Zhai Xing Pavilion

Almost entering the autumn, the weather was still warm that could scare people, the bright sunshine with a hot and stuffy atmosphere, it made people to have hot tempered ineffably. Zhuo Qing was leaning on the window lattice customarily, her eyes were looking at the lake that was in a distant away, her expression was completely empty. Even when Lou xi Yan was already entered the inner room and standing next to her, she was still indifferent.

Lou Xi Yan broke into laughter, his young wife seemed to get caught up in her own train of thought, no one could get her tiny bit of attention. Lightly encircling Zhuo Qing’s waist from behind, and bringing her into his bosom, Lou Xi Yan smilingly said with a soft voice: “What are you thinking that you are so entranced like this?”

The gentle and soft muttering, and the familiar embrace, Zhuo Qing recovered and was not alarmed, rather she was cuddling deeper on the man who was behind her, sighed and said in a low voice: “Does Su Mu Feng must really die undoubtedly?”

Once she and Gu Yun found out that Su Mu Feng had double personalities, they had already talked to Dan Yu Lan and Xi Yan, they did not believe it at first, but finally understood afterwards. They also put the greatest effort on this issue, but soon afterwards, the outcome was still followed in accordance to Qiong Yue’s law, Su Mu Feng would still be beheaded!

As a person who had studied psychology in humanity and a doctor, she understood Su Mu Feng’s psychological and circumstances. Consequently, watching that he was going to get an execution, it was hard for her to accept it yet!

Lou Xi Yan was silent for a moment, he finally answered: “No matter who was the murderer, whether it was Su Mu Feng or that so called Xi Feng, he killed three innocent women, that was a fact that could not be quibbled. If he was not punished severely, how could we justify ourselves to those people who died. Su Mu Feng might be an innocent, but could it be that those women who were in calamity, should die?!”

Lou Xi Yan actually did not wish to argue with Qing-er opinionatedly because of this matter, perhaps, he could understand some of her point of views, but did the legal principle pay attention to impartiality?

Turning her body around, and meeting at Lou Xi Yan’s always gentle but utterly persisted eyes, Zhuo Qing explained: “I did not mean it like that, but Su Mu Feng who was the main personality, was actually in an unconscious state of mind at that time. He was actually a sick person, when he killed those people, he was on an outbreak period. We can not punish a person who is already sick. This matter really does not have anything to redeem the situation?!”

Lou Xi Yan firmly shook his head, he sighed and said with a low voice: “One will pay with one’s life if one kills a person, it is the heaven’s law and earth’s principle, the ordinary people understand this since ancient times and carry on the principle. If because of this illness, one can kill those innocent people as one’s wish, where is the logic? Su Mu Feng killed people, and those deceased were not from the average people, they were loving daughters of those families who suffered because of the losses, and how they could just let him off. Qing-er, it is not that you are the only one who can not help him with this incident, Dan Yu Lan, I, even the Emperor, are all powerless!”

She had already thought about this answer, but hearing what Xi Yan was saying with her own ears, she still felt even more helpless. Carrying on her modern era’s concept was extremely conflicted with the ideal of this world, however thinking it again, the modern society could have this kind of concept of the legal system, was it not evolving due to the many years of history experiences? How could she insist on her concept for Qiong Yue to accept at this moment?

Regarding Su Mu Feng, besides feeling sorry for him, what could she still do for him?

Even though Zhuo Qing did not say anything again, nevertheless, her mood was not so good, lightly patting her cheek, Lou Xi Yan softly coaxed and said: “Ok la, you already strive your hardest, do not think about this again.”

Zhuo Qing slowly nodded her head, but she was still absent minded like that. Lou Xi Yan swept one glance at the red color wedding dress that was on the round table. It seemed that it was already came for some time, but the person had not touched it yet. Leading along Zhuo Qing’s hand to the front of the round table, Lou Xi Yan smilingly said: “The wedding ceremonial robe has been delivered, have you tried it yet?”

Knowing perfectly well that Lou Xi Yan was trying to change the subject, and to make her heart was a little better, Zhuo Qing was also cooperated and her vitality was raised, shaking her head, she smilingly said: “I am not able to put it on.” They delivered the wedding ceremonial robe first thing in the morning today, but she did not have any mood to try it at that time. So she let them leave first, even though it looked like it was simple now, but it was still a big wedding dress that she had to put on, she really was not able to put it on!

Lou Xi Yan was smiling, did she not say that she wanted to make a decision on her own wedding dress? Unexpectedly, she was not able to put it on?! Conveniently picking up the wedding dress to look one glance, Lou Xi Yan smilingly said: “I will help you.”

“Will you?” Zhuo Qing was staring and unable to speak anymore.

Lou Xi Yan indifferently smiled but did not speak, that long of material had to be put on her body, Zhuo Qing could not help but murmuring: “Are you sure that you know how to put it on?!” She remembered that it did not seem to be very complicated, right?!

Lou Xi Yan did not raise his head, seriously gesturing to help the woman to get dressed, strictly speaking, this was also very strange to him, but it should not be difficult, right?!

Smiling to see Lou Xi Yan who was seriously concentrating to look at the wedding dress by her side, a feeling of faint happiness made Zhuo Qing closed her mouth obediently. Spreading out her hand, she let him dress her, in any case, she could not put it on, so she did not have any right to talk naturally.

After a while, Lou Xi Yan finally breathed a long breath, Zhuo Qing lowered her head to see, it looked like there would not be a problem. When they tried to fit this dress the first time, the result was not bad, it should be well fitted more after they altered it, nothing more.

“Is it good looking?” Zhuo Qing lifted her head, she just saw that Lou Xi Yan was standing in there in a daze, gazing at her. Zhuo Qing felt that it was not bad originally, but she was somewhat uncomfortable being stared by him like this. Thinking that she wanted to alter the skirt that did not have many layers, Zhuo Qing knitted her eyebrows: “Are you or are you not thinking that the style of the bride’s dress is too ordinary and it has to be more elegant?” She thought it was somewhat excessive, but even if Lou Xi Yan wanted to alter it back now, there was not enough time to do it, she absolutely did not want to decorate herself like a Christmas tree!

For a very long time, Lou Xi Yan lightly shook his head, smilingly said: “You are beautiful like this.” The wedding dress that was altered, could not be regarded as a wedding dress, it was only a little bit gorgeous than a red cheongsam at most. He had heard in the past that all of the brides wished to put on a luxurious wedding dress, the skirt was falling down on the ground for 8 meters, it could not be better, and his Qing-er was indeed unconventional.

But he did actually not lie, she was really beautiful wearing this dress, the light red skirt set off her elegant appearance, there was no superfluous clothing and ornaments. It completely revealed her smart and beautiful figure, the red belt was bound on her waist tightly, he was not disappointed at all, his hand was still encircling that slender waistline that made him to be infatuated.

Lowering his head to press on Zhuo Qing’s forehead, Lou Xi Yan was in pain and gratified, he lowly sighed and said: “Three days, there is still three days, then you will be mine.” He had never thought that the days would be very long like this!

The strength on her waist was somewhat hurting her, their breathings were mixing together, she could feel that Lou Xi Yan’s mood was rushing forth. Zhuo Qing had a crafty smile, her delicate hands encircled on Lou Xi Yan’s neck, her thin lips were at the side of his ear and she softly whispered: “Do you or do you not want to practice on how to take off the wedding ceremonial robe ah?”

Lou Xi Yan was shaking all over, he lowly roared: “Qing-er–!” She did it on purpose!! The colorful sun was elevating and illuminating, the door to the front courtyard was open wide, she unexpectedly provoked him!! She absolutely did it on purpose!

Zhuo Qing still wanted to continue teasing him, at this moment, a clear and bright sound of a boy came through from the outside gate that was open wide: “Beautiful elder sister, are you here?”

Both of them were stiff, Lou Xi Yan released his hand embarrassingly, his emotion appeared to be in full of trouble and misfortune. Every time he and Qing-er were being intimate, there would always be someone who was interrupting them mysteriously!?

Zhuo Qing got up helplessly, and walked to the side of the door, she only saw an adorable and handsome face that was smiling at her, with a smile that was more brilliant than the sunshine from outside the room. Zhuo Qing did not start talking yet, the boy who was at the gate already had a big shout out exaggeratedly: “Wow, how beautiful oh!”

Zhuo Qing turned around to give a supercilious look, it was not just because of the ordinary red skirt, she accepted generously when Xi Yan was saying beautiful, but why was this little demon exploiting it noisily?!

Bai Yi rotated around Zhuo Qing’s direction, and nodded continuously, he smilingly said: “I also want to marry a beautiful princess consort (wang fei) who looks like you in the future!”

Lou Xi Yan’s expression slightly flashed, but he did not say anything, and just sat on the wooden chair to see if he would be saying more things.

“Oily-mouthed and smooth talking.” Zhuo Qing did not eat his behavior: “What are you doing to come here?!” In the past few days, he would run around to come to her every few days, she remembered that they were not too familiar, right?!

Bai Yi took out a cylindrical gadget from the inside of his sleeve and squeezed it into her hand, Zhuo Qing looked at it and asked: “What is this anyway?” He would deliver a few things all day long, all of the things that a small child liked, she really did not know when was her relationship with him was good like this?!

Pointing at the cylinder model excitingly, Bai Yi smilingly said: “This is very interesting, you look at it first.”

Looking at it helplessly and turning it around on her hand, the cylinder type gadget had transformed into a variety of different colors subsequently. But since there was no mirror, it only used the reflection from the polish and glossy copper, it was not nice looking at all.

Zhuo Qing could not endure it and smilingly said: “What is so strange about a kaleidoscope?”

Bai Yi opened his eyes big, scratched his head, and smilingly said: “Is this called kaleidoscope? That boss said to me that it was called a thousand spirit mirror, I thought that it was very interesting so I bought it.”

Looking at the the un-useful thing on her hand, Zhuo Qing did not want to attack a child’s enthusiasm, she could only give a hallow laugh and said: “Thank you ah.”

