Chapter 87

Chapter 87: Mo Rushuang recommends Lin Beifan to the person behind her!

The morning court had ended, and Lin Beifan immediately ran happily to collect his money.

If he were to study hot air balloons in the conventional way, it would cost him 2 million and take several decades, and he might not even get any results. However, since he was from another world, he already knew the principle behind hot air balloons.

With this knowledge, he could save a lot of money and time by directly creating the final and most mature version of the hot air balloon.

All the money saved went straight into his pocket.

“The most crucial part of a hot air balloon is the material of the balloon! As long as we can find a material that is waterproof, air-proof, and durable, we can create a huge hot air balloon that can ascend without any problems!”

“And I happen to know how to do it! As long as I can create it, manned flight can be expected!”

Lin Beifan was secretly pleased.

He had already made a calculation to purchase suitable materials to weave into the balloon and then give the balloon special treatment to make it waterproof, air-proof, and durable. Finally, he would add some other devices…

It would probably cost him a few thousand taels, and the rest of the money would go into his pocket!

The more Lin Beifan thought about it, the happier he became. “If I spend more than 10,000 taels on this, I lose!”

After he returned home, Lin Beifan immediately purchased a large quantity of materials and hired hundreds of people to work on it, creating a huge spectacle. He wanted the Empress and the civil and military officials to see that he was tirelessly studying the hot air balloon.

He really did spend the money he saved and did not keep any for himself.


At this time, Mo Rushuang and her companion, who had already left the capital and hurried back to Northen Hebei by horse, arrived at a luxurious mansion. After being announced by the servants, they went inside and met a middle-aged man dressed in a fancy gown.

The two of them paid their respects and said in unison, “We pay our respects to the prince, long live the prince!”

The middle-aged man in fancy clothes walked over quickly, laughing heartily and politely, “Haha! We are all comrades, you two don’t need to be so polite. Please sit down quickly! Come on, bring some tea and don’t neglect our guests!”

Mo Rushuang and her companion felt a warm feeling in their hearts as they said in unison, “Thank you, Your Highness!”

They sat down, and tea was served with a faint scent of smoke.

The man in fancy clothes, the prince, looked at the two dust-covered youths and said with emotion, “You two have really worked hard! This trip was only a little over a month, but you two have a little more vicissitudes on your faces. It’s not easy!”

“It wasn’t hard. We just ran errands,” Mo Rushuang replied.

“Compared to you, Your Highness, what we did was trivial! You are the hero who saves the country and the people!” her companion flatteringly added.

The prince waved his hand with a smile and modestly said, “Well well. You two have overrated me. As a descendant of the royal family, it is my duty to hope for less conflict and killing in the world so that the people can live in peace and happiness. Compared to the two of you who act for public welfare, I am far inferior.”

Mo Rushuang and her companion were deeply moved.

Only by pursuing such enlightened rulers could the world have hope!

“By the way, have you gained anything from this trip? Did you find the Night Hero? What did he say? Is he willing to join me?” the prince asked.

The two of them looked at each other, and Mo Rushuang said with embarrassment, “Your Highness, we’re sorry. We didn’t gain anything from this trip, and I couldn’t find the night hero. To find him, we even pretended to be him and went out to help the poor, but we still only met him once. Unfortunately, he has probably already left the capital, and we don’t know where he went.”

“Ah… that’s such a shame!” The prince slapped his thigh and sighed regretfully.

Mo Rushuang and her companion felt even more ashamed.

“So what you’re saying is that you two are the fake night heroes that caused a stir in the capital?” the prince asked.

“Yes, it’s my brother and me,” Mo Rushuang nodded.

“According to what I know, that incident happened on the first day of the month, more than 20 days ago! Why haven’t we heard anything from you two, and where did you go?” The prince asked curiously.

“I dare not deceive Your Highness,” Mo Rushuang said, bowing. “That night, my brother and I came out as fake night heroes to help the poor, but we were ambushed by the government! They sent thousands of soldiers and even innate experts to hunt us down!”

“We barely survived that night! Luckily, we took refuge in the mansion of Lin Beifan, the new top scholar who just passed the imperial examination. He saved us and helped us escape with our lives. We spent most of our time in his mansion, recovering from our injuries, before leaving the capital to report to Your Highness!”

The prince was puzzled. “Ah? You mean that Lin Beifan saved you? But he’s a person of the court. How could he have saved you?”

Mo Rushuang then explained the incident outside the city where they met Lin Beifan.

“I see! You two have gone through a lot. Had I known, I wouldn’t have sent you two out. We almost lost you!” The prince regretted his decision.

Mo Rushuang and her companion were moved by the words and said, “Serving Your Highness is our duty!”

“Since you two have come in contact with Lin Beifan for some time, you should know what kind of person he is! Can you tell me what he is really like? Rumors say he’s a huge corrupt official, extremely greedy…”

Mo Rushuang felt very uncomfortable upon hearing this.
She quickly replied, “Your Highness, those are all baseless rumors. Don’t trust everything you hear!”

