Chapter 100 The misunderstanding and heartbeat
Feng Tingye’s face was black and blue. Just when he was about to start, he heard footsteps from outside.
Xia Yuqing’s eyes brightened, she opened her mouth and shouted, “Save…”
Before the words came out, Feng Tingye’s hand quickly covered her mouth. Feng Tingye’s eyes narrowed then he whispered, “Ai Fei, you really aren’t obedient.”
Obedient your sister, you’re going to kill me. Should I just obediently wait for my death? Wait, no… Xia Yuqing stiffened. She stared at the strange man in front of her with wide eyes. Did he just call her… Ai Fei?
Feng Tingye stared at Xia Yuqing’s startled appearance, his face eased slightly, “Zhen can let go of you, but you must agree not to make a sound.”
Xia Yuqing was still immersed in shock and nodded blankly when she heard Feng Tingye’s words.
“Your…. Your Majesty, you……” As Xia Yuqing was about to inquire, the footsteps outside got closer. After a while, a powerful knocking on the door passed into the ears of the two.
Xia Yuqing and Feng Tingye’s face changed at the same time. Xia Yuqing took a deep look at the man in front of her, struggling to soothe her little frightened heart. She tried to calm her voice. “Who… who is it?”
The person outside the door paused for a while before replying: “It’s me, Su Qingyan.”
Xia Yuqing’s eyes narrowed, apparently surprised that Su Qingyan would come to her so late: “Yes… Second Master, is there anything wrong?”
Su Qingyan was silent for a while and sullenly said, “I was just about to sleep when I heard something from your room. I became restless because of the noise, so I came over to see what the hell you are doing?”
Xia Yuqing froze, listening to Su Qingyan’s reluctant words. But in her mind, she could imagine the awkward young man and the expression he was making now.
The tension in her heart could not help but dissipate. This second master wasn’t the average awkward person. He obviously heard that there was movement in the next room and was worried thus came over to see it. But he had to say it as if they had disturbed him forcing him to come over. If she didn’t know his awkward nature, she would think he was heartless.
Xia Yuqing calmed down and whispered: “I had a nightmare just now and I woke up in horror. I’m really sorry to disturb the second master. Since it is late now and a man and women together alone isn’t convenient, when I get up tomorrow, I will make sure to visit second master to apologize in person.”
Hearing Xia Yuqing’s words, the person outside the door breathed a sigh of relief. “That’s fine and no need to apologize as long as you don’t disturb me anymore. It is getting late, take a rest, I’ll go back now. ”
Watching the shadow outside the door leave and clearly hearing the sound of a door-closing from next door, Feng Tingye then looked back. He wanted to say something, but suddenly felt something wet on his hand.
Crystal tears landed drop by drop on the back of Feng Tingye’s hands making the expression on his face freeze. He raised his head slightly to see Xia Yuqing’s teary face.
“…” What’s the situation now? He hasn’t even gotten angry yet? Why did this girl start crying? She is even crying like she had been wronged, this is…. distressing. After seeing Xia Yuqing’s sad appearance, Feng Tingye, who had wanted to teach her a lesson, felt helpless.
It’s not like he hasn’t seen a woman cry before. Don’t look at Liu Yixiang’s shrewd, bold attitude. When she was growing up, she was a big crybaby. She cried at every turn. But when he saw Liu Yixiang’s heartbreaking tears, he would just feel a bit impatient. He had never felt this helpless.
Could it be because of the different way they cried? That’s not right. Since he was 15 years old, many ministers have scrambled to send women to his house. Of course, these women were returned by him in the end. When they were returned, there were many tears and begging not to be sent back. However, he was numb to them and felt annoyed, never like today….. so heartbreaking.
Thinking like this, Feng Tingye was frustrated a bit. It was clear that he was forced to wear the green hat, but looking at this situation, why does it look like he was the bully bullying the weak?
Xia Yuqing didn’t know the knot in Feng Tingye’s heart at this moment. She only knew that she was wronged. Just like a child who crossed the ocean, far away from home, away from her relatives, it was difficult to see a loved one after being separated for many years. Apart from joy, she was full of grievances.
