<p>“Uh-huh!”</p>

<p>Xuanyuan Haoyu’s phoenix eyes flashed with a teasing glint. With a soft sound of acknowledgement, he immediately picked her up by the waist. Lightly raising his foot, he leaped lightly onto the roof.</p>

<p>The night was quiet, with occasional bird call and the soft sound of the night wind blowing across the grass and the branches of the trees.</p>

<p>A bright moon was embedded in the dark night sky. Under the swaying shadows of the trees, two figures gracefully landed on the eaves made of logs.</p>

<p>“It is indeed a beautiful night!”</p>

<p>Feng Zhiyao’s voice was as beautiful as a spring in the mountains, clear and melodious. It was especially pleasant to hear in this quiet night.</p>

<p>“Today is the anniversary of my Mother’s death.”</p>

<p>A sorrowful look flashed on Xuanyuan Haoyu’s jade-like handsome face. He took a short flute from his waist and lightly stroked it with his hand, before suddenly playing a luscious and resentful melody.</p>

<p>“Oh …”</p>

<p>Feng Zhiyao didn’t know what she should say at this moment. She made an “oh” sound and started to rub her hands together. The night wind was really cold, so she couldn’t help but sneeze.</p>

<p>He stopped playing the flute when he heard her unseemly sneezing? Instead, he embraced her in his arms.</p>

<p>“Sometimes, you and my Mother really look alike, the same beautiful, the same delicate.”</p>

<p>His tough chin gently rested on her smooth forehead, gently stroking it.</p>

<p>“Your Highness King of Jing, it’s late, I’m tired. I want to go back to my room to sleep!”</p>

<p>Feng Zhiyao only felt that the smell of ambergris was a little terrifying. She subconsciously thought, “Any pretty boy is fine, but it’s best not to touch the imperial men, otherwise, trouble will keep coming.”</p>

<p>Xuanyuan Haoyu also felt that he had been too courteous with her and hurriedly let go.</p>

<p>“Alright!”</p>

<p>He grabbed her by the hand, they jumped off the ledge.</p>

<p>As soon as Feng Zhiyao’s feet touched the ground, she immediately ran towards her own room.</p>

<p>Seeing her run away, the corners of Xuanyuan Haoyu’s lips curved up in a smile. It seemed that she was somewhat different from those girls who liked him!</p>

<p>….</p>

<p>After that night, Feng Zhiyao intentionally or unintentionally avoided the sight of Xuanyuan Haoyu. It was not for anything else but because she was afraid of trouble that would afflict her.</p>

<p>Very quickly, they arrived at Su Yang region.</p>

<p>Naturally, Situ Yelei also went with them. When he arrived at the city gates of Su Yang City, he parted ways with them!</p>

<p>Su Yang’s Prefect Lu Dabao kneeled down in front of Xuanyuan Haoyu, trembling with fear and cold sweat. He really regretted spending money to buy such a lousy official position.</p>

<p>Feng Zhiyao was wearing a white swallow dress with a veil attached to it. Why was she dressed like this?</p>

<p>There were simply too many locusts in Su Yang.</p>

<p>“Lu Dabao, do you know your guilt?”</p>

<p>Xuanyuan Haoyu’s cold gaze swept over him, carrying a trace of coldness.</p>

<p>“I …”</p>

<p>“I…”</p>

<p>Lu Dabao had never seen such a scene before, he hurriedly kowtowed towards Xuanyuan Haoyu.</p>

<p>Seeing him like this, Xuanyuan Haoyu’s eyes narrowed, instantly returning to a calm state, but his beautiful crimson lips drew a mocking arc.</p>

<p>This Lu Dabao was recommended by the Internal Affairs Minister Gu Zhendong’s son, Governor Jiang Haican. Who would have thought that he was actually an idiot!</p>

<p>Gu Zhendong was one of the crown prince’s men, so he couldn’t punish him. However, this idiot …</p>

<p>Hmph!</p>

<p>“Your Highness, King of Jing, I will definitely rack my brains to help Lady Feng deal with the locust plague!”</p>

