Autumn breeze cold, autumn leaves falls, a drizzle of rain flutters as winter arrives.
A figure of brilliant red in this silvery white world is particularly striking, Li Fei Yan’s character is like her favourite clothing colour, hot blooded and unrestrained.
Her horse stops below a monastery, and just then someone holding an umbrella, walks out from the mountain gate. In this unexpected timing, both people meet eyes.
Li Fei Yan’s eyes rounds, exclaiming, “Qu Qing Yin!”
Coming out from the monastery is indeed the one who had disappeared from Jiang Hu for a long time now, Ling Long Dao Qu Qing Yin. Just seeing her in a body of purple clothing, body covered in a white fur cloak, her hair done up sophisticatedly, with a dignified posture, no matter how you look at it, she is but a refined lady who treads through the snow, admiring the plum blossoms.
Qu Qing Yin nods her head at her, “Lady Li.”
Seeing her, she had only planned to just walk past, but Li Fei Yan turns her body around, shouting, “Don’t you know he is looking for you?”
“I know.” Her voice, soft and light, like a snowflake falling from the skies.
Li Fei Yan could not believe it and shouts even louder, “If you know he is looking for you, how could still be hiding away with your mind at peace.”
“I am not hiding from him.” She is only waiting for him to find his way here.
“If you are not hiding from him, how could he have not been able to find you?” Li Fei Yan does not believe a single word she had said.
“The meeting between people, sometimes depends on their fate.” This is also how she had answered her cousin Emperor. The time agreement is one year, within a year she is not allowed to take it upon herself to go find Liu Feng.
Li Fei Yan sees that she has started to walk again, and immediately pulls her horse along as she follows after her.
Qu Qing Yin stops in her track, lifting her head to look at the girl in red sat on top of the horse, “Why are you following me?”
Li Fei Yin twitches her eyebrows, “Lady I, just likes to, can’t I?”
“But I do not like people following me.”
“That is your problem.”
Qu Qing Yin bursts out laughing, “That’s true.”
Li Fei Yan leaps off her horse, pulling the reins, she walks the road side by side with her as snowflakes delicately descends.
“Are you living here?”
“These past few months, you have always been here?”
“Actually, right now I still really hate you.” Li Fei Yan’s expression looks complicated.
Qu Qing Yin lightly laughs, but says nothing.
She speaks as she walks: “I have liked Liu Feng for so long, but in the end he only ever speaks bluntly to me, but you actually managed to stand beside him so casually, just seeing it made me feel uncomfortable.”
Qu Qing Yin continues to simply, saying nothing.
“They all say that you must have used some underhanded tricks on Liu Feng, to have made him so dead set on you only.”
Li Fei Yan speaks in a seeking truth from facts manner: “Although I do not like you, and also know you are not that nice of a person, but you really do not look like a demoness.”
“You can pick out a demoness from looks?”
“Of course, those that are evil and walks an askew path all have an evil air around them, but you don’t.” Not only do you not have it, you also have an air filled with righteousness around you. Besides, Ling Long Dao is a blade of justice that eliminates evil.
“Did you know, that the highest level of being a bad person is by being able to make good people think they are good.”
Li Fei Yan asks back: “Are you that sort of person?”
Qu Qing Yin laughs, “That’s a good question, although I cannot be considered a good person, but it seems that I have not gone to such extent of being bad.”
Qu Qing Yin shakes her head as she laughs, she has underestimated this Li family manor’s missy. She looks as though she has a reckless temper and is unreasonable, but also has this firm and honest side to her. Just that she does not mask her words, speaking so bluntly, making it easy to offend others.
Looks like, Li Fei Yan has not caused any less trouble with this mouth of hers. “You don’t have to follow me, I won’t be leaving this place.”
Li Fei Yan’s face was rendered surprised, “You……”
Qu Qing Yin continues to speak, “You want to let him find me, don’t you?”
She quickly turns her face, sounding a ‘heng’, “As if I’d do that, if he cannot find you then it is even better.”
