His cheek was gently touched, and before Yu Qing could react, he heard that word –
What? The Duke called him baby?
Although Yu Qing wanted to remain calm, because of his words, he was too scared to move. Shen Jue naturally noticed Yu Qing’s stiffness, but he didn’t care, then he picked up the blood drink that Yu Qing had been staring at for a long time and shoved it into his hands, “This has alcohol in it, you can taste a little, but don’t drink too much.”
“Oh.” Yu Qing froze for a moment, he didn’t know where to look but his eyes finally fell on the cup in his hand.
The Duke saw that he wanted to drink, but was too embarrassed to take it, so he deliberately brought it to him?
Affection was coldly shoved in Xiao Qingshan’s face, her expression was a bit confused, after a while, she raised her hand and patted her chest, “Shen Jue, you were injured some time ago and haven’t been going out, I was worried that you had changed, now it seems that you have indeed changed, your baby looks very charming, is he an adult? First time at a party? What family is he from?”
“Grown up, don’t worry, I don’t do it to minors.” Shen Jue only answered Xiao Qingshan’s previous question before he lowered his voice to say to Yu Qing, “Just drink, don’t stick your tongue out and lick it.”
Because of Yu Qing’s actions, a bunch of eyes quickly flocked around.
These nobles had lived for a long time, they were all familiar with each other, and Yu Qing as a new face tonight, was very attractive, and he made such tempting action yet was unaware of it, so these old people were beginning to be a bit stupid.
Yu Qing quickly lowered his head, “I’m sorry.”
Shen Jue looked at such a careful and cautious Yu Qing, in fact, his heart felt a bit complicated, in his memory, before he found out that Qiao Jiangyuan liked Yu Qing, he had little impression of this slave, at that time his heart was only on Qiao Jiangyuan, Yu Qing, like all the people in the manor, was ignored by him.
And then, after he went bankrupt, he saw that Yu Qing was reserved, as if he was born to be a beauty raised with money, no one would know that he was left on the street as a young child and could only survive by eating garbage and rat’s blood.
At that time, Yu Qing was graceful and generous, never the way he was now.
Could a person change that much?
Shen Jue had some doubts about whether or not Yu Qing was faking it now.
Xiao Qingshan saw the interaction between the two of them and smiled charmingly, “Shen Jue, you should keep a closer eye on him, I see a lot of people looking at your baby tonight.”
“Yeah.” Shen Jue responded nonchalantly and took the initiative to pull Yu Qing to sit down, “Sit down, the auction is about to start.”
Not long after they sat down, a waiter came over to hand out auction cards, and the man was about to give Yu Qing a number as well, but Yu Qing quickly shook his head, he wasn’t auctioning. Shen Jue glanced at him, and said nothing. Yu Qing had this nature, even if there was something he wanted, he probably wouldn’t speak out.
The auction had begun.
Shen Jue wasn’t interested in the previous auctions, but Xiao Qingshan was distracted by the auction items and didn’t speak to him again, but the other person beside him couldn’t sit still and moved from time to time.
He could only turn his head to look over and ask in a low voice, “What’s wrong with you?”
Yu Qing had his head down, but when he heard Shen Jue, he slowly raised his head. His eyes were inexplicably glassy, and his face was even flushed, “Duke, I …… I’m not feeling well, can I go first?”
When he said this, his voice was particularly small, as if he was afraid that the people around him would hear, but it was because his voice was too low, and there was the sound of the auctioneer introducing the auction items, Shen Jue didn’t hear the words of Yu Qing, “Hmm?”
Yu Qing pursed his lips in embarrassment and simply came closer to Shen Jue’s ear and said it again.
Too close, Yu Qing smelled the faint scent of water on him, it didn’t feel like it came from his clothes, but from his skin, and the sweet, sweet smell of blood, he couldn’t help but lightly inhale.
This action, his body’s reaction was wrong.
Shen Jue slightly tilted his head sideways, he heard him this time, then he seriously looked at Yu Qing, he saw that Yu Qing’s demeanor was very wrong, he seemed …… drugged.
His gaze instantly swept over the cup he had just handed to Yu Qing, which had been placed on the table before they arrived, and it seemed that quite a few people had passed by this table while he and Xiao Qingshan were talking, but he hadn’t cared.
Could it be that the drink had been drugged?
Shen Jue looked down at the auctioneer who was still auctioning, it was far from time to auction the ring, but Yu Qing wasn’t feeling well, there was no way he could keep Yu Qing here or let him go back to the car alone, he guaranteed that as soon as he let Yu Qing out of his sight, a shameless nobleman might be tying him up in bed in the next instant.
But the person who dared to drug him right under his nose was really bold.
