When Papa Ren saw the familiar name on his phone, his hand shook slightly.
"Hello, Dad, I will be back at the end of the year." Ren Baqian's voice sounded, and it caused him slight surprise.
He was surprised by the content of the conversation.
"It's good that we know you are fine now. Since you are fine outside, don't call home anymore," Papa Ren's voice trembled.
Even if it had been a long time ago, recalling the time he had just heard that news, Papa Ren still felt as if he was struck by lightning.
"Everything's okay now, no need to overthink. I'm not a fugitive anymore." Ren Baqian laughed heartily.
"What's going on?" Papa Ren was startled, didn't the police say he was a murderer and had become a fugitive?
Ren Baqian spoke in a deep voice, "Actually, I'm an undercover agent. At that time, the police needed information from a criminal gang. However, I happened to be dealing with them because of something. Of course, it wasn't anything illegal. Thus, the police found me, and after considering it over, I decided it wasn't too risky, so I became an undercover agent. Now that the gang has been destroyed, I'm am cleared of my fugitive status."
Ren Baqian's words scared Papa Ren, and he was dumbstruck.
"Really?" There were some flaws in his account, but Papa Ren wasn't willing to think about it. Ren Baqian's words on so-called dealing with the gang, and as a result, the police who managed to find him made Papa Ren feel that something was amiss. But, he still wanted to believe the words that came from his son's mouth.
"Of course it's true. Otherwise, why would I dare to go back?" Ren Baqian replied.
"Great, great..." Papa Ren's lips trembled somewhat, and he didn't really know what else to say.
Ren Baqian felt a little guilty. "Everything's fine now, I'll be back in two months' time."
"Then, where are you now?" The father in him couldn't help but ask. He finally dared to ask this question after so long.
"I'm touring in Europe! Hang on, I'll show it to you!" Soon after, Ren Baqian turned on the video function and showed Papa Ren the scenery outside.
"Come back earlier, your mum and I are very worried about you," Papa Ren couldn't help but say as he looked at the exotic buildings that were full of European style.
"Understood! I'll come back as soon as possible. Tell mum not to worry as well," Ren Baqian replied.
"There won't be any more danger, right?" Papa Ren asked another question. He only hung up the phone after getting a definitive reply from Ren Baqian.
Ren Baqian stored his phone and then turned around. The empress was reading a fashion magazine while seated on a sofa not far away. Even though she couldn't read the words, she was able to look at the pictures.
At this time, the two of them were in a hotel suite arranged by Chen Shi.
After one whole day, both of their passports, as well as a brand-new bank card, were sent over.
At this time, there really wasn't anything going on anymore. They would begin their collaboration after the two of them returned to China.
The empress suddenly looked up and said, "You seem to be always telling lies recently!" Over the past two days, she had suddenly discovered this problem and was a little confused.
"In the past, everyone used to call me a cute and honest boy. However, after my sincere heart has been given to someone, I couldn't get it back anymore." Ren Baqian was motionless when he said that.
He sighed. In the past, people really used to call him a cute and honest boy.
That was my youth, as well as the time running beneath the sunset that has already passed.
[A famous sentence from a Chinese online drama – Unexpectedness]
Ren Baqian's words made the empress's heartbeat race a little. She felt this way every time he said something mushy like that.
"In that case, let's set off!" Ren Baqian bowed slightly, extended his hand into gesture inviting the queen out.
Ren Baqian, "..."
Two days later, based on the basis of friendly cooperation between the two sides, with a hidden bitterness, Chen Shi specially arranged for someone to handle the shopping bags that filled up half of the hotel suite.
Ren Baqian and the empress disappeared without a trace after leaving the suite.
No one could keep track of the whereabouts of the two of them.
Ren Baqian and the empress saw a change in the surrounding environment. The two had already appeared at Yangxin Palace Hall. From the huge door, the light illuminated the hall.
Next to the empress's wooden couch were two lamps also emitting light.
However, it was still a little dim in the palace hall.
The empress released Ren Baqian's hand and returned to the couch. She lazily reclined on the surface and her gaze wandered.