Bai Yi’s vigor came back immediately, he said with a chattering manner: You are welcome, I will look for something that is better to buy for you next time! Oh right, I have been going to many areas in the capital in the past few days, I still buy many things to bring back and give them to Imperial father and mother! Qiong Yue is really a vast territory with abundant resources.”

Zhuo Qing awkwardly laughed while nodding, it had been a long time since she was touched by a ten years old, it was a little unbearable feeling!! Requesting for help, she turned her head around to look at Lou Xi Yan, Lou Xi Yan slowly got up, smilingly said: “Seventh Prince, you are having a lot of fun times.”

“Prime Minister Lou?!” Bai Yi surprisingly looked towards Lou Xi Yan, lowly called out: “You are also here ah, I do not pay any attention!”

It was a deliberate neglect, right! Lou Xi Yan slightly smiled, but he did not point it out bluntly, his eyes flashed through some crafty expressions, he could still see it very clearly.

Entering the inner room, Bai Yi leisurely sat down next to Lou Xi Yan, he said smilingly with a curious face: “I see that the Prime Minister’s manor already put many lanterns these days, when is the day of the wedding ah?”

“In three days.”

Clapping his hands lightly, Bai Yi happily smiled and said: “I come this time around, not only that I can have knowledge and experience in the big celebration, but I can also have the wedding feast with Prime Minister Lou and beautiful elder sister!” In between his every moment, he was just a child who did not have any scheme.

Lou Xi Yan as always, exchanged a conventional greeting and said: “When Seventh Prince first came to Qiong Yue, Lou mou could not receive you properly, I ask to please forgive me.”

Bai Yi leisurely waved his hands repeatedly, and smilingly said: “Prime Minister Lou does not need to be polite, it was me who was disturbing you……”

“Stop!” Zhuo Qing coldly interrupted the conversations of the two of them that did not have any substance, then she said with a cold voice: “I have to trouble the two of you to chat slowly outside, I want to change my cloth!” This was a hot day, but she was wearing two sets of clothing ah.

Bai Yi hurriedly got up obediently, he smilingly said towards Lou Xi Yan: “Please, Prime Minister Lou.”

Lou Xi Yan also answered: “Please, Seventh Prince!”

One big and one small people showed consideration for the other afterwards, and finally got out of Zhai Xing pavilion, Zhuo Qing was somewhat in between laughters and tears.

Closing the door, she took off the wedding dress with great difficulty, then a sound of knocking of the door echoed one more time.

“Who is it?” Zhuo Qing was puzzled, who would also come?

“Sister in law, it is me.” Lou Xi Wu’s voice sounded dispiritedly from outside the door. Zhuo Qing opened the door to see a dispirited and downcast face.

Pulling her to enter the inner room, Zhuo Qing asked: “What is wrong?”

Leaning forward on the round table defeatedly, Lou Xi Wu scolded and said: “I am furious with Jing Sa!”

Lightly knitting her eyebrows, Zhuo Qing mockingly said: “Are you two not…… having a good development?” They already ate each other’s saliva, it should be on the right track next, right!

Zhuo Qing’s face clearly showed a smiling expression, Lou Xi Wu’s complexion was slightly red, battling her cry, she answered: “It is a little better than in the past, but…… but he has not sought marriage to elder brother ah!” Jing Sa’s attitude towards her was indeed different than in the past, sometimes he would still bicker with her, and call out her name angrily. He would absolutely not do this in the past, but…… marrying was just marrying, why had he not sought the marriage?! It really made her very anxious ah!

The young girl’s mind was written on her face without exception, Zhuo Qing laughed heartily and said: “Why are you so eager to marry ah?”

“Sister in law!!” She was ashamed and angry, Lou Xi Wu was glaring at Zhuo Qing, her eyeballs looked like they would come out quickly!

“Fine, fine, fine, I will not laugh.” Lightly coughing, and covering her smiling expression with great difficultly, Zhuo Qing comfortingly said: Jing Sa is not a person who does not have any plan and sense of responsibility, he has already accepted you gradually, you have to give him some time.”

“En.” Grievingly sighed, what sister in law said, it could only be like this. Looking one glance
at the red wedding dress that was on the bed, Lou Xi Wu suddenly approached Zhuo Qing’s side, lowly said: “Oh right, sister in law, Dad has already returned to the Prime Minister’s manor last night, but he still seems to be angry, but you do not need to worry, elder brother is determined to marry you. Even if Dad is angry but he really can not do anything to you, after the conclusion of the wedding ceremony, he will surely return to Xi Bei (northwest) immediately, so you can be at ease to be a bride, ok!”

Zhuo Qing actually did not have any worry, but she wanted to marry Xi Yan after all, Lou Mu Hai did not like her and could not get his parents’s wedding blessings, there would be a slight flaw inevitably. Thinking this, she was also thinking about her own parents, they unexpectedly could not make them see her wedding ceremony, her heart felt sorry inevitably.

Pulling Zhuo Qing’s hand, Lou Xi Wu seemed to be more excited than her: “Only three more days oh, are you or are you not excited?”

Zhuo Qing nodded her head, faintly answered: “A little, ok.”

Pouting her mouth slightly, Lou Xi Wu called out: “What is this ‘a little’? Can it be that you are not looking forward to marrying my elder brother?”

Casting a sidelong glance at Lou Xi Wu, Zhuo Qing returned the compliment and said: “Wait when you are marrying Jing Sa, you will know the term ‘looking forward’ or ‘not looking forward’!”

Lou Xi Wu stared blankly: “Why do you always change the subject into different topic with me ah. I am leaving, I do not want to speak with you!” Angrily speaking, she also ran out.

Zhuo Qing took a long relaxed breath, it was finally quiet, Lou Xi Wu was noisy like this, regarding the wedding in three days, she was really somewhat…… excited, looking forward too…… and nervous……
*****
The season had changed in the Qing Xuan Palace Hall, however things had remained the same even though the people had changed.

Was it the time for the pear tree to be fruitful again, even though it was still young but the fruits were already sweet. When it was in the previous years, it was the most happiness time for the Princess, now…… Xiao Lian was in pain looking at the thin and haggard figure who was by the side of the window, her heart was scolding at Lou Xi Yan and Qing Ling again. These kind of people could prepare for their wedding happily, but the Princess had to accept the torment, this world was really not fair!!

Yang Zhi Lan was standing behind Yan Ru Xuan for a very long time, then she was caressing her hair lightly, and asking tenderly: “Xuan-er, it is almost autumn, do you want to go to the hunting field to have fun ah?”

Her eyes were always staring at the pear tree that was outside the window, Yan Ru Xuan shook her head stupefyingly.

Her hand was caressing Yan Ru Xuan’s thin cheek lightly to turn her face around so she could look face to face with her with great difficulty, Yang Zhi Lan said hurriedly: “If you do not go, then those Emperor’s relatives would hunt carelessly, we will not know how many animals will suffer any calamity.”

Xiao Lian also stepped forwards immediately, half kneeling at Yan Ru Xuan’s feet, she urged softly: “Princess, go, ok, did you still remember that you saved the deer near the river bank last year? Did you not say that you wanted to visit it every year!”

There was still three more days before Lou Xi Yan’s wedding, the inside Imperial palace was a-buzzing, even though nobody dared to tell the Princess, it was difficult to guarantee that one person would let her hear it accidentally, nobody knew how the Princess would take the news when the time came!!

Yan Ru Xuan had not frowned her eyebrows for a long time, what they were saying, she seemed to hear it a little. Striking while the iron was still hot, Yang Zhi Lan continued to say: “Go, ok, Imperial mother will arrange it for you, you will set off early tomorrow, ok?”

For a very long time, Yan Ru Xuan finally nodded her head, Yang Zhi Lan could finally set a side a big stone in her heart (stop worrying), she felt relieved and said smilingly: “It is already noon, you are also tired, take a rest, ok.”
Obedient daughter, when you came back, Imperial mother would let you see Lou Xi Yan’s down and out appearance!!

Inside the Imperial garden, Yang Zhi Lan was walking slowly within the cluster of flowers, there was only one momo who was following by her side.

“How is the arrangement of the matter?” Her hand was stroking the delicate flower, Yang Zhi Lan lowly asked.

The momo was half lowering her body and walking behind Yang Zhi Lan, her face was full of confident smile.

“There will absolutely no careless mistake this time, even if we can not pull Lou Xi Yan down, we will make him eat the responsibility completely.”

Yang Zhi Lan coldly groaned and said: “He is indeed a one hundred percent fox, you must execute this carefully this time.” He discovered a lot of clues last time and provoked many inconvenient, there should absolutely no mishap this time!

“Empress Dowager, please do not worry, there will absolutely no mishap this time!”

“Good!” Yang Zhi Lan plucked one chrysanthemum flower that had not blossomed yet, and threw it away on the ground.

Lou Xi Yan, Aijia wanted to see, whether or not your wedding could still be held!

Record of Washed Grievances (By Qian Lu) Chapter 102: The Miserable Su Mu Feng

Over 2,800 words.

This chapter was translated by Sian for https://nuttyisprocrasinating.wordpress.com only and edited by Din2.

 

Zhuo Qing stepped forward for one step, smilingly said: “Su Gongzi.”

Su Mu Feng answered with the same calmness and smile, he spoke bluntly:: “If you want to ask anything, just ask, ok.”

Zhuo Qing did not exchange any more greetings either, and asked: “Did you know what happened last night?”

Slowly shaking his head, Su Mu Feng calmly answered: “They said that I attacked you last night, I am that crazy person who has been stealing people’s hearts.” He said it very serenely, this kind of serene emotion made people really amazed. If you said that you did not know what happened, but you suddenly said that you turned into a murderer, even if you were a calm and indifferent person, you should also want to protest, right!

Zhuo Qing remained calm and collected, and continued to ask: “What do you think?”

