Chapter 26: Willing to Leave
Other than her master, she, Gu Feiyan had never been afraid of anything nor anyone for that matter.
She was only shocked at the General’s disrespect. Well, since it has come to this, then there’s no need for her to worry much less feel any slight guilt.
Gui Feiyan stopped her struggles and said, “Since Elder Brother Yifei is in such a good mood, then this Little Sister will follow you to the ends of time!”
Cheng Yifei parted his lips, shocked and stunned, but soon after, he laughed heartily. Not mentioning the others, even Gu Feiyan believed he was in a cheerful mood.
Cheng Yifei only planned to threaten her to scare Gu Feiyan off. He never thought she’d be so daring. Since she’s like this, then he’ll go all the way. He never cared much for the thoughts and opinions of others. Besides, rather than having the world criticize him for being incompetent that Qi Yu’s fiancee saved him, it’d be better to let the world know that he’s putting on a green hat!
Note: In China “wearing a green hat” (戴绿帽子 or dài lǜ mào zǐ) is an expression that Chinese use when a woman cheats on her husband or boyfriend because the phrase sounds similar to the word for a cuckold.
Chen Yifei did not know Qi Yu had immediately gone to her house in the middle of the night to break off the engagement. Otherwise, he’d laugh to his grave. He was curious about Qi Yu’s reaction. Was this woman not afraid of angering the Qi Clan and attempting to break off their engagement? If so, she had guts!
And just like this, Gu Feiyan and Cheng Yifei walked to the second floor’s private room with their arms linked around each other’s shoulders. Once they arrived at the private room, Gu Feiyan took advantage of Cheng Yifie’s inattentiveness and immediately broke away from his grasp, retreating a couple steps back to distance herself from him.
Just because she cared not for gossip, it did not mean that she was a casual woman!
Chen Yifei raised his brows, eyes locked on hers. He smiled smugly and shrugged it off before calling for the waiter, ordering a variety of food and wine.
“Serve the dishes quickly,” Said Cheng Yifei, tone a bit too hurried.
Gu Feiyan sat down at the farthest seating away from him while she secretly rubbed her belly. She was too hungry. Her stomach moaned and imitated the sound of a dying whale.
Cheng Yifei looked over her with sufficient interest while saying not a word.
Gu Feiyan lowered her head and used her hand to cover herself to block him from seeing any further.
Cheng Yifei laughed again. His mood seemed to be good. Not long after, he asked, “Little medicine girl, aren’t you afraid that he’ll cancel your engagement?”
Gu Feiyan replied, “So what?”
Cheng Yifie could no longer take her seriously. He coughed lightly and chose to remain silent.
Meanwhile, the room faced the bustling street. The noise outside the window did not stop for a long time. No doubt, many people waited on standby to see them go downstairs. Cheng Yifei went to close the window silently, disgusted with the noise.
Gu Feiyan glanced at him but didn’t say anything.
Not long after, the food and wine arrived. A large table of delicious wine and food was placed before them. It was steaming hot, while a fragrant aroma filled the air.
Gu Feiyan took a deep breath and felt every pore in her body full of appetite! She couldn’t wait for the gluttonous meal, but in the end, she endured it. She asked the waiter to bring a pot of rice porridge and two plates of vegetables.
Seeing that she did not intend to drink and eat, Cheng Yifei became dissatisfied. “Didn’t we agree to keep you company until the end and not return until you’re drunk? What, you’re going to lose to me after closing the door?”
Gu Feiyan ignored him.
Cheng Yifei personally poured a large cup of hot wine and placed it in front of her.
A cynical, evil smile suffused his lips as he spoke slowly. “Little medicine girl, we soldiers hate those who dare not speak! This General will give you one last chance. Either drink all the wine on the table or tell this General if you stole the prescription… ”
Before Cheng Yifei could finish, Gu Feiyan suddenly stood up and placed a bowl of rice porridge in front of him. She looked at his pair of wild and untamed eyes and sternly taught him a lesson. “General Cheng, as a medicine girl, we hate patients who disobey orders. Your stomach has only just recovered. It can’t even be said that you have recovered, much less fully recovered! In this sort of situation, Imperial Physician Su must have told you that your three meals must be light, easy to digest, and should be taken according to the schedule. Also, remember never to drink alcohol or tea and never eat sour, spicy, sticky, or hard food!”
As she spoke, she casually carried over another plate of vegetables and placed it in front of him with a loud ‘bang.’
“Eat this dish of vegetables. Don’t even think about wine!” Her tone was still stern and cold as if she was saying an order.
Cheng Yifei was such a rebellious person! How could he be easily taught a lesson? However, when he met Gu Feiyan’s relatively bright eyes, it seemed as if some enchantment possessed him. He didn’t move or speak for a long time, and even his gaze seemed to be giving out respect.
Gu Feiyan did not notice the change in his eyes. After she finished lecturing him, she went back to her seat, lowered her head and continued to eat, neither hurried nor slow. If she ate slowly, her stomach would starve to death, but if she were to gulp down such a large amount of food, her stomach would be in great pain.
Cheng Yifei recovered from his shock and spoke in a much gentler tone. “Little medicine girl, you… is your stomach sick too? ”
Gu Feiyan answered with an “En” and didn’t say anything more.
Cheng Yifei looked at the fine wine and dishes, then looked at the plain porridge and vegetables in front of him. In the end, he listened to what Gu Feiyan said, and obediently ate the porridge and vegetables.
Of course, Cheng Yifei listened to her obediently, but he did not forget the important matter. As soon as he finished the porridge, he walked over to her side and asked with interest, “Little medicine girl, with a full stomach, do you have the strength to speak the truth?”
“General Cheng, I’m speaking the truth. If you don’t believe me, I really can’t help it.”
Gu Feiyan had hardened her heart and would not admit it even if she was beaten to death. She didn’t believe that this guy would do anything to her after she lost her reputation.
However, reality proved that Cheng Yifei had no bottom line. Without a word, he suddenly picked her up and carried her on his shoulder!
Gu Feiyan was caught off guard. She was stunned! However, she quickly regained her senses and started struggling. “Let go of me! Let go! Cheng Yifei, you’re a dignified Great General, yet you play the part of a hooligan. Do you have any shame?”
“Did you secretly place the prescription?” Cheng Yifei was very persistent.
Gu Feiyan was angry, but she did not struggle and did not waste any words. She fiercely rushed forward and bit down on his back. Not only did Cheng Yifei not cry out in pain, he even laughed loudly. He opened the door and walked out in massive strides.
Gu Feiyan didn’t expect him to be so daring. She was shocked and subconsciously let go of her hand. She wanted to stop him, but it was already too late.
Shouts and exclamations arose from all around. It was undoubtedly the voices of Cheng Yifei’s female fans who were guarding the door. Besides the cries, there were also several comments regarding their piqued curiosity.
It was unknown whether it was due to her head was upside down or her embarrassment, but both her ears and cheeks were flushed red. It was so hot that it seemed to be on fire.
No matter how calm she was, she was still a girl! Cheng Yifei’s actions was indeed that of a hooligan! How could she still have the heart to bite? She buried her face in his firm back, afraid to look around.
Cheng Yifei carried her like this as he walked down the stairs and headed for the main entrance. However, before he even reached the door, he saw a tall and handsome man walking towards him.
Cheng Yifei stopped in his tracks. His untamed eyes lit up with joy. The person who was heading in his direction was none other than His Highness Prince Jun, the prince Cheng Yifie admires most.
Prince Jun… He actually came!?
