The Indifferent Young Master’s Flash Marriage - Chapter 843
Chapter 843: I Will Bet!
Jiang Xuecheng’s voice was faint, but no one had expected him to propose such a sensational horse racing method!
This was not a bet on who was better at riding between Jiang Xuecheng and Fiennes. This was a joke about Su Wan’s and Diya’s lives!
How could a blindfolded rider control the direction of the horse?!
Without eyes to guide the way, no matter how good one’s calculations were, they could not estimate how far the distance of twenty meters was, right?!
If things went wrong, Su Wan and Diya would die on the spot, becoming a wisp of souls under the hooves of the horse!
The other people present were instantly stunned.
Diya, who had always said that Su Wan was a coward who refused to compete, was also a little frightened at this moment.
Her face was flushed red as she asked Jiang Xuecheng awkwardly.
“Your Highness, if that’s the case, wouldn’t it be very dangerous? Then when Su Wan and I are on the track, can we remind each other how far away we are?”
Although Diya was willful, she would not risk her life as a bet!
Although she liked the two famous horses, Chuxue and Bailu, and had developed some feelings for them, if she were to really bet on this kind of competition, even if she did not die, her face would be trampled by the horse’s hooves!
She could not afford to gamble!
However, not to mention Diya, even Su Wan and Fiennes were a little surprised that Jiang Xuecheng would propose such a competition rule!
Only Jiang Xuecheng had a calm expression, suddenly treating his previous proposal as a child’s play.
He looked at Diya, his pair of dark phoenix eyes were like two tranquil lakes, without the slightest ripple.
“In order to maintain the fairness of the race, when you and Su Wan are on the track, you are not allowed to move around, and you are also not allowed to speak.”
“Then this is too dangerous. How can you –”
Upon hearing that, Diya almost jumped. Without thinking, she started jumping anxiously!
However, Jiang Xuecheng remained unmoved. He cast a sidelong glance at Diya with a smile that was not a smile.
“Why, are you afraid? Didn’t you just mock Su Wan for being a coward?”
How could this be mentioned in the same breath!
Diya was instantly defeated. Her lips trembled slightly. She could only cast a pleading gaze at Fiennes.
She was waiting in front like a target. How could she not be afraid!
“Brother, what do you think?”
Fiennes was not as easy to fool as Diya. Although he was shocked when he first heard about the conditions of Jiang Xuecheng, when he thought about how much Jiang Xuecheng cared about Su Wan, it was impossible for them to put Su Wan’s life at stake.
Moreover, the emperor was using retreat to advance, using such a dangerous bet to scare his sister away.
Fiennes stood next to Diya indifferently, his azure blue eyes glancing at Su Wan.
“As long as Miss Su has no objections, I agree to the rules of the competition.”
Fiennes’ tone was a little ambiguous, as if he was very familiar with Su Wan. Jiang Xuecheng’s expression instantly darkened.
“Wan Wan, since Fiennes agrees, then Diya will definitely listen to her brother. What about you?”
When Su Wan heard Jiang Xuecheng’s question, her pale red lips could not help but quiver.
Actually, she was also a little afraid…
Su Wan had never seen Jiang Xuecheng ride a horse before, so she did not know how good his riding skills were.
But even if Jiang Xuecheng’s riding skills were at the peak, once he was blindfolded, could he still see through to her?
What if he did not control his strength properly and directly rode the horse and stepped on her body?!
Su Wan wanted to ask if Jiang Xuecheng was serious, but when Jiang Xuecheng noticed Su Wan’s unease, he immediately gave her a reassuring look.
Su Wan was stunned, so she simply did not ask.
She trusted this man wholeheartedly, and she also believed that Jiang Xuecheng would not take her life as a joke.
Su Wan hesitated for a second before she finally nodded her head firmly.
“I will bet!”
She had to believe in Jiang Xuecheng.
It was not that Diya did not see Su Wan’s hesitation, but when she heard Su Wan agree so decisively, a baffling feeling suddenly arose in her heart. There was even a faint hint of admiration.
She suddenly understood why the Emperor liked this woman.
However, Diya thought about it again. The competition had not even started yet. Why did she have to flaunt other people’s ambitions and destroy her own prestige?
Su Wan might be a woman who spoke well. When the competition started, she would not even know where to run to!
After consoling herself twice like this, Diya immediately put aside the little admiration she had for Su Wan.
Diya lifted her chin proudly and grabbed Fiennes’ arm. They looked like siblings with deep affection.
“Your Highness, Miss Su, since you two are the ones who proposed to use this method to make a bet, why don’t you start first?”
Although Diya was not old, she could be considered to be a little scheming.
Naturally, Jiang Xuecheng could see through Diya’s thoughts at a glance.
If he and Su Wan came first and he did not stop in time to hurt Su Wan, then this match would be considered as their loss. There was no point in continuing the match.
On the other hand, Diya and Fiennes won without a fight. Their honor will return.
Diya felt a little uncomfortable when she saw the faint smile on Jiang Xuecheng’s face.
She knew that all the people present were smart. She also knew that her little scheme could not be hidden from Jiang Xuecheng’s eyes.
However, what was wrong with finding a way out for herself first!
If her brother had not insisted on agreeing, she would not have dared to agree to this match!
“Your Highness, you wouldn’t dare to–”
Seeing that Jiang Xuecheng did not make a sound, Diya suddenly felt uneasy, afraid that Jiang Xuecheng would draw lots to decide the order.
If it was her and Fiennes’ turn to go first, Diya felt that she would immediately run away in fear!
Jiang Xuecheng knew that Diya was trying to goad him, but he did not care at all.
Jiang Xuecheng nodded indifferently, and a confident smile appeared on his face.
“Why not? Only Su Wan and I will go first, if not it will look like we bullied you!”
Upon hearing that, Diya immediately heaved a sigh of relief. Seeing that Su Wan did not object, she could not help but feel that Su Wan was also somewhat pleasing to the eye.
Diya curled her lips at Su Wan, but the anger in her heart towards Su Wan had unknowingly disappeared by more than half.
This woman was so arrogant, it would be better if she was not trampled into ground meat by the horse hooves…
Jiang Xuecheng nodded slightly at Fiennes.
“I’ll go change into clothes that are convenient for riding. Wait here.”
Soon, Jiang Xuecheng, Su Wan, and the others arrived at the racetrack.
The service staff brought Jiang Xuecheng’s usual “Lightning” and respectfully led it to the side of Jiang Xuecheng.
“Your Highness, Your Lightning–”
It was the first time Su Wan had seen such a tall and handsome horse.
Lightning had a beautiful figure and well-proportioned limbs. Its fur was pure black like obsidian. It could be seen that the horse’s mane had been washed and cleaned all year round. Under the sun, it shone with a low-key and noble color. It was so beautiful that it was soul-stirring.
Previously, the staff had introduced that Fiennes’ “Bailu” was a purebred, but did not know what breed Jiang Xuecheng’s Lightning was.
Just as Su Wan was curious, she saw that Jiang Xuecheng had already taken out a completely opaque black ribbon and tied it around his eyes…
