Chapter 169 The Narcisstic Virgo！
“Little Junior Sister? Are you…Third Senior Brother?” Xia Yuqing widened her eyes, staring in disbelief at the young man sitting on the beam who was laughing. Sure enough, speak of the devil and he will appear. After she talked about him with Second Brother a quarter of an hour ago, Third Brother actually appeared!
“Are you Xu Lao’s third apprentice?” Feng Tingye glanced at the row of hidden weapons on the bed and sneered. “This meeting gift is quite unique.”
Hua Nongying looked at the obvious killing intent in Feng Tingye’s eyes. The corners of his lips were slightly hooked: “If I don’t give something as special as this, how could I show off the extraordinariness of myself?”
“…” So in order to show off your extraordinariness, you will launch such a brutal attack on your Little Junior Sister on the first day you meet? !
“Third Brother, can you come down first? You sitting on top of our heads like this, it will give us a sore neck speaking to you.” Xia Yuqing got up and crawled out of the bed and Feng Tingye’s hand. She looked up at Hua Nongying’s fluttering robe and suggested in a low voice.
“No!” Hua Nongying relentlessly rejected Xia Yuqing’s proposal.
“Why?” Xia Yuqing was stunned and Feng Tingye’s face sank, becoming more dangerous.
Is it possible that Third Brother is worried that he will be attacked by the Ultra Seme Lord after he comes down? Is that why you want to keep your distance like this? In case of an accident? The more Xia Yuqing thought about it, the more she felt that this was the case. Just when she wanted to speak to her Third Brother who she met for the first time, she heard the person up above look at the moonlight outside the window: “This noble person has measured it just now. The moonlight, reflective like water, can only completely capture this noble person’s beauty at this angle. Only here, could it make one look more beautiful and unobtrusive. When coupled with this person’s current posture, it is even more seamless, nothing can compare. If I come down, it would be a waste of the hard work of sitting here for an hour without moving.”
“…” Senior Brother, are you an alien from outer space? Why can’t I understand a word of what you are saying?
Feng Tingye raised his head and glanced at Hua Nongying, his face sinking. The hand that did not hold Xia Yuqing slowly stretched out towards the hilt of the sharp sword beside the bed.
Hua Nongying’s eyes became cold. Sensing something, he turned his head to look at Feng Tingye.
“Your Majesty, Third Brother…” Just when Xia Yuqing thought the two might start fighting, the door of the room was kicked open from the outside with a slam.
“Niang Niang, Nu Bi heard you yell…” Cui Er and Li Yuan pushed open the door and shouted, then they met a certain someone on the beam of the room.
“Hi…” Hua Nongying was startled. He turned his head and raised a smile towards the two girls.
“…” Hi, your sister! Third Brother, is it time to say hello now? !
Xia Yuqing was staring stiffly at this strange thing that looked less reliable than her first two Senior Brothers when she heard a shout: “Oh, Third Brother, you unexpectedly appeared! It just so happens that your Second Brother’s hand is a little itchy. Come spar with me.”
Afterwards, everyone saw a blue figure flashing past their eyes. In the next moment they heard a scream comparable to a dolphin: “Yun Zhong Yue, you beast, you dare to hit this noble person’s handsome face. Lets see if this noble person will destroy you this time.”
“Destroy me? Wait until you can catch up with me first.” Yun Zhong Yue took out his nine-section whip, then latching it on the side beam, he used it as a swing to go from one side to the other.
In order to avoid the kick that had just been issued, Hua Nongying’s posture that was maintained for a long time was finally ruined. His body quickly fell, then he lightly grabbed the beam with one hand to flip over, and stepped on it again. Sitting on the beam, he looked at the arrogant back of Yun Zhongyue. His brown eyes sank. With a quick wave of his right hand, everyone heard a somewhat harsh sound. In the next second, a silver light flashed and it accurately entangled Yun Zhongyue’s right ankle.
“Soft…soft steel wire?!” Xia Yuqing exclaimed as she looked at the silver wire that spread from Hua Nongying’s palm to Yun Zhongyue.
The corner of Hua Nong Ying’s lips hooked up and he pulled back the soft wire in his hand, forcibly pulling back Yun Zhongyue that wanted to escape from the room.
“D*mn it!” Yun Zhongyue secretly said a bad word in his heart. The nine-section whip reversed, and as he was pulled back, he drew it towards Hua Nongying’s face fiercely.
