Chapter 310: Undercurrent on the Lake

This was the exact reason he invited Bai Luochu for the boat ride. Pei Rumo already knew that Pei Qingfeng wouldn’t be able to pay attention to Bai Luochu for a period of time. As such, he wanted to take the opportunity to sow some discord between the two of them. Even if he wasn’t able to break the two of them up, he would be able to create some misunderstandings. Whatever the case, Pei Rumo was rather shocked when he saw another woman wrapping her arms around his second brother. He was even more surprised Bai Luochu would catch sight of them so quickly.

Pei Rumo thought in his mind, Pei Qingfeng, oh Pei Qingfeng. I didn’t do this on purpose. You’re the one suffering from misfortune.

At that moment, Pei Qingfeng didn’t know that Pei Rumo and Bai Luochu were on the boat beside him and he allowed Ling Xian’er to continue holding him.

“Xian’er, you need to act more maturely. You can’t behave like this. You’re a young lady now and if you wrap your arms around another man, Honored Tian Yun would probably chew you out!” Even though he was criticizing Ling Xian’er, he was unable to do anything to her.

Ling Xian’er tightened her arm around him and leaned closer towards Pei Qingfeng. “You said it yourself… If it was another man, Honored Tian Yun would definitely reprimand Xian’er. However, Big Brother Qingfeng isn’t just some random man at the side of the road. Furthermore, is there anyone out there worthy of my hug?”

Pei Qingfeng felt extremely helpless and was unable to pick out the faults in Ling Xian’er’s words. After all, she wouldn’t stick close to any other man apart from himself. Without a way to deal with the lass, he reached out and playfully pinched Ling Xian’er’s nose.

Ling Xian’er instantly felt the weight of a mountain pressing on her. It wasn’t spirit qi and instead, it was a burst of spiritual energy. When she wanted to look for the source, she realized that the pressure was coming from the private boat beside her. When Pei Qingfeng was still distracted, she looked out and muttered to herself, “Oh no…”

Isn’t that the young lady Big Brother Qingfeng went to see? If she saw that scene earlier, Big Brother Qingfeng is definitely going to be in for a hard time. Wait… If Big Brother Qingfeng rages, I won’t be spared.

Ling Xian’er shivered when she thought about it. Just as she was about to do something, the pressure vanished.

When Bai Luochu witnessed the intimate actions between Pei Qingfeng and Ling Xian’er, an unbearable feeling appeared in her heart. However, that wasn’t enough to sway her emotions. She finally lost control of her emotions when Pei Qingfeng reached out to pinch Ling Xian’er’s nose. The moment she lost control, all the spiritual energy assaulted Ling Xian’er.

In the next moment, Bai Luochu realized that she made a mistake and quickly withdrew the aura around her body.

When Pei Qingfeng saw the originally noisy Ling Xian’er go silent, he felt that something was off. “What is wrong with you? Did you just see a ghost?”

Ling Xian’er heard Pei Qingfeng’s question and felt indescribable pain in her heart. However, she didn’t think that she should notify him and felt that solving the problem as it came was the way to go. She immediately said to Pei Qingfeng, “Big Brother Qingfeng, it’s getting cold out here. Can we steer the boat to a less windy area?”

Pei QIngfeng noticed that Ling Xian’er’s forehead was filled with sweat and didn’t understand why she said that it was cold. However, he did as Ling Xian’er pleased.

‘If it is a blessing, it isn’t a calamity. If it is a calamity, it will be unavoidable.’ When Pei Qingfeng turned around, he looked at the duo standing on the boat opposite him.  

When Ling Xian’er saw that the two parties had met, she cursed in her heart. Life is full of unexpected surprises… Cold sweat started to pour down her back.

Pei Qingfeng was stunned when he saw Bai Luochu’s getup as this was the first time he had seen a lady-like Bai Luochu. When he thought about it, anger rose in his heart. She never dressed up when she met with him! Why did she pay so much attention to her appearance when meeting with Pei Rumo? Could it be that feelings were developed when he saved her from the Bestial Battle Arena?!

Pei Rumo could sense that something was wrong with Bai Luochu and felt that she was really unaware of the fact that she was treating his second brother differently from anyone else. The more he thought about it, the more pain filled his heart.

Right now, there is still a paper-thin screen between the two of them. One of them is confused and unaware of her own feelings. With Luo Chu’s personality, she would probably feel uneasy when she sees Pei Qingfeng acting so intimately with another woman. This is the best time for me to make a move.

Since they were staring right at each other, there was no reason to pretend like they hadn’t met. Just as Pei Qingfeng was feeling a headache on how he should call out to Bai Luochu to explain himself, Pei Rumo made a preemptive strike.

“Who would have thought that the private boat beside mine with the same specifications would belong to my Second Brother! What a surprise to see you here with another young lady! I always thought you were only acquainted with Divine Physician Bai.”

The moment the statement came out of Pei Rumo’s mouth, Pei Qingfeng cursed in his heart. He thought that Pei Rumo had a cursed mouth. The excuse Pei Qingfeng just came up with turned useless with a single statement. He had no choice but to play to Pei Rumo’s tune, “Isn’t that right? It’s a rare sight for me to see you here. Originally, Fifth Brother was the one to pester us to order the boats and this is the first time I took it out for a spin. I heard First Brother loved to invite beautiful entertainers and dancers to entertain fellow officials.”

Pei Rumo’s expression froze. It was true that he did something like that once but Bai Luochu didn’t know about it. If she learned of it, no one knew how the impression of Pei Rumo in her mind would change.

Pei Rumo sneakily turned to look at Bai Luochu and when he noticed that her expression didn’t change, he breathed out a sigh of relief. “I have prepared refreshments and fine liquor in my private boat. Why don’t Second Brother come over and enjoy the evening along with us?”

The casual invitation caused a bulb to light up in Ling Xian’er’s head. She quickly started to beg Pei Qingfeng, “Big Brother Qingfeng, why don’t we go over?”
