“Someone!” Feng Si Zui’s cold eyes slowly fell down onto Xi Jin, the coldness in his eyes almost froze her.
He said in a soft voice, “Take concubine Xi away and lock her up. The rest will be handled by the hall of justice.”
Guard Fan turned to look at Xi Jin, “Concubine consort, please forgive me.”
“Don’t touch me.” Xi Jin’s eyes trembled as her mouth opened and closed. Then she said with a tearful look, “Ten years as friends! If I wanted to harm someone, I would have killed Luo Qing Chen back then, not a substitute!”
As soon as her voice fell, she turned to leave the Cherry Blossom Hall.
What was right and wrong didn’t seem that important at this moment.
The current Feng Si Zui had already blinded his eyes and his heart.
It had to be said, when the three words ‘Luo Qing Chen’ came from Xi Jin, his breath stopped and his heart had skipped a beat.
Xi Jin was right, that face was the only supporting pillar in his will to live.
He…...He couldn’t lose it.
Thinking of this, Feng Si Zui turned around and said to the imperial doctor on the side, “Wash her clean and put on makeup, then seal her in an ice coffin.”
The imperial doctor was stunned. He thought that this woman was the one that the emperor loved, he loved her so much that he even sent concubine Xi to be tried by the hall of justice.
But he never thought that this obsessed emperor’s ‘love’ wouldn’t let this girl go in peace.
Rather…...Rather, he wanted to preserve her face…...
At the same time, Luo Qing Chen had finally arrived in Long Peace City!
It had to be said, the distance between Clear Jade Mountain and Long Peace City couldn’t just be described by the word ‘far’.
It was clearly very, very far. Of course, this was mainly because of the ancient era that didn’t have any means of transportation.
If she had been given a Maserati a few days ago, she would have been able to reach Long Peace City in a day!
Long Peace City didn’t change. The hawkers had their small stands, the children with candied hawthorns in their hands ran around laughing.
Luo Qing Chen found a good inn to stay at. Yan Xiu hadn’t been stingy with her, he had given her enough.
“This guest, what do you need?”
“Give me a pot of tea, a few side dishes, and then some fruit.”
“Alright! Please wait a minute!”
She took out the Moon Glass Fan to play with while listening to the people gossiping at the next table.
Actually, she didn’t care about this matter, but when she heard the words concubine Xi, she couldn’t help perking her ears up.
“Did you hear about this? There’s something that happened to concubine Xi.”
“Keep your voice down, do you not want your head anymore!”
“Aren’t I talking very softly? I heard that even the prime minister couldn’t protect concubine Xi this time.”
“Is it true that she killed the Mu Family’s fool daughter?”
“It’s true! I heard from people in the palace say that the evidence is conclusive!”
“Ze, ze, I never would have thought it! She really is a vicious person!”
There were two voices that sounded at the same time. One was from Luo Qing Chen and the other…..was from a cute little boy?
“What nonsense is this?”
“What nonsense are you saying?”
Although they weren’t word for word, the meaning was the same.
The people who were sitting at the next table were stunned, throwing down two silvers before even they finished eating.
Luo Qing Chen looked in the direction of the cute little boy and raised a brow to ask, “Who are you? Why are you speaking up for Xi Jin?”
Looking carefully, he didn’t seem like a cute little boy, rather he was a handsome young man!
