第56章 聪明绝顶

Chapter 56: Highly Intelligent

皇帝千里迢迢的从牧国赶到邵国,还悄无声息的,凌萧隐约知道,他是有着什么目的。

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.

而这个目的,绝不是带自己回去。

And that purpose wasn’t to bring him back.

不然,那天晚上,他就能把自己带走了……

Otherwise, he could had taken him away that night…

想到这里,凌萧内心复杂万分,他不知自己是该庆幸的多一些,还是难过多一些。

Thinking to this point, Ling Xiao felt extremely complicated. He didn’t know if he should be more happy or more sad.

不过,不管皇帝要如何,傅禹君如今身陷危机,他也不能不管。

However, regardless of the Emperor, now that Fu Yujun was in a crisis, he can’t just ignore it either.

一是凌萧做不到见死不救,二是,万一傅禹君输了,找来的是大皇子,自己落在大皇子手里,那有好结果吗?

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?

再假设,自己真被红叶给护住了,没有落在邵国大皇子的手里,那也是落在牧国皇帝的手里……

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…

这若在落在皇帝的手里,自己的结果……

If he were to fall into the Emperor’s hands, then the conclusion for him would be…

凌萧猛然的打了个冷颤……他连忙甩头阻止自己想下去。

Ling Xiao suddenly trembled from the chill… he quickly shook his head to stop himself from thinking any further down that lane.

不行,不管是为了自己还是其他什么,傅禹君这时候都不能出事!

This won’t do, no matter if it’s for himself or some other reason, he can’t let Fu Yujun have an accident!

不过要救傅禹君却也不是说救就能救的。

But trying to save Fu Yujun wasn’t something as easy as just saying it.

五万兵马对抗上三十万大军,凌萧不知道该称赞傅禹君一声好胆量,还该是骂他愚蠢。

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.

这无疑就是去送死,能救他的,只有现代的武器了,比如枪支,比如火药……

This was no doubt just throwing his life away. The only things that could save him now were modern weapons, like guns or gunpowder…

这般想着,凌萧目光横扫了密室一圈,望着角落边的木炭,墙壁石头里面含有的硝石,以及撒在周围防虫蚁还堆有备用的硫磺,眼中亮光一闪,心下有了主意,眼神便落到了肖锋的身上。

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.

他的这个主意,必须要有支持者。

His idea needed a supporter.

如此想着,凌萧走到了肖锋的身边坐下,望了望他身上的伤口,套近乎道:“肖侍卫,你的伤怎么样了?”

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?”

“没事,只是一些皮肉伤,公子别担心,属下会护你周全的。”肖锋忠诚的答道,但眼中却闪着奸诈,似乎在探究凌萧想什么。

“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.

凌萧嗤笑了一声,这种时候了,探究自己的想法有什么意思。

Ling Xiao sneered. It has already come to this point, what use was there to probe him?

这肖锋,他虽然不熟,但是也略有耳闻,平日里为人圆滑,武功虽然不好,但是计谋一堆堆,在傅禹君身边颇受重视,那次去牧国,傅禹君便将此人带上了,这次更是将自己托付给他。

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.

而这肖锋,也没有辜负傅禹君的厚待,这个危机的时刻,也是尽心尽力的为傅禹君办事。

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.

是个忠心可靠之人。

He was a loyal and reliable person.

凌萧这般想着,凑近肖锋,小声问道:“肖侍卫,担心二皇子吗?”

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?”

肖锋闻言一愣,沉默了下来,就这沉默,让凌萧明白,这肖锋是担忧的。

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.

见此,凌萧趁机假设,试探了下肖锋的意愿。

Ling Xiao seize this opportunity assuming that and tried to feel out Xiao Feng’s wish.

“若是我们出去救他……”

“If we were to go out and save him…”

“不可!”肖锋连忙皱眉打断了凌萧:“就我们这些人,且不说救不出皇子,贸然出去只会送死,何况,皇子交代属下的是,护公子周全,若是公子有事,属下怎么跟皇子交代。”

“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?”

凌萧闻言,激道:“他若是死了,你跟他交代什么?”

Ling Xiao incited him after he heard that, “If he were to die, what explaining would you need to do to him?”

“!”肖锋闻言,猛然一震,对这话有着强烈的反感,他盯着凌萧,目含不满。

“!” Xiao Feng suddenly shook at those words, having an intense bad reaction toward it. He stared at Ling Xiao, his eyes full of discontent.

而凌萧对视着肖锋这样的目光,眼中尽是坦然。

Ling Xiao’s eyes were calm in face of Xiao Feng’s sight.

肖锋见面前之人,目光有神,面色淡然,一幅沉稳之姿,虽然身板不大,但凌萧这般模样,明显让他冷静了下来。

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.

