Chapter 116: The Royal Princess (22)
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
Princess Rong Hua sank into the water after struggling for a while. The water’s surface soon evened out again.
“I’ve satisfied your request, Royal Princess, now can you give me the painting?”
“Of course.” Ming Shu agreed readily.
Ming Shu pa.s.sed the painting to Qi Hongwei, and the latter hurriedly reached out to take it. However, before he touched the painting, several dark figures suddenly jumped out of the water, trying to grab the painting.
Qi Hongwei had to give up the painting first. He and the figures in black had trapped each other. Ming Shu stepped back to the edge of the boat with the painting, and suddenly a whoosh sounded from behind her. She bent down out of reflex.
It was Cheng Jinyun. She appeared out of nowhere once more. After failing to land the first strike, she quickly dropped to the ground opposite of Ming Shu, staring at her with cold eyes. “Give me the painting.”
“Why?” Ming Shu smiled and provoked, “You wish.”
Cheng Jinyun shouldn’t have any knowledge of Kung Fu, so how did she come to this boat? Getting on the boat may not require Kung Fu, but judging by her actions, it seemed she was not unfamiliar with Kung Fu. So she’d actually been hiding her strength before?
The plot was developing a bit incorrectly!
[The fake female protagonist herself is a variable, so you don’t have to make a fuss, Guest, just focus on your mission and gain enough Hatred Points.] The Harmony System came online just in time to remind Ming Shu.
“…” So except for the Hatred Points, the rest is unimportant, right?
[Our original mission is to gain Hatred Points.] Always remembering the task at hand is an internal quality that a system should have.
“…” It sounds a bit reasonable?
“Shen Ci, hanging onto that painting only leads to a dead end.” Cheng Jinyun lowered her voice and warned, “Don’t you see how many people are aiming for this painting now?”
“So what?” Ming Shu stopped thinking other things. “Because you want the painting, I have to give it up? Is it you are losing your mind, or I will be acting stupidly?”
She thinks I am the Doraemon, how funny!
“With your ability, do you think you can protect this painting under such circ.u.mstances?” Noticing some people coming over, Cheng Jinyun became a little anxious. “Give me the painting!”
Cheng Jinyun gritted her teeth, making up her mind. She directly waved her hand to attack Ming Shu with a blast of swift, fierce wind.
Ming Shu narrowed her eyes but didn’t avoid it, waiting to be hit by the force of that wind.
However, a shadow flashed in front of her, and the wind was easily dissolved, disappearing into the air.
Mu Huai reached out to pull Ming Shu into his arms. He held her around the waist with one hand and employed Kung Fu to rapidly leave Cheng Jinyun’s range of attack.
The two fell to the second level of the boat. Mu Huai released Ming Shu and stared at her coldly. “Next time you won’t be so lucky.”
An angry and cold tone…
Ming Shu was even angrier, and her smile looked a bit ferocious. “I didn’t ask you to save me!” I was trying to commit suicide!
“Royal Princess, you mean that I shouldn’t have saved you?” Mu Huai snorted. He had saved her. Even if she didn’t appreciate it, there was no need to be ungrateful!
“If it weren’t for me, you would have been one of those bodies.”
“Well, I’m happy to be one, what does it have to do with you?”
“If you were not holding the painting, you think I’d want to save you?” Mu Huai almost exploded. How could there be such an annoying person?
Ming Shu narrowed her eyes again and her lips slightly curled. “I knew you wouldn’t be so kind.”
It’s all for this painting.
Mu Huai didn’t say anything. After a while, he reached out and said, “Give me the painting.”

“King Huai, what do you intend to do?” Qi Hongwei said in uncontrollable anger, his voice shaking.
“Even if you kill her, the painting is gone.” Mu Huai stated this fact in a cold voice.
“She must pay for it. It’s none of your business, go away!” He had planned everything for so long, and it was all for the painting. Now because of the stupid actions of this woman, everything was ruined. How could he let her go!
Mu Huai didn’t give in and said very slowly, “If you want to take her, take me first.”
Qi Hongwei sneered again. “Ho, who would have imagined this? That one day the n.o.ble King Huai should say something like this because of a woman.”
But to be honest, Qi Hongwei didn’t know much about King Huai. This King Huai didn’t seem to have any weaknesses. In the borderland, he spent most of his time training soldiers.
Mu Huai looked at Qi Hongwei without saying a word. Perfect acting!
Qi Hongwei gritted his teeth. “King Huai, you also came for the Dragon Root. Now the painting is gone, so no one can find the Dragon Root. Aren’t you angry?”
“Dragon Root? Is it edible?” Ming Shu poked her head out from behind Mu Huai.
Seeing Ming Shu’s smiling face, Qi Hongwei got angrier and angrier. He wished to tear it up! He said furiously, “Dragon Root is the foundation of the Wushang Dynasty. As long as the Dragon Root is found, the days of the Wushang Dynasty will be numbered.”
“Then it’s inedible. For a thing you can’t eat, do you really need to fight so hard? You sure are funny, aren’t you?”
Man proposes and G.o.d disposes. Do you really think you can change the world?
Where have you put the natural law?
Be careful, human. The natural law might punish and devour all of you.
Qi Hongwei: “…” What do you understand besides eating? How did this stupid woman become a royal princess, by eating?
Mu Huai reached out and nudged Ming Shu’s head back. “I came for a different purpose. As long as the painting does not fall into your hands, I don’t care if it is intact or not.”
“Impressive, King Huai. I didn’t expect you would work yourself to the bone for the emperor. After all, ‘His Majesty’ treated you that way.” Qi Hongwei ridiculed Mu Huai.
“It has nothing to do with him.” I did this for the mission, and it has nothing to do with my d.a.m.n relationship with the emperor.
