This was the first time Ling Xian’er saw such a ferocious expression on Pei Qingfeng’s face. She no longer dared to say anything else and she quickly nodded. However, she felt she was rather insincere and said quickly added something, "Of course it is true. Big Brother Qingfeng, according to the many folk stories I have read, I’m acting like the bad woman who wishes to ruin the relationship between the male and female protagonist. However, I ended up helping them to advance their relationship. I’m actually the hero in the story!”
This was the first time Pei Qingfeng felt that the folk stories read by Ling Xian’er should be distributed around the world. It was also the first time Pei Qingfeng felt that it wasn’t wrong for Ling Xian’er to read such things. After all, she was able to be of assistance in times of need.
"Men, bring me the brush and ink." Pei Qingfeng spoke and summoned his servant. The moment the personal guard heard Pei Qingfeng’s order, he burst into the room.
"Does Master need this servant to do anything?"
"I want to deliver a letter of visitation to the general’s residence tomorrow." Pei Qingfeng started looking for an empty card after he was done speaking.
The personal guard immediately stepped forward and started to grind the ink for Pei Qingfeng.
Ling Xian'er took the initiative to chide the personal guard, "You are just a boor who only knows how to brandish swords around to kill people. How are you going to prepare the ink for Big Brother Qingfeng? Wait at the side. I shall grind the ink…”
The personal guard wasn't content with Ling Xian'er's attitude towards him, but when he saw how spirited and energetic his master was, he didn’t dare to poke the hornet’s nest.
Before long, a letter of invitation was crafted and Pei Qingfeng placed his brush down. He passed the card over to the servant before reminding him to deliver the card as soon early the next morning.
Ling Xian'er felt that it was time and she said, "That... Xian’er hopes Big Brother Qingfeng can promise me one thing."
Pei Qingfeng looked up and saw Ling Xian'er's mischievous expression. He immediately knew that she was up to no good but he wasn’t in a hurry to refuse her request. He nodded and perked up his ears.
Ling Xian'er thought that Pei Qingfeng would definitely agree and she went straight to the point. "As you can see, I am the cause of this misunderstanding. If Big Brother Qingfeng goes alone, you won’t be able to convince her. Big Brother Qingfeng, why don’t you bring me along? It will be easier to explain yourself.”
Pei Qingfeng didn’t bother coming up with an excuse and he shot her down, "You should stop right here. If you come along, we probably won’t be able to enter the residence. I’m pretty sure you only want to see what Luo Chu looks like. Stop with your schemes… I know what you are capable of.”
Ling Xian'er's petite face drooped when she heard the rejection. However, she was unresigned and she continued to pester Pei Qingfeng. Only after some time did she realize that he was serious about denying her the request. Without any other choice, Ling Xian’er returned to the residence.
After Ling Xian'er left, the entire study room became quiet. Pei Qingfeng was left alone and he couldn’t believe what he just did. Due to a baseless guess from Ling Xian’er, he sent a letter of visitation to Bai Luochu… He felt that he was acting too hastily.
Whatever the case, he couldn’t pin the blame entirely on Ling Xian’er. He couldn’t deny that he really wanted to see her.
Pei Qingfeng settled his unsteady heart and he became excited at the thought of meeting Bai Luochu the next day.
"His Second Highness’ personal guard is here to deliver a letter of visitation?" Bai Luochu was extremely puzzled.
Cai Ling nodded and spoke indignantly, "That's right! How dare he continue to pester you! Isn’t he enjoying his time messing about with some mysterious lady?”
Bai Luochu quickly stopped Cai Ling, "Cai Ling, don't be nosy. No matter what, Pei Qingfeng is an imperial prince and he isn't someone you should gossip about."
Cai Ling instantly fell silent.
Bai Luochu seemed to have realized something and she quickly instructed Cai Ling, “Cai Ling, bring that person in. I want to see what schemes Pei Qingfeng has up his sleeves."
Cai Ling might not be willing but she still invited the personal guard into the residence.
"Young Lady Luo Chu, this is the letter of visit my Master ordered me to deliver. Please accept it." The personal guard seemed as though he was afraid Bai Luochu would decline the card and he pushed it towards her. He hated the fact that he couldn’t directly push it into her face.
Bai Luochu felt that the personal guard was rather hilarious and immediately made fun of him, "Hold on. I have to read it before I can decide if I am accepting the visit."
The personal guard’s forehead dripped with cold sweat. If Young Lady Luo Chu declines, won’t I need to kneel down to beg her to accept the card?
After reading the card, Bai Luochu fell into silence.
Looking at the quiet Bai Luochu, the personal guard’s heart started to pound erratically. Just as he was about to kneel down, Bai Luochu placed the card down and spoke to him, "Go back and inform your Master that he better not be late."
The personal guard felt like a high weight was lifted off his shoulders and he skipped away happily. It was as though he was afraid Bai Luochu might regret her decision as he left in a hurry.
Just as Cai Ling wanted to dissuade Bai Luochu, she noticed that her mistress was rubbing the card between her fingers. She was unable to decipher her mistress’ thoughts.
The card was really one of a kind. There was a simple statement written on it but it was altered plenty of times. Even the outside of the card was stained with ink. Why would she accept such a poorly written card?
Even though he changed the words several times, Pei Qingfeng was unable to convey his thoughts. In the end, he wrote down the timing and location in a single statement without saying anything else. “I will personally explain myself.”
Bai Luochu was curious as to what he wanted to say. Apart from that, Bai Luochu chose to ignore the other feeling in her heart.
There was a voice in the bottom of her heart which couldn’t be drowned out no matter how hard she tried. Meet him and listen to what he has to say.
As for who she was thinking of… it was kind of obvious.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
