That night, a pair of teenagers sat against the wall in front of the dancing flames. Their beautiful faces glowed in the warm light.
They looked as pretty as a picture. All was harmonious and peaceful and one could almost see pink bubbles in the air.
Warmed up by the fire, Feng Wu began to doze off.
She nodded like a chicken pecking at grain.
Seeing this, Jun Linyuan shook his head and gently pressed her head to his shoulder as he mumbled, “Troublesome woman.”
The girl had to be asleep. Otherwise, she would have jumped to her feet at the retort, protesting his comment.
At the thought of the girl yelling at him with her hands on her waist, Jun Linyuan shook his head with a wry smile.
He was baffled when he saw his reflection in the ice.
He was grinning like a goofball.
Jun Linyuan, the person capable of shaking the empire with his anger, was smiling at the girl like a fool.
What was more, he could think of nothing but the girl.
He was obsessed with her smile, her voice, her movements, her… everything.
The unusual feeling was both intoxicating and dangerous.
Turning his head, Jun Linyuan saw how her eyelashes cast shadows on her face. His eyes flickered.
The girl gave him insomnia last night after sneaking into his room to kiss him in the middle of the night.
Tonight, with her head on his shoulder, he was wide awake again.
Was Xuan Yi right? Jun Linyuan considered the possibility that he was in love with this girl.
Could he actually have fallen for a cripple? A good-for-nothing who would die in a few decades? The crown prince shook his head.
Despite his high IQ, Jun Linyuan was useless when it came to relationships. He sat there in a daze until the sky outside began to brighten.
Seeing Feng Wu’s long eyelashes flutter, Jun Linyuan pushed Feng Wu away from him.
Feng Wu’s head bumped into a wall.
That woke her up completely.
Seeing the dent she made in the snow wall, Feng Wu was baffled.
Rubbing her forehead, she looked up at Jun Linyuan in confusion. “Did I do that?”
Seeing Feng Wu’s swollen forehead, Jun Linyuan felt a little guilty, but he only raised his chin. “It wasn’t me.”
Feng Wu pouted, but couldn’t think of any other possibility. She still mumbled in bewilderment, “I think someone shoved me into that wall when I was still asleep.”
Jun Linyuan coughed into his fist.
“Your Royal Highness, have you caught a cold?” Feng Wu asked immediately.
Jun Linyuan had to be alright. She needed him to keep her safe while that Frosty Night Beast was still lurking somewhere.
The crown prince enjoyed the concern in the girl’s voice, but still kept his face straight.
He only darted Feng Wu a glance without another word.
“Hey, what’s this?” Feng Wu then picked up something on the ground and studied it.
It was no common pouch.
Instead of cloth, it was made from some special material.
Feng Wu could even sense a faint fluctuation of energy from it.
“Is it an infinity storage bag?” Feng Wu asked Jun Linyuan in bewilderment.
