Notice to Pay Respect
“Piao Miao Manor?!” Pei Che was quietly thinking for a moment, but he did not have any clue, this Piao Miao Manor came about very strangely. It seemed that this place started to have its reputation everywhere within these past 2-3 years, but no one could say what this place was clearly. Plus he did not seem to belong to or was controlled by the geographical location from any one’s country and action, and it also increased a mysterious feeling about him. Pei Che wanted to listen why Lei Yi brought up a discussion about this person here?! “General Lei, please continue in details.”
At this time, Lei Yi did not hesitate anymore, he advanced one step, and said with a clear voice: “Yes, Piao Miao Manor is exchanging some commodities for its businesses, actually for the past many years, no matter whether the two countries were fighting or not, the ordinary people from the two countries would always exchange some stuffs between them. But these were for some small benefits, and they were not some big transactions either, afterwards, Piao Miao Manor suddenly appeared out of nowhere. During that time, it would buy all of Cang Yue and Dong Yu’s commodities, and started to exchange things as its businesses, it became bigger and bigger afterwards. Nearly all of the big merchants from both countries have been dealing businesses with this Piao Miao Manor. The ordinary people from these two countries love and respect the Master of the Manor, because he is ___”
“General Lei, we ask you why that the Master of the Manor can break the battle arrays, what are you doing piling up with his praises and reputations!” Li Ming was somewhat impatient and interrupted his words, what was wrong with this Lei Yi. He normally spoke in clear and simple words, how could he talk unusually about this Piao Miao Manor today.
In regard to Li Ming’s rude retort, Lie Yi could only be silent for a moment, but when he raised his head again, he said with a magnanimous face: “The Master of the Manor is not only an exceptional merchant, he has been studying in regard to the strange method of the battle arrays. One can only hear the name of Piao Miao Manor in recent years, but not a lot of people can see its appearance, that is because the vicinity of the Manor is surrounded by the five elements of spell. Without a guide from someone from the Manor, the ordinary people will absolutely not able to go in. If we can get his help, we will be able to break the battle arrays and its method.” Once he was done speaking, he just retreated back with concentration to sit on his wooden seat.
Xuanyuan Yi looked one glance at Li Ming who still did not know what he did wrong, he was somewhat helpless and sighing in his heart. It seemed that he should properly teach this stubborn and foolish youngster. No longer paying attention to him, Xuanyuan Yi said to Lei Yi who kept his silent: “General Lei, this esteem Master of the Manor, are you personally knowledgeable about his ability?” Lei Yi had an honest temperament, and had been a general for a long time, he would not say anything without confirming it. Looking at his face when he was saying all of those words about that Master of the Manor, it could be determined that he had some relationships.
When the General asked him a question, Lei Yi had to answer, so he got up again, and answered: “This old General is fortunate, when I was injured two years ago, the Master of the Manor actually saved me. Afterwards, for the purpose of expressing my thanks, I had been to Piao Miao Manor once. Unfortunately, without someone to help me enter the door, I was trapped within the spell for a full two days, and could only come out once they helped me.”
“So, that Shang Jun was really somewhat capable, then, I will immediately ask him to come over to help now.” Listening to what he was saying, Li Ming also thought that there was a reason, he realized that he was somewhat rude and impetuous a moment ago. Lei Yi was an old General after all, so he should not interrupt his words like that. Li Ming immediately got up and wanted to rush out.
Pei Che said with an unhurried nor slow tone: “If it is easy like this, General Lei will not just tell us about this now.”
“What do you mean?” Li Ming did not understand it? He stopped his footsteps. He was looking blankly at Lei Yi.
Lei Yi’s expression was somewhat heavy, he nodded and said: “What the Military Counselor is saying, is exactly what this old General is saying, the Master of the Manor is very rarely meeting with outsiders. The legend says that even his business partner is rarely seen, so even though Piao Miao Manor is prestigious, but the people who have met with the Master of the Manor are very few. The place of the Manor is between Cang Yue and Dong Yu, he has always been dealing in businesses only, and has never been involved with the affairs of the politics from both countries. So it will be difficult if we want to meet with him, and it is even more difficult to ask him to break the battle arrays.”
