Stealing the Yuri Protagonist Harem (Xianxia) - Chapter 50
The charming face of Bai Xiaoyao turned as red as a burning fire.
Initially, when she saw the memory of her senior brother using his spiritual power to make her fall into a coma, she thought that the vague images she faintly saw afterward were just her imagination while unconscious…
But as she looked at her bare feet now and glanced at the neatly arranged shoes and socks by the bed, the young girl suddenly realized something.
(That senior brother… could it be true after all…)
At this moment, the usually unpredictable demoness’s heart was beating intensely.
After becoming the Demon Sect Holy Maiden, she felt her breathing becoming erratic for the first time, her chest rising and falling dramatically.
(N-No, that’s not right. After all, it’s him… Even if he happened to help me remove my shoes and socks, it doesn’t necessarily mean that all those images were real…)
Her senior brother may be a bit dense at times, but he occasionally showed thoughtfulness. Removing her shoes and socks could be explained without any special intentions, right?
He probably just did it calmly, like usual, without batting an eye, then covered her with the blanket, right?
Thinking about her senior brother’s usual behavior, Bai Xiaoyao relaxed slightly.
Speaking of which, it was the first time she had been seen barefoot by a man of a similar age…
Moreover, that person was her senior brother. Thinking about it this way, she became a bit confused, even imagining different reactions from her senior brother than usual.
In any case, she couldn’t come to a conclusion yet.
Bai Xiaoyao took a deep breath.
Still feeling a bit flustered, she scanned the room once again, comparing it with her vague memories from the previous night.
“Hmm? What’s this?”
Bai Xiaoyao quickly noticed something new in the room.
She calmed her thoughts slightly using her cultivation technique and looked at the object that appeared.
It was a small box, quietly sitting on the table, pressing down on a page of ink-stained paper.
(Is this something my senior brother left for me to see?)
Bai Xiaoyao thoughtfully released a strand of spiritual energy from her fingertips, wrapping up the items on the table and bringing them into her hands.
Setting the small box aside for a moment, she focused her attention on the paper with its crooked handwriting.
After inwardly lamenting her senior brother’s handwriting, the young girl began to read it carefully.
Firstly, it was indeed a letter left by her senior brother for her. Presumably, he wanted her to understand the situation after waking up, so as not to be too confused.
“Indeed… My senior brother noticed my abnormality last night, but unfortunately, he couldn’t catch the culprit behind it during the investigation…”
As she read the information left by her senior brother on the letter, Bai Xiaoyao’s mind became active.
Who could be the mastermind? Was it the person her senior brother had pursued at the Red Blossom Pavilion before?
In the letter, her senior brother also wrote down some speculations, but they were just possibilities without any substantial evidence to confirm who was behind it.
If Bai Xiaoyao had more clues, she might be able to reason a bit, but she had no idea at the moment.
She even felt that she had remained awake all night until she woke up just now, realizing how abnormal she had been at that time.
Thinking about her own desperate desire for her senior brother, a blush involuntarily appeared on Bai Xiaoyao’s face, despite her efforts to remain calm.
“My senior brother has already started investigating this… He told me not to worry too much, but to remain cautious and prevent the culprit from taking advantage.”
Feeling her senior brother’s concern through his untidy handwriting, Bai Xiaoyao’s lips gently curved.
But what could be the purpose of the mastermind behind this?
What benefits did they gain from making her tempt her senior brother?
(Maybe their purpose isn’t here… Is this a tactic to avert my senior brother’s attention from something important?)
If the intention was to draw her senior brother’s attention to her abnormality, then this matter wasn’t so simple. The other party must have already set up some arrangements.
She would discuss this matter thoroughly with her senior brother when he returned.
Bai Xiaoyao continued reading the remaining contents of the letter, her curiosity piqued.
Hmm… the box contains the gift that my senior brother promised me… Why did he write such a lengthy preamble? Is the gift really that mysterious?
But it seems like my senior brother put a lot of thought into it…
(Ah, finally, he’s starting to explain the content of the gift.)
The enchanting maiden read on with interest, but the following content left her slightly dazed.
“A specially made… pair of silk stockings?”
As she looked at the words on the letter, the previously blurry images in her mind became clearer.
Her exposed feet shrank slightly in the open air, pressing closely together.
The paper in her hand slipped away unnoticed, falling to the ground.
Even if Bai Xiaoyao was slow to realize, at this moment, she became aware that the images she faintly saw during her unconsciousness were all actual events.
She couldn’t find any more excuses for her senior brother.
It was true that her senior brother had removed her shoes and socks, and it was true that he had stared blankly at her bare feet. He was not measuring something else but rather the size and measurements of her legs and feet…
All of that was for the sake of preparing this special gift for her.
An inexplicable sense of embarrassment welled up from within her.
Recalling the expression her senior brother had at that moment in the images she saw, Bai Xiaoyao clearly felt something different.
Although she had already accepted the fact that her senior brother had seen her barefoot when he removed her shoes and socks, that was based on the assumption that her senior brother was still the emotionless senior brother she had imagined.
But if the images in her mind were real, then her senior brother at that time was not the emotionless rock headed figure she thought he was!
As one of her generation’s most enchanting maiden who was well-versed in understanding people’s hearts, Bai Xiaoyao was certain that her senior brother, in the images, showed a hint of a different and distinct emotion when he saw her bare feet under the shoes and socks.
And his blank stare was too obvious.
Furthermore, even if her senior brother only wanted to make silk stockings for her, he only needed to visually assess her measurements with the calculation ability of a Golden Core cultivator once, without the need for those repetitive and seemingly useless measurements.
In the end, why did her senior brother think of giving her a pair of special silk stockings?
A somewhat immature but heart-pounding speculation emerged in the enchanting maiden’s mind.
She instinctively reached for the small box she had placed aside.
Gently opening it, she touched the contents inside.
A peculiar sensation flowed through her fingers.
Hmm, it’s very smooth.
(Is this… really silk stockings?)
As her senior brother mentioned in the letter, the material of this item is extremely unique. It seems like silk, but there are some subtle differences when touched.
Bai Xiaoyao’s gaze shifted to the ground.
She glanced at the last few lines of text on the fallen letter.
It seemed like her senior brother knew that what was inside the box was something she had never encountered before, so he provided a quite detailed explanation of it.
Especially the part about how to wear it.
In addition, it also explained its other values.
For example, it mentioned that during the production process, a substance called “Heavenly Fortune Crystal” was incorporated, which, although a mundane material, could subtly enhance one’s luck.
It was a rare treasure even in her senior brother’s collection.
The enchanting maiden held the special black silk item, named “Black Silk” by her senior brother, in her hand. As she felt its unique texture, she appeared somewhat hesitant.
Should she give it a try?
For some reason, her mind was even more confused now than before.
No, she was the Holy Maiden of the Demon Sect, a world renowned enchanting maiden. How could she be swayed by such matters?
So, here’s the question…
As herself, a peerless enchanting maiden, what action would she take in this situation?
