Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 53
But is that as easy to do as to say?
If it was so easy to attack An wang, then he wouldn’t be the crown prince’s largest obstacle today. Moreover, he hadn’t even able to pull in the general before acting so rashly.
Bai Ling wasn’t willing to gamble, and couldn’t afford to gamble. Bai Ling’s final decision was also due to Wenren Yunfei. If she hadn’t come to him with the request to harm the Princess, then he wouldn’t have been able to so quickly see the truth. He couldn’t believe that the fairylike FeiFei could become like this. She must have been deceived by the crown prince, he wanted to rescue his kindhearted fairy.
Zongzheng Mufeng lightly tapped his finger on the table, sinking into his own thoughts. He hadn’t cared too about the rustles of change coming from the crown prince’s estate. But since that woman dared to have such malicious thoughts, then he would give her a taste of her own medicine.
“Go back for now. If there’s any further news, you can let An Yi know. I will spare your life. If you work hard on this matter, I will make sure you will not have to worry about food and clothing for the rest of your life.” Let’s see how far this person will be willing to go. Someone who can even betray their own master could be willing to betray a new master in the future. Zongzheng Mufeng didn’t need bring in such a danger.
But if he delivers himself to his doorstep, why wouldn’t he use him? Everyone can say pretty words to get what they need. Especially since it is such a simple thing, he naturally would be able to promise him.
After Bai Ling left, An Yi and An Er silently waited for their Master’s instructions. “An Yi, go do as Wenren Yunfei asked and ruin her own face. Remember, make sure everyone sees it.” Didn’t you want to Belle to be the center of everyone’s disgust? Fine, I’ll let you have a taste too. An Yi accepted the order and left.
An Er, have someone watch over the crown prince estate. Increase the amount of guards at wangfei’s side.” Standing up, Zongzheng Mufeng went back into the room. Seeing Belle still sleeping soundly, his heart filled with warmth and sweetness. He picked up his outerwear and left through the hall.
He needed to take a trip to the palace.
. . .
“Mufeng, what are you doing entering the palace in the middle of the night? Shouldn’t you be accompanying your precious wangfei?” Zongzheng Muye inquisitively looked at his little brother sitting below him. He knew how much this man liked Wenren XunMi, always looking at her as if he wanted to keep her in his pocket at all times. At this hour, he’d want to see him rather than being wrapped in a warm embrace?
“Imperial brother, I’m not here to bicker with you. Tonight, Bai Ling honored my estate with his presence, informing me of a few things. Would imperial brother like to hear?” Zongzheng Mufeng lifted his tea.
Zongzheng Muye’s face grew serious, “Oh. Mufeng has quite a lot of skill to even be able to gain the loyalty of the crown prince’s lead guard.” Although his lips were smiling, there was no traces of smile in his eyes.
“Don’t jump to conclusions. I have no interest in that throne of yours. It doesn’t matter to me whether it’s you or your son sitting in it. The only reason I’m getting involved is because it involves my Belle.” Zongzheng Mufeng waved his hand mindlessly. With a few words, he had blocked the emperor’s test of suspicions. He sighed in his heart. Back then, the doting that Imperial Father and Empress Mother gave him still was etched into his older brother’s heart. Everyone envied the royal family, but in the end, what was there to envy?
“Oh, the crown prince is preparing to attack Princess RouJia?” Zongzheng Muye returned from his deep suspicions, restoring his astute and refined image.
Zongzheng Mufeng shook his head, “Not the crown prince, but his woman. She wanted to secret guard to come a ruin my wangfei’s face. Imperial brother, tell me. They even dare bully my people, how can I not fight back?” The man sitting on the throne could feel the pressure emitting from his little brother. This little brother of his definitely can’t be underestimated. Luckily, he really had no desire for the title of Emperor.
“The crown prince’s woman?” The crown prince had a lot of women.
“Wenren Yunfei.” A sneer formed on Zongzheng Mufeng’s face. “I don’t know how the Zongzheng imperial family had fallen to the point of even taking such a shameless plaything home, even treating her like a treasure.” She wasn’t even worthy of cleaning his Belle’s shoes, okay?
Zongzheng Muye’s face darkened as anger emitted out. “When did this happen?” The news of Wenren Yunfei had already spread throughout capital city.
“It’s been a few days.” He shrugged his shoulders.
“Tell me everything you know.”
“Bai Ling told me that the crown prince is preparing to force an abdication in the near future. As for where he even gets that audacity and how he roped in those court officials, I wouldn’t know. Alright, I’ve reported everything I know. I’m going to go home now. I’ll have to trouble imperial brother to warn crown prince and that woman.”
Doesn’t she like men so much? Alright, then he’ll give her all the men she wants. Doesn’t she think she’s the most beautiful woman in the world? Then he’ll spread her name. Doesn’t she want to live a luxurious life? Then he’ll help her.
When he returned to the estate, he found that the the room was brightly lit. Zongzheng Mufeng was worried that something had happened and quickly rushed in. There, he saw his beloved sitting at the head of the table as her head nodded tiredly, making him not know whether to laugh or cry.
He lightly lifted Belle up, “So disobedient, what are you doing up instead of sleeping What if you catch a cold?”
XunMi looped her arm around his neck and rubbed on his chest. In a sleepy voice, she replied “I was worried about you when you still weren’t back after so long. I can’t fall asleep without you. Waiting, for you, to sleep.” Her voice grew smaller and smaller.
Zongzheng Mufeng lowered his head to see that Belle was already asleep, causing him to smile helplessly. With this woman in his arms, he was feeling very content.
Imperial court, ceasing the world. None of that could compare to having his beloved forever by his side.
XunMi feeling woke up wellrested the next day at noon. The sun shone brightly, the spring weather was perfect. On these days, it was most suitable for a walk outside. The imperial physician also recommended exercising a bit in order to benefit for the fetus and the mother’s health.
The two of them didn’t go far, walking to the peach blossom tree that they had first met under. At the time, the tree was in full bloom. The image of her standing underneath instantly was imprinted into his heart. Even those beautiful peach blossoms could not distract from her eminent beauty.
It was like it was destined by fate: in the middle of a crowd, they would always be able to recognize each other at first glance.
