The Mad and Cool Female Lord - 38
Thank you Ko-Fi Supporter and LilMs13itch for your Ko-fi!
“Is Miss a guest that father has invited?”
Su Yanxi abruptly asked softly with her tender and timid voice. Her little face was even lightly dusted with peach powder, appearing extremely cute.
Mu Shengyan’s body suddenly stiffened. A trace of awkwardness flew across her face. Then, under her curious clear black eyes, an ambiguous reply came out from her mouth
“So it was like that ah. Recently I was resting and have yet to go outside. I’m truly sorry.” Su Yanxi was slightly embarrassed as she smiled. “I am Su Yanxi. I don’t know Miss’ name?”
“Mu Shengyan.” Hearing her say so, she did not have any sort of desire to inquire further. Mu Shengyan blinked her eyes, her heart couldn’t help relaxing, releasing that breath.
Su Yanxi raised her small face and gently smiled at her, her cat-like eyes sparkled.
“I shall support you back for you to rest, okay? How could you come out when you’re still recovering?” Yet Mu Shengyan’s sharp eyes saw her somewhat forceful expression and couldn’t help knitting her eyebrows as she spoke to her in a soft voice.
Su Yanxi looked around left and right, and did not find the existence of a servant girl. Then, somewhat embarrassedly, she said “Huh? Then I shall bother Miss Mu.” She paused, then couldn’t resist defending herself in a soft voice. “Actually, I have basically recovered. It’s just that, just now, I don’t know why I suddenly……”
Silly child, Mu Shengyan couldn’t resist the impulse to roll her eyes. She sighed at her. “Isn’t that the same as not being fully recovered yet?”
Su Yanxi: “……”
Seeing the young girl reveal an ashamed expression to her, where even the tips of her ears glistened with redness, Mu Shengyan lowly chuckled with a spirited and elated expression. “Alright, I won’t say anymore. I’ll support you back to your room first okay? It’s not good to continue being blown by the wind.”
Su Yanxi slightly stuck her tongue out, revealing a somewhat childish expression.
Mu Shengyan shot her a humorous glance, then supported her back to her room.
After entering the room, she couldn’t resist curiously measuring up her surroundings. The room of an ancient girl turned out to be like this ah. As expected, it was quaint. Although, she didn’t know that the palace that the original body as a princess lived in was so majestic, yet uniquely refined, fresh and clean as nature. Moreover, it was as if she could feel the breath of the gentle little temperament unique to females filling the room.
In the room, there were even the faint remnants of a simple yet elegant delicate scent. The scent was familiar, just like the smell that she smelt from Su Yanxi’s body. Mu Shengyan’s mind wandered, when even the tips of her ears turned slightly red. She couldn’t help feigning casualness as she inadvertently asked. “What incense do you use? The fragrance is pretty nice.”
“Huh? That should be Wanyin Fragrance. I casually made it.” Su Yanxi tilted her head and pondered with a confused face. “However, recently I have not used incense ah. Does the room have some fragrance?”
Mu Shengyan suddenly paused. Her face suddenly turned burning hot. Then could that be her natural fragrance?
She’s worthy of being a beauty, she even had a natural fragrance on her body ah.
However Mu Shengyan did not have that jealous mentality. Afterall, compared to her body that had beauty yet was delicate, she preferred her own healthy and lively body more.
Furthermore, she didn’t look half bad herself. Mu Shengyan was lost in thought. Although she wasn’t beautiful enough to cause the downfall of a city like the peach blossom miss in front of her, she does embody the so-called bright and colorful beauty. She should be considered as a member of the attractive ones right?
In reality, Mu Shengyan still sold herself too short.
Unlike the soft, understanding, and well-educated ancient woman, Mu Shengyan, with the spirit of a modern woman, had a more independent, self-confident and unrestrained disposition. She looked especially cheerful and candid, able to resolutely cut off relations. That thinking that went beyond ancient ideology and judgement was especially good at attracting men’s attention.
