第59章 宽恕包容

Chapter 59: Forgiveness and Tolerance

氤氲的水雾,弥漫在房间,凌萧坐在水池中,盯着岸边的令牌发呆。

The misty water saturated the room, Ling Xiao was in a pool of water, staring blankly at the command plate ashore.

皇帝是真的放过自己了……

The Emperor was really letting him off…

不可置信一般,凌萧用了洗浴的借口,从皇帝身前逃了出来。

It felt so unbelievable. He had used the excuse of wanting a bath to escape from the Emperor’s hold.

然后被皇帝身边的侍从带到了浴池这里。

He was then led to the bath here by the chamberlain beside the Emperor.

凌萧轻叹了口气,拿过令牌在眼前晃了晃。

Ling Xiao softly sighed and shook the command plate a bit.

有了这个东西,今后在皇宫不需要提心吊胆,在皇帝身边,也不需要战战兢兢。

With this thing, he would not have to be so scared and always be on an edge in the palace. Nor would he be trembling with fear all the time beside the Emperor.

按理说是这样,但是真的能吗?

Although he says that, was it really possible?

凌萧盯着令牌沉思,转而眸光一闪,抿唇将令牌紧紧的握在手间。

Ling Xiao continued to contemplate on it as he stared at the command plate. A flash of light went through his eyes and he pursed his lips, tightly holding it in his hands.

或许可以一试。

Perhaps he can test it.

“公子?”门口传来叫唤。

“Young Master?” A call for him came through the door.

凌萧回神,朝外应了一声:“什么事。”

Ling Xiao returned to his senses and answered to the call outside, “What is it?”

“皇上等您过去。”侍从说道。

“The Emperor is waiting for you.”

凌萧一愣,才发现,自己出来泡澡已经过去很久了,估计是皇帝等得不耐烦了,差人过来催了。

Ling Xiao was surprised and then noticed that he had actually been in the bath for a long time. The Emperor probably became impatient and had someone come get him.

思及此,凌萧从池中起身,披上侍从给他拿过的那套贴身白衣,跟着侍从再次来到了皇帝的房间。

With those thoughts, Ling Xiao stood up and wore the close-fitting white clothes the chamberlain held up for him. And followed him to the Emperor’s room.

皇帝已然坐在了桌边,桌面上摆满了一盘盘的菜色,显然是到了皇帝用餐的时间。

The table was covered in various dishes, showing that it was time for the Emperor to eat. He was already sitting by the table.

只是皇帝的面前,摆着未动的碗筷,很明显,他还没有用餐。

But in front of the Emperor was a bowl and chopsticks that had not been moved yet, it was clear he had not ate.

凌萧习惯性的走过去,朝皇帝行了一礼,正打算伺候皇帝用餐。

Ling Xiao walked over and by habit, saluted to the Emperor once and planned to serve the Emperor as he ate.

皇帝先一步打断了凌萧的动作,用眼神示意了凌萧坐下。

But the Emperor interrupted Ling Xiao’s action and used his eyes to tell him to sit.

凌萧一愣,这才想起,自己早就不是那个伺候皇帝的凌总管。

Stopping short for a moment, Ling Xiao then remembered that he was already no longer the Steward Ling that served the Emperor.

他敛眸乖巧的坐到了皇帝的旁边,皇帝这才动手举起了碗筷。

He hid his thoughts and obediently sat by the Emperor, who then started to raise his bowl and chopsticks.

凌萧惊愕,皇帝难道……是在等他用餐?

Ling Xiao was stunned, the Emperor… was waiting for him to eat with him?

凌萧眨巴着双眼,舔了舔唇角,甩掉自己多余的想法,手忙脚乱的跟着皇帝拿起了碗筷。

He blinked his eyes, licked his lips and threw away those thoughts, flusteredly following the Emperor’s action and took his own bowl and chopsticks.

心中却忐忑万分。

But his heart was greatly nervous.

凌萧那一副坐立不安的样子,尽数落在皇帝的眼中,皇帝斜眼轻瞥着,淡然的问道:“不习惯?”

Ling Xiao’s restless appearance was observed by the Emperor and he glanced at him, calmly asking, “Not used to?”

凌萧闻言一顿,轻轻的放下了碗筷,老实的点了点头。

Ling Xiao stopped, lightly placed down his bowl and chopsticks and honestly nodded his head.

他不仅是第一次和皇帝这般用餐,也是来到这个世界后,第一次有人等他一起用餐,这让凌萧感受到了许久未曾有的温暖。

This was not only the first time for him to eat with the Emperor, this was also the first time since someone had waited for him to eat together since he came to this world. It cause a warmth that he hadn’t felt in a long time to appear in him.

自从来到这个世界,上辈子的他帮着莫绮机关算尽,这辈子,为了复仇,他也一步步走得如履浮冰。

Ever since he came to this world, in his past life he helped Mo Qi calculate and plan, while in this life, he was avenging himself. The whole way through was like walking on ice floe.

一直以来都是他一个人,上辈子为了莫绮是一个人,这辈子复仇也是一个人,他都快要忘了,和人在一起吃饭,那种平淡而温馨的感觉了。

In the past, he was always by himself. In the past when he helped Mo Qi, he was by himself, in this life where he tried to avenge himself he was by himself. He had almost forgot how ordinary and comforting it felt to eat with someone else.

凌萧突然感觉眼中有些酸涩,他不由低了低头,挡住了自己的神情,似是不希望皇帝注意一般,他缓了缓声音,平静而轻柔的应道:“凌萧……还是第一次这样跟皇上您一起用餐。”

Ling Xiao suddenly felt his eyes sour a bit, he lowered his head to hide his look. He didn’t want the Emperor to see it. He slowly said in a undisturbed and soft voice, “This is the first time Ling Xiao… ate with Your Majesty like this.”

小太监面上的惶恐尽褪,面上是被关怀的动容,微蹙的眉目下,露出了一丝丝的感动,眼圈微红,眼中噙着泪,那晶莹的泪水,似乎下一秒就会崩堤而出,瞧着令人心软。

The fear on the little eunuch’s face was taken away, and what replaced it was an emotionally moved one from the care. Under his wrinkled face, his heart stirred and the rims of his eyes redden. Tears appeared in his eyes and that bright teardrop appear as if it was going to fall any moment, anyone who saw it would have their heart soften.

皇帝轻叹了口气,伸手给凌萧夹了一筷子菜,悠悠的道:“今后这样的机会多得是,你要尽早习惯。”

The Emperor gave a soft sigh and reached out to pick up some dishes with his chopsticks for Ling Xiao. He unhurriedly told him, “There would be plenty of chances for this hereafter, you have to quickly get used to it.”

皇帝的语气一如既往的霸道,凌萧听了,却突感亲切,他轻声笑道:“皇上日理万机,怎可能一直跟凌萧这般。”

The Emperor’s tone was a overbearing as always, but when Ling Xiao heard it, he felt that it was very familiar and he quietly laughed, “Your Majesty has to deal with a lot of governmental work all the time, how can you always accompany Ling Xiao like this.”

凌萧知道这般说来,已是是在间接要求皇帝的行为了,这是皇帝一直以来所厌恶的,凌萧这样说,也是想试探试探,皇帝对自己的容忍底线究竟在哪。

Ling Xiao knew that the way he spoke was indirectly asking about the Emperor’s plans. This was something he always hated to be asked about, but Ling Xiao did it to feel him out a little. Just how far was the Emperor’s bottom line for putting up with him.

他做了这么多错事,皇帝都能容忍。

He had done so many wrong things, yet the Emperor could tolerate it.

那么自己的语言中的放肆,是不是也能被特殊对待?

Then the impudent way he was speaking, would it also be treated as fine?

皇帝轻瞥了凌萧一眼,那一眼透彻万分,似乎望进了凌萧的心底,洞悉了凌萧的一切想法,凌萧一惊,刚想起身请罪,皇帝淡然的道:“你若是希望,回到牧国以后,便一直与朕用餐罢。”

The Emperor gave Ling Xiao a glance from the side, it was very incisive and felt as if it could see through the bottom of Ling Xiao’s heart and understand everything he was thinking. Startled, Ling Xiao was just about to get up and beg for forgiveness when the Emperor calmly answered, “If you wish for it, then after we return to Mu Country, We will always eat together.”

凌萧一愣,沉默的敛下了眸。

Ling Xiao was silenced by the unexpected answer and looked down.

皇帝真能容忍自己……

The Emperor could really tolerate him…

既然如此能容忍……

Since he could tolerate him…

凌萧想了想,壮着胆子问道:“皇上,您为何放过凌萧呢?”

Ling Xiao thought a bit then gather his courage and asked, “Your Majesty, why do you let off Ling Xiao?”

这是凌萧一直以来所困惑的,皇帝不是一个喜爱某人就能一直容忍这个人的君王。

This was something that had always perplexed him, the Emperor was not a sovereign king that would always tolerate someone just because he was fond of them.

他有着自己的底线与原则,自己之前的所做作为,明显触碰到了皇帝的底线,但皇帝还是放过了自己。

He had his own bottom line and principle. The things he had done before had clearly touched his bottom line, but the Emperor still let him go.

凌萧很是困惑。

Ling Xiao was truly perplexed.

皇帝闻言,手下一顿,目光便移向了凌萧。

The Emperor heard and his hands stopped, his sight moving to Ling Xiao.

凌萧对视皇帝通彻的眸子,顶着皇帝所散发出的威严,咬牙坦然面对。

Facing the Emperor’s eyes that knew everything and subjected to the imposingness from him, he clenched his teeth and calmly confronted it.

凌萧的神情坚决,尽是想要知道结果的决心,那眉目间却透着丝丝的哀求,似是在恳求皇帝将一切告知于他。

His firm appearance, full of determination to know why, yet holding traces of plea seemed to plead with the Emperor to tell him everything.

皇帝见此,在心里叹了口气,悠悠的道:“你在朕心里是特别的。”

The Emperor sighed once in his heart at the sight, then finally answered, “You are special in Our heart.”

皇帝说的坦然,凌萧心头一跳,面色一烫,慌不及神的移开目光,小声的道:“皇上,可是凌萧如此……欺瞒您……”

Though the Emperor said it calmly, Ling Xiao’s heart jumped and his face went hot. He moved his gaze away in panic and said in a soft voice, “Your Majesty, but Ling Xiao had… lied to you…”

“欺瞒?”皇帝放下了碗筷,似是在不屑,转头睥睨着望着凌萧道:“你认为你欺瞒得住朕?”

“Lied?” The Emperor placed down his bowl and chopsticks, feeling it was beneath his dignity as he turned his head and disdainfully looked at Ling Xiao, “Did you think you could lie Us?”

说到这,皇帝微微一顿,似是想到什么似的,神情有些不自然,目光便移到了凌萧的下身道:“……你还真有一事瞒住了朕。”

Speaking to this point, the Emperor paused and recalled something, his appearance turned a bit unnatural as his sight moved to the lower body of Ling Xiao, “…There really was one thing you hid from Us.”

“……”凌萧被皇帝炽热的目光,望的身子一僵,腿本能的缩了起来。

“……” Ling Xiao went rigid from the Emperor’s red-hot sight on his body and instinctively withdew his legs.

皇帝见状,轻移开了目光道:“但那朕并不厌恶。”

The Emperor moved his eyes away at his action, “But We do not hate it.”

凌萧心头一颤,低下了头。

Ling Xiao’s heart trembled and he lowered his head.

心中也甚是了然了,因为皇帝知道所有,事情都掌握在皇帝的手中,所以自己的欺瞒对于皇帝而言,可以原谅,因为不厌恶自己那物,加上对自己的心喜,所以也可以选择原谅。

He finally understood, because the Emperor knew everything, all matters were in the Emperor’s grasp. So even though he lied to him before, and because he was not objected against his little matter, he could excuse it. Plus he was fond of him, so he could choose to excuse it.

皇帝对自己的底线果然要低许多,那既然这样,凌萧眼中狡黠一闪,咬了咬牙,再次壮着胆子开口道:“皇上,可以饶过傅禹君吗?”

The Emperor’s bottom line was really a lot lower for him, since it was like this, a trace of slyness flitted in his eyes. He clenched his teeth and once more summoned his courage to ask, “Your Majesty, can you pardon Fu Yujun?”
