Chapter 43: Princess Enters the Palace (1)
Before Ye Yu entered the front palace hall of the palace, the imperial secretary and palace maid serving within the palace were already dismissed by Xuan Yi.
When she arrived at the palace, the imperial secretary who came to call her hesitatingly glanced inside the palace hall, greeting Ye Yu.
“Beauty Lian Sheng, please enter the palace hall. Everyone else, please retreat and wait outside the palace hall.”
Ye Yu who was halfway into the door stopped for a second and then she glanced expressionlessly at the palace door, yawning silently before heading in.
Everyone else all bowed and lowered their heads, naturally unable to see her action except for the imperial secretary who came to call for her carelessly; he saw her action and felt strange all of a sudden. But he didn’t dare to say anything and also kept his head down.
Ye Yu was only halfway into the door when the door was slammed shut by the imperial secretary outside, making her purse her lips.
According to 《Night isn’t evil》’s plot, Xuan Yi had been known as someone ‘temperamental’ and ‘hedonistic.’ It was no wonder that besides his trusted aide and subordinate, everyone else in the devil palace was frightened of this youth Devil Emperor.
Thinking of this, she glanced at the front palace hall as well as the writing desk, but she was unable to find Xuan Yi. Therefore, Ye Yu continued to walk inside.
She bypassed the screen outlined in gold paint and saw the youth at first glance who was standing in the center of the palace hall and this made her hesitate.
Despite the fact that she was unable to feel any strange aura around her, she was uncertain whether Xuan Bin was using his cultivation or conscious to monitor the youth Devil Emperor’s palace.
Therefore, for safety precautions, should she pretend that she didn’t know Xuan Yi?
...Anti-science world makes it tiring for her.
But before Ye Yu could come to a conclusion regarding the issue, Xuan Yi had already moved and appeared in front of her, making her rather shocked.
“You…don’t you need to avoid me because that person might be monitoring the palace?”
When she asked this, the youth who didn’t even get a chance to talk yet remained unmoved, but he revealed a look of pride in his eyes.
“In this half a month, I have been working on studying meticulously about the palace and already made slight arrangements on the ancient map that I obtained from the underground palace. I had already set this palace up, so even if he tried to monitor, he would be deceived by my facade.”
Ye Yu was speechless.
He studied the ancient map meticulously but ended up using this to avoid the surveillance within the palace. The development of this was a bit scary.
Ye Yu cleared her throat and prepared to earnestly educate him when the youth spoke, “You don’t need to worry. I won’t abandon my plan and I know what’s most important. You don’t need to worry and you just need to stay by my side. I will make sure nothing happens to you.”
Ye Yu revealed a slight smile and held it in for 3 seconds before she couldn’t anymore.
“…What did you call me?”
Xuan Yi paused and then widened his eyes, looking at Ye Yu and revealed a questioning gaze. He acted exactly the same as 500 silvers, pretending like he couldn’t understand what she was saying.
Ye Yu was speechless.
“Do you know how many years older, this sister, is than you?”
Xuan Yi didn’t answer this, but silently shifted his gaze.
Due to family reasons during that time, Ye Yu had transferred schools 5 times when she was in the 2nd year of junior high school. She had also lived in a few different cities. When she finished middle school, she was still a few grades lower than people the same age as her.
