Translator: 549690339

Although Lu Chen was a prince, he rarely flaunted his royal status in front of Bai Qingqing because they grew up together from childhood, and also because he possessed the soul of a transmigrator.

As a child, Lu Chen liked to verbally tease Bai Qingqing just to see if she would show any signs of panic or distress.

However, years passed and he never saw any change in her expressions.

When Bai Qingqing heard Lu Chen’s words now, her heart felt no different from when she was a child; she didn’t find anything amiss and no look of panic crossed her face.

Seeing this, Lu Chen thought to himself that she indeed was a heartless woman.

At that moment, Bai Qingqing took the initiative to salute Lu Chen, saying, “Greetings, Prince.”

Even though Lu Chen did not impose his royal identity in her presence, he was still a prince, the North Prince, so she had to salute him when they met.

Lu Chen immediately supported Bai Qingqing’s jade arm, smiling as he gazed into her eyes and said, “Bai, you’re being too formal. Why salute me when you’re with me?”

Seeing Lu Chen’s eyes fixed intently on Bai Qingqing, Chu Yuqin suddenly felt an odd sensation within her.

She couldn’t help but wonder, could it be that Chen’er had those kinds of feelings for Bai?

Thinking this, Chu Yuqin quickly stopped herself from continuing down that train of thought.

She didn’t know what was wrong with her today; every time she saw Lu Chen talking to another woman, her heart felt sour, and she always suspected that Lu Chen had feelings for them.

Chu Yuqin tried to reassure herself internally that even if Chen’er was interested in them, it wasn’t strange, and there was no need for her to overthink it.

At that time, Lu Chen said to Bai Qingqing, “Bai, come in quickly. 1 want to hear about where you’ve been and what you’ve experienced these past years.”

Saying this, Lu Chen took Bai Qingqing’s jade hand and walked toward the Prince’s Mansion, and Bai Qingqing offered no resistance, not even a thought of trying to pull away.

They had been close since childhood, even sleeping while hugging each other, so Bai Qingqing was long accustomed to close contact with Lu Chen; therefore, she didn’t mind him holding her hand at all.

Soon, they arrived at the main courtyard, where Lu Chen had a maidservant brew a pot of Dragon and Phoenix Tea, which he poured personally for Bai Qingqing.

The system mentioned that Dragon and Phoenix Tea was needed to restore Bai Qingqing’s emotions, although he didn’t know what her reaction would be once her emotions were activated.

The main effect of the Dragon and Phoenix Tea was to increase a woman’s favorability towards oneself and make the woman unable to leave him, so even if it restored her emotions, it probably wouldn’t have any adverse reactions on her.

After pouring the Dragon and Phoenix Tea for Bai Qingqing, Lu Chen held her hand and said, “Bai, this is a special tea from the Prince’s Mansion. It can refresh and invigorate the mind. Give it a try.”

Upon hearing this, Bai Qingqing didn’t say anything and picked up the teacup, lightly taking a sip.

With that sip, Bai Qingqing realized the tea indeed had a refreshing and invigorating effect, but since she was devoid of emotions, she did not show any surprise.

She then set the teacup down and, with a blank expression, said to Lu Chen, “Thank you for the tea, Prince.”

Lu Chen gave a slight smile and then asked, “After you left the capital, where did you go to cultivate? Why didn’t you come back to see me?”

Bai Qingqing replied, “1 went to cultivate deep in a certain mountain range. 1 don’t know exactly where.”

She lied with a straight face, and outsiders couldn’t tell she was lying—if not for Lu Chen having a system, he might have really believed that she had gone to cultivate deep in a mountain range.

Lu Chen then continued to ask, “So do you plan to go back?”

Bai Qingqing answered indifferently, “No, I’ve completed my training.”

Hearing Bai Qingqing’s response, Chu Yuqin immediately suggested, “Since you’ve completed your training, why don’t you stay at North Prince Mansion from now on? Stay with us.”

Bai Qingqing did not refuse and agreed neatly, “Mm, okay.”

This time her main task in coming to the North Prince Mansion was to surveil the Northern Prince, and since Chu Yuqin had asked her to stay, it was a good opportunity for her to watch his every move.

Seeing Bai Qingqing’s agreement, Chu Yuqin felt incredibly happy in her heart.

Unlike Chu Yuqin, Lu Chen knew Bai Qingqing would take the initiative to stay, so when he heard her agree, he wasn’t surprised at all.

What he was thinking now was that Bai Qingqing had come to the North Prince Mansion at this time, and just as the Barbarian Tribe was moving south, some secrets of the North Prince Mansion would inevitably be exposed in front of her.

Such as the Brocade Guard, and the grenade cannon that he would soon demonstrate to the soldiers.

If Bai Qingqing reported these matters to his father, the Sum Emperor, it would likely cause trouble for him.

So, the best method was to make Bai Qingqing completely his woman before she could report these things.

Only by doing so could he protect his secrets and keep his little secrets from being discovered by his father, the Sum Emperor.

With this in mind, Lu Chen said to Bai Qingqing with a smile, “Bai, this tea also helps in enhancing one’s realm. You should drink more of it.”

As he spoke, Lu Chen poured himself a cup of the Dragon and Phoenix Tea and then drank it down.

When Bai Qingqing heard Lu Chen say that the tea in front of her could help enhance her realm, she immediately became interested. She had originally thought that the tea was only for refreshing the mind and had not expected it to have other effects.

At this moment, Bai Qingqing said, “Oh, okay.”

As her words fell, she picked up the teacup again and took another sip. With this sip, she found that the tea did seem to help in enhancing her realm, as the inner strength within her body flowed more smoothly.

Needing to gather intelligence, Bai Qingqing asked, “Prince, is there more of this tea?”

Lu Chen replied, “Yes, my mansion has tea trees. Whenever you want to drink tea in the future, you can pick the leaves to brew.”

Listening to Lu Chen’s response, Bai Qingqing was already preparing to report this piece of intelligence.

A tea that could enhance one’s realm was unheard of, and as the Deputy Commander of the Shadow Guard, she would surely tell the Sum Emperor.

To probe for more information, Bai Qingqing took the initiative to ask, “Prince, 1 saw a woman in the city today with a plum blossom mark on her forehead. Don’t know if you have seen her.”

Chen Wanrong felt the extraordinariness of Bai Qingqing, and Bai Qingqing similarly sensed the uniqueness of Chen Wanrong. Both were grandmasters and well-acquainted with the aura released by grandmasters.

Bai Qingqing suspected that the woman was the Mysterious Grandmaster rumored to be in the North Prince Mansion, so she planned to thoroughly investigate the woman to find out what forces lay behind her.

Hearing Bai Qingqing’s question, Lu Chen didn’t hide anything and directly said, “Are you talking about Miss Chen?”

“She does have a plum blossom mark on her forehead, and she is currently in the Prince’s Mansion. Do you have something you need from her? I can have her come over right now.”

Hearing Lu Chen’s answer, Bai Qingqing thought to herself that surely the woman was the Mysterious Grandmaster of the North Prince Mansion.

Now that she had confirmed the target, the next steps were straightforward; she just needed to figure out what that woman was doing in the North Prince Mansion.

Just as Bai Qingqing was thinking this, her brain suddenly stalled, followed by a surge of intense pain.

The next moment, Bai Qingqing’s expression became dazed, her body swayed, and she felt as if countless images flashed through her mind, as if memories that didn’t belong to her were entering her brain.

Seeing Bai Qingqing raise her hand to her head and stagger, Lu Chen quickly steadied her, “Bai, Bai, what’s wrong with you?”
