I’m releasing this chapter a couple hours earlier due to the cliffhanger from last chapter. ☺️ Happy New Year all!!
Most of you actually guessed correctly who the one black dress person was, but the other person was not the current Dong Yu’s Emperor but a future…. The key word from the previous chapter was a future powerful person & I didn’t say it had to be a man. 😉 So who is this trouble maker?
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. So rude & entitled people aren’t welcome to read this translation!!! So GO AWAY….

Spark (Part 2)
The moonlight was extremely dark, so Murong Shu Qing did not have any choice but to walk to the front of the courtyard, even then she was barely able to look clearly at the two people who were fighting. Yan Yu was following her closely, the other bodyguards who were protecting Murong Shu Qing secretly also appeared, and they were standing everywhere within the courtyard, so they could protect Murong Shu Qing in the middle. Nobody was doing anything yet, they were only quietly observing the two people who were in the middle of the courtyard.
One of the two people who was fighting did not put on a mask, so Murong Shu Qing slightly narrowed her eyes, the reflection from the moon was rocking gently, so she was still unable to see their appearances clearly. But those pair of cold eyes made Murong Shu Qing able to see it clearly, it was Mo Can. Nobody’s eyes were so cold that they made her heart tremble when she saw them, it was not because she was afraid, but it was rather because they were the type that did not have any emotions and were so cold that they would make her feel so anxious.
The masked person’s martial art was not weak either, but after several moves, the masked person could barely withstand the fight, even trying to dodge seemed hard. Mo Can captured and trapped the masked person’s right hand, and hit it with strength, the sound of a bone being displaced seemed to be heard especially clearly during the dark night. The masked person was groaning in pain, this sound was not loud but it startled Murong Shu Qing so she breathed a mouthful of cold air! Promptly stepping forward for several steps, that slender body shape, that dark black hair, that bright almond pair of eyes, moreover, that constrained low sound a moment ago, heavens, it was her _____
The other hand of the masked person that had not been injured, was still fighting back, it made Mo Can’s cold eyes flashed through a trace of impatient, his one fish blow was going to land.
Murong Shu Qing cried out in alarm with a loud voice, it made him stop his movement in a flash. This was the first time that he saw this woman turned pale with fright. Even when she was actually injured with a sword, and was captured, she could still be calmed, collected and was smiling. When she fell in the deep pond, and was alone in the deep mountain, she could also look tranquil. But this masked person could cause her to look with great alarm.
Mo Can was absent-minded for a split second, it made the masked person have the opportunity to exploit and pull out a dagger from the waist, then thrusted it towards Mo Can. Mo Can looped his body around to dodge the masked person’s fatal strike, and at the same time, he suddenly revealed his red sword. The dark red was bright, the sword blade was lightly shaking, it looked like it was thirsty of blood.
Murong Shu Qing had seen that sharp red sword’s coldness and cruelty, she was embarrassed because of this woman’s reckless actions. She was definitely not Mo Can’s opponent, but she could not get hurt either! Otherwise the trouble would be so big. In a moment of desperation, Murong Shu Qing said to Yan Yu who was behind her: “Rescue her!”
Murong Shu Qing’s voice just barely left out, Yan Yu already moved quickly and went out, and just intercepted the fatal thrust for the masked person. Cang Su was not here, even though Yan Yu’s martial arts was high, but he, alone was not Mo Can’s opponent either, but Mo Can did not have any intention to make things difficult for him either. After putting away his long sword, Mo Can deeply gazed one glance at Murong Shu Qing, one could not see clearly his mood from his deep and cold eyes. Murong Shu Qing just barely wanted to speak, but his black shadow was gone in a flash, Mo Can’s trace could not even be found anymore.
Murong Shu Qing softly sighed, their meetings were always in a hurry like this. If it was not a sword that came in to her direction, then she was falling into water and injured. She did not know what would be next?!
The masked person was just sitting in the middle of the courtyard, and did not get up, Murong Shu Qing quickly came to her side. Recalling that fragile sound a moment ago, Murong Shu Qing asked with some anxiousness: “Where are you hurt?!”
But the masked person was just softly raising her hand, and she took the cover from her face, her bright and amorous face was revealed. Even though her face was filled with a thin layer of sweat, and her complexion was somewhat pale, but she still recklessly smiled and said: “Except for a broken hand, there is nothing more!”
It was indeed Xi Lie Yue! How could she say it, she was after all a future Monarch of a country, looking at her pitiful figure now, and even somewhat shamelessly sitting on the ground, Murong Shu Qing forced a smile and said: “Did you want to give me a nice surprise?”
Xi Lie Yue knew that she looked pitiful now, but she really did not mind at all, sitting on the ground, and she did not care to stand up either. Her mouth did not forget to say in mocking: “You do not come to see me, I can only explore in woman’s room during the night.” It it were not for the thin layer of sweat that showed she was in pain and that right arm that could not be moved anymore, and with that satisfying appearance, you would think that she was chatting with you on her grandeur bed.
“Not bad, you can still mock, it seems that your injury is not that serious.” Murong Shu Qing laughingly shook her head, that was still a life of a future monarch after all, with this kind of difficulty, her imposing manner could still be threatening. She reached out her hand to support her, and took her to sit on the soft couch in her room. Xi Lie Yue’s hand injury was not life threatening, but if one went back to the Capital to ask for a Physician, once one would return, she was afraid that it would be about 3-4 shichen (6-8 hrs) later. Her bone was displaced, so Yan Yu should be able to treat it.
