Chapter 153: The State Preceptor’s Vicious Tongue IV
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
“Only those who are weak will criticize you about your weight. For me, your weight… is just fine.”
Feng Ruqing’s lips trembled at this.
Why did it feel like… what the state preceptor said just now was meant for Liu Yuchen?
“State preceptor, put me down.” Feng Ruqing was afraid that the state preceptor would be crushed under her weight. She could not help but want to struggle out of the state preceptor’s embrace.
“There there. Don’t move.” The voice of the man was sweet and gentle. “We’re only apart for a month. You’re lighter now. Is there anyone bothering you and making you unable to have your meals properly?”
“Why can’t I have my meal properly if someone is bothering me?”
“Don’t I know about you? If someone you hate is bothering you that day, you would be so disgusted with that person that you can’t have your meal. If you meet those people again, you can just ask Qing Zhu to go and deal with them. Just don’t forget to have your meal.”
‘State preceptor, does Qing Zhu know about your vicious tongue?’
Liu Yuchen’s face hardened further. He took a deep breath and walked toward Nan Xian slowly.
“State preceptor, I see that you have a good relationship with the princess. I thought that the princess hated you because she used to always mention your wickedness.”
Nan Xian looked at Liu Yuchen calmly. “There people who are always threatening her. That’s why she was afraid of me. Now, Qing’er has learned about my good personality so she won’t be afraid of me anymore.”
“State Preceptor Nan Xian, you’re so talented and powerful. Why have you fallen for the princess?”
The underlying meaning was how the outstanding state preceptor had fallen for the princess who was a useless villain.
Nan Xian lowered his eyes and looked at the girl in his embrace. There was a soft smile on his face. “It’s because I can recognize the excellent qualities overlooked by the others.”
Feng Ruqing blushed. If she did not know the state preceptor was just helping her get rid of those people, she would have taken his words for real.
“State preceptor.” Liu Yuchen clenched his fists tightly. “Then, do you know that the princess has found herself a gigolo when you’re not around?”
Feng Ruqing was furious.
This Liu Yuchen was so rotten that he was so bold to condemn her before the state preceptor.
“State preceptor, Qin Chen is my younger brother. Don’t listen to Liu Yuchen’s nonsense. You’re the only one in my heart and on my mind. I only want to sleep with you.”
Nan Xian raised his head and looked at Liu Yuchen. He smiled lightly. “I believe in Qing’er. I’ll believe everything she says.”
Liu Yuchen was stunned.
The state preceptor should be angry after hearing that. Why was he so calm?
Did he really believe Feng Ruqing?
What made Liu Yuchen even more confused was that Feng Ruqing and the state preceptor were two totally different people. They belonged to two different worlds. Why had they come together now?
Liu Yuchen felt helpless and was reluctant to accept the truth.
Feng Ruqing voiced out again when Liu Yuchen was just about to say something.
“Liu Yuchen is guilty of slandering me. Give him a hundred whippings later. I am not Feng Ruqing if I do not punish him until he cannot live with himself,” Feng Ruqing ordered angrily.
She would not have bothered if Liu Yuchen slandered her any other day but it was the state preceptor this time!
Liu Yuchen’s handsome face turned pale. He raised his head to look at Feng Ruqing. His eyes were in a daze.
Tan Shuangshuang was nervous and anxious. She rushed forward and knelt down in front of Feng Ruqing. She cried hysterically. “The public has seen you knocking down the youth and bringing him home. They are the ones who had spread the rumor. It’s not Yuchen’s fault. Please forgive him this time. If you’re still angry, I’ll endure the punishment for him.”
Feng Ruqing could not help it, her eyes widened in disbelief.
She had seen how disappointed and angry Tan Shuangshuang was after realizing how Liu Yuchen had treated her. But, how could she behave like a hypocrite now?
