<Previous Chapter<Table of Contents>Next Chapter>

Liu Yixiang looked back with a stiff face. She silently looked at the sky and tried to hypnotize herself: I saw it wrong, I saw it wrong. I must have been thinking too much and now have hallucinations, I saw it wrong! Qing Jiejie has gone back to Ye Kingdom with Royal Cousin, how could she still be here? This doesn’t make sense!

Liu Yixiang patted her little heart secretly and looked up cautiously. After realizing that the few people were still standing on the stage and she didn’t see anything wrong, she instantly felt that she was not well!

Especially after she found out that it was not only her, but there were also the other people around her, it made it even worse!

On the other side, Xia Mingxuan, who was pretending to be a snake with the officials, just looked up and saw a little white rabbit who seemed to have gone astray in the middle of the stage and his eyes suddenly tightened.

Suddenly he jumped up from the dining table, and his right hand accidentally knocked over the wine glass on the side, making a sound.

“Fourth Highness!” The little palace maid next to her exclaimed and looked at Xia Mingxuan with a pitiful expression. It was the aunt who spoke about flying from the branches and becoming a phoenix through this dinner.

The officials who were invited to this evening banquet were all talented people. Thus when they saw Xia Mingxuan not have the gentlemanly demeanor he had shown in front of everyone before and did not say a few words of comfort to the little palace maid, instead, his face turning slightly gloomy, they knew how unhappy he was at this moment. He hurriedly scolded, “What’s wrong with you? You are so careless!”

Only then did the palace maid notice Xia Mingxuan’s strangeness. Her face changed slightly, and she hurriedly knelt on the ground and begged for mercy: “Your Highness, forgive me, Your Highness, please spare my life.”

Although Xia Mingxuan knocked down the wine glass just now, for these palace servants, a master’s words is the imperial edict. If their master said that it was their fault, they had to acknowledge it, even if they didn’t want to acknowledge it!

Xia Mingxuan was too lazy to entangle with these people. All his attention at the moment was already attracted to the person on the stage; he just replied to the palace maid impatiently: “Go away!” 

The palace maid raised her head in surprise as if she was in a dream. When she woke up, there were tears in her eyes. She got up and left with joy and loss.

The officials on the side were relieved when they saw that the palace maid was gone, then they saw Xia Mingxuan’s eyes fixed on the high platform not far away. Seeing this, they immediately understood something and smiled: “Your Highness, what do you think of these female entertainers tonight?”

Xia Mingxuan raised his eyebrows and glanced at the official who spoke, a cold light flashed across his eyes, but it was not visible at all on his face. The corners of his lips curled slightly: “They’re okay.”

The official heard that and became a little excited knowing that he had found the right path. Because of Xia Mingxuan’s own outstanding appearance, his standards were not ordinary, so being able to get a sentence like that at this time, it can be seen that Xia Mingxuan was really moved.

After figuring this out, the man continued his efforts: “Right, these female entertainers today are all good looking, especially the one in the middle, look at that beautiful face… Speaking of which, Your Fourth Highness has been alone in your mansion for so many years, you don’t even have a person, right? If you really like them, you might as well mention it to the Imperial Concubine, and bring them back to the mansion to be a concubine. I believe that the Imperial Concubine will not mind.” 

Xia Mingxuan didn’t respond. He took a sip from the wine glass in front of him, raised his lips and said with a small smile under the expectant gaze of the official, “Sir’s words are reasonable, this prince will consider it.” 

But before that, this prince will finish you off first! Xia Mingxuan raised his head and glanced at the person on the stage. It was true that he wanted someone, but he definitely didn’t want that person to be his own concubine, but his wife, a wife that would stay with him for the rest of his life. He will not let anyone to covet or even insult that person, not anyone! 

When the official heard Xia Mingxuan’s answer, he was complacent, but he didn’t know that just because of these words, he was about to be killed. 

The incident on Xia Mingxuan’s side was just a small episode, but Xia Mingyuan, who knew the inside story, broke out in a cold sweat. They were sure that Xia Mingxuan had already discovered Xia Yuqing, and according to his thoughts about Xia Yuqing, this situation was not optimistic.

Someone else who also discovered this besides Xia Mingyuan was Imperial Concubine Roujia, who was on the edge of the throne. Imperial Concubine Roujia had been following Xia Mingxuan’s every move since she was seated. At this moment, she saw that Xia Mingxuan was a little different, so she followed his line of sight and saw someone at a glance. Her face changed suddenly. D*mn it, why is it that little bitch again? !

