Chapter 610 – Lighting up fires and looting (4)
If he had known earlier that Su Luo would emerge so abruptly, he absolutely would not have broken off the engagement.
The Empress calmly held the blue and white porcelain teacup, the forefinger that had a long, slender fingernail carelessly pushed aside the tea leaves in the porcelain cup.
“Mother Empress, what can your son, this official, do? These three thousand green-colored crystal stones, even if you kill this son, still won’t be able to take it out! You must help your son, this official!” The Crown Prince depressedly pulled at his hair, squatting on the ground. He appeared dispirited and in a difficult situation.
If he had know earlier that this was going to happen, at that time, he would not have been so hot-headed as to bet with them.
Just betting with Su Luo was fine, but he insisted on falling down twice in the same place. The second time, he lost
again to Nangong Liuyun.
Unexpectedly, the corner of the Empress’s lips hooked into a cold smile: “It’s nothing more than one thousand five hundred green-colored crystal stones, why so worried?”
“Isn’t it three thousand, thousand….” The Crown Prince’s voice came to a stop, how did it change into one thousand five hundred pieces all of a sudden?
The Empress coldly smiled: “If the debt is not returned to the second child, then he will indeed be troublesome, so we still need to carefully consider that side. As for that loathsome girl, if she dares to demand payment from you? Ask her to come see this Empress.”
The Empress’s action was a model of picking on the pushover to pinch.
The Su Luo in her impression was still that good-for-nothing, love-struck fool, weak and daughter of a concubine at Su Manor from that time.
The Crown Prince, having heard this, he somewhat awkwardly said: “Mother Empress, there is something you don’t know, second brother treats that Su Luo extraordinarily different. He certainly will stand out to help Su Luo demand repayment of the
“What kind of vision does the second child have, how could he fancy a loathsome girl that even you don’t want?” The Empress smiled confidently, “Him treating that girl well, is merely to make you angry and nothing more.”
The Empress was very certain of this.
No matter how good Su Luo became, how much better could she have gotten? What kind of vision did Nangong Liuyun have? As long as he was not blind, he was definitely just toying with Su Luo. He was not really going to marry her to make her his princess.
“This…however, their relationship is really intimate.” The Crown Prince’s intuition felt something was amiss.
He had contact with them face-to-face, Nangong Liuyun’s pampering and spoiling of Su Luo clearly didn’t seem to be an act.
“Haha.” The Empress coldly laughed repeatedly, “Just because it is this way, is the reason your Mother Empress is so certain. Nangong Liuyun is merely toying with Su Luo and nothing more. You think about it, if he really liked someone, he would immediately marry her and bring her home. This kind of procrastination can be regarded as what sort of reasoning?”
The pitiful Empress, how could she have known that it was not Nangong Liuyun who didn’t want to marry Su Luo. Nangong Liuyun was only too eager to marry Su Luo and get her home to hide her away.
But, the problem was, Su Luo wanted to enjoy the pleasure of being chased, how could she so easily let herself be married off? The real person who did not agree to this was Su Luo.
“As for the second child’s crystals stones, Mother Empress will get your father to personally step in. Just say that this was merely a joke among brothers.” The Empress did not feel that this matter was all that troublesome.
“This way is really okay?” The Crown Prince was somewhat Prince was somewhat disbelieving, this could really be so easily resolved?
“Don’t tell me that the second child will insist on demanding these crystal stones from you? You, however, are the Crown Prince, the future master of this empire. What can Nangong Liuyun be considered compared to you?” The Empress glanced at the Crown Prince with certainty.
The Crown Prince originally was very afraid of Nangong Liuyun, but being told by the Empress of these facts, he suddenly felt that there was nothing about Nangong Liuyun to be afraid of.
What Mother Empress said was not wrong, in the future, this entire empire will be his. Why would Nangong Liuyun even dare to ask him for the crystal stones?
The Empress coldly shot the Crown Prince a glance: “You ah, just don’t have enough self-confidence. Also, you are not too tough, so often would always be pressed down by Nangong Liuyun’s imposing manner. In the future, you must remember, in front of Nangong Liuyun, you must keep your head high and chest out for me!”
