Chapter 71: A Voyeur

 

At the moment, Yang Shi Han is only wearng her inner garments. Although the important parts are all concealed, men aren’t supposed to even look at women’s feet, let alone anywhere else.

Yang Shi Han hastily covers her own chest.

Mo Cheng Xuan immediately turns around, “Please forgive me, Your Ladyship. This general didn’t do it on purpose!”

“You are too much, Mo Cheng Xuan. Not only were you disrespectful towards bengong, you actually dared to enter bengong’s private chamber! You must be tired on living!”

Her servants who hear her scream rush in, “What happened, Your Ladyship?”

By now, Yang Shi Han has already properly put on her dress. She glances at her servants icily, “Are you people blind? Didn’t you see that General Mo has rushed into bengong’s private chamber?”

Yang Shi Han’s personal maid, Qing Er unhappily says, “You are too preposterous, General Mo. No men can simply enter Her Ladyship’s chamber!”

Mo Cheng Xuan tries to explain himself: “Yang Guifei, this general heard you calling for help and thought someone had attacked you. This general did not do this intentionally.”

Yang Shi Han walks in front of him and stares at him before saying, “Let bengong ask you something, General Mo. Do you find bengong beautiful?” She is wearing a pale lavender dress at the moment, layered with thin gauze. She looks particularly beautiful and refined. Her long hair are flying gracefully at the moment due to the wind from the window. She is wearing some pearl ornaments in the shape of flowers on her head, making her look as though she is glowing. Her skin is fair and smooth. She looks like a celestial being from the heaven. Her fingers are slender and her skin is creamy and her smile is charming, inciting emotions that one cannot comprehend. She looks at him almost haughtily, waiting for his reply.

He looks back at her while calmly saying, “Beautiful.”

Yang Shi Han smiles arrogantly, “Since you think bengong is beautiful, you must have harboured some ill-intention towards bengong. That was why you trespassed into bengong’s chamber.”

Mo Cheng Xuan continues explaining himself, “You’ve misunderstood, Your Ladyship. This general has said it just now, this general heard you screaming for help, that was why this general rushed in.”

“Hmph, stop lying. Bengong’s Gui Ning Palace has always been tightly-guarded, never mind an assassin, even a fly cannot fly in! Bengong was only screaming because there was a cockroach.” Yang Shi Han looks at him with her chin tipped high.

Hearing her words, Mo Cheng Xuan realizes that he was the one who had been impulsive, “It was this general who lost conduct, please forgive me! This general is willing to be punished. I will wait outside while you sort your appearance out, Your Ladyship.”

Yang Shi Han smiles proudly as she looks at Mo Cheng Xuan who is walking out: How can there be someone so righteous in this world? Idiot.

After a moment, she walks out and sits on her designated seat. She looks at Mo Cheng Xuan and imposingly asks him, “Mo Cheng Xuan, you wronged bengong again. A mistake on top of a mistake. How do you think bengong should punish you?”

Mo Qi Qi very quickly finds out about Yang Shi Han taking her brother away.

She comforts her worried mother, “Please wait for us here, Mother. We will return soon.”

She rushes to Gui Ning Palace and hears that question just in time. She cuts them off, “Who do you think you are to punish bengong’s brother?”

Seeing Mo Qi Qi who is walking in, Yang Shi Han smiles arrogantly, “The empress sure came fast. Since you are here, please mediate over this matter for chenqie. General Mo not only spilled the soup that chenqie prepared for His Majesty, he also rushed into chenqie’s chamber while chenqie was changing! What kind of punishment do you think he should get, Your Ladyship?”

“Hmph, that is only from your side! How can bengong believe anything if it comes from only one side of the story!” Mo Qi Qi glares at Yang Shi Han.

Yang Shi Han smiles, “Alright, you can ask General Mo himself if chenqie was lying.”

Mo Qi Qi turns to Mo Cheng Xuan, “Ge, was Yang Guifei telling the truth?”

Mo Cheng Xuan nods, “Yang Guifei was telling the truth.”

Mo Qi Qi suddenly has the desire to knock him in the head. Must this brother be so honest? When faced with the sly Yang Shi Han, even the truth might not be the truth. She is here to save him, but now that he said that, how is she going to do just that?

Yang Shi Han raises her brow haughtily at Mo Qi Qi, “You heard it yourself, Your Ladyship. Chenqie was not framing him.”

“I don’t believe you. My brother is not that kind of person,” Mo Qi Qi retorts back. Although she has only meet Mo Cheng Xuan for a couple of times, she can tell that he is a very upright person. He is a rule-abider and is also very collected. There must be something wrong in this.

“Your brother admitted it himself, are you still trying to make excuses for him?” Yang Shi Han mockingly laughs.

Mo Qi Qi looks at Yang Shi Han in disdain, “Bengong wants to know something. If you were on your way to send soup to His Majesty, what were you doing in front of Feng Yang Palace? It was not in the way. Did you purposely went to Feng Yang Palace with ill-intention?”

“Please be mindful of your words, Your Ladyship. The palace is so big, it is up to chenqie to take whichever route chenqie wanted! There is no rule against that,” Yang Shi Han arrogantly retorts back.

Mo Qi Qi nods, “There is indeed no rule against that. You can pass by bengong’s palace, but why did you stop when you saw bengong’s brother? How did he end up spilling soup on you?”

Chenqie was just kind-heartedly offering him the soup. It is okay if he wants to reject it, but he actually spilled it on chenqie! He was too disrespectful!”

