Chapter 1401: His Grace Said that it was Hard on Him
She sat up and looked in the direction of the sound.
The door was pushed open to reveal a gap as a furry head stuck in.
It suddenly stopped in its movements and looked at the teacup that suddenly dropped in front of it helplessly. It clearly didn’t expect that such a ‘small’ movement would cause such a huge commotion. Who would actually put a teacup on an unlatched door?! Pfft! That person is outrageous!
As if detecting her gaze, it slowly turned its stiff neck and looked over.
The human and the fiend stared at each other.
A pair of ice-blue eyes widened slightly with hints of nervousness in them. Then, the fiend blinked. S-she’s awake?!
Looking at Xue Xue’s dazed appearance, Chu Liuyue couldn’t help but laugh and wave toward it. “Xue Xue, why are you in a daze? Come here.”
“Ow!” Xue Xue roared excitedly and hurriedly flew toward Chu Liuyue! It jumped with its muscular body and directly went for Chu Liuyue’s arms from the door!
It was just about to be hugged!
“Hm?” A clear and low voice came from the door.
Xue Xue instantly became alert and stepped on the brakes! It stopped just half an inch before Chu Liuyue!
Its large forehead almost hit Chu Liuyue’s face.
The scene seemed to be frozen.
Looking at the wet nose before her eyes and the pair of panicked and guilty ice-blue eyes, the corner of Chu Liuyue’s lips twitched.
A well-defined hand appeared on the door and slowly pushed it open. Rong Xiu then walked in.
It seemed to be evening now as the remaining glow of the setting sun shone on him. He glowed with a faint gold, causing his entire person to look like he had just walked out of a holy paper.
His deep and clear phoenix-like eyes looked straight at Chu Liuyue as his thin lips curled up slightly. “Yue’er, you’re awake?”
Hearing the noise, he had already guessed it as he immediately came in.
Chu Liuyue gazed at his face.
The light from behind shone on his face, which was as clear as jade, but it also seemed like there was a veil she couldn’t see through above it.
“Rong Xiu.” She tilted her head. “I seemed to have… dreamed of you.”
Rong Xiu’s gaze flickered as he walked over. His steps were calm, and he exuded a cold elegance. “Did you?”
Standing beside the bed, the side of his eyes slightly swept past Xue Xue at the side.
Xue Xue shuddered and sensibly turned to walk away before it escaped.
Chu Liuyue was speechless.
“What did you dream of?” Rong Xiu sat down by the bed, held her hands, and asked lightly.
Chu Liuyue gazed into his eyes with much focus as if she wanted to see something through them. Then, she smiled. “I dreamed that… you brought me to see the peach blossoms that bloomed in winter.”
Rong Xiu’s expression didn’t change. Only the depths of his eyes seemed to have a ripple that quickly flashed across. “Was it nice?”
He held her face up with one hand, and the corner of his lips curled up slightly. A warm aura came from his palms with deep reminiscence and gentleness.
Chu Liuyue’s heart tingled as she suddenly felt heavy lethargy overwhelming her.
She held Rong Xiu’s hand and gently stuck her face on it.
Rong Xiu was dazed slightly.
The next moment, Chu Liuyue looked up at him. Perhaps it was because she had just woken up, or perhaps it was because she had a very long and complicated dream that made her tired, but her voice became lazy. She dragged on her last syllable in a soft and whiny manner. “Rong Xiu…”
She spoke softly, but it seemed to be an elongated string that gently and lightly encircled his heart.
Rong Xiu’s heart instantly became a soft mess. He leaned in closer, hugged her, and kissed her brows.
“It’s nice when I see it with you,” said Chu Liuyue.
The volume wasn’t loud, but he heard it clearly. This caused him to smile, and even his eyes and brows had hints of happiness. “Really?”
Chu Liuyue leaned on his shoulders and nodded lightly. “But I don’t know why I always can’t see your face clearly in the dreams.”
Rong Xiu paused and pinched her soft earlobes. “I’m right here. You can see me however much you want.”
Chu Liuyue leaned in his arms for a while. Only after she felt that she had recovered most of her physical strength and mental energy did she support her body.
She stared at him, and her eyes were like stars. Suddenly, she moved forward and quickly landed a kiss on his lips. “You’re right!”
He is mine, and he is right here. What is there to be conflicted about?
Rong Xiu’s eyes darkened instantly.
But when he wanted to continue, Chu Liuyue suddenly asked, “Rong Xiu, can you do me a favor?”
Rong Xiu paused in his actions. “What favor?”
“I want…” Hesitation appeared on Chu Liuyue’s face. “I want… to go to Fengmin Mountain.”
Rong Xiu raised his sharp brows slightly. “Reason?”
“There is no reason,” Chu Liuyue replied as she moved half a step back, planning on getting up after removing the blankets.
Halfway through removing the blankets, she suddenly stopped in her movements. Then, she slowly raised her head and stared at Rong Xiu with a dazed expression. “How long… have I slept for?”
She vaguely knew that she was carried back to Jiuheng Peak by Rong Xiu from the Flood-Desert Northern Region, but she couldn’t remember how long it had been since then.
Rong Xiu was calm. “Seven days.”
The corner of Chu Liuyue’s eyes twitched crazily. She swallowed a mouthful of saliva with much difficulty and asked clearly, “Then… these seven days… clothes…”
“I helped you change your clothes, and I fed you the pills and water.” As if knowing what she wanted to ask, Rong Xiu answered smoothly.
He suddenly went in close, and his two palms went to Chu Liuyue’s sides.
Chu Liuyue instinctively moved backward and only stopped when her back hit the head of the bed.
Rong Xiu silently approached her, and the duo’s distance rapidly shrunk. Finally, they were breathing the same air.
There seemed to be millions of rays of light swimming inside his eyes, causing one to be charmed. In this world, it would be hard for any woman to escape when such eyes were deeply gazing at her.
“T-then…” Chu Liuyue’s face suddenly burned, and her entire body heated up. “The blood on my body…”
“We naturally have to clean those messy bloodstains as soon as possible. If not, the wound will be infected, and it will even rot, right?”
Rong Xiu continued, “In the academy, there’s nobody else who can do this to do it personally. There’s only me…. You wouldn’t want your identity to be exposed, right?”
He leaned in very closely. When he spoke, the warm air blew to her thin neck and ears.
It seemed like comets were burning.
At that time, Chu Liuyue didn’t really hear his words clearly. She felt that something lightly scratched her heart, causing her to be rather distracted.
“Yue’er, don’t worry. To allow your wound to heal as soon as possible, every single day for the past few days, I had—”
Chu Liuyue finally couldn’t continue listening, and she grabbed the clothes in front of his chest, dragged the person over, and kissed him.
There seemed to be fires burning in her eyes in a passionate and intense manner.
Let’s see if you want to talk!
Rong Xiu suddenly sighed softly, and his syllables were unclear. “Yue’er, actually… It has been very hard on me too…”
