Xiao Xi was stunned. What does Zi Yi mean? Use her body to take a break?
Then… Why did he say such sad words? It was like he was making a will.
Xiao Xi suddenly felt like she was lied to by Zi Yi, but looking at Zi Yi’s pale face that was nearly translucent, she thought otherwise. That’s why she was so worried.
“Master, stop scaring me please. What do you actually mean? Can you explain it clearly to me please?”
“Wear your robe first.”
“If you’re not going to make it clear, I won’t wear it.”
What a stubborn donkey, Zi Yi sighed.
“Let me tell you a secret.” Zi Yi said mysteriously. He looked at Xiao Xi whose eyes were widened and was listening carefully to him and said, “My soul is afraid of the cold. I had been frozen on the Snow Mountain for so long I am already at my limit. So, I want to borrow your body for a while. Little apprentice, you won’t let me die just like that right?”
Xiao Xi’s mouth twitched after she finished listening. If it was like that, why didn’t he say so earlier? Must he let her misunderstand that he will die?
Xiao Xi covered the robe on herself. Zi Yi is too bad to even sympathize with.
“Master wants to attach to me?”
“I just want to enter your body, not attach to you.”
Xiao Xi frowned. Enter her body? The way he said it…
Xiao Xi blinked and said, “How long will it take you to come out?”
Zi Yi said, “After I finish resting, I will come out naturally.”
How long will he rest for?
Zi Yi did not give Xiao Xi an answer. When Xiao Xi nodded her head, he disappeared into the air, turned into a beam of light and entered Xiao Xi between her eyebrows.
Xiao Xi did not feel anything at all. She was stunned looking at Zi Yi’s disappearance.
“Master, master.” Xiao Xi called out.
A moment later.
“Little apprentice, I am about to isolate myself from the outside world. I will not be able to hear any noise from the outside, even yours. Remember what I said. Do not get too close to Nan Gongyin. Also, wait for me to come out to help you concoct the spiritual grass into a pill. Please wait a little while longer.”
He finished his sentence.
Zi Yi’s voice then disappeared. Xiao Xi called out to him twice but there was no response in her head.
He really isolated himself?
Xiao Xi breathed out a sigh of relief. No matter what, she just wants Zi Yi to be safe. She does not wish for anything to happen to Zi Yi.
Xiao Xi continued walking down the mountain. She suddenly remembered Ling Er. Since she and Nan Gongyin went up, she did not see Ling Er at all. Where is it?
No, Ling Er will not run around. Even if it went missing, it can still find her through her scent. But until now, Ling Er has not appeared. What does this actually mean?
Did Nan Gongyin’s people take Ling Er away?
Xiao Xi didn’t want to connect Ling Er’s disappearance with Nan Gongyin, but at the top of the Snow Mountain, no one would take Ling Er away except for Nan Gongyin and An Ye.
Xiao Xi frowned tightly. No, she has to get Ling Er back.
Xiao Xi walked to the foot of the Snow Mountain. She was nearly exhausted. Her legs were sore and tired, and she almost fell to the ground.
Seeing Nan Gongyin’s carriage still there, her eyes brightened. She endured her sour and tired legs and ran towards Nan Gongyin’s carriage.
Xiao Xi ran to the back of the carriage and wanted to open the rear curtain of the carriage. A sword stabbed in her direction and Xiao Xi stepped back, frightened and saw An Ye who suddenly appeared.
An Ye looked at Xiao Xi coldly, “You ungrateful woman, why are you here looking for the lord? Go away.”
Xiao Xi frowned. An Ye’s words were not pretty, but she did not have any conflicts with him at all.
“An Ye, you took Ling Er away right? Return Ling Er to me.”
An Ye humph, “What Ling Er? Get out of my sight or don’t blame me for using my sword.”
Xiao Xi knew that An Ye was exceptional in martial arts, and she too knew it was a death sentence if she confronted him. She shouted, “Nan Gongyin, come out, your subordinate wants to kill me.”
In the carriage, there was no movement as expected by Xiao Xi, and Nan Gongyin did not come out.
Dark night sarcastically said, “Because of you, the lord fell into a coma at the mountain side of Snow Mountain. You have the audacity to call him out?”
Xiao Xi was startled. What? Nan Gongyin fainted on the mountain side of the Snow Mountain?
“How can it be?”
“Why is this not impossible? When you were unconscious and your body was frozen, the lord used his internal force to warm your meridians. You should know best that he suffered from internal injuries and his body is weak. He cannot use his internal force at all, but for you…” An Ye said angrily, “On the top of the Snow Mountain, the lord is afraid you would feel cold so he hit your acupuncture points and helped you to dig out the firewood out and snow. The lord did so much for you and is suffering from a cold right now but he did it with no regrets. Yet how did you repay him? Once your goal is achieved, you immediately turned against his back and chased him down the Snow Mountain. All these ungrateful things were done by you Xiao Xi. And now, what qualification do you have to trouble the lord again?”
Xiao Xi frowned tightly and looked at the furious An Ye, “Why do you know all these so clearly?”
An Ye sneered, “I was just behind my lord, how can I not know?”
“Then you…” Since you saw everything, why didn’t you help Nan Gongyin?
Xiao Xi did not utter the rest of her words . She looked at An Ye’s cynical look and swallowed it back. An Ye is so protective over Nan Gongyin. If Nan Gongyin did not stop him, he would not just look and not help him.”
