Chapter 30 – Continue to find the oiran to chat about life

Li Yuan, when the rooster crowed at dawn, Li Ziye disappeared again.

In the southeast of the capital city, the quietest place in the entire city, it seemed to be isolated from the hustle and bustle. There were no luxurious mansions of the nobles, nor magnificent places for fireworks.

There were only the daily lives of the common people.

And in one of these inconspicuous places, in an equally inconspicuous small courtyard, a woman watered the flowers and plants early in the morning, and then went out for morning exercises.

Yu Qingxuan had a weak body when she was young, and the doctor asked her to exercise more. So, over the years, the habit of morning exercises has been maintained.

The noble sons and daughters of the capital city never expected that their fairy lived in such an inconspicuous place.

But Li Ziye knew.

Because Li Qingzhi told him.

“Miss Yu, what a coincidence!”

By the Xiangshui River, Yu Qingxuan, dressed in green, was about to start her morning exercises when she heard that annoying voice behind her.

Yu Qingxuan turned around and saw Li Ziye, who was wearing sportswear, running towards her under the sunlight. His face was bright and his smile was beautiful, making him look so delicate and attractive.

Unfortunately, Li Ziye’s impression in Yu Qingxuan’s heart had become extremely bad.

So, when she saw Li Ziye, Yu Qingxuan didn’t say a word and turned to leave.

“Miss Yu, Fairy Yu, don’t go, let’s talk about life… no, let’s talk about music, let’s talk about poetry!”

Li Ziye ran after her, constantly hovering around Yu Qingxuan, with a flattering smile on his face.

“Young Master Li, I have something to do, let’s talk another day.”

Yu Qingxuan said and quickly walked away, trying to get rid of the annoying fly in front of her.

Li Ziye still didn’t know that he had been treated like a fly by someone, and he continued to pursue her without caring, saying, “Miss Yu, I came to apologize to you. It’s all Bai Wangyu’s fault. He insisted on taking me to the Flower Garden and forcing me to drink. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have been drunk and rude. Miss Yu, please forgive me.”


In Li Yuan, in the west wing, Bai Wangyu, who had just walked out of the door, sneezed twice in a row.

Caught a cold?

Bai Wangyu looked puzzled. Since he started practicing martial arts, he hadn’t caught a cold for many years.

What happened today?

In the southwest of the capital city, by the Xiangshui River, Yu Qingxuan looked at the shameless young man in front of her and felt more and more disgusted.

Who didn’t know what kind of person the senior brother of the Confucian School was? This person actually dared to splash dirty water on others without any shame.

“Young Master Li!”

Yu Qingxuan stopped and said seriously, “I have no relationship with Young Master Li. Whether you forgive me or not is meaningless. Why do you insist on bothering me?”

“We do have a relationship, why would we not have a relationship?”

Li Ziye hurriedly said, “Aren’t you looking for the owner of ‘Ambush from Ten Sides’? Yes, I wrote it!”

Yu Qingxuan frowned and asked, “What are the Twelve Tones? What are the Seven Tones?”

Li Ziye was stunned and asked, “What do you mean?”

Yu Qingxuan became even more impatient and said, “Young Master Li doesn’t even know the common knowledge of music, how could he write such a stunning music score as ‘Ambush from Ten Sides’?”

Li Ziye looked bitter. He didn’t study ancient music theory. How could he know these things?

He just had a good memory and could remember things he had seen once.

He just casually flipped through the music score of “Ambush from Ten Sides”. As for the knowledge of music theory, who would deliberately study it?

He didn’t know that there would be an exam!

This question was obviously beyond the scope.

“Young Master Li, if you can’t answer, please stop bothering me.”

Yu Qingxuan said and walked away again.

Li Ziye rubbed his hair hard, with a bitter smile on his face, but he didn’t give up and continued to follow her.

It seemed difficult to restore his impression in Yu Qingxuan’s heart!

He had gone too far last night. He didn’t expect to have to ask for something from this little courtesan.

In front, Yu Qingxuan walked briskly for a long time and found that Li Ziye was still following her. Her anger became harder to suppress.

Why was this person so persistent!

After fifteen minutes, when she was about to return to her place, Yu Qingxuan had to stop and turn around to look at the young man behind her. She said in a deep voice, “Young Master Li, what exactly do you want to do?”

“I don’t want to do anything, I just want to be friends with Miss Yu.”

Li Ziye grinned. Of course, he couldn’t mention his intention to go to the Yin family now.

“Young Master Li is noble, while Qingxuan is just a common woman. It’s impossible for me to climb up to your level. Young Master, please go back.”

Yu Qingxuan said in a serious tone.

“People are equal in the world. There is no distinction between high and low. Although Miss Yu is in the mortal world, she can stand alone and remain pure, which is much nobler than those who talk about benevolence and righteousness but do all kinds of evil things.”

Li Ziye flattered her, almost using up all the words he knew, just to establish a good relationship with Yu Qingxuan.Sure enough, Yu Qingxuan’s expression showed surprise when she heard the former’s unique insight into social status.

Equality among people?

It was the first time she had heard someone say such words.

Li Ziye saw the expression on the woman’s face and knew that what he said had worked. He quickly searched for words in his mind and said, “Miss Yu, I come from a merchant family, and my status is not considered noble either. However, I have never thought of myself as inferior. As the saying goes, ‘The king is like a boat, and the people are like water. Water can carry a boat, but it can also overturn it.’ Therefore, in life, there is no distinction between high and low. High and low are all in people’s hearts.”


Li Ziye finished speaking and felt satisfied.

It had been a long time since he had spoken so boldly!

“Do you really think so, Young Master Li?”

