Dear Readers. Scrapers have recently been devasting our views. At this rate, the site (creativenovels .com) might...let's just hope it doesn't come to that. If you are reading on a scraper site. Please don't.

With such a treasure in hand, Xiao Country could easily obtain information about other countries.

“You’re right. I have already discussed with Tian Chang. He’ll ask Ning Meng Yao to keep a look out.” Xiao Qi Feng was completely relieved.

In Xiao Qi Feng’s heart, Qiao Tian Chang was the same as Xiao Qi Tian. He was his good brother and he was willing to place his trust in him like a real brother.

“Your Highness, you should begin making preparations as well, just in case.”

“Don’t worry. I know what to do.” Xiao Qi Feng nodded. After knowing the news, he couldn’t just wait and do nothing.

Xiao Qi Tian nodded with relief: “Then I’m relieved.”

Qiao Tian Chang quickly returned to White Mountain Village. He spotted Ning Meng Yao sitting in the newly built pavilion by the pond. He couldn’t help but walk over and hug her: “Yao Yao, thank you.”

Ning Meng Yao’s body stiffened as she turned to look at Qiao Tian Chang: “You’re back.”

“Yes, I’m back.” A simple sentence softened Qiao Tian’s heart. Once upon a time, that was something he had wished to hear but he had never gotten the chance to until now when he heard her say it. It calmed his heart.

“How’s the matter?” Ning Meng Yao invited Qiao Tian Chang to have a seat before asking him seriously.

“The emperor is already informed, but Yao Yao, we will still need your help to keep an eye on the other countries’ movements. Although Qi Feng has placed spies in every country, it isn’t the right time to make any movement.”  Qiao Tian Chang didn’t recall telling this to Ning Meng Yao so he told her now, after all, they were husband and wife.

Ning Meng Yao nodded: “Alright, it wouldn’t trouble me.”

“I’m relieved. Yao Yao, really, thank you.” Qiao Tian Chang knew what Ning Meng Yao was thinking. She had only wanted to live a quiet life, and not get involved in these disputes. But for him, she had volunteered to help. He could only blame himself.

Ning Meng Yao patted Qiao Tian Chang’s hand that was holding hers: “Don’t think too much. As the general of the country, I know that you can’t stay out of any war. All I can do is help you investigate and update you on any news.” She could only do her best to help him.

Qiao Tian Chang hugged Ning Meng Yao tightly. She was really the wife every husband could ever wished for.

“Yao Yao, thank you.” Thank you for everything you have done for me.

“You don’t have to thank me.” Ning Meng Yao shook her head. She didn’t want him to act like a stranger with her.

“Okay, it’ll only be for this one time.” Qiao Tian Chang nodded.

The couple sat by the pond and looked at the lotus leaves that had flourished. Soon, the lotus roots in the pond would probably bloom. By then, this pond would look beautiful, right?

When the two of them sat together intimately, Jiang Quan came in: “Missy, Master.”

“What happened, Uncle Jiang? You seem anxious.” Ning Meng Yao looked at Jiang Quan strangely. Just what had happened to make him so anxious? 

“This is the information we’ve received from Ling Country. It has just arrived.” Jiang Quan handed over the letter in his hand.

Ning Meng Yao took a look and had some queries in her heart. What are the Ling Country’s princes up to?

“Tian Chang, you have a look.” Ning Meng Yao handed the letter to Qiao Tian Chang.

After reading it, he frowned and finally concluded: “I’m afraid they’re only doing this to confuse us.”

Ning Meng Yao thought about it and looked at Jiang Quan: “Uncle Jiang, pass this news over and let them figure out if this is indeed true or not.”

“Yes, Missy.”

Only allowed on

Jiang Quan quickly left, leaving Ning Meng Yao still sitting by the pond: “It feels like there’s going to be a major development.”

“Agree, it won’t be long.”


“There aren’t many concubines in Qi Feng’s harem, and all of them are from the time when he was still a prince. The minister has already begun the coronation. If my guess is right, he should be choosing his first wife from the Right Senior Minister family.”

“What you’re saying is when he takes up the throne, people from other countries will come over?” Ning Meng Yao looked at Qiao Tian Chang in surprising.

Qiao Tian Chang nodded: “Yes, I’m confident. The emperor coronation is a big event, and at the same time it’s a grand event. There will be a lot of people coming.”

“I see.” Ning Meng Yao nodded, but she felt that this had little to do with her, so she didn’t question further.
