Hearing the voice, Zhao Xiaoxue couldn't help but turn her head and saw a young girl wearing a pink cheongsam leading a group of people here. The girl looked to be around 15 or 16 years old, and was quite cute and petite.
However, at this moment, her pair of beautiful big eyes were staring fiercely at him. Her two rows of silver teeth were grinding together, causing such a strong anger to appear out of nowhere. Zhao Xiaoxue also had a lingering fear.
The person didn't keep his eyes on Zhao Xiaoxue, she quickly changed her sight. When she saw the man in red robes lying on the ground, she quickly ran to his side. Looking at his weak breathing, she worriedly shouted:
"Big brother, can you still hold on?"
The concern on the girl's face didn't seem fake. When the two of them stood together, they looked really similar.
"So you two are siblings?"
Zhao Xiaoxue meant no harm. However, the moment she said those words, she received a gaze filled with loathing from the other side.
"Someone, arrest this female thief first!"
Zhao Xiaoxue wanted to explain, but the Pink Miss didn't give her the chance. Just as she finished speaking, two of her men stepped forward and grabbed Zhao Xiaoxue's arms without saying a word.
"Hey, why are you capturing me? Your brother and I finally came out of the Confusion Forest, and now that he's injured, I'm very worried too, but you can't just arrest me for no reason, right? "
Zhao Xiaoxue was truly wronged.
"Injured? You actually dare to say that you're together with my big brother? You don't even understand his situation! "
Zhao Xiaoxue was at a loss for words for how to explain the situation. What had happened to the Ox King? Wasn't he just injured? How could his sister be so unreasonable!
"Men, hurry and help my big brother onto the horse carriage. The situation is urgent, we need to return to Grand Dominance City as soon as possible!"
Other than two people trying to hold Zhao Xiaoxue hostage, the rest of the people had already started working. Not long after, the red robed man was sent to the carriage.
Right now, the red robed man was very sick, Zhao Xiaoxue didn't have the ability to save him, so she could only quietly watch and try her best not to give them any trouble, and also didn't want to waste their time.
After the group was ready, the pink lady was finally helped onto the horse carriage. At this time, she once again turned her gaze towards Zhao Xiaoxue. The way she looked at others seemed to be able to see through them, making Zhao Xiaoxue feel uncomfortable.
"The two of you, follow her!"
After a long time, the pink girl finally spoke.
The two underlings obeyed.
"Where are you going to take me?"
The two people beside her had quite a bit of strength, so Zhao Xiaoxue could only let them grab onto her. She did not have the strength to fight back, which was truly lamentable.
Hearing the woman's shout outside the carriage, the young lady who was carefully taking care of the red robed man said in a low voice with a frown:
"Brother, who is that girl? Can you wake up and tell Jiao Jiao? "If it wasn't for the fact that she was worried about you, I would have definitely ordered my men to directly kill her!"
The sound inside the carriage was too soft to be heard by Zhao Xiaoxue. After traversing the forest, there were many horses in front of them. So, they were all riding horses. What about her?
Zhao Xiaoxue really didn't know how to ride a horse. Furthermore, the horse was so tall, who knows if it would break if she fell off.
Just when Zhao Xiaoxue was worried and scared, her body was pulled onto the back of the horse. However, she was sitting on the horse's butt and didn't even have a proper posture when she heard the man on the horse in front of her shout:
"Dong Dong Dong!"
Accompanying the sound of the horse's hooves, Zhao Xiaoxue's body swayed up and down on her horse's buttocks. She, who had not been able to sit still in the first place, was now swaying from side to side.
"Be careful, this girl doesn't know how to ride a horse!"
Someone in the group finally noticed the change in Zhao Xiaoxue's expression, but it was too late. The horses were galloping, and Zhao Xiaoxue had lost all her support.
"Not good, that girl flew out!"
This was a small mountain path, next to a cliff. In a split-second, Zhao Xiaoxue's body flew out of the cliff.
Seeing this situation, someone wanted to fly over and save him. However, just as he was about to move, someone from the side stopped him.
"You're crazy, this is a cliff below, can you bring someone with you to fly up?"
Hearing his teammates' reminders, the subordinates who wanted to save him realized that their abilities were limited and shrank back. They could only allow the figure, which was falling lower and lower, to disappear from their line of sight.
