This Is Not A Coincidence You Have Been Following Me!

Gu Xijiu wanted to take the leap of faith and reveal herself. However, all of a sudden, there seemed to be some movements in the tree above her. Swiftly, a figure flashed before her eyes and landed before her.
“My Eldest Prince Brother, it is me.”
Gu Xijiu was surprised! The man was Yun Yanli. He was hiding on the same tree as she was. When did he come here? Was he here before she came or after? She did not seem to notice his presence at all.
The curtain of the carriage was lifted. A handsome and alluring face could be seen behind the window. His beauty alone could bring calamity to the country and people.
The man’s explicit facial features suited his elfin face – big eyes, double eyelids, and small, cherry lips. The fluid glance in his eyes was attractive. For a woman, beauty as such was enough to overthrow a kingdom.
As chance would have it, he was born to be a man instead. She could tell his gender from his headgear and his identity.However, he had a typical woman’s face, but his voice was deep and grim.
His appearance was somewhat odd. Gu Xijiu did not feel quite right about the man. If she had not known about the identity of the eldest prince, she would have thought that the prince was actually a princess in disguise.
Since Yun Yanli had uncovered himself, there was no need for her to disclose her presence.
A look at the eldest prince was enough to confirm that he was not the man that she was looking for, even though he was wearing a robe of very intense purple. The color was close enough to the robe worn by the man in her dream, but she was sure that he was not the one.
“My third brother, what are you doing so secretly on the tree?”
Upon hearing the question, Yun Yanli frowned.
The Emperor Immortal had two sons and two daughters. Yun Yanli was the third among his siblings, so Yun Yanhong, the eldest prince, would often address him as his third brother.
Smilingly, Yun Yanli answered with great composure, “My Eldest Prince brother, this is a complete misunderstanding. I was here in the market and got tired after a while, so I decided to take a rest on the tree and fell asleep without even knowing it. If you had not called out to me, I would still be asleep.”
His explanation seemed legitimate. Yun Yanhong took his words with a grain of salt. He then observed the top of the tree, but could not see anything suspicious. This time, he took his remarks more seriously and nodded. “You seem to have a lot of free time. Why didn’t you take any guards with you?”
Yun Yanli responded with a smile, “I am only here for a walk. Moreover, this land belongs to the Celestial Kingdom. What should I be afraid of?”
“Don’t be so careless. Recently, the aggressors from the Devil Kingdom look like they are ready to make trouble. You are alone and single-handed. You have to be careful, so they do not stand a chance to plot any vicious plan against you,” Yun Yanhong continued scornfully.
“Thank you for your kind words, my Eldest Prince brother. I will be careful.”
The pair of brothers had a brief conversation. Soon, Yun Yanhong’s carriage departed and marched across the path.
Yun Yanli stood and watched as the carriage slowly moved away. Swiftly with a lunge, he was back on the tree. This time, he made his appearance right in front of Gu Xijiu. “Miss Gu, what a coincidence. We meet again.”
Idly, Gu Xijiu sat comfortably on the tree. “This is not a coincidence. You have been following me,” Gu Xijiu answered nonchalantly.
Yun Yanli was astonished.
There was a gleam in his eyes. A moment later, he smiled without making any denial. “You are indeed a smart lady. However, I have to say that I have not been following you on purpose. I saw you coincidentally in the market and watched as you climbed the tree. I knew you were asleep, so I was worried something bad might happen. I had to follow and watch out for you. Nonetheless, I have opportunely saved you from embarrassment. How will you thank me?”
