The Regent’s Little Emperor (26)
As soon as he got on the horse, Bai Weiwei tugged the reins, her eyes sharp. She soared1 as her horse charged towards the cliff.
Everybody rushed over, shouting and screaming to kill them.
Bai Weiwei ignored them, handing over the responsibility of watching their backs to Xie Yunting.
Xie Yunting, holding a long sword with a curved edge, cut down countless arrows.
Xie Yunting’s pupils constricted. Without thinking, he threw the sword in his hand, cleanly piercing the assassin’s heart.
Now he lost his weapon.
They were surrounded by the enemy, with no time to wait for help to arrive.
Xie Yunting lost too much blood and dizzily rested his head on the crook of her shoulder.
He held her waist, and the two tightly pressed together.
Soft and warm, like clouds and satin.
He didn’t want to die alone, still having these kinds of thoughts towards the little emperor.
Like he was possessed.
His voice was weak.
Bai Weiwei was very focused; their lives were on her shoulders. She didn’t have the leisure to pay attention to Xie Yunting’s thoughts.
So she didn’t say anything.
“I didn’t expect the two of us to die together.”
Xie Yunting whispered.
Bai Weiwei finally heard what the man behind her said.
“Were you not listening?!” Bai Weiwei suddenly shouted.
Xie Yunting opened his eyes. Across the cliff was a flat mountain path.
Bai Weiwei leaned forward and pressed the horse’s belly. Her whole body dived forward.
The horse whinnied and sped ahead. It jumped off the cliff.
The wind howled.
And Bai Weiwei’s voice reached his ears.
“The wicked live a thousand years. How could you die so easily?”
The horse leaped off the cliff, narrowly missing the small path.
And Bai Weiwei heard the system notification.
【Host activated the life subsistence guarantee. Deducting five days of life.】
The life subsistence guarantee could be used in all sorts of dangerous situations.
For example, when riding a horse off a cliff, it would ensure survival.
Not only that, but she would be able to jump even more smoothly than others.
The assassins who caught up stopped one after another. A few of them braked too late and directly plunged to the bottom of the cliff.
Xie Yunting was shocked and looked at her with wide eyes.
She actually could steer a horse to jump off a cliff. It not only took the technique, but it also took courage.
When Bai Weiwei noticed his gaze, she couldn’t help but smile.
Nudging the horse, she took Xie Yunting down the mountain path and disappeared into the forest.
Xie Yunting, was shaken by her smile. His eyes trembled, and his heart jumped restlessly.
His black hair covered his eyes. He gripped her waist even more tightly, not letting go, fearing that she would abandon him.
Bai Weiwei nearly suffocated from his strength. “Let go, Tai Fu.”
Xie Yunting’s consciousness was getting farther and farther away. His voice was hoarse and thick. “Won’t let go. If I let go, you’ll run away.”
Bai Weiwei was helpless. “Where can we go, with you holding on so tightly?
She was sarcastic and annoyed.
But he stubbornly believed he heard a trace of ambiguous feelings.
For a lifetime
【Ding. The male lead’s favorability has increased to 40. For 3 seconds, the male lead thought that you liked him. This is the second time. 3 more times and the side quest will be considered a failure.】
Bai Weiwei turned around in a rage, itching to kick Xie Yunting this wretched man, off the horse.
She was so vicious.
Yet he could still delude himself that she liked him.
This was too depraved, ah2.
No wonder it was said old virgins were the hardest to deal with.
