On A Long Journey
“Qing-er, why do you still want to go to Lin Feng Guan border at this time, that place is where the battle is, you really hate to part with Xuanyuan Yi this much.”
First thing in the morning, Murong Shu Qing barely explained her intention to Qi Rui, but Qi Rui just bursted this ‘heartbroken’ scolding at her. This made her unable to laugh or cry, it seemed that Qi Rui did not believe that she and Xuanyuan Yi had really cancelled their wedding agreement. Even though she was going to go directly to Xuanyuan Yi this time, but it was not because she did not want to part with him! Murong Shu Qing shook her head, lightly smiled and said: “It is not like that, I have a reason to go there.”
But no matter what kind of reason that she had, how could Qi Rui let his only younger sister to go to a dangerous place like that. Qi Rui tightly held Murong Shu Qing’s hand, solemnly and seriously said: “I do not agree. You are a woman, going to a war-torn place, do you know how much dangerous that place is? It is not that easy to go out to that place, moreover, Maternal grandfather will not agree either.”
The warmth and strength of his hand made Murong Shu Qing’s heart float with sweet ripples, her close relative’s love still made her heart feel the softest. But she was not that resentful 20 years old anymore, the wealthy family Miss who stayed at home. Murong Shu Qing returned to hold Qi Rui’s hand, she explained with a soft voice: “Elder brother, I know what I want to do on my own, regarding maternal grandfather, I had met him yesterday, and the Elder already agreed to it.”
Maternal grandfather agreed? Qi Rui was unbelievably looking at Murong Shu Qing whose face was filled with her light smile, a kind of unusual feeling made him feel somewhat uneasy. Could it be that the reason why Qing-er was going to Lin Feng Guan border this time, was really not as simple as a young woman’s feeling? Qi Rui anxiously asked: “Qing-er, tell elder brother what happened?”
It seemed that Xuan Tian Cheng still kept the matter about the burnt army provisions confidential. This was also good, the less people knew that she had already supplied the provisions to the army, the less hindrance to transport them, relatively speaking, she was also more secured.
Murong Shu Qing shook her head, and still with her regular tranquil smiled, she said: “Nothing, elder brother can be at ease.”
The morning ray was projecting her gentle and tranquil smile, that could totally make people unconsciously to have confidence in her. Looking one glance at the people behind her, Lu Yi and that black dress man who always had a grim appearance and high martial art, his Qing-er had already trusted and taken care of by other people. With some difficulties, but also feeling extremely gratified to let go of her hand, was this a realization that his family’s young woman was beginning to grow up? Qi Rui softly sighed, and finally nodded his head, he said: “Forget it, since you are not willing to say it, then I will not ask anymore, you should be careful during the journey.”
“Alright.” Murong Shu Qing just barely finished her words, there was a hurried sound of a horse’s hooves from a distant place. The dust was flying upward, a black lightning was flying quickly, with its long neigh sound, and it already arrived in front of Murong Shu Qing.
“Bing Po!?” Murong Shu Qing cried out in surprise, she just could not believe looking at Bing Po, that fine horse that was excitingly treading its front hooves. She just made Yan Yu to inform Feng Yi yesterday afternoon to bring Bing Po, how could she able to see it today!!
Bing Po’s appearance also made Yan Yu feel startled, was its heart feeling a tacit understanding at an earlier time that he already ran away to come here, or were its feet really running so fast?! However, the person who let out an amazement sound was not them, but it was Qi Rui whose eyes were shining with excitement.
“Good horse!” That black as soft satin hair was smoothly bright, its well-built and tall figure, with arrogant and imposing manner, it was really a rare and amazing horse. Qi Rui was just about to step forward to look at it carefully, who would have thought that it would intimately embrace Murong Shu Qing. It seemed that the docile horse could feel that Qi Rui was approaching, so it suddenly lifted its front hooves up high, and with strength, it kicked the ground with so much power to scatter the dust up. Its resounding neighing sound was also making people who wanted to approach it, not to act blindly without thinking.
Murong Shu Qing was hugging Bing Po’s neck promptly, appeasing and lightly stroking its mane, for a good while, then Bing Po was just slowly calm down. Murong Shu Qing was somewhat flabbergasted, even though Bing Po was always untamed, but it would never be impetuous like this. What was wrong with it?
Quietly looking closely at it, apart from its agitation and restlessness, it did not seem that there was any injury at all. Bing Po still looked the same as before when he was using its nose to strike the hallow of her palm, could it be that she had misconception a moment ago?!
Even though Qi Rui really admired this rarely seen and good horse, but looking at its impetuousness like that, and in order to be safe, he still pulled Jing shui to go back for several steps.
Murong Shu Qing’s whole attention was still put on Bing Po’s body, suddenly she felt that Yan Yu bursted like a wind and flew out, he stood in front of her, the condensation of the cold air to attack someone was earth-shattering. Curiously raising her head, she walked pass Yan Yu’s broad shoulder, and directly faced a pair of ice-cold eyes, but with a glitter of excitement and flame.
“Mo Can?” Murong Shu Qing lightly knitted her elegant eyebrows, this was the first time that she saw those pair of eyes that were like rare snow covered with ice, caught another color, something that could actually make him look so different was ___ Bing Po.
Softly smiling and shaking her head, who said that even a hero could pass the charmed of a beautiful woman, according to what she saw, it was a hero who was not able to pass the charmed of a fine horse. Up to this day, there should not be any woman who could make Xuanyuan Yi flare up, made Huo Zi Qi sigh and praise, made Mo Can feel excited, but Bing Po accomplished those easily. Gently patting Bing Po’s head, it seemed that it had senses, raising its impressive neck, Bing Po was calmly looking one glance at Mo Can. But it did not have any concern and just continued to seek for a familiar scent on Murong Shu Qing’s body.
