Chapter 222 Grab by force
Hu You didn’t expect Xia Yuqing to ask about this at this time. He leaned back a little in fright on the spot, and his face changed slightly: “Xia…Miss Xia, what are you talking about? What An Wang’s Mansion, what do you mean show you the way? I don’t understand at all. I’ve always stayed in the assassin house and rarely come out. How could I know An Wang and show you the way? Did you recognize the wrong person?”
Xia Yuqing touched her chin. Looking up and down Hu You for a while, she suspiciously asked: “Then why are you so nervous? Is that a guilty conscience?”
Xia Yuqing humphed, and stared at Hu You’s slightly stiff face, “Speaking of which, my Fifth Royal Brother seemed to have died quite soon after? Unfortunately, this crime was placed on my head and it almost made me a scapegoat. Thinking about it, isn’t your house an assassin house? You specialize in taking people’s money and eliminating others. Could it be that my Fifth Royal Brother was…”
“!” Wasn’t this girl usually quite dull? How did she become so clever all of a sudden?
Hu You’s face was stiff. Under Xia Yuqing’s aggressive gaze, he couldn’t help but back up: “Miss Xia is joking, how could the death of An Wang be related to us?”
“Then why did you appear at that time? In An Wang’s Mansion? What were you doing there? If you weren’t there to kill An Wang, is it possible that you were there to kill others?”
Xia Yuqing’s questioning was like a series of gun shots made towards Hu You. It was really hard to resist. He groaned bitterly. “Miss Xia, I just said, you really recognized the wrong person.”
Seeing Hu You’s retreat, Ye Sheng finally couldn’t help stepping forward and saying, “Ms. Xia, Xiao You is still young, he really has only left the assassin house a few times, I think you have recognized the wrong person.”
Xia Yuqing pursed her lips, and said after a moment of deep thought: “Well, you and him are a group, so you would obviously shield him and cannot be a solid testimony for court. So, not believable.”
“…” Present testimony in court? Miss Xia, are you planning to put me through trial as a prisoner?
“And…” Xia Yuqing approached Ye Sheng and stared at his face for a long time. “Looking closely, I’m finding…you seem to be familiar too. Could it be that you were in An Wang Palace that night too? ? ”
” …… ”
The two suspects completely froze at once. The flock of crows passing overhead in droves, burst out shrieking: “Caw caw caw …… ‘
Ye Sheng took the lead. He bowed his head and coughed twice: “It’s getting late. Although we have already left the villa, it is hard to guarantee whether the Fourth Prince might find Miss Xia missing and immediately catch up. To be on the safe side, we’d better leave here soon. “
This topic was forcibly switched. It was difficult for Xia Yuqing to know what she wanted to do. She turned her meaningful gaze to the two of them, until they both avoided it with a little guilty conscience.
Humph, not willing to tell me? It doesn’t matter, I will ask Third Senior Brother, then I will see how you deny it!
The two of them didn’t know what Xia Yuqing was thinking in her heart. They only thought that Xia Yuqing believed what they said, and sighed with relief. They hurriedly drove Xia Yuqing away from this place and stopped talking.
After walking a little bit, Xia Yuqing, who was holding Xiao Hei, suddenly remembered something. She turned her head and asked, “By the way, how did Third Senior Brother know that I was kidnapped? How did he know that I was taken to such a place?”
“This!” Hu You heard Xia Yuqing no longer struggling with the earlier question and felt relieved and answered enthusiastically, “Recently, the Lord has been experiencing the life at the second prince’s mansion in Xia Country, posing as a handyman. Yesterday when Xia Yuqing, you left for a while, the lord noticed something was wrong. A secret order was issued for those of us who were close to find Miss Xia’s whereabouts, and to bring her back. Fortunately, the place where Miss Xia was brought out was not very far. We found your whereabouts immediately, and thus arrived in a timely manner.”
Xia Yuqing actually didn’t listen to what Hu You said at the end. At this moment, there was only an endless loop in her mind: Third Senior Brother from her family was a handyman? That Virgo, narcissistic Senior Brother with a serious obsessive-compulsive disorder, went to do that kind of dirty handyman experience?
