Long Yang heard her waking up quite some time ago. When he heard her speak, he lifted his gaze from his book and looked at her with a smile. “I’ve been here for quite a while.”
Lu Liangwei sat down next to him and said in a casual tone, “Why didn’t you wake me up, Your Majesty?”
“You were sleeping so soundly, I couldn’t bear to wake you up.” Long Yang’s deep, soulful eyes glanced at her.
He reached out to pick up the cup of tea next to him and placed it in her hands. “You’ve just woken up. Have some hot tea and moisten your throat.”
“Thank you, Your Majesty.” Lu Liangwei accepted the cup and thanked him lightly. She began to slowly sip the tea.
Long Yang could not help sighing. “Do you need to be so overly polite with me?”
Lu Liangwei placed the cup of tea down and looked at him in astonishment. “I wasn’t being overly polite.”
A small smile appeared on Long Yang’s lips as he stood up and held her hand, pulling her toward the table. “Let’s eat.”
It was only then that Lu Liangwei noticed the table filled with dishes.
“Why didn’t Your Majesty eat first?”
“I wanted to wait for you.” Long Yang pressed down on her shoulders and made her sit down.
He moved and took his seat opposite her. “I figured that you would want to get Zhao Qian to serve the meal once you woke up. The dishes are still hot. Have them before they get cold.”
Lu Liangwei eyed the food that was still smoking and felt touched that His Majesty was being so considerate.
She picked up her chopsticks and was about to pluck some food when she remembered something. She stopped what she was doing and lifted her eyes to look at the man opposite her.
His eyes were lowered as he ate, each movement looked classy and elegant.
Her gaze fell upon his face. When she confirmed that his expression looked normal and there was no sign of anything strange, she felt slightly relieved.
She had sensed that he was feeling a little upset this morning in the carriage, but he did not explain the reason to her.
She paused and began picking the rice in her bowl. She asked softly, “Why did you allow the Crown Prince to wait at the city gates and escort me back to the Palace?”
Long Yang stopped whatever he was doing and said, “I wanted to wait for you, but there was something that required me to settle in the Palace. The Crown Prince happened to volunteer himself, so I agreed to it.”
Lu Liangwei lifted her eyes to glance at him. Somehow, she felt the situation was not as simple as she thought.
Judging by his previous actions, he would never have agreed for Long Chi to wait for her even if he had to return to the Palace to settle work.
What was wrong with him today?
She suppressed the doubts in her mind and frowned as she said honestly, “I don’t like traveling with the Crown Prince. Please don’t do anything like this again in the future, Your Majesty.”
A smile flashed in Long Yang’s eyes when he heard this. He filled a bowl of soup for her. “Alright. I understand.”
Lu Liangwei glanced at him. She could acutely sense that His Majesty was in a good mood.
Also, now that he had made this promise to her, she was suddenly feeling light-hearted as well.
She really did not enjoy the sight of that dog of a Crown Prince moving about in front of her. Looking at him any more than necessary was a waste of energy.
Zhu Yu brought some servants in to clear the dishes from the table after they were done with their meal. Next, she led the servants toward the bathroom to prepare hot water before getting everyone to leave.
Lu Liangwei had taken a nap in the afternoon and did not feel sleepy now. As the weather was fine, she said to Long Yang, “Your Majesty, let’s go out to take a walk and digest our meal.”
Long Yang set down the book in his hands. “Alright.”
Both of them left the bedchamber one after the other, and headed for a walk in the courtyard.
It was now autumn and the night was a little chilly. Lu Liangwei was unable to stifle a sneeze.
When Long Yang heard her sneeze, he quickly grabbed her hand and found that it was a little cold. He pulled her into his arms. “Do you feel a little better now?”
Lu Liangwei nodded. “Much better.”
Long Yang gave this some thought and said gently, “It’s cold at night and we don’t want you to catch the flu. We should return to the room.”
