1403 You’ll Have To Remarry

Bai He squeezed her hand and whispered, “All I did was clear up the misunderstanding for you. The General’s not an unreasonable person—once he realized that he’d misunderstood you, he turned back right away.” She sighed softly in relief.

The General had been dreadfully terrifying just now.

Hearing this, Lin Qingyuan paused, then pursed her lips and said nothing.

Long Xuan’s horse was tied not far away. After tossing Chen Xuping onto the horse, he turned, strode back to Lin Qingyuan, and fixed her a long and hard look.

Startled, Lin Qingyuan took a step back at the sight of his grim expression. “Why are you staring at me like that?”

Long Xuan glanced at her, his dark eyes lowered. All of a sudden, he turned around, crouched down in front of her, and said in a low, commanding voice, “Get on!”

“Huh?” Lin Qingyuan stared at his broad back in surprise, unable to process what he had just said.

“Hurry up!” Long Xuan said impatiently.

Lin Qingyuan gulped as she remembered how fierce he had been just now. Would he throw her off his back halfway?

She lingered in place hesitantly.

“It’s all right—Bai He can help me. Just go ahead and take Chen Xuping to the city first.”

Long Xuan shot her a look over his shoulder. “If you don’t get on right now, I’m going to kill Chen Xuping.”

Lin Qingyuan’s eyes widened as she stared at him in disbelief. “Are you serious?”

Long Xuan’s lips quirked. “Are you getting on or not?”

Lin Qingyuan had no choice but to climb onto his back.

When he straightened up, she hurriedly wrapped her arms tightly around his neck. “Don’t you dare throw me off halfway.”

Long Xuan paused, then turned his head and gave her an offended look. Did she refuse to let him carry her because she was worried about that?

Was he that unreliable in her eyes?

He pursed his lips in displeasure.

“Did you hear me?” When he did not reply, Lin Qingyuan tightened her hold on his neck.

Caught off guard, Long Xuan sputtered and gasped for breath.

When he regained his composure, he snapped, “If you tighten your arms any further, you’ll have to remarry.”

Lin Qingyuan immediately loosened her hold. “Well, it’s your fault for being so obnoxious. All I need is a promise from you.”

Stifling the urge to throw her off his back, Long Xuan closed his eyes and forced the words out through his teeth. “I won’t.”

Lin Qingyuan heaved a sigh of relief, then yawned and lay down against his back. “Let’s go, then.”

Sensing her movement, Long Xuan turned his head and gave her a sidelong glance. Noticing the exhaustion on her face, he eventually held himself back from saying anything else.

After walking to his horse and tossing the reins to Bai He, he left it alone.

Chen Xuping had appeared out of the blue and even helped Lin Qingyuan suck out the snake venom. There was no way it was a coincidence.

It was certainly intentional.

He was already merciful enough for not tearing a man who coveted his wife to pieces, not to mention looking after said man.

He had only managed to keep himself from doing away with the already injured Chen Xuping because of his excellent self-control.

When they entered the city, it was already dark. If they had arrived any later, the gates would have been closed.

Long Xuan sent Lin Qingyuan and Chen Xuping to be treated at a medical hall.

The venom in Lin Qingyuan’s ankle had already been sucked clean. Although her wound looked rather ghastly as she had exerted too much force just now and opened the wound further, there was not much cause for concern.

After the physician applied medicine to her ankle and bandaged it, she was good to go.

Chen Xuping’s condition, on the other hand, was slightly more serious.

He had accidentally ingested some venom while helping Lin Qingyuan suck it out. Moreover, Long Xuan’s palm strike had thrown the state of his vital energy and blood into disarray, which eventually made him pass out.
