If he died in the ocean, how was she going to go back for Ah Luo?
Gu Bailu looked at Qin Shou, and then Miyasi. “Whatever happens, don’t go down. Miyasi, if I don’t return, help me save my maid Ah Luo. Qin Shou, you’ll show him the way.”
Then, she jumped into the ocean like a mermaid.
Feng Qingtian couldn’t die. If he died, she wouldn’t be able to save Ah Luo, and if Ah Luo had an accident, she would collapse.
A wave came at her the moment she jumped in. Gu Bailu hurried to hold her breath and dove in.
It was much more peaceful under the surface.
Gu Bailu looked around, only to find no sign of Feng Qingtian.
She wondered if the waves had brought him somewhere far away.
She couldn’t imagine Feng Qingtian dying from drowning.
That would make him a joke of the whole world.
If it were any other time, it wouldn’t be a problem for her to swim in the ocean, but the waves today terrified her.
Gu Bailu swam around the boat and didn’t find Feng Qingtian.
Looking at the dark ocean bottom, she was too scared to proceed.
Suddenly, a giant wave surged up, and Gu Bailu couldn’t control her body at all.
She panicked. She had never encountered such a situation before. Nature was truly dreadful.
She tried to remain upright, only for the water to sweep over head.
In her next life, she would be a whale to conquer the ocean.
Gu Bailu closed her eyes in desperation. Even the strongest human could only yield before such natural power.
Right then, the ocean brightened up.
Gu Bailu opened her eyes, only to discover that she was inside a huge bubble and moving upward.
The water around her split apart to make way for her.
Was she saved?
She was drawn into slim arms, and she saw the most splendid face when she raised her eyes.
He hugged her so tightly that she could barely breathe.
“Feng Qingtian, are you alright?”
Gu Bailu didn’t know how to describe her feelings.
She was both happy that he was fine and bummed that she was actually worried about him.
He was too strong. Nature was nothing to him.
The thunderstorm was still raging, but Gu Bailu could clearly hear Feng Qingtian’s heartbeat.
His heart was pounding. Even his hands seemed to be shaking.
His face was covered by his wet hair, making it impossible for her to see his expression.
Feng Qingtian covered Gu Bailu’s face with his wet sleeve since it was still raining hard.
Feng Qingtian returned to the deck with Gu Bailu. Qin Shou said in delight, “My lord, you’re back.”
“Kneel,” Feng Qingtian said coldly.
Qin Shou quickly fell to his knees. “My lord, I shouldn’t have put Miss Gu in danger. I failed in my task.”
Feng Qingtian glared at him and carried Gu Bailu into the cabin.
Miyasi followed him. “How is Miss Gu?”
He had planned to jump into the ocean, too, but Qin Shou had held him back.
Qin Shou grinned at their backs as they went in.
Miyasi had wanted to save Miss Gu, but Qin Shou didn’t give the guy a chance. Miss Gu would certainly be fine with his lord there.
Would his lord ever know what he really wanted, if Qin Shou didn’t pull a trick like this?
