Chapter 122 Cat catching rat, scratch scratch scratch!
“Um… can anyone tell me what’s the situation now?” In Xia Mingyuan’s mansion, in a relatively secret study room, Liu Yixiang looked at the people in front of her in completely different outfits from usual. She blinked her eyes and looked puzzled.
“Ahem, let me do this. Because the emperor and I have special identities, we can’t be too high-profile to see you. Thus, we dressed up in a small disguise. The emperor is a businessman who goes abroad to do business and I am the younger brother who accompanies his older brother to increase his experience. These are the maidservants who accompany them.” Xia Yuqing pointed to Cui Er and Li Yuan.
“That’s the accountant.” → This is Leng Ruofeng, who nodded towards Liu Yixiang with a face of paralysis.
“This is the bodyguard.” → This is He Wenzhong scratching his head.
“…” Liu Yixiang and Xia Mingyuan were speechless for a while. At the same time they turned their gazes to the only unfamiliar Su Wuduan. “This is…”
“This is an unrelated person, you don’t need to know.”
“… an unrelated person? Little Junior Sister, you have become more and more courageous recently!” A few blue veins burst out of Su Wuduan’s forehead. It scared Xia Yuqing into stepping back several steps and hiding behind Feng Tingye.
At the same time, Cui Er stepped forward quickly, blocking Xia Yuqing’s other side.
Su Wuduan raised his head to look at Feng Tingye, then at Cui Er, then he turned his head and ran away in tears.
“Ahhhhhhh, is your senior brother not human? Your Senior brother also has human rights! We are all humans, why is the treatment so different? This is unfair, so unfair!”
“…” Liu Yixiang and Xia Mingyuan looked at the youth squatting and talking to himself. They were speechless again. They turned to look at Feng Tingye, as if asking where he got this strange fellow from.
“Senior brother is not a human, but a beast.” A big beast that has gone through hundreds of flowers, how dare you say that you have human rights?
“Hey, don’t make trouble.” Feng Tingye patted Xia Yuqing’s head, signalling her to stop.
Xia Yuqing made a face at Su Wuduan, but obediently stopped there. She stopped teasing Su Wuduan.
Okay, let’s show mercy for the sake of the Ultra Seme Lord and let you go.
Xia Mingyuan looked at Xia Yuqing’s obedient look like a cat that had been tamed. His eyes almost popped out. Turning his head, he looked at Liu Yixiang next to him and became more envious and hateful towards Feng Tingye. If his wife could be like that girl…
“What do you want?” As soon as Liu Yixiang turned her head, she saw someone looking at her with a wretched expression, so her eyes slightly narrowed. She raised her hand to pinch Xia Mingyuan’s waist hard…
“Oh, you ridiculous woman, be gentle. Your husband’s waist is related to your happiness for the rest of your life, you can’t just pinch it.”
“…” Xia Yuqing glanced at her eldest royal brother. She sighed in her heart. See, eldest royal brother, you are still like this…courting disaster.
Sure enough, as soon as Xia Mingyuan said this, Liu Yixiang’s anger turned into another pinch in response to him. With her strength, I am afraid there will be a big bruise later.
Feng Tingye smiled and watched Xia Mingyuan’s tragic situation, then looked at him provocatively as a victor: “Xiang Er, this is Xu Lao’s long-lost son. He is also your Qing Jiejie’s senior brother.”
“Xu Lao’s son? Qing Jiejie’s senior brother?”
“Yes, that’s me. I’m the legendary… Aow… wife, why are you hitting me again?” Su Wuduan just heard Feng Tingye’s introduction and resurrected. The man stood up and adjusted his clothes and hairstyle. Just as he wanted to start his opening remarks, Cui Er gave him a merciless slap.
“What the h**l is going on? When did Xu Lao have an extra son? How come I didn’t know at all?” Feng Tingye’s words didn’t make Liu Yixiang understand, on the contrary, she was even more puzzled.
Feng Tingye’s lips twitched, he calmly said: “It’s a long story, but it’s not important, so let’s move on. You just need to know that he is the son of Xu Lao and he is your Qing Jiejie’s senior brother.”
With a “crack”, the just resurrected, not far away, Su Wuduan was petrified again. He abruptly shattered into two halves from the middle. Not important…not important……he is not important…
Xia Yuqing looked at the grief-stricken back of Su Wuduan, then looked at Feng Tingye with bright eyes. As expected, the Ultra Seme Lord is the most powerful. With such a short sentence, he made it so her senior brother couldn’t lift his head up anymore.
Feng Tingye felt good with Xia Yuqing’s admiring eyes on him, he couldn’t help but stretch his paw on Xia Yuqing’s head again and pat it.
This scene fell in the eyes of others, it was the harmony of a loving husband and wife. The bright shining picture of affection caught everyone off guard and blinded them. Those who show pda should all die!
