Chapter 614 – Lighting up fires and looting (8)
Getting to the heart of the matter, wasn’t it also because of that loathsome girl?
A cold, stern smile appeared in the Empress’s eyes, this expression flashed by quickly and vanished without a trace . Once again glancing at the Empress, the Empress was as dignified and prudent as before .
After about an hour later, Nangong Liuyun arrived, with Su Luo following at his side .
Emperor Jing directly ignored Su Luo, scowling at Nangong Liuyun and angrily saying: “What are you doing? Rebelling ah?!”
Emperor Jing heavily slapped down the evidence sheets of impeachment and the legal seal on the table .
Such a small effort in a short time, and the impeachment papers for His Highness Prince Jin were like snowflakes falling in the imperial study . Stacked together, it was actually one third of a meter high .
At this moment, Emperor Jing’s heart was very displeased .
Both because of the Crown Prince’s stupidity was beyond belief, and also because of Nangong Liuyun’s fierce ruthlessness and heartlessness .
Nangong Liuyun gave a slight greeting, standing expressionlessly beneath the emperor .
“You tell me! What are you doing? Ordering a group of people to fight, set fires, and loot! A nice proper Imperial Capital is in turmoil because of your doings, there are cries of complaints from the people that filled the roads . You say something, you tell me, in the end, what you are doing!”
Confronted with Emperor Jing’s sudden rage, Nangong Liuyun was still unperturbed as the wind . The corner of his mouth actually even hooked into a ghost of a smile .
“Father Emperor, so many impeachment papers and you still can’t understand them?”
“We, the empire, is in the middle of asking you!!” Emperor Jing heavily slapped the table with the palm of his hand .
In front of this son, he really needed to find the dignity as the father and ruler .
It was always him spitting anger and flying into a rage, whereas the one being scolded was unperturbed without a ripple, calm and collected .
This made Emperor Jing feel like an idiot performing a one-man comedy show .
“Oh . ” Nangong Liuyun nodded, acting as if he was taking things very seriously . He asked, deadly seriously: “Father Emperor, everywhere under heaven, isn’t returning a debt right and proper?”
Emperor Jing was immediately stumped by the question, he found the time to glance at the Crown Prince, seeing his evasive expression, Emperor Jing couldn’t help but sigh in his heart .
The Crown Prince had now changed into this appearance, he couldn’t avoid saying this was to the second child’s credit .
Second child was truly too outstanding and dazzling . Over these years, the Crown Prince had always lived in his shadow, it was also no wonder that he would take the wrong path .
Emperor Jing gave a dry cough: “How could he, with no cause or reason, owe you so many crystal stones? Perhaps you had planned it?”
With regards to schemes, if second child wanted to trap the eldest, the eldest child would never be able to escape .
The Crown Prince raised his eyes in a flash and said in a stern voice: “Father Emperor is wise, this is precisely a scheme Nangong Liuyun set up against this son, your official!”
The corner of Nangong Liuyun’s mouth suggested a mocking expression . He indifferently cast a glance at the Crown Prince, a sidelong glance that was cast disdainfully from high above at him: “Oh? So easily trapped by other people, isn’t this Crown Prince too stupid?”
Su Luo, who was standing beside Nangong Liuyun, drew in a cold breath of air .
In front of the emperor and empress, Nangong Liuyun actually dared speak such a thing, ah . His poisonous tongue danced, nothing was taboo, didn’t he see the emperor and empress’s complexion were already rigid .
“You——” The Crown Prince’s rage in his heart soared to the heavens, but unfortunately, he didn’t have the kind of poisonous tongue that Nangong Liuyun had . So, a retort wouldn’t come out .
Emperor Jing helplessly heaved a sigh .
“Enough, you shut up . ” Emperor Jing berated the Crown Prince and turned to Nangong Liuyun to say: “Second child, give Father Emperor some face, let this matter end here, how about it?”
Even an honest and upright official would have difficulty resolving a family dispute, Emperor Jing had an extreme headache .
Emperor Jing’s words were clearly partial to the Crown Prince .
Because of the noisy activity that Nangong Liuyun had created, taking all of the Crown Prince’s loss into account, it was no more than several hundred green-colored crystal stones .
But now, this old emperor wanted to settle the debt just like this with a stroke of a brush .
The Crown Prince was secretly delighted, if it was indeed so, he figured he could still accept it .
However, Nangong Liuyun was never a person who would let himself suffer a loss……
