Bathing Together (2)
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Gu Xijiu often avoided the pursuit of the half-orcs the critical moments. However, without her spiritual power and invisibility, the spaces to hide were getting smaller and smaller. Although no one had found her, it was getting exponentially more difficult for her to hide.
She discovered that the half-orcs were following her smell to trace her location, so she made up her mind and took the oozing green liquid from the wall to smear on the body. The fluid had a smell of green grass, and it could actually obscure the light fragrance on her body. The only drawback she could think of at that moment was that it would not be easy to clean.
All of a sudden, Gu Xijiu heard the footsteps of the half-orcs in front of her. Just when she was about to go back and hide in a small alley, she also heard the footsteps and the voice of the half-orcs in that alley. It appears that she was cornered!
This time she was afraid that she could not escape anymore! She could only take the risk to fight without her spiritual power!
She listened to the surrounding and heard that there were slightly fewer soldiers coming from the front. There were about seven or eight of them based on her estimation. When she was about to break out, there was a hand on her shoulder!
She was shocked! Subconsciously she rushed forward to escape the hand. Suddenly her wrist was held, and a voice appeared beside her ear. “Don’t be afraid; come with me!”
Gu Xijiu finally got to see the person who grabbed her. He wore apurple robe and a silver butterfly mask. It was actually Mr. Fuyi. While Gu Xijiu was still stunned, Mr. Fuyi pulled her with his left hand and touched the wall with his right hand. A door seemed to open, and he dragged her into it to hide.
Gu Xijiu breathed a sigh of relief and looked around to study her surroundings. She found that the decoration was elegant, like the bedroom of a noble young man. The room was adequately furnished. There was a bed beside the wall. The bed sheet was painted with landscapes, which looked like smoke and rain. It was very artistic.
In the middle of the room, there was a bathtub with floating petals, and there was steam in the tub.
After taking a look at the layout of this room, Gu Xijiu was a bit shocked. The style in this room gave her a feeling of familiarity. It seemed that her bedroom in the Fucang Palace was also in this style of decoration.
Of course, the interior design of the room in the Fucang Palace was much more elegant than here. This was like a simplified version.
Was this the style that Mr. Fuyi liked? Or it was initially designed like this for him to stay temporarily? After all, he only came here three days ago. The duration was so short. Would the young palace master specially design a room for him?
She looked at Mr. Fuyi and was about to speak, but there was a sound from the outside. Heavy footsteps were heard.
“We have searched everywhere, except here…”
“The little thief should not have escaped. We have let the dogs search for her scent, and the smell is still very fresh.”
“Should we search here again? This is the bedroom of the special guest, Mr. Fuyi. Mr. Fuyi is quite fussy. I am afraid that he will not be happy if we search in his bedroom.”
“What are you afraid of? The little thief is very tricky and also highly skilled. If she really hides here, it might be unfavorable to Mr. Fuyi. Therefore, even if we search the room, Mr. Fuyi will not be angry with us.”
The people outside were loud. Apparently, this time they would definitely come in and search!
Gu Xijiu’s eyes quickly turned around to find a place to hide. However, apart from the bed that she could barely hide under, there were no other places that could conceal a person.