他轻轻蹙眉,心里头却也接受了凌萧的说法。

He slightly frowned, but in his mind, he still accepted what Ling Xiao said.

他沉默了半响,眼中突然闪过一丝狡诈的问道:“公子这般说,可是已经有了什么主意?”

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?”

凌萧讶然的挑眉,这肖锋不愧是傅禹君看重的人,这么短的时间内,就反应过来,看出他的企图了。

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.

凌萧轻笑,倒也没有打算再继续绕弯子下去,便说道:“我确实有法子救他,但是,我先问你一句。”

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.”

“这大家伙,可都愿意和我一起出去?可是不一定会有命回来的。”

“Is everyone here willing to go out with me? They might not return alive.”

肖锋闻言,严肃的皱起了眉头,眼瞧着凌萧,他犹豫着说道:“公子,你可否将办法告诉属下,属下带人去办,你留着,不要出去,若是你有事……”

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…”

凌萧嗤笑一声,打断了肖锋的顾虑道:“你可想过,若是你们都死了,我就算留在这里,结果又能好多少?还不如带上我,大家一起共进退,何况我并不觉得我们会输。”

Ling Xiao sneered and break off Xiao Feng’s apprehensions, “You need to think, if you guys were all to die, even if I stay here, would my end be any better? Might as well just take me along and work with everyone. Besides, I don’t think we will lose.”

见凌萧如此有把握,肖锋不由好奇的问道:“公子,究竟有什么办法?”

Seeing Ling Xiao so sure of the outcome, Xiao Feng curiously asked, “Young Master, just what do you have planned?”

凌萧闻言,想了想,扬眉说道:“我知道一物事,可以让军队以一敌百,让二皇子反败为胜。”

Ling Xiao thought a bit hearing the question, raised his eyebrow and stated, “I know an item that can utterly defeat an army and allow the Second Prince to turn the tide.”

肖锋闻言一惊:“此话当真?”

Xiao Feng was alarmed, “Are you serious?”

凌萧点头,肖锋见此,沉默的抿唇,他心知二皇子如今深陷危机,倘若他真的抵挡不住,他们在这里也是不安全的。

Xiao Feng went silent and pursed his lips at Ling Xiao’s nod. He knew that the Second Prince was deeply in a crisis, if he really wasn’t able to stop them, it wasn’t safe for them here either.

若真有一物事,可以让二皇子反败为胜,确实要比他们呆在这里死守着要好。

If there really was something that could allow the Second Prince to turn the tide then it really would be better than them staying here in hiding.

这般想着,肖锋咬了咬牙,似是下了重大的决定一般,起身跪在了凌萧面前:“如此,属下愿跟随公子,听从公子安排。”

Thinking that way, Xiao Feng clenched his teeth and appeared as if he had made a great decision as he got up and knelt on his knees before Ling Xiao, “If it’s like that, then this subordinate will follow Young Master and obey to your plans.”

众人见肖锋如此,也都起身跪在了凌萧的身前,符合道:“属下等,愿跟随公子,听从公子安排。”

Everyone else all rose and knelt before Ling Xiao when they saw Xiao Feng do so, “We subordinates will also follow the Young Master and obey your plans.”

凌萧不是没见过这么多人跪在他的面前,实际上,曾经在皇帝身边的时候,他受伤的那次,众人也因为皇帝的动作,朝他跪过,但凌萧明白,那是侍卫们碍于皇帝的龙威。

It’s not that Ling Xiao had never seen so many people kneel before him, back when he was by the Emperor’s side and he had been injured, the people present had all knelt due to the Emperor’s action and knelt in his direction. Ling Xiao understands that they were doing so because of the Emperor’s dragon prestige.

而此时,这些人的下跪都是对着他,是真正的朝着他的,男儿志在四方,此等场面,让凌萧热血沸腾,心脏砰然跳动,他站起了身,俯视着人群,半响激动的说不出话来。

And right now, these people were all kneeling to him and were truly doing so toward him. A man aspires to travel far and make one’s mark, with this scene, it fired up Ling Xiao and his heart started to pound. He stood, overlooking the group and was speechless from excitement.

在众人看来,凌萧却是颇具气势的起身,小小的身板,淡定而从容的面对他们的服从,不卑不亢,这姿态,不由让众人信服了几分,更为服从的伏低了头。

From everyone else’s point of view, a rather imposing manner arose from Ling Xiao’s body–his small body. Furthermore, his calm and collected appearance as he faced their obedience, neither servile nor overbearing unconsciously made everyone have more a bit more confidence so they lowered their heads even more respectfully.

肖锋见状,抬头道:“公子,若这次您真能救出皇子,就是我们邵国的恩人,邵国上上下下,都将对您感恩戴德的。”

Xiao Feng raised his head seeing this, “Young Master, if you are really able to save the PRince, then you would be Shao Country’s benefactor. All of Shao Country would be deeply grateful to you.

