Ghostly Masked Prince Xiao: Pampering and Spoiling the Little Adorable Consort Chapter 314
“Brother Xu, it’s because you’ve been studying so hard these days that you haven’t heard anything about it!” The man in green suit smiled, then whispered, “We are now using power to sit on this position. After the late emperor died, the princes began to move.”
“What are you talking about?” The man in blue suit was a little surprised.
The man in green suit said mysteriously, “I heard these words. Didn’t I go to Qing city a few days ago? I just met two drinking officials and heard this from them.”
“It’s terrible, what should we do? If there is a war, the common people will be hurt the most!” The man in the blue suit was panicked and looked like a storm was coming soon.
The man in green suit patted him on the shoulder, “Nothing need to worry about. As long as one remains a monk, one rings the bell. At the worst, we can escape to a safe place, and come back after the war ends, anyway. Who is the emperor has nothing to do with us. As long as the world is peaceful.”
After hearing this, Chu Qingyan felt very emotional. In the minds of ordinary people, the most important thing was to eat enough food, whoever in power could ensure that they weren’t worried about food and clothing, they would support them. This was the sadness under power politics.
“Big Ice Cube, it sounds like Junlan State isn’t a peaceful place.” Chu Qingyan turned to Xiao Xu.
“Well, the emperor of Junlan State has five or six brothers, he used extraordinary means to ascend to the throne. Therefore, his brothers weren’t convinced on the surface. Because he didn’t use the right way to get the throne, so it was difficult to convince the public. So, the late emperor had to put these brothers on the land to appease all the government officials first. When all these were done, the power of the princes had grown stronger. When the emperor died, these princes were restrained by each other, and after the new emperor ascended the throne, these people began to feel restless. That’s normal because that’s politics.”
Xiao Xu didn’t want to explain so much, although the Parenting Scriptures said that girl only needs to know how to play qin, calligraphy and painting, but he still felt that his girl should develop in an all-round way and shouldn’t be restricted to the skills of female boudoirs, so he would explained the situation about Junlan State to her.
After listening to the words of Xiao Xu and guests around them words, Chu Qingyan probably knew what situation Junlan State was in.
Extraordinary means? That is to say, the throne originally didn’t belong to him, but was taken down by him. It was self-evident that any conspiracy had been involved in it, and it was sure to cause anger. In addition, the emperor of Junlan State was disrespectful, and his concubines in the harem were countless, but he extended his hands to the wife and daughter of his ministers. What a beast!
And this new emperor must not only deal with the mess left by his father, but also face the desperate uncles, because the princes who have cultivated for so long will surely act on the right time.
Although feeling a little sympathy for this emperor, Chu Qingyan was more worried about whether they would just run into civil unrest along the way so that their journey would be delayed again.
“Fire Spirit, notify others that we leave immediately after the meal and try to get to the next town early tomorrow morning.” Xiao Xu laid down his chopsticks and ordered solemnly.
Chu Qingyan nodded slightly, the order of Big Ice Cube was right, they had better leave this country as soon as possible, and now she couldn’t wait to put her wings on and fly away from this country. However, she researched the map that if they want to reach Jiang State as soon as possible, the only way is to go straight to cross the entire Junlan State, they would inevitably enter the most prosperous capital of the Junlan State. She can only wish the civil strife has not yet begun.
People began to eat in a hurry, because they were trying to keep going on time.
At this time, people at another table began to discuss.
“You know, our new emperor’s sister, Princess Zimei, is now sixteen-year-old, and it looks like it’s time for her to get married.” An old man touched his beard and said without delay.
“I heard that Princess Zimei, the most gorgeous girl in Junlan State is as beautiful as a flower. I don’t know which good boy is lucky to have her?” a strong man laughed.
Another young man said with a smile, “It must be the nobles from a famous family who have this opportunity. How can we, the ordinary people, have this blessing?”
“Is it good to be the husband of the princess? Do you remember that the emperor’s younger sister, Princess Fuchang, besides her own husband, how many men she had in her backyard? I heard that you can’t count with both hands!” a person said.
“You can’t say the grape are sour because you can’t eat it. I heard that our princess Zimei has a favorite man in her heart, who seems to be the general of a country. It’s the thing in two years ago, I can’t remember.” another person said.
“Hey, how much does this matter have anything to do with us ordinary people!” another talked.
So, the topic went off like this.
Chu Qingyan was curious about the princess Zimei. After all, women are eager to gossip about these sex scandal news. Unfortunately, these people changed a new topic.
“Princess Zimei? Master, she…” Fire Spirit frowned and couldn’t help saying. But he was stopped by his master.
“Don’t talk about these things.” Xiao Xu glanced at him lightly, and Fire Spirit snorted immediately.
Chu Qingyan looked around them suspiciously, and she was about to ask what happened to Princess Zimei, but everyone was ready to go, so she shut up.
In the following days, they traveled day and night regardless of in rainy or shiny days, and the ten-day journey was compressed into six, then they reached the capital of Junlan State.
Although there were no setbacks in the road, and the civil strife in the monarchy hadn’t start, the closer to the capital, the more nervous they felt, but people didn’t pay attention, as long as they passed through the capital, they could say that they were far from the center of this vortex.
The capital was more guarded than other towns.
Even the soldiers who passed by at the gate of the city were more than those in other cities and towns. They looked serious and powerful, and the inspection procedures were more complicated.
The group was questioned for a long time and finally released.
Chu Qingyan was relieved and was about to turn back to call her father to follow up. Suddenly a group of soldiers who didn’t know where they came from took a spear and surrounded them as a group. The crowd quickly moved closer. Chu Qingyan immediately raised her heart into her throat.
The general in charge of inspecting the people looked at the situation and immediately ran over, “What is this? I have already checked these people and there are no problems.”
“Master Li, please look at this token first.” a soldier showed the token in his hand.
The general saw it at a glance, “It turns out to be the order given by that person, so don’t be delayed, please continue.”
