Helian Rongchuan’s brain was running fast, knowing that he could not drag it any longer, he frowned, exhaled suddenly, and coughed violently. 

Cough cough cough! Cough cough cough! 

Helian Rongchuan felt that he was about to cough up his heart, liver, spleen and lungs. As he coughed, he thought nervously, shouldn’t a person who almost suffocated cough like this? He should be quite similar? 

Yan Changqing stared at Helian Rongchuan who “resurrected from the dead” in a daze. After a while, he suddenly stretched out his arms and hugged Helian Rongchuan tightly. 

He hugged him hard as if he was afraid that Helian Rongchuan would disappear as soon as he let go. 

At this moment, Helian Rongchuan was also stunned and even forgot to pretend to be coughing. After staying like this for a long time, he reacted, awkwardly holding Yan Changqing’s shoulder. 

Helian Rongchuan found that Yan Changqing’s arms were shaking slightly uncontrollably. 

But he was obviously a brave and powerful person, who was even fearless in the face of a wolf attack. 

“I’m okay.” Helian Rongchuan touched Yan Changqing’s head somewhat at a loss: “Really.”

Yan Changqing raised his head and looked at Helian Rongchuan, suddenly realizing his misstep, and quickly struggled away from Helian Rongchuan. 

Helian Rongchuan smiled, his amber eyes watching Yan Changqing tenderly. 

Helian Rongchuan suddenly felt less guilty, and instead, was filled with a huge sweetness. It was because Yan Changqing’s nervous and abnormal actions just now completely betrayed his heart. 

Moreover, Yan Changqing, whose eyes were reddish and was a little annoyed and embarrassed, was so cute. 

Helian Rongchuan sighed softly in his heart, stretched out his hand to pinch Yan Changqing’s chin, and gently kissed his lips. 

Yan Changqing immediately wanted to hide subconsciously, but his struggle evoked Helian Rongchuan’s desire to conquer. Helian Rongchuan grabbed the back of Yan Changqing’s head and deepened the kiss with a gesture that could not be denied. 

Yan Changqing’s face flushed instantly, and the great sadness and joy he experienced in a short period made him unable to react for a while. Helian Rongchuan’s fiery eyes were so firm and gentle, making him even more at a loss.     

Helian Rongchuan smiled, taking advantage of Yan Changqing’s rare hesitation at this moment, and pressed his shoulders down on the ground full of fresh green grass. Helian Rongchuan lowered his head and gently kissed Yan Changqing’s soft lips.

Yan Changqing’s ears were red, and his whole body was a little stiff. He nervously braced his nerves and unconsciously put his hand on Helian Rongchuan’s shirt. Across the thin clothes, he felt Helian Rongchuan’s violent heartbeat in his palm.     

So majestic and powerful.     

In this thumping heartbeat, Yan Changqing slowly calmed down. He suddenly raised his head and looked at Helian Rongchuan.     


Yan Changqing’s hand was about to move suddenly. Helian Rongchuan raised his eyes and faced Yan Changqing’s slightly squinted, sharp black eyes with a colour of suspicion.     

Helian Rongchuan had no injuries at all. And as soon as he woke up, he kissed and hugged him. The eyes that looked at him were shining brighter than the ferocious white wolf just now.     

How could it look like someone who just passed out?     

Helian Rongchuan: “???” 

Helian Rongchuan with a guilty conscience was seen through by Yan Changqing. He, who had always been glib, stammered for the first time:     

“Thii…thiii… this time, I didn’t swindle you!”     

Ha! !! There is no three hundred taels here! (reveal what one intends to hide)     

Yan Changqing’s heart suddenly became clear, and he pushed him away, angrily:     

“You have a thief’s guilt!” 

Helian Rongchuan, being with Yan Changqing for a long time, understood Yan Changqing’s habits. As soon as he saw Yan Changqing lift his knee, he realized that Yan Changqing was 80% going to kick him, so he quickly stepped aside flexibly.

