Chapter 126 The tragedy of the green hat (Midnight)
“Hey, what’s going on? It suddenly became so quiet. Could it be…the throwing of the Xiu Qiu is over?” In the private room on the second floor of the inn, Liu Yixiang was a little confused when she heard the sudden silence in the direction of the event, not far away.
“Run quickly!!!” Liu Yixiang didn’t figure out the situation yet. When she peeked out from the window above the inn, she saw Xia Yuqing’s group being chased by a scourge of people and was rushing over quickly.
Liu Yixiang was startled. She hurriedly waved at them, motioning them to come to her.
“Xiang Er is over there. Go and hide first. Hurry up.” Xia Yuqing clutched her hat that was crooked from running. As soon as she raised her head, she saw Liu Yixiang beckoning to herself and was overjoyed.
Li Yuan and He Wenzhong hurriedly opened the door to the room and greeted them. Liu Yixiang stepped up nervously: “What’s the matter? Why are you guys in such a sorry state? Are you injured?”
“We’re okay.” Xia Yuqing waved her hand, trying to catch her breath. She ran to the edge of the window not far away and carefully observed the movement outside.
A little while later, they came to hear the sound of footsteps outside. A group of people were screaming:. “Hurry, hurry, I just saw them run to this side.”
“Hey, they suddenly disappeared!”
“They can’t have gotten far. Let’s split up the search. You go over there, you guys follow me, hurry!”
Watching the group of people leave, Xia Yuqing was completely relieved and fell to the ground: “Oh, I’m so exhausted. This group of people, I don’t believe they chased us for several blocks and still won’t give up!”
Liu Yixiang hurriedly went up to help her upon seeing this. She frowned as she looked at the back of the group of people leaving: “Those people look like they are the servants of some big family.”
“It’s from Xiang Ye’s Mansion.”
“Xiang Ye? Isn’t that the one who threw the Xiu Qiu today? Qing Jiejie, what did you do to make Xiang Ye dispatch people from the mansion to arrest you? Is it possible… that you really snatched the Xiu Qiu back and ran away?” Thinking that Xia Yuqing may have actually received the Xiu Qiu, Liu Yixiang felt her heart turn cold. She will be killed by her cousin!
“No, we didn’t receive the Xiu Qiu.”
“We just took the Xiu Qiu as a soccer ball and kicked it for a while.”
Liu Yixiang was stunned, turning her head to look inquiringly at the two following Xia Yuqing.
Seeing this, Cui Er walked out with a faint smile. She briefly explained what had just happened.
After listening, Liu Yixiang was stunned for a long time before saying: “That is to say, the person who won the Xiu Qiu, the grand prize, is fifth royal prince?”
“Yes.” Xia Yuqing gloated. “Xiang Er, you don’t know, but do you remember how amazing Xiang Ye’s daughter was made out to be? Well when she heard someone received the Xiu Qiu, she got so excited, she ran out. As a result, everyone was scared off by her face. It was even more terrifying than Huo Feiyan, that waist… I think the fifth prince might be crushed to death by it when they consummate their marriage. Hahahaha, no, no, I’m going to die laughing. That Qian Jin* is really a thousand catties.”
* directly translated = thousand gold; how people refer to a precious daughter
“Huo Feiyan? You saw Huo Feiyan?” Although Liu Yixiang was gloating a little, she paid attention to the other person mentioned in Xia Yuqing’s words.
“Um…” Xia Yuqing suddenly remembered that when she met Huo Feiyan in the capital, Liu Yixiang was no longer in Ye Kingdom.
“Miss Liu also knows Huo Feiyan?”
“Well, I have heard of her from my father before. That Huo Feiyan is the granddaughter of Duke Lu. When Duke Lu was still an official, he served as the supervisor of Qintian. Not long after he was promoted, QinTian jian reported that his granddaughter, Huo Feiyan, had a special eight-character fortune. She would be rich and noble, and likely empress. However, the emperor at that time, didn’t believe it and thought it was a scheme by Duke Lu. So, he simply appointed a fief to him. He promoted him publicly, but secretly demoted him, so he had to take his granddaughter away from the capital. Why did they run back to the capital? Did they trouble you Qing Jiejie?”
“It turned out to be like this.” Xia Yuqing suddenly realized. No wonder His Majesty and royal mother were so decisive with their attitude towards Duke Lu and Huo Feiyan. During ancient times, superstitions were heavily believed in, but how was it that when it fell to Huo Feiyan’s head it became such a tragedy? It turned out that there is this kind of cause and effect.
