Queen Mother is a Scientist - Chapter 7.2
Big Beard looked at the radish that was handed over by Hua Qingxue and was in a complicated mood, but the grain store guy was grinning beside him, making him very embarrassed.
However, he only froze for a moment and quickly responded. He put the radish in his hand and advised: “It’s cold and slippery. Be careful on the way, Miss.” Then, he turned and walked away.
In his heart, he silently confirmed one thing: this woman doesn’t know martial arts. Guaranteed.
Hua Qingxue looked at the back of Big Beard leaving, standing tall and loose, walking briskly like an arrow.
She was a little dazed, thinking: although this man looks cold-hearted and cool, his heart is good.
At this moment, Fifth Elder Qin stood respectfully in front of Li Jingnan——
When Fifth Elder Qin and Big Beard entered Renqiu City, they pretended to be bodyguards of a band of traveling merchants. They already knew the route and were waiting for the merchant guide to finish his work, then they would be able to leave the city.
Generally, the merchants will stay in the city for ten and a half days, and now, there are only seven or eight days left before they leave the city. As long as there is no problem during those days, then they should be able to send the prince back to the Capital smoothly.
Fifth Elder Qin meant to let Li Jingnan prepare for two days, so he would be ready to leave the city with them on the spot. As for Hua Qingxue, her identity is unknown, so it is better to not take her too. What’s more, is that Li Jingnan is just a child, so he is easier to hide. However, Hua Qingxue is a woman and if there are women in a group of businessmen, then it was eye-catching. If this results in the prince not being able to leave the city smoothly, it would be worse for them.
After listening to Fifth Elder Qin’s persuasive explanation, Li Jingnan felt like his eyes and throat were a little dry, and the joy of seeing Fifth Elder Qin for the first time started to fade away.
“She’s not a spy…” Li Jingnan sighed. “When I found her, she only had one last breath left. Sixteen said that if I came a quarter of an hour later, she might have froze to death on that mountain…Say, where in the world can there be such a stupid spy? What’s more is if she had the intention to be an informant, her master would surely arrange a reasonable identity for her and not have her randomly come out of nowhere.”
Fifth Elder Qin scratched the back of his head and felt helpless. “Your Highness, if we take her with us out of the city, the risk would be too great, in this case…”
Li Jingnan waved his hand, without too much expression on his face and his voice flat, “I know, but she saved my life. Please call General Fu to see me. I’m not trying to put you guys in a tight situation. I just want to ask General Fu face to face to see if he really can’t bring her.”
Fifth Elder Qin felt conflict in his heart. Hearing his Highness’s words like this made even him think that it was not proper to leave a weak woman behind. It’s just not a good idea. Anyway, he was just a messenger. Big brother is in charge of everything, he will just do whatever Big Brother tells him to do.
When Fifth Elder Qin returned to the inn that the merchants were staying at, Big Beard had already returned.
Fifth Elder Qin was surprised to see so many radishes piled up by the door. “Big Brother, where did the radishes come from?”
Big Beard didn’t answer him, he just lightly asked, “What did your Highness say?”
Fifth Elder Qin closed the door behind him, carefully looked at the face of Big Beard, and replied, “His Highness wants to see you and ask if he can take the woman out of the city.”
Yes, this man is who the Prince waited the stars and moon for, General Fu.
General Fu, whose real name is Fu Tingye, is the eldest son of Hou Fusheng of Weiyuan in the great Qi Dynasty. His father and uncles are all military generals, so he began following in his father’s footsteps at a young age. Before the invasion of the great Liao Dynasty, he had been guarding against barbarians in the west of the state of Qi. A year ago, three states were lost, so the emperor sent him here, the nearest place to the Liao people.
Fu Tingye seemed to have expected the Prince to do this and did not think it was strange at all. “One more thing is better than one less, just follow the original plan.”
When Fifth Elder Qin saw him say this, he looked awestruck, “Is she a spy? Otherwise, why doesn’t Big Brother want to take her out of the city?”
Big Brother, known as Fu Tingye, shook his head gently. “I tested her, she never learned martial arts.”
Not only did she never practice martial arts, she was also extremely weak. She was even inferior to the village women.
Fifth Elder Qin rested his case and asked: “Since she is not a spy, let’s try to find a way to take her with us. I think she is very important to his Highness.”
Fu Tingye shook his head.
