Just when Wan Qiyu’s hand was about to touch the immortal pills, he was suddenly caught by someone. Wan Qiyu looked up and saw Feng Lingran’s cold gaze.
Before Wan Qiyu finished speaking, his hand was thrown out of the coffin by Feng Lingran.
“Everyone sees something different. Don’t you think there is something weird in this coffin?”
Feng Lingran’s voice made Wan Qiyu suddenly feel a chill down his spine.
Yup! This coffin is indeed strange, but I saw the immortal pills, my excitement filled his brain, forgetting everything but the alertness he should have, except to reach for it.
Wan Qiyu swallowed his saliva and asked, “Lingran, what did you see in the coffin?”
Feng Lingran pursed his thin lips and did not answer Wan Qiyu. He saw Xiao Xi being held in the arms of Nan Gongyin. He frowned fiercely as his eyes flashed with cold light. The cold sword in drew a cold arc above the coffin. The sword strike was fierce, and it was filled with murderous intention.
“Your Highness, be careful.”
Nightshade pushed away Nan Gongyin beside him, pulled out the cold sword around his waist, and parried the sword light, but he was forced to step back a few steps by the power of the sword light.
When Nan Gongyin was pushed away, he was afraid that the little girl in his arms would fall down and hurt herself. So, he hugged her tightly, protecting her in his arms. Suddenly, a slender hand stretched out and grasped Nan Gongyin’s wrist. The hand exerted force…
Nan Gongyin looked at Feng Lingran, who suddenly appeared in front of him, then his wrist felt hurt. When his wrist was almost broken, his dark moon-like eyes flashed through the dark light.
The sound of broken bones.
The little girl in Nan Gongyin’s arms fell into Feng Lingran’s arms.
“Master.” Nightshade’s mouth was bleeding. He walked to Nan Gongyin’s side. When he saw Nan Gongyin’s abnormally drooping hand, he frowned. His black eyes looked worried and angry.
Xiao Xi fell into Feng Lingran’s arms. As she heard Nightshade shouting out of worry, she thought of the “crack” sound just now. Something seemed to be broken? Suddenly, she thought that Feng Lingran assaulted Nan Gongyin just now, and Xiao Xi’s heart was tightened ruthlessly. She instinctively turned her face and saw Nan Gongyin’s hand drooping down as if it was broken. Xiao Xi’s heart seemed to be pinched by something. It was aching ruthlessly.
“Nan Gongyin.” Her clear eyes looked at Nan Gongyin with worry, but she had forgotten that she was still in Feng Lingran’s arms.
Feng Lingran’s dark eyes flashed the unpleasant darkness. His long fingers held Xiao Xi’s chin, and he moved her small face to face him.
Xiao Xi was worried and nervous. Her emotion was aroused inexplicably by Nan Gongyin’s broken arm, then her chin was hurt being held by Feng Lingran. When she saw Feng Lingran’s handsome face, there was suddenly a rage in her heart that almost devoured her mind.
Xiao Xi raised her palm, and a slap hit Feng Lingran’s face.
This slap stunned everyone.
Even Xiao Xi was astounded herself. She looked at her little hand absently. She was shocked in her heart. How? Why would I suddenly hit Feng Lingran?
“Feng Lingran, I…”
Xiao Xi wanted to explain that, but seeing Feng Lingran’s cold eyes, Xiao Xi’s voice seemed to be stuck in her throat.
“Xiao Xi, you are really ungrateful. Lingran treats you so good, but I didn’t expect you to slap Lingran because of Nan Gongyin. If one day, Nan Gongyin and Lingran can only live one, can you kill Lingran for Nan Gongyin?”
Wan Qiyu’s words were like a heavy hammer, slamming fiercely at Xiao Xi’s heart. Her heart was bleeding.
Xiao Xi shook her head and said in a panic, “No, I won’t do that.”
The person I like is Feng Lingran! How could I possibly kill Feng Lingran for Nan Gongyin?
Wan Qiyu looked coldly at Xiao Xi who shook her head, then he sneered, “Stop pretending, Xiao Xi. Wasn’t the slap just now clear enough?” He paused and continued, “Why? After you went to the Southern Lin Dynasty Palace and saw Nan Gongyin’s true face, were you fascinated by him? Xiao Xi, if you like Nan Gongyin, you can say it directly. Lingran may be able to fulfill you and Nan Gongyin, but you didn’t. What is your purpose following Lingran back to the Eastern Jin Dynasty king mansion?”
“I didn’t.” Xiao Xi suddenly shouted at Wan Qiyu.
Her brain was now very chaotic. She didn’t know why she suddenly slapped Feng Lingran in a rage. She knew that the Southern Lin Dynasty and the Eastern Jin Dynasty were hostile. Nan Gongyin and Feng Lingran would be against each other sooner or later. Even though she worried about Nan Gongyin’s hand, she should not blame Feng Lingran.
No one would believe her if she told the truth now. They would even think that she was quibbling.
However, she hoped Wan Qiyu would stop right there. These words of Wan Qiyu were provoking a discord in Feng Lingran’s trust of her.
Wan Qiyu apparently was not going to let Xiao Xi go. He opened his mouth as he still wanted to say something…
Bright red sharp nails scratched with a terrifying bloody ghost wind. Wan Qiyu stepped back as he was terrified.
Nu Er’s bloody eyes stared at Wan Qiyu, “Your mouth is so despicable. It is better to tear it off.”
