Zu An was completely focused on sending his ki into the tub.
He paid no attention to what was happening around him.
Ji Xiaoxis small face was as red as an apple.
She didnt know if this was due to the effects of the drug, or her own embarrassment.
Even though his eyes were shut, she had never been so close to a man before.
She felt as if the slightest movement of that hand would be enough for it to come into contact with her.
Ji Xiaoxi brought up something else to hide her embarrassment.
“Big brother Zu, is this first miss Chus Snowflake Sword”
Zu An grunted in agreement.
“Wow, first miss Chu has even taught you the skill she uses to guard her own clan.
The two of you really are close,” Ji Xiaoxi said, her expression complicated.
“Our relationship is all right, I guess.” Zu An laughed loudly.
“But Im not the best student, or else I wouldve been able to make ice for you from all the way over there.”
Ji Xiaoxi didnt know what else to say.
This room became quiet.
As the smell of the young lady spread through the air, even Zu An felt like the atmosphere had grown slightly awkward.
“Do you feel better” he asked quickly.
Ji Xiaoxi nodded.
“Im almost recovered.
The effects of the drug will go away soon if the water is kept at this temperature.”
Zu An said in admiration, “Xiaoxi, you really are awesome.
I thought that the only way to get rid of the poisons effects… was to perform the deed eighteen times.
But you managed to neutralize its effects so easily.”
Ji Xiaoxis face became red.
“It wasnt that easy.
I have a certain level of resistance to different types of poisons because of my special constitution.
I didnt ingest too much of the drug, yet I had to take a Heart-calming Pill, and I had to infuse this cold water with many other medicines and soak in it just to barely neutralize the medicines effects… Big brother Zu, why do you have such a drug with you”
Zu An was slightly embarrassed.
“It was something I acquired from a defeated enemy.
I wouldve just thrown it away if Id known what it was.”
He began to despise himself as he spoke these words. Find me a man in this world who wouldnt want this sort of drug!
Its good to hang on to it even if one doesnt use it.
Zu An suddenly thought of something.
“Thats right, did you throw that bottle away”
Ji Xiaoxi shook her head.
Even though its a vile drug, it is still big brother Zus, so I cant just throw it away… let me take it out for you.”
She was just about to get up when her entire face grew red.
She stopped and said, “Big brother Zu, you absolutely must not open your eyes.”
“Understood,” Zu An nodded.
However, the image of her current appearance couldnt help but appear in his mind.
Ji Xiaoxi stretched her hand out of the tub, reaching for the pile of clothes that were nearby.
However, she was a petite little girl, and she was just unable to reach them.
She stood on her tiptoes so that she could lean further out.
If she had just stepped out of the tub, she wouldve easily reached her clothes.
However, she was still a shy young girl, and found it too embarrassing to do such a thing in front of a man, even if his eyes were closed.
At that moment, she suddenly slipped.
She lost her center of gravity and fell out of the tub entirely.
“Ah!” Ji Xiaoxi instinctively cried out.
Zu An jumped in fright.
He subconsciously reached out a hand to support her.
Oh **… His hand landed on something soft and warm.
Zu An knew that he was touching parts of her that he definitely shouldnt be touching.
He could already imagine the scene of Ji Dengtu chasing after him murderously.
Ji Xiaoxi was also stunned.
In a daze, her eyes met his, and her mind went completely blank.
From the side came an exaggerated scream.
The two of them raised their heads and saw Chu Huanzhao standing by the bathroom entrance.
Her entire body was trembling, and she was pointing an angry finger at them.
“You two… what are you doing!”
Zu An swallowed with difficulty.
“Would you believe me if I said that I was just trying to support her”
“What do you think!” Chu Huanzhaos eyes seemed to be shooting out gouts of flame.
Damned brother-in-law! Stinky brother-in-law! Is this how you repay the Chu clan After this, how dare you face my big sister, or even me!
You have successfully trolled Chu Huanzhao for 233…233… 233…
Ji Xiaoxi finally recovered from her daze.
However, she didnt have much experience with such situations, and all she could do was try not to faint from embarrassment.
Zu An quickly brought a set of clothes and draped them over her.
“Xiaoxi, stay here and put on some clothes.
Well wait for you outside.”
“Thank you…” Ji Xiaoxi was extremely grateful for his consideration, but a thought hit her soon after, leaving her stunned.
She was clearly the one who had been groped by him.
What was she doing, thanking him
Zu An gave an embarrassed laugh.
He hurriedly left the bathroom, pushing Chu Huanzhao out and closing the bathroom door along the way.
“What are you doing here, Huanzhao” Zu An asked.
