Chapter 47: Choice (1)
“Sister, you’re like the aurora. So, are you the most dangerous too?”
Meeting the eyes sparkling brighter than the stars, Ye Yu couldn’t help but sink into his eyes. It was hard for her to imagine that the youth with the cleanest and clearest eyes right now could coldly say “it’s just 3,000 people” in the future.
When that day comes, the pair of beautiful eyes would probably become gloomy and light wouldn’t even be able to enter anymore.
…What a pity.
Thinking of this, Ye Yu slightly pursed her lips.
She looked down and smiled, “This sister’s appearance is a long way from being the “dangerous” type of pretty. Therefore, you don’t need to be afraid, young comrade.”
Although Xuan Yi didn’t understand her obviously teasing address, he could still guess her words.
Xuan Yi looked down and the laugh was mixed with the youth’s distinctive hoarse voice.
“Sister, you’re the most beautiful in my eyes.”
Ye Yu squinted her eyes a bit and said, “Sorry that you have to look at my face which even I can’t recognize daily.”
Xuan Yi was stunned and then a second later, the youth who was holding Ye Yu in his arms trembled in laughter.
Ye Yu looked over and asked, “Why are you laughing?”
Xuan Yi laughed for a while before becoming normal, explaining, “You misunderstood me. I said that you’re the most beautiful, but I don’t mean just your appearance.” The youth stopped and turned to the side, moving closer to Ye Yu’s face.
Ye Yu slightly froze and although she wanted to follow her instinct and take a step back, her conscious had minded her that there was a loyal audience, Princess Ye, who was watching this show. Therefore, she had to continue to perform this.
Thankfully, Xuan Yi stopped and left an inch between them. They were so close that they could feel each other’s breath, but at least they weren’t on each other. Ye Yu sighed in relief in her heart.
Not sure whether Xuan Yi had seen through her mental changes, but his eyes sparkled some more, smiling. The youth’s voice was slightly hoarse and mixed with a smile, saying, “I’m saying that the most beautiful person is looking at me right now. It’s you who is hiding in my eyes…It has nothing to do with anything else.”
Ye Yu was stunned and then she snapped out of her trance, looking down and refusing to cooperate, not meeting Xuan Yi’s gaze.
Xuan Yi’s gaze slightly flickered and he raised his chin unknowingly, kissing the corner of Ye Yu’s lips and trembling a bit.
Ye Yu was frozen for a whole 5 seconds and when she snapped out of her trance, she was about to explode when she detected the person in front of her buying himself between her shoulders.
“This time, she’s really here.”
Ye Yu was flabbergasted.
So, he was lying before?
Ye Yu who was rarely angry didn’t notice that the youth burying himself in her shoulders had flushed ears.
Moments later, they heard an imperial secretary’s awkward voice, “Devil Emperor… Ye Residence’s Princess Ye is here to greet you.”
A familiar female voice opened her mouth as soon as the imperial secretary was done. “Ye Residence, Ye Yu, greets the Emperor.” It was hard to detect the slight disdain in her gentle and sweet voice.
Ye Yu curled her lips… she was still the arrogant Princess Ye. Relying on Xuan Bin’s favoring of the Ye Residence, she already didn’t place this puppet youth Devil Emperor in her eyes?
No wonder that Ye Residence landed itself with a tragic ending by the princess. Since Ye Yu could hear the underlying tone, Xuan Yi who had been familiar towards this environment and attitude naturally understood as well.
However, he stood up straight and one couldn’t see a tint of anger in his bright pitch-black eyes at all. Instead, it was faint and there were no emotions.
The youth Devil Emperor suddenly turned around and glanced at Princess Ye who was under the pavilion. He looked at her as if towering above her.
“Since you’re “greeting me,” why didn’t you kowtow?”
Princess Ye who was standing outside the pavilion looked up slightly in shock and when she met the youth Devil Emperor’s glance, she felt stunned.
