The pale, handsome man closed his eyes. If it weren’t for the corners of his mouth that was stained red with blood, and the quilt was covered with scary blood, others would think that there was a beautiful sleeping man lying on the bed.
Ling Ru guessed it wrong, and he didn’t expect the consequences would be so serious. His face was very ugly, and he was a little flustered. He even regretted not believing the words of “Taoist Zhu Xu” and opened the door.
Minister Liu and Wei Zhongguo saw that Ling Ru stiffened and stood still. They knew that it was bad.
Xiao Xi walked in and saw Feng Lingran vomiting blood. She was shocked. Suddenly, she turned to Ling Ru, pointing the hossu at him tremblingly, and said angrily, “I didn’t let you in because I’m afraid you will disturb the regent’s rest. You disregard my advice and break in, causing regent to vomit blood. Prime minister, what is your intention?”
Ling Ru was taken aback, and the fingers hidden in his sleeves trembled uncontrollably, “Taoist, you stop the nonsense. I came here with the imperial decree…”
Xiao Xi smiled coldly, “The prime minister meant that the emperor asked you to make the regent vomit blood?”
Ling Ru angrily said, “How dare you, you dare to provoke the relationship between the emperor and the regent? You’re from the Southern Lin Dynasty, I think that you have bad intentions. Tell me, what is your purpose of going into the regent mansion?”
Xiao Xi waved her hossu and sneered, “The prime minister doesn’t need to put the blame on me. If the regent and I didn’t know about my capability after we met, then he begged me sincerely and even sent messengers to visit the temple after being possessed by the beautiful ghost, I wouldn’t come to the regent mansion at all.”
After Xiao Xi finished speaking, she glanced at Qin Wen.
Qin Wen understood, and he immediately said, “Taoist Zhu Xu’s words are true. Lord has also spoken about the taoist in front of me. He praised him a lot for his ability.”
Xiao Xi gave Qin Wen an appreciation look. Steward Qin is quite sensible and talented.
Ling Ru wanted to say something else, then Xiao Xi stretched out her hand to ask him leave.
“Regent’s vitality is badly hurt now. I need to cast spells on the regent to heal his injuries. Prime minister, talking more isn’t helpful here. Why don’t you save the effort and think about how to explain it to the Lord!”
Ling Ru’s whole old face was red. If he left like this now, everything would really be his fault.
Ling Ru opened his mouth, but Qin Wen spoke before him.
“Prime minister, Lord needs healing, please leave with the two ministers.”
Qin Wen lowered his voice, not giving Ling Ru face at all. So what if you have a high position in the imperial court? This isn’t prime minister mansion. It’s not a place you can do whatever you want.
Ling Ru was embarrassed and walked away.
Minister Liu and Wei Zhongguo followed Ling Ru and went out of the regent mansion. They were terrified.
“Prime minister, what should we do now?” Minister Liu asked worriedly.
Wei Zhongguo also looked at Ling Ru nervously. They couldn’t afford to offend Feng Lingran. They came here to grasp the weakness of Feng Lingran, but they didn’t expect things to become like this.
A sharp light flashed in Ling Ru’s brown eyes, “I want to see what show Feng Lingran is playing now?”
Minister Liu and Wei Zhongguo were both surprised.
Wei Zhongguo, “Teacher means Feng Lingran is pretending to be sick?”
Ling Ru glanced at Wei Zhongguo, stroked his beard and said, “I don’t believe that there are ghosts in this world.”
“Why didn’t the prime minister directly expose Feng Lingran when he was regent mansion?” Minister Liu looked at Ling Ru and was puzzled. If he exposed Feng Lingran on the spot, wouldn’t he be able to seize the evidence to impeach Feng Lingran?
“Feng Lingran is always fully prepared. Just that taoist alone is hard to deal with. How would Feng Lingran let us get any evidence?” Ling Ru squinted his eyes and said, “Minister Liu, you send someone to monitor the regent mansion to see what Feng Lingran is plotting for not attending imperial court recently.”
After a pause, he said again, “Feng Lingran, if you go against the emperor, you will not end well.”
Xiao Xi tore off the human skin mask on her face, walked to the bed, smiled and pushed the “unconscious” man on the bed, “Stop pretending, they are gone.”
Qin Wen also hurriedly came and saw the man on the bed who was almost exactly the same as Lord. If Miss Xi Er didn’t tear off the human skin mask, he would really think that Lord had returned.
The “unconscious” man on the bed opened his eyes. They were different from Feng Lingran’s dark eyes. His eyes seemed to be red. His slender fingers slid his cheek and tore off the human skin mask, revealing an unparalleled beautiful appearance.
It was Nu Er.
Qin Wen was taken aback for a moment, and he quickly recovered and said anxiously, “Miss Nu Er, get down quickly. This is Lord’s bed. No one can touch it. If this is discovered by Lord, how can I explain?”
Nu Er lifted the quilt and snorted, “Who cares about his bed?”
Xiao Xi looked up at Nu Er. She suddenly found that she was also a woman, but Nu Er was much taller than her. Beides, Nu Er didn’t have femininity at all when dressing in Feng Lingran’s robe, and Nu Er looked more masculine. Looking at the unparalleled face, he was really like an enchanting fairy.
