“Why do I feel that if we keep moving at this speed, the capital will have already been lost by the time we arrive?”
It was another seven days of a boring journey, with the motorcade occasionally stopping by cities only to restock. Tan Xin felt like she couldn’t take it anymore. If it weren’t for Bai Xiaofei, she would have walked off in a rage.
“Wars aren’t that simple. Even if the Sacks have been planning for a long time, Moonlight isn’t a soft persimmon they can squeeze as they like. Let alone just a few days, after months or even years, Moonlight will not fall.”
After the experience in Ethereal, Bai Xiaofei had gained a brand-new understanding of the empires. If they wanted to, they could assemble a terrifying force in an instant.
“You are quite optimistic about these women, huh? I warn you, you are not allowed to get entangled with the emperor after we reach the imperial city!” declared Tan Xin. Even though still far away from the capital, she was already on the alert.
“You are too optimistic about me. She is an emperor and I am a servant.” Bai Xiaofei smiled wryly. He really harbored no strange ideas for the Moonlight emperor who he had never even seen before…
“As if Ling Yue isn’t an emperor. He’s fifty and yet still regards you as his brother and good friend. The Moonlight emperor is only a royal sister in her thirties. It’s not impossible for her to make you marry into her family,” Tan Xin retorted.

“Fickle Bai, Master Ye summons you!”
Bai Xiaofei hadn’t spent the last seven days idly. After helping with some chores along the way, he successfully made himself a staff member of the presiding officer and now knew her name – Ye Xi.
“Wait, I’ll go with you!” Tan Xin immediately followed. She could clearly feel that Ye Xi had gradually been warming up towards Bai Xiaofei. This could be seen from how frequently she summoned him lately.
“My lord, Fickle Bai is here.”
Bai Xiaofei and Tan Xin were led to the front of the team where Ye Xi rode. The two quickly tried to catch up with her. Seeing them, Ye Xi slowed down.
“Up ahead is the Black Dragon Swarm, which we must pass through in order to arrive at the capital on time. However, a notorious band of bandits lives there, and our people are no match for them. Any suggestions?” asked Ye Xi aloofly.
Tan Xin snorted. “Isn’t this what you should consider? Why ask my Lil’ Bai? He is my servant, not yours!” she said as she stood protectively in front of Bai Xiaofei as if fearing that Ye Xi would do something to him.
“I considered and decided to call him. Don’t f
