第34章 劲爆劲爆 – Eh, this title is hard to TL. It’s a double~

Chapter 34: Strength Bursting Explosively

凌萧用另一只没有被钳制住的手去抢匕首,抢了两次却不得成功,他颇为恼怒的瞪着兰蔚道:“这不关你事吧?”

Ling Xiao used his other hand that wasn’t grabbed to try and get back his dagger, but after trying twice and not succeeding, he looked rather resentfully at Lan Wei: “This has nothing to do with you right?”

“倒是你兰蔚公子,你才是最不该出现在这里的人吧。”凌萧意有所指的说道。

“Actually, Young Master Lan Wei, aren’t you the one that shouldn’t appear here the most?” Ling Xiao in an accusing manner.

兰蔚闻言冷下了脸,用力抓紧了凌萧的手腕,凌萧一声呼痛,皱起了眉头。

Lan Wei’s face went cold at his words and firmly grabbed Ling Xiao’s wrist. Ling Xiao cried out in pain, his brows creased.

“你现在看不清形势吗?你可是在本公子手里!”

“Can you not see your situation right now? You are in this Young Master’s hands.”

凌萧讽笑:“我能从你手里逃脱一次,就能逃脱第二次,我能让皇上惩罚你宰相府一次,就能让皇上惩罚你们第二次!”

Ling Xiao mockingly smiled: “If I could run away from your hands once, I can do so again. If I could get the Emperor to punish the Prime Minister Household once, I can get the Emperor to do so a second time!”

“你!”兰蔚双眼冒火,匕首抵在了凌萧的脖颈上。

“You!” Lan Wei’s eyes burned with rage, pressing the dagger against Ling Xiao’s neck.

“……你可想清楚啊,我可是皇上在意的人,要是我没了,皇上那里你自己想想吧……”凌萧强装镇定。

“…You need to think carefully. I am someone the Emperor cares about, if I were to die, the Emperor would just have to think a bit…” Ling Xiao maintained a strong front of calmness.

不说这个还好,一说这个,兰蔚就想起宰相府因为自己而受到牵连,因为面前这个人而让自己在皇帝面前暴露!

Not saying that was better, when he heard of this, Lan Wei’s remembered how the Prime Minister Household was implicated because of him. It was because the man in front of him revealed it to the Emperor!

兰蔚瞪着凌萧,眼里流露出恨意,但除了恨意,兰蔚的眼中还有一些凌萧看不懂的情愫,这些都融合在兰蔚的眼中,让兰蔚的眼宛如漆黑的浓墨一般,连带着眼神都高深莫测了起来。

Lan Wei glared at Ling Xiao, his eyes showing hatred, but besides that was also sentiment that Ling Xiao was unable to understand. These all mixed within Lan Wei’s eyes, causing his eyes to be pitch-blank and dense like ink, looking much more profound and mysterious.

凌萧眨了眨眼,以为自己看错了,单纯自傲的兰蔚也会有这么复杂的眼神?

Ling Xiao thought he saw wrong and blinked his eyes. The simple and arrogant Lan Wei would also have such a complicated expression?

待凌萧想去细看,兰蔚却率先放开了他,瞥开了头。

When Ling Xiao wanted to take a closer look, Lan Wei let go of him first and turned his head away.

凌萧一愣,就听得兰蔚冷哼道:“你也就会这一招。”

Looking distractedly at him, he heard Lan Wei coldly snort and say to him: “Even you know that move.”

他把玩着匕首,随手就将匕首扔到了凌萧的怀里:“你不说本公子也猜得到,你是来杀莫绮的。”

He fiddled with the dagger in his hand, then threw it back to Ling Xiao: “Even if you don’t tell me, this Young Master can still guess it. You came to kill Mo Qi.”

匕首泛着寒光,突然落在了自己的怀里,惊得凌萧弹跳了两下,确定自己没有被锋利的匕首划伤,凌萧这才胆战心惊的握住匕首的把柄。

The dagger that glinted with a cold light suddenly fell back to Ling Xiao, caused him to jump twice from fear. After confirming that he wasn’t injured by the sharp dagger, Ling Xiao gripped the dagger handle, scared witless.

兰蔚见状,讥笑了一声:“连把匕首都握不住,还想杀人?”

Lan Wei sneered at the scene: “You can’t even hold onto a dagger tightly, and you want to kill someone?”

