Chapter 81 Feng Qi Yun Yong* Part 6

<Previous Chapter<Table of Contents>Next Chapter>

“…There was an outstanding son who was born with a burly appearance and a handsome temperament. He was twenty-six twenty-seven years old. This person’s surname was Dongmen, and one word for name, Qing…”

Yan Changqing read a few paragraphs, and realized the “Yin Ping Mei” in his hand seemed to be a novel about worldly affairs, and was all about the life of ordinary people. He followed the scholars and teachers in the palace since he was a child, and read the Four Books and Five Classics, History and all, but he had never read a book that described ordinary people in this way. 

But after reading for a while, he vaguely felt that something was wrong with the book. 

“Dongmen Qing saw that he had been drinking, and his face was red and white, red lips and a mouthful of glutinous rice teeth. So… so…” 

Yan Changqing suddenly closed the book: “I’m not reading it anymore!” 

Helian Rongchuan looked at him with a smile: “Why won’t you read it? I’m still waiting to hear.” 

With his smile, Yan Changqing was sure that he had been deceived by the big liar Helian Rongchuan again.

He angrily glared at him: “Senseless!” 

“Senseless? I think it’s interesting. Well, if you won’t read it, I will read it.” Helian Rongchuan sneered, grabbed the book, opened it, and deliberately elongated his voice. 

He vividly recited: “So Dongmen Qing’s excessively lewd heart arose. He put that young man in his arms, and the two kissed, his lips savouring his tongue. The young man’s mouth held the smell of fragrant tea and sweet-scented osmanthus cakes, and the scent of his body was of sweet-smelling grass. Dongmen Qing lifted his clothes with his hands and touched…” 

It was a very fragrant description. 

Yan Changqing only listened to the first two sentences, and his cheeks burned red. He frowned, unable to bear it, he got up and wanted to leave. Unexpectedly, Helian Rongchuan suddenly exerted his strength, and the uninjured arm suddenly stopped Yan Changqing’s waist, threw him onto the bed, and pressed him firmly with his legs. 

Yan Changqing inevitably met Helian Rongchuan’s eyes. He suddenly found that Helian Rongchuan’s amber-like eyes were burning with a dim light, as if a tiger that had been hungry for a long time was staring at the delicious prey close at hand, pondering how to eat it. 

Yan Changqing’s heart skipped a beat, and he said nervously, “You, what are you doing!”

“Nothing.” Helian Rongchuan’s voice was hoarse, as if he was trying to suppress something. After a long while, he suddenly lowered his head and gently blew into Yan Changqing’s meticulous neckline. 

Yan Changqing: … 

It was warm and numbing, making him tremble uncontrollably. 

“Really sensitive.” 

Helian Rongchuan chuckled. He was so close to him that they were nose to nose and their breaths were intertwined. Yan Changqing’s whole body was tense, he didn’t even dare to move, because if he turned his head slightly, it would stick to Helian Rongchuan’s lips. 

Gentle and domineering lips… 

All the vivid memories rushed into his mind in an instant. Yan Changqing vaguely knew what might happen tonight, his face turned pale, his heartbeat was beating like a drum, and there was slight sweat on his forehead. 

He turned away from Helian Rongchuan’s burning eyes, his mouth dry. 

The breeze hit, and the translucent veil moved with the wind, covering the two of them like flowing moonlight. Everything was quiet, as if there were only the two of them in the world. 

After several pulls, Yan Changqing’s loose hair band was completely loosened, and his satin-like black hair spread out. 

So soft and so cold. 

Yan Changqing was nervous and apprehensive, and his whole body was tense like a cat with its hair standing upright which completely aroused Helian Rongchuan’s desire to conquer. He could feel his blood boiling, screaming to be allowed to vent.

But he heard Yan Changqing say, no. 

That’s right, his Changqing was obviously not ready. 

If he wanted to taste the most delicious wine, he had to endure the longest wait. 

Helian Rongchuan sighed silently in his heart, and smiled helplessly again. He gently lifted the scattered hair on Yan Changqing’s forehead slightly wet with sweat, and said: “Just kidding. Don’t be afraid, I just want to hug you.” 

Saying that, he laid beside Yan Changqing, put his arms around Yan Changqing’s waist gently, and pressed against Yan Changqing’s ear: “Go to sleep. I’m not going to do anything. ” 

After that, he really closed his eyes and fell asleep. 