The prince raised his eyebrows in surprise, “Really? Can you tell me what kind of person he is?”

“Lin Beifan is actually a principled corrupt official. He only takes money from other corrupt officials and doesn’t harm the people. And in private, he has done many things for the people, but has not been understood…”

Mo Rushuang continued to talk about Lin Beifan and even slightly glorified his image.

“Ah… It turned out to be like this! It seems that rumors from the outside world are mostly unreliable and not trustworthy!” The prince smiled bitterly.

Seeing Lin Beifan’s image being whitewashed, Mo Rushuang felt unexpectedly happy.

She thought for a moment and said, “Your Highness, we can actually win him over!”

“Why do you say that?” The prince was puzzled.

“Your Highness!” Mo Rushuang bowed. “Lin Beifan is the new top scholar who has won the imperial examination. In terms of talent, there are few in the world who can compare to him! He vigorously abolished the reparations between the two countries, proving that he has a good heart and considers the people, and has great vision! Although he is corrupt, he is also in a dirty official environment who has no choice. Even so, he still maintains the most basic bottom line and principles and does not harm the people!”

“Such talent is very rare!” Mo Rushuang recommended Lin Beifan highly. “Right now, we are planning a major event, and we need to recruit soldiers and buy horses. If Lin Beifan can be of use to Your Highness, he would be like a tiger with wings added!”

“This… let me think about it!” The prince was lost in thought.
Mo Rushuang felt a little disappointed.

She really hoped that the prince would agree immediately.

In this way, they would have a chance to work together, fight for a common cause, and even after the chaos was over…?
As she thought about it, she blushed a bit.

Guo Shaoshuai, who was sitting behind her, saw it and wasn’t happy!

She must be thinking about that bastard again!

It is clear that she recommended it to the prince, hoping to have more opportunities to get in touch with him in the future…

He couldn’t understand it. They had only known each other for more than 20 days. The senior sister, who was always knowledgeable and calm, fell in love with that bastard who was so irritating to talk to!

Is it just because he’s handsome?

Just because he’s talented?

The senior sister is not that superficial! This is simply unreasonable!

Ah, that bastard!

If he has the chance to go back, he will definitely beat him up!

“This is a major event. Let me think about it carefully! Two young friends, rest first and I’ll let you know when I make a decision!”

The Prince politely saw them off. “Yes, Your Highness! We take our leave!” the two stood up and bowed.

At this moment, an elegantly dressed handsome young man rushed in and saw Mo Rushuang with great joy: “Rushuang, you’re back! I heard from the servants that you came back, so I came to see you immediately!”

At this time, the Prince’s face became stern and he rebuked, “Jie, as the prince of the Wang’s family, how can you be so impetuous?”

The handsome young man immediately bowed and said, “I know I was wrong, please forgive me, Father!” The person in front of him is the Prince’s son, Wu Yingjie.

“Two young friends, my son is impetuous, and I apologize for embarrassing you!” the Prince said ashamedly.

“Your Highness, how can you say that?” Mo Rushuang and Guo Shaoshuai bowed respectfully to the handsome young man and said, “We have met the prince!”

“Both of you are old friends, don’t be formal!” Wu Yingjie quickly said, his eyes glued to Mo Rushuang, reluctant to blink.

Mo Rushuang sighed slightly in her heart. She had always known that the prince had been interested in her. For any woman in the world, if she had the opportunity to become the prince’s woman, she would definitely be excited to go crazy.

However, she didn’t have any feelings for the prince, and she wasn’t a person who admired vanity, so she always kept a polite distance from him and even avoided him specifically sometimes.

Looking at the prince in front of her, another handsome figure came to her mind – Lin Beifan. Unknowingly, she compared the two. In terms of image and temperament, the prince was also considered handsome and suave, with a natural sense of nobility because of his royal birth, which made people feel extraordinary at a glance.

However, compared with Lin Beifan, he was seconds behind. Lin Beifan’s appearance can be called the “beauty of the prosperous era”, perfect and incomparable.

As for temperament, he has an inherent arrogance, with self-confidence and composure that can solve anything, as if there is nothing in the world he cannot handle.

Yet, secretly, he distributed his ill-gotten gains to the people, leaving nothing for himself. He carried the weight of his bad reputation while still trying to make the world a better place. The empress, who knew the truth, shed tears and said, “My dear, I’m sorry for the injustice done to you. Come to my palace tonight.” The intelligent and beautiful women who knew the truth declared, “No matter how the world sees you, we are willing to stand by your side, through thick and thin!” The martial women of the Jianghu who knew the truth vowed, “If they want to take down Lin, they’ll have to get through us first!” Others were left in shock, “He’s clearly a corrupt official, why are you all protecting him?”
