A girl with noble temperament, beautiful appearance and fox fur robe was standing in front of the eaves, stretching out her tender little hands to let the snowflakes fall into her palm. The girl was thin, and her face was as pale as snow.
The shadow in my memory merged with the girl in front of me!
Shiqi remembered that the Eldest Miss was not much older than him. He still remembered the first time he saw her; it was also such a snowy day.
He was at the corner, shivering with cold. Pedestrians in a hurry, no one stopped for him, he was already desperate! He felt that tomorrow he would turn into a hard corpse, and thrown into the donkey cart by the city guards, just like several of his other beggar companions.
Until a carriage passed by, and then came back slowly. The heavy curtain on the carriage was lifted and closed again. The coachman jumped out of the carriage, then lifted him up with one hand and said, “lucky boy!”
Even with the Crimson Devil Sword and the chance to become a top-rank master, his desire had not changed. That was a promise he made with all his heart. There were always some people who value commitment more than life.
“Your servant, Xinyue, has seen the eldest miss!”
Lan Yanlin stared at the snowflakes falling in the sky and asked, “Xinyue, what are you doing here?”
“The Grand Master asked me to bring Shiqi to be your guard!”
“Guard?” Lan Yanlin glanced at Shiqi.
Shiqi held his breath, and the muscles on his body were tightened together. Even facing Lan Yanming, he had never been so nervous. After so many years of hard work, it was for today! Would the eldest lady be surprised?
“Forget it, you take him back! Tell Big Brother that I appreciate his kindness. ” Lan Yanlin waved her hand and said, “There are grandma and the sisters here, I don’t need guards.”
Rejected? Shiqi never thought this would happen! If it was the him before, he might be helpless, but now … He took a deep breath and stood up and asked, “Miss, do you remember me?”
Lan Yanlin carefully looked at the tall and burly Shiqi and frowned slightly, “Do we know each other?”
“I am Shiqi!”
Lan Yanlin sounds familiar with this name, but she still couldn’t remember it.
Shiqi’s heart was as uncomfortable as being stabbed with a knife!
She turned her head and looked at an old woman in her fifties who was standing beside her with scarcely gray hair. The old woman thought for a moment and said, “It was more than ten years ago. It is normal for you to forget. I didn’t expect him to grow so big.”
Shiqi said excitedly, “Old lady still remembers!”
“Of course, I still remember that. I am not old enough to get confused!” the old lady said with a smile, “You took second place in the exam in recent years. The boy born as a domestic servant, is you?”
“Yes, it’s me!”
Lan Yanlin asked the grandma with some doubts, “Is he?”
“About ten years ago, you brought him back from the street to the “Lan family.”
“Oh, it’s you!” Lan Yanlin said suddenly. In fact, she couldn’t remember clearly, but only after grandma reminded her, she vaguely remembered that there was such a thing.
“Miss, did you remember?”
“I remember!” Lan Yanlin nodded.
Shiqi looked at her with some expectation and asked, “Then can I stay?”
“Why do you have to stay if I remember you?”
“Missy promised me before. When I pass the examination in the future, I will come to the Lan Family to be your guard!”
Lan Yanlin turned her gaze to the grandma again, and she obviously forgot. The grandma lowered her head and cleared her throat awkwardly and said, “I was not far from you at that time, Yan Lin, you did promise this!”
Then grandma added, “You talk so loudly, I was nearby … I didn’t intentionally eavesdrop.”
Emmm…… … This sentence feels a little bit to cover up. Lan Yanlin looked at Shiqi’s gaze. Anticipation and reluctant covered his forehead.
“Or just leave him, anyway, there is not much more difference to add one person here!” The grandma suggested, “However, there are some things that Lu Ya and the others are not easy to deal with. There should be more errand runners and we can’t let down the eldest son’s wishes.”
“All right!” Under the persuasion of the grandma, Lan Yanlin finally letting go.
Shiqi said excitedly, “Thank you, Miss, thank you, old lady!”
Even if the eldest lady had forgotten him? She just showed kindness at will, but to him, it was kindness as heavy as a mountain!
“Then you should obey grandma’s arrangement!” Lan Yanlin said as she entered the inner room with the help of the maids.
Seeing Lan Yanlin’s departure, Xinyue lowered her voice and said to grandma, “Grandma, Shiqi is highly valued by the eldest son. If he hadn’t insisted, the eldest son would never let him be a guard. He might have to leave for a few days in the future. Please be more generous.”
“Well, I understand!” Grandma was knowledgeable, she knew Shiqi’s potential, and values Shiqi more. “Don’t worry, the eldest lady won’t care.”
After Xinyue left, the grandma said to him, “Come with me!”
It coud be said that Lan Yanlin didn’t need anything here, so she could directly give the Lan family steward a list of errands, and he would obey to purchase and distribute.
As for the safety issue…If Miss Lan’s place was not safe, Shiqi’s presence would be of no help.
Occasionally go out, there will be a group of masters acting as guards. With the strength of Shiqi now, he could only be regarded as the ordinary standard of guards.
The more I look at it, the more I feel that I am a decoration!
His residence was in a small room next to the gate of the house. As a man, he didn’t need to think about entering the house. After tidying up the room a bit, Shiqi was lying on a hard wooden board. There was too much happening today, and he was a little tired.
The sword spirit, who had not spoken for a long time, said aloud, “Boy, now that your dream has come true, is there a feeling of loneliness and emptiness in your heart?”
“It may be a bit!”
“Do you feel that this eldest miss is different from what you remember?”
“A little, but people always change, just like me!” Shiqi shook his head and said, “For me, as long as she is the eldest miss, it is enough!”
“Since your first life goal has been achieved, do you want to establish another goal?” Chen Hao said, “I am afraid that you will lose your motivation and become the guard uncle …”
“You are just a little shrimp in the sea. If your eldest miss is really in danger … you can’t help!”
“Lord Sword Spirit, you can rest assured that I will continue to work hard. I will go to Chuan Gong Pavilion now!”
During the day, Xinyue has already told Shiqi about the location of Chuan Gong Pavilion, and with the help of the guard’s waist badge, Shiqi quickly found the Chuan Gong Pavilion.
Looking at the dark and chilly cave in front of him, and looking at the three powerful red characters of the “Chuan Gong Pavilion” on the big rock next to him, he asked in a low voice, “Lord Sword Spirit, why is the pavilion located underground?”
