Chapter 271: If this happiness could last a lifetime
“Thinking about it, it’s all your fault! I had a chance to win the contest, but you had to dislocate my arm, causing me to be unable to draw an arrow! I was talking about how I was going to punish you, then I will……make you help me win this contest! No matter what methods you have to use, you need to make it so that I win!”
Chen Ning rolled her eyes. She just had to rely on Chu Shao Bai now.
Although her words seemed irrational, Chu Shao Bai was dumbfounded and had no way of replying.
Of course, he wanted her to win, but this grand hunt was personally arranged by the eldest princess and cheating was not allowed. If she wanted to win this hunt in front of everyone, this was as hard as ascending to heaven.
But if she lost, then she would be locked inside the palace forever, becoming a slave for his third brother.
Thinking of this, his heart twisted in pain.
No, she could not lose!
But what method could he think of that would allow her to win?
Chu Shao Bai raised his head and looked at the room, silently pondering it.
“Ke, ke, Xiao Bai, after fighting with Xiao Hei for an entire night, you should be thirsty, right? I’ve prepared a special soup for you, do you want to try it?”
Chen Ning’s eyes fell onto the large bowl of pepper water and a mischievous smile appeared on her face.
Chu Shao Bai’s face lit up and he said, “I do, of course I do.”
But when he saw what Chen Ning was looking at, his eyebrows fell and he had a crying expression as he said, “You wouldn’t want me to drink this, right?”
“What this thing, that thing. You killed all my cranes and fish, but I don’t want you to repay me. As long as you drink this bowl, then I’ll forgive me. Otherwise, never appear in front of me again.” Chen Ning said with a serious expression.
“Alright, I’ll drink it.” Chu Shao Bai steeled his heart.
Isn’t it just drinking pepper soup?
Compared to never seeing her, it was not even worth mentioning!
He lifted the bowl and drank it in large mouthfuls. That beautiful white face instantly turned completely red and tears began to flow.
“Hey, Xiao Bai, you’re really drinking it!” Chen Ning was shocked. She quickly tried to take the bowl back, but she saw that he had already drank half of the bowl already. Seeing that completely red face, she couldn’t help feeling angry and finding it funny.
“I was just teasing you and you treated like it was real! Drink some water already.” Chen Ning quickly brought over a large cup of water which Chu Shao Bai drank in a single breath.
His eyes were as wet as a little deer fawn, but it kept staring at her. He said in a serious voice, “Not to mention pepper water, even if it was arsenic, I would drink it without any hesitation as long as you ask me to do it.”
He was no longer stuttering and speaking in a clear and calm voice, not looking away for a long time.
“Xiao Bai…..” Chen Ning’s throat felt like it had been blocked by something while her heart felt sweet and sour at once. A kind of indescribable feeling surged inside of her.
She just stared at him, not avoiding his eyes which was filled with affection.
For a while, her mind flashed with many pictures of him.
Him carefully placing the ice lotus in front of her, him holding her as they flew across the ceiling, and sitting beside her on top of the imperial palace at night, calmly talking to her. He had left the image of a cute little animal in her mind.
Every image left a warm feeling inside of her. These were the first happy and warm memories she had since coming to this world.
It was all given to her by him!
If she could have this kind of happy life, it would be a very good thing.
She revealed a faint smile.