凌萧被讥讽了,不由抬眼瞪向兰蔚:“只要兰蔚公子不插手,这剑我便刺得下去。”

Being mocked, Ling Xiao raised his eyes and glared at Lan Wei: “As long as Young Master Lan Wei does not involved yourself, then I will be able to stab down this dagger.”

兰蔚嗤笑了一声:“本公子劝你想清楚,皇上最容不下搞小动作的人。”

Lan Wei scoffed at him: “This Young Master advises you to think clearly. The Emperor hates people who goes behind his back.”

凌萧闻言,面色怪异,这兰蔚莫非是在劝他?

Ling Xiao’s face turned strange at his words, was Lan Wei trying to persuade him?

不,不可能!

Im-impossible!

兰蔚和他仇怨甚多,怎么可能会劝他?

The hatred between the two was deep, so how could Lan Wei try to persuade him?

兰蔚的目的不过是,让他死心不伤害莫绮罢了。

Lan Wei’s purpose was just to get him to give up and not injure Mo Qi.

都这种时候了,兰蔚还放不下莫绮。

It’s already like this, yet Lan Wei is still unwilling to let go of Mo Qi.

凌萧忍不住冷嘲:“心爱的女人都跟别人好上了,兰蔚公子还想着护着她,该说你大爱无私呢,还是说你心真大呢!”

He couldn’t bear it and coldly ridiculed him: “Your beloved woman has already hooked up with another person, yet Young Master Lan Wei is still protecting her. Should I say your love is great and selfless, or should I say your heart is really big!”

兰蔚闻言,恨恨的盯向凌萧。

Lan Wei heard that and glared at Ling Xiao in hate.

凌萧被盯的一顿,却并没有住嘴的意思,他讽刺道:“哦,对了,那莫绮老早就没拿你当回事嘛,兰蔚公子只不过是单方面的甘之如饴,啧啧,堂堂宰相公子任人这般作践,果然是天生犯贱呢!”

Being glared at but not told to shut up, he continued to mock him: “Oh, that’s right, Mo Qi has never taken you seriously since the beginning. Young Master Lan Wei was merely just enduring hardships for her glady. Tsk tsk, the great Prime Minister’s Young Master was being used like this, you really are a natural-born offender!”

“你懂什么!”兰蔚怒吼,抽出手中的佩剑,将凌萧困在墙壁与自己之间:“我曾经以为她救了我……”

“What do you understand!” Lan Wei snarled, taking the sword in his hand trapped Ling Xiao between him and the wall: “I once believed that she saved me…”

说到这,兰蔚猛然住了嘴,复杂的目光再一次落到了凌萧的身上。

Speaking to that point, Lan Wei suddenly shut his mouth, his complicated gaze landing on Ling Xiao.

凌萧望着近在咫尺的剑锋,心有余悸的摸了摸脖颈,庆幸脖子离剑锋还有段距离。

Ling Xiao looked at the sword point that was almost within reach and rubbed his neck due to lingering fears. He was glad that his neck was far from the sword point.

凌萧的小动作被兰蔚尽收眼底,他看着这样的凌萧,怒气被提起又煞时偃息了下去,他突然觉得有些好笑,这人就真这么怕死吗?那当初他为何能不顾生死的……

Ling Xiao’s small movement was seen by Lan Wei, seeing Ling Xiao like this, his anger was cut short and his breathing calmed down. He found it somewhat humorous, was this person really that afraid of death? Then why did he back then, regardless of life or death…

似是想到了什么,兰蔚抿紧了唇,刚刚轻松一些的心情复而又沉重了起来,他的脑海里浮现出了一人,这人让他得知了真相,也让他伤的遍体鳞伤……

Lan Wei seemed to have thought of something and he pursed his lips, his mood that had just lightened went back down again. A single person appeared in his mind, this person helped him learn the truth, but also left injuries all over him…

“兰蔚,你以为我为什么和你好?不就是因为你是宰相的儿子,能帮我进宫吗!”

“Lan Wei, do you know why I was nice to you? Wasn’t it just because you were the Prime Minister’s son and would be able to help me get into the palace!”

记忆中,莫绮那扭曲的面孔在脑海里无限的放大,兰蔚拽紧了拳头。

In his memory, Mo Qi’s twisted face magnified. Lan Wei clenched his fist.

