Chapter 848: You Still Have To Put On A Full Show
Su Wan and Jiang Xuecheng left with Lightning. The staff saw that the atmosphere was not right and quietly retreated to the side.
Only Diya and Fiennes were left on the field.
Diya followed Fiennes’ gaze and found that he was looking at Su Wan and Jiang Xuecheng who had left hand in hand.
But Fiennes’ expression was very ugly.
Diya could not help but feel sorry for him.
When she saw Bailu galloping over on the horse race track, even if the person riding Bailu was her brother who was usually closest to her, she could not help but feel afraid.
Therefore, looking at it this way, Su Wan and the Emperor must be in true love.
Diya had almost never seen Fiennes looking so gloomy. She raised her head and tugged at Fiennes’ sleeve in fear.
“Brother, it’s all my fault. Don’t be angry with me, alright…”
Diya’s voice was soft, with a hint of flattery.
As she did not receive Fiennes’ response, Diya felt even more upset, but she did not know what to do.
If she were to do it again and see Fiennes riding over blindfolded, she would probably still avoid him!
She could not be that strong, she would still be afraid.
Just as Diya was feeling anxious, Fiennes suddenly lowered his head and asked her a question.
“Diya, didn’t His Highness and Miss Su mention that they will leave within a week? They are going to Planet Aquamarine for an inspection?”
His voice was low and calm, and there was a hint of authority that was not present in his usual voice. It was as if he was suppressing something, making it hard for people to breathe.
Hearing that, Diya was stunned. She did not understand why her brother suddenly brought up this matter.
Over the past month, there had been frequent natural disasters on Planet Aquamarine. That planet was originally a new immigrant planet that was extremely exhausted. It should not be strange for the High Priest to send His Highness to inspect and pacify it, right?
“Yes, His Highness just mentioned this matter… What is it, brother?”
Diya glanced at Fiennes in bafflement. Her voice was filled with confusion.
Fiennes, on the other hand, merely smiled without saying a word. He raised his eyes to look at the two figures that were gradually moving further and further away. His hands, which were hidden under his sleeves, were clenched tightly in silence.
From the looks of it, only the high priest will be keeping watch over the God’s Palace in the coming few days.
Others might not be able to tell, but Fiennes was the only one who understood the most. The high priest had clearly been injured when she returned from her trip. It was likely that she was only left with a few percent of her abilities?
Now that the emperor was about to leave, if he wanted to make a move, that would be the best opportunity.
The plan he had been planning for a long time lacked such an opportunity!
What happened today made Fiennes realize once again how painful it was to be under someone!
He did not want a position below one person and above ten thousand people. Instead, he wanted to be the one who controlled everything and could do whatever he wanted!
When Diya saw the cold smile on Fiennes’ face, she inexplicably shivered.
Why did she feel that her brother had become so strange recently…
He was not like the past him.
Her brother had never lost his temper with her in the past.
Diya pursed her lips and suddenly remembered something.
“Brother, have you found the male waiter that I asked you to find earlier?”
He was about 1.8 meters tall and had green eyes. Even if his appearance was ordinary, it should still be easy to find him, right?
Hearing that, Fiennes gave Diya an extremely cold and stern look.
“Diya, you must have seen wrongly. At that time, there wasn’t a single waiter in the entire banquet who had green eyes. Perhaps you remembered wrongly in your fear?”
Diya frowned slightly and suddenly felt a little flustered.
Could it really be that she had seen wrongly?
However, thinking back, how could she remember wrongly with such a pair of eye-catching emerald eyes?
On the other side, Su Wan and Jiang Xuecheng had already walked out of the racecourse.
Su Wan saw Jiang Xuecheng holding Lightning’s reins with one hand. The intimate manner of the man and the horse made her feel envious and jealous.
“Didn’t you say you were going to take me on a horse ride? But you are the one holding Lightning all the way, and Lightning didn’t even let me touch it!”
Hearing Su Wan’s complaint, a knowing smile appeared on Jiang Xuecheng’s lips.
Jiang Xuecheng reached out his hand and suddenly knocked Su Wan on the head.
“Wan Wan, why do you think I was so confident when I was racing just now? I was absolutely sure that I could do it flawlessly.”
Su Wan was stunned when she heard that. She turned her head to look at Lightning, who had been stubbornly ignoring her, and suddenly understood something.
“You mean –”
Su Wan tentatively reached out her hand, wanting to touch Lightning’s black satin-like mane.
As expected, Lightning still abruptly raised its hooves and instantly took a step back.
Could it be that it was not because Lightning especially did not like her closeness, but because there was something on her that Lightning did not like?
When Jiang Xuecheng saw Su Wan’s enlightened eyes, he immediately raised his eyebrows and reached out to stroke Su Wan’s bangs.
“Wan Wan, it seems that you have thought of it as well. You are not too stupid.”
So after all this fuss, Jiang Xuecheng was cheating?
Su Wan glanced at Jiang Xuecheng speechlessly.
“Then why didn’t you tell me earlier? Aren’t you afraid that I would suddenly run away like Diya?”
When Jiang Xuecheng heard Su Wan’s complaint, gentleness flashed across his cold eyes.
“Why should I be afraid? No matter what, I won’t bet your life. It’s normal for you to hide.”
When Su Wan heard this, a trace of warmth flashed across her heart. Just now, Fiennes had that expression because Diya had run away at the last minute. Just thinking about it made Su Wan feel incredulous.
When Jiang Xuecheng saw Su Wan’s brows relax, the smile on his lips deepened.
“But you still have to put on a full show. If I told you, you definitely wouldn’t be able to show that kind of panic.”
The deep male voice sounded in her ears with a hint of a smile. It was obvious that Jiang Xuecheng was in an extremely good mood.
Su Wan pursed her lips. What a nice way to put it!
However, at that time, she was so busy being infatuated with Jiang Xuecheng’s face that she did not even think about hiding.
She was really big-hearted.
Su Wan lightly punched Jiang Xuecheng’s arm and rolled her eyes at him.
“Then what did you do to my body? Quickly get rid of that thing on my body. You promised to take me on a horse ride. Don’t go back on your word!”
Jiang Xuecheng smiled when he heard that and held Su Wan’s hand.
“Wan Wan, go and change your clothes. The main thing is that I sprayed something on your clothes. Lightning hates that smell the most.”
So it was like that?
No wonder Lightning never liked her getting close to it.
Su Wan went back to the changing room to change her clothes. When she came out, she saw Jiang Xuecheng riding over on his horse. His features were as delicate as a painting under the sunlight.
Jiang Xuecheng reached out and pulled Su Wan onto the horse’s back.
The warm wind blew gently. Su Wan had never ridden a horse with others before. However, in the arms of Jiang Xuecheng, she felt an unexpected peace of mind.
The horse galloped quickly, and the surrounding pavilions and flowers and trees flew past.
Su Wan could not help but open her arms and close her eyes to listen to the sound of the wind whistling past her ears!
This feeling felt like she was embracing the entire world!
