Fighting (Part 3)

“Qing-er.” A man’s sound could suddenly be heard, it made Murong Shu Qing who was getting caught up in her own train of thought, startled. Lifting her eyes to see the man who came, it was actually Xuanyuan Yi, and Pei Che was following him from behind. She bafflingly asked: “The fight is done?!” It did not seem that she got caught up in her own thought for a long time, the end of the war was actually a lot quicker than she could imagine. 

“Cang Yue stopped fighting, and pulled back for 10 li (5,000 m) to camp there.” Xuanyuan Yi also did not think that after they were just fighting, Cang Yue would suddenly stop fighting. Walking to Murong Shu Qing’s side, Xuanyuan Yi stroke Murong Shu Qing’s forehead, and asked: “Qing-er, is your body a little better?” She really did not look good this morning, so he was afraid that her old injury relapsed, Xuanyuan Yi planned to make the military doctor to look at her.

Murong Shu Qing could see the way he was thinking, so she pulled his hand, and smilingly said: “I am alright, I was only a little tired, I am a lot better now.” Looking at Pei Che who came in and sat down to drink tea on his own initiative, Murong Shu Qing smilingly asked: “You guys did not chase after them, so it seemed that Cang Yue was a lot harder to handle than you think.”

Xuanyuan Yi could see that her vitality was really a little better, so he supported her to sit down, and nodded his head to answer: “En, they also use the trebuchets to throw out the explosives, but their trebuchets have not been modified so they use a lot more people. But I think that Cang Yue has a lot more explosives than my army, fortunately, the soldiers in my army have been trained to be able to hit the target with one throw. Moreover, they attacked a city so we were only defending our place, so we have to hold on to a good geographical position. I can see that we have a small victory today, so I think they will want to fight again very quickly.”

Murong Shu Qing thought for a while, and asked: “How many explosives do we still have left?!”

“About 20%.” Pei Che’s answer was somewhat difficult and rough, it was only a day and they already wasted so many explosives. If this would continue for several days, he was afraid that it would be difficult to resist Cang Yue.

But Murong Shu Qing did not appear to mind, and smilingly said: “I am guessing that they do not have many explosives either.” 

How could she was certain like this? Pei Che curiously asked: “Oh, why did you say it like that?” 

According to Xuanyuan Yi’s hypothesis a moment ago, Cang Yue should not have any new weapons either, their level of explosives should be equally matched with us. This made Murong Shu Qing’s heart feel a little calm, so she faintly said: “Their explosives should be developed successfully fairly recently, so it is not realistic that they will have a lot of raw materials to make the explosives in the army. They surely bought them within the vicinity of Lin Feng Guan border, and the raw materials within Lin Feng Guan are also limited, so they are unlikely to have many explosives either. When Yan Yu bought them last time, he already bought them within 100 li radius from Lin Feng Guan border so they were completed gone, so we do not have many explosives, in that case, they surely do not have many either.” 

Murong Shu Qing took the green tea with her hand, and smilingly said: “I am guessing that ultimately, you guys still need to use the most primitive method to settle the war.” 

Her way of thinking made Pei Che’s vitality rise up, and he smilingly said: “If it is like this, this is actually really good, You Xiao is certainly not a well-match opponent of Xuanyuan Yi if we have a direct confrontation.”

Xuanyuan Yi was holding Murong Shu Qing’s hand, and seized the teacup that was on her hand, the tea was already cold, and her body was not good, but she still drank this much tea. So Xuanyuan Yi softly warned her: “In the future, you need to drink less tea, I will have the kitchen to make you soup.” 

Murong Shu Qing shrugged her shoulders, and showed him a ‘you have a final say’ manner, but behind him, this was still her business.

Her obedient manner made Xuanyuan Yi to raise his eyebrows, and looking at her harmless smile, she did not look like she was planning something behind him. When he was still thinking what to say, a man’s voice made a report outside the tent: “Reporting to General, many of the Generals are already waiting in the Master’s tent for a long time.” 

Pei Che and Xuanyuan Yi looked at each other, Shu Qing gently smiled and pushed them out of the tent gate, and smilingly said: “You two quickly go and discuss the military affairs.” 

Pei Che was smiling with his clear voice, and went out of the tent first, Xuanyuan Yi turned his body around to caress her hair, and softly said: “Have a nice rest.”

“Alright.” After Murong Shu Qing nodded her head, then Xuanyuan Yi left the tent.

Murong Shu Qing looked towards the sunset from outside the tent, that was almost falling from the horizon, she thought that the war that was started half a year ago, and experienced a deadlock, would not end soon.

