Chapter 403: You’re So Worried About The Emperor

Lu Tingchen fell silent.

He had also heard the rumors about the House of Swallow Snow circulating in the martial world.

It was just that he did not expect that someone would hire people from there to kill his sister one day.

This made him extremely furious.

To hire them to kill someone, an individual would not only require abundant financial resources but also connections with the House of Swallow Snow.

Once the House of Swallow Snow accepted a task, they would resolutely complete it even if it meant sacrificing lives.

Their assassins were not terrifying by themselves. What was terrifying was this rule they lived by.

The House of Swallow Snow was considered a fearsome organization in the martial world, but no one knew its exact location.

Who was it that wanted to kill Weiwei?

She had never made enemies, and even if she did, it was only squabbling between women. Nobody would go to the lengths of hiring the House of Swallow Snow to kill her just because of such trivialities, right?

Or could it be that Weiwei was obstructing someone’s path?

Seeing his face full of worry for this matter, Lu Liangwei could not help reassuring him, “Big Bro, don’t think about it too much. Since it has already happened, there’s no use overthinking it. The most I can do is be more careful when going out in the future.”

Lu Tingchen furrowed his brow. His heart ached to see a girl like her react so calmly to such an encounter, but at the same time, he was also a little relieved.

He raised his hand and patted her head. “Alright. From today onward, I’ll stick by your side and protect you.”

Lu Liangwei was startled. “What about your work in the palace?”

“The Emperor won’t be around for some time, so I can ask other people to stand in for me. He won’t blame me even when he comes back. On the contrary, if you lose a single hair on my watch, he’d probably skin me alive.” Lu Tingchen had mixed feelings when he said this.

Before leaving the palace, the Emperor had deliberately sought him out and told him to take extra care of Weiwei.

Weiwei was his sister—he would take care of her even if the Emperor did not tell him to. However, it felt different when the Emperor requested him as Weiwei’s husband.

The Emperor valued Weiwei very much.

Actually, Lu Liangwei knew that he would still protect her even if Long Yang did not tell him to. He clearly wanted to protect her, but he just had to use the Emperor as an excuse.

She said in amusement, “You’re exaggerating, the Emperor wouldn’t do that. You’re his precious subordinate. In fact, you’re probably more important in his heart.”

“Of course I’m important. I’m the Emperor’s future brother-in-law,” Lu Tingchen also made a rare joke.

Lu Liangwei was a little embarrassed and changed the subject, “The Emperor has left the capital for a long time. I wonder when he’ll come back. Do you know, Big Bro?”

“I don’t.” Lu Tingchen shook her head. Seeing her frown, he could not help adding teasingly, “You’re so worried about the Emperor. Don’t tell me you miss him?”

Lu Liangwei blushed. “What nonsense are you spouting? I just asked it off the top of my head. I don’t want to talk to you anymore.” She put down the stuff in her hands and left the small medicinal room.

Seeing this, Lu Tingchen followed her out hurriedly.

As soon as he came out, he saw Chu Jiu standing there on guard. He felt stunned for a moment, then nodded at her.

It was because she protected Weiwei today without letting Weiwei get hurt.

Chu Jiu was taken aback.

She did not expect that he would be nice to her.

Save from when he was in front of Second Miss, this demon was always scowling when facing other people.

She quickly understood the reason for his change in attitude.

It was probably for Second Miss’s sake.

After entering her room, Lu Liangwei said to Lu Tingchen, “Big Bro, you don’t like Chu Jiu, do you?”

Every time her brother saw Chu Jiu, he would always glower. Other people might think that there was beef between them.

“Why should I like her?” Lu Tingchen retorted.
