Chapter 476 The Two Concubines’ Scheme, A Secret Meet in the Jinwei Pavilion
A trace of gloom and fierceness flashed in Feng Yuran’s handsome eyes, but soon turned into tenderness. His slender fingers stroked Mo Xuetong’s black hair, untied her hair bun, and caressed her silky hair, and he said in a soft voice. “You’re talking something strange to me again. It’s alright. Doesn’t Tong’er believe me?”
Concealing the cruelty in his eyes, he was more like a fierce beast protecting his cub at this moment.
In any case, he would find the antidote to save Tong’er.
Mo Xuetong said softly, “Tong’er definitely believes you.” She patted his tight back and soothed him. At that moment, he still kept a straight face, but in fact, he was furious already.
“I’m fine now, thanks to your medicine. Rest a.s.sured, your medicine is effective, otherwise, I can’t be so well now. Rest a.s.sured, I will be fine. The toxin will be detoxified little by little. You might forget that I also know something about medical skills.”
It was the first time that Mo Xuetong had unreservedly expressed her views on the poison inside her body to Feng Yuran. Some words had been hidden in his heart, because it would link to her mother, Luo Xia, when she mentioned it, which would bring inexpressible sorrow and agony, or something else to her. Mo Xuetong could not tell what the thing was indeed, so she had to subconsciously bury everything about Luo Xia.
But now, seeing the brutality hidden in Feng Yuran’s eyes, Mo Xuetong felt her heart ached suddenly…
If she escaped again, he would become more suspicious. Wasn’t it easier for two persons to face it than one?
“It’s good that it works. The bath pool is modeled on hot spring, but it is not natural. After some days, we will go to the secondary courtyard where the hot spring is more effective.” Feng Yuran said in a conciliatory tone, and looked at Mo Xuetong quietly. Seeing her smiling brightly and calmly, but not perfunctorily, he felt a bit relieved finally.
That medicine might not be the real antidote, but still worked definitely.
He patted her head, sensed her warmth, and took a long breath out. He made up his mind again that he would find an antidote for Tong’er at any price.
Mo Xuetong felt her heart melted, gave Feng Yuran a nudge, and took a long breath, and she said prettily, “Come out. I’m going to take a bath, and it’s hot here.”
After saying the words, she shook her hand like a fan. Since the hot spring was prepared for her, there must be a certain amount of Chinese medicine in it. As she breathed, she could smell some medicine, each of which was precious for her, but was not the same case for Feng Yuran.
All the medicine was poisonous, to some extent. So a healthy person should stay away from the herbs.
“Tong’er is so anxious to take a bath with your husband. Fine, I am anxious to be with you.” Seeing she was in a good mood, Feng Yuran was relieved inwardly, and his lips curled up slightly. He put down Mo Xuetong and stood up, about to undress. With a flirtatious glance at Mo Xuetong, Feng Yuran acted like a playboy, and even arched his eyebrows at her. Bathed in the vapor, he looked more distinguished and charming.
Mo Xuetong could not help but let out a sigh that being too handsome was a sin for a man. This kind of man was born to seduce women. How could a man have such good looks?
She raised her pink and attractive slightly, and pushed him hard to the side. She flushed, pretended to be angry, and said, “Please leave here quickly. If you continue to say, I will not take the bath.”
If he still stayed here, she could not control herself but came to fondle his face.
Seeing that she was deliberately pretending to be angry to conceal her bashfulness, and glaring at him with feigned calmness, Feng Yuran could not help laughing. His Tong’er only behaved like a pretty woman in front of him, which satisfied him a lot.
Knowing that she would turn angry from shame if he went on saying, he simply stopped, reached over to give a kiss on her sweet lips, and left with a laugh before Mo Xuetong got angry.
Feng Yuran strode out, and the smile on his face faded away slowly and was replaced by an austere, terrifying look. His eyes narrowed coldly with his eyebrows raising. Compared to his common charming expression, he looked more ferocious with a forbidding killing intent, which shocked Feng Yue who was following him to simply bend down, step back and pretend to be dumb.
However, Feng Yuran stopped walking and stood still suddenly, and Feng Yue narrowly reacted to his abrupt movement and almost hit him.
Feng Yuran raised his eyebrows and regained calmness in his eyes. He said with a mocking sneer, “When the days pa.s.s, ask the guards not to keep a close eye on the backyard. I heard that a few playboys usually pa.s.sed through my backyard.”
Startled, Feng Yue grumbled unbelievably after a long while, “Your Highness, if the vigilance in the backyard is slackened, then everyone is able to come in… As for those playboys, I asked people to beat them last time, so that they didn’t dare to hang around the manor. Now if…”
Feng Yuran laughed and seemed to be in a good mood. His eyes glittered, and he said smilingly, “Feng Yue, you’re so boring. Just a few of my friends of like mind wanted to sneak into the manor to see my collection. It’s not a big deal. I am not a stingy man. There are various kinds of women in the backyard, each of whom is attractive in her own way. Why not let them have a look?”
Not a stingy man?
