Chapter 229 – Just want to act shameless, what can you do about it
Wants to see her?
After Chu Qing-Yan had eaten and drunk her full, she felt as if her brain capacity wasn’t enough, so she subconsciously looked toward Big Block of Ice.
Xiao Xu picked up a napkin and wiped at the corner of her mouth. “You saved a youth in the dungeon who forgot his own name and family history.”
Chu Qing-Yan suddenly remembered and cheerfully said. “Big Block of Ice, it was thanks to him, otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to save so many children by myself.”
“En.” He remembered that youth. Other children were all afraid and panicked, only he stood on the side not saying a word. His gaze was firm, something rarely seen in a youth his age.
“Earth Spirit, let him in!” Chu Qing-Yan didn’t think much of it and let Earth Spirit bring the person in.
“Big Block of Ice, I’m full. I don’t want to eat anymore!” Chu Qing-Yan turned and said to him.
Xiao Xu waved his hand and let people take away the little table and the leftover food. And at this time, Huang Yi entered carrying a bowl of medicine. “Highness, this is something Honorable Air Spirit asked this servant to bring over. He said it is something to soothe the nerves and calm the spirit.”
Chu Qing-Yan shot a glance at that steaming blackish medicinal soup, her entire face wrinkled into the shape of a bitter melon. In a low voice she pleaded. “Big Block of Ice, can I not drink it?”
Although Air Spirit did this out of kindness, but in the nearly one year worth of time, hadn’t she drank enough medicine?
But Xiao Xu used action to refuse her request. He swirled the spoon in the soup and dispersed some of the steam before scooping a mouthful and placing it by her mouth. Using a tone that was indisputable, he said. “Good medicine tastes bitter, open your mouth.”
Okay! She could only obediently swallow it.
And just at this moment, Earth Spirit brought that youth in. Seeing the two people’s interaction, Earth Spirit turned his head slightly away. The image of that aloof and reserved master in his heart ah! While that youth narrowed his eyes, turned and was about to leave.
“Hey, where are you going?” While Chu Qing-Yan swallowed a mouthful of medicine soup, from the corner of her eyes she saw that youth was about to leave and immediately yelled out.
Hearing that familiar voice, that youth’s footsteps halted as he looked toward her. With some uncertainty, he said. “You are the Chu Yan from that night?”
Faced with the young lady’s light and easy smile, her beautiful hair was draped softly over her shoulder, giving off an indescribable gentleness. Clear eyes glowing with hope, the pretty face that didn’t need cosmetics made her hard to forget.
Chu Qing-Yan, seeing him hesitantly sizing her up, lowered her head to look at her clothing. At this time, her long hair was loose and she was wearing a white gown, this was clothing she made according to modern style. But it was criticized by Big Block of Ice as too revealing, however there was nothing wrong with it ah.
Immediately after, she patted her forehead and smilingly explained. “That’s right, I’m Chu Yan, in man’s clothing I’m Chu Yan. In woman’s clothing I’m Chu Qing-Yan.”
Maybe it was because she smiled too radiantly, Xiao Xu couldn’t help but scoop up another spoonful of medicinal soup for her to drink. Seeing her brows puckered up again, only then was he satisfied and he extended a plum to her lips.
It turned out she was a female.
That night when she was in male clothing, she gave off a pure, handsome and delicate aura, that was quick-witted and smart. Now in female clothing, her magnificent skin without makeup was like a pampered flower.
That youth didn’t know why he was somewhat annoyed as if somewhat regretful. But he also had some more perseverance.
Chu Qing-Yan was suddenly attracted by his contradictory expressions. “Is it a problem? It’s convenient for me to move about outside wearing male clothing. Oh that’s right, why are you looking for me? Is there something difficult that you are having issues with?”
Hearing this, that youth finally recalled his wandering thoughts. Originally he had already prepared a rough draft of things to say. When he saw her again, everything became chaotic. In the end he bit his tooth and kneeled down.
“I want to ask young master Chu, no, Miss Chu to offer me shelter.”