After listening to Liu Yixiang’s words, Li Yuan couldn’t help but interject: “Ms. Liu, don’t say anything. That Huo Feiyan really bothered Qing Jiejie and tried to display her strength. Later, she suffered a loss, broke down, and was scared back to the fief. I heard that she became crazy now.”
Liu Yixiang was a little angry when she heard that Huo Feiyan gave Xia Yuqing a hard time. But hearing that Huo Feiyan became crazy, she could not help but laugh a little. That’s right. Royal cousin loves the person in front of her so much, how can she be wronged even if it’s just a little. She was just getting upset over nothing.
Before Liu Yixiang’s voice fell, a rush of footsteps could be heard outside, as if they were walking towards them.
Several people couldn’t help but be startled. They turned their heads and looked from the window to see a group of people looking around the inn.
“You guys go over there, you guys go over there, the rest will follow me.”
“These people won’t be coming to look for us right?” Seeing those people go, Xia Yuqing was a little worried.
“Nine out of ten, they are fifth royal prince’s people.” Unexpectedly, Leng Ruofeng spoke out. When he kicked the Xiu Qiu before, he glanced over at the room where Xia Mingqi and the others were in. All these people were there at the time.
“Could it be that fifth royal brother is so embarrassed that he wants to arrest us to punish us?” Xia Yuqing touched her chin, pondering for a moment, “You know, fifth royal brother likes beauties, especially now that he is crooked, cough … he likes to play with men. Now that Xiang Ye’s daughter looks like that… like a different kind of thing, will he break the promise of marriage?”
“Wanting to break the marriage is certain, but even if he wants to reject it, Xiang Ye won’t be willing.”
“What do you mean?” Xia Yuqing looked at Liu Yixiang with curiosity in her eyes.
Liu Yixiang smiled faintly: “If the daughter of the Xiangfu is so unsightly, fifth royal brother will naturally not want to marry her. But those who came to ask for marriage before probably came because they have not seen the truth of the daughter of Xiangfu. Now that they do know what she looks like, Xiang Ye won’t be able to hold another Xiu Qiu throwing event. Even if it is thrown again, no one would be willing to pick it up. So, now that Xiang Ye finally found the opportunity to marry his daughter, how could he give up so easily? Regardless of the process, this Xiu Qiu is now in the arms of the fifth prince. If it comes down to the emperor, it will still be under Xiang Ye’s control and the fifth prince will have to marry even if he says no.”
“So, it’s like this, hahaha. It’s true that the wicked have their own wicked torment. Fifth royal brother have taken advantage of so many men and women for so many years. In the end he had to marry an extremely ugly woman as retribution.”
Several people couldn’t help but smile upon hearing this. This time the incident really exceeded everyone’s expectations, but such a result was not bad. At least the young men and ladies in the capital will no longer need to worry about the fifth prince taking people away casually on the road in the future.
“Those people may come back and forth. It’s not very safe here. Miss Liu is also pregnant, so let’s go back first.” Li Yuan frowned and reminded several people in a low voice, watching the movement outside.
“Well, eh, where’s the third princess? Didn’t she go with you? Why didn’t she come back with you?” Liu Yixiang asked in surprise when she realized that there was a missing person.
Cui Er and Leng Ruofeng glanced at each other and smiled lightly: “Just now it was too crowded, so Nu Bi and the prime minister prioritized protecting Niang Niang and got separated from third royal princess.”
Liu Yixing nodded. Cui Er continued, “The third princess is more familiar with this place than we are, so there should be nothing wrong. Let’s go back first. Maybe the third princess is already waiting at the mansion. Miss Liu and Niang Niang have walked around for the entire day and you should be tired too.”
Liu Yixiang heard Cui Er’s words, and agreed. Xia Muyun grew up here, she should be more familiar than them. Thus, she didn’t think too much and took Xia Yuqing and the others back to the mansion.
“It’s good to go out. It’s not just fun, but there are also delicious food and good shows to watch. My body and mind feels refreshed, hahaha.” As soon as she stepped into Xia Mingyuan’s mansion, Xia Yuqing relaxed. Hands on her hips, she laughed happily.
It’s a pity that it didn’t take long for her to be lifted up slowly by a hand waiting for a long time behind her, like a mouse caught by a cat. “Which b**tard dared to pick up this grandma’s collar, don’t you see…” Xia Yuqing turned her head to face someone’s handsome face that seemed to be smiling but not smiling, a knife hidden beneath the smile. Stunned, she said flatly, “Your Ma… Brother, when did you come back?”
“In fact, not too long ago. Just a quarter of an hour before you came back.” Feng Tingye smiled and looked at Xia Yuqing. “What good show did you see today? Each and everyone of you seem so happy, my poor brother.”
