The Mad and Cool Female Lord - 40
Gradually, after an unknown amount of time had passed, the sobbing sounds under the covers finally stopped.
Mu Shengyan gently tugged the covers down. Seeing the young girl who wept till she fell asleep, with her pretty little face still covered in tear stains, her expression was slightly complicated.
Did she like Yanxi?
No. She could not confirm, nor could she resolve herself to get to the bottom of it. Because even if her favorable impression of her has truly gone past the limit, she could not drag this child down underwater with her.
What kind of woman she is? Mu Shengyan naturally knew perfectly clearly.
Without mentioning her in modern times, merely based on the amount of men she had ambiguous relations with after she transmigrated, there’s already who knows how many of them. She is indeed promiscuous, with many affairs, and also enjoys these kinds of ambiguous relationships. Her heart is unable to settle down, to properly, seriously and wholeheartedly love one person.
——Therefore she absolutely could not drag this pure and bright child down underwater with her.
Mu Shengyan had a bitter smile as she bent over, lightly kissing the young girl’s tender cheeks. She quietly apologized to her.
Then, she stood up. She stayed by the bed for a long time. In the end, she still left without turning her head back.
Su Yanxi opened her eyes. She looked at her as she silently closed the door. Only afterwards did she slowly sit up.
The silk covers slid down. She lightly stroked her lips, her eyes slightly complicated.
【Su Su, what are you thinking about?】007, who was anxiously circling around, was completely unable to understand what its partner was thinking this time. It couldn’t help repeatedly asking her.【Since you already decided that you will attack the female lead in this world, why did you let her leave? You have to know that the female lead’s nature is really attractive to peach blossoms*. If later on——】
Su Yanxi’s rosy red lips slightly pursed. “Even if I am able to make her stay, with her nature that seeks many lovers and likes to court peach blossoms, her heart would not settle down. Who knows, maybe in the future, she might even become bored of me.”
007’s expression changed.【How could that be? The female lead is not that scummy right?】
“Or else why would this world be np?” It seemed like ever since she came to this world, Su Yanxi’s feelings became somewhat restrained. She massaged her temples, her tone indifferent as she quietly said. “At the base, the female lead is someone who likes the new and gets tired of the old. She courts peach blossoms and gets tired of them very quickly. Such a person is easily attracted.”
That was why she would choose this time to leave. She still knows how to restrain herself.
Yet 007’s attention was completely drawn elsewhere. It was still weighed down by worries as it asked.【Su Su, your feelings recently are somewhat abnormal ah. If there is a problem, you must mention them to me, do you understand?】
Su Yanxi froze, then laughed, her face did relax a bit. “Nothing la. I am just trying to figure out this young lady from the Su Family’s mentality, activities and thinking all the time. I sunk in a bit too deeply. Also, the analysis just now was what the original body discerned, I merely remembered it by chance, nothing more.”
Only then was 007 able to breathe.【It’s not a problem to try to figure it out, but you must not be too in sync. Or else, if you can’t extract yourself, then there would be trouble, do you understand?】
Su Yanxi naturally nodded her head and smiled in reply.
【Then what plans do you have afterwards?】After resolving the question that was weighing down its heart, 007 clearly livened up a bit. It was in high spirits as it asked about its partner’s plans.
007 seemed to have understood a bit【You are planning to——?】
“If someone stays by your side every single day, you might still feel that it’s fresh in the beginning, but once the time has turned long, you would grow tired of it.”
“On the contrary, if you are unable to see someone every day, and that someone is a special unobtainable existence that you hold dear ——Then that someone would become the cinnabar mole in your heart, the white moonlight outside your window, making you think of that someone at all times, unable to contain another person’s figure.”
Su Yanxi imitated the original body’s thoughts as a lady from the Su Family, resourceful like a demon yet is also a beauty with unhappy fates. Under 007’s tongue-tied expression, her face was serious as she continued. “So if I plant such a seed inside her heart, it would slowly germinate and sprout. Mu Shengyan would then not have the spare thoughts to court other new peach blossoms.”
