Chapter 25.5 – Longing for a Kiss (2)
Ye Chenyuan’s heart shook. He stared at her, speechless. She, couldn’t she get clear on the main point? Couldn’t she think more about herself?
Ye Chenyuan strived to look serious. “You have more use for it! I can’t have it. In the future, I’ll find even better soul settling artifacts for you. You can’t refuse them!”
Yuan Chu looked at him, puzzled. Why was he suddenly so excited?
And how could she suffer Qi Deviation? This was clearly underestimating someone!
She sighed. “I’m giving it to you, so take it. Even if you don’t use it, Venerable Li can. Anyway, I’m still young. It’s fine if you repay me with good things you find in the future. I certainly won’t try to be polite!”
Grinning, she took the box and then put it right into the Sky Pearl. “Are you sure you want to continue arguing about that silly spirit essence? I’m starving. You know, I haven’t shed the need to eat yet!”
Ye Chenyuan’s gaze was disapproving. But letting her go hungry made his heart hurt. He quickly unpacked the food, covering the entire stone table.
He secretly thought, The sect master will definitely come to find me anyway. I’ll just give it to him then and let him give them back to Master.
Although his expression was full of helplessness, his heart held a kind of joy like bubbles in honey, rising one after another.
He was truly lucky to have a master who always cared about him.
Yuan Chu indeed still needed to eat. Similarly, she still had to sleep at night. After all, she’d feel satisfied if she ate, and she enjoyed sleep, so she wouldn’t shed these worldly desires.
Her round cat eyes shone when she saw the table filled with delicacies. “Then I’ll dig in now! I remember you still eat too? Come on, let’s eat together.”
A pair of jade chopsticks stuffed in his hand, Ye Chenyuan seemed to have something more to say.
Yuan Chu was too lazy to listen to his nagging. He opened his mouth, and she stuffed a piece of spirit beast meat into his mouth. She asked, elated, “Isn’t it delicious? But no matter how good Little Qiu is, she can’t beat you! You have innate skill!”
Even now, she still remembered the meat Ye Chenyuan roasted!
But Ye Chenyuan’s face was flushed red. That pair of chopsticks, it had been used by Master! They had shared a pair of chopsticks!
Ye Chenyuan averted his gaze. Only after he swallowed everything in his mouth did he stammer, “Th-then I’ll cook next time!”
Yuan Chu gave him a look of approval. But she said no more because she was busy eating! The other good thing about this cultivation world was that the food was delicious! Besides the taste, it was also very good for the body! Such a blessing!
Speaking truthfully, seeing Yuan Chu eat was a blessing. How did she eat with such relish? Especially her cute little mouth, where a bit of powder from the pastries remained. He stared, feeling a sudden urge.
It scared him when he realized when realized what he was thinking. How could he stare at Master’s lips? Although they truly did look small and sweet, she was Master!
He tried to conceal his emotions by throwing himself at the food, but his eyes flickered and landed back on Yuan Chu’s face.
Master… she seemed to have already forgotten about her kiss.
Ye Chenyuan was a bit disappointed. Speaking of kisses, his only memory of them was from when he was still very young. Once, before he slept, his mother kissed him lightly on the forehead.
They were both kisses, yet Yuan Chu’s kiss left him with an unforgettable yearning.
But she seemed to have forgotten already.
Ye Chenyuan’s mood fell. He swallowed a bowl of rice, barely touching the dishes.
Yuan Chu didn’t wait for him. Taking advantage of his daze, she had already finished eating. She cast a cleaning art on herself, rubbed her stomach, and stood up.
“I accidentally ate too much… “ Somewhat distressed, she looked at her chubby fingers, worrying for her future body shape. But when she remembered that losing weight was a simple matter for cultivators, she immediately relaxed.
Ye Chenyuan saw that she was done and put it all away.
Yuan Chu yawned cutely. Realizing Ye Chenyuan was still there, she asked, puzzled, “Why haven’t you gone back yet? The Everlasting Heavenly Barrier has little spiritual energy, it’s not good for your cultivation if you stay long.”
Ye Chenyuan naturally knew this already, but he still replied, “It’s desolate here. I was afraid Master would get bored, so I’ve decided to stay here and accompany you!”
“Ah?” Yuan Chu had never thought that the little guy was so filial. But he was ten years old now, the fidgety age for boys. Even if he wanted to, he probably couldn’t stay long, right?
She thought carelessly and said, “Then do what you’d like. You can stay a bit longer, but you have to go back in a moment. I get sleepy when I’m full, let me sleep a bit.”
Her eyes had already closed by the time she said this. She crawled onto the stone bed on the side. The environment was awfully simple and crude. Clearly, Yuan Chu’s heart was big. It only took a second for her to fall deep asleep.
Now, Venerable Li sighed, deeply moved. “Not to mention anything else, just in terms of treating you well, she is already a qualified master.”
Anyway, he was still teaching Ye Chenyuan. There was no need to fear that she’d lead him astray.
There was a bad taste in his mouth as he watched her sleep. “She didn’t have to suffer. It’s all because of me…”
Venerable Li couldn’t stand seeing Ye Chenyuan guilty. “Enough, just be good to her in the future!”
Ye Chenyuan nodded. “I will.”
Saying this, he also climbed onto the stone bed. He sat cross-legged next to Yuan Chu and started cultivating.
Normally, he could quickly enter a meditative state. He had a calm character. He was always very conscious when he cultivated. But the milky fragrance on Yuan Chu’s body distracted him. He closed his eyes. He’d think of her lying next to him and somehow think of that kiss…
His heart burned slightly. Why did he constantly think about it?
Ye Chenyuan’s heart wouldn’t settle. He opened his eyes and looked at Yuan Chu. She was truly sleeping. Her breathing was even, her mouth curving up slightly as if she was having a good dream.
Her face was very white. Her long eyelashes fluttered slightly. Her little mouth was chubby. It definitely wouldn’t taste bad to take a bite.
No, Yuan Chu was his master! He couldn’t do that!
Ye Chenyuan resolutely shook his head. But after closing his eyes for a while, he opened his eyes again, defeated. That pair of beautiful eyes stared at Yuan Chu once more.
It was as if he was possessed, like something was luring him forward. He sat next to her, hesitating.
He slowly leaned down…