She was grieving for what she suffered outside, grieving for all the fears she had, grieving for her loneliness and perseverance. Knowing that the other party was Feng Tingye, all the vulnerabilities hidden behind her smile were all exposed at once. Why this was so? She is afraid that even she herself was not very clear.
Even if she didn’t want to admit it, the person she thought of most of all when she was kidnapped, was Feng Tingye. She thought about how well this person treated her, thought about how this person indulged her, and she thought about the expression he would make when he found her. She had not expected that this would be what happened when the two met again.
Thinking of the scene she awoke to, Feng Tingye’s expression at that time, he looked like he wanted to kill someone.
Kill? Xia Yuqing’s eyes narrowed. Then she suddenly remembered, Yun Xi fainted because of Feng Tingye, so she hurriedly looked down to see whether Yun Xi was alive or not.
“Xiao Xi, Xiao Xi. Are you okay, please answer me. Your Majesty, what have you done to her? Hey……” Xia Yuqing stared blankly as Yun Xi who was originally pressed on her body, with a whoosh, was rolled off the bed and lay flat on the cold ground.
“Your Majesty, what are you doing?” Xia Yuqing screamed when she realized what had happened. She stepped forward to see if Yun Xi was injured, but Feng Tingye grasped her wrist and pulled her back.
Xia Yuqing raised her head, but she was still in place. Feng Tingye’s face was as dark as the bottom of a pot. It was not difficult to see how bad his mood was at the moment.
Xia Yuqing found out now that Feng Tingye was in a rage. But why? Who provoked the Ultra Seme Lord? Mommy, the Ultra Seme Lord looks so scary when he’s angry!!!! If I look at it, I will have nightmares!
Feng Tingye was indeed in a state of anger. He was still struggling with how to treat Xia Yuqing. Looking at Xia Yuqing’s aggrieved look, he could not help but soften. But he did not expect that when Xia Yuqing stopped crying, she would be concerned about that adulter!!!!
Xia Yuqing’s move was tantamount to pouring oil on fire, directly frying Feng Tingye’s mind. He grabbed Xia Yuqing.
“What am I doing? Zhen wants to ask you, what happened since you have left the palace? What is with this man? How do you know each other? Why is he in your room? Why is he in your bed with you sharing a pillow? Are you two doing something that shouldn’t be done….. behind Zhen’s back? After asking the last question, Feng Tingye can be said to be grinding his teeth. A strange pain spread through his chest, making him suck in a breath to suppress the pain in his heart.
Xia Yuqing was smashed by the questions thrown at her from Feng Tingye. After a while, she asked in confusion: “What can two women do that shouldn’t be seen?”
Look at a small yellow book together? But her private collection is all in the palace. Even if she wanted to share it with Yun Xi, it was impossible!
“Of course two women can…” Feng Tingye thought that Xia Yuqing wanted to quibble and was already ready to retort back when he stopped halfway, “You said… two women?”
“Yes, besides you, Yunxi and I are both women. What can we possibly do?” Xia Yuqing asked with a frown.
Feng Tingye’s face was slightly stiff and he looked at Xia Yuqing stunned. Then he looked at the bleak boy who was still lying on the ground and pointed at her asking: “He is a… woman?”
Xia Yuqing then remembered that Yun Xi had always been dressing as a man. In order to prevent being seen through, even when she slept, her man bun would not be untied. So she indeed looked like a young boy right now.
“Well, Xi Er, she… is dressed as a man.”
“Women dressed as a man?” Feng Tingye still hasn’t come back from this contrasting result, he turned his head and looked at Yun Xi’s inexorable baby face down to her flat chest. Then…..
Seeing Feng Tingye’s eyes getting more and more blatant and very eager to try to confirm his suspicion, Xia Yuqing hurriedly broke free of Feng Tingye’s shackles. She stood up in front of Yun Xi, raised her head and said: “You, you, you…… Yun Xi is a girl. This is the truth. Don’t touch her, just look at her neck. Look, there is no adam’s apple, she is a girl.”
Xia Yuqing’s exclamation finally pulled back Feng Tingye’s reason. Seeing Xia Yuqing’s stance that looked like a mother hen protecting her offsprings, Feng Tingye was stunned. Then a trace of joy flashed across his eyes. A big smile was hanging on his face as he looked at Xia Yuqing: “Ai Fei, why are you so nervous? Are you worried that if Zhen touches this Ya Tou’s body, Zhen will fall in love with her and you are……jealous?”
