  第52章 打脸傅商君(上)

Chapter 52: Face Smacking Fu Shangjun (I)

  等凌萧醒来,府里早已没有了莫绮的踪影,那位大皇子也俨然离去了。

When Ling Xiao woke up, any traces of Mo Qi in the place was gone. That First Prince also left just like that.

  傅禹君守在凌萧的床边,见凌萧醒来,问清楚详细的情况,将府里上上下下清理了一遍。

Fu Yujun stood guard by Ling Xiao’s bed and asked him about the situation when he saw that he was awake and he searched through his entire household.

  这还真让傅禹君找出了帮助莫绮出逃的人。

He had really found the people who had helped Mo Qi run away.

  其中两人是后院杂役房的奴仆,有一人是厨房的仆役,一人是看院的侍卫,这几人都只有一个共通点,就是都是男人。

Two of them were servants in the back courtyard that did odd jobs, one was a kitchen servant while the last one was a bodyguard that looked after the courtyard. The one common point they all have was that they were all men.

  几人将事情全盘托出,傅禹君和凌萧才知道,早在七天前,莫绮就和傅商君认识了。

After they pulled out the entire matter from those men, Fu Yujun and him found out that seven days ago, Mo Qi and Fu Shangjun already became acquainted with each other.

  是在外面的酒楼。

They met at the tavern outside.

  原来,莫绮凭借着自己的美貌,短短几天就虏获了一众男子的心,利用他们时不时带自己出去吃点好吃的,玩点好玩的。

Mo Qi had used her beauty and in just a few days, captured the hearts of many men and used them to take her out to play and eat from time to time.

  七天前,由侍卫李四带着莫绮去酒楼吃东西,便遇见了经常去那里的傅商君,那傅商君本就爱好美色,见莫绮一副天人之姿,当下,就与她结交了下来。

Seven days ago, the bodyguard had taken Mo Qi out to eat at the tavern and met Fu Shangjun who frequently visited the place. That Fu Shangjun liked beauty in the first place, when he saw Mo Qi’s heavenly beauty, he immediately went to make friends with her.

  之后,两人郎情妾意,莫绮就动心思让傅商君带自己离开,傅商君也欣然答应,这才有了傅商君之后的上门要人。

After that, with the two having a good impression of each other, Mo Qi moved to ask Fu Shangjun to take her away and Fu Shangjun gladly agreed. This was later the reason why Fu Shangjun would drop in to ask for a person.

  那莫绮重生后,也算是有点小心思的,为了隐瞒凌萧和傅禹君,她在府里,从不明着和这几人接触,平日里要这几人带她出门,也是暗地里用着法子找借口的。

Mo Qi could be considered much more careful after her rebirth. In order to hide from Ling Xiao and Fu Yujun, she had never publically got into contact with these men while in the household. Those days when she wanted them to take her out, she would find an excuse to get out.

  而且,照这几人所说,那傅商君经常赠送金银珠宝、锦缎绸罗给莫绮,但莫绮却从不在府中穿戴。

Furthermore, from what these men said, that Fu Shangju had frequently gave her gold, silver, pearls, brocaded silk to Mo Qi, but she had never worn them in the household.

  在府里,她始终是一副受人欺凌,畏畏缩缩求生存低等奴婢的模样。

In the household, from beginning to end she had an appearance that showed she was be bullied and humiliated by people, a cowering and survival-seeking inferior servant look.

  惹得府里的几个男人,心疼于她。

It provoked a few men in the place to be distressed for her and love her dearly.

  那天傅商君上门,莫绮便想法子暗中打听到了傅禹君与傅商君的谈话,知晓自己离开将受到阻扰,莫绮就想着出逃,她找到的就是这几人,这几人早已心疼她在府邸受到欺凌,此时自然都愿意帮助她……

That day Fu Shangjun had dropped in, Mo Qi had secretly asked about what Fu Yujun and Fu Shangjun talked about. Knowing that her departure will be obstructed, Mo Qi thought of how to run away and as such, went to find these men. These men had long loved her dearly since she received bullying from the house and all naturally wanted to help her…

  凌萧和两位侍女所中的就是莫绮从外面买进来的迷药,这也证明她是早有预谋。

What Ling Xiao and his two maids got hit with was the knockout drugs Mo Qi had bought outside, it showed that she had long prepared for this.

