Chapter 301: Troubles of the inner palace

Although he already had skin-to-skin contact with her in the past, for the first two times Zhou Zhiruo was either forced or half-pushed. Song Qingshu didn’t expect Zhou Zhiruo to be so cooperative this time, to respond to his kiss, to separate her legs, to lift her dainty willow waist…

Song Qingshu was overjoyed and fought fiercely until the sky turned slightly bright before falling asleep with his arms around Zhou Zhiruo’s fair jade-like body.

When Song Qingshu slowly woke up, he subconsciously touched his side, but was surprised to find that the place was empty. His mind suddenly mind cleared up, only to find that the beautiful woman wasn’t there.

“Leaving every time you’re done. Even friends with benefits are not so distant.” Song Qingshu helplessly pinched the center of his brows. When he got up from the bed, he suddenly saw a jade hairpin nailed to the bed with a note on it.

[I’m going back to Emei, I need to think things through in peace.]

Looking at the beautiful handwriting on the note, Song Qingshu’s mouth turned up, and he showed a smug smile, while carefully putting the jade hairpin and the note into his sleeves.

“Oh, I forgot about Youyou!” Suddenly Song Qingshu slapped his forehead, thinking that Xia Qingqing was still sleeping next door, probably worried and frightened all night, so he felt guilty and ran over in a hurry.

“Yo, are you finally willing to come out of that tender embrace?”

When Song Qingshu pushed the door and entered, he found that Dongfang Muxue was also in the room, looking at him with contempt, and her tone was full of sarcasm.

“Uh, why are you here?” Song Qingshu was taken aback, and looked around, only to see Xia Qingqing fully dressed, sitting opposite Dongfang Muxue, looking at him in surprise.

“Why are you still wearing that wretched mask?” Dongfang Muxue frowned, looking at Song Qingshu with rather unfriendly gaze.

“I am just worried about being seen by people in the palace!” Song Qingshu was about to tear off the mask, and suddenly pointed at Xia Qingqing hesitantly, “You already told her?” He was worried that Xia Qingqing would be psychologically shaken if he suddenly pulled off the mask. If there was no prior stimulation, great sorrow and great joy could hurt the mind.

“Brother Song, is it really you?” Xia Qingqing just longingly looked at him, as if crystal clear liquid was about to drip out of her eyes.

Song Qingshu took off his mask and looked at her with pity, “Youyou, it’s really me.”

“Brother Song!” Wrapped in a cloud of fragrant wind, Xia Qingqing threw herself into Song Qingshu’s arms, hugged him tightly, and muttered to herself, “I thought I would never see you again…you don’t know how much I hated myself when I heard the news of your death! I know that if I hadn’t decided to take revenge, and if I wouldn’t have been conferred the title of Concubine Ping by Kangxi, you wouldn’t have taken the risk to assassinate him…”

Seeing that Xia Qingqing had misunderstood his intentions, Song Qingshu hesitated for a moment, but finally did not explain. He just gently patted her on the back, and softly said, “I promised you before, that I would definitely help you take revenge, you should believe it now, right?” .”

“I believe it, I believe it!” Xia Qingqing couldn’t hold back her tears, and hugged her beloved even tighter.

Seeing such a lovely situation, Dongfang Muxue couldn’t help but cringe, and hurried to the table to pour a cup of tea for herself.

“Brother Song, I want you to promise me one last thing.” Xia Qingqing raised her head and looked at Song Qingshu with tears in her eyes.

“Whatever I can do, I will promise.”

Although he could vaguely feel Xia Qingqing’s affection for him before, but because she wholeheartedly wanted to avenge Yuan Chengzhi, Song Qingshu was still not sure whether she really had any affection for him. It was not until this moment that he fully felt that her heart completely belonged to him.

“You killed Kangxi, the chief culprit, for me, and that counts as… avenging Big Brother Yuan. I’m already very satisfied. I don’t need you to kill Dongfang Bubai anymore. You must promise me!” Xia Qingqing said in a single breath. She looked at Song Qingshu anxiously, as if she was afraid that he would not agree.


Dongfang Muxue, who had just taken a sip of her tea and couldn’t help but spit it out from her mouth, and stared at Song Qingshu with a strange expression.

Song Qingshu guiltily avoided her gaze, and looked at Xia Qingqing curiously, “Why?”

“Dongfang Bubai’s martial arts is so high, I don’t want you to take any more risks.” Xia Qingqing tightly bit her lower lip and looked at him with burning eyes.

“Are you…really willing to do that?” Song Qingshu sighed.

Xia Qingqing pressed her face tightly against Song Qingshu’s chest, “I have already lost Big Brother Yuan, and I don’t want to lose you again. When I knew that you failed to assassinate Kangxi and died, I prayed more than a million times. If I got another chance, I would definitely give up on revenge, I just hope that I can go boating with you and spend the rest of our lives together.”

Song Qingshu felt a pain in his heart when he heard her speak. He couldn’t imagine how much pressure she had to endure during this time, so he quickly reached out and hugged her again.

“Since the heavens has given me another chance, I will naturally not miss it again.”

When Xia Qingqing finished saying all this, she suddenly felt a lot more relaxed in her heart. She gave up on her hatred and regained her love. It felt really good.

“Okay, I promise you.” Song Qingshu said in a deep voice, while smelling the fragrance of her beautiful hair. 

What a joke! Dongfang Bubai was standing right in front of them!

Fortunately, Xia Qingqing suggested that it would be best to give up, otherwise he would have a headache in the future on how to resolve the hatred between the two women.

“Ahem!” Dongfang Muxue never expected that she would be involved in the two lovers affairs, and gave Song Qingshu a hard look, “Little lady, did you just give yourself to him?”