Of course, in accordance with the lady from the Su Family’s aspirations, there were still other dark ideas that she did not plan on telling 007.
For example, to use this method to make Mu Shengyan struggle for her, crumble apart and be filled with so much grief that she would have been better off dead. It would also let her taste what it is like to go through many twists and turns to feel heartbroken for a person. In addition, it would make those men who already fell in love with Mu Shengyan also feel the despair of wishing for something yet not obtaining it as her retribution!
——This should count as resolving her bitter hatred and resentful thoughts that had lingered on her for a lifetime.
As a result, in the following days, even if she lost the female lead’s tracks, Su Yanxi still calmly passed her days drinking her medicine and recuperating like before.
Without a hint of worry.
Madam Su, who was able to give birth to such an intelligent and astute daughter like the young lady from the Su Family, was naturally not a simple person either.
That was why, even if a servant girl suddenly disappeared, the entire Su Manor acted like it never had such a person before, continuing to do its thing like before.
It was as if they were already used to it, and as if they simply did not care.
Until one day. When they heard that the Wulin alliance leader——who is the fiancée of the young lady from the Su Family——Bai Jieliang came to visit them, Su Yanxi finally livened up.
Under Lu Yi’s ridiculing gaze, she lowered her eyes. Her long lashes slightly quivered as her small face gradually turned bright red.
She specially called for Lu Yi to dress her up nicely. She looked at herself in the bronze mirror, admiring herself for a long time, before she decided to leave the room.
Bai Jieliang was currently sitting on the chair smiling while exchanging greetings with his future father-in-law. He heard the silver bells, as if hidden yet nonexistent, lightly ring.
He followed the sound to raise his head, then saw a delicate young girl lightly and softly coming in.
She wore a pale blue, natural silver silk gauze skirt. Draped over her shoulders was a thick azurite blue gauze underneath a misty emerald green gauze. She looked roughly around fifteen or sixteen years old. She had the standard oval face with clear, limpid, pitch-black eyes, tender rosy red lips, a face like white jade, a countenance like the hibiscus. Her entire body emitted an aura bright like the spring flowers and clear like the autumn moon.
Bai Jieliang gazed at the graceful and refined young girl like the willow bending in the wind; an extremely beautiful woman flashed through the depths of his eyes.
He didn’t expect that the sickly and pale little girl that he saw before had, at this moment, already grown up into such an unrivalled beauty, capable of causing a state to fall.
Thinking so, he would not lose anything with this marriage.
The Wulin alliance leader, who had originally come to discuss matters of marriage anyway, felt more and more satisfied with Su Yanxi inside his heart. The gaze that he used to look at her slightly softened. The alienation in the depths of his eyes had also gradually retreated somewhat.
After Su Yanxi paid her respects to her father, she turned her body around, suppressed the shyness in the bottom of her heart, and said mildly and gently. “Big Brother Bai3 , long time no see”
Bai Jieliang’s expression was gentle as he humbly supported the young girl to her seat. His intimate tone had a faint teasing edge. “Yeah. I didn’t expect that the little girl from back then grew up now ah, even growing more and more pretty.”
Su Yanxi’s eyes curved. Her bright eyes glittered and her pearly teeth shone in a broad smile. “Hee hee, Big Brother Bai also grew more and more handsome ah.”
He didn’t expect that she would reply to him in this manner. This time, Bai Jieliang was truly somewhat surprised. You have to know that when he saw her a few years ago, she only bashfully lowered her head at him the entire time, keeping silent. Unexpectedly, after not seeing her for so many years, even the personality of this little girl turned this cute and able to make one happy.
At this moment, this Lord Alliance Leader, who had yet to meet the heavenly maiden of his life, Mu Shengyan, actually started to look forward to their post-wedding days.
