Chapter 46 Explanations are just cover ups!
Seeing the human pyramid shape created by the two, her inner thoughts let out a screech. Lu Rui was indeed correct! Men do say one thing and do another. How long has this been going on, to go as far as… to actually….
Ultra Seme Lord: Zhen does not like men and does not like women. To sum up, Zhen does not like men or women!
The little person in Xia Yuqing’s heart started to make 360 degree turns acting cute. Ultra Seme Lord, shouldn’t you honour what comes out of your mouth?
Seeing Xia Yuqing hidden dense glimmer, the corner of Feng tingye’s mouth twitched. He knew that a certain someone had started their delusions again. “Ai Fei, this isn’t what you think….”
Before he could finish speaking, the tiny eunuch who was being pressed down by Feng Tingye took advantage to the fact that Feng Tingye was distracted. With a shake of his hand that was being held down, he was able to struggle free of Feng Tingye’s binding. As quick as lightning, he rushed over to attack Feng Tingye’s face.
Alarmed, Feng Tingye reflexively leaned to the side to avoid the deadly strike. A silver needle covered with poison flew past his face missing him by a hair (forgot how the figurative speech goes), almost taking his life.
When the two saw this, they were frightened frozen. Gaining back their focus, they started shouting loudly: “Assassin, there’s an assassin!”
Taking advantage of the instant that Feng Tingye had drawn back, in an instant he had got up from the floor. Hearing Xia Yuqing’s sounds from the side, he narrowed his eyes and unexpectedly began to make a beeline for Xia Yuqing.
“Be careful, Lu Rui. Protect Consort Qing.” Feng Tingye upon seeing this, his complexion became different. At high-speed, he threw himself at the assassin.
Xia Yuqing was distracted and at a loss of what to do. Unaware of what was going on, a strong force came from behind directly causing her to stumble backwards.
Xia Yuqing took a glance. It was actually Cui Er who had placed herself in front of Xia Yuqing at who knew when, looking grave.
The tiny eunuch continued to viciously advance. When the silver needle within his hand was about to pierce Cui Er, somehow it landed on empty air. The assassin looked at the hand that was holding his wrist, surprised. In that instant of hesitation, Feng Tingye had already rushed over.
Using one hand to detain the tiny eunuch’s hand and drag him back, the other hand directly smashed into his chest. Receiving this strike, his face twisted backwards. But, he was once again dragged back in an instance. Unable to retaliate, he was rewarded another hand blade.
All these movements did not happen slowly; in fact, it all happened in one go. Seeing this, Xia Yuqing was stunned, her heart sighing faintly: A martial arts expert, this isn’t just something that is hanging outside everywhere!
With a loud bang, the Imperial troops rushing into the door rang at the same time as the tiny eunuch fell to the ground.
Everyone was surprised. Feng Tingye looked down at the young eunuch who fell to the ground with arrogance. He turned his head to look at Xia Yuqing: “As you can see, this little eunuch is an assassin.”
“…..” So what do you want to express, Your Majesty? Don’t you know that your appearance right now seems like you’re-admitting your guilt?
Xia Yuqing coughed and calmed herself: “Explanations are just cover ups.” Ultra Seme Lord, your move was so vicious, weren’t you just trying to silence him to keep your secret from being revealed?!
Feng Tingye’s eyebrows trembled, stooping over, he reached out to touch the side of the tiny eunuch’s face for a moment. Feeling like he found something, he pulled it hard tearing away to reveal a man’s skin mask that was brushed on.
Everyone fixed their eyes on the face to discover that the tiny eunuch had a beautiful delicate face, with dainty eyebrows. In fact, it…. was actually a woman!
After seeing the face of the tiny eunuch, Xia Yuqing revealed a distinct loss: “Ai, it was actually a woman who was in disguise.”
“….” Qing Fei Niang Niang, what’s with your disappointed tone?
“Hey, that’s not right. She’s a woman. Then earlier when His Majesty had hit the other person’s chest was that not….. ” Xia Yuqing let out an exclamation as if she had discovered a big secret. Then with a slight condemnation, she glared towards Feng Tingye’s direction.
“…..” Qing Fei Niang Niang, that’s not the point!
After hearing Xia Yuqing’s words, Feng Tingye couldn’t hold back, coldly shouting: “Someone come, take this assassin away, and… send Qing Fei Niang Niang back!”
The eunuch who was guarding the door heard the sound of explosion from the emperor, had originally been leaning on the pillar and dozing off. However, hearing the sudden loud shout, his body slipped, his eyes opened wide in puzzlement. Lifting his head up he looked up at the full moon of the sky, completely silent.
Tonight is doomed to be a noisy sleepless night.
“Niang Niang, what’s going on? How could His Majesty’s palace be attacked by an assassin again? No, in the future you need to stop running to the emperor’s palace with troubles or not. It’s too dangerous! Not even mentioning if you get knocked over, but if it was a scratch from a knife, even if it’s not on the face, a scar will be left on the body. Think about how much it’ll hurt! That would be just too terrible!”
Xia Yuqing looked helplessly at the sudden appearance of Lu Rui who was like the combination of a Dragon King and an old female servant and groaned. “You were the one who let me go.”
“Nu Bi allowed Niang Niang to go accompany His Majesty to go look at flowers underneath the moonlight. From discussing poetry to talking about the philosophy of life, I wanted you guys to confide in each other, to cultivate feelings. Not to let Niang Niang to accompany the emperor to depart forever, to be a pair of unfortunate love birds!” Lu Rui’s eyes widened, speaking forcefully and with justification. In the eyes of the little girl who had already developed a revolutionary friendship with Xia Yuqing, it was better to lose favour from the emperor than to lose her life.
“Okay, okay. Aren’t I fine now?” Xia Yuqing looked at Lu Rui’s who seemed like she wanted to continue to lecture her. Hurriedly she shifted the subject and said, “I’m hungry. Didn’t you say yesterday that you would make my favourite Dongpo pork shoulder? Could you go to the kitchen and see if it’s ready yet?”
Lu Rui looked at the pitiful look of anticipation on Xia Yuqing’s face, eventually sighing. “Okay, Nu Bi will go get it for Niang Niang.”
With his Lu Rui departing, Xia Yuqing let out a deep breath. Her strategically forced bitter expression swept away revealing a different expression completely. Her eyes burning with brightness she turned to Cui Er by her side and asked in a cold voice, “Who are you?”
Used to seeing Xia Yuqing’s unfettered and simple-minded appearance, then to see her sudden serious face, Cui Er was startled. “Niang Niang, what do you mean? Nu Bi is of course your personal maid, Cui Er. Niang Niang wouldn’t have taken a glimpse of the tiny eunuch that was by His Majesty’s side… and that Nu Bi was also….”
Xia Yuqing smiled: “That’s right. It was from seeing that tiny eunuch’s superior craftsmanship in hiding his appearance and ability to conceal himself… ”
Just when Cui Er was about to breathe a sigh of relief, she suddenly heard Xia Yuqing add one more sentence: “To discover that suddenly by my side… a martial arts master had sneaked in.”