<p>Lu Dabao was over forty years old. His face was full of wrinkles and his eyes were cloudy. He must have been lustful, yet he actually fainted after kneeling for a while.</p>

<p>However, the guards woke him up with water again!</p>

<p>“Mincan, gather all the chickens and ducks that Miss Zhiyao has sent to the Su Bei Village. It’s said that there are the most locusts there!”</p>

<p>Li Mincan nodded and quickly turned his horse, heading in direction of Su Bei Village.</p>

<p>“That …”</p>

<p>“I’ll go too. He doesn’t know much about these things.”</p>

<p>Feng Zhiyao thought that Situ Yelei just left, now that Li Mincan had also left, she didn’t want to stay and watch him punish corrupt officials.</p>

<p>“He alone is enough, you stay!”</p>

<p>"Go to Bai Ma Temple with me, and leave your personal maid at the Governor’s mansion! "</p>

<p>Xuanyuan Haoyu suddenly got up and let guards drag Lu Dabao, who had been crying for injustice, into the custody.</p>

<p>“Your Highness King of Jing, I don’t want to go to the temple. Can I not go?”</p>

<p>Feng Zhiyao said with an embarrassed smile. What a joke. Bai Ma Temple was built on top of a very, very tall mountain. She’s very lazy and didn’t want to climb up, wa that okay?</p>

<p>“What do you think?”</p>

<p>Xuanyuan Haoyu stared at her, causing her pretty face to stop smiling unnaturally.</p>

<p>“Sigh, I’ll just risk my life to accompany you!”</p>

<p>Feng Zhiyao faintly sighed.</p>

<p>….</p>

<p>It was a hot summer day, and they were sweating profusely as walking.</p>

<p>But the hill near Bai Ma Temple was planted with pine trees, and the green trees stood tall and straight, and the brook ran between them, and the banks of the brook were covered with clumps of wild gardenia, and the pure white petals danced in the wind, and it was a wonderful sight to behold.</p>

<p>Feng Zhiyao thought, King of Jing must have punished her for winning the chess game last time. He could hire a palanquin to go up the mountain to pray for good fortune. Why did he have to let her walk on foot?!</p>

<p>It was so hot!</p>

<p>Bai Ma Temple was already right in front of them. The majestic and towering temple was filled with people who had come to offer incense.</p>

<p>The peddlers were not afraid that the mountain roads would be difficult to travel, so they brought some things to sell. There were some who sold needlepoint and scented pouches, some sold cakes and sweets, and all of them were placed outside the temple, where people had to pass by. The monks in the temple also seized the opportunity to buy what they needed, did not chase them away.</p>

<p>This was very similar to Jiu Yin Temple in Xian Yang. Feng Zhiyao suddenly remembered the fairy-like beauty — Li Jinran. This time, when she returned to Xian Yang, she must find him and see if there was a way to cure his leg disease.</p>

<p>The people who entered the temple worshipped the Buddha, and then asked for their signs.</p>

<p>She followed them in, but she did not worship or ask for a sign. She put her hands behind her back and gazed at the statues of Buddha. Everyone was so focused on worshipping that no one noticed her daydreaming about the beautiful man.</p>

<p>Xuanyuan Haoyu went to solve the problem with his sign. Seeing the kids eating the candied fruits with relish, Feng Zhiyao also bought one and ate. They were made from hawthorn fruits, and the taste was very sweet.</p>

<p>“Why are you eating candied fruits here? Why aren’t you asking for your sign?”</p>

<p>It was Xuanyuan Haoyu’s voice. When he asked this question, everyone nodded in curiosity.</p>

<p>“I don’t want to ask for a sign!”</p>

<p>Feng Zhiyao lazily replied, then continued licking the candied fruits with great relish.</p>

<p>“Why?”</p>

<p>"Don’t you want to know your future? "</p>

<p>Xuanyuan Haoyu looked at her with a smile and asked with a pampered face.</p></blockquote>
