The child Cui Er mentioned finally appeared, so Xia Yuqing would naturally not miss this opportunity. This is very likely to become the key figure of her own big brother’s future, a future brother-in-law!
Therefore, after learning this key piece of information, Xia Yuqing was so anxious that she ran to inform her Senior Brother while Cui Er was not paying attention.
It’s a pity that Xia Yuqing, who was so excited to pull some strings, instead got the bad news that her Senior Brother was not in the house. Xia Yuqing then suddenly remembered that she hadn’t seen Su Wuduan beside Cui Er recently. Could it be that he went to frequent brothels again?
For this reason, Xia Yuqing was wringing her wrists for a long time. She secretly cursed her Senior Brother for s.c.r.e.w.i.n.g up during the critical moment and wasting her kindness.
Although it was a pity in her heart, Xia Yuqing still wanted to see this person! Cui Er was the maid who has been with Xia Yuqing the longest. The first person she saw when Xia Yuqing transmigrated and opened her eyes was Cui Er. Therefore, Cui Er’s position in Xia Yuqing’s heart was naturally not the same as other people.
Cui Er has been with her for many years and it was rare to have a relative suddenly appear, thus Xia Yuqing naturally paid special attention to it. Cui Er was immediately asked to pick up the person, but it was noon when Xia Yuqing actually saw them.
As soon as she heard the person was coming, Xia Yuqing immediately shot the sleepy bug out of the clouds. In high spirits, she went straight to the front hall to see Cui Er and a black-clothed young person with their back turned to her.
Cui Er was the first to discover Xia Yuqing’s arrival. She turned to salute: “Niang Niang, this is Nu Bi’s…younger cousin, Ye Shuyan.”
If it was normal, Xia Yuqing would definitely notice that when Cui Er talked about her little cousin, the expression on her face was distorted for a moment. However, it was a pity that her attention was completely attracted to the young man with his back to her at this time, so she didn’t realize this at all.
The young man with his back to her heard the conversation between the two and slowly turned around. A handsome face that was a bit childish and coquettish came into Xia Yuqing’s eyes, making Xia Yuqing tremble.
The boy on the opposite side of her seemed to be only seventeen or eighteen years old, yet there was still a bit of childishness remaining on his face. A pair of crystal clear eyes with the water waves, clear and moving, was deep and bright. His bright red lips lifted up to a faint curve, making his entire face exude an intimate and gentle aura, but the most important thing was not this, it was the red mark on the boy’s forehead.
It looked as coquettish as a Devil’s snare, but also like the heartbreaking red of a spider lily.
Xia Yuqing stared dumbly at the young man not far away for a long time. She finally couldn’t help but curse in her heart: F*ck, can he be more gorgeous? Also what is with his otherworldly n.o.bleman fas.h.i.+on! Isn’t he supposed to be the boy next door? What about the cute boy I was expecting? The young man in front of me can’t be said to be pure and cute, but…but…
In Xia Yuqing’s subconscious, Cui Er, who was sold into the palace, must not have had a very good family background, otherwise, they would not be reduced to selling their children. In this case, this so-called relative’s child…shouldn’t he be the kind who wore tank tops and pants in the fields, smiles honestly, and may have a few big white teeth missing, a typical village boy?
This outfit, demeanour, appearance and temperament in front of her was obviously superior. At first glance, one could tell this gorgeous and beautiful young man was adored and treasured. Could it be that she was thinking wrong? Cui Er’s family was actually a…declining aristocrat?
Xia Yuqing felt she was once again covered in blood by this broken world.
Seeing Xia Yuqing standing on the spot, Cui Er remained silent for a long time with the same expression, then she finally couldn’t help but remind aloud: “Ahem, Niang Niang… Niang Niang … Nu Bi’s cousin…”
Xia Yuqing swiftly awoke from a certain young man’s n.o.ble temperament, her inner admiration bluntly expressed in words: “beautiful…beautiful…beautiful young man!”