It was precisely because of this reason, that she was able to attract so many top quality peach blossoms1 in the original novel.
“Miss Mu?” Seeing that Mu Shengyan went into a daze, Su Yanxi couldn’t help but curiously stand in front of her and wave her hands over her eyes. Yet she didn’t expect that she was firmly gripped due to Mu Shengyan’s conditioned reflex.
The miss of a big family that was never treated in such an unbridled manner, couldn’t help but blush.
Su Yanxi gently lowered her eyes. Those slender eyelashes were like butterfly wings as they lightly quivered in midair. They seemed to be able to directly pierce through a person’s heart.
The soft, smooth and exquisite feeling inside her hands was truly too nice. Mu Shengyan was unable to react, her hands couldn’t resist the desire anymore as they unconsciously stoked them, taking advantage of the beauty.
Su Yanxi’s voice slightly trembled, sounding adorable and tender yet timid. Mu Shengyan had just shook her head, then bumped into that pair of watery eyes, filled with faint shame and anger yet turned more and more translucent.
Her heart slightly trembled. Her tight grasp of her hands, unwilling to let her go, subconsciously loosened somewhat, allowing Su Yanxi to find a chance and hastily retract her hands.
“Apologies, I thought it was something……due to my body’s instinct and took action. Yanxi, you would not take offense, right?” After sobering up, Mu Shengyan was also somewhat annoyed at herself for losing control. Then, she pleaded with the young girl, who had tilted her head away to avoid looking at her, for forgiveness.
The tips of Su Yanxi’s ears twitched. She couldn’t help pouting as she turned her face back to face her. Her tone was steeped in some tenderness. “You……truly have no sense of shame. Who allowed you to call me Yanxi?”
Yet Mu Shengyan suddenly had a bright smile. “How did you know? You have to know that my most powerful ability is that I reach for a yard after getting an inch, en——I believe that you would know in the future.”
Su Yanxi: “……” What was going on with this kind of indescribable pride when speaking? _(:3)∠)_
Seeing the young girl reveal a gentle yet helpless expression, the faint exhaustion in her black eyes had also turned somewhat more lively, Mu Shengyan smiled as she stretched her hands out to stroke her forehead. Her black eyes were bright like stars. She deeply laughed, unintentionally revealing some gentleness. “Alright, I won’t mess with you anymore. Hurry up and lie down to take a nice rest, okay.”
Su Yanxi blankly stared.
Mu Shengyan thought about it, loosened her grip again and smiled as she bantered with her. “Hm, it’s not appropriate for me to disturb you, so I shall take my leave first la.”
“Wait a moment.” Su Yanxi softly tugged at her sleeves before she turned her body around. Under Mu Shengyan’s raised eyebrows looking at her in confusion, that pair of lovely, watery, bright eyes revealed some nervousness and uneasiness. Yet she still persevered as she asked. “W-Will I be able to see you in the future?”
Mu Shenyan’s heart jumped.
Why would she ask such a question? Unless she had long known about the lie she casually made up in response to her question, and was just being considerate of her by not exposing it?
If that was true, then this miss was truly a bit too smart and astute, yet at the same time, gentle and considerate.
In order to verify her guess, Mu Shengyan hesitated for a bit, and put on a hesitant expression, purposefully not replying.
As expected, she saw this girl dressed in pink gauze clearly show her somewhat conflicted thoughts as she uneasily bit her lower lips. Her thoughts were probably tangled. In the end, still in a tone afraid of being rejected, she cautiously asked. “I, if there is a possibility, are you willing to accompany me by my side?”
As if she discovered that her words were somewhat ambiguous, the young girl’s cheeks turned bright red. Then she squeaked out to try to remedy that. “My meaning is that I wish that you are able to——”
“Silly girl, are you just not afraid that I could be a bad person?”
