第60章 再见兰蔚

Chapter 60: Goodbye, Lan Wei

“若是他能诚服,让邵国成为牧国的属国,朕可以饶他。”皇帝几乎连犹豫都没有便答应了凌萧。

“If he could be convinced and allow Shao Country to become Mu Country’s vassal, then I could spare him.” The Emperor had agreed to Ling Xiao without any hesitation.

凌萧一愣,有些惊愕的看着皇帝。

Ling Xiao stared blankly at the Emperor, a bit stunned.

皇帝却已然起身,似是不想再讨论的此事一般,他走到了书桌边执笔,批起了公文,剩下凌萧在饭桌边。

But the Emperor had already stood up, he did not want to discuss this matter again. He walked to his table and picked up his brush, starting to go through his documents, leaving Ling Xiao at the dining table.

凌萧知道皇帝的意思,也不敢再开口,只是食不知味的吃了几口饭,便叫人将饭菜撤了下去,自己走到了皇帝的身边。

Ling Xiao understood what the Emperor meant and did not dare to speak anymore. He merely ate a few more bites without tasting the food then called out for someone to clean up and walked to the Emperor’s side.

皇帝对他置若不理,专注的看着桌面上的公文。

The Emperor refused to take notice of him and concentrated on the documents on the table.

凌萧心中有些忐忑,虽然皇帝没有明显表现出不高兴,但是,这般不想和自己谈及此事,已是皇帝不悦的前兆。

Ling Xiao was a bit nervous at heart, although the Emperor did not show he was unhappy, the fact that he did not want to talk about it was already a sign that he was unhappy.

凌萧不敢硬来,讨好一般,他放轻脚步走到皇帝的身后,伸手轻轻按压着皇帝的肩膀。

Ling Xiao did not dare to force it, so he would try to curry favor instead. He quietly walked behind the Emperor and lightly pressed his shoulders.

皇帝微微一顿,随即默认了凌萧的动作,将笔放下,舒服的靠在了椅背上,方便凌萧的动作。

The Emperor paused then tacitly agreed to Ling Xiao’s actions. He play down his brush and leaned comfortably against the chair, allowing Ling Xiao easier access to work.

凌萧小心的伺候着,手下用的是皇帝心喜的按摩手法与力度,皇帝舒服的舒了口气,缓缓闭上了眼。

Ling Xiao carefully served him. He used the Emperor’s preferred massage technique and strength, and the other sighed in comfort, slowly closing his eyes.

“你走之后,宫里头还真无人将朕伺候的舒服。”皇帝似是叹息般说了一声。

“After you left, there really was no one who can serve Us as well as you.” The Emperor seem to sigh as he said so.

凌萧闻言,莫名的有些心喜,他稳了稳心神,轻声道:“皇上喜欢就好。”

Ling Xiao felt a bit pleased, he steadied his mind and quietly said, “As long as Your Majesty likes it.”

“喜欢,朕甚是喜欢。”皇帝说着,伸手将凌萧拉进怀里,让凌萧坐在他的大腿上,目光轻柔的盯着凌萧道:“朕喜欢你的上上下下,唯独一点。”

“Like it, We like it a lot.” The Emperor spoke and reached out to pull him into his embrace, having him sit on his thigh as his gentle gaze stared at him, “We like you from top to bottom, the only one for Us.”

皇帝的语气突然变得凌厉,他伸手捏住了凌萧的下巴,强硬得控制凌萧凑近自己道:“你要知道谁才是你的男人,明白吗?”

The Emperor’s tone suddenly became strong and he grasped Ling Xiao’s chin, unyieldingly making Ling Xiao lean closer to him, “You have to know who is your man, understood?”

皇帝眯眼盯着凌萧,眼中散发出骇人的威严,压的凌萧快喘不过气来,凌萧连忙慌不择乱的点头。

With his narrowed eyes staring at Ling Xiao, a terrifying and dignified aura emitted from his eyes, pressuring Ling Xiao to the point he was unable to breath. In a panic, he nodded his head.

皇帝见状,微微收敛了气势,放开了凌萧。

The Emperor slightly curbed his aura at the sight and let go of Ling Xiao.

