Chapter 29 – I’m Her Husband

 

“Hey, mate! Let me ask you something.” Gu Qingyu had a gossipy look on her face.

Qi Wan, this brat, also copied her, “Sure, mate. What’s up?”

“So, how did you transmigrate here?”

“Uh…” Qi Wan shook his head in embarrassment, “Just a mishap, an accident.”

“Just tell me!” Gu Qingyu’s long time restrained gossipy personality finally burst out.

“Hehehe…” Qi Wan chuckled in a low voice, “You go first.”

“Sure…” Gu Qingyu thought for a while, “Okay, so, I’m a psychiatrist back home. In the middle of a rainy night, when I was about to get off work and go home. A black clothed man appeared and tried to kill me, I ran all the way to the mortuary. Then I was “kacha’d” without even being able to react… you?

“Wah, it sounds so terrifying!” Qi Wan gasped and nodded, then spoke in a fearless manner, “Me? I was just at home eating my dinner and a black clothed man suddenly barged in, wielding a knife. I was scared shitless, and choked to death on my food.”

“…” Gu Qingyu’s eyes widened larger and larger, then— “Puuuah— Ahahah! 70k, so they didn’t even do anything and you actually choked to death!”

Qi Wan glared at Gu Qingyu, then increased his pace.

Gu Qingyu also sped up and caught up to the rest.

 

Gu Qingyu walked up to Jia Qizhe, “Hey! Brother Jia!”

“Yeah?” Jia Qizhe cast her a dull look.

“Ehehehe!” Gu Qingyu was all fawning and smiling, “Brother Jia, this appearance makes you look so powerful!”

“Look? Would you like to try out if I am really powerful or not?” Jia Qizhe’s words sounded very calm and tranquil, as if it was something he just blurted out, but a hint of displeasure revealed itself.

“Yippie!” Gu Qingyu appeared very excited, she was just waiting for him to say that!

Jia Qizhe was startled by her actions, he never expected her to have this kind of reaction to his words.

“You sure?” Jia Qizhe raised his eyebrows.

“Yes, please! When are we doing it?” Gu Qingyu looked at him with her face full of expectation.

Jia Qizhe said softly, three words, “In your dreams.”

“What a satisfying reply!” Gu Qingyu shouted out loudly, then said weakly, “You’re breaking my heart into pieces…”

“Calm down, Brother Zhu.” Qi Yichen walked up while waving his fan across his face, he patted on Gu Qingyu’s shoulders very cordially, “We all know how powerful Brother Jia is, right? He’s just afraid that he might hurt you!”

“Hurt me?” Gu Qingyu looked at Qi Yichen as if he was joking with her, “Qi Yichen, you should let Mo Bai to have a look at you.”

“Huh? Why?”

“Mm,” Gu Qingyu ignored him and looked towards Mo Bai, “Mo Bai, do you know how to repair a brain?”

“… Brother Zhu, I don’t.” Mo Bai answered very sincerely, “Sometimes, just ramming your head a couple of times may work.” (Dreamie: Pure and naive ones, please do not imitate)

In Mo Bai’s incomparably gentle tone, hid a hint of amusement, however, it made Qi Yichen  shudder and he quietly moved to the side.

 

There was happy laughter along the whole journey.

“How long do we have to keep on walking until we’re there…” Gu Qingyu panted. Her body couldn’t keep up anymore!

“Just one more day.” Murong Zuoyu looked at Gu Qingyu, “What is it?”

Gu Qingyu rolled her eyes, “I’m exhausted…”

“Are you even a man,” Qi Wan had a face full of amusement, taking joy in her misery, “Even our sole girl hasn’t said she’s tired yet!”

He intensified the word “sole”.

Gu Qingyu fumed with anger, “If I am a man or not, aren’t you the most clear!”

“Hehehe…” Qi Wan suddenly felt sweat dripping down his forehead.

Jia Qizhe looked towards the inn in front of them, “Let’s just rest here for tonight.”

Gu Qingyu looked up towards the skies, “It’s evening already…”

A sign hung written above the inn— “Blessed Inn”.

