Chapter 195 The Second Evidence!
The moonlight was as cool as water, and in the quiet courtyard, a thin boy was crying silently in the desolate evening breeze.
What was the purpose of him making such a big fuss searching just now? !
Yun Zhongyue looked at the stack of letters in his hand, it was the first time that he clearly felt the malice from the world.
At this moment, his mood was like having a group of grass mud horses (F word) whizzing past his head, directly stomping his head into several pit holes!
God, don’t play like this, I’ll be ruined!
Yun Zhongyue held his forehead with one hand and posed like the thinker. After a moment of sadness, he raised his head again. He took the letter in his hand and put it at his chest. Along the way, he took care of the messy clothes on him, restoring his usual appearance.
After going back, he must say that he found these things from his Fourth Sister’s room after great pain. If he said it fell from the sky, wouldn’t that be too unbelievable? !
After making up his mind, Yun Zhongyue coughed lightly and pretended that nothing had happened. He leaped lightly and rushed over the walls of the princess mansion. He quickly left the princess mansion, and rushed to the place where Xia Yuqing and the others were temporarily staying.
However, that night was destined to be a restless night. Therefore, when Yun Zhongyue escaped from the princess mansion, before he ran two or three streets, he heard a noise coming from not far away.
Could it be that he was discovered? Yun Zhong Yue became alarmed. He hurriedly found a place on a roof to hide.
“Don’t run, don’t run.” The sound of rapid footsteps, mixed with clashes of swords, echoed on the silent streets at night.
The people who were awakened, got up to take a look at the situation, opening their doors slightly. After seeing the clothes of the chasing team behind, they hurriedly closed the door, not daring to take another look.
On the empty streets, there was only an injured girl who was still running forward with gritted teeth. A group of big officers and soldiers chased after them.
The situation was not optimistic. After confirming that those people were not chasing him, Yun Zhong Yue didn’t intend to bother with things that didn’t involve himself. However, he didn’t expect that as soon as he flew up to prepare to jump over to the other side of the roof, Yun Zhongyue turned his head and saw the girl running in front.
It’s okay not to look, but looking made Yun Zhongyue almost directly fall off from the roof.
Yun Zhong Yue hurriedly stabilized his figure, then he rushed to the opposite roof in one fell swoop. Using the cover of the ridge, he took another look at the woman who was running away. He didn’t make a mistake, the woman who was chased by the officers and soldiers was really… Jiang Zhaorou? !
To save her or not to save her, this was the question. Yun Zhong Yue hesitated for a moment. In the end he gritted his teeth and made a decision that would be too late for regrets. He slid off the roof and ran in the direction where Jiang Zhaorou had escaped.
The blood on her arm fell to the ground, trickling, indicating the loss of her life bit by bit.
Jiang Zhaorou could feel the strength in her body fading, bit by bit. The blood on her face gradually faded, and her pace began to slow down, but her head was unexpectedly awake.
As long as she remembered that there was someone waiting for herself somewhere, waiting for herself to save him… she felt energetic.
She must escape. Yes, she must escape! With such a belief in her heart, Jiang Zhaorou clenched her teeth and persevered.
Jiang Zhaorou didn’t know how long she ran, how far she ran, or where and which direction she ran from. As time passed bit by bit, Jiang Zhaorou deeply felt the powerlessness spreading from within her limbs. Even her consciousness began to blur little by little.
Just when she thought she was doomed to be unable to escape, a hand suddenly stretched out from her side. Before she exclaimed, he grabbed her wrist and covered her mouth.
“Hush…… it’s me.”
Jiang Zhaorou heard the other party’s soft voice and shuddered. She looked up, surprised. It was Yun Zhongyue: “Sixth prince.”
“En.” Yun Zhong Yue said lightly. He glanced at the wound on Jiang Zhaorou’s hand, and cleanly tore one of his own sleeves. He hastily wrapped her wound, and stopped the blood flow. Afterwards, he hid Jiang Zhaorou in an alley on the side, “Follow me.”
The officers and soldiers who were chasing outside, lost track of the blood stains. They all stopped at the intersection unable to find the direction to head.
“Where’s the person? Where did they go? You guys go this way, you guys go there, the others follow me.”