“Maybe I am. I did not have any impression on the matter from yesterday, but when I was awaken, I was at the Ministry of Justice’s prison and this was an undeniable fact.” These past few years, he did not remember anything that he had done frequently. When he was awaken, not only that he would be at some strange places, but also some indescribable scars would appear on his body. He thought to himself that he had some problems, but he did not know that he was unexpectedly that crazy murderer devil.

Suddenly thinking of something, Su Mu Feng looked towards Gu Yun with a somewhat anxious look, and the serene look on his face was finally removed: “Since you all believe that I am the murderer, can you release Aunt Xin?”

“Out of the question.” Gu Yun firmly answered.

“Why?” Since the murderer was actually him, Aunt Xin was just an innocent person!

Gu Yun lowly sighed, realistically said: “She already knew from the beginning who was the murderer, but she insisted on taking the blame for you, she already violated and covered up the crime.”

“Covering up the crime?” Su Mu Feng muttered to himself for a moment, and leaned against the stone wall, softly and lowly mumbled to say: “Good, ok, at the very least, she does not need to die.”

His face showed an extreme relax expression that made Zhuo Qing felt a trace of restlessness, urgently said: “Did you not want to say anything?” It was not his own fault having this double personalities, did he really not plan to fight for himself?
“No, however you want to convict, I will comply with you all, ok.” Finished speaking, Su Mu Feng slowly closed his eyes, he was not willing to speak with them again.

His answer really made Zhuo Qing disappointed.

The two people were looking one glance at each other, then they withdrew to the outside of prison. Zhuo Qing already had premonition last night that this thing would develop like this situation now, but she did not think before that Su Mu Feng was unexpectedly willing to undertook all the guilts even though he did not know anything himself. She really did not know whether to admire him or scold him. Being silent at the prison gate for a long time, Gu Yun put her hand on Zhuo Qing’s shoulder, she sighed and said: “We will look for Gu Yue Xin first, once we know the reason of this matter clearly, we will discuss it again.”

“En.” It could only be like this, from Su Mu Feng’s side, she was afraid that he would not give any answer to them.

Sweeping one glance at the bandage on Zhuo Qing’s hand, Gu Yun anxiously ask: “Your hand is really alright?”

Last night was a thrilling situation, not only Lou Xi Yan was really frightened, she was also scared until her whole body was sweating!

Shaking her fingers freely and flexibly, Zhuo Qing smilingly said: “Is there something wrong with me? I am still here?”

Gu Yun shrugged her shoulders: “That is right.” Lou Xi Yan was still more nervous than her! After all, their wedding ceremony would be here in a few days. Speaking of which, Lou Xi Yan could be regarded to indulge at Qing. Their big day was coming quickly, but he still allowed her to run around outside all day long.

Both of them were chatting all the way, until they arrived at Gu Yue Xin’s prison. Looking towards them, Gu Yue Xin did not give any look to them either, only half sitting on the stone bed, she coldly asked: “What are you all coming here for?”

Gu Yun took the lead to stride into the prison, slowly said: “We come to inform you one good news, we have finally captured the real murderer last night, you may not need to……”

Sure enough, Gu Yun’s speaking voice had not left, Gu Yue Xin hurriedly stood up from the stone bed, she was staring at Gu Yun, calling out impatiently: “Whom did you capture?”

“Su Mu Feng.” Gu Yun meticulously said it slowly and clearly.

“No.” Gu Yue Xin rushed towards Gu Yun, Gu Yun flexibly dodged her hands, Gu Yue Xin was clearly already panicky, she urgently said: “You captured the wrong person, Mu Feng, he was not the murderer!! He was innocent!” Mu Feng, this child, why did he not go!! Why did he not go ah.

Zhuo Qing coldly said: “If he was not the murderer, then who was the murderer?”

Gu Yue Xin was shaking all over, her long mouth was already closed again, it was closing and opening up again. Several times afterwards, and as if her strength had been drawn out empty, Gu Yue Xin collapsed and sat on the ground. She was still not able to say any word, how could she start to explain? Even if she could speak out, how many people would be able to believe her anyway?!!!

She really knew!! Zhuo Qing was certain for a bit, entering the prison, and squatting down next to Gu Yue Xin, Zhuo Qing was leading her hand, and she quietly asked: “That person who was using Su Mu Feng’s body, the man who wanted to kill after he was being touched by a woman, who was he? How could I was able to see him?”

“You?” Zhuo Qing’s speaking tone just left, Gu Yue Xin immediately looked like she was being shocked by electricity and she withdrew her hands. Her bloodshot eyes were filled with amazement and they were staring at Zhuo Qing, how could she know…… how was it possible?!

Her reaction boosted Zhuo Qing’s morale, softly smiling, Zhuo Qing continued to say: “You do not need to feel strange, I know that there are two different souls inside Su Mu Feng’s body. The person who is not Su Mu Feng is the one who has been murdering people, who is he? What is his name, you have met him, is that right?”

Her eyes were flickering and lowering her head, Gu Yue Xin’s heart was still struggling, whether or not she could believe the woman who was in front of her? How did she know Mu Feng’s matter, how was Mu Feng in the end?!

Seeing that her thought was hesitating, Gu Yun said this one harsh sentence one more time: “If you are not willing to say, we are not able to help Su Mu Feng. He will be dead undoubtedly!”

Gu Yue Xin frighteningly lifted up her head again, her eyes were examining the two odd women closely for a good moment, finally, as if she had determined, she faintly sighed and said: “This incident, it was already a mistake from the beginning! Twenty years ago, my second elder sister and Mu Feng’s father, Su Zhan Yi, met and fell in love, but at that time, Su Zhan Yi already had a legal wife and two concubines. Dealing with the two people’s profound emotions, in spite of the strong opposition from the Gu’s family, second elder sister determined to enter the Su’s family, and become Su Zhan Yi’s concubine. Their emotions were really good, Su Zhan Yi extremely cherished second elder sister, not long after, she gave birth to Mu Feng. When Su Zhan Yi was at home, the legal wife and other concubines naturally did not dare to do anything to second elder sister, but when Su Zhan Yi went out, they were deliberately making things difficult for her. Second elder sister’s tragedy was also Mu Feng’s tragedy that happened when he was ten years old.”

Zhuo Qing and Gu Yun looked towards each other, guessed that she must want to tell them the actual situation, the two people was sitting cross legged casually next to Gu Yue Xin’s side, and quietly listening to her words.

“Su Zhan Yi went to the capital that year, and when he was not at home, several children from the legal wife’s family were playing around at the Su’s manor, Mu Feng was always extremely attractive and intelligent as a child until he grew up. That several children took the initiative to seek him to play with them, who would have thought that he was shy and had an indifferent temperament since he was young. His indifferent character offended the legal wife’s young niece, as she wanted Mu Feng to accompany her to play. Dragging the two people who were rolling together, their clothes were also in disorder, hearing the noise, the servant girls saw the two people who were laying on the ground, and they called out the legal wife to come in a rush.”

Speaking to here, Gu Yue Xin who originally had a sighing face, suddenly changed her tone of voice and she looked rather resentful: “Looking that the adults were coming, the small girl would not admit even if she died that she was the one who pulled Mu Feng down and not letting him go. She was weeping and saying that it was Mu Feng who groped her with an errant intention, the other kids did not dare to speak the truth about it either, they denounced Mu Feng one by one. Mu Feng did not dispute either, the legal wife finally got a reason with great difficulty, she would naturally not going to let Mu Feng get away with it, so he demanded to use the family’s law, and punish him with a 50 rod hits! A ten year old child, who would be able to endure a 50 rod hits!! Second elder sister pleaded for leniency for a while, the legal wife was still not letting go to dishonor the family tradition inflexibly. After being hit for ten times, Mu Feng was almost lost consciousness, second elder sister could only lie next to Mu Feng to substitute his other 40 hits punishment. Even though second elder sister’s medical expertise was superior, her body was extremely weak, she was gone after three days, when I came in a hurry, Mu Feng was still unconscious, in a fury, I took Mu Feng back to the Gu’s family.”

Unexpectedly, the person was still alive after they were trying to beat him to death?! Gu Yun’s hand changed into a fist unexpectedly. On the other hand, Zhuo Qing was still undisturbed, she asked in a low voice: “Su Mu Feng had these double personalities from that time??”

Looking at her own mother who died helplessly because of him, this provocation could bring about the other split personality, and it was not impossible either. Especially, this was his experience when he was young, when his temperament was still taking a decisive function!

Suspiciously looking one glance at Zhuo Qing, Gu Yue Xin shook her head, and continued to say: “We did not know anything about this so called double personalities, we felt that this child was very strange at the beginning. He seemed to be normal and looked like his ordinary self and it was no different in the morning, even he did not remember how my second elder sister died. In order not to make him feel sad, we could only lie to him and say that second elder sister died due to illness. He would change into his other self during the night, he was violent, very shady, covered with vicious temperaments, his thought was filled with resentment. He tried to find all of the Gu Yue’s family martial art books, and went all out to practice them, he almost caught fire to become a member of the devil for several times (this is a saying that because he learned all these martial arts incorrectly so he became like a devil or bad guy). There was no one who could do anything about it, the family elders were afraid that he would take his young life out (kill himself due to learning the martial arts incorrectly) so they began to teach him the martial arts, he was entirely different during the day time and the evening. In order to differentiate them, we called him Mu Feng during the day, and Xi Feng during the night. It was like this for the next five years, this next five years, Xi Feng’s martial arts were more and more powerful, Mu Feng’s zither skill was also higher and higher. Later on, Xi Feng would appear less, we thought that this kid’s strange illness got better, so thus, when Su Zhan Yi was begging for him to come back six years ago, the Gu Yue’s family finally agreed to let Mu Feng go back.”

As it turned out, he was Xi Feng!! Double personalities were actually quite common where people had split personalities, both individuals could exist independently. In Su Mu Feng’s case, he did not seem to know Xi Feng’s existence, and Xi Feng was posing as Mu Feng’s protection?!

“Afterwards, so long as there was a woman who touched Mu Feng, Xi Feng would appear and kill that person at night?!”

