Before he made her the princess, he had told her very frankly that he had many enemies that would use her to make him surrender and that she would not be safe. He asked if she was willing to take the risk. If she refused to, he would help conceal her identity and provide her with a comfortable life in the most secured and picturesque place in the Devil Kingdom. In the end, she chose to become his princess.
She got to spend more time with him. In return, he treated her well with care and respect. To the outsiders, she was his most cherished, beloved princess. Never had she received the amount of kindness and care before. Therefore, she was willing to take the risk and lure his hidden enemies into every trap. She watched as he got rid of them, one by one.
She thought their relationship would last forever. She thought that one day, he would be touched by her love. Never had she expected to see Gu Xijiu again. What had Gu Xijiu done? What had she done to deserve his heart?
Yuanyuan wanted Gu Xijiu dead, in the most painful way possible. She had been on her bed for two nights and was feeling quite lethargic. Suddenly, she saw the shadow of a man at the door. Someone then entered her room.
The room temperature used to be a little chilly until the man appeared. He carried strong waves of heat around him as he entered the room. The temperature quickly rose a few degrees. She opened her eyes and trembled a little as soon as she recognized the man. “Brother.”
The man was Di Fuyi. He stood by her bed and talked down to her with a tight smile. “Yun Qingluo, I am not your brother. Your real brother is Yun Yanli, right?” His eyes were fixed at her blankly.
Taken by surprise, Yuanyuan looked up and was immediately intimidated by his colossal aura. The stress was unbearable. She stammered, “You knew it all along, didn’t you?”
“How long can you keep the truth from me, Madam Yun?” Di Fuyi taunted.
Yun Qingluo clenched her fists and defended herself firmly, “I did not mean to lie to you. I… I only stayed by Ye Ling’s side as Madam Yun. He was not my real husband.”
“Husband or not, it is none of my business,” Di Fuyi interrupted.
Yun Qingluo’s face grew pale as she looked at him with a guilty conscience. “Brother, I know that I have lied to you. It is my fault for not telling you about my background, but I never meant to hurt you. I only want what is best for you and have never done anything to hurt you.”
Di Fuyi looked at her blankly and said, “You bribed the spy and asked them to tell me that Gu Xijiu and Yun Yanli were having a great time together and that they were happily traveling from city to city. Was that for my own good?”
Yun Qingluo did not know what to say. Her face was as pale as a sheet now. “They were indeed talking and laughing together. In fact, they were in many different cities together as well. Yun Yanli was looking for you, and Gu Xijiu went along with him. You knew that Yun Yanli planned to attack you, and yet there was no way you could leave the Devil Kingdom. I did not want to worry you, so I chose to hide the truth. It was for your own good.”
“You asked for two sets of Devil Quenching Clothing from Mr. Zhu on my behalf and secretly sent them out of the Devil Kingdom to Yun Yanli. Was it for my benefit as well?”
Yun Qingluo kept quiet.
“You used my name and requested for a million devil coins from Guardian Ling to build a secret chamber full of traps. You put people into the chamber in order to practice your sorcery. Was that for my own good?”
Pale-faced, Yun Qingluo said nothing more. She had been very careful in the execution of her every plan. She did not even tell her closest servant, so she never expected that one day, Di Fuyi would find out about it.