Is this world about to usher the apocalypse early? Is the sun coming out from the west? Is this a supernatural phenomenon? !
Xia Yuqing was blown away by this explosive information, she couldn’t help herself. She didn’t know that the villa at this moment had been messed up because of her disappearance.
“Really, there was nothing?” Xia Mingyuan looked at a few people a little perplexed and asked: “If you can not find her here, then where was little Royal Sister brought to?”
A few people had ugly expressions. At this moment, the sound of footsteps passed from behind everyone.
Everyone was taken aback, then turned around to look at the person who came.
“Have you noticed anything?” Shao Zitang glanced at Feng Tingye who was slowly approaching, and said straight to the point.
“Yes and no.” Feng Tingye’s face was calm, making people unable to see his joy or anger at the moment.
Xia Mingyuan frowned, and asked in a puzzled manner: “What do you mean? Don’t play dumb riddles at this time. Is there any trace of little Royal Sister in this villa?”
“It should be here, but the guards did not find anything after searching the entire villa several times. They couldn’t find the traces of Ai Fei.” This is the point that puzzled Feng Tingye the most.
“What do you mean by it should be? Since we can’t find little Junior Sister in this villa, maybe we have found the wrong place, little Junior Sister may not be here since the beginning…”
Yun Zhongyue was not finished before he was interrupted by Feng Tingye: “No, Ai Fei must have stayed in this place.”
When Feng Tingye said this, everyone gathered together curiously: “Huh? No clues were found in this villa, why are you so sure?”
Feng Tingye looked at the group’s inquisitive appearance, the corners of his lips twitched slightly. He answered softly: “Because of the food.”
Several people were surprised. They looked at each other, very confused. They looked at Feng Tingye, who was not far away, smiling very coolly behind their backs.
“Yes, the food. After following the guards searching the entire villa, Zhen went to the kitchen of this villa to take a look.”
“The kitchen? ”
“En, there were a lot of good dishes being cooked in the kitchen, it seems that Xia Mingxuan ordered them to prepare it specially for a distinguished guest.”
Several people were taken aback. They looked at each other again, instantly understanding the meaning of Feng Tingye’s words. With such a huge amount of food, this distinguished guest was almost certainly a foodie!
Xia Mingyuan looked at Feng Tingye with enchantment. This guy actually knew how to determine the whereabouts of his little Royal sister just like that? Should he say that he was extremely smart or knew his little Royal Sister too much? Or should he say that this girl was not a normal person at all. His brain circuit was not on the same channel as them at all. No wonder this guy could tolerate the intermittent derailing of his Little Royal Sister’s brain. It turns out that this is the truth!
“If the food was prepared for Little Royal Sister, then Little Royal Sister should be in no danger for the time being.”
As soon as Xia Mingyuan finished speaking, one of them replied in disgust, “That’s not necessarily. With it being so extravagant, maybe it’s the last supper.”
Everyone at the scene stiffened, they felt a cold autumn wind passing behind them. It was so cold that they wanted to shiver, but they held it back abruptly. No one dared to look at the one behind them who was releasing the air-conditioner.
Hey, we are timid, don’t scare us, we will have nightmares at night!
Shao Zitang glanced with contempt at Yun Zhongyue who hit the muzzle recklessly. He shifted the topic: “If it is true about what the emperor said and the food was really prepared for that girl, then that girl should still be in this villa, why can’t we find her?”
“It’s a possibility that she’s still somewhere in the villa, or she may have just left not long ago.” Feng Tingye turned his head and looked at Xia Mingyuan.
Xia Mingyuan was startled: “Yes, we seem to have forgotten one person. Before we entered this villa, there was another person who had just left this villa.”
“Do you suspect that Royal Concubine Roujia took the person away?” Yun Zhongyue heard this and couldn’t help but interject.
Before Feng Tingye and Xia Mingyuan had time to answer, another set of footsteps had come from not far away.
When the servants turned their heads, they saw Xia Haotian walking over with a gloomy face.
