Chapter 20 Thousand mile Jiaolu Part 5
The heavy rain did not clear until the morning, and the sun was shining through the windows.
Yan Changqing closed his eyes tightly and laid motionless on the bed. The long eyelashes cast a faint shadow under Yan Changqing’s eyelids, making his face pale as snow. If it weren’t for his chest still slowly rising and falling, he almost seemed like a dead person.
Helian Jue tilted her head. She looked at him carefully for a while, and couldn’t help but say: “He is so good-looking.”
At this moment, she had taken off the big black robe that had covered most of her body on the Jiao Lu River. It revealed a bright brocade dress with pomegranate and red embroidered peony flowers. Her black hair was tied into several small braids and the two braids on both sides were slightly wrapped with two golden sparkles of a diamond bell that jingled with her movements, very crisp and beautiful.
Helian Jue stretched out a white and tender fingertip, wrapping it around the bell-wrapped braid, and continued:
“He looks good,and is awe-inspiring. No wonder you were beaten by the eighty-odd whips of Big Brother, but still had to resist to go and save him overnight.”
Helian Jue said this while looking at Helian Rongchuan’s face. She came over and put on a harmless, well-behaved smiling face:
“Brother Rongchuan, I support you.”
Helian Rongchuan sat at the bedside, his eyes staring at Yan Changqing, who was in a coma. Without looking at her, he coldly said: “Don’t think that because of your sweet honeyed words, I would let you off lightly.”
Helian Jue’s smile went a little stiff: “Second Brother, you should speak rationally! Obviously he emerged from the bottom of the river, and when he came up, he wanted to risk his life to fight. I, I just…”
Helian Jue said the first half aggressively, then her eyes swept towards Helian Rongchuan.
In the second half of the sentence, her eyes suddenly lost their confidence.
Last night, during the raging fire in Jiaolu river, Helian Rongchuan had an expression that could devour people when he picked up the unconscious man. She had played with Helian Rongchuan since she was a child, and she had never seen her second brother have such an expression. For a moment, she even thought that Helian Rongchuan wanted to kill her.
Helian Rongchuan gritted his teeth and said viciously: “It’s just what? It’s just you promised me that you would only rob the ship and not harm even half a hair on his head. And the result? With so many slashes, did he just throw himself forward to be chopped by you?”
Yan Changqing’s large and small stab wounds on his body had been carefully covered by white gauze. Because of the excellent hemostatic medicine, the wounds had stopped bleeding, only a faint blood mark leaked from the white gauze. Despite this, Helian Rongchuan felt that his heart was throbbing with pain.
“Who knew he was so fierce! If you don’t cut him a few times, how can I catch him? I’m afraid I would have been hurt myself.” He Lianjue said, feeling a little wronged:
“He also killed so many of my shadow guards, why don’t you calculate that? I’m Dongyun’s third princess! I was knocked over by him and was almost cut by him. Yet, why are you protecting him as soon as you came over? Am I still not your sister? ”
Seeing Helian Rongchuan not answering, Helian Jue was even more angry. She could not help but mutter:
“Besides, he has been in a coma for so long, wasn’t it because your anesthesia was too——”
Helian Rongchuan glanced over and Helian Jue immediately shut her mouth with self-restraint. Her second brother was usually not a serious person, but occasionally when he was serious, he was not a person. It’s better to clamp down her running mouth when faced with his serious mode.
Yan Changqing frowned slightly as if being bothered by the noise around him.
Helian Rongchuan was overjoyed. He stretched out his hand and gently rubbed Yan Changqing’s cheek, calling him: “Changqing?”
This soft call, Helian Jue almost shivered with goose bumps. Having lived for 16 years, she had never seen the frivolous Second Prince Dongyun lowering himself like a concubine. Just when she was about to get up to take a look, Helian Rongchuan poked her nose with a finger.
Helian Jue looked at the direction of the door pointed by the tip of his finger, and had no choice but to curl her lips. She shrugged her shoulders, then tiptoed silently, her tinkling bells silent for once..
Yan Changqing’s eyelashes trembled a few times, then slowly opened his eyes.
Helian Rongchuan smiled slightly, lowered his head, and said softly:
“Finally awake? Good, I will help you up. Are you hungry? Drink medicine first and eat something later, okay?”
He said that as he was going to help Yan Changqing up, but Yan Changqing turned slightly to his side.
Helian Rongchuan was taken aback. With a smile still on his face, he said: “Why are you not being good?”
Yan Changqing said nothing, his black and white eyes only looked at him quietly.
“Are you angry?”
Helian Rongchuan said: “You killed so many of our masters, we only hurt you a few times, you are not at a loss right? Why are you still angry?”
Yan Changqing’s chest heaved violently. He lifted the quilt and jumped down. But as soon as he landed on the ground, he suddenly felt his head swim heavily, listing forward.. As if he was stepping on cotton, his body fell down.
Helian Rongchuan seemed to have expected it. He stretched out his hand to catch Yan Changqing’s leg, and his back fell against Helian Rongchuan’s chest. This extremely ambiguous posture made Yan Changqing extremely angry. With wind in his palm, his hand slashed out with a chop. However, he had woken up from an injury and his muscle condition was so bad that Helian Rongchuan grabbed both of his wrists into his palms with almost no effort.
“Let go! Get lost!” Yan Changqing roared furiously, struggling violently. The white gauze on his body instantly oozed a bright red.
Helian Rongchuan looked at him like his heart was having its air drawn out. He grabbed Yan Changqing’s wrist without daring to exert too much effort, for fear that he would tear his wound again. It took quite a while before he carried Yan Changqing back to the bed.
“I have said that you should drink the medicine first. Look at you, your wounds are open again.”
Yan Changqing glared at Helian Rongchuan’s face silently, wishing to poke two holes in Helian Rongchuan with his eyes.
“You planned it long ago, didn’t you?”
From Yaocheng, no, from the beginning. The man in front of him had planned everything. So Da Yan would know their whereabouts and set a trap early. Thats why they would hand over the temper snow stones with no fuss. It’s just because he had already planned for the next move.
Helian Rongchuan touched his chin. Without raising his eyes, he opened his mouth and said, “Yes.”
Yan Changqing took a deep breath, gritted his teeth, and continued to ask: “The twenty ships of temper snow stones, how many have you robbed?”
Helian Rongchuandid not blink and he said lightly, “All.”
Thinking of Helian Rongchuan’s confession, Yan Changqing was taken aback. His heart burst into flames. But when he raised his hand, he was caught by something. It turned out to be an iron lock, which was similar to the one he locked Helian Rongchuan with. It was firmly gripping his right hand.
“Helian Rongchuan! How dare you!”
Helian Rongchuan leaned down. His body pressed so tightly that his face almost touched the tip of Yan Changqing’s nose. He was not afraid that Yan Changqing’s teeth would rattle at this time, and said: “Yesterday, didn’t you lock me in the same way at night? What did you mean by saying sorry to me when you were on the boat ?
“Did you like me and felt regret and said sorry?”
