Soul Land 3: Legend Of The Jade Emperor Book 2 Chapter 61
A/N: First time writing this type of scene that is this long, so sorry if it's bad. On an off note, do you guys like tragic endings? Just for the sake of asking of course.
"I'm bored. Do you want to go out?"
"Sure. Just let me go get a change of clothing."
Those words were the spark that led to Huang Yu and Gu Yue leaving their shared dormitory to go out.
As the two of them left the dormitory, they attracted the attention of a few unsavoury people. One group was a group consisting of Nox's bishops. The other group was a bunch of busybodies in the form of Xie Xie, Xu Lizhi, Xu Xiaoyan and Ye Xinglan. Tang Wulin wasn't here since he was at the Tang Sect at the moment.
When Xie Xie and the others saw Huang Yu and Gu Yue going out together, with them all being gossipy kids they wanted to sneak a peek at what the two of them were doing. It was painfully obvious to them that there was a certain tension between the duo.
Not only that, they definitely noticed that Tang Wulin was interested in Gu Yue. Unfortunately, he was being rejected very harshly each and every time Huang Yu appeared. Xie Xie hoped that they could get some pointers from how Huang Yu acted so that Tang Wulin would stand a better chance.
They trailed behind Huang Yu and Gu Yue, trying to make themselves not known. Luckily for them, their auras were pretty muddled amongst the crowd they were in, so Huang Yu and Gu Yue didn't spot them. The fact that the two of them weren't even putting their guards up played an immense part as well though.
On the other hand, Nox's ragtag group of fanatical bishops were extremely well hidden. They trailed behind the two in an attempt to see what type of girl their king had liked. If she wasn't good enough then she would be made good enough by them.
Unknown to everyone, Beast God Di Tian and Bi Ji were far away keeping their eyes on Huang Yu and Gu Yue as well. The two of them were curious what type of relationship was between their king and the human with the Sage's Body.
Huang Yu and Gu Yue soon entered a random ice-cream shop. The moment they did, Xie Xie and his group quickly camped somewhere nearby so that they could peek through the glass window of the shop. They used spirit power to be able to listen in on the conversation.
The three bishops of Nox had their own way of peeking in. They made a few calls before they got access to the security cameras inside the ice-cream shop. Unlike Xie Xie's group though, they didn't use spirit power to listen in to the conversation since that would be a crime worthy of death for them.
Di Tian and Bi JI tsked when their view was obscured by the walls of the ice-cream shop. Hence, they moved themselves to find an angle that allowed them to look through the windows.
Inside the ice-cream shop, Huang Yu and Gu Yue were lining up to buy some ice-cream.
"Gu Yue, what flavour do you want? I'll treat today."
Gu Yue put a finger to her chin, pondering for a moment before answering. "I guess I'll have a strawberry one."
Huang Yu nodded his head hearing that. Soon, it came to their turn to buy the ice-cream. Huang Yu bought a chocolate one and a strawberry one then gave the one Gu Yue wanted to her before they went and got a seat.
The two sat next to each other at their table. As they sat down, they began talking while they ate. However, for some reason, Gu Yue was particularly brave and bold in the topics she chose to talk about today.
"Huang Yu, what type of girls do you like?"
Hearing those words, Huang Yu nearly spat out the ice-cream he just put into his mouth. Gu Yue had actually stunned him for the first time in a while, and she noticed it as well, proven by the c.o.c.ky smile that was beginning to appear on her lips.
In order to fight back against her, Huang Yu shifted into his shameless mode. He gazed very obviously towards Gu Yue's chest area before saying, "I like them moderately sized. Too big isn't nice."
Noticing Huang Yu's gaze, Gu Yue's face blushed scarlet. She took a quick glance at her own chest before secretly rejoicing at her own size. She was quite moderately endowed if she did say so herself.
Nonetheless, Gu Yue didn't back down. It had been quite a while since she had been able to make Huang Yu fl.u.s.tered and she genuinely wanted to know what Huang Yu's other preferences as well.
"Umm, anything else then?" Gu Yue squeaked out with a soft voice.
Huang Yu closed his eyes for a moment before deciding what to say next. "I suppose the type of girl I like would be a girl like you then Gu Yue."
The moment those words were spoken, Gu Yue and the people eavesdropping outside all froze.
With a flabbergasted expression, Xie Xie suddenly said to Xu Lizhi and the others, "Huang Yu's too smooth isn't he? How is Captain going to fight against that?"
The others didn't reply as they were too stunned by what they heard. Ye Xinglan in particular felt a strange feeling in her chest before she pushed it aside.