  至于,那碗燕窝粥,傅禹君也找来了大夫,检查了那残留在碗底的渣碎,查出了里面被下了剧毒,

As for that bowl of swallow nest congee, Fu Yujun had found a doctor to inspect the remaining bits of it in the bowl. What they found was a highly toxic poison.

  事情全部清楚了,凌萧盯着傅禹君一脸的兴趣盎然:“到了现在,你还觉得这个女人没有什么危险性吗?”

Everything was cleared. Ling Xiao eyed Fu Yujun, his face overflowing with interest: “Do you still feel that this woman is not dangerous at all now?”

  小奴才面上一片讥笑,嘚瑟的模样似乎在嘲讽他小看莫绮的愚蠢,傅禹君沉默的敛下了眸,觉得面子上有些过不去了。

The little servant had a sneer on his face, his face seemed to be taunting his foolishness for looking down on Mo Qi. Fu Yujun silently closed his eyes, he felt as if he could no longer show his face anymore.

  他弯下了一直上扬的唇角,没有再看凌萧,也没有再回答凌萧的问题,愠怒一般,他下令,将这四人全部处死。

The ends of his mouth curled down and did not look at Ling Xiao nor did he reply to his question. Indignantly, he gave an order to have the four men all executed.

  傅禹君面上是一直不曾有的严肃,平时带笑的眼中此时却透着凶狠,宛如一只发怒的野兽,让凌萧本能的颤栗。

Fu Yujun always had a smile in his eyes and rarely wore a serious face, but now, that smile was gone and his cruelty could completely be seen. It was like a beast that got angry, causing Ling Xiao to instinctually tremble.

  这时候凌萧才猛然想起,这位再怎么随和亲民,到底也是一名掌握权利的上位者。

At this time, Ling Xiao suddenly remembered that no matter how amiable and sensitive this guy seemed, he was still someone who has seized power in the top.

  上位者,是不容许他人忤逆自己的。

Someone who sits up high, would not allow someone else to disobey them.

  凌萧沉默的敛下了眸,就听得傅禹君悠悠的道:“我听闻,你给莫绮喝下了那碗剧毒的燕窝粥?”

Ling Xiao silently closed his eyes and then heard Fu Yujun slowly said: “I heard that you made Mo Qi drink that bowl of highly poisonous swallow nest congee?”

  凌萧猛然抬头,发现傅禹君不知何时,恢复了他那一脸的笑意,只是这笑透着冰冷,没有平时的随意,这让凌萧感觉到了危险,他不由警惕小心了起来。

Ling Xiao promptly raised his head and discovered that Fu Yujun had resumed his smiling expression, just that his smile was completely ice cold. It did not hold any of his carefree nature and made Ling Xiao feel danger, he couldn’t help but turn alert.

  “你为何突然问这个?”凌萧打探的问道。

“Why are you suddenly asking that?” Ling Xiao discreetly asked.

  傅禹君闻言挑眉,笑眯了双眼,他转身面向凌萧,带动了身上的金片叮当作响,这响声敲打在凌萧的心头,一下一下,让凌萧心跳遽然加速。

Fu Yujun raised and eyebrow and his eyes narrowed from his smile. He turned around to face Ling Xiao, the golden pieces on his clinking at the sudden movement and these sounds seem to beat within Ling Xiao’s heart. Step by step, Ling Xiao’s heartbeat sped up.

  直觉告诉凌萧,此时的傅禹君很危险。

Intuition told Ling Xiao that the Fu Yujun in front of him right now was dangerous.

  果不其然的,傅禹君突然睁眼说道:“我说过,不能伤她性命,我要问的事情还没有问清楚,你可还记得?”

As he expected, Fu Yujun suddenly opened his eyes and said: “I said before, you cannot harm her life. I still haven’t asked what I want to ask yet, do you still remember?”

