Chapter 184 Why later?
Mu Xuan Qing looked at Gu Qing Yu with a burning gaze, “I told you, I’m a wolf.”
And naturally, a wolf wouldn’t be a good person.
Gu Qing Yu thought about this seriously for a moment, going through the limited memory that the original owner had about Liao Zhai Zhiyi 1Strange Tales from Make-Do Studio (a collection of supernatural tales by Pu Songling (蒲松龄,1640-1715) of the Qing Dynasty), then looked at him seriously, “Sir, are you really a wolf demon?”
Mu Xuan Qing paused for a moment, then exchanged the steak he had cut in front of him with the one in front of her naturally then nodded with a faint smile.
“So Qing Yu, you should definitely not be disobedient, otherwise….. this wolf will eat you whole.”
Gu Qing Yu narrowed her eyes, “Sir, you’re lying.”
She told him smugly, “You can’t bear to eat me.”
“Later…” he stared at her with an unfathomable expression, “I’ll let you know, just how much I can bear to do that.”
Mu Xuan Qing was silent for half a minute then, “You want it now?”
Gu Qing Yu had the feeling that if she nodded, it wouldn’t end very well….
And that no matter where he was talking about that he was going to eat her, now didn’t seem like a particularly good time.
So, she shook her head.
“No, I’m sleepy.”
Then she yawned, “Sir, I want to go to sleep.”
Mu Xuan Qing was silent for a while then responded, “Alright, go to bed.”
He didn’t notice how gentle his voice was.
But then instead of her going to bed, he noticed that she nodded her head, drew in close to his shoulder, and just… leaning against him, closed her eyes and prepared to go to sleep??
Staring at her defenseless face, Mu Xuan Qing sighed…
He always felt like, she was testing him, constantly setting new hardships and obstacles for him, and the name of this hardship and obstacle, was called temptation.
Her breathing became very even. It looked like she had really fallen asleep.
Mu Xuan Qing sighed.
She was very knowledgeable in almost every way and in a little bit of everything as well as very talented, and yet in this regard…..
She was very slow, simple and naive like a child.
He could only guard this innocence.
Taking a deep breath, Mu Xuan Qing picked her up carefully, listening to her half-sleep and half-awake murmurings as he did so and then put her to bed gently, coaxing her back to sleep.
Duan Xing Yuan’s wedding was at the end of June and Gu Qing Yu also happened to be on her summer vacation. She was due to go to the Imperial Capital, to look for her Master Bai Xiu Qi, who had been looking forward to her officially coming to learn painting from him. She had also been looking forward to going for a long time.
Duan Xing Yuan’s wedding, was merely an incidental coincidence.
She hadn’t planned on going, but since Mu Xuan Qing said he wanted to take her, she decided to go.
Duan Xing Yuan’s expression froze instantly the moment he saw Gu Qing Yu, his face simply like a water -starved field. So tense that his face almost cracked.
Father Duan however, was very excited when he saw Mu Xuan Qing.
Hurriedly moving to greet him, Father Duan felt that they had really made the right decision.
Letting Duan Xing Yuan break off his engagement with that girl from the small city that he liked, and marrying the Young Miss from the Mu family, had really raised the status of their Duan family like never before. Although many people had questioned him earlier, with sentences like– Didn’t ‘Sir’ say that he thought highly of Duan Xing Yuan, and even gave him a ring representing his status in public? Why didn’t we see Sir place him in an important position after that? This hasn’t even happened, could it be that Duan Xing Yuan’s ring means nothing at all? Then did they still need to curry favor with the Duan family so much?
Father Duan had felt a little stifled, but all that disappeared today.
Sir had come to his son’s wedding!!
This was something unprecedented. It was said that Sir hadn’t even attended his elder brother’s wedding earlier!
