第65章 大仇得报

Chapter 65: Hatred Reaped

凌萧稍稍惊奇,上一辈子,牧修甯对自己总是有种莫名的敌意,虽然温柔的性子让他并没有对自己做出什么不好的事情,但是他从不会拿正眼瞧自己。

Ling Xiao was somewhat amazed. In his past lifetime, Mu Xiuning always had some kind of indescribably enmity against him, although his gentle temper made it so that he didn’t do anything bad against him, he would never look at him in the eyes.

这辈子重生,竟然还能看到他这般平和的一面。

With this life, to think he would be able to see such a peaceful side of him.

凌萧轻笑,站在原地有礼而疏远叫唤了男子一声。

Ling Xiao lightly smiled and cried from afar to the man.

“皇叔。”

“Imperial Uncle.”

“皇叔?”牧修甯微显诧异,走到了凌萧的面前,上上下下的打量着他。

“Imperial Uncle?” My Xiuning was obviously astonished and walked in front of him, sizing him up.

被露骨的眼神注视着,凌萧有些不适,整个身子因此而僵硬了起来。

Being so blatantly stared at, Ling Xiao felt a bit unwell and his body went a bit stiff.

牧修甯见状,移开了目光,轻声道:“我怎会是你皇叔呢,这可不能乱叫呐。”

Mu Xiuning moved away his gaze when he saw his discomfort and quietly said, “How could I be your Imperial Uncle? You can’t randomly call people.”

凌萧闻言一顿,抬眼去看牧修甯,发觉他的面上隐隐带着不满,眉目间是不懂掩饰的试探……

Ling Xiao paused, raising his eyes to look at Mu Xiuning and became aware that he looked a bit unhappy. His face was completely open about checking him out…

凌萧一愣,心中了然。

Ling Xiao understood at that moment.

听闻,皇帝小时候曾被牧修甯带过一阵子,牧修甯自来就对皇帝多了一分亲情。

He heard that when the Emperor was young, he had been taken care of by Mu Xiuning for a while. And Mu Xiuning had been very affectionate toward the Emperor from the very beginning.

此时,这般来试探自己,在这辈子牧修甯没有与莫绮相交的当下,凌萧能想到的,只有皇帝。

Right now with how he was coming here to check him out, since Mu Xiuning had not met with Mo Qi yet, then the only thing Ling Xiao could think of was the Emperor.

牧修甯是为了皇帝,来找自己这个男妃的。

Mu Xiuning came to find him for the Emperor, to find him, this male consort.

他想知道,自己当这个男妃合不合格。

He himself knows that he does not meet the qualifications for a male consort.

凌萧在心底冷笑了一声,他合不合格牧修甯说了不算。

Ling Xiao coldly smiled in his heart. Whether he was qualified or not has nothing to do with Mu Xiuning.

思及此,凌萧刻意表达立场回道:“您是皇上的皇叔,自然也就是凌萧的皇叔。”

After those thoughts, Ling Xiao deliberately expressed his position by replying, “You are the Emperor’s Imperial Uncle, then naturally you are Ling Xiao’s Imperial Uncle.”

“皇上?”牧修甯有半刻的恍惚,继而带了丝责备的道:“皇上许久不曾叫我一声皇叔了,许是早已不拿我当了亲人。”

“The Emperor?” Mu Xiuning was out of it for a while, before he replied with a bit of reproach, “The Emperor had not called me Imperial Uncle in a long time. He had long stop regarding me as family.”

凌萧微微一愕,他虽然知道有个皇叔,但不管上一辈子还是这辈子,确实不曾听过皇帝叫过牧修甯为皇叔。

Ling Xiao was a bit startled. Although he knew that there was an Imperial Uncle, but regardless if it was his past lifetime or this lifetime, he really has never heard the Emperor call Mu Xiuning Imperial Uncle.

实际上,他连两人相见都很少见。

In fact, he rarely ever see the two meet.

传言,皇帝已经疏远了这位皇叔。

Rumors say that the Emperor had already drifted apart from this Imperial Uncle.

如今,见牧修甯此番模样,看来这传言是真的了。

Now that he has seen Mu Xiuning’s current expression, it looks like the rumors were true.

不过……听闻牧修甯用埋怨的语气说着皇帝,凌萧胸口火气还是不打一处来。

It’s just that… listening to Mu Xiuning’s complaining tone as he spoke of the Emperor, the anger within Ling Xiao still bursted out.

他一个没忍住,便对着牧修甯冲道:“皇上若是不认你,怎么还会留你活着,这牧国的皇室可就只剩下你和他了,其他人可都被皇上斩……”

He couldn’t bear it and clashed right with Mu Xiuning, “If the Emperor didn’t recognize his relationship with you, how could he still leave you alive? The only members of Mu Country’s royal family are you and him now, all the other people were beheaded by the Emperor…”

接触到牧修甯警告的目光,凌萧猛然回神,这才知道自己说了多么大逆不道的事情。

Meeting Mu Xiuning’s warning gaze, Ling Xiao suddenly realized just how disgraceful he was for speaking of that matter.

牧国皇室,原本有好几人,皇位,本轮不到皇帝来坐,皇帝是怎么坐上这个位置的,其中经历了什么,只有他自己知道。

The imperial family of Mu Country used to have many people. Originally, the title of Emperor hadn’t meant to be passed down yet, so for the Emperor to now have his position, just what had he experienced, would be something only he himself knows.

但是,明眼人都能清楚,这其中绝不是外人看起来的那般,皇室子弟相继死去,最后剩下现在的皇帝和皇叔,皇叔主动放弃帝位,就只能由他继任。

However, anyone with a discerning eye could see that this was not as it appears to outsiders. The imperial family’s children died in succession, and now only the Emperor and his Imperial Uncle remains. His Imperial Uncle renounced the throne of his own accord, so only the Emperor could succeed it.

这样的话,能骗得了百姓,却骗不了在宫里打滚过的人。

With how it happened, it was possible to deceive the common people but it was not possible to pass it over the palace people.

但,这俨然是宫里严禁的话题。

However, it was a subject that was strictly prohibited in the palace.

没有人会愿意在天子脚下去议论这个问题,为了保命,这样的话,根本连提都不能提及。

No one was willing to comment on this question under the Son of Heaven, in order to keep their lives, this kind of topic conversation simply cannot be mentioned at all.

可凌萧一个心直口快,竟然犯了忌讳。

But Ling Xiao was a straightforward person, he violated this taboo.

这要追究起来,完全可以给凌萧安一个污蔑圣上的罪名。

If he wants to keep questioning it, it is completely possible to ;lace a criminal charge on him that tarnished him as a minister.

是可以直接杀头的。

It is possible for him to be directly beheaded.

凌萧惊得一身冷汗,突然想到自己身上有免死令牌,又微微安心。

Ling Xiao’s whole body was filled with cold sweat in fright, but then thought of the death excuse command tablet and felt slightly relieved.

