The Mad and Cool Female Lord - 37
When she opened her eyes again, Su Yanxi had already been transported into the ancient wuxia plane.
What greeted her eyes were fine golden-wheat coloured gauze curtains. Inside the room, it was full of the simple yet elegant smell of the incense. The brilliant sunlight pierced through the patterned window, having passed through the branches of the Chinese tallow trees, into the room. The light shone onto the floor in shapes broken into smaller pieces.
On the bed, she had some difficulty propping herself halfway up. Dainty hands stroked her chest as she softly panted, her heart palpitating for a bit due to this movement. Gentle and delicate black eyes were filled with a layer of watery mist, making her look even more pitiful to others.
For goodness sake, how in the world did the seniors use this body and endure until the end of the plot? _(:3)∠)_
Su Yanxi lightly grasped the curtain. She leaned on the head of the bed until the dizziness that appeared out of the blue faded. She couldn’t help but sincerely admire from the bottom of her heart the seniors who dedicated themselves to the job.
One had to know that they did not have any golden fingers able to instantly make their bodies better. To be able to endure with this kind of body and go against the Mary Sue female lead, was not something easily done! They are all strong ah!
【You, that is because the female side character was sick recently. Her immunity is naturally weaker. Normally, she is just slightly more delicate than others and it would not hinder her actions.】007 floated over and comforted.
Su Yanxi’s pair of sharp watery bright eyes charmingly looked at it accusingly as she roasted. “As if weakened by! A! Slight! Bit! I sincerely feel that right now, I could totally be directly transported back.”
After a melancholic sigh, she looked left and right, and did not find hair nor hide of the servant girl. She then rubbed her temples, drew open the curtains, and put on a pair of embroidered shoes to stand up.
Su Yanxi looked at the beauty in the bronze mirror.
The young girl wore a set of light pink gauze clothing. Her black hair, snowy skin, lithe-looking muscles, elegant frame truly was dazzling like a pearl and brilliant like fine jade. That pair of sharp, watery and bright eyes were even more gentle, delicate and charming. When they looked at people, it was as if they were always filled with autumn waters1, gentle and melancholic like a light mist, making one feel pity when one sees them.
The only blemish on this perfect person was that because the young girl’s skin lacked a layer of color; they seemed wan. Yet it made her seem even more like a frail and sickly beauty2, gentle like jade and soft like flowers, giving one a strong desire to protect her.
Now Su Yanxi finally understood why the female lead was so dead set against this fiancée at that time.
Other than the fact that the fiancée truly looked too much like an immortal fairy, for a man that she had acted ambiguously with to have involvement with other women, she as the Mary Sue female lead would naturally be unable to endure it at all.
However understanding it is merely just understanding it, the revenge that she needed to execute, she would naturally not miss a single one of them. The young girl’s pale slender finger slowly stroked the face inside the mirror that despite being somewhat blurry, was unable to hide her good looks. She felt that the anxiousness inside her heart from the original body suddenly, as if in sync with the combination of their bodies——
If she truly had no method of removing Mu Shengyan’s Mary Sue aura, since that is the case, how about she……
Just let Mu Shengyan fall in love with her. Then let her desire for, but not obtain it. With this, she would have retaliated against her and those men that loved Mu Shengyan dearly.
Immediately, 007 sensitively detected that Su Yanxi was acting strange. It couldn’t help bouncing over and exerted itself to run into her face.【Hey, be more careful. Don’t be influenced by the original body’s feelings!】
Su Yanxi suddenly shook herself, regaining her consciousness. Before her eyes was a plain of dizziness. She massaged her temples and confusedly asked. “Just now……what happened to me?”
【To begin with, this fiancée is scheming with deep thoughts, unable to be seen through. Furthermore, there are the faint remnants of her resentment and hatred. If you are not careful, there is a possibility that you would be influenced by those dark feelings and be swallowed by that darkness.】Cloud 007’s face was solemn as it explained. Then, seeing Su Yanxi turn somewhat afraid thinking of what had just happened, it comforted【It was my mistake, to not have thought of this aspect. But relax, after I remove the remains of the original body’s thoughts and influence, there would be no more problems.】
007 moved as it helplessly thought: it was not even it that was careless, the main reason being……none of the seniors would be influenced by this tiny bit of dark feelings. That’s why they did not make a note about this matter in the manual ah. _(:3)∠)_
Say, after it and Su Su become famous, would they also be able to write a book about how its host, simple-minded and without a hint of darkness, completed the missions?
