Another long chapter! And mamabear, are you a fortune teller??? Your comments in ch 133 really came through in this rather sad & happy chapter…
This chapter was translated for only. And only for those people who don’t mind reading unprofessional translation that was being translated FREELY at the translator’s and editor’s own free times.
20 horses and black clothing secret bodyguards were escorting and guarding the left and right of a simple black carriage in the middle, and were galloping in the public road very dazzlingly. Everyone could not help but guess what kind of person who was inside the carriage.
Murong Shu Qing was sitting inside the carriage, the bamboo curtain was hanging down by her side, which was isolating her from any curious peeking from outside. After Mo Can joined them, Wei Na got out of the carriage, and rode a horse with him and followed the carriage from behind. So she was alone inside the carriage now, lazily leaning at the side of the window, and sighing, she always kept a low profile. This kind of situation when she had so many bodyguards now, was also the first time that Yan Yu and Cang Su said that they would not tolerate any mistake in escorting her to return to the Capital. The two people’s unusual solemn expressions made Murong Shu Qing feel that she should not challenge their mental states for the time being.
After going for two days, they finally saw the Capital’s city gate in the evening, but the carriage did not enter the Capital yet, but it rather stopped at the side of the city gate. Murong Shu Qing was puzzled and could hear a slightly hoarse voice that came from outside the hanging curtain: “Qing-er!”
It was him! Murong Shu Qing lightly lifted open the hanging curtain, sure enough, it was Xuanyuan Yi’s somewhat pale and haggard appearance but with his usual resolute face, was outside the carriage. The two people were looking at each other leisurely like this, but Murong Shu Qing smiled, because those pair of deep as ocean eyes were filled with her! From inside his eyes, she could finally see this so-called love, or she should thank Hong Ming who kidnapped her so that she could see those boundless pair of eyes that were completely for her.
Xuanyuan Yi stepped one step forward, and supported Murong Shu Qing’s hand, he helped her get down from the carriage. She had not stood firmly yet, when Murong Shu Qing was already taken into his warm and generous embrace.
Xuanyuan Yi buried his face in between Murong Shu Qing’s neck and hair, and closely wrapped her into his bosom. He wanted to feel her warm body temperature, and confirmed the fragrance from her hair himself, (to make sure) that she really returned into his embrace. The moment that he heard the news about her, he really wished to save her immediately and hurriedly, but he knew even more that he wanted to fully prepare to welcome her! These two days were a very long suffering for him!
Being embraced was somewhat hurting her, but Murong Shu Qing was still smiling when she heard that Xuanyuan Yi continuously mumbled in a whisper by the side of her ear: “Three days, within three days, we will get married immediately!” A feeling of warmth and happiness made her feel somewhat foggy. But the sounds of curiosity and sniggers from the common people who were entering and exiting the Capital, still made Murong Shu Qing to slightly struggle free from Xuanyuan Yi’s embrace. The common people might not recognize that she was Murong Shu Qing, but they would surely recognize this outstanding and celebrated country general, she was afraid that there would be various kind of rumors inside the Capital tomorrow!
Even though everyone would feel that getting married within three days was all of a sudden, but Murong Shu Qing firmly nodded her head and said: “Alright.”
“Shu Qing.” Mo Can’s cold voice came through from behind her. Murong Shu Qing turned around to smile and walk in front of him. When he said that sentence ‘her soul that longed for freedom and could not be restraint’, Mo Can probably thought that they were both ‘close friends’!
Mo Can rarely and softly raised the corners of his mouth, even though it did not look like he was smiling, but for him, that was already very rare. Mo Can’s clear and cold voice sounded peaceful and was somewhat desolate, he looked one glance at Xuanyuan Yi, and Mo Can said in a whisper: “I will not participate in your wedding, I wish the two of you to live to a ripe old age in conjugal bliss in advance.”
Obviously, he did not say this blessing often, so it appeared that he sounded somewhat harsh and awkward.
Shu Qing could make him feel calm and peaceful, perhaps, this was the reason that attracted him to her! But he was a person who did not understand what love was, and he could not even love himself, so he could not love other people even more. So, it would be good that Shu Qing did not belong to him. For him, wandering alone should be his inseparable friend. (😭😭😭)
Just when Mo Can was about to turn around to leave, Murong Shu Qing asked: “Do you want to go and find Chu Yin?”
