Chapter 859: Date Someone
Shangguan Wan’s heart suddenly trembled.
Chu Liuyue’s words were like thunder that struck next to her ear!
She immediately felt guilty and looked at Chu Liuyue doubtfully. Could her words… have another meaning?
However, Chu Liuyue’s eyes curved up as if she didn’t mean anything else.
Shangguan Wan seemed to be stifled, and she couldn’t breathe properly. “You just have to say whether you’re giving the blood or not!”
Chu Liuyue smiled and said, “If you want it, how can I not give it to you, Third Princess? Tuan Zi—”
She turned around and looked at Tuan Zi nestled on her shoulders. It had already curled up into a ball as it tilted its head and looked very disdainful.
Not to say that this blood was very precious to it, even if it was something it didn’t want, it wasn’t willing to give it to that Shangguan Wan!
Chu Liuyue coaxed Tuan ZI at the side before it reluctantly presented a blood pearl.
Shangguan Wan’s eyes lit up.
That blood pearl floated in Chu Liuyue’s palm as she said, “Third Princess, it’s not impossible if you want it. However… you have to exchange it with something of equal value.”
After so much, this Chu Liuyue just wants something. Shangguan Wan chuckled in contempt. “What do you want?”
Chu Liuyue curled her lips slightly. “What do I want… I’ll tell you tomorrow. I hope you won’t be stingy by that time.”
Shangguan Wan knitted her brows slightly. “Tomorrow is my wedding. I don’t have time to bother with you then.”
Something seemed to flash across Chu Liuyue’s eyes. “That’s something I have to think about.”
Shangguan Wan didn’t care about the other girl. I have many things to do during the ceremony tomorrow. A mere Chu Liuyue wouldn’t even have the right to speak to me then. I have nothing much to worry about.
“I’ll agree to your request!”
Chu Liuyue then smiled and nodded as she flicked her finger. Then, the blood pearl flew toward Shangguan Wan.
“Since this is so, then… I’ll first wish for your blissful marriage, and I hope you’ll be happy with Eldest Young Master Jiang for hundreds of years to come.” With that, Chu Liuyue didn’t stay any longer as she turned around to leave.
Shangguan Wan hurriedly caught the blood pearl and swallowed it directly.
At that moment, there seemed to be a fire burning in her chest!
Shangguan Wan hurriedly took off the mask, and an itchy and numbing feeling spread from her wound. Her entire body seemed to be wrapped by fire—it was scorching and painful!
Shangguan Wan clenched her teeth tightly as she forcefully swallowed this torture down! As long as my looks can go back to normal… This doesn’t count for anything!
After leaving Qingfeng Palace, Chu Liuyue walked relaxingly.
Tuan Zi had already returned to her body.
“You acted quite well,” praised Chu Liuyue in her heart.
Tuan Zi flapped its wings and looked delighted.
Upon seeing this reaction, Chu Liuyue felt emotional. She then turned around to take a look and could only see the roof of the palace from here. At this point, Shangguan Wan should’ve already ingested that ‘blood of a legendary fiend’ excitedly, right? I wonder if Shangguan Wan will be satisfied with this small gift.
After a momentary pause, Chu Liuyue continued forward. When she passed by a road, she turned and walked in another direction.
The palace maid behind her hurriedly said, “Ms. Chu, you can’t go there!”
Chu Liuyue paused in her tracks and suddenly looked enlightened. “Look at me! I went the wrong way.”
After that, she turned around and walked in another direction.
The palace maid hurriedly laughed along. “You haven’t been to the palace much, so it’s normal for you not to know your way. In the future, you must be careful and not walk toward that area!”
Chu Liuyue entered the palace to present the medicine to treat His Majesty, and the news had already silently spread throughout the palace. Everyone was guessing that without any accidents, this person would definitely be capable in the future, so they all fought to flatter her.
Chu Liuyue smiled and seemingly asked nonchalantly, “Oh? Why is that so?”
That palace maid looked conflicted but still lowered her voice and softly said, “That’s the royal family’s ancestral hall. It was burned down two years ago, and it has just been renovated. Normal people can’t enter!”
Chu Liuyue nodded in understanding. “I see… Thank you.”
The palace maid was shocked and kept refusing Chu Liuyue’s thanks as she kept telling the latter about all sorts of rules in the palace and some information here and there on the way.
Chu Liuyue heard it and gradually realized that Shangguan Wan seemed to be extra concerned about the burned ancestral hall. From a certain angle, she was even stricter about it than guarding the Emperor.
When I chose to burn myself to death, the ancestral hall should’ve been burned quite badly. With that, not much evidence would be left behind. What exactly is Shangguan Wan afraid of?
After Jiang Yucheng left the palace, he directly went back to the Jiang Residence. But even at this point, the anger in his heart hadn’t subsided.
Thinking of how unreasonable Shangguan Wan was, he felt frustrated. What annoyed him even more was that when Chu Liuyue heard the two of them arguing, she looked very nonchalant.
She was like an outsider calmly watching a show that had nothing to do with her. From start to end, she didn’t look at him once more or even have a change in expression.
Jiang Yucheng pressed his chest. For some reason, his chest felt stuffed when he thought of these things.
Then, he closed his eyes as if he had made up his mind and said to Sun Qi behind him, “Invite Chu Liuyue to the zither room in Xin Li Garden.”
“Eldest Young Master, you—” Sun Qi was dazed. Tomorrow is his wedding with the Third Princess! What exactly does Eldest Young Master want to do by making an appointment with Chu Liuyue now?! And… It’s even in the zither room in Thousand View Garden!
Jiang Yucheng glanced at him coldly.
Sun Qi immediately said, “I’ll go right away!”
