Both of them did not speak again.
At this time, a heavy rain suddenly fell from the sky.
The rain came fast and heavy, and the two of them were instantly drenched.
Wen Qi Qi was drenched and couldn’t help but turn her head towards the man behind her and said, “Your Highness, it’s raining so hard, shouldn’t we find a place to take shelter first and wait for the rain to stop before we leave?”
Gu Lin Chao was lost in thought and did not even seem to notice the heavy rain pouring down on him.
It was only when Wen Qi Qi’s hand was on the back of his hand that he came back to his senses as if in shock.
“Let’s leave Juezhou first.” He replied with narrowed eyes. He took off his outer robe with one hand and wrapped it around her, then his legs clamped the belly of the horse causing the stallion to neigh and run even faster.
Wen Qi Qi’s whole body was suddenly wrapped up by him. There was a blackness in front of her eyes, and only the distinctive smell of Gu Lin Chao’s body on her clothes entered her nose.
She froze, but finally did not raise her hand to remove the coat.
The horse carried the two of them out of Juezhou City, but at the same time, the rain fell even harder.
The bean-sized raindrops hit Gu Lin Chao’s body swiftly, but he seemed to feel no pain. The gloom between his eyebrows was deep, as if even the heaviest rain could not wash it away. His lips were pursed into a straight line, and the horse ran wildly.
Even though he could not see the rain falling outside, he could still feel the heavy rain on his body.
The horse galloped along, and she didn’t know how long it took, or where they would arrived.
She couldn’t help but lift up the corner of the robe. Looking out, she saw that heaven and earth were shrouded in a watery fog. Because the rain was too heavy, it smashed on the ground and created a light fog, and she couldn’t see the road ahead clearly.
Thinking of this, her heart tightened. She turned her head to look around and saw that there seemed to be a dilapidated temple not far away, so she turned her head towards Gu Lin Chao and said, “Wang Ye, now that we have left Juezhou, why don’t we go to the temple over there to avoid the rain?”
Gu Lin Chao did not seem to hear what she said, his gaze was stagnant as he looked ahead.
Wen Qi Qi’s heart sank, and only then did she realize that something seemed wrong with him.
“Wang Ye?” She shook his arm, “What’s wrong with you?”
Gu Lin Chao finally heard her voice and looked down at her, “Hmm?”
Wen Qi Qi’s heart was relieved. She pointed to a short distance ahead and said, “There seems to be a temple there, let’s go there to avoid the rain.”
Gu Lin Chao saw that her head and face were covered with rain, and finally nodded his head, “Okay.” His voice was unusually hoarse.
Wen Qi Qi’s heart sank, what was wrong with Gu Lin Chao?
In a short time, the two of them rode the horse and arrived in front of the dilapidated temple.
As soon as the horse stopped, Wen Qi Qi jumped off the horse, then held Gu Lin Chao’s arm and said, “Your Highness, come down.”
When Gu Lin Chao heard her voice, he turned his head somewhat sluggishly to look at her and saw her standing in the rain, soaked to the skin. Her clothes were thin and clung to her body, outlining her beautiful body ……
His eyes darkened, and his Adams apple rolled up and down.
After a moment, he brushed away her hand and dismounted from the horse.
When he got off the horse, his feet were weak and he almost fell down. A soft tender arm came over at the right time and wrapped around his waist.
His body tensed up in an instant.
“Your Majesty, are you sick? I’ll help you in.” Her worried voice rang in his ears.
Before he could react, the girl’s delicate and soft body was already close to him, and her soft arms even tightly circled his waist, helping him towards the temple.
