Lord Chu’s Wife is Wild - Chapter 239
“Lord, I still have something to report…”
Constable Ji, who had returned after leaving, could not help but open his mouth when he saw the scene before him.
He saw Lu Sheng sitting on the desk, holding Chu Sihan’s face with both hands. Chu Sihan was looking at her helplessly and dotingly.
No wonder the Lord was in such a hurry to chase him away. Did he wanted to have a love affair with Miss Lu?
The duo tilted their heads and looked at him.
Constable Ji had already crossed the threshold with one foot and the other was still outside.
He could neither enter nor retract his leg. He could only stand at his original spot nervously.
“Uh… Lord… Miss Lu, please continue. Continue!”
As he spoke, he held the sword with one hand and covered his eyes with the other. He shrunk his neck and silently retracted his foot that had already crossed the threshold.
However, before his retracted foot could touch the ground, a cold voice suddenly sounded.
Chu Sihan’s sharp gaze shot over. Constable Ji was so scared that he almost cried on the spot.
He swallowed his saliva and revealed a smile that was uglier than a cry. He said timidly, “I wanted to say that I have already gotten someone to put the invitation card that the Shi family sent in your room.”
Then, he consciously closed the door for the two of them and ran off without turning back.
Lu Sheng blinked and turned to look at Chu Sihan. Only then did she react. She immediately jumped off the desk in panic and scratched her nose awkwardly.
“Ah, I’m sorry, Lord… Lu Sheng was rude!”
Chu Sihan coughed lightly and said, “It’s alright.”
An imperceptible smile appeared on his thin lips.
“Lord, I might have to return to Huang Yang Town.”
She had been in Lin Jiang Mansion for a few days. Now that the case had been investigated clearly, it was time to return.
Chu Sihan’s smile disappeared and he frowned. “Didn’t you want to be rewarded with a hundred thousand taels?”
“Lord, please keep them for me.”
Lu Sheng hurried back to her chair.
He said unhappily, “Coincidentally, Miss Dongfang is getting married in a few days. Follow me to the capital with the bridal escort team and collect the reward at Dali Temple. Isn’t that good?”
Lu Sheng fell into deep thought.
Now, Lu Jiang and Lu Xin had moved to a house in town. He Qin and He Zhang also lived there.
When Lu Ran was on break, he would come back frequently. There was indeed nothing to worry about.
She did want to visit the capital, but…
She had already been a shopkeeper for so many days. If she continued to wash her hands off this, she did not know if her uncles would have any objections.
Seeing her silence, Chu Sihan continued to tempt her. “Don’t worry about the family. With Cousin Xianyun around, they’ll be fine.”
Lu Sheng raised an eyebrow. “What did the Lord say to Magistrate Fu?”
“Nothing. I’m just telling the truth.”
Chu Sihan picked up the bamboo scroll and continued reading.
“Telling the truth?”
Lu Sheng frowned suspiciously. What ‘truth’ was Chu Sihan saying?
She was about to pursue the matter further when she saw him reading the scroll attentively. She hurriedly closed her mouth.
She was about to go shopping when it started snowing again.
Lu Sheng sighed softly and could only walk back silently.
Chu Sihan glanced at her from the corner of his eye and smiled.
“Do you know how to grind ink?”
He spoke without lifting his head.
Lu Sheng nodded and walked to the desk. She smiled and asked, “Lord, do you need me to help you grind ink?”
Chu Sihan pointed to the side, hinting for her to do it herself.
Lu Sheng followed his finger and saw an inkstone and a few pieces of ink.