Qu Qing Yin laughs but remains silent.
Li Fei Yan turns her head to see the smile on her face, feeling a little annoyed, she loudly says: “I really wouldn’t!”
“I got it.”
Li Fei Yan rapidly jumps onto her horse. From the horse, she immediately condescends: “I said I wouldn’t so I wouldn’t, be it you want to leave or not.” And then strikes the horse with her whip, leaving just like that.
Seeing the figure clad in red disappear into the snow scene, Qu Qing Yin could not help but to burst out in laughter, this missy Li sure is an interesting person.
Raising her head to look at the lightly descending snow, she lets out a sigh, do they not all say that gentleman Xiao Yao has many connections around the world? To have been searching for a few months and still not have found her, she really has slightly overestimated him.
Forget it, not going to think about it.
This snowfall has lasted a few days, still not showing any signs of stopping, walking this silvery white world, makes one feel lonely and bleak.
Qu Qing Yin shifts the umbrella, looking up at the overcast skies, snow overflowing from the heavens falls down. She laughs as she spins a few circles amongst this snowy ground. Light, shallow but clear laughter rings throughout the place, here, there is not a single soul around, such scenery also appears open and clear.
A purple figure amongst the white, like a child playing in the snow, a refreshingly bright smile lighting her face.
This is the scene Liu Feng is seeing.
Looking for so long, searching for so long, that person suddenly appears in front of him like this, causing him to be taken by surprise, a pleasant surprise that overwhelms him.
Sensing something, Qu Qing Yin, follows her senses and looks over, suddenly freezing on the spot.
Liu Feng makes one flying leap and lands by her side, hands cradling her face, sighing as he says: “Haven’t seen you for so long, yet you don’t even miss me?”
“You’ve seen missy Li?”
He was clearly stunned for a moment, “Li Fei Yan? She came here?”
Qu Qing Yin laughs, “Not so long ago I just happened to come across missy Li. She left in agitation, I thought you had already ran into her.”
“You thought she told me your whereabouts?”
Qu Qing Yin nods.
“Of course not, but looks like we are indeed fated.” Liu Feng pulls her into his arms, “Finding you really isn’t an easy task.”
Liu Feng pinches at her cheeks, his tone carrying a hint of jealousy as he speaks: “That cousin of yours, really is one cloud that can hide the sun.”
Qu Qing Yin buries her head into his chest, “This agreement lasts only a year, if a year later you still haven’t found me, then I shall go find you, finding you, this gentleman Xiao Yao who loves meddling into others’ matters would be much easier.”
“I always feel that this is not something to boast about.”
“It never was to begin with.” She answers like it is but a matter of fact.
He was speechless.
“Let’s go, unless you really want to stay here in the snow with me?”
Liu Feng laughs out loud, extending his hand and picks her up, “Since you want to be in a warm place.” Her being in his arms really feels so great.
Qu Qing Yin’s arms wraps around his neck, playfully asking: “Where?”
The bed on a cold winter’s day is indeed the warmest place to be in, especially after a man and woman had passionately warmed it up.
Qu Qing Yin’s long loose hair splays out on the pillow, the hand clutching the pillow was still slightly trembling, Liu Feng presses his hot body against her back.
“Qing Yin” He gently whispers.
“En.” She replies with pleasant laziness.
“Are you willing to marry me now?” He whispers into her ear.
Qu Qing Yin quietly laughs, “What do you think?”
He turns her body over, lowering his head to kiss her facial features.
Qu Qing Yin’s hand lightly grazes at his waist, her expression looking seductive and erotic, making his just quelled desires to awaken again.
“Spring night bitterly short, the day rises high, since then, the noble ruler no longer attends morning assemblies.” He could not help but to sigh.
Qu Qing Yin’s slender neck slightly tilts back, her apricot-like seemingly closed, and a light moan of ecstasy escapes from her mouth.
Facing such a seductive lover, looks like it will be difficult to maintain control over Liu junior during this lifetime. Liu Feng penetrates her like a ferocious tiger, possessing all of her sweetness.
