“I’m sorry. I don’t think I can stand the smell of the meat,” Jing Xi said.
“Give them to me then,” Huo Yunshen said as he pushed his bowl to Jing Xi.
Jing Xi hesitated for a while before moving the meat in her bowl to Huo Yunshen’s. At the same time, Huo Yunshen gave all his vegetables to Jing Xi.
Jing Xi was a little surprised and raised her head to look at Huo Yunshen, only to find the man had already gone back to eating.
Jing Xi appreciated the gentle gesture from the king. She thought that he could’ve been a really lovely person if not for his temper.
The man suddenly raised his head and looked at Jing Xi. Jing Xi quickly turned away as if she was being caught for spying on him.
They ate their bowls of noodles quietly. Huo Yunshen quickly finished his bowl, but Jing Xi could only finish half of hers.
Huo Yunshen noticed it, and he pulled her bowl to himself and finished it for her.
Jing Xi was so shocked that she almost turned to stone. She could not believe that the king was actually finishing her leftovers.
The king just seemed weirder and weirder lately to Jing Xi. It was as if he was not a king to her anymore.
Jing Xi waited until Huo Yunshen finished the food and cleaned the table.
“Jing Xiaoxi, come to my room later,” Huo Yunshen ordered as Jing Xi left.

A piece of soft music could be heard inside Huo Yunshen’s room. Jing Xi could even smell hints of a lavender candle in the room too.
The atmosphere was romantic.
The king’s request to her was simple. He wanted her to read him a book.
Jing Xi opened the book and started to read.
Even though Jing Xi’s voice had changed, Huo Yunshen was still enchanted by it.
After a couple of dozens of minutes into reading, Jing Xi began to feel sleepy.
She started to let out small yawns from time to time. But since the king did not say she could stop, she continued reading.
Yet, she could not win against her sleepiness in the end and fell asleep by the bedside.
The reason for Huo Yunshen playing soft music and lighting the candle was so Jing Xi could get some good rest.
He then carried Jing Xi to the bed carefully and took her shoes off.
Huo Yunshen looked at his wife lying on the bed, and he felt excellent. He touched the scar on her face gently and the sight of it still hurt him.
He still blamed himself for everything that had happened to Jing Xi.
