After a close look, it turned out that there were three people coming home. Gui Erniang, who grabbed his hand, said, “We came last night, but we haven’t found the emperor. Take us!” Wei Xiaobao knew that he couldn’t resist, and thought, “I took them to the Cining Palace and shouted. The little emperor was on guard, and it’s not my business to kill the empress dowager.”
2 Wei Xiaobao was led by the three men to the Cining Palace. From a distance, I saw a group of people coming out of the palace carrying two sedan chairs. The first one was the imperial concubine’s, the second one was the empress dowager’s, followed by eunuchs, maids and bodyguards. He had an idea and said in a low voice, “Be careful! In the front sedan chair is the Tartar Emperor, and in the back sedan chair is the Empress Dowager.”
The two sedan chairs were getting closer and closer, and Gui Erniang said “go”. The three people were as straight as a strong wind and heard only a loud noise. The three people hit the first sedan chair with six palms. The Gui family were afraid that they could not kill the emperor. They stabbed four or five swords into the car in a flash. Each sword was bloody.
The attendant guards were shocked and drew out their weapons to stop them. Gui Er Niang said, “Got it”, grabbed her son and rushed north. The bell rang in the palace, and hundreds of doors were closed. Wei Xiaobao shouted, “Don’t panic. It’s important to protect the Empress Dowager!”
5 Wei Xiaobao walked to the front of the Empress Dowager’s sedan chair and said, “The slave Wei Xiaobao came late to rescue the assassin. The assassin has already been killed. Bow down and pray for Saint Ann.” The Empress Dowager said, “Very good, you saved me again.” It turned out that the thin head had already sneaked into the palace and held the empress Dowager hostage. When Mao Dongzhu arrived, the two people crowded into the front sedan chair and ordered the empress Dowager to escort them.
When Wei Xiaobao learned the inside story, he said that he was very lucky, so he went to the front sedan chair to watch. Seeing that the two people were dead and confused, and afraid of revealing secrets, he immediately ordered the original sedan to be carried to cremation, and no one was allowed to peep into the sedan, or he would be shot to death. He didn’t leave until the flames were gone.
Kangxi summoned Wei Xiaobao to the Hall of Mental Cultivation and waited outside the hall. Seeing the commander of the Qianfeng Battalion, Aqichi, coming out of the hall, he knew that the little emperor had deployed his troops and stepped up his guard against assassins. When Kangxi saw Wei Xiaobao, he said that he was afraid of being hurt. He was loyal to the assassin and stabbed the concubine.
Kangxi changed his words and said, “Father and Mother of Heaven, fight against the Qing Dynasty and restore the Ming Dynasty! Lord Wei Xiang, how dare you!” Wei Xiaobao immediately knelt down and cried, “Little Guizi surrender, please forgive me!”
Kangxi stood up and walked up and down the hall, saying, “If you hadn’t read that you have had some minor skills, you would have had a hundred heads, which would have been cut off.” Wei Xiaobao said quickly, “Yes, yes! I am the slave who will protect my lord Jiangshan.” Kangxi said word by word, “I want you to fight against heaven and earth.”
While they were talking, the weapons outside the temple struck and shouted loudly. Kangxi knew that there were hundreds of bodyguards outside the hall, and ignored the assassin. He drew a picture for Wei Xiaobao to see. Wei Xiaobao recognized the detail of his mansion. Kangxi said that the heaven and earth will meet tonight. The Mujia Royal House sent a group of people to meet here. Twelve cannons have been aimed here.