One has to know that the higher the difficulty of a plane, the harder the female lead would be to deal with; and the more powerful the female lead was, the harder the mission would be. So its family’s Su Su completely found a new path, creating a new method of attacking ah, hahaha! ヾ(^▽^*)))
——Obviously, 007 had long forgotten about the matter of how it had previously rejected this method, fully feeling proud due to its partner. →_→
“Aiya.” The door was gently pushed open.
As soon as the green-clothed servant girl who came in carrying the medicine saw her lady sitting in front of the dressing table, she couldn’t help but turn dazed for a bit. After she returned to her senses, she immediately started making a big fuss about nothing. “My lady, why did you start sitting up? The doctor said that right now, what you need the most is to rest. You can’t get exposed to the wind!”
She placed the medicine on the side. Sounding like a broken record, she just wanted to support Su Yanxi back onto the bed.
Su Yanxi’s heart jumped from her sudden noisy actions. She hastily motioned for her to stop. Her face was pale as she managed to speak. “There is nothing serious, I merely felt that I had some energy and wanted to move around for a bit.”
Lu Yi’s eyebrows suddenly rose until it was vertical, her face was blaming as she said. “My lady, you are still ill, how can you be so wilful? My lady, if you still won’t listen, Lu Yi will have to call for Master and Madam3 to come here!”
Su Yanxi’s face was filled with helplessness. She could only be supported by Lu Yi back to lying down on the bed. Then, under her servicing, drank the medicine along with the candied fruit. She closed her eyes and pretended to sleep.
In the following half a month, because she accidentally made her illness worsen, Su Yanxi was under the constant “surveillance” of Lu Yi, who became extremely audacious by relying on the support of the Madam. She was always obediently lying on the bed, taking care of her body, unable to take a step outside the room’s door. There is no need to even mention going to see the female lead or those men.
Yet Su Yanxi was not the least bit anxious. She simply quietly waited.
She waited, waited for Mu Shengyan’s arrival.
Before that woman met her fiancée, she should have visited the Su Family once.
The original text that once unwittingly mentioned that when she entered Jianghu, she had, due to her lack of money, once secretly entered a household to secretly eat and walked off with something. In the aftermath, when she was going against the Su Family, she had displayed extreme familiarity with the Su Family’s structure.
Therefore, Su Yanxi had determined that the household that Mu Shengyan had once taken something from definitely was the Su Family.
However, though she was certain, Su Yanxi didn’t expect that her meeting with Mu Shengyan would arrive so quickly, so quickly that she was caught somewhat unprepared.
The evening that day, the radiant peach blossoms were in full bloom.
The whole sky was filled with pink petals fluttering, dancing in midair. The gorgeous sunlight poured down, as if for covering them in a fine hazy layer of blazing golden light.
In this gorgeous, romantic scene of the flower petals dancing, there was a girl playing the zither sitting below the peach blossom tree. She wore clothes made of fine pink gauze, passionately devoted as her delicate hands lightly plucked the strings. Her flesh was made of ice, her bones of jade4, her features picturesque. One could say she had the beauty of a fairy, graceful and lovely.
That girl with the pink gauze flying looked like a peach blossom spirit transformed into human, her features soft and filled with affection. The shine in her eyes was bright yet able to steal one’s heart and entrap one’s soul.
Her skin was whiter and more flawless than the purest of white jade, Her eyes were more graceful and radiant than the clearest crystal. Her gaze was more gentle and pure than the warmest nephrite jade. Her lips were more delicate and brighter than the most tender of rose petals.
The flower rain swirled, a flower spirit arrived in the world. Suddenly hazily fascinating the eyes of the lost Mu Shengyan who barged in.
After she hid herself behind the red-painted pillar, bright and spirited black eyes fixedly stared at this flower spirit under the peach blossom tree.
The desire to love beautiful things is natural to every person.
That’s why, even if Mu Shengyan was a woman, it would naturally not hinder her from admiring a beauty of the same gender.
The surrounding harmonious sounds suddenly stopped. The girl dressed in pink gauze slightly frowned. She used one hand to lightly stroke her chest. The gentle breeze blew past, her complexion seemed to turn more and more pale.