The early winter day seemed to be somewhat cold, the rising sun revealed a golden charm in color, Murong Shu Qing was standing on the top of the hillside at the back of the camp. Extending both of her arms, she stretched them out, how long did she not wake up so early like this. Looking at the layer of bright golden sunshine, Murong Shu Qing softly sighed, she still liked the afterglow from the sunset even more. That faint longing and fascinating turn around from being free to vanish gradually, she liked it more. 

In a distant place, a black figure as if it was a lightning, wildly rushed to come over, this made Murong Shu Qing perked up a shallow smile, and yelled in a loud voice: “Bing Po…!” She knew that it always ran around in circle within the vicinity of the camp every morning, but she actually did not have any interest to woke up early to see it in the past. But she needed it today. 

Hearing her shout, Bing Po was excited even more, so it happily and rapidly arrived in front of her, it raised the front of its hooves, so the snowflakes that were not melting completely, were splashing all over Murong Shu Qing. Murong Shu Qing forced a smile and softly patted off the snowflakes that were on her, she strongly embraced Bing Po’s neck, and smilingly said: “Long time no see, are you alright?” 

Bing Po did not appear to take her embrace seriously, and still continuously went to her face to blast some air, and intimately rubbed against her neck. Murong Shu Qing used her face to stick it on Bing Po’s forehead, while she gently caressed its gentle mane, she lowly said: “Can you help me with something?”

Bing Po seemed to feel that Shu Qing was different today, so it was not tried to be intimate with her anymore, and calmly looked at her eyes that were still smiling. For a good while, Bing Po took its head to approach Murong Shu Qing’s neck again, so she thought that it wanted to rub against her again. But Bing Po only softly neighed by her ear, then it walked towards the direction of the camp. After walking for a couple of steps, it looked at Murong Shu Qing who was still motionless, it was proudly standing in the wind, and waiting for her. 

Murong Shu Qing slowly walked to Bing Po’s side, and turned around to get on it, Bing Po understood what she wished for, so she did not need to talk too much. Gently patted Bing Po’s buttock, it turned around to look one glance at Shu Qing, and pretended that it was dissatisfied with this bad habit of hers. Murong Shu Qing had not had time to laugh, and Bing Po suddenly rushed wildly. This made her cry out in fear and hurriedly clamp both of her legs, and pull Bing Po’s mane. One person and one horse were whizzing and running towards the Master’s tent. 

After passing through a night rest, Cang Yue really came to challenge them to fight again this early morning, Dong Yu also had a response to the scheme from yesterday’s night deployment. So Xuanyuan Yi was just about to gather the troops, and prepared to meet with Cang Yue head-on. This battle was already too long.

Just when Xuanyuan Yi was prepared to get on his horse, he heard a shout that came from a distant place: “Hold on, Xuanyuan.” A pure black fine horse ran quickly to come, it attracted all of the people’s attentions. Very quickly, Bing Po’s impressive bearing was in front of everyone, Murong Shu Qing was somewhat trembling due to the cold wind, when she dismounted from the horse. Xuanyuan Yi supported her waist, and gently took her into his bosom, her ice-cold hands made him to pucker his eyebrows again. She rushed over this time, she surely had another important matter, so Xuanyuan Yi asked while he was tightly holding both of her hands: “Qing-er, what is wrong?”

Shu Qing slightly smiled, and did not answer, she softly struggled free from Xuanyuan Yi’s hands, and Murong Shu Qing was holding Bing Po’s neck again. She stuck to the side of its ear, gently and lightly caressed its forehead with longing, and with a clear and shallow voice, she faintly begged and said: “Help me bring him back, all right?’l 

Bing Po softly licked on her neck for a while, and retreated back a couple of steps to make a long neigh. Its tall front hooves, with its arrogant and beautiful expressions, and that ear-splitting sound, appeared to be its promise to Shu Qing. 

Shu Qing turned her body around, and tightly gripped Xuanyuan Yi’s hands, she looked at those firm eyes that looked like a deep ocean, and Shu Qing begged and said with her usual clear and shallow voice: “Help me bring it back, all right?!”

Caressing her cold cheeks, she actually came over in a hurry this morning, just because she wanted Bing Po to accompany him in the battlefield? Who said that she was very cold and apathetic, the more one approached her, understood her, the more one would understand that she actually had a soft heart and warmth towards the people whom she loved. This kind of her really made him to love her even more, and made him feel fascinated by her. Not only that she was intelligent, but she was also very special, because of her calmness and that hard to reach, but exceptionally warmth affection. Knowing that she was anxious about Bing Po and his own self, Xuanyuan Yi solemnly nodded his head: “Alright!” This short word and with a muffled voice, but it felt like a heavy stone, was soothing Murong Shu Qing’s heart. Gently kissing her forehead, Xuanyuan Yi said: “Wait for me!”

“En!” Murong Shu Qing smiled and nodded her head, she hoped that the two promises that she received today, would be honored.

