"Imperial Physician Qi, We can promise you the Little Princess' hand in marriage to Qi Haoran. However, please leave the other matters to Us."
Mo Shangfei was a member of the Xia family after all and the Xia family was backed by Supreme Jin. He did not want to offend Supreme Jin over this one thing! Most importantly, Supreme Gao deeply admires Mo Shangfei. This kid has formidable talent. If Mo Shangfei were older, he could even take on several Qi Haorans.
Nevertheless, admiration could only go so far. Now that the Crown Prince's life was at stake, he still needed this old man's help to save him so he could only listen to him now.
"Your Imperial Majesty, if you don't kill Mo Shangfei, then please consider me powerless over the Crown Prince's illness!" Imperial Physician Qi smiled coldly. He placed his hands behind his back as he stared arrogantly up at Supreme Gao.
Supreme Gao had long cursed at the old man in secret. If it was not for the fact that the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian was a difficult person to invite and that his whereabouts were always unclear, He would have flipped out against this old man long ago!
"Imperial Physician Qi..."
Supreme Gao took a deep breath and was just about to speak when a voice chimed in from outside the study, "You want Mo Shangfei's life? He's with me now but I wonder if you have the ability to kill him."
The doors to the study flew open and the guard was thrown to the ground. He quickly scrambled to his feet, dusted himself off and knelt before Supreme Gao, "Your Imperial Majesty, I wasn't able to stop them, please forgive me."
Supreme Gao's face sank. He stared at the pair who were walking in and asked darkly, "How did you manage to enter the palace?"
The Little Princess rose to her feet and walked towards Mo Shangfei's side. She then smiled prettily, "I gave him the token."
"Gao Shiqi, you..."
Supreme Gao almost went mad with rage. Really, this grown girl can't be kept at home but she has actually given a token away to an outsider so casually. She was not even bothered about what her Imperial Father would think!
"Hmph!" Qi Haoran glanced at Mo Shangfei but when his eyes fell upon Gu Ruoyun, a menacing light flashed in his pupils, "Grandfather, this was the woman who had hurt me!"
Hearing this, Imperial Physician Qi's eyes turned icy, "I never thought that you would be so daring and have the audacity to send yourself here on a silver platter. Are you here to die?"
"Here to die? No." Gu Ruoyun shook her head, "I'm here to present a betrothal gift."
Everyone around instantly went into a daze as they looked at each other. Even the Little Princess and Mo Shangfei were stunned. No one knew what Gu Ruoyun was talking about.
"You say that you're here to present a betrothal gift?" Supreme Gao narrowed his eyes slightly as he observed the woman in green with utmost seriousness.
"That's right." Gu Ruoyun nodded, "I've brought Mo Shangfei here to present a betrothal gift to request your permission, Supreme Gao, for the Little Princess to marry him."
Instantly, a voice filled with shock cried out.
Qi Haoran's face was ashen and he bellowed angrily, "You say that Mo Shangfei wants to marry the Little Princess? What status is he going to bring? A little bodyguard from the Xia family? Simply with this, does he have the right to marry the Little Princess?"
Gu Ruoyun calmly looked at him, "His status as the second generation disciple of the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian. Is that not enough?"
The Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian's grand disciple?
Mo Shangfei was stunned. How am I not aware of my own identity as the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian's grand disciple?
Qi Haoran looked as if he had just heard a great joke and burst into laughter, "You say that he's the Holy Doctor Bai Zhongtian's grand disciple? Is there no one here who isn't aware of the Holy Doctor's proud nature and that he's never had a disciple? What more to having a grand disciple? Little girl, even when boasting, one should survey the situation. You're simply talking nonsense!"
