FTMTEP Chapter 47

Chapter 47:

Zhan Zhen didn’t know what would happen if Empress Xin learned about Xian Sheng’s secret one day, but his mood now was mixed.

He was about to leave with the carriage, and the queen glared at him again: “Are you going to let her go in the carriage by herself? Aren’t you going to accompany her?”

Zhan Zhen frowned, stepped up and raised the curtain of the carriage, and saw Xian Sheng leaning weakly inside.

This carriage was originally specially prepared for her, and the shock absorption was very good, and the seat was still heavily cushioned, but even so, he still looked weak.

Zhan Zhen’s face was strained, but his eyes suddenly became hot.

Xian Sheng raised his eyes to look at him. Zhan Zhen sat in without saying a word, stretched out his hand to hold his shoulders, and lifted the person up to lean against him.

“Husband…”

“Shut up.”

Zhan Zhen said, Xian Sheng shut up obediently. He grasped the corner of Zhan Zhen’s clothes, his eyelashes drooped, and he nestled quietly on Zhan Zhen’s chest, breathing gently, as if he would dissipate at any time.

He didn’t put on the fragrant powder today, and the medicine on his body smelled bitter. Zhan Zhen took a breath and said, “You don’t want to confess, but since you followed me here today, it means you have a guilty conscience.”

Xian Sheng didn’t answer for a while. When he came, he made people speed up the carriage. It was too bumpy. Now he was dizzy after taking a breath. He forced to speak, but did not respond to Zhan Zhen’s last sentence. Instead, he whispered: ” Did mother empress… hurt you?”

Zhan Zhen moved slightly, looking down to see the big beads of sweat on his forehead, then hurriedly looked away, blinked his eyes, and said, “It has nothing to do with you.”

they did not speak any more.

Zhan Zhen seems to have found a reason to stop bully him, even though that reason is outrageous and unbelievable——

When he arrived at the Prince’s Mansion, he gently hugged him down.

Xian Sheng nestled in his arms and was carried into the room by him.

He was sure that Zhan Zhen had him in his heart. It’s just that he was obviously so angry because he didn’t tell him his secret.

There was an impulse in his heart. Since Zhan Zhen didn’t want to pierce this layer of window paper, he might as well pierce it. He didn’t want to give Zhan Zhen a buffer period to sort out his feeling for him, and he didn’t want Zhan Zhen to kill him after getting disgusted with him.

He wanted to meet Zhan Zhen’s anger when he was still gentle with him…. maybe he could die relatively decently.

This marriage was originally a joke. This was true for both Zhan zhen and him.

After Zhan Zhen put him away, he left again. He didn’t bother Xian Sheng any more , and he didn’t seem to be willing to talk to him.

Xian Sheng nestled on the bed, his physical discomfort made him in a daze. He closed his eyes and slept for a while.

In the afternoon, he regained some strength, opened his eyes, and ate something.

His expression was a little peaceful, Ruyi looked a little strange, and while feeding him, he asked: “has The princess and your Royal Highness reconciled?”

Xian Sheng smiled, opened his mouth and took a sip from the soup, his eyes fell on Yuehua who was on one side and said: “This trip to Jin Country is really not easy. Thank you for your hard work.

“We don’t work hard.” Yuehua gave him a gentle look and said: The hard work is that The princess having to deal with the prince.”

“It shouldn’t be like this…” Ruyi whispered: “Who would have thought that the prince could not wait to marry the princess. If he had time to persuade him, he might be able to change his mind.”

“The wedding was supposed to be this year… Actually, our Nanyang princess also looks very beautiful.” Yuehua sighed: “If only the crown prince is willing.”

“Who would like to eat congee and side dishes after seeing the delicacies of mountains and seafood?” Ruyi said: “The princess told him several times in the letter before he came, and he just wanted only the princess…”

“When you came this time, you were be prepared for life and death. I feel very grateful.”

Yuehua got up and walked over, and said, “Did he really find out?”

“If I am killed, you will have to commit suicide.” Xian Sheng said: “This trip, it is really a bit difficult.”

Ruyi opened her eyes wide and was uncertain. She opened her mouth to say something, but Yuehua stopped her. She walked over and gently supported Xian Sheng to lie down, patted him and coaxed: “If you are tired, go to sleep.”

Xian Sheng closed his eyes, and Yuehua said in a low voice: “In the next life, you must be healthy.”

Xian Sheng fell asleep. He felt that he had entered a misty hall. Countless immortals walked towards him, and one of them said: “You are back.”

He later realized that he was actually a reincarnated immortal.

He thought to himself, it’s no wonder that I have been lingering and sick all my life. Good clothes and food can’t keep you healthy. I have to meet a bully enemy like Zhan Zhen. It’s really have been hard for me.

He vowed never to descend again.

After waking up from a sound sleep, he realize it’s just a dream.

He looked in a trance, and found that someone was holding his pulse and calling him: “Can you hear me?”

Xian Sheng opened his eyes with great effort. It was Qi Sile. He frowned and said, “You are feverish again, eat this.”

Xian Sheng opened his mouth, a pill slipped into his throat, and Qi Sile put two needles on his head.

Then he asked Xian Sheng, “What’s wrong with you?”

Xian Sheng looked at him for a while and asked, “Where is Zhan Zhen?”

“He’s still in the study. He didn’t come back. Your maid said that you are not right. Let me check.” He saw that Xian Sheng seemed to have no desire to survive. It was a bit difficult, and his brows kept frowning: “Are you okay? ”

“Not good.” Xian Sheng said softly, “Brother… can you do me a favor for Master’s ( t/n the Taoist ) sake.”