Cui Er and Ye Shuyan at the same time stared at each other for a moment. Ye Shuyan couldn’t help but laugh.
It’s okay not to laugh, but once Xia Yuqing saw this laugh, it made it even more difficult to stay calm. Although she had seen countless beautiful men since transmigrating and even having a beautiful man like the Ultra Seme Lord, the most enticing treasures were the ones dangling in front. She was more or less a little tired from beautiful aesthetics, but it was the first time she had ever seen a beautiful man that was like a white lotus in summer, so clean and clear!
Cough cough, okay, Master Yin does not count. She originally did mistake Master Yin for a white lotus flower, but then she found out that he was a man-eating flower, moreover it was one that specialized in eating little white rabbits!
When Xia Yuqing witnessed the white lotus Yin Gongzi mutate into a man-eating flower, something that can eat rabbits, she had never thought that that would happen. It’s truly remembering eating but not remembering being struck (falling into the same mistake)….This is how tragedies arise!
After Xia Yuqing screamed inside for a while, she finally couldn’t bear the excitement in her heart. She quickly rushed to Cui Er’s side. She clutched Cui Er’s arm: “Cui Er, is he really your little cousin? Why does he look so beautiful, it’s…it’s…”
Before Xia Yuqing finished her howling, Ye Shuyan couldn’t help but laugh out again. The appearance of that warm voice made Xia Yuqing stiff all over, then she realized her gaffe. She turned her head to face Ye Shuyan. She reluctantly smiled: “Um, I’m sorry, everyone has a love for beauty. I just got a little excited, a little excited. Hehehe…”
Yiii, now I am embarra.s.sed, I completely threw away my face. Please treat it as if you didn’t see anything!
Ye Shuyan shook his head indifferently. He could see that Xia Yuqing was not like those people who saw his face in the past. There was no awe, covetousness, or obscenity in her eyes. There was only excitement… and pure appreciation!
“Niang Niang is being too serious. It is this little person who came to visit rashly and troubled Niang Niang. Please forgive me.”
Xia Yuqing was startled, and what followed was a more excited wolf howling. Waahhh…not only good-looking, but even the voice is great! Such a person is simply challenging a human’s endurance, making people wander between angels and demons. This is the ultimate crime-inducing item that will cause people to suffer!
Second Royal Brother, come and see, Little Royal Sister has finally helped you find your person!
Seeing that Xia Yuqing began to stare at himself again, Ye Shuyan smiled slightly: “The Empress does not need to be nervous, this little person is Cui Er’s cousin, not a bad person who is hiding their evil intentions, so you can feel rest a.s.sured.”
Xia Yuqing’s smile on her face was slightly stiff. She didn’t expect that her own brain that was filled with fantasies would have caused such a misunderstanding. She just wanted to explain when she heard a low cat cry.
Xia Yuqing was stunned for a moment and followed the sound, only to discover that the young man was carrying a small…cat in his arms?
The cat’s hair was pure black and Ye Shuyan’s clothes were also pure black. In addition, Xia Yuqing’s attention was focused on Ye Shuyan’s face, so with a rough glance, she really didn’t notice the other person was holding a living creature in his arms.
Xia Yuqing pointed at the little black cat nestled in Ye Shuyan’s arms with a bit of surprise, and asked in a low voice, “This is your cat?”
Ye Shuyan nodded. He stretched out his hand to smooth the cat’s black s.h.i.+ny hair in his arms.
Seeing that Xia Yuqing finally found out about it’s existence, the little black cat yawned lazily, then jumped up from Ye Shuyan’s arms and rushed towards Xia Yuqing.
Xia Yuqing was unprepared. Seeing a ball of black flying towards her, she gasped and took a few steps back.
“Niang Niang!” Cui Er was also taken aback. She quickly stepped forward and inserted herself between the two, blocking Xia Yuqing, before the cat pounced on her. She held it in her arms.
“Niang Niang, are you okay?” Cui Er held the cat in her arms, turned around and asked with some worry.
