Chapter 626: A Great Spectacle

Long Yang’s heart swayed and he almost lost control.

It was lucky that he had always practiced self-restraint. Even so, he still helped himself to taking as much advantage of Lu Liangwei as possible before finally releasing her.

He bit her earlobe and whispered huskily, “I’ll let you off, for now.”

Lu Liangwei was pretty ticklish, and she moved away from him instinctively. Her face burned while her ears went red as she laid in his arms, staying silent all the while.

She had probably asked for it when the chaotic situation happened just now.

She had overestimated His Majesty’s self-restraint and discipline.

Lu Liangwei tried calming down her jumpy nerves as her fingers caressed the delicate embroidery on Long Yang’s sleeves. She asked softly, “Your Majesty, you’ve already punished me, but I still have no idea what wrong I’ve done to anger you. Can you tell me now?”

Long Yang paused at her asking him the question so formally. He lowered his eyes, only to meet the girl’s calm and composed eyes. The unhappiness he had felt suddenly had no way of manifesting itself in the open.

He coughed lightly and caressed her hair. He replied gently, “I wasn’t upset.”

Lu Liangwei raised an eyebrow. “You were clearly upset.”

“I wasn’t. You’re not allowed to overthink this.” Long Yang tousled her hair and pressed her into his arms.

Lu Liangwei did not struggle. Her petite face leaned against his chest, feeling his stable heartbeat.

She was aware that His Majesty had been upset just now, but she had yet to figure out where his anger was coming from.

He had always been someone who was difficult to fathom. If he decided not to let her know something, there was really nothing she could do about it.

However, she was now married to him and there was a lifetime ahead for them to be together. If he kept this habit of being upset without reason, and insisted on not talking about it with her, it would affect the relationship between husband and wife down the road.

His Majesty had once said that he would have her as the only woman in his life, but no matter how grand a promise is made, it might not be able to withstand the challenges of life.

If His Majesty was upset about her for something, it meant that he was unhappy with her. If he refused to voice it out, small issues would eventually snowball into big problems. If she had crossed the line with him again the next time, the situation might turn into one that could not be salvaged.

At the thought of this, she decided not to drop the issue, and instead lifted her small face to look at him from within his arms.

“Your Majesty, you’re my husband,” she said in a serious tone.

Her sudden words softened Long Yang’s heart. The hand he had placed on her back now pulled her tighter into his embrace. “Yes, I am.”

“Since we’re husband and wife, we should be honest with each other. Your Majesty is upset with me, so you should let me know the reason. This way, I won’t commit the same mistake next time.”

Long Yang was slightly exasperated. “I’ve already told you I wasn’t upset. Why won’t you believe me?”

Lu Liangwei darted a look at him when she heard this. She moved away from his lap wordlessly and sat to the side.

Long Yang frowned and grabbed her hand. He was about to say something when Zhao Qian reported from outside the carriage, “Your Majesty, Your Highness, we’ve arrived at the city gates.”

Long Yang did not move. He turned his gaze toward Li Liangwei and was about to say something when she suddenly stood up and left the carriage first.

Long Yang’s frown turned tighter, but there was nothing he could do. He decided that he would talk this out with her in detail after they returned.

In preparation for the Emperor’s arrival, the area within two li had been cleared out. The imperial guards stood vigilantly, guarding every entrance and exit.

Everyone knelt when they saw the Emperor and Empress getting out of the carriage.

Long Yang held Lu Liangwei’s hand and they walked up to the city gates.

Beyond the gates, the troops and their generals were prepared to leave for their conquest.

The somber atmosphere was interrupted by a minor commotion when everyone saw the Emperor and Empress appear. However, these were well-trained men who quickly suppressed their excitement as they all knelt, one by one.

“Long live Your Majesty! Long live Your Highness!” The unified voices trembled heaven and earth.

Lu Liangwei stood by Long Yang’s side as she watched the soldiers and generals below her. They were crowded so closely together that they seemed like one gigantic dark patch below. Lu Liangwei felt somewhat overwhelmed.

Such a scene could only be seen on the television screen in her past life. She had never thought that she would one day have the opportunity to experience this for real.

It was the first time she witnessed such grandeur in real life, and she could not help but be in awe.

What a great spectacle!
