Quick Transmigration: The Second Female Lead is Poisonous - Chapter 41
“Xuean…” Fengguang helplessly tugged on his clothes.
He casually replied, “Yes?”
“We’re going to survive.”
He laughed and patted on her arm. “Alright, we’re going to survive. How is your wound? Does it still hurt?”
His thumb lightly grazed the wound on her neck. Like the others, he had found the bright red to be visually piercing but now, he also admitted that it was also an eyesore.
“It hurts.” She nodded her head honestly.
After all, she was the precious eldest daughter of the prime minister. Other than getting hurt when she played as a child, when else would she get injured? One could tell from her flawless skin alone that she had no scars. She didn’t like to drink medicine and was scared of pain. She was the kind of girl that needed to be taken care of but so what? She was born that way, exuding the feeling that she needed to be taken care of and there were people who were willing to take care of her.
Xuean patted her on the head. “After today, I will never hurt you again.”
“Okay…” She obediently replied.
After a long while, everything seemed to become fine again in only a moment’s time. The sandstorm had stopped. There was still a slight wind but it was no longer the strong winds from before.
Xuean tightly adjusted the gray cloak on her. “Stay here and they will come find you.”
“You’re leaving?” She looked up as she carefully reached out to hold his sleeve.
“I’m leaving,” he said. “But I will quickly be back.”
Fengguang’s hand retreated. She didn’t express any happiness or sadness. She merely blinked as she looked at him and said, “I will take care of Seven. When you see Luo Mei, ask her if she’s well for me.”
“Alright, good girl.” Xuean’s hand touched the side of her cheek. Warmth appeared in the depths of his eyes. He was not a warm, gentle person but unfortunately, no one ever saw through him to see the frosty core in his bones.
Every woman appraised him as a warm, gentle, and handsome man. However, after today, he would not be considered handsome anymore and even his gentleness was wearing thin.
Fengguang copied his action and also placed her hand on his face, on the terrifying, mutilated left side. “Xuean, you need to be well.”
He went silent for a second.
“Ah, of course I will be well.” He quickly and inattentively smiled as he said, “Goodbye, my dear Miss Xia.”
Goodbye Xuean. Goodbye to these ‘kidnapping’ days.
“Hey! The girl is here!” After Luo Ying’s shouting, many people began rushing over.
At this moment in time, Fengguang was visibly very weak. She was leaning against the sand dune, unable to even let out a single word. She appeared so frail that whether it was a man or a woman, anyone who saw her would develop a feeling of pity towards her.
Naturally, it was impossible for Xiao Ruo to pick her up. In his eyes, there was only Bai Rong. As for the other soldiers, no one dared to help her. Thus, Luo Ying could only personally volunteer to help. He carried Fengguang and was surprised to find that this beautiful girl was so terrifyingly light. She was like a little ball in his arms, causing his heart to ache.
Luo Ying swept his gaze over the gray cloak covering her and he finally maintained a serious manner instead of letting out his playboy self.
Regarding this gray cloak, everyone had seen it. Some didn’t think too much of it. Some dared not to think about it and then there were the few who couldn’t help but overthink about it.
Xiao Ruo lowered his head to glance at Bai Rong who seemed out of it. He then began to fiddle with his fingers. His gaze darkened. It had to be said that to sacrifice one’s appearance for the one they love could make them more important in the woman’s heart.
However, it would only increase by a little bit.