Unexpectedly, Yan Changqing just got up from the ground, fixed the clothes that had been unbuttoned by Helian Rongchuan without saying a word, and sat in a corner hugging his knees. He only left a view of his back for Helian Rongchuan. 

Under the oblique cast of light and shadow, this figure looked a little round. 

With great grief and joy, Yan Changqing only felt that his heart was in a mess and he couldn’t tell what it was feeling. He just wanted to find a quiet corner to sulk. 

He was angry with himself and Helian Rongchuan. 

Helian Rongchuan thought that Yan Changqing was deceived by him again, and he would become angry, but he did not expect that Yan Changqing would just sit aside and say nothing to him. He couldn’t help but wonder what it meant? Could it be that Yan Changqing was really annoyed and didn’t even want to bother to talk to him? 

Or is it that he already understood what he wanted for himself, but was just embarrassed to show it? 

Helian Rongchuan was about to come to coax him and ask what was going on but suddenly heard a horse neigh high above his head. 

The two looked up at the same time, only to see a horse’s head exposed in a large pit as deep as a dozen feet. Shuang Zhui was lying outside the pit, looking for his master in the cave a little anxiously. 

Helian Rongchuan raised his head and pointed at Shuang Zhui and cursed: “Good, you only care about yourself and don’t care whether your master is dead or alive, I really wasted all those carrots on you!”

Shuang Zhui was very human/ Knowing that Helian Rongchuan was blaming it, it immediately retracted with some fear, only showing two pointed ears and a pair of round eyes, looking pitifully into the pit.

Yan Changqing knew that Helian Rongchuan had deliberately used an excuse to change the subject, and he didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. He looked around. The pit was extremely deep and the space in the cave was very spacious. The walls were large with small cracks. It seemed that only a little strength needed to be used for it to collapse. It was impossible to climb upwards just using one’s strength.     

Yan Changqing’s fingers groped around the uneven wall of the pit, and he couldn’t help but feel a little surprised. This pit looked like it was formed by a natural collapse, but how could such a big hole collapse on this nice grassland? 

But no matter how the pit was formed, Yan Changqing understood that it was basically impossible to come out with his strength at this time. The only way is to wait for someone to get a rope to rescue them.

Helian Rongchuan and Yan Changqing thought of it together. He blew a whistle and saw Shuang Zhui immediately prick his ears and stick his head out again. 

“Good Shuang Zhui!” Yan Changqing shouted at Shuang Zhui: “Don’t worry about us, go back to the city and bring people, you know what to do.” 

Shuang Zhui’s eyes lit up, and he snorted his nose quite loudly, meaning that he understood, and immediately disappeared at the entrance of the hole. 

The sound of horse hooves faded away. Yan Changqing estimated that a round trip from here to Qinchuan City would take about a day and a night, and he couldn’t help frowning with some worry. 

“I know you are in a hurry, but…”

Helian Rongchuan patted Yan Changqing on the shoulder: “Think about it, the great witch-doctor finally got so many boys and girls to water the flowers, for a while, he would be reluctant to kill him. As soon as we come out, we will speed up and rescue them immediately. I think we will make it.” 

Yan Changqing nodded. He knew Helian Rongchuan was coaxing him, but what he said did make sense. 

Helian Rongchuan continued: “Then I will hang the great witch doctor, beat him into a dog’s tail flower, and then take off his pants, then let him kowtow to all the people naked and apologize. Let’s see if he would dare to act all might again!” 

Yan Changqing glanced at Helian Rongchuan a little speechlessly. This man, as expected, once he speaks more than three sentences, he could not maintain being serious. 

Helian Rongchuan looked at him: “Changqing, you’re not angry?” 

Yan Changqing realized that the account that Helian Rongchuan had just pretended to be dead hadn’t been settled, so he turned his head and didn’t want to pay attention to him. 

Helian Rongchuan leaned over, cheekily: “Changqing?” 

