Chapter 445: Light In Her Eyes
Nun Jingxin had moved a small stool in front of the temple hall and was reading a book. On the coffee table in front of her was boiling tea. When she saw the purple clay teapot emitting smoke, she seemed to smell the fresh fragrance of tea.
The afternoon sun was kind of big, but when it shone on her, it seemed to soften a little. Even the north wind felt less cold and a little warmer.
The man was looking at Nun Jingxin with gentle eyes and a smile on his face. He was affectionate and gentle, but his eyes were sparkling.
Ling Sheng squatted beside him quietly, holding her chin and maintaining the same posture as him as she stared at the quiet beauty not far away.
She did not know if it was because the man was so focused, but he did not seem to notice her presence. He was only looking at his lover.
After some time, the man seemed to finally discover her. He looked sideways at her. “When did you arrive?”
She was close, so he could vaguely see the young lady’s appearance and figure. She was Sixth Brother’s daughter, the young lady Ah Yan liked.
Fifth Brother had said that he had not planned to come to the temple today, but he had eventually come.
Ling Sheng suddenly heard the man’s voice. It was hoarse but pleasant to the ears. The rhythm made her feel happy. His question was very natural, as though he knew her. She smiled and whispered, “Uncle, you like Nun Jingxin.”
Yan Yuanfei smiled. “How did you know?”
Ling Sheng said, “When you look at her, your eyes glow.”
Yan Yuanfei’s smile deepened. Was that so? However, he could not see her face clearly. He could only picture her eyes in his heart over and over again. He could only hide there and take a look at her in secret.
“Why don’t you go over to find her?” Ling Sheng was a curious child. She found it strange. What had happened to her today? She felt familiarity and affection just because she had seen a certain person. “Uncle, did you make her sad? Is she ignoring you?”
“Yes.” Yan Yuanfei nodded.
“Then why don’t you explain it to her? You’ll never be able to resolve this misunderstanding otherwise,” Ling Sheng said seriously.
She was smiling very gently, but her heart ached when she looked at him. She did not know if she was crazy, but this was the first time she had seen him!
Perhaps it was because of his dressing style and his current appearance that he looked like the Third Master? Was that why she had such a magical feeling?
“You’re still young. Some things are not that simple.” Yan Yuanfei looked at the woman not far away with deep eyes.
The tea was ready. He could smell the fragrance of the tea from afar. Was it her favorite black tea? Or was it his favorite Longjing tea?
“I’m not young at all.” Ling Sheng looked at the man’s legs and the mask on his face before she said seriously, “If you choose to give up on her because of your health, I’ll look down on you.”
Yan Yuanfei smiled. His low laughter seemed to spread from his chest.
Afraid of being discovered, she lowered her voice and asked, “Why do you think that way?”
There were many reasons. He only wanted her to live well and happily. He had not expected her to end up like this because of him.
“If that’s really the case, I definitely wouldn’t forgive you if I were Nun Jingxin.” Ling Sheng frowned before saying in disdain, “Why are all men so self-righteous? You think your arrangement is the best for her? Have you asked her what she thinks?”
