Chapter 585: There are snakes
Her dress style suited her well, neither too flashy or too simple. It was the style that a proper lady should have.
Liu Wan Ting shyly nodded, “This little girl is surnamed Liu. When this young master sends my back, my father will surely heavily reward this young master for saving this young girl’s life.”
Her words had deeper meaning to them. She wanted to see if Chu Shao Bai would treat her differently after learning her status.
If Chu Shao Bai revealed the slightest bit of love or hate, she would not like him anymore.
Who would have thought that Chu Shao Bai’s expression did not change at all. He kept his cold appearance, like she was a thousand miles away.
He just gave a slight nod.
“So you’re miss Liu.” Then he said nothing else.
Liu Wan Ting liked this answer and was disappointed. She bit her lips as she followed three steps behind Chu Shao Bai, pondering the background of this white clothed youth while walking.
She had asked Chu Shao Bai’s surname before, but Chu Shao Bai completely ignored her, so she was embarrassed to ask again.
But if she didn’t ask for the other side’s identity, how could she see him again?
He clearly had no intentions towards her, so how could she make him pay attention to her?
“Young master, are you a citizen of the capital?” She tried starting a conversation. Hearing the accent from Chu Shao Bai’s words, she already knew he was someone from the capital.
“Un.” Chu Shao Bai did not respond and responded with an indifferent un sound.
If he didn’t care about her father, Historian Liu’s face, he wouldn’t have even made a sound.
Liu Wan Ting was a bit stuck. She was an unmarried woman and she had already taken the initiative to talk to him three times, but he had ignored her every time. If she wasn’t interested in him, her proud young girl’s heart would have been very hurt.
If she kept talking, she would be considered too unreserved and have a thin face.
She was also very proud, being spoiled by many people. If it wasn’t for her interest in him, she would not have suffered this indignation.
The two of them walked with one in front and one behind, both of them thinking their own thoughts and no one spoke.
Chu Shao Bai did not want to say half a word to her. When he heard that she had finally stopped talking, his ears were soothed by the silence.
He wanted to send her back as soon as possible, taking this responsibility from himself.
“Ah! There’s a snake!” Suddenly, Liu Wan Ting’s shout came from behind him.
Chu Shao Bai quickly turned around and instantly appeared by Liu Wan Ting’s side, asking, “Where is the snake?”
They were currently in a dark alley, with only a single dim lantern hanging in front of a house not far away, dimly lighting the alley.
He looked around several times and did not find a single trace of a snake.
He just saw Liu Wan Ting point to a straw rope hanging down from the wall with an apologetic face. In a soft voice, she said, “It was my mistake. It wasn’t a snake, it was just a rope.”
Chu Shao Bai couldn’t help looking at her before turning to walk forward.
Liu Wan Ting gave an “aiyo” sound and he turned around. He saw that she was kneeling down, rubbing her ankle with a pained expression on her face.
“I’m sorry, I sprained my foot.” She did not wait for him to speak before saying with an apologetic face, “But it doesn’t matter, I can still keep walking.”
She stood up and limped as she followed him.
Chu Shao Bai ignored her and continued walking forward.
But he heard her footsteps became slower behind him until he couldn’t hear it anymore.
He turned around again and saw Liu Wan Ting with tears in her eyes, pitifully looking at him.
