She touched her abdomen and whispered, Kid, what’s wrong with your mother?
Feng Qingtian met Ye Huai in the study.
Ye Huai was drinking water to rehydrate. He said, “My lord, it’s a good thing we went to Senior Hu, or we would never have learned of the emperor’s ploy.”
Ye Huai had visited Senior Hu overnight, and then returned right away without taking a break.
He had disrupted Senior Hu who was training in seclusion, but had secured important information.
“What did Senior Hu say?” asked Feng Qingtian.
“Senior Hu set up an altar and performed the ritual. He didn’t find anything at first, as an expert has covered the emperor with a protective barrier. I knew that it was serious, and asked Senior Hu to continue investigating no matter what. In the end, at the cost of thirty years of his cultivation, Senior Hu discovered that the emperor met someone.”
Feng Qingtian frowned. “Who?”
“No idea. Senior Hu didn’t recognize him. Also, the guy’s spiritual power is extremely formidable. Senior Hu didn’t dare continue investigating, for fear that the guy would trace it back to him.”
Ye Huai took out a drawing from his pocket. “This is a portrait of that guy. Do you know who he is?”
Ye Huai knew that Feng Qingtian’s identity was special, and that Feng Qingtian knew more people than he did.
Feng Qingtian unrolled the scroll to see a drawing of a handsome man. He was wearing a loose and graceful robe, and there was wisdom in his eyes.
Not only was he gorgeous, he also had a casual air about him, as if everything in the world was under his control.
Feng Qingtian’s face changed dramatically. “It’s him.”
Why would he come to the mortal world? How was it possible?
“Do you know him, my lord?” Ye Huai knew that it was bad when he saw Feng Qingtian’s face.
Feng Qingtian didn’t reply. He simply said, “Summon the Ye family’s secret troop and have them protect the princess 24 hours a day from him.”
Ye Huai was confused. How was the princess involved in this?
The princess was useless, and this man was obviously a tough big shot. Did the princess know him too?
Exactly who was the princess?
“Okay, I’m on it.”
Feng Qingtian returned to the bedroom. Gu Bailu had already gotten up, and was waiting for him in her pajamas.
Seeing that his expression was even worse than when he left, she asked quickly, “Is it bad?”
“Lulu, listen to me.” Feng Qingtian held her in his arms and touched her forehead. “We have to separate for a few days. I’ve asked Ye Huai and the secret troop to protect you. Don’t be too worried when you’re at the Gu house. I’ll take the throne as soon as possible.”
“Okay.” Gu Bailu reached out to hug him. “Will you be in danger?”
The thing that made Feng Qingtian so anxious couldn’t be good. If the enemy was from the heavens, they might be too strong, even for him.
She didn’t want anything to happen to Feng Qingtian.
She had no idea what she would do if something did happen to him.
“No, he won’t hurt me so easily. As long as you’re safe, I’m not worried.” Feng Qingtian kissed her forehead and said, “Remember, don’t meet up with any unfamiliar men, and stay in the Gu house as much as possible.”
