Chapter 120: A struggling heart

After entering the room, Song Qingshu saw Yu Yutong sitting quietly in the corner, with his handsome face and his unique temperament, he really deserved the reputation of a lady killer.

“This Song admires Leader Yu’s calmness.” Hearing Song Qingshu’s words, Yu Yutong opened his eyes and glanced at him.

There was a trace of resentment in his eyes, as Yu Yutong sneered, “May I know what advice Master Song has for me?”

“I don’t dare to give advice.” Song Qingshu said nonchalantly, “It’s just that the emperor has ordered the few of you to be executed tomorrow, and this Song has come to see you one last time.”

Yu Yutong couldn’t help trembling, but he still faintly smiled, “Before we entered the palace to assassinate, we already had the determination to die, but unfortunately we didn’t succeed in the end, and so I would like to thank you for your contributions.”

“I don’t dare to take any credits.” Song Qingshu said with a smirk, “You and I are both helpless, poor people in this cruel world.”

“Master Song came here for a purpose, I’m afraid you didn’t come here just for casual chat.” Yu Yutong looked at him suspiciously.

“This Song was requested by someone and came to rescue Yu Shaoxia from this place.” Song Qingshu said.

“Who is it that requested you?” Yu Yutong did not believe what Song Qingshu said, his expression was full of caution, and he kept guessing what tricks this guy was trying to pull.

“A cute little girl.” Song Qingshu did not directly name Li Yuanzhi.

“It’s her?” Yu Yutong was a little lost in thought for a moment, and quickly realized who the other party was talking about.

“How could she be with you?” Yu Yutong was full of worry for her wellbeing.

“Now is not the time to discuss these issues.” Song Qingshu shook his head without answering, and slowly turned around in the room, “This Song is in charge of investigating the backgrounds of the leaders of the Red Flower Society, and I happened to find an interesting relationship.”

“What is it?” Yu Yutong’s felt heart jump, and his expression suddenly became unnatural.

“There was a young and handsome man with both civil and military skills, he had a bright future in the Society, but alas, he fell in love with a beautiful young woman with a bewitching aura. And this young woman was also the wife of his righteous brother. He truly was the number one heartless and unrighteous person through the ages…” Song Qingshu’s voice stopped abruptly, because the more he spoke, the more strange his expression became, how come this story feels like he was talking about himself and Bing Xue’er. His words seemed to slap his own face a bit.

“Stop talking!” Falling in love with Luo Bing was Yu Yutong’s biggest inner demon in his life, and he suffered a lot for it.

“What’s this?” Song Qingshu sneered, “It’s normal for a man to love a woman, as long as the other party has you in her heart, so what if she is someone else’s wife, can’t you just get a divorce?”

“But the Fourth sister-in-law loves Fourth Brother Wen very much, and she only has the relationship of brother and sister with me.” Yu Yutong murmured.

“What if Leader Wen suddenly dies? If you take advantage of the situation, won’t Luo Bing fall in love with you?” Song Qingshu’s expression at this moment was like a little devil with horns on his head.

Hearing Song Qingshu’s words, Yu Yutong’s heartbeat accelerated rapidly. Although he knew that he should not think in that direction, he couldn’t help but wonder, ‘The Fourth sister-in-law doesn’t seem to be unsympathetic when she usually looks at me. If the Fourth Brother were to…’

Before he could even finish thinking about it, Yu Yutong slapped himself, and his voice trembled, “Yu Yutong, you are worse than a beast!”

“You have the heart of a beast, but not the guts of a beast. You are truly pitiful.” Song Qingshu glanced at him with contempt, and continued to tempt him, “Don’t worry, what we said today will only be known by the two of us.”

“As long as you say a word, I can arrange for a little accident to happen when I save you, and make Wen Tailai die at the hands of the guards. No one will doubt you, and you can hold the woman of your dreams after you go out. What do you think?”

“What do you want from me?” Yu Yutong’s eyes were red, he knew that there was no free lunch in the world, and he asked while being a little out of breath.

“Didn’t I say that I was entrusted by a cute girl? That girl is beautiful, has a very cute personality, and fits my taste, but she has always been obsessed with someone. So I thought of having that someone go away as soon as possible. I want to clear away the little girl’s thoughts of him from her mind.” A gloomy look flashed on Song Qingshu’s face, if Yu Yutong really agreed, wouldn’t it be more convenient for him to take the opportunity to trick and destroy him and Wen Tailai at the same time?

Yu Yutong obviously struggled violently in his heart, but in the end, reason prevailed over desire, and his eyes became clear, “This Yu will not be such an ungrateful person, and I don’t need your help. I hope Miss Li can see your true face as soon as possible.”

Although most of the time Song Qingshu acted like a cunning fox, he also admired such an upright person in his heart. Seeing his refusal, he applauded this man in his heart, but he said, “What’s wrong if Miss Li becomes mine? Wouldn’t she be happier to be a madam than to be a widow with someone like you who walks on a knife’s edge?”

Yu Yutong stayed silent, he felt that what the other party said was somewhat reasonable, and said disheartenedly, “Okay, I just hope you treat her well.” After speaking, he closed his eyes and ignored Song Qingshu’s provocation.

Song Qingshu felt bored, turned around and left. When he passed by the door of Wen Tailai’s cell, he heard his roar on the other side, “Dog official, come here!”

His eyes lit up, and Song Qingshu walked in and looked at him expectantly, “Why have you called me, did you make a decision?”

“Give me the paper and pen!” Wen Tailai bitterly squeezed out a few words.

Song Qingshu was overjoyed, he hurriedly prepared a paper and a pen, and handed them over. As he looked at the other party’s hurried writing, he laughed to himself, ‘It seems that I am really born to be a villain.’

“A divorce paper?” Song Qingshu took a look at it, frowned, and shook his head, “I asked you to give her to me, but I didn’t want a divorce paper.”

“You!” Wen Tailai suddenly stood up and glared at him.

“We all know that our Fourth Leader Wen is a great hero and as a great hero, you should not be so reluctant, or your brothers may die because of you.” Song Qingshu didn’t care, and continued, “Since you already have a decision in your heart, so why not quickly cut to the chase? If you do that, then I will have more time to plan and rescue you, and your brothers.”

Wen Tailai’s face twitched for a while, then he gritted his teeth and urgently picked up a pen. After a moment of struggle he handed the paper into Song Qingshu’s hands. After he did so, Wen Tailai’s strong and steady hands couldn’t help but tremble.

Song Qingshu took a look at the paper and nodded with satisfaction, “I didn’t expect that even though you are a reckless man from the wulin, you still have quite a bit of literary talent.”

“Song Qingshu, I will definitely try my best to kill you after I go out of here.” Wen Tailai seemed like a wounded lion, with hatred in his eyes.

Song Qingshu raised his head, stared at Wen Tailai and said with a sneer, “Are you not afraid that I will cause an accident when I save you and send you to the underworld first?”
