Can I have a month’s break? *chewing rabutan*
Chapter 46: Jinjiang Literature City’s First Issue
Ling Xiao fainted and once again woke up.
He felt that his whole body was limp and his mouth was dry. The place he was lying on was soft and shaking, there was also some faint swaying. This swaying was not making him feel any better, but luckily his body was cushioned by a soft mattress which lightened some of the burden.
He laboriously supported his body up, but this one action caused his whole body to feel as if he was being crushed, the pain was extreme. That embarrassing location behind was also scorching, a suspicious liquid flowing out.
He looked distractedly, the scenes from yesterday night appeared one by one in his brain and he shook, his face burning hot.
In the end, he was still… by the Emperor…
Ling Xiao lowered his head and thought of last night. He naturally remembered that his secret was also exposed to the Emperor and was unclear how the Emperor was going to handle it now.
While he was processing that, he raised his head to inspect his surroundings. Everything before his eyes were unfamiliar, and the space was narrow. This seemed to be… a carriage?
Then the swaying Ling Xiao felt was the carriage’s movement?
Ling Xiao was taken aback, then where was he?
Whose carriage is this? And where were they going?
Layer after layer of confusion piled up in his heart and Ling Xiao supported himself up. When he wanted to raise the curtain that blocked his line of sight outside to take a look, he suddenly saw the tip of a black shoe under the curtain.
Then, the curtain was pushed aside.
Ling Xiao returned to the soft mattress, from everyone he has seen, he only knows the Emperor that loves to wear black.
When Ling Xiao concluded in those few moments the person behind the curtain, without delay, he lowered his head and respectfully called out: “Your Majesty.”
“Heh…” A laugh came from behind the curtain and then a person entered with a smile.
“I am not your Emperor.”
With a voice that held some laughing and teasing, somewhat familiar yet not the Emperor, Ling Xiao went blank and raised his head to look. Who he found in front of him was Fu Yujun, dressed entirely in dark clothing and he asked, startled: “How is it you?”
“What’s wrong? You’re really disappointed that I’m not your Emperor?” Fu Yujun arrived before Ling Xiao and appeared quite tired as he leaned against the soft mattress.
Ling Xiao shook his head, making a face: “Just really surprised.”
Fu Yujun heard his words, smiled and shook his head. He bent down to remove his shoes and lied down within the mattress. Startling Ling Xiao, he stood up like he was shying away.
Ling Xiao’s appearance was like a startled kitten, jumping three steps away. The result though, was that because he had done it too suddenly, he overlooked the pain on his body and on the third step, grimaced and clenched his teeth to endure the pain.
Fu Yujun laughed with a “pfft”, “I say, why are you so nervous? Don’t tell me you think I would do something? Or perhaps you want me to do something to you?”
Fu Yujun propped his head as he lied on the mattress, staring at Ling Xiao like he harbors evil intentions. His eyes were full of excitement at the novelty and Ling Xiao went stiff at being stared so much, his face black.
Fu Yujun engrossed himself in watching him, the corner of his mouth maintained an upward curve: “Although I do not love men, but if you want…”
“I don’t want!” Ling Xiao directly interrupted Fu Yujun’s words, making him raise an eyebrow as he continued to speak: “Can Prince explain to me what is the situation right now?”
Fu Yujun closed his eyes, covering the darkness that flitted through his eyes as he stretched and lied down: “I’m tired, how about waiting after I wake up?”
He did not wait for Ling Xiao’s response and directly turned his back to Ling Xiao, closing his eyes and putting on an appearance of already falling asleep.
Ling Xiao’s lips twitched, wishing he could stare a hole in Fu Yujun’s back as he stared.
The carriage swayed, and with Ling Xiao’s injuries, it didn’t take long for him to feel tire as he stood. But this carriage only had one mattress, and on top of it was even Fu Yujun…
Ling Xiao gritted his teeth. For his life, he had even sacrificed his integrity. There was no reason that now he had his life back, he should still mistreat himself!
With those thoughts, Ling Xiao sat back on the mattress while puffing with anger. The mattress was narrow, Fu Yujun was also lying on it, so Ling Xiao could only pull himself into a corner.
Fu Yujun’s sleep was restless, after Ling Xiao sat down, he had placed his legs on Ling Xiao. Ling Xiao had a good temper and just shifted him a little, but after a while, the legs were back on him.
After two to three ties, Ling Xiao was also enraged and pushed aside Fu Yujun, then using his own legs to pushed down Fu Yujun’s legs. This way, even if Fu Yujun randomly moved about, he would be inhibited.
After observation for a moment, he saw that Fu Yujun finally settled down and Ling Xiao heaved several sighs. He leaned against the carriage, sitting on the soft mattress.
.When Ling Xiao relaxed, he did not noticed that Fu Yujun who was supposed to be asleep had suddenly squinted open his eyes. Seeing Ling Xiao’s helpless appearance as he sat, he unexpectedly smiled…
The carriage carried on. Ling Xiao did not know how long the carriage had been moving, he also didn’t know where the carriage was going. The injury on his chest had been changed, but the one on his behind wasn’t handled. His back was sticky and felt very uncomfortable, and Fu Yujun had not woken up at all.
After a period of time, Ling Xiao lifted the curtain on the carriage to look outside. Outside was Fu Yujun’s chamberlain, riding a horse and winding around the carriage’s surrounding.
The scenery outside, was in no way possible the scenery from the capital. They had left the capital?
That right, since he was with Fu Yujun, it was also proof he had left the Emperor’s side.
And that night, he had a faint memory that he had saw Fu Yujun.
It was just that, just how did Fu Yujun get him out? The agreement between them, only needed him to wait outside the palace. For him to come find him himself, he did not need to take the risk to enter and take him out of the palace. So why did he still…
“Xiao Feng, what do you think the Prince is thinking? He had unexpectedly stole someone from the Mu Country Emperor, and even taken us to escape the capital that very night!”
Voices suddenly came from outside the carriage, Ling Xiao perked his ears to listen.
“That’s right! Xiao Feng, we came for peace talks this time. With this kind of falling out, isn’t the relationship between our two country even more tense!”
“Don’t talk without knowing anything!” Xiao Feng’s 八 mustache shook: “Prince has his own plans for doing this. Besides, two countries fighting isn’t something that easy. The Emperor fo Mu Country will not act blindly without thinking.”
“Moreover!” Xiao Feng laughed and said: “Hasn’t Prince left for a period of time, did you not feel that when the Prince returned, Mu Country’s Emperor did not send anyone after us anymore?”
“…When you say that.” Someone thought about it and said in wonder: “It really is like that…”
Xiao Feng said with pride and confidence: “Our Prince settled the problem!”
Saying that, Xiao Feng sighed: “Don’t think too much of it, just guard the Prince well! We will be back in our Shao Country in a few days, then we are safe.”
There would be another few days before they arrive within Shao Country’s border?
Ling Xiao was entranced by it when a faint breath blew on his ear, and a laughing voice sounded.
“What, you like what you’re hearing?”
