Chapter 92: Superficial Couple (2)
Moments later, he shifted his gaze and said, “…So, you’re deciding to go to the Jian Sect because of me?”
Ye Yu was bewildered.
She didn’t know why, but although this explanation reluctantly makes sense, Xuan Yi’s tone and reaction…made Ye Yu feel like he had misunderstood something.
Xuan Yi was still in a good mood, despite not obtaining an enthusiastic response. He glanced back at Ye Yu and said, “Will sister hurt or betray me?”
His eyes were bright and clear and Ye Yu almost felt as if he was the young man from her past life.
She almost immediately said without thinking, “I won’t.”
Xuan Yi’s harmless expression faded and he became happy, curling his lips up and smiling.
“Then I’ll believe in my sister for the last time.”
Ye Yu was unable to process whether Xuan Yi was doing that on purpose or not after personally watching as the harmless young man became the devil emperor full of schemes.
Xuan Yi’s gaze followed Ye Yu’s figure and he gripped her wrist more tightly.
Holding onto the irrational thoughts and impulse, Xuan Yi turned around and said, “You knew that I don’t want —”
Before he finished his words, the horse carriage stopped.
The retinue outside the window said in a low voice, “Your majesty, we’re at the tavern.”
Xuan Yi’s gaze slightly changed, but after a while, he slowly loosened his grip and glanced deeply at Ye Yu before returning around and getting out of the horse carriage.
When she was the only one left within the empty horse carriage, Ye Yu slowly sighed, exhaling.
It seemed like a century long before the heartbeat thumping in her ears slowly calmed down.
When she regained her consciousness, she slowly grinded her teeth and then eunciated each word, “Pitfall system — If you dare to act dead again, I will crush this stupid system carrier!”
The next morning, Ye Yu walked out of her room with bags under her eyes.
There was too much information to process and so, she accidentally suffered from insomnia the entire night.
Before entering the horse carriage, she was wondering how to handle Xuan Yi if she made connections with the development of last night. She also wondered how to avoid the pitfall system and the issue of her existence.
What surprised her was that Xuan Yi, who had been resting in the horse carriage acted like nothing happened when he saw her reaction.
If it weren’t that she hadn’t slept the entire night, Ye Yu would’ve doubted herself, thinking that it was just a dream.
When the horse carriage brought them out of the Feng Huan City, Ye Yu glanced in the direction they were heading. Although she had a hunch, she still asked, “Where is your majesty heading to?”
Xuan Yi didn’t even open his eyes, saying faintly, “Jian Sect.”
Ye Yu was speechless.
Last night, she really shouldn’t blame herself for not noticing earlier. How was he any similar to the 500 silvers she knew from her past life?
Despite being quite angry, Ye Yu still treasured the facade that she worked so hard to keep up since last night, acting like a “superficial couple” and “peaceful.”
She softly chuckled and said, “Does your majesty also plan to enter the selection for Jian Sect’s disciple?”
Hearing this, Xuan Yi finally reacted.
He opened his eyes and he trained his black and bright eyes on Ye Yu, saying, “Haven’t you figured out my plans after telling fortune to me?”
It was rare that Ye Yu didn’t bother to bicker over his disrespect for his elder, and she explained, “I can only calculate people’s original fate. Since your majesty’s fate has already been changed, no matter what plans you have, I won’t know. Your majesty, please be comforted.”
Just like how she never thought he would have recognized her.
In reality, after a night of consideration, Xuan Yi had thought through this point.
Xuan Yi had caught Ye Yu’s shock after he exposed her. As expected, even after he touched her, she really wasn’t able to tell that he could remember his past.
“Since you didn’t figure out my plan, why did you decide to be a part of the Jian Sect?”
Ye Yu said, “Although I can’t read your majesty’s plan, I still know about the other worldly matters.”
Ye Yu paused before looking down and saying, “For example, there is something extremely important within the Jian Sect that can help your majesty break through the Primal Chaos Realm.”
After hearing Ye Yu’s words, Xuan Yi’s gaze flickered.
She expressionlessly turned around.
The world changed. The trust between human and puppy doesn’t exist either.
