"In your absence, Her Ladys.h.i.+p had often thought of you. Though in the beginning, she seemed to have mostly been angry, but later on… she grew concerned, wondering what might have happened to you and if you were still alive."
His eyes darted swiftly to sneak a glance at Bai Qingyue, before turning just as swiftly back to their original position. The harsh light emanating from Bai Qingyue's golden eyes had slightly softened, the tightness to his shoulders relaxing. 'Good. He seems somewhat pleased.'
"Continue." The Sovereign Lord commanded.
"Right away, Sire." Bai Yu cleared his throat. One should know that in all the years of his service, the Former Second In Command picked up on a few body language signs. In spite of not being a great tactician, he was still capable of interpreting his Master's displeasure. This awareness had helped save his life quite a few times.
"Her Ladys.h.i.+p kept on practising for the tournament as you instructed, as well as training her spiritual powers." Bai Yu stopped midway and tapped his paw before exclaiming, "Alas, her cultivation did not show any progress."
"Then how, pray tell, did my wife obtain her golden core?"
Bai Yu let out a short, strangled sound. "I'm getting to that point, Sire."
"... Hurry up." Said Bai Qingyue, sighing in aggravation.
"The Dragon Spy had returned as well. She… she…"
"Well?" Bai Qingyue asked impatiently, narrowing his eyes.
"She took a strange interest in Her Ladys.h.i.+p. She tried warning her of you. It seems as though the Dragoness cares, in her own strange way, about her Ladys.h.i.+p… that is, um..."
"Cares how? What did she tell her? Stop speaking in riddles." Bai Qingyue leaned forward, placing an elbow on each knee while his fingers stretched out and interlaced together. His face turned increasingly gloomy.
At that moment, Bai Yu came to a resolution that he wouldn't tell His Lords.h.i.+p about the kiss. There was just no way to stay alive after revealing that one part!
He turned to face His Lords.h.i.+p with droopy ears and said, "This all started with Her Ladys.h.i.+p. She was most courageous when confronting the Dragoness. She told her off from the very beginning." Bai Yu's ears perked up as he recalled that moment. "Oh, and remember the Spirit Beast My Lord had cooked up for Her Ladys.h.i.+p? Li Meirong sent the Dragoness on a fool's errand to seek said Spirit Beast! As expected of Her Ladys.h.i.+p!"
The corners of Bai Qingyue lips hooked up, ever so slightly, but not enough for Bai Yu to escape unscathed. "You neglected to inform me of what the Dragon Spy had told my wife."
Bai Yu innocently blinked. "Of course. That part, that is… they had a short argument, and Her Ladys.h.i.+p told her not to come back, but the Dragoness said she will. That was when she told Her Ladys.h.i.+p to stay clear of you, My Lord, that you are not all that you seem."
As he continued narrating, his chest swelled with pride. "In response to the Dragoness' warnings, Her Ladys.h.i.+p defended My Lords.h.i.+p's honour, informing her that she already knew all about My Lord and she told the Dragoness to stay away instead!"
Bai Qingyue hummed in approval, locking narrowed eyes with Bai Yu. "This pleases me to hear. However, I can not help but feel as though you are purposefully withholding an important piece of information from me."
Casting his stare aside, Bai Yu performed the most innocent looking face he could muster. "This Subordinate does not know what My Lord means, but there is more to tell!"
