Chapter 620 – Nangong flipped out (3)
The Empress’s mouth hooked into a having-prevailed smile: “If you can tear up that loan receipt, then this Empress promises to use all her strength to help you destroy that engagement.”
“You don’t believe me?” The Empress saw Su Luo did not speak and she gave a cold humph.
“I believe you.” Su Luo said faintly.
The Empress naturally did not want Nangong Liuyun to marry someone from the Jade Lake’s Li family. Because, if that were to happen, with the support of the Jade Lake’s Li family, then what could the Crown Prince bring to the fight when he was already at a disadvantage from before?
Therefore, even if Su Luo didn’t make the promise, the Empress would use every means to destroy this marriage. Now, the Empress saying this to her was merely to bully her. figuring she didn’t know the critical point within.
Su Luo was silent.
She was silent not because of the Empress’s words, rather, she was observing a moment of silence for Emperor Jing.
If he really dared to draw up the engagement contract with the Jade Lake’s fairy on Nangong Liuyun’s behalf without asking him, what kind of stuff would Nangong Liuyun do? She was convinced that when the time came, the pressure on Emperor Jing would be huge.
The Empress saw that Su Luo was silent, and believed this matter was in the bag. The smiling expression at the corner of her mouth became increasingly more self-satisfied.
“Bring it over.” The Empress extended a white, jade-like hand towards Su Luo.
“Bring what?” Su Luo pretended, with her entire face looking confused.
“Su Luo, don’t pretend to be naive, you need this Empress’s assistance, otherwise, His Highness Prince Jin will definitely marry Li Yaoyao.” The Empress blunty said everything, leaving it out in the open, “Therefore, bring me that loan receipt.”
All of a sudden, Su Luo smiled, her smile was splendid like a blooming flower: “Empress, Our Mother, in your eyes, am I just that stupid?”
“You…what did you say?” The Empress stared at that splendid smile on Su Luo’s face in astonishment. These words spoken by Su Luo made the Empress’s eyes momentarily contract.
“Empress, Our Mother, if the Jade Lake’s fairy were to marry Nangong Liuyun, the Jade Lake palace would use their full strength to support Nangong Liuyun. When that time comes, then the Crown Prince wouldn’t have a thread of opportunity. Once the Crown Prince loses all his influences and power, then presumably, Empress, Our Mother’s, days, would also not be so good.”
Su Luo smilingly looked at the Empress, with every word she spoke, the Empress’s complexion would become paler.
“Therefore, the person that wants the most to block Nangong Liuyun’s marriage to the Jade Lake’s fairy is you, the Empress. Why should I be worried?” Su Luo spread out her hands, smiling innocently.
The fury on the Empress’s face grew without restraint.
She never expected that this loathsome girl was not incited by her into disharmony, and also wasn’t poisoned by her words. In the end, she actually reversed the words and checkmated her!
The Empress’s chest moved up and down violently, “You are a loathsome girl that doesn’t know what is good for you! Nangong Liuyun is willing to protect you, but can he protect Su Manor? You are forcing the entire Su Manor into hell!”
Su Luo again shouted out loud in astonishment. “Empress, Our Mother, even if you loathe me, you also shouldn’t move against Su Manor ah!”
This voice was simply earth-shattering, resonating to the skies.
Not only the people nearby in the Imperial Study could hear it clearly, even those maids and court eunuchs in the far distance could hear every word.
The Empress was so infuriated that her face flushed red!
When she was married, she was already hig
h above as the first wife. After becoming the Empress, she again was one person above everyone. Never had there been anyone who dared to contradict her like this.
The Empress, utterly discomfited, grabbed the official blue and white porcelain teacup by her hand, swung her arms and directly tossed it at Su Luo——
When that teacup was a hand’s width away from Su Luo, Su Luo very rudely sat her butt on the ground, evading the attack of the teacup.
Su Luo had already made preparation for when the Empress would act out violently, therefore, her reaction was very fast.
At the same time, Nangong Liuyun’s figure had already appeared.
One could only see his sleeves raise slightly, a burst of wind unfurling.
“Bang——” that teacup did not end up on the ground, rather, it was spun around by Nangong Liuyun’s wide and long sleeves. It directly shot towards the Empress’s forehead!
