<p>In the Begonia Garden, Xuanyuan Haoyu stood with his hands behind his back.</p>

<p>His soft black hair covered his shoulders and filled Feng Zhiyao’s eyes. Her face flushed red, she quickly lowered her head. She remembered that she was now the legitimate daughter of Prime Minister Feng. She should be dignified, virtuous, and well-mannered.</p>

<p>“Your Highness.”</p>

<p>Feng Zhiyao quickly showed her respect.</p>

<p>“Stand up!”</p>

<p>“I heard from Prime Minister Feng that you have a way to deal with the plague of locust in Su Yang?”</p>

<p>“You, tell me about it!”</p>

<p>After Xuanyuan Haoyu saw Feng Zhiyao, he was slightly startled. His eyes were filled with astonishment. He was a little embarrassed, moved his sight away and looking at the begonia blossoms at the side.</p>


<p>Feng Zhiyao’s reply was neither humble nor arrogant.</p>

<p>Following that, she repeated the words she said to Father Feng to Xuanyuan Haoyu.</p>

<p>Xuanyuan Haoyu initially felt puzzled, but later on, he became open-minded and cheerful, his handsome face revealing a trace of astonishment.</p>

<p>“Are you really the woman that my seventh brother doesn’t want, Feng Zhiyao?”</p>

<p>Although this voice was pleasant to hear, it was somewhat ear-piercing to Feng Zhiyao.</p>

<p>“Your Highness King of Jing, what I’ve told you doesn’t seem to have anything to do with my annulment, right?”</p>

<p>Feng Zhiyao slowly sat on the stone bench beside her. The sweet smile on her face was as comfortable as the spring breeze. However, the smile hadn’t reached her eyes. Why did these people always tease her about her marriage annulment?</p>

<p>Did he really think she was that easy to bully?</p>

<p>“Zi Yun, serve the tea!”</p>

<p>Feng Zhiyao ordered Zi Yun to bring the tea over.</p>

<p>“Yes, Miss.”</p>

<p>Zi Yun originally thought that Eldest Miss would take the initiative to serve tea to His Highness, the King of Jing, but now it seemed that His Highness didn’t have much face.</p>

<p>Xuanyuan Haoyu elegantly sat down, very surprised by Feng Zhiyao’s calmness and her intelligence. If Seventh Brother knew that he mistook the pearl for a rock, wouldn’t he vomit blood in anger?</p>

<p>He was looking forward to it!</p>

<p>The scenery around the Heluan Pavillion was very beautiful, but Xuanyuan Haoyu seemed as if he didn’t see any of the scenery around him. His line of sight was always set on the woman in front of him.</p>

<p>Under the light blue dress, there was a graceful figure that would attract a man’s attention. She had a faint smile on the face, making it impossible for others to see her thoughts clearly.</p>

<p>“Aren’t you tired from looking at me?”</p>

<p>Feng Zhiyao lightly took a sip of tea, raising her eyebrows and asked.</p>

<p>“I’m just curious, why can’t seventh brother see the good of you?”</p>

<p>He seemed to be regretting it.</p>

<p>“Because he’s blind!”</p>

<p>She was not afraid that King of Qi would be angry if he knew what she said about him, because she felt that what she said was very true. Probably only that blind fool King of Qi didn’t know about it.</p>

<p>“You are the first person who dared to say that seventh brother is blind!”</p>

<p>“Hahaha …”</p>

<p>Xuanyuan Haoyu didn’t immediately retract his sight from her. He let out a low laugh, his voice deep and pleasant to the ears. Perhaps this woman wasn’t as devoted as the rumors about her crying after her marriage annulment.</p>

<p>Why was it getting so far?</p>

<p>They should talk about the locust plague!</p>

<p>“Your Highness King of Jing, I don’t know if you think that’s possible?”</p>

<p>If he didn’t agree, she would at most work a little harder and follow Father Feng to Su Yang.</p>

<p>“I heard that your chess skills are superb. How about you play a game with me?”</p>

<p>He was smiling, but he did not say yes, and did not answer.</p>


<p>Feng Zhiyao directly answered without thinking!</p>




<p>“I will teach you!”</p>

<p>Xuanyuan Haoyu only stared blankly for a moment before replying with a smile.</p>

<p>Wait, she didn’t know how to play chess, but the original Feng Zhiyao could!</p>

