Chapter 907: Of Course Not

Jiang Yucheng’s eyes shrunk slightly, and a faint light rapidly flashed across his eyes before disappearing the next moment.

After a while, he said, “Nope.”

Chu Liuyue knitted her brows slightly.

Actually, she had a long dream on the night she exposed her identity and officially ascended the throne.

The dream was in bits and pieces, and they were discontinuous parts. After she woke up, she forgot most of it and only vaguely remembered a few scenes.

Other than the octagonal pavilion she had once seen beside the cliff, there were still many unfamiliar scenes in her dream. She had never been to those places before, but she found them extra familiar for some reason.

The key was that she remembered the details of some scenes very clearly. It was like… she had seen them before.

After she woke up, she tried to draw these scenes. But the moment she lifted the brush, she forgot everything completely. Not even a vague outline remained.

Other than the octagonal pavilion on the cliff, all the other places became a blur. Other than this, the clearest view was actually Thousand View Garden.

She dreamed that she stood beside the lake and that Jiang Yucheng was standing in front of her. She seemed to have vaguely said a sentence with some sensitive terms.

Marriage agreement, cancellation, agreement…

Chu Liuyue thought of it for a very long time after she woke up, and she felt that this wasn’t completely a dream. Perhaps many things inside were related to the portion of memory she had lost!

If all those had actually happened before… Chu Liuyue guessed that she wanted to cancel the marriage agreement when she went to find Jiang Yucheng back then.

After a few days, she then came here to meet him and ask the question. However, she didn’t expect Jiang Yucheng to deny it.

Chu Liuyue didn’t believe him completely and asked again, “Really?”

Jiang Yucheng saw her doubtful appearance and suddenly revealed a strange smile for some reason. “Given things are in this state, why should I lie to you about this?”

Back then, she truly didn’t say that she wanted to cancel the marriage agreement. This was because they had just picked a time to set the marriage agreement, but she then found him to cancel this agreement before they could even do it.

She just said it was because she had someone she liked. However, she still settled the marriage agreement in the end.

But that was afterward.

Her asking such a question clearly meant that she had completely forgotten about what happened back then.

Jiang Yucheng had no interest in explaining anything, much less repeating whatever happened back then. After all, those experiences were nothing worth remembering and recalling for him.

Chu Liuyue sized Jiang Yucheng up and kept thinking if his words were true.

“Yesterday, the Jiang family’s residence was seized. She suddenly changed the topic.

Jiang Yucheng’s expression stiffened for a moment, but it disappeared the next moment as his eyes showed a faint bloody red. However, he controlled his entire expression very well as if he had nothing to do with this.

In actual fact, the moment he was dragged to see the Jiang family being executed, he had predicted all of this.

Or perhaps he had thought of such a scenario from the moment he decided to attack her. However, he was always confident in the past and thought that he wouldn’t mess up, let alone that she could still come back alive.

“They all died because of you.” Chu Liuyue looked at him. “Before your sister—Jiang Yuzhi—died, she was still yelling your name. You should’ve heard it, right?”

Jiang Yucheng’s veins throbbed. Of course, I heard it—loud and clear!

Blood covered the floor back then, and the tens of energetic lives suddenly lost their vitality the next moment, leaving behind a pool of nothingness.

Jiang Yucheng gradually closed his eyes. When he opened them again, the emotions had completely disappeared, leaving behind cold nonchalance.

“The winner is king, and losers are nothing. This is your revenge against me; I’ll take it.”

No matter how much he begged for a savior and mercy, it couldn’t change the outcome.

Usurping the throne and all his other crimes… Not to mention Chu Liuyue, anybody else related to this wouldn’t let him off easily!

Besides, his pearl of essence was now broken, and he was covered in injuries. He couldn’t even be compared to a normal person. What else could he do other than be sorrowful and angry?

And all of this actually had no use since it just gave him more pain.

After turning numb, he became much better.

Chu Liuyue smiled. Jiang Yucheng could really look past this, or perhaps he is sufficiently cold and selfish. It’s clearly him who implicated the thousands of people in the entire Jiang family, but in the end, he doesn’t seem regretful at all.

This was because he didn’t even care about those people! It was the same for even his parents and biological sister. He might have some love for them, but he still cared about himself the most.

If someone else had met with this incident, they would’ve committed suicide as they couldn’t tolerate the pressure from the guilt and self-reproach.

But Jiang Yucheng did not. From a certain angle, he could be considered quite the character.

If he didn’t have such a mental capacity and abilities, how could he silently prepare everything back then and betray her in one shot?!

“I found this in your study.” Chu Liuyue suddenly took out a rectangular wooden box.

As they were afraid that the Jiang family still had some dangerous items, Qin Yi had also followed them over during the search.

Later on, he sent this item over.

When Jiang Yucheng saw that wooden box, her expression cracked for a moment.

Chu Liuyue glanced at him, opened the wooden box, and took out a scroll. Her hands then shook slightly, and the painting instantly expanded!

It was a painting of a woman—Shangguan Yue from back then!

When Chu Liuyue saw this portrait, she was also quite stunned.

From the appearance of this painting and the footer, it seemed like Jiang Yucheng had painted it on the day she became of marriageable age.

Jiang Yucheng’s so-called thinking of me for ten years—which Shangguan Wan previously mentioned—should be referring to this. Chu Liuyue curled her lips into a half-smile. “I didn’t know that you would actually leave behind such a thing after you attacked me back then.”

Jiang Yucheng’s face paled for a moment as if someone had exposed the secret that he had buried for a long time, and he seemed lost.

He admitted that he did like her. If not, there wouldn’t be a marriage agreement in the first place.

But now that she suddenly produced this painting, he felt very awkward for some reason.

“Don’t worry. I’m not interested in your ten years of longing,” said Chu Liuyue lazily, but her gaze was as sharp as a knife. “I want to ask you: When exactly did you decide to betray me?”

There was no love in this world that came without a reason nor hatred that came from nowhere.

Chu Liuyue didn’t really believe it if Jiang Yucheng said he did it for the throne. If he got married to her, he could still get the power he desired.

The more he liked her back then, the more it proved that a shocking secret hid behind this heart-wrenching betrayal!