Yan Changqing turned away, responding with the silent back of his head. 

Helian Rongchuan shifted his position and tilted his head to look at him: “Big treasure? Big darling, look at me? Give me some face?” 

Yan Changqing still said nothing, but the tips of his ears began to redden again. 

Helian Rongchuan was amused secretly in his heart and moved closer. He pressed close to Yan Changqing’s ear, and lowered his voice: “Baby?” 

Yan Changqing hurriedly flashed aside as if he was scalded suddenly. His face flushed, and he glared at him: “Don’t speak nonsense!!!” 

Helian Rongchuan laughed loudly: “So you will only respond if I call you baby. Okay, I will remember that!” 

Yan Changqing only felt that the goosebumps all over his body had been caused by Helian Rongchuan calling out the word “baby”. He hurriedly said, “Don’t remember that!”

Helian Rongchuan smirked, “Then what do you want me to call you? Call you “General Yan” like everyone else? It’s too boring. If I call you ‘Changqing’, when you get angry, you just ignore it. Calling you ‘Big treasure’, you would be unhappy. I think it’s best to call you ‘Baby’. It’s intimate, cute and catchy!” 

Yan Changqing was anxious. The title of “big treasure” made him feel ashamed. If he allowed others to know that he, a grand general, was called “baby”, Helian Rongchuan might as well beat him to death! 

“No!” Yan Changqing made a decisive decision. 

“This is not okay, that’s not okay.” Helian Rongchuan frowned and sat on the ground, suddenly his eyes lit up: “Why don’t I call your pet name?” 

Yan Changqing was taken aback and shook his head: “Pet name? I don’t have any.” 

Helian Rongchuan: “Liar, how could you not have a pet name? When you were a child, what did your mother call you?” 

Yan Changqing thought about it seriously and said: “She called me my name. ”     


Helian Rongchuan looked at Yan Changqing’s honest expression, and couldn’t believe it: “My mother only called my name when she rolled up her sleeves, preparing to beat me.” 

Yan Changqing asked incomprehensibly: “Do all children have pet names?” 

Helian Rongchuan nodded, “Of course, if you are usually called by your parents by your actual name, wouldn’t it have the feeling that your parents are going to get violent all the time? Too scary!” 

Yan Changqing muttered: “But my mother has never beat me.”

Yan Changqing’s mother was buried with his father when he passed away in battle and when Yan Changqing was seven years old. Over the past ten years or so, Yan Changqing’s impression of his mother had been very vague. He only remembered that she came from a family of military commanders, had a strong personality, and taught him in a harsh and upright manner. But after Helian Rongchuan mentioned it, Yan Changqing suddenly realized that although his mother was harsh on him, she had never beat him.

Although he had never been called by a pet name by his mother, his mother actually had a gentle side. 

Helian Rongchuan saw Yan Changqing distracted, but there was a faint tenderness in his eyes. He couldn’t help being a little curious. He leaned over and squeezed his face: “What did you think about?” 

Yan Changqing was in a better mood. He had forgotten why he was angry. He just gently pushed Helian Rongchuan’s hand away, and said, “Then what is your pet name?” 

Helian Rongchuan pouted, “When I was a child, I was in a poor mountain region. When a poor person gave birth to a child, they all say ‘a cheap name would live well’.” 

Yan Changqing couldn’t help but wonder: “What do you mean?” 

He grew up in the palace and had never heard of this. 

“Don’t you know?” Helian Rongchuan sat cross-legged and said vividly: “It is said that when a child is born, they have to walk around the ghost gate (h*ll). Of course, princes and nobles have a golden fate and of course, they are not afraid. But the poor are different. To pass the barrier, they need to have a cheap, lowly name. The more unpleasant the better. Even if a ghost saw it, they would dislike it. Naturally, they will not take the child’s soul away.” 

“Even a ghost would dislike it?” Yan Changqing heard it with relish: “Then what is the lowly name?” 