The accompanying officers and soldiers had already waiting for a long time, so Xuanyuan Yi was looking one glance at her again, and he firmly turns around to get on the horse. Bing Po already had a top-notch saddle, this was the first time that it had a saddle, so its black hair was moving in the wind. Its eyes were uninhibited and appeared to be formidable and arrogant, so Xuanyuan Yi patted its back, and smilingly said: “Bing Po, who will have thought that we can fight side by side this quickly!” Today, they must have reasons and promises to win, Qing-er, wait for me to come back.

Xuanyuan Yi softly and lightly shouted, and Bing Po knew what he meant and jumped to go.

Xuanyuan Yi and Bing Po really matched up, as they both were arrogant and uninhibited, absolutely unrestrained, untamed with no training. Watching their backs vanished into the dust, Murong Shu Qing was still standing in the middle of the camp for a very long time. The sun was rising higher and higher, it also shone on the corners of her mouth that showed a trace of smile. 

Today, there was no continuous explosion sound like yesterday, only several explosion sounds, but one could hear the continuous horses’ hooves and intermittent shouting sounds that made Lu Yi feel even scarier. But it looked like Miss was a lot more peaceful than yesterday, and she seemed not to worry too much. Since she came back in the morning until now, she had been reading all along. Putting the green tea in her hand, on the low table, Lu Yi said in a whisper: “Miss, your tea.”

Murong Shu Qing raised her head from the book, kneaded her somewhat stiffened neck, it was not that she was not anxious. But since this was only a simple army battle, Xuanyuan Yi should be able to deal with this. Taking the tea, and gently pursing her mouth, Murong Shu Qing was just about to praise Lu Yi, when a man’s voice came through from outside the door: “Miss Murong?”

Lu Yi looked one glance at Murong Shu Qing, and saw that she nodded, so Lu Yi said towards the person who was outside the tent: “Come in.” 

Xiao Rong was holding a tray, and there was a stew on it, he smilingly came in, looking at him, Lu Yi smilingly said: “Xiao Rong, what is the matter?” Lu Yi had seen this young soldier for many times, the person was very good, and he took care of Miss. So seeing him, she had a good impression in her heart. 

Xiao Rong put the tray down on the low table, went to Murong Shu Qing’s front, he foolishly and smilingly said: “Nothing, the General ordered this before leaving, that the kitchen should give Miss some stew to supplement her health.” 

Xuanyuan Gongzi was really attentive, Lu Yi satisfyingly carried the stew, and opened up the lid, a strong chicken stock flavor assailed her nose. Picking up the bowl, she gave it to Murong Shu Qing. Murong Shu Qing took it, and looked one glance at Xiao Rong, she scooped one spoon and barely put it into her mouth. Suddenly, she put it down, and said to Lu Yi: “Lu Yi, Jun put my chess book there at her tent, you go and help me get it back.”

Chess book? Lu Yi was puzzled, Miss was rarely playing chess, and rarely reading any chess book either, how could there was a chess book at Master Shang’s tent? Even though she had a doubt, but Lu Yi still answered: “Yes.” 

Just before Lu Yi turned around to go out of the tent, suddenly she felt that her neck hurt, and could only let an ‘ah!’ sound, and then her eyes were black out and she fainted.

Murong Shu Qing put down the chicken soup that was on her hand, and looked towards Lu Yi, fortunately, she was only fainted. She originally wanted to send her away so she did not get hurt, but now, it appeared that they would not let go off the people who were inside the tent. Gently sighing, Murong Shu Qing asked with a light smile: “How should I address you?” She knew that he would make a move, but she did not think that it would be this quick.

“I still make you able to see me through.” Accompanying with a sneer, a cold woman’s voice could be heard, together with a faint self-mocking attitude. A thin white face was lightly thrown on the ground. But once the mask was off, it was not a common white pale face, and there was no color on her face. This time, it was a ten years old young lady’s face, but that cold and cruel voice, along with her expressionless face and this thick cosmetic, were really not in harmony. Murong Shu Qing felt that the face that she had last time, suited her even more. But clearly, this face was also not her original appearance, could it be that this woman went out with several faces everyday! 

The woman coldly looked at her, and asked: “Why is it that you can always see me through?” She was very curious, she had never made a mistake in her face changing method, but why would she be able to recognize her once she came here. Last time, it was that servant girl who had been serving her for more than ten years, but she only met with this young soldier for several times?! Why was this Murong Shu Qing so different like this! 

Sian’s notes:

Gosh, I get goosebumps whenever there’s a scene between MSQ & Bing Po. Awwww… I think their relationship is so much better than any of the guys. 😂😂😂 Bing Po & MSQ are definitely soulmates as they really know each other despite one is a horse that can’t really talk.

Oh no, Hong Ming is trying to kidnap MSQ again?!!