Shen Jue directly stood up, one hand picked up the cup that Yu Qing had just drunk, while pulling up Yu Qing, “Let’s go back.”
Yu Qing was already a little unsteady, but he was still trying to control himself.
Xiao Wenshan saw Shen Jue suddenly get up and froze, “Where are you going?”
“Nothing I want, so I’m leaving first, help me talk to the Wei family, I’ll put the money directly into their account later.” Shen Jue was too close to Yu Qing, naturally he felt his body shaking lightly, so he simply put his arm around his shoulders and held him as they walked out.
Yu Qing’s body couldn’t help but stiffen when he was embraced, but he quickly relaxed again.
The auction hall was dimly lit, and Yu Qing couldn’t help but look at the person next to him, his face was like a painting, thick and harsh, aggressive, even his long eyelashes were firm, not curly at all, when he lowered his eyes to look at people, it was like a black swallowtail butterfly flapping its butterfly wings. The light fell slowly on his face, because of the dimness, the sense of distance seemed to have receded a lot.
Because of the close proximity, Yu Qing also saw several teeth marks on his neck, all of which he had bitten that day.
Shen Jue hadn’t noticed, but he had noticed that many people had noticed the teeth mark on Shen Jue’s neck, and their eyes always glanced over seemingly before looking back at him.
They, the nobles, must be wondering who could have drank Shen Jue’s blood.
Would they suspect it was him?
While Yu Qing was rambling in his thoughts, they had already walked out of the auction hall. Shen Jue opened the car door and shoved Yu Qing in before he got back in. The driver and bodyguard were a little surprised to see them out so quickly, “Duke, is the auction over?”
“No, drive to the nearest brotel.” Shen Jue calmly responded, and then looked at Yu Qing, “Can you still tolerate it?”
Yu Qing heard the word brothel. When he heard the word brothel, he jerked his head up, he was trying to hide his body’s reaction, but did he find out?
“No, I don’t want to go to a brothel!” He shook his head in a hurry.
Shen Jue looked at him with eyes like he was looking at an unreasonable child, “A clean woman or man will be found for you.” He paused, “Or are you worried about the cost, I brought you out tonight, so I should be partly responsible for your current situation, so don’t worry about the cost, I’ll pay for it.”
Yu Qing’s face turned white, he opened his mouth, but before he could make a sound, Shen Jue had already turned his head away, “Drive, hurry up.”
“No, don’t go there.” Yu Qing finally said, but his words were insignificant, the driver didn’t listen to him, there were three people in the car, and no one would care what he thought. Yu Qing sat in his seat, obviously his body was hot, but his heart was cold.
This wasn’t the first time he was so angry with his origin, if he wasn’t a half-blood, if he …… he was also a noble, then would anyone be able to listen to what he was saying, his opinion.
The driver drove fast and soon found a high class brothel that was open. The Courtyard.
Shen Jue swept a glance, then threw the money clip he was carrying to Yu Qing, “Go down, by the way, do I need to pick you up tomorrow?”
Yu Qing looked at the money clip thrown into his lap for a long time before he reached out and picked it up, he kept his head down, as if not wanting to let anyone see the expression on his face, “No …… no.” He opened the car door with a trembling hand, and almost fell when he went down, but fortunately he held the car door.
He took a soft breath, his free hand clenched into a fist, he turned around and took a step towards the brothel. There was a guard at the door who raised an eyebrow at the sight of him, “Sir, here to enjoy yourself? Inside please.” He handed Yu Qing a mask.
The other party seemed to be a big smoker, and as soon as he opened his mouth, he smelled a whiff of smoke, which made Yu Qing’s already pale face even paler. He glanced at the other man and walked inside with heavy steps.
Shen Jue watched as Yu Qing went inside and then said to the bodyguard in the car, “You too, go down and follow him.”
The bodyguard froze, “Duke, Yu Qing went to …… follow him?”
“Yes, you’re going to make sure no one else gets on him.” Shen Jue said calmly.
Once the bodyguard heard this, he felt that Shen Jue had a very valid point and hurriedly got out of the car.
Shen Jue and the driver were the only ones left in the car, and Shen Jue took out his pocket watch and looked at the time. If Yu Qing was fast enough to get rid of the … drug, he should be able to come out before two o’clock, he hoped he didn’t take long.
Letting Yu Qing go to a brothel. He couldn’t let anyone else help Yu Qing solve this problem because it would probably lead to emotional disputes, but going to a brothel was a simple matter, the money was paid and the goods were delivered. The customers were all wearing masks.
It was possible that someone might recognize his car, so Shen Jue instructed the driver, “Drive a little further ahead.”
“Yes.” The driver did as he was told.