“Ahem…” Liu Yixiang coughed slightly to break the shining picture between the two, and said in a low voice, “Although I have not seen this picture for a long time and truly miss it, but I still have to take into account the feelings of other people. Royal Cousin and Qing Jiejie, you guys should also hold back a bit…”
“…” Before the words fell, she received a look of displeasure from a certain animal. Liu Yixiang choked, her heart was extremely hurt. Royal cousin still only has eyes for Qing Jiejie. He’s not even nice to the opposite sex and she’s pregnant too!
“Um… your Majesty and royal sister must be exhausted from the road. Everyone should have a good rest tonight. Let’s talk about things tomorrow.” Xia Mingyuan saw Feng Tingye’s face being unkind and hurriedly stepped forward to protect Liu Yixiang. He changed the subject with a dry smile.
“Are you tired?” Feng Tingye lowered his head first when he heard these words and asked Xia Yuqing, who was still hanging onto his hand.
“Then let’s rest.”
“…” What about our opinion? This is Leng Ruofeng and the others who have not been able to insert half a sentence from beginning to end.
“…” Royal cousin’s method is getting more and more extreme, at least hold back in public places! This is Liu Yixiang, who can’t bear to look directly with a bitter face.
“…” Hey, why are we all people, but the difference is so big? This is Xia Mingyuan who continues to admire the couple with jealousy and hatred, feeling infinitely emotional.
After Xia Yuqing’s torture, the night gradually fell upon them.
Leng Ruofeng and He Wenzhong were arranged in the west wing. Cui Er and Li Yuan lived in the east wing, so the beast that was ready to attack at any time naturally followed them to the east wing. While Xia Yuqing and Feng Tingye…
“Tonight, Qing Jiejie and I are going to sleep together.” Liu Yixiang held a new blanket and followed Xia Yuqing to the door of the bedroom.
“Yes, yes, I have a lot to say to Xiang Er. So tonight we are going to sleep together!” Xia Yuqing unconditionally expressed support.
“…Then what shall we do?” asked the two beasts who were planning to have their wives in their arms tonight, with blue veins on their heads and gritted teeth.
“Who cares about you guys, you two sleep together!” Xia Yuqing and Liu Yixiang said in unison. They then enthusiastically slammed the door on them.
With a bang, the two wooden doors were cruelly closed in front of the two beasts. If they were slightly closer, it would have crushed their noses.
“Haha, I haven’t seen you for a few months and Xiang Er’s temper is still just as strong! The eldest prince must have contributed a lot.” Feng Tingye gave him a hidden look. See my wife knows etiquette, while Xiang Er is spoiled by you!
Faced with Feng Tingye’s provocation, Xia Mingyuan smiled, “The prince consort has just gotten pregnant recently, it is inevitable that her mind is impetuous and her temper is a little bit more fierce. But royal sister… was such a cute and lovable child before, now she dares to slam the door in front of His Majesty and her royal brother, presumably the emperor must have contributed to that.”
Crackling, two wife slaves were reluctant to take action against their own wife, so they turned to retaliate against each other. Staring at each other in front of this small door, smoke was everywhere.
“Heh, what did they say just now? We should stay in the same room tonight?” Xia Mingyuan thought of the last words the two girls said, and gritted his teeth again.
Feng Tingye raised his eyebrows and sneered: “Could it be that the eldest prince’s mansion is only this big, there are no extra rooms?”
“There are quite a few rooms, but…” Xia Mingyuan moved his gaze to the room where Xia Yuqing and Liu Yixiang went in. There was a room on the other side, but there was only one room adjacent to this room.
Feng Tingye obviously noticed and smiled with his eyes slightly squinted: “Well, don’t mind if I do.”
“Wait, why?” Xia Mingyuan quickly stepped forward to block Feng Tingye’s path, giving him a murderous glare.
“Your Royal Highness, I am a guest. Is this your way of hospitality?” Feng Tingye’s face sank, it was stained with displeasure.
“Have you never heard of the saying, the guest should comply for the host’s convenience. Since you are here as a guest, you should follow the host’s arrangement. This place… is better left to the host. This prince will arrange another scenic, beautiful and comfortable wing for you.”
Feng Tingye sneered, a hint of danger appeared on his face: “What if I insist on this room?”
There was a crackling—the two began to glare at each other again. Only this time, the battlefield moved from in front of Xia Yuqing’s room to the room next to Xia Yuqing’s room…
The two of them had only one thought at the moment. They would never share the same room with the person in front of them, but they definitely must take this one room!
Just as the atmosphere between the two was about to drop below zero, when the battle of the glares was turning into a real battle, the old housekeeper who had been following them finally couldn’t help but cough slightly.
