Pei Qingfeng rolled his eyes at Ling Xian'er and a feeling of disappointment filled his mind. Doesn't she know that I am in a hostile relationship with the person on the other side? How can she be attracted by Pei Rumo’s refreshments? Nonsense!
However, Ling Xian’er had thoughts of her own. After I go over, I will behave myself and maintain a distance from Pei Qingfeng. He will be in a better position to explain himself to Luo Chu. If I don’t do that, I won’t be able to clear my name even if I jumped into the Yellow River.
Pei Qingfeng stared into Bai Luochu’s cold eyes and he turned to look at the delighted Pei Rumo beside her. Rage surged through his heart and he yelled at Ling Xian’er, "He is just being polite! Why would he invite us over there?!"
Pei Qingfeng was yelling as he was clear about Pei Rumo’s character. Pei Rumo was someone who wouldn’t allow his reputation to be ruined and after listening to what Pei Qingfeng said, he had no choice but to invite them over. This way. Pei Qingfeng would be able to stop the ‘date’ between the two of them.
Pei Qingfeng made such amazing plans but never expected it to be spoiled by Bai Luochu instead of the cunning Pei Rumo..
When Bai Luochu saw the two of them acting intimately, a fire already started blazing in her heart. When she saw how Pei Qingfeng wouldn’t even greet her, she became even unhappier. She snapped at Pei Qingfeng "It is good that Your Second Highness understands. His First Highness is just being polite and the refreshments prepared are my favorite osmanthus cake and snacks. The liquor is the plum blossom brew and I’m afraid you won’t be able to enjoy them even if you come over.”
Every single word from Bai Luochu stabbed into Pei Qingfeng’s heart.
Pei Qingfeng never expected that Bai Luochu would be so impolite when speaking to him and he was struck speechless.
On the other hand, Pei Rumo was rejoicing. Even though he knew that Bai Luochu was merely acting out of jealousy, this was the outcome he wanted as Pei Qingfeng wouldn’t be able to board his boat.
The person who was completely lost was Ling Xian’er. As the person who caused Pei Qingfeng and Bai Luochu’s relationship to turn sour, she felt that Pei Qingfeng was definitely going to beat her up when he got the chance.
Bai Luochu was waiting for Pei Qingfeng to behave shamelessly and invite himself on board like he usually did. However, even after a long time, Pei Qingfeng remained silent and Bai Luochu became tired of waiting.
The air between the two private boats seemed to be still and even the surroundings fell silent. The pitch black sky hung above them and made the scene look extremely oppressive. It was as though the air had turned into liquid and it suffocated the four individuals who were facing each other.
Bai Luochu slowly closed her eyes and no one could guess her thoughts.
Pei Qingfeng finally broke the silence after some time. "Divine Physician Bai, is that really what you think?" Pei Qingfeng felt that his voice was getting plundered by the darkness and it became hoarse and unpleasant.
Bai Luochu's finger trembled slightly and even her lashes started to tremble. After a long moment, she gripped her fist tightly and replied, "Yes! That is what I think!"
"Good, good, good." A bleak reply left Pei Qingfeng’s lips.
It was too late for regrets as Bai Luochu instantly regretted her words. However, when she thought about how Pei Qingfeng was interacting intimately with Ling Xian’er, she no longer bothered about his feelings.
"Since that is the case, it is better for us to stay on our respective boats. A useless person like me shouldn’t disturb the date between my First Brother and Divine Physician Bai." Pei Qingfeng was obviously infuriated and his words were no longer kind.
Bai Luochu stared at Pei Qingfeng with a look of disbelief. What in the world is going on?! Is that what he really thinks? Bai Luochu felt that she was a retard for listening to him two days ago.
A person would say the meanest things when they were angry. Right now, several statements caused both their hearts to sink into the bottom of the lake. A bone-chilling wind suddenly swept through the area.
Ling Xian'er realized that the situation was going south and she quickly laughed wryly in an attempt to diffuse the situation. "Hahahahaha… I should be blamed for this. I’m such a klutz and I hope Your First Highness and Divine Physician Bai wouldn’t hate me for it.”
Ling Xian'er was nearly going insane from the tense atmosphere. If there was really something going on between Pei Qingfeng and herself, she might be able to explain herself. However, it was impossible for her to be with Pei Qingfeng but she still had to stand in the crossfire of the two parties. She suddenly felt that her life was extremely bitter.
Pei Rumo might be an onlooker but he couldn’t allow the situation to deteriorate any further. After all, if Bai Luochu flew into a rage, it wouldn’t be easy for him to do anything about it. He quickly diffused the situation, "Nonsense! We will never direct our rage at you. However, Divine Physician Bai is in a bad mood right now and her words can be rather spiteful. Please forgive us.”
Pei Qingfeng frowned when he heard Pei Rumo’s response as he felt that his first brother was trying to close the gap between Bai Luochu and himself. Pei Qingfeng felt extremely disgusted and he quickly retorted, "Is Your First Highness the parasite in Divine Physician Bai's stomach? How can you know what Luoluo is thinking?"
Pei Rumo froze after hearing Pei Qingfeng's argument and Ling Xian’er had a feeling that nothing was going to end well for any of them. She remained silent but no one expected that Bai Luochu would be determined to go against Pei Qingfeng no matter how hard he tried, "His First Highness is right. I am not in a good mood today and offended Your Second Highness. I hope to be forgiven.”Previous Chapter Next Chapter