“Royal Father (emperor)!” The crowd hurriedly hid the expressions on their faces and bowed to salute. Xia Haotian didn’t stop, his eyes quickly swept across the crowd, only staying on Feng Tingye’s body for a while.
“Feng Tingye, did you do it deliberately?!” As soon as Xia Haotian walked out of everyone’s sight, Xia Mingyuan couldn’t help but curse.
He didn’t believe that his Father appeared behind them at this time for no reason. Where could there be so many coincidences in this world? !
Feng Tingye raised his eyebrows and sneered: “Free assistance.”
“…” He truly is a profiteer! This was Yun Zhongyue and the others who were onlookers.
“…” This d*mn black-bellied man! This was Xia Mingyuan, who was once again covered with blood by Feng Tingye’s deep scheming.
“Okay, what should we do now? Should we continue to stay here and wait for the rabbit, or follow Emperor Xia and the others…” Shao Zitang was already quite familiar with Feng Tingye’s black belliedness and reminded everyone present.
Before the few people came to a conclusion, they saw a snow-white homing pigeon flapping its wings and flying towards the few people. It flew down in front of Yun Zhongyue and hopped onto his arm. It lifted its foot that was bound to a letter. Yun Zhongyue stretched out his hand with a look of surprise and took the letter tube from the bird’s foot.
As soon as the letter was taken, the white pigeon pecked at Yun Zhongyue in disgust, and fluttered its wings and flew away, as if it had accidentally been stained with something dirty.
Seeing the shadow of the pigeon going away, the corners of Yun Zhongyue’s mouth were drawn more and more. He had already faintly guessed who the master of this little beast was.
Yun Zhongyue unfolded the small piece of paper in the tube. After seeing the content on it, his face suddenly constricted and became serious.
“What’s the matter?” When everyone saw him like this, a little nervousness appeared on their faces.
Yun Zhongyue looked up at the people watching him, and said solemnly: “Don’t wait here anymore, the person is indeed no longer here.” After he finished speaking, he handed the note in his hand to Feng Tingye.
Feng Tingye took the note. After seeing the content on it, his eyes lit up.
Standing in a messy bedroom, Xia Mingxuan looked at the open wardrobe door, the messy bed, and the empty room where there was no trace of the person with a gloomy expression on his face.
Behind him, a group of guards knelt to the ground, shivering, unable to speak a word.
“Before they came in and searched, the person was gone?” After a long while, Xia Mingxuan opened his mouth leisurely, breaking the suffocating silence in the room.
Behind him, the guards looked at each other. The guard kneeling at the forefront spoke up: “Ma …… Master, before they searched this room, the little Gongzi was already not within the room, we could not find him.”
Before the guard finished speaking, he felt a strong killing intent rushing towards him.
The guards who were kneeling in the front row made a big bang, all of them went flying in an instant, knocking down the closed door completely. They fell onto the stone steps outside the room and vomited a mouthful of blood.
The remaining guards were dumbfounded. When they recovered, they kowtowed one by one and begged for mercy: “Master, please forgive us!”
“Hahaha…” Xia Mingxuan’s low, ghostly laugh echoed in the house. It made everyone’s hearts tremble, “Before searching, the person was already gone? That is to say, you didn’t notice that the person in the room disappeared at all? What did this prince ask you before he left? If you can’t even look after a person, what use does this prince have for keeping you?”
After the words were finished, there was another loud noise. The remaining guards in the house all flew upside down. They ended up at the same place as those before, none spared.
Only Xia Mingxuan remained in the empty room.
Xia Mingxuan turned and walked towards the scattered bed. He lightly sat on the edge of the bed, reached out and hugged the messy bedding into his arms, as if he could absorb the smell of the person who was still lying here not long ago.
Lying sideways on the bed where he had been entangled with someone not long ago, Xia Mingxuan silently closed his eyes.
Deep silence spread in the room little by little. After an unknown period of time, Xia Mingxuan’s closed eyes opened. His beautiful eyes were filled with resentment and madness, bloodshot and extremely horrible.