“En, in Xi Feng’s heart, those girls from the wealthy families who were pulling Mu Feng aggressively, were all artificial and lowly women, and should be dead entirely!” Gu Yue Xin slightly closed her eyes, her heart was in pain naturally and evidently. Knowing perfectly well that he had this kind of illness, but she could not prevent him or help him, then it ended up with this kind of conclusion!

Thinking of that pair of eyes that she could almost unable to resist last night, Zhuo Qing asked: “I want to know, his hyp (from hypnosis but she stops her sentence)…… who was teaching the hypnosis method to him?” His teacher was sure to be a hypnosis master, why did he not discover and help Su Mu Feng with any treatment earlier?!

Mentioning this, Gu Yue Xin’s face looked more worry: “Mu Feng actually did not learn hypnosis, the one who could hypnosis was Xi Feng. In Gu Yue’s family clan member, every generation has one person who has silver grayish eyes naturally, their ability to hypnosis is a gift. This generation, unexpectedly appears on Xi Feng’s body, I do not know if it is a predestined affinity or disaster!”

Naturally?! Heaven ah! Unexpectedly, there was still this kind of thing!

Gu Yue Xin suddenly grabbed Gu Yun and Zhuo Qing’s hands, this woman was very proud and arrogant in the past, but her eyes were already blurry with tears at this moment: “I know, no matter whether it is Mu Feng or Xi Feng, you all think that they are still the same person. He is the murderer but they are very pitiful, especially Mu Feng, he absolutely does not know what has happened. Can you or can you not help him, ok!!”

Listening to the sound of choking and weeping made the two of them move emotionally, especially after they saw the person who was bound by a chain firmly a moment ago, nevertheless, Su Mu Feng was still able to smile tranquilly and calmly, how could they not want to help him? But here was not modern times, where they could give him a psychiatry diagnosis and he could be classified as having double personalities. Then, they could maybe spare him from a death penalty, but during this ancient times, would anybody believe them? Even if they would believe, he killed the daughters of the high ranking officials and noblemen after all, nobody would let him off!

Gu Yun and Zhuo Qing sank into contemplation at the same time.

 
Sian’s notes:
Ok, I really feel sorry for Su Mu Feng. Yes, his devil part “killed” those women, but the other part of him was actually innocent. That’s not fair to convict 1/2 part of the innocent part of this person to pay for something that the other 1/2 did… 😭😭😭 Send Mu Feng to the modern times or give him to me, I’ll cure him. Poor Mu Feng!!!

Record of Washed Grievances (By Qian Lu) Chapter 101: The Real Murderer Was Captured

I appologize that I haven’t really had any time to do any translation while on my vacation so for the next two weeks, Β I will only update one chapter on Mondays. Then the two chapters update will resume on Jan 2nd. Over 2,350 words.

This chapter was translated by Sian for https://nuttyisprocrasinating.wordpress.com only and edited by Din2.

 

The thin blade that was bright and clean was wandering on the skin, the cold sharp knife was playing across the chest, the pretty red color was following along the incision, playing across the waist, then falling into the silk cover…… As if he was used with this kind of knife, the man slowly stretched his hand to explore to the thoracic cavity. Soon, the man’s hand clasped a heart that was still thumping and pulsing and handing it over in front of Zhuo Qing. Waiting to see her frightened and painful expressions, this made him to get the most excited moment. When he was facing towards Zhuo Qing’s eyes, his mind was actually panicky, and when he was facing the calm looking eyes that were serene, there was no frightened and pain on her face even more.

The demonic charm’s smiling expression that was on the side of the man’s lips was rigid now! Staring blankly to look at her own heart that was scooped out, how could she have this calm expression?!! What was going on?

“What is going on?” This question was not only in the mind of the man who was incessantly and foolishly sitting on the bed, apart from Gu Yun, the other three men who were inside the room were amazed when they were looking at what happened near the curtain!

Afterwards, the man and Zhuo Qing who were laying on the bed a moment ago, looked face to face for a good moment, then he sat up and was in his own mind. Zhuo Qing immediately shifted towards the other direction, and then a strange thing happened. The man looked at the empty bed, removed someone’s clothing and reached into his clothing, then took out a sharp and thin knife from his waist. Very skillfully and agilely, he slashed the knife, his hand also stretched into the knife incision, his hand looked like he was clasping some stuff and taking it out. His face was carrying an excitement and zealotry from beginning to end, and he just looked like he was demonstrating how he removed the heart to all of them, it was weird regardless how one saw it…… Gu Yun slightly smiled, calmly answered: “Continue watching and you will understand.” It looked like Qing was successful in reversing the hypnosis.

“You……” The man was staring at Zhuo Qing’s serene eyes, afterwards, he only felt a burst of dizziness, he discovered with shock that the heart that was in his hand unexpectedly disappeared without a trace. A handful of blood was also obliterated completely, he became aware that the bed sheet was white, there was nothing, Zhuo Qing’s sharp eyes were watching attentively and coldly at him.

“This…… is impossible!” The man was staring at Zhuo Qing, the domineering demonic charm that was on his facial expression changed surprisingly and disturbingly.

Zhuo Qing straightened up immediately, her red lips lightly opened, with a cold voice, she said: “In this world, you are not the only one who can hypnosis!” She admitted that at the very first beginning, she almost lost in his eyes, if she did not have any preparation, he would probably succeeded hypnotizing her.

The man’s eyes flashed through a trace of ruthlessness, Zhuo Qing was startled, her body fell down rapidly, her hand obstructed her chest subconsciously. The knife that was on the man’s hand played across the back of her hand, the man’s body appeared to move. Lou Xi Yan’s anxious voice echoed at that time: “Mo Bai, Ao Tian, capture him!”

Mo Bai jumped down from the top of the beam and attacked towards the man’s arm, the man agilely turned to kick his foot. The hand that was holding a knife was still not giving up and trying to pierce Zhuo Qing who was already retreated to the most distant area of the bed. Just before several hits would blow Zhuo Qing’s chest, there was a big palm that was extended from the back of the bed curtain to intercept the man’s wrist, hence, the inner strength jolted the man’s attack. Zhuo Qing only felt that her shoulder was tight, an enormous power threw her out of the bed, the power was big, she almost knocked against the screen. Fortunately, Lou Xi Yan and Gu Yun caught her body promptly, so she did not injure herself.

Mo Bai and Ao Tian, both of the great masters, surrounded to attack, the man’s movement was somewhat frenetic, but after ten attacks, he unexpectedly did not appear to be defeated either. Gu Yun looked one glance at the window, her eyes slightly flashed out, then she shouted: “Mo Bai, Ao Tian, do not let him escape out of this room!”

Her speaking voice was barely left out, the man immediately retreated towards the window, with one dodge, he already went out of the room. Mo Bai, Ao Tian, also bent over to go out powerfully.

Gu Yun was relaxed secretly, there were Lou Xi Yan and Zhuo Qing in this room, who did not know martial arts, if they continued to fight inside and one of them was caught by the man and became a hostage, that would be bad. Since he went outside, it was impossible for him to escape.

As expected, when the man went outside the courtyard, he was met with Ye Mei’s raging and long whip. Around the small courtyard, the hidden archers were also showing themselves completely, their bows were targeted at that person with a gray clothing.

Gu Yun turned around to look one glance at Zhuo Qing who was in Lou Xi Yan’s embrace, there was him to take care of Qing, so it should be alright, Gu Yun also went to the outside courtyard.

Sizing up Zhuo Qing’s whole body up and down, Lou Xi Yan urgently said: “Where did you hurt?” When he looked at the dagger that was waved towards her, he totally forgot to breathe, and was afraid to wink, if he would lose her!

Just liked when she lost consciousness by the side of the lotus pond last time, she only heard Lou Xi Wu’s realistic saying, she finally saw Lou Xi Yan’s face that turned pale today, but her heart was very hurt. She liked his faint smile, and his manner when he was planning his strategies!!

Zhuo Qing shook her head strongly, with a trembling voice, she said: “I am alright.”

“Let me take a look.” Grabbing Zhuo Qing’s hand, there was about three inches length of slash on the back of her left hand, the blood was hashing. Fortunately, the wound was not deep, it was merely sept out a bead of blood, it was not a lot of blood.

Lou Xi Yan was finally at ease, tearing the cuff of his cloth, and lightly wrapping her wound, Zhuo Qing did not dare to move either, she could only say: “Xi Yan, I am really alright, only a little cut, really.”

Looking at her one glance grudgingly and helplessly, Lou Xi Yan sighed secretly, he discovered that after he fell in love with her, his heart did not have the original unyielding heart like before!

Taking her closely to his embrace, her warm body, the soft and long breath, all were showing that she was really alright, Lou Xi Yan’s heart finally returned to the original position after a while!

Zhuo Qing saw that his complexion was a little better, then whisperingly said: “Let us go out to take a look, is that ok?”

Lou Xi Yan nodded his head helplessly, pulling her hand that had no injury, they walked to the side of the door, and did not allow her to be any closer.

Mo Bai, Ye Mei, Ao Tian, the three people were attacking, the man did not have any opportunity to escape again. Mo Bai and Ao Tian’s were attacking from the left and right, Ye Mei was able to use the long whip to trap the man and bind him up. The other government officials were also seizing the opportunity to use a rope that was already prepared in advance properly. Using this whole plan to trap the man would definitely bear fruit.

Cheng Hang saw the man’s face clearly, immediately scolded disdainfully and said: “Su Mu Feng, you are unexpectedly the real murderer! You still make your own maternal aunt to take a blame for you! You are simply worst than a beast!” He was pretending that he did not know anything this morning, this dignified man was simply a wretched!!

The man was still struggling to get free, his ruthless eyes were staring at Cheng Hang straightforwardly, then he roared to say: “What happened to Aunt Xin!”

These pair of eyes were cloudy and very pungent, it did not resemble the original Su Mu Feng’s one bit, Cheng Hang’s heart could not help but get agitated. Swallowing his saliva, he scolded: “You are still playing dumb! Someone comes, escort him to return!”