凌萧被他的话惊醒,他微微平复了内心的激动,将他扶起,轻声道:“起来吧,如此,便信我罢。”

Ling Xiao was roused by those words of his and he slightly calmed his excited heart, supporting him up, and softly saying, “Stand up now, if it’s like this, then believe in me.”

虽是这般说,凌萧内心还是有些忐忑的。

Although he said it like that, Ling Xiao was still nervous within his heart.

他知道内幕,这里也有可以制造火药的原料。

He knew that internally, there were materials here that could be used to produce gunpowder.

万事具备。

Everything was here.

但是……

But….

凌萧虽然在现代的时候,因为好奇潜进化学实验室里,偷偷做过一次火药,并且成功了。

Although Ling Xiao had once sneakily made gunpowder in Jinhua University’s laboratory out of curiosity, and even succeed in modern times.

但是他从来没有在这个世界尝试过制作火药,而在现代化学实验室里头,原料都是他买现成的,这里的原料要是参加了他所不知道的物质,出了什么岔子……

He had never tried making gunpowder in this world. Plus, in the modern laboratory, all the materials he had used were ready-made. If there were some unknown matter he didn’t know in these materials that gets mixed in and something goes wrong…

凌萧叹气,虽然知道危险,现在却没有他犹豫的余地了,他只能期待一下他重生后的金手指能管用一下了。

Ling Xiao sighed, although he knew it was dangerous, there was no leeway for him to hesitate now. He could only try to see how effective the golden finger that he had gotten through his rebirth is.

这般想着,凌萧起身,指挥大家将原料搬到生火之处。

With those thoughts, Ling Xiao got up and directed everyone to move the materials to the fireplace.

红叶将所有事情看在眼里,默默的敛下了眸,穴道已经冲开了,绳子对她构不成威胁,她现在完全可以将凌萧掳走,带到皇帝的身边。

Hong Ye observed everything and silently looked down. Her acupuncture point has already been unblocked while ropes were nothing against her. She was completely capable of capturing Ling Xiao and bringing him to the Emperor’s side right now.

但是……

But…

红叶阴沉的敛下了眸,皇上如此厚爱这个凌萧,可凌萧却几次三番不领情,这着实让红叶恼火而不满。

Hong Ye gloomily hide her gaze. The Emperor pampered on Ling Xiao so much, yet this Ling Xiao never appreciated the kindness. This really made Hong Ye angry and resentful.

也让她想好好教训教训凌萧,但是,皇帝如此爱护凌萧,倘若自己出手,肯定会受到皇帝的责罚的……

She wanted to give Ling Xiao a good lesson but with how much the Emperor cherishes him, if she personally does something to him, she would definitely be punished by the Emperor…

红叶至今不敢明目张胆的讨厌凌萧,就是因为此。

This was the reason why Hong Ye did not dare to openly dislike Ling Xiao.

可如今,这凌萧自己作死,也怨不得她不出手帮忙了。

But now, Ling Xiao was courting death himself so it doesn’t even need her interference anymore.

她可是被“绑”着,被“束缚”着,“无能无力”呢。

She was “tied”, “restricted”, and “completely powerless”.

红叶低下了头,将自己面上的算计掩盖在阴影下。

Hong Ye lowered her head, hiding the trace of scheming on her face.

漫天火光,硝烟漫漫,三十万大军已经逼近了皇宫,此时,手握五万兵马,傅禹君已经抵抗了一个下午。

Fire could be seen everywhere with endless smoke. Three hundred thousand soldiers have already pressed forward to the imperial palace while Fu Yujun had already defended against them with fifty thousand for an entire afternoon.

五万兵马杀敌无数,受损甚小,傅禹君利用了自己的聪明,布下了一个又一个的陷阱,将大军一路一路引进了自己设下的陷阱当中,再将他们一一斩杀。

The fifty thousand troops and horses had killed numerous enemies while receiving only a little bit of damage. Fu Yujun had used his intelligence and arranged traps after traps, causing the other army to fall into traps one after another and killed the whole way.

但是,一个下午过去了,斩杀了无数的兵马……

Like that, an afternoon of slaughtering countless troops and horses have passed…

然而,从皇宫高台俯下,那守在皇宫外的兵马却只多不少。

However, looking out from the high Imperial Palace, the number of troops and horses that stood outside waiting were only more and not less.

傅商君他的好皇兄,又从其他地方得到了兵马了么!

Fu Shangjun, that great Imperial Brother of his, somehow obtained more troops and horses from other places!

是他人的投诚?

Did someone surrender?

不,或许是他的好皇兄受了他国之人的蛊惑,暗中做了什么交易。

No, perhaps that great Imperial Brother of his had been urged by another country and made some kind of transaction in the dark.