Mo Can’s approach made Yan Yu feel somewhat nervous, he would not forget the scene when that red blood sharp blade was on Murong Shu Qing’s neck, he would also not let that act to re-occur again.
Qi Rui was also startled and sighing at this black dress man who suddenly appeared, he unexpectedly did not sense this person at all, what kind of entanglement did this person have with Qing-er?!
Mo Can did not pay any attention to Yan Yu whose body was emitting an attack power, he just walked to Murong Shu Qing’s side, he asked with a cold and muffled voice: “Are you determined to go to Lin Feng Guan border?”
Murong Shu Qing casually nodded her head, and answered: “Yes.”
She was waiting for Mo Can’s next words, but after waiting for a while, she did not hear a muffled sound of a man’s voice echoing anymore. So Murong Shu Qing raised her head, she only saw that Mo Can was not in front of her anymore, but just turned around and agilely got on a brown horse. Lightly taking the reins, the horse slowly walked forward and stopped a few meter where Murong Shu Qing’s carriage was standing.
His strange movement made Murong Shu Qing lowly ask: “What is this?”
“I have said that I will not let you die.” With his dark robe, and a long red blood sword on his back, one could not see his facial expression, but that icily arrogant and muffled voice was really shocked Murong Shu Qing so she remained silent for a very long time.
The horses’ hooves di da sounds were echoing on the rock pavement, they made a sharp and clear sound, Murong Shu Qing was sitting inside the carriage, and somewhat absent-mindedly looking outside the window. There was no spring vitality, no summer luxuriant, no autumn harvest, there was only a winter that appeared to have only endless desolation. On the contrary, Murong Shu Qing was actually infatuated with this spiritual nature, the mystery of the regeneration. Lightly tapping the curtain, and looking towards the road that they just passed by, she could see that black figure who was following the carriage. It had been several days, he was still silently following to guard her all along, Mo Can, what was he thinking after all?
When she was letting her imagination run wild, it was already sunset, Yan Yu looked for a descent tavern. This was already the best tavern during their two days travel, so they decided to stay and rest at this tavern tonight.
Getting off the carriage, Murong Shu Qing was surprise to see a light purple figure who was in front of the tavern. She was not sure so she gently called: “Zi Yuan?”
Zi Yuan who had been anxiously waiting at the door, looked at Murong Shu Qing, and immediately welcomed her up.
Lu Yi who had not been seeing Zi Yuan for quiet a while, happily pulled Zi Yuan’s hand, and excitingly asked: “Zi Yuan jiejie, how come you are here?”
Zi Yuan lightly smiled back and held Lu Yi’s hand afterwards, and she gave courtesy to Murong Shu Qing, smilingly explained: “Miss, Manager Feng said that the matter that you arranged for him to do, had been done, the first batch of foodstuffs was already transported to the army camp, afterwards, the other batches would be delivered one by one. Going to Lin Feng Guan border this time is extremely dangerous, Zi Yuan hopes to be able to help Miss.”
It had been the fourth day, as long as the first batch of foodstuffs had already been delivered without mishap, Murong Shu Qing could relax a little. Looking at Zi Yuan’s travel weary face that was in front of her, she helplessly smiled and asked: “Is the family okay?”
Zi Yuan promptly nodded her head and answered: “Very good, Hong Xiu are taking care of Young Master and Young Miss.”
Looking that she was rather anxious, Murong Shu Qing forced a smile and did not know what to say anymore. She probably knew that she would get scold earlier, but she still came, she really spoiled these girls. One Lu Yi was not enough, there was another Zi Yuan now, originally she was the person who listened to her the most, it seemed that she was not the most obedient anymore now. Lightly sighing, Murong Shu Qing waved her hand and said: “Alright, since you are already here, just stay.”
Zi Yuan could finally put down her anxiousness in her heart, she pulled Lu Yi delightedly, and answered with a sweet voice: “Thank you, Miss.”
Too lazy to pay attention to the smiles from those two happy girls, Murong Shu Qing smilingly returned to the room.
After dinner, Murong Shu Qing asked Lu Yi and Zi Yuan to rest, and she was casually browsing the book that she brought over. She normally loved reading the book so much, but today, she did not know why she did not have any interest. So finally putting down the book, Murong Shu Qing went out of the room, and walked to the horse stable. When looking at Bing Po this time, she always felt that there was something wrong with it, and felt that she could not let go of it.
Under the moonlight, this small horse shack was plainly visible, some of the horses were occupied and bowing their heads to eat the grass. Only Bing Po that was looking up at the moon, and gently stamping its front feet, there was no saddle on its body, no reins nor chain, and it was not tied up either, as if it could rush and run freely at any time, and it attracted people’s interests even more.
By the side of the horse shack, there were only dried up branches of a tall tree, Murong Shu Qing stepped on the ground that was filled with dead leaves, and just strolled to go. But she unexpectedly encountered a dark shadow by the side of a tree.
Staring to look at the shadow, Murong Shu Qing smilingly mocked and said: “Are you planning to steal my horse?”
It's so cool to have a horse like Bing Po that can feel murderous aura that Mo Can always carries on his body. Bing Po could actually feel it first than Yan Yu when Mo Can was approaching MSQ.
Squeelllll for Mo Can's shipper. This is a start of a long journey for MSQ & Mo Can's ship. 😍😍😍 Enjoy it while it lasts!
