“King Mu has arrived!”
Before Nan Yi Sheng could reply, there was a voice that came from outside.
Mu Han Che walked in right after. He was wearing a black robe with a cold glow in his eyes, releasing a chill that kept people a thousand miles away.
The moment he entered, his eyes had been on Luo Qing Chen the entire time, never leaving.
“The crown prince of the Nan Chao Country has come far, this one really has been rude.” Mu Han Che revealed a faint smile and said, “Please sit, please sit.”
This was Luo Qing Chen and even the previous host’s first time seeing Mu Han Che smiling. It was like a snow lotus that bloomed on an ice mountain, which really made one’s heart tremble.
The only person he had shown this to should be the current Mu Country’s queen!
Nan Yi Sheng gave a slight nod, “It should be us who is troubling King Mu.”
He looked at Luo Qing Chen and seeing her clear as water eyes focused on Mu Han Che, he couldn’t help feeling a bit of discomfort in his heart.
In the end, she still loved him.
From the past to now, from now to the future.
“How could that be? The crown prince and the crown princess coming to the Mu Country is our Mu Country’s honour, I’ve prepared these desserts in advance.” He looked at the table with a chill in his eyes, “Why haven’t you had a taste, does it not suit your highness’ tastes?”
Before Nan Yi Sheng spoke, Mu Han Che’s expression changed as he said to the eunuch behind him, “Someone, have the imperial chef who prepared the desserts torn limb from limb by horses and then throw it into the mass graves.”
“Yes, King Mu.” The eunuch was surprised, but he still immediately responded with beads of sweat falling from his forehead.
“King Mu, there’s no need to be this angry.” Luo Qing Chen slightly knitted her brows, but she had a smile on her face as she poured a cup of tea and drank it all, “I think that it’s quite good.”
He looked at her like it was his first time seeing her, as his eyes became deep and blurry at the same time.
But now they had their masters. He was the king of the Mu Country and she was the princess of the Nan Chao Country’s crown prince.
“It’s good if the crown princess thinks it’s good.” Mu Han che narrowed his cold eyes as his face recovered from the chill from before, with the same curved lips that he had from the beginning.
But Luo Qing Chen knew that this smile represented his endless indifference……
“Then many thanks, King Mu.” She could see that his eyes weren't as expectant as before, but rather it was now indifferent.
Mu Han Che just quietly looked at Luo Qing Chen for a few seconds, like bottomless pools of ice.
He could feel his own heart skipping a beat which really hurt him.
It was as if something that was marked by him, something that belonged to him forever suddenly no longer belonged to him.
There was another man by her side, a man who could never fall in love with her.
But this man had actually brought her to the Mu Country, not letting her stay forever in the Nan Chao Country.
He didn’t know what he was thinking, he just knew that he could see a bit of greed in Nan Yi Sheng’s eyes.
Once a person had greed, they would be caught up in the secular world and would fall into a bottomless abyss.
Therefore, he didn’t let himself have this greed. No friends, no family, and…..no lovers.
“Xiao Li Zi, take care of our guests over the next few days. If there is anything wrong, come see me with your head raised.” He looked at the eunuch behind him with a smile, “Your highness can stay here for a few days, there will be nothing restricted to you. Or if you want to leave, just come and tell me.”
“Many thanks for King Mu’s care.”
