As soon as Murong Yunshu settled in Liang Wang[+]King/Prince Residence, Hua Yeli came meet her alone, as she expected.
Facing Hua Yeli, Murong Yunshu didn't have to deal with him courteously but without sincerity[+]Chinese idiom : pretend politeness and compliance. Thus she went straight to the point, "Does His Highness know why I'm here?
Hua Yeli replied, "I know."
Murong Yunshu added, "If I can't find him, I won't leave. Does His Highness know this?"
"I know." This was exactly the result he wanted.
"Since His Highness knows about it, then we don't need to waste each other's time anymore. Let's set the conditions." When Murong Yunshu said this, she didn't look straight at Hua Yeli's face, but tilted her head to the side instead. It was because she really didn't want her eyes to meet the eyes of such a despicable person.[+]This noob translation was translated by a noob translator, きつね.

Hua Yeli thought the reason for Murong Yunshu turning her head excessively was because she was scared of the scars on his face. His face immediately became much darker, as he coldly questioned, "Do you think I led you here to negotiate with you?" His tone was a bit exasperated.
Murong Yunshu frowned and asked, "How old is Your Highness this year?"
Hua Yeli didn't understand why she asked this question abruptly. He was flabbergasted but he still replied, "Twenty-five."
Murong Yunshu commented, "It must have not been easy for a person with such a big temper to live up to twenty-five."
The colour on Hua Yeli's face changed a bit, and he actually left her without saying a word.
Murong Yunshu didn't expect King Liang Jr would be pissed off because of her words. She was really surprised. A person who wanted to be an Emperor should be shrewd and not exhibit his feelings in his speech[+]Chinese idiom : [of feelings] show clearly in one's words and manner. How could he be so uncomfortable?
Murong Yunshu was puzzled. She eventually unfolded her brows, lifted the teapot and poured herself some tea while asking, "Did you four find anything?"
Lu-er felt strange. There was no one around except for them both. So with whom Miss was talking to?
Just as Lu-er was wondering, she heard a swish of wind in her ears, as four black shadows appeared out of nowhere, and lined up straight in front of her.
Lu-er rubbed her eyes, then rubbed her eyes again, when she finally said, "With your skills, you can definitely earn a fortune if you guys make a living as performers in the jianghu[+]lit. rivers and lakes—people wandering from place to place and living by their wits, e.g. fortune-tellers, quack doctors, itinerant entertainers, etc. , considered as a social group!"[T/N]Lu-er, they are ALREADY jianghu people. Except for them not being performers.
The corners of the four people's mouths trembled very unanimously. Making a living as performers in the jianghu[+]lit. rivers and lakes—people wandering from place to place and living by their wits, e.g. fortune-tellers, quack doctors, itinerant entertainers, etc. , considered as a social group...was this a compliment?
The corner of Murong Yunshu's hooked up. She turned the quilt leisurely, and asked, "Have you guys found anything unusual?"
"In a manner of speaking, yes and no." East Guardian replied.
"What do you mean by that?"
East Guardian explained, "No, for the reason that apart from being more luxurious, the Liang Wang[+]King/Prince Residence is no different from ordinary houses."
Murong Yunshu nodded gently and listened quietly as East Guardian continued to speak.
"It's also because, the servants in the residence have never heard of the arrest of the Leader, or even know that Leader has been into the residence."
Murong Yunshu frowned, "For such a big thing, even if one hasn't seen it with one's own eyes, one must have heard of it.
"Yes. That's why I feel weird." East Guardian added, "No matter how we threaten and lure, we only got one answer——I don't know."
Lu-er put forth her opinion, "Could it be that King Liang Jr. had forbade them from revealing about it?"
"No." Murong Yunshu slowly shook her head as she pointed out, "If King Liang Jr. wanted to conceal this matter, it wouldn't have spread in the jianghu[+]lit. rivers and lakes—people wandering from place to place and living by their wits, e.g. fortune-tellers, quack doctors, itinerant entertainers, etc. , considered as a social group."[+]This noob translation was translated by a noob translator, きつね.

"But won't he be afraid that Mojiao will seek revenge on him?" Lu-er was puzzled.
"How can the Mojiao dare to act recklessly when their Master is in someone else's hands?" As Murong Yunshu said these words, she turned to look at East Guardian.