Xia Qingqing used to be a clever and eccentric girl, and she had gradually calmed down. When she heard Dongfang Muxue’s joke, she didn’t get angry. Instead, she raised her chin and angrily said, “I am willing!”

“But do you know that he already has a wife? She is the leader of the Emei Sect. And the reason why he came so late just now is probably because he got lost in Leader Zhou’s gentle garden.” Looking at the two of them hugging each other so intimately, Dongfang Muxue exposed all this without knowing why.

Xia Qingqing really smelled the fragrance of another woman on Song Qingshu’s body, and she felt a little sour in her heart. However, she had always been very conscious about her status as a widow, and never thought of becoming Song Qingshu’s wife in an open and honest manner.

After thinking about all that, Xia Qingqing put her hands around Song Qingshu’s neck, and said with a faint smile, “It doesn’t matter if he has a wife, I am willing to be his lover in secret, as long as he doesn’t despise me.” Then she looked at Song Qingshu with eyes full of affection.

“I really regret coming to save you.” Dongfang Muxue was momentarily at a loss for words, and couldn’t help but let out a cold snort.

Xia Qingqing rolled her eyes and flashed a sly look, “The three of us joined forces to attack Kangxi before, one was Brother Song’s real wife, and the other was his…his lover, so what are you?”

Dongfang Muxue blushed slightly, and snorted, “It’s just a friend.”

“Friend?” Xia Qingqing smiled ambiguously, “You should be a confidante, Brother Song has always been very popular with women.”

Hearing the two women confronting each other, Song Qingshu finally couldn’t take it anymore. He was worried that Xia Qingqing would make Dongfang Muxue angry, and Dongfang Muxue would directly reveal her identity as Dongfang Bubai. Xia Qingqing had just decided to give up on seeking revenge, but it would be a whole another matter if the person who had killed her husband was standing in front of her like this.

Song Qingshu was enjoying Xia Qingqing’s meek cat-like appearance, so he naturally didn’t want to have any accidents and spoil the cooked rice.

“Okay, since everyone is our own, let’s discuss what to do in the palace in the future.”

“Who is on your own.” Dongfang Muxue poohed disdainfully.

“This woman is so fierce, who is she?” Xia Qingqing gave Dongfang Muxue a dissatisfied look, but suddenly realized that she too used to be like this before, so she couldn’t help but smile knowingly.

“She can be regarded as my partner, Miss Xue.” Song Qingshu sweated bullets and winked at Dongfang Muxue, fearing that she would introduce herself as Dongfang Bubai.

By this point, Dongfang Muxue naturally knew that Xia Qingqing was the widow of Yuan Chengzhi who she had killed in the past. She hesitated for a moment, and also didn’t want to cause any troubles, so she also agreed with Song Qingshu’s introduction.

“Don’t you need to invite sister Zhou to discuss it together?” Thinking of Song Qingshu and Zhou Zhiruo staying in the room before, Xia Qingqing inevitably felt a little sour again, but the other party was Song Qingshu’s real wife, and when thinking of her relationship with Song Qingshu, she felt a little uneasy .

“She… has already returned to Emei.” Song Qingshu sighed.

“Is that so…” For some reason, Xia Qingqing let out a sigh of relief.

“Tsk tsk tsk, you let even cooked ducks fly, you are really stupid.” Dongfang Muxue sneered.

Song Qingshu didn’t understand why Dongfang Muxue would match him and Zhou Zhiruo like that, and gave her a strange look, but didn’t refute.

“Let’s discuss what to do in the future.” Xia Qingqing was determined to side with Song Qingshu.

Song Qingshu glanced at her gratefully, he didn’t expect Xia Qingqing to be so caring when she was gentle.

“What else can I do? Didn’t you, ‘Big Brother Song’, spend a lot of time in the palace? When I found you, you were pressing the Concubine Tong’s head to have her… to have  her do that.” Dongfang Muxue’s face turned red. Although as Dongfang Bubai, she had played with many women in the Sun Moon Holy Cult, but she was also a woman after all, and the scene she had witnessed before still shocked her a lot.

Only then did Xia Qingqing remember that during this period of time, she had deliberately asked the little eunuchs and maids to inquire about Kangxi’s news, as she was preparing to take revenge. Naturally, she knew that during this period of time, Kangxi only stayed with Concubine Tong every day to have fun, and only favored one person, which made the rest of the harem complain.

“That’s right, go find Concubine Tong by yourself.” Xia Qingqing was also a little angry.

“That’s because I had lost my mind for a while, so please let me go!” Song Qingshu begged for mercy, as his headache further intensified.

“Hmph, there’s also that Concubine Hui who came back from Shengjing with us.” Xia Qingqing said with a strange expression when thinking of that pitiful young woman.

“How dare I touch her! Xu Zheng, Fukang’an, Hongli and even Kangxi… any man who has ever touched her didn’t die a good death.” Song Qingshu said with a wry smile.

“You basta*d, she is so pitiful, yet you still talk about her like that!” Xia Qingqing suddenly scolded.

“Luck is always on the side of the strong, so what is there to be afraid of a mere woman? I’ll tie her up at night, and you can go have a good time. I want to see what can happen to you with me here!” Dongfang Muxue said coldly, releasing a sense of majesty that belonged to the former Cult Master.

“Let’s not talk about that for now.” Song Qingshu smiled in embarrassment.

“How can we not talk about this? You live in the imperial palace, so you can’t escape sleeping with the concubines. In addition to that little Concubine Tong in the palace, there is also Empress Tong. Among the noble concubines, there is Concubine Shi, Concubine Mi, Concubine Yi… all of them are one-of-a-kind beauties, what are you going to do about them?” Xia Qingqing pouted, and waited for Song Qingshu’s answer.
