Xiu Ran was simply unwilling to believe in Murong Jingxuan's words, and he more or less didn't have any good feelings towards that kind of idiot young miss.

"How about we make a bet?" Murong Jingxuan amusingly said as looked at Xiu Ran's skeptical expression.

Xiu Ran was the shopkeeper of Julongzhai only in name, but as the political hostage from Nanchen, his heart was still thoroughly loyal towards Nanchen. Murong Jingxuan* would constantly received information regarding Nanchen from Xiu Ran.

(*TN: This is my own interjection, since author just used the pronoun 'he' here, thus making the wording kind of confusing.)

Even the death of Qilian Qingyan, he heard from the mouth of Xiu Ran.

"What bet? I'm certainly not interested." Xiu Ran picked up a small teacup and began to taste the tea, however when he looked to Murong Jingxuan, he was expressionless.

"How about you come with me to Bogu Hall? I just happen to need something from that Cui Hanqun." Murong Jingxuan mischievously smiled as he slapped the table, "On the way I can have you meet that Su's fourth miss."

"Che." Xiu Ran wrinkled his brows, "I already said I'm not interested in that Su's fourth miss, why are you making me come with you?"

Murong Jingxuan shook his head, "You'll know when the time comes."

Seeing Murong Jingxuan's expression, Xiu Ran already knew that he wasn't able to turn down his demand. After all, he was currently living in Murong Jingxuan's manor. Although Murong Jingxuan was a Prince* with a different surname, in order to have him under his control, Xuanyuan Hong bestowed him a manor in Diqiu.

(*TN: The original phrase was more along the lines of him being bestowed the same title as a Prince despite having a different surname from the royal family. He's technically a political hostage, but holds the same title as a Prince.)

Nevertheless, if it wasn't for the previous Empress constantly protecting him, he wouldn't have been able to live this long. But in the end, the beauty had passed.

Xiu Ran ultimately still went with Murong Jingxuan to Bogu Hall. Although you could see the entirety of Bogu Hall from the corner building of Julongzhai, if you were to travel by foot, then it was indeed separated by no less than two streets.

When they arrived at Bogu Hall, it was precisely break time. Seeing Murong Jingxuan, all the girls carried a love struck expression. This made Xiu Ran really uncomfortable.

He had always hated this kind of attention.

"Isn't that Murong Shizi?

Shizi, I've yet to reach marriageable age, if someone with ulterior motives hears this, then wouldn't this be damaging to my reputation." Lightly bending her knees, she bowed to Murong Jingxuan, "I hope Shizi will be cautious with words from now on."

Seeing her like that, Murong Jingxuan didn't tease her any further. As he was leaving, he let out a radiant smile towards the crowd, causing the surrounding girls to be lovestruck.

Luo Yixin walked up next to Qingyan and whispered in a small voice, clearly reflecting the concern in her tone, "Qingyan, how did you end up attracting that Murong Shizi, he's not someone you can easily provoke."

Su Qingyan furrowed her brows, seemingly not hearing Luo Yixin's words. That Murong Jingxuan, despite breaking into her bedroom multiple times, he still had the nerve to come to Bogu Hall and leave her with such a difficult problem.

Ah, Su Qingyan bitterly smiled. If only she could obtain the blood jade and create a jade flute, thus have control over the 'Pavilion of Thousand Beasts', then she wouldn't have to suffer such humiliation.

But she still had the opportunity to slowly recover, right?

"Su Qingyan, you shameless slut, not only seducing other men, but how dare you try to seduce Murong Shizi." A girl dressed in pink walked up before her and said harshly. Just when she was about to give Qingyan a slap on the face, her hand suddenly turned dark purple as she started to sense the pain.

Su Qingyan looked to the girl in pink and gently touched her bracelet. Looking up to her, she smiled, "Miss Wei, before stretching out your hand to hit someone, it's best if you check whether you're qualified to."