Yun Zhong Yue listened to the movement outside. When he heard most of the people’s footsteps were getting further and further away and could no longer hear them, he cautiously poked his head out of the alley and glanced at the calm and empty street that was restored again. He breathed a sigh of relief, then turned his head. He was just about to ask Jiang Zhaorou something when he felt a heaviness on his chest.
Yun Zhongyue became stiff. He looked down to face Jiang Zhaorou’s bloodless face.
A beautiful woman throwing herself into his arms, an average man would feel like a meat was thrown to them from the sky, they would feel as if they won a big lottery. Of course…there are some exceptions. It is very unfortunate that there was such a one right here.
With a beauty in his arms, Yun Zhongyue didn’t have the slightest thought of being hit by the big prize. Instead, he was so annoyed he wanted to explode with curses.
D*mn it, this Lao Zi likes Lu Rui. This Lao Zi’s person is Lu Rui’s. Lao Zi’s body is Lu Rui’s. Lao Zi’s heart is also Lu Rui’s, everything about Lao Zi’s is Lu Rui’s! I have no interest in other women at all! (T/N: I LUV YUNZHONGYUE X LU RUI; FAVE SHIP <3)
Yun Zhong Yue endured the resentment in his heart for someone’s gratitude, then he put on a serious and upright expression: “Miss Jiang, don’t get me wrong, I only treated you kindly only out of morality. Towards you… I have no intentions. In terms of offering yourself to me, I already have… hey, what are you doing?”
Because of the excessive blood loss, Jiang Zhaorou’s consciousness was already a little faded, so she didn’t hear Yun Zhongyue’s words at all. There was only one thought in her mind at the moment.
Clutching Yun Zhongyue’s collar tightly, Jiang Zhaorou moved her lips weakly: “Help…help my Lord!”
“Help? Help who?” Yun Zhong Yue was startled. Jiang Zhaorou’s voice was too small, he couldn’t hear it at all. He lowered his head to ask, but felt the grip of her hand loosen and her body pressed on him lightly. Jiang Zhaorou had completely…fainted.
“…” Yun Zhongyue crashed for a second, “Miss Jiang…Miss Jiang…Hey, don’t faint, wake up, wake up!”
“Crash……” Under the tall full moon, a fierce vulture flapped its wings and landed on the shoulder of a young man standing at the top of the princess mansion house which was just a few streets down from the alley where Yun Zhongyue was located. The vulture leaned towards the youth as if asking for credit.
Ying Yue lightly hooked the corners of his lips. He took out a red berry from his purse around his waist and stuffed it into the mouth of the vulture. He patted its head and praised: “Great job.”
The vulture receiving its reward, screeched joyfully for it’s appreciation it wanted; then he took off to the sky, circling back and forth.
Ying Yue no longer paid attention to the pet on the top of his head. He lowered his head and glanced at Yun Zhongyue in the alley, who was a little frantic because Jiang Zhaorou had fainted. Because his chest was pulled at, the corner of the letter hidden there was revealed. The corners of his lips raised slightly.
Who would have thought that the evidence that Feng Tingye and the others had worked so hard to find of the princess of Shu and Xue Country colluding in a rebellion, would actually be hidden in the library next to the stables of the backyard that was set on fire that day. Who would have thought that before the library and the pond fish was burnt to ashes, that thing would have been stolen from the library first.
Ying Yue squinted slightly at Yun Zhongyue not far away, then resolutely refused to admit that he was helping them. He…he just wanted to make things more interesting. Yes, it was just like that.
“Speaking of which, it’s been a long time since I saw beauty Bi Xuan. Could it be that she went to make a report?” Ying Yue raised his head and glanced at the full moon above and murmured with a smile. Thinking of something, his eyes went cold. The curvature of his lips became a little dangerous, “Well, it would be more interesting, wouldn’t it? Haha…”
It was the next morning when Jiang Zhaorou woke up again. Her head was still a mass of paste, but there was a familiar sound around her.
“Oh, Second Brother, you were just supposed to find some news, yet you picked up a piece of soap and came back? Tsk tsk tsk…”
With a “click”, Jiang Zhaorou clearly felt the string in her mind called sanity…broken! You are soap, your whole family is soap!
