Chapter 135 – The words that she wanted to say turned into a tangled mess (2)
Yuan Jue somewhat self-mockingly thought that maybe he was born as a filthy, horrifying monster at birth and that’s why he was changing so quickly in that direction.
And yet, he was faintly aware that if he was using fiend energy to advance, then he had to stop at level 5 even with Qiuqiu’s soothing presence. If he progressed past that point, he would inevitably lose the part that belonged to his demon self. Once that happened, he might become a monster that couldn’t control his appetite and bloodthirst.
There was a big gap between him and gray wolf Tianluo to begin with. If he became a fiend, won’t his odds of success be even less?
As Yuan Jue mended his broken meridians, he was also very nervous and worried about something else. He had wickedly taken advantage of when Qiuqiu wasn’t feeling well to sleep under the same blanket as her. How would she react when she woke up?
He had already been very worried about this, and he felt even worse when she immediately distanced herself and aggrievedly cried upon waking up.
As he saw the tears in Ruan Qiuqiu’s eyes with his demon consciousness, every strand of his fur seemed to droop down in sorrow.
It was rare for the human and the wolf to be on the same wavelength; they both felt bitter and pained.
Ruan Qiuqiu looked at him for a while. Her strength was gradually recovering, and once she had enough energy, she finally pulled the tail that was wrapped around her waist.
“… So hard.” Lying on the tail that was wedged between her and the stone bed was uncomfortable. Due to not feeling well, when Ruan Qiuqiu spoke, her voice was soft like something fluttering in the breeze. She tried to remove that big tail that wouldn’t let go of her waist with her slightly cold hands.
Thinking that his wife was disgusted with him, Yuan Jue was almost about to die from feeling so wronged. Although he would normally be happy to hear her praising him for having a hard tail, he wasn’t happy at all right now.
This time, that peculiar feeling that he had when she touched his tail was less than usual. He deliberately bullied her by refusing to move his tail.
After trying to remove the tail for a long time without success, Ruan Qiuqiu suspected that Yuan Jue was awake. She took a deep breath and simply laid down, pressing on his tail. She raised her hand and stroked the fur. In a fake calm tone, she called out, “Mr. Yuan? Are you awake?”
When Yuan Jue heard how her address for him had changed, his tail fur puffed up a bit. His chest tightened. He felt as if his heart had been turned into a pincushion.
Sure enough, she was angry.
He didn’t dare to open his tightly closed eyes. His tail was also very well-behaved and didn’t even twitch.
Ruan Qiuqiu finally removed the tail and rubbed her waist that was feeling uncomfortable due to being pressed painfully by the tail. Her lips slowly curved up, but her cheeks heated up.
Sure enough, this wolf was awake. Once she realized that, she felt even shyer.
You know, this whole thing started because she was feeling uncomfortable and deliberately wouldn’t let go of that source of heat. His body was delicate and weak right now. Besides, it was just sleeping under the same blanket, that’s all.
Anyways, she had come into contact with his arms before when she was cleaning him up. She was also wearing thick clothing. It was no big deal…
Ruan Qiuqiu did her best to comfort herself, but her face was so red it looked like it was about to explode.
She lightly breathed in and turned her head away. She didn’t dare to look at his expression. Grasping the bed sheet beneath her, she opened her mouth to speak, “Umm… Yuan…”
“Outside, demon.” A low voice that was full of magnetism entered her ear along with a cool breeze. It interrupted her and her train of thought.
She instinctively turned her head.
Yuan Jue slowly opened his long and narrow eyes. His beautiful gray-blue eyes were inclined towards her. The corners of his eyes were slightly red, and two beautiful half-circles of light formed from the inconspicuous droplets on his eyelashes.
She clearly knew that he couldn’t see her, but when those eyes slanted in her direction, Ruan Qiuqiu still had the misconception that he was looking at her.
The words that she wanted to say turned into a tangled mess.
What was up with this wolf? Based on her understanding of him, he should be pretending to be asleep.
Perhaps, her brain wasn’t working as well because she was sick. Ruan Qiuqiu felt as if her thinking was unusually sluggish to respond.
With her eyes half-opened, she looked at Yuan Jue’s beautiful long and narrow eyes, at a loss.
