Chapter 4: Caught in the Act on the Bed
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
In the room of the second floor in the inn, Ting Yue watched with wide eyes the Yao Mo Wan who was busying back and forth, and finally could not resist opening her mouth.

“Third Miss …… how?”
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“How could I be so clearheaded, right? In the Fragrant Harmony Courtyard I accidentally took a fall, but thanks to it my head was knocked back to normal. But to be able to protect my purity, it was only thanks to Liu Xing. Ting Yue, who was it that beat you to this point? Why are you afraid of high mo mo seeing me? If I remember correctly, this is high mo mo…… was personally selected by jie jie from within the palace to specifically serve mother!” Yao Mo Wan’s complexion was grave as she spoke suspectedly.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“It’s better? If it’s better then it’s great! Wuuwuuu …… it’s great! Miss, you can’t return to Yao Xiang fu! News came from the palace, something has happened to Eldest Miss, afraid by now she has already…… high mo mo was chosen by Eldest Miss, but was Second Miss’s trusted aid. For all these years, high mo mo has always followed Big Madam’s orders, adding poison in Second Madam’s medical soup! Last night this servant inadvertently caught high mo mo sprinkling a lot of black powder into Second Madam’s bowl so this servant was tied up by her and locked into the firewood room. She even said that she had already sold Miss into the brothel. In a fit of anger, this servant ferociously attacked her so she had this servant hanged…… Miss, let’s leave the Imperial City. If Big Madam finds you, she definitely won’t let you off!” Ting Yue sobbed quietly as she recounted what happened in a choked voice.

High mo mo…… Yue er, I can’t leave! Being dumb and foolish for ten years, I have never done anything for mother before. And now that mother has tragically passed, as her daughter, if I don’t take revenge for her, I do not deserve to be called her daughter. There are one hundred-twenty banknotes here, Mo Wan thanks you for taking care of mother all those past years, you can go.” Yao Mo Wan pressed the banknotes into Ting Yue’s hand, speaking solemnly.

Looking at the banknotes in her hand, Ting Yue stared for only a moment before pushing them back into Yao Mo Wan’s hand.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“If Miss does not go, Yue er will not go either! Second Madam has saved Yue er before, now the Second Madam has met a tragic death Yue er naturally has to get revenge for her! From now on Yue er will follow Miss. Living will be living together, dying will be dying together!” Ting Yue spoke with grief and solemnly vowed.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“I promise you, we will not die.” Yao Mo Wan took Ting Yue’s hand, her clear voice carried a firmness that made people unable to hold doubts.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Miss, then what do we do now? Go back to lao ye to expose Big Madam and high mo mo‘s evil doings?” Ting Yue lifted up her small face and asked naively.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Yue er, remember this carefully, in this world, we can not rely on anyone to help us seek justice. If we want revenge, we can only rely on ourselves.” Flat ice-like coldness showing   on her enchanting unique mien, Yao Mo Wan’s beautiful pupils held a faint chill, then she continued to pull Ting Yue closer.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Let me ask you, how has the relationship between Big Madam and Father been these past years?” The first step for revenge is to have a footing in Yao Xiang fu.  If she didn’t have Yao Xiang fu to rely on, how was she to enter the palace again! And with her current identity, if she wished to return to Yao Xiang fu, she must first obtain Yao Zhen Ting’s protection.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“This Yue er isn’t very clear about it, but Yue er know one thing. That is, outside Big Madam is supporting an opera singer, it seems to be Virtue Cloud Performance Troupe’s current protege, named Lou Yu Xin. Big Madam often takes advantage of the periods when lao ye goes to court to go to Virtue Cloud House to meet privately with Lou Yu Xin. This matter many people in the residence knows, it’s completely true!” Ting Yue confidently declared.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Lou Yu Xin……” Yao Mo Wan peach lips moved, in the depths of her eyes a radiant light flashed.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Yue er, right now I still can’t reveal myself so help me carry out two tasks. First, secretly return to Xiang fu and bring Liu Xing here to see me.The second thing …… ” Yao Mo Wan leaned into Ting Yue’s side, whispering softly, then handed over the entire sum of banknotes that Yao Tu had given her to Ting Yue.

