Suddenly, a helpless voice came out from behind. After turning around, they saw a figure dressed in pink quickly striding in, his beautiful face carrying grief.
He hadn’t done anything yet, right? Why was this girl being so heartless today?
“Fourth Prince, my place here is too small to hold all your grandeur.”
Gu Ruoyun’s face held a cold expression: “Furthermore, Fourth Prince, you don’t have the right to direct my life. If not for the fact that you’re my brother’s friend, I would have chased you out by now for doing so!”
“Xiao Yun’er, before you treat me so ruthlessly, you should at least let me know why, right?”
Zuo Shangchen felt aggrieved. He had been thinking for a long time, but he still didn’t know what he had done wrong.
Gu Ruoyun sneered: “Zuo Shangchen, you came to my territory and tried to tell my people to leave my side? You are just my brother’s friend. What right do you have to interfere with my business?”
Hearing this, Zuo Shangchen gaped in surprise, before smiling helplessly.
“Xiao Yun’er, you must have mistaken my meaning. I spent three years trying to check this man’s identity, but I still couldn’t find anything. I suspect that he might have some sort of motive for coming to your side. I’m doing this for your own good. Don’t tell me that you think that I would try to hurt you?”
Zuo Shangchen had indeed been considering her safety, but…
“Zuo Shangchen, I understand that you’re worried for my safety, but I believe in Qianbei Ye. He absolutely won’t hurt me!”
Even she didn’t know why she trusted him so much.
In the past, she had trusted Lu Chen in the past, but was unable to continue blindly trusting him when he had pointed a sword at her. However, right now, she had absolute trust in Qianbei Ye and Zixie. Even if they pointed a sword at her heart at this moment, she believed that they would never hurt her.
The trust Gu Ruoyun had for them was unlike the trust she had had for Lu Chen. It wasn’t built from flowery words or from spending time together, but from the bottom of her heart.
Even if they had only known each other for three years!
Zuo Shangchen narrowed his eyes slightly, and his almond-shaped eyes cast a serious, measuring gaze towards Qianbei Ye.
He really didn’t know why Xiao Yun’er wanted to trust this man so deeply, especially since he was someone without an identity…
Suddenly, that man’s eyes turned to meet Zuo Shangchen’s gaze; those blood-red pupils made Zuo Shangchen’s heart sink, making him feel as if a pair of hands had wrapped around his heart, making it hard to breathe.
This man was very strong! This man’s strength and power was hidden too deeply and went far beyond what Zuo Shangchen could detect.
Zuo Shangchen couldn’t understand why this man would stand by Gu Ruoyun’s side and his purpose for doing so.
Furthermore, only someone whose hands were stained with blood would be able to give off such a bloody aura. Despite this, that man would only show Gu Ruoyun the appearance of a little wife being bullied; he would try to act pitiful and cute, leaving no trace at all of the aura a strong person would have.
“Fourth Prince, I hope that you won’t say anything like that again. Otherwise, I won’t treat you with courtesy, even if we were friends!” Gu Ruoyun said calmly, while glancing at Zuo Shangchen.
She was overprotective by nature, and Qianbei Ye was one of her people. She absolutely would not let anyone bully him!
“Xiao Yun’er, you’re so biased,” Zuo Shangchen pouted, his eyes filled with grievances, “You’re making me jealous, I hate how you’re protecting him like that! When are you going to protect me in the same way?”
Gu Ruoyun rolled her eyes at him: “When you die, I’ll be sure to avenge your death.”
