Chapter 68: Jealousy (2)
“Your highness —”
Liao Qing had caught up to him now.
Seeing Xuan Yi knitting his eyebrows deeply in a certain direction, Liao Qing instinctively looked over.
After he glanced at the people, Liao Qing was shocked himself. “Why did the princess come to the teaching grounds?…She’s here for Ye Yunsheng?”
Xuan Yi sucked in a breath before swallowing “how come she couldn’t be here to look for me?”
He expressionlessly glanced at Liao Qing before heading straight for the two.
Liao Qing seemed innocent and remained stunned in his spot before reacting and hurried over.
At this time, Ye Yu was trying her best to become closer to Ye Yunsheng when she suddenly felt a shadow looming over her.
She turned around and froze when she saw who it was.
…uh, his gaze was quite gloomy and stern.
Ye Yu felt guilty and couldn’t help but avoid his gaze, murmuring to the system, “Does he hate me that badly because I kicked him?…In the original novel, shouldn’t Xuan Yi act as if he likes Princess Ye a lot right now?”
The system stayed silent for a while before saying, “My host, this is the first time I’ve seen you like this too.”
Ye Yu was speechless.
“Why did you come here?”
The male voice was a bit hoarse and his tone seemed to be mixed with a certain feeling.
He even glanced at the woman’s pitch-black eyes with a sparkling and passionate fiery gaze.
Ye Yu was unable to follow and continued to learn from the system in her heart. “How should I be reacting when I see someone I like?”
The system hesitated and said, “Smile…smile?”
Ye Yu thought about it and nodded, agreeing in her heart.
Then, she looked up, glancing at Xuan Yi and tugging a splendid smile on. “I heard that your majesty and elder brother Yunsheng are sparring in the teaching grounds and I specially came over to view this.”
The words seemed to have influenced the devil emperor’s certain feelings. His face became gloomier.
Even Ye Yunsheng who had seen the change of expression had moved to the side, feeling a certain coldness behind his back.
Ye Yu was also terrified, stiffly smiling. She murmured to the system, “If you smile at someone you like, then to what extent do you think he hates Princess Ye?”
The system replied, “Hm…to the point where he wants to skin her alive, eat her meat and drink her blood?”
Ye Yu felt bitter and hateful, saying, “I’m completing this mission with my life.”
The system said, “…I will do my best to win the mission rewards for my host.”
When she heard this, Ye Yu’s smile became even more charming and she looked at Xuan Yi.
“Your majesty’s sparring with elder brother Yunsheng has ended?”
Xuan Yi knitted his eyebrows, but didn’t say anything. Instead, he looked towards the side and Liao Qing who received the threatening gaze immediately replied, “Although it ended, your majesty didn’t complete today’s cultivating class yet.”
Ye Yu glanced over and asked, “This is…?”
“I’m Liao Qing, your majesty’s cultivating teacher.”
Liao Qing slightly bowed at Ye Yu, but this made her expression change.
“Master Liao Qing ah…I’ve heard of your name for a long time.”
She smiled on the surface, but she couldn’t help but ask the system, “Didn’t Liao Qing get promoted after Xuan Yi came back from the immortal city? How come he’s already Xuan Yi’s cultivating teacher now?”
The system was also confused. “The plot seemed to be deviating again, but thankfully, it isn’t a huge issue. My host, please be careful.”
After listening the useless nonsense, Ye Yu was about to express her displeasure, when she heard Xuan Yi saying in an unpleasant tone, “Liao Qing had only been by my side for a few years, so how did you hear of his name already?”
This tone made Ye Yu who had been holding in a lot of anger raise her head immediately. She faintly smiled and retorted, “This is just the basic politeness ah, your majesty.”
The familiar tone made Xuan Yi stunned.
This was the first time Liao Qing had heard someone dare to oppose the emperor, so he couldn’t help but look at Ye Yu, shocked. Then, he glanced at Xuan Yi and noticed that a tint of happiness seemed to flicker by in his eyes.
Liao Qing was speechless. He must be blind.
On the other hand, Ye Yu who had been reminded by the system to “respect the role” tried her best to soften her expression.
“Since your majesty isn’t done with your lesson, then I’ll wait for your majesty, so we can return to the palace together.”
Liao Qing almost couldn’t help but oppose the decision, but knowing that the emperor would’ve rejected him, he held in the urge.
Then, he heard the emperor say in a magnetic and attractive voice, “You, you want me to accompany you back to the palace?”
Liao Qing was confused.
It’s one thing that you didn’t reject her, but how come you’re stuttering now, your majesty?
Ye Yu didn’t react either, a bit absent-minded. She blinked her eyes and didn’t hurry to talk, asking her advisor in her heart, “How do you think Xuan Yi feels right now?”
The system rummaged through the data and answered properly, “He’s probably clenching his teeth right now. My host, listen. He stuttered.”
Ye Yu nodded, agreeing deeply.
The author has something to say:
Puppy: …No, I didn’t. You’re lying!