<p>“You really will teach me?”</p>

<p>Feng Zhiyao asked with a smile.</p>

<p>Zi Yun, who was standing at the side, wanted to say, “Eldest Miss, you’re obviously proficient in chess, so why did you say you couldn’t?”</p>

<p>However, Zi Yun had always been well-behaved, so she only quietly looked at her eldest miss without revealing anything. However, the suspicion in her heart grew bigger and bigger, and she became smarter and more approachable, as if she was a completely different person. How strange!</p>

<p>Xuanyuan Haoyu nodded his head lightly. His dark phoenix eyes met her pair of eyes that were as clear as water. They were like a whirlpool that swept through everything. It was so beautiful that it shook his soul, causing his heart to beat wildly.</p>

<p>Could he not look at her like that!</p>

<p>She almost couldn’t control herself. She wanted to transform into a fox and throw him to the ground to ‘fight’ for three hundred rounds!</p>

<p>" Zi Yun, bring the chess!"</p>

<p>Feng Zhiyao instantly pulled her mind back, turning her head to instruct Zi Yun.</p>

<p>After Zi Yun received the order, she quickly took out the chess.</p>

<p>Xuanyuan Haoyu stretched out his slender white fingers and grabbed a black chess piece. At this moment, the dexterous movements of the chess piece and the soul of the owner of the hand instantly merged, shocking people.</p>

<p>“Why do you look so infatuated?”</p>

<p>Xuanyuan Haoyu saw that Feng Zhiyao was not holding a chess piece but was instead staring at him with a pair of clear eyes, making him feel completely uncomfortable.</p>

<p>“No …”</p>

<p>“No …”</p>

<p>Feng Zhiyao smiled embarrassedly. It seemed that this chess game could not go any further, because she had no intention of play at the moment.</p>

<p>“Then why didn’t you make a move?”</p>

<p>Xuanyuan Haoyu gently placed a white chess piece on her palm. Feng Zhiyao’s heartbeat quickened as she felt the cool touch.</p>

<p>This bastard, teaching her how to play chess? This was simply testing whether she was the real Feng Zhiyao or not.</p>

<p>Alright, then I would do it. If I didn’t defeat you, I’ll write my name in reverse!</p>

<p>Xuanyuan Haoyu looked attentively at the chess game on the stone table with an expression of unprecedented caution. He gently put down a black chess piece that he held between his slender fingers.</p>

<p>Compared to Xuanyuan Haoyu’s solemn expression, Feng Zhiyao’s face was very comfortable. She occasionally ate crystal grapes carefully peeled by Zi Yun, and occasionally her eyes would glance at the Iris in the lake, only occasionally focusing on the chess game.</p>

<p>“Eldest Miss, the crystal grapes have been peeled. How about I go to the backyard and pick some fresh nectars? Is that alright?”</p>

<p>Zi Yun knew that she loved eating sweet fruits, so immediately suggested with a smile.</p>

<p>“En, then hurry up and come back.”</p>

<p>Feng Zhiyao smiled leisurely.</p>

<p>Zi Yun immediately carried her skirt and ran to the backyard.</p>

<p>Feng Zhiyao looked at Xuanyuan Haoyu as he put down his chess piece. She thought to herself in amusement, “Hehe, you want to test me? Today, I’ll make you lose everything!”</p>

<p>Being as smart as Feng Zhiyao, she discovered that everything could be understood. She had been at a disadvantage from the start, now immediately fought back, killing all of Xuanyuan Haoyu’s chess pieces without leaving a single one.</p>

<p>“You’ve lost!”</p>

<p>Feng Zhiyao raised her head, her eyes curved into crescent moons, looking straight into his eyes.</p>

<p>Hearing this, Xuanyuan Haoyu’s entire body trembled, and his eyes suddenly widened, “Is that so?”</p>

<p>Suddenly he reached out and took hold of her soft white hand.</p>

<p>“Why are you holding my hand?”</p>

<p>"Let go! "</p>

<p>Seeing this, Feng Zhiyao’s heart was alarmed. Could he have noticed something?</p>

<p>She hurriedly tried to withdraw her hand!</p>

<p>“Pulse check!”</p>

<p>Suddenly, a smile bloomed on his face, embellishing the calm and reserved aura on his handsome face. His phoenix eyes were pitch black, and there was a clear and graceful arc on his sexy crimson lips.</p></blockquote>
