C112 Ah Li Asked
Lan Xuehan turned her head and saw Dongfang Lyi standing outside the bamboo forest. When she saw Dongfang Lyi treating this place like his own home, she knew that Dongfang Lyi and Dongfang Jin must have a very good relationship.
Because, no one had reported Dongfang Lyi's arrival in Bamboo Garden. The servants also looked very normal.
Alas, it was a pity that she had lost all of her martial arts, so she did not sense Dongfang Lyi's appearance. If an enemy appeared, she definitely would not know either. At this moment, Lan Xuehan genuinely felt that she should stay in Bamboo Garden obediently before her martial arts recovered! Otherwise, she would go out and jump around. She would be a target for others.
Dongfang Jin obviously knew that Dongfang Lyi had come a long time ago. He said to Lan Xuehan softly, "Ah Li is here. He and I still have some things to deal with. Go back to your room and rest."
Lan Xuehan waved her hand. "Don't worry about me. The weather today is not bad. You guys go ahead with your work. I will wait for a while."
"Alright. Don't stay for too long. Your body is still very weak." Dongfang Jin said these words and left gracefully.
However, it caused another wave to arise in Dongfang Lyi's heart. When did Third Brother become so long-winded?
After a long while, Dongfang Lyi walked out of the study with a bad expression. He had changed from his usual careless and charming look. At this moment, his pace was slow and he seemed to be flustered and exasperated.
He walked past the courtyard and saw a blue figure leisurely reading a book in a gazebo by the pool. Compared to his current mood, Dongfang Lyi felt even more depressed.
Walking into the gazebo, Dongfang Lyi said in a bad tone, "I have something to ask you."
Lan Xuehan raised her eyebrows and her eyes did not even move away from the book. She simply said, "I am not free."
Dongfang Lyi choked on his words and almost vomited blood. Did she think he was blind? She was so idle now that she panicked. She could still say that she was not free without batting an eyelid!
However, if she could be dismissed with a single sentence, Dongfang Lyi would not be Dongfang Lyi.
He hurriedly stepped forward and stood in front of Lan Xuehan. He took the book from her hand and said with an unhappy expression, "What I asked you is related to Third Brother, I want to know..."
Before he finished speaking, he was interrupted by Lan Xuehan, "Don't say anything for now. I just want to know. Could this be the upbringing of your royal family? Is he arrogant, high and mighty? I really don't know where your sense of superiority comes from? Could it be just because you're a member of the royal family, you want others to answer? Does it mean that others have to answer?"
The continuous rhetorical questions left Dongfang Lyi speechless. So she said she was not free. Was she referring to his tone of voice that was not right? This woman was really arrogant. Ever since he, Dongfang Lyi, was born... He had never been talked about like this before, not to mention this woman was civilian woman!
He had been so arrogant for a long time that he could not say anything to apologize, but his tone was still a little weak. After all, this was the person Third Brother placed at the top of his heart. He did not want Third Brother to use his evil heart on him.
"Well, I have something to ask you." Dongfang Lyi said this unnaturally.
Lan Xuehan did not answer, but glanced at his hand. When Dongfang Lyi saw this, he suppressed his anger of turning around to leave and gave the book in his hand to this woman!
Insatiable and arrogant. This was Dongfang Lyi's understanding of Lan Xuehan.
Seeing Dongfang Lyi being so understanding, Lan Xuehan also knew to stop when she saw a good thing. After all, this was someone close to Dongfang Jin. If she went too far, it would be difficult for Dongfang Jin to do it.
"What is it?"
Seeing Lan Xuehan's expression finally becoming serious, Dongfang Lyi also cast aside the unhappiness from before. He asked seriously, "I want to know why you are willing to enter the Floating Dream with Third Brother? Do you know that it is a place where you will most likely die?"
Lan Xuehan raised her eyebrows and her eyes were as bright as the stars. Her tone was indifferent but unquestionable, "Why don't you go with him? Love was originally a matter between two people. There was no reason for him to take risks and fight alone. I will do nothing behind his back, this kind of thing... I, Lan Xuehan, cannot do such a thing!
So what if it's Floating Dream? Even if it's River of Forgetfulness, I dare to accompany him. "
Dongfang Lyi looked at the confidence and pride between the brows of the peerless woman in front of him, and his expression became absent-minded. He seemed to have somewhat understood why Third Brother fell in love with this girl.
Pride, confidence, firmness, and an aura that was not inferior to a man's!
Ever since that day, Dongfang Lyi had changed his attitude towards Lan Xuehan. However, with just a few words from her, it was still difficult for him to accept Lan Xuehan. After all, in the royal family, acting was common.
He felt that time would help him prove exactly what kind of person Lan Xuehan was!
Dongfang Jin and Lan Xuehan were even more relaxed and carefree. Emperor Wenjing probably guessed that Dongfang Jin must have been seriously injured since he came out of Floating Dream, so he didn't tell Dongfang Jin anything else and let him recuperate in the prefecture.
These days, the two of them were either playing chess or playing music in the mansion, or enjoying tea and poetry. The sound of the accompaniment drifted out of the prefecture, causing everyone to gather outside the prefecture, waiting to hear the wonderful sound of the world.
At the same time, everyone was spreading rumors that Young Master Wushuang had finally found a peerless beauty. The kindness and love of the two of them, the accompaniment of the zither and flute, was truly a match made in heaven!
Lan Xuehan was also puzzled. Although Dongfang Jin was injured, it did not mean that the First Prince and the others did not make a move! Did he really have nothing to do with accompanying her at home?
When Dongfang Jin heard this, he smiled mysteriously. "I am waiting for him to make a move!"
"Although Royal Father adores the strong as the king, they are still his sons after all. He could not help feeling pity for ___. If I attack first, Royal Father will definitely know. At that time, he will inevitably have some negative comments about me. But if he attacks first, I will be forced to fight back. At that time... Even if his head is separated from his body, Royal Father will only think that he is useless!"
After Lan Xuehan heard his opinion, she secretly cursed in her heart. Fortunately, she had met a monstrous genius like Dongfang Jin. Otherwise, ten lives would not be enough for him to play with!
He was too ruthless. After solving the obstacles, he still had a good reputation. No wonder everyone in the world said that he was smart enough to defeat gods. Wisdom was close to a demon!
However, before Lan Xuehan had time to think about the next step, she received an invitation from the Imperial Palace. The Imperial Concubine held a Peony Meeting and invited everyone to go and watch.
Because she was under the name of Prince Xu's fiancée, so she was very honored to be invited.
However, according to the relationship in the Imperial Palace that Dongfang Jin told her, she thought with her toes and knew that it was obvious. It was the Hongmen Banquet!
Dongfang Jin looked at the invitation on the table, his eyes were filled with darkness. She actually dared to set her eyes on Lan Xuehan. All these years, everything she had done to him... He had yet to settle the score with her. He did not expect that torturing him was not enough. Now, she even wanted to destroy his happiness.
He was simply courting death!
Lan Xuehan looked at the gentle and elegant Dongfang Jin, who was emitting a strong evil aura. She suddenly remembered the pain, ferociousness, uneasiness, and fear on Dongfang Jin's jade face in the peach blossom forest.
However, she did not open her mouth to ask. Everyone had some unknown past on them. She did not need to bring forward his dark past and remind him of his painful memories.