“Actually, this junior came to visit for two reasons. One is to discuss Xi’er4 and I’s marriage.” As Bai Jieliang said that, he had even casted a gentle glance at the young girl, who blushed and lowered her eyes. He paused for a bit, then continued to respectfully say to the solemn faced Patriarch Su. “Second is to——I want to invite Xi’er out to Lake Mingan for a stroll. I hope that father-in-law permits.”
Patriarch Su had a sour face as he shot a glance at his shy daughter, showing that he felt somewhat stuffy. As a result, he then leisurely said in a hypocritical manner. “That’s not that good right. Afterall, you two have yet to be married, and the impact on our two families is not that good……”
“Father-in-law, you have no need to worry.” Bai Jieliang smiled. “Without mentioning how Xi-er and I have an engagement between us, en——We, as children in the martial arts world, have never bothered about these small matters. Furthermore, in Jianghu, there does not seem to be the so called ‘separation of male and female.’”
Patriarch Su: “……” This lad seems to have some meaning hidden in between his words ah. Hehe, is he implying that I am pedantic?
Stinky lad, shameless, pei! If this lord says that there is a separation between male and female, then there is a separation between male and female ah! ヽ(≧Д≦)ノ! Humph!
Yet just when Patriarch Su was about to lose control of his temper, the true master of the family, Madam Su, finally walked in.
Madam Su smiled as she gratefully glanced at the perfect couple. She secretly glared at her husband who was asking for trouble. After she saw him shrivel up, as if he turned honest, she intimately and kindly said to Bai Jieliang. “Jialiang ah, our family’s Xi’er would have to trouble you then. But you have to take good care of our Xi’er ah.”
Bai Jieliang hastily and gratefully looked at the understanding future mother-in-law. “Many thanks to mother-in-law. Jieliang would naturally be sure to take good care of Xi’e. How Xi’er went out, would definitely be how she comes back.”
Su Yanxi listened to this somewhat crude pledge. Her heart was not delighted; she was not moved in the slightest nor bashful. On the contrary, she thought about something very unrelated to the topic: although this Wulin alliance leader appears to look like a gentle and refined scholar, in reality, his character was set to be merely someone who ardently loves martial arts, an uneducated person…….
007:【……】Aren’t you destroying the atmosphere a bit too much?!
“Then that’s good. Then that’s good.” Madam Su repeatedly said twice, as if extremely rest assured with Bai Jieliang. “Jieliang’s temperament is so steady, I naturally believe in you.”
Su Yanxi lifted her somewhat burning hot and bright red little face at the same exact time that Bai Jieliang gazed over at her; their gazes met.
She reflexly revealed a delicate and lovely smile, her eyes limpid and clear, accurately making a sad gaze like light smoke.
Yet in the Wulin alliance leader’s memories, those who interacted with him were always those candid and slightly rough heroine type beauties. Before long, he met with these kinds of women who lived in their boudoirs, gentle, soft and demure, like the willows in the wind. All of the sudden, he fell in love with that delicate expression and that charming and demure smile of hers. His heart suddenly jumped due to that scene.
The dignified Wulin alliance leader, favored by the gods, with outstanding martial arts, got captured by his fiancée’s smile, that could not even be said to be her best, just like that…….
En, for the moment it could also be counted as those so called “even heroes have a weakness for the charms of a beauty” right?
Bai Jieliang was in a somewhat difficult position as he came back to his senses. He couldn’t help forcing a smile and ridiculing himself like that.
——However, after all his fiancée was so pretty, he acting like this could not be counted as an awkward situation, right.
It seems like in novels, a big part of it was like this. No matter how pretty the female side character was or how much of a goddess she was, no matter whether or not there was an engagement with the female side character, even if there was once feelings with the female side character already, when they met the Mary Sue female lead, the male lead would always disregard everything and fall crazy in love with the female lead and abandon the female side character……