This Piao Miao Manor was really arrogant, they finally found a way after discussing this for one day, so how could they abandon it easily like this. Li Ming’s stubbornness came out again, so he called out with his own exaggerated opinion: “This really will not do, we just have to strongly break through the Miao Piao Manor, I just can not believe that we can not meet that Shang Jun.”
Pei Che laughingly shook his head, and smilingly said: “If anyone can burst into the Manor casually, then, we do not need to take a lot of trouble to go and ask the Master of the Manor for help either!”
If every merchant in the country had some dealings with Piao Miao Manor, in that case, there should be one person who could see Shang Jun.
Pei Che lightly called out to Murong Shu Qing who was standing by the side of the door: “Shu Qing ~~”
Murong Shu Qing did not pay attention to him. Pei Che looked around, and could only see that Murong Shu Qing’s face was looking pensively at her own feet on the ground, as if she did not pay attention that someone was calling for her. Pei Che called her out again: “Shu Qing ~~”
Xuanyuan Yi felt that it was very strange also, it seemed that since Lei Yi started talking, she was somewhat absentminded, so Xuanyuan Yi was just about to ask the Military doctor to examine if her body was feeling well or not. But Murong Shu Qing seemed to finally recover, and raised her head to look at everyone who was looking at her silently. Murong Shu Qing forced a smile and asked: “What is the matter?”
Xuanyuan Yi felt that she was not feeling that good tonight, so he picked up the cloak and lightly put it on her body. Sensing that she was actually very weak, Xuanyuan Yi said: “You are too tired, I will help you return to rest first.”
Murong Shu Qing smilingly shook her head, and pushed Xuanyuan Yi’s hands that were about to put the cloak on her, she smilingly said: “I am alright, Pei Che, what did you say a moment ago?”
Pei Che was also looking at Murong Shu Qing anxiously, if her wound was split opened again or she fainted tonight because she was too tired, Xuanyuan Yi must take a revenge on him. But looking that her vitality appeared to be alright, he finally said: “I want to ask you, do you have any business dealings with Piao Miao Manor?”
Murong Shu Qing thought for a while, and then answered: “Some.”
“Then, have you ever met Shang Jun?” Even though she might have business dealings with Miao Piao Manor, but it was not necessary that she would meet him. But he actually believed that if that Shang Jun was really out of the ordinary just liked what Lei Yi was saying, then he (SJ) also really wanted to meet this stand out girl (MSQ).
Murong Shu Qing put a smile on her face and nodded, and refreshingly answered: “I have met the person.”
“How is this person?” Pei Che wanted to listen how she evaluated Shang Jun.
Murong Shu Qing’s sentence was slow and clear when she answered: “Very talented, bright, resourceful, and brilliant. One of the people whom Shu Qing admires.”
This unobtrusive praise made Pei Che lightly raised his sword like eyebrows, this was the first time that he had ever heard Murong Shu Qing was unreservedly praising another person, so he could not help but laughed and said: “Oh?! Even Shu Qing is praising this person like this, so I am actually curious.” At the same time, Pei Che did not forget to enjoy Xuanyuan Yi’s expression either. Even though his somewhat ruthless face did not have any change, but he saw that his eyes were flowing some angers that he could not conceal from them.
Xuanyuan Yi slightly tightened up the strength of his hands, and put the cloak on Murong Shu Qing’s shoulder. He did not want her to continue talking, so lightly embracing Murong Shu Qing, he said to Pei Che: “Since this person is so exceptional, send a notice to pay respect tomorrow, and have a detailed discussion with him.”
“Go.” Finished speaking and not waiting for everyone’s reactions, he took the cloak to embrace Murong Shu Qing, and went out of the Master’s tent.
