Chapter 104 Part 1

    Yun Qian Meng had not anticipated that Chu Fei Yang would make such a move, and was somewhat out of it for a moment, only feeling soft yet cool lips against hers. She was shy in her heart, yet her eyes showed dull fury.

    She had agreed to believe in Chu Fei Yang, and she would also be willing to try to accept him, but was he not moving too fast? Were they progressing with their relationship too fast? Do other ladies from different family discuss passion and talk of love straight to the point like the two of them had? Were others like Chu Fei Yang who would speak so bluntly?

    Yun Qian Meng's eyes stared directly at Chu Fei Yang, his dark eyes slightly constricted, those long and curly eyelashes obscured the dazzling light of his eyes. Yun Qian Meng sensed the potential danger Chu Fei Yang posed at this moment, her mind quickly thought through how she should react, but Chu Fei Yang's gentle sigh echoed in her ear.

    "Meng'er, you are not concentrating." Chu Fei Yang said in an accusing tone, and Yun Qian Meng's focus quickly shifted towards him.

    She saw his dejected gaze as his lips withdrew from the side of her face, but his hands were still grabbing her shoulders. They did not seem to give the slightest indication of releasing her, so Yun Qian Meng only stared at him discontentedly.

    Her brows raised up slightly at Chu Fei Yang's change of expression. The weak fury in his eyes moments ago had already dissipated and was replaced by a helpless expression. Her heart was completely well aware that the real Chu Fei Yang was not someone who could be easily defeated. He would not commit to something without any assurance.

    The admonition made Yun Qian Meng unsure whether she should respond or remain silent. In the end she could only gaze at Chu Fei Yang, so the both of them were now staring at each other.

    "Are you tired?" Yun Qian Meng's eyes were unblinking, while Chu Fei Yang's concealed a smile, yet he seemed to regret having spoken out.

    "Yes." Yun Qian Meng responded truthfully.

    Since she had already agreed to give him a change, she need not hide her feelings in front of him. In fact, when the opposite party was Chu Fei Yang, concealment was indeed very tiring to do.

    People lacking in determination and patience would definitely not be able to remain calm and composed under Chu Fei Yang's scrutinizing gaze.

    When Chu Fei Yang heard Yun Qian Meng's truthful response, his lips curved into a smile and his dark eyes flickered with endless joy, while his words appeared to be fully content when he said, "Since you are already tired, why don't you hurry and look away then?"

    Such stubborn girl, even if she was tired, she would not easily concede.

    Yun Qian Meng's expression was somewhat embarrassed. Her lips immediately curled into a frown and she muttered, "How dare you ask me to look away first."

    Chu Fei Yang's heart stirred at her rare femininity so he immediately surrendered and said, "Since that is the case, then I lose this time."

    Finished speaking, Chu Fei Yang then released his hold on her and immediately leaned against the carriage wall, closing his eyes to meditate.

    Seeing him like this, Yun Qian Meng also leaned against the carriage wall and slowly closed her eyes to rest.

    Who would have thought that once she relaxed, a strong wind with a distinctive male musk fluttered across. Before Yun Qian Meng had the time to open her eyes, her lips were again occupied by another, slightly cooler ones...

    But unlike the previous one, the execution was filled with determination and would not allow Yun Qian Meng to shrink back. The thin lips tightly stuck onto hers as Yun Qian Meng felt something tightened around her waist, her whole body was then being drawn into Chu Fei Yang's firm and warm embrace. The masculine air immediately surrounded Yun Qian Meng, filling the tip of her nose with Chu Fei Yang's distinctive scent...

    Feeling two glowing eyes staring at her face, Yun Qian Meng opened her eyes, permitting Chu Fei Yang to pour his full attention onto her. His lips were still tightly attached to hers, but he had not made any further actions, which allowed Yun Qian Meng to slightly relax. As Yun Qian Meng's eyes were clearly staring at Chu Fei Yang, the two of them just stared at each other in silence.

    Chu Fei Yang then laughed. He then freed her, only to bring her closer into his arms as he quietly mumbled, "Staying a couple for the rest of our lives. Can you guess my decision, Meng'er?"

    Upon hearing these words, Yun Qian Meng's ears immediately perked up. Chu Fei Yang had not responded to her last time, so she thought that he paid the matter no attention, yet this man had actually clearly remembered her words; a smile bloomed on her face.

    But, hearing the latter words, Yun Qian Meng's brows slightly knitted for he had asked her to guess.

    If Chu Fei Yang's thoughts were that easy to guess, then he would not have assumed such a highly respected position as one of the prime ministers.

