Chapter 73: Pounce on Him (1)
Hearing Ye Yu’s words, Xuan Yi’s expression deepened.
“Liao Qing mentioned this to you?”
“…” Ye Yu felt a twinge of guilt while glancing at Xuan Yi.
Recalling the two people behind her while she was heading towards the shooting platform, Ye Yu met Xuan Yi’s gaze confidently. “Mr. Liao had mentioned this to my elder brother and I inadvertently heard it.”
Xuan Yi stopped talking.
Ye Yu slightly looked down and probed the system in her heart at the same time, “How does Princess Ye address Xuan Bin?”
“Uncle Xuan.” The system didn’t dare to delay and hurriedly answered.
Ye Yu glanced up and smiled, saying, “I know that Uncle Xuan is usually strict towards teaching his nephew. Since your majesty doesn’t feel comfortable asking, I can ask for you.” After a short pause, Ye Yu added, “My elder brother has been touring for a while, so he’s not that close to Uncle Xuan. It’s better if I speak for you. Your majesty knows this.”
Xuan Yi’s fingers that were hidden under the robe sleeves clenched into fists.
He looked away and said, “…There’s no need.”
Ye Yu was confused.
If in the past, she thought that Xuan Yi had been holding a grudge against the attack, then she was extremely confused right now. According to her understanding of Xuan Yi, this person was definitely not someone to mix personal grudges with retribution.
Therefore, how could he abandon this great opportunity due to a small matter?
The system became even more anxious and asked, “My host, what should we do now?”
Ye Yu snapped out of her trance and lowered her gaze, saying in a low voice, “I’ll listen to your majesty.”
Even as the horse carriage entered the palace, the system was still probing Ye Yu.
Ye Yu was annoyed by the probe and looked up to see the figure walking in front of her.
She looked back down again and said, “Who said that I need Xuan Yi’s permission to talk to Xuan Bin?”
The system was stunned and asked, “Then why does the host…”
“I just need Xuan Yi to understand how I got to know this.” Ye Yu curled her lips.
“Regarding the rest…Princess Ye likes Xuan Yi to the point she could do anything for him. Within the devil city, who doesn’t know this?”
“So, that’s the case!” The system said, coming to a realization. Then, it continued to kiss up and said, “Host, you’re very brilliant.”
News of Qi Song being punished by Princes Ye because he had offended the devil emperor had spread within the devil city within a few days and became the topic of heated discussion.
Even Ye Yu could hear the imperial secretaries discussing this within the palace from time to time.
However, not only didn’t she stop this, she allowed this to continue.
When the news intensified, Ye Yu picked a warm and sunny day out and notified the retinue or the guard, Ye Sheng, in advance. Then, while Xuan Yi went to the teaching grounds, she got in the horse carriage heading towards the General’s residence.
As she followed the servant into the back courtyard of the General’s residence, she could still hear the system mutter in her ears, “My host, are you really not nervous? According to the roles, even though Xuan Bin isn’t cunning and crafty like an old fox, he was definitely ruthless and cruel…The more I think about it, the more dangerous this mission is. If we’re not careful, there might be two dead bodies. My host, why don’t you consider a backup plan?…at least increase the success rate?”
“…” Ye Yu had been holding in her anger the entire way and now even her forehead was twitching a bit. “If you can shut up, the success rate will probably be very high.”
The system replied, “Host, you’ve never seen Xuan Bin before. Therefore, how can you act so calm and unhurried? Even if you don’t consider the possibility of being exposed, this is also an unfair negotiation…”
“If you’re referring to Xuan Bin and my cultivation and status, let me tell you. I’ve encountered this kind of situation countless times.”
“What?” The system was surprised.
Ye Yu was speechless, but she explained, “After all, I had been in the Public Relations Department for two years. I’ve attended all sorts of sponsor events, campus exhibitions, and publicities of various activities. You really think that the rich show up by themselves?”
