The teenager kept looking outside the window until he heard the little girl’s voice. When he turned around and saw Ying Bao, his eyes were brimming with vitality again.
“Uncle Prince, are you okay?” Ying Bao asked as she ran towards Huangpu Xuanye and hugged his legs.
She had been worrying about Huangpu Xuanye and was praying for him to get better.
“I’m good,” Huangpu Xuanye replied as he lowered his head and patted the little girl’s head. “How are you?”
“No, I’m not good!” Ying Bao shook her head. “I was worried about you! I even ate one less bowl of rice yesterday because of that!”
“Don’t worry, I’m really fine.” Huangpu Xuanye smiled as he tried to hide his laugh.
“Then let’s go to the garden! My grandpa has a lovely garden at his home! I haven’t even played there yet!”
Ying Bao pulled Huangpu Xuanye’s hand, trying to drag him out from the gloomy room and into the sunlight.
Huangpu Xuanye had not planned to leave; he did not want to meet with anyone. But there was no way he could decline the little girl’s offer.
The sun outside was bright, so bright that it hurt his eyes slightly.
Because he had been hiding inside the dark and gloomy room for too long, the sudden brightness made him dizzy.
He waited until he recovered and walked out the gate.
“Come on! Let’s play in the garden!” the little girl in the blue dress shouted as she ran towards the Rose Garden.
“Hey! Don’t run too fast or you’ll fall!” Jing Xi shouted as she saw Ying Bao running really fast.
But just as she finished responding to her mother, Ying Bao fell to the ground.
Both Jing Xi and Huo Yunshen saw it and ran towards Ying Bao. But Huangpu Xuanye was closer to Ying Bao than them and reached her first.
“Are you okay? Are you hurt anywhere?”
Huangpu Xuanye offered his hand and pulled Ying Bao up before helping her wipe off the dust on her dress.
“No, I’m okay!”
Ying Bao shook her head.
“What do you want to play?”
“How about hide and seek?” Ying Bao suggested and ran away. “I”ll hide first, and Uncle Prince has to come find me. You’ll have to close your eyes and count to ten, okay?”
The teenager proceeded to play with the little girl in the garden.
Jing Xi couldn’t help but sigh at the lonely and depressed expression Huangpu Xuanye was giving.
“How’s the Northern Kingdom?”
“Most of the power has fallen into the queen’s hands. Her identity has been exposed as well,” Helian Qingyu said.
“Who is she?”
Jing Xi still remembered that she had only seen the photo of the queen in her veil from Huo Erqi.
No one knew what the queen actually looked like, and it made Jing Xi curious.
“You might not know her. Here’s her picture.”
Helian Qingyu handed her the newspaper with the queen’s photo on it. Jing Xi looked at it and couldn’t help but voice her surprise.
“You know who she is?”
