When Shi Ran received Su Mu’s handwritten letter that absolutely no one could imitate, and Sun Hongyu and Sun Hongyun who had been escorted over by Shi Nuo, his face could only show how speechless he was.
This fellow was too bold!

Shi Ran’s advisor said with an incredulous look: “Is this Qing Kingdom Crown Prince an idiot? From a pellet sized country yet he dares to kidnap the Crown Prince of Wu?”
At any rate, it had at least taken half of the income of the Shi Kingdom. The Shi Kingdom was very clear about how strong the Wu Kingdom, their old opponent who had been fighting with them for many years, was.
The advisor’s tone was that of one looking at an idiot as he said, “So what if we accept the Crown Prince of Wu? The Emperor Wu has so many sons he can just choose another one, and Wu will alsk not transfer all the hatred to us. The Emperor Wu only needs to move a little finger and it will be too much for hik to take. What kind of brain is this?”
Shi Ran held the letter and had not let go the whole time. Su Mu’s ambitious eyes appeared in his mind, and his abdomen suddenly tightened.
Suppressing the lustful thoughts in his heart, Shi Ran put the letter neatly on the desk, saying: “The abnormal phenomenon shown by the Qing Kingdom is enough to attract the attention of Emperor Wu and me. Even if he does nothing, we will not let him grow stronger.”
He stretched out his hand and took out a stack of soft toilet paper, and then squeezed it into a ball, his eyes fierce like a jackal, “This little thing sucked more than 100,000 taels of silver from our Shi Kingdom last year, and added with various other commodities, the wealth that the Qing Kingdom has earned from our Shi Kingdom is probably hundreds of thousands of gold and silver.”
The advisor frowned and said, “Your Majesty, can we prohibit merchants from selling goods that come from the Qing Kingdom?”
Shi Ran’s face was stern, and he said in a deep voice: “Forbid it, but it won’t be able to be completely forbidden.”
The advisor looked at the goods on Shi Ran’s desk and said: “Who came up with these strange things? If only he could serve the Shi Kingdom.”
There was a smile on Shi Ran’s mouth, a strange light gleamed in his eyes, and a wicked smile appeared at the corner of his mouth. He said, “My official, you speak the truth.”
So long as he thought of pressing down such an outstanding person, such a mysterious person, such an incredible person under his body, he would immediately become hard.
Imagining pushing that proud and indomitable person on the bed and making him cry, Shi Ran’s whole body would feel heated.
The advisor carefully observed Shi Ran, who was lost in his own world, and carefully asked: “Then, Your Majesty, how shall we deal with the Crown Prince and Princess of the Wu Kingdom.”
Shi Ran said: “Keep them imprisoned for a period of time, and after the battle for the heir position of the Wu Kingdom is about to be subdued, then let them go back. In addition, the people who are placed in the imperial city of the Wu Kingdom can start to act.”
Shi Ran had not spent his time playing around when he had been a hostage prince in the Wu Kingdom for nearly ten years.
The advisor carefully asked again: “And the Qing Kingdom…..”
This time Shi Ran began to frown. The 60,000 soldiers and horses sent last time, together with the commanding general Duanmu Tie, were all lost at Su Mu’s hands. This caused him to dare not treat the Qing Kingdom as his inferior. But his focus was now on the Wu Kingdom, and he really couldn’t spare another hand to do more; and little tricks couldn’t shake Su Mu at all.
Pacing around the room with a hand behind his back, Shi Ran said: “Send more spies into the Qing Kingdom and watch them carefully. Don’t make any moves for the time being.”
In Shi Ran’s eyes, the threat of the Qing Kingdom was not as great as the Wu Kingdom. Now that the Crown Prince of Wu had fallen into his hands, he had to make good use of it.
Su Mu gave Shi Ran a multiple-choice question, whether to deal with the Wu Kingdom or the Qing Kingdom first.
The Wing Kingdom had made great progress, but it was still weak.
