A Love for Three Lives：Monster King Don’t Forget Me - Chapter 62
Chapter 62 I Seem to Know Your Blood
When Ronghua woke up again, the first thing she saw was a white bed curtain. Where was she?
She sat up with great difficulty, wondering where the place was.
Judging from the surrounding furnishings, she thought she should be in an inn! Only would the inn be as simple and barren as this.
Ronghua lifted the quilt and took her clothes from the bedside. She got out and was about to put on her clothes when the door suddenly opened. Her forehead twitched. Rongnuan entered the room while speaking, “Ronghua, are you awake?”
As a result, as soon as he came in, he saw that she was wearing clothes. Except for the clothes that covered her chest, she was almost naked.
Rongnuan stood there and did not move, with a blank look and a pair of eyes fixed on Ronghua’s body. Ronghua restrained herself and said, “Go out!” She almost squeezed these words out between her teeth.
“Oh… Oh, I’ll go out right away.” Rongnuan finally realized what was going on and then hurried out. Ronghua was thinking about killing him even after he closed the door.
You Feng sat by the table and asked as she saw Rongnuan get downstairs, “Hey, where’s she? Doesn’t she come down?”
Rongnuan glanced at her and said with a normal expression, “She’ll come down soon.”
You Feng clucked and thought, “Does he wear such an ice-cold expression to everyone? I’m afraid that woman is the only one who can stand him.”
You Yue asked, “Sister, when are we going to leave?”
“Leave? Where should we go?” You Feng asked in confusion. You Yue was a bit angry, “We need to find someone who can cure you. Sister, you have been seriously injured, and if you don’t get treatment, you may die at any time!”
You Feng hadn’t considered this. Was this body at the brink of death?
“It’s okay. It’s not a matter of time!”
“How can we just wait here?!” You Yue became more and more agitated and pounded the table.
“You can’t go anywhere!”
Rongnuan abruptly said while preparing dishes for Ronghua by the side. It annoyed You Yue, “Hey, why can’t we go anywhere? How come you are so strange? Don’t think that we will be grateful to you just because you saved us!”
Rongnuan stopped what he was doing, “As long as you dare to leave, your sister will die soon!” The expression in his eyes suddenly turned terrifying. However, You Yue was fearless. She had been stirring up trouble ever since childhood and would follow a friendly persuasion but defy the compulsion.
“What do you mean? Are you cursing my sister?!”
Rongnuan continued, “It’s up to you!” He meant that You Yue could leave if she wanted her sister to die!
You Yue was so angry that a ball of fire suddenly appeared on her clenched fist. You Feng was startled when she saw it. It was the Divine Fire of Moqi Family! Was this girl a member of Moqi Family?
You Feng looked shocked, but Rongnuan had no reaction. Wasn’t he afraid? Or did he know nothing of this fire at all?
When the people around saw the fire, they knew that it was not easy to deal with, and they should not provoke You Yue either. She could summon it without any help at such a young age, which showed that she had a good aptitude for cultivation or was born in a great family with the ability to use the fire.
“Guy, do you know this?” You Yue asked provocatively. You Feng, however, was anxious and yelled, “Yue, put the fire away!”
You Yue did not follow her words but continued pointing at Rongnuan with her fire. The fire shone on Rongnuan’s fair face and looked extremely hot.
“Yue!” You Feng raised her voice, “Dissipate your fire!”
Rongnuan remained calm, while You Feng’s face was full of anxiety. She didn’t know why she was unable to control the fire like You Yue, even though they both belonged to Moqi Family.
“Yue, there are too many people here. Your fire will hurt others!”
You Yue said with a grievance, “Sister!”
“She is right. Your fire is a bit powerful, and you’d better put it away! It’s not good to hurt someone!”
Ronghua’s voice came. A faint smile appeared on Rongnuan’s face, and the movements in his hands did not stop. After You Yue dissipated her fire, she sat up straight and stared at Ronghua, “Well, are you going to stop us from leaving too?”
Looking at Ronghua, You Feng frowned as she heard her voice. She could find that even though this woman was discussing with her, she kept speaking in an irresistible tone.
Ronghua leaned against the handrails and didn’t come downstairs. Calmly, she gazed at them, “You’re so rude at such a young age. Don’t you know that I saved you?”
You Yue felt it ridiculous, “You saved us? If you didn’t have any ulterior motives, how come you would save us?”
Ronghua kept her smile, “Even if I had, what can you do now?”
You Yue was stunned because she didn’t expect someone with ulterior motives to speak so boldly. She snarled, “You! You indeed want to take advantage of us!”
You Yue always had a hot temper.
She pounded the table with her palm, and the poor table couldn’t bear her attack and fell apart. Calmly and expressionlessly, Rongnuan stood up and left, carrying the dishes of Ronghua.
You Yue took advantage of the trend and made the fire gathered in her hand rush towards Ronghua’s forehead directly. It was too late for You Feng to stop her, “Sister, no!”
However, even if You Yue stopped now, she couldn’t stop the fire. It seemed that the flame was going to hit Ronghua, but in the blink of an eye, You Yue was beaten back. She fell to the ground and moaned in pain. No one saw what had happened. When they noticed You Yue’s Divine Fire, they managed to dodge it as fast as they could.
You Feng looked over. Unexpectedly, You Yue’s hand was somehow crippled as if it had gotten roasted, with the skin peeled off, and flesh and blood inside exposed. It looked very fearsome.
“Yue?” You Feng hurriedly ran over to help You Yue up. However, her body was abnormally hot. You Feng had an ominous premonition, “…Yue!”
You Yue just opened her mouth weakly, staring at Ronghua. Her lips trembled, but she couldn’t utter a word.