The drastic difference of the two worlds affected her due to the carefreeness on Earth and the desolateness in this world. The relaxed feeling did not recede from her body, and for a moment, she didn't want to stay in this palace hall.
"Pour some wine for me!"
"I'm extremely willing to do so!" Ren Baqian laughed softly and placed two barrels down.
There were two barrels of which, one contained ammonia and the other contained silver nitrate, which were specially used to create the silver mirror reaction.
As for the other things, they could be obtained in this world but might me a little troublesome to procure.
Nevertheless, this world must be educated on the basic physics and chemistry concepts. Otherwise, many things could not be done. Not everything could be directly brought from Earth.
As Ren Baqian visited Yangxin Palace Hall every day, he knew where the wine was kept. He directly headed to get the wine jug and cup, before pouring one cup of wine for the empress.
Seeing that the empress drank the wine in one gulp, Ren Baqian filled her wine cup to the brim once again.
"Accompany me to drink!" the empress ordered.
Ren Baqian poured himself a cup, tipped it back, and gulped the wine. It was as if a knife slid down his esophagus and entered his stomach.
He went to the side, turned on his laptop and searched for a while before playing the tune "Canon".
A slow-moving piano sound played and a warm atmosphere spread in the hall.
After drinking another cup of wine, Ren Baqian extended his hand and asked, "Your Majesty, do you want to dance? The dance that we saw at the restaurant yesterday."
Ren Baqian was talking about what happened at the restaurant yesterday. The two of them witnessed the proposal of a man and a woman and everyone present gave applause as their blessings. The restaurant also played the same piece he was currently playing, "Canon".
As they were elated, that man and woman danced along with the music.
Up until now, Ren Baqian had yet to forget that memorable scene.
The corners of the empress's eyes were bent, and she was slightly moved. This piece of music could really stir up one's emotion. She was also hesitant as she had never done anything like this before. Her status also made her feel that these things were not worth doing.
Ren Baqian took a step forward and pulled the empress's finger. "Why not try it out and see how it feels like?"
The two stood facing each other. Ren Baqian and the empress appeared as if they were almost the same height as both parties could directly look into each other's eyes.
Ren Baqian placed one of his hands on the empress's shoulder and another hand on her waist. The warm sensation transmitted through his palm and made his heart sway.
This was the first time that he and the empress were so intimate.
The empress felt a pair of men's hands resting on her body, and she was slightly nervous, so much so, that she had goosebumps all over her body.
She had never experienced something like that before. A completely strange feeling impacted her heart.
"Don't be nervous, this is the first step, the second step, the third step..." Ren Baqian whispered to appease the empress.
However, the empress became even more nervous. This kind of intimate action and the warmth of his hands made her feel as if there was an elephant rampaging in her heart. Her ears turned completely red as well.
The empress felt that she had never been so clumsy before. The confidence of the fifth most powerful expert in the world was gone.
Just at this moment, the empress lifted her head and looked over Ren Baqian's shoulders. She saw Qing Yuan and Hong Luan with their mouths open wide and blank expressions
The empress exerted some force as she became nervous.
Ren Baqian immediately flew outwards and became plastered onto the walls of Yangxin Palace Hall.
When Ren Baqian woke up an hour later, he discovered that he was lying on a bed in Pingle Park. His entire body and head hurt to death, as if he had sustained some kind of serious injury.
"Take a good rest now that you are awake. These next two days, don't move about randomly," the empress said faintly while seated on a stool that wasn't far away. After which, she hurriedly left the place as if she was escaping.
Ren Baqian wanted to touch his head but when he wanted to exert his strength, he felt a burst of pain on his back. This left him drenched in cold sweat.
"What exactly happened?" Ren Baqian was unclear. What happened to him?
After carefully recalling for a long time, he recalled that he had just come back from Milan with the empress. Then, he and the empress drank two glasses of wine. Following which, he was completely unable recall how he got into such a state.
"Even if I drank too much, I wouldn't feel like I have been trampled on by an elephant, right?"
"What exactly happened?"
After a long time, Ren Baqian finally managed to place a hand over his head where there was a sharp pain. There was actually a huge lump there.
