Chapter 291 – Little fellow, this king is awake
As she continued hesitating, the water gradually turned cold.
She couldn’t continue to delay.
As a result, she tore a stripe of ribbon and covered her eyes. Afterwards, with one hand propping up the hand of the person in the barrel, she used the buoyancy of the water and pulled him up. Immediately after, she wanted to drag him out of the wooden barrel.
And the moment Chu Qing-Yan covered her eyes, the person with his eyes tightly closed slowly opened his eyes. His eyes were full of disbelief, feelings of being emotionally moved, tenderness and doting…
His hand extended out to grasp the wooden barrel as he unobtrusively lifted himself out of the barrel.
Chu Qing-Yan felt that this time carrying him, he seemed to be a lot lighter than last time. Moreover, even with her eyes covered, she seemed to be able to find the position of the bed.
After she placed the person on the bed, Chu Qing-Yan didn’t dare to immediately take off the blindfold. Rather, she picked up the clean clothes placed on the side of the bed and prepared to help Big Block of Ice change into new clothes.
Xiao Xu’s gaze never left her, seeing how she had used up all her strength to support him, seeing her dim-wittedly fumbling about, seeing her clumsily wanting to help him change clothes, to say he wasn’t moved would be a lie. Wearing that blindfold covered up her pair of large, bright and clear eyes. The wide ribbon like cloth made her face seem even more delicate. The loose jet-black hair that was scattered over her shoulder just happened to reach her waist, giving off a slight luster. The male clothes made her body look even more slender, nimble and beautiful. He remembered that he hadn’t looked properly at the little fellow for a while. In this period of time, she seemed to have grown taller again and even thinner. A burst of tenderness and pity emerged in his heart.
And at this time, she was already feeling over with her hand, wanting to help him put on some clothes. Under this situation where she couldn’t sense anything, he cooperated by lifting his hands and feet. Chu Qing-Yan’s pair of eyes were blindfolded so she couldn’t see this beautiful painting of a beautiful male in front of her. She also couldn’t see the behavior of the beautiful male at this time. She was still immensely proud of the fact that she had the gift of being able to do things with her eyes blindfolded.
After she helped change his underwear and undershirt, she then removed the blindfold. And before her pair of eyes could see the light again, Xiao Xu had already closed his eyes.
Chu Qing-Yan quickly finished changing the rest of his clothes, then covered him with a thick quilt.
Successfully accomplished this matter!
She felt tired, enough to last for a lifetime.
She lowered her head and discovered Big Block of Ice’s complexion wasn’t as pale as before, but he still made one feel distress.
“Big Block of Ice, the medicinal bath is very successful, we now have almost three months worth of time. Then we can set off for the country of Jiang. You must quickly wake up!” She leaned over to his ear and said this softly.
After standing up, Chu Qing-Yan didn’t stay idle, rather she opened the door to the room and said to the people outside. “Medicinal bath completed, so come in and help us tidy up.”
Crash, one, two, three…
All of a sudden, seven heads popped out. The corner of Chu Qing-Yan’s mouth twiched, so it turned out all of them were hiding away to watch. So crafty!
“Suddenly recalled that this subordinate must go prepare things for departure, first to withdraw.” Fire Spirit rubbed his head and nonchalantly turned around. Then he ran away like a wisp of smoke.
“This subordinate also has matters that will occupy me.” Earth Spirit gave a light cough, then turned and left.
“This subordinate needs to go see if they have picked up the people yet. It has been so long, how come I still don’t see a person’s shadow…” Wood Spirit mumbled, the soles of his feet seemed to be greased as he slipped away.
“There certainly won’t be enough medicinal herbs, this subordinate will go look for Sha Feng to ask for a bit more.” Air Spirit had his hand on his lips, then he urgently ran away as if on fire.
Chu Qing-Yan’s eyes turned to look at Cheng Yan-Luo who had a mocking expression. She only saw her lift up her pair of hands as she said innocently. “I don’t have the intent to escape oh. I’m going to see what the result of the medicinal bath for your Highness is.”
Cheng Yan-Luo slowly strolled in, Chu Qing-Yan shrugged her shoulders and turned sideways to let her pass.