Xia Yuqing’s eyes dodged his gaze, she didn’t dare to look at his hot eyes: “No….. no, I was just worried that Your Majesty would ruin the girl’s reputation and prevent her from marrying.”
Yes, she was so nervous because she was worried that Yun Xi’s reputation would be damaged. Yun Xi was her own sister. She… she would not admit that during the moment when she saw Feng Tingye stare at Yun Xi that had made her… very uncomfortable.
Feng Tingye stared at Xia Yuqing’s profile, his eyes narrowed slightly. There was a shred of firmness, he smiled, “If this is the case, you don’t have to worry about it, Ai Fei. I am a responsible person. If I do something, I would take responsibility. After touching her, she would naturally be sent to the palace and serve as a concubine.”
Xia Yuqing looked up in disbelief as she stared at Feng Tingye, her eyes were full of hurt that was too late to be stowed away: “How could you? How can you…..?”
Responsible? You would be responsible for her, then what about me? Who will be responsible for me? Xia Yuqing was frightened by the flash of thought in her mind, the pain on her face became more intense.
Looking at Xia Yuqing react like this, Feng Tingye’s hands hidden under his sleeves clenched tightly. He took a hard step forward and aggressively said, “Why not? Being able to marry into the palace, flying up to become a phoenix, is the wish of every woman. I believe that this girl would be extremely happy. Also, Ai Fei, since you can sleep with her in the same bed, you must be affectionate with this girl like a sister. Thinking like this, you should not mind if she came.”
“Flying up to become a phoenix?” Xia Yuqing who finally managed to hold back the tears had the dam burst open once again “not everyone is willing to accept this favour from His Majesty…”
Entering the palace, becoming a concubine, if she eventually became a queen, it was inevitable for her to compete with the harem of three thousand for one man. If she had a choice, she would rather not have this favour and would just hope for one man who really treasured her.
Therefore, she was always a bit reserved about how Feng Tingye treated her. It was because she had always remembered a phrase from the future. The most ruthless is the emperor’s family. But in the end, she was still….. trapped in this gentle web Feng Tingye weaved. Now when she finally determined her own feelings, the man told her that he liked another woman and his love has changed? This blow to her broken heart was not small.
“How can… how can…” Why don’t you care? Xia Yuqing murmured the unfinished words and the tears on her face that erupted would not stop.
Feng Tingye looked at Xia Yuqing’s dispirited expression and the distress in his eyes was about to overflow. He finally sighed, stretched out his hand to pull Xia Yuqing up and took her into his arms.
“Can’t you just admit the truth with me?” Tell me that you care about me and that you mind sharing me with others. Let me understand, that I’m not just being hot-headed or else I won’t get it.
“Good, don’t cry. I’ll listen to you. I swear in this life, if I don’t die, if you don’t give up, there will be only you. Only you.” He was claiming this as himself and not Zhen.This was a vow not established as the Feng Tingye of Ye Country, but as Xia Yuqing’s man, her husband, Feng Tingye.
Xia Yuqing’s crying did not stop, instead it became more and more intense. In this familiar embrace, all her grievances became evident.
From the anxiety of being abducted to the cold treatment of Feng Tingye, all those ups and downs that she have experienced until now, it seemed she was letting it all out at once.
Listening to Xia Yuqing crying louder and louder, although Feng Tingye wanted to let her vent, he still had to remind her: “Shh, keep quiet. You still have a troublesome person next door.”
Sure enough, Xia Yuqing’s crying became a little quieter, but she still didn’t stop. Looking at the culprit who caused her to cry, she indignantly bit into Feng Tingye’s shoulder.
Feng Tingye frowned, but in the end did nothing. He just reached out and touched the hair of the person in his arms condoning her behaviour.
Xia Yuqing bit hard and her mouth felt a little bit sore. Then she slowly let go. The tears in her eyes stopped a little. She buried her face in Feng Tingye’s arms and sniffed. “You said you are going to be responsible for another women, you don’t want me anymore?”