Mo Qi Qi looks like she has finally caught onto something, “Oh, so it is like that? Hm. Let bengong tell you something, Yang Guifei. Bengong’s brother is not the only one who does not dare to drink your soup, even bengong does not have the guts to! That was meant for His Majesty, if he drinks it, people will say that he was preposterous and took the emperor’s things. That is a very big crime! Rather than bearing that crime, it is better if he simply spills it on you! At least he will only be called ‘disrespectful’!”

“You—“ Yang Shi Han angrily says.

Mo Cheng Xuan suddenly speaks up, “This general did not spill it on accident. It simply spilled when this general was rejecting it.”

Mo Qi Qi shrugs, “Did you hear that, Yang Meimei? My brother did not do it on purpose!”

Yang Shi Han rebuts them, “Does saying he didn’t do it on purpose automatically means that he really didn’t do it on purpose? He is your brother, you will naturally believe him. Bengong does not! Even if bengong can let that go, he actually sneaked into bengong’s chamber afterwards to peek at bengong while bengong was changing! Bengong is the emperor’s most loved woman! If the emperor knows, he might even kill him!”

Mo Cheng Xuan earnestly says, “This is really this general’s fault. This general will seek punishment in front of the emperor, now.” He turns around to walk out.

Before Mo Qi Qi even gets to stop him, Yang Shi Han shrieks at him angrily, “You stop right there! Do not bring this in front of His Majesty!”

Mo Cheng Xuan looks at her in confusion, “Why not? This general saw you while you were changing clothes, it is only right for this general to seek punishment in front of the emperor.”

Mo Qi Qi tugs at his sleeves and whispers to him, “Have you gone mad, Ge? You may really lose your life. He will lose so much face if this matter spreads.”

“Since I committed a blunder, it is only natural for me to bear the punishment,” Mo Cheng Xuan says with a righteous air.

Mo Qi Qi wants to vomit blood. Can this brother not be so gentlemanly? Why couldn’t he be as temperamental as their father? If he is like their father, Yang Shi Han would be done long ago.

“What punishment? Yang Shi Han clearly framed you! She has always been wary of my position. Since she cannot do anything to me, she decided to target my family members! She is too despicable, just wait and see how I handle her,” Mo Qi Qi whispers back.

“Yang Shi Han, my brother will not be interested in watching you change. You must have done something that made him rushed over,” Mo Qi Qi glares at him.

Yang Shi Han laughs mockingly, “Then go on and ask him whether or not he saw me undressing.”

“I———–“ Mo Cheng Xuan does not know what to say to that. He had indeed seen her without her dress.

Mo Qi Qi speaks up, “There is something wrong here. If my brother had really purposely peeked at you, why wouldn’t you let him meet the emperor?”

Yang Shi Han momentarily freezes before saying, “Do you think everyone is like you; shameless? If this matter spread, where will bengong put my face? Bengong wouldn’t let him meet the emperor because bengong didn’t want the matter to turn big!”

When Mo Cheng Xuan hears that, he nods in agreement, “You were right, Your Ladyship. This general lacked tact.”

Ge, why are you speaking up for her? She wants to punish you!” Mo Qi Qi tugs at her brother’s arm.

Mo Cheng Xuan turns to her with an earnest face, “It is true, a woman’s reputation is really important.”

Mo Qi Qi slaps her own forehead, “You are too stupid! You usually looked so brilliant, yet why are you turning into a malleable fool when in front of Yang Shi Han? Can’t you see that Yang Shi Han is taking advantage of the situation?”

“Please don’t put it that way, Your Ladyship. It was indeed I, who was too impulsive,” Mo Cheng Xuan says.

Mo Qi Qi is downright speechless now.

“Since General Mo is admitting fault, do not blame bengong for punishing you.”

Mo Qi Qi points at Yang Shi Han angrily, “Do not step over the line, Yang Shi Han! Do you really think my brother will not act against you!”

Yang Shi Han says, “Are you threatening chenqie, Your Ladyship? Chenqie originally did not want to punish him too hard, he is still after all, a meritous official of Hua Chen Kingdom. Bengongdoes not wish to be hated by the common people. Chenqie originally wanted him to atone his mistakes by compensating chenqie with a brand new dress, but who would have thought that the empress would be rushing over, accusing chenqie things. Now, chenqie is really angry. If the empress does not wish for chenqie to make this matter big, you should kneel and ask for forgiveness. Perhaps, chenqie will let go of your brother.”

Seeing Yang Shi Han purposely making things hard for his sister, Mo Cheng Xuan speaks up unhappily, “Yang Guifei, let the guilty one bear his own punishment. This has nothing to do with the empress, stop making things hard for her. You yourself are currently committing a big ethical blunder.”

Yang Shi Han angrily snaps at him, “Mo Cheng Xuan, you are the one who committed the crime, you have no right to speak at the moment! I just want her to kneel in front of me! If she doesn’t, you two should not even dream of leaving this place.”

“Don’t cross the line, Yang Shi Han,” scolds Mo Qi Qi.

Yang Shi Han haughtily tips her chin, “Don’t cross the line? Even the empress knows that there is a line not to be crossed? Wasn’t this something that you yourself used to do? You humiliated me in this manner as well, have you forgotten? If you don’t want this matter to reach the emperor, you better do as I ask.”

Mo Qi Qi scoffs at her, “You must be dreaming. Since it has reached this step, let’s bring this matter to His Majesty.”

“What is there to be bring to zhen?” speak of Cao Cao and Cao Cao comes. Jun Qian Che is actually here.
