Chapter 1609: The WeddingTranslator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Respected Elder Yu Jing choked, and a moment of hesitation flashed in his eyes.
However, this was only for a moment. Soon, his expression returned to normal, and he swore firmly, “I really didn’t know!”
Rong Xiu’s smile deepened, but there was a hint of cold sarcasm. “After the clan leader fainted, you were the first to discover it. Then, you called Respected Elder Tong Chuan over. Now, the reason for the clan leader’s fainting is clear—it’s because of Respected Elder Tong Chuan. Don’t you think there’s something wrong with the timeline?”
Respected Elder Yu Jing was immediately speechless. After hesitating for a moment, he explained, “This, this—he must’ve attacked the clan leader first! Then, he pretended that nothing had happened and pushed all the responsibility away! That must be it!”
“There’s one thing you might not know. After the seal is placed, the clan leader’s body can no longer accept the outside world’s origin power. This naturally includes the origin power in the human body.”
Respected Elder Yu Jing suddenly realized something, and the rest of his words were stuck in his throat. He looked up at Rong Xiu in shock, but he only saw that the man seemed to have seen through everything.
“…Your… Your Highness…” His lips moved as if he wanted to say something more, but no sound came out.
Rong Xiu’s words were very clear.
The gazes of the surrounding people landed on Yu Jing, but at this moment, they were like knives on his back.
His mind was blank except for a voice that kept lingering. It’s over… It’s really over…
Respected Elder Yu Jing abruptly kneeled down, and his knees landed heavily on the jade bricks with a sickening thud.
He put his head to the ground and begged, “Your Highness, I admit that I listened to Respected Elder Tong Chuan’s orders and went in first to attack the clan leader! B-but I really didn’t know—”
After Baili Chun came out of seclusion this time, his strength increased greatly. Although he had suffered a blow because of Jiang Zhiyuan, his combat strength could not be underestimated.
At that time, the two of them had entered together. He had attacked first, and then Respected Elder Tong Chuan had attacked again.
At that time, Respected Elder Tong Chuan only said that it was to push all of the blame onto Rong Xiu and pull him down from the position of His Grace.
Respected Elder Yu Jing didn’t want to do this at first, but after thinking about it, he finally agreed under Respected Elder Tong Chuan’s persuasion. However, he only thought that Respected Elder Tong Chuan was doing this for the sake of the clan leader and the position of His Grace. Who would’ve thought that he was actually from Black Demon Hole?!
In the end, he was also wronged!
Rong Xiu had already turned his gaze to 36 Respected Elder Ming. “I still have to go and see the clan leader. I’ll leave these things to you to deal with.”
36 Respected Elder Ming nodded. “Don’t worry, Your Highness.”
With that, Rong Xiu walked out.
Respected Elder Yu Jing wanted to beg again, but he was deterred by a glance from 36 Respected Elder Ming and shut his mouth.
Silence filled the room.
Everyone’s gazes still subconsciously followed Rong Xiu.
At the door, Rong Xiu suddenly stopped and half-turned. Then, he raised his eyebrows and chuckled. “From today onward, you don’t have to worry about the clan leader.”
Many people’s faces alternated between red and white. In the end, they all responded and bowed respectfully. “Yes.”
After Rong Xiu left, the room was still silent for a long time.
Today’s battle was too thrilling.
Thinking about it carefully, many people felt sad. With Rong Xiu’s thoughts and methods, it would be easy for him to deal with us. To think that we were so naive to think that we could fight him… It seems that the best choice in the future is to listen to all his orders obediently…
36 Respected Elder Ming looked around and laughed. “Everyone, should we settle this score today?”
Rong Xiu walked out of the hall.
Yan Qing, who was waiting outside, hurriedly welcomed him. “Your Highness, there’s news from Yu Mo that everything is almost settled.”
Rong Xiu raised his sharp brows slightly. “He’s fast.”
“Your Highness, everything had already been set up in advance, so things were naturally finished quickly.”
Rong Xiu glanced at him and smiled. “Your acting skills have improved.”
A rare look of embarrassment appeared on Yan Qing’s cold face. “Your Highness, you flatter me. These things are all that I should do.”
Rong Xiu let him go and did not continue teasing him. Instead, he moved in the direction of Suming Peak. “Is the clan leader awake?”
“Your Highness, he isn’t.”
Rong Xiu’s expression was indifferent. It’s indeed a little troublesome to deal with the seal.”
Although he had escaped death back then, it didn’t mean that he could easily break through it.
This seal was one of Black Demon Hole’s top secret techniques, and very few people knew about it. If he wanted to resolve it completely, he would probably… have to spend some effort.
“Your Highness, the princess consort…” Yan Qing spoke hesitantly. “Since the trouble here has been resolved, we should be able to invite the princess consort back, right?”
Rong Xiu’s dark red lips curled up slightly, and his eyes softened. “After this matter is over, I’ll personally go to Godly Phoenix Mountain to pick her up.”
Previously, he pretended to be in a hurry to return to the Sky-Cloud Empire and didn’t tell her the truth. In fact, he wanted to bring her back after settling these matters.
She had already spent enough effort on the red-gold heavenly phoenix.
Yan Qing was stunned, but he quickly returned to normal and responded respectfully.
As they spoke, the two of them had already arrived at the top of Suming Peak.
Rong Xiu flew down and landed on the black jade.
The soldiers in charge of guarding bowed in unison. “Greetings, Your Grace!”
Perhaps it was an illusion, but the iron-blooded aura on their bodies seemed to be stronger than before.
Rong Xiu nodded slightly and walked toward Jishen Palace.
Yan Qing followed closely behind.
Wherever they passed, the soldiers kneeled on one knee to welcome them. They all knew that the seemingly calm Sky-Cloud Empire was about to have another storm of blood!
Rong Xiu walked to the door of Jishen Palace and suddenly stopped. “By the way, how’s the preparation for the wedding?”
Yan Qing immediately said respectfully, “Your Highness, everything is basically ready.”
They had started preparing a few years ago and had used a lot of manpower and resources. How could they not have prepared well?
Rong Xiu nodded, and there seemed to be a glint in his phoenix eyes. “When I bring her back, we can choose a good day to get married.”
