A few screams, and it scared off several magpies that were playing on some branches.

Yan Changqing stopped the hand that was holding the needle, frowned slightly, and said, “Does it hurt?” He paused, then looked up at Helian Rongchuan carefully: “This needle is for pain relief. The more serious the injury, the more the acupuncture can relieve the pain, and vice versa. According to your injury, you should feel very comfortable.” 

Helian Rongchuan looked at Yan Changqing’s eyes with suspicion, and swallowed nervously. 

“It doesn’t hurt”. Helian Rongchuan immediately said, “It’s very comfortable, very refreshing.” 

“Then why are you screaming?” Yan Changqing’s brows still did not relax. 

“It’s because it’s so comfortable.” Helian Rongchuan had no choice but to continue to say solemnly: “I can’t help but want to scream when it’s comfortable.” 

Yan Changqing looked at Helian Rongchuan’s expression, and saw that he didn’t look like he was lying, so he relaxed. He said sincerely, “That’s good. Since you feel comfortable, then I’ll give you acupuncture and pain relief every day until you recover.” 

“…????!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!” 

Helian Rongchuan staggered, trying to restrain the urge to hit his head on the ground and slap his mouth. 

Misfortune and good fortune came hand in hand. The thing worth celebrating was that the couple of days that Helian Rongchuan was turned into a cactus, he stayed in Yan Changqing’s room refusing to leave. Yan Changqing seeing that Helian Rongchuan had dismissed his servants in order to keep his identity secret, and was injured and sick, pitied him and did not chase him away and even took the initiative to attend to him.

When night fell, the red candle was burning high, and there were hundreds of night pearls, illuminating the room like daytime. Helian Rongchuan, who had just recovered from being a cactus to a free body, leaned against the window and quietly looked at Yan Changqing’s profile.     

Yan Changqing was seriously studying the long scroll of the art of war that he had not read in the daytime. He lowered his head slightly, and his obsidian-like eyes were extremely focused. The moist light of the night pearl shrouded his upright and meticulous sitting posture, bringing a sense of beauty that was both elegant and solemn. 

From Helian Rongchuan’s point of view, Yan Changqing’s graceful neck line and sunken collarbone could be seen. Looking closely, there seemed to be a red mole on his collarbone. 

Helian Rongchuan felt flames begin to light from the bottom up. He could not help but narrow his eyes slightly. 

“Ha—yawn.” Helian Rongchuan stretched and said, “I’m sleepy, I’m going to sleep.” 

Yan Changqing was pondering the very exquisite art of war with all his heart. Without raising his head, he replied casually: “En.” 

After a while, he raised his head inadvertently and saw Helian Rongchuan sneaking up to his side while he was concentrating on his studies, like a ghost, without making a sound. 

Yan Changqing was startled: “Ah, you—!” 

“Changqing, you are so beautiful.” 

Helian Rongchuan used his arms to hug him around his chest. He squinted his eyes, and slowly looked down Yan Changqing’s meticulous neckline with an expression like a big-tailed wolf seeing a rabbit for the first time: 

“The more I look, the better it becomes.” 

This was not the first time Yan Changqing had heard this. But he still felt a slight fever on his cheeks, and he hurriedly said: “I’m not even a woman, what is there to look good – Aren’t you sleepy, why don’t you go rest?” 

Helian Rongchuan raised his left arm with an innocent look: “I can’t take off my clothes, how can you tell me to sleep?”

Yan Changqing just realized it. He was busy pondering the art of war, but he forgot that Helian Rongchuan’s arm was not healed, and it was inconvenient for him to move. Feeling a little ashamed, he quickly closed the book and stood up. 

“I forgot.” He apologized while helping Helian Rongchuan undress. 

Helian Rongchuan set off big fireworks of joy in his heart. He only dared to think about Yan Changqing taking the initiative to undress and untie his belt in his dreams. Who would have thought that it would come true today! His injury was so worth it! He should have injured both arms! 

Yan Changqing helped Helian Rongchuan take off one of the sleeves of his robe. Seeing his happy expression, his mouth grinning to the base of his ears, he couldn’t help but wonder, “Why are you so happy?” 

