" Music.." Xia Lian was completely drunk " I w..want some music..". Her face was now in a beautiful shade of drunken red.. As she was a bit tipsy, she was not able to drink the wine properly and the wine started to slowly trace her neck all the way from her lips..
" No more drinking.." Jun Moyin pulled away the cups from her hands. Just when she was about to grab the wine cup from his hands, a girl of about 15 years fully dressed in white stood before them with a Guqin in her hands.
" Masters, please allow me to play a song.." the girl performed a quick greeting and started to arrange the instrument on a low table.
Xia Lian turned her attention to the young girl.. She completely placed her attention on the girl before them.. Jun Moyin didn't understand why his sister-in-law is looking at the girl so intently..
' Alright, the girl is quite pretty.. Don't tell me that wine is making my sis-in-law muddleheaded.. Did she possibly take a liking to her..' Jun Moyin frowned..
Xia Lian noticed a hint of resentment and unwillingness in the girl's voice when she greeted them. That is the reason why Xia Lian is observing the girl closely..
Xia Lian was feeling a bit tipsy, but she didn't drink so much to get a hangover next day.. Also, the slight tipsiness disappeared as she found another interesting specimen..
The girl started to sing slowly while playing a soft tone..
'Since yesterday had to throw me and bolt,
Today has hurt my heart even more.
The autumn wild geese have a long wind for escort
As I face them from this villa, drinking my wine.
I am exalted to distant thought,
Aspiring to the sky and the bright moon.
But since water still flows, though we cut it with our swords,
And sorrows return, though we drown them with wine,
Since the world can in no way answer our craving,
I will loosen my hair tomorrow and take to a fishing boat.
' This is not a song.. It's a poem..' Xia Lian's lips curved up as she slowly walked towards the girl.
' Sis-in-law, haven't you flirted more than enough today.. You are not sparing even the musicians..' Jun Moyin gritted his teeth.
The girl sensed someone approaching her, so she raised her head and looked at Xia Lian in her eyes..
' Oh my! What is it I see there.. Disgust?' Xia Lian was amused on seeing the girl's eyes clearly displaying her disgust.. Is she disgusted about men?
Xia Lian frowned as it's a bad thing.. Everyone should respect others.. She is a feminist and her idea of feminism is that men and women should soar together.. They should not try to look down on the other gender or try to dominate them.. This applies to both men and women..
Xia Lian felt that this girl is clever and that she would be wasted away if she is left here.. So, she pondered for a while before speaking
" If you want to get out of this place, I will free you.." Xia Lian bent forward and spoke near the girl's ear " But, you should be willing to work under me."
Xia Lian was originally speaking like that so that other's couldn't hear them.. But, the position looked as if she is whispering sweet-nothings.. So, everyone around them blushed on seeing this scene..
She then looked into girl's eye waiting for an answer.. Both of their faces are only a few centimetres away and Jun Moyin tilted his head not willing to torment his poor heart anymore..
" I will never work for a man.." the girl evenly replied..
" Then who are you working for now.." Xia Lian smirked at the girl's arrogance and sure enough the girl's face turned pale..
" You can decide by tomorrow. I will send one of my men tomorrow and if you are willing to work under me, I will free you.." Xia Lian looked into the girl's eyes and spoke slowly " Also, who told you that I am a man.."
The girl widened her eyes as she was not able to believe that the young man before her is actually a girl..
" Keep it a secret..." Xia Lian winked at the girl.
" Little Li.." at this moment Xia Lian heard an angry roar making her close her ears. Before, she could scold that person, she felt a force on her hands following which she landed in a warm embrace..
