“Wifey, is the candle too bright for you to sleep?”
Dibei Chen asked, concerned as he suddenly got up from the floor. Baili Hongzhuang couldn’t help but be surprised and immediately pointed,
“The red candle’s too bright, I’m not used to it”
Her heart couldn’t help but feel a little guilty. In fact, she couldn’t sleep because of Dibei Chen!
The room turned dark as Dibei Chen blew out the candle. “Now wifey can rest well.”
“Thank you.” Baili Hongzhuang replied and the room fell into silence.
Oh well, she just won’t sleep tonight and have a good rest tomorrow.
Suddenly, Baili Hongzhuang heard light footsteps coming from outside the door.
Although the footsteps were actually very quiet, as a cultivator, her hearing was far above an ordinary person’s and almost immediately discovered them.
It’s so late, who would be sneaking around outside their door?
Just when Baili Hongzhuang was about to get up to see who was being so sneaky, her body was suddenly pinned down by a large silhouette.
Baili Hongzhuang couldn’t help and scream, but Dibei Chen covered her mouth, not allowing a single sound to leak through.
Dibei Chen leaned close to her ear, his voice low as he whispered, “The walls have ears (Someone may be listening).”
Hearing his voice, Baili Hongzhuang’s tense body relaxed a little as she started to think. Only the Emperor could’ve sent these people!
Although she still wasn’t clear what Dibei Chen’s identity was, she knew that the Emperor was very wary of him.
As for the rumor about him being an illegitimate child, Baili Hongzhuang didn’t believe it at all after learning his true strength.
Baili Hongzhuang looked at Dibei Chen and gestured for him to get down. Just how much longer does this guy want to lie on her body!
Although Dibei Chen wasn’t very heavy, this face-to-face posture… it was just too ambiguous.
“Wife, you’re so beautiful.”
Dibei Chen’s voice was low and hoarse, his eyes staring at this woman whose beauty could overturn entire cities, and a strange feeling spread in his heart.
Moonlight peeked through the window, spilling in the room. It was just barely enough to see the other’s face, beautiful and hazy, making the atmosphere even more intoxicating.
Baili Hongzhuang was slightly startled. This was the first time she saw Dibei Chen’s face up close.
She could clearly feel his breath on her skin, burning hot yet somewhat itchy. She couldn’t help but want to shrink her neck away.
The pair of bewitching, deep eyes were glowing with a dazzling light. Even the starry sky was lost to his sparkling eyes.
The two stared at one another. In that moment, they almost forgot about the people standing outside the door. In their eyes, there were only each other.
The room was extremely quiet. Baili Hongzhuang could clearly hear her own heartbeat hammering in her chest, ‘thump’, ‘thump’, interrupting her usual calmness.
“In my opinion, Prince Chen definitely won’t have a problem. Princess Baili, is such a rare beauty, who would deliberately choose to miss the opportunity?”
“But, why isn’t there any sound?”
Outside the room, they were putting their ears on the door, listening for any movement inside the room. Although they weren’t sure why they were given such a job, since the higher ups told them to do so, they could only do it.
Dibei Chen rapped his knuckles on the headboard and moved a little.
Hearing the sounds, understanding smiles appeared on the two faces outside. It looks like they can report back with accomplishments!
As the two’s footsteps walked away, Baili Hongzhuang was relieved. The two were finally dealt with. “You can get down now.”
Dibei Chen looked at her with a smile, “Wifey, you’re blushing……”
