The coldness of the sword immediately made Zu An break out into goosebumps.
Venerable hero, do you want money, or do you want… me We can talk it out! Please dont let your hand slip!”
Meanwhile, he secretly prepared Grandgale to teleport away.
A snicker sounded from behind him.
“Money is something I can understand, but as for the latter… is that really something you can provide”
“A woman” Zu An immediately released a breath of relief when he heard this altered voice.
He might have been a bit worried if a man came to assassinate him, but girls were his field of specialty!
“Venerable heroine, this is where Ill have to disagree.
You can insult my integrity, but you cannot insult my handsome face!” Zu An said with a firm expression.
“Pah, what a slick tongue you have.
No wonder that slut Qiu Honglei fell for you.” Following a light sound, the blade by his neck was put away.
Only now did Zu An carefully turn around.
A masked woman limped over to his bed, and then slowly sat down.
When she sat down, a great wave rippled across her chest.
“Big…” Zu An gulped his saliva.
He couldnt help but subconsciously blurt this out.
Even though there really might be something wrong with some parts of his brain, normally, there was no way he would lose his composure like this.
But her stealth bodysuit was just too tight! Her enchanting figure was just too much!
He knew that he was in trouble as soon as these words came out of his mouth.
Sure enough, the masked womans eyes grew cold.
“What did you say”
“I was just saying that there seems to be some… big jealousy from lady Peis words.” Zu An reacted quickly, immediately turning things around.
He could instantly tell who she was from her peace blossom eyes and massive chest even if she was masked.
“Me Jealous” Pei Mianman removed her mask, casually tossing it to the side.
A mischievous smile appeared on her face.
“Perhaps I seem a bit...
too nice to you”
Zu An immediately felt a weight lifted off his shoulders when he saw her change the topic.
I seem to have forgotten that sometimes, those who are too outstanding will easily misunderstand like this.”
Pei Mianman harrumphed.
“How in the world does Chuyan put up with you.”
“You went to Chuyans room” Zu An immediately panicked.
He was busy with treatment, so how could he have paid attention to the activity outside The security outside was tight, however, so unless she had an instant movement skill like him, she shouldnt have escaped their detection.
“I didnt.” Pei Mianmans expression became strange.
She didnt visit her close friend and instead looked for her husband… That was why she hurriedly added, “I heard that she hasnt been feeling that well, so I didnt want to bother her tonight.”
After saying this, she suddenly frowned.
Her body twisted unnaturally.
“Youre wounded” Zu An noticed that her movements were a bit stiff before.
Now, he finally reacted to what was going on.
“Hmph! I came all the way to save you, but you just ran with that vixen! You left me to deal with that sixth rank Chen Xuan and all those Blackwind Stockade subordinates alone! Do you really have the nerve to ask me this right now” Pei Mianman immediately erupted in fury, angry at Qiu Honglei, angry at Zu An for actually leaving with her.
You have successfully trolled Pei Mianman for 66 66 66…
Zu An was immediately ashamed.
“I really didnt think Qiu Honglei would drag me into the water with her back then! Everything happened so quickly… by the time I reacted to what happened, I was already choking on water! Afterwards, the two of us headed ashore.
When I finally had a chance to turn around, I saw that the two of you seemed evenly-matched.
The city defense army was on their way too, so I didnt want to come back and only cause more trouble for you.”
He naturally left out the part when Qiu Honglei fed him oxygen.
He already pissed off his wife, he didnt want to piss off a second girl.
Thank god he wiped out the lipstick mark before he came back, or else today really might have been his funeral.
“Hmph, at least you had a bit of a conscience.” Hearing that he at least paid some attention to the situation, Pei Mianmans face loosened a bit.
“But Chen Xuan is still a sixth rank cultivator.
Against someone like this, youll be fortunate to get out alive, so a bit of injury is nothing.”
Zu Ans eyes widened.
“Where did you get hurt I have medicine.”
That damn Phoenix Nirvana Sutra always put him on the brink of death.
After he made some money, he immediately stocked up on healing medicine, among these medicines no lack of Ji Dengtus best stuff.
“You are asking me where I got hurt, but why do you keep staring at my chest” There was a dangerous glint mixed in with Pei Mianmans smile.
Zu Ans eyes flushed red.
He immediately replied, “I just wanted to know where you were injured out of concern!”
“Stop guessing, its not where you think it is.” A ruminate expression lingered in Pei Mianmans eyes.
“Just how did Chuyan end up liking a scoundrel like you I really just cannot understand! Its not even just her, that fox Qiu Honglei seems quite fond of you too.
I dont see a single exceptional aspect from you.”
Zu An smiled bashfully.
“I am someone with more introverted qualities.
Youll have to be around me more to find out my strong points.”
“You Introverted qualities” Pei Mianman immediately burst out laughing, but after laughing a few times, her injuries flared out.
Her beautiful brows furrowed.
“Your back is hurt” Zu An already picked up from the previous signs where she was injured.
After all, if we were talking about getting hurt, he was already a true professional.
“Mm,” Pei Mianman voiced in confirmation.
