He Has a Sickness that Needs to be Cured - Chapter 117
“And when I informed the seventh prince about the marriage to the spirit clan as ordered by the Immortal Emperor. The seventh prince thought that it was me who caused it to happen…… The seventh prince had been resenting me for a long time. After that, I also went to search the seventh prince’s palace,” Huo Xiu plausibly said, “but I only searched it because of suspicion, and there was no actual evidence. If I have wronged the seventh prince, I am willing to apologize.”
He didn’t say Xi Ning’s motives, nor did he say whether the treasures of the devil clan were with Xi Ning. He only said what actually happened and his own speculations. The Immortal Emperor frowned. “Why didn’t you say it before?”
Huo Xiu lowered his head, only to repeat it again. “Immortal Emperor, please forgive me.”
Xi Ning was still one of the candidates for marriage of the spirit clan. The Immortal Emperor’s attitude was unclear. How could he dare to file a complaint directly? Besides, it seemed that this matter was almost over and Si TuZhao even came to the Immortal Palace as the Devil Lord.
Since Si TuZhao made it clear that he was targeting himself, he also had to cause some trouble for them.
There was also Si TuZhao. This devil was extremely arrogant. He didn’t even change his appearance when he sneaked into the Immortal Palace. There must be someone who had seen Chu Yi before, when they find out that he looks exactly like Chu Yi, let’s see how he explained it to the Immortal Emperor……
After listening to his words, Si TuZhao looked thoughtful. “The seventh prince? This……”
He turned his head to look at the Immortal Emperor, who sighed softly. “Devil Lord, you can take care of it as you please, if it is my son…… you don’t need to be merciful.”
These words sounded selfless on the surface, but Huo Xiu’s mouth twitched. He did not believe that the Immortal Emperor had never doubted Si TuZhao before. If he really wanted to investigate Xi Ning, he should have made someone else go instead. There was no way that he could discover anything if he let Si TuZhao take care of it.
Huo Xiu did not dare to say that he suspected Si TuZhao was the low-level devil next to Xi Ning in front of Si TuZhao. He was thinking about how to convince the Immortal Emperor to replace Si TuZhao for the search. The Immortal Emperor leaned on the back of his chair and pinched his eyebrows. “You can leave first.”
Huo Xiu couldn’t say more, so he replied, “Yes.”
After he left, Si TuZhao also asked to be excused by the Immortal Emperor. “What General Huo said just now is a bit credible. I will go to the seventh prince’s palace to see if there is any abnormality, so I won’t disturb the Immortal Emperor’s rest.”
The Immortal Emperor restored his usual gentle appearance and nodded slightly.
Xi Ning was in the courtyard when Si TuZhao brought his subordinates with him.
When he moved the recliner to the middle of the courtyard and wanted to lie down to enjoy the sun, he saw Uncle Rong rushing over with a strange expression. “Your Royal Highness……The Devil Lord brought some people over and said that he wanted to search the palace.”
He acted the same as Huo Xiu before. Uncle Rong was shocked when he saw Si TuZhao’s face. How could this devil look the same as Chu Yi…… In a short time, he had a few thoughts in his mind, but he did not show it on his face and came to inform Xi Ning.
Xi Ning didn’t know why Si TuZhao came. He got up and tidied up his clothes. “Then…… let him in.”
After a while, Si TuZhao came to Xi Ning. When others were around, he looked cold.
“I am here to search for the treasure of the Devil Realm. I believe Your Royal Highness has also received the verbal order from the Immortal Emperor.”
Of course Xi Ning knew about this. He also knew that Si TuZhao had searched Huo Xiu’s palace first, and now he came directly to him. Xi Ning didn’t know if something was wrong, and stood calmly on the spot.
Si TuZhao raised his hand, and the people behind him immediately went to various places in the hall.
Si TuZhao did not stand still either. He walked along the corridor and looked around. When he came to the door of Xi Ning’s bedroom, he said, “Is this your bedroom, Your Royal Highness? Please open the door, I need to go in and investigate.”
Xi Ning had been following him silently, trying to see what he was going to do, and almost rolled his eyes when he heard this.
