Bai Luochu nodded slowly. Pei Rumo was right, for a person like Pei Qingfeng, it wouldn’t be surprising if he had several mysterious friends or identities.
Bai Luochu didn’t have anything else to ask and the atmosphere became stale. Pei Rumo was a person who didn’t know how to liven up the atmosphere and he allowed it to stagnate.
In the end, the two of them didn’t feel like sitting there anymore and Pei Rumo quickly spoke up, “Why don’t we leave? I still have a stack of imperial notices to handle. If I return any later, I might not be able to finish them.”
Bai Luochu was no longer in the mood to mess around after Pei Qingfeng had left. Since she was alone with Pei Rumo, she didn’t know what to say. After listening to Pei Rumo’s suggestion, she immediately agreed.
Pei Rumo was willing to spontaneously end this awkward meeting because he had sensed that Bai Luochu was finding it difficult to sit still. He also felt a little awkward and he understood that Bai Luochu wasn’t saying a word in order to not embarrass him. Furthermore, if the host suggested that they leave, she would be placed in an awkward position.
From the looks of it, Bai Luochu is indeed much better than Pei Qingfeng.
Pei Rumo shook his head and quickly dismissed the thoughts in his mind. Why did I think of her? It seems like I’m really obsessed.
Bai Luochu made the first move and prepared to settle the bill, but she was informed by the shopkeeper that someone had already paid the bill.
“Young Lady, the Young Master who left in a hurry paid the bill.”
Bai Luochu was rather surprised. She didn’t expect for Pei Qingfeng to remember to pay the bill even though he was in a rush. Whatever… Bai Luochu was someone who never loved taking advantage of others. She silently noted down his action and prepared to return the favor.
Pei Rumo felt even more uncomfortable as he didn’t expect for Pei Qingfeng to pay for the meal. It really made him look bad in front of Bai Luochu.
Right at this moment, Pei Qingfeng had already rushed back to his residence. He called out to his personal guard and asked, “Did our scouts send back any information?”
The personal guard saw that his master was anxious and was afraid that something had happened. “Master, this subordinate didn’t receive any information from our secret guards... What happened to you? Did someone mess with Young Lady Luo Chu?”
Pei Qingfeng shook his head before letting out a long sigh. “Sigh, I was having a meal with Luoluo and guess who I saw?”
The personal guard noticed that his master was intentionally building suspense. He shook his head.
When Pei Qingfeng saw that his personal guard couldn’t tell, he no longer dragged it on. “Earlier on, I saw a person from that side walking around in the capital city. I thought about investigating him but when I rushed out, he was gone. In my opinion, apart from those people who will possess such capabilities, no one else in the capital city is strong enough to run away from me.”
As Pei Qingfeng spoke, he saw his personal guard’s face turning increasingly grave.
That personal guard immediately knelt down with a ‘plop’ and begged for forgiveness, “Will Master please mete out the punishment. This subordinate has failed to detect their arrival in the capital city.”
Pei Qingfeng didn’t intend to blame his secret guard and he quickly gave out his order. “It is fine. Since they are already here, we need to be more careful. Of course, nothing will happen to me. We cannot be careless with protecting Luo Chu. If they find out about Luo Chu’s existence, they will definitely deal with her. Do you understand what you have to do?”
The personal guard naturally understood and immediately gave his word. “Master doesn’t have to worry. Previously, I have already informed the brothers to protect Young Lady Luo Chu at all costs. At the same time, I have passed down your instructions. If those people start to investigate Luo Chu, we will receive news immediately. This subordinate thinks that Young Lady Luo Chu is safe since no one is asking around about her.”
“That will be for the best.” Pei Qingfeng nodded and felt a little more at ease.
Outside the capital city, in the Ten Miles Gentleman Pavilion, there was a group of people who were taking a break. The majority of them had outstanding looks and no one dared to approach them. No one questioned the arrival of the group.
Among them, there were three young ladies whose faces were covered with veils. They looked like fairies who descended from the heavens. They looked extremely beautiful and there wasn’t a trace of obscenity around them.
One of the young ladies seemed as though she was frustrated by the wait and complained to a middle-aged man, “Honored Sir, how long do we have to wait? I wish to quickly see Brother Qingfeng!”
Only her eyes were revealed, but a brilliant light flashed in them. They were like round apricots with curly eyelashes, giving her a doll-like look. Those who laid eyes one her would feel the urge to protect her from harm.
The middle-aged man was obviously doting on the young girl. Even though he felt that her behavior wasn’t appropriate, he waved it off. “Xian’er, look at yourself! You are already a grown young lady, how can you still act like a kid? Look at your behavior now. If your Brother Qingfeng saw you like this, he will surely laugh at you.”
When the young lady heard the middle-aged man’s words, she behaved even more childishly.
“Aiyo, Honored Sir, it has been a long time since Xian’er met with Brother Qingfeng. Xian’er really misses him! Don’t you also miss Brother Qingfeng?” The young lady used a lovable expression to look at the middle-aged man.
That middle-aged man was helpless and could only laugh and rub her head. He sighed, “You’re a little shrewd fairy.”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
