take a deep breath. Wearing a scalp as hard as an iron helmet, he led Helian Rongchuan into the most gorgeous dome built on the grassland. The master of ceremonies had been prepared, waiting for them to worship the heaven and earth.
Although they formed a contract on the grassland and should continue to worship long life and the heavens, at this time, Yan Changqing had his three souls shaken by Helian Rongchuan’s shocking way of thinking and simply went along with him.
At the end of the lively worship ceremony, the two newlyweds were surrounded by enthusiastic people who did not know the truth, as well as relatives and friends who couldn’t hold back their laughter. After, they were sent to another new house. The red silk quilt, the red candles, the red curtains, the red carpet… and the red veil in front of the bright red bed, the one with the red veil, sitting so upright and graceful for the first time in 23 years.
Under the shadow of the candlelight, the figure of this “bride” looked extraordinarily tall and stalwart.
Yan Changqing held a handle of the Jade Ruyi, which was used to lift the veil. He raised it several times, and put it down several times.
“Why haven’t you lifted the veil yet?”
Helian Rongchuan seemed to be in a hurry and couldn’t help asking. His voice was still deep and magnetic, quite nice. But for some reason, this sentence in Yan Changqing’s ears seemed to produce an extremely strong sense of disobedience.
In Yan Changqing’s mind, he couldn’t help but think of the scene when he attended a wedding banquet in someone else’s house when he was a child, and was pulled by naughty playmates to peek at the bride’s head from the window. It’s just that the bride’s beaded crown, heavy make-up, half-shy and half-joyed face in his memory overlapped with Helian Rongchuan’s masculine face, creating an extremely shocking picture.
Yan Changqing rubbed his Qingming acupoint silently. He felt his eyes hurt a little bit.
Oh, whatever, whatever. Yan Changqing sighed softly in his heart. Within a day, he had already received several thunderbolts prepared by Helian Rongchuan with his bare hands, and this last one was not bad. What’s more, he experienced a pot-pouri style wedding today, and he also understood Helian Rongchuan’s intentions.
So he finally mustered up the courage and finally lifted the veil.
The red cloth fell, revealing a handsome and unparalleled face, still with those sword eyebrows that pierced towards his temples, the high bridge of his nose, and the thin lips that always had a slightly flat smile, full of an aggressive male charm.
Yan Changqing opened his pupils slightly, and looked at Helian Rongchuan in surprise.
Maybe it was because of the image of Helian Rongchuan with heavy make-up that he couldn’t help thinking was too shocking or because of the ambiguous light of the bridal candle, Yan Changqing suddenly felt that tonight’s Helian Rongchuan seemed to be more handsome than usual.
“What? You were shocked silly because of how handsome I look?” Helian Rongchuan’s smile deepened, and he reached out and pinched Yan Changqing’s cheek affectionately.
Only then did Yan Changqing react, and he couldn’t help but sigh. He gently took Helian Rongchuan’s hand.
“What, aren’t you satisfied?”
Helian Rongchuan couldn’t help but freeze for a moment, his face changed slightly, and he panicked: “What’s wrong, you can say it, we can do it again in another place.”
“You’ve done well. You can even say, it’s too great.” Yan Changqing thought for a while, then finally decided to speak out what he had been burying in his heart for the past few days.
“I know that in the past half month, you have spent countless hours for the sake of you and I. You have used countless tricks and you can’t wait to give me the best in the world. A few days ago, you carefully selected some of the smartest and most lovely children from the Salesian, and said you wanted to adopt a son for me. Today, for me again, you were even willing to sit on a sedan chair and marry me as a bride. I know all that you have done is just to fill the gap of me letting go of my status as a general and marrying you. You have been trying to find a way to make it up to me, right?”
But the one who was really owed something should be Helian Rongchuan.
Yan Changqing sighed softly.
“But I want to tell you, Helian Rongchuan, all this is my choice. Although I have occasional thoughts, I have never regretted it. I am a general for the safety of the country and the stability of the people. The world is peaceful. But this dream is not only realized by being a general, and fighting with the enemy with a sword and an arrow. What’s more, the world is peaceful now, and there is no more war. Rather than being a general, I think, maybe another cause is more important. I can realize my dream and fulfill the legacy of my ancestors, right?”
Helian Rongchuan was stunned for a moment, and immediately understood what Yan Changqing meant. He couldn’t help feeling overwhelmed, and silently held his hand, with a smile of relief at the corner of his mouth.
It seems that the sweet post-marriage trip he planned needs to end early. In order to realize the dream of his family’s eldest baby as soon as possible, they have to find a few more valleys, travel to a few more countries, look for post-war orphans, and open more centers.
Yan Changqing smiled lightly, got up and cupped his hands and bowed: “So, for the rest of my life, I would like to ask Your Second Highness for your care.”
Helian Rongchuan was relieved of his depression by Yan Changqing’s words, and he couldn’t help being in a good mood. Thus, he put on airs, touched his chin, and raised his eyebrows with a smile.
“If you want my care, you will have to give me some benefits…”
“What benefit?” Yan Changqing also smiled.
“The benefit is—” Helian Rongchuan slammed and pressed Yan Changqing on the bed fiercely. He lowered his head and kissed his slender and elegant neck frantically, while pulling the red bed curtain smoothly.
Although Yan Changqing’s dream can be realized in another way, Helian Rongchuan’s dream was an iron law that can never be changed!
“Tonight, I must hear you call me ‘husband’!”
“You—uh!” Yan Changqing was caught off guard, annoyed and ashamed, and immediately refuted, but he only said one word, but the rest disappeared in his overwhelming kisses.
The long white and slender fingers tightly grasped the red silk sheet, as if struggling to escape, but then, another stronger hand held it down. It slipped gently and unquestionably between his fingers. He held the palm of his hand tightly. Their fingers clasped.
“I will love you forever”.
The hot and emotional whisper made Yan Changqing turn his head away in embarrassment. But he clearly heard from a very secret place in his heart, a very small voice quietly responding:
