第55章 风波不断

Chapter 55: Crisis After Crisis

凌萧咬牙沉默,傅禹君突然伸手,手伸在半途却被红叶的叫唤打断。

Ling Xiao clenched his teeth in silence. Fu Yujun suddenly reached out his hand, but was interrupted halfway by Hong Ye’s call.

傅禹君冷着目光看向红叶,红叶企图帮凌萧解围道:“皇子,公子他还没有……”

Fu Yujun looked at Hong Ye, his gaze cold. Hong Ye attempted to help Ling Xiao: “Prince, Young Master still hasn’t…”

“下去!”然而,傅禹君并不打算听红叶的话,冷声下达了命令。

“Leave!” However, Fu Yujun did not plan to listen to Hong Ye’s words and directly ordered her coldly.

红叶有些犹豫,却碍于傅禹君的权威,只能无奈的转身离开。

Hong Ye hesitated a bit, but she could only turn around and leave under Fu Yujun’s authority.

瞬间,整个院落,就只剩下傅禹君与凌萧两个人了。

In a moment, only Fu Yujun and Ling Xiao remained in the entire courtyard.

凌萧微微后退了一步,与傅禹君保持了一段安全的距离,主动开口解释道:“见你很仰慕那舞者一般,我不太好意思说出口,泯灭你的幻想。”

Ling Xiao took a slight step back, keeping himself at a safe distance from Fu Yujun. He took the initiative to explain: “Seeing you admire that dancer so much, it was a bit hard for me to tell you and destroy your fantasy.”

“那你就看着我像个无头苍蝇一样到处找你?”傅禹君的语气带着蕴怒。

“So you just watched me as I ran around like a headless fly looking for you?” Fu Yujun’s tone carried anger.

一直带笑的眉目,因为怒意散发出威压,压迫得凌萧又后退了两步,这让凌萧不得不意识到这个男人,即使再亲和,平日里再怎么和自己交好,他也是一个皇子,有着皇族的血脉,掌握着许许多多人的生死。

He continued to wear a smile, but because of his anger, an oppressing atmosphere spilled from him, pressuring Ling Xiao to step back another two steps. Ling Xiao had no choice but to become aware that this man, even if he was amiable to him and was kind to him on a normal day, he was still a Prince. He has the blood of the Imperial Family and holds the life and death of many people.

他有着高高在上的地位,有着强烈的自尊,他不会允许他人的欺瞒,尤其是在他所在乎的事情身上。

He had a high position and possessed a strong pride. He would not allow someone to lie to him, especially on a matter he cared about.

凌萧皱眉,此时的话若是说不好,还真可能被傅禹君一刀切了。

Ling Xiao frowned, if he doesn’t word his words well, he might really be cut down by Fu Yujun.

他必须谨慎一些。

He must be more cautious.

凌萧一直没敢说话,傅禹君却等得不耐烦了,他凑近凌萧,不悦的道:“你离我这么远做什么?心虚?”

Ling Xiao did not dare to speak and Fu Yujun got impatient from waiting. He approached him, a voice full of displeasure as he asked: “Why are you so far from me? You have a guilty conscience?”

他冷笑着伸手捏住了凌萧的下巴道:“你不敢说话,也是心虚?”

He coldly smiled and grasp Ling Xiao’s chin: “The reason why you aren’t speaking, is it also guilt?”

凌萧闻言抿唇,傅禹君捏着下颚的手并不轻,弄得凌萧有些吃痛,他挣脱开傅禹君的束缚,忍不住开口道:“我便是心虚了又怎样?”

Ling Xiao pursed his lips when he heard that. The grip Fu Yujun had on his chin wasn’t gentle at all, causing some pain for Ling Xiao. He threw of Fu Yujun’s hold and couldn’t help but say: “So what if I’m feeling guilty?”

心虚才证明这也不是他所想的。

Being guilty was proof that he didn’t think it would had happen like that.

然而,此话说得极为倨傲,带着令人厌恶的自信,挑拨着傅禹君那根名为理智的神经,他危险得眯起了眼,冷冷的望着凌萧道:“你现在倒是坦白了!”

However, the way he said it was extremely arrogant, carrying a self-confidence that caused others animosity. It hit the nerve within Fu Yujun called reason and he narrowed his eyes dangerously, coldly looking at Ling XIao: “You are rather honest now!”

凌萧咬唇,也知自己刚刚所说的话,对于现在的傅禹君来说,难以接受,但与其四处找着借口,不如全部坦白。

Ling Xiao bit his lip, he knew that the words he said just know was hard for Fu Yujun to accept. But rather than trying to find an excuse, it was best to be honest.

傅禹君不是皇帝,他虽然身处高位,掌握着凌萧的生死,但是,皇帝的气场更要凛冽一些,一散发出来,凌萧就能感觉到死亡在靠近自己,连逃都会是徒劳,所以凌萧一直不敢跟皇帝坦白。

Fu Yujun was not the Emperor, although he had a high position and had Ling Xiao’s life and death in his hands, he was not like the Emperor who had a bitingly cold aura. Once that aura came out, Ling Xiao would feel that death is near and even escaping the city would be futile. As such, Ling Xiao could never dare to be honest with the Emperor.

但傅禹君的气场,虽然可怕,但只会让凌萧想要远离……并不能感觉到死亡的气息。

So even though Fu Yujun’s aura was frightening, it only gave Ling Xiao the desire to gain some distance from it… unlike the deathly aura from the Emperor.

也许,这傅禹君从来就没有想过,要自己的性命。

Perhaps, this Fu Yujun had never thought about wanting his life.

抱着这样的想法,凌萧终于壮着胆子抬起了头,与傅禹君直视道:“不管你信不信,我只说一句,你听好了,这件事情,瞒着你也不是我的所愿。”

Carrying those kinds of thoughts, Ling Xiao finally gathered his courage to raise his head and looked straight at Fu Yujun: “It doesn’t matter if you believe me or not, I will only say one thing, hear it clearly. I also didn’t want hide this matter from you.”

小奴才神情坦荡,望着自己的目光清澄透亮,纯净的瞳孔中,映射出自己扭曲的面容,让傅禹君在凌萧面前,有些难堪了起来。

The little servant’s appearance was very noble, his gaze was limpid and bright, with his pure eyes landing on his own twisted appearance, Fu Yujun felt that the Ling Xiao in front of his was a bit hard to take.

他掩饰般转开了头,躲避着小奴才的视线,小奴才的视线却如胶似漆的粘在自己的身上,他躲避着,转身逃似得跑离了凌萧的院落。

He turned his head like he was trying to hide, hide from this little servant’s line of sight, but his gaze seemed to be clue on his body. He evaded his gaze and turned around, directly running out of Ling Xiao’s courtyard.

眼见着傅禹君离开,凌萧瞬间松懈了下来,坐回了院落的石凳上。

Watching Fu Yujun leave, Ling Xiao was able to relax for the moment and sat back down on the stone bench in the courtyard.

坐了良久,凌萧的脑子里浮现出傅禹君离开时那失魂落魄的背影,微微的苦笑。

After sitting for a while, the scene of Fu Yujun leaving in a daze played in his mind, and he gave a bitter smile.

也是该失魂落魄,毕竟仰慕了这么久的人是个男子已经够受打击的了,还是一个一直跟在自己身边,知晓他这一举动的男子,这更让高高在上的傅禹君难堪。

He should be dazed, after all, the person he had admired for so long was a man, that should already be one hit. To add in that man was always by his side, a man he knew all this while, it really was hard to take for Fu Yujun, this man who was always up high.

看来,自己也是时候思考着离开了。

It looks like it’s about time for him to think about leaving.

只是,不知道,傅禹君今日去了大皇子府邸,要抓回莫绮的事情进展的怎么样了。

It just that he doesn’t know how the matter with Fu Yujun going to the First Prince’s home and trying to capture Mo Qi went.

