Duo Long and Zhang Kangnian looked at each other, and the same thought flashed in their hearts, ‘Brother Wei’s wives really are the best, and all the rest of them, they get terribly jealous of other women.’
After Shui Sheng’s episode of impulsiveness passed, she couldn’t help but regret what she did. She glanced at Song Qingshu in fear. But when she saw that he was still calm, she couldn’t help but spit out her tongue. It was really cute. Fortunately, they were far away from the crowd, otherwise this group of wild men would be able to see her. She was obviously dressed in men’s clothing, but she had the gestures of a little girl, which would have caused another great disturbance.
Xia Qingqing couldn’t help but stomp her feet, and angrily glanced at Song Qingshu. She was thinking how this Wei Xiaobao was so stupid, the answer was right before his eyes, but it was taken away by other men. Now she had to start thinking about what to do later. She had to find another reason for inviting him to her room.
Song Qingshu didn’t take it seriously at first, but just now, when his eyes met Xia Qingqing’s smiling and angry eyes, his heart could not help but be shaken. He cleared his throat and said, “I happen to have a couplet of my own as well. I hope Miss Youyou can give me some advice.”
Xia Qingqing’s eyes lit up, and she thought it was just right, even if he was not right, she had the right to invite him into her boudoir anyway, ‘This lady is the judge, and I have the final say tonight!’
“Master Wei is very talented, it must be something extraordinary?”
Song Qingshu stood up, used his inner qi, and sent his answer to everyone’s ears, “Miss Youyou’s upper couplet is ‘Smoke locks the pond with willows’, and then the lower couplet should be ‘Burning peach trees in Jinjiang dyke’.”
After every couplet was presented regardless of good or bad, everyone on the scene would immediately comment on it. But as soon as Song Qingshu’s voice fell, the scene fell into a strange tranquility.
Wang Yuyan’s beautiful eyes sparkled, and she quietly glanced at the profile of Song Qingshu, feeling very melancholy, “If only my cousin had his literary talent, how great would that be.”
Xia Qingqing glanced at him in surprise, then looked around, pursed her lips and smiled, “Master Wei’s couplet is the best tonight, does anyone have any other opinion?”
“Agreed!” A group of people applauded. Everyone here wandered around the world of pleasure houses, so their demeanor was still a bit vulgar. But, at the end of the day, everyone here was a guest, so their bottom line as a guest was still there. Song Qingshu’s couplet was indeed the best in the audience.
“If this is the case, then Youyou will invite Young Master Wei to go upstairs.” Xia Qingqing smiled, leaving a graceful back that made the audience drool and disappeared in the back hall.
Soon, the maidservant came forward to invite him, “Master Wei, our Miss would like to meet you.”
Song Qingshu was struggling in his heart, should he go or not? If he goes, his glorious and stalwart image would inevitably be damaged. If he doesn’t go… Well, would he still be a man!
With a smile on his face, Song Qingshu politely followed the maid, and walked upstairs under the envy and jealous eyes of a group of men.
“Big pervert, dead thief!” Shui Sheng felt irritated, so she sat down and kept pouring herself a few glasses of wine.
“Sister Shui, Young Master Song is so elegant and extraordinary. This matter may not be as you think.” Wang Yuyan blushed, she couldn’t say that obscene word. But after seeing Shui Sheng acting so jealous, she had to say some words of consolation.
“What he does has nothing to do with me.” Shui Sheng smiled reluctantly, resting her cheek on her hand, sitting in a dazed state. Her heart was filled with hate.
“Uh, why is the hall so deserted, where is Big Brother Song?” Wei Xiaobao just came back and asked curiously in his heart. He slipped into the wine cellar by carriage and ran into a young maid and a servant. They were having a love affair. So, he had to hide in the wine cellar for a long time, and that’s why it took so long for him to come back.
“What!” Hearing that Song Qingshu was invited by the courtesan Miss Youyou her into her boudoir, Wei Xiaobao’s expression turned strange and heartbroken, ‘Fu*k! This Grandpa had to go through a lot of hardships before I could change the wine sent to the courtesan’s room to a bottle of spring wine. But it was all in vain…And now that pretty boy will benefit from it!’
Uh, speaking of that pretty boy, his luck with beauties is simply out of this world. Wei Xiaobao glanced at Wang Yuyan and Shui Sheng who hadn’t paid attention to him at all, and felt bitter in his heart.
Following the maid to a quiet hut, Song Qingshu smelled the sweet smell of rouge. In the past, he had to attend some banquets with some business partners for a while, but he did not visit these romantic places. He believed in single minded love in the past, and that cost him everything.
“Lord Wei, please come in and sit down.” While Song Qingshu was reminiscing about the past, a sweet and seductive voice came from behind the bead curtain.
Sitting so close to her, Song Qingshu now had the opportunity to look at her more clearly, and he noticed that she had changed into a light green gauze skirt, with long dark hair scattered on her shoulders. It gave her a leisurely aura full of endless charm. Her face has light makeup, and under the willowy eyebrows was a pair of watery eyes dripping with sweetness.
Song Qingshu’s face turned a little red when he was swept all over by her eyes, and he subconsciously lowered his head and did not dare to look at her again.
Xia Qingqing smiled in her heart, it was rumored that Wei Xiaobao was greedy and lusty, but who knew he was so shy.
As a married woman, her youthfulness of a young girl had long since faded. In addition, she was born in the world of wulin, so she didn’t have much propriety of a noble lady in her words and deeds. She just wants to complete the task without revealing any flaws, so she didn’t mind doing these things at all. She continued to show her charming gestures that originally belonged to Yuan Chengzhi alone.
Song Qingshu was a little bit annoyed about why he acted like a novice virgin. He had never experienced this feeling when he did the deed with a certain someone. So he immediately straightened up his thoughts, raised his head and asked with a smile, “May I know what Miss Youyou’s third question is?”
“The night is long, and there is time, so why is Young Master being so impatient?” Xia Qingqing smiled sweetly, “Today I witnessed that the Young Master was a man of great talent, and I admire you so much. So, let me first pay my respects to the Young Master.”
Seeing her slender hand holding the wine glass, Song Qingshu’s mouth turned a bit dry, he stretched out his hand to take it, and accidentally touched her soft skin.
A gleam of cold flashed in Xia Qingqing’s eyes. She thought, ‘If it wasn’t to delay the time and wait for Big Brother Yuan and the others to clean up the guards outside, I would have killed you with a single sword strike.’
Song Qingshu was unaware of the murderous intent hidden in her gentle visage, and drank the wine in the cup. The wine poured into his stomach, and it instantly turned into heat, but it could not erase the feeling of coldness that came from her skin. It was a very comfortable feeling.
“Where is Miss Youyou from?” Song Qingshu asked. In his previous life, he often laughed at a friend who continued to pursue a woman every time he went to the club. He didn’t expect that he would feel the same at this moment. He regretted that such an outstanding person fell into such a dirty place.
“This servant has long forgotten.” Xia Qingqing’s eyes flashed with nostalgia, and she smiled, “Tonight, the city of Liangcheng is beautiful . We should talk about the wind, the flowers, the snow and the moon, why bother to talk about the sad things.” The misery and helplessness in her expression were performed vividly.
“I was impolite.” Thinking that what he said just now might have caused her to remember her life’s sadness, Song Qingshu suddenly felt a little sorry, “I apologize with this glass of wine.”
“The Young Master is my guest, how dare I let the Young Master drink this boring wine alone?” Xia Qingqing smiled lightly, then picked up the bottle replaced by Wei Xiaobao, poured some in a glass, and drank it all in one go.