凌萧连忙从皇帝怀里起身,跪在皇帝面前。

Ling Xiao hurriedly got out of the Emperor’s embrace and knelt in front of him.

皇帝起身道:“起来吧,朕不喜欢你总是跪着,今后在朕的面前,不必如此。”

The Emperor stood up, “Stand up, We do not like you always kneeling. From hereafter, you don’t need to be like this in front of Us.”

说着,皇帝越过凌萧往外走去,走到门口,又似是想到什么一般,他停下了脚步,背对着凌萧道:“凌萧,你是个聪明人,不要再试图触碰朕的底线。”

With that spoken, the Emperor passed by Ling Xiao and headed out, but paused at the entrance. He seemed to have remembered something as he stopped and said to Ling Xiao with his back to him, “Ling Xiao, you are an intelligent man, don’t try to touch my bottom line again.”

似乎怕这话对凌萧的威胁太大,皇帝顿了顿,又道:“只要你乖乖的,朕会让你成为这世界最幸福的人。”

As if he was afraid the threat of those words weren’t enough, the Emperor paused and continued, “As long as you’re obedient, We can make you the happiest man in the world.”

说完,他头也不回的离开。

With those words, he left without even looking back.

凌萧松了口气,捂着自己砰然跳动的心脏,从地上起身,望着皇帝离去的背影,低头深思。

Ling Xiao relaxed a breath and held his jumping heart, getting up from the ground. He watched the Emperor’s departing figure and lowered his head, pondering.

皇帝最后那些话,大概就是对自己如今的底线了。

The Emperor’s last words were probably what his bottom lines were for him nowadays.

果真低了许多啊,凌萧感慨。

It really did lower a lot. Ling Xiao sighed ruefully.

“公子。”门口突然传来一声叫唤。

“Young Master.” A call for him suddenly came from the entrance.

凌萧抬头,发现是一劲装侍女守在门口,凌萧扬眉。

Ling Xiao raised his head to find a sturdily dressed maid waiting at the door, he raised an eyebrow.

侍女走了进来,在凌萧面前行了一礼道:“公子,皇上要我带您去囚牢探望邵国二皇子,您去吗?”

A maid walked in and saluted to him, “Young Master, Your Majesty had me lead you to where the prisoner prison is to visit Shao Country’s Second Prince. Would you like to go?”

凌萧讶然,皇帝准许自己去探望傅禹君?还让侍女带自己去?

He was astounded. The Emperor allowed him to go visit Fu Yujun? And even have the maid take him there?

凌萧狐疑的望着侍女,不可置信般问道:“皇上交代你带我看傅禹君?”

Ling Xiao looked at the maid suspiciously, asking in a disbelieving way, “The Emperor had you lead me to where Fu Yujun is?”

侍女微笑着点头,见凌萧还是一脸的不相信,侍女敛眸说道:“这不正是公子您希望的吗?”

The maid smiled and nodded, but restrained herself from rolling her eyes when she saw that Ling Xiao still did not look convinced, “Was it not what you wished for Young Master?”

凌萧沉默,他倒也没真希望去探望傅禹君,只是希望傅禹君能活着,毕竟傅禹君与自己有些交情,而且,那人有才华,死了也可惜了。

Ling Xiao went silent, he did not really want to go visit Fu Yujun either. He just wished Fu Yujun could live, after all, he had some friendship with him. Plus, that man was also talented, it would be a pity to die.

现下皇帝既然同意了自己去探望傅禹君,他去和傅禹君说两句话也好。

Since the Emperor had agreed to him visiting Fu Yujun, then he should go and speak a few words with him.

思及此,凌萧抿了抿唇,挥手道:“前面带路吧。”

Thinking of those things, Ling Xiao pursed his lips and waved his hand, “Lead the way.”

“是。”

“Yes.”

侍女行礼转身走在了凌萧的前头,凌萧紧跟其后。

The maid saluted, turned and walked ahead of Ling Xiao with him following.