    His thoughts were deep like the ocean, and one simply could not completely fathom them. Yet here he was, willing to waste his time on somebody of little value like her, this fact alone gave Yun Qian Meng's mind some assurance.

    Yun Qian Meng lifted her eyes and saw Chu Fei Yang's staring fixedly right at her. Concealed deep within his dark orbs was fierce determination. Yun Qian Meng smiled, gently opening her red lips and slowly remarked with confidence, "Xiangye, have you agreed to my request already?"

    Chu Fei Yang had not expected that Yun Qian Meng would easily guess his intention. Even though he was surprised, he was not the slightest bit upset and the faint smile in his eyes slowly transformed into a deeper one, following which he said jokingly, "Seriously, no man would stand a chance."

    Being intelligent and self-confident was so distinctly Yun Qian Meng, no wonder Jiang Mu Chen was regretting it now. Fortunately, he had taken the initiative to grab her, or else the one who would be upset, beating at his chest and stamping their feet would be him.

    When Yun Qian Meng heard Chu Fei Yang's words, she gave him a disapproving expression and almost instantly blurted out, "Who said women were not as good as men?"

    Chu Fei Yang watched her delicate face that was full of confidence, her response had echoed in his ears without any hint of hesitation. The smile in his eyes gradually faded, replaced by a pondering expression, after a long moment he replied, "Even though that is the case, you are still not allowed to run into danger. If you do the next time around, I will not allow you to get away with it so easily like today."

    A flame of anger puffed out from Yun Qian Meng's eyes, and she immediately retorted, "I am not getting away with it. On the contrary, xiangye is repeatedly being disrespectful towards me. Because xiangye has a high authority, as a woman, I have no way to complain and can only express my true feelings in a few statements. Yet they have caused xiangye to fly into a rage and even make threats."

    After speaking, those watery eyes took a glimpse at Chu Fei Yang. Unknowingly, the look she gave him was one of her rare pouts, making Yun Qian Meng's extremely calm face increasingly more elegant and attractive.

    Chu Fei Yang gently laughed because of Yun Qian Meng's words. His unsophisticated laughter transmitted outwards from his chest, vibrating through Yun Qian Meng's ears until they felt numb. She inadvertently distance the two of them, which Chu Fei Yang did not mind too much. Chu Fei Yang lowered his head to watch her slightly frowning and delicate face attentively, following which he said, "Guileful and insinuating, but clever and eloquent."

    No wonder those other xiaojie could not rival her, and even he himself whom he considered eloquent was not her equal, as her extremely clever responses were something to be admired. It truly made her different from those xiaojie who were only jealous of another receiving affection.

    At Chu Fei Yang's not-so-good assessment of her, Yun Qian Meng wrinkled her elegant nose incredulously. She disapprovingly shot a cold glance at Chu Fei Yang, and immediately retorted, "Better than remaining silent after being bullied by others."

    Her words startled Chu Fei Yang, his hand gently patted Yun Qian Meng's shoulder, as he exclaimed, "As long as I'm here, nobody will ever bully you!"

    Yun Qian Meng was touched by his words, she had not expected that Chu Fei Yang would ever say such words. She shifted her face in discomfort, but her blushing ears exposed her true feelings.

    Yun Qian Meng expressing her rare lady-like shyness had not escaped from the scrutiny of Chu Fei Yang's bright eyes. Although he enjoyed watching her calm confidence as she bashed out all her enemies, he admired her her shyness and feminine posture too much that he was not ready to part with them. But, he refrained from commenting so Yun Qian Meng would not fly into a rage out of embarrassment, that was after all, detrimental to him.

    "Regarding Xia mama, I will have people investigate it, so you need not be constantly on the move between Tian Fu Lou and xiangfu. Allow Mi mama and the others to return, or else I will not feel at ease with only Mu Chun serving you." Chu Fei Yang said after a long moment, his eyes looked sincerely concerned.

    Yun Qian Meng realized that Chu Fei Yang must have known the matter regarding Xia mama. So she did not bother to hide anything. "It seems that the one who had Xia mama and Ying Qiu attacked are against Fu Guo Gongfu. Or else, how could a common thief know about the priceless Hu Ge? And then why would they intentionally destroy the herbal medicine, which would have been of no use for them, during the robbery?"

    Chu Fei Yang quietly listened to Yun Qian Meng's analysis. He attentively watched her earnest and meticulous profile and it hit a soft spot in the corner of his heart, causing him to expose a faint smile and his gaze became more and more gentle.

