“The Kyushu City War has not come into victory nor defeat yet, but you are here arrogantly spouting nonsense. When you are defeated in the end, your grand general king of Northern Ling will piss in his pants in terror.”
Xiao Xi couldn’t allow the Northern Ling people to speak off Feng Lingran like that.
The two macho men were a little surprised. This little girl dared to say such words while standing on the land of the Northern Ling Kingdom. Did she not want to live?
“I think you’re looking for death. How dared you curse the grand general Northern Ling King. Sanzi, take her to the yamen , and let the official behead her.
Two macho men rolled up their sleeves and started to make a move on Xiao Xi.
Xiao Xi’s fingers were orchid-shaped, and she was ready to make a move. She thought about it, and a smirk crept at the corner of her mouth. She turned and ran behind Nightshade, “If you don’t want to get beheaded by yamen , get out of my way.”
Nightshade glanced at the little girl behind her, frowning slightly.
Suddenly, the macho men punched at Nightshade. Nightshade reached out and grabbed the fist of the macho man, rotated it with great force, and pushed it away.
“Ah!” Macho man screamed, his entire arm was distorted.
Once Sanzi saw this, the punch that he almost threw out became limp. His legs trembled as he cursed at Nightshade, “You! Beauty surpasses your country is it? If you protect her, you are a traitor to Northern Ling. That is the shame to Northern Ling.”
Xiao Xi heard the words and saw Nightshade’s dark handsome face, she covered her mouth and grinned.
Nightshade was scolded, and she was refreshed.
Back to the Summer Manorhouse, Xiao Xi was a little uneasy. The conversation between the two men occupied her mind all these while.
Feng Lingran got hit by the poisoned arrow.
Is this really true? Xiao Xi didn’t know and couldn’t know the truth, but the fact successfully disturbed her.
She could no longer stay in the Summer Manorhouse to take care of Northern Ling Gongyin. She had to find some ways to rescue Ling Er and go to Kyushu City to find Feng Lingran.
Making up his mind, Xiao Xi walked towards the dining room. At this time, Northern Ling Gongyin’s medicine was almost cooked.
Xia Chu saw Xiao Xi coming in. She snorted and was very dissatisfied with Xiao Xi at this time.
Xia Chu was unhappy at Xiao Xi, and it was the same how Xiao Xi felt for Xiao Chu. If Ling Er was taken away by Nightshade, Xiao Xi wouldn’t come here.
“The master’s medicine is almost cold. You just came. I don’t think you want to take care of the master.”
Xiao Xi ignored Xia Chu and served medicine.
When Xiao Xi turned around and walked away, she didn’t take care of her footing. The medicine flipped and poured on the back of the hand. The hot medicine was not as cold as what Xia Chu said. Suddenly, Xiao Xi’s back of the hand became red.
Xiao Xi turned around angrily, “Xia Chu, you did it on purpose.”
Just now, if what tripped her feet was not Xia Chu, would it actually be a ghost?
“Xiao Xi, you have knocked over the master’s medicine yourself, and now you want to blame it on me?” Xiao Chu said in a sharp tone.
Xiao Xi’s gaze became gloomy. The scalded back of the hand was giving off scorching pain. Looking at Xia Chu, she would never admit that she had done it.
“You should know that your family master can’t delay the time of taking medicine. Now after re-decocting medicine, at least one hour is needed, Xia Chu. Do you really care about your master’s body?”
Xia Chu’s face changed slightly.
“Xiao Xi, stop talking nonsense here. Fortunately, I was prepared knowing that you are unable to do anything right. So, I prepared two servings.”
Xia Chu held up another medicine pot and poured the medicine into a bowl. When Xiao Xi was ready to hand it over to Xiao Xi, Xia Chu’s knee hurt. All of the boiling medicine fell on Xia Chu’s back of the hand.
“Ah!” Xia Chu called with a sharp throat.
“It seems that it’s not just me who can’t do anything right.” Xiao Xi smiled, turned and walked out. “After you prepare the medicine, take it to Northern Ling Gongyin’s room. I will not stay with you.”
Xia Chu’s eyes stared at Xiao Xi’s back in hatred while she gritted her teeth.
Qiu Lan walked in and saw the medicine on the ground and Xia Chu’s burned hand, she was slightly surprised.
Tears rolled in Xia Chu’s red eyes, “Sister Lan, that Xiao Xi is too overboard. She overthrew the master’s medicine and was still quite arrogant. When I poured the second bowl of medicine, Xiao Xi played dirty tricks on me, so…”
Xia Chu lowered her eyes and looked at her red-hot hands, tears dripping.
Qiu Lan frowned. She glanced at the two medicine pots on the furnace. She suddenly raised her hand and gave Xia Chu a slap.
Xia Chu was startled. She raised her head, and looked at Qiu Lan in disbelief. At this moment, she suddenly realized that Qiu Lan in front of her was no longer the gentle sister. Qiu Lan exuded a kind of cold and terrible aura.
“At first, I thought you were clever. I didn’t expect that you were so muddled. In order to make tricks to deal with Xiao Xi, you even dared to ignore the master’s body.”
Qiu Lan saw through Xia Chu’s scheme. Xiao Chu turned pale and shook her head, “Sister Lan, it’s not what you think. Xiao Chu has two servings…”
Qiu Lan’s eyes were angry and disappointed, “Two medicines servings? After you played tricks with Xiao Xi, will she not let you taste your own medicine? Or, do you think Xiao Xi will care about the body and life of the master?”
If she cared, the master would not be bruised all over the body.
