Chapter 78: Sister, Don’t Be Afraid (1)
Yun Hua was the female lead within《Night isn’t evil》for sure. Even if her relationship with Xuan Yi was tossed away, based on the revenge aspect of the storyline, she would be irreplaceable.
When Ye Yu thought of the possibility that the deviation of the storyline meant that there would be a butterfly effect for Yun Hua, she could imagine her bitter days in the future trying to fill up her pits.
Once she thought of that, Ye Yu shivered in her heart and she hurriedly put a smile on her face, looking out of the horse carriage.
Xuan Yi who was discussing with the retinue stopped talking and turned to look at her.
“Are we staying the night here?” Ye Yu asked.
“Mhm.” Xuan Yi glanced faintly at her and softly nodded.
Before Ye Yu could say anything else, Xuan Yi turned back around and ordered the retinue. Moments later, he walked back to the horse carriage and reached his hand over towards the woman who was clinging onto the door.
“Get out of the horse carriage?”
The voice was calm and peaceful. Although he held a faint gaze, one could see the deep and indescribable feelings in his gaze.
Ye Yu almost gave him her hand, but she woke up from her trance the second before she placed her hand in his.
She hurriedly withdrew her fair white fingers.
The man standing tall and aloof by the horse carriage looked in regret. However, the gaze had disappeared too quickly. Before Ye Yu could see his gaze, he looked up.
“What’s the matter?”
Ye Yu smiled and said, “I heard that there is another tavern in the town that is pretty good…and it isn’t too far from here either. Why don’t we go to that one?”
Xuan Yi said nothing, but kept his gaze trained on Ye Yu.
Ye Yu innocently looked back and even blinked her eyes.
“Where did sister Ye Yu hear this from?” He asked hoarsely.
Ye Yu said, “…This is a secret.”
Xuan Yi’s gaze was trained on her figure and he slightly blinked his pitch-black eyes.
Seemingly unconsciously, he gradually reached for Ye Yu’s face and softly caressed her face and chin.
Then, he stopped.
Ye Yu was speechless.
Was it an illusion that she felt as if she was about to be swallowed?
Just as Ye Yu felt ill at ease by her gut instinct, the man who was still caressing her warm face softly chuckled mixed along with a tint of hoarseness.
“Sister is such a… mysterious person.”
Before Ye Yu snapped out of her trance, Xuan Yi placed his hand down. “Since it’s a secret that you can’t say, then we shouldn’t be going there. Sister Ye Yu, why don’t you stay the night at this tavern with me?”
Once he finished, Xuan Yi turned around and left the horse carriage.
Ye Yu who was peeking out of the horse carriage looked expressionlessly.
Therefore, she was just caressed by him for no reason?
Xuan Yi refused to change the tavern, so Ye Yu had no choice but to think of another solution.
They had the retinues attend to the miscellaneous tasks, so Ye Yu didn’t need to look after it. Seeing that Xuan Yi was heading to the tavern, she also got off the horse carriage and entered the tavern.
The retinue ordered for the owner to manage a table full of great and expensive dishes, then they brought Xuan Yi and Ye Yu upstairs.
The shopkeeper and the waiter of the store only got some quick glances of the retinues’ outfits, but they couldn’t help but be still scared. They hurriedly ordered the kitchen to speed up the cooking and prepare the food.
After all, just looking at the subordinates’ outfits, one could tell that they were extraordinary people. Therefore, one can only imagine how high the master’s status was.
Once they reached the second floor, Xuan Yi casually pointed towards a spot near the window. He was about to walk over when he heard that the footsteps of the person who he had been thinking about stopped by the staircase.
He was suspicious and turned around to look, only to see Ye Yu glancing at a far corner of the second floor, stunned. She was facing sideways towards a woman clad in white.
That woman was wearing a white veil over her face.
Xuan Yi didn’t know why, but he found the woman clad in white was a bit familiar.
However, the white veil didn’t seem to be ordinary, but more like a tool…therefore, the other party must be a cultivator.
If he wanted to pry into this person’s status, he must extend his consciousness. However, towards a stranger he had met for just the first time, it was clearly a bit rude and impolite.
Thinking of this, Xuan Yi stopped bothering with this and he glanced straight at Ye Yu, asking, “You’re not going?”
Ye Yu snapped out of her trance and tugged a smile on.
…sigh, she really underestimated the stubborn and tenacious attitude of the original storyline.
Since Yun Hua was here, the storyline after this should be heading in a steady path.
Ye Yu answered and walked over.
As a result, they followed one another and sat by the seats near the window.
The owner who didn’t dare to neglect quickly brought the dishes and wine up to the table. In other people’s perspectives, the useless Xuan Yi who had no cultivation had taken a few bites before noticing that Ye Yu who sat across from him was absent-minded.
