Title: ChongFei Manual
Chapter: 170.5 out of 171
He had just kissed her eyelids. It felt itchy, so she tried to move backwards. She carefully thought the question over. She really didn’t have anything to give him in return.
Li Song asked, “En?”
Wei Luo said, “I’ll go to Qian Temple to burn incense for you and pray to the bodhisattva to bless you with longevity.”
Li Song cracked his lips into a smile. He felt delight bubbling upwards from the bottom of his heart. In the previous lifetime, Wei Luo would rather die than say such cute words. He used one hand to grasp her chin and looked at her with a smile. “I don’t need those unnecessarily superstitions. Wei Luo, you know what I want.”
Wei Luo swiftly looked away. “I don’t know.”
Li Song lowered his head to kiss her lips. “What about now?”
Wei Luo covered her lips, fiercely glared at him, and angrily rebuked, “Pervert!” She finally said what she had been wanting to say.
Li Song didn’t object to this. He had wanted to kiss her for a long time. He didn’t just want to kiss her. There were many other things that he wanted to do. Li Song stopped leaning over her body, sat down by her side, and adjusted the bottom part of his robe. “You won’t be able to do anything if you leave here. Consider my condition. I’ll do my best to help you if you agree.”
Wei Luo pursed her lips. Her lips tasted entirely of him. She felt slightly uneasy. “I don’t want to marry you.”
Li Song’s expression sank and he didn’t say another word.
After the time it would take to burn a stick of incense, Li Song left the room. He specially ordered Lu Shi to watch over Wei Luo and to not allow her to the leave the house.
He had been waiting for information during the past period. The people he ordered to investigate Du-shi finally found useful information. Du-shi had indeed ordered people to look for Wei Luo. As soon as those people found Wei Luo, Du-shi definitely wouldn’t let Wei Luo off. Not only that, Li Song had found out that Wei Luo hadn’t been kidnapped ten years ago. Instead, Du-shi had contacted two slavers and sold Wei Luo to them of her own accord. Later on, Wei Luo was able to escape from those slavers.
As it turned out, this world was extremely different from the world that he was familiar with. No wonder, so many things were different in this world.
Li Song said to Lu Shi, “Capture those two servant girls. They’ll be useful for later.”
The two servant girls’ names were Jin Ci and Jin Ge. They had served Wei Luo back then. They were also witnesses to Du-shi selling Wei Luo off to those slavers.
Lu Shi nodded and verbally acknowledged the order.
Li Song temporarily returned to Prince Ru Yang’s residence. He had to carefully consider Li Xiang and Wei Chang Hong’s engagement. If Wei Luo was reunited with her family, then she would become Duke Ying’s family’s Fifth Miss. In the noble families, sister-in-laws and brother-in-laws weren’t allowed to marry each other. If Li Xiang married into Duke Ying’s family, then he and Wei Luo would never be able marry.
However, Li Song didn’t expect that after he left the house, Wei Luo would have already left by the next time he returned to this house again.
The servant girl that had been serving Wei Luo was kneeling on the ground as she said, “Young Master, please forgive me. This servant was negligent. Miss Wei escaped in the middle of the night when this servant was sleeping…”
There wasn’t any expression on Li Song’s face. He was silent for a long time before telling the servant girls to withdraw from the room. He went into the inner room and lied down on the bed.
Lying down on Wei Luo’s arhat bed, he thought about everything that had happened recently. The past period had felt like a dream. It had felt too unreal. Now that Wei Luo left, he actually felt a sense of realism. This hateful girl. No matter which world they were in, she wouldn’t let him have his way, much less give him a chance.
He had found her before Zhao Jie in this lifetime. He hadn’t pushed Wei Chang Hong into the lake. Li Xiang hadn’t shot him with an arrow. Why was she still unwilling to stay with him?
Li Song thought about this until he got a headache. He gradually fell asleep on the arhat bed. When he opened his eyes again, it was the next morning.
He stayed lying on the bed for a while before he was fully conscious. Then, he washed his face and changed his clothes. Afterwards, he sent people to Duke Ying’s residence to check the situation. After receiving the news that Wei Luo hadn’t returned to Duke Ying’s residence, his mood was slightly complicated. He didn’t know if he was feeling glad or feeling worried. She was all alone and without any money. Where could she go?
What if she met with danger while she was outside?
Thinking of this, Li Song’s expression immediately sunk. He had almost forgotten that Du-shi’s people were also looking for Wei Luo and they might even kill her. Li Song immediately walked out of the room and ordered Lu Shi, “Send all of the guards to immediately start looking for Wei Luo. They have to thoroughly search the capital. Hurry, if you can’t find her, then don’t come back!” His expression was severe and anxious. This was the first time that he felt worried over another person.
Lu Shi opened and closed his mouth. He wanted to ask why. But in the end, he didn’t ask any question and left after saying, “Understood.”
The guards searched for Wei Luo for an entire day. In order to not alarm the ordinary citizens, they could only secretly search and the result wasn’t good. By dusk, they still didn’t have any news of Wei Luo’s location. Li Song’s expression became increasingly ugly.
When they came back to report, he kicked one of the guard’s stomach and yelled, “Useless!”
Li Song flung his sleeves and strode out of the house. He decided that he would personally search for her.
He searched all of the alleys near Duke Ying’s residence, but he didn’t find any traces of her. The sky would soon turn dark completely and he still didn’t know about Wei Luo’s current situation. Li Song tightened his jaw and his fists were clenched so tightly that a cracking sound could be heard. He ordered, “Continue searching.”
The guards dispersed as he stood in the dark depths of the alley without moving.
A short while later, a guard hurriedly came back and said, “Young Master, we found her!”
Li Song suddenly raised his head. His visibly bloodshot pitch-black eyes were extremely frightening.
