Ya Nu seemed very determined, holding the umbrella for her after opening the door.
There were drops of rain in the sky. Luo Qing Chen saw that he wasn’t planning on turning around, so she quickly took his wrist, “Tell me……why are you as stubborn as big brother Jiu Sheng!”
It was as if he was afraid that she would get lost if he didn’t go with her on this short walk.
Ya Nu’s hand trembled. He stopped for a few seconds, but then he slowly moved forward.
They didn’t say anything along the way.
Until they arrived at the King’s Landing Palace. She saw Du Jiu Sheng standing not far away with an umbrella in hand.
“Big brother Jiu Sheng……” Luo Qing Chen called out and Du Jiu Sheng slowly turned around.
His eyes didn’t fall onto her right away, but rather it fell onto Ya Nu beside her.
When the two eyes met, there was an unspeakable sadness.
Ya Nu put the umbrella in her hand and turned to leave.
“Ai.” She quickly called out to him and gave him the umbrella, “I’ll just go back with big brother Jiu Sheng.”
He silently nodded and took the umbrella from her hand.
Without knowing why, there was a depressed feeling in her heart.
She couldn’t describe it or understand it……
“Let’s go back!” Du Jiu Sheng appeared beside her at an unknown time as his eyes watched Ya Nu leave.
Luo Qing Chen couldn’t help trembling slightly……
“Un!” Luo Qing Chen nodded and only looked back after a long time.
She looked up at Du Jiu Sheng beside her, “I feel like Ya Nu has become a different person……”
“He was heavily injured and the doctor said that over half his body was burnt, especially his face……” When he said this, his voice quivered a bit, “It was basically destroyed.”
“He’s lived such a hard first half of his life and now that he was able to live a stable life, something like this happened……” Luo Qing Chen gave a deep sigh, “If we knew earlier, we wouldn’t have held the conferring ceremony. I don’t know if it’s because Du Qi Chao’s grudges are too heavy that he’s getting revenge on us……”
But thinking about it, there were more people that died at Du Qi Chao’s hands. Did they not have grudges?
She was just lying to herself. There were too many unknown things in this world and they had experienced quite a bit.
She hoped that this was the final test and there wouldn’t be any more disasters……
It was a pity that everything didn’t go as she wished.
She thought that Yao Yao’s death was the end of the border war, but she was too naive.
Who was Xiao Shen? His goal was far more than just the Dragon Gate Pass and these two small countries.
He wanted the Goose Gate Pass of the Heavenly Dynasty……
Half a month later, there was an urgent report from the border where Xu Yue was stationed.
Half of the soldiers had contracted a strange disease. This disease normally wasn’t anything, but it was easy to get restless at night and they did things that they couldn’t imagine.
Their killing intent became stronger and stronger.
Du Jiu Sheng immediately called Xu Yue back to the court and summoned the injured Ya Nu who was resting in the Willful Palace.
Luo Qing Chen had been alone in the King’s Landing Palace for half a month. After the conferring ceremony, Du Jiu Sheng rarely came to the King’s Landing Palace. He spent half his time in the royal study and the other half in Ya Nu’s Willful Palace.
Luo Qing Chen could understand when she thought about it. Ya Nu’s heavy injuries were to save them.
Some people in the palace spread rumours that the emperor no longer favoured the empress, but in reality, Du Jiu Sheng gave her even more than before.
He brought her new cloths every few days which were tributes from smaller countries.
