Wangye, This Concubine Is Busy! - 3
Chapter 3 – Ecstasy
Survival instinct made him immediately grasped the whip curled around his waist. Both his feet kept stepping on the cliff’s protruding rocks to find leverage and at the same time, he used the sword in his hand to stab the face of the cliff to pull himself up. When he was climbing, the other person also helped to drag him up with the whip. Fortunately, he did not fall too far down and while grasping the branches on the rock, he tried hard to climb up. In the end, he climbed up successfully from the Death Valley.
Once he reached the top, Si Liujing could no longer hold on and fell to the ground. Just before fainting, he heard that woman’s voice again.
“Hey, Si Liujing, don’t faint! I’m afraid I won’t be able to move you……..”
Since this annoying woman wants to save him, why is she nagging now?
Closing his eyes, he sank into the dark vortex of unconsciousness.
Si Liujing seemed to have woken up in a dreamlike chaotic situation. He felt an unbearable discomfort. His body felt like it was going to explode and there seemed to be a fire burning inside him causing discomfort to his whole body.
In the dream, he felt someone touching his body, and every part he was touched felt soothing. It seemed to be a woman’s hand and there was also the smell of a woman which made him desire for more. He could even feel the soft body of the other person against his body.
Women, he needs women!
“Hey…….Si Liujing! Wake up! It hurts!……”
Bai Yuxiao used both her fists to hit him on the head. While she was helping him to apply medicine to his injuries, he suddenly turned over and pressed her down, and then kissed her fiercely without saying a word,.
Blushing, she resisted him. If it was not for his serious injuries and the fear of opening up his wounds again if she struggled too hard, she would have pushed him away unceremoniously. It seemed the assassin’s words were true. Si Liujing was poisoned with ecstasy and must be detoxified within five days.
Really! The two of them are now dirty and smelly. They should at least clean up first!
“Si Liujing, I said stop it! Do you hear me?!”
Si Liujing was startled. He came to his senses and realized that it was not a dream after all.
What happened to him? Is he bullying a woman?
Si Liujing immediately released the woman and backed away. Due to his rough movements, the wound on his abdomen pulled, causing him to gasp in pain involuntarily.
Once Bai Yuxiao was freed, she sat up hastily and both of them sat on different ends of the bed. She wiped her swollen lips that were kissed by him and there were still traces of blood on them. Then she tidied up her messy clothes.
“What do you want to do?”
When Bai Yuxiao heard his question, she felt very angry with him.
“What do I want to do?! You forced yourself on me, I didn’t force you!”
Si Liujing could not argue with her since he did indeed assaulted her but he could not control himself. At this moment, he finally realized something amiss.
The poison is only taking effect now! Damn!
The woman had been following him all the time and she had also rescued him from the edge of the cliff. It seemed she did not harbor any malice towards him but at present, he could not even protect himself and did not want to implicate her.
“Leave quickly! I’m afraid I can’t control myself!”
Unexpectedly, she replied with exasperation. “If I leave, how will you detoxify the poison in your body?”
Si Liujing was startled for a moment after hearing her words.
Can it be she is willing to help him?
When Bai Yuxiao saw he did not say anything, she continued. “The poison in your body is called ‘Ecstasy’. If you don’t find a woman within five days, death is imminent. Today is already the third day.”
Si Liujing gritted his teeth and hated the viciousness of the enemy. He was drenched in sweat and tried hard to endure the discomfort. “Is there a brothel nearby?”
“There is one in the village nearby. However, it takes two days to reach the place if you travel on horseback.”
Two days? It will be too late! Even if he can reach the place in two days, it would be a waste of time if he cannot find a brothel. Unless……..
“Since there is no other woman around, it can only be me.” She muttered.
Si Liujing was taken by surprise. He did not expect she would take the initiative to make this suggestion so that he did not need to waste words to convince her.
Thinking up to here, Si Liujing suddenly understood.
This woman knew his identity and since this is an opportunity for her to fly up to the branches and attach herself to the rich and powerful, which woman would not desire it? This explains why she recommended herself so easily. Although she has a desire to save people, she should also harbor a liking for him and wants to commit herself to him.
For Si Liujing to have this thought, in fact, there is a reason. He is a member of the royal family. He has handsome looks, and his temperament is much better than most ordinary men, and countless noble ladies in the imperial city wanted to approach him. Even if he is now in an embarrassing situation, it cannot conceal the fact that he is a Wangye. It is only natural for women to cling to a man like him. How can he not understand the thoughts of women?
