A warm hug with a cold breath and trembling fingers.
There was a faint scent of blood in the air as her right hand holding the jade dagger couldn’t help trembling.
She was very close to him and with the faint moonlight, she could see the black mark on his ear.
That familiar feeling was imprinted on her heart.
“Lin…...Lin Nan Yi……”
But then there was the sound of a eunuch that came from outside the Hidden Book Pavilion.
Lin Nan Yi raised his right hand and covered her mouth.
“Why is this door unlocked, is there someone inside?”
“How could there be anyone inside with no light? The eunuch in charge must have forgotten to lock it!”
With a “kacha” sound, the doors of the Hidden Book Pavilion were locked.
When the two left, Lin Nan Yi’s deep as ink voice slowly sounded with a bit of a chill, “It seems like the matter of killing this one…..was always in your heart.”
Luo Qing Chen was stunned and took a step back, but the jade dagger was still stuck in Lin Nan Yi’s chest.
She wanted to say something, but the words were stuck in her throat and she couldn’t say them.
There was always the feeling of not being able to wash it clean even if she jumped into the Yellow River when the word ‘assassination’ was mentioned.
“You…..Hold on…..I’ll go lift the bookshelf first.” She took a deep breath and pushed up the bookshelf.
The man standing to the side had a hand on the dagger and his other hand was on her hands, pushing as well.
The air was still turbid and she softly bit her lips. She controlled her rapid breathing to say to Lin Nan Yi, “Don’t move around, I’ll look at your wound.”
“Un.” He softly replied as his lips couldn’t help curling into a faint smile.
Wen De’s head didn’t need to be separated from his body this time. At least he knew to tell him immediately about her matters when he entered the palace this time.
[Ding, hatred has reset.]
The system’s notification made her look up, looking deeply into Lin Nan Yi’s dark eyes.
“The wound is a bit deep, let’s call someone.” She knitted her brows and said, “Pulling the dagger out here…..is too dangerous.”
She knew why he covered her mouth when that eunuch passed by.
The emperor was stabbed by a dagger and there was only the captured princess who attacked him countless times before, she would definitely be pushed into the spotlight again.
“Just do it here.” His face was a bit pale. Perhaps it was the effect of the smoke, but his breathing was a bit fast and there were beads of sweat on his forehead.
“But…..” Luo Qing Chen tightly knitted her brows. Seeing his calm look, she said, “There’s no gauze here either…..”
“Si!” He decisively tore the skirt that she had as he looked at her with sparkling eyes, “Just use this.”
“But…..” Luo Qing Chen looked at him in disbelief, still unable to make up her mind.
It was like he would see the worry in her eyes, the knitting of her brows, and her pursed lips. It was like…..she was worried about him.
This kind of feeling…..really…..wasn’t bad!
[Ding, affection has increased by ten. Mission completion rate is now 20%.]
“Ah?” This strange increase in affection didn’t make her feel happy since her hands were covered in his blood.
She had to admit that she was panicking a bit.
“What? Where did the decisiveness you had when you assassinated me go?” Lin Nan Yi suddenly raised his right hand and tightly grabbed the dagger she had been holding.
His lips curled as he pulled out the dagger without any hesitation.
