Chapter 48: The Soul of the Deceased Has Not Yet Dispersed
“Neigh!” The carriage suddenly swayed once and immediately stopped.
From outside, the voices of the chamberlains asking for instruction could be heard.
“Prince, we are at the tavern.”
“Okay.” Fu Yujun replied and raised his hand to wipe the blood from his mouth. Giving Ling Xiao a glance, he took the lead and walked out.
Ling Xiao held his wound and pushed aside the curtain, walking out as well.
The moment he got off the carriage, he saw Fu Yujun waiting for him not too far away. He stared blankly, then strenuously and slowly walked, catching up to Fu Yujun.
Fu Yujun suddenly raised his hands and threw a small bottle to him. Ling Xiao caught it in a flurry and looked at it, it felt strangely familiar.
But when he thought about it more, he felt no particularly impression of it.
“The Mu Country Emperor wanted me to give you that and told me to tell you to take care of your body.”
Just while Ling Xiao was being confused, Fu Yujun laughing said in front of him, light like a feather.
Ling Xiao staggered and almost fell on the ground. Luckily, Fu Yujun had good eyes and supported him: “Hearing that the Mu Country Emperor is so caring toward you, you almost fell from happiness?”
Ling Xiao raised his head to look at Fu Yujun, his mouth twitching. Which eyes of Fu Yujun saw that he was happy?
He was obviously horrified!
It was already out of his expectations that the Emperor would chase after him, what was even stranger was that the Emperor chased and gave up half way!
The Emperor Ling Xiao knew, he either doesn’t make decisions or once he made a decision, he will not change it easily.
Just what kind of agreement did Fu Yujun make with the Emperor so he would stop chasing? Furthermore, this medicine…
Ling Xiao tightly held the medicine and hid it into his sleeve. This medicine was clearly the one used to smear on his private parts, he originally didn’t remember, but one the Emperor was mentioned, Ling Xiao remembered…
It was just, what was this Emperor thinking? He even had Fu Yujun give him this medicine!
Why is it that now, when he has clearly left the palace, it felt like the Emperor was still by his side…
Ling Xiao pursed his lip, silently shaking off Fu Yujun’s support and slowly walked to the tavern.
Entering the tavern, Ling Xiao made straight for the second floor to wash himself. He originally did not know, but once he removed his clothes, he saw that his body was covered in hickeys, his whole body covered in traces of ruthless love.
However, his body was rather vigorous. He thought that with the injury on his body and being treated like that, he wouldn’t be able to crawl out of bed. But besides being the unbearable pain from when he first woke up, he was slowly getting better.
It was just that even if that area behind was smeared with the Emperor’s medicine, it was still hard to bear. Sitting and standing all cause a lot pain.
At first, he was going to sleep. But who knew that after he finished washing himself, Fu Yujun would pull him downstairs.
Ling Xiao also remained silent, he let it be. Since he was reborn, all his injuries healed quickly. This Fu Yujun was obviously injured, but he was still like a injury-free person.
He seemed to have sensed Ling Xiao’s doubts and answered his question: “What I have is an internal injury, relying on rest won’t do anything.”
Ling Xiao rolled his eyes and followed after Fu Yujun to a window seat downstairs. Fu Yujun ordered some dishes and set about pouring Ling Xiao a cup of tea.
Ling Xiao raised it and drank a mouthful, then saw Fu Yujun resting his chin on his arms and lovingly watching him, his sight extremely touching and gentle. A burst of cold went through Ling Xiao and he place down his teacup, uncomfortably asking him: “Why are you look at me like this?”
“I am thinking, you are really different from when you are in the palace.” Fu Yujun smiled as he watched Ling Xiao, his eyes not even blinking like he was staring at a rare item, full of pleasant surprise.
Ling Xiao couldn’t keep his eye from twitching, and asked: “What’s so different?”
“In the palace, I have seen you a few times. You were always trembling, cautious and solemn. Although it was interesting, it was not conspicuous. After you got out of the palace, look at yourself, just where do you still look like a servant?”
Ling Xiao raised his eyebrow, his gaze on Fu Yujun as he said: “I wasn’t your servant in the first place.”
“Yeah.” Fu Yujun lightly smiled: “Your identity now isn’t simple.”
A flash of light flitted through Fu Yujun’s eyes as he said that, that light was coincidently seen by Ling Xiao and he asked suspiciously: “What do you mean?”
“Have you guys seen the announcement? Our Emperor is going to chose a King Consort!” the voice of a man suddenly passed by from the next table.
Ling Xiao was stunned. The Emperor was going to establish a King Consort?
His attention shifted from Fu Yujun to the next table in a moment.
Three youthful men sat there, all wearing plain cotton clothing. One man lifted his teacup with the other two sitting in front of him, full of astonishment on their faces. The one that spoke was precisely the one that lifted his teacup.
Ling Xiao looked at him and he heard him say: “The next month of today, will be the day the Emperor confers a King Consort. The Emperor is excusing us taxes for one year!”
“This is a good thing.” One of the man heard that they were relieved of taxes and couldn’t help but smile.
“This is our Mu Country’s first King Consort.” Another man interrupted: “I wonder who’s the one that became the Emperor’s favored one.”
“Hm… I think the name was Ling Xiao.” One man remembered.
Ling Xiao heard and almost threw the teacup in his hand. With his face full of amazement, he then saw Fu Yujun teasingly watching him.
Ling Xiao calmed his head and looked at Fu Yujun who was not the least bit surprised, clenching his teeth: “You knew already?”
“The Mu Country Emperor told me that before.” Fu Yujun drank his tea: “He… really is determined to bring you back.”
Ling Xiao went silent and Fu Yujun propped up his chin while watching him. This small servant’s worry was right on his face, his dispirit appearance with his head hanging down was not lively like before. Fu Yujun pursed his lips, consoling him: “You don’t need to be too worried, I don’t think that when you are in Shao Country, he would still be able to snatch you back.”
“Snatch?” Ling Xiao’s mouth twitched. Was he an item?
Ling Xiao sneered, now that he was out of the palace, he also did not need to stay by Fu Yujun’s side. He would rather at the first opportunity…
“That’s right, they forgot to say something. The Emperor announced to the whole country, that the Eunuch Steward Ling that dared to lie to him was already executed.” Fu Yujun suddenly said.
Ling Xiao once again raised his head in shock.
Dead? Isn’t he Steward Ling? He died? But next month the Emperor would be conferring him as King Consort?
What is the Emperor calculating?
Ling Xiao lowered his head, his hair covering his expression so Fu Yujun could not know what he was thinking about right now.
“Prince.” Suddenly, a soft cry arrived by his ear, the voice was so familiar it made people not dare to believe it. He abruptly raised his head, his gaze rooted at where the sound came from.
A body clad in pink clothing, sweet attitude with a beautiful appearance and seductive gaze. It was someone he was so familiar with he couldn’t be anymore familiar with, the person who was said to be dead–Mo Qi!
Ling Xiao suddenly stood up, his face full of disbelief: “You… you…”
He pointed at Mo Qi, unable to say anything for a long time. Mo Qi suddenly grabbed his hand, approaching his ear and tenderly laughed out: “It’s me, Ling Xiao. I have returned from the netherworld!”