“go ahead.”

“In my clothes, there is a letter. Help me and pass it to my brother.”

Qi Sile has the illusion that once he promised, he will return to the west (t/n- heaven). He said: “If you’re planning do something that is against to the Great Jin Dynasty, you shouldn’t.”

“…I’m a man.” Xian Sheng looked at his expression, Qi Sile moved her lips, and said, “I guessed.”

“Zhan Zhen, knows… I, it doesn’t matter if I die, I just want to keep my brother from coming to visit me.”

Qi Sile’s eyes were red, and he said, “Zhan Zhen loves you so much that he won’t kill you.”

“You don’t understand… I humiliated him. Yesterday he wanted to kill me.”

Qi Sile didn’t speak for a while, he suddenly felt a gust of wind coming from the window, his eyes moved slightly, and he said: “If he doesn’t accept you, I can take you away.”

Xian Sheng was stunned, and then he laughed: “I can’t walk anymore.”

Qi Sile raised his hand, put another needle in his head, and said, “You are too worried now, so take a good rest and give him some time.”

Xian Sheng wanted to say something more, suddenly a voice came from the door, like someone was pounding on the wall. He subconsciously grabbed Qi Sile’s hand and begged, “Save my brother.”

“I promise you, but you also want to promise me to take a few more steps, okay?”

{‘Crash!!’…}

When there was a shattered sound, Qi Sile hit on Xian Sheng’s sleep acupoint, slowly pulled out the silver needle, packed his things and walked over, and saw Zhan Zhen’s sullen face.

He laughed: “What’s the matter? He’s not dead yet.”

” I let you see a doctor, I didn’t let you to flirt with her.” Zhan Zhen was like a hedgehog, with his thorns exposed.

Qi Sile glanced at the room and smiled: ” is it so hard for you to accept his secret?”

“It has nothing to do with you.” He might kill Qi Sile as he continues. He turned around and wanted to enter the house, but Qi Sile’s eyes showed a bit of indifference, “He will die.”

Zhan Zhen’s hand pushing the door stopped, and Qi Sile said again: “It’s really going to die.”

He said, “just go in If you want him to die.”

Zhan Zhen put his hand on the door, and Ruyi and Yuehua were driven away by him. There are only two of them here. Zhan Zhen waited a long time before saying, “What do you know…”

“I don’t know anything; I only know that there is only one life.” Qi Sile’s gaze fell on the sachet around his waist, and said: “The year you were born, Taoist priest Lingqiu said that you have too much evil spirit in your life. At the age of three, his Majesty drove him out of the country in rage. Three years later, you suffered a strange illness and your life was hanging by a thread. He sent something that could protect your life, do you remember?”

Zhan Zhen subconsciously touched the sachet around his waist and said, “Why are you saying this?”

“Do you know what is in it?”

“A talisman” The sachet is often replaced, but the contents in it have never been changed. Zhan Zhen carried it with him, how could he not know it?

“You have a very strong life. If you can’t hurt others, you will definitely hurt yourself. Your Majesty has taken you to kill the bandits and murder, and even when you were fourteen, he let you lead the army in the war. That time, you threw away this talisman and almost died under Qin Tao, “didn’t you?”

“Just stayed in the palace.”

“Do you know what is in the talisman paper?”

Zhan Zhen frowned: “How do I know?”

“Your life is too strong and easy to break. Only by sharing it with someone with a light life can you protect yourself from backlash. The more half-dead the person is, the better the effect.”

Zhan Zhen’s pupils trembled, and suddenly turned around: “What are you trying to say?!”

“Would you like to open it and see, what’s in this sachet?”

Zhan Zhen’s expression changed. He turned around and pushed the door to enter. Qi Sile rubbed his forehead and sighed: “If it weren’t the case… I would have exposed him and took him away a long time ago.

Xian Sheng slept very deeply. When he woke up, the discomfort finally disappeared. He was at a loss for a while, slowly opened his eyes, and suddenly heard rapid breathing in his ears.  It ranged and then slowly weighed down.

He turned his face and saw Zhan Zhen. He didn’t know how long he had been staring at him for. His face was a little haggard, but his expression was taut and his eyes were very complex.

“Husband…”

Zhan Zhen had a pause, and suddenly stood up, the chair under his butt was kicked down, his lips trembled, and he turned to leave, Xian Sheng said hurriedly: “husband.”

Zhan Zhen stopped and Xian Sheng stood up and got up. Looking at his back, his heartbeat slowly stabilized. He said, ” I’m very grateful that you didn’t expose me yesterday.”

Zhan Zhen resolutely said: “Is there anything to debunk…I don’t know what you are talking about.”

Xian Sheng smiled. At this time, he still refused to face the truth. He could only say: ” as husband and wife, I don’t want to lie to you anymore… Yes, I am a man.”

Even if he had guessed it a long time ago but when the truth came out like this, Zhan Zhen’s brain was still blank, his lips squirmed, and for a while he couldn’t find the right words to say.

He wants to say something, but his throat seems to be blocked.

Xian Sheng faintly knew Qi Sile’s personality, and he would surely accomplish what he promised. He looked at Zhan Zhen’s back with a little nostalgia, thinking about Zhan Zhen’s struggle in the past two days, thinking about this hypocritical marriage…rather than torturing each other, it is better to cut it off.

“Zhan Zhen.” He smiled gently: “Everything about me is fake, my gender, title, body… and the fact that I like you.”

“It’s all fake.”
