Chapter 207: Huangfu Qingjue’s Consolation
The fifth princess saw that the lifeless Ling Chuxi had also started to frown. How could she make her master happy again? This was an extremely distressing question.
Ling Chuxi muddled through the whole day of classes. When she returned to her residence and ate the delicacies Fu Chengyu specially ordered his people to make for her, she also did not have much of a reaction. Fu Chengyu and Ling Yichen exchanged glances and saw the worry in each other’s eyes. If Ling Chuxi continued on like this, the outcome be would not be good…
At night, clear moonlight shone upon the thick layers of snow, reflecting a soft light. Ling Chuxi stood by the windowsill in a stupor, staring at the courtyard in hopes that Little White would appear before her the very next moment. However, all this was merely in her imagination.
The cold wind blew heartlessly against Ling Chuxi’s face and into her house. Ling Chuxi’s face was so frozen that her cheeks had turned red, but she still kept looking straight ahead as though in a trance, as if she could not feel a thing.
Suddenly, a light sigh was heard, and a pair of fair, slender hands reached over to Ling Chuxi to put a silver-white fur scarf around her neck. “Little thing, you are really…”
“Huangfu… Qingjue?” Ling Chuxi turned her head slightly and saw that Huangfu Qingjue had appeared beside her without her knowing. Huangfu Qingjue’s handsome face wore a helpless smile as his eyes were filled with heartache.
“Why are you not loving yourself even a little bit?” said Huangfu Qingjue as he fastened the silver-white fur scarf ever so slightly tighter around Ling Chuxi’s neck to enable her to feel a little warmer.
“Little White has gone missing…” said Ling Chuxi as she lightly bit her bottom lip in an effort to suppress the tears that were threatening to gush out of her. Nobody could have imagined that Little White’s departure would have left such a big impact on her. And what a destructive and despairing impact it was.
“Is it not just a fox?” said Huangfu Qingjue as he stretched out his arm to gently pat Ling Chuxi’s head.
However, when Ling Chuxi heard him saying this, her face changed and she suddenly fiercely slapped his hand away as she said angrily, “You, shut up! What do you know?! To me, Little White is more important than anything else! Little White is not simply just a fox to me! Nobody can replace it! No one!”
Huangfu Qingjue was stunned. He felt a slight sting on the back of his hand and saw Ling Chuxi’s angry face, yet he smiled and the smile in his eyes became more obvious as he gently said, “Chuxi, I apologize. I should not have said something like that. Little White is indeed the smartest and most one of a kind fox there is out there. Don’t be sad. It will definitely return to your side again. Most definitely.”
Ling Chuxi looked at Huangfu Qingjue’s clear, purple eyes and heard the words he said with his deep voice and at that moment, her heart actually slowly calmed down.
“Chuxi, believe me. Little White will definitely return. If Little White returns and sees that you are not loving yourself like this, it will definitely be upset,” said Huangfu Qingjue gently as he stretched out his hand to adjust the silver-white fur scarf around Ling Chuxi’s neck. “Before Little White returns, use this temporarily to keep your neck warm.”
Ling Chuxi also stretched out her hand to gently caress the silver-white fur scarf Huangfu Qingjue had wrapped around her. It was very smooth and very warm. It felt very soft to the touch too.
“Will Little White really return?” asked Ling Chuxi as she raised her head to meet Huangfu Qingjue’s gaze hopefully. Ling Chuxi also did not know why, but at this moment, she believed in his words.
“Of course. Little White is incomparable and one of a kind. Little White will be just fine. There is definitely a reason behind its disappearance right now, but when it settles the matters it needs to attend to, it will return to your side,” said Huangfu Qingjue softly, consoling Ling Chuxi with his words.
