Aromatic Flesh - Chapter 16.2
I’m back with a new chapter! Been really busy the past month with real-life issues so I haven’t got time to translate anything Q_Q
For the rest of the journey, other than the occasional stops for her to relieve her biological needs, Gu MingYue was stripped bare and used again and again as he took her in many different positions.
Such as the missionary position, where her legs were both rested on his shoulders as he thrust her to the carriage’s shaking tempo, or the doggy style position, where her face and her twin bunnies were pressed onto the mattress, as he took her from behind while teasing her butthole.
It was an extremely tiring journey, hence when they finally arrived at their destination, she let out a sigh of relief while wincing at her swollen parts as he helped her down the carriage.
The endless passion had finally come to a pause.
Gu MingYue moved her drained body towards one of the prepared tents and fell asleep instantly as soon as she laid down on the mattress, and by the time she finally came to, it was already the next morning, and the summer hunt was already starting.
All of the participants were grouped into ten small groups and assigned to different areas of the hunting grounds. The team with the most game would be the final winner and would be rewarded finely by the Emperor.
But still, though this was an event meant for men, some daughters from the generals’ family had requested to join the hunting event too, furthermore, the Emperor himself had always brought along some of his concubines for the trip, which was why Gu MingYue’s presence had not been obtrusive.
However, due to the fact that she was merely a handmaiden, Gu MingYue would not be able to join the noble daughters on the stage, hence Mu JinYu told her to stay within the tent, which she nodded and agreed to gladly.
After the first day of hunting came to an end, Mu JinYu arrived at their tent with a pheasant and a hare in his hands while two young servants behind him carried a wild deer. After informing them to place the deer outside the tent, he pushed open the curtains and walked in casually.
Gu MingYue was currently reading a book, but she immediately put down the book and greeted Mu JinYu tenderly as soon as she saw him, before begging him to bring her along tomorrow, as she wished to spectate the horse racing and archery competition.
Mu JinYu assumed that she was bored out of her mind from being in the tent the entire day, but after taking advantage of the beauty in front of him once more, he finally agreed to her request.
On the next day, just as Mu JinYu was finishing up on preparing himself for the horse racing, a slim man with honey-colored skin walked up to him with his own horse. The man’s palm-sized face was exquisite, with a high nose and sharp brows. His eyes were bright and his rose-colored lips were permanently curled upwards into a subtle grin. Though slightly feminine, his facial features easily gave out a sense of gorgeousness and wildness.
“May I know your name?” The man spoke with an unfamiliar accent, but his eyes gleamed with excitement as he spoke.
Mu JinYu’s brows furrowed deeply together at his gaze, as it had been too long since he had encountered a person who dared to observe him so directly. Furthermore, who in the city would not know about Mu JinYu?
Mu JinYu automatically assumed that this unfamiliar man was here to find fault with him, hence he immediately left with his own horse in tow, fully ignoring the man.
What’s more, he hated sissies the most.
“What a temper.” The man muttered under his breath as he watched Mu JinYu’s leaving frame, “Perhaps I’ll wait for another opportunity to speak to him…”
Meanwhile, Mu JinYu was walking towards the racing zone with his horse in tow, and as soon as he arrived at the zone, he could hear the women’s whispers.
“Look! It’s him, he’s here!”
“Oh, he’s so handsome~”
“What use is there in being handsome, he’s still a good for nothing deep within!”
Though the whispers were soft, they sounded as irritating as flies to him at this moment. These women are annoying! He frowned in annoyance.
But his actions only seemed to cause more whispers.
“Is he frowning? Did he hear?!”
“Oh, he’s so charming even when he’s frowning…”
“If only my future husband looked like this…”
No longer able to stand these whispers, Mu JinYu picked up his speed as he wished to move away from this zone as soon as possible, but a soot-covered servant approached him.
Though the servant’s skin was dark and covered in soot, he could still clearly see from her bright eyes that it was Gu MingYue!
His face darkened instantly to an even darker shade than her colored skin.
“Nonsense!” Approaching her before she reached his side, he growled deeply into her ears unhappily.
But Gu MingYue would not allow him to chase her away, as she responded quickly before he could say anything else, “Young Master, the Madam sabotaged your riding gear!”
She wore a worried expression, though Mu JinYu would not have doubted her words even so. He nodded silently before pointing towards an empty area near the woods.
Gu MingYue followed him quickly, and as soon as they confirmed that there was no one else around to eavesdrop, she instantly told him how the Madam had ordered the servants to place poisoned needles into his riding-whip, and as soon as he hit the horse with the whip, the poison would definitely cause the horse to go on a mad rampage.
Mu JinYu’s expressions darkened significantly, before reaching into his prepared bag for the riding-whip. Upon inspecting it, he realized that there were tiny needles hidden underneath the leather. In fact, this was a new riding whip that was specially made for this occasion… To think that it, too, had been sabotaged so quickly.
“How did you know about this?” He glanced at her searchingly.
I knew about it from the plot, of course! She thought in secret, but this was not an answer she could give. “This slave saw Mu Fu, the carriage driver, lingering near our tent this morning and looking as if he wanted to run. He looked extremely suspicious so this slave told a guard to take ahold of him, but before we could even ask, he had revealed everything as he was full of guilt.”
In fact, in the original plot, Mu Fu had managed to escape, and the sabotaged riding kit had fallen into Princess XiLiang’s hands. This was because, in order to strike up a conversation with him, she had dressed up as a man and chatted with him about the coming horse racing competition.
In the original plot, he had given her the whip as a gift, but quickly found out that it had been sabotaged, which was why he had raced ahead and saved the Princess from danger.
Before this, she had already fallen in love with him at first sight, but after this incident, she was utterly head over heels for him, to the point of worshipping him like a deity.
But there was no way Gu MingYue would allow this to happen this time, hence after taking down Mu Fu, she had changed into a servant’s wear and rushed over, just to prevent the Princess from having the chance to approach him.
To be honest, the running was simply exhausting…
Mu JinYu glanced warmly at the worried woman in front of him, who was still trying to catch her breath from the run.
“Who else knew about this?”
“No one else knows about it except for this slave. But that was because this slave had personally approached him when he confessed his sins. Mu Fu hoped that by allowing Young Master to grab hold of evidence of the Madam’s evil deeds, Young Master would spare his life.”
Mu JinYu had nodded in satisfaction at her reply, but her face quickly darkened into another shade as he realized something. He glared intently at the proud woman in front of him, suddenly upset that she had such close contact with another man.
Without thinking further, dumb and irrelevant words escaped from his lips, “Did anyone see your face?”
Gu MingYue blinked in confusion at his weird question. Was he not supposed to ask where was Mu Fu kept right now? But still, she quickly decided to answer his question because she could see his face darkening even further, “No, this slave was wearing drapery the entire time…”
