Nu Er seemed to have gone mad. He couldn’t hear the sound of “Xi Er” at all. The sharp nails reached the chest of “Feng Lingran”. One inch longer would pierce his chest and dig out his heart.
“Don’t hurt my master.”
Xiao Xi yelled. She stretched out her small hand very quickly and grabbed Nu Er’s nails. Bright red blood flowed from the palm of her hand and dripped on Zi Yi’s chest.
Zi Yi saw Xiao Xi’s palm bleeding. He waved his palm to break Nu Er’s nails.
“Nu Er, are you crazy? She is your Miss. To save you, her soul is already very weak. You still hurt her like this?”
Zi Yi glanced at Nu Er coldly, ignoring the surprised expression on Nu Er’s face. His palm gently pressed against the back of Xiao Xi’s hand, “Little disciple, open your palm.”
Xiao Xi opened her palm, and she frowned due to the pain. The sharp nails had left two bloody wounds on her palm. Although they weren’t serious, they were shocking.
Zi Yi frowned when he saw this. He took out a white pill, crushed it into powder, and sprinkled it on the wound of her palm.
The medicine was magical. The wounds healed at a speed visible to the naked eye. After a while, the wounds were completely scarred. She didn’t feel pain at all.
Xiao Xi moved his hand slightly and looked at Zi Yi’s handsome face with clear eyes, “Master, your medicine is amazing.”
Zi Yi raised his eyebrows and said with a devilish smile, “If I don’t have this ability, how can you be the master of you little fox?”
“Miss, are you really… my Miss?”
Nu Er held Xiao Xi who was covered in blood in his arms and walked to “Xi Er”. His peach blossom eyes looked at the delicate face of “Xi Er. Especially those clear eyes, they were unlike Xi Er’s coward.
Nu Er thought of Xiao Xi’s soul coming out of her body to save him, then he thought of Zi Yi’s soul entering his body, breaking the talisman curse of the lewd Zhu Xu.
Nu Er burst into tears of joy. He firmly grasped the arm of “Xi Er” with one hand, “Miss, I’m sorry, I don’t know it is you, Nu Er is really damn…”
Xiao Xi saw that Nu Er loosened her arm, and he moved his nails toward his palm. Xiao Xi was shocked; she quickly grabbed Nu Er’s hand.
“Nu Er, it’s not your fault. I didn’t blame you, don’t hurt yourself.”
Xiao Xi saw the familiar pale face in Nu Er’s arms. Her body seemed to be stained red with blood. Her face turned pale. She tremblingly asked, “How could my body hurt so badly?”
Nu Er’s peach blossom eyes showed a strong killing intent, “It’s Nan Gongyin. The guards in his palace beat the lady like this. If Nu Er was late, Miss would be beaten to death alive. Nan Gongyin, just you wait. I will return the hurt you inflicted on Miss for a hundred times more.”
Xiao Xi’s eyes were dim. She never expected that Nan Gongyin would treat her like this. Being beaten to death alive, what kind of cruel punishment was that?
“Nu Er, do you know why Nan Gongyin wanted beat me to death?”
“The people around him couldn’t tolerate Miss, so he could only give up Miss for his close one.”
When Nu Er thought of rushing to save the lady, Nan Gongyin’s mother and Qiu Lan were all present except for the guards who beat her. His red eyes flashed a cold dark light. Yes, it was the two women who ordered the guards to beat Miss.
Even so, I will put the blame on Nan Gongyin. If it weren’t for Nan Gongyin, those two women wouldn’t have murdered the lady.
Nan Gongyin did it for his close one?
Xiao Xi quickly thought of the former empress. Could it be that the former empress could not tolerate me? Or it was Qiu Lan provoking in front of the former empress?
Regardless of the reason, Nan Gongyin wanted to beat her to death for his mother, which made her feel disappointed.
She thought that even if Nan Gongyin had another purpose for marrying her, he would at least protect her and not kill her so cruelly.
She thought too highly of herself.
In Nan Gongyin’s heart, she was just a dispensable pawn. It was as simple as raising a hand to destroy her pawn.
“Little disciple, get your soul out of her body and try to return to your own body.”
Zi Yi’s enchanting voice sounded in Xiao Xi’s ear.
Xiao Xi nodded. She closed her eyes, and her soul began to leave Xi Er’s body.
After a while.
The person in Zi Yi’s arms opened her eyes, and she shook her head uncomfortably at Zi Yi, “Master, my soul is particularly uncomfortable when it leaves Xi Er’s body. I have an ominous premonition that my soul will vanish at any time. ”
Zi Yi’s face changed slightly. He put his fingers on Xiao Xi’s pulse, and a force of power went into her body. After a while, Zi Yi frowned deeper and deeper.
“Little disciple, your body and soul have suffered a severe sword injury at the same time. Although the physical injury has been well treated, your soul injury has not received any treatment. In this case, your soul is very weak. If you leave her body rashly, your soul will not be able to bear the spiritual power of nature. Your soul will not vanish, but it is extremely detrimental to you. We don’t have to rush for now. When your soul’s injury is recovered, then it isn’t too late for your soul to return to your body.”
After a pause, Zi Yi said again, “But, master has to remind you that don’t give Xi’er soul the chance to suppress your soul. Master doesn’t want to see her; master only wants to see you.”
