“The carriage is ready. You can take Ah Luo back with you.”
Though reluctant to let her go, Feng Qingtian knew that he had to do it; otherwise, if anything happened to her, he didn’t know if he could find her again in his next reincarnation.
He didn’t want to spend another nine long and lonely lives without her.
Holding his hand, Gu Bailu somehow had the feeling that she would never see him again after she left.
It made her very upset.
She thought that she would be with Feng Qingtian for the rest of her life, and that he would never let go of her, not after searching and waiting for her for so many lives.
But he was pushing her away so determinedly.
Gu Bailu was conflicted. She knew that he was doing this for her, but she still felt bad.
“Honey, are you sure that there won’t be any danger?”
If there was danger, she could face it with him. Though she wasn’t a strong fighter, she was good support.
“No, silly girl. It’s you they’re after, not me. You’ll be back after a holiday of a few days.”
Feng Qingtian was comforted by her concern for him.
She wasn’t as indifferent as she seemed.
He was satisfied. He would take the throne and put an end to everything, so that they would never be parted again.
Thankfully, they wouldn’t be far away from each other even during the separation.
“Then I’m off.” Gu Bailu was no longer suspicious, seeing how confident he was. Also, she could always return in time if he really was in danger.
She had secretly planted a teleportation point in the yard, which would allow her to get here instantly.
“Okay.” Feng Qingtian kissed her deeply and immediately let go of her.
Gu Bailu got into the carriage and decided to regard the separation as a short holiday.
But after the carriage reached the back gate, a tear suddenly rolled down her face. She didn’t know that parting would be so difficult.
She lifted the curtain and looked back. Of course, the buildings blocked everything, but with her Heavenly Eye, she saw that Feng Qingtian was still standing where she had left him.
His fists were clenched, and his eyes were red.
She was crying when she didn’t love him as much as he loved her.
So, he had to be even more miserable in his heart at seeing her off.
Leaning back in the carriage, Gu Bailu knew that she had to leave so that those who wanted to kill her couldn’t find her, which would be one less weight on his mind.
Back in her house, Gu Bailu found a lot of strangers.
Had Feng Qingtian sent them over to serve her?
But why would she need the services of so many people?
Or were they the secret troop? But shouldn’t they be hiding?
“My lady, they’re the people with skills that you asked to hire. They couldn’t stay at Prince Zi’s house, so they were sent here,” the butler explained to her.
Gu Bailu smiled bitterly. “Just let them stay. Prince Zi kicked me back here, anyway.”
The butler kept his head bowed and didn’t dare say anything.
“How was the house when I was away? Anyone disobedient?” Gu Bailu calmed down and asked.
The butler replied respectfully, “They’re all very dutiful. You should get some rest, my lady.”
The butler could tell that Gu Bailu wasn’t in a good mood.
But that was understandable for a woman who had been kicked out when she was pregnant.
Gu Bailu nodded. She wasn’t in the best mood.