傅禹君阴沉了面色,如果只是皇兄要做这君王,他让出也不无不可,但是,他的皇兄他太了解了,胸无大志,只知道吃喝玩乐,怎么会突然间谋反,他背后必定有人教唆。

Fu Yujun’s face darken. If that Imperial Brother of his only wanted to be the Sovereign King, it was not impossible for him to let him. But he understands that Imperial Brother of his too well, he has no aspiration and only knows how to eat and play, how could he suddenly plot a rebellion? There must be someone instigating it behind.

而这个人很可能是他国之人……

And this person was very likely to be someone from another country…

傅禹君脑中一闪而过,那牧国皇帝的面身影,瞬间握紧了拳头。

The figure of the Mu Country Emperor flashed through Fu Yujun’s mind, he clenched his fist.

邵国绝对不能落入他国之手,这一次,即使是战死,这皇宫也得死守!

Shao Country cannot fall into another country’s hands! This time, even if they have to fight to death, he still has to defend this Imperial Palace!

傅禹君咬牙转身,却倏然看见,自己的士兵,疲倦不堪的四处坐卧,体力明显都透支了……

Fu Yujun clenched his teeth and turned around, only to see his soldiers, completely tired out and lying all over. Their physical strength was clearly overused…

而皇宫外,那些人却都精神奕奕,斗气十足。

Meanwhile, the people outside the palace were all in great spirits, their grudge completely high.

这样,如何斗得过?

With things like this, how could they fight back?

傅禹君突然心生出一股绝望,他难道就要这样输了吗!

Despair suddenly rose in his heart, was he really going to lose like this?!

突然,“轰!”的一声巨响,惊得傅禹君回头看去。

Sudden, a great “boom!” sounded, startling Fu Yujun to look back.

便见皇宫外,一片浓烟,那处不知被何物砸出了一个窟窿。

What he saw outside the palace was thick smoke, and that place that was smashed with an unknown item was a hole.

而在窟窿周遭的士兵,要么就是被那物砸伤了,要么就是突然间似是中了邪一般歪歪扭扭的昏厥在旁。

Within the surroundings of the hole, the soldiers were either injured from the blast, or like if they were suddenly injected with something evil that caused them to faint crookedly on the side.

突然的变故,砸蒙了傅商君的军队,士兵人对未知的事物充满了惶恐,都自发自觉的远离的那事发之处。

The unexpected unforeseen event, smashed Fu Shangjun’s army, causing the soldiers to all be terrified of the unknown item. They all spontaneously distance themselves from the spot.

傅禹君讶然,紧紧的盯着下方。

Fu Yujun was astounded and stared closely at the scene below.

不久,便见远处奔来一辆敞顶马车,马车趁着士兵不敢接触那事发之处,从那处,直直朝皇宫奔来。

Not long after, a horse carriage could be seen arriving from the distance. The horse carriage took the chance when the soldiers did not dare to go near the matter and rushed in, rushing straight at the Imperial Palace.

而马车中间放了许许多多的竹管,周围围了一圈又一圈的带刀侍卫,侍卫手里拿着火把,面上蒙着面巾。

Placed within the horse carriage were numerous bamboo pipes while sword carrying guards were circled around it. The guards would be holding a handle of fire had shrouds on their faces.

马车前面坐着的两人,一人驾着马车,一人坐在旁边,也都蒙着面巾。

The two people that were sitting in the front, one guiding the carriage while the other just sat by his side, were also wearing shrouds.

傅禹君觉得这身影很是熟悉,但隔得太远,他也瞧不清楚这些到底是什么人。

Fu Yujun felt this figure was quite familiar, but because he was too far, he also wasn’t able to clearly see just who these people were.

只是瞧见,这些人莽撞的冲进了傅商君的军队内,一路不管不顾的朝皇宫奔来。

He could only see that these people were rudely and impetuously smashing through Fu Shangjun’s army, rushing straight for the Imperial Palace without regards for anything else.

他们选了从刚刚被砸了一个窟窿的地方驶来,确实很明智,士兵们不敢随意靠近,但是那处也因为不甚平坦,严重阻碍了马车的前进。

They chose the area that they had just blasted a hole in and galloped in, it was quite a wise choice. The soldiers did not dare to randomly go near, but because that place wasn’t really level either, it was a great hindrance for allowing the carriage forward.

士兵们回神,俨然开始朝马车上的人攻击。

After the soldiers came to their senses, they started to attack the people on the carriage.

傅禹君看着他们驾着马车,艰难的驰骋在那些士兵的刀刃间,暗自捏了一把冷汗,这些人明显不是跟傅商君一伙的,不然不会受到攻击。

Fu Yujun watched their carriage that galloped forward difficultly under those soldier’s attack and inwardly cold sweated. These people were clearly not part of Fu Shangjun, otherwise, they would not be attacked.