“…” The Ultra Seme Lord is clearly smiling, but why did she feel chilly?
“Going out privately without reporting, it seems that your older brother should teach you how to respect your seniors. Come, let’s go back to the room and have a good talk.” Feng Tingye interrupted Xia Yuqing’s unfinished words, smiling brighter and brighter.
“…” Xia Yuqing finally found the crux of the statement. Leng Ruofeng, He Wenzhong, Cui Er, and Li Yuan all went out with her. Senior brother didn’t know where they went and was upset. There was no one in the mansion to report to the Ultra Seme Lord about their whereabouts… Ahhhh, the Ultra Seme Lord is very angry. The consequences are going to be serious!
Ignoring the grievances and panic in Xia Yuqing’s eyes, Feng Tingye hardened his heart to carry Xia Yuqing over to the small courtyard.
On the other side, Liu Yixiang was also entangled with Xia Mingyuan.
“Shrew, how can you run out with imperial sister without telling me?! Do you know how chaotic it is now? You…”
“Look nothing happened.”
“It’s too late if something did happen. You know that my royal sister’s identity is special, what would happen if you guys go out casually? Not only is my royal sister and Feng Tingye in danger, but you are also…”
“So you are worried that I will take Qing Jiejie to go out, get exposed and then incur danger for them? Then you can rest assured that they are also my relatives. Naturally I will not harm them.”
“Shrew, you are being unreasonable. What do you mean worried about them? I am obviously worried about you. Can’t you differentiate my intentions?”
“I don’t know how to differentiate it. It’s obviously you who said Qing Jiejie’s identity is special, and the two of them will be in danger if they are exposed. Isn’t this worrying about them? You are not worried about me at all. ”
“I am, you just interrupted me. ”
“No, I didn’t hear it.”
” …… “
Seeing the confrontation between the two, quarrelling like children, the people around turned around calmly and left to do their own tasks.
Since Xia Yuqing left, Cui Er and Li Yuan naturally followed. This left only Leng Ruofeng and He Wenzhong. When they were about to turn back to the room, they saw Xia Muyun hurriedly walking over from not far away. When she came over, she was taken aback when she saw them.
“It seems that sister-in-law and Gong Zi have returned safely.”
Leng Ruofeng did not answer, but just nodded to Xia Muyun and left with He Wenzhong.
Xia Muyun was startled slightly. She turned her head and glanced at Leng Ruofeng’s far away back, a trace of surprise crossed her eyes.
She thought that if this man saw herself again, even if he was not full of hostility to herself, he would question her behavior today for the Xiu Qiu. She never thought that when they met again, the man would not mention it, not even a question.
This man may be more interesting than she thought. The corners of Xia Muyun’s lips lifted slightly, a trace of interest that a hunter has when hunting prey flicked across her eyes. Then she drew back her gaze neatly and turned away.
Xia Yuqing didn’t know that the life-long affairs of the iceberg Prime Minister had begun to sprout unknowingly. At this moment, she was busy resisting someone’s sneak attack.
“Wait…wait, Your Majesty, Chen Qie can explain this matter. Cui Er originally wanted Prime Minister Leng to tell Your Majesty, but… but they were worried and went out with us so…
“Tell Zhen? What were my instructions to Ai Fei when I was leaving the house?” Feng Tingye’s phoenix eyes were slightly raised, the corner of his eyes flashed with danger.
The dull hair on Xia Yuqing’s head trembled. She replied with a guilty face: “For Ai Fei to stay in the mansion and wait for Your Majesty to come back.”
“…” As a result, she ran away with Xiang Er! Hey, she originally thought she could come back earlier, before the Ultra Seme Lord returned to the house. Then when the time came, she would tell Cui Er and the rest not to say anything. If she also didn’t speak about it, no one would know. In the end, she didn’t expect to encounter a Xiu Qiu event, and then… and then she couldn’t bear the temptation, so she ran to watch the excitement.
A quarter of an hour, just a quarter of an hour! God wants to kill her!
“It seems that Zhen has not disciplined Ai Fei enough. At this time, still daring to run amuck?” Feng Tingye stared at Xia Yuqing’s expression, the chill in his eyes became worse. Even his voice became a little gloomy.
“!!!” Xia Yuqing raised her head to face the black energy billowing behind Feng Tingye. Startled, she tried to shrink into the corner with her hands and feet, but Feng Tingye made the first move and grabbed her ankle with ease. He dragged her back and pushed her down on the bed.
While struggling, Xia Yuqing suddenly felt something hurting her waist. After thinking about it, her eyes lit up suddenly.
