Green Demon detected the leisurely fragrance seeping out from the door crack. He knew very well what She Qi was doing in the room. He quickened his pace and turned to leave.
In the room, She Qi was sitting by the bed and looking at the sleeping Xu Ye. His eyes were especially affectionate, and there was an unconcealable smile in them as he gently stroked Xu Ye’s hair.
At the head of the bed, a woman in a long black dress and a mask was mixing spices. Her fingers, which were covered in red nail polish, moved slowly. Every move was so elegant.
At this moment, Xu Ye, who was sleeping on the bed, seemed to be annoyed. He raised his hand and slapped She Qi’s palm, which had been stroking him non-stop.
He said impatiently, “Don’t touch me. Get lost!” With that, Xu Ye looked very uneasy. He turned his back to that person and continued to sleep.
She Qi looked at the woman with a dark expression and urged impatiently, “Are you done? Why are you taking so long?”
Seeing that She Qi was angry, the woman immediately lowered her head and said respectfully, “I’m really sorry. I’ll be done soon.”
The woman sped up her actions and quickly prepared the incense before lighting it.
She closed the lid of the incense burner, and faint pink smoke rose from it.
Xu Ye, who had been sleeping uneasily, relaxed his furrowed brows when he smelled the fragrance. His face revealed a gentle expression unique to women.
She Qi watched this scene excitedly and urged anxiously, “Xi’er? Xi’er! Wake up.”
Xu Ye, no, Bai Wanxi, slowly opened her eyes and turned to look at him. Surprised, she asked in confusion, “Who are you? Where’s Jiaojiao? Why isn’t she with me?”
She Qi looked at Xu Ye. Even though Xu Ye still looked like Xu Ye, She Qi knew that the person in front of him was none other than the woman he loved, Bai Wanxi.
Even though her appearance and gender had changed, She Qi was still certain that the person in front of him was the person he had been searching for for so many years.
“Xi’er! My beloved wife, I’ve finally found you! Quick, give me a hug!” She Qi was so excited that his eyes almost popped out. He pounced towards Bai Wanxi.
Bai Wanxi’s expression changed drastically. Without hesitation, she raised her hand and slapped him hard.
She Qi’s face was all twisted from this slap. He raised his hand in a daze and touched his swollen face. His expression turned doubtful.
“Lord She Qi! Are you alright?” The woman in the black dress was furious when she saw this. She looked at the slap mark on She Qi’s face and glared at Bai Wanxi. “Bai Wanxi! Are you crazy? You actually dared to hit Lord She Qi?! Where did you get such guts from?”
Bai Wanxi was also stunned by her actions. She looked at her palm in a daze.
She didn’t hold back at all when she slapped She Qi. She slapped him so hard that half of his face had gone crooked, causing her own hand to hurt.
However, for some reason, Bai Wanxi felt a sense of satisfaction from slapping She Qi.