Chu Huanzhao sneered incessantly.
“I wouldnt have stumbled upon such an exciting scene if I hadnt come here! This Ji Xiaoxi always seems all prim and proper—I didnt expect her to be a vixen who seduces men!”
She raised her voice on purpose, as if she wanted the person in the bathroom to hear her.
You have successfully trolled Chu Huanzhao for 66… 66… 66…
Zu An frowned.
“Huanzhao, you are being too rude.”
Chu Huanzhao sneered.
“She clearly knows that you have a wife, but she still seduced you! If she isnt scared of being disrespectful, why should I be”
You have successfully trolled Chu Huanzhao for 99… 99… 99…
Rage points kept flowing in through his System, yet Zu An felt no joy.
“Come on, its really not what youre thinking.
I asked miss Ji to help me look into some medicine, and she was accidentally poisoned.
She needed to soak in ice water to get rid of the poisons effects…” Zu An quickly explained.
Chu Huanzhao still didnt believe him.
“What kind of poison needs you to strip completely An aphrodisiac”
Zu Ans breath caught. You hit the nail on the head.
However, knowing Ji Xiaoxis good reputation, he was embarrassed to admit this.
“Its really not at all what youre thinking! Even if you dont trust miss Ji, you have to trust my character!”
Chu Huanzhao blinked.
Her anger subsided a bit.
You have successfully trolled Ji Xiaoxi for 22… 22… 22...
She clearly heard what he said.
But Chu Huanzhao wasnt so easily fooled.
“Isnt her little aunt the principal Why didnt she go to her then Why did she have to take a bath with a man like you”
Zu An forced a bitter smile and continued with his explanation.
“Principal Jiang had something she had to take care of…”
By this time, Ji Xiaoxi had already dressed herself.
She quickly exited the bathroom and said quietly, “Im going home first.”
She rushed off without even waiting to hear their reply.
Zu An sighed.
What in the world was this He didnt do anything wrong, yet there was such a huge disaster.
Chu Huanzhao was less than impressed by his sigh.
“What, are you upset that I ruined your happy time”
“I just hate how such a misunderstanding leaves everyone embarrassed.
On top of that, she was offended for no reason…” Zu An exhausted a great deal of energy, and just barely convinced Chu Huanzhao that Ji Xiaoxi had really come here to detoxify herself.
A flash of horror struck Chu Huanzhao.
“Oh no… what if Principal Jiang secretly makes things difficult for you because of this Divine Physician Ji cares a lot about her daughter too.
What if he comes after you”
“Miss, isnt it a bit too late to be worrying about this now” Zu An said dejectedly.
“How about I go and apologize to her right now” Chu Huanzhao regretted her excessive display earlier, especially now that she knew Ji Xiaoxi had only ended up like that because she had been helping her brother-in-law look into a poison.
Ill find another chance to explain things to her.” Zu An was worried that something else might go wrong if these two girls met again.
“I wont tell big sis about todays matter then.
But if there is a next time…” Chu Huanzhao snorted, and then she bared her adorable fangs.
“There definitely wont be a next time.” Zu An would definitely get the academy to change his locks.
Chu Huanzhao clearly wasnt in the mood to sleep after what had just happened.
However, she still searched around his residence first.
Only when she didnt find any suspicious traces of women living here did she finally leave in satisfaction.
Zu An mopped away his sweat.
Suddenly, letting his harem argue amongst themselves to earn him Rage points didnt seem like his brightest idea.
Only when he returned to the classroom and saw the envious eyes of his fellow students did his mood improve slightly.
The days lessons passed by quickly.
When he finally walked out of the main gates of the academy, Wang Yuanlongs carriage was already waiting there.
As Zu An and Wei Suo got into the carriage, they suddenly noticed another Wang clan carriage waiting beside theirs.
Zu An was curious.
Were they waiting for others from the academy
Soon afterwards, two beautiful figures walked out from the academy.
One of them was refined and elegant, exuding a hint of tenderness and charm.
Who else could this be but Zheng Dan
Zheng Dan nodded slightly in his direction when she noticed his gaze.
“Greetings, fellow student Zu.”
“Hello miss Zheng,” Zu An replied in embarrassment.
This woman, really… it was allhusband anddaddy before, yet now shes acting like a completely different person!
However, he had to give her credit for how well she played her part.
“Are you going to the Four Way Restaurant too” Zu An asked curiously.
He noticed that she was walking towards Wang clans carriage.
Im not the only one, big sister Xie is coming as well.” Zheng Dan giggled as she nudged Xie Daoyun, who was next to her.
