Opportunity (Part 2)
Casually wandering for one whole afternoon, Murong Shu Qing did not have any choice but to say that this garden was beautiful that one could imagine, but the winding pathways was also very excessive. As a result, she got lost! Looking that the sun was slanting to the West gradually, Murong Shu Qing could not walk anymore, and while she kneaded her hips, she said towards the air: “I am lost, I will have to trouble you guys to bring me back!”
After a moment, there was a shadow who came out from behind the tree, he did not say anything, but silently walked in front. So Murong Shu Qing followed him for one incense burning time (15 min), and she was finally back at the garden where she left earlier. It seemed that she guessed it incorrectly that this place was actually not that big, but it looked like Shang Jun’s forest, so there was definitely a type of battle array here.
She thought that she should ask Shang Jun for an advice about the strange number method (entrapment) some other time, the people from here seemed to like to arrange this battle array to trap people!
Just barely walking into her room, she just saw Xuan Tian Cheng who was sitting in front of the table, and he smiled looking at her. There were already a table full of dishes on the table, it seemed that he was waiting for her to eat dinner. However, he did not show any annoyance even though she came back so late, but he waved at her, and said gently: “You must be hungry, eat something!”
“En, thank you!” Murong Shu Qing did not resist his gentleness to her, so she walked to the front of the table, and sat down next to him, it was not necessary to make it difficult for his (hungry) stomach. Moreover, when he felt that everything was within his hands, one would feel happy, so this was very normal.
Taking the swallow nest porridge to Murong Shu Qing’s front, he saw that she was kneading her hips from time to time, so Xuan Tian Cheng anxiously and helplessly said: “Your foot just got better, the physician said not to walk around too much.” He knew that she went out of this room, if one said that she wanted to escape, he would not believe it. Based on her intelligent, she would not be impetuous to make any useless actions.
If one did not see any food, then one would not think of the food, but once one saw the food, one would really be hungry. So while Murong Shu Qing was eating, she nodded her head and said: “En, I know.” Yielding that she should not stroll around, as she estimated that her foot was swollen now.
Murong Shu Qing lowered her head to eat, Xuan Tian Cheng was just calmly looking at her, he did not know that a woman could actually eat to her heart’s content like this. Since he was young and growing up in the palace, from the Empress and Imperial concubines, to the female officials, everyone was delicately and slowly chewing things, and always paid attention to their upright identities. He did not say that Murong Shu Qing’s eating (habit) was not graceful, it was rather interesting to see her completely enjoy eating like this. She did not confine herself to any etiquette or posture, and she let him see that she had a big appetite.
After eating enough, Murong Shu Qing finally lifted her head up, and said: “I want to borrow some books to read from you.”
Xuan Tian Cheng’s eyes were shining, and he asked: “What kind of books do you like to read?” He was actually very interested, what kind of books that she leisurely liked to read, was it about song & poetry, or history, or biography?!
Murong Shu Qing smiled and answered: “Any book will do!” It seemed that she had read any type of books, in any case, it was just to pass the time. She would not try to learn deliberately and remember the knowledge from the book. After she read it, if she forgot about it, then she forgot about it, if she remembered it, then she would remember it, so everything was alright. So, for her, reading any book would never give her any pressure, or be boring for her.
Xuan Tian Cheng was somewhat disappointed, and he smilingly said: “Alright, I will have someone to give you some books.” Originally, he thought that he could chat with her about what kind of books that she liked, but it seemed that he could not find any topic to speak with her.
Murong Shu Qing stood beside the round table, and slowly walked to the soft chair by the side of the room, and smilingly answered: “Thank you.”
Looking at her limping appearance, Xuan Tian Cheng softly sighed, he supported her hand and helped her to sit on the soft chair, and covered her with a thin quilt, then said: “In the future, you do not need to say thank you to me! Whatever you want, I will give it to you.” What he wanted, was not her appreciation.
He would give me everything, except freedom! Murong Shu Qing smiled in her heart, what he wanted to give, was always something that he wanted to give, this was exactly a basis for a monarch. Not wanting to argue with him anymore, and it was not necessary to show her own willpower either. They were mature enough, and both of them would not be able to persuade the other person!
With a shallow smile on her face, she did not say anything again, and Murong Shu Qing was reclining on the soft chair, and closing her eyes.
She was reclining calmly like this, and turning a blind eye to him. All of the women by his side were always trying to find a topic to speak with him, and trying so hard to please him. But her, did she really dislike and tired looking one glance at him?! Extending his hand, he wanted to touch her tranquil face, but he stopped and put his hand down embarrassingly. Shu Qing, there would be a day when you would accept me.
Xuan Tian Cheng turned around, and slowly went outside.
