She Can Finally Sleep!

Under Li Ji’s step-by-step guidance, Hua Manman was finally able to help him take off the many layers of wedding garments, until all he had left covering his body was a cloak of thin snow-colored undergarments.

She had to admit, although this man’s character and temperament were too complicated to condense into one phrase, his figure really was good.

After taking off the luxurious and heavy wedding garments, his entire person looked even more tall and slender, to the point where even though his legs were unable to be used, it was still not enough to diminish his brilliance.

Hua Manman helped him let loose his hair that was tied into a bun on top of his head and waited upon him as he freshened up.

Once everything was finished, Hua Manman let out a long sigh of relief.
She could finally go to sleep!

She efficiently and swiftly removed all her clothing and jewelry, and washed her face without much care.
She had just lifted up a corner of the quilt and was about to lie down on the outer edge of the bed when she heard the man lying on the bed speak:

“You are not allowed to sleep here.”

Hua Manman’s movements stopped, and from her small head a large question mark seemed to float up.

“You’re to sleep over there,” Li Ji said, pointing towards the outer room outside the bedroom.

Hua Manman turned her head stiffly and looked at the direction in which he was pointing.

She saw that there, placed right outside the bedroom, was a bamboo couch.

In order to facilitate waiting upon the masters of the house at night, a bamboo couch was set up specifically outside the bedroom for the maid in charge to rest on at night.

But because tonight was the wedding night of Zhao Wang and Hua Ruren, the wise servants didn’t want to come in and disturb them, so the servants in charge of waiting upon them at night stayed in an adjacent room instead, leaving the bamboo couch in the outer room empty.

Hua Manman gawked at the bamboo bed in disbelief.

She worked tirelessly to accompany this dog-like man for most of the night, but by the end of it all she was actually driven to sleep on the bamboo couch outside!

When Li Ji heard the phrase “dog-like man”, his expression immediately became dangerous.

Hua Manman keenly caught onto the dangerous shift in atmosphere.

She didn’t dare to try and go against him anymore, so she immediately put the quilt down and pulled the corners of the quilt back to their original location, leaving not a single fold behind.

“Okay, this concubine will go sleep outside.”

After saying this, she numbly made herself sparse and left the room.

There was no way the bamboo couch was as comfortable as the bed, and it felt hard as she lie upon it.
But for Hua Manman right now, she didn’t care about the quality of where she slept as long as she had a place to get some sleep!

She really was too tired, and was almost unbearably sleepy.

As soon as her head touched the pillow, her eyes closed.

She immediately drifted off into a deep sleep.

Li Ji, on the other hand, couldn’t sleep.

Ever since the end of the war, he had suffered from insomnia.

He turned sideways.
Looking through the thin screen between the inner and outer rooms, he saw the sight of the woman sleeping on the bamboo couch.

In this otherwise silent room, he could clearly hear the sound of the woman’s gentle and steady breathing as she fell asleep.

She really fell asleep.

Li Ji was a little surprised.

He originally thought that this woman would secretly try to do something to him, under the guise of it being their wedding night.

Yet in the end, she did nothing.

When Li Ji had first seen her in Zhong An Bo’s estate and saw her threatening to kill herself, his heart actually wasn’t that shaken.

He had already seen this kind of thing quite a lot, so he was already used to it.

He just felt a little annoyed.

He was impatient to deal with these trivial matters, so he wanted to withdraw his arranged marriage with Hua Manman.

Who could predict that at that time, he would hear the voice of Hua Manman’s inner thoughts —

The real thoughts that she kept inside her heart were the complete opposite of what she let appear on her face.

This contrast was so strong that Li Ji started to develop a little interest in her.

At that time, he temporarily changed his mind and did not bring up the topic of withdrawing their marriage.

He wanted to see, what exactly was this woman trying to do?

Was she like everyone else, who wanted to scheme and gain something from him?

As a result he waited for a long time, but couldn’t hear any thoughts indicating scheming or calculations in her mind.
