Chapter 202: Trusting a stranger

The man frowned, and when he looked back, he saw the guards staring at their way with eyes full of desire, and he felt agitated in his heart, “For now, bear with it, you can feed them when the rain stops.”

“But they are crying so hard!” The woman’s voice was full of pity, and she bit her lips, “If they want to look, then they can look. I am a mother, I won’t be afraid of their gaze!”

“No!” The man’s face turned ashen. In fact, these two babies were another man’s bas*tard children. They hadn’t even been born for long, yet they had already changed the woman’s heart. When he thought that for the sake of these two wicked things, he had to let his junior sister be taken advantage of by other men, the man suddenly burst into anger.

“Why?” The woman was also starting to feel very annoyed. Her children’s crying made her panic, and she quickly reacted, “Is it that you don’t care, because they aren’t yours? You clearly said that you would treat them as your own flesh and blood.”

“No… I’m not.” The man’s eyes kept shifting, her words had obviously poked in the center of his thoughts.

Seeing his expression, the woman immediately understood everything, but she also understood that he was not to blame. Thinking of her own experience, she couldn’t help but feel choked with grief in her heart.

“Little lady, why are you crying?”

“If your man is not good to you, I’ll beat him up for you.”

The two had kept their voices low while speaking, so the guards didn’t hear the conversation between them, but when they heard the woman sobbing over there, they exploded with enthusiasm.

“You people only left the capital for a few days and you want to kill? Are you all a bunch of paper soldiers? You all turned soft when you saw a woman cry!” This group of guards were selected by him, so Zhao Qixian was worried that Song Qingshu would be unhappy, and quickly got up to scold them.

“How can that be, Brother Zhao? You know us, we’re just joking, how dare we do anything!” The guards said in succession, and quickly turned to Song Qingshu, “They are used to being vulgar, please don’t mind.”

Song Qingshu nodded slightly, indicating that he didn’t mind, and turned his head to look at the couple, “Madame’s body is weak now, and I’m afraid it would not be good for you to be in wet clothes for long. If you don’t mind, you can go behind me and change into clean clothes. Don’t worry, no one will dare to take a peek here. What do you guys think?” After speaking, he looked at the guards with a smile.

“Lord Song has spoken, how dare we disobey!” The guards laughed, then quickly turned with their backs facing Song Qingshu, and sat straight without looking sideways.

The woman’s face turned red and she was about to refuse, when suddenly a cold wind blew, and sent a shiver down her body. Then, she heard the young man’s voice in her ears, “You can even breastfeed the children behind me, don’t worry, they won’t dare to look, and I won’t look back as well.”

Only she could hear the voice of the young man on the opposite side. Seeing that her companion didn’t seem to notice, the woman glanced at Song Qingshu suspiciously. Then, after hesitating for a moment, she nodded.

When the man saw her walking on the other side, he was taken aback and grabbed her wrist, “He’s just a stranger, do you really believe his words?”

The woman still remembered that young man’s pure and clear eyes just now, and nodded firmly, “I believe that he is not that kind of person.” After she finished speaking, she threw off his arm and walked over.

When passing by Song Qingshu, she bent her knees and gave a salute, then spoke with a voice akin to a mosquito, “Thank you sir.”

Song Qingshu nodded with a smile, and said in a low voice, “Madame, don’t worry, I will never look back.”

“Yes!” The woman softly snorted, took out a pair of clean clothes from her baggage, and was about to change, but when she saw the man (her companion) staring at her, she said with her flushed face, “You go over there and face your back too.”

Hearing her words, the man felt really angry, “I’m your husband now, why can’t you let me look?”

“I’m sorry, Senior Brother, please give me more time.” The woman also understood that this was indeed going a bit too far, but she couldn’t overcome the hurdle in her heart.

“Okay, let’s put this aside for the time being…but you’d rather stay behind a stranger to change clothes, than me staying in front of you?” The man was obviously still angry.

Song Qingshu couldn’t listen anymore, and coldly said, “You can have her stay behind you, if you think that you have the ability to make us not look at the Madame. If not, it would be best for Madame to change her clothes early, otherwise it wouldn’t be funny if she catches a cold.”

The man became stunned, but he had no way to refute, so he walked all the way to the gate of the temple, then sat there and sulked.

Seeing that all the men in the room had turned their backs to her, the woman bit her lip and finally shyly took off her wet clothes. Although she knew that these people couldn’t see her at this moment, she subconsciously squatted down and hid behind Song Qingshu, letting Song Qingshu’s figure completely block her, and then she began to change into new clothes.

“This man is really useless. He left his wife after our Lord said a few words!”

“Yah, he is, isn’t he? It looks like he hasn’t even touched his wife’s body yet.”

“I think it would be better to buy a piece of tofu and kill myself with it if I ended up like this.”

*****

The man at the entrance of the temple felt furious, but what these guards had guessed wasn’t that far from the truth. He had no way to release the rage in his heart, and he just felt like he was about to explode.

