Si Tian Guan Chapter 101

Chapter 101 Accident

<Previous Chapter<Table of Contents>Next Chapter>


Qu Chenzhou sat on the steps, lowered his head, and watched his trousers rolled up, his knees were red, there was no blood, but the abrasions were serious.

He was so sad just now that he was in a trance for a while, and fell down the steps inadvertently.

“Zhongming, I’m so stupid,” he looked at the half-kneeling man applying medicine in front of him, and asked in a low voice, “I can’t do anything well, why do you still like me?” Liu Zhongming raised his head, and hurriedly looked away

Liu Zhongming looked up, then his heart lacking in confidence caused him to hastily avert his gaze, his voice became even smaller: “Is it …… because of my eyes …… are useful …… “

Someone flicked his forehead, and Liu Zhongming’s sigh made him even more uneasy.

“The little b*stard has grown up, and he knows how to doubt others. It’s not in vain for me to teach you so long.” “

“It’s not…I’m not doubting you…” His face flushed, “Because I…can’t do anything well… …”

After patiently applying the medicine, Liu Zhongming straightened his trousers before getting up and sitting next to him.

“Chenzhou Er, you are going back to live in the palace tomorrow, so be more cautious in what you do in the future.” 

“I will go to the palace to see you, but I can’t stay by your side all the time. People in the palace are unpredictable, so please remember to be cautious in your words and deeds.” 

“You need to always remember that you are smarter than ordinary people, and you are the most reliable official of the emperor. With the emperor as your backer, you don’t need to pay attention to heretics.” 

“Look up, remember what I taught you. As long as you are willing, anyone is a pawn in your hands. You have to believe in yourself.” 

“Just one thing, you are not allowed to divine for others in the palace. You can only divine for the same person once every five days. If the emperor asks, you can’t answer or what awaits you is bound to be a catastrophe.”

“You should know that accompanying a king is like accompanying a tiger, the more the emperor trusts you, the less he can tolerate your disobedience and betrayal.”

“Don’t divine for others, including me.” Liu Zhongming touched his head and wiped the tears from the corners of his eyes for him: “Chenzhou Er, protect yourself and don’t take risks for anyone.” 

His forehead received a soft kiss.

“Chenzhou Er, you are the best in the world. It is my honor, Liu Zhongming, to be favored by you.”

Actually… I am the lucky one.

Qu Chenzhou wanted to open his mouth to respond, but he felt like a heavy burden was on his body, he had difficulty breathing, he couldn’t speak, and he couldn’t even move his body.

Before he fully regained consciousness, he remembered.

After getting rid of the secret guards sent by Zhongming to protect him, he walked back through the streets and alleys, and before he got close to Mu Jingchen’s mansion, he sensed that someone was following him, and the distance was getting closer and closer.

He who was alone was the most delicious prey, and the predator who had been eyeing him for a long time must have been lying in wait.

He started running under the darkened sky. He panicked and the road ahead became more and more remote. Suddenly he heard Liu Zhongming’s familiar voice in his ear – this way. He almost didn’t even think about it, he just went straight into the alley, hurriedly followed by a pain in the back of the neck.

He didn’t know how long it had been since he woke up here.

There was no dazzling light in front of his eyes, and his eyes were covered by a black cloth. It seemed that the other party was also a little afraid of him.

The fingers tied behind him could touch the soft bed, the treatment was better than he imagined, he was not thrown directly on the ground.

Noticing that his breathing became heavy, someone soon pushed the door in, and the soft mattress sank down. The person sat on the edge of the bed, as if looking at him, but did not speak.

Instead, Qu Chenzhou took the initiative to speak: “This is a rare opportunity, don’t you want to talk about something?”

The man didn’t respond to his temptation.

“Could it be that Jiang Changshi* wants to torture me with just this method?” He sighed: “Why bother, I’m very hungry right now, can you let me have something to eat?”

* official position

“How do you know it’s me?” Jiang Xingzhi finally opened his mouth, looked at him for a moment, and then said with certainty: “You are not Qu Chenzhou.” 

“Did you catch the wrong person? It’s a pity, let me go.”

Jiang Xingzhi hesitated instead.

He had imagined Qu Chenzhou’s various reactions when he woke up, but he never thought that the other party would be so calm.

It shouldn’t be like this, the person he met on the street and later in the Qisheng Building, shouldn’t be this kind of person.

But he was also more aware that in the whole world, there was no other person who had such a pair of eyes.

As if impatient with his silence, Qu Chenzhou turned over with difficulty and faced Jiang Xingzhi: “Did Jiang Changshi meet your noble person when you were fifteen miles south from Changshui Town?” 

