How to Survive as a Villain - 151
Chapter 151: Of Course I Choose To Protect Him.
At the hazy dusk of twilight, Xiao YuAn finished bandaging the last wounded soldier in the tent. He then went out to wash the dirty cotton cloths stained with blood, when unexpectedly, as soon as he stepped out of the tent with a basin in hand, two soldiers approached him with straight postures. With a rude tone of voice, one of them said: “Are you Physician Xiao?”
“Yes, that’s me.” Xiao YuAn replied suspiciously. “What’s the matter?”
After finishing that sentence, Xiao YuAn suddenly remembered something and his eyes glowed. He then covered his mouth and after coughing lightly, he asked: “Has your Emperor returned from war? Does he want to see me?”
The two soldiers looked at each other, and one of them finally said: “General Huang is summoning you.”
‘General Huang? Huang Yue? What does he want with me?‘
Although Xiao YuAn was confused, he still put down the basin, wiped his hands that were stained with blood from treating the wounded soldiers, and followed the two soldiers towards Huang Yue’s tent.
The two soldiers didn’t have any intention to follow him inside the tent. Instead, they let Xiao YuAn enter the tent with cold expressions on their faces.
Xiao YuAn was puzzled with their treatment as he lifted the tent’s curtain and walked in.
Huang Yue, who was standing in the center of the tent with his hands behind his back, heard the sound of the curtain being lifted and turned around. When he saw Xiao YuAn, he frowned slightly as he stared at the silver mask on Xiao YuAn’s face. After staying completely silent for a while, he said: “The former Emperor of the Northern Kingdom was actually hidden deep inside our Southern Yan barracks.”
Suddenly, his former title was said in such a cold manner. Xiao YuAn, who had long since gotten used to getting addressed with his original name, couldn’t react for a while. However, when he came back to reality, he opened his mouth slightly.
Huang Yue saw that there was a faint confusion in his eyes, and he couldn’t help but sneer: “The former Emperor of the Northern Kingdom is not trying to pretend to be dumb, right? I don’t know if you acted like this when His Majesty told you about the Southern Yan’s sneak attack plan. Maybe you made him feel safe with this amazing act of ignorance?”
“The Emperor? Yan HeQing? What happened to Yan-ge? What sneak attack?!” Xiao YuAn’s mind was in turmoil, as he stepped forward to desperately ask one question after the other. Who could’ve thought that Huang Yue would suddenly snap and swing his arm, slapping Xiao YuAn across the face, which resulted in his mask falling off.
Already knowing that he was the one to blame for his identity being exposed, Xiao YuAn had long expected this would happen. Even though he felt extremely uncomfortable at the moment, he appeared calm on the surface as he bent down to pick up the mask from the floor.
Huang Yue stepped forward. Without any hesitation, he reached out his hand and grabbed Xiao YuAn’s throat, forcing Xiao YuAn to straighten up and look at him.
“…..” Xiao YuAn frowned and grasped Huang Yue’s wrist, stopping him from exerting too much force. His eyes couldn’t help but stare at the silver mask on the ground.
Huang Yue narrowed his eyes as he looked at the man in front of him. ‘I’ve once heard that the former Emperor of the Northern Kingdom was so beautiful, that he didn’t look like a human. Now, I’m able to see that his skin is as beautiful as the snow, and his eyebrows and eyes are extremely charming. He looks just like the vivid painting of an Immortal.‘ Huang Yue sneered: “The Emperor is also a mere mortal that is deceived by beauty.”
Xiao YuAn withdrew his gaze, frowned and then coldly looked at Huang Yue: “I know that you’re a General of the Southern Yan Kingdom, so you must hate everything about the Northern Kingdom. In that case, what do you have to say to me? Is it that interesting to insult others behind their backs?”
“Insult?” Huang Yue narrowed his eyes as his hand lightly squeezed Xiao YuAn’s throat: “He hid the enemy, the former Emperor of the Northern Kingdom, by his side. He disregarded the Southern Yan Kingdom’s homeland hatred. He disregarded the soldiers and the people, whose families were destroyed by the Northern Kingdom. And disregarded the blood, tears and bones of the former Southern Yan Emperor buried in the ground. Aren’t these an insult for the Emperor? His Majesty used to be a male concubine while he stayed in the Northern Kingdom, his pride has long since been shattered into pieces and it will remain so for the rest of his life. It’s extremely sad and pathetic but-….”
Before Huang Yue could finish his speech, Xiao YuAn suddenly twisted Huang Yue’s hand with some force, and then fiercely punched him in the face, causing his face to turn sideways. At that moment, Huang Yue felt a burning pain in his face.
Huang Yue was extremely stunned. He didn’t expect that the former Emperor of the Northern Kingdom, who seemed weak and defenseless, would actually punch him in the face. It was so sudden, that he was caught off guard.
“What the hell do you know?!” Xiao YuAn grabbed Huang Yue’s collar, and his eyes were wide open when he started to scream with a great amount of anger: “Do you even know how much humiliation and abuse Yan HeQing had to experience while in the Northern Kingdom?! Can you even guarantee that you won’t collapse if you were put in his position at that time?! But he survived! Isn’t he working extremely hard for the rise of the Southern Yan Kingdom right now?! When did he forget all the hardships the Southern Yan Kingdom went through? What makes you say such things about him?!”
