Chapter 205: I’m Here To Follow Up On My Condition
Lu Liangwei could finally breathe freely. She took a step back and pulled herself together. She curtsied at the man in front of her and said calmly, “Your Majesty, what brings you here?”
Long Yang darted a look at her formal gesture and slightly masked the look in his eyes. “I’m here to follow up on my condition.”
Lu Liangwei was taken aback but recovered enough to ask with slight astonishment, “Where do you feel unwell, Your Majesty?”
Long Yang darted another look at her but said nothing.
Lu Liangwei noticed this and hesitated before changing her tone to say, “It’s already late at night. As this is my room, it would not be convenient for Your Majesty to…”
Before she could say the words ‘come in’, Long Yang suddenly turned to walk away.
Lu Liangwei heaved a sigh of relief, but the next moment, she heard her room door opened. Her expression changed as she quickly ran out.
She saw that the man had already strode into the room boldly.
Lu Liangwei wrung her fingers.
Zhu Yu was not on duty tonight. If she knew this would happen, she would have gotten Zhu Yu to be on duty.
She bit her lip.
“I don’t mind it at all,” Long Yang strode widely to the soft bed by the window and sat down.
Lu Liangwei, “…”
Lu Liangwei frowned, looking troubled as she watched the man sitting down on the soft bed.
She was muttering in her heart that he may not mind it, but she did very much.
Even though he was the Emperor, he should not be entering a woman’s room so blatantly, should he?
Lu Liangwei felt gloomy.
However, he was the Emperor. He was someone she could not afford to offend.
She approached him silently and quietly pulled up his sleeve. She continued to stay silent as she felt his pulse.
Long Yang lowered his eyes to watch her.
She did not say a word throughout the process. Her little lips were pursed and it was obvious that Second Miss Lu was not happy.
Long Yang hesitated and frowned. He felt a little frustrated.
He had never cajoled a woman before, much less know how to cajole a little lady.
“Your Majesty, I have checked your pulse and there does not seem to be anything abnormal with your health. Besides, the Frostbite within your body has been completely cleared,” Lu Liangwei pulled her hand back and said crisply.
Long Yang nodded. “I am aware of this.”
Lu Liangwei finally lifted her eyes to look at him. “Since you are aware, why did you…”
Why did you come here for a follow-up? She left it unspoken.
Long Yang pondered for a while before replying, “You were the one who provided the antidote. If there was any condition within me that had been overlooked, it would be a serious hidden illness.”
“You should feel relieved now, Your Majesty. I have checked your pulse all over again. Your health has recovered and there is no chance of you having any hidden illnesses.”
There would also not be any problem for him to have intercourse with his concubines.
Of course, these were thoughts she kept hidden in her heart.
However, she still gave him a meaningful look.
Long Yang did not understand this. “What else do you have to say to me?”
Lu Liangwei shook her head. “Nothing.”
She yawned after that. “It’s already quite late. Your Majesty…”
“Are you still angry about what happened at the banquet just now?” Long Yang spoke up the same time she did.
Lu Liangwei was bewildered. “Angry?”
Long Yang stared at her small face and asked hesitantly, “You weren’t angry?”
This prompted Lu Liangwei’s memory of what had transpired during the banquet. She shook her head. “No.”
A slight curve appeared on Long Yang’s lips as his expression relaxed. “That’s good to know.”
Lu Liangwei paused slightly before asking, “You left the Palace purposely to ask me this question?”
Long Yang was about to nod when a thought crossed his mind and he shook his head instead. “No, I was just asking about it since I’m here. My main reason is to follow up on my condition.”
Lu Liangwei glanced at him. She was not completely convinced with his words.
He was the Emperor of a country. If these were not the reasons for him leaving the Palace at such a late night, what other reason could there be?
