Xiao Xi’s heart moved, looking at Nan Gongyin, her soul almost absorbed by his gentle eyes.
Nan Gongyin’s eyes suddenly fell on the back of Xiao Xi’s hand, his eyebrows frowned slightly and held her little hand. He placed it under his nose, smelled a familiar medicine fragrance, and saw that the skin on the back of her hand was faintly showing abnormal light red. Nan Gongyin asked, “What happened to the back of the hand?”
“It’s no big deal. I accidentally scalded it when I fetch the water.”
Xiao Xi didn’t talk about Xia Chu’s petty tricks. She had already given her a taste of her own medicine, so there was no need to mention it.
Moreover, Xiao Xi also slapped Qiu Lan. Most likely she would be more obedient in the future.
“Be careful next time. Don’t touch hot water. Only serve it after it cools down.”
Nan Gongyin’s pale lips were gently blowing on the back of Xiao Xi’s hand. The gentle breeze was caressing the back of Xiao Xi’s burned hand. He blew it so gently and carefully…
Xiao Xi’s heart trembled inexplicably. Looking at Nan Gongyin, she suddenly felt very comfortable. This feeling was addictive like a poppy.
Nightshade came out of Nan Gongyin’s room, staring coldly at the elated little girl outside the door.
“What are you looking at? Didn’t you hear your master’s command? Give me back Ling Er.”
Xiao Xi wasn’t afraid of Nightshade. She knew that this man with a chilly aura would not really do anything to her.
About the time needed for a joss stick to finish burning.
Nightshade returned Ling Er to Xiao Xi. On the back of Nightshade’s hand, there were a few bloody scratches. Ling Er was still fine with her white hair intact and no damage.
Ling Er was very happy to see Xiao Xi, and jumped directly from Nightshade’s arms into Xiao Xi’s arms. He rubbed his fluffy face on Xiao Xi’s chest.
Xiao Xi caressed the fluffy head of Ling Er with her fingers. Its raised ear fell down like a lop-eared rabbit after Xiao Xi caressed it.
“How do you want to punish me?” Nightshade’s voice was extremely cold.
Xiao Xi looked at Nightshade’s cold face. She smiled slyly.
“Go and write me a self-reflection report in 30,000 words. The content should be profound. If I am not satisfied with the expression, you will need to rewrite it. Give it to me tomorrow morning. If it is not turned in tomorrow morning, it will become 60,000 words. For each day the report is not turned in, double the number of words.
Nightshade was horrified.
It was a starry night and the silver moon was round like a disk.
Xiao Xi hugged Ling Er and quietly slipped out of the Summer Manorhouse. She punished Nightshade to write a self-reflection report of 30,00 words during the day so that she could slip away at night. Having a 30,000-words reflection report was quite plenty. Even with an agile hand. After Nightshade got tired of writing, his hand would feel so numb as though it was not his anymore. With that, he would not have time to keep a close look at her.
Xiao Xi suddenly felt very witty.
She knew the Summer Manorhouse layouts, and the vigilant guards’s patrol. She could even remember when they would doze off in their minds.
After leaving the Summer Manorhouse, Xiao Xi went directly to the horse market. It was also thanks to everyone at the Summer Manorhouse who was unhappy with her which allowed her to have the opportunity to go out and find out where the nearest horse market was to the Summer Manorhouse.
Late at night, there were no people in the horse market, but there were many horses in the backyard.
Xiao Xi picked up a brick and smashed the lock of the horse stable. She wasn’t concerned with waking up the sleeping horseman. When she left the Summer Manorhouse, she took some money from Nan Gongyin. Since she had to visit Kyushu City, she would definitely need some money with her.
She served Nan Gongyin for several days, and she wouldn’t be overpaid for taking some money.
Until Xiao Xi pulled out a horse with red mane, the horsemen did not wake up.
Xiao Xi left some money, but shen then took it away when she was on the horseback. She took this money from Nan Gongyin. If it was placed here and Nan Gongyin knew it, her whereabouts would be immediately exposed.
“Baby horse, go quickly.” Xiao Xi hugged Ling Er in one hand and patted him on the horse’s back with one hand, urging it to leave.
She never expected the horse to ignore her completely.
Xiao Xi grabbed the reins on the horse’s back with her eyes narrowed. It seemed that she could not be too gentle with this disobedient horse. She lifted the reins and whipped the horse. However, the horse didn’t seem to feel the pain, and it continued to ignore Xiao Xi.
Did I whip too light?
Xiao Xi’s fingers holding the reins tightened. At this moment, Ling Er’s front claw suddenly caught Xiao Xi’s reins and snatched them.
It was a harsh whip.
The horse hissed, raised its front legs, and rushed out.
Xiao Xi grabbed the reins nervously. She suddenly found that she was not as good as her Ling Er…
After the horse ran out, the horseman with a robe hurriedly ran out of the house. When he saw the opened pen, he chased out and cursed, “You horse thief, stop immediately…”
After the rush about in the middle of the night, it was already dawn. Xiao Xi came off the horse. The horse was eating grass. She hugged her Ling Er and sat on the grass to rest.
“Ling Er, how long does it take to reach Kyushu City?”