他强装镇定的去看牧修甯,发觉他正满含笑意的看着自己。

He forcefully acted calm and looked toward Mu Xiuning, then became aware that he was wearing a smile as he watched him.

凌萧嘴角抽了抽,便听得他道:“你这么怕,怎么说出那种话来的?”

Ling Xiao’s lips twitched as he heard him say, “With how scared you are, how were you able to say something like that?”

凌萧横了他一眼道:“皇叔埋怨着皇上,就不允许凌萧多嘴说了几句?”

Ling Xiao crossed a glance at him, “Imperial Uncle is complaining about the Emperor and yet won’t let Ling Xiao say a few words?”

“几句那你这几句可还真是多嘴了。”

“A fews words, then your few words are a bit too out of turn.”

牧修甯的语气,慵懒但没有什么敌意,凌萧微微安心。

Mu Xiuning’s tone was languid but had no enmity, so Ling Xiao felt more at ease.

面色也恢复了红润,牧修甯见此,又是一阵轻笑:“你这察言观色的功夫倒是很到家吶。”

His face return rosy and Mu Xiuning once again burst into light laughter at the scene, “Your ability to discern someone through body language is very excellent.”

这带着笑意的话,明明没有什么敌意,听在凌萧的耳中却显得很不舒服,凌萧没了和牧修甯周旋的心,对他的态度便轻慢了起来。

These words that hinted a smile obviously did not hold any enmity, yet when Ling Xiao held it, he felt a bit uneasy. Ling Xiao lost the desire to socialize with Mu Xiuning and his manner became more impolite.

“皇叔若无事,我就先行告辞了,皇上还等着我回去呢。”

“If Imperial Uncle has no other matters with me, then I will bid my farewell. The Emperor is still waiting for me to return.”

凌萧刻意提及皇帝,让牧修甯无法开口留住自己。

Ling Xiao deliberately mentioned the Emperor so Mu Xiuning could not ask him to stay.

这样的话相当于用皇帝去压牧修甯了,凌萧本以为牧修甯会生气,起码他该有些反应,然而,牧修甯却很平静,平静的令凌萧讶然,凌萧讶然间,一时间便忘记了抬脚。

It was the same as him using the Emperor to pressure Mu Xiuning. Ling Xiao had believed that he would get angry, or at the least, have some kind of reaction. However, Mu Xiuning was very peaceful, so peaceful Ling Xiao was too surprised. In his surprise, he forgot to leave.

牧修甯见状,主动给凌萧让了一条路出来,甚至还弯腰摆出了一个“请”的姿势。

Mu Xiuning took the initiative to give Ling Xiao a way out when he saw that, he even bent his waist to assume a “please” posture.

这让凌萧瞬间难堪了起来,明明要试探自己的是牧修甯,现在这般好似自己不想走了一样。

Now Ling Xiao was a bit embarrassed, he was obviously sounding him out, yet now it looked like he didn’t want to leave.

凌萧黑脸,狠狠的甩了衣袖,高傲的扬起了头,举步离去。

With a black face, Ling Xiao threw his sleeve harshly and arrogantly raised his head, walking forward.

牧修甯失笑,笑声不一小心传了出来,传到了凌萧的耳中,让凌萧面上升起了一阵灼热。

Mu Xiuning laughed in spite of himself, he wasn’t careful with his laughter so it passed into Ling Xiao’s ears, making his entire face burn.

凌萧再也不想在这里呆下去了,他小跑了两步,消失在了拐角。

Ling Xiao didn’t want to stay here any longer, he jogged a bit, disappearing at the corner.

牧修甯望着凌萧离去的方向,再次慵懒的靠在了墙壁上,悠悠的叹了口气。

Mu Xiuning looked in the direction Ling Xiao left in and once again, lazily leaned against the wall, before finally sighing.

“看来,玄儿找了个好的。”

“Looks like, Xuan’er found a good one.”

说完,他略带沧桑的抬头看了看天空。

With those words spoken, the atmosphere around him changed and he raised his head to look at the sky.

“如此一来,我也就放心了……”

“Like this, I won’t have to worry anymore…”

他自语般说着,带着感慨,沧桑的令闻者心酸。

The words he spoke to himself carried sorrow, such a change caused those to hear him feel sad.

告别牧修甯,凌萧直奔回宫。

Bidding his farewell to Mu Xiuning, Ling Xiao went back to the palace.

一踏进房内,才发现,皇帝竟然比他早一步歇在了房里。

The moment he walked into the room, he noticed that the Emperor had somehow arrived even early than him.

而他的身前正跪着一脸苍白的小李子。

And in front of his was a pale-faced, kneeling Xiao Lizi.

看皇帝的面色,和小李子的彷徨,凌萧大概猜的出,小李子将什么都说了。

Looking at the Emperor’s complexion and Xiao Lizi’s turmoil, Ling Xiao could roughly guess that Xiao Lizi told him everything.

凌萧撇了撇嘴,走到了皇帝的面前,对小李子道:“下去。”

Ling Xiao curled his lips and walked in front of the Emperor, saying to Xiao Lizi, “Withdraw.”

小李子微微迟疑了一下,抬头看了看皇帝,皇帝对他使了个眼色,小李子如蒙大赦,连忙退了出去。

Xiao Lizi hesitated for a moment and raised his head to look at the Emperor. The Emperor signaled to him with his eyes, and as if he was given amnesty, Xiao Lizi immediately went out.

凌萧待小李子离去,一屁股坐在了皇帝的旁边,皇帝微微诧异的挑眉。

Ling Xiao waited for Xiao Lizi to leave before sitting his bottom right beside the Emperor. The Emperor was a bit astonished.

凌萧没好气的说道:“皇上不是答应了我,今后有事情问我的吗?为何又要听小李子的?”

Ling Xiao said a bit unhappily, “Your Majesty, didn’t you promise me, if you have something you want to ask then just ask me? Why did you listen to Xiao Lizi again?”

皇帝掀开眼皮斜瞥着凌萧道:“朕何曾答应过你?”

The Emperor raised an eyelid at Ling Xiao and glanced over, “Just when had We promised you?”

“……”凌萧被噎了一下,不满道:“上次您……”

“……” Ling Xiao choked a bit then resentfully said, “Last time you…”

“上次朕只是问你罢了。”皇帝打断了凌萧。

“Last time We were just asking you.” The Emperor interrupted him.

“呃……”凌萧哑口无言,不由面带不满。

“Eh…” Ling Xiao was left speechless and he wore his dissatisfaction on his face.

皇帝见状,伸手捏住了凌萧的下巴,安慰一般,在他鼻尖印上了一吻。

Seeing that dissatisfaction, the Emperor grasp his chin, and then like he was comforting him, left a kiss on his nose.

鼻尖一阵湿热,带了点儿痒,凌萧耸了耸鼻头。

The warmth on his nose felt a bit moist and itchy, so Ling Xiao wrinkled his nose a bit.

