Chapter 46: Aurora
The day Princess Ye entered the palace, Ye Yu was forced to wake up early.
There was no other reason but that the youth Devil Emperor who she had been living under the roof with for a while wanted to portray himself as someone “licentious and horny.” Therefore, he forcibly dragged the only beauty of the three that awake, which was Ye Yu, to the imperial garden to perform an “unrestrained” scene.
Despite Ye Yu thinking that it was an unbelievably dumb and stupid idea, Xuan Yi still persisted on trying out his idea.
Ye Yu who was dragged out of her captivating bed was still struggling and persuading, “Believe me. It’s fated that she’s going to fall in love with you at first sight. There’s no use doing this.”
“Love at first sight?”
Xuan Yi continued to pull her out of the palace expressionlessly and said, “I’ve met her more than once.”
“…Even if it’s hard to change fate, I think it is quite hard to fall in love at first sight with a dog too.”
Xuan Yi looked back at her, feeling speechless.
Ye Yu blinked her eyes innocently and said, “So, that doesn’t count.”
Xuan Yi turned around and pulled her out, saying, “Since my fate had changed slightly due to my appearance, I believe that it can happen again this time.”
Ye Yu was dumbstruck.
That’s why she said that brats this generation who have high IQ and were stubborn were the hardest to look after.
After an hour, Ye Yu was still pulled to the garden of the Devil Emperor’s interior palace.
In the morning’s slight breeze, Ye Yu expressionlessly shivered.
“Only you would be dedicated to illustrating a lascivious incapable ruler under this weather, seeking pleasure.”
“Are you cold?”
Ye Yu glanced at him and said, “…Didn’t you already set up the ancient formation around the palace which could deceive Xuan Bin’s monitoring? There are no outsiders here, so call me sister.”
Xuan Yi looked down and asked, “Why are you making me call you that?”
Ye Yu hesitated.
…Probably to supervise my consciousness and make sure I don’t easily fall under your spell?
But on the surface, she said as a matter of fact, “You need to respect your elders. What reason do I need to have?”
Before Ye Yu finished her words, she felt a warm hug looming over her from behind.
The black robe which represented the Devil Emperor went beyond her shoulders and wrapped Ye Yu in his arms.
Ye Yu was still confused when she heard the youth’s slightly hoarse voice, “She’s here.”
The desire to struggle was crushed while the idea was still sprouting.
Ye Yu held this in for half a minute but haven’t heard any movements.
“…Are you lying to me?”
“She stopped there.”
The youth slightly moved his sharp chin over and his warm breath sprayed on Ye Yu’s neck.
“She’s probably observing us.”
Ye Yu had no choice but to stand still.
By the pavilion, from outsiders’ perspectives, it seemed like these two people had their heads rubbed against each other and whispering, acting ambiguous. In reality, they were quiet the entire time.
Half a second later, Ye Yu asked, “Don’t you think…it’s a bit awkward?”
“In the past, there were times when we were quiet too. It wasn’t awkward. “
Ye Yu was speechless.
The problem was that you were a dog in the past and you were lying in my arms.
In order to get along peacefully, Ye Yu swallowed her words.
She continued in a more tactful way, “But I’m feeling awkward.”
“Then say something.”
Xuan Yi looked at the sky. It was indeed a bit too early and the deep blue sky still had some traces of stars.
The pure and clear youth’s voice rang by Ye Yu’s ears, explaining to her each star’s position, message, and its fortune.
Ye Yu quietly listened to this for half an hour and finally confirmed something.
There was a reason why she hadn’t dated anyone even until death in her past life.
Although it seemed to be romantic, the only purpose to her was putting her to sleep.
“…Let me tell you something.”
Xuan Yi was stunned and glanced at her, asking, “You don’t like listening to this?”
Ye Yu yawned and said, “If you tell me that again, I can sleep until this afternoon.”
Xuan Yi was speechless.
Ye Yu didn’t bother to pay attention to the youth and his sadness.
“Is there aurora here?”
“Aurora? What’s that?”
“…In my hometown, Aurora is the most beautiful scene in the world. It’s bright and multicolored, dazzling and colorful. It changes unpredictably and it’s hard to explain in words.”
Speaking of this, Ye Yu chuckled. But the indigenous people who were able to see the aurora held the firm belief that aurora meant the presence of divines. They believed that the quickly moving aurora would reveal the noise of the devil walking through the air, taking someone’s soul and leaving bad luck.”
“Are their beliefs fake?”
“Could the most beautiful aurora really take away one’s soul and leave bad luck?”
Ye Yu was stunned as the question was clearly beyond the scope of her knowledge. She wasn’t prepared for that.
But after a slight pause, she recovered her relaxing smile and said, “Maybe. After all, in this world, the more beautiful something is, the more dangerous they are.”
“Ah…” The youth sighed with feelings, asking, “Is that so?”
“How about sister?”
“…?” Ye Yu glanced to the side and made eye contact with a pair of pitch-black eyes. The owner of the eyes smiled and his eyes slightly sparkled.
“Sister, you’re like the aurora. So, are you the most dangerous too?”
