Lol… You all are so funny. When I put “Enjoy (Mo Can) while it lasts” in the last update, I didn’t mean that the author would kill him off or something. I only meant that we should enjoy Mo Can before Xuanyuan Yi shows up again in the future and Mo Can has to take a back seat and hide. And our general will show up again as he’s still one of the MLs. 😃

“I really do have this plan.” A cold male voice earnestly answered.
As it turned out, he actually had a humorous personality in him, Murong Shu Qing shrugged her shoulder and made an invitation posture, she smilingly said: “Please do as you wish.”
Mo Can who was always grim, actually raised the corner of his mouth up lightly, without looking at Murong Shu Qing, he was staring at Bing Po’s eyes, his eyes were filed with praises and sighs. But he had not stepped forward at all, and was still leaning behind the big tree, he lowly sighed and said: “Bing Po and you are a match.”
He said it with a low sound, so Murong Shu Qing thought that she misheard it, were she and Bing Po a match? Were the people not saying that the fine horse should be matched with a hero! She was not a hero, and could barely ride a horse. Feng Qi Xuan smilingly said these words in the past, Bing Po was very pitiful, even if it could not be matched by a hero, it should still be matched by a gorgeous woman at the very least, but following her was just a waste. (The actual word for that gorgeous woman is a woman so beautiful that she can ruin & overturn the country).
Murong Shu Qing smilingly nodded her head and answered: “This was the first time that I heard this statement, very interesting.”
Mo Can did not care about Murong Shu Qing’s self-mocking words, he only moved two steps to the left, so he could block Murong Shu Qing from the direct blowing of the night wind. Standing opposite her, that pair of deep eyes that were always cold, were actually glittering with a rare radiance. That low chanting that could shake one’s heartstrings, lightly echoed at the side of Murong Shu Qing’s ear: “Both of you do not like to be restrained, and are longing for free souls.”
Murong Shu Qing who was always looking at him with a light smile, was actually startled for a moment as if she was met by an electric shock, he knew! He unexpectedly knew! That was the reason why she indulged at Bing Po like this, it was because she wanted to keep that freedom and unruliness that she cared the most. That was also her desire that she longed for her own self, and he actually knew all of these!
The cold wind along with the dead leaves, were spinning and floating willfully under this dimmed moonlight night, even their sounds were flowing together during this quiet night, the sound seemed like it was falling in one’s heart. Murong Shu Qing wanted to say something, but she could not say anything when she opened her mouth.
Suddenly, Mo Can’s body was so closed to her, he embraced her waist and put her into his bosom, both of their figures were entirely disappeared under the shadow of the tree. Even though his sudden’s movement startled Murong Shu Qing, but she knew that he would not do this if there was no reason, so she kept silent and hid herself within the darkness. But Mo Can’s strong heartbeats were vibrating behind her and they made her nervous indescribably.
As expected, a couple of black shadows were approaching the horse shack very quickly, they slowly approached Bing Po. Just when they were nearly entered the horse shack, Bing Po appeared to feel their arrival, so with a long neigh, it rushed out of the horse shack. It stopped in front of the vacant space, and afterwards, its feet ferociously treaded on for several times, with so much power. A pair of its black eyes were staring at the two black dresses men who were in front of Bing Po.
The two people appeared to recover slowly from Bing Po’s vigorous speed, they were met by its imposing manner that could crush them. Looking at it afterwards, they pulled out a long sword that they carried with them. The sound of the sword was being unsheathed, made Murong Shu Qing feel fearful when she heard it. But Bing Po did not take off to escape at all, it was still standing arrogantly, its eyes revealed an undoubtedly contempt.
Murong Shu Qing did not really know whether to laugh or cry, if Bing Po ran away this time, these two people would definitely not be able to chase it. But it clearly planned to meet the enemy head-on, so it would have to confront that sharp swords from those young martial arts people. Murong Shu Qing was still somewhat anxious, she felt a power that came from her waist and made her turn around, but she could not see Mo Can’s expression in the dark. Mo Can tightened up his arms so Murong Shu Qing would be hidden within the darkness even more, he stuck to the side of her ear and muttered: “Do not worry, I am here.”