Zhao Xiaoxue couldn't tell what was going on above, so she could hear the howling of the wind beside her ear. She felt that she was the most pitiful person in the world, not only did she not have any superpowers, but she also kept falling down the cliff. She didn't know if she would be lucky this time, if she could still see him.
"Chu Yufeng, where are you? "I really want to …"
These were the things that Zhao Xiaoxue could think of while she was falling. If she did not say it now, she was afraid that she would not have the chance to say it later.
However, just as she was speaking, Zhao Xiaoxue felt something tighten around her waist, as if someone was grabbing her. She quickly turned her head and saw a familiar purple robe that caused her to open her eyes wide in shock.
"Are you for real or fake?"
The woman's question was somewhat strange. The man tilted his face slightly, and after looking at it for a long time, he finally opened his mouth and asked,
"Are you scared silly?"
Hearing the man's question, Zhao Xiaoxue's spirit rapidly rose. She suddenly became inexplicably excited and said,
"To be able to speak like that, it must be true! Haha, I'm saved again! "
With a man by her side, Zhao Xiaoxue was not afraid of the precipice at all, because the feeling of a man being carried by a man was simply too refreshing.
"Fly! Fly! I want to fly higher! "
Zhao Xiaoxue suddenly wanted to sing a song, but before she could sing, her body fell to the ground.
"Eh? Not flying? "
In just a short while, Zhao Xiaoxue felt that she had not had enough fun.
"If you want to fly, you can jump down again. This King has just checked and found that there is a deep pool at the bottom of the cliff. If you fall down, you won't die. "Hiss!"
Before the man finished, his foot was heavily stepped on. In order to maintain his demeanor, the man endured it and didn't move, but his expression became more and more unsightly. Looking at this woman's thin body, he didn't expect that the strength used to step on her was not small.
"Humph!" If you want to jump, jump! I'm leaving! "
After taking a few steps, Zhao Xiaoxue turned her head and continued:
"Don't follow me. When we were in Sand River Town, we already went our separate ways. Now, we will walk our separate paths!"
After saying that, Zhao Xiaoxue turned around and continued on her way. In front of her was a vast expanse of grass. She didn't know where she was going nor where she was going.
She was like a headless fly in this foreign world, scurrying around with no clear goal in mind. However, her mind had no goal, but her heart was attached to someone. The further she was away from him, the slower her footsteps became.
Looking at the woman's back as she left, the man felt at a loss. Ever since he entered the Confusion Forest, he had followed behind the woman. He knew the person who kidnapped her, and the other party wasn't some evil villain.
Therefore, he gave her a small punishment, and also gave her the ingredients to refine a level four Blood Essence Pill. In the end, he had them take the initiative to leave the Confusion Forest.
If not for that, he would not have saved her when he saw her fall off the cliff.
Of course, he was very happy when he heard that the woman was still calling out his name. But now, he didn't have the courage to ask her to stay because he didn't have much time left.
His previous thought was very simple. He only wanted to have a woman accompany him by his side. At the very least, he would be able to leave behind some beautiful things at the end of his life.
He wanted to accompany this woman more, understand her more, and protect her forever. Thus, he actually didn't want to leave, leave this world, leave her side.
The conflicting emotions made the man feel especially uncomfortable. There were some things that could not be changed just because he didn't want to. Since he was destined to lose them, releasing them now might not be a bad thing.
"What kind of expression is that? Why didn't you chase after them? "
Zhao Xiaoxue also felt that she had no backbone. She had finally experienced what it meant to not say anything.
"You're the one who stopped me from following you!"
The man replied seriously.
"Alright, let's be direct. The reason why I came back is because I have a question that I want to ask you!"
Seeing that the woman was so serious, the man also became more serious.
"What do you want to ask?"
"Do you like me or not?"
This question had been hanging in Zhao Xiaoxue's mind for a long time. Previously, she didn't think much of it, but after this berserk beast attack, Zhao Xiaoxue realized that she was thinking about this man at all times.
This was the first time in her life that she had been so concerned about someone. Although the two of them had separated before, their longing at that time wasn't as intense as this. Zhao Xiaoxue wasn't an ignorant girl.
"What do you think?"
Hearing the question, the man smirked. This was the first time he felt that this woman was very bold. Could it be that her previous timidness was just an act?
"I just don't know, that's why I wanted to know!"
At this critical moment, Zhao Xiaoxue felt that this guy's old illness had struck again. Zhao Xiaoxue was really afraid that he would say, "Why should I tell you this?"
