Xiao Sheng’s words made Xiao Xi very uncomfortable. Even if Xi Er was Nu Er’s Miss, Feng Lingran would not be Xi Er’s.
Suddenly, a slender palm wiped her half of her cheek, and the place where her fingertips were rubbed was the place where Nan Gongyin’s thin lips touched.
Xiao Xi’s slender eyelashes trembling like a butterfly’s wings, and her heart gradually accelerated. Feng Lingran has a habit of cleanliness; he minded.
Thinking that Feng Lingran almost killed Nan Gongyin just now, Xiao Xi’s eyelashes trembled more severely. She closed her eyes, closed her lips, and squeezed her small hands tightly. She tried not to hold her painful heart.
Feng Lingran looked at the little girl with her eyes closed in his arms. Although she let him wipe her face obediently, her expression was very stiff and her eyelashes were trembling. Why does she seem uncomfortable somewhere?
Feng Lingran frowned, and his black eyes fluctuating.
“Boy, don’t do it the hard way. You are not qualified to refuse in front of the Spirit Palace.” Xiao Sheng suddenly raised his foot and kicked Nan Gongyin’s back leg. Nan Gongyin suffered a pain, and his knee was going to hit the ground. When his knee was about to touch the ground, Nan Gongyin put his hands on the ground, resisted the pain, and stood up again.
He, Nan Gongyin, the majestic Highness of the Southern Lin Dynasty, apart from his parents, no one was qualified to be kneeled by him, let alone Xi Er?
“Boy, you’re pretty proud. A cold dim light flashed under Xiao Sheng’s eyes, and he smiled in a strange tone, “I admire your pride. Why not I give you a big present that can connect to the outside world when you become the son-in-law of the Spirit Palace?”
“Your Highness…” Nightshade endured the pain of a broken rib, tightly squeezing the sword in his hand. He stared at Xiao Sheng furiously with fresh blood on his mouth. If Nan Gongyin didn’t cast an eye signal to stop him, Nightshade would have already charged at Xiao Sheng.
Your Highness, you can’t be subjected to these humiliations.
“Don’t doubt me, since you are here, you should know what precious treasures my sister left behind.” Xiao Sheng put his hand on Nan Gongyin’s shoulder and pressed hard, and Nan Gongyin’s shoulder sank suddenly.
Xiao Sheng eye-signaled Xi Er.
Xi Er’s brain went blank, and her heartbeat had lost its frequency. Xiao Sheng’s words seemed to ring in her ears again. If she kissed His Royal Highness the Southern Lin Dynasty and proved her identity, then and Feng Lord would also be hers.
What she had never dared to think about before now fell on her. She seemed to have received a special blessing from God. In just a few days, she changed from a maid without a father and no mother to a noble princess.
Xi Er gritted her teeth, raised her hands, and held Nan Gongyin’s picturesque face. Her heart was like beating a drum. She pouted and kissed…
Nan Gongyin’s cold and moon-like eyes suddenly revealed a coldness. This lowly girl really dares?
Nan Gongyin’s black feather eyelashes lifted up, and his black eyes looked at Xiao Xi in Feng Lingran’s arms. At this moment, Xiao Xi’s gaze landed on Nan Gongyin’s face.
Four eyes faced each other.
Xiao Xi’s heart throbbed hard, thinking that Xi Er’s lips would fall on Nan Gongyin’s thin lips, her heart was so painful that she couldn’t breathe. This had nothing to do with love, it was an instinctive reaction. She knew that this was inseparable from Nan Gongyin, Xiao Xi still had no choice but to slip out from Feng Lingran’s arms.
She didn’t want to bear this kind of pain any longer.
“Forcing someone to do something they don’t want to, this is really despicable and shameless.”
Xiao Xi’s figure quickly appeared behind Xi Er and kicked her down. Xiao Xi’s finely delicate white face looked even pale, and there was a fine cold sweat on her forehead.
Nu Er wasn’t calling Xi Er but Xiao Xi, her peach blossom eyes suddenly shrank, “Xiao Sheng, stop! I forbid you to hurt Miss.”
Xiao Sheng’s cold black eyes flashed with killing intent, and his palm fiercely slammed down at Xiao Xi’s head.
“Xi’er, be careful.”
At the critical moment, Nan Gongyin spread his arms and took Xiao Xi into his arms. Xiao Sheng’s palm landed on Nan Gongyin’s back.
Nightshade yelled frantically, and he charged madly at Xiao Sheng with scarlet eyes.
The fragrance of Nan Gongyin’s body entered Xiao Xi’s nose. It was familiar but yet still unfamiliar. Her small face left his chest, and there was some viscous liquid dripping on her forehead. One drop, two drops; a shockingly bright red fluid was blooding down. It was the blood of Nan Gongyin.
Xiao Xi’s heart seemed to be stabbed with a knife so hard that she couldn’t breathe. She raised her head and saw Nan Gongyin’s mouth, which was full of bright red blood. It was still dripping continuously.
Xiao Xi’s eyes were red, “Nan Gongyin, you’re fine. It’s going to be fine. Wan Qiyu is still there. He is a miracle-working doctor, and he has magical medicine.”
Nan Gongyin raised his palm, placed it on her head, and touched it lightly. His thin blood-stained lips revealed a bright red smile, and he looked at her tenderly, “Xi’er, I never thought of hurting you. Do you believe me?”
Xiao Xi was stunned slightly. She looked at Nan Gongyin’s weak face with teary eyes, “Nan Gongyin, don’t say anything. Keep your strength and wait until your injury is healed.”