傅禹君被关在了邵国的地牢,而凌萧所在的是邵国京都的望春楼,要去到地牢,必须坐马车前去。

Fu Yujun was held in Shao Country’s prison, and the place Ling Xiao was at was Shao Country’s Hopeful Spring Tavern. If he wanted to go to the prison, he had to take a carriage there.

而侍女早就将马车准备在了门口,只待凌萧出门。

And the maid had already prepared the carriage in front of the entrance, waiting for Ling Xiao to go out.

凌萧出门,一眼注意的不是那侍女为他准备的,那皇帝惯坐的华丽马车,而是望春楼门口跪着一个人,一个熟悉得不能再熟悉的人——红叶。

Ling Xiao walked out, and what he noticed wasn’t what the maid prepared for him, the Emperor’s oftenly used gorgeous carriage, but the person kneeling at the entrance. It was someone he couldn’t be more familiar with– Hong Ye.

红叶孤零零得跪在望春楼前,面上没有一丝血色,神情尽是绝望与迷茫,身子摇摇欲坠,显然是体力不支。

Hong Ye lonelily knelt in front of Hopeful Spring Tavern, her face without a trace of color. Her looks of utter despair and loss, and her tottering body showed she clearly didn’t have the physical ability to continue to endure.

凌萧皱眉看着,面带疑惑,他最后是被红叶抓回皇帝身边的,按理说她是功臣,然而,此时,却似犯了错一般跪在地上。

Ling Xiao frown at the sight, wearing confusion on his face. He was grabbed by Hong Ye and taken to the Emperor in the end, she should have done an outstanding service, yet not, she was kneeling like she had done wrong.

这着实让凌萧不解。

Ling Xiao really didn’t understand.

凌萧想要上前询问,一旁的侍女见状,却突而闪身挡在了凌萧的面前,恭敬的朝他行礼道:“公子,再不去地牢,天就要暗了,请上马车吧。”

Ling Xiao wanted to walk closer and ask, but the maid by the side saw and got between them, respectfully saluting to him and saying, “Young Master, if you don’t go to the prison now, it will be dark soon. Please get on the carriage.”

“不急。”凌萧望了望天色,摇了摇头说完,便想要越过侍女,朝红叶走去。

“No rush.” Ling Xiao looked up at the sky then shook his head, wanting to walk pass the maid toward Hong Ye.

侍女见状,错开一步,再一次挡在了凌萧的面前,行礼道:“公子,请上马车。”

The maid saw and blocked him again, saluting, “Young Master, please get on the carriage.”

侍女的声音带了丝强硬,凌萧一愣,望向侍女,这才发现这女子面貌英气十足,眉目间满满都是不容拒绝的冷意。

The maid’s voice carried a trace of firmness, surprising Ling Xiao. Ling Xiao looked at her and noticed that this woman’s appearance had a lot of heroic spirit. Her face carried a coldness that he cannot refuse.

凌萧扬眉,心中了然,知道这是皇帝下了命令,不许自己接近红叶,也明白再僵持下去没有什么作用,便转身乖巧的上了马车。

Ling Xiao rose an eyebrow and understood that this was an order by the Emperor, to not allow him near Hong Ye. He continued on as if nothing was happening and obediently climbed onto the carriage.

侍女微微一愣,舒出了一口气,回头看了苍白着面色的红叶一眼,摇了摇头,转身跟着凌萧上了马车。

The maid stared blankly and relaxed a breath. She looked back at Hong Ye’s white complexion, shook her head and followed Ling Xiao onto the carriage.

侍女的这一动作并没有逃过凌萧的眼睛,凌萧眼瞧着,猜测这侍女与红叶是熟悉之人,心下便有了主意。

The maid’s movement did not escape Ling Xiao’s eyes. Ling Xiao observed her and guessed that this maid was familiar with Hong Ye and he laid a plan in his mind.

他待侍女上了马车,便凑近她套近乎的道:“瞧着你的打扮,不似普通的侍女啊?”

He brought the maid with him to the carriage and wormed his way in front of her acting friendly, “Looking at your dress, you don’t look like a normal maid?”

