Walking into Weiyang Capital.
Although Su Shi had already prepared his heart, he was still shocked by the prosperous scene in front of him.
The streets were wide and neat, surrounded by shops, and the streets were crowded with people, most of whom were wearing luxurious and glamorous clothes.
In the distance, in the center of the city, was an extremely luxurious palace complex.
White jade was used as bricks and gold as tiles, shining in the sunlight, exuding royal majesty and solemnity.
“Extravagant, too extravagant.”
Su Shi shook his head, “Compared to this, the Southwest Region is just a poor countryside.”
This place was the main heart of the Empire.
No matter how powerful the Demonic path was, as long as it did not enter the Central Plains, it would always be a small fight.
Chen Qingluan admonished, “This is the imperial capital, anyone can take offense if you don’t behave. So you shouldn’t talk nonsense anymore, and it’s best not to reveal your identity so easily.”
Although Su Shi was a hero of mankind, after all, his identity was special, so it was better to keep a low profile here.
Su Shi nodded, “Don’t worry, I don’t want to get myself in trouble either.”
Chen Qingluan was just about to say something when a call suddenly came from the side.
The two of them turned around and looked.
They saw a man in red walking quickly with a smile on his feminine face, “Qingluan, you’re finally back, I thought you were really left behind at the border!”
Chen Qingluan frowned, “How many times have I told you that you are not allowed to call me Qingluan, believe it or not, I will definitely break your dog legs!”
The man in red’s legs trembled and smiled, “Aren’t you too cruel?”
He noticed Su Shi on the side and said curiously, “This is ……”
Chen Qingluan introduced each other, “His name is Hua Manlou, he’s my hairdresser I grew up with, but just an ordinary friend.”
She also deliberately added, afraid that it would cause Su Shi’s misunderstanding.
“As for him ……”
Chen Qingluan didn’t think of how to introduce Su Shi.
Su Shi took the initiative to say, “So this is Brother Hua, my name is Shi Su, I am Qing Luan’s distant cousin.”
Hua Manlou was silent for a moment, “How come I haven’t heard her mention you before?”
Su Shi said with a straight face, “A very distant kind, her grandfather’s daughter is my neighbor’s third aunt.”
He said and looked at Chen Qingluan, “Isn’t that right, cousin?”
The corners of Chen Qingluan’s mouth twitched, “That’s right, cousin.”
What a mess!
Hua Manlou was also in a daze, and after struggling for a long time, he couldn’t figure it out.
“So it is a cousin!”
“Cousin Qingluan is my cousin, we are all on the same side, since we are here in Weiyang Capital, then I should give a good welcome.”
Hua Manlou enthusiastically pulled Su Shi, “Let’s go, let’s have a drink!”
Chen Qingluan hurriedly stopped him, “Where do you want to take him?”
Hua Manlou said, “Where else would two grown men go? Of course we’re going to Fengchun House! Isn’t it fun to drink wine while listening to music?”
Chen Qingluan gritted her teeth and said, “You mean drinking wine in the company of girls, don’t you?”
Fengchun House was a brothel.
It was the largest brothel in the imperial capital.
Chen Qingluan opened her arms and stood in front of the two of them, “If you want to go, you can go alone, but don’t take him with you!”
Hua Manlou frowned, “Brother Shi is your cousin, not your husband, aren’t you being too strict?!”
Chen Qingluan blushed, “I just don’t allow it!”
Su Shi cleared his throat, “It’s fine if you want to go.”
“Actually, I ……”
Chen Qingluan crossed her arms. “Then I’ll also go with you guys.”
Hua Manlou was dissatisfied, “You are a girl, what are you going to a brothel for?”
“Who said girls can’t go to brothels?”
Chen Qingluan pointed at Su Shi and said, “My cousin has taken a girl there before!”
Su Shi: “……”
“Forget it, whatever.”
Hua Manlou pulled Su Shi forward and said in a low voice, “Brother Shi, with a cousin like that around, I can only say you are unlucky.”
Su Shi looked helpless.
Didn’t the two of them not ask his opinion at all?
This place was located at the edge of the moat.
The roof of the pavilion was beautiful and sparkling, and it looked like a palace from a distance.
At the door, a woman with heavy make-up was ushering people in and out.
When she saw the three of them, her eyes lit up and she walked over with a smile on her face, “Yo, Young Master Hua, you haven’t been here in a while.”
Hua Manlou took out a stack of silver tickets and skillfully inserted them into the woman’s collar, “Go and find me a quiet and elegant seat, I will be entertaining my precious guests today.”
“Don’t worry. I’ll take care of it.”
The woman collected the silver tickets and smiled brighter, “Please go inside, you three.”
They walked into the hall.
The lights and wine were green, and the girls leaned on the arms of the guests, exchanging glasses, chatting, and laughing.
Chen Qingluan’s cheeks flushed slightly and she shouted sarcastically, “What a disgusting place.”
Hua Manlou shook his head and said, “What do you know? Those who come here are officials or literati, this place is really an elegant place.”
“Hmph, only a fool would believe that.”
Chen Qingluan looked at Su Shi’s calm appearance, recalled that she had met him in a brothel in Linfeng City before, and secretly said in her heart:
“He really is a pervert!”
“It seems that he is also a regular customer of the prostitutes.”
They reached the first floor.
Here, by the window, you can see the flower boat in the moat.
The pimp turned her waist and walked over, saying in a smooth voice, “Young Master Hua, which girl would you like to order today?”
Hua Manlou said, “Call Qingqing to accompany me. Also, arrange the best Huayin girls for my companions.”
The first beauty was called Oiran, and only one would be produced each year.
The second and third are called Huayin, and the next five are called Huafu.
The rest are called Huayan and Huanu.
The girls ranked above Huanu are usually the ones who sell their art and not their bodies, and can earn a lot of money just by playing a few songs.
And an Oiran was even more sought after by people, they were willing to spend a lot of money just to get a smile from the beauty.
Su Shi shook his head and said, “I don’t need to, Brother Hua can do whatever you want.”
Hua Manlou thought he was afraid of Chen Qingluan and shook his head, “In that case, I don’t want it either, go find some good wine.”
The pimp shook her waist and walked away. Chen Qingluan hummed softly, “So you still have some common sense.”
Su Shi laughed and whispered, “With Imperial Censor Chen by my side, how can I have another girl in my eyes?”
Chen Qingluan’s jade cheeks flushed slightly, and her heart beat a little faster as she quietly pinched it, “Disgusting, comparing me to a woman in a brothel.”
Seeing the two whispering, Hua Man Lou cupped his chin, his eyes pondering.
The two seems to have an unusual relationship!
Just then, an insulting voice came, “Yo, isn’t this Young Master Hua? Are you here to embarrass yourself again?”