Nan Gongyin shook his head weakly, “I have used all my strength in the competition for marriage, but I still lost.” His eyes flashed a hint of sadness. He spat out another mouthful of blood on his chest, then he continued, “When I lost to Feng Lingran, I was convinced. I can only blame myself for not being able to win for the lady I love.”
Xiao Xi’s tears ran across her cheeks as she said, “Stop talking, I don’t want to listen to this. You poison me with voodoo, if anything happens to you, I will also be dead. Nan Gongyin, please hold on until my voodoo is cured, alright?”
“No, if it’s cured, how can you remember me?”
Nan Gongyin raised his hand; wiped away the tears on her face; spat out a few more blood in her mouth; his fingers slid her across her cheek weakly; and it dropped softly…
“Nan Gongyin!” Xiao Xi cried out loud.
Nu Er’s sharp nails attacked Xiao Sheng fiercely. Hearing Xiao Xi’s painful cry, her heart was also uncomfortable. Her peach blossom eyes stared at Xiao Sheng bloodily.
“Xiao Sheng, you animal, today will be your end.”
“Nu Er, you bitch who recognizes the fake Miss. Even if you are dead, you don’t have the face to see my dead sister.”
After that, the two fought again.
“His Royal Highness the Southern Lin Dynasty, His Highness…” Xi Er didn’t expect such a thing to happen. She crawled to Nan Gongyin’s side and looked at Nan Gongyin with her eyes closed on the ground in panic. Her face was pale as paper. Her trembling fingers stretched toward him.
“Don’t touch him.” Xiao Xi suddenly pushed Xi Er away. Her eyes were red and furious staring at Xi Er, “People can’t be shameless to this point. You knew that he was unwilling, but you still forced him due to your selfish desire. I really regret that I shouldn’t have asked Feng Lingran to take you back.”
Xi Er fell to the ground with tears all over her face. She grabbed a handful of mud and threw at Xiao Xi, “Are you good then? It’s fine for you to pester Lord Feng, but you still have His Royal Highness of the Southern Lin Dynasty. If you didn’t rush over, he wouldn’t be hurt for saving you. Xiao Xi, you are the most selfish and damnable person.”
Xiao Xi closed her eyes. Her face hurt a bit after being thrown at by the mud, but it was still incomparable to the tearing pain of her heart. Tears kept streaming down her cheeks.
Do you really think I want this? I don’t want this at all, but my heart is so painful. I can’t control…
Xi Er, what do you know?
A pair of black cloud patterns boots appeared next to Xiao Xi. Xi Er was slightly startled. She lifted up her teary face and saw the handsome man. His handsome face was like an iceberg which made Xi Er’s heart thumped a little.
The black boots suddenly moved, kicking the mud on the ground at Xi Er’s face. Her slightly opened mouth was too late to close. She ate a mouthful of mud, and her face was wounded by a flying rock.
“My future princess, you cheap maid isn’t qualified to teach her lesson yet.”
Xi Er opened her eyes abruptly and looked at Feng Lingran in disbelief.
“Lord, she still has His Royal Highness of the Southern Lin Dynasty…”
A cold light flashed, and a sword pointed at the tongue in Xi Er’s mouth.
“My future princess isn’t interested in a useless person.”
Xi Er didn’t even dare to breathe. She felt a chill down her spine. Without a doubt, if she said one more word, Feng Lingran’s sword would penetrate into her throat.
Xiao Xi opened her eyes, and the next moment, she was picked up by someone. He clamped her weak waist with one arm, and another hand pinched her cheek. His dark cold gaze looked at Xiao Xi’s dirty face. His gaze seemed like it was going to hack her into pieces.
“Feng Lingran, I…”
“I know that you are only doing this ridiculous move because you are cursed by Nan Gongyin’s voodoo.”
He heard it? Xiao Xi’s heart trembled. Then would Feng Lingran forgive what I did just now?
Wan Qiyu pressed his fingers on Nan Gongyin’s wrist. After a while, he raised his head, “His sign of life is very weak now. Lingran, do you want to take this chance and stab him to death?”
Xiao Xi’s heart tightened and grabbed Feng Lingran’s arm. She shook her head at Feng Lingran with a pale face and cried, “Feng Lingran, don’t kill him. If he is dead, I’m afraid I will die too.”
Wan Qiyu turned his attention to Xiao Xi’s crying face. He frowned as he said, “Little fox, do you distrust my medical skills? In this world, only I can snatch someone from Yama.”
“Dumbass Yu, you don’t brag anymore. If you are so powerful, how can you still not realize that I’m cursed by voodoo?”
Wan Qiyu’s mouth twitched. He threw away Nan Gongyin’s wrist, stood up and checked Xiao Xi’s pulse.
After a moment.
Wan Qiyu had not let go of Xiao Xi’s wrist yet.
Feng Lingran frowned, his dark eyes flashed an unknown darkness.
After a long while.
Wan Qiyu squeezed Xiao Xi’s pulse and laughed, “Little fox, are you lying to us? Your pulse is normal. There is no sign of voodoo.” He felt that his guess was reasonable. His gaze changed Nan Gongyin on the ground, then he continued to say, “To be honest, little fox, are you enchanted by Nan Gongyin’s beauty? You want to step on two boats with one foot, so you deliberately make up such a lie?”
Xiao Xi withdrew her wrist angrily, “If you aren’t capable, don’t brag.”
“Who isn’t capable? If I self-claim that I’m no. 2 in medical skills in the world, no one would dare to claim to be no. 1.”
Xiao Xi was lazy to bother about Wan Qiyu. This person’s bragging skills are top-notch. She looked at Feng Lingran. Her only hope now was that Feng Lingran could believe in her. If he doesn’t believe in her, she would probably be dead after Nan Gongyin was dead.
“Feng Lingran, do you trust me?”
