Her actions meant something else in Pei Qingfeng’s eyes. When he noticed that she hadn’t started to eat, he said, ”Luoluo, do you need somebody to feed you? I’ll hurry up then…” His hands sped up after the words left his mouth.
Bai Luochu’s face flushed red. She didn’t know whether to laugh or cry as she complained, “I’m not a kid… Why do I need people to feed me? I won’t shove the food in my nose and I won’t make a mess… I’m merely waiting for you to finish so that we can eat together! I just feel like being polite. Looking at you now, people might even think that I’m bullying you.”
When he heard that she wanted to wait for him so that they could eat together, his hands moved even faster. “Luoluo, wait for a moment. I’ll be done soon.”
Bai Luochu sat there calmly and when Pei Qingfeng was finally done, her bowl was filled to the brim. WIth no other choice, he picked up a small plate and placed it beside her bowl.
“Luoluo, if it’s not convenient for you, please let me know. I will grab the dishes for you.”
Bai Luochu nodded her head slightly and she reached out with her chopsticks. “Alright, alright. Hurry up and eat before the dishes get cold.”
A harmonious atmosphere filled the room as the two of them enjoyed dinner together. Even after finishing their dinner, Pei Qingfeng didn’t want to leave. Feeling a little helpless, Bai Luochu felt that she couldn’t allow him to do as he pleased any longer. He was someone great at taking advantage of the situation and now that she was injured, he turned into a shameless rascal who wouldn’t leave her alone.
“Pei Qingfeng, if you insist on staying, I’m going to chase you out. Not just out of my room, but the Desolate Region itself. Make your choice.”
Pei Qingfeng ignored her threat and firmly rejected her, “Impossible. I’m not going anywhere. Look at yourself! You were fine during dinner, why are you so angry now?” Pei Qingfeng was comparable to a young lady in love and Bai Luochu was the heartless rat chasing him out after she had her fill.
Bai Luochu hated Pei Qingfeng’s shameless acting and she snapped, “If you are really going to act like this, I will kick you out of the Desolate Region.”
Seeing that Bai Luochu was really going to blow, Pei Qingfeng could only leave the room obediently.
As for Pei Rumo, he was holed up in his room and was feeling depressed. He was thinking of a plan to return to Bai Luochu’s side.
Never in his wildest imaginations would he expect Pei Qingfeng to appear before him as he was racking his brains for an idea.
“Hey First Prince! Are you doing well? I’ve been taking care of Luoluo the entire afternoon and I failed to notice your presence.” He struck a blow at Pei Rumo the instant he appeared. It was as though his words turned into a sword as it stabbed directly into Pei Rumo’s heart. Even the blind could see that Pei Qingfeng was here to humiliate his older brother.
Pei Rumo ground his teeth so hard they nearly shattered into pieces. After taking a few deep breaths to calm down, he unhurriedly proclaimed, “I’m different from you! As the First Prince of the Cloud Water Nation, I have many things to attend to. How can I copy the behavior of the amazing Second Prince? I can’t shamelessly bug a woman for the entire day.”
Pei Rumo failed to trigger Pei Qingfeng with his words and instead, he loaded Pei Qingfeng’s bow with an arrow to be shot at himself. A delighted expression appeared on Pei Qingfeng’s face and he said, “That’s right! As you know, I am not an ambitious person. The only thing I wish to do is to protect the person I love.”
“YOU!!” Pei Rumo was struck speechless. He had never once gained the upper hand when quarrelling with his second brother and before he could think of a reply, Pei Qingfeng fired another shot at him. “I thought that the food in the Desolate Region was trash. However, after having dinner with Luo Chu, I feel that the dishes here have a certain appeal to my tastebuds.”
Every one of his words stuck a blow at Pei Rumo’s heart. In a fit of rage, he nearly ran up to choke Pei Qingfeng to death.
“If Your Second Highness has nothing else, please leave. I still have many things to take care of. Please see yourself out.” Pei Rumo was utterly enraged by Pei Qingfeng’s antics. He couldn’t do anything but to chase him out.
Pei Qingfeng didn’t want to stay as he had already accomplished his goal. He wanted to show off in front of Pei Rumo and casually add some fuel to the fire. Since he had done all that he wanted to do, there was no point in staying. Fine, I’ll leave. Staying here with this barbarian isn’t really enjoyable anyway.
“Your younger brother shall take his leave…” After a casual bow, Pei Qingfeng turned to leave the room. However, he heard Pei Rumo’s final sentence before he walked too far away. “Pei Qingfeng, don’t be too happy. The winner has yet to be decided. The greater your hopes, the harder your fall. Just wait and see.”
Pei Qingfeng felt that his elder brother was speaking a bunch of bullsh*t and he simply turned to leave.
It was too bad for Pei Qingfeng that Pei Rumo’s words came true really quickly. What in the world… What is going on? Why is Pei Rumo standing outside Luo Chu’s room so early in the morning?! When Pei Qingfeng arrived at Bai Luochu’s room in the morning, he saw Pei Rumo standing outside with a tray of breakfast. He woke up early with the intention of bringing breakfast to Bai Luochu. Could it be that Pei Rumo hadn’t slept?!
“Good morning, Your First Highness…” Pei Qingfeng knew that he couldn’t avoid greeting Pei Rumo now that they ran into each other.
Glancing at Pei Qingfeng, he remained silent. After all, Pei Qingfeng wasn’t worthy of his attention.
Without waiting for Pei Rumo’s reply, Pei Qingfeng opened the door and entered the room. Too bad for him, he was stopped by Pei Rumo. “Where do you think you’re going? Luo Chu isn’t awake yet. It’s inappropriate for you to enter her room now.”
Pei Qingfeng raised his brows and snickered, “Are you trying to say that I have bad intentions? Look at yourself. This is really the case of the pot calling the kettle black. You’ve been standing here for the whole morning… Where in the world did you find the courage to blame others for having designs on Luo Chu?”
Pei Qingfeng pushed the door and entered Bai Luochu’s room the moment he finished speaking. He turned around and closed the door before Pei Rumo could enter, preventing him from waking her up.
Pei Rumo was completely destroyed in his first exchange of blows with Pei Qingfeng. Without a choice, he could only think of another plan.Previous Chapter Next Chapter