  那眼中闪烁的光芒冰冷而危险,凌萧本能的就点下了头。

The flickering light in his eyes were cold and dangerous, Ling Xiao lowered his head out of instinct.

  傅禹君伸手搭在了凌萧的肩头微微用力:“那你记得,就该记到心里头。”

Fu Yujun raised a hand and pressed down on Ling Xiao’s shoulder slightly forcefully: “Since you remember, you should remember it in your heart.”

  傅禹君的手劲不小,被握着的肩头在他手下隐隐作痛,凌萧闷哼了一声,不舒服的皱起了眉头。

Fu Yujun’s strength wasn’t light and his shoulder ache dully under his force. Ling Xiao gave a muffled groan and pursed his brows in unease.

  将凌萧隐忍的模样,全部望在眼底,傅禹君心莫名悸动了一下,他软化了眉目,手下便一松,放开了凌萧。

Taking in the sight of Ling Xiao’s silent endurement, Fu Yujun’s heart started to pound for some unknown reason and he soften his face, relaxing his grip and let of Ling Xiao.

  凌萧一愣,抬眼去看傅禹君,傅禹君望着自己的手似是也很讶然,不过,他的惊讶一闪而过,而后,他轻轻叹息了一声,望着凌萧道:“这次便算了,她自己下的毒也是咎由自取,若她还有命活着,给我留她一条命,或者,给我问出我想要的秘密也成。”

Ling Xiao stared blankly and raised his eyes to look at Fu Yujun. Fu Yujun looked at himself, also feeling very surprised. However, that surprise flitted by quickly and he only softly sighed after that, gazing at Ling Xiao and saying: “I will let it go this time, since she set down that poison herself she was just inviting trouble to herself. If she is still alive, leave her with a hint of life or get the information of the secret I want out of her.”

  凌萧闻言,满眼的疑惑,他不由抿唇问道:“你这么想知道那个秘密,那为何莫绮在府中这么久了,你不问?”

Ling Xiao’s eyes were filled with doubt at his words and he pursed his lips to ask: “If you wanted to know about that secret that much, then why did you not ask her about it when Mo Qi had stayed here for so long.”

  傅禹君听闻,嗤笑了一声,斜眼看着凌萧道:“你又知道我没问?”

Fu Yujun heard and sneered, looking at Ling Xiao from the side of his eye: “And how do you know I didn’t ask?”

  “你问了?”凌萧惊讶。

“You asked?” Ling Xiao was surprised.

  “不止一次。”傅禹君抿唇道:“拷问的时候,也曾动刑了,只是每次动刑的侍从就是李四,那莫绮再怎么动刑嘴巴都紧得很,此时回想起来,怕是李四从中作梗了。”

“No just once.” Fu Yujun pursed his lips: “When I ask her, I had also torture her, it’s just that the chamberlain every time was Li Si. That Mo Qi’s mouth was shut tight every time, but now that I think back, I’m afraid that Li Si was blocking it the entire time.”

TL Note: Li Si is name for an unspecified person, like just calling someone ‘Tom’, ‘John’, etc.

  说着,傅禹君面色冰冷,凌萧闻言奇怪了面色,他带了丝迷茫的道:“你们这么大动静……我怎么不知道。”

Fu Yujun’s face went ice cold as he talked while Ling Xiao’s face became strange as he continued to listen. He said with some bewilderedness: “How come I… never heard about this?”

  傅禹君望了凌萧一眼,那一眼带着他自己都没有察觉的无奈与宠溺:“你每次练功之后回屋就睡,哪知道我做了什么!”

Fu Yujun gazed at Ling Xiao, his eyes filled with helplessness and love that he himself did not notice: “You would sleep in the room after practicing martial arts each time, how would you know what I’ve been doing!”

  “……”凌萧回想了一下,似乎真是这样,练功无疑已经将他的精力都花光,他连莫绮都没来得及管,怎么可能去注意傅禹君。

“……” Ling Xiao thought back and it really was like this. Practicing martial arts had no doubt taken all his energy, there wasn’t even time for his to worry about Mo Qi, so how could he pay attention to Fu Yujun?

