The sound of swallowing saliva came from beside him, Song Qingshu looked back and saw Wei Xiaobao also staring at Ake’s back, rubbing his hands together, as if he wanted to reach out and touch it, but he didn’t dare to abruptly touch this beautiful woman.
Song Qingshu was a little hesitant, thinking that if Wei Xiaobao really tried to touch her, he would stop him even if he had to offend him. The girl in front of him was as pure as jade and as clear as a crystal. The innate possessiveness of men made Song Qingshu subconsciously not want her to be taken advantage of by other men.
It didn’t take long for Ake’s body to move suddenly, and the two of them seemed to be scorched, and they straightened up at the same time to take a posture of sitting upright.
Ake didn’t realize the filthy thoughts of the two men behind her just now, and after seeing Princess Jianning’s face, she turned and left the place with satisfaction.
Song Qingshu and Wei Xiaobao looked at each other and followed, “I wonder how the honored lady thinks after seeing her?”
“She’s only so-so…” Ake said with a smile on her lips, “Although she’s a little worse than this lady, but she’s still a beauty, and my brother shouldn’t hate her.”
Wei Xiaobao felt furious when he heard her words, and he said ruthlessly in his heart, ‘She’s not only your brother’s wife, but also mine.’
Song Qingshu was about to say something, but his expression suddenly tightened and he stared into the shadows and said, “Your Excellency secretly broke into the princess’ entourage, you should know that it’s a severe crime with the punishment of family eradication.” After speaking, he flipped the palm of his hand to perform the Twin Dragons Fetch Water, and forcefully sucked out the assailant.
The unknown visitor turned pale in shock, apparently not expecting Song Qingshu’s martial arts to be so strong, so he had to insert his saber into the ground, desperately resisti the suction from the opponent’s palm.
“Brother Yang?” When Wei Xiaobao saw who the newcomer was, he quickly said, “Brother Song, he is on our side, and this is a misunderstanding.”
Song Qingshu let go of his hands in doubt, and the unknown visitor finally breathed a sigh of relief. He secretly wiped his cold sweat, clasped his fists and said, “I have heard for a long time that an excellent young master of martial arts has appeared in the imperial court recently. This humble one got to see him today, and he really lives up to his reputation. This humble one Yang Yizhi, has met Lord Wei, General Song.”
Song Qingshu suddenly realized that it was the “Yang Yizhi” who had a good relationship with Wei Xiaobao. In the original book, because of his relationship with Wei Xiaobao, after Wu Sangui decided to rebel, he was worried about his fornication, so he concocted him into a human stick. Pity Yang Yizhi was loyal to Wu Sangui, and he ended up like this.
Ake, who was on the side, saw him, and her expression changed greatly. She secretly turned around and wanted to slip away, but Yang Yizhi stopped her, “Princess, please stay. This lowly official has received the will of King Pingxi, and he will do everything possible to take the princess back to the palace. If you are offended, I hope the princess will forgive me.”
“The palace is too boring, I want to look around, wander around and then return.” Ake rolled her eyes as she spoke..
“Yes, Big Brother Yang, since the princess wants to just look around, why not let her? There is a master like Big Brother Song here, so there is no need to worry about the safety of the princess.” Wei Xiaobao on the side was unwilling to let Yang Yizhi bring Ake back to the palace, and quickly spoke out to help.
Ake glanced at him in surprise. For the first time tonight, she felt that Wei Xiaobao was a little less annoying. After being stared at by her, Wei Xiaobao’s whole body immediately froze in ecstasy.
Yang Yizhi knew exactly for what reason the princess ran away from home, but that reason was not easy to explain to Wei Xiaobao, so he had to say to Ake, “Princess, that person has come here in person, so you can quietly take a look. The lord has spoken, if the princess is not satisfied with him, he will not force you.”
“Is what you said true?” Ake looked suspicious.
“Of course it’s true, how dare this lowly official deceive the princess.” Yang Yizhi replied respectfully, Wei Xiaobao on the side heard them play dumb riddles with each other, and got confused. Song Qingshu just heard from Ake that Wu Sangui had betrothed her to Prince Bao’s heir. That would be Fukang’an, who was quite important, and his expression turned solemn, ‘Fuk’anggan also came to Shanhaiguan?’
“But you clearly said just now that you would do anything to bring me back?” Ake was obviously moved, but she said worriedly, “How do I know you didn’t say that on purpose to deceive me?”
Yang Yizhi smiled bitterly and said, “Even if this lowly official has the guts, he would not dare to falsely pass on the order of the lord.”
“That’s true.” Ake nodded, finally believing him. King Pingxi had always been very strict. If Yang Yizhi dared to use his name to talk nonsense, even if he captures Ake, as long as Ake speaks after the incident, Yang Yizhi would be punished very severely.
“Okay, I’ll go back with you first.” After saying that, Ake didn’t even look at Song Qingshu and Wei Xiaobao, and turned around and walked towards Shanhaiguan. Yang Yizhi quickly said goodbye to the two and chased after them.
Unlike Wei Xiaobao, who looked at Ake’s disappearing figure with a dejected appearance, Song Qingshu was secretly angry, thinking that Ake was born with a gold spoon in her mouth, but he was a nobody, so how could she put him in her eyes?
“Is a prince very amazing?” Song Qingshu sneered and turned away. After all the confusion he faced during this period, his heart was suddenly full of motivation.
On the second day, the betrothal entourage made various preparations early in the morning, then they heard the sound of a horn blowing from the direction of Shanhaiguan, and an officer came to report, “King Pingxi is here to welcome the Princess.”
Song Qingshu and Wei Xiaobao rode forward, and saw a group of soldiers with bright armor, riding high-headed horses, galloping to the front, dismounting together, and lining up on both sides. When the first person walked straight to the princess’ carriage, he bowed and said, “This humble one, King Wu Sangui of Pingxi, sees Her Royal Highness Princess Jianning.”
Song Qingshu on the side looked at Wu Sangui carefully. The man had a majestic body, a purplish chiseled face, and a beard which was more white than black. Although he was old, he was walking vigorously and striding forward with steady steps. Song Qingshu’s heart couldn’t help but jump, ‘This Wu Sangui’s complexion is purple. It is somewhat similar to Yue Buqun who practiced Zixia techniques.’
When he was done bowing, Wei Xiaobao, as the marriage envoy, quickly said, “King Pingxi is exempt from the ceremony.”
Wu Sangui stood up, came to the two of them and smiled, “This must be Lord Wei who has bravely captured Oboi and is famous all over the world? Then this must be Lord Song who defeated the heroes in Mount Tai.”
Wu Sangui came from a military background, and at a glance he noticed that Wei Xiaobao was incapable of even strangling a chicken, and what he just said was just a trick used by officials to apply oil. On the contrary, according to Yang Yizhi’s report last night, he knew that Song Qingshu’s martial arts realm was unfathomable, and he thought that if he couldn’t use this guy for himself in the future, he had to find a way to get rid of him.
Song Qingshu and Wei Xiaobao hurriedly greeted him and said, “This one doesn’t deserve such praise.” Wu Sangui laughed, held the hands of the two, and said, “The two heroes are benevolent and righteous. These paltry rituals are indeed unnecessary. The two heroes will be under the care of this King and his son for the occasion. If you don’t mind, we will treat you like our own family.”
Song Qingshu felt nauseous in his heart. Seeing Wei Xiaobao’s face full of sincerity as he went back and forth with Wu Sangui, he couldn’t help but let out a sigh about his own level of shamelessness, which was nothing compared to the two of them.
