Xiao Xi seemed to see the timid little snow wolf from the past, and even the whine made her feel pitiful.
Xiao Xi’s gaze softened a bit, but she did not let go.
Xiao Gu was extremely afraid of Xiao Xi with this expression, and he was even more afraid that she would leave like the little fox and come back after a long time…
Xiao Gu whined twice, lowered his eyes, turned and walked to Xiao Qi. To Xiao Qi’s surprise, Xiao Gu leaned forward and licked Xiao Qi’s wound with the tip of his tongue.
Xiao Qi’s expression froze. He stepped backed abruptly, almost falling to the ground in shock.
“You, you, you… are you homosexual?”
Xiao Qi stuttered. He kept the finger behind his back, shaking constantly.
Xiao Gu’s beautiful eyes looked at Xiao Qi. His eyes were clear as if he didn’t understand what was homosexual.
Xiao Xi was also dumbfounded. What is in Xiao Qi’s mind? Xiao Gu licked his wounds. This is friendly and apologetic behavior.
You actually think of homosexual?
Can you not be so dirty in your mind?
“Xiao Qi, you know that Xiao Gu is still not very good at talking. He licked your wound to express his apologies. You as his master don’t fuss about it.” And don’t be so dirty in your mind.
Xiao Qi looked at Xiao Xi and let out a sigh of relief. His face twitched, “Xiao Gu used his tongue to express apology for biting me?”
Xiao Xi rolled her eyes at Xiao Qi.
Xiao Qi seemed to think of something and continued, “His behavior is too unlike human, but very like animal. Only animal would lick the wounds of itself and the other person.”
Xiao Xi’s heart thumped, and she said coldly, “Xiao Qi, I respect you as Xiao Gu’s master, but it doesn’t mean that you can insult Xiao Gu like this. If you don’t speak like a human, don’t blame me for being rude to you.”
The identity of Xiao Qi as a little snow wolf must never be known to anyone, not only Xiao Qi, but also Feng Lingran.
The wolf had a keen nature. Seeing that Xiao Xi’s attitude toward Xiao Qi had changed, Xiao Gu was not that friendly to Xiao Qi anymore.
“Miss, you misunderstood me. Why would I insult Xiao Gu? I’m Xiao Gu’s master! As a master, I can’t wait to protect my disciple! Whoever insults Xiao Gu is an insult to me.” Xiao Qi’s baby face showed a flattering smile, “Miss, am I right?”
“It’s best for you as a master to understand this truth.” Xiao Xi glanced at Xiao Qi irritably, and she was secretly relieved. This time, I dismissed Xiao Qi’s guess and helped Xiao Gu to cover up his identity.
After a pause, Xiao Xi said again, “Xiao Qi, you go out first. I have something to tell Little Gu.”
“Okay, Xiao Qi will be waiting for Xiao Gu outside.” Xiao Qi smiled apologetically and said, “Miss, what happened today…”
“Okay, I know/ I won’t tell Feng Lingran that you and Little Gu have been here.”
“Xiao Qi thanks Miss.”
After Xiao Qi went out.
Xiao Xi called Xiao Gu to the bed. She grabbed Xiao Gu’s hand and saw that his palms and fingertips had calluses. Xiao Xi’s eyes flashed a hint of pity. She sighed and lowered her voice so that only the two of them could hear, “Little Gu, you are no longer the little snow wolf you used to be. You have turned into a human. You have to change your habit as a wolf, you understand me?” After a pause, she continued, “I know that this is a bit harsh on you. However, I’m afraid that someone will know about your identity and treat you as a wolf demon.”
Xiao Gu nodded. Not sure if he understood Xiao Xi’s words or not.
He nodded to her because it was an instinct; an obedient instinct.
Since he was a little snow wolf, he had obeyed the little fox’s words. Whether it was right or wrong, as long as the little fox commanded, he would execute it. He would never do the things that made the little fox angry.
Although the little snow wolf couldn’t do well every time…
Seeing Xiao Gu nodded, Xiao Xi said with satisfaction, “In the future, you can’t show the scary expression to Xiao Qi and anyone else, don’t you understand me? Let alone bite them.”
Xiao Gu didn’t nod immediately this time, but he hesitated, pouted, and made a very low whine.
The little fox and the little snow wolf had been together since they were young, how could she not understand him?
“Little Gu, you listen to sister. If next time, someone forces you too hard or bullies you, you can punish him with your fist.” Xiao Xi squeezed her fist and waved it to Xiao Gu, “Didn’t Master Xiao Qi teach you martial arts? You need to learn how to utilize it, alright?”
Xiao Gu’s eyes lit up, and he nodded vigorously.
In the evening, Feng Lingran came back and walked into Xiao Xi’s room without changing his court clothes.
“Qin Wen said you haven’t had a sip of porridge all day. Do you have no appetite?”
Feng Lingran sat on the edge of Xiao Xi’s bed and saw the pale face of the little girl on the bed. His eyes darkened slightly.
Xiao Xi nodded honestly. She was not hungry and didn’t want to eat. Seeing Feng Lingran frowned, Xiao Xi immediately smiled and asked, “You, the King General of the Eastern Jin Dynasty, returned from a big victory. The emperor must have rewarded you with a lot of treasures, right? Is there a celebration in the palace today?”
