第33章 报仇雪恨

Chapter 33: To Take Revenge and Wipe Out a Grudge

深夜,虫鸣声渐绝,万物俱静,宁轩宫内烛光盏盏,凌萧听着小李子打发一个小太监来告诉他的消息,呆愣了表情。

In the late night, the cry of insects gradually vanished as all living beings went still. With a small candle light within Ning Xuan Palace, Ling Xiao was listening to some news that was brought by and eunuch Xiao Lizi sent out. After he listened to it, he had a stupefied expression.

“你说皇上让宰相回乡养老?让兰蔚跟着?”

“You said that the Emperor allowed the Prime Minister to return home and enjoy retirement? With Lan Wei following him?”

“是。”小太监低头应着。

“Yes.” The little eunuch answered with his head bowed.

凌萧闻言,愕然的靠在了床沿上。

Ling Xiao leaned against the bedside, stunned at the news he heard.

没想到皇帝竟然这么果断,一下子就将宰相给撤了,原本之前的种种,凌萧都猜测,皇帝是要护着宰相府,可是现在……

He didn’t expect the Emperor to be this decisive and have the Prime Minister removed in such a short time. Based on what happened before, Ling Xiao guessed that the Emperor was protecting the Prime Minister household. But now…

凌萧心下慌张,皇帝的做法让他有些看不明猜不透,这样的出乎意料让凌萧的心很难安定,他不知道皇帝究竟知道多少实情。

Ling Xiao was truly confused, the way the Emperor handled things were unclear and hard to guess, this kind of unknown made it really hard for Ling Xiao to be calm. He did not know just exactly how much the Emperor knew about the situation.

凌萧叹息般敛下了眸,对着跪在的小太监挥了挥手道:“好了,你下去吧。”

Ling Xiao sighed, coming back to reality. He waved his hand at the kneeling eunuch and said: “Alright, you can go.”

“是。”小太监弯腰行礼。

“Yes.” The small eunuch bowed and saluted.

“等等。”凌萧突然唤住了小太监,沉吟道:“给我打桶热水进来,我要沐浴,另外将我衣柜里的那套白衣拿出来。”

“Wait.” Ling Xiao suddenly called to the eunuch, speaking firmly: “Get me a bucket of hot water, I want to take a bath. Also get the me the white clothing set from my wardrobe.”

皇帝喜着黑衣,却偏爱他人穿素色的衣裳……

The Emperor liked wearing black, yet he preferred others to wear white clothing…

他不能干等在这里,必须做些什么。

He cannot sit around waiting, he must do something,

“皇上,您不去宁轩宫吗?”小李子恭敬的在皇帝的身后行礼询问。

“Your Majesty, are you not going to Ning Xuan Palace?” Xiao Lizi deferentially asked the Emperor as he saluted behind him.

皇帝双手背负,立在凉亭中,吹着夜风,背影孤傲而清冷。

With both hands behind his back, the Emperor was at the pavilion. The wind blew the night air, his back figure proud and aloof, and also clearly cold.

小李子本不敢随意打扰皇帝,但皇帝从御书房出来就一直站在这里,也有小半个时辰了,再站下去就要过子时了。

Xiao Lizi originally did not dare to disturb the Emperor, but the Emperor had walked out from the Imperial Study and stoof here for a while, almost an hour. If he stayed any longer, it would past midnight.

皇帝听闻小李子的询问,转头微微看了他一眼,这一眼极具震慑,似乎在责怪小李子的打扰,小李子见状,忙心惊胆战得跪在了地上,却颤抖得连请罪的话都说不出。

The Emperor heard Xiao Lizi’s inquiry and turned back to give him a glance. This glance was extremely intimidating, like he was blaming Xiao Lizi for disturbing him. Xiao Lizi hurried knelt on the ground when he saw it, his heart great alarmed. He was shuddering so much he wasn’t even get out a word to beg for forgiveness.

皇帝淡淡瞥开了眼,不悦的皱眉,心里头想起了另一个小太监,那个小太监虽然怕他,但是表现比小李子有趣可爱多了。

The Emperor indifferently gave him another glance and frowned in annoyance. His mind recalled another little eunuch, although that little eunuch was afraid of him, his behavior was much more interesting and adorable than this Xiao Lizi.

皇帝抿了抿唇,一甩衣袖,终于决定了去向。

He pursed his lips and waved his sleeves, finally deciding on where he would go.

“摆驾回宫。”他说。

“Arrange a ride back.” he said.

小李子愣然,皇帝这就回宫了?不去找凌总管么?

Xiao Lizi stared blankly, they were returning back to the palace just like this? Wasn’t he going to find Steward Ling?

正当他讶异时,远远的看见凌萧被一名小太监扶着过来。

Just when he was being surprised, he saw Ling Xiao appearing from the distance, being supported by another eunuch.

凌萧身材修长,一身白衣在夜色下朦朦胧胧,宛如谪仙,待他走近了看,却见他面上惨白毫无血色,虽束发整齐,却掩盖不住虚弱之姿。

Ling Xiao’s stature was slender, a hazy aura seemed to rise from him with his body covered in white, like an immortal that was banished from heaven. When he came closer and could see him better, he saw that his face was deathly pale. Although his hair was orderly, it was not able to hide his weak deposition.

皇帝见状皱眉,凌萧已然到了皇帝的跟前,朝皇帝行礼。

The Emperor was frowning when he saw that while Ling Xiao finally stopped in front of the Emperor and saluted.

皇帝单手扶起凌萧,将凌萧揽进自己的怀里,面色些微的不悦:“伤未好,礼就免了,怎么不呆在宫里好好歇着?”

The Emperor supported Ling Xiao up with one hand and pulled him into his embrace. His face was somewhat displeased as he said: “You’re injury isn’t well yet, so there is no need for the courtesy. Why are you not staying in the palace to rest?”

他的眼神瞄过了凌萧的受伤的肩头,见那处并未出血,才悄然的转开了目光。

He glanced at Ling Xiao’s shoulder, seeing that it was not bleeding, he quietly took back his gaze.

凌萧见此,心中泛起一阵暖意,他开口柔声道:“奴才久见皇上未归,心中担忧便来看看。”

A burst of warmth filled Ling Xiao’s heart when he saw that, and he gently said: “Your servant was worried after not seeing Your Majesty back and came to take a look.”

见皇帝面色未缓,凌萧心下忐忑,不由小心翼翼的问:“奴才……是不是多事了?”

Seeing that the Emperor’s face did not relax, Ling Xiao felt nervous and cautiously asked: “Is your servant… being too meddlesome?”

皇帝闻言,低头看了凌萧一眼。

The Emperor lowered his head to look at him when he heard that.

面前的凌萧,白衣胜雪,面色苍白,额前冒着虚汗,但他目光含情,伏在自己怀里的身子状似无骨,皇帝不由内心一阵柔软,揽着凌萧在他发上轻轻落下一吻,便将人打横抱起。

The Ling Xiao in front of him, dressed in white clothing like snow with a pale face and sweat, but his eyes were alluring. The body in his embrace seemed to be powerless and the Emperor softenm gently laying a kiss on Ling Xiao’s hair. Then he carried him up horizontally.

“…皇上…”突然被抱起,吓得凌萧紧紧的环住了皇帝的脖子,不安的叫唤。

“…Your Majesty..” Being picked up so suddenly, frighten, Ling Xiao clung closely to the Emperor’s neck and worriedly cried out.

皇帝垂眸看了他一眼,温柔了神情,却并不多话,抱着他一路而宁轩宫而去。

The Emperor dipped down and gave him a gentle look, but did not say anything as he carried him to Ning Xuan Palace.

凌萧僵硬着身子一动也不敢动,皇帝不开口,他也不敢多说什么,只能眼睁睁的看着皇帝将他抱回了宁轩宫的床上,给他盖上了被子。

Ling Xiao stayed stiff, not daring to move. Since the Emperor wasn’t saying anything, he didn’t dare to say anything either. He could only stare blankly as the Emperor carried him all the way back to Ning Xuan Palace and laid him on the bed, covering him with a blanket.

“皇上……奴才……”

“Your Majesty… this servant…”

皇帝对他微微摇了摇头:“有什么事,等你好了再说。”

The Emperor shook his head slightly at him: “If you have other matters, wait until you’re better first.”

“可是,皇上,您刚刚……”凌萧挣扎着要起身。

“But, Your Majesty, just now you…” Ling Xiao struggled, trying to get up.

“刚刚朕问的话,是要你思考周全了再回答朕。”皇帝接下了凌萧的话头说着,压着凌萧未受伤的肩膀微微用力,制止他的起身。

“The question We asked, is for you to first thoroughly think about then reply to Us.” The Emperor continued where Ling Xiao left off of and pressed down slightly on the shoulder Ling Xiao wasn’t injured on, trying to stop him from getting up.