The bailiffs were gathering around to pull the man away, Zhuo Qing lowly shouted: “Hold on, I want to ask him some questions.”

Cheng Hang turned his head around, looked at her hand that was wrapped by a cloth, he thought that her injury was very serious, he advised to say: “Madam, you should go to wrap up your wound, ok, what questions do you want to ask, you can ask as you please once he arrives at the government office.”

Turning around to face the bailiffs, he shouted: “Escort and return.” This was finally the real murderer this time, right, Dan Yu Lan did not need to be sent to prison in the end!!

Looking at the delegation of men who were walking out hurriedly, Zhuo Qing lowered her head, she sighed and said: “I am afraid that it will not be sufficient to ask him later on.”

She was whispering her words, Lou Xi Yan did not hear it clearly, and he asked: “What did you say?”

Lightly shaking her head, Zhuo Qing sighed and said: “Nothing.” She was hoping that her anticipation would not come true!
*****
Unfortunately, the heaven did not comply with one’s hope, the matter that Zhuo Qing was anxious about, was still happened…… The sky was bright, Zhuo Qing was accompanied by Lou Xi Yan to arrive at the Ministry of Justice. Barely entering the study room, she already heard Cheng Hang’s loud voice that was shouting: “I am furious, once Su Mu Feng returned back to the government office, he was playing a fool, he did not know what happened entirely, we already captured him now, but he was still refusing to admit what he had done! Ridiculous!”

Zhuo Qing lowly sighed, the thing that she was anxious about, it still happened!

Both of them entered the inner room, Dan Yu Lan saw them first, slightly nodded and said: “Prime Minister Lou, Madam.”

Even though she already guessed what had happened, Zhuo Qing still asked: “What happened?”

Cheng Hang was angry and he lowly groaned and said: “Su Mu Feng was unexpectedly pretending to be naive, he said that she did not know what happened last night!!”

Gu Yun already arrived at an earlier time, half leaning against the side of the door, she said with a low voice: “He and the one from last night are not the same.”

The entire person was completely different, apart from that clothing, they were simply two different people!! It was possible that Qing knew where the problem came from!

Looking face to face one glance at Gu Yun, Zhuo Qing helplessly said: “I want to meet with him.”

Due to Zhuo Qing’s persistence, only she and Gu Yun went to the prison cell, once they entered the inside prison, she finally knew why Lou Xi Yan and Dan Yu Lan agreed to let them see the criminal alone even though it would be very dangerous. The inside of the prison cell was spacious, there was only a very small window, fortunately, the sunshine was glittering from the outside, so the inside of the prison cell was still bright. In the deepest prison cell, there was a gray’s clothing man who was sitting with his cross legged. His hands were locked up with two strip of chains, the chains’ thickness were almost like a woman’s wrists. One side of the chain was tied on his hands, and the other side was deeply inserted inside the wall, his feet were also like this.

If it was an ordinary person whose hands and feet were tied up with heavy chains like this, he would not be able to move, just trying to move one’s hand or foot, it would definitely be difficult, right.

The length of the iron chain was limited, even if he could really stand up to attack people, he could only reach to half of the prison cell, being bound like this, nobody could really do anything, ok!

Zhuo Qing was watching closely and attentively at the man who was not too far away, the way he was sitting cross legged like this, it looked like…… when she saw him for the first time at Lou Xi Wu’s courtyard, yes, even though the environment was completely different. There was no lovable flower and grassy area, no graceful zither sound, but his body was still flowing that sort of graceful and indifferent appearance. This man was exactly that Su Mu Feng whom they were very familiar with.

Su Mu Feng appeared to discover their arrivals, slowly opened his eyes to look, he was smiling slightly towards them. Lightly nodding his head, it seemed like he was not a prisoner, but he was still receiving them as visitors at his home. This side of his personality, where one could maintain his own steadiness, how many people could accomplish this?

Gu Yun lowly sighed, looked one glance towards Zhuo Qing, this kind of Su Mu Feng, how could people able to connect together with that violent one from last night?!

Record of Washed Grievances (By Qian Lu) Chapter 100: Risking One’s Life

I’m posting this chapter earlier as I’m going to sleep soon.

Over 4,600 words.

This chapter was translated by Sian for https://nuttyisprocrasinating.wordpress.com only and edited by Din2.

 

“Mu Feng?” Looking at Su Mu Feng’s deep eyes, Gu Yue Xin only felt like she was in an ice hole, she could not help but shivering slightly, and lowering her head, Gu Yue Xin did not dare to look at him.

Squatting down by the side of Gu Yue Xin, Su Mu Feng was gazing at the side of Gu Yue Xin’s beautiful face, he asked with a low voice: “Aunt Xin, all the things that you said, was it really true?”

Even though his voice was very low, Gu Yun could still see from his surprise and uncertain face that he was not willing to believe it. This was a person’s expression that should not know anything at all, but the first time that Gu Yue Xin saw Su Mu Feng’s expression, she was alarmed and concerned, what was she worry about him?!

Gu Yun’s pair of cold eyes were watching closely at Su Mu Feng and Gu Yue Xin, as she did not want to miss any of their expressions. Nevertheless, after Zhuo Qing heard this so called hypnosis method, she was looking pensively, sinking into her own deep thought.

“I……” Gu Yue Xin hesitated for a moment, after that she nodded her head strongly, and answered coldly and firmly: “It was really true.”

Su Mu Feng whose face was always indifferent, finally changed, a person who had never taken an initiative to touch other people, grabbed Gu Yue Xin’s shoulder, lowly roared: “Why did you want to do this?”

The tears on her eyes started to spill, Gu Yue Xin was breathing deeply, and simply did not let the tears to fall. Lightly pushing aside Su Mu Feng’s hand, Gu Yue Xin lowly sighed and said: “Mu Feng…… I am only protecting you! You return to the Gu’s family house, ok, do not stay in the capital.”

Speaking with regard of losing his mother when he was a child, Aunt Xin was just liked his mother, he could not accept that Gu Yue Xin would kill people in order to protect him. Even though he also felt that those young ladies’ methods in handling things made people to be hateful and…… fearful, but he had never thought that they should die ah.

“I do not believe that you will do something like this!” Gu Yue Xin was staring in a daze at his glance that was still not willing to believe her, Su Mu Feng did not know what he should speak either?! He did not want this kind of protection!! He was not willing to believe it even more, the Aunt whom he respected, would unexpectedly kill people, and she also used this kind of cruel method!! This was impossible!!

Avoiding to look at Su Mu Feng whom she loved dearly, Gu Yue Xin shouted in a loud voice: “I did it, you go, ok, go immediately!” Looking towards Dan Yu Lan, Gu Yue Xin suddenly got up, and raised her head to call out: “I have already admitted the guilt, take me to the prison, ok, I do not want to see him!!”

Su Mu Feng felt like he was met by an electric shock, and stared blankly at Gu Yue Xin who was in front of him, his body was suddenly ice cold. Gu Yun discovered it sharply, his eyes suddenly flashed through a trace of superior, gloomy and cold, but they were quickly restored to the original clear and bright expressions.

What one should say and see, everything was already said, Dan Yu Lan waved his hand, he said with a clear voice: “The criminal has already admitted guilt, somebody comes, take and escort her to the prison, wait after I report to the court, then I can convict her crime.”

“Yes.” Two bailiffs walked to the side of Gu Yue Xin, she cooperated with the two bailiffs and left the court hall, but before she stepped out of the door, she could not help to turn around to look at Su Mu Feng who was still standing expressionlessly at the side. The tears in her eyes could not be controlled anymore and they were flowing: “Mu Feng, if you still recognize me as your aunt, return immediately to the Gu’s family house, do you hear me?!” Only in that place, that he could get the best protection, how she regretted it now, she should not let him return to the Su’s family six years ago!!

Being shoved to make her move forward, Gu Yue Xin turned around again and again, and shouted to Su Mu Feng: “Go ah, go!!”

Finally, Gu Yue Xin’s voice disappeared from the Ministry of Justice’s lobby, Su Mu Feng’s eyes were at a loss, his expression was still indifference as before. Ignoring everybody who was in the law court, he was the same like when he came, and left silently, but his footsteps were not free and at ease like usual.

Dan Yu Lan did not make him stay, and let Su Mu Feng leave the law court, waiting until he already walked in a distance, Dan Yu Lan looked one glance at everyone, he sighed and said: “How do you all look at this case?”

This case admittedly had some doubtful points, but Gu Yue Xin was already arrested as the murderer, moreover, she also had the murder weapon on her and it was a match to the deceased’s wounds on the previous cases. They could also say the reason clearly, and she also admitted the guilt voluntarily, as long as she was executed, then this case was completed. The Emperor gave them one month deadline and there was only nine days left. If the murderer was not Gu Yue Xin, they were afraid that the so called real murderer would not be found, then Dan Daren would already commit a crime and be sent to jail!!

The Ministry of Justice’s people did not utter any voice yet, Zhuo Qing did not know what to think anymore, and she was silent as before. Lou Xi Yan was also only listening from the beginning to the end, he did not say any acknowledgment or opposition either, his mysterious appearance did not let people to see what he was thinking!

The probability of the civil case to be pronounced a sentence was high, and this was a criminal case, they absolutely had to pay particular attention to the evidences. All of the evidences must be completed and could not have any careless omission. This removing heart case, if one said that Gu Yue Xin was the murderer, there were too many doubtful points in it!
The inside lobby of the Ministry of Justice was somewhat too quiet, Gu Yun advanced one step, with a clear voice, she said: “I think there are still some doubtful points!”

Dan Yu Lan straightforwardly smiled, and said: “Miss Qing, there is no harm in saying what you think.” He already guessed earlier, she was not the type of person who worked half heartedly, as a matter of fact, he, himself, appreciated this young miss’ reason?!

Gu Yun lightly knitted her eyebrows, turned around to look one glance at Dan Yu Lan, there was only nine days left. His sentence that let her say what she wanted to say, it was extremely possible that they would not be able to catch the murderer, then the person who would be sent to prison would be him! This kind of bearing made her to admire him unavailingly, she would definitely catch this murderer!