Chu Qing-Yan was scared by his kneeling full of heavy meaning, her eyes turned to the person at her side. But Big Block of Ice had an expression of it’s your matter, you decide. She puffed up her cheeks. What was Big Block of Ice silently angry about? Then she immediately turned to look at the person on the ground.
“Is it because you couldn’t find your family, couldn’t remember who you are so you came to look for me?” After thinking, Chu Qing-Yan felt this was the only possibility, so she said. “You don’t have to worry, I will arrange people to help you look for your family. I will also give you enough silver to live on, what do you think about this?”
That youth shook his head. “I don’t want to look for them, maybe I’m just an orphan.”
His tone had some sorrow and Chu Qing-Yan couldn’t help but look toward him. At this time, he lifted his head and a trace of hope appeared in his grape- like black pupil. “Can I ask Miss Chu to offer me shelter?”
He looked like a lost puppy that was longing to receive some warmth. Chu Qing-Yan couldn’t help but ask. “Why me?”
“Because Miss’s words, actions and manner convinced me. Maybe following by Miss’s side, I could benefit from it.” He said it stressing each word, as if trying to let her know his sincerity.
Chu Qing-Yan once again looked at the person at her side. This was the first time someone wanted to follow her, so she couldn’t suppress the excitement in her heart. But she didn’t forget her identity, moreover this type of matter should be decided by Big Block of Ice, since he was the master of the household. So she used her eyes to ask for his opinion.
Originally Xiao Xu, seeing the two conversing so smoothly, had a strange feeling in his heart that he couldn’t describe. Now that that youth took the initiative to ask her to keep him, and clearly the little fellow was moved, his heart felt even more uncomfortable. But when the little fellow didn’t rush to decide and looked to him for his opinion, that uncomfortable feeling vanished like smoke in thin air.
She could sense that Big Block of Ice didn’t seem to be in favor of it. She immediately hugged his arm, stopping what he was about to say. Then she turned to say to that youth. “You should withdraw first, I’ll give you my answer in a while.”
That youth took a glance at Xiao Xu who treated him coldly since the beginning and immediately withdrew.
Earth Spirit’s acute senses told him the little consort had something to say to master, so he clearly brought the people inside the room to withdraw. He didn’t even forget to close the door to the room.
“This king does not approve.”
Before she could say anything, Xiao Xu had said his opinion in advance.
She had a distinctly puzzled expression on her face as she asked. “Why?”
“His origins are dubious, his identity is a mystery. This kind of person, this king won’t allow to be at your side.” Xiao Xu pushed away her hand and said this with a prudent expression.
Seeing Big Block of Ice push away her hand, Chu Qing-Yan became somewhat anxious. Her cocoon- like hand can’t grab onto his sleeves, in the end disregarding everything she sat on his body. Her cocooned hands wrapped around his neck with an expression of “I’m going to act shameless, what can you do to me?” appearance.
“Get down!” Xiao Xu said in a frosty tone.
“Don’t want, don’t want, I don’t want. Only if you promise me to let him stay!” Chu Qing-Yan insisted on arguing with him to the end.
“Making trouble, can you feel assured leaving this kind of person at your side?” Xiao Xu was somewhat angry.
“I feel he won’t harm me!” In the prison, she was able to sense his character wasn’t bad. While walking in the passageway, there was a child whose leg went soft so he carried the child on his back to walk to the end.
Moreover, she felt that if she let this person go, she would regret it later.
“Chu Qing-Yan!” Xiao Xu felt there was an indescribable anger that was starting to rise in his heart. If it was anyone else, he would have already thrown her down. But he could not make a move against this person ah!
Clearly sensing that Big Block of Ice was angry, she lifted her head. Seeing his brows were wrinkled tightly, she had some regrets. She wanted to use her hand to soothe him, but her five fingers couldn’t be seen in the cocoon. In the end, she leaned her body forward to kiss between his brows.
When her soft lips met his ice cold skin.
The two young bodies trembled.
