When Xiao Yuan woke up, his whole body was sore. Fortunately, the greasy feeling that lasted all night disappeared and he felt refreshed. Looking at his face alone, one wouldn’t be able to tell what he and Gu Louyin had done last night, but it was spectacular below his neck. He sat up with an effort, looked down at his slightly red chest and waist and slowly sighed.
Xiao Yuan thought that he was a thick-skinned person, but thinking back to what happened last night, he still couldn’t help but feel his cheeks heat and his heart beat faster.
Except for him, no one had seen Gu Louyin like that – dripping with sweat, his cold white face flushed, his eyes full of invading desires.
Hearing the noise outside, Xiao Yuan regained his senses, opened the quilt and got out of bed. As soon as his feet stepped on the floor, his waist and legs went soft at the same time and he dropped to his knees on the ground.
Xiao Yuan felt angry and funny, stood up holding onto the bed and slowly walked towards the door.
It was livelier than he thought outside. Mu Yingyang’s face was pale; he was holding Duya in his hand, trying his best to stab Gu Louyin with his every move. Xiao Yuan could see that he really wanted Gu Louyin’s life. However, Gu Louyin’s sword was sheathed and he only guarded easily without attacking. There was also Fang Baichu, either anxious or excited, shouting: “Stop, you guys stop! Stop fighting!”
Xiao Yuan: “…”
Xiao Yuan leaned against the door and for a while watched the show with great interest. Fang Baichu was the first to see him. “Young lord!”
Mu Yingyang stopped abruptly and looked at Xiao Yuan, “Shixiong!”
Xiao Yuan raised his eyebrows, “Go on, the winner is still undecided.”
Fang Baichu: “What undecided? A blind man can see that Master Mu can’t beat Master Gu.”
Mu Yingyang gritted his teeth. “If you say one more thing, do you believe I will cut off your tongue?”
Fang Baichu quickly covered his mouth.
Gu Louyin said, “I didn’t make a move – I’m sorry to awake you.”
“I was not awakened by your fight,” Xiao Yuan said, “I was awakened by being uncomfortable.”
“Where is it uncomfortable?”
Xiao Yuan asked rhetorically: “What do you think?”
Gu Louyin paused and said, “I’m sorry.”
“Shixiong,” Mu Yingyang stepped forward, pointed at Gu Louyin and asked, “Why is he in your room?”
Xiao Yuan understated: “I invited him here.”
Mu Yingyang’s face was even more unsightly than before, “Why!”
“I was not feeling well, so I asked him to take care of me.” As a result, he was taken care of all night.
Mu Yingyang asked, “If you are not feeling well, why don’t you look for me or Fang Baichu but for Gu Louyin?!”
Xiao Yuan said carelessly: “Because I just wanted to be taken care of by him.”
Mu Yingyang’s anger was extinguished all at once, replaced by shock, sadness and grievances.
Fang Baichu also took a deep breath and looked at Gu Louyin. He saw that the other party was unperturbed at first glance but the corners of his mouth seemed to be slightly raised. He took a closer look and felt that he had seen it wrong. Gu Louyin didn’t seem like a jealous person, he must have been mistaken.
“Shixiong,” Mu Yingyang stared straight at Xiao Yuan, his eyes red as if he was about to cry, “You promised me, you won’t…”
Mu Yingyang stopped abruptly. He begged Xiao Yuan, begged him not to like other people even if he didn’t like himself, but Xiao Yuan didn’t agree. Xiao Yuan never gave him any promises, and even after he bared his heart, he clearly said to him one word: Impossible.
From beginning to end, it was his own wishful thinking, and he was not qualified to accuse Xiao Yuan.
Mu Yingyang looked at Xiao Yuan and took a few steps back. Before completely losing his mind, he turned around and strode away.
Xiao Yuan sighed, “I’ll go back inside and continue to sleep.” He stared at Gu Louyin, “Go together?”
Fang Baichu: “…” Do you want to be so open about it?
Gu Louyin said, “Eat something first.”
Gu Louyin went to the kitchen and brought some light food for Xiao Yuan. Xiao Yuan ate slowly and collapsed on the bed again.
Gu Louyin said, “Go to bed after applying the medicine.”
Xiao Yuan was startled, “Medicine? What medicine?”
Gu Louyin took out a jade box containing an ointment. Xiao Yuan immediately understood, buried his face in the pillow and said sullenly: “I won’t.”
“Okay, you won’t.” Gu Louyin leaned over and whispered in his ear, “Let’s do something else.”
Xiao Yuan raised his head, “Something else?”
His lips were kissed unexpectedly. Gu Louyin sucked on his mouth softly, as if without any desire. Xiao Yuan closed his eyes, gradually relaxing with this gentle kiss, and hugged him.
Just as Xiao Yuan was immersed in warmth, Gu Louyin quietly opened the jade box.
Feeling Gu Louyin’s cold fingers smeared with ointment, Xiao Yuan’s body suddenly tightened and he sobered up.
Gu Louyin, so insidious and cunning, was getting more and more deceitful.
Xiao Yuan couldn’t help being angry and bit Gu Louyin’s lip. Gu Louyin let him bite and the movements on his hand became slower and slower.
When the medicine was applied, Gu Louyin’s lip was split and he was sweating again.
After Xiao Yuan took a two-day break, Gu Louyin saw that he had almost recovered and once again raised the matter of exchanging hearts. Xiao Yuan wanted to evade, but Gu Louyin said, “You agreed – in bed.”
Xiao Yuan said solemnly: “What a man says in bed can’t be taken seriously.”
“The antidote is gone and if you can’t find a ruthless hua before the 15th of next month…”
Xiao Yuan smiled and said, “You continue to help me relieve it. What, can’t you do it?”
Gu Louyin said, “After we exchange hearts, you can also help me relieve it.”
Xiao Yuan imagined Gu Louyin during the Acacia Gu’s attack. He felt distressed and excited at the same time, but in the end, distress prevailed. “So, there is no difference between the Acacia Gu being yours or mine. You don’t have to worry about it at all.”
Gu Louyin was silent for a moment and then said, “Back then, it was precisely because of the Acacia Gu in your body that I took your blood.”
Xiao Yuan suddenly understood.
The matter of taking blood was the biggest crack between him and Gu Louyin. For the sake of hard-won mutual affection, the two rarely mentioned this matter, but it did not mean that they could completely look over it.
“If it happens again, I hope it will be my blood.”
It turned out that this was Gu Louyin’s real heart demon.
Xiao Yuan smiled, “Well, then let’s exchange.”
Before Gu Louyin had time to rejoice, he heard Xiao Yuan say eagerly: “But I’ll say this up front, I’m not going to be too gentle with you when your Acacia Gu kicks in, and I’ll have to apply medicine on you afterwards!”
Gu Louyin hesitated: “Do you mean…”
Xiao Yuan thought something mysterious and burst out laughing.
Gu Louyin silently swallowed what he had to say.
“I’ll ask Meng Chi to prepare for the exchange of hearts.” Xiao Yuan smiled, “By the way, I need to tell my ge.”