两天前,兰蔚必须离开京城,因放下不下莫绮而潜入宫中希望带走她,但得到的却是这样的回答……

Two days ago, Lan Wei had to leave the capital. But he was unable to let Mo Qi go and wished for her to come with him, only to get this kind of reply…

“可你现在有什么?你已经是平民了!还被逐出了京城,这样的你凭什么带我走,又凭什么要我跟你走!你能给我什么?!我要的荣华富贵、万人之上你能给我吗?!”

“But what do you have now? You are now a common person! And you’re expelled out of the capital! With you like this, what kind of ability do you have to take me with you? And why should I even go with you! What can you give me? I want a high position and great wealth, tens and thousands of people are above you, just what can you give me?!”

莫绮绝美的容貌在记忆深处显得如此的丑陋,兰蔚当时几乎不敢置信自己所听到的,这是他心爱的女人,一直舍命帮助的女人,就连最后离开也不忍抛下的女人……

Mo Qi’s beautiful appearance looked extremely ugly in his memory, Lan Wei did not dare to believe what he heard back then. This was his beloved woman, the woman he risked his life to help, so much that he couldn’t even bear to let her go when he was leaving…

“绮绮,你在说什么啊?”兰蔚记得那时候他的声音都是颤抖的,抖得几乎不成字句。

“Qi Qi, what are you saying?” Lan Wei remembered how his voice was trembling back them, trembling so much he could hardly form words.

“你接近我……只是因为我是宰相的儿子?”

“You approached me… because I was the Prime Minister’s son?”

“不,不可能。”兰蔚不相信:“咱们相识之初,你并不知道我的身份,可你还是不顾性命的救了我,不分日夜的照顾伤患的我,这样的你不可能……”

“Im-impossible.” Lan Wei could not believe it: “When we first met each other, you did not know my identity at all. But you still saved me and took care of an injured person like my day and night. Someone like you, this is impossible…”

莫绮不屑的打断了兰蔚:“你还真相信那是我啊!”

Mo Qi interrupted him, her tone filled with disdain: “You still believe that’s me!”

“你不过是醒来看见的第一个人是我而已,就认定了我是救命恩人,我见你样子好玩也就应承了,实际上,你忘了,当初在郊野,可不仅仅有你我……还有……”

“It’s just that the first person you saw when you woke up was me, that’s all. You believed that I was your benefactor, and I felt you were amusing so I said I was. In fact, you forgot, at that time out in the countryside, there wasn’t just you and me… there was also…”

凌萧!

Ling Xiao!

经过莫绮的点醒,兰蔚默默在心里接话。

Woken up by Mo Qi, Lan Wei silently took the words.

面上已然是一片惊愕之色。

But his face was filled with shock.

当初他远郊游玩,骑马不慎跌落山坡,身受重伤,昏迷了几日,一直以为是莫绮救了他,因为他醒来第一眼看见的便是莫绮一人,却忘了,后面是凌萧带着猎物回来生火,照顾他和莫绮的。

Back then, he went out to the countryside to play around. But when he wasn’t careful when he was riding his horse and fell off a slope, causing himself to be seriously injured and fainted for many days. He always believed that Mo Qi saved him, because the first person he saw was Mo Qi. Yet, he forgot that it was Ling Xiao making a fire in the back with a prey, taking care of him and Mo Qi.

“竟然是……凌萧……可他并没有告诉我……”兰蔚抖着唇,一脸的难以置信。

“It was… Ling Xiao… But he didn’t tell me…” Lan Wei’s lips trembled, his face full of disbelievement.

“他只听我的,自然不可能告诉你,是他救了你!”莫绮得意的打断了兰蔚。

“He only listens to me, so it was naturally impossible for him to tell you that it was him that saved you!” Mo Qi proudly interrupted Lan Wei.

“哦,对了,再告诉你一件事情,之后回到宰相府,你所看见的莫绮都是我装出来的,因为凌萧说你喜欢温柔的女子,我便装出温柔的模样,既然我能装出一副温柔的样子,自然跟你的甜言蜜语都是假的,只是我想利用你罢了。”

“Oh, that’s right, I’ll tell you one more thing. After you go back to the Prime Minister’s Household, everything you seen of me was acted. Ling Xiao said you liked gentle woman, so I acted out a gentle character. Since I can act out a gentle appearance, then naturally every sweet and honeyed words I told you were fake. I was merely exploiting you, that’s all.”