此番动作,在皇帝看来,憨厚非常,皇帝宛如受到蛊惑一般,缓缓凑近了凌萧。

This movement was very endearing in the Emperor’s point of view, so it was like he had been bewitched and he slowly approached Ling Xiao.

凌萧一愣,望着皇帝近在咫尺的容颜心跳如雷,脑子倏时一片空白,连拒绝都不知如何拒绝,就被皇帝压在了床上。

Ling Xiao paused and looked at Emperor that was almost within reach, his heart beated like thunder and his mind suddenly went completely blank. Even refusing he didn’t know how to anymore and was pressed down onto the bed by the Emperor.

“皇……皇上……”凌萧结巴。

“Your…Your Majesty…” Ling Xiao stuttered out.

皇帝伸手取下了凌萧的头冠,抽掉了凌萧的腰带。

The Emperor took off Ling Xiao’s headdress and pulled off Ling Xiao’s belt.

将凌萧的衣物慢慢的剥落,让凌萧一点点呈现在自己的眼前。

He slowly peeled off Ling Xiao’s clothing so he would slowly reveal himself fully in front of him.

皇帝的目光,带了侵占,扫过凌萧的肌肤,让凌萧每一寸肌肤都感受得到那灼热的视线,那足以让凌萧羞得无地自容。

The Emperor’s gaze carried a bit of possession, sweeping past Ling Xiao’s skin, making any part that he laid eyes on feel hot by the gaze. That was enough to make Ling Xiao completely shy.

便不由的挣扎藏捏了起来。

He couldn’t help but start to struggle a little.

皇帝眯眼,压着凌萧乱动的手脚,嗓音带着性感的暗哑道:“都这么久了,还不习惯吗?”

The Emperor narrowed his eyes and pressed down on Ling Xiao’s moving hands and feet, his voice sexy as he huskily said, “It’s been so long, but you’re still not used to it?”

凌萧一顿,面上有些僵硬,这样的事,无论多少次,都不可能习惯吧。

Ling Xiao stopped, his face a bit stiff. Something like this, no matter how many times he experienced it, it was impossible to get used to.

况且,这是第一次自己在清醒状态和皇帝亲热,他可是做了自己不少的思想工作。

Moreover, this was the first time he was being affectionate with the Emperor clear-headed. He had thought a lot about himself.

就在凌萧分神间,皇帝已经欺身下来。

While Ling Xiao let his attention be divided, the Emperor was already starting to take advantage of the chance.

鼻息喷在了凌萧的面上,带来一阵灼热,凌萧猛然回神,皇帝已然擒住了凌萧的嘴。

His breath puffed on his face, leaving some heat and Ling Xiao suddenly came back to his senses. But the Emperor had already captured his mouth by then.

嘴唇开合间,唇舌纠缠,缠绵之余,让两人都染上了对方的味道,带着另样的满足。

Between the gaps of their lips, their tongues tangled and touched, letting the two taste each other and carried some satisfaction.

皇帝不知何时,松开了凌萧的唇,顺着他的脖颈,一路往下。

He didn’t know when but the Emperor released Ling Xiao’s lips and followed down his neck, continuing down.

凌萧粗重的喘息着,神智有些不清,全身都透着要命的爽利。

Ling Xiao heavily gasped for breath, his mind a bit hazy and his whole body filled with pleasure.

嘴唇被吻的酥麻,灼热的气息呼出来,会让自己的唇有些疼。

His lips were a bit numb from the kiss and hot air came from his mouth, causing his lips to feel a bit painful.

凌萧心里隐隐的想,他的嘴唇肯定是肿了。

Ling Xiao faintly thought in his heart, his lips were definitely swollen.

身上到处被皇帝点着火,那处宛如被打了兴奋剂一般,还未被触碰,便已经起立。

His body was lit everywhere by the Emperor, and as if that place was on stimulants, it was already standing despite not being touched.

透露着糜靡。

Leaking out something milky white.

皇帝的技术并不算特别的好,他的动作不像他的人喜欢拐弯抹角,而是带着霸道的直接。

The Emperor’s technique wasn’t really especially good, his actions did not beat around the bush like his character, rather, it was very direct.

这样的动作,让凌萧有被侵犯的错觉,也让身为男子的他心里一度不是特别能接受。

His actions gave Ling Xiao a misconception of being assaulted, causing him, a male to feel it was hard to accept for a long time.

但是,他的身体就像是催化剂,一被皇帝触碰,就软成了一滩春水,枉是心里不情愿,身体却还是做出了最诚实的反应。

However, his was like a catalyst, once the Emperor touched him, he would become soft like spring water. Even if he was unwilling in his heart, his body would still honestly react.

爽利的只会颤抖。

So pleasurable he could only tremble.

理智也在欲望中浮浮沉沉,直至最后消散。

His rationality was also floating in his desire, before finally dissipating.

“啊……”一声高亢的呻吟,凌萧也分不清这是第几次被皇帝弄到发出宛如女子一般叫声了。

“Ah…” A resounding moan came from, Ling Xiao was already unclear just how many times the Emperor had caused him to issue this type of sound like that of a women’s.

他只知道,身体在皇帝的身下,体会到了一次又一次前所未有的爽利。

He only knew that his body experienced unprecedented pleasure again and again under the Emperor’s body.

……

清晨,凌萧醒来,已然日晒三更了。

The next day when Ling Xiao woke it was already one.

旁边早已空了,皇帝去早朝了。

His side was long emptied, the Emperor had left early to go to court.

凌萧伸着懒腰起床。

Ling Xiao stretched lazily and got out of bed.

皇帝这几次动自己都很小心,而自己的愈合能力一直在上升,几乎不会有伤到的可能。

The Emperor was really careful these time while touching him, and his healing ability was constantly growing, so there was hardly a chance he would get injured.

而且,自己全身都清爽非常,看来,皇帝帮自己清洗过了。

Furthermore, his entire body felt refreshed. It looks like the Emperor had washed him already.

凌萧好心情的从床上起来,任由旁边守着的侍女给他换上衣物,服侍他洗漱。

Ling Xiao stood up from the bed in a good mood and had the maid on watch by the side to give him a change of clothes and attend him to wash his face and rinse his mouth.

留在他身边照顾的都是新面孔,凌萧也不在意。

The ones left by him to take care of him were all new faces, but Ling Xiao did not mind.

越是知道皇帝的权威与能力,凌萧就越能清楚自己和皇帝的差距。

The more he knew about the Emperor’s power and capability, the more Ling Xiao became clear of their disparity.

皇帝如今也不会要自己的性命,自己没必要和皇帝对着干。

Now that the Emperor did not want his life, he had no reason to confront the Emperor.

洗漱完,旁边的宫女跪在了地上,请示道:“皇君,皇上临走前,说是有样东西让奴婢带您去看。”

After he cleaned up, the maid kneeling by the side forwarded her orders, “King Consort, the Emperor had told this servant to lead you somewhere to show you something before he left this morning.”

“?”凌萧疑惑,皇帝赏赐给他的东西千千万万,但几乎都是带进宫中来的,是什么东西让自己去看的?

