Realms In The Firmament - Chapter 57
Chapter 57 - A Silly Young Man's Therapy
During his two lives, he had not even held a girl's arms, yet this time, he had skipped that part and had jumped straight to touching a girl's belly...
How had things ended up this way? The feeling on his hand was extremely pleasant... He was feeling the warmth, the smoothness, the breathing, and the pulsing Jing and Mai of a girl's body...
Ye Xiao was totally flustered at this moment. Did it mean that that the treatment he had proposed was akin to lifting a stone and smashing it on his own toes?!
He forcibly kept operating his martial arts and used the intense heat of the East-rising Purple Qi to absorb the cold qi in Wen-Ren Chu-Chu's body as her martial arts continued to operate.
The East-rising Purple Qi was indeed an extraordinary martial art which belonged in the legends. It had already started to take effect. As he continued to operate the qi, he felt a string of the cold qi gather in his palm. He became encouraged by this and decided to speed up the pace of his operation. As for now, his mind was clear and he could finally concentrate.
The two of them were bonded by their bodies and their spirits were connected. They surely knew about each other's condition. Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was able to notice all the changes happening inside Ye Xiao. He sat still, but the heat continuously entered her body. She felt more and more comfortable, it was as if she was bathing in a hot spring. She just wanted to fall asleep that way.
But, she didn't dare show any carelessness.
She had come to know the astounding effect of Ye Xiao's martial art. She operated her spiritual consciousness and was surprised to discover that the rooted cyan streams of cold qi, which represented her death, were being dispelled bit by bit inside her dantian. As the shadow of death that had been hovering inside her head gradually disappeared, she suddenly experienced a feeling of elation.
It was not entirely because of the disappearing shade of death or the possiblity of a clear path of cultivation in her future that made her feel happy.
It was because... this guy was curing her with all his heart which made her actually feel 'a sense of belonging'. It was a feeling that she had never felt before;unfamiliar, yet enjoyable...
She sighed in her mind and stopped the vision of her spiritual consciousness. She slightly turned her head and quietly gazed at the side of Ye Xiao's face.
[This guy is not really that good-looking... and he is a bit old... but he looks so charming when he is working seriously.
And he gives me a sense of safety which extends to the bottom of my heart.
And... a few moments before, when he was panicking and didn't know what to do... he looked so cute...
He must be a guy who has experienced everything except for relations between a man and woman!
Even if he is cunning enough to rule the whole world, when he faces a girl, he is only a silly young man...]
While thinking of that, she felt something soft arise in her heart.
She looked at Ye Xiao's motionless face and she actually got lost in thought.
Initially, if the therapy had really worked, she had planned for him to acquire the Regeneration Jade Lotus to cure her master and kill him afterwards, since he had disgraced her.
It seemed ungrateful to do so, but she didn't have a choice in order to protect her own reputation!
However, now that she was gazing at his face, she understood one thing: [Even if that day comes, I probably couldn't do it.]
She realized that... the gap between them was huge...
[Although he is a supreme dan-maker, he is a dan-maker of the mortal world;he is a man of the martial world.
And for me, after solving the problems of father and master, I have to go back after all...
Even if I were not the inheritor of an elite sect of the Qing-Yun Realm, I... am the princess of a kingdom after all... How can I...]
Thinking of that, she felt sad and couldn't help sighing.
If Ye Xiao turned around, he would have discovered that the girl was now wearing a weird expression. He would have also notice that the girl was actually fully dressed.
She had only cut a circular hole on the part of her clothes covering her dantian and only a small part of her belly was exposed.
However, that was the furthest she was willing to go... She was a virgin after all. It was not easy for her to reveal the skin of her belly even in such circumstances.
It could be summarised as such: If she hadn't been so eager to cure her dying master and to test the feasibility of Ye Xiao's solution, she wouldn't have let any guy touch her body, even if she were to die!
In fact, at the beginning, she was still really hesitant.
However, after feeling the Purple Sky-fire warm her body and comfort her mind, she felt happy, and this happiness brought along both fear and confusion at the same time...
Time passed slowly, bit by bit...
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu was a perceptive girl. She clearly felt that her energy was getting purer and purer as the impact of the cold qi was dispersing bit by bit. The breath of the man became heavier at the same time.
He was obviously tired...
[In such position, reaching his hand behind his back to my belly, he keeps operating his martial art for such a long time with no breaks. How could he not be tired?]
Thinking about that, Wen-Ren Chu-Chu moved her body quietly so as to make Ye Xiao operate in a position that wouldn't be that difficult for him...
