In the hall of justice, there was a mold scent in the air. Although Xi Li had asked around, the guards were still easy to handle.
“You want to see the felon who killed the beloved of the emperor, time is limited so go in and out quickly.” The guard took the silver before looking at the man beside him, “Let them in.”
Hearing the word ‘beloved’, Luo Qing Chen couldn’t help rolling her eyes at him.
Xi Jin was locked up in the deepest cell, covered in mold and cobwebs.
Luo Qing Chen knit her brows and her heart couldn’t help trembling. What had happened in this year to make Feng Si Zui this obsessed with a face?
He was so obsessed that he had imprisoned his old friend of ten years Xi Jin. Just what…..was he thinking?
“Tyrant!” Xi Li muttered as he quickly walked forward.
“What?” Luo Qing Chen followed him as she said with pursed lips, “The evidence against your big sister is quite solid, how is the emperor a tyrant?”
Every person had something they wanted to protect in their hearts, she wasn’t an exception.
Even if the most important thing was to clear Xi Jin of her charges, she still couldn’t take anyone saying anything bad about Feng Si Zui.
“How is he not a tyrant?” Xi Li heard this and he turned around to say, “He would rather believe two sisters who had just entered the palace and wouldn’t believe my big sister who had been with him for ten years. His eyes are completely blind, how is he not a tyrant?”
Xi Li was clearly very angry. After all, his big sister who had been pampered since she was young was locked up in this dark and cold dungeon, he was very unwilling.
“What a joke!” Luo Qing Chen narrowed her cold eyes and said word for word, “If it wasn’t for the emperor back then, your big sister would have been buried with that Far General!”
“You……” Xi Li was a bit speechless as he could see a trace of anger in her eyes.
But he didn’t understand why she was this angry.
“Me, what about me?” Luo Qing Chen looked up with her clear eyes, “With the evidence being placed in front of everyone, why do you think that the emperor would favour your big sister, the murderer?”
“My big sister didn’t kill anyone!” Xi Li bit his lip and said in a firm voice.
“Did you see it?” Luo Qing Chen gave a shrug, “There was no one who saw the poisoning and your big sister was the only target. Feng…..The emperor didn’t do anything wrong, do you think that the ruler would protect a concubine in front of all his ministers?”
There was silence around them for a bit.
Her powerful words made Xi Li unable to refute with a single word, he just turned around and softly said, “You really are speaking up for him.”
“Sorry.” She let out a long breath, “I might not have taken your feelings into consideration.”
“No, you’re right.” Xi Li moved forward without turning back.
Luo Qing Chen seemed to have heard a soft word, “I just don’t like hearing you praise him like this.”
One was his big sister and the other was a person he had just met and appreciated, but they were both speaking up for that violent emperor.
“Big sister……” Xi Li who had been in front came to the iron door and softly called out.
Xi Jin in the prison was surprised before slowly turning around and tentatively speaking, “Yes, is it Xiao Li?”
“It’s me, it’s me, big sister…..”
Xi Jin’s nose became stuffy and her tears came out. She couldn’t say a single word.