Xiao Xi looked down at Nu Er’s flat chest. There were no ups and downs like a flat airport. Doubts flashed in Xiao Xi’s eyes, and her little hand stretched out…
Qin Wen was about to change the quilt on Feng Lingran’s bed, so as not to be found by Lord that the bed was slept by Nu Er, then he saw Xiao Xi stretching her hand toward Nu Er’s chest…
Qin Wen felt hot in his eye; he couldn’t look directly. This Miss Xi Er is too lewd…
Xiao Xi’s fingertips touched the fabric on Nu Er’s chest. Before she tried to find out whether it was soft or elastic, Nu Er grabbed her wrist.
“Miss, you want to touch Nu Er?”
He blurted out directly, making Xiao Xi blush.
Xiao Xi’s eyes noticed Qin Wen glanced at her like a monster, and Xiao Xi’s face flushed, “I just saw a bug on your clothes and I wanted to help you drive it away.”
Nu Er looked down. His clothes were very clean. There wasn’t even any dust, “Where are the bug?”
Xiao Xi continued to speak nonsense, “Your movement is so big that the bug got scared away.”
Nu Er, “…”
Two hours later.
Zi Yi hurried back and found Xiao Xi. Seeing a little girl who was at ease and content, his tense heart relaxed. He walked to Xiao Xi, raised his finger, and tapped her forehead.
The little girl held her painful forehead and pouted, “Master, you hit me as soon as you come back?”
“Does it hurt?”
“Why don’t you let me hit you?”
“Since you know it hurts, next time don’t urge me to return to the mansion if there isn’t any serious matter.”
The herbs he needed were hard to find, and it was even more difficult to gather them. These were not the most important things. Now the most important thing was that her body was gradually weakening. He must gather the herbs and cure the sword injury on her soul before her body died.
“Why is there no serious matter?” Xiao Xi said with a pouting mouth. “Today morning, the emperor sent someone to ask you to attend the morning court. If it weren’t for your disciple’s quick wit to cover it up for master, I’m afraid master’s regent position will be gone.”
Zi Yi’s arms crossed his chest, and his dark eyes flashed. He smiled and said, “I don’t care about the regent’s position, what does this have to do with me? Disciple, are you worried about Feng Lingran? Are you afraid that his regent position will be gone? Am I right?”
Xiao Xi frowned. Why is this related to Feng Lingran?
“Master, you think too much. I have nothing to do with Feng Lingran anymore.” Xiao Xi’s delicate face was thin and cold. This time he was caught by Feng Lingran and saw Xiao Gu in the dungeon covered in blood, then her heart was so cold.
Zi Yi suddenly felt a subtle discomfort in his heart when he heard the words. His dark eyes flashed strangely. Could it be…
Zi Yi reached out and hugged Xiao Xi in his arms, resting his perfect chin on her fluffy head. He said affectionately, “Little disciple, let’s give up on Feng Lingran. Master will be with you in the future.”
After Zi Yi finished speaking, he felt the uncomfortable feeling in his heart became stronger.
Xiao Xi didn’t know the changes in Zi Yi’s heart at all. She nodded and leaned in Zi Yi’s arms obediently. She had a feeling of peace of mind. Feng Lingran could give her this feeling before. After her soul came out, she could never feel that again. With so many things happening now, she and Feng Lingran would never be able to return to the original point.
“Master, can you stay with me longer?”
Xiao Xi suddenly raised her head and asked.
Zi Yi lowered his eyes, casting two beautiful shadows on his eyelids. He made a gentle smile, “Silly disciple, what are you talking about? Master will always be with you.”
He spent so long in the pagoda of the Southern Lin Dynasty, then he met such a little fox who could see him by chance. How could he bear to not be with her?
Xiao Xi smiled and shook her head slightly, “Master, I’m not greedy. I don’t need my master to accompany me forever. I just need master to accompany me for a while.”
Snow girl liked Zi Yi. She could see that. She also hoped that her master would have his own happiness. Now that snow girl had returned to the snow mountain, her master had not been tempted by snow girl yet. She only hoped that she could have Zi Yi’s love and protection during this time.
This was her master! The only master…
Zi Yi scratched her straight nose with a finger, “Silly disciple, you can be greedy for master.”
Xiao Xi trembled slightly and looked at Zi Yi in surprise. His handsome face was close at hand. There was a pampering affection in his eyes. A thought flashed in Xiao Xi’s mind. Is master really falling in love with me?
“Little disciple, you look at master like this, are you falling in love with master?” He smiled deeper.
Xiao Xi returned to her senses and curled the corner of her mouth slightly, “Master, you are not being serious again.”
She thought too much. Zi Yi only had the affection between master and apprentice; it wasn’t love.
“In broad daylight, it’s not good for master and disciple to hug like this right?” Nu Er’s weird voice came. His slender fingers stretched out to pull Xiao Xi out of Zi Yi’s arms. He looked at Zi Yi’s handsome face. Nu Er had the urge to ruin him every time he saw this face, “Although you are the master of Miss, don’t forget that whose body is this? Nu Er doesn’t hope that Miss will have anything to do with Feng Lingran in the future, I hope you respect yourself.
Zi Yi lost the temperature of Xiao Xi in his arms, and was a little bit lost. This was a feeling from the depths of his soul. He looked at the beautiful and unparalleled woman, “Why? Nu Er is jealous of seeing me and Xi’er getting along well?”
