Locking One’s Door And Refusing To See Anybody
The warm sunshine that passed through the window, shone inside the tent, the snow was falling for several days so it accumulated quite a few of snow on the ground, everything looked as white as snow. The sunshine that was shining on the snow, was also showing a dazzling radiance of the white snow. Especially that tall white plum flower that was covered by a thick snow, the white plum flower was sparkling with the frozen snowflakes, but it hardly influenced its domineering, beautiful and blooming flowers. Murong Shu Qing somewhat lost in her thought and was watching at the strong white plum flower trunk attentively, she admired at its perseverance and unyielding character.
The green tea that was in her hands, was steaming faintly, so the warmth that she felt on her palms transferred to her heart little by little. Xing Hun and Xing Yue should already receive her gifts, since she was not by their sides, the lanterns that she made on her own, must arrive there!
“Master.” Two clear and cold male sounds came through from behind the screen.
Murong Shu Qing let them enter the room, and asked with some impatience: “Yan Yu, is there any news about Mo Can?”
Yan Yu slightly lowered his head, and lowly answered: “No.”
It had been one month, even though she had already heard this disappointed answer for countless of times, but Murong Shu Qing still insistingly answered: “Continue looking.”
Mo Can, no matter what, she must find him, she wanted to see the person if he was alive, and she wanted to see the corpse if he was dead, one day that she did not see him, was also another day that she would not give up! Murong Shu Qing’s hands that were holding the teacup, tightened gradually, her clenched joints were somewhat discolored. Cang Su and Yan Yu looked one glance at each other, but they did not have strengths to speak either.
“Master, your letter.” Cang Su fished out a sealed letter from his bosom, and handed over to Murong Shu Qing’s front, he did not like it that she was immersed in guilt and sadness.
Murong Shu Qing took the letter, and could only see several bold, powerful and big letters ‘Shu Qing, Qi’ that were written impressively on the top, the inscription name was __ the Qi seal, could it be: “Maternal grandfather?” Murong Shu Qing put down the tea on her hands, and opened to look at it, the written characters were not many, but one could see that Murong Shu Qing knitted her elegant eyebrows again.
Folding the letter properly, and putting it on the low table, Murong Shu Qing picked up the green tea from the table again, the tea was already cool down, the light yellow tea was as bright and delightful as when it was hot. But it already lost the warm and refined fragrance, but there was slightly tart and sweet after taste. Murong Shu Qing softly shook the teacup, and faintly said: “Cang Su, arrange for someone at the Capital to spread rumors that the Murong’s family and Xuanyuan’s family are related by marriage, they were engaged to be married before she was born, and are a perfect pair. The impact must be big, I want the ordinary people, government officials and noble people to be aware of this.”
Within Maternal grandfather’s letter, he revealed that the Emperor already had a desire to use the Murong’s family for his own good, so bringing her as an Imperial concubine was the quickest and most effective way, and he could not wait any longer. It seemed that she also needed to make a move.
“Yes.” Cang Su and Yan Yu were just about to go out of the tent, but they turned around again to anxiously look at Murong Shu Qing whose face was somewhat pale. Was it really alright to leave her by herself in the army camp like this?
Murong Shu Qing met with the two people who looked somewhat hesitated and were anxious, so she laughingly said: “You all can go, I am inside the army camp, and there are Fan Feng and Lu Yi by my side, there will not be anything.” This arrow injury that she had, really made these two experts suffered their self-esteems. They felt defeated for a long time, and she was completely successful in making her to be a porcelain doll type, so she would break down with one bump!
Fan Feng was selected carefully by them, his agility and martial arts could not be doubted. Even though they were still anxious, but the two people still gave courtesy to Murong Shu Qing, and turned around to leave afterwards.
Lu Yi looked at the sky and it was not early anymore, when she was just about to go and get lunch, and lifted opened the curtain, one figure who kept going back and forth, startled her. With one hand, she was supporting her heart that was wildly palpitating, while Lu Yi retreated for several steps. Her sudden movement also made the person who was going back and forth, startled. The two people were looking at each other for a good moment, once Lu Yi breathed relaxingly, she said: “Xiao Rong, what are you doing walking back and forth in front of the tent?” He scared her so much!
Xiao Rong had not thought properly whether or not he wanted to enter, and just seeing Lu Yi, he answered with some stuttering: “I, I want to look for Miss Murong.”
Their loud frightening noises outside, had already heard by Murong Shu Qing, so she smilingly called out: “Come in and speak.”
Xiao Rong heard Murong Shu Qing’s voice, and he was frightened and seemed to want to run away immediately, but it was too late to run away as Lu Yi was already dragging him to enter the tent. Staring to look at Murong Shu Qing who was wearing a black dress, sitting in front of the table and sipping her tea with her shallow smile, he could not say anything for a long time.
Murong Shu Qing secretly laughed, did her head grow a long horn?! It made this youngster wanted to run away when he heard her voice, and made this person look so foolish. Unable to endure his foolish appearance like this, Lu Yi pushed his shoulder and said: “Did you not look for Miss? Why are you not saying anything?”
Xiao Rong finally recovered, this black dress person who was without any makeup and drinking her tea, as it turned out, being leisurely was also a type of beauty! Realizing that his own sight was too rude, he promptly lowered his head.
Still not speaking? Murong Shu Qing remembered when she just entered the camp, Xiao Rong was fair and firm, he would not submit to force, what was wrong with him now! Having no alternative, Murong Shu Qing could only ask smilingly: “Was it the General who asked you to come to me?”
Xiao Rong promptly waved his hand, and urgently said: “No, no, General said that nobody was allowed to disturb your rest.” Because of this order, he had conflicting views of whether or not he wanted to speak to Miss Murong!
No? So, as it turned out, she could feel peaceful and quiet for these past few days because of his order. Since it was not Xuanyuan Yi, in that case: “The Military Adviser asked you to look for me?” Murong Shu Qing was pouring tea, while she smiled.
Xiao Rong nodded his head and answered: “En.” Miss Murong was very smart, no wonder that the Military Adviser said that Miss Murong would be able to break the battle arrays.
“What is going on?”
Xiao Rong was hesitating again for a moment, and then he answered: “The Military Adviser asked me to come and see __ if you feel a little better.”
Murong Shu Qing raised her eyebrows and smilingly asked: “Then?”
“Then, then ___”
There was a question by one of the readers on why sometimes I used ___ in the sentence. I'm just following the raw. I believe that underscore means that the sentence isn't finished & someone interrupts the sentence or there's a pause in a sentence or someone is scared of/hesitating in saying something. So it can be a lot of things & depends on the context of the sentence. 😃
