Thousand Miles of Heaven Chapter 42

Ch 42 He will not let Xie Chaoling do what others want

<Previous Chapter<Table of Contents>Next Chapter>

King Xie’s residence.

After the person who reported the matter retreated, Xie Chaohui frowned, and lowered his eyes deep in thought.

The guard Bamu asked in a low voice: “Your Highness, do you think what he said just now was true? Is His Royal Highness the crown Prince really at King Ke’s place?”

“It’s true.” Xie Chaohui whispered these words.

“His Royal Highness King Xun specially passed this news to you, presumably he wants to use your hands to deal with His Royal Highness the Crown Prince.”

The servant of the mansion who came to report the news just now claimed that he accidentally saw the Crown Prince next to King Ke when he was out shopping. This was half-truth and half-false. That person was a spy Xie Chaorong put into King Xing’s mansion, Xie Chaohui knew it a long time ago but never moved him, sometimes he would use his mouth to send some false news to Xie Chaorong’s end. Today that guy suddenly spoke of the whereabouts of the Crown Prince, it must be that Xie Chaorong deliberately disclosed this matter to him.

The reason was also easy to guess, as Ba Mu said, Xie Chaorong wanted to use his hands to deal with the crown prince.

Xie Chaohui didn’t answer, no emotion could be seen in his cold face. Bamu was worried, and he wanted to say something more when Xie Chaohui suddenly turned his eyes to him: “Bamu, you are from Bailing Country.”

Xie Chaohui’s tone was so calm that there were almost no ups and downs, Bamu’s heart skipped a beat, and he lowered his head: “Yes.”

“When this king picked you up on the northwest border, you said you were an orphan, and this king saved you and you will only follow this king from then on.”


“During this period of time, this king has been thinking about why the crown prince’s horse suddenly went crazy and rushed off the cliff in Dong Shan Ying. Was it a coincidence or did someone know what the king was going to do, so they followed the crown prince’s horse to make a move. It was not until today, that this king discovered that the crown prince was at King Ke’s place.”

Cold sweat was already dripping from Bamu’s forehead. Xie Chaohui’s expression turned cold: “The matter of Dong Shan Ying was your idea for this king. This king was targeting King Huai and King Xun, but someone else was targeting the crown prince. This person is King Ke.”

“You are actually King Ke’s man.”

Bamu knelt heavily on his knees, Xie Chaohui didn’t look at him again, and soon someone came to drag him away.

The servant behind him stepped forward and asked Xie Chaohui softly: “Your Highness, what should I do with him?”

“Kill him, and send the same message back to King Ke.”

Xie Chaohui finished his sentence and ordered, “Go and invite Princess Leping to come.”

Xie Huizhen was stopped by a group of people while playing in the street, and forcibly “invited” to King Xing’s Mansion without changing his men’s clothes.

“There’s no need to hide, I know you are not a daughter.” Xie Chaohui said calmly.

Xie Huizhen almost choked on his own saliva: “Third Uncle,… how did you find out?”

“My brother told me about it when he was alive.”

Xie Huizhen shut up.

“I know you are very close to King Ke. You were in Prince Ke’s mansion, so have you seen the crown prince?”

Xie Huizhen was surprised for a moment, and his eyes quickly rolled around: “Why is crown prince fifth uncle in King Ke’s mansion?”

“Have you seen him?” 

Naturally it was a haven’t seen, but Xie Huizhen was clever. Xie Chaohui said this and he almost immediately thought of who the possible person was. Xie Chaohui saw the clue from his expression: “You have seen him.”

“I didn’t know he was crown prince fifth uncle before, so I’m not sure if it’s him.” Xie Huizhen said.

“It’s fine if you have seen him,” Xie Chaohui nodded lightly, “I need you to go to King Ke’s place again and pass a message to the crown prince for me.”

In King Huai’s mansion, Xie Chaoqi’s face was was as heavy as water, reading the anonymous letter that the concierge picked up at the entrance of the Mansion early in the morning.

He didn’t know who wrote this letter, but it talked about old things related to the accounts of the Ministry of Revenue, a big enough matter that can disturb the court situation again.

Ten years ago, in the tragic battle between the Northwest Army and the Xirong people, Daliang lost 100,000 soldiers. The reason for the subsequent accountability was due to the shortage of food and military supplies causing the Ministry of War to be jerked around from top to bottom, countless of times. However, today’s letter said that what happened back then was not because of the officials of the Ministry of War being greedy for military expenses. From the beginning to the end, the Ministry of War was allocated less than 30%. The Ministry of War actually suffered on behalf of the Ministry of Finance. At that time, Shen Zhongdao was the Minister of Revenue and later became the chief minister seat. Ten years ago was the time of power for Shen and in order to protect themselves, he redid the accounts and, using some means, forced the Ministry of War to cover the big crime.

