Chapter 46: Meeting Again (2)
“I wondered which a stunning beauty did you meet that made you so carried away and not even care about your own life”
Cheng Shizhao walked towards them and sneered. He put his right arm around Yu Xingzhi’s shoulder and slightly lifted his left hand.
“But it turned out she’s nothing more than average.”
He squinted his eyes and said with a frivolous tone, “Zigui, everyone around you are from the noble family, so it’s not your fault that you have never seen these women from Jianghu. She’s just playing with you.”
Yu Xingzhi pushed away his arm, and said furiously, “Your Highness!”
”That’s enough, older brothers stop fighting.” the ninth prince, Cheng Shiqi, said from the side. “We walked so many days, I’m exhausted. We should find somewhere to rest first.”
Yan Wang turned to Yu Xingzhi and said “this is our first time at Feng Xiang, shouldn’t you bring me to greet the second older cousin? Unless you want me and the ninth prince to wait here while you and this lady have a heartfelt conversation.”
“Older cousin”, Yu Xingzhi suppressed his anger and said “please wait outside with the ninth prince, I’ll come soon.”
Cheng Shizhao snorted and waved his hand to signal everyone to leave.
Yu Xingzhi turned around and softly whispered, “Xiaoxiao, don’t be upset. His Highness usually isn’t like this. Let me arrange the two princes and visit my brother, then I will come and explain everything to you.”
Zhou Xiaoxiao nodded, stood up and blinked at him with her eyes, and smiled to show that she didn’t mind. Then she signaled him with her hands that he could leave.
Yu Xingzhi clenched his fist inside his sleeves, but ended up saying nothing and left.
After Yu Xingzhi left, Zhou Xiaoxiao put her hand on her chest. She no longer felt emptiness, but instead was filled with happiness.
She gently slapped her own head.
You like him so much. He didn’t even say anything yet and you just forgave him.
This time I lost, he got me.
She organized her clothes, and just like usual she walked downstairs to make pastry with the aunties.
“Is there anything good that happened? You were smiling while working.” said Auntie Ji.
“Really? I was smiling?” Zhou Xiaoxiao smiled while touching her own face. “Today indeed is a happy day, we should eat grilled fish as lunch”
“You mean the ones from last time? When you made them by putting the fish in an iron plate with fire burning below it? Those grilled fish were tasty.” Juan Zi happily said.
“Those childe that came earlier are scary, each of them carried a weapon. When they ran in, they intimidated me.” Xiao Mei replied with a different focus.
At the same time, Wang Xun was walking on the street of QingShi, and saw Liu Cang.
Liu Cang hugged Wang Xun and said “Captain looking spirited today, where are you going? If you’re free, let’s have a drink together.”
Wang Xun touched the brand new hats on his head and replied: “I don’t have time today, I need to go to my master’s place. I’ll invite you to drink with me another day.”
“I heard Master Wu recently has a new disciple, have captain seen him yet? I went to Doctor Wu a few days ago to get some medicines, and saw the young boy practicing. So I decided to have a small battle against him and lost in only three moves.”
“Zhou… brother indeed has extraordinary skills.”
“In my opinion, the only one who can compete with that boy in Feng Xiang is only you, captain. Master Wu is good at teaching his disciples, each one of them is well trained.”
As the two of them talk, they have arrived at the house of Master Wu. However, they saw there were many people outside the house.
Wang Xun startled and left Liu Cang behind while pushing his way into the house.
