Gu Fuzhou meant to let the emperor take the initiative to abolish Xiao Cheng’s crown prince. It’s not easy. The emperor refused to establish a reserve for decades after he ascended the throne. He said it was prudent, but in fact he also raised Gu. He turned a blind eye to the struggle of the princes in order to wait for the final winner.
Four years ago, Xiao Cheng stood out from the princes and proved to the emperor that he was the only choice for the crown prince. Therefore, several other princes died and abandoned, leaving only one fool and one fool. The price of seizing the line is so high that the Xiao family can’t afford a second time in a short time. Even if Xiao Cheng has been slack in the government recently, and even if Xiao Yu can make any great achievements, the emperor will not change the crown prince.
Unless Xiao Cheng did something that the emperor would never tolerate. Even if he defiled the harem, the emperor might protect him; Only such a great crime as regicide, rebellion, collusion and betrayal can shake his position as a prince.
But although Xiao Cheng was bent on looking for Shen Huai knowledge, she didn’t completely lose her mind. Shen Huaizhi just changed him from a smart man to an ordinary man. He knew that as long as he didn’t make any big mistakes, the country would be his sooner or later. How could he kill the king, conspire with the enemy and betray the country.
Lin Qingyu expressed his doubts. Gu Fuzhou said, “do you remember the six names I wrote?”
“I remember. Xiao Cheng, Shen Huaizhi; Xiao Yu, Xi Rong; Xiao Li, Queen.”
“They are each other’s weaknesses. If they want to make an article on one of them, the best breakthrough is on the other person – this is the general rule of the whole book Huai Bu Zhi Jun.” Gu Fuzhou said, “with this rule, it’s not difficult for us to see that if we want Xiao Cheng to do anything crazy, we still have to work hard on Shen Huai Zhi.”
Lin Qingyu mused, “you’re right, but now no one knows the whereabouts of Shen Huaizhi.”
Gu Fuzhou said slowly, “don’t worry. Give me time for a song. I’ll find a way.”
Lin Qingyu said, “you can’t measure your strength.” no matter how smart Gu Fuzhou is, he can’t come up with a comprehensive way in such a short time. He thought it would take Gu Fuzhou two or three days to give him an answer. Unexpectedly, Gu Fuzhou asked, “did you tell Xiao Cheng that Shen Huaizhi might escape to the north?”
“HMM.” the northern territory is located in the far north of Dayu. The king of the northern territory is the only king of Dayu with a different surname. It can be said that it was a big trouble for the imperial court before Princess Jingchun and his relatives. Even now, the emperor also took many precautions against the northern king. He made Xiao Cheng think that Shen Huaizhi might be in the north. Naturally, Xiao Cheng would send more people to the north to look for him. The confidants of the crown prince of a country run to the north in batches, saying they are catching assassins, but if they are too frequent and careful, they will certainly lead to dissatisfaction and even suspicion of the emperor.
Lin Qingyu said this at the beginning in order to plant a seed of doubt in the emperor’s heart. As for whether the seed can grow, he is not fully sure.
Thinking of this, Lin Qingyu vaguely guessed Gu Fuzhou’s idea: “do you want to use the northern territory…? but since Princess Jingchun got married, the relationship between the Northern Territory and the capital can be described as brotherhood and brotherhood. The king of the northern territory will not rebel at this time. He has no reason to rebel.”
Gu Fuzhou only said, “call Zhang Shiquan later and let him do something.”
After Lin Qingyu coerced Nan’an Hou into submission with private salt, Zhang Shiquan naturally could not continue to stay in Hou’s house. Zhang Shiquan was thorough and reliable, and loyal to him. Lin Qingyu invited him to the general’s house to continue to take care of the accounts and affairs for himself.
“Let him find a wave of reliable people in the north and spread a rumor and a truth.”
Lin Qingyu asked, “what is the rumor and what is the truth.”
“Of course, the rumor is that the king of the North supports his troops and respects himself. It is clear that he is not willing to surrender. He wants to lead his troops South and take the capital directly.”
Lin Qingyu disagreed: “your rumors can only be rumors. Even if they reach the emperor’s ears, the emperor can only be a little suspicious.”
“Listen to me finish the other truth first.”
Lin Qingyu is patient: “you say.”
Gu Fuzhou’s lips were smiling, and a good play was about to appear. “The reason why the king of the North wanted to oppose was because the imperial court gave Princess Jingchun, who was a boy, to the north and his relatives four years ago.”
Lin Qingyu was stunned: “what?”
Unabashedly shocked, the cool beauty is a kind of loveliness that can never be seen at ordinary times. If her eyes with autumn water are open, her lips are not red, and Gu Fuzhou wants to kiss him.
“When Jingchun entered the palace, he was mistaken for a palace maid and protected by Xiao Cheng, so his identity has not been revealed. Only Xiao Cheng and Shen Huai know his secret. Of course, there are our readers.” Gu Fuzhou said, “later, the king of the North fell in love with him and wanted to marry him as a princess. He was also afraid of being exposed and causing death.”
Lin Qingyu has never heard of such outrageous things: “how can a palace maid be a man for so many years? Are other people in the palace stupid?”
Gu Fuzhou shrugged: “don’t ask, asking is the need of the plot.”
