1333 Do You Think You Can Get Out Of This Alive

Lin Qingyuan got anxious when Lu Liangwei rejected her. “It’ll be great fun and it’s a rare opportunity. You’ll regret it if you don’t go.”

“It’s an opportunity that I’m fine with giving up.” Lu Liangwei was unmoved. Besides, it was not like she had never been inside a brothel before. She had previously holed herself up inside one for two days in order to hide from Long Chi.

Now that she was being asked to leave her kids to visit a brothel, Lu Liangwei was very unwilling.

Lin Qingyuan immediately felt disappointed by her reaction. She gave Lu Liangwei an upset look. “You really aren’t coming?”

Lu Liangwei was about to answer when a thought crossed her mind. She asked instead, “Are they choosing the leading courtesan tonight?”

“That’s right. Will you come?” When Lin Qingyuan heard this, she thought Lu Liangwei had changed her mind. She immediately perked up and pressed Lu Liangwei about whether she would go.

“Since you are looking forward to it so much, very well then, I’ll take the risk to accompany you. But I can’t leave the Palace right now. I’ll meet you when I find the chance to get out of the Palace tonight,” Lu Liangwei said with a wink.

Lin Qingyuan did not suspect a thing. “Alright. I’ll wait for you at the alleyway next to Peony Pavilion. See you.”

When Lu Liangwei saw that she had fallen into the trap, the corner of her lips twitched. She humored her with a reply, “Yes, see you then.”

Lin Qingyuan got slightly worried. “You have to remember to be there. Don’t break your promise.”

“Don’t worry. I won’t let you go there alone.” Lu Liangwei promised.

Lin Qingyuan finally left the Palace in high spirits to make preparations.

After Lin Qingyuan left, Lu Liangwei gave some thought to the matter and instructed someone to summon Long Xuan.

That night.

Lin Qingyuan waited for Lu Liangwei at the promised location.

She had taken the effort to change into male clothes so she could get into Peony Pavilion. She made sure to dress in a way to make her look more like a man.

Lin Qingyuan was abnormally excited at the thought of being able to visit Peony Pavilion and have some fun. She had arrived early to wait for Lu Liangwei.

However, despite waiting for a long time, Lu Liangwei was nowhere to be seen.

When she recalled how Lu Liangwei had been deep inside the Palace and that sneaking out of there was no easy feat, Lin Qingyuan decided to wait patiently.

She waited a long while before she spotted a slender figure slowly moving toward her from the opposite side.

As there was light shining behind the figure, Lin Qingyuan could not see the person’s face clearly.

She had initially thought that it was some stranger passing by. She gave the person a glance and turned away to lean against the wall. She continued the wait for Lu Liangwei.

Right then, the figure suddenly stopped directly in front of her.

The person was tall and their large shadow cast over her, indirectly giving off a sense of pressure on her.

Lin Qingyuan’s gaze shifted to the man’s robe and she was alarmed.

Could she be unlucky enough to have bumped into a ruffian?

She immediately felt wary when she realized there was no one around her.

Lin Qingyuan instinctively took a step back. She planned to turn and bolt if something felt wrong.

Peony Pavilion was not far away and they were choosing the leading courtesan tonight. There would be a lot of people there and she doubted this person would be brazen enough to chase after her.

However, before she could take any action, the stranger suddenly used something to knock her on the head. “What are you planning at, hiding around like this?”

Lin Qingyuan was taken aback when she heard the voice. When she lifted her head to see it was Long Xuan, she was immensely relieved. She hissed, “I should be the one asking you that question. Are you planning to scare me to death with your sneaking around?”

Long Xuan raised an eyebrow. “Aren’t you the one sneaking around?”

“When have I been sneaking around?” Lin Qingyuan patted herself on the chest. Her anxiety had finally calmed down. “By the way, what are you doing here?”

“Her Highness couldn’t leave the Palace because she is busy. She instructed me to protect you, since it isn’t safe for a woman like you to be here alone,” Long Xuan said helplessly.

Lin Qingyuan frowned. “Do you mean to say that Her Highness won’t be coming?”

Long Xuan’s face suddenly turned grim. “Lin Qingyuan, how dare you ask Her Highness to come to such a place? If my Royal Uncle finds out about this, do you think you can get out of this alive?”