But when she saw that he was about to examine her himself, she immediately raised her sword.
“Its none of your business.
A small wound like this isnt an issue at all.”
Zu An was startled and amused.
This woman was always behaving so flirtatiously, but she was actually this reserved inside!
“Itll leave a scar if we dont treat it quickly.” Zu An warned.
Pei Mianma sneered.
“Do you think Im like one of those dainty little girls Cultivators are different from ordinary people, and Ive always recovered quickly.
Ive lost count of how many times Ive been injured since childhood.
Do you see any of those wounds scarring”
“Id originally assumed you were a precious daughter doted on by a great family, but it seems like you had it quite hard.” Lin Xi was shocked when he heard that she suffered so many injuries during her childhood.
It really was hard for him to imagine this from her usually cheerful and flirtatious bearing.
Pei Mianmans smile instantly vanished.
“I dont need your sympathy!”
Zu An didnt seem to mind at all after seeing her change in attitude.
“Dont worry, I wont tell Chuyan about this.”
“Why do I care if you talk about this with her or not” Pei Mianman turned to the side, but her expression relaxed a bit.
“We still have to take care of the wound as soon as possible.” Zu An flipped through his drawers and trunks.
“We cant underestimate a wound from a sixth rank expert.
Chuyan is the best example.
Because of her negligence, there are some hidden injuries left from her fight against that Wu Di.”
“Chuyans condition is actually that serious” Pei Mianmans expression immediately became complicated.
“Its not too bad.
With a divine physician like yours truly, its not a big deal at all!” replied Zu An.
“You” Pei Mianman sneered.
“It was clearly Divine Physician Ji who paid a visit.”
“Life is truly lonesome and desolate like the snow… no one believes me when I speak the truth.” Zu An picked a few types of medicine.
“Turn around so I can take a look at your injury.”
Pei Mianman hesitated a bit, but she still turned around in the end.
Her tone became a bit coquettish as she said, “You better not be thinking of taking advantage of me, or else I wont let you off easy even if youre Chuyans husband!”
“Look at how pure my eyes are! Do I really seem like that type of person” Zu An was immediately discontent.
Zu An discovered a three inch long wound on her back, the area around it already soaked in blood.
It was only because of her black bodysuit that it wasnt too obvious.
“That son of a dog Chen Xuan, arent you a bit too vicious!”
“Hmph, he isnt anything special.” Pei Mianman raised her chin arrogantly.
She clearly didnt want to be underestimated.
“Yeah yeah yeah, I know youre really strong and awesome.” Zu An gently tore off the clothes around that wound.
“What are you doing!” Pei Mianmans entire body went rigid.
She gripped her sword even more tightly.
“Relax! How can I apply the medicine if I dont clean up the area around the wound” Zu An replied.
“Dont worry, I wont go so far as to bully my wifes close friend in her very house.”
“Heh, I knew you wouldnt have the guts to do something like that.” Seeing that he didnt go any further, Pei Mianman loosened up a bit.
Zu An dabbed some medicine, gently cleaning up the wound.
“Does it hurt”
Keep going.” Pei Mianman frowned, clearly enduring the pain.
The room quickly became quiet.
Only the sounds of Zu An treating her wound could be heard.
This was the first time her skin was directly touched like this by a man.
Pei Mianmans face blushed slightly.
But being shy really wasnt her style, so soon afterwards, she laughed proudly and said, “Whos skin is better between me and Chuyan”
Zu An smiled and said, “Do you want me to tell you that your skin is better than my wifes, or that my wifes skin is a bit better than yours”
When she saw Zu An kick the ball right back at her, Pei Mianman harrumphed.
“Hmph, you really are cunning like a fox.
If I wasnt so sure that you grew up in Brightmoon City, I really would have wondered if you came out of some old monster.”
Zu An became a bit stunned when he heard her words. I kinda did possess this body like an old monster… no, at least Im a small monster.
I was still young in my past world.
When the treatment was completed, Zu An said, “All done.
However, you lost a lot of blood, so your body is extremely weak right now.
Dont go too crazy tonight and just stay here.
Otherwise, if you ended up getting attacked by some scoundrel, then my heart really wouldnt be able to take it.”
Pei Mianmans eyes flickered with a teasing radiance.
“Why do I feel like Ill be in more danger if I stay here”
“Even if you dont trust my integrity, you should trust Chuyans judgment in picking her husband.
Im going to sleep next door, so youre on your own.
You can leave whenever you want.”
After a bit of hesitation, she said, “Dont tell Chuyan about what happened today… dont tell any of her family members either.”
Zu An couldnt help but laugh.
“This is just some normal affair, why does it suddenly seem like some scandal Dont worry, itll remain a secret between us.”
“I never should have expected any good words to come from the mouth of a scoundrel!” Pei Mianman spat out, shutting the door in his face.
Zu An immediately became depressed.
Should this woman at least let him grab some blankets
But for someone with his current constitution, blankets already didnt make a difference.
As such, he didnt feel like knocking on the door again.
He went next door and dragged some stools together.
When he was just about to lie down to sleep, his heart jumped.
Someone suddenly appeared beside him.