“Hey, it’s nothing. Just either dog leftover, a dog egg, a black baby, a black egg, a silly root, two pillars and the like—” 

Helian Rongchuan didn’t finish speaking, and Yan Changqing suddenly couldn’t help but laugh out loud. 

All kinds of strange name combinations were suddenly floating uncontrollably in his mind: Helian black egg, Helian dog leftover, Helian silly root, Helian two pillars…

Yan Changqing was always cold and cheerless. It was the first time Helian Rongchuan had seen him laughing like this. He found that Yan Changqing was very beautiful with a smile, and his eyes were slightly bent as if there were stars in them. Helian Rongchuan looked at him, only feeling that the flowers that were full in his heart were blooming. 

“Wow, you must have secretly called me Helian dog egg in your heart, didn’t you!” Helian Rongchuan suddenly rushed to hug Yan Changqing, pretending to be angry: “I’m angry! Let me kiss you quickly, otherwise, I can’t calm down!”     

This person, here he goes again! Yan Changqing couldn’t laugh or cry. After struggling to get free a few times, he didn’t break away, so he tilted his neck back, trying to avoid Helian Rongchuan’s passionate kiss: “Don’t make trouble…Uh!”     

Helian Rongchuan raised his head and looked at him with a smile. A small row of teeth marks appeared on Yan Changqing’s neck, and he tried to kiss him again: “My exclusive mark!”     

Yan Changqing covered his neck and stared at him: “Are you a dog?!”     

“I am not a dog, I am a dog egg.” Helian Rongchuan said without embarrassment: “One mark is not enough, here comes another one.” He squinted his eyes, and his eyes fell on Yan Changqing’s chest.     

Yan Changqing was shocked and turned around to hide. But how could Helian Rongchuan be willing to let him go? He bound the person from behind, and his hands were not honest!     

Yan Changqing was not polite this time, and immediately grabbed Helian Rongchuan’s arm with his, trying to use the momentum to lax his strength. Helian Rongchuan froze for a moment, flashed by, and smiled: “Okay, then I won’t be polite!”

Helian Rongchuan’s small abacus in his heart was being slapped. Relying on his strength to fight, he may be slightly inferior to Yan Changqing, but Yan Changqing was reluctant to hit him ruthlessly. His mind was simple and he couldn’t deceive him at all. So, he won!     

Helian Rongchuan ran while hiding, blocking Yan Changqing’s several moves, seemingly unable to parry. Yan Changqing finally grabbed his evil hand and twisted it back.

Helian Rongchuan immediately yelled. 

Yan Changqing was no longer fooled, and continued to hold him, shouting: “Still pretending!” 

Helian Rongchuan immediately behaved, turned his head and said, “Not pretending, not pretending! General Yan is great, General Yan is mighty, and this prince has lost. I lost, a crushing defeat!” 

Yan Changqing snorted softly, and said, “Do you know what you did wrong?” 

“I know.” Helian Rongchuan drooped his head. 

Yan Changqing thought that he had to properly punish him this time, so he continued: “Do you dare do it again next time?” 

Helian Rongchuan lowered his head even lower and mumbled. Yan Changqing didn’t hear clearly, so he said angrily: “I’m asking you, will you dare do it again next time?” 

“Next time— ” Helian Rongchuan suddenly raised his head, his eyes brightened, and he made a sudden rush towards Yan Changqing. “Next time, I still dare!” 

Yan Changqing:! !! 

Yan Changqing was caught off guard by Helian Rongchuan’s sudden attack, and he was immediately pushed against the earth wall. Fortunately, Helian Rongchuan protected the back of his head with his hands in advance. 

Helian Rongchuan’s mouth evoked a smirk of success, and he was about to bow his head to kiss him when suddenly he heard the sound of sand and rock about to crack! 

The pit was collapsing again! !! 

Helian Rongchuan didn’t even think about it, he protected Yan Changqing under him, and blocked the cracked sand with his back!
