Quick Transmigration: The Second Female Lead is Poisonous - Chapter 35
Fengguang caught a cold and it was a severe one. She ended up bedridden for two days straight. Even her breathing matched her body’s hot temperature.
“Young master, the miss’s body is weak resulting in such a dire cold.” The servant girl said. “She still has a fever and should remain resting in bed. She’s not suitable for movement right now.”
Qianqian Wan indecisively looked towards Xuean. “Master, this…”
“It seems like Luo Mei has taken a liking to her.” Xuean’s fingers lightly tapped on the table. His eyes were smiling but they pressured those around him.
The servant girl in question didn’t reply.
Qianqian Wan kept looking between Xuean and Luo Mei before shamelessly intervening. “Master, Xia Fengguang’s sickness is the truth. All the daughters of nobles are raised with delicacy and luxury. She’s not used to hardship. If you still find her to be of use then Master can leave first and this subordinate can watch over her. If she’s useless, then this subordinate…”
Qianqian Wan’s motioned to swipe across his neck with his hand.
Xuean’s gaze darkened. “Didn’t I tell you before? Don’t do anything unnecessary.”
“Yes…” Qianqian Wan recoiled before withdrawing.
“You don’t need to do anything. Leave it as it is.”
Leave what as it is…? Qianqian Wan didn’t dare ask and left the room with Luo Mei.
Once they had left, Xuean took a piece of cake out of the plate. He tried a bite and felt that it was so sweet, his teeth hurt. He still didn’t understand what was so good about this cake. He didn’t spit it out. That didn’t suit his style. He never wasted food so he finished the cake in his hand and then he conveniently and unamusedly finished all the cake on the plate.
Oh, so this sweet cake was called osmanthus flower cake.
“Cough cough…” Fengguang sat on the bed, leaning against the headboard. She sounded pitiful as she asked, “Luo Mei, do I really need to drink this?”
“Miss, this is good for your illness. You must drink it.” Luo Mei replied with an emotionless expression which quickly softened. “But after drinking it, you can have some candied fruit.”
The two words ‘candied fruit’ gave Fengguang endless motivation. She bit her lip and then drank all the medicine in the bowl with one breath. It wasn’t until Luo Mei provided her the candied fruit did she finally breathe again, chewing away all the bitterness in her mouth. She frowned in complaint. “Why is my medicine so bitter?”
“Because I asked them to add the rhizome of goldthread into the medicine.” Before Luo Mei could reply, a male voice had already replied to her question.
Xuean walked in rather triumphantly. Judging by his expression, he was in a good mood.
“Young master.” Luo Mei curtsied and then took a step back.
Xuean went straight to the front of the bed. When he saw her weak appearance, he scoffed as though to make fun of her delicate health.
Fengguang pressed her lips together and asked, “Did something good happen to you?”
“I gambled and won money. Does that count as a good thing?” That wasn’t all he had done. He had gone off to the gambling den and not even an hour had passed, but he had bankrupted three wealthy businessmen.
She complained, “If you’re in a good mood, then why did you still add goldthread to my medicine?”
“That’s called having multiple things to be happy about.”
“You… Cough cough…” She was so angered, her coughing started up again. After a while, her blatantly pale face was filled up with anger again. “Basing your happiness off the pain of others, you’re really a…”
She wanted to say he was a bad person but remembered her own situation and ultimately decided to hold her tongue and keep it to herself.
Xuean let out a slight smile and gently rubbed her on her head. “I was never a good person to begin with. I’ll give you three more days and if you’re still not better, I’ll drag your corpse to the Guanghe Desert.”
Fengguang couldn’t help but shrink back. She didn’t understand how a person could say such terrifying words with such a warm expression.
“Miss Xia, rest well.” Xuean tossed a paper bag over to her and left with a smile.
Fengguang carefully opened up the bag and there was fresh osmanthus flower cake. Her expression didn’t change but Luo Mei who was beside her was in awe.
“Luo Mei…” Fengguang quietly said aloud. “He wouldn’t put goldthread into the cake, right?”
“That…” Luo Mei couldn’t reply. With the young master’s personality, it was plausible he would do that. But just the fact that the young master would give a girl sweets was shocking enough.