Without knowing that she had driven someone crazy, Xia Yuqing stared at Jiang Zhaorou who was on the bed of Yun Zhongyue. She touched her chin and exclaimed: “Second Brother, you even let Jiang Feizao sleep on your bed? Seeing how weak she looks… Say, did you do something shameful last night?”
Looking at the gossip and ambiguity in Xia Yuqing’s eyes, Yun Zhongyue went dark. He stepped forward and explained: “Little Junior Sister, you have misunderstood, I really have nothing to do with this girl. Last night, after inquiring about the news from Fourth Sisters’ mansion, I happened to run into this girl who was being chased and killed. I thought that for the sake that she had met Little Junior Sister, I should work hard to remove her from those people, thus I rescued her with my own hands.”
At this point, Yun Zhongyue looked at Xia Yuqing helplessly. He was clearly implying that she had brought this big trouble to him.
“Who knew that this girl would faint as soon as she escaped the chase. There was nothing I could do, so since I saved her, I might as well help her until the end. She was badly injured and I couldn’t leave her on the street. Being blown by the wind the entire night, I wasn’t sure if she would last. In desperation, I brought her back. She was a girl and injured. I couldn’t let her rest on the floor, so I gave her the bed. I was on the beam last night. It’s completely not what you are thinking of Little Junior Sister! Me and her are definitely innocent!”
Yun Zhongyue really regretted it all. If he knew he would get into such big trouble if he rescued her, he wouldn’t have lent a hand last night! Even a hundred mouths can’t explain it properly! (no matter how one explains, the misunderstandings cannot be cleared)
Who is his Junior Sister? She was the most respected master of Lu Rui! If his Junior Sister misunderstands the identity of himself and this girl and goes back to talk to Miss Lu Rui, Miss Lu Rui will surely believe it. If Miss Lu Rui mistakenly thinks that he is the same big radish as his Senior Brother, then his road to chasing his wife would be bound to be covered with thorns again!
After hearing Yun Zhongyue’s explanation, Xia Yuqing couldn’t help but look up at the beam above her head for a second. She was surprised. Staying on a beam for the entire night, Second Brother are you little dragon girl? (character from another novel)
She thought suspiciously of Yun Zhongyue not making a bed on the floor and crawling on top of the beam to sleep. Xia Yuqing’s eyes went back and forth between Yun Zhong Yue and Jiang Zhaorou: “Really?”
“Of course it’s true. It’s more real than pearls!”
“Oh. In that case, why didn’t you tell us last night? Why did you wait until this morning when I came to you? No matter how you look at it, it looks like a house where one keeps their mistress!”
If Xia Yuqing didn’t say it, it would be fine, but as soon as she said this, Yun Zhongyue’s resentment that had been suffocating for the whole night spread out in full view for their naked eyes.
If possible, he would also have liked to make it clear to them as soon as he came back last night! But who knew that when he hurriedly carried someone back to the inn last night, what he saw was not the welcoming gesture by these people with worried faces, but the cruel news: all of them washed up and went to sleep before he came back!
When he learned of the explosive news at the time, he was petrified on the spot. He crumbled into pieces by the cold wind. He was outside working himself to exhaustion, risking his life, sneaking into Fourth Sisters’ mansion, trying to inquire about the news, yet they weren’t worried at all? Instead, they were so unscrupulous that before he came back, they already went to bed? He couldn’t bear it!
At that moment, he felt like he was the little cabbage that no one wanted and was cruelly abandoned in the cold wind, shivering with tears streaming down his face!
D*mn, why can’t we play happily together!
The battered Yun Zhongyue with great difficulty recollected his frame of mind. He wanted to request another room from the shopkeeper to settle Jiang Zhaorou down, but was told that the guest room was full and there were no rooms left. If it was really necessary, they could stay in the firewood room overnight, and enjoy a discount of half the rent. However, the place was a bit close to the toilet. “
Yun Zhong Yue became a sparta on the spot. Half off? Half off your sister! Is Lao Zi the kind of person who is greedy, petty and cheap? The firewood house is close to the toilet? Isn’t it using the same wall? Moreover, this small broken inn is full of guests? He really went out without looking at the calendar (checking his luck/fortune), how unlucky!
