Chapter 2 – Husband Cui Jiu

At this time, it was almost dusk, and the golden glow of the sunset shines right on the man’s elegant and noble face, making his eyebrows and eyes more profound.
The sharp eyes under his dashing eyebrows make people feel his fierce vibe.

 

This is a super handsome man.
Under his high-bridged nose, the corners of his thin lips are slightly curled up, making him seem to be smiling naturally, which dilutes the stern and gloomy aura in his eyes.

 

Liu Miantang still remembers that when she saw him for the first time recovering from an illness, the first thought that flashed in her mind was: Although he has a good look, he doesn’t look like the loyal type.
He has a face that draws the attention of many.
Whoever becomes his wife will be tired.

 

The ancients said that you can’t judge people by their appearance, otherwise, you will be punished by Heaven.

 

When she was still in a daze on her sickbed, it did not take long till she found out that the retribution for judging others unspokenly has come.
The sachet she prepared before her marriage to give to her future husband was strikingly hanging in this handsome man’s mouth. 

 

Hearing that the young doctor who diagnosed her pulse called him “Ninth Master Cui”, she vaguely guessed that she will be that unlucky lady who was destined to be tired.

 

When she got a definite answer from the doctor, she was filled with mixed feelings and didn’t know how to face her unfamiliar husband.

 

At that time, she still couldn’t say much.
She could only weakly watch Cui Jiu sit aside on her bed and carefully ask the doctor: “How is her condition and how long will she be able to speak normally?”

 

The man’s low and magnetic voice makes people feel inexplicably at ease…

 

Just when she was thinking, Cui Jiu had lifted the curtain of the door and strode in.
He paused in his steps when he saw her staring at him in a daze.
After a moment of silence, he said lightly, “I’m back.”

 

She recalls that it has been more than a month since both of them last saw each other.

 

Unfortunately, she and Cui Jiu have been married for several years, but the memories are all gone in her mind now.
She can never understand the feeling of bitterness and lovesickness of waiting for a husband that has been gone for a long time.

 

However, she knew something about the past from the words of others from time to time.
She only heard that they had been affectionate with each other since they got married.

Although unfamiliar, she gratefully remembered her husband, Cui Jiu’s effort for the Liu family and her.
She got up and walked over, ready to take off his cloak and dust for him.

 

But before she could get close, Cui Jiu’s long fingers had untied the tie and threw the satin cloak behind him on the bench.

 

Miantang saw that he had sat down, so she went to the table and poured a cup of water for him: “Servant Li is cooking in the kitchen and hasn’t brought in the hot water yet.
This pot of water is too warm to make tea.
You should have some of this first if you are thirsty.”

 

Then, according to the rules learned from the female teacher who taught her “The etiquette of how to become a perfect wife” before she got married, she bent her body in half and raised the water cup to her forehead to serve her husband.

 

This is the etiquette for a woman to respect her husband.

 

Cui Jiu’s deep eyes narrowed slightly.
Instead of taking her cup of water, he picked up the book scroll on one side and flipped through it.
He said with concern: “The highly-skilled Doctor Zhao said that you have just recovered from your serious illness and are most afraid of the cold.
You should avoid drinking such cold water.”

 

With that, he shouted out of the room, “Servant Li, send some hot tea here!”

 

Servant Li was very handy, she sent a pot of thick hot tea in a very short time.

 

Cui Jiu took the tea served by Servant Li, naturally and casually rolled up his sleeves, brushed the tea foam with the tea cover, and took a slow and elegant sip.

 

In the past, when Liu Miantang was practicing tea ceremony with her female teacher, she once heard that the way of drinking tea was exquisite, such as the uncovering of the tea lid, whisking of tea, and grinding of the surface.

 

At that time, when she saw the master’s natural and smooth demonstration, she had secretly admired it, but now, looking at Cui Jiu’s elegant tea posture, it seemed that the lady was a little crude in comparison.

 

She only remembered that the Cui family was wealthy in the capital, but they originated as boatmen who made a fortune from selling private salt.
Unexpectedly, Cui Jiu, the son of a merchant family, had the charm of a scholar family.

In comparison, as the daughter of a despondent official, she is tactless and impulsive, she doesn’t seem to be quite commensurate with the jade-like gentleman right in front of her…

 

After Servant Li offered tea, she respectfully stepped out and left Liu Miantang and Cui Jiu to sit opposite each other in the room.

 

There have not been many times the two had stayed alone together before.
When she was seriously ill and lingering in bed, she was always served by the servant girl.
Then, when she was well, Cui Jiu went out for business again.

 

Now in the quiet room, they sit opposite each other, and that’s when she remembers that being a wife, not only does she need to know how to serve her husband respectfully, but they would also need to consummate like intertwined lovebirds…

 

At the thought of this, she suddenly felt a little nervous.
It was getting late now, but she was not ready.

 

However, after Cui Jiu put down his cup of tea, he gently asked her some questions in regards to her recent recovery and if she has been recuperating properly.

 

Seeing that her husband was just chatting with her, Liu Miantang secretly breathed a sigh of relief and answered his questions one by one.

 

After engaging in a few idle talks, Cui Jiu suddenly asked, “You’ve just moved in today.
Take some time off to walk around in town tomorrow, if there is anything you wanna buy, by all means, buy it”

 

Miantang thought for a moment and said, “I don’t lack anything.
There are many people on the streets, I’d b
