- What to Do When You're the Villain and the Female Lead Likes You
- Chapter 6 - The Promising Youth, He Yunxiao
He Yunxiao stood in for Jiang Wuyou, resting his hand on her shoulder, his eyes constantly glancing downstairs.
Damn it! How did Chu Fan end up blocked by the railing!
Would you move already!
Move god damn it!
Shit, where’s Miss Du?
Alright, the both of them are now in my sight, I can check their favorability.
【Du Yinyun’s Favorability towards Chu Fan is 70】
He Yunxiao almost spat out a mouthful of old blood.
The protagonist is truly terrifying, huh!
They’ve only exchanged two glances, and the favorability is already this high? I’ve been busy for half a day, and I only have 55.
【Du Yinyun’s Favorability changes from 55 to 45】
What’s going on? Why did it decrease again?
He Yunxiao happily massaged Sister Jiang’s fragrant shoulder and then noticed that Du Huakui, who was sitting in front to the side, turned around to look at him.
In her eyes, there was some confusion and disgust.
“Master He, please let go quickly,” said the girl who had been standing by, holding the gong.
“Why?” He Yunxiao was completely puzzled.
Jiang Wuyou stood up with a “whoosh,” her fists clenched, her beautiful eyes furious.
At this moment, He Yunxiao’s mind was completely occupied by the famous nursery rhyme “Grandma’s Bridge”…
Rocking and rocking, all the way to Grandma’s Bridge…
He wasn’t panicked at all; he even continued his insolent banter.
“Someone like Sister Jiang, even when she’s angry, looks very attractive.”
【Jiang Wuyou’s Favorability changes from 83 to 85】
Although the favorability increased, Jiang Wuyou clearly didn’t intend to let He Yunxiao off the hook.
“Do you know what you’re doing?” She said sternly.
Jiang Wuyou’s tone made the several girls present skip a beat.
They knew that although He Yunxiao’s behavior was wild and disrespectful, disregarding social ranks, he was a legitimate Marquis’s son with an inherited title. It was different from them, who weren’t even considered commoners.
In simple terms, He Yunxiao initiated this incident, but looking back, at most, he might face restrictions. However, for those “lower class” “servants” like them, they would face execution as a punishment.
Backwardness is something unreasonable.
So when Jiang Wuyou sternly rebuked He Yunxiao, Du Yinyun’s small hand had already clenched her clothes nervously.
She was ready, that when He Yunxiao became furious due to the rebuke and scolding, she would kneel down and intercede for Jiang Wuyou.
But what surprised everyone was that this highly skilled, arrogant, insolent Marquis’s son was actually scolded without any sign of anger. Instead, he was coaxing his sister Jiang in a kind and gentle manner.
He Yunxiao had a confused expression from being scolded.
He had absolutely no idea why he was scolded. His character wasn’t that of a well-behaved gentleman either. If someone had scolded him for no reason in his past life, he would have retorted immediately.
Everyone only lives once, no one is nobler than anyone else, so why should I tolerate your temper?
But now, watching Jiang Wuyou, He Yunxiao couldn’t muster any anger at all.
First, Jiang Wuyou’s angry appearance was also very beautiful, pleasing to the eye. Then there was the matter of Jiang Wuyou’s high favorability of 85.
It’s worth noting that once favorability reaches 80, the system issues strategy rewards.
Ignoring the “Poison Resistance Increase” that helps effectively counter Chu Xiaoxiao’s “Soul-Devouring Pill,” just focusing on the significance of the “successful strategy” itself.
“Successful strategy” implies that only I remain in Jiang Wuyou’s heart.
From this point on, favorability will only rise and not fall.
Given this premise, only a scoundrel would get angry at a girl who only has thoughts of you, wants to treat you well, and completely trusts you.
He Yunxiao admitted he wasn’t a scoundrel; not only that, he was a textbook example of a promising youth.
He has a nice broad chest, slender waist, and muscular long legs.
“Do you even know what you’re doing?” Jiang Wuyou said sternly.
He Yunxiao blinked innocently and said frankly, “Massaging sister’s shoulders.”
“You’re a Marquis’s son, a once-in-a-lifetime figure. How can you turn around and serve a mere dancer?” Jiang Wuyou sighed and said, her voice slightly softer when she mentioned “dancer.”
This statement caused Du Yinyun and several red-card girls present to lower their heads slightly. They were well aware that although the courtesans seemed popular and elevated, in reality, very few of the men who were skilled in sweet words truly considered them seriously.
