Pingfei cried tears of joy as she held her small hand in excitement. He didn't expect that after staying in the ice-cold harem for so many years, he would encounter such a good thing in his later years.
Have you really opened your eyes?
"You agree?" Xiaoxiao could feel the excitement in Princess Pingping's heart. She, who was eye-catching, immediately cried out emotionally, "Mother!"
"Good!" Good! "Good boy!" Pingfei pulled Xiaoxiao up from the ground and made her sit beside her. In her joy, she nervously pulled out a small package wrapped in red cloth from her waist.
He carefully opened the red cloth. The layer after layer of the red cloth was wrapped very tightly. Finally, what appeared before Xiaoxiao was a kind of golden peacock hairpin. The golden hairpin was exquisite and gorgeous. With a single glance, one could tell that it wasn't something that an ordinary master could forge.
"This is something that mother loves the most. It was bestowed upon me by the Emperor when he bestowed me with the title of 'Consort'. Mother is already old and I don't need this thing anymore. Mother will give it to you. " As she spoke, she stuffed the golden hairpin into her hands and gave a knowing smile.
This was a testament to her past story. It was also a kind of nostalgia for the Emperor's grace. All these years, she had carried it with her. However, at this moment, she felt that there was no need. This was because she understood the happiness of giving up from this tiny body.
"No, no, no! How can that be? This is the witness between you and royal father in the past, and is also your most precious thing. She shook her head repeatedly and returned the golden hairpin to her hand. How could she accept such a precious gift?
Perhaps, this was the only witness to the past, as the emotional value of this item was much higher than its actual value.
"Giving up is also a kind of happiness, as you said. So, this is just a beautiful hairpin, a gift from a mother to her daughter! " Pang Fei grabbed a small hand and stuffed the hairpin into it once more. He looked at her with a strange expression in his eyes. For a long time, he didn't see her speak.
"But …" "Me!"
Seeing that she had made up her mind, she could only obediently wrap the hairpin with the piece of red cloth and carefully place it in the small pocket at her waist.
"Mother will definitely live well. It's best if you don't come back in the future." Pingfei sighed deeply and said unwillingly.
"No, no, no! "In the future, I will come see mom every day. I want mom to live a happy life, and won't let those hateful women bully me again." Little Jun shook his head vigorously, feeling angry at the thought of that damned Queen.
And there was also that damned Blue Rain Smoke. This time, he had to properly deal with that bitch, or else he wouldn't be able to relieve the unhappiness in her heart.
Pingfei shook her head sternly and said, "No! "You can't mess with the empress. That evil woman will come to collect her. It's enough for mother to see you safe and sound."
"Mother!" "I …" Xiaoxiao wanted to explain more, but she suddenly stood up and started singing and jumping crazily in the pavilion.
Little Ping knew that the bad guy in the dark had appeared again.
Tears couldn't help but trickle down her cheeks onto her palms. Looking at her life being completely monitored, her heart ached uncontrollably.
However, she had to pretend that she knew nothing, because that was the only way for her to live safely, as if she was living a life of death.
She quietly watched as Pingfei laughed with her tattered clothes. After a while, she wiped the tears off her face and pretended to ignore her as she strode towards the main entrance of the rouge hall.
Pingfei watched Xiaoxiao leave and watched as the main door of the rouge hall was closed. Only then did she stop in a slightly exhausted manner. She sat down on the ground and leaned against the pillar. A faint smile appeared on her face.
Furthermore, Xiaoxiao came out from the main entrance and wanted to rush to the courtyard of her hall. At this moment, she only wanted to bathe and change clothes so that she could have a good night's sleep. Then, she could think of a way to deal with that woman, Lan Yuyan.
Unfortunately, the heavens did not let her have her way. Just as she had taken a few steps out of the door, she bumped into Xuanyuan Ye who was rushing over to confirm her whereabouts.
As he approached, he respectfully greeted, "How is sister-in-law?"
Xiaoxiao kept her head lowered as she pondered over something. Hearing the familiar voice, she raised her head and realized that Xuanyuan Ye was already standing right in front of her. His handsome appearance, the gentle, irresistible smile on his face, made her heart beat faster, and for a moment she forgot what she had to say.
"Mistress, San Ye wants to greet you again!" Ling'er saw that her master was continuously looking at Xuanyuan Ye's face and hurriedly used her hand to push him away.
Xiaoxiao came back to her senses and smiled foolishly straight at Xuanyuan Ye, stammering, "When did Master San come back?"
"I came back this morning. I haven't seen my sister-in-law for a long time. How have you been?" Xuanyuan Ye was also unable to shift his gaze away from Xiaoxiao. The two of them were like magnets, they could no longer be separated once they were sucked in.
After not seeing her for so long, the little girl had lost a lot of weight. I don't know how my brother treated her. Poor, sad, because he seemed powerless to do anything about it.
Little Ping wanted to say yes, but when she thought about what she had experienced in the past few days, she felt extremely resentful. "With your despicable mother, how good will my days be?!"
Her voice was low, afraid that the fourth person would be in trouble. However, after she finished speaking, she saw the expression on Xuanyuan Ye's face and started to regret.
