Chapter 111 – His little wife’s acting skills seemed inferior to his (2)
The surrounding gradually quieted.
Ruan Qiuqiu, who was lying on the snow and pretending that she had been choked to death by an invisible fiend, was very serene.
She was silently counting. After two minutes had passed, she slowly opened her eyes. She was shivering as she braced her hands against the snow to sit up.
Her current state was somewhat terrible. She had been too vigorous in her acting, and the bite wounds on her legs had torn open. Her oozing blood mixed with plant residue looked gross.
Ruan Qiuqiu touched her neck. She regretted using too much force in choking herself earlier to make a more convincing strangulating sound.
Still, she had finally gotten rid of the difficult to deal with male lead. Ruan Qiuqiu sighed in relief. As she looked in the direction that Lu Ziran had run off towards, she couldn’t resist laughing.
There was no such thing as an invisible fiend. It was surprising that Lu Ziran would fall for that.
In the novel, Lu Ziran had been the quintessential male lead that exude warmth and love to multiple women. He was a heaven-defying lion demon that thought the female supporting characters all needed his help, and he was incapable of refusing to come to their aid.
However, the Lu Ziran in her memory hadn’t been so infallible. She didn’t know why he had become such a greasy character. She hoped that he believed that she had died and won’t come here to bother her anymore.
She had gotten more goosebumps just from thinking about Lu Ziran for a few more seconds.
She wanted to go stroke Mr. Gray Wolf’s furry tail to heal her damaged spirit. While rubbing her painful knee, she thought about something related to Mr. Gray Wolf. Her expression was a bit absent-minded.
It had been so loud out here, but Mr. Gray Wolf hadn’t woken up. It couldn’t be that his condition had gotten worse again, right?
Ruan Qiuqiu wanted to quickly go back to check his condition. She tried to push herself to a standing position with her hands, but before she was able to stand up, her surroundings had darkened. It was as if something tall had blocked off the light.
Ruan Qiuqiu wanted to look up, but a cold gale suddenly swept over her.
The snow, which hadn’t fallen all day, suddenly poured down onto her face. The falling snow moved and followed along when she turned her vision, blocking her line of sight. The cold winter wind swept along too.
“… Is it snowing?” She murmured in discontent. Ruan Qiuqiu was forced to raise her arm to block the snow from her eyes.
“En, it’s snowing.” A hoarse voice that was both familiar and unfamiliar to her suddenly sounded by her ears. The final syllable of that reply was tangled up with downcast and unclear complicated emotions. It was accompanied by a hot and moist breath of air that blew across the auricle of her ear.
“Mr. Gray Wolf?” Ruan Qiuqiu instinctively called out her nickname for him and opened her eyes in surprise.
How could she be hearing Mr. Gray Wolf’s voice? Shouldn’t he still be lying in bed and inside the cave?
Ruan Qiuqiu moved her arm away and turned to look, but before she could turn her around, that hoarse voice sounded again and said that familiar word, “Sleep.”
Ruan Qiuqiu: “…”
That low voice was accompanied with a gentle demon power. A sense of exhaustion gushed up. The eyes that Ruan Qiuqiu had forced herself to open slowly closed. She didn’t even time to ponder why Mr. Gray Wolf was out here before she unwillingly fell into the darkness.
Translator Ramblings: On one hand, I find it it frustrating that Yuan Jue put Ruan Qiuqiu to sleep again. It feels like he’s running away from talking to her, making it impossible for their relationship to progress. On the other hand, from Yuan Jue’s perspective, he wants her to be asleep so he has the space to calm down. I assume he doesn’t want to take the chance of her freaking out if she sees his horrifying appearance, which will further destabilize his already unstable mood.