“That… Your Royal Highness and also this distinguished guest…”
“Huh?” The two sharp-knife like stare cut towards the old butler. The scared old butler’s hairs pierced up. He immediately broke out into a cold sweat, but still earnestly finished speaking. “Actually, there is a courtyard behind the consort’s bedroom. The two wing rooms in the courtyard are facing the front and rear windows of this bedroom. They are a little smaller than the inner bedroom in the courtyard. But if your Royal Highness and this mister doesn’t mind…”
“What’s wrong with a small room, it’s not like two people will stay in there. This highness will take the left side.”
Feng Tingye looked at him and sneered: “I want the room to the right.”
Finished, they glanced at each other, humphed coldly, and walked to the rooms.
“…” The old housekeeper watched the two leave with a sorrowful face. He then silently reached out and wiped the cold sweat off his forehead.
How come superiors these days are becoming more and more like children. Their Highness was fine since he grew up watching him. However, this young man from first glance doesn’t seem to be a benevolent person and being able to talk to his Highness in that manner without being dragged away, he must be a very important character! But what is with his childlike character? It’s just a room, isn’t it? Even if you can’t bear to be separated from your own wife all night, you don’t have to be so reluctant to get the room next door! Sigh, young people nowadays!
In fact, the old butler was really wrong, it really wasn’t just a question of the room.
When night fell completely, in the bedroom of the eldest Prince of Xia, the whole room was as bright as day due to the shining of the night pearl on the bedside.
At this moment, Xia Yuqing was staring at the night pearl while… uh, drooling.
Such a big night pearl, if it was sold, it will surely be able to sell at a good price. The money in exchange can be used to buy a lot of delicious foods that she has never eaten before. There would be no need to worry about eating too much or eating up all the travelling expenses. Oh, ho ho ho ho….
Thinking like this, it was as if she could already see numerous roast chickens, pastries, soups circulating in front of her. They were all just constantly waving their little wings at her. Finally, she couldn’t help but giggle scaring Liu Yixiang who was on the bedside preparing to go to bed.
“Qing Jiejie, what are you looking at? Why are you so happy?”
“Nothing, nothing…” Xia Yuqing returned to her senses and hurriedly wiped the corners of her mouth clean. She turned to look at Liu Yixiang.
“Really?” Liu Yixing glanced suspiciously at Xia Yuqing.
Xia Yuqing smiled: “I just saw how pretty your night pearl is…”
“It looks very valuable…”
“…and what else?”
“It must be able to sell for a lot of money…”
“What do you want so much money for?” Liu Yixiang’s mouth twitched. Could it be that Qing Jiejie was planning to flee privately with the money and abandon her royal cousin?
“If you have money, you can buy something to eat!” Xia Yuqing said naturally.
With a “pu”, there was a muffled sound from the next door, which frightened Xia Yuqing, “What was that sound?”
Liu Yixiang thought for a moment: “Maybe the fish in the pond turned over.”
“Fish in the pond? But I clearly heard the sound coming from next door?”
“Uh… the pond is next door, thus the sound of the fish turning over is naturally coming from next door.”
“Oh…” Xia Yuqing nodded her head as if she understood, but still felt something was wrong, “Wasn’t the pond across from us, why is it next door now?”
“…Uh, I just said the wrong thing, there is a pond on the opposite side of the door.” Liu Yixiang’s smile stiffened slightly as she hurriedly remedied the situation.
According to Liu Yixiang’s understanding, next door was either her royal cousin or the weak chicken. Most likely, both of them were next door. It’s okay if it’s just the weak chicken, but if it’s her royal cousin…
This time Liu Yixiang really blamed the two wrongly. At the moment, the two people who were living in the opposite corner were listening and also guessing who could be next door.
“Is it your people?” Suddenly hearing a sound transmitted through the air, Xia Mingyuan was startled before realizing that it was an airborne sound transmitted from next door.
“It should be, but it was not this prince’s wish. It should be someone else taking matters into their own hand.”
As Xia Mingyuan expected, the man next door was indeed from the palace, it was even an old acquaintance. This person has been helping him manage the mansion since Xia Mingyuan went out of the palace to build his own place. It was the former butler of Xia Mingyuan’s mother and the current housekeeper of their mansion.
The old butler supported his twisted old waist and carefully climbed up from the ground. In his heart, he was thinking about the newcomer. So this girl who was dressed in glamorous clothes is actually a poor girl? Even food and clothing are a problem? No wonder she is so thin and small. It is really pitiful. In the future, I have to order the kitchen to make more food for them, at least to allow them to eat their fill in this house.
The old housekeeper at this time didn’t know that it was because of his little compassion that would cause the food deficit in the entire mansion. Even food and clothing would become a problem!
Of course, this is something that will happen later. At this moment, he continued to pretend to be a gecko sticking to the wall, eavesdropping on the movement inside. His posture was absolutely comparable to a 007 agent.
