“Okay, I’ll be right there.” Fukang’an stood up and looked at Song Qingshu and said, “I have something to do, so I will leave it to the Honored Elder.”
Song Qingshu indicated that it would be inconvenient to move away his hands, and did not get up to answer, “You can rest assured, Lord. It will take me a few more hours to completely unclog Madame’s meridians.”
“In terms of remuneration, I will inform my subordinates to prepare it for you.” Fukang’an quietly pulled a maid before he left and instructed, “You stay here, and you must prevent him from doing anything suspicious. If something happens, ask the guards outside to come in to help.”
Fukang’an was also in a dilemma about leaving these weak and slender maids here. They wouldn’t be able to do anything if something really happened. But Ma Chunhua was now bare-chested, and it was impossible for him to let the guards stay in the room, so he had to make a compromise.
Seeing that the maid kept nodding her head, Fukang’an opened the door and walked out. He instructed the guard at the door, “Wait here and keep your ears sharp about what’s going on inside. If anyone calls for help, rush in immediately.”
“Hey!” The guard bowed.
Fukang’an looked back at the room, and seeing that no one was paying attention, he quickly pulled up the leader of the guard, and whispered in his ear, “After that physician heals the Madame’s illness, you guys will have to do something. Take those two master and apprentice to a secluded place and…” He didn’t say the rest clearly, but made a gesture of swiping across his neck. The guard leader was startled and nodded in understanding.
Hearing the footsteps of Fukang’an and his subordinates leaving, Song Qingshu said to Ajiu through a voice transmission, “This man is really not a good person. We saved his wife, but instead he retaliates and wants to kill us.”
“Who asked you to rub his wife’s body all over, I’d have done the same if it were me.” Ajiu cursed, as she was still annoyed that he deliberately sprayed mil*k on her face just now.
At the entrance of the Sifang Pavilion, a young man staggered over, stood there and looked at the plaque on the door. After confirming that it was the correct location, he walked straight to the entrance.
The young man had a handsome face, but unfortunately there was a trace of blood on the corner of his mouth at the moment. His face was pale, and he obviously looked seriously injured.
“Stop! Who are you?” The guard at the gate saw that a man was acting suspiciously, and hurriedly drew his sword to guard against him.
“I want…I want to see your Lord Song, I have…I have something to report…to him.” The young man became unsteady, sat down, and said these few words, as if he had used up all his strength.
The two guards looked at each other, not sure where this guy had come from, and hesitated.
Seeing their appearance, the young man realized the situation in his heart. He showed a wry smile, calmed down the True Qi scattered in his body, and said, “You should be able to see that I am about to die now… can a dying man be an assassin? You just have to send the news that Yu of the Red Flower Society is asking to see him, and it’s very urgent.”
“Red Flower Society?” The two guards were shocked, and quickly sent someone in to report.
In Song Qingshu’s bedroom, Li Yuanzhi was chatting with Luo Bing, “Sister Luo, do you think Brother Song can rescue the people from the Red Flower Society?” For some reason, she always had an ominous premonition in her heart.
“Perhaps.” Luo Bing was obviously also a little uneasy.
“Lord Song, Lord Song?” At that moment, the voice of the inner guard came from outside the door.
The two women were startled, and finally Li Yuanzhi lowered her voice and said, “Didn’t I instruct you to not bother me?”
The guard outside the door hesitated for a while, and finally said, “But there is a man from the Red Flower Society who wants to see you at the gate. Judging from his current state, I am afraid he will not live long.”
“What?” Luo Bing suddenly stood up and hurriedly asked, “Did he say his name?”
“He seems to be called Yu or something.” The guard said with uncertainty.
“Ah?” Li Yuanzhi screamed and ran out in a hurry, “Where is he, take me to meet him!”
The guard was stunned for a moment. He didn’t expect to see a young girl with bright eyes suddenly appear from the room of Lord Song.
At that moment, Zhang Kangnian and Zhao Qixian, who had also heard the news, rushed over.
Seeing that Li Yuanzhi was about to rush out, they quickly said, “My aunt, stop! Lord Song specially ordered you not to go out.” Thinking of what Song Qingshu had ordered when he was about to leave, the two of them realized that they had misunderstood his orientation before.
“I don’t care, I’m going to see him!” When Li Yuanzhi heard the news that Yu Yutong was about to die, how could she calm down? She took out her sword and planned to rush out.
“Lord Song has given an order that you are not allowed to step out of this yard.” Zhang Kangnian and Zhao Qixian looked at each other, and silently pulled out the swords on their waist.
“Sister Yuanzhi, since we can’t go out, let them bring Yu Yutong in.” Luo Bing had also walked out by this time, and she said while looking at Zhang Kangnian and Zhao Qixian, “Lord Song won’t even allow this?”
“That’s not true.” Zhang Kangnian and Zhao Qixian returned the swords in their sheaths, turned around and instructed their subordinates, “Bring that person in!”
“Be gentle!” Li Yuanzhi added nervously.
When she saw Yu Yutong on the stretcher, Li Yuanzhi’s tears rolled out and she rushed over, “Brother Yu, what’s the matter with you?”
Zhang Kangnian pushed Zhao Qixian with his shoulder and whispered, “What’s the matter? Isn’t she the woman of Lord Song, why is she crying for another man?”
