Chapter 167 Consummate Our Relationship?
Yun Shimo suddenly sensed danger and he hadn’t expected Hua Qiyue to attack him, so he tightened his grip around her and fell into the bath together with her. They fell into the bath with a loud splash.
Hua Qiyue’s plan was foiled because of Yun Shimo’s actions. She ended up swallowing huge gulps of water and coughed so hard that her lungs hurt.
Yun Shimo’s face darkened as he placed a hand on her back. A warm current traveled from his palm to her back and Hua Qiyue’s body shook as the water in her lungs were all squeezed out by the warm current.
She coughed a few more times and the pain in her lungs finally left her.
This was when she finally realized that she was in the bath together with Yun Shimo. His clothes were completely soaked and their bodies were pressed up against each other with no gap between their bodies at all.
Hua Qiyue suddenly noticed a strange change had taken place in the body of the man who stood behind her, and there was something against her waist…
Yun Shimo was much taller than her so Hua Qiyue could sense what that thing was since she had once been married.
“You bastard! Let me go!” Hua Qiyue exclaimed in both embarrassment and anger. Anima energy condensed in her hands once more and she slashed down hard at the man behind her.
Yun Shimo did not dodge and thus, Hua Qiyue’s hands that had transformed into swords landed hard on his body.
“Hiss…” he sucked in cold air through his teeth. She might still be weaker than him but she was still of the Great Completeness of the Cultivation Dimension!
She had hacked down so hard that he felt like his bones were about to break.
“Humph, Hua Qiyue, if you injure your husband, how am I going to enjoy lovemaking with my wife in the future?” Yun Shimo said calmly without even blushing.
Hua Qiyue was so angry that she immediately used her Spirit Summoning Art and said, “Get lost!”
Yun Shimo realized to his shock that a mysterious force had forced him to retreat and that he could no longer control his body and his spiritual energy!
What kind of technique was that?
Yun Shimo was secretly astonished. He retreated to a nearby corner and silently observed her.
He was a Moon Erosion Stage Qi Artist, so unlike the others, he was aware that Hua Qiyue had used her Spirit Summoning Art on him.
This was also why Tianpi had cautioned Hua Qiyue to be careful when using the Spirit Summoning Art against ancient or powerful people.
Yun Shimo still hadn’t regained control over his own actions but he could tell that she was controlling him with a strange technique.
Hua Qiyue looked coldly at Yun Shimo and said, “Humph, who is to say that you can take advantage of me while I can’t do the same to you? Yun Shimo, undress yourself!”
The Spirit Summoning Art would indeed force the person who was under its influence to obey the commands of the person who cast this spell. Thus, Yun Shimo looked at her incredulously even as his hand reached toward the opening of his robes.
Hua Qiyue blinked at him and wondered if she would have the guts to face him if he were to be naked.
Yun Shimo shed his outer robes even as his face darkened and was wearing nothing but a thin unlined garment.
She quickly glanced at him and saw that he was indeed tall and muscular and a part of his body was already standing proudly at attention.
She immediately blushed and was too embarrassed to continue looking at him. She turned to walk outside outside and guessed that she would be deep trouble once the effects of the Spirit Summoning Art wore off.
“Where do you think you’re going?” a teasing voice rang out in her ear. She was completely taken aback and when she turned around, she found herself in his soaking wet embrace!
“Yun Shimo… you… how could you manage to overcome it so quickly…”
She was unable to wrap her head around it. Didn’t Yun Shimo fall under her Spirit Summoning Art? How did he manage to escape its control so quickly? Was this technique ineffective against those who were more powerful than her?
Yun Shimo wrapped both arms tightly around her waist and looked at her with a playful smile. This was the first time she had seen him smiling that way and she couldn’t stop goosebumps from rising all over her arm.
“Spirit Summoning Art… is that it? Hmm, I didn’t expect my wife to be so clever and for her to know such a powerful technique. However, the effects of this technique wouldn’t last long for me,” Yun Shimo said and his voice was exceptionally tender as he breathed hot air down her ears, causing Hua Qiyue to shiver in spite of herself.
She said angrily, “Yun Shimo, let go of me!”
However, the fragrant herbal smell from his body tested her resolve. It was as though she had seen a beautiful herbal garden and the man in black standing in the garden was looking at her with a gentleness that made her heart race…
Something soft dropped on her cheek and tenderly traced the shape of her face and her lips.
He turned Hua Qiyue around to face him and she struggled but to no avail. She was simply not his match since he was one level above her in terms of cultivation.
Yun Shimo gently demanded more of her and slowly placed her by the bath. His tenderness caused her entire body to tremble uncontrollably and his dark eyes flashed with wild abandon.
There was something uniquely attractive about this woman that drew him to her. He had never taken an interest in women but he wanted every single part of her.
His large hands roamed gently but hotly around her body and Hua Qiyue suddenly came back to her senses and quickly grabbed the hand that was moving even further downward, “Don’t….”
“Do you want to wait till we’re married?” Yun Shimo looked hotly at Hua Qiyue and there was a tinge of wildness in his voice that made her blush even more furiously.