凌萧一愣,只得乖巧听话的躺回了床上,心中忐忑万分。

At the unexpected reply, Ling Xiao could only obediently lay back down on the best, his heart nervous.

皇帝的话是什么意思?

What does the Emperor mean?

“夜深了,你休息吧,朕回去了。”

“It’s late, so rest. We will go back.”

未等凌萧想出什么,皇帝便留下一句话带着小李子离开了。

Not waiting for Ling Xiao to figure it out, the Emperor left with Xiao Lizi in tow.

小李子离去前还悄悄看了凌萧一眼,那一眼透露的绝对不是什么好的讯息。

Xiao Lizi sneakily gave Ling Xiao a glance before he left, what the glance showed wasn’t anything good at all.

凌萧心下讶然,心脏不规则的跳动,带着恐慌。

With an astounded mind, and irregularly jumping heart, Ling Xiao panicked.

皇帝在拒绝和自己交谈……

The Emperor was refusing to discuss it with him…

为什么?

Why?

凌萧心里越发的不安,这个皇帝是越来越让人看不懂了!

Ling Xiao became more uneasy, this Emperor was becoming more and more unreadable!

凌萧忐忑不安了两天,皇帝却再也没有过来看过他,只是赏赐了他一堆的补品,天天叫太医查看他的伤势。

Ling Xiao laid restlessly for two days, but the Emperor never came to look at him again. He merely bestowed him a pile of tonics and called the imperial physician to look at his injury everyday.

而凌萧本就伤得不重,养了两天后,伤都快好得差不多了。

In the first place, Ling Xiao’s injury wasn’t serious. So after nursing it for two days, it was almost completely healed.

伤快好了,本来希冀见到皇帝的凌萧就不敢见皇帝了,他怕自己胯下的秘密难保,凌萧望着自己的身下,将双腿往里缩了缩,纠结的咬唇。

Since his injury was healed, Ling Xiao who originally wanted to see the Emperor didn’t dare to see him again. He was afraid he was unable to hide the secret below, and he looked down his own lower body, pulling back his legs and bit his lips in confusion.

莫绮没死,实在不甘心就这样离宫!

Mo Qi isn’t dead yet, he really isn’t reconciled to leave the palace just like this!

凌萧在自己宫里踱步,最后做了一个决定。

Ling Xiao paced around in his own palace, and finally, made a decision.

一个最坏的决定……

The worst decision he could make…

冷宫一如既往的破旧,此时是亥时,踩踏在横生野草的院落,凌萧只能借助月光看清里面的景象。

The Cold Palace was as shabby as before and overgrown with weeds in the courtyard. It was around 10 PM, so Ling Xiao could only borrow the light from the moonlight to clearly see the scene inside.

TL Note: Hai shi (9 – 11 PM) I really hate these ancient times…  

宫殿极大,却荒无人烟,空荡荡的一阵阵阴风吹过,让人不寒而栗。

The palace was extremely large, yet it was desolated and uninhabited. A cold wind blew though the empty place, causing people to shiver with fear.

这么大的院落,却没有半点灯火,也不知莫绮究竟藏在了哪个角落。

Such a large courtyard yet not even a single fire for light, he really doesn’t know where Mo Qi would be at.

凌萧摸了摸腰间的匕首,冷下了目光,这一次他一定要为自己报仇!

Ling Xiao touched the dagger on his waist, his sight cold. He really needed to take revenge for himself this time!

突然,旁边断断续续传来了交谈声,凌萧一愣,猫着身子凑近了看。

But suddenly, some conversation sounds could be heard from the side and Ling Xiao was surprised, but he hid himself and approached to take a look.

夜色下,只隐隐约约看得见两个人影,其中一人身材窈窕,月光下看得清她身着破旧的粉裙,这个身影凌萧一辈子都不会忘记,是莫绮!

Under the dim light of the night, he could only faintly see two figures. One of the figures was sweet and fair, wearing a shabby pink dress under the moonlight. This was a figure Ling Xiao will never forget in this lifetime, it was Mo Qi!

莫绮身边还有一人,那人穿着一身白衣,头上包着白色的头巾,身上坠着金片,虽然看不清面容,但这样的异国服饰,凌萧能想到的只有一人——傅禹君。

By Mo Qi’s side was another person, that person was dressed in white, his head covered in a white turban while gold pieces hung on his body. Although he couldn’t see his face, this kind of foreign clothing could only make Ling Xiao think up of one person– Fu Yujun.

