Fu Yunruo and Uncle Guo had just entered the supermarket and taken a shopping cart when Fu Yunruo’s phone rang. She took it out and saw Si Yue’s name on the caller ID. After the call was connected, Wenwen’s tender voice came from the receiver, “Mom, where are you?”
The disciples left Cangwu secret realm one after another. Lu Yaoyao and Shen Changyuan, who were hiding in the depths of the woods, watched them disappear one by one. “We don’t have a token; how do we go out?” Lu Yaoyao was anxious.
Lu Yaoyao originally wanted to steal a token from a disciple, but stopped herself after finding out that the number of tokens was fixed, meaning that the owner of a stolen token wouldn’t be able to leave the secret realm. Moreover, leaving with a token would make them appear at the place where the original user first entered the secret realm. As far as Lu Yaoyao knew, most of these people were disciples of a sect, and they entered and left the secret realm from their respective sect.
Was it an illusion array?
Deep in thought, Meng Qi extended her fingers and quickly drew the array in the air. She was absentminded — If Yun Qingyan was here, he must know what this was… The next moment, she remembered that she had left the Great Wilderness Island through that one-way mirror. Despite still being in the Starfallen Sea, she and Yun Qingyan were now separated by a considerable distance.
In the Ciqing Palace, Du Ruo stood nervously next to Cheng Yujin’s seat. Seeing they were currently alone at the moment, she finally couldn’t hold back, “Your Highness, did that former palace maid… tell the truth?”
The Yang family was currently in the middle of a vortex. The murder case of Yang Fucheng’s only grandson and the scandal it caused had yet been concluded, and now his wife was also dragged into the mud. Murdering an empress, if true, was a crime totally on a different level from the blatant killing of a civilian.
Fu Yunruo got into the car and saw Wenwen sitting in a child seat, happily talking to Si Yue. The sight of a child seat installed in such a luxury card was quite abrupt for Fu Yunruo, so she asked in surprise, “Do you have children, Mr. Yue?”
Could it be that Mr. Yue was married?! She indeed never asked about Si Yue’s private affairs, and her understanding of him was mainly based on public information.
Because Lu Qingyu instantly knew when Lu Yaoyao returned safe and sound, Yao Jiuxiao naturally knew it too. At the time, he was inside the ten thousand years old ice chamber, meditating with his eyes closed, exuding an aura that was even colder than the perpetual coldness of the ice chamber.
When Yao Jiuxiao slowly opened his eyes, his deep gaze, as cold as the ice cave itself, slowly melted to reveal overflowing gentleness. He stood up, left the ice chamber, and returned to his residence in a blink of an eye.
“Meng Qiqi.” When Meng Qi was immersed in memories, Xue Chengxuan walked slowly to her side, “The Medical Society Alliance has a certain rule, did you know?”
“Huh?” Meng Qi raised her eyebrows.
“???” The blue brocade bag embroidered with a beautiful floral pattern felt almost weightless on Meng Qi’s hand. Out of habit, she poured a bit of aura to see the contents of the bag, and then—
“Su Junmo!” Meng Qi gasped in shock. There were nine hundred profound-grade spirit stones in the bag! It was not a small amount of wealth by any standard. She had previously taken 2000 profound-grade spirit stones from the Xue clan and used a handful of them during the Grand Tournament, but there were still more than 1900 left.
The tragedy of the Shao family quickly reached the imperial court. The bloodletter a life for a life’ that Shao Zi wrote before taking her own life left a deep, heavy impression on the whole incident. The capital was where the emperor resided, and it had never seen such an atrocious incident before. Some old-fashioned officials almost went mad with rage. One of such old veterans took off his official robe and went to the morning court the next day dressed in civilian clothes. Upon seeing the emperor, he bowed his head and knelt down, “A life for a life is natural justice. This subject is willing to give up my old life to beg Your Majesty today. Please punish Senior Grand Secretary Yang and remove the harm from the common people!”
Yang Xiaoyu seemed to be exhausted. He closed his eyes and said sleepily, “Being my woman, you will benefit endlessly. As long as you serve me well, I can ignore the trouble you caused me until now. Don’t worry about my mother and grandmother — they won’t do anything to you with me here. Look, isn’t this Young Master treating you extremely well? Learn to please me, and good days will come to you. You should give birth to a child for this Young Master; a boy would be the best. Maybe you can become the mother-in-law of an imperial princess in the future. My cousin sister is already Shou Wangfei, and she is the future empress. As long as I make the request, she will surely wed a princess to my son.”