Ye Shuyan did not expect that the always well-behaved cat would suddenly become so restless. His soft eyes became cold. He glanced at the little black cat. He succeeded in making the struggling little black cat’s hair stand up. It calmed down, then it’s ears drooped down timidly. With some grievances, it yelled: “Meow meow…”
Hey, I just saw Xiao Qing Er and was very happy so I wanted to play with Xiao Qing Er right away. That wasn’t intentional!
Seeing the little black cat calm down, Ye Shuyan turned his head to look at Xia Yuqing and asked with concern: “Is Niang Niang okay? Mimi is not sensible and disturbed Niang Niang, I hope Niang Niang can forgive it and spare it this time.”
Xia Yuqing was just startled by the sudden pounce of the little black cat and didn’t suffer any injuries. Seeing the little black cat listlessly in Cui Er’s arms and from time to time peeking out with its watery cat eyes, for some reason, Xia Yuqing suddenly felt that within the cat’s eyes there was some obvious… grievance.
Just like this, the lover of all cute things, Xia Yuqing, was ruthlessly melted by the little black cat without warning. She coughed softly: “It’s okay, it doesn’t seem to be malicious.”
The little black cat looked like it understood Xia Yuqing’s words. The drooping cat ears stood up again and it kicked out its paws in Cui Er’s arms. At the same time, it kept waving its front paws towards Xia Yuqing, eyes s.h.i.+ny, staring closely at Xia Yuqing, full of expectations.
“What is it?” Xia Yuqing looked at the little black cat’s little movements that became excited again.
“Well, Niang Niang, it seems to want you to carry it.” Cui Er held the cat in her arms, feeling… embarra.s.sed for the first time in her life.
If she gave the cat to Xia Yuqing, she was really worried that the cat will go crazy and scratch Xia Yuqing, but if she didn’t give the cat to Xia Yuqing, the cat may become unhappy and act up…this was that person’s pet, she couldn’t afford to do anything.
“Carry it?” Xia Yuqing turned her head to look at Ye Shuyan and asked: “Can I…can I carry it?”
Ye Shuyan saw Xia Yuqing turning her head over and he seemed to think of something for a moment. Then he nodded: “En, okay.”
That being said, when Xia Yuqing turned her head back in excitement, Ye Shuyan still had a little worried look that he threw towards the little black cat in Cui Er’s arms. It was a warning look.
The little black cat “meowed” knowingly, and was taken into Xia Yuqing’s arms very obediently. It rubbed against Xia Yuqing’s arms, in a gesture of enjoyment.
“Meow…” Xiao Qing Er finally held it in her arms. It dreamily meowed…
“Oh, its eyes are different colours!” Xia Yuqing took the little black cat into her arms. Looking closer, the cat’s eyes turned out to be one blue, one green. It had double-colour pupils.
“It turns out that you are a n.o.ble Persian cat.”
“Persian cat?” Cui Er and Ye Shuyan were taken aback and asked with some surprise.
Xia Yuqing only then remembered that the term Persian cat had never appeared at this time, so she laughed and said vaguely: “It is a breed of cat. The biggest feature is that one eye is blue and one eye is green.”
Xia Yuqing spoke as she touched the hair of the little black cat and muttered: “But this should be a hybrid breed. Isn’t a Persian cat normally white? Why is it black?”
Cui Er glanced at the cat in Xia Yuqing’s arms and found that it was true. Her heart was a little surprised: “It’s true, Niang Niang, you are really amazing!”
“…” In modern times, this is actually just common sense! There is nothing to praise!
Xia Yuqing gave a smile with a guilty conscience, she didn’t know how to respond. Then, she felt her cheeks wet. She turned her head in surprise and saw that the little black cat had left her arms at some time and jumped onto her shoulders. It stuck out its pink little tongue and licked her cheek little by little.
“It seems that Mimi likes Niang Niang very much.”
Xia Yuqing nodded happily, then as if she had discovered something, she wondered: “Mimi? Is it a girl?”