“?” Ling Xiao was puzzled. The things the Emperor bestowed on him were innumerable, but almost all of them were brought into his palace. What would it be for him to need to go look at it?

凌萧有了丝兴趣,便道:“那前面带路吧。”

Ling Xiao was a bit interest and walked over, “Then lead the way.”

宫女行了一礼,带着凌萧出门。

The maid saluted and led Ling Xiao out.

门口俨然守着两黑衣劲装的侍女,凌萧走近一看才知道,其中一人是暗香。

The entrance was guarded by two maids dressed in black. Ling Xiao only noticed that one of them was An Xiang when he went near.

凌萧开心的打招呼,暗香带着另外一人行礼:“公子。”

Ling Xiao happily greeted them, and An Xiang with her fellow maid saluted. “Young Master.”

这两人倒是还叫自己公子,看来很听自己的话呢。

These two still called him Young Master, it looks like they listened to his commands a lot.

凌萧扶起两人道:“没必要多礼。”

Ling Xiao helped the two up, “You two don’t need to be so polite.”

暗香闻言浅笑:“公子,皇上派我二人前来保护你,这位是暗咏。”

An Xiang gave a shallow smile, “Young Master, the Emperor sent the two of us to protect you, this is An Yong.”

就是假扮吉祥的那位。

The one that pretended to be Ji Xiang.

凌萧了然,打量了下暗咏,面容清秀,和先前的吉祥差不多。

Ling Xiao understood and sized up An Yong. Her appearance was delicate and pretty, pretty similar to the previous Ji Xiang.

“公子,皇上让属下二人陪着您一同前往。”暗香看向宫女说道。

“Young Master, the Emperor wants us two subordinates to accompany you.” An Xiang looked at the other normal maid and said.

凌萧微微诧异:“这皇上要我去哪里,竟然让你二人都跟着。”

Ling Xiao was slightly flabbergasted, “Just where does the Emperor want me to go? Even having you two follow me.”

暗香回道:“公子您去了便知道了。”

An Xiang replied, “You will know once you go Young Master.”

凌萧更感兴趣了。

Ling Xiao’s interest was provoked even more.

宫女左拐右拐,带凌萧去的地方,凌萧并不陌生。

The maid turned many corners and led Ling Xiao to a place that he was not unfamiliar with.

这里荒草满院,凄清无比。

Weeds covered the courtyard, somber without compare.

俨然是当初关着莫绮的冷宫。

It was the cold palace Mo Qi was sent to before.

凌萧跟着宫女走近,宫女便候在了一旁,让凌萧走在了前头。

Ling Xiao followed the maid closer to the palace until the maid changed to beside him, so that Ling Xiao would be walking in front.

凌萧咽了咽口水,回头看了看两位侍女坚定的目光,抬脚往里面走去。

Ling Xiao swallowed and turned around to look at the firm sight of the two maids before finally raising a foot to walk inside.

“啊……啊啊啊……你们别过来!”

“AH…AHHHHHHH…. Don’t come over!”

刚走近一步,便听得一声尖叫。

He had just walked in a step when he heard a shriek.

尖叫凄惨无比,喊得凌萧全身发麻。

The shriek was miserable beyond compare, calling Ling Xiao chills when he heard it.

凌萧惊了一跳,眼睛看向声源处,才发现,在冷宫阴暗的角落,蹲着一个人。

Ling Xiao jumped a bit, his eyes looking toward where the sound came from and finally found a person crouching by a dim corner in the cold palace.

一个蓬头丐面,衣着破破烂烂的人,身形隐隐可以看出是一个女子。

A disheveled beggar face with worned out and broken cloth, one could faintly make out that the figure is a woman.

那人见有人凑近她,便怯生生的抬头。

When that person saw that someone was approaching her, she timidly raised her head.

美目流盼,风情犹存,凌萧遽然一阵,光是这双眼,凌萧便能知晓这人的身份了。

Eyes flowing with hope and filled with grace. Ling Xiao knew who the person was just by these eyes.

是莫绮。

It was Mo Qi.

凌萧面色冷了下来。

Ling Xiao’s face went cold.

暗香默不作声的上前一步,将自己的佩剑递在了凌萧的面前:“公子,这是主子赏赐给您的。”

An Xiang quietly walked and passed a sword forward, “Young Master, this was bestowed from Master to you.”

凌萧垂眸盯着下方的佩剑,讶然的瞪眼。

Ling Xiao drooped his eyes to stare at the sword, widening his eyes in shock.

皇帝的意思……

So the Emperor idea was…

“主子说,您的仇人给您自己亲手处置会让您更痛快。”

“Master said, allowing you to kill your foe personally would be more delightful for you.”

暗香的话,解答了凌萧的疑惑。

An Xiang’s words answered Ling Xiao’s misgivings.

凌萧抿唇,一把抽出了佩剑,朝莫绮走去。

Ling Xiao pursed his lip, then took ahold of the sword and walked toward Mo Qi.

莫绮惊慌失措。

Mo Qi lost her head out of fear.

“你别过来,别过来……”

“Don’t come near me, don’t come…”

她念叨着,手在两侧胡乱的抓,似乎想抓住什么令人心安的东西。

She kept repeating that phrase while her hands helplessly reached out to grab something, something that would give her a peace of mind.

但她两侧空空,哪里有东西可抓。

But her sides were empty, so where would she find something?

凌萧一步步的凑近,她一步步后退,退到无处可退。

Ling Xiao walked closer step by step while she step by step retreated, until there was nowhere else for her to retreat to.

她突然安静了下来,待凌萧一凑近,她猛然抬头,挥爪袭向凌萧。

She suddenly went quiet, waiting until Ling Xiao got closer before suddenly raising her head and waving her claws to attack Ling Xiao.

凌萧闪躲,下一秒,她便被暗香暗咏压制在了原地。

Ling Xiao dodged and in the next second, Mo Qi was pressed down onto the ground by An Xiang and An Yong.

“凌萧,你个混蛋!”莫绮发疯似得要朝凌萧袭击:“你以为我会死吗?你做梦!我活得过一次就能活过第二次,你早晚会被我消灭殆尽的!”

“Ling Xiao, you b*stard!” Mo Qi crazily tried to attack Ling Xiao, “Do you think I will die? Dream on! If I can revive once, I can revive a second time, you will be ended by me eventually!”

“我要你永生永世不得超生!”莫绮恶毒的诅咒。

“I want you to forever never reincarnate!” Mo Qi maliciously cursed him.

“啊啊啊啊啊啊……”莫绮状似癫狂,凌萧被喷了一脸的口水,冷笑出声:“你还没有看清楚状况吗?现在可是我!”

“AHHHHHHHH…” Mo Qi went crazy. Ling Xiao who had been sprayed a face full of saliva still coldly sneered, “Are you not clear with your condition right now? It’s now me!”

“握着能杀死你的利器!”凌萧快步上前,用剑指着莫绮。

“That holds a weapon that can kill you!” Ling Xiao quickly advanced, pointing the sword at Mo Qi.

