On the way back, Yuan Xi maintained a cold expression and ignored Luo XiaoLou. He paid more attention to keeping a distance between them at all times. Every time Luo XiaoLou tried to communicate with him, Yuan Xi immediately glared at him with a warning gaze and an expression that if Luo XiaoLou dared to cross him the thunderstorm would definitely erupt.
Luo XiaoLou looked at the person beside him in confusion. He didn’t know what Yuan Xi meant by this. First, he was arrested with great fanfare, then he was taken away when he was about to be sentenced to death, and now he was threatening him with his anger. Even if Yuan Xi was acting in cooperation with the military ministry, there were only the two of them left, so there was nothing to worry about, right?
[What do you think? What’s going on with him?] Luo XiaoLou couldn’t help but complain to 125, who was the only audience when Yuan Xi treated him like a flooding beast.
I don’t know what kind of madness Yuan Xi was going through, but there is no doubt that he has once again ruined my plan to take you away, 125 thought. While, with great sincerity, he replied to Luo XiaoLou, [Maybe, Yuan Xi just doesn’t want to care about you. According to my study of humans, when it comes to marriage and family, couples who have been married for a long time can easily deteriorate or fade in their relationship. Especially men, who are most unreliable on this side. This is quite different from our exotic beast’s lifelong loyalty to one partner, especially if you don’t have young animals. Oh no, the children situation. You’ll have to deal with that. But he’s actually doing pretty well.]
[You call this idiotic behavior a display of affection?] Luo XiaoLou continued to glare at Yuan Xi angrily and suspiciously. [I think it’s a lot more serious than that. Like, like…]
[I see. Maybe this is a prelude to your divorce. He has to make a show of not liking you anymore.] 125 was sparing no effort to stir up trouble, when Yuan Xi suddenly glanced his way. 125 shivered, he didn’t take time to think carefully before he decisively died.
In fact, Yuan Xi just felt that Luo XiaoLou was too quiet, and he began to suspect that this cunning and ferocious exotic beast was brewing some kind of conspiracy. But he didn’t think it mattered. He could stop him with his bare hands.
Yuan Xi casually set his course, and looked at Luo XiaoLou, with his thin, single body and little aura, much less the appearance of having any abilities. The gap between this and his impression of the exotic beast was surprisingly large. Probably the only thing that held up was his appearance. The black soulful eyes, the long eyelashes. His lips looked very soft, the taste of kissing must be very good. God, what was he thinking?
Yuan Xi woefully retracted his gaze with the intention of standing stern. Could it be that his uniqueness lay in the practice of charm? Mn, that must be the case. No wonder this guy was sent to make peace. It was probably his only use.
However, it was quite appropriate…Yuan Xi completely missed how his mind ran off in a weird direction again.
While Luo XiaoLou was worried about 125’s sudden disappearance, they arrived at the royal palace.
The two quickly got off the mecha and stood in the familiar courtyard. Yuan Xi looked at Luo XiaoLou again in disgust, hesitated for two seconds, then put on his white gloves before he reached out and pulled Luo XiaoLou inside.
Luo XiaoLou looked at him, and the corners of his mouth twitched. He hated himself even more for the delight he felt all the way to the bottom of his heart from the contact between them. In truth, he was the one who couldn’t leave Yuan Xi.
Mr. Butler was standing in the lobby, and his eyes lit up when he saw the Prince was dragging him in. Although the Prince Consort was a bit downcast, he was relieved that he greeted him with a decent smile at the right time.
Before Mr. Butler could greet the two men, Yuan Xi gave him a fierce look, threw down a sentence, and took Luo XiaoLou back to his room.
Mr. Butler, who was left alone, continued to smile. He waved his hand and beckoned the maid to send lunch to the Prince’s room, while he himself rushed to the two majesties as fast as he could. He had to report the good news personally.
In the last few days, His Highness Yuan Xi had been a real worry and had been putting on foul faces all day. But the good news was that he was almost back to normal.
As for the Prince Consort being an exotic beast, it wasn’t something they should consider. He just knew that he liked this young man who suited His Highness very well.
Luo XiaoLou finally returned to his familiar room again, his eyes unconsciously showing joy and loss.
Yuan Xi glanced at him mockingly, and secretly added to Luo XiaoLou’s shortcomings: emotional, dependent, he was such an EXOTIC BEAST, going undercover over to the human side, could he even complete the task…
Luo XiaoLou found that after arriving at the room, Yuan Xi stood next to him with a cold face, still without any intention of speaking. Luo XiaoLou shook off the gloved hand, looked around and then went to the bedside table. He took out an electronic book, and wrote on it: We have to talk.
Luo XiaoLou handed it to Yuan Xi after he was done, with a serious expression on his face. Although originally he didn’t intend to find out, since he was back, he should get a clear picture. Even if it really was a problem in the relationship between them, he had to find a way to make up for it.
Yuan Xi immediately sat up straight, raised his chin, and said arrogantly, “What do you want to talk about?” He didn’t think there was anything to talk about. Now the initiative was in his hands. Luo XiaoLou could survive, but also had to rely on him.
Luo XiaoLou looked at Yuan Xi who posed like, in a quarrel I will definitely win. The corners of his mouth twitched again, but he didn’t comment, just took the electronic book and continued to write: My identity was leaked. Now what?