    "Since that is the case, then Xia mama must be handed over to me for protection. With you always appearing at Tian Fu Lou, someone with bad intentions might discover them. What if something were to happen? How can I not be worried?" especially since Tian Fu Lou was part of Rong Yun He's property and Chu Fei Yang always had a bad feeling about him. After all, it was only today that Yun Qian Meng said she would try to accept him, so that meant that she still had not completely accepted him. This matter kept Chu Fei Yang's confidence on tenterhooks for fear of not being able to capture her heart.

    While Yun Qian Meng had not even been thinking about Rong Yun He when she heard Chu Fei Yang's question. She only analyzed Xia mama's situation and finally arrived at a conclusion. "Since that is the case, then we'll do as you say."

    Seeing her in glowing spirits, for a moment, Chu Fei Yang was somehow curious about Yun Qian Meng's way of thinking. His brows raised as he observed her slightly excited face, his own mood went up and down following Yun Qian Meng's expression.

    Yun Qian Meng then gestured for Chu Fei Yang to lower his head, so she could muttered some words in his ears.

    Chu Fei Yang's brows wrinkled at her suggestions, his eyes showed some disapproval as he said, "This won't do!"

    Yun Qian Meng's enthusiasm stopped short and her face suddenly went serious as she stubbornly said, "Let's just settle it this way."

    Chu Fei Yang's lips opened and closed wordlessly, while Yun Qian Meng's face was radiant with delight. He had originally planned to persuade her, yet he was unable to speak out. He was contemplating whether or not to strengthen his protection on her, in order to avoid her going too far and provoking those vicious and merciless people.

    For a moment it was quiet inside the carriage as it had already been traveling for quite a long while, then a voice of the guard echoed from the outside, "Master, we have arrived at Yun xiangfu."

    The carriages from Fu Guo Gongfu arrived just then in front of xiangfu, but before Yun Qian Meng had dismounted, Mu Chun had rushed towards the carriage to place a foot stool on the ground, and waited for Yun Qian Meng to come out.

    Collecting her thoughts, Yun Qian Meng lifted her eyes to look at Chu Fei Yang, she slightly nodded to him and made to step out of the carriage.

    Unexpectedly though, her wrist was quickly grabbed by Chu Fei Yang's huge hand that slightly exerted some force. Yun Qian Meng was back in his embrace once more, his deep and low yet concerned voice echoed beside her, "Remember my words, don't get yourself involved in danger."

    Recognizing his good intentions, Yun Qian Meng immediately nodded, following which she pushed Chu Fei Yang away. She then quickly lifted the curtain and stepped down from the carriage.

    "Xiaojie, why are you blushing slightly? Could it be due to the weather?" Mu Chun asked in puzzlement. She then stretched her head back to check the weather, feeling the clear and refreshing autumn weather without so much heat, she grew even more curious.

    Upon hearing Mu Chun's words, Yun Qian Meng quickly shot a cold glance at her. Then, with a calm and cold expression, she took her seat inside the palanquin.

    Being glared at for no reason, Mu Chun scratched her own nose, thinking that she might have said something wrong that angered xiaojie. Without thinking further, she followed behind the palanquin as it entered xiangfu.

    Meanwhile, inside the horse carriage, Chu Fei Yang's eyes were following the palanquin as it entered xiangfu, afterwhich he commanded the guard to drive the horse carriage away.

    At night, the moon was cold as water, as summertime gradually passed. The autumn night became cooler and more refreshing, making people less jittery under the scorching summer heat.

    Yun Qian Meng was holding scrolls as she sat beside the window, yet she was not in the mood to read. Her thoughts wandered back to the conversation she had with Chu Fei Yang earlier.

    Her heart could not refrain from smiling. She had never expected anything to happen with this strange and ancient man, but her very own experience explained that anything was possible.

    What really amazed Yun Qian Meng was that Chu Fei Yang indeed had the ability to distract a person's mind, no wonder Hai Tian became so obsessed with him.

    "Xiaojie!" Mu Chun called out in a low voice as she quietly stepped into the bedroom when she saw Yun Qian Meng deep in thought.

    "What's the matter?" putting down the scrolls in her hands, Yun Qian Meng neatly stood up and moved about, so as to avoid her body from becoming stiff.

    Mu Chun watched as Yun Qian Meng stretched her limbs. She had an amazed expression, yet she already knew that her xiaojie was different from all the others. She did not show her doubt, and simply responded to Yun Qian Meng's question, "Xiaojie, based on the report from Su yiniang's yatou, she said that the date of the childbirth will be arriving soon. Su yiniang was planning to let Wang mama invite yiniang's sister-in-law from the Su Family over here to accompany her."

    Yun Qian Meng slightly nodded, she had Mu Chun lean closer in order to whisper instructions in her ear...
