Arranging The Battle Arrays
The sound of her words had just left out, there was a muffled and slight magnetic voice sound that asked: “Why?”
The two people turned to look at the sound of the voice, it was Xuanyuan Yi who was wearing a full soldier attire on his whole body. Taking his General’s helmet and putting it casually on the wooden table, Xuanyuan Yi directly walked to Murong Shu Qing’s front. She finally woke up, and he could finally see her shallow smile, these past few days, it was impossible to get rid of his jittery because of her being unconscious and she became somewhat thinner.
Lu Yi put another wooden chair next to Murong Shu Qing’s bed, so Xuanyuan Yi could sit by Murong Shu Qing’s side, and gave a new steep tea to Xuanyuan Yi. Then, she quietly retreated to the side of the bed and did not disturb their discussions.
“Shu Qing, your family’s Lu Yi is really a considerate and good girl.” Pei Che was drinking the tea, while the sound of him clicking his tongue mockingly could be heard. When he came in, she did not let him sit next to Murong Shu Qing ah, was it possible that it was because Xuanyuan Yi had a status?!
Lu Yi lowered her head, her heart was feeling apprehensive, this Pei Gongzi was really annoying. Xuanyuan Gongzi was Miss’ sweetheart, it was with great difficulty that the two people had some feelings, what was the commotion that he was trying to do groundlessly ah!!
Murong Shu Qing also secretly had an injured expression, this Lu Yi’s consideration really made her unable to know whether to laugh or cry. Xuanyuan Yi’s gaze was restlessly fixed on her, so she did not have any alternative but to return with a smile, otherwise, what could she do?!
Fortunately, Xuanyuan Yi’s eyes that looked like a deep ocean, did not always stare at her, after he saw that she was alright, Xuanyuan Yi sat down on the wooden chair and drank a mouthful of hot tea, then he continued asking: “Qing-er, why do you think Cang Yue will start the war very quickly?”
Murong Shu Qing drank some tea, her vitality was also better, so she tranquilly answered: “The person who injured me, was Hong Ming.”
“Yan Rui’s new Monarch?” Murong Shu Qing said it plainly, but Pei Che was startled and the tea that was on his hand almost spilled out. This was not a small matter. A Monarch from one country left its own country, this was not a trivial matter, moreover, he actually appeared during this sensitive time and location!
Murong Shu Qing nodded her head and said: “En, moreover, it was also possible that the people who destroyed the army provisions, was also Hong Ming.” Even though they had not found the people who destroyed the army provisions, but looking at the circumstances, the style and the skill, they would be the Jiang Hu people’s doings. And Hong Ming and the Jiang Hu’s people were related very much, so he was the best person who was able to do this.
Listening to her words, Pei Che and Xuanyuan Yi looked one glance at each other, the two people wrinkled their eyebrows tightly. They did not think that the Yan Rui’s Monarch who just ascended into the throne, would unexpectedly come and stir up this pool of muddy water. This famous Hong Ming’s name seemed to be an ambitious wild wolf now. Pei Che shook his head, while he sighed and said: “Strictly speaking, this time Cang Yue and Yan Rui are planning to unite together, one is in the light and the other is in the dark, but both are attacking my Dong Yu?! If this is really like this, this time is sure to be extremely vicious and dangerous, and exceptionally difficult also.” One You Xiao was already difficult to handle, and adding Hong Ming, there was no doubt that this was a disaster on top of another disaster.
Xuanyuan Yi was only holding the teacup in his hand all along, and did not say anything, the black armor that was on his body, emitted a long blue light, it was cold and imposing. Especially those deep eyes, they were showing a firm and persistent radiance, they made people unable to help but to believe in him, follow him, this might be that so-called his own personal charm.
Murong Shu Qing took the cold tea and gave it to Lu Yi, her one hand supported her own self to sit up, Xuanyuan Yi who looked like he was still pondering, suddenly reached out to support her shoulder, he was afraid that she would tear her wound again. After helping her to sit up, he helped her to fasten his outer clothing properly, then Xuanyuan Yi returned to sit on the wooden chair again.
His smooth movement, not only made Murong Shu Qing was startled, but Pei Che who was sitting on the side, also had a startled face, when did he ever see Xuanyuan Yi was helping anybody to tidy up the clothing gently like this??
Xuanyuan Yi’s appearance looked very normal, and it seemed that she was the one who felt uncomfortable. So Murong Shu Qing softly coughed, and said to Pei Che: “What you said, was a fact, but in my opinion, it should not be difficult and dangerous like that.”
Pei Che showed a smile on his face, and seriously asked: “Oh, Shu Qing, what good plan do you have?” Could it be this was the reason that she came here?
Xuanyuan Yi who just sat down, was also very curious, what kind of scheme did Murong Shu Qing try to explain?!
