Jiang Hanyu was dumbfounded.
It’s not that Jiang Mo has never called him brother, but this time, he felt very different. The expression and tone of the other party’s words made him feel wrong, but he didn’t know exactly what was wrong.
Jiang Hanyu looked at the young man standing in front of him. He had seen him not too long ago, but he made him a little strange. It was obviously the same appearance, but it seemed to be a different person.
Jiang Hanyu knew from the beginning that Jiang Mo was good-looking, but the former Jiang Mo was pure and naive, just like a valuable flower grown indoors and was carefully cultivated. But now, even with the same delicate facial features, compared to before, his face was more developed, and there is a faint smile on the corners of his mouth, which gives people completely different feeling.
Seeing Jiang Hanyu staring blankly at himself, Jiang Mo frowned unhappily, put away his smile and said, “you…”
This sound is just like pressing a button. As soon as Jiang Mo opened his mouth, he saw Jiang Hanyu turned around as if he was frightened, leaving only one sentence: “I-I’ll go first, you have a good rest”, and left in a hurry.
No, am I that scary?
Jiang Mo touched his face, but he denied that. He remembered that the original owner looked very good, and his soul would only make this body more perfect, not ugly!
Jiang Hanyu hurried back to his yard and washed his face with cold water. He didn’t want to admit that he was dumbfounded by Jiang Mo and lost his attitude in front of his cousin who he was always despise.
On contrary Jiang Mo didn’t care about Jiang Hanyu’s attachments and inner disturbances, he planned to take a bath.
Jiangjia1 is a big family business. There is a natural cold spring on the mountain behind Jiangjia. The cold spring is large, like a small lake, Jiang Mo can swim in it for a few rounds in his mermaid form.
Since Jiang Mo discovered this cold spring in the memory of the original owner, he was deeply moved. His body is a mermaid and naturally he was very fond of water
Now that the protagonist has not torn his face2, and Jiang Mo’s treatment in Jiang’s family is still very high. If he want to swim in the cold spring, all he have to do is say a word, and someone will prepare everything.
February is an early spring, the weather is still very cold. In this season, the people of the Jiang family generally don’t come to the cold spring. JiangMo doesn’t like to be seen when taking a bath and doesn’t let anyone follow. Therefore, when he arrives, Jiang Mo is the only one.
Jiang Mo looked at the clear spring in front of him and was very satisfied.
He took off his clothes and slowly entering the spring. Jiang Mo sighed in satisfaction. He had not enjoyed such a quiet life for a long time.
Immersed in the spring, he allowed his divine consciousness to transform his body. The human body is too fragile for him. Although he can’t return to his prime state after the transformation, it can at least make this body no longer afraid of cold and heat, even a disease.
The silver light emerged from Jiang Mo and gradually covers the entire surface of the spring. Under the light, the young man’s body begin to change: transparent fins grow behind his ears and arms and underwater, his slender legs of human are gradually covered with silver scales.
The gorgeous fish tail broke through the water and splashing in bursts.
JiangMo leaned comfortably on a large stone, and the beautiful fish tail slapped the water one by one.
Suddenly, the sound of breaking branches came from a distance.
Jiang Mo got up quickly, and the mermaid characteristics on his body faded in an instant. He picked up the robes scattered on the bank, put it on, and walked carefully to the place where the sound was made.
He didn’t find anyone there, which means that this person was hiding well. It was only after he showed his tail that the intruder was exposed. Jiang Mo thought that person probably saw his Mermaid form.
I didn’t expect to be seen.
Jiang Mo pursed his lips. At the beginning, he covered his unconscious around the cold spring. Even if his soul was injured, no one should be able to see through his cover in this world without special ability.
Rarely, Jiang Mo felt curiosity in his heart.
Gu Zheng leaned on the stone wall and looked at the young man walking towards him under the moonlight. His whole body was tense up.
It’s not fear, but an extreme excitement. He felt that he was in a sweet dream at the moment, forgot everything and hoped that he could immerse himself in this beautiful dream forever.
When Jiang Mo get closer, he found a man whose seriously injured. His clothes and face were covered with blood and couldn’t seen his original appearance at all. Only a pair of eyes, such as first-class obsidian, are very beautiful.
The man was looked straight ahead and didn’t know Jiang Mo had walked in front of him.
Jiang Mo didn’t want this man to discover his true identity now, so he made a little illusion on him. However, he can’t use too much power that doesn’t belong to this world, especially for the protagonist and some other important characters, so the heaven wouldn’t notice him.
Jiang Mo leaned over and wanted to wipe his face to see what this person was like, but he didn’t expect him to grab his wrist while he stretched out his hand.
Hah? He woke up so quick, and his hands were still quite strong.
The man raised his head and asked fiercely. His voice was like immersed in a cold spring, cold and without any emotion.
“I was originally here. Seeing someone here, I come take a look” Jiang Mo’s face was innocent, and he can lied without making a draft. Then, he opened his mouth and said:
“Can you loosen me first? It’s a little hurt”
After saying that, he shook the arm that was held by the other party.
