Eastern Jin Dynasty, regent mansion.
Xiao Xi sat on the cane chair in front of the room. Her pale little face was sunbathing. She had been in the room long enough, Wan Qiyu said that the sun would help her recover.
Xiao Xi’s mouth twitched and smiled. That pale little face was as beautiful as a pear blossom.
Feng Lingran turned back to the mansion and saw the little girl on the cane chair from a distance. After standing for a while, seeing the little girl opened his eyes, he turned and left.
Xiao Xi turned her eyes and saw the noble back of the court clothes in the sun. Her brows frowned. Was he looking at me just now?
Feng Lingran’s back disappeared in Xiao Xi’s gaze, and a shadow suddenly appeared beside the cane chair.
Xiao Xi retracted his gaze and saw a man in a white robe with a feather fan in his hand. His handsome face had a gentle and elegant smile.
“Xi Xi, what do you think is different about me today?”
He has his chest straight, looking quite dashing.
Xiao Xi glanced at him up and down, and smiled, “Seeing your smug expression, is it all done?”
Wan Qiyu moved his finger slightly, closed the feather fan, shook his head and sighed softly, “You little fox is really boring, you don’t cooperate with me at all.”
Xiao Xi smiled deeper. In an instant, there was a strange movement in her eyes, and he took another look at Wan Qiyu.
Wan Qiyu laughed immediately, “Xi Xi, do you think I’m getting more handsome? I’m not worse than Feng Lingran?”
Xiao Xi nodded and said with a smile, “Dumbass Yu, your current expression gives me a feeling.”
“You have someone to love.”
The feather fan in Wan Qiyu’s hand tapped on Xiao Xi’s head, and his handsome face was slightly red, “Only you little fox has someone to love. I’m just paying more attentions to my own image. After all, I have a splendid appearance, and I’m also the well-known miracle-working doctor who is praised by everyone. I must be worthy of the title of miracle-working doctor.”
Xiao Xi thought Wan Qiyu today was particularly interesting. She just said one thing, did he need to explain so much?
He probably didn’t know that explanation was to cover up.
“Okay, okay, okay.” Xiao Xi said three times “Okay”, and she continued, “You have a perfect image and superb medical skills. I will go out to see you tomorrow morning.”
Wan Qiyu smiled with a handsome face. He was stunned when he heard the back. He looked at Xiao Xi and said, “Xi Xi, your injury is not fully recovered yet, so you are not suitable for going out. Besides, the things are with me. They won’t run away, so you can rest a few more days before getting it!”
Xiao Xi was silent for a moment. She slowly said, “If I take what belongs to me as soon as possible, I can tell you about the snow girl as soon as possible.”
“This… In that case, I will be waiting for you outside the mansion tomorrow morning.”
“…” He is really realistic.
At night, Xiao Xi was lying on the bed with her eyes wide open. She was thinking about something in her mind as she was looking at the roof in a daze.
Suddenly, the light went out and the room was dark. Before Xiao Xi recovered, she was covered by a big hand.
Who is it?
Xiao Xi’s heart trembled slightly. She felt that the hand covering her mouth was cold without any temperature like a cold-blooded animal. It held its prey under its body, then it bit and devoured its prey bit by bit.
Xiao Xi’s small face turned pale. Suddenly, she felt his other big palm pressured on her right hand. The palm moved up along her right hand. A cold and sticky touch made her have a goosebump.
“Who the hell are you?”
With her mouth covered, Xiao Xi’s voice was vague.
There was no sound, and she couldn’t see his face in the darkness. She only feltl a pair of cold, frightening dark eyes staring at her at the moment.
Is he Feng Lingran?
Xiao Xi quickly denied the guess in his mind. Feng Lingran’s body is warm, unlike the man who is cold like a corpse.
But this person is not Nu Er, Nu Er is decisive in killing. She will not torture the “prey” like this.
Cold and sticky fingers touched the upper end of her arm. He shook gently, and her entire sleeve was sprinkled on the bed into rags. His fingertips were on her shoulders, and they moved down along her shoulders. The cold and chilly touch accompanied by itching. Xiao Xi gasped as the hand was almost touching her wound. What does this man want to do?
Xiao Xi’s forehead was full of sweat. Suddenly, she lifted her knee and threw it up.
He snorted disdainfully as if he had already prepared for it. He patted her knee down with his palm.
The pain came from the knee and quickly spread all over the body.
This body was too weak. She wasn’t his opponent at all. After being patted by him, Xiao Xi felt that he could not get out of bed with this leg.
Something cut the wound on Xiao Xi’s shoulder, and her painful tears rolled down. As she was furious, she bit ruthlessly on his hand. After tasting the blood, she still didn’t let go.
The strange dark eyes in the dark night flashed a hint of displeasure. He pressed his finger on her neck, making her open her mouth due to pain. When he retrieved his hand, some cold and wet liquid dripped on Xiao Xi’s face.
It’s his blood.
