Nangong Yu suddenly smiled and said, “How is this a problem? I naturally have a way to help you solve it.”
Hexi raised her eyebrows and looked at him. She knew that what this guy said must not be a normal way. She couldn’t help but squint and said, “Tell me about it first.”
Nangong Yu really loved her arrogant and cunning look. He pinched her little nose, then he leaned close to her ear and whispered, “As long as you marry me, my betrothal gift will be delivered to you. Xi’ er, you naturally have the crystal stones to keep these people. I can promise that my betrothal gift will be able to let you keep this 100,000 Zhenwei Army for hundreds of years.
Hexi was taken aback for a moment. Feeling the warm breath of the man blowing her sensitive earlobe and neck, she couldn’t help blushing. She pushed him away and said in anger, “Don’t make trouble! I’m talking serious business with you!”
Nangong Yu looked at her innocently, “I’m now talking about serious business to Xi’er right!?”
As he said, he slowly grabbed Hexi’s hand and pressed it on her chest. Once again, he asked in a very solemn and earnest voice, “Xi’er, when will you marry me?”
Hexi blushed and wanted to withdraw her hand. Her voice was low like a mosquito fluttering, “We were just talking about serious business, why are you saying this again?”
How would Nangong Yu let her withdraw her hand? He said softly, “I have already proposed a marriage, and you did not object that day.”
Hexi shook her head quickly, “That was just to deal with the Nalan Family, how can you take this seriously…”
“How can I not?” Nangong Yu flipped his wrist, and a red marriage proposal appeared in his hand, “Look, I even got Xi’er marriage proposal too. Does Xi’er still want to renege it?”
Seeing Hexi blushing and not speaking, Nangong Yu squeezed her chin and forced her to raise her head to meet his eyes. His voice was low and dull with the loss and anxiety that he would never have usually, “Xi’er, you still don’t trust me enough; don’t like me enough, right? So you regretted it; you don’t want to marry me as my wife?”
Nangong Yu also knew that it was too fast to marry Xi’er now. He knew that this little girl was overcautious and independent, and her feelings for people were even slower.
Therefore, it was best to take his time to spoil her little by little and to let her get used to him so that she would never leave him.
But today, seeing Hexi’s performance under Dragon Tiger Mountain, seeing the fanatical admiration of Zhenwei Army soldiers for her, and seeing the tacit interaction between Ouyang Haoxuan and her, Nangong Yu suddenly felt uneasy.
The girl in front of her was so dazzling and outstanding, and her light would become more and more unconcealed. If one day, everyone knows her goodness, will someone take Xi’er from him? ?
Hexi also felt Nangong Yu’s anxiety, even sadness. She didn’t know why Nangong Yu was suddenly upset, but his emotions still infected her and made her feel bad.
She stretched out her hand to hug Nangong Yu, and couldn’t help but softly said, “I have no regrets, Nangong Yu. For me, I have decided to follow you in my lifetime. If you don’t abandon me, I won’t leave you.”
“It’s just that now is really not the time. Xiao Chi’s illness is still not healed; there are still many hidden dangers in about my origin; the Feng Family and the Doctors Association are also lurking in the dark. I just…”
When Nangong Yu heard Hexi saying words like ‘not leaving him’, his worries and lost were all gone.

I never understand in these kinds of stories (romances, no matter the country they are from) where one or both of the main couple think they need to solve all the problems before they can be together. What’s the point in that? Be together and fight the difficulties together! Sheesh!
