Song Qingshu looked back and saw a woman slowly walking out of the inner hall. Her face, as crystal clear as jade, reflected the red candlelight in the hall.
“Brother Song, this is my eldest wife Fang Yi.” Wei Xiaobao hugged Fang Yi’s shoulder proudly.
A trace of disgust flashed in Fang Yi’s eyes, but she still let him hug her. (Goblin: Find out why at the end of the chapter.)
“Fang Yi?” Looking at the beautiful woman in front of him, and thinking of the black and thin Fang Yi in Chen Xiaochun’s version of ‘The Deer and the Cauldron’, Song Qingshu criticized the drama version, and thought to himself, ‘Although I have nothing against Eas*n Chen for having a good relationship with his wife, but Xu Haoying’s (Hil*ry Tsui) face is really not that appealing.’ (Goblin: Eas*n Chen is a singer and actor, Hil*ry Tsui is his real life wife who played the part of Fang Yi in the TVB drama in 1998.)
“I’ve seen Big Brother Song.” Fang Yi sighed in surprise when she saw Song Qingshu, ‘What a handsome man…’
“Sister-in-law, don’t be too polite.” Song Qingshu humbly supported and said, “Brother Wei has informed me about the matter just now, and after he goes north, this Song will try his best to ensure your safety.”
“Brother Song, for various reasons, she was forced to join the Mystic Dragon Cult. In order to control his subordinates, the Mystic Dragon Cult leader would give them Leopard Embryo Tendon Severing Pills. This medicine is extremely vicious…” Wei Xiaobao explained the matter to Song Qingshu and looked at him with hope, “Brother Song is very skilled in martial arts, I wonder if he has a way to cure this poison?”
Noticing that Fang Yi’s body trembled involuntarily just now, Song Qingshu hurriedly comforted them, “Brother and sister-in-law, don’t worry, I have also heard about the medicinal properties of Leopard Embryo Tendon Severing Pills. Although I don’t have any medical skills, I know someone who can detoxify this poison.”
Fang Yi trembled a little when she heard the information. That poison was like maggots on her tarsal bones, which made her worry all day. So she asked quickly, “Really?
Seeing her pitiful appearance, Song Qingshu thought to himself, ‘Wei Xiaobao is indeed a good-for-nothing…’
“Brother Wei and sister-in-law can go to Dongting Lake to find the Poison King. I believe that with that old man’s methods, curing this poison will not be an issue for him. It’s just that the Poison King has a weird personality, um, I have a little familiarity with the Poison King, and when the time comes, I will write a letter for you to bring with you. He should help you.”
Fang Yi was overjoyed, her breathing became extremely rapid, “Thank you, Brother Song!”
Wei Xiaobao on the side couldn’t help but feel a little jealous. ‘I helped her so many times, but she had never thanked me so sincerely. Women really act differently when it comes to handsome men…’
After the banquet was over, Wei Xiaobao personally sent him to the door. Song Qingshu walked towards the palace gate of the Forbidden City, turning around and waving from time to time. When he turned the corner, Song Qingshu stopped and erased his smile.
Seeing that there was no one around, Song Qingshu used his movement technique and sneaked back to Wei Xiaobao’s mansion. Before this, he had visited this mansion several times at night, but each time he returned without success, and he did not find any trace of the “Sutra of Forty-two Chapters”.
“Although I already know that the Manchu treasure is in Luding Mountain in Liaodong, but where is this Luding Mountain, and where the treasure is located in that Luding Mountain, I have no idea. It is impossible to know without the treasure map.” Song Qingshu searched while avoiding the patrolling guards.
Song Qingshu vaguely remembered from the original book that Wei Xiaobao seemed to hide the “Sutra of Forty-two Chapters” in a coffin, but he couldn’t find the coffin after searching for so many times. He got nothing.
After Song Qingshu searched the last place, he frowned in disappointment, thinking that the “Sutra of Forty-two Chapters” might not be in the mansion.
