Why give up? Murong Shuyu slightly turned around, then with complicated feeling circulating in her eyes for a long time, she softly sighed: “Young Master Ximen must be joking, the circumstance forced me to give up, no matter whether I want to give up or not, I have to accept the reality, isn’t that so? Even if I made a move, that will merely stall for the time, the final outcome will not change, since it is like that, why waste time?”
Long Yi looked at Murong Shuyu and smiling weirdly, he said: “It’s impossible for you to not know the current situation of Blue Waves Continent, even if you can delay for only a day, it would have benefited your Proud Moon Empire.”
Murong Shuyu was startled, and she didn’t answer, just recalled the entire conversation she had with her grandfather Murong Bo at that night. She still deeply remembered the words of Murong Bo: At present, all under the heaven, if there is anyone that can unify the entire Blue Waves Continent, then that is only Ximen clan but no one else. If you want to end the war at an earlier date, then you have to exhaust all of the possibilities to make things convenient for them.
The words of Murong Bo made Murong Shuyu struggle for a long time, but she finally made this difficult decision, and thinking of the Emperor of Proud Moon Empire who had treated her as if she was his biological daughter from childhood, she felt guilty in her heart.
“Princess Shuyu?” Seeing Murong Shuyu was not answering for a long time and only was frowning lost in her thoughts, Long Yi couldn’t help calling out.
“I want to calm down for a bit by myself, Young Master Ximen, please return to the banquet hall.” Murong Shuyu closed her eyes and said. She didn’t want to let Long Yi see her perplexed eyes.
“If that is the case, then I will go, in any case, thank you.” Long Yi also didn’t insist, he just turned away.
The banquet to celebrate victory perfectly came to an end. Late in the night, countless stars were accompanied by a gentle breeze, appearing quiet and also serene.
Flying under such dim light of night, Long Yi returned to Ximen residence with the signs of being drunk. When he arrived at his courtyard, he saw a figure standing in the courtyard as if she was freed from this world, and watching the flowing brook water, she seemed to be thinking about something.
“Xiangyun, it’s already so late, why didn’t you sleep?” Long Yi glided down, and hugging the waist from behind, he asked.
“My husband, you are back, I’ll go and prepare you a cup of tea.” Nangong Xiangyun came back to her sense and under the starlight, her pupils appeared especially sparkling and crystal-clear.
Long Yi tighten the hug and said with a smile: “No thanks, let me hug you just like this.” Finished speaking, Long Yi buried his head on the fragrant shoulder of Nangong Xiangyun.
Nangong Xiangyun let go of her soft body, and closing her eyes, she enjoyed the warmth of her husband. Being surrounded by the warmth of her husband, she was very happy. She raised her hand and gently rubbed the head of Long Yi. In just this fashion, under the dim light of the night, two people comforted each other, feeling they were giving one’s meager resources to help another in time of need.
“My husband, you should go and accompany Miss Beitang, I just saw her looking around.” After a long time, Nangong Xiangyun suddenly struggled free from the bosom of Long Yi and softly said.
Long Yi was startled, thinking about it, in these past few days, he was truly ignoring Beitang Yu, this bull-like stubborn girl. Every day, she went through challenging experiences in military camp and also was trying
hard to absorb all the knowledge he had taught. Moreover, she was very strict to herself in training, compared to ordinary soldiers of Unparalleled Battalion, her training was twice as hard. Even with such intense training, she had never once said she was tried in front of him. And these past few days, even though he returned very late, he habitually only went to the room of Nangong Xiangyun and Leng Youyou, but never went to the room of Beitang Yu. Thinking about it now, he was very ashamed.
“Xiangyun, you are truly a good wife, being able to marry you is the good fortune of my three lives.” Long Yi smiled and hugged Nangong Xiangyun. Marrying her indeed wasn’t in vain, she was good at understanding others, gentle and shows consideration for others, simply wasn’t finicky.
“Don’t flatter, quickly go, the sky is almost bright.” Hearing her husband’s praise, Nangong Xiangun was full of smile feeling happy.
Long Yi nodded his head, then kissing the lips of Nangong Xiangyun, he went towards the room of Beitang Yu. He however didn’t notice the smile of Nangong Xiangyun gradually changing into bitterness, not because of jealousy, rather because of upcoming farewell.
Perhaps Long Yi was still unaware, but intelligent Nangong Xiangyun, after hearing Long Yi will be marrying Princess Nalan Ruyue of Nalan Empire for this alliance by marriage, she knew that now the time was pressing. After two days, Long Yi will hold a wedding ceremony with Nalan Ruyue in Soaring Dragon City, then Long Yi had to leave for Nalan Empire with Nalan Ruyue to greet. At that time, regardless of whether Violent Dragon Empire or the entire Blue Waves Continent, everything would be reshuffled cruelly. Moreover, war will occur repeatedly at that time, and she didn’t know when she would be able to meet him again.
Long Yi gently pushed open the door of Beitang Yu’s room. It was pitch-black inside and was full of faint fragrance which was extremely pleasant to smell.
Beitang Yu was lying on the big bed, and her entire body was covered with a quilt. Even her head wasn’t exposed outside, but he could hear melodious smooth breathing. She appeared to be sleeping.
