Chapter 608 – Lighting up fires and looting (2)
The Crown Prince sought the pleasures of life, his courtyard mansions were built sumptuously, in the best district of the entire city .
In this kind of a district, only high officials and nobles comes and goes .
Even these high officials and nobles who wanted to purchase a house in the best district with the most expensive land, also found it extremely difficult .
Because once this kind of residence was placed on the market, there would be countless people trying to snatch it right away, thus raising the price .
The final sale price would often make people’s heartbeat speed up .
But at this moment, the most gorgeously built residences in these districts, were set on fire by lots of bright torches .
The residences that made countless people look up at, now were being mercilessly engulfed by a large fire . The flames soared, dark smoke curling up .
The group of people that set the fire were like fiends with an imposing and threatening manner . Nobody dared to approach, they could only stand far in the distance, pointing the fingers of blame .
“Oh heavens, isn’t this one of His Highness Crown Prince’s residence? How dare someone set it on fire? Even more, they so brazenly did it? Don’t they want to live?”
“You don’t know a damn thing! Do you know the person that set it on fire? That is His Highness Prince Jin, now, you tell me, does he dare to or not?”
“His Highness Prince Jin? How can this be……”
“I heard the Crown Prince owed His Highness Prince Jin three thousand green-colored crystal stones, couldn’t repay this debt and disappeared . His Highness Prince Jin is using this kind of vengeful manner to look for the Crown Prince!”
“So it’s actually like this…… His Highness Prince Jin is worthy of being His Highness Prince Jin, he can even think of this kind of peculiar way to look for people . ”
“Indeed! The Crown Prince can owe anyone else and it will be fine, but he owed a debt to His Highness Prince Jin, of all people . Did he really believe that our Highness Prince Jin was like clay that could be shaped by him?”
“Exactly, burning these residences, does it even count? It’s better to also burn down the Crown Prince’s official residence!”
Among the people, His Highness Prince Jin’s reputation was always celebrated . By comparison, His Highness Crown Prince was dull without any light .
Because of the constant, heartfelt worship for His Highness Prince Jin, the public opinion would overwhelmingly lean towards Nangong Liuyun .
When Su Luo, who was hidden among the crowd while watching this play, heard these people’s comments, she couldn’t help shaking her head with a forced smile .
That the matter of looting and plundering could be praised and approved like this since time immemorial, it could have only happened because of Nangong Liuyun, right?
Su Luo really couldn’t understand .
According to Nangong Liuyun’s cruel, arrogant and untamed nature with volatile mood swings that’s brutal and reeking of blood, the masses ought to only respect him from a distance . At least, he should be regarded as the existence of a baby crying at night .
However, reality was quite the opposite .
No matter how bloody Nangong Liuyun’s behaviour was, or how excessively far he took it, people would still praise him to the heavens .
In their eyes, everything His Highness Prince Jin did was right, if it was wrong, then definitely, it was the other party’s fault . This kind of incomparable and unconditional trust, in the end, how did it come about? Su Luo was extremely curious about it .
The entire imperial capital were all stirred up, then where was the Crown Prince from the party that was involved?
This conversation must start in the wee hours of the morning .
At that time, the Crown Prince was pacing in his room . He paced and paced, suddenly thinking of that time when he built the Crown Prince’s Manor . He had built a secret passageway underneath his study that led to the imperial palace .
This secret passageway, outside of he, himself, even the emperor didn’t know about it .
At that time, the Crown Prince’s eyes lit up and directly selected to escape .
It seemed to him, Nangong Liuyun was a person who valued his face very much, so if he wasn’t there, then Nangong Liuyun wouldn’t make a huge disturbance over this matter . Then, this matter would be settled by leaving it unsettled .
Therefore, at that time, he had fled without the slightest hesitation .
However, what he didn’t know, was that this time, the person who provoked this hatred happened to be Liangdi Meng, who he had favored the most from before .
Thousands, no, ten thousands of should not, this Liangdi Meng should not have offended Su Luo .
Nangong Liuyun never held a grudge, because if he had a hatred, he naturally would avenge it on the spot .
But, if someone dared to offend his treasured Luo Luo, then, it wouldn’t be as simple as avenging a hatred . This hatred would also bring disaster to their relatives .