“Why? Why do you want to leave me? Qing Er…” The hoarse voice was soaked in creepy coldness, echoing over and over again in the silent room, like the whisper of a ghost at midnight.
Xia Mingxuan’s hand that was holding the quilt slowly opened, then clenched into a fist. His sharp nails pierced into the flesh and drops of blood dripped down his fingers onto the quilt, creating a blood flower.
“Eh…” Xia Yuqing, who was held by Ye Sheng and Hu You flew across the wall of Xia Mingxi’s walls. She suddenly shuddered, a chill running down her back. This feeling was really ……stimulating!
“What’s the matter?” Hu You noticed Xia Yuqing’s abnormality and asked with some concern.
“Well, it’s nothing, I just felt a chill down my back.”
“…a chill down your back?” Hu You’s childish little face stiffened, he looked up at the big sun shining above his head. He grinded his teeth, “Xia…Xia…Miss Xia, I am timid, don’t scare me!”
“…” Xia Yuqing didn’t know how to respond. Ye Sheng on the side had already inserted himself a little helplessly: “Xiao You, don’t mess around, the climate has gradually entered autumn, it is not as warm as it was in midsummer. Adding to the fact that Miss Xia’s clothes are thin, it’s excusable to feel cold.”
“Oh.” Hu You nodded perfunctorily. Although it has entered early autumn, the temperature at noon was still very high, no? Although I am young, I read a lot of books. Don’t lie to me casually. Hey!
Ye Sheng sighed lightly, then turned to look at Xia Yuqing: “Miss Xia, I want to take you to the lord.”
Xia Yuqing obediently followed the two into a very remote yard.
After seeing the scenery in the yard, Xia Yuqing was completely stunned. It looked tattered. The yard comparable to a refugee camp was where her Third Senior Brother lived? Could it be that Third Senior Brother of her family has really changed? Has his OCD been successfully treated and cured? !
Facts have proved that Xia Yuqing is still too naive.
As soon as she opened the door, a very complex scent pounced on her, making Xia Yuqing’s lips freeze. After seeing the furnishings in the house, Xia Yuqing’s eyebrows trembled even more uncontrollably.
In the not-so-spacious room, all kinds of tables and chairs were polished shiningly, almost reflecting one’s face. Various bright flowers were placed around the tables and chairs in the house. The spectacular scene made Xia Yuqing wonder if her Third Senior Brother had moved the entire garden in.
At the end of the flowers, a slender young man was lying gracefully on the chaise couch, holding a large bronze mirror in his hand. Looking at it, he was posing in a variety of unusual poses. He couldn’t help admiring what he saw as if he saw something incredible.
“…” Third Senior Brother, are you sure you are here to be a handyman and not to be a courtesan?
Xia Yuqing looked at everything in front of her, only feeling her beautiful vision before entering the door collapsing sadly.
How could she believe that there was a possibility of a cure for the narcissistic and critically ill patient of her Third Senior Brother?
There is a saying, “It’s easy to change the country, but it’s hard to change one’s nature.” How could her Third Senior Brother be able to reach Nirvana and become a Buddha? Ha ha ha ha ha…
Hua Nong Ying on the couch heard the movement and reluctantly retracted his gaze from the bronze mirror. He turned his head to look at Xia Yuqing and smiled: “Little Royal Sister, you are here, long time no see. How have you been recently?”
“…” Not good, not good at all, especially after seeing you, my whole person does not feel good.
The appearance of a narcissist with its full aura set against the blooming flowers on the side was like a lonely courting peacock in the zoo. Xia Yuqing finally calmed down and her eyebrows trembled. She had goosebumps all over.
“Third Senior Brother, have you heard of Narcissus?”
“Narcissus? Who is that? I’ve never heard of him, this name sounds strange, is it a foreigner? Little Junior Sister, how can you know a foreigner? Did this foreign martial arts master bother you?”
“I don’t know if he is a martial arts master, I only know that in some way he resembles you Third Senior Brother.”
“In which way?” Hua Nongying narrowed his eyes, a trace of interest.
“He likes looking in the mirror. Narcissus looks in the mirror…” Well, looking at himself reflected on the water is also like looking in the mirror. “Because he is so good-looking, he especially likes looking in the mirror at himself. Finally, he looked so much he killed himself, hahaha…”
After Hua Nongying heard Xia Yuqing’s words, he looked puzzled and said, “Is it funny?”
Xia Yuqing was stunned: “Isn’t it funny?”
“…” The two of them stared at each other, speechless for a while.
Just when Xia Yuqing thought that Hua Nongying was about to be angry, she suddenly heard Hua Nongying ask very curious: “Does Narcissus look good?”
“…” Third Senior Brother, is your focus that?! Why did I see a blazing fighting spirit in the eyes of Third Senior Brother? Sure enough… the world of narcissists is really hard to understand!
“He should be…no.” Xia Yuqing coughed slightly and decided not to continue to struggle with this issue. Just about to step forward, Hua Nongying said in a low voice: “Don’t move!”
Xia Yuqing’s feet froze in the air stiffly. She raised her head and looked at Hua Nongying in amazement, and said with horror: “Wha…what’s the matter?”
“Little Junior Sister, you just came back from outside, right? There is a lot of dirt on those shoes, please change your shoes before you come in!”
“…” The astonishment on Xia Yuqing’s face instantly turned into red crossroads. If there was a knife by her side, she surely would have it enter that clean freak with it coming out red!
“Ahem, Miss Xia…” Just as Xia Yuqing’s face was almost mad, she heard a whisper from behind.
As soon as she turned her head, she saw Ye Sheng holding a pair of pure white satin boots standing behind her with an embarrassed look. Obviously, he had expected such a situation early on.
“…” Third Senior Brother, how deeply rooted is your image of cleanliness!
Cursing, Xia Yuqing put on her boots obediently. Since that someone was her saviour, she will bear it!
Xia Yuqing changed her shoes with a cold face. As soon as she stood still, she saw Hua Nongying staring at her clothes almost critically, then groaned again: “Little Junior Sister, your clothes… ”
Xia Yuqing clearly heard the string in her mind called rationality… break.
She lifted her foot and stepped firmly into the room. Before Hua Nong Ying could halt her, she rushed in and finally sat on the couch under Hua Nong Ying’s body. She rubbed hard, wishing to touch her clothes all over it.
“…” This was Ye Sheng and Hu You who were shocked.
“…” This was Hua Nongying who was suddenly mad and shocked by his little Junior Sister.
After a while, Hua Nongying returned to his senses and looked at Xia Yuqing’s self-satisfied look with her head up high. He cleared his throat, “Well, Little Junior Sister, I just want to say that your clothes are well made. The materials are excellent and look pretty.”
“Pu…” Now Hu You, who was standing at the door, couldn’t help but snort. He clutched the clothes on Ye Sheng’s shoulders and covered his mouth. Suffocating himself, his face flushed and his whole body was trembling.
Xia Yuqing then knew that she had misunderstood him. Her face was slightly red. She changed the subject embarrassingly: “Senior Brother, what are you doing with so many flowers and plants in this room? So many smells, are you not afraid of being overwhelmed.”
Fortunately, she was not allergic to pollen, otherwise, she would have fallen on the ground with these flowers.
“Don’t you think it looks very beautiful, that they are very suitable for this person?”
“…” No, I don’t think so at all, I just feel flustered! Xia Yuqing looked silently at the person standing among the flowers. Sure enough, narcissism is a disease and it must be cured!
“Moreover, isn’t it a saying, dying under a peony flower, you will also be happy as a ghost (The consequence is death at most, so might as well do what will make one happy and content)? Being such a blessed person like this one, if not these famous flowers, what else can match myself?”
Hua Nongying raised his head slightly, making Xia Yuqing startled as if she saw peacock tails blooming behind him.
“…” Who will defeat this evildoer who is only doing harm to the world? Are you really a peacock who is in heat anytime, anywhere?
Xia Yuqing, who was blinded by someone, made a decisive decision. If she continues to stay in this place, her mind will break down!
