Chapter 709 The Empress Regnant’s Enchanting Consort (41)
This world plane’s side task was connected to the main task. Before she completed the side task.
It could not warn her that Feng Yunian already knew of Feng Ling’s existence.
It couldn’t even warn her that this world plane’s male lead had a twisted character.
After falling in love with someone, his love and favorability would not change, regardless of how the other party hurt him.
They would continue to rise.
But… the blackening value would go sky-high.
The system had broken many rules, and it would continue to break rules to allow her to smoothly advance through the ranks.
There would come a day when it couldn’t hide it from HQ…
When that happened…
The system snapped itself out of its tragic thoughts of the future. It subtly reminded, “The task isn’t done yet. Don’t get cocky.”
Bai Weiwei smugly smiled and said: “Leave it to me. I can do it.”
System: The reminder was basically ignored, ah.
After looking at the blueprint, Bai Weiwei flipped it over to reveal the garden location.
It’s very good here. No, it might be better to have a river that diverts water, but there’s a lotus field on this side. It’s so hard to choose.”
Feng Yunian gave her a side glance, his gaze as soft as water. The pain of being hurt by Feng Ling was slowly soothed by her gentle words.
At the very least, she still had him in her heart.
He had a humble and cowardly thought: it would be nice to just have him.
Bai Weiwei suddenly quirked her lips. She looked at him with a bright gaze. “Yunian, shall I give you a task?”
Feng Yunian sank into the depths of her beautiful eyes. He asked in a low voice: “What task?”
Bai Weiwei circled the garden’s location with her brush. “There are three possible sites for the garden, and I don’t know which one to choose. Since I will pick based on your preference, how about you check it out for yourself?”
Feng Yunian’s lashes trembled, and his fingers clenched against his will.
“Your Majesty, you won’t leave with me?”
Bai Weiwei’s lips were curled in a helpless but indulgent smile.
“Wish I could keep you by my side every day, but court affairs are so busy that I can only have you leave me for a bit.”
Going to inspect the garden sites would take at least six to seven days there and back.
The hope in Feng Yunian’s was doused by a cold chill.
He kept his voice gentle. “But I can’t bear to part with Your Majesty.”
Just as he finished saying this sentence, she moved away from him. There was bemusement in his eyes.
The corners of Bai Weiwei’s eyes held a faint tinge of a flirtatious red. Her unparalleled, stunning face became even more enchanting.
“I know you can’t bear to leave me behind. I am, too, but I know Yunian will go.”
These words rendered him unable to refuse.
He was silent for a moment. He looked at her with a smile.
After a long time, he lowered his gaze and gave a faint smile. “Alright, as you wish.”
Then he turned to leave. His footsteps were slow, and his tall figure looked lonely from behind.
Before he crossed the threshold, he turned around and asked softly: “Your Majesty, you…”
Bai Weiwei was puzzled. “En?”
There was a trace of gloom between Feng Yunian’s brows as he fixed his beautiful eyes on her.
Bai Weiwei thought he wanted to say something.
But he swiftly turned around and slowly walked out.
Bai Weiwei acutely felt that something was off.
“Tongzi, Feng Yunian won’t find out I cheated, ba?”
The system choked: You finally realized it, my host.
But it could only go against its conscience. “This, I’m not sure.”
Bai Weiwei: “If the favorability rose then it’s impossible for him to know, ba. Who would watch their partner cheat and increase their favorability. He’s not a do-M.”
System: “He’s not a do-M. I see quite a bit of do-S.”
