Luo Qing Chen didn’t really understand the meaning of these words, but she felt a bit unsettled.
She was afraid that the one holding her hands would suddenly let go.
During the short walk, neither of them said a thing.
Du Jiu Sheng could sense the uneasiness in her heart and turned to say, “It’s the words of a Jianghu practitioner, there’s no need to put it in your heart.”
“Un……” She gave a slight nod before revealing a smile, “I won’t.”
“Let’s go to the Three in One House to get some food!” Du Jiu Sheng’s right hand patted her head, “We’ll head back to the palace after eating.”
“The Three in One House?” Luo Qing Chen’s eyes lit up, “Is it the most famous Three in One House of Peaceful Ink City?”
In the memories of the previous host, every time there was a birthday or a major celebration in their family, they would go to the Three in One House. It was natural that the chef of the Three in One House was proud.
The imperial kitchens had invited him several times and they had been rejected. The dishes in the Three in One House really was better than other places, even better than some in the palace.
Now when thinking of the days of eating at the Three in One House, they really were far away.
“Alright!” Luo Qing Chen swept away the sadness in her heart and said with a smile, “It has to be a big meal.”
“Alright, you can eat whatever you want.” He narrowed his starry eyes that had a faint pampering look in them.
These days were quite good, it was as if the hatred in his heart was gradually disappearing.
His mother’s grudge, the Xia Country’s grudge, the injustice of the royal family…..
It was as if those things mattered less with her appearance. He was even…..content with the current warmness.
Whenever he saw her smiling face, he had a calm feeling in his heart.
If he could spend his life in the Cold North Palace like this with her, then it would be a beautiful thing.
The Three in One House.
Although it was the afternoon, it was completely filled. It took them a while before they were able to get an empty seat.
“Welcome young master and miss to the Three in One house. We have the most delicious dishes, the most fragrant wine, and the most beautiful singing……”
The waiter gave an enthusiastic introduction. Luo Qing Chen said with a chuckle, “Give me a serving of the large prawns, the fried quail, the braised scallops, the almond tofu, the emerald osmanthus cake, and a pot of your Lion Peak Dragon Well.”
“Will the miss and young master be drinking? Our Three in One House has the famous Cannon Lantern bought from a merchant from the border.”
“Is that so?” Luo Qing Chen pursed her lips and looked at Du Jiu Sheng with an expectant look.
But he shook his head and said, “We won’t be drinking.”
After the waiter left, Luo Qing Chen looked at Du Jiu Sheng with a scrutinizing look, “Why won’t you let me drink?”
Drinking was a joy in life!
“What kind of girl drinks?” Du Jiu Sheng poured a cup of hot water for her, “Drink more water!”
“Humph! Big brother Jiu Sheng really is boring!” Luo Qing Chen crossed her arms and pursed her lips in a proud manner!
“Now you think that I’m boring?” He looked at her and gave a slightly bitter laugh, “The days in the Cold North Palace are much more boring than this.”
Since he had confirmed the thoughts in his heart, he always wanted to keep her by his side.
But he didn’t know if she would be willing to live that poor and boring life with her.
“I……” Luo Qing Chen felt that his tone was a bit cold, so she replied in a bit of a panic, “Big brother Jiu Sheng, I was just saying it casually! You shouldn’t mistake me like this!”
She felt that if there was a feeling that she wasn’t willing, Du Jiu Sheng would let go right away.
She had waited so long just to meet again, a hundred years was already too short, so how could she not be willing to be by his side?