“Yun Zhong Yue, I told you that you are not allowed to hit this person’s face, yet you still dare to hit it? You are looking for death!” Hua Nongying was able to avoid the nine-section whip that was drawn and fiercely growled at Yun Zhongyue.
“What if I hit you, you narcissist! A man who looks at his face all the time and acts like a woman, you should feel embarrassed!”
“You dare to say that this person is like a woman? You are obviously jealous of the talents of this person, that’s why you have attacked this handsome face again and again! Also saying this person is like a lady, this person thinks you look like a lady. Look at your small body! Even a slight breeze can blow it away. You are more of a b*tch than an actual b*tch.”
“Say that again!”
“So what if I say that again!”
“…” Can you two be more childish? Xia Yuqing hid her face silently. Thinking that Senior Brother and Second Senior Brother were already enough of a torment, she did not expect that Second Senior Brother and Third Senior Brother would be able to toss her around even more. Why can’t these apprentices get along? !
With a clatter, the silver light continued to flicker around the room. The nine-section whip and the soft steel wire quickly intertwined in front of Xia Yuqing and the others. It mixed together with flying wood chips and…stone chips.
“…” Second Brother, Third Brother, are you planning to demolish this room? ! If you demolished this room, where am I going to sleep tonight!?
“Second…” Xia Yuqing just wanted to stop the two of them when Feng Tingye took her hand first.
“Your Majesty?” Xia Yuqing looked at Feng Tingye suspiciously.
Feng Tingye shook his head towards her. He took her hand and walked outside.
“Wait, Your Majesty, Second Brother and Third Brother…”
“It’s okay, let them fight. It’s too dangerous here, let’s go out to avoid the chaos. The sword has no eyes, it will be no good if Ai Fei gets hurt.”
“But the room….”
“It’s okay, let Xu Lao pay for it.”
“…” Your Majesty, if my Master sees the ruined walls all over, he will become crazy! For sure!
Feng Tingye looked at Xia Yuqing’s awkward expression. He smiled, “Ai Fei, this palace has been in use for a long time, so we should take advantage of this opportunity to renovate it. No one is allowed to help, otherwise… they will pay for it together.”
” …… ” Your Majesty, are you trying to throw my Master into a hole?
“Also have some people go find Master Su and Xu Lao. Let them come and take a good look at the good deeds of their apprentice and junior brother.”
Half an hour later, the movement in the bedroom stopped and two well-dressed people walked out together. They snorted at each other at the same time at the entrance and walked in the opposite direction.
“…” What is this arrogant and awkward way of getting along? Are these two enemies? !
Xia Yuqing was speechless. She cautiously stepped into the entrance of her bedroom. She opened the door and took a look, then… a cold wind rushed towards her face, making her feel inexplicably cold.
“!” D*mn it, is this still her magnificent, noble and luxurious bedroom? It’s just…it’s just a refugee’s den now! Return her warm nest!
“Oh, the destruction was really thorough. It seems that it will not be repaired back to it’s original state for a short period of time. During this period, since Ai Fei will have nowhere to sleep, Ai Fei will move to Qianqing Hall. Wait until the palace is repaired, then move back. What do you think, Ai Fei?”
“!” Can I even come back alive if I move into your wolf den? D*mn it, Ultra Seme Lord, was this your idea from the beginning? I was thinking why you would suddenly change your attitude and be so easy to talk to, even allowing people to indifferently tear the room apart, so it turns out that… it was all for this!
“That, umm, there’s no need to trouble Your Majesty. Chen Qie can squeeze with the children for a few days.” Xia Yuqing looked at Feng Tingye’s face with a slightly calculated smile, then laughed twice before tactfully refusing.
Feng Tingye seemed to have expected Xia Yuqing to say this. He smiled and leaned closer to Xia Yuqing, “I’m afraid it’s a bit crowded for Ai Fei to be with the two children.”
“Not crowded, not crowded at all!” Xia Yuqing froze, then shook her little head vigorously.
“But the children don’t seem to think that way.”
“Huh?” Xia Yuqing looked in the direction Feng Tingye was looking at. She didn’t know when Big Baby had come out.
“Dudu, why did you run out? Weren’t you asleep?”
