Mo Flower: Chapter 2a

Chapter 2a

Song Hyun stepped inside the Royal Office and saw Li Qing sleeping, his head is on the pillow close to the north window and his body was covered by the Emperor’s royal robe, he cannot help but surprised for a moment, carefully asked: “Third Brother, is this not prohibited?”

.

“It is nothing.” the Emperor nonchalantly replied.

.

.

“Why not entitle him Shang Jun, have this out in the open?”

.

.

“You should know his temper.”

.

.
“Ah Yes, Li’s Family always have been arrogant, stubborn, and obstinacy types.” Song Hyun smiled, shows that he is clearly understood.

.

.

“Little Sixth, why are you especially here to see me?” Emperor asked

.

.

“Do you about Little Seventh is in Chu Nan?”

.

.

“He’s training an army there.”

.

.

“Uh, you already know?”

.

.

“This country is mine.”

.

.

“Third Brother, I’m admiring you very much, no wonder the commoners called you a Clairvoyant Emperor, and nothing can be concealed from Your Majesty.”

.

.

“Little Seventh committed no treason.”

.

.

“Why has he take such action, it could lead to misunderstanding?”

.

.

“He hopes I’ll give him someone.”

.

.

“Who is it?”

.

.
“Little Miao!”

.

.

Suddenly sound of “bang clatter!” was heard, when he turned and saw Wei Xiao Miao stood at the door, a freshly brew pot of tea had dropped at the other man feet, a delicate pale face with a hint of apprehension.

.

.
“Pardon for Your servant clumsiness, I’m deserved to die.” Wei Xiao Miao hurried to squat down and pick up the broken pieces.

.

.

“You came here.” Song Hyun walked over, dragged him up and pulled into the Royal Office, aggressively questioned: “Little Miao, what the hell are Song Wei and you being up to?”

.

.

“Ah…… so noisy……” Li Qing’s delirious spoken from his sleep as he was being disturbed and rolled the body over.

.

.

“Little Sixth, hush.” The Emperor walked to Li Qing, he tucked back the robe, pulled the dishevelled hair back behind the ear, leaned over and whispered: “It’s OK, you can go back to sleep.”

.

.

Song Hyun rolled his eyes several times at the scene, ‘I did not expect the Emperor loving Li Qing to this point.’ Sung Hyun was unable to comprehend, how his tall and handsome brother, an Emperor who talented both in civil and military affairs to fancy someone as mediocrity like Li Qing. Although, this man is his second brother-in-law, but truthfully also the most untalented of the family member. Each of Li’s Family is very good looking in different way, only Li Qing was like an ugly duckling in a group of swan.

.

.

Song Hyun married to Li Qing’s youngest sister, Li Cong Tong about four years ago; his wife the Duchess, so Li Qing and the Emperors are related to each other through marriage.

.

.
Anyway back to present, Wei Xiao Miao was dragged inside, his face did not concealed of fear and confusion.

.

.

“Little Miao, what is between Little Seventh and you? Why have I never heard of your involvement, you’re better honest?” Song Hyun lowered his tone.

.

.
“Your Grace, I don’t know.” Wei Xiao Miao quickly restored his calm, respectful temperament.

.

.

“Do not be afraid, since we grew up together, the Emperor and I will not hassles you.”

.

.

“Little Sixth, you’re embarrassed him, do not concern with Little Seventh’s issue.” The Emperor turned to order. “Little Miao, you can go.”

.

.

“Yes, your servant will be retired.” Wei Xiao Miao withdraws.

.

.

“Third Brother, you’re seriously assured about Little Seventh?”

.

.

“You should not waste time to worry about Little Seventh, better concentrate on my sister-in-law; I heard that she is pregnant with your second child. I presume that is what you’re here for today.”

.

.

“I’m now suspected you’re not only a clairvoyant, but also could read minds.” Song Hyun although in awe of his older brother he was still taunted him, laughed “Please advised when the Rites Assistant Minister, my second-in-law will become my sister-in-law, Sire?”

.

.
“He is a man.”

.

.

“Of course I know that he is a man, Da Shao does have several Shang Jun in the past, the Emperor publicly lover and the status is the same as Lady (rank below the Queen), is it not by doing so means that you’re recognise him as your lover?”

.

.

“Have you ever want to force Li Cong Tong to be a concubine?”

.

.
“Of course, not.” Song Hyun categorically replied like a fastened nail, continued: “Nevertheless, it is better than without legitimacy, not being able to see each other publicly. Third Brother, do you know what people called this relationship?”

.

.

“Lover?”

.

.

“Oh! I did not say anything.”

.

.
The Emperor smiled lightly and scolded “No one dares to give me lip service like you.”

.

.

Song Hyun exaggerates responded. “Thanks to His Majesty who tolerate and love your brother.”

.

.

The brothers had their little chatted about family matters but before leaving Song Hyun he could not help advised “Third Brother, I do not know how long you and my second brother-in-law relationship will be hidden but if it was not means to be public knowledge then better not do it, of course, if it is Sire intention, that will be another matter.”

.

.
The Emperor smiled but did not reply.

.

.

Song Hyun had gone when Wei Xiao Miao brought another brew tea inside.

.

.

“Little Miao, if I ordered you to go to Little Seventh, are you willing?” The Emperor asked.

.

.

Wei Xiao Miao knelt down. “Whatever Your Majesty command, it will be done.”

.

.

“ I do not want to give you to Little Seventh, but to observed him. I will be issued an edict tomorrow, three days later you’ll accompany Li Qing patrolling Chu Nan.”

.

.

“Your Majesty, there is a bit of distance between the capital and Chu Nan, since this is work, the patrolling will takes Li Excellency away at least for several months.” Wei Xiao Miao reminded him.

.

.

“It would be best if occasionally he’s away. I temporarily handed him over to you to take care.”

.

.

“Yes, your servant will surely devote to serve Li Excellency.”

.

.
The Emperor smiled faintly said “You’re to take care of him, not serve; he would not like you to be a meticulous nanny. Regard to the Seventh Duke, it is up to your capacity dealing with him.”

.

.
Wei Xiao Miao pursed his lips and justified: “Your Majesty, your servant has been with sire since early age, I’ve little friendship with the Seventh Duke, and there is no hidden motive.”

.

.

“I know, when the time comes, whether you choose to go or stay, you’ve to make the choice, and I will not interfere with your decision.” The Emperor said. “You can go and get ready.”

.

.

“Yes, your servant will be retired.”
