“I don’t want to.” Xiao Tianyao really looked too highly of her. Since when did she become so tall? However, Xiao Tianyao moved his hand to the board. “You don’t know how to play chess?” Now, didn’t all the young ladies in the capital studied chess and painting?
“Not really…” How can an orphan who can’t even pay her tuition had spare time and money to study something not useful?
“What board game do you know?”
“No board game.” Is rolling the dice counted? That was the only thing she knew, but she was not good at it. She can’t tell that game to Xiao Tianyao, right?
Xiao Tianyao looked at Lin Chujiu’s eyes and placed the chessboard on the table: "Benwang will teach you.”
“Okay.” If someone was willing to teach her, naturally she would accept it. Their traveling time was boring anyway. It’s just… …
The Game of Go was really complicated. “Can you speak slowly?”
Xiao Tianyao repeated it.
“I’m a little confused here in this spot… …”
Xiao Tianyao repeated it again with a dark face. Lin Chujiu noticed that the temperature inside the carriage has changed. She no longer dared to ask her doubts. No matter what Xiao Tianyao had said next, she just nodded her head: “I got it.” When she returned to Xiao Wangfu, she will ask Housekeeper Cao to find her several books about this game. By then, maybe she could understand it?
However, Lin Chujiu doesn’t think Xiao Tianyao will ask her to play this game all the time. She believed Xiao Tianyao will not have the nerve to ask her to play this game next time.
“Since you understand it now, accompany benwang to play the next game.” Xiao Tianyao put the pieces back in the jar. Then, signaled Lin Chujiu to take the first shot.
Lin Chujiu took the first shot but still losing. How can he expect a person who doesn’t know the rules win?
“No, you can’t go here!” Xiao Tianyao became powerless in a board game. He really didn’t expect that he will only get irritated in playing chess with Lin Chujiu.
“Oh, then I’ll go here.” Lin Chujiu immediately changed her path. Although she really couldn’t understand the difference between the two.
“Are you looking for death?” Xiao Tianyao has given up. He really wanted to ask Lin Xiang, how did he teach his daughter in the end? How can Lin Chujiu be so stupid in this game?
“I… …” Lin Chujiu wanted to take back her piece. But, Xiao Tianyao didn’t give her a chance: “Don’t regret it.” Xiao Tianyao said and put his piece to win.
“You lost.” People said that the good players were conscientious. Lin Chujiu doesn’t look like a fool, but how can her chess skill was so bad? She was a lot worse than a six-year-old child.
“If you lose, you lose.” Lin Chujiu didn’t expect to win against Xiao Tianyao anyway. This extremely brainy game was not her cup of tea.
Xiao Tianyao saved his comfort words and pushed the board in his hands: “Clean up the board.”
His tone of command was really hard to accept. But, Lin Chujiu acted like she didn’t sense anything. She put back the black and white stones in the jar. And put them with the board under the coffee table.
After putting them back, they arrived in Xiao Wangfu. The carriage gradually slowed down. Lin Chujiu was readying herself to get out of the carriage. When the carriage stopped, Lin Chujiu got up to open the door, but she suddenly heard Xiao Tianyao said: “Your medical skills are good. Although it was not as comparable as Divine Doctor Mo, you can still enter the top ten medical doctors in the four countries. Zian’s disease is not your problem. You don’t have to worry about it.”
After he finished, Xiao Tianyao opened the door first and got off the carriage. He walked inside the Xiao Wangfu, without waiting for Lin Chujiu.
Lin Chujiu looked at Xiao Tianyao’s departing figure and smiled. Although Xiao Tianyao scolded her and his comforting words came a little late, he admitted her ability.
Well, Lin Chujiu also admitted that when she heard Xiao Tianyao’s words, she felt a lot better.Thanks for reading, likes, and comments.