She gasped softly and a charming blush stained her cheeks, but she was completely unaware that her reaction to him made his heart race even more and made her even more attractive to him.
“Umm.. yes, we’ll have to wait till the wedding,” Hua Qiyue managed to eke out with some difficulty. She felt an urge to do something rash but she told herself that she had to wait till the wedding!
Yun Shimo gradually took his hands off her and the wildness cleared from his eyes.
“Girl, I’ll let you off for now,” he said hoarsely as he finally let her go. Hua Qiyue looked down in embarrassment and slowly sat down. The water covered her chest as she slowly washed herself.
Yun Shimo didn’t dare to look at her for fear that he would lose control and take her there and then. He turned away and said calmly, “There is a mysterious pearl within Princess Qianyang body that has an incredibly destructive power.”
Hua Qiyue froze in surprise.
A pearl in her body? This news was truly unexpected.
She had only heard about magic cores that could be found within the bodies of evil beasts and these cores looked like pearls but wouldn’t a human be considered a freak if she had a pearl within her body as well?
“I was afraid of being overheard in the carriage earlier. Although I had already made sure that no one outside the carriage would be able to overhear us, Tianci is still young, so it’d be better for him to not know so much,” Yun Shimo said then stepped forward and helped her wash her wet hair.
Her black hair floated leisurely in the water and looked like a tempting invitation.
Hua Qiyue paused for a moment before she said, “A pearl… this means that Princess Qianyang’s background isn’t as simple as it looks.”
“Indeed. It is possible that she might not be the daughter of the Emperor,” Yun Shimo’s voice grew cold as he continued, “I heard that Hongyi is the granddaughter of the sect leader and has always been pampered since young. She’s never been punished for the crimes that she has committed because the sect leader couldn’t bear to punish her. It is said that the sign of the phoenix appeared in the heavens when Hongyi was born, so after her birth, the Heaven Sect had rapidly ascended and rose to power.”
“This was because Hongyi was born with words on her back and those words were the incantation to a lethal skill. After the sect elder mastered this skill, the sect leader became invincible and thus, Heaven Sect’s fame also skyrocketed. This is why the sect leader has always doted on Hongyi. Even after her son and daughter-in-law passed away, she continued to dote on Hongyi lovingly.”
Hua Qiyue frowned and said, “Hongyi could have become a very good sect leader. It’s a pity that she’s been so pampered.”
Hongyi couldn’t discern right and wrong, and was stubborn and unreasonable, so how could someone like her become a good sect leader?
“I’m starting to suspect that Hongyi isn’t the sect leader’s granddaughter but rather, Princess Qianyang is her true granddaughter!” Yun Shimo said calmly. Hua Qiyue was completely astonished by his words.
Was he kidding? Could Hongyi truly not be the sect leader’s biological granddaughter? How could the sect leader fail to realize that her granddaughter had been swapped for another?
“Princess Qianyang might have been picked up but… she’s has a very special status within the Heaven Sect and even the Divine Eyes and Babel Sect are secretly keeping tabs on her,” Yun Shimo added.
Hua Qiyue paused before she said, “So you’re using this opportunity to figure out the truth behind the pearl in her body?”
Yun Shimo nodded and Hua Qiyue fell silent. Princess Qianyang had fallen for Yun Shimo and her body contained destructive energy, so Yun Shimo had probably agreed to escort the princess because he was worried that the princess would try to harm herself or Tianci, right?
She had to admit that although Yun Shimo was only one level stronger than her, he was way more perceptive and discerning compared to her.
Based on his explanation, Yun Shimo had been doing all these for her sake.
“What would you do if there’s really a pearl within her body? Are you going to dig it out of her?” Hua Qiyue asked with a frown. For some reason, the thought of this made her feel uncomfortable.
She didn’t really like Princess Qianyang but she didn’t wish to use this to control her.
“Princess Qianyang isn’t aware of the existence of this pearl… However, I can sense the effects of the pearl will be evident within the next two to three years,” Yun Shimo said with a frown. “Although I can’t mercilessly dig it out of her, I’ll still need to think of a defensive plan. Or… distract her by her turning her attention to someone else.”
Yun Shimo washed her hair and his eyes were extremely tender as he gazed at her but Hua Qiyue didn’t see all these. “Leave this with your husband. All you’ll have to do is to fight off the evil beasts,” he said.
Hua Qiyue was so annoyed that she could have vomited blood. How could Yun Shimo be so shameless as to call himself her husband?
“If she had fallen for you, are you going to let her have her way with you?” Hua Qiyue suddenly said with a laugh, “Princess Qianyang would make a rather good match with you. At least she looks much prettier than Hongyi.”
“Hua Qiyue, is this an invitation? Are you inviting me to let me have my way with you and to consummate our relationship?”
“Everyone else has already assumed that we’ve consummated our relationship some time ago, right?” Hua Qiyue said with a cold scoff. She was trying to shift away from this dangerous man when he suddenly appeared in front of her and his soft lips covered hers.
It was a soft kiss with a hint of the fragrance of lotuses. Hua Qiyue’s body softened at his touch and almost fell into the bath.
