Chapter 52: Second Transmigration (1)
When she saw the figure by the folding screen, Ye Yu’s heart was in panic mode.
Because at this moment, she suddenly thought of what might lead to the collapse of the storyline.
What a pity that even though she realized what it was, everything was happening already.
She couldn’t stop the storyline from proceeding in the direction of the collapse.
Ye Yu had been overwhelmed with emotions and she finally gradually calmed down.
She glanced at and the figure standing by the folding screen and glancing towards her was Princess Ye. The latter didn’t even conceal the murderous intent in her eyes and Ye Yu was more than familiar with this gaze.
After all, not even 2 months ago, in the devil city’s An Xiang Teahouse, she also felt this murderous aura in close range.
Plus, it had revealed itself in a whole different status.
…She and this Princess Ye really have an ill-fated relationship.
Thinking of this, Ye Yu couldn’t help but softly chuckle.
Princess Ye who had already raised her right palm knitted her eyebrows and looked unhappily at the woman sitting on the Devil Emperor’s bed, saying, “What are you laughing at?”
“I’m just laughing at our intertwined fate.”
Princess Ye knitted her eyebrows.
Whether she was pretending to act confident or knew what to expect, she could distinguish it clearly. Then right now, where did this cheerful and calm woman get her confidence from?
Princess Ye instinctively went over her plan after entering the palace and still didn’t find any loopholes. Her face became more and more gloomier.
“Princess, you don’t need to worry.” As if seeing through her uneasiness, Ye Yu who sat on the bed placed her neat hands on the sides of the bed, acting calm and undisturbed.
She even laughed and said, “As you’ve seen, I’m just a weak and ordinary woman. If you want to kill me, I have no means of retaliating.”
After hearing this, Princess Ye became even more alert.
After 2 seconds, she also laughed; however, her gaze turned cold.
“Are you planning on putting my guard down and then trying to stall time?”
Ye Yu blinked her eyes and nodded as though seriously, “Maybe.”
Princess Ye’s face turned green and she said, “Well, I have no idea who you can rely on.”
Ye Yu didn’t hurry to respond, but asked another question instead. “Did princess ever enter the Devil Emperor’s palace?”
“…Of course not.”
Following the words, Princess Ye cautiously glanced around her surroundings but came up empty-handed. She glanced coldly at the woman on the bed, feeling a bit annoyed. “If you want to stall time like this, let me tell you. It won’t do anything.”
“Oh?” Ye Yu lazily smiled and as she half-closed her eyes and she said, “Maybe someone will conveniently come to save me.”
Princess Ye’s expression froze before she looked up and smiled after a few seconds.
“You couldn’t be expecting the youth Devil Emperor to come save you right? Don’t you know that he’s at the teaching grounds now?… Plus, the two teachers will definitely do their best to stall the time. Do you know why? Because —”
“Because of Xuan Bin’s orders.”
Ye Yu calmly interrupted Princess Ye’s words.
Under the other party’s shocked gazes, Ye Yu tilted his head and curled her lips up into a smile. “Let’s stop wasting time on these retarded questions. I’m just doing this for you, princess. You don’t have much time left.”
Meeting Ye Yu’s calm expression, the princess who was young and inexperienced finally couldn’t help but feel a bit frightened.
She clutched her palm and said, “The youth Devil Emperor won’t know what happens here at all.”
“So, that’s why I asked if you have ever come to the Devil Emperor’s palace.” Ye Yu smiled and said, “Since you never came here, how do you know that he didn’t set up a boundary which will alert him of someone’s arrival?”
Princess Ye coldly humphed and said, “What is this joke? Uncle Xuan already destroyed Xuan Yi’s cultivation. How could he possibly —”
Princess Ye paused and at that moment, she thought of an extremely frightening possibility that originally shouldn’t even be in the boundary of consideration.
Despite this possibility being extremely slim, according to the situation right now, only this possibility could explain why the woman in front of her was so calm and confident.
“Ah, it seems like princess already guessed it.” Ye Yu smiled and squinted her eyes, like a harmless cat.
“Impossible…” Princess Ye murmured and said, “Even if he got his cultivation back, the two teachers are clearly in the Infant and Youth Realm. Xuan Yi wouldn’t be their match…look at how old he is…”
Towards the end, Princess Ye’s expression changed.
She concentrated her gaze and her beautiful and delicate face became a bit distorted.
“Even if he was aware of this, the two teachers would definitely be able to stall him. I just need…”
