"Are we going back to Chu Xiang Fu?" Watching them taking a route completely different from the one they took coming here, Chu Fei Yang's words earlier resounded in her mind. Yun Qian Meng asked plainly while putting down the curtains of the carriage.
"Meng'er aren't you curious about the things that will happen soon?" Chu Fei Yang pulled her to sit down beside him. Seeing her hands were turning cold due to that cold wind which blew past them, he tightly took hold of them, warming them up in the palm of his hands.
Having heard his question, Yun Qian Meng just shook her head, "It's merely because in this world, every cause has its effect."
At that time, if was not for the wicked heart of Su Qing that brought negative effects to her reputation, it would not plant such an evil seed like Zhao De. When his power had blossomed, he started to take his revenge against those who had harmed him before. But since Su Qing no longer existed, which was why he had vent out his grudge towards Yun Ruo Xue.
And if it had not been for Yun Ruo Xue's greediness for high position and great wealth, as well as desiring the status of being a Ce Fei, how could Zhao De be able to seize such opportunity to take his revenge?
"But I never understood how Ruo Xue who was the one who performed the wedding ritual with Chen Wang? In this matter, did the person with Chen Wang get switched many times?" Yun Qian Meng was reminded clearly of the time when she herself had obtained Chen Wang's plot and plans from his cook, then sent them over to Xi Lin.
Soon after, Xi Lin had followed her arrangement and seized the opportunity of putting up a fire to rescue her.
Then the days that followed, she just stayed inside Chu Wang Fu, and never showed up in front of anybody.
Yet during the same night, Chen Wang had taken away the Yun Qian Meng who was lying inside the prison cell unconscious and brought her inside Chen Wang Fu. If during that time it was already Yun Ruo Xue disguised as Yun Qian Meng, would Chen Wang really not be able to tell the difference?
Yun Ruo Xue was also not that foolish. She would not think that just covering her head was a surefire plan. It might be that she also had no idea what was going on at that time.
Seeing Yun Qian Meng finally ask this question, Chu Fei Yang's lips immediately hooked up a smile, after which he leaned his cheeks closer then in a lowered voice he said, "Just give me a kiss, then I'll answer the riddle!"
Seeing the handsome face suddenly leaning closer and seeing Chu Fei Yang act shamelessly, Yun Qian Meng didn't know whether to laugh or to cry. Thinking that Chu Fei Yang was really extremely shrewd, he would never let himself suffer losses in any situation.
Yun Qian Meng's stubborness came out in this situation. She looked at Chu Fei Yang's smug face and turned her head away. In a gloomy manner she said, "I will think about it myself, I don't believe..."
However before she could finish her words, she suddenly lost her balance then directly fell into Chu Fei Yang's arms. her red lips were immediately sealed by his gentle thin lips, not allowing her to resist, kissing her deeply with an impatient longing. Chu Fei Yang's plump and tender red lips tossed and turned restlessly as if he was tasting some delicious food and delicacies, unwilling to give up unless he took everything all in......
Yun Qian Meng's heart was burning with flame. She wondered why when it came to such kind of matter, Chu Fei Yang was always the dominant one. She tried to open her eyes, not permitting herself to sink into his passion. But the scent of his body made Yun Qian Meng to unconsciously become confused, and her eyes gradually lowered until they were half closed.
During this time, Chu Fei Yang slowly opened his eyes, his smiling eyes filled with pampering. Seeing Yun Qian Meng to gradually turn soft in his arms made his heart fill with an indescribable feeling of happiness.
He was about to release her but her eyes contained a confused expression and also carried a little allure which made his heart stir. Chu Fei Yang lowered down his head again then fiercely kissed her half opened red lips, until Yun Qian Meng's low panting sound could be heard beside his ear then he reluctantly released her.
"You're abominable!" But the moment he released Yun Qian Meng, he saw Yun Qian Meng's both eyes glaring at him, her delicately white face was already blushing.
"Wife, are you blaming your husband for releasing you?" He clearly understood that Yun Qian Meng did not mean it, yet Chu Fei Yang simply misinterpret her intention on purpose, after which he continued what he had left off earlier.
But a delicate hand obstructed Chu Fei Yang's thin lips. Yun Qian Meng regained her composure, then with a simple smile she said "Xiang Ye, you are a highly respected person in front of everybody, why are you being inconsistent? Since I had already satisfied your need, then Xiang Ye, please reveal the answer to the riddle then!"
The kiss had been given, Yun Qian Meng would not dare to lose her chance to ask for the answer to the riddle.
Chu Fei Yang just delicately sniffed the fragrance in her hands, after which he pouted his lips and kissed her delicate palm, then grabbing Yun Qian Meng's hands he slowly spoke, "An army marching forward to a battle doesn't only rely on its brute force and crossing swords out front! Sometimes you have to handle those special enemies with special strategy! I have such a secret group of guards, they can do anything. A simple mission of copying one's manner of speaking and actions is nothing to them."
