Qin Yun was preparing the things he would take with him when he left, while Moschery hesitated and reluctantly lingered. In the end, he still had to see off his soon-to-be wife.
“I’ll let Chen Xiao and Tristana protect you.” The Emperor was still stuffing things into his guide’s travel bag, “The two of them might argue a bit on the way, but if they start fighting, make sure to stay away.”
Qin Yun: “…how many gifts have you prepared for me?”
Moschery, “It will come in handy after all.” He glanced at Qin Yun, “Remember to say good things about me in front of mother-in-law.”
“…” Qin Yun joked, “She would be happy if you would call her mother-in-law.”
Moschery had a look of ‘you owe me something’. He leaned forward, turned his face and kissed Qin Yun’s lips, resting his forehead against his, “I will write to you.”
Qin Yun was confused, “Isn’t there a communication device… We can see each other.”
Moschery took a deep breath, looked at the other person depressedly, and muttered, “Forget it.”
Qin Yun: “??”
Moschery roughly ruffled his bangs, “Don’t miss me.”
The Royal Guards personally escorted Qin Yun to the port of the Imperial Capital. Moschery got off the ship first, unfolded the cloak behind him to wrap his guide in full view, and took the person directly off the ship.
Chen Xiao was waiting for the two of them under Tristana’s Crested Ibis. He saw Moschery and gave a military salute.
“Where’s General Lane?” Qin Yun looked around and couldn’t find Tristana.
Moschery said calmly, “They don’t dare to argue in front of me; the other one must be hiding.”
Qin Yun: “…”
Chen Xiao: “The little cannon girl is so thin-skinned.” He was a little shocked when he saw the luggage behind Qin Yun. “Your Majesty…are you going to move the entire empire back to your mother’s house?”
Because there were so many things, it took the two parties a long time to move them completely. When Qin Yun boarded the Crested Ibis, he couldn’t help but look back at Moschery. His Majesty the Emperor stood under the hatch and looked up at him.
“I will write you a letter.” The sentinel still insisted, “You must read it.”
Qin Yun: “I will read it.” He emphasised with a smile, “I’ll try to memorise them all.”
Moschery also smiled; his smile was very light, the curve of the corners of his lips softened slightly, and the mask on half of his face glowed with a gentle silver light.
“Bon Voyage.” His Majesty the Emperor said calmly. He watched the Crested Ibis slowly close the hatch, blocking Qin Yun’s figure bit by bit.
Zhongyan suddenly rose into the sky, and the dragon let out a long roar, flapping its wings and following the Crested Ibis. Qin Yun pressed against the window of the flight cabin and opened his eyes wide in surprise.
He didn’t know what kind of method Moschery used. He actually ‘pasted’ rhinestones on the back and chest of Zhongyan’s wings. Although the technique was rough and chaotic, he could still vaguely see the shadow of a dragon.
The huge rhinestone dragon flew around the Crested Ibis. Zhongyan turned his belly and flew on his back. He always tried to show Qin Yun the place with the most diamonds, as if he understood that only in this way could the other party see it.
“You have become a veritable golden dragon.” Qin Yun said to himself, almost crying with laughter. He wiped the corners of his eyes and waved to Zhongyan.
There was a message from Moschery on the communicator, “Come back soon.”
After a while, there was another message.
“I miss you already.”
Tristana showed up after waiting for Chen Xiao to go to the c0ckpit. She didn’t look good, and she sniffed. Her expression was almost distorted when she smelled the pheromones left by Chen Xiao.
“Why is he the sentinel who matches me 100%?” Tristana covered her face in despair.
Qin Yun sympathised with her a little, “Your relationship…well, how could it be so bad?”
Tristana said bitterly, “When he was 20 years old, I was only 12 years old. When we first met, this bastard wanted to mark me… Damn it! I was still a loli at that time! Such an innocent, romantic and simple loli! Is he still a human being?! Is he even a human?!”
“…” Qin Yun actually wanted to defend Chen Xiao. A 20-year-old was still very young… The attraction between a 100% match was something that couldn’t be controlled so easily.
“Forget it, let’s not mention that scumbag.” Tristana waved her hands irritably. She crossed her long legs on the chair in front of her and said with a serious expression, “Actually, His Majesty also has his own considerations in letting you go to Bixi this time. In the near future, The imperial family plans to shake up the Cabinet, so it is necessary to let you stay away from the centre of the political storm, but we didn’t rule out that old witch Berlin will jump over the wall to cause trouble for us.”
Qin Yun: “Looking for trouble with me? How?”
Tristana: “Assassination and kidnapping, whatever you can think of, the Cabinet can do it. If not, why do you think His Majesty would send me and Chen Xiao to protect you?”
Qin Yun: “…”
“Although that scumbag and I have always been at loggerheads, in terms of combat power, Lin Dongliang and Skarter are no match for us.” Tristana said condescendingly and proudly, “Don’t worry, this lady will let you safely become the king’s man!”
