Reborn Lady: Unparalleled Daughter of Concubine - Chapter 314
Chapter 314 Loving Moment
When Tuoba Wuyu finished his words, other soldiers showed extreme excitement. Although Qin Yunuan was also good-looking, she was a general’s wife. They could never dream about her. But this woman was even more charming than Qin Yunuan.
Leng Changxi glanced at the poor little woman before him coldly and nodded, “Now that General Tuoba suggests that we should take her on the way, General Tuoba, she is given to you to care for. I won’t care about her.”
Tuoba Wuyu kept nodding and thanking. It was lucky for him to go with such a beauty.
In the evening, the woman called Shuihan was arranged carefully by Tuoba Wuyu in a relatively clean camp. During the time, there were lots of soldiers visiting the woman to send her bedding and incense burners. The camp of Qin Yunuan and Leng Changxi was not far from the woman’s, so Qin Yunuan was very clear about the movements over there.
Beside Qin Yunuan, there was Leng Shuang, who lowered her head to admit her fault.
“Do you know what your mistake is?”
Lowering her head, Leng Shuang said nothing but one sentence, “I know my fault.”
Qin Yunuan glanced at Leng Changxi, who sat beside her and looked a little dignified. She said to Leng Shuang only, “I don’t know why you were so impulsive at that time. General and I had made it clear that n.o.body should move, but you rushed to save the girl called Shuihan. We were not sure whether she was an enemy or a friend yet. Taking her in the army so recklessly will only give us a lot of trouble.”
“Madam, Leng Shuang didn’t mean to cause so much trouble,” Leng Wu, who had always been silent, defended his younger sister. However, Leng Shuang, who used to act decisively and boldly in the past, now kept silent without saying a word.
Qin Yunuan glanced at Leng Shuang’s facial expression and waved, “Alright. You shall leave now. The woman called Shuihan, watch her tightly. Don’t ask any man to do it,” Qin Yunuan glanced at Leng Wu, “Yuanyang shall do it. She has much experience in the world, and she will be capable of the job.”
When Leng Wu and Leng Shuang both bowed their fists and left, Leng Changxi put down the writing brush in his hand silently. The light on the table was as large as beans and became a little darker. Qin Yunuan came forward and used her hairpin for Leng Changxi to pick up the wick, which was hanging down so that it was lighter. Watching Qin Yunuan’s exquisite hands, Leng Changxi’s heart moved and said, “You shouldn’t criticize Leng Shuang so severely.”
“I know it too. She is always calm when doing things. I don’t know why this time she…”
“Actually, Leng Wu and Leng Shuang are not biological brothers and sisters,” Leng Changxi gave a deep sigh, “Leng Wu is an orphan brought by my father when he was fighting outside. Since he was the same age as me, we practiced martial arts together. I learned martial arts before him, so I taught him some skills from time to time. With the lapse of time, he began to call me ‘Little Master’. It was until then that he called me general. Leng Shuang, however, was a little girl saved by Leng Wu and me when we went out to get rid of caterans. At that time, she was merely 11 or 12. Young as she was, she was surrounded by a group of obscene men in the gra.s.s. They were bullying and insulting her. Those men were caterans. They wanted to take Leng Shuang back to be their servant.”
“The so-called servant girl was just a woman put in the stockade as the tool of the group of people,” Leng Changxi shook his head, “Leng Shuang always has little words. After I saved her back, she learned martial arts everywhere crazily. Leng Wu sympathized with her fate and had already taken her as his own sister. He squeezed money out of his own salary to invite masters for her and paid her study tours to learn martial arts, so she could have the good martial arts with the advantages from hundreds of schools.”
“No wonder. She must have great empathy with Shuihan when she saw so many bandits bullying her today. No wonder she had lost her calmness and helped her,” Qin Yunuan nodded. She seemed to understand, “I only hope that her impulse could stop here. Do not overdo again.”
Just when she finished her words, there was a soldier coming to report outside the door, saying that Shuihan had been waiting outside with her pipa to thank the General and his wife with her music because they saved her life.
Qin Yunuan remembered that when Shuihan was chased by the group of bandits, there was indeed a pipa in her arms. At that time, Qin Yunuan was wondering why Shuihan tried so hard to protect the hindrance. It seemed that she relied on it to work. However, her requirement was a little weird after all. Although she invited two people, Leng Changxi and Qin Yunuan, her aim seemed to be only one person, Leng Changxi.
Leng Changxi frowned and only said roughly, “Let Shuihan return and rest earlier. I’m a little tired now.”
There was silence for some time outside. Suddenly a female voice, graceful and enchanting, said, “The light in General’s camp is so clear and bright. However, you’ve pushed me thousands of miles away. There are no more words to say. I’m merely a singer in the imperial musical office. I’m always low.”
The sigh showed how sad the woman was. Leng Changxi was in a daze. Shuihan’s action in front of his camp seemed to have the intention to force him. If he didn’t grant her requirement, tomorrow, words coming out would be that he stood on his dignity and looked down upon her.
“General and I have both changed our clothes already. It’s really inconvenient for you to come in. If you insist, you shall play one song outside the camp,” Qin Yunuan said in a low voice. She knew that Shuihan wouldn’t leave so easily. Only women knew women best.