莫绮畏缩了一下,又似全然不怕一般,冲道:“你用剑指着我又怎样?当初我将你毒死了你还不是没死成?”

Mo Qi cowered for only a moment then turned back to being completely fearless and retorted back, “So what if you have a sword pointed at me? Back then when I poisoned you to death, didn’t you still die?”

“呵……”莫绮冷笑,长发披散遮挡了面容,嘴角却弯起了奇怪的弧度:“在你被毒死之后,皇帝竟然跟我说喜欢的从来不是我,而是喜欢看你这狗太监忙里忙外的,赐我的皇后之位也是给你留的,凌萧,我从不后悔杀你,只要有你一天不死,我就一天不得安宁!”

“Heh…” Mo Qi sneered. Her long hair hide her face, but her lips curved into a strange smile, “After you were poisoned to death, the Emperor told me that the one he liked was never me, but rather, you, an eunuch that was always busy running around like a dog. The Empress position he gave me was also preserved for you. Ling Xiao, I never regretted killing you, as long as you do not die, then I will never be at peace!”

莫绮说着,似是很开心一般道:“后来,我还不是把你毒死了?你死了真好真好!”

Mo Qi spoke and seem to feel quite happy as she continued, “In the end, didn’t I still kill you by poison? The way you died was great, great!”

突而,莫绮又变得悲伤,宛如疯癫“可是为什么你死了他竟然要找我报仇,砍了我的头,这边又给我喝下了毒酒……”

Suddenly, Mo Qi became sad again and ranted like she was insane, “But why did he suddenly take revenge on me after you died? He chopped off my head there, and then made me drink poisoned wine here…”

她轻笑:“呵……可是我一样都没死成,被砍头也好被赐毒酒也好,我都没死成,既然前两次都不会死,凌萧,你认为你这一次刺死了我,我就真能死了吗?”

She lightly smiled, “Heh… But I never died completely. So what if my head got chopped off? So what if I was poisoned to death? Didn’t I never stay dead? Since I didn’t die the first two times, then I will not die the next. Ling Xiao, do you think that I would really be dead after you stab me to death?”

莫绮疯狂的笑:“哈哈哈!凌萧,你等着,我会回来找你报仇的!”

Mo Qi crazily laughed, “Hahaha! Ling Xiao, just you wait! I will return and take my revenge!”

莫绮说着,目光阴狠,凌萧皱眉,满脸讶然。

While Mo Qi spoke, her eyes were vicious. Ling XIao frowned while surprised filled his whole face.

莫绮所说的毒死,凌萧知道是这辈子皇帝赐死,但砍头……难道是前世?

Mo Qi spoke of being poisoned to death, and he knew that it was what the Emperor told her to commit suicide on this life. But being decapitated… was it in the past lifetime?

前世自己被毒死之后,皇帝说不喜欢莫绮而砍死了莫绮?

After he had been poisoned to death, the Emperor said that the one he liked wasn’t Mo Qi and hacked her to death?

所以,莫绮才重生了?

So that’s why Mo Qi revived?

凌萧敛眸,一脸的失神。

Ling Xiao’s eyes glazed over, his face absent-minded.

“等等。”

“Wait.”

就在凌萧恍神间,门口走来一人。

Just while Ling Xiao was off in another world, another person came from the entrance.

那人身着一身蓝衣,意气风发,面容俊朗,正是被皇帝封为大将军的兰蔚。

That person was dressed in blue and full of vigor. His appearance handsome and clean, it was the Great General Lan Wei that the Emperor conferred.

凌萧嘴角一抽,这人还要来阻止捣乱?

Ling Xiao’s mouth twitched, this person was still trying to cause trouble?

“兰将军,这里似乎不是你该来的地方。”暗香开口。

“General Lan, this place is not a place you should be at.” An Xiang spoke first.

凌萧默默给她点了三十二个赞,这话说到凌萧的心坎里去了。

Ling Xiao silently gave her thirty-two praises, those words were the words straight from the bottom of Ling Xiao’s heart.

莫绮看见兰蔚就像看见了救星一般,挣扎着要朝兰蔚爬去,嘴里软糯的唤着:“兰哥哥……兰哥哥……你救救我,你救救绮绮……”

When Mo Qi saw Lan Wei, it was like she saw a savior and tried to struggle toward him, crawling as she called out, “Big brother Lan… Big brother Lan… save me, save Qi Qi…”

“……”兰蔚淡淡的瞥了莫绮一眼,走到凌萧的面前,在凌萧仇视的目光下,抢夺过凌萧手中的剑道:“皇上那,等会我自会去请罪。”

“……” Lan Wei indifferently gave her a glance then walked in front of Ling Xiao. Under Ling Xiao’s gaze, he took the sword in his hand, “I will personally go beg for forgiveness with the Emperor later.”

“这个女人……”兰蔚说着,上前,一把将剑指在了莫绮的喉间。

“This woman…” Lan Wei spoke and then walked forward, pointing the sword at Mo Qi’s neck.

“!”凌萧愕然。

“!” Ling Xiao was stunned.

暗香暗咏似乎也没有料到兰蔚会如此,都惊奇的看着兰蔚。

An Xiang and An Yong also did not foresee that Lan Wei would do this, they were all looking at him in surprise.

兰蔚一把挑开莫绮披散在脸颊旁的头发,凌萧这才发现她的脸颊竟然已经溃烂不堪。

Lan Wei moved aside the hair that was on Mo Qi’s cheek, and then Ling Xiao could finally see that her cheek had already festered beyond repair.

绝色容貌的莫绮,竟然成了一个丑陋的毁容女子。

The remarkably beautiful Mo Qi had turned into an ugly and disfigured woman.

“这……”凌萧愕然。

“This…” Ling Xiao was beyond speechless.

兰蔚冷道:“这是她自找的,她想害你,却被你逼着喝下了自己准备好的毒药。”

Lan Wei coldly answered, “This was something she brought onto herself, she wanted to harm you, but was forced to drink the poison she prepared herself.”

“……”凌萧隐隐记得这件事,在邵国皇子府邸。

“……” Ling Xiao faintly remembered this matter when he was at the Shao Country Prince’s home.

兰蔚道:“这幅尊容才配的上你的蛇蝎心肠!”

Lan Wei said, “Only this kind of appearance can match your scorpion heart!”

这话说的是莫绮,莫绮愕然,他说话的语气中满含恨意与怨念。

Those words were said to Mo Qi, stunning her completely. The tone he spoke in was full of hatred and resentment.

这是他被欺骗了感情,当初被利用了的怨怼。

It was the grudge from when his emotions were cheated and exploited.

这么久了,怨怼日渐增多,不做点什么,他无法原谅当初被情感蒙蔽了的自己。

It’s been so long, and his grudge increased day by day. If he didn’t do something, he would be unable to forgive the him whose feelings were deceived back then.

“当初对我狠绝时候,你想过这天吗?”