一夜无眠,清晨一大早,凌萧打开房门。

Ling Xiao did not sleep that night and in the early morning, he opened the door.

便见门口守着两人。

Only to see two people keeping watch by it.

一人是昨夜就一直担心他的红叶,一人却是神情憔悴的傅禹君。

One of them was Hong Ye, who was worried about him the whole night, while the other was the haggard Fu Yujun.

凌萧心里咯噔了一声,诧异的盯着傅禹君。

Ling Xiao’s heart thumped once and he stared at Fu Yujun, flabbergasted.

表情充满了疑惑。

His expression full of confusion.

傅禹君此时也正注视着凌萧,见他从里面出来,表情还有些复杂,但明显情绪已经稳定下来了。

Fu Yujun was also staring at Ling Xiao. His expression was also somewhat complicated as he watched him appear, but his state of mind had visibly stabled.

凌萧咽了咽口水,在原地喊了他一声:“二皇子。”

Ling Xiao swallowed his saliva, calling out to him once in his spot: “Second Prince.”

“凌萧……”

“Ling Xiao….”

傅禹君小声的叫唤,转身朝红叶说道:“你下去叫人弄些早点上来,我与公子谈谈。”

Fu Yujun called out softly then turned and told Hong Ye: “Go and get some servants to bring up breakfast, I will talk with your Young Master.”

红叶似是有些不情愿,最后还是行礼退了下去。

Hong Ye was somewhat unwilling, but she still left in the end.

“凌萧。”一见红叶离开,傅禹君唤着凌萧就要上前来,凌萧往后退了一步,微显僵硬的道:“你就在那儿说,我听着。”

“Ling Xiao.” Fu Yujun called out to him and walked closer once he saw Hong Ye leave. Ling XIao took a step back, somewhat stiffly saying: “You can just stay there and talk to me.”

傅禹君微微皱眉,很是不情愿,但瞧见小奴才一脸警惕的模样,也知晓昨夜怕是吓着他了,不由缓了面色,开口道:“昨夜,是我失态了。”

Fu Yujun slightly frowned. He wasn’t really willing, but watching the little servant’s vigilant appearance, he also knew that he had frightened him last night. His face returned to normal and he said: “My apologizes for last night’s behavior.”

凌萧讶然的睁眼,傅禹君这是……

Ling Xiao widen his eyes out of surprise, Fu Yujun was…

傅禹君似是第一次这般与人低声下气,不由憋红了脸,他轻声道:“昨夜就想着,你骗了我,看着我对你这般情深意重,却仍然可以不管不顾的继续瞒着我,我一时火大就……”

This was the first time Fu Yujun had spoke to someone so softly like this and his face redden, he quietly continued: “I was thinking last night about how you lied to me and watched me with my deep feelings, yet continued to hide the fact from me. My angry just got to me…”

说到这,傅禹君顿了顿,微显烦躁的道:“总之,是我错了,抱歉,吓着你了。”

Speaking to this point, Fu Yujun paused and fidgeted: “Anyway, I was wrong, sorry, I scared you.”

凌萧愕然,这傅禹君还真是跟自己道歉吶!

Ling Xiao was stunned. This Fu Yujun really was apologizing to him!

昨夜还那般气愤,今天就笑眯眯的跑到自己的面前来道歉,凌萧觉得有点想不通傅禹君的想法,傅禹君见凌萧一脸惊疑未定,模样着实憨厚可爱的紧,不由轻笑出声:“我已经想清楚了。”

He was so angry yesterday, yet today, he’s smilingly apologizing to him. Ling Xiao felt that it really was a little hard to understand Fu Yujun’s thoughts. Fu Yujun saw that Ling Xiao appeared completely bewildered and undecided, it was truly an adorable look and he couldn’t help but smile: “I had already thought it through.”

说着,他微微停了停,低声嗤笑了一声道:“……其实也不是什么想清楚,这本来就不是什么需要想清楚的事情,舞者是你,更让我欣喜才对,虽然你瞒着我让我气愤,但如果是你,我很乐意。”

He paused slightly as he spoke, he snickered once: “…Actually, it is not that I thought it through, it was always something I didn’t need to think about. I am happier with you as the dancer, although you hide the fact from me and angered me, if it is you, I am quite content.”

“什……什么意思?”凌萧觉得自己有点乱,舞者是他这个大男人,傅禹君表示很乐意?

“Wh…What do you mean?” Ling Xiao truly felt very confused, the dancer was him, a male, yet Fu Yujun expressed that he was very content?

这跟他想的不太一样……

This was a bit different from what he imagined…

“我对舞者的心思你都明白,那你可懂,我对你凌萧的心思?”傅禹君没有直接回答凌萧的话,而是问了凌萧另外一个问题。

“You are clear about my thoughts on the dancer, then do you understand my thoughts toward you, Ling Xiao?” Fu Yujun did not answer Ling Xiao’s question, instead, he asked him another question.

这个问题,凌萧左思右想,觉得答案肯定不简单,但他又着实想不出什么特别的,不由疑惑的盯着傅禹君。

Ling Xiao turned the question over in his mind. He felt that the answer wasn’t something simple, but he really couldn’t think of anything special. He couldn’t help but stare in doubt at Fu Yujun.

傅禹君向前走了两步,拉住了凌萧的手道:“对你的心思与对舞者一般无二。”

Fu Yujun walked forward two steps and pulled on his hand: “My thoughts toward you and the dancer are the same.”

“?!”凌萧吃惊的瞪眼,忙甩开了傅禹君的手。

“?!” Ling Xiao widen his eyes, startled and hurriedly shook off Fu Yujun’s hand.

他是不是已经睡着了,还没有睡醒……

Was he still asleep and therefore dreaming…

(The exact line wasn’t that, but I couldn’t think of a good way to put it.)

傅禹君盯着被甩开了手,有些失落的收回,抬头笑道:“没关系,你总有一天会接受我的。”

Fu Yujun stared at his hand that was shook off and took it back somewhat disappointed. He raised his head and said with a smile: “It doesn’t matter, you will accept me one day.”

“我会娶你。”傅禹君突然说道。

“I will marry you.” Fu Yujun suddenly said.

这就像一个炸弹,炸得凌萧外焦里嫩,他痴呆着神情,盯着傅禹君,半天回不来神,傅禹君温柔的看着他,放佛要用目光腻死凌萧一般。

This was like a bomb, frying Ling Xiao burnt. He gave him a look of insanity, eyeing Fu Yujun while he was out of it the whole time. Fu Yujun gently watched him, like he was trying to drown Ling Xiao with gentleness.

凌萧却并不能感觉到傅禹君的温柔,他看着这样的傅禹君,只感觉一股寒意从心底蔓延到了身体各处,凌萧知道此时的傅禹君很危险,比昨夜的还要危险,

But Ling Xiao was unable to feel Fu Yujun’s gentleness, he could only feel that chill in his heart spread throughout his body as he looked at this Fu Yujun. Ling Xiao knows that this Fu Yujun was quite dangerous, even more dangerous than last night.

他恨不得就此离开这个地方,躲开傅禹君那渗人的视线。

He hated how he could not just leave this place and stay out of Fu Yujun’s horrifying line of sight.

心里隐隐生出一种感觉,若是此时不离开,就没有机会再离开了。

A faint feeling rose from his chest, if he did not leave now, then he will never have the chance to leave.

凌萧思及此,倏然干笑出声,他低头轻声说道:“我知道了,肯定是我今天开门的方式不对,我再开一次。”

Ling Xiao thought this and that before suddenly bursting out into hollow laughter, he bowed his head and quietly said: “I know now, I definitely opened the door wrong today, let me open it again.”

说着,凌萧将门大力的甩上,眼看傅禹君就要离开自己的视线,凌萧心稍稍安定。

With those words, Ling Xiao vigorously flung the door, watching Fu Yujun leaving his line of sight. Only then did Ling Xiao’s heart somewhat settled.

