Murong Yunshu thought that Chu Changge would ask her why, but he didn't ask her anything at all, which made her feel relieved and somewhat lost . She was relieved because she didn't know how to explain all the reasons to him . As for her feeling of lost was because he actually had no reaction at all, as if, regardless whether she answered his question or not, it made no difference to him…
Murong Yunshu lowered her eyes . She was unable to say how depressed her heart felt .
"What kind of conditions given by King Liang Jr . did you agree to?" Chu Changge suddenly asked .
Murong Yun was taken aback as she raised her eyes and asked, "How did you know?"
"It's not like I don't know your character . When you encounter something like this, you will definitely choose the most direct way . " Chu Changge said with a smile . The corners of his mouth lifted up in a bitter arc .
Murong Yunshu stared at him deeply for a long while, before she gave her answer, "I've agreed to marry him . "
In an instant, Chu Changge only felt a sudden clap of thunder in his head and it shattered what was left of his sanity . "You're going to marry Hua Yeli?!” He growled and his face was livid .
This was the first time Murong Yunshu had ever seen Chu Changge being angry at her . He was truly angry, while her heart was feeling both weak and timid . She actually didn't really need to tell him, because she had no intention of marrying Hua Yeli at all . The reason she agreed to Hua Yeli's terms was merely a stopgap measure . But she told Chu Changge anyway, because she wanted to see if by learning that she would be marrying someone else, would Chu Changge still be as . . . indifferent as he had been when she had refused his marriage proposal .
Fortunately, he was furious, full of anger . As soon as her eyes touched Chu Changge's expression of wishing to break the chains and strangle her, Murong Yunshu was feeling incredibly happy . Her face couldn't help but show a smile, a very smug smile .
"You . . . " When Chu Changge saw the growing smile on her face, he suddenly calmed down and asked, "Did you just lie to me?"
"No . " Murong Yunshu smiled and shook her head, as she said, "He gave me the condition of me marrying him, and I agreed . "
Chu Changge's face darkened again as he scoffed, "The descendants of the Murong Mansion will never break their promise . " Since she had promised, she would not go back on her words . . . damn it! She actually turned him down and agreed to Hua Yeli . . . suddenly, Chu Changge's mind stirred up again and he suddenly realised, "You just refused me because you have promised to marry Hua Yeli?" When he thought that her refusal had its own reason, the small fire in his heart was rekindled .
After she heard his question, Murong Yunshu looked down slightly, and a little bit of sorrow climbed up to the tip of her curved brows . She replied, "No . " Hua Yeli was not qualified to be an obstacle between them .
What a big pot of cold water and Chu Changge felt cold all over .
Murong Yunshu glanced at him from the corner of her eyes, and then asked, "Don't you want to know why?"
Chu Changge smiled bitterly, "What other reason could a woman have for rejecting a man's proposal of marriage, other than she does not love him?"
Murong Yunshu's heart trembled at what he said, "You . . . is that what you think so?"
"Am I wrong?" Chu Changge still smiled bitterly, but his eyes flashed with the color of expectation, expecting her to deny this speculation of his .
Murong Yunshu looked at him and stared deeply at the black eyes that had fascinated her . After a long while, she lowered her head and answered, "You're right, I don't love you . " I don't love you deep enough, so I can't wrong you .
Surely . . . one should not have hope in one's heart . Chu Changge only felt sour and bitter in his heart, and his body also seemed to have had its strength instantly taken away, as he started to become somewhat unsteady on his feet .

After staring at the ground in silence for a long time, Chu Changge finally spoke, "You can leave now . " At this moment, he was still staring at the ground, for he was afraid that if he looked up and saw her in front of him, he would not have the determination to say these words .
Looking at a disheveled Chu Changge, Murong Yunshu's heart seized up . He was such a proud man . For him to even lower his head . . .
"You . . . take good care of yourself," said Murong Yunshu .
Chu Changge said nothing, for he was no longer in the mood to speak . He only hoped that she would leave sooner .