“En, I want to ask him clearly about some matters.” These past two months, he suddenly found out some matters that made him want to know the woman who gave birth to him?!
Thinking about that exquisite jades, Shu Qing asked: “Is he still at the Shang Tian Bie Yuan (the place near MSQ’s brother)? I have something that I want to return to him.” What Mo Can wanted to ask, was related to his past history! Would it be related to the exquisite jades?!
Mo Can slightly nodded his head once, and looking one glance at Shu Qing, he left behind this sentence: “I take my leave”, and went away with large strides!
Wei Na chased after Mo Can who suddenly changed his direction, and ran to Murong Shu Qing’s front, she sized up Xuanyuan Yi without restraint, was this the man who had moved Murong Shu Qing’s heart emotionally?! He was not that bad, but she liked that ruthless and cold face like Mo Can even more. His (XY) temperament was also quite cold, but Mo Can’s icily arrogant personality could make her heartbeat speed up even quicker. After she completed her evaluation (about XY), she said with a somewhat strange smile: “This man really matches with you! I wish the two of you to live a long and happy life together, I take my leave!”
Murong Shu Qing laughingly shook her head, this woman could still make other people to blush with shame with her straightforward personality! When Wei Na vaulted quickly on her horse, Murong Shu Qing suddenly yelled: “Wei Na.”
Wei Na turned around puzzlingly and looked at Murong Shu Qing, she could only see the same devious smile and she (MSQ) said to her: “Remember the words that you had said yourselves.”
Wei Na generously smiled and said: “No problem.” Then she urged the horse to follow Mo Can.
There was a steam and fiery, frank and sincere woman who loved Mo Can, so it should be a fortunate thing! His lonely rear view from a distance, was followed by a trace of colorful red (shadow), so it would transform lively. Wei Na, I wished that you would give him a different tomorrow.
Yan Yu and Xuanyuan Yi did not understand anything that these two women were saying, so they were mysteriously looking at Cang Su's face that was trying hard to restrain his smile that it looked somewhat strange. Cang Su was actually having a hard time holding off his smile, but who made him feel fortunate to be able to hear their ‘watery and fiery’ conversations!!
Murong Shu Qing turned around to see Cang Su’s smiling face, slightly raising her eyebrows, Murong Shu Qing slowly walked to his front, and strongly patted his shoulder once, she said in a whisper: “Do you also want to try this interesting kind of livelihood?!”
Looking at Cang Su’s defeated face in an instant, Murong Shu Qing’s got into the carriage happily, and smilingly said: “Let’s go.”
Her speech just barely left out, Xuanyuan Yi’s tall figure also barged into the carriage, fortunately, the carriage was big enough, so once Xuanyuan Yi entered, it did not seem that the carriage was too crowded at all. Xuanyuan Yi took Murong Shu Qing into his embrace, and softly caressed her soft and shiny hair.
Murong Shu Qing was leaning on Xuanyuan Yi, and could clearly hear the sound of his heartbeats, that came through from his garment and appeared to fall on her heart. Some people said that being embraced by someone was an exquisite posture, definitely two people who were being closed to each other, but one could never see the face of the other person. In fact, whether one could see or could not see (the other person’s face), what was so important about it anyway?! They were just infatuated with each other, and only wanted to cuddle with each other comfortingly and happily. If one lost this kind of feeling, even if one was closed to the other person, and looked at the other person’s face everyday, that would only be an outer appearance!
Even though she knew that Lu Yi did not die, but she had not seen her today, so Murong Shu Qing was still worried about her, and asked: “Where is Lu Yi?”
“She had returned to the Qi family’s home to wait for your news.” He did not expect that the girl was very stubborn, originally, he wanted to send her back to the Murong family’s home, but she would not agree to it. She firmly insisted on following them until they had some news about Qing-er, and then she promised that she would return to the Qi family’s home to wait for her!
It was good that she was alright, so Murong Shu Qing took a long relax breath, and said: “Then, we will return to the Qi family’s home now!” She did not know whether or not Lu Yi was able to help her keep the exquisite jades, fortunately at that time, she did not have them, otherwise Wu Ming would certainly take them away!
Xuanyuan Yi raised his eyebrows, and held Murong Shu Qing’s hand, he disapprovingly asked: “Do you want to live at the Qi family’s home?” He originally planned to take her directly to the General’s manor, this was after all Xuan Tian Cheng’s Capital, so he would not feel relieved to leave her alone again!
