br>Is there any problem with that?” A wine cup was pushed towards of Lu Qicheng.

Lu Qicheng was dumbfounded, feeling that it was strange to hear these words from Princess Qiyang’s mouth.
But these noble princes and princesses are born arrogant, and whatever they wanted to do, who dared object? Although Lu Qicheng said that he wasn’t afraid of her because his position was stable now, there was no need to offend the other party.
So, he didn’t say anything and took a sip of the wine.

Qiyang glanced at the half empty wine cup, then suddenly stood up and walked towards Lu Qicheng.

Just when Lu Qicheng’s face showed a look of confusion, a delicate hand stroked his cheek.
The white and slender fingers stroked his face lightly, from his handsome eyebrows down to the bridge of his nose.
The movements were gentle and intimate, as if it was being affectionate.

It wasn’t until the fingertips touched the stubbles on his chin that it quickly curled back as if it had been pricked.
But after a while, that hand couldn’t help but caress between his eyebrows gently, as if being nostalgic…

Lu Qicheng’s heartbeat accelerated uncontrollably.
He looked up at Qiyang.
Her Royal Highness the Princess’s beauty was undeniably enough to make any man fall in love.
He was naturally attracted to her at the start, but unfortunately she was too cold and no matter what methods he used, she seemed to be wrapped in ice and didn’t care about it.

Could it be that today, the princess finally realized his good points and took the initiative to break the ice?

Lu Qicheng was a little excited and also a little content.
As his heartbeat grew faster, he stretched out his hand to grab Qiyang’s hand.
But in the end, he only grabbed empty air, and his heart felt inexplicably empty.
He looked at her blankly and called out, “Your Highness?”

Qiyang looked at him, and suddenly asked.
“Do you know what This Palace likes the most about you?”

When Lu Qicheng heard the word “like”, his heart began beating loudly again.
He was obviously no longer a young brat anymore, and he had had a taste of women somewhere else, but he still felt uncontrollably excited right now.
He raised his hand and pressed on his beating chest.
He always felt that he didn’t like Princess Qiyang that much, but his heart couldn’t help beating so fast because of her words.

With this inexplicable emotion in his heart, Lu Qicheng unconsciously followed Qiyang’s words and asked, “I don’t know, what does Your Highness like the most?”

Qiyang smiled, her eyes still on Lu Qicheng’s handsome face, and replied, “Of course I like your face the most.” Her eyes suddenly lost their warmth, and her gaze became cold and sharp.
“I like your face the most.
This face that used to look exactly like hers.”

As soon as these words came out, Lu Qicheng’s eyes widened.
The secret that had been hidden for many years was suddenly revealed, and it was by the princess herself.
His heart couldn’t stop pounding, making it hurt a little.

Thousands of thoughts flashed through his mind, and his first though was to kill her.
But he was in the Princess’s mansion right now, and he was completely unprepared.
It was impossible for him to kill her, and it was even more impossible to clean up afterwards.
So the idea of killing had to be thrown out temporarily.
He decided to play the fool and forced a smile, “What does Your Highness mean by that? Who am I…”

There were thousands of thoughts in his mind, and Lu Qicheng’s first thought was to kill someone.
But now he is in the princess’ mansion, and since he is completely unprepared, he can’t kill her, and it is even more impossible for him to clean himself after killing her.
So the idea of ​​killing people had to be temporarily suppressed.
He decided to pretend to be stupid and forced a smile: “What does the princess mean by this? Who do I look like…”

Before he could finish speaking, Lu Qicheng suddenly spurted out a mouthful of blood.
The dark red liquid splashed the corner of Qiyang’s skirt, as if it was stained with red plums.

“Princess, you…” Lu Qicheng looked at Qiyang in disbelief, pressing his beating heart tightly with one hand.
It was only at this moment that he realized that his heart hadn’t been beating wildly because of excitement or shock, but because he had been poisoned a long time ago!

The poisoned wine had been prepared for him from the start, and she never wanted to listen to his explanations.

Qiyang just looked at him coldly, watching him vomit blood and fall to the ground, pressing on his chest as the light on his eyes gradually faded…

Lu Qicheng didn’t even ask why.
He didn’t understand why Princess Qiyang would attack him until he died.
To avenge that person? But why would Princess Qiyang avenge her?

Qiyang naturally had no interest on answering the questions of a dead man.
Looking at Lu Qicheng’s corpse turning cold, the emotions in her eyes ranged from the joy of accomplishing a great revenge, to the sorrow of having lost everything, to a daze from not knowing where things will go.
She looked inexplicably pitiful.

After an unknown amount of time, Zhi Ting finally came back with warm food.
As soon as she entered the door, she saw the Prince Consort lying dead on the ground.
She covered her mouth in shock and looked at the blood on the corner of Her Highness’s skirt, and called out in a trembling voice, “Your Highness…”

Qiyang flicked her sleeves and turned to leave.
“Clean it up.”