Ye Shuyan didn’t expect Xia Yuqing would ask this. Stunned, he replied: “No, it’s a male.”
“…” A male cat called Mimi, how thought-provoking is that?!
Ye Shuyan seemed to see Xia Yuqing’s entanglement, and asked in a low voice: “Niang Niang doesn’t like this name?”
“…It’s not that I don’t like it, but I think it’s a little bit much for a male cat to be called this name…” She can’t bear to look straight!
Ye Shuyan thought for a while, then looking at the little black cat who was lying on Xia Yuqing’s shoulders focused on selling his cuteness, he smiled: “Then how about Niang Niang give it another name.”
“Is that okay?” Xia Yuqing was taken aback. She glanced at the little black cat on her shoulder, and then at the cat owner expectantly.
Hearing this, the little black cat turned his head hurriedly, looking at Ye Shuyan.
Ye Shuyan looked at the two identical big eyes and couldn’t help laughing: “Of course.”
One cat and one person looked at each other, completely stirred up. Xia Yuqing hurriedly picked up the little black cat from her shoulders. She looked at the little black cat’s double-colour pupils looking at her with antic.i.p.ation. She hesitated. What should she call it? Little Green, Little Blue, or…
“Seeing your black hair, how about Xiao Hei.” (Hei = black)
Cui Er seemed to expect Xia Yuqing to say something astonis.h.i.+ng. She shook her head helplessly. Niang Niang, can your name be more unreliable?
Compared with the helplessness of Cui Er and Ye Shuyan, Xiao Hei seemed to like the name Xia Yuqing gave to itself. It happily approached Xia Yuqing’s face, stretched out her small tongue, and ate her tofu (take advantage) contentedly. No matter how one looked at it, it seemed to be trying to please Xia Yuqing.
“Look, it seems to like the name very much. Look, it’s so happy!” Xia Yuqing didn’t notice any abnormality in the atmosphere and looked at the cute little black cat.
“…” Niang Niang, I’m afraid it’s not the name that’s making it happy, but it eating your tofu so openly!
Cui Er looked helplessly at Xia Yuqing who had no knowledge she was being taken advantage of and sighed in her heart. If the emperor knew that the empress was licked by a cat, knowing the emperor’s temperament, she really didn’t know what would happen.
Thinking about it this way, Cui Er was already a little worried for everyone in the prince’s mansion. It was commonplace for her Niang Niang to bring disaster to the little fish in the pond, this was nothing out of the ordinary. Cui Er suddenly understood the mood of Lu Rui, who had been with Xia Yuqing, experiencing the ups and downs, alas…
“Has this cat seen me before? Why do I feel that it seems familiar to me, not scared at all.” Xia Yuqing teased Xiao Hei, speaking surprisingly.
Ye Shuyan and Xiao Hei froze at the same time, a small light flashed in their eyes, but they quickly hid it in the bottom of their eyes again.
“It shouldn’t be. Xiao Hei has been with me since I was a child, and has never left the clan. This is the first time he had set foot in a different place.” Ye Shuyan looked at Xia Yuqing’s profile and smiled slightly: “Maybe you guys just hit it off.”
“Oh, that must be it.” Xia Yuqing nodded without suspicion. She looked at Xiao Hei in her arms. Suddenly she missed Xiao Bai, who was far away in Ye Kingdom’s imperial palace. How is Xiao Bai, did he ever miss her? Not having seen him for so long, she seemed to miss him a bit!
At the same time, far away in Ye Kingdom’s palace, Xiao Bai, who was deeply missed by Xia Yuqing, sneezed. In his heart: which beast is talking about this master?
Stretching under the warm sun, the background behind Xiao Bai changed. It turned from a s.h.i.+ning sun to a cold wind pa.s.sing by, with bleak and desolate leaves flying.
