Mo Flower: Chapter 2b

.

Chapter 2b

.

.

Li Qing has sleeps soundly and unaware that he about head on a long journey; finally when he has enough rests, he woken up and the sun at this time located in the west apparently nearing dusk. He stretched and sat up; the royal robe that covered the body had slide down to his waist.

.

.

“Wake up.” Song Yu said.

.

.

“Ah.”

.

.

Song Yu continues to work on political agenda document (correspondence), Li Qing worn his shoes and sat quietly. A royal servant took a small table and put on the couch, another servant brought a bowl of pea’s porridge on a tray and placed it there, the emperor has specially ordered the royal cookers in made them.

.

.

Song Yu was well aware of Li Qing food preferences; he did not like exotic food but preferred green vegetables. Even though it is a commoner dish, the royal cooker was still able to present it with great delicacies, the pea’s porridge look like a beautiful jade paved bowl which gives the diner a greater sense of satisfaction in eating them.

.

.

“Eat before it’s getting cold, a little nibble for the stomach and then later we’ll have supper together.” Song Yu said.

.

.

“Alright.” Li Qing was carelessly stirring the warm porridge, although he’d slept and did not eat anything all day but did not feel particularly hungry and so after two spoons he places it down.

.

.

“Why not eat a bit more?” the Emperor’s head did not look up and his eyes was obviously stared at the document.

.

.

‘It was very amazing the man knew my every move.’

.

.

“I’ve no appetite.”

.

.

“Are you being unwell?”

.

.

“No.”

.

.

“Unhappy?”

.

.

“……You could have let me sleep at Ting Xia Lou (Summer House).”

.

.

‘Let me sleeping here and also used the royal robe to cover like a quilt, could be no longer portraying as the Emperor who “loving the people as his children”.’

.

.

“You were in a deep sleep so I did not want to wake you.”

.

.

“Who has came here?”

.

.

“Xu Minister, Huang Minister, Left Wing Prime Minister, Generalissimo, Shen General, and your brother-in-law.”

.

.

Li Qing frown deepen, “Are you deliberately let them see me?”

.

.
“You’re too suspicious.” Song Yu puts down the document and sat down beside him, took the bowl and starting to feed him with a spoonful of porridge, said: “Three days later, you’ll patrol Chu Nan on my behalf.”

.

.

“Alone?” Li Qing obediently ate the pea’s porridge from the emperor hand.

.

.

“I’ll have Little Miao to travel with you.”

.

.

“I’ve not been that far out of the capital.”

.

.

“You can take the opportunity to visit your third brother.”

.

.

“When am I to return to the capital?”

.

.

“When Mo flowers blossom, you can slowly come back.”

.

.

Li Qing’s eyes slightly narrowed and then a ripple of smile appears in his eyes, the taste of salty porridge seems to be sweeter. “Your Majesty, let your subordinate to remind sire; that I am your Rites Assistant Minister and is not yours Wu Yue Lady.”

.

.

Song Yu puts down the bowl and dragged him over to sit on his lap, and then licks his lips where the residue porridge was lingered. He latched onto the moist sweet glossy lips, passionate kisses them and said: “I sometimes want our relationship out in an open, I am an Emperor but have to sneaking around to see my lover, is utterly insulting.”

.

.

He always felt that Li Qing’s lips is delicious sweet and sweeter as days going by, and that is why he always wanted to kiss him and then gobbled him up. Li Qing took the initiative to open his mouth and so Song Yu’s tongue entered, continues of their lingering kisses, while Li Qing inarticulate said: “A wife is not a concubine; a concubine is not the same as an external affair.”

.

.

“You, ah!” Song Yu was angry and bitten his lips and when they were ending the kiss, he was still slightly annoying but firmly hold Li Qing in the arms. “To be together is that really hard?”

.

.

Unwilling? Li Qing’s heart admitted from the beginning he was indeed not without reluctance to enter this relationship, he always play it safe and greedily lazy about anything, he does not look for trouble so trouble is not looking for him.

.

.

‘Is it not by having a relationship with the Emperor is the most troublesome thing?’

.

.

At first he could not help but dazed and confused, not sure why the Emperor has fancy him? Of course he was unwilling to be under a man body but cannot be bothered to fight back. Who is the Emperor? He is the most powerful man in the kingdom, only in vain to struggle against such a force, he is not like those who would rather die to protect their virginity, he is Li Qing who want to be like a small sloth, just laying lazy for all day was enough.

.

.

He thought the Emperor was momentary newly indulgent with him and will not last, all he needs was to have a little patience and everything will be over. However, the situation was beyond his expectation, their feelings have increased over time, involuntarily they have cares for each other a bit more every day, ultimately, currently they could not be without the other.

.

.

He’s almost certain that the Emperor does love him, and he too is in love with the Emperor. This concealment gradually becomes a hard thing to do, but if he did not hide then it would have been a hundred times harder.

.

.

There was times when he want their feelings to be open, but the other man is the Emperor, to be made public would presumably cause greater deal of trouble and will be exhausted him. If their secret love affair became public, he thought, ‘I would probably be the first one to run away, where nobody able to find me and to hide there forever, and pretending nothing had happened.’

.

.

‘Called me a cowardly is alright, laughed at my unworthiness is still good; a typical life and just easygoing unfettered path – well, I would volunteer to bury the head in the sand like an ostrich, just ah…’

.

.

“Why are we still together then?” Li Qing muffled whisper, asking Song Yu but as if he was asking himself.

.

.

Occasionally he thought, ‘if I had not taken a nap six years ago, not haplessly stabbed by assassins sword hence the Emperor noticed of my existence, then today they would had not be involved with each other? Should I be gratitude or resent of that dim assassin ah? The man had taken a powerless and unimportant official as a hostage.’

.

.

The Emperor never sighed before, sigh. “It is fate.”

.

.

“ A misfortune one.”

.

.

“Even if is a misfortune fate, I’ll make this misfortune to tied you and me forever.”

.

.

“A lifetime…lifetime….. Really a life together……” Li Qing tones was sound confused, his eyes were vague dreamily.

.

.

“Of course I can!” Song Yu lifted his face and firmly stared, said: “Li Qing, Li Qing, this life you are destined belong to me.”

.

.

Li Qing silently looking back Song Yu for a while, thoughtfully then faintly cried, “Ah!” noncommittal and yawned.

.

.

“You’re still busy, I would rest for a while; called me when we’ve dinner.” Then he kissed his lover the Emperor, and once again doing his favourite thing, sleeps.

.

.

Song Yu chuckled loudly; a bit exasperated, he flicks the man nose then unconsciously caressing his face. ‘I love this man leisurely composure, and his love for serenity, but this attitude and casualness temperament sometimes really annoyed, not sure how much of myself is possessing of his mind and how important am I weight to him.’

.

.

“Qing, pay more attention to me, okay?” The young Emperor lightly whispered to the man who has fallen asleep, ‘do not know whether these sentiments of love word will be infiltrated into his dream.’

  3. please can you tell me where I can find the raws of this novel. I would like to read it, the story ha a good feeling in it.

    • Hi Viviane, Can you read Chinese? silly to ask when you’ve requested for raw. I’m afraid the site where I get it is written in Vietnamese and you need to become a member to download (as well a few rules), so it would be difficult anyway. If you still interest, I could upload on mediafire. the Mo Flower is actually one of greatly beloved story…though I’m not sure if the subtle humor and sweetness of it did get through my translation.
