Looking at his graceful writing, free and unconstrained use in the brush, Murong Shu Qing guessed that he should draw the plum flower. For her own ridiculous thought and anticipation, Murong Shu Qing moved forward and entered the plum forest that she had been watching for several days, only for the reason beside that picture scroll, where two cups of steam green tea were placed on!
Slowly entering the plum forest, she stopped in front of the low table, Murong Shu Qing’s gaze was completely drawn on that picture scroll that the ink was still wet. The painting was really a plum flower, but there was no colorful flower, there was only a strong plum branch, it was glowing insolently and intertwining in this one area. The composition of the painting was messy, it looked so casual and indolent, it also looked wild and unruly, so one could not see the theme and catch people’s attentions.
Picking up the writing brush that was still as wet as the picture scroll, Murong Shu Qing was pondering with a light smile. Lightly raising her wrist, she wrote a message on the middle of the picture scroll, a couple of the poem. Her quick, elegant and soft calligraphy style matched up with this willful, arrogant and cold plum, they would bring out the best of each other. Murong Shu Qing put down the writing brush, a slightly hoarse voice came through from behind her, but it sounded like a low chanting sound: “The cool breeze possesses the bone of the supernatural entity, the cool and elegant should be as good as a jade. Good sentence.”
The sudden sound made Murong Shu Qing’s heart slightly startled, she still saw that he was sitting on that side a moment ago, and this person was already behind her in a blink of an eye. Slowly turning around, she could finally see this red dress person’s face clearly ____
His eyes were as if they were deep and calm as a moon and deep as a puzzling man.
His face was as if it was a clean and spotless jade ice sculpture.
His lips were as if they were a beautiful red plum and magnificently full.
As if ____
As if ____
Murong Shu Qing captured all of her attentions into the person’s face who was in front of her, but she did not know what kind of words to use to describe his face for a moment. It was perfect and without any blemish, a man who also looked as beautiful as a woman, like a cool breeze bamboo dew, and also a harsh snow brash. He had already transcended into any gender accepted argument.
So after looking at him for an incense stick time (15 min), Murong Shu Qing finally recovered in a flash, she stroke her forehead and lightly smiled. Thinking that she was ‘already old’, but she was still puzzled like a young 17-18 years old girl, lightly coughing, Murong Shu Qing lightly smiled and sighed: “I forget my manners.”
The red dress person was used to it, and his face did not have any expression. But the corner of his mouth lightly stroke out, and lazily answered: “At the very least, you can still speak.” His low and light voice appeared to be laughing, but it also made people feel cold. It was not the type like a frigid and cold blooded person, also not the cruel, untamed and brash person who made people feel at a loss. It was just the type like a pure cold, apathetic, ignorant and estranged person, it was just enough to make people not knowing how to interact with him.
Murong Shu Qing laughingly withdrew her sight, should she be able to see this kind of immortal beauty and wonderful appearance, and still able to speak and feel any pride?! Picking up the warm green tea that was on the low table and poured it down lightly, Murong Shu Qing’s eyes were suddenly bright, it was the highest quality spring fruity tea!! This kind of tea could only be produced on the Ling (spirit/quick) Quan (spring) Shanshang (mountain) in Dong Yu, the output was not many, and hard to look for, basically it was wild. She also looked for it and only found a little of the tea a few years ago, unexpectedly, she could drink it here.
“Qing-er!” But unfortunately, after only tasting a mouthful, an angry sound of a man’s voice broke this comfortable beautiful scenery of the setting sun.
Not having time to put down the green tea that was on her hand, Qi Rui’s big and tall figure already rapidly came to Murong Shu Qing’s side, he grabbed her wrist, and with his urgent tone along with his anger and anxiousness, he said: “I said that you were not allowed to come here, did you not understand it?!! Go with me!” Finished speaking, Qi Rui lightly nodded his head towards that red dress person, left an apologetic sentence, and pulled Murong Shu Qing to hurriedly leave this plum forest.
The red dress person did not speak anything either, and just watched at the two people who were leaving in a hurry, he indifferently turned around and continued to lean by the side of the law table. Looking at the setting sun, but when his gaze was sweeping past that ink painting, his cold lips lightly perked up.
Murong Shu Qing was practically being dragged by Qi Rui to leave the fig trees forest, but she was only thinking now that it was a pity for that cup of top-notch spring fruity tea!
Along the way, Qi Rui finally stopped his footsteps in front of Jing Shui Ya Xiu, and he was directly facing Murong Shu Qing’s eyes. Both of his hands were tightly grasping her arms, his face showed a solemn and cold expression, and he said and commanded: “In the future, you are not allowed to enter the forest, do you hear me?!”
This was the first time that she had ever seen Qi Rui was so annoyed and angry like this, without struggling both of her arms that were already hurt her, Murong Shu Qing faintly said: “Give me an explanation.”
“There is no explanation, you only need to remember that you are not allowed to enter it again.” Qi Rui angrily roared lowly, and was not aware that he was tightening up his hands, that made Murong Shu Qing feel hurt even more and slightly knitted her eyebrows. But very quickly, a black shadow rapidly flashed through, and Murong Shu Qing’s hands were free.
Qi Rui was also a person who trained martial arts, but he was not Yan Yu’s opponent, after several moves, he was already forced to retreat about five meters from Murong Shu Qing.
Gently massaging her arms, Murong Shu Qing lowly said: “Yan Yu, that is enough.”