“How would I know! Do you think that Lord Song will punish us because of this?” Zhao Qixian said depressedly.
“That’s not true…” Zhang Kangnian rolled his eyes, covered his mouth with his hands, and said in Zhao Qixian’s ear, “Have you forgotten the woman who came here last time? She also has a husband. Our Lord Song probably prefers things like this. And now, after the incident happened, the victim has come to the door!”
After seeing Yu Yutong’s dying appearance, Luo Bing was already full of anger in her heart, and hearing them say such nasty things made her feel more and more uncomfortable. So she couldn’t help but lash out, “You all go out!”
“How can we do that?” Zhang Kangnian sneered. He was a smart man and he would never allow an unknown man to be left unsupervised in the room. If Song Qingshu found out that they had allowed such a thing after coming back, they wouldn’t be able to clean up the mess.
Zhao Qixian pulled his friend’s sleeve and whispered, “This man is about to die soon anyways, so what can he do? Just look at the appearance of these two tigresses, there is no need to offend them. They will be conquered by Lord Song sooner or later, and will become his women. So, let’s consider the rainy days.”
“Your mind is truly something else!” Zhang Kangnian became scared at the possibility, and the two of them hurriedly walked out with a flattering smile, then closed the door.
“Brother Yu, don’t scare me, why did you get hurt so badly?” Li Yuanzhi was crying so hard that it seemed as if it was raining.
Yu Yutong obviously didn’t expect Li Yuanzhi to be here, so he said, “Li…Miss Li?”
By this time Luo Bing had calmed down a bit, so she took out a pill from her sleeves and put it into Yu Yutong’s mouth, “This is the Snow Ginseng Yuchan Pill. Last time I heard Song Qingshu say that it has a miraculous effect when it comes to healing.”
“No need, I know that the vitality in my body is exhausted.” Yu Yutong smiled bitterly, but Luo Bing still forced the pill into his mouth.
It was unclear if it was because of the medicinal power of the Snow Ginseng Yuchan Pills, or because of the fact that his lips touched the tip of Luo Bing’s fingers just now, Yu Yutong’s face was flushed red and he coughed violently. (G: This dude is horn*y even when he’s dying.)
“Fourth Sister-in-law, you are indeed here! If I can see you before I go, I, Yu Yutong, have no regrets.” Yu Yutong stared blankly at the contour of Luo Bing’s face, and for a moment he became a little excited.
When Li Yuanzhi on the side heard his words, the blood on her pretty face faded, and she subconsciously took two steps back.
Yu Yutong glanced at her and knew that his actions hurt her very much, but when he thought that he was going to die soon, he just wanted to talk to Luo Bing more before he died. As for other people, he couldn’t care less.
Luo Bing knelt down in front of him, her eyes becoming a little wet, and she said with a choking voice, “Fourteenth Brother, your Fourth Sister-in-law is here! Who was so cruel to hurt you like this? Was it Yu Zhenzi or Zhang Zhaozhong, your sister-in-law will definitely take revenge!”
Yu Yutong shook his head and lightly smiled, “It’s not them, but someone you can’t even imagine.” Then he spoke the name.
Luo Bing was stunned for a moment, and subconsciously shook her head, “How could it be him? Why would the Old Chief want to kill you?”
As the medicinal power in his body gradually took effect, Yu Yutong felt that his spirit was much better, so he quickly gathered his strength and told the ins and outs of the matter.
It turned out that when Yu Yutong heard that the Old Chief and the others were coercing Luo Bing to perform a honey trap against Song Qingshu, and Wen Tailai actually agreed, he was devastated. Unfortunately, the masters from Prince Bao’s palace attacked at that moment and they were defeated without much resistance. Who knew that the masters of the palace didn’t kill them immediately, and captured everyone alive.
After being imprisoned in the palace, Yu Yutong and others were moved to different cells. After wallowing in despair for the first two days, he suddenly came to his senses. He knew that Luo Bing had escaped that day, so she must be wandering alone in the Wulin. So he felt an urge in his heart to escape from the palace and find Luo Bing.
When Yu Yutong started to act, he found that for some reason, the guards around where they were kept were unusually loose, as if they were not being treated as a prisoner at all! So, he started to search around, intending to rescue the Chief and the Old Chief first.
He unknowingly came to a house, and heard two people talking in the room. One of them seemed to be the voice of the Old Chief! Yu Yutong listened quietly with many doubts in his heart, but he didn’t expect that he would discover such a big secret.
Yu Wanting had said to them before, that forty years ago, Qian Zhenhuan, his childhood sweetheart, was forcefully taken away by Prince Yong and then gave birth to Hongli. After Yu Wanting knew that Hongli had the blood of Han people, he decided to abandon his personal hatred. He brought the Red Flower Society to cooperate with Hongli and help him become the emperor of the Qing Dynasty, which would bring a better life to the Han people all over the world.
However, Yu Yutong heard another version of that history under the window. It turned out that Qian Zhenhuan was not forcefully taken away by Prince Yong at all, but it was Yu Wanting who orchestrated various coincidences and deliberately let her meet Prince Yong. What’s more, before the prince arrived, she was already pregnant with Yu Wanting’s flesh and blood, that is, the current Prince Bao—Hongli!