Lin Qingyu still couldn’t believe it: “the king of the North should have known it long ago. Why didn’t there be any movement?”
“Calculate the timeline. The king of northern territory should know the second year after Jingchun married. But at that time, he had fallen in love with Jingchun and loved deeply. What could he do? Of course, he chose to forgive. For the sake of the overall situation, the king of Northern Territory didn’t tell others about it. Jingchun has always been a woman’s dress.”
Lin Qingyu couldn’t help but say, “I won’t know until the next year. Don’t they have a bridal chamber?”
“Who says that if you become a relative, you must have a bridal chamber.” Gu Fuzhou said bitterly, “we have become two times, and we don’t have a bridal chamber. The king of northern territory is an upright gentleman and doesn’t do love without love.”
When Gu Fuzhou said this, Lin Qingyu suddenly felt that the story was not too outrageous. The princess who stopped fighting and married was actually a man, which can indeed be the reason for the king of Northern Territory to start a rebellion. Even if the northern border king doesn’t want to rebel at all, the court will think he has a rebellious heart after knowing this. In this way, the doubts he buried in the emperor’s heart can play the greatest role.
Lin Qingyu pondered for a long time and suddenly asked, “you knew about it long ago. Why did you tell me now?”
Gu Fuzhou didn’t think he was wrong, but he couldn’t tell the truth: “the so-called mountains and rivers have no way to doubt, willows and flowers have another village – this kind of thing is interesting to say at the right time, which makes you suddenly open up after you doubt your life and suddenly feel that your future is bright and rotten. You don’t know how lovely your expression is,” Gu Fuzhou said with endless aftertaste, “I’ll probably see it once in my life.”
Lin Qingyu: ”
“Also, who said that no one knew the whereabouts of Shen Huaizhi?” Gu Fuzhou smiled a little bad. “I know. The original book wrote where Shen Huaizhi left the capital. Although the plot changed under your and my intervention, as long as you look along that route, you should be able to get a clue.”
Lin Qingyu sneered: “do you think you are very powerful? Do you want me to give you a prize?”
Gu Fuzhou realized that something was wrong and blinked: “hey?”
Gu Fuzhou didn’t take the initiative to tell him the important clues, but he pretended in front of him. Lin Qingyu was so angry that he wanted to poison him, and because he couldn’t bear to do it, he simply ignored him.
Gu Fuzhou was deeply aware of his mistake. He pleaded guilty, knelt at the head of the bed at night, and told all the stories he remembered in Huai Bu Jun. even the details of the first time Xiao Cheng and Shen Huai went to bed after they reunited.
The excitement he was saying was coldly interrupted by Lin Qingyu: “why do you remember these stories so clearly?”
Gu Fuzhou sighed innocently, “I don’t want to, but the author’s writing is too detailed and exaggerated, which has left a great shadow in my heart. You know, at the age of 17, I don’t even know how men love each other. The author wrote thousands of words about Xiao Cheng finding a good jade potential and playing with her own Double Dragons into the sea. My expression at that time was like this -” Gu Fuzhou picked up a book, wrinkled his facial features and vividly restored the situation at that time. “This is all right? I can’t get in. I don’t think I can get in.”
Lin Qingyu jumped on his forehead: “… Enough, shut up.”
Later, Lin Qingyu sent Zhang Shiquan to the north. On the other side, Gu Fuzhou picked up several capable government soldiers and followed his planned route to find the whereabouts of Shen Huaizhi.
In the twinkling of an eye, it is the 14th day of the first month. Tomorrow is the Shangyuan Festival.
Every year, the Shangyuan Festival is the busiest time of the year in Beijing. There is a curfew in Beijing at ordinary times, and people are not allowed to go out after night. During the Lantern Festival, the curfew in Beijing is temporarily relaxed because of the Lantern Festival.
Gu Fuzhou has been to Dayu for two years and hasn’t had the Lantern Festival yet: “I heard that Shangyuan Festival is equivalent to Carnival for you. Is this true?”
“Carnival?” Lin Qingyu said with a faint smile, “that’s not bad.”
On the night of Shangyuan Festival, Dayu’s Lantern tours are popular. It’s night. The capital is a sea of lanterns. Books are fascinated by lanterns. There are a variety of operas. Women travel in groups. At the head of the willow shoot on the moon, after dusk. The women among the girlfriends can only come out in Shangyuan to meet the men they like for a while.
When Gu Fuzhou heard the last sentence, he was slightly surprised and said, “actually? I thought you Dayu people generally don’t date before marriage, and the marriage affairs are all decided by your parents.”
Lin Qingyu moved in his heart and asked, “what does’ dating ‘mean?”
Gu Fuzhou patiently explained to him and mentioned the allusions: “You see, the big ships in the canal drag small boats. When they get close to the shore, the big ships eat water and are difficult to reach the shore. At this time, the small boats can unload and go ashore, so they depend on each other back and forth ①. Therefore, in my hometown, ‘dating’ means that two people depend on each other after they fall in love and are inseparable. In your words, it probably means holding the hand of their son and growing old together with their son.”
Lin Qingyu said softly, “in this way, ‘dating’ is also the meaning of love?”
Lin Qingyu looked at him meaningfully: “Oh.”
