Chapter 350 - The Han Kingdom\'s Palace
When they arrived at the palace\'s gate, Xiao Fang didn\'t have any reactions because she used to go there to visit Han Xiang from time to time, although she didn\'t get in through the side door back then. She only sighed because of the different feelings that she had when entering the palace --- she wasn\'t in a cheerful mood like how she used to be.
On the other hand, Yao Ling was amazed by what she saw at a first glance. She had heard that the Han Kingdom wasn\'t as rich as the Shu Kingdom and she expected a small and neat palace which looked a bit simple and elegant. However, what she had seen was contrary to her expectation!
The palace was quite glamorous. However, she couldn\'t compare it to the Shu Kingdom\'s palace because she had never gone to the capital and taken a look at it. If the Han Kingdom\'s place was as beautiful as this, she wondered what the Shu Kingdom\'s palace looked like ah~!
The palace stood up beautifully in the middle of the desert and in one glance, they would be able to see how precious the materials that were used to build it. Some of the coatings were even made of gold. The wall and gate color was a combination of white, off-white, and gold. It would be hard for people to barge in because it was built quite tall and seemed so sturdy.
Even though the decoration was plain because they were located in the middle of the desert, it still exuded a certain elegant charm. It seemed like the Han Emperor wanted to show his wealth through the material only.
They had to wait patiently for their turn because the queue was long. There were a lot of people who were brought by various officials which made the palace guards become more vigilance. If there were assassins mixed up in them, they would be the first one to be blamed for not checking the people thoroughly. The consequences would be death ah~! Thus, they took their jobs seriously.
Since morning, they had found a few suspicious people that had been taken away to the prison and it made them turn vigilance even more.
Xiao Fang sighed when she knew that they had to stand up for quite some times before it was their turn to be checked. She decided to chat randomly with Yao Ling while paying attention to the people in front of her. Suddenly, she saw that someone was passing something to another person. However, she couldn\'t see clearly what it was.
She could only see that something was shining --- like a weapon?
Xiao Fang nudged Yao Ling and pointed at those two people while giving Yao Ling a questioning look, asking the latter what those two people brought secretly. Yao Ling was in a better position and she could see that it was indeed a sharp weapon. However, the weapon was a bit weird and she didn\'t understand what it was. She nodded her head at Xiao Fang, telling her that she had seen it.
They didn\'t talk more about it because it would attract other people\'s attention. Xiao Fang pouted but she soon forgot about the matter because she was busy chatting with Lin Jian in a low voice.
Yao Ling wanted to see whether those two people would be able to pass the inspection smoothly. If yes, they could use them for something. If not, then Yao Ling could just forget about those two. About the weapon, Yao Ling decided that she would describe it and ask Yao Ying whether he knew what it was or not. Hopefully, it was a real weapon.
Those two people were a few rows in front of them. When they were being checked, Yao Ling felt nervous as well because she hoped that both of them would pass the inspection. Otherwise, how could they use them? Xiao Fang didn\'t know Yao Ling\'s thought, she merely showed her about those two people because she was curious.
Yao Ling sighed in relief when those two people passed. She tugged at Yao Ying\'s sleeve and whispered softly, "Pay attention to those two people! Remember their appearance, okay?" In this regard, Yao Ying was better than her. If the two men were mixed with so many people, it would be hard for her to spot them again later.
Yao Ying didn\'t know the reason but he agreed readily. Yao Ling must have her own consideration. After that, they didn\'t talk to each other because they were getting nearer to the front. Xiao Fang still wore the scar disguise however she covered up her face with a veil --- they would give a reason that Xiao Fang was only the creator of the performance, so she wouldn\'t attract attention with the hideous scar.
Fortunately, they passed easily because they represented the Prime Minister and with the latter\'s high rank, the palace guards didn\'t dare to make it difficult for them. They asked Xiao Fang to open her veil and the latter reluctantly did so because the palace guards didn\'t believe their words easily. In the end, the guards felt disgusted because of her ugly scar and quickly let them in.
"Go... go... go... don\'t block the road with your ugliness!" One of them said arrogantly. After all, they were only performers --- the lowest of lowest ah~!
Xiao Fang bowed a few times, thanking the palace guards meekly. She covered up her intention to kick the palace guards pretty well. It wasn\'t worth it! Lin Jian felt like punching those palace guards but he knew that he shouldn\'t be rush or their plain would fail before it even started.
A palace girl guided them to their designated place --- each trope had its own place so the place people would be able to distinguish those many people easily, showing how big the palace was. Their place had the Prime Minister\'s banner. Yao Ling had no time to pay attention to the palace\'s decoration or the environment because Yao Ying suddenly asked her about the two men that she had wanted him to pay attention to previously at the inspection gate.
"Why do you care so much about those two people?" Yao Ying asked curiously. He didn\'t see anything special from them and he also didn\'t see how those two were able to smuggle a sharp weapon into the palace.
Yao Ling whispered to him her idea and the latter was quite surprised --- because it was actually a good one. It would be able to distract the Han Emperor\'s attention from them. Considering how the Han Emperor wanted to get rid of Feng Yong Rui, he must have been wary of them too. Judging from how paranoid the Han Emperor was, he must have been vigilance towards them --- feeling afraid that something would go wrong.
"What kind of weapon was it?" Yao Ying asked curiously.
Yao Ling shook her head. "I don\'t know the name. Let me describe it to you, so maybe you can tell me the sharp weapon\'s name."
Yao Ying nodded his head, "Sure... Tell me!"
Yao Ling tried to remember the weapon\'s characteristic. It was a bit hard because she only was it in a flash, hopefully, she was able to explain it clearly.
Yao Ling started to describe the sharp weapon calmly in a low voice, feeling afraid that someone else would listen to their conversation. "The weapon looked so soft and flexible at first, but once it was being touched by the other person --- it suddenly became hard and sharp... like it came alive..."
Yao Ling was confused about how to explain it and somehow, she felt that something was wrong with her explanation ah~!
Yao Ying was stunned when he heard her explanation and he almost laughed out loud because of it! He tried so hard to appear calm, but his face became redder when he choked back on his own laughter. In the end, he pretended to be coughing --- for the sake of calming himself down.
His thought drifted to something naughty ah~!
