Chapter 98

First Battle

“Miss, why are you getting up?” Lu Yi promptly put down the new tea that she just steep properly, and nervously supported Murong Shu Qing who holding on to the bed curtain to support herself. This wound was just a little better, and Miss was already restless, the Military doctor said that if the wound was split opened again, it would leave a very ugly scar, unfortunately, Miss was unconcerned about it.

Murong Shu Qing’s one hand was holding on to the bed curtain to support herself, while her other hand was supported by Lu Yi to stand up properly, she helplessly and smilingly said: “I have already been lying in bed for five days, the wound is a lot better, let me walk a little, if I continue lying down again, my bones will quickly stiffened.” She had never lied down in bed for a long time before, and Lu Yi really looked like a housewife more and more.

Lu Yi was thinking, then she looked at Murong Shu Qing again, whose vitality seemed to be a lot better today, so she nodded her head: “Then alright, just walk around the inner room.”

Inner room?? Murong Shu Qing did not show any temperament and only gave her a supercilious look, how could one walk around in this tiny tent?! Lightly pulling Lu Yi’s sleeve, Murong Shu Qing smilingly whispered: “Today’s sunshine is very good, walking in front of the tent will be good?”

“But ~ ” How could Miss learn about Miss Tang’s bad habits, showing her expectation face and miserable appearance, how could she reject her! Lu Yi was just about to struggle whether or not to agree with Murong Shu Qing’s request, suddenly, a long and loud horn sounded, that urgent horn sound that sounded like a loud bell, scared the two people. Lu Yi asked with a somewhat lingering fears: “What sound is that?”

“The army horn.” Murong Shu Qing faintly muttered. Letting go of Lu Yi’s hand, she walked to the front of the window and lightly lifted the heavy curtain up. She could only see that the soldiers outside were running orderly, it seemed that with the sound of the horn this time, Cang Yue was already somewhat impatient.

Lu Yi was also very curious, she walked to the side of the door and said: “What has happened? I will go and take a look.”

Murong Shu Qing put the window curtain down, and said to Lu Yi who wanted to go outside the tent: “Lu Yi, come back.” This was an army camp, and was not their family’s backyard, it was not a place where she could go freely. Moreover, the outside was not safe, how could she let Lu Yi go out and take any risk.

Just barely going out, she could see the normally solemn and tranquil big camp, all of the officers and soldiers were sternly waiting in front of the square together, nobody was saying anything. One could only see the constant dust that was flying up and their faces had solemn expressions, it made her feel their nervousness and stress. Hearing Murong Shu Qing’s voice, Lu Yi hurriedly retreated back.

Lu Yi was still staring stupidly, and standing by the side of the door, Murong Shu Qing laughingly shook her head, and sat down on the bed, and she softly called: “Someone comes.”

Very quickly, a shadow went in a flash from the outside tent, he was wearing a gray cotton clothing, with a dark complexion. He seemed to be extremely ordinary, and was similar as every servant in one’s family, and he cupped his fists to salute: “Master.” Respectfully and slightly lowered his head, he waited for Murong Shu Qing’s command.

His appearance made Murong Shu Qing slightly hook up the corner of her mouth, and carefully sized him up for a while. He had a very ordinary appearance, very ordinary clothing, very ordinary manner, but she was satisfied that Yan Yu arranged him to be her secret bodyguard. He did not wear a black clothing to show his mysterious personality, did not show an expressionless and icily arrogant present, and did not show his oppressed personality to declare his power and ability. He was neither servile nor overbearing, not warm nor fiery, reserved and steady, she liked him. Murong Shu Qing withdrew her gaze that was closely examining him, and she smilingly said: “Go look to see what is going on!”

The man answered: “Yes.” Similar to when he came, he rapidly came out of the tent.

Lu Yi had already returned to Murong Shu Qing’s side, and supporting her, she said: “Miss, I will help you to walk inside the tent, you can not walk outside now.”

Murong Shu Qing lightly shook her head and said: “No need, accompany me to drink a cup of tea.” She did not want to walk inside this small tent.

“Oh.” Lu Yi brought the tea set, both of them were sitting in front of the low table, and drinking tea. Lu Yi did not say anything again, but she was thinking that Miss was surely thinking about Xuanyuan Gongzi and the matter about the army now, so it was good if she just drank the tea.

