BEWARE OF SPOILERS!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
But why was this so? Towards Shen Miao, Fu Xiu Yi had a strange feeling in his heart. At the beginning when Shen Miao chased him, he hated stupid people but only thought of using the Shen family’s military power and thus used her. Afterwards there was suddenly a day when Shen Miao no longer chased him and Fu Xiu Yi then discovered that he did not understand Shen Miao one bit at all. Shen Miao was not stupid and was very cunning. The Shen family was also very peculiar. They were obviously a chess piece in his hand, but one did not know from when onwards it had escaped from his hands and now at the other side of the board, facing against him.
But at this moment, Fu Xiu Yi suddenly had an impulse to kick the brazier over because he felt that this scene was incorrect, like something was wrong with it. Just as he was somewhat unable to restrain himself from this unfathomable idea, there was a sudden commotion in the crowd. He turned back to look and saw that the crowd automatically parted to form a small road and the one leading at the front was a person with bright clothes and an angry horse.
That person pulled the reins, with bright red robes that were as hot as fire and galloped over from afar. The clothes were fluttering but it had an appearance of elegance and warmth, as if it could burn one’s eyes.
Everyone was in an uproar.
That person pulled the reins and stopped one step away from Shen Miao. When the horse slammed its hooves onto the ground, those people watching were shocked.
The young man sat high up on the horse and the silver mask was slightly tinted red due to the bring red robes. He did not say anything and leaned slightly forward on the back of the horse and extended a hand towards the bride.
He then opened his mouth in a lazy but irresistible manner.
“Here to marry you. Shen Jiao Jiao.”
