After Chu Luo finished speaking, she realized that Li Yan had suddenly pursed his lips and was looking at her deeply.
Puzzled, she asked, “What’s wrong?”
Li Yan looked into her eyes for a few seconds before saying, “Push me to your bedroom or help me.”
Chu Luo frowned. She looked at his straight and long legs on the cushion of the wheelchair and felt a little troubled.
Li Yan frowned. “Why?”
Chu Luo was a little conflicted. The bedroom was her boudoir, and she didn’t like outsiders entering it. Besides, as the High Priestess, only other people served her. She had never served anyone before.
She thought for a moment and suddenly thought of something to say. “Men and women shouldn’t touch each other.”
“…” Li Yan tried his best to control his temper and said in a low voice, “Don’t look, then. Just treat me like this.”
“How is that possible!” Chu Luo pulled a long face. “Do you think your legs are like this because of an ordinary ailment? How would I know what’s going on without looking?”
Li Yan had the urge to crush the little thing in front of him. “Then what are you conflicted about?”
Chu Luo didn’t answer him. She looked up at the living room and pointed at the sofa. “Go to the sofa.”
Li Yan also looked at the sofa, and there was disdain on his face. “It’s too small.”
“You’re so troublesome.”
Li Yan, whom no one had ever dared to call troublesome, kept reminding himself to calm down.
After a few seconds, he suppressed his violent temper and said, “Go get a pair of scissors.”
Chu Luo nodded and turned around to look for the scissors.
However, she couldn’t find it even after searching the entire apartment. She returned and asked, “What do you want to do with it?”
“Cut my pants.”
“Why didn’t you say so earlier?”
After saying that, Chu Luo squatted at his feet and pulled his trouser leg, wanting to tear it.
A cold voice sounded above her head. “My pants are made of XX material. You…”
Chu Luo looked up at him, blinked, and asked, “What did you want to say?”
Li Yan looked at his torn trousers and pursed his lips tightly.
Chu Luo paid no heed to that and continued to tear his pants up a little.
Then, she studied his leg carefully.
Li Yan looked down at her, only to see her fan-like eyelashes fluttering.
Chu Luo studied it for a while before looking at the other one. Half an hour later, she looked up at him with a strange expression.
Li Yan’s expression froze. “What?”
“You were cursed by someone. Moreover, it’s a fatal curse…” Chu Luo’s tone was a little strange. “You are really lucky. Usually, those who are inflicted with this curse would definitely die, but you only ended up crippled. ”
She then asked curiously, “Could it be that you’d received some great blessing that allowed you to escape death?”
Li Yan pursed his lips tightly and didn’t speak, but his gaze on her was a little strange.
Chu Luo blinked and looked at him.
After a moment, Li Yan asked, “Can you remove my curse?”
He added, “If you can, that jade pendant will be yours.”
“Hey, hey, hey… Didn’t you give me that piece of jade a long time ago?” Chu Luo muttered in dissatisfaction. “You are indeed a big baddie who goes back on his word.”
After saying that, she angrily slapped him, stood up, and said fiercely, “Do you think I can’t kill you right now?”
Li Yan looked at her flushed face and disheveled hair and calmly dangled some benefits in front of her. “Help me treat my leg and I’ll help you find whatever you want.”
Chu Luo blinked and tilted her head to think. She wanted a lot of things. In the next two months, she would indeed not have time to look for them personally.
Li Yan looked at her and asked, “What do you need to treat my leg?”
Chu Luo said, “I need to know who put the curse on you.”
Li Yan suddenly exuded a strong murderous aura. “The person who cast the curse is already dead.”
“…” Chu Luo frowned and asked again, “Why did that person curse you?”
When Chu Luo heard this, she thought for a while and nodded at him. “I understand, but after I remove the curse on you, you have to promise me one thing.”
Li Yan looked at her with evident displeasure.
‘Is this little thing trying to take advantage of me?’
Chu Luo wasn’t happy to see that look on his face. “What kind of expression is that? It will definitely take a lot of energy for me to help you break the curse. Next, I have to prepare for the college entrance examination. What I need the most is energy. I want you to take care of my three meals a day and ensure that my nutrition can keep up.”
She realized that she wasn’t used to eating food from the school nor did she like eating from restaurants. Right now, eating was a huge problem for her.
Li Yan looked at the conflicted expression on her face and really didn’t know how to react. In the end, he nodded indifferently. “Sure.”
Satisfied, she squatted down again and placed a hand on his knee. She muttered something quickly, like a song or a poem.
Soon, she exuded a mysterious and sacred aura.
Seeing her like this, Li Yan moved his fingers on the armrest and narrowed his eyes.
After an unknown period of time, Chu Luo only stopped when she felt that her body was about to collapse.
At this moment, her face was a little pale, but her eyes were still sparkling. She said to Li Yan, “Your curse is a little powerful. I need more time to undo it. I want to sleep now. Let’s continue tomorrow.”
She then ignored Li Yan’s reaction and stood up to walk to her bedroom.
Li Yan looked at the closed bedroom door and felt his legs, which had regained a bit of sensation now. A dark glint flashed across his eyes.
After a while, he pressed on the armrest.
Soon, Qin Ming walked in and respectfully called out, “Master.”
Li Yan said, “I don’t want anyone to know that I’m here.”
Li Yan was silent for a few seconds before saying, “Go and find the best chef to prepare breakfast.”
Qin Ming was a little surprised but, nonetheless, he quickly replied, “Yes.”
Then he walked behind him. “Master, I’ll push you over to rest first.”
Chu Luo went to sleep as soon as she returned to the bedroom. When she opened her eyes, it was already half an hour later than she had planned.
She quickly got out of bed, got dressed, and washed up. Then, she took her phone and English books and walked into the living room.
However, when she opened the door, she saw the man sitting on the sofa in her living room. She asked strangely, “Did you not sleep last night?”
Li Yan glanced at the book in her hand and shifted his gaze back to the pen in his hand. He had no intention of answering her.
Chu Luo curiously walked over to take a look at the things on his notebook, then saw that it was full of curves. She retracted her gaze and walked to the window to listen to the English words on her portable audio player with the corresponding book in her hands.
Chu Luo’s voice wasn’t loud, but the living room was very quiet. Li Yan could easily hear her reciting the words.
Chu Luo had just started learning English and many of her pronunciations were off. This led Li Yan to conclude that her English was terrible!
Chu Luo had no idea what Li Yan was thinking about. After reciting those words for more than half an hour, she put the book back and continued to listen to the words as she walked out.
When she reached the living room door, Li Yan suddenly asked, “When are you going to treat my leg?”
Chu Luo thought for a moment. “At least after 10:30 at night.”
Li Yan narrowed his eyes and said forcefully, “That’ll be too late. I’m leaving the day after tomorrow. You have to treat me within these two days.”
Chu Luo also wanted to treat this person’s leg as soon as possible so that she wouldn’t have to face his cold face so often. She said, “Sure, I won’t go to night study for the next two days. I’ll treat you when I come back at five.”
After saying that, she opened the door and walked out.