Wan Qiyu was so scared that he covered his mouth. His eyes revealed a hint of fear as he was shaking his head at Nu Er.
No, no more, he would say nothing more.
Wan Qiyu was annoyed in his heart. Why did I forget that little fox is protected by the evil Nu Er?
Nu Er sneered as she snorted. She did not continue to attack Wan Qiyu. It wasn’t that she didn’t want to tear off Wan Qiyu’s despicable mouth, but…
Nu Er turned around, and his red eyes moved to the half handsome face of Feng Lingran that was reddened by Xiao Xi’s slap. Her eyes flashed a glimmer of light. Wasn’t it just being slapped by Miss? Is that a big deal?
“Feng Lingran, if you dare to touch her, I will kill all your people in the Eastern Jin Dynasty and make them all become servants of this underground palace, kneeling on the ground every day to atone for your sins.”
Nu Er’s undistinguished voice made everyone’s heart chill for a while. Her bright red eyes were like being stained by countless blood. As her eyes blinked, it was purgatory that made people suffer a living hell.
Nan Gongyin’s wrist was broken, but he didn’t even make a noise. His cold moon-like eyes looked at Xiao Xi and Feng Lingran, then he looked at everyone’s expressions. Nan Gongyin was slightly surprised by Xiao Xi’s slap on Feng Lingran just now. He did not expect Xiao Xi to protect him so much.
Xi Er was stunned. When Xiao Xi slapped Feng Lingran, she was shocked for a long time. Until Wan Qiyu accused Xiao Xi, Xi Er’s heart hurt slightly. Looking at Feng Lingran’s unparalleled handsome face, how could that girl named Xiao Xi bear giving such a heavy slap on him?
As Xi Er heard Nu Er threatening Feng Lingran, her heart trembled fiercely. She felt cold all over her body. She knew how horrible this red corpse was, but the Miss of this red corpse was the little fox. Why was she protecting Xiao Xi suddenly?
Feng Lingran ignored Nu Er. His black eyes looked at Xiao Xi coldly like two arrows that could pierce Xiao Xi’s soul. Everyone could see that Feng Lingran was furious, but no one could guess how would he punish the little girl in his arms.
Xiao Xi shook her head at Nu Er and asked her not to say anymore. This was originally her fault. She didn’t want to deepen the misunderstanding with Feng Lingran.
Xiao Xi bit her pink lips. She didn’t dare to look directly at Feng Lingran’s black eyes. After a while, she felt a little cold in Feng Lingran’s arms before she said with a trembling lips, “Don’t be angry, I’m wrong. I will never hit you again next time.”
If possible, Xiao Xi really wanted Feng Lingran to slap her which was better than being stared at by him coldly.
Nu Er screamed.
What was done couldn’t be undone. Miss didn’t have to apologize to Feng Lingran. Isn’t he just a Lord of the Eastern Jin Dynasty? Is he worthy of Miss’ humble apology?
“Next time? En?”
Feng Lingran’s thin lips opened, and his voice was extremely cold.
Xiao Xi’s head shook like a rattle, and her small hands grabbed Feng Lingran’s arm nervously, “No next time, there will never be next time. Feng Lingran, don’t be angry. I didn’t mean it.”
Feng Lingran looked at the little girl’s panicking eyes in front of him as if she did something wrong, then the chill in his eyes gradually dissipated.
Wan Qiyu looked at Feng Lingran, and he was very surprised. What? Feng Lingran forgave the little fox that slapped him in front of everyone else so easily? Feng Lingran is really fascinated by the little fox. If there is one day, Feng Lingran will die in the hands of the little fox instead of anyone else.
Wan Qiyu felt Nu Er’s gloomy sight. His open mouth closed again, and he cursed Nu Er in his heart. Damn red corpse. You still revive after staying dead for so long. You are really too harmful. You should stay dead. Your body should rot, have maggots on it, and finally turn a pile of white skull, sleeping forever in this underground palace.
Nu Er made Wan Qiyu feel cold by looking at him. Her red eyes flashed a dark light. This despicable mouth, I will let it go for now. One day, I will tear it myself.
Anyone who bullies my Miss will never have a good ending, and I will not give them a good ending.
Xi Er heard Nu Er calling Xiao Xi as Miss. She widened her eyes with shock in her heart. That little girl… is that little fox?
No wonder Nu Er would protect Xiao Xi in this way. Then… Xiao Xi is a little fox who gained intelligence?
Xi Er’s heart was trembling as she was being too stimulated. If she hadn’t seen it with her own eyes, she would probably never believe that there was a little fox who gained intelligence through cultivation in this world.
Xiao Xi felt that the coldness around her body was gradually disappearing. Her restless heart gradually relaxed and calmed down. She put her arms around Feng Lingran’s neck intimately. Her small face leaned on his shoulder, and the tip of her standing nose seemed to be pointing against his handsome contour that had no flaw.
In the future, she would never look at Nan Gongyin again. His eyes were poisonous. His injuries would also affect her.
Xiao Xi was reluctant to think about why. She was even more unwilling to believe that she would like Nan Gongyin. Some feelings were destined from the beginning. She didn’t have that kind of palpitations for Nan Gongyin. She could be sure about that, but then…
Forget it. A lot of things happened later, and it is enough to know who is the man I want.
Feng Lingran held Xiao Xi, and the black eyes looked into the coffin again. When he saw what was inside, he frowned slightly.
