Xiao Xi hugged his neck with both hands. Her flushed-red face rubbed against Feng Lingran’s chest. She let out an uncomfortable mutter. The temperature of her body did not reduce, but it seemed to become worse after being covered by the blanket.
Feng Lingran looked down at the little girl in her arms.There was a strange look in his eyes, as if there was fire burning in it. His long fingers were placed on her smooth and small waist. The heat of the girl’s body brought back Feng Lingran’s rationale.
The fire in Feng Lingran’s eyes faded, and it was replaced by concern.
“If the fever persists, her lungs will be damaged, and I am afraid she might not make it.”
Wan Siyu’s words appeared in Feng Lingran’s head again.
Feng Lingran frowned tightly. Suddenly, he carried the girl in his arms and walked toward the bath barrel. He glanced at the cold water in the barrel, took off his belt and robe, and sat in the bath barrel with the young girl still in his arms.
For a short moment, a mist of gurgling water floated above the bath barrel.
The little girl stopped fiddling in Feng Lingran’s arms and slept soundly……
Feng Lingran’s long eyelashes drooped slightly. He looked at the girl sleeping in his arms and started stroking her smooth and flawless back with his long fingers. Her body temperature was close to the water temperature. She was not as feverish as before.
Feng Lingran smirked, “Little fox, I sacrificed so much for you. How are you going to repay me when you recover?”
After a pause, his sight fell on the girl’s chest. They were as beautiful as the mountain peaks; they also shined like the jade as if they were the mountain range. Although they were still small, they were still delicate enough, Feng Lingran found himself catching his breath and dimmed his eyes, “You little fox who has become demon, I just feel like having you right now. ”
A night passed, and it started drizzling outside.
Xiao Xi’s slender eyelashes trembled and she slowly opened her eyes. Her body felt like it was drained of energy and her head felt groggy. What happened to me?
The door opened and someone came in. Xiao Xi propped up from the bed with her hands, trying to sit up, but it was like her bones were soft. She did not have any strength.
Someone hugged her shoulders and let her sit up straight, letting her back lay against a wide chest.
Xiao Xi’s eyelashes fluttered up, raised her face slightly, and saw Feng Lingran’s unparalleled handsome face.
Is this my illusion? Why is Feng Lingran here?
The sound of footsteps came closer to the bed and a bowl of medicine was brought to Xiao Xi.
“For this medicine, I hiked over the mountains in the middle of the night and found it at the gully in Dongyue Mountain. I’m so exhausted.” After finding the herbs, he still could not rest as he still had to decoct the herbs.
If he had known this would happen, he would definitely regret doing it!
Xiao Xi’s gaze fell on Wan Siyu’s body. His white robes had a few dirty spots, his eyes were blood-shot, and he looked very worn-out.
Feng Lingran took the bowl from Wan Siyu’s hand. The medicine which was just decocted was boiling hot. He moved his fingers slightly, and a gust of cold air surrounded the bowl.
Wan Siyu’s eyes suddenly darkened. He watched Feng Lingran’s hands releasing cold air. He wanted to speak but he didn’t.
Feng Lingran kept his internal force, placed the bowl on his lips and tasted it. The temperature was moderately warm. He then moved the bowl toward Xiao Xi’s lips.
“It’s not hot, drink it!”
Xiao Xi’s eyelashes trembled slightly, and gave Feng Lingran a weak smile, “I didn’t notice it before, but you are very considerate.”
“So did you fall in love with me? Hmm?”
Feng Lingran raised his brows slightly and smiled.
Xiao Xi’s smile froze and twitched slightly. Why is Feng Lingran’s attitude changed?
Wan Siyu shuddered and got goosebumps. “Lingran, are you okay? Would you like me to check your pulse too?”
Did Feng Lingran take the wrong medicine? Or did a demon possess him to even speak such corny words?
Feng Lingran glanced at Wan Siyu and it was as if it could pierce his heart. He said coldly, “ Get out.”
Wan Siyu was shocked by the peculiar look in Feng Lingran’s eyes. He suddenly thought of something. His fingers tightened and look worried, “Lingran, is the cold blight starting to get active?”
“Get out.” Feng Lingran’s voice deepened.
Wan Siyu looked at Feng Lingran concernly. Without uttering a single word, he turned and left the room.
Xiao Xi watched Wan Siyu leaving the room and started thinking thoroughly. Clearly, Wan Siyu knew when the cold blight in Feng Lingran’s body started acting up, he would have multiple personalities, but the expression on Wan Siyu’s face felt like he was hiding a secret away.
Feng Lingran’s voice sounded from above. Xiao Xi looked back and opened her mouth.
The medicine was bitter. It was hard to swallow. Xiao Xi grabbed Feng Lingran’s wrist quickly, moved the bowl aside, moved her body out from the bed and vomited the bitter medicine out.
Xiao Xi opened her mouth and stretched her tongue out. Her hand fanned her mouth, “It’s so bitter, really bitter……”
This medicine was too disgusting to drink.
Xiao Xi’s body was grabbed by Feng Lingran, and she was pressed onto the bed. She widened her eyes when she saw his handsome face approaching her. She cried, “Feng Lingran, what are you doing…”
Before she could finish speaking, her mouth was sealed by Feng Lingran, and the medicine was passed from his mouth into her mouth. A force pushed all the medicine into her throat.