  凌萧微微不好意思的挠了挠头。

Ling Xiao nodded his head, slightly embarrassed.

  瞧着小奴才这一副憨厚的模样,傅禹君心中最后那点怨念也消散的一干二净,他微微摇了摇头,叹息了一声,整了整衣裳道:“好了,事已至此,我们去望春楼吧。”

Peering at the little servant’s simple and honest appearance, that final bit of complaint within Fu Yujun’s mind completely disappeared. He slightly shook his head, sighing and straighten his clothes: “Alright, the matters has already come up to this point, let’s go to Hopeful Spring Tavern.”

  “?”凌萧一脸的疑惑,就被傅禹君拉到了这邵国最大的酒楼——望春楼。

“?” With a face full of confusion, Ling Xiao was dragged off to the biggest tavern in Shao Country by Fu Yujun– Hopeful Spring Tavern.

  这个酒楼最有特色的地方,就是里面搭建了一个很大的戏台,平日里,这个戏台会请很多名声在外的歌姬和舞女前来表演。

This tavern’s most distinguishing feature was that there was a large stage within the building. On a normal day, numerous popular singers and dancers would perform on it.

  酒香四溢下,观看美人嫽妙舞姿、聆听甜美歌声,是人间至上的享受。

With the wine fragrance everywhere, watching beauties wonderful dancing and listening to their sweet songs is something humans enjoyed above everything else.

  所以,这酒楼一直颇受大家喜爱,尤其是一些花天酒地、风流随性的纨绔子弟,当然也包括了风流好色的傅商君。

As such, this tavern always received everyone’s love and some would especially spend their time indulging in sensual pleasures. Loose and casual hedonistic sons of rich parents, Fu Shangjn who is loose and lecherous is naturally included within them.

  进去之后,傅禹君包下了二楼的包厢,就带着凌萧上楼了。

After they went in, Fu Yujun took a private room on the second floor and brought Ling Xiao upstairs.

  在包厢里头,能从窗口看到下面戏台的表演,视野也更为宽阔。

Within the private look, they could see the play below through the window, the view was even more expansive.

  傅禹君点了一壶美酒和几个小菜,漫不经心的看着下面的表演,也时不时给凌萧讲解一番。

Fu Yujun ordered a jug of good wine and a few appetizer, absent-mindedly looking at the play below while explaining parts of it to Ling Xiao from time to time.

  凌萧听得厌烦了,不由打断他,直白问道:“你来这里干嘛?”

Ling Xiao was fed up with listening to it and interrupted him, frankly asking: “Why did you come here?”

  傅禹君一愣,放下了酒杯,调笑道:“带你来看看邵国的知名酒楼啊。”

Fu Yujun stared blankly, place down his wine cup and teased: “I brought you out to take a look at Shao Country’s well known tavern.

  凌萧嗤笑道:“府里刚发生了那样的事,你就算有心也不会有选这个时候。”

Ling Xiao sneered: “Your household just had that kind of event happen, if you have a mind you won’t have chosen this time.”

  “来这里有什么目的吗?”凌萧问。

“Is there any purpose for coming here?” Ling Xiao asked.

  小奴才一脸的认真,眉头轻蹙着思考的小模样,让傅禹君心喜得紧。

The little servant’s face of seriousness with his brows tight as he thought made Fu Yujun very pleased.

  他不由轻笑了一声,开口解释道:“我那皇兄,我最清楚,虽然爱美人,却学不来专情,多是图个新鲜,尤其是到手了的,他更不会珍惜。”

That couldn’t help but lightly laugh and explained: “That Imperial Brother of mine, I am most clear about. Although he loves beauties, he just doesn’t know passion and always pursue for something new, especially the things he got ahold of, he doesn’t know how to treasure it.”

  “你是说,莫绮会被你那皇兄厌弃?即使是那番容貌?”凌萧满脸怀疑,莫绮的容貌可是世间少有。

“Are you saying, that Mo Qi would be spurn by your Imperial Brother? Even with her appearance?” Ling Xiao had a whole face of doubt, Mo Qi’s appearance was rare in this world.