Helian Rongchuan said without covering it up: “Because you are helping me undress, that’s why I’m happy. I didn’t expect that I would one day be taken care of by you.” 

Helian Rongchuan didn’t mean to tease him at all. But Yan Changqing didn’t feel upset or disgusted, he just felt a little guilty. In fact, he also somewhat understood that Helian Rongchuan was deliberately pretending to be weak and wanted him to take care of him. However, just by helping him do such a small thing can make him happy like this? 

Helian Rongchuan had done so much for himself, endured unbearable pain that ordinary people could not bear, and almost lost his life. Asking himself, how many things had he done for him wholeheartedly? Was he too indifferent to Helian Rongchuan? Too cold? So much so that his little actions can actually make Helian Rongchuan feel this happy?

But the happier he was, the more Yan Changqing felt ashamed of himself. Then he secretly made up his mind to care a little more about Helian Rongchuan. 

Helian Rongchuan did not understand Yan Changqing’s complicated mood at this time. He looked at Yan Changqing’s drooping eyes, his eyelashes casting a thin gray shadow under his eyelids. He only felt that Yan Changqing lowering his head to help him undress was especially moving. With a fever in his heart, he couldn’t help lowering his head, and taking a quick suck on the red mole on Yan Changqing’s collarbone.

Yan Changqing was startled. He took a step back quickly, and stared at Helian Rongchuan: “You—what are you doing?” 

Helian Rongchuan smiled slightly, revealing a pointed canine: “Kissing you, it’s not like it’s the first time. Why, you don’t want to?” 

Yan Changqing glanced at Helian Rongchuan helplessly, and said, “You are injured and you are still being so dishonest? I think you don’t want to recover.” 

He didn’t look angry. He took a step forward and continued to help Helian Rongchuan take off his robe. 

Helian Rongchuan didn’t expect that Yan Changqing wouldn’t turn his head angrily as usual and leave. He was surprised and happy at the same time. But he was always a person who didn’t know to quit while he was ahead. He only knew that if was given an inch, he would take a foot. The evil tricks in his stomach immediately bubbled up. 

Taking off his robe, revealing the snow-white undergarments, he could already sleep, but Helian Rongchuan stood still. 

“I don’t like wearing clothes when I sleep. I will have to bother you…” Helian Rongchuan was cheeky and pretended to act natural. 

However, Yan Changqing seemed to sense Helian Rongchuan’s bad intentions: “You’re trying to tease me, aren’t you?” 

“Tease you? You’re not a woman, what would I tease you for?” 

Helian Rongchuan raised an eyebrow with a strange expression on his face: “We’re all men, is Lord Yan still shy?” 

Yan Changqing stopped talking and pursed his lips. 

Yes, they were all men. In the past, when marching on the road was difficult, all the soldiers bathed in a river and slept on a soil ridge. What has he not seen? 

Huh, shy? He will not be shy! 

So he continued to help Helian Rongchuan undress. After taking off his shirt, Helian Rongchuan revealed his wheat-colored, sturdy and thick upper body. His chest muscles and abdominal muscles were extremely beautiful, full of masculine charm. Yan Changqing didn’t even look at it, and started to help Helian Rongchuan untie his belt. 

His expression was calm, but he didn’t know that the tips of his ears were getting redder. 

Sure enough, the aggressive method was the most effective for Yan Changqing, who loved his reputation. Helian Rongchuan was amused for a while, but also a little pleased. He continued to tease him: “How is it, how big is it? You haven’t seen such a size before right?”

No matter if the answer was “I have seen one” or “I have not seen one”, to Yan Changqing, he would absolutely not say anything. Yan Changqing’s bright red on the tip of his ears quickly smudged the roots of his neck. He turned his face to the side and held it for a long time before he finally gritted his teeth and said, “You… how?!” 

“Seeing you last time, he stood up to greet you!” Helian Rongchuan boasted shamelessly.

This man—how could he be so shameless! 

Yan Changqing was so angry and embarrassed that he was speechless. Helian Rongchuan, however, was lying on the bed casually, as if he had triumphed. However, when he wanted to pull up the gauze curtain beside the bed, the iron hook holding the gauze tent was on his left side. Helian Rongchuan twisted his body, bent over and couldn’t reach it even a few times. He almost lost his balance and fell off the bed. 