侍女微微一顿,低头回道:“公子,属下是主子的暗卫。”

The maid paused for a moment then answered with her head lowered, “Young Master, this subordinate is Master’s secret guard.”

“暗卫?”凌萧惊奇,这皇帝上辈子可没有听说有什么暗卫。

“Secret guard?” Ling Xiao never heard about the Emperor having secret guards in his past lifetime so he was amazed.

他似是盯着什么稀奇物事一般盯着侍女,侍女被他盯得浑身不自在,不由微微挪动了一下道:“公子,为何这样看属下?”

He stared at the maid like he was staring at something rare. The maid felt uneasy all over from all the staring and shifted a bit, “Young Master, why are you looking at this subordinate like that?”

“不,只是不曾想,暗卫也有女的。”凌萧胡乱扯了一个借口。

“No, I just never thought there would be female secret guards too.” Ling Xiao randomly pulled out an excuse.

侍女闻言,显得有些不高兴的应道:“主子曾说,女人与男人无异,男子能做到的,女子也能。”

The maid appeared a bit unhappy as she heard it and replied, “Master once said that men and women were the same, what a man can do, a woman can do as well.”

凌萧哑然,这个侍女误会自己轻视女性了,他忙解释道:“我不是这个意思,我的意思是……”

Ling Xiao was speechless, this maid misunderstood that he scorn women, he hurried explained, “I don’t mean that, I mean…”

“好了,公子,您不必跟属下解释,您是主子的人,那便也是属下的主子,您有什么问题直接问吧。”

“Alright, Young Master, you do not need to explain to this subordinate. You are Master’s man and therefore this subordinate’s Master as well. If you have questions please ask.”

“……”

“……”

不愧是皇帝的人,这洞察力够敏锐,个性也够爽快的。

As expected of one of the Emperor’s people, her insight was really keen and her individuality is refreshing enough.

凌萧在心里暗暗赞同,也不再绕弯子,直白的问道:“红叶也是暗卫吗?”

Ling Xiao secretly approved in his heart and stopped beating around the bush, frankly asking, “Is Hong Ye a secret guard too?”

“红叶?”侍女微微一顿,应道:“她……是暗卫,但与属下不同。”

“Hong Ye?” The maid paused and answered, “She… is a secret guard, different from this subordinate.”

凌萧诧异,接着问道:“如何不同?”

Ling Xiao was flabbergasted and continued to ask, “How is it different?”

侍女闻言,有些为难的道“公子,这话不如去问主子?”

The maid heard and said a bit awkwardly, “Young Master, isn’t it better to ask Master about that?”

“……”凌萧更加诧异了,盯着侍女探究的道:“你不能说?”

“……” Ling Xiao was even more flabbergasted, staring at the maid questioningly, “You can’t say?”

侍女朝凌萧微微低头行礼道:“望公子恕罪。”

The maid lowered her head at Ling Xiao and saluted, “Please forgive this one Young Master.”

凌萧闻言,微微不满的抿了抿唇,换了一个角度探究道:“那你与红叶什么关系?很熟悉吗?”

Ling Xiao pursed his lips unhappily at the answer and asked using another angle, “What kind of relationship do you have with Hong Ye? Are you two familiar with each other?”

侍女摇头:“只是共同出过几次任务。”

The maid shook her head, “We only met a few times when we went out on the same mission.”

“属下是负责暗处的事宜的,红叶是主子安插在邵国,打探消息的,与她并不是很熟悉。”

“This subordinate is in charged of secret matters, Hong Ye was placed by Master in Shao Country to obtain information. We are not very familiar with each other.”

“这样。”凌萧扬眉,那这侍女为何刚刚一脸惋惜的盯着红叶?

“So it’s like that.” Ling Xiao raised an eyebrow. Then why was this maid staring at Hong Ye with a face of regret just now?

思及此,凌萧再次问道:“那红叶此次为何跪在地上。”

Pondering on that, Ling Xiao asked another question, “Then why is Hong Ye kneeling this time?”

侍女一愣,很是惊讶的问道:“公子您不知道?”

The maid was at loss and asked in surprised, “Young Master, you don’t know?”