East Guardian nodded gravely, "Madam is right. Since Leader is still in the hands of King Liang Jr., we don't dare to touch him. That's why we gathered in the Gossip House, waiting for Madam's order."
Murong Yunshu laughed bitterly, "None of you dare to act rashly, let alone me."
East Guardian hung his head in silence. How could it slipped from his mind that Madam cared more about the Leader's well-being than they did...
South Guardian was the one who inquired next, "Since Madam is also not sure, then why did Madam live in the Wang[+]King/Prince Residence so openly?"
Murong Yunshu sighed, "I originally thought that King Liang Jr. would negotiate terms with me." She was also ready to agree to whatever conditions that he would lay out, but she never expected that the King Liang Jr. would not use the capturing of Chu Changge to force her to comply.
The four of them also sighed. The Leader was known to possess unusual powers, so how could he easily be captured by King Liang Jr.? This matter was really fishy.
While Chu Changge, who was imprisoned inside a cave, had never see anyone else other than a mute servant who would bring his food on time every day.
Although a life without being able to see the light of the day was depressing, Chu Changge had recovered his common sense from his initial anger. He had finally calmed himself down, and currently was in a good mood. This was because, he knew that to a certain person, although that person could see the light of the day, that person was living a life that was far worse than being dead. As Chu Changge thought of his own masterpiece, a smirk appeared on his lips.
Just by knowing that Hua Yeli was suffering more than he was, he would not suffer by himself so much.
On that day, Chu Changge had come to the Liang Wang[+]King/Prince Residence, originally wanting to deal with King Liang Jr., Hua Yeli, to his heart contents. However, Hua Yeli, unexpectedly, was in the study, drinking by himself. When Hua Yeli saw him appear, a trace of despair appeared on his face, as he let out, "I knew you would come.
"Why didn't you run away when you already knew that I'm coming to kill you?" Chu Changge stood outside the door and quietly asked. He was here to kill, and didn't need to talk nonsense with Hua Yeli. But, he liked to talk with smart people. As long as they had a smart head, he would let them live a few seconds longer even if they were the ones whom he wanted to kill personally.
Hua Yeli tilted his head and drank a glass of wine, then he countered coldly, "If you want to kill me, where else can I escape to?"
"Since you know that you can't escape, it means you are not stupid. Since you are not stupid, you shouldn't have any ideas on Murong Yunshu in the first place."
Hua Yeli responded, "A woman like her, once you've met her, she will make others have some ideas on wanting to mark her."
When Chu Changge heard what he said, his expression changed. He then spoke, "I saw that you are a wise man. I originally wanted you to die more easily, but I didn't expect you still won't repent and mend your ways."
Hua Yeli asked nonchalantly, "Do you know what kind of wine that I had drunk?"
Chu Changge was about to say 'I don't know' when Hua Yeli suddenly continued, "The wine I drank was poisonous. If a Prince like me dies in the hands of a devil like you, I won't be able to face my ancestors in the underworld. Rather than be humiliated, I'd rather take my own life."
Although Chu Changge was the head of Mojiao Sect and had a notorious reputation, he never killed people rashly. It was because not many people in this world were qualified to die in his hands. However, this Hua Yeli said like it was a shameless thing for him to die in his hands, so how could he not be angry?
Chu Changge had a murderous look in his eyes as he said, "Since you think it's a shame to die in my hands, then, I'll make the shame taste even worse."
When he had to hardly finished speaking, the cup in Hua Yeli's hand shattered with a 'ding' sound. Chu Changge had already entered the room and he was standing in front of Hua Yeli at some point.
"Good qinggong[+]"the art of lightness". The body is trained to be "light as feather", so that a person can run at great speed, leap high and drop down softly on the tip of the toe." Hua Yeli praised.
Chu Changge smiled coldly and said, "What will make you beg for your life is not this qinggong[+]"the art of lightness". The body is trained to be "light as feather", so that a person can run at great speed, leap high and drop down softly on the tip of the toe." As he spoke, his right hand quickly pat a few places on Hua Yeli's body. They were very normal pats, which was no different from an ordinary pats, except for their incredible speed.
But in a moment, Hua Yeli felt his shin bones twist, seemingly like they had stretched and shrunken, while his heart was tingling as if he was going to die.