Hearing Chu Fei Yang's explanation, Yun Qian Meng was astonished. A secret matter like this could only be revealed to somebody he was really intimate with, even Emperor Yu Qian must not know about it. Chu Fei Yang just told her without the slightest hesitation, the sweetness she felt deep within made Yun Qian Meng's heart flutter.
Although Chu Fei Yang just told her the general idea, she already understood the situation in her mind. Ever since during the ancient times, there were many secret troops of army concealed away from public eyes, yet they exhibited great accomplishments.
"Then that means to say, the person which Chen Wang had taken away and brought to Chen Wang Fu was actually someone who had disguised herself as me! The fake me that boarded the marriage sedan was replaced with Yun Ruo Xue. Because Yun Ruo Xue is the niece of Su Yuan, even if she wasn't inside the prison during that time, Su Yuan would not care about it much. Even if during that time the Yun Xiang Fu would be sentenced to death, Su Yuan would be able to find a deathrow prisoner to take the place of Yun Ruo Xue, is it right?" Suddenly understanding everything, she couldn't help admiring how Chu Fei Yang's plan was ever more meticulous than hers. Even though he used her own plan as a basis to make improvements upon, he had made it so perfect.
"But during that time you were a thousand miles away, how did you know about this matter?" Because the matter was so urgent, Yun Qian Meng contacted Xi Lin directly and was unable to write to Chu Fei Yang.
Seeing Yun Qian Meng was asking all the details of the matter, Chu Fei Yang lifted up his hand and pinched the tip of her delicate nose as he smiled and said, "Don't forget Fu Guo Gong Fu was currently treating you like a pearl in their palms. Although Gu Lao Tai Jun wasn't able to obtain some help from the Empress Dowager, yet it was your cousin who had travelled day and night to tell me the details. Fortunately, it was him, if it was the people assigned by Xi Lin, perhaps they were already murdered by Chen Wang on the way."
This time the riddle kept within her heart had finally being solved. Yun Qian Meng felt that Chu Fei Yang was really an unpredictable person who could still be able to control the situation even if he was a thousand mile away. This person was truly a scary opponent.
Chu Fei Yang watched her eyes flicker as they were lowered down, seeming to be immersed in deep thought. The corner of his mouth perked up, following her small movements, he allowed his wife to sink into her contemplation, and he enjoyed watching her calm and wise-looking face.
The horse carriage had arrived at Chu Xiang Fu. Steward Hong was already waiting for them in the gates upon hearing the news, leading all the people of Chu Xiang Fu as they waited for their arrival.
Seeing Chu Fei Yang assisting Yun Qian Meng as they stepped out of the horse carriage, also carefully supporting her down from the horse carriage, all the people were increasingly more respectful towards Yun Qian Meng, as they made their salutations all at the same time saying "Greetings Xiang Ye! Greetings furen!"
And before Chu Fei Yang opened his mouth to speak, his eyes shifted towards Yun Qian Meng as he looked at her wearing a smile with a smile on his face.
Yun Qian Meng's eyes contained power, the corner of her mouth held a faint smiling expression as she spoke naturally and unrestrainedly, "Rise!"
"Thank you, furen!" Hearing Yun Qian Meng's clear voice, all the people immediately responded and stood up in an orderly manner.
Yun Qian Meng had already met Steward Hong before. Steward Hong highly respected this furen, who had cost a lot of efforts for his master before marrying her. Smiling as he went ahead to report, "Xiang Ye, furen, the room had been arranged properly. The congratulatory gifts given by each official residence had been sorted accordingly, the record list of items was already kept inside the warehouse. After a while nucai shall send the list over for furen to take a look."
With regards to Steward Hong's ability to handle things, Yun Qian Meng had already experienced it when he had went with her before to ask for her dowries. As a result she was completely at ease as she smiled and said, "It must have caused you some troubles, Steward Hong."
"It's really nothing, furen!" Housekeeper Hong was a man of few words, unlike Zhao De who only knew flattery, he just made modest remarks towards Yun Qian Meng out of courtesy, then moving his body out of the way, allowed Chu Fei Yang and Yun Qian Meng to pass through.
This was Yun Qian Meng's first time to enter Chu Xiang Fu. Compared to Chu Wang Fu, the Chu Xiang Fu seemed to look more modern, yet it was still with a simple and unadorned style, just a few simple pavilions and kiosks, yet they were meticulously designed with concrete details, making people reflect on them over and over again.
Steward Hong and the others saw Chu Fei Yang personally leading Yun Qian Meng as they took a tour around Xiang Fu. They only left two yatou to wait on them then left.
Seeing Yun Qian Meng completely admire his Chu Xiang Fu, Chu Fei Yang's heart rejoiced, holding her hand he prepared to lead her towards another courtyard, "Come, I'll bring you......"