Also because of the abnormality on Xia Mingxuan’s side, Xia Haotian, who was calm in the main seat, also discovered some clues.

After seeing the girl on the stage who was dressed in women’s clothes and looked exactly like her Mother, Xia Haotian’s heart lake, which had been silent for many years, had a storm set off.

This was the first time Xia Haotian had seen Xia Yuqing wearing women’s clothes. Wearing men’s clothes, she was six to seven points similar to her biological Mother, but now wearing women’s clothes, it can be said that she was exactly the same.

Since Xia Yuqing was born, in order to hide from others’ eyes, he had to hold back. Besides carrying her while she was a baby a few times and secretly looking at her from a distance, he couldn’t even go see her on the day she was married. 

Now seeing Xia Yuqing on stage, he truly realized that their child had truly grown up. It’s just that this kid shouldn’t be here! 

Xia Haotian lowered his head and looked down to face the resentful appearance of Imperial Concubine Roujia’s gnashing teeth. His face darkened, and a cold light flashed across his eyes. 

“Shoot, how did those girls end up there?” Shao Zitang, who had just turned his attention from those imperial guards, saw the few people who were in the limelight going up to the stage at an unknown time. He almost didn’t care about his image and foul language burst out. 

Feng Tingye heard the movement, and turned his head to see Xia Yuqing standing on the high platform, her eyes wandering everywhere. She occasionally looked towards her side with a guilty conscience, finally he couldn’t help but let out a sigh: Ai Fei, you can really bring pleasant surprises to me from time to time! Although this surprise is much more surprise than pleasant. But, forget it, now is not the time to discuss this, for now…

Feng Tingye and Shao Zitang looked at each other, then he silently raised his hand and took out a small thing from his waist and put it in his ear. He heaved a sigh of relief, fortunately, he brought it out.

Finding the traces of Feng Tingye and seeing their movements, Liu Yixiang and Xia Mingyuan, who found that they had forgotten their equipment: “…”

Little did they know that their appearance had already disturbed a pool of spring water on the side. Xia Yuqing, who caused everyone to have their own ulterior motive, was holding a guqin in her hand with a blank face. To play or not to play, that is the big question.

Yan Tingfang, who was holding a pipa on the other side, looked at Cui Er, who was holding a flute not far away, with a calm face, and couldn’t help but admire: “I didn’t expect that Miss Cui Er is not only strong in martial arts, but also in the art of palace music, really, it’s admirable.”

Cui Er pursed her lips and glanced at Yan Tingfang, and said indifferently: “Miss Yan has misunderstood, this slave has never learned such things.”

“Then you…” How can you be so calm?

Cui Er seemed to see what Yan Tingfang was thinking, and kindly replied: “Miss Yan, don’t be nervous, as long as Niang Niang is here, we are just here for the numbers, and no one will notice us.”


Just now hiding under the stage in case of an emergency, Su Wuduan almost laughed on the spot when he heard Cui Er’s words. Wife, do you want to be so truthful!

Yan Tingfang, who didn’t know the power of Xia Yuqing’s magical sound, was startled. Knowing that Xia Yuqing’s qin skills were excellent, she couldn’t help but look forward to it.

Seeing her like this, Cui Er became a little wicked. She smiled and said, “Speaking of which, since long before, Niang Niang had always hoped that one day she would be able to compose a song with Miss Yan, but I didn’t expect it to be happen like a mistake today. Under this circumstance…it has come true.”

“…” Wife, you’ve being wicked again! Su Wuduan hid in the audience and shook his head helplessly. Although he had been running with Cui Er for so long, d*mn, this kind of natural blackness from time to time really catches him off guard!

Sure enough, the expression on Yan Tingfang’s face became filled with anticipation: “Then let’s play something together?”

“Uh…you can just play casually.” How can I tell you that no matter how good you play, it’s in vain. As long as our Niang Niang is here, even the sounds of nature can be thrown into the ditch, not to mention… alas…

“Play casually?” She heard from a master who taught her music that some people who have reached the realm of perfection, even if they don’t have a score, can still be in good harmony with the ensemble. She didn’t expect that the Queen of Ye Kingdom who usually does things unexpectedly and plays cards out of common sense, would have such attainments in music. Sure enough, someone who can be protected by the Sixth Prince and His Royal Highness, and who is deeply favored by King Ye, how can she not be brilliant?

