The Cold King and His Spoilt Wife: His Genius Consort Is Breathtaking - Chapter 54
Chapter 54: The Woman in the King’s Manor
Xia Muqing moved closer to her and smiled evilly.
She spoke in a flirtatious manner.
“What a lovely name.
Just like you, your name is sweet.
I’ll have sweet dreams tonight.
” Her words made Tian Meng blush and her heart raced.
Her face was flushed.
Xia Muqing felt that she was much more adorable this way, and the smile in her eyes became more sincere.
She said, “All right, go out.
I’ll look for you again.
” Tian Meng didn’t even look at Ye Qingxuan who was behind her.
She bowed obediently and left.
Ye Qingxuan stared intently at Xia Muqing and sneered.
“Physician Xia, you’re so charming.
You even seduced my concubine.
” Xia Muqing grinned and replied, “No, I’m not.
There is merely a comparison.
” Ye Qingxuan’s expression turned even uglier.
Xia Muqing was delighted that he wasn’t feeling good.
She took a few steps closer to him and said, “Let’s start the acupuncture.
” Once Xia Muqing began working, her expression became serious.
After a few injections, Ye Qingxuan had already gotten used to the pain.
He gazed at Xia Muqing, who was inches away from him, with a deep expression.
Xia Muqing pretended not to notice his gaze and focused on her treatment.
She knew that Ye Qingxuan must be secretly investigating her changes.
But if she didn’t have a different skill, with Ye Qingxuan’s personality, the day after he was cured would probably be the day she died.
Therefore, she had to find a second bargaining chip that Ye Qingxuan had to keep her alive before the toxins in his body were cleared.
After the acupuncture was completed, Xia Muqing picked up the knife again and slit his ankles.

COM By now, his ankles were already in a terrible state.
His ankles were slit every day, and the injuries would heal and the cycle continued.
However, Ye Qingxuan remained silent.
Xia Muqing was also very wary of his temperament.
After that, she reminded him to take his medicine on time and she stood up to leave as usual.
Ye Qingxuan grabbed her and pulled her into his arms.
Xia Muqing was caught off-guard and moreover, she couldn’t fight his strength.
So she sat on his lap.
She wasn’t in a hurry to get up, because she knew that if he didn’t relinquish his grip, she definitely wouldn’t be able to break free.
She asked calmly, “What do you want?” Ye Qingxuan raised an eyebrow.
“Why don’t you behave like a woman at all? Don’t you feel embarrassed?” Xia Muqing quipped calmly, “Did you forget that the first time we met?” Ye Qingxuan’s expression turned cold and furious as he let go of her.
If not for the fact that Xia Muqing was too angry, she would never have mentioned it.
She had fervently hoped that he would forget about it.
Xia Muqing stood up and massaged her slightly red wrist.
She continued fearlessly, “Don’t use this ruse on me.
I prefer money or jewelry to you, because you’re not my type.
” With that, she strode off.
Ye Qingxuan, who was left behind, didn’t get angry.
Instead, he was mulling over what she meant by ‘not her type’.
Xia Muqing had just returned to her room when she was dazzled by the boxes of rewards that followed closely behind her.
A group of soldiers carried a box each, with a total of three large boxes neatly placed in the courtyard.
Xia Muqing opened a box to see a chest of gold, silver and jewelry.
Her expression shifted slightly.
That fellow was really… determined to bribe her.
This also meant that her recent actions had paid off.
She accepted them without hesitation.
The black eagle had been fooling around for the entire day.
When it saw Xia Muqing, it pounced on her.
Xia Muqing quickly dodged it.
If it really pounced on her, she would probably fall to the ground.
The black eagle stood aside looking sorrowful, as it looked at Xia Muqing pitifully.
Xia Muqing waved her hand helplessly and touched the feathers on its head.
The black eagle made a soft screening sound from her comfortable touch.
Xia Muqing paused as she really wanted to ask.
Was it really an eagle or the Azure Cloud Eagle? It’s not a cat.
After comforting the black eagle, she said, “Black eagle, take a trip back to the Sunset Mountains.