In the eyes of those men, playing with courtesans was just a capital to boast about.
The somber mood didn’t bother Jiang Wuyou for long. After a brief moment of dejection, she regained her composure and spoke seriously, “Moreover, the current situation in the court is unstable, and it’s not easy for Marquis Wuqing to maintain the family business. With Yinyun’s situation at hand, as a Marquis’s son, you should act responsibly.”
Hearing Jiang Wuyou’s words, He Yunxiao finally understood why everyone was surprised and why Jiang Wuyou was angry.
Everyone was surprised that the Marquis’s son was trying to please a courtesan, while Jiang Wuyou was worried about his frivolous behavior and the rumors it might create.
As a result, he pulled Jiang Wuyou and had her sit among the standing people like a queen. Then, he squatted on the ground, allowing Jiang Wuyou to look down on him.
This action is common in modern times, but in ancient times, it was truly earth-shattering.
Only the Emperor and parents could receive such an honor.
Even someone as indifferent as Du Yinyun was startled by He Yunxiao’s gesture. She looked around nervously, fortunately, they were on the second floor, and due to the blocked view, ordinary people couldn’t see what was happening.
He Yunxiao ignored everyone else and stared at Jiang Wuyou’s eyes.
“Here, there are no marquises and courtesans, only men and women. Women are made of water, men are made of clay. When I see Sister, I feel refreshed; when I see others, I feel muddled and unpleasant.”
【Jiang Wuyou’s Favorability changes from 85 to 90】
【Strategy reward “Poison Resistance Increase” strengthened】
【Du Yinyun’s Favorability changes from 45 to 60】
He Yunxiao was now sincerely grateful for the nine years of compulsory education; without it, even picking up girls would be a challenge!
Even the girls from the Spring Breeze Tower had never heard such sweet words.
Jiang Wuyou blushed as if she were intoxicated by alcohol.
She quickly pulled He Yunxiao up.
“None of this ‘men and women’ talk. I told you to behave, you rascal. Your stubbornness remains unchanged, and all you can do is talk nonsense!”
He Yunxiao allowed Jiang Wuyou to pull him up and took the opportunity to add fuel to the fire.
“If hearing it makes Sister happy, then even if I’m a rotten person, it’s worth it.”
Jiang Wuyou wanted to put on a serious face, but the blush on her cheeks prevented her from doing so.
In her speech, it seemed more like she was playing around with He Yunxiao.
“Hmph~, not happy.”
Du Yinyun stood on the side silently watching.
At this point, she had to admit that she was somewhat envious of Jiang Wuyou.
Although He Yunxiao was indulgent, he was not without merits. At the very least, his martial arts were not weak. Despite his somewhat indulgent personality, he wasn’t as indiscriminate and troublesome as the typical delinquents.
At most, he was a bit lustful.
But that couldn’t be counted as a flaw. For nobles, having numerous branches and leaves is far more important than unwavering loyalty. Moreover, observing his attitude towards Jiang Wuyou, he might be a romantic type.
Setting aside prejudices, bending down and crouching down, all to make a courtesan smile.
This kind of situation, in the past, Du Yinyun wouldn’t even have dared to think about, let alone hearing about it.
If only I could have a man like that…
Du Yinyun rubbed her temples and quickly abandoned her daydreaming.
She wasn’t an ignorant child; how could she not know of the concept of love? Not to mention the courtesan’s perspective, even for those young ladies from prestigious families, even princesses and noblewomen, love was something distant and unattainable.
If my father were not an obstacle, then considering my current age, I’m afraid he might have already promised me to a young talent.
A young talent? Hm… Does He Yunxiao count as one? Or perhaps Chu Fan?
Unbeknownst to herself, Du Yinyun had quietly assigned the same weight to the two individuals who were originally incomparable in her heart.
【Du Yinyun’s Favorability changes from 60 to 61】
【Du Yinyun’s Favorability changes from 61 to 62】
A gentle call brought Du Yinyun back to reality.
Looking up, a handsome and sunny face filled her view. Its owner, He Yunxiao, was standing close by.
【Du Yinyun’s Favorability changes from 64 to 66】
This face could make anyone’s mouth go dry.
“Master He? Why are you looking for me?”
A smile tugged at the corner of He Yunxiao’s mouth as he politely bowed, “Miss Du, the martial competition below has been delayed for quite a while. Shall we begin?”
Du Yinyun’s mind felt a bit blank, and without much thought, she nodded.