然而,“哐”的一声,傅禹君突然伸手推向门,阻止了凌萧的动作,他只身挡在门之间,扬眉看着凌萧道:“不要躲,而且,我说的都是真的。”

However, with a “clang”, Fu Yujun suddenly reached out to push the doors, preventing Ling Xiao’s action. He blocked the door and raised an eyebrow at Ling Xiao: “Don’t hide, plus, what I said to you were all true.”

凌萧一愣,见关门失败,不由有些懊恼,他深呼吸了一口气,像看一个神经病一样看着傅禹君,不可思议的道:“就因为你知道我是舞者,就要娶我?哪怕我是一个大男人。”

Ling Xiao stared blankly and was annoyed at his failure of closing the door. He took a deep breath and used the kind of gaze one would use to look at a mental case on Fu Yujun, and used a voice that could not hide his disbelief: “Just because you know that I am the dancer, you want to take me as your wife? Even if I am a male?”

这傅禹君的脑回路怎么回事!

Just what was going on within this Fu Yujun’s brain!

“我说了,不仅仅是因为你是舞者,还因为你是凌萧。”傅禹君的语气很坚定。

“I already said, it isn’t just because you are the dancer, it is also because you are Ling Xiao.” Fu Yujun’s tone was very firm.

凌萧却觉得很是荒谬,他懒得和傅禹君纠结这个问题,直白而恼怒的瞪着傅禹君道:“我不可

能答应!”

Ling Xiao only felt that this was very absurd, he didn’t feel like arguing with Fu Yujun on this subject and frankly and angrily glared at Fu Yujun: “I cannot agree to it!”

“我没打算听你的意见。”傅禹君轻笑。

“I did not plan to listen to your opinion.” Fu Yujun gave a light smile.

凌萧一震,傅禹君这话什么意思,他心底隐隐的不安。

Ling Xiao shook, what did Fu Yujun mean? A faint feeling of unease remained constant in his heart.

小奴才面上一片惊慌失措,那不可置信的表情,显得憨厚万分,跟平时精明狡诈的模样完全不一样,这样的小奴才让人很有保护的欲望。

The little servant had a face of panicking fear and unbelievable expression, it appeared very honest and was completely different from his usual shrewd and crafty appearance. This kind of appearance gave a person a great desire to protect him.

傅禹君见状,没忍住伸手轻轻揉了揉凌萧的头,抚慰的意味甚浓。

Fu Yujun couldn’t endure the desire to reach out and gently rub Ling Xiao’s head at the sight, trying to comfort him.

凌萧一把拍开了他的手,傅禹君吃痛的收回,不悦的皱眉。

Ling Xiao slapped away his hand, causing Fu Yujun to take back his hand in pain, frowning with displeasure.

凌萧低头思索着,抿唇再次开口拒绝道:“二皇子,请别让凌萧为难了好吗?”

Ling Xiao lowered his head, deep in thought. He pursed his lip and once more refused: “Second Prince, please stop making things difficult for Ling Xiao alright?”

傅禹君闻言敛眸,并没有回答凌萧的问题,而是一意孤行的道:“三天后,我们成亲。”

Fu Yujun controlled his gaze when he heard that and did not reply to Ling Xiao’s question, rather, he willfully said, “We will get married in three days.”

凌萧闻言,恼怒的皱眉,这傅禹君怎么回事!吃错药了吗!

Ling Xiao frowned in resentment at his words. Just was was wrong with this Fu Yujun! Did he eat the wrong medicine?!

许是知道凌萧心中所想,傅禹君主动开口劝道:“也许你开始不能接受,等久了,你就习惯了,习惯了也就接受了,我会一辈子对你好,将你宠得无法无天,会给你最盛大的成亲庆典,并且,这一辈子,我只会娶你一个。”

As if he knew what Ling Xiao was thinking about, Fu Yujun started to console him: “Perhaps you can’t accept it in the beginning, but with time, you will get used to it and with that, accept it. I will be good to you your whole life, love you so much you can’t help it. I will give you the most grand marriage celebration and in this lifetime, I will only marry you.”

凌萧闻言,嘴角抽搐了两下,他承认,他听到这话,很是感动,若自己是个姑娘,绝对感动涕零,说不定脑子一热也就嫁了!

Ling Xiao’s mouth twitched a bit. He admit, he really was quite moved by those words, if he was a girl, then he would really be moved to tears and maybe even just get married like that!

但他凌萧是个大男人!带把的!

But he, Ling Xiao is a man! He has a handle!

他一个大男人要怎么嫁?!

How can a man like him get married?!

这傅禹君受什么刺激了!

Just what kind of stimulation did this Fu Yujun receive?!

突然间就要成亲,而且,三天后,这成亲的日子也定的太快了吧。

He suddenly wanted to get married, plus, it was in three days. Wasn’t the day set for marriage too fast?

凌萧咬牙,见怎么反驳傅禹君都没有用,便换了一种方式,他缓和了面色,柔了柔嗓音,轻声劝道:“承蒙皇子看重,凌萧……也是……乐意的。”

Ling Xiao clenched his teeth, seeing how no matter what refusion he used couldn’t move Fu Yujun, he switched tactics. He eased his expression and used a soft voice, quiety persuading him: “This is one indebted to being cared about by the Prince, Ling Xiao… also… am willing.”

黑着脸说出违心的话,见傅禹君一脸的兴奋,凌萧心里的良心有些小小的谴责,他干笑道:“但是,这三天后,太仓促了吧?”

With a dark face speaking words against his will, Ling Xiao has a bit of criticism in his heart when he saw Fu Yujun’s excited face. He gave a forced smile: “However, in just three days, isn’t it too sudden?”

傅禹君闻言,叹息了一声道:“确实仓促,但我等不了了,我怕你……”

Fu Yujun sighed at what he said: “It is sudden, but I cannot wait. I’m afraid you…”

说着,傅禹君似是意识到什么,突然停顿了下来,这话似是他不想对凌萧提起的。

Fu Yujun seemed to have become aware of something as he broke off mid speech, it seems like it was something he didn’t want to remind Ling Xiao of.

但凌萧怎会这么轻易让傅禹君岔过去,他忙追问道:“怕我什么?”

But how could Ling Xiao let him so easily run by? He questioned him: “Afraid I would what?”

傅禹君握了握手掌道:“我跟你说了,你可要沉住气。”

Fu Yujun held his hands and said: “I will tell you, but you need to stay calm.”

“好。”凌萧点头,一脸迫不及待的模样。

“Yes.” Ling Xiao nodded, his face impatient.

傅禹君见状无奈的摇了摇头,颇为犹豫而沉重的道:“牧国皇帝来到邵国了。”

Fu Yujun helpless shook his head, rather hesitant as he seriously said: “Mu Country’s Emperor has arrived in Shao Country.”

“……”凌萧还以为什么事呢,这事他早知道,只是这傅禹君是怎么知道的。

“……” Ling Xiao had wonder was it was, so it was just this, he had long knew about it. The question was how did Fu Yujun know about it.

接受到凌萧疑问的目光,傅禹君主动解释道:“在皇兄府外,我本来是在等莫绮的,结果等到了他。”

Receiving Ling Xiao’s questioning gaze, Fu Yujun moved to explain: “When I was waiting outside Imperial Brother’s home waiting for Mo Qi, the result was that I found him instead.”

“你……你和他会面了?”凌萧惊疑。

“You…You met with him?” Ling Xiao was bewildered.

傅禹君摇头,一脸的严肃,严格来说,是牧国皇帝主动联系的他,而他并没有亲眼看见牧国皇帝,牧国皇帝实际上,只交给了他一张字条。

Fu Yujun shook his head, his face solemn. Strictly speaking, it was the Mu Country Emperor taking the initiative to contact him and he did not actually see the Emperor with his own eyes. In fact, the Mu Country Emperor had only given him a brief note.

上面写了这么几句话。

On it were a few lines.

