My Princess Has Been Reborn - Chapter 28.2
Chapter 28.2 – I Am Her Fiancée (2)
Lu Qipei didn’t dare to move at all, and blood from all over her body seemed to instantly rush towards her face.
Although this wasn’t the first time Qi Yang kissed her, and that kiss was only on her ear, her cheeks were still hot as if they were burning. At the same time, Qi Yang’s voice fell on her ears, “There’s no one else around, so no one will see it.”
When she walked hand in hand with Qi Yang in the peach blossom forest, Lu Qipei was still in a trance.
It had only been two months since she was reborn. In her previous life, Lu Qipei was never happy that she would one day be together with Qi Yang. Although she had always liked this little princess, and felt that the two of them got along well and harmoniously, it didn’t mean that she was attracted by Qi Yang, who was also a woman.
However, everything seemed to have changed in this new life. Lu Qipei also didn’t know when her feelings changed. But when Qi Yang kissed her that night in her courtyard, she didn’t avoid it, nor did she feel that such a kiss would make her uncomfortable. She only felt shy, but at the same time she was secretly happy. Something had finally broken through the shackles, and could no longer be ignored.
At that time, Lu Qipei understood that her heart had been moved. Then, because Qi Yang accidentally appeared in front of Qi Bo, she had to face the matter about their relationship. She might not have wanted to make it clear so soon, but it was also impossible to deny any longer.
Maybe, this was the best way things could have developed now…
Lu Qipei and Qi Yang walked through the peach blossom forest side by side. Lu Qipei couldn’t stop smiling, and she forgot all about her worries and troubles. For the first time, she discovered that liking someone was such a beautiful thing.
They spent the whole morning walking and chatting. They did not get too clingy with each other because they had a mutual understanding – that was not their style. But still, there was something different about them. It was as if there was an aura covering the two and isolating them from the public. The people visiting the peach blossom forest would look at the two, but no one tried talking to them.
Noon approached; it would obviously be too troublesome to go back to the city to eat, and it would also interrupt their outing. Hence, most people would choose to bring food and find a suitable place under a tree by the river, then spread a cloth and sit on the ground for lunch.
Lu Qipei brought some snacks and tea, and Qi Yang even brought some wine and side dishes in a food box to keep them warm, so the two of them had enough for a full meal. But even though there was no shortage of food, when they tried to find a vacant spot, they found that there were a lot of tourists today and everywhere was occupied.
Well, except for under the peach blossom trees. Although the rain of flowers looked beautiful, but dust and petals would fall on your food whenever the wind blew, so how could you eat?
Lu Qipei and Qi Yang had to look for a vacant spot near the river where the flowers and trees were sparse. Unfortunately, they still couldn’t find a suitable place after walking for a long time. And then, a clear voice was suddenly heard, “Brother Lu, are you here for a walk today?”
The owner of the voice quickly appeared in front of them; it was a young gentleman in elegant clothes.
This young man was Lu Qipei’s colleague in Hanlin Academy, Liu Chen, the number three scholar of the imperial examination. Because those from the capital did not need to go back to their hometown to visit their relatives, he entered Hanlin Academy two months earlier than the number one and number two scholar. Right now he’s working as an editor, following Lu Qipei’s footsteps in getting a cold shoulder at work.
Lu Qipei was not too familiar with him, as he was someone she never dealt with much in her previous life. But he was also a colleague after all, so she responded with a smile, “Yes. The weather is fine today, and it’s rare for us to get a rest day, so I went out for a walk.”
Liu Chen exchanged a few words with her. His eyes stayed on Qi Yang for a while, then he asked, “Brother Lu, this is…?”
Liang State was pretty open, and restrictions between men and women were not strict, so there were always many young men and women who travel together on a good day. Just like in the peach blossom forest today, there were many young men and women who traveled in pairs or with friends, and no one batted an eye. Introducing your partner to a friend was not a big deal.
Lu Qipei felt that she was not that familiar with Liu Chen, so his words seemed a bit over the top, but after thinking about it, she introduced the two of them. Introducing Liu Chen was fine, but when it came to introducing Qi Yang, she was a little embarrassed. “She is my…”
Qi Yang said naturally, “I’m her fiancée.”
Lu Qipei’s heart skipped a bit when she heard that. Although the two of them were married in their previous life, hearing Qi Yang say that still made her happy. The smile at the corner of her lips deepened, and her gaze looking at Qi Yang became more gentle. “Yes, she’s my wife-to-be.”
Liu Chen looked a little surprised and confused. He could not help but look at Qi Yang again, then quickly withdrew his gaze again. Although there weren’t strict restrictions between men and women, staring at someone else’s fiancée was obviously very rude.
Lu Qipei was really unhappy, she stepped forward and half-blocked Qi Yang behind her.
Liu Chen was embarrassed when he saw this. Then, he caught sight of the servants following the two carrying food boxes, and smiled again saying, “There are a lot of people visiting the peach blossom forest today, and all the good spots have been occupied. If Brother Lu doesn’t mind, why don’t you join us?”