That incident had a far-reaching impact in the future. Even though he became the chief minister after, the Shen’s had been losing since then and gradually declined, and the Zhao seized the opportunity at that time, arbitrarily putting people into the military department, and completely controlling the military department. The momentum gradually surpassed the Shen family, until he became the head of the family.

After reading it, Xie Chaoqi pressed the letter paper aside, closed his eyes and meditated. Song Shi glanced at him, picked up the letter paper, read it quickly, and asked in a low voice, “Your Highness, what do you plan to do with this matter?”

Xie Chaoqi said, “I don’t know who sent this letter, and they want to use this king as a spearman. “

…There are some evidences that Shen Zhongdao didn’t completely destroy in the past. It seems that this is true. In fact, His Highness does not necessarily have to report on them since they have the Shen’s weakness. Maybe you can go to sniff out the rumors, then use it for your own use?”

“No need,” Xie Chaoqi said coldly, “Shen Zhongdao is dead, and the Shen family doesn’t have any usable descendants now, sooner or later they will completely decline, this king doesn’t need them.”

He was disgusted with these families, the former crown prince and Empress Yuan were forced to death by these aristocratic families, who can say that the Shen family wasn’t involved? After all, the one who became the crown prince in the end was Xie Chaoling, and Xie Chaoling’s sister married the Shen family.

“This king will just create this weakness.” Xie Chaoqi opened his eyes, and a sneer slipped through his thick black eyes.

The Ministry of Revenue affairs was not over and Emperor Qianming was in need of a scapegoat. For this old man to barely maintain the face he had almost lost have the Shen family be the scapegoat. In this way, his father might be grateful to him .

“If the Shen family falls, I’m afraid the Zhao family will become even more rampant.” Song Shi reminded him.

Xie Chaoqi didn’t care at all: “No matter how rampant they are, they can’t change the dynasty. That idiot Xie Chaorong is an idiot who can’t bear it, don’t worry about it.” 

On the other hand, at Xie Chaohui’s, Shen and Yang’s two families were sent over to help him by Qianming Emperor after the crown prince’s accident. Xie Chaohui’s life had already been made difficult by the Ministry of Revenue, now these bad things will only make life more difficult in the future.

A few days later, Xie Chaoyuan went to court again, and on the return journey, he was stopped by Xie Huizhen who suddenly appeared on the street in the capital again.

Xie Huizhen climbed into the carriage, and asked him with a smile: “Where is Sixth Uncle enjoying himself these days? I went to your house several times and you were not there, so boring.”

Xie Chaoyuan motioned for the people to continue driving: “Do you have something to do with this king? “

“It’s nothing, but I’m so bored, Uncle Six take me to play together.” 

The carriage left the city, and it took more than an hour to arrive at the place. Only then did Xie Huizhen discover that Xie Chaoyuan was in the southern suburbs of the capital, desolate and uninhabited, a villa set up in the place.

After getting out of the carriage, he looked around without a trace, thinking it was no wonder Xie Chaoyuan dared to hide the person here, this place was almost out of the capital. His sixth uncle was really courageous.

“When did Sixth Uncle get this villa?” Xie Huizhen followed along Xie Chaoyuan who stepped into the door, and asked him.

“I bought it some time ago.” Xie Chaoyuan said casually.

“Is Sixth Aunt here too?”


Xie Chaoling just got up, and he was very lazy during this period of time, sometimes he didn’t get up until Chen Shi, which was the case today when Xie Chaoyuan brought Xie Huizhen over; he just had breakfast.

Seeing Xie Huizhen, Xie Chaoling was a little surprised. He thought that Xie Chaoyuan really didn’t intend to let him see any outsiders.

Xie Chaoyuan pointed at Xie Huizhen, and said to him: “I met this kid on the way back, I brought him here to relieve your boredom.”

Xie Huizhen was quite speechless, and sat down at the table, he happened to be hungry too.

Two sets of bowls and chopsticks were added to the table. Xie Chaoyuan sat beside Xie Chaoling, and helped him pull back his untied long hair behind his ears. Xie Chaoling raised his eyes, smiled at him, and handed him a bowl of hot porridge.

Xie Huizhen lowered his eyes silently. He was only three years old when he left the East Palace. Fifth uncle, the crown prince, he had met him a few times when he was a child, but he had no memory of it. Now that he heard that the person was here, it must be the one in front of him.

