Chapter 112 (END)
The big feast for the guests were still at the Prime Minister’s main hall like last time, the difference was that the room was lacking the red color of happiness’ character and the guests who were making a lot of noises. There were three men who had these talented characteristics, and were sitting on the round table.
Dan Yu Lan slightly cupped his hands to greet and smilingly said: “Congratulations, I did not have the chance to say it last time.” He actually kind of disturbed the other people’s wedding reception the first time around, even though it was the Emperor’s order, he still felt sorry for Lou Xi Yan.
Su Ling slightly cupped his hands to greet also, and expressed his apology.
Lou Xi Yan smiled calmly and said: “Many thanks. It is not too late to drink this wedding wine now either.”
The servants stepped forward to pour the wine for them, the gingerly looking liquid slowly came out, a sweet alcohol fragrant was wafting in the room. Still not drinking, Su Ling already praised in a low voice: “Chenlu (morning dew) hua (flower) diao (the name of the wine)! Good wine!”
Lou Xi Yan smiled: “I have heard it earlier that General Su has quite an insight towards wine, as expected, it is a fully justified reputation.”
Picking up the wine cup, Su Ling answered unconcernedly: “I am only good with wine.”
Comparing to Su Ling’s forthrightness, Dan Yu Lan and Lou Xi Yan seemed to be more refined, the wine entered their throats tasting it delicately, it was extremely elegant.
Looking one glance at the empty seat next to Lou Xi Yan’s master seat, Dan Yu Lan asked curiously: “Is there another noble guest who is coming?” Able to make Lou Xi Yan to consider this visitor as a high person, could it be…..?
“Can Zhen be regarded as a noble guest or not?” Dan Yu Lan was still guessing, a clear, bright and powerful man’s voice came through from the outside room. The person came with a light and convenient clothing on his body and following by his side was a trace of elegant and beautiful image of a woman. The two people stepped to enter the inside room, so the three people got up immediately to welcome them, and salute with a half kneeling body: “Pay respect to the Emperor, Imperial concubine Qing.”
With a delighted smile on his face, it looked like Yan Hong Tian’s mood was very good, waving his hand, Yan Hong Tian smilingly said: “You may rise, since it is Prime Minister’s wedding feast today, this unnecessary and complicated greetings can be excused, ok.”
Qing Feng’s gaze swept through the spacious main hall, and did not find Zhuo Qing’s shadow, looking towards Lou Xi Yan, Qing Feng naturally asked: “Brother in law (again the actual word is using jiefu), where is my elder sister?” (I love it when QF calls LXY jiefu instead of PM Lou because it’s a lot more intimate and the appellation actually puts LXY higher than YHT because he’s married to QF’s elder sister. Hahaha…).
Brother in law?! Yan Hong Tian lightly knitted his eyebrows, this brother in law’s calling was truly close and dear, she seemed to forget her own status, she called Xi Yan brother in law, so what must he address Xi Yan? (Of course, jiefu also. Hehehehe).
Lou Xi Yan stared blankly also, but he answered immediately: “She is in the inside room with Qing Mo.”
Mo-er was also here?! Qing Feng’s face could hardly conceal her impatient feeling, Lou Xi Yan said to the servant who was by his side: “Someone comes, send Imperial concubine Qing to Lan Yue building.”
Qing Feng showed a grateful smile to Lou Xi Yan, and followed the servant immediately to the rear courtyard.
After Qing Feng had left, there were only several men in the main hall, the atmosphere became more relaxed and unrestrained.
The wine fragrant was wafting through the air in the inside room, after Yan Hong Tian smelled it lightly, he pursed his eyebrows dissatisfiedly and immediately waved his hand lightly. Several men who were dressing as Imperial bodyguards and were outside the room, came in with 7-8 jugs of wine on their hands, Yan Hong Tian laughed heartily and said: Today is a big joyful day, Zhen especially brings the chennian (old) xi (creek) feng (wind) (again a type of wine), one can not go home until he is drunk tonight.”
Chennian xi feng? Su Ling’s eyes were bright, and he was eager to give it a try, Lou Xi Yan and Dan Yu Lan’s complexions were actually stiff, and could only look one glance at each other and force a smile. Chennian xi feng was really a rare and excellent wine, but it was because of this reputation was scattered far away, it was more because of its strength. If some people did not have any capacity for the wine, they could sleep for the entire night with only one cup, what was more with that many jugs of wine, it was impossible not to get drunk tonight!