而此时,傅禹君正站在莫绮对面与莫绮交谈……

And right now, Fu Yujun was standing across Mo Qi and chatting with her.

他们怎么还是搞到一起了!

Why are they still able to get together!

凌萧吐血。

Ling Xiao spat blood.

上辈子,傅禹君一直在追求莫绮是没错!

In his past life, it was true that Fu Yujun kept chasing Mo Qi!

但是凌萧知道那是因为莫绮的绝色容貌还有装出来的温软性子,以及那一支剪影舞!

But Ling Xiao knew that it was because of Mo Qi’s remarkable beauty and her false gentle character along with the silhouette dance!

这一辈子,凌萧使劲捣乱,已经让莫绮和傅禹君没有了什么交集,这傅禹君怎么还是和莫绮搅和在了一起。

In this life, Ling Xiao did all he could to cause trouble, and made it so that Mo Qi and Fu Yujun would not have any interactions. Yet, why is this Fu Yujun still mixing with Mo Qi?

就在凌萧疑惑之际,远处的两人已经抱在了一起,举止亲密。

Just while Ling Xiao was in doubt, the two people in the distant were already embracing each other, their manner extremely intimate.

卧槽!

Holy sh*t!

凌萧在心里爆了一句粗口,他不过躺了两日,这两人进步神速!

Ling Xiao cursed in his mind, he had only laid on the bed for two days, how could the two of them progress at such lightning speed!

莫绮的玛丽苏光环果然强大。

Mo Qi’s Mary Sue Halo really is strong!

凌萧咬牙,这样他的复仇又会遭到阻碍,必须快点解决!

Ling Xiao gritted his teeth, if it’s like this, his revenge will suffer another obstruction, he has to hurry and settle this!

凌萧握拳,远处的两人搂在一起仍然在说着什么,凌萧听不清楚,只得靠近一些。

Ling Xiao clenched his fist while the two people in the distant were still talking to about something to each other. Ling Xiao was unable to hear it clearly, so he had no choice but to go closer.

但他刚一动,那边傅禹君就有所察觉一般推开了莫绮,眼睛直盯向凌萧所在的地方。

But when he only just moved, Fu Yujun seemed to have sensed it and pushed away Mo Qi, eyeing the place where Ling Xiao was at.

凌萧一惊,僵硬得一动不敢动,眼睛紧紧的盯着傅禹君。

Startled, Ling Xiao did not dare to move at all and stared closely at Fu Yujun.

傅禹君一步步朝他走来,脚步却异常的缓慢,似乎在衡量躲在暗处的人或者是其他什么事物的伤害力。

Fu Yujun walked step by step closer to him slowly, like he was examining the power of the person or thing that was hiding.

凑近凌萧十步之内,凌萧已经能清晰的听见傅禹君脚踩踏在野草上,发出的悉索响声,他心跳如雷,头冒虚汗,手悄悄的握紧了匕首。

When he was ten steps away from Ling Xiao, Ling Xiao could already clearly hear the sound of the grass being trampled by Fu Yujun. His heartbeat was like thunder as sweat dotted his head, his hand quietly gripped the dagger.

脑子也在极速的运转,但此时此刻,他想不出任何应对的法子,傅禹君武功与兰蔚不相上下,脑子却比兰蔚灵活得多,落在他手里,凌萧觉得自己没有任何逃掉的机会。

His mind was quickly working, but at this moment he could not think of anything. Fu Yujun and Lan Wei were about the same in martial arts, but his mind was much more nimble than Lan Wei’s. If he were to fall into his hands, then Ling Xiao felt that there would not be any opportunity for him to escape.

难道他就要这样被抓住,让这对狗男女灭口了吗?

Could it be that he will just be caught like this and silenced by the couple that’s having an affair?

“唔……”正当凌萧这般想着,突然背后伸出一只手捂住了凌萧的嘴,拉着他往一边的躲去。

“Wu…” Just when Ling Xiao was thinking of that, his mouth was suddenly covered from behind by a hand and pulled aside to a hiding place.

凌萧被吓得瞪圆了眼,心脏几乎停住了跳动,背后的人出现没有一点响声!让凌萧毫无防备!

Ling Xiao was so frightened that his eyes went wide and his heart was jumping nonstop. The person behind him didn’t make any sound! Ling Xiao was completely unable to guard against it!

