Chapter 913: Gave Her Rong Xiu
Suddenly, Thirteen’s voice trailed off, and he stopped in his tracks. He watched the scene in front of him in shock. Someone is already holding the umbrella for Her Highness! The key point is that he’s even hugging Her Highness! With their intimate actions, anyone can tell that the pair have an extraordinary relationship!
“W-who are you?!” Thirteen originally came to take Chu Liuyue back to the palace happily, but his entire person became disoriented when he suddenly saw this scene.
Without waiting for Chu Liuyue to speak, Rong Xiu raised his brows slightly and said lightly, “I’m Yue’er’s fiancé.”
“Y-you… You’re Her Highness’s fiancé?!” Thirteen widened his eyes in shock and opened his mouth. Didn’t Her Highness just settle Jiang Yucheng and Shangguan Wan? Where did this fiancé suddenly come from?
As Thirteen was young, nobody had told him about this matter. Thus, he was especially shocked when he saw them.
However, Chu Liuyue was thinking about what Thirteen had just said. He seems to have said… Supreme Emperor? With Rong Xiu’s intelligence, he will definitely notice that something is amiss after hearing this sentence and will thus guess my identity!
As expected, Rong Xiu slowly and directly asked, “Who did you say asked to fetch Yue’er back?”
Chu Liuyue’s eyelids twitched.
Thirteen was about to respond when he saw that Her Highness’s expression was amiss and hurriedly covered his mouth.
“Um… Rong Xiu, I have something to tell you…” Chu Liuyue originally wanted to find an appropriate time to tell him the entire story, but she didn’t expect this to happen the moment they met…
In that case, I definitely have to say it!
Rong Xiu looked down at her and saw her embarrassment, causing his lips to curl up undetectably. Is she feeling awkward because she didn’t honestly tell me about those things before?
“Hm?” Rong Xiu’s voice was deep, and this low questioning tone came from his chest as it tightly pressed down on his heart and brushed past one’s ears.
It was pleasant to the ears.
Chu Liuyue’s face blushed slightly, but she gently and determinedly held his hand and intertwined their fingers. “Follow me.”
Six Clouds Street, Chu Residence.
As the rain came suddenly, the peaceful and relaxing yard already had a layer of rainwater.
The rain droplets from the roof kept falling into the puddle, causing ripples.
The post-rain air had a tinge of sweetness to the humidity.
Thirteen stood outside and waited frustratedly and uneasily, continuously glancing at the shut door from time to time. Her Highness has gone in with that man for quite some time and hasn’t come out yet. Hearing what Her Highness said, it seems like she’s explaining something to that man? But Her Highness has been distinguished since birth and is harsh and decisive. Since when did she need to explain so much to others? And… the key is that the man is actually Her Highness’s fiancé!
Thirteen scratched his ear and cheeks. Seventh Brother and the rest didn’t talk about this before… I’ve grown up in Xi Ling City, so I’m very sure that the man isn’t a local. But judging by his surrounding aura, he isn’t one to be underestimated.
Thirteen looked inside again and scratched his head.
“…This was what I wanted to tell you.”
Chu Liuyue and Rong Xiu sat opposite each other inside the room.
Chu Liuyue curtly explained all the happenings from her previous life and current life.
“I’m Country Yao Chen’s Chu Liuyue and also the Tianling Dynasty’s Shangguan Yue,” she said seriously as she looked at Rong Xiu. “Previously, I only said that my enemies were in Xi Ling City, but I didn’t tell you exactly what happened because… At that time, I wasn’t sure if I could successfully complete what I wanted to do.”
“But now, everything has been settled. I wanted to find a chance to talk to you about it, but I didn’t expect it to coincidentally happen today.” Chu Liuyue took a deep breath. “Rong Xiu, this is… the real me.”
She then quietened down and silently waited for Rong Xiu’s reaction. But to her surprise, the latter didn’t look shocked at all and looked doting instead.
He stretched out his hand and held her hand tightly, gently caressing the back of her hand. “Does it hurt?”
Chu Liuyue was dazed. “What?”
“No matter if it were you deciding to burn yourself to commit suicide that day or everything that you experienced later on… My Yue’er, you must’ve suffered a lot, right?” Rong Xiu looked at her, and his gaze was deep.
He had been waiting for her to tell him everything personally, but this was undoubtedly akin to ripping her own wounds open. To him, knowing all the pain and sufferings she had previously been through was also torture.
“Rong Xiu, y-you’re not angry that I lied to you?” Chu Liuyue dazedly stared at him, and tears welled up in her eyes. Even though I didn’t hide it from him on purpose, I still hid too many things. Does Rong Xiu… not mind at all?
Upon hearing this, Rong Xiu gently shook his head, smiled slightly, and sighed. “I don’t even have enough time to dote on you. Why would I have additional energy to get angry at you?”
Chu Liuyue didn’t expect him to have such a reaction.
The next moment, Rong Xiu leaned in and kissed the tear at the corner of her eye. “Promise me that no matter what happens in the future, don’t shoulder it all by yourself. I’m always here.”
The previous uneasy apologies disappeared at this point as they all became grievances to be let out.
It suddenly seemed like she had removed her heavy armor, and her entire body became relaxed. All the pain and sufferings she had once experienced weren’t worth a mention now.
The heavens gave her pain and obstacles, but they also gave her Rong Xiu.
Chu Liuyue closed her eyes and buried herself in his shoulders, her tone low as she replied. “Okay.”
After a while, knocks were heard.
Thirteen’s rather nervous voice sounded. “Your Highness? The rain has stopped for quite some time. Should we return to the palace now?”
Actually, he also didn’t want to rush her at this point. However, there were still people waiting for her in the palace!
Chu Liuyue’s emotions then gradually calmed down, and she removed herself from Rong Xiu’s embrace. I almost forgot that Thirteen was still waiting outside.
“There are some things that I want to tell you, but it seems like I can’t do it today.” Rong Xiu brushed her messy hair behind her ear and gently caressed her face.
Chu Liuyue looked at him, and a white light suddenly flashed across her mind. I vaguely feel that Rong Xiu wants to tell me about something important, and… It is most likely related to his ‘Your Grace’ identity! But Thirteen is already hurrying us, and it is indeed inconvenient for us to stay any longer.
Chu Liuyue could only nod. “Then, you can stay here first for the night. Tomorrow…”
She paused, looked up, and glanced at Rong Xiu. “Actually, Father had mentioned to me that… he wants to see you.”
Rong Xiu understood what she meant and gently kissed her forehead. “I’ll visit Father-in-Law tomorrow then.”
Chu Liuyue’s face turned red, and she suddenly became worried. “Will tomorrow be too fast?”
This kind of matter should be left with more time to prepare, right…?
Rong Xiu squinted his eyes, and smiling intent flashed across them. My wife doesn’t seem to be very confident in her man…
“Then… three days later.”