The inner door of the Lan Yue building was closed tightly, Gu Yun was half leaning on the back of Zhuo Qing’s chair, her delicate small body seemed to look thinner and weaker at this moment. Lifting the sleeve of her garment highly, and exposing her white and slender arm, she was somewhat shock looking that there was a big black bluish bruise on her arm. Zhuo Qing was rubbing the medicine oil carefully, while she was scolding with a cold voice: “This Su Ling is really an impertinent husband, his beating hand is too heavy, ok!” However, Yun was still a woman, he was unexpectedly beat her down like this. She estimated that this bruise would not go away for half a month, luckily, there was no injury to the bone!
Gu Yun closed her eyes slightly, and answered lazily: “He is not too much better than me either!”
Actually, that day they were so angry, and the chariot was also pitch dark, they could not see anything clearly. This being the case, how could they not have any injury with these kind of movements? Su Ling was also kicked by her several times, the bruise on his body could not be less than hers either!
These two people could not interact nicely? Zhuo Qing helplessly sighed and said: “How about you move to live with me here for a time period, then we can talk again, ok.”
Gu Yun shook her head immediately: “You are newlyweds, who wants to be a light bulb (unwanted third guest) ah! Moreover, I already have some news about the golden bagua.” She hoped to be able to find a way to return as soon as possible, since she had been in this different era for more than half a year, she was still not used to it.
Zhuo Qing asked but she did not have any strong feeling about it: “What news?”
Gu Yun sat up her body, put down the sleeve of her garment slowly, and then explained: “I have looked at the family history of the Su’s family, the golden bagua plate has been passed on to the Su family clan’s badge for many years. The Su’s family believes that it can bless, protect and guard the Su clan’s descendants. Under a normal circumstances, the clan badge is left in the Su family’s tomb, when they offer sacrifices to the ancestors every year, the clan elder and the Su clan’s eldest son will ask to produce the clan’s badge together, and to worship and offer the sacrificial offering from the descendants. But I still do not know where the Su family’s tomb is located at the moment, where is the clan’s badge is left in the tomb after all? If I want to know these things, I still have to get them from Su Ling!” In order to be able to return, it would still be necessary that she stayed at the General’s manor, even though Su Ling really made people to loathe him!
Yun’s certainty in this matter, it would be difficult for her to do anything, Zhuo Qing did not try to persuade her, she only said briefly: “Good, but you must be careful, that bagua plate is very strange, if you have any news, you have to inform me, do not act by yourselves.”
“I know……” Gu Yun stopped speaking all of a sudden, and looked towards the outside door cautiously.
Soon after, there was a male sound came through from the outside door: “Madam, Imperial concubine Qing is here.”
Imperial concubine Qing? Zhuo Qing and Gu Yun looked one glance at each other, then said in a low voice: “It is Qing Feng.”
Gu Yun nodded her head lightly and understandably, Zhuo Qing went to open the door, Gu Yun turned around to take the medicine oil that was on the table and put it into her sleeve, then she walked to the front of the window and pushed open the closed window.
Opening the door to the room, Qing Feng was standing outside the door, looking at Zhuo Qing, she immediately smiled and called out; “Elder sister.”
Zhuo Qing waved her hand towards the servant who was standing by the side, pulled Qing Feng’s hand and said: “Quickly come in, ok.”
“Mo-er!” Looking clearly at Gu Yun who was inside the room, Qing Feng advanced forward to meet with her excitingly, and she was holding her hand tightly and unexpectedly choking with emotion and speechless for a moment. Gu Yun was somewhat awkward, but she did not remove her hand either, and could only stay there rigidly.
Qing Feng lightly caressed Gu Yun’s face that was more and more thin, and she asked regretfully: “Mo-er, you lose weight! Is Su Ling bullying you or not?!”
Her cheek that was being stroked like this made Gu Yun felt very awkward, slightly withdrawing for a step, Gu Yun answered: “Nobody is bullying me.” It would be good if she did not bully the other people.
Qing Feng’s hand was stiff, was her little sister already not familiar with her like this? Was she not used with her touch? Slowly releasing her hand, her heart was somewhat in pain, but Qing Feng still continued to ask attentively: “How was your life for this past half a year?”
Gu Yun could see clearly that Qing Feng’s eyes were in pain, but for her, this woman who was in front of her was a stranger whom she just met for the first time so she could not show any deep emotion. Lightly coughing, Gu Yun answered concisely: “I am very good.”
“Mo-er, what is wrong with you?” Qing Feng was somewhat confused, the woman who was in front of her showed courtesy but estranged. Her eyes expressed a firm, proud and aloof radiance, this was not her usual warm and intimate expressions, her timid but lovable little sister?! Getting panic in her mind, Qing Feng urgently said: “Did you also lose your memory because of that darn crazy concoction?”
