Chu Kong seemed like he wanted to crush me to death.
“I told you to obediently reincarnate as a male. If you didn’t struggle, we wouldn’t be in this mess!”
“I told you to reincarnate as a woman. Why didn’t you reincarnate as a woman, ah?!”
I refuted him and continued: “If you didn’t want to take advantage of me, would we be in this state?!”
“Funny, who was the one who came up with this bad idea? You want to put all the shit (blame) on xiaoye’s head?”
“Who cares about putting shit on your head! Don’t waste the fertilizer!”
Chu Kong said furiously: “You, a woman, can you talk more vulgar than this?”
I was also furious: “If you’re like Lu Hai Kong, would I be able to talk so vulgar? You still have the nerve to criticize me like you are talking really nicely!”
“A, you dare to compare with me? If you’re obediently like silly Xiang, would I be able to get angry at you?”
After those words left his mouth, I couldn’t say anything against it. Chu Kong also went silent. The room was silent for a long time. Chu Kong gritted his teeth, hmpfed coldly and sat down on my bed. I was going to ignore him, but seeing a beauty sitting with open legs beside me was a weird and funny sight. When I looked down and saw my flat and broad chest, I let out a deep sigh. I sighed, Chu Kong also sighed. After letting out another sigh, I said: “But no matter how we’ve reincarnated, we should’ve been reborn as a baby. This mess…….Also not giving me the slightest bit of time to adapt, what the hell is this?!”
Chu Kong turned. We looked at each other for a while. Almost at the same time, we let out a low curse: “Damn that Heavenly emperor Lee!”
I scratched my head irritably.
“What do we do now? One is a general, the other is a princess. They’re married and living in the same house. How can we draw a line like this and never contact each other, ah?”
After Chu Kong heard that, his expression slowly turned angry. His raised his one brow and said: “That’s right.”
He pondered while touching his chin: “Twenty years……”
I frowned: “Yes ah, we need to live our ass for at least twenty years. After the reincarnation, I nearly died, how will I survive, ah?!”
Chu Kong thought for a while, suddenly looked up at me and said: “Xiao Xiang Zi, let’s make a deal.”
After I heard him say that, I subconsciously frowned. Every time we make a deal, the results are never what we expected. Messy accidents always happen. I asked: “What do you want to do?”
“Let’s work together for a while.”
He looked really arrogant.
“Now we don’t know the situation around us yet. We can make other plans after we get to the bottom of this. “
Although he’s saying that, his expression looked like he was doing me a favor. I restrained my dissatisfaction and asked: “How do we work together?”
“Really stupid,”Chu Kong said dissatisfied and glanced at me.
“We need to live for twenty years in the human realm. If we want to keep our lives there’re two things that we shouldn’t touch. One is the jianghu1, second is the temple. Needless to say about the jianghu. Bandits all over the place and spilling too much blood. All day long they kill without reason. It’s unsafe. As for the temple, I’m alright, but you……”
He smiled. It’s obvious to ridicule me.
“I’m afraid you won’t be able to survive for two months.”
I clenched my fist.
“Playing politics is really tiring. Besides, it’s the royal politics. Xiaoye doesn’t want to let that muddy water dirty myself. So after we get to the bottom of this situation, let’s go away. Deep in the forest is a safe place. I don’t believe that heaven can get us killed with a knife there.”
I nodded and said: “Stupid, if you want to know this situation, then just get someone and ask.”
He smiled coldly: “Do you know what our identities are?! If we want to continue living, we can’t let someone figure us out. If we get accused of being demons and dragged out to be burned, then even if you cry it’ll be too late.”
I yelled: “Come in!”
Immediately my loyal servant pushed the door open. He alertly glanced at Chu Kong. He knelt on the ground.
I nodded and said in a strict way: “You, tell her who I am!”
The servant said seriously: “I answer the general. General is one of those personally appointed by the previous emperor to protect the country. Now you’re the great general. At fifteen years you battled with the enemies. At eighteen you raided the camps with your troops. Among the people, you took the head of the Xiongnu prince! At twenty-three you defeated the Xiongnu tribe. This is something that couldn’t be done in the last fifty years!”