Mu Shengyan tenderly looked at the young girl raised in her boudoir, naive and unaware of the matters in the world. She recalled how in the past, when she read novels, she would always roast the unmarried ancient girl on how they would always be bewitched by men. Yet at this moment, when she actually met such an adorable girl, a protective desire arises from the bottom of her heart.
“Why would I be afraid? You saved me ah.” Su Yanxi’s bright cat-like eyes fixedly stared at the unruly girl in front of her wearing blue garments. She used an extremely strong, gentle and warm tone. “I believe that Miss Mu is a good person.”
Mu Shengyan: “……” She actually received the “good person” card in an ancient setting such as this. This feeling is truly pretty delicate.
The corners of Mu Shengyan’s lips appeared to be set in a bantering angle. “Even if I truly am a good person, how could you explain my presence to your family?”
“Uh?” Clearly, the young girl had not thought of this problem before. She wore a vexed expression as she tried hard to think. “I could tell mother that you are my friend. T-then, you came to live with me ah.”
Being amused by the young girl’s stammering words, Mu Shengyan heartily laughed for a bit. She then returned a question. “Then how did I meet you? With one look, one could tell that Yanxi, you are among the young ladies from large families raised in their boudoirs, someone who is completely incompatible with people like me ah.”
Su Yanxi pouted and glared at her in discontent. But that pair of bright, limpid eyes were naturally born to be delicate and charming. Even if they were to glare at someone, they would still seem coquettish.
“It would be better to say that you picked me up from your doorstep, and seeing that I was pitiful, you wanted to bring me home to serve as a servant girl.” Mu Shengyan’s black eyes rippled, making one’s heart sway, with a bad smile. With a joking tone, she came up with a stupid idea for her.
“That could do ah. Then I shall go and tell that to Mother!” Su Yanxi determinedly replied, unconvinced as she tried to make a provoking face.
Such a naive little girl.
As if Mu Shengyan would believe that she would truly say that. She just replied with a smile.
As a result, after this, she watched as Su Yanxi ordered the servant girl in green carrying her medicine, who had just pushed open the door, to her side. She repeated what was said above, that extremely fake reason. She then told her to report that word for word to her mother. Mu Shengyan couldn’t help going “……”
Wait! Seeing that Lu Yi was cheerfully complying, about to turn around and leave, leaving behind her back figure, Mu Shengyan’s heart formed the Erkang’s hand gesture.2 She dejectedly and regretfully thought, if she had known earlier that Yanxi, this silly girl, would actually dare to do this, then she definitely would have came up with a better reason ah QAQ.
Speaking of which, is that servant girl not curious or frightened about the sudden additional stranger in her lady’s room?!
——That is to say, is it really okay for the people from the Su family, from the top to the bottom, to be so dense?!
Then, after completing her mission and coming back, Lu Yi passed on the message that Madam Su had already agreed. Mu Shengyan was speechless.
——Turns out, we could truly do as we please?!
“Miss Mu, could it be that you are not willing?” Seeing that the young girl dressed in blue kept silent, Su Yanxi, who was happily smiling, couldn’t help feeling slightly anxious at this moment.
She coquettishly lifted her little face to ask her, her gaze able to move people. “Is it because I presumptuously made a decision that made you angry?”
“How could that be?” Understanding that the young girl was sensitive, Mu Shengyan replied with a laugh. “You are the one that took me, who at the moment has no place to call home, in. I couldn’t be hastier to repay you for such a big favor, so how could I get angry?”
Su Yanxi secretly peeked at her expression. “Then, your expression is still……”
Mu Shengyan gently yet jokingly rubbed her nose, her eyes bright and her brows cheerful. “I just feel a bit strange, that’s all. Madam Su did not see me even once, yet she agreed to let me stay just like that? Would that not be a bit too casual?”
Su Yanxi covered her nose that was being assaulted, then blankly returned her gaze.
How to treat a beauty whose appearance was like that of an charming fairy, en……the difference in Mu Shengyan’s heart when it contained a person and when it didn’t was pretty big.
