The simple sentence was a thunderbolt that sent Zhao Zicheng reeling with shock.

His mind became completely blank for a moment.

“W-what did you just say”

H-hes… her fiancé! But didnt she return When did—

Zhao Zicheng turned his head back, only to see the woman—who had been so cold and distant toward him just now—smiling unconsciously at the sight of the newcomer.

Her eyes were even sparkling with joy.

His heart immediately turned cold.

“Rong Xiu.” Chu Liuyue—who hadnt expected his early arrival—walked over to him.

“Why are you here so early”

Rong Xiu raised his brows slightly and lifted the corners of her lips.

“I naturally have to come early since Im paying my respects to my father-in-law.

Besides, I wouldve missed a good show had I come any later.”

Chu Liuyue shot him a glare in return. Trust him to make fun of me when Ive clearly rejected Zhao Zicheng.

Rong Xius smile deepened, and his heart tingled slightly when he saw her annoyed expression.

He wanted to wrap her in his embrace, but considering the fact that they were currently at the Tianling Imperial Palace and that many palace staff were watching them, he endured it and held her hand instead.

At the sight of the twos tightly clasped hands, Zhao Zicheng finally snapped back to his senses, and a frown unconsciously formed on his forehead.

Anyone could tell that the two were on intimate terms. Fiancé… How come I never heard about it before I even specifically asked my father to test His Majesty a few days ago, but the latter didnt mention a single word about this.

Did she get to know this man during the past two years If I remember correctly, she came back from an empire called Yao Chen, which is outside Heavens Canopy.

Then, this man…

“You dont seem to be from Xi Ling.” Zhao Zicheng took a deep breath in a desperate bid to make himself appear calm. Theres no aristocratic household with the surnameRong throughout the entire Tianling Dynasty, much less in Xi Ling.

Chances are that hes from Yao Chen.

Not wanting to explain things to Zhao Zicheng, Chu Liuyue thus said, “My father is probably waiting for us inside, so Ill leave with Rong Xiu now.

You should go back, Second Young Master Zhao.”

Zhao Zicheng, however, looked at Rong Xiu insistently.

“Since youre Her Majestys fiancé, then there should be nothing you cant say about your family background, right”

This was a clear confrontation.

Rong Xiu gave Chu Liuyue a reassuring look before flashing a bland smile at Zhao Zicheng.

“Im Rong Xiu, the Seventh Prince of Country Yao Chen.”

I knew it—hes from Country Yao Chen! Zhao Zichengs frown deepened. Although hes a prince, his status is nothing worth mentioning in Xi Ling since Country Yao Chen is a lesser empire.

Hes not even worthy of marrying the young miss of an average aristocratic family, much less Her Majesty.

Their difference in status is so huge that even the courtiers wont agree to this marriage!

He couldnt resist glancing at Chu Liuyue and clenching his fists while feeling conflicted and aggrieved. She surely understands this, and yet shes still so insistent about the marriage.

This just means that shes truly in love with him.

Jiang Yucheng was one step ahead of me back then, and now, she has this man named Rong Xiu by her side.

It seems that Im always one step too late.

“Im Zhao Zicheng, the Assistant Minister of Appointments.” Although Zhao Zicheng wasnt in Xi Ling the last few years, he hadnt resigned from his post.

He had just gotten promoted to become the Assistant Minister this year, but truthfully speaking, this title was nothing compared to his family background.

There were several Assistant Ministers after all, yet there was only one Second Young Master Zhao.

Zhao Zicheng had no intention of using his family background to pressure Rong Xiu.

He just wanted to exert pressure on the other with his court title.

While ordinary people would inevitably reveal looks of surprise and admiration when they heard Zhao Zichengs position, Rong Xiu only nodded in a calm and indifferent manner.

“Ive heard about you.”

Chu Liuyue and Zhao Zicheng looked at him in surprise.

The former wondered, Rong Xiu has only been to Xi Ling that one time, but Zhao Zicheng wasnt in the city back then.

So how did he hear about Zhao Zichengs name

Zhao Zicheng found it perplexing that Rong Xiu didnt seem to be surprised or in awe of him when the latter seemed to have heard a thing or two about him. Is he clueless about the way things work in Xi Ling If thats the case, then his reactions make sense.

He took a deep breath.

“Id like to have a brief chat with you alone, Young Master Rong.

I wonder if its convenient for you”

Rong Xiu raised his eyebrows and nodded.

“Yes, of course.”

“Just talk here.” Noticing that the atmosphere was beginning to become strange, Chu Liuyue grabbed Rong Xius arm to stop him from leaving. Since theyre most likely going to talk about me, why cant I listen

Zhao Zicheng gave her a hesitant look.

“Your Majesty—”

“What is it that I cant hear about when Rong Xiu and I have been engaged to one another If you have something to say, please cut to the chase, Young Master Zhao.”

Rong Xiu blinked in amusement. Oh, its rare to see her standing up for me… This doesnt feel bad.

I dont think she has ever stood up for Jiang Yucheng back then… Seeing how protective she is of Rong Xiu, she must be serious about him. There was a moment when Zhao Zichengs eyes narrowed slightly, but a ball of fire suddenly ignited within him when he saw how Rong Xiu seemed to be enjoying Chu Liuyues protection behind her back without the slightest ounce of guilt.

If hes already behaving like this now, what more in the future! Her Majesty deserves better! Zhao Zichengs expression became serious.

“In that case, I wont beat around the bush anymore.

Young Master Rong, if you truly love Her Majesty, then please leave her right away and dont get involved with her ever again.”

The temperature around them instantly dropped to freezing point, and the air around them seemed to be freezing bit by bit.

Chu Liuyue distinctly detected the biting aura coming from Rong Xiu.

In fact, there was this one moment when Zhao Zicheng felt a murderous aura in the air.

His heart thumped, and all the hair on his body stood on their ends.

However, that feeling disappeared as quickly as it came as if it was all just his imagination.

A ghost of a smile touched Rong Xius lips, and his voice was glacial.

“Oh What if I sayno”

Zhao Zicheng wasnt discouraged by Rong Xius answer, for he had already expected this.

Instead, he continued saying, “You two mightve been a good couple in the past, but as you can see now, shes currently the Tianling Dynastys Empress.

Her future partner needs to be someone whos well-matched with her, but youre not.

If you truly like and cherish her, you should leave and forget all about the engagement for her sake.

Surely you have some sense of shame”