Yun Zhongyue was full of resentment since everything went wrong all night, and ended up on the bedroom beam. That would have been fine. However, he didn’t sleep well and suffered from a sore back. Yet, he heard an exclamation early in the morning. He was so scared that he woke up and got a big bump on the top of his head. Now he had to suffer from unspeakable bitterness.
Yun Zhongyue once again asked, is there anyone more unlucky than him?! He was too tired, he will not run errands anymore!
Just when Yun Zhongyue was full of remorse and regret and had completely forgotten to explain, an exclamation suddenly came from the side. It drew everyone’s attention away from him.
“Qing Jiejie, Jiang Feizao woke up.”
Jiang Zhaorou was a little relieved because she was finally out of danger. However, after hearing this d*mn title again, the little joy was completely wiped out. All that was left was anger: “D*mn it. You are soap, your whole family is soap!
” …” The room was dead silent for a few seconds, then everyone heard Yun Xi murmur a little lostly: “My whole family is the entire Shu royal family. Jiang Feizao, you are insulting the entire Shu royal family, offending royal blood. This is offending the dragon. Your nine generations of family can be executed.”
“…”Jiang Zhaorou tried to unleash herself but ended up kicking the iron plate from under Yun Xi. The expression on her face was not marvelous. In the end she bit her lip unwillingly and turned her head.
Xia Yuqing was stunned for a few seconds. Only then did she recover from Jiang Zhaorou’s explosive roar, and said in a rounded tone: “Okay, okay, take a step back. Let’s not get entangled over this issue. ”
Jiang Zhaorou raised her head and glanced at Xia Yuqing. It seemed to say, if it weren’t for you, would I have such a shameful nickname for no reason?
Xia Yuqing touched her nose with a guilty conscience, and changed the subject: “Second Brother said that you were chased and was going to be killed last night. What happened?”
After Xia Yuqing reminded her, Jiang Zhaorou remembered the reason why she had escaped. She stretched out her hand to grab Xia Yuqing, but Feng Tingye, who had been guarding Xia Yuqing’s side, discovered her intention first and clasped her hand.
Jiang Zhaorou didn’t care about her right hand being sorely clasped by Feng Tingye. She said anxiously: “Save my lord, save my lord.”
“My lord?” Xia Yuqing, who was held in Feng Tingye’s arms, was startled, “Is it Little General Ji? What’s wrong with him?”
Jiang Zhaorou pursed her lips, and said with some difficulty: “My lord was arrested by Her Royal Highness, and is now locked up in Ji Mansion.”
Xia Yuqing was taken aback, somewhat puzzled: “But why? Isn’t Little General Ji the Eldest Princess’s nephew? Shouldn’t the Eldest Princess rely more on the little general in this extraordinary period? Why did she get him locked up instead?”
Yun Zhongyue seemed to have thought of something. He inserted a sentence: “Ji Miaoyan is resisting Fourth Sister? ”
Jiang Zhaorou paused, then nodded her head: “The Lord does not agree with the Eldest Princess’ attempt towards the throne because of her wild ambition. He had an argument with the Eldest Princess, so the Eldest Princess angrily locked lord up.”
Yun Zhongyue’s eyes flashed with a little clarity. The Ji family had been officials for generations, loyal to the royal family and loyal to the monarch. The children of the Ji family were taught from childhood to defend their family and defend the country and be loyal to the emperor. If it weren’t for Ji Miaoyan himself being a bit skewed, it would never be possible for him to get along with Yunshan just because of their relationship of being nephew and aunt to subvert the overall situation of Shu.
“My lord is now locked in the Ji mansion. It’s hard for him to move. My strength is not enough to rescue him……”
“So?” Feng Tingye had obviously guessed Jiang Zhaorou’s intentions. He raised his eyebrows, and asked with a faint smile.
Xia Yuqing looked at the smile on his face, somehow there was a chill running down her back. The Ultra Seme Lord once again showed his smile, he must be… wanting to cheat people again!
Xia Yuqing glanced at Jiang Zhaorou sympathetically. She silently lit a row of candles for her in her heart.
Jiang Zhaorou was silent for a moment, then tightened the sheets on the bed. She pursed her lips, bowed her head and pleaded: “Please… please, save my lord!”
