At the same time…!
This man’s dark eyes honed in on Ye Qianli accurately!
In that instant, Ye Qianli felt as if she was watching erupting sunspots. There was a super terrifying magnetic field that was about to suck in her heart and soul.
Ye Qianli could clearly hear her own heart racing from the fright that she had given herself. She even found it somewhat difficult to breathe. She felt that something was extremely wrong.
The look in this man’s eyes was so scary! She felt that it was a bit hard to withstand his gaze…
“His Highness, the Crown Prince, may you live for a thousand years.”
Fortunately, at that moment, everyone in the Southern Palace began to kowtow in unison.
Ye Qianli lowered her eyes and imitated the crowd without leaving a trace. She made a proper bow.
Must she be so ‘accurate’? The man she ‘slept’ with happened to be the man who was going to be engaged to her? Who also happened to be the crown prince of the dynasty? This… This piece of sh*t luck…
“His Highness, the Crown Prince! His Highness, the Crown Prince actually came here?! Am I dreaming?!”
“My god… In the last ten thousand years of our dynasty, His Highness is the only Master Deity who has received the recognition of the Vermilion Bird Temple, Deity… He is a deity! Ahhh—”
“I can’t take it anymore. I’m having trouble breathing. I—”
“Shut up, everyone! His Highness is here!”
At this moment, everyone in the hall was extremely excited because of his arrival, but when this crown prince stepped into the Southern Palace’s entrance, the entire hall instantly fell silent!
It was as if the discussions just now were all ghostly voices and did not exist at all.
The Vermilion Bird Dynasty’s Crown Prince, Rong Mo, was not only the crown prince. He was also the only person—in the last ten thousand years—to have opened the Vermilion Bird Temple and obtained the Vermilion Bird God’s recognition. Possessing the rights of a Master Deity, he was the disciple of the Vermilion Bird.
However, such a god-like figure was recklessly ‘violated’ by Ye Qianli just now.
Ye Qianli: “…” Inwardly, she wanted to say that she seemed to have hit the jackpot.
However, before Ye Qianli could secretly rejoice, she felt a certain deity’s gaze that was completely intent on tearing her apart. It made her heart beat rapidly.
“Calm down, calm down. You have an alibi. You were with a sc*mbag younger cousin back then…” Ye Qianli tried to brainwash herself over and over. She quickly thought of how she could deal with the situation once the other party made things difficult for her.
Ye Qianli understood that, no matter what, she had to get rid of the ‘suspicion’ of her sleeping with him! She definitely could not let him get hold of any evidence that it was her, or else she would definitely die immediately.
Because of Rong Mo’s arrival, Ye Fengtian had no time to care about the original mess. He eagerly went up to welcome this Deity-class Crown Prince.
Taking advantage of this moment, Granny Nan—who was beside Su Qin and had obviously been instructed by Su Qin—was secretly bringing the ‘dirty’ Ye Qianli away from the side.
Ye Qianli was extremely willing and naturally cooperated with her. Just as she was about to be successfully brought into a side palace hall…!
Ye Qianli’s heart was also in her throat. She took a step forward and was about to throw herself into the side hall. After all, although she had a million excuses to deal with the impending trouble…
If she could go back and ‘wipe out all traces’ first and make more preparations, that would be even more perfect! However… Her imagination was beautiful, but reality was cruel.
Just as Ye Qianli stepped into the side hall with one foot and was about to dodge inside! The moment before she escaped—
“Stop right there.”
A distant, clear, and cold voice froze everyone’s movements, including Ye Fengtian’s words of pleasantries.
Of course, it also froze Ye Qianli who wanted to run into the side chamber without any care. She did not dare to take another step at all because she could clearly sense that as long as she dared to move…
The owner of that gaze fixed at the back of her head could let her get acquainted with the King of Hell…
“You, turn around.”
Rong Mo said those words to the back of Ye Qianli’s head in an indisputable tone.
Ye Qianli: “…”
She wanted to pretend that she couldn’t hear anything and run away with Granny Nan, but she knew that she couldn’t. After all, if she ran away, wouldn’t that be a definite show of guilt?
Since she could not escape, Ye Qianli could only turn her head back without hesitation. She bravely and openly walked forward, bowed towards Rong Mo solemnly, and then said, “Ye Qianli pays her respects to Your Highness, the Crown Prince. May Your Highness live for a thousand years.”
This bow of hers was neither humble nor arrogant. She was neither embarrassed by how filthy she was nor fearful of being caught.
That calm and magnanimous attitude caused Rong Mo’s astute eyes to narrow slightly.
At this moment, Ye Fengtian—who saw that things were not going well—managed to resist Rong Mo’s aura and coughed lightly. “We’ve made a fool of ourselves in front of the crown prince. My daughter has just met with an accident. Your Highness, please allow her to go and freshen up so that she doesn’t sully your eyes. How about it?”
Even though he was the heir of the Northern Territory—who controlled an army of a million soldiers, Ye Fengtian did not dare to overstep his boundaries when facing the Crown Prince and his future son-in-law.
“Oh? Where did Miss Ye go? What accident did she encounter?” Unexpectedly, Rong Mo took the opportunity to stare at Ye Qianli as he asked. The killing intent in his ink-black eyes was about to devour and annihilate the person he was staring at!
The corners of Ye Qianli’s lips curled up slightly, and she immediately replied in a dignified manner, “Reporting to Your Highness. I went to the Northern Palace earlier, and there was an incident of being poisoned by Tian Yu Night Queen Flower.”
Ye Qianli’s words caused everyone’s gazes to fall onto Su Lianhua once more.
No one had forgotten that Ye Qianli had said earlier, that Su Lianhua was the one who had made her eat the Tian Yu Night Queen Flower.
At this moment, Su Lianhua was clearly looking at Rong Mo in a daze. There was an obvious look of infatuation in her eyes. Now that everyone was suddenly paying attention to her, she panicked. “I…”
“That’s right, Younger Sister Hua, were you so frightened when you saw how much pain I was in, that you didn’t even dare to swallow the Tian Yu Night Queen Flower anymore? Were you also afraid of being punished by Father, so you left me behind and came back in a panic?” Ye Qianli acted as if she hadn’t noticed Su Lianhua’s panic, and she even revealed an expression of sudden realization as she held up one side of the handkerchief and asked seriously.
“No, it’s not like that… I…” Su Lianhua wanted to defend herself, but no matter how eloquent she was, she did not dare to say anything since Ye Qianli had the evidence.
As for Ye Qianli?
She had already intimately stepped forward to hold Su Lianhua’s hand. She said very gladly and naively, “Younger Sister Hua, you’re really quick-witted. That Tian Yu Night Queen Flower is really poisonous. Even with my physique, I couldn’t take it. Thankfully, you didn’t swallow it! Compared to the so-called top-notch cultivators, we’re really too inferior. We can’t compare at all. We can’t handle the poison from that flower.”
“However, Younger Sister Hua, when you saw that I was already poisoned, why didn’t you get someone to come save me? How could you leave me behind? Do you know that I was almost poisoned to death! I almost couldn’t see my parents or you anymore?”
As soon as these words were spoken…!