Mu Shengyan suddenly thought of that famous quote, ”Her two arched eyebrows, thick like clustered smoke, bore a certain, not very pronounced frowning wrinkle. She had a pair of eyes, which possessed a cheerful, yet one would say, a sad expression, overflowing with sentiment. Her face showed the marks of sorrow stamped on her two dimpled cheeks. She was beautiful, yet her whole frame was the prey of a hereditary disease.5“ Turns that this type of girl truly existed in this world, her waist fragile like how the willow bends in the wind6 that I see is just as pitiful, yet one is unable to be disgusted by it.
Then she saw that girl dressed in pink gauze lay her palms on the zither, using it to support her as she slowly stood up. She massaged her temples, her expression looked slightly tired, making her look even more delicate. Unexpectedly, her graceful figure walked towards her.
Not knowing for what reason, Mu Shenyan’s heart inexplicably felt somewhat panicked. She peeked left and right, her footsteps were light as she leaped up to the roof of a nearby building in one go.
The closer she was, the clearer she could see of the girl’s soul-stirring pallid little face that lacked blood yet was beautiful. Mu Shengyan held her breath, for fear that she would alarm her.
The accident happened very suddenly.
The beautiful eyebrows of the girl dressed in pink gauze knitted together. She did not know why she suddenly felt so uncomfortable as she lightly gasped for air. Then, she only saw the scenery rush by——eventually helplessly falling into the nearby pond!
Mu Shengyan’s heart inexplicably tightened. Practically in an instant, she subconsciously stretched out her hand.
The cool breeze blew past, innumerable pink petals swirled in midair, dancing, twirling, as if a heavenly maiden was throwing petals. They were fluttering and free.
In this unimaginably beautiful scene where the dancing petal covered the entire sky, a young girl dressed in blue embraced the girl dressed in pink gauze by the waist, spinning as they slowly floated down from midair.
The pink petals gradually covered the hair, the face, and the bodies of the two of them, then landed, completely covering the floor.
Gazing from the far distance, that scene was simply soul-stirringly beautiful.
“You, are you alright?” Seeing the panic and helplessness in the glistening eyes of the girl dressed in pink gauze, Mu Shengyan inexplicably felt somewhat nervous. She slightly tilted her head down, and couldn’t help but ask with a low voice in a somewhat awkward manner.
Su Yanxi’s hands were still tightly gripping to her clothes outside her collar. She raised her pale little face. That pair of delicate big eyes were currently filled with dependence as she gazed at her. It felt as if her gaze bore straight into her heart, making one unable to resist stepping forward to coax her, protect her, before they could be at ease.
She was definitely scared?
Mu Shengyan’s heart was suddenly an expanse of softness. She couldn’t help but feel tender affection.
“I, I’m fine……” As if she had suddenly discovered the position she was in right now, Su Yanxi flusteredly released her hands and stepped back slightly. Her small face blushed bright red as she said. “Many thanks to Miss for saving me. Otherwise, I might have fallen into the pond……”
Mu Shengyan feigned calmness as she lightly coughed twice. “It was nothing. I just so happened to be passing by. In the future, it would be better to be careful.”
“Just now, my heart just suddenly jumped……” Seemingly because she seemed to be blaming herself, Su Yanxi lightly bit her lips. Her watery eyes were tender and timid as she looked at the spirited and frank young girl dressed in blue. Her voice was tiny as she tried to explain herself.
That faint voice was like the guqin that she played, soft, smooth, and graceful, lightly stroking Mu Shengyan’s heart.
At that exact moment, her heartstrings were slightly tugged.
Mu Shengyan nearly fell into the depths of that pair of black eyes that seemed to be brimming with water yet hid an abyssal vortex. She couldn’t help being somewhat flustered as she hastily moved her sight away.
Another cool breeze swept by, she seemed to have smelled a faint scent, that seemed to not be lacking in refinement, surrounding her body. She couldn’t help subconsciously taking a light whiff again. When she was aware of her own rude actions, her face was slightly stiff. There was an awkwardness that had also suddenly flashed through the depths of her black eyes. Then, she ferociously rubbed her nose——
Clearly she did not mean to do so, yet each and every one of her actions was like bewitching and seducing others. This girl must definitely be a flower spirit turned human right?! The first attack: beauty that bewitches humans hhh. The second attack……um?【Hey!】
