How To Survive as a Villain - 107
Xiao YuAn, after walking out of the wooden cabin with a muddled face, sat under a tree outside. He pulled up a blade of grass and put it in his mouth. Then he folded his hands behind his head and leaned against the tree to think about the most recent event.
How come that conversation was completely different from the original novel?!
Did he say the script the wrong way? Or was it Yan HeQing who didn’t follow the script?!
What about the seductive “you have a beautiful voice, but it’s a shame that I can’t see you” sentiment?! Why didn’t Yan HeQing say it? Was it because the voice produced by the effect of the small red fruit didn’t sound like Lin Shenling’s voice?!
Was he seducing Yan HeQing the wrong way?
Fortunately, Yan HeQing’s eyes were temporarily blind; otherwise, Xiao YuAn wouldn’t know what to do with Yan HeQing. So he thought of eating the red fruit to change his voice, and then pretend to be Lin Shenling. After taking care of him for a bit, he would take Yan HeQing to Taoyuan Village and leave him under the care of the real Lin Shenling. Like that, everything will be alright! And because of what happened before, Xiao YuAn didn’t want to change the course of the original work any longer. After all, he was afraid that he will harm someone again due to his intervention, so he was trying really hard to follow the original plot as closely as possible.
Therefore, even though it was him the one who found Yan HeQing, Xiao YuAn decided to disguise himself as Lin Shenling and walk through the original plot.
But now, it seemed that something went wrong. According to the original book, Yan HeQing’s skill of seducing women should have reached its peak, and from collecting members in his harem, then his bed skills should…. cough….
So why was he acting so cold right now?!
Xiao YuAn tried to remember if he had said something wrong, but in the end, he couldn’t think of anything. He got up with a long sigh, patted the dust off his body, and then went to pick up several kinds of medicinal herbs which could cure wounds. After picking enough, he washed them and pounded them into a paste. After that, he ate a small red fruit that was hidden inside his sleeve and walked back into the wooden cabin with the medicine in hand.
When Xiao YuAn pushed open the wooden door, he saw Yan HeQing maintaining his previous posture, his face was completely expressionless. The sunset light entering through the broken window was falling on Yan HeQing’s body, making him look extremely lonely and isolated.
Xiao YuAn was slightly startled at this. After the initial shock, he restrained himself and said: “Gongzi, it’s time to apply more medicine.”
Yan HeQing titled his head. After remembering he couldn’t see, he turned back again and gave a gentle hmmm.
Xiao YuAn took a few steps forward, put down the bowl with the medicine inside, and reached out to undress Yan HeQing. Most of Yan HeQing’s wounds were stabs of varying depths, and they were mostly on his abdomen and arms. Xiao YuAn suspected that Yan HeQing had internal injuries, but he couldn’t ask Yan HeQing where he felt uncomfortable because he fainted right the next moment.
However, just when Xiao YuAn reached out his hand to touch Yan HeQing’s belt, Yan HeQing suddenly stretched out his hand to block his action, and said with indifference: “I’ll apply the medicine by myself.”
Xiao YuAn was really shocked by this: “But you…. Gongzi, you can’t see, right?”
“It doesn’t matter, I’ll do it myself.” Yan HeQing insisted, and Xiao YuAn had no other choice than to retreat to one side.
In the meantime, Yan HeQing fumbled to take off his own clothes when he suddenly stopped midway, and said: “Did you change my clothes?”
Xiao YuAn’s eyes brightened!
‘Here it is! The original plot’s dialogue!’
“Ah…. yes. Gongzi’s clothes were stained with dust and dirt. They were too dirty and if you wore them again, then your wounds would get worse. It just so happened that someone had left behind some clean clothes in this wooden cabin, so I changed them for you.” Xiao YuAn answered with honesty.
‘My friend! She changed your clothes! The wife changed the clothes for the Male Lead! What a sweet thing to do! How can the Male Lead give up this great opportunity to seduce her!’
