Chapter 59 Why isn’t it you that’s eaten, but me?
However, he knelt down in front of her on one knee, grabbed one of her feet, cleaned her foot and then, applied medicine to it gently…..
Where the skin had been damaged and red and swollen, it was now cool and comfortable with no pain at all.
She smelled the faint scent of lotus.
It was the smell of ointment, wasn’t it? However, she couldn’t take her gaze away from him, despite the fact that she should have been interested in the ointment.
His hands were… warm to the touch.
Yet, for some reason, it made her gripped ankle seem as if it were being scalded…..
Mu Xuan Qing stared at her feet as he had been tempted to do earlier when he saw her walking barefoot on the road…
Sure enough, her feet were so small that he could wrap them in one hand; moreover, normally, the skin on people’s feet would be rough, but she was different; the skin on her feet was as fine and tender as the skin on her hands and body, white and smooth, making it so that one couldn’t help but love it…
The knot in his throat rolled as he stared at her feet which looked even whiter and smaller in his large hands.
Chen Ran who walked into this scene stared in awe.
Although Sir disliked having other people in the house, as all of the servants in the house could only clean when he was gone and then disappear before he returned, and had to live in a house a hundred meters away, that didn’t mean there were no servants here; all it would take was one phone call from him and the personal doctor and a servant would arrive within minutes. There was no need for him to personally apply the medicine to Miss Gu, moreover he was even kneeling partly….
Chen Ran swallowed, feeling that he had witnessed a terrible secret and that Sir would silence him in the next second…
He froze in place, unsure whether he should back up and pretend he hadn’t come in or move forward.
Luckily, Mu Xuan Qing only looked at him and said with his usual expression, “Speak.”
Sir had always been a man of few words, so Chen Ran didn’t mind. Quickly regaining his composure, he reported, “Sir, Duan Xing Yuan has sent someone to look for Miss Gu.”
Mu Xuan Qing looked at Gu Qing Yu, “What are you going to do about your fiancé….?”
“It’s ex-fiancé.” Gu Qing Yu corrected him then thought for a moment, “Will he be able to find me?”
“If you want him to find you, he will.” He responded.
“That means that if I don’t want him to find me, he won’t be able to?” Gu Qing Yu smiled sweetly, “Then, I hope he won’t be able to.”
Mu Xuan Qing nodded then looked at Chen Ran.
Chen Ran understood instantly, “Got it, Sir.”
After Chen Ran left, Mu Xuan Qing closed the medicine box and turned to leave when his sleeve was grabbed by Gu Qing Yu.
He lowered his head and looked at her already washed white and clean face, as well as her foot that wiggled up and down after he had applied the medicine to it….
His eyes darkened slightly.
Gu Qing Yu blinked and smiled even sweeter, “Sir….. I’m your person now, so where do I sleep?”
“Where do you want to sleep?” The expression on his face didn’t change.
“Since I’m your person then naturally, I’ll sleep with you!” She said without hesitation.
Mu Xuan Qing stared at the woman in front of him, silent for a long time, “If you sleep with me, you might get eaten.”
She blinked, “Why isn’t it you that’s eaten, but me?”
He was more tempting, she thought.
For the first time, Mu Xuan Qing had the feeling that he had been molested.
With a slight flutter of his eyelashes, he looked away.
“If you’re not afraid, then come up.”