Qin Yun wiped his sweat, “That’s really… I’m sorry to trouble you…”
On the way back, Moschery was swiping his ‘antique’ grade diamond shell tablet. As expected, a picture of a rhinestone dragon appeared on All Universe 818. Although it was too far away and the rhinestones were too messy to see clearly, the shape of the dragon was impossible to miss.
“Asking for identification!!! Is this the legendary divine spiritual link?!! It’s the first time I’ve seen something like this in my life!!! His Majesty’s dragon is indeed not like our ordinary ones!!! The headline must be long long long long!!!!”
Within a few minutes, there were hundreds of replies on this page. Some people questioned, “Isn’t the spiritual link invisible to ordinary people? I heard that His Majesty’s spiritual link is not even visible to other sentinel and guides… What’s with this sudden posting of rhinestones for?”
There were LS+1 posts at the bottom, and some of them directly thought it was PS, and there was a reason to draw a red circle.
Moschery ignored the other questions. He went to his alt account and replied with three words after the sentence, ‘What’s with this sudden posting of rhinestones for?’
“To coax my wife.”
When Skarter was browsing the post in the morning, he almost burst out laughing when he saw the Emperor’s reply. He invited Lin Dongliang to look at it together and joked, “Probably because, in the past, the shadow of loneliness and growing old alone was too deep. Finally having a wife now… Your Majesty, you really are extraordinary in your efforts.”
Lin Dongliang had a headache. He always felt that the monarch he decided to be loyal to was good at everything, but sometimes, he was too determined and could not be pulled back, even with eight horses in things he believed in.
Of course Moschery knew what they were looking at, but the Emperor only glanced at it lightly, then lowered his head and continued to read his documents.
“Your Majesty… the more you care about Guide Qin, the clearer the Cabinet will know where your weaknesses are.” Lin Dongliang sighed, “Aren’t you worried?”
“What about?” Moschery asked without raising his head.
Lin Dongliang frowned. He couldn’t tell for a moment whether he was worried about the Emperor or Qin Yun, or both.
“He is indeed my weakness.” Moschery said suddenly, closing the document in his hand, “But he is also my armour.”
“Be injured and then get stronger.” The Emperor lifted his chin, calmly looking at the other person. “I won’t make the same mistake twice.”
Qin Yun was about to fall asleep at the bottom of the cabin when he heard the cry of the electronic bird. An emerald coloured fax bird opened its mouth and slowly spit out a handwritten letter.
Qin Yun took a piece of clothing and put it on, then laid the letter flat on his knees.
“It’s very cold in the north. Please keep warm.” The beginning of Moschery’s letter was a bit simple and crude. Qin Yun couldn’t help laughing and got into bed. He continued to read carefully.
“I haven’t written for a long time. It’s not very pretty. Don’t take it personally.” There was a blank line in the middle, “How many times did you miss me today?”
Qin Yun silently counted in his mind and found that he couldn’t count no matter how hard he counted, so he simply gave up.
Moschery went on to write, “I’m suspicious that the Cabinet colluded with Olympus, but due to lack of evidence, the investigation of Eta Star was forced to be suspended. It’s not easy to act against them, but we must also strive to regain control of Skarter’s military authority.”
Qin Yun frowned and looked down.
“PS: Skarter doesn’t do anything right now. He follows Lin Dongliang around every day… Flaunting their love in front of me. It’s truly annoying!”
Qin Yun: “…”
“Zhongyan didn’t want me to remove the diamonds on it. That idiot dragon still thought he was so good-looking. He kept basking in the sun all day long to keep the gold sparkling all the time.”
Qin Yun: “Pfft…”
There was a large section of erased marks in the middle, and it could be seen that it was all complaints about Zhongyan. His Majesty the Emperor probably realised that he was a bit verbose, but he was too embarrassed to show it in front of Qin Yun, so he could only summarise with a somewhat exasperated tone, “I told you not to spoil him too much, but you wouldn’t listen. Now, he’s becoming more unruly. A doting mother spoils the child!”
“…” Qin Yun touched his nose and turned the page.
“Ba Jin made apple pie today, so I had to eat it while you were away.” Moschery added a note at the bottom: “PS: I’m also learning. I’ll make it for you when you come back.”
Qin Yun held a small moment of silence for Ba Jin’s kitchen, and he read the bottom of the letter.
“No matter what happens to the Cabinet and the royal family or what happens to Eta Star or Olympus, I will protect you and never let you be harmed again.” Moschery’s handwriting was deep. He seemed to have been thinking for a long time, and there were even drops of ink marks on the paper.
The Emperor wrote at the end: “I swear on my life that I will give you happiness. — I love you, Moschery•Xi Zhao•Issa.”
AAAAAAAAA, ZHONGYAN SO PRECIOUS!!!!
