Chapter 219 Unexpected Identity!
However, what Xia Mingxuan didn’t know was that Xia Yuqing who he thought was eating now with a great appetite actually lifted her head from the table full of dishes when he turned and left the room.
The joy that was disguised on her face also faded cleanly. She spat the things in her mouth to the side. Xia Yuqing’s face instantly became a little heavy.
Xia Mingxuan’s remarks were indeed very convincing. She almost believed it, but it was a pity that Xia Mingxuan underestimated Xia Yuqing’s wariness too much.
One’s clothes can be changed, one’s smell can also be changed, but some things will still reveal themselves such as the jade pendant that he wore on his waist. Before she fainted, the jade pendant had issued a sound at the time…
Looking at the table full of food, Xia Yuqing felt it a little hard to swallow for the first time in her life. Turning her eyes slightly, she glanced around.
Just as Xia Yuqing was staring at a table of dishes stupidly, not knowing what to do, she heard a familiar meow.
Xia Yuqing was taken aback: “This voice is…”
After a short astonishment, Xia Yuqing hurriedly reached out and lifted the tablecloth under the dining table, only to find that there was nothing. Could it be she had heard it wrong?
Xia Yuqing was puzzled. She then heard a sound of claws scratching from above her head. She looked up in surprise, and saw a familiar black cat whizzing down on herself from the beam of the room.
Xia Yuqing took a deep breath. She hurriedly got up and stretched out her hand in the direction where the black cat pounced. She was directly hit by the swooping black cat and sat down on the ground.
“Huh, Xiao Hei, you should lose weight, you almost killed me!” Xia Yuqing touched her aching buttocks, then patted Xiao Hei’s round, meaty butt.
“Meow…” Xiao Hei yelled aggrievedly. This person clearly lost a lot of meat just to see Xiao Qing Er, why did she still say he was fat?
Naturally, Xia Yuqing couldn’t see Xiao Hei’s grievances, but being able to see an acquaintance at this time, even if it was just a familiar cat, this feeling was hard to describe.
The nervousness that Xia Yuqing had from being taken to a place she didn’t know dissipated a lot. She got up from the ground holding Xiao Hei. Xia Yuqing touched the fluff on Xiao Hei’s body and asked in a low voice, “Xiao Hei, how did you come here? Could it be that we were caught together?”
Xiao Hei opened his teeth and moved his paws for a while, allowing Xia Yuqing vaguely know its meaning.
“You mean you weren’t caught? You came with me?”
Xiao Hei nodded obediently, and then “meowed” again.
“Are you trying to say… you will protect me?”
Xiao Hei raised his neck and said, “Of course, with this young master here to protect you, you don’t have to worry!”
Xia Yuqing couldn’t help but laugh out loud. Xiao Hei heard Xia Yuqing’s laughter, and immediately became a little displeased, and angered at Xia Yuqing. Xiao Hei began to move his paws around.
Xia Yuqing took back her smile and held Xiao Hei’s claws with a light laugh: “Ok, ok, I know, I know. Stop it, I will also take good care of you Xiao Hei.”
Xiao Hei stopped struggling. He raised his head and snorted triumphantly, as if to say: that sounds about right.
Xia Yuqing touched Xiao Hei’s fur. She thought, cats really did need some coaxing. However, after Xiao Hei appeared, she did feel relieved a lot, but Xia Yuqing’s expression became a little serious when she saw the mess on the table.
What exactly does Xia Mingxuan want to do? She had no clue at all. If he just wanted to use herself to keep her Royal Brother in check, it’s okay, but if it’s something else…
As if feeling Xia Yuqing’s worry, Xiao Hei, who was still acting arrogant, jumped up from Xia Yuqing’s arms. He licked Xia Yuqing’s small face comfortingly.
Xia Yuqing stretched out her hand and touched Xiao Hei’s warm fur. She smiled reluctantly. The most urgent thing now was to find a way to leave this place as soon as possible.
Xia Yuqing was sitting in a mountain villa and was helpless, while in the Xia Country Palace on the other side, Xia Haotian, who learned of Xia Yuqing’s disappearance, immediately pointed his finger at Imperial Concubine Roujia in the palace.
Not long after Imperial Concubine Roujia awoke, she heard a sharp announcement from outside: “The emperor has arrived.”
Imperial Concubine Roujia stopped moving. After reacting, she couldn’t help but feel a bit of surprise on her face. She quickly walked out and greeted him, “This concubine greets the emperor. Your Majesty came so early to visit this concubine, this concubine…”
The voice of Imperial Concubine Roujia stopped abruptly, because Xia Haotian didn’t listen to her at all. He grasped her wrist and said coldly, “Where is the person?”
The smile on Royal Concubine Roujia’s face froze for an instant. Her eyes constricted, and she said in surprise: “Your Majesty, what are you talking about? This concubine doesn’t understand at all.”
Before the words fell, Royal Concubine Roujia clearly felt someone’s hand on her wrist tighten. The pain came so suddenly that she almost screamed out.
“Zhen’s patience is limited, don’t challenge my authority. Tell Zhen honestly, where is the person now, otherwise, the consequences is not something you can bear!”