承蒙皇子照顾朕的皇君,现下,朕来接他回去了。

We are indebted to the Prince for taking care of our King Consort. Now, We have come to take him back.

这短短的几句话,让傅禹君很是不安,所以,他才会一回府就先去见凌萧,然而,却让他知道了凌萧就是舞者的事实……

This short note made Fu Yujun very restless, as such, he had returned back to his home early to see Ling Xiao. But then, it let him find out that Ling Xiao is the dancer….

“没见面,你怎么知道他来了?他对你做什么了?”凌萧在一旁疑惑的问。

“How do you know he’s here if you haven’t met him? What did he do to you?” Ling Xiao asked by his side, full of suspicion.

傅禹君却并不想告诉凌萧字条的事,只得转移话题道:“他的人劫走了莫绮。”

Fu Yujun did not want to tell Ling Xiao about the note, so he shifted the subject: “One of his men took away Mo Qi.”

“什……什么?!”凌萧惊讶:“你不是守在大皇子的府门口吗?”

“Wha…What?!” Ling Xiao was surprised: “Weren’t you keeping watch at the First Prince’s door?”

“对。”傅禹君咬牙,正是因为守着,才接到了那张字条,才和牧国皇帝的人撞了个正着,为了抢夺莫绮,这才闹了一天。

“Yes.” Fu Yujun gritted his teeth, it was because they had been keeping watched that he got that note, and had ran into the Mu Country Emperor’s people. In order to take Mo Qi, they had noised around for an entire day.

然而,他还是没能将莫绮带回来。

However, he still wasn’t able to bring Mo Qi back.

牧国的势力在邵国竟然已经这么大了!

Mu Country’s power in Shao Country was already this great!

他必须好好查查这个事情了,不过首要的,是留住这个人。

He must investigate this matter well, but what was most important right now was making this person stay.

如果这个人嫁给自己了,牧国皇帝就无法带走了。

If this person marries him, then the Mu Country Emperor can’t take him away.

越想越觉得是这个道理,傅禹君望着凌萧的目光越加的露骨与灼热。

The more he thought about this reason, the more intense and hot Fu Yujun’s gaze was on Ling Xiao

这让凌萧很是不自在。

It really made Ling Xiao feel uncomfortable.

傅禹君似是察觉到了凌萧的反感,微微收敛了情绪,撇头道:“莫绮的事我会查清楚,也一定会将她带给你处置,你不用担心,现在只要好好准备嫁给我就好。”

Fu Yujun seemed to have sensed Ling Xiao’s bad reaction and he slightly curbed his mood, turning his head away: “I will investigate the matter about Mo Qi and give her to you to deal with. You don’t need to be anxious, you only need to prepare yourself to marry me.”

“不是……”凌萧皱眉,怎么谈着谈着又扯到这个话题上面了,他必须要想办法阻止傅禹君才行。

“Wasn’t it…” Ling Xiao frowned, why did the discussion go back to this subject, he must find a way to stop Fu Yujun.

“来人。”傅禹君却并不听凌萧所言,他打断凌萧朝外喊了一声。

“Servants.” Fu Yujun did not listen to Ling Xiao and called out for his servants.

瞬间,凌萧的院落各处布满了带刀侍从。

In a moment, Ling Xiao’s courtyard was covered with sword-wielding chamberlains.

凌萧一愣,讶然的盯着傅禹君,这傅禹君不会是想囚禁他吧?

Ling Xiao stared at him in surprise, this Fu Yujun wasn’t trying to imprison him right?

接收到凌萧茫然的目光,看着凌萧面上对他信任以及依赖的表情,傅禹君难堪的撇开了头,小声的说了一声:“对不起。”

Receiving Ling Xiao’s blank gaze and looking at his expression that showed trust and dependent on him, Fu Yujun felt it was hard to to take and turned his head away, saying one line in a low voice: “I’m sorry.”

末了,他又交代道:“你好好留在这里,三天后,我娶了你就放你自由。”

In the end, he said one more line: “Just stay here obediently, in three days, I will marry you and let you free.”

说着,傅禹君含情脉脉的看着凌萧,趁着凌萧不注意,俯身在他脸上轻巧的落下一吻,承诺道:“我会对你很好的。”

With those words, Fu Yujun tenderly gazed at Ling XIao and landed a kiss on his face while he was not paying attention, promising to him: “I will be very good to you.”

说完,他转身离开屋内。

Fu Yujun directly turned and left the house after that.

凌萧摸着被他所吻之处,那一处残留了傅禹君的唇上的湿热,宛如被粘腻的虫子爬过一般,带着令人无法接受的粘稠感,凌萧狠狠的擦了几下,只擦得那处肌肤泛红,才怏然的停手。

Ling Xiao rubbed the place he was kissed, the feeling Fu Yujun’s warm lips still lingered there, and it felt like a greasy insect was crawling, a very hard to bear sticky feeling. Ling Xiao viciously wiped it and only stopped until the skin there was red.

为何傅禹君的吻他这么厌恶,皇帝的却全然没有关系。

Why did he hate Fu Yujun’s kiss so much when the Emperor’s was just fine?

莫非……他喜欢上了皇帝不成?!

Perhaps… he had started to like the Emperor?!

凌萧愕然的瞪眼,连忙甩头,阻止自己深思下去。

Ling Xiao widen his eyes, stunned before promptly shaking his head, preventing himself from thinking any deeper on that topic.

现在重要的不是纠结这个,而是,怎么逃出这个牢笼……

What was important right now was thinking about that, but how to escape this cage…

夜晚,各家灯火渐熄,望春楼各处却灯火通明。

That night, the lights of each house was gradually extinguished while Hopeful Spring Tavern was brightly lit.

皇帝坐在二楼包厢内,凛然的望着跪在下方的红衣女子红叶。

The Emperor sat within a private room on the second floor, coldly staring at the red-clad Hong Ye kneeling below.

“你说,傅禹君他要娶朕的皇君?”

“Did you say, Fu Yujun wants to take Our King Consort as his wife?”

那声音冷得宛如冰渣子一般,砸在红叶的心头,令红叶浑身冰凉,她颤抖着唇,强压下威压应道:“是……是的。”

That voice was so cold like ice, smashing into Hong Ye’s heart and froze her all over. Her lips trembled and answered while being pressured by the power: “Ye….Yes.”

“呵。”

“Sigh.”

红叶似乎听到了一声笑声,她愕然的本能抬头,看向了自己的主子,心中惊讶万分,要知道,她从小跟着主子,在她印象中,她的主子从来没有笑过。

Hong Ye seemed to have heard laughter and raised her head instinctively, stunned as she watched her Master. She was very amazed, she had followed her Master since young and in her impressions, she had never heard her Master laugh before.

然而,此时,她确实看到她的主子笑了,但是那笑却未及眼底,唇明明是扬着,却让人感觉不到任何的笑意。

However, right now, she was seeing her Master laughing, but that laughter did not touch his eyes. His lips were clearly raise, yet it did not give anyone the feeling that he was smiling.

只有无尽的威压以及冰冷。

It only contained a pressuring power and coldness.

皇帝周遭气压极低,散发出来的龙威让整个房间没有一点温度,在这么强烈的气势下,红叶冻得浑身颤抖,望见的那笑只觉得诡异而渗人。

The Emperor’s surrounding pressure was very low, the dragon might that emitted from him caused the room to not have any temperature. Under this imposing aura, Hong Ye shudder from the chill, only feeling that smile was eerie and horrifying.

红叶被震的一动不敢动,就连目光她都忘记了移开。

Hong Ye was frightened so much she didn’t dare to move, she even forgot to move her gaze away.

皇帝见状,轻撇了她一眼,仅一眼,红叶就感觉自己在地府走了一遭,她第一次知道,原来死亡是这么的近……

The Emperor gave her a glance at the sight, it was barely a glance yet Hong Ye felt like she had walked by misfortune. This was the first time she had know that death was actually so near…

红叶也不知最后是怎么将头低下去的,她只知道,她此生再也不想看见刚才的那一幕。

Hong Ye also didn’t know how to moved her head down, she only knew that she never wants to see that scene again in her life.

