Chapter 30: Conspiracy
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
In response to Su Shi Chang’s question, Su Qi Qi nodded firmly. Indeed, this was all true.

She was also doing this in order to get Su Shi Chang to speak.

“In this case, Qi Qi, have you thought about leaving that place before?” Su Shi Chang looked straight at Su Qi Qi, at this daughter even he didn’t understand: “Back then, when you were married at the Magnetic Capital, Daddy was also helpless ah.”

A hint of a sneer flashed through the depths of Su Qi Qi’s eyes, but her head was lowered, covering up her state of mind so Su Shi Chang did not see.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Daughter knows.” Su Qi Qi was forever submissive in front of Su Shi Cheng, seeming to completely conform with the norms of society. Her voice even carried a few hints of grievances.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Her performance was profound.

But Su Shi Chang did not immediately say anything. He seized up Su Qi Qi with a glance: “Qi Qi, I heard that the poison in wang ye‘s body was cured personally by you?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Her heart tightened. Su Qi Qi’s brows slightly knitted and her gaze slightly turned: “It was only luck. Daddy knows that daughter doesn’t have the slightest bit of status in Wang fu, so daughter could only obey Mo Wen Chen.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
In regards to this matter, other than the people in the Wang fu, no one else knows the concrete facts. At this time, she also gave an ambivalent answer with a negative connotation.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lifting his head and stroking the beard on his lower chin, Su Shi Chang’s eyes narrowed. He did not speak for a long time.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Su Qi Qi also stood there quietly. The expression on her face was very gentle and agreeable, as meekly submissive as she was before she married.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Do you wish to return to your mother’s side?” Su Shi Chang asked again.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“I do.” Su Qi Qi replied very simply.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
This point, Su Shi Chang would not suspect about. This daughter, from the time when she was little until now, for the sake of protecting her mother was willing to do anything.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Good, then just listen to Daddy.” A hint of a devious smile flashed through Su Shi Chang’s eyes which turned even more cold, but in less than a moment passed.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
He won’t think about the future of this daughter. Right now, he just wanted to prevent His Majesty from flying into a rage again. If it continues on like this, afraid he wouldn’t be able to keep this prime minister seat of his anymore.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Su Qi Qi nodded.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
He pulled out a letter from his chest and carefully and secretively put it in Su Qi Qi’s hand: “I just want you to hide this letter under Mo Wen Chen’s pillow, or on his body will suffice.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Taking the letter, Su Qi Qi’s lips slightly twitched. Never would have thought that the grand ‘Son of Heaven’ could also think of such low-classed cheap tricks. But, on second thought, perhaps it was her father’s idea.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Putting it into her sleeve, Su Qi Qi calmly nodded.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Not waiting for her to turn to leave, Su Shi Chang actually whispered a sentence: “If you want your mother to stay good and well, you best not try anything funny.” In regards to this daughter, he actually was a bit afraid of her.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Because he couldn’t understand her, so, he couldn’t feel the bottom.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Her shoulders stiffened for a moment. Su Qi Qi then slowly turned back: “Daddy, rest assured.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
That manner indeed made people feel assured.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
And as Su Qi Qi left, even though she walked very steadily, her heart was thrown into a lump of chaos. She suddenly didn’t know what she should do anymore. Mo Wen Chen was already aware of everything, she did not have any roads to retreat to.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
But thinking of what Su Shi Chang said, Su Qi Qi, for no solid reason, started to worry about her mother again.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
When it came time to leave Xiang fu, the sun had already set over the western hills. The jade carriage from the Imperial Palace impatiently waited outside the fu.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Only meeting for a short day, Su Qi Qi was a bit reluctant to part as she hugged Xiao Die. Don’t know how long this parting will last. Not to mention, right now whether she will live or die is hard to tell, everything is hanging in the balance.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Child, don’t cry anymore.” Xiao Die also hugged Su Qi Qi, wanting to say something several times but stopped each time. Drawing her hand closer with force she said: “Remember, you must live well.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Nodding firmly, Su Qi Qi also helped Xiao Die wipe away the tears in the corners of Xiao Die’s eyes.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
At this time she felt that she was really useless, not being able to properly protect her mother.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Qi Qi, do you still have the jade pendant?” Xiao Die suddenly asked: “Remember, you must not lose it no matter what.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Su Qi Qi pressed her chest and agreed unreservedly.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Her heart for some reason kept feeling uneasy, yet she didn’t know how to comfort Xiao Die.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Before leaving, she just said one sentence: “You must be careful.”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Inside the Imperial Palace.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Mo Wen Chen and Mo Wen Xuan were drinking together. Both of them looked very spirited. They hunted for sport an entire day, the harvest was abundant.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Furthermore, Mo Wen Chen purposefully yielded a few beasts to Mo Wen Xuan, allowing Mo Wen Xuan’s mood to settle somewhat.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
But even so, his eyes still cannot tolerate this imperial younger brother, this legend in the people’s hearts. As long as he exists for a day, he, as the magnificent great Yan nation’s emperor, will be shorter in comparison.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
If there wasn’t Mo Wen Chen, he, Mo Wen Xuan, would also be a legend-like existence.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Unfortunately, Mo Wen Chen always existed.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Seeing Su Meng Ru and Su Qi Qi approaching, the ministers all started to discuss spiritedly, but their voices were very quiet.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lifting his eyes to look. Mo Wen Chen’s gaze stopped on the pair of eyes that have evidently cried on Su Qi Qi’s face. Lightly shaking his head, he secretly clenched his fist, his heart actually feeling a trace of heartache.