凌萧双手紧紧抓着背后那人捂着自己嘴的手,惊恐让呼吸变得粗重,眼睛直视的地方是他刚刚呆过的地方,此时,那里正站着四处查看的傅禹君,凌萧的汗水顺着脸颊滴落了下来。

Ling Xiao grabbed at the person behind him that was covering his mouth, his fright caused his breathing to become rough and heavy. But his eyes were looking at the place where he had just been, which was where Fu Yujun was standing and looking now. Ling Xiao’s sweat flowed down him cheek.

傅禹君并没有查看多久,见那处无人,虽然面带着疑惑却没有执着的搜寻,只是回身与莫绮说了一句什么,就转身快速的离开了冷宫,而莫绮在傅禹君离开后,也俨然回头进了房间。

Fu Yujun did not examine it too long since he saw that there wasn’t anyone there. Though he was now wearing a doubtful face, he didn’t bother to search any longer and went back to go say something to Mo Qi before departing the Cold Palace quickly. Mo Qi also turned around back to her own room after Fu Yujun left.

凌萧心里悄然松了口气,这才发现身上已然被吓出了一身的冷汗。

Ling Xiao quietly sighed in relief and then noticed that his whole body was filled with cold sweat.

眼见着两人分别,背后的人松开了对凌萧的钳制,凌萧立马转头去看来人。

Seeing that the two people have separated and left, the person behind Ling Xiao also released him. Ling Xiao immediately turned to look at who it was behind him,

来人一身蓝衣罩身,面容稚嫩,神情憔悴,双眼凹陷,眼中布满血丝,头发凌乱,狼狈万分,但这狼狈的模样却掩盖不住凌萧对他的熟悉。

A person dressed in all blue, his appearance was young, but he looked haggard, his eyes were sunken and bloodshot, his hair was messy and cutted a very sorry figure. But this sorry figure could not hide the familiarity of it to Ling Xiao.

“兰蔚。”凌萧冷笑着,唤了一声,身体摆出戒备的姿态,这刚离虎穴又入狼窝,今夜他出门忘记看黄历了!

“Lan Wei.” Ling Xiao sneered and called once as he went on guard. He had just exited the tiger cave and walked into a wolf nest, he forgot to check things before he left tonight!

兰蔚不屑的瞧了凌萧一眼,转身往一旁走去,一副并不想搭理凌萧的模样。

Lan Wei glanced at Ling Xiao in disdain before turning around and walking away, an appearance of not wanting to deal with Ling Xiao.

凌萧见状,疑惑的眨眼,转头看向兰蔚的背影,却见他双肩微垮,显得落寞而悲伤。

Upon seeing this, Ling Xiao blinked in doubt and turned his head to follow Lan Wei’s back figure. He could only see that Lan Wei’s shoulders were slightly down, looking lonely and sad.

凌萧猛然想起刚刚莫绮与傅禹君相搂的画面,心中不由明了。

Ling Xiao thought of the scene of Mo Qi and Fu Yujun hug, and he understood what happened.

这叫自作自受!

This is called reaping what you sown!

凌萧讽笑,眼瞧着兰蔚没有搭理他的意思,他悄然的往后退,正要逃离之际,兰蔚却突然回头,伸手一把拉过了凌萧,另一只手夺过了凌萧手中的匕首。

Ling Xiao mockingly smiled, seeing that Lan Wei did not plan to do anything to him, he quietly retreated backwards. Just when he was about to run out, Lan Wei suddenly turned around and reach out one hand to pull Ling Xiao while the other one grabbed the dagger in Ling Xiao’s hand.

“带着匕首,这么晚来到冷宫,你是要做什么?”兰蔚轻瞥着匕首,目光幽幽的望着凌萧问道。

“Carrying a dagger and coming to the Cold Palace this night at night, what are you trying to do?” Lan Wei gave the dagger a short glance, his gaze indistinct as he stared at Ling Xiao and asked.

  1. Ah, a teaser….. since the links are open I’m so tempted to go to all the open links with no chapters and post generic comments like “thanks for the chapter!”, “omg! That was amazing!” or “Woah there, I can’t believe he did that!”

    Omg!! I’m so curious now too!!! (Well, am always curious about this novel~) but I wonder if this is just Fu Yujun’s way of seducing MoQi so that she’ll tell him who the dancer was, there’s no way he’ll fall for MoQi after seeing her true self when she yelled at Ling Xiao (or did he??) And the emperor! I’m as confuse as LingXiao xD this cliffhanger is going to be my suffering!

    Thank you sooooo much for the fast update! ❤❤❤
