After hearing that in Mi mama’s eyes flashed a hint of appreciation. She immediately choses some good quality food and let Shui er and Bing er send them over to Fu Liu yuan.
Mu Chun carefully helped Yun Qian Meng change her clothes which are drenched in cold sweat. Then she put a small red wooden table on the bed. She took the dinner that the maids sent over and put it on the table. Then she helped Yun Qian Meng eat. It’s just that the foot of Yun Qian Meng is hurting. It’s like a blazing feeling, making her not have appetite. She simply eat some vegetables and a half bowl of pearl white fungus porridge before pushing the bowl away. Mu Chun cleverly cleaned the small table and at the same time she gave Yun Qian Meng water to wash her mouth.
After all of this, Mi mama also returned from Fu Liu yuan. Mu Chun went away with the two maids of second rank.
“Miss is really intelligent. That Hua yiniang is not a rich family’s daughter. After seeing those ingredients, she wanted to immediately come to Qi Luo yuan to kowtow at Miss. Nubi said that you’re injured, then did she give up.”
Mi mama went into the chamber. She was afraid that Yun Qian Meng is anxiously waiting. She hurried to the bed and said what happened at Fu Liu yuan.
After Yun Qian Meng heard that, a smile formed on her mouth.
Chu wangfu and Rong fu has sent gifts at the same time. Not to mention that everyone within xiangfu knows, she fear that all the nobles’ families must also know now. Even the empress dowager in the secluded palace must have heard. And at this time, she gave the gifts of the two fu to Fu Liu yuan, with Hua yiniang’s status she will naturally be grateful. After all, no matter how generous Liu Han Yu is, seeing a yiniang that she herself has put in that position get pregnant, she must not be really that happy. Her good attitude towards Hua yiniang is only on the surface. Beside Yun Qian Meng never has much interactions with Hua yiniang. Moreover, regardless of if she gives birth to a boy or a girl, it won’t have much impact on her. With such a relationship without conflicts in interest, Hua yiniang is naturally happy to be close to her.
Moreover, after today it seems that her value rose. Even Yun Xuan Zhi will need to show some consideration to her. Hua yiniang is only half a master of xiangfu, naturally she will curry favor with her (YQM). This is just human nature. So it cannot be said that Hua yiniang is only looking for the ones in power.
It’s just that from Mi mama’s story, it appears that Hua yiniang’s mind is somewhat vain. Otherwise, with Yun Xuan Zhi sending many treasures to her recently, how would Hua yiniang like the small ingredients that she send? It seems that Hua yiniang is also not someone who will let people be at ease. Plus she is pregnant now. She must have formed a thought to climb up. Of course, it best if she has such thoughts. Only then can she be used by Yun Qian Meng.
“Mama, did you say that the things from these two fus are priceless, that they represent our xiangfu’s face and even if it’s like that, I send her some?”
Her body is somewhat lazy. The tone of while speaking also became a bit slow. It’s just that the light in her eyes didn’t fade for half a minute.
Mi mama immediately understood Yun Qian Meng’s intentions. She smiled and laughed lightly: “Miss don’t worry, this old nu has said those words to Hua yiniang. As for others things I didn’t mention them even the slightest. Let Hua yiniang ponder about the other things herself. If she wants that piece in her stomach to have a good birth, she naturally will knows what to do.”
And they just send something to her, but didn’t do anything. Even if in the future xiangye got angry, it will have nothing to do with Qi Luo yuan.
After hearing that, Yun Qian Meng nodded her head slightly. At this time, Mu Chun came in carrying a bowl. A thick herbal smell filled the inner chamber, making Yun Qian Meng frown. She only felt that since she came here, drinking medicine has become like eating meals (common).
“Miss, time to drink medicine. Drink while it’s hot lest to not destroy the potency while drinking it cold.”
When Mu Chun saw Yun Qian Meng frown, a smile formed on her mouth. But she won’t let Yun Qian Meng escape. She moved the bowl in front of Yun Qian Meng.
That bowl is put under Yun Qian Meng’s nose. An intense smell of medicine burst into her nose. Mu Chun and Mi mama are both staring at her. Yun Qian Meng knows that she can’t escape. She can only raise her hand and took the bowl of medicine. With frowned eyebrows, she drank the medicine in one gulp.
