Chapter 61 – The Heart’s Delight (6)
In the end, it was all up to Su Xin whether she would listen to her words or not—to stay or leave.
This made Qu Feiqing feel a pang of depression.
Meanwhile, Su Xin wanted to say that she wasn’t afraid to explore the world even it meant to have to lurk at every corner when she received a reminder from Fourteen.
[Host, let me remind you that the body you are currently occupying is drastically different from your original body in physical prowess and might. If I went and calculated the numerical differences in percentages, you could even see it’s much, much worse. Furthermore, an ancient plane, such as this, doesn’t contain the cold weapons and technology you are used to in the modern age. The human beings in this plane are even well-versed in terrifying ancient martial arts, of which you are not trained in and know the lethality Although you have the system, I can only help so much. How are you going to survive?]
Despite being an assassin, Su Xin was inside Xue Yao’s body, an ordinary person who only knew how to act like a courtesan.
It was better for weak and unarmed people without any ability in martial arts to remain quiet in the corner like clucking chickens.
Under the overwhelming power of her enemies, Su Xin wouldn’t be given a chance to brandish her blade at close combat.
She’d already be dead before that would even happen.
As if a light bulb has been finally switched on, the reckless Su Xin was silent in thought. Seemingly mulling over similar thoughts.
Back in the real world, she did tasks making use of the weapons present there.
She fights alone relying on her quickness and precise, but ruthless, technique to dispose of her enemies—whether using a gun or a knife.
There are no firearm here and especially no technology that can make her resist the internal force from her enemies. The daggers here were also underdeveloped, far too underwhelming from the cold weapons of the modern age which were fashioned for the purpose of stealthy killing.
If those people knew ancient martial arts, she wouldn’t even get close to a foot near them.
“All right… I’ll stay. When will you be completely in the safe?”
Qu Feiqing was hopeful when she saw Su Xin turn quiet, she thought she would be able to rationalize it. Yet, she was proven wrong.
She shook her head, crestfallen.
If she knew despite what was said Su Xin would still want to leave, then she wouldn’t even have bothered to speak anymore.
Qu Feiqing cut the conversation abruptly by continuing towards Su Xin’s room—the end of their walk.
The stars could now be seen in full visibility, twinkling amidst the black backdrop of the night sky.
All the way back, there was only silence and the sound of uneven footsteps of two people.
Upon reaching the door, Qu Feiqing directly turned the other way to leave without any parting words.
Su Xin’s eyes burned through the back of Qu Feiqing’s head, but she did not pay attention to this and carried on.
“I guess we are not doing it tonight..” Su Xin muttered to herself looking forlornly at Qu Feiqing’s retreating back.
Fourteen was praying silently for positivity, patience and for the heavens to shine a light on this dumb host.
He felt immense sympathy for the emperor.
The host was too dumb in these affairs, it was actually scary. Her ability to mend knives is truly first-class, worthy of being called an assassin.
It was already clear the other person has already suffered a lot of damage, yet it seems like they still have to suffer a little bit more under her knife.
Qu Feiqing returned to her bedroom and stood spiritless in front of her desk.
She was very upset.
Su Xin had asked her if she liked her.
How could Qu Feiqing possibly feel just a small infatuation after everything they’ve been through?
After being the first person to have thawed her heart after her mother died, and bypassed the strong walls she had built around her?
After being the first person to have seen the real Qu Feiqing under all exquisite gowns, the crown, and the icy guise?
It has already become much, much more than that.
For the first time, Qu Feiqing unexpectedly wished she hadn’t become the emperor.
From the moment Su Xin had stepped into her life, it was then that Qu Feiqing realized:
Not power, not riches, not killing or revenge—it was Su Xin who made her happy.