At seven the next day, according to his usual habit, Yao Tu walked out the fu doors and looked towards the large road to the east. Not seeing Yao Zhen Ting’s carriage yet, he turned around to exhort the two retainers.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“I heard recently some degenerate mobs of people have came from the Imperial City and would from time to time loot things. You should keep your eyes open and be attentive, don’t cause lao ye alarm!” Just as Yao Tu was in the midst of speaking, suddenly from around the corner came a  man dressed in theatrical costume running.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“You are Steward Yao, right! It…… it’s bad! Madam Yao has had an accident!” The man’s forehead was covered with sweat, both hands were pressed on his knees as he heaved for breath.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Who are you?” The color of Yao Tu’s eyes were slightly heavy as he guardedly looked at the man, asking with suspicion.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Replying Steward Yao, this little one is a performer. Madam Yao exposed her great wealth and was surrounded by that mob. Right now the Virtue Cloud Performance Troupe place is a complete mess, even the troupe leader could not control it and sent me to tell the fu of the news and ask you to hurry and save people. That mob only recognize money, they don’t understand anything about any Xiang fu Madam!” The man’s panicked voice urged.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Yao Tu listened as was just planning to ask for clarification when he heard a sound come from behind him.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“What has happened?” Inside the sedan chair carried by four people, Yao Zhen Ting lifted the curtain and asked in a cold voice.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Replying lao ye, this actor said Madam had met with trouble at the Virtue Cloud Performance Troupe’s performance. This old servant will immediately send people to rescue Madam!” Yao Tu reported honestly.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Call a few extra people, lao fu wishes to personally see what eyeless mob actually dares to rob this lao fu!” Yao Zhen Ting spoke with a cold sneer then let the curtain drop. The palanquin bearers naturally understood its meaning and simultaneously started moving towards the Virtue Cloud Performance Troupe. Although Yao Tu had doubts, but there was no time to consider, he hastily called several dozen guards and followed.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
In the palanquin, Yao Zhen Ting toyed with a deep green ornamental thumb ring, his gaze remote and cold. Today at court, he already verified that the news Su Luan had sent from within the palace was true. These days the four great imperial families of Wang, Xie, Yu, and Huan glared like tigers watching their prey. The harem positions of imperial consort were all occupied by these four clans. Originally his own daughters, one became empress while another was an imperial consort so he had been secure in the knowledge that he had backing. But it looks like whether the Yao fu will thrive or decline will solely depend on Yao Su Luan now. Were it not for that, he would not need to make this trip to deliberately curry favor by fawning on Dou Xiang Lan.

Within a deep alley.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Liu Xing led the man wearing the theatrical costume just now over.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Have you carried everything out?” Ting Yue dubiously looked towards Liu Xing. Only after seeing Liu Xing nod did she hand over the remaining banknotes to the man.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Rest assured, this little one has already emptied an entire bottle of aphrodisiac into the wine. Reckon right now Lou Yu Xin and Madam Yao has forgotten everything and are blowing hot and cold, passionately having intercourse! On usual days when Madam Yao meets with Lou Yu Xin, all the members of the Virtue Cloud Troupe will tactfully withdraw, finding some excuse to go out for a stroll, so right now at the Virtue Cloud House there’s only the two of them. Not to mention this little one has already unlocked the Virtue Cloud House’s doors, also……” The man still wanted to talk, but was cut off by Ting Yue.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Take these and leave the Imperial City. You probably know your fate if Master Xiang finds you.” Ting Yue reminded with good intentions.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“I know, I know. This little one will leave now! Won’t even delay a quarter of an hour!” The man held the banknotes and happily walked out of the alley.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
After the man left, Ting Yu and Liu Xing hurried back to the inn.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Ting Yue, even now I still feel like it’s a dream, has the Third Miss really become intelligent?” Liu Xing swept through the crowd, speaking in a low voice. Unconcealable excitement passed through his eyes.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“If Third Miss had not came up with this plan, I wouldn’t have believed it either. This time Big Madam really is out of luck, it really is to the satisfaction of everyone!” As Ting Yue and Liu Xing spoke they veered off into a small lane, making a beeline for the Virtue Cloud House.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
The Virtue Cloud House was located on the east side of Xing Hua street. During the day it’s usually not open, they only start setting up the stage during the night. When Yao Tu arrived at Virtue Cloud House he felt the accident seemed queer, but lao ye was already here and that Dou Xiang Lan’s bossy temper has already caused him much suffering before so right now, he naturally felt he shouldn’t care too much about other people’s business.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lao ye, we’ve arrived at the Virtue Cloud House.” The sedan chair was set down and Yao Tu moved up to lift the curtain. Yao Zhen Ting lifted his head to look at the two story building to his left, his brows faintly creased and he hesitated for a moment, but still walked down.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Didn’t you say there was a mob causing trouble?” Yao Zhen Ting walked passed the palanquin to the front of the Virtue Cloud House and asked with suspicion. To the side, Yao Tu understood and gave the Virtue Cloud House door a push, and heard a creaking sound. The door was actually unlocked.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Yao Zhen Ting didn’t even think before walking in. Yao Tu was currently commanding the guards to follow but was stopped in the next second by Yao Zhen Ting.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Leave them outside, you come in with lao fu!” The moment Yao Zhen Ting entered he had heard the faint sound of Dou Xiang Lan’s wanton wild laughter, so he stopped the guards and only called for Yao Tu to follow.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Entering the Virtue Cloud House, inside was constructed in a open view spacious style. Other than some chairs and tables, there was only the stage in the middle which was decorated gorgeously that was pleasing to the eye.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Yu Xin …… Don’t you miss me?” Yao Tu had only entered when he hear Dou Xiang Lan’s coy voice coming from the second floor.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lao ye ……” Yao Tu looked towards Yao Zhen Ting, seeking instructions.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“You stay here, don’t allow anyone to enter.” Yao Zhen Ting spoke in a low tone, although his facial color did not change, but within the depths of his eyes were surging wild waves. Yao Tu did not speak and guarded the door silently.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Now, Yao Zhen Ting took started striding forward, violently step by step walked up the staircase. That lewd voice was becoming more and more clear and distinct.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Of course I miss, even in my dreams I long for Dou Xiang Lan you, but sadly Yu Xin is only a small actor and does not match with your status. Otherwise Yu Xin would definitely take you and escape to somewhere faraway, never having to act sneakily like this again…….” After three rounds of wine, Yu Xin who was in the theatre box of the inner floor felt his whole body’s blood was boiling. With one tug he pulled Dou Xiang Lan into his embrace, his hand impatiently kneaded Dou Xiang Lan’s chest which was plump to the point that it seemed on the verge of leaking as he spoke false words.

