Aromatic Flesh - Chapter 15.1
Our country is once again in full lockdown!!! O口O
People are dying from it here, about 200+ deaths per day… Everyone, please stay safe! ;w;
When Gu MingYue next woke up, she was already sprawling against the table in front of her. She gazed around the room, realizing that Mu JinYu was not here, and figured that he had probably gone outside to ride on his horse.
Her entire body and limbs were sore from sleeping at a weird angle, and she realized that she could not feel her lower body at all.
“Mm…” Gu MingYue wiggled her toes testingly, before trying to slowly stretch out her legs, but upon realizing that nothing is working for her, she grabbed her legs, which were now filled thoroughly with painful ‘pins and needles’, and by the time she had her legs fully stretched out, she was already sweating from the difficult action.
To think that she would be able to fall asleep under the pressure of Mu JinYu’s stare, and what’s more, her sumber had been long and comfortable. Gu MingYue was extremely speechless and somewhat thankful to it…
Mu JinYu’s expressions had been extremely unusual today, and no matter the countless guesses she ran through her mind as she massaged her legs, she was still very much puzzled.
Perhaps… Maybe… But no matter what, I shouldn’t be the cause of this… Gu MingYue comforted herself silently in her heart, because she could not recall having done something that would upset Mu JinYu at all. The world always talked about how deep and complicated a woman’s mind was, but obviously, the minds of men were also as complicated and as incomprehensible as the vast starry sky…
While Gu MingYue was still struggling to try to understand a man’s way of thinking, the carriage slowly came to a stop on the Emperor’s orders, as he had allowed everyone to rest and rectify their needs for a little while. Soon after that, the sliding door was opened from the outside, and still holding onto his riding-whip, Mu JinYu entered and sat cross-legged on the seat opposite to Gu MingYue.
“Finally awake?” The man took out a white silk towel prepared nearby and proceeded to wipe off the sweat on his forehead and neck, while enjoying the peaceful view of the beauty right in front of him, whose face was still blushing pink and her eyes still somewhat dazed from her satisfying sleep. The wonderful view at this moment could be described by the famous poem: ‘Hair, makeup and wine. Red face the color of blossoming spring.’ She was so very adorable.
“En.” Gu MingYue replied softly as she tried her best to widen her still-sleepy eyes.
She was delicate and looked pitifully weak, like a little kitten who was but a few days old. Gu MingYue leaned towards her suddenly and flicked her delicate nose with his index finger gently, “What a lazy kitten~ Come over here and wipe down your master’s body.”
Gu MingYue was momentarily stunned by the man’s pampering actions, but before she could wonder about the true reason for his sudden change in attitude, she stood up quickly and hurried to his side, before taking over the silk towel from his hands.
The silk towel was soft and smooth, and it was the most ideal material for towels, as not only was it made with a very comfortable texture, it was also very sweat absorbent.
Gu MingYue had merely held it against his back and neck, and in no time, the towel within her hand was already soaked entirely. She frowned slightly at the towel in hand, because she was still not done with Mu JinYu yet, as there was still sweat coating his back.
She recalled the extra clean silk towels that she had prepared and kept safely within one of the storage spaces, and softly asked him for his opinion. Upon his approval, she got up from the seat and removed one of the square cushions to reveal the space below.
She took out two of the white towels, and when she turned back to face Mu JinYu, she could clearly see his revealed chest, which was muscular and lean, but unlike the gem hidden underneath his clothes, his skin was smooth and white, while his looks were too beautiful for a man. No one could’ve imagined the muscles he hid underneath his clothes as they would’ve just assumed that he was yet another weak good-for-nothing dependent man who had nothing but good looks.
Due to the convenience of riding a horse, Mu JinYu was dressed in a silver riding gown embroidered with bright red laces, and he wore a clean white shirt underneath. A leather belt was tied around his waist as it held his pants in place.
But right now, the upper section of his clothes was taken off and was laid resting against the belt around his waist, exposing his entire muscular upper torso.
Gu MingYue’s eyes flashed with an appreciative gleam, because even though they had seen each other’s naked bodies many times, Mu JinYu’s body was not something she would ever get tired of.
Taken by his bewitching face… Gu MingYue shook her head slightly as she tried hard to drive the weird thoughts from her mind, before concentrating on wiping down Mu JinYu’s body.
Usually, because Gu MingYue was quite petite, her height barely reached Mu JinYu’s shoulders when she stood next to him. But right now, he was in a seated position and she was kneeling behind him. And as soon as she was done with his face, she straightened her body as she moved the cloth from under his arms before moving it to his chest from the top of his shoulders.
The fullness on her chest was pressed against his naked back, while the little hand was soft and tender as she wiped the towel back and forth his chest, inadvertently sliding over the two red beans on the man’s chest.
She was working hard and conscientiously, not realizing that her pure actions were like true torture to Mu JinYu, who was a man at his prime.
Mu JinYu, on the other hand, was somewhat regretting his decision to allow her to serve him, and just as he was about to stop her, the sliding door of the carriage was opened vigorously from the outside.
Instantly, Gu MingYue curled up like a frightened little bunny and hid behind Mu JinYu’s wide frame, while several male voices and waves of laughter entered her ears.
“We were wondering where JinYu went, to think that he’s back in his carriage to accompany his beauty!” This voice was clear and loud, filled with a teasing tone, “It took us hella long to find you!”
“Exactly, so, where’s the beauty? When are you going to show your brothers the unparalleled beauty that you had gotten head over heels for?” Another voice raised up, this time deep and hoarse, while the other laughed out loud in response.
As Gu MingYue hid behind Mu JinYu, she could clearly see the muscles on his back tensed up as the voices spoke and she figured it was because he was seen with his shirt down to his waist and it was making him extremely embarrassed.