Murong Shu Qing slowly sat her body up, and looked at Xuanyuan Yi’s eyes: “Otherwise, you think that an unmarried daughter from a wealthy family should live at the husband’s manor before having a ritual kneeling to heaven and earth (wedding ceremony), or do you also want to skip escorting the bride? I actually do not mind it.” It was better like this, the marriage in this ancient era was a lot more inconvenient than the modern era. It was good if she could skip some (customs), and she could also be less tormented (by the many annoying wedding customs)!
Xuanyuan Yi was holding Murong Shu Qing’s shoulders, and said this sentence: “I do mind!!” How could she be this ‘free to bother’ about her own wedding ah!! Were women not care the most about these!! Xuanyuan Yi felt so powerless that he did not know whether to laugh or cry, he guessed that if he did not oppose to it, she would probably skip inviting the guests also, and just directly paid respect to each other!!
Murong Shu Qing recklessly shrugged her shoulders, and with a ‘you do whatever you want to do’ expression, so it made Xuanyuan Yi to helplessly hang down his head. He leaned on Murong Shu Qing’s shoulder and sighed, in the future, he would not need to ask her opinion about this kind of matters, otherwise it would only make her furious!
Xuanyuan Yi tried to appease Murong Shu Qing with a defeated appearance, she could not help but lowly smile. But Xuanyuan Yi suddenly lifted his head up, and both of his hands were clasping Murong Shu Qing’s face, both of their noses were tightly affixed and their breathings seemed to mix together, and were somewhat blended (together), (the situation) was very profoundly ambiguous. As if he breathed a little stronger, and their lips would be able to touch together!
Fortunately at this time, Yan Yu’s voice came through from outside the window timely, and he said: “Master, we have arrived.”
Xuanyuan Yi sighed, when Murong Shu thought that he would let go of her, but Xuanyuan Yi actually leaned over, and gave her a deep kiss! The warmth and overbearing breaths made Murong Shu Qing felt somewhat dizzy, so Xuanyuan Yi softly patted Shu Qing’s face, and smilingly said: “Rest properly, I will come and find you tomorrow.” Then he dodged out of the carriage!
Xuanyuan Yi looked at the carriage again, there were Yan Yu and Cang Su, along with the 20 secret bodyguards, so she should be safe!! In three days, he would give her the most perfect wedding! Xuanyuan Yi stepped up on the horse’s abdomen, so Zhan Hun wildly and hurriedly went away!
Murong Shu Qing waited until the sound of the horse’s hooves were far away, and after her breathing was normal, she just lifted open the hanging curtain. Even before she stood firmly on the ground, she was already welcomed by two tear-stained and charming faces!
Aiyo, I have a bad feeling that they should just get married right away instead of waiting for 3 more days. C’mon XY, your opponent is The Emperor!! You should prepare to marry MSQ right after she returns to the Capital. Why do you still need 3 more days for???!!! Anything can happen within these 3 days!!!
Ahhhh… so sad for my Mo Can. 😭😭😭 I’m crying while translating this chapter. Meanie author, why did you need to create Mo Can as a second male lead in this novel??!! It’s very rare that I have a thing for a second male lead in novels or dramas. I think Mo Can is the second time that I actually fall in love with a second male lead character in a novel. And I have read tons of novels in the past, but I don’t usually fall for a second male lead. I remember when I was reading Chaos of Beauty, that was the first time that I fell in love with the second male lead also. Gosh, I was bawling my eyes out when the General died. I can’t even remember his name anymore, I want to say General Lin. I could still picture the scene when he died after he fought for the enemy. 😭😭😭 Thank goodness that Mo Can doesn’t die but it’s still so sad that he really likes MSQ but yet he will not get her!! But I think Wei Na is definitely more suitable for Mo Can so I’m rooting for them to be together!!! Even though I love Mo Can for me, but I have to admit that Wei Na is a good candidate for Mo Can. And as long as Mo Can is happy, then I'll be happy too!
Is there any reader who likes to write his or her own novel??? Maybe he or she can write a fanfic novel for Mo Can & Wei Na, Pei Che & Shang Xiao. Hahahaha…. When I was in junior high, which is equivalent as middle school here in US, I actually liked to write a short romance novels. Hehehehe… But it’s been a LONG time ago so I don’t think I can even start to write a novel now.