With a single heavy punch, Qi Rui was hit very far, Yan Yu just restrained from his punch and kick, and with one dodge, he did not retreat but he was rather standing behind Murong Shu Qing. Receiving this unfeeling black dress person’s final punch, Qi Rui could only feel a sharp pain. This person’s martial arts were really high, his skill was higher than his ability, but looking that he was protecting Qing-er like this, could it be that he was her bodyguard?!
Looking at the black dress man again, except for that dark clothing, he was not able to see his appearance, but his cold, cruel, threatening and imposing manner threatened him all along. He really did not have any sense of his existence a moment ago, there was no trace of him, so he was freely this arrogant and overbearing. Who could have thought that Qing-er could have this type of extraordinary talent by her side.
Holding his still aching palm, Qi Rui walked to the side of Murong Shu Qing, while he lowly sighed and said: “Qing-er, eldest brother is doing this for your own good.”
Murong Shu Qing still did not speak and was just looking at him, her usually smiling eyes, were looking straight at Qi Rui with persistence, she would not accept this kind of explanation.
Murong Shu Qing’s uncompromising look, made Qi Rui felt defeated somewhat, he knew that if he did not explain it clearly, Qing-er would definitely not drop this subject. Pondering for a movement, Qi Rui helplessly said it again: “Alright, that person is very dangerous, he can take your life at any time.” Even though Qing-er had this martial expert by her side, but that person’s moodiness were changeable easily, he was unfeeling and heartless, so he would still be anxious for her incessantly.
“Who is he?” This was the thing that Murong Shu Qing wanted to know the most now.
“He is Chu Yin, you probably do not know who he is, but…..” Qi Rui Only said a few words, but Murong Shu Qing’s startling voice had already interrupted.
“The Demonic Physician Chu Yin?!” Murong Shu Qing found it hard to believe, that the person whom she was sipping tea, talking, composing poetry a moment ago, was actually the respected and feared by the Jiang Hu’s people, the Demonic Physician Chu Yin! She knew about him because of Shen Xiao Yun, it was said that when he was sending some people to go and find the Demonic Physician, some of them could not find him, and some of them were gone forever. The rumor said that this person had never treated anybody on the basis of saving people, for him, human life was just like a grass. But his medical expertise was actually superb, the rumor in Jiang Hu was that there was nobody who could not be saved by him, but it was only because he did not want to save the people.
“You knew him?” Qi Rui was amazed that this daughter from the wealthy family unexpectedly knew about that Demonic Physician from Jiang Hu. But looking at that black figure who was behind her and not moving at all, he completely believed, this past three years, Shu Qing was not the Shu Qing whom he was familiar with anymore. But no matter what, she was still his younger sister whom he cherished the most, he could not let her to have any mishap. Qi Rui once again approached Murong Shu Qing, just liked when she was still a child, he lightly patted Murong Shu Qing’s shoulder, and softly coaxed and said: “This is also good, since you know him, you should understand elder brother’s intention. Every person who intrudes the plum forest, can not come out alive, even though you can escape unscathed today, but that person’s moodiness can change easily. You may not be lucky next time, so do not go into the plum forest anymore in the future, do you understand?”
Getting a warm feeling on her shoulder that was gently caressed, and his helpless urging, it made her think of her far away older brothers. When they were children, they would also tell her like this, that she had to wait for them at the end of the school, and could not peel the apple on her own because the knife was very sharp, but they could only long for each other from far away now. Her eyes were already slightly moist, so Murong Shu Qing closed her sad eyes, and lowered her head, and let her heart to completely finish her longing.
Qi Rui looked that Murong Shu Qing suddenly lowered her head, he thought that he was too strict on her, so he softly let Murong Shu Qing to lean on his shoulder, and comfortingly and softly rubbing her satin and soft long hair. Murong Shu Qing was softly leaning on Qi Rui’s wide and warm shoulders, so her mood was slowly calmed down. Then she just straightened up her body, and asked: “He is here now because of Jing Shui.” She heard from last time that he had already found the person who could treat Jing Shui’s birthmark, it seemed now that it should be Chu Yin.
“Yes, I spent three years time looking for him, two years time begging him, but he still has not agreed to treat Jing Shui’s face.” Bringing this up, Qi Rui’s face was filled with haziness. Ever since he found out on that day, that the Demonic Physician could cure Jing Shui, he had not given up looking for him. But even after he exhausted a lot methods to find him, he had actually gained nothing in the end. Finally, he actually ran into the Demonic Physician Chu Yin who loved the plum at the plum forest behind the mountain of his own courtyard. He originally thought that he could smoothly ask him to help Jing Shui’s face, but who would have thought that two years had past, and he was still unable to get him to agree to it. How could this not make him a depressed person. But after observing him these last two years, even though Chu Yin looked exactly as fearful as what the rumor said, but he was also a dangerous person. Thinking like this, Qi Rui solemnly said to Murong Shu Qing again: “Qing-er, promise elder brother, do not go to the plum forest again.”
Three years looking for him, and two years of waiting, she was afraid that this foolish elder brother’s feeling towards Jing Shui, was really deep. “I am hungry, let’s go and eat.” Murong Shu Qing had not answered Qi Rui yet, and just pulled his hand to enter that comfortable and simple Jing Shui Ya Xu.
Let me guess, it probably won’t take too long for MSQ to get Chu Yin to agree to treat Jing Shui. I’m sure she has a way to do it. Anybody agrees with me? 😃
