第40章 邀请皇帝

Chapter 40: Inviting the Emperor

他的衣服被换过了!

His clothes were changed before!

意识到这点,凌萧浑身一震,霎时冷汗袭袭,只觉头脑一阵发昏,眼前一阵发黑,他想世界末日来临恐怕也不过如此了。

Once he was aware of this point, Ling Xiao shuddered and cold sweat dripped from him. His head felt faint and a burst of darkness appeared before his eyes, he feared that the end of the world would only amount to this much.

凌萧深受打击般摇摇欲坠,一直注意着他的傅禹君忙起身扶住了他,见凌萧面色难看,傅禹君收敛了笑意,一脸担忧的望着凌萧道:“不舒服吗?快躺下。”

Experiencing the blow, Ling Xiao was on the verge of collapsing, Fu Yujun who had been paying attention to him the whole time hurried supported him. Seeing Ling Xiao’s ugly complexion, the smile on Fu Yujun’s face also disappeared, looking worried at Ling Xiao: “Do you feel unwell? Hurry and lie down.”

凌萧摇了摇头,伸手紧紧的握住了傅禹君的手,宛如这是一根救命稻草一般,哑声道:“皇子,你进来之时,可有看见谁帮我换的衣物?”

Ling Xiao shook his head and gripped Fu Yujun’s hand tightly like it was his lifeline, hoarsely asking: “Prince, when you came in, did you see who helped me change clothes?”

他连“奴才”都忘了说,是真的慌了。

He had even forgot to address himself as “this servant”, he really lost his head.

傅禹君听了这个不着边际的问题,心中却有些疑惑,他不由探究一般望向凌萧,但凌萧却目光希冀,一脸期待的望着自己,傅禹君内心一震。

Fu Yujun heard this irrelevant question and felt some doubt, he probingly looked at Ling Xiao, but Ling Xiao’s gaze was just full of hope as he looked at him. Fu Yujun’s heart shook.

想要探究的心霎时消散。

His desire to probe dissipated in a split second.

这个小奴才,仰着头望着自己,目光涟漪,眼神无辜,这模样直映入自己的内心深处,让自己的心砰然跳动。

This little servant, with his head tilted and looking at him, his gaze rippling and so innocent, this look shone into the deepest part of his heart and caused it to throb.

那淡色的唇染上苍白带了些病态,嘴巴张合留了一丝缝隙,透着异样的蛊惑,傅禹君强压下想要欺身上前,一品芬香的冲动,颇为难堪的撇开头,清咳了一声道:“谁帮你换的衣服很重要吗?”

Those pale lips looked somewhat morbid, the small gap between them was also somewhat bewitching. Fu Yujun pushed down the urge of wanting to take advantage of the other, a really strong urge. He looked away in embarrassment, clearing his throat with a cough: “Is it very important to know who changed your clothes?”

说着,傅禹君嗤笑了一声,他居然为了掩饰自己的邪念,说了这么一句蹩足的接话。

After saying that line, Fu Yujun scoffed, to hide his evil desire, he had even spoke such a weak line.

这些小事有什么好重要的,他无奈的想。

What importance would those little things have. He helpless thought.

谁知,面前的凌萧却郑重的点下了头。

Who would have thought that the Ling Xiao in front of him would seriously nod his head.

“……”

“……”

傅禹君讶然,眼中有着不解。

Fu Yujun was astounded, puzzlement in his eyes.

但见凌萧一脸的苍白,对此事很是焦心急切的模样,傅禹君不由认真了起来。

But seeing Ling Xiao’s pale face and rather anxious look toward this matter, Fu Yujun couldn’t help but also become serious.

他仔细回想,最后叹道:“我来之前,你的衣服已经换好,我并没有看见到底是谁帮你换的衣物。”

He carefully thought back and finally sighed: “Before I came, your clothes were already changed. I did not see just who changed your clothes.”

凌萧一阵失望,黯淡的敛下了眸。

Ling Xiao despaired and looked down.

“不过……”

“However…:”

听闻转折,凌萧倏然抬眼望向傅禹君,眼神清亮。

Hearing the turnaround, Ling Xiao lifted his eyes and stared at Fu Yujun, his expression bright.

