36 Respected Elder Ming’s eyes lit up. “It’s a letter from your Princess Consort! Hurry up and open it to see!”
Rong Xiu’s lips slightly curved up, and he took the letter. His long fingers then gently swiped across the envelope, and he suddenly paused.
Rong Xiu looked up and glanced at 36 Respected Elder Ming at the side. “Are you planning to read this letter too?”
“Well, of—” said 36 Respected Elder Ming unwittingly. Afterward, he realized that something was inappropriate, so he hurriedly coughed. “It’s okay! It’s okay! Since it’s a letter for you, it’s naturally inappropriate for me to read it! You can do it! You can do it!”
Then, he moved a step back.
Rong Xiu opened it.
There was only one line of words on the letter: Our tossing and turning hearts are in line as the moon is still bright miles apart.
Rong Xiu held that letter, looked at that sentence, and thought about the memories that kept troubling his heart. His fingers curled slightly. Even though there is only one sentence, it’s more than enough for me.
36 Respected Elder Ming stood at the side and watched as Rong Xiu became an entirely different person after opening that letter. The latter’s harsh, murderous aura disappeared, and his brows relaxed—it looked like the ice that melted at the start of spring.
This kind of Rong Xiu was never before seen.
36 Respected Elder Ming sighed in his heart and couldn’t help but be more curious. What kind of woman can make him so in love with her?
He wanted to inch over to look at the letter, but he still gave up in the end. There’s not much meaning for an oldie like me to look at the love letter between a small couple. But seeing that Rong Xiu is in such a good mood… I can make a request.
“Um… Your Highness, since the Princess Consort has already personally written you a letter, do you really not want to see her? Youngsters should meet more often!”
Rong Xiu read the letter twice again before putting it away carefully. Afterward, he looked at 36 Respected Elder Ming and asked in understanding, “You want to go with me?”
After having his thoughts exposed, 36 Respected Elder Ming was embarrassed for a while, but he quickly nodded. “Yeah! Anyway, I have nothing to do lately, so why don’t I go take a look—”
Rong Xiu thought for a moment and laughed slightly. “She should be the busiest around now. I don’t think it’s very suitable to go over now.” I naturally miss her a lot, but with my current status… It’s quite troublesome for me to go over legitimately.
Disappointment flashed across 36 Respected Elder Ming’s face. He paused for a while and indignantly asked, “Are you really not going?”
Rong Xiu was actually waiting for Chu Liuyue to settle down in Xi Ling before going over. But just as he was about to nod, he saw Yan Qing’s hesitant expression.
“Your Highness, there’s something I don’t know if I should say…”
Rong Xiu narrowed his eyes. “It’s related to Xi Ling?”
Yan Qing nodded.
“Just speak,” said Rong Xiu lightly.
This Xi Ling actually referred to Chu Liuyue. Since it was news about her, he naturally had to listen to it.
Yan Qing hesitated for a moment and said, “Recently… there’s been a weird youngster around Ms. Liuyue…”
Rong Xiu suddenly paused in his actions.
Right on the heels of it, Yan Qing told his master about whatever he saw that day. Every sentence he mentioned caused Rong Xiu’s face to darken by a shade.
“…When I went to ask around afterward, I heard that Ms. Liuyue met him at the Wan Zheng Competition… It seems like… seems like…” Yan Qing’s voice gradually became softer.
“Seems like what?” Rong Xiu asked.
A chill ran down Yan Qing’s spine, but he still honestly said, “…They seem like they get along very well… Ms. Liuyue seems to be treating that youngster as her servant…”
Servant? She always does things swiftly, and she can basically handle everything on her own. Why would she want a servant out of nowhere? Besides, even though she looks like she treats people politely and humbly, she actually admires very few people. Yet, that youngster can be so close to her. It’s clear that she trusts him. Rong Xiu didn’t have much of an expression as his fingers tapped on the letter twice. “Go inform Yu Mo to follow me to Xi Ling.”
Yan Qing said hurriedly, “Yes! Your Highness, when do you plan to go—”
Before he could finish asking, Rong Xiu lightly glanced at him. “I’ll give you an hour to pack.”
Yan Qing’s heart skipped a beat. “I’ll go right away!”
Then, he quickly stood up and left.
Seeing his figure disappear, 36 Respected Elder Ming chuckled and teased, “Your Highness, didn’t you just say that the Princess Consort has been very busy lately and that you’d only go look for her after a while?”
“It’s precisely because she’s busy that I’m going to help her personally.” Rong Xiu’s long lashes moved slightly. She also won’t need to find any servants.
36 Respected Elder Ming rubbed his hands excitedly. “I’ll go too!”
Rong Xiu looked at him. “Respected Elder, now that Peerless Palace’s problem has just been settled and that there are many things that require one to supervise after this… I think you’re the most suited for this, right?”
36 Respected Elder Ming’s face immediately collapsed. What else is there to do? After today’s scene, Tong Chuan and the rest will be obedient for quite some time! This kid just doesn’t want me to go!
He coughed. “I assure you that I’ll just look at her once and that I definitely won’t intervene!”
Rong Xiu thought of something, and his eyes changed slightly before he finally nodded. “Sure.”
Currently, Chu Liuyue naturally didn’t know that Rong Xiu was planning to rush over from miles away. She had spent all her efforts on the Cloud-Sky Copper Sword.
The night sky hung low, and the stars were dazzling brightly.
The Heaven and Earth Force kept gathering on the star stone.
Chu Liuyue was currently standing on it and refining the longsword properly.