Jiang Xingzhi didn’t hesitate anymore, except for him and Qu Chenzhou, no third person knew this divination so clearly.

“Qu Chenzhou, I haven’t seen you for so long, yet you seem to be a different person. Liu Zhongming is a good teacher.” 

“People always change. Back then Jiang Changshi was miserable and desolate, but now you look like a person.” Qu Chenzhou wanted to turn over and sit up, but was pushed down on the bed again, and couldn’t help laughing: “Jiang Changshi was always smart, why do you still regard me as an enemy?”

Jiang Xingzhi heard something in his words: “What do you mean?”

“Of course I have an explanation, but I never like being forced to speak by others. If Jiang Changshi kneels down and begs me…” 

As soon as Qu Chenzhou finished speaking, he felt a coolness fall on his face, and the sharp point, the flying thorn he wore on his waist, now fell into the hands of another.

“What’s the explanation? Let’s listen to it.” Jiang Xingzhi dragged the flying thorn on his face, looked at the red mark, smiled and praised: “Du Quan was really reckless, he was willing to do something on this face. Qu Chenzhou, are you afraid of being ruined again?”

“What do you think?” Qu Chenzhou suddenly raised his chin, noticing that the flying thorn on his face was leaving quickly, he smiled: “I only thought you were a smart person, knowing that my most valuable thing is not this face—do you have the guts to blind my eyes?”

Jiang Xingzhi raised the flying thorn in time, still in shock.

He realized that something was wrong, Qu Chenzhou shouldn’t have such an aggressive look, but he didn’t know what went wrong.

“Jiang Xingzhi, if you want my explanation, it’s fine, but you have fallen into the Taishi Bureau, and you can’t do what I ask, so ask Fang Wuyang to come out.” 

Jiang Xingzhi remained calm and asked, “What did you say?”

“Don’t talk nonsense with me, Fang Wuyang!” Qu Chenzhou said it again, but also restrained his smile: “Would you like to guess, what I saw at Mu Jingchen’s place today?” 

The wooden door was almost pushed open in response. Before Jiang Xingzhi could make a sound to stop him, someone had strode into the door.

Qu Chenzhou only heard Jiang Xingzhi curse, and the bed creaked, and someone sat down heavily, grabbed his ankle, and bent down to him.

“Little Brother Qu,” the voice of Liu Zhongming still came out of the man’s mouth, with a frivolous smile: “You miss me that much?

“Young warrior Fang came so fast,” Qu Chenzhou’s knees were pressed to his chest and he couldn’t catch his breath, yet he was still straining to smile and asked, “Fang Wuyang, how about peaceful measures before using force?”

Jiang Xingzhi, who was pushed aside, shouted angrily: “Fang Wuyang! What are you doing?”

“What are you doing?” Zhongming’s voice responded back to him: “Jiang Xingzhi, put away your plan, can’t you see that you can’t get him at all? Why don’t you use my method to subdue him.” 

Qu Chenzhou sneered: “Fang Wuyang, I didn’t expect that you would be so cowardly, daring to borrow Shizi’s status to play with me.”

A hand rubbed against his lips, Fang Wuyang’s voice changed, and he sneered: “Zhongming taught you well.”

Jiang Xingzhi finally couldn’t bear it any longer: “Fang Wuyang! What time is it! You still want to play!” “

“Yeah, what time is it?” Qu Chenzhou interjected: “You took me away, thinking that if you hide me, you’ll be fine. Do you think the Shizi is a wooden man?”

Fang Wuyang raised his chin: “Don’t interrupt, finish what you just said, what was My Jingchen’s divination?” 

“The divination…” Qu Chenzhou slowly replied calmly: “The divination is easy to say, but… I will have to trouble Young Warrior Fang to find the Shizi and get my antidote.”

The last two words surprised the two of them, and Jiang Xingzhi squinted his eyes: “The antidote? Are you saying Liu Zhongming poisoned you?”

Qu Chenzhou’s ankle was put down, he finally let out a breath, and sighed: “If there is no antidote, Shuo Ye will erupt. If you really want to use me, you can’t just watch me die right? Or are you two more interested in a corpse?”

“Shuo Ye?”

“Yes, there is not much time left, maybe three days or…”

Fang Wuyang glanced at the sun that had risen above his head outside the window. He silently looked at Jiang Xingzhi calmly, and put his hand on Qu Chenzhou’s neck. 

“I only tell the truth, believe it or not,” Qu Chenzhou sighed: “If I knew that you were so afraid of the Shizi, why would I bother to gamble on the danger of poisoning?”