Seeing her like this, Feng Tingye didn’t even move his eyebrows: “That’s it?”
“Otherwise, what do you want?” Jiang Zhaorou’s clenched lips were almost dripping blood. Since she came out of the Jiang mansion, she has climbed up step by step for a specific purpose. She had indeed done a lot of shameful things, but even so, she had never bowed her head to anyone. This time… She had bowed her head once again, not to her own life, nor to her own powerlessness, yet this man did not have the slightest reaction!
“Eh…” Seeing Jiang Zhaorou grit her teeth, being infuriated by Feng Tingye so much that she couldn’t wait to pounce on him and bite him, Xia Yuqing interjected, “Actually, although General Ji is locked up, the princess won’t hurt him. After all, she’s his aunt. There shouldn’t be any danger, right?”
“Not necessarily, Junior Sister. Don’t forget, if the matter of General Ji is true, then my Fourth Sister is someone who could even make a move against her own Uncle. In contrast, it’s not hard for her to do something to her nephew, especially…” Yun Zhongyue gave Jiang Zhaorou a thoughtful look, “If this nephew knew what happened back then…”
Yun Zhongyue’s words made Jiang Zhaorou’s face pale. Xia Yuqing asked in surprise: “Did you tell the old general’s matters to young General Ji?”
Jiang Zhaorou shook her head, but her face did not slack: “No, but I feel that the Lord has begun to have doubt in his heart.”
“Once the seeds of doubt are planted, it will easily take root and sprout. People like the princess will not tolerate a seed of doubt. That’s a person who could drag her down at any time. She will never let them stay safe and sound by her side.” Yan Tingfang couldn’t help but interject as she listened to the conversation.
It was this sentence that made Jiang Zhaorou notice her: “You, you…you are the one from Prime Minister Yan’s family back then…”
“You…know me?” Compared to Jiang Zhaorou’s surprise, Yan Tingfang was surprised that Jiang Zhaorou knew her. If she remembered correctly, she should have never seen this person before…
“It was a one time fate, just a glance from a distance. To be precise, I just took a look at you from a distance, and you haven’t seen me, it is normal if you don’t remember me.”
She happened to be dragged down by the Jiang family’s affairs. Fortunately, Ji Miaoyan rescued her and she escaped. When she first arrived in the capital, she happened to meet Prime Minister Yan’s family on a trip. At that time, their family was close and harmonious. The appearance of joyfulness almost pierced her eyes.
At that time she thought that if she could be born into such a family, she…would be willing to trade anything for it. Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for Yan Cheng to betray the country and commit suicide in fear of sin. Yan Tingfang had no news, so Jiang Zhaorou thought she died in that accident with the Yan family. How could she know…
Thinking about this, Jiang Zhaorou seemed to have discovered something. She looked back at Xia Yuqing: “You lied to me. Your purpose of coming to Shu was not just to find the murderer who plotted against Her Royal Highness, right?”
“Uh…” When the lie was exposed, Xia Yuqing smiled awkwardly and looked at the sky silently.
Jiang Zhaorou’s mouth twitched. She stared at Yan Tingfang for a long time, then turned to look at Feng Tingye and laughed with a kind of relief: “You don’t want to save my lord in vain, so you want me to pay some price, right?”
Feng Tingye looked at Jiang Zhaorou who had suddenly become self-confident from her original decadence. He raised his eyebrows: “Then we have to see if the price you are paying is worth us taking this risk.”
Jiang Zhaorou seemed to have expected Feng Tingye would say that. She laughed and took out something that she had carried for a long time from her body: “What do you think of this?”
“That is… …” Yan Tingfang’s face changed suddenly when she saw the thing Jiang Zhaorou was holding, “The memorial written by my father back then!”
“What?” Xia Yuqing and the others didn’t feel much when they saw Jiang Zhaorou take out the item, but when they heard Yan Tingfang’s words, everyone’s expressions were the same. They looked at Jiang Zhaorou’s smug look in surprise.
“Why is this thing in your hand?” Feng Tingye took the lead to recover from the shock, and asked with a slight squint as he stared at Jiang Zhaorou.
Jiang Zhaorou’s lips turned upwards. She met Feng Tingye’s gaze, and chuckled softly: “The Third Prince handed it to me before he died.”
