Chapter 631: Marrying the pheasant or the rabbit
He fed her mouthful of soup one after the other, moving very carefully and gently. He was completely different from that violent and wild person from before.
But Chen Ning knew even though wild beasts showed their gentle sides sometimes, that did not stop them from eating people.
After she ate and drank enough, she closed her eyes to rest up.
Although she closed her eyes, she could feel his gaze on her face, not moving at all.
“Your highness, why do you keep looking at me? If it is because I saved you, you don’t have to mind it at all. I don’t like owing people, so I saved you because you saved me, we don’t owe each other anything.”
She opened her eyes and met his gaze.
“You saved me because you couldn’t bear let me die and that is because you have begun to like me.” He suddenly said, speaking in a certain voice.
“…..” Chen Ning almost couldn’t help spitting out. She stared at him, not understanding where this man’s mysterious self confidence came from.
“Your highness, I don’t……”
She did not even get to finish before he covered her mouth. His large palm was tightly placed on her lips, not letting her speak.
He revealed a smile that was confident and complacent, “I know you won’t admit it, you West Chu women all say one thing, but think another. Your mouth says no, but your heart says yes, not like our East Qin women at all. Like is like, love is love. When you marry me, I won’t allow you to be like this anymore, understand?”
When did I promise to marry you?
Her eyes went wide as she stared at him.
“Are you stunned with happiness hearing me say I would marry you? Look at how big your eyes are, are you very happy? I promise you, I’m willing to marry you as my only woman. You will become my princess and from now on, you will be able to enjoy my prestige and honour, with everyone looking up to you. Your current husband Chu Shao Yang will also look up to you from beneath your feet.”
He revealed a smile filled with energy, looking very high spirited.
Chen Ning didn’t know whether to laugh or cry hearing this.
He released the hand covering her mouth and held her hand, stroking the bandage on her wrist. He looked at her without moving his gaze, revealing a gentle gaze.
With a serious expression, he said, “Since I have been poisoned, the poison has acted up almost every day. If I can’t soak in a sulfur hot spring, I need to drink hot blood to suppress the poison. My servants have always prepared the blood of various animals. There was chicken blood, duck blood, and goat blood. I don’t even know how many animals I have drunk from. But there has never been anyone that has fed their blood to me, you are the only one. My heart was thinking in that time that if I didn’t die, I would marry this girl. I will always keep my words!”
So it was because of this!
If she knew it was like this, she would not have used her blood to save him. She should have found the blood of an animal for him to drink at that time, for example a rabbit or a pheasant. If he wanted to repay them, he could marry a pheasant or a rabbit!
“Your highness, why didn’t you say this earlier? Ai, how could I have not thought of catching a rabbit or a pheasant? If I knew their blood could also be used, I wouldn’t have used my own blood. Cutting my wrist really hurt and I’m filled with regret right now. If I could turn back time, I would definitely feed you a rabbit’s blood and never feed you my blood. Ai, I never thought of that at that time, this is all stupid!”
