Chapter 544: Passing by
Chu Shao Bai did not pause a single step as he carried her into the carriage. He had prepared a special couch for her there that was soft and thick.
He placed her on the couch and pulled out a blanket over her before carefully fixing her hair.
She forcefully bit her lips, forcing herself to retain a bit of consciousness, not letting herself fall asleep.
“What kind of medicine did you give me!” She asked with wide bulging eyes. It was clear that she was using all her strength, with her voice only being a whisper, sounding very weak.
He tenderly gazed at her and that pure smile was as gentle and harmless as before, “It’s just a bit of medicine that helps you sleep, it causes no harm to your body. You just need to have a good rest, I will take care of everything. Ning’er, I have never wanted to harm you.”
He lowered his head and gently kissed her forehead.
Chen Ning did not hear the rest of his words before she lost consciousness.
Chu Shao Bai tested her breathing and found that her breath and pulse were both normal.
He knew that the medicine he used had worked, so he relaxed. He took out a bag from under the seat and opened it to take out several sets of rough clothing. He quickly took off his white robes and replaced it with a rough robe. Then he also brought out a pill that he rubbed all over his face.
After a short while, that beautiful young man in flawless white clothes became a yellow faced, rough clothed driver.
He believed that even if Chen Ning woke up, she wouldn’t be able to recognize him right away.
He revealed a satisfied smile as he jumped onto the carriage and drove it out of the valley.
He wanted to leave before it became dark. He had to leave before the emperor and Empress Dowager sent people after them, so he had to bring her as far as possible.
When the carriage left the mountain, he saw a grey robed figure suddenly appear on the road in front of him and his heart sunk.
That grey robed person was not just anyone, it was Zhui Feng.
Damn! Wasn’t this fellow’s acupuncture point poked by him! How did he appear here?
Chu Shao Bai lowered his head and forcefully cracked the horse whip, speaking in a rough voice, “Let’s give it a try.”
Zhui Feng looked him over before moving to the side.
Very good, this fellow did not recognize him.
Chu Shao Bai was very confident in his disguise.
He drove the horse carriage past Zhui Feng. He deliberately pretended to be clumsy, pretending to be a driver that did not know any martial arts while secretly rejoicing. He had spent a lot of thought on this horse carriage. The outside looked just like a normal horse carriage, but the inside was completely different.
The horse carriage left the mountain road and returned to the official road. Chu Shao Bai finally turned around to look and saw no trace of Zhui Feng. He couldn’t help letting out a sigh of relief as he revealed a faint smile on his face.
He turned back and whipped the horse’s butt. With a smile, he said to himself, “Zhui Feng, ah Zhui Feng, you are known as being unparalleled in tracking, but you still can’t compare to me?”
Thinking of how he had fooled Zhui Feng’s eyes, his heart was filled with pride.
“Your highness King Jing An, aren’t you looking down on this subordinate too much?” A faint voice with a trace of mockery came from behind him.
Chu Shao Yang’s hand holding the horse whip froze in the air.
He slowly turned back and saw Zhui Feng.
Zhui Feng was sitting on the carriage with his two feet dangling in front of the door. His black leather shoes were covered in mud as they swayed back and forth.
When did this fellow get on the horse carriage! How did he not notice at all!
“Zhui Feng, what do you want?” Chu Shao Bai quickly calmed down and asked in a cold voice.
