The reason why Ye Lang had issued these questions was not to make things difficult hoewever he pleased, but it was that he had felt that it is better to be a little perverted when being the emperor, after all, this wasn't a position that the ordinary citizen could attain.
Being a perverted person did not actually mean that they couldn't be a good emperor!
However, of the people that were here, there were quite a bit whose hearts had motes of perversion. Those that were normally rarely found, those that were extremely perverted were actually quite a few here, the facts had confirmed this, there were many who answered 5 questions correctly, and there were even people who answered 10 and above questions correctly.
But even with this, Ye Lang hadn't imagined there even existed a person that could answer all the questions correctly, and it was also a young girl that had the appearance of an angel!
Those who are just a bit twisted were suited to become the emperor, but when it's to this extent, then it wouldn't be suitable anymore. These type of people, it could be said that it would be akin to making the empire become a hell on earth!
Because of that, Ye Lang himself had placed it1 out of successor range!
As to why Ye Lang didn't bluntly say that these questions were psychological ones, it wasn't that he didn't want to, but there was not much use. This world didn't have this kind of concept. Even if he had said it, others would not understand it, and thus it would not serve as any kind of proof.
"For these types of questions, the lesser questions answered correctly would be better. For commoners, the best would be zero, but for you guys, it would be better if you had a bit more, but answering all the questions correctly… Forget it, I don't know how to say it, this is a situation that I've never had. Okay, you guys can solve these matters yourselves, I can't clear it up." Ye Lang shook his head with a profound manner and slowly walked out of the audience hall2.
"Little brother, since you've walked so far away already, what's there to pretend?" Ye Lan Yu said to Ye Lang, that was still keeping up an appearance, and ruthlessly knocked him once.
"Ah! We're far away ah, then let's hasten our steps, they might look for us again to ask who knows what again." Ye Lang was indeed acting it, but he had done this to avoid pointless troubles.
"If I had know earlier that it would end up like this, I would have not given those type of questions, who knew that there would be such a scary woman…"
"Little brother, what on earth did you test for?" Ye Lan Yu inevitably curiously asked.
"A person's psyche……"
"Even if I tell you, you won't understand it, you're just so dumb!"
"Are you asking for a spanking? You actually dared to call me stupid!"
"Then you are……" Ye Lang wanted to continue saying, but when he saw Ye Lan Yu's small fist swaying in front of him, he had intelligently stopped.
"Just watch and see, if that woman isn't eliminated, this palace will have a carnage sooner or later. I hope that it won't involve me me." Ye Lang said whilst thinking about it.
He could guess this outcome, but he didn't really care about it, because this matter was the internal affair of the imperial household. Who the Emperor was didn't really affect him much, and it was the same for the Ye Family.
Furthermore, he felt that Zhao Ya Rou was still young now, and the emperor was still in good health. Even if this storm happened, it would require about 10 years. The matter of the future is for in the future, why worry about it right now.
But will it really happen that late? Perhaps it might…
No matter what was said, today's test situation had come to the end of the phase, everyone did what they needed to do respectively, leaving only some suspicions, some thoughts, and some rancor…
"What is it, don't come and annoy me, I don't do duels!"
After that duel, Ye Lang was looked for by people almost every single day to have a duel with him, but this time everyone wisened up. By no means would they let Ye Lang find a substitute, setting the rule to ban the use of "people" as weapons.
As to why Ye Lang didn't have anyone looking for him in the past, but it increasing recently, apart from the precedent case of him accepting a person's duel, there was still a very important reason.
Almost everybody's evaluation of Ye Lang had increased drastically, especially because he could test the princes and princesses, and have the Emperor's "recognition". A few people had originally felt that he wasn't the type of person who would threaten others, and now they started to feel some crisis.
Those who had initially chased after Princess Qi had never taken Ye Lang as a threat, and considered him as a minor character. But now they had started to look for trouble with Ye Lang. They wanted, by any means necessary, coerce Ye Lang to void his engagement with Princess Qi.
Ye Lang wasn't so gullable as to listen to the others' requests of wanting to break off the engagement, and rescinding it. Although he didn't put this marriage in his heart, but it couldn't be done whimsically, he still had to respect Princess Qi's decision. He wouldn't be like the other people, who, for their own sake, would let others be embarrassed.
Besides, Princess Qi had said it a lot of times already, that she wanted him to block all these senseless suitors. And he was willing to be the shield, after all, Princess Qi and him were good childhood friends.
"Since you don't even have the courage to accept our duels, then how are you going to protect Princess Qi, how dare you have the nerve to marry Princess Qi!"
"What's there to be ashamed about, it's okay if she likes it. Also what about my ability to protect her, do I have to tell you guys this? Anyways, currently she's my fiancee, so you guys better give up on her!" Regarding the critique, Ye Lang wasn't the least bit ashamed, who knows whether he's just brazen or completely lacking scruple.
But of course, the majority had felt it was the former!
Under this situation, the shield had hindered a portion of the people……
"We cannot let such a man marry Princess Qi, if you want to marry her, you have to ask us first!"
"What a joke, who are you people. Such rubbish! Scram! Or be careful of my vengeance, this 13th young master of the Ye family is not an exhibit to watch!!" Ye Lang slightly flared up while speaking.
Once again blocking a portion of people……
"The 13th young master of the Ye family, others are scared of you, but I'm not!!" An arrogant big shot came out saying, he indeed had good background and power, this was known by each and every person, and he also represented the small minority that wasn't afraid of Ye Lang.
"……Who are you?" Ye Lang didn't give him face and asked. At the scene, he was the only one that didn't know who he was.
"Ye Lang, he is the grandson of the empire's first Sword Saint: Li Danteng!" Explained Zhen Xiaoyan.
Sword3 Saint, Saber Saint, and so on is a special existence. No matter where, they would get exceptional status. Especially when the person is the empire's first Sword Saint, and when a man gets to the top, all his friends and relatives go there with him. While the Sword Saint is still healthy, his family and clan would all be well-off.
Of course, this only applies when he is still healthy, once the Sword Saint dies and his clan doesn't have any successor that has the ability to become a Sword Saint, then their status will dramatically plummet.
"It's an honor to meet you at last……" Ye Lang suddenly cupped one fist in the other hand4, and said it seriously.
Was this his respect to the Sword Saint? That can't be it. Knowing Ye Lang's character, he definitely wouldn't change his perspective just because the opponent is the Sword Saint's family, it's impossible even if it was the Sword Saint himself, even more so the grandson.