Mi mama immediately gave Yun Qian Meng a cup of water to cleanse her mouth. Then she carefully put another bowl for Yun Qian Meng to spit the water.
“Miss, here is some candy bar.”
After that Mu Chun held a plate of candied fruit for Yun Qian Meng to get rid of the bitter taste in her mouth.
Yun Qian Meng shook her head and replied: “It’s already night. Eating too much sweets will decay the teeth. I drank the medicine and will rest now. You can retreat.”
The two saw that Yun Qian Meng’s spirit became a little drowsy because of the medicine, they served her to lie down and then went out.
The effect of the medicine came quickly. Yun Qian Meng thought that it will take a while before she fell asleep. But with only the time to make tea, she fell into the land of dreams…….
It’s just that when she slept till three in the morning, she felt a pair of eyes staring at her. The long time working at the police made her acquire sharp reactions. Although her body is still somewhat drowsy, but she decisively opened her eyes.
In the dark a pair of bright eyes are staring at her, making Yun Qian Meng’s heart suddenly jump. She was about to shout when she recalled that this is her private chamber. She abruptly smothered her frightened heart. She put her arms beside her upper body. With calm eyes, she looked at the figure standing at her bedside.
In the dark, she saw that the person is quite tall. At this time, that person hid his aura. If it wasn’t because she was too sensitive, she fear that she will be unable to detect that someone has entered her chamber and standing at her bedside staring at her.
In order not to disturb the maids outside, Yun Qian Meng kept her body still. But those pair of hands at the side of her body is already ready. If that person dare to do something bad, then don’t blame her for being ruthless.
But at this time, from her bedside came a barely audible chuckle. It seemed like it’s laughing at Yun Qian Meng’s struggle.
While Yun Qian Meng is getting angry, that person actually sat on her bed. A masculinity belonging to man immediately went to Yun Qian Meng’s face, making Yun Qian Meng subconsciously in order to protect herself kick out her injured right foot.
That person seemed to have already guessed Yun Qian Meng’s action. A big hand raised in the dark and caught the right foot that was about to kick him. He firmly held Yun Qian Meng’s right foot so she can’t escape but also not hurting her.
Yun Qian Meng saw that the person saw through her and that person tightly caught her foot. In the dark, her eyes flashed anger. Instantly, she leaned and kicked with her left foot at that person.
It’s just that that person is really amazing. Once again, he saw through Yun Qian Meng. The other hand went in the air and stopped the left foot. Then he forced Yun Qian Meng’s left foot into the quilt. Both hands continue to hold onto the injured foot. They touched the swollen ankle. The right thumb tentatively pinched the injured place.
The sudden pain made Yun Qian Meng uttered a sound of pain. She widened her eyes and glared at that person. But in exchange, she got that person’s light chuckle.
“Fortunately, it didn’t injure the bone.”
That person lowered his voice and slowly opened his mouth. That casual tone, made Yun Qian Meng’s heart tighten.
In whole Xi Chu, beside from Chu Fei Yang, who else will use such a tone to speak with another?
Yun Qian Meng’s eyes couldn’t help but narrow slightly. With the help of the pale moonlight coming through the window, she saw that person clearly and confirmed her guess.
“Miss, what’s the matter with you?”
At this time, from the outside, Bai Mei’s voice came. After a while, a candle was lit outside. Bai Mei knocked on the door and asked respectfully: “Miss, do you need nubi to serve you?”
Yun Qian Meng saw her own feet that was being held by a man and immediately said coldly: “Nothing, you can go rest.”
Bai Mei softly replied and then left the door. After a moment, the candle which was lit is blown out. Yun Qian Meng gave a sigh of relief.
At this time, a soft laughter of a man can be heard. Then Yun Qian Meng felt her sock being pulled off. A warm hand held her right foot while the other hand touched her bare feet and massaged it.
For a full hour, that man gave Yun Qian Meng a massage with the same speed and force. The two didn’t speak any longer until the sock is put on the foot again. Yun Qian Meng was about to open her mouth, but a surge of hot air came at her. In an instant that man changed his position. He now sat down in front of her almost touching her cheek.
Until this moment did Yun Qian Meng saw that person’s face clearly. If that’s not Chu Fei Yang, who else can he be?