兰蔚不可置信,深受打击般后退了两步,心中悲愤难平,竟生生呕出了一口鲜血。

Lan Wei couldn’t believe it, the shock he received caused him to retreat two steps. Grief and indignation filled his heart and he vomited out a mouthful of blood.

“哈哈,真是有趣。”这时,黑暗中走出一人,那人包着白色的头巾,衣服上坠着金片,一身异国的打扮。

“Haha, it really is interesting.” At that time, someone appeared from the dark. That person had a white turban, gold pieces hanging from his clothes, a completely foreign style of dress.

兰蔚愕然的盯着他:“傅禹君,你怎么会在这?”

Lan Wei stared at him, stunned: “Fu Yujun, how could you be here?”

“那被逐出京城的兰蔚公子又怎么在这呢?”

“Then how could the Young Master Lan Wei who has been expelled from the capital be here?”

见兰蔚一脸被噎住的表情,傅禹君笑着摇了摇头:“我有点同情你们牧国皇帝了,竟然有这么无能的宰相和这么会惹事的宰相儿子。”

Seeing Lan Wei’s face that looked like his was being choked, Fu Yujun laughed and shook his head: “I really sympathize with your Mu Country’s Emperor, to have such an incompetent Prime Minister and a trouble-causing Prime Minister’s son.”

“你……”兰蔚想反驳,却突然发觉根本没法反驳,傅禹君说的对,他只会惹事。

“You…” Lan Wei wanted to retort, but he found that he wasn’t able to retort. Fu Yujun was right, he could only cause trouble.

兰蔚沉默的抿紧了唇,便看见傅禹君自然而然的走到了莫绮的身边,伸手揽住了莫绮的腰,兰蔚终于察觉到了不对:“你们……”

Lan Wei tighten his lips in silence and watched Fu Yujun automatically walk to Mo Qi’s side and holding Mo Qi’s waist. Lan Wei finally sensed that something wasn’t right: “You two…”

“正如你看见的那般。”傅禹君坏笑,将莫绮搂紧了一些:“这人,不日我就向牧国皇帝讨了去,你还是熄了带走她的心思,走吧。”

“Just as you see.” Fu Yujun laughed cruelly, hugging Mo Qi tighter to himself: “Soon, I will ask the Emperor of Mu Country to take this person with me. You best give up on trying to take her with you, just leave.”

“就是就是,我现在好得很,快走快走,看了碍眼。”这是记忆中,莫绮对他说的最后一句话。

“That’s right, that’s right! I am great right now, so quickly leave, quickly leave! You’re annoying.” This was Mo Qi’s final words to him in his memories.

兰蔚用力握紧拳头,微微摇头甩掉脑中不好的记忆,这两天,他没有出宫,待在冷宫盯着莫绮,看着她的一举一动,看明白了很多事,也想明白了很多事。

Lan Wei clenched his fist and slightly shook his head to shake off the bad memory. These past two days, he did not leave the palace. He stayed at the Cold Palace to watch Mo Qi, seeing her every movement, he finally saw clear a lot of things, and also understood a lot of things,

从前的自己果然太过天真。

The him from before was really too naive.

兰蔚微微闭眼,再次睁眼,目光扫过被他压制而受惊的凌萧,轻巧的将剑收了回去。

Lan Wei closed his eyes, then opened them once more. His sight swept by to where Ling Xiao was pressured and frightened by him and nimbly took back his sword.

凌萧眼见着那佩剑泛着冷光离他远去,心中讶然。

Seeing that sword that was emitting a cold light going far from him, Ling Xiao was astounded.

被他故意激怒的兰蔚竟然这么简单放过自己?

The Lan Wei who he deliberately infuriated would unexpectedly let him off so easily?

凌萧确定了,确定了兰蔚这是在容忍他,但是为什么?

Ling Xiao was certain now, certain that Lan Wei was tolerating him, but why?

兰蔚将剑入了剑鞘,站在凌萧的面前,表情微显落寞,凌萧皱眉,只觉得眼前的兰蔚陌生非常。

Lan Wei placed the sword back into its scabbard and stood in front of Ling Xiao, his expression lonely. Ling Xiao frowned, he could only feel that the Lan Wei in front of him was very strange.

“别做蠢事,皇上容忍不下任何欺骗他的存在,即使这个存在在他心里很重要,宰相府就是一个例子。”

“Don’t do anything foolish. The Emperor never tolerates any existence that deceives him, even if that existence is very important in his heart. The Prime Minister Household is one of those examples.”

