Fierce “Husband” – Chapter 157.1

Without any delay along the way, even lunch was taken care of on the carriage. Everyone wanted to reach the capital as soon as possible. In the evening, just before the city gates closed, the large group finally arrived in the capital. To be honest, Shao Yunan was a bit nervous. He was about to meet the two most powerful people in the country. This was the capital of the ancient dynasty, and regardless of its prosperity compared to the modern capital, the term “capital” represented more than just its level of prosperity.


Wang Shijing, who also visited the capital for the first time, felt a bit nervous. Wang Qing and Wang Nizi lifted the curtain of the carriage to look outside; the city gates were so high. Jiang Moxi was not excited; he had no good feelings towards the capital.


With King Luo Rong and Eunuch An, their group smoothly passed through the city gates. However, there was a small incident. Brother Tiger and Big and Little Gold were quite eye-catching. When they appeared outside the city, the soldiers guarding the city thought a fierce tiger was descending from the mountain. It caused a commotion, and they almost shot arrows. Fortunately, King Luo Rong, Eunuch An, and others intervened in time. With three big tigers, their group drew a lot of attention. Many people stopped to watch, asking whose young master was so arrogant that he could even tame three large beasts.


Inside the city, after parting ways with Jiang Moxi, he had to go meet Elder Weng. He also had to take the things Shao Yunan brought to Elder Weng. Wang Shijing and Shao Yunan would follow Eunuch An to their residence first. After meeting the Emperor and the Empress later, they would also go to pay respects at the Imperial Tutor’s residence.


Eunuch An led them to the mansion Qian Sui had arranged for them. The mansion of the Minister of Revenue was one of the top-notch residences in the capital. Regardless of whether Wang Shijing and Shao Yunan liked the mansion after seeing it, Brother Tiger and Big and Little Gold liked it very much. They had been restrained all the way here. Wang Shijing and Shao Yunan hadn’t stepped through the main gate yet, but they had already run into the mansion and disappeared in an instant.


The sealed former Minister of Revenue’s mansion unexpectedly had occupants. Accompanied by the influential Eunuch An and King Luo Rong, the attention of various people in the capital was quickly drawn to this mysterious nobleman who had arrived. Inwardly, Shao Yunan was banging his head; it was impossible to keep a low profile now. However, after entering the mansion, he still liked it. This private garden mansion, which would be impossible to buy in modern times without several billion, was now bestowed upon him by the most powerful person in the country, completely free of charge. Shao Yunan leaned against Wang Shijing and asked, “Shijing, am I dreaming?”


“No.” Wang Shijing didn’t expect the mansion to be so good. “We can move in with just our bags. This is amazing. I thought our mansion was luxurious enough, but compared to the mansion of a first-rank official, it’s like a farmhouse.”


“I still think our mansion is better; you designed it.” Alright, he liked to hear that. Looking up, he saw three children disappearing. Shao Yunan hastily shouted, “Moxi! It’s getting dark; don’t run around with them. We’ll be going out later.” Jiang Moxi turned around, holding Nizi and bringing back Wang Qing.


Wang Shijing told Qin Niang which things to leave and which things Eunuch An should take away. After finishing the instructions, he and Shao Yunan found a place to freshen up and change their clothes. They couldn’t just go like this to meet royalty. Here, the casually inattentive King Luo Rong, who had just finished chatting with Eunuch An, walked over to Guo Zimu and softly asked, “Zimu, are you.. are you still coming to my mansion?”


King Luo Rong felt like he had miscalculated. He didn’t expect the Emperor’s actions to be so quick. Shao Yunan and Wang Shijing hadn’t arrived in the capital yet and the mansion had already been arranged. Now he had no reason (excuse) to invite Guo Zimu to his place. Guo Zimu lowered his head and asked softly, “Do you, do you not want me to come?”


“How could that be!” King Luo Rong was happy and quickly said, “I thought you felt this place was good and didn’t want to go.”


“…If I’m not going. Is there someone to cook for you? Make some snacks?” King Luo Rong vigorously shook his head. “No, no. I’m used to eating your food; the food made by the King Mansion’s chef is only fit for feeding animals.” Hey, hey, King Luo Rong, that’s not a good thing to say.


Waiting for Wang Shijing and Shao Yunan to finish packing, Eunuch An saw King Luo Rong talking privately with Guo Zimu and turned a blind eye. Not waiting too long, Wang Shijing and Shao Yunan came over, both wearing a very formal and high-end suit, but with relatively low-key colors. The three children, who had clearly washed their faces and changed clothes, also came together.


Shao Yunan said, “Uncle An, the three children, little Guo, and the big tiger brothers are staying at King Rong’s place. I’m afraid Shijing and I will be busy recently and won’t be able to take care of them. The children also don’t want to stay at their uncle’s house. Little Guo’s situation, as you know, is a bit special. Shijing and I discussed it and felt that it’s safer for little Guo to stay at Lord Wang’s place and little Guo can also take care of the children.”


King Luo Rong laughed, thinking in his heart that Shao Yunan and Wang Shijing were “understanding,” and quickly said, “That’s great! My mansion is quiet, it’s best for Zimu and the children to stay there. There’s plenty of space at my place and the tigers won’t be restricted there either. You guys will definitely be busy for a while, rest assured and leave the children to me.”


Guo Zimu also chuckled in his heart, thinking that Yunan and Shijing really understood his mind. By saying this, Shao Yunan dispelled any speculation that Guo Zimu staying at the King Mansion would cause.


It was completely dark outside and they still had to go meet the Empress. Eunuch An didn’t delay either. The children went with Guo Zimu to King Rong’s Mansion first. They would formally visit the Empress tomorrow. Originally, Shao Yunan could come tomorrow, but with so many people waiting to see him, he couldn’t wait until tomorrow.


At this moment, in the General’s Mansion, the Old General, Old Lady, and the old official were waiting anxiously in the An Si Courtyard. Dai Yingxiang, Dai Mingge, and the younger generation of children all wanted to meet Shao Yunan, but were rejected by the Old General. He had just arrived in the capital and they didn’t want to scare him away. Shao Yunan would stay in the capital for a while and there would be plenty of opportunities in the future. 


Because it was the Empress who wanted to meet Shao Yunan and Wang Shijing, the Old General and the others couldn’t exceed their limits by waiting in the main hall. They could only wait in the An Si Courtyard where Empress was.


For this summoning, Emperor Yongming and Empress attached great importance to it. Tea, snacks, and everything were prepared in the room. Emperor Yongming had no intention of working today and came over from the palace at noon. Elder Weng originally wanted to meet Shao Yunan, but Jiang Kangning would come to see him when he returned to the capital. So Elder Weng restrained himself, anyway, Shao Yunan would come tomorrow. 


Elder Weng had to wait for Jiang Kangning and Elder Cen could go home to see his children and talk to his wife. Elder Cen was eager to see Shao Yunan and Wang Shijing, but he also knew he probably had to wait a while.


They were waiting left and right, but they hadn’t arrived yet. The Old Lady couldn’t help muttering, “Why haven’t they arrived yet? Didn’t they say they had entered the city?” The Old General said, “They brought dozens of carriages of things and also had to go to the new mansion. It might not be that fast.” If Shao Yunan knew that so many people were waiting to see him, he might consider hurrying back to Xiusui Village. He would be scared!


Wang Shijing and Shao Yunan came out of the mansion and split into two groups again. King Luo Rong took Guo Zimu, the three children, and the three big cats back to the King Mansion, while Eunuch An took Shao Yunan and Wang Shijing to the General’s Mansion.