太可怕了……

It was too frightening…

恐惧席卷了红叶的身心,她早忘了,面前这个坐着的是她从小发誓要效忠的皇帝,也是从小就爱慕着的皇帝。

Fear engulfed Hong Ye’s body and mind, she had long forgotten, that the man before her was the Emperor she had vowed her loyalty and devotion to, and also the Emperor she had admired since young.

几年没见,当初那个令她心动的少年,已然成长为了一个让所有人都畏惧的君王。

In just a few years since she had not seen him, that youngster that would cause her heart to pound had matured into a Sovereign King that all feared.

也与她渐行渐远了……

And had gradually gotten further from her…

“他要娶便让娶吧。”皇帝继冷笑之后,轻猫淡写的说了这么一句。

“If he wants to marry, then let him marry.” The Emperor lightly said line after his cold smile.

红叶惊愕,有些不明所有,皇帝慢悠悠的喝了一口茶,叹息了一声,眯眼冷道:“如果他做得到的话。”

Hong Ye was stunned, unable to quite understand what he said. The Emperor unhurriedly drank his tea, sighed and narrowed his eyes, coldly stating: “If he can do it.”

皇帝说话没有太多的起伏,但是,莫名就让人感觉到了威压与信服。

What the Emperor said did not hold much, but it still gave people the feeling of might and faith.

红叶听及此,便知道,傅禹君要娶凌萧是不可能了。

Hong Ye knew that after she heard that, it was impossible for Fu Yujun to marry Ling Xiao.

她不由敛眸伏低了头,这是极为恭敬与诚服的姿态。

She closed her eyes and kept her head low, this was an extremely deferential and convinced attitude.

琢磨着,她开口道:“皇上,还有一事,红叶……已经被怀疑了。”

She thought a bit before adding on one more thing: “Your Majesty, there is one more matter. Hong Ye…. is already under suspicion.”

皇帝闻言,微微挑眉:“是傅禹君?”

The Emperor slightly raised an eyebrow: “Was it Fu Yujun?”

“公子也有所怀疑。”红叶回道。

“Young Master was also a bit suspicious.” Hong Ye replied.

“无妨。”皇帝回道:“你无需多管,在皇君身边护他周全即可。”

“No matter.” The Emperor answered: “You don’t need to worry about it, just stay by his side and protect him.”

“……是。”红叶应了一声,躬身退了下去。

“…Yes.” Hong Ye answered back and bowed, leaving.

在红叶退下之后,皇帝握着手中的茶杯,思及刚才红叶的回禀,不由冷哼一声,手掌一个用力,茶杯应声而化为灰烬。

After Hong Ye left, the Emperor held the teacup in his hand and coldly humphed when he thought back to her report. With a burst of strength, the teacup in his hand cracked and turned to dust.

朕的皇君,岂是他人能惦记的。

How can Our King Consort be someone another can think about?

“暗崖。”皇帝松开手掌,茶杯的灰烬散落在空中,蒙上了一层白雾,白雾渐渐飘散,虚空中出现了一个黑影。

“An Ya.” The Emperor let go of the teacup’s remains and it scattered in the air, causing a slight white fog. The white fog gradually drifted as a figure appeared out of nowhere.

黑影身着黑色劲装,长发束着马尾,背后背了一把长剑,一副江湖人的装扮,他恭敬的跪在皇帝的面前,行礼答道:“主子。”

The figure was dressed in black sturdy clothing, his long hair tied in a ponytail. Behind him was a long sword, he had the appearance of someone who was a martial artist. He respectfully knelt before the Emperor, giving his greetings: “Master.”

“行动提前。”皇帝靠在椅背上,把玩着手掌轻飘飘的道。

“Shift the plan earlier.” The Emperor leaned back into the chair, lightly fiddling with his palm.

“是。”暗崖没有丝毫的犹豫,应的很是干脆,似乎只要是皇帝下的命令,他都不会管其原因。

“Yes.” An Ya did not hesitate at all and answered at once. As long as it was the order made by the Emperor, he will not care about the reason.

暗崖退了出去,皇帝靠在椅背上闭上了眼。

An Ya left and the Emperor closed his eyes, leaning back in the chair.

三天么?

Three days?

那么三天就将小太监带回来罢。

Then he will take back the little eunuch in three days.

二皇子府邸。

Second Prince’s Residence.

凌萧已经被关了一天了,除了吉祥福康两位贴身丫鬟,凌萧不可以见任何人,包括红叶。

Ling Xiao had already been closed in for a day now, besides the two servant girls Ji Xiang and Fu Kang, Ling Xiao could not see anyone else, including Hong Ye.

也不可以踏出自己的这个房间,窗户门口都有侍卫把守。

He also couldn’t walk out of his room, there were guards keeping watch at his windows and door.

现在凌萧是有些武功了,但是对付一个侍卫可以,对付多个还不行。

Ling Xiao may have learned some martial arts now, but he could only go against one and not too many.

他只能被死关在这里。

He could only be closed in here.

但凌萧不是一个安分的主,自己逃出去这计划不通,凌萧就把脑筋动到了傅禹君的头上。

However, Ling Xiao wasn’t a person that would just sit still, since his escape plan was stopped, then Ling Xiao’s mind moved to thinking about Fu Yujun.

他想从傅禹君那里突破。

He wanted to run away using Fu Yujun.

这天,凌萧早早的就让吉祥去把傅禹君请来。

This day, Ling Xiao had told Ji Xiang very early to invite Fu Yujun over.

但是,吉祥回来却表示,并没有看见傅禹君,听说,是早早的就进宫去了。

However, when Ji Xiang came back, she had stated that she did not see Fu Yujun. She heard that he had left very early to the palace.

似乎当今邵国皇帝出了什么事。

Apparently something had happened with the Shao Country Emperor.

没了法子,凌萧只能等傅禹君归来,然而,傅禹君到了傍晚,才急匆匆的回府,一回府,不用凌萧请,他一路飞奔到了凌萧的院落。

With no other way, Ling Xiao could only wait for Fu Yujun to come by. However, Fu Yujun only returned in a hurry at dusk. When he returned to his residence, without Ling Xiao even inviting him, he directly dashed to Ling Xiao’s courtyard.

凌萧讶然的看着傅禹君,他此时全身颇为狼狈,汗湿沾襟,面上也颇为苍白,凌萧惊愕的站起了身,傅禹君疾步走到了凌萧的面前。

Ling Xiao stared at him in surprise. Fu Yujun cut a rather sorry figure right now, sweat moistened his lapel and his face was rather pale. Ling Xiao stood out of shock as Fu Yujun speedily walked in front of Ling Xiao.

拉着他出门。

And pulled him out the door.

凌萧皱眉,反手拉住他手臂道:“发生了什么?”

Ling Xiao frowned, and moved his hand so he was the one pulling on his arm: “What happened?”

傅禹君皱眉,为难的看着凌萧,张口欲语,却没有发出任何的声音,最后他颇为懊恼的拉过他,将他推到了门外候着的肖峰旁边道:“肖峰,带上院子里的所有人护着公子躲到密室去。”

Fu Yujun frowned and awkwardly looked at Ling Xiao, opening his mouth to speak yet no sound could be heard from him. In the end, he pulled him toward himself, rather vexed as he pushed him toward Xiao Feng who stood at the entrance: “Xiao Feng, take all the men in the courtyard to protect and hide him in the secret room.”

“皇子,您……”肖峰垂眸,几欲说话,傅禹君对着他摇头:“我能自己解决,保护好他。”

“Prince, you…” Xiao Feng droop his eyes, trying to speak but Fu Yujun shook his head at him: “I can settled this myself, just protect him well.”

“等等……”凌萧搞不清楚状况:“这是发生了什么?”

