1319 The Touch Was Soft As A Newborn Baby’s

Long Xuan felt his head aching when he heard those words.

He wondered what his Royal Uncle was thinking when he suggested bestowing Lin Qingyuan’s hand to him.

Long Xuan had never thought about marriage and always believed that having a wife and children would just add to his troubles.

He was living a good life now and he did not want anything to change nor did he want a woman involved in his future. It would be quite troublesome.

Almost three days have passed since the half-month deadline was given. If he did not find a woman of his liking soon, his Royal Uncle would bestow marriage between him and Lin Qingyuan.

The thought of Lin Qingyuan made him even more frustrated.

She was a woman who loved causing trouble.

“What are you worrying about?” Yan Ruyu could tell from his face that something was bothering him and she could not help asking the question.

They had known each other for a long time and she had never seen anything or anyone giving him such a headache.

However, he looked incredibly distressed right now.

Even though they were friends, Long Xuan was not someone who liked sharing his troubles with others.

Moreover, this was a topic that was not suitable to be discussed with Yan Ruyu.

“It’s nothing. It’s just some small matter back home.” He shook his head.

Yan Ruyu did not press the question when she saw he was unwilling to say more.

When the pleasure boat reached the shore, Yan Ruyu did not immediately make an appearance. Her admirers waiting by the shore went up to the boat one by one, asking if Yan Ruyu was alright.

Everyone had seen the commotion on the river and suspected that something had happened to Yan Ruyu.

“Thank you for all your concern. I’m fine.” Yan Ruyu greeted the crowd while standing on the deck.

Even though her face was covered and only her eyes were visible, the crowd became greatly excited the moment she appeared.

Lin Qingyuan was amazed.

She had never seen Yan Ruyu’s face. Did she really look like a fairy? Otherwise, how was she able to make so many people chase after her this way?

Lin Qingyuan had never seen anyone who could compare to the beauty of Weiwei and the Grand Duchess.

Now, however, it appeared that Yan Ruyu must be quite gorgeous too.

Before she left, Lin Qingyuan had taken the opportunity to touch Yan Ruyu’s hand. The touch was as soft as a newborn baby’s and she could not get the sensation out of her head. She said airily, “Miss Ruyu, I’ll make sure to show you some support at Peony Pavilion when I visit.”

Yan Ruyu was taken aback before quickly smiling as she said, “Peony Pavilion has only ever taken in male customers. It wouldn’t be appropriate for Miss Lin to visit, would it?”

“That won’t be a problem. I’ll just wear a disguise.” Lin Qingyuan had never visited a brothel in her life and could not help looking forward to it.

Yan Ruyu gave a small laugh. She raised an eyebrow and said, “A proper woman would never step foot in a place like Peony Pavilion.”

“Well, I’m not a proper woman.” Lin Qingyuan dropped an astonishing statement.

Yan Ruyu was caught off guard by that but could not help bursting into laughter. She lifted a hand to pinch Lin Qingyuan’s cheek. “You’re so adorable, Miss Lin.”

Lin Qingyuan blushed and took the opportunity to squeeze Yan Ruyu’s hand. “It’s settled then. I’ll visit you someday.”

When Long Xuan walked past them, he saw Lin Qingyuan grabbing Yan Ruyu’s hand as though she was unwilling to ever release it. He arched an eyebrow.

He wondered if the real reason this woman was unwilling to marry was that she was actually a lesbian.

At this thought, he suddenly felt uncomfortable.

When they got off the boat, Lin Qingyuan hurried after Long Xuan before he left and thanked him sincerely.

“General Long, I thank you for the help you gave me. I’ll treat you to a meal one day…”

“There’s no need for that. There was very little effort on my part. You don’t have to take it to heart, Miss Lin. I have something to attend to, so I’ll take my leave first.” Before she could finish her words, Long Xuan cut her off and quickly left with his subordinate.
