When Bai Luochu heard nothing after leaving her room, she had still thought that something happened to Pei Qingfeng, hence she worriedly asked, “Pei Qingfeng? Are you still there?”
When Pei Qingfeng heard Bai Luochu called out his name, he immediately jumped out from his chair. He had wanted to enter the inner room, but stopped himself when he remembered Bai Luochu telling him he could only enter with her permission. Hence, he replied from outside, “ I’m here, what’s wrong? Are you feeling unwell?”
When Bai Luochu heard his reply, she felt like a huge rock was lifted off her shoulders. Afterall, it was weird that Pei Qingfeng was so quiet and if it was really as she thought then there it would be extremely troublesome. At the end of the day Pei Qingfeng was still a prince of the Cloud Water Nation and if anything had happened to him, none of them would be able to avoid the old emperor’s wrath.
“It’s nothing, I thought you had left...” Bai Luochu then stood up and prepared to leave.
Pei Qingfeng stretched his head out and prepared to charge over the moment Bai Luochu showed signs of falling.
“Weren’t you the one who wanted some peace and quiet?”
Bai Luochu felt her face growing hot when she heard him as she had indeed told him that she wanted some peace and quiet before she started cultivating. She never thought that she would become worried that Pei Qingfeng would take his leave without telling her.
“Fine… I’m at fault here, sorry.” As it wasn’t convenient for her to move, Bai Luochu gave him a simple apology. Pei Qingfeng wasn’t someone who cared about formalities and he merely puckered his lips to accept her apology.
Making her way to the table before her, the smell of freshly ground ink assaulted her nose and question marks appeared in Bai Luochu’s head. I don’t remember writing anything down? An idea of what Pei Qingfeng had been doing surfaced in her mind and thoughts started forming in her head. “Your Second Highness, are you busy with something right now?”
Pei Qingfeng glanced at her and discovered that her nose was almost directly above his note. Not wanting her to worry, Pei Qingfeng blurted out the first excuse that came to mind.
“It’s nothing too important. I can make use of the time when you cultivate to settle my matters. Don’t worry too much about it. I can’t possibly annoy you all the time, right?”
Bai Luochu nodded her head and the doubts in her head disappeared. A sigh of relief escaped Pei Qingfeng’s lips and he made a mental note to tidy up the place before Bai Luochu ended her cultivation session. Moreover, he felt that he definitely had to hide his list from Pei Rumo in case his older brother decided to mess up his plans.
“What time is it?” Bai Luochu asked.
“It’s going to be evening soon, are you starting to get hungry? I didn’t bring you lunch as I didn’t want to interrupt you. If you are hungry, I’ll get the innkeeper to send some food over.”
Bai Luochu shook her head, “I’m not hungry. Time seems to fly when I’m cultivating. Even if you request for the innkeeper to bring some food over now, it will take some time. Let’s just wait for dinner time. There is no need to rush to eat.” Bai Luochu tapped her fingers on the table casually and dismissed the issue.
When Qin Feng arrived with dinner, he fell into a daze when he saw Pei Qingfeng in the room with Bai Luochu. After recalling Ying Lan’s introduction, the name ‘Pei Qingfeng’ appeared in his mind. He knew that this mysterious man in the room with his mistress had to be the Second Prince of the Cloud Water Nation and he meant no harm. After a brief scare, Qin Feng started to arrange the table with dishes he prepared personally. After taking out all the food, he added, “Please enjoy your meal.” He turned to look at Bai Luochu before leaving in case she had any other instructions for him.
“What are you staring at? You better watch where you’re looking at.” Pei Qingfeng warned. Even though he seemed rude, he couldn’t be blamed for that as the innkeeper’s disguise Qin Feng was wearing was too ugly. No matter how politely Qin Feng acted, he would be taken to be the bad guy. The more Pei Qingfeng looked at him, the more he felt like Qin Feng was a toad lusting after the beautiful Bai Luochu.
Even though Qin Feng felt wronged in his heart, he could only push all the blame to the ugly innkeeper. He apologized repeatedly, “Yes, yes, yes, I am at fault here., I shall take my leave immediately.”
After Qin Feng left the room, Pei Qingfeng glanced at the dishes on the table. “Luoluo, do you feel like eating anything special today?”
An expression of disinterest formed on Bai Luochu’s face. There were only so many ingredients and seasonings they could find in the Desolate Region. None of the dishes prepared would ever suit her taste. “Don’t worry about me. Just grab me some of everything.”
Pei Qingfeng shook his head helplessly as he knew that Bai Luochu was a picky eater. This little glutton loves flavorful food the most. How can the food in the Desolate Region live up to her expectations?
Whatever the case, Bai Luochu had to eat. Pei Qingfeng quickly picked out all the bones in the fish before placing some meat in Bai Luochu’s bowl. He removed the skin as well as he was afraid that the fishy smell would affect her appetite.
After dealing with the fish, Pei Qingfeng picked out other dishes for her. “Eat as much as you like. I separated the bone from the chicken in case you choke on it.”
Feeling slightly embarrassed that Pei Qingfeng was doing all the work, Bai Luochu didn’t pick up her chopsticks immediately. Instead, she decided to wait for him so that they could have their meal together.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
