Wife, You Can't Run After Eating - Chapter 16
Ye Weiyang never thought Feng Zhiyao could be so bold. She unexpectedly whispered in his ear, “I’m not afraid because you’re here!”
These ambiguous words caused Ye Weiyang’s white, handsome cheeks to unnaturally turn into two red clouds.
“Cough… cough… Act like I didn’t ask!” When Ye Weiyang saw the narrowing eyes of his Master, Ye Canghai, on him, he quickly coughed a few times to cover up his embarrassment.
“Weiyang, in that case, you stay here and protect the girl. It’s only for a month, so it’ll be over in a blink of an eye. There’s something else your teacher has to do. I’ll leave first!” Ye Canghai raised his hand and wiped his greasy mouth while his eyes flickered as if he thought of something. He walked to Ye Weiyang and patted his shoulder.
“Old man, What do I do if your apprentice doesn’t listen to me?” When Feng Zhiyao saw Ye Canghai was about to leave, she quickly thought of a big problem.
“Little disciple Weiyang?” Ye Canghai struck Ye Weiyang with a stroke of his hand which left him immediately in pain.
“Master… I understand!” Damn it, it’s all this woman’s fault! She made his Master scold him.
Ye Canghai nodded his head and put away his silver xiao1 with a flourish. Then, he immediately leapt onto the roof and nimbly vaulted over the walls, leaving Begonia Garden.
“Ye Weiyang, this is an order from your beloved Master. Be obedient and do as you’re told!” When Feng Zhiyao thought about how there would be a beautiful man to eat tonight, her delicate, pink face was filled with excitement which added a glow to her pretty little face. She blinked her intelligent, moist eyes, and her voice was very sweet when she spoke to Weiyang.
“Hmph!” Well, since it is his Master’s order, he was willing to endure it! Master was right, it was only a month! As a real man of character 2 , he should be able to adapt to various situations!
“Ziyun, hurry! Go to the cellar to get the ice cubes. After dinner, we’ll have some thirst-quenching desserts!” Feng Zhiyao looked up at the scorching sun and then turned her attention to the beautiful man next to her. Her thoughts quickly wandered from one to another.
After Ziyun received the order, she quickly went to the cellar.
“Woman, stop staring at me all the time!” It was the first time that Ye Weiyang was being observed for a long time by a girl. This caused his face to become red and redder by the minute which made him look like a steamed crab. Feng Zhiyao thought it was more interesting this way, and she became ever more enthusiastic. She took a good look at him and wanted to see how long this man could hold his composure.
“Ye Weiyang, your name sounds nice. But oh, by the way, don’t address me as woman. I have a name too. I’m Feng Zhiyao. Feng as in changing like the winds, the Zhi as in beautiful flowers by the shore, and the Yao as in Yaolin Qiongshu 3 . You can call me Yao’er like my father does since it’ll be simpler!” Feng Zhiyao played with a few errant strands of silk on her chest and smiled brightly.
“Yao… Yao’er… ” According to his Master’s orders, he had to listen to her orders which is why he said so. However, why was it that when he enunciated her name, his eyes immediately became fixated on her delicate face? Is there something wrong with him?
“How obedient!” Feng Zhiyao laughed happily.
When Ye Weiyang heard those words, he immediately sucked in his lips and wished for the Ziyun yatou to come back quickly. He didn’t want to be with this girl by himself!
“Eldest Miss, I’ve brought the ice cubes!” Just then, Ziyun hurriedly scampered over with a huge, silver bowl.
“Okay, wait a minute and you’ll be lucky enough to eat something good!”
Lucky enough to eat good food? When Ye Weiyang heard her state that, the corner of his lips curved up slightly to form a slight smile. Would he also get a share?
The night was cool like water, and the scenery in the mansion was exquisite. Amidst the bamboo forest, the fragrance of flowers permeated. A crystal-clear stream flowed through the garden, which under the moonlight, shimmered in gleaming silver hues. The light was clear and the night brought with it a light breeze.
After dinner, in the main house of the Begonia Garden, Feng Zhiyao handed Ziyun and Ye Weiyang each a bowl of shaved ice with green bean topping.
