That woman seemed to notice something as she turned around, and her breathtaking face entered his view.
Strangeness flashed across her eyes as her red lips curled up into a slight smile.
Jiang Yucheng abruptly stopped his actions. Even though the woman in front looks extremely like her, it isnt her! Those eyes look like hers, but theyre quite different.
That persons eyes always had a tinge of gentleness and cunningness, but the person in front has clear, black gem-like eyes with a tinge of coldness.
Its not her… Its not her!
Chu Liuyue looked down at his hand hovering in mid-air and raised her brows slightly.
Even though he was wearing a mask, she still directly recognized Jiang Yucheng through his face shape, steps, and voice. Those words… Did Jiang Yucheng take me as Shangguan Yue I really havent heard him call me this in such a long while.
Pfft, how disgusting.
“…Why is it you” Jiang Yucheng stiffly retracted his hand and curled his fingers.
Something seemed to be stuck in his throat as he dryly asked this with much difficulty.
Seeing Jiang Yuchengs shocked and disappointed gaze, Chu Liuyue blinked and smiled with even deeper meaning. Hearing that voice seems to be filled with longing and elation… Those who didnt know would really think that he was devoted to her.
And he still questioned me in such a manner What a joke.
Does Jiang Yucheng still wish to see Shangguan Yue again Isnt he the one who pushed her to her death What right does he have to talk to her like that!
An idea popped up in Chu Liuyues mind, but she didnt show it on her face as she smiled slightly and said, “Young Master, I think you recognized the wrong person.
I came here with my friend, and they went in to buy some things, so Im waiting for them here.”
In actual fact, they only reached Xi Ling an hour ago.
She originally wanted to go straight back to Chong Xu Cabinet, but Mu Hongyu said that they were in a sorry state and that if they went back like this, they would definitely make people very worried.
No matter what, they had to tidy themselves up first.
Actually, it wasnt only Mu Hongyu.
The others, including Chu Liuyue, also looked terrible.
They had stayed in the Red Moon Desert for such a long time after all.
With yellow sand filling the place and with the hot sun shining brightly, the few of them stank.
Chu Liuyue also didnt want to go back in such a sorry state, so they thought of a plan and went to a guest inn to tidy themselves up.
As there was still a small bruise on Chu Liuyues head, Ye Ranran decided to directly apply a layer of thin powder for her and tidy herself up.
Chu Liuyue rarely dolled herself up, but seeing that Ye Ranran insisted, she let her be.
In between, she recalled that Rong Xiu had given her a peach blossom hairpin, but she didnt wear it properly.
Hence, she took it out to use.
Originally, she wanted to tidy herself up properly to go back, but she didnt expect to meet Jiang Yucheng while Mu Hongyu and the rest were buying items.
How unlucky. Chu Liuyue quietly sighed in her heart, and her good mood suddenly became non-existent.
At this point, Jiang Yucheng gradually recovered his senses.
Chu Liuyue… Chu Liuyue! Didnt she already—
He suddenly widened his eyes and stared at Chu Liuyue in disbelief.
“Y-youre still alive”
Chu Liuyue squinted her eyes, slightly raised her chin, stared into Jiang Yuchengs eyes, and laughed lightly.
“Young Master, you must be joking.
Im standing here in one piece.
Of course, Im still alive.”
Jiang Yucheng was dazed for a moment. This expression and this gaze—it really is like that person talking.
His alcohol kicked in, and his brain expanded as he looked at the woman in front and muttered, “…Good that youre alive… Good… I-I really…”
Firstly, he acted as if a huge burden was relieved.
Then, he suddenly thought of something, and his expression changed greatly.
The thick alcohol smell came over.
Chu Liuyue silently took a step back, but her eyes were still tightly glued to him. Jiang Yuchengs reaction is indeed weird.
“Liuyue!” At this point, Mu Hongyus clear voice sounded from the side.
Chu Liuyue turned around and saw Mu Hongyu and Ye Ranran rushing over.
The two of them were originally elated; then, they saw the unfamiliar young man standing beside her. The way hes looking at Chu Liuyue is indeed weird.
Mu Hongyu knitted her brows and immediately went forward to pull Chu Liuyue over.
She silently stood in front and blocked Jiang Yuchengs vision.
“Liuyue, who is this” asked Mu Hongyu alertly. Hes filled with a drunken odor.
Did he come here to hit Liuyue up because shes pretty Hes clearly not a good person!
Chu Liuyue lightly laughed.
“I dont know him.
I think he recognized the wrong person.”
This finally woke Jiang Yucheng up.
He closed his eyes and recalled that he was using someone elses face, so it was natural for them to be this alert.
But its good that this is the case.
If not… He glanced at Chu Liuyue calmly before turning around to leave.
“Hey… Whats wrong with this person” Mu Hongyu knitted her brows even more tightly.
“Does he not know how to even apologize”
He doesnt seem like an ordinary person, but why was he not brought up well
Chu Liuyue held her wrist and shook her head slightly.
Whats the point of calculating it against such a person Wheres Little Zhou and the rest”
Ye Ranran softly said, “Big Brother Qin said that they wanted to tidy him up, so they should be out soon, right”
Chu Liuyue held her head. The few big men actually took a longer time than us.
I really admire them.
Thinking of Little Zhous ice-cold face, Chu Liuyue felt her head ache. I think only Qin Yi and the rest can control him…
Ye Ranran looked at her surroundings and sighed.
“Xi Ling hasnt been this crowded in two years.
When she spoke of this, her gaze darkened.
Mu Hongyu was about to ask why when she suddenly recalled something and fell silent. It should be related to that Princess…
“What a pity…” muttered Mu Hongyu.
Originally, she still admired that Princess very much.
But now that she finally arrived at Xi Ling with much difficulty, that person was no longer around.
Chu Liuyue smiled slightly and said with deep meaning, “Whats there to feel pity about We managed to rush here in time for the Third Princess and Eldest Young Master Jiangs wedding.
I believe itll be very crowded by then.”