Xia Chu seemed to be woken up and apologized, “Sister Lan, Xiao Chu made a mistake. Can you forgive Xiao Chu? Chu Er did this for you too. Chu Er really can’t bear Xiao Xi…”
Outside the door, beside the window, stood a little girl. She heard the conversation between Qiu Lan and Xia Chu.
Xiao Xi had a faint smile at the corner of her mouth. In Summer Manorhouse, Qiu Lan was a clever person. Xia Chu’s little tricks could not conceal Qiu Lan. Otherwise, she would not have thought of such a bad move at first, and forced her to stay in Northern Ling Gongyin’s side.
Xiao Xi’s eyes flashed with doubt. Although Qiu Lan respected Northern Ling Gongyin on a daily basis, from the eyes of Qiu Lan, Xiao Xi could see that Qiu Lan had affection for Northern Ling Gongyin. So, why should Qiu Lan stay with Northern Ling Gongyin?
Does she… play an important role to Northern Ling Gongyin…?
Xiao Xi recalled what Zi Yi had said. Northern Ling Gongyin was shrewd and ambitious… What does this have to do with her?
Xiao Xi felt as though she grasped something in her head, but it was too late for her to catch it. However, judging from Qiu Lan’s actions, she should be extremely important to Northern Ling Gongyin.
Xiao Xi walked into Northern Ling Gongyin’s room and was surprised to find that Northern Ling Gongyin opened his eyes.
Northern Ling Gongyin woke up. Xiao Xi’s heart was undoubtedly happy.
“Xiao Xi?” Northern Ling Gongyin pushed himself up and finally managed to sit up with a pale face. He looked at Xiao Xi, “Why are you here?”
“I…” Xiao Xi wanted to tell Northern Ling Gongyin about Nightshade’s arrest of Ling Er. When she saw Northern Ling Gongyin’s pale and fragile complexion, she swallowed it back. Northern Ling Gongyin finally woke up. She didn’t want Northern Ling Gongyin to faint out of anger. Maybe I should say something nice and let him be happy. With that, he can recover faster. Xiao Xi continued, “After I fell in the snow mountain, I noticed you were unconscious, so I was worried. Hence, I just go all the way to take care of you. I’m happy to see you wake up now.”
Nightshade just approached Northern Ling Gongyin’s room door and heard Xiao Xi’s voice inside. He twitched the corner of his mouth slightly. This little fox really knows how to fabricate lies. If I did not threaten her with Ling Er, would she be willing to take care of the master?
Soon, Nightshade’s eyes rose with surprise. Did the master wake up?
Northern Ling Gongyin looked at the delicate face of the young girl, and his heart moved. A pale smile twitched at the corner of his mouth, “Since you are worried about me, it means you have me in your heart.”
“…” Xiao Xi was speechless.
About half an hour.
Qiu Lan came in with the medicine and saw Northern Ling Gongyin waking up in the bed. Her heart trembled fiercely, her fingers trembled with a few drops of the medicine juice dropped on the back of her hand. Qiu Lan did not feel the pain.
“Master, you finally woke up.” Ever since Northern Ling Gongyin was unconscious, Qiu Lan was worried about the night.
“Pass the medicine to Xiao Xi!”
Unconsciously, Qiu Lan walked to the bed and heard Northern Ling Gongyin’s voice. She realized that she was holding a medicine bowl and had picked up a porcelain spoon of medicine. Am I about to feed the master?
Qiu Lan’s cheeks were slightly red. She lowered the porcelain spoon and delivered the medicine to Xiao Xi.
“Miss Xiao, sorry for troubling you.”
Xiao Xi took the medicine bowl and ignored Qiu Lan. Last time, Qiu Lan went overboard. Xiao Xi’s dissatisfaction with Qiu Lan was painted all over her face.
Xiao Xi was sitting in front of the bed, holding up the medicine in the bowl, and slowly feeding it into Northern Ling Gongyin’s mouth. He was unconscious because of her. She should feed the medicine to him.
Northern Ling Gongyin watched Xiao Xi’s jerky feeding action. Her slender fingers were a bit stiff; her mood was elated. This was the first time she fed medicine to people! Northern Ling Gongyin looked at Xiao Xi’s eyes more gently.
A bowl of medicine was fed into Northern Ling Gongyin’s belly.
Xiao Xi gave the medicine bowl to Qiu Lan. After Qiu Lan went out, she thought for a moment and said, “Northern Ling Gongyin, your subordinate took my stuff. I can’t beat him. Can you let him return it?”
Northern Ling Gongyin asked with a smile, “Who is so brave? He dares to even take your stuff?”
“Hmph! His courage is not small. That day, I came to you at the foothill of the snowy mountain. He blocked me out of the carriage with a sword and told me to leave.”
The smile on Northern Ling Gongyin’s face faded gradually, and his eyes grew colder, “Nightshade?”
“It’s him. Not only that, he almost killed me.”
Xiao Xi said, watching the expression on Northern Ling Gongyin’s face and seeing his eyes flashed with anger. Xiao Xi knew that Northern Ling Gongyin believed her words.
It was not her fault for being too despicable, Nightshade was despicable first. Moreover, what she said now was true and not false.
“I got it. How do you want to punish him?”
Xiao Xi blinked her eyes. Did I hear it right? Northern Ling Gongyin said … How would I punish Nightshade?
“Nightshade is loyal to you, but also because you are unconscious at the waist of the snow mountain, he lost his reasonings and wanted to kill me. Are you really willing to give him punishment?
Xiao Xi’s words were quite sophisticated. It would be too late even if Northern Ling Gongyin wanted to go back on it.
Northern Ling Gongyin nodded his head. His pupil was like a moonlight, looking at Xiao Xi tenderly, “In this world, nothing is more important than your life in my heart.”