“……”面对兰蔚突而转变的语重心长,凌萧不知道说什么好。

“……” Facing Lan Wei that suddenly turned sincere and earnest, Ling Xiao really didn’t know what to say.

“朝堂之上,除了宰相就属吏部尚书的权利最大,多数官员依附于他,而宰相府是用来平衡他的存在,如果宰相没了,吏部尚书的权利势必更容易扩大……”

“Within the court, besides the Prime Minister, the High Official of the Ministry of Appointment has the most power. Most of the officials adhere to him, and the Prime Minister Household is used to balance his existence. If the Prime Minister is dead, the High Official of the Ministry of Appointments will easily expand his power…”

说到这里,兰蔚停顿了下来,凌萧却恍然大悟,平衡朝中势力的宰相不在了,朝中势力势必失衡,这个当头撤销宰相是不明智的,皇帝也知道,所以那时候凌萧总感觉到,皇帝一直在护着宰相府。

Speaking to this point, Lan Wei stopped. Ling Xiao suddenly realized, the Prime Minister that maintained the power balance wasn’t here anymore, the power in the court will be unbalanced. Revoking the Prime Minister isn’t something good, the Emperor knew this as well. That’s why Ling Xiao always felt that the Emperor was protecting the Prime Minister Household.

原来是这样……皇帝原来是这样想的……

So it was like this… so the Emperor was thinking of that…

但是,即使是这样,最后,还是因为兰蔚和宰相一而再再而三的欺瞒……

However, even if it’s like this, in the end, it was still because of Lan Wei’s and Prime Minister’s consecutive lies…

兰蔚自嘲一笑:“宰相府的下场你也看到了,若是你继续这样下去,你的下场不会比宰相府好。”

Lan Wei mockingly laughed at himself: “You have already seen the Prime Minister Household’s ending, if you continued to do this, your end will not be much better than the Prime Minister Household.

凌萧心中怪异,以前的兰蔚会说这些吗?应该说,以前的兰蔚懂这么多吗?最重要的是,以前的兰蔚会苦口婆心的劝他吗?

Ling Xiao felt strange in his heart. Would the Lan Wei from before say these things? He should say, would the Lan Wei from before understand so much? The most important one was, would the Lan Wei from before persuade him so patiently?

凌萧疑惑万分,面上却不显,兰蔚握紧了手中的佩剑,脑中浮现出一个女子的影像,他干涩而艰难的道:“莫绮……早晚会自作自受,皇上心里什么都清楚,也自然会有定夺,你根本不用插手。”

Ling Xiao was very suspicious, but it didn’t show on his face. Lan Wei tightly gripped his sword, the image of a certain woman appearing in his mind. His voice was dry and hard as he said: “Mo Qi… she will sooner or later reap what she sown. The Emperor is clear on everything and would naturally make a decision. You don’t need to personally get involved.”

说着,兰蔚意有所指的瞥向了凌萧怀里的匕首,却一眼瞄见他腰间露出的一角纸张,他皱眉疑惑,手已经伸了过去。

Speaking to that, Lan Wei pointed at Ling Xiao’s dagger, then glanced at the paper that was exposed by his waist. He frowned in doubt, his hand already stretching out.

凌萧只觉眼前一晃,腰间早准备好的信笺便被抢了去。

Ling Xiao only felt that the image before his eyes flashed and the letter he prepared was taken from his waist.

凌萧心中一惊,面色慌张,忙伸手去抢,兰蔚躲过,一手束缚住他的双手,将他压在墙上,另一只手打开了纸张。

Startled and flustered, Ling Xiao hurriedly tried to get it back but Lan Wei evaded him. With one hand, he restricted his hands and pressed him against the wall, his other hand opening the letter.

看完信笺,兰蔚面色青黑。

After he finished reading the letter, Lan Wei’s face was greenish-black.

  9. Thanks for the chapter! I wonder if the paper is supposed to be Mo Qi’s “suicide letter” or Ling Xiao’s last words to the Emperor before escapes from the palace XD. Maybe Ling Xiao wanted to kill Mo Qi and immediately flee the palace.

    Thanks a lot for that chapter. Is it really that surprising that Mo qui didn t rescue Lan Wei? Mo qui just thinks of herself, so of course if somebody rescued him it was Ling Xiao. Mo qui seemed to be accustomed to use Ling Xiao s abilities to the fullest.
