C19 – Go to the Toilet
Zuo Shaoqing carefully controlled his men’s strength, fearing that he might inadvertently harm his potential benefactor. Yet, Lu Zheng’s body bore numerous minor and major wounds—some recent, some old.
Zuo Shaoqing faced a conundrum as he reached Lu Zheng’s lower half. His trousers had already been removed, and his legs were unblemished. However, as he prepared to attend to the upper half, uncertainty crept in.
With gritted teeth, he told himself, “I’ve come this far; I shouldn’t falter now.” Under the pressure of the situation, Zuo Shaoqing removed the last piece of fabric covering Lu Zheng’s body, his breath quickening in response.
He made every effort not to let his gaze linger on the central area. He briskly tended to it and then donned the new underwear he had procured. Only then did he release a sigh of relief.
He hadn’t felt embarrassed when a servant bathed him, but now that his task was caring for Lu Zheng, he couldn’t help but feel as though he was taking advantage of the situation.
Lu Zheng observed the entire process in silence, extending his leg, raising his arm, treating Zuo Shaoqing as a personal attendant.
Once the wound was dressed, Zuo Shaoqing assisted him in reattiring. However, when Lu Zheng donned his clothing, it became evident that they were too small. Despite instructing Luo Xiaoliu to purchase garments according to Zuo Shaoyan’s measurements, it was apparent that this master’s physique was more imposing.
“Brother, please make do with it for now. Once you’re able to leave the bed in a few days, you can bring me some clothes.” Since it was a bed, the size mattered little.
Although Lu Zheng didn’t voice his thoughts, his faintly furrowed brows betrayed his discontent. Nonetheless, he didn’t make things difficult for Zuo Shaoqing, which improved Zuo Shaoqing’s impression of him.
Zuo Shaoqing’s decision to serve this lord diligently and make a positive impression didn’t equate to his willingness to become a servant.
After tidying up, Zuo Shaoqing found himself utterly exhausted, unable to stand upright. In his previous life, he hadn’t worked as strenuously as he had today. Serving someone was undoubtedly demanding.
“I want to go to the toilet!”
Toilet? How so?
Zuo Shaoqing’s eyes widened as he looked at the lower half of Lu Zheng in horror, “This… What should we do?” He had only thought of the first two, but he had forgotten that the last two were equally difficult.
Lu Zheng looked at him for half an incense’s time and confirmed that Zuo Shaoqing wouldn’t bring him a spittoon like attendant. Lu Zheng looked at him for half an incense’s time and confirmed that Zuo Shaoqing wouldn’t bring him a spittoon.
Zuo Shaoqing didn’t know how much pain he had to endure because even he himself suffered from reverse circulation. The man in front of him was definitely not as injured as he was at that time.
However, Lu Zheng only managed to stabilize his body after shaking twice. His originally bloodless face became even paler and beads of sweat appeared on his forehead.
Zuo Shaoqing didn’t have much time to think. He ran over to support the person and planned to put his thin arm under his armpit. Unfortunately, he wasn’t tall enough, so he could only wrap his arms around his waist to barely support half of his body weight.
Lu Zheng’s expression changed and he lowered his head. His deep gaze fell on Zuo Shaoqing’s face and he muttered: “So short!” Then he tiptoed slowly outside on one foot.
Zuo Shaoqing lowered his head and pretended that he didn’t hear anything. Otherwise, he wasn’t sure if he still had the stamina to continue this challenging task.
After exiting the house, he found himself in the wilderness. Lu Zheng was cautious. With the help of the moonlight, he scanned the surrounding and was surprised by the height of the hut. From here, he could vaguely see the small town at the foot of the mountain.
In the quiet night, the sound of flowing water was exceptionally clear. Zuo Shaoqing’s gaze wandered as he stared at a tree. His mind was filled with the scene he saw when he wiped the man’s body.
She had honey-colored skin, tight muscles, long legs, and a flat, hard lower abdomen … A familiar heat rose from inside Zuo Shaoqing’s body. He hatefully thought: He’s only thirteen years old now, isn’t it a little too early to think about this?
He still hadn’t realized why he would respond to a man’s body after his rebirth.
“Alright.” Wu steel tidied up the clothes with one hand and gently pinched Zuo Shaoqing’s earlobe.
His original intention was to remind Zuo Shaoqing that everything was over, but the temperature and feel of the touch made him pause for a moment. That soft and hot feeling was something he had never experienced before.
“Hello… You…” Zuo Shaoqing suddenly turned around with vigilance in his eyes. He did not forget the sexual orientation of this man. Could it be that he had a bad intention towards him?
“…Hot.” A gust of cold wind blew past, causing Zuo Shaoqing to sneeze.
When Zuo Shaoqing helped him back to the bed, he suddenly thought of a question, “Which hand did you use to touch me just now?”
Lu Zheng raised his only movable arm and waved it in front of his eyes.
He didn’t know if it was just Zuo Shaoqing’s imagination, but he actually saw a hint of a smile in the man’s eyes. Young Eunuch Lu’s face was as famous as his martial skills, and there was no one who could surpass him.
