Liu Yue furrowed her brows deep in contemplation as she played with the small cup of wine in her hands absent-mindedly. The Crown Prince of the Ao Yun Kingdom had actually had the audacity to display such arrogance. Xuan Yuan Cheng had already waited for his arrival for half a day, yet he still had not arrived.
However, it did not matter. It wasn’t her that was losing face.
As a family you should share go through both glory and defeat together. However, this quote did not apply to her.
Xuan Yuan Che sat opposite Liu Yue garbed in a plain attire. He shook his head when he saw Liu Yue playing with the wine. Wine is for drinking, not for playing with. He was just about to laugh and comment, when Xuan Yuan Che seemed to notice something, stopping to study Liu Yue properly. After a few moments he commented, “You seem to have grown taller. ”
As he was saying this, he stretched out his hands and squeezed Liu Yue’s cheeks, then smiled and nodded, “and rounder.”
Usually, Liu Yue loved to sit on his lap, and so he didn’t really notice any changes. Today, sitting opposite, he finally discovered that this Little Princess Consort of his had been eating healthily and growing well.
Hearing this, Liu Yue recalled her thoughts and pinched her cheeks a little. Have I gained weight? She didn’t even notice.
However, thinking about it, it should be her growing period. Girls mature early. Usually around thirteen years old, they would more or less finish their growing spurt. But as for her, the Mu Rong family had neglected her for so long that she was still like a bean sprout at the age of thirteen.
Ever since she moved to Liu Li Palace, Xuan Yuan Che had commanded Officer Han to make all kinds of dishes for her to eat. If she still didn’t exhibit any growth, then it would mean that she was forever condemned to be a runt.
“So what? Even if I become fat as a round ball, you are still mine. ” Liu Yue spoke confidently.
Xuan Yuan Che laughed at her words, and leaned over and pinched the tip of Liu Yue’s nose softly. He grinned, “So imperious. But I like it.”
Immediately, Liu Yue blew a kiss at Xuan Yuan Che happily. Xuan Yuan Che could only stare at her, rolling his eyes.
Seeing this, Liu Yue grinned cheerfully, making her doe eyes that glowed like obsidian squinted into a thin line.
Seeing Liu Yue grinned jubilantly, Xuan Yuan Che couldn’t help but smile himself. Leaning on the back of his chair, he held the wine cup with his fingertips as he looked endearingly at Liu Yue. With a faint smile, he asked, “So when are you going to show me your true appearance? I don’t want to be unable to recognize my Little Princess Consort in the future.”
Liu Yue had known from the beginning that Xuan Yuan Che knew that she had hidden her appearance, but he had never enquired, now it seems he cannot resist any longer.
Liu Yue’s mouth quirked and replied, “Then……”
“The Crown Prince of the Ao Yun Kingdom had arrived.” As she was just about to speak, the loud announcer’s announcement rang out and interrupted Liu Yue.
Hearing this, Liu Yue and Xuan Yuan Che turned stopped their conversation, and looked towards the streets below.
The heavy footfalls of a procession resounded from afar and a purple flag fluttered in the wind. Two large words, AO YUN, were embroidered on the flag, looking proud and extremely arrogant…
