In particular, Mr. Fuyi was even more soft-hearted when he saw her pretty face. His heart was inexplicably warm but also felt a little bit sour. He did not talk anymore but lifted his foot and stepped into the tub.
Although the tub was rather big, it was still a bit crowded when two people were inside. Gu Xijiu did not want to be so close to him, so she leaned back to the side and was about to say something. However, the door suddenly opened.
Gu Xijiu immediately sank. The petals were scattered above the head and also covered the view inside the tub.
Four half-orcs sneaked in and suddenly saw Mr. Fuyi in the tub. They were stunned.
“Mr. Fuyi, sorry to disturb.”
Mr. Fuyi leaned against the wall of the tub. Almost half of his body sank in the water. He only showed the body parts above his two arms on the surface. The black hair was scattered on his shoulders. He was covered by steam so the half-orcs could not even see his shoulders clearly.
When he saw those people coming in, he did not move but just looked at them lazily. “Are you coming in to see me take a bath?”
The four half-orcs shooked their heads. They knew that man was actually very difficult to get rid of. He was very fussy. Once he was irritated, he would not be happy. If he complained to their master, they would be tortured!
The four of them took a step back. “No, we don’t dare to! We followed the instruction of our master to search for the person who sneaked in…”
“Do you think she is hiding here?”
“We… we are just afraid that she will sneak in and hide in the dark. We are worried that she would disturb Mr. Fuyi while he is taking a bath…”
When they were talking, the four people quickly glanced through the room. The place where people can hide in the house was the bed. However, the bed was visible, and they knew she was not there.
One of them gazed at the big tub. He coughed and asked, “Why would you think of taking a bath at this moment?”
Mr. Fuyi laughed. “Are you qualified to ask me? Do I need to get permission from you to take a bath?”
He smiled harmlessly, but the person felt chilled to the core. He suddenly recalled one of the half-orcs who had offended Mr. Fuyi; he was smiling and charming at the time. However, the half-orc was turned to death by the young palace master, and the way he died was terrible!He could not afford to offend this man!
The half-orc took a step back and rushed to apologize.
Mr. Fuyi used his palm and slumped into the water to grab a bunch of petals. He smiled and said, “Maybe the person you are looking for is hidden in the bathtub. Do want to come over and search?”
The four people collectively shuddered and laughed forcefully. “Mr. Fuyi, you must be kidding! You are the special guest of our palace; you definitely would not hide the thief. Since Mr. Fuyi is fine, then we will not bother you anymore. Goodbye.”
They quickly rushed out. When they left, they did not forget to close the door for him.
The footsteps went away, and Gu Xijiu came out from the water. She just took a breath, and Mr. Fuyi suddenly raised his palm and pressed on her head. “Go down!”
Gu Xijiu sank again. Almost at the same time, the door was opened again.
Gu Xijiu heard a sound through the water. “Mr. Fuyi, are you alright?”
It was the voice of the young palace master!