Cang Yue’s challenge this time was the first offensive attack that You Xiao originated to Xuanyuan Yi, so he needed to gain an upper hand. After all, Xuanyuan Yi’s reputation was very prominent among the various countries. Battling with Dong Yu, Cang Yue’s soldiers must be feeling very afraid in their hearts, if they could have a small victory this time, then it would give them some faiths to You Xiao, and could also shock Dong Yu’s prestige. So he needed this victory more in this battle.

These past few days, Xuanyuan Yi came back to have meals with her after sundown, he did not talk a lot either, it was clear that he had a heavy load in his heart. Once they finished eating, he would let her rest early, and then just left. And Pei Che, after that day, he had not gone to her tent anymore. It seemed that they still could not break the battle arrays from last time. Then, this battle today ___ she was afraid that it would point to a disaster.

Murong Shu Qing was lightly stroking the teacup, looking at the pale yellow tea color, several of the tea leaves were already floating and blooming, along with her slight shaking, the tea leaves were moving up and down, floating and spinning inside the cup. It looked as if there was an external force that caused it to float and spin, but this was not something that they wanted to have the water to move them freely!

“Master.” After about 2 hours, a respectful voice from a man pulled back Murong Shu Qing’s mind, closing a book, Murong Shu Qing sat up from the couch. Without in a hurry nor slow tone, she said it without hesitation: “Say it.”

“Cang Yue came to challenge first, Dong Yu met them head-on, both of the vanguard armies were fighting, not knowing the actual fighting place, but after the fight moved to the west side of the Lin Shan mountain, there was no sound of fighting anymore. Nobody could hear the sound of the fight nor one could see if anybody was withdrawing or coming, it was absolutely strange. After General Xuanyuan Yi ordered to withdraw, the second vanguard armies went to check it up, but they still could not see any movement, and had not retreated back.” The man’s voice was not loud, and he explained it briefly and to the point.

According to her understanding towards Xuanyuan Yi, going in to this battle without any assurance like this, and blindly sacrificing the battle, he should not continue to fight at all. Thinking for a moment, Murong Shu Qing continued to ask: “Then, do you know whether or not the army has already come back to the camp?”

“Except for the three thousand officers and soldiers who are guarding the outside of the upper Lin Shan mountain area, the other people have already returned.”

It seemed like wanting to seal his words, there were the sounds of the horses’ hooves that came through from a distant until they were near, the horses’ hooves were firm, and the sounds were orderly so it should be the troops who were withdrawing. Nodding her head, Murong Shu Qing softly said: “I understood, you can withdraw.”

“Yes.” The man was just about to turn around and leave the tent, when Murong Shu Qing suddenly asked: “Oh right, what is your name?”

The man was clearly startled, he did not think that Murong Shu Qing would ask his name, but very quickly, he tranquilly answered: “Fan Feng.”

Fan Feng! She would remember it. Murong Shu Qing gently nodded her head, so the man came out of the tent.

Sian’s notes:

I have questions for the readers. It doesn’t relate to this novel, but I check novel updates every so often just to see what kind of novels are being updated there, and find that there are many (I mean MANY) novels that have over 2,000 ; 3,000 or even 4,000 chapters. WHAT???!!! I usually run far away when I see that many chapters in a novel but am kind of curious if any of you have read those type of novels. Is there any good novel that needs to have over 2,000 chapters? How does the author even think of the plots when he/she writes these type of novels? I assume that that are tons of plots repetitions in those novels. I mean, seriously how can one person think of so many different plots in these novels??!! I’m currently reading Doomed To Be Cannon Fodder that has almost 300 chapters in it. This novel has a very high rating too (4.7 out of 5, I think), so I check it out. It’s so boring that I only skim the majority of the chapters. Hahaha… I have my own “OCD” personality that I will not drop a novel as long as I can read it for more than 20-30 chapters. DTBCF had an interesting plot at the beginning but then it started to be repetitive in no time & this novel only has 297 chapters total. Not even close to 2,000 chapters. 😂😂😂 Anyway, that’s my Friday’s nothing to do question & have a great weekend you all!!
