Chapter 164 You want to marry me, but I won’t marry
Not long after Xia Muyun left, Feng Tingye used the roster that was taken from Ying Chun Yuan to once again cause a bloodbath in court. Most of the officials who had stepped into Ying Chun Yuan were sent to prison for colluding with foreign enemies. Most of the charges of collaborating with the enemy and betraying the country fell on important ministers that had served two dynasties. With physical evidence, these veterans of civil and military affairs who used to be their seniors were sentenced to death without even having a chance to retort.
In the same way how Feng Tingye drastically rectified the court with Prince Rui’s case, this event once again brought bloodshed to the court. So far, nearly 90% of the people in the court have changed into Feng Tingye’s cronies. Feng Tingye’s status once again rose a step higher. No one could shake it.
However, the person who really shocked the people of the Ye Kingdom was not their Emperor, but the Emperor’s “good helper”, their Empress.
Rumors had it that the Empress and Emperor were deeply in love. Comparable to men in terms of ability, in order to solve the problems for the Emperor, the Empress had penetrated deep into the brothel and arrested those spies lurking in the territory of Ye who were waiting to harm this country…..
Rumors had it that after entering the brothel, the Empress was very brave. She was not afraid of the hostile gangsters at all. Not only did she fight with her wits, but she was able to courageously and cleverly issue a signal, allowing the Emperor to wipe out the hostile gangsters…
Rumors had it that the Empress was skilled in both civil and martial arts and that she was the most worthy companion for the Emperor. In the brothel, she had combined her skills with the Emperor’s. With the two swords, they killed the leader of Yingchun Yuan in one fell swoop. She also did not make any attempt to claim credit for these amazing achievements….
Rumors… It was a bunch of rumors again…
Where did these mysterious rumors come from? Were they real or fake?
Let me tell you, these things were all personally stated by the Grand Tutor and who doesn’t know who he is? He was the Emperor’s right hand man! Can the words he stated be false? The people in the vicinity of the brothel that day heard it all clearly, the goods were genuine!
As a result, Xia Yuqing, due to a freak combination of factors, was once again the most talked about post-dinner conversation among the people.
However, Xia Yuqing didn’t have the leisurely time to be happy about this. At this moment, she was at a loss. The reason being, Xia Muyun’s absence.
Yun Xi had finally come back, but Xia Muyun left.
“Oh…” Xia Yuqing stared at the pile of delicious food in front of her. It was hard to come by a time where she had lost her appetite. She laid her cheek in her hand: “Sigh…”
“… Niang Niang, is this meal not to your taste?” Lu Rui asked with some worry, looking at Xia Yuqing’s frowning face.
It’s strange! All the things on the table were things that Niang Niang likes to eat the most usually. What’s wrong with her today? She didn’t touch anything when she sat down!
“I’m not in the mood to eat.”
“…Niang Niang is in a bad mood? Who made Niang Niang angry?” Lu Rui was stunned, and began to think about who had offended Niang Niang in the past few days.
“Lu Rui, why do you think Third Royal Sister had to leave?”
Lu Rui suddenly realized what was going on: “Is Niang Niang sad that the Third Princess had to leave?”
“I originally thought that the Prime Minister would succeed this time and Third Royal Sister wouldn’t have to go. If Third Royal Sister didn’t leave, they would be able to come to fruition and after….”
“After?” After it comes to fruition, what else is there?
“After that, I will be able to have wedding wine.”
“Pu…” Lu Rui was scared by Xia Yuqing’s words. She stared at Xia Yuqing in a daze, “Niang Niang, you are sad that the Third Princess returned to her country, just because of… the purpose of drinking wedding wine?”
“Yes, anyways, if the two of them come to fruition, then I have also contributed. It shouldn’t be too much to have a glass. Too bad…”
Xia Yuqing originally wanted to drink wedding wine from Yan Ran and Li Yuan. But now Li Yuan’s attitude towards Yan Ran was just lukewarm. It is estimated that it will take a while to drink their wedding wine, so she changed her goal and turned her eyes on Xia Muyun and the others. Yet, with one kick, Xia Muyun ran away, tears falling~
“…” Niang Niang, if the Third Princess knew the truth, she would cry!
“Mother, I think what you really want to do is not drink wedding wine, but to make trouble in the bridal chamber.” Lu Rui was speechless, when she heard a crisp childish voice. She immediately became petrified.
“Brother, what is a bridal chamber?” Second baby on the side bit her small spoon and asked innocently.
“A bridal chamber is…”
“Stop talking. What does a little child like you think about all day long? Who taught you these things? You’re going to lead your sister astray!” Xia Yuqing hurriedly yelled, stopping Big Baby from poisoning Second Baby.
Sternly rebuked, unexpectedly, Eldest Baby didn’t have blame in his eyes. He chuckled: “Did Mother forget? You clearly taught me these things. Not only that, you and Father often show us the bridal chamber.”