While speaking, Shuihan had already plucked the strings of pipa outside the camp. The timbre was moving, the rhythm was euphemistic, and the artistic conception was rich. Were it not for the solid basic skills, there wouldn’t be such an effect. Even though Shuihan looked young, the music she played had such a penetrating power. In the camp, Qin Yunuan closed her white clothes and laid on the soft bed, listening carefully. She had an incredible feeling that her soul had left her body. When the tune stopped suddenly, she felt she was awake from a dream. The moment she was awake, she felt as if she had been emptied like dreaming for a long, long time.
Qin Yunuan and Leng Changxi exchanged a glance. Qin Yunuan knew that Leng Changxi must have felt the same as she did.
Just when they had doubts in mind, to their surprise, Shuihan offered, “It’s late now. General, Madam, please rest earlier. I won’t disturb you any longer.”
Leng Changxi stood up. His fingertips stroked doubtfully.
“She has a good grasp of human psychology,” Qin Yunuan pulled a wisp of broken hair over the ear, “Leaving just when people are the most curious will keep others’ curiosity.”
Finishing her words, Qin Yunuan suddenly felt her heart was sour. So she tried to irritate Leng Changxi intentionally, “I see that Shuihan is beautiful and slim. Now she is also good at mastering men’s hearts. How charming she is!”
Leng Changxi’s heart bloomed suddenly. However, his face revealed nothing. He leaned his head and said to Qin Yunuan, “Yes. She is very charming indeed.”
Qin Yunuan used her words as a test. Now seeing that Leng Changxi had frankly admitted, she felt worried immediately, stretched out her fist, and hit toward Leng Changxi, “Oh! You really want to try to love her?”
Leng Changxi cracked a smile. He hugged Qin Yunuan’s waist, which was too thin to hold, into his bosom with his big hands. Her slender body was exactly like a little daisy in Leng Changxi’s wide chest, lovely and endearing. Leng Changxi lowed his head, gently kissed Qin Yunuan’s cheeks, which were slightly red, and said with a smile, “I dare not! I’ve already had you, such a beautiful woman by my side. Other women are merely floating clouds to me.”
Qin Yunuan pouted and grumbled in a flirtatious manner, “Your words are good. But how well will you do?”
Hearing her words, Leng Changxi was so happy. He hurried to unlock his clothes and said to Qin Yunuan, “Do? OK! Let’s do it.”
Qin Yunuan also smiled at once. She pressed Leng Changxi’s chest with her index finger and gestured with her eyes to the soldiers patrolling outside, “Look at you. You are already the Great General. However, in this camp, you are still not serious.”
During the talk, Leng Changxi’s hot kisses had fallen on Qin Yunuan one by one, from her neck to collarbone, and continued to go down. His fingertip rubbed her b.r.e.a.s.t.s, which were gradually full.
“Let’s keep it down. We won’t disturb them.”
At this time, Leng Changxi had been hot all over as if he were an arrow on the line, which had to be shot out. Qin Yunuan’s body became soft, unexpectedly losing all the resistance. Alas. An old couple as they were, each time they went to bed, they acted like a newly married young couple.
At the same time, Shuihan in red clothes returned to her own camp. It must be admitted that Tuoba Wuyu was quite considerate of Shuihan. The camp was as warm and pleasant as possible, and it was inhabited by only one person. For this reason, Tuoba Wuyi had persuaded a deputy general under his hand for a long time to give up his camp.
The clothes were very thin. Having played music for the whole night outside Leng Changxi’s camp, the body and arms of Shuihan all had a lot of goose b.u.mps. She opened the camp, preparing to have a good rest, but unexpectedly, there had been a person waiting for her inside the camp.
“Who is it?” Shuihan gave out a surprised cry. Her voice was sharp and straightforward, but then immediately became delicate, “Who is there? What do you want to do?”
“It’s me,” the person walking slowly out of the shadow was no one else but Leng Shuang. Her facial expression was light, revealing almost no emotion.
Shuihan curtseyed immediately, “Thank you for saving my life in the afternoon. Otherwise, I’ll be ruined by those bandits.”
“I’m just doing what I should do,” the tone of Leng Shuang was always plain. She just squinted to a piece of thick cotton-padded clothes on the table, “You wear it first. The gauze clothing you are wearing is too thin to resist coldness. We are about to enter the border of Qi in several days. When we reach Luguan, there must be a major war. By then n.o.body will care about your life or whether you’re warm or not.”
Shuihan repeatedly thanked her. Although the tone of Leng Shuang was cold, every sentence was telling Shuihan to remember to take good care of herself.
“Are we going to reach Luguan in a few days?” Shuihan asked while wearing this warm cotton jacket, “I’ve heard that the keeper of Luguan is a new strange person recruited by Sima Ray, the Third Prince of Qi. He not only can use miraculous traps but also has great strength. Moreover, Luguan is easy to defend and difficult to attack with eighty thousand elite soldiers guarding it. What’s the general’s plan of the battle?”
“I’m afraid that it’s not what you should know,” Leng Shuang had gone to the front of the camp. She only glanced back at Shuihan once and directly opened the curtain to go out.
Seeing Leng Shuang leave, Shuihan hid her humble eyes slowly, showing cleverness and righteousness which never appeared before. She secretly pinched the cuff of the cotton coat. Father, you should rest a.s.sured. I would certainly take back that thing and rescue you at all cost.
