“What?” Chu Ning was shocked . “Fourth Princess has bodyguards, so how can something like this happen?”
Ji Qingfeng shook his head . “All of this is not clear . It’s just that the river current beneath the cliff is fast flowing, and it’s been an hour since she disappeared . She has not been found yet! His Majesty is very upset . He has sent the imperial guards to go search for Fourth Princess . I’m here to ask you to join…”
Chu Ning nodded quickly . “Let’s go!” He was the Commander in Chief . He had to be there during times like this . He had just taken a step when he suddenly remembered Chu Liuyue . He turned to look at his daughter guiltily . “Yue’er…”
“Fourth Princess’s matters are more important . You should hurry and leave, Father . ”
“But…” Chu Ning was a little hesitant .
“I’ll look after things here . Lord Chu Ning need not worry . Father has always doted on Fourth Princess, so please put your best foot forward for the matter . ” Rong Xiu’s words put Chu Ning’s mind at ease .
“If that’s the case, thank you for the trouble, Prince Li . ” With that, Chu Ning and Ji Qingfeng quickly left together .
As the two of them stepped out of the room, Yan Ge sprung out of his seat . “Prince Li, Ms . Liuyue, Fourth Princess disappeared at Zhen Bao Pavilion’s hunting ground . I’m afraid I’ll have to hurry back as well . ”
Chu Liuyue understood, and she nodded . “This matter is important . Second Master Yan should hurry back as soon as you can . ”
No matter what, the incident happened on their grounds . Thus, they were partly responsible for it .
Yan Ge shot a quick glance at Rong Xiu, and he cupped his fists . “I’ll take my leave first . I hope that Ms . Liuyue will understand . ”
“Second Master Yan is a busy man . Liuyue is grateful that you could join us today . ” Chu Liuyue shook her head . “I’ll send you off…”
“No need! There are a lot of guests today, and Lord Chu Ning has just left . You have a lot of things to do, so I won’t trouble you! I’ll be taking my leave!” With that, Yan Ge quickly left without looking back .
Yan Qing, who was standing at the door, looked at Yan Ge with sympathy as he fled . What does Fourth Princess’s disappearance count as?
This fellow was probably traumatized from taking a seat earlier… His heart probably wouldn’t have been able to take it if he stayed any longer .
The rather lively room only had Rong Xiu and Chu Liuyue left .
Rong Xiu rubbed his cup, with worry between his brows .
“I heard that the hunting ground’s terrain is rather dangerous . This time… Fourth Princess is in danger . ” Chu Liuyue looked at him . “Your Highness, Fourth Princess is in an accident . Are you not going to take a look?”
Rong Xiu drank the cup of alcohol slowly, and the fragrance of alcohol spread across the room . “Father has already sent the imperial guards to search for her . My presence would only create problems, so I might as well wait here,” he said plainly .
Chu Liuyue raised her brows . “Here?”
Rong Xiu tapped on the sides of the cup as he looked at Chu Liuyue . “I seem to have left something at your place . I’ll pick it up when all this is over . ”
Chu Liuyue instinctively wanted to reject it . “There’s no need for so much trouble . Why don’t I go back and get it for you now?”
Rong Xiu paused and looked at her with a wry smile . “You want everyone here to know that my clothes are at your place?”
Chu Liuyue: “… But it’s even more inappropriate for Your Highness to go to my place, right?”
Rong Xiu looked into her eyes, seemingly smiling, and nonchalantly said, “No one will see if I go at night . ”
Chu Liuyue was speechless . Shameless!
After both Chu Ning and the imperial guards were deployed, many people felt that something was wrong and sent people to investigate .
Many knew that the Fourth Princess was at the hunting ground today . Besides, given the gravity of the situation, it couldn’t be kept under wraps .
The news spread quickly .
Everyone was stunned .
Hunting grounds were rather dangerous, but the Fourth Princess has bodyguards . How did something so serious happen?
Besides, if they were right, the hunting ground the Fourth Princess went to seemed to be the one that Zhen Bao Pavilion bought from Chu Liuyue a while back?
If anything happened to the Fourth Princess, a lot of people were going to be implicated!
A lot of people connected the dots, and some even got up and left .
Chu Liuyue knew what they were thinking . They were just fence-sitters . She was not bothered and sent them off .
When she passed by the room that Si Yang and the others were in, she saw that they were all standing at the door .
“You all are leaving too?” Chu Liuyue asked .
“Forget about that . How can you still have the time to think about this now?” Si Yang hurried forward . “Do you know that the hunting ground where the accident occurred is…”
“I know . ”
“Why are you still so calm then? Aren’t you afraid that His Majesty will blame you for this?”
Si Yang was not the only one who was worried . The others were rather worried as well, believing that the matter was rather troublesome .
“That hunting ground does not have much to do with me . Besides, Fourth Princess is the one who insisted on going there to hunt for high-level fiends . I don’t think anyone else is to blame for it, right?”
Si Yang and the others paused .
That seems to make sense, but something seems off…
“But that’s the Fourth Princess…”
Chu Liuyue smiled . Rong Jin can’t even do anything after he was taken advantage of, not to mention Rong Zhen, who is asking for it .
“Fourth Princess is blessed and protected by His Majesty’s blessings . She’ll be fine, so let’s just wait patiently .
Si Yang and the others looked at each other and nodded .
The news came in the evening .
Fourth Princess Rong Zhen fell off the cliff and broke both her legs . Since she was attacked by a mysterious high-level fiend and did not receive treatment on time, her pearl of essence was destroyed, and she was handicapped .