I nodded: “Great, now you tell her what her identity is.”
He glanced at Chu Kong and looked down: “The emperor’s sister.”
I raised an eyebrow. This is a perfect marriage match. The man is brave, the woman is beautiful. A fate gifted by the heavens. How did they become an estranged couple……I suddenly remembered the day I and Chu Kong fought at Yue Lao temple. That time ended a lot of fates……
On my back there was some cold sweat. I coughed twice and asked: “You say, do I treat the princess good or bad?”
My loyal servant glanced at me strangely, but seeing my serious look he replied: “General treats the princess……courteous.”
Well, it seems like this general doesn’t treat the princess really well.
“How does the princess treat me?”
The servant was loss for words. It was silent for a moment when suddenly a girl rushed in. I remembered that it was the girl who kept asking Chu Kong if he was well on the day he vomited blood.
The girl knelt on the ground and kowtowed three times on the floor. Then she raised her tearful face and cried: “This slave is audacious. This slave knows her place and knows that this slave doesn’t have the right to say this. But today general is asking such questions, making the princess lose face! The princess always treats general with sincerity. The heaven can be the witness! How can general completely not know how the princess treats general?! Normally, the princess won’t let the servants say it, but today, if this slave continue to keep silent then the princess will be wronged for her whole life!”
My ears are waiting for her next sentence. Chu Kong is also looking at her quietly. The girl saw that no one was stopping her; she was surprised for a moment. Then she said: “The stumble of Xinyun lady is not caused by the princess. Her miscarriage also wasn’t caused by the princess! Her self-directed play was to swindle general. None of this is the princess’ fault, why does general want to punish the princess?! General only knows that that Xinyun lady has general’s child. But does general knows that the princess is also expecting general’s child?!”
A bolt hit me and Chu Kong. I felt that the world is really blank. I turned around and looked at Chu Kong. His eyes were widened. There was an extremely rare expression of being surprised on his face. He stared at the girl kneeling on the ground: “You…… you……”
The girl kept crying: “Princess! Do not continue to keep the general in the dark! This slave knows your heart is in pain, but why don’t you say it to the general?! Why do you carry the burden alone? This is actually……Even if princess is not thinking about yourself, you need to think about your unborn child. What wrong did he do?! And now we don’t even know if the poison has harmed the fetus. Princess really shouldn’t make it difficult for yourself!”
Chu Kong face turned paler. The two words “unborn child” and “fetus” poked on our nerves. My eyes rolled and fall onto Chu Kong’s belly……There is “my”child? In Chu Kong’s belly? I felt that this lifetime is ridiculously absurd.
Chu Kong was pale and his eyes looked disorganized. He rubbed his forehead. It seemed like he was forcing himself to calm down.
“This isn’t right. Something must’ve gone wrong.”
He stood up. While he kept repeating those words, he walked to the door. The girl kneeling on the ground was about to stand up and follow him, when he yelled: “Stop! Kneel! You’re not allowed to move!”
His mind must be extremely confused right now.
“I’ll have to calm down……need to calm down.”
Actually, getting to know this, my shock isn’t less than that of Chu Kong’s. But it happened on Chu Kong’s body. While thinking about that, that sad reminder turned into delight (she’s happy that it didn’t happen on her body).
I asked the girl kneeling on the ground: “How long has she been pregnant?”
“About three months…..”
“Nonsense,”my loyal servant yelled. “Three months ago the general didn’t come back much to the mansion! How can Qingling princess get pregnant?”
“This slave swears that every word this slave has spoken is the truth,”the girl immediately retorted. “Three months ago, there was one time when the general was drunk. He slept in the princess’ room……After knowing that she was pregnant, the princess wanted to immediately tell the general, but the general was with Xinyun lady everyday……The princess is a proud and arrogant person……”
I nodded and sighed in my heart. Perhaps the real princess would never tell the general. The real general also would never know that he has a child, letting Chu Kong get such a big advantage……
Suddenly, I want to see what kind of expression Chu Kong will have while he’s in labor (evil her).