The Wu Kingdom was already powerful, and with the new farming technology provided by Su Mu, its national power would only become stronger and stronger. If there was no way to contain the Wu Kingdom, then it would only be a matter of time before the Wu Kingdom reunified the world.
Knowing that it was a hook, Shi Ran could still only rush to bite it.
In the study of the Crown Prince’s Palace, Su Mu was reading the latest battle report, 90% of which were good news, and Su Mu’s mouth curved upwards unconsciously.
In terms of advantages, the Qing Kingdom had three: weapons, popular support, and sufficient reinforcements.
And the enemy had three disadvantages: weapons, popular support, and lack of reinforcements.
Weapon advantages include gunpowder, the most sophisticated weapons, and a small amount of firearms.
As for popular support, Su Mu’s policies had allowed the people to live a life that they could not even think of before. There was no need to worry about not having enough food, no need to worry about layers of exploitation by the local tyrants and evil gentry. And in addition to Su Mu’s various brainwashing education, the Qing Kingdom’s cohesion had reached an unprecedented level in this world.
Sufficient back-up reinforcements. The Qing Kingdom had already stocked enough grain and grass rations the year before and last year to ensure that soldiers could eat three meals a day.
An older attendant walked to Su Mu and whispered: “Your Highness, Ye Gongzi asks to see you.”
Didn’t that guy run back to report his safety and clean up the mess that Princess Hongyun left in jianghu? Why did he come back so soon?
Also, when did he learn to behave with etiquette?
Su Mu frowned and said: “Let him in.”
After a while, Ye Qingfeng, who was drunk and smelled of alcohol, stumbled in. He wore only a long robe on his upper body, and the clothes on his right shoulder seemed to have been pulled down loosely, revealing a large swath of muscular chest, unabashedly showing off his male capital.
Ye Qingfeng stumbled as he walked to Su Mu and reached out to him. Su Mu leaned back in disgust and said, “Come to see me again after you clean yourself up.”
Ye Qingfeng seemed to have not heard it. He supported himself on the table and walked around to Su Mu, saying with a slurred tongue: “Dar…..darling…..stop …..stop swaying!”
Su Mu glanced at Ye Qingfeng, who was about to fall to the ground, and said, “You are the one who is swaying.”
“I’m swaying?” He pointed his finger at his handsome face, and let his fingers sway along with his body. “No, darling, it’s obviously you, you’re the one swaying.”
Su Mu rolled his eyes and was too lazy to reason with a drunkard, and asked, “Why did you get this drunk?”
Although this guy usually didn’t have any proper behavior and also liked things in the cup, but he had never seen him drink himself stupid. Could it be that something happened?
Su Mu was wondering with doubt, when Ye Qingfeng suddenly pounced towards him with his whole body. It was easy to escape with Su Mu’s martial arts, but in that case, Ye Qingfeng would probably disfigure his handsome face.
In this case, Su Mu could only stand in place and let him hold himself.
Ye Qingfeng hugged Su Mu in a daze, grabbed Su Mu’s perky buttocks with his hands very familiar with the action, and uttered dirty words in his ear.
“Darling…..darling, I really want to f**k you, let…..let me f**k you…..”
“Piss off!” Su Mu pushed him onto the chair behind him.
Ye Qingfeng stretched his arms around Su Mu’s thin waist, pulled him into his arms, and said with a sad expression: “Darling…..darling, how can you be so heartless…..I’m already disowned yet you still…..tell me to piss off…..”
Su Mu’s heart moved, his tone softened, and he reached out and smoothed back Ye Qingfeng’s hair that was sticking to his cheeks from the wine, and asked, “What happened?”

Ye Qingfeng was still talking drunkenly, but his hands were not at all honest. After a while, those fiery big hands directly pinched Su Mu’s smooth buttocks.
“So they…..they still want me to marry that Qin Qin Qin something? I refused, so my…..dad said if I won’t marry…..then I won’t ever be allowed back!”
