Chapter 45

After continuously urging Ji Yuebai, Xu Nian eventually learned how to activate an illusion formation. Yet, to her dismay, she discovered that deploying illusion techniques and formations required not only innate talent but also considerable effort. Ji Yuebai, gifted with remarkable skill, could effortlessly establish complex formations on the spot, whereas Xu Nian found it challenging to even set up a simple one, especially while moving. Xu Nian understood that to achieve Ji Yuebai’s level of skill in creating formations instantly, she would need years of focused practice and an innate talent for understanding illusion formations.

In comparison to ordinary individuals, Xu Nian’s talent was relatively high. Where most would take months of study to successfully activate a formation, she managed to do so in just half a day, benefiting from the innate advantages of her demon nature. However, she still required more practice to refine her skills.

However, her benchmark was Ji Yuebai, a prodigy known for her exceptional skills. Although primarily a sword cultivator, Ji Yuebai effortlessly mastered illusionary techniques, making Xu Nian feel like the least talented snake in comparison.

That night, after completing her nightly cultivation rituals, Ji Yuebai bathed and changed as usual before settling into bed. As soon as she lay down, she felt a soft body stealthily cuddling up to her, encircling her waist and nestling into her shoulder, seamlessly fitting against her.

Even after transforming into human form, Xu Nian continued her habit of sleeping alongside Ji Yuebai. As soon as Ji Yuebai went to bed, Xu Nian swiftly joined her. When she was a small snake, she barely took up any space, but in her human form, she inevitably ended up in contact with Ji Yuebai. However, Ji Yuebai’s pleasant scent didn’t bother Xu Nian, who adapted quickly. And as for the physical touch, it was no issue for her at all. Being a snake demon, she naturally found the most comfortable position to rest in.

Just as she adjusted to the perfect position, Xu Nian felt a gaze from above. Looking up, she met Ji Yuebai’s dark eyes. Innocently blinking, she asked, “What’s wrong? Aren’t we going to sleep?”

Ji Yuebai’s eyes flashed with disbelief, “Are you sure you want to sleep like this?”

Xu Nian, taking it for granted, nuzzled her face against Ji Yuebai’s neck, “Haven’t we always slept together like this?”

Feeling the slippery softness pressing against her arm, the cool, elastic body rubbing slightly through her thin nightgown, Ji Yuebai’s face blushed slightly in the dark night, her voice tinged with urgency, “Xu Nian, put your clothes on.”

Xu Nian wriggled and protested in a playful tone, “Have you ever seen a snake sleep in clothes? I don’t wear them even when I’m awake. And after wearing clothes all day, I’m so tired. If I don’t take them off to relax now, when should I?”

Despite her previous human life, Xu Nian had spent more time as a snake and was accustomed to being naked. The excitement of wearing clothes as a human had initially overshadowed her discomfort, but by evening, she felt drained. Sleeping naked was necessary to rejuvenate for the next day. Having achieved her human form, she had no desire to revert to her snake form anytime soon.

Ji Yuebai, caught off guard by her reasoning, managed to stammer out, “Put on your nightgown.”

Xu Nian sat up, letting the thin blanket slide off her. The moonlight illuminated her graceful figure, casting shadows over her delicate contours. Her dark hair cascaded over her shoulders, contrasting with her flawless skin. The gentle rise and fall of her chest with each breath was accentuated by the soft pink hue of her skin.

She clasped Ji Yuebai’s hand, pressing it against her chest with a pitiful look in her eyes, and cooed, “Only if you dress me.”

Ji Yuebai had been overly indulgent with her lately, leading to her increasingly spoiled behavior.

With her heightened senses as a cultivator, Ji Yuebai had exceptional vision. A brief glimpse of Xu Nian left a lasting image etched in her mind.

The feeling of Xu Nian’s smooth skin against her arm stirred an inexplicable sensation within Ji Yuebai. She suppressed the rising emotions and, somewhat helplessly, fetched a new white nightgown, draping it over Xu Nian.

Xu Nian blinked and playfully demanded, “You need to help me with the sleeves too.”

