Chapter 1604: Explicitly StateTranslator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
“The few venerables can come in together.” As Rong Xiu spoke, his sleeves moved, and the door opened with a sound.
When Rong Xiu walked to the door, he stopped in his tracks and turned around in a seemingly smiling manner. “If anyone has suspicions, you can come along as well.”
The crowd behind exchanged glances, and the atmosphere was rather awkward.
At Tongshen Palace previously, the crowd was dumbfounded by Rong Xiu’s continuous questioning and interrogation. Then, Rong Xiu suggested that he come over to check himself.
At this point, he clearly said this to target them.
Isn’t this clearly mocking us for suspecting and questioning him?
36 Respected Elder Ming went over first and laughed. “It’s better if everyone comes in and watches! We have strength in numbers! Perhaps we really missed something out previously, and we can rely on everyone’s help to find some clues.”
Respected Elder Tong Chuan’s face darkened, and he immediately went over. Then, it was Respected Elder Yu Jing and the others.
All the family heads hesitated for a moment. Seeing that Rong Xiu and the others’ figures were about to disappear gradually, they felt uneasy as well. In the end, they clenched their teeth and followed in.
Baili Chun was the clan leader. His residence was naturally lavish and extravagant.
Rong Xiu walked all the way into Baili Chun’s bedroom.
Actually, at Baili Chun’s cultivation level, staying awake for a month wouldn’t have much of an impact on him. Hence, even though this was known as his bedroom, he spent most of his time cultivating here.
Rong Xiu walked in and first sized up the surroundings.
The outside was already very extravagant, but the inside was on another level.
When the few family heads entered, they couldn’t help gasping.
Other than Baili Chun, usually nobody else had the right to enter this place. This was their first time seeing this scene, and they couldn’t help but be shocked.
Respected Elder Tong Chuan turned around and stared at the few of them in dissatisfaction, causing the few of them to fall silent and not dare to let out another sound.
But at this point, Rong Xiu suddenly laughed. “Clan Leader’s room is very big, and there are two side rooms as well. Everyone, let’s split up and search around. You must search carefully, and you don’t have to restrain yourself because this is the clan leader’s bedroom. You have to know that finding clues and revealing the truth is the most important for the clan leader.”
The crowd didn’t dare to ignore him and nodded. “Yes, Your Grace.”
Respected Elder Tong Chuan’s lips moved. However, he did not say anything and just looked at Respected Yu Jing.
Rong Xiu stood rooted to the ground for a while before walking forward.
Just when the crowd thought that he was going to start searching for clues, they suddenly saw him sitting next to a chair by the window.
The crowd stopped in their actions.
Rong Xiu raised his sharp brows slightly. “You can do your own things.”
The crowd did not dare to speak further and continued searching around.
Rong Xiu just sat there motionless like a mountain, and there seemed to be leisurely intent in his eyes. Then, he looked up slightly at Respected Elder Yu Jing and Respected Elder Tong Chuan.
His thin lips curled up. “Venerables, why aren’t you searching?”
This stumped the two of them.
His tone was too high and mighty, and he simply treated them as slaves! It made them displeased!
Respected Elder Tong Chuan paused and asked, “Your Grace, are you not going to look around yourself?”
Rong Xiu acknowledged this, and the smile on his face deepened slightly. “I’ve been handling quite a few matters lately, so I’m quite tired and plan to rest. Besides, the venerables and the family heads are here, so I’m very assured.”
Respected Elder Tong Chuan felt that his blood was about to rush up his head! Rong Xiu has really become addicted to commanding us!
He clenched his teeth and quickly acknowledged it before walking in another direction.
Respected Elder Yu Jing didn’t dare to speak further and went in another direction.
Hence, in the entire space, only Rong Xiu was sitting down and resting while the others were searching effortfully.
After about an hour or so, the crowd stopped.
“Your Highness, I didn’t find anything.”
“Your Highness, there’s nothing on our side as well.”
“It seems like there’s nothing strange…”
Everyone present had distinguished statuses in the Sky-Cloud Empire. After they cooperated and searched around, they still couldn’t find anything, and it seemed like there was no evidence.
Rong Xiu looked down slightly and didn’t speak as if in deep thought.
Respected Elder Tong Chuan walked over and cupped his fists. “Your Highness, we have tried our best to search, but we really didn’t find anything.”
His tone went back to his usual nonchalance and arrogance. Only his eyes had a hint of mockery that was hard to discover. Search? Of course, there’s nothing to find here.
Rong Xiu brought so many people over, but he wasted everyone’s time. Does he really think that he can successfully do whatever he wants because he is His Grace? With this commotion, those people below will be even more dissatisfied with him.
On the surface, it seems like Rong Xiu already holds great power in the Sky-Cloud Empire. But in actual fact, he only controls the group of soldiers he brought up himself.
These divisions seemed like they respected him greatly on the surface, but in actual fact…
Rong Xiu was young when he ascended the throne. When he came of age, he suddenly left for a few years. During this period of time, the booklets in the Sky-Cloud Empire were approved by me, Tong Chuan.
This time, Rong Xiu came back and snatched this power back less than a year ago. It’s a huge question as to how much power he has!
Rong Xiu still didn’t speak.
Respected Elder Tong Chuan knitted his brows in annoyance. “His Highness?”
A roar suddenly came from afar! Then, a totally snow-white, fit figure jumped in from the windows—it was Xue Xue!
The crowd was stunned by this sudden scene. When they saw Xue Xue’s current appearance, they were taken aback.
Xue Xue’s body had pockets of bloodstains, and its face had been scraped by something. Its muscles were exposed, and a bloody smell permeated the air.
They all knew that Rong Xiu’s legendary fiend was extremely strong and rarely failed, let alone end up in such a miserable state.
I wonder what it has experienced—
Besides, it seems to be biting on something in its mouth.
Rong Xiu stood up and stroked Xue Xue’s forehead. “It’s been hard on you.”
Xue Xue shook its head and spat out the item in its mouth.
A wooden token fell to the floor.
Respected Elder Tong Chuan’s expression changed drastically!
