Chapter 245.3: Teasing Ridicule
“Is that really the truth?” Yue Fen’s brows furrowed together as he looked at her with suspicion in his eyes.
Qing Yu arched up an eyebrow as she glanced at the man: “If I was really trying to run away, do you think that you will be able to stare at me like this now?”
Yue Fen was stumped by her words and his lips turned stiff as he clamped his mouth shut, deciding not to probe any further. Looking at all the people still kneeling around him, an impatient glint flashed across his eyes and he then waved his hand dismissively at them. “All of you are dismissed!”
Everyone was surprised to hear that. [Have they all….. just escaped from the jaws of death?]
Everyone suddenly came back to their senses and glanced gratefully at Qing Yu, before they quickly scrambled away from there.
Yue Fen did not leave, his gaze fixed upon the young lady as she slowly made her way inside, like she did not see him at all, dawdling as she climbed up onto the bed of clouds.
“What are you doing?” Yue Fen asked in a cold unfeeling voice.
“It’s already so late into the night, what else will I be doing if not to sleep?”
Qing Yu rolled her eyes in speechlessness. Seeing that the man was still standing stock still in his spot without moving an inch, her eyes glinted mischievously for a moment and she rested her chin lazily in her palm to look at him with a faint smile on her lips, her head slightly tilted to one side.
“To have Lord Yue Fen suddenly being so concerned about me and not choosing to go rest even though it’s so late, together with the fact that you mobilized so many people to search for me earlier, could you really have….. feelings for me?”
With her already seductively beautiful countenance, and with that face intentionally teasingly sultry at that moment, any man would probably not be able to stop themselves from being seduced by her.
Yue Fen had been here in the Divine Temple for several hundred years, and it was not as if he had never met women before. But he had really never met a woman who was as bold and acted as maddeningly frivolous as Qing Yu, who could not only completely disregard his stern and stoically stone cold face, but even have the audacity to make fun of him.
Seeing the man’s face turn a rather dark and ugly shade, Qing Yu then feigned a surprised look by blinking her eyes. “Oops, did I really get it right? Are you really…..”
It was probably because she had teased him too much already, when the ever expressionless and stone faced Yue Fen was seen to ramble on in a tirade for the very first time. “You are a woman that cannot be any more shameless. You think with your looks….”
He was just about to ridicule Qing Yu by saying that she was not good looking enough and was not qualified to make him want to look at her, but when he was faced with the young lady’s exquisite and absolutely flawless face, he suddenly found himself at a loss for words.
And Qing Yu just had to stare straight into his eyes teasingly. “Hmm? What were you going to say about me?”
Yue Fen seemed to be gritting his teeth in silence but he did not say anything more. It was only when he turned himself around to leave that he said in an emotionless voice: “You have better not get any more funny ideas in your head. If you do not want those people to die because of you, you’d better learn to know your place. The Temple Lord has given instructions for you to go serve at the Priest’s Hall.”
Upon saying that, he left without turning his head back.
