He was clearly very surprised because he had never seen this girl before.
But not only did she save him, she also knew his name.
Ya Nu seriously looked at Luo Qing Chen. Although she was only wearing a simple pink brocaded dress, with nothing on her other than a simple gray hairpin in her long hair.
She looked so beautiful like this. She had slim brows, unstained cherry red lips, sparkling starry eyes, and a faint scent of orchids that came from her. It was like beauty that was like transient dust.
She gave off an aura that was different from normal people. This was a beauty that could burn.
This was Ya Nu’s first reaction to seeing Luo Qing Chen. He couldn’t describe it, but his heart was filled with shock.
“Eh, eh, eh, eh, eh, eh.”
Luo QIng Chen saw his gestures that seemed like he wanted to ask her what she wanted. There was a cold palace behind him, so she shouldn’t keep going forward.
Otherwise it’ll be dark soon.
“I am a maid sent to the Cold North Palace today.” Luo Qing Chen said with a faint smile, “We’ll meet a lot in the future.”
Ya Nu was stunned by this.
Other than the maids who came to the Cold North Palace to see Du Jiu Sheng, no one had been sent here over all these years.
Watching was different from being sent here. The maids wouldn’t live a life where they couldn’t eat well or have warm clothes for Du Jiu Sheng.
“I am a criminal minister’s daughter and the matters are a bit complicated……” Luo Qing Chen said with a helpless smile, “Just treat it as me being……punished!”
Ya Nu could understand what Luo Qing Chen meant, so after saying “eh, eh’ a few times, he led her to the Cold North Palace.
It wasn’t until the zither rang out that she realized that she was standing outside the door.
Her eyes were a bit red as the memories of the past all came back at the moment.
Ya Nu looked at her with a puzzled look. When he wanted to help her open the gates, Luo Qing Chen pushed them open herself.
Du Jiu Sheng, Du Jiu Sheng, Du Jiu Sheng……
She silently repeated his name three times in her heart. The cold wind blew, trembling her lashes and her heart.
With a ‘ding’ sound, the zither entered its climax. As high as the mountain and as deep as water, a sound that made people fall into it and become nervous.
After a while, the zither sound ended. His slender fingers gently touched the zither as he slowly looked up. His deep eyes looked into her starry eyes, making her unable to breathe.
This youth was like the jade among the crowds.
He was wearing a moon white brocaded robe, looking elegant and handsome. His bottomless deep eyes had a dim glow in them. Elegance and grace was a description of him, but it wasn’t a perfect description.
She had seen this look many times, but it was different each time.
Parting was a pain that she couldn’t stop, but meeting was a time where she feared meeting his eyes.
A thousand years in a single glance, she understood what it meant now.
“Speak?” He spoke first with a hint of doubt in his cold voice.
That was because when he looked at her, there was a strange throbbing in his heart.
Feelings that he never felt spread through his heart and his fingers on the zither trembled slightly.
“I am Luo Qing Chen, I will be a maid in the Cold North Palace from now on.” She put down her bag and walked towards him step by step.
With a cold breeze, the plum blossoms in the yard flew up and landed on her hair and his zither.
She put her hands on the table and leaned in towards him, “I know that you are called Du Jiu Sheng.”
“Also……” She immediately cut him off, “Your future wife will definitely be called Luo Qing Chen.”