Yan Changqing watched from the side, relieved a little, and couldn’t help but secretly mutter: “Serves you right!” 

But as soon as this thought came up, Yan Changqing immediately regretted it. Helian Rongchuan is clearly in this state for his sake. From Helian Rongchuan’s chest, back, and arms, how many scars were for him? Yet, he even said that this person deserved it? It was too much! 

Yan Changqing’s thoughts at this time, Helian Rongchuan could see through it all. He pretended to strain himself even more, as if he was almost half paralyzed. Frowning his brows, he said feebly, “Oh…it seems to be starting to hurt again…”     

Sure enough, before he could finish speaking, an arm stretched out from behind him. Yan Changqing helped him pull up the gauze curtain, and then supported his back, so he could lie in a very comfortable position on the cushion of the bed. Then, he covered him with a thin quilt.     

Helian Rongchuan opened his eyes and looked at Yan Changqing with a smile.     

Yan Changqing sighed helplessly. He knew that Helian Rongchuan was pretending, but he still asked worriedly, “Does it still hurt? Wei Jin said that your residual poison is not clear, so you should rest well to get better soon.”     

“Wei Jin also said that the patient must remain in a happy mood to get better faster.”     

Helian Rongchuan spread out his long hands and long feet, and put a calf on Yan Changqing’s leg on purpose. He said, “But I am not in a good mood now.”     

Yan Changqing was completely out of temper with Helian Rongchuan acting shamelessly. In the past, he would have only dropped a cold sentence, “Then you can do it yourself.” But he had just made up his mind to take good care of Helian Rongchuan tonight, so he patiently said, “Then what do you want to do?”     

Helian Rongchuan said, “I want you to coax me.” 

Yan Chanqing suddenly got a lot of goosebumps: “You are such a big man, yet you still have to be coaxed?”

“Who stipulated that big men don’t need to be coaxed? I need it.” Helian Rongchuan was cheeky, and wrapped his right arm around Yan Changqing’s thin and narrow waist: 

“Hey, sing me a song, just sing… um, a lullaby.” 

Yan Changqing couldn’t help laughing: “I don’t know how. I can’t sing.” 

“Then…then tell me a joke.” 

“I don’t know that either.” Yan Changqing shook his head honestly. 

Now it was Helian Rongchuan’s turn to be helpless. He didn’t expect this person to say anything sweet, but how could he not even know how to coax someone? No wonder he was still a virgin after living for more than 20 years, and he didn’t have a single relationship. 

However, Yan Changqing thought about it seriously, and said, “Why don’t I read the Art of War book I just read to you, I think it’s very interesting. You will like it too.” 

Helian Rongchuan: “…” 

Helian Rongchuan was angered by Yan Changqing until he was laughing. Outside the window, the wind was breezy, the branches were full of flowers, and the bright moon was in the sky. In the room, under the translucent gauze curtain, the two of them sat on the same bed where the light and shadow of the night pearl was dazzling. What a beautiful and sentimental atmosphere it was, yet Yan Changqing wanted to teach him the art of war!! ! 

Cold tactics!?

What is the difference between this and the bride who doesn’t obediently go to bed to do the good deeds in the bridal chamber, and instead drags the groom to the Buddhist hall to knock on the mokugyo! ! ! 

Seeing that Yan Changqing was about to get up to get the book, Helian Rongchuan was anxious. He suddenly came up with a bad idea, and hurriedly said, “It’s okay to study, but I’ve already memorized that book on the Art of War. Let’s change it.” 

Yan Changqing put down the book in his hand: “Then which one do you want?” 

Helian Rongchuan raised his chin towards the top of the bookshelf: “That one, the red one, I want to hear that one from you.”

Yan Changqing followed Helian Rong Chuan’s instructions and took a book from the shelf. He saw that the binding was very delicate, and it was heavy in his hand. On the red cover were three large ink characters: 

“Yin Ping Mei”. 

What book is this? How had he never heard of it? 

The corner of Helian Rongchuan’s mouth curled into a smirk that was not easily detectable: “Yes, this is the book.” 

Yan Changqing nodded and sat beside Helian Rongchuan, opened the page, and read it word by word.