As a result——
“My god, Chu Qing-Yan, give this old mother an explanation. Did this room get flooded?”
Chu Qing-Yan pursed her lips and smiled, then she beat it.
“Chu Qing-Yan, stop for me!”
Whoever stops is a fool!
Chu Qing-Yan’s mood was very good. Don’t think she didn’t know that she had been tricked into giving this medicinal bath. This was called a gentleman’s revenge, several hours is not too late!
Cheng Yan-Luo had her hands at her hips, she looked at the people that ran away without leaving a shadow. She could only somewhat helplessly resign herself to fate and call people to tidy up.
This tidying up fees will be deducted from you guys’ examination fees!
Chu Qing-Yan ran out of the medicinal hall, she kept running until she stopped in an area with trees.
She had her back to a tree trunk and groped around in her sleeves. Then she took out a bamboo flute.
Her hand caressed the flute’s body for a short while before she placed it by her lips and blew.
The graceful and serene flute sound echoed inside the forest. After a while, she heard the sound of clothes brushing by leaves. The corner of her lips hooked up slightly, he came.
“Hello little girl. Aren’t you taking care of your Highness, how could you have the idle time and carefree mood to summon this young master?” This graceful voice came from above her head, It carried a faint sour flavor, only he himself could hear this.
Chu Qing-Yan left the tree trunk, lifted her head up to look at the person on the branch, then somewhat curiously asked. “I say Dongting, how come you always use this method to appear? Not a bit novel!”
Dongting Wang-Yu raised an eyebrow, jumped down and complained, saying. “You think this young master wants to? Isn’t it because everytime it’s just so coincidental? Not a bit in keeping with this young master’s temperament.”
“People like you have temperament?” Chu Qing-Yan rolled her eyes.
Being mocked by a little girl six years younger, Dongting Wang-Yu felt there was no light on his face. But because she was six years younger than him, he was an adult that won’t bicker with a child.
“Seeing you still have the mood to joke with me, this proves your family’s Highness is out of danger.” Dongting Wang-Yu’s pair of hands leaned back, his entire person leaned on the tree trunk. His attitude was extremely carefree and unrestrained, while also carrying a bit of evildoer’s charm.
Chu Qing-Yan put away the smile on her face, and a serious expression emerged in her eyes. “Strictly speaking, ought to say temporarily out of danger.”
“Oh?” Dongting Wang-Yu looked toward her, somewhat surprised. “How to say? Could there still be a mishap?”
Thinking of this, if Xiao Xu can’t live for more than a few days, then he would grab his sword to force his way into the medicinal hall. Force him to take the thing out.
This thought had just emerged when it was interrupted by Chu Qing-Yan’s words.
“Snake Kiss poison originally had no solution. Fortunately, we found a famous doctor and got a prescription. Only that to solve this poison, we must find the three rarely seen medicinal herbs in this world. Now we still lack two out of the three. One herb’s whereabouts are unknown, the other will be very difficult to obtain. My heart is very worried.” Chu Qing-Yan felt her head was somewhat heavy, she couldn’t help but lean against the tree trunk, her face full of worry.
“Therefore you asked this young master to come out. Is it to ask this young master to help you search for medicinal herbs?” Innate superior sense let Dongting Wang-Yu blurt this out without thinking.
Chu Qing-Yan shook her head. “I want to say good-bye to you, because a few days later, I will leave here to go search for the medicinal herbs.”
As for her not forgetting to say good-bye before she leaving, Dongting Wang-Yu stared blankly at this. He put away his laughing expression. “Then how do you know I’ll be here?”
Chu Qing-Yan’s lips curved but she didn’t answer.
Want to ask her why? She also couldn’t tell, maybe she had this suspicion in her heart and also some expectation!
Seeing she didn’t answer, Dongting Wang-Yu changed the topic. “What medicinal herb are you missing?”
“Keeping Passion leaf, now we still don’t know where it is——” While speaking, her tone became softer.
Dongting Wang-Yu felt it was somewhat fishy, so he turned his head to look. He saw that little body sliding down the tree trunk.