A gentle voice lightly sings, screaming out in excitement. The joys of fishes being water can be felt by the men and women of this world in such small bed, between the sleeping mat and covers, where they passionately sing out their high notes.
The clear skies of early morning has long sunk in, just that the light reflection from the snow makes people produce this illusion that it is still early. They maintain the man on top, woman on bottom, intercourse position, prolonging their time lying together.
He is reluctant to leave her body, she is greedily clinging to his warmth, “Why did you not wait for me at your hometown?”
“Cousin wouldn’t allow it.”
“Really cannot even slip out the slightest bit of news to me?”
“They say if fated, you can find them from a thousand of li away, I only wanted to see whether we are fated or not.”
“Is that true?”
“It’s false.” She hugs his waist, chuckling, “Taking up my body, where else can I run off to?”
Liu Feng lets out a low laugh from his chest, “So, I cannot regret it, is that right?”
“How could I be willing to regret it?” Both pairs of eyes staring into one another, deep feelings of affection and tenderness circulating from their eyes. He stares into her eyes, seriously and sincerely says: “Is it good to come home with me then?”
“I will still continue to walk the Jiang Hu.”
Qu Qing Yin hooks onto his neck, kissing him on the lips, “As long as you remember to come home nice and clean, then it is fine.”
Liu Feng raises his eyebrows, teasing her: “I smell something sour.”
Qu Qing Yin also raises her brows, “You sure it is not the thick smell of blood?”
He hugs her and rolls over, changing their position to woman on top, man on bottom, his hands massaging her waist, “Looks like, I married a dominant wife.”
She narrows her eyes, “Is that so?”
Liu Feng laughs out loud, “This dominant wife that I myself have willingly chased after.”
“You’re really going to retire from the Jiang Hu?”
Speaking of this, Qu Qing Yin could not help but sigh, “A place with people will be a place of the Jiang Hu, I say I’m retiring from the Jiang Hu, but just how many people can actually retire from it?”
Liu Feng clasps his arm around her, also following on with a sigh.
“I am no longer young, I should at least peacefully stay at home and give birth to a few children. If not, another few years later, I’m afraid I wouldn’t even have the strength to do so.”
He could not help but laugh, “Lady wife is extremely correct, we shall work harder to give birth to a couple more, so that once we are old, we will not feel lonely.”
“We will give birth to one each year, how’s that?” He self-servingly says.
“You treating me as the mother pig?”
“Even if you are mother pig, I will still love you. Just go ahead and give birth.”
“Giving birth or not is not just something women can say and do.”
Liu Feng felt that his own dignity as a man was being challenged, turning his entire body over, having her pressed down under him.
“Ah!” Qu Qing Yin because of his sudden reverse of position, utters a light cry.
“Tonight, don’t you even think of sleeping.”
Qu Qing Yin pushes him, “I don’t want to, sweating so much, I need to wash up.”
“Really don’t want to?”
Qu Qing Yin stares at him, “Really.”
“That’s true, we still have many days to come.” He said it so meaningfully.
She grandly does not hold back and reaches up to his waist, shaking his mahua (Chinese fried dough twist), “What are you thinking about all day?”
“Branching out, to raise you into mother pig, that way no one will steal you from me.” He says it in all seriousness.
“Then why don’t you feed yourself into a male pig, not letting other women cling onto you?”
Liu Feng considers her words, “This truly isn’t a bad idea, then from now on, I will have to bother lady wife to feed me well. I’d say up to one or two hundred jin, would just about be alright.”
Qu Qing Yin whacks him, “Then wouldn’t I be at even more discomfort, being weighed down by you?”
“Weren’t women born to be weighed down by men anyways? Was there any who were weighed down to death?”
“Get lost.” Qu Qing Yin was angry
He loudly laughs, turning his body to get off the bed. Pulling down his clothes from the top of the screen and putting them on, he looks back to say: “I’ll go tell someone to prepare some hot water. Once you’re done washing, sleep after you’ve eaten your fill.”
