“Song Nan Mo……” Luo Qing Chen had never seen him like this before.
Those deep eyes were bloodshot, which made people feel pain just looking at them.
He closed his eyes and slowly raised his right hand to take her wrist, pulling it in his direction.
This her first time feeling his broad chest since coming here.
What hit her nose was the faint scent of sandalwood which smelled very, very good.
But his arms holding her were shaking a bit, as if he couldn’t keep the person in his heart no matter how much power he used.
“I won’t let you go.” He said in a low and hoarse voice by her ear, “Unless I die, I won’t let you go……”
He didn’t know how he could keep her by his side, but he knew that there was no way that he could watch her leave the palace.
To go to that far place and marry another person.
“Fool.” Luo Qing Chen softly rubbed his chest, “I’m stronger than you think. Let’s make an agreement, alright?”
Song Nan Mo trembled. Looking into her clear eyes, he felt very uncomfortable.
This feeling of discomfort wasn’t ordinary discomfort, it was the feeling of someone who you loved being in front of you, but having no choice but to watch them be sent away.
“I won’t die, so you can’t die either.” Luo Qing Chen looked up at him, “There are many bad people still alive, so how can we die?”
There was some love that didn’t mean staying together forever, but just being connected.
If you understand me, I’ll understand you.”
“Sorry……Sorry……Sorry……” Song Nan Mo apologized three times, but he didn’t say what he was apologizing for.
Sorry for not being able to keep you by his side and spending the rest of his life with you.
Sorry for not giving you happiness and having to watch you marry another person.
Sorry for having an identity where even death couldn’t give you happiness.
Luo Qing Chen shook her head with a smile, “It’s fine.”
She most likely knew the things that he didn’t say when he apologized.
Because it was Song Nan Mo, it didn’t matter. Even if she lived in a different country for the rest of her life, she will still look up at the same starry sky.
The day that Luo Qing Chen was married off as the eldest princess, Song Nan Mo didn’t appear.
Actually, no matter what agreement they had, he couldn’t allow her to leave like this.
He took the Straight Broad Sword that the previous emperor gave his family, planning to kill all who stood in his way.
But before he left the manor, he was surrounded by the people sent by the emperor.
He couldn’t do anything for her in the end. Instead, he had her protect him…..and his family.
No one knew what happened in the Song Manor that day. They only knew that Song Nan Mo came out covered in injuries. Feng Yu ordered him to be under house arrest for three months and would be reinstated when his injuries healed.
Song Nan Mo became a different person in these three months. He was still gentle and disciplined, but the books that he read went from philosophy to military tactics.
Some people said that his body was weak and some people said he went crazy.
But only he knew that he was more sane than anyone. There wasn’t a moment in his life where he was more clear on what to do.
Three months later, a small country was in turmoil. He took the initiative to quell this and requested to lead the troops.
Feng Yu looked at him for a long time and still couldn’t figure out the reason.
This thoughtful young man had become incomprehensible to him.
“Why do you want to lead the troops?” In the Supreme Hall, Feng Yu narrowed his eyes in a dangerous manner, “Do you want to go to the battlefield?”