"Chu Fei Yang, to my surprise, you didn't bring Meng'er back to the wangfu!" But during this time Chu Nan Shan's angry roar echoed from a distance.
Having heard these words, Chu Fei Yang immediately pulled Yun Qian Meng behind his back. And during this moment, Chu Nan Shan showed up in front of them, with his both bright eyes angrily looking at the persons who was hidden away from him by Chu Fei Yang, wishing he could penetrate through Chu Fei Yang's body with his gaze.
"What do you mean by this? After using me, you intended to kick me out?" Dissatisfied, from the bottom of his heart, his eyes and body were all dissatisfied! Chu Nan Shan had finally come across a girl that he liked, yet Chu Fei Yang came out to disrupt things, what kind of grandson was this? He was practically his foe!
"Grandpa, would you like to have great grandchildren? In Chu Wang Fu, when did you abstain yourself from visiting our room? Making no secret of your own presence by intruding inside our room, we felt embarrassed that's why we decide to return to Xiang Fu! After a short period of time, grandpa will be able to have great grandchildren!" Chu Fei Yang replied while facing Chu Wang's aggressive reproach without blushing or his heart racing, his face remained calm without any traces of nervousness.
"I want great grandchildren but...... but......" He had regretted for stating his wish too early, now that Chu Fei Yang had used this reason to block him off, the anger in Chu Wang's eyes immediately turned into grief as he glanced at the person behind Chu Fei Yang, hoping to seek comfort from Yun Qian Meng.
"Meng'er, you are hesitant to make grandpa leave, right!" Instead of using the hard way he resorted to a soft way to attack Chu Fei Yang, since he never disagreed with Yun Qian Meng. Once she agreed, even if Chu Fei Yang was extremely unwilling, he would still be able to move in.
Yun Qian Meng was about to respond but her hand slightly ached, she lowered down her head seeing Chu Fei Yang's hand that was holding hers had slightly exerted more strength, as if he wanted to remind her not to agree easily. Thus she slightly sighed and decided not to meddle, in any case even if she did not agree, Grandpa Chu Wang would still be able to remain here.
"It's been a long time since I last tasted the food prepared by Meng'er!" He continued to complain, with a bit of sobbing tone, Chu Wang's hand was covering his chest, supporting himself onto a pillar inside the corridor, he slowly sat down on a stool in the lobby, his face was desolate, as if being abandoned.
"Staying inside the Wang Fu all alone was truly pitiful, the food was tasteless for me! What a pity your grandma had passed away too early leaving behind an old man like me, being ignored all over the place, being forbidden to go around, trying to ask for food." The opposite side still remained unconcerned, Chu Nan Shan continued, squeezing tears out from his eyes, lifting up his head and leaning on a cylindrical pillar, his eyes full of hidden bitterness, his expression looked miserable.
Yun Qian Meng sighed heavily.
With grandpa behaving like this, if she still refused to respond, perhaps people would feel that his granddaughter-in-law was a cold and ruthless person.
After all, for the sake of avoiding Chen Wang, grandpa had indeed wasted so much effort for them, at least she must show some consideration.
The delicate face emerged behind Chu Fei Yang's back without him noticing. Yun Qian Meng's eyes were smiling as she winked at Chu Wang who was still talking to himself.
Receiving the signal, Chu Nan Shan regained his spirit, the sad expression on his face was immediately replaced by a happy face, after which, Yun Qian Meng's beautiful voice echoed in his ears, "Then Meng'er shall cook up some dinner tonight if you don't mind, grandpa."
Having heard what was said, the expression of happiness showed up on Chu Nan Shan's face, with this he also secretly provoked Chu Fei Yang as he hooked up the corner of his mouth, beaming with smile on his face.
After speaking, Yun Qian Meng immediately felt a pair of extremely cold eyes glaring at her. Lifting her eyes she saw Chu Fei Yang was actually lowering down his head staring at her as if blaming her for acting in her own initiative.
Yun Qian Meng tried to gain his favor back by approaching him and smiled and used her lips to silently say to him that it was just a dinner and she did not agree to his grandpa's other requests.
Reading Yun Qian Meng's lips, Chu Fei Yang's face gradually turned better. He allowed the servant girls to support Yun Qian Meng back to the room to have some rest, then he himself turned around without looking at Chu Wang then proceeded towards the room.
Seeing this, Chu Wang immediately got up and followed behind him, yet he saw the accounts book in Chu Fei Yang's hand, and he spoke to him in a lowered voice, "Tomorrow morning, how do you plan to take care of Su Yuan?"
Having heard these words, Chu Fei Yang laid down the accounts book in his hand, the corner of his lips turned up intp a cold smile and with a cold gaze he answered in a rhetorical question, "Do I need to even set my hands on this man?"
