Chapter 181.3: Fainted For No Reason
Upon the mattress, the young lady lay with her hands crossed over her abdomen. She looked like she was peacefully asleep and there was even a faint smile at the ends of her lips, seeming to be having a nice dream. If one were to disregard her unusually pale complexion, they might really think that she was just sleeping.
Lou Jun Yao’s gaze turned dark as he walked over to the side of the bed. His footsteps were rather heavy but the young lady did not seem to have noticed anything. She was usually highly alert and her senses sharp, able to maintain a certain level of consciousness at all times, never sleeping so deeply like this.
She was only wearing a thin inner robe under the blanket but in those circumstances, modesty wasn’t really that big a priority in their minds.
Lou Jun Yao pulled the blanket a little lower, and pressed his finger against the young lady’s neck. It was icy cold to the touch and his face creased up. He then checked her hand and it was just as chilly.
“What’s wrong with the little lass?” Bai Zhi Yan asked as he walked in and saw the ominous look on Lou Jun Yao’s face.
Lou Jun Yao made way for the man, his brows furrowed as he said: “Have a look at her. I am unable to….. feel any pulse.”
Hearing that, Bai Zhi Yan immediately shed away his languid demeanor and went to sit down by the bed. His placed his fingers on the young lady’s wrist and sent his consciousness out to probe deeper. It was as if he had gone into lands filled with ice and snow, where everything was blindingly white, unable to detect any signs of life.
“The lass…..” Bai Zhi Yan’s eyes widened in shock. “Her body is completely frozen inside!”
Lou Jun Yao’s eyes sank. “How did it happen?”
“I do not know. But judging from the extent of the freeze that has overtaken her body, it must have been eight hours at least. I think even she had not noticed it herself, or the expression on her face would not look so peaceful. It had probably started while she was in her dreams and it struck her so fast and hard that she did not notice a single thing. If she does not wake up within these twenty fours, then I fear she will never ever wake up again.” Bai Zhi Yan said worriedly, his heart heavy.
Seeing Lou Jun Yao silent without a single word coming out from him and feeling the low oppressive aura emanating from his body, Bai Zhi Yan hesitated a moment before he decided to still say it: “But we do not even know what the cause of it is at all, so I really do not know how to deal with this at all.”
Just as the air was growing more oppressive, a faint golden glow suddenly appeared around Qing Yu’s body, like it was trapped inside and was struggling very hard to break out. The golden glow then grew stronger and more intense, before surging out from her body, to form up into the shape of a human figure.
Golden haired and dressed in gold, an outstandingly handsome tall youth suddenly appeared in the room. The other two men looked at him warily, and Lou Jun Yao’s eyes glinted sharply, like something was surging and stirring up inside.
The murder in his eyes was clear to see, so how could Zang Mai possibly not notice it. He immediately opened his mouth to proclaim: “Let me say I’m a friend and not a foe, before I come to be harmed by mistake.”
[Although he has already regained his powers to its previous peak, the man right before him looks like he had some depth as well. Moreover, he is a friend of the Mistress’, so he really did not want to get into a fight here.]