These two big men were just staring at her like this, with their curious and longing appearances, it made Murong Shu Qing wanted to smile a little, but now was not the time to smile. Holding back her smile, Murong Shu Qing seriously answered also: “You flatter me with this good plan. For many years, the intention of Cang Yue’s Emperor is always to rule the four oceans in the whole world, and Yan Rui’s Monarch, Hong Ming, even though he has always been seen as a virtuous and modest person by the people, but he desires the whole world in his heart also. The two people’s collaborations like this, are certainly because of a scheme to get a huge benefit, and the strengths of both sides are indispensable. The reason why Hong Ming is in the dark, is because he is nameless, and his country has just started a new so they should recover from the internal chaos first and calm his people to build the country, otherwise he will not be able to build his image as a virtuous Emperor. In that case and at this moment, if there is any rumors about domestic issues from all around Yan Rui, that the economy is in chaos, those powers that have just been suppressed with great difficulty, will start to threaten again. Tell me now, will Hong Ming have a mood to discuss any cooperation with Cang Yue anymore? His backyard is in fire, and he does not have any capital to cooperate with Cang Yue again. Then ___” After speaking those long words, Murong Shu Qing was somewhat feeling weak and slightly gasping.
Pei Che closely continued on her words, and smilingly said: “At that time, their so-called coalitions will collapse by itself, Cang Yue will be difficult to achieve anything without Yan Rui’s supports. But it is definitely not easy to make Yan Rui’s country to be in a chaotic situation?!” Even though Yan Rui had just started a new, but the previous Emperor did things right when he ruled the country, so Yan Rui could be regarded as a powerful country at this time, how could one cause a disorder?
Under Lu Yi’s light stroking, Murong Shu Qing felt a little bit better slowly, and she weakly smiled and said: “Give this to me!”
“Shu Qing, you?” Pei Che was startled and sighing at Murong Shu Qing’s power, could she really be able to accomplish this?? Secondly, why did Murong Shu Qing want to do this? According to his observation towards her, she was a casual and elegant person, how could she want to be involved in this muddy water? Was it because Xuanyuan Yi who was having a real difficult time?!
This was also the thing that Xuanyuan Yi did not understand, even though he only met her for only a short time period, then she lost consciousness, and just woke up today. But he felt that she seemed to be somewhat different, but he could not tell where the difference was.
Murong Shu Qing was deeply breathing, and she only answered with this sentence: “I want to make him properly pay for what he did.” Her wounded shoulder was still painful up until now; Zi Yuan’s injury was also painful. She did not know if there would be any residual effects in the future or not, moreover, the experience that she encountered this time, might also completely frighten her spirit; furthermore, Mo Can, she still did not know whether he was dead or alive up until now. These were all caused by Hong Ming, so how could she let him go free and unfettered in this lifetime after he did all of those things?!
What did happen during this journey after all? That made Murong Shu Qing so angry like this? Pei Che wanted to ask, but Murong Shu Qing clearly did not want to answer his questions, and she continued to say: “But this needs some time, at the minimum, it will take two months to see the result, so the next step will have to depend on you guys. If you guys are unable to support and actually lose Lin Feng Guan border, the morale of the army will take a big hit, Xuanyuan’s legend will also be broken. Even if their coalition is defeated, it will be very hard for the army to turn the tide.”
“It will not be easy if they want to win.” Even if Cang Yue and Yan Rui had a coalition, it was somewhat troublesome, but he did not have any fears either. In the battlefield, there was no enemy who was not afraid of his, Xuanyuan Yi’s name.
Speaking about this war, Pei Che asked: “Oh right, Xuanyuan, what is the result of your investigation about the situation today?!” He did not know whether or not it was the same as the conclusion from his investigation last night.
Xuanyuan Yi’s elegant eyebrows gently wrinkled this time, he nodded his head and answered: “You did not misjudge the situation last night, it looks like they certainly arranged the battle arrays. But the situation was unusual, I have not seen what kind of battle arrays are those.” Making use of the battle arrays during the fight, were always normal in the battlefield, but in general, the battle arrays used many people or used weapons to accomplish a large-scale fight like this. But this was not many, and the arrangement that You Xiao showed, was unusual even more, for a moment, he did not have any idea about the arrangement.
Xuanyuan Yi’s interpretation was the same as his thinking, so Pei Che’s face also showed some distressed and he said: “I also think it is strange, the battle arrays are very big, it seems flawless, and there is no rules at all.” Suddenly, Pei Che changed the topic, and asked towards Murong Shu Qing: “Shu Qing, what opinions do you have?”
“Me?” Murong Shu Qing stared blankly, when they started to speak about the battle arrays, she did not seriously listen to them. She was already very tired, besides, she absolutely did not understand anything regarding this mysterious stuff ah?! Or did Pei Che think that she was a knowledgeable person in this?! Helplessly, she spread her hands, and Murong Shu Qing smilingly said: “I do not understand anything in regard to the army fighting battle, battle arrays, magic arrays, and so on.”
Murong Shu Qing was just about to take the tea that Lu Yi just steeped again, but Xuanyuan Yi’s big hand stopped the tea. Looking that she had a tired appearance, Xuanyuan Yi got up and said: “Alright, do not drink anymore, you are tired so you should rest. We will go out.”
Pei Che also smilingly said: “Yes ah, Shu Qing, you rest properly.”
The two people, one upfront and the other one on the back, came out of the tent. Murong Shu Qing looked at their expressions, they certainly had not finished their conversations, but she was really tired also, so tired that it swept her away. Let it be, let them worry about this!
I get curious on why the country Yan Rui (in the earlier chapters) uses Yan Yin in the newer chapters so I checked the character for Rui & compared it with the character for Yin. They’re very close. Hehehe… Only one stroke different on the bottom. The character Rui is 芮, which means small while the character Yin is 茵, which means mattress. Lol… One stroke different and the meaning and the pronunciation are totally different.