Although he did not know her identity or her background, he did not have a choice.
Now this woman in front of him is indeed his only antidote.
Alright then……to survive, this is just taking in one more woman and it does not harm him.
But in reality, Si Liujing had misunderstood her.
The reason why Bai Yuxiao so easily offered her body to help him detoxify was that she is his concubine. However, she had secretly sneaked out from the royal mansion, of course, she would not be so stupid to tell him.
“Since lady knows who I am, you can rest assured Benwang will not treat lady unfairly after this.”
When she saw him approaching, Bai Yuxiao quickly held up both her hands to push against his chest.
“Wait, wait…….you still have injuries on your body. Isn’t it inconvenient to do this kind of deed? Why not bear with it a little longer and let me help to treat your wounds first?”
“It’s alright. These light injuries won’t be a hindrance.”
“Then let me help to clean them up first. The blood and sweat……ah!…….” Suddenly, he pressed down on her, and she instantly stared at him like she was looking at a ghost. “Don’t worry! Didn’t I tell you I will help you to detoxify?” She struggled to get up but was afraid of touching his wounds.
But by this time, Si Liujing could not endure it anymore, so how could he wait for a while longer?
“Benwang can’t endure it any longer. Why don’t you just bear with it?”
Si Liujing’s face was flushed and he was breathing fast. How could he still maintain patience and constraint as before? His only remaining sanity had long since vanished.
Bai Yuxiao was pressed down by him and was unable to move. She understood that the poison was acting up and it was becoming unbearable for him. She could not help but sigh in her heart.
Alright, she will bear with it………after all, he is her husband.
However, it is afraid that this valiant and suave Ling Wang had long forgotten about her existence.
Although she is one of the many concubines in his inner courtyards, she is not like the women in the inner courtyards. Once a woman enters a noble household, she can only stay in her inner courtyard to guard her courtyard and serve her man for the rest of her life. However, Bai Yuxiao has another secret identity – – a constable in the Justice Department.
The Justice Department of the Daxing Dynasty is divided into two departments – – the public department and the secret department. Those in the public department would have to report for duty daily and patrol the streets to maintain law and order. They apprehend thieves, investigate cases, and draw monthly salaries.
The secret department is as the name described. Reporting for duty is unnecessary and all tasks are carried out in secret. Those in the secret department integrated into the society of the common people and lived their daily lives as ordinary folks. They would only be paid when criminals are caught and although they do not don uniforms of the Justice Department and do not receive monthly salaries, they have the benefit of freedom. Once a criminal is caught, the reward is very substantial.
Bai Yuxiao is a secret constable and no one knows about this except for her Senior Sisters* and her Master* who brought her into the secret service.
(The Master mentioned here is Bai Yuxiao’s martial arts teacher and the Senior Sisters are the sisters who became the Master’s disciples before Bai Yuxiao was accepted as a disciple.)
Initially, when she knew the Wangye would not be in the royal mansion, she had secretly snuck out to investigate a case but did not expect to encounter him.
An attack on the Wangye is not a joke. Who is so brave to go against the Heavenly Family?
Although he was in a poor state at that time, she could recognize him with a glance. She followed him all the way but Wangye did not believe her, so she could not get close to him. After several days, she was finally able to bring him to this thatched cottage hidden in the forest.
To avoid exposing her identity, of course, she would not take the initiative to acknowledge him. It so happened that he was blinded due to the poison and thus this made it convenient for her. When she is outside, she usually uses a pseudonym, and since her name has a lot of ‘water,’ so she used ‘Shui’er’ as her name.
(Her name has a lot of ‘water’ – Her name Bai Yuxiao, the middle name Yu means rain and the word has four dots in the Chinese character that are usually referred to as ‘water droplets’. Therefore she named herself Shui’er which literarily means Water-child.)
Looking at the Wangye’s desperate urgency, she really did not expect that a man who is usually cold-hearted and without emotions would act like he has not been with a woman for three years once he is poisoned.
After she entered his royal mansion and became his concubine, except for that wedding night in the bridal chamber, this man did not enter her chamber ever again. She did not expect that the next time they do this kind of deed, it would be in such a situation.
He really has no conscience!
Ai, ai, ai…….just consider this as her misfortune! Who told her to willingly offer herself to be eaten up by him?!