However, this matter is hers. There was no need for other people to help, and she did not expect Nan Gongyin to help her in this way.
Xiao Xi looked down and said, “I owe it to the lord and will return the favor sooner or later. An Ye, can you return me Ling Er please? This has nothing to do with Ling Er.”
“Xiao Xi, stop being such a hypocrite. If you don’t pay back what you owe the lord, I won’t return the little fox to you.”
Xiao Xi looked up abruptly. As expected, An Ye was the one who took Ling Er.
“How do you want me to return the favor?”
“Follow me back to Northern Ling until the lord is safe and sound.”
Xiao Xi hesitated. She did not want to go to Northern Ling.
“If you can’t even do this, don’t expect to have the little fox back ever again.”
An Ye’s expression told Xiao Xi, no matter what injury Nan Gongyin has, he will get revenge by hurting Ling Er.
“I can take care of him, but can I not return to Northern Ling? Doesn’t Nan Gongyin have a residence in the Eastern Jin Dynasty? Let’s go to the Eastern Jin Dynasty instead.”
An Ye sneered. She is still thinking about going to the Eastern Jin Dynasty at this time? The lord is not worth it. He did so much for her but his position in Xiao Xi’s heart can never exceed Feng Lingran.
“Feng Lingran sent troops to destroy the lord’s residence at the Eastern Jin Dynasty. Do you think the lord can still go to the Eastern Jin Dynasty in the future?”
Xiao Xi was shocked. When did Feng Lingran send troops to destroy Nan Gongyin’s residence in the Eastern Jin Dynasty?
An Ye did not want to dawdle with Xiao Xi any longer, “If you can’t do it, go now! The lord will not force you, and neither will I.”
Xiao Xi felt furious. Yeah! An Ye will not force her, but he would only threaten her with Ling Er’s life.
“I can take care of Nan Gongyin for a month, and I will try my best to take good care of him during this month. But after a month, I must leave. An Ye, if you agree, I will stay.”
Xiao Xi is not a person who will allow herself to manipulate her. Feng Lingran left for half a month already. If she serves Nan Gongyin for a month, she can make it to return to the Eastern Jin Dynasty just before Feng Lingran returns.
She promised Feng Lingran that she would meet him at the gate of the Eastern Jin Dynasty on the day he returns from his victorious battle.
An Ye hesitated for a moment and agreed, “Okay, remember what you said, take care of the lord for a month.”
“I’ll return it to you in a month’s time”
Xiao Xi knew An Ye was a person who keeps to his promises, so she did not force him to return Ling Er to her now.
“I also hope that this one month, you can take good care of Ling Er.”
An Ye glanced at Xiao Xi.
“When I return the little fox to you, it won’t even have a hair lesser than what it has now.”
With An Ye’s guarantee, Xiao Xi relaxed.
She went into the carriage.
Xiao Xi saw Nan Gongyin lying in the carriage. His face was pale and looked fragile, he was not anymore worse than Zi Yi. At this point, Nan Gongyin was unconscious and breathing was shallow.
Towards Nan Gongyin, Xiao Xi still felt sorry. Maybe Zi Yi was right. Nan Gongyin’s city is deep and full of people with wild ambition, but what do all this have to do with her? He saved her on the top of the Snow Mountain and she’s grateful for that. He never hurt her before and that was already enough.
Moreover, Xiao Xi already has Feng Lingran in her heart, so she would not have any other thoughts about Nan Gongyin. This way, she won’t be hurt so badly.
Northern Ling, Summer Manorhouse.
This was already three days later.
Nan Gongyin was lying in the room and was still unconscious. The imperial doctor checked his pulse and said the cold entered his body. Nan Gongyin’s body was also seriously injured so he was already weak. Both lead to him falling unconscious into a coma, but when he will regain consciousness , the imperial doctor could not give an exact answer. Maybe after a few days, maybe a few months.
At the Summer Manorhouse, Xiao Xi became a sinner in everybody’s eyes. Here, nobody liked her and everybody hated her.
If it was not for Nan Gongyin, Xiao Xi would not want to stay here for another moment.
No one here was willing to give her food, so Xiao Xi had to go out to the street to buy it. Of course, every time she left the mansion, An Ye would follow her.
Xiao Xi walked to a steamed bun shop. She was about to buy buns when she heard someone sitting outside eating porridge and having breakfast mention Feng Lingran.
“Sanzi, have you heard? This Eastern Jin Dynasty battle with the Northern Ling Dynasty is fierce. It is said that the invincible regent of the Eastern Jin Dynasty was injured by a poison arrow. I thought that the God of War of the Eastern Jin Dynasty was amazing? He turned out to be so vulnerable instead. The general of Northern Ling is so much more powerful. Kyushu City will definitely be the land of Northern Ling Dynasty.”
Xiao Xi’s heart trembled and she panicked. Feng Lingran was poisoned by a poison arrow. He was so powerful, how could he be poisoned by a poison arrow?
“The Head of General is invincible. The God of War of the Eastern Jin Dynasty would lose badly once he meets the Head of General of Northern Ling Dynasty…”
Before the man could finish his words, the table was overturned by Xiao Xi. Both of them looked at Xiao Xi’s angry face and were surprised. Soon, the two stood up furiously.
”You stupid girl, did you eat Bear Heart Leopard Gall? How dare you flip our table?”