The place that they are in right now is an independent courtyard within an inn. Qu Qing Yin had already paid up a year’s worth of residency.
Liu Feng opens the door and exits. At the porch he breaths in a few mouthful of the icy but fresh air. His face filled with joyful laughter, looking back at the unlatched door, his smile broadens. With quick steps he goes out to ask for hot water and food.
Mount Zhong Yi Manor, this is the home Liu Feng took her back to.
Qu Qing Yin shows not even the slightest signs of surprise.
Liu Feng laughingly says: “You really have already guessed it.”
She looks towards the tall, distance mountain manor, softly saying: “It is not like they deliberately hid it from me.”
“That is because, it is already certain that we are all one family, so why should we hide it from you.”
“But you also didn’t clearly state it.” She side glances at him.
“You’re so clever, if I make it so clear, what’s the point in that.”
“Glib-tongued with words of eloquence.”
Liu Feng looks at the golden hairpin in her hair, saying: “This hairpin is my mother’s most loved.”
Qu Qing Yin tilts her head as she looks at him, “Now that I think about it, you don’t seem to have ever given me a gift.”
Liu Feng pulls her in by the waist, laughingly saying: “I’ll gift you again in the bridal chamber.”
He does not say anything, guiding her towards the mountain manor’s main doors.
Only when they were approaching, did Qu Qing Yin realise the manor was decorated with lights and festoons, prepared just like it would be for a wedding, she could not help but to look at him with raised eyebrows.
Liu Feng very naturally says: “They’re just waiting for us two main characters to show up.”
“You sent out the invitations?”
“Only invited a selected few.”
Amongst these selected few, there is definitely womaniser Ji Chui Yu, so when they enter the manor and see Ji Chui Yu, Qu Qing Yin was not in the least surprised, it is just that……
“It looks like it’s just him.” Didn’t he say there are a few people.
“Congratulations to you both.” Ji Chui Yu walks up, holding his fist to congratulate them.
Liu Feng curtly responds, “Thank you.”
He turns to look at Qu Qing Yin, “Is lady Qu not liking the lack of guests?”
“No,” Qu Qing Yin shakes her head, “I only feel that if only you, this wedding guest, is not here either then how perfect that would be.”
Liu Feng’s fan opens up to hide his face, his shoulders trembling.
“It is not good to say that, no matter what, I am still the only wedding guest here.”
Qu Qing Yin bluntly asks: “Where is the wedding gift?”
Ji Chui Yu chokes on his own saliva, “Little Feng, are you really not going to prepare to say anything?”
Liu Feng sways the fan in his hand, smiling as he says: “She hasn’t said anything wrong, attending a wedding, where is your wedding gift?”
Ji Chui Yu could not help but to let out a sigh, “Indeed…the wife sings, the husband follows.”
At this time, two female attendants comes up, speaking to Qu Qing Yin: “Lady, please come with us to change your outfit.”
Liu Feng says: “You go first.”
Qu Qing Yin nods her head, she speaks no more and follows after the attendants.
Ji Chui Yu throws his arm around Liu Feng’s shoulder, playfully asking: “Are you planning to be your wife’s slave?”
Liu Feng asks back: “Why can’t I?”
“Really congrats, lord bridegroom.”
“Let’s go, accompany me to get changed.”
“Honestly speaking, I really haven’t seen you wear a red outfit before.”
“Perfect, you can see it this one time.”
“I am truly honoured.”
“Exactly when will I be able to drink your wedding wine?”
“This, you can only ask the heavens.”
Approximately an hour later, dressed in his bridegroom outfit, Liu Feng returns to the wedding ceremony hall. Once he spots Qu Qing Yin in a full body of red, supported by the matron of honour as she enters, he smiles and takes two steps forward.
Ji Chui Yu pulls him back just in time, warning him: “What you in such a hurry for?”
He bitterly laughs, “These ceremony customs are really troublesome.”
