Gu Nuo’er was indignant and looked up with her fair and round face.
Her eyes were like two black gemstones, flickering with determination and fearlessness.
The child put her arms at her waist. “I know! But the bear bear won’t be able to bite me!”
Ye Siming’s thin lips curled into a mocking smile.
“You don’t know the immensity of heaven and earth. If I hadn’t come in time, it would have bitten off your hand.”
Gu Nuo’er puffed her cheeks as if wanting to prove herself.
“Elder Brother Siming, just you watch! Baby Nuo didn’t lie to you!”
The child pounced up to the cage again, putting her small hand in, as if wanting to reach for the black bear.
However, the black bear was clearly afraid of the young man next to him.
Its pupils moved back and forth but it didn’t dare to move up.
Gu Nuo’er was very angry and became anxious.
“Bear bear, come over!”
Ye Siming threatened with a cold gaze, “You dare?”
His hand rested on the dagger at his waist, as if he was preparing to give the bear a lethal attack at any moment.
Gu Nuo’er urged in her childish voice, “Bear bear, I know that you aren’t feeling well. Come over here! I’ll help you!”
Ye Siming spoke up to object.
Although the black bear was not smart, its gaze darted between Gu Nuo’er and Ye Siming.
In the end, this bear with a massive size chose to move to a corner of the cage.
It only left behind a back view for Gu Nuo’er and Ye Siming.
The child puffed up her cheeks angrily, looking like a white bun from the side.
She turned her head and looked at Ye Siming, “Brother, what are you doing? It really won’t hurt me!”
By this time, Wanxuan had dragged her two limp legs nearby.
She grabbed Gu Nuo’er into her arms and kept on bowing at Ye Siming to express her thanks.
“Young Master Ye, thank goodness you’re around. Otherwise, if the princess were to get hurt, this servant won’t be able to make up for it even if this servant were to die ten thousand times!”
Wanxuan looked at the princess who was safe in her arms, tears almost flowing out from her eyes.
“Princess, you’re going to scare this servant to death! How can this bear understand humans? If it were to hurt you, this servant will regret it for the rest of my life.”
Gu Nuo’er was unable to break free from Wanxuan’s grasp and she pouted her small lips very high up.
“You guys don’t believe Baby Nuo.”
Ye Siming crossed his arms and looked at the child’s gaze which reflected her unwillingness to give up.
He asked, “What on earth do you want to do? If you want to touch the bear, why do you have to be so obstinate about it?”
Gu Nuo’er pointed at the black bear in the cage.
“There’s a broken arrow in its fur at its neck and it is giving the bear bear a lot of pain. Baby Nuo wants to help the bear bear to pluck it out.”
Ye Siming frowned and looked into the cage.
The black bear was no longer angry, but it was still irritable. From time to time, it would bang its head against the iron cage.
The boy looked at the princess, his expression was unrestrained and cold, but Gu Nuo’er’s eyes were clear.
Ye Siming pursed his thin lips. “If I help you to pluck it out, can you be honest and not think of going in to touch it?”
Gu Nuo’er nodded repeatedly.
She clasped her hands and said pitifully, “Elder Brother Siming, can you do it?”
Ye Siming raised the corners of his lips and gave a perfunctory smile.
It was as if he was saying, ‘What do you think?’
Ye Siming walked over to Little Lezi, who had fainted on the ground.
He kicked Little Lezi’s body with his black boots. “Get up. Go and open the cage.”
Little Lezi was kicked awake when he heard such an inhuman request.
He shivered in fright, “Young Master Ye, this bear has a fierce nature and it’s dangerous!”
“Stop the crap and go open the cage.”
Little Lezi didn’t dare to do that. Ye Siming tugged the keys from his waist directly and walked over to the cage.
Wanxuan quickly carried Gu Nuo’er to stand further away.
She had one hand on Gu Nuo’er’s forehead as if preparing to cover the princess’s eyes at any moment if an incident of the black bear eating a human were to take place.
