When Luo Qing Chen rushed to the square, Chu Xi Mo was high on stage. The executioner took a sip of wine before spitting it on the blade.
“Brother, can you die a bit slower? If you die right away, I will be buried with you!”
As the executioner, they were all the best ‘swordsmen’. The time for his death by a thousand cuts was set for two months later.
If the prisoner died during these two months, the executioner would also be executed.
Chu Xi Mo didn’t reply, his slender fingers softly slid across the floor.
The crowd was abuzz and Luo Qing Chen was standing in a high place, prepared to steal the prisoner at any time.
It wasn’t that she didn’t believe in Chu Xi Mo, rather she didn’t want to see him being hurt at all.
“Ke, ke.” Lin Ruo Jing on the side sat down in an official’s chair, the fifth grade official that came to this execution even gave his spot to him.
After all, it was the prime minister beside him, a trivial fifth grade official couldn’t offend him.
“The time is here, begin.” He took the token off the table and threw it on the ground as his eyes filled with joy.
Luo Qing Chen was planning to use the space and time freeze to take Chu Xi Mo away.
The commoners had moved before she could.
“Let the emperor go, I’m willing to exchange my life for his!”
“The emperor gave us gold to treat my seriously ill son, I am willing to exchange my life for his!”
“The water of grace will be returned in a spring. Not to mention that the emperor gave us a spring and my life isn’t even worth the water of grace.”
“Let the emperor go, let the emperor go, let the emperor go!”
Waves of voices chanted out. The bags of silver marked with ‘emperor’ had received the reward it deserved.
Even Luo Qing Chen’s eyes couldn’t help turning red at this.
The sea emperor, stealing from the rich to help the poor. Millions of citizens were grateful to him.
This was a scene that even a pirate would be happy to see! There is a day when he was in danger that those he helped would be willing to exchange their lives for his.
Luo Qing Chen’s heart was filled with waves. The blood in her body burned with these cries and there was an immersive feeling that made her feel willing to exchange her life for his.
Of course, she could have done that already…...
“You, you…..What are you all doing? Do you want to rebel!” Lin Ruo Jing jumped out of his seat. He clearly never thought that the citizens would actually do this instead of just watching!
He was a pirate, shouldn’t everyone hate him?
Why did all these people love him!
“The corrupt officials make it so the citizens can’t make a living, if it wasn’t for the emperor, we would already have starved to death!” One of the young men with a scarf over their head stood on the stage and shouted, “Let the emperor go. We are willing to bleed together, just so the court can give us a path of life!”
“Audacious!” There was a powerful voice that came from the southeast of the square.
Luo Qing Chen narrowed her eyes and recognized this golden sedan.
She knit her brows, narrowing her eyes as she looked at He Hong Jie who came out of the sedan.
This was a figure that was only below one person, why would He Hong Jie personally come to Chu Xi Mo’s execution?
This was something that she was very surprised by.
