Chapter 295: Ending in Failure (II)

Translator: Storm in a Teacup

Long returned to Qiankun Palace. Seeing that Shi was already there, Long immediately walked over.

“Oh? You came back so early today.”

Shi smiled faintly. “Yes. I’ll have lunch with you. I don’t want you to wait for me.”

Long sneered, “You’re so nice.”

Shi raised his eyebrows. “Huh? What did you say?”

Long coughed and said immediately, “Oh, I didn’t say anything!”

Shi rolled his eyes. “Let’s have lunch.”

At this moment, a servant went to report that Lady Luo had arrived.

Shi raised his eyebrows. “Lady Luo?”

Long said, “Why is she here again?”

“Again?” Shi looked at Long. “What’s going on?”

Long curled his lips and told Shi that the woman had gone to the imperial study earlier.

“I ordered Liu Xiangyang to ask her what the matter is. She could’ve spoken directly, but she said she wouldn’t say anything until she saw me.”

Shi looked at Long and said calmly, “Perhaps there’s an emergency.”

“No matter what happens to her, it has nothing to do with me!” Long said at once.

Shi sneered upon hearing this. “Really?”

“Of course, I mean it!” Long was absolutely sure and he almost swore to Shi.

In fact, Shi was just teasing Long and he believed in Long very much.

“Well, do you want to meet her?”

“What do you think, Qingzhou?” Long asked immediately.

“Let’s do as you said. If there’s anything, she can just say directly. If she refuses, then ignore her.”

Long nodded after hearing that. “Right, that’s good. Let’s just do it.”

Shi looked at him. “As long as you agree.”

Long chuckled. “Of course I agree. Qingzhou, how can I disagree with you?”

Shi curled his lips and it was just decided like this.

When Liu Xiangyang went outside and asked Lady Luo again, the woman became very upset.

“His Majesty… still refuses to see me?”

Liu Xiangyang said indifferently, “Lady Luo, His Majesty is busy with very important things, so he just wants to know what you want. Can’t you just tell me first?”

Lady Luo pursed her lips. Then, she said nothing and left hopelessly…

Long asked when Liu Xiangyang returned, “She’s gone?”

Liu Xiangyang reported immediately, “Yes, Your Majesty. Lady Luo refused to say anything and left…”

Long waved his hand when he heard the words. “Just let her leave. That’s fine.”

The two of them began to have lunch.

Long waited on Shi attentively, while Shi enjoyed it with peace of mind.

After lunch, Long yawned and said, “I want to take a nap later. How about you?”

Shi said, “I’m free.”

Long blinked and suddenly said, “Qingzhou, you’ve learned how to feel the pulse, right?”

Shi looked at him. “Yes. What’s the matter?”

Long stretched out his hand. “Of course I’ll test you on that, Qingzhou.”

Shi blinked. “What?”

Long held Shi’s hand and made him sit down. “Feel my pulse.”

Shi didn’t say much and directly began to feel Long’s pulse. After a while, Shi released Long’s arm.

“It’s alright. You’re fine.”

“Are you sure?” Long blinked. “I didn’t sleep well last night. I thought I was sick.”

Shi thought Long’s words were ridiculous. “You think too much.”

“Qingzhou, are you sure you’re right? I really think… there’s something wrong with me. Is it possible that you haven’t mastered it?”

Shi finally knew why Long asked him to do that. It turned out that Long doubted him and wanted to criticize him!

The corners of Shi’s mouth twitched. He stood up and said, “If you don’t believe me, go to see the imperial doctors.”

“What? Where are you going?” Long shouted from behind.

Shi turned his head. “Didn’t you say that I haven’t mastered it? Of course I’m going to learn more! I won’t come back for dinner today. You can eat alone.”

“Oh no,” Long suddenly screamed, “No, Qingzhou, I was wrong.”

Long wailed as he rushed over and pulled his empress back.

“How could you be wrong?” Shi looked at him with a sneer.

Long immediately said, “I was wrong. I was really wrong. Qingzhou, you’ve learned very well. Really. I’m the one who didn’t learn it well!”

Shi rolled his eyes. “What did you learn?”

Long said sadly, “Internal strength. What else do you think…”

“Well…” Shi responded, thinking that Long really wasn’t good at it…

Long said, “That’s so shameful. Well, let’s go to sleep. Qingzhou, come with me.”

Shi didn’t think Long used the right word. “Shameful…”

“Yes.” Long took it for granted. “I didn’t want to admit this. It’s no big deal that a man can’t do martial arts. Don’t you think so?”

Shi didn’t know what to say.

“But there are too many martial artists now, so it seems to be a serious matter. Look at me, I don’t have any talent. I’ve been studying for a long time, but I’m still like this…”

Shi coughed. “Uh… well… restrain your grief.”

Long looked at Shi sadly. “Qingzhou, how can you be like this?”

Shi smiled faintly. “You just made fun of me for not studying medicine well.”

“So I apologized to you!”

Shi lowered his head and tittered. “Well then, I forgive you.”

“It seems that you’re reluctant.”

Shi blinked. “What else do you want?”

“Alright, as long as you’re happy.” Long muttered… and pulled his empress along.

Every time Long fought with his empress, he would end in failure. What a sad thing!

But never mind! If a man always lost to his wife… it wasn’t shameful at all, was it?

Was it? Absolutely not!
