Chapter 74: My Wings Aren’t Always Delicate And I’m Willing To Share The Burden With You (3)
Zhou Xiaoxiao looked down at the invitation and softly said, “What’s not suitable? Lady State Duke is also a person, not a tiger. Could an elderly lady eat me? Even if I can’t win against her, I can at least run away.”
She closed the invitation and said, “Go and reply to the person that I will go over tomorrow morning.”
The next day, wet nurse Yu received an order to lead the rumored Lady Zhou to the central building.
In these few months, the entire residence has heard of Lady Zhou and her accomplishments. Now that they looked at her, she seemed to be different from what they expected.
Wet nurse Yu murmured as she walked.
Although she has a delicate appearance, it wasn’t overly caked with makeup. She has a tall and thin figure, well-proportioned with her height. While they walked passed all the paths, she remained calm and her face wasn’t blushed, a gentle look on her face.
State Duke Residence has a magnificent landscape and its interiors were flourishing, flaunting how wealthy the people are. She walked naturally and gracefully, not seeming to be petty and low, or purposefully acting proud and arrogant.
She isn’t easy to deal with. Wet nurse Yu decided.
While they were about to walk past the corridor, who knew that Lord Wu walked out of a door.
Yu Xingzhi blocked them and held a solemn expression, holding Zhou Xiaoxiao’s hands and walking off with her.
Wet nurse Yu hastily stopped them and said, “Unacceptable, unacceptable, Lord Wu. Lady especially invited Lady Zhou over today.”
Then she stomped on her feet and said, “Where did Yu Tong and the other people go? The Lady especially ordered for us to not startle Lord Wu.”
Yu Xingzhi coldly glared at her and he was on the verge of exploding in anger.
Wet nurse Yu couldn’t help but take a few steps back.
She could only watch as Yu Xingzhi pull Zhou Xiaoxiao away.
Wet nurse clutched her heart and thought: Since Lord Wu was a child, he was always the most gentle and considerate person. What’s wrong with him today? He really has been cast a spell.
Yu Xingzhi pulled Zhou Xiaoxiao and walked for a while before stopping. He adjusted his emotions and turned around.
He carefully stared at the person in front of him and reached over to help brush her hair to the side. He gently said, “Xiaoxiao, I’ll bring you back. You don’t need to come here.”
“Why? You don’t want me to see your mother?”
“Naturally, that’s not the case. It’s just mother…she doesn’t know you yet and I haven’t convinced her either. I don’t want you to face her anger and endure this for no reason.”
He held Zhou Xiaoxiao’s hands and gently rubbed it. His hands were big and warm; his voice was warm and gentle.
Zhou Xiaoxiao thought it was very sweet of him. Although she frequently felt helpless with him, at least he had the thought of guarding and protecting over her.
She had already passed the stage of holding unrealistic thoughts about love. She knew very well about the pressure she would need to endure for their love and as well as the hardships they needed to overcome.
Her heart was thumping rapidly and was full of happiness.
“I will do my best to handle everything. When I have the power to give you a steady and content environment, I will personally hold your hands and bring you to see my mother and my family, ok?”
He kept talking but Zhou Xiaoxiao was a bit distracted.
He’s so handsome. I really want to kiss him.
She bit her lip while thinking about this and couldn’t help but reach over to brush the hair on his forehead to the side.
There was a bruise as if something rough had knocked against his head.
“Is your mother very fierce?”
Yu Xingzhi was stunned.
“Could she be even more fierce than Prince Yan?”
“Mother naturally isn’t like older cousin who is aggressive and mentions killing casually. It’s just…” Yu Xingzhi revealed a worried expression as he knew what Zhou Xiaoxiao was talking about.
“Xingzhi, I said I will wait for you.”
She looked up at Yu Xingzhi and her eyes were sparkling.
“But I didn’t mean that I was going to stand behind and wait for you to take care of and protect me.”
She held Yu Xingzhi’s hands and slowly walked through this trail with him.
As they walked, she continued to say, “I want to walk shoulder to shoulder with you. Together. Even if there are hardships, I’m not afraid. I’m not always weak and I’m willing to share the burden with you.”
She suddenly felt a shadow over her.
Yu Xingzhi looked down and kissed her.