But Yan Changqing couldn’t fall asleep after being so troubled. In the darkness, he watched Helian Rongchuan for a long time, until Helian Rongchuan fell asleep and his chest rose and fell evenly. In the dim light, his brow bone, the bridge of his nose and his lower jaw formed a very handsome profile line, like the outline of a precipitous mountain.

Yan Changqing looked at him like this, with mixed feelings in his heart. A little relieved, a little uneasy, and a trace of inexplicable melancholy. 

Helian Rongchuan hugged him too tightly, and Yan Changqing suddenly didn’t know how to break free. 

It seems that he had no strength to break free, and it seems that he was reluctant to break free. 


On the second day, Helian Rongchuan slept until the sun was high in the sky before he woke up. When he reached out to touch, the bed was already empty. Although he was still recuperating, Yan Changqing still strictly followed his outrageous work and rest habits in the army. 

His bodyguard Jiu Jin was sneaking in through the small door, holding a delicate five-layer food box in his hand. Seeing Helian Rongchuan in high and good spirits, he immediately shyly greeted him with a smile: “Congratulations, Your Highness, you have finally succeeded!” 

The corner of Helian Rongchuan’s mouth twitched slightly: “What do you mean succeeded? I’m not a thief!” 

Jiu Jin thought to himself, you are indeed not a thief, but a big liar. 

But he only said: “Looking at His Highness’s expression, last night must have shown your entire glory!” 

Helian Rongchuan threw away the handkerchief he wiped his hands with and while wrapping his gauze again, he smiled: ” You guessed it wrong. Last night, I didn’t show my greatness, but I did a Liu Xiahui again.” (Liu Xiahui = very well known nice/appropriate person who wouldn’t touch a woman even when she sat herself on his lap)

Jiu Jin opened his mouth in disbelief. For that cold beauty, His Second Highness has spent a lot of blood, tears, and money. Yet now that it had finally been placed in front of his mouth, he did not eat? 

“Your Highness, are you joking? With servant’s clumsy eye even I am able to see what you are thinking about day and night.” 

“This is called a strategy. Do you understand?” 

Jiu Jin opened his mouth and shook his head. 

Helian Rongchuan said: “Why did I keep such a stupid head like you! I ask you, if you really want someone, what would you do?” 

Jiu Jin said: “What else can I do? I will tell her that I like her and ask if they are willing to follow me.”

Helian Rongchuan helplessly placed his palm on his forehead: “So stupid. No wonder you are stil a bachelor. Today, this king is in a good mood, so I will teach you some skills. Well, if you meet someone you really like, especially the kind of person who is cold and refuses people from thousands of miles away, you must not go directly to confess. You must pay attention to strategy. The first trick, I call it “moisturizing things silently”. That is, you have to think about him everywhere, love and protect him everywhere and be kind to him everywhere. When you see him encountering difficulties, you must help him. But this kind of good act should be quiet, it seems like you are giving it to him silently, but you must let him feel it. Because this kind of ‘good’ is more touching than being nice to him with a big fanfare. Do you understand?” 

Jiu Jin nodded, silently taking out a small notebook to memorize. 

“The second trick is called ‘hold on to the green hills and don’t relax’. Since you really like the person, you have to follow them shamelessly, regardless of whether they dislike it or not. You have to be at their beck and call and pretend to be their grandson, you know? However, this second trick depends on your appearance. With your appearance, you may be chased and beaten by others. But I don’t have to be afraid of that.” 

Jiu Jin cried and said, “What should I do? Your Highness, this servant doesn’t want to be chased and beaten.” 

“There is also a third trick, “Loosen the reins to grasp them better”, which should be used in conjunction with the second trick. Think about it. If you are stubbornly obsessed with your sweetheart every day, you’re courteous and seducing them with all kinds of things, but suddenly one day, you don’t seduce him. You sit without causing trouble, don’t look sideways, say, what will happen to your sweetheart?” 

Jiu Jin frowned and thought for a while, and said, “They will feel lost.” 

Helian Rongchuan said: “Hey! You are finally enlightened! If they are lost, it will prove that the person has you in his heart. At this time, you can go make a move again. This half-willing and half-unwilling flavour is much better than using force. That’s true love, tsk tsk…” 

Jiu Jin was hit with an epiphany, then nodded again and again. It turned out that he had been misunderstanding his Second Highness. Although his Second Highness was particularly shameless in chasing after that cold beauty, he was also tactical!

