He was still worried that others would hear him, so the young man’s voice was very soft.
Others couldn’t hear it, but it was enough for Jiang Yue and Xue Yan to hear.
Jiang Yue looked at Xue Yan.
Since he wasn’t practicing martial arts today, Shao Zhongxi and Qi Yin didn’t stay in the village. They pretended to go back to town, but in fact, they went back to Quanping Inn.
It was obvious that Shao Zhongxi had received the news that Empress Dowager Yunzi would be arriving this afternoon at Quanping Inn, which was why he had asked this young man to come and report to the Crown Prince
Xue Yan felt more at ease in his heart as well, so he thought for a moment before replying to the young man, “Go back and tell him that I will find a way to stay in the shop in town tonight.”
There were too few rooms in the shops in the county. The men squeezed into one room and the women squeezed into another room. If he and Jiang Yue were to stay, they would definitely stay in the same room.
If they were to stay in the same room as someone else, it would be easy for others to find out if they secretly went out to do something.
It was not like the shop in town, which had many rooms and even had rooms for him and Jiang Yue.
Moreover, the indispensable evidence was that Laicai and Xiuhua were staying in Quanping Inn, which was in Pingan Town. Empress Dowager Yunzi would definitely not receive the evidence one-sidedly when she came. She would definitely send people to carefully verify the authenticity of the evidence and witnesses. She would definitely go to Pingan Town.
Moreover, living in town was closer to the county than living in the village.
If he needed to come to the county again, he and Jiang Yue wouldn’t take long to reach it since they would be in the county.
“Yes, sir!” The young man immediately accepted the order.
After the young man left, Jiang Yue said, “We’ll tell Sifu later that the Empress Dowager will arrive in the afternoon and ask him to help us tell the family to let us stay in the shop in town for a few days. He can say it just in case he’s temporarily in the county and can’t manage the shop in town. As for Shao
Zhongxi, tell him to not rush back to the village. Since he’s in town, we can go to his house to practice martial arts.”
“Sounds like a plan.” Xue Yan nodded, having no objections.
He said that she would arrive in the afternoon, but he did not know exactly when she would arrive. Regardless, he would definitely be able to see Empress Dowager Yunzi by tomorrow at the latest.
Then, Jiang Yue and Xue Yan went back and strolled on the streets.
When they returned to their family’s rice noodle shop, they stuffed the candy into Xue Shi’s hands.
“Ya ya!” Xue Shi was very happy. He waved his two little arms and kept giggling.
“Look at how much Xue Yan and Jiang Yue dote on you!” Yu Hongyan smiled as she spoke to her son, who was extremely excited in her arms.
Xue Shi didn’t understand what she was saving. He happily grabbed a sugar
figurine with each hand and waved his arms.
It was only when they saw that Sifu was alone that Jiang Yue and Xue Yan walked to his side. In a low voice, they told Sifu about Empress Dowager Yunzi arriving in Xinyuan County in the afternoon. They also told him how they wanted Sifu to help them stay here instead of going back. Sifu did not say anything else and immediately agreed.
Then, Sifu told his family about the plan. The family had no objections and felt that it would not delay the progress of the shop.
They ate rice noodles for lunch in the shop. When it was past noon, Xue Dafu and the others left the county with Jiang Yue and Xue Yan. However, when they passed by their rice noodle shop in town, they naturally dropped Jiang Yue and Xue Yan off as they had agreed and let them stay in the shop in town for a few days..