  傅禹君轻啜了一口美酒道:“皇兄与我自小看得美人还少吗?”

Fu Yujun lightly drank a mouthful of good wine and asked: “Do you think my Imperial Brother and I have lacked in seeing beauties?”

  “……”凌萧沉默,又问道:“那你来这是做什么?”

“……” Ling Xiao went silent, then asked: “Then why did you come here?”

  “你知道皇兄喜欢来这里是为什么吗?”傅禹君答非所问。

“Do you know why Imperial Brother likes coming here?” Fu Yujun posed a question instead of answering.

  凌萧摇头,傅禹君看向楼下,此时楼下有一女子正在跳舞,他望着那舞姿,问凌萧道:“你觉得此女的舞姿如何?”

Ling Xiao shook his head. Fu Yujun looked down, downstairs now had a woman dancing and he observed the dancer’s movements, asking Ling Xiao: “What do you think of that woman’s dancing?”

  凌萧闻言跟着看了下去,只见楼下一女子身着红艳的贴身舞衣,化着精致的浓妆,在戏台上翩翩起舞。

Ling Xiao followed his gaze down at his question, only to see a woman dressed in colorful red dancer clothing, with exquisite heavy makeup while dancing lightly and gracefully on stage.

  她的舞,带着魅惑与妖娆,腰肢扭动,舞姿嫽妙,不知觉的,就将众人的眼球都吸引了过去,凌萧淡然的看着,默默的在心里摇了摇头。

Her dance carried charm and allure, her waist moving with beautiful movements. Without noticing, everyone’s eyes would be attracted, but Ling Xiao still just indifferently watched, shaking his head silently within his mind.

  这女子的舞,魅惑有余,灵动不足,挑逗的姿态太明显了,显得刻意而累赘。

This woman’s dance, had too much enticement, not enough liveliness, her luring attitude was too clear and looked deliberate and cûmbersome.

  虽是这样想,凌萧面上却并不显,反而附和傅禹君道:“挺好。”

Although he thought of that way, Ling Xiao did not show any of it on his face and only agreed with Fu Yujun: “Pretty good.”

  傅禹君回头看了凌萧一眼,轻笑了一声:“一个小奴才,眼光倒挺高,这可是邵国第一酒楼第一舞姬红叶,在你口中只是‘挺好’这个词?”

Fu Yujun turned back to look at him and lightly smiled: “Your standards are pretty high for just a little servant, but this is Shao Country’s number one tavern number one dancer, Hong Ye. In your mouth, it just ‘pretty good’?”

  凌萧闻言,立马改口:“很好,非常好。”

Ling Xiao immediately corrected himself when he heard that: “Good, very good.”

  傅禹君嗤笑,伸手拍了拍凌萧的头,无奈的瞥了他一眼。

Fu Yujun sneered and reached out to pat Ling Xiao’s head, then shoot him a helpless glance.

  “这女子是皇兄维持兴趣最久的女子,已有三年。”

“This woman is the woman that Imperial Brother had his interest on the longer, it’s already been three years.”

  “什……”凌萧讶然。

“Wha…” Ling Xiao was astounded.

  “皇兄喜欢来这酒楼,多半是因为她。”

“For the most part, the reason why my Imperial Brother likes to come to this tavern is because of her.”

  “这你还说你皇兄不长情?”凌萧多看了女子几眼。

“And you’re saying your Imperial Brother does not have lasting feelings despite of this?” Ling Xiao looked at the woman some more.

  却见女子眼含魅意,舞姿撩动,竟比刚刚多了几分风情,凌萧疑惑的眨眼。

He only saw that woman’s eyes turned charming, and her dancing becoming more provoking, unexpectedly obtaining some more grace. Ling Xiao blinked his eyes in doubt.

  便听得傅禹君道:“皇兄会如此,不过是这女子拒绝了他,他从未得到过这女子罢了。”

He then heard Fu Yujun said: “The reason why Imperial Brother would do so, is because this woman had refused him. He had simply never obtained this woman.”