Gu Zheng lowered his eyes and looked at the wrist he was holding, It is already turn red.
He wanted to ask about the mermaid, but he was like an arrow at the end of its flight3.
Before get hit by Jiang Mo’s illusion, he had endured so hard to not faint, so he couldn’t hold on and fainted before he finished a sentence.
But even after he is in a coma, he still doesn’t let go of Jiang Mo’s hand, and hold it tightly.
Jiang Mo squatted down, looked at the man who had fallen into a coma in front of him, and active the system’s retrieval function:
Gu Zheng, the third prince, was the only direct son of the emperor of the current Dynasty. The second prince was the strongest opponent on the road of seizing the throne. If he didn’t have to give up the throne due to poisoning and injuring his leg, it was very likely that the second prince wouldn’t have sat in that position.
Calculate the time, the prince’s leg injury on that scene seems to occurred in recent days.
How about save him?
Now that Jiang Hanyu has been on the line with the second prince, it would be interesting to think about it if Jiang Hanyu calculated alot and it was not the second prince who finally ascended the throne.
After making a decision, Jiang Mo no longer delayed. He stretched out the other hand, tore the clothes on Gu Zheng’s chest, and pressed his palms outwards.
The trail of black mist emerged from the place where they come into contact and spread through the air. These black mist is the hidden poison in Gu Zheng’s body and the main culprit of his coma.
The black mist soon cleared away and the poison had been cleaned up. Jiang Mo lost some energy again, then he withdrew his hand and sat cross-legged on the ground, waiting for Gu Zheng to wake up.
After a while, Gu Zheng woke up.
As soon as he opened his eyes, he faced Jiang Mo’s beautiful face, and Gu Zheng was dumbfounded.
Jiang Mo has just transformed this body and has not deliberately restrained his charm. Now this body can be considered as a mermaid. In his original world, the mermaid race has always been famous for their beauty, which has made countless people bow down.
In fact, Jiang Mo’s appearance has not changed much, but his temperament has changed dramatically. Now he is like a charm demon, man-eating goblin.
Gu Zheng just woke up and was attacked by another wave of beauty is a little dizzy. He even felt that he should be dreaming now.
Jiang Mo looked at him dumbfounded again and thought it was very funny. He couldn’t help but teasing him. stammering said, “young master, can you let me go first?”
Hearing this, Gu Zheng noticed that he was still holding the other person’s wrist. He lowered his gaze at the place where the two people were in contact. The man’s wrist was already turning blue.
It’s so delicate.
Gu Zheng thought, but he didn’t let go. He just diminish his strength and held it loosely.
“Who are you? Why are you here?”
Knowing that this was the Jiang family’s back mountain, he had no choice but to flee here to avoid being chased. This man appeared here very late, and high probability from the Jiang family. The Jiang family… known as the family on the ship of the second prince.
Who is this man? Will he be handed over to the second prince?
Jiang Mo saw that he didn’t intend to let go of himself and didn’t force him. He pointed to the cold spring not far away with another hand and said, “I’ve been therethe whole time. I just come and and see if you’re unconscious here ”
That’s similar to what he heard before he was unconscious.
Gu Zheng turned his eyes to the cold spring not far away. His pupils shrank. If he remembered correctly, he saw the legendary Mermaid there!
Never thought it would be like this. He is not the Jiang family, but the mermaid. But, how he came here?
Gu Zheng turned his eyes back and looked at the young man in front of him again. His facial features were exquisite, and his silky black hair was draped behind him. Maybe he just come out from the water, his hair was wet, and his clothes were only worn casually, revealing his delicate collarbones.
The young man looked at him, his eyes seemed to contain the stars in the sky, the corners of his eyes were slightly raised, his eyes were innocent, but he had his own temptation temperament.
Jiang Mo looked at Gu Zheng’s expression change several times and wanted to laugh. He was not afraid that Gu Zheng would recognize him, because his temperament was very different and his appearance was not really same as original body. Generally, he would not be recognized.
Suppressing the storm surge in his heart, Gu Zheng tried his best to ask in a calm voice, “are you the mermaid I saw?”
“Ah! You saw it!” Collect the smile from the bottom of his eyes, Jiang Mo looked at Gu Zheng in ‘shock’, his beautiful eyes were full of anxiety.
Seeing that the young man was frightened by his words, Gu Zheng comforted:
“Don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone about your existence.” It’s just that Gu Zheng has never comforted anyone since he was a child, and his tone is a bit dry.
“Thank you. You’re a good man.”
The young man eyes were shining. Gu Zheng couldn’t help but want to stretch out his hand and touch it.
Thinking so, he realized that he was still holding his wrist. Gu Zheng let go of his hand and saw the obvious bruises on the other party’s jade white wrist, feeling a little depressed.
“Does it hurt?”
Gu Zheng didn’t realize how gentle his tone is now. He gently pressed the youth’s injured wrist with his own hand, secretly regretting how he used so much strength and didn’t bring a bottle of wound medicine on him.
Completely forgot that he was chased by assassin before he fled here, and the young man before him was suspected by him not long ago.
