Feng Lingran’s fingers tightened. He suddenly wanted to kill the little girl in his arms, then his heart might not hurt so much.
“Ah… it hurts…”
Xiao Xi’s waist felt a tight pain. She burst into tears, and the signal to Nan Gongyin for help became stronger.
“Feng Lingran, let my crown princess, otherwise, I will let my men kill that lowly maid now.”
The guard’s sword was lying on the neck of “Xi Er”. Nan Gongyin didn’t even look at “Xi Er” when he said this. The cold dark eyes were staring at Feng Lingran. He only cared about Xiao Xi, but he didn’t know that . Now Xiao Xi’s soul was no longer there. This one was just a body without a soul.
“Xi Er” had a sword on her neck. If she moved a little, her neck would be sliced open. She looked at Feng Lingran and the little girl in his arms, and she smiled.
Seeing the smile on her face, the guard felt that the girl was agitated. She could even still smile at this moment.
“Lord, you take Xiao Xi away! Leave me alone.”
If Feng Lingran dragged her into her arms and saved her, she still had hope about it. However, this hope was gone completely at this moment. Because when Feng Lingran pushed her away to snatch Xiao Xi, he had already made a choice to abandon her and get Xiao Xi.
It doesn’t matter. I’m just staying in Xi Er’s body. If this body is dead, my soul will not die. I will have a chance to return to my body after all.
But why… I feel so uncomfortable? Is this Xi Er’s emotions? Xi Er also knows that Feng Lingran has decided to abandon her?
“Xi Er” suddenly felt a little sympathy for the owner of this body. This was probably feeling sympathy for the same fate!
Feng Lingran glanced back at “Xi Er”, and dark eyes flashed with weird luster. Seeing the tears in “Xi Er”‘s eyes, his eyebrows frowned. His heart suddenly felt a little uncomfortable.
Feng Lingran moved his gaze to Nan Gongyin’s body, calmed his expression, and said coldly, “Let Wan Qiyu go.”
Nan Gongyin was a little surprised as if it was weird for Feng Lingran to suddenly mention about letting Wan Qiyu go.
“I promise you that I can release Wan Qiyu, but you must leave the crown princess here.”
Feng Lingran squeezed Xiao Xi’s soft waist hard, and she yelled in pain. Nan Gongyin’s face changed seeing that. Feng Lingran said coldly, “I don’t like bargaining.”
Nan Gongyin stared at him with hatred. He issued a command, “Go and release Wan Qiyu.”
The crown princess was in Feng Lingran’s hands, and the crown prince was so nervous about the princess, so the guards naturally didn’t dare to slow down and ran to release the person quickly.
About a stick of incense, Wan Qiyu was released. He smiled happily when he saw Fang Zhongjun’s cold-faced man.
“Lingran, you really are my good brother, I knew you would come to save me.”
“Stop talking nonsense and go.”
Feng Lingran glanced at Wan Qiyu displeasedly. This guy who couldn’t do anything right always caused him troubles.
Wan Qiyu was silent. Seeing that Feng Lingran was unhappy, he was like a child who had made a mistake and did not dare to offend Feng Lingran.
Leaving the Southern Lin Dynasty Palace.
Nan Gongyin said with a pale face: “Feng Lingran, now you are outside the palace, you can leave safely and return Xi’er to me.”
Seeing Feng Lingran keeping silent, Nan Gongyin’s expression became colder, and the archer outside the palace pointed at Feng Lingran and Wan Qiyu.
“Xi Er” was also being held hostage by a guard.
Nan Gongyin said with threat, “Maybe my people can’t do anything to you, but it’s easy to kill Wan Qiyu. Feng Lingran, you have to think clearly, do you want my crown princess? Or you want the lives of your brother and this lowly maid?”
Nan Gongyin cast a look at the guard. The sword in the guard’s hand cut through the neck of “Xi Er”, and the blood flowed down from her white skin.
The guard seemed to feel that the injury to “Xi Er”‘s neck was too light, and he suddenly pierced “Xi Er”‘s shoulder bone.
The pain came too suddenly. “Xi Er” screamed. It was so painful that she couldn’t breathe. She turned pale when she saw the sword penetrate her shoulder bone.
Wan Qiyu yelled in surprise. He quickly ran to “Xi Er”, trying to tap her acupuncture point to stop the bleeding, but a sword light flashed. It almost cut off his finger.
Wan Qiyu said angrily at Nan Gongyin, “Hurry up and let me stop her bleeding, do you know that she is…”
“Xi Er” suddenly grabbed Wan Qiyu’s arm. Her shoulder was so painful. Every meridian was in severe pain. She said with trembling lips, “Mister Yu, stop talking, you and Lord go quickly. Leave me alone, I’m fine… it’s fine…”
Wan Qiyu almost said the identity of “Xi Er”. He looked at the pale girl shaking her head, and he suddenly thought of what she said. Her soul was possessing Xi Er’s body, that meant even if Xi Er died, Xiao Xi’s soul would not die. As long as Feng Lingran brought Xiao Xi’s body away, her soul would have a chance to return to her body.
Wan Qiyu saw that “Xi Er”‘s shoulder was stained red with blood, and he scolded with a smile, “You little girl, you are really selfish.”
“Xi Er” couldn’t even smile. She understood what Wan Qiyu meant, saying that she ignored Xi Er’s life and death and only cared about herself.
She didn’t deny it. She looked at Feng Lingran and said, So what? Apart from Wan Qiyu, who would believe that my soul is in Xi Er’s body?
Let alone Nan Gongyin? He and Xiao Xi have been together for these two days, and he has long understood Xiao Xi’s strangeness, but he chose to deceive himself and others. Is this not obvious enough?
What Nan Gongyin wants is Xiao Xi, and so does Feng Lingran. They can ignore whether Xiao Xi is normal or a fool. As long as Xiao Xi is useful to them, that’s enough.
Sometimes, it’s not good for people to understand too much. It’s better to be stupid, believing that others treat you well without any purpose…
Wan Qiyu took a deep look at Xiao Xi and stood up, “You… take care.”
After that, Wan Qiyu turned around and closed his eyes. I tried to drain the blood from her body countless times and used it for Feng Lingran as an antidote. Isn’t this a good opportunity for me? Xiao Xi is a fool without a soul. After Feng Lingran takes her away, I will have more opportunities.
But… Seeing the painful and strong eyes of “Xi Er”, Wan Qiyu suddenly felt that he was an asshole.
Nan Gongyin didn’t care about the life and death of “Xi Er” at all. His eyes were always staring at the girl in Feng Lingran’s arms. No one could shake him.
When the guard saw that Wan Qiyu was leaving with Feng Lingran and the crown princess, he suddenly drew out the sword in “Xi Er’s” shoulder bone. The blood was sprayed out and splashed on Nan Gongyin’s white robe. No one cared about its life and death.
“Xi Er” also had blood flowing out of her mouth. Her clothes were already stained with blood. She had lost senses of her body. She suddenly felt a little fuzzy in her vision…
Am I going to die? Is my soul leaving the body again?
This time, when my soul returns to the body, I will never bother Nan Gongyin… and Feng Lingran…
I will remember that all they want… is Xiao Xi’s body… not the soul.