Jiang Xingzhi carefully observed his expression, then raised his eyebrows and asked, “Did you do it on purpose?”

They felt that something was wrong before. When arresting the person last night, Qu Chenzhou seemed like a fly without a head. Instead of calling for help, he ran further and further away.

“You want to use us to get rid of the Shizi’s control?” Fang Wuyang withdrew his hand and sneered, “But he treats you well, and even teaches you the method of breathing.” 

“Who wants to be a slave for life? The method of breathing or the body of freedom, if it were you, which one would you choose?” Qu Chenzhou asked him back: “Your Highness’s divination is my amulet, so I can’t say it yet, but to show my sincerity, I can tell you another news. “

The weird mist that had been lingering in his mind from just now suddenly became clear, and Jiang Xingzhi whispered: “Not good.” 

Fang Wuyang looked at him: “What?”

“He… knew you were here from the very beginning!”

“As expected of Jiang Changshi,” Fang Wuyang was about to ask again, but Qu Chenzhou laughed: “Then guess, how I knew it?”

Fang Wuyang immediately understood, if Qu Chenzhou knew about it, how could Liu Zhongming not know about it?

“Jiang Changshi was willing to give up the position of the Taishi Bureau. How about Young Warrior Fang? Shizi had already figured out Young Warrior Fang’s secret hall in the capital. Guess what the Shizi will do after he finds out that I am missing?” 

Fang Wuyang’s face turned pale, and he said nothing. He left quickly without saying a word, and the room suddenly became quiet again.

After a long time, Jiang Xingzhi slowly opened his mouth : “Are you really Qu Chenzhou?” 

“The authentic one,” Qu Chenzhou turned around and showed him his hands still tied together: “Since we want to cooperate, shouldn’t you also have some sincerity? I’m really hungry.”

Jiang Xingzhi hesitated for a moment, then stepped forward to untie the rope.

Qu Chenzhou turned over, sat up, opened his blindfold, looked at the sunlight outside and the open space outside the window, and understood the location.

With his cooperative attitude, Jiang Xingzhi didn’t need to torture him anymore, and soon he ordered simple dishes to be served. He watched him sit down at the table generously as if he was at home.

“Taught by Liu Zhongming?” Jiang Xingzhi sat opposite him and asked calmly.

The situation had come to this point, so one should deal with things as they come. He was already alone, as long as this person can be arranged by Jingchen’s side, everything else doesn’t matter.

Qu Chenzhou didn’t deny it: “What does Jiang Changshi want to say? Do you think I’m a white-eyed wolf who turned his head to bite the master?” 

“You have self-awareness,” Jiang Xingzhi saw that he held his chopsticks properly and ate in a civilized manner, and asked: “I’m just curious, how did Liu Zhongming teach you, why do you seem like a different person?”

“Want to know? Jiang Changshi can sell himself to work under Shizi, then you will know if you try it.”

Jiang Xingzhi didn’t believe it at this time. Even Liu Zhongming himself may not be so difficult. This person’s words were soft and oily, stubborn, but people had to follow along.

He didn’t speak, but Qu Chenzhou took the initiative to ask: “I’m curious, how did Jiang Changshi and His Highness meet back then? How did he dispel your desire to die?

That was his life’s one calamity, and he still remembered every bit of it. Perhaps it was seeing that despondent young man in the wind and snow, who was frightened like a lost dog, that he felt compassion for facing the same illness.

“Don’t meddle in others business!” 

Qu Chenzhou wisely stopped talking, the most important thing was to keep his head down and fill his stomach. After he was full of food and drink, he just walked around the room twice to digest the food when he heard the sound of footsteps coming outside the door.

“After dark, change to another place!”

Fang Wuyang’s complexion was ashened. Qu Chenzhou was staring at him fiercely, and he pursed his lips innocently: “I reminded you, the Shizi is not so easy to mess with.” 

It seems that Liu Zhongming’s speed of action was still vigorous and decisive, and the most important thing was that Zhongming found the clues he left in the first place.

Their cooperation…was still as tacit as before.

“I’m asking you!” Fang Wuyang ignored the gloating in his words, stepped forward a few steps, and grabbed his front collar: “Is Liu Zhongming really going to attack Jingchen? Is it true!” 

Qu Chenzhou’s eyes sparkled, suddenly clicking his tongue: “Aiyaya…”

Fang Wuyang felt that those glazed eyes seemed to be mocking his impatience, and couldn’t help being furious, and slapped him.

Qu Chenzhou turned his face and licked the corner of his mouth.

It was the first time seeing Fang Wuyang these days, and it was such a surprise.

He moved his lips and said silently: “Bing Dilian…”
