Translators: THIS BRO, death
It was only now that Mu Yifan really woke up, “Why do I have to take off my clothes?”
Zhan Beitian didn’t explain, just turned his head towards the direction of the stove.
On top, a large iron tub with both the diameter and height of about a metre was placed, with an interior that was just large enough to hold a person. At this moment, white steam was floating out of the bucket, as well as a dense medicinal smell. Moreover, a large fire was roaring beneath the bucket, and it looked like a huge portion of medicine was being simmered.
Mu Yifan looked in the direction of his gaze.
He didn’t know why, but this scene made him think of medicinal baths in ancient times. Medicine would be boiled while a person bathed in it, and it would cause the poison within one’s body to be forced out.
Mu Yifan vaguely guessed what the male lead wanted to do, and couldn’t help but retreat a little, shuffling towards the door.
He had a feeling that the heated medicine in the tub wasn’t something simple, and almost definitely had the male lead’s spirit spring water in it.
However, Zhan Beitian was quicker than him by a step, and closed the main door of the kitchen, blocking Mu Yifan’s escape path. He knitted his brows, and said in a deep tone, “Get in and bathe.”
Mu Yifan showed him an innocent face, as if he had no idea what the other man was talking about, “In where?”
Zhan Beitian suddenly narrowed his eyes, giving a warning, “Do you want me to do it for you?”
He just didn’t understand. Bathing was obviously a comfortable activity, but this person made it the same as taking medicine, as if it was fatal or something.
“I just bathed last night, you didn’t need to go through so much trouble…” On one hand, Mu Yifan smiled, on the other, he retreated.
However, before he finished speaking, Zhan Beitian had gripped his wrist with one hand and his clothes with the other. With a quick pull upwards, he nimbly took his shirt off.
“Zhan Beitian, what are you doing?” Mu Yifan yelled loudly, tightly clutching the shirt that had been stripped off him. Since it was the kind of shirt that went over his head, it had been very easily pulled off by Zhan Beitian.
Zhan Beitian ignored him, simply lifting him up with one hand and pulling down Mu Yifan’s pants with the other. After a few tugs, Mu Yifan was stripped completely naked and then placed in the large iron bucket.
Mu Yifan wanted to get up, but was kept in place by Zhan Beitian’s hand.
He angrily went, “Zhan Beitian, don’t think that just because we’re both men you can randomly take my clothes off without my permission! Believe it or not, I can sue you for harassment!”
Zhan Beitian, “…”
He took a long strip of silken white fabric from his pants pocket, folded it a few times, then covered Mu Yifan’s eyes with it.
“Why are you covering my eyes?”
Mu Yifan wanted to pull off the fabric, but was prevented by Zhan Beitian, “You’re not allowed to take it off.”
“Then give me a reason not to.”
Zhan Beitian said coldly, “Do you want me to use it to tie you up?”
Mu Yifan immediately quieted down, “What are you going to do?”
He suddenly felt that the water was getting hotter. The heat of the fire underneath the iron bucket seemed to have increased.
Suddenly, he didn’t know whether it was because of his body or what, but the temperature of the water suddenly turned ice-cold. Gradually, his body began to change. One second the bones of his whole body would hurt, and in the next he would feel extremely comfortable, it was very contradicting.
Since Mu Yifan’s eyes were covered, his sense of hearing had become sharper.
When he heard Zhan Beitian about to put his hand into the water, he unconsciously went to avoid him. Then, the two of them froze.
