XuanYuan LianCheng‘s eyes darkened deeply in a flash as he stared at the woman within his arms.
Meanwhile, the confused Mu QianQian, who had momentarily regained her mind at the sudden cold breeze that had blown against her neck, jolted up in a shock as she realized that she had wrapped her arms hungrily around his waist.
She released him in a panic before taking two steps backward while feeling her blood freezing at the chill within his eyes.
Unfortunately for her, the chill merely lasted for a few seconds, before it was relaxed entirely by a new wave of uncontainable heat, which she tried desperately to restrain but to no avail.
Damn it, this familiar feeling again! She had literally been forced to endure the power of an aphrodisiac poison the night before, not even an entire day had passed and she had to taste it once more!
By now, she knew it must’ve been the two bowls of soup, but she could not understand the reason why the Queen Dowager would do this, was it really necessary?
Was the Queen Dowager upset about the slow progress between XuanYuan LianCheng and her, hence she would provide them with the opportunity to explore each other’s body?
How about him? Would he suspect that she was in league with the Queen Dowager? Since she DID return from the Queen Dowager’s quarters…
She took another step backward, staring at him intently as she bit down hard on her lips in a desperate attempt to keep her mind, “It wasn’t me, I didn’t know.” She explained sincerely.
“Then, do you know now?” He stared at her trembling legs and the thin layer of sweat on her forehead, it was obvious that the aphrodisiac had already spread throughout her entire body.
That old woman’s original intentions were to make each of them drink a bowl of soup, but this woman had gobbled down both bowls just to chase the two handmaidens away.
And it was exactly because of this that he knew she wasn’t lying. If she had been in league with the Queen Dowager, she would’ve surely tried to get him to drink the other bowl.
He was not an idiot who could not deduce these situations.
Mu QianQian reached out towards the table as she felt her legs give way beneath her, only to miss her mark and fall straight onto the ground, but the expected pain did not happen as she had landed within his arms instead.
This prince might look cold, but his heart might still contain a ounce of kindness.
“Please help me to the chair,” She tugged at his sleeves weakly before rasping hoarsely.
XuanYuan LianCheng stood up immediately and moved towards the bed while carrying her in his arms.
But his actions send her into a huge shock before a scream escaped her lips in a panic, “No! I don’t want to! Please don’t do this, I don’t want to do it with you! I don’t want to!”
He froze in his footsteps as he glanced down at her face.
Her entire face was flushed, and the desire within her eyes was unconcealable, but still this woman was screaming rejections at him.
She doesn’t want to do it with him! She doesn’t want him!
Was it truly her wishes, or was it just an act that to ignite his desire to dominate her? Either way, he doesn’t like her acting this way.
Accept his kind help, or get lost entirely!
Here you go! Hope y’all enjoy it (´▽｀)