Just as he was about to turn around and walk away, Song Qingshu suddenly thought of something in his heart and looked at a house in the distance. The candles were flickering in the house, and a shadow was vaguely reflected in the window. He knew that it was Wei Xiaobao’s bedroom. And with a flick, he landed on the roof of the bedroom.
He carefully lifted the roof tiles, and heard the voices of a man and a woman inside. So, Song Qingshu looked inside cautiously.
“Shuang’er, why didn’t you go out and meet Brother Song today?” Wei Xiaobao asked.
“I’m feeling a little unwell today. I felt too lazy to go out because you had Miss Fang to accompany you anyway.” Shuang’er said lazily, but in her heart she remembered that Song Qingshu had eaten a lot of tofu that night. She was very angry from that incident and didn’t want to see him again. Of course, this reason could not be explained to her Xiaobao. (Goblin: I think you guys already know this but the term “Eating Tofu” means taking advantages of the sexual nature.)
“My Shuang’er is actually jealous,” Wei Xiaobao said, pretending to be surprised, “Come here, let your husband check and see what’s wrong!” He stretched out his hand and tried to untie Shuang’er’s clothes.
“Oh,” Shuang’e face turned pale, and she hurriedly dodged, but unfortunately she was still a step late, and Wei Xiaobao ripped off her coat at once, revealing her round and snow-white shoulders.
Seeing the two of them enjoying their peachy time, Song Qingshu turned his head subconsciously, feeling extremely regretful in his heart, ‘It would be fine to watch if I didn’t know him, but Wei Xiaobao has a good relationship with me…’
Just as he was about to leave full of regret, Song Qingshu suddenly had a flash of realization in his mind, remembering the scene he had just glanced at, and hurriedly turned around and looked inside carefully.
Shuang’er clung tightly to the underwear on her body with both hands, constantly avoiding Wei Xiaobao’s evil hands, her jade-like smooth skin looming in the gauze.
But this is not the key point. Song Qingshu’s eyes narrowed, and he saw that Shuang’er’s underwear seemed to be embroidered with a complex pattern. If it weren’t for his deep internal energy and sharp eyes, he was afraid it would only be regarded as an ordinary embroidery. It would be impossible to see that there was a map embroidered on it.
Sure enough, Shuang’er said, “Xiaobao, don’t make trouble, are you not afraid of tearing the embroidered clothes…”
“I’m assured of my Shuang’er’s craftsmanship. Besides, it’s embroidered with soft gold thread, which is not so easy to tear up,” The more Wei Xiaobao spoke, the more proud he became. ‘Everyone is looking for the “Sutra of Forty-two Chapters”, how could they know that I had already stolen the map and embroidered it on my family members’ innerwear. The only pity is that the two copies of Wu Sangui and Prince Bao are missing.’
Slapping away the hands that wanted to do naughty things, Shuang’er spat out, “Look at how proud you are, if one day I run away with another handsome man, you won’t have time to cry.”
“If it was Fang Yi, then that is really a possibility,” Wei Xiaobao smiled, “But even if everyone in the world betrays me, my beloved will definitely be on my side, so I can rest assured…”
“I know that you are only coaxing me by saying nice things…” Shuang’er was shy, and she felt sweet in her heart.
Seeing that the two began to flirt again and didn’t say any meaningful information, Song Qingshu hurriedly jumped out of the mansion.
‘It’s easy to get the map on Shuang’er at any time, but it’s bound to startle the snake.’ Song Qingshu walked back to the palace, weighing the stakes in his heart, ‘It doesn’t matter if I take it sooner or later, if I do it now, I will destroy the familiar plot, and I will lose more than I will gain. One of the remaining two sutras is with Wu Sangui, and the other is with Prince Bao. I’m afraid it will be hard to get them, so stealin Shuang’er’s map is useless… It’s better to wait for Wei Xiaobao to get the other two sutras and get them all together.’
After making up his mind, Song Qingshu finally put down a big stone in his heart and walked towards the palace with a smile on his face.