That pair of eyes are as deep as a secluded lake and exudes a little light. From that pair of eyes, Yun Qian Meng can see laughter. Don’t need to bother to guess. At a glance she can know that Chu Fei Yang’s mood is very good, given that those thin lips are slightly raised.
It’s just that Chu Fei Yang’s mood is very good, Yun Qian Meng’s mood is very bad. For no reason a strange man touched her skin, how can her mood be good?
Seeing Chu Fei Yang being so close, Yun Qian Meng felt that she lacked air. She moved slightly to the back. She whispered sarcastically: “Chu xiang is really idle. At midnight, learning the ways of a thief. So daring, are you not afraid that it’ll damage your official position?”
Yun Qian Meng’s words just landed when she felt her cheek became hot. Chu Fei Yang didn’t allow her to move away. He chased and touched her cheek. Lips near her ears, he chuckled: “It’s not only these. For Miss Yun’s reputation, benxiang can only lean closer to speak with Miss to avoid being seen by others and ruin your reputation.”
She has never been so close to another person. And she didn’t know if Chu Fei Yang did it intentionally or unintentionally, the hot air while he is speaking sprayed onto Yun Qian Meng’s neck, making Yun Qian Meng blush. Fortunately, it was dark, otherwise her whole reputation will be ruined at the hands of Chu Fei Yang.
But the initiator isn’t the slightest apologetic. He was so arrogant to even laugh, making Yun Qian Meng really angry. She immediately gritted her teeth and refuted: “Then does chennu needs to thank xiangye for being thoughtful? It’s just that xiangye climbed over a wall in the midnight to enter chennu’s chamber, how can this be an act of a gentleman? Even if chennu is an ordinary woman, this act will still be despised.”
After that, Yun Qian Meng raised her eyes at looked at Chu Fei Yang with resentful eyes, waiting for how he will explain himself.
Chu Fei Yang only smiled without a word. Suddenly, he raised his right arms and put it at Yun Qian Meng’s back. He trapped Yun Qian Meng in his arms. Then he raised his upper body and made Yun Qian Meng have no way to run. He smelled the faint scent of medicine on Yun Qian Meng, He actually fell the rich smell of incense is more comfortable. He whispered: “Benxiang heard that Miss is injured and came to visit. Who will know that Miss is already asleep? At last resort I can only enter through the window. Just now I personally massaged Miss, it can be considered a payment for being offensive to Miss. But I didn’t know that Miss will misunderstood benxiang like this. It really make people’s hearts get cold.”
Saying that his heart got cold, but Yun Qian Meng saw clearly that Chu Fei Yang’s lips are raised. The she who has always been smart felt that this move of Chu Fei Yang is entirely intentional. Although she is angry, but she didn’t want to expose her real feeling in front of the other. She only shot cold glares at Chu Fei Yang and said: “Earlier Chu wang already sent gifts. Chu xiang doing this, isn’t it superfluous?”
After hearing that, Chu Fei Yang just shrugged. Then he said: “That’s Chu wang’s mind. What does it have to do with me, Chu xiang?”
Listening to him being so difficult to handle, Yun Qian Meng sneered: “Chu wang is Chu xiang’s zufu1. That’s an indisputable fact. How can xiangye disassociate yourself with Chu wang? Can it be that xiangye is planning on being a heartless person who doesn’t even recognize his own family?”
Yun Qian Meng’s eyes turned to those of contempt. She’d like to see how Chu Fei Yang will explain this time.
It’s just that Chi Fei Yang isn’t like Yun Xuan Zhi, who care really much about his reputation. He is used to being free and easy, how can a few words make him angry?
But Yun Qian Meng’s eloquent and sharp words, made him raise an eyebrow. The smile in his eyes disappeared and changed for a pair of calm eyes that stared at Yun Qian Meng with all seriousness. Then he laughed in a low voice and said: “The bones are not injured, so gauze are not needed lest the blood won’t flow easily and the wound won’t be cured.”
After that, he raised from Yun Qian Meng’s body and stood up. Taking advantage of the moonlight, he silently left the chamber.
Happy new year. Wishing you all a happy, healthy an prosperous year.For those interested in the early chapters of CWF, there’s a new translator ^^!
