RIP SnowTime 2017. I hate life orz
Chapter 39: Secret Exposed
Ling Xiao confirmed over and over again that he did not mishear, and his face couldn’t help but darken. He hastily turned away his head away to escape Fu Yujun’s grasp.
Fu Yujun raised an eyebrow, and faintly felt disappointed as he withdrew his hand: “You can’t… give me a chance?”
A foreign prince, handsome and bright, using a loving gaze to look at him, an absolutely infatuated look. If he himself weren’t a man, if Ling Xiao didn’t know what kind of man Fu Yujun was from his past life, he might have really been moved by his expression.
But it was a pity, in his past life, Ling Xiao has completely understood Fu Yujun.
This man’s natural disposition is romantic, as long as there is a woman that looks somewhat good, he can assume a deeply emotional appearance and speak the sweetest words of love in the word. It will look like he has place his heart in his hand and can send it to his beloved person in the blink of an eye.
However, behind his romantic ways is fickleness, when he is interested in them, he will be afraid of dropping his lover that is in his palms, but once his interest fades, his former lover will be abandoned by him like a shoe.
His romantic ways and fickleness are infamous in Shao Country.
It was also because of this, in his past life, Ling Xiao had tried over and over again to prevent this prince and Mo Qi from meeting. He was afraid that Mo Qi would be cheated by this guy. But luckily, Mo Qi’s heart was mostly with the Emperor’s and didn’t cause this trouble for him in his past life.
Their negotiation with this Shao Country Prince isn’t too deep either.
It’s just that, back then, Mo Qi’s remarkable beauty as well as that silhouette dance caused this Shao Country Prince to often tangle with her, Ling Xiao also used quite a bit of effort to deal with him before.
He didn’t expect that in this lifetime, this Fu Yujun would even be able to get it up for a man! Rather, not even a man, but he can even lift it up for a eunuch! Ling Xiao’s eyes twitched a little..
He understand that this Shao Country prince was just interested for the moment, amenable to coaxing but not coercion, Ling Xiao took a deep breath to push down his anger and slowly, quietly said: “Prince, you don’t need to play a joke on this servant.”
TL Note: Meaning he goes for easy things, not hard things.
Looking at the small eunuch in front of him, whose face turned from clear to black, then from black to red and finally red to clear. It was truly a wonderful sight, causing Fu Yujun to “pffftt” laugh out.
He really wanted to tease this little servant some more, however, this place was the imperial palace of Mu Country, he cannot go too far. With those thoughts, Fu Yujun smiled and no longer talked to Ling Xiao, he merely lovingly stared at Ling Xiao, just like before.
Ling Xiao couldn’t suppress it and his eyelid kept twitching, his gaze shifted back a bit: “Prince, didn’t you come to ask what this servant wanted?”
Fu Yujun nodded, and smiled: “You thought of something?”
Ling Xiao went silent, he wanted to say yes, but he was in a rather dangerous situation right now, it is a place to ask for Shao Country’s Prince for help.
However, Ling Xiao had a matter he needed to confirm.
Before his fainted, he had faintly heard that Mo Qi was already executed by the Emperor.
But he didn’t know if it was true or not…
Ling Xiao felt he had to clarify things, his sight went back to Fu Yujjn and he mulled for a bit before asking: “Before that, can I ask Prince a few questions?”
Fu Yujun raised an eyebrow in interest: “Let me hear them.”
“Mo Qi… Xiu Girl Mo, what happened?”
Fu Yujun looked down when he heard that, going deep in thought about something. After a while, he finally looked back up and answered: “Dead, dead on the Emperor’s orders.”
Ling Xiao’s eyes brightened, the bit of cheerfulness that leaked out did not escape Fu Yujun’s eyes. Fu Yujun looked at Ling Xiao thoughtfully.
This Ling Xiao has hatred against Mo Qi?
“Then where is her body at?”
Just while he thought of that, he heard Ling Xiao ask the next question and Fu Yujun propped his jaw, his gaze considering it for a moment and smiling: “This question, well, you shouldn’t ask me but the Mu Country’s Emperor. He was the one who order her death, the handling of her body and what not are also his problem.”
Ling Xiao heard and his eyes flashed. Fu Yujun’s words were said freely and indifferently like the wind, as if the person being assassinated back then wasn’t himself. As if Mo Qi who had been executed also had no relation with him.
Ling Xiao frowned, a hint of doubt within him so he probingly asked: “That, Prince… you don’t have any objection to it?”
“Objection?” Fu Yujun laughed as if nothing had happened: “The Mu Country Emperor helped me get rid of a woman that was plotting my death, I naturally only have heartfelt thanks. From here on out, I have nothing to care about.”
“You… didn’t you like her a lot?” Ling Xiao continued to probe him out.
Ling Xiao could remember that although this Fu Yujun was loose (romantic), if there was a woman who has his interest is being liked by him, then he will meet the standard required of a lover and do all he can to be good to the other in every way possible. This is also the reason why although he is romantic and fickle, he still receives a lot of woman’s love in Shao Country.
And Mo Qi had Fu Yujun’s heart, even if she had schemed against him, she wasn’t really injuring him. So her death shouldn’t make Fu Yujun be so unconcerned about it, at minimum, the place where her corpse is, Fu Yujun should know about it.
Fu Yujun heard it and seemed to have heard some kind of joke and sneered at it. But his words did not deny his like toward Mo Qi: “No matter how much I like her, it is not as important as one’s life. Am I not right?”
Ling Xiao nodded at those words, life is after all the most important. Fu Yujun in his past life had given him an impression, the other is romantic and fickle most of the time, very unruly. But now, it looks like he is also someone who cherishes life.
Ling Xiao sighed a long, drawn out sigh, knowing from Fu Yujun’s tone that he couldn’t not obtain any news on what he wanted, so Ling Xiao also no longer bothered himself over it.
It’s just that, he was thinking, whether he wants to put forward his request before Mo Qi has been determined to really be dead…
Ling Xiao covered the wound on his chest, frowning at a loss.
This time’s injury is much more serious than the ones before.
Only doing this much and he felt his strength completely drain away. His body became heavier, even if he leaned against the bedframe, he was still unsteady…
Ling Xiao wanted to look down and check himself, but when he lowered his head, his eyes widen.
His wound has already been treated, his upper body was wrapped with layers of gauzes, but on top of the gauze was a brand new white clothing.
It wasn’t his white clothes that has a hole torn through it and was covered in blood, but rather, a brand new set of chinese gown.
His clothes were changed before!