Sigh … No matter what, it was still her mother! Her mother did not have a choice, and that was not his problem. Look, he's got a pear!
Looking at him with guilty eyes, she felt rather sorry.
"Right... I'm sorry, my mother didn't do it on purpose, she just … "But …" Xuanyuan Ye stuttered for a long time, but didn't say the second half of the sentence.
"But what?" Xiaoxiao really couldn't hear what he was saying. She leaned forward and put her ear close to his mouth. Such a distance couldn't help but cause the people who were walking over to stop thinking.
Anger, hatred in their eyes, someone's clenched fist just short of a place to vent, his lips twitching with suppressed anger, turned and hurried away.
"Tell me!" But what? " Seeing Xuanyuan Ye look at his with a dull expression on his face had aroused her teasing feelings towards him. He was feeling extremely happy in his heart.
At such a distance, as long as he wasn't paying attention, he could place his lips on her face. Xuanyuan Ye looked at her exquisite features up close, his eyes that could no longer be moved away completely occupied by her beauty. If she hadn't promised her big brother, he would definitely marry her in this lifetime.
He forcefully shook his hands in front of Xuanyuan Ye, feeling that this brat's silly appearance was really cute. Furthermore, he was very similar to someone. Bewildered, he tilted his little head to look at him and blinked his big, watery eyes.
Tap, tap, tap!
After retreating a few steps, Xuanyuan Ye lowered his head in embarrassment. His face flushed red and for a long time, he was no longer in the mood to raise his head.
Xiaoxiao laughed without caring about her status as she raised her head and pointed at Xuanyuan Ye with her long sleeves. She thought about it for a long time but did not know what to say.
"Master, master …" Seeing her master lose his composure, Ling'er couldn't help but remind him.
"Ugh!" Xiaoxiao regained her senses and hurriedly covered her mouth and laughed.
"Mistress, it's getting late. You should go back." Ling'er said softly, her gaze fixated on Xuanyuan Ye who was bowing his head in silence.
If she could, she really wanted to not go back to that hateful nest, see that hateful couple, and live in that big cage while swallowing her anger.
Unfortunately, he was unable to control himself. If it was in the modern world, she would definitely not let go of the opportunity to tease Xuanyuan Ye. She had to at least drool.
She straightened her chest and wiped the saliva off the corner of her lips with her sleeve. She put on the appearance of a lady from a noble family and slightly bowed towards Xuanyuan Ye as she said, "Xiaoxiao will be leaving now. Come and take a seat if you're free!"
Ling'er was stunned by her master's tone. This wasn't what a proper woman should say. If anyone else had heard this, they would have heard it. Frowning, she really wanted to say something, but after thinking about it, she still did not reveal her identity.
However, when she turned around, she saw another man appearing not far away. The man was looking at her with a strange expression on his face.
"Greetings, Ling'er!" She purposely raised her voice in greeting.
Xiaoxiao did not immediately shift her gaze away as she kept cursing Xuanyuan Jie in her heart. She absent-mindedly took out a silk handkerchief and wiped her face, then stuck her head out and stuck out her chest as she twisted her small waist and headed towards the Dragon Cry Hall without even turning back.
Xuanyuan Jie had not thought that his hatred for him had reached such an extent. He looked at the tiny figure of his back with some disappointment, and his heart was fiercely shaken.
However, this expression only stayed for a moment. After changing to a terrifying smile that was not a smile, he turned around and headed in the direction of the Dragon Domain Palace.
Xiao Bu Dian's eyeballs were wandering around, he had even peeked back a few times and found that Xuanyuan Ye was still standing foolishly on the spot. Looking at Xuanyuan Jie's back figure, she felt that this man's face could sometimes be faster than flipping books. He was truly not inferior to Xuanyuan Zhi. Although the two brothers were of the same father, they also possessed royal blood. Even though their characters were different, they still possessed a kind of rude and domineering attitude.
Ling'er followed behind, her eyes never stopping as she returned to look at the two brothers, a conflicted expression on her face.
Thus, the master and the servant walked through the corridors, passed by several courtyards, and finally returned to the main entrance of the Hall of Longxi. Suddenly, Xiaoxiao stopped walking and frowned as she looked at the big words written on the door.
"Jump!" What are you jumping for! " Her eyelids suddenly began to twitch violently. She nervously pressed her hand to her eyelids and muttered something.
"Master, what's wrong?" Ling'er walked in front of her master, and her eyelids twitched. She had a nagging feeling that something bad was about to happen.
He shook his head and took a deep breath, then closed his eyes and opened them again. Looking at Ling'er, she shook her head in puzzlement. "My eyes jumped too much on the way back, I don't know …"
Before he could finish his words, he heard a burst of women's wild laughter coming from inside. When he heard it again, his overly candid laughter turned into a flirtatious shriek, causing both master and servant to prick their ears.
They looked at each other and exchanged a look with tacit understanding.
Then, the two of them walked in at the same time.
He saw that the courtyard was empty. The empty corridor had been filled with violets at some point, and it was the type that was extremely lush. The fragrance assaulted his nose, almost causing him to faint from disgust with the smell.
