Zhan Qingchen was dumbfounded.
She had imagined countless answers in her head, but she didn’t expect Su Shi to be so direct!
This was the first time someone had confessed to her!
And that person was her sworn enemy!
Unprepared, her mind went blank and she stammered, “How can you like me?”
“Yes, how can I like you?”
Su Shi’s smile was still the same, but his eyes could not hide the sadness, “You are a peerless genius, the main successor of Tianji Pavilion, and a sword fairy admired by thousands.”
“As for me?”
“I am an evil demon practitioner who is rejected by the world and hated by everyone.”
“How can a stone full of mud be worthy of liking the bright moon?”
His voice was low and filled with self-deprecation.
His dark eyes were bottomless, filled with a touch of sadness.
Zhan Qingchen’s heart wavered, she subconsciously spoke, “That’s not what I meant, I….”
She had never been so confused.
It was said that Shu Shi had done such an out-of-bounds thing, she should have hated him so much that she was eager to cut him into 8 pieces.
But looking at his appearance now, she didn’t bring herself to put hatred in her heart.
Zhan Qingchen controlled her emotions and explained, “It’s not a question of whether you’re worthy or not, I just don’t understand why you like me? You and I, righteous and evil, have always been hostile and do not understand each other, not to mention that I almost killed you before.”
There was constant friction between the two, but there was no deeper intersection.
Most of Zhan Qingchen’s understanding of Su Shi came from sect intelligence.
A demon practitioner who commits all evils, a playboy rich b*stard, and the son of Yun Qiluo, the Nether Demon Venerable…
The reason why she wanted to kill him was also a task given by the sect, to clean up Yun Qiluo’s influence in the Southwest Region.
“Don’t you know me well enough?”
Shu Shi said, “Zhan Qingchen, your nickname is Zhaozhao, taken from ‘làn zhāozhāo xī wèi yāng’, it means ‘sparking bright’, only your master calls you by that name.”
(TLN: this is an ancient poem called ‘Lord within the Cloud‘ by Qu Yuan, for a translation of the lyrics, please go here https://frankwatsonpoet.com/lord-of-clouds/)
“You love to meditate, love sweets, hate men, hate disorder.”
“Sometimes you go to enjoy poetry, but you only hum “Nine Songs” in the medicine house.”
(Tln: Nine Songs is a compilation of 11 poems by Qu Yuan, and ‘Lord within the Cloud’ is also one of them)
“Has a severe obsession with cleanliness and doesn’t like to come into contact with anyone.”
Listening to him speak, Zhan Qingchen couldn’t help but be stunned, her eyes full of disbelief.
Overall, the points he brought up had nothing wrong with them.
Although those things are not secret, there are some small hobbies that even the closest friends don’t know, but the person in the demon sect in front of her understands it very clearly.
Zhan Qingchen was puzzled: “How can you know this stuff?”
Su Shi said lightly: “When you like someone, you will naturally find a way to understand everything about that person.”
Zhan Qingchen’s ears turned red, and her slender hands calmly grasped the hem of her clothes.
It turns out that there are really people in this world who love me secretly!
This made her feel numb, at a loss, flustered and shy, not knowing what to do.
Su Shi breathed a sigh of relief.
In order to find an excuse for his previous behavior, he could only take risks and choose to confess affectionately.
This was a test of acting ability.
Yet it seemed to have gone well.
Although his cultivation base is average, he has given birth to a good complexion, coupled with the pale face caused by the unhealed injury, it is easy to arouse woman sympathy and pity.
Who would have the heart to hurt an emotionally and physically wounded man?
What’s more, this man loves you very much!
Even the most indifferent woman would melt in the end!
Zhan Qingchen was completely tricked by him, yet she wasn’t easy to fool either.
“Since you like me, why did you fight me everywhere before?”
Su Shi sighed and said in a low voice, “I am a person of the demon sect, I have no other choice.
But, although I am not a good person, I have never really hurt Chief Zhan.”
Zhan Qingchen frowned.
Thinking about it, it seemed to be the case.
Although Su Shi opposed her everywhere, he was resolved by her every time, and never caused her any great harm.
So those were all his intentions?
“I know that I will die.
If I can choose, I hope to die at the hands of Chief Zhan.”
There seemed to be a faint light in Su Shi’s eyes, the corners of his mouth curled upwards in a bright arch, “If this life is destined to not be able to love you, then I am willing to use my own death to add another merit to Chief Zhan, this is the last little thing I can do for you.”
Zhan Qingchen was stunned.
“I regard you as an enemy, but you always think of me, even at the risk of dying in my hands?”
Thinking of Su Shi’s satisfied smile “before he died”, a string seemed to break in her heart.
Su Shi took a breath, “Everything that needs to be said has been made clear, Chief Zhan can do it now.”
Zhan Qingchen regained his senses, “Do what?”
Su Shi frowned and said, “Didn’t you come to kill me?”
Zhan Qingchen hesitated.
According to the sect’s mission, it was indeed to kill Su Shi, but after knowing the other party’s intentions, how could she still do it?
She even began to doubt the accuracy of the sect’s intelligence.
Was this gentle man in front of her really a villain who committed all sorts of evils?
At the same time, an order sounded in Su Shi’s mind:
[The plot has changed]
[Zhan Qingchen changed her mind and influenced the subsequent plot trend, gaining 5 plot points.]
[Please continue your efforts.]
“That’s a change of plot?”
Su shi’s eyes lit up.
He just wanted to save his little life, but he didn’t expect a windfall!
Zhan Qingchen was one of the female leads.
Her every move, even a single thought, could change the plot, which was a treasure for Su shi!
At this moment, Zhan Qingchen stood up and said, “You should rest first, other things …… I will talk about it later.”
She prepared to leave, leaving me alone?
“Is this the way to go?”
Su Shi was immediately anxious.
She was a treasure, how could he let her go so easily.
“Chief Zhan, I like you!”
“I know, don’t shout too loud.”
Zhan Qingchen’s cheeks turned red and she wanted to make a hole in the ground and hide in it soon.
Seeing that she was about to leave, Su Shi exclaimed in his desperation, “Please accept my feelings!”
Zhan Qingchen’s movements froze, and he stayed in place like a puppet.
“Accept, your feelings?!”