The medicine powder spilled into Xiao Xi’s open wound. She groaned. The pain was extreme. Even the flesh on her wound was twitching slightly.
Xiao Xi broke into cold sweat. Her breathing was a little anxious. She gritted his teeth and said, “Who are you? If you want to use me to deal with Feng Lingran, then you are wrong. I’m worthless in Feng Lingran’s eyes. My injury was caused by him as well.”
He was stunned for a moment, then his nose chuckled. His cold fingers touched Xiao Xi’s smooth face before disappearing.
The candlelight lit up. Xiao Xi held herself up and glanced at the closed door and window. They didn’t move at all. Her face was even more pale. Could it be that the person who came in just now… isn’t a human at all?
Xiao Xi looked down. Her wound was open; she could see the bright red flesh inside, but no blood came out of the wound. Half of her sleeve was gone, and rags were all over the bed. This was the proof that he did it.
Xiao Xi’s brow furrowed deeper and deeper. What kind of medicine did he sprinkle on my wound? Is the purpose of this really as what I’m thinking?
Xiao Xi closed her eyes. She felt that all sorts of misfortune happened to her after she crossover. She couldn’t even get peace after she was dead.
Early in the morning, just after Feng Lingran went to the imperial court, a carriage came and stopped at the gate of the regent mansion.
About 15 minutes, a young girl walked out of the regent mansion. When she saw the carriage at the gate of the regent mansion, the middle-aged coachman blinked at her. A hint of understanding revealed in her eyes, then she got into the carriage.
The coachman shouted and drove away.
About half an hour later, the carriage stopped. When Xiao Xi lifted the curtain, the middle-aged coachman smiled and held up his white and slender fingers. At first glance, it was the hand of the noble son instead of the rough man.
Xiao Xi’s shoulder was injured, and it was opened up last night, so he held her hand to help her getting down from the carriage.
Xiao Xi followed him into a strange house. As soon as he entered the house, the middle-aged coachman tore off the human skin mask on his face and took off his clothes outside. That handsome face appeared before Xiao Xi.
“Xi Xi, come with me.”
Wan Qiyu grabbed Xiao Xi’s hand and led her to a room.
Xiao Xi glanced at the man next to him, then she looked at the big palm holding her hand. This Dumbass Yu wasn’t good to me previously, but he seems to have a change recently.
There must be something wrong in it.
Xiao Xi squinted her clear eyes and followed him into the room. What she saw was the treasure chest moved out of the forbidden area.
Xiao Xi’s heart trembled. Thinking of what Nu Er had said, she pulled her small hand away from Wan Qiyu’s palm, walked toward the treasure chest, bent down, and gently placed her small hand on the treasure chest. Her hand moved inch by inch, and her heart slowly became heavy. For some reason, she felt sad when she touched this treasure chest.
Xiao Xi’s eyes were sour. Tears almost fell from her eyes. As her trembling fingers were about to open the treasure chest.
Wan Qiyu pressed on her big palm, then he smiled and said, “Xi Xi, I have done everything you said. Should you tell me about the snow girl?”
Wan Qiyu saw the water in Xiao Xi’s eyes and said in surprise, “Xi Xi, don’t cry! I didn’t bully you.”
Xiao Xi raised her head, held back the tears in her eyes, sniffed, and said, “This is none of your matter.”
She flipped and pressed his hand on the treasure chest. She looked into Wan Qiyu’s eyes as she asked, “Dumbass Yu, what do you feel?”
Wan Qiyu smiled and said, “Xi Xi, your hands are so smooth and tender.”
Xiao Xi looked at the smirk on Wan Qiyu’s face, and she quickly pulled away her little hand. She said with dislike, “You’re really shameless.”
Wan Qiyu smiled without denying it. He retrieved his palm from the treasure box, then he continued, “Xi Xi, you haven’t told me about that snow girl…”
Xiao Xi was puzzled. Wan Qiyu didn’t feel sadness with his hand on the treasure chest. That is to say, I’m the only one to feel this sad emotion when my hand is on the treasure? But the owner of this hand is… Xi Er , not mine.
Is it true that Nu Er’s real Miss is not me at all, but Xi Er?
But why Nu Er is so certain that I’m her Miss?
Xiao Xi’s temple hurts a bit. She sighed in her heart. Forget it, let’s not think about this kind of troublesome matter for the time being. I should open the treasure chest to see what’s inside first!
“Snow girl lives on the top of the snow-capped mountains, and ordinary people like you can’t see her.” Xiao Xi saw Wan Qiyu’s handsome face’s expression turned from high-spirited to disappointed. She tapped on his shoulder and sighed, “Moreover, I also want to tell you a bad news. Snow girl cannot approach you. If she approaches you, you will feel very cold. Therefore, you and her aren’t meant to be.”
“Aren’t meant to be?” Wan Qiyu twitched his mouth, then he said, “Little fox, what nonsense are you thinking about? I didn’t say that I like her.”
