Chapter 16 Domineering Wangye and Pretty Shadow Guard 16
Bai Luoluo is a Sichuan man who is addicted with spicy food. It was a torture for him to be locked up in a temple for a whole year and not be able to eat chili.
And there was still no chili to eat after being rescued by Mao Jiu, which let Bai Luoluo a bit can not stand.
But not to mention this, Mao Jiu listened to everything Mao Jiu said. If he wants the moon in the sky, he will pick it for him, but in the face of the body and the problem of Bai Luoluo, he never make any compromise.
So Bai Luoluo can only endure more than ten days, then just ate chili finally.
After coming back, Bai Luoluo once secretly saw Mao Jiu’s appearance on the court.
That happened to meet a group of ministers quarrel for the rainy season floods. Mao Jiu said in no expression: “Enough.” All the ministers were quiet.
“I’ve made up my mind about this.” Mao Jiu said, “If anyone is not satisfied, find a better way.”
All the other courtiers were silent. The emperor was not as good-tempered as his predecessors, and when he ascended the throne, he left a deep impression on his courtiers.
After the court, Mao Jiu in front of Bai Luoluo seemed to return to his harmless appearance as shadow guard around him. He called out to his master, and all he did seemed to be good for Bai Luoluo, but for some reason, there was a slight uneasiness in his heart.
And it came to this day that when Bai Luoluo went out to look for Mao Jiu, he was stopped by the men of the court at the door.
“Where is he?” ssked Bai Luoluo.
The two court men merely shook their heads.
“You can’t speak?” said Bai Luoluo.
The palace men lowered their heads and continued to shake slowly.
When he saw they were even not willing to speak to himself, he became angry and said, “Are you mute? Do you only know how to shake your heads?”
As soon as he said this, he saw one of the court men raise his head timidly, and opened his mouth slightly to Bai Luoluo.
From her mouth, however, he saw a mangled tongue. Seeing this, Bai Luoluo hurriedly apologized: “I am sorry, I do not know…”
Another of the older members of the court, however, made a supplicatory gesture towards Bai Luoluo, and motioned him to return to the room.
Bai Luoluo also did not want to embarrass them, with a light sigh, he returned to the room.
He was kept in a nice house, where he could get anything he wanted, and there was a courtyard with a stream in the back, where the ice bricks had never been broken in the heat of the summer.
But even so, Bai Luoluo felt a little flustered.
When Mao Jiu went back to the house, what he saw was the Bai Luoluo in restlessness. He did not comfort him, but called people to carry a new good cold food.
There are many kinds of cool things to cool off in this world. The glutinous rice cakes placed in front of Bai Luoluo are very tasty.
Mao Jiu said: “Master, taste it, this is a new royal dessert, you used to like to eat sweet?”
“How much longer are you going to keep me here?” he asked glumly.
Mao Jiu said: “Naturally to wait for master’s hair grow out…”
Bailuo reached out his hand to touch the head and found that the forehead is still naked. He said: “Where is the doctor who cured my brother? When can you find him?”
Mao Jiu sat down in front of Bai Luoluo and said, “I have an idea. In a few days, I should be able to find him.”
After taking a bite of the dessert, his anxiety subsided a little, and he would have muttered a few words, but the tender expression on Mao Jiu’s face made him hold back speaking.
Somehow, being watched like this by Mao Jiu, he always felt taht he is an unreasonable child.
Three months passed, during which Mao Jiu also no longer forced Bai Luoluo to have sex, but his words and actions were quite ambiguous. Bai Luoluo had some resistance at first, but then slowly got accustomed to that.
After March, a little hair appeared on the top of his forehead, and he felt fine and fuzzy. Mao Jiu liked to touch his head sometimes.
Every time Bai Luoluo asked him to stop.
Mao Jiu promised not to do this again, but next time he still did that as he liked.
“I feel Mao Jiu can not be the successor to socialism.” Bai Luoluo said in a low voice.
The system said, “Well, do what you have to do.”
He and the system were both not in a good mood, after all, although they usually dissed each other, but if the final rating of the mission is too low, it’s not good for both of them.
So after a few days, the weather also cooled down.
One night, while Bai Luoluo was sleeping soundly, he was suddenly called up from his bed. He opened his eyes and was startled to see that the one who woke him up was Xin Wang who had taken him away.
Compared with a few months ago, Xin Wang looked a lot more confounded, even his face was still hung with blood, he said in a low voice: “Yuan Feiyan, you idiot!”