Walking to the middle of the hall, Gu Yun brought up her own doubtful points one by one and explained: “First, in order to protect Su Mu Feng not to harass and kill people, this reason was a little far fetched, moreover, even though Gu Yue Xin’s martial art was not weak, but it was not very high either. If it was not due to the deliberate evacuation of half of the night patrol soldiers, she would probably be captured before she could find my room. The Prince manor’s protection was so tight, and the murderer could come in freely, it was definitely not something that Gu Yue Xin could manage. Second, even the method to kill those three people was so proficient, but she could not even say clearly the details about the murders on her own, this absolutely could not be passed by. Third, her manner to admit the guilt anxiously, perhaps, she was indeed protecting a certain person, that person could possibly…… the murderer!”

Cheng Hang took the lead to oppose: “You believe that Su Gongzi was the murderer?! I can not see it!” Su Gongzi’s blood phobia was known by the people in the Su’s family, with regard to this, the Su’s family was still looking for a lot of doctors, this was impossible to feign!!

Gu Yun shrugged her shoulders, and answered: “I did not say that he was the murderer.”

Cheng Hang did not understand even more: “You obviously said that the person whom she wanted to protect was the murderer, then was it not Su Gongzi!?” Strange, this person who was always astute, why she would say something that contradicted herself today!!

Zhuo Qing who was silent all along, finally lifted her head up, her face was anxious and she said: “If the Gu family’s hypnosis method is really so good, Su Mu Feng can probably under this hypnosis method himself, and maybe he, himself does not know the circumstances on why he has killed those people. And if the urge to kill people is because he is touched by a woman, as long as a woman deliberately touches him, he will not be able to control the urge to kill someone!”

This was a so called hypnosis suggestion, if it was really like this, so the real murderer should be that person who gave him the hypnosis!

Unable to control the urge to kill someone? This matter was very fearful, Lu Jin looked towards Zhuo Qing, and urgently said: “This is saying that he has not undertaken his task last time as Gu Yue Xin has interrupted him, if he can not control the urge to kill someone, in that case, there will still a possibility that he will attack the General’s manor again tonight?! Thus, Gu Yue Xin was so panic like that and made him to leave the capital immediately?!”
Once his words came out, everyone’s complexion who was in the law court, changed immediately, Gu Yun seemed to be very relaxed, and she smiled, then with a clear voice, she said: “Very possible! But this is merely our guesses, we have to prepare properly tonight, whether the murderer will come or not, we can only submit to the will of heaven!”

“Let me be the bait this time, ok.” Zhuo Qing suddenly asked, the next second, Lou Xi Yan who was always as steady as the mountain from beginning to end, finally lowly sighed and said: “It will not do!”

Breathing deeply and secretly, Lou Xi Yan’s complexion was restored as before, and calmly answered: “I do not agree, this is too dangerous.” It was merely Gu Yue Xin yesterday, if Ao Tian did not appear in time, Qing Mo might already sustain injuries. Qing-er did not have any martial art, this matter would be too dangerous!

Zhuo Qing anticipated that Lou Xi Yan might not agree, but she did not think that he would be actually determined like this. Zhuo Qing leaned her head to the side of his ear, and said in a low but persistent voice: “Xi Yan, there will be a lot of people who will protect me in secret, I will be alright, I guarantee!”

Lou Xi Yan’s protection towards Zhuo Qing was already very clear, if she really had any accident, he was afraid that nobody could justify it. Dan Yu Lan lightly smiled and advised: “Actually, as long as the murderer enters the General’s manor, he is impossible to escape, it is absolutely not necessary to put both of you in danger!”

Zhuo Qing turned her head around, insistingly said: “No, this time, I must untie this so called riddle of the hypnosis method!”

Lou Xi Yan knitted his eyebrows: “Can other people not able to do it?”

Zhuo Qing lightly shook her head, then Gu Yun straightforwardly said: “If there is really this so called hypnosis method, the person who can untie the riddle will be her only!”

Not only Qing was the most superior forensic investigator for the past few years, she was also a better expert in psychological education in the police department. If Su Mu Feng could really do hypnosis on people, Qing should be able to help him!
*****
The simple black chariot looked like it was advancing to the direction of the Prime Minister’s manor in a hurry, the atmosphere inside the chariot was somewhat rigid. Zhuo Qing was sitting in one corner of the chariot, Lou Xi Yan was sitting on the other corner. Xi Yan turned his head to look towards the outside of the window, and did not pay attention to her. Zhuo Qing was breathing deeply, then she got up relaxingly, and moved to the side of Lou Xi Yan, she lightly pulled the sleeve of his garment, and said lowly: “Xi Yan…… you are angry?”

Slowly turning his head around, Lou Xi Yan faintly answered: “What do you think?!”

He was angry, moreover, he was extremely angry! Zhuo Qing withdrew her hand, did not pull the sleeve of his garment anymore. Letting her acting like a spoiled child to make him promise of her own request, she was impossible, Xi Yan also did not absorb this behavior, ok. After a very long time, she raised her hand to look towards Xi Yan who was always gazing at her, Zhuo Qing explained in a low voice: “I am very sorry to make you worry. But that murderer must be captured, his skill to kill people must be broken, otherwise, those people who have died, can not get any justice. There will be more people whose live will be threatened, I wish to find the real murderer, but I am not only blindly going to do this thing, I have the ability to deal with him! I will deploy everything properly tonight, to achieve an absolute safe plan as much as possible!”

The deep phoenix’s eyes and persistent eyes were just looking face to face like this, Zhuo Qing did not know what Lou Xi Yan was thinking, she could only hope that he was able to feel her persistence that she would accomplish this matter with confidence!!

Looking face to face for a very long time, when Zhuo Qing thought that she could not find any way to speak with him, Lou Xi Yan suddenly lowered his head slightly, a low personal smile came up, Zhuo Qing frowned: “What are you laughing at?”

Lightly holding Zhuo Qing’s sweating hand due to nervousness, Lou Xi Yan smiled and said: “Hand over the deployment for tonight to me, there is still ten more days before our big wedding, I do not want not having a bride.”

Zhuo Qing suddenly opened her eyes big, she did not dare to believe and asked: “You agree!?”

Lou Xi Yan helplessly groaned and said coldly: “Will it be useful if I do not agree?”

“It will be!” Looking at him who already agreed, Zhuo Qing finally had a feeling to joke deliberately, smiled embarrassedly and said: “But I will feel very sad, very broken hearted, my own’s worth will degenerate completely, there is no goal in life……”

“Stop, you say it like this, can I still say no?” After letting her speak, he was done completely and quickly!

Softly pulling her shoulder, and taking her into his bosom, that time when she fell into the water, he already vowed secretly at that time, he would absolutely not make her to face any danger, or receive any tiny bit of injury. But this time, because of her perseverance, he unexpectedly made a compromise, because in her eyes, he already saw the real meaning of that sentence ‘I want to be together with you’! She had her own thought, her own willpower, what he could do for her, he must protect her carefully and should not restrict her, right!

Suddenly thinking something, Zhuo Qing lifted her head, and asked: “You have said that there is only ten more days before our big wedding day?!!” Were there only ten days? How the time went by really quick, it already passed one month In a wink!

Softly raising his eyebrows, Lou Xi Yan tenderly smiled and said: “Why? You do not like it too quick?”

Oh oh~~ The foxy smile that she had not seen for a long time, had returned, Zhuo Qing hurriedly shook her head, and seriously answered: “No, I just feel…… it is too slow!!”
Lou Xi Yan broke into laughter, this girl was able to discern what his thought from his body language more and more!!

Leaning on his bosom, listening to the relaxed and steady heartbeats, Zhuo Qing raised the corner of her mouth in relief, if she did not capture this kind of man sooner, it was really too stupid!

She was very much looking forward to the next ten days for their wedding ceremony!
*****
Yinshi Night (between 3-5 am) at the General’s manor

The day was almost bright, there was no sound of any activity inside the room, the entire General’s manor was a lot more peaceful than in the past. The moonlight was exceptionally bright in this night, the moonlight was shown through the open window, it shined inside the room. Zhuo Qing who was laying on the bed closed her eyes slightly, but she was still able to see the circumstances in the bedroom clearly.

Feeling extremely anxious (the actual words, fear of distant water than can’t save the fire), Lou Xi Yan arranged Mo Bai who was wearing all black clothing to lie down at the top of the beam. Ao Tian was hiding inside the bed curtain, near the back of the wardrobe. Ye Mei, Qian Jing and the people from the Ministry of Justice were waiting to ambush outside the room. Gu Yun insisted to join in the bedroom, Lou Xi Yan was also anxious for Zhuo Qing’s safety, both of them were hiding inside the room together, in the furthest corner of the bedroom. He could see clearly things that could happen from here through the screen, but if they whispered to speak, it was reckoned that one would not be able to hear!

The day was almost bright, could it be that they guessed it wrongly?! Or the murderer was really not Su Mu Feng!

When Zhuo Qing and Gu Yun were guessing in their hearts, there was a black shadow swept past the side of the window, a person with a gray clothing, his face was wearing a silver mask, his meager figure was covered by the moonlight, he appeared without making any sound, his skill was very quick. Mo Bai and Ao Tian held their breaths, hurriedly exercised restraint on their breaths, this person was absolutely an expert, if he discovered them, tonight’s operation to capture him would be ruined.

The gray’s clothing man was standing in front of the window, looking one glance at the woman who should not appear on the bed, his expression was dark. Hesitating for a moment, he turned around wanting to leave.

This would not do, they could not let him run! Otherwise, even if they captured him, she could not solve his hypnosis!

Zhuo Qing suddenly straightened up her body, urgently calling out with a warmth voice: “Mu Feng, is it you?”

The back of the gray’s clothing man was rigid, he did not answer, but he did not leave either.

It was surely him! Zhuo Qing got up, and walked slowly to reach his back, but she did not stand very close, she said with as much gentle voice as possible: “Actually, when I first saw you for the first time, I liked you right away, I had to put a lot of effort tonight to be able to send Qing Mo away, I am actually waiting for you.”