Wow, the shop names in the ancient times are so… straightforward?

Gu Qingyu thought to herself, “Could there be a “Cursed Inn” close by?”

Gu Qingyu nodded, “Just a question… why didn’t we travel by flight?”

Qi Yichen looked at her as if she was an alien, “Mainly because we’re trying to preserve our energy today, we’ll take to the air tomorrow.”

“…” Gu Qingyu opened her eyes wide, “Tomorrow? You—Can’t—Be—Serious?!”

 

Qi Wan started to order a table full of delicacies as soon as he entered the inn.

“70k, you act like someone who has a lot of money…” Gu Qingyu put her chin on both of her hands and looked at Qi Wan.

Qi Wan laughed, “Hurhur, me? I have nothing else, but money!”

“Really?” Gu Qingyu’s eyes gleamed, “I’m rich, I’m rich~~ Aiyo~ How can I accept this~” Is this a so-called nouveau riche?

Cough, cough,” Qi Wan dryly coughed a couple of times, “Brother… Brother Zhu, this is my money, are you not embarrassed?”

Gu Qingyu immediately shifted towards Qi Wan’s side, then patted him on the shoulders, and said in a very heartfelt way, “Aren’t we good pals?”

Qi Wan blankly nodded.

“That’s what I mean—” Gu Qingyu let out a sigh, “In the future, what is yours is mine, and what is mine is still mine!”

“…” Qi Wan desperately opened his eyes to the utmost wide: Is there any such person as her!! Is there!! Answer: Far, in the horizon. Close, in front of your eyes.

Gu Qingyu continued to eat, pleased with herself, “Then we just happily agree like this~”

Qi Wan had a sudden look: What happily! He clearly didn’t agree with it yet!!

The rest was all enjoying his misery: Little boy, who told you to show off!

 

After a full meal.

“My esteemed customers, “ The inn-waiter said in a respectful tone, “We’ve only three rooms remaining for tonight.”

“Are there any other inn close by?” Jia Qizhe slightly raised his brows.

The inn-waiter shook his head sincerely.

 

Three rooms, seven people.

Gu Qingyu, Jia Qizhe, Qi Yichen, Mo Bai, Xiao Qi, Murong Zuoyu and Qi Wan.

Since Xiao Qi was the “sole” girl, so she’ll certainly monopolize one room.

Gu Qingyu cried a river, “Do I need to tell them that I’m a girl too! Shouldn’t it be only Murong Zuoyu who doesn’t that I’m a girl!”

Qi Wan cast an evil glance over his shoulders, “Who told you to scam me!”

Gu Qingyu coughed, “Cough, cough! As a spiritual leader, I have decided! Tonight, Xiao Qi will sleep in the 1st room, I will sleep in the 2nd room, and the rest five of you share the 3rd room!”

What spiritual leader? Since when did she become a spiritual leader?? Okay, this was not important, what’s important is that she was trying to hog a room for herself!

“Why, why!” Qi Yichen stomped his feet, “This is so unfair, Brother Zhu!”

 

Unfair? This bastard clearly knew that she was a female!!

Jia Qizhe also frowned slightly, “Exactly.”

 

Exactly?

Exactly your head!

 

Gu Qingyu felt really helpless!

She suddenly got an idea, and made up in her mind, “Then you guys divide up among yourself! I’ll just share one with Xiao Qi!”

“What?” Murong Zuoyu narrowed his eyes in an instant, “You guys?”

“Yeah!” Gu Qingyu bragged shamelessly, “I am her Husband-to-be!”

 

As those words came out of her mouth:

 

Jia Qizhe’s fingertips twitched;

 

Mo Bai’s smile froze;

 

Qi Yichen spurted out a mouthful of tea;

 

Qi Wan lowered his head and his shoulders trembled;

 

Murong Zuoyu gaped openly big in disbelief;

 

Xiao Qi started to blush and turned her head 45 degrees gazing towards the skies.