"Split, split tendons and dislocate bones hand movement." Hua Yeli's face was so painfully distorted that the scar on his face looked terrifying.
Chu Changge smiled. His smile outshone all others and handsomely refined, which gave other people a kindly and pleasant appearance. These other people did not include Hua Yeli though. "It's not easy for anyone to recognise the split tendon and dislocate bone hand movement, especially a straw bag[+]good-for-nothing like Your Highness." After a pause, he added, "Seeing that His Highness still has some insight, I'll let you live for a few more years."
Before Hua Yeli had time to understand the meaning of Chu Changge's words, several acupuncture points in his body began to feel stabbing pains one after another. The pain only lasted less than half a minute, and then the pain suddenly disappeared, as if the piercing pain was just an illusion.
"It doesn't hurt now, isn't it?" Chu Changge's voice was low, soft, and graceful, but with an evil air that could make one's whole body felt cold. He smiled in a good mood, "Don't worry, every other hour, the feeling you just get familiar with will appear once more. Although each time it will only last for one minute, I assure you that this minute will make you feel like it has been a lifetime. So don't worry. Enjoy it slowly.
While it was obvious that Chu Changge was saying horrifying things, his 'good flowers, good weather[+]leisure/relaxing,' tone made them sounded extraordinarily creepy.
Hua Yeli never expected Chu Changge's skill to be this fast. Chu Changge was so fast that Hua Yeli didn't even have a chance to press the mechanism button. The button was only two to three centimeters away from his finger, and he only needed to move his finger just a little to activate it. But Hua Yeli, who was suffering from painful tendon and bone dislocation, did not even have the strength to move his finger. He was already desperate, but surprisingly, Chu Changge relieved him of his pain. Although a few moments of comfort were traded for endless torture, it was really worth it.
A smirk raised at the corner of Hua Yeli's mouth as he slapped the mechanism button on the table next to his left hand. Suddenly, a 'shua' sound could be heard, followed by a 'pop', the sound of metal hitting the ground. All doors and windows had been cut off by iron walls, as the study immediately turned into a copper wall, with an iron bastion[+]Chinese idiom : impenetrable defense, not just in name, but also in reality.
Chu Changge, not expecting such a change, was busy pushing his palms at one of the iron walls. His action caused the table shaken to the ground, the teapots shattered, and the paintings on the wall also crashed down. However, the iron wall on the door side was still unable to be moved.
"Don't waste your energy. These walls are made of thousand-year-old black steel, and you can't break it." Hua Yeli coolly said.
"So you deliberately provoked me just now to bring me through the door." Chu Changge was so preoccupied with thinking of ways to torment Hua Yeli that he forgot to take some precautions.
"Not bad. To deal with martial arts master like you, naturally I have to use some means." Hua Yeli understood arrogant people too well, for the reason that he himself was such a person. However, what an arrogant person couldn't stand the most was provocative methods. In the wake of his increase in experience, he had gradually learned how to restrain, conceal, and refrain himself. On the other hand, Chu Changge was an upright young man, who thought highly of himself[+]Chinese idiom : arrogant and self-important, hot-blooded, and naturally, he was easily stimulated.
Chu Changge originally wanted to say, 'But you're also trapped yourself inside.' But on a second thought, since this iron room was prepared especially for him, Hua Yeli must have a way out...all of a sudden, Hua Yeli's seat flew up, as a large skylight suddenly opened up on the roof to let him out, and instantly closed up again.
What the Translator imagined after translating above chapter.
Chu Changge was really annoyed when he started to hear a sudden 'chi chi' sound, and a stream of smoke suddenly appeared from the wall. Although he was confident that he was invulnerable to all kinds of poison, he did not dare to be careless after a series of incidents. He urgently closed his breath. Unfortunately, it was too late. The poisonous smoke had already penetrated his skin, and afterwards, he fell unconscious.
When he woke up again, he was already trapped in this strange cave.
Chu Changge was puzzled. How could Hua Yueli know that although he was invulnerable to all poisons, he had no resistance to Xueyu Mixiang[+]xue=snow, yu=region, mi=confused, xiang=fragrant? Moreover, Xueyu Mixiang[+]xue=snow, yu=region, mi=confused, xiang=fragrant was produced in Xueyu, and there were only a few of them in the Central Plain...