If Yun Xi was here at the moment and knew what Yan Tingfang was thinking, she would definitely be speechless and look up at the sky, sighing: “Sister Fang, you really think too much.”

Anyway, this beautiful misunderstanding was inevitable. Now, when Xia Yuqing touched the strings of the qin, Yan Tingfang found that the sound of nature that she had expected did not appear. All fell into an eerie silence in an instant.

The officials present were either stunned by the sudden magical sound, or they choked from the sip of wine that had just entered their throats and had no time to react.

The palace people who were carrying the dishes on the plate stopped their movements one by one. Their mouths widened, and they didn’t even realize that the things in their hands had tipped over.

According to the people who “survived” that day, they didn’t actually feel much at the time, they just felt that their heads were not ready to take a beating, and when they came back to their senses, the world seemed to have turned gray. Hey, that kind of feeling is simply spiritual destruction, human destruction! They thought that listening to the ensemble of the young master and the third princess was enough to cause them to suffer, but they did not expect that there was always a bigger sky outside, and there were people even more extreme to have such a divine song in this world.

As for Liu Yixiang and Xia Mingyuan, there was no need to mention, when they heard this muffled sound, the first thing they felt was: tsk tsk tsk, as expected of Qing Jiejie (Little Royal Sister), after we haven’t seen each other for a few days, your qin skills have improved again! It has evolved from a brain-piercing magic sound to a murder weapon. This is a whole new level of respect!

The second feeling was: Motherf*cker, at this time, they actually forgot their equipment, how can they forget their equipment? ! They’re going to die!

The most pitiful thing was the birds that were migrating in the sky. They heard from their seniors who were lucky enough to return last time that their group of seniors died heroically in such a place last time. They had been flying around this place since then. They thought that with this migration, they would not come back in a short time, and after that, they had never heard of any murders in this place.

So they took a short-cut, taking a chance to fly here…

The result was this, one fatal hit, and the evening was not guaranteed. With a scream, they fell straight from the night sky, pitter pattering down.

Just like this, without Xia Yuqing’s awareness, another country’s birds and beasts suffered a catastrophic annihilation.

This bloody lesson teaches everyone once again that it is not just people, but animals as well, that you shouldn’t be greedy for petty gain! It’s not worth it!

As for Yan Tingfang, as early as the moment the guqin uttered a sound, her entire body was inevitably petrified. What is this sound? Is the guqin really something that can make this sound? Isn’t this kind of abnormal sound beyond the realm of string music? Is this rational?

Congratulations to Xia Yuqing for once again using her unique magical sound to drive an innocent little girl who had good thoughts about music to crazy, congratulations, congratulations…

With Xia Yuqing’s ignorant array of magical sound, everyone present only felt that 10,000 grass-mud horses (f*cks) were rushing through their hearts, but this time it was just the beginning…

A crisp sound pulled everyone back from the abyss of h*ll, and also let Xia Yuqing on the high platform have a rare chance to stop fiddling with the strings before her fingers got too happy.

However, no one could even breathe a sigh of relief when someone discovered the true face of the crisp sound.

It turned out to be the group of dancers who were thrown into the ravine by Xia Yuqing’s qin music. They could not carry such a heavy burden, slipped and fell into a pile. Unfortunately, this caused their plan of assassinating ia Haotian to be revealed as a few daggers fell out.

“…” The officials who discovered this and the dancers who died before they triumphed stared at each other. Just about to scream, suddenly there was a loud commotion not far away. 

Everyone looked at the sound, but saw that the trees beside the banquet were shaking like crazy, and then, in full view of the crowd, like fruit dropping from a dense tree trunk, a few figures fell out. It was like a human pyramid stacked on the ground. 

The man in black who was the last to fall fell heavily on his friends. His face darkened, he stretched out his hand in the direction of Xia Yuqing tremblingly, and groaned in pleading: “Don’t… don’t play, pu…” 

Before he finished speaking, a mouthful of blood spurted wildly like a mist. After spraying, he fell on the person below and spat out a wisp of his ghostly soul. 

“…” f*ck that can happen too?! Everyone present collectively… stunned! 

“…” My Ai Fei is really a must-have for travel, a must-have for mosquitoes, insects, and assassins. With her by my side, those ministers really don’t have to worry about me being accidentally assassinated. → This is the shameless Ye Emperor of Ye Kingdom, Feng Tingye, who was not ashamed of someone’s magical sound, but proud of it. 

“…” How can that girl always do such unexpected things under such unexpected circumstances, and even the results are so unexpected! → This is Ye Country’s Shangshu, Shao Zitang, who didn’t know what to say. 

“…” What kind of halo is Little Royal Sister carrying behind her back, why is she able to create such a miracle that ordinary people might not be able to do in their entire life! →This is Xia Mingyuan, His Royal Highness the Crown Prince of Xia Kingdom, who doesn’t know whether to cry or laugh.

“…” Why did they inexplicably feel that these assassins are a bit pitiful? → These are the onlookers.

Wait, Assassin? ! The officials present did not know who was the first to report it, and exclaimed: “A….. assassin! Come, catch the assassin!”

The words startled thousands of waves and when they came out, the night banquet that was silent suddenly exploded.

Imperial Concubine Roujia also regained her senses. Remembering the true identities of those assassins, her face turned pale, and she looked at Xia Yuqing with resentment in her eyes., who was also stunned on the stage.

Then, as if thinking of something, she stood up and shouted, “Catch the assassin, catch the assassin! Arrest all those singers and dancers!”

As soon as Concubine Roujia said these words, Feng Tingye and the others knew what she was saying. Their eyes became slightly cold, and they all became defensive.

Seeing those imperial guards approaching Xia Yuqing step by step, Feng Tingye’s eyes were cold, he didn’t care whether his identity would be revealed, so he leaped onto the high platform, blocked in front of Xia Yuqing, and pulled out the Long Yuan from his waist. He looked around and said, “Who dares to touch her, first ask the sword in my hand.”

This time Xia Yuqing and the others recovered from their initial mistakes. Cui Er and Yan Tingfang rushed to Xia Yuqing immediately, guarding her back and looked forward with a defensive face. 

Those imperial guards had just woken up from this series of changes when they heard Imperial Concubine Roujia shout: “Are you all dead? Take down these traitors for Ben Gong!” 

Imperial Concubine Roujia shouted so excitedly that she didn’t realize that Xia Mingxuan, who was beside her, was staring at her with a cold face. 

Xia Mingyuan was also taken aback by Feng Tingye’s unconventional behavior. After reacting, he couldn’t help twitching the corners of his mouth. Sure enough, he stayed with Little Royal Sister for too long of a time and even a beast like Feng Tingye was assimilated. With such a challenge to people’s psychological endurance, have you considered the feelings of us bystanders? Is it enough for you two to be satisfied?

Even though he had a stomach full of complaints, his face was full of distress, but when he saw Xia Yuqing being surrounded, Xia Mingyuan stood up resignedly, took a deep breath, and said in a low voice, “Hold on! 

Imperial Concubine Roujia looked at the sound, and when she saw Xia Mingyuan, her eyes became a little gloomy in an instant: “Your Royal Highness, what are you doing? Why did you stop these imperial guards from catching the assassins?” 

Xia Mingyuan gritted his teeth and said, “Royal Concubine, things haven’t been checked out yet, it’s not right for you to be so aggressive, if you wronged a good person because of this, I’m afraid…” 

“Haven’t checked it out yet?” Imperial Concubine Roujia chuckled and turned to look at Xia Mingyuan aggressively. “These people have all brought murder weapons into the palace, what else do we need to investigate? Your Royal Highness defending these thieves like this, could it be that you have some ulterior ties with these assassins. ” 

“Royal Concubine…” Xia Mingyuan’s expression changed slightly. Feng Tingye on the stage also squinted his eyes slightly, this woman was determined to pull them all into the water. 

Xia Yuqing listened to the words of Imperial Concubine Roujia with a stunned expression on her face. To make such bogus accusations these days, it’s really too much! 

“What are you still doing?” As soon as Imperial Concubine Roujia turned around, she saw that those imperial guards who were overwhelmed by the dispute between the two, had not moved and her face sank. 

“Stop, no one is allowed to touch them when this prince is here! ” 


The imperial guards looked at each other in dismay, not knowing who to listen to. 

Imperial Concubine Roujia didn’t expect Xia Mingyuan to challenge herself at this time, her face turned completely dark, and just as she was about to say something, she suddenly heard a majestic voice behind her. 

“Shut up all of you, when was it up to the two of you in this palace to call the shots? I’m not dead yet!” 

As soon as Xia Haotian said this, Concubine Roujia and Xia Mingyuan’s expressions changed at the same time. They hurriedly turned around and knelt down:” Chen Qie (Er Chen) has overstepped, and asks the emperor (Royal Father) for forgiveness. “

“Your Majesty, Chen Qie was just thinking about the safety of Your Majesty. These people appeared at the same time as those assassins, so how do you know that they are not the same group. Besides, they entered the palace with sharp weapons, which is obviously a conspiracy, Your Majesty…” Imperial Concubine Roujia knelt on the ground and shouted affectionately. Unexpectedly, before she finished speaking, she received Xia Haotian’s cold eyes, and the following words were swallowed into her stomach.

Xia Haotian did not continue to pay attention to Imperial Concubine Roujia, but instead turned his attention to Feng Tingye on the stage, and said in a low voice, “King Ye?

Everyone thought that Xia Haotian was identifying him, but only Feng Tingye knew that he was asking himself in what capacity he was seeing him now.

Feng Tingye smiled and looked into Xia Haotian’s eyes and said, “Father-in-law, I haven’t seen you in a long time.” 

When Feng Tingye said this, everyone present was shocked. Xia Haotian only had the Third Princess, but he was not the one who took the Third Princess away last time. The emperor should have no other daughters, so why did he call the emperor his Father-in-law? Wait a minute, it seems that the emperor really had another little daughter who was married out a few years ago… The emperor called this young man… King Ye, could it be that the person in front of them was…

“King Ye? Then that girl is the current queen of Ye Kingdom, the little princess? No wonder…no wonder…” An official seemed to have thought of something, and muttered to himself in a low voice.

Xia Yuqing was stunned for a moment, and asked curiously: “No wonder?”

The man swallowed hard: “I had heard that the little princess’s qin skills were unparalleled in the world. When I saw it today, it really…cough, true.”

Everyone was stunned for a moment, suddenly remembering the magical sound that they had just heard, their faces instantly became a little ugly.

“How can it be so exaggerated?” Xia Yuqing scratched her cheek embarrassedly and whispered.


Not long after, Yan Tingfang and Cui Er, who were closest to Xia Yuqing, heard Xia Yuqing laugh and murmur again: “Sure enough, I shouldn’t have played the qin just now.”

“…” Miss Xia, what kind of trouble are you trying to make with your regretful tone? We’re exposed because of you, okay? Well, that’s true in essence, but what they just said is definitely not what you think!

Compared to Yan Tingfang’s helplessness, Cui Er just wanted to say: Niang Niang, you really think too much!

Xia Haotian glanced at Xia Yuqing, then moved his gaze to Feng Tingye, and said with a sneer, “King Ye came from a long way to give me such a gift as soon as we met?”

Feng Tingye’s expression did not change, and he said with a slight smile: “Father-in-law. Your words are too extreme. Ai Fei has been away from Xia Kingdom for a long time, and she misses Father-in-law very much. It happened that Ai Fei and I passed by the border of Xia Kingdom in the past few days. It was an accident. Father-in-law has a discerning eye, so you should have seen it clearly just now. If Ai Fei and I really intended to hurt you, why would I have worked so hard to force these assassins out with the sound of the qin? Our filial piety, how can Father-in-law not see it? Besides, Ai Fei is now the Queen of Ye, and she would be rushing to honor Father-in-law, so what reason would she hurt you?”

When Feng Tingye said this, all the officials present were stunned. They suddenly remembered that if Xia Yuqing’s qin sound had not forced these assassins out, the consequences would be unimaginable, so they already believed Feng Tingye’s words in their heart.

Cui Er and the others looked at Feng Tingye ramble nonsense with a speechless expression. Forcing the assassins out was simply an unforeseen accident. Your Majesty, is it good for you to talk nonsense with your eyes open? 

Xia Haotian glanced around at everyone and knew that this was a good opportunity to withdraw: “King Ye makes sense. Come on, take these assassins down and interrogate them strictly, and we will definitely find out who is the mastermind of this.”

Imperial Concubine Roujia watched the imperial guards approach the assassins step by step. When she heard that Xia Haotian’s tone was full of cover up for Xia Yuqing and the others, her face changed slightly. Her hands clenched suddenly, as if she had made a certain determination, and she suddenly sighed. Looking up, she stepped forward and said, “Of course this woman has a reason to murder the emperor! “

“!” Xia Yuqing and the others were startled. Looking at the slightly crazily distorted smile on the face of Imperial Concubine Roujia, a bad premonition arose. As expected…

“Because she is a remnant of the previous dynasty, and her body is flowing with the blood of the previous dynasty!”