Feng Yue pouted secretly and thought, there would not be a stingy man in the world, if His Highness was not counted. In the past, when His Highness privately met Her Highness, Feng Yue just took a few more glances, and His Highness looked surly and even made things hard for him. But thanks to Feng Yue’s cleverness and sharp observation, he came to realize the truth in time, and every time he saw Her Highness, he would lower his head, otherwise, he must lead a difficult life now.
Of course, Feng Yue would not tell it directly to Feng Yuran, because it was equal to courting death. The king held his consort in extremely high regard in his mind.
Unwilling to guess in that respect, Feng Yue asked prosaically, “Then… Your Highness, you mean?”
“I meant nothing, and just feel the backyard is so spiritless and the group of women are lonely, aren’t they? Anyway, the yards they are living in are so big and close to the back door, which provides facility to come in and go out. And it is separated by a door from Tong’er’s real backyard. Be on guard there more strictly, and do not allow anyone to come to Tong’er’s backyard willfully.”
Feng Yuran said leisurely. Now, he was in good humor. As the wind blew his large sleeves, he stood straight in the wind with fluttering sleeves, plus his handsome look, which was rather alluring. But Feng Yue just had a dry mouth, feeling weak and chilly. He could not help but sigh inwardly that His Highness was too partial to the extreme.
“Yes, I will do it.”
Feng Yuran nodded his head and said unconcernedly with a soft smile at the corner of his mouth that even he did not notice, “You don’t have to do it and leave it to w.a.n.g Fu. Ask him to make good arrangements and don’t make any rash action. When Her Highness casts a bone well in the backyard, deals with those standing out, and when she plays enough, deal with the rest and don’t mess up Her Highness’ plan.” Then, Feng Yuran strode out.
Feng Yue felt chillier, and ran to keep up with his master.
“Your Highness, the prince of Southern Barbarian Lands asks to see Your Highness privately.”
Feng Yuran put his hands behind his back and smile slightly, “I have been grounded by His Majesty these days, so I am powerless to render any help to that crown prince.”
“Yes, I see.” Feng Yue certainly understood that Feng Yuran wanted to leave out the Crown Prince of Southern Barbarian Lands. On the other hand, Feng Yuran also needed time to integrate and contemplate more carefully the information from the Southern Barbarian Lands, so Feng Yue took the hind and nodded understandingly.
After taking a bath, Mo Xuetong went back to her yard to take a nap and awoke feeling rested and refreshed. But she just got up for a while, and she heard a noise from outside. Mo Xuetong took a look at Mo Lan who seemed to be deaf to the noise, and then cupped around the iced watermelon juice and took a sip.
Mo Lan waited for Mo Xuetong finished drinking, took the celadon flower bowl, and said to Mo Xuetong in a soft voice, “My Lady, Concubine Yun is here. She said Concubine Lian was ill and wanted to find a doctor outside. But the manor’s door was closed, so they could not go out. Concubine Yun hurriedly came to see you, hoping you to help them find a doctor.”
It was an excuse to find a doctor, but the truth to feel out Mo Xuetong.
Since the front gate of the manor was closed, the guards for the concubines in the back yard became lax. Although Mo Xuetong did not ask them to pay respects, she did not ban them to come, either. So the concubine’s coming showed that they couldn’t wait any longer.
But what did they want to feel out? Mo Xuetong was silent and curved her lips coldly. Of course, she did not think that these concubines were in a good relations.h.i.+p.
Something seemed to occur to her, and she frowned slightly and asked suddenly, “Where is His Highness?”
“His Highness said he went to the front to read books, And then, Steward w.a.n.g said in order not to disturb your rest, His Highness came to the Jinwei Pavilion to take a nap. You wake up early, and His Highness may still take a nap now.” Mo Lan answered after thinking, but she seemed to remember something. Her face turned pale with a shock flas.h.i.+ng in her eyes.
Mo Xuetong asked softly, “How long has Concubine Yun been here?”
“Concubine Yun has been here for a while, at least an hour. She was messing outside, crying and shouting to see you. Mo Lan told her that you’re taking a nap, and she had to lower her voice.” Mo Yu also understood the situation, looked at Mo Lan, and said discontentedly, “Just now, I wanted to drive her away, but Mo Yu said it was not proper. No matter what, Concubine Yun is His Highness’ person.”
After finis.h.i.+ng words, Mo Yu tidied up the stuff on the table angrily and complained for Mo Xuetong.
Mo Lan said hesitantly, “My Lady, would you want to go to the Jinwei Pavilion?”
Mo Xuetong’s watery eyes narrowed slightly, and then, she said calmly, “No.”
Concubine Yu came an hour ago. So during the time, something would have happened if it would. But Mo Xuetong would rather believe that Feng Yuran was sincere to her, and would rather believe that Feng Yuran would not treat her like that.
Thinking as she was, she seemed to see everything in Jinwei Pavilion, where Feng Yuran was talking and smiling with another woman. The thought made Mo Xuetong heart-struck and angry.
Seeing the sudden change on Mo Xuetong’s face, Mo Yu put down the stuff in her hands, hurried to rub Mo Xuetong’s back, and said with anger, “My Lady, what ails you? Do you need to take a rest? I will send people to drive them away. It is rather noisy outside.”
