Because the picture in his mind was too unsuitable for children, Yu Zhenzi’s breathing soon became heavy, and suddenly alarmed Su Quan inside, “Who?”
Yu Zhenzi was startled, and hurriedly backed away, raised the horse-tail whisk to knock down the hidden weapon shooting towards him like a bullet, and seeing Su Quan rushing out, he quickly spoke up, “Heavens, Madame Hong is very skilled!”
“So, you’re the creep!” Yu Zhenzi kept saying that he wanted to take Su Quan back to Hongli, so Su Quan naturally didn’t bother to be respectful towards him.
Yu Zhenzi’s smile froze. He had thought that the other party would at least pretend to be courteous towards him, but he didn’t expect that she would be so ruthless with her words, and stood there awkwardly for a moment.
“You came here so late at night, do you want capture me and take me back to Shengjing?” Su Quan leaned sideways and spoke with a teasing tone, while secretly guarding against the other party’s sudden attack.
Glancing at Song Qingshu behind her, Yu Zhenzi said with a sneer, “Madame, I was joking. I was just following orders in the afternoon. Please forgive me…”
Su Quan interrupted impatiently, “If you’re done, please leave.”
Yu Zhenzi didn’t expect Su Quan, who always had a smile on her face, to speak so rudely. His expression turned a little ugly, and he snorted, “I have something to discuss with Master Song.”
“Oh, come in then.” After Song Qingshu finished speaking, he went back to the room first, leaving Su Quan staring at his back in a daze.
“Master Song, you have also seen the situation this afternoon…” Yu Zhenzi stopped talking, and looked at Su Quan with a hesitant expression.
Su Quan’s situation was now like someone stepping on a tightrope, so naturally she won’t be so ‘sensible’ to leave, and Song Qingshu also said, “If you have anything to say, just say it, my sister is not an outsider.”
Yu Zhenzi thought to himself, ‘She is obviously Hong Antong’s wife, so when did she become yours, and besides, the topic of this conversation is about her, so it is naturally inconvenient for her to hear it.’
Seeing the expressions of the three people in the room waiting for him to continue, Yu Zhenzi thought that asking the Mystic Dragon Cult to hand over Su Quan was just a cover anyway, so it wouldn’t really matter if she heard it, “Master Song, the Mystic Dragon Cult has always been rebellious. We have already found out that Hong Antong has taken refuge under Alibuge of Mongolia. You and I are both officials of the Qing Dynasty. This is a great opportunity to be loyal to the court and eradicate the Mystic Dragon Cult. I also hope that Master Song will lend a helping hand in this matter.”
“Being loyal to the imperial court?” Song Qingshu smiled noncommittally, “Prince Bao has many soldiers, and his army is overwhelming, why do you need the help of someone like me?”
“Master Song is joking.” Yu Zhenzi secretly sweated, “Although this ones martial arts is not worth mentioning when compared with you, but I have the confidence that I can deal with Hong Antong. However, this time the Mongols and Khitans has sent many of their masters. If I really fight with them… my two fists are no match for four.”
“I don’t believe that Prince Bao’s intelligence network did not know about the situation of the Mongol and Khitan masters. Besides, the Taoist has excellent movement skills. If you are careful and guard against them, even if those people join forces, they wont be able to catch you.” Song Qingshu said.
Yu Zhenzi smiled wryly and said, “At first, this one also didn’t worry about it. If I dared to come into the tiger’s lair alone, I have all the confidence to return successfully. It’s a pity that I didn’t expect the Western Poison Ouyang Feng to be on the island…”
Song Qingshu looked at him with a faux-smile, “The Taoist wants me to help you, and hand over my dear sister?” As soon as he finished speaking, he stretched out his arm and put it around Su Quan’s slender waist.
Su Quan was caught unprepared and fell into his arms. At the moment, she was not sure what was going on with Song Qingshu, so she didn’t dare to struggle.
Yu Zhenzi glanced over and saw Su Quan lying obediently in Song Qingshu’s arms, as two blushes appeared on her delicate cheeks, making her even more charming, and he thought to himself, ‘So Hong Antong is really wearing a green hat… and by the looks of these two, if I only use the court to suppress him, I am afraid that the little fox Song Qingshu will not agree…’ (G: For those who don’t know, “to wear a green hat” means to be ntr’ed.)
Suddenly thinking of a way, Yu Zhenzi continued, “Master Song has misunderstood. This is a matter that is extremely confidential, but Master Song is one of our own, and Madame Hong… is Master Song’s woman, so she is also one of our own, therefore, telling her would be fine too.”