 

Murong Zuoyu actually thought that Xiao Qi was blushing because of the embarrassment! What he didn’t realize, though, is that she was actually trying to hold in her laughter!

 

“Right, Xiao Qi?” Gu Qingyu boldly walked up to Xiao Qi’s side, leaning closer, in an very affectionate way.

Aiyo~~ I never thought that Xiao Qi would have this usage~

Xiao Qi coughed, “Xiao Fan, stop using me for your jokes.”

And just like this, she was rejected.

Gu Qingyu’s face changed, and said in a very displeased manner, “Wife! How can you treat your future husband like this?” She looked very “grieving and lament” and clasped her chest” Argh! My heart! I feel like it’s being ripped apart, ah!”

Gu Qingyu’s first few words made the rest feel a wave of cringe and quiver, and the last “Ah” sound made everyone spit out their food!

Xiao Qi shook her head helplessly, “I…”

 

At this time, she felt everyone’s eyes on her back!

 

She turned her head around, and noticed that apart from Murong Zuoyu, the rest was looking at her in uniform, their eyes looked somewhat pleading…

“Husband, I was wrong!” said Xiao Qi in her most vexed tone.

 

Can she even possibly reject? Can she even?

 

The answer is no.

 

Obviously.

 

It was very easy to see Murong Zuoyu being awestruck, his mouth opened up in an “O” form.

 

“Please, close your mouth,” said Qi Wan out of kindness, “… something even more terrifying has yet to come!”

“…” Murong Zuoyu coldly batted an eye at Qi Wan, Qi Wan shrugged helplessly.

Gu Qingyu laughed very vulgarly, “Ohohoho~ Knowing your faults and changing is the most important! Your husband-to-be forgives you!”

Forgive? Xiao Qi was rendered speechless. Forgive? Why should she be forgiven? Who it is that should actually be forgiving who!

 

“Wife, let us leave~” Gu Qingyu patted Xiao Qi’s head very adoringly, and grabbed her around the waist.

Xiao Qi once again lowered her head in annoyance.

Murong Zuoyu’s mouth hung down again.

Goodness! Please spare him! Why is he becoming more and more irregular when in contact with this “Brother Zhu”? Where did the original grandeur and coldness take off??

In front of such great changes, he suddenly started to miss the dull and eventless life back in the Imperial Palace.

Qi Wan and the rest sympathized with Xiao Qi, but at the same time grieving for her in their heart, “We let you down! We will always remember you!”

 

Then, following…

 

“I’ll share a room with Mo Bai. Qi Yichen, you go with Murong Zuoyu.” Jia Qizhe said indifferently.

Being neglected, Qi Wan was very unhappy, “What about me!”

“There’s a stable in the backyard.” Murong Zuoyu said coldly- Frankly speaking, none of them had any good feeling about Qi Wan!

At the same time, a very excited voice sounded through, “Come come come, 70k. Tonight you’ll sleep with us!”

No one couldn’t believe their ears.

Gu Qingyu added to another sentence in her mind, “We’ll discuss about your riches properly tonight!”

Nighttime.

Gu Qingyu sat in front of the window, looking outside.

“Xiao… Xiao Yu…” Xiao Qi weakly opened her mouth.

She heard a faint, “Yeah?”

XIao Qi gulped and swallowed, “Xiao Yu, what are you doing…”

“I am watching the scenery!” Gu Qingyu replied.

Xiao Qi was about to cry: My dear Miss! If you’re trying to look outside, then just look! Why do you have to do this “pitiful” look? And-… and you said that you were just viewing the scenery outside… The windows are clearly shut close, okay!!

“Xiao Yu, the window is closed…” Xiao Qi gulped weakly again.

Gu Qingyu nodded, “I’m hot.”

Hot? If you’re hot, then why are the windows still closed??

Xiao Qi couldn’t understand her even after repeatedly looking for reasons!

“Xiao Yu, why do you not just open the windows…”

 

Gu Qingyu turned her head around and looked at Xiao Qi with a miserable and sullen look, “I—Can’t—Get—It—Open—”
