Chapter 606: It’s her
“No more! No more! This subordinate admits defeat.”
Zhui Feng jumped back and circled around. He was completely out of breath, panting as he stood there.
Chu Shao Bai was also drenched in sweat.
After this fight that they both engrossed themselves in, both sides felt the depression in their hearts fade quite a bit.
“Your highness, this subordinate still needs to report to the emperor. If you want to teach this subordinate a lesson, wait until next time.” Zhui Feng thought of his task and his heart filled with regret. How could he have forgotten his priorities and strangely fought against King Jing An, as well as being delayed for so long!
No wonder King Jing An and Na Mu Cuo called him a fool, he really was stupid!
He was filled with regret as he prepared to leave, but Chu Shao Bai suddenly grabbed his arm and said in a deep voice, “Nothing will happen to her.”
“Who? Nothing will happen to who?” Zhui Feng was stunned before he finally reacted. Turning around to look at Chu Shao Bai, he said in a dazed voice, “You’re saying that the Princess Consort will not be in any danger?”
Chu Shao Bai nodded and said, “Yes. She was willing to leave with Na Mu Cuo, so she will have a method of protecting herself. She would not deliberately place herself in danger.”
Zhui Feng looked on in a daze and he couldn’t help scratching his ears, “Your highness, has this subordinate heard wrong?”
“You didn’t hear wrong.” Mo Chuan softly said, “After Na Mu Cuo poked your acupuncture point, I secretly entered the backyard and hid behind the tree wall. I wanted to find an opportunity to save her, but I realized that even after she knew the other side’s status as the East Qin Crown Prince, her words and expression did not change at all and she wanted to stay by his side.”
“What? She…..What if her heart changed!” Zhui Feng’s face fell as he said in a bitter voice, “Humph, this kind of woman’s heart changes fast. When she saw the East Qin Crown Prince with his heroic appearance, good martial arts, and distinguished status, her heart had change, throwing away all the good things the emperor has done for her to the back of her head. Your highness, this kind of girl is not worthy of being treated well by you and the emperor……”
He suddenly felt Chu Shao Bai’s anger filled eyes coldly sweeping over him, making him swallow all the words he wanted to say.
The slap he had suffered not long ago still stung, but he steeled his heart and shouted, “Your highness, even if you beat this subordinate to death, this subordinate still has to say that she is a girl not worthy of your love! Just let her and the East Qin Crown Prince fly away, this subordinate will tell the emperor that she…..”
“Zhui Feng, shut up! You’re not allowed to say another bad word about her! She is not the kind of person that you say she is. She is willing to brave this danger and leave with the East Qin Crown Prince because she is doing this for our West Chu! She is doing this for the competition three days from now!”
Chu Shao Bai couldn’t hold it in any longer and blurted it out.
He wanted to continue keeping this secret, but he couldn’t stand Zhui Feng belittling her and shaming her.
Zhui Feng’s chin fell down when he heard this and he tightly knit his brows as he slowly said, “Your highness, you know that this subordinate is stupid. Can you explain this and tell me how this matter relates to our West Chu? Also why is this related to the competition three days from now?”
Chu Shao Bai said in a deep voice, “Do you know who our West Chu will be sending out to compete with the East Qin Crown Prince in ‘reading steles on horseback’ three days from now is?”
Zhui Feng shook his head, “This subordinate does not know. Didn’t the emperor have your highness invite an expert to participate in this match? Could it be your highness couldn’t invite them?”
Chu Shao Bai said this and then closed his mouth.
