Yun Zhao observed Liu Yue closely for a moment before a splendid smile suddenly bloomed in his face as he approached Liu Yue with skipping steps.
“Heavens, that was really tiring.” Yun Zhao plopped down beside Liu Yue, grumpy and full of complaints. But his grumbles couldn’t hide the happiness and excitement in his voice.
Liu Yue glanced at Yun Zhao with a raised eyebrows but did not reply.
Yun Zhao had also gotten used to Liu Yue’s cold behaviour. He didn’t take it to her and instead poured two cups of tea, giving one to Liu Yue and gulping down the other one in his hands. He then said, “Didn’t I say that the title of the world’s number one is definitely yours? Now since it finally come true, can I take a look at the Blood Toad?”
As he said that, he reached out and took the Blood Toad away from Liu Yue’s hands, not even standing in ceremony with her.
Seeing this, Liu Yue raised her eyebrows but released her hands, letting Yun Zhao take the Blood Toad in her hands.
Observing the Blood Toad closely in his hands, Yun Zhao sighed full of admiration, “It was indeed a beautiful item. It was only right that my brother received such a beautiful item, only my brother deserves it.”
The way he says ‘my brother’ was very intimate. But he didn’t made unneccessary movements and returned the Blood Toad back to Liu Yue. It was as if he really just wanted to look at it only.
Seeing this, a flash of deep, profound look crossed Liu Yue’s eyes. But she didn’t say anything and took the Blood Toad back.
Drinking another cup of tea, Yun Zhao almost seemed like he was revived from his tiredness. Supporting himself on the table, he smiled sweetly towards Liu Yue and said, “Tomorrow you would be going on a journey to the Hou Jin Kingdom’s Capital. The Third-Ranked General title was not that high of a position. In my opinion, a person such as you, brother, should be offered even a higher position. I say, brother, why don’t you come along with me? I will bring you through adventures, and pay for your meals and accommodation. What’s mine will be yours too, how’s that? As your brother, I will definitely follow through my words.”
Yun Zhao chirped his intimate offer straightforwardly, as if he had become sworn brothers with Liu Yue or went through a lifetime of relationship with her.
Hearing this, a faintly discernable smile appeared on Liu Yue’s face. It was extremely vague that it was difficult to make out the meaning behind the smile.
Yun Zhao had finally asked her about it.
“I want to become an official.” Replying Yun Zhao with a curt sentence, a choked Yun Zhao stared at Liu Yue for a while, not knowing what to reply her with.