The gray’s clothing man slowly turned his body around, his back was facing the moonlight, he was wearing a silver mask. Zhuo Qing could not see his face, and could not see his expression, she could only hear a deep but clear sexy voice of a man who smiled gently and answered: “You know that I will come?”

This voice…… the tone of voice sounded like Su Mu Feng, but the tone and intonation were completely different!

Zhuo Qing’s mind was tranquil, lightly shaking her head, she advanced one step, and was grabbing his wrist. While she was shaking it lightly, she was pretending to be shy and then she said: “I do not know, but I hope that you will come, the heavens hears my request in the end, you have finally come.”

Gu Yun suddenly turned around to roll her eyes, this woman did not need to be into this show like this, ok, this man who was by her side and was as gentle as the jade according to the legend, his fist was already relaxing and then tightening it again, he had been doing this for several times!!

Zhuo Qing thought that the gray’s clothing man would push her away, this would be Su Mu Feng’s normal reaction. Who would have thought, he not only did not push her away, but also put his hand around her waist, and confined her tightly in his embrace. His face was warmer, darker and he kept it close to her cheek and caressed it repeatedly. His charming voice had a trace of hoarse and scorching breath, a faint sound echoed next to her ear: “You say that you like me?”

The cold mask on his face was caressing, just felt like a snake scales on your cheek, this eerie and frightening feeling were so annoying. Zhuo Qing secretly breathed deeply for several times, then she nodded gently and answered in a low voice: “En.”

Not waiting until she recovered, the man already held her waist and carried her up, then he walked to the front of the spacious bed. Lightly putting her on the bed, soon after, his body was pushing her down immediately. Trapping Zhuo Qing in between his arms, his fingers were circling and enticing her earlobe incessantly, this man could definitely flirt! Was he really Su Mu Feng?!

Stretching her hand out with difficulty, caressing the man’s mask that was on his face, Zhuo Qing with a tender and soft voice said in a mumble repetition: “Mu Feng, I want to look at you!”

Gu Yun carefully looked towards Lou Xi Yan who could be considered very calm, she could only see that his pair of phoenix eyes were cold slightly. Even though it was at night time, Gu Yun could feel the killing intention from the ray within his eyes. She really admired this man’s rational and his profound understanding, this man really loved Qing!

The gray’s clothing man was suddenly grabbing Zhuo Qing’s hand, Mo Bai who was hiding at the top of the beam raised his guard immediately. Zhuo Qing’s heart was also frightened, and she thought that he might be angry. Who should have thought, that the man unexpectedly grabbed the mask on his own, then lifted it open confidently and at ease, then lightly threw it on the bedside at last.

Zhuo Qing could finally see the man’s eyes clearly.

The face before her eyes had a clear angle, unusually handsome, it was really Su Mu Feng’s face, but Zhuo Qing did not dare to be certain, was this person really Su Mu Feng?! During the day, it seemed that his eyes were faintly silver grayish black color, but during the night, they were unexpectedly silver grayish, his eyes were squinting and they looked like a faint smiling, his thin and rosy lips captured the oppressive trick. The cold, graceful and distinct’s manners that he had during the day, it changed into his bearing that was completely indolent like a demonic charm at this moment. This kind of him was really dazzling and it made people’s heartbeats to speed up. Zhuo Qing’s heart grew suspicious at this moment, and begun to question her own previous judgement, if under the hypnosis, it was impossible to transform his own self with this much extent. Then, was he or was he not Su Mu Feng after all, or…… Zhuo Qing pondered into her own train of thought, but the man did not allow her to dodge her thought, his hand gently pinched her chin, and the man quietly asked: “Are you willing to do whatever thing for me?”

Zhuo Qing stared blankly, and nodded her head and smilingly said: “En.”

Gently blowing the tip of Zhuo Qing’s nose, the man was caressing her cheek, while asking in a low voice: “Well behaved girl, are you or are you not willing to give your heart to me?”

The muffled voice was gentle and enticing people’s feeling with fascination, Zhuo Qing lightly raised her eyebrows, and asked: “You want my heart?”

Zhuo Qing’s answer made his expression slightly flashed, but it was very quick, he regained that demonic charm with his smile again: “Are you not willing?”

Their eyes were gazing at each other without blinking now, Zhuo Qing could see his serene and depth eyes that were wandering in the silvery light, they looked like a deep abyss. Holding one’s breath little by little, after experiencing this kind of a very peculiar thing on her own, Zhuo Qing felt that she was absent minded and dizzy for a split second. After a moment, Zhuo Qing nodded her head and said: “Fine.”

The man’s face raised a trace of excitement with a demonic unrestrained smiling expression, he straightened up to sit down, satisfyingly looking at the woman who was motionless. His hand was stretching to her belt familiarly, then her clothing was falling off very quickly. He was watching at the body of the woman who was looking at him, gently and softly smiled: “Do not be afraid, you will be free very quickly.”

The thin blade that was bright and clean was wandering on the skin, the cold sharp knife was playing across the chest, the pretty red color was following along the incision, playing across the waist, then falling into the silk cover.

 

Sian’s notes:
Ok, I have to say that I don’t like how Zhuo Qing was acting in this chapter at all. Yes, I know that she was trying to catch the murderer but I seriously think that this method of trying to catch a murderer by seducing the guy seemed kind of low in my book. 😭😭

All the scenes between Su Mu Feng and Zhuo Qing above were very confusing, even when I was doing the translation. I was like whatttt??? They were just looking around waiting when SMF already removed ZQ’s clothing??? But it makes sense after reading the next chapter.

So technically, it was not a murder since he asked whether or not he could take the woman’s heart. He did ask for their permissions and apparently, the women were “gave” their permission to remove their hearts. πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

Record of Washed Grievances (By Qian Lu) Chapter 99: Gu Yun’s Night Attacked

Over 3,000 words.

This chapter was translated by Sian for https://nuttyisprocrasinating.wordpress.com only and edited by Din2.

 

The moon was not bright tonight.

The inside guest room of the two story small building, the window was half opened, several silhouettes were sitting or standing. There was someone who was not patient, there was someone who was indifferent and speechless, there was someone who was staying tranquilly and calmly, there was someone whose heart was flowing with anger and impatient, nevertheless, their eyes were all staring tightly at the house on the side.

“It is already choushi (1-3 am), there is not any movement either, are you guessing it accurately ah?! Qian Jing was reclining at the window frame, and yawning.

Zhuo Qing was glaring at him, lowly groaned and said: “Shut up!” After waiting for the whole night and it was not effective, she already had enough depression, he was still talking nonsense like this!

Looking at her angry’s appearance, Lou Xi Yan was pulling her hand softly to sit on the bench nearby, he quietly asked: “Are you tired?”

Zhuo Qing shook her head, lightly sighed and said: “I am not tired, on the contrary, you still have to go to the Imperial court tomorrow morning, there is no need to come here to keep watching, it is alright when there is Mo Bai who is accompanying me.” Even though she was not Gu Yun, she would not have any problem enduring for one or two nights. But she did not anticipate that Xi Yan would insist on accompanying her here to keep watch, although he had not been ill for these past days, but his health was always not so good. Her mood was pretty messy, it was actually only because she was worried for him.

Lou Xi Yan answered smilingly: “The Emperor has given an order that I have to provide assistance to Dan Daren, so arresting the murderer is also naturally my responsibility.” Softly embracing her shoulder to let her use his shoulder as her pillow, Lou Xi Yan lowly said: “Close your eyes to take a nap for a little bit, i will wake you up if there is something.”

Leaning on his meager shoulder, it was actually not too comfortable, but his faint warm and clear consideration already made Zhuo Qing’s heart to became warmth.

Ye Mei’s raging flames red dress was still brilliant during the pitch black night time, her cold eyes swept through the two people who were nestling against each other. Not moving her line of sight, the desire in her cold eyes could not help to somewhat disappear. She did not know it that her every movement was only looking at this one expression, then they stopped at the pair of blue eyes that were staying at the corner.

“There is someone!” Qian Jing suddenly called out lowly, all of the people were startled, they immediately went to look outside the window.
They were looking at the house that had been watched by them all night long, one shadow transcended and came out from the inside of the courtyard wall, because of the extremely quick speed, it went to the other side of the street and went away.

Luckily, they were standing at a high elevation, otherwise even if they would guard a few doors, they would not be able to find the person with a black dress.

Qian Jing urgently said: “Chase after or not?!” If they did not chase after, the person would run!

Lou Xi Yan calmly said: “Qian Jing, you go and chase after the person, do not inadvertently alert the enemy, also do not let him break away from your range of sight.” He had not committed a crime, it would be useless if they captured the person now!

“Good.” His speaking voice was just left, Qian Jing’s silhouette tightly followed the person with the black dress.

Afterwards, Lou Xi Yan’s calm and dark eyes were looking at the always tranquil Su’s residence, he said: “Mo Bai, Ye Mei, the two of you continue to stay here, even if there is any movement, one of you will have to stay behind, do not get caught in the ‘lure the enemy away from his territory’ plan.”

Mo Bai with a cold voice answered: “Yes.”

One could not see clearly Ye Mei’s facial expression behind the mask, and could only see that she was very softly nodding her head.

He set it up appropriately, Zhuo Qing did not need to be in trouble, and asked: “We should hurry to go to the General’s manor?” She was anxious for Gu Yun, even though the General’s manor had Su Ling and Ao Tian, but the murderer’s murder technique was peculiar, it always made her think that this matter did not feel too good!

“En!” Knowing that she was anxious, Lou Xi Yan was pulling her hand to escort her in the dark, and to rush hurriedly to the General’s manor.

The General’s Manor

The spacious inside room was arranged very simple with a big bed in the middle, there was a low tea table by the side of the bed, and it did not have any superfluous decoration. Even though the moonlight was not too bright tonight, but there was no layer of light muslin curtain, the circumstances inside the room could barely be seen clearly.