*** You are reading on https://webnovelonline.com ***
Oh, it’s been so long and owner hasn’t come back. Is there other new pets outside and she doesn’t want Xiao Bai? Xiao Bai is so pitiful, no one loves it, no one will treasure it. When the owner returns with a new pet, Xiao Bai can only be like the maidens in the harem who have been beaten to the cold palace to stay alone forever. Or he might even be swept out by owner to live on the streets and can’t eat enough!
“Tsk tsk tsk, I didn’t expect King Ye to one day encounter such a devastating day, I really am happy!” Xia Mingyuan was very happy and gloating in his pain, when he was slapped into the corner by his wife.
Liu Yixiang looked worried as she stared in the direction where the two of them were leaving, and sighed: “Oh, Qing Jiejie will be miserable now, the death penalty can be avoided, but she will inevitably have a big punishment!” Her Royal cousin was very angry and the consequences would certainly be very serious!
“Mother, don’t patronize others. When will you give birth to a sister for me and my brother with my Father? If this continues, we are going to be left behind!” Xia Yuze interjected recklessly, inevitably suffering a slap on the face.
“For adult matters, children should not interrupt. Go eat your meal.”
Cui Er, who silently witnessed everything helplessly rubbed her forehead, she knew it would become like this!
Thinking like this, Cui Er couldn’t help but s.h.i.+ft her gaze to the culprit who caused the dispute not far away, but she saw that Ye Shuyan was not moved by it at all. He only smiled and looked at Xiao Hei who was angry at being thrown into his arms.
Like Cui Er, there was also Shao Zitang who was calm on the other side who was paying attention to Ye Shuyan. Ye Shuyan seemed to notice Shao Zitang’s probing gaze. He looked up at him and then returned a faint smile.
Shao Zitang was stunned by his smile. When he returned to his senses, Ye Shuyan had already lowered his head again. After such a look, Shao Zitang’s eyes on Ye Shuyan became more and more complicated.
On the other side, Xia Yuqing was dragged back to their room by Feng Tingye.
As soon as he let go, Xia Yuqing hugged the bedpost next to the bed. She had an on guard look: “Don’t come here. Let me tell you, it’s enough to be tossed around for so long last night. Tonight, no matter what, I won’t… do that with you!”
Feng Tingye looked condescendingly at Xia Yuqing, who had already begun to act shamelessly with a faint smile: “What does Ai Fei think I want to do? Oh, that…. It turns out Ai Fei still wants it. Zhen was thinking that Ai Fei was really tired today and Zhen also wanted to be considerate of Zhen’s Ai Fei once. Anyways, you and Zhen still have many days together and there will be many opportunities. Who knew that Ai Fei would be so impatient. No matter. Since it is the wish of Ai Fei, tonight…”
“!” Xia Yuqing was shocked when she heard this. Could it be that she misunderstood? The Ultra Seme Lord doesn’t mean that? Isn’t this counterproductive to her?
Thinking about this, Xia Yuqing hurriedly called out a halt: “Wait…wait a minute!”
Xia Yuqing shrank back, still defensively saying: “If you didn’t want to do that kind of thing, then why did you take me here? I haven’t eaten yet! Besides, there are guests here. It’s really rude for you to do this…, oh, what are you doing?!”
Xia Yuqing hadn’t finished her words yet when Feng Tingye leaned towards the bedpost Xia Yuqing was holding with one hand. He looked at Xia Yuqing with piercing eyes: “Guest? What guest? That is clearly a wolf that eats people and does not spit out the bones. In the future, stay away from him for Zhen!”
“What, Xiao Shuyan is so cute and beautiful, how could he be a bad guy? Don’t treat a gentleman like a villain! Are you jealous?”
“Zhen is jealous of him?” Feng Tingye acted as if he heard a big joke, “Zhen needs to be jealous of him? Also, he is so cute and beautiful, how could he be a bad guy? Have you forgotten the Eldest Princess and your Fourth Royal Brother? Are they unsightly? Were they not bad guys? Do you not remember at all?”
Xia Yuqing was taken aback: “How is this related to my Fourth Royal Brother?”