Zhuo Qing lightly knitted her eyebrows, and watched laughingly to see what Gu Yun’s answer, if she said that she also lost her memory, that would be too fake.
“I……” Gu Yun stared blankly, this was an irresponsible excuse, only Qing, this lazy woman would think about this. Glaring firmly at Zhuo Qing who was rejoicing in her misfortune, Gu Yun returned to look at Qing Feng’s worry eyes, then she said smilingly: “I am alright, it is just that it has been a long time that we have seen each other, so I am somewhat excited, and do not know what to say.”
Excited? Zhuo Qing wanted to spurt out a laughing voice, but she obstructed it from Qing Feng, and could only swallowed it down forcibly. Feeling Gu Yun’s sharp fierce eyes, Zhuo Qing stepped forward one step, and helped Qing Feng to sit on the chair. Then she looked for another topic to say: “You should sit down first, ok, you have to be careful for the first three months.”
Qing Feng’s heart felt a burst of sting, Mo-er and elder sister’s interactions showed that they were very familiar with each other, it looked like her little sister was only estranged with her. Forget it, little sister was relatively closed with elder sister since young, elder sister was the one who took care of her, she should feel relieved.
Caressing her bulging abdomen slightly, Qing Feng answered smilingly and softly: “It is already more than four months.”
More than four months? Very quick, this could be regarded that she had a relationship with Yan Hong Tian right after she was delivered to enter the Imperial palace.
Having been in touch with Qing Feng for several times, she was her cherish close relative in Zhuo Qing’s heart, this woman who had a strong and stubborn characters, also with her misfortune fate.
Remembering that she was staying in the Imperial palace, Zhuo Qing asked anxiously: “When I asked you to steal the seal from the Empress Dowager last time, did Yan Hong Tian ever find out?”
Qing Feng’s expression was cold, she said indifferently and sneeringly: I did not know, maybe. Actually in his mind, he did not want to exploit your anxious heart to rescue Lou Xi Yan, and to accomplish his own goal. But everything was what he needed and wanted. There was no different whether he found out or not!”
Her grudging and hatred words made Zhuo Qing and Gu Yun unable to refrain from feeling sorry for her, the two of them were looking at each other for one glance, and could only choose to be silent in the end. Because they did not know what kind of words that they could use to comfort Qing Feng, they were not Qing Ling and Qing Mo. They did not understand the suffering of the Qing’s family, they had not lived in that big Imperial palace either, so they did not understand the hardship and miserable life that she had.
The three people had different worries in their minds, the inner room sank into quietness, Qing Feng suddenly recovered, and said smilingly: “Today is your big happy day, do not speak this matter that can dampen one’s spirit, I will help you to roll your hair up just like the style that you like the most before, ok.”
Pushing her shoulder, Zhuo Qing shook her head and said smilingly: “No need to trouble you.” There was not many guests at the feast, there was no need to be grand like that, she did not like it either.
Lightly holding Zhuo Qing’s hand, Qing Feng said insistently: “No trouble at all.”
Pulling Zhuo Qing to sit down in front of the dressing table, Qing Feng took care her fine black hair gently, just liked when they were still at home, they combed each other’s hair frequently, they might not be able to go back to that period of time anymore. She was gathering with them now, and it was not easy either ah: “Elder sister, Mo-er. The fact will not change that we are going to stay in Qiong Yue, so you must be happy, do you understand? Your happiness is exactly my biggest happiness.” Qing Feng bound the hair together attentively and concentratedly, her every movement was gentle. Zhuo Qing could only receive her affection and love, even though she was not her own elder sister, and she did not have that beautiful memories about them together, but she felt tenderness towards Qing Feng. Her speech about happiness and despair, made Zhuo Qing’s heart ached, turning her head around, holding Qing Feng’s hand, and softly putting her hand on her own abdomen, she advised softly: “Feng, you must also let yourselves to be happy, maybe Yan Hong Tian will make you disappointed, but you already have a baby. For him, you must also be happy, ok?”
“En.” Qing Feng’s hand was striking softly on her own abdomen that was protruding slightly, her face finally showed a gentle and beautiful smile. Yes ah, she still had them and a baby who was inside her abdomen.
After drinking several cups of the strong alcoholic drinks, Yan Hong Tian suddenly looked towards Lou Xi Yan and asked: “Xi Yan, is your health a little better? Or do you want to request several Imperial physicians to look at you again?”
Only thinking about his health now?! Lou Xi Yan forced a smile secretly, if he (YHT) was really concerned about him, he (YHT) would not make him (LXY) to drink this strong wine like this. Fully aware that Yan Hong Tian was mocking him deliberately, Lou Xi Yan put down the wine cup, he answered calmly and unhurriedly: “Many thanks to the Emperor’s concern, it is already much better.”