受到攻击的只会是自己这边的人,他们的目的也很明显,想越过大军朝皇宫驶来。

The people that would be attacked would only be those on his side. Their purpose for coming toward them were quite clear, trying to cross over the army and arrive at the imperial palace.

但是,想靠着这马车冲进皇宫?

However, they wanted to rely on the horse carriage to rush into the palace?

也太胡闹了!

It’s too willful!

傅禹君不知不觉抓紧了栏杆上的扶手,手被握的泛白,那扶手上深深陷下了几个手指印子。

Fu Yujun unconsciously gripped the armrest on the railing, holding so tightly his hands were white. A few deep traces of fingerprints were on the armrest.

眼见着周围的士兵快要围了上去,傅禹君心跳到了嗓子眼上。

Seeing how the surrounding soldiers were almost completely surrounding them, Fu Yujun’s heart jumped to his throat.

凌萧坐在驾着马车的肖锋旁边,也瞧见了士兵们的动作,他倏然一声命令,便见周围的侍卫,抓起一个个的竹筒,点燃竹筒外的引线,便朝围上来的士兵们扔去。

Ling Xiao sat next to Xiao Feng who was driving the horse carriage and saw the actions of the soldiers. He suddenly gave an order, causing the surrounding guards to each grab a bamboo tube and ignite the fuse of it, then throwing it in the directions of the soldiers.

“轰”

“Boom!”

“轰”

“Boom!”

“轰”

“Boom!”

几声与刚才无异的巨响,砸得下方地面满目苍夷,烟尘滚滚,一时间竟让傅禹君在上方看不清下面的局势。

A few loud sounds like the one from before sounded as they smashed onto the ground and caused smoke to rise. The smoke and dust surged, causing FU Yujun at the top to be unable to see the situation below for the moment.

待尘埃散开,傅禹君才看见,下方士兵被击得溃散不成样子,周围倒了一片的士兵,一动不动,不知死活。

When the dust cleared, Fu Yujun was then able to see that the soldiers below had all been ruined beyond recognition. The surroundings were scattered with pieces of soldiers, motionless and unknown if they were dead or alive.

而那马车上的人却毫发无损,坚定的朝皇宫驶来。

Meanwhile, not a single hair was harm on the people within the carriage as they firmly headed to the palace.

傅禹君惊讶了神情,这马车竟然如此厉害,不,该说厉害的应该是那些侍卫们扔出的那物。

Fu Yujun had a face of amazement. This carriage was truly amazing, rather, it should be said that those things the guards on the carriage had threw out were amazing.

傅禹君收敛了神情,不由再次定睛看向坐在驾驶位的两人。

Fu Yujun cleared up his face and then stared at the two seating in the driver position.

其中一人专心驾着马车,一人时不时回头叫喊着什么,神情状似是观察着周围的形式,明显他才是这群人的指挥者。

One was concentrating on driving the carriage while the other man would turn around to yell something once in a while. He appeared to be constantly observing his surroundings, so it was clear he was the commander of this group.

这人,身着一身青色锦衣,面对此等状况,从容淡然,面对如此大军,他不慌不忙,指挥有序,让人从心底对其产生敬佩。

This man was dressed in cyan embroidered clothes. He was tranquil and calm facing this situation and army. His calm and unhurried orders made on feel admiration for him from the bottom of their hearts.

傅禹君不由多看了他几眼,却觉得这人的眉目与身形几分熟识……

Fu Yujun couldn’t help but look at him a few more times, and he felt that the general appearance and figure of his looks somewhat familiar…

似是……

It looks like…

他愕然瞪大了双眼,心底隐隐闪过一个念头。

His eyes widen in shock as a faint figure flashed through his mind.

这人莫不是……他要肖锋保护着的凌萧!

Wasn’t this person… the man he had Xiao Feng protect, Ling Xiao?!

傅禹君被自己的想法惊得一身冷汗,便见那人解下了自己的面巾,面巾下,那清秀的面庞,精致的五官,正是他所想之人。

Fu Yujun had frighten himself with that thought and cold sweat filled him. Then he saw the man take off the shroud, and under it, was the delicate and pretty face, it was the man he considered his.

傅禹君咬牙,面上似怒似喜,他恨恨然的转身下楼,忙开了宫门,带人冲了出去,将马车团团护了起来。

Fu Yujun clenched his teeth, anger on his face as he stomped down the stairs and quickly opened the palace door. Bringing his men with him to surround the carriage.

凌萧见此,知道傅禹君派人接应他们来了,不由松了口气,他腿软的从马车上下来,脚才刚一接触到地面,便被一道外力,扯过了一边。

Ling Xiao understood that Fu Yujun was sending people to assist them when he saw that and he heaved a breath. His legs had gone so weak that he wasn’t able to get off the carriage. He had only just placed a feet on the ground when he was suddenly pulled to the side by an external force.