“Wait a minute, wait a minute!”
Feng Tingye stopped and raised his eyebrows: “What else does Ai Fei want to say?”
Xia Yuqing swallowed hard and whispered: “It was wrong of Chen Qie to go out without permission. However, due to this being the first offense by Chen Qie, can Your Majesty be lighter in the punishment? Chen Qie will definitely not commit the crime again next time. Moreover, Chen Qie did not just go out for fun, but also brought a gift back for Your Majesty.”
Feng Tingye didn’t feel anything at first, but he was stunned when he heard Xia Yuqing had brought a present for himself. A lot of the chill on his face due to worry and anxiety dissipated. The corners of his lips wanted to lift up, but they restrained themselves. Trying to maintain a tight face, the smile in his eyes obviously betrayed him.
This is the first time Xia Yuqing has given him a gift! Feng Tingye only felt that his heart was stabbed by something. Something warm was leaking out and warming him up.
As the only crown prince of the Ye Kingdom and the future monarch, Feng Tingye had never lacked anything since he was a child. Gold, silver, wealth, fame, fortune and power, as long as he wanted it, there was nothing he couldn’t get. Because it was so easy to get things, over time he forgot what it was like to look forward to something… until he met Xia Yuqing.
Feng Tingye’s first appearance of anticipation was looking at Xia Yuqing’s face. He looked forward to the kind of interesting experiences this woman who he can see the face of will bring him. The second time was when he learned that Xia Yuqing was pregnant. He was in anticipation for the children Xia Yuqing would give birth to. Now it was the third time. He was suddenly anticipating the gift Xia Yuqing would give him for the first time. What kind of extraordinary gift could it be?
In fact, this gift really is extraordinary.
Xia Yuqing saw Feng Tingye’s expression gradually calming down after listening to her own words, so she continued to work hard. She took out the gift folded by herself and carefully concealed at her waist. She handed it to Feng Tingye who had an inviting expression on.
Kacha… Feng Tingye stared at what Xia Yuqing handed over. He could clearly hear the string called rationally in his mind break.
The smile on his face was completely frozen. His face was distorted for a moment before he asked with great difficulty: “Ai Fei, is this the gift you want to give me?”
A green hat? His Ai Fei actually gave him a green hat? Hahahaha, is he crazy or is this world crazy? His empress gave him a green hat*… a green hat, a green hat, a green hat…
* reminder giving someone a green hat means they are cheating on you
Feng Tingye only felt his eyes were black. He almost passed out, not being able to swallow this breath down.
Xia Yuqing didn’t realize her gift had caused Feng Tingye to almost vomit a mouthful of blood. She raised her head innocently and asked, “Your Majesty, don’t you like this hat chosen by your Chen Qie?”
“…” What men would like their wife to buy themselves a green hat! ! ! Wearing a green hat, does she think that a man with a green hat is normal? !
Feng Tingye took a deep breath before trying his best to suppress the murderous aura that wanted to break out of his body. He smiled sadly: “Ai Fei’s hat is really good, but this color is a bit too…”
“Oh, this color isn’t good? Doesn’t Your Majesty like this color?” Xia Yuqing tilted her head innocently.
“…” This color is not good at all, which b**tard told you that I like this color? I will put him to death! ! !
“Who told Ai Fei that I like this…color?”
“Huh, it isn’t your favourite colour? I asked Prime Minister Leng. Didn’t you grow up together? I asked him to point out the colors that Your Majesty likes, then…”
“… Ruofeng?” Feng Tingye was stunned. Then as if he understood something, he straightened up and rubbed his forehead in a dumbfounded manner, with a complex expression on his face that he didn’t know what to say.
“Your Majesty?” Xia Yuqing tentatively called Feng Tingye, “Do you like this gift?”
“…I like it, of course.” Feng Tingye gritted his teeth and replied. Afterwards…
“Your Majesty, what are you doing?” Suddenly she was thrown down again. Didn’t he like it? Why is he pressing down on her again? Please let me go! ! !
“I am very touched that Ai Fei did not forget to choose a gift for me when Ai Fei went out. In order to repay Ai Fei’s sincerity to me, I decided to come and do some love-making things with Ai Fei now.”
“…” So she once again lifted a rock and smashed herself in the foot. Ultra Seme Lord, stop playing with people, help! Yamete!!
So, a certain animal that was stimulated by the little green hat spent a whole night using his body to tell Xia Yuqing that he could satisfy someone, and that someone didn’t have the need to cuckold him.
As for the little green hat that caused the incident? It had fallen to the ground as early as when the two began rolling around the sheets. Alone in the cold wind, the green hat trembled coldly.
