“Actually, this prince is pretty curious. As hidden guards of the Yin clan, who exactly was stronger, Yin Xiong or his younger sister? Yin Xiong, force Yin Xue to get out here!” commanded Chu Moxin darkly.
Right after Chu Moxin said that, there was the sound of punching and kicking. When Yao Mowan heard Yin Xue’s muffled groan, her heart clutched in pain.
“Yin Xue, come out!” commanded Yao Mowan worriedly. Hidden guards, without the master’s instructions, would remain hidden and would not show themselves no matter what happened. So if she didn’t command for Yin Xue to show herself, based on Yin Xue’s temperament, there was no way she’d reveal herself no matter how severe of an injury she suffered.
“Master!” When Yin Xue appeared next to Yao Mowan, everyone saw the bloodstain at the corner of her lips.
“Well, it looks like this prince’s Yin Xiong is still a cut above! Yin Xiong, come out.” When Yao Mowan saw the haughty grin on Chu Moxin’s face, she really wanted to walk up and smack him. No matter what, this was still her territory!
A black figure appeared and landed like a phantom next to Chu Moxin. When Yao Mowan looked over, she couldn’t help but sigh in admiration. Yin Xiong had a tall build with sharp, handsome features and was definitely worthy of the reputation of a male beauty. However, that cold expression on his face was even more severe than Yin Xue’s. Those eyes in particular were as calm as the water below an ancient well. Not a trace of expression could be made out.
“This subordinate Yin Xiong kowtows in salute to Master.” Yin Xiong’s voice which resounded with strength caused all the listeners’ hearts to tremble with its vibrations.
“Yes, you did well! This prince will remember your contribution. Once we get back, this prince will definitely have Big Brother reward you!” declared Chu Moxin.
“Chu Moxin, if you have the ability, just fight on your own. Don’t you feel ashamed having Yin Xiong fight on your behalf?” said Ye Junqing in a tone of disdain.
“It is a show of my ability to have Yin Xiong fight for me! Junxiu, this prince is tired.” Chu Moxin snapped back at Ye Junqing, then got up and left the palace without bothering to even glance at Yao Mowan and Ye Junqing again.
“Replying Prince, this subject had already instructed for the servants to tidy up the west wing. It has already been decorated with your favorite jasmine orchids. Prince, this way please.” Huangfu Junxiu walked respectfully to Chu Moxin’s side and opened the door for him.
Even after Chu Moxin had left, Ye Junqing was still frozen in shock due to Huangfu Junxiu’s words.
“Did this prince hear that right? Let the heart be like a withered well, let no more great waves be born, such is the unadorned heart. That kid actually likes jasmine orchids (unadorned core orchid)!?”
“Hasn’t Prince ever heard of making sure to supplement in what you lack?” Yao Mowan sighed lightly. The first battle was a complete defeat. It was all because she had underestimated the enemy, but who would’ve thought that a fifteen year old child would be two-faced to this degree? It seemed that the saying ‘those who were near ink were stained black’ wasn’t unreasonable. Even an idiot would gain some scheming skills if they were by Chu Mobei’s side long enough, so his blood-related brother turning out like this was to be expected.
“Seriously, if this prince had known earlier, this prince wouldn’t have looked at him and wouldn’t have listened to him. This prince should’ve just hacked him down from the outset! Now what do we do?” Ye Junqing looked towards Yao Mowan with a worried expression.
“Now… Yin Xue, you should head back to Phoenix Feather Manor to recover from your injuries. While Chu Moxin is here, there’s no need for you to return.” Yao Mowan looked towards Yin Xue solemnly as she said this.
“Master, it was Yin Xue’s incompetence that made you lose face in front of Chu Moxin.” Yin Xue wiped at the blood at the corner of her lips with a slight frown.
“Do you think that’s why this consort is having you return to Phoenix Feather Manor?” Yao Mowan pulled Yin Xue over as a trace of heartache flashed through her eyes. Yin Xue’s silence indicated what she was thinking.
“In this consort’s heart, you, Yin Xue, are the best hidden guard in the world! Yin Xiong can’t compare at all! This consort knows that even if you weren’t Yin Xiong’s match, you still wouldn’t have gotten injured in such a short amount of time. It was because you think of Yin Xiong as your brother that you reacted a step slow. This consort doesn’t want to judge Yin Xiong in front of you. After all, hidden guards have their own rules. However, this consort wishes to say that in comparison to him, this consort likes you, who is made of flesh and blood and has feelings, much more!” Yao Mowan hugged Yin Xue as she said this sincerely. Radiant light glowed in her eyes.