“Well, Third Royal Brother, I have something I want to ask you.”
“What’s the matter?” Hua Nongying asked in a low voice as he walked to the couch.
“Is the death of my Fifth Royal Brother related to your assassin house?”
“!” Ye Sheng and Hu You, who were standing outside the door, were stunned at the same time, the smile on their faces froze in an instant. There was an ‘uh-oh’ cry in their hearts. How could this girl still remember this?!
Hua Nong Ying raised his eyebrows slightly when he heard the words. He was silent for a moment, and chuckled softly: “Little Junior Sister, why would you ask this?”
Xia Yuqing stared at the change of expression on his face. She pursed her lips, and stretched her finger to a distance to Hu You: “That young man over there. I saw him once when I was in An Wang’s Mansion. At that time, he was working as an errand boy in An Wang’s Mansion and gave me directions. Even though he pointed me to the wrong direction in the end and led me to a ditch, because of this, I have a deep impression of him. I am sure that it must be him! It didn’t take long for him to show me the way, so my Fifth Royal Brother…”
“Oh? That’s why Little Junior Sister is suspecting…Whether An Wang was killed by the people in this lord’s assassin’s house or if it was this person who instructed them to kill?”
“Uh…” Xia Yuqing was surprised by Hua Nongying’s straightforward words. Choking, she looked at Hua Nongying’s smile that was not a smile. She suddenly remembered that the person in front of her was not only her Third Royal Brother but also the famous killer in the assassin house in Jiang Hu. He wouldn’t…
Hua Nongying ignored Xia Yuqing. Instead, he turned his head and glanced at the lively two people at the door, and sneered: “How long do you want to stay here?”
Ye Sheng and Hu You became stiff. They laughed twice and dropped the sentence “The Lord and Miss Xia can talk slowly, we will not bother you guys, we will say goodbye first.” They quickly turned around and ran away.
Xia Yuqing looked at the two people fleeing. She opened her mouth but failed to keep them from leaving. Seeing that only herself and Hua Nongying were left in the room, Xia Yuqing burst into tears completely.
Hey, come back, I can’t bear it alone, don’t leave me here alone!
“Little Junior Sister…” Hua Nongying’s clear and magnetic voice echoed softly in the room, like a whisper between lovers, very bewitching.
But the voice when falling into Xia Yuqing’s ears was not as beautiful. It was like… a reminder that made her hair stand up! QAQ
“Third …… Third …… Third Senior Brother, if there are words to say, we can talk it out nicely. The things earlier, if you don’t want to mention it, it is fine. I don’t want to know, not at all……”
Oooooo, why does she always get out of a tiger’s den to enter a wolf’s den? ! Sure enough, curiosity killed the cat! This cheap mouth!
“Little Junior Sister, you…” Hua Nongying smiled and slowly stretched out his hand towards Xia Yuqing…
“!” Xia Yuqing looked at the approaching hand, then her eyes widened. In the end, Third Royal Brother had abandoned their fellow Brother-Sister relationship and is going to shut her up. Ahhh…. Ultra Seme Lord, help!
“Little Junior Sister, we’re here… for you.” Yun Zhongyue rushed to the forefront. As soon as he rushed through the door, he saw the scene inside and was petrified on the spot.
When the people who followed saw, their faces changed. They hurriedly moved forward, and after seeing the scene in the house, they were all petrified on the spot.
On the simple and gorgeous couch, a delicate young boy in plain yet elegant men’s clothing was forced under the body of a peerless beautiful man dressed in black. Their faces were no more than five centimetres apart. In fact, the beautiful man who was pressing on top had his white slender fingers resting on the young boy’s neck, as if gently stroking the skin of the young boy with great intimacy.
The two people who were close to each other appeared ambiguous and intimate under the reflection of the blooming flowers on the side. This made it difficult for people not to think crooked.
The people who witnessed this amazing scene stiffened their necks and looked back, facing someone who was billowing black smoke behind them and smiling brightly. There was a chill down their back. They swallowed with difficulty and thought with horror: Does this count as being caught having an affair…? !
