Chapter 386: You’d Better Not Become An Uxorious Man

Lu Tingchen said solemnly, “The Emperor is not in the palace.”

Lu Liangwei’s heart sank slightly at his words. It seemed that the Emperor had really headed off to the frontier.

Lu Tingchen saw that his sister had gone quiet and explained to her in a low voice, “His Majesty went to the frontier in secret, and the Crown Prince has taken over as Prince Regent lately.”

Hearing this, Lu Liangwei did not inquire further because she knew what Long Yang was doing.

However, she thought of something and asked again, “Then did he bring anyone with him?”

Lu Tingchen nodded. “Yes, Chu Yi and Chu Qi went with him.” He probably noticed her concern and added, “Don’t worry, His Majesty has a squad of super capable covert guards. Everything will be alright.”

“I’m not worried.” Lu Liangwei shook her head.

Lu Tingchen sighed. “There’s a saying that girls are born to be married off. That’s so true.”

Hearing this, Lu Liangwei snapped at him, “Am I not nice enough to you? You’d better watch your step, or I won’t make good food for you anymore.”

Lu Tingchen immediately surrendered. “Alright, alright, I spoke carelessly. Are we good?”

Lu Liangwei was not really mad, but she could not help teasing him, “Laugh at me all you can now. When you get married in the future, you’d better not become an uxorious man.”

“Uxorious?” Lu Tingchen frowned.

“The type of man who’s afraid of his wife.” After saying that, Lu Liangwei giggled and ran off quickly.

“Lu Liangwei, I’m going to kick your butt.” Lu Tingchen raced after her and pretended to attack her.

Chu Jiu stood in the shade of the courtyard, watching the siblings playing around not far off. A faint glimmer appeared in her usually cold eyes.

She had heard a lot from Zhu Yu about how close the Heir Apparent and Second Miss were. According to the scene in front of her, Zhu Yu had indeed not exaggerated.

Zhu Yu said that Lu Tingchen had come just to see the Second Miss.

She observed the weather. It was a hot day, and Lu Tingchen had rushed all the way here from the imperial capital. It really showed how much he loved his younger sister.

Lu Tingchen’s arrival had livened up the atmosphere of the entire Lu family holiday home.

During the day, Lu Tingchen would bring Lu Liangwei to collect bird eggs from trees or catch fish in the river. In the evening, he would even take her down the mountain to Plum Field Town.

After a few days, Lu Liangwei had turned a shade darker from all the suntanning.

However, her skin was very fair to begin with, and a slight tan did not affect her beauty at all. It only made her look healthier.

When Zhu Yu saw Lu Liangwei basking in the sun, she jumped with shock and hurriedly pulled her back.

“Miss, what are you doing? You’re going to be married in two months. If you keep standing in the sun, you’ll turn into charcoal.”

Lu Liangwei said with a sigh, “What’s wrong with being a little tan? My skin is too pale.” She wanted to get a honey-colored complexion like Chu Jiu.

Zhu Yu looked at her own hands, instantly feeling a little hurt.

“I, for one, wish to be as fair as you, but why do you want to get tanned? You won’t look good. You’ll look like charcoal.”

Lu Liangwei teased her on purpose. “Charcoal? Like you?”

Zhu Yu stomped her foot. “You’re so mean, Miss. You’re always making fun of me. I can’t do this anymore.” With that, she let out a wail and ran away.

Lu Liangwei laughed heartily.

Lu Tingchen walked over and tugged at her braids. “Why are you bullying Lil Zhu Yu again?”

Lu Liangwei raised an eyebrow and decided to misinterpret his words. “Why do you ask? Are you pitying the little beauty? Do you want me to give her to you as a handmaiden?”

Hearing this, Lu Tingchen immediately smacked her on the head. “What nonsense are you spouting?”

Lu Liangwei said regretfully, “So you don’t want to? I thought you did.”
