He looked at 'Lan Waihu,' who was beside him to gauge her response to the situation. Her face was visibly pale as well; it seemed like she was surprised by the place as well.
"Don't be afraid; I will protect you." He held Lan Waihu's little hand as he spoke.
Lan Waihu bit her lip and looked at him with tears rolling in her eyes, "Will you dislike me after seeing all that my family has done?"
"No, it has nothing to do with you." Yan Chen rubbed her hair and assured her.
Lan Waihu leaned into his arms and spoke softly, "I am still terrified..."
"What are you afraid of?"
"I am afraid that your friends will not be able to accept me once this has been exposed."
Yan Chen was not very good at lying, even when he needed to comfort someone. He was silent for a while before he replied, "This matter has nothing to do with you. If they really can't accept you, I will run away with you to stay away from any troubles."
'Lan Waihu' remained silent. Yan Chen's remarks are what any girl wanted to hear. Her eyes shimmered slightly as she slowly reached out her arms and held Yan Chen's waist. She did not speak but just leaned her head against his muscular chest.
Having her so close to him, Yan Chen could not help but sniff her familiar scent. All of a sudden, he felt very sorry for the way he had been treating her. Once he had his suspicions about her, he grew rather wary of his wife. But now, looking at her natural movements and familiar appearance, he felt that he had overthought the situation.
The only change that he had seen in her behavior was the fact that she was trying to seduce him very often. Nonetheless, could it be because she suddenly changed her mind and understood him better?
The thought of this made him feel even more guilty. He stretched out his arm around her and gave her a kiss on her forehead. "Rest assured, Little Fox. I will not abandon you." The two of them embraced each other tightly.
As the three of them had an invisible spell around them to keep them safe, they did not always go around together. At that very moment, Gu Xijiu was not with them. Instead, she went to visit the battleship hangar.
The security facilities there were the most advanced in the area with a variety of high-precision instruments. Gu Xijiu was not very sure if she could walk in undetected, so she asked Yan Chen to go to wander around somewhere safer first while she went in to investigate.
Gu Xijiu's spells had worked wonders for the three of them so far. They had met with several patrol staff along the way, and no one had noticed them. As an added safety measure, Gu Xijiu managed to get the three of them changed into the uniform worn by the Blue Fox people. Therefore, even if they were discovered, they could blend themselves with the Blue Fox people and wait for an opportunity to escape.
Yan Chen was still hugging Lan Waihu tightly in his arm. He felt a warm feeling in his heart that he had denied himself from feeling for some time. He suddenly thought that he had been somewhat cruel to her for rejecting her so many times in the past. He paused for a moment, and then whispered in her ear, "When we go back, let's stay together again."
Lan Waihu's eyes brightened, knowing what he meant at once. Her pretty face turned red, and she nodded. "Okay!"
Her blushing cheeks were like red apples, which made her look very cute. Yan Chen's heart jumped at the sight of it, and he kissed her cheek gently. "Little Fox, I..." Before he finished his sentence, he suddenly couldn't continue speaking.
He saw a beautiful woman standing in the distance with a long, neat hair that was tied behind her head with a ribbon. She was wearing a light blue large robe but looked a little weak and pale. Only the space in between her eyebrows was bright red. This was the woman who looked exactly like Lan Waihu!
At this very moment, she was leaning against a pillar, and her eyes were looking in Yan Chen's direction. It was rather direct, which made him feel that she could see them. The man's heart rate was already slightly elevated earlier, but right now, it was racing uncontrollably.
Subconsciously, he let go of Lan Waihu and walked toward the woman. Lan Waihu's grabbed his sleeve and sent a directed audio to him. "Yan Chen, this woman and I look alike!"
