Chapter 461 Return to the Mansion
Before Xuanyuan Yaochen could speak, Xuanyuan Minhao entered the room.
"Oh, Brother fifth, you're back!" Xuanyuan Minhao said excitedly. When he turned to see Luo Jiuqing, he quickly arched his hand again. "Your highness, you are here too."
"Hello, Yiwang Highness." Luo Jiuqing smiled.
"No," Xuan Yuan minhao glanced at Xuanyuan Yaochen. "I'm almost bored to death. I still have to pretend to be on good terms with the crown prince. I have to do something in secret. It's almost split into two!"
Xuanyuan Yaochen smiled faintly. "This will prove that you are not a prince for nothing. Otherwise, it will not be for nothing to hold power, just to be a idle prince. Can you be willing?"
Xuan Yuan minhao was about to open his mouth when Luo Jiuqing said beside him, "Even if you do, your cousin probably won't marry a fool, right?"
"... Xuanyuan Minhao's eyes wandered around Xuanyuan Yaochen and Luo Jiuqing, and he didn't say anything to refute them after a long time.
"Forget it," he finally waved his hand. "Tell me what happened along the way. I've been running around the palace all day. I'm bored to death."
Xuanyuan Yaochen nodded. "Of course I'll tell you. Don't worry. Let me ask you first. Do you know about Duke rong's arrival in beijing?"
"Who?" Xuan Yuan minhao was stunned.
"Duke rong, Zheng Tian." Xuanyuan Yaochen repeated.
"Him? How could it be possible without hearing? How old is he? What is he doing in Capital city? Oh, by the way, isn't he dying of illness? It was the mid-autumn festival. He said that he was seriously ill, but he was afraid that he would not be sick for long. Wasn't this the folded son he gave his father to the emperor himself? I remember my father asking the eunuch to read it. Many people have visited him."
"Not only has he recovered, but he is also very strong. He has arrived in Capital city." Xuanyuan Yaochen said coldly.
"Into Capital city? Who did you hear that from?" Xuanyuan Minhao still didn't believe it.
"Just now," said Luo Jiuqing, "In front of the palace, he arrived a step earlier than us. I'm afraid he got wind of something and came to test him."
"This old man..." Xuanyuan Minhao cursed in a low voice. "The queen must have sent someone to invite him. Otherwise, how could it be such a coincidence? He is a hardline supporter of the empress and the crown prince, and he is not small."
"Not bad." Xuanyuan Yaochen nodded and said, "So we have to be careful not to be careless. Old sixth, this time he's here, he's going to make sure he knows everything, especially you and me. He's going to make sure we don't see each other in private."
"Okay, I understand." Xuanyuan Minhao promised, "Brother fifth, do you know everything about Capital city? I told you in my letter, what else do you understand?"
"No, I'll sort it out a little more. If you don't understand anything, ask the butler. Just be quiet for the next two days, and so are you. If there's nothing important, you won't go to court unless you go to court. Anyway, you were very tired from the disaster relief work a while ago, so you should go back to your home and rest for a while."
"Yes, yes." Xuanyuan Minhao nodded in agreement and said, "This person is right. You can't rest when there is a disaster. You can't rest when you are not there. You have to keep an eye on the movements of all sides. If there is any movement, you can report it to me. This is enough. I want to rest and have a good rest."
He mumbled as he walked away. It was not until he left that Luo Jiuqing couldn't help but smile. "I think you've taken him completely. Whatever you say, he trusts you now."
"That's also the result of my sincere treatment. Of course, your help is indispensable." Xuanyuan Yaochen held her in his arms and pressed his forehead against hers. "He loves Guo Qinghe so much. He's naturally very grateful that you saved him twice."
Luo Jiuqing was about to say something when he lowered his head slightly and kissed her lips.
"Qing er... What should we do? I can't bear to be separated from you like this... Otherwise, you'll move to the palace, okay?" He whispered in her ear, even begging.
Luo Jiuqing's heart warmed up a little, and she felt a little bitter and a little like laughing. This complicated feeling intertwined, making her not know what to say for a moment.
Her silence made Xuanyuan Yaochen think that she was unwilling, so she sighed and said, "This request... Is not very good indeed, I was abrupt, otherwise, I will explain to my father, let you and I get married early?"
Luo Jiuqing laughed angrily. "Stop fooling around. How could he be in the mood to get us married at this time? Not only will he not achieve his goal and let him use all kinds of reasons to prevaricate you, but he will also arouse his vigilance and pay attention to you all the time. Isn't that bad?"
"But..." Xuanyuan Yaochen's chin rested on her shoulder. "I can't stand not seeing you like this. What do you think we should do?"
"Why can't I see you?" Luo Jiuqing said helplessly, "But I live in the Los angeles. You are in Prince an's mansion. Now you are still calling me sick. You don't have to go to court. I am free too. I can go anywhere I want. In the worst case, you can go to the Los angeles. I can come to the palace easily. What's the problem?"
Xuanyuan Yaochen said nothing but hugged her, sniffed the fragrance from her body, and closed his eyes, unwilling to think of separating himself from her.
Ever since Luo Jiuqing was poisoned, his heart had never been at peace. He wished he could always follow her around and keep her within a meter's distance. Naturally, he could have been on the road before, but this time in Capital city, he separated two mansions from each other, which made him...
