My Princess Has Been Reborn - Chapter 38.1
Chapter 38.1 – Cute As A Kitten (1)
Lu Qipei had always been very calm when drunk. Just like that time when Qi Yang brought her to the palace when they were first reunited, the former had poured her some wine to make small talk. And the result was that Lu Qipei behaved really well even when drunk – she didn’t say anything that shouldn’t be said, and when she finished saying things that should be said, she just fell asleep on the table.
Today was different. Lu Qipei was either drunk or drugged. She looked as if she were drunk, but she wasn’t as docile as she usually would be.
Qi Yang withdrew her hand, feeling a burning sensation in her palm as if it was on fire. But she knew very clearly that there was nothing wrong with it; she had just been kissed.
With a mix of embarrassment and panic, the blush on her face increased by twenty percent.
If Lu Qipei was still sober at the moment, she would’ve been stunned and surprised by the rare moment of embarrassment Qi Yang was showing. But if she really was sober, the she couldn’t have done such a frivolous act in the first place.
If Lu Qipei is still awake at the moment, he will be surprised at Qiyang’s appearance at the moment, and will be stunned by her rare shame. But if she is really sober, she can’t do such a frivolous act.
Qi Yang’s heart felt very complicated for a while. Seeing Lu Qipei still clinging to her, she simply raised her hand and pushed Lu Qipei back to her shoulder. It wasn’t clear whether she was angry or not, but Qi Yang reprimanded her in a low voice, “Don’t cause trouble. Close your eyes and get some rest.”
If you said that the Lu Qipei of today was restless, then she really was restless. But if you said that she was obedient, then she really was obedient as well. Hearing Qi Yang’s words, she just obediently said ‘oh’ then leaned her head on Qi Yang’s shoulder. She actually closed her eyes and no longer moved, as if she wasn’t the hooligan that had just taken advantage of Qi Yang’s lips.
Qi Yang breathed a sigh of relief, and she didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. But before she could completely relax, she felt a gentle and light breath brush on her neck, and it felt like a pair of hands were plucking on her heartstrings…
The carriage was still moving forward, and Her Royal Highness The Princess inside the carriage inexplicably felt some kind of torment.
Qi Yang received the news a bit slow today, and she left the palace in a rush. It was already late outside now, and the palace gates had been closed. The coachman could read the hint very well and brought them back to Qi Yang’s courtyard without asking any further question.
Qi Yang secretly breathed a sigh of relief when she felt the carriage stop. God knew how much her heart was beating because of Lu Qipei, but what else could she do when the two of them were stuck inside the carriage and the latter’s mind was addled? Of course, there was nothing she could do but endure her unconscious flirting and teasing.
She could finally be relieved at this moment, and Qi Yang patted the person leaning on her shoulder and called to her, “Ah Pei, we’re here. Time to get off.”
Lu Qipei opened her eyes in a daze, her gaze still unfocused, as if she couldn’t figure out where she was. But when she felt the familiar aura around her, she subconsciously rubbed Qi Yang’s neck. She looked so soft and easy to bully.
Qi Yang’s heart also went soft from her rubbing, but she knew that it wasn’t good to let her keep doing this, so she took Lu Qipei’s hand and stood up. The latter was stunned for a while, but then obeyed and stood up as well.
However, Lu Qipei was dizzy like a drunk, and couldn’t even stand up without swaying. When she took a step forward, she instead fell into the arms of Qi Yang who was standing next to her.
Fortunately, Qi Yang reacted quickly and caught her, but Lu Qipei just hung on her shoulder and gave a silly smile.
Qi Yang had really never seen Lu Qipei smile so foolishly – the latter had always looked brilliant in her heart. But the contrast didn’t make her feel disillusioned, and just made her feel more pity for Lu Qipei.
It had to be her, isn’t it?
When Qi Yang thought that way, her gaze grew softer, but the corner of her lips also rose subconsciously.
She didn’t tarry long inside the carriage. Seeing that Lu Qipei could not walk by herself, she simply helped her, half supporting and half dragging her out. But Her Royal Highness The Princess was petite and frail – even though Lu Qipei was slim and dainty, it was obviously difficult for the princess to support her.
When the coachman waiting outside saw this and rushed forward to help, but Qi Yang stopped him before he could touch the corner of Lu Qipei’s clothes. Her Royal Highness The Princess was very protective of her property and wouldn’t let anyone else touch what’s hers. Right now, she didn’t know that Lu Qipei was physically dragged to the House of Happiness by Liu Chen and Kong Jie, otherwise the revenge on the Hanlin Academy gang would probably become more violent.
But revenge or whatnot was something to talk about later. Right now, Qi Yang was having difficulty helping Lu Qipei get off the carriage.
It was a flat road after getting off the carriage, and Lu Qipei was not overly drunk, so it wasn’t too difficult for her to stumble forward with Qi Yang’s help. She just took a wrong step occasionally and needed Qi Yang’s to pull her back or help her, but all in all it saved the latter a lot of effort.
But even then, by the time she managed to brink back the drunkard to the room, Qi Yang was also sweating from exhaustion.
“I won’t allow her to drink again in the future, it’s so hard to deal with.” Qi Yang murmured as she exhaled her breath. After thinking about what happened today, she added, “Especially counterfeit wines!”
Zhi Ting looked at her princess asking for trouble by herself, and only then reminded, “Your Highness, this is your bedroom.”
Qi Yang looked at her lightly and said in a matter-of-fact tone, “So?”
I’ve been a bit busy lately >.> I planned to post a chapter yesterday, but got so busy that I didn’t have time to translate anything. Anyways, here’s a back to back chapter to make up for yesterday.