Yuan Xi swept this sentence aside, he didn’t wait for Luo XiaoLou to hand over the electronic book, just said directly, “I don’t want to consider this matter now. I’ll wait for a few days to say.” Why he temporarily changed his mind and brought Luo XiaoLou back, he was a little confused about himself.
But it felt like he had to do it. Well, maybe it was an after effect of that charm, but what did it matter? He could totally take the opportunity to experience married life. That said, all he could remember now was his hatred for EXOTIC BEASTS and couldn’t remember anything at all about his post-marital life.
Luo XiaoLou frowned. After a few days? What did that mean? He couldn’t help but ask: You are behaving like an ostrich. You should think about how to explain this to people. What about our marriage? You brought me back. Today you must also give the military department a reason, right?
Yuan Xi’s eyes shot up. “Why should I give them a reason? It’s just a matter of a few days.”
Luo XiaoLou was so angry that he almost stood up, but he couldn’t make a sound now, and if he stood up he still couldn’t yell, so he only glared at Yuan Xi and wrote quickly: What the hell do you mean?! I’m not out of danger yet!
Yuan Xi grunted. “Of course. I didn’t say I was going to spare you.” Ah, this guy was in a hurry, he really was in love with someone he can’t love, tsk.
Luo XiaoLou just wanted to throw the electronic book at Yuan Xi’s arrogant face. He wrote with red eyes: Are you out of your mind? What about the things you promised me before? You said you loved me and would keep me safe no matter what.
After he wrote this sentence, Luo XiaoLou was angry, but he also couldn’t help but fight a chill. This sentence was too much like 125 watching those dog’s blood dramas and sad heroines’ lines…
The result was that Yuan Xi jumped up faster than Luo XiaoLou. He was so angry that his face was red as he looked at Luo XiaoLou and yelled, “I…I love you? That’s not possible! How could I possibly love an exotic beast? What kind of insane joke are you making now? If you want to go to the court martial, I don’t mind sending you there right now!”
Luo XiaoLou was also furious, and wrote down a few words vigorously: Yuan Xi, do you really want a divorce?
Yuan Xi looked at Luo XiaoLou in shock and anger, but refused to answer the words, only looked at Luo XiaoLou’s reddened eyes sarcastically. “Look at you now. You obviously have many more stupid feelings than I did!”
At this time, hidden in Luo XiaoLou’s pocket, 125 quietly said, […I think, I found the cause of the problem. According to my experience of watching hundreds of dramas, he seems to have amnesia.]
The more Luo XiaouLou looked at Yuan Xi, the more he felt that 125 had a point. However, he still felt his heart was unbearably hard.
After a while, Luo XiaoLou calmed down and wrote a line: Yuan Xi, do you remember what we did in the Grey Hole?
Yuan Xi was still sulking, but that didn’t stop him from looking at Luo XiaoLou’s electronic book. He was puzzled for a moment, then said, “What’s that?”
Luo XiaoLou’s hand spasmed. His heart sank downward, and he was powerless for a while before he finally wrote: Yuan Xi. I don’t know what caused you to lose part of your memory. I can only tell you that we love each other, and although I am exotic beast, I do not want to leave you. I hope you can recover as soon as possible, and of course, I will try to find a way to help you.
Luo XiaoLou finished writing, and looked at Yuan Xi, tired and worried.
Yuan Xi still had a blank-eyed expression, and was making it clear that he didn’t believe what Luo XiaoLou wrote. He was insisting on his own point of view; especially the point that Luo XiaoLou loved him deeply, had used all means, and was dead set on staying.
Luo XiaoLou powerlessly waved his hand, and put down the electronic book. He needed to organize his thoughts, but the rush of anger hurt him. Now he cared about Yuan Xi, and intended to find a way to help Yuan Xi remember later.
Of course, whether he could remember or not was still an open question. When he thought about that, Luo XiaoLou felt even worse.
Luo XiaoLou got up and headed for the bathroom. Yuan Xi stared at him intently from behind. 125 thought this was a good opportunity, so he snuck off to his own little room. He hadn’t changed his clothes in a long time.
Luo XiaoLou turned on the hot water, and was about to undress when he suddenly found that Yuan Xi was standing at the door. He frowned and walked over.
Yuan Xi was faced with Luo XiaoLou’s ‘what are you doing here?’ expression. His eyes wandered for a moment, but soon appeared righteous again. “What are you looking at? Why can’t I come in? Aren’t we a couple? Moreover, if I don’t come in to watch you, what if you run away?”
Faced with a cold and arrogant Yuan Xi, Luo XiaoLou realized, while a headache came on, that this brutal and unreasonable state was really a reversion to the time when they first met. Of course, he now knew Yuan Xi well, and wasn’t afraid of him. However, in the face of this situation, there was just no way. He couldn’t drive Yuan Xi out of the bathroom.
Depressed, Luo XiaoLou ignored Yuan Xi and began to undress, and after he stripped naked, quickly got into the water.
He then looked on, dumbfounded, as Yuan Xi began to react, and at how Yuan Xi was looking down in confusion. Soon, however, he stopped dwelling on it and walked over with some discomfort and undressed as he went. He looked like he was excited to enjoy his conjugal love life.
