Staring into those eyes that were as deep as the sea, a little smile appeared on Baili Hongzhuang’s lips.
“When you helped me, did you have a reason?”
“That’s different!” Dibei Chen raised his voice a little, “Aren’t you worried that I’ll betray you after you cure my legs?”
The things he did were just little things anybody would do, but what Baili Hongzhuang’s doing is far beyond that.
“Is that important?” Baili Hongzhuang asked back.
Dibei Chen was stunned, never expecting for her to give such an answer…… How isn’t this important?
“When you asked me this, I knew you didn’t help me for anything but to help me.”
The smile on Baili Hongzhuang’s face grew even gentler, “Besides, even if you were to act against me because of this, I wouldn’t care.”
The decisions she chose, she has never regretted!
Although she didn’t know Dibei Chen’s true identity, although she didn’t know why Dibei Chen was trying to get close to her, she still believed that Dibei Chen’s actions were sincere.
Maybe it was because for once, there was someone standing in front of her.
Maybe because it was the first time somebody could understand her sadness.
Maybe it was because her heart was beating for him.
Because of this, it was enough.
Dibei Chen suddenly found there was no way to see through Baili Hongzhaung.
Even though he could never understand how her medicinal skills were developed, from the time they’ve spent together, he had felt Baili Hongzhuang was very simple.
But at this moment, it was like he suddenly didn’t know her anymore. How could the problems others cared about so much, in her eyes, be seen with such unimportance?
“Why… don’t you care?”
“Because you helped me, didn’t you?”
Baili Hongzhuang smiled. If before she was suspicious of Dibei Chen, now she felt that he was truly a good person.
Even though he was usually complicated and wise, his thoughts were clear and simple and actually, he was very kind.
Gazing at the sweet, smiling face before him, for the first time, Dibei Chen thought this world was truly complicated.
“If there isn’t a problem, can I start?” Baili Hongzhuang raised an eyebrow as she asked, “First, I have to deal with the paralysis in your legs.”
“Changing your physique will need some rare ingredients.”
“But trust that after the physique is changed, your cultivation speed and talent will increase by leaps and bounds. Don’t worry.”
Dibei Chen nodded. He knew Baili Hongzhuang was comforting him.
Silver needles were inserted into the acupuncture points in his leg. Baili Hongzhuang’s eyes were careful. Each time, the needles were swift and accurate.
As early as when Baili Hongzhuang and Dibei Chen’s conversation started, Hei Mu had already retreated to the sidelines.
If he were to remain there, he’d be nothing but an eyesore. It was better to leave Lady Baili and his little lord alone so they could get along better.
The peach blossom forest was quiet and peaceful, leaving only the silhouettes of a slender, white robed figure and a tall, pale, golden robed figure.
The woman sat on the man’s legs as he gazed at her.
The peach blossoms blew, fragrant. Their sillohetes were hazy, creating a dream like scene.
Once all the needles were accurately inserted into the acupuncture points, Baili Hongzhuang spoke up, “The next part is going to be painful. If you can’t hold on, don’t be afraid to yell.”
Dibei Chen nodded slightly, “I’ll be okay. Let’s start.”
Hearing his words, Baili Hongzhaung’s inner qi burst out. Her right hand waved a silver needle, causing all the acupuncture needles began to tremble.
