34. Teasing the Icy Duke

"Excuse me?" Yu Zhenzhen said when she heard the foreign prince utter those words. Never in her wildest dreams did she actually think her parents would actually engage her again, especially so soon! She knew that being a princess, the first princess at that, would eventually have an arranged marriage, but it hasn't even been six months since the cancellation of the last one!

And besides, prince Natsu was indeed the modern equivalent of a bipolar asshole. Like practically every other man in this novel, especially the male lead, Nangong Longwei.

"Zhen Zhen!" Both men cried out when they noticed she was awake. Yu Zhenzhen ignored Nangong Longwei, despite his hurt look, and narrowed her eyes at Natsu Sin. "Prince Natsu,"

The foreign prince pretended he didn't hear her call until Yu Zhenzhen sighed and said, "Sin-gege," only then did he turn his head in her direction and give her a dazzling smile. "Yes, my future princess consort? Don't worry, you will love the country of Natsu."

Yu Zhenzhen controlled the urge to roll her eyes. Why was one of the male leads actually so obsessed with her? Wasn't he supposed to fawn over the female lead? Dear author, please fix the plot line, it's heading in a completely different direction.

"When did-why are we-how?" Yu Zhenzhen's brain was so confused to the point it couldn't even form proper sentences. Who could blame her? Her former kidnapper is telling her they are engaged out of the blue.

"Emperor Yu decided that he couldn't allow his favorite daughter to remain fiancé-less, hence the decision to engage you. Luckily, this prince is benevolent enough to offer to marry you."

Yu Zhenzhen frowned, "What about the girl you were telling me about at the temple? The one you were thankful for?"

Natsu Sin widened his eyes at her denseness and naïvety. He didn't believe there could be anyone this clueless in the world, but here she stood, a complete and utter fool when it came to love.

"I was talking about-"

Nangong Longwei interrupted him when he pulled the princess out of his lap, "Sorry, your highness, but the princess is coming with me."

Yu Zhenzhen gasped when Nangong Longwei lifted her up like a sack of potatoes. Once again, someone was carrying her without her permission. The first time, it had been Natsu Sin, now, it is the bastard who gave her a nasty look for something that wasn't her fault at all!

The bipolar bastard that always acted like a giant ice cube yet behaved in a certain way that confused the crap out of her. The glare he gave her earlier was still engraved in her heart. He believed her instead. Sure she had the female lead halo protecting her, but he should know her character. If it was OYZZ, she would understand, but the soul inside was a kind and compassionate person who was pretty much a zealous person, disliking any type of abuse and violence.

She thought she made that pretty clear, but apparently she didn't, since he immediately took the side of the female lead.

Why?

Even Yu Zhenzhen didn't understand why her heart was heavy and the word kept repeating in her mind. She didn't like Nangong Longwei, far from it.

Right?

Her train of thoughts were interrupted when Nangong Longwei placed her on the ground. They both stood on a cliff and Yu Zhenzhen couldn't help but gasp at the beautiful scenery.

It seemed like it was released from a fairytale.

"Wow..." Yu Zhenzhen couldn't help but mutter. The scenery blew her mind away.