Regarding the strange relationship between Xie Chaoyuan and Xie Chaoling, Xie Huizhen didn’t think much about it. The royal family had many hidden secrets, but Xie Chaoyuan’s daringness surprised him even more.

When breakfast was over, Wang Rang came over and whispered in Xie Chaoyuan’s ear, “Your Highness, I have something to report to you.”

Xie Chaoling was making tea for Xie Huizhen when he heard this. He glanced at him and said with a smile: “Your Highness is indeed very busy.”

Xie Chaoyuan stood up: “I’ll be back soon”, and went to the front study.

There was no one else in the room, so Xie Chaoling poured the brewed scented tea into the cup in front of Xie Huizhen: “Taste it.”

Xie Huizhen took a sip and almost got his tongue burned, so he put it down quickly, he was not used to doing this elegant thing: “Sixth Aunt doesn’t need people to wait on him in this house?”

Xie Chaoling pouted towards the door: “There are people outside.”

Now wherever he goes, there were a bunch of people around him, he can’t even leave the villa gate.

“Then you are under house arrest by Sixth Uncle?”

Xie Chaoling paused while pouring tea, raised his eyes to look at Xie Huizhen who was smiling, looked at him silently for a moment, then said, “Speak up if you have something to say.”

“Fifth Crown Prince Uncle, is that you?”


Xie Huizhen gasped, “It’s true.”

“How did you know?” Xie Chaoling asked.

Xie Huizhen glanced outside and lowered his voice: “Third Uncle, I’m here to speak to Fifth Uncle on behalf of Third Uncle.”

“Third Uncle said that he didn’t touch your horse in the Dongshan hunting grounds that day, but the incident happened because of him. From now on, if His Highness the Crown Prince wants to settle accounts in the future, he can kill and cut him at will, but if His Highness the Crown Prince needs help now, he is willing to be a pawn for you.”

Xie Chaoling looked at him calmly: “What are the conditions?”

Xie Huizhen squeezed his hands hard on the teacup: “As long as you can reverse the case for the former crown prince.”

Xie Chaoling understood instantly, this is why the kid in front of him was willing to pass the words on Xie Chaohui’s behalf.

Xie Chaohui’s thoughts did not surprise him. That day in the Dongshan hunting grounds, the arrow did not hit his vital spots. From the very beginning, Xie Chaohui’s goal was not him. Later, he fell off the cliff. Since Xie Chaohui said that he didn’t do it, it was only possible that it was Xie Chaoyuan.

Xie Chaoling closed his eyes. The moment the crazy horse lost control and rushed off the cliff, he really thought he was going to die. He could still recall the fear of falling rapidly, then he was caught by a big net later, maybe more than one, he seemed to be caught by something several times during the fall, until he was completely caught at last, and then lost consciousness.

Xie Chaoyuan was a complete lunatic, just for this incident, he should cut that person into thousands of pieces.

Xie Huizhen looked at him and asked, “Fifth Uncle, is it okay?”

“How does King Xing know that I’m alone here?” Xie Chaoling changed his call of his name.

“It was King Xun who passed the news to him.”

Xie Chaorong also knows? Xie Chaoling couldn’t help frowning.

“Can you?” Xie Huizhen asked again.

Xie Chaoling lowered his voice: “King Xun revealed the news my presence to King Xing because he just wants to use King Xing’s hand to get rid of me. Since that’s the case, let’s just do it.”

He really needed a helper, and it must be someone Xie Chaoyuan wouldn’t expected. Xie Chaoyuan locked him here, and now even Wang Jin has been expelled. He no longer had anyone available in this villa. The river behind this village was connected to the canal. If there was any disturbance, Xie Chaoyuan could send him away immediately, even sending him to Bailing to Xirong, thus, this man was confident that he can keep him.

If Xie Huizhen hadn’t been a child, Xie Chaoyuan wouldn’t have been too confident, not taking him seriously, bringing him along and giving him a chance.

Xie Huizhen was stunned: “Fifth Uncle, do you want to go back? When?”

Xie Chaoling picked up the teacup, his brows blurred in the curling mist: “Wait a little longer.” 

In the study, Wang Rang reported the news back to Xie Chaoyuan about King Huai.

Xie Chaoyuan was silent for a long time, then only said: “Don’t let him know.”

Once something happened to the Shen family, Princess Shurou would also be implicated, and Xie Chaoling would not just watch such a thing happen.

At this time, those who aimed their guns at the Shen’s would not be those who already knew that Xie Chaoling was still alive and did not want him to go back, but someone who wanted to force him to go back.

He will not let Xie Chaoling do what others want.

The author has something to say:
