Chapter 169: Jealousy
“Alright, it doesn’t matter if you won’t say it, it isn’t that important. Hey, Xiao Bai, you have only taught me qinggong heart chants, but what should I practice first?”
Her eyes seemed very vast and sparkled like water. Her face was also revealed a full smile.
Chu Shao Bai couldn’t help being embarrassed over raising the idea. He quickly stored away the distractions of his heart and said with a serious face, “I will teach you some proper martial arts, you have to learn properly.”
One teaching and one learning, not noticing time flying by.
The sun rose to the east and the sky filled with light.
Chu Shao Bai said, “This will be enough for you to practice for the next three months. As long as you work hard, you will be able to reach the small success realm of qinggong.
Her intelligence far surpassed his expectations.
The things that he had taught in the past four hours had taken him an entire three days to memorize, but she had perfectly remembered it all after hearing it once.
“Xiao Bai, thank you.”
Chen Ning felt like she had benefited a lot from this night. She raised her head and revealed a faint smile.
“Humph, if you can’t learn the Duckweed Floating Across the Water Step in three months, then this master will expel you!” Chu Shao Bai said with a serious face.
“A smart teacher creates a great disciple. If I can’t learn it, then it isn’t because my skills are bad, rather it is because your teaching is bad. It’s low class teaching!” She laughed and made a face at him.
Chu Shao Bai didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
He could never win in arguments with her.
Chen Ning used her arms as a pillow and lied down on the grass. She watched as the stars began to disappear and night turned to day.
He just sat beside her, watching the quiet lake.
But in his heart, he was not calm at all.
He had already decided never to see her again, but he could not control his feet nor his heart.
He could not help secretly checking in on her every night, wandering outside her window, but never taking a step into her room.
That night, she had used the cruelest method to reject him.
He was a man and had a man’s pride and dignity. He would never beg for anything from her!
If he did not see her critical situation tonight and how she had taught his third brother a ruthless lesson, he would not have appeared again.
He had wanted to save her and then leave, but because of the one sentence of concern she showed, his hope was raised once again.
Her showing concern for him, does that represent that in her heart, other than his third brother, there was also a place for him?
“Hee, hee.” It was unknown what she was thinking off, but she suddenly giggled.
“What is so funny?” He turned around and saw her laughing which made him reveal a faint smile as he spoke.
“I was thinking of your third brother.” She smiled as she looked over.
Chu Shao Bai’s face turned dark and his chest felt like it was stuffed with cotton.
His heart and eyes were filled with her figure, but even though she was beside him, she was still thinking of his third brother? Moreover, why would she laugh so happily while mentioning his third brother?
“Don’t you hate my third brother? Why would you think of him?” He said with a cold look on his face.
His heart ached after being bitten by a poisonous snake known as jealousy.
His third brother was so heartless to her, so the love in her heart for his third brother should have turned to hate. She had clearly said she hated his third brother and it should be because of her deep love that this hate developed.
Otherwise, why would she be unwilling to accept him and stay in this prison like king’s palace?
His hands gripped onto the grass on the ground and unconsciously began to use force. Soon, his hands were completely covered in grass juice.
How could Chen Ning know his complex thoughts? She giggled and said, “Speaking of that, I still need to thank you.”
