Cold Rose (II)
    2017-09-27  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Feng Ping, Central European Review reporter

The emperor hadn’t attended the court for days. He was addicted to wine and whores and abandoned the affairs of the country. This worried the emperor’s brother, Prince Zhu Ci, a lot. He feared the dynasty would be ruined in the emperor’s hands. He decided to appeal to the emperor at the risk of death. However, the emperor was an imbecile and weak. He was always suspicious of the intention of his brother, who was more talented than him, because he heard of rumors that the prince was plotting against him, so he was greatly offended by the prince’s appeal. Under the court eunuch’s persuasion, he decided to kill the prince.

The moment this news got out, there was an upheaval in the country. Everyone’s life was in danger. People started to rebel. The Conscientious Camp decided to do their best to save the prince’s life. The young master Liu Cheng was the leader of a small team of a kong fu gang. He was assigned by the head master of the gang to save the prince as he was on the way to be executed.

Eunuch Wang smiled wickedly when the emperor made the decision to kill the prince, who was the only obstacle preventing the eunuch from becoming emperor himself. In order to ensure the death of the prince, Eunuch Wang ordered the beautiful female assassin Cold Rose to kill the prince as he was being transported to jail. He was very confident in Cold Rose, for she had never failed a mission. After Cold Rose departed, Eunuch Wang lay on his golden bed, drinking alcohol with a golden cup as a servant massaged his feet. He anticipated good news from Cold Rose about the death of the prince.

Cold Rose dressed in a long white gown and rode a red horse. It was an evening in December, very dark and cold outside. Cold Rose followed the prison caravan for many miles. She was seeking an opportunity to kill all the guards accompanying the prince and complete her mission. In a dark, damp forest, the sound of the prison caravan echoed everywhere. Cold Rose hated all these men without any reason. She was raised by Eunuch Wang, so she hated anyone he hated. In truth she despised all men for their dirtiness, their indulgence of power, and their heartlessness. But Eunuch Wang was different. He was the only man whom she could trust in the world.

The cold wind blew, and the branches of trees danced in the gusts, lifting Cold Rose’s veil up. If someone were nearby to see Cold Rose under the moonlight, they would be amazed by her beauty.

The prison van went deeper into the woods, where the trees were dense and tall. “The emperor is stupid to give us an order to escort this noble prince in such a bad weather!” Cold Rose heard one prison guard complain to another.

“Have patience. We will reach the prison soon. The emperor warned us to keep an eye on the prince, so we need to be very careful. Otherwise, not one of us will live. We have no other choice. There is no harm following the Eunuch’s order. He is the one who is really in power now,” another guard made a gesture at his throat, pretending to cut off his head. Cold Rose felt vexed by it. She picked up a small stone from the ground and hit the prison guard’s rear.