Until the sounds of footsteps were gradually far away, Murong Shu Qing slowly opened her eyes, it was impossible between him and her in the end, everything would be useless. Sitting her body up, Murong Shu Qing lightly smiled and said: “Who is there, come out!” Inside the room, there were more than her and Xuan Tian Cheng’s smells, but the other person concealed it too good, so it did not seem like he was there.
During this time, she was already accustomed to be kidnapped by some people, so even if Hong Ming showed up in front of her, she would not think that it would be surprising!
But, when that hidden black person slowly came out of the screen and was shown by the candle light, Murong Shu Qing could not calm down and stood up. She startlingly opened her eyes big, but this time, it was a nice surprise….
“Mo Can?!” Murong Shu Qing stood up from the soft chair, and ran to Mo Can’s front, his face was filled with frostiness and his eye were cold and ruthless, just like before, but there was a faint smile that was flowing from his eyes.
“It is really you.” Murong Shu Qing could not help but to reach out her hand to touch Mo Can’s arms, his warm body temperature told her that it was really Mo Can who was in front of her. Recalling the moment when he fell of the cliffs, Murong Shu Qing still had some lingering fears, so she was leaning softly on Mo Can’s shoulder, and only felt that her heart was somewhat tranquil. She really needed to tell herself that he was really alive.
“Let go of her.” Murong Shu Qing had not figured out what the matter was, only felt that her waist that was embraced by Mo Can, was released and she was helped to stand up. With great difficulty, Murong Shu Qing tried to stand firm, and she looked towards one place, and could only see a red dress woman whose face was angry and was standing there. The woman pointed her finger, and said to Mo Can: “I do not stop you to come and see her, save her, but you do not need to embrace her like this! You are mine!”
The woman’s words made Murong Shu Qing to raise her eyebrows, she felt that once Mo Can heard her, his body was stiffened, and soon after, he coldly said: “Shut up, you do not need to care about my matter.”
Even though he said it that way, but Mo Can’s hands that were actually embracing Murong Shu Qing’s waist, were put back down. The woman did not appear to pay any attention with this small details, so she still pouted her mouth, and humphed: “In any case, you are not allowed to embrace her!”
Mo Can still looked cold and indifferent, but Murong Shu Qing could see from his eyes that he did not look like he loathed her, there was only an understanding and helplessness looks. The atmosphere between the two people was unusual, and there was also that sharp contrasting and confrontation of inner powers. Murong Shu Qing was very interested, but if she had not spoken anything, then these two people would regard that she did not exist anymore. To satisfy her own curiosity, Murong Shu Qing pulled the corner of Mo Can’s clothing, and asked: “This young lady is?!”
The woman stepped forward one step, and walked to Murong Shu Qing’s front, she slightly raised her head, and said: “I am Wei Na!”
Murong Shu Qing was startled, and smilingly said: “Wei Na? It is a very unusual name.” She looked at the woman who was in front of her again, she had a young face, that was brimming with youthfulness. She was different than a woman who had a white skin, the woman showed a slightly darker skin that looked even healthier, with a delicate face and pride and straightforward expressions. Her neat red dress set off a young hot pepper look alike!
The woman was not pretentious at all, she slightly and softly raised her head, and answered: “Thank you!”
Her proud appearance amused Murong Shu Qing who was lightly smiling, but Mo Can coldly looked one glance at her, this idiot, other people were randomly saying (that her name was unusual), but she could be completely proud like this!
Wei Na grinned and waved to Mo Can, she lied down on the soft chair that Murong Shu Qing was just resting a moment ago. She grabbed an apple with her hand and put it in her mouth, turning her head around, she ambiguously said: “Do not glare at me, I will not disturb the two of you, you guys can chat!”
In other words, this woman was whimsical and willful, but she was also a woman who was filled with free spirit. She spoke and did things in a straightforward and in order, but she was not completely unreasonable. Murong Shu Qing actually felt that this Wei Na was very adorable, she just did not know where Mo Can could find this treasure!
No longer paying attention to her, Mo Can said to Murong Shu Qing: “I will take you away.”
But Murong Shu Qing pulled Mo Can to sit in front of the table, and poured a cup of tea for him, then she shook her head, and with a light smile, she said: “I can not go now!”
Yay!!! My Mo Can is back…. But what??!!!! Who’s is this woman??? She dares to claim Mo Can as hers!!!! I’ll fight her to the death!!! 😬😬 Good job, Mo Can!! Tell her to shut up! Humph!!! I wonder if the woman saved Mo Can while he was injured so badly. MSQ seemed to like this woman & she seems to look like an ok girl, but Mo Can is still mine!!!