随即,脸颊撞到了一道厚实的肉墙,鼻息间竟是男人浓重的汗臭味。

As such, his face knocked against a sturdy meat wall, the thick manly body odor filled his nose.

凌萧皱起了眉头,猛然推开了来人,便见一脸狼狈的傅禹君。

Ling XIao wrinkled his brows and abruptly pushed away the other man, only to see a sorry-faced Fu Yujun.

他面上沾满了灰尘与鲜血,身上溅满了鲜血,也不知这些鲜血是他自己的还是他人的。

His face was covered in dust and blood while his body was also splashed with blood. He didn’t know if all of this blood were other people’s or his own.

他此时望着凌萧,面上的表情似是担忧又似是愤怒,又状似惊喜,又含着几分不可置信。

Right now he was looking at Ling Xiao, the expression he was wearing seemed to be anger while also carrying surprise with a bit of incredulous.

“你怎么到这里来了呢!”傅禹君呵责,眉目间带着浓浓的心疼。

“Why did you come here?!” Fu Yujun berated, his face carrying great distress.

凌萧被他的表情震到,有些不自在的低下了头道:“这不是来救你嘛。”

Ling Xiao was shaken by his expression, and lowered his head a bit uncomfortable, “Aren’t we here to save you.”

“可……”

“Cough…”

“好了!,先别说了,先对付面前的事吧。”凌萧打断了傅禹君,望向围上来的大军。

“Alright, let’s talk later and defeat these guys first.” Ling Xiao interrupted Fu Yujun, looking at the army that was approaching.

剩下的三万多兵马,全部倾巢而出,将凌萧、傅禹君等人护在了里面,外面却是黑压压的傅商君的军队。

The remaining thirty thousand troops all came out to fight, surrounding Ling Xiao and Fu Yujun to protect them. While outside, the shady Fu Shangjun’s army remained.

人数方面,傅商君明显占了上风,傅禹君已经在做了最坏的打算,想着怎么把凌萧保下来了。

Based on the number of people. Fu Shangjun was obviously winning. Fu Yujun had already calculated the worst possible outcome, trying to think how he should protect Ling Xiao.

凌萧却倏然又爬上了马车,傅禹君一惊,忙拉住他道:“你这是做什么,站在上面,那边的弓箭手会把你当靶子的。”

But Ling Xiao suddenly climbed back onto the carriage, startling Fu Yujun. He hurried pulled him and asked, “What are you doing? The archers on that side will make you a target if you stand on it.”

“没事!“凌萧甩开他:”所有事情都是有风险的,你只管让那些人别靠近我们,接下来的就看秘密武器了!”

“It’s fine!” Ling Xiao shook him off, “Everything has danger to it, you just need to make sure those people don’t come near me. The rest will count on the secret weapon!”

秘密武器?

Secret weapon?

傅禹君疑惑。肖锋见此,来到傅禹君面前禀告道:“皇子,是叫‘火药’的东西,是公子制出来的,威力极大,能以一敌百,也就是那东西。”

Fu Yujun was doubtful. Xiao Feng arrived before and reported to him seeing his look, “Prince, it’s something called ‘gunpowder’. Young Master made it, the power is tremendous. That thing can allow one person to defeat a hundred.”

肖锋指了指马车上的竹筒,傅禹君看了看,马车上的一个个竹筒并不起眼,有肖锋说的这么厉害么,傅禹君狐疑,似是知道傅禹君的怀疑,肖锋解释道:“皇子您别看它不起眼,您刚才听到的巨响就是这东西点燃的时候,发出来的。”

Xiao Feng pointed at the bamboo tubes in the carriage., directing Fu Yujun’s sight to the bamboo tubes that were not impressive looking at all on the carriage. Was it really as impressive as Xiao Feng said? Fu Yujun was really suspicious which seemed to

傅禹君讶然,便见凌萧指挥着他所带来的人,站在了马车上,外围的那群人站在举着盾牌,里面的一圈人将竹筒一个个点燃扔向凌萧所指向的远处……

Fu Yujun was astounded as he watched Ling Xiao direct the people he brought with him, standing on top of the carriage. The surrounding men all lifted their shields while the people within all ignited their bamboo tubes and threw then at the places Ling Xiao indicated far away…

“轰!”

“Boom!”

每一个扔出去的竹筒,随即都能听到一声巨响,接下来就是敌方的哀嚎,以及那成片成片倒下的士兵。

With every bamboo tube thrown, a loud sound could immediately be heard. Next, the enemy’s anguished wailing as well as the sound of soldiers collapsing could be heard.

这东西真有如此大的威力!是小奴才制出来的?

This thing really has formidable power! This was made by this little servant?

小奴才竟然这般厉害!

To think that this little servant was this amazing!