方才才黯淡无神的样子,瞬间因为这句话而变得生机灵动,那双明亮的眸子泛着秋波希冀的望着自己,宛如期待着被喂养的小狗一般,令人的内心软的一塌糊涂。

His depressed appearance just now that changed to become so lively because of this word. Those bright eyes that were rippling with hope looked at him like a small puppy that was looking forward to being fed, it caused his heart to soften and collapse into a total mess.

傅禹君轻笑出声,没忍住抬手顺了顺凌萧额前的发丝道:“我虽未看见谁帮你换的衣物,但是我来之时,宫里除了奴才们并没有其他人,而且,是这两个小宫女拿着你换下的衣物从这间房出去的。”

Fu Yujun lightly laughed and raised his hand to rub Ling Xiao’s forehead, he said: “Although I did not see who changed your clothes, but when I came, besides the servants there were no one else. Furthermore, it was these two maids that took the clothes you changed out of and took it out.”

凌萧一门心思在傅禹君的话上,倒是忽略了傅禹君的动作,他随着傅禹君的目光一同看向了昏倒在床边的两个小宫女,皱起了眉头。

Ling Xiao placed all his attention onto what Fu Yujun was saying and overlooked Fu Yujun’s action. He followed along Fu Yujun’s gaze to land on the two unconscious maids by his bed and wrinkled his brow.s

傅禹君道:“她们一出门,我便点了她们的睡穴,你原先的衣物若是没差,应该还在门外。”

Fu Yujun replied: “When they walked out, I immediately hit their sleep point. If your clothing isn’t missing, it should just be outside.”

也就是说,她们还没来得及将秘密抖露出去,凌萧松了口气,这个傅禹君这次倒是做了一件好事。

In other words, they still hadn’t had the time to reveal his secret outside. Ling Xiao sighed in relief, this Fu Yujun finally done something good.

望着凌萧松了一口气的模样,傅禹君饶有所思的道:“你……这么在意谁帮你换得衣物,莫非你身上有什么秘密?”

Watching Ling Xiao’s relieved look, Fu Yujun randomly asked in interest: “You… care so much about who changed your clothes, perhaps you have some kind of secret on your body?”

傅禹君说着,目光放肆得扫过凌萧全身,宛如凌萧身上未着一物一般。

When Fu Yujun said that, his gaze swept the entirety of Ling Xiao, as if he was not wearing anything.

凌萧身子一僵,起身甩开了傅禹君的相扶,面色一整,转开了话题:“皇子,您不是问奴才想要什么吗?奴才现在告诉你……”

Ling Xiao’s body went stiff and got up to shake off Fu Yujun’s supporting hand, his face steady as he turned the subject: “Prince, didn’t you want to ask what this servant wants? This servant can tell you now…”

傅禹君闻言挑眉,倾耳听着。

Fu Yujun raised an eyebrow at that, pricking up his ears to hear it.

“第一,奴才想让这两个宫女暂时从宫里消失,麻烦您将她们带出宫一阵子。”

“One, this servant wants these two maids to disappear from the palace for a period of time, i will trouble you to take them out of the palace for a while.”

着急带出宫去?有秘密!

Anxious and want them out the palace? There’s a secret!

傅禹君望了望昏迷的两个宫女,扬眉想了想,应道:“好,没问题。”

Fu Yujun looked at the two unconscious maids and raised an eyebrow in thought, before answering: “Alright, no problem.”

“第二,您回国之时,奴才想跟您一起离开。”

“Two, when you go back home, this servant wants to leave with you.”

凌萧不能再等了,自己身上的秘密就像个不定时炸弹一样,随时可能曝光在皇帝的面前……

Ling Xiao cannot wait any longer, the secret on his body was like an unsteady time bomb, it can be exposed at any time in front of the Emperor…

傅禹君讶然:“你要跟我离开?离开这牧国的皇宫?你可想清楚了?”

Fu Yujun said in astoundment: “You want to leave with me? Leave the Mu Country’s imperial palace? Are you thinking clearly?”

凌萧点头。

Ling Xiao nodded.

