After being called, Mu Qinghe was dazed as he looked at the woman not far away.
She sat there relaxingly and lazily, and her dressing was very simple, but she exuded an elegance throughout her body.
She still had a young womans youthful smile on her face, and her eyes dazzled like stars, looking just as she did more than a year ago.
And she directly called out his name in such a relaxed and free tone as if all the vengeance that she had these few years… was completely non-existent.
Mu Qinghe clenched his fists gradually and looked down.
“We just have ordinary interactions.
Y-Your Majesty, you dont have to worry.”
After this one-line answer, Mu Qinghe shut his mouth as if he didnt want to continue explaining.
Jian Fengchi glanced at him hesitantly and knitted his brows slightly, hesitation flashing across his eyes. At this point, does he still not want to talk about anything…
Actually, everything that Chu Liuyue asked was also what he wanted to ask.
That day, the royal familys ancestral hall burned for a day and a night, and even he was alerted as he rushed to the palace.
In the end, Mu Qinghe arrived even later than him.
Even he could tell that the Princesss death was amiss, but Mu Qinghe never expressed any objections from start to end.
If it werent because of the things that happened later on… Jian Fengchi was almost certain that he had completely betrayed Shangguan Yue. If he said that he sided with Jiang Yucheng because he cared for the big picture, what else can he not say now that Jiang Yucheng and Shangguan Wan are already eliminated
Jian Fengchi really didnt understand it.
He always wanted to help explain a few things, but in actual fact, he couldnt explain much.
Only Mu Qinghe knew his reasons for doing many things.
Whatever outsiders said would just make the scenario more complicated.
“What do you think” Chu Liuyue didnt seem surprised by Mu Qinghes answer as she shrugged her shoulders and looked at Jian Fengchi.
Jian Fengchis brows twitched.
“Uh… We just fooled around last time.
If you think carefully, we didnt actually have a deep conflict…”
Chu Liuyue seemed to laugh, but her gaze seemed like she had seen through everything.
Jian Fengchis words seemed to be stuck in his throat, and he couldnt say anything.
He couldnt help but look at Mu Qinghe.
However, Mu Qinghe looked down as if he were thinking of something.
After some time, he then raised his head again and calmly said, “Your Majesty, you once sent out three signals for help that day, right”
Chu Liuyue gradually sat up straight and stared at him closely.
Mu Qinghe stood with one hand behind his back as he clenched it slowly.
His expression was as calm as normal.
“I was the one who halted the three signals.
Its me; I was the one who stopped your last chance of survival.”
It was already the middle of June, and it was quite hot and humid.
The streets were bustling.
Rong Xiu walked on the streets alone.
As he was wearing a hood and hid his surrounding aura, he didnt attract much attention.
Everyone here was still talking about her.
While Rong Xiu walked forward, he listened to the crowds discussions.
Every time he heard those people gasp in surprise and praise her, his thin lips would curl up slightly. She could always do everything she wanted.
It wasnt that he didnt think of coming over to help, but in the end, he felt that it was better if he let her have a run.
It was best if she could get back what she lost.
She could take her own revenge and completely wash away all the pain she had once suffered.
And he just had to give her the knife when she needed it.
Of course, the knife needed to be quick enough.
Just as he was thinking about this, he suddenly felt his surroundings darken.
He looked up and realized that the previously bright sky was suddenly covered by dark clouds as it darkened.
Very quickly, rain dropped down on his forehead; it was ice-cold.
He was originally heading toward Hundred Herbs Building, but he didnt expect the weather to suddenly change midway.
The rain quickly became heavier, and all the stall vendors quickly packed their stuff and left.
White water droplets gradually appeared on the marble floor.
Only a curtain made of rainwater was left between heaven and earth.
Rong Xiu knitted his brows slightly, and his gaze was dark.
Then, he turned his body and went in another direction.
The tall and muscular man rapidly disappeared in the water curtain.
After Chu Liuyue exited the Mu Residence alone, she walked aimlessly on the streets as Mu Qinghes words kept replaying in her mind. He admitted it; he said that he did all of those things.
What else did he say Oh yes, he said that he was originally Jiang Yuchengs man, so his betrayal wasnt really a betrayal.
It turns out… This is the truth!
Countless scenes flashed before her eyes.
Chu Liuyue took a deep breath in.
The winds started brewing, and the skies quickly darkened.
She looked up.
Humid and hot, yet cold at the same time.
She had already forgotten what expression she made or what reply she gave after she heard those words.
She didnt even remember how she walked out of the Mu Residence.
Suddenly, a furry sensation was felt.
Tuan Zi squatted on her shoulders and snuggled against her face.
Chu Liuyue shook her head.
“Tuan Zi, dont worry.
It should be because I left hope for myself and thought… However, there arent so many assumptions in the world. Chu Liuyue looked at the sky, and the rain fell.
In the blink of an eye, the rain quickly fell and connected into one long line between heaven and earth.
Chu Liuyue took a step out and was about to go back when she suddenly felt a sinisterly cold aura suddenly rushing toward her from the rain curtain far away.
Alarmed, she suddenly looked up!
A purplish-blue light shot through the sky, and it went straight toward her!
She moved her feet and was about to take action when she suddenly felt someone rapidly approaching her from behind and grabbing her waist.
At the same time, a silver blade flew out and harshly collided with the light!
There seemed to be a transparent barrier that appeared in the surroundings, blocking all of the ripples outside.
An extremely familiar cold fragrance came over, and Chu Liuyues heart started beating quickly.
She turned around and judged from the incoming persons breathtaking appearance and shocking aura that it was Rong Xiu!
“R-Rong Xiu… What are you doing here” Chu Liuyue widened her eyes slightly.
Rong Xiu held her even more tightly as he held the black umbrella with his other hand.
He said with a lazy voice, “Its raining.
Im here to hold the umbrella for you.”
