Treating The Injuries

Di Fuyi’s black hair was nicely tied and secured with a jade hairpin. A butterfly designed mask covered his face, leaving only his faint red lips and clear black eyes exposed. His body was completely soaked in the water full of herbs, revealing only his shoulders. His skin was soft and smooth, but this fact did not diminish his masculinity.
His toned physique added nobility to his figure of perfect elegance. His arms rested on the edge of the tub while the water rippled around his body, along with the floating herbs. He sat casually in the tub with his legs crossed, giving off a sense of overwhelming charm.
Gu Xijiu did not say anything, but the servant was obviously awestruck by his charm. She stood with her cheeks flushed.
“Leave now!” Di Fuyi commanded.
The was standing next to Gu Xijiu at the time, giving her support. Her heart started to throb, but she refused to go out. “This… This cannot be. I need to support Miss Gu. She is too weak to sit herself up,” she emphasized.
Di Fuyi said nothing more. This time, he aimed a strike at her. He flickered a spell and a glimpse of light flashed by, carrying the servant straight out of the room.
“Bang!” The door was shut, once again. They were the only ones in the room now.
Gu Xijiu’s body was really weak. Without support, she could not even sit up. She collapsed and slowly sank into the water. Luckily, Di Fuyi saw it and acted quickly. As soon as the servant was gone, he quickly held Gu Xijiu on her shoulders to helped her sit upright. He made contact with her bare shoulders and could not help but feel a burning sensation.
The temperature of the water was hot, but his palms felt hotter. She could feel the heat, slowly entering her veins. Her pale face started to flush crimson as a result of the heat transfer.She felt more awake in the water.
Bewildered, she could not help but look at Shen Nianmo with a mixture of admiration and frustration. She really could not understand what the child was thinking. He should have known that everything she said was to vent her rage. Instead of disregarding her words, he took them seriously and treated her like his fiancée.
In order to carry out the treatment, she risked everything to ask Long Siye for his help. She could not care less about the courtesy between a man and a woman anymore. If the one who came in were Long Siye, she would be able to keep calm and cooperate with him. Instead, the one who came in was Shen Nianmo.
“Distracted?” Di Fuyi asked.
Gu Xijiu looked at him with a sense of helplessness in her eyes. “Nianmo…”
Di Fuyi let go of her shoulder, and she started sinking again. Her shoulders, neck, chin, and lips slowly went into the water. Before her entire head was covered in water, he raised his hands to support her and keep her head afloat.
He was expecting her to be scared and afraid. On the contrary, she never lost her composure. She looked at him as if he was a naughty child.
“Call me Fuyi!” He reminded her.
Gu Xijiu did not want to argue with him. “Fuyi, you…”
Before she could finish her sentence, he continued, “You do not have to say anything. I know what you want to tell me. Are you going to say that those were things you said out of anger? And, you never really meant them and that you only see me as a child? A target of your mission?”