In the darkness, Murong Shu Qing could only slightly nod, but her gaze actually did not leave the vacant space where Bing Po was.
The two black dresses men finally made some movements, and brandished the swords that were on their hands, and they moved together to stab towards Bing Po, so Murong Shu Qing’s heart went up to her throat. She could only see that Bing Po retreated several steps, it made a leap, it was actually a very high leap to sweep past those two people’s heads. Afterwards, Bing Po’s legs ferociously treaded and kicked one of the person’s back. The strength of the hit made the person vomit blood on the spot. They clearly did not anticipate that Bing Po was brave and fierce like this, and the people who were in the tavern already paid attention to the activity within the horse shack, so the two people saw that the situation was unfavorable to them and they departed in a hurry.
After they departed, Bing Po just leisurely went back to the horse shack, it was simply and continuously treading on its front hooves gently to show its excitement and agitation.
Murong Shu Qing slightly pursed her eyebrows, looking at how Bing Po was dealing with that many swords a moment ago, could it be that Bing Po’s impetuous character was because it frequently ran into this kind of situation? Unconsciously, she mumbled a sound: “What were they doing?”
Mo Can had already let go of Murong Shu Qing’s hand, and looking that she had a distressed appearance, he could not help but lowly laughed and answered: “They were also fancy your horse.”
Murong Shu Qing slowly shook her head, her eyes were throbbing with some mocking sparks, and she smilingly said: “I thought that they should consciously fancy me a little. So ____” Moving her gaze to Mo Can, Murong Shu Qing softly coughed, and pretended to smile seriously and say: “You are relatively tougher, take care of yourselves.” Finished speaking, she relaxingly turned around and entered the horse stable.
Mo Can lightly raised his eyebrows, with a light smile, he looked askance at her, whose life was this after all! She actually appeared to be so idle.
It was rare that the morning light during the winter day was glittering like this, the faint gold color was emitting a soft heat, it made people want to feel the warm. Murong Shu Qing was breathing a mouthful of air in front of the window sill, it was a good weather early in the morning, and made her mood was also quite relax and bright.
Zi Yuan was carrying a basin and when she just entered the room, she saw Murong Shu Qing who was watching outside the window with a smile on her face. Taking the towel that was on her hand and passed it on to her, she smilingly greeted: “Miss, good morning.”
Usually, Lu Yi was always doing these matters, so when she suddenly saw Zi Yuan, she was somewhat not used to it. Taking the towel, Murong Shu Qing also smiled and nodded her head to her. After she changed her clothing, and almost done taking care on her own, she still had not seen Lu Yi, so Murong Shu Qing asked with a little strange feeling: “En, where is Lu Yi?”
Zi Yuan was tidying up the bed and couch, she turned around and softly answered: “She seems to feel somewhat uncomfortable, I let her rest.”
“Not feeling well?" She was afraid that the weather was cold these past few days, she was shaking for the whole journey so her body was suffering from it, it was really tough on her.
Thinking of the matter about yesterday evening, Murong Shu Qing asked: “Oh right, why did Bing Po suddenly run away!” She knew that Bing Po’s legs were very quick, but it was really impossible for it to run from Huadu to the Capital for only one night. This explained that Bing Po had already left the Murong’s family at least one day before.
Zi Yuan shook her head, and did not understand it either so she answered: “I am not clear either, Bing Po is never tied up, when you told Feng Manager to bring it along, it was already missing, we did not know when it went out.”
Murong Shu Qing was slightly pondering for a moment, she did not ask any longer, and nodded to say: “En, I understand, let’s go and see how Lu Yi is doing.”