“……” When did this brat become so articulate? Is this the kind of remarks a child over a year old can say? This doesn’t make sense!
“Oh, I see, the bridal chamber is a game that Mother and Father often play at night. Father will press Mother down, and then Mother…”
“How do you know?” This kind of thing, her family’s pure, cute little bun knows? Could it be…
“Don’t look at your son, Mother. This son hasn’t said anything to Sister. It’s just Sister who overheard it. Whose fault is it that you and Father scream so loudly every night when you play games. It would be strange if we didn’t hear it.”
“…” F*ck, this ancient soundproofing is really unreliable. It allows children to hear R rated things at such a young age, god, I’m guilty!
After exposing this kind of thing to her Second Baby, how can she face her two children in the future? What about the lofty queen image that she had in the hearts of these two babies! Moreover, game your sister, if she heard it right, Big Baby was laughing at herself, right? ! As a Mother, she was laughed at by her son who was under two years old. Someone just beat me to death!
Eldest baby looked at Xia Yuqing’s flushed face covering his Sister’s mouth. He narrowed his eyes. He stepped forward and pulled Xia Yuqing’s hand covering Second Baby’s mouth, and said coldly: “Mother, you’re hurting Sister.”
Xia Yuqing was taken aback. She hurriedly took her hand from Second Baby’s mouth. Looking at Second Baby’s red eyes, she felt distressed: “Oh, Dundun, I’m sorry. Just now, your Mother was in a hurry and hurt you, right? Does it hurt? Does it hurt anywhere?”
Second Baby looked at Xia Yuqing with tears. She silently moved to Big Baby’s side: “Mother was terrible just now, Mother pinched baby, oooooooo…”
“!” Xia Yuqing looked at Second Baby who was crying because of herself and became more and more guilty.
The root of everything – Big Baby enjoyed his sister’s embrace. Touching his sister’s head, he cast a provocative look at Xia Yuqing.
“…” This hateful brat was not born from herself, she definitely did not give birth to him! Xia Yuqing gritted her teeth and thought.
As a result, in order to coax Second Baby who was accidentally injured by herself, Xia Yuqing had to temporarily leave her gloomy mood to the side. Holding Second Baby’s favorite snacks and gruel for a long time, she finally convinced Second Baby to become happy again, allowing her to hold Second Baby again.
Big Baby sneered at Xia Yuqing’s use of delicious food to buy off his younger sister, but seeing his sister’s silly smiling face, he didn’t want to put a stop to it.
While biting the small soup spoon, he saw something bright yellow coming, not far away from the corner of his eyes. His eyes brightened. I know!
“Mother, if you have the leisure to take care of other people’s affairs, it’s better to take care of yourself.”
Xia Yuqing was startled. She turned to look at Eldest Baby in surprise, wondering why the child spoke exactly like the Ultra Seme Lord. He was an exact replica.
“I didn’t do anything weird, why do I need to take care of myself?”
The corner of the baby’s mouth turned into a faint arc: “Mother, I heard that the people outside now are praising the wiseness of Mother. Something about how you alone infiltrated the enemy’s camp, and how Mother does not concede to men.”
“Hey, those are all lies made by the Grand Tutor, you and I were clearly kidnapped, don’t you know this? Why are you bringing that up to make fun of your Mother?”
“Er Chen didn’t mean to make fun of Mother. Of course, Er Chen knows that those news are fake, but there were some things that Er Chen saw with his own eyes that were authentic.”
“What things?” Xia Yuqing looked at Eldest Baby confusedly. Feeling that there was something in the child’s words, she had a bad premonition.
“Does Mother still remember that night? In Ying Chun Yuan, Er Chen was hiding under the table, then boss Chen…”
“Eldest baby stop talking!” Xia Yuqing’s face changed drastically and she shouted at the baby, wishing to step forward to cover Big Baby’s mouth.
But Big Baby was not Second Baby, how could he let her cover his mouth. He grimaced: “Don’t call me Eldest Baby, that name is terrible.”
“…Well, if it’s not Eldest Baby, then Dudu, don’t tell your Father about this.”
“It’s too late.”
“What?” Xia Yuqing’s eyes widened. When she saw Big Baby pointing behind her, the bad premonition grew stronger. She turned around stiffly, to face…
“Ahahaha, Your Majesty, when did you come? Why was there no sound at all?”
Feng Tingye laughed causing Xia Yuqing’s hair to stand up tall: “Not sooner or later, just when Ai Fei and our son were discussing Ying Chun Yuan. Now, should Ai Fei tell me about that so-called Boss Chen?”
“Boss Chen? Ahahaha, was there such a person? How could I forget? Your Majesty, don’t listen to a child’s nonsense, there is no such person.” Xia Yuqing stepped back two steps with a guilty conscience.
Feng Tingye narrowed his phoenix eyes and smiled lightly: “Oh? Really?” Then he moved his gaze to Big Baby not far away.
