Chapter 26: She was unwilling part 1
Although Long Xiao Yu didn’t say anything, she still got the feeling that she had been caught doing something wrong.
She sprinted straight for the Yu Han Palace without even daring to look Long Xiao Yu in the eye. But just as she was about to close the doors, a long and slender hand stopped her.
Mu Zi Ling couldn't budge the door, even with all her strength. She looked at the person who stopped her from closing the doors.What kind of speed did Long Xiao Yu have? It felt like he just teleported to the doorway while she had to run so hard that she was gasping for breath. Being compared to another, could really anger a person to death.
“Your highness, it's rather late now. This wife will be going to bed after taking a bath.” said Mu Zi Ling as she pretended to be calm.
Although she was still a bit scared inside, her logic told her that she mustn’t show any weaknesses.
Long Xiao Yu didn't seem like hear what Mu Zi Ling said. He didn’t say anything, but he didn't let go his hand either. His deep, dark pair of eyes stared straight at Mu Zi Ling. It was as if he was staring right past her.
Mu Zi Ling was so scared, that her heart beginning to feel nervous. She subconsciously started to shrink away, but right as she took a step back, Long Xiao Yu, stretched his long arm and pulled her back.
Bang. Mu Zi Ling’s head bumped into Long Xiao Yu’s chest. She didn't even get the chance to scream out in pain before Long Xiao Yu’s large and warm hands grabbed her thin waist. Then, he turned around and leaped into the sky.
In his embrace, Mu Zi Ling’s brain had already shut down when he grabbed onto her waist. She had no idea what on earth was going on. Her pair of clear eyes, stared blankly away. It looked as if a night pearl was shining into the night.
What did Long Xiao Yu just do? Where was she right now? The sound of a powerful heart beat passed through her ears, and a fragrant cold plum scent enveloped her nose, clearing her head.
She didn't care about anything else and did everything she could to try and struggle free. Furrowing her eyebrows, and she said to him, “Long Xiao Yu, what are you doing? Let go of me.”
“Are you sure?” Long Xiao Yu looked at the small woman in his embrace. A sense of humor flashed past his eyes. Instead of letting go of her, he gestured for her to look down.
Mu Zi Ling stopped struggling, and she looked down towards where Long Xiao Yu had pointed. She wouldn’t have guessed if she hadn’t looked, but the what she saw frightened her.
Oh god! They were flying in mid air. Was this the qinggong mentioned in legends? Even if she was still alive, if Long Xiao Yu let her go, she would still be seriously injured.
Long Xiao Yu stared at Mu Zi Ling’s changing expression. Then he suddenly loosened his hand a little.
“AHH don’t!” screamed Mu Zi Ling. She tightly grasped onto Long Xiao Ze’s strong waist subconsciously.
Wuuu~ She was about to cry. If she was going to die, she wanted to die without a missing arm or leg.
Mu Zi Ling didn't calm down for the rest of the journey. Although, they had already landed safely, she still clung tightly onto Long Xiao Yu until she heard a calming voice from above her head.
“Let go.” Long Xiao Yu’s heavy voice seemed to be oppressing something. After seeing Mu Zi Ling so scared for her life earlier, his heart lost a few bits of hatred. He something felt odd, but he chose to ignore it.
Only now did Mu Zi Ling notice that they had landed safely, yet she was still tightly clinging onto Long Xiao Yu.
Suddenly, she shot away and took a few steps back. She looked at her surroundings. Wasn't this the “Nan He Palace”? She had heard from Long Xiao Yu that the Nan He Palace was home to the was the 5th Prince, Long Xiao Nan. Long Xiao Nan usually had a good relationship with them.
She retrieved her worried expression and dazely asked Long Xiao Yu, “Your highness, why did you bring this wife here?”
“To see a patient.” Long Xiao Yu coldly spit out a few words. Ignoring Mu Zi Ling’s reaction he walked into the Nan Ge Palace.
To see a patient? Who did she have to cure? Didn’t the Royal Palace have imperial doctors? They also had Le Tian, who had high medical skills.
Why did Long Xiao Yu look for her? In addition she hadn't agreed to see the patient. Seeing that Long Xiao Yu had already left, she stopped thinking about it, and followed Long Xiao Yu in.
Inside, the palace was a huge mess. Everything that could be broken had been shattered. There were no eunuchs or palace maids to be seen. Mu Zi Ling was very confused. What exactly happened? Why did the palace turn into this?
Gui Ying and Gui Mei heard some noise, so they walked out from behind the screen, “Greetings to your highness and Princess.”
“How is he?” asked Long Xiao Yu without any expression on his face.
“The Fifth Prince has taken a Soul Calming Pill so he is currently sleeping.” answered Gui Mei respectfully.
Long Xiao Nan was the one that was ill? Why didn't Long Xiao Ze say anything about Long Xiao Nan having an illness? What type of illness could even make him go crazy like this? Without waiting for Long Xiao Yu to say anything, she walked in by herself.
On the bed was a handsome male who looked very pathetic. It seemed as if he had went through a great battle between life and death.
Mu Zi Ling didn’t say anything else, before starting the Stellar System to examine him. There was no problem with his body. Could it be his brain? She proceeded onto inspecting Long Xiao Nan's head.
Mu Zi Ling furrowed her brows. As expected, there was a tumor on Long Xiao Nan’s brain. The tumor wasn’t small either. No wonder he was acting crazy. It was probably because he was in so much pain.
“Your highness, there is a foreign matter growing in Fifth Prince’s head, which is causing headaches. He went crazy because he couldn’t handle the pain.” said Mu Zi Ling simply
She knew that she couldn’t go into too much detail. If people didn't know better, they would think that her eyes could see through anything. She was only looking around randomly, yet was able to find out what size and shape the tumor was in Long Xiao Nan’s head.
“Can it be cured?” Long Xiao Yu’s mind was racing. Mu Zi Ling and Le Tian had both said about the same thing. However, those charlatans in the Palace couldn't even determine what was causing his headaches no matter how hard they tried.
“Why didn’t his highness invite Le...?” Long Xiao Nan was no ordinary person. If Le Tian could cure this, then she didn’t want to get too involved into the deep ocean of the Royal Palace. If there really was any mishaps, she would lose her head.
She wasn’t even able to finish saying what she was going to say when she was coldly cut off by Long Xiao Yu.