小奴才认真的样子不像做假,傅禹君摸了摸下巴,好奇的问道:“那牧国的皇帝呢?虽然你现在是个奴才,但是据我所知,你若继续呆在这宫里,可将是这牧国的第一公子,你舍得下就这样走了。”

The little servant’s serious appearance did not look fake. Fu Yujun rubbed his chin, curiously asking: “Then what about the Mu Country Emperor? Although you are a servant right now, as far as I know, if you continued to stay in the palace, you would become the First Consort of Mu Country. You’re willing to discard that and leave like this?”

凌萧一愣,没想到傅禹君来牧国不过短短数日,消息竟这么灵通。

Ling Xiao stared blankly, he didn’t expect that this Fu Yujun would be able to get this much information in such a short time.

不过,凌萧可没打算跟傅禹君透露太多,便冷淡的回道:“奴才若是说愿意就这么走,皇子,您是带我走还是不带呢?”

However, Ling Xiao did not plan to reveal too much to Fu Yujun and coldly replied: “If this servant said I wish to leave like that, Prince, are you willing to take me or not?”

傅禹君松了松眉头,目光幽深的望着凌萧,这个小奴才还真是和想象中很不一样啊!

Fu Yujun relaxed his brows, his gaze serene and deep as he looked at Ling Xiao. this little servant really is very different from what he imagine!

怪不得那牧国皇帝不许自己进来探望,要将这小奴才藏得紧紧的,他原先只觉得这荒谬,现在看来嘛,倒是能理解牧国皇帝的决定了。

No wonder that Mu Country Emperor would not allow anyone to visit, trying to hide this servant tightly. He originally thought this was absurd, but now it looks like, he can understand why the Mu Country Emperor decided to do that.

确实要好好看着,不然一眨眼就会溜了。

He indeed needs to be watched carefully, otherwise, in the blink of an eye he’ll slip away.

他敛眸沉思了半响,最后微笑着应道:“带,当然带,你想跟我走,我求之不得呢,不过……”

He thought about it for a long time before smiling and agreeing: “I’ll take you, I’ll naturally take you with me. If you want to go with me, I’ll get to see what you’re trying to do, however…”

凌萧刚松了口气,心又被提了上了,他皱眉盯着这说话总喜欢卖关子的傅禹君,没好气的嘟囔:“您有话就请直说。”

When Ling Xiao just relaxed a breath, his heart once again sped up, he frowned and attentively watched this Fu Yujun that liked speaking in suspense, he unhappily mumbled to himself: “If you have something to say then just say it.”

“牧国皇帝可不会这么容易放手,你得宠的消息传遍皇宫各地,我虽然到牧国的时间不长,却也有所耳闻,牧国皇帝不放走你,我如何带你走?莫非你想和我私奔不成。”

“Mu Country Emperor will not just let you go so easily, the news that you are favored is known widely throughout the palace, although I have not been in the Mu Country long, I also heard about it. The Mu Country Emperor will not let you go, how do I bring you with me? Perhaps you want me to elope with you?”

傅禹君这话说的暧昧,话语间还带着笑意,似乎在他眼里,凌萧就真的是这般所想一样。

Fu Yujun’s words were said ambiguously, while speaking he also had a smile and was eyeing him, like it was really what Ling Xiao was thinking of.

凌萧眼皮跳了几跳,终是忍住了即将出口的粗话,他深呼吸了一口气,轻柔的转移了话题问道:“皇子打算什么时候回国呢?”

Ling Xiao’s eyelid jumped a few times and managed to endure the vulgar language he was going to use and took a deep breath. He gently shifted the subject and asked: “When does Prince plan to return home?”

傅禹君想了想,轻笑着反问道:“你希望我什么时候回国呢?”

Fu Yujun thought a bit then lightly smiled and asked: “When do you want me to return back to my country?”

“越快越好。”凌萧飞速的答,答完才发现自己或许太心急了,不由看向傅禹君。

“The faster the better.” Ling Xiao quickly replied, but after he replied, he noticed he might have been too impatient and looked at Fu Yujun.

傅禹君撑着下巴,一副似笑非笑的模样看着凌萧:“没想到你竟是这么心急跟我在一起,那我也不好否了你的意愿不是?”