His thoracic cavity felt like it was set on fire and he felt unwell, if he drank the wine like this again, he would collapse for sure! Dan Yu Lan also put down his wine cup hurriedly, and looked for a topic to say casually: “This time, thanks to Madam Lou’s cleverness, we did not give Bai Yi any opportunity to take advantage of the situation.”
Lou Xi Yan watched at Dan Yu Lan’s words that were somewhat breathing heavily, he (LXY) only knew that he (DYL) was also choking from this wine. Pouring a cup of tea for Dan Yu Lan, Lou Xi Yan continued to answer his (DYL) topic: “When she left the prison on that day, she gave me a piece of paper that said Bai Yi was trying to incite disharmony and wish to frame Su Ling. When she planned to beat him at his own game, I was still worry that she would act blindly without thinking. Luckily, Mo Bai went to the prison secretly during the night and told me the details of her plan. I think with the support from General Su, they should be able to succeed.”
Lou Xi Yan and Dan Yu Lan were already drinking their tea desperately, Yan Hong Tian did not force them to drink more wine any longer, tonight was still long after all, if he got them drunk so fast like this, it would not be fun. Looking towards Su Ling who still continued on drinking the cup of wine but his face was not red nor panting, Yan Hong Tian smilingly said: “Su Ling, after this time, do you finally think that women are really not that stupid?”
Su Ling’s hand that was holding the cup of wine, was rigid. After hesitating for a moment, he coldly groaned: “Even if they are not stupid, they are still some vixens!” Qing Mo, that barbarous woman, it had been several days since they were fighting inside the chariot, his waist and back were still extremely painful up until now.
Lou Xi Yan who saw the fight that happened in the chariot between Su Ling and Qing Mo, he naturally knew the meaning of Su Ling ‘vixen’ word. Lou Xi Yan lightly smiled and said: “The conclusion of this case, even though it is different than the Emperor’s original scheme, but after going through this affair this time, the Yang family’s power has also been curbed by a lot.”
Yan Hong Tian slowly nodded his head, his cold eyes looked slightly stern, then he said with a deep voice: “Bai Yi is still young but he already knows how to seize the situation and to scheme profoundly like this. When he succeeds the throne in the future, we can not resign ourselves to disregard Liao Yue.”
Su Ling answered it clearly: “Chen will arrange someone to monitor Liao Yue’s movement at all times.” Even though Bai Yi tried to scheme Qiong Yue deliberately, it was not succeeded in a short period of time.
“Master, Young Master Qi is here.” Jing Sa’s words were still not finished, Qi Tian Yu’s shouting voice already echoed from the outside door: “Let me say this, Xi Yan, I am only away from home for several months, and you are already married! You also do not send someone to inform me, you are not so generous!”
Lou Xi Yan broke into laughter and shook his head, it had been so many years, but Tian Yu was still the same as before that his voice could already be heard before he actually entered the inside room. Qi Tian Yu just discovered that there were still other people inside the room, scanning the room, he only recognized two people. Slightly cupping his hands, Qi Tian Yu smilingly said: “General Su and Dan Daren are also here.”
The man who was sitting at the master’s seat, was simply sitting quietly like that and with his cold eyes were looking, the unyielding and aggressiveness from his whole body already made people not dare to look straight at him. This imposing manner like this and was still able to sit on Xi Yan family master’s seat, Qi Tian Yu could already guess the identity of this person.
“This subject kowtows in salute ……” Qi Tian Yu was just about to salute, Yan Hong Tian lifted his hand and said smilingly: “It is ok, today is a wedding feast, no need to be too polite, but one has to drink the wine.”
Qi Tian Yu was always an outspoken and straightforward person, once he heard what Yan Hong Tian said, he immediately laughed heartily and answered: “Tian Yu will keep the Emperor company!”
Tian Yu was also fond of and a believer in wine, Lou Xi Yan was afraid that they would start to fight for the wine, so he said to the servant who was behind him in a hurry: “Go and ask Madam and Xi Wu to come over, prepare to start the banquet, ok.”
Chapter 112: Wedding Night (Big Ending – Part2)
Not too long after, Lou Xi Wu’s lovable and charming figure came into the room at the moment, after she saluted one after another, Lou Xi Wu sat down beside Qi Tian Yu, sticking out her mouth, she humphed: “Qi dage (elder brother), you have not come and seen us for quite a while.”
Qi Tian Yu always considered her like his own sister whom he loved dearly, seeing that she was pouting, he immediately took out a slender box from his sleeve, and stuffed it on her hand softly, then smilingly said: “Am I not here now?! I give you Yancheng’s (the city) most well-known jade hairpin.”