傅禹君看向凌萧,便见那小奴才,威风凛凛的站在马车边,指挥着众人作战,意气风发。

Fu Yujun looked at Ling Xiao and saw him standing by the carriage majestically, directing everyone in combat at full mettle.

小奴才面上一派从容不迫,不慌不忙的动作,似乎对这场战役的胜利胸有成竹,这无疑鼓舞了在场的士兵。

On the little servant’s face was calm and his actions were composed. It was as if this battle’s victory was already in grasp, this undoubtedly boosted the morals of the soldiers.

让人从身到心的对他表现出信服。

It made people display their faith in him from their body to their hearts.

傅禹君眼看着,心砰然跳动,眼中逐渐呈现出痴迷。

Fu Yujun watched, his heart throbbing as obession gradually appeared in his eyes.

这便是他喜欢的小奴才呵~

Sigh, this was the little servant he liked~

如此的与众不同。

So different from the masses.

明明怕得要死,在关键时刻,却从不会抛下任何人离去。

He obviously feared death, yet at a crucial moment, he did not abandon anyone and leave.

明明胆小的要命,关键时刻,却能如此威风凛凛、意气风发。

He was obviously extremely timid, yet at a crucial moment, was able to be so majestic and high-spirited.

明明才华出众,却总将自己隐藏在人群之中。

He was obviously extremely talented, yet always hid himself within a crowd.

是那么的低调……

He was so low-key…

好在,自己还是发现了他,发现与众不同的他。

Luckily he had found him the him who was so different from the masses.

傅禹君为自己没有错过凌萧而感到庆幸,为自己为他着迷而感到开心。

Fu Yujun rejoiced for himself for not missing Ling Xiao, and also felt happy for being captivated by him.

他想,这辈子都不会有人再让他如此心动了。

He thought there there was probably no one who could make his heart move like this in this lifetime.

这边,凌萧的指挥精准到位,那边傅商君等人连连被挫之后,也终于有人注意到了是凌萧在搞鬼。

At Ling Xiao’s side where he was accurately directing and at Fu Yujun’s side where men constantly blocked the people from advancing, someone finally noticed it was Ling Xiao’s doing.

他们终于把重点要对付的对象移到了凌萧的身上,弓箭手手里头的弓箭对准的都是站在马车上专注指挥的凌萧。

They finally made Ling Xiao the important one to handle first and all the archers aimed their bows and arrows at the standing and directing Ling Xiao.

傅商君一声令下,隐藏在暗处的弓箭手发力,弓箭便朝凌萧射来。

After Fu Yujun’s orders, a hidden archer sent out an arrow toward Ling Xiao.

傅禹君眼尖的看见,一把扯过凌萧躲开了几处暗箭,瞬间阴晦了神色。

Fu Yujun had keen eyes and saw it, pulling Ling Xiao out of the way of the hidden attack, his expression gloomy in that moment.

凌萧茫然的瞪大了眼,心有余悸的靠在傅禹君的身上,脚有些发软。

Ling Xiao blankly widen his eyes, leaning against Fu Yujun fearfully, his legs somewhat weak.

差一点就……就见阎王了……

He almost… went to see his Maker…

傅禹君见此心疼万分,他安慰般拍了拍凌萧的头,望着不远处的烽火硝烟,傅禹君心里下了一个重大的决定。

Fu Yujun’s heart pained seeing that, he comfortingly patted Ling Xiao’s head, gazing at the distant fire and smoke. Fu Yujun made a great decision in his heart.

他深呼吸了一口气,眷念一般凑到凌萧面上印上一吻,凑到他耳边轻声交代道:“若是我不慎身亡,邵国就交到你手里了。”

He took a deep breath and touchingly laid a kiss on Ling Xiao’s face, then whispered into his ear, “If I do not win and die, then I will leave Shao Country in your hands.”

说着,他不知从哪拿出一个沉甸的包裹,快手塞进了凌萧的怀中,伸手夺过了肖锋的佩剑,将凌萧推到肖锋面前,叮嘱道:“誓死要保护好他,知道吗?”

Saying those words, Fu Yujun took out a bundle from somewhere and squeezed it into Ling Xiao’s arms quickly. He reached out and seized Xiao Feng’s sword and pushed Ling Xiao in front of him, warning him again, “Protect him with your life, understood?”

肖锋接住凌萧,见到傅禹君严肃而不可拒绝的表情,强压下疑惑,应道:“是。”

Xiao Feng caught Ling Xiao and pushed down his confusion as he saw Fu Yujun’s solemn and unable to reject expression, he complied, “Yes.”

“不是,你要干嘛?”凌萧找回了自己的被吓丢的魂,不安的看着傅禹君问道。

“Wait, what are you trying to do?” Ling Xiao returned to his senses after being frighten and restlessly asking Fu Yujun.