CHAPTER TEN (PART 2)
“A fortunate hour, a lucky day. Happily bow in thanks to the marriage hall……”
With the sound of the matchmaker’s voice, the wedding ceremony begins.
Grand madam Guan sits in the master seat, merrily smiling as she watches the lovers finally get married. Guan Guang En also stands at the side, his face lit with a bright smile.
Outside the mountain manor, firecrackers were set off, within a moment, a lively festive atmosphere flutters within.
Once husband and wife had bowed towards each other, the ceremony has already ended. In this wedding ceremony hall, Liu Feng lifts the bride’s head cover. This is the first time he had seen Qu Qing Yin after a meticulous makeover. The originally pretty face looks even more glorifying under the candlelights of the wedding ceremony hall.
“Lady wife, you really are beautiful.”
Qu Qing Yin smiles.
The female attendants brings forth two cups of wine, handing it to them.
Liu Feng toasts Ji Chui Yu, saying: “Many thanks for coming to attend our wedding ceremony.”
Qu Qing Yin also follows him with a toast.
Ji Chui Yu also toasts them in return them, all three simultaneously downing a cup of wine each.
Liu Feng leads his wife by the hand, kneeling down in front of grand madam Guan, “Many thanks to grand madam for putting your heart into helping us husband and wife prepare this wedding ceremony.”
“It is only right, it is only right.”
Qu Qing Yin places the wine cup down, taking hold of the tray from the female attendant, and raises it towards the grand madam, “May grand madam drink this tea.”
“Good.” Grand madam Guan places down a thick red envelop on the tray.
“Thank you, grand madam.”
“May you husband and wife remain sweet tempered, live on well in harmony.”
Grand madam Guan looks at Liu Feng with comfort, “Really you…wedding is a major life event, yet you planned for it to be so cold and cheerless. Really wronging a great lady.”
Qu Qing Yin speaks up for him, “Grand madam, this you cannot blame him, it is I who do not wish to get involved with Jiang Hu matters anymore. If he were to invite people, those invited would all be Jiang Hu people, it is still better to keep it nice and simple like this.”
“We have let you be wronged.” Grand madam Guan pats her hand.
Qu Qing Yin shyly bows her head, no longer saying anything.
“Okay then, since you have all rushed here, it must have been difficult. Go turn in for the night earlier.”
“Yes.” Liu Feng supports his wife to her feet, “May grand madam walk slowly.”
“No need to send me off, this old lady is still able to move, you all rest early.”
Once grand madam Guan had left, only Guan Guang En and Ji Chui Yu, as well as Liu Feng husband and wife, four people remains in the ceremony hall.
Guan Guang En says: “Today is your auspicious day, we shall not invite you to get drunk with us.
Ji Chui Yu stands aside, saying: “Yes, I and Guan Zhuan Zhu shall merrily drink away. You two go spend your wedding night.”
Liu Feng laughingly nods his head, “Then we husband and wife shall return to our room first.”
Ji Chui Yu waves his hand, “Go go, a moment of spring night is worth a thousand gold.”
Liu Feng husband and wife looks each other in the eye, only smiling at one another. Holding hands, they leave the ceremony hall together, returning to a newly arranged small courtyard that Mount Zhong Yi Manor had prepared for them to rest in.
Returning to the new room, Liu Feng helps his wife take down the headdress, “Is it tiring?”
He watches his wife take down the hair accessories, cleaning off the makeup, changing back to the refreshing and cool Qu Qing Yin, only then does he holds her waist as they both head over to the bed and sit down.
“Right now, is there anything you want to ask me?”
Qu Qing Yin leans her head onto his shoulder, from the open windows, she looks up to the moon in the sky, asking: “Does Ji Chui Yu not know?”
“He doesn’t know.”
“Isn’t he your best friend though?”
Liu Feng embraces her, together they look at the moon scenery outside the window, “Ever since the day I have left Mount Zhong Yi Manor, I can only be Liu Feng.”
“This is the rules of Mount Zhong Yi Manor?”
