Chapter 472 “A Commoner”
“Di Gongzi, she is just a commoner. Why did you take her as your wife?”
Ji Yun’er chuckled, and her eyes looking at Baili Hong Zhuang which originally displayed caution, now displayed mockery and disdain.
She was previously worried, but this woman in front of her was nothing more than the grass underneath that could not pose any threat to her.
This kind of woman, even if Di Bei Chen truly like her, it was only based on beauty, nothing could ever make her Di Bei Chen’s true wife.
As long as she killed Baili Hong Zhuang, then Di Bei Chen would be single.
Xia Zhi Qing frowned and had been drawing closer to Di Bei Chen since Ji Yun’er appeared. She looked very upset.
Even now, Ji Yun’er dared to look down at Hong Zhuang? It was too much!
“Hong Zhuang is not a commoner, she is the daughter of a general!” Xia Zhi Qing blurted out.
However, Ji Yun’er’s smile on her face only grew deeper and was infected with a touch of irony.
“A general’s daughter? Haha, what is the difference in status between that and a commoner? Isn’t she simply a civilian.”
Ji Yun’er’s face was filled with mockery. In this vast world, did the daughter of a general still count? Nothing exists, in their eyes, even the emperor can’t count!
“How did you talk to her?” Xia Zhi Qing was furious. “You kneel!”
The next moment, Ji Yun’er’s face was gloomy, her eyes filled with rage. “What did you say?”
Feeling the thick murderous intent of Ji Yun’er, Xia Zhi Qing’s face also changed a bit. She knew clearly that she could not compare with Ji Yun’er or her background. It may even be that her words could bring infinite disaster to her family.
However, Xia Zhi Qing’s expression eventually became firm. How could she bear it when Ji Yun’er insulted Hong Zhuang like this?
When Xia Zhi Qing was ready to retort, Baili Hong Zhuang slowly said, “I am a commoner. But aren’t you too nothing if not for your family?”
Baili Hong Zhuang shook her head slightly, her face calm despite Ji Yun’er’s words, not showing the slightest tension, and instead displayed contempt for Ji Yun’er.
As the young head of an aristocratic family in the past, she had not only seen many such things but also learned many lessons. How could she be afraid of Ji Yun’er?
Seeing that Baili Hong Zhuang dared to take initiative to make trouble, Ji Yun’er’s eyes became gloomier, and the light of spite and rage constantly flashed through.
“You can’t say the grapes are sour without tasting them.* I was born with a status and am bound to be stronger than you!”
Yan Ling Xuan didn’t say anything. They all knew that Ji Yun’er had always had ideas on Di Bei Chen, not to mention after knowing the status of Baili Hong Zhuang, they also understood that Baili Hong Zhuang was just a temporary flame.
If Ji Yun’er wanted, it wouldn’t take much to have Baili Hong Zhuang completely disappear from this world.
“You are really too much!”
Xia Zhi Qing could not help but shout, she had seen many hateful women, but this Ji Yun’er was the worst.
Bai Jun Yu patted Xia Zhi Qing’s shoulder before whispering. “You don’t worry. Baili Hong Zhuang is not one to be bullied. Not to mention Di Bei Chen will not let Baili Hong Zhuang be bullied.”
He knew Baili Hong Zhuang. Although not for a long time, he had personally witnessed how those who offended her were punished.

* You can’t say the grapes are sour without tasting them. The phrase “吃不到葡萄说葡萄酸 (chī búdào pútao shuō pútao suān)” literally means that when one cannot attain the grapes, they will respond by saying the grapes are too sour to eat anyway. Nowadays, the term is often used by Chinese people to describe someone who lacks the capacity to complete something, defending their inability by saying it is not worth completing. [copied from source. Click to check out where the idiom comes from, each day learn something new ;-)]. Basically, JY is saying that BHZ wasn’t born with a status and has no capacity to criticize her and is being jealous. (Forgot to add this in the beginning ~.~ )
