It was a sunny day.
Shi Qingluo called Xiao Hanzheng and brought their family to the hot spring manor bestowed by the emperor to enjoy the hot spring.
When they first arrived in the capital, Shi Qingluo went to the manor and asked someone to rebuild it with many hot spring pools made from stones of different sizes.
Some of the pools were even filled with medicinal herbs, like those in modern hot springs.
Each pool had different effects.
A few small courtyards had also been built beside them, and after soaking in the hot springs, people could rest there.
Many fields had been cleared for plantation near the hot springs, and off-season vegetables had been planted.
The ancients ability to imitate was also very strong.
Shi Qingluo had produced these vegetables from another season and sent some to her good friends houses.
Then, a few families also used the hot spring manor to grow off-season vegetables.
Following that, those families with a hot spring in their manor also started to follow the trend.
It wasnt because they wanted to sell them at a high price in the winter, but because they wanted to eat a few mouthfuls of green vegetables when the weather was cold.
Because of this, the price of a hot spring manor rose again and again.
Today, Shi Qingluo got the servant girls to move the cooking pots onto the carriage, in preparation for two tables of hot pot dinner.
Their family arrived at the hot spring villa at noon.
They ate a simple meal and went to soak in the hot spring.
Shi Qingluo and Xiao Hanzheng entered a small courtyard.
Mother Xiao brought Xiao Baili and the servant girls into a courtyard.
Xiao Erlang also brought the servant boys who followed them to another small courtyard.
Shi Qingluo took off her clothes in the inner room, put on her homemade suspenders skirt, and her cape before walking out.
At this moment, Xiao Hanzheng was standing by the hot spring pool with his cape on.
He had soaked in the hot spring in his previous life, but he had done it all by himself.
Now that he thought of soaking in the hot spring with his little wife, he felt a little hot in his heart.
When Shi Qingluo went out to the beach in the modern world, she had even worn a bikini swimsuit, so she took off her cape generously and went into the water wearing a suspenders skirt.
“Why are you standing there in a daze Come down and soak!” She waved at Xiao Hanzheng.
Only then did Xiao Hanzheng unwrap his cape.
He was wearing a pair of underpants underneath and also entered the hot spring.
Before he went into the water, he saw his little wife staring at his waist, and his ears couldnt help but turn red.
After going into the water, he walked to his little wifes side and asked with a smile, “What are you looking at”
Shi Qingluo smiled and said, “Im looking to see if you have abs.”
She had now realized that not only was her young husband handsome, but his figure was also a golden ratio.
He was those men that looked skinny and fit when he was dressed, and he even had eight-pack abs.
Furthermore, he wasnt like the muscular men, he was the kind that looked healthy and sexy even though he had a mermaids body.
Xiao Hanzheng reached out and hugged her shoulder.
He leaned close to her ear and chuckled.
“Is it nice”
Shi Qingluo nodded frantically.
“Yes, its too nice.”
In the past, she was single, so she really didnt pay attention to a mans figure and his muscles.
Now that Xiao Hanzheng was her man, she naturally went to see him openly.
Her eyes lit up as she looked at Xiao Hanzheng and asked, “Brother Zheng, I still want to touch it, can I”
In the past, when they slept together, they would only kiss, but she had never touched his abs before.
Xiao Hanzheng didnt know whether to laugh or cry.
“If you want to touch it, go ahead.”
Hence, Shi Qingluo reached out to touch his abs and praised, “Very good!”
Her husbands waist must be very good.
Xiao Hanzhengs eyes darkened.
“Wife, youre lighting a fire.”
Shi Qingluo blinked and reached out to poke his chest.
She gave him a coquettish look.
“So what Were husband and wife, whats there to be afraid of lighting a fire”
Although she said that, she was actually a little timid in her heart.
After all, she had never experienced anything like this before.
Such a small act seemed to be quite interesting.
However, she soon paid the price for such a small act.
After soaking in the hot spring, her lips were red and her neck was full of strawberries.
If not for Xiao Hanzhengs good self-control, the two of them would have consummated their marriage in the hot spring pool.
But this time, except for the last step, everything was completed.
Xiao Hanzheng carried her out of the hot spring pool to take a bath.
After taking a bath and waiting for her hair to dry, Shi Qingluo nestled in Xiao Hanzhengs arms and took a nap.
Xiao Hanzheng took a nap for a while and carried his sleeping little wife while he read a book.
From time to time, he could not help but lower his head and kiss her on the forehead.
His little wife was really a little vixen, one that would seduce his soul away.
Now that he was involved, what could he do He could only spoil her!
On the other hand, after Mother Xiao and Xiao Baili finished soaking in the hot spring, they strolled around the manor hand in hand.
Then, they heard a servant in the manor saying that there was a family in the village near the manor whose house had been crushed by the snow, and two children were trapped in the house.
People from the village came to the mountain to seek help.
Mother Xiao and Xiao Baili had always maintained their kindness.
After hearing this, they brought their servant boys and girls over, ready to see if they could help.
The village was not far from the mountain, and it only took less than the time it takes an incense stick to burn as they traveled on the carriage.
After the time it took an incense stick to burn, Xiao Baili felt that something was not right.
So she opened the window and found that the surroundings did not look like a village at all.
Instead, it was a forest.
She could not hold it in and immediately shouted, “Where are we Quick, stop the car.”
On the other hand, the servant in front did not stop the car.
Instead, he sped up.
Xiao Baili and Mother Xiaos expressions changed.
At this moment, they realized that they had been deceived.
It was because the two of them had been staying in Nanxi County.
The villages in Xiaxi Village were more rustic, so the two of them did not expect others to use this as bait.
That was why they had been deceived.
Xiao Baili grabbed Mother Xiaos hand and pulled the whip out from her waist.
“Mother, dont be afraid.
Ill protect you.”
Mother Xiao was a lot bolder now, but she still held her daughter nervously.
“Im not afraid.
Im not afraid.”
The carriage ran for another five minutes before it suddenly stopped.
Xiao Baili kicked open the door and pulled Mother Xiao out of the carriage.
She was already prepared to fight the bad guys, but she only saw a person standing not far away with his hands behind his back.
Mother Xiao was also holding the gold hairpin she took off her head when she got out of the carriage.
She was also a little confused.
The more she looked, the more she felt that this persons silhouette was somewhat familiar.
Then, her pupils shrank and she said, “Xiao Yuanshi”
Xiao Yuanshi, who was standing with his back facing the two of them, heard this voice and slowly turned around.
He was wearing a light blue brocade robe.
He didnt look like a general, but rather, like an elegant scholar.
There was a gentle smile on his face.
“Yuelan, I didnt expect you to recognize me at a glance.”
Mother Xiao remained silent.
Why is this damned man here What evil act is he trying to do
Ever since she slapped Xiao Yuanshi and scolded him, she had completely overcome her fear of Xiao Yuanshi.
Therefore, when she heard this and saw his gentle smile, she felt a little disgusted.
She rolled her eyes and said, “What do you mean I recognized you at a glance What are you thinking I only recognized you after looking at you for a long time, alright”
Xiao Yuanshi was speechless.
How was he supposed to respond to that
Moreover, he really did not expect that Kong Yuelan would roll her eyes in front of him.
Was she still the same submissive, gentle and virtuous wife that he used to have
Why did it feel like she was a different person
However, he had to admit that this Kong Yuelan was much more alive than she used to be.