The Third Prince? ! Xia Yuqing was taken aback. In other words, the memorial of Prime Minister Yan was taken away by the Third Prince and he hid it? !
If everyone was a little skeptical about the memorial in Jiang Zhaorou’s hands at the beginning, everyone’s suspicion had completely subsided after hearing her words.
“This memorial originally shouldn’t have fallen into my hands. It’s a pity that the b*stard Xizeyan turned into a traitor and betrayed the Third Prince. The Third Prince had no other choice, he had to hand this thing into my hand.”
After listening to Jiang Zhaorou’s explanation, Feng Tingye’s eyes darkened slightly: “You started to doubt the princess because of this memorial?”
Xia Yuqing and the others were taken aback. Yes, they should have known that Jiang Zhaorou was Ji Miaoyan’s person. In a sense, Ji Miaoyan still respected the princess, so Jiang Zhaorou shouldn’t doubt the princess in that sense. Unless…something happened and she had to believe it.
Jiang Zhaorou was also taken aback. After a short silence, she shook her head and smiled bitterly: “No, it was the Third Prince who told me before his death that the old general’s death was related to the princess. At first, I thought the Third Prince was upset and wanted to use me to provoke the relationship between the lord and the Eldest Princess. But then the more I thought about it, the more wrong things I saw, so I wanted your help. And the result…you have also seen……”
After listening to the cause and effect, everyone couldn’t help but sigh.
Xia Yuqing looked at the letter in Jiang Zhaorou’s hand and remembered that the Third Prince had been abandoned by the Eldest Princess and became a scapegoat. The ridiculous princess probably never thought that this abandoned prince would eventually bite her back, and it would very likely be a fatal bite. The plot of this kind of dog biting dog drama is really cruel. Thus, there is a good saying! What comes around, goes around! Karma sucks!
Xia Yuqing was amazed at the story of this divine turning point. When she turned her head, she saw a horrible collapsed expression on Yun Zhongyue, so she couldn’t help being a little surprised: “Second Brother, what’s the matter with you?”
Yun Zhong Yue responded weakly. “It’s nothing.” Then he slapped Xia Yuqing’s shoulder with a palm, “Little Junior Sister, you really are the one who is favored by God!”
“?” Xia Yuqing tilted her head, confused.
What Xia Yuqing didn’t know was that Yun Zhongyue had tears in his heart at this moment. Ahhhh, that’s enough! I was tossed back and forth twice, trying to dig up the princess mansion, yet in the end, these two crucial pieces of evidence were made after making a wish by myself? One falling from the sky, and the other… I just picked it up, God, are you playing with me on purpose? Why was it necessary for me to be so exhausted in the first place?! If this matter was spread out, do I still need the name of a thousand-handed thief? Do you want it? !
Xia Yuqing didn’t know that Yun Zhongyue was thrown into chaos. She turned her gaze back, and moved to Jiang Zhaorou’s side.
“When the Third Prince handed this thing to me, I thought it was useless, and I wanted to toss it. Now it seems that it was a good idea I didn’t. So…” Jiang Zhaorou looked up at Feng Tingye.”How about using this to exchange for the lord’s escape?”
Feng Tingye thought for a moment, and spat out: “Deal.”
After that, he reached out to take the memorial in Jiang Zhaorou’s hand, but Jiang Zhaorou avoided it.
“What do you mean by this?” Feng Tingye squinted slightly, his eyes gleaming with danger.
“Your words are meaningless. You have to save the lord first, then I will naturally give this thing to you with both hands. Until then, I will help keep it.”
Feng Tingye was silent for a moment. He nodded: “Okay…”
“Then…when are you going to save the lord?” Jiang Zhaorou looked at Feng Tingye a little anxiously.
Feng Tingye looked at her and the corners of his lips curved slightly: “Before I go to save someone, I have to wait for someone.”
“Wait for someone? Who?”
As soon as Jiang Zhaorou finished speaking, there was a sound of footsteps.
Feng Tingye narrowed his eyes and said with a faint smile: “Not too soon, not too late, just right on time.”
Before the words fell, everyone heard a bang. The door was pushed open vigorously, and there was a man in a cloak. The familiar figure suddenly appeared at the door!
