Chapter 611 – Lighting up fires and looting (5)
The Crown Prince’s heart was immediately ignited, and he patted his chest until it resounded with booming sounds: “Right! I am the Crown Prince, I am the true and only future master of this empire, Nangong Liuyun counts as nothing but a fart!”
Just when the mother and son were conversing, suddenly, the sound of hurried footsteps from outside could be heard .
A young court eunuch in the dark blue-colored court eunuch clothes ran in, crying out in alarm: “You Highness Crown Prince, something incredibly bad has occurred!”
The Crown Prince’s heart skipped a beat, he had a very bad promotion .
He, who was originally full of confidence, now, a touch of fear flashed through his eyes .
The Empress remained calm and unperturbed sitting in the crown seat, with a stiff, ice-cold face, she said: “If you have something to say, say it slowly, what could be so urgent?”
That court eunuch gasped until his breath evened out, and then hastily said: “Reporting back to the Empress, an incredibly bad event has occurred, the several residences under His Highness Crown Prince’s name, have all been lit on fire and burned until they were all gone!
“What?” The Crown Prince immediately stood up, his face filled with a shocked expression .
Those several residences of his, were not just some ordinary residences . Each and every one one of those residences that were constructed had a huge price tag . The most important matter was that, from the outside, they looked like residences, but inside, they were warehouses where he stored a lot of treasures ah…… The more the Crown Prince thought, the more anxious he became, wishing he could immediately grow wings to fly over there!
“Yes, that’s right, it’s not limited to this today . It is being reported that the imperial capital is in quite a disorder . In order to find your Highness the Crown Prince, His Highness Prince Jin created huge sounds of activity in the city . ”
“This…… These are all Nangong Liuyun’s doings?” The Crown Prince was immediately stunned, losing his head out of fear as he looked towards the Empress .
Just a minute ago, he was encouraged by the Empress’s words, with his confidence swelling . But now, hearing this news, immediately, like a punctured ball, he deflated .
The Empress saw the Crown Prince’s behavior, and a thread of displeasure flashed through her eyes . She frowned, finally saying only an indifferent, short sentence: “Go out to take a look . ”
Standing on the imperial palace’s highest bright moon stairs, the entire imperial capital was plainly visible .
Even though it was a huge distance away, you could still vaguely see it clearly .
Seeing the flames soaring into the sky where all the residences were located, the Crown Prince’s face immediately turned ashen . His hands at his side clenched tightly into fists, clearly, he was already extremely furious .
That’s right, they were all his houses!
Nangong Liuyun, I will kill you!!! The Crown Prince furiously clenched his fists, both of his eyes scarlet red . He was itching to rush up to Nangong Liuyun and smash him down with one fist strike .
“Mother Empress, didn’t you say that second brother would not……” The Crown Prince’s heart cried tears of blood ah .
Those were all houses he was fond of, that he built with utmost care and the costs were innumerable . But at this moment, they were all turned to ashes by a huge fire .
The Empress’s complexion now was also exceptionally ugly .
She completely hadn’t anticipated, that this time, Nangong Liuyun would actually be this fierce, this malicious!
Originally, she had thought she had already overestimated Nangong Liuyun . She never expected that he was even fiercer than she had imagined, even more malicious, with even more determined methods of attack!
“Mother Empress, what’s to be done ah? You think of a way ah!” The Crown Prince was furious and also anxious, nearly falling apart .
The Empress glanced at him harshly: “Why so worried, the heavens haven’t collapsed yet!”
“The heavens may not have collapsed, but my Crown Prince mansion quickly collapsed ah……” that was a large part of his assets ah .
“Humph! Nangong Liuyun actually dares to so openly burn your residences, so condescendingly . Does he still have His Majesty the Emperor in his eyes?” The Empress raised the corner of her mouth with a hazed over expression, “Rest assured, this time, he brought about his own demise . ”
The Crown Prince was somewhat disbelieving, but seeing the Empress so confident, he couldn’t help but to start half-believing……Could it truly be possible?
The captain of the looting team and the rest also did not leave empty-handed . Everyone had a list in their hands, that list had noted the extent of their responsibility and target .