  “哈?”凌萧眼尖的看见了,呆在人群中对女子痴迷的大皇子傅商君,看来,傅禹君说的不错,这傅商君确实不会被莫绮吸引,这莫绮才刚刚跟着傅商君离去,这傅商君竟还有心情来看舞。

“Hah?” Ling Xiao caught sight of something within the crowds, it was the woman-obsessed First Prince, Fu Shangjun. It looks like Fu Yujun was correct, this Fu Shangjun probably would not be attracted by Mo Qi. That Mo Qi had just followed after that Fu Shangjun yet the man himself even had the mood to come watch a dance.

  看来,他也不用担心莫绮会利用这皇子做什么了,这皇子压根没有把莫绮放在心上。

It looks like he also didn’t need to worry about Mo Qi using this prince for anything. This prince did not take Mo Qi seriously from the beginning.

  只是,凌萧疑惑的眨眼,这舞女的舞姿,怎么越跳越灵动……

It’s just that… Ling Xiao blinked his eyes in doubt, why did it look like this female dancer’s dancing was becoming more and more lively the more she danced?

  那一姿一态皆是风情万种,眼神更是春波横生,眉目间,柔情四溢,脸颊上泛起的潮红,竟是连粉黛都遮不住。

The amorous feelings within her appearance and attitude grew, her eyes overflowing with spring while gentle feelings filled her entire body. A red flush was on her cheeks that even the face powder couldn’t hide.

  跟刚才那舞简直就完全是两个模样。

It was simply two different things from the dance before.

  凌萧皱眉狐疑的盯着舞女,却见舞女始终盯向一处,他不由跟着那目光看了过去。

Ling Xiao knitted his brows in suspicious while he observed the female dancer, only to see her staring in one direction from beginning to end. He couldn’t help but follow her gaze.

  目光却猛然撞进了一双幽深的重瞳当中,凌萧一惊,那舞女所看之处,对面包厢里头端坐着的竟然是一身黑衣金边华服,眉目俊朗,五官立体,面无表情的牧国皇帝牧崇玄。

His sight yet suddenly collided with a pair of serene and deep double-pupil eyes, startling Ling Xiao. That place the dancer was looking at was the private room on the opposite side of him. The one sitting within it was an entire body dressed in black with golden embroidery, a handsome face and sturdy body, with that expressionless face, was Mu Country’s Emperor, Mu Chong Xuan.

  凌萧讶然的瞪大了眼,痴痴的盯着牧国的皇帝,不可置信的站了起来。

Ling Xiao widen his eyes in surprise, foolishly staring at Mu Country’s Emperor and standing up from the unbelievable sight.

  “怎么了?”傅禹君被凌萧突然的动作吓了一跳。

“What’s wrong?” Fu Yujun was startled by Ling Xiao’s sudden movement.

  凌萧猛然回神,他闭了闭眼,再次睁开看向原处,想要确定自己所看到的真实。

Ling Xiao suddenly returned to his senses and closed his eyes, then looked back at that spot. He wanted to take a better look to see if it was real.

  却见那处,了无一人……

But when he looked back, there wasn’t anyone there…

  是……幻觉吗?

Was it… his imagination?

  凌萧皱眉,傅禹君见凌萧面色奇怪,不由也跟着站了起来,随着凌萧的目光看了过去,却并没有发现那处有什么奇怪之处,他不由笑道:“你这小奴才,怎么一惊一乍的,怎么了?”

Ling Xiao frown and Fu Yujun felt that Ling Xiao’s face was strange so he couldn’t help but also stand up and follow his gaze. He didn’t find anything strange in that place and he couldn’t help but laugh: “You little servant, why are you suddenly so frightened? What’s wrong?”

  凌萧回神,看了傅禹君一眼,有些欲言而止,最后他想了想,默默的摇了摇头。

Ling Xiao returned to his senses and glanced at Fu Yujun, but stopped himself before he said anything. In the end, he thought about it a bit and silently shook his head.

  自己没有看清楚的事,还是不要乱说的好。

It was best he did not ask about something he did not see clearly.