She even showed a shy smile on the corners of her mouth.
[Nerd... He probably thinks that I am an ugly girl. Humph... If I reveal my true face, I promise you will be enchanted immediately, nerd!
But... Can I show him... my true face?]
While collecting her thoughts, Wen-Ren Chu-Chu felt shy for a moment, perplexed for a moment, sad for a moment, helpless for a moment, and like she was in a dream for a moment...
She was a girl who had learnt battle tactics her entire life;she started cultivating when she was about five and she learned to command the army when she was about seven;when she turned thirteen, she had adventured in the Qing-Yun Realm...
This kind of emotion was something she never had experienced before.
Neither she nor Ye Xiao, whose EQ was zero, knew that it was something every young girl would eventually experience. There was no woman who had not.
Later, after Ye Xiao confirmed for the third time that the cold qi inside Wen-Ren Chu-Chu's body had been completely eradicated and nothing remained in her dantian that he could draw out, he finally stopped the operation.
Before he opened his eyes, he heard Wen-Ren Chu-Chu's voice, ’’Is it done?’’
They had been spiritually connected during the therapy, so he wasn't surprised that she could notice all of his movements. But what surprised him the most was the tone of her voice. It was unprecedentedly soft and gentle. It was a different kind of gentle, something unlike the one she used in the earlier conversation. The earlier one was on purpose while the present one was from the bottom of her heart.
Ye Xiao nodded and said, ’’Done.’’
And then the bed shook;Wen-Ren Chu-Chu had already left. Ye Xiao composed himself before turning around. He could still feel the heat that remained in his hand, leaving behind an aftertaste.
He saw her standing in front of the window, tidying up her clothes.
Her cyan robe, as well as her hair was being buffeted by the wind. Her tall and slim body looked especially attractive under the lights of the setting sun.
’’This woman is slow in taking off clothes, but fast in putting them back on.’’ Ye Xiao murmured in mind.
The silly man didn't know that the girl had never undressed at all.
At the moment, she had merely put on a robe and had covered everything with it.
’’Brother Feng, I now believe that you really have the capability.’’ Wen-Ren Chu-Chu looked outside of the window and spoke gently, ’’But... I wonder if you will come with me to the Kingdom of Lan-Feng to cure my master?’’
’’Absolutely not. We have a deal. I helped you with your illness and proved my capability. You shouldn't interfere with my freedom.’’ Ye Xiao answered decisively, ’’However, I could cure your master. But first, she needs to come to the Kingdom of Chen.’’
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu sighed.
She didn't even try to force his hand.
That was surprising for Ye Xiao.
In Ye Xiao's mind, even though he had helped her with her problem, she might still decide to not keep her promise about setting him free. She should have at least bargained with him. He had spoken decisively because he was trying to take the initiative for the inevitable bargain which was to follow. However, he was left surprised that the girl had actually allowed him to leave without any conditions!
’’Just... The Regeneration Ink Lotus... How do I raise it? Is it really possible to turned it into the Regeneration Jade Lotus in a short time?’’ Wen-Ren Chu-Chu asked.
Ye Xiao could barely believe his ears. [Is she still the forceful Wen-Ren Chu-Chu? The question is an interrogative sentence, but why does it sound so soft?]
’’I have solved your problem just now. Isn't it the best proof of my capability? If you can trust me, give me the lotus.’’ Ye Xiao spoke without mincing his words, ’’In your hands, to be honest, it will be a waste. Such an item can only be effective in the hands of someone great like me! Only I can unlock its true potential!’’
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu didn't turn around;she nodded slowly instead.
’’Then when I come back next time, how do I find you? Should we establish a means of communication?’’ She asked with a low voice.
’’There is no need to bother. When you come, you will find me for sure.’’ Ye Xiao said, ’’I believe that even if I hide, you will have your own way of finding me.’’
Wen-Ren Chu-Chu nodded again.
That was right. In the world, there were not many people that could escape from the surveillance of Wen-Ren Chu-Chu.
As of now, Wen-Ren Chu-Chu could clearly feel that the qi inside her body was flowing at an unprecedentedly active condition. She even had a feeling that she could enter the highest grade in this world - the Grade of Tianyuan any time she wanted!
In fact, she felt that she could do more. Perhaps, she only needed one third of the time she had estimated to reach the Grandmaster levels of Tianyuan!
It was something she had been dreaming about. She had gained such an advantage now and she was closer to her dream, but she actually didn't feel much pleasure;instead, she was filled with an indescribable disconsolation...