It was the tactic, being ‘shameless’! 

He must study hard! 

As the servant and master were talking, Wei Jin stepped into the door with the medicine box. He first respectfully saluted them, then said, “Your Royal Highness, I heard that you were in severe pain yesterday, and you suffered two hundred and fifty needles? I wasn’t at ease hearing that, so I came here to take a look to see if you need a few more needles.” 

Today, he was wearing a snow-white robe and gray robe, the imperial doctor’s official uniform. But he couldn’t help but turn up the corners of his mouth, revealing his bad intentions of teasing.     

Helian Rongchuan couldn’t help shivering when he heard the word “needle”, and said, “Okay, you all came to see me suffer and have fun, huh? Be careful that I might remove the plaque of your doctor’s benevolence.” He waved his hand: “You came just in time, Jiu Jin, you go and call Changqing to come back, and the three of us will have breakfast together.”     

Wei Jin waved his hand: “I’ve already had breakfast a long time ago. Today, I came by because I was on the way to deliver a little letter.” Speaking of this, he took out a letter.     

Helian Rongchuan was wondering who had nothing to do but to write to him. But when he got the envelope, his expression suddenly changed.     

“Who gave this letter to you?”     

Seeing that Helian Rongchuan had a strange expression, Wei Jin said, “The messenger claimed to be from Monan and said that the letter was addressed to me. Inside it was written Qinchuan’s He Li’s name. I had thought that he had missed me. But when I opened the envelope, I found that it was a letter within a letter. Inside the big envelope was a small envelope with General Yan’s name written on it. I didn’t dare open it, so I rushed over and brought it here. What, is there something wrong?”

Helian Rongchuan restrained his expression and said lightly, “There’s nothing wrong. Maybe it’s just that Qinchuan old friend wanted to send it to Changqing, but he was afraid that he wouldn’t be able to find his whereabouts, so he sent it to you.” 

Wei Jin nodded suspiciously. Seeing that Helian Rongchuan seemed to have something on his mind and didn’t want to talk about it, he could only smear oil on the soles of his feet and say goodbye. 

Helian Rongchuan looked at the letter, his eyes were cold, and his heart was full of suspcion. In order to prevent Yan Changqing from being seen in Dongyun, he had always carefully protected Yan Changqing’s identity and whereabouts. Except for the closest guards, no one knew that Yan Changqing had come to Dongyun. 

And the people of Qinchuan, except for He Li, the chief, they all thought that Yan Changqing was returning to the capital to resume his life. 

Who would have known that Yan Changqing was actually in Dongyun? Why did he write to him, what did they want to do? 

Helian Rongchuan was silent for a while with a cold face. He found a thin knife, and carefully cut open the envelope – if it was just a normal letter from He Li, he can still seal it up. 

But as soon as the letter was opened, Helian Rongchuan’s eyes were covered with a layer of frost. 

The letter was indeed written by He Li. But it wasn’t a letter to check on one’s well being, but a letter for help. 

The Emperor of Yan, Murong Xiu, was besieged by the Beirong army in Monan, unable to advance or retreat, and was in urgent need of rescue. 

Helian Rongchuan held the letter tightly, and his handsome face showed distinct anger and viciousness. It was a bit hideous. 

He hadn’t yet settled the issue with the dog emperor for the tragic situation in Qixia Village and the incident in Qinchuan City that had caused so much humiliation to the person he held in his heart. Yet that dog emperor, does he want to take Changqing away again?

What if he was besieged? He deserved it! It would perfectly avenge the blood debt of Qixia Village! 

Yan Changqing was the one who Helian Rongchuan saved with his own blood and his own life. Murong Xiu wanted to take Yan Changqing away with just a thin letter? What does Murong Xiu want? To have Yan Changqing fall into the danger of the sword again? ! Or did Murong Xiu have some other intent? 

Although they never really directly fought, Helian Rongchuan could keenly feel that Murong Xiu’s thoughts on Yan Changqing obviously surpassed that of a ruler and a minister. 

Helian Rongchuan pondered for a moment, walked to the candlelight, and burned the letter without hesitation. 

The bright flames made his face gloomy and mocking. 

Oh, Murong Xiu, don’t even think about it.