Everyone inside the tent had not recovered, but they could only see Pei Che who was laughing heartily without any reason.
Pei Che was smiling, while he (XY) went out of the Master’s tent, there seemed to be some sour smells inside the tent ~~~ hehe.
After going out of the tent, Murong Shu Qing was somewhat shivering immediately, the night was deep, and it was colder. Even though she already had many layers of clothing on her body, but the wind was still bone-chilling cold. Feeling that Murong Shu Qing was always shivering, Xuanyuan Yi gently sighed, his one hand pulled her waist to put her into his embrace, while his other hand helped to hold on to her hat, it almost looked like she was wrapped with a cloak within his embrace. Murong Shu Qing put and leaned her head on Xuanyuan Yi’s shoulder, she felt that Xuanyuan Yi was moving forward very quickly. She was wrapped inside the cloak, so the cold wind could not brush on her face. Being separated by many layers of winter clothing, she did not feel Xuanyuan Yi’s body temperature, but her waist was held by a pair of strong hands and holding her firmly in his embrace.
The originally short route, plus with Xuanyuan Yi’s qingqong (martial art ability), they returned to the front of Murong Shu Qing’s tent very quickly. Xuanyuan Yi helped Murong Shu Qing to take her cloak off properly, he did not send her in, and only left a sentence: “Rest earlier.” Then he turned around and left.
Murong Shu Qing felt that he was somewhat different tonight, but she did not know where the problem was. When she was just about to enter the tent, suddenly Xuanyuan Yi’s voice came from behind: “Are you familiar with him?”
Murong Shu Qing was startled for a bit, she turned around to see Xuanyuan Yi was within 4-5 meters from her and he was looking at her, so she asked tentatively: “Shang Jun?” He was asking about Shang Jun, right? Xuanyuan Yi did not answer either, but he was still using that eyes that were as deep as the ocean to stare at her. Murong Shu Qing nodded her head a little and answered: “Not bad.”
For a long time, when Murong Shu Qing thought that he did but plan to speak again, Xuanyuan Yi finally asked with a depressing and gloomy voice: “Is he really that good in your heart?”
Murong Shu Qing was startled, how did she want to answer this?! The snow was already getting smaller and smaller, there were some mischievous snowflakes that were floating between the two people occasionally. Murong Shu Qing thought for a while and was just about to start talking, but Xuanyuan Yi’s movement was faster than her, he turned around and rapidly left Murong Shu Qing’s sight.
What was this? Murong Shu Qing was looking around, besides some patrol soldiers, there was no other soul in sight within this camp, so she was somewhat puzzled and raising her head to look at the moon. As it turned out, the moon would actually look brighter after the snow. Suddenly, Murong Shu Qing seemed to understand something in a flash and gently laughed out loud, and turned around to enter the tent.
Was he ___ jealous a moment ago?
So he actually still had such an adorable side.
Actually the “he” that MSQ mentioned in the previous chapter, might be this Shang Jun. The person who told her to visit the nice area near the Capital. MSQ, Huo Zhi Qing, Qi Rui, etc went to this place together. This place where MSQ met Mo Can for the second time and was almost drown in the lake. In that chapter, MSQ made a reference about “that person” who visited that place before. If my guess is right, MSQ has already known Shang Jun for a long time and come to think about it now, I believe MSQ may be the partner that is mentioned above. If I remember correctly from reading the synopsis for book 2, it’s mentioned that she and Shang Jun own a business together, but I can’t remember the name of it. It has to be this Piao Miao Manor, that’s why she got a little bit distracted while General Lei was saying those words. Ehmm, I wonder if my guess is right. We’ll see…
This chapter kinds of remind me that Pei Che is a little bit (a lot) like Xi Lie Yue. Or they actually are similar type of people. They like to tease their best friends & create troubles for them. Hahaha… But this is a cute chapter also. I want to see XY gets jealous.
Remember that qinggong is a martial art skill that can make a person to be able to “fly” or walk rather quickly & easily.