There was a woman who was lying on the bed, her eyes were gently closed, it looked like she was already asleep.

The weather was very hot, both of the wooden windows were opened, the night wind was blowing inside lightly, and coming into the door lightly also, showing a meager shadow.
After the shadow entered the inside quickly, but he did not immediately walk to the front of the woman’s bed, he was rather standing in front of the window for a moment. After a long time, he finally walked to the front of the bed, and stared at the woman who was sleeping peacefully on the bed, and he was standing there again foolishly.

Suddenly, he walked to the side of the low tea table, picked up a cup, and smashed it on the ground, the sound of a broken porcelain cup was very ear piercing during the quiet night.

Gu Yun’s brows were knitted tightly, her eyes that were closed tightly, opened up swiftly, the shadow already wanted to jump out of the window.

“You have just come but already want to leave?!” A clear and cold voice did not sound dazed from just waking up, the shadow sped up his speed. Gu Yun got up and stood on the bed and pounced to the direction of the shadow. She tightly strapped the neck of the black dress’ person from behind, the black dress’ person was in pain, his body was weak. He did not anticipate that this woman was unexpectedly had so much sharp skills, the black dress’ person stood sideways to hit Gu Yun’s abdomen. Gu Yun seized the opportunity to move sideways, and to use her knee to smack the back of the black dress’ person.

The expression of the black dress’ person was dark, his hand caressed his waist, Gu Yun could only see a silvery light that appeared suddenly, she wanted to retreat to evade, but the other hand of the black dress’ person was holding and not letting go of her hand. Not having any opportunity to retreat, Gu Yun secretly clenched her teeth, decided to face forward, and stick close to the black dress’ person, she was a lot shorter, and could maybe dodge the sword.

But she still did not have time to move, and could feel that her waist was tightened suddenly, recovering, she was already encircled on somebody’s bosom. That silvery light was also intercepted by a pair of big hands, the smell of the reeking blood was overflowing, the blood was dropping one by one from the person’s fingers. Gu Yun opened her eyes big to look at the man who was by her side, Ao Tian with a dark clothing and silver hair, his complexion was pale, gloomy and chilly, but he did not appear in pain at all, as if that dripping blood was not his blood. During the dark night time, this emitted a mysterious charm of the man, not only it made Gu Yun somewhat suffered a lapse in concentration, but the black dress’ person was also distracted.

Ao Tian transported power on the hallow of his palm, turned his hand around, the black dress’ person felt the powerful attacking energy immediately. The soft energy was unexpectedly unloaded and came out, the black dress’ person was panic in his mind, and turned around to jump out of the window.

Inside the courtyard was already surrounded by a group of soldiers for a long time ago, the black dress’ person narrowed his eyes slightly, what a good plan to catch a target. It seemed that if they did not lure him into a trap, even if he wanted to enter the General’s manor, it would not be easy, right!

Gu Yun grabbed the silk quilt from the bed, tore it into strips, and wrapped Ao Tian’s hand that was still bleeding incessantly, urgently said: “Are you alright!?”

The red blood quickly contaminated the white silk wrap, Ao Tian withdrew his hand, and answered coldly: “I am alright.”

Finished speaking and without turning his head back, he left the room, Gu Yun felt bewildered, this man’s character was really strange, ok!

Both of them came out of the outside courtyard, nobody paid any attention either, at the corner, a pair of black and serene eyes flashed through a trace of complicated radiance. Clenching his hand on the long sword that was already unsheathed, but his hand was still a step too slow.

Su Ling’s face was expressionless and he withdrew from Gu Yun’s courtyard, just liked he had never appeared there.

Inside the courtyard, there were already countless of torches, they illuminated the small courtyard. The black dress’ person was surrounded by the officers and soldiers, he also understood his own circumstances. No longer resisting, only coldly looking at Gu Yun who was walking toward him

“I underestimated you, small girl.” The black dress’ person started to talk, it was unexpectedly a clear, bright and mellow sound of a woman.

The hand was lightly raised, the black dress’ person confidently tore down the black head covering on her face, a delicate as a flower and refined as a precious jade lotus’ face appeared astonishingly.

“It is you?!”

At the Lobby of the Ministry of Justice

The first daybreak tore down the dark cloud, a new day was already manifested, and turned over a night. The people who were in the lobby did not seem to be tired, for the last two months, the murderer who was using a cruel method to remove the heart to kill, was finally apprehended, since these days, all of the hard works were worth it.

The woman who was kneeling on the ground was tranquil, she was not frightened by the arrest or saying anything, there was a feeling as if she was relieved from a burden. Gu Yun was watching attentively at her beauty and indifferent look for a moment, and then asked: “Why did you want to kill me?”

The woman raised her head, and looked one glance at her, then lowered her head again, with a hateful tone, she said: “Dying was not sufficient for you, a low woman who was trying to seduce Mu Feng!”

Gu Yun’s eyes slightly flashed, her eyes straightforwardly watching at her that did not have any expression on her face, she continued to ask: “Did you also kill the several women in the past?

She did not raise her head this time, only coldly answered: “They deserved to die! Who let all of them to have bad intentions on Mu Feng!”

Dan Yu Lan said with a clear voice: “Gu Yue Xin, are you admitting your guilt now?”

Gu Yue Xin slowly raised her head, looked one glance at Dan Yu Lan who was sitting up high, she did not plan to defend herself and answered: “Since I was captured by you all, I could not really say anything anymore.”

Not right! She had never answered the question about whether or not she killed those people! She did not show any deep loathing towards those women whom she killed. She only had a little loathing, could this make her to use that cruel method to kill those people?!

Walking to the front of Gu Yue Xin and squatting down, Gu Yun stared at her eyes, and said this sentence: “I ask you now, you only need to answer yes or no. Did you do that three heart removal cases in the past? Did you kill those people?”

Gu Yue Xin was not patient: “I already said it a moment ago……”

“Did you or did you not?” Gu Yun interrupted her words, and determined to question closely.

The woman who was in front of her was only about 15-16 years old, but those pair of eyes seemed to like a deep cold water that could not be seen, and made people to lack confidence unconsciously. Secretly clenching her teeth, Gu Yue Xin answered with a firm and loud voice: “Yes!”

Gu Yun slowly got up, and looked towards Zhuo Qing who was watching attentively at her, she lightly shook her head, this woman was lying!!

She determined to admit guilty now, how should they prove that she was lying?

Zhuo Qing coldly and lightly knitted her eyebrows, and asked: “What did you use for the murder weapon?”

“A thin edge of a dagger.” Gu Yue Xin replied quickly this time, and the bailiff delivered the dagger that was searched from her body, and handed it over to Dan Yu Lan.

Zhuo Qing only swept it one glance, she already determined that the length and the thickness of the blade, were identical with the wound.

Dan Yu Lan looked at the murder weapon while he asked: “How did you accomplish murdering them in the private room?” This was something that they could not figure out all along, and the two Qing family’s sisters questioned Gu Yue Xin intensely. It could be shown that they had doubt that she was the murderer, he actually did not believe it either. But the murder weapon was already here, if she was not the murderer, then who was?!

Who would have thought that Gu Yue Xin bursted into loud laughter, then casted a sidelong glance at Dan Yu Lan, sneeringly smiled: “How can this be difficult? Our Gu Yue’s family, besides medical expertise, the most famous skill is hypnosis method. As long as the servant girl who was accompanying was given the hypnosis method, they would be able to help me leave afterwards, then helping me to close the door, but they, themselves would not know anything at all!”

Cheng Hang’s eyes were opened big, untrustingly called out: “Did you use the hypnosis method for those young ladies, so they would look helplessly when their own hearts were cut opened and they could not even budge? This is impossible, ok, is the hypnosis method really this great?!”

That kind of complacent and arrogant that was evolving in one’s heart, it was not a scam, but was it really that great ah?

Zhuo Qing suddenly asked: “You show me how to do it now.”

Her so called hypnosis method, was it or was it not actually just a medical hypnosis?!

Gu Yue Xin did not raise her head, coldly groaned: “I will not do it, this is our family’s Gu Yue supreme feat.”

Was it supreme feat?! Zhuo Qing lightly knitted her eyebrows, sneeringly asked: “When you removed the heart, was the knife went from the left to the right or was the knife went from the right to the left? Did you cut off the blood vessel first and then removed the heart, or did you remove the heart first and then the blood vessel was cut off?”

“I……” Gu Yue Xin was startled, her eyes flashed through a trace of frenetic.

“You did not know it?”

Raising up her head immediately, her face that always maintained a tranquil expression appeared to be unchanged, then she was staring at Zhuo Qing, just liked she wanted to be anxious or certain, Gu Yue Xin urgently said: “Of course, I know!! The knife was from the right to left, then I removed the heart first and then the blood vessel was cut off!”

“Are you sure?”

She was surely making things unnecessarily complicated!! It sure was! Breathing deeply, Gu Yue Xin insisted on saying: “I am sure!”

Once she finished speaking, Lu Jin and Dan Yu Lan’s eyes flashed through a trace radiant immediately, smilingly nodded their heads, Zhuo Qing answered: “It seemed that you did not kill those people. The people who had examined the corpses knew that you were telling a lie!!”

The vein of the deceased was obviously separated before the heart was removed, this was the reason she thought that the murderer’s cutting method was extremely accurate at that time.

Dan Yu Lan’s complexion was slightly changed, Gu Yue Xin hurriedly called out: “I killed those people, but it was a long time ago, I forgot these details, nothing more.”

Forgot? Dan Yu Lan lightly nodded, a solemn, cool and muffled sound echoed: “Very well, since you said this to protect Su Mu Feng who killed those people, then, we would just listen to what Su Gongzi would say, ok!”

Turning around suddenly, there was that white silhouette who was already standing behind her, deeply gazing at her.

“Mu Feng?!” Even though the warm morning light was already entered the law court, and illuminating Gu Yue Xin’s slender body, but the warm sun did not make her feel any trace of warmth, she only felt like she placed her own self in an ice hole.
