Chapter 169: The Fairy Tale World

    Ge Xiu’s head emerged out of the water.

    He stretched out his hand and swept back the soaked hair on his forehead. The light golden eyelashes were moist with water, drooping slightly in strands, the water droplets fell from the tip of the eyelashes, leaving light water marks down his face.

    The sunlight above his head was intercepted by the canopy and fell in patterns on the water, making it seen flowing broken gold.

    Ge Xiu rested his arms on the shore and lazily half-closed his eyes.

    From the day he said that, although food, gifts and books were still being delivered, the stupid dragon didn’t appear in front of him in two or three days, not returning to the cave even once— it was almost the same as what happened in the beginning.

    However, he had no nightmares while sleeping during this period, which meant that the other party must be near the cave at night.

    Ge Xiu wasn’t sure what the single-celled magical creature was thinking, so he let him go.

    The breeze blew through the bushes, overlapping rustling came to his ears.

    He lifted his eyelids slightly and his eyes swept across the dense trees beside him unnoticeably.

    In addition, the dragon’s hiding methods were really too clumsy.

    No matter what time, Ge Xiu was always able to accurately catch the other’s secretly observing eyes.

    ——Nevermind the previous times.

    Peeking at him bathing was really overkill.

    Ge Xiu raised his voice coldly: “Have you seen enough?”

    The rustling sound in the bushes suddenly disappeared and there was no sound for a long time.

    According to the shy personality of that dragon, it could be estimated that he really left this time.

    Ge Xiu casually looked away and yawned.

    He rested his forehead on his arms, a little drowsy— during this time, he flipped through the books with almost no logic day and night, trying to discern clear clues from them, but it only made his thoughts more confused, not helping in any way.

    As he was drifting to sleep, he suddenly heard a splash behind him and the slight ripples on the surface of the water swayed over, causing a burst of itching.

    Ge Xiu was startled awake and his drowsiness disappeared immediately.

    He abruptly turned his head to look behind him, then a tall shadow suddenly pressed down.

    The man’s hot chest was pressed tightly against his back, his skin was taut and moist as it fit closely to him in an instant.

    Ge Xiu froze.

    The giant dragon lowered his head, resting his chin on his neck, and rubbed against him resembling a small animal and said in a low and hoarse voice,

    “Marry me.”

    Ge Xiu was stunned for a moment, then quickly calmed down, narrowing his eyes slightly: “…Have you lost your memory?”

    Otherwise, how could he have completely forgotten what he said two days ago so quickly.

    The dragon’s face heated up slightly and he coughed lightly: “I’ve been on the mainland for the past two days…”

    The tip of the cold tail sneaked out from under the water, wrapping around the youth’s waist little by little and slowly tightened: “Actually, men and men can also do it.”

    Ge Xiu: “…?”

    ——Hold on?

    Can do what?

    His mind went blank.

    “I learned it.” The dragon showed off as if offering a treasure: “If you don’t believe me, you can try it.”

    There was a slightly itchy cold touch on his waist.

    Ge Xiu didn’t respond, but subconsciously stretched out his hand into the water, and precisely caught the tip of the naughty tail in his hand.

    Being held by the tip of the sensitive tail, the dragon’s chest trembled slightly, and a hoarse and syrupy syllable came out of his nasal cavity, as if an exclaim or a sigh as the scorching air flow sprayed on the young man’s snow-white shoulders and neck.

    Ge Xiu’s hand trembled as if being scorched and he hurriedly threw the tip of the tail back into the pool, causing a splash of water.

    ——After a brief moment, his mind regained his clarity again.

    Ge Xiu turned around suddenly, flexibly got rid of the opponent’s shackles, and quickly distanced himself from him.

    He gritted his teeth and said:


    The giant dragon looked at him innocently, with a pair of golden-red vertical pupils that were deep and bewitching: “What’s wrong?”

    Ge Xiu took a deep breath and calmed himself down from the turbulent mood due to the excessive shock, his tone was stiff as he said coldly:

    “Stay away from me.”

    The dragon felt aggrieved: “Why?”

    He continued moving towards Ge Xiu.

    Ge Xiu suddenly raised his voice: “Don’t come over!”

    The dragon stopped obediently.

    Ge Xiu took a few deep breaths, raised his hand and pinched his aching brows.

    It took him a few seconds to organize his words, and then he raised his head again, looked at the tall man not far away, and asked word by word:

    “You…why do you like me?”

    His blue eyes darkened slightly and some complicated emotions surged slightly, but most of them were genuine confusion.

    Ge Xiu wanted to ask this question a long time ago.

    No matter how many worlds he had been through, the other would always appear by his side without wavering. He obviously remembered nothing, but he kept approaching him persistently again and again, without even asking to reciprocate or a response, standing in protective posture in front of him over and over again.

    Why exactly?

    Ge Xiu studied the other party’s face probingly, trying to find a clue from his expression.

    The dragon frowned slightly.

    After seriously thinking for a few seconds, he looked up at the other and then said,

    “I fell in love with you the first time I saw you. Your hair is brighter and purer than any golden coin I’ve seen before and the thing we dragons love the most is gold, your hair shines above anything in my collection.” He paused, frowning in confusion: “But, after you cut it off, I didn’t think you were in any way less beautiful than before.”

    Your eyes are like the most beautiful sapphires in the world, even the color of the sky is incomparable.”

    The dragon continued:

    “But, if your eyes were black, I think it would be equally beautiful.”

    His eyelashes drooped slightly and a pair of golden-red eyes stared deeply at Ge Xiu, as he slowly took a step forward:

    “Every evil dragon needs a princess, this is every dragon’s mission.”

    “I am not a princess.” Ge Xiu said, “I am a man.”

    “Yes.” The dragon thought for a while, and then continued: “But it doesn’t matter, I am willing to be a dragon without a princess.”

    Ge Xiu avoided his gaze, not looking into the other’s eyes.

    The inextricable emotion in those eyes was as hot as magma, making him subconsciously want to retreat.

    “Treasure is the life of a dragon,” the dragon said solemnly, “but if I can exchange all my treasures for your favor, I am willing to be a dragon without treasure.” He took another step forward.

    I don’t know when it started, the distance between the two has gradually shortened.

    The giant dragon said, “I don’t think I like you.”

    Ge Xiu was slightly taken aback.

    Only to hear the other party continue to say:

    “I’m unable to live without you.”