Murong Shu Qing thought for a moment, she felt powerless, and did not have any alternative but to say to Yan Yu: “Yan Yu, you look at her injury.”
Yan Yu was standing at the side of the door, and he did not answer at all, fixing a bone displacement for him was nothing out of the ordinary, but he originally did not have any plan to treat Xi Lie Yue. Since Murong Shu Qing already said the words, Yan Yu turned his body and walked to the side of Xi Lie Yue, then he examined her injury.
Yan Yu lifted up Xi Lie Yue’s arm to inspect the bone’s misalignment, a sudden pain made her purse her brows, but she did not make any sound either. Waiting until the pain was somewhat calm down, Xi Lie Yue lied down on the soft couch, and asked in a low voice: “You are familiar with that man?”
The pain for this injury, even an ordinary man would not be able to bear it, Xi Lie Yue did not even shout from beginning to the end. This kind of persistent and toughness, one would have to train this since young to become a monarch. Murong Shu Qing lightly sighed, it was really not easy to be a monarch, being a good monarch was even more difficult, and on top of that power and honor, the difficult time that a monarch put, could not be seen or imagined by the ordinary people.
Softly wiping the sweat that was on her forehead, Murong Shu Qing faintly answered: “You can consider it that way.”
Sometimes, she would have this very strange feeling, that he and she seemed to be familiar with each other for a very long time, from the first time that they met for the first time, she had this indescribable believe that he would not kill her. That feeling was very subtle.
Xi Lie Yue suddenly laughed, and asked with interest: “Absolutely arrogant and ruthless, his look is not bad either, I like him.” Especially those eyes, they made her feel like erasing those layer of frozen eyes, looking at him, she felt like she was infected by his fiery and passionate way. On the other hand, Xi Lie Yue was still mocking and looking at Yan Yu up and down, who was examining her injury, she sighed with a clicked on her tongue: “The men who are by your side, are outstanding, no wonder you are so picky! This bodyguard of yours is not too bad either!”
Her voice had not left out yet, Yan Yu exerted his strength to align the bone back in to place, not feeling like looking at Xi Lie Yue anymore, he turned around and went out of the room.
“Hiss____” Completely lacking in her guard against the sharp pain, it made Xi Lie Yue feel in so much pain that she grimaced.
Murong Shu Qing did not have any sympathy for her at all, who made her to be a pervert woman like this, did she think that all of the men did not have any cat claws?! Yan Yu was already very polite since he did not give her a sword (slash her with a sword). Her hand should be alright, so Murong Shu Qing did not want to bother with her anymore. She poured a cup of green tea for her, and was lazily leaning on the side of the low table, she smilingly said: “This is not Hai Yu, you need not be this unrestrained.”
Xi Lie Yue lightly swiveled her arm once, it was basically already good, except for some aching from the outside, it should not have any big problem now. Getting up to come to Murong Shu Qing’s side, and took the tea that was on her (MSQ) hand, she (XLY) drank a mouthful. Xi Lie Yue naturally spoke: “I do not need to pretend when I am in front of you, actually you and I are the same, with regards to the stuffs that we both want to control, we will definitely not compromise. What is different is, that what I want to grasp with my hand is my country, and what you want to control is your own life.”
Murong Shu Qing was slightly startled, and raised her head to look directly at Xi Lie Yue’s confident and understanding eyes, she was the first person who understood what she wanted.
Both of the magnificent women were looking and smiling at each other, sometimes they really did not need to say too much, and only used those very few words, and looking at those expressions, they already clearly understood each other. This was maybe the so-called close friends!
Xi Lie Yue looked at the sky, the moon was already slanting to the west, putting down the cup of tea that was on her hand, she said: “I am leaving.”
“Your hand had just been connected a moment ago, just rest for a while and then you can leave.” Returning to the Capital from here, would still take about 2 shichen (4 hrs) with a quick horse.
Xi Lie Yue did not stop her footsteps, when she arrived in the middle of the courtyard, she just turned around to Murong Shu Qing and helplessly smiled, she said: “If I do not return tonight, you also know what the consequence will be.” Sometimes she also wanted to be willfully taking rash actions, but one needed to undertake one’s own responsibilities.
Yes ah, Xi Lie Yue’s identity was extraordinary and susceptible, one could not tolerate any trace of accident. Showing her understanding by nodding her head, Murong Shu Qing did not urge her to stay anymore.
“I am going now, three days later, I will wait for you at the east outskirts of Ling (pure/virtuous) Shan (mountain).”
Finished speaking, Xi Lie Yue did not turn her head around and departed Jing Shui Ya Xu. Murong Shu Qing forced a smile, she was still insolent like this, and did not even give you any chance to decline her invitation. Sometimes she would think if Xi Lie Yue had Xuanyuan Yi as her general, then would the Emperor die from an excess anger?! Or would the general vomit blood?!
“Yan Yu, arrange two people to escort her back secretly.” Murong Shu Qing stretched her waist, unconsciously, the chrysanthemums that were in front of the front hall, were not bright and colorful anymore, the wind was so cold during this winter time, so they seemed to be withering and helpless. Winter really came! The wind picked up, and the night was also deeper.
No way… so Mo Can is also protecting MSQ in secret. That queen, Xi Lie Yue is even brattier than Huo Zhi Qing. She’s so more reckless. I mean she is worst than HZQ, after all, she pretended to be a prostitute. No woman in the right mind would do that. What’s she doing snooping in MSQ’s room???
Btw, XLY, get your hands off Mo Can as he's mine. 😊😊
