Chapter 32 – What Did You Do Last Night?
In the darkness, because of the not being able to see affect. A person’s other senses began to magnify.
Nan Yan was kneeling beside the bed. It was a pitch-black night and she could barely see anything. However, she could clearly hear every single one of Zhu Feng’s breaths and heartbeats.
She could even feel his warm breath pass through the bed curtains, as if it could dye her body. In fact, she could not perceive anything at all, but was too distressed to close her eyes.
In the dark, she sensed that there was a pair of eyes staring at her and faintly felt that this night she would not have a good sleep…
Sunrays were distinctly seen through the window, however, Si Nan Yan was still trapped in the shadows of her dream.
Until Ye Zheng’s voice softly whispered in her ear, saying:
“Miss Si, Miss Si, wake up!”
He shook her shoulder and Nan Yan finally opened her eyes, waking up from her dreams. Ye Zheng stood in front of her and was bending over to look at her.
“Ye—, Lord Ye?”
“You can really sleep well. At this time, why are you still not awake yet? ”
Nan Yan was confused, but when she looked down again she almost jumped up from the bed in alarm. Since her two legs were curled up for a whole night they had become numb. Unconsciously making her fall backwards.
She was sitting beside the bed and yet she fell asleep at the bedside!
How could this be?
Where is His Highness, Yan Wang?
Looking up at the bed, the linen was still messy but the person had vanished. The confusion immediately awakened her and sobered her up. Hastily, Nan Yan held the bed pillar on the corner to get up.
Ye Zheng also stretched out his hand to help her.
“Lord Ye, what about His Highness?”
“His Highness has woken up and has, now gone off to work .”
“Ah? Then I— ”
Nan Yan regretted and hated how she could sleep so much. More importantly, she hated how she slept so heavily. In addition, the most serious thing was that she slept beside Zhu Feng’s bed and did not even know when he had left!
Ye Zheng was somewhat stupefied. Just a moment ago, he walked into Wu Ying Hall and saw that she was lying on the bedside, asleep. He was scared out of his wits.
Everyone knows that Wang Ye was born in the ranks of the military, and even if it was not really to the extent of “easily killing a person in his dreams”. But because, those who marched on the battlefield had developed such a vigilance comparable to the instincts of wild animals. When he went to bed at night, he seldomly let anybody approach him.
Even Wangfei or several other concubines in the Wangfu cannot stay in Wang Ye’s room.
This is the reason.
But this woman fell asleep at the bedside of Wang Ye.
Did she come over by herself or…
While hesitating on whether to ask or not, Si Nan Yan had promptly grabbed his hand and stood up, gasping slightly and said:
“Wang Ye has gone off to work, then do I have to— ”
Ye Zheng hesitated for a moment, and then said:
“Wang Ye only commanded that I should not make any noise that would disturb you.”
Nan Yan looked at him in surprise:
“What do you mean?”
Ye Zheng said:
“I do not know, but this was the only order that Wangye gave me. But as the time of day was getting very late, I was not afraid to wake you up.”
Ye Zheng looked down at the bed for a long time before saying:
“Miss Si, what did you do last night?”
Si Nan Yan was suddenly speechless.
She was still a little ignorant, so far, she did nothing truthfully. She just fanned him as she saw Zhu Feng was having a terrible nightmare. Afterwards, she was almost killed under his sword.
Later, she was ordered to stay beside the bed. And she had no idea how she was going to get through the night. Who knew that when she woke up, it would already be daylight.
Yan Wang…..has done nothing.
