Following the departure of that deterrence pressure, only then was Emperor Jing able to slowly gasp for air. He supported himself by holding onto a pillar, and shakingly stood up.
The crown prince and the empress were still collapsed on the ground. It was not that they didn't want to get up, rather, at this moment, the last thread of strength in their body was used up. They were weaker than even an infant, how could they get up?
Emperor Jing, seeing Nangong Liuyun still sitting there, calm and composed as before, a deeply complicated expression appeared in his eyes.
At this moment, Nangong Liuyun seemed so unfamiliar that even he, this father, didn't recognize him.
At this moment, Emperor Jing seemed to recall that year when the very young Nangong Liuyun caused the bitter scene of the massacre in
the imperial capital.
Emperor Jing smiled self-mockingly.
At that time, the nearly five years old Nangong Liuyun was already so strong. How could the him right now listen to his instructions to handle matters? He really had sat on this position of the emperor for too long a time and was used to the ease and comfort. He couldn't even clearly see this principle.
"Father Emperor……" The crown prince, half-lying down on the ground, roared unwillingly in his heart. That kneel just now ruthlessly ripped apart his last thread of dignity, letting Nangong Liuyun trample it. Now, after he had gotten his life back, the crown prince immediately became upset.
Emperor Jing waved his hands and said to Nangong Liuyun: "Whatever you like to do, then go do it."
Emperor Jing's voice revealed an endless downheartedness. The matter just now, really gave him lingering fear. It was as if he had woken up from a dream, Nangong Liuyun had grown to the stage that even
even he had to look up to. If he was still delusionally wanting to control him, that was absolutely impossible.
The corner of Nangong Liuyun's mouth pulled slightly: "Now you finally see it clearly? It can't be regarded as too late."
Emperor Jing smiled bitterly.
If it wasn't for this thunderous attack by Nangong Liuyun, perhaps he would still be immersed in a dream, unable to see reality clearly. The reality was, compared to Su Luo, that loathsome girl, he, this father, wasn't even worth a fart!
In fact, Emperor Jing knew, the problem lies with him. If back then, he was able to protect Nangong's mother. If at that time, after Nangong's massacre in the
in the imperial capital, he could protect the very young Nangong……Now, he wouldn't be like this to this father emperor either……Disdainful.
Emperor Jing, thinking of this, suddenly felt as if his heart was pierced by a snow sword, it hurt to the point he was seeing stars.
"You guys go back." Emperor Jing waved his hands.
Nangong Liuyun stood up and indifferently pulled up the corner of his mouth: "Leave me a place for the four countries' power struggle competition."
"Your place has always been kept for you, the other nine people are already in place, if you have time……" After seeing the situation clearly, Emperor Jing's tone was unprecedentedly mild.
But Nangong Liuyun icily and arrogantly interrupted his words: "There aren't nine people."
"Eh?" Emperor Jing didn't understand.
"There is only eight people." Nangong Liuyun lifted up Su Luo's hand, his tone not allowing any dispute, "Luo Luo will also compete."
"But……" Emperor Jing immediately frowned. Those nine people, every one of them were all above were all above the sixth rank, they were the secret power that the Nangong family had hidden for a long time, but wasn't Su Luo only at the fifth rank?
Emperor Jing tried to reason with Nangong Liuyun: "This time's four countries' power struggle competition, everyone's strength is above the sixth rank. She is only at the fifth rank, at that time, she won't even make it through the first round."
"You don't need to be concerned about it." Nangong Liuyun's good-looking eyebrows pursed.
Emperor Jing indignantly gave a heavy snort. He knew perfectly she would lose and to even waste a place, this son seriously was possessed!
Nangong Liuyun didn't give him the chance to refuse, he led Su Luo by her hand and unhurriedly left.
Following their departure, the atmosphere immediately loosened.
"Father Emperor……" The crown prince almost cried. Just now, he returned from the gates of hell, and only now did he feel he was alive.’