Big Baby had a black face, displeased: “I was awakened! Also, it’s just right with Er Chen and sister in the same bed. There is no place for Mother to sleep, so Mother should sleep with Father. Don’t compete for space with us in the bed.”
“…” Dudu, don’t act like Mother is the third wheel between you and your sister, okay? Moreover, Mother just wants to borrow your big bed that can have more than ten people rolling on it for a few days, why are you being this stingy? ! Can’t we get along as mother and child? Why are other people’s children cheating their fathers, but her own little beast cheats his mother?!
“Ai Fei, did you hear that?” Feng Tingye asked with a look of malicious intent.
“Um… Even if I can’t sleep with the two children, Chen Qie can still go and squeeze with Lu Rui and the rest for a few nights.” Xia Yuqing was struggling hard.
“Ai Fei, a master and her maids living together seems a bit inappropriate.”
“Chen Qie doesn’t mind, doesn’t mind at all!” Xia Yuqing closed her eyes and shouted loudly.
“Oh, Ai Fei doesn’t mind?” Feng Tingye raised his eyes slightly. He turned his head and glanced at the crowd: “Do you guys mind?”
Everyone felt the cold wind behind them and their bodies became stiff. With a dry smile, they shook their heads vigorously, and said in unison: “Niang Niang is a dignified, noble person, it is not suitable for her to live in the same room as us servants. Niang Niang, please move to Qian Qing palace.”
“…” You traitors! Xia Yuqing angrily looked at the traitors on the opposite side.
The girls looked towards the sky, the earth, the stars and the moon, but didn’t dare to look at Xia Yuqing. Niang Niang, it’s not that Nu Bi doesn’t want to save you, they really did want to save you. However, that would require the sacrifice of all the people in the entire palace. Therefore, Niang Niang, you must take the big picture into consideration and accompany the emperor well. You must know that if you are sacrificed, the people in the entire palace will benefit. How noble is that? Amen…
“Look, Ai Fei, they all said it like so, thus Ai Fei has no reason to reject my proposal. Later, you will help Ai Fei clean up and move to Qianqing Hall.”
“…” Hey, don’t talk to yourself, what about my opinion!?
After the forced auction resolving Xia Yuqing’s accommodation problem, everyone’s attention was moved back to the stranger who suddenly appeared in Xiefang Hall.
“Niang Niang… that person is…” Lu Rui moved to Xia Yuqing’s side and asked curiously.
“My Third Brother. He seems to be a well-known assassin.” Xia Yuqing was startled. Touching her chin, she thought about it. Master seemed to have mentioned that this Third Brother was the number one Assassin House’s Lord.
“The Assassin House Lord?!”
“It seems like it?”
Several girls shouted in unison, looking at Xia Yuqing in surprise.
“But, his appearance doesn’t look like the Lord of the Assassin House.” Lu Rui looked at Hua Nong Ying, who was watching his mirror reflection not far away, with a complicated expression.
Xia Yuqing turned her head and looked around. She saw that the freshly-baked Third Brother of hers at sometime had taken out a bronze mirror, and was looking at it. Up and down, left and right, back and forth, countless times…
“It really is that kid. I heard someone say that youngest brother was here, but I didn’t believe it.” Xia Yuqing was not sure what to say when a voice came from behind her.
“Big Brother, you are here. That… Third Brother, is he…” What’s wrong with him? Why does this man like to look in the mirror so much? !
Su Wuduan seemed to see Xia Yuqing’s entanglement. He coughed lightly: “Little Junior Brother, his Assassin House was inherited from his mother and his mother’s Assassin House consists of only females.”
“Ahem, Third Junior Brother grew up surrounded by a group of women since he was a child, so in addition to his appearance being better than the average man and woman, he developed… this habit.”
“This habit? Liking to look in the mirror?”
“…… ” Junior Sister, you are too naive! After a while, you will know that the horror of this kid is not just as simple as loving to look in the mirror.
“Oh, my clothes have been soiled. It’s…no, I have to return and change clothes, then come back.” Hua Nongying looked in the mirror for a long time before he put away the mirror contentedly. Then when he looked down, he saw a few particles of dust on his clothes, screamed and turned to leave.
“Wait a minute! Third Brother, you just want… to go?” Xia Yuqing stared at Hua Nongying with a stiff face, her small face was a little…distorted.
“It’s okay, Junior Sister, wait for a while. This brother will change clothes outside of the palace and will be back soon.”