“Master…” A trace of tears glimmered in Yin Xue’s eyes. She never thought that Yao Mowan would actually know her so well. It was true. If it was in regards to martial arts, hers was not necessarily any inferior to her brother’s. However, at that time, she had been too happy. It had been too long since they had seen each other. She really missed him.
“This consort is having you leave because this consort is worried that Chu Moxin, that brat, would call Yin Xiong out from time to time to provoke a fight. This consort isn’t concerned with winning or losing, but this consort doesn’t want you to be put in such a predicament.” Yao Mowan looked towards Yin Xue meaningfully with a firm smile.
“This subordinate is grateful for Master’s understanding.” Yin Xue cupped her fist in a salute. She was truly moved. Following that, in a flash, she withdrew.
Once Yin Xue left, Ye Junqing peered at Yao Mowan.
“Are you really doing this for Yin Xue’s sake?” Ye Junqing couldn’t help but question Yao Mowan’s motives due to what he knew about her.
“Of course. This consort’s people aren’t monkeys for Chu Moxin to play with.” Yao Mowan leaned over to pick up Fluffy who had been rubbing against her ankle and continued leisurely, “Of course, this consort believes that there’s no way Yan Nansheng will remain unconcerned after seeing Yin Xue return, right?” A crafty light filled Yao Mowan’s eyes as she smiled sweetly.
At breakfast the next day, the moment Yao Mowan walked out of the bedroom, she saw Ye Junqing sitting there with a worried expression.
“Prince sure woke up early.” Yao Mowan leisurely walked over to sit down opposite Ye Junqing, then she glanced over to indicate for Ting Yue to prepare breakfast.
“I didn’t sleep at all,” replied Ye Junqing listlessly as his facial color worsened further.
“Was it because of the flame soul blade?” Yao Mowan had known Ye Junqing for a long time, so she knew about the fact that it was Ye Junqing’s teacher who had personally forged that sword for him. That sword truly meant a lot to him.
“Say, what should this prince do to make him give back the sword?” Ye Junqing looked towards Yao Mowan, his eyes bright with hope.
“No matter what Prince does, there’s no way he’ll return the sword to you.” Yao Mowan directly voiced the cruel reality.
“Then this prince will just have to fight!” Ye Junqing angrily got up. Just as he was about to leave, Yao Mowan calmly spoke again.
“Prince, you shouldn’t be so impatient. Although he wouldn’t give the sword back to you, that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t give it to Mowan.” Yao Mowan’s long eyelashes casted half-moon shadows on her cheeks that concealed the shrewd light within her eyes. Upon hearing this, Ye Junqing sat back down. He had faith like never before in Yao Mowan. This was also because he had no choice but to trust her. After all, he couldn’t very well really go fight!
Right at this time, Chu Moxin strode in boldly and after stretching lazily, sat down right in between Yao Mowan and Ye Junqing.
“You two sure get up early. Junxiu, serve this prince breakfast,” instructed Chu Moxin.
“Prince, the imperial chef we brought has already finished preparing the meal. Why don’t you return to your room to eat?” suggested Huangfu Junxiu carefully.
“What are you afraid of? That they would poison me? Would they dare? The current great Chu doesn’t have the power to fight with us. It’s obvious just from Ye Hongyi is acting. This prince has been here for such a long time but he hasn’t even dared to show his face! It’s obvious that he’s scared of this prince messing with him! If he had any guts at all, he wouldn’t hiding like a turtle! And compared to Ye Hongyi, these two are nothing at all! Hurry and serve me!”
Chu Moxin was like a conceited peacock. Not only did he fan out all his tail feathers, he insisted on shaking them in front of Yao Mowan and Ye Junqing’s face to show them off.
Ye Junqing took a deep breath. He really wanted to refute and just get violent, but he had no choice but to admit that every single world that Chu Moxin said was true. On the other hand, Yao Mowan didn’t seem to be affected by Chu Moxin’s words at all and sat there contentedly. She even seemed to be in a good mood.
