The Regent’s Little Emperor (66)
Xie Yunting had not yet seen the substitute on the throne.
He grabbed an arrow and aimed it at the man on the throne.
He was confident in his archery skills, and paid more attention to Chen Jingzhi.
Chen Jingzhi suddenly opened his mouth. “Where did you find such a similar replacement?”
Xie Yunting sneered. “The world is so big. Anything can be found.”
But Chen Jingzhi suddenly took a few steps forward, as if to see who was sitting on the throne.
Xie Yunting was furious. It was a substitute, and this fellow was unwilling to let go.
Any similar person, and Chen Jingzhi would like them.
He was so upset his grip loosened. The arrow, as swift as the wind, shot at the person on the throne.
Chen Jingzhi suddenly yelled, “Stop, Xie Yunting!”
That was when Xie Yunting really looked over, past the flying arrows, at the person sitting on the throne.
The golden yellow of the palace was dazzling.
She sat upright on the throne, dressed in the golden dragon robe, her crown shaking softly. Her face was delicate and beautiful, the expression on her face indifferent and firm.
This was clearly the real master.
Xie Yunting felt his heart shatter and his brain burst with a loud crash. He screamed, “Get out of the way!”
The horse also rushed in, and he madly chased after the arrow he shot.
Hurry, hurry up…
He leaned over and desperately reached for the tail of the arrow.
But it was too late. The arrow pierced through her chest, penetrating her spine.
Xie Yunting tumbled off his horse and rushed up the stairs leading to the throne.
Bai Weiwei fell from the throne into Xie Yunting’s arms.
Xie Yunting’s heart and soul were torn apart. He held her, not daring to pull out the arrow, but the blood wouldn’t stop flowing, and it oozed through her clothes. It was a horrifying sight.
His face was full of despair. “How did you get out? I shouldn’t have let you go. Should have locked it, I should have locked it.”
Bai Weiwei smiled, weak but relieved. She opened her mouth but spat out blood.
Her internal organs were shattered, and blood flowed from her throat.
It was hard to bear, but it didn’t hurt.
Xie Yunting reached out and shakily touched the blood on her lips. “Why do you hate me, that much? Do you hate me this much? You would rather die than stay with me?”
Bai Weiwei’s face was pale, and her words gushed out with the blood. “Don’t hate, never hate…”
Xie Yunting paused and blankly stared.
Her smile was still bright and beautiful, and her eyes were pure and clear.
“You are the one I admire the most…”
These words were like the winter’s red plum blossoms, and also like flowers of the spring breeze.
So beautiful they made his tears fall uncontrollably.
【Ding. The male lead’s favorability has increased to 98.】
Xie Yunting’s voice was hoarse. The light in his eyes dim as though close to death. His face was wet with tears. “You admire me so much, why don’t you love me? Even if you lie and cheat me, I can give you my life.”
She had been so stingy with giving him even half a point of favor.
He was like the sun in the sky1. He had the power to overturn the world. He was outstanding in everything.
What was wrong with him.
Bai Weiwei’s face and mouth were bloody. She faltered as she reached for his hand.
“I love you.”
Her voice lowered, and she said with an absentminded smile.
XIe Yunting thought that his ears were ringing, and he actually hallucinated.
But he thought again. Was this her taking pity?
Cheating him now, being so cruel.
But even if he told himself tens of thousands of times that it was fake, his heart still throbbed.
She loved him.
【Ding. The male lead’s favorability has reached 100, mission complete. The male lead thought you liked him five times, quota used up. Exempted from punishment due to task completion.】
【Ding. Countdown 2 minutes. Host prepare to leave the plane.】
Bai Weiwei felt the sensation of her life force draining.
She tried to keep her chin up. “If I didn’t love you, how could I use my life to urge you to take the throne and become emperor? You already have no way to retreat. Taking over the palace, killing Zhao Wang, if you don’t become emperor you can only wait to die.”
What minister in power could be the sun in the sky for a lifetime?
Only the emperor could.
Bai Weiwei sighed. “I can’t love you, Xie Yunting.”
