Picked Up A Husband For Farming - Chapter 361
361 If You Want to Fight, Fight!
Lin Shu’s face turned pale with anger. “You’re simply fooling around! That’s someone who can snatch your throne at any time. How dare you hand over something that belongs to the emperor to him? Get it back and I’ll manage it for you!”
Ao Jie was unmoved. “You’ve always told me that Qiao Yanhui will snatch the throne, but when did he ever snatch it? What did he do?”
Lin Shu mocked, “You’re too naive. Do you really think he’s sincerely doing it for your sake? He wants you to be grateful to him and personally give him the throne, so he can become the emperor smoothly. Otherwise, he won’t be able to hold the position rightfully!”
Ao Jie didn’t say anything else. In the end, he said calmly, “I’m tired, so I want to rest. Mother, please go back. As for that team, it already belongs to him, so don’t even think about it.”
Lin Shu glared at Ao Jie fiercely before leaving. Since her puppet was so disobedient, she had to teach him a lesson.
After Lin Shu left, Ao Jie opened his eyes again. This time, it was his turn to protect Qiao Yanhui. He wouldn’t let anyone hurt Qiao Yanhui, even if that person was himself!
Qiao Yanhui had been busy training the secret guard team these past few days, and the training methods were very inhumane. Coupled with some of Xu Qing’s suggestions regarding training methods, the secret guard team was in such torment that they cried for their parents.
Xu Qing was also busy treating the child and mother Gu worm in Ao Jie’s body, as well as preparing the various medicines and surgical supplies Qiao Yanhui needed. These things would take a lot of time and effort to prepare.
Everyone was very busy recently, but someone just had to interfere.
It was Zhuo Wuyou, who had disappeared for a long time.
Xu Qing recalled that when she left the Ancient Kingdom with Qiao Yanhui and the others, she didn’t say goodbye to Zhuo Wuyou, so she felt a little apologetic. After all, when friends part ways, they should at least bid farewell. However, they didn’t bid farewell and lost track of each other over time.
Xu Qing sighed softly because she really didn’t know how to help Qiao Yanhui with what he was facing now.
Because the person who started this battle was Zhuo Wuyou.
Zhuo Wuyou returned to his country not long after Xu Qing and Qiao Yanhui left the Ancient Kingdom. After he returned, he acted swiftly and decisively. He took over the Nujiang Kingdom and became the new emperor of the Nujiang Kingdom. Logically speaking, the Nujiang Kingdom had just experienced an internal strife and should be recovering, so they didn’t expect Zhuo Wuyou to send troops to the Ancient Kingdom at this time.
“We should have killed him back then,” Qiao Yanhui said coldly. When he thought about how Zhuo Wuyou had started this war because of Xu Qing, he was furious. If the public found out about this, all the criticism would be directed at Xu Qing. No one would blame Zhuo Wuyou for starting a war over a beautiful woman. They might even say that he was devoted. The public would only blame all of this on the woman and think that Xu Qing caused trouble for the country… What did Zhuo Wuyou take Xu Qing for? How dare he?
When they left the Ancient Kingdom, Qiao Yanhui knew that Zhuo Wuyou was looking for Xu Qing. However, he didn’t give Zhuo Wuyou a chance. As a result, Zhuo Wuyou couldn’t find Xu Qing, so he decided to return to the country to seize the throne.
Now, there was only one thought in Zhuo Wuyou’s mind, and that was to become stronger and snatch Xu Qing back. He wouldn’t be able to get anything in return if he only made sacrifices silently. He had already lost his patience. He could only become stronger and tie Xu Qing to his side so that he could obtain her.
Therefore, how could Zhuo Wuyou give up on this opportunity?
Although the Nujiang Kingdom wasn’t that strong anymore after experiencing a civil war, if many factions joined forces, it was uncertain who would win in the end!
Wasn’t Qiao Yanhui arrogant? Did he think that no one in this world could subdue him? Then he would let him lose everything and see how arrogant he could remain at that time or if he would even be worthy of having Xu Qing?
“What is Zhuo Wuyou thinking? Could it be that he suffered grievances as a hostage in the Ancient Kingdom and took the opportunity to take revenge?” Xu Qing was a little puzzled. She thought that Zhuo Wuyou had moved on from her, and the two of them had returned to being friends. After all, a long time had passed. Of course, even if he still liked her, it was impossible for Zhuo Wuyou to destroy the country just because of that and in complete disregard of their relationship, right?
Qiao Yanhui only smiled and said dotingly, “Perhaps it’s… a matter of dignity.” He definitely couldn’t tell Xu Qing the details. He didn’t want her to worry.
Since Zhuo Wuyou wanted to fight..
They would fight!
Upon seeing the anger in Qiao Yanhui’s eyes, Xu Qing was a little frightened. Why did she feel that something was off? But no matter which side was injured, it wouldn’t be something she wanted to see. On one side, there was the man she loved the most, and on the other side, there was her friend, who had helped her countless times.