“En. If you want to, then stay guard at the mountain manor. If you want to, then spread your wings free.”
“Turns out, this is the reason why Mount Zhong Yi Manor is able to stand firm and not shake. Then would our children have to come back here later?”
“Depends on the situation.”
“Mount Zhong Yi Manor has a really huge responsibility, if possible, I feel it’s better to not come back.”
Liu Feng lightly laughs, “I also feel that way.”
“I love admiring the moon from the roof most.” She squints her eyes.
“Want to drink some wine?”
“I also feel tonight’s moon scenery isn’t bad, let’s go, up to the roof to admire the moon.”
“Are you crazy, such a cold day and you want me to go up to the roof to suffer the cold wind and admire the moon with you?” Qu Qing Yin just simply cannot cipher what goes on in his head.
Liu Feng sees her expression, and immediately laughs out loud, “It’s not often I see such a lively expression from you, as your husband, I am very pleased.”
In the end, of course they did not admire the moon from the roof, a moment of spring night is worth a thousand gold, Liu Feng has never been a wasteful person.
Once again coming to this town called Hong Ye Town, everything seems to look the same as it did one year ago.
They are still staying at that same inn from last time, this house, as long as you open the windows, you can see the pedestrians walking the streets.
Liu Feng sits at the window sill looking at the street view. He turns his head to the person lying in bed, “You feeling any better?”
Qu Qing Yin’s face looks pale, her voice lacking energy, “A little better.”
“How could there be such a big reaction?”
She only shakes her head.
He closes the window and sits by the bed, holding onto her hand, speaking dearly, “Seeing you like this really pains my heart.”
“All women has to go through this.”
He reaches out to cradle her face, sighing as he speaks: “Your body can’t even withstand the bumpy road, must you insist on coming?”
“The sweeping of graves day is almost here, plus the day I agreed upon with cousin has past, I can go home now.”
“Agreement? There were still agreements?”
“En, cousin disallowed me from going home for a year.”
“I thought he only didn’t want you to be found by me.”
“I believe there must be another reason.”
Liu Feng silently nods.
“Ou——” Qu Qing Yin suddenly feels sick again.
Liu Feng hastily grabs the spittoon and holds it up, seeing her trying to throw up the sour liquid but unable to let it out, his heart suddenly tightens, sketching out his self-blame. “Had I have known earlier, then we should not have gotten you pregnant.”
Qu Qing Yin directly spits towards him, “I don’t need belated efforts.”
“My heart is truly pained for my lady wife.”
“Before when I saw pregnant women’s reaction, I was still wondering if they were for real. Only when it came to my turn, did I realise just how difficult it is.”
“Let us rest here for another two days before we leave, we still have a long road ahead.”
Qu Qing Yin grabs a handkerchief to dab at her lips, whilst raising her head to look at him, “How do you know?”
“Lady wife, your husband is not that stupid. At that time when you did not allow me to follow along, I had already guessed it.” With her personality, she could not possibly give him the chance to find out where the graves are at that time, staying here was just a cover-up.
“At least you are considered obedient, not following after me.”
Liu Feng pours her a cup of water and hands it over, “Had I followed along would you not have been angry? Lady wife’s fumes, your husband I, would not dare to challenge in the slightest bit.”
“Really?” Qu Qing Yin drinks a mouthful of water, staring at him, “The amount of times you’ve messed with me is considered little?”
“That is the playful banter between husband and wife, it is different.”
“Fu Wei Trading Guild’s matters, are you not going over, is it really not that important?”
“The drunkard should be able to handle it, with lady wife in this state, I cannot bear to leave you alone.” He takes her emptied cup and puts it away, supporting her to lie back down, “Besides, all these right and wrongs in the Jiang Hu, which one of them can possibly be more important than my lady wife.”
Hearing this, Qu Qing Yin laughs.
“What’s so funny?”
“The gentleman Xiao Yao who loves meddling in matters most, to actually say such words, is that not funny?”
