Chapter 8 : An undercover like you is no better than a salted fish
In the afternoon, Lin Ran contently laid on the lazy chair in the Huxin Pavilion, enjoying the blowing wind, enjoying the fruits, enjoying the lotus flowers and enjoying life.
Ji Wuxie diligently peeled the grape skin, feeding Lin Ran one after another.
Lin Ran pointed at the guzheng beside them : “Know how to play the qin?”
Ji Wuxie nodded : “Naturally can.”
Lin Ran : “Come play and let me listen.”
Ji Wuxie was not happy : “Furen is getting more and more arrogant.”
Lin Ran rolled his eyes at him : “Who ask you to keep scaring me in the beginning.”
Ji Wuxie sighed : “So you are riding1 on Husband’s head every day to brag?”
Lin Ran : “I just like to ‘ride’2, how about it?”
Ji Wuxie lightly glanced at him : “Good ride, how about changing another place to ride3?”
Lin Ran threw grape seeds at him : “Scram!”
Ji Wuxie smiled and wiped his hand with a handkerchief, and sat on the side of the qin : “What does Furen want to hear?”
Lin Ran thought for a while and felt that he is culture-illiterate, so he casually said : “Anything.”
Ji Wuxie was silent for a moment, then 10 slender fingers lowered down on the strings. The music was like flowing water, and sometimes it was soothing but sometimes it was agitating. The spring breeze swirled, the remaining sound spiralled, scattering a pool of flowers’ fragrance.
At the end of the song, Lin Ran stared at Ji Wuxie, and couldn’t come back to his sense for a moment. All he could think in his mind was my husband playing the qin is so goddamned handsome! Unfortunately, he still has 17 small concubines (in the backyard)!
Ji Wuxie waved his hand in front of Lin Ran with a funny smile : “Wake up, Furen.”
Lin Ran immediately stiffened his face, serious commented: “Well played.”
Ji Wuxie whispered :
“There is a beautiful person, and you will never forget it.
Not seeing you in a day, my thoughts ran like crazy.
The male phoenix soared in the sky, seeking the female phoenix all over four seas…
This song is called “Feng Qiu Huang/Phoenix4 seeking Phoenix5“, do Furen know?”
Lin Ran thickened his face : “Of course.”
Ji Wuxie said softly: “That is talking about us.”
Lin Ran : “I don’t dare, there are still 17 ‘phoenixes’ in the backyard.”
Ji Wuxie looked at Lin Ran. He only smiled and didn’t say anything.
Lin Ran was upset and couldn’t say anything, so he could only glare at Ji Wuxie. He wanted to hear him(JWX) say something, but he felt that he can’t feel happy anymore no matter what he said.
Just as he was feeling troubled over what to say, Ji Wuxie suddenly looked up towards the pavilion’s roof.
Lin Ran followed his gaze and saw a pair of feet hanging from the Huxin Pavilion’s roof; dangling here and there.
Ji Wuxie got up : “Husband just calculated, Father-in-law is going to show up.”
Lin Ran supported his forehead with a feeling of despair : “…”
Ji Wuxie seriously said : “Husband will leave first, you can reminisce together here.”
Lin Ran waved his hand : “…”
Just as Ji Wuxie walked out, Shixiong couldn’t wait and jump in from the top of the pavilion. The tip of his feet softly landed on the ground, and he lightly floated down. He felt like he is very clever and agile.
Lin Ran couldn’t help but wiped his face.
Shixiong was not happy : “Why did you looked at Shixiong with this expression?”
Lin Ran faintly said : “Fortunately, Ji Wuxie is not really bad, otherwise both of us would have long been refined into a big nutritious pill.”
Shixiong sneered : “How could it be? Shixiong acted so cautiously already.”
Lin Ran : “Oh.”
Shixiong slammed a large stack of books on the table : “Shixiong sorted this out overnight.”
Lin Ran : “What is this?”
Shixiong with an upright expression : “This is the cases that Ji Wuxie has instructed his men to commit in these years. Take a good look.”
Lin Ran opened the case and became silent for a moment, saying : “I don’t understand.”
Shixiong : “Where can’t you understand?”
Lin Ran : “…I don’t know how to read.”
Shixiong tsk-ed : “You did your best to protect him.”
Lin Ran with a worry/anxious face : ”…”
Shixiong took one file : “Alright alright, you can continue to pretend, I will read it for you.”
Then Lin Ran listened to Shixiong’s eloquent recital the whole afternoon, listening to Ji Wuxie’s numerable crimes.
Shixiong read the case from beginning to end, then ate a pear : “I was thirsty from the recital.”
Lin Ran scratched his head : “I still think… there are doubtful points.”
Shixiong : “Is there something wrong with you? Do you still remember why did Liushan Sect sent you here?“
Lin Ran resolutely and decisive replied : “To become a little concubine ah.”
Shixiong : “Farts! To be an undercover ah!”
Lin Ran : “Oh, yes.”
Shixiong with a face showing ‘You cannot be helped anymore ‘: “You just don’t believe that Ji Wuxie is a bad person.”
Lin Ran patiently persuaded : “ Having a bad name don’t necessarily means someone is bad. Lu Guyan is a notorious thief. Do you think he is bad?”
Shixiong covered his face : “He is so bad ah.”
Lin Ran :” …I mean it seriously.”
Shixiong filled with girly hearts : “Actually, Guyan has always robbed the rich and helped the poor, never killed any innocent people, and is good friends with the martial alliance Lord. As the saying goes, ‘birds of the same feather flock together’. To be friends with the martial alliance Lord, he naturally has a good heart.”
Lin Ran recalled back at the time when the martial alliance Lord had practiced until he had qi deviation, then his face swelled up like a pig. He was worried : “This is hard to say, perhaps the martial alliance Lord himself is not a good person.”
Shixiong stamped his feet : “You just said that because you liked Ji Wuxie!”
Lin Ran’s face became red : “No.”
Shixiong was mad : “Look for a chance to slip out tonight, I received a secret report from the informant that Ji Wuxie will make a move tonight. I will take you to catch him red-handed and see how you continue to protect him.”
Lin Ran was suspicious : “What informant? I stayed with Ji Wuxie day and night recently but I don’t know about tonight. How do this informant know?”
Shixiong despised : “That’s why, an undercover like you is no better than a salted fish.”
Lin Ran : ”Fine fine, only you are salty.”
Shixiong : “I am not salty.”
Lin Ran : “…”
Shixiong blushed : “I took my bath every day.”
Lin Ran : “…What are you thinking actually?”
Shixiong with an upright expression : “Thinking about tonight’s raid.”
Lin Ran softly said : “Lu Guyan.”
Shixiong immediately shyly shook Lin Ran, almost pushed him onto the ground like ‘dog eat mud’ pose : “Why did you keep mentioning him? Hateful~!”

Banana is feeling bitter ah, I thought I managed to get Disqus running in my site a week ago but in reality, I only got them working in posts but not pages _(;3/
That’s why nobody commented on how silly Shixiong was ah _(;3/