“Wait…” Ling Xiao couldn’t make heads or tail of the situation: “Just what happened?”

傅禹君闻言,复杂的看向凌萧,并没有回答凌萧的问题,而是苦笑着走近他道:“成亲估计要推一推了。”

Fu Yujun looked at him with a complicated cause and did not answer his question. Rather, he forced a smile and approached him: “I’m afraid the date of marriage has to be pushed a little.”

凌萧眼睛一亮,有些庆幸。

Ling Xiao’s eyes brighten, rejoicing over it.

傅禹君见此更是苦笑,他伸手撩了撩凌萧的头发道:“但我说的我一定做到。”

Fu Yujun’s smile became even more bitter at the sight, he raised his head to tousle Ling Xiao’s hair: “But what I said I would do, I would definitely do it.”

就是做不到也没事的,凌萧在心里默默回答。但见傅禹君如此严肃,凌萧的话梗在喉咽也说不出口。

It’s okay even if you can’t do it, Ling Xiao answered silently in his mind. But seeing Fu Yujun so earnest, Ling Xiao simply couldn’t say those words.

他默默抬眼,直视着傅禹君。

He silently raised his eyes, looking straight at Fu Yujun.

傅禹君深情款款的望着凌萧,就像是要将凌萧的容颜印刻在心底一般,带着决绝与留恋。

Fu Yujun lovingly watched Ling Xiao, like he was trying to imprint Ling Xiao’s appearance into the bottom of his heart, filled with determination and reluctance to leave.

凌萧浑身一震,傅禹君深情的目光,凌萧看的不少,基本上从认识到现在,傅禹君每一刻的目光都有意无意的带了深情,但,从没有哪一次如这次这般。

Ling Xiao shook all over. Ling Xiao had seen this kind of deep and loving sight many times, pretty much ever since he had knew this man, Fu Yujun’s gaze all carried deep emotions whether intentionally or otherwise. However, this was the first time it was like this.

这眼神,似是在告别,眷念而缠绵,凌萧隐隐觉得某样东西要抓不住了,他不由伸手拉住了傅禹君。

This expression seemed to be bidding him farewell, fond and touching. Ling XIao had a faint feeling something was going to be lost and he unconsciously reached out and pulled Fu Yujun.

傅禹君敛眸,望着凌萧拉着自己手臂的手,微微一愣,继而他恍然轻笑:“能在离开前看见你的挽留,能感受到你的关心,已经够了。”

Fu Yujun restrained himself, looking down at Ling Xiao pulling his arm and was slightly distracted. Then, he gave a light laugh: “To be able to see you trying to make me stay before I leave, to be able to feel your concern, it is already enough.”

傅禹君将自己的手臂从凌萧手中抽了出来,安慰道:“没事的,什么事情我都能解决,保护好自己,等我……”

Fu Yujun pulled his arm out of Ling Xiao’s grasp and comforted: “It’s alright, I can settle the matter, you just need to protect yourself and wait for me…”

说完,他最后留恋般看了凌萧一眼,决绝的转身,朝外跑去。

Fu Yujun gave him a final look that held his reluctant to leave after that, determinedly turning around and running outside.

“……”

“……”

凌萧沉默,这种莫名的不安是怎么回事,他捂着自己的胸口,望着傅禹君的背影皱眉。

Ling Xiao went silent, what was this indescribable feeling of unease? He held his chest, frowning as he watched Fu Yujun’s back.

“公子,快走吧。”肖峰开始催促凌萧。

“Young Master, let’s leave.” Xiao Feng started to urge Ling Xiao.

“你们不告诉我发生了什么,我怎么走?这是逃命吗?”

“How can I leave when you guys don’t tell me what is happening? Are we escaping for our lives?”

几次三番被傅禹君绕过了话题,凌萧也有些恼怒,这种不知道发生了什么似是被保护着的情况,让凌萧心里没有底,也很没有安全感。

With the subject being avoided by Fu Yujun so many times, Ling Xiao was also a bit angry. This kind of situation where he didn’t know what was happening and being protected really did not calm Ling XIao, it also did not give him a sense of security.

肖峰闻言皱眉,为难道:“这……皇子既然不告诉你,必定不想你多想,这我也不好说啊。”

Xiao Feng frown at the question, awkwardly answered: “This… since the Prince didn’t tell you, he probably didn’t want you to over think about it. So this is also hard for me to talk about.”

凌萧冷笑:“你认为现在我可能不多想吗?”

Ling Xiao coldly smiled: “Do you believe I can’t over think about this now?”

肖峰皱眉摇头:“公子你就别为难属下了。”

Xiao Feng frowned and shook his head: “Young Master, just don’t make things difficult for this subordinate.”

“你不告诉我,我便不走了!”凌萧见好说歹说没有用,便开始耍赖。

“I won’t leave if you don’t tell me!” Seeing that trying to reason with him wasn’t working at all, he started to act shameless.

肖峰无奈,左右望了望,见没有外人,便凑近凌萧耳边,小声的道:“当今圣上突然暴毙了,但遗诏是将皇位留给了二皇子的,可大皇子不知怎么弄到了兵符,要造反……”

Xiao Feng was helpless. Checking around him, seeing that there wasn’t anyone, he got closer to Ling Xiao’s ear and said in a quiet voice: “The current Emperor suddenly died, by his edict said that the Second Prince was to be the Emperor. But we don’t know how the First Prince got ahold of the Army Seal and wants to rebel…”

“什……什么?!”凌萧惊愕:“怎么突然发生了这么大的事?!”

“Wh…What?!” It stunned him, “Just how could such a big thing happen?!”

“公子,先别说了,快走吧。”肖峰着急。

“Young Master, let’s leave and leave the talking for later.” Xiao Feng was anxious.

凌萧也明白事态的严重性,忙急匆匆的跟着肖峰一行人躲到了傅禹君所说的密室里。

Ling Xiao was now clear about the seriousness of the situation and hurriedly followed Xiao Feng to hide in the secret room that Fu Yujun said before.

密室挺大,容下院子里的几十个侍卫、肖峰、凌萧还有凌萧的两位贴身丫鬟吉祥和福康,还有很大的空间。

The room was pretty big and contained the dozens of bodyguards from the courtyard, Xiao Feng and the two servant girls Ji Xiang and Fu Kang. There was still plenty of space left.

里面有水和吃的,还有生火的地方,到处都是兵器。

There were water and food within, there was also a place to make a fire. Weapons littered everywhere.

全部人都到齐了,却独独没有看见红叶,凌萧有些奇怪,便问了肖峰。

All the people were present yet Hong Ye wasn’t which Ling Xiao found strange. He asked Xiao Feng about her.

肖峰道:“红叶大概是被皇子带走了。”

Xiao Feng answered: “Hong Ye was probably taken with the Prince.”

“恩?”凌萧好奇,他总觉得他好多事情都不清楚。

“Eh?” Ling Xiao was curious, he felt that there was a lot of stuff he wasn’t clear on.

肖峰此时将凌萧带到了安全的地方,也松懈了一些,便开口向凌萧解释道:“皇子,一直以来就怀疑红叶姑娘,他不可能让红叶姑娘这个不知底细的人跟着公子你的,所以,离去前就把红叶带上了。”

Now that Xiao Feng has brought Ling Xiao to a safe place, he also relaxed and explained to him: “The Prince has been suspicious of the Hong Ye girl the entire time. He would not allow this Hong Ye girl who is not an insider to follow Young Master. As such, he had taken Hong Ye with him when he left.”

凌萧闻言,心中流淌过一道暖流,这傅禹君虽然脑回路奇怪了些,但到底是为他着想的,危险时候,还想着回来将他安置妥当,做到他这般也已经是仁至义尽了。

A warm feeling flowed through Ling Xiao, although there was something strange going on with this Fu Yujun’s head, but he was still doing things for him. When it was dangerous, he had still returned to get him to a safe place, this kind of person really was meticulous virtue and attentive.

