Lu Ji followed the source of the voice and just as she expected, she saw those flamboyant red clothes on the man with a devilishly handsome face come striding towards them, with Lian Ji trailing right behind.
Who else could that be besides her lord in waiting, Bai Zhi Yan?
And before she could even open her mouth to say anything, she saw Bai Zhi Yan walk right pass her, straight towards the young lady in a white dress who had a faint smile hanging from her lips, and a lazy expression of indifference on her face. He immediately held the young lady by her hand and started looking her up and down with a measuring gaze.
Lu Ji’s face was a little astounded. [Her lord is acquainted with this young lady?]
Qing Yu pulled back hand back with a speechless look on her face. “What are you looking for?”
“Have you forgotten that you’re a patient now? Why are you running all over the place? In the short period of time that I went to brew the herbs, I came back to find you’ve already gone missing. I was so afraid that you might have been abducted!”
Bai Zhi Yan glared fiercely at her and said indignantly: “What a troublesome little lass.”
The corner of Qing Yu’s mouth twitched. “I’m all recovered. Do you still need to watch me so closely all the time? And that brew you make….. Are you purposely playing a trick on me? I am not going to drink that.”
Bai Zhi Yan laughed out loud from exasperation. “This lass….. You must have run away because you’re afraid of taking your medicine! Don’t think just because Lou Jun Yao was not around the past couple of days, nobody can control you. He will be coming back tomorrow and if he knows that you have not been taking your medicine, he will surely make you drink twice the amount!”
Qing Yu’s voice was tinged with a threatening tone. “Try to tattle on me if you dare!”
“Will I even need to be a tattletale? He will know once he sees the state of your wounds when he comes back!” Bai Zhi Yan retorted with a smirk.
Qing Yu had nothing to say to that. “…..” She suddenly felt as if her life was not worth living anymore.
She wished that she had remained unconscious and didn’t wake up from her injuries.
Seeing that she was not saying anything, Bai Zhi Yan stopped his criticism of the young lady. He had not really paid attention to the situation when he saw her just now, but he was finally realizing that something didn’t look right.
[The people around them seem to be rather aggressive. What’s happening? Here to find trouble?]
He immediately turned to give Lu Ji beside him a quizzical gaze.
Lu Ji opened her mouth to explain: “He was probably attracted by this young lady’s beauty and intentionally sought trouble with her so he can forcibly take her away.”
Bai Zhi Yan was taken aback a moment, not having heard it clearly and he went on to ask: “Who did you say he wanted to take away?”
Lu Ji gestured with her eyes, indicating that it was the young lady beside Bai Zhi Yan.
Bai Zhi Yan burst out laughing and his eyes beautiful as plum blossoms blinked, before he turned his gaze onto Qing Yu. “You’re in such a good mood today? Already about to be forcibly taken out from here and you’ve not done a thing?”
