It turned out that when Bing Xue’er heard Song Qingshu’s method of dual cultivation, she was also shocked. Although she had a good impression of Song Qingshu, she still missed Hu Yidao more in her heart, and she was absolutely unwilling to commit herself to him just to survive.
It’s a pity that Bing Xue’er was seriously injured at the time, and she couldn’t speak at all, so she could only make a secret decision— if Song Qingshu really used that method to save her, she would accept it calmly, and then she would end the unfortunate relationship between the two. After that, she would drift away and completely break up with him.
But after listening to Song Qingshu’s muttering, Bing Xue’er finally understood how much this man understood her own thoughts.
Hearing Song Qingshu say that he wanted to reopen another dantian, although he didn’t mention how dangerous it would be, how could Bing Xue’er, as a member of the martial arts world, not know?
This man could save her easily, but chose the most dangerous method in the end. Bing Xue’er was able to feel his sincere feelings, and as she stroked Song Qingshu’s cheek with her fingertips, her heart gradually softened.
When Song Qingshu woke up, he found Bing Xue’er lying while resting her head on the edge of the bed. Under the candlelight, there was a layer of crystal luster on her pure and flawless face.
He couldn’t help reaching out to touch her face, but his movement woke up Bing Xue’er who was in a state of light sleep.
“You… woke up?” Bing Xue’er looked at him in surprise, but for some reason, this time, she subconsciously didn’t call him Brother-in-law again.
“Well, how long have I been asleep?” Song Qingshu looked out the window worriedly, fearing that if he fell asleep for half a month like those protagonists in novels, it would be a big disaster.
“It’s not yet dawn, Brother-in-law has only slept for more than an hour.” Bing Xue’er said softly.
Song Qingshu stretched his waist, and felt that the True Qi in his body had continued to flow again. Although it was not as abundant as his peak state, it was still good enough, and he would be able to recover in a short time.
“Sister-in-law, before I passed out, you…” Thinking of what he heard when he passed out, Song Qingshu cautiously asked.
“I don’t want to hear it, and I don’t want Brother-in-law doesn’t to say it.” Bing Xue’er quickly stretched out her finger and pressed it on his lips, and a blush appeared on her face.
“Okay, if you tell me not to say it, I won’t say it.” Feeling the icy cold feeling on his lips, Song Qingshu was filled with pity when he saw her occasionally showing a shy look on her face.
Bing Xue’er pulled her finger back in embarrassment, and the room quickly fell into an inexplicable silence.
‘I can’t keep silent like this forever!’ Song Qingshu decided to break the silence first, “Sister-in-law, you haven’t yet practiced the Jade Heart Sutra, so please don’t go after Murong Jingyue alone.”
Bing Xue’er pursed her lips and smiled, “Could it be that Brother-in-law is willing to accompany me to go after Murong Jingyue?”
Song Qingshu almost blurted out, “Yes.” but thinking of the situation in Shandong, his lips only parted slightly, but he still didn’t say it in the end.
“Don’t worry, I know my Brother-in-law has something important to do, so why would I want you to accompany me.” Bing Xue’er smiled softly.
Song Qingshu heaved a long sigh, “But I really don’t want you to take risks alone.”
Bing Xueer’s eyelashes fluttered slightly, as if she was hesitating, then she softly said, “Then, I won’t go.”
“What?” Song Qingshu looked at her in disbelief.
“I can see that Brother-in-law seems to have something important to do, but now that you have suffered serious internal injuries because of saving me, how can I have the heart to let you go back to Shandong alone? If Brother-in-law doesn’t dislike my low martial arts, I… I want to accompany you there, and take care of you.” As Bing Xue’er finished her sentence, her face turned red, and she didn’t dare to look him in the eye.
“Why would I mind, haha, I wish for it with all my heart, haha…” Song Qingshu said in glee.
Bing Xue’er feigned anger and said, “Brother-in-law is really laughing at me.”
“No, no, absolutely not!” Song Qingshu waved his hands with a serious face, but his heart was already full of joy.
Bing Xueer’s expression suddenly changed, “But Brother-in-law, you have to promise me one thing.”
Song Qingshu was agitated, and he blurted out, “Not just one thing, even if it’s a thousand or ten thousand things, I will promise you!”
Bing Xue’er gave him an annoyed look, “Stop bragging, if I asked you to accompany me to chase after Murong Jingyue now, will you agree?”
“See, you can’t.” Seeing Song Qingshu’s embarrassed expression, Bing Xue’er chuckled, “I just want my Brother-in-law to agree to accompany me to track down Murong Jingyue’s whereabouts when you are free in the future.”
“Of course!” Hearing what Bing Xue’er said, Song Qingshu couldn’t help but be ecstatic.
“Also, umm…” Bing Xue’er suddenly became coy.
Song Qingshu hurriedly asked, “What else?”
“It’s nothing.” Bing Xue’er shook her head. Originally, she wanted Song Qingshu to promise that he would treat her with courtesy along the way, but she hesitated and swallowed that sentence back.
Maybe in her heart, she felt that going through so many things had already proved that Song Qingshu was a gentleman, so she didn’t need to remind him of such things; or she was worried that saying such a thing would be too insulting, and it might hurt his heart.
Seeing her tired face, Song Qingshu quickly got off the bed and said, “Sister-in-law, go to the bed and have some rest, your body is weak and you have just recovered from internal injuries.” He helped her up while talking.
“It’s okay, you’ve exhausted your internal energy, so you should rest… ahhh!” It turned out that Bing Xue’er had been lying on the bedside for a long time, and when she got up, her legs went numb, her posture became a little unstable, and she fell into Song Qingshu’s arms.
“You can’t even stand still, you have to rest.” Song Qingshu smiled, picked her up in a princess carry, and then gently put her on the bed, “Sister-in-law, just rest, I have some profound skills, and I have to meditate for a while. Get some sleep.”
Bing Xue’er hummed softly, and lay on her side on the bed. She quietly watched Song Qingshu who was sitting not far away meditating for some time, and her eyelids gradually closed.
It began to rain outside the window, and after an unknown amount of time passed, Song Qingshu suddenly felt something. He opened his eyes, looked in the direction of the door, and soon there was a knock on the door.
“Excuse me, is the owner here? My wife and I have been traveling all night, we didn’t expect to encounter a sudden rainstorm, and we want to borrow your place to hide from the rain.”
The man’s voice is full of vigor, so he must have certain attainments in internal strength.
Bing Xue’er also woke up, and looked at Song Qingshu with caution. Song Qingshu signaled her not to get up, and walked to the door by himself, and put down the bedroom curtain to block Bing Xue’er’s figure.
After opening the door, he saw a couple in their early thirties standing outside. The man was wearing a black shirt, a black soft hat, and a long sword in a black scabbard on his waist. The woman had a long sword with a white sheath tied with a scarlet ribbon on her waist.
The man was quite handsome, and the woman was elegant and delicate.
Song Qingshu secretly complimented the pair, and seeing that the two of them had obviously been drenched in a lot of rain, so he hurriedly invited them in.
The two people outside the door were also surprised when they saw Song Qingshu. They thought that the person opening the door would be a mountain villager, but they didn’t expect that it would be such a suave young man. They hesitated for a moment, then walked in with clasped fists.