Yu Qingxuan said softly, her heart in turmoil as she looked at the young man in front of her. At this moment, she seemed to no longer understand this ever-changing young man.

High and low are all in people’s hearts! This sentence truly touched her heart.

She knew that although countless noble and wealthy young men had pursued her over the years, they only cared about her appearance and her body. They still looked down upon her identity as a woman of the world.

This was the distinction between high and low in the world, deeply ingrained and impossible to change.

“Of course.”

Li Ziye nodded vigorously and said, “Miss Yu, as we spend more time together, you will come to know that I am a person of consistent words and actions, with a good character. I am careful not to harm even the lowliest of ants and cherish the moth that flies into the lampshade. Last night, I had a bit too much to drink, which led to my disrespectful words to you, Miss.”

Amitabha Buddha, brothers of the bandits from the underworld, I apologize for endangering your lives, even though you are neither ants nor moths.

“Let’s forget about what happened last night.”

Yu Qingxuan, kind-hearted, didn’t want to dwell on it any longer and said softly.


Li Ziye’s face lit up with joy as he reached out and grabbed the woman’s hand in front of him. Excitedly, he said, “Thank you, Miss Yu, thank you!”

Yu Qingxuan’s expression changed, and just as she was about to break free, a voice of anger sounded from nearby.

“Young Master Deng! Let go of Fairy Qingxuan!”

Before the words had even finished, a young man who looked about fifteen or sixteen years old rushed over with an angry expression. With thick eyebrows and big eyes, he ran up to the two of them in three or four steps and pushed Li Ziye away, angrily saying, “Who do you think you are, daring to bully Fairy Qingxuan? Be careful, I’ll have my father kill you!”

“May I ask who your father is?”

Li Ziye was taken aback and asked.

“My father is the Eastern King, one of the Ten Martial Kings!”

The young man looked up and said.

“The Eastern King?”

Li Ziye’s expression froze. Another prince of a Martial King? When did the Eastern King of Great Shang become so worthless that people would mention them wherever he went?

Wasn’t this bullying?

“Are you scared? If you’re scared, leave quickly, or I’ll make you regret it!”

The Eastern King’s son, Wu Duoduo, stood with his hands on his hips, looking arrogant and telling Li Ziye to leave.

“Son, Li Ziye didn’t bully me. It was just a misunderstanding earlier.”

On the side, Yu Qingxuan saw the misunderstanding intensify and couldn’t bear it. She explained.

“Fear not, Fairy Qingxuan. With me here, he won’t dare to bully you again!”

Wu Duoduo turned his head and showed the most handsome smile he thought he had, saying.

He was certain that Fairy Qingxuan wouldn’t dare to offend this Young Master Deng, which was why she said that.

Finally, the time for him to be a hero had come!

“Young brat, you have courage!”

Li Ziye raised his thumb and praised him.

To dare to be a hero in front of him, it seemed that his role as a villain hadn’t been successful enough.

Thinking of this, Li Ziye grinned and took a step forward.

“What are you going to do?”

Wu Duoduo was startled and instinctively took two steps back, saying.

“What am I going to do?”

Li Ziye’s face showed a sinister smile, and he reached out and lifted the young man in front of him. With a menacing look in his eyes, he said, “So you’re the Eastern King’s son, huh? Dare to meddle in front of me, I’m tired of living. Be careful, I’ll throw you into the river!”

“You… let go of me!”

Wu Duoduo trembled at the terrifying appearance of the person in front of him, struggling continuously, and said in fear, “Otherwise, my father won’t let you off.”

“But you also need to have the chance to meet your father.”

Li Ziye looked around and grinned, saying, “No one around, it’s a really good place!”

After speaking, Li Ziye carried the young man and headed towards the river.

“Help! Help me! I don’t want to go down!”

Wu Duoduo’s body trembled, and a strong sense of fear rose in his heart. He shouted desperately.

“Scream all you want, even if you scream your throat hoarse, no one will come to save you!”

Li Ziye said arrogantly.

On the side, Yu Qingxuan realized that Li Ziye was just scaring the Eastern King’s son and couldn’t help but show a helpless expression.

This Third Young Master of the Li Family’s temperament was really… all over the place.

By the Xiangshui River, Li Ziye carried Wu Duoduo and approached with a sinister smile on his face. He said in a chilling tone, “Are you going down by yourself, or should I throw you down?”

“Help… help me, I… I don’t want to go down!”Wu Duoduo was so scared that he was on the verge of tears, trembling as he spoke.

“Not going down?”

Li Ziye gave a chilling smile, saying, “Are you still playing the hero to save the beauty?”

“No… I’m not.”

Wu Duoduo trembled as he spoke.

“Really not going to save her?”

Li Ziye asked again.

“I’m not.”

Wu Duoduo said with a hint of a sob in his voice.

“No backbone, not even a bit of persistence.”

Li Ziye showed a look of disinterest, casually tossed him aside, and threw him to the riverbank.

With a “thud”, Wu Duoduo landed on his butt, looking at the unfathomable river in front of him, he was so scared that he almost wet his pants.

“Miss Yu, let’s go.”

Li Ziye turned around and walked forward, looking at the woman in front of him, he revealed a grin showing eight teeth, and said, “I have a song ‘Guangling San’ that I want to dedicate to you, it’s definitely not inferior to the pipa score in your hands.”

Upon hearing this, Yu Qingxuan’s eyes flashed with surprise, and she nodded, saying, “Then I look forward to your visit, Young Master Li.”


Li Ziye responded, looking back at Wu Duoduo on the shore, he grinned again.

This brat, daring to compete with him!

Feeling the threat in Li Ziye’s gaze, Wu Duoduo was so scared that he immediately retracted his gaze.