Su Quan shuddered when she heard Yu Zhenzi say that she was Song Qingshu’s woman, but as she urgently wanted to hear the secret, she gave up on opening her mouth to refute.
Fang Yi, who was at the side, looked at the intimacy between the two, and felt jealous in her heart.
“To tell the truth, my lord, the Prince had announced that as long as the Mystic Dragon Cult handed over the Cult Master’s wife, he would immediately withdraw his troops. But, in fact, it was just a cover.” After Yu Zhenzi finished speaking, he paid close attention to the expressions of the two people. Sure enough, Su Quan’s expression changed when she heard it. On the other hand, Song Qingshu remained expressionless, and he could not see any clues.
“Sister, do you want to hear the rest of it?” Song Qingshu looked at Su Quan in his arms with a smile.
Su Quan’s face turned red, and she hummed, but her heart was full of surprises, ‘He doesn’t look like he had been bewitched at all.’
“Since my dear sister wants to hear it, for her sake, I will help you while on the island.” Song Qingshu said lightly.
“Thank you, Master Song!” Yu Zhenzi was overjoyed, and quickly explained, “The Prince already expected that the Mystic Dragon Cult would not agree to hand over Madame Hong, and he never thought that he would really be able to take Madame Hong without a fight.”
“Prince Bao was quite sure of that. Originally, all the members of the Mystic Dragon Cult were united and of one mind. Facing such an opponent, the Shengjing army which is not good at naval warfare, had not certainty of winning. But after he made a move, it turned out that the top leaders of the Mystic Dragon Cult seemed to have their own agendas, and the people at the bottom also panicked.”
Su Quan snorted coldly, but she let go of a huge worry in her heart. As long as the real target of the enemy was not her, the rest would be quite easy. She only hated the Black Dragon Envoy’s short-sightedness, and Hong Antong’s inability to see what was really going on. What’s more, he also had the plan to sacrifice her!
Yu Zhenzi smiled and remained silent. He was not afraid to tell the other party all this, since Prince Bao’s move was originally an open secret, so even if the Mystic Dragon Cult understood it, it wouldn’t matter. People’s hearts were often the most unpredictable, and there were always people who had a weak mentality. After the recent period of constant stress, the morale of the people on the island had almost collapsed.
“I will take my leave now, so as not to be noticed by those who are interested.” Yu Zhenzi gave a slight salute, and left straight away.
“Song Qingshu, are you really bewitched or just acting?” As soon as Yu Zhenzi left, Su Quan broke free from Song Qingshu’s embrace, stared at him nervously, and a strange light appeared in her eyes again.
“Dear sister, what do you think?” Song Qingshu’s pupils suddenly became pitch black.
A trace of confusion flashed across Su Quan’s face, and she suddenly smiled sweetly, “Of course you are still my good brother.”
“Heh, my shoulders are a little sore, give me a massage.” Song Qingshu patted on his shoulder as a gesture.
“Okay.” Su Quan knelt down on the bed obediently, and gently massaged his shoulder for him.
Fang Yi stared at all this dumbfounded, and exclaimed in surprise, “Brother Song, you haven’t been…”
“Shhhsh!” Song Qingshu made a silent gesture, “Don’t say it.”
When Su Quan used the Song Qingshu the Bewitchment Art, he had already noticed it, but he did nothing. Firstly, because he hadn’t yet figured out the depth of Su Quan’s plans. Secondly, it was extremely dangerous to compete in mental power. If one was not being careful, anyone could end up becoming a mindless fool.
Song Qingshu didn’t want that kind of result, so he pretended to be under her control. After staying together for a while, Song Qingshu had already figured out the principle behind Su Quan’s Bewitchment Art, which took advantage of the victims loss of concentration to control them. So now, he decided to control her instead.
“You big bad guy actually made me so worried.” Fang Yi couldn’t help but hug him and kept beating his chest.
Seeing that she was crying like a flower in rain, Song Qingshu couldn’t help but bow his head to kiss her.
After Fang Yi was taken aback for a moment, she slowly closed her eyes. Only her slightly trembling eyelashes reflected her current emotional state.
“There is a legend that tears taste sweet when people are happy, and bitter when people are sad. It seems that you are mostly happy now.” Song Qingshu didn’t kiss her luscious lips, but stretched out the tip of his tongue to lick the teardrops on her rosy cheeks.
“Tears are obviously salty.” Fang Yi finally smiled through her tears, and quickly reached out to wipe the tears on her face.
The two chatted for a while, and Fang Yi suddenly sat up straight, “Brother Song, I have to do something!”