Chapter 621 – Nangong flipped out (4)
“Nangong Liuyun, you dare!!!” The Crown Prince angrily shouted, but it was already too late to block the teacup’s path.
Following right behind Nangong Liuyun was Emperor Jing and the Crown Prince.
Emperor Jing’s expression right now was very complicated.
He never expected that this unfilial son had become so daring to this degree!
That was the Empress ah, this nation’s mother, the ceremonial mother of all under the heavens, the Empress ah!
In a public place with numerous people and under their gazes, he would actually directly…this was the great crime of matricide!
Not to mention Emperor Jing’s incomparable shock, just speaking of that teacup alone, that was being treated like a ball, slapped back and forth.
One could only see the teacup on a straight line path, shooting towards the Empress with a speed that was too fast to block or dodge.
The Empress’s heart was greatly alarmed!
She glanced towards Su Luo, immediately, a bright idea flashed by. With a ‘bang’ sound, she sat heavily on the ground.
Even though the two people made the exact same move, but the difference with the inside trick was still too great.
Su Luo was already a martial artist at the peak of the fourth rank, her body had reached an astonishing degree of toughness and flexibility. How could an insignificant fake fall be a problem?
But it was not the same for the Empress!
Even though the Empress’s talent before was pretty good, but these years, she was busy with the inner fights in the Imperial palace and living like a princess. Where would she find the time to cultivate?
In addition, the teacup smashing towards her had came from the hand of an infuriated Prince Jin!
One could only hear the Empress, with a difficult movement, falling from a high position to the ground, barely avoiding that approaching teacup with a murderous aura.
But the strong wind of the teacup swept past her head.
“Ouch——” The Empress, who sat heavily down on the ground, gave a loud cry of pain.
The teacup swept by the Empress’s coiled hair, and immediately, the Empress’s beautifully coiffured hair was messed up. The phoenix and gold hairpins made crashing sounds as they fell. The Empress with disheveled hair cut a very sorry figure.
The Crown Prince hurriedly rushed over and sank to his knees to help the Empress, anxiously saying: “Mother Empress, are you okay? Is anything wrong?”
The Empress, in a panicked state, had her eyes opened bewilderedly and indertermindly. She held her chest with lingering fear…too frightening, simply too scary….
The Crown Prince, seeing that the Empress was unscathed, only then did he turn around. He pointed at Nangong Liuyun with a malevolent expression and angrily roared. “ You dare to murder Mother Empress! Nangong Liuyun, don’t think that because your martial arts are so strong you are extraordinary! If you murdered Mother Empress, you would meet the wrath of the heavens!”
“Father Emperor, Nangong Liuyun intended to kill Mother Empress, I hope Father Emperor will give her justice!”
The Crown Prince’s angry outburst aroused Emperor Jing from his shock.
Now the expression Emperor Jing looked at Nangong Liuyun with was very complicated.
Only until just a moment ago, when he moved against the Empress without the slightest hesitation, had he suddenly come to realize that this second child was no longer that child who back then, had sought his protection. The Nangong Liuyun right now was not someone he could control.
“Father Emperor! Father Emperor!” The Crown Prince cried out loudly towards Emperor Jing.
Emperor Jing waved his hands toward him, but his gaze unblinkingly stared at Nangong Liuyun: “We, the Emperor, will give you a chance to explain.”
“Explain?” Nangong Liuyun smiled, his smile was cruel, noble and untamed, carrying a touch of disdain, “What does Father Emperor want this official to explain?”
“Just now, you tried to kill the Empress, still dare to deny it?” The Emperor, panting with rage, bellowed at him.
This was him, the Emperor, protecting him, giving him a chance to explain. He actually returned it to question him?
Nangong Liuyun was really too brazen, too used to doing whatever he pleased! That was the Empress! Could it be that he didn’t even know the basic filial obedience? The more Emperor Jing thought, the more furious he became.
“That Empress wants to murder this king’s little princess as she wishes, what kind of crime should that be?” The corner of Nangong Liuyun’s mouth lifted into a smiling expression, but his eyes were ice-cold, lacking any temperature.
Deep and eerie, strange and extremely cold, no one dared to look straight at that gaze.