  想着,他转移话题道:“你刚刚所说的大皇子想要这名舞女很久了,那他怎么还沉得住气?”

Thinking, he shifted the subject: “You said that the First Prince had wanted this female dancer for a long time, so how is he still keeping calm?”

  据凌萧所知,这名大皇子可不是这么懂的尊重他人意愿的人。

From what Ling Xiao knew, this First Prince wasn’t a man that was so respectful of another person’s wishes.

  傅禹君闻言笑道:“你还不知道这酒楼的另一个奇特之处吧,这酒楼里面的所有歌姬舞姬都只卖艺不不卖身,据说这酒楼的老板是名江湖人士,不怕和朝廷官员作对,所以谁的账他都不买。”

Fu Yujun laughed when he heard that: “You don’t know the other peculiar thing about this tavern. All the singers and dancers of this tavern only sell their skills and not their bodies. Reportedly the boss of this tavern is a famous person of Jianghu, not fearing to go against the dynasty’s officials. As such, he doesn’t accept anyone’s debt.”

TL Note: Jianghu is just the name for the martial art’s world.

  “即使是大皇子?”

“Even if it’s the First Prince?”

  “即使是皇兄。”

“Even if it’s Imperial Brother.”

  “哈。”凌萧觉得很是荒谬的笑了:“这可是你们邵国,整个邵国都是你们皇室的,竟然还有不买你们皇室面子的酒楼存在!”

“Ha.” Ling Xiao felt it was quite absurd and laughed: “This is your Shao Country, the whole Shao Country is your royal family’s, but there is unexpectedly a tavern that your royal family cannot buy!”

  “你们也允许这个的酒楼存在?”凌萧狐疑。

“You guys still permit the existence of this tavern?” Ling Xiao was suspicious.

  傅禹君轻叹了一声:“这酒楼赚的银子一大半给了朝廷,邵国本就不富裕,这酒楼可是很大一笔国库收入,除了酒楼原本的原则问题,平日里,这酒楼对皇室也很是尊敬,父皇不舍得它关掉,而且,父皇向来不喜欢皇兄的胡作非为。”

Fu Yujun lightly sighed: “Half of the money earned by this tavern is given to the dynasty, Shao Country isn’t well-off in the first place, and this tavern makes a lot of money. Besides the principle of this tavern, normally, this tavern is quite respectful to the royal family. Imperial Father is also reluctant to shut them down, furthermore, Imperial Father never liked Imperial Brother running amok in the first place.”

  “皇兄也忌惮他的事被父皇知道。”傅禹君末了,补充了一句。

“Imperial Brother is also afraid of this matter being found out by Imperial Father.” Fu Yujun only said this one line in the end.

  “所以,这酒楼才至今无事。”凌萧恍然大悟。

“As such, this tavern has nothing to do with it.” Ling Xiao suddenly realized.

  傅禹君点头。

Fu Yujun nodded.

  凌萧问道:“那你怎么想的?”

Ling Xiao asked: “Then what are your thoughts?”

  傅禹君似笑非笑的看着凌萧,并没有答话,凌萧却很是明白傅禹君的心理,这不被控制的东西,总是让人不安的,恐怕这傅禹君已经开始查这酒楼的来历了。

Fu Yujun gaze a smile that was yet not a smile at Ling Xiao and did not reply. Ling Xiao was quite clear on Fu Yujun’s thoughts, things that could not be controlled always made people uneasy. Perhaps this Fu Yujun had already began investigating the history of this tavern.

  他好奇,这傅禹君究竟查出了什么,不由开口问道:“那你对现在这个酒楼知道多少?”

He was curious on just what Fu Yujun had found out about this tavern. He asked: “Then what have you found out about this tavern?”

  聊及此,傅禹君面色有些难堪,他摇了摇头,闷闷的喝了一口酒道:“至今只知道,他们都不是邵国人,而且,还没有证据。”

Chatting to this point, Fu Yujun’s face turn somewhat embrassed and he shook his head, depressedly drinking his wine then answered: “The only thing I found out so far is that they are all not people of Shao Country, plus, there isn’t any evidence.”