There were two day and night flashed in Ling Er’s dark eyes.
“Two more days?”
Xiao Xi sighed and felt so tired. It was not an easy task to sit on the horse’s back, not to mention that the grazing horse was not an obedient one. It raised her hoof many times at night, and wanted to throw her off its back.
Fortunately, the reins she grasped were tight enough. The horse with her legs clamped was tight enough so that she was not thrown away.
However, the horse seemed a little scared of Lin Er, probably because Lie Er whipped it harshly.
Xiao Xi suddenly felt that this horse was sly. Instead of succumbing to her tenderness, she was only obedient to ferocious Lin Er.
After resting for about an hour, Xiao Xi got on the horseback again.
A horse started to protest. It raised its front feet, and shook its hind legs. Since Xiao Xi just got on the horse, she was shaken off by a horse, and fell on the bottom.
Seeing this, Lin Er jumped onto the horse’s back, claws took the reins, and whipped the horse.
The horse became obedient and slowly stopped, as if waiting for Xiao Xi to ride up.
Xiao Xi rubbed her sore buttocks. Just like the folks saying, a kind person will ride by the horse instead, a disobedient horse needs harsh whipping .
Xiao Xi easily climbed onto the horse’s back. The horse stood up obediently…
Xiao Xi held Lin Er with a little surprise. What kind of species is it? It can even control a horse.
Moreover, Lin Er’s eyes were also magical. It could display a map clearly, clearly telling her where she wanted to go.
Two days had passed.
Xiao Xi came outside the Nanoland City. Her heart was tense and excited. This is the battlefield! Feng Lingran’s battlefield. What would Feng Lingran look like when he saw me coming?
She wouldn’t bother Feng Lingran, as long as she saw that Feng Lingran was fine, she was relieved.
At this moment, Xiao Xi was dressed in men’s clothing, like a beautiful young boy. She rode a horse while holding a white fur little fox. It was picturesque.
Suddenly, a figure struck, riding on the horse behind Xiao Xi, grabbing the reins and whipping it vigorously.
“Ja!” He yelled.
The horse seemed startled and ran quickly.
A few arrows crossed Xiao Xi’s ear, and almost shot through Xiao Xi’s ear.
The man had a strong bloody smell. He gasped behind Xiao Xi. She could sense that he was badly injured.
“Don’t let him run away, chase.”
It came from the sound of the troops in pursuit.
Xiao Xi said nothing, and a cold dagger rested on her neck.
“Escape their pursuit. Otherwise, we all have to die.”
The man kicked the horse’s belly hard and put the reins in Xiao Xi’s hands. His chest pressed on Xiao Xi’s weak back, and the thick bloody smell penetrated into Xiao Xi’s nose.
Xiao Xi squeezed the reins in her hands with her eyes darkened, “You better remove the dagger on my neck. Otherwise, you will die before me.”
The man’s hawk-eyed eyes stared at the young man in front of him, looking fragile, and speaking with some courage.
The dagger left Xiao Xi’s neck. The man said, “You better not play tricks with me. If I die, I will also pull you to hell.”
Xiao Xi whipped the reins vigorously, the hoof hoisted and the man almost fell.
He clasped Xiao Xi’s waist with both hands. When the horse’s hoof fell, his internal organs trembled and his blood swelled up, spitting blood.
“Do you still have the strength to pull me to hell? Huh?” Xiao Xi’s epilogue went up. Although the stupid horse gave her some hardships, she also practiced her riding. She was telling the man behind her that if she didn’t want to save him, she could just abandon him now.
Of course, she did not leave the man behind her, but also wanted to know from his mouth the current situation in Nanoland City. Did Feng Lingran have poisoned arrows in his body?
The man’s face turned pale and blue, and his voice softened, “Young hero, you take me away today. I will remember your greatness.”
Xiao Xi’s eyes blinked.Young hero? I like it.
Xiao Xi’s horse ran fast. It didn’t take long to escape the pursuit of the troops. At the outskirts of Nanoland city, as soon as the horse stopped, the seriously injured man behind Xiao Xi rolled off.
Xiao Xi jumped off the horse and saw several startling wounds on the man in a coma who fell to the ground. The blood stained his robe.
It was a handsome face of a stranger. However, it seemed a bit familiar, as if she had seen him?
Xiao Xi saw Lin Er’s mouth carrying a few green herbs. She bent down and took the herbs out of her mouth. She said, “Lin Er, can these herbs stop the blood on his body?”
Xiao Xi smiled, and touched its ears, “What a good baby.”
Xiao Xi took the herbs in her hand and went to find some more. After coming back, she smashed it. Then, she took off the man’s bloody robe and noticed the man’s deep and long wounds. It was still bleeding which startled Xiao Xi. She took the smashed herbs and applied to his wound.
Xiao Xi tore his shirt, and turned it into a cloth wrapped around his wound with herbal medicine. She sat tired on the ground and exhaled.
When the man woke up, it was already night. When he saw the wounds on his body were wrapped in cloth strips, exuding the smell of herbs, his heart moved slightly. He looked at the little boy beside the fire.
Exquisite features, such as the snow porcelain skin. His lips were not slick. The young boy was so beautiful…
