Please, I Really Didn’t Want To Fall in Love With My Master! - Chapter 128
Chapter 128: Yue Jianli who was stuck in the bathtub!
Yue Jianli fell into the water with a cry of surprise.
Before she could struggle, she entered into a warm embrace.
Turning around, Li Ran said with a faint smile, “Tell me, why did you sneak into my room? Are you planning to murder me?”
Yue Jianli rolled her eyes at him. “I just saw that you were in a bad mood and wanted to visit you.”
She had long noticed that Li Ran had been silent ever since he had killed the Thundererous Feral Lion.
He seemed to be trying his best to control something.
Li Ran knew what she was talking about.
He was not in a bad mood but was resisting the frenzied killing intent brought by the ignition of his bloodline.
After the bloody battle with Thunderous Feral Lion, the killing intent in his blood had been thoroughly aroused.
Even though he had withdrawn from the Awakened State, he was still a little irritable.
But it was much better now.
Yue Jianli pursed her lips and said, “I had good intentions to come and take care of you, yet you scared me and made my clothes wet…”
Her entire body was wet, and her green robe was tightly pressed against her body, outlining an exquisite curve.
Perhaps it was due to body refinement, but Yue Jianli’s figure was not weak. Instead, it was filled with flexibility and explosive force, giving people a strong visual impact.
Li Ran gulped and turned around awkwardly.
Yue Jianli was a little strange. She suddenly sensed something and her face turned red.
She tried to stand up in a fluster, but her legs were a little sore, and she sat back down.
Li Ran pulled her back and said with a pained expression, “Wait, you better not move…”
Yue Jianli clutched her cheeks and stammered, “A-are you okay?”
Li Ran looked at her nose, mouth, and heart as if he was an old monk. “Just take it slow.”
Yue Jianli nodded obediently and did not dare to move.
The atmosphere became still for a while.
Yue Jianli said shyly, “Why don’t I talk with you? This way, I might be able to divert your attention from the pain.”
Li Ran nodded. “All right.”
She recalled the bloody battle last night. She could still feel the Thunderous Feral Lion’s sharp claws reaching her face.
“You saved my life again…”
Yue Jianli held her fingers and said, “Including this time, you’ve already saved me three times. So I feel like I owe you more and more.”
The first time was when the Nine Heavens Divine Lightning tried to kill her.
The second time was the golden giant that supported the entire sky.
The blood-colored figure also sent the Thunderous Feral Lion flying last night, blocking her path.
Li Ran was like a savior, always saving her in times of crisis.
It seemed that as long as he was around, she would feel at ease.
Yue Jianli had never been so dependent on anyone before.
Her eyes were misty. “Li Ran, how should I repay you?”
“This kind of kindness, if you don’t want to be an ox or a horse, you can only devote yourself to me.” Li Ran gave her a fair opinion.
“……” Yue Jianli snorted. “Dream on. I won’t do that!”
But the corner of her mouth, which had her back to him, was slightly raised.
However, a trace of disappointment flashed through her eyes as she said in a low voice, “But I don’t want to drag you down every time.”
Yue Jianli had never been so eager to become stronger.
She wanted to fight alongside Li Ran instead of being protected like a child.
Li Ran shook his head. “Who said you dragged me down?”
Yue Jianli lowered her head. “Indeed, I didn’t help much, and I always wanted you to save me…”
Li Ran smiled. “Aren’t you very good at feeding me medicine?”
“Hey, feed you some medicine?”
Yue Jianli recalled the days when Li Ran was unconscious in the village. Then, she was so shy that she did not dare to look up. Even her earlobe was dyed red.
“That was Auntie Sun’s nonsense. I didn’t feed you like that…”
Her voice grew softer and softer, and she felt like she was lacking in confidence.
Li Ran said with a mischievous smile, “What’s that like? How about you show me?“
“I don’t want to!”
Dong, dong, dong.
At this moment, there was a knock on the door, followed by footsteps approaching.
“Sheng Zi Li, are you here?”
A female voice sounded. It was Sheng Zhixia!
Yue Jianli was stunned and covered her mouth. “It’s over. I forgot to close the door when I came in!”
Although they had gotten closer, she was in his bathtub!
If news of this got out, she wouldn’t be able to face anyone!
“It’s fine. I’ll throw her out right now…”
Before Li Ran could finish his sentence, he was stunned.
Yue Jianli puffed up her cheeks and dove into the water!
At that moment, Sheng Zhixia opened the screen and saw Li Ran soaking in the bathtub. She instantly blushed.
She quickly turned around and said in a low voice, “I’m sorry, I-I opened the door and came straight in. I didn’t know you were bathing.”
At the same time, she muttered to himself.
This Sheng Zi didn’t close the door even though he was bathing…
Li Ran cleared his throat. “Why are you looking for me?”
Sheng Zhixia calmed down and said, “I came to apologize to Sheng Zi Li. Just now, General Wang was impulsive and offended you. I apologize for that.”
She didn’t call herself ‘this princess’ It seemed like she was indeed feeling guilty.
Li Ran nodded. “All right, I accept your apology. If there’s nothing else, go back.”
Sheng Zhixia was stunned.
Accept it just like that?
So easy to talk to on the first day?
How could she have thought that there hid a person in the bathtub?
Sheng Zhixia continued, “There’s one more thing. Thank you, Sheng Zi Li, for stopping the beast tide and protecting Southern Wind City and hundreds of thousands of citizens of the Sheng Dynasty. Your act is a great kindness.”
She bowed deeply.
Li Ran said indifferently, “I acted for the sake of the human race. It has nothing to do with the prosperity of the court. Therefore, I do not need you to thank me.”
His tone was not polite, but Sheng Zhixia was not angry at all.
Instead, she smiled and said, “Looks like I was biased against Sheng Zi Li. I didn’t expect you to have such a righteous cause in your heart. It’s truly admirable.”
She took out a box full of qi and placed it on the table beside her.
“I came in a hurry and didn’t bring anything valuable. So here’s a small gift to express our gratitude. Please accept the gift.”
Li Ran was about to respond when his thigh was pinched.
He knew that Yue Jianli could not hold it in the water anymore.
He raised his hand, and a boundless qi surged out, directly throwing Sheng Zhixia out.
“I’ll accept the gift. Take care, Princess Sheng.”
Then, he closed the door with a bang.
Sheng Zhixia sat on the floor of the corridor and looked at the tightly shut door. Her eyes were still slightly dazed.
“He, he threw me out?!”