According to the development of the original plot, Yan HeQing will gently raise his eyebrows and say with a slightly dangerous and teasing tone of voice: “Oh? Did you? So does this mean that you’ve seen my naked body?”
When Xiao YuAn read this part the first time, he couldn’t help but imagine Yan HeQing’s tone of voice like if he was saying “Woman, you’re playing with fire. You’re seducing me…” and so on. Just like ‘how a Tyrannical President would say it’ type of voice.
Now that Yan HeQing was about to say such a sentence from the bottom of his evil spirit and madness, Xiao YuAn couldn’t help but ponder about the original book’s idiotic dog blood dialogue and feel really…. feel a little bit excited about it!
However, Yan HeQing didn’t say anything after that. In the meantime, he was actually frowning while making a few attempts to open his own undergarments, not caring about his injuries at all. Yan HeQing casually applied the medicine on his wounds based on the feeling of pain, he was basically pressing it wherever he felt it hurt. When he finished, he put on his clothes once again, but there were several places in which he missed to apply the medicine in the end.
Xiao YuAn: “……”
‘It was really hard for me to walk through the mountain to gather the medicinal herbs and then grind them into a paste! Can you at least take this a little bit more seriously?! It’s a damn waste if you do it like this!!’
‘No, no. That isn’t the main point.’
‘Why the fuck you’re not trying to seduce me?!’
Xiao YuAn cleared his throat to make sure that he still had a female voice, and then carefully said: “Gongzi… it will be hard for the wounds to heal if the medicine is applied like that.”
“There won’t be any problem. Thank you.” Yan HeQing’s tone of voice was indifferent.
Xiao YuAn was really confused. Was it because he wasn’t flirting enough? He thought about the few remaining scenarios in his memory and, while trying to mimic Lin Shenling’s tone of voice, he asked softly: “What country is Gongzi from?”
“Southern Yan Kingdom.”
“Do you have any siblings?”
“May I know how to address Gongzi?”
“My surname is Yan.”
“Yan-gongzi, may I know your name?”
“Yan HeQing… Yan-gongzi, that’s such a beautiful name.”
“Then, Yan-gongzi, do you feel any other discomfort besides your external injuries?”
Xiao YuAn couldn’t take it anymore! He won’t ask any more questions! Fuck! He’d rather go provoke a bull! At least, if he talks to a bull they would stomp its hooves and shake its head!! What are all these emotionless answers? Every word should be precious! But he won’t even say more than 3 words! So what’s the damn point?
Why is it so hard to grasp the script of the Third Female Lead?
Xiao YuAn said to Yan HeQing that he should pay more attention to his body and have a good rest. After that, he started to tidy up the cotton wadding and straw. There was no bed in this cabin, so the sleeping quarters consisted simply of a large board and a few low wooden stumps. Although in the original plot, Yan HeQing slept with Lin Shenling on the first night; right now Yan HeQing’s attitude was very indifferent, so Xiao YuAn decided to stay away from him. However, this was a relief to Xiao YuAn. After all, there was a clear difference between holding a woman and holding a man. Xiao YuAn was still struggling during the day about what to do if Yan HeQing realized that he wasn’t a woman, if he kept trying to drive this plot forward.
Xiao YuAn accommodated the place where he would sleep. He nestled in a corner of the board, but he tossed and turned for half the night before he finally fell asleep.
The next morning, the early morning mist was thick, and Xiao YuAn woke up due to the sound of coughing. He opened his eyes, and after looking at Yan HeQing in a daze, he was instantly awake.
Yan HeQing was covering his mouth while coughing, and a scarlet liquid spilled over his fingers. The bloody color startled Xiao YuAn and Yan HeQing’s face was extremely pale. Xiao YuAn didn’t know if it was because of the pain or the blood loss due to his injuries.
XYA: Why aren’t you flirting with me?? ? ?!! !
YHQ: I’m a faithful husband “ma’am”.
*if only YHQ knew it was his crush the one trying to seduce him lmao*