As soon as Bai Luoluo awoke from his sleep, he was suddenly clear, “What are you doing here?” He asked.
Xin Wang said, “I don’t fucking want to be here!”
Bai Luoluo said, “You…”
Before he could speak, he was interrupted by Xin Wang, who said, “If you really want to save your brother, come with me!”
“What do you mean?” Said Bai Luoluo.
Xin Wang coughed up blood, “I mean, do you really think Mao Jiu will save your brother?”
The play confused Bai Luoluo. He thought he had a vague sense of something, but he was not entirely sure, “Why should I believe you?” he asked.
Xin Wang: “You can not believe me, if you do not believe me today, tomorrow do not cry to beg me!”
Bai Luoluo thought carefully and felt Mao Jiu was very suspicious, so was Xin Wang. It seemed that there were no one he can trust completely in this world.
Xin Wang saw Bai Luoluo hesitated, he said angrily, “Isn’t your brother good enough for you? Don’t you want to save him? Yuan Feiyan, are you really a wolf-hearted monster?”
This saying was very excessive, Bai Luoluo said: “You say as long as I go with you, you can save my elder brother?”
“That’s right.” said Xin Wang coldly.
“You must give me some proof of what you have said.” said Bai Luoluo.
Xin Wang drew a deep breath and whispered, “I have called the doctor. He is waiting in the imperial garden. When you come with me to the imperial garden, you will know the truth.”
After observing Xin Wang’s expression and feeling that he did not seem to be lying, he hesitated for a moment and followed him out of the room.
All the guards around the house were on the ground, either dead or unconscious.
Xin Wang walked with a slight limp on his right leg. Before Bai Luoluo could ask what had happened, he opened his mouth, “It is what your little lover did.” he said.
“I think you deserve it.” he said slowly.
Xin Wang stared at Bai Luoluo and said, “I deserved it. I should not have let the wolf into my house. If I had known it is going to be like this, I would have fought to save him.”
Well, he was obviously referring to the brother of Bai Luoluo.
The more he listened, the more confused he became. He guessed that there must be some connection between Mao Jiu and Xin Wang, but he couldn’t guess what had happened between them.
Xin Wang was very familiar with the palace, and all the roads he took with him were small ones, and he did not see anyone until he reached the royal garden.
Xin Wang’s face was gloomy along the way, and he coughed up blood from time to time with a dying appearance.
Bai Luoluo followed with Xin Wang and said lightly: “You are so worried about my emperor elder brother today, at that time why did you rise in rebellion?”
“I have never wronged your brother.” said Xin Wang coldly.
“Seriously?” said Bai Luoluo.
Xin Wang sneered in a hoarse voice: “You think your emperor elder brother is a good person?”
Bai Luoluo did not say anything again.
There’s no such thing as a good man to be emperor. To take this position is to give up a lot of other things. Fratricidal rivalries are not uncommon in royal families.
Xin Wang continued, “I’m afraid you don’t know how your brother treated me when we were fighting for the throne.”
His brother was a qualified brother, but he did not seem to be a qualified lover.
“The first thing he did when he took the throne was to trap me.” Xin Wang said slowly, “But even so, I don’t hate him.”
Bai Luoluo listened in silence, but there was no answer.
Xin Wang continued, “It was after he married his wife and had a son that I gave up completely.”
As they got closer to their destination, Xin Wang’s voice grew colder and colder. He said, “He tolerates you because he is your brother, but am I not his brother?”
Bai Luoluo listened to his voice. It seemed that he was going to cry.His heart got to be a bit soft: “You don’t be too sad.”
Xin Wang did not speak, but walked on with him until they reached the entrance to the tunnel where the ice coffin of his brother was placed in the royal garden, “He wants to die? No way! I want him to live in pain.” he said.
Bai Luoluo remembered a matter, he said: “Then you come to save my brother, must I come here, too?”
Xin Wang turned his head to Bai Luoluo and grinned, “Silly brother, you came here to save your beloved brother.” he said, “He loves you so much, and you can’t let him die, can you?”
At this moment, he finally figured out what Xin Wang was going to do, he said to the system: “The wisdom of the ancient people is not that we can guess.”
The system said, “Well, now that I see you, I think of a book.”
“What Book?” said Bai Luoluo.
“The Death of a Young Civil Servant…”
Bai Luoluo: “…”