“Really?” Lou Xi Wu opened the box that she got surprisingly, there was a spotless white gem with a glossy white jade that was quietly placed in there. Lou Xi Wu extremely liked it, then she happily smiled and said: “Thank you, Qi dage.”
The two people were talking and smiling, and did not pay any attention to Jing Sa who was on the side, whose original face was already dark and it was even darker now that he could scare people. At this moment, Zhuo Qing’s party delegation came in also, Qi Tian Yu looked one glance, immediately met with Gu Yun’s petite figure who was adorable and sweet in appearance, then he put his whole gaze on to her. The three people had not sat down yet, but he already asked fearlessly: “Sister in law (the actual words are saozi, older brother’s wife), who is the young beautiful woman beside you?”
“Qi Tian Yu, long time no see, you are still the same, but I advise you that it is best that you do not provoke her.” Zhuo Qing broke into laughter, this person was really a rough and coarse rascal, so long as he was able to look at a woman and he wanted to take liberties with her!
Qi Tian Yu did not understand and asked: “Why?”
Zhuo Qing was somewhat pointing her finger and looked one glance at Su Ling who was behind him (QTY) and whose face was like a black cloud. Qi Tian Yu turned around to be in contact with Su Ling’s cold eagle eyes, watching it with a smile, it turned out that the beautiful woman already had an owner.
Lightly coughing, Qi Tian Yu tactfully smiled and said: “It seems that I am one step too late.” Picking up his wine cup, Qi Tian Yu drank to toast Lou Xi Yan and Zhuo Qing and smilingly said: “I did not drink the wedding feast last time, I want to drink one cup this time!”
Lou Xi Yan also lifted up his wine cup, smilingly said: “Everyone does it together, ok.”
Everyone drank a toast, Yan Hong Tian picked up a cup of tea that was next to him and passed it on to Qing Feng’s hand, and he said softly: “You drink this.”
This act did not escape from Zhuo Qing and Gu Yun’s eyes, both of them looked at each other and smiled, not bad, there was also feeling between Yan Hong Tian and Qing Feng.
A group of people were drinking while they were also chatting, when they were done eating the meal, the moon was already at the tip of the branch, and it was close to zishi (11 pm-1 am). As a new groom, Lou Xi Yan naturally drank a lot of wine, so he was intoxicated and could not walk. Finally, Mo Bai and Zhuo Qing were lending their arms to support him, but he was still staggering all the way back to Lan Yue building.
Outside of Lan Yue building, Qi Tian Yu stubbornly wanted to go in to disturb the privacy of the bridal room, but he was blocked by the cold and strong Jing Sa’s face who was standing outside the courtyard: “Master is already intoxicated, Qi Gongzi, please return, ok.”
Comparing to Lou Xi Yan who was completely drunk, Qi Tian Yu’s was still clear headed obviously except for his face that was somewhat flushed, his expression was sober and calm. Putting his hand on Jing Sa’s shoulder, Qi Tian Yu smilingly said: “This can not do, we are still not disturbing the privacy of the bridal room yet!”
Yan Hong Tian’s delegation originally wanted to leave, but looking at Qi Tian Yu who persisted to want to disturb the privacy of the bridal room, they simply decided not to leave too hurriedly, all of them were encircling the outside of Lan Yue building.
Jing Sa remained unmoved as before, and he answered coldly: “The time is already late, Qi Gongzi, please return, ok!”
Qi Tian Yu turned around to give a supercilious look, how did Xi Yan find this blockhead to be a housekeeper, he was not fun at all. Patting Jing Sa’s shoulder strongly, Qi Tian Yu was unwilling to give up and he continued to say: “Jing Sa, do not be this serious! Disturbing the privacy of the bridal room is part of the festive ah! Xi Yan will not mind it.”
Jing Sa retreated back for one step, he ignored his words immediately this time, his tall figure stood up at the gate of the courtyard and stayed to make sure that they did not go in.
Lou Xi Wu who was standing beside Qi Tian Yu and because she also drank several cups of wine, her complexion was captivatingly red, her footsteps were somewhat weak and unstable, but her mouth still joined in the fun, she laughed heartily and said: “Right ah, right ah! We want to disturb the privacy of the bridal room!! Disturb the privacy of the bridal room!!”
Looking that she was standing unsteadily and still shouting noisily, Jing Sa helplessly stepped forward to support her unsteady body, then he said in a gentle voice: “Stop making trouble!”