"Do you like me?"
Unexpectedly, the man didn't say anything heartbreaking. Instead, he asked a question.
"I like you, I like you!"
This was the answer in Zhao Xiaoxue's heart. She blurted it out without thinking.
"Alright, I understand!"
Hearing the answer, Chu Yufeng turned around and walked forward with steady steps.
"What's going on? You just left like that? "
Zhao Xiaoxue felt as if she was fooled by this man. Feeling somewhat depressed, she quickly chased after him and grabbed his arm, wanting to ask more clearly:
"You haven't answered my question?"
After saying that, Zhao Xiaoxue looked at him expectantly.
Seeing that the woman took the initiative to extend her wrist, the man was in a good mood. He gently smiled and said:
"Alright, I'll let you serve me when I get the chance!"
This word instantly provoked Zhao Xiaoxue's brain. It even pierced through her heart like a sharp sword. She let go of the man's arm and a cold smile appeared on Zhao Xiaoxue's face:
"I won't be your servant girl. If you like me, then you can only have me for your entire life!"
After Zhao Xiaoxue finished speaking, she felt that her words were too unrealistic. A woman who could marry the Southern King was definitely not a weak character.
"Forget it, you have an imperial concubine. It's better if you forget what I just said!"
Zhao Xiaoxue's mood fluctuated. She had never experienced such a contradictory feeling before, but now that she had experienced it, the feeling was somewhat bitter.
"Mm, you're right. This king already has an imperial concubine. The imperial concubine is too tyrannical. I'm afraid that apart from her, I won't dare to provoke anyone else in my life!"
After saying this, the man began to walk forward.
"So you did it on purpose? You... You scoundrel, if you don't like me, then just say so. Why do you have to beat around the bush and insult me? I still have a prince! "Humph!"
Zhao Xiaoxue was truly infuriated, she said what she shouldn't have said.
"The prince you speak of should be this king!"
Chu Yufeng stared at the little b * stard in front of him. He couldn't help but want to tell her the truth.
"Who said it was you? My prince is several times better than you. At the very least, he wouldn't lie to me. Moreover, his personality is pure and kind. He wouldn't be as black-hearted as you!"
Although he didn't know what his in-name husband looked like, he must have a kind heart. Otherwise, he wouldn't have helped her on the day of their marriage.
When she thought about it carefully, she really felt sorry for him after escaping like this. What was even worse was that she had entrusted her heart to someone else, and she actually fell for a married man. Indeed, this should be the punishment of the heavens!
"Is your prince very pure and kind? May I ask who your Prince is? "
Chu Yufeng asked with feigned seriousness.
"My Prince …" "He …"
Zhao Xiaoxue was suddenly at a loss for words. She didn't know who the prince she married was, but everyone in the Southern Chu Country knew that he was a sickly young lord. It was likely that the Southern King knew as well.
"Why should I tell you?"
Zhao Xiaoxue began to imitate a man's way of speaking. Not to mention, this sentence was rather smooth, at least for now she was not that embarrassed.
"Not telling?" "Don't tell me I don't know that there are only six princes in the Southern Chu Country, so …"
"That's why you have to call me sister-in-law!"
Zhao Xiaoxue had given him a chance to save face.
"Sister-in-law?" "This King's sister-in-law should be …"
Chu Yufeng didn't finish his sentence. He looked at the woman who left in a hurry, and couldn't help but smile. So, it turned out that it was actually this interesting to have a chat with this woman.
Esteemed Empress Dowager, who was far away in the imperial capital of Anduo, suddenly sneezed for some reason, startling the empress dowager who was sitting on the phoenix chair.
"Since the empress isn't feeling well, we'll summon the Southern Wangfei into the palace another day. She's just a silly girl anyway, there's nothing to see!"
"But the Southern King and the Southern Wangfei have been married for many days and will always pay respects to the empress dowager in the future. This really is a bit …"
The empress wanted to speak again, but when she saw the empress dowager's penetrating eyes, she dared not speak further.
"The empress dowager is wise. Your son isn't feeling well, so I'll be taking my leave first!"
The empress was very tactful and knew that the empress dowager was unhappy today, so she took her leave first.
When the empress had left, the empress dowager suddenly spoke to a guard beside her with a cold expression.
"Send someone out to find her and bring that silly girl back here. Let's see if I can skin her or not, how dare I treat Feng Er like this!"