Feng Tingye was startled, surprised that he was furious and let it slip. He pursed his lips, “Don’t divert the topic. Nowadays, the better looking the person, the more likely they are to be bad people. You’d better keep this in mind.”
“The better looking the person, the more likely they are to be bad people?” Xia Yuqing nodded without understanding, “Your Majesty, are you talking about yourself again?”
Feng Tingye was startled, he flew an eye knife towards Xia Yuqing.
Xia Yuqing noticed and failed to speak. She hurriedly stuck out her tongue, and changed the subject: “I don’t care, Xiao Shuyan must not be a bad person anyway, that’s what my intuition says.”
Feng Tingye raised his eyebrows and sneered: “Your intuition? Your intuition has always been inaccurate. Tomorrow I will have someone throw that person out of the house, together with… the cat!”
“…” Ultra Seme Lord, are you jealous of a cat? Xia Yuqing paused for a moment after realizing this. She looked at Feng Tingye’s face that didn’t seem like he was saying a joke, then she had a small face, filled with righteous indignation: “You can’t do this!”
“Watch if I can do this. ”
“You are using your power for oppression, this is tyranny… Mmm…” Xia Yuqing was about to protest, but Feng Tingye took advantage of it, and blocked her mouth, then pressed her into the bed cleanly.
“You just said you wouldn’t do that a moment ago!” Xia Yuqing used her short legs to struggle.
“A moment ago is a moment ago, now is now. Earlier it was for fun, now it’s punishment.”
“Mm, you…” Unruly lying b*stard!
Therefore, Xia Yuqing once again witnessed Feng Tingye’s rogueness and understood the iron rule that Feng Tingye’s words were like fart. He would say one thing and do another. To the her who believed in what a big beast would say, was she courting disaster or was she courting disaster? !
Compared with Xia Yuqing’s heat waves, spring air filling the garden, the atmosphere on the other side was the opposite. It was cold and depressing.
The full moon hung high, the cool evening breeze that was about to enter blew over the potted plants in the courtyard, making bleak voices. Coupled with the low cat cry, it made people feel their hair standing up tall.
Ye Shuyan glanced at Shao Zitang, who had been waiting for him in the courtyard early on, and paused before calling out, “Master Shao.”
Hearing the movement, Shao Zitang turned and stared at Ye Shuyan’s face. Straight to the point, he asked: “Who are you, and what is your purpose?”
Ye Shuyan seemed to have expected that Shao Zitang would ask this. The corners of his lips hooked upwards. He stroked Xiao Hei in his arms. Step by step, he walked towards Shao Zitang.
He stopped walking when he was side by side with Shao Zitang, the smile on his face remained the same, but the pressure on his body changed in an instant: “You don’t need to know who I am, Shao Gongzi. It is also unnecessary for you to know the purpose of me coming. Shao Gongzi only needs to know that I will never hurt the Empress or the people that the Empress cares about.”
“You…” Shao Zi Tang was taken aback. Trying to turn around and grab Ye Shuyan who was about to pa.s.s him, he was surprised to find that his body… can’t move at all? !
It wasn’t until Ye Shuyan stepped out of the gate of Shao Zitang’s back courtyard that Shao Zitang felt his stiff body loosen. He turned around, widening his eyes to look in the direction where Ye Shuyan was leaving.
After a long while, Shao Zitang’s lips were slightly pressed. The hands hanging beside him were also tightly clasped. Perhaps, this time they really provoked an incredible person.
Soon after Ye Shuyan stepped out of the courtyard, there was a sudden pause of his feet. His eyes raised slightly: “Come out, Bi Xuan.”
Before the words were over, a figure had swept out from the side and walked slowly towards Ye Shuyan. The cold moonlight casted itself on the figure, reflecting a familiar face, it was Cui Er who had been by Xia Yuqing’s side.
Cui Er looked directly at Ye Shuyan, her lips moved slightly, and she said a word clearly and firmly.
“You made a mistake. Bi Xuan is dead. I am just Cui Er, Lord.”