“…” Feng Ting paused. This girl’s ability to reverse right and wrong is still so disturbing!
“I don’t not want you, I was wrong. I shouldn’t scare you like that. I swear, I won’t do it again in the future.” It was a rare scare, but the effect was unexpectedly good.
Xia Yuqing snorted coldly and sniffed, “You said just now that Yun Xi and I lived in the same room and did unspeakable things.”
Knowing that Xia Yuqing was ready to throw a little tantrum, Feng Tingye had a helpless face, but still received it all. He whispered in a seductive manner: “Yes, yes, I was wrong. I should not misunderstand you and that girl, Yunxi. However, she cannot be allowed to sleep with you in the future. No, besides me no one can. ”
Xia Yuqing protested: “Yunxi is a girl.”
Feng Tingye could not tolerate it and replied, “Men and women are the same, not allowed.”
“So oppressive.” Xia Yuqing muttered and buried her face deeper into the other’s arms. She felt a faint touch of sweetness in her heart, but …
“Also, I have been abducted for so long before you found me. I had to be scared for so many days, you need to take responsibility.”
Something slowly settled in Feng Tingye’s eyes and the corners of his lips were slightly hooked upward, “Yes, it’s my fault. I will take responsibility.”
“That’s about right.” Xia Yuqing didn’t sense the arrival of “danger”, she lowered her head and pinched Feng Tingye’s clothes.
Feng Tingye enjoyed her acting cute and helpless, but still had to interrupt her because…..
“My account, have you finished calculating?”
“Huh, for the time being.” Xia Yuqing said mercifully.
Feng Tingye raised his eyebrows and smiled slyly: “Well, let’s calculate your account next.”
“My account?” Xia Yuqing’s head poked out of Feng Tingye’s arms. She looked at Feng Tingye in disbelief, “What account do I have? Didn’t I finish calculating just now?”
“Well, although Yun Xi is a woman, but the master and the second master tonight aren’t.”
“What?” Xia Yuqing exclaimed, thinking ruefully back when they were dining today. Feng Tingye was also at the table, but she didn’t recognize him. That was to say, he heard all the words at the table and heard the old lady calling her daughter-in-law, messing around and pairing herself with the master. He even heard her explanation later, thus he had run over in a hurry. Seeing that she was sleeping in the same bed with Yun Xi, the Ultra Seme Lord must have thought that she had given him a green hat.
Alas, she was worse off than Dou E!!!!! No wonder….. no wonder she felt chilly at the table and thought it was an illusion. It turns out… it turns out to be true. Catching the cheating couple in the act, does it always need to be so melodramatic?!?! I have been played by the passing through god, please don’t make more trouble! !! !!
“This, I can explain this.” Xia Yuqing gave a cough. In order not to let this matter get more and more dark, she explained what happened: being kidnapped by Jiang Zhaorou, getting Yun Xi’s aid, meeting the mountain bandits, and posing as a couple to survive, and how the eager old madam had mistaken her for her daughter-in-law.
After that, Xia Yuqing used her two innocent eyes to look at Feng Tingye as if she was saying “I’m speaking the truth, you have to believe me.”
Feng Ting’s eyes narrowed. In fact, after knowing that Yun Xi was a woman, he had already guessed the beginning and end of the matter. Now hearing Xia Yuqing speak, he naturally believed her. However, after the meal in the afternoon, he was not in a good mood. In addition to the sorrow of seeing the entangled bodies of the two when entering the door, it could not be so simple to forget.
“And the second master.”
“Second master?” Xia Yuqing froze, what’s the matter with the second master?
“Visiting late at night, so deep in the night. Lone boy and girl, he cares about you so much, I’m not happy.” Feng Tingye leaned close to Xia Yuqing’s ear and said straightforwardly.
“…” Xia Yuqing flushed. She covered her hot little face and took a few steps back, glaring at Feng Tingye.
Ultra Seme Lord, can you be more childish? Can you be possessive and arrogant at home? Furthermore, when did you see second master caring about me? Well, he did care, just a little roundabout in his way. But he cared about me because he is a doctor and has a kind nature. So it’s normal for him to come and check-up. The most important thing is it was the second master who came looking for me, why is this being put on my account. Do you think I am a fool?!?!
