Chapter 201: Weak king’s seventh princess consort (Part 18)
The drum was playing the «Weeping Ode» and on stage was a pair in purple and white clothes acting out the life and death of a pair of lovers. It made people unable to stop their eyes from turning red.
Luo Qing Chen wiped her tears as she watched from under the stage. Chu Nan Xian saw how sad she looked and he said with knitted brows, “I suddenly regret bringing you out to see this play.”
“Don’t regret it, don’t regret it.” She saw his knitted brows and quickly shook her head, “Look how good it is! Being this brave just for love, giving up everything else!”
“But there’s no need to be this sad!” He softly stroked her head as his eyes filled with a pampering smile.
Actually he just didn’t want to see her feeling sad.
“That’s right!” Luo Qing Chen felt it was very logical as she shook her head. She said in a teasing voice, “This life and death scenario can only happen in a play. If we ever meet the same thing as them, we would already be sent on our way by a great disaster.”
“I won’t leave you!” His beautiful eyes glowed like the moon, filling with a glow of determination.
“My master, you’re so serious!” She leaned up against him and revealed a faint smile.
She was just teasing him, but she never thought that he would be this serious.
“Move aside, move aside, the crown prince is here and you’re not moving aside!” While Luo Qing Chen was focused on watching, there was a sound that came from the entrance.
“Quickly run, the crown prince is here!”
“Don’t kill me, don’t kill me……Ah——” After a scream, the man who called out fell into a pool of blood.
She slightly looked up and saw Chu Nan Xian tightly knitting his brows.
The citizens around them heard this and they all instantly panicked. According to the rumours, the crown prince was cold and arrogant, using very ruthless methods.
Seeing the real person now, their souls flew out in fear.
“Ah——” Luo Qing Chen wanted to get up when she was hit by a man. Then when the crowd surged forward, she was pushed into a corner.
“Qing Qing——” Chu Nan Xian watched as she was swept up into the crowd, but he couldn’t catch her.
But he didn’t give up. Although his face was pale, he kept charging in her direction.
Only when he saw her cute bewildered face did his heart finally settle a bit.
He quickly ran forward and grabbed her, but he suddenly realized that almost at the same time, her other hand was grabbed by someone else.
An enchanting smile appeared on Jun Yao Chen’s face as he looked at Luo Qing Chen while saying, “If the miss likes this kind of play, this crown prince can send them to the King Chu Manor to let them sing nightly. This is to repay the miss for that day’s……life saving grace.”
As his voice fell, he slightly raised one brow. He looked at Chu Nan Xian not far away with a look of challenge in his eyes.
“Many thanks to the crown prince for saving my wife.” Chu Nan Xian’s eyes narrowed as he softly pulled Luo Qing Chen towards himself. He looked right into Jun Yao Chen’s eyes and a cold aura that kept people thousands of miles away was released from him.
“Oh?” Jun Yao Chen’s lips curled slightly as he unhappily let go of Luo Qing Chen’s arm. His lips were slightly curled as he said, “No need to be polite.”
After saying this, with his hands behind his back, he walked toward the actors.
“From this day forth, you will perform in the King Chu Manor. If this miss does not like you, you better think about whether there is a need for you to remain alive in this world.” His enchanting voice slowly drifted out, just like the sound of a devil, filling her ears.
She wanted to say something, but she was stopped by Chu Nan Xian beside her.
He looked over and with tightly knit brows, he shook his head.