Gulp gulp gulp…
The medicine went down Xiao Xi’s throat and she could not tell if it tasted bitter or if it was something else. Xiao Xi’s eyes seemed to be fixed, reflecting the pair of strange yet deep eyes.
Xiao Xi blushed and her face flushed red when he left her lips. She wanted to escape instinctively, but when she moved, she felt that there was a force pressing on her right chest. Immediately, she looked down and saw Feng Lingran’s hand pressing against her. She was flustered, and she got infuriated.
“Feng Lingran, you get…”
Before she could finish speaking, Feng Lingran blocked her mouth, passed the medicine into her mouth, and pushed into her throat. Xiao Xi’s eyes changed slightly, and she bit down ……
An overbearing force caught her soft tongue and pulled it out. Xiao Xi was so shocked as she almost bit her tongue.
A smile flashed across Feng Lingran’s eyes. He tangled both tongues for a while before releasing her.
“Unjust is doomed to destruction. I fed you medicine, but you repay me by taking revenge, eh?”
He took out a handkerchief to wipe his lips. When he saw some remnants of the black medicine at the corner of her lips, he wiped it away for her too.
Xiao Xi’s face blushed so red that it felt like it was bleeding. Her heart pounded like crazy. When she was still a fox before, the most she did was kissing him, but this time, he used the excuse of feeding her medicine to let their tongues tie together.
Xiao Xi fell asleep after taking the medicine.
Feng Lingran got out of bed, stared at Xiao Xi’s mouth quietly, leaned down and gave her a kiss.
Outside the room.
Wan Siyu stood outside until Feng Lingran came out. He watched Feng Lingran close the door and lowered his voice, “Lingran, when did the cold blight act up?”
Wan Siyu vaguely felt that the time for Feng Lingran’s cold blight to act up had shortened. Feng Lingran must have an attack once before, but he Lingran did not tell him about it.
Feng Lingran turned and stared coldly at Wan Siyu. He mocked, “Her blood can cure the poison, but the aroma of her blood caused the poison to act up earlier. Isn’t this what you want?”
Wan Siyu was shocked. He shook his pale face, “I … I didn’t know that the aroma of her blood will cause your poison to act up earlier.” He paused and a murderous intent appeared. “Lingran, her blood is the medicine that can save your life. This time, you can’t go soft on her anymore.”
Feng Lingran’s eyes became as cold as ice. “You try to touch her and we’ll see.”
“Lingran, do you really like her? You’re reluctant to kill her?”
“That’s my business and it has nothing to do with you.”
Wan Siyu suddenly laughed, “I really didn’t expect that the regent of the Eastern Jin Dynasty does not like women, but likes a little fox instead. But in the end, you can’t be with her. Don’t forget, the shorter the time taken for the cold bright to start acting up, the more your personality be aggressive, and soon you will lose your sanity…”
“Quiet.” Feng Lingran said angrily.
“I don’t think the little fox knows that you will be this scary. Do you think she’ll still stay by your side if she knows?”
Suddenly, a gust of wind slashed against Wan Siyu’s face and a strand of hair fell to the ground. Wan Siyu’s was horrified as he saw the madness in Feng Lingran’s eyes. His face was hurting.
“I do not want to hear a single word from you anymore. Get out of my way.”
Wan Siyu looked at Feng Lingran. At that moment, Feng Lingran squeezed his fingers tightly and his fist trembled. He was trying to resist the urge to hit Wan Siyu.
The move just now was just a warning.
A moment later/
“Well you take care of yourself!” As Wan Siyu said that, he turned away and left.
“You better let this thing rot inside your stomach and not tell anyone.”
Wan Siyu’s footstep paused and sneered. Feng Lingran, a guy who’s not afraid of anything, is also afraid of letting the little fox know?
“Let the little fox pour some of her blood in the bowl. Every time your cold blight acts up, drink it. You’ll recover and become normal again.” He paused and continued, “Since you know you are not able to withstand the aroma of her blood, get away from her next time.” Another pause, “I’m going to the Holy Snow Mountain. If I’m lucky, I’ll be able to bring back a thousand-year blood lotus. You’re not willing to let her die, the millenium snow lotus to mix with her blood, then it can suppress the cold blight in your body.”
The next time Xiao Xi woke up again, it was already night time. Her head was lighter than the day and her body had also recovered some strength.
After sleeping for such a long time, Xiao Xi had no intention to sleep now. She got up and lit up a candle.
Xiao Xi glanced around. There was no sign of Feng Lingran in the room. Where did he go? What happened in the morning was just a dream? Feng Lingran didn’t come over?
Xiao Xi lowered her eyes and saw that she was wearing her clothes neatly. This was the clothes sent by the waiter that night.
Xiao Xi felt thirsty. She poured a glass of water and drank it. Thinking of Wan Siyu who was living next door, she walked out of the room. As she opened the door, she saw Xiao Qi’s baby face.
”Xiao Qi? What are you doing here?”
Xiao Xi looked at Xiao Qi in surprise. A thought flashed in her mind. If Xiao Qi is here, that means Feng Lingran is also here. I wasn’t dreaming during the day.
“Miss, are you awake?”
The image of Feng Lingran using his mouth to feed Xiao Xi medicine flashed through her mind and her small face flushed red.
