Chapter 286 - Remember Her, If There's A Chance, Come Back to Repay the Favor
Ye Siming was skilled in martial arts, and Jiang Xiaoran was not weak either.
The two of them fought side by side. Not long later, they hunted seven to eight wild rabbits and an elaphure pregnant.
In the beginning, Ye Siming had already injured the elaphure’s leg with an arrow.
He and Jiang Xiaoran approached and saw that the elaphure’s stomach was huge. It lay on the ground but kept struggling to get up and escape.
However, blood kept flowing from its leg, and its struggles were futile.
Jiang Xiaoran took out the dagger he carried with him and said, “Isn’t this killing two deers with one arrow? I wonder if the deer in its stomach has grown to be big enough. I’ll cut its neck and let it bleed so that it won’t die so painfully.”
Ye Siming suddenly reached out to stop it and said coldly, “Don’t kill it. Let it go.”
Jiang Xiaoran was stunned. “Why? This is a deer. It’d be so delicious when roasted. Such a big one can fill the stomachs of three to four people.”
“I said let it go.” Ye Siming lowered his eyes and looked at the flustered deer’s eyes. For some reason, he thought of Gu Nuo’er’s black and round eyes.
If they were to bring such an injured pregnant doe back, with the child’s delicate personality, her eyes would probably turn red and she would say that her heart ached.
Seeing Ye Siming’s determined attitude, Jiang Xiaoran felt perplexed but could only put away the dagger and say helplessly, “Alright, alright. You’re amazing. I’ll listen to you.”
As soon as he finished speaking, there was a sound of clothes tearing.
Jiang Xiaoran was stunned and looked down.
A piece of his clothing had actually been torn off by Ye Siming!
“Siming! What are you doing?!”
Jiang Xiaoran watched helplessly as Ye Siming squatted down to pull out the arrow for the doe.
He also took out the medicine that Madam Bai had given him and sprinkled it on the female deer’s wound. Then, he used a piece of Jiang Xiaoran’s clothes to bandage it.
Jiang Xiaoran was stunned. “You… you actually treated this female deer?! That’s fine, but why didn’t you tear your clothes?!”
Ye Siming didn’t even raise his head and said in a cold voice, “You’re rich. Your clothes are made of good material and it’s faster to stop bleeding.”
Jiang Xiaoran was so angry that he wanted to vomit blood.
This Ye Siming and the little princess, Gu Nuo’er, were indeed good friends.
Why did he always suffer because of these two people?!
After Ye Siming bandaged the doe, the doe carefully stuck out her pink tongue and licked the back of his hand.
It was very smart and probably knew that Ye Siming was helping it.
When Ye Siming saw this, his thin lips curled up into a charming smile.
“You’re much more tactful than that little thing. Go. The person who saved you is called Gu Nuo’er. Remember her. If there’s a chance, come back to repay the favor.”
With his help, the doe staggered up and ran back into the forest.
Before she left, she didn’t forget to look back at Ye Siming.
There were only a few wild rabbits left from their hunt.
After they brought the wild rabbits back, Bai Yi helped. He, Ye Siming, and Jiang Xiaoran swiftly peeled and roasted the rabbits.
Not long later, everyone finally had a simple bite.
Although it was a drop in the bucket, fortunately, Gu Yihan had made preparations before the mountain path collapsed.
The imperial guards worked together and with the help of a few generals and officials, the mountain path was about to be cleared.
It was almost dawn before the emperor and the others returned to the palace.
Everyone was exhausted. When they first started on the journey, they had been chatting and laughing away.
However, on their trip back, the officials and consorts all felt lucky to have survived an ordeal.
When the nervousness eased, many people lay in the carriages and fell asleep.
Initially, everyone was rubbing their palms together, wanting to come hunting with the emperor to show off their skills.
However, they didn’t even reach the edge of the hunting grounds.
It was really a miss.