Big Baby spread his hands and said innocently: “Boss Chen was a bad old man. Oh, yes, he was the first guest picked up by Mother.”
“!” Eldest Baby, you traitor! Xia Yuqing silently covered her face, trying to murder Big Baby who betrayed her with a condemning gaze between her fingers.
Eldest Baby completely regarded Xia Yuqing’s grief and indignation as nothing, and continued to break the news: “Moreover, it’s not just that Mr. Xie, but this Boss Chen also touched Mother’s waist. He also wanted Mother to pour him wine and help him drink. Something like that.” It’s better to have screwed up herself, now she may be better off just dying.
“Oh, Chen Qie is full. Since Your Majesty just came over, Your Majesty must not have ate. Chen Qie will not disturb Your Majesty.” Xia Yuqing keenly felt the changes in the surrounding atmosphere. She added oil to her feet, and wanted to slip away, but before taking two steps, she was grabbed by the collar.
“Ai Fei is full? That’s perfect, we can settle the bill when we are full. Let’s go back to the room.”
“Your Majesty…Your Majesty…the sky is just getting dark now!”
“It’s okay, we can slowly calculate everything.”
“…” Yamete! Xia Yuqing was carried away like a hen carrying a chick. Before leaving, she handed a condemning look at Big Baby.
Eldest Baby acted as if he didn’t see it. Who asked his Mother to take advantage of his Father tossing him around to send his younger sister to sleep with someone else! Although Auntie Xiao Longbao looks cute, his younger sister is even more cute. So, it is unforgivable. She asked for this!
“Brother, what happened to Father and Mother? Are they not eating?” Second Baby opened her pair of big watery eyes. Biting the small spoon, she looked at Big Baby innocently.
“Well, they are busy playing games and won’t eat anymore. Baby eat quickly, brother will go out to play games with you later.”
“…” The crowd on the side was completely stunned. Your Royal Highness, is it really good for you to be so mature? !
The night gradually fell, and this night, Xiefang Hall was destined to be a sleepless night. At the same time, in a hidden inn inside the palace, some people began to move slowly.
“Third Royal Sister has left Ye Kingdom?” Inside the low-hanging gauze tent, a weak voice from a young man rang out, shocking everyone outside.
“Reporting to Your Highness, the Third Princess has left the capital of Ye Kingdom a few days ago. She should be on her way back.”
“It seems that Mother can’t bear it after all.” The boy’s magnetic voice was stained with a smile. Then, he swiftly changed the conversation, “Notify the few people in the country to make their move. Make sure they accompany my Eldest Royal Brother in having a good time.”
“Yes, Your Highness…we now…”
“Hold back the soldiers and wait for this prince to take care of his injuries first.”
The evening breeze slipped in from the window and blew the thin curtain, faintly revealing a pale face. It was Xie Gong Zi who appeared at the brothel that day. At the same time, he was the Fourth Prince of Xia Kingdom – Xia Mingxuan.
“Feng Tingye…” Xia Mingxuan’s bandaged hand slowly clenched together. Last time he was careless, next time you won’t be so lucky.
Early the next morning, in the imperial study room, as always, the monarch and ministers were gathered together.
“Actually, Your Majesty already knew that Yun Xi would be there that day, right?” Yan Ran asked straightforwardly when he saw Feng Tingye.
The whereabouts of Yun Xi has always been in Feng Tingye’s grasp. It doesn’t make sense for her to appear in the palace that day without Feng Tingye knowing about it. If Feng Tingye hadn’t acquiesced, how could that girl take someone into the palace so grandiosely.
Feng Tingye smiled, but didn’t say a word. However, that was basically him agreeing tacitly.
“…” So when it came to handing the person over to the empress, in fact, you knew from the beginning that the witness was coming soon, this damn black-bellied man!
“Your Majesty, what scheming plan do you have now?” Shao Zitang looked at Feng Tingye’s face that had a smile that wasn’t a smile. He didn’t believe that this man made the girl appear in the capital early for just that one purpose.
“You will know soon.” Feng Tingye smiled, then remained silent.
Several people looked at each other and couldn’t help but mourn for a few seconds for the person the person in front of them was thinking about.
After Yun Xi returned to the palace, Xiefang Hall recovered its activity that hadn’t been seen for a long time, like now…
Xia Yuqing yawned and looked at Yun Xi who was chased by Xiao Bai not far away.
“You darn dog, don’t chase me. Don’t come over, don’t come over!”
“Wowo…” Xiao Long Bao Jiejie, Xiao Bai missed you so much. Xiao Bai missed you so much, don’t run.
“Ah, don’t come here! Qing Jiejie, help, help!” Yun Xi was so scared that tears were about to fall. She panicked and rammed into the arms of a person who was also fleeing in a hurry.
“Ow, it hurts, who hit me?” Yun Xi fell to the ground. She looked up, then her eyes shrank, “Little…little…little Royal uncle!”