要是他对自己没有什么奇怪的心思,倒是可以成为好兄弟。

If only he didn’t have some strange thoughts toward him, they could had become good brothers.

凌萧抿唇,又开口问道:“听闻,邵国皇上,才三十又余,正值壮年,一直以来,也未曾听闻有什么顽疾,怎么突然……”

Ling Xiao pursed his lips, then opened up to ask another question: “I’ve heard that the Shao Country Emperor is only over thirty, in the prime of his life. There was also never any rumors that he had ever gotten ill, so how could he suddenly…”

“就是啊!”肖峰附和,也很是不解,凑近凌萧小声的道:“圣上一直以来没有什么毛病,这突然间就……好在,他许久之前就有意向将皇位传给二皇子,老早,便将遗诏给立下来了……”

“That’s right!” Xiao Feng agreed, he also did not understand what happened. He got closer to Ling Xiao: “The Emperor has always been fine in the past, so to suddenly… luckily, he had long intended to pass the title to Second Prince and had written an edict a long time ago…”

“本来,遗诏有了,皇子继位也不至于国乱,但是……这大皇子突然举兵造反……这……”

“Originally, with the edict, the Prince should had been able to succeed the throne without the county going into chaos, however… this First Prince had somehow made the soldiers rebel…this…”

说着,肖峰担忧道:“现在大臣们是都站在二皇子这边的,但是二皇子手里头没有兵权,怎么抵得过有三十万兵马的大皇子啊!”

Speaking to this point, Xiao Feng was concerned: “Now the chancellors are all on the Second Prince’s side, but the Second Prince did not obtain the military leadership, how can he fight against the three hundred thousand military forces of the First Prince!”

“朝中大臣也无人有兵权么?”凌萧皱眉,这傅禹君的形势不妙啊。

“Are there no one else in the court that has military power?

“吏部尚书手里头,倒是有五万。”肖峰答道。

“The High Official of the Ministry of Appointment has fifty thousand.” Xiao Feng replied.

凌萧敛眸皱眉,这五万对上三十万也是……

Ling Xiao held back a frown, this fifty thousand versus three hundred thousand was just…

他们不能独独守在这里,不然等到的就不是二皇子,而将是找寻而来的大皇子了!

They can’t just stay and keep watch here, otherwise, what awaits them isn’t the Second Prince but that First Prince!

凌萧抿唇,搜寻着脑子里的知识,想着有没有办法帮到傅禹君。

Ling Xiao pursed his lip and searched through his mind for information, trying to think of a way to help Fu Yujun.

他四处看了看,脑里闪过一个东西,凌萧眼中亮光一闪,正想起身。

He looked around his surrounding and a certain item flashed through his mind. His eyes lit up and he wanted to get up.

突然,密室的门突然动了一下,随即很快被打开。

When suddenly, the door to the secret room was quickly open.

肖峰等人,都站了起来,举起兵器,将凌萧团团护住,紧张的盯着密室出口。

Xiao Feng and the others all stood up, heaving their weapons and staring nervously at the door as they surrounded Ling Xiao.

他们不知道,是谁找到了这里。

They did not know who had found this place.

肖峰咽了咽口水,做了最坏的打算,他悄然的后退,来到了凌萧的面前道:“公子,若是等会是大皇子的话,我们拖住大皇子,你就趁乱跑出去,不要回头。”

Xiao Feng swallowed and did the worst action possible. He quietly retreated until he was in front of Ling Xiao: “Young Master, if the one that appears is the First Prince, we will hold him. Please take the chance to run and don’t return.”

“……”凌萧默然,说不清现在是个什么感受,他与肖峰其实并不相熟,只知道,他是傅禹君的一名手下。

“……” Ling Xiao went silent, he didn’t know how to explain his current feeling. He was not familiar with Xiao Feng at all, he only knew that he was one of Fu Yujun’s subordinate.

也许肖峰只是为了傅禹君的命令,才会这般护着自己,但无论他出于什么原因,他确确实实可以为了自己丢掉性命,凌萧突然觉得眼眶有些酸涩,内心却一片热血澎湃。

Perhaps Xiao Feng was just protecting him like this because of Fu Yujun’s order, but no matter the reason, to be protected so sincerely that he was willing to throw away his life. Ling Xiao felt his eyes sour a bit and some hot blood flowing through his heart.

这是独属于男人的热血情结!

This was the hot blood that belonged exclusively to men!

这些人,为了忠义可以这般不顾性命,他凌萧一直以来战战兢兢,怕死惜命,一步步如履薄冰的活到现在,这次,就好好放开自己,也来玩儿一轮情谊忠义吧!

These people, were willing to throw away his life for their loyalty while Ling Xiao was always trembling with fear, fearing death and cherishing life. He lived his life up to now like walking on thin ice. This time, he will let himself go and also try this kind of friendship and loyalty!

这般想着,凌萧的目光变得坚决,他在地上捡起一把武器,也跟着肖峰等人一起紧张的注视门口,势必要和这些人共同进退。

With those thoughts, Ling Xiao’s gaze become firm and he picked up a weapon from the ground, following their gazes to also stare nervously at the door. He was determined to retreat and advance with these men.

肖峰见状,以为凌萧是在瞅准时机逃离,不由微微安心,目光也开始专注的盯着门口。

Xiao Feng thought that Ling Xiao was looking for a chance to run and he felt much more at ease. His sight went back to concentrating at the entrance.

终于,那扇门全部打开了,外面的人影也清晰得映入了凌萧等人的眼中,

Finally, the door was completely open and the person outside entered Ling Xiao’s sight.

是一身红色劲装的妙美女子——红叶。

It was a red-clad beautiful woman–Hong Ye.

凌萧讶然,就连肖峰也是一愣。

Ling Xiao was astounded, even Xiao Feng was surprised.

红叶进门,清冷的目光扫了众人一轮,最后停在了凌萧的身上。

Hong Ye entered, her cold gaze sweeping all the people within until it finally landed on Ling Xiao.

她此时没有了作为舞姬时候的妖娆与柔弱,全身散发出一种危险的气息,让肖峰等人警惕万分。

She no longer carried the alluring and weak dancer conduct from before, rather, a danger aura was emitted from her, causing Xiao Feng to be very much on guard.

见众人如此,红叶冷笑了一声,瞧着肖峰等人的眼中尽是不屑,她一步步朝凌萧走去。

Seeing how everyone were, Hong Ye coldly smiled once and looked toward Ling Xiao, her eyes filled with disdain. She walked step by step toward him.

肖峰护着凌萧后退了两步,举着武器威胁的盯着红叶,红叶丝毫不受影响,步伐逐渐加快。

Xiao Feng guarded Ling Xiao and retreated two steps, lifting his weapon and threateningly watched Hong Ye. Hong Ye was not affected at all and her pace gradually accelerated.

“别过来!”

“Don’t come over!”

肖峰大吼,希望吼退红叶,但红叶迎难而上,丝毫没有停下脚步的意思。

Xiao Feng loudly shouted, wishing his shout could make Hong Ye withdraw. But Hong Ye faced it and did not have any indication of stopping.

肖峰无法,只得举着武器带着众人迎战而上。

Xiao Feng had no choice but to lift his weapon along with everyone else and meet her head on.

然而,红叶身形鬼魅,不出半刻,所有人竟都被打倒在地。

However, Hong Ye’s figure was like a demon, in not even half a quarter, everyone was knocked down to the ground.

凌萧望着地上连连哀叫的众人,讶然了神情,他颤抖着举着武器,盯着红叶目瞪口呆。

Ling Xiao watched everyone that was crying out from the pain on the ground in astoundment. He raised his weapon, trembling and staring at Hong Ye, dumbstruck.

红叶走到了凌萧的面前,伸手抓住了他的手腕道:“公子,请跟我走。”

Hong Ye walked in front of Ling Xiao and grabbed his wrist: “Young Master, please come with me.”