Fu Yujun held his chin, a smile yet not a smile on his face as he looked at Ling Xiao: “I didn’t expect you to be this impatient for us to be together. Then isn’t it hard for me to reject your wish?”

傅禹君这般说着,面上又是一副深情的模样,凌萧抽了抽嘴角,正准备回话,傅禹君随即一拍掌说道:“好了,既然你这么心急,那么,就明日吧,明日回国!”

While Fu Yujun said that, his face had an expression of deep love. Ling Xiao’s mouth twitched and was just about to reply when Fu Yujun immediately clapped his hands and said: “Alright, since you are so impatient, then how about tomorrow? I’ll go back tomorrow!”

“!”

“!”

这还真是……够随意的!凌萧无语。

This really is… pretty willful! Ling Xiao remained silent.

“然后呢,你要怎么跟我离开?”傅禹君靠在床边问凌萧。

“After that, how will you leave with me?” Fu Yujun leaned against the bed and looked at Ling Xiao.

凌萧收敛了面部表情,敛眸想了想道:“明日请皇子在宫外等片刻,奴才自会去找你。”

Ling Xiao cleared himself of any expression and thought for a bit before saying: “Tomorrow, this servant asks the Prince to wait outside for a short moment, this servant will go find you.”

“你要逃宫?”傅禹君眯眼望着凌萧,几乎肯定的道。

“You want to escape from the palace?” Fu Yujun narrowed his eyes and looked at Ling Xiao, almost certain of it.

凌萧抿唇,这是他唯一的办法了,担心傅禹君反悔,凌萧解释道:“您放心,皇上不会为了一个小太监追出宫去,也不会为了一个小太监弄砸了两国的关系,若是明日奴才失败了,为了两国关系,皇上也不会追究您,何况,奴才不一定会失败呢。”

Ling Xiao pursed his lips, this was his only way. Worried that Fu Yujun would back out, Ling Xiao explained: “Don’t worry, the Emperor will not go out to chase after a small eunuch, he also wouldn’t sacrifice the relationship between two countries just for one as well. If this servant fails tomorrow, for the relationship of the two countries, the Emperor will not investigate you, besides, this servant will not necessarily fail.”

傅禹君望了凌萧许久,轻声一笑,这小奴才就真觉得牧国的皇帝会如此轻易放手么?

Fu Yujun looked at Ling Xiao for a long time, then quietly laughed. This servant really think that the Mu Country Emperor will let him go so easily?

想着,傅禹君微微摇了摇头,却也没有当面反驳凌萧,只是轻声应道:“明日,我等你。”

While thinking, Fu Yujun slightly shook his head, but did not reject Ling Xiao, he merely quietly replied: “Tomorrow, I will wait for you.”

傅禹君带着两个小宫女离开了,凌萧疲倦的躺回了床上。

Fu Yujun left with the two maids and Ling Xiao lied back down on the bed, tired.

他如今有伤在身,不是最好的逃跑时机,但是他等不了了。

He was injured nowadays, it wasn’t the best timing for him to run away. But he cannot wait anymore.

他这次伤得这般严重,皇帝也没有来看过他,这让凌萧更加确定了皇帝肯定是知道了什么!才这般冷落自己。

He was injured this badly yet this Emperor never came to see him. This made Ling Xiao even sure that the Emperor knows! Giving him the cold shoulder like this.

他不能坐以待毙,这太让人不安了。

He cannot sit and resign to his fate, that would be too worrying.

夜晚,宁轩宫灯火通明,凌萧一身白衣端坐在琴案前,有些出神的望着门口。

At night, Ning Xuan Palace was brightly lit. Dressed in white, Ling Xiao sat upright with a zither table in front of him, somewhat lost in thought as he looked at the entrance.

一名小太监霎时出现在门口,急急忙忙弯腰的走进,恭敬的朝着凌萧行了一礼道:“凌总管,皇上来了。”

One little eunuch appeared at the entrance in a split second, hurriedly bowing as he entered and respectfully saluted to Ling Xiao: “Steward Ling, the Majesty has arrived.”
