This was the first time he called her 'sweetheart' after they met each other again
At first, she felt dumbfounded when he called her 'sweetheart'. However, she was getting used to it and accepted it somehow. Every time when he called her that, she felt a sense of warmth from the bottom of her heart.
However, the time was a killer. The six month period had lightened the warmth when he called her 'sweetheart' again.
When he called her that again, the first thought in her mind was of how many girls he had called 'sweetheart' before?"
After Emperor Xuan talked about the reward of marriage, Celestial Master Zuo had been calm and quiet. He even asked her to pour a glass of wine for him so that he could watch the argument at the side.
When he suddenly said such a thing to her, Gu Xijiu thought that he was taking her as a joke.
She smiled and replied, "Of course." Then she looked at Rong Jialuo and waited for him to give her the sign so that she could start to speak up.
She did not realize that Di Fuyi, who was at the side, suddenly expressed disappointment and turned his glass in his hand looking like he was deep in thoughts.
Emperor Xuan did not expect to see the intense argument after he talked about the marriage reward. After a while, he finally raised his hand and said, "Stop! Everyone, please shut up. I will make a fair decision."
Finally, the advocates of both parties stopped their argument and looked at Emperor Xuan waiting for his verdict.
Emperor Xuan looked at Gu Xijiu and asked softly, "Xijiu, what do you think?"
Was it a sign to let her make her own decision?
Who was she going to choose?
Gu Xijiu raised her head and glanced at everyone. She then looked at Rong Jialuo. He slightly nodded and gave her a smile as encouragement.
Therefore she made up her mind, "If Your Majesty allows me to choose, I would like to marry the Crown Prince"
A sentence that triggered a thousand ripples.
The advocates of the Crown Prince cheered like crazy while the advocates of the Fourth Prince were disappointed and quickly talked to Gu Xietian. They claimed that the parents should be the one who decided for their children so the General Gu needed to have a say in this marriage arrangement.
Gu Xietian was actually somewhat listless. His daughter had changed recently so he was a bit scared of her.
However, this matter had to do with his future stand in the imperial court, thus he had to speak up as a father, "Your Majesty, I feel extremely grateful for your marriage reward to my daughter.
However, my daughter is just normal woman and a bit too active. I am afraid that she might not be suitable to be Crown Princess. "
Emperor Xuan interrupted him, "Do you mean you want to marry your daughter to Rong Chu?"
Gu Xietian made up his mind, "Yes! I would appreciate it if Your Majesty could promise this marriage arrangement so that my daughter is able to have a promising future!"
The Emperor Xuan had a deep thought, "This"
When Rong Jialuo noticed that Emperor Xuan had the intention to get it done, he stepped forward, "My Emperor Father, I did not want to hide from you. I have secretly promised to marry Xijiu two months ago. I gave her my spiritual heart-shaped bracelet as a token of love and promised that I would not marry other women except for her. She made the same promise too"
Gu Xijiu secretly shuddered after she heard the speech. However, this was a critical moment, so she had to play along with his story!
The Emperor Xuan frowned and looked at Gu Xijiu, "Xijiu, is this true? Do you have his spiritual heart bracelet?
Gu Xijiu answered, "Yes." Then she took out a bracelet from the storage inside the Firmament Stone. She raised to show the Emperor Xuan, "Your Majesty, this is the spiritual heart bracelet"
This was not an ordinary bracelet but the one and only in the world.
