Su Cha knows that today, Lin Chujiu had sent something in the capital. So knowing that Xiao Tianyao was in a good mood, Su Cha didn’t hesitate to bring several bad news.
In the front line battle, Xiao Tianyao's 300,000 soldiers still remain as the main force in the battlefield. As a result, even if they are brave and strong, they met heavy casualties.
“After recapturing three cities, 20, 000 of our people died. Nearly 10, 000 were injured. And 20, 000 were seriously injured.” Only their people were seriously injured. While the casualty to the emperor’s soldiers were less than 10, 000.
It is hard to avoid casualties in war. But, when Xiao Tianyao heard that many of his soldiers died, he can’t accept it: “How did General Xu reach to that bottom? He is such an idiot!”
They only recovered three cities. There are still other two. Is General Xu planning to consume all of his people before the war ends?
"Most of our people didn’t receive a timely treatment, so they all died. The doctors we sent didn’t receive additional medicines. If the Cui Family didn’t send us a batch of supplies. I’m afraid, the result would be more tragic.” General Xu is very fair in treating the soldiers under his command. But, the emperor is not.
Regardless of who will lead the army, the result will be the same. So, General Xu is quite good enough.
Xiao Tianyao responded with a bang sound. He didn’t speak, he only tapped his fingers on the table. Su Cha listened to the rhythmic sound, but his heart beat couldn’t follow the rhythm. So, he nervously waited for Xiao Tianyao’s instructions.
After a long time, Xiao Tianyao finally opens his mouth: “Benwang will go to Zhuangzi tomorrow.”
“Huh?” Suddenly, Su Cha heard a completely irrelevant statement.
“What? Wangye, could you repeat it again?” When he heard Su Cha, Xiao Tianyao raised an eyebrow and stared at him.
Su Cha immediately shook his head and replied: “I heard it clearly. But, why are you going there?”
"Wangfei is outside the capital. Call out Doctor Wu.” Xiao Tianyao gives an answer, but it only made Su Cha even more puzzled.
Their Wangfei had lived outside the capital for half a month. But, their Wangye didn’t even step a foot in the palace, nor in the capital. So, why is he suddenly going in Zhuangzi?
Is he planning to pay for his sin to Wangfei?
Isn’t it a bit too late for that?
The more he looked at Xiao Tianyao, the more he couldn’t understand it. Well, he wouldn’t ask, if he could understand him. Unfortunately, Xiao Tianyao is not planning to give him the exact answer.
Su Cha failed to get a clear answer. He could only tell Housekeeper Cao to arrange Xiao Tianyao’s things because he will go to Zhuangzi.
Xiao Tianyao is an extreme activist. The next day, he took with him a large number of Xiao Wangfu’s guardsmen outside the capital. Many people think Xiao Tianyao will go out the capital to pick up Lin Chujiu.
Meng Laofuren was very unhappy when she received the news. “My granddaughter need to bow down her head first, before he will pick her up? This is… … simply infuriating.”
Meng Laofuren was angry, but at the same time, she was happy for Lin Chujiu. Because at least, Xiao Tianyao was willing to pick up Lin Chujiu. Xiao Tianyao has given Lin Chujiu so much attention in the front of many people. It was enough face to Lin Chujiu.
Meng Laofuren shook her head and sighed. Knowing that she couldn’t control things. She only comforted herself by saying, "This is enough blessing for that child. She is smart, she knows what to do and what is best for herself.”
At this time, under the grape vines, Lin Chujiu was sitting and resting. She didn’t know that Xiao Tianyao had taken the “initiative” to bow down his head and visit her. But, she also didn’t know that Xiao Tianyao had brought so many people… …