Meanwhile, if it was possible, Gu Yue's face got even redder. Her thoughts began barraging through her head at a thousand thoughts a minute.
'Doesthismeanhelikesmethatwayaswell? Isthisaconfessionfromhim? WhatamIsupposedtosaynexttoananswerlikethat???"
Gu Yue was cut off from her jumbled thoughts as Huang Yu let out a chuckle. Then, he put a tissue before wiping the side of Gu Yue's lips.
"You got some ice-cream over there."
Outside the store, Di Tian and Bi Ji were both thinking the same thing. 'That boy is taking advantage of our king isn't he??!!!"
At this point, Gu Yue used all her mental power to forcefully calm herself down. After a deep breath, she was a lot calmer than she was previously. There was still a blush on her face though.
"T, thank you." she mumbled out.
Huang Yu laughed softly before patting Gu Yue on the head. She was so cute to tease at times like this.
"You want to leave now? We're both done with our ice-creams anyways right?"
As the two of them left the ice-cream shop, Gu Yue had finally managed to fully calm herself down. Walking behind Huang Yu, she took a look at his broad back before taking another deep breath.
"Ahh, I twisted my ankle!" she shouted as she fell down.
Huang Yu instantly turned around before rushing over to her. "Hey, are you okay?"
"I don't think I can walk anymore for today." Gu Yue blurted out quickly. As soon as she did so, she cursed herself for not making this realistic enough.
Huang Yu took a look at both her ankles and quickly realised that Gu Yue wasn't injured at all. However, he didn't say anything about it, playing along with Gu Yue's act.
"In that case, do you want me to bring you to the infirmary?" he asked.
At those words, Gu Yue's eyes widened slightly before they quickly reverted back to normal. "N, no, it's fine. I'll just need a while to recover."
"But I thought you said that you couldn't walk for the rest of the day? It must be hurting very badly. You have to get a check up!"
"It's really fine. Now that I feel it again, it's not that serious. I think that I can treat it with some spirit energy."
As Gu Yue said that, she bit her lip before a slightly downcasted expression appeared on her face. Seeing her sad look, Huang Yu couldn't help but feel a stab towards his heart. He let out a sigh before he turned around and squatted down in front of her.
"In that case, let me carry you then. You shouldn't put too much pressure on the injury while you heal it. I guess I'll bring you to look around while you heal yourself okay?"
When Huang Yu did so, a confused look appeared on Gu Yue's face before it quickly shifted into one of happiness.
"Okay!" Gu Yue said enthusiastically as she put her hands around Huang Yu's neck and climbed on his back.
The two of them walked in the plaza they were in like this. Throughout the walk, the two of them drew the attention of many other people.
"You look at that kid carrying his girlfriend? Why can't you do that for me?"
"Wife, it's just that I'm not strong enough. You're a bit too heav"
Hearing similar things throughout their walk, Gu Yue smirked before she pulled herself closer to Huang Yu, causing her assets to rub against his back.
Huang Yu didn't show any outward reaction. However, he was slowly dying from the temptation on the inside.
'This girl is a minx! If she was older I would definitely push her down." he grieved inwardly.
At the side, Xie Xie and the others were even more shocked than they were previously when they saw Gu Yue's actions. This had shown a completely different side of the Gu Yue who was normally cold and taciturn to them.
'Looking at them, Captain really doesn't stand a chance anymore.' Xie Xie thought sadly for Tang Wulin.
Di Tian and Bi Ji were both incredibly shocked as well seeing their king like this. How could their proud and majestic king act like a little schoolgirl in love to that boy? Her actions had completely destroyed their common sense.
Di Tian turned around with a strange expression on his face, not willing to look at this scene anymore.
"Nope nope nope. This is all just a nightmare. I'll wake up any moment now and it'll all be over. Yeah, it'll all be over. Everything will go back to normal." Di Tian whispered quietly to himself.
Hearing this, Bi Ji let out a sweatdrop before she turned to look at him. "Di Tian, calm down."
"Nope nope nope. This is all"
Bi Ji let out a sigh. When could you ever see the proud Beast God Di Tian act like this.
The three bishops of Nox who saw this scene were all stunned as well. Righteous anger began burning in their hearts as they looked at Gu Yue. They couldn't touch her it seemed since their king seemed quite fond of her, but that didn't stop them from cursing Gu Yue in their hearts.
'This girl is taking advantage of our king!'
Huang Yu and Gu Yue didn't know the mayhem that their actions had caused of course. The only thing that they felt was each other's heartbeat as they walked under the sky turned dark.