"You . . . " Murong Yunshu hesitated to speak . Eventually, she bit her lip before she turned away to leave . Before leaving the cave, she couldn't hold back the words that hung on her lips, "There are not many things that can satisfy both sides in this world . "
Before Chu Changge could understand the meaning of these words, Murong Yunshu had already been blindfolded and taken away by Hua Yeli's men .
There were not many things that could satisfy both sides in this world . . . what could satisfy both sides?
Chu Changge was completely bewildered by these senseless remarks .
At the same time, inside the Liang Wang[+]King Residence, Xu Hu had an expression of hating iron for not becoming steel[+]Chinese idiom : feel resentful towards sb for failing to meet expectations and impatient to see improvements, "Your Majesty, you have been so confused! That Murong Yunshu is such a smart person and yet, you even let her go see Chu Changge . Isn't that the same as opening the door for her to rescue him? If it was any other woman, blindfolding her would be foolproof, but she . . . she is Murong Yunshu, the young lady of the Murong Mansion, the woman in charge of the world's wealth . Even if she is blindfolded with her hands and feet are tied, she still has a thousand ways to remember the way!"
Hua Yeli said, "Even if she hasn't remembered the way, I will let Chu Changge go . "
"Your Majesty, you . . . you . . . " Xu Hu was anxious and angry . But in the end, he let out a long sigh and pointed out, "That Chu Changge is the master of the Mojiao Sect . It's already lucky for us to catch him this once! Once we let him go, it would be like letting the tiger go back to the mountain[+]Chinese idiom : set the stage for calamity in the future, and there will be no way for us to live by then!"
At those words, Hua Yeli's heart wavered for a moment, but once he thought of Murong Yunshu's promise, he was reassured again . "She has agreed to marry me . "
"Your Highness!" Xu Hui was so anxious that his lips trembled . Only after a long time did he let out a deep sigh and said in an earnest tone, "Hearts are not objects . They cannot be exchanged . If you really like Murong Yunshu, you should try your best to move her heart . "
How could Hua Yeli himself not know about this principle? However, it was already made clear to him that currently there was no room for anyone else in Murong Yunshu's heart . As long as Chu Changge existed in this world, there would be no one else in her eyes .
Since he couldn't get her heart, he should get the real person first . One day, he would let her know that Chu Changge was not the only man in this world .
Apart from sighing, Xu Hu really didn't know what else to say . This one word, 'love', really did people great harm!
At this time, a guard came in to report, "Your Highness, Miss Murong has returned to the residence . "
In an instant, Hua Yeli's eyes lit up and his cold, hard face softened a lot . "Understood . Withdraw . " As soon as the guard left, Hua Yeli told Xu Hu, "You don't need to worry . I have my own way of handling this matter . " Once he had done saying that, he lifted his legs and walked away .
Xu Hu looked at the obvious impatient in Hua Yeli's steps, and sighed once more . It was true that Murong Yunshu was a remarkable woman that was rarely seen in a century . With her help, there was no need for them to worry about not achieving great things! However, if she really didn’t have any feelings towards His Highness, he was afraid that . . . perhaps…
Xu Hu really did not dare to imagine the consequences as he helplessly shook his head and sighed, "Since ancient times, a beauty had been the source of troubles!"
"Which girl has offended Military Advisor Xu this time around?"
When Xu Hu looked up, he saw that it was Chi You, one of the advisors under King Liang Jr . He immediately put on a serious expression and left with a flick of his sleeve[+]Chinese idiom : go off in a huff . This man, Chi You, was harbouring evil intentions and he was most reluctant to deal with him![+]This noob translation was translated by a noob translator, きつね . Please read this chapter at xin-shou . blogspot . com .
For receiving such unwelcomeness, Chi You's face also turned gloomy . A trace of ruthlessness appeared in his eyes . He said, "You're only a dog person who only knows how to fight a war on paper[+]Chinese idiom : all talk and no action . Let's see if you dare to take me out of King Liang's residence!"
