Keyboard Immortal - Chapter 259
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 don’t 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 I’ll 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 couldn’t 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 woman’s eyes grew cold . “What did you say?”
“I was just saying that there seems to be some… big jealousy from lady Pei’s 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 . “Forget it . 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 Chuyan’s 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 shouldn’t have escaped their detection .
“I didn’t . ” Pei Mianman’s expression became strange . She didn’t visit her close friend and instead looked for her husband… That was why she hurriedly added, “I heard that she hasn’t been feeling that well, so I didn’t want to bother her tonight . ”
After saying this, she suddenly frowned . Her body twisted unnaturally .
“You’re 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 didn’t 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 didn’t 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 didn’t 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 Mianman’s face loosened a bit . “But Chen Xuan is still a sixth rank cultivator . Against someone like this, you’ll be fortunate to get out alive, so a bit of injury is nothing . ”
Zu An’s 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 Dengtu’s 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 Mianman’s smile .
Zu An’s eyes flushed red . He immediately replied, “I just wanted to know where you were injured out of concern!”
“Stop guessing, it’s not where you think it is . ” A ruminate expression lingered in Pei Mianman’s eyes . “Just how did Chuyan end up liking a scoundrel like you? I really just cannot understand! It’s not even just her, that fox Qiu Honglei seems quite fond of you too . I don’t see a single exceptional aspect from you . ”
Zu An smiled bashfully . “I am someone with more introverted qualities . You’ll 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 . “It’s none of your business . A small wound like this isn’t an issue at all . ”
Zu An was startled and amused . This woman was always behaving so flirtatiously, but she was actually this reserved inside!
“It’ll leave a scar if we don’t treat it quickly . ” Zu An warned .
Pei Mianma sneered . “Do you think I’m like one of those dainty little girls? Cultivators are different from ordinary people, and I’ve always recovered quickly . I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been injured since childhood . Do you see any of those wounds scarring?”
“I’d 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 Mianman’s smile instantly vanished . “I don’t need your sympathy!”
Zu An didn’t seem to mind at all after seeing her change in attitude . “Don’t worry, I won’t 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 can’t 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 . ”
“Chuyan’s condition is actually that serious?” Pei Mianman’s expression immediately became complicated .
“It’s not too bad . With a divine physician like yours truly, it’s 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 won’t let you off easy even if you’re Chuyan’s 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 wasn’t too obvious . “That son of a dog Chen Xuan, aren’t you a bit too vicious?!”
“Hmph, he isn’t anything special . ” Pei Mianman raised her chin arrogantly . She clearly didn’t want to be underestimated .
“Yeah yeah yeah, I know you’re really strong and awesome . ” Zu An gently tore off the clothes around that wound .
“What are you doing!” Pei Mianman’s entire body went rigid . She gripped her sword even more tightly .
“Relax! How can I apply the medicine if I don’t clean up the area around the wound?” Zu An replied . “Don’t worry, I won’t go so far as to bully my wife’s close friend in her very house . ”
“Heh, I knew you wouldn’t have the guts to do something like that . ” Seeing that he didn’t go any further, Pei Mianman loosened up a bit .
Zu An dabbed some medicine, gently cleaning up the wound . “Does it hurt?”
“It’s fine . 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 Mianman’s face blushed slightly . But being shy really wasn’t her style, so soon afterwards, she laughed proudly and said, “Who’s 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 wife’s, or that my wife’s 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 wasn’t 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 I’m 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 . Don’t go too crazy tonight and just stay here . Otherwise, if you ended up getting attacked by some scoundrel, then my heart really wouldn’t be able to take it . ”
Pei Mianman’s eyes flickered with a teasing radiance . “Why do I feel like I’ll be in more danger if I stay here?”
“Even if you don’t trust my integrity, you should trust Chuyan’s judgment in picking her husband . I’m going to sleep next door, so you’re on your own . You can leave whenever you want . ”
After a bit of hesitation, she said, “Don’t tell Chuyan about what happened today… don’t tell any of her family members either . ”
Zu An couldn’t help but laugh . “This is just some normal affair, why does it suddenly seem like some scandal? Don’t worry, it’ll 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 didn’t make a difference . As such, he didn’t 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 .
