Chapter 926: All She Wanted Right Now Was To Stay As Far From Him As Possible
Just as she was starting to feel uncertain about this, she felt a grip tighten around her chin and the next thing she knew, her face was lifted by him. “Weren’t you acting brazenly just a moment before? Why have you turned into a little quail now?”
Lu Liangwei shot him a look, secretly wondering if all men had a weakness for demure, fragile women. It was the same yesterday back in the imperial study—he could not stand to see her being hurt.
At the thought of this, she stealthily slid her fingers to her thigh and pinched hard.
She quietly took a sharp breath from the pain and her eyes immediately turned red. She raised her head and looked at him tearfully as she said pitifully, “You have forgotten all about me, Your Majesty. I would never dare to act brazenly in front of you. I fear you would order me to be beheaded in a fit of anger.”
She had just finished speaking when Long Yang’s face suddenly turned pale-white. “Why are you being ridiculous? How could I ever have you beheaded? Stop spouting nonsense!”
He did not realize that his voice was trembling, but Lu Liangwei had caught it.
A smile appeared on the corner of her lips as she took the opportunity to nuzzle in his arms. “I knew it. Your Majesty can’t bear for me to be hurt. Even if you don’t remember me, I’m still in your heart.”
Long Yang gave a start and got slightly annoyed. “Why are you so thick-skinned?”

However, his heart was in a frenzy.
This was because he was unfamiliar with the anxious emotion he just felt. As for the words he uttered, he had blurted them out without even thinking twice.
It was as if everything had happened naturally.
That feeling of not being in control came back to him, making him feel lost and unsure of himself.
At the thought of this, he came to a decision and suddenly pushed her away.
Caught by surprise, Lu Liangwei was sent reeling backward from the push.
Her expression changed as she thought she was about to fall, but then the man’s strong arms immediately pulled her back just in time.
She collected her scattered thoughts and grabbed his sleeves. She was filled with both fear and anger.
Did His Majesty just push her?
Was he unaware that she was pregnant?
What would have happened if she had fallen?
She was scared and angry, yet at the same time, felt immensely hurt.
She looked at his familiar face. It was the exact same person, yet there seemed to be a wall between them. No matter how hard she tried, she was unable to break through it.
The more she thought about it, the more sorrowful she felt. The emotions pent up within her suddenly burst in an instant. She gave him a hard shove and turned to walk away.
She no longer wanted to bother herself with him. He was free to do whatever he liked.
Long Yang had already regretted his actions the moment he pushed her, otherwise, he would not have rushed to pull her back.
He was now filled with anxiety over what he had done, and could not come to terms with it.
Watching her walk away without even looking back, a sense of panic welled within him. Before he realized it, he was already chasing after her.
Lu Liangwei ignored him. All she wanted right now was to stay as far away from him as possible. Otherwise, what could happen if he shoved her again?
She felt extremely hurt.
His Majesty would never have treated her this way in the past.
She missed the old version of His Majesty…
Long Yang caught up to her in no time.
He grabbed her by the shoulders and said quite unhappily, “Lu Liangwei, you’re getting more and more impudent. You’re only allowed to leave if I say so. You…”
His voice abruptly stopped.
Lu Liangwei brushed his hand away and continued walking.
Long Yang remained where he was, stunned.
She was actually crying.
He had seen the tears on her face.
He felt a sudden pang of pain in his heart.
How did this happen?
Why was she crying?
His heart pounded painfully as he watched her tears flow and he felt himself being barely able to breathe.
Long Yang placed a hand over his chest. He was almost unable to understand his own heart.
He pursed his lips as he watched the girl walk further and further away. He wanted to give chase, but he felt he had done nothing wrong. She was the one who was overreacting.
It was wrong of him to push her, but he had pulled her back in time. She did not even fall, did she?
Women were so troublesome. They were emotional and too sensitive!
