Qian Qian and Ye Hua continued to kiss as people around them started to comment about their indecent behavior. Ye Hua ended the kiss first and saw Qian Qian still had her eyes closed. Her cheeks were flushed with color as she slowly opened her eyes. Her eyelashes fluttered in surprise and her expression was one of confusion. She stared at Ye Hua and suddenly dropped her gaze to the table.
Qian Qian stayed silent and wouldn’t meet his eyes. Ye Hua put his hand on top of her’s and felt her shaking slightly. Qian Qian didn’t pull her hand away but her cheeks got even rosier than when they were kissing. She lifted her gaze to his for a brief moment before staring at the table again. Qian Qian was slowing catching her breath.
Ye Hua’s kiss had taken her breath away.
Qian Qian looked towards the storytellers and abruptly got up to leave. Qian Qian didn’t look at Ye Hua as she nervously tried to figure out where the exit was.
When Ye Hua asked if she was alright, Qian Qian just let out a false chuckle and complained about suddenly being tired. Qian Qian told Ye Hua she needed to rest and wanted to go back home. Ye Hua got up and they returned back to Qing Qiu as she requested.
As they were parting ways, Qian Qian quickly looked at Ye Hua before furrowing her eyebrows confusedly and running inside her fox den.
When Bai Qian returned back into her fox den, she paced back and forth in her room. The kiss she shared with Ye Hua didn’t feel like a kiss from a homosexual man. She felt something inside her that Bai Qian couldn’t put into words. There was a level of passion in Ye Hua’s kiss that she’d only experienced with Mo Yuan and yet, this was different.
Ye Hua’s kiss was more intense? More passionate? Ye Hua’s kiss made her body feel as if there were butterflies in her stomach.
Bai Qian continued to pace until her fourth brother Bai Zhen finally yelled at her.
“Xiao Wu! All I can hear is you pacing back and forth! Do you realize how annoying that is!? What is going on in your head that’s making you disturb me with that nonstop pacing?” Bai Zhen was red in the face. It was rare for Bai Zhen to raise his voice to his baby sister.
Bai Qian came out of her room and pulled her brother by the sleeve of his light blue robe back into her room. Bai Qian motioned for Bai Zhen to sit on her bed beside her. Xiao Wu got very close to Bai Zhen and whispered, “I’m going to tell you a secret but you must swear not to tell anyone else or you will be cursed for eternity.” Xiao Wu looked towards the opening to her room to make sure nobody else was around and whispered, “Ye Hua is homosexual.”
Bai Zhen looked stunned, “What are you talking about!?”
Xiao Wu whispered, “He fell in love with me when I was Si Yin, the man. Ye Hua prefers men.”
Bai Zhen jumped up and yelled, “You must not marry him then! You can’t live your whole life without physical contact! It goes against our fox nature!” Bai Zhen was now pacing in front of Xiao Wu and said, “You must tell our father to find a different husband for you. What about Mo Yuan? Is he truly not interested in your affections towards him? You can not marry Ye Hua.”
Xiao Wu’s lips flattened into a line when she replied, “I’m marrying Ye Hua!”
Bai Zhen’s eyes flew open and he shook his head at her.
“When I met Ye Hua as Si Yin, I realized how lonely Ye Hua is. He has nobody on his side. Ye Hua hasn’t had a friend before me. His parents are nothing like ours. Ye Hua is alone. All Ye Hua has is pressure to be perfect and he’s always being compared to Shifu, God of War. Even Shifu and Ye Hua aren’t close. I’m all Ye Hua has. Ye Hua needs me.” Xiao Wu continued, “I love Shifu and he has returned my affections but Shifu wants me, he doesn’t need me as Ye Hua does. Do you understand?”
Bai Zhen was touched by his sister’s sacrifice and loyalty to Ye Hua. If what she was telling him was the truth, Ye Hua was indeed quite alone. Bai Zhen shook his head and asked, “So this your final resolve. Won’t you change your mind? What if Mo Yuan wants to marry you, then what will you do?”
“I can’t betray Ye Hua. Shifu had me for thousands of years but he waited until I left to reveal his feelings for me….. I don’t know what to feel anymore,” Xiao Wu sighed deeply when she realized what she had just said with her own lips. She had just said Mo Yuan was too late. Xiao Wu closed her eyes as they began to fill with tears. “I know what I must do but I can’t let go of Shifu. I still want him. Even now I want to go to him but Shifu accused me of being unfaithful to him with Ye Hua,” Xiao Wu said, now crying.
