Chapter 226: Yibei Master’s return
Fang Chixia thought that it would be better to wait for Xiao Zuo’s condition to get slightly better before she leaves.
Indeed, Xiao Zuo got better after she came, but who knows, after merely two hours, he started burning up again.
This recurred throughout the night. He tossed and turned and until dawn has arrived, his condition remained the same.
What’s more, though he was ill and was feeling uncomfortable, he held Fang Chixia’s hand and pressed her hand under his head, as if fearing that she’ll leave.
Sha Zhixing took everything in her eyes. Not knowing when Xiao Zuo will be completely restored, she glanced at Fang Chixia and suggested, “Miss Fang, if you don’t mind, why don’t you stay here for a few days?”
Fang Chixia’s back was visibly stiff betraying her hesitance.
“Xiao Zuo seems to like you very much.” Sha Zhixing added.
Fang Chixia was really averse to staying. She just believes that she shouldn’t stay in. She doesn’t want Luo Yibei to come back and meet her here.
However, with Xiao Zuo’s condition, if she insists on going back, she’ll never be at ease.
Fang Chixia pondered on Sha Zhixing’s suggestion for a while. Finally, assuming that Luo Yibei shouldn’t be back soon, she nodded.
Sha Zhixing smiled brightly and leaning sideways, she ordered the housekeeper. “Lin Shu, go and arrange a room for Miss Fang.”
“Miss Fang, please come with me!” The housekeeper took the lead and took Fang Chixia out of the room.
The villas in the Luo’s Residence were truly magnificent. Each has many rooms inside.
However, Fang Chixia’s purpose in staying was so she wouldn’t worry about Xiao Zuo. The housekeeper arranged a room very close to Xiao Zuo’s room. It was just next door.
Unbeknownst to her, the room she was given was adjacent to Luo Yibei’s room. It is the only room the separates Xiao Zuo and Luo Yibei’s room.
So, in any chance circumstances, she would definitely run into Luo Yibei as he would be just next door.
After her room was arranged, Sha Zhixing sent a message to let her rest first, and Xiao Zuo would be temporarily taken care of by a servant.
Fang Chixia hasn’t closed her eyes for the whole night so she was a bit exhausted.
Holding the bathrobe prepared by a maid, she went into the bathroom and took a shower before going to sleep.
Just as she entered the bathroom, there was a commotion outside the building. Seems like someone has arrived.
Fang Chixia didn’t care much. She closed the bathroom door, filled the bathtub with water and soaked herself in a bubble bath.
The footsteps downstairs were getting closer and closer and seemed to be heading in her direction. It was accompanied by the voice of a maid’s greetings, “Young Master, you’re back!”
With the sound of water in the bathroom, the sound outside was quite muffled. Fang Chixia heard nothing clearly and just brushed it off.
In the hallway, a figure strode straight to this side, passing by Xiao Zuo’s room. He went in to see the situation and then went back into his room.
When he came to the door of his bedroom, he heard the sound of running water in the bathroom next door. His brows couldn’t help but wrinkle.
The room next door has always been empty and no one usually stays there!
In the bathroom, Fang Chixia was still enjoying her bath.
She stayed inside for about ten minutes and walked out covered in her bathrobe. She walked out to the balcony with a towel in hand and dried her hair.
The balcony of her room and Luo Yibei’s balcony were just side by side with only less than a meter gap in the middle. From her position, she can completely see what’s going on the other side.
Just as soon she walked out, a slender figure next door slowly came out…
