Chapter 129: Immortal coming down to earth
He had spent a lot of time to dress himself up in that kind of appearance. He had even scared himself when he looked in the mirror.
He never would have thought that not only did he not scare her, he had been scared by her.
“It’s not that I’m not scared of ghosts, it’s just your ghost disguise was too fake. Next time, let me give you a few pointers.” Chen Ning smiled and said.
“I’m not playing anymore, it’s not fun at all!” The ghost broke free of her grip. His body flashed and he jumped out the window.
After the initial fright, Xiao Ru stood up from the ground, but she was still trembling.
She saw the red tongue and messy hair on the ground and suddenly realized something.
“Young miss, that ghost was fake?”
“Of course it was fake. With this kind of skill, one could only fool a child. Only a stinky little brat that hasn’t grown up yet would think that it is fun to play this kind of trick on someone.”
Chen Ning pursed her lips and said.
“Try and call me stinky little brat one more time!”
Chu Shao Bai’s voice suddenly came from the door. The voice was very low and filled with anger.
The moonlight shined in through the window and seemed to create a glow on his flawless face. His delicate eyebrows were bathed in the moonlight and the night wind gently blew across his robes. He was dressed in a long robe that did not have a single imperfection, making him seem like a deity descending from the heavens.
“Young miss, look quickly. It’s an immortal descending upon the earth!” Xiao Ru was shocked as she took in a cold breath. She clutched Chen Ning’s sleeve as she excitedly shouted.
Chen Ning couldn’t help laughing and Chu Shao Bai’s lips couldn’t help twitching.
He looked over at Xiao Ru with his glittering peach blossom eyes and he saw Xiao Ru’s face reveal a stunned expression. Her heart ran like a deer and she thought in her heart: God, there is actually someone this beautiful in this world!
Although she didn’t say anything, once Chen Ning looked at her, she could guess what she was thinking from her expression. She couldn’t help biting her lips.
“Xiao Bai, my maid has shallow eyelids. If you keep smiling at her, I cannot guarantee what will happen later.” She revealed a faint smile.
Chu Shao Bai was prepared to tease Xiao Ru, but a chill appeared in his heart. The smile on his face immediately disappeared and he revealed a serious expression.
“Little girl, it’s better if you obediently go to sleep.”
He pointed to the right and a wisp of wind sounded out. He pressed down right on Xiao Ru’s sleeping point.
Xiao Ru’s eyes closed and she fell backwards.
Chu Shao Bai flicked his white sleeve and Xiao Ru seemed like she had been picked up by something. She was then delivered right onto the bed.
“Good martial arts!” Chen Ning couldn’t help giving him a thumbs up.
Chu Shao Bai rolled his eyes and disdainfully said, “This isn’t martial arts, this is just a little trick. Do you want to see some real martial arts? Then you should beg me. If you beg me to do it, I’ll show you a single trick.”
Chen Ning revealed a smile, “Then I won’t see it.”
“Humph!” Chu Shao Bai gave a cold snort and then raised his head to look around the drafty wooden hut. He clicked his tongue twice, “Little hedgehog, aren’t the quills on your body very powerful? How did you end up in a place where rabbits won’t even go to poop? Has my third brother been mistreating you these past few days? Has he been hitting you and insulting you? You can tell me and I’ll help you vent your anger!”
His eyes sparkled as he looked at Chen Ning. A trace of concern appeared in his eyes, but it only lasted a second. It was so fast that Chen Ning couldn’t see it clearly.
“No need.” Chen Ning shook her head.
“Why?” Chu Shao Bai knit his brows together. He wasn’t used to his goodwill being rejected.
“Because this is a grudge between him and me, so I don’t want anyone to interfere. No matter what he does to me, I will remember it all without forgetting a single thing. Everything that he has given me, I will take back and I will even add on interest.” Chen Ning raised her brows.
