Evil Emperor's Wild Consort - chapter-269
Elder Zhao’s face was now a terrifying sight. He never expected for the
Master to suddenly make an appearance here. Didn’t Second Master say that
the Master was preoccupied with the Young Master’s illness and had no
time to bother about these matters? He wondered.
Otherwise, he would never have dared to arrive in the Imperial Household
with such prestige!
Elder Zhao fiercely gritted his teeth at the thought and said, “I
received word that there would be a great change in the Imperial
Household. The Empress and the Sixth Prince have schemed against the law,
not only have they planted false evidence against Imperial Concubine Lin
and the Imperial Advisor, they have even planned to exterminate the
illustrious Third Prince! His Royal Highness, Pang Fei is not only highly
gifted but is highly resourceful and worldly as well. He is the best
candidate to inherit the Imperial Throne. Having him is a great fortune
for Black Tortoise Country and the Xia Family. How could I stand idly by
while others persecute such precious talent? So I took the initiative in
the name of the Xia Family, to protect this precious talent!”
No matter what, the Imperial Throne can only belong to the Third Prince.
He is far superior in every aspect when compared to the Fifth and Sixth
Prince. That is why Elder Zhao dared to speak so boldly, he was certain
that the Master would not blame him for this.
After all, he’s doing all of this for the sake of the Xia family!
Pang Fei shot a glance at Pang Ran, and a strange haze flashed across his
gaze. He then looked towards Master Xia, who remained steadfast in the
wind, and spoke in a neither servile nor overbearing tone, “Master of the
Xia Family, I do not believe that I have the capabilities to bear the
mantle of the Emperor of a kingdom, but my Fifth Imperial Brother is
hedonistic, constantly infatuated with women, my Sixth Imperial Brother
is a born good-for-nothing, vicious and merciless, and will not stop
until he gets what he wants. I cannot bear for Black Tortoise Country to
fall into the hands of these two traitors. Hence, I have no choice but to
accept the position. But please rest assured, Master Xia, I will lead
Black Tortoise Country to glory. I won’t disappoint you.”
His face beamed with a confident smile. Those words should be enough to
convince Master Xia into insisting that he should be the Emperor instead,
he thought. And I, who cannot endure the sight of Black Tortoise Country
falling into the hands of traitors, who has not betrayed the patronage of
the Xia Family for the Imperial Throne, has no choice but to accept
Master Xia’s request.
“Oh?” Master Xia raised an eyebrow, and turned his gaze, coldly and
majestically, towards Pang Fei, “You claim to say that the Sixth Prince
is vicious and merciless? As far as I’ve heard, it is true that the Sixth
Prince is indeed born a good-for-nothing. But vicious and merciless? That
“Master Xia, everything I’ve said is true. It is only that Pang Ran has
managed to mask his true intentions too well and has conspired with an
outsider to bring harm upon the Imperial Household. The woman standing
next to him is the Master of the Hundred Herb Hall from Azure Dragon
Country, Gu Ruoyun. She came here harboring ill intentions. If her goal
is not to take over the whole of Black Tortoise Country, then I cannot
understand why she would help this useless good-for-nothing and plant
false charges on my Imperial Concubine mother! Furthermore, the Hundred
Herb Hall has grand ambitions, I have long heard that they have coveted
the Xia Family like a tiger watching its prey.”
Pang Fei laughed coldly, his gloomy eyes carried a hint of viciousness.
He believed that Master Xia would never let off this meddlesome woman
after hearing his words!
Sure enough, Master Xia’s cold gaze now turned towards Gu Ruoyun. His old
face carried a solemn chill, and spoke in a serious tone, “You are Gu
Ruoyun of the Hundred Herb Hall? I’ve been looking forward to meeting you
for a very long time. But why have you come to Black Tortoise Country,
Lady Ruoyun? I don’t believe that there’s anything of interest for you
Faced with Master Xia’s interrogation, Gu Ruoyun’s face remained calm and
unchanged. Her pure, beautiful features carried a soft smile, her clear
eyes like water, she giggled lightly, “If I said that I have come to see
the Xia Family. Would you believe me?”
Master Xia said nothing more. In that moment, the entire Imperial Court
fell silent. So quiet that everyone could hear the thumping sound of
their own hearts.
