JoAnne: You are not the only one. I even like his wig, that's how bad I have it.
'You can go if you want, but I want you to stay because if you leave, I won't have anyone to talk to... oh look! a bird! Bye snake, I'm going home with this bird.'
Man she just takes everything to bed with her, this girl.
She doesn't think he deserves it for killing her half-brother's mother, I guess.
That's what I'm talking about! Yes! Do you, little snake man!
This poor girl, all she ever hears is 'wait for me'.
You know, living in a hut on a mountain, surviving on fruit, talking to animals... it's not much a step more to talk to things that aren't there.
Yeah, she's drunk. And crazy, and totally not at all what any of us care about: not Ye Hua, not us. Scat, cat.
Well first, stop being a snake.
His smile is so cute.
Uncle Three suggests three things. First, there isn't a young woman who doesn't like a charming man. He wants Ye Hua to walk right up to her and smile. She is "guaranteed to melt".
Worked for us. And all y'all out there reading, too, I bet.
Crown Prince: "So is this how you tricked Lady Cheng Yu into giving herself to you?"
That's a sore spot for Lian Song, that relationship ended 30'000 years ago and I get the feeling he regrets it. Anyway, Crown Prince says this won't work either. She is not afraid of anything - not even of dragons.
I'm telling you... since Ye Hua is committed elsewhere, I would not exactly frown upon Lian Song and his own considerably cute smile.
How do you make pitiful attractive?
Oh that kind of pity. I was picturing something else. Look at him patting that blanket like 'soon, my precious, sooooooon.'
It's hilarious. And a very nice view, indeed.
She asks him to write 夜华 out for her. On her hand. Your uncle deserves a BIG present, man. You already made this woman fall for you ultra hard, Crown Prince. With a little help from fate, I guess.
I practically felt that on my own hand. But speaking of fate, yes, I'm guessing he didn't actually have to do anything to bring this about. If it didn't happen here, it would have happened some other way. That's what fate is, right?
At night, she leaves him her bed and sleeps sitting up, head on the table. But the boy came for cuddles and cuddles he gets - he picks her up and carries her into bed. Very carefully, he covers her with the blanket and then gets in next to her. She turns to hug him close.
And he smiles like the adorable sweetheart he is.
The next morning, she almost burns down the hut. The woman can't cook! Like ... not at all. Their conversation outside about how she survived up until now and raw meet (which he hates) is hilarious. She immediately starts telling him about her finicky black snake who really liked raw meat a lot, but gave her much troubles. It had to sleep with her everyday! She even got a quilt so that it wouldn't be cold.
I'm laughing now just thinking about it.
She goes out to pick some more herbs ... and doesn't return. Ye Hua gets concerned and goes in search of her. She got lost! The last time she went into this forest, it took her eight days to find her way out. Ye Hua: "To be able to get lost to such an extent is an ability all on its own". And: "I have always been very tolerant to those who aren't smart".
Well she is kind of an idiot.
I melt again. Actually, my melted bits evaporate.
I love their interactions. LOVE. Love. Love. It's not only that he is completely and utterly in love and radiates it with every look, every breath, every smile. It's also the way they talk (like equals) and what they talk about. Little things. Food, herbs, the forest. For a man like him, who was groomed to be the next Ruler since birth, this must be paradise.
It's odd because he clearly is aware that they are not equals - and she proves to be quite forgetful and incapable in lots of ways - but he doesn't care, at all. She has other qualities that make her equal to his stronger abilities, and he adores her for those qualities and is deliriously happy to just go through the business of living, together with her.
Let's just enjoy the fuzzy warm happy feelings for now. We can start worrying about the obvious soon enough.
Nope. Let's just stop here. Shall we? Can we? No, I suppose not.
