Nangong Ba appeared to be smiling happily. “It’s obvious that you love your children.”
“Phantom Fox, I’m hoping that you would be their G.o.dfather, if you are willing.”
Liu Rushuang looked up then, and seemingly caught a glimpse of bitterness on Nangong Ba’s face. She could not help remembering then that the man before her had told her that he loves her wishes to marry her, but she ultimately…
“Am I allowed to, Shuang’er?”
Nangong Ba asked, seemingly surprised—he could not ask for more, as he definitely would not give up on any chance to be closer to Shuang’er.
Liu Rushuang inhaled quietly, her smile becoming brighter just then. She reached out to touch Nangong Ba’s hand over the table then and said sincerely, “Have you forgotten the few thousand years we spent together at Cang Ling Academy? You’re always my best friend no matter how much time has pa.s.sed… you are my children’s G.o.dfather already!”
Nangong Ba’s melancholic presence eased considerably as he clearly felt the warmth from the back of his hand, and smiled faintly, “Indeed, I’ll definitely be your children’s G.o.dfather. Don’t you regret it later.”
Liu Rushuang extended a long and thin finger to poke him between his brows, just as she usually did back at the Celestial Realm.
“You seemed to grow a little in that respect.”
“Oh, can’t you hold back a little, Fire Phoenix?”
Nangong Ba furrowed his long, perfect brows at Liu Rushuang in dissatisfaction.
Liu Rushuang laughed out loud. “That look on your face is exactly like how it was in the past.”
Nangong Ba hence picked up a raw-green piece of pastry and stuffed it into her wide-open mouth.
She continued to laugh nonetheless, though her laughter was muted considerably.
“Stop laughing. Why can’t you change that mischievous side of yours? By the way, why are you here at Qinghe City? Nan Li Kingdom is just south of here, or perhaps you were heading there?”
Liu Rushuang swallowed the pastry and stopped laughing. Her gaze darkened unnoticeably, but she paused for a moment before smiling, “It’s a little boring to stay at the palace all the time, which is why I’m out and about to take a breather.”
“Just the two of you?” Nangong Ba asked.
Liu Rushuang slid a glance at Little White Flower, who was beaming as she eat and replied, “Yes, it’s just the two of us.”
“Then would you mind having one more tag along, Shuang’er?” Nangong Ba asked with a hopeful look.
Liu Rushuang poked him firmly between the brows again, raising a brow as she said, “Having someone who has riches that could match kingdoms follow us? I can’t ask for more.”
Nangong Ba stroked the spot she hit, faint anger showing in his eyes.
Why had she poked him again?
Liu Rushuang simply pretended that she did not notice. She picked up a bottle of wine, only for Nangong Ba to stop her.
“You can’t do that, Shuang’er!”
Sighing inwardly, Liu Rushuang put the bottle down—even if her body prevented her from ever getting drunk, she should not be drinking after getting pregnant.
“I intend to visit Nan Li Kingdom after this meal, Nangong Ba. It has been some time since I’ve been there.”
“Alright. I’ll go with you.”
“By the way, where has Jin Yuyao been? I remember that she likes you a lot.”
“Would you believe me if I told you that I chased her away?”
“Shuang’er, you know that there’s no good outcome to relationships between humans and celestials. It would be better to have her give up early on.”
“Yes, but do you like her?”
“In my perspective, she pales in comparison to you.” Nangong Ba answered after a brief pause.
As the air in the room turned awkward, Little White Flower suddenly got off her chair and came between Liu Rushuang and Nangongba. Reaching out to pull their hands together, she grinned. “You should stick with mister governor, milady! I think he is much better than His Majesty!”
