There was just a “guang dang” sound as swords clashed. There was a familiar figure in front of her with a sword in his right hand and a cold look in his eyes.
“Lin Nan Yi.” She took a deep breath as her bloodshot eyes filled with a faint layer of mist.
When she softly said those three words, her voice trembled a bit.
Lin Nan Yi stood firmly in front of Yue Cai Zhi dressed in his golden dragon embroidered robe, looking like a ruler. Holding his sword, he looked at her and said, “In the palace, how can you act this audacious?”
There were several dozen guards that surrounded her.
His voice was cool and each word was like ice that pierced her heart.
Imperial tutor Yue came out of the palace and rushed over to his daughter, putting her behind him, “Dad will protect you, don’t be afraid!”
“Dad, the emperor…..I……” Yue Cai Zhi’s expression quickly changed as tears came out and she said in a trembling voice, “The captive princess just charged here with her sword. If it wasn’t for the emperor sending some to protect Cai Zhi, Cai Zhi might have gone to the Yellow Springs this time.”
“You won’t go to the Yellow Springs.” She looked up with cold eyes she said through gritted teeth, “You can only go to hell!”
“Audacious, a captive princess can even talk to the empress like this, you should be punished!” Imperial tutor Yue’s strong voice rang out, piercing her heart like a needle.
She looked at Lin Nan Yi and he didn’t refute it, he just stood there with his sword, silently looking at her.
“Empress……” She gave two laughs with a smile so bleak. Her eyes looked at Lin Nan Yi, “Can the empress indiscriminately kill the innocent? In the harem, aren’t there the most basic rules of laws?”
“Luo Qing Chen, you’re slandering people!” Yue Cai Zhi slightly curled her red lips and there were still tears in her eyes as she looked at her and said, “The maid of your cold palace stole my agate jade bracelet first. I had her hand it over, but she wouldn’t admit it. I taught her a little lesson, but I never thought that she would be so weak that she couldn’t survive that!”
“It’s right to punish her, this kind of maid who doesn’t keep her hand clean should be executed!” Imperial tutor Yue gave a cold snort. He looked at her with a righteous gaze, “As for you, a lowly captive princess daring to point your sword at the empress! You’re the one who is breaking the rule of law!”
Wen De knitted his brows and shook his head at her. She saw it, but she wasn’t willing to let this go.
She said that she would get revenge for Xiao Tian, so she would definitely do it.
“Emperor, I will ask you one thing.” She ignored the father and daughter surnamed Yue and took a deep look at Lin Nan Yi as she said in a cold voice, “Do you think Xiao Tian should die?”
The snow filled the sky and there were cold breezes that kept blowing around. The snow fell onto her lashes, mixing with her tears.
Falling for Xiao Tian, falling for her.
“Put down the sword and don’t resist.” His eyes trembled as they filled with complicated emotions and he said in a soft voice, “This one can spare you.”
“Emperor, how can you do that? She almost killed this old minister’s daughter?”
“Emperor, Cai Zhi really was afraid just now. If she tries to kill me again, I might not…..be able to live to the empress crowning ceremony.”
“This is this one’s harem, this one has the final say.” He looked over at imperial tutor Yue with ice cold eyes, “This is this one’s harem, I hope that the imperial tutor won’t interfere.”