“Back when you cruelly cut me off that day, have you ever thought of this day?”

兰蔚问着,紧紧的握紧了剑柄。

Lan Wei asked and tightly held the sword’s hilt.

在莫绮将要回话的瞬间,他突而发难,剑快的让凌萧只看见了一个残影,莫绮便倒在了地上。

In the moment Mo Qi was about to reply, he moved, the sword moved so quickly Ling Xiao could only see the afterimage. Mo Qi fell to the ground.

她的身下是一滩的血水。

Below her was a pool of blood.

兰蔚回头,突而跪在了凌萧的面前,凌萧被他的动作吓得后退了一步。

Lan Wei turned back around and quickly knelt in front of Ling Xiao. The sudden movement alarmed him and he took a step back.

兰蔚低头道:“皇君,她跟我有仇,我夺了您的剑,先您一步杀了她,目中无人,请降罪。”

Lan Wei said with his head down, “King Consort, I have hatred with her, so I took your sword and killed her first without heed. Please punish this one.”

“……”凌萧愕然,这还是他第一次看见这样的兰蔚,平时总跟自己唱反调的家伙,这时候这么正经而恭敬的跪在自己的面前,还真是有些不习惯。

“……” Ling Xiao was once again speechless, this was the first time he saw this kind of Lan Wei. the guy who always expressed a different view than him would be so serious and respectful in front of him, he really wasn’t used to it.

凌萧皱了皱眉,微微思索,他没有理会兰蔚,而是直接越过他来到了莫绮的旁边。

Ling Xiao frowned, thinking for a while. He did not pay attention to Lan Wei, instead, he went around him to stand beside Mo Qi.

蹲下确认了她确实已经死亡,凌萧站了起来,吩咐暗香暗咏道:“去弄些柴火来,将她烧了。”

Crouching down to confirm that she was truly dead, Ling Xiao stood back up and ordered An Xiang and An Yong, “Go get some firewood and burn her.”

“烧?”暗香诧异:“公子,这人已经死了,直接交给宫人扔乱葬岗就可以了。”

“Burn?” An Xiang was flabbergasted, “Young Master, this person’s already dead, we can just give her to a palace servant and have her randomly buried somewhere.”

凌萧哑然,他没办法告诉这位小姑娘,他是担心这莫绮又复生或者重生。

Ling Xiao couldn’t say to this girl that it was because he was worried that she would revive again or be reborn.

烧掉尸体,让她连重生都找不到地,是最好的。

Burning the body so that she couldn’t be reborn would be the best.

思及此,凌萧找了个憋足的理由道:“……好歹同乡一场,烧了埋了也算是跟她恩怨两清了。”

While thinking of that, Ling Xiao choked out a reason, “…Good or bad, we’re still people from the same place. Burning her then burying her would clear our grudges with each other.”

一直没有说话的暗咏没忍住说道:“公子,她那么害您,您怎么还……”

An Yong who kept quiet all this time finally spoke, “Young Master, she tried to harm you so much, yet why do you still…”

刚准备说下去,暗咏被暗香拉住了,明显是让暗咏别再说下去,暗咏住了嘴,暗香便清了清嗓子道:“公子,那属下去弄柴火来。”

Just when he was prepared to say more, An Yong was tugged by An Xiang, clearly telling her to not keep asking. An Yong shut her mouth while An Xiang cleared her throat, “Then Young Master, this subordinate will go get some firewood.”

凌萧道:“暗咏一起去吧,我有话单独和兰将军说说。”

Ling Xiao added, “Have An Yong go with you, I have something I need to say to Lan Wei alone.”

“这……”暗咏有些犹豫,暗香拉住她道:“那属下二人去了,公子。”

“That…” An Yong wavered a bit but An Xiang pulled her, “Then us two subordinates will go, Young Master.”

“恩”凌萧点头,目送着两位侍女离开。

Ling Xiao “Hm” with a nod, following the two departing maids with his eyes.

便转向兰蔚道:“起来吧,兰蔚,这里只有你我,不需要装。”

Then he turned to Lan Wei, “Stand up Lan Wei, there’s only you and me here, there’s no need to pretend.”

“装?”兰蔚嘴角抽搐:“你以为我是装?”

“Pretend?” Lan Wei’s mouth twitched, “You think I’m pretending?”

兰蔚看起来很是气愤,突得从地上跳起道:“你知不知道我下了多大的决心,才给你下跪!你竟然说我装?”

Lan Wei looked very indignant and jumped up from the ground, “Do you know what kind of resolution I made to kneel to you! And you’re saying I’m pretending?”

兰蔚突然像炸了毛一般,恶狠狠的朝凌萧怒吼。

Lan Wei suddenly looked like all his hair was puffed and fiercely bellowed at Ling Xiao.

那样子,宛如一只幼小的狮子,挥舞着手中还不够锋利的爪子,威胁着凌萧,不仅没有让凌萧感觉到威胁,反而觉得这样的兰蔚很是滑稽,他不由哑然失笑。

That appearance was like a young lion, brandishing his claws that were not sharp enough, to threaten Ling Xiao. Not only did Ling Xiao not feel threatened, he felt that this Lan Wei was rather funny and he started to laugh.

听得凌萧的笑声,看见凌萧勾起了唇角,兰蔚瞬间沉默了下来,这才发现自己做了多么幼稚的行为。

Hearing Ling Xiao laugh and seeing Ling Xiao’s happy smile, Lan Wei went silent for a moment, coming to notice just how childish his action was just now.

他敛下了眸,暗暗咬牙,怎么自己到了这个人的面前就会变得这么幼稚。

He looked down and quietly clenched his teeth, why did he always become so childish when in front of this man?

“好了好了”凌萧咧嘴笑出了八颗白闪闪的牙齿,闪得兰蔚眼角直抽搐。

“Alright alright.” Ling Xiao’s smile revealed eight shiny white teeth, causing Lan Wei’s eyes to twitch some more at the sight.

他不由撇开了眼,凌萧笑着凑近他道:“行了!再生气就显得小家子气了。”

He looked away while Ling Xiao smiled and got nearer to him, “Enough! If you keep staying angry, it would be petty.”

“哼。”兰蔚撇头不理他。

“Hmph.” Lan Wei turned his head away, refusing to acknowledge him.

凌萧见此,摸了摸鼻子,凑近他扯话题道:“说实话啊,兰蔚,我真没想到你会下手啊!”

Ling Xiao rubbed his nose when he saw that and leaned closer while switching the subject, “To tell the truth, Lan Wei, I really didn’t expect that you would do it!”

“这可是你之前要死要活爱的人吶。”凌萧说着,踢了踢莫绮的尸体。

“This was the person who you loved desperately before.” While Ling Xiao spoke, he kicked Mo Qi’s corpse a few times.

兰蔚微微一愣,神情复杂。

Lan Wei slightly paused, his expression complicated.

凌萧见状,突然伸手搂过兰蔚的肩头,转移兰蔚的注意力夸奖道:“兄弟,干的好!”