While, Xu Hu's mind was thinking of something else——Murong Yunshu and Chu Changge, one was the richest person among the people and the other was the overlord of 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 . It was not wise to make an enemy with either of them . His Highness had easily been swayed by his emotions[+]Chinese idiom : act impetuously . This was indeed . . . not the work of a wise master!T/NLol, he just zone out Chi You .
Xu Hu shook his head as he walked, while feeling endlessly distressed . The current Emperor was weak and incompetent . The Empress Dowager's relatives were dictatorial . The Crown Prince was narrow-minded, and King Liang Jr . was indecisive . . . as he looked at this situation, which one could be said as the wise ruler?
The people will suffer if the country did not have one!
Murong Yunshu had been distracted ever since she returned to the Liang Wang[+]King Residence . It was only when Hua Yeli walked up to her that she snapped back to her senses and was startled . "Why are you here?" She asked bluntly .
"I come to see you . " Hua Yeli sat down on her left and asked, "Have you seen him?"
Murong Yunshu nodded gently, "Mm . "
Then, both of them were silent .
After a long time, Hua Yeli popped the question, "Has he agreed to withdraw from the marriage?" He didn't want to mention this matter in a hurry, but he couldn't find anything else to say to break the awkwardness apart from this matter . The closer he got to her, the more he realised that there was very little common language between them . The only topics of their conversation were those that were unpleasant to her . Hua Yeli laughed bitterly in his heart as he wondered how he had put himself in such a sad situation .
Murong Yunshu did not directly answer Hua Yeli's question, but instead requested, "You let him go . I will stay and help you take over the country . "
Hua Yili was stunned, "You want to back out of your promise?"
Instead of answering, Murong Yunshu asked him back, "Do you think the Emperor, the Crown Prince and the various vassal kings who are glaring at the throne like a tiger eyeing its prey[+]Chinese idiom : eye covetously or menacingly will let me marry you?"
"This Wang[+]King's marriage is not something for them to point out!" Hua Yeli stated in a stern voice .
The corners of Murong Yunshu's mouth were slightly bent . "What about King Liang Sr . ?"
"How did you know . . . " Halfway through the sentence, Hua Yeli did not ask any further, because he had already guessed . The matter regarding his father not supporting his rebellion must have been revealed by Wang Chao and Zhang Yu .
"Yes, my father doesn't support me in marrying you . But as long as Mu Fei[+]mu=mother, fei=consort supports it, Fu Wang[+]fu=father, wang=king will no longer oppose it . "
"It seems that King Liang Sr . is very affectionate towards Wang Fei[+]wang=king, fei=consort . " Murong Yunshu said meaningfully .
Hua Yeli suddenly had an illusion just by listening to her tone, as if she knew about everything . . . this was impossible . Many things were unknown even to Wang Chao and Zhang Yu . . she could not have known .
"You marry me, and I will let Chu Changge go . This was the agreement between us . " Hua Yeli suddenly felt very uneasy . He faintly felt that something was wrong, but he could not tell what was wrong .
Murong Yunshu smiled faintly, "Since you insist on making enemies for yourself, I don't need to say any more . As long as Chu Changge regains his freedom, I will put on my wedding clothes . " But not for you . She added this in her heart .
Hua Yeli bargained, "Marry me first, and then I will let him go . "
"I thought we had reached an agreement . "
"We did reach an agreement . But we must get married first . " Xu Hu's words had its merit . Chu Changge was a dangerous person, and they must get married before letting him go, lest things would change .
Murong Yunshu frowned and thought about it, before saying, "Okay, I think you are also worried about having a long night that is fraught with dreams[+]Chinese idiom : A long delay means trouble, so we will get married in three days . After our marriage, you will let him go immediately . "
"Okay . " At this time, Hua Yeli finally let go of his hanging heart .
Murong Yunshu, on the other hand, lowered her eyes and smiled faintly . She was looking forward to their upcoming wedding with great anticipation .