“……”凌萧沉默,他该知道吗?

“……” Ling Xiao went silent, was he supposed to know?

侍女微微失笑出声,随即意识到自己的失态一般,她瞥头向一边答道:“红叶她违抗了主子的命令。”

The maid couldn’t help but laugh in spite of herself. Noticing immediately she was forgetting her manners, she turned her head to the side and replied, “Hong Ye disobeyed Master’s order.”

“违抗?”凌萧疑惑。

“Disobeyed?” Ling Xiao was puzzled.

侍女解释道:“主子给红叶下的命令是在开战前带回公子。”

The maid explained, “Master had gave Hong Ye the order to bring back Young Master before the war.”

似是怕凌萧有所误会,侍女急忙说道:“这也为了保护公子,避免开战后,刀剑无眼,伤了公子。这也是主子要红叶带回您的目的,但是……”

As if she was afraid of Ling Xiao misunderstanding her, she hastily added, “This is in order to protect Young Master. When war starts, you get attacked by accident and become injured. This was the reason why Master wanted Hong Ye to bring you back first, but…”

侍女顿了顿,微显严肃的道:“红叶并没有听从主子的命令,而是放任了公子,让公子几次陷入危机……可她估计没有猜到公子有这般才能,放任了公子,不仅没有让公子伤到自己,还让公子您成功……救……救了邵国皇子,令主子第一计划失败。”

The maid paused and very seriously said, “Hong Ye did not obey Master’s order and instead, letting Young Master do as you pleased, causing Young Master to fall into crisis several times… But she probably didn’t know Young Master had such talent. Not only did letting Young Master do as you please not injure yourself, it also allowed Young Master to succeed…. In sa… saving Shao Country’s Prince. So Master’s first plan failed.”

“等……”凌萧皱眉:“你说放任?”

“Wait…” Ling Xiao frowned, “You said ignored?”

侍女应道:“……红叶的穴道其实早就解开了,那绳索也威胁不到她,她若愿意,早就可以带回公子。”

The maid replied, “…Hong Ye had actually undone her acupoint a long time ago. And that rope does not threaten her, if she so wished, she could had long brought back Young Master.”

侍女这般说道,凌萧听闻愕然瞪大了眼。

The maid stated in this way, causing Ling Xiao’s eyes to widen in shock.

“也就是她是故意让我搅和进军队中的?就是为了让我受伤甚至是……死?”凌萧后知后觉的道。

“So she let me mix into the army on purpose? Just so I could get injured and even… die?” Ling Xiao asked, finally becoming aware.

侍女沉默,半响应道:“公子离红叶远些,她对您居心叵测,若是您没有那般聪明才智,现在的您估计就是那众多尸体当中的一具了。”

The maid went silent, thinking for a while before answering, “Young Master, it’s best to keep some distance from Hong Ye. She is harboring unknown motives towards you, if you weren’t so intelligent, you would had probably been one of those dead bodies.”

凌萧狠狠的打了一个寒颤。

Ling Xiao was hit by a strong chill.

心中有些不信,在傅禹君身边的时候,这红叶对自己还是蛮不错的。

He had some disbelief in his heart. This Hong Ye was actually pretty good to him when he was by Fu Yujun.

很多时候,她对自己的担忧都很真诚。

Often times, she would be very sincere about his worries.

她为何要让自己死掉?自己跟她无冤无仇的?

Why would she want him to die? He had no grief or hate with her?

凌萧正想再问一些话,马车突然停了下来,侍女似是知道凌萧的心思一般,逃似得跳下车,并朝凌萧行礼道:“公子,地牢到了。”

Ling Xiao had wanted some more when the carriage suddenly stopped. The maid seem to know his thoughts and escaped by getting off the carriage, she saluted to Ling Xiao, “Young Master, we’re at the prison.

凌萧无奈,只得下车。

Ling Xiao was helpless, he could only get off the carriage.

候在车下的,却不仅仅是侍女,还有一身蓝衣便装意气风发的少年——兰蔚。

Waiting behind the carriage was not only a maid, but also a young man dressed in casual blue clothing in high spirits–Lan Wei.