红叶的手劲出奇的大,拉着凌萧的手腕泛疼,他不由轻声呼痛。

Hong Ye’s strength was extraordinary great, pulling Ling Xiao so hard he cried out softly in pain.

红叶听到凌萧的呼痛声,微微松了松手,减少了力度,凌萧眼一闪,感觉到了这红叶对自己并没有什么敌意。

Hong Ye slightly loosen her grip and strength when she heard the cry. Ling Xiao’s eyes flashed, he felt that Hong Ye was not hostile toward him.

他不由大着胆子反抗道:“我不走。”

He gathered up his courage and resisted: “I won’t go.”

“公子。”红叶皱眉不解。

“Young Master.” Hong Ye frowned, she couldn’t understand why.

凌萧道:“我……为什么要跟你走,你到底是谁?”

Ling Xiao answered: “I…why do I have to go with you? Just who are you?”

红叶为难道:“这个红叶出去再告诉您好吗?现在请跟我走。”

Hong Ye felt awkward: “Can Hong Ye tell you after we go out? I would like you to come with me for now.”

“你不说清楚,我哪里都不会去的。”凌萧冷笑。

“I won’t go anywhere if you don’t explain clearly.” Ling XIao coldly smiled.

红叶无法,只得凑近凌萧小声的道:“是牧国皇上派我来保护你的。”

Hong Ye had no other choice but to go closer to Ling Xiao and quietly tell him: “It’s the Mu Country Emperor who told me to come and protect you.”

凌萧讶然,瞪着眼盯着红叶,红叶朝他点了点头。

Ling Xiao stared in surprise, his eyes staring wide at Hong Ye. Hong Ye nodded toward him.

此时红叶与凌萧凑得极近,而且,红叶对凌萧毫无防备。

At this moment, Hong Ye and Ling Xiao were extremely close, plus, Hong Ye did not have her guard up against Ling Xiao at all.

凌萧眼中闪过一丝狡黠,红叶便感觉胸口一处刺痛了一下,之后全身一僵,便不能动弹了。

A trace of craftiness flickered through Ling Xiao’s eyes. Hong Ye only felt a stab of pain at the pit of her stomach and her body went rigid. She couldn’t move at all.

她愕然的盯着凌萧,凌萧嘚瑟的举起了自己的手,手伸出了两指,做出了一个点穴的东西,凌萧朝红叶微笑道:“我唯一从傅禹君那里学来的最有用的东西,点穴……”

She stared at Ling Xiao, shocked. Ling Xiao raised his hand with two fingers out and pressed a pressure point. Ling Xiao smiled at Hong Ye: “The only useful thing I learned from Fu Yujun, hitting a pressure point…”

“公子!”红叶气恼:“我是来保护您的!”

“Young Master!” Hong Ye was annoyed, “I’m here to protect you!”

红叶咬牙切齿的低声道。

Hong Ye gnashed her teeth and said in a hush tone.

凌萧挑眉,同样小声的回道:“你说的我听见了,但接不接受你的保护,是我的选择。”

Ling Xiao raised an eyebrow and used the same quiet tone to reply: “I heard what you said, but whether I accept your protection is my choice.”

“肖峰,快找根粗绳子,将这人捆住。”凌萧担心自己的点穴功夫不到家,不由朝地上的人叫唤道。

“Xiao Feng, hurry and find a thick rope to tie her up.” Ling Xiao was worried that his pressure point skill wasn’t going to hold and called out for the man on the ground.

肖峰捂着伤口从地上爬了起来,四处搜寻了一轮,真找出了一根粗绳。

Xiao Feng held his wound as he crawled up from the ground. He searched around before finding a thick rope

凌萧忙将红叶捆住,为了保证牢固,凌萧在绳头系上了好几个死结。

Ling Xiao hurriedly tied up Hong Ye. To make sure it was firm, Ling XIao tied several tight knots at the end of the ropes.

做完这些,肖峰已经清点了受伤的人数,带着一群人在角落养伤去了。

After they done that, Xiao Feng had already finished checking all the people who had been injured and took a group of people to the nook to rest and heal.

凌萧所在的地方,就只剩下红叶了,凌萧四处望了望,见众人都在疗伤,没有注意这边,便凑近红叶小声问道:“皇上如今还在邵国?”

Only Hong Ye remained at where Ling Xiao was. Looking around him, everyone was resting and healing, so they did not pay much attention to him. He approached Hong Ye and asked quietly: “Is the Emperor still in Shao Country now?”

“在。”红叶答得很不情愿。

“Yes.” Hong Ye replied very unwillingly.

“那……”凌萧敛眸道:“这次邵国的事情,是皇上参与的吗?”

“Then…” Ling Xiao controlled his gaze: “Was the Emperor involved in Shao Country’s affair this time?”

红叶闻言,猛然看向凌萧,似是不明白凌萧为何作此感想一般。

Hong Ye heard and abruptly looked at Ling Xiao, appearing to not understand why Ling Xiao seemed to think of that..

凌萧抿唇道:“告诉我实话。”

Ling Xiao pursed his lips: “Tell me the truth.”

红叶撇头道:“我不清楚,我只接到了保护你的命令。”

Hong Ye turned away her head: “I am not clear, I only received the command to protect you.”

凌萧皱眉,又问道:“你不是被傅禹君带走吗?怎么从他身边来到这里的。”

Ling Xiao frowned and asked: “Weren’t you taken away by Fu Yujun? How are you here then?”

“略施小计。”红叶避重就轻。

“I know a trick or two.” Hong Ye avoided answering.

凌萧问:“傅禹君如何了?”

Ling Xiao asked: “How is Fu Yujun?”

红叶不悦:“公子你为何总想着傅禹君,所作所为竟都站在傅禹君那边,皇上才是您的夫君吶。”

Hong Ye was displeased: “Young Master, why do you always think about Fu Yujun, all your conducts and deeds are on Fu Yujun’s side. The Emperor is your husband.”

“……”凌萧被呛了一下,盯着红叶眨了眨眼,嘴角抽搐了两下,问道:“这话告诉你的。”

“……” Ling Xiao choked for a moment and stared at Hong Ye, blinking as the corner of his mouth twitched twice and he asked: “Who told you.”

“这还用说吗?牧国举国欢庆,再过十日,就是皇上册封皇君的日子,也就是皇上册封您的日子,现在牧国闹的沸沸扬扬,谁人不知道凌萧是将来的第一皇君?”

“Do I really need to explain it? The entire Mu Country is celebrating, in ten more days, it would be the day the Emperor titles a King Consort. That is also the day the Emperor confers a title upon you. Mu Country is abuzz with activity right now, who doesn’t know that the first King Consort in the future is Ling Xiao?”

“……”凌萧一愣,想起离开牧国之前皇帝的那道旨意,再有十天,确实是那旨意上的册封皇君的日子,可是……

“……” Ling Xiao stared blankly and thought back to the Mu Country Emperor’s decree when he left. There were ten more days, and it would be the day he would be titled King Consort, but…

凌萧脑子里浮现出皇帝那张脸,面上不由一阵灼热,心也跳快了几分,这一热一跳,心便乱了……

The Emperor’s face appeared in Ling Xiao’s mind and his face heated up. His heart also started to speed up. With the sudden warmth and jump, his heart was in chaos again…

他掩饰一般,转身躲过红叶的视线,转身往一旁而去。

Like he was hiding, he turned around to evade Hong Ye’s line of side and left.

    • Hohoho so many chapter not for free. In the end Ling still chose Emperor Xuan, even if Prince Fu practically was his martial art teacher. so Emperor Xuan got country expansion plus capable new general.

      Well, in ancient china, getting married when you’re around 12+ wasn’t anything new. He probably had the two around 15-16 years old, he’s over 30 xD

        Wow. I thought that just young girls were married to older man ect…not that they married young boys too!. Amazing. But then it is very strange that both of his sons are still unmarried, if the father had to marry so soon. I don t think that a child at that age wished to marry…