  “……”凌萧沉默,这还真是算一无所知了。

“……” Ling Xiao went silent, they really don’t know anything at all.

  总感觉,这酒楼对邵国是个很大的威胁,凌萧心底想着,甩了甩头,有种不能深究下去的直觉,他不由错开话题道:“那你到底来这里,是为了做什么?”

He always feel that this tavern is a great danger to Shao Country. Ling Xiao thought of that and he shook his head, he always have this intuition that he shouldn’t think any deeper. He switched the subject: “Then just why did you come here? To do what?”

  “确定一件事。”

“To confirm a matter.”

  凌萧沉思,想起刚刚在楼下观看表演的大皇子傅商君,不由开口接道:“难道是确定大皇子是不是还会来看这名舞姬的表演?”

Ling Xiao contemplated, thinking back at that First Prince Fu Shangjun who was watching the performance down stairs and connected: “Don’t tell me it’s to see if that First Prince will still come to watch that famous dancer’s performance?”

  傅禹君笑着点头:“只要他还来,就证明了两点,一点,莫绮不在他心上,只不过是他的玩物,第二点,就是莫绮的毒他还不知道,不然,毕竟是新玩物,如果知晓中毒了,不会如此无情。”

Fu Yujun smiled and nodded: “As long as he comes, it is proof of two points. The first point is that Mo Qi is not present in his heart, she is just his play thing. The second point, he still does not know of Mo Qi’s poisoned state. Otherwise, even if it’s a new play thing, he would not be so heartless if he knew it was poisoned.”

  “还有一点。”凌萧接道:“若是……莫绮逃出去之后,根本没有去大皇子的府邸呢?”

“There’s another point.” Ling Xiao continued: “If… after Mo Qi escaped, she didn’t go to the First Prince’s house?”

  凌萧想起刚刚看见的牧国皇帝,心中总有些不安。

Ling Xiao thought of the Mu Country Emperor he just saw, a feeling of unease in his heart.

  傅禹君挑眉,很是疑惑的望着凌萧,这小奴才和自己的想法可是一致的,都觉得莫绮在邵国无所依靠,除了傅商君那里无处可去,怎么这小奴才突然提出这个可能。

Fu Yujun raised an eyebrow and watched Ling Xiao with some suspicions. This little servant had the same thoughts as him, they both thought that Mo Qi had no one to rely on in Shao Country. Besides with Fu Shangjun, she had nowhere to go. So why this small servant suddenly raise this possibility?

  想着,傅禹君正想开口问,突然,一楼传来一阵嘈杂。

Fu Yujun thought and wanted to ask when suddenly, noises suddenly came from the first floor.

  凌萧看了下去,发现竟然是傅商君在强拉那舞姬红叶,傅禹君和凌萧对望了一眼,同时转身下楼。

Ling Xiao looked down and to his surprise, discovered Fu Shangjun dragging the dancer, Hong Ye. Fu Yujun and Ling Xiao exchanged glances and turned around to go down the stairs at the same time.

  1. Next chapter buttons reverts back to this chapter that I had to click ToC to proceed to the next one. Same with chapter 51. I thought the website is playing with me for a minute then TvT

  2. I really hope Mo Qi dies the worst death possible because she is a completely bitch that only cares for herself and her our little Ling Xiao very badly and for that alone she deserves the death of a thousand cuts!!!

        Wouldn’t it be better to take away her beauty and disfiguring her by chopping her limbs off be better? Afterall, the reason why she can do those things is due to her being beautiful. Ugh. That first prince is disgusting. At least we know that he is going to get his face smacked~

            Thank you~ There are times when living is worse than death. Since she likes to use her looks that much, why not take away her beauty and allow her to continue living with an ugly face. Besides, after she got her face ruined and her limbs cut off, she wouldn’t be able to cause too much trouble. Well it is either that or only cutting off her limbs and tongue than throwing her away into a brothel making her serve all those men just the way she likes. Without any limbs or a tongue she wouldn’t be able to communicate with other people to make them help her. And since we didn’t ruin her looks, she would still be a beauty capable of ruining cities, she would have a lot of customers.