“Eldest Miss, is this what you spent three hours making?” Ziyun sniffed it, and it turned out to be very fragrant and pleasant-smelling. It seemed like it would be delicious. It also radiated a sparkling glow and made her subconsciously move her finger towards it.
“Yes, eat it quickly. I only made enough to serve three people! Ye Weiyang, you eat too! It’s quite nutritious you know!” ‘Eat, eat fast!’ she thought. It hadn’t been easy to set up a bait, but she finally did it in hopes that he would fall for it. Then, she could do whatever she wants with him, and he would end up in the palms of her hands. She hoped he would eat it, so that his “younger brother 4 ” could show them both a glory worth dying for!
Thinking about this, Feng Zhiyao’s eyes flickered and her smiling face became more charming and attentive.
Ye Weiyang’s hands trembled a little when he took the bowl and spoon. This was the first time that a girl has made food for him.
He looked down at the ethereal shaved ice and saw that in the midst of the greenery, a few flakes were slowly drifting downwards. The base was lotus-shaped, carved from a watermelon. It was so lifelike that it made people salivate as soon as they laid their eyes upon it.
When Feng Zhiyao encouraged him to eat it, he first frowned slightly before scooping up a spoonful with the silver spoon and put it gently into his mouth. Ah, it tasted ever so cold and delicious. He didn’t care about Feng Zhiyao’s pressing gaze on him anymore and ate it all in one go.
Why was Feng Zhiyao staring so pressingly at Ye Weiyang? Well, it was because she was afraid that he wouldn’t eat it at all, and then her “heartfelt” gesture would be in vain!
But bingo! He really ate it! Yay! Yay! She could now properly enjoy the fruits of his labor tonight. She just didn’t know if he has any experience in that area…
Ziyun couldn’t understand why her Eldest Miss looked at Mister Ye in the same way that a hunter would look at their prey. It seemed that it was inevitable, and she had thought she had seen wrong!
“Ziyun, don’t keep staring at me. Eat it quickly and then once you are done, go rest. I don’t need you to serve me right now! Er… at the end of the day, you seem pretty tired too.” Feng Zhiyao smiled in such a manner as to make her look empathetic and thoughtful. In reality, she had put a sleeping medicine into Ziyun’s bowl which would make her fall into a deep slumber and not wake up until tomorrow.
“Oh, okay. Miss, the green bean shaved ice that you made is really tasty!” Ziyun finished eating obediently and took the three bowls and spoons to the kitchen.
“Ye Weiyang, why don’t you say anything?” Feng Zhiyao watched him caress the tassel on the scabbard of the spirit snake sword and wondered ‘Why hasn’t the medicine taken effect yet?’
“Yao’er, that… that shaved ice… it was delicious!” Ye Weiyang’s face reddened and stammered out those words when he saw Feng Zhiyao was staring at him.
“Okay, is that the only thing you have to say?” Feng Zhiyao gently approached him. She seemed to lift his arm inadvertently and touched his buttocks.
“Gah?” What should he say? Ye Weiyang didn’t dare to look at her because he felt like there was an inexplicable fire fiercely spreading in his chest. It was tangible and growing by the second!
Bah! This dense, doltish goose doesn’t even understand his own amorous feelings! It looks like she’ll just have to remind him!
“Weiyang, do you think I’m pretty?” Feng Zhiyao smiled sweetly, and her eyes were full of longing. She looked as charming as a fairy.
At that moment, Feng Zhiyao didn’t know the allure of her own smile, which was so stunning that it could make people fall into a boundless daze.
Ye Weiyang’s beautiful eyes were getting darker and darker, with a crazed look growing in his eyes as he unconsciously stared at Feng Zhiyao’s delicate, luscious lips. His heart was beating violently, and he could feel a primordial desire well up in his heart. He wanted to taste those soft, sweet lips…
No, no, no. He couldn’t do that. Before his Master left, he instructed him to be Yao’er’s personal bodyguard. How could he belittle her?
Ye Weiyang tenaciously resisted the accumulating heat in his body, but his flawless, handsome face was as red as the morning glow. At that moment, Feng Zhiyao knew as clearly as day that the medicine was finally taking effect on Ye Weiyang!
