The next morning, Luo Qing Chen got up and circled the library, but she couldn’t find Du Jiu Sheng.
Ye Mu was already back and had prepared breakfast for her. Wearing a pair of coffee coloured overalls, he looked quite young and energetic.
“Prin…..Qing Chen, this……” He almost called her princess, but he still changed it in time.
Luo Qing Chen had a faint smile as she walked over to him.
“I heard that you were in danger yesterday, it was all my incompetence.” Ye Mu said regretfully, “I should have always been by your side, whether there were ghosts or not.”
He was filled with deep guilt in his heart over not being able to protect her.
He had stayed in this world for six hundred years just to protect the reincarnated her. But when she was in danger, he couldn’t protect her.
“It’s fine……” Luo Qing Chen looked around before asking, “Why didn’t I see Jiu Sheng today?”
Ye Mu was surprised before a dark glow appeared in his eyes, “When the ghost gate was opened last night, Ming Si learned of his departure without permission and now he is under review.”
There was a red light around them and the glasses at the bar shattered.
A piece of broken glass slid across her right cheek and drew a line of blood down her face.
Luo Qing Chen slightly knitted her brows. She didn’t dodge at all as she stood there with a calm and composed look.
In an instant, Ye Mu appeared in front of her and those cheerful eyes turned cold. He narrowed his eyes to look at Ye Mu in front of him, “What do you want to do?”
“It’s all because of you……” Hong Yue clenched her fist and her eyes were filled with rage as she stared at Luo Qing Chen, looking at her with a murderous look, “If Jiu Sheng doesn’t come back, I definitely won’t let you off.”
Luo Qing Chen felt her strong skipping a beat, but her face was as calm as water, not seeing a single ripple.
Could it be that Du Jiu Sheng would be heavily punished? Seeing Hong Yue’s bloodshot eyes filled with rage, Luo Qing Chen thought that her guess wasn’t wrong.
She slightly knitted her brows and wanted to say something, but there was a familiar set of footsteps that came from outside the door.
“Da, da, da, da, da.”
Du Jiu Sheng appeared in front of her in a black sweater. His face was a bit pale, but his eyes were as deep as ever.
“Jiu Sheng……” Hong Yue softly called him, but he ignored her as he walked towards Luo Qing Chen.
He slowly took out a bandaid from his pocket and gently put it on the wound on her face, “I’m fine, I just went to the underworld palace for a bit.”
“Really?” Luo Qing Chen narrowed her eyes. Seeing his slightly pale face, there was a faint mist in her eyes.
She could see that he was acting strong because of his personality, he wouldn’t let her worry even if he was injured.
Du Jiu Sheng, ah Du Jiu Sheng, why is it that your personality still hasn’t changed after all this time?
“Of course.” Du Jiu Sheng looked into her eyes. Although his face was calm, there was a gentle tone to his voice, “Your master still has to protect you.”
He was suddenly very glad that he had this love tribulation. He could use this love tribulation as a cover to secretly like a person.
He knew that…..this couldn’t be controlled…..a happiness that was like fire.
“But what should I do?” Luo Qing Chen raised her hand and carefully touched his head as she pursed her lips to say, “I can’t do a single thing you said.”