Left with no other option, Ji Yuebai carefully slid Xu Nian’s arms into the nightgown’s soft, wide sleeves, She meticulously tied the sash on one side and then reluctantly reached for Xu Nian’s slender ankles to help with her undergarments. However, Xu Nian’s delicate foot suddenly slipped from her grasp.

For the first time, Xu Nian showed a hint of modesty, saying, “I can put this part on myself.”

Having been played with for so long, even the usually composed Ji Yuebai had her limits. Not willing to let Xu Nian have the upper hand, she quickly grabbed her ankle, holding her firmly in place, and started pulling the undergarment up her legs.

Caught in such an embarrassing position, Xu Nian blushed deeply. She had only intended to tease Ji Yuebai, hoping she would back down from insisting on dressing her. However, now trapped by Ji Yuebai’s firm grip, she had no choice but to go along with whatever she wanted.

A warm hand firmly held her ankle, sliding the fabric up her long legs, creating a smooth and ticklish feeling. The panties stopped at half-way, and Ji Yuebai released her ankle to switch to the other leg. However, Xu Nian saw the opportunity to escape, but Ji Yuebai anticipated her attempt and pinned her down.

Xu Nian wouldn’t give up so easily. Using her snake-like persistence, she wrapped all her limbs around Ji Yuebai, cleverly flipping their positions. Now on top, she sat triumphantly on Ji Yuebai, undisturbed by the fact that her half-put-on underwear still hung from one leg, her eyes sparkling with playful mischief.

But then, the situation quickly reversed. Xu Nian ended up underneath Ji Yuebai, trapped and unable to break free despite her efforts to twist and turn. Looking into Ji Yuebai’s deep, dark eyes, Xu Nian felt a wave of nervousness and admitted, “Yuebai, I was wrong.”

Ji Yuebai’s cool gaze swept over her, her voice icy, “What did you do wrong?”

Xu Nian didn’t know what she did wrong. She just sensed trouble and tried to appease her, her mind racing for an answer: “I shouldn’t have asked for help getting dressed and then caused trouble. I’ll change, I’ll be good this time.”

Ji Yuebai wasn’t ready to let her off the hook: “Anything else?”

What else could it be? Xu Nian couldn’t think of anything. As she thought, her eyes were inadvertently drawn to the beauty before her – the elegant curve of Ji Yuebai’s collarbones, her skin as smooth as polished jade, the gentle sway of her partially open clothing… For a moment, Xu Nian was utterly captivated.

Realizing Xu Nian had gone quiet for too long, Ji Yuebai caught her staring and quickly covered up more securely, reprimanding, “Xu Nian.”

Caught off guard, Xu Nian hastily wrapped her arms around Ji Yuebai’s neck, half-jokingly yet with a hint of apology, “Okay, okay, I was wrong. Do I need a reason? From now on, I won’t sleep naked anymore, okay?”

Taking advantage of Ji Yuebai’s softened attitude, Xu Nian smoothly slipped into her panties and lay flat, even patting the bed invitingly and casting a flirtatious glance at Ji Yuebai, “It’s late, come to bed.”

Ji Yuebai almost couldn’t help but laugh at Xu Nian’s slyness. It turned out Xu Nian had been restraining her true nature, fearing repercussions from Ji Yuebai’s regained memories. Now, realizing Ji Yuebai was even kinder to her, she relaxed and gradually revealed her true self.

As Ji Yuebai settled into bed, Xu Nian cuddled up even closer than before, her actions bolder. She laid her head on Ji Yuebai’s arm and intertwined their legs, her movements teasing.

Cultivators like Ji Yuebai value purity and restraint, and her patience was wearing thin. Slightly annoyed, she pushed Xu Nian away, “Sleep by yourself. Stop clinging to me.”

Ji Yuebai braced for Xu Nian to resist, but to her surprise, Xu Nian actually backed off. Then, pretending to be hurt, Xu Nian stood up and declared, “I got dressed just like you wanted, and now you won’t even let me sleep with you? Fine, I won’t sleep with you then. I’ll go sleep with Mu Yanyu.”