Qi Tian Yu was looking interestingly at Jing Sa who was seldom gentle and soft, he could not help to smile and say: “Ck ck ck, truly favoring one and discriminating against the other ah! It seems that I am not here for three months, the Prime Minister’s manor is filled with love affairs ah!” (The actual words are actually peach blossom – 桃花 which can mean love affair). This block of stone finally got it straight la! It seemed that he chose a wrong time to be away from home, and then missed many good shows!
This obvious tease made Lou Xi Wu was ashamed so she lightly struggled to get free from Jing Sa’s hand, and she called out in a low voice: “Qi dage! What nonsense are you talking about?!”
“Nonsense talk?” Qi Tian Yu put both of his hands on his chest, casted a sidelong glance at Jing Sa, he lowly smiled and said: “I am thinking that you are going to get married soon, but as it turns out, I misinterpret it wrongly?!”
Even though it was clearly a teasing, Jing Sa’s face was still as before and did not look red due to anger or panting, his face was still looking coldly.
Mo Bai just happened to come out from the inside courtyard at this moment, looking at a group of people outside of the door who clearly wished to continue to do something, he just understood what they wanted to do. Not saying anything, Mo Bai and Jing Sa stood side by side, the two people, one on the left and the other on the right, were standing in front of the gate to seal tightly the courtyard door that was not big.
Lou Xi Wu was sensitive, being teased by Qi Tian Yu like this, her original face that was red because of the wine, became annoyed quickly so she was glaring at him, then Lou Xi Wu called out: “You always tease people! If you really have the ability, just think of a way to cross over these two gate deities so we can go in ah!”
Qi Tian Yu lightly raised his eyebrows, crossing over them would be impossible! Speaking of martial art, if there was only Jing Sa, he could still try it, but Mo Bai was also here now, he was surely not his opponent. Turning around to look one glance at this group of people who were behind him and who were waiting to watch a good show. They would not help so Qi Tian Yu sighed grievingly, and he still had to lean on himself, right.
Thinking deeply for a moment, Qi Tian Yu suddenly showed a crafty smile: “I have a way!”
Once Qi Tian Yu finished talking, he turned around to run to the rear court, everyone was looking at each other in dismay, all of them did not know what he wanted to do. But looking at his confident appearance a moment ago, they were somewhat curious and looking forward to his plan.
Inside the courtyard, Zhuo Qing’s heart was cursing at Mo Bai from head to toes, he knew perfectly well that Lou Xi Yan was intoxicated, he (MB) unexpectedly only helped him (LXY) until the door and then left, in any case he should help his master get on the bed, right!!
Zhuo Qing’s one hand was supporting Lou Xi Yan while her other hand pushed the door, who would have thought that the wooden door was really heavy. When she pushed the door, it unexpectedly did not push open, Lou Xi Yan continuously leaned on her shoulder. Zhuo Qing clenched her teeth, both of her hands were holding Lou Xi Yan’s waist. Lifting up her right leg, she kicked the door strongly, the door made a loud sound and was finally able to be opened so she breathed relaxingly. Zhuo Qing took Lou Xi Yan’s arms to assist him, the two people were stepping inside the room swayingly, but the doorway was somewhat tall and Zhuo Qing was wearing a long cheong sam skirt today so her foot tripped on it and both of them went down together.
Zhuo Qing’s heart was cold, oh no, howling in grief and waiting for the pain to come and meet her, just when she was about to fall on the ground, Zhuo Qing only felt that her waist was tight. She was already held by two pair of big hands and fell on his bosom, and Lou Xi Yan’s nervous inquiry echoed in her ear: “Be careful! Did you break anything?”
Zhuo Qing raised her head, only to see that Lou Xi Yan’s worry face that was looking at her, his expression was clear and pure, his footsteps were firm, she could not see any drunkenness on him. Zhuo Qing coldly humphed: “You are not intoxicated?”
Darn it, he was not intoxicated but he made her to support him to walk like that for a long time, and made her dripping with sweat now!
Taking her to his bosom, Lou Xi Yan’s elegant phoenix eyes narrowed slightly, he gently smiled and said: “This kind of day today, I can not be intoxicated drinking a good wine.”
The hallow of his palm was scorching, and with his ambiguous intonation, it made Zhuo Qing’s heart was overflowed slightly. But looking at his clear and bright appearances at the moment, and remembering that she was so tired to death a moment ago, he was still pretending to be intoxicated, Zhuo Qing could not help to be angry, and coldly humphed: “You are really a fox.”
