Chapter 69: Dog Grows Up (1)
“You, you want me to accompany you back to the palace?”
The devil emperor said this with a straight face, but obtained no response for a while. This made him displeased and couldn’t bother to act like he didn’t care. He cleared his throat and tried to look expressionlessly at Ye Yu.
Ye Yu snapped out of her trance after he cleared his throat. She looked down and softened her tone, saying, “Your highness, please allow me.”
Both Ye Yunsheng and Liao Qing were not used to the “bashful” and feminine-like voice as they were used to hearing the princess being tough and fierce.
But once they glanced at Xuan Yi, they noticed that not only wasn’t the emperor uncomfortable, but he almost couldn’t conceal the seeping happiness in his eyes.
Liao Qing wanted to cover his eyes.
Xuan Yi seemed to have detected his lack of control, so before Ye Yu raised her head, he shifted his gaze and softly coughed.
“Teacher Liao, do I still need the archery class for today?”
Although Liao Qing knew that the emperor had done nothing, he had no choice but to turn a blind eye.
“Yes, your majesty. You just need to finish the archery lesson.”
“I’ve been sparring with Crown Prince Ye lately and noticed that I’ve improved a lot. Therefore, I probably don’t need to spend too much time on this. What do you think, Teacher Liao?”
“…” Liao Qing continued to say expressionlessly, “Yes, your majesty. You don’t need to spend too much time on this.”
…Your majesty, since you wanted to leave so badly, why not do so right now?
Liao Qing rolled his eyes and thought in his mind.
Then, Liao Qing noticed that he was too innocent.
He nodded and then Xuan Yi seemingly carelessly glanced at Ye Yu, asking, “Do you understand archery?”
“…No.” Although Ye Yu didn’t understand why he was asking the question, he answered.
Xuan Yi’s eyes brightened.
“You haven’t seen anyone shoot either?”
Ye Yu was even more confused, but replied, “No.”
Xuan Yi was pleased and said, “Then observe by the field and I’ll teach you another day.”
Ye Yu was confused.
What did she say that gave Xuan Yi the hint that she wanted to observe or learn archery?
Before she could ask, the devil emperor wearing his archery uniform walked to the special training grounds for archery.
Ye Yu who didn’t understand why had no choice but to helplessly follow.
When Ye Yu walked far away and Ye Yunsheng realized that his consciousness couldn’t feel her existence, he sighed.
“I originally thought your highness and little sister have a normal relationship. But now that I look at it…young people’s actions and thoughts are hard to understand.”
“What’s hard to understand?” Liao Qing said expressionlessly, “I heard that to the north of the immortal city is a spiritual beast named “peacock.” It likes to spread its tail whenever it is free and relaxed, even doing so in front of their interested females. There are no new matters in the world, just similar things.”
Although Ye Yunsheng was an upright and honest person, he wasn’t old-fashioned. After hearing Liao Qing’s teasing words, he also laughed.
“Master Liao, you have wise opinions. This person admires you.”
Liao Qing looked around and then suddenly smiled at Ye Yunsheng, saying, “I’ve long heard that Crown Prince Ye likes to travel around the world and I’ve been wanting to learn from you for a while. Does Crown Prince Ye have time?”
“I am indebted to Master Liao for thinking highly of me. This person naturally will say everything he knows.”
“Haha…Crown Prince Ye is forthright and straightforward. This way, please.”
“Master Liao, behind you.”
There were about 20-30 archery platforms within the archery section of the training grounds. Half of the platforms were occupied and Xuan Yi walked towards the closest empty archery platform.
Without any exceptions, all the young noblemen and masters within the section knew cultivation. Long before, they had already detected Xuan Yi approaching them. Seeing hat they couldn’t avoid him now, they all walked forward to greet him.
There were some people who knew their manners and etiquettes, paying respects to the emperor before retreating to the side. However, there were some who relied on the regent, Xuan Bin’s orders, and revealed calm expressions before returning back to practice.
Ye Yu didn’t need to use the system to examine these people because she knew that they must be officials under Xuan Bin’s wings within the devil city.
Relying on the power that their families held, these people naturally didn’t hold any respect towards the powerless puppet emperor who had no cultivation either.
There were even some who glanced at her more respectfully than Xuan Yi.
Ye Yu was uncomfortable in this situation, but Xuan Yi had been accustomed to this.
Up until he walked to the archery platform and picked up a bow, checking its string and arrow tip, Xuan Yi’s expression was indifferent.
Even with Ye Yu’s cultivation, she could hear the low mocking voices occurring behind the archery platforms.
Ye Yu glanced at Xuan Yi’s back, feeling complicated.
Xuan Yi, right now, was just 4 years older than who he was in the last world. Even more, his personality and mental state was completely different…
“My host, do you feel bad for him?” The system secretly popped up and asked.
“…” Ye Yu’s gaze flickered and curled her lips, saying, “Why do you think I’m feeling bad?”
“My host, you’re overwhelmed with emotions, so you clearly feel bad…” The system said in a low voice.
“It’s not called feeling bad. It’s called reflecting.”
The system said, “Reflecting on what?”
Ye Yu glanced kindly and lovingly, saying, “Like…seeing my dog grow…”
The system was confused.