However, very soon he pushed down the emotion in his heart. What he wanted wasn’t a weak woman like this that would collapse at the first blow. A woman that can stand at his side must be able to bear things that ordinary people cannot bear to endure.

After the banquet, Su Qi Qi and Mo Wen Chen returned to Bie Courtyard. Neither of the two spoke, it was quiet.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
In the flickering candlelight, flickering between light and dark, Su Qi Qi’s face was a bit gloomy. From the moment she left Su fu, she hadn’t said a word. She kept feeling that her heart was sinking heavily.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
She doesn’t want to become enemies with Mo Wen Chen, but she was also afraid her mother would be implicated.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
But even if she really gave Mo Wen Chen a helping hand, would it definitely mean that she and her mother continue living? She felt extremely conflicted, her palm was full of sweat.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
It was the depths of the winter season, yet she felt extremely hot.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Mo Wen Chen who was sitting to the side was a face of indifference. His facial features exuded a slight atmosphere of cold and detachment, no expression could really be seen. His pupils were serene and deep, his lips pinched. Without a word and without looking at Su Qi Qi, he just leaned at the head of the bed like that.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Just by lifting her head up she could see Mo Wen Chen’s remarkably beautiful face, kneaded keenly and bright at the same time.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Her hand slowly reached into her sleeve. Su Qi Qi softly closed her eyes. A long while later, she opened her eyes again. She knows, she simply didn’t have the means to go against Mo Wen Chen. Not mentioning her own each and every move, probably everything Mo Wen Xuan wants to do, he is also very clear about.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
A man like this, who would dare to be his enemy!
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Not to mention her own heart has always wanted to help him.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Finally taking that letter from her sleeves, she got up, lightly walked to Mo Wen Chen’s front and placed it in his hand.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
At this time, Mo Wen Chen finally hooked his lips, seeming to be smiling, just that the smile was a bit cold.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Causing Su Qi Qi’s heart to sink and sink again.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Rest assured, I will protect the safety of your mother.” Mo Wen Chen opened the letter, put it on the candle flame and burnt it to ashes. Finally, he slowly opened his mouth, at least giving Su Qi Qi a promise.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Covering the candle flame, an unchanging black chang pao, a slender tall body figure, cold expressionless eyes; this Mo Wen Chen was frightening, carrying an inauspicious and vicious air.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Perhaps he did think of Mo Wen Xuan’s strategy, but when he really saw it, his heart would still hurt.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
After all, they blood related brothers with the same father but different mothers.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Cooking beans burning beanstalks, the beans in the cauldron sob.  They were originally born of the same root, why must they cook so urgently.

This is a 7 steps poem. Expanded paraphrase of the poem is “putting beans into the cauldron to cook, the fuel that’s being burned below are bean stalks. The beans in the cauldron are very sad, they were originally both born of the same root, why must they rush to kill each other? It is an allusion to brothers hurting one another, one trying to harm the other, the other being harmed.

A stone on Su Qi Qi’s heart finally fell down. She believed Mo Wen Chen can carry out what he said and also believes he has this power.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
She collected up all the emotions and set up the bed. Su Qi Qi prepared to rest on the chair but when she lifted her head, she saw that Mo Wen Chen had already laid down on the long chair, his eyes lightly closed.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Her heart gradually cleared, an inexplicable excitement rose in her heart. It was also a night of good sleep.
