Imperial Concubine Ling slowly shut her eyes, her fists clenching even tighter as her noble face had unconsciously started to twist up. After a long time, she finally opened her eyes and let out a breath of impure air.
“The Luo family… and Gu Ruoyun… I have a whole new level of respect for you now! Despite knowing that my father had a daughter like me, you still dared to harm him! Since that’s the case, don’t blame me for taking revenge for my father!”
Ling Yu raised her teary eyes and looked at Imperial Concubine Ling pitifully.
“Yu’er, go send my imperial decree: get Gu Ruoyun here to see me!”
Imperial Concubine Ling said coldly.
In the court, General Luo was one of the men His Majesty relied on. Although Imperial Concubine Ling was a favoured concubine, she was unable to take down a general that had been granted great authority by the emperor himself. However, Gu Ruoyun was different. Although Hundred Herb Hall was strong and influential, she was merely a little apprentice in there. Shopkeeper Zhao of Hundred Herb Hall was a clever man; he wouldn’t make the entire Azure Dragon Country his enemy over a little apprentice.
Ling Yu was overjoyed, a vicious light flashing through her eyes.
Gu Ruoyun, this time, let’s see how you’re going to survive this! Even having a hundred lives won’t save you now! As long as I have Aunt’s imperial decree, I can even take Hundred Herb Hall if I want to, let alone a little apprentice like you.
It was clear that in Ling Yu’s heart, as powerful as Hundred Herb Hall was, it was only a little merchant shop that was unable to fight with imperial power.
Within the study…
Zuo Shangchen lied on a sedan, his expression languid and loose. His almond-shaped eyes carried a trace of a seductive smile, and he wasn’t even properly looking at the emperor sitting up on the throne.
“Zuo Shangchen, is this your idea of proper etiquette as Vermillion Bird Country’s fourth prince?” Leng Yanfeng’s brows knitted slightly, a wave of cold and clear disdain flashing across his grave face.
Hearing this, Zuo Shangchen smiled.
It would be hard to find anyone in the world, let alone his peers, to match that smile. Not only were the women charmed, but even the men couldn’t help holding their breaths in amazement.
“Your Highness, this prince is too used to doing as he likes, so this prince doesn’t understand ceremonial etiquette. If this prince is unfit to speak with your country’s emperor due to this, then this prince will leave now.”
Having said so, Zuo Shangchen’s sedan was about to leave when the Emperor, Leng Wujing, suddenly spoke up to stop him.
“What? You were the ones who said that this prince doesn’t understand proper etiquette. Don’t tell me you’re going to stop this prince from leaving?”
Zuo Shangchen waved his feather fan and said with a face full of smiles.
Leng Wujing slightly narrowed his eyes. He had thought that he could see through anyone, but it was this smiling devilish man alone that he couldn’t read from start to finish…
It was as if he was a puzzle filled with danger, and that danger also filled him with fear…
That’s right, fear!
Even Leng Wujing didn’t know why that, as the ruler of a country, he would be this afraid of a young man in his twenties!!
“Fourth Prince, let’s talk directly. Why have you come all the way from your Vermillion Bird Country to my Azure Dragon Country for!”
“Oh,” Zuo Shangchen caressed his chin and smiled indolently, “For one person.”
Leng Wujing was stunned for a moment. This name, Gu Ruoyun, had been appearing often recently.
Who would have thought that Zuo Shangchen would have come here just for her?
Leng Yanfeng harrumphed, and said expressionlessly: “Zuo Shangchen, as far as I know, you aren’t acquainted with Gu Ruoyun.”
“We didn’t know each other before,” Zuo Shangchen raised his brows, “However, I’ve long heard of her name. I came from so far away just to see her. It was laughable that such a peerless genius would actually be mistaken as a good-for-nothing by all of you. If this prince hadn’t come here by coincidence, I wouldn’t have known that there would be someone with such talent in this world.”
