Chapter 1103: Sleep on the Floor
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Chu Liuyue really didn’t know if she should praise His Grace for having foresight and being skillful and extremely intelligent. He actually prepared this kind of thing beforehand?!
But seeing that someone seemed to have self-restraint, Chu Liuyue still cooperated with him and ‘invited’ him to sleep on the floor.
Originally, she didn’t want Rong Xiu to stay here. But considering that there were quite a few soldiers guarding outside, it would be inappropriate for her to chase him out like that. In the end, Chu Liuyue chose to take a step back and allow him to stay.
His Grace was very satisfied with this outcome. It’s good to get accustomed to some things beforehand.
In the end, the two of them peacefully and harmoniously started their night of not sharing the same bed or pillow.
Chu Liuyue was on the bed, and Rong Xiu was on the floor.
She was still slightly hesitant at the start, but when she saw that Rong Xiu politely took out two blankets and swiftly prepared one bed, leaving another blanket behind, Chu Liuyue felt that her hesitation was unnecessary.
Then, she decisively closed her eyes and planned to sleep.
In the dark night, the lights in the room were extinguished one by one.
The surroundings darkened.
Rong Xiu seemed to have already laid down not far away from her.
Actually, this bedroom was very big, and there was a very large space to place the blanket. However, Rong Xiu tried his best to fight for the last bit of compromise.
According to what he said, it was already very pitiful that he was forced to separate from his newly elected princess consort. If they were too far apart, he still wouldn’t sleep well. Hence, Chu Liuyue allowed him to sleep right beside the bed, and she also… set up a barrier.
It was completely silent as Chu Liuyue lay on the bed, but she couldn’t really sleep.
After some time, she finally opened her eyes.
The moonlight shone in through the windows. It was as clear as water as it reflected a faint shadow on the ground.
Chu Liuyue tilted her hand and glanced at Rong Xiu, who was sleeping not far away. From her side, she could see the latter’s sleeping features very accurately.
He slept on his arm, and he curled his leg.
Even if the surrounding lights were dim, the moonlight still clearly outlined every perfect line on his face.
The anxiety and uneasiness at the bottom of Chu Liuyue’s heart suddenly faded away. It was as if she could overcome all obstacles as long as this person was by her side.
She blinked and turned around slightly to take a closer look.
Even when he was sleeping, he still looked very handsome.
It was fine if he didn’t open his eyes. But once he opened them, they were alluring as if they could drag someone down to a bottomless abyss, letting them drown on their own.
suddenly, he furrowed his brows as if he had a nightmare. Then, his brows were knitted increasingly tight.
A faint layer of coldness covered his body.
Chu Liuyue was shocked. Very quickly, she saw a layer of frost forming on the ground!
Under the reflection of the moonlight, it shone with a sharp and bone-piercing gleam!
“Rong Xiu?” Chu Liuyue called out to him.
However, Rong Xiu just curled his body slightly.
That thin layer of blanket seemed rather insignificant on his body.
Chu Liuyue sat up. “Rong Xiu!”
Rong Xiu’s face was buried in the shadows and couldn’t be seen clearly.
Chu Liuyue pressed her lips against each other as she dissipated the barrier and walked over. “Rong Xiu, if you continue pretending, I’ll get angry.”
As Chu Liuyue talked, she finally could see Rong Xiu’s face clearly.
‘When she saw that his thick lashes were also covered in a layer of frost, she finally realized that something was wrong as she hurriedly lowered her body and touched his face.
It was cold to touch! It was so cold that Chu Liuyue’s entire body trembled.
Rong Xiu seemed to feel something as he clutched her hand and hugged her!
His movements were crude and rough, completely different from his usual restraint and gentleness.
Chu Liuyue controlled her urge to gasp as she lowered her strength, followed him, and fell into his arms.
With a grasp of Rong Xiu’s metal-like arm and pressure from his legs, he easily trapped Chu Liuyue in his embrace.
Chu Liuyue felt stuffy. When she finally managed to raise her head after much struggle, she saw his brows relaxing.
Then, under her gaze, the frost on his lashes gradually melted away. His originally cold limbs started warming up gradually, and he recovered his original warmth.
Chu Liuyue didn’t see that the frost on the ground nearby had also started disappearing bit by bit.
Rong Xiu’s lashes moved.
Just when Chu Liuyue thought that he was about to awaken, Rong Xiu changed into a more comfortable position and hugged her. His aura then gradually became softer and deeper.
Chu Liuyue was dazed. He… fell asleep?!
Chu Liuyue couldn’t help but suspect that he did it on purpose from his series of actions. But when she saw that he was really in a deep slumber, she didn’t have the heart to wake him up.
It was probably… because he really didn’t sleep well during this period of time.
Chu Liuyue looked at him for a while before she raised her head slightly, inched over, and lightly pecked his lips. Then, she snuggled back into his arms and closed her eyes to sleep.
For some reason, she actually fell asleep really quickly.
After some time, when she completely fell asleep, the man in the dark gradually opened his eyes.
He looked at her with a deep gaze. Even though it wasted some strength… It was still very smart of me to get them to prepare a couple-sized blanket beforehand.
The next day, Chu Liuyue woke up on the bed.
Rong Xiu had already gone out.
She instinctively looked on the ground. Mm, it’s clean and tidy.
The blanket had been preciously kept by His Grace.
Chu Liuyue narrowed her eyes. I should really ask Rong Xiu if his body is indeed sickly.
But before she had the chance to ask, Dugu Mobao came over. “You’re awake? Since you’re awake, let’s play chess.”
Chu Liuyue’s head hurt. But when she thought of Rong Xiu, she clenched her teeth and rapidly cleaned herself up before inviting Dugu Mobao over. “Let’s begin!”
The next few days, Chu Liuyue spent each day in a similar fashion. Every day, she would play chess with Dugu Mobao before going to the arena and battling the puppet for four hours. Then, she would spend some time reflecting and improving her cultivation level. In the middle, she would conveniently
treat Lin Zhifei’s illness and refine some medicine.
Normally, she could only see Rong Xiu at night.
Chu Liuyue could feel that Rong Xiu was very busy. But as for what he was busy with, he didn’t speak, and Chu Liuyue didn’t willingly ask.
However, he regularly couldn’t sleep well at night. Chu Liuyue couldn’t bear to watch him in this manner, so she would end up sleeping with him on the floor every night.
Of course, the next morning, she would return to the bed.
The five days set by Dugu Mobao quickly passed.
‘The puppet that Chu Liuyue had to battle with actually became an intermediate stage-eight one! Now, she spent six hours here every day.
The results were very obvious after the high-intensity training.
Chu Liuyue’s physical strength was elevated quite a bit. Additionally, although she couldn’t rapidly break through in her warrior cultivation, Chu Liuyue still broke through to become a peak eighth-grade Xuan Master.
‘The ninth stage was right within her grasp!
