Chapter 56: Highly Intelligent
The Emperor had rushed over thousands of miles from Mu Country to Shao Country silently. Ling Xiao vaguely knew that he had a purpose for doing so.
And that purpose wasn’t to bring him back.
Otherwise, he could had taken him away that night…
Thinking to this point, Ling Xiao felt extremely complicated. He didn’t know if he should be more happy or more sad.
However, regardless of the Emperor, now that Fu Yujun was in a crisis, he can’t just ignore it either.
First, Ling Xiao wasn’t able to just let him die. Second, in the case Fu Yujun loses and the one that comes knocking is the First Prince, would he be able to have a good end if he lands in his hands?
And assuming that if he really was protected by Hong Ye and doesn’t land in the First Prince’s hand, he would still land in the Emperor’s hands…
If he were to fall into the Emperor’s hands, then the conclusion for him would be…
Ling Xiao suddenly trembled from the chill… he quickly shook his head to stop himself from thinking any further down that lane.
This won’t do, no matter if it’s for himself or some other reason, he can’t let Fu Yujun have an accident!
But trying to save Fu Yujun wasn’t something as easy as just saying it.
Fifty thousand troops and horses standing off against a three hundred thousand army, Ling Xiao doesn’t know if he should praise Fu Yujun for his great courage or scold him for being stupid.
This was no doubt just throwing his life away. The only things that could save him now were modern weapons, like guns or gunpowder…
Thinking to that point, Ling Xiao’s gaze swept around him and eyed the charcoal in the corner. The stone walls contained saltpeter while the stuff that was spread around within the surroundings to ward against bugs contained sulfur. His eyes flashed and a plan formed in his mind. His eyes finally fell onto Xiao Feng.
His idea needed a supporter.
With those thoughts, Ling Xiao walked and sat down next to Xiao Feng, looking at the wounds on his body, he friendly asked: “Imperial guard Xiao, how are your injuries?”
“It’s fine, it’s just some flesh injuries, Young Master does not need to worry, this subordinate will protect you.” Xiao Feng loyally replied, but his eyes has a glint of deceit, trying to see what Ling Xiao was thinking.
Ling Xiao sneered. It has already come to this point, what use was there to probe him?
Although he was not familiar with Xiao Feng, he had still heard about him. His ordinary conduct was smooth and evasive, although his martial arts were good, he has strategies upon strategies. He was very valued by Fu Yujun’s side. Last time Fu Yujun went to Mu Country, he had brought him along, and now he had entrusted him to him.
This Xiao Feng also did not fail to live up to Fu Yujun’s generous treatment. In the moment of crisis, he still did his best to help Fu Yujun.
He was a loyal and reliable person.
Thinking to that point, Ling Xiao went nearer to him and asked in a hush voice, “Imperial Guard Xiao, are you worried about the Second Prince?”
Xiao Feng stared blankly at the question and went silent. With this silence, it was clear to Ling Xiao that this Xiao Feng was worried.
Ling Xiao seize this opportunity assuming that and tried to feel out Xiao Feng’s wish.
“If we were to go out and save him…”
“No!” Xiao Feng immediately frowned and interrupted Ling Xiao, “With just these few men, not to mention we would be unable to save the Prince, we would only be throwing away our lives if we rashly went out. What’s more, the Prince told this subordinate to completely protect the Young Master. If something were to happen to the Young Master, then how would this subordinate explain to the Prince?”
Ling Xiao incited him after he heard that, “If he were to die, what explaining would you need to do to him?”
“!” Xiao Feng suddenly shook at those words, having an intense bad reaction toward it. He stared at Ling Xiao, his eyes full of discontent.
Ling Xiao’s eyes were calm in face of Xiao Feng’s sight.
Xiao Feng faced the other man, whose eyes were mysterious and his face calm. This kind of steady beauty, although his body wasn’t big, it also calmed him down.
He slightly frowned, but in his mind, he still accepted what Ling Xiao said.
He went silent for a long time before a trace of cunning flitted through his eyes, he asked, “If Young Master asks in such a way, does it mean you already have a plan?”
Ling XIao raised an eyebrow in surprise. This Xiao Feng was worthy of being someone important to Fu Yujun, in such a short time, he had already reacted and saw through his attempt.
Ling Xiao lightly smiled and did not plan to keep beating around the bush, he plainly stated, “I do have a way to save him, however, I will ask you a question first.”
“Is everyone here willing to go out with me? They might not return alive.”
Xiao Feng solemnly purse his brows at the question, and he looked at Ling Xiao, hesitantly saying, “Young Master, can you tell the way to this subordinate, and this one will take men to do it. You stay behind and don’t go out, if something happens to you…”