Liu Feng knows that he can’t hide it from her, honestly speaking: “Fu Wei Trading Guild’s matters aren’t hard to resolve, it is just that there is something rather troubling.”
Liu Feng sees that she seems to be looking fine, and continues to speak: “You still remember missy Shui?”
“Lately in the Jiang Hu there has been this matter of heroes gradually disappearing, I feel that this has something to do with her.”
“Lady wife does not care for Jiang Hu matters, naturally you would not have realised it. I am also suspicious that she has been practicing some sort of unorthodox martial arts.”
“I don’t think so.”
“En?” Liu Feng’s spirit picks up, he has always felt that his wife is someone of extremely high intellect, regarding some things she has some unique insights. Maybe her words can help him unlock his mind of doubt.
Qu Qing Yin’s eyebrows knits together, her voice slows, “Still remember the one who caused the feud between Master Shui and my senior brother, madam Shui?”
“Her?” Liu Feng frowns.
“Throughout these years she should have been accompanying Senior Brother, unfortunately when Senior Brother died, she has never revealed herself.”
“Maybe she is already dead?”
“If she is dead, then back then, my Senior Brother would probably have mentioned it to Shui Mu Yuan.” Qu Qing Yin pauses for a moment, “Besides, practicing yin and yang energy alike, such evil martial arts, must require two well-matched practitioners to complement one another.”
Liu Feng’s expression immediately turns imposing.
“Back then Senior Brother stole our sect’s forbidden martial arts manual. I heard from Shi Fu, that although this secret manual teaches a powerful form of martial arts, it is too overbearing. Even the slightest mistake could make one lose control and get possessed by their inner demons.”
Qu Qing Yin’s expression was slightly imposing, “On that day, the state my Senior Brother was in, he had already shown signs of being possessed by his inner demon, if he had actually got possessed, then he would completely lose his original nature, a great havoc. This is also the reason why our sect had banned this secret manual. It is just that in the end it is the blood and sweat of the founding master, which makes it inconvenient to destroy.”
“You have never spoke of this before.”
“But even if this secret manual has fallen into the hands on madam Shui, I believe she too will not be met with a good ending.”
Liu Feng looks at her with confusion.
She wipes her mouth, saying: “Shi Fu once told me, when he was young, he had once accidently ripped out a few pages, scared that his senior sister would scold him, he secretly burned those pages into ashes, in order to pretend everything is intact.”
Liu Feng’s mouth parts, helplessly rubbing his forehead.
Qu Qing Yin says: “You also know, Shi Fu has never admitted wrong his entire life, he was like that since young.”
Having said all that, Qu Qing Yin was not feeling too good, closing her eyes, “I’m going to sleep for a bit.”
“Ok, sleep.” He sits at the bedside, accompanying her.
After sweeping the graves, Qu Qing Yin returns to her home that she had long been absent from, but she had almost not been able to recognise her own house.
Seeing this newly built, extravagant looking residence, she had almost rubbed her forehead and groan out loud.
So this is the reason why her cousin did not allow her to return home!
A row of female attendants, a row of male attendants, and even a row of guards, greeting them in a perfectly uniformed manner.
Such a parade, even Liu Feng, wanted to rub his head in frustration. That imperial cousin really is overbearingly thoughtful.
“Cousin doing this, is he trying to make me flee his country?”
Liu Feng could not help but to burst out in laughter, “This is all considered his sincerity, besides you do require the care of others right now.”
“This really is too much……” She is already living her days with her diet and daily life being taken care of. Could it be from henceforth, she has to get used to it from the start again?
This is the sincerity of the emperor, both people could only accept it. Liu Feng stayed home to accompany his wife for five days, when it came to the sixth day, he gets shooed out of the house doors.
If gentleman Xiao Yao no longer meddles in others’ matters then he is no longer gentleman Xiao Yao, thus after hearing her say such words, he definitely cannot remain sitting there.
“Once I have attended to matters, I will be right back.” He promises before he leaves.
“Come back clean.” She requests of him.
