Huan Qing Yan suddenly paused at the words, 'Execution?'
That fast? Huan Meng Yue met her end just like this?
Bai Cheng Feng did not protect her?
Huan Qing Yan's instincts were telling her that something was not right. It was impossible for Bai Cheng Feng to not protect her, at least she would never be killed.
Despite the commotion caused, the royal family would never execute a person that possesses an Egg Star Talent and the abilities of a God Chosen, albeit a fake one, for the sake of a declining family of nobility. Instead, it would be more likely that they would send her to the Hou Family to apologize and seek forgiveness while the emperor would act as a mediator by compensating them with riches and at the same time reducing Bai Cheng Feng's benefits as punishment. Or at worst, they would lock Huan Meng Yue up in prison for a few years…
Was it because that a life was lost? This outcome was because the situation got out of hand?
"Mama, let us head there then. Huan Meng Yue might have broken ties with the Huan Family, but she was still someone that grew up under our care and has no close relatives here. Although she is heartless, but we are not, let us go collect her corpse."
"Okay." Madam Huan agreed.
The housekeeper went to prepare the carriage, they did not bring Little Xing Han along this time as they were afraid that the bloody scene of execution would be too much for a young boy like him to handle. In addition, Madam Huan still had some lingering phobia of what happened when she brought him out the last time.
As the mother and daughter were about to board the carriage, a muscular figure running like the wind came towards them.
"Ah ah ah…" it was Huan Jiu Li!
He reached Huan Qing Yan and pulled at her hand while carefully inspecting her from top to bottom, his eyes were red as he tried to communicate with various gestures.
Noise came out from his mouth but none of them were recognizable words.
When Huan Qing Yan saw this emotional youth, she noticed the assortment of feelings coming out from him: worry, anger, remorse… and murderous intent!
Huan Qing Yan was shocked; an introverted youth like him could actually emit such powerful killing intent, was it due to what had happened to her?
She quickly placated him, "Brother Jiu Li, I am fine, it has been hours since I returned home. Although I was buried under the mountain while saving Xing Han, fortunately, Young Master Ya saved us. So I am fine, we are all well… Look, I have actually put on some weight." Huan Qing Yan stretched her arm and pinched it a couple of times.
Huan Jiu Li's agitated emotions also slowly calmed down.
"Ah Ah Ah…" he gestured.
Huan Qing Yan was able to understand him, "I know it is hard for you to come out of the palace. I also know that despite not being by my side, you are constantly concerned about me."
Huan Jiu Li revealed a faint smile on his face before a remorseful expression replaced it.
"No, Brother Jiu Li. You are not strong enough and naturally will not be able to protect me. However, I believe that you will surely become powerful in the future. When that happens, I will be under your care!"
Huan Jiu Li immediately pat his chest loudly.
Madam Huan lightly coughed, "Jiu Li, since you are here. Why not come with us, we are going to the execution grounds…"
Huan Qing Yan looked at him with eyes of anticipation.
Huan Jiu Li nodded his head in agreement and the trio boarded the carriage.
Along the way, Huan Qing Yan asked in concern about Huan Jiu Li's life in the palace as an Imperial Chef. Huan Jiu Li replied her queries with various gestures.
Some answers were not clear, so she could only guess.
Huan Qing Yan suddenly had an idea, she wondered if it was possible to cure Huan Jiu Li's muteness? If she continued to increase the level of the dimension and the Medicinal Food Room was unlocked…
There might be a solution inside.
"Brother Jiu Li, were you born mute?"