Lou Xi Yan’s double sword looking eyebrows knitted gently, distressingly answered: “Husband is not able to hold alcohol, I do not pretend to be intoxicated so I can really be carried back!” Su Ling was always able to hold a huge volume (of alcohol), Hong Tian could not be intoxicated even if he drank a thousand cups, no need to talk more about Tian Yu. Even if the bubble in the wine jar was long and big (this is a saying that even if he was soaking in the wine as he grew up), how could he fight them?! Dan Yu Lan already left at an earlier time, if he did not pretend to be intoxicated, it was estimated that they could drink until dawn!
Through the material of her clothing, Zhuo Qing could still feel the scorching palm of his hand, lightly patting his hand, Zhuo Qing gave him a cup of hot tea, then she sighed and said: “Drink a little tea, ok, you also drink a lot of wine tonight.” The wine that Yan Hong Tian brought were strong, Yun was the only one who could drink it without changing any color, she and Xi Wu selected a relatively milder wine.
Taking the hot tea from Zhuo Qing’s hand and putting it aside, Lou Xi Yan’s hand embraced her graceful waist again, lightly carrying and putting her on his embrace to sit on his legs. Lou Xi Yan picked up the wine cups that were already prepared earlier, and poured a couple of cups of wine. He put one cup in Zhuo Qing’s hand, and he was holding another cup on his hand, then smilingly said: “I think that we should drink a formal exchange of cups between the bride and groom now.” (If you’re familiar with this tradition, the new couple usually drink a cup from each other’s hand before their wedding night. They’re criss crossing their hands so ZQ will drink from LXY’s cup & vice versa).
Still wanting to drink? He already drank enough tonight, putting down the wine cup from her hand, Zhuo Qing advised: “We have already drunk that ritual wedding ceremony by the bride and groom on that day, we do but need to drink again tonight.”
Thinking that day, after they drank the formal exchange of cups of wine ceremony, she said that promise, Lou Xi Yan’s heart felt warmth and happy. Bowing his head to look one glance at the cup of wine, Lou Xi Yan craftily smiled and answered: “Fine, no need to drink the formal exchange of cups of wine ceremony again, I will just feed you this cup of wine.”
Zhuo Qing had not reacted yet, Lou Xi Yan already drank up a mouthful of wine, his warm lips rapidly captured her lips, and the good wine was fed slowly into her mouth. Xi Yan’s distinct and clear breath, the wine sweet and spicy tastes, Zhuo Qing was somewhat tipsy and she humphed lowly: “Oh……”
After a very long time, then Lou Xi Yan only wished to release her, Zhuo Qing’s face was captivatingly red, staring at his complacent and smiling face, she scolded lowly: “Do not think of continuing to pretend that you are intoxicated, you simply look like a rascal at the moment!”
Lou Xi Yan did not mind it, using her shoulder to rest his chin, he slightly narrowed his eyes, smiling comfortably and gently, he said: “En, I am really intoxicated, being intoxicated…… by a beauty.”
“How have I not find out before that your mouth is so inadequate.” His shallow breaths were blowing on her shoulder and tickling her, it was tingling. Zhuo Qing disliked being tickled so she gently pushed Lou Xi Yan’s handsome face away leisurely. Thinking that she had not seen Lou Mu Hai tonight, Zhuo Qing asked: “Oh right, where is your dad?”
“Oh.” She responded lowly, she did not say anything more, but Zhuo Qing’s heart had some regrets, that she still ultimately could not obtain the elder generation’s approval.
Feeling that the person who was in his embrace and whose mood was suddenly changed into a downcast mood, Lou Xi Yan lifted up his head, and he deliberately smiled by the side of her ear and said lowly: “He said before he left……”
What did he say? Zhuo Qing looked towards Lou Xi Yan curiously, but only to see that he suddenly kept his lips close to Zhuo Qing’s ear, then he whispered ambiguously: “To make you to quickly give him a grandson. So……”
Lightly pushing his handsome face away, Zhuo Qing pretended to be foolish deliberately and said: “So what?”
“So we can not make him, the old person, to be disappointed ah!”
“Ah!” Lou Xi Yan suddenly carried her up unexpectedly, Zhuo Qing was scared so she shouted lowly.
Entering the bedroom in large strides, and softly putting Zhuo Qing on the captivating big red bed, Lou Xi Yan leaned forward slowly. The two people’s eyes were looking at each other like this, the tip of their noses were sticking, they could breathe each other’s breaths, both of their breathings began to be unsteady gradually. His slender hands were caressing her graceful and thin shoulder, Lou Xi Yan’s phoenix eyes raised gently, his serene gaze was lingering on Zhuo Qing’s chest, pointing his finger, he softly smiled and said: “I heard that the technique of mother in law’s tattoo was matchless in the whole world, I had not seen it by the side of the hot spring last time, I want to appreciate it properly this time.”
