After Lu Yang finished placing the incense, he walked down from the temple’s steps with a heavy heart and stared at the smoke beside the incense burner.
“What is it, darling? Did Laojun say something to you? Why do you look unhappy?”
Having just walked to the front hall, Liu Yishi saw that his son seemed off and immediately grew a bit worried. Could Laojun have given him some sort of hint? Lu Yang looks anxious, so it probably isn’t anything good.