“!” Going out of the palace at this time? ! Are you planning to keep all of us from sleeping? Do you want us to wait for you until dawn? Don’t make entering the palace seem so easy, okay? Do you think the palace is your home? Don’t just speak of coming and going!
“Third Brother, it’s just a little dust, you don’t need to go out to change.”
“Little dust? Just that? Just because of such a small piece of dust, a flaw has appeared on the flawless me. Just this thought won’t allow me to calm down. No, I have to change! I have to change!”
“…” F*ck, what kind of obsessive-compulsive disorder is this? Ah, the Third Brother of her family must have the most abnormal snake disease! Flawless…Wait, flawless?
“Third Brother, when were you born?”
“When was I born? July 15th.” Hua Nongying was startled, and glanced at Xia Yuqing suspiciously.
On the fifteenth day of the seventh month of the lunar calendar, the Gregorian calendar should be around the beginning of September, that is to say…
“Why is Little Junior Sister asking this? Could it be that Junior Sister was also bewildered by the beauty of your Senior Brother? Were you preparing… ”
“…” Xia Yuqing looked at Hua Nongying’s smug look, then her heart started to explode. D*mn you narcissist, no, it should be you d*mn Virgo!
“Ahem, Brother, it doesn’t matter if you want to change, but it’s a waste of time to go out of the palace right now, it’s better… Your Majesty…”
Feng Tingye raised his eyebrows as he listened to the conversation between the two, the corners of his lips twitched. Then he yelled: “Someone come here, bring a new outfit for this Gong Zi.”
The little eunuchs in the palace have always been very fast, so in a moment, a new set of clothes was handed to Hua Nong Ying. Hua Nongying rummaged through the clothes before critically saying: “These clothes havn’t been worn by anyone right?”
With a click, the string in Xia Yuqing’s mind named rationality broke completely. She took the clothes and threw them on Hua Nongying’s body: “They are all new clothes. Wear your s*ster. If you don’t want to wear them, please get out of my sight!”
“…” Xia Yuqing’s ferocious appearance startled Hua Nongying. He didn’t dare talk any more nonsense. He grabbed the clothes and rushed to the side screen to change.
Xia Yuqing couldn’t help rolling her eyes to the sky. For a moment, she felt so tired. Why couldn’t she have one or two normal people around herself?
Taking advantage of Hua Nongying’s time to change clothes, Lu Rui and the others hurriedly brought a cup of hot tea to relieve her boredom. As a result, they drank all the tea, but the person… still hadn’t come out.
Just when Xia Yuqing thought that the person had run away while changing clothes, Hua Nongying slowly walked out from behind the screen. He had a mirror in one hand and his other hand on his hips. He spoke with emotion: “What a natural beauty. This noble person, you look good in everything you wear.”
“…” This d*mn flower peacock, he must have been looking in the mirror this entire time! Xia Yuqing had blue veins on her head and the corners of her mouth twitched. She had an urge to go up and bite someone.
“Ahem…” Su Wuduan interrupted Hua Nongying’s self-admiration with a light cough and also rescued him from his potential murderers, “Little Junior Brother, why are you here? Is the assassin house business not busy recently?”
“How could it not be busy? Fortunately, Nongying’s sisters help out, otherwise, if it was only this person, this fresh jade would have died early on.”
“…” Third Brother, the term “Xiang Xiaoyu” is not used like that! (usually used to say a young girl dying young)
“Since you’re so busy, why are you still running around?”
“Big Brother, you’re wrong.” Hua Nongying sat opposite Xia Yuqing and took a sip of the hot tea on the table. “I am here on a mission, not to travel around for an outing.”
“You have a mission? Could it be that you really…came to kill me and the emperor?”
“Pu…” Su Wuduan and Yun Zhong Yue at the same time had the tea in their mouth spray out.
Cui Er, Li Yuan and the others quickly stepped forward to block Xia Yuqing and Feng Tingye. They stared at Hua Nongying with their guards up.
“Don’t be so nervous. If I really wanted to do it, could Junior Sister and the Ye Emperor still sit here unscathed, drinking tea and chatting?”
Feng Tingye’s phoenix eyes were cold. He gazed at Hua Nongying’s eyes with an obvious murderous look.
Hua Nongying didn’t care. He calmly blew the hot tea in his hand: “Moreover, the person who I really want to kill in my mission isn’t little Junior Sister and the emperor.”