傅禹君朝他咧嘴一笑,露出了洁白的牙齿,宛如在牧国初见之时,那般开怀。

Fu Yujun revealed a smile at him, showing his pure white teeth. It looked like when he had first met him in Mu Country, that kind of unrestrained smile.

“擒贼先擒王。”说着,他转身一跃,用轻功冲了出去。

“To capture evil, first capture the king.” With those words, he turned and leaped, his sword rushing out.

擒贼先擒王?

To capture evil, first capture the King?

TL Note: Solve the main root of the problem

他要去抓傅商君???

He wanted to go catch Fu Shangjun???

凌萧讶然,忙朝前跑了两步,阻止道:“不是,傅禹君你回来,那边的火药掺杂了迷药!你会被迷昏的!”

Ling Xiao was surprised and hurriedly ran forward two steps, trying to stop him. “Wait, come back Fu Yujun! The gunpowder over there was mixed with knockout drugs! You will lose consciousness!”

傅禹君闻言回头看了凌萧一眼,这一眼表达的讯息很多,也让凌萧明白,傅禹君是不可能回头的。

Fu Yujun heard and turned to look at him. His eyes expressed many things, and it also made clear to Ling Xiao, Fu Yujun would not turn back.

他已经下定了决心,好在,自己的话被他听见了,许是迷药他能知晓,也能避开吧。

He had already made his determination. Fortunately he had heard him and at least knew about the knockout drugs, so he could at least avoid it.

凌萧抱着侥幸,捧着沉甸甸的包裹,他低头一看,却发现里面竟然是邵国玉玺以及遗诏……

Ling Xiao caught it by luck and held the heavy bundle. He lowered his head to look at it and unexpectedly found that it was the Shao Country’s Jade Ruler Seal along with the posthumous edict from the previous Emperor…

这么重要的东西!

Such an important thing!

凌萧突然觉得手很烫,差点就将手中之物给扔了出去了,最后他还是默默的收了起来。

Ling Xiao suddenly felt his hand was burning and almost threw out the thing in his hand. But in the end, he still silently took it.

这傅禹君,太不靠谱了,居然把这么重要的东西丢给自己!

This Fu Yujun was too unreliable, to think he threw such an important thing to him!

自己可管不住!

He can’t take care of it!

他咬牙,又爬回了马车,盯着远方跃来跃去的身影,暗暗拽紧了手掌,指挥起众人砸火药,为傅禹君开出一条路来!

He gritted his teeth and climbed back on the carriage. He stared at the figuring leaping far away and he grip his hand, directing everyone where to throw the gunpowder again. He was going to help Fu Yujun make a way through!

傅禹君的做法无疑不是现在最好的办法!

Fu Yujun’s way of handling it was undoubtedly not the best way!

皇帝坐在高处,默默的注视着底下的一切,目光最后定格在站在马车上专注指挥的凌萧,抿紧了唇。

The Emperor sat up high, silently watching everything that happened below. His sight finally fixed itself onto Ling Xiao who sat on the carriage, his lips pursed tightly.

这个小太监,倒是让自己刮目相看呐。

This little eunuch really gave him a whole new level of respect for him.

有如此才能,倒是能理解他为何几次三番想要逃宫了。

With such talent, he could understand why he kept trying to escape the palace.

呆在小小的后宫,确实委屈了。

He really was wronged staying in that small harem.

果然,对待他该是要特别一些么。

As expected, he needed to treat him more specially.

皇帝沉思着,站起了身。

The Emperor contemplated and then got up.

皇帝面上神色不定,守在旁边的侍卫见此,以为皇帝要发怒,连忙跪伏在地请罪道:“皇上息怒,兰将军马上就到了,绍国二皇子逃不掉。”

The Emperor’s expression was unsettled, causing the guards by his side to believe the Emperor was angry. They promptly crouched on the floor and beg for forgiveness, “Your Majesty, please calm down. General Lan will be here at once, the Shao Country’s Second Prince will not be able to run away.”

皇帝闻言,轻瞥了身后的侍卫一眼,侍从意识到自己不该随意揣测圣意,瞬间吓得满身冷汗,半响,皇帝轻哼一声,转身悠悠的道:“走吧,下去看看。”,

The Emperor gave a light glance at the imperial guard behind him at what he heard. The chamberlain became aware that he should not randomly guess what he was thinking and he was frightened into cold sweat. After a while, the Emperor gave a soft hmph and turned around, “Let’s go and take a look down below.”

“是。”侍从颓然松了口气,领命跟随。

“Yes.” The chamberlain let out a breath of relief, accepting the order.

看来,皇帝并没有发怒,反之,他心情还不错,不然,自己如此揣测圣意,犯了大忌,皇帝不会这么轻易放过自己。

It looks like the Emperor did not get angry, rather, his mood was still pretty good. Otherwise, the Emperor would not let him off so easily for already counting it as a victory, doing a taboo.