Royal Concubine Roujia struggled hard to get rid of Xia Haotian’s shackles, but she couldn’t do anything. She was also a little annoyed: “Your Majesty, what are you doing? You ran to this concubine’s for no reason and now wants this concubine to tell you where the person is? How could this concubine know what Your Majesty is talking about? Your Majesty, let go of this concubine first, okay?”
Xia Haotian saw that Royal Concubine Roujia did not look like she was pretending and he couldn’t help but feel a little suspicious. However, he quickly pressed it down again. His eyes were somewhat cold: “Who would it be if it wasn’t you? Who knows the identity of that child except you? Who would touch her?”
“The kid? You mean that little b*tch? That little b*tch is gone? So you think I touched her? Hahaha, that little b*tch is gone? Gone? That’s great, great! ”
Xia Haotian looked at the excitement of Royal Concubine Roujia and frowned. He loosened her wrist and threw the person to the ground: “It’s really not you?”
“I wish, but it’s a pity it’s not. If the identity of that little b*tch is made public, some people will definitely take good care of her. Maybe it was some scum who made the first move. Hahahaha, good work, good work!” Royal Concubine Roujia sat down on the ground, madly laughing.
Xia Haotian snorted coldly when he saw this, “Even if it wasn’t you, it seems you have thought about it.”
Royal Concubine Roujia’s expression changed slightly, a trace of guilty conscience crossed her eyes.
When Xia Haotian saw this, he knew that he was right. His eyes were cold, and he sneered: “You better pray that the child remains unscathed, otherwise…”
“Why should I do that? I wish she’d die sooner, so she can quickly see her Mother.”
With a slap, Royal Concubine Roujia’s face was tilted to one side. A red mark appeared in an instant.
Royal Concubine Roujia touched her aching face in a daze: “You hit me? You hit me? I have married you for so many years, yet you have never hit me before. Now because of a little b*tch, you dare hit me? Hahaha, as soon as that little b*tch disappeared, you knew about it. You put some eyes on her, right? What did you promise me? You said you would never…”
Before Royal Concubine Roujia finished speaking, Xia Haotian had already interrupted her impatiently: “The past is the past and the present is the present. Now, you better control yourself, otherwise, even if Zhen won’t touch you, Zhen can still touch your precious son. If that child has one hair missing, I will ask your son to return double!”
“What?” Royal Concubine Roujia’s expression changed. She looked up at Xia Haotian in disbelief, “You want to touch Xuan Er? Xia Haotian, you beast, you want to touch Xuan Er for that little b*tch? That little b*tch is your child, but isn’t Xuan Er your child?”
Xia Haotian didn’t answer. He stared at Royal Concubine Roujia with a pair of cold eyes, making Royal Concubine Roujia shiver. She knew that he was not joking. He was…serious.
Xia Haotian took a deep look at Royal Concubine Roujia, before turning around and waving his sleeves.
Only Royal Concubine Roujia remained sitting on the ground with a dazed face, until her maid on the side came to help her.
“Yu Tan, was it our people?” Royal Concubine Roujia finally recovered from the shock and whispered in a low voice.
Her Senior Maid helped her on the side. Yu Tan’s face changed slightly, and she whispered: “Niang Niang, our people haven’t had time to do it.”
Royal Concubine Roujia raised her eyebrows: “So, there is another group of people who wanted to move against that little b*tch?”
Royal Concubine Roujia took two steps forward, then turned her head and asked: “Who is it?”
Yu Tan hesitated, then approached Royal Concubine Roujia’s ear and whispered a few words.
There was a trace of surprise in the eyes of Royal Concubine Roujia’s face. It became a little ugly: “Could it be… prepare now, Ben Gong is about to leave the palace.”
Xia Yuqing on the other side didn’t know that danger was approaching. At this moment, she was standing in front of a high wall, silently looking up at the sky at a forty-five degree angle.
D*mn it, why did you build such high walls? Don’t you know it’s a waste of materials? With such a high wall, was there any materials left for the house?
Xia Yuqing looked at the towering wall, then looked at her short stature, and decisively gave up her plan to climb over the wall and leave.
Xia Yuqing had seen enough of the scenery on the wall, and instead locked target under the wall. Normally, wouldn’t there be a small hole like a dog hole under the wall? Since she can’t climb over, she could still crawl out.
Facts have proved that Xia Yuqing still thinks too positively. After searching under the walls of the entire villa, Xia Yuqing did not find the legendary dog hole.
As a result, Xia Yuqing became frustrated again. This sister didn’t even mind drilling through the dog hole, unexpectedly… the farthest distance in the world is not life and death, but the end of a wall. I don’t even have a dog hole to go through!
Just as Xia Yuqing was infinitely sad, a soft voice came from behind: “Little Gongzi, what are you doing here?”
Xia Yuqing was startled. She turned around and saw the maid she saw at the beginning: “Ahahahaha, I…I just wanted to find your master, but I seemed to have accidentally…gotten lost!”
