She wondered if someone from the palace was visiting the garden too.
It was then that she noticed a tall figure coming down from the luxurious limousine.
He was the king of the Dragon Kingdom.
Should… should I hide? Jing Xi asked herself, hiding her face behind a kite.
But before she knew what was happening, she could hear footsteps closing in on her until they stopped in front of her.
Huo Yunshen stood before the kite stall and looked at the woman from above.
“Are you not coming back to work in the palace?”
The question made Jing Xi sure that the king was there for her, which shocked her a lot. She couldn’t believe that the king would personally come and invite her back to work.
“My apologies…” Jing Xi said while standing up.
“I don’t want your apologies! What I want is for you to come back to the palace!” Huo Yunshen said as if he was giving out an order.
He thought that with him, the king of the country, personally inviting her face to face was more than enough to bring her back.
But maybe Jing Xi had hit her head. She was still reluctant to go back.
She couldn’t understand why, but she was terrified of the king and would tremble if she were to look him in the eyes.
She knew that if she were to go back and work in that kind of atmosphere, she would go crazy.
“I’m sorry, but I don’t think I want to go back,” Jing Xi said. “I have a great job right now.”
“Job? You mean selling things on the street?” Huo Yunshen asked sarcastically.
“Is that bad or wrong? I’m not committing any crimes, am I?”
“Is that so?” Huo Yunshen smirked and ordered, “From this day onwards, you are to not set up a stall in this country without my approval! Take this store down!”
With his order, his guards stormed towards the stall and took away all the kites.
“Hey! Those are mine!”
Jing Xi wanted to take them back, but she wasn’t strong enough to wrestle all of the highly-trained bodyguards.
“Is this how you work as a king?” Jing Xi then scolded. “We came here to seek asylum, and yet as a king, you rob me of my rights! You are no better than all the robbers out there!”
Tears began to fill Jing Xi’s eyes as she stared at Huo Yunshen angrily.
It was then that she learned that all people with power and money will abuse what they have.