Feng Lingran looked at Xiao Xi’s fragile smile and nodded slightly, “The emperor did reward a lot of treasures, why? You greedy little fox also wants to share my reward?” After a pause, he said, “I thought that there is also a weak little fox in my house, so I lost my interest in the celebration and came back.”
Xiao Xi’s eyes lit up. Feng Lingran is willing to give me a share of the treasure rewarded by the emperor? Really?
“Feng Lingran, don’t forget, if it weren’t for me, you wouldn’t have the chance to get the Kyushu Order and enter the forbidden area of Kyushu City.”
Feng Lingran saw that although the little fox was pale, she was still very greedy. He smiled, “There is some truth to it.”
“How is it just some truth? That was exactly the case right? I don’t care, Feng Lingran, your reward must be given half to me. This is only fair.”
“Well, if you get better, all the rewards I get will be yours.”
“Really?” Xiao Xi sat up from the bed happily, and her clear eyes shone with excitement.
Feng Lingran took Xiao Xi into his arms and moved behind her, holding her little hand, “When did I lie to you?”
Xiao Xi smiled. She leaned her small face against his chest. The familiar fragrant went into her nose. She looked up and saw his perfectly handsome chin, and the little fox smiled delightedly, “Feng Lingran is the Eastern Jin Dynasty’s regent and King General, if you lie to me. Wouldn’t the civil and military officials and the people of the world laugh at you if they know about it?”
Xiao Xi’s heart was filled with joy. Thinking that he didn’t even join the celebration party, she was touched again in her heart. He smiled and asked, “Feng Lingran, you are the general. If you don’t join the celebration, will the emperor have an opinion of you?”
Feng Lingran raised his eyebrows slightly, “Are you worried about me?”
Xiao Xi lowered her eyes and said, “Who is worried about you! I’m afraid you will drag me down after you fall.”
Feng Lingran smiled and squeezed her tall little nose. She raised her face and glared at him, “The Eastern Jin Dynasty’s military power is in my hands. The emperor will not do anything to me on the surface.”
“Then you mean, the emperor will secretly…”
“Secretly, he can’t fight me.” If the emperor could fight against him, the military power of the Eastern Jin Dynasty would have long been taken back by the emperor.
Xiao Xi saw the coldness flashing from the bottom of Feng Lingran’s eyes, and her heart trembled slightly. Thinking that Feng Lingran and the emperor were both surnamed Feng, her eyes widened. Could Feng Lingran be conspiring to dethrone the current emperor and replace himself?
They both have the same surname Feng; one is the emperor, and the other is regent. On the surface, there seems to be nothing, but in fact they are restraining each other. Feng Lingran reviews the memorials and does what the emperor should have done. How could the emperor be willing? The emperor can tolerate Feng Lingran for so many years because he is afraid of the power in Feng Lingran’s hands. In other words, if Feng Lingran did what the emperor should do, how could he be willing to be a regent? He wanted to rebel a long time ago right? It’s just that Feng Lingran hasn’t done it yet. There must be some a reason in it.
Xiao Xi was frightened. Her lips moved as she couldn’t help asking, “Feng Lingran, have you ever thought of treason?”
Feng Lingran’s eyes were cold, “Xi’er, if your words are to be heard by others, you will be beheaded.”
Xiao Xi’s back felt chilly, “If you really have this thought, my head will be beheaded sooner or later.”
Feng Lingran placed her palm on her pale face and rubbed her face lightly. The chill in her dark eyes gradually faded, and a gentle flashed in his eyes, “Don’t think nonsense about it. I won’t allow this head to be hurt.”
Feng Lingran moved his gaze to Xiao Xi’s bruise on her neck, then he moved his fingers down and gently touched the bruise with his fingers, “Xi’er, does it still hurt?”
Xiao Xi didn’t expect that he would suddenly touch her neck. The scars on it were caused by his own hands. Xiao Xi would still feel disappointed and uncomfortable after being reminded.
It was not that she didn’t want to forget, but it was so painful to forget that scene where her heart was invaded.
After a while.
Feng Lingran grabbed Xiao Xi’s little hand and placed it on his neck, and said to Xiao Xi who was dazed, “You can hurt me back for the injuries I caused.”
Xiao Xi was startled. Her palm touched his bulging apple, then her fingers gradually tightened, but soon, she loosened his neck, “I suddenly can’t do it.”
Although, she wanted him to try her pain at the time.
Feng Lingran looked at Xiao Xi with her eyelashes down. He pursed his thin lips, and his dark eyes flashed with annoyance, “It’s getting late, go to sleep! I will see you again tomorrow.”
After Xiao Xi was put down by Feng Lingran and covered by the quilt, Feng Lingran left.
Ling Er was lying next to the Spirit Epiphyllum, closed its eyes, and fell into meditation as if it didn’t know what was happening in the room.
The fragrance of Spirit Epiphyllum filled the room. Xiao Xi opened her eyes and looked at the roof without feeling sleepy.
Regent rewarded Qin Guan with a big beauty. This was gratifying to Qin Guan, but the regent also said that if he wanted to subdue this beauty, he must not undo her acupuncture points. He must remove all her arrogance and make her lose her virginity before undoing her acupuncture points.