“Ah!” The woman exclaimed in a low voice when she saw that her husband had abandoned her, and left her behind with a group of strangers.

‘It’s really a group of pigs!’ Song Qingshu’s face turned black. When he sensed the movement behind him, he comforted her, “Madame, don’t worry, your husband is just standing in the yard and didn’t go far.”

“Young Master, I’m afraid it will take a little more time.” The woman had obviously quickened the process of dressing herself, and soon the cry of the babies in the temple disappeared, then it was replaced by a slight suckling sound.

Song Qingshu knew that she had begun to breastfeed, so he closed his eyes and took a deep breath. There was no scent of makeup on the woman’s body, so it was difficult for people to imagine some things. However, the clean and simple milky smell in the air still made people feel quite good.

After a long time, the woman seemed to have finished breastfeeding the child. After tidying up her bags, she picked up her babies and attempted to walk out. But, perhaps the woman had been sitting cross-legged for too long, and her body was quite weak—she suddenly felt that everything before her eyes went dark and fell toward the ground.

Song Qingshu had noticed her abnormality long ago, and hurriedly stretched out his hand to support her, only to feel something extremely soft to the touch upon contact. After a moment, he felt quite embarrassed, and worried that the other party might mistakenly think that he was taking advantage of her. According to Song Qingshu’s character, if he really wanted to take advantage of this woman, he wouldn’t just beat about the bush, and directly take the bull by the horn. It wouldn’t be too difficult for him to have a round of quick friendly matches. He clearly didn’t want to take advantage, but the situation could cause her to misunderstand. 

It was quite ironic how he wanted to be a gentleman for once, yet his image was destroyed at the last moment. So, he naturally felt extremely uncomfortable and aggrieved.

After a moment of stunned silence, the woman finally came back to her senses. Her first reaction was to look at the young babies in her arms. Seeing that they were held in the hands of the young man, she breathed a long sigh of relief. However, she soon felt that his hand was tightly pressing against her chest in order to hold the child. The woman was extremely sensitive during breastfeeding, so she immediately blushed, “Thank you so much, Young Master.”

“Does Madame not say anything other than thank you?” Song Qingshu smiled and straightened the woman’s body, while looking at her with an amused expression.

Seeing his handsome face, the woman inevitably thought back to that absurd incident in the past, and said with an unnatural expression, “May I dare to ask the Young Master’s name?”

“You and I only meet by chance, and when we walk out of this ruined temple, I’m afraid we will never see each other again, so why should we know each other’s names?” Song Qingshu said while picking up the bag she had dropped on the ground and stuffed it back into her hands.

The woman was stunned for a moment, and walked to the opposite side with her young sons in her arms. Yet, she still looked at Song Qingshu from time to time.

Zhang Kangnian and Zhao Qixian glanced at each other, gave a silent thumbs up, and lip-synched to convey their message, “So high, the skill is really high! As soon as Lord Song makes a move, it’s bound to be extraordinary!”

The woman’s husband also came back from the outside. Seeing his wife who had already changed clothes, the cold snorted and sat on the side, sulking again.

Seeing all this, the woman secretly sighed in her heart, ‘Senior Brother really loves me, otherwise he wouldn’t have married me when I was pregnant before marriage. It’s a pity that he is a bit rude. Even if he had been wholeheartedly taking care of us mother and sons during this period, he would lose his temper from time to time. I am not made of stone, I am sure I would have loved him back before long. But, it’s a pity that the more he is like this, the more I look down on him…’

While she was contemplating, a group of people suddenly broke into the temple, each with a sword on their waist, and none of them seemed to be good people.

The couple thought that they were also here to hide from the rain, and they didn’t care much. Who knew that one of the newcomers smiled and said, “The Flying Steeds Security Service is degrading day by day. Now it has only two members, and one of them is still holding two babies, hahahaha!”

When he called out their origins, the couple became surprised, they quietly held the weapons in their hands, and looked at everyone vigilantly, “Who are you, and what do you want to do?”

“Heh, if you are the Security Service, then we are the bandits. So what do you think we want to do?” The bandit leader coldly snorted, then glanced at Song Qingshu and others, feeling extremely worried in his heart, “Friends, this is a matter between us and the Flying Steeds Security Service. We are here to settle our grievances with the Flying Steeds Security Service, please abide by the rules of the wulin and do not interfere.”

Song Qingshu nodded slightly, and the guards who were eager to take action sat down one after another.

Seeing that Song Qingshu was being so indifferent, the woman was extremely disappointed. But, after thinking about it, she understood that they were indeed not obliged to help them like bodyguards, and they may be worried about breaking the rules of wulin as well. However, she was still worried about her two sons. After hesitating for a moment, she walked over and put them in front of Song Qingshu, “I know that this is being too presumptuous, but can I ask the Young Master to help me take care of these two children?”

Song Qingshu became stunned for a moment, then looked down at the two identical jade-like babies in front of him and nodded subconsciously. The woman smiled gratefully, then took out a short sword and rushed over to the battle, intending to rescue her husband who was already in grave danger.