Ling Xiao suddenly reached out his hand to slug over Lan Wei’s shoulder, shifting his attention away by praising him, “My brother, you did great!”

温软的身子靠在了自己的边上,兰蔚遽然一顿,身子一僵,撇头去看凌萧,却见凌萧快意的笑。

With a soft body leaning against his side, Lan Wei suddenly stopped, his body going rigid as he turned his head to look at Ling Xiao, only to see the other party smiling in glee.

那笑格外耀眼,耀眼的兰蔚眼睛都感觉刺痛了起来。

That smile was especially dazzling, so dazzling Lan Wei’s eyes felt a stab of pain.

他耸了耸肩头,示意凌萧松开他道:“你已经是皇君了,想害我死吗?”

He shrugged his shoulders, hinting at Ling Xiao to release him. “You’re already the King Consort, do you want me to die?”

凌萧笑容一僵,嗤道:“怕什么,这里又没有其他人,皇上不会知道的,而且,我们又没做什么,兄弟间这样不很正常吗?”

Ling Xiao’s smile went rigid and scoffed, “What are you afraid of? There aren’t any other people around, so the Emperor won’t know. Plus, we aren’t doing anything, isn’t something like this very normal between brothers?”

“兄弟?”兰蔚反问。

“Brothers?” Lan Wei asked instead.

凌萧笑道:“杀了莫绮,给我报仇了,就是我兄弟,今天你敢杀她,凌萧就敢将过往的一切当做没有发生过,咱们过去仇怨两清。”

Ling Xiao smiled, “With you killing Mo Qi, my revenge has been taken. So you are my brother. You dare to kill her today, Ling Xiao will treat everything that happened in the past as if it never happened. Our conflict and debts have been settled.”

“你未免太自大了吧?”兰蔚鄙夷道:“我有说过跟你两清吗?”

“Aren’t you a bit too arrogant?” Lan Wei said with despise, “Have I said our debts were settled before?”

他可不想当凌萧的兄弟,想法就跟昨夜遇到的那个人一样。

He did not want to be Ling Xiao’s brother. His thoughts were the same as the person he met last night.

兄弟这个词,会压得人喘不过气来。

The word ‘brothers’ would pressure someone until they could not breathe.

想爱又不能爱。

Wanting to love, but cannot love.

回想起昨夜,兰蔚思绪飘飞。

Thinking back to last night, Lan Wei’s train of thought flew.

“你还不走吗?要看到什么时候?”兰蔚在御花园遇见傅禹君,是在凌萧走后。

“Are you still not leaving? Just how long as you going to watch?” Lan Wei met Fu Yujun in the Imperial Garden after Ling Xiao left.

凌萧的背影很决绝,兰蔚都要同情面前这个黯然神伤的男子了。

Ling Xiao’s back figure of severing relations was very determined, Lan Wei almost completely sympathized with this dim and depressed man.

但是,他和凌萧的观点一样。

However, his standpoint was the same as Ling Xiao.

这个人,不该出现在这里。

This person should not appear here.

“需要我叫侍卫,把你带回宴会吗?”兰蔚冷嘲。

“Do you need me to call a imperial guard to bring you back to the banquet?” Lan Wei coldly mocked.

傅禹君这才将目光移向了兰蔚。

Only then did Fu Yujun move his line of sight to Lan Wei.

兰蔚被他绝望的目光望的一震,不由想起了当初被莫绮抛弃的自己。

Lan Wei was shaken by his gaze filled with despair and unconsciously recalled when Mo Qi abandon him.

鬼斧神差的,他就开了口劝道:“凌萧不希望你如此。”

He didn’t believe he would do this, but he once again spoke to persuade him, “Ling Xiao did not wish for you to end up like this.”

傅禹君并不想理兰蔚,直接越过他离开,兰蔚敛眸道:“他若是知道自己求情,救了一个根本不会振作起来的人,肯定后悔死了。”

Fu Yujun did not want to deal with Lan Wei so he just walked passed him. Lan Wei calmly said, “If he knew that he had pled leniency for and saved a man who didn’t want to pull himself together, he would certainly regret it.”

傅禹君身子一僵,震慑在原地。

Fu Yujun’s body went rigid and he was floored.

兰蔚回头道:“你是邵国之君,邵国千千万万的人都在等你振作,可你如此,对得起等你的国民,对得起曾经为你求情的凌萧吗?”

Lan Wei said behind him, “You are Shao Country’s ruler, the many people of Shao Country are all waiting for you to pull yourself together. But with you like this, can you face your citizens? Can you face Ling Xiao who pled for leniency on your behalf.”

兰蔚说着,越过他往前走去:“你自己好好想想吧。”

Lan Wei spoke and walked pass him, “You can think carefully about it.”

“等等。”傅禹君喊住了兰蔚。

“Wait.” Fu Yujun stopped Lan Wei with his shout.

“你为何要劝我,你是牧国的将军,若是我振作了,对牧国不就是一大损失吗?”

“Why are you trying to persuade me? You are Mu Country’s General, if I pull myself together, isn’t it a huge loss to Mu Country?”

兰蔚闻言,轻狂的道:“你认为你振作就能打击牧国?你太狂妄了。”

Lan Wei frivolously said, “You think that you can make Mu Country suffer a loss once you pull yourself together? You’re way too arrogant.”

“牧国可不仅仅有皇上,还有我这个将军,我誓死会保卫牧国的。”

“Mu Country does not only have the Emperor, it also has me, this General. I pledged my life to defend it.”

“!”傅禹君抿唇:“你也太瞧不上我了。”

“!” Fu Yujun pursed his lips, “You’re looking down on me too much.”

“瞧不瞧得上,单看你之后能不能反扑,我随时恭候你的宣战,另外,这一次劝你,就当是当初你让我看清莫绮真面目的还礼。”

“Whether I look down at you or not would depend on if you can counterattack in the future. I look forward to your war declaration at any time. Furthermore, you can take my persuasion as a return for helping me see Mo Qi’s true colors.”

“兰蔚,兰蔚?”思绪飘飞间,兰蔚听得凌萧的叫唤,连忙回神。

“Lan Wei, Lan Wei?” While his train of thought flew about, Lan Wei heard Ling Xiao’s call and promptly returned to his senses.

便瞧见凌萧凑得极近,近得可以看见他面上细小的绒毛,细软的,浅色的,贴在两颊白嫩的肌肤上,令人一阵口干舌燥,心神荡漾。

He then saw Ling Xiao getting very close to him, so close that he could see the tiny hairs on his face, really fine and soft and light in color, on his fair cheeks. It caused his mouth to suddenly go dry and his mind went into turmoil.

兰蔚恨不得,能凑上去舔上几舔,吻了一吻。

Lan Wei hated that he couldn’t go up and lick him a few times, and kiss him once.

他暗沉了眸色,狠狠的咽了咽口水,阻止心底的邪念。

His eyes darken and he harshly swallowed his saliva, preventing the evil desire in the bottom of his heart.

