Chapter 93: Tag Along
“Miss, you seem uncomfortable?” Ming Huo lowered his head, and the tip of his nose slightly touched Qi Huan's white neck, causing her to shiver in fear.
“I, I, I am o-okay, r-ruler, if there's nothing else, then I'll leave first~” Qi Huan fumbled for the doork.n.o.b behind her, intending to escape. This Ruler Ming Huo was too dangerous, it was better to keep a distance from him.
“I can send you back, miss.” Ming Huo chuckled. The heat from his exhaled breath made Qi Huan's neck numb and heartbeat felt a little uncontrollable.
After finally finding the doork.n.o.b, Qi Huan breathed a sigh of relief, and leaned sideways to avoid Ruler Ming Huo's face, which was a little more dangerous than a bomb. She pulled hard, the wooden door was easily opened, and then she turned back towards the ruler and gave a brilliant smile, “Ruler, enjoy your bath, I shall leave first, bye.”
With a bang, the wooden door was closed again. Qi Huan leaned on the wooden door and slowly slid down, feeling that her legs were uncontrollably weak. This man is too terrifying!
On the opposite side of the door, Ming Huo touched his smooth chin with interest, “Qi Huan? Hehe, she's really interesting.”
“Ruler…” A low, old voice came from the other side of the bath. Qi Huan didn't even notice that there were actually three people in the room.
“Lang Qi, what did you see?” Ruler Ming Huo pulled off the towel around his waist, walked slowly down the bath, stretched out his graceful arms, leaning on the side of the bath, squinting his eyes and listening to his personal guard's report.
“She has the nine-tailed celestial fox.” The guard who was hiding in the dark spoke very succinctly, but straight to the point.
“Oh, haha, well, I have to say, Yan'er is pretty sensible now, at least he knows the severity of the matter.” Then, Ming Huo's thin lips lifted slightly, drawing into an upward curve.
“Ruler, you want to keep her?” Lang Qi suddenly spoke after a long time.
“Having her here is…really no problem, after all, she is quite an interesting little thing.” Ruler Ming Huo's loud laughter spread in the dark hall after he finished speaking.
Probably after being strongly stimulated, Qi Huan unexpectedly found her way back. She ran in vain for half an hour, and finally returned to her bedroom. She dragged the little fox by the tail to the bed, and then collapsed on the bed.
She had really been unfortunate lately. She vowed that even if she was bored to death, she would absolutely not dare to wander around in Ming Huo Palace again.
It's a pity that things backfired. As soon as the sky just turned bright the next day, Qi Huan heard a knock on the door.
She didn't know why but ever since she ascended, she always felt groggy, even if she went to bed as soon as the sky got dark, she also woke up very late the next day.
The non-stop knocking on the door made Qi Huan feel even more angry when she got up. She sat up straight and stared at the door wickedly.
“Miss Qi Huan, are you in there?” A low, sweet voice came into the room.
“No.” Qi Huan replied before falling back down and covering her head with her blanket. Please just pretend that I'm dead. My head hurts. How come my body becomes so problematic after I became a deity? Is it that I'm not used to the weather here?
“Oh~ Then I, the ruler, will just wait outside the door.” The voice didn't contain any displeasure, instead, there was a kind of gentleness.
The ruler? Qi Huan was stunned for a moment, then she suddenly remembered the owner of the voice, and she jumped out of bed. Sh*t! Why is the Ruler Ming Huo here? Doesn't he have anything else better to do?
Qi Huan hurriedly put on her clothes. She forgot to put on her shoes as she rushed to the door, “I didn't know it was you, ruler, I apologize for sounding rude.” As the door was opened, Ruler Ming Huo's enchanting face was facing directly at Qi Huan. His face was even dazzling a little under the sunlight.
Qi Huan tried her best to squeeze out a smile. She couldn't do anything to him as he was the ruler of this place and she was in his territory. If this was in her own place, she would have smashed the person with thunder if anyone dared to disturb her sleep.
“Miss Qi, you seem to be in good spirits.” The corner of Ming Huo's mouth raised, and his eyes stayed on Qi Huan's delicate white feet a little longer.

“Uh… haha, it must be because you're here, ruler.” The corners of Qi Huan's eyes twitched a bit. He woke her up early in the morning just to say such innocuous things to her. This man was really too bored! Shouldn't he be asleep with his wife at this time? Also, which eye of his saw that she was in good spirits!
If this was in the modern times, Ming Huo could be considered a good man of husband material. He could rule the hall and he knew how to cook. He looked handsome and his strength was unfathomable. He was basically a perfect man except for his perverted eyes.
Of course, Qi Huan only appreciated him, she didn't have the courage to like such a person. Nevermind their age since she herself was already several hundred years old, and age really didn't matter much after becoming a deity. The problem is that according to Yu Long'er, Ruler Ming Huo was a l.u.s.tful man. He had never married, but he had 18 children. Qi Huan hated this kind of man the most. So, no matter how good his att.i.tude was, she just wasn't impressed.
“Would you like to play chess?” After spending some time on the s.p.a.ceship, Qi Huan had taught Ming Huo to play backgammon, but unfortunately, after teaching him, she became the loser. Except for the first match where she taught him, she lost in every match after that.
Fortunately, he didn't place any bets with her, otherwise she would have been broke by now.
“No.” Reaching out to take the cup of green tea that Ming Huo handed over, Qi Huan took a sip. Although she didn't know what it was made of, it was unexpectedly sweet. After a sip, it left a kind of fragrance in her mouth, even her breath had a sweet taste.
“Do you want to play dice?” The pair of dice was made by Qi Huan when she was idle and bored in the mortal world. A few days ago, when she was playing with the little fox, Ming Huo saw her, and decided to learn from her. Later, she found that Ming Huo was really very good at games. If he didn't become G.o.d one day, he should really become a gambler in the modern world.
Qi Huan's successive refusal did not disappoint Ming Huo though. Unlike those aloof deities, his temper seemed particularly good. He would never be angry at her, no matter what she said.
However, she felt that these were all just on the surface, and the true Ruler Ming Huo might be quite a terrifying character. There are a total of 36 cities in the immortal world, amongst them, four are main cities. Ming Huo City is one of the main cities. Although she didn't know why Ming Huo City was not lively, she understood that the person who could be the ruler of one of the four main cities in the immortal world, was not someone simple.
“Then let's chat.” Ruler Ming Huo sat beside Qi Huan, propped his chin like a child, and looked at her while blinking his eyes.
“…Ruler Ming Huo, aren't you tired?”
“I won't get tired, seeing you.”
G.o.d, please forgive me. Qi Huan rolled her eyes, wondering who she had offended in her last life, to have her meet this kind of man.
