Pei Qingfeng remained calm and glanced at his personal guard. As though he felt a blade pointed at him, the personal guard felt all his hair stand on its end.
In order to prevent his master from sending him to the netherworld then and there, the personal guard knew what he had to do, “Young Lady Luo Chu, don’t be in a hurry. My Master will explain everything to you.”
Bai Luochu felt that Pei Qingfeng was a husband who was caught cheating and was trying to explain to his wife his wrongdoings.
The moment the thought flashed across her mind, she shook her head to get it out of her mind. What the hell am I thinking about?! She was silently shocked that such an inappropriate thought entered her mind.
When Pei Qingfeng saw that his personal guard was helping him, he received a confidence boost and continued, “Luoluo, I know that whatever I say now won’t be able to convince you, but you need to know that I am forced to do it. The relationship between me and that young lady isn’t what you think it is. Please leave it alone and once I can be sure that you won’t be dragged into it, I will tell you everything.”
When the sunlight landed on Pei Qingfeng’s face, a golden radiance enveloped it. Pei Qingfeng, who already had the face of a prideful flower in the mountains, was given an additional divine glow by the sunlight. His pair of black eyes were like the darkness in the night and they portrayed the depth of his resolution. Apart from that, Bai Luochu could see her reflection in Pei Qingfeng’s eyes.
This was the first time Bai Luochu noticed her looks. Moreover, she saw reflection in Pei Qingfeng’s eyes. The Bai Luochu in Pei Qingfeng’s eyes wasn’t the same as the one she had thought herself to be. The Bai Luochu in Pei Qingfeng’s eyes was more womanly and exuded a tender and exquisite aura.
Could it be because of his eyes? Bai Luochu looked into Pei Qingfeng’s eyes again and she suddenly realized this was the first time she saw herself through his eyes. There was a feeling of hope that she would believe him, but there was something else… She wasn’t able to put a finger on it...
Pei Qingfeng’s eyes could only be described with four words... gentle, passion, love, and reluctance. Bai Luochu had seen those eyes before and they were Lu Wenshu’s. There was only one difference, she wasn’t able to see herself in Lu Wenshu’s eyes. Compared to Pei Qingfeng’s eyes which were filled with her, Lu Wenshu’s eyes seemed rather different.
Bai Luochu turned her gaze and knew that if she continued to look into his eyes, something would emerge in her heart. There was a string in her mind on the verge of snapping.
Bai Luochu fell into silence as a myriad of thoughts ran through her mind. The memories of Pei Qingfeng flashed through her mind… The times when he teased her, the scene of him jumping in front of Lu Wenshu’s attack to protect her, and even his deep black eyes appeared in her mind. Those eyes which looked at her with warmth filled her mind and it made it impossible for her to think of anything else.
No! I can’t keep thinking about it! Bai Luochu told herself. She closed her eyes and took a few deep breaths before agreeing, “Fine, I believe you. I shall wait for you to tell me everything. Is that good enough?”
After Bai Luochu spoke, she didn’t dare to raise her head to look at Pei Qingfeng. She was afraid, afraid that she wouldn’t be able to withhold her budding emotions. She was afraid that those thoughts would emerge and bloom into a giant flower. She was afraid that she would be unable to remove Pei Qingfeng from her mind.
Bai Luochu missed out on a beautiful scene because of her fear. A brilliant smile containing the warmth of a thousand suns bloomed on Pei Qingfeng’s face when he heard her agreement.
The smile had even dazzled Ling Xian’er.
Pei Qingfeng’s narrow and almond-shaped eyes rose up slightly and the indistinct little mole below his eyes glistened like a gemstone under the illumination of the soft sunlight. His sharp brows, jade-sculpted nose, and lips that formed a rigid look on his face slowly thawed. In addition to his emotional and sentimental eyes, he looked like an absolutely stunning deity who shouldn’t exist in the mortal realm.
“Resplendent like an immortal...” Ling Xian’er couldn’t help but let out a sigh when she saw how Pei Qingfeng was smiling, “Oh my... With my Big Brother Qingfeng’s face, is there even a need for him to read the folk stories to learn how to move a young lady? A simple smile would suffice... Tsk Tsk, no wonder he doesn’t think my folk stories are worthy of attention. It seems like he has some skill.” Ling Xian’er knew that she was an exceptional beauty but never expected her Big Brother Qingfeng to look so attractive.
Right now, Ling Xian’er was even more curious about Bai Luochu. She wanted to know the person who managed to move her Big Brother Qingfeng. She also wanted to know the person who managed to resist Pei Qingfeng’s remarkable looks.
The more she thought about it, the more she moved her body in order to catch sight of Bai Luochu’s face. However, as Bai Luochu had her back to Ling Xian’er, there was no way for her to do so. She was utterly helpless and muttered to herself, "Oh heavens, I am pleading with you, just a single glance is enough."
Perhaps the heavens really heard Ling Xian'er's prayers. Bai Luochu turned around in order to face her. Well, maybe it wasn’t because of the heavens… Ling Xian’er broke one of the branches due to her excessive movements.
Ling Xian'er used her hand to grab onto the branch and she didn’t allow herself to fall off the tree. However, Bai Luochu easily noticed something wrong.
"Who?!" Bai Luochu turned around abruptly and looked towards the source of the sound.
Ling Xian'er quickly concealed herself and didn’t forget to steal a glance at Bai Luochu.
"Oh my... She is actually an ice-beauty."
Ling Xian'er knew that the woman in front of her wasn’t inferior to her in terms of looks. They merely had completely different styles.
Ling Xian'er was like a gorgeous peony, like a dazzling diamond under the sunlight. This woman was like a lotus flower growing in a thousand year old lake of ice, like a precious jade one would appreciate under the brightest moonlight.
Since Bai Luochu escaped from the Bestial Battle Arena, she had been nourishing herself for quite some time. There was no doubt she had grown into a fine young lady.
She had umber-black eyebrows which arched slightly upwards. Her nose was perfectly proportional to her face and it added a beautiful touch to her flawless features. Even with her lips glowing in the softest hue of vermillion, it didn’t diminish her heroic look. A pair of peach blossom eyes finished her look and even with the indifferent look on Bai Luochu’s face, it was an undeniable fact that she was an unrivalled beauty.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