“You little darling, always saying such pleasing things. Yu Xin, kiss me……” The sky’s lightening aroused the earth’s fire. Dou Xiang Lan only felt that her heart itched unbearably, her fervent body occasionally twisted and rubbed in Yu Xin’s embrace.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Yu Xin’s each and every word will prove true under the sun and moon ……” Lou Yu Xin was a man with a woman’s appearance, a powdered face and peach lips, could still be considered to be a beautiful man. At this moment, Lou Yu Xin unbridledly hauled down Dou Xian Lan’s outer garments and both lips fiercely kissed Dou Xiang Lan’s snow white jade neck. Due to the aphrodisiac, the two didn’t spend too much time on the prelude and soon moved on to the main act.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Uh …… Yu Xin, hurry, oh—” Lou Dou Xiang was teased by Yu Xin to the point that she could not think straight. Her hair was dishevelled and let down, both her hands wandered all over Lou Yu Xin’s powerful sexy body, extremely delighted.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Dou Xiang Lan’s voice coupled with the aphrodisiac in his body made Lou Yu Xin act as if he was injected with chicken blood, fiercely grabbing Dou Xiang Lan’s jade legs and thrusted with all his strength.

Being injected with chicken blood was one of the old chinese treatments. It usually causes emotional excitement.

Through the gap in the theatre box, Yao Zhen Ting took in the full scene of the charming spring scenery, his deep pupils flashed scarlet red with bloodthirstiness, blue veins bulged in his forehead, inside his sleeves, both his hands clenched into fists. The jade ornamental thumb ring finger was extremely painful but Yao Zhen Ting did not move. At this very moment he really wanted to rush in there and take this pair of dog male and female’s lives, but, he restrained himself.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Yao Zhen Ting’s thin lips pinched, his body due to anger gradually began trembling. With a ‘kacha’, the sound of the thumb ring breaking and falling onto the ground didn’t seem to affect the two passionate figures inside the box at all. Then, abruptly, Yao Zhen Ting suddenly turned around and step by step left the theatre box, his footsteps descending the stairs were unusually heavy.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
Lao ye……” Seeing Yao Zhen Ting’s deathly pale face, Yao Tu approached worriedly.
Please do not host elsewhere but MBC and Yumeabyss
“Not a word is to be leaked about today’s matter, go.” His low voice carried a bone piercing chill as Yao Zhen Ting coldly instructed, then left the Virtue Cloud House first. Yao Tu subconsciously glanced at the second floor balcony, his brows faintly knitted for a moment, then hurriedly followed out.