“She’s fine!” Ronghua was still standing there motionlessly, with her eyes fixed on You Yue’s injured hand. There were countless thoughts in her eyes, and no one knew what she was thinking.
You Feng said to Ronghua angrily, “Miss, even if you are our savior, how come you did such a cruel thing?”
Ronghua still wore a faint smile on her face, “I can’t predict what will happen. If you continue to waste time like this, her hand will probably be crippled. So, choose it yourself. Come up or wait for her to die!” After saying, Ronghua turned around and returned to her room, followed by Rongnuan.
Her words were threatening, but no one could refute. After all, it was You Yue who started the fight, and she deserved the consequences, no matter what would happen to her.
You Feng could have ignored it, but the only wish left by the former owner of this body was— “Protect my sister!”
Moreover, if it weren’t for You Yue’s protection, she would have died before waking up. With such a character, You Yue would be unable to continue her life after her hand got disabled!
All in all, You Feng felt she should not leave You Yue alone. With one hand supporting You Yue’s head and the other under her legs, You Feng hugged her up and walked over to Ronghua.
Ronghua sat down and placed one hand on the table, knocking on it from time to time. It made Rongnuan feel a shiver in his heart, and he tremblingly put down the dishes. Ronghua glanced at them, only to find that they were all vegetables in mild flavors, without any meat. She twitched the corner of her mouth and said, “All vegetables. Are you going to feed the rabbit?”
Rongnuan glanced at her and seemed to be angry, murmuring, “Isn’t it that you like vegetables and dislike the meat?”
Ronghua was so annoyed that she sneered, “I like vegetables? Have you ever seen a wolf that likes eating vegetarian food? Go to change the dishes. Otherwise, I’ll stew you like a dish!”
Rongnuan’s face went grey with fright when he heard that. He hugged Ronghua hurriedly, “My flesh doesn’t taste good. Don’t stew me! Don’t! Don’t! Don’t!”
Ronghua looked at him with a disgusted expression, but she couldn’t push him away. Carrying You Yue, You Feng came in. Seeing such a scene and hearing Rongnuan repeat “Don’t”, she was a little embarrassed and said, “Should I go out and wait for you…?”
“There’s no need!” Ronghua interrupted her and covered Rongnuan’s mouth, saying calmly, “Come in! Put her on the bed.” Then she said to Rongnuan, “Get up. Otherwise, I will eat you now!”
Immediately, Rongnuan stood up and obediently stood by her side.
You Feng put down her sister and then heard the words. She thought to herself, “Eat? How will she eat him? Forgive me. I’m overthinking!”
She turned around and said to Ronghua, “What’s your purpose for keeping me here?”
Ronghua stood up and looked into her eyes, “If I say I’m recruiting soldiers, will you believe me?”
You Feng smiled, “Recruiting soldiers? What kind of soldiers do you need? You even dare to recruit people like me?”
Ronghua fiddled with her fingers and asked, “Why wouldn’t I dare?”
You Feng looked into her eyes, “People like you are rare. I didn’t expect that such people would appear again after so long.”
“What kind of people?”
The air suddenly froze, and the atmosphere became a bit stiff. Rongnuan kept watching them indifferently behind Ronghua, wearing a faint smile all the time. Ronghua had never seen Rongnuan be like this before!
Ronghua turned around silently. You Feng lowered her head and knew that her words might have gone too far. But she was unable to trust others easily after experiencing so many things.
Was she recruiting soldiers? It should be just an excuse. No one knew her real purpose.
Rongnuan could find that Ronghua was in a gloomy and even downbeat mood. It seemed that she was hurt!
In a sudden, a concealed weapon shot in through the window. Before You Feng could see it, Ronghua already turned around and warded off it with her sword. With a jingle, the concealed weapon got nailed to a nearby pillar. In the blink of an eye, many other concealed weapons flew in. You Feng finally realized what was going on and threw herself on her sister’s side and narrowly dodged the attack.
You Yue said in a frail voice, “Sister, watch out!”
Ronghua turned around and happened to press down Rongnuan standing behind her. Before he could react, Ronghua threw herself on him without any hesitation. After she pressed him down to the ground, her face was only a finger’s distance away from his. She immediately smelled a scent from him, which was not the scent of medicine but something else.
Rongnuan looked at her awkwardly. Since all of her weight was on him, he could sense every part of her body.
He turned his head. On the one hand, he wanted to see where the weapons came from. On the other hand, he tried to avoid embarrassment.
The rain of weapons shooting in from outside didn’t stop. Instead, they changed into another one — the gunpowder stone! It would cause an explosion as soon as it touched or rubbed against each other.
Seeing something falling, Ronghua held Rongnuan in her arms and had a white silk cloth in her hand looped around the pillar in front of her head and then pulled them over.
It happened to be a place where the attack from outside the window couldn’t reach. Ronghua slowly got up to a crouch. When she saw that the attack weakened slightly, she prepared to head over to You Feng’s side.
“Don’t leave!” Rongnuan hugged her tightly from behind. Ronghua showed a helpless look, “I’m not leaving. I’m just going to help them!”
Rongnuan pouted his lips and said, “In any case, they wouldn’t repay you even if you saved them out of kindness! You’d better leave them alone!”
Ronghua directly hit him on his head and said, “What are you talking about? If it were like what you think, I shouldn’t have saved you at the beginning!”
Rongnuan thought of something and loosened his grip on her. She helplessly comforted him, “Ease down. It’s all right!” After looking at herself up and down, she took off the necklace on her neck and put it on him, “Be a good boy. I’ll go to save them.”
Rongnuan gazed at the necklace on his neck. It wasn’t an ordinary accessory.
