Chapter 660: Wedding Day

The duo looked up in unison and saw that it was Jiang Yucheng.

The latter walked over with a slight smile on his face. “Wan’er, I was just about to go into the palace to see you and discuss our wedding affairs when you came.”

Hearing this, Shangguan Wan felt that he was sweet and that he looked much better.

As Jiang Yucheng sat down beside the duo, he seemingly said nonchalantly, “Why didn’t you tell me earlier? You came here, but there was actually nobody in the mansion who went to serve you. We really didn’t treat you well.”

“It’s fine. I just suddenly felt like coming, so I brought Chan Yi along. Besides, isn’t Yuzhi accompanying me?” said Shangguan Wan with a smile.

“Oh?” Jiang Yucheng glanced at Jiang Yuzhi. “What were you guys talking about just now?”

His gaze slowly swept across Jiang Yuzhi, which instantly made her feel guilty. She lowered her head and muttered, “N-nothing much…”

“She said that she hasn’t been out of the residence during this period of time and doesn’t know what interesting things have been going on outside. Hence, she wanted me to tell her about this.” Shangguan Wan silently continued and glared at Jiang Yucheng in seeming anger. “She’s your sister after all. How can you just lock her inside the mansion? Look at how wronged she is! Why don’t you let her off this time?”

Jiang Yuzhi secretly gave her a thankful glance.

“This…” Jiang Yucheng glanced at the duo and laughed. “Wan’er, since you personally put in a word for her, there’s no reason why I would decline. Yuzhi, I won’t ground you any longer from now onward.”

Jiang Yuzhi looked up in surprise.

“But you must remember whatever I instructed you earlier. If you don’t do it… Nobody can help you.”

“I know! Thank you, Brother! Thank you, Third Princess!” Jiang Yuzhi had long been spoiled rotten, and she came out today just to request this from her brother. She didn’t expect the deal to be sealed before she even spoke.

How could she not be happy? At that moment, she directly treated Shangguan Wan as her benefactor.

Jiang Yucheng smiled and handed his Cosmic Ring over. “I know that you wanted to go out long ago. Take this, and you can buy whatever you want today. However, you must bring Uncle Fu with you.”

Uncle Fu was an experienced one in the Jiang Residence, and he was also an advanced stage-seven warrior. With him around, he could protect Jiang Yuzhi.

Jiang Yuzhi squealed excitedly as she hurriedly snatched the Cosmic Ring over. It was as though she was afraid that Jiang Yucheng would change his mind.

She quickly said, “I know! Thanks, Brother!”

Before she could even finish her sentence, she had already run out. “Uncle Fu! Uncle Fu, let’s go!”

When Jiang Yuzhi disappeared from his field of vision, Jiang Yucheng heaved a sigh of relief. He then looked toward Shangguan Wan. “Wan’er, you came here today—”

He didn’t believe that Shangguan Wan really came here on impulse.

Shangguan Wan stared at him for quite a while before picking a few parts of whatever Zuo Mingxi said today and told him about it.

The more she said, the colder Jiang Yucheng’s face got.

“…It was roughly like this, but Physician Zuo is only slightly suspicious now. However, he doesn’t have much evidence. I thought about it for some time and felt that I needed to discuss this with you,” said Shangguan Wan as she judged Jiang Yucheng’s expression. It seems like… He has nothing to do with this…

In her heart, she was also reluctant to suspect Jiang Yucheng. But she had no choice, so she could only test him out. Now, it seems like I was overthinking. But if this has nothing to do with him, who could it be?

Jiang Yucheng furrowed his brows tightly. “Only the same few people keep going in and out of Qingfeng Palace. Could it really be that one of them did something which made His Majesty…”

He stood up in frustration and kept pacing back and forth as he kept thinking about who could possibly have the chance to attack.

Actually, he had long felt that something was amiss, but he just didn’t know where the problem lay. According to what Zuo Mingxi said, perhaps… I should really start to investigate now!

“What about the other two heavenly doctors? What did they say?”

Shangguan Wan helplessly said, “I haven’t asked them yet. It’s Physician Zuo’s shift today, so the other two haven’t entered the palace yet.”

Jiang Yucheng boomed, “Since Physician Zuo could detect the issue, the other two should be able to as well. However, they haven’t made a move so far or stated their stance…”

“You’re saying that the two of them might’ve done it?” Shangguan Wan was dazed for a while and immediately rejected the thought. “Impossible. I meticulously picked those two people out, and they have followed me for many years. It’s impossible that they will betray—”

“When has betrayal never existed in this world?” said Jiang Yucheng lightly with a dark expression.

Shangguan Wan seemed to be attacked by something, and her expression changed slightly.

The atmosphere between the duo froze for a moment before Shangguan Wan said, “Then… We have to check on this later.”

Jiang Yucheng nodded. “This matter is serious. You must be careful.”

Shangguan Wan seemed to have thought of something and didn’t continue.

Jiang Yucheng calculated the time in his heart. I still have to deal with the remaining half…


“Yucheng, quite a few ministers have been rushing us to settle the wedding date in court. What do you think?” Shangguan Wan recovered her senses, and her first sentence stunned Jiang Yucheng.

“What? Why did they suddenly start to rush us? Didn’t we agree that it would be in these few months?”

“They’re rushing us to settle the specific date. Even though we already have a marriage agreement, we haven’t settled the wedding date yet. They’re naturally anxious about it. Also, they didn’t suddenly rush us. It has already been a while, but… You just didn’t care about it.” Shangguan Wan’s voice had a touch of dissatisfaction. Every time I bring up the issue of settling the wedding date, Jiang Yucheng always delays it and asks me to wait and wait again. At first, he said it was because Shangguan Yue just died and that we couldn’t get together too quickly. But she’s almost been dead for two years now, and it’s almost the time taken to observe one’s filial piety. I’m the one in control of the Tianling Dynasty now. Do I really need to consider a dead person before I get married or not?

Besides, it has already been more than half a year since Jiang Yucheng and I had our marriage agreement, but we haven’t even settled our wedding date. Every time I think about it, I feel very uncomfortable.

Jiang Yucheng immediately went forward, pulled her hands, and patiently advised, “Wan’er, it’s not that I don’t care. It’s clear that I care too much, and that’s why I’m so careful! We’ve just stabilized our foundation… The most important thing is that… His Majesty hasn’t woken up yet…”

“If Father doesn’t wake up for the rest of his life, are we not going to marry then?” said Shangguan Wan angrily.

Jiang Yucheng was stumped.

“According to the Tianling Dynasty’s rules, only someone who is married can officially ascend the throne. Our wedding day is also the day I’ll ascend the throne. Even though I am in power now, I’m still a Third Princess after all. As long as we don’t get married, I won’t be legitimate!” Shangguan Wan stared at Jiang Yucheng and said every word clearly: “I don’t plan to wait any longer!”
