Chapter 169 - Long\'An: Han Xiang and Xiao Fang (2)
Yao Ling\'s eyes lit up when she heard Xiao Fang\'s answer. She really wanted to run around and laugh happily. Did they finally get a decent clue? She had a gut feeling that this woman had a connection with the princess, but who knew that they were that close... She believed that Yao Ying and Lin Jian also heard what Xiao Fang said and basked in happiness too.
Yao Ling decided to play pull and push trick, so Xiao Fang wouldn\'t feel suspicious about her intention. "Are the assassins chasing after you because of this matter with Han Xiang?"
Xiao Fang shook her head. "No... This is purely my family business... it doesn\'t involve Han Xiang."
"And you are still persistent in trying to find Han Xiang despite of having to face those assassins too?" Yao Ling asked in disbelief.
Xiao Fang nodded. "Yes..."
"But why? Isn\'t she going to get a luxurious marriage with the Qin Emperor? He doesn\'t have many women in his harem, so she probably will have a happy marriage..." Then, Yao Ling added, "She also can free herself from the Han Emperor\'s clutch..."
"Ha-ha-ha..." Xiao Fang laughed bitterly. "I\'ve heard that fake news as well. The Qin Emperor is a monster and I\'m not going to let my best friend to get married to such a lunatic!" Xiao Fang said full of determination.
Yao Ling looked at Lin Jian and Yao Ying who went closer to her, after listening to Xiao Fang\'s story. They were interested in the news too. Lin Jian asked, "How do you plan to save her?"
Yao Ying, Yao Ling, and Lin Jian were feeling a bit suspicious. Was this really a coincidence? Why was it so easy for them to find Han Xiang\'s best friend? What\'s the odd that this kind of coincidence could happen? Were they being too lucky? Even if they were suspicious, they needed to take this chance.
It was easy to find out the princess when she was in the big entourage because they knew that the Han Kingdom wouldn\'t dare to play a trick by exchanging the bride. Beside that... what was that for? The Emperor didn\'t care for this daughter at all so he was probably happy that this daughter was gone.
They just needed to get closer to Han Xiang and in order to do that, it would take a lot of time and double the effort. However, with Xiao Fang\'s presence, they would reduce the time and effort that they needed to waste.
Xiao Fang looked at Lin Jian and slightly blushed, before finally answering, "I\'m not sure yet. First thing first... I need to find her and then drag her away from the wedding entourage. I will ask her to run away with me!"
Yao Ling snickered when Xiao Fang was blushing. This woman was simply too simple and innocent. Every thought that she had could be read easily, it was as clear as day. How did she plan to save the princess this way?
Lin Jian asked in disbelief, "Find her and drag her away?! Have you think about what will happen if they discover that the bride has run away?" He didn\'t know whether Xiao Fang was too innocent or too stupid. She dared to chase her friend with this kind of simple and foolish plan?!
Lin Jian added a question once again, "There\'s a possibility that the two kingdoms will go to war. Have you think about that too?"
"Er... as long as we run away safely... it should be no problem? Let the Han Emperor deal with it?" Xiao Fang answered the question with other questions.
What she said made the three people\'s expression became slightly darkened. They started to believe that Xiao Fang was indeed... a special case. Was she really that simple-minded?!
Yao Ling sighed and tried to talk some sense, "If you run away, then they will hunt you even to the end of the world... You won\'t have an easy life too."
Han Yi who heard Yao Ling\'s question mumbled, "I already told Young Miss a few times already... and she didn\'t listen to me..."
Yao Ling was able to hear despite Han Yi\'s low voice, she really didn\'t know whether to laugh or cry. This foolish girl, Xiao Fang was also stubborn.
"But... I can\'t just let her be..." Xiao Fang said. "She went out of the wolf den and send herself into a tiger den. What\'s the difference?"
"Yes... but in order to save her from this marriage, you need a sound plan," Yao Ying said while rolling his eyes. He felt lucky that he ended up with Yao Ling who was smart. He looked at Lin Jian pitifully, it seemed like his life would be so eventful in the future. He had a gut feeling that these two would end up with each other and their personalities complemented each other --- both were fools but loyal to the core.
"I tried so hard to think of a plan, but it\'s very hard. I even begged my father to hire people from the Jiang Hu with me," Xiao Fang admitted.
"Why don\'t you ask your father\'s help to save Han Xiang?" Yao Ling asked curiously.
"Er... Father would kill me if he knew about my plan. I just asked for more bodyguard and ran away from home!" Xiao Fang explained while grinning sheepishly.
\'Is she indeed seriously wanted to drag Han Xiang away just like this?! Without a plan?!\' The three people could only shake their head inwardly. They were rendered speechless by Xiao Fang\'s recklessness.
It seemed like Xiao Fang could become their double-edged sword. In a way, she could save them some times to meet Han Xiang, but with her... foolishness, there was a possibility that she would ruin their plan.
The three of them looked at each other helplessly.
"Xiao Fang, are you really that close with her? You are even willing to give up your life and become a fugitive along with her?" Yao Ling asked seriously.
"Yes... we are good sisters!" Xiao Fang answered decisively while nodding her head excitedly for a few times.
Yao Ling thought to herself, \'It is indeed rare to find such a kind, loyal, innocent, and foolish person. In a way, she also admires Xiao Fang\'s kindness toward her friend.\'
"Do you need our help?" Yao Ling decided to take her along with them. Having one more loyal friend was also good.
Xiao Fang looked at Yao Ling and asked with hopeful eyes, "Are you really willing to help me?"
Yao Ling sighed and nodded. "We actually don\'t have anything to do. I\'m just going out on our honeymoon trip, so we just go around sightseeing. We meet here by chance so it seems like what Lin Jian said is true... we have a fate," Yao Ling said. She used the same excuse that they had been using so far --- honeymoon trip.
"Our honeymoon?" Xiao Fang asked while looking the three of them in surprise.
Yao Ling nodded.
"All of you?" Xiao Fang asked once again.
Yao Ling nodded once again.
"The three of you?"
Yao Ling, "..." She felt like opening her brain and saw what\'s inside it. What did she mean by the three of us?! Did she look like a pervert?
Yao Ling flicked Xiao Fang\'s forehead and said, "What are you thinking about? My husband is Yao Ying. Lin Jian is going for an adventure, but he ends up following us until he gets bored. Do you think I have two husbands?"
"Oh..." Xiao Fang looked down shyly and she took a peek at Lin Jian who was currently talking to Yao Ying in a low voice --- probably about their new arrangement.
Even blind people could see the affectionate gaze from Xiao Fang\'s eyes, Yao Ling could only helplessly smile at Xiao Fang. Her question was probably just to probe whether Lin Jian was single or not. She\'s really funny!
Yao Ling started to feel tired and said, "Come on! Let\'s go to sleep for now! We can think of a plan when we arrive at Lin Zhou tomorrow. We need to see the wedding entourage\'s security and also Han Xiang\'s decision before we make a sound plan."
"You don\'t have to ask... Han Xiang will definitely agree with me," Xiao Fang said resolutely.