“Xi Yan!” This person’s spoken words were more and more indecent!! The two of them were thinking of the scene when they were at the hot spring at the same time. Lou Xi Yan wished to continue to say more, but Zhuo Qing’s face was already red.
Lou Xi Yan pulled the curtain covering veil softly, the thin muslin slid down leisurely and covered the room with charming and gentle atmosphere.
Outside the courtyard of the Lan Yue building, a group of people were doing nothing and could not enter either, they also were not willing to leave. Pestling in front of Lan Yue building to wait for what Qi Tian Yu’s so called ‘a way’ was.
Soon, Qi Tian Yu was holding two wooden basins, and his hand was also dragging several branches that were a little bit thinner than a woman’s wrist. His whole face had a smiling expression when he walked to come over, everyone was confused, what kind of way was this?!
Taking the wooden basin and putting them on the ground, Qi Tian Yu gripped the branches and stuffed them at Su Ling and Yan Hong Tian’s hands who still had indescribable faces, then he smiled proudly on himself and said: “We can not go in, we will just let them come out, it will be fine!”
Gu Yun was casting a sidelong glance at Qi Tian Yu, and she looked at him with a foolish and blank expressions: “Come out? How do they come out?” A spring night was worth a thousand gold (the word “spring” can be associated with love so the meaning of this sentence is that a wedding night is priceless), if Lou Xi Yan was willing to come out at this time, then he would be a terrible person!!
Qi Tian Yu laughed mischievously, looking at everyone’s expressions who was doubting him, lifting the branch, he was beating the wooden basin to make a strange and odd sound, while he was shouting with a big voice: “Fire la! Quickly put out the fire ah.”
“Quickly, people come ah! Put out the fire!” The quiet night was suddenly pierced by the yelling immediately, the sound penetrated powerfully!
Being stunned looking at Qi Tian Yu who was beating the wooden basin and yelling really loud, Gu Yun stroke her forehead lightly, then she sighed grievingly and said: “Heaven……” How did Lou Xi Yan can make friends with this silly and bad friend?!
Lou Xi Wu was also looking foolishly, this was what Qi dage so called a way?
Even though this so called a way was really silly and boring, but towards the two men who were already drinking the wine for the whole night and without their usual concentrated attentions, this crazy action appeared to be reckless and attractive. After seeing Su Ling and Yan Hong Tian who were looking one glance at each other, they unexpectedly were waving the branches on their hands, they were beating the wooden basin while hollering. Gu Yun and Qing Feng, these two people, retreated to the side in silence, they did not know whether to laugh or cry.
Hearing the shouting and yelling, the Prime Minister’s family servants and Imperial bodyguards were hurrying to come over continuously, they were carrying some buckets and wooden basins. But looking at the scene before their eyes, all of them could not help but to be flabbergasted.
Head housekeeper Jing’s and Imperial bodyguard Mo’s complexions were black, staring at the few people who were shouting and screaming in front of the courtyard, but they also could not step forward to stop them. Because the people ‘who created the disturbance’ were precisely the Emperor, General Su and Master’s close friend, Qi Gongzi, how could this be good for them?!
As a result, these several males were crazy in front of Lan Yue building because of the wine, this group of people did but know what to say. In the middle of the night, the Prime Minister’s manor was completely noisy.
The shouting outside the courtyard was daunting and vigorous, there was a spring scenery without boundary inside the room, Zhuo Qing’s whole clothing were thrown on the ground by Lou Xi Yan for a long time. Grabbing a thin quilt to cover her body, she separated and raised her head to dodge Lou Xi Yan’s gentle kisses on her neck. Zhuo Qing was slightly gasping and she asked: “Fire? Do you or do you not want….. to go out to see?”
The deeply engrossed, warm, fragrant, soft jade was closed tightly with the man for the first time and he said: “Not going.” He must make her become his woman completely, nothing could prevent him. Moreover, if there was really anything that could threaten their safeties, Mo Bai would naturally come in to say it. This kind of disturbance was absolutely caused by that group of idle and noisy people!
“But……” Zhuo Qing still wanted to say something, Lou Xi Yan’s two hands slowly tightened, the bodies of the two of them were sticking closely together, the scorching of the body’s temperature made Zhuo Qing’s breathing was more and more unstable.
“Let it burn, ok.” Nibbling Zhuo Qing’s shoulder, Lou Xi Yan’s hoarse and low voice as if there was a mellow and strong alcohol drink, it made someone tipsy.
The night scene was dense gradually, the autumn wind was attacking the people, the water outside the courtyard was rippling, and boiling a cauldron of voices! Inside the room, the candle night was swaying gently, with charming and gentle moans!
