1252 Feel Free To Take Advantage Of Him

Seeing Chu Jiu go quiet, Ling Lihua walked toward them. “You’re incredible, Chu Jiu. I can’t believe you carried Lu Tingchen so easily!” She patted Lu Tingchen’s muscular shoulder, then squeezed his toned arm with a sigh. “I don’t think I can carry this big guy at all.”

Lu Tingchen immediately stiffened, and his handsome face darkened.

Ling Lihua ignored him and said to Chu Jiu meaningfully, “Chen carried you when you fainted, so I initially thought he was taking advantage of you, but it seems that I was wrong. Apparently, you’ve already taken advantage of him long ago.”

Lu Tingchen, “…”

The absurdity of her logic flustered Chu Jiu, and her pale face grew pink from panic and embarrassment.

“Madam, this is all a misunderstanding. I-I didn’t take advantage of the Heir Presumptive…”

She trailed off awkwardly, her cheeks flushed.

If she had known that things would turn out this way, she would have kept herself from interfering, even if Zhu Yu had pressed a knife to her neck and threatened her.

Great—now the incident had escalated into this huge misunderstanding!

Lu Tingchen, on the other hand, was lost in thought as he gazed at her agitated and mortified expression.

Chu Jiu was usually so cold—he never knew she could look this abashed, too.

Ling Lihua also found her rather adorable at this moment.

She brushed a hand across her burning cheek. “I was just joking; don’t take it so seriously. But even if you did take advantage of him, it doesn’t matter. This wooden-headed boy’s already twenty, but he’s never even held a girl’s hand! If you’re interested, feel free to take advantage of him. We don’t mind.”

Chu Jiu, “…”

Madam just made her sound like a pervert who loved taking advantage of Lu Tingchen.

She glanced at Lu Tingchen sheepishly.

Lu Tingchen immediately snapped out of his reverie when he heard his mother’s words.

He did not understand why his mother had to say such things in front of Chu Jiu.

Did she expect him to be a womanizer or something?


He cast a furtive look at Chu Jiu.

Letting her take advantage of him?

He did not seem to resent the idea that much.

The question was—would the woman dare to do it?

He rose to his feet and gave Chu Jiu a nonchalant glance. “I just prefer quality over quantity. It’s not like what my mother implied—I’m not into men, and I don’t have any weird preferences.” He then looked at Ling Lihua. “I’ll leave her to you, then. I have military affairs to handle, so I’ll be going first.”

Chu Jiu furrowed her brow.

Why did he have to look at her while saying all that?

A hint of suspicion arose in her heart.

Ling Lihua struggled to stifle her laughter as she watched her son’s tall and broad figure exit the tent.

Had her son fallen for this young woman?

Keeping her thoughts to herself, she sat down calmly beside Chu Jiu and studied her carefully for the first time.

During the time Chu Jiu was with Weiwei, Ling Lihua’s impression of her had always been that of a valiant young woman—even more courageous than a man—but she was also rather cold and unapproachable.

However, now that she was ill and weak, she seemed more gentle and demure.

Upon close examination, Ling Lihua discovered how delicate her facial features were. She was far from unattractive; her beauty had merely been concealed by the lack of care for her appearance and her tanned skin.

If she dolled herself up, she could be a real looker, too.

Ling Lihua could not help mulling over what she had heard Chu Jiu say to Chen when she had walked in just now.

No wonder Chen was not in a hurry to get married—perhaps his heart had already been captured by this girl without him knowing it.

The more she thought about it, the likelier it seemed to her.

“Madam?” Feeling a little creeped out by her intense stare, Chu Jiu could not help calling out to her.

“Huh?” Ling Lihua came back to her senses and beamed at Chu Jiu, feeling more pleased the more she looked at her.

She placed her fingers on Chu Jiu’s wrist and pretended to take her pulse, but her mind started to wander.

Chu Jiu and Chen?

Haha, why had she not realized it before?

They were clearly a great match!