Xuanyuan Yaochen reluctantly let Luo Jiuqing stay in his house for a long time, and finally agreed to let her return to the Los angeles. If Luo Jiuqing did not stop her, he would have to send her away.
Luo Jiuqing got on the horse and couldn't help but laugh. A person's temperament could really change. If she hadn't experienced it personally and seen it with her own eyes, she couldn't believe that Xuanyuan Yaochen, who was as cold as a knife and wielding a sword to kill herself, would have become like this.
Laughing and riding back to the Los angeles, Dong Ling, Bai Mo, Mo Bai and the others had arrived and were all looking around in the yard. The butler was waiting at the door, stomping his feet in the cold, but his face was beaming.
As soon as he saw the horse galloping towards him, he hurried forward. Seeing that it was indeed Luo Jiuqing, he saluted with joy. "Princess, you are back. The general is in a hurry."
As he took the reins, he sent someone inside to inform him.
Luo Jiuqing talked to them as he walked in. Not long after he walked in, he saw a few people coming out. Luo Qingtian, who was walking in front of him, was dressed in casual clothes. His eyes were bright and full of expectation.
When she saw Luo Jiuqing, her face immediately burst into a smile. She walked a few steps forward. Luo Jiuqing hurriedly saluted and was supported by him.
Dong Ling also came over, wiping his tears and saluted. Dong Ling had not seen luo Jiuqing since he left the village. This time, she saw him, and her tears could not stop flowing.
Luo Jiuqing patted her on the shoulder. "All right, silly girl, why are you crying? Didn't I come back fine?"
Bai Mo and mo bai also came to see them. Luo Jiuqing talked to them one by one and said, "You guys go back to the yard and wait for me. I'll go to the study and have a few words with uncle."
The crowd dispersed. Luo Jiuqing followed Luo Qingtian to the study. The housekeeper closed the door outside and ordered the kitchen to make hot soup.
Luo Qingtian sighed with emotion. "Qing er, it's good that you're back. There's a letter from the cavalry battalion saying that none of them are missing. It's not easy... Qing er, you've really impressed me. You've done quite a bit of work this time."
"Uncle is full of praise. We rely on luck for many things. I can rest assured for the time being about Nanjiang. It's just a paragraph. I have another thing to tell you." Luo Jiuqing said in a low voice.
"Oh? What is it?"
"About General shen." Luo Jiuqing replied.
Luo Qingtian was startled and stood up involuntarily. He widened his eyes and said, "You said... You said... It was Shen Kang?"
"Yes," Luo Jiuqing nodded. "On my way back, I met a village where the father and son were General shen and his son."
"The ears have eyes, the sky has eyes..." Luo Qingtian's eyes were slightly moist. He walked back and forth a few steps and kept rubbing his hands. "That's great. That's great. Haha, this is great. I'm going to drink with this old guy. I miss him so much..."
"Uncle," Luo Jiuqing was delighted to see him, but it was not the right time. "Don't forget that the Shen family are still rebelling against their ministers. They haven't been pacified yet. Even if they are alive, they can't appear in public, let alone talk freely with you and drink freely."
Luo Qingtian's eyes darkened and the smile on his face quickly faded. He knew that Luo Jiuqing was right. The Shen family was a big crime of plagiarism. Mrs. Shen and Shen Kang's little daughter both died under the knife of the imperial court. The blood on the street that day was dyed red. Although the father and son of the Shen family escaped, they hid their names and went far away. There was no news from them.
Now, although I have the information of my old friend, he is still guilty. If he was found in the capital, it would cause a great uproar and get himself killed.
How is this good?
"Uncle," Luo Jiuqing said from the side, "A lot has happened along the way. There are also many situations in the Shen family village. Let me explain them to you one by one."
Luo Qingtian sat back down, and Luo Jiuqing told him in detail what happened in the Shen family stockade, as well as the fact that the father and son of the Shen family had already come to Capital city. Luo Jiuqing was very excited, but also very worried.
Luo Jiuqing said, "Uncle, things have come to this point, the Shen family father and son must stay, and those Shen Jiajun, there can be no mistakes, so I have a thing to discuss with you."
Say it. This time, no matter what, we can't let Shen family father and son suffer again." Luo Qingtian said with a serious face.
"I remember the last time I went to the xiao qi camp, there was a mountain range behind the barracks?" Luo jiu guessed that it was a good idea.
"Yes, indeed. There is a long and narrow valley, and the terrain is very steep. Although the xiao qi camp is very close to there, it is not often entered because of the terrain," Luo Qingtian nodded and said. Suddenly, he seemed to think of something and suddenly stopped.
He looked at Luo Jiuqing and remained silent for a moment, then said in shock, "You... You mean?"
"Yes," Luo Jiuqing looked at him and knew that he had thought of it, "You guessed right. That's what I thought. What do you think?"
"Okay, okay," Luo Qingtian was happy again. "How did I forget about that place? It's really a good place, a good place."
"Uncle, we need you to discuss this matter with the xiao qi camp as soon as possible. If not as I expected, General shen will arrive tomorrow, and the Shen Jiajun will arrive one after another. Everything will be carried out in an orderly manner."
"Okay," Luo Qingtian nodded. "I'll go to the camp tomorrow morning to arrange it."
"Okay." Luo Jiuqing continued, "There is one more thing that you need to pay extra attention to. This is not good news compared to what just happened."