The little maid glanced at Xia Yuqing, not suspicious. Anyways, the master said that, as long as the little Gongzi doesn’t leave the gate, any place in this mansion, he can freely come and go.
“Does the young Gongzi want to look for Master? Why didn’t you tell Nu Bi? Nu Bi will take you to find master.”
“Okay… ok!” Xia Yuqing finally witnessed once again how a misfortune can come from her mouth. As expected, if you don’t court a disaster, you won’t die. Why did I blurt out such a lame excuse just now! Isn’t this rushing into the wolf den by yourself? Transmigration god, I am begging you to reverse time, please let me take this sentence back into my stomach!
It’s a pity that the most unreliable thing in this world is the medicine of regret. With no other way, Xia Yuqing could only follow the little maid with a stiff face and go to the place where Xia Mingxuan is.
“Master won’t come back yet, little Gongzi can go inside and wait first. Master will be back in a while.”
“Oh.” Xia Yuqing was struggling to ride the tiger (hard to stop halfway) and had to walk in under the little maid’s somewhat fiery and ambiguous gaze.
When the door behind her closed, Xia Yuqing breathed a sigh of relief, then she silently began to figure out how to confuse her in the future.
After thinking about it, Xia Yuqing’s brain flashed: How about I tell Fourth Royal Brother that I’m here to thank him? I just finished dinner, but didn’t care for him. After I finished eating, I felt uneasy, so I came over to say thank you in person.
Oh my, how can I be so smart? Xia Yuqing couldn’t help being narcissistic when she thought of this. She instantly felt her whole person shining with the light of wisdom.
Just when Xia Yuqing was doing some mental preparation for herself, she heard footsteps outside.
“!” F*ck, came back so soon? I’m not ready!
Xia Yuqing was in a hurry when a voice from outside made her mood fall to the bottom. Her mental preparation that she had finally made was broken into scum.
“Xuan Er, explain it to your Mother clearly.”
“… ” God, isn’t this the voice of Fourth Royal Brother’s Mother?
“Mother, this is not the place to talk, let’s go in and talk about it later, okay?”
“!” Go in, go in where? Here?
Xia Yuqing rang the alarm bell in her heart. She glanced around, and hurriedly hid behind the pillar. After hiding, she felt she was too easily spotted.
In a hurry, Xia Yuqing saw a closet not far away, just big enough to fit her.
Xia Yuqing heard the footsteps outside and rushed directly towards the wardrobe.
Shoot, the person who wants to flee actually ran into the closet of the person who she wanted to escape from? She was probably the only person in the world who would do that!
When Xia Yuqing closed the closet door, the door outside was just pushed open. Later, Xia Yuqing heard the footsteps of two people coming over and the sound of the closing door…
“Xuan Er, tell your Mother, is that little b*tch here? That girl…”
“!” Girl? Is the Imperial Concubine talking about me? Could it be that Fourth Royal Brother and the Imperial Concubine already knew that she was a woman disguised as a man?
“Mother, what are you talking about, I don’t understand.”
“Don’t pretend to be stupid with your Mother. The spies have told your Mother, someone saw your people take the person away. Give them to your Mother. Your Mother will help you deal with her.”
“!” Deal with her? What kind of deep hatred does the Imperial Concubine have towards herself, that she wants to deal with herself…? ! Oo, I must be eavesdropping wrong, the person they are speaking about cannot be her, not her!
Xia Mingxuan was silent for a while, then he bluntly rejected Royal Concubine Roujia: “Mother, I’m sorry, I can’t do that.”
“Because… I like her.”
“!” Fourth Royal Brother Likes… her…
“What?” Royal Concubine Roujia screamed as if she had heard something shocking, “How can you like her? Xuan Er, did you get cursed? She is your sister, how can you…”
“…” Sister? ! So she is the person they were talking about? No, f*ck. This is not the point. The point is what Fourth Royal Brother said just now? He likes me? There is something wrong, I am his own sister, even if not in soul, at least in body! Although they were half-siblings, they were still related by blood. Isn’t this…a problem? Transmigration God, you are really playing with fire, really!
“Why not? There is no real blood relationship, so why not?”
“!” Did I hear some great secret again? What does it mean to have no real blood relationship?
Royal Concubine Roujia was also obviously taken aback. She stepped back two steps: “What did you say?”
“Mother you should know this well. Today, Er Chen will say it clearly. Since Er Chen was young, no matter what Mother ordered, Er Chen would follow. But this time, Er Chen can’t follow Mother’s wishes. Mother, Er Chen wants someone so much for the first time. Er Chen hopes that Mother will fulfill this wish. If Mother is really unwilling to fulfill it, don’t blame Erchen in disrespecting Mother.”
“You…” Her most respected and trusted son turned against her for the person she hated the most? This blow to Royal Concubine Roujia was not insignificant.
Royal Concubine Roujia was stunned for a while before returning to her senses. Looking at Xia Mingxuan about to leave, she blurted out: “Even if there is no blood relationship, you can’t like her. You can like anyone, but her.”
“Why?” Xia Mingyuan didn’t understand the paranoia of his Mother.
“Because…because she is the daughter of the former princess!”
