“Know… know what?” Ji Xiuran stated with a dry smile, “While you were gone from the Independent State, it turns out you went to China… That place is rather nice… I was afraid you would get lonely, so I brought some of your friends from China here. You aren’t angry, right?”
Ye Wanwan was startled.
Could it be that Ji Xiuran didn’t investigate my identity but simply investigated the places I went and the people I befriended?
Then Emperor Ji brought the five-member mercenary group and Liuying to the Independent State just to fend off my boredom…? What kind of mad logic is this?
Of course, Ye Wanwan wasn’t dumb. Since Emperor Ji didn’t raise doubts about her identity, Ye Wanwan wouldn’t seek trouble for no reason or say anything that might expose herself.
“Oh right…” Emperor Ji looked at Ye Wanwan. “Are you close to the Si family of China?”
“Eh… we’re alright. I had some interactions with the Si family in China…”
“Oh? Only some interactions?” Emperor Ji’s lips turned up with an inexplicable smile.
“Yes…” Ye Wanwan nodded with conviction.
“That’s fine. I was just asking… I heard that the patriarch of the Si family disappeared… He should be your friend, right? How about I help you look for him?”
“Huh… Look for him?” Out of fear, sweat drenched Ye Wanwan.
Things really couldn’t be explained if he was found!
“No need… I’ve greatly troubled you already… I can find him myself.” Ye Wanwan forced herself to be calm and smiled placidly.
“I was just joking with you.” Ji Xiuran smiled faintly. “The Fearless Alliance has changed in the years you were gone. There are a lot of side factions. You should be able to use the people I brought to the Independent State. You should feel more at ease with a few confidants by your side.”
“Thank you so much…” Ye Wanwan said.
Everything would be fine as long as Emperor Ji didn’t doubt her identity…
“You seem to be quite nervous every time you see me.” Ji Xiuran walked closer to Ye Wanwan. The smile that lingered on his lips made her feel like a spring breeze had washed over her.
However, Ye Wanwan wasn’t in the mood to admire this handsome man’s good looks. How could she not be nervous? She was pretending to be Emperor Ji’s fiancée. Everything would go to hell if she made any mistakes…
“I’m your fiancée. Why would I be nervous around you?” Ye Wanwan steadied her mind and asked with a chuckle as she met Ji Xiuran’s long and narrow, witty eyes.
“Oh… is that so?” Ji Xiuran said.
“Why else?” Ye Wanwan feigned calmness.
“Hm… You’re right.” Ji Xiuran nodded. “Then I think it’s about time for us to get married. What do you think?”
Why can’t we keep being an engaged couple?! Why the heck are we getting married?!
“I haven’t been back in the Independent State for that long… You should know about the situation with the Fearless Alliance. There’s a lot of business that requires my attention. I also need to stabilize the Fearless Alliance’s internal affairs. Let’s postpone it…” Ye Wanwan said placidly after pretending to think for a moment.
Ji Xiuran chuckled lightly. “I was merely joking with you. I also don’t plan on getting married.”
Ye Wanwan’s eyes brightened.
Ji Xiuran doesn’t plan on getting married?!
This is freaking wonderful!!!
If that’s true, then I can act more realistically!
“What did you say?!” Ye Wanwan’s face chilled instantly. “You don’t plan on getting married? What do you mean? We’re engaged. Do you plan to keep being my fiancé? For your whole life?”
If it’s Ji Xiuran himself who doesn’t want to get married, it has nothing to do with me~