挣脱开了凌萧的相搂,颇为疏远的道:“你已经是皇君了,即使没有人看见,也要注意你的行为,否则怎么死的你都不知道。”

He threw off Ling Xiao’s hug and made some distance between them, “You’re the King Consort now, even if there isn’t anyone around to see it, you still need to pay attention to your conduct. Otherwise, you wouldn’t even know how you die.”

凌萧嗤笑:“你这人怎么回事?明明就在关心人,怎么就这么别扭。”

Ling Xiao sneered, “Just what is going on with you? You are being concerned about someone, but you’re being so awkward about it.”

凌萧抱怨,兰蔚沉默。

Ling Xiao complained while Lan Wei remained silent.

许久,他带了声叹息的问:“当初我离开的时候说要问你一个问题。”

After a while, he asked wearily, “Back then when I was leaving, I had said I wanted to ask you something.”

“现在,莫绮已经死了,你可以正面回答我了,当初为什么要救我?”

“Now that Mo Qi’s already dead, can you answer me, why did you save me back then?”

“?”凌萧一下子没有反应过来,满脸的疑惑。

“?” Ling Xiao did not react immediately and his face was full of confusion.

兰蔚抿唇提醒道:“最初见面,山坡,坠马。”

Lan Wei pursed his lips, then reminded him, “Where we first met. Hillside, I fell off a horse.”

凌萧恍然大悟:“想起来了,原来你已经知道了啊,不过那是我没想救你,就看见有人有危险,凭借着本能就去了,去了才发现,差点连自己都害了!”

Ling Xiao suddenly realized, “I remember now. So you already knew about that. However, I was not thinking of saving you back then, I had just instinctively went to save you when I saw someone in danger. When I went, I almost harmed myself!”

说着,凌萧似乎觉得很气愤一般道:“你倒好,醒来认错了救命恩人不说,想想之前怎么对我的?”

While speaking, Ling Xiao rather indignantly added, “How about you? Forget about going to your benefactor and admitting your mistake when you woke up, have you thought about how you treated me before?”

兰蔚闻言一愣,似乎真回想起了之前,面上不由又青又红。

Lan Wei stared blankly when he heard those words. When he thought of how he was before, his face couldn’t help but go green before going red again.

半响,他才憋了一句道:“那你干嘛不自己说!任由我误会!你自己不也因为莫绮……”

After a long time, he finally choked out a line, “Then why didn’t you explain yourself! Causing me to misunderstand! Weren’t you also because of Mo Qi…”

说到莫绮,他截然而止,似乎怕伤及凌萧一般。

When spoke of Mo Qi, he sharply stopped, like he was afraid of hurting Ling Xiao.

凌萧痴笑:“你也别不好意思说了,我是当初瞎过眼,你没瞎过吗?”

Ling Xiao giggled foolishly, “Don’t be so embarrassed. I was blind at that time, have you not been blind?”

“你瞎得可比我多久了,怎么喊都喊不醒,还说着‘绮绮,不会这样的,她不会骗我哒。’”

“How much longer were you blind compared to me? No matter how I yelled, you would not wake up from it. How did you say it before, ‘Qi Qi would not do this, she would not lie to me.’”

凌萧将兰蔚肉麻的样子学得十足十,还特意加上了现代的卖萌语气,羞得嘴笨的兰蔚一阵面红耳赤。

Ling Xiao studied Lan Wei’s corny appearance thoroughly, and even specially added modern era’s acting cute tone. It shamed the mouth-dumb Lan Wei to be flushed with anger.

“够了!”兰蔚恼羞成怒,大喊了一声。

“Enough!” Lan Wei was ashamed into anger and shouted.

凌萧被惊的一跳,当真停下了口。

Alarmed, Ling Xiao took it seriously and shut up.

兰蔚见凌萧吓着了,嘴笨的又不知如何是好,一时间,竟然两人都僵住了。

Lan Wei saw that Ling Xiao was frightened, but his mouth was dumb to the point he didn’t know what he should say. So in that moment, both remained motionless.

“公子,柴火都在门口了。”

“Young Master, the firewood is at the entrance.”

恰这时,暗香暗咏回来了,解决了这一时的尴尬。

At this moment, An Xiang and An Yong returned, settling this period of awkwardness.

凌萧立马吩咐两人将莫绮抬出去火化。

Ling Xiao immediately ordered two to lift Mo Qi away to be incinerated.

亲眼看见莫绮在火中灰飞烟灭,凌萧这颗心才算完全放下。

Watching Mo Qi being annihilated in the fire with his own eyes, this matter could finally be completely let go of in Ling Xiao’s heart.

回宫之际,兰蔚再一次跪在了凌萧的面前。

When they returned to the palace, Lan Wei once against knelt in front of Ling Xiao.

这一次,是他的表达决心。

This time, it was his way of expressing his determination.

他说这一辈子,誓死效忠皇帝和他凌萧。

He said in this lifetime, he pledged his life and loyalty to the Emperor and Ling Xiao.

这样的感觉,有些怪异,却极大的满足了凌萧的英雄梦。

This kind of feeling was a bit strange, but it greatly satisfied Ling Xiao’s hero dream.

因此,他也没有阻止兰蔚。

As such, he did not stop Lan Wei.

回到宫中的时候,凌萧还在飘飘然,而皇帝已经回来,一边看书一边等在凌萧。

When they returned to the palace, Ling Xiao was still elated. The Emperor had already returned and was reading a book while waiting for Ling Xiao.

见凌萧回来这般模样,皇帝有些诧异,便放下书问道:“对朕的礼物,还满意吗?”

When he saw the look Ling Xiao was giving him, the Emperor was a bit flabbergasted and placed down the book, asking, “Are you satisfied with Our gift?”

“满意满意,超级满意!”凌萧回道。

“Satisfied, satisfied! Super satisfied!” Ling Xiao replied.

“那也是跟朕坦白的时候了。”皇帝这般说来,凌萧猛然回神,看向皇帝。

“Then it is time to be honest with Us.” The Emperor said and Ling Xiao suddenly returned to his senses, looking at the Emperor.

皇帝目光悠悠的对视着凌萧道:“莫绮跟你究竟什么仇怨,不要再跟朕说是差点害你成为太监了,这样的话,骗兰蔚可以,骗朕就显得幼稚了。”

The Emperor’s gaze stayed on Ling Xiao, “Just what kind of hatred does Mo Qi and you have? Don’t tell Us it’s because you were almost forced to become a eunuch, this kind of excuse can deceive Lan Wei, but it would be useless against Us.”

    Since we’re camping it’s time for scary stories:
    “This is a true story (well not really) about one of us (a reader of BL). To preserve her anonymity let’s call her X. One day after reading a great chapter she went outside. On her way to the supermarket she was run over by a truck. Luckily she reincarnated. She woke up in a world similar to our own but there was one difference. When she turned on her computer and went on the internet she realized that… that… that… BL didn’t exist in that world.”
    I hope it wasn’t too scary for you