Xiao Xi looked at Zi Yi blankly. Her small face was paler than before like a fragile glass doll.
My soul is hurt by the sword too?
“Miss, you tell Nu Er, who hurt you?” Nu Er’s blood-red eyes seemed to kill. His eyes suddenly turned to “Feng Lingran”, and he gritted his teeth and asked, “Miss, is it him?”
Zi Yi saw that Nu Er’s gaze was bone-chilling, and he hurriedly said, “Nu Er, don’t get the wrong idea. I’m Zi Yi, not Feng Lingran. Don’t look at me with such murderous eyes.”
“I know.” The person he looked at was Feng Lingran.
“Nu Er, it’s not him; it’s Nan Gongyin.” Xiao Xi thought of Nightshade’s sword penetrating her shoulders, and Nan Gongyin’s eyes only looked at Xiao Xi in Feng Lingran’s arms from beginning to end. He never took a look at her. Even if she died in front of Nan Gongyin, he wouldn’t even frown.
Chess piece is still a chess piece after all!
“It’s that Nan Gongyin again.” Nu Er retracted his gaze and squeezed his fingers tightly. His red eyes were bloody and cold. He really hated that he could not kill Nan Gongyin.
Xiao Xi reached out and grabbed the corner of Nu Er’s clothes and shook it gently, “Nu Er, it’s not worth it to be angry with that kind of person. I will avenge for myself.”
Zi Yi nodded in agreement, “Nu Er, I think you should not interfere with this matter. Your Miss has her own ideas, so let her personally avenge herself!”
This little fox needs experience to become stronger so that she will not be bullied by others in the future.
For this little fox, isn’t Nan Gongyin the best object of practicing?
“Nu Er, remember, she is your Miss. What she says is an order, there is no but.”
Zi Yi’s voice became cold, and a powerful breath emanated from his body. Nu Er had never felt such a powerful breath before. Even his soul trembled because of it.
Nu Er looked at Zi Yi, his red eyes flashed with doubts. Who exactly is Zi Yi?
For now, regent mansion was undoubtedly the best place for Xiao Xi to heal her injuries.
Nu Er also lived in the regent mansion, guarding Xiao Xi’s severely injured body.
When Xiao Xi was back to the regent mansion again, her status had undergone a huge change. She was no longer a substitute for being restrained by the regent, and she was cherished by the regent.
Wan Qiyu came to the regent mansion and saw Xiao Xi sitting outside basking in the sun. His eyes flashed surprise, “Didn’t I hear that Feng Lingran has grounded you? Is he done being angry at you? He let you out again?”
Xiao Xi glanced at Wan Qiyu, smiled and said, “Dumbass Yu, is your butt recover?”
Wan Qiyu looked ugly for a while. He walked in front of Xiao Xi, knocked her head with a feather fan, lowered his voice and said, “Wasn’t it because of you little fox?”
Xiao Xi snatched the feather fan in Wan Qiyu’s hand. When he wanted to take it back, the feather fan rotated in a beautiful arc on her fingers, and he missed.
“Xi Xi, return the feather fan to me.”
Xiao Xi got up from the bamboo chair and patted the feather fan rhythmically in her palm, “Dumbass Yu, if you use it to beat my head next time, I promise that you will see its corpse.”
Wan Qiyu said nervously, “I was just making a joke with you. Xi Xi, don’t be so serious!”
Xiao Xi smiled. Suddenly, the feather fan knocked on Wan Qiyu’s head. Seeing that Wan Qiyu’s face was unsightly, she continued, “I was also just making a joke with you. You won’t be bothered by it right?”
Wan Qiyu’s mouth twitched slightly. Does this little fox know that man’s head shouldn’t be touched? Let alone being beaten?
“I’m a generous man. Why will I be bothered by you? Give me the feather fan.”
Wan Qiyu went to grab the feather fan in Xiao Xi’s hand again.
Xiao Xi moved her arm to the right. She didn’t return it. She said, “Help me save someone, and I will return the feather fan to you.”
Wan Qiyu followed Xiao Xi into the room and saw Nu Er in a red robe. His heart trembled fiercely, and he turned around instinctively, trying to get out.
The door closed in front of Wan Qiyu. His nose hit the door panel. He felt so painful that even his tears almost came out.
Wan Qiyu turned around again and saw Nu Er’s blood-red eyes. He trembled all over and looked at Xiao Xi bitterly, “Xi Xi, for the sake of my life saving grace to you, can you say some nice words in front of Miss Nu Er? To let her let me go?”
Xiao Xi raised her eyebrows and took a look at Nu Er. Seeing her red eyes staring at Wan Qiyu gloomily, Xiao Xi smiled and said to Wan Qiyu, “How difficult is it to let her let you go? You have to heal the wound of her Miss.”
Wan Qiyu followed the direction of the feather fan in Xiao Xi’s hand and saw a bloody woman on the bed. That pale and fragile face belonged to the original Xiao Xi.
Wan Qiyu was shocked; he couldn’t believe it, “Xi Xi, how could this be?”
Nu Er’s red eyes were full of cold killing intent, “All thanks to that beast, Nan Gongyin.”
