Chapter 215.1: Love: Comes Rushing in, Too Fast to Nip in the Bud
— The Barbarian Tribe —
Qing Lan Fei remained in the forbidden chambers for a good half month, watching the man lying ill upon the bed everyday. But besides his breathing normally, the man did not show any signs of regaining consciousness.
Sometimes while she watched the man lying there motionless, she would feel an unspeakable kind of bitterness but she would not give up on waiting for him. She had afterall pulled through these few hundred years already and she was still alive, able to see the person she loves which was most fortunate.
“Big Sis Fei?”
The heavy stone doors of the forbidden chambers opened slightly and a tiny head poked inside, two adorable plaits hanging down the sides. Her large vivid eyes were highly lively and her pretty and delicate little face was lovable and cute.
Qing Lan Fei raised her eyes up when she heard that voice, and she said in surprise: “Ah Yue, why have you come?”
The young little girl mischievously held a finger over her lips and shushed softly. She then gazed around her for a while before she squeezed her petite little body through the small opening in the door.
Qing Lan Fei watched on with puzzlement at the girl’s furtive movements. “You are…..”
Ah Yue trotted over to her in a few steps and as she came close, she said mysteriously: “I put the guard outside to sleep so Big Sis must hurry up and leave with me now. I waited so long till the Chieftain went out today. He is not here in the tribe now and even if he discovers it when he comes back, you would have left for Heavens know how long already.”
Qing Lan Fei was taken aback. “To go where?”
“To leave the Barbarian Tribe! Your presence here has been discovered by the Chieftain and although I do not know why the Chieftain did not decide to execute you, but the Barbarian Tribe detests all outsiders so you will not be spared.” Ah Yue said with a worried face. “It took me so much effort to save you and I really do not wish for you to be killed.”
“Foolish girl.” Qing Lan Fei shook her head helplessly. “I know that you mean well but I will not leave. Moreover, your Chieftain will not make any moves against me so you can set your mind at ease.”
“Why is that?” Ah Yue’s eyes widened in amazement, not understanding why. “The Chieftain emphasizes on the tribe’s rules very strongly, so how could he possibly allow an outsider like you to continue to remain among us?”
“To tell you the truth, I am actually an old acquaintance of your Chieftain and so he will not do me any harm.” Qing Lan Fei explained in a gentle voice. “You had better leave quickly before the guard outside wakes up. Do not let anyone see you or you will be scolded by your grandfather again.”
Ah Yue knitted up her brows in incomprehension and continued to ask: “But why are you unwilling to leave?”
Qing Lan Fei curved up the corners of her lips, the expression on her face gentle. Her gaze turned sharp as she turned to look at the man on the bed and she said in a soft voice: “Because of him.”