“It’s not us? Then who?” Xia Yuqing was startled, and looked at Hua Nongying in surprise.
“It seems to be a girl in your side hall, Junior Sister. Although she is a Ya Tou, she seems to be the crown heir of Shu.”
“You mean Xiao Xi?” Xia Yuqing exclaimed. Originally following Lu Rui and the others, Yun Xi, who walked out to look at the situation, was also startled. She moved a little nervously behind Cui Er.
“It seems to be that name.”
“!” Xia Yuqing stood up from the chair with a cry, “Senior Brother, if you dare to move against Xiao Xi, I’ll… I’ll…”
“Ai Fei, don’t get excited. This…” Feng Tingye held down Xia Yuqing’s hand and glanced at Hua Nongying.
“My surname is Hua, Hua Nongying.”
“…” What a flashy name, it really fits Third Senior Brother’s showy attitude.
“Since Hua Gongzi is sitting in front of us, Zhen thinks that he didn’t think come here for Yun Xi’s life.”
“Huh?” Xia Yuqing looked at Hua Nongying with surprise.
Hua Nong Ying flicked his soft long hair back narcissistically, and smiled: “Junior Brother-in-law is really amazing. That’s right, although the Assassin House took the task, I didn’t have the intention of killing the person, I just wanted to come here to warn Junior Sister.”
“If you’re not planning to kill and just wanted to remind Junior Sister, this kind of trivial matter, just have one of your subordinates complete it. Why did you have to come personally?” Su Wuduan squinted his eyes at Hua Nong Ying.
“Have my subordinates come? Someone must be willing to come first! After the previous few incidents, no one from the assassin house dares to approach the palace of Junior Sister’s. Since there is no other option, under these circumstances, I had to come out personally.”
“…” I’m really sorry to make your assassins so pitiful, really sorry!
“Remind? What does Hua Gongzi have to remind Ai Fei?” Feng Tingye focused his attention on Hua Nongying’s last sentence, and asked with a solemn face.
“Hehe, Your Majesty is on point. Thinking about it, Your Majesty should already know. The group of assassins who ran to your palace the last time were the people of this person’s assassin house.” Hua Nongying narrowed his eyes, “After the mistake on that attack last time, I have suffered from Master’s scolding. This time, hearing that there was another mission for Ye Kingdom’s imperial palace, I advocated taking it for no other reason than because the employer is the same as last time’s. I was checking it for Junior Sister’s safety.”
“Who is it?” Everyone was surprised. They all moved their gazes to Hua Nongying’s body.
“Her Royal Highness, Eldest Princess of Shu.”
“It really is her!” Yun Zhongyue’s expression sank.
“Royal Aunt wants to kill me? Last time too?!” Yun Xi was taken aback. Her eyes widened in disbelief, “How could this happen? How could this happen? Last time… last time, those assassins were originally here to kill me, but…but shouldn’t they be…shouldn’t they have been sent by Third Uncle?”
“It seems that your Third Uncle is just a chess piece being played by someone. For no reason, he took on the blame and became a scapegoat for others. How pitiful. No, even if he was not the mastermind, he was also an important accomplice. He deserved the crime. Ending up where he is now is well deserved. It’s a pity that the real culprit behind the scenes is still at large.”
Feng Tingye’s words made Yun Xi’s face pale. She bit her lower lip and whispered: “Why? Why did Royal Aunt do this?”
“Isn’t the answer obvious? You are the Crown heir of Shu Kingdom.” If you die on the land of Kingdom of Ye, will Royal Brother give up? Will the subjects of the Kingdom of Shu give up? When you die, the relationship between Ye and Shu will finally break down…when you die, the only Royal family left to inherit the throne will be Fourth Royal Sister and I. I have always ignored the affairs of state, but not Fourth Royal Sister. With your death, isn’t it clear who would benefit the most?”
With Yun Zhongyue’s outburst, the hall fell into a dead silence and the one who broke this dead silence was…Hua Nong Ying.
“Second Brother, your Kingdom of Shu is really not in an ordinary mess. Not just your brothers, but even your aunts and nieces can kill each other. But this has nothing to do with me. The purpose of mine is to remind Ye Country’s Emperor and my Junior Sister, the eldest princess of Shu not only wants to kill her own niece, but she is planning to extend her hand to Junior sister for the next step.”