“But what’s confusing me the most is today, I kissed Ye Hua and it felt…..it took my breath away. I shouldn’t feel that for someone who will never touch me. I don’t want to make Ye Hua do things that go against his will,” Xiao Wu said, as tears fell down her face.
Bai Zhen hugged his baby sister. She had the heart of a baby bird. Xiao Wu’s heart was soft, sweet and innocent. Xiao Wu was Bai Zhen’s weak spot. He didn’t know what to say to comfort Xiao Wu so he held her as she cried. Bai Zhen sighed and said, “You must confirm your feelings, Xiao Wu. You must search your heart and figure out what you feel inside.” Bai Zhen tapped Xiao Wu’s heart gently and said, “I will support whomever you choose. I’ll always be on your side.
Bai Zhen hugged his crying sister tighter and soothed Xiao Wu’s baby bird-like heart.
Mo Yuan did everything to see Seventeen again. He went to her fox den to be told that she was with Ye Hua in the mortal realm. Mo Yuan left her love notes and didn’t receive a reply. Seventeen’s stubbornness was unbeatable. Once she’d decided on something nothing could change her mind.
During this time Mo Yuan came to realize just how strongly he felt towards Seventeen. When Mo Yuan heard she was with Ye Hua, he felt jealousy. When she didn’t respond to his messages, he felt nervous and afraid that he had lost her. Mo Yuan was truly beside himself with fear that she was not coming back to him. Mo Yuan couldn’t focus on anything else and thought about his little Seventeen constantly.
One night when Mo Yuan retired to his room, he found Seventeen asleep on his bed. She looked like a child curled up on his bed. Her sweet peach blossom scent filled his room. Mo Yuan changed, laid next to her and just watched her sleep before falling asleep himself.
Mo Yuan was awoken from his deep sleep when he felt the most amazing sensation on his manhood. When he opened his eyes, he saw a naked Seventeen with him in her mouth. He felt her lips, tongue, and mouth consuming him as he groaned from the intensity of pleasure he was experiencing. He was about to hit his peak and tried to pull her up to him but she didn’t budge. She continued to suck on him until he climaxed in her mouth.
After Mo Yuan’s release, he pulled her up and started to kiss her nude body. He caressed, touched and licked her perfect body. He touched her down below. He stroked, rubbed, and touched her flower. Mo Yuan slid a finger inside her wet core as Seventeen whimpered and cried from her pleasure. Mo Yuan was struggling to hold himself back. Mo Yuan gently slid his finger in and out of Seventeen while sucking on her breasts. She reached down and grabbed his erect sword and moved her hand up and down on his thickness bringing Mo Yuan to climax again as Seventeen hit her peak.
Afterward, she didn’t say a word to Mo Yuan. Mo Yuan saw tears running down her face as she laid beside him with her eyes closed. Mo Yuan held Seventeen closely.
“I haven’t been unfaithful to you Shifu. I promise.” Seventeen cried.
“I know. I’m sorry for yelling at you. Thank you for coming back to me,” Mo Yuan replied softly. “Seventeen, you can’t marry Ye Hua if you want to be with me and I only said those things about marrying someone mature because I was foolish.”
It had been Mo Yuan who mislead and encouraged Seventeen to marry Ye Hua, so he accepted some of the blame for creating this chaos. Now that he knew Ye Hua was homosexual, this was indeed a tangled matter that intertwined the three of them.
“Shifu, I love Ye Hua in the way one would love their younger brother. I merely want to protect and give Ye Hua an ally. He’s homosexual and alone. How can I cancel the wedding now, knowing that I’m the only friend Ye Hua has? If I turn my back on him, he was being crushed.” Seventeen was still crying.
Mo Yuan continued to hold her and said, “It’s my fault that I took so long to realize my feelings for you. Let’s think about a way to resolve the complicated matter but are you sure you feel nothing for Ye Hua but sisterly love? You are willing to marry him knowing he will never touch you?”
Bai Qian thought about the kiss she shared with Ye Hua earlier in the afternoon and decided what she felt was due to her longing for Mo Yuan. Ye Hua and Mo Yuan were identical twins, it would be normal to feel a little something, no?
Seventeen nodded and replied, “Yes, I feel nothing but a love a sister would have towards her younger brother. Ye Hua is 90,000 years younger than me. He needs me. Why can’t I come to you if Ye Hua’s and my marriage is just in formalities? If you’re the only one I’m intimate with, then how is that adultery?”
Mo Yuan now realized just how complicated this situation was and if what she was telling him was the truth, then Ye Hua was truly in need of protection. Mo Yuan knew Heavenly Lord well enough to know Ye Hua’s future wouldn’t be easy.