Both of them entered Lu Yi’s room, and saw that she already stood up, and was just about to tidy up her own carry-on clothing. Murong Shu Qing looked at her, except that she looked somewhat tired from the outside, everything was not bad.
Stepping inside the room, Zi Yuan walked over and caress Lu Yi’s forehead, and she muttered with a somewhat disapproving tone: “Lu Yi, why are you up.”
Lu Yu softly shook her head, and raised a somewhat far-fetching smile, she answered: “Miss, Zi Yuan jiejie, I am alright, just a little headache, I probably catch a cold.”
How could a body be thought as a trifling matter, so Murong Shu Qing looked that she was trying to smile with great difficulty, and she said grudgingly: “Look for a physician to examine her.”
Lu Yi promptly walked to Murong Shu Qing’s front, she shook her head while she pledged and said: “No need, are we not in a hurry? I am really alright, I can lie down once we are in the carriage, then I will be fine. Really.” She came to take care of Miss, and could not be a burden to her.
Murong Shu Qing answered: “Alright, Zi Yuan, tidy up the stuffs properly, we will look for a physician once we arrive in a town.” There would not be any good physician within this mountain area, they have to wait until they reach a town to find one.”
“Miss ~~” Lu Yi still wanted to say something, but Murong Shu Qing interrupted with a somewhat solemn voice: “If you disagree, then we will wait until you are cured from your illness before we will go.”
Knowing her persistence, Lu Yi did not dare to reply anymore.
Xi (west) Feng Zhen (a city within the Inner Mongolia) was the biggest city within several hundred miles radius, relatively speaking, it was quite flourishing, the distribution of the trades and commerces were common seen. There was a simple, black and wide carriage that stopped in front of the biggest medicine hall, it was not luxurious but the style was actually rarely seen.
Zi Yuan was anxiously pulling an older physician, and anxiously said: “Physician, please take a look, she is sick for many days, she has not recovered even after eating some medicine.”
Murong Shu Qing was standing at the side of the door, her heart was also very anxious, Lu Yi had been seeing many physicians during the journey, but she was not better, and even more and more tired as if she did not want to wake up from her sleep.
After the old physician held Lu Yi’s wrist for a while, his face showed an understanding, while he was kneading his gray beard, he confidently smiled and said: “The qi (life force) and blood are too empty, and she is also infected by wind chill, but do not be anxious, this old person will give her two kind of prescriptions for the medicine. Go back and rest properly, also take the medicines to get rid of the illness.”
“Yes ah, just eat those two medicines and she can meet the Maker (die).” When the old physician was writing the prescription, there was a voice that was not light nor heavy from outside the door, the voice was rather arrogant and with a sneering laughter.
The young servant boy who was near the door, came over with his quickest response to arrive at the door and rejectingly said: “Where did this smelly beggar come from, get lost quickly.”
Murong Shu Qing moved one step and saw a little more than 40 years old man who was leaning by the side of the medicine hall's door, who was wearing a withered clothing, his blue changpao made him look like a beggar.
The man gently smiled and got up, he casted one glance at everybody who was inside the medicine hall, and left confidently and freely. Yes, even though his whole body looked like he was in poverty-stricken, but he emitted a free and charm’s feeling, so Murong Shu Qing went a couple of steps to go out of the door, and called out: “Mister, please stay.”
Her clear and moist voice urged him to stop his pace, the man slowly turned around, and looked one glance at Murong Shu Qing, he did not say anything, but was only looking at her all along.
After Murong Shu Qing gave a courtesy to him, she said directly: “Please give advice!”
The man was still staring at Murong Shu Qing with a burst of violent look, and then he faintly threw out this sentence: “She was poisoned.”
Huh??? I didn’t think there would be a poisoning plot in this novel. Who poisoned Lu Yi? And how did the person poison her? Another mystery plot is thickening…
Aiya, Mo Can ah, Mo Can, you're killing me with your charms in this chapter. 😍😍😍
